  • 2. His Holiness wamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar S Those who claims that jyotish is not vedic and doubt on its authentication every time. Please do read this.. This article is written by krishna kumar Bagri ,A great astrologer who has vast experience in this field.I wish to share this which make things clear. Jyotish is Ved-Anga Vedas have six Angas 1. Shiksha 2.Kalpa 3. Nirukta 4. Vyakaran 5. Chhanda and 6. Jyotish Some Astrologers have a misunderstanding that Jyotish is not a part of the Ved, which is utterly a nonsensical misunderstanding. Had these Astrologers been well read, and done their homework, probably this air of disbelief would not have risen since last few years. Through this post I attempt to reinstate the fact that the Jyotish which we are into is indeed a Vedanga Jyotish. Karma - 4 1) The 4th Mantra of the 8th Sookta of the 10th Kanda of the Atharva Veda talks about the Chakra (Zodiac), with 12 Pradhayas (Spokes or the 12 Parts – Signs ) and 360 Nails ( Degrees of the Zodiac). It also talks of the 3 Nabhies which is nothing but the points of the ellipse (which is But the Zodiac which is not an exact circle but Conical) (One can read about the ellipse in the Wikipedia for further information). (who says that Jyotish was not known to the Ancinet Vedic people after reading this ?) 2) In the 19th Kanda of the Atharva Veda, the 10th Mantra speaks about getting grace from the Moon, the Sun, and from Rahu and Ketu too. (Now from wherefrom Rahu came in the picture if the Ancients did not knew about it they would not have spoken about it) 3) In the Rig veda, the 11th Mantra of the 51st Sookta of the first Mandal, talks about association of Heart Diseases related to the Sun. This Mantra requests the Sun to
  • 3. destroy all Heart troubles to any native. (If this is Not Jyotish, then what is?) (Don’t we have Venus as the karaka for Semen in our Jyotish?) 4) The Mantra 13th from the same sookta as above talks about “Strength and Prowess” being related to the Sun. and requests the Sun to grant power so as enable one to kill his enemies. (If this is not Jyotish then what is?) N.B. I have more than a 100 such references. But who has so much time to put It here ? And whats the payment ? and for whom ? For the Non believers ? Not a Big reward !!! 5) The 1st Mantra of the 115th sookta of the Rigveda speaks of the Sun as the Atma. (Don’t we treat the Sun as the same in Jyotish?) 6) Mantra 89 of 4th Sookta of the 18th kanda of the Atharvaveda relates the Moon to a Watery core. (Don’t we treat the Moon as Watery in Jyotish?) 7) The Bhagavd Gita, Chapter 15 Shloka 13 also talks about the Moon as being Watery and nourishing all Planets – vegetable (Don’t we have the same reference in Jyotish too)? 8) Yajurveda Chapter 15 and Mantra 54 mentions about Budh being related to consciousness (Don’t we have Mercury related to Intelligence in our Jyotish ?) 9) Yajurveda Chapter 19 Shloka 75 talks about the Planet Venus and its relation to the accumulations of Semen in the body. I also have more than a 50 references to the relation of nakshatras to our Jyotish, in the Vedas. But again what is the reward for putting it all here ? Those who believe it matters for them, and those who don’t believe, they don’t matter for us. Yet I have made simple, humble accumulations of data available which has taken ne about an hour’s time to write. If I spend another few hours then I could write more. I also have the relevant Shlokas with me but to type them in Google transliteration is a headache because this is not Hindi but advanced Sanskrit. And to scan them all from various sources, also is not worth the trouble. For More help call Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar @ 408 829 7780. Email: avtemple@aol.com. Karma - 5

He is considered to be the living God for his worldwide followers Q uestion: Is Guru Diksha necessary? Does Guru Diksha has many forms? One can learn even without Diksha. Then why is Guru Diksha so important? A nswer: For a common man nothing is important or necessary. But if a human wishes to rise high in life, if he wants to stop leading an animal existence and become really human then he needs a powerful medium to guide him. He needs a guide who could tell him which Sadhana is good for him, which Mantra best suits him, how he should chant the Mantra and how he can get rid of the obstacles that might arise in life..Only a Guru can explain all this correctly. Every person has two paths to follow in life. A Guru is like a milestone who guides the Sadhak onto the right path and tells him that this is the path for you. Just as a married life is important in this world, similarly to progress in spiritual life one needs the guidance of a Guru. Question: What is the relation between Guru and a disciple like and how does it start? Answer: The relationship between a Guru and a disciple begins on the material plane but it culminates in the spiritual world, in the world of Sadhanas, on the plane of totality. Guru is the formless divine element. And a disciple wishes to devote himself fully in the feet of the divine. Lest he loses his way in this world he needs a Guru’s guidance constantly. Kabir has said that Guru is one’s master and being a disciple means devoting oneself fully in the feet of the Guru. Question: What is the disciple’s duty towards the Guru? Answer: The disciple has just one duty towards the Guru and the Guru too has just one duty towards the disciple. Disciple means one who is disciplined and totally devoted towards the Guru. Guru’s duty is to fuse the disciple into his own form and make him divine like himself. Question: Can the Guru be one’s deity? Answer: Deity means some force or energy in one’s life that is Supreme. One wishes to become one with the deity. If the disciple is so devoted then he can consider the Guru to be his deity. In fact such a feeling makes one a really good disciple. If such is one’s feeling then one can progress very fast towards one’s goal. Question: If a husband and a wife both take Diksha from the same Guru then does that make them brother and sister? Karma - 8
  • 7. Answer: No! The relation of brother-sister and husband-wife are emotional. The relations differ because of differences in one’s feelings. With one a person has physical relation and with the other one is attached as a kin. A wife and a sister both are women. The difference is of feelings. In Muslims one is even allowed to marry one’ s cousin while in the Hindus this is prohibited. It is the feelings which matter more. In the world of Sadhanas when a person gets Diksha it is not a social relation that is formed. It is a relation on the spiritual plane. On the spiritual plane the worldly relations like that of brother, sister, wife, husband do not exist because all are just souls on that level. Hence after Diksha no difference comes in the material relations although on the spiritual plane all are equal and no relations exist. Question: When there are so strict tests to test a disciple then are there tests for a Guru too? Answer: One who is a Guru today must have been a disciple earlier and he too must have undergone severe tests. This is why when a Guru is testing a disciple then the Guru’s worth and his level is also tested. A disciple who fears such test cannot progress. Such an individual is only fit to lead an animal existence of passion and pleasures. Only those who have the guts to face all tests, who have a determination in their eyes are eligible to walk on the great path of spirituality, Only those who can walk miles without complaining can reach the highest pinnacle of success in life. Question: Can a disciple who has had Diksha from one Guru get Diksha from another Guru? Would this be a sin? Answer: If you realize it then you will know that becoming ‘a disciple means trying to, attain to totality in life. Till the disciple has attained to totality in life neither his efforts nor the Guru’s work shall be appreciated. Hence the disciple should never nurture evil thoughts for the Guru and he should get Diksha from the master with a pure heart. He should get Dikshas from a great soul to make his life materially successful and for attaining spiritual success. One should try and attain to totality in this very life. Lord Shree Ram was the disciple of Vashishtth and yet he also went on to become the disciple of Vishwamitra. Even Lord .Krishna who was the disciple of Sandeepan went on to get Diksha from Yogiraj Gunnaateetaanand and reached Siddhashram. Question: What is the use of Mantras and Tantra in the present scientific age? Answer: Scientific age does not mean becoming limited in one’s perception. There are many mysteries which science has not yet been able to solve. Mantra and Tantra can be used to solve the same. Science believes that what we see is the truth and if something cannot be observed then it cannot be true. Let me ask you something. You know that the name of your father is Han Shankar Sharma. How do you know he is you father? Can science prove it? Is there any need to prove it? You know Han Shankar Sharma is your father because all those around you have told you so. And you firmly believe this in this scientific age. You proudly call Han Shankar Sharma you father when the fact is that you never saw him becoming your father. The people of your house told you so and you believed them. Quite similarly being the head of this spiritual family I am telling you that Mantra and Thantra are very authentic. Through them one can progress greatly in life. This fact is as true as the fact that the person you call your father is your father. Question: When we tell our friends, relatives and others that we are accomplishing Sadhanas or we chant Mantras they make fun of us. What should we do? Answer: When a very simple minded person walks down the street the dogs start to bark at him. You can yourself guess what he should do in this situation. If he throws a stone at a dog then four more dogs shall join them because it is their nature to bark. He might even call out to them lovingly or offer them food but they will not stop barking. A determined person is not affected by this. He neither changes his path nor does he slow down. It is the habit of people to criticize others and to laugh at others. They do not have any work. They want to show they are something and hence they take to criticizing others. Let me tell you that even the Nobel prize winner Wen Swimer, American scientist Ginan Jirmi and famous geologist Aram Hill have great faith in Mantras. They spend some time daily in worship. Not just this the father of Karma - 9
  • 8. modem science, Albert Einstein, accepted the presence of the divine, Question: We try many Sadhanas but we do not get results. What is the reason for this? Answer: Every person wants to become rich like Birla and Tata. Everyone wants to be powerful like the political leaders. Many want to be scientists. But all do not succeed. The reason is that they do not fully concentrate in the fulfillment of their aim. A person often tries many things at one time. His energy dissipates and he does not get the desired result or the results are delayed. Birla, Tata, or the scientists or famous men are humans with two hands, two feet and two eyes just like you and us. The difference is that they remain fully concentrated in their aim, while we try to do many things or our efforts are not concentrated. When you try a Sadhana become fully immersed in it. Just think about it constantly. If this happens then sure enough you shall attain the desired level of success. There are thousands of Sadhaks whose letters the magazine has received who have attained the success in Sadhanas. If they can succeed then sure enough you can succeed too. All you need is patience, concentration and full devotion. Question: Why do people fear the word Tantra? Answer: Why do people fear a wire carrying a 440 volt current? The reason is that as soon as it is touched with naked hands one gets a shock and one could even die. But we cannot say that electricity is useless or dangerous, because it makes life so easy. Similarly Tantra produces results immediately and is a very powerful system. Action and reaction in it is immediate. But if used with wisdom then through it the whole life could be made comfortable, successful and prosperous. Question: We try to chant Mantras devotedly but we are not able to concentrate. What should we do? Answer: Present age is of deceit, fraud lies and hence we have no control over our minds. Till we are not free of these we cannot concentrate the mind. For concentrating the mind there is no medicine or potion or process. The best way is to get up early in the morning before sun rise and have a bath. Then one should sit in the open in loose clothes and try to become thoughtless. Try to remove all thoughts from the mind. With regular practice you shall be able to achieve the state of thoughtlessness.After some days you shall have full control over your mind and then you shall be able to concentrate in Sadhnas. Question: Why can’t success be had at the very first attempt? Answer: Sadhanas have a set procedure, a method, a fixed series of actions without following which one could never achieve the desired goal. There are many people who have attained success in Sadhanas by adopting Sadhana procedures. And if Mantra-Tantra-Yantra are part of a science then it cannot be that one person shall gain success through it while the other shall fail The reason for failure is that the Sadhak does not have experience. One needs to adjust radio to a particular frequency Karma - 10
  • 9. to tune in a station. If, for example, station is available at 500 KHz then even 499 or 501 could mean failure to catch the station. Same is case with Sadhanas. If our soul is not able to link properly or there is noise around or Mantra recital is not clear then success remains elusive. One may be on the verge of success but it might slip out of one’s hands due to such reasons. However, if one tries again he can reach that point for if he can touch 499 or 501 he can also reach 500. And then the divine power shall be his. Question: How does Mantra chanting helps? Answer: It is a scientific fact that any word or sound that escapes a person’s lips resonates throughout the universe and can never be erased. Even impossible looking tasks can be achieved through the right resonance. Dr. Fristolov demonstrated how a vibration can be produced in the cells of one’s body through the medium of sound resonance. Through these resonances even physical ailments can be cured. Even the size of vegetables and produce increased by playing sweet music regularly in the fields. Mantra recital too produces a particular sound resonance that spreads throughout the ether, a very fast medium. For example when a Sadhak chants the Mantra related to the sun then the sound resonance reaches the sun in a few moments and after striking it return having gathered from the sun a part of its special power. And when these strike the Sadhak’s body the power is transferred into him. Thus the Mantra produces its effect on the Sadhak’s body, mind and soul. It is important to note, however that till there is not the right frequency in the sound it shall not be able to travel to the sun or bring back its power. Hence correct pronunciation is extremely important. Question: What is the importance of Guru Initiation (Diksha) ? Answer: Diksha or an initiation is a process of consecration of a disciple through which his body becomes astrally transformed day by day and is finally fit enough to express those infinite potentials of cosmic energy that constitute the first materially active expression of the spirit. A human is always in dark until he gets anchored to the Divine through the blessing of initiation conferred by a Guru. Question: Is a Guru essential for everyone and for attaining totality of life ? Answer: Certainly. The Guru is the foremost requirement for a man seeking exhaltion of human life. A disciple is spiritually magnetised by the reverent contact with a Guru; a subtle current is generated. The disciple’s undesirable habit mechanisms in the brain are often cauterised; the grooves of his worldly tendencies are beneficially disturbed. Momentarily he finds the veil of Maya lifting and glimpses the reality of bliss.Actually a Guru is present in the inner conscience of his disciple. A Guru who is physically present before a disciple, enable the disciple to have a vision of the Guru present within his inner conscience and as soon as the disciple perceives the magnificent form of Guru within his inner core, his spiritual progress begin. Question: It is said that in the previous life a disciple has had already been linked with the Guru of his present life and Guru of the previous lives again meets and associates with his disciple. If it is true then what causes delinking of a disciple with the Guru of his previous births and why the disciple has to make efforts in locating and meeting his Guru ? Answer: It is true that a disciple is linked with his Guru since many previous lives. The Guru of previous life remains the Guru in the present life, but when the disciple is born, due to his upbringing he forgets his Guru and on getting maturity starts his search for his Guru.One remains enveloped by uncertainties till he finds the Guru of his previous life. At that moment his spiritual revelations begin instantaneously and the feeling of respect and surrender to the Guru gets stronger. He gets bliss in his Guru’s presence and remains ever keen to make maximum sacrifices and this happens when one gets linked with the Guru of previous birth. Question: Where does the Guru-disciple relationship begin and where does it mature ? Answer: In reality this relationship commences when a disciple contacts the Guru for his materialistic problems and later this culminates into a spiritual relationship. The Guru element is a formless element before which a disciple makes complete surrender and because of this, initiation by the Guru is considered the first basic requirement of the spiritual aspirant. Karma - 11
  • 10. Learning in absence of a Guru is like a woman getting pregnant in her husband’s absence, which is illegitimate and impractical. Similarly systematic learning is possible only through a Guru. On receiving initiation, the Guru-disciple relationship is established and this leads to success in life. In life, Guru may exist in many forms as father, brother, master or servant. In Gita, Lord Krishna says, “You can consider me as a father, brother or husband which implies that I shall bestow my grace in accordance with your views and feelings”.Some people seek initiation from Guru for their selfish interests, for getting cured from diseases or just for fun sake whereas there are some people who sincerely desire to attain totality and the Guru fulfils their wishes according to the feelings they have for their Guru. Question: After receiving initiation from the Guru, I did the Mantra Japa for a long time but I did not derive any success. Now my confidence is shaken. What are the reasons behind my failure? How can I know as to which Mantra shall suit me ? Answer: It is like one marrying many times but none of the marriage is successful. For a successful married life there must be a perfect unison between husband and wife. Similarly in case of Mantra, one should identify the ideal Mantra and then emotionally integrate himself with that Mantra. Secret of success in Mantra Sadhna lies in ceaseless practice of chanting till the aspirant reaches his destination. In materialistic life one can go on marrying and changing wives but in the spiritual life this rule does not hold good. One Guru, one Mantra and one pattern of Sadhna are the cardinal points of success. Question: Is it essential to include Yantra in Sadhna practices? How does a Yantra help in attainment of optimum success ? Answer: A Yantra is very significant and peculiar in itself because each Yantra has its own ‘Aura’ (That essence which emanates from all living things and affords an atmosphere for occult phenomena). The aura shown in pictures around the faces of Lord Rama and Krishna is not imaginary instead it is a real subtle emanation. Recently, the Killian couple of Russia has invented a new technique of viewing this aura. After taking thousands of photographs of different persons they have concluded that each person and object has its own aura but due to our narrow vision, we cannot see that aura.. A Yantra also possesses its own aura due to which during recitation of Mantra, the Mantra remains in close coordination with its Yantra. The Mantra, by getting reflected from its Yantra, creates a specific atmosphere which is essential for the success of the aspirant. If a Yantra is engraved properly and is also sanctified, enlivened and energised with special Mantras, it imparts a definite influence and therefore it is essentially included in Sadhna practices. Question: What is the secret behind the use of rosary during Sadhna practices ? Answer: As I have mentioned earlier that each object has its aura which co-ordinates itself with the aura of the aspirant. The rosary used in Sadhna or worship is not to count the number of recitations of Mantra instead it is purposely used to get the desired success. A rosary of Tulsi (Basil) is used for devotion and that of coral is used to eliminate the ailments concerned with hypertension. In the same way, a rosary of Rudraksha is helpful for getting tranquility and a successful meditation. A rosary of rock crystal has the property of attracting the sound waves and consequently it is recommended for every Sadhna. During the performance of Sadhna, when the rosary is in the hands of aspirant, it’s aura gets linked up with that of the aspirant and union of these two auras offers concentration to the aspirant which proves beneficial for achieving the desired success. Question: Does a defective pronunciation of Mantra impart any adverse effect ? Answer: No, this is not the case. Firstly, it should be kept in mind that the recital of Mantra must be clear and correct and for this purpose, the aspirant should learn the correct pronunciation in the guidance of a competent Guru but even if it is not possible, there is no obstacle during chanting. In case of faulty pronunciation, the effect may be mitigated but there should be no suspicion in the mind about the harmful consequences of faulty recitation or defective pronunciation Karma - 12
  • 11. Question: What is the role of faith during Sadhna practice ? Answer: Faith is an excellent faculty of the mind and a moving force in spiritual field. It is the wealth of an aspirant. If the Sadhna is performed with the power of faith, the aspirant attains quick and sure success. On making gradual and continuous efforts, this faith increases spontaneously and confers a strong base in the personality of the aspirant. together. In such a situation, credit of pious deeds of the Guru gets transferred to the disciple and all the accumulated sins of the disciple gets transferred to the Guru. Consequently on this account the Guru has to pay in terms of difficulties and pains for the misdeeds and sins of the disciples. It is because of this fact that a Guru initiates a limited number of disciples so that the Guru’s sufferings on account of the disciple’s sins are minimized. Question: What is Guru Purnima and its importance ? Answer: Anniversaries of great saints, holy days are celebrated once a year. Similarly all Gurus of the world have been allotted a day in the year for them. It is Purnima day. Purnima is a full moon day and Guru means remover of darkness. This day, Guru removes ignorance of the disciple, enlightens him and provides him luminousness of a full moon, that is why this day is called Guru Purnima. This day disciples collect and completely surrender before their Guru and in turn Guru confers upon them the enlightenment they need. Question: When the capable Guru possessing divine attainments is observed undergoing pains and sufferings, faith in him gets shaken up. Why do they suffer at all ? Answer : If in materialistic context, a disciple’s faith in Guru gets shaken then the one who is initiated is just pretending to be a disciple. A disciple is an integrated part of the Guru and he shares the joy and sorrow of his Guru. A spiritual superman is able to minimize the physical and mental troubles of his disciples by assuming a part of their Karmic burdens. Just as a rich man relinquishes some money when he pays off a debt for his prodigal son, who is thus saved from direct consequences of his folly, so a Guru willingly sacrifices a portion of his bodily wealth to lighten the misery of the disciples. Patanjali in his famous treatise on Yoga clearly states that by taking the responsibilities of a disciple, the Guru in material life, has to face shortages, difficulties and suffers pains. In reality this is an illusory cover and an illusory scene for a disciple that the Guru has a problem on account of his disciple’s action. Such disciple is fortunate who gets a Guru of high order and becomes free of the consequences of his misdeeds and sins. When you are a disciple, pains are problems of the Guru should get to your heart and in such situations, it becomes your moral duty to come forward and extend your full co-operation and to give to your Guru maximum affection. Question: Those, who dedicate their lives at the feet of the Guru on Guru Purnima day are called ‘Jeevan Dani’, what does this mean ? Answer: After receiving initiation, the disciple surrenders his body, soul and every thing he possesses, at the feet of his Guru. But in the busy modern life, the disciple along with his family lives hundreds of kilometres away from his Guru and in such circumstances the process of disciple’s submergence into the Guru gets hampered.According to the norms obtained from the Shastras, some disciples renounce their position, prestige, house, wealth and come to the Guru’s residence for ever either alone or with their wives. Such persons do not have any desire or ambition and such self sacrificing disciples are called Jeevan Dani. They attain dizzy heights at the appropriate time and shine like the Sun. Question: Is it true that the Guru has to suffer on account of disciple’s actions ? Answer: It is absolutely true. The Guru-disciple relationship is very deep. When strong links get established between the souls of disciple and Guru, their inner consciences get merged Question: How can those disciples, who are not resident in Guru Ashram, serve their Guru ? Answer: Serving the Guru stands for soul purification, while living away from the Guru, he can be served by following his directives. Most of the Guru’s time is spent in thinking, attaining still higher spiritual elements and doing penance. In such circumstances, one Karma - 13
  • 12. should look to the material needs of the Guru, such that the Guru is able to give his maximum time for creative purposes. Therefore, the disciple should send portion of his income every month or year to the Guru. On the Guru’s birthday or Guru Purnima, the disciple should go to Guru’s Ashram and serve his master. Propagation of literature authored by the Guru among friends and relatives or co-operation in publication of such works is the disciple’s paramount obligation and thus the disciple can serve his Guru. Question: Who is a Sadhak? Who is eligible to do Sadhana? What are the virtues of a good Sadhak? Answer: A Sadhak is one who is aware of the science of Tantra and Mantra. The world of Sadhana discriminates not between a man and a woman. Both are equally eligible to try any ritual.A small success cannot raise one up in life; only Sadhanas can bring total success. Sadhana means directing all one’s energy - conscious and sub conscious - towards one goal. One who musters all energy and will power and speeds like an arrow towards one’s goal is known as a Sadhak. Only such an individual can achieve the highest level of success.The foremost requirement of being a Sadhak is concentrated thoughts - one’s mental power must not be spewing in different directions. When one has a composite mind the goal no longer appears to be distant. Then one is not annoyed or troubled by trifle problems, then hopelessness never pervades his life and he keeps moving ahead, resting not till he has reached his destination. Only such a individual can be called a Sadhak. Only such a person can outshine millions of fellow beings. There can be no doubt that such a level of success is impossible without divine help, but pleading or begging cannot secure such help for an individual. For that one has to brim over with manliness and confidence. A true Sadhak’s motto is “Shareeram Saadhyati Va Paatyati” i.e. I shall secure success or I shall die in the process. This spirit of do or die, this feeling of challenge makes one a Sadhak. Only such an individual can attain spiritual success and in the process material success as well. One has to kick all problems and move forward for achieving success. One who can even look death in the eye, one who feels free of all worldly shackles and handicaps can be a real Sadhak. Question: Generally we believe that no sooner do we get Diksha from the Guru we become disciples. Is this the real meaning of the term Diksha or does it have a deeper meaning? What had Gurudev to say about being a disciple? Answer: You say that you are a disciple. But know it that disciple is a stage after a Sadhak. The word disciple is synonymous to Upanishad which means sitting close. To whom? To the Guru! One who seeks the company of the Guru, gathers pearls of precious knowledge from him, and thus tries to strike a perfect balance of mind is a disciple. One who has merged his self totally into the Guru is a disciple. Just bowing to him won’t make you a disciple, getting Diksha too won’t. Guru Diksha is only an attempt to get closer to the Guru, but one really does when one devotes oneself fully in his feet, when one feels divine love blooming in one’s heart. A disciple is one who values every word of the Guru, who always takes the path shown by the master. To obey is the duty of a disciple argument mars his claim to discipleship. The second duty of a disciple is service to the Guru i.e. becoming instrumental in his mission. Only one who serves and is obedient is a true disciple. One who actively completes the task assigned to him by the Guru is a true disciple. The process of becoming a disciple is very difficult. One has to be egoless and have a spirit of do or die. One who envisions the Lord in the Guru’s form is a real disciple. A Guru may not call you, but a disciple rushes to him whenever he can. Service and total devotion are the virtues which make one a disciple and one who gains these jewels is envied even by Gods.

  • 14. SUCCESS IN SOOLINI SADHANA I obtained Diksha from Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar ji in 2002. Since then I have been regularly chanting Guru Mantra. Our family has many enemies. We were confused what we should do. We did not know how to escape them.Then Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar ji suggested that to defeat all enemies we should try with some Atahrva Thantra RitualsSadhana. We procured the Sadhana articles and started the Sadhana. We accomplished the Sadhana and today the enemies dare not harm us. This has been possible only by the grace of Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar ji.We wish to visit Gurudev but our circumstances prevent us from doing so. Gurudev please bless us and always keep guiding us so that we have to face no problem. - Manjula Chauhan, ; Louisville, KY, USA GURU SAVES LIFE It was delightful to join the Guru Poomnima Sadhana Camp of Baytown, Texas, USA this year . we were all taking a ride around the city in my son’s car. Along with my wife there were some relatives too.Suddenly a child came in the way. To avoid hitting it the driver swerved the auto to one side. However it overturned and was badly damaged. But none of us were seriously injured. Some received minor injuries. May Gurudev protect us thus always.When we got out and looked at the auto we could not believe that we were alive. It had come to rest on the edge of a huge drain. If it had crashed into it we would certainly have perished because it had been raining heavily for the past few days and the drain was overflowing. May Gurudev’s grace shower on us always. Dr Meena Singhadia, Rhode Island, USA ALL BY GURU’S GRACE In December as directed by you I started the Atharvana Soolini Rituals in order to complete chanting of its Mantra. I did the Rituals both in the morning and at night. When I started the Mantra chanting all was fine. Fifteen days went by but I had no divine experience. But suddenly one day my body became tense and my hand telling the beads of the rosary stopped. There was intense pain in the whole body. I could hardly hold the rosary. Then I clearly heard a woman’s voice. I could not understand what was going on. Then again my fingers started to move and I resumed the Mantra chanting. That night I felt very light. I realized that Mother Yakshini Soolinii was there somewhere nearby. Thus I completed chanting in 21 days. I had to perform oblations twelve thousand times in the holy fire. Along with other disciples of Swamiji Siddhar Ji we started the Yagna. The Yagna had just started when suddenly a milky light appeared in the room. One of the disciples even took a photograph of the divine light, Then there was a loud knocking at the door. When the door was opened there was no one there. When the Yagna was over the sweets were distributed. After some days when the negatives were developed we clearly saw the form of Goddess Bathala Bhairavi in the picture of the holy fire. It is all due to the grace of revered Swamiji Siddhar Ji that I could accomplish such a tough Rituals. When we were singing a hymn, in the end one of the disciples became so overwhelmed by the divine atmosphere that she suddenly shouted - Gurudev is here! Sing loudly! Thus this wonderful Rituals was accomplished with amazing experiences. May revered Swamiji Siddhar Ji always shower his grace on us. - S.B. Singh, Jackson Heights, New York, USA GURU IN MY DREAMS One night after I had gone to bed I had the glimpse of Swamiji Siddhar Ji in a dream. I saw a scene in which a Yagna was going on and it was being performed by Swamiji Siddhar Ji in the company of several disciples. In the next scene I saw Swamiji Siddhar Ji with both palms joined seated before the Yagna fire. Gurudev was chanting Yakshini Bhairavi Mantra. In the third scene I saw that Gurudev had raised his right hand in blessing and he was seated three feet above the ground. A divine radiance was pouring out from his hand and eyes. The brightness of the light made me shut my eyes. The next morning when I saw the rising sun I realized that the light I had seen in the dream was even more bright than the sun. I felt blessed on having the glimpse of revered Swamiji Siddhar Ji. I hope he keeps blessing me all my life. - Karandas Manikpuri, Oregon, USA Karma - 16
  • 15. BROTHER GETS CURED I live in a small town near to Calgary Canada I live with my parents and three brothers. I lost one of my brothers in an accident which some say was caused by some evil force used on him. Now we are only three brothers. My elder brother too had become prey to some such forces and he used to remain mentally ill. Medical help would make him recover for a few days and then again he would lapse into the prior state. Last year in May he became totally mad. We took him to an expert physician His medicines would render him senseless but on regaining consciousness he would again start behaving strangely. We could not think what to do. Then I called up Swamiji Siddhar Ji One of the disciples there told me that Gurudev was in Georgia and he had been told about the problem. Gurudev had assured that he would soon be fine. And truly due to Swamiji Siddhar Ji’s grace he is fine now. We even had him get Diksha and due to the effect of Diksha and Rituals he is perfectly alright. Truly it is a miracle that he has recovered. We are grateful to Swamiji Siddhar Ji. - Pavan Kumar Aggarwal, Calgary, Canada Beitool. In the month of September I obtained Soubhaagyawati rosary which one’s wife is supposed to wear. But she was having her periods and so she could not wear it immediately. In the month of October we were going by jeep to the temple of the Goddess. I was driving. With me was my family and the families of two friends. In all there were thirteen persons travelling. It was around 1 pm and the vehicle was cruising at a speed of 70 mile per hour. Suddenly the jeep went off the road and ploughing through bushes it stopped at the edge of a field. I received some injury on my lips. Other passengers were also hurt but not much. The jeep was not damaged at all. Following us were two scooters. They stopped and asked if somebody was hurt. They were surprised to find none was, for they had thought at least one or two would have broken some bones. I got first aid for my lips and then we resumed our journey.

As usual that day I was engaged in worship early in the morning. Suddenly I had a very strange experience. As I was chanting the Guru Mantra my eyes closed on their own. I wanted to but could not open them up. Thereafter I started to chant the Chetana Mantra. I felt as if my body had become lifeless. I also felt as if I was not in my Rituals room rather I was somewhere else where there was snow on all sides. Then suddenly I saw Swamiji Siddhar Ji . He was seated on a very clean and huge rock. His eyes were closed and he was deep in Samadhi. Very wonderful was the scene. For some moments the scene remained before my vision and then suddenly I opened my eyes to find myself at home. It seemed as if I had travelled from somewhere far. Tears were flowing incessantly from my eyes and I was feeling very peaceful at heart. I have had many experiences during Mantra chanting but this experience was unique. It was all due to the love and blessings of Swamiji Siddhar Ji.

The pain grew so much that I found it difficult even to walk. Many expert doctors were consulted but the pain grew worse. I became very worried and one day while worshipping Gurudev I prayed to him to cure me so that I could attend the marriage of my son. I even sent a letter to Gurudev to this effect. Then all of a sudden I came into contact of a person who knew about nerves and how to cure related ailments through massage. The doctors advised me against it but I went to the person for three days and within three days I was fully cured. The marriage went off well and I could participate in it due to Gurudev’s grace.

Should I call you the soul of mankind or their saviour. Or should I call you epitome of divine peace. Should I cal you a rare gem of India or the crowning glory of the world. Should I call you Divine in human form or should I call you the Omnipotent and Omnipresent.

Dr Ranjita Patel, Chicago, Illinois, USA IMPOSSIBLE ACCOMPLISHED BY GURU’S GRACE After having Guru Diksha I have had great spiritual and material success. In the year 2012 I had accomplished the Trishakti Rituals. I am a forest guard posted in the Harada forest of Madhya Pradesh. In the history of these forests, there have been several encounters with poachers and criminals in which four guards lost their lives. Many guards have escaped these attacks with injuries. The murderer of one of the guards was absconding for the past thirteen years and the police had failed to nab him in spite of the best of their efforts. Catching him had become a challenge for everyone. One day I prayed to Swamiji Siddhar Ji and took the pledge to catch him. I asked for three days from my officers to complete this impossible mission. I was unlucky on the first two days and on the third day too success seemed just as elusive. I had given up hope and was resting in my home having had food when I started to chant the Guru Mantra. My eyes rested in the picture of Swamiji Siddhar Ji that was placed in my room. I prayed to Him to help me. All of a sudden there was a throbbing in my naval region and I got up. It s three o’ clock in the afternoon. As if under a spell I left my house in search of the culprit and within a few hours he was in my custody. With Swamiji Siddhar Ji’s grace I was able to nab a criminal who had continued to evade the police for so many years. Now all forest guards feel safe and after this there have been no illegal activities. On the Republic Day on 26th of January, the Forest Officer awarded me a certificate for valour and the District Collector and the Police Chief also applauded my efforts. All this has been possible only through the grace of Swamiji Siddhar Ji. -Kiran Kishore Andariya, Patna, Bihar, India SAVED FROM CERTAIN DEATH A year back I and my friend were riding back from some place on a scooter.

Our scooter too skidded and we fell down. As I got to my feet I was surprised that I was not in the least hurt. My friend got some injuries in the back and he had to get treatment for two months. What was most surprising was that the little girl was not hurt at all. It seemed as if someone had caught her in midair and gently placed her on the ground. I believe that it was due to the grace of Swamiji Siddhar Ji that neither I nor the girl was hurt. We could both have been badly hurt but had a miraculous escape. Even the rider of the Hero Honda had to suffer for a week due to the injuries. -Dr. Susheel Shrma, Sultanabad, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India first attempt. At first my name was in the waiting list. When I tried to find about the allotment of seats in each college I was surprised to see that there was just one seat that was free. I wished for admission in the Indore College which is the best among all colleges. There were 24 other candidates ahead of me in the merit list and I was sure that one or the other would be given the seat. I started to chant the Guru Mantra hoping for the best. And amazingly through the power of Guru, the Indore seat remained vacant till it was my turn. And I got that seat. I am now convinced that if Guru Mantra is chanted with faith and concentration then it cannot fail to produce the desired result. Thus with the blessing of Swamiji Siddhar Ji even a seemingly impossible wish of mine was fulfilled. -Ganesh Dilaware, Flushing New York GLIMPSE OF THE GODDESS CHHINMASTA With the blessings of revered Swamiji Siddhar Ji I decided to accomplish Mahavidya Rituals and I did achieve success in them. And during a Rituals I even had the divine glimpse of Goddess Chhinmasta. SAVED BY SWAMIJI SIDDHAR JI I was on the terrace of my house with my father and some other people and we were trying to put a huge slab of stone into position. All of us held the slab. Suddenly my leg slipped and I fell from a height. Luckily the other people were able to balance the slab or it would have crashed upon me. Others rushed to me and asked me if I was hurt and if I was wounded. I told them the truth that I was not at all hurt and was perfectly fine. All were surprised and so was I because the place where I fell was strewn with bricks and stones. In fact when I felt I had the feeling that someone had caught me midway in his arms and gently placed me upon the ground. I can very vividly remember those moments. When I started to do the Chhinmasta Rituals with Swamiji Siddhar Ji’s grace there appeared no problem in it. In the last stages of the Rituals I was concentrating in the Mantra chanting when suddenly there was the sound of opening of the door which was behind me. Soon the Goddess entered the room and I was overjoyed. She blessed me. Next She assumed a very tiny form and for some time hovered over the Yagya fire and then vanished into the Yantra.It was due to Swamiji Siddhar Ji’s grace that I had her glimpse.

  • 20. - His Holiness Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar Is Someone Using Black Magic On You? Due to jealousy, heart burning or some base cause, the Tantriks use cheap tactics to overcome the adversaries, which ruins one’s life. Are you also under such a spell? We must have peace and happiness in life, and to achieve the same we work hard. But we do not get in return to the proportions of our labour. We get very little even after the best of our efforts, we toil to get success in our business but the profits are too little. We do not want any discontentment or discord in our family life, but inspite of our best efforts, the peace and tranquility of our family is disturbed. On the other hand people work very little, but get too much in return. Businessmen have ample wealth just be putting in little efforts, bit we are disappointed even after continuous efforts. It leads us to conclude, that there are some evil forces which make our strategies unsuccessful. Atharva Thantra Prayog : Major Causes Whenever you face such situations, feel assured that someone has used Black Magic on you, as a result of which all your efforts become ineffective. Though such prayog is not easy, but some Tantriks expertise in it and torture innocent souls at the behest of selfish and greedy people. Such Tantriks have made Black Magic their profession, and use it on others indiscriminately at the behest of their adversaries, to mint money. Thus the happy life of the people is spoiled. Such so-called Black-Magicians, no doubt can harm others, but they do not possess the powers to counter such Tantrik moves. As a result the victim keeps on suffering and sometimes it leads to the death of the victim. It is in fact very easy to cause harm through Tantra, but very difficult to amend the damage done. In order to learn the art of saving, one has to undergo Sadhna and Siddhi, and only a Tantrik of high caliber can do so. Karma - 22

All treatments fail.::Constant worries, suicidal tendencies, or a desire to move away from home and family.: Continuous illness of any member of the family.: Too much weakness associated with obesity and being short tempered. : Sterility, without any physical deficiency or without any medical reason. :L Repeated miscarriages or death of the children.: Sudden unnatural deaths in the family.: Problems in the construction of house, factory or any other building.: Shortness of money, in spite of hard labor.: No desire to live. Feels suffocated. Life seems useless. No desire to rise in life.: Sudden quarrels between brothers or the members of the family, without any reason. : Achievement of objectives seems impossible. : Loss in the business of property. ;Ill-health and under-development of children. : Loss of peace due to the fear of enemies and their evil designs. : Discord between spouses or the family.: Greatest efforts resulting in a failure.: Lack of Govt. favors, promotions and the desired transfers.”: Poverty, in spite of hard work. These are some effects which prove that you are under the spell of Black Magic. Though intelligent, you fail to find solution to such problems. It is due to the Tantrik Prayog that all your wisdom, all your strategies and all your intelligence fails. Atharvana Raksha PrayogIn order to overcome all these troubles, Atharva SooliniRaksha Prayog is indispensable, to make such Black Magic ineffective. As already told, such art is known only to those Tantrik scholars, who have performed Sadhna and attained Siddhi. Mantra Tantra Yantra Vigyan Magazine will guide you in this respect. Its aim is to make your life happy, to make your life trouble free, so that you can move forward continuously.

  • 26. There are many problems in getting married. Nowadays getting married in the prescribed age has become very rare. There are a lot of reasons for this. The major problem is called as “Mars Dosha” or “Manglik”. There is nothing wrong in being a Manglik. Mangliks are normal people. Most importantly, Mangliks should realize that being a Manglik is not a matter to be afraid of; it is not the end of the world for them. Matters pertaining to the intensity of the Manglik Dosha and its cancellation play major roles and these are to be studied deeply. Atharva Veda has mentioned a lot about the Manglik Dosha and the remedies for overcoming the Manglik Dosha. One of the biggest misconceptions and fears in the Hindu society with respect to marriage is the presence of Mars Dosha or Kuja Dosha in the horoscope. Mars Dosha occurs, when Mars is placed in the ascendant, 4th, 7th, 8th or 12th house of the natal chart. However, the Atharva Veda includes the 2nd house also in the Mangal Dosha list. People in whose natal chart Mars is placed in the above positions are called Mangliks. Now let us see who is Mars or Mangal or Kuja. Planet Mars in Vedic Astrology Planet Mars is considered to be a commander-in-chief among all the other planets. It symbolizes immense courage, aggression, vitality, confidence and warrior qualities. It drives the fire of independent spirit and sense of purpose among individuals. Mars is also known as Angaraka and Kuja, meaning the burning coal and the fair one respectively. He rules over the two sidereal signs of Aries and Scorpio. He is exalted in Capricorn and fallen in the sign Cancer. Mars is identified with Lord Karthikeya, the god of war. He is the son of Lord Shiva. Karthikeya was born with six heads and he killed the invincible demon Taraka, releasing the Devas from Taraka’s oppression. The above depict the valor, strength, courage and the protective quality of Mars. Thus, Mars is known as the protector of dharma and the purpose in life. Misconceptions about Manglik Dosha Now days a lot of fake astrologers have entered in the field. They are not so well learned scholars of astrology. They have done a lot of misconceptions in all aspects of astrology. That too particularly, they have done a lot of misconceptions about mars. They have Karma - 28
  • 27. done a lot of misconceptions in married life and getting marriage. They have taken their shelter in Magal or Kuja or mars. Some of the most common misconceptions about the planet Mars is that if a person is born on a Tuesday, then he is said to be a Manglik or Marsdominated native. But it is not true. Another misconception is “double Manglik Dosha”, which is a term being used by many astrologers. There is no such term as “Double Manglik Dosha”, which refers to Mars being in any of the above mentioned houses and also in its own sign or in exaltation. Atharva Veda, be On the contrary, Mars in own house or exaltation will considerably reduce the ill effects of the Manglik Dosha. The most famous misconception about being a Manglik is that if he/she is married to a nonManglik, then the spouse is bound to die. The above can be seen in a few cases, where Mars is severely afflicted; overall strength of the horoscope also needs to be checked according to the Atharva Veda techniques. Marriage and Manglik Dosha Manglik Dosha is primarily considered at the time of marriage. Many people consider Manglik Dosha as a bad yoga and are reluctant to marry the persons, who have the Dosha, even if the Dosha is cancelled in the birth chart. The nature of the troubles in marriage absolutely depends on the nature of Mars in the natal Chart and the Navamsa Chart. Also the birth chart’s overall strength should be assessed, especially regarding aspects from any benefic planets on the 7th house and 7th lord. Another factor influencing the Manglik Dosha is the age of the person at the time of marriage. Mars is said to have a maturity age of 28. For a Manglik person, the malefic effects of Mars reduce after the age of 28. Common effects attributed to Mars with respect to its position in the natal chart: Mars in the first house:- quarrelsome on even minor issues; combative and dominating in relationship. Mars in the 2nd house:- harsh speech, lack of money and understanding in the family. Mars in the 4th house :- aggressive emotional nature, which may effect the career-front, with frequent changes in profession. Mars in the 7th house:- a lot of energy; difference of opinion with family members, that too particularly with the spouse. Mars in the 8th house:- early death of the mate. Mars in the 12th house:- financial losses, many enemies and repressed anger. All the aforesaid are only hints and basics.

Swamiji Sri Siddhar has conducted many researches according to Vedic scriptures to analyze the problems in getting good kids. There are too many problems. Even though there are too many problems the problems have been clarified into two major parts. One is getting a kid and the other is bringing up the kid. The Atharva Vedic astrology deals a lot into this subject. Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar has brought out all these factors to the modern world. The Atharva Veda has also classified the kids in various manners. They are sisu, balaka or balaki, tharuna/ tharuni. Balaka is masculine gender and Balaki is feminine gender. Tharuna is masculine gender and Tharuni is feminine gender. The term sisu has the similar meaning of a neonatal and an infant. The sisu is up to the age of pre schooling. Balaka/balaki is up to the teen age. The teenagers are called as tharuna/tharuni. Childbirth is the process in which the baby is born. It is considered as the beginning of a person’s life, where age is defined relative to this event in most cultures. There are many problems in getting good kids.

Children from the age of seven were considered responsible for their actions. Child development refers to the biological and psychological changes that occur in human beings between birth and the end of adolescence, as the individual progresses from dependency to increasing autonomy. According to Atharva Veda and Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar (Dr. Commander Selvam) these developmental changes may be strongly influenced by genetic factors and events during prenatal life, genetics and prenatal development are usually included as part of the study of child development. Developmental change may occur as a result of geneticallycontrolled processes known as maturation, or as a result of environmental factors and learning, but most commonly involves an interaction between the two. Above all these factors there is another invisible factor that decides the nature of a kid. That is astrology. According to Vedic Astrology the Ascendant or lagna is the most important factor to decide the life of a common individual. There is another ascendant too. It is called as “Aadhana Lagnam”. By calculating that Aadhana lagnam one can ascertain the time of the concievement of the particular kid. Atharva Veda has put a rule to the Vedic Astrologers. It is “Learn the process of preparing the Aadhana Lagnam. Unless otherwise it is considered as the most important don’t use it”. analyzing the position of the planets one can easily have the spiritual salvation of the problems faced by a kid. The horoscope is to be prepared according to the Atharva Veda techniques and to be read in the Atharva Veda standard. The rituals are to be performed according to the guidance of a learned Atharva Veda scholar. By doing so one kid can have a wonderful spiritual salvation for the problems. The optimal development of children is considered vital to society and so it is important to understand the social, cognitive, emotional, and educational development of children. In addition there are also some theories that seek to describe a sequence of states that comprise child development. Attachment theory, originating in the work of Atharva Veda, is a psychological, evolutionary and ethological theory that provides a descriptive and explanatory framework for understanding interpersonal relationships between human beings. Attachment theorists consider children to have a need for a secure relationship with adult caregivers, without which normal social and emotional development will not occur. There are a lot of problems concerned with kids. It starts from getting the kids and it goes up to the marriage of the kids.

He turned to his disciples smiled and asked. ‘Why do people shout in anger shout at each other?’Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, ‘Because we lose our calm, we shout.’ ‘But, why should you shout when the other person is just next to you? You can as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner.’ asked the saint. Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the other disciples. Finally the saint explained, . ‘When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other to cover that great distance. What happens when two people fall in love? They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is either nonexistent or very small...’ The saint continued, ‘When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that’s all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.’ He looked at his disciples and said.:’So when you argue do not let your hearts get distant, Do not say words that distance each other more, Or else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.

  • 37. “RESULTS GURANTEED” BY HIS HOLINESS SWAMIJI SRI SELVAM SIDDHAR ONCE HE SAYS “ YES” TO SAVE YOU OR YOUR LOVED ONES TO COME OUT OF ANY KIND OF CANCER PROBLEMS It`s unpredictable, it`s uncanny. It may be lurking within a body and the body wouldn`t know. Many a minor ache, quietly ignored and quickly discarded in the past, may be the begetter of that which is pernicious, lethal and detrimental to life. It shrouds itself in dubious obscurity till the time comes for it to reveal the first symptoms. All this while, the fatal cell stealthily multiplies and spreads. It disseminates its devastating influence till it aborts the very functional mechanism of the human body. Such is the effect of cancer. Cancer is not a single disease. It is a large and complex family of malignancies that can affect virtually every organ in the body. Cancer kills one out of every four Americans, surpassed only by heart disease as the leading cause of death in this country. Over 1.2 million new cases are diagnosed every year, with half of them occurring in the lung, prostate, breast, colon and rectum. Cancer can strike at any age, although it is most common in people over 50. There are around 200 different types of cancer. Two in five people, at some point in their lives, are susceptible to it. Cancer is the term given to a large group of diseases that vary in type and location. It is the result of a continuous, abnormal and relatively autonomous cell proliferation, which is due to the permanent alteration of some cells that gets transmitted to the cell family. It is a disease caused by the loss of control over a cell`s reproduction capacity.Rather than dividing in a controlled and programed manner, the cell continues to divide and multiply abnormally, until a detectable lump or tumor develops. This new growth can be either benign or malignant. A benign tumor does not spread, or metastasize, to other parts of the body and so are not cancerous. They can often Karma - 39

When this tumor spreads, its malignant cells break off and travel through the blood lymph system to other parts of the body, resulting in a secondary tumor, or metastasis. The name given to the cancer, however, is reflective of the origination of the cancer. For example, if lung cancer spreads to the brain, the disease is still called metastatic lung cancer, not brain cancer. Both external and internal factors cause cancer. Factors such as chemicals, radiation, viruses, hormones and inherited mutations may act together to start or further cancer. Ten or more years may pass between exposure and detectable cancer. Anyone, from children to senior citizens can get this disease. What causes cancer in the first place, and how quickly the cells grow and spread, varies from person to person. While a large number of people with cancer overcome the disease and live fulfilled lives for many years, some succumb within a few months. Thanks to the advances made by research, treatments are available for many forms of cancer.

  • 40. -Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar There are many branches in law. It is not that everybody in this world is getting into the heavy clutches of law. Somebody, those who have not committed any mistakes in life get into the worst legal problems and somebody whose only affair is to do the illegal things will not get into the clutches of law. What are the reasons for all these problems? The planets and their positions in the horoscope of an individual are the reasons for these kinds of complications. First we will see the problems related to contract issues and the spiritual salvations for those issues. The contract is a legally written document with the consent of both the parties. The contract is made between two or more persons. The contract may be for a wedding or constructing a building and for any other reasons. According to the law and according to the Vedas the contract should not be broken. Breaking some points of contract or the whole contact is called as a breach of contract. Breach of contract is a legal concept in which a binding agreement or bargained-for exchange is not honored by one or more of the parties to the contract by nonperformance or interference with the other party’s performance. This does not happen to one and all entering into the contracts. It happens to somebody those whose horoscopes are not matching. The next reason is the position of the planets in the horoscopes of the persons who are signing the contract. So it is a must to consult an Atharva Veda scholar and get his opinion before signing the contract. In today’s speed world there is no time for all these things. At least after signing the contract one should spiritually prevent from the breach or break of contract. The misplacement of the planets is to be corrected only by the Atharva Veda Yaksha/Yakshini Devathas. One can easily get the blessings of Atharva Veda Yaksha/Yakshini Devathas only by performing the proper Atharva Veda Thantric rituals. This can be done only by Swamiji Sri. Selvam Siddhar. He is the only living Siddhar in the entire western Countries. To solve your problems contact Swamiji Sri.Selvam Siddhar @ USA toll free 1-888-808-1418 avtemple@ aol.com. The next problem is receiving a citation from a court of law. Citation is usually given for smaller offences. The person who receives a citation should appear before the court of law and explain the reasons for such minor offences. If the court of law is not satisfied, or if the person who neglects to attend the court on the scheduled day, the court will order the police to arrest the concerned person. What is the reason for this? The sixth place in an individual’s horoscope is the place meant for punishments by court or imprisonment. Even the imprisonment is for a small while the imprisonment is imprisonment. Swamiji Sri. Selvam Siddhar’s prayer to the god is “none should get imprisonment or punishments from the court and there should be no crimes or wars anywhere in the world”. He is the only Atharva Vedic Swamiji in the entire country. The problems caused by the planet positions or some kind of evil spirit can be removed only by the Atharva Vedic Thantric rituals. Before starting any kind of ritual, the horoscope is to be prepared according the specifications and norms of Atharva Veda.

A felony is a serious crime in the entire world. Felonies were originally Karma - 42
  • 41. crimes which involved the confiscation of a convicted person’s land and goods; other crimes were called misdemeanors. The Federal government defines a felony as a crime which involves a potential punishment of one year or longer in prison. Crimes commonly considered to be felonies include, aggravated assault and/ or battery, arson, burglary, illegal drug abuse/ sales, embezzlement, grand theft, tax evasion, treason, espionage, racketeering, robbery, murder, rape, kidnapping and fraud. Broadly, felonies can be categorized as either violent or non-violent (property, drug, white-collar) offenses. Some offenses, though similar in nature, may be felonies or misdemeanors depending on the circumstances. For example, the illegal manufacture, distribution or possession of controlled substances may be a felony, although possession of small amounts may be only a misdemeanor. Possession of a deadly weapon may be generally legal, but carrying the same weapon into a restricted area such as a school may be viewed as a serious offense, regardless of whether or not there is intent to use the weapon. It is not that each and every one doing any or all of the aforesaid are caught by the police and taken in front of the law. Only a few are caught. Even only a few out of the caught are punished. What is the reason for this? According to the sayings of Atharva Veda nobody in this earth are born as criminals. But they are made as criminals by the environment and the planetary positions. How they are affected by the environment? If the planets are weak in the horoscope, they become the worst criminals. If the planet Sun’s position is weak it is definite that the person will be imprisoned at least for a few months. At the same time if the planet Sun joins with the planet Saturn he becomes powerless. The powerless Sun always puts the individual in troubles and makes the person to do illegal affairs more and more. The individual will be going to jail often. If the planet Sun is debilitated and sits along with Raaghu, the individual will be put into jail for false complaints and allegations on him. There are more and more aspects to be calculated according to Atharva Veda. The Atharva Veda tells more and more Yaksha/Yakshini devathas to be worshipped through the rituals.

It is a criminal offense. The various versions of “driving under the influence” generally constitute a misdemeanor (punishable by up to one year in jail). However, the offense may be elevated to a felony (punishable by a longer term in state prison) if the incident caused serious injury (felony DUI), death (vehicular manslaughter or vehicular homicide), or extensive property damage or if the defendant has a designated number of prior DUI convictions within a given time period. Each and everyone are driving cars and motor vehicles. Not all of them are drinking alcohol. Only a few of them use alcohol or drugs while driving. Even only a few among these alcohol and drug users are arrested by the police. What is the reason for this? According to Atharva Veda the planets play a major role in changing the mind of a person. Out of the nine planets the planet Mercury controls the brain and mind of an individual. If the planet Mercury is in his own house, the individual will have a clear thinking. That individual won’t do any harm or any kind of unlawful activities. If the same planet Mercury sits along with the planet Mars, that concerned individual will be ready even to inject poison in his blood and will be ready even to do the most unlawful things. How to avoid these sorts of evil planets’ position? To consult Swamiji Sri.

PLEASE CALL HIM IMMEDIATELY@ 408 829 7780( ITS USA CELL NUMBER) The word `stress` is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as “a state of affair involving demand on physical or mental energy”. A condition or circumstance (not always adverse), which can disturb the normal physiological and psychological functioning of an individual. In medical parlance `stress` is defined as a perturbation of the body`s homeostasis. This demand on mindbody occurs when it tries to cope with incessant changes in life. A `stress` condition seems `relative` in nature. Extreme stress conditions, psychologists say, are detrimental to human health but in moderation stress is normal and, in many cases, proves useful. Stress, nonetheless, is synonymous with negative conditions. Today, with the rapid diversification of human activity, we come face to face with numerous causes of stress and the symptoms of anxiety and depression. “Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances.” —Thomas Jefferson The Dyanamics of Stress In a challenging situation the brain prepares the body for defensive action—the fight or flight response by releasing stress hormones, namely, cortisone and adrenaline. These hormones raise the blood pressure and the body prepares to react to the situation. With a concrete defensive action (fight response) the stress hormones in the blood get used up, entailing reduced stress effects and symptoms of anxiety. When we fail to counter a stress situation (flight response) the hormones and chemicals remain unreleased in the blood stream for a long period of time. It results in stress related physical symptoms such as tense muscles, unfocused anxiety, dizziness and rapid heartbeats. We all encounter various stressors (causes of stress) in everyday life, which can accumulate, if not released. Subsequently, it compels the mind and body to be in an almost constant alarm-state in preparation to fight or flee. This state of accumulated stress can increase the risk of both acute and chronic psychosomatic illnesses and weaken the immune system. Stress can cause headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, eating disorder, allergies, insomnia, backaches, frequent cold and fatigue to diseases such as hypertension, asthma, diabetes, heart ailments and even cancer. In fact, Sanjay Chugh, a leading Indian psychologist, says that 70 per cent to 90 per cent of adults visit primary care physicians for stress-related problems. Scary enough. But where do we err? Just about everybody—men, women, children and even fetuses—suffer from Karma - 44
  • 43. stress. Relationship demands, chronic health problems, pressure at workplaces, traffic snarls, meeting deadlines, growingup tensions or a sudden bearish trend in the bourse can trigger stress conditions. People react to it in their own ways. In some people, stress-induced adverse feelings and anxieties tend to persist and intensify. Learning to understand and manage stress can prevent the counter effects of stress. Methods of coping with stress are aplenty. The most significant or sensible way out is a change in lifestyle. Relaxation techniques such as meditation, physical exercises, listening to soothing music, deep breathing, various natural and alternative methods, personal growth techniques, visualization and massage are some of the most effective of the known non-invasive stress busters. Stress Can Be Positive The words `positive` and `stress` may not often go together. But, there are innumerable instances of athletes rising to the challenge of stress and achieving the unachievable, scientists stressing themselves out over a point to bring into light the most unthinkable secrets of the phenomenal world, and likewise a painter, a composer or a writer producing the best paintings, the most lilting of tunes or the most appealing piece of writing by pushing themselves to the limit. Psychologists second the opinion that some `stress` situations can actually boost our inner potential and can be creatively helpful. Sudha Chandran, an Indian danseus, lost both of her legs in an accident. But, the physical and social inadequacies gave her more impetus to carry on with her dance performances with the help of prosthetic legs rather than deter her spirits. Experts tell us that stress, in moderate doses, are necessary in our life. Stress responses are one of our body`s best defense systems against outer and inner dangers. In a risky situation (in case of accidents or a sudden attack on life et al), body releases stress hormones that instantly make us more alert and our senses become more focused. The body is also prepared to act with increased strength and speed in a pressure situation. It is supposed to keep us sharp and ready for action. Research suggests that stress can actually increase our performance. Instead of wilting under stress, one can use it as an impetus to achieve success. Stress can stimulate one`s faculties to delve deep into and discover one`s true potential. Under stress the brain is emotionally and biochemically stimulated to sharpen its performance. A working class mother in down town California, Erin Brokovich, accomplished an extraordinary feat in the 1990s when Karma - 45
  • 44. she took up a challenge against the giant industrial house Pacific Gas & Electric. The unit was polluting the drinking water of the area with chromium effluents. Once into it, Brockovich had to work under tremendous stress taking on the bigwigs of the society. By her own account, she had to study as many as 120 research articles to find if chromium 6 was carcinogenic. Going from door to door, Erin signed up over 600 plaintiffs, and with attorney Ed Masry went on to receive the largest court settlement, for the town people, ever paid in a direct action lawsuit in the U.S. history—$333 million. It`s an example of an ordinary individual triumphing over insurmountable odds under pressure. If handled positively stress can induce people to discover their inherent talents. Stress is, perhaps, necessary to occasionally clear cobwebs from our thinking. If approached positively, stress can help us evolve as a person by letting go of unwanted thoughts and principle in our life. Very often, at various crossroads of life, stress may remind you of the transitory nature of your experiences, and may prod you to look for the true happiness of life. Stress Throughout Evolution Stress has existed throughout the evolution. About 4 billion years ago, violent collision of rock and ice along with dust and gas, led to the formation of a new planet. The planet survive more than 100 million years of meltdown to give birth to microscopic life . These first organisms endured the harshest of conditions—lack of oxygen, exposure to sun`s UV rays and other inhospitable elements, to hang on to their dear life. Roughly 300,000 years ago, the Neanderthals learnt to use fire in a controlled way, to survive the Glacial Age. And around 30,000 years, Homo sapiens with their dominant gene constitutions and better coping skills, won the game of survival. Each step of evolution a test of survival, and survival, a matter of coping with the stress of changing conditions. Millions of trials and errors in the life process have brought men to this stage. Coping with events to survive has led men to invent extraordinary technologies, beginning with a piece of sharpened stone. From the viewpoint of microevolution, stress induction of transpositions is a powerful factor, generating new genetic variations in populations under stressful environmental conditions. Passing through a `bottleneck`, a population can rapidly and significantly alters its population norm and become the founder of new, evolved forms. Gene transposition through Transposable Elements (TE)—`jumping genes`, is a major source of genetic change, including the creation of novel genes, the alteration of gene expression in development, and the genesis of major genomic rearrangements. In a research on `the significance of responses of the genome to challenges,` the Nobel Prize winning scientist Barbara McClintock, characterized these genetic phenomena as `genomic shock’. This occurs due to re combinational events between TE insertions (high and low insertion polymorphism) and host genome. But, as a rule TEs remain immobilized until some stress factor (temperature, irradiation, DNA damage, the introduction of foreign chromatin, viruses, etc.) activates their elements. The moral remains that we can work a stress condition to our advantage or protect ourselves from its untoward follow-throughs subject to how we handle a stress situation. The choice is between becoming a slave to the stressful situations of life or using them to our advantage.

  • 45. - Param Pujya Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar In order to purify our minds we need to consciously choose pure emotions over impure ones, by rising above conditioning. In cultivating a saumya personality, we need to start working consciously and conscientiously on purification of the mind and emotions. We need to learn to choose purer emotions. How do we determine what are the purer emotions? Psychologically speaking, if a certain emotion causes pain in our minds and its expression evokes a painful feeling in those who are in relationship with us, these emotions are not pure ones. If an emotion leaves a smile in our or another’s mind, then it is a pure emotion. Spiritually speaking, the emotions that are conducive to enlightenment are the pure ones. It must be remembered that our emotional choices are learnt ones; they are habits we have formed. In the same situation, one has access to multiple emotional choices. A brave man sees a tiger in the wild and his hunting instinct is activated. A coward sweats with fear and flees. A yogi stays neutral or is filled with non-violent, loving feelings for his fellow living being. The reaction we choose is from the habits created by our culture, education or personal circumstances. Here is an example from world cultures. Let us take anger. In certain schools of modern psychology, a therapist works on bringing to the fore our hidden anger and suggests to the client that he give himself permission to express anger. The question of the ethics of emotions plays no part in this. In India we are often advised to control our anger, but display of anger is still commonplace. In the cultures of SE Asia, anger is particularly frowned upon. You arrive after a long flight to a hotel where you had made a reservation and even reconfirmed it, only to be told by the receptionist that you have not made a booking. If, in your state of exhaustion and frustration you display anger, you will be completely ignored. No one will talk to you till you calm yourself down and become civil and gentle. These are examples of culturally and educationally generated emotional habits. But at a certain time in our lives we begin to examine ourselves. We can make conscious choices, which may be different from those of general culture or family patterns. or example, boys often see their fathers abusing their mother. As a child the boy’s sympathy is with the mother. But as he grows to manhood, he identifies more and more with the father and emulates him. But one may choose to take a different path internally. One may dig deep and bring to the conscious mind, the unconscious memory of how painful it was, as a young child, to watch his mother being hurt; here one taps the ‘son’personality rather than the ‘domineering, insensitive and cruel male’ personality. In USA and other western countries where jurisprudence increasingly takes into account the principles of psychology, it is common for the attorneys to argue that a certain person has abused and hurt his child helplessly because he was conditioned to do so through his own psychological trauma when abused and hurt as a child. The spiritual argument, however, would be based on an extension, a deepening, of the principle of free will. One is free to make one’s choice if one is spiritually awake, to go beyond this psychological conditioning. Karma - 47
  • 46. One may thus make a conscious choice. One may make a resolve to cultivate within oneself the emotional states that create a saumya personality, generating a non-painful feeling and evoking the same in the person(s) in our relationship and opting for that which leads to enlightenment. Even if we ignore this last goal, the other three are worth pursuing in our quest for purification of emotions, bhava-sam-shuddhi. Thus we need to begin to look at our emotions not as something that renders us helpless, whose ‘accidental’ presence we have no choice over, but rather as acts of volition and we choose them on the basis of some moral principles. There you have an ethics of emotions. As one grows spiritually, one frees oneself more and more from psychological, educational and cultural conditioning. One no longer acts adversely towards women because ‘everybody does so’. One does not cast aspersions at people of other ethnic, religious or caste groups just because one is conditioned to believe that he is the best, the highest and the noblest. Spirituality supersedes psychology. As we have shown, we then choose the noble emotions. We change our past habits and learn to react differently. Part of our spiritual journey consists of emotional de-conditioning of the ignoble and re-conditioning towards the noble. Spiritual guides have employed many internal tools to accomplish this purpose. Here is just a short explanation of the concept of the ethics of emotions. All through the history of philosophy, sages and philosophers have spoken of three levels of actions: mental, vocal and physical, from manas, vak and kaya, respectively. In the Zoroastrian tradition we are taught the same: manashni, gavashni, kunashni - to think, to speak and to act in a noble and peacegenerating way. Mental acts are expressed in speech and physical actions. A majority of our mental acts are emotional ones, based not on logic but on feelings and conditioning. This is where the ethics of emotions begins, to discern between right and wrong mental acts and thereby heal your own mind For More help and to come out of any of your problems in your life please call His Holiness Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar for more help.

  • 47. B orn spiritually advanced, indigo children are supposed to change established systems once they grow up, ringing in the golden age as prophesied by spiritual groups. The humongous popularity of Harry Potter books and movies couldn’t have come out of a vacuum. Some part in the children worldwide must have identified with the psychic powers of Harry Potter and company. Now a trend that has come to notice in the West is that many children in our midst are indeed spiritually advanced or psychic. Called Indigo children, they are the subject of a dozen major books, scores of websites and even a feature film. They are called Indigo children because of the predominance of indigo (a dark shade of blue) color in their auras, which clairvoyants can see. Indigo is the color of the third eye chakra, which regulates clairvoyance, or the ability to see energy, visions and spirits. Observers and analysts of the New Age are even arguing that Indigos have a special role in the evolution of humanity. They are here to fulfill the various prophecies of a coming New Age, said to dawn around the year 2012. Says Dr Sunny Satin, California-based NRI hypnotherapist who has been training therapists in India and has conducted seminars in Delhi and Mumbai recently on the Indigos, “Their mission on earth is to change established systems once they grow up.” The Indigo phenomenon was first brought to light by Lee Carroll, the channel for Kryon, and his wife Jan Tober (both also work as a team of self-help professionals in the US) in their 1999 book, The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived. The book carried essays by counselors, paediatricians and educationists. As more and more parents started identifying their children’s traits with those of Indigos, more books and websites cropped up on the subject. The small budget Indigo, a film produced and directed by Hollywood’s Stephen Simon, starring Neale Donald Walsch, author of the bestselling Conversations with God series of books, became an underground hit using the unconventional distribution strategy of screening at churches, etc. The story of the film revolves around an Indigo girl who uses her ingenuity and special powers such as foreseeing events to reunite her dysfunctional family. The film was followed by a documentary on the Indigo phenomenon. Finally, the mainstream media woke up to the phenomenon. Last year, CNN, ABC and New York Times carried stories on the subject. By now educational institutions like the Waldorf, set up by Rudolf Steiner, the anthroposophy founder, and Montessori schools, have developed programmes to cater to the special talents of these children. Support groups have come up to help Indigos’ unsuspecting parents cope with their precocious progeny. A debate is also raging that some of the hundreds of thousands of children diagnosed with ADD (attention deficit disorder) and ADHD (attention deficit hyperactive disorder), may in fact be Indigos. Advocacy groups are offering a fierce opposition to the ADD drug Ritalan (Lee Carrol estimates that 20 per cent of pre-schoolers in the US are on Ritalin). By now the question you will be asking is, how can I identify whether my child is an Karma - 49

According to Lee and Jan’s book, these are the 10 common behaviour traits of Indigos: They come into the world with a feeling of royalty (and often act like it).o They have a feeling of ‘deserving to be here’, and are surprised when others don’t share that.-o Self-worth is not a big issue. They often tell parents ‘who they are’.o They have difficulty with absolute authority (authority without explanation or choice).o They simply will not do certain things; for example, waiting in line is difficult for them.o They get frustrated with systems that are ritual-oriented and don’t require creative thought. o They often see better ways of doing things, both at home and in school, which makes them seem like ‘system busters’ (nonconforming to any system). o They seem antisocial unless they are with their own kind. If there are no others of like consciousness around them, they often turn inward, feeling like no other human understands them. School is often extremely difficult for them socially. o They will not respond to ‘guilt’ discipline (“Wait till your father gets home and finds out what you did”). o They are not shy in letting you know what they need. Dr Deepak Vaide, a physician who writes a weekly Tarot column in The Times of India, claims that he is a clairvoyant and can identify Indigos. He says the percentage of Indigos being born is increasing each year. And since he practices in old Delhi, he notices that Indigos are not restricted to the upper or elite classes. Also, that the Indigo percentage of total children born is going up with each passing year. Closer home, he says, his step-daughter, Vidhi, 21, and nephew, Rohan, 9, are Indigos. Vidhi, who is doing her Master’s in advertising and marketing from Amity, says she is hyperactive, good with gadgets, has an urge for knowledge, wants to do things her way and knows what she wants to do in life - impact lots of people. In Mumbai, Prem Nirmal, an electronics engineer-turned-spiritual guide, hasn’t heard of Indigo children, but feels his daughter, Kalyani, 14, is a spiritual child. “She carries a sense of calm around her and displays a rare maturity.” Kalyani, who studies in standard IX in Singhania School, Thane, finds her thought patterns to be different from her peers, some of whom she finds silly. She pays attention in school, not needing to study at home. She has learnt to play the synthesizer, is learning Bharatanatyam and has had her arangetram already.

The rituals and procedures extend from pre-conception to pregnancy and postpartum period. Manoj Lekhi, a follower of the Bangalore-based guru Rishi Prabhakar, also worked with similar material to guide parents, and has started MET Rishikul Vidyalaya in Bandra, where 150 children of such parents and others are studying. He claims many of the fouryear-olds are able to read books like adults, play the tabla, and stay for extended periods away from their parents. Not everybody agrees that a new generation has dawned. Lina Asher, who founded the Kangaroo Kids-Billabong High chain of schools, refuses to comment. Yet she recounts how her son Drish, now 14 and studying in Melbourne, at age two-plus “once held a plate of chicken, and suddenly asked me, ‘How will you feel if somebody killed your son and cooked him?’ ‘I will cry,’ I replied. ‘I hear the mummy of this chicken crying,’ he said, putting away his plate. He has never touched meat since. What impressed me most was the ingenious way he pre-empted any opposition from me.”Asher also says that in her schools they strive to mobilize multiple intelligences - including spiritual and moral - as brought to light by Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner. Dr Lina Kashyap, head of the department of family and child welfare at Tata Institute of Social Sciences, actually sees a trend opposite to that described in this article, “Parents these days follow rituals and are far removed from religion or spirituality.” She agrees that today’s children have high self-belief, but ascribes it to the socialization process. She accepts that today’s parents are aware of the need to pay better attention to their growing children, but are not able to, mainly because both parents may be working..Now that you have read about Indigos, brace yourself for the next generation of spiritual children. They are called Crystals, said to be even more evolved. What is the difference, you ask. Indigos have one negative trait, they exhibit a lot of anger with the way things are. Crystal children, says Dr Satin, “are pure love - they cannot stand violence, even as entertainment, and they remember their past lives.” The Crystal children have opalescent auras, with beautiful multi-colors in pastel hues, show a fascination for crystals and rocks and are telepathic, writes Doreen Virtue, author of The Care and Feeding of Indigo Children and The Crystal Children. Her comment on the role of the Crystals, “They are the generation who benefit from the Indigos’ trailblazing. First, the Indigo children lead with a machete, cutting down anything that lacks integrity. Then the Crystal children follow the cleared path, into a safer and more secure world.”Well, even if you do not think that your child is an Indigo or Crystal, there is certainly a case for more enlightened parenting, so that we help rather than hinder the holistic growth of our children. After all, as the new generation, the choice of what kind of a world they want to usher in and leave for the generations following them, rightly belongs to them alone.

  • 50. H.H Param Pujya Guru Maharaj Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar None of us are free because we are all pulled and pushed by the relationships in our lives. they determine our moods, motives and actions. how then are we to be free of these factors and sail into relationships that are loving and beautiful, but not coercive? Swamiji used to put a huge premium on relationships. To be, he used to say, is to be related. What he meant by this somewhat cryptic statement was that we are born into a web of relationships with everything that comes our way, including objects and events. Our relationship with the people in our lives and our own selves, are, of course, our primary relationships. There is certainly no doubt that our happiness revolves a great deal around our relationships. There is also no doubt that our relationships, as Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar used to say, are the clearest mirrors of our own states of mind, reflecting all our weakness and strengths, our generosity or lack of it, our sense of security or lack of it, our need to control or not, our sense of caring, loving, nurturing, etc. This being so, how can we ensure that our relationships are the source of joy and happiness in our lives and not of tension, grief and rage? All of us have been through contentious equations with people, perhaps with our parents, siblings, teachers, bosses or peers. We have bullied or been bullied, exploited and manipulated or vice versa, loved or been loved and so on. All of us have experienced the helplessness of depending on others for our happiness. This is never more so than when we fall in love. Suddenly, one person becomes crucial for our happiness. We long to be loved by her/ him, long to please them, long to secure the relationship in some lasting way. Whatever they do affects us, so that we experience the whole panoply of feelings in love: joy, tenderness, giddy excitement, hurt, grief, anger and frustration. In The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle talks about the irony of experiencing pain in a love relationship. How can it be love? he asks. How right he is. What we experience is not love but our own ego’s needs, desires and play of imagination. But insofar as love relationships force us to confront these issues, they are of tremendous importance and constitute a path in their own right. To an extent, these feelings are at play in all our relationships, helping us to see how little freedom and self-determination we really have. Where is freedom, when a word or look from someone can send us into paroxysms of joy or sorrow? Where is freedom when your neighbors’ new car sends you tail spinning into envy and the determination to upgrade your own vehicle? Where is freedom when your father’s disapproval invalidates any achievement, including winning the Nobel Prize? None of us are free because we are all pulled and pushed by the relationships in our lives. They determine our moods, motives and actions. How then are we to be free of these factors and sail into relationships that are loving and beautiful, but not coercive? How can we relate to people in freedom? How can we spin away from this cycle of attraction Karma - 52
  • 51. to some and resistance to others? How can we retain our balance in all situations? How can we be our own person all the time with everyone? These are questions all seekers address for without this ability we are only provisionally ourselves. The controls to our behaviour and ourselves lie outside us and not within. As we inquire deeply into this issue we will once again come to the same hoary conclusion. We can control our reactions, but not that of others. We have no control at all over what people are like, what they think, say or do. Your wife nags you; your subordinate sends the office into gales of laughter by mimicking you; the driver in the car ahead of you is painfully slow. That’s the way they are. What can you do? Oh, yes, you can rave and rant and scream and yell, until they carry you out feet first, a victim to stress and heart failure. Or you can work on yourself. One thing is to recognize that the other person has the perfect right to be who he or she is. Just as we have been given freedom of choice, so have they and therefore it’s up to us to accept them as they are, and not up to them to change themselves to suit you. The plain truth is that the world is not designed to please us; it’s up to us to change ourselves and our attitude to attune to the world. The minute we give people the right to be themselves, we drop all expectations of them. We can’t have any, because we have no control over them. So what do we do with our feelings, reactions and general emotional mess? We take responsibility for them. They are our problem. We have to take ownership of them and process them within ourselves instead of spraying them all over the world. When we truly do this, we go deep within ourselves into the very depth of our being. There we lovingly receive our feelings, wants, needs, desires, anger, grief, in fact any mental movement. Through loving attention and acceptance we gradually assimilate our reactions within us and free ourselves of them. When we become capable of doing this we freewheel out of the control of others and finally into our own. The beauty is that when we give others their freedom, we are actually taking back our own freedom. The attachments that tie us to the world are born out of an untidy tangle of blaming others for our reactions, being dependent on them, wanting them to behave the way we want them to, etc. When we finally free ourselves of all these and accept with clarity that our reactions, feelings, wants, fantasies and what have you are all our projections and others are not responsible for them, and simultaneously that their reactions, etc., are their business and we don’t have to take responsibility for it, we start separating ourselves from others. We begin to cut the Gordian knot that ties us to people. This is freedom. Enjoy it and savour it. It is very hard won. From now on, you will not be dependent on others; you will not be in their control. And therefore, you can reach out to them in friendliness and love. SEXUAL RELATIONSHIPS Presently a large number of marriages ends in divorce, often already after a very short time. Informal relationships are even more fragile. While this is a rather recent phenomenon, the underlying reason has always been there. In previous centuries marriages simply were held together by social pressure and an inability to get a divorce. The underlying reasons that drive relationships apart are rooted in the hormonal characteristics of our sexual relationships. In evolutionary terms we are conditioned to spread our genes as widely as possible, and provide a safe environment for raising our offspring. This means we are programmed to meet, fall in love, mate to conceive a child, and after some time to meet another lover and repeat this procedure. Females are attracted sexually to handsome men, but often choose mates based on resources and parenting potential, and males try to spread their genes by being strongly attracted to any (fertile) female with genetically desirable features. This evolutionary pattern comes to a head after pregnancy when the woman maintains high prolactin levels during breastfeeding, Karma - 53
  • 52. hangover. Depending on our emotional makeup we may now develop a subconscious desire to separate, and many couples do just that. Over time couples start losing interest in sex and withdraw emotionally, or they may try to shift their emotional involvement to other common interests and in this way may be able to maintain a satisfying relationship. and instead of maintaining a loving oxytocin connection with her partner, she now has switched her oxytocin bonding to the baby. In this situation sex is hormonally undesirable, and any orgasmic sex leads to further hormonal and emotional instability. Therefore, what happens presently in our society is perfectly normal in evolutionary terms. The main problem is just the unacceptable amount of emotional distress and social upheaval that it causes. Other casualties are our health and wellbeing, which are greatly enhanced by harmonious long-term relationships. Initially we were bonded together by falling in love through a generous release of oxytocin and enjoyed the exciting peaks of dopamine release during our sexual encounters. Gradually the oxytocin glow faded and we began to fall out of love, and it also became more difficult to maintain an exciting sex life. Instead of enjoying dopamine peaks, increasingly we now have to cope with the dopamine lows after our routine sexual encounters. We begin to see all the faults in our partner that were previously covered by high oxytocin levels (from frequent physical contact without unpleasant subconscious associations). As these dopamine lows may last for up to two weeks this causes considerable strain on a relationship. During this time we tend towards increasing irritability, nagging, resentment, frustration, blaming each other and similar negative emotions as an expression of a biological Still others try maintaining peak dopamine experiences by exploring all the different sexual positions, or start swapping partners, or becoming interested in a new partner. Dopamine peaks can also be maintained by becoming addicted to something, it does not really matter to what. This may be legal or illegal drugs, games, racing and betting, chocolate, or frequently finding a different sexual partner. Apart from causing long-term stress-related and other health problems, addictions also have a host of unpleasant side effects on our capacity for intimacy. Beyond Orgasm With the present structure of our society it is obviously an advantage to form stable cooperative sexual relationships for the benefit of the children and also for the emotional wellbeing of the parents. As this objective is contrary to our evolutionary neurochemical conditioning, we need to find ways to outsmart the hormonal changes that drive us apart. In hormonal terms we need to maximize oxytocin production and avoid the dopamine rollercoaster. Apart from occasional procreating activities, all of this could be done within a loving platonic relationship. However, there is a biological catch: To maintain a strong and healthy body we also need to maintain a strong production of sex hormones. This hormone production is best maintained by sexual feelings. As with muscle activity, it is best to use it or we may lose it. This leads us to two remaining questions: “Can sexual activity without orgasm be satisfying?” and “Is orgasm needed to stimulate our sexual glands and maintain the health of our sexual organs?” These questions cannot be confidently answered from theoretical Karma - 54

N.Y.). SEX AND HEALTH According to psychological studies and statistics in the longer term the vast majority of sexual relationships cause more distress and unhappiness rather than happiness. It is obvious, at least to me, that stress due to failing relationships also has a major impact on our health, emotionally and biologically. Even medical thinking now regards stress as an underlying problem that aggravates all other diseases. Hormonal imbalances, especially dopamine excess or deficiency seem to be the greatest contributors to addictive behaviours, such as drug abuse, compulsive behavior and gambling as well as aggression, violence and attention deficit disorder. Oxytocin, on the other hand, has a beneficial influence on these problems. The main factor in raising our stress levels is probably the inability to discharge bioenergetic static. One common example is watching exciting movies that fire us up, and then going to bed without releasing the induced tension. It is likewise with conventional sex. Initially the body may get charged with skin stimulation and anticipation, but then there is little release, especially for women, if the union lasts for less than 30 minutes. No wonder many women develop emotional problems and gynaecological or nervous complaints, or just switch off and abstain from sex. Men, being less emotionally aware, may just develop physical symptoms instead, such as hypertension, heart disease, prostate problems or impotence. Sexual factors that may contribute to health problems are nutrient deficiencies, hormonal and bio-energetic imbalances, and emotional distress. Several of these may be involved in any one case, and they cannot always be identified. Nutrient deficiencies relate mainly to loss of ejaculate. The seminal fluid is high in zinc and requires much vitamin B6 and omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in fish oils and linseed oil. Deficiency of these is widespread, especially in teenage boys with frequent loss of seminal fluid. The same deficiencies are common in schizophrenia, which starts most frequently in teenage boys. I believe that there is a causal connection. Formerly doctors maintained that excessive masturbation could lead to insanity. They may have been right after all although, without proper investigation, modern medicine dismisses this as a myth. Zinc deficiency also leads to underdeveloped male sexual organs and later in life to enlargement of the prostate gland. By pointing out these connections I do not want to create guilt about masturbation but rather improve nutritional awareness. Also orgasm and schizophrenia are both associated with high and unstable levels of dopamine, while during depression dopamine levels are low. A medical arthritis specialist observed that arthritis tends to get worse with frequent Von Urban’s solution to relieve single or otherwise frustrated women of sexual and bioenergetic tension is a warm douche at bedtime on alternate nights. The duration is from ten to twenty minutes while lying in a bathtub. The water is supplied by fitting some rubber tubing over the tap. This is very relaxing and not meant to induce an orgasm, but will help to provide a peaceful sleep. All diseases and health problems of the sexual organs are likely to be linked to unhealthy sex practices. This includes not only cancers and infections of the sexual organs but also in other parts of the body. Even tumor growth and metastasis are stimulated by stress hormones. Oxytocin counteracts the effects of stress hormones, and less stress means increased immunity and faster recovery. Oxytocin receptors have also been discovered in tumors. Therefore, oxytoxin has a growth Karma - 55

Hypertension and Stress As an example of the benefits of healthy sex von Urban mentions the following case. At a neuro-psychiatric conference he presented a difficult case cured with his Perfect Sex method within 8 weeks of high blood pressure, stomach ulcers and inability to work. A leading expert doubted that a change in sexual practices could have normalized high blood pressure. Von Urban asked this expert to send him his most difficult and hopeless case. Ten days after seeing the patient his blood pressure was almost normal. It should be noted that in contrast Wilhelm Reich, who advocated orgasmic sex for release of excess bio-energy, died of heart attack probably associated with high blood pressure, and his wife suffered from severe hypertension. Von Urban also presents the case of a young woman who had been diagnosed as schizophrenic, temporarily institutionalized and treated with electric shock. A few weeks after changing sexual habits she became and remained completely ‘normal’. Considering the vast amount of hypertension, mental and other stress-related conditions in our society, and that von Urban demonstrated the effectiveness of his method only 60 years ago, I do not expect to see it discussed in medical journals or the mass-media any time soon. I do not want to imply that sexual energy is the only factor causing or curing the discussed diseases, rather there are usually several factors coming together, and if one of them is changed from being detrimental to being beneficial, then this can be sufficient to overcome the health problem. Furthermore, most of those with a chronic disease, and especially cancer, are emotionally rather fragile, and benefit greatly from a close-bonding loving relationship to elevate oxytocin. This is also beneficial with heart disease and mental-emotional conditions, such as depression and addictions. Karma - 56
  • 55. High levels of testosterone are a negative factor with prostate cancer, and high estrogen levels with most breast cancers. But when we are in love (or create a feeling of love with increased oxytocin), levels of sex hormone in both genders become more like each other. Males become less aggressive, gentler and more spiritual, while females produce more testosterone to make them bolder and balance excessive estrogen levels. For the Lack of a Cuddle Anorexia nervosa develops mainly in teenage girls. This immediately suggests a connection to sexuality. I was intrigued to read that one of the more successful methods recommends, in addition to other measures, using a warm vest to provide a feeling of being warm and protected. That reminds me of an experiment with monkeys. Immediately after birth they were separated from their mothers and raised with two substitute ‘mothers’. One was a wire structure containing a food bottle with nipple and the other was with terry cloth over the wire, heated by an electric bulb inside. The young monkeys adopted the cloth-covered structure as their mother substitute and were distressed when it was temporarily removed. The bottle structure was just a feeding machine to them. All these monkeys became disturbed emotionally as well as in their behaviour when growing up, and they were unable to perform the sexual act successfully on maturity. Touch was emotionally more important to them than food. That is exactly what happens with anorexia nervosa. From this it is easy to see that the most curative method for these teenagers, as well as for others with emotional problems would be prolonged skin contact in a safe environment to raise oxytocins levels, and especially non-sexual, affectionate contact with someone of the opposite sex, as a bio-energetic boost. It was often worse for human infants who were raised in church or government institutions without even a cloth mother substitute. One of the worst aspects for a baby is the feeling of not being wanted, and especially if it experiences hostility from one or both parents. A difficult birth with forceps and glaring lights is traumatic, also surgery and a negative attitude of some of those present at birth. Even worse is the prolonged removal of the baby from the mother in most hospitals. All of these generate stress hormones while more than anything else babies need persistent contact with the mother or a suitable human substitute to generate soothing and bonding oxytocin. Presently there is a rapidly rising incidence of self-harm reported to affect up to 20% of teenagers, and even more teenage girls. While teenage boys tend to release their internal tensions through outward aggression and harming others, girls tend to harm themselves. Princess Diana admitted to it. This is not really new and was reported in former centuries and millennia. In the 19th century girls used to stick Karma - 57
  • 56. needles into their skin, and were medically known as the ‘needle girls’. At present cutting with razor blades is more fashionable. The reported reason for doing this is unbearable emotional tension. It provides essential stress relief, and some girls say it keeps them alive so that they do not need to suicide. This tension starts with puberty and abates towards the end of teenage years. Selfharm is also related to eating disorders and is prevalent in detention facilities and nunneries. We can now understand this behaviour according to von Urban’s model of a stressbased bio-energetically charged skin. When in pain, bio-energy is released together with feeling energy, and this pain-induced release of bio-energy is what keeps these girls sane. Also the opposite can be observed, pain due to various known or unknown causes can be relieved by appropriate skin contact. There is, of course, the same solution as mentioned above for anorexia, mental problems and hypertension: providing prolonged skin contact in a safe environment with someone of the opposite sex.A special time of the week may be selected where the whole family joins in gently massaging each other, especially the back, neck, shoulders and the feet. Also holding hands provides good energy exchange, especially between the right hand of a male and the left hand of a female. Reducing Stress and Tension Bio-energetic static and emotional-energetic blockages are probably major factors not only with hypertension, mental problems and other stress-related conditions, but also in the present epidemic of hip, knee and lower back problems, leg cramps as well as gynecological and other disorders in the pelvic area, including impotence and frigidity. Persistent bioenergetic static and its associated emotional blockages tend to cause muscle tension with permanently reduced blood, lymph and nerve supply to these areas, and makes them susceptible to infections, arthritis and other health deterioration. According to the findings of von Urban and the experiences of couples practicing Karezza, the easiest way of reducing such persistent tensions is prolonged quiet skin and possibly sexual contact with a partner of the opposite sex, basically as a long period of relaxation or meditation. While superficial tensions may be eliminated in one session, deeper muscle tensions are caused by a life-time of sexual frustration, and may require many repetitions of lying together while using guided imagery and pleasurable feelings to melt the corresponding emotional blockages. Emotionally deprived children grow into adults with antisocial or asocial tendencies. On one side of the scale this manifests as violent, criminal and destructive behaviour, and on the other as shyness, lack of confidence, selfdestructive behaviour, and depression. Often our sexual problems start already right after birth if we are bottle-fed instead of enjoying mother’s breast, or worse, if we are separated Karma - 58
  • 57. from our mother for a prolonged period. This tends to make it difficult later to bond to a partner. Even with relatively good parenting our evolving sexuality causes enormous tensions and stresses while growing up in our society and most adults will experience emotional and health problems due our general ignorance in regard to balancing our sexual energy. Compare our Western upbringing to the way von Urban describes how children were raised in some more advanced native societies. He writes “The Melanesians are certain that children whose sex impulses are not correctly developed can never become experts in love.” Sexual training is considered to be most important for the future happiness in the love life of their children. They encourage children to pay attention to their sexual feelings. There is a lot of touching, caressing and skin contact between adults and children in native societies. The chief of an African tribe expressed his astonishment to an early explorer that Westerners do not provide sexual training to their children. He believed this to be more important than any other kind of training, as healthy sexual development not only provides bliss for the individual, but also a harmonious family and tribal life. Also “In some tribes of Central Africa masturbation is taught by an elder of the opposite sex”, and to abate sexual tension “old women quietly lay their hands on the testicles of little boys, and old men on the vulvas of little girls, holding them thus for some time.” Professor Malinowsky noted that such practices were more satisfactory than masturbation. Why? Because masturbation, while providing local relaxation, increases overall bodily tension, while skin contact with the opposite sex reduces it. Therefore prolonged non-sexual skin contact between boys and girls, or child and parent of the opposite sex, would probably be a good way to improve hyperactivity, attention deficit, shyness, autism, violence, self-harm and related problem. There seems to be a complete absence of sexual and stress related conditions in native societies described by Malinowsky. In our society children’s sexuality is so misdirected that sexual violence, rape and many forms of sexual inhibition, frustration and abuse, emotional problems, mental diseases and other stress-related conditions are a frequent outcome in adult life. This shows that we could learn much from native practices. As these native people could observe all varieties of loving sexual activity, it had no unhealthy fascination or obsession for them, as it has for most people in our society. Consequently, abuse of children, rape, or other forms of violence, were unknown to them. Sexual activity to them was as natural and open as eating to us. No doubt, if eating would be regarded as ‘dirty’ and restricted in the same way as sexuality, and children and others would not be allowed to see us eat, most of us would have neuroses associated with eating. According to Malinowsky such open native sexual education does not necessarily result in early pregnancies. Properly taught Karezza would not only lead to a healthier society at all levels, but would also curb the unsustainable overpopulation of our planet. What many singles and especially women miss even more than sex is touching and hugging. Some try to satisfy this need with regular massage therapy. However, there may be a simple solution, just form a local “hug club”. Discretely spread the word and you may be surprised by the amount of interest in hugging ‘out there’. You may also form or join a healing group where hugging may be practiced together with other self-healing techniques.

  • 58. - Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar HEALTH FOODS AND NUTRIENTS This chapter provides information about special foods and vital nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes, as well as basic remedies including herbs and homeopathics. The more we use special health Foods, and adopt a high-quality diet, the less we need to know about individual nutrients, and vice versa. Unfortunately, most individuals presently have a less than ideal diet, and some knowledge about nutrients can help to avoid or correct imbalances and deficiencies. Furthermore, many nutrients are now used in very high doses, essentially as remedies, to treat various diseases. When used in this way, detailed knowledge is important to achieve the desired effect without exposing yourself to unnecessary danger. While there are dangers with what I call “self-healing”, and health authorities call “self-medication”, these are infinitely smaller than those posed by prescription drugs. I believe there is less long-term harm in using a nutrient incorrectly than a prescription drug correctly. It is rare to encounter serious health damage from using nutrients, even in very high doses, while medical drugs are stated to be the third-highest cause of death in the US. Nevertheless, I do not endorse the use of high-potency nutrients without a proper understanding of any benefits and dangers, and I do not endorse high-potency supplements as a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, which is the way that they are commonly used. My main emphasis is on a healthy lifestyle, which in most cases will remove the need for high-potency supplements, but if you feel that you do need some, then you will find suitable information in this chapter. Learn about the health-giving properties of pollen, purple foods, sprouted seeds and others Mung beans may retain hard pieces after soaking that can damage the teeth. This can be avoided by pouring some boiling water over the seeds initially and letting them soak in the cooling water. Peas and lentils, on the other hand, like it cool and sprouts easily deteriorate in hot conditions. Sprouted seeds may be refrigerated in a closed container after they have reached the desired length. Individuals who are rather sensitive to fungi and microbes may wash sprouted seeds in diluted hydrogen peroxide shortly before use. If you have difficulty chewing or if sprouted seeds cause much wind, try using them as part of your fresh juice. If seeds do not sprout well, the cause may be as follows: Red Beet or beetroot is the best purple vegetable. The purple pigment has been shown to increase and normalize cell respiration the oxygen-based energy production within cells. Thus beetroot is one of the key foods in preventing as well as curing cancer. It is equally important in the treatment of other degenerative diseases such as chronic fatigue syndrome that are all characterized by reduced cell respiration. The active ingredient in red beet is called betacyanin with two carbonyl groups (C=0-). When cellular energy is produced through the oxidation of nutrients, Karma - 60
  • 59. electrons and hydrogen ions are transferred onto the inhaled oxygen to produce water and energy. In cancer cells and with chronic fatigue the respiratory enzymes that accomplish this transfer have been diminished or destroyed. The color pigment in beetroot (and other purple food) strongly binds electrons and hydrogen and with this can reactivate the production of cellular oxidative energy. Seeger and others have shown that the respiration of cancer cells can be completely normalized by a combination of red beet, raw fermented food and vitamin C. The multiplication of cancer cells will thus stop, and tumors become non-virulent. Clinical tests using red beet with cancer patients revealed that often tumors regressed and disappeared. In the original cancer therapy with red beet 1 Kg have been used daily. However, if used together with other purple food less may be needed, as for instance when combining red beet with dark grapes or dark grape juice. Use plenty of red beets grated in salads, as juice and cooked; also the residue from juicing may be cooked. Occasionally a small beet may leave an acrid aftertaste. Taste suspect beets before making salads or juice; cooking them is fine, and beet tops may be cooked also. Tinned beet has lost most of its pigments and is of little value. Red beet may be available only seasonally. You may store a larger quantity in moist sand. Keep the tops exposed in a cool, shaded place with just enough moisture to prevent drying out. After a good root system has developed you may also let them continue to grow in a sandy and well-drained soil, neither too wet nor too dry to avoid rotting or mold development; check frequently. Alternatively, you may stock up on beetroot juice by freezing it. Raw Egg Fresh raw eggs, genuinely free-range from hens fed on greens and grains, have health-giving and healing properties. However, egg allergy is widespread and with habitual consumption eggs should be tested. Raw egg yolk does not raise the cholesterol level; it is high in sulfur compounds that strengthen connective tissue and detoxify the liver. Fresh raw egg yolk has long been known to enhance or rejuvenate sexual energies that are required not only for having sex, but more importantly for creative activity in general and for physical fitness. Very fresh, raw, beaten egg white, on the other hand, has germicidal properties. The cell walls of lymphocytes (white blood cells) become more rigid with aging, AIDS and viral infections, mainly due to increased cholesterol levels in cell walls. Lipids extracted from raw egg yolk have been reported to normalize rigid cell walls and fully restore immune functions. This has led to great improvements in AIDS patients treated with egg-yolk lipids. LAXATIVE FOODS For the improvement or maintenance of good health it is desirable to have two or three bowel movements daily. A better lifestyle and raw food will do much to achieve this goal, but initially it may be necessary to include some laxative foods as well. BRAN A mild laxative; however, it accentuates mineral deficiencies. Wheat bran is not suitable for anyone who is sensitive to wheat. I do not recommend wheat bran but you may experiment with rice bran, provided that you take trace mineral supplements with bran-free meals. WATER - Drinking a large quantity of water within a short period will cause part of it to rinse the bowels. Take 2 large glassfuls or more of (warm) water before breakfast.

  • 60. - Param Pujya Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar The new wonder formula in performance sheets is meditation, which has skillfully woven its way into the corporate world The whole purpose of meditation is to make you aware of your kingdom, to make you aware of your highest potential,” writes Osho in Contemplation Before Sleep. The corporate world is fast waking up to the concept of connecting within as the best means to meet external targets. You do not need emotional intelligence or psychometric tests to assess your potential. Just quieten the chatterbox mind. Listen to yourself. And you have an instant antidote to all problems. Param Ajjan, a corporate trainer and CEO of The Matrix, a training organization, says: “I include meditation in all my workshops on emotional intelligence. I have observed remarkable results. The work environment becomes charged and relaxed.” Rishi Prabhakar, founder of the Bangalore-based Rishi Samskruti Vidya Kendra and Siddha Samadhi Yoga (SSY), propagates ‘true leadership’ and ‘automatic management’ through SSY. “The thinking process exhausts the body. The level of rest gained during SSY is about three to four times more than that acquired in a state of deep sleep. It enhances creativity and intelligence.” In a study, the practice of SSY recorded a marked improvement in team spirit, productivity, sales and profits. In some cases there was a phenomenal improvement of 600 per cent in sales and 250 per cent in profits—all in a short duration. Today, General Motors incorporates SSY in its basic training programme for recruits. Some of the organizations that have benefited through this meditative technique include Bhandari Industries, Kirloskar Oil Engines, Thermax, Otis Elevators and Sangola Spinning Mills. Binay Kumar, director (personnel), National Hydroelectric Power Corporation (NHPC), speaks about the positive influence of meditation: “At Corporation Grid of India, I designed a training programme for the CMD in which he would start the day with yoga and meditation. This proved to be an effective way of managing stress.” His viewpoint is shared by Vinod Gulati, IT and HRD head at NHPC: “Our target is to provide power to everybody by 2020. To face this challenge, we need to be properly equipped. Two years back we had introductory sessions of Sri Sri Ravishankar’s Art of Living and noticed a remarkable difference in the output.” Now all training programmes begin with meditation and yoga. At the Steel Authority of India (SAIL), meditation and yoga have found success in its regional training centres. Vipassana, a 10-day rigorous residential meditation course for business executives, was also held at its Ikatgiri centre recently. The grand success of this course promises more in the offing. R.V. Shahi, secretary in the Ministry of Power, incorporated meditation and yoga in the 10-day capsule course for the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) during his tenure, a decade back. This course saw its centennial celebration at the Power Management Institute, NTPC, Noida. Going by the popularity of meditation in the corporate sector, Fore School of Management in Delhi conducts Vedic management workshops before its MBA programme. Dr Rajni Arya, director of Amity Institute of Behavioral and Allied Sciences, feels: “Few management schools have been able to strike the right balance between modern management techniques and insight from Shastras.” At Amity, they have been able to straddle the divide by introducing certain modules in their curriculum, which are drawn from Indian scriptures and their practical applications. “It is our experience that meditation helps students de-stress, improves their concentration and focus, and helps them to be in harmony with themselves,” Dr Arya adds. During meditation they teach students to connect with the core of their being, which helps them get in touch with the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of their actions. Dr Arya says: “The students then feel ‘I am you and you are me’, that it is okay to have problems, biases and negative emotions so long as one is willing to work on them and learn ways to manage them. Since our profession is a part of our lives, values at the place of work cannot be fragmented from perennial values, which are necessary for the unfolding of the individual’s personality.” This ensures that the future managers coming out of their institute have a vision based on value-based management (dharma), valuebased work (karma) and ultimately a value-based life (samyama). He says: “Our conviction is that if our students are empowered it will automatically find manifestations in their organization and will lead to an awakened society.” For More help call Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar @ 408 829 7780.
