Vasi Yogam/Gathagatham/Siddha Yogam

The ultimate part in yoga is Vasi yogam,  AKA Siddha Yoga/Gathagatham etc. This was composed by great siddhars and it is used a short cut for Self realization. “ Vasi ” means to dwell or reside inside. The one that resides inside is the true self keeping the body and mind as instruments. Vasi Yoga comprises the process of harmonious breathing by which  we are enriching our body and mind with the energies required for health and happiness in our self. The body and mind are activated and energised by the life force called “ Prana ”.There are five different pranic energies in our being responsible for the functioning of our Gnana-indriyas and Karma-indriyas which are the faculties helping us to live in this world. A combination of lifestyle changes, Yogic Kriyas and breathing techniques harmonise the energies of our body and mind for a healthy living.  You also need a connection to the inner being through understanding and feeling of our inner energies through Meditat

Trip to India as teen was a life-changer for Steve Jobs

NEW DELHI: Steve Jobs came to India as a teenager in search of enlightenment. He returned disappointed, following a brush with lice, scabies, dysentery and a near mob thrashing after he protested at being sold watered-down buffalo milk.

As a penniless college drop-out , he would walk seven miles every Sunday to get a free meal at the Hare Krishna temple. He also retained a lifelong admiration for Mahatma Gandhi. In 1997, Apple's 'Think Different' ads, which featured his personal idols, included the Mahatma. Tough India visit led him to question many illusions Steve Jobs' trip to India was eventful, to put it mildly

  Holy Mother (Sri Sri Sarada Devi) graced the Durga Puja celebrations held at the Belur Math by her presence. To attend the Puja at Belur in 1912, she camped there for about a week. When she arrived at the gate of the Math at the close of the Bodhan ceremony (awakening of the Deity), the monks and devotees, headed by the great Swami Premananda, unhorsed the carriage and drew it through the Math grounds. On successive days hundreds of devotees made flower offerings at her feet. Swami Brahmananda worshipped her with one hundred and eight full-blown lotuses, and her devotee and disciple, Dr. Kanjilal, danced before the image of the Deity with gestures and postures like a mischievous imp, to entertain the Divine Mother, as it were. She was again present at the worship of Durga held in 1916. We get an impression of the exaltation she created by her presence, in the following extract from a letter of Swami Shivananda: ' Owing to the presence of the blessed Holy Mother a
