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

I want to know God’s thought ……..the rest are details.
– Albert Einstein
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 meet many Indian yogis and great saint and have taken deep interest in Indian yoga philosophy. From that onwards many country 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 result. What happen ultimately on long run is 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 basic steps of Patangali yog sutra. According to Patangali yog sutra “Meditation” is step No. 7 in yoga philosophy. When school boy of seventh standard cannot be taught calculus of twelth class. In the same way new comer 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, Pratayahar,Dharana, Dhayan and finally samadhi. Now I will try to explain each step with its meaning in details.

A man is bundle of thought and these thought are reflected in his behavior, attitude, personality and how he treat other human beings especially his subordinates. The concept of Yog sutra is to move from journey of outer materialistic world to inner world of silence and piece. It’s basically journey from consciouness to superconsciouness.Its basically travelling from thoughtfulness to thoughtless and increasing self -awareness.
The mind is collection of thoughts. So as long as thought exist, the mind exist. But when the thought stop, the mind dissolves.Patanjali described this state as state of super-consciouness. What remains is pure consciouness 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 superconsciounes.Application of these fundamentals is most essential in life for the one who wants to progress in yoga. These 8 limbs of the 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 steps of patangali yog sutra.
1.YAM (RESTRAINTS) -The meaning of yam in vernacular language is “ Nigahra”.In English difficult to find exact word but word near to 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 by means of our mind (thought), Speech and our Actions (karma). when you study the life history of Indian yogis, you will notice one specific features in their worship was that many times they encountered many wild animals like lion, snake etc during their Sadhana*( spiritual practice of meditation in jungle) in the forest or jungle. But none of the wild animals have ever targeted these saints in their journey to eternal piece. Patanjali in his yoga sutra clearly 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 wild animals have ever harm them.
2. Satya- (truthfulness) (The power of Truth)
3. Asteya- (Non-stealing)
4. Brahamcharya- (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 is 5 Niyams
1. Socch- purity of action, speech, mind
2. Santosh- (self-satisfaction)
3. Tap- Austerity, discipline
4. Swadhaya- self study, study of scriptures
5. Ishvara pranidhana -surrender to GOD, one of the methods of kriya yog, 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-consciouness, super-conscious absorption; trance
Some of the important key notes
• 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 difficult and challenging part of yoga philosophy is that it is 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 proper direction. Although difficult to get real guru but still they are there for true and dedicated followers or discipline.
• The Real siddh yogis and masters of yoga never highlight themselves. They work silently and most of the time they are away from public and publicity and don’t have any personal and professional aspirations and don’t work for commercial gains.
• To keep body healthy and for spiritual upliftment, yoga has a marvelous and powerful role, so start learning and practicing Yoga under the guidance of experienced yogi.

Dear friend,
Welcome to my blog, as my blog theme is “Science, spiritual, yoga, meditation and inspirational thinking”. Today I will going to talk about one of the most important aspect of human life i.e. Happiness and Stress. As we know that life is full of Ups and Downs. Our life can be compared with ECG (Electrocardiogram) which has crest and trough. Crest can be compared with happiness in life and trough can be equated with the stressful situations in life. As you carefully study the ECG, both crest and trough are essential for survival and existence and a plain line is merely indicates a lifeless condition or death. So today I will going to share you about some of the important tips on stress management.
Stress is inevitable part of life and everyone has to face it.
How to do stress management in day to day life and have happiness…..?
Volumes and volumes of books, journals and online literature talks about stress but very few sources gives an idea, method and techniques about how to overcome and tackle the stress in life. Some of the valuable tips and important keys that we can use in our day to day life to counter stress and have happiness in life are.
 Time Management-Time is like river which flows continuously without waiting for anyone. It’s like money which is to be invested smartly otherwise it will go wasted. Whatever the task you want to accomplish whether it’s short-term or long term task, we have to allocate the time accordingly and have to complete the assignment in give time limit. Smart and Meticulous time management will eliminate and exterminate most of problems created by day to day stress.

 Prioritize by Organizing, Streamlining, Economizing and Contributing its acronym for POSEC-Recognize the important goal and task of your life, identify your values, set your priorities.

 Role of Physical Exercise and sports -One must perform some amount of physical exercise.E.g walking and cycling. Walking is one of the best exercises to relieve day to day stress. It is scientifically proved that because of walking there is release of various excitatory neurotransmitters like epinephrine,nor-ephinephrine,dopamine and serotonine.Which elevates the mood and it will also give some sense of completion of task. It will also improve systemic circulation, controls blood sugar, blood pressure and help to reduce weight.

 Try to give some small levels of Philanthropic services/Donate some hours of your life for self less social services without any thing expecting back -Sometimes it’s difficult to do big task of social services or it is not feasible. But all of us can definitely do some sort of small assignment, activities and task that will surly helps the society and on long run it will help us to counter stress. For example volunteering a multi-diagnostic camp or blood donation camp in your area or giving your humanitarian services in natural calamities like earth quake, cyclone, flood etc.

 The concept behind this task is that when you help others by means of donations, volunteering or providing your expertise services there is feeling of happiness in your mind and a sense of satisfaction in your deep heart and surely you will get positive vibrations from nature that would encourages you and makes you happy in life and relieves your tension. So Do something for others who cannot repay you in cash and kind.
The cosmic world operates through dynamic law of give and take or you can say a law of exchange. In physics there is most fundamental laws of motion known’s as Newton’s law of motion. As Newton’s second law of motion say that “Every action in this world has equal and opposite reaction”. In the same way giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. By doing philanthropic activity you are raising your own self-esteem and getting more positive vibrations.
 Observe one day fast- one day fast is recommended in many religious text but now medical science has documented and proved its beneficial effect on health.
 Change is the rule of life and Try to accept changes-Meaning is that change is inevitable in our life and it is constant in nature. Train your mind to welcome changes that are occurring in your life. Try to accept new situation, circumstances, persons and places. As quickly you accept the change ,it would be easy to counter stress in your life.

 Don’t try to have control over the situations, circumstances and persons- just try your best and then leave it to god. Because more you try to control your external circumstances on long run they will have control over you. You can only control one person in your life and that is only you and yourself.

 One must remind them self that this world is full of selfish people. They do not praise others without any selfish motive. This world is full of a person who shows their different color according to their need and circumstances. People may praise you today because of your power, position, achievement, social status; background etc.But as soon as you lose these materialistic achievement, people would start criticizing you. Do not crave for publicity or try to highlight yourself. Do your job honestly and leave rest to god.
 Do not be jealous-Many times we experience jealous in our life. Many times we work harder than our colleagues in our company or business but they get promotions, we do not. Should we develop the attitude of jealous? We must remember one thing in life is that, law of karma is most essential in tackling such circumstances or situations. Bhagvat Geeta say that “everbody’s life is shaped by his previous sanchit karma, that has now become his destiny”. Nothing can be gained by criticizing or blaming others for your hard luck. Do your best and rest of things and outcome should be leave it to god.
 Understand and accept your limitations-Try to accept your responsibilities according to your capacity and know your limitations.

Concepts of Group Dynamics

“Before becoming an astronaut, I was a helicopter pilot, but realized my skills, got trained and entered the field of space engineering. I appeal you to know your skills, your comfort zone and your position in the organization to make you successful and you will also become an asset to your organization. You never get nervous when you are in the field of your choice. I was never nervous during my flights into space…During my first flight; I was a crew member with a seven-member team. During the second one, I was the team leader and had members from Europe, Japan with different thinking and taking them along, was my task in itself”

Dear friend,
Welcome to my blog, “Science, spiritual and inspirational thinking”. Today I will going to talk about one of the most important aspect of human life i.e. Principles and Practice of working in Team.

What happens when there is an event or function in your house or organization? All of us divide the work among ourselves and wok in groups. Our family, friends and relatives work as a large group and achieve the goal. The success or failure of any task depends on the way the group coordinates and works. Many times in the life we have to work as team leader and many times as team member, but in both cases we are working for the common cause.

You are well versed with the story of rabbit and tortoise. Once upon a time a tortoise and rabbit had a racing. They agreed on the route and started their journey. We know tortoise won the race and moral of the story was slow and steady wins the race. But the story doesn’t end here and read the further extension of this story. Rabbit did the careful introspection about the event and realized that over-confidence and carelessness were the reasons for his defeat. So he challenged the tortoise for second time and won the race and crux of the story is fast and consistent will always beat the slow and steady. Now the turtle perceived his limitations and thought that he could never win, if the route was the way it was. Now he again challenged hare but on a slightly different path. The hare and tortoise begins their race from starting line. Hare not to be overconfident ran all through at top speed until he came across to a broad river. He couldn’t go ahead because the finish line was on other side of river. In the meantime, grabbing the opportunity, turtle trundled along, got into the river, swam across and reaches up to the finish line and won the race. Moral of the story is that, this is where you have to accept and identify your strength and limitations. However story still doesn’t end here. This is the last and most interesting version of the story. In the process of racing so many times, the rabbit and tortoise became a very good friend and decided to run the race as TEAM. This time hare carried the tortoise on the land and the tortoise carried the hare in the water. They reach the finish line together with greater satisfaction and piece. Moral of the story is that when you work as team, chances of winning the race or battle are very much high. This story is perfect example of situational leadership, which means that according to need of situation and circumstances, you have to handover the leadership to appropriate person and keep aside our ego. Another Good message of the story is that when individually strong and brilliant mind come together and share their ideology, success is inevitable.
What is TEAM?
A group of people working together in an organization (It may be a corporate organization, Government organization or small firm or company) is known as TEAM. The Behavior and nature of Team members is such that there is interdependency and one member alone cannot undertake all the activity, task or service.
What does working in TEAM is so CRUCIAL?
As in any game, every team player has a crucial role to play. At any corporate organization, company or government firm, not a single team member can undertake and fulfill the role of other members.
If we apply this concept to cricket team, then we notice that in a team there are 11 players, there is captain who makes on the spot field decisions and much of the success of the team depends on his presence of mind, discretion, wisdom and intelligence.

cricket team

Image credit- Google images Indian cricket team.
There are some players who have mastery in bating and then there are others who have specialization in bowling. Along with it there are good wicket keepers and fielders whose role cannot be underestimated in anyway. When team is bowling to have wickets of opponents, only one player can bowl at a time. But the other members of team support him by good fielding and wicket keeping. A weakness in any spheres leads to suffering of entire team.
In the same way in any organization, role of each and every team members is crucial and every element of team play an important role according to need of situation and circumstances. A lucane in any area lead to overall decline in team effectiveness and performance.
Just as a cricket team aims to win the match, in the same way any team in any organization (whether private or corporate) is established to carry out its task in such a manner as to have a winning situation at the end of day, month or year. Taking the reference of sports metaphor again, each individual sport team in a country is striving for better performance at national and international level to increase country’s creditability and reputation. The message is that hard-work, input and performance of each team member is ultimately enhancing and raising the image of organization at state, national and international level.

In the Human resource management Team effectiveness plays an important role. It means degree to which a team accomplishes it goal, targets and objectives. It also reflects the quality and quantity of services delivered to clients. Team effectiveness also depends on the on the performance, will and zeal of individual team members and also depends on dynamics and progress of team in multi- dimension spheres.

Life lessons from a Guided missile……………………!(Image credit-arianspace.com)

“People keep on blaming their circumstances for what they are! I don’t believe in circumstances! I believe that the people who get on this world …..Are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want….and if they don’t find them, make them!”
George Bernard Shaw
A guided missile has an inbuilt system known as “Homing Device” to reach at the target. From its launching to end this system guide the missile to its entire trajectory. During its journey to path when missile gets slightly off the course, or takes the wrong path or moves in erroneous direction, then its “Homing Device” guidance system makes the necessary correction to get it back on charted course, so that it will hit the target. So guidance system corrects and rectifies its error while moving forward toward the goal.

Image credit-pinterest.com
Life lessons learnt and Moral of the story…….!
• One must have a Goal, i.e. you should be target and objective oriented.
o One must have specific goals in life and must head and lead for it.
• When one is moving towards the target, one will definitely make errors as just guided missile does

Image credi-visualstudiomazine.com

• One must recognize this error and accept it as part of life journey. Otherwise, one will not know where and when the rectification and correction required to nullify this error.
• Having accepted and admitted the error which has miss guided you to goal; one must simply correct it, and get back to charted course.
• Error making, its recognization, and finally correcting it, is simple procedure of going ahead and moving forward in the journey of life and accurately reaching at the target, so your life journey is similar to trajectory and pathway of missile.
• Like missile, we all have our own “Homing Device” system known as personal guidance programme which may include company of good friends, advice from parents,Meditation,yoga or prayer, Reading inspirational and spiritual books, Doing your own SWOT (S-strenghth,W-weakeness,O-opportunity,T-threat) analysis and other positive activities and task that guides on way of life.

Image credit-youtube.com

• Have a target in life. One your main Goal. Some people have many goals in their life and as a result of which their energy is channelized in different direction and that leads to confusion and dilemma. So have a one single goal in your life, so that your 100 percent is channelized in one, single direction and not in multiple directions.
• Always keep eagle eye’s and be vigilant and self aware about your personal guidance programme or your software and always move in correct pathway or trajectory.
• Always go ahead and don’t stop, confused and hesitate for fear of making mistakes and error.
• Your journey to life is like a riding bicycle. While riding the cycle you can surely and easily correct the direction in which you want to move but if you stop, then you will lose the balance and fall.

Image credit-jnyintheclassroom.org

• Have a constant attention over your mistakes
• Admit and accept the error as part of life game and as soon as they come to your notice correct them immediately.
 You can set your personal guidance programme to achieve your targets:
• It’s like a supercomputer. What you feed the details of your goal into your mind.
• Your sub-consciouness mind starts creating and following your goal and has extra-ordinary will and zeal to help you in achieving your goal.
• Creator has given the immense power and zeal to reach your goal, just relax, and move surely and confidently forward.
• The personal guidance programme works on the principles of “Visualization”. And “mental image” of our goal will make the system to guide and move forward towards the goal.
• If you feel above blog is inspirational, motivational and has elevated your will and zeal then do share this link with other friends on what’s app,facebook,twitter,linkdin,tumbler,path and E-mail. Please do needful.
Thanks
Ok friends by for now and keep your personal guidance system active and go ahead in life.
With warm wishes
Namaste and by for now………..

Meaning of association in correct sense by swamI vivekananda

*Beautiful explanation by Swami Vivekananda*:Explaining the meaning of ‘Association’ he said:..“A rain drop from the sky: if it is caught by clean hands, is pure enough for drinking. If it falls in the gutter, its value drops so much that it can’t be used even for washing your feet. If it falls on a hot surface, it will evaporate… If it falls on a lotus leaf, it shines like a pearl and finally, if it falls on an oyster, it becomes a pearl…The drop is the same, but its existence & worth depends on whom it is associated with.”…Always be associated with people who are good at heart..You will experience your own inner transformation”…

Send this to all people with a beautiful heart

whom you wish to be associated with….

Layman people are most of the time confused with the terminology Yoga. But Yoga means combination of Pranayam, Asan and Meditation. How do Yoga, Pranayam, Asana and Meditation would help to counter the stress? Before looking at the answer lets 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 is 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 results in increase in the concentration of oxygen in blood, there are many anti-oxidants like Vitamin A,D,E,K but among them oxygen itself is best anti-oxidant which delays degenerative changes and prolonged youth. Doing Pranayam for longer duration there is activation of autonomic nervous system of body (i.e.vagus nerve-which has calm down effect) which results in control of Blood Pressure, Diabetes and bronchial asthma. There is decrease in the concentration of stress chemical (hormone) cortisol in blood noticed and more important among these is there is release of various relaxing neurotransmitters (e.g.melatonin, dopamine) in brain observed during meditation. There is also positive behavior change and increase self awareness recognized in people regularly practicing Pranayam and meditation. So person can easily handle psychological stress at 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 learnt under the supervision of experienced 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.

Taking the lessons from us, many countries of western world has recognized its importance and has incorporated in its life style.

The most important and positive advantage of this system is that it can be practiced by anyone irrespective of any race, religion, cast and country and without any harm or side effects. Finally last but not least stress and happiness are two sides of same coin and Yoga is most cost effective, scientific and efficient remedy for relieving stress in present day life.

₹7 !

The Nobel Laureate Prof. C. V. Raman after retirement wished to open a Research Institute in Bangalore.

So he gave an advertisement in the newspapers for recruiting three physicists.

Lots of eager Scientists applied thinking that even if they were not selected, they would at least get an opportunity to meet the Nobel Laureate.

In the preliminary selection, five candidates were selected and the final interview was to be taken by Prof. C V Raman himself.

Three were selected out of the five.

Next day Prof. Raman was taking a walk and found one young man waiting to meet him.

He realized that it was the same man who was not selected.

The Prof. asked him what was the problem and he replied that there was no problem at all, but after finishing the interview the office had paid him ₹7 extra than his claim and he wanted to return it.

But because the accounts had closed, they could not take back the amount and asked him to enjoy.

The man said that it is not right for him to accept the money which did not belong to him.

Prof. C V Raman told him, so you wish to return the ₹7 and he took the money from him.

After going few steps forward the Prof. asked the young man to meet him the next day at 10.30 am. The man was happy that he would get an opportunity to meet the great man again.

When he met the Prof. next day the Nobel Laureate told the young man “son, you failed in the Physics test but you have passed the honesty test. So I have created another post for you”.

The young man was surprised and very happy to join.

Later on he too became a Nobel Laureate in 1983. This young man was *Prof. Subrahmanyan Chandrashekhar*(US Citizen of Indian Origin)

He has written a book on how the seven rupees changed his life.

*This was how Honesty made a Great Scientist*.

What is lacking in Talent can most often be made up for, with Hard work, guidance and help from others, BUT, what is lacking in Character and Values can’t be made up for with anything Ever.

Which is why Einstein said, “ *Don’t try to be a person of Success, but always be a Person of Value* “.
