RETURNING TO THE SOURCE

2 days ago
“The whole yoga is a methodology: how to uncover it which is so hidden, how to open the doors within yourself, how to enter the temple that you are, how to discover yourself. You are there, you have been there from the very beginning, but you have not discovered it. The treasure is carried by you every moment. Every breath you take in or out, the treasure is there. You may not be aware, but you have never missed it. “You may be completely oblivious, but you have never lost it. You may have forgotten it completely, but there is no way to lose it – because you are it. So the only question is: how to discov...

STRETCH YOURSELF TO GET UNSTRESSED

Many countries which do not know our language, tradition, or culture, are now connecting to India through Yoga. The practice, which connects body, mind and soul, has played a big role in binding the world too. Earlier, Yoga was only restricted to saints and seers in the Himalayan mountains. Now, it has become part of every person’s life. For attaining “wellness” through yoga was more important than simply being physically fit. It is not important to perform yoga for 24 hours. 50 or 60 minutes (is fine) because it lends harmony to the body, mind and intellect. If 1.25 billion Indians and people aro...

ACTION AGAINST CFCS BE REPLICATED ON PLASTICS

a week ago
It may be true that the world is drowning in plastics. However, in the last few weeks, we are submerged more in statistics than in plastics. For example: One million plastic drinking water bottles are purchased every minute, five trillion single-use plastic bags are used worldwide every year, half of all plastic produced is designed to be used only once and then thrown away. The world has produced till date about 8.3 billion tonnes of plastics, which is more than one tonne per person. Out of the global plastic production of 380 million tonnes in 2016, equivalent of the total weight of the human population, only about 10 p...

ACCEPT FEAR DENIAL WILL NOT HELP

a week ago
If there is fear and you start doing something about it, then a new fear enters: fear of fear. It becomes more complex. So if fear is there, accept it, because anything you do out of fear will create more fear and confusion. Acceptance dissolves; only acceptance, nothing else. If you fight, you create another disturbance and this can go on ad infinitum. If you have one problem, don’t create another. What will happen if you accept fear? Suddenly you will feel it has disappeared. And this is the inner alchemy — a problem disappears if you accept it, and a problem grows more and more complex if you create any conflict w...

CRUSH OCEAN PLASTIC WORLDOCEANSDAY

2 weeks ago
This is a time for people around our blue planet to celebrate and honour the ocean, which connects us all. Working together, we can and will protect our shared ocean.  There are many reasons why the ocean is vital us. But why do we love it? Is it because of the spiritual awakening and calm the ocean brings us? Are we drawn to it because we need it, or do we just love its everlasting waves? I love the ocean because of the beautiful creatures living in it and its mesmerizing waters, constantly changing colour from deep hues of blue to crystal sea greens. I firmly believe we should protect the ocean and its inhab...

You probably know that cigarette smoking causes breathing problems and lung cancer. But did you know it also makes you more likely to have a heart attack? Every cigarette you smoke makes you more likely to get heart disease. Roughly 1 out of 5 deaths from heart disease are directly related to smoking. People who smoke are two to four times more likely to get heart disease. Women who take oral contraceptives and smoke increase their risk of stroke many times. Smoking also creates a higher risk for peripheral arterial disease and aortic aneurysm.

THE FAULT OF THE MAN

One of the main disclosures of modern physics has been that the energy reaching the Earth from the Sun is the result of nuclear reactions at the centre of the Sun. As the physicist Fritjof Capra wrote, nuclear processes at the centre of the Sun are of singular importance for our planet, “because they furnish the energy which sustains our terrestrial environment.” — The Tao of Physics. The fact that nuclear energy transmitted by the sun reaches the earth in the form of light and sustenance shows that nuclear energy, in the hands of nature, is a source of life for the world. But the same energy in the hand...

MODI’S SUCCESSFUL FOUR YEARS IN OFFICE

4 weeks ago
Prime Minister Narendra Modi can look back on his four years in office with satisfaction. He has not lost the momentum which victory in the 2014 Lok Sabha election had given when for the first time in 30 years a political party got a simple majority in the Lok Sabha on its own. It seems quite clear that the credit for the victory then was entirely due to the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) then prime ministerial candidate Modi. He and the party are aware that it was he who projected a new image for the party and who forged the developmental agenda.  Though the Modi government has not succeeded in all that it has...

FIVE DIMENSIONS FOR BETTER EDUCATION

4 weeks ago
The education that has prevailed in the past is insufficient, incomplete and superficial.  It only creates people who can earn their livelihood but it does not give any insight into living itself. It is not only incomplete; it is harmful too because it is based on competition.  Any type of competition is violent deep down and creates people who are unloving. Their whole effort is to be achievers of name, fame, and all kinds of ambitions.  That destroys their joys; that destroys their friendliness.  There should not be any kind of examination as part of education, but every day, every hour observation b...

THE CHANGING IDENTITY OF MUSEUM

5 weeks ago
International Museum Day is celebrated every May 18, and it began in 1977 as a move to revive interest in museums and connect them with their communities through various cultural projects. The theme of the International Museum Day 2018 is “Hyperconnected museums: new approaches, new publics”. This is a natural theme in the age of the Internet where it has become possible to take virtual tour of the museums without physically visiting the place. Museums have thus moved out of the physical locations. And it has also become possible for museums in different parts of the world to cooperate and coordinate and make their r...

THE GREAT GROWLING ENGINE OF CHANGE

Communication is the backbone of our society. Communication and the mediums of communication have evolved alongside the human civilization. There used to be a time when humans communicated via drums, smoke signals, mirrors, and musical instruments. With the exponential growth of technology starting in the 20th century, telecommunications was born. From prehistoric man with their signal fires to the smartphone-wielding high-powered executives of today, communication still remains a key for survival and success.  What is telecommunication? Modernisation through the use of telephones, radio, and computers has brought pe...
