But the long years when adherents were unable to point to hard science to support their belief in the technique may finally be coming to an end. When Carol Cattley’s husband died it triggered a relapse of the depression which had not plagued her since she was a teenager. “I instantly felt as if I wanted to die,” she said. “I couldn’t think of what else to do.” … continue reading

There are certain persons who can cure diseases merely by touch. The science behind this is also the application of positive microvita. And the cause of the decomposition of anything overtime is negative microvita. When a person is attacked by negative microvita and certain symptoms are observed, it is called “ prognosis” and when the symptoms develop in the final stage of the disease, it is called “ diagnosis”. There is no doubt that the medicine prepared in a sentient environment by sentient people, from a medium or mother tincture which is also prepared in a sentient environment, will attract … continue reading

Researchers attribute these changes to a phenomenon they call the ŒRelaxation Effect.¹ The researchers compared the genetic profile of individuals who were long-term practitioners of relaxation methods such as yoga and meditation to a control group of individuals who were not relaxation practitioners. In the words of Dr Herbert Benson, who led the research group at the Harvard Medical School, We found a range of disease fighting genes that were active in the relaxation practitioners but not active in the control group. Interestingly, in as little as two months after the control group began meditating, their genetic profile changed to resemble those of the relaxation practitioners. … continue reading

Composite Medical Pathies – A Need of the Hour

The human body is one but the approaches of bringing it into ease (free from dis-ease) are manifold. We have yet to discover a comprehensive model of the human body which will reveal the limits and efficacy of different therapeutic modalities.

Yoga Philosophy

many candlesHuman Life Is An Ideological Flow

The study of that which is beyond the mind is Ideology and the process for achieving oneness with that state is meditation. Human beings are moving from birth to birth along a path which flows from one expanded state to another until final achievement. Humans have three levels of mental process—instinct, intellect and intuition. Some humans are fully engrossed in their instinctual mind. Instinct is not learned, it is inborn. For example the instinct of the baby is to suck milk. No one can say that a baby is inferior or superior, high or low. A baby is just a baby struggling with his or her body to be able to crawl, sit up or walk. The baby is moving along its own path. … continue reading


lotus flowerSignificance of Raja Dhi Raja Yoga (Part 2)

By doing Prán’áyáma the respiration is extended because we know that after every inhalation and exhalation there is pause and this very pause is the cause of some higher intellectual or spiritual thoughts or experience.

scientific human mindYoga Wisdom – Your Mind Is More Than Your Brain

We can cut open our brain, we can examine all its parts and chambers, we can touch it, we can analyze its molecules. But we still cannot touch or see the mind. Because the mind is an interior level of our being. And interiors cannot be cut open with a knife. Interiors must be interpreted. If you want to know what my mind is like, you must communicate with me. Poking my brain won’t do much. Hook my brain up to an EEG machine can tell you many things about my brain activity, but nothing about how I feel. You, a human being, not a machine, must ask me how I feel. … continue reading


Practising tantraProcess of Tantra

In the word “Tantra”, “Tra” is a Sanskrit suffix which signifies repetition. Much of what we do in life is repetition. We repeat a particular action with only some variation of intensity or interest. How many times have you been in this room, how many times have you eaten breakfast, how many times have you eaten ice cream hoping that that ice cream would be the best ice cream you ever ate in your life? What kind of repetition will get us out of repetition? Repetition is circular; it keeps going around and around. “Tra” signifies moving out of circular movement, repetition that brings you up and out of repetition…
