It is revered as a sacred scripture of Hinduism and considered as one of the most important philosophical classics of the world. The Bhagavad-Gita comprises 700 verses and is a part of Mahabharata. The teacher of the Bhagavad-Gita is Lord Krishna who is revered by Hindus as a manifestation of the Lord himself and is referred to within Bhagawan- the Divine one. The content of the Gita is the conversation between Krishna and Arjuna taking place on the battlefield before the start of the Kurukshetra war. Responding to Arjuna’s confusion and moral dilemma, Krishna explains to Arjuna his duties as a warrior and price and elaborates on different Yogic and Vedantic philosophies with examples and analogies. The Holy Scripture contains 18 chapters and these chapters are divided into Yoga. Among these yogas, Karma Yoga is essentially acting or doing one’s duties in life as per his/her dharma, or duty, without concern of results – a sort of constant sacrifice of action to the Supreme. It is action done without thought of gain. In a more modern interpretation, it can be viewed as duty bound deeds done without letting the nature of the result affecting one’s actions.

  3. 3. Karma 3 Once a woman had two sons. They were called Fortune and Intelligence. They met a poor man called Kencha who used to fetch fire wood from the forest daily and sell them in the bazaar. He had to work every day, else he would lose his daily bread. Intelligence said to his brother Fortune, “I rule over the world. If I want I can help Kencha and he would never have to cut wood for a living?” Fortune replied, “Brother, without me even you cannot bring about desirable changes in this man’s life”. It was finally decided that Intelligence should try to help him first. Intelligence gave him a gold pendant which was worth thirty thousand rupees. He told Kencha, “Build a house for a ten thousand rupees. Spend another ten thousand for your marriage. With the remaining ten thousand rupees you could buy all the things you need for your house. Stop selling firewood from to day. Fortune was watching all this and smiling quietly to himself. Kencha took the pendant and left for the village. He felt thirsty. He kept the pendant on a slab of stone near a pond and drank water. As the pendant was glittering in the sun, an eagle, taking it for a shinning cobra, swooped down picked it up and flew away. Kencha felt very sad. He resumed his occupation of cutting and selling fire wood. Intelligence observed all that was happening and muttered to himself, “He is very careless. He lost what I had given him as a gift”. Therefore, Intelligence gave Kencha some more gold. He told him, “This would fetch fifty thousand rupees. If you would spend it properly, you would no longer be a poor man. But be careful this time”. Again, the poor man went out. He felt thirsty on his way to the village. He was careful this time. So he kept the gold in his shirt’s pocket. But as he bent over the pond to drink water, all the gold fell into the water. “How can I do this to myself” he said to himself. He had lost the day’s wages also. He went begging at a couple of houses and ate a handful of food. The next day he returned to the forest to cut fire wood. This time Intelligence gave him a pot full of money. The poor man ran straight to his house without stopping any where. But as he was very hungry and thirsty he fell down unconscious near his door step. An old woman, who was passing by, stole the pot.The brothers were surprised to find Kencha again cutting fire wood and following day. Fortune told Intelligence, “You gave him riches thrice. But he could not keep it. Let me help him. Just follow me”.Again they approached him. They asked the price of each bundle of fire wood. He demanded twelve rupees and Fortune paid him the money. Kencha made a calculation for those twelve rupees. Four rupees for the food grains, salt and chillies for another four rupees. Buy vegetables with the remaining four rupees”. The poor man spent only ten rupees on provisions. As he was returning home, he saw an old woman selling fish. He bought a big fish with the remaining two rupees. As he had made a very good bargain, he felt very happy. He wanted to cook the fish first. As he had no firewood in the house, he went out to get some. There was a huge tree right in front of his house. As he was cutting a few branches, he saw an eagle’s nest on the tree. Some thing glittered there in the sun. He climbed up to the nest and saw that it was the gold pendant he had lost. He was very happy. He took it and shouted, “At last, I have got you”. The old woman who had stolen his pot of money was living in a hut just on the other side of the tree. She returned the pot of money to him, saying “I have not touched even a coin in the pot”. The poor man Kencha lived happily after that. Intelligence realized that without Fortune he could not get very far.
  4. 4. Karma 4 Long ago, there was a king by name Vini. He was very famous in three worlds as a result of his just rule and the performance of appropriate religious rituals. He was very righteous and brave. He had a son by name Mithi. Mithi built the city of Mithila. The twenty-second king in this line, Hrastaroma, was a great person who knew all shastras. He had two sons by name Seeradhwaja and Sankashya.The King Hrastaroma went to the forest as custom required. Seeradhwaja ruled over the land very efficiently and justly. Seeradhwaja’s other name was Janaka. Janaka was a rajarishi. Once he decided to perform a yagna. As he was ploughing the land on which he was to perform the yagna as the custom demanded, the sharp end of the plough was struck to a box. The funow made by the plough while ploughing is called “Seetha” in Sanskrit Language. As the child was found while ploughing, she was named Seetha Devi. The divine preceptor Brihaspathi had a son by name Kushadhwaja. He was a Brahmarishi and brilliant as his father. He used to study the Vedas every day. His daughter was Vedavati. He desired that Maha Vishnu, one among the holy trinity of Hinduism, should become his son – in – law. In order to fulfill her father’s desire, she matted her hair like a sage, put on deerskin and began to perform tapas to please MahaVishnu. Her face was radiant with divine brightness. Once Ravana was on a Military campaign and while he was moving in his chariot, he happened to come to the place where she was in penance and attracted by her exquisite beauty and his heart was filled with greed for lust. He told her about his desire but Vedavathi refused to yield. “Who is this Mahavishnu? He can never be equal to me in courage, strength, power of austerity and wealth,” he spoke proudly. “Except you, none else speaks so low of MahaVishnu, a paragon among gods. Every one makes obeisance to him”, said Vedavati. The wicked Ravana was not ready to listen to her. He took her by her hair. She was very angry, used her hand as a sword, cut off her hair and freed herself away from Ravana. She was burning with anger and looked at him as she was going to reduce him to ashes. She made a fire and said; “Lo you wicked, as you have touched my body, I do not wish to live any more. I am going to jump into this burning fire. Iam going to be born as a woman, just to destroy you. If I have done anything good in this life, let me not be born of the woman of any being. I will be the daughter of a righteous man and live a pure and perfect life”. So saying, she jumped into the fire. The devas rained flowers on her from heaven. This Vedavathi was found in a box while King Janka and queen Sunayana were ploughing the land for the yagna. She grew up in the company of her sister Urmila and Kushaladhwaja’s daughter Mandari and Shruthakirti. Seetha Devi was born of the earth. She was very beautiful and excellently behaved. As a marriageable younglady, she was exquisitely attractive and, in fact, more attractive than an apsaras (apsaras - a heavenly lymph). A number of princes from different
  5. 5. Karma 5 parts of the earth came as her suitors. Janaka desired that the young man who wanted to marry Seetha Devi must be courageous and unmatched in the skills of war. He should be able to lift and string the divine bow, which his ancestors received from Lord Shiva. Long ago, king Daksha performed a yagna. Lord Shiva was angry and he stringed that bow and got ready to kill the devas. They fell at his feet and pleased him with prayers. Lord Shiva was pleased with their prayers and gave the bow to them as a gift. The devas deposited that best bows with Devanatha, one of the ancestors of king Janaka. King Janaka announced that the young man, who lifts the divine bow, strung it and shot an arrow from it would marry his blessed daughter Seetha Devi. Ayodhya was the capital of Kosala. Ikshwaku was the first king of that kingdom. Great kings such as Raghu,Aja and DasharathaweretheotherswhoruledoverKosala.Dasharatha did not have children for a long time. After obtaining blessings from the royal priest Vasishta, he performed a sacrifice called “Puthrakameshti”, under the leader ship of Maharshi Rishyashringa. As soon as the Poornahuti was over, an extremely radiant divine figure appeared out of the blazing flames of the yagnakunda, holding a vessel full of payasam (a kind of sweet), gave it to king Dasharatha and asked him to give it to his queens. He told him that he would get sons. Dasharatha distributed the payasam among his queens. Twelve months later, the queens gave birth to the sons. Kausalya’s son was named Sri Rama, Sumithra’s sons were namedLakshmanandShathrughna and Kaikeyi’s son came to be called Bharatha. The children grew up and they mastered all the shastras and Vedas. Once Brahmarishi Viswamithra visited Dasharatha’s palace. He asked Dasharatha to send Sri Rama and Lakshmana with him for protecting the yagna he desired to perform. Though unwilling, the King agreed to send the princes with Viswamithra on the advice of the royal preceptor Vasishta. Rama and Lakshmana followed Viswamitra torwards his hermitage, on the way, Sri Rama killed the wicked demoness Tataka and her son Subahu. Her other son Maricha was thrown away far off into the midst of the ocean. He helped Viswamithra to complete the yagna. Then Sri Rama and Lakshmana along with the great sage Viswamithra left for Mithila to attend a great yagna, king Janaka was performing. On the way, Sri Rama broke the spell of a curse pronounced on Ahalya by her husband, sage Gowthama. Then they reached Mithila. They were accorded a fitting welcome at Mithila by king Janka. Viswamithra introduced Sri Rama and Lakshmana to the king. The king told them about the divine bow Shivadhanus and he told about Seetha Devi. He ordered the great bow, which was placed on a cart on eight wheels, drawn by 5000 strong men, to be brought to the court. Sri Rama took permission from Viswamithra, lifted the bow in his left hand and tried to bend it to string it. To every one’s surprise, the bow broke into two. The terrific sound made every one in the court, except Janaka, Viswamithra, Rama and Lakshmana, swoon. Janaka was very happy. He sent his ministers to Dasharatha with the happy tiding that Seetha Devi has been won by Rama, the son of Dasharatha and will bring fame to his clan’. Preparation for the marriage were made in Mithila. When Dasathratha received the news of Rama breaking the divine bow, he was delighted. He came to Mithila with a huge royal court age. He was received with grand pomp and grandeur. The city of Mithila was decorated in a wonderful manner befitting the occasion. Every where there was an air of great festivity. The front of every house was decorated with Rangavalli designs. Every house echoed auspicious music. The citizens were elated when they heard that their beloved princess was going to marry Sri Ramachandra.
  6. 6. Karma 6 At the sacred moment of Uttaraphalguni, to the sacred music chanting of Vedic hymns, Janaka addressed to Sri. Ramachandra as, “Iyam Seetha mama sutaa sahadharma charithava. Pratheechathainaam badhranthe paaninm gruhneeshva paaninaam. Pathivrathaa mahabaaga chaayena anugatha saha”. Meaning: “My daughter Seetha Devi is going to become your lawful wife. Hold her hands in your hand. Please accept her as your wife and she will follow you as a shadow follows a man”. So saying he placed Seetha Devi’s handsome hand in Sri Ramachandra’s hand and poured holy water on her’s. All the sages gathered at the marriage hall, all the Brahmins, ministers, royal guests and the people were happy to see Seetha Devi who was exquisitely dressed in a Silk saree and made up with expensive and shining ornaments appeared very, charming, wed Sri Ramachandra who was grand, handsomely attractive and good Nature. At that auspicious occasion, Urmila was married to Lakshmana; Mandari was married to Barartha and Shruthakirti to Shathrughna. The next day king Janaka gave a large number of precious gifts to his sons- in – law before he took leave of them. On the way back to Ayodhya, Parashurma who was on a destory – Kshatriya compaign, met Sri Ramachandra. In the duel that followed, Parashurma was beaten and that followed the end of his pride. When the royal outrage reached Ayodhya, they were given a grand welcome. The queen welcomed Seetha Devi, Urmilla, Mandari, and Shuruthakirti according to the royal traditions and took them to the gynecenum. They warmed the holy lamp and then the daughter’s –in-law worshipped the family deity. They took bleesings from the elders. Seetha Devi and Ramachandra was an ideal couple in the best tradition at this holy land of Bharatha. It appeared as though they had one soul though same alike. They loved each other’s heart. They served the elders and loved the young ones with great Love and affection. They won every one’s heart in the process. In the mean time, emperor Dasharatha decided to crown Sri Ramachandra and retreat at the forest. Sri Ramachandra and Seetha Devi began to observe certain vrathas as part of the crowning ceremony. Manthara, one of Kaikeyi’s maid servants, came to know about it. She went to Kaikeyi and with her sweet and attractive words made Kaikeyi to demand two boons from the king Dasharatha, namely – her son Bharatha should be crowned king and Rama should be sent to the forest for fourteen years. When Sri Ramachandra heard it, he went to his mother, took her blessings and told her about Kaikeyi’s demands. Then he went to Seetha. She did not know about the sad development. Therefore she had worshipped the devas. When she looked at Sri Rama, She was shocked. He was dull and sad. She came near him and said: “My lord, why do you look sad? What is the cause for it? Why haven’t you tied the sacred wristband?” Sri Rama told her about his going to the forest and the crowning of Bharatha. He said; “My dear Seetha, be faithful to the new king Bharatha; serve my parents with devotion. Take care. Fourteen years will fly like fourteen days”. Seetha was sad when she heard it. She pretended anger and said; “My Lord Ramabhadra, your words do not fit for a great prince like you. Neither they are fit to be heard by me. We have our duties to perform. We get the furits of our labor. In the case of a wife, she shares with her husband his joys and sorrows. He is everything to her. I will come to the forest with you to make your way easier” She continued; “My parents have taught me how to be a good wife. As I am happy in your company in the palace, I will be happy with you in the forest. I will eat roots and fruits, which you eat. I will drive happiness by looking at trees, rivers, animals, birds, hills and mountains. I do not wish to have Kamadhenu, Kalpavriksha and even heaven when you are not with me”. “You are a princess. A forest is a fearful place. There are demons and wild animals. You cannot with stand the rustic life of the forest – a life of renunciation, sleeping on a bed made of grass, sitting on deerskin, dressing oneself in a dress made of fibres from barks of trees. Please think again, “Said Sri Rama.“My Lord, all that you have said so far are to my advantage. Once, when I was in my father’s house, learned Brahmins told me that I was destined to live in a forest for sometime. Help me to make it true. To a faithful wife, her husband is god, sill if you go to the forest without talking me, I will die here”. From this story of Sri. Rama and Seetha Devi, we can easily understand, how the understanding between a couple should be.
  7. 7. Karma 7
  8. 8. Karma 8 PHOOR – PA and LAMOO There lived in a village a man and his wife with their daughter named Lamoo and son Phoor- Pa. One day, the wife fell ill and she died after some days. As she was dying, she said to her husband, “You should bring up the two children and try to keep them happy”. Ever since his wife died, he began to worry about feeding the two children. One day, while he was seated on a stone in front of his house, a man from the same village came in and said, “What are you doing! Come, let us go and shoot deer. They say that a lot of footmarks of deer can be seen near the hill over there”. The man reluctantly agreed to go. His companion made him sit in an open space where the deer would come in his direction. He kept his bow and arrows ready, but was greatly surprised when he saw the deer. An animal with two very tall horns, in a woman’s dress, and with the face covered with dark, long hair coming towards him. It was beyond doubt, that it was a she- demon. He began to tremble with fear. The bow and arrow dropped from his hands. Seeing the bow and the arrows lying on the ground, the she – demon looked up. As soon as she saw the man, she changed in to a beautiful girl, walked up to the tree and asked the man to come down. When he came down, she asked, “Tell me, are you going to marry me or not? If you don’t marry me, I will kill you”. The man replied, “I am ready to marry you. But I am not young like you. Besides, you won’t be happy with me. My wife is a terribly hot – tempered person and she may harm you”. The she – demon replied, “Non sense your wife is already dead. Her body was cremated only the other day. I saw it with my own eyes”. He said” I shall find a handsome young man for you. You will see me right here four days from to day”. However, she did not listen him. Feeling helpless, he walked towards his home along with the she – demon. Near the village, he said to her, “you just wait here. I will go home and make arrangements to perform our marriage. I know, you will be happy only then”. She was very pleased. The man went home, cooked the meals, fed the two children, tucked them inside huge pot along with enough food for the next few days and said, “You must never come out side. If you do, you will be in great trouble. Your step mother will eat you up”. Then he left the two children and went back to fetch the she – demon. He married her without any pomp and show and no one in the village knew anything about the wedding. One day she boiled some water for his bath and said, “You better have a wash on this platform outside. I shall pour the water on your body”. The man did not utter a word. He changed clothes and sat down for a wash. Phoor -Pa and Lamoo, who were hiding in a pot on the upper floor, felt like having a look at their stepmother. So they lifted the lid of the pot to have a look around. As soon as they raised the lid, their stepmother saw reflections in the water. It made her mouth water. She immediately complained that her stomach was paining and went to bed. The man knew that she was up to some tricks. Doctors saw her but could not cure her of the stomach pain. The man sentfor a priest. ThePriest came and checked the she-deman. The priest said, “You have got two children at home You should offer the lungs of one of them to your wife to eat. You will see her stomach pain vanish in a day or two”. He lost all hopes and left for home. “You should act quickly, otherwise I shall die” his wife complained. He took the two children to the riverside. He made them sit down on a stone and took out a sharp knife. He fainted when he thought of killing them. Phoor – Pa and Lamoo both began to cry. This touched the heart of the river goddess. She appeared before them in their mother’s form and gave them two huge fishes. Then she said, “Tell your father that he should take out the lungs of these two fishes and feed them to your step mother. You two better run away to a far off place”. After saying this she disappeared. A little while later when the man recovered from his faint, the two children told him how their, mother had appeared with the two fishes and what she told them. The man was both happy and sad. Happy because the children would not have to die. Sad, because they would have to leave him and go away. He affectionately kissed them and said, “God will protect you. I shall try to kill your stepmother. You should not be afraid. You should keep faith in God. He will give you food and clothes”. A drop of tear, full of fatherly love, rolled down the man’s cheeks with each word of advice that he gave. Phoor – Pa wiped those tears with his clothes. At last, he cried out, “Father” and fainted Lamoo sprinkled water on his head he recovered. Phoor – Pa and Lamoo took leave of their father. The man stood still. He kept looking as they disappeared from his sight. Then he heaved a long sigh of pain and headed home. Seeing that her husband was still not back, the she demon became wild with anger and kept pacing up and down in the house. When she saw her husband coming, she went to lie down
  9. 9. Karma 9 on the bed. Her husband gave the lungs of the two fishes which he had brought wrapped up in leaves. She ate the lungs greedily and sat up after a moment saying, “What the priest said was correct. I am now all right”. Aftertheyhadsaidgood-byetotheirfather,Phoor-PaandLamoo went to a very old village. There were houses and gardens in that village, but not a single human being anywhere. A very old woman was living near the village she had eaten the people of the village. Finding no one in the village, the brother and sister went to the old woman. Phoor – Pa was very thirsty. He asked Lamoo to ask the old woman for water. The old woman said that there was not any water in the house, and giving Lamoo a sieve, she sent her to fetch water in it. In the meantime, the old woman put Phoor- Pa in a wooden trunk and sold it to a trader. As you must know, a sieve has holes in it and if you put water in a sieve, that water will immediately run out through its holes. So, getting tired of collecting water in the sieve again and again, Lamoo wet her clothes, and went back to quench her brother’s thirst. When she did not find Phoor- Pa, she felt very sad. The old woman said, “He left soon after you left. Perhaps he lost his way and went in another direction. Go, find him and bring him back at once”. The girl, who had lived with a she- demon, immediately guessed that this old woman too was a she – demon. She thought, “I now have no friends in the world”. She gave up all hopes of seeing her brother again and walked off. As she walked she picked up every bit of bone which she found lying on her way, thinking that it could be her brother’s. She hide them in her clothes. Hungry and thirsty she kept going on through sun and rain, day and night, in search of happiness. Mean while, after he had bought the trunk from the she – demon, the trader carried it on the back of a horse. As they were crossing a bridge, the trunk dropped into the water. Since it was tightly closed it did not sink. It went on floating and entered another country. There was no king in that country. The people were looking for a man to make him their king. When they saw the box drifting by, while they were fishing, they pulled it up to the bank. On opening it they saw a healthy, strong and handsome boy in it. Deciding that he was fit to be made a king they led Phoor – Pa into the palace. They put him on the throne and made him their king. One day, after several years had passed, Lamoo happened to come to that palace. As soon as he saw Lamoo, Phoor – Pa fainted. The guards scolded Lamoo and drove her out. Lamoo cried out “Oh God” and left the palace. When he came back to his senses Phoor – Pa asked about Lamoo. The guards told him what had happened. The king ordered them to bring her back at once. Again Phoor-Pa fainted. When he came to his senses for the second time, he gave strict orders to bring back that girl again. One of the guards found her sitting on the riverbank. When he said that the king had sent for her, she cried out loudly with folded arms. “Oh God how much longer are you going to punish me? Please spare me; I have no one except you in this world. Although my father is alive, yet I am without a father, I had only one brother. I sacrificed Him also to a she – demon. Save me Lord. I beg for my life as I wish to live”. She fell on her knees as soon as she had finished her prayer. The guard picked her up and marched her to the king. The king walked down from throne and threw his arms around her crying, “My sister”. She could not recognize Phoor – Pa. She had to think over a good deal. She was puzzled. At last, she asked, “Your Majesty, why are you behaving like this”? The king replied, “You have not recognized me. I am your brother Phoor – Pa”. Then he told her all that had happened. Lamoo also told him briefly about her own life. Both the brother and sister were happy. The king had a powerful magic stick. With the help of that magic stick, he traced out his father and the she – demon. This time the she – demon put a different condition that she would marry the king who came to rescue his father. The king made up a “Plan” and asked the she demon that he will build a marriage hall where air cannot enter it by any means. It must not have even one hole wide enough for a needle to pass through. The she – demon was happy. After a couple of days the marriage hall was built. When the she – demon went inside and watched that there was no outlet for her escape. By that time Phoor – Pa set fire to the four corners of the house. As the marriage – hall or house got fire the she – demon was burnt in to ashes. After this the king with all powerful magic stick turned his father into a middle aged man. They, Phoor- Pa, Lamoo and their father lived happily ever after.
  10. 10. Karma 10 During the past issues, I had the blessed opportunity of sharing my thoughts on the spirituality taught by various scholars. In this issue, I wish to discuss about “Karma”. Lot of people started asking Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar as what is the reason for selecting the name “Karma” for the magazine. With his auspicious permission and blessings, I wish to share some of my thoughts on the word Karma and usage of the word in various religions. KarmaisaSanskritword,whichhasthemeanings “act,action, performance”, in Indian religions is the concept of “action” or “deed”, understood as that which causes the entire cycle of cause and effect originating in ancient India and treated in the philosophies of all the religions. ‘Karma’ is an Eastern religious concept in contradistinction to ‘faith’ espoused by Abrahamic religions, which view all human dramas as the will of God as opposed to present and past life actions. In theistic schools of Hinduism, humans have free will to choose good or evil and suffer the consequences, which require the will of God to implement karma’s consequences. In Eastern beliefs, the karmic effects of all deeds are viewed as actively shaping past, present, and future experiences. The results or ‘fruits’ of actions are called karma-phala. Some traditions (i.e., the Vedanta), believe that a Supreme Being plays some kind of role, for example, as the dispenser of the ‘fruits’ of karma or as exercising the option to change one’s karma in rare instances. Another view holds that a Sadguru, acting on a god’s behalf, can mitigate or work out some of the karma of the disciple. One of the first and most dramatic illustrations of karma is found in the Bhagavad-Gita. In this great literature, Arjuna the protagonist is preparing for battle when he realizes that the enemy consists of members of his own family and decides not to fight. His charioteer, Lord Krishna (an avatar of Lord Mahavishnu), explains to Arjuna the concept of dharma (duty) among other things and makes him see that it is his duty to fight. The whole of the Bhagavad-Gita is a dialogue between these two on aspects of life including morality and a host of other philosophical themes. Several other movements within the religion, most notably Vedanta, and Thantra, later enhanced the original Hindu concept of karma. Karma means “deed” or “act” and more broadly names the universal principle of cause and effect, action and reaction that governs all life. According to Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar, we produce Karma in four ways: 1. through thoughts, 2. Through words, 3. Through actions that we perform ourselves,
  11. 11. Karma11 4. Through actions others do under our instructions. Everything that we have ever thought, spoken, done or caused is Karma; as is also that which we think, speak or do this very moment. After death we lose Kriya Shakti (ability to act) and do karma. Actions performed consciously are weighted more heavily than those done unconsciously are. However, just as poison affects us if taken unknowingly, suffering caused unintentionally will also give appropriate karmic effect. We are in position to do something about our destiny by doing the right thing at the right time. Through positive actions, pure thoughts, prayer, mantra and meditation, we can resolve the influence of the karma in present life and turn the destiny for the better. That’s why Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar often says “the karma/destiny cannot be changed. However, we can alter the karma/destiny according to our living conditions through the prayers and rituals to the Atharva Veda Yaksha/ Yakshini Devathas. A spiritual master knowing the sequence in which our Karma will bear fruit, can help us. As humans, we have the opportunity to speed up our spiritual progress with practice of good Karma. We produce negative karma because we lack knowledge and clarity. Hindu scriptures divide karma into three kinds. They are Sanchita, Prarabdha, and Kriyamana. Sanchita is the accumulated karma. It would be impossible to experience and endure all Karmas in one life. From this stock of sanchita karma, a handful is taken out to serve one lifetime and this handful of actions, which has begun to bear fruit and which will be exhausted only on their fruit being experienced. Hence, it is the sum of one’s past karmas, all actions (good and bad) that follow through from one’s past life to the next. Prarabdha, the Fruit-bearing karma is the portion of accumulated karma that has “ripened” and appears as a particular problem in the present life. Kriyamana is everything that we produce in current life. All kriyamana karmas flow in to sanchita karma and consequently shape our future. In this way, so long as the stock of sanchita karma lasts, a part of it continues to be taken out as prarabdha karma for being experienced in one lifetime, leading to the cycle of birth and death. A Jiva cannot attain moksha until the accumulated sanchita karmas are completely exhausted. Karma is also considered a spiritually originated law. Many Hindus see God’s direct involvement in this process, while others consider the natural laws of causation sufficient to explain the effects of karma. Followers of Vedanta consider Ishvara, a personal supreme God, as playing a role in the delivery of karma. Theistic schools of Hinduism such as Vedanta thus disagree with the Buddhist and Jain views and other Hindu views that karma is merely a law of cause and effect but rather is also dependent on the will of a personal supreme God. Examples of a personal supreme God include Shiva in Shaivism or Vishnu in Vaishnavism. A good summary of this theistic view of karma is expressed by the following: “God does not make one suffer for no reason nor does He make one happy for no reason. God is very fair and gives you exactly what you deserve.” Only based on the theory a great Indian scholar has quoted as “You get you deserve but not you desire”. Karma is not punishment or retribution but simply an extended expression or consequence of natural acts. The effects experienced are also able to be mitigated by actions and are not necessarily fated. That is to say, a particular action now is not binding to some particular, pre-determined future experience or reaction; it is not a simple, one-to-one correspondence of reward or punishment. Karma is not fate, for humans act with free will creating their own destiny. According to the Vedas, if we sow goodness, we will reap goodness; if we sow evil, we will reap evil. Karma refers to the totality of our actions and their concomitant reactions in this and previous lives, all of which determines our future. The conquest of karma lies in intelligent action and dispassionate response. According to another theory of Hinduism, all living beings are described as being under the influence of Maya’s three qualities namely Rajas (mode of passion), Tamas (mode of ignorance), and Satva (mode of goodness). Always present together in varying mix and degrees, these three qualities of Maya bind the soul to the body and to the earth plane. Above these three qualities is the eternal time. Due to the influence
  12. 12. Karma 12 of three modes of Maya’s nature, jivas (individual beings) perform activities under the control and purview of the eternal time. These activities are called Karma. The underlying principle is that karma is the law that brings back the results of actions to the person performing them. This life is likened to a field in which our Karma is the seed. We harvest exactly what we sow. No less, no more. This infallible law of Karma holds everyone responsible for what the person is or going to be. Based on the total sum of past Karma, some feel close to the Pure Being in this life, and others feel separated. Karma by definition is universal law of cause and effect, operating on all planes, mental, moral, and physical, with inexorable precision. One might as well try to escape it as to escape space itself. The defined nature of it leaves only two alternatives: denial of its existence; or acceptance of it as both universal and just. To take any intermediate position is to replace the classic definition in both Theosophy and all the traditional religions and philosophies using the term, with some definition peculiarly that of the dissident individual. It is not intellectually honest to use a word whose meaning has been established for thousands of years, in some other sense. We would be interested to know, for instance, what sort of picture of law or of the universe. The literal meaning of the words is “Justice, Just and Unjust.” Karma can never be understood as a law governing each individual as a case all by himself. Humankind is one and karma is one. All actions are interactions, and our own part can never make sense if dissected out from the entire network. The notion, in its crudely simplified form, that what I do to you, you or someone else does to me in another life, is only a primitive approach to the real problem. In part, I made you, and you made me; and what we do to one another is a function of what we have made of one another. The spiritual child cannot be blamed for not yet having become a man; he can be blamed, and mightily will be blamed by karma itself, for any deliberate renunciation of man’s estate in favor of retaining infancy. If from one point of view, karma is never unjust, being immutable Law; from another point of view, it is never quite just. “Whatever the sin and dire results of the original Karmic transgression of the now incarnated Egos no man (or the outer material and periodical form of the Spiritual Entity) can be held with any degree of justice responsible for the consequences of his birth. He does not ask to be born, nor can he choose the parents that will give him life. In every respect, he is a victim to his environment, the child of circumstances over which he has no control; and if each of his transgressions were impartially investigated, there would be found nine out of every ten cases when he was the one sinned against, rather than the sinner. Life is at best a heartless play, a stormy sea to cross, and a heavy burden often too difficult to bear. The greatest philosophers have tried and have all failed except those who had the key to it. It is the worst foolishness on the part of a human being to blame the Karma for the bad or worst results for the wrongful decisions and actions by him. Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar is a very practical man. He is not a usual Swamiji. All the otherSwamijiswillsayas“itisyourkarma.Youare enjoying the fruit of it. As a Swamiji, I can change your karma’. But, Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar says as “karma or destiny cannot be changed. However, we can alter the Karma according to our living conditions by the rituals”. We all can alter the karma and make our life very easy going and spiritual by following the path of spiritual leaders and act according the words of those great spiritual souls. I thank the Almighty and Swamiji for giving me a chance to discuss my thoughts on Spirituality. I pray the Almighty to make us meet in the next issue also.

  16. 16. Karma 16 Vedic Astrology As an Atharva Vedic scholar and Swamiji, I have written number of articles on VedicAstrology and solving the problems spiritually with the help of Atharva Vedic Astrology. Anybody can reach me @ USA toll free – 1-888-808-1418 or 1-888-808- 1428 and anybody can email me to avtemple@aol.com . In this issue, I am going to write about Vedic Astrology as an analysis and forecasting system, based on astronomical data and using the calculations of Atharva Veda. The oldest and most important scriptures in the world are called the Vedas, a Sanskrit word meaning “knowledge. The Vedas are beyond the realm of man and time. According to the tenets of Vedic philosophy, the Vedas were not authored but documented by seers or ancient wise men, called “rishis”. Vedic Astrology comes from this ancient work. Jyotisha or Jyotish is the actual Sanskrit name for Vedic Astrology and means the “eye or light of nature”. It describes the ability of an astrologer to view the mechanics of people’s behavior as well as the projected cycles and outcomes of time and events. According to the saints and rishis, who documented the Vedas, Astrology is only a tool to analyze the problem, but it is not a spiritual remedy for the problems. There are many calculations in deciding the power of the planets in a horoscope. Among all those calculations Vedic Astrological calculations are the most accurate. Brahma, the creator, instituted the fundamentals of Vedic Astrology. This knowledge was then passed down to various Rishis and to man. Maharishi Parashara wrote Vedic Astrology, in its current form, several thousand years ago and passed it to Maharishi Agasthya. Maharishi Agasthya was a great scholar and an expert of Vedic Astrology. He added his ideas to his Guru’s writings and he gave a new dimension to Vedic Astrology. The purpose of Vedic Astrology is to avoid problems before they arise. The aphorism, “Pull weeds early” describes a major purpose of astrology. Another quote from India states, “If you want to get rid of a snake, get rid of it when it is really small”.A good astrologer uses the tools of VedicAstrology to forecast the times to promote events in one’s life or to pull back, recognizing the indications point to some obvious serious risk. In the traditional Hindu culture, there is a high reverence for Gurus, or enlightened Masters. The trust is so high that the word of the Guru and ancient scriptural tradition is accepted. It is also important to know that Vedic astrologers are not fatalistic, but point to useful and actionable indications or probabilities that certain behaviors might emerge or that specific events could take place over time. In spite of the debate about whether we have free will or not, it is important to know that the effects seen in an astrological chart are not required to happen as they stand. A motivated, sincere person, under the competent guidance of an experienced Vedic astrologer or a Swamiji can make effective changes in their lives. According to the Vedic theories, the Karma or destiny cannot be changed but can be altered according to the living conditions of an individual. The karma of one’s previous births reflects in the horoscope. Vedic astrology is linked to other Vedic systems, such as Ayurveda for health, Vastu for dwellings, Thantric Rituals for the spiritual salvation of the problems and other philosophies. The Vedic Astrology system is kind in that not only is a person told what might happen, but also they are presented a list of potential remedies or corrective actions to offset the quantity and quality of karmas that are returning to them, as seen in the birth chart. After all, it is held that the natal chart is a list of the karmas or previous actions that we have brought into this life. The chart, called a Janma Kundali represents our starting point in this life and where our pluses and minuses lie throughout our lives. These fortifying practices, which should only be accepted from very qualified Vedic astrologers, include such measures as mantras and balancing rituals called yagnas, used to propitiate or soothe the impact associated with unfavorable planetary positions. The Vedic astrology is known for the quantity and quality of its analytical and forecasting tools. Most beginners are amazed to find not only the basic natal chart called the “rasi”, but also a chart system employing 27 signs of the Moon, called the “nakshatras”. There is an additional set of birth charts, which give the practitioner of Vedic Astrology 15 extra charts to examine. The most famous of these is the “Navamsa”, which is analyzed carefully to uncover more subtle aspects of a person’s nature. The most widely recognized Vedic forecasting tool is called the “Vimshottari Dasa” system, which can track the karmic influences promised by planet in a chart out to a span of 120 years, with each planet ruling a specific period of a person’s life. There are many other techniques also. There will be twelve boxes in an astrological chart. Each box is called as house. These houses are called under various names. The first Swmiji Sri Selvam Siddhar
  17. 17. Karma 17
  18. 18. Karma 18 is called as Kendra. The houses 1, 4,7,10 are Kendras and known as Lakshmi Houses. These are the most important houses. They are strong and active to accomplish their potential, sharp energetic, power for achievement and strong will. Tenth is the strongest of these four. Tenth house will even overpower the ascendant. Malefic and Benefics are exalted (1) Body (4) Home (7) Marriage, relief and remedy from the problems, (10) Career and in some aspects same modality as the ascendant. The next is “Trine”. In the Indian language, these houses are called as “Trikona”. Trine 1, 5, 9. These houses are widely known as “Houses of dharma” (1) personal (5) creative (9) ore collective. They give as well as take. Not as strong as angles but they boost the chart and strengthen signs 5 and 9. These are called houses of Vishnu. Jupiter and the moon are good in trines. One trine aspects all others. They are in the same element as the ascendant. These houses are more important to decide about one’s spirituality. The next is “Succedent”. Succedent - 2, 5,8,11. These houses are widely known as “Accumulation of resources and maintaining what we have”. All these houses are called as “Income houses’. Among the houses the 2nd is fro personal works and earnings, the 5th is for speculation, 8th is for inheritance and the 11th is for profit through income. In another terms the 2nd house represents Speech and oratorical skills, 5th is for intelligence, 8th is for insight, worldly communication and the 11th is for mind and self-expressions. The next is Cadent. Cadent. 3, 6,9,12 give sensitivity, adaptability, high intelligence but unstable and uncertain mental or nervous problems. All these houses are good for spiritual development. The next set in this cadre is 3rd, 6th, 9th, 12th. 6th and 12th houses are for difficulty in health and happiness. 9th and 12th are for more attachment to spirituality. Some scholars have mentioned as 3rd and 6th house give more conflict and striving. The next is Upachaya. Upachaya. The houses 3, 6 10, 11 are increasing houses. Planets in them give more over time. Mars and Saturn do well here and give more power to overcome obstacles. Malefic do well in the 11th. The next is Apachaya. Apachaya. The houses 1, 2,4,7,8 are the houses of decrease. They lose their strength through time. Malefic do not do well in them, particularly in the 8th house. The next is Dusthana. Dusthana. These are the most difficult houses. In the houses, 6, 8, 12 the benefic planets are weakened especially under malefic influence. In these houses especially the Moon in the 6th house, even though the planet is malefic, good for power but can cause disease. Benefic planets in these houses are good for intelligence, but they will cause diseases. Raaghu in any of these houses is good for spirituality. 8th house Mars can cause death or harm. Saturn in the 8th house gives long life spans and good prosperity. 12th house benefic planets are good for rebirth. Venus in the 12th house is for prosperity. Kethu in the 12th house is for spiritual capacity. Raaghu in the 12th house will cause disorders in nervous system. Planets near the mid heaven in houses 9,10 and 11 represent how we affect the world in terms of our values through the actions and goals. Opposite planets in houses 3, 4 and 5 are for the vital energy, emotional state, and intelligence. Planets high in the chart tend to dominate those low in the chart. The entire previously mentioned are only general hints. The powers will vary according to the individual’s chart and the dasa bhukthi of the planets. More than these things the Punya (the result of the good things), Papa 9curse or sins) and the Karma (destiny) will decide the power of the planets. Therefore, it is very important to analyze the planets’ power of the individual’s horoscope. In the next issue, I will meet you all with some more ideas of Vedic Astrology. I pray Lord Shiva and Vanadurga to shower their entire blessings on all of us to have a comfortable living. Om Shanthi, Om Shanthi, Om Shanti.
  19. 19. Karma 19 Iwish to quote about a few of ancient Siddhars. There were eighteen Siddhars. They all have written many books about spirituality and about the benefits of leading a spiritual life. Even though they are said to be Hindus, they adopted no religions. The verses recited by them are of highly spiritual. They are the most heart rending ones to the readers. They attained all their powers through continuous meditation and vast readings of their ancestors. They taught everybody to attain the best in their life. In English, they are called as “Mystics”. They are beyond all the religions. They taught many yoga practices also. They attained all kinds of powers and they had their longevity of their life for more than thousands of years. They had a pure heart and mind. By that pure heart and mind, they are considered as purest souls. They had a very good control over their living style. They adopted purity in all aspects of life. They never entered deep into gossips, egos and politics. In fact and as a Siddha purusha, our Swamiji Sri Siddhar is preparing to build a temple, where there are no gossips, egos and politics. That is why many people follow them. Since they had the purest thoughts in their mind, they lived for a longer period. Today, as according to our Swamiji, some of us are unhappy because others are happy. We have to avoid that unhappiness. By avoiding that unhappiness, we all can lead a happy life. I wish to quote the short life history of a great mystic Sivavakkiyar. He is mostly intended into a spiritual path of life. However, he was a strong devotee of Lord Shiva. He loved Lord Shiva more than his life. According to Hindu beliefs, the words that come from his mouth are considered as if it comes from the mouth of Lord Shiva. That is why he is named as Sivavaakkiyar. Even though he is a strong follower of Lord Shiva, He stood in opposition of image worship. He tells a lot about spirituality and calm life of a human being. His verses are divided into various portions. Among those, The Gnana (knowledge/wisdom) and Yoga plays a vital role in explaining the spirituality. In the verses describing “Gnana” he says, “There is nothing to say as me or you. What is there between you and me? Who is the king and who is the teacher? What is construction and what is destruction? Everything is done only by the super human power. This is the only thing which unites all of us.” In the first verse of explaining the Yoga, he says, “At the end of our life the knowledge we gained will never help us when we have hurdles in our life. Only the super human power will come and help us. One should not have unnecessary sexual hunger. One needs sex as a food. It is to be taken to the limit. If it exceeds the limit, it will result in dangerous position of the Aathma inside us. It will also spoil the spiritual life. He further says that there is no use in simply worshipping the images without adopting the humanitarian needs and requirements. In another verse, he says that there is no place called as Temple. There is no place called as Holy River. All theses are found inside the human being, who adopts a spiritual life. There is no caste, creed or religion. There is only one religion, which is called as humanity. We should adopt only that religion. All the things are common to all the human being. The blood is red color in all the bodies. Only the color of the skin varies. Other than that, all are one. Therefore, there is no variation between the human being. Then one question arises here. Why we separate ourselves into various religions, caste and creed? It is only because of the misunderstanding of the teachings of our ancestors. They taught us only to adopt good humanitarian understandings between us. However, due to the work of some evil natured persons we have lost all the humanitarian understandings between us. That is why we face many problems in our life. We can lead a life of higher quality only if we feel happy when others are happy and if we were sad when others are sad. According to our Siddhar Swamiji, if we lead a humanitarian life, even though we do not lead a luxurious life we will lead a comfortable life. Wonderful Siddhars

  21. 21. Karma 21 I am Your Servant, Huzoor. Once Akbar and Birbal passed through some farms while riding on their horses. They happened to pass through a cabbage patch. Looking at the patch, Akbar said to Birbal, “What a delightful vegetable the cabbage is. I like it very much.” Birbal said, “Huzoor, cabbage is the king of the vegetables.” Akbar did not reply to this, and they went on. Another day, they were riding past the same cabbage patches again. This time Akbar made a face, and said, “This cabbage is such a tasteless vegetable. How people tolerate it.” Birbal replied, “Yes Huzoor, really it is difficult to even look at such a tasteless vegetable.” Akbar again listened to this and they went on. After a while, the king remembered something. He said to Birbal, “Birbal, I don’t understand you. Last time when we passed through this patch, you told that the cabbage was the king of vegetable, and today you said, “It is even difficult to look at such a tasteless vegetable. What do you mean by that?” Birbal said bowing, “Huzoor, I am your servant, not of cabbage.” How Many Crows in the Kingdom? One day Akbar was strolling in his palace gardens with his dear minister Birbal. Many crows were flying around. The King enjoyed their flying. Just then, he thought that how many crows could be in his kingdom and immediately posed this question to Birbal. Birbal thought a moment, then said, “They are ninety-five thousand, four hundred and sixty three (95, 463) crows in your kingdom, Huzoor.” “How do you know that for sure?” the King asked. “You can get them counted, Huzoor.” Birbal said. The king again said, “If there will be less than that, then?” Birbalrepliedimmediately,“Thatmeansthattherestofthem have gone on vacation to some neighboring kingdoms.” “Or if there were more than that, then?” “Then it means that other crows are visiting your kingdom, Huzoor.” Akbar was very pleased with this answer of his question. Birbal Solves the Problem Several courtiers were vying to be the Royal Advisor of Emperor Akbar. Therefore, one day, when they came to the court, they said to the Emperor, “We want to be your Royal Advisor.” Akbar said, “No problem, but you will have to pass the test before you could be my Royal Advisor. And whoever would pass the test will be appointed myAdvisor.” They agreed. The King unfastened his waistcloth and lay down on the floor, and asked the candidates to cover him with that cloth from head to toe. Now everybody tried to cover him, but in vain. If one wanted to cover the head, then feet remained uncovered, or if the feet were covered, then his head remained open. Just then Birbal entered the court, the king asked Birbal also, if he could cover him with that cloth from head to toe. Birbal paused a moment, then asked the Emperor politely, “Huzoor, Could you pull up your knees a little bit?” The King did so, and Birbal could cover him from head to toe with that cloth.
  22. 22. Karma 22 Realizing that they failed the test, the courtiers left the court quietly and then they never thought about being the King’s Advisor. Flowers for Akbar One day Akbar was taking a walk in his Royal gardens with several courtiers. Many flowers were flowering at that time of season.Apoet pointed out towards a beautiful flower and said, “Look Jahaanpanaah, how beautiful flowers that is? No man can produce such a beautiful thing as this.” Birbal was also there. He said, “I don’t agree with this, sometimes man can make more beautiful things than this.” Akbar said, “Oh no Birbal, you are talking nonsense. This flower is really very beautiful.” After a few days, Birbal presented Akbar a very skilled artisan from Agra. He presented a beautiful carved marble bouquet of flowers. The Emperor was very happy to see it, and gave him one thousand gold coins. Just then, a boy came and presented the Emperor a beautiful bouquet of real flowers. The Emperor was very happy to see it too, so he gave a silver coin to the boy. Birbal said, “So the carving was more beautiful than the real thing.” Akbar understood that he had fallen in the hands of his witty minister once again. Birbal’s Sweet Reply Akbar used to ask many odd questions from his courtiers and amused himself. One day he entered the Royal Court, settled in his Royal chair, and asked his courtiers: “What punishment should be given to a person who pulls my mustache?” One said, “He should be beheaded.” Another said, “He should be flogged.” Yet another said, “He should be hanged.” “What do you think, Birbal?” the Emperor asked Birbal. Birbalkeptquietforamoment,andthensaid,“Jahaanpanaah, he should be given sweets.” “What, Birbal? Have you gone crazy? Do you know what are you saying?” Birbal replied politely, “I am not crazy, Jahaanpanaah. And I know what I am saying.” “Then how can you talk like this?” the King asked in anger. Birbal again replied politely, “Because, Jahaanpanaah, the only person can dare to do this is your grandson.” So pleased was the King with this answer, that he gave his ring to Birbal as a reward. Birbal Identifies the Guest A rich man invited once Birbal for dinner. When Birbal reached there, he found himself in a large crowd. The host greeted him warmly and took him inside. Birbal said, “I did not know that there will be so many guests in this gathering.” The host replied politely, “They are not guests, Sir. They are my employees except one who is the only other guest here besides you. Could you tell who that other one guest here is?” “Maybe, I could. Tell them a joke, and I will observe them.” The rich man told the joke and everybody laughed uproariously. Perhaps this was the worst joke Birbal had ever heard in his life. Now the rich man asked Birbal, “I have told the joke, now you tell me who the other guest here is?” Birbal pointed out towards a man and said, “He is that other guest.” The rich man was very surprised hearing this that how could he recognize the other guest. He said to him, “You are right Birbal, but how did you recognize him?” Birbal said, “Because only employees can laugh on such a joke. He was the only person who did not even smile on your joke, so I immediately recognized him as the other guest.”
  23. 23. Karma 23 Sports Page. In this issue, we will discuss about an interesting game. It is Khabbadi. Kabbadi i is a team sport originally from the Indian subcontinent. Two teams occupy opposite halves of a field and take turns sending a “raider” into the other half, in order to win points by tagging or wrestling members of the opposing team; the raider then tries to return to his own half, holding his breath during the whole raid. Kabaddi is popular throughout South Asia, and has spread to Southeast Asia, Japan and Iran. It is the national game of Bangladesh where it is known as Hadudu. It is the state game of Punjab, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and Maharashtra in India. It is played by the British Army for fun, to keep fit and as an enticement to recruit soldiers from the British Asian community. In the team, or transnational, style of kabaddi, two teams of seven members each occupy opposite halves of a field of 12.5m × 10m (roughly half the size of a basketball court). Each has five supplementary players held in reserve. The game is in 20- minute halves, with a five-minute half-time break during which the teams switch sides. Teams take turns sending a “raider” to the opposite team’s half, where the goal is to tag, wrestle, or confine members of the opposite team before returning to the home half. Tagged members are “out” and sent off the field. Meanwhile, defenders must form a chain, for example by linking hands; if the chain is broken, a member of the defending team is sent off. The goal of the defenders is to stop the raider returning to the home side before taking a breath. If the raider takes a breath before returning, the raider is sent off the field. A player can also get out by going over a boundary line or part of the body touches the ground outside the boundary, except during a struggle with an opposing team member. Each time a player is out the opposing team earns a point. A team scores a bonus of two points, called a lona, if the entire opposing team is declared out. At the end of the game, the team with the most points wins. Matches are staged on age and weight. Six officials supervise a match: one referee, two umpires, a scorer and two assistant scorers. The name, sometimes chanted during a game, derives from a Hindi word meaning “holding of breath”, which is a part of the game. History and development of the game. The sport has a history dating to pre-historic times. It was probably invented to ward off group attacks. The game was popular in southern Asia in different forms under different names. A dramatized version of the Mahabharata has made an analogy of the game to a tight situation faced by Abhimanyu, heir of the Pandava kings, when surrounded by the enemy. Buddhist literature speaks of the Gautam Buddha playing Kabaddi. History reveals that princes played to display their strength and win their brides! The game, known as Hu-Tu-Tu in Western India, Ha-Do-Do in Eastern India and Bangladesh, Chedugudu in Southern India and Kaunbada in Northern India, has changed through the ages. Modem Kabaddi is a synthesis of the game played in various forms under different names. Kabaddi received international exposure during the 1936 Berlin Olympics,demonstratedbyanancientsportsteamofMaharashtra in India. The game was introduced in the Indian Olympic Games at Calcutta in 1938. In 1950 the All India Kabaddi Federation came into existence and compiled standard rules. The Amateur Kabaddi Federation of India (AKFI) was founded in 1973. After formation of the Amateur Kabaddi Federation of India, the first men’s nationals were held in Madras (re-named Chennai), while the women’s were in Calcutta in 1955.The AKFI has given new shape to the rules and has the right to modify them. Kabaddi was introduced and popularized in Japan in 1979. The Asian Amateur Kabaddi Federation sent a great sportsman of India to tour Japan for two months to introduce the game. In 1979, a return test between Bangladesh and India was held at different places of India including Mumbai, Hyderabad, and Kabbadi
  24. 24. Karma 24 Punjab. The Asian Kabaddi Championship was arranged in 1980 and India emerged as champion and Bangladesh runner- up. Bangladesh became runner-up again in 1985 in the Asian Kabaddi Championship held in Jaipur, India. The other teams in the tournament were Nepal, Malaysia and Japan. The game was included for the first time in the Asian Games in Beijing in 1990. India, China, Japan, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh took part. India won the gold medal and has won gold at the following three Asian Games in Hiroshima in 1994, Bangkok in 1998 and Bussan in 2002. India won the gold medal in the 2006 Asian Games at Doha. Attempts to popularize kabaddi in Great Britain saw British TV network Channel 4 commission a programme dedicated to the sport. The show, Kabaddi, on Channel 4 in the early 1990s, failed to capture viewers despite fixtures such as West Bengal Police versus the Punjab. Kabaddi was axed in 1992, but not before its presenter Krishnan Guru-Murthy suffered a collapsed lung while participating in the sport. In the 1998, Asian games the Indian Kabaddi team defeated Pakistan in a thrilling final match at Bangkok (Thailand). The first World Kabaddi Championship was in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, when 14,000 at the Copps Coliseum watched top players from India, Pakistan, Canada, England and the United States. The next edition was in Surrey, British Columbia, which hosts the first all-kabaddi stadium. India has remained world champion since it was included in Asian Games and South Asian Federation games. In 2008, a great man mooted a professional world kabbadi league with sponsorship to attract the best players; this league will be based in India with tournaments in Canada as well. The current Kabaddi Championship team consists of several local Indian players. Kabaddi is now a very popular game and is a regular sport in Asian Games, Asian Indoor Games and Asian Beach Games apart from SAF Games. Kabaddi will be a demonstration sport during Commonwealth Games 2010 at New Delhi. There are two major forms followed in this game. They are Surjeevani and Gaminee. Now we will discuss a little bit about both of these forms. In Surjeevani Kabaddi, one player is revived against one player of the opposite team who is out, one out, one in. The duration, the number of players, the Kabaddi Federation of India has fixed dimensions of the court, etc. This form of Kabaddi is the closest to the present game. In this form of Kabaddi, players are put out and revived and the game lasts 40 minutes with a 5-minute break in between. There are nine players on each side. The team that puts out all the players on the opponent’s side scores four extra points for a ‘Iona’. The winning team is the one that scores most points after 40 minutes. The field is bigger in this form of Kabaddi and the ‘cant’different in various regions. Modem Kabaddi resembles this form of Kabaddi especially with regard to ‘out & revival system’ and ‘Iona’. The present form of Kabaddi is a synthesis of all these forms with changes in the rules. Gaminee form of kabbadi is played with nine players on either side, in a field of no specific measurements. The characteristic is that a player put out has to remain out until all his team members are out. The team that is successful in putting out all the players of the opponent’s side secures a point. This is akin to the present system of ‘Iona’. After all the players are put out, the team is revived and the game continues. The game continues until five or seven ‘Iona’ are secured. The game has no fixed time. The main disadvantage of this form of Kabaddi is that the player is not in position to give his best performance since he is likely to remain out for the better part of the match until an Iona is scored. The following skills are required for a kabbadi player. By generating these skills one can become a great player. This can be achieved easily by continuous practice. Holding breath, raid, dodging, movement of hand and foot, formation, safe raid, holding, kick, side kick, front kick, round kick, sitting kick, offensive skills, starting a raid, body position during raid, movements during raid, penetration, touching with the hand, vertical and horizontal swing of arms, defensive skills, wrist catch or lock, crocodile hold, over the shoulder catch, ankle catch and lock. This is a wonderful team game. One can enjoy a great team spirit in this game. Even though this is one of the most ancient games, it has taken a modern shape to fit today’s world. In the next issue, we will meet with some other different game.

  26. 26. Karma 26 Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true. Everyday is a gift, that’s why they call it the present. The future depends on what we do in the present. The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness. You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough. The first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want. Life is like an onion: You peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep. Life without love is like a tree without blossom and fruit. Life is just a mirror, and what you see out there, you must first see inside of you. Man who waits for roast duck to fly into mouth must wait very, very long time. Individual glory is insignificant when compared to achieving victory as a team. Victory is sweetest when you’ve known defeat. A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Knowledge talks, wisdom listens. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me! Criticizing is easy, art is difficult. Violence won’t solve a thing. It makes it more challenging to solve, though. A winner listens; a loser just waits until it is their turn to talk. He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened. If you are not part of the cure, then you are part of the problem. A goal properly set is halfway reached. Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal. Go as far as you can see, and when you get there you will see farther. An archer cannot hit the bull’s-eye if he doesn’t know where the target is. Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you’ll land amongst the stars. A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds. If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things. Commander’s Commandments.
