Its incredible, Its incredible, Its incredible. It will be wrong to say that I bow down to these people. Too much of bowing down had happened in this world. It is time to work along with their intensity and awareness, in things which we believe that should happen in the world. How efficiently they have been using Right to Information Act, Just watch.

A daring letter by an IIT'an to Rahul Gandhi. Plz read and repost..

B. Tech, IIT Bombay
ON Rahul Gandhi: "I feel ashamed to call myself an INDIAN after seeing
what has happened here in UP".
Dear Rahul,
But don't be disappointed, I would give you ample reasons to feel
ashamed... You really want to feel Ashamed..?
* First Ask Pranav Mukherjee, Why isn't he giving the details of
the account holders in the Swiss Banks.
* Ask your Mother, Who is impeding the Investigation against
Hasan Ali?
* Ask her, Who got 60% Kickbacks in the 2G Scam ?
* Kalamadi is accused of a Few hundred Crores, Who Pocketed the
Rest in the Common Wealth Games?
* Ask Praful Patel what he did to the Indian Airlines? Why did
Air India let go of the Profitable Routes ?
* Why should the Tax Payer pay for the Air India losses, when
you intend to eventually DIVEST IT ANYWAY!!!
* Also, You People can't run an Airline Properly. How can we
expect you to run the Nation?
* Ask Manmohan Singh. Why/What kept him quiet for so long?
* Are Kalmadi and A Raja are Scapegoats to save Big Names like
Harshad Mehta was in the 1992 Stock Market Scandal ?
* Who let the BHOPAL GAS TRAGEDY Accused go Scot Free? (20,000
People died in that Tragedy)
* Who ordered the State Sponsored Massacre of SIKHS in 84?
* Please read more about, How Indira Gandhi pushed the Nation
Under Emergency in 76-77, after the HC declared her election to Lok
Sabha Void!
Dear Rahul, to refresh your memory, you were arrested/detained by the
FBI the BOSTON Airport in September 2001.
You were carrying with you $ 1,60,000 in Cash. You couldn't explain why
you were carrying so much Cash.
(Incidentally He was with his Columbian girlfriend Veronique Cartelli,
ALLEGEDLY, the Daughter of Drug Mafia. 9 HOURS he was kept at the
Airport. Later then freed on the intervention of the then Prime Minister
Mr. Vajpayee.. FBI filed an equivalent of an FIR in US and released him.
When FBI was asked to divulge the information, by Right/Freedom to
Information Activists about the reasons Rahul was arrested ...
FBI asked for a NO OBJECTION CERTIFICATE from Rahul Gandhi.
So Subramaniyam Swami wrote a Letter to Rahul Gandhi, " If you have
NOTHING to HIDE, Give us the Permission"
Why did that arrest not make Headlines Rahul? You could have gone to the
Media and told, "I am ashamed to call myself an INDIAN?".
Or is it that, you only do like to highlight Symbolic Arrests (like in
UP) and not Actual Arrests (In BOSTON)
Kindly Clarify.....In any case, you want to feel ashamed, Read Along...
According to a Provision in the Citizenship Act, A Foreign National who
becomes a Citizen of India, is bounded by the same restrictions,
which an Indian would face, If he/she were to become a Citizen of Italy.
(Condition based on principle of reciprocity)
Now Since you can't become a PM in Italy, Unless you are born there.
Likewise an Italian Citizen can't become Indian PM,
unless He/She is not born here!
Dr. SUBRAMANIYAM SWAMI (The Man who Exposed the 2G Scam) sent a letter
to the PRESIDENT OF INDIA bringing the same to his Notice.
PRESIDENT OF INDIA sent a letter to Sonia Gandhi to this effect, 3:30
PM, May 17th, 2004.
Swearing Ceremony was scheduled for 5 PM the same Day. Manmohan Singh
was brought in the Picture at the last moment to Save Face!!
Rest of the SACRIFICE DRAMA which she choreographed was an EYE WASH!!!
In fact Sonia Gandhi had sent, 340 letters, each signed by different MP
to the PRESIDENT KALAM, supporting her candidacy for PM.
One of those letters read, "I Sonia Gandhi, elected Member from Rai
Bareli, hereby propose Sonia Gandhi as Prime Minister."
So SHE was Pretty INTERESTED! Until She came to know the Facts! She
didn't make any Sacrifice, It so happens that SONIA GANDHI
couldn't have become the PM of INDIA that time.
You could be Ashamed about that Dear Rahul!! One Credential Sonia G had,
Even that was a HOAX!
You go to Harvard on Donation Quota. ( Hindujas Gave HARVARD 11 million
dollars the same year, when Rajiv Gandhi was in Power)
Then you are expelled in 3 Months/ You Dropped out in 3 Months....
(Sadly Manmohan Singh wasn't the Dean of Harvard that time, else
you might have had a chance... Too Bad, there is only one Manmohan
Then Why did you go about lying about being Masters in Economics from
Harvard .. before finally taking it off your Resume upon questioning
by Dr. SUBRAMANIYAM SWAMI (The Gentlemen who exposed the 2G Scam)
At St. Stephens.. You Fail the Hindi Exam. Hindi Exam!!!
And you are representing the Biggest Hindi Speaking State of the
Sonia G gave a sworn affidavit as a Candidate that She Studied English
at University of Cambridge
According to Cambridge University, there is no such Student EVER! Upon
a Case by Dr. Subramaniyam Swami filed against her, She subsequently
Dropped the CAMBRIDGE CREDENTIAL from her Affidavit.
Sonia Gandhi didn't even pass High School. She is just 5th class Pass!
In this sense, She shares a common Educational Background with her 2G
In Crime, Karunanidhi.
You Fake your Educational Degree, Your Mother Fakes her Educational
Degree. And then you go out saying, " We want Educated Youth into
Not that Education is a Prerequisite for being a great Leader, but then
you shouldn't have lied about your qualifications!
You could feel a little ashamed about Lying about your Educational
Qualifications. You had your reasons I know, Because in India, WE
But who cares about Education, When you are a Youth Icon!!
You traveled in the Local Train for the first time at the Age of 38.
You went to some Villages as a part of Election Campaign. And You won a
Youth Icon!! ... That's why You are my Youth Icon.
For 25 Million People travel by Train Every day. You are the First
Person to win a Youth Icon for boarding a Train.
Thousands of Postmen go to remotest of Villages. None of them have yet
gotten a Youth Icon. You were neither YOUNG Nor ICONIC!
Still You became a Youth Icon beating Iconic and Younger Contenders like
Shakespeare said, What's in a Name?
Little did he knew, It's all in the Name, Especially the Surname!
Because the Name on your Passport is RAUL VINCI. Not RAHUL GANDHI..
May be if you wrote your Surname as Gandhi, you would have experienced,
what Gandhi feels like, LITERALLY ( Pun Intended)
You People don't seem to use Gandhi much, except when you are fighting
Elections. ( There it makes complete sense).
Imagine fighting elections by the Name Raul Vinci...
You use the name GANDHI at will and then say, " Mujhe yeh YUVRAJ shabd
Insulting lagta hai! Kyonki aaj Hindustan mein Democracy hai, aur is
ka koi matlab nahin hai! YUVRAJ, Itna hi Insulting lagta hai, to lad lo
RAUL VINCI ke Naam se!!! Jin Kisano ke saath photo khinchate ho woh bhi
isliye entertain karte hain ki GANDHI ho.. RAUL VINCI bol ke Jao... Ghar
mein nahin ghusaenge!!!
You could feel ashamed for your Double Standards.
Now You want Youth to Join Politics.
I say First you Join Politics. Because you haven't Joined Politics. You
have Joined a Family Business.
First you Join Politics. Win an Election fighting as RAUL VINCI and Not
Rahul Gandhi, then come and ask the youth and the Educated Brass for
involvement in Politics.
Also till then, Please don't give me examples of Sachin Pilot and Milind
Deora and Naveen Jindal as youth who have joined Politics. They are not
Politicians. They Just happen to be Politicians.
Much Like Abhishek Bachchan and other Star Sons are not Actors. They
just happen to be Actors (For Obvious Reasons)
So, We would appreciate if you stop requesting the Youth to Join
Politics till you establish your credentials...
Rahul Baba, Please understand, Your Father had a lot of money in your
Family account ( in Swiss Bank) when he died.
Ordinary Youth has to WORK FOR A LIVING. YOUR FAMILY just needs to
If our Father had left thousands of Crores with us, We might consider
doing the same. But we have to Work. Not just for ourselves.
But also for you. So that we can pay 30% of our Income to the Govt.
which can then be channelized to the Swiss Banks and your Personal
Accounts under
some Pseudo Names.
So Rahul, Please don't mind If the Youth doesn't Join Politics.
We are doing our best to fund your Election Campaigns and your Chopper
Trips to the Villages.
Somebody has to Earn the Money that Politicians Feed On.
Air India, KG Gas Division, 2G, CWG, SWISS BANK Account Details... Hasan
Ali, KGB., FBI Arrest..
You want to feel ashamed..?
Feel Ashamed for what the First Family of Politics has been reduced
to... A Money Laundering Enterprise.
Indira didn't marry Mahatma Gandhi's Son.
For even if you had one GENE OF GANDHI JI in your DNA. YOU WOULDN'T HAVE
(Ambition of only EARNING MONEY)
You really want to feel Ashamed?
Feel Ashamed for what you ' SO CALLED GANDHI'S' have done to MAHATMA'S
I so wish GANDHI JI had Copyrighted his Name!
Meanwhile, I would request Sonia Gandhi to change her name to $ONIA
GANDHI, and you could replace
the 'R' in RAHUL/RAUL by the New Rupee Symbol!!!
RAUL VINCI : I am ashamed to call myself an Indian.
Even we are ashamed to call you so!
P.S: Popular Media is either bought or blackmailed, controlled to
Manufacture Consent! My Guess is Social Media is still a Democratic
(Now they are trying to put legislations to censor that too!!).
Meanwhile, Let's ask these questions, for we deserve some Answers.
B. Tech, IIT Bombay

How to reverse the trust deficit - Chetan Bhagat answer to the charge that Anna Hazare was trying to subvert the significance of the Parliament.

I am glad that Anna Hazare's fast ends today and that both sides have reached some sort of an understanding.

Anna achievements are monumental. He managed to spur one of the most unapproachable governments in the world into positive action. Anna lit a desire for change in the youth's hearts. He also started the much-needed process of restoring good values in Indian people. Yes, many of us are still corrupt, whether forced by the system or otherwise, but a part of us yearns to be good. That part just became stronger. This mass booster shot of morality is the biggest contribution of the movement, apart from the Jan Lokpal.

Of course, these achievements did come at a cost. We saw a relatively long period of unsettling turmoil. We saw ugly, unpleasant human qualities like stubbornness, insolence and over aggressiveness on both sides, out for public display. In an ideal world, people would be reasonable, and irrespective of their position or power - do the right thing. However, we live in a far from ideal world, and given the circumstances, we came out relatively unscathed. This time, our youth did not come on the streets to hurt people from another caste or religion. They came to simply demand a more fair and just society, in a peaceful manner. It is a proud moment for all of us. India's class of 2011 is different, and a salute to that.

However, i was shocked, and disheartened by the intense criticism of Anna from certain sections of the English-speaking Indian intellectual circles. If the elite had backed Anna stronger, we could have had a faster and better consensus. Of course, people have a right to an opinion. However, i often found the opinions seemed more like a generic negative bias towards Anna, perhaps because of his background, rustic methods or sudden rise to fame, all irrelevant to the issue at hand.

The strongest anti-Anna argument was that Parliament cannot and should not be subverted. There is no doubt that Parliament and the Constitution are important and to be respected. However, these work on a basic assumption -confidence of the people. If confidence is lost, the institution does not work. And that is what we have to restore in Parliament now, before we ask people to respect it.

To give an example on the importance of confidence, even a currency of the country works the same way. The paper notes we carry in our pocket have value, only if people believe they have value. In many global instances, people have lost faith in a country's currency. This normally happens when the government prints money without care, thereby devaluing it at a rapid pace. The most recent example is Zimbabwe. At one point in 2008, prices were doubling in Zimbabwe every 24 hours. The profligate government printed money in higher denominations. The price of a loaf of bread reached 10 billion Zimbabwe dollars. Eventually, people dumped the currency and switched to a barter system. Now imagine if elite Zimbabwe intellectuals came on TV and said that the monetary system of the country must be respected - and the government and their currency are above all. Would anyone have bought the argument? I don't think so.

What was needed was steps to ensure confidence. The government needed to commit that they would print money responsibly and put checks and balances in place. Zimbabwe didn't. People over there have now switched to foreign currencies.

Similar is the nature of the confidence crisis with politicians in India, particularly the government. Their constant lying has only made it worse. They keep saying corruption needs to be fixed, but do little. Even the PM says 'coalition compromises'. What is the compromise? On the truth, isn't it?

Lying is something politicians got away with for a long time. It came at the cost of losing people's trust. A good Lokpal Bill will actually bring back people's trust in the government. In fact, the government needs a Lokpal Bill almost more than the people. It also needs to be more open and approachable. Party spokespersons need to be people with personal conviction, who place what is right above the party, even if it means accepting mistakes.

And while we love telling politicians how to do their job, we as citizens have to do our bit to restore confidence as well. We can't vote for candidates only because they are from a particular caste, religion or region. We have to place only one criterion - is he a good person? When we all send capable, honest people to Parliament, the trust and respect will return.

We were able to succeed in the first phase of 2nd Freedom Struggle because we forgot our caste, our religion, our name and we came together has ONE SINGLE DIVINE ENERGY.

                                                                   It has been hard for me to find people who could support this movement of India Against Corruption".  Looking at the way the Corruption has evolved in this country, they believed that "It is simply wasting its own time and energy" and "Nobody can change the fate of the country.  Its Doom", things like that. It was really hard for me to tell them that People are awakening from their sleep.  People have experienced the power they have in their hands, thanks to the Platform laid down by Anna Hazare and India Against Corruption Team.
                                                               Look at the Imam of Jama Masjid telling Muslims that they should not join the fight against corruption since shouting slogans like "Vandemataram" goes against their religion.  An attempt to divide the country along the caste lines.  Had they approached the problem as a simple humanbeing, they would have dealed with it effectively.  My God, when will people wake up out of their sleep. 
                                                       I have never looked for company to make things happen.  I start doing things, which I believe is right.  More than anybody else, I believe in myself.  I started attending rallies, started working on the blog to awaken the people, to inspire people who were already in fast, things like that.
                                                                  Now with the Parliament bowing down to the People's Wish by agreeing to refer the 3 main demands of Jan Lokpal Bill to the Standing Committee, IT WILL BE REMEMBERED IN THE HISTORY THAT IF PEOPLE GATHER TOGETHER HAS ONE ENERGY AND WORK TOWARDS THE GOAL WHICH WILL BENEFIT  EVERY HUMANBEING, THEN IT IS VERY EASY TO FORCE THE CORRUPT POLITICIANS TO MEND THEIR WAYS.  It is really very unfortunate that Anna had to go on Fast since nobody was ready to enact a law in the country which could root out corruption.  ANNA GOING ON FAST ONLY INDICATES ONE THING, THAT THE POLITICIANS OF THIS COUNTRY LACKED COMMITMENT TO COUNTER CORRUPTION VIDE THEIR VESTED INTEREST BE HARMED DUE TO THE PROCESS.
                                  We can only hope that in future, these politicians will not force Anna to go on fast by their weak-willed efforts of curbing corruption.  WHETHER IT BE CORRUPTION OR ANY OTHER ISSUE, THIS MOVEMENT HAS BROUGHT FORTH THE PEOPLE'S POWER, THAT THEY CAN CHANGE ANYTHING, IF THEY WILL.  BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.

My encounter with the Divine Sound - My experiences

Just got awakened by the buzzing sound, in the middle of the night.  I am sure that it was coming from inside.  Guessed that the Divine is trying to send some message to me so kept my eyes closed, maybe he wants to send me a message on what I should do next in the 2nd Freedom Struggle.  Opening my eyes, could stop the continous buzzing Divine sound to disappear.
                       But even a divine voice in life, if it continues to drive on for too long, it becomes a boring thing.  So decided to open my eyes and find it for myself from where is it coming from.  When I opened my eyes, I could not believe it.  Yesterday night when I and my wife slept, we were sleeping 2 feets apart because we had a fight.  But has it always happen, She hates me, She loves me, but she cannot ignore me, found her very close to me, with that Divine-God-Damn-Snorting-Sound.

  • Never obey anyone's command unless it is coming from within you also.
  • There is no God other than life itself.
  • Truth is within you, do not search for it elsewhere.
  • Love is prayer.
  • To become a nothingness is the door to truth. Nothingness itself is the means, the goal and attainment.
  • Life is now and here.
  • Live wakefully.
  • Do not swim - float.
  • Die each moment so that you can be new each moment.
  • Do not search. That which is, is. Stop and see

Just as every pious Muslim dreams of seeing Mecca once in his lifetime, every exiled born Tibetan dreams to see Tibet once in his lifetime.

The author is Dean of School at the Woodhall School, a private school in Connecticut.
Just as every pious Muslim dreams of seeing Mecca once in his lifetime, every exiled born Tibetan dreams to see Tibet once in his lifetime. I held that dream for years and first attempted to realize my dream in 1996, right after my graduation from the graduate school. Unfortunately, I had to abandon my plan, because a fellow Fulbright Scholar, Ngawang Choephel, was captured by the Chinese authority during his trip to Tibet. Like Choephel, my political status at the time was stateless - which meant that I'd have no country looking for me if I were arrested by the Chinese Security Police for real or perceived for suspicions.

Eleven years later, in the summer of 2007, now equipped with an American Passport, I travelled in Tibet. To respect the wishes of my co-travellers, I will not mention their names or their experience of travelling with me for forty days in Tibet. When I say Tibet, I don't just mean the truncated half of Tibet that the Chinese Government calls Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR). To us Tibetans, Tibet always consists of three provinces, Dohtoe (Kham), Dohme (Amdo) and Ustang (the Central Tibet), territory expanding 2.1 million square kilometers, nearly half of which has been incorporated into the neighboring Chinese provinces after the Chinese occupation of Tibet in the 1950s.

My first entry point in Tibet was the eastern border town, Dartsedoh, which now goes by the Chinese name, Kanding. A regular tourist, ignorant of Tibetan history, could never be able to tell that this town was a thriving Tibetan trading center only fifty years ago, because the town, except for a few monasteries, carries little sign of its Tibetan origins. Trade still flourished, but there were hardly any Tibetans, who have become an insignificant minority. A handful of Tibetans in the town, in their last ditch effort to save their dying customs and culture, gather every evening, seven days a week, at the edge of the town and dance; men, women, and children form a big circle and just dance to the tune of their old folk songs. When I foolishly tried to enquire what the idea of gathering and dancing every day was, they suspected me of being a Chinese informer, and snubbed me.

I later learned that I had to introduce myself by showing my American passport to convince them that I was a fellow Tibetan from exile. The moment they learned that I was a genuine fellow brother from exile, unvented emotions poured out. My guide in Kandze introduced me to a young man who spent two years in prison for taking part in a peaceful demonstration; he'd witnessed the execution of two of his friends who were accused of organizing the demonstration. A nomad in Tromgyal, a village several hours from Kandze, moaned that his son was still serving in prison for participating in a demonstration in Kandze. On our way from Tromgyal to Nyishul, plain-clothed Chinese police stopped our minibus and searched the bus for a Tibetan woman, whose photo was held in one of policemen's hand.

We arrived at the Nyoshul Monastery. There were no Chinese in this remote and 4500 meter elevated region. I distributed Chaney, holy grains blessed by the Nechung Oracle in India, to the monks and nuns in Nyishul monastery. As they scrambled for Chaney, they asked me how His Holiness the Dalai Lama was. Amidst the rugged Khampa vernacular, I heard a nun speaking to me in an immaculate Lhasan dialect. I later asked her how she ended up in this part of Tibet. She's one of the singing nuns, who defied the Chinese authority by singing a song declaring their allegiance to the Dalai Lama in the Draphci prison in Lhasa. With pressure from the Chinese authority, she was not accepted back to her nunnery after being released from the prison. In pursuit of her spiritual quest, secretly she moved to eastern Tibet, outside of TAR, where there is slightly more freedom to practice religion. I heard similar sad stories from individuals in Lithang, Nyarong, and Nagchukha. These are the region outside of TAR.

The situation in Lhasa, the Capital City of Tibet, was even more tense. This tension was not noticeable until I began interacting with the local Tibetan communities, which I wouldn't have been able to do without my faithful guide. Tibetans were desperate and frustrated to see that they are becoming second class citizens in their own country. The majority of Tibetan youths are illiterate or semi-literate. Except for Barkor Circuit Bazzar, major portion of the city was overtaken by the migrant Chinese. When I asked my guide why Tibetans didn't take loans from the Government to start up businesses to compete with the Chinese settlers, he grumbled, "That's easy for you to say, you live in a free country." He took me to the new Lhasa Railway Station; it was an impressive structure that you would think any resident of Lhasa would be proud of. "This used to be residences and an agricultural field," said my guide. "They were thrown out of here with a compensation of only twenty-eight thousand yuans. They're now begging in the streets of Lhasa. The Chinese called this a development, but for us Tibetans it's a nail in the coffin. The train brings over three thousand Han Chinese to Lhasa a week, and most of them will stay here for good, because of the Government subsidy."

Lhasa is not alone where Tibetans are marginalized; I visited Tsethang, the capital of the ancient Yarlung Empire. The legend says this is where the first Tibetan race was born. But my first impression of the city was that I was in China, not in Tibet. Hotels, shopping complexes, residents, and streets are remarkably modern, but there was an eerie absence of Tibetans. Sensing my discomfort, my guide took to the Tibetan sector of the city, which is far less developed. I told my guide that I want to visit Kongpo, my parents' home county. "You need a special permit to go there," my guide said. "You'll not like it. There are even Chinese, more than here."

In exile, the campaign by both the Tibetan Government in Exile and non government organizations focused primarily on China's suppression of political and religious freedom inside Tibet. What I gathered was that China's shrewd ethnic cleansing policy of promoting a massive Han population transfer into Tibet in their attempt to turn the Tibetans into an insignificant minority in their own country and eliminating the original Tibetan names of places is more dangerous than denying political and religious freedom. If the Han migration to Tibet continues at the present rate, it won't be too long before Tibetan struggle from exile will become meaningless. Tibetans inside Tibet are resilient; they have resisted and survived the Chinese repression for the past fifty years, but this new onslaught cannot be resisted with willpower alone.

I asked questions about how to tackle this problem to Tibetan Prime Minster in Exile, Samdong Rinpoche, and other Tibetan intellectuals at the seminars and conferences I've attended. They all agreed with the gravity of the situation, but, like me, none of them seem to have the answer. Considering the enormity of the problem, and bereft of a solution, the issue falls into the background of the Human Rights abuse, religious and political repression.

Although he has rarely used it to address this problem specifically, I believe the Dalai Lama's Middle Way Approach is his endeavor to tackle this problem. The Tibetan Government in Exile, headed by the new Tibetan Prime Minster and Tibet Support Groups around the world, should be more vocal and bring this issue to the forefront their campaigns. This issue is neither political nor religious, but rather the question of the survival of a race.

Gratitude has become the very way of my life - Sharing my experiences

Some 10 years back, when I came across the words of Osho "Living Life, Moment to Moment", I could not really make out How could living this moment beautifully, can make bring the next moment beautiful? I always wondered how could my life change, if I can live this moment intensely. But in the deepest recess of my being, I felt that there is something invaluable being said, and I will pursue till the very end of my life until I understood its significance.
After pursuing spirituality intensely, I can say that something has changed very fundamentally inside me. Today I find, that just interacting even with strangers, it doesn't take even a moment to befriend them. Life is Beautiful. People here, often term me as "Atheist" because they never see me going to temple. They have their own definition of being religious. Personally, for me, I have never felt the need to go to temple, to thank God. As life as turned up, after joining Isha Yoga, today I can say, that my whole life is filled with Gratitude. Every day, every moment I remember God, for showering me with a gift to see life, with beauty and grace. After more than 3 years of practicing Kriya Yoga, I can feel the very flow, the very way the energy is moving inside me. It has such grace, such flow, that I wish that it happens to everyone.
We have the choice of confining our life just to temples and church or you can carry the very temple inside your heart.

A Guru Always Takes You For A Ride - Sadhguru

baby with snake

Sadhguru on using our ring finger for applying vibhuti on our forehead.

Always in our tradition, for everything that you do, you must use the ring finger. All the nadis are activated by touching certain portions of the finger. If you want to take vibhuti or kumkum you use this finger to apply it, simply because these are all different ways to diffuse the karmic structure. Even unknowingly, if you touch something sacred that has a certain energy quality to it with your ring finger, it dissolves some karma; you get to shed some of it. Now this powerful vibhuti here, when you take it with your ring finger, unknowingly you will drop some karma right here. The whole tradition was built like that - whichever way, you must be slowly moving towards your liberation.

From Anger to Compassion - The Power of Yoga

It does not matter how much people preach "don't get angry"; when certain situations arise, you get angry. It does not matter what kind of human being you become; even if you become superhuman, you will never have absolute control over the external world. Whether it is with the company you work for, your family or the world, you will never have total control over external situations.

But you can have total control over your internal situation. Emotional states like anger, hate, lust, compassion or love -- from the lowest states to the highest -- are certain types of expression of the same energy. People often ask, "Can we exist without anger?" This is generally because anger is the most intense emotion people have experienced in their lives. People want intensity, but the only way they know how to be intense is through physical action, anger or pain. The very reason why drugs and sex have become such a big thing in the world is, somehow, people want to experience some intensity, at least for a few moments -- it is the intensity that draws them. I am always talking about intensity because intensity is the only thing man is seeking, and it is the only thing that will liberate man from his present bondages.

But unfortunately, for most people, their fear, anger and hatred are the most intense situations in their lives. Their love is never so intense. Their peace is never so intense. Their joy is never so intense. Instead, their negativities are intense, so they experience power in negative circumstances.

Anger is enormous intensity; it is an intensity that hurts you. It is an intensity that can get you into a lot of trouble. It is an intensity that can destroy people around you and yourself in so many ways. But if you transform your energy in a certain way, it naturally becomes love and compassion. Then, slowly, as the process goes further, you reach the pinnacle of self-awareness and experience a unity with all life. The whole process of yoga is based on this.

For many people, "yoga" just means twisting yourself into some impossible postures. But that is not what we are referring to as yoga. "Yoga" means to be in perfect tune, when your body, mind, spirit and the existence are in absolute harmony. When you fine-tune yourself to such a point where everything functions so beautifully within you, the best of your abilities will naturally flow out of you. So yoga is the science of activating your inner energies in such a way that your body, mind and emotions function at their highest peak.

Suppose you start experiencing everyone around you as part of yourself. After that, no one needs to teach you to be good, not to harm others. And once you are experientially a part of everything, then nobody needs to teach you morality. Then you can do something about any given situation that may be unpleasant, but without anger. What you have to do, you do; but when you do it with anger and hatred, it is of no value. A day can come when, even if you are put into the most extreme situation, your energies will remain very calm. When you act out of unity with all life, you act without identity. Only then can you function out of your intelligence.

Yoga means to cultivate your energy in such a way that gradually it breaks the physical limitations and elevates you to the highest level of awareness, the flowering of human potential.

Whale - Such a Lively Creature

Akash - The Womb of Creation

To nourish the human being into a greater possibility, it is very important how the water, the air, the earth, the fire and the fifth dimension, which is the largest one, the space or akash, behave. Today, modern science is recognizing there is something called as akashik intelligence; that is, empty space has a certain intelligence. Whether this intelligence works for you or against you will determine the nature of your life, whether you are a blessed being or one who is going to be knocked around for the rest of your life.

For no reason, some people are being hammered around by life. For no reason, some people seem to be blessed with everything. It is not for no reason. It is your ability – either consciously or unconsciously, to be able to get the cooperation of this larger intelligence which is functioning. The fundamental element is akash or the space. It is improper to call it the fifth element, because it is the element. All the other four just play upon it. Now we are here on a round planet. The Earth, the solar system, this galaxy, the whole cosmos, everything is all held in place only by the akash. You, yourself are held in place by akash.

Have you noticed, even Tendulkar looks up? It is not just him, right from ancient times man has been doing this when he achieved something in great moments of success. Some of them may be looking up for the uperwalla or for some god, but in most of them, unknowingly there is a realization. At any time, when you hit a peak experience, physically without even your awareness, your body in gratitude looks upward because somewhere there is a recognition, there is an intelligence in a human being which recognizes that.

If you know how to get the cooperation of the akash into your life, this will be a blessed life. An intelligence that you have never thought possible will become yours, because an intelligence which is beyond your understanding and grasp is right now functioning right here within you, isn’t it? It is that intelligence which is holding the whole cosmos together; it is that intelligence which is the womb for creation. It is in the womb of that intelligence that all creation is happening, and it is not denied to you. Access is not blocked, it is just that you have never looked that way.

You are so engrossed in the little nature of who you are; your body, your thought, your emotion and your hormones have engaged you so much that looking up and paying attention to something beyond, never occurs to you. So many fantastic things are happening in the cosmos today in absolutely miraculous and fantastic ways but one little worm of a thought is worming through your head and that keeps you engaged. That is maya. Maya does not mean that the existence does not exist. It is just that when something so phenomenal and fantastic is happening, these little things keep you busy and engaged and they make you feel as if these little things are more real than everything else.

So to get the cooperation of the akash, there is one simple process you could do. After sunrise, before the sun crosses the 30-degree angle from the horizon, look up at the sky once and bow down to it for holding you in place today. After the sun crosses 30 degrees, sometime during the day, any time, look up and bow down again. After the sun sets, once again look up and bow down; not to some god up there, just to the empty space for holding you in place for today. If you just do this, life will change dramatically. If you consciously do this three times a day, if you get cooperation from akash, life will happen in magical ways.

Sadhguru, I don't have time to do Yoga ?

You must also be a loving person. You must have clean eyes, an unprejudiced mind -- that's why you can ...see my people and their love and their purity. Everybody who comes here sees things which he is capable of, which he deserves. Where you can see love and its purity and cleanness, there are people who see sexual orgies happening here. I have never seen... I would love to see, but they never happen. I have been listening to the reports about sexual orgies and I have been asking Anando, "What sexual orgies?" She says she will try to find out. Everybody comes with prejudices, colored glasses on their eyes. Then they see everything colored according to their glasses. Yes, a few people come just like you, unprejudiced, without any idea gathered from yellow journalism. You come just to see on your own, with your own eyes, without carrying any conclusions beforehand; that's why you can see the reality. A prejudiced mind is almost mad -- it has not the clarity, not the sensitivity.

I am reminded of a madman who thought he was dead. It was very difficult for his family: he would not go to sleep; he would be moving around and would not allow anybody else to sleep. They would say "Please go to sleep." And he would say, "Have you ever heard of any dead man going to sleep?" On each and every point it was a trouble. They tried to convince him that he was not dead, but he was so convinced they finally took him to a psychoanalyst and asked, "Help us. This poor guy thinks that he is dead." And the madman laughed and said, "Can a dead man be psychoanalyzed? Why are you wasting your money?" The psychoanalyst also felt a little embarrassed about how he was going to deal with it; it was such a new problem. Sigmund Freud did not mention it, neither did Jung nor Adler. This was an absolutely new problem. But he said, "I will try," and he tried to convince him. Finally, seeing that there was no way he could be absolutely certain, the psychoanalyst took a needle and put the man in front of the mirror. He said, "Now I will do an experiment which will prove everything. I want to ask you one thing: have you ever heard that dead men don't bleed?" He said, "That's true. When I was alive I heard that dead men don't bleed." So he said, "Now give me your hand, and watch." He pushed the needle into the man's hand and blood came out. The madman started laughing. The psychoanalyst said, "What are you laughing for?" He said, "I am laughing because for millions of years fools have believed that dead men don't bleed. They do bleed! -- it is proved. You have proved something of great importance. I appreciate your genius." At that point the psychoanalyst called the family of the man and said, "Take him away, because he is starting to influence me. Last night I started wondering whether I am alive or dead. Who knows, perhaps that dead man is right and I am wrong -- because he is so certain. I am not so certain. No argument can prove anything against his argument. I cannot stand so much argumentation when somebody comes to prove that he is not alive. Just take him away. I have my wife, I have my children, and if this thing also becomes my idea -- that I am dead -- they will all starve."

When somebody comes with a conclusion, then he looks through that conclusion and chooses only things which support his position. Logic is a prostitute. It can help anybody -- for or against, it has no problem. I know my people, I know their love, I know their purity, I know their silence. And when two sannyasins have met after years and they are hugging each other, journalists rush to photograph them. Now you cannot photograph purity, you cannot photograph love... and they will print those photographs to prove: "Look what is happening!" You are fortunate that you have come with a clean and clear mind. I hope that those who come here with clear eyes show fairness. I don't want them to say something which they don't feel; I simply want them first to feel, and then to decide -- not to decide before experiencing it. OSHO

The Monk, Thich Quang Duc - As he burned he never moved a muscle, never uttered a sound, his outward composure in sharp contrast to the wailing people

In 1963, he sat down in a street in Saigon in the meditative position. He poured gasoline all over his body and set himself alight. He maintained a calm and meditative posture as his body burned, and then he simply toppled over. His death was dramatic but not all that different in nature and spirit from the deaths of many other Buddhist leaders and saints. One remarkable difference, however, was that his death was shown on many different televisions all around the world.

The name of the Quang Duc Association is named after Most Venerable Thich Quang Duc, a Vietnamese monk, who was known throughout the world by his self-immolation at the age of sixty-seven in central Saigon, in the lotus sitting position with full resolve whilst 4 metres flames consumed his body. This event happened at midday, on June 11, 1963, witnesed by thousands of Vietnamese people and through the media, seen by millions more people overseas.

The Most Venerable Thich Quang Duc, whose lay name was Lam Van Tuc, was born in 1897 in a small village of a province in central Vietnam. At the age of seven, he entered into the religious life and became a disciple of the Zen master Hoang Tham. At the age of twenty, he was ordained as a full Buddhist monk (Bhikkhu). After ordination, he spent many years practicing islolated and extremely demanding ascetic purification practices in the Ninh Hoa Mountains, near Nha Trang City. In 1932 he started his Buddhist teaching career at Ninh Hoa. He then went to a central Vietnam province to rebuild temples. By 1943, he had rebuilt nearly 20 pagodas, and the same year, moved to Saigon, South Vietnam where he lived in the Long Vinh temple finally taking permanent residence in the Quan The Am temple.

In 1953, he was appointed Head of rituals Committee of the United Vietnamese Buddhist Congregation, a position that he held until the time of his death.

In 1963, after four years of increased oppression by the Diem government towards Buddhist priests and the Buddhist community the Most Venerable Thich Quang Duc perfomed his heroic deed to highlight Bhuddhist demands for religious equality in South Vietnam his act literally flashed around the world by television. At midday, on June 11, 1963, he took a ride to the corner of Phan Dinh Phung and Le Van Duyet in central Saigon (now Nguyen Dinh Chieu and Cach Mang Thang Tam Street). Pouring petrol over himself, he sat in the middle of the corner, struck a match, and immolated himself.

His body was consumed, and all that remained was his heart. Later when his later when the Buddhist community tried to cremate his heart it remained intact. It was placed in the Reserve Bank of Vietnam and became the symbol of the Holy Heart.

Millions all over the globe saw his self sacrifice, and The Most Venerable Thich Quang Duc has become world-famous figure. Before he passed away, he left a letter to the government of the day, and through them, for the people of Vietnam. In Vietnamese culture, this letter is now known as the letter of Heart Blood. The core of his letter was a plea for all Buddhist believers, monks, nuns and lay people, to unite and strive for the preservation of Buddhism. His plan was to demonstrate to the world the injustice that was being perpetrated on the Buddhist religion and community by a repressive regime and it worked extremely well. Many nations worldwide brought pressure on the South Vietnamese government to soften its attitude to the traditional Vietnamese religion. The Saigon government complied.
