  3. 3. The incidence of depression has been growing at a phenomenal rate but the positive factor here is that people no longer fell stigmatized by acknowledging that they have a problem. The awareness has set in and once this hurdle is crossed, treatingdepression is possible. The effects of depression can be traumatizing and the individual suffering from it feels emotionally, physically and even spiritually assaulted. It is an illness and one that has to be treated before it becomes too late. Depression can break a weak willed person. When we talk of remedies for depression, you would like to deal with natural remedies and the purpose of this exercise is just to do that. Depression can be caused by many factors both genetic and biological. Individuals may have a genetic makeup that makes them prone to depression or stressful events like the loss of a close one could also be a cause. In addition it is believed that it is also caused by biological factors. We have what are called neurotransmitters in your brains, which are responsible for sense of well being that we feel. Serotonin and other chemicals like dopamine, acetylcholine, norepinephrine largely act as an anti depressants and tranquilizers. Depletion in the levels of these neurotransmitters could lead to depression. Anti depressants essentially enhance neuro transmission simultaneously increasing the levels of the neuro transmitters especially serotonin.. Medication coupled with natural remedies has been known to be very effective in curing depression. St.John’s wort extract is a herb which is highly rated as a natural anti depressant. In fact in ancient Greece, this plant was used as a tonic for the nerves. The elements present in this herb help to increase the levels of the important neuro transmitters and it has been found to be very effective in countering mild depression. In fact it helps individuals to sleep more soundly and improves memory. It has proved to be very significant in countering depression which is an offset of SAD (seasonal Affective Disorder).This usually occurs during the months when there is a decrease in the amount of available sunlight(during winter). In conjunction withlight therapy what it does is to increase the level of melatonin which is produced in the body thus helping to regulate the sleep wake cycle. Amino acid therapy is fast finding patrons. These basic building blocks of which proteins are made actually function as neurotransmitters. Tryptophan is one such neurotransmitter which relieves depression but the best part about tryptophan is that it is found naturally in foods that we normally eat. Whole grain cereals, vegetables, fruits and low fat dairy products are all natural sources of tryptophan. Tofu (high in tryptophan), most Soy products, sesame seeds, walnuts, peas, pumpkin seeds are some common sources of this wonder neurotransmitter. When eaten in combination with carbohydrates, the amount of tryptophan taken in is increased. Tryptophan is converted into serotonin (the feel good chemical) and this in turn to melatonin (which is required for good sleep). Kava is another natural remedy for depression and it has been used for hundreds of years by people living in the islands of the south pacific region. It is often referred to as “ the calming plant” and brings along with a feeling of well- being and contentment. Of course overuse of this herb can cause a rash to break out. Gingko biloba is another herb, which contributes to mental health. It is essentially an anti oxidant and is very popular to combat depression. For a long time, depression and nutritional imbalances have gone hand in hand.Adeficiency in certain vitamins or mineralscouldinhibittheproductionoftheneurochemicals - the good feel chemicals. B vitamins have always been in the news and Vitamin B6 is known to have assist enzymes to convert amino acids to serotonin and norepinephrine –
  4. 4. Karma 4 the good mood chemicals. So a deficiency of Vitamin B12 or folic acid can cause depression. It has also been found that a deficiency in magnesium can lead to nonspecific low mood levels. The point to be noted here is that improvement in the levels of serotonin can be set right by eating the right natural foods which contain the above elements. This in combination with other forms of therapy can alleviate depression. In fact ingestion of Vitamin C has been known to catalyze reactions, which lead to the production of serotonin. The traditional medicine of India -Ayurveda advocates yoga, massage and meditation, which increase “prana”or the energy of life. A concoction of Ashwagandha and Brahmi powder steeped in water for 10 minutes and drunk twice or thrice a day is said to cure depression. Another natural remedy for depression, which is widely advocated, is drinking a “kasahayam” or tea made from the (Indian basil) tulsi and sage. Massaging the body and head with herbal oil and then having a hot water bath does wonders for the body and mind. These have been practiced from time immemorial in India and are very popular forms of treatment. In fact there are actually parlors which offer you this kind of massage. Yoga exercises helps in the increase of circulation of oxygen in the system, helps the mind to relax, stretches the muscles and helps to restore the neurochemicals. Deep breathing exercises or “pranayama” help the body and mind to relax. By focusing on calm and peaceful things, the mind tends to counter the negative energy, which is present. Listening to music, playing your favorite songs, doing the things you like-- all help to nullify depression. Going out with friends, visiting, going to places you like - in short doing things that break away from the routine and mundane can help to alleviate depression. If it is possible try and discuss your problem with a friend or a good counselor. When things are verbally expressed, the intensity of negative force is drastically reduced and they may come up with certain ideas, which helps you to deal with depression. Writing down your actual thoughts and feelings also helps because by doing so, you are able to give vent to whatever is troubling you. This does relieve you to a great extent. Diversify your activities and work till you are tired. This gives the brain the necessary impetus to focus on anything but the problem causing depression. Aromatherapy has gained popularity of late because of its ability to help the body to relax and revive the nervous system. Inhalation of some herbal oils like rose, jasmine, lime, and grapefruit is a natural remedy for depression. Acupuncture is said to be a great mood enhancer. Eight –10 weeks of acupuncture treatment culminates in mood elevation, which is very similar to the elevation got by the use of anti depressants. Last but not least, prayer is said to have the power to heal. Religious practices and religious beliefs could help the person to cope with depression. All these natural remedies for depression may be sufficient by themselves if depression is not very severe, but in severe cases it needs to be combined with medication TO COME OUT OF ALL YOUR PROBLEMS AND TO LEAD & LIVE A HAPPY LIFE CALL SWAMIJI SIDDHAR @ TOLL FREE 1-888-808-1418.

  5. 5. What is Spiritual Healing and How to Use it in Your Life? The concept of spiritual healing has been around for thousands of years and has been mastered and practiced by spiritual healers all over the world. They use their knowledge to cure ailments from physical pain, like headaches, to emotional pain, such as depression. Spiritual healing is put aside by most modern day doctors who have left all their trust in pharmaceuticals to heal their patients for them. Spiritual healing takes a more direct approach to healing ailments. Spiritual healing can be helpful and successful if given the opportunity. The principle of this type of healing works like this: Spiritual healing refers to a number of alternative medicines and practices that focus on restoring health and balance in the mind, body, and spirit. Between cultures these healing techniques vary, but the desired result is the same, to create an inner connection and balance to the inner spiritual and divine. How to Heal Body Spiritually? The idea of knowing how to heal using the concept of spiritual healing techniques can seem a little taboo, but in reality it is one of the oldest forms of healing known to mankind. In nearly every case of spiritual healing ever documented, the healing is completed by channeling a healing energy from a spiritual source, usually a healer, to the person who needs to be healed. In the most ancient techniques the healer will know how to heal using hidden techniques and simply uses his hands to impart, or transfer, the energy needed to his patient to heal them spiritually. Spiritual Healing and Religion Thanks to the many evangelicals that exist, many people think of religion when considering spiritual healing. The truth is, these types of healing practices have little to do with religion and more to do with the balance of your spirit, mind, and body. Spiritual healing can be applied to any religion, or none, since the main proponents of the healing is done through non-physical means. In Hinduism, spiritual healing is an integral part of the natural remedies such as Ayruveda. Dhyana (meditation) is one of the ways to get salvation according to Hindu Scriptures. The concept of Chakras and Marmas have been wonderfully explained in holy texts of Ayurveda and Patanjali Yoga book. In addition, Ayurveda describes the whole new branch of medicine and treatment called Bhootvidya -the spiritual healing for those affected by evil spirit. Who can be Spiritually Healed? The concept of spiritual healing can be used by anyone willing to try it. It can be used for adults, children, babies, and even pets. There’s no prerequisite or special knowledge that you as the patient need to know or have. The only thing that is required from a person wanting to be spiritually healed is an open mind and willing spirit. If you have this the experience and chance of receiving a truly healing experience amplifies exponentially. What is Spiritual Healing Used For? This type of healing is highly controversial, but has stood the test of time for century after century. Spiritual healing has been utilized as far back as the ancient Chinese and ancient Egyptian cultures. Since its inception, it has been used to heal and treat a laundry list of ailments and injuries. Some of the most popular reasons to use this type of unconventional healing are to avoid the pills and medicines that most modern doctors are so quick to hand out.
  6. 6. Karma 6 Spiritual healing can be used to treat and lighten your physical and emotional loads of stress by using techniques like acupuncture, massages, and even directed meditation. This type of ancient healing can include herbs and natural plants to help ease the nerves and eliminate bodily toxins, which can take tons of weight off your spiritual well- being. It’s fully capable of renewing your mind, body, and soul, to its former glory. Some types of spiritual healing can also help improve blood circulation, stop insomnia, improve your sex life and organ functions, as well as provide a certain balance to the body that you may not have felt before you had spiritual treatments. Now that you know a lot more about spirituality and how it can be used in the healing process, you’re going to need to know how to find a reliable healer. Finding Spiritual Healing Finding a person that calls themselves a spiritual healer can be easy, but finding one that has a list of references and alternative medicine degrees can be harder to find. Since there are so many techniques in alternative medicine, most healers will specialize in a certain type of spiritual healing. If you are looking for spiritual healing, it is best to start at the home front. Ask your neighbors and friends that you know are interested in the same type of medicines. They may be the best way to get a quality reference for a great spiritual healer that you can depend and count on. Going to a random spiritual healer that you find not the internet or in the phone book should be the last resort. We all have to start somewhere when looking for spiritual healing; I suggest you start with talking to friends and neighbors when beginning your search for a healer. A spiritual healer will help you heal and give your mind, body, and spirit the ability to balance out and achieve a greater benefit from the healer him, or herself. What will the Healing Session be like? Most people who have never been to a spiritual healer have no idea what to expect while in the healing session. Some people report having a full body heating sensation, a cold to freezing sensation, and even others have reported a strong tingling throughout their body after a spiritual healing session. Overall, the vast majority of people feels relaxed and has a lasting sense of deep peace about them. Spiritual healing, like many medical procedures, doesn’t always work the first time you try it. It may take several sessions to achieve the desired effect, in most cases; it takes at least three session spread across at least a week to give the desired result. When should you get Spiritual Healing? Spiritual healing can become important when having emotional problems, depression, or even physical problems. Many people seek out a spiritual healer when they want to feel better about themselves without taking the vast expense of a psychiatrist. Spiritual healing can ease the mind and body, allowing for it heal faster and solve reoccurring problems that never tend to go away. Some people even treat warts with these sessions with great success. Spiritual healing is a great alternative and additional treatment to the treatments that are usually administered today.

  7. 7. Sex forHealth,RelationshipsandSpirituality Sex, or rather sexual energy, is a potent force in regard to our health, intimate relationships and spirituality, but the extent of this is rarely realized. Fortunately we can now understand much of the prevailing dynamics due to recent advances in the neurochemistry of the brain. The observed effects can partly be explained with biochemistry and partly with bioenergetics. THE NEUROCHEMISTRY OF SEX Orgasm is generally regarded as the ultimate goal of recreational sex. Wilhelm Reich was the first scientist to describe the nature and purpose of the orgasm as a discharge of excess bio- energy with the additional liberation of feeling energy, and he also recognized the negative consequences of blocked sexual energies. Unfortunately, in addition to exciting peaks, orgasms tend to produce powerful negative side-effects that are only now becoming better understood. This is due to predictable trends in hormonal activity which seem to be similar in all mammals to ensure certain evolutionary objectives, especially the wide mixing of gene pools and the safe raising of offspring. This is achieved with the following neurochemical changes. The main players are dopamine, the reward hormone; prolactin, the hormone of satiation; oxytocin, the cuddle hormone, and levels of androgen receptors, which all powerfully affect our mood, our desire for intimacy, our perception of our mate, as well as our susceptibility to addictive activities and substances. These hormones can also have different but generally related functions. Additionally the stimulant phenylethylamine (PEA) is involved, which is also present in cocoa and chocolate and elevates energy, mood and attention. PEA is produced in greater amounts when one is in love; conversely a deficiency (common in manic- depressives) causes unhappy feelings. When we first fall in love we become bonded by rising PEA, oxytocin and dopamine levels When we are sexually aroused by close contact our dopamine level rises further and at the time of orgasm we have a dopamine brainstorm which one researcher compared to the effects of heroin on the brain. Dopamine is active in all addictions, even in people who have forgotten what sex is. Most of this activity is in the limbic system, the oldest part of the brain. After orgasm dopamine levels fall sharply with the usual withdrawal symptoms. This reaction tends to be immediate in males and delayed in females. Also prolactin levels rise, and androgen receptors fall after orgasm. Low testosterone is associated with irritability and anger. In sexually-satiated rats it has been shown that serotonin and endorphin levels also rise, and this also decreases dopamine and raises prolactin levels. Oxytocin levels fall after conventional orgasm but remaining in close contact may help to counter this drop and sustain oxytocin levels. Behavioral changes from this disturbed hormone equilibrium have been noticed for up to two weeks. During this time we may be more irritable, dissatisfied, anxious or depressed, and instead of seeing the good side of our mate, we are now painfully aware of his or her shortcomings. This is exactly the same process and length of time prolactin levels need to recover during withdrawal from cocaine.
  8. 8. Karma 8 Initially, during the honeymoon period of our relationship, we remain strongly bonded by high oxytocin levels, and quickly overcome our hormonal blues by having more sex. Initially sex stimulates us to crave for more sex. This leads to rapid rises and falls in dopamine levels and corresponding rapid emotional fluctuations in our relationship. Later we become less and less interested in sex with our partner (perhaps because we subconsciously begin to associate him or her with the “lows” of the cycle, or perhaps because we grow tired of being used as a fix, and therefore feel less attraction), and now we try to prop up our dopamine level by becoming addicted to some kind of food or drug, or by becoming interested in a new sexual partner. Basically this type of behavior is the same for humans, primates, mammals and reptiles because it originates from the primitive part of our brain. Further evidence of a lasting post-orgasm hangover comes from sexually exhausted male rats. The number of androgen receptors in the hypothalamus declines, reducing the effectiveness of testosterone and changing sexual behavior. These changes last for about seven days, corresponding to a lack of libido of the rats. In addition to serving as a sexual brake, prolactin also affects our moods and behavior somewhat like a hormone of resignation. For example caged wild monkeys initially had high levels of the stress hormone cortisol but gradually prolactin levels rose as they became resigned to their fate. Prolactin levels were highest after seven months. With raised prolactin levels they do not mate, which looks like the same effect that we see in long-term relationships without close oxytocin-producing bonding. 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, 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 thatitcauses.Othercasualtiesareourhealthandwellbeing,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 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. 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. 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. 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.
  9. 9. Karma 9 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. Strengthening Sexual Energy The strength of our sexual energy is a function of our overall vitality or vital energy. Therefore, if our overall vitality is low, then we do not have much sexual energy available to circulate in the Microcosmic Orbit. Furthermore, by frequently drawing the energy up, it may initially deplete our available sexual energy. Apart from conserving energy through non-orgasmic intercourse, there are many techniques to strengthen these energies. One such method is the Inner Smile. In its simplest form we may just smile at people we meet, at a tree, a flower, a cloud or the sky or landscape. As a more deliberate exercise we may close the eyes, focus on the third eye point between the eyebrows and smile in succession at every major organ and gland in our body. Another important method is concentrating breath energy. This may be done with any organ in need of healing, but for this purpose we may breathe into the sex organs. Inhale deeply into the abdomen, and during a slow exhalation imagine the bio- energy in the inhaled air being compressed into the testicles or ovaries. Due to decades of sexual tensions most of us have permanently tense and weak muscles between the top of the pelvis and the knees. This is like an old battery that cannot hold much charge. Use massage, vibrating, shaking, relaxation exercise and guided imagery to soften their contracted core. Also do pelvic floor exercises. In addition to rhythmically contracting and relaxing the whole pelvic floor, selectively push forward to contract only the front part. In men this gives an impulse to the penis, woman may also rhythmically contract the vaginal opening. This forward pressure is used to prevent loss of energy when near orgasm, while selective contraction around the anus and tailbone helps to lead the energy up the spine. Other common techniques are tai-chi and chi-gong. In these practices we imagine and feel energy being drawn into our body from our environment. Walking barefoot on grass or moist soil or swimming in the sea enhances and cleanses our aura. The north-pointing pole of a magnet, like the right palm, has an energy that is similar to the yang or male sexual energy, while the energy of the south-pointing pole or the left palm is similar to the yin or female sexual energy. In Tao philosophy the heavenly or spiritual energies entering through the top of the head are male or yang, while the earth energies are female or yin. Generally female energies are soothing and relaxing, and male energies stimulating and activating. Food for Sex We cannot have strong sexual energy if we are malnourished. Our life force from which we generate sexual energy is similar to the bio-energy in raw food. Therefore, raw food has a much stronger vitalising effect than cooked food. High-quality proteins are part of the seminal fluid and a high protein diet is sexually stimulating. In our culture meat is preferred while in the Orient chickpeas are used to improve sexual performance. The highest reputation has free-range raw fertilised egg yolk. It supplies sulphur compounds that are also high in the semen. However, even more effective than egg yolk is raw minced meat. The seminal fluid is also 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 with frequent loss of seminal fluid. Fish oils are also required for natural vaginal lubrication. The body forms nitric oxide from the amino acid arginine as a signal for the blood vessels of the penis to relax. This is necessary so that the penis can fill with blood and have an erection. Also magnesium supplements help to relax. Stress, on the other hand, or being emotionally uptight, prevents this necessary relaxation and, with this, an erection. Various herbs and alkaloids have traditionally been used to improve various sexual functions. Commonly used for improving and balancing the endocrine system in general and sexual hormones in particular is Maca (botanical name Lepidium meyenii). It appears to be more effective than Wild Yam and is especially helpful with age-related sexual problems. Also Tribulus terrestris is frequently used to improve sexual functions.

  11. 11. His Holiness Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar Preparation: A day chosen for making love should be filled with mutual kindness and affection. A period of love play with kissing and caressing should precede the sex act. Clitoral stimulation should be avoided. Woman who are used to clitoral orgasms should gradually, within a few weeks or months, be helped to refocus on vaginal stimulation. Comment: Von Urban believed that clitoral stimulation increases tension and makes deep relaxation of the whole body more difficult, and if one is used to clitoral stimulation it also may make it more difficult to achieve deep vaginal orgasm. The main goal for von Urban was not creating strong excitement and coming quickly to an orgasm but rather having a loving and strongly bonding connection with a partner. This does not mean that everyone needs to do it this way, von Urban just believed that it gave the best long-term results in regard to health and relationships. Position: The partners should adopt a position that allows them to remain fully relaxed during a long intercourse. Preferred is the Scissor Position: the woman lies on her back with knees drawn to the chest, while the male lies on his left side crosswise to her, so that his penis touches the entrance of the vagina. She now drops her legs and he places his right leg between her legs. With this, her left leg is between his legs while her right calf rests on his torso. Sides may be reversed. The man places the tip of the penis at the opened entrance of the vagina. Now all kissing and caressing should cease and both lovers focus on the energy streams between their sexual organs. It does not matter if the penis is soft or erect.After half an hour and full exchange of sexual energy the penis usually becomes erect and may now enter provided that the vagina is naturally moist. The use of oil is discouraged as it slows the exchange of energy (but this should not be a problem with long connections), and condoms must be avoided (except possibly temporarily for the purpose of ejaculation) because they block the exchange of bio-energy and lead to increased body tension. These recommendations are for couples in long-term relationships, for casual encounters use safe sex practices. Duration: After the man has learned to control his ejaculation, the 30 minutes outside the vagina are no longer required. For a long connection of one to three hours the couple remains mainly motionless or with slow movements. If ejaculation occurs prematurely, the soft penis should remain inside until at least half an hour since entering. If unwanted pregnancy needs to be avoided then withdraw shortly for ejaculation, urination and washing, and then connect again the penis to the inner lips. Concentration: During the whole sex act from preparation to finish the couple should focus on each other and what they are doing, become aware of the sensations where they are touching and the energy flows within and between them. Relaxation: It is essential to relax not only physically by choosing a suitable position, but also mentally and emotionally. Any kind of worry, guilt or preoccupation with work or family problems prevents relaxation and full exchange of bio-energy. Try to overcome such problems by dealing with them at other times, and use relaxation exercises and meditation to switch off when you want to. Another problem is that a woman may suppress her sex drive because of previous abuse or disappointment, and may resist subconsciously. This can usually be overcome with much tenderness, love and patience of her partner. Frequency: While this may depend mainly on the desire of the partners, von Urban observed that generally after a 30 minute intercourse with proper preparation couples are happy with a five day interval, after one hour intercourse with one-week, and after two hours with two-week intervals. He regards a sufficient interval as important to fully recharge the body batteries with bio-energy.

  14. 14. Karma 14 Diabetes is a medical disorder characterized by persistent variable high blood sugar levels, resulting from inadequate secretion of the hormone insulin, an inadequate response by the body’s cells to insulin, or a combination of the two factors. The most common forms of diabetes are type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes. Since insulin is the principal hormone that regulates uptake of glucose into most cells from the blood, deficiency of insulin or its receptors plays a central role in all forms of the disease. Diabetes poses a severe risk to health. It may lead to cardiovascular diseases, chronic renal failure, retinal damage, nerve damage, erectile dysfunction, and gangrene. Since ancient times, various herbs are being used to treat diabetes. Scientific investigations have confirmed the effectiveness of these herbs. Some of the major diabetes herbs are: Pterocarpus Marsupium Pterocarpus Marsupium, also known as Indian Kino, Malabar Kino, Pitasara, Venga, is a large deciduous tree, which commonly grows in western and southern parts of India and Sri Lanka. It has demonstrated ability to reduce the absorption of glucose from the gastrointestinal tract. It is also known to improve insulin and pro-insulin levels. Bitter Melon (Momordica charantia) Bitter melon, also known as balsam pear, bitter gourd, bitter cucumber, karela, and charantin, is cultivated widely in Asia, East Africa and South America. It has been extensively used as a folk medicine for treatment of diabetes. Several compounds contained in bitter melon are known to account for its ability to lower the levels of sugar in the blood. Gymnema Sylvestre Gymnema sylvestre, also known as Gurmar, Meshasringi and Cherukurinja, is popular as “sugar destroyer”. The leaves of the plant are dried and pounded together with coriander fruit, and then the juice is extracted to be given orally for remedying diabetes. In India, the herb is primarily being used to treat type II diabetes. It is also being found in over-the-counter weight loss products and blood sugar balancing formulas. Onion & Garlic ( Allium Cepa & Allium Sativum) Onion and garlic have long been used by herbal practitioners to treat diabetes. Experimental and clinical evidence suggests ample on the anti-diabetic properties of onion and garlic. Garlic has an additional benefit i.e. it has positive cardiovascular effects. It is known to lower lipid levels and inhibit platelet aggregation. Liberal use of onion is recommended for diabetic patients, while garlic is to be taken in moderate amounts. Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) Fenugreek is a crop plant that is grown as a pot herb. The habitat range of the plant extends from eastern Mediterranean area to China. Fenugreek is used as both an herb and a spice (seed). Pre-clinical and clinical studies on the herb have indicated its anti-diabetic properties. The fiber-rich fraction of fenugreek seeds can help in lowering blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. Blueberry (Vaccinium Myrtillus) Blueberries are a natural remedy for regulating the blood sugar levels, whenever they are slightly elevated. Researches on blueberries have come up with impressive results. They contain an active ingredient with an extraordinary ability to get rid of excessive sugar in the blood. They also work as a good astringent and help to relieve inflammation of the kidney, bladder and prostate. Asian Ginseng Asian ginseng is commonly used by the traditional practitioners of Chinese medicine, to treat diabetes. The herb has shown good results in enhancing the release of insulin from the pancreas and increasing the number of insulin receptors. The herb has a direct effect on lowering blood sugar levels. Asian ginseng also helps in elevating mood and improves psycho-physiological performance. Ginkgo Biloba Ginkgo biloba has also been used in the traditional Chinese medicine practice for the treatment of diabetes. This herbal medicine, which is now found over around the world, is extracted from the fan-shaped leaves of the ancient ginkgo biloba tree. The extract may help in the prevention and treatment of early- stage diabetic neuropathy. It also improves the blood flow in the peripheral tissues of the nerves in the arms, legs, hands, and feet.
  15. 15. H.H Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar Astrology and Karma From the beginning of mankind people have followed the movements of planets and have derived certain patters in them . The sages and the rishis of the Vedic era have associated Astrology with Karma. In the opening verse of the 5,000 year old Vedic text, Brihat Parasara Hora Shastras, the ancient Sage, Maharishi Parashara, tells us that:- “The Unborn Lord has incarnated as the nine planets, the Nava Grahas, to bestow on the living beings the result due to their karmas. He assumes the auspicious form of the Grahas (planets) to destroy the demons and to sustain the divine beings.” The great Sage then goes on to describe to us the eternal science of astrology and effect of the planets on the destiny of the incarnating soul. This work is said to be the fountain head of Vedic astrology. It is the bible of this ancient subject and is an indispensable study for both student and practitioner. It would take a lifetime of dedication to master the astrological rules outlined in this great work, and indeed, it is doubtful if one would ever master it, for the true mastery of astrology can only be accomplished by one who has transcended the three gunas, the ego, and the limitation of human thought processes. The entire subject of astrology is a description of our karmic destiny and the vicissitudes of our temporal existence in this world. If we are not firmly anchored in the stability of divine truth, then we are subject to the fluctuations and fickleness of our own minds. Astrological principles tell us that our moment of birth defines our temporal experience in this world according to the temporal disposition of the planets at birth. The planets operate as guiding impulses from the archetypal world of the Self and they represent our samskars, the mental impressions created from our own past actions. They indicate our talents, good fortunes, state of health and disease, as well as the traumas we are destined to experience. A well-trained Atharva Vedic astrologer like Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar who is also an authority of Vedic Astrology in USA is able to determine the timing of these influences in the natal chart and early in the course of study, a student must master an understanding of lordships before he/she can proceed with chart analysis. Planets have their eternal significations and their temporal significations and they deliver their karmas to the native according to these significations. Karma is the sum total of one’s physical, mental and spiritual functions. The world goes on because there is a role of free will assigned to human beings. Where does then astrology fit in, deal as it does with predestination? Is there a conflict between belief in astrology and in free will? How can scriptures lay emphasis on both if they are mutually conflicting? Astrology is based on the relationship of cause and effect. If there is an effect, there must be a cause preceding it. Thus, if an event good or bad happens today, there must be a cause for it, whether or not that cause is appreciable. Certain functions or Karmas produce an immediate result. Still others obtain fruition after a longer time period. Still others may take several years or decades (or even longer) to materialize. If one believes in the law of cause and effect, then the ambience of one’s birth and the subsequent opportunities or their lack cannot be a matter of mere chance. This takes us to a belief in birth and rebirth. Karmas done in one birth must manifest sometime in a later birth. The past karmas produce limitations for us because they yield certain results, which influence our future karmas. We do have a free will, but within the limitations prescribed by the results of our past actions. Karmas in fact manufacture destiny. An Atharva Vedic astrologer can point out which of the results from the past karmas can be overcome, and which cannot be overcome and, therefore, have to be suffered. A karma done is like a missile fired; it may or may not be neutralized by a counter-missile, depending upon the relative strength of the two. Why should one follow astrology? Astrologers have observed the planets movements and documented what effect those movements seem to have on humanity. They have discovered patterns. They have also found that as the planets line up in mathematical angles to one another, that too seems to consistently create certain predictable cause and effect scenarios. For someone to use the planets to predict the future is a lot like saying, that when the next full moon comes quite a few women will start menstruating. Why? Don’t know, but it’s true. Will every single woman who isn’t pregnant start to menstruate? Of course not. Will every single pregnant woman deliver their baby on that moon? Of course not. But it’s a reasonably accurate prediction to say that more women then usual will deliver babies and more women then usual will start menstruating. The art of astrology is a bit scientific observation and a bit psychic premonition. Of all the events that could be predicted, which one will hold true for the most people? We think of each planet as a different zodiac clock in the heavens. Each one has its own pace and it’s own season. Each one keeps time with a different zodiac season of the universe. Just like the sun and moon each have completely different seasons and completely different effects at different times. Watching the sun’s seasonal effects helps the farmer know when to plant his crops. Watching the moon’s cycles helps us in other areas. Astrology is taking all of the other planets’ seasons and cycles into account too. Imagine a giant cosmic clock with the moon as the seconds hand and the sun as the hours hand. Mercury would
  16. 16. Karma 16 be the minute hand. Add to that a hand for Venus, Mars, and the others. Each one a bit faster or slower then the others. Now telling time becomes a lot more complex. Time becomes bigger and more infinite. To take it one step further, as each of us is born we are handed our own personal zodiac clock that is the time by which we will live our lives. To the untrained eye it looks like my clock is hung upside down with the 6 at the top and the 12 at the bottom. Another person’s clock is to be hung with the 2 on top and the 8 on the bottom. So to be able to predict someone’s future using astrology, you have to know which angle they hang their clock and you have to compare them to all others who hang their clock that way. Sure enough there’s another pattern. This time it’s a predictable pattern of personality types, styles, and preferences. So as an astrologer you have to be able to know the typical person of that clock position and then read their multi-handed clock. Then with your very best psychic abilities and intuition, tell them what you believe will happen. Why does it work? Because it’s all patterns and cycles and its predictable and it happens the same way over and over. Maybe the planets were put in the positions they were put in just for the sole purpose of keeping time. Maybe they each have their own weird electrical gravitational pull. Maybe the human brain has some sort of odd multi-handed clock programmed into it, each one as different as a set of fingerprints? Maybe some cosmic creator decided that this would be their universal filing system to help them remember who’s doing what and where. Honestly, we don’t know why it works. We just know that it is patterns and wheels that can be predicted like the weather changes each season. Why should you bother to follow astrology? For the same reasons that we follow the weatherman’s report. We want to be forewarned of the possibility of storms and conflicts so we can protect ourselves accordingly. We want to be forewarned of sunny weather and positive aspects so that we can take advantage of the blessings about to be given to us. If I know that there’s a good chance it’s going to rain, then I dress appropriately. If I know that there’s a good chance that prosperity and abundance are coming my way, then I want to be well positioned and ready to receive my fair share. No weatherman is 100% correct and the same holds true for astrologers. Some are better at reading the signs then others. Some have more tools available for reading the skies then others. Both add valuable insight to the possibilities of how your day could unfold. It’s always good to be prepared. You don’t plan an outdoor wedding ceremony without looking at the typical weather forecasts for that area. You don’t plan an international vacation without looking at the political forecasts for that area. Think of astrology forecasts as one of many tools you have at your disposal for timing and plotting the course of your goals and dreams. Here are some myths about death and astrology. And please don’t go around using them as death indicators because they really won’t work and are just doing the rounds to fool you!!! People die on a transit. Many think that their ‘death’was arriving shortly in the form of a heavy transit from Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto. No one can die on transit. It has to be backed up in the progressions, firstly. And there may be ‘other’indicator present, such as an eclipse, plus a transit. These two or three pieces to the recipe for Death must be in place before something serious and major happens. Nothing major happens on a transit. Everything major occurs with progressions. Saturn is a death indicator. And no, Saturn isn’t the only death planet indicator. It is one of many, as you will see. Any and all the planets, including the Uranian ones, can be involved in a death. Transits in the 8th house are responsible for deaths. Just because you have a transit, progression or eclipse in your 8th house (known as the house of sex, taxes and death), does not mean you’re goanna check out either. Any house in the natal chart, any of the twelve, can be implicated and involved in your death. Hard aspects can lead to death. No it isn’t just hard aspects such as a conjunction, square, in conjunct or opposition that can put you into another dimension. So can soft aspects such as a sextile and trine, too. And there isn’t one aspect that is a ‘death aspect’, either. Eclipses really kill people. Eclipses are not going to kill you. In and of themselves, they never will. In order to die, you must have progressions set up. An eclipse might be a trigger for this to occur, but that is all. Lately, Chiron is getting a myth started on this asteroid that it’s Death’s Door. No, it isn’t. A Chiron transit can certainly bring transformation--but it doesn’t mean dying physically. The Moon’s Nodes are the major indicators of dying. Not really. They may or may not be implicated in a death. They are found to be ‘active’ in potential physical death only about 30% of the time--and that’s not a very high statistic to count on.

  18. 18. Karma 18 Aachi’s Corner- Chettinad Samayal/ Cooking - Ms Vishal Kalyani and ( Thanks to Ms SenthilKumar Chettinad is the homeland of the Nattukottai Chettiars (Nagarathar), a prosperous banking and business community, which migrated to Chettinad from Poompuhar several Hundred Years ago. Later during the late 19th Century and early 20th Century many of the members migrated to South and Southeast Asia, particularly Ceylon, Burma and Malaysia. Later during the Second World War they returned to Chettinad. The people of Chettinad speak Tamil. Today the Chettinad people, live in the USA, Singapore, Malaysia, among other places. Nagarathars are an exclusive clan, famous for their enterprise, hard work and contributions to society. They earned money by crossing the seas and their business acumen made them successful and prosperous. Chettinad houses and cuisine stand testimony to their ‘Solid’ character. Their social life is Unique. At the apex of the family household, is the “Aachi” the senior most female in the house. She controlled, if not every thing, the finances of the household. “Aachi” is now a household word all over TamilNadu to indicate a strong, dynamic and efficient female leader! Most of Nagarathars became prominent all over Inida by their sterling character and philanthrophy. The world renowned Hindu Spiritual leader, Guru Maharaj Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar is also from Chettinad, India. In the c21st centuru he is the first and the only Nagarathar who has established numerpus Hindu Temples, who has helped more than 3 million followers to come our of various difficulties in their life, who is a very strong and famous phionthrapist, humanitarian, and has pledged $108 Million US Dollors to the various spiritual casuses for the year 2013-2014 recentely Cooking.. Cooking is the process of preparing food with heat. Cooks select and combine ingredients using a wide range of tools and methods. In the process, the flavor, texture, appearance of the ingredients can change. Cooking techniques and ingredients vary widely across the world. In this blog you can see my style of cooking with my aachi’s touch. You can see more tirunelveli style cooking and recipes. Enjoy!! Bon appetit!! Chettinad is famous for its delicious foods. That is how people get to know Chettinad. Chettinad food is less spicy, less oily and harmless to the stomach. Minimum quantity of oil, spice, tamarind and coconut is used in the real Chettinad food. But the food served in restaurants now is vice versa. With a standard full meal or in marriage lunch boiled rice, cooked dhal, drumstick sambar, ghee for flavouring rice, kootu, poriyal, masiyal, pachchadi, masala, kara kuzhambu, thaneer kuzhambu, soup, curd, appalam, variety of pickles, and desserts like payasam and Ice cream are served. The “kara kozhambu” or “Pakkoda Kuzhambu”is widely regarded as the best tasting Chettinad Side Dish. The word Chettinad, reminds the numerous mouth watering delicacies that have transcended the boundaries of Tamil Nadu to carve a worldwide following. Generally less garnished with spices, the typical menu resembles the aristocratic way of life of the Chettinad people. As Chettiars had business contacts throughout the world from time immemorial their cuisine is famous for its use of a variety of spices used in preparing mainly non-vegetarian food. The dishes are hot and spicy with fresh ground masalas. They also make a lot of sun dried salted vegetables called vatthals, during the season and use them in the off season, reflecting the dry environment of the region and economic nature. The meat is restricted ot fish, prawn, lobster, crab, chicken and mutton. Chettiars do not eat beef and pork. Most of the dishes are eaten with rice and rice based accompaniments such as idlis, dosais, appams, idiyappams and adais. The Chettinad people through their mercantile contacts with Burma, learnt to prepare a type of rice pudding made with sticky red rice calles the “Kavanarisi”. Breakfast or tiffin includes idly(steamed rice cakes), dosai (a pancake made from a batter of rice) and lentils crisp fried on a pan, vada (deep fried doughnuts made from a batter of lentils), pongal ( a mish mash of rice and lentils boiled together and seasoned with ghee, cashew nuts, pepper and cummin seed), uppuma (cooked semolina seasoned in oil with mustard, pepper, cummin seed and dry lentils.) There are several variations of the dishes mentioned above which are eaten with coconut chutney, sambar (seasoned lentil broth) and mulaga podi (a powdered mix of several dried lentils eaten with oil). Lunch or meals consists of cooked rice served with an array of vegetable dishes, sambar, chutneys, rasam ( a hot broth made with tamarind juice and pepper) and curd(yogurt). For a non-vegetarian lunch, curries or dishes cooked with mutton, chicken or fish is included. The meals is incomplete without crisp papads or appalam.

Chettinad Tomato Chutney Chettinad Tomato Chutney with Idli Today, I present an absolute winner of a recipe, Chettinad tomato chutney. Chutney aka Pachadi is a revered dish in our home and my blog is testimony to it. Chutney recipes are numerous with various permutations and combinations. I do not follow any particular chutney recipe as such when I venture out to make a pachadi. I just add a twist to an original chutney recipe by tweaking it and a new chutney flavor is born. I wanted to make an authentic Chettinad tomato chutney to go with idli for breakfast and went about searching through my large collection of hand written recipes for one. I found a couple of chettinad chutney recipes but was not sure how authentic they were but settled for this particular chutney recipe as I liked the list of ingredients that went into its making. I’m glad I made it. Its the coconut milk which elevates the flavor of the tomato chutney. Spicy with slight tang and sweet notes, Chettinad tomato chutney is sensational and a keeper. Tomato Chutney with Idli Chettinad Tomato Chutney Recipe Prep time: 5 min : Cook time: 15 min : Yield: 4 : Main Ingredients: tomato Ingredients Onion - 1, finely sliced Tomatoes - 2 large, sliced Chana dal - 1 1/2 tbsps (Bengal gram/senaga pappu) :Dry red chilies - 2 :Green chilies - 1 Ginger - 1/2 “ finely minced ; Coconut milk - 3-4 tbsps : Salt to taste : Cooking oil - 1/2 tbsp For tempering/poppu/tadka: Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp : Red chilies - 2 : Curry leaves - a sprig Asafoetida - pinch Method 1. Heat oil in a vessel. Once the oil is hot, reduce flame, add chana dal, red chilies and green chili and saute till the dal turns light brown. Remove the dal, green chili and red chilies from oil and keep aside to cool. In the same oil, add the onions and ginger and saute till transparent, approx 3-4 mts. Add the tomatoes and saute for 9-10 mts on low to medium flame. Turn off heat and cool. 2. Blend the cooled ingredients (dals, chilies, tomatoes and onions) along with salt and coconut milk to a fine paste. Remove onto a serving bowl. Heat a tsp of oil in a small pan, add the mustard seeds and allow them to splutter. Add the curry leaves, red chilies and asafoetida and turn off heat. 3. Pour this tempering over the chutney and serve with idli or dosa. Made Chettinad Tomato Chutney with idli for our breakfast today. I try to prepare a new variety of chutney recipe for idli and dosa. Chettinad Vazhai Thandu Kootu Kootu or Kootucurry - a dal+vegetable side-dish served for Lunch as an accompaniment to fiery Kuzhambu (Gravy). The Southern states boast of regional specialties and this is the Chettinad style. Sometimes seasoned and sometimes not; it is tasty and healthy. Vazhaithandu is the tender stem of the Banana plant. It is a potassium rich food with a lot of health benefits. It has a high fibre content; a diuretic and a laxative. The Banana Stem is very fibrous and slicing it is very tricky and the key to enjoying the dish. Using a serrated knife to cut through makes the job easier. As there are many varieties of the fruit, so also with the stem. Amma says that “Kai Vazhai Thandu” is better as the Poriyal or Kootu will be white. Else it discolours and becomes ‘grey’ish. Mostly it is a gamble as you have to rely on your vendor! It is so lovely to watch her cut even sized match sticks from the round slices, making small turns every often to get uniform lengths. Slicing the Vazhaithandu is a trick, easily mastered.
  21. 21. First, remove the thick outer layers. Then slice across (thin and round slices) through the stem and you will find fibrous strands between the two parts. With a twirl of your index finger, remove the fibre (from both the slice and the stem) and discard. Continue slicing until you have 6 or 7 discs. Now pile up the discs and cut into matchsticks. Take about 1 cup of water in a bowl. Mix in 1 Tbsp of buttermilk. Drop the chopped stem (Thandu) into this bowl of water. It helps the stem remain white. Ingredients: Vazhaithandu - 1, small :Moong Dal - 1/4 cup :Green Chillies - 3 to 4 :Grated Coconut - 2 Tbsp :Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp :Salt to taste :Curry Leaves - 1 sprig :Ghee - 1 tsp (optional) Instructions: Take a heavy base pan or kadai and cook moong dal in sufficient water until it is half cooked.Chop the Vazhaithandu into matchsticks as explained above. (By the time you are through with chopping, the dal will be perfectly cooked.)Drain well and add it to the simmering dal along with slit green chillies. Simmer cook and add little water if the Kootu becomes dry. The consistency should be like a thick gravy.When the vegetable is soft, add salt, cumin seeds, a teaspoon of ghee, grated coconut and curry leaves (torn into pieces - to release the flavour).Mix well and take off heat. Serve Hot.Seasoning is optional. If you wish the curry leaves, cumin and 1 dry red chilli (broken into two) can be seasoned in ghee and added to the kootu just before taking off heat. Chettinad Chiina Urulai (Baby Potato) Roast French Fries or Cajun Potatoes - Potatoes are so versatile that it lends itself to spices pleasing the palate, and have made a place for themselves in every cuisine. We too have our vegetable dishes starring ‘the Potato’. The tiny baby potatoes are a temptation whenever we go shopping; I have to control myself or I will serving them for almost every meal! The only drawback is that they do not absorb the masalas very easily. I would prick them with a fork; an easier option is to slit them at opposite sides to help absorb flavours and masala; or halve them with their skins on. Peeling raw potatoes is a tedious process; also leaving the skin on is good for you. If need be, pressure cook for 1 whistle, release pressure and drain potatoes. Now the skin will come off easily and the masala will get absorbed as the dish simmers to perfection. Soak the baby potatoes in a large pail of water. Scrub and wash it well and select blemish - free ones to cook. It is better to cook them with the skin and worth the extra effort. Urulai roast is so easy to prepare - an everyday dish; yet a delicacy and will take centre stage in a party menu. It can also be served as a starter; on toothpicks. Ingredients: Chinna Urulai Kizhangu - 1/2 Kg :Curry Leaves :Oil - 3 tsp :Ghee - 1 Tbsp :Masala Paste:Onion - 1/2:Ginger - 1/2”:Garlic - 1 clove: Chilli Powder - 1 tsp : Dhania Powder - 1 tsp :Jeera Powder - 1/2 tsp :Turmerric Powder - 1/4 tsp “:Lemon Juice - 1 tsp (or) Curds - 2 Tbsp :Salt to taste Instructions: Wash the potatoes very well. Slit or prick with a fork.Grind the masala ingredients together without water (add very little if absolutely necessary). Mix the masala, 1 tsp oil and potatoes. Marinate for a couple of hours (or overnight in the fridge). Heat a pressure pan and add marinated potatoes to it. Add a little water (1/4 cup) and pressure cook for 1 whistle. Allow pressure to subside and then open cooker.Heat ghee and oil in a non-stick pan and fry curry leaves. Drain and keep aside. Transfer contents from cooker to the same pan. Cook over a slow flame until evenly roasted. Shake the pan or stir gently, or the potatoes will break. Mix in the fried curry leaves and serve.
  22. 22. Karma 22 Karupatti Paniyaram for Pillayar Nombu Pillayar Nombu falls on the 21st day after Thiru Karthigai, when ‘Sashti’ thithi coincides with ‘Sadhayam’ (star - Nakshatram). There are various stories told by elders about this festival, celebrated all over the world by Nagarathar’s. Being traders by profession, we celebrate this Nombu in the evening. In foreign countries, and now in cities like Chennai, Nagarathaar’s get together at their Sangam or in a common place and celebrate it together. Appa told me that Chettiars were “Samana’s” (people who follow Buddhism) who later converted to “Saivam” at Thiruvannamalai, when they migrated from Kanchipuram to Kaveripoompattinam. The ‘Thiri’is lit and taken alive. The ‘Ilai” is in the shape of a small mountain - the simplest form of Lord Ganesha.We offer Aval Pori, Arisi Pori, Ellu Pori, Chola Pori and Kambu Pori; along with Cheedai (representing Athikkai/Aalangai), Vadai, and Paniyaram (Karuppatti Paniyaram). Avarampoo, Kannupillai poo and Ma- Ilai form a bouquet. This is offered to the diety and on the next day, it adorns our Vaasal (doorway). The Ilai-Maavu is made of Jaggery or Karupatti and Rice flour. 21 threads form the ‘thiri’ that is drawn from a new, preferably unbleached cotton Veshti. The fasting does not happen now, but this pooja is revered and celebrated. The eldest in the family will do the honours. He will wear a ‘Thalapa” (head gear) and take the Ilai first. Then he will give the lit “ehlai” to all the others in the family/ community. This year we celebrated the same at Periamma’s. Ingredients: Raw Rice - 2 cups :Karupatti (Palm Jaggery) - 1 cup:Elaichi - 2, powdered:Water”: Oil for deep frying Ingredients: For the Maavu (Dough): Soak Raw Rice for 3 hours. Drain well and spread on a white cloth to remove moisture thoroughly.Grind the rice in batches to get a fine powder. Sieve. Return the granules in the sieve to the mixie to be ground further.Repeat process with the entire rice. Keep aside.Roughly chop palm jaggery. Place in a heavy bottomed pan with very little water and bring it a boil.Allow to dissolve completely, mashing the bits in the syrup. Add elaichi to it.Cook until it thickens a little (should be syrupy).Strain and cool slightly.Mix into the prepared flour and bind to get a firm dough. Keep aside. NOTE - Do not be tempted to add more syrup, as the dough will become so loose that you cannot shape it.At this stage, we removeaportionofthedoughforthe“Ilai” maavu; mix it with little ghee and keep it aside for the Pooja.Prasadham (Athikkai 21 nos, Alangai 21 nos, Paniyaram 5 nos, Vadai 5 nos) for the diety is prepared in ghee. Nadu Veetu Kolam is drawn on the floor. When dry, the stove is placed on it. We then blow the conch before starting to make the Palagarams. Take a small Kadai and pour about 3/4 cup of ghee. Heat it over a medium flame and make the Cheedai first; then the paniyaram and finally the Vadai. To make the Paniyaram: Take the thick Maavu (as prepared above) in a shallow dish. Add water as required and thin it down to a thick batter.Check taste for sweetness and add extra syrup if needed.Heat oil in a shallow, flat based pan.Pour a ladleful of the batter into the oil. Use a quick and short motion; and hold the ladle close to the oil. The Paniyaram will float to the top. Turn it over and cook for a minute or two.Flip over once again and drain it by holding the ladle against the sides of the Pan.Place it on a plate (elevated on one side to help drain the oozing oil). Note: My grandmother would add soaked and steamed moong dal into the batter for a softer Paniyaram. Left-over Paniyaram can be stored in the fridge. Next day, steam cook and enjoy!

  26. 26. Karma 26 Param Pujya Swamiji Sri Selvam Siddhar Read the following wonderful Hindu stories which I have written for our Hindu Children . The same would bring great spiritual, vedic, hindu, knowledge about our Hinduisam and our children will not lose our Hindu roots - H. H Swamiji Seri Selvam Siddhar Sati and Lord Shiva According to Hindu view of life, Shiva, the principle male power, unites with his female counterpart in order to acquire the ability to create and destroy. The story of Sati and Shiva, described in the Purana, presents in simple language, the truth and beauty of such a lofty vedic concept. In the days of ancient mythology, Brahma, the Prajapati, mentally created ten sons (manasa putra) to carry out his task of creation and destruction. Both Shiva and Daksha were the outcome of such a creation but Shiva had superior powers. Daksha, however, never liked the supremacy of Shiva. So, he took Shiva as his rival. One of the daughters of Daksha, named Sati, was a great devotee of Shiva. She was beautiful and virtuous. Most of the time Sati immersed in the thoughts of Shiva and dreamed of being his wife.Sati, through her sincere and devotional prayers, acquired the blessings of all gods and goddesses. Shiva finally yielded and appeared before Sati. She paid her reverence and kneeling down to Shiva chanted in praise of him. Shiva asked her to choose a boon. Shiva knew what she would ask but wanted her to speak for herself.Sati was hesitant, “How can I say that I want nothing else but Him!” After a while Sati gathered her courage and started to say, “Lord will you ----” Shiva did not let Sati complete her question, and he blessed her, “Be my consort Sati.” Soon Sati was married to Shiva amidst numerous gods and goddesses.After the wedding, Shiva took Sati to Kailas where they spent many a happy days. Then one day, Shiva requested Sati to accompany him to Prayag, today’s Allahabad, to attend a fire- worship ceremony or Yagna.When Shiva entered the Yagna hall, every one stood up to pay respect. After some time Daksha entered the Yagna hall. Everyone stood up to pay respect except Shiva. Daksha felt insulted.”How dare my son-in-law, Shiva, did not stand up! This is a deliberate insult to me,” Daksha said to himself. Shiva, on the other hand, thought to himself, “Being a superior power, it will not be nice if I stand up, and harm may befall on Daksha.” Shiva did not mean to insult Daksha.Taking this instance as an exception, Daksha promised to insult Shiva in public. He hurriedly returned home and declared that he will hold a grand sacrificial ceremony. He invited all gods and goddesses, but deliberately excluded Shiva.
  27. 27. When Sati, Shiva’s beautiful wife and Daksha’s daughter, noticed a large procession of gods and goddesses passing by, she curiously asked Shiva, “Where are they going?” Shiva replied, “To the grand sacrificial ceremony to be held by Daksha, your father.” Sati was amazed. “Then why have you not been invited?” she demanded angrily. “You should have been the first to be asked.” Shiva smiled gently at his wife’s loyalty and fervor. “Daksha has always been hostile to me,” Shiva tried to explain. But Sati’s disbelief increased, “Does my father not realize that you are the supreme power and no one can equal you?” “You are a good and true wife Sati,” Shiva replied gently, “but Daksha thinks differently, he takes me as his rival.” “Invited or not,” Sati said furiously, “I think we should go. It is after all my own father’s house and I atleast need no invitation.” “Then go with my blessings Sati,” replied Shiva. “but do not forget that Daksha will shower insults upon me. You must be strong enough to bear it silently and not allow your rage to show in your father’s presence. If you are unable to tolerate his insults, I fear you may come to harm.” Taking Nandi, the gentle white bull who was Shiva’s companion and mount, Sati arrived at her father’s grand sacrificial ceremony. Daksha reluctantly received her and publicly condemned Shiva - calling him the demon of death and an impious haunter of cremation grounds.”What place has the goblin lord of witches and foul spirits in a sacred ceremony such as mine?” Daksha boomed.Sati was hurt by his insults to her husband and begged her father to stop, but Daksha could not contain himself. “It is disgraceful for a so-called god to wear filthy rags, cover himself with snakes and dance like a madman at ceremonies ---” continued Daksha on and on until Sati could not stand any longer. She remembered her husband’s caution, “Do not allow your rage to get over you.” Sati painfully said, “I am ashamed to be known as your daughter. As I have promised my husband not to take any revenge, much less upon you, I merely denounce you before this assembly. I shall consume myself in a fire and return to mother Earth until I am born again to a father whom I can respect.” Daksha ignored the disappearance of Sati and ordered to continue with the sacrifice. When news reached Shiva, through Nandi, that his beloved wife was dead, he let out a mighty roar that shook Heaven and Earth. He soon created a powerful demon, named Virabhadra, from his matted hair. Shiva also created a huge army of demons to accompany Virabhadra. They descended like a hurricane on Daksha’s feast, destroying the sacrificial offering and killing all those who dared defend Daksha. Finally every one walked over to Shiva’s side to seek refuge with him. Shiva was about to destroy the universe, when Brahma came with other gods to calm him down. Shiva was still quivering and shook with wrath and grief at the loss of Sati. All the gods soothed the furious Shiva and pleaded with him to forgive Daksha and allow him to complete the sacrificial ceremony, which he had started, otherwise he would go to hell. Relenting, Shiva brought back to life all the people who had been killed in the battle and cured all those who had been injured. Finally he looked up, suppressing the power of his destructive third eye, and stated, “I will return Daksha to life, but he must bear the mark of his foolishness forever.”The gods agreed to Shiva’s condition and Daksha was revived. The mark of his foolishness was clear for all to see for instead of his own head, he wore the head of a goat. Daksha fell at Shiva’s feet weeping with gratitude, and finally acknowledged Shiva’s supremacy. With a mighty effort Shiva contained his grief for the loss of Sati, and he fell into profound meditation, waiting for the time when she would be reincarnated as Parvati and be his wife once again. A DUTIFUL SON- RAMA “Father’s Day” is observed in the month of June. It is the day for expressing our love and respect to our father, one of the most important person of our lives. Both father and mother, all over the world, play a vital role in shaping the character of their children. In traditional India, a dutiful son takes care of his parents in their old age. This is our social security. The daughter is more committed towards her husband’s family though her emotional ties with her own parents never get severed.
  28. 28. Karma 28 Today I will tell you the story of a dutiful son, Rama, who went to exile for fourteen years in order to fulfill the promises that his father Dasharatha made to one of his queens, Kaikeyi. Long long ago, in India, there lived a king whose name was Dasharatha. He ruled the kingdom of Koshal (part of present day Uttar Pradesh) from its capital Ayodhya. He was loved by one and all because he cared for the happiness and prosperity of his subjects. Dasharatha had three queens, Kaushalya, Kaikeyi and Sumitra. Even though Dasharatha had everything to make him happy he was very sad at heart because had no children. He was getting old, and was worried for not having an heir to inherit his throne. Upon the advice of his guru (spiritual guide), Vashishtha, Dasharatha performed a great sacrificial fire worship. On the final day of worship, a figure appeared in the huge flame with a bowl of rice pudding. The figure intoned, “Take this rice pudding and divide this amongst your wives. They will give you the sons you desire.” Then it disappeared. Dasharatha took the bowl to his first wife, Kaushalya, and gave her half of the pudding. Out of what was left, he divided that to his second wife Kaikeyi and the third wife Sumitra. When a little bit of pudding was still in the bowl, he gave that to Sumitra saying “Here, finish it up.” Kaushalya duly gave birth to a son, Rama. Kaikeyi was next, with a son Bharat. Sumitra was the last. She had been given two helpings, so she had twin boys, Lakshmana and Shatrughan.As the boys grew older, Lakshmana got attached to his eldest brother, Rama, and Shatrughan to Bharat. All the brothers, however, were very close and loved each other. Rama was respected by all because of his good nature and truthful character. He was strong, handsome and was the heir to the throne. When the boys were close to sixteen, it was one day, sage Vishwamitra arrived in the court of Dasharatha. Vishwamitra requested Dasharatha to send Rama and Lakshmana with him to the forest to kill the demons who disturbed him in his prayers. Rama and Lakshmana accompanied the sage and killed the she- demon Tadaka and her followers. Vishwamitra was pleased and taught Rama the sacred verses to call for the divine weapons to be used to protect justice. After completing the task, Rama was ready to return home when Vishwamitra asked Rama to accompany him to the kingdom of Janak. Janak’s eldest daughter, Sita, was about to pick a husband from the princes assembled in the swayambara (a gathering arranged for choosing a royal husband).Almost every prince present in the assembly wanted to marry Sita as she was the most beautiful girl on earth. To choose the best of the princes in the gathering, a condition was laid. Sita will marry the prince who will be able to bend and string a very heavy bow left in the front of the assembly. One after another all princes tried to lift the bow, but it could not be lifted, let alone bend and string. It weighed like a mountain. Finally Janak was about to give up when Vishwamitra asked Rama to try. Rama took his blessing, prayed, and lifted the bow at ease. When he tried to string the bow it snapped in two. Rama proved to be the strongest prince in the assembly. Sita happily garlanded him. Dasharatha was informed and he requested Janak to let the three sisters of Sita marry his other three sons - Lakshman, Bharat and Shatrughan. Janak was overwhelmed with the unexpected offer from Dasharatha. He immediately made all arrangements and all the four brothers got married together in front of the sacrificial fire. Dasharatha then decided to retire making Rama the crown king of Koshal. But things did not go according to Dashratha’s plan. When the day of coronation of Rama was announced Bharat and Shatrughan were at their maternal uncle’s place. The city started to prepare for the occasion and the queens were happy for the oncoming event. At this time, Dasharatha’s second wife Kaikeyi got an ill advice from her scheming, hunchback maid Manthara. Manthara said to Kaikeyi, “Why are you happy in celebrating Rama’s coronation? Don’t you realize that you will not be as respected as Kaushalya and Bharat will be totally ignored.” “What nonsense you talk,” said Kaikeyi, “I love Rama and he is the heir.” “Not if you change things” said Manthara in a devilish voice. “But, how can I?” “Easily,” said the scheming maid, “Remember, a very long ago, you saved Dasharatha’s life during a war, and he said he would grant you any two wishes.” “Yes, and I said I would ask for my wishes later, when I knew what I wanted,” said Kaikeyi. “Exactly” shouted Manthara “Ask for them now. Ask for Bharat to be crowned king and for Rama to be banished to the forest for fourteen years.” Kaikeyi fell a prey to the conspiracy of Manthara. When Dasharatha came to accompany her to the coronation ceremony, she was lying on the floor, sobbing.When Dasharatha repeatedly
