Bhasma: The Bath of Fire

Bhasma : The Bath of Fire

The application of bhasma or ashes forms an integral part of tattva shuddhisadhana, as it is a symbol of physical purification, as well as subtle and causal realms. Mahayogi Shiva, who is considered to be the father of tantra, is depicted naked and his whole body is besmeared with bhasma. Thus it is considered to be an auspicious act of discovering your shiva nature. Read More

Asceticism in Family Life

Asceticism in Family Life

Married people hear this saying, “getting married and raising a family is getting entrapped in the shackles of Maya (illusion, worldly attachment)” every now and then. To the bachelors, family life and household is like being trapped inside a web of problems and tensions.For them remaining unmarried seems like being in heaven. But if you think about it, this statement turns out to be quite frivolous and meaningless. This is because Maya is not cast through external objects or other human beings. It is our own attitudes and thoughts which engulf us into maya and illusion. Read More

Concept of Heaven and Hell

Concept of Heaven and Hell

Who are Yamduts and Chandragupta ?

What is RIP and why do we confess in a Church ?

How are we punished for our Sins ?

Is the concept of good and bad deeds,heaven and hell a reality or just a subconsciousness of ours?

Neither does God become angry with those who commit mistakes or sins, nor does he punish anyone.

Where do we go after Death astral world

Where do we go after Death?

It would soon become clear that the world in which the soul lives after the death in the material world is not a remote existence somewhere far above in the space. We know for instance, that X-rays penetrate through solid objects, whereas for a living person even a wall restricts movement. Heat and cold too pass through physical barriers to a certain extent. That is to say, the movements of extra-sensory finer elements cannot be stopped by physical objects. On the other hand, though material barriers obstruct our activities, we hardly ever feel the presence of the finer elements of the beautiful nature around us until we greet death like an old friend and depart from this life.So how huge is this astral world ?

The Nadi System (Channel Of Our Life Force) nadis

The Nadi System (Channel Of Our Life Force)

Imagine the rush of energy that you experience when you are excited. Try to feel the channels through which the energy flows out during such experiences. At first  this may seem incomprehensible, but these energy flows may be traced when you focus. Modern science explains this process in terms of nerve impulses, but the ancient seers perceived it as energy and consciousness flowing through interconnected channels in our body called nadis, which form an energy network.The word nadi means ‘flow’. Thus nadis are subtle flows of energy, just as electricity, radio waves and laser beams are subtle flows. Nadis relate to the energy in our body and should not be confused with nerves, which relate to the physical body. Nadis are pathways of pranic, mental and spiritual currents, which form a matrix throughout the physical body. They provide energy to every cell, and every organ through their vast network, carrying prana back and forth in every direction.
