1.Early morning hours are essential and precious. I can say that they are “Golden hours” or “Peak hours”.In morning hours one should finish and accomplish all the important task with keeping oneself refraining from digital technology and traffic university. According to modern medical and behaviour science, the energy levels in morning hours are high, the moods are elevated and this would be of great help to enhance productivity and good work output.

4.Today no field is static and every field is “Ever-changing field”whether its medical science, computer science, writing, astrology, digital technology or whatever the field you are working or and having your carrier or profession.Every field is changing fastly and constantly. I mean to say that today every field is “Ever-changing Field”, and if you do not update yourself with the latest innovation, facts and technology then you will be “out of Game” or “Outdated”.

Wonderful teacher of life

#teachersday,#kindness,#help,

#selflesservice

*GOOD MORNING!*

*How an act of kindness can make a difference to someone for all their life!*
As she stood in front of her 5th grade class on the very first day of school, she told the children an untruth. Like most teachers, she looked at her students & said that she loved them all the same. However, that was impossible, because there in the front row, slumped in his seat, was a little boy named Teddy Stoddard.



Mrs. Thompson had watched Teddy the year before & noticed that he did not play well with the other children, that his clothes were messy & that he constantly needed a bath. In addition, Teddy could be unpleasant.

It got to the point where Mrs. Thompson would actually take delight in marking his papers with a broad red pen, making bold X’s and then putting a big “F” at the top of his papers.

At the school where Mrs Thompson taught, she was required to review each child’s past records & she put Teddy’s off until last. However, when she reviewed his file, she was in for a surprise.

*Teddy’s first grade teacher wrote, “Teddy is a bright child with a ready laugh. He does his work neatly & has good manners… he is a joy to have around.”*

*His second grade teacher wrote, “Teddy is an excellent student, well liked by his classmates, but he is troubled because his mother has a terminal illness & life at home must be a struggle.”*

*His third grade teacher wrote, “His mother’s death has been hard on him. He tries to do his best, but his father doesn’t show much interest & his home life will soon affect him if some steps aren’t taken.”*



*Teddy’s fourth grade teacher wrote, “Teddy is withdrawn & doesn’t show much interest in school.He doesn’t have many friends & he sometimes sleeps in class.”*

By now, Mrs. Thompson realized the problem & she was ashamed of herself. She felt even worse when her students brought her Christmas presents, wrapped in beautiful ribbons & bright paper, except for Teddy’s. His present was clumsily wrapped in the heavy, brown paper that he got from a grocery bag. Mrs. Thompson took pains to open it in the middle of other presents. Some of the children started to laugh when she found a rhinestone bracelet with some of the stones missing & a bottle that was one-quarter full of perfume.But she stifled the children’s laughter when she exclaimed how pretty the bracelet was, putting it on & dabbing some of the perfume on her wrist. *Teddy Stoddard stayed after school that day just long enough to say, “Mrs. Thompson, today you smelled just like my Mom used to.” After the children left, she cried for at least an hour.*



*On that very day, she quit teaching reading, writing & arithmetic. Instead, she began to teach children.Mrs. Thompson paid particular attention to Teddy. As she worked with him, his mind seemed to come alive. The more she encouraged him, the faster he responded. By the end of the year, Teddy had become one of the smartest children in the class & despite her lie that she would love all the children the same, Teddy became one of her “teacher’s pets..”*

*A year later, she found a note under her door, from Teddy, telling her that she was still the best teacher he ever had in his whole life.*

Six years went by before she got another note from Teddy. He then wrote that he had finished high school, third in his class & she was still the best teacher he ever had in life.

Four years after that, she got another letter, saying that while things had been tough at times, he’d stayed in school, had stuck with it & would soon graduate from college with the highest of honors. He assured Mrs.Thompson that she was still the best & favorite teacher he had ever had in his whole life.

*Then four more years passed & yet another letter came. This time he explained that after he got his bachelor’s degree, he decided to go a little further. The letter explained that she was still the best & favorite teacher he ever had. But now his name was a little longer.The letter was signed, Theodore F. Stoddard, MD.*

The story does not end there. You see, there was yet another letter that spring. Teddy said he had met this girl & was going to be married. He explained that his father had died a couple of years ago & he was wondering if Mrs. Thompson might agree to sit at the wedding in the place that was usually reserved for the mother of the groom.

Of course, Mrs. Thompson did. And guess what? She wore that bracelet, the one with several rhinestones missing. Moreover, she made sure she was wearing the perfume that Teddy remembered his mother wearing on their last Christmas together.

They hugged each other, and Dr. Stoddard whispered in Mrs. Thompson’s ear, “Thank you Mrs. Thompson for believing in me.Thank you so much for making me feel important & showing me that I could make a difference.”

*Mrs. Thompson, with tears in her eyes, whispered back. She said, “Teddy, you have it all wrong. You were the one who taught me that I could make a difference. I didn’t know how to teach until I met you.”*

*(For you that don’t know, Teddy Stoddard is the Dr. at Iowa Methodist Hospital in Des Moines that has the Stoddard Cancer Wing.)*

Random acts of kindness, I think they call it?

“Believe in Angels, then return the favor.”

Layman people are most of the time confused with the terminology Yoga. But Yoga means a combination of Pranayam, Asan, and Meditation. How do Yoga, Pranayam, Asana, and Meditation would help you to counter the stress? Before looking at the answer let’s understands the basic definition of these terms. In simple words, the science and art of breathing, posture, and concentration is known as Pranayam, Asan, and Meditation respectively and synchronization and Integration of all the three are what is known as Yoga.

The scientific explanations which can be given to relieve the stress are numerous but among them, the most common are following. During Pranayam there is deep breathing, which increases the concentration of oxygen in the blood, there are many anti-oxidants like Vitamin A, D, E K but among them, oxygen itself is the best anti-oxidant which delays degenerative changes and prolonged youth. Doing Pranayam for a longer duration, there is the activation of the autonomic nervous system( i.e. vagus nerve-which has a calm down effect) which results in control of Blood Pressure, Diabetes, and bronchial asthma. There is a decrease in the concentration of stress chemical (hormone) cortisol in blood noticed and more important among these is there is the release of various relaxing neurotransmitters (e.g.melatonin, dopamine) in the brain observed during meditation. There is also positive behavior change and increase self-awareness observed and noticed in people regularly practicing Pranayam and meditation. So a person can easily handle psychological stress at the workplace and become more adjustable and cooperative in society.

The best time for Yoga practice is early morning and evening and in the beginning, this art of Yoga must be learned under the supervision of an experienced yoga teacher. The Practitioners of yoga experiences the positive effects right from the beginning and they feel relaxed, calm, thoughtless, feels life pleasant, and full of energy.

Because of the above-mentioned advantages and scientific explanations many countries of the world, civil society, Governmental and Non-Governmental Organizations, Corpororgaorganizationsn are advocating and recommending Yoga in Day to Day life Practice. There are examples of many well-known Persons who are Practicing Yoga and Meditation in their routine life. E.g. Late Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Company practicing Zen meditation. So it can be concluded that this yoga system of medicine which has originated in India has a tremendous and transformational role in changing the lives of millions. Taking the lessons from us, many countries of the western world has recognized its importance and has incorporated it into their lifestyle and positive advantage of this system is that it can be practiced by anyone irrespective of any race, religion, caste, and country and without any harm or side effects. Finally, last but not least stress and happiness are two sides of the same coin and yoga is the most cost-effective, scientific, and efficient remedy for relieving stress in present-day life.

Concepts of Patanjali Yog Sutras-Fundamentals of YOG.(image credit-Image cedit-newsexpand.com)

#patanjali yogsutra,#pranayam,#asan,

#meditation,#samadhi,#yoga,#guru,

#international yoga day

I want to know God’s thoughts……..the rest are details.
– Albert Einstein
The western world came to know about Indian Yoga, yogis, and great saints when British journalist Paul Brunton for the first time published his book “In quest of secret India”, where he meets many Indian yogis and great saints and have taken a deep interest in Indian yoga philosophy. From that, onwards many countries of the world have started in-depth medical and scientific research in this field and published and documented various advantages of yoga for human health.
Today many people join yoga and meditation classes but they don’t get results. Many coaching classes are mushroom up during vacations and holidays. They don’t get peace of mind and feel relaxed after attending such sessions. Then they switch over to other classes and teachers and finally, they don’t get satisfactory results what happens ultimately, in the long run,s that people lose confidence and faith in this system of yoga philosophy.

The main and strong reason for failure in meditation is that people don’t follow the basic steps of the Patangali yoga sutra. Accor to do the other Patangali yoga sutra “Meditation” is step No. 7 in yoga philosophy. When schoolboy of the seventh standard cannot be taught calculus of twelfth class. In the same way, newcomers in yoga philosophy cannot be directly taught meditation. Those who want systemic progress in yoga science must begin their journey from fundamental steps of Yam, Niyam, Asan, Pranayam, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhayan, and finally samadhi. Now I will try to explain each step with its meaning in detail.

A man is a bundle of thought and these thoughts are reflected in his behavior, attitude, personality, and how he treats other human beings especially his subordinates. The concept of the Yog sutra is to move from the journey of the outer materialistic world to the inner world of silence and peace. It’s a journey from consciousness to superconsciousness. It’s traveling from thoughtfulness to thoughtlessness and increasing self-awareness.
The mind is a collection of thoughts. So as long as thought exist, the mind exists. But when the thought stops, the mind dissolves. Patanjali described this state as a state of super-consciousness. What remains is pure consciousness without any disturbance, activity, or impurity. This cannot be understood by the mind because it is a state beyond the mind. It is the goal of all yoga practice, and it is the final goal of life.
For purification of mind, body, and soul the Indian great sage Patanjali advocated 8 steps for reaching from consciousness to superconsciousness. Application of these fundamentals is most essential in life for the one who wants to progress in yoga. These 8 limbs of yoga are also known as Astanga Yoga.
1. YAM
2. NIYAM
3. ASAN
4. PRANAYAM
5. PRATAYAHAR
6. DHARANA
7. DHAYAN (MEDITATION)
8. SAMADHI (SUPERCONSCIOUNESS)

We will try to understand the meaning of each step of the patangali yoga sutra.
1.YAM (RESTRAINTS) -The meaning of yam in vernacular language is “ Nigahra”.In English difficult to find the exact word the but word near it is “RESTRAINTS”.There are 5 types of YAM and they are
1. Aahinshya-The absolute meaning of this is “Non-violence”. Its means that we should not harm others using our mind (thought), Speech, and our Actionactionsa). when you study the life history of Indian yogis, you will notice one specific feature in their worship was that many times they encountered many wild animals like lions, snakes, etc during their Sadhana*( spiritual practice of meditation in the jungle) in the forest or jungle. But none of the wild animals have ever targeted these saints in their journey to eternal peace. Patanjali in his yoga sutra mentioned that “The Yogi who completely Practice Non-violence in their life have developed such characteristics and features that persons, animals who are having adverse nature become non-violent and cooperative.” e.g. Many Indian sages, saints, and yogis were many times encountered by snakes and lion during meditation; but none of the wild animals have ever harmed them.
2. Satya- (truthfulness) (The power of Truth)
3. Asteya- (Non-stealing)
4. Brahmacharya- (continence) (Practice of Celibacy) lit. “Walking the path of the God”; control of sexual passion; control of vital energy; preservation of vital fluid.
5. Aparigraha- ( Non-possessiveness, on-greed, on-hoarding)

2. NIYAM- (OBSERVANCES) -There are 5 Niyams
1. Socch- purity of action, speech, mind
2. Santosh- (self-satisfaction)
3. Tap- Austerity, discipline
4. Swadhaya- self-study, the study of scriptures
5. Ishvara pranidhana -surrender to GOD, one of the methods of kriya yoga, a method to attain Samadhi)

3. ASAN -SEAT POSTURES

4. PRANAYAM – PRACTICE OF BREATH CONTROL

5. PRATYAHARA -WITHDRAWING THE MIND FROM SENSES

6. DHARANA –CONCENTRATION

7. DHAYAN –MEDITATION

8. SAMADHI (SUPERCONSCIOUNESS)-super-consciousness, super-conscious absorption; trance
Some of the important keynotes
• Today to pay deep tribute and for eternal remembrance of Great sage Maharshi Patanjali world is celebrating “international YOGA day on 21 June” to make aware the people regarding the importance of yoga in day to day life and stress management.

• The most challenging part of yoga philosophy is that it is a difficult and next to impossible task to get an experienced siddh yogi to guide you on this path because once the serpent energy (kundalini shakti) becomes awakened it must be channelized upward to all chakras in the proper direction. Although difficult to get real guru but still they are there for true and dedicated followers or discipline.
• The Real siddhi yogis and masters of yoga never highlight themselves. They work silently and most of the time they are away from the public and publicity and don’t have any personal and professional aspirations and don’t work for commercial gains.
• To keep the body healthy and for spiritual upliftment, yoga has a marvelous and powerful role, so start learning and practicing Yoga under the guidance of an experienced yogi.

Role of yoga in health, wellness, and disease.

#international yog day, #asan, #pranayam, #meditation,

“I have saved the lives of 150 people by heart transplants. If I had focused on preventive medicine earlier, I might have saved 150 million”.

  • Christian Barnard (south African Cardiothoracic surgeon)

In today’s competitive world and challenging environment, stress is an inevitable and indispensable part of human life. We are all well aware that stress has a deleterious effect on the human mind and body. It gives rise to many issues and problems related to psychological health and lifestyle disorders. The mental health ailments are stress, anxiety, neurosis, panic disorder, sleep disorders, chronic pain, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorders, hormonal imbalance, etc. The lifestyle diseases are hypertension, stroke, diabetes mellitus, obesity, etc. Globally, Because of the above-mentioned disease, there is very high morbidity, mortality, and loss of DALYs.


Yog has proven scientific, spiritual, and medical roles in the management of various diseases and illnesses. Way back in the history of the Ayurvedic system of medicine and in recent years in the period and the era of medical science various Asana, pranayama and meditation were recommended and advised to cure and treat health, medical, mental, and psychological disorders. Yoga provides a holistic and multi-dimensional approach to manage health, well-being and disease in the community. For example, deep breathing exercises (Pranayama) and meditation are advised to hypertensive patients. Kapal bhatti pranayam (favors the release of insulin from pancreatic beta cells) and Dhanur Asan to diabetes Mellitus patients (type -2 diabetes) and Vajrasana to the patient with gastric disorders and digestion problems. Even in the scenario of the SARS- CoV- 2 pandemic, researchers from different universities have explored and highlighted the importance of “certain meditation, yoga, asana, and pranayama in treating and curing Covid 19 infections”.There are various scientific mechanisms and explanations for the wonderful and beneficial effects of yoga on the human mind, body, and soul. Among them these effects are
👉 Increasing in vagal tone (for high BP)
👉Increase in the concentration of oxygen in the blood (during deep breathing exercise)
👉 Decrease in the levels of stress hormone like serum cortisol
👉 Changes in levels of various neurotransmitters during deep meditation (GABA-gamma Amino Butyric acid, dopamine, serotonin, etc).


There are various levels of health promotion and modes of intervention in disease prevention and control. Yog is an adjuvant modality of treatment is a strong tool to halt the progression of disease from primary to tertiary level of disease in conditions like hypertension, diabetes, anxiety, panic disorder, depression and other illness and diseases.
As we know that there four levels of intervention in disease prevention and control. Yoga therapy and yogic interventions are helpful and applicable in all levels of disease control in most of the non-communicable disease and mental health disorders. Following are yogic interventions at different levels
They are,
1.Primordial prevention-It is prevention in the purest sense. It is measures taken prior and before the “appearance of risk factors” in the community. It includes the advocacy of certain Asan, Pranayam, and meditations practices to schools, colleges, universities, sports festivals, workplaces, corporate sectors, armed forces, police personnel, medical professionals, nursing staff, bureaucrats, and public servants to prevent the future outcome of a certain disease.
2.Primary prevention-It measures taken after the appearance of risk factors in the community (like smoking, obesity, etc) and include the application of yoga, pranayama, meditation in day-to-day life.
3.Secondary prevention-It is the early diagnosis and treatment of disease. Various scientific studies have proved the beneficial effect of certain Asan, Pranayam, Kriya, and Meditation in hypertension, Diabetes mellitus (type-2), anxiety, panic disorder,s, and other illness.
4.Tertiary prevention-It is the intervention taken in the late pathogenic phase of the disease. For many terminally ill patients of cancer, meditation has proven beneficial effects on reducing cancer pain and make the patients calm and relaxed.
So it can be concluded, recommended that “YOG” is one of the most cost-effective, cheap, easily available interventions to reduce the overall morbidity and mortality in the community due to various illnesses especially due to Non-communicable and mental disorders at the local, state, country and global level. The advantage of the yoga system is that it can be practiced by anyone irrespective of caste, race, religion, and country differences. At this juncture, one word of caution is that this art of Asan, pranayama, kriya, and meditation must be learnt and understood under the guidance and supervision of well experienced and qualified YOG guru or teacher. So on the occasion of this “International Yoga day” whose theme is “Yoga for well-being” let’s create and spread the awareness about “Yoga” to live a happy and stress-free life.

“The health of the people is the foundation upon which all their happiness and all their power as a state depend”.
-Benjamin Disraeli

Law of moderation – The ultimate guide to success

“Believe nothing, no matter where you read, who said it.Even if I said it, unless it agrees with your reasoning and common sense.”

– Lord Gautam Buddha

#Buddha, #Gautam,#moderation

Basically life of Gautam Buddha is real and great source of inspiration, motivation and self help to many materialistic and spiritual seekers.His concepts, teaching and sermons are applicable in all times.They are timeless principles, practices,truth, philosophy and lessons which are clear and full of clarity as before many centuries and decades as well as in today’s modern, technical and fast moving world.Among the various principles and teaching of “Lord Gautam Buddha”,one of the core lesson was law of moderation or (Madhyam- Marg). There is limit to everything in life,which includes everything,every activity and action from morning to evening.The food, sleep,exercise,meditation, reading,use of modern gadgets,even to spiritual practices like pranayama,asan,prayer and meditation.All Religious Scriptures,Modern Medical science, Management, Psychology, Behavior science,even our ancestors are saying that everything should be at moderation or optimum level.Any excessive or diminish usage of anything is harmful and dangerous.Among the favourite disciple of Gautam Buddha,Anand was one of the sincere,dedicated and devoted follower.One day he was very much confused, perplexed and unhappy with his spiritual journey or sadhana.He meet his great Guru Lord Gautam Buddha and raised and discussed certain questions and queries. (You may also like https://scienceandinspiration.com/2020/12/19/role-of-mentor-in-achieving-goal-of-life/)

    Tathagat tried his best resolve his questions,doubts and queries.Lord Buddha answered and resolved many of his questions and queries but still he was not content and satisfied with some of answers and clarification.To clarify his doubts and confusion,saint advocated and assigned him small task.Anand was well versed and master in playing the musical instrument know as “Veena”.   

  There is great Chinese proverb:

“If I hear ,I forget;If I see,I remember;If I do,I know”.

It signify the importance of learning by doing.With reference to this example we will move ahead.Anand was highly accomplished musician.Gautam Buddha asked the anand to “slacken the strings” of instrument. Buddha then asked him to play the veena,anand replied, “how can I play veena when strings are slack?.Buddha said it’s ok,now “tighten the strings of instrument till they become taut enough to play” again saint instructed anand to play the veena, now it was having a snaping sound. ( You may like Moral of the story is that as strings of veena to be tightened at an optimum level to have melodious and tuneful music, in same way everything in life should be at moderate and optimum level to live a happy and healthy life.Lazy mind,body and soul is like slack strings of veena and overstressed mind and body is like stretched stings of veena,which produces dull note or mind stretched beyond its capacity is tensed and incapable of clear thinking.Best is mind,body and soul completely relaxed and attentive.( You may like https://scienceandinspiration.com/2020/12/19/understanding-functioning-of-brain/)

So core and important message of lord Gautam Buddha to Anand is key to happiness in life and sadhana is clear thinking and problem solving by relaxed mind,body and soul. Basically any spiritual philosophy and scientific techniques focused on or give immense stress on moderation in everything in life:food,sleep,yoga, Pranayam, meditation, exercise, walking,use of digital technology like facebook, what’s app, twitter etc.Dear friends,I think that above simple case study is not a mere a piece of information but will help and guide you in self transformation and inculcate the law of moderation( Madhyam marg),middle path in every spheres of your life.This is my opinion and thinking about “law of moderation”,tell me about your opinion and thinking…? Don’t forget to like, comment,share .Thanks for reading, sparing your precious time,bye for now and have a nice day 💐💐💐
