Keeping The Mind Busy How And What To Think
Thinking cannot solve anything; thinking cannot give us permanent pleasure. It is just - in a way - a waste of time.
बड़ी गुणकारी हैं तुलसी

मन का गिलास भरें..
कहते हैं जीवन सकारात्मक तरीके से जीना चाहिये, हम सभी यह जानते भी हैं, करना चाहते भी हैं परन्तु कई बार किसी के व्यवहार से, कभी परिस्थिति के अचानक आ जाने से, कभी शारीरिक तौर पर, कभी मानसिक तौर पर, कभी गुस्से के कारण हम परेशान होकर सकारात्मक नहीं रह पाते व कब नकारात्मक हो जाते हैं समझ ही नहीं पाते और मन का भरा गिलास खाली होता जाता है।
भविष्य में अपने को कैसा देखना चाहते हैं - आज तय करें
आप आज जहाँ भी हैं, कैसा भी काम कर रहे हैं। आज अपने जीवन के लक्ष्य को पर विचार करें व तय करें कि आप 20 साल बाद कहाँ पहुँचना चाहते हैं। यह तय करने के पश्चात उस पर अपनी योजना भी बना लें, पर योजना बनाने से ही कुछ नहीं होगा उस पर अमल भी करना होगा। कई बार हम योजना पर पूरी तरह चल नहीं पाते। तो जानिये कि किस तरह से काम करें -
तटस्थता (detachment) से स्पष्टता बढ़ती है।
कभी-कभी जिन चीज़ों से व्यक्ति को लगाव हो जाता है वह उन्हें चाहकर भी नहीं छोड़ पाता बल्कि जितना संभव हो सके उसके करीब रहने की कोशिश करता है। वास्तव में इस स्थिति में वस्तु को अच्छे से देख नहीं पाते हालांकि हम उसके बहुत पास होते हैं।
यम यानि क्या - अहिंसासत्यास्तेय ब्रह्मचर्यापरिग्रहा यमाः ।।2.30।।
सूत्रार्थ - अहिंसा, सत्य, अस्तेय, ब्रह्मचर्य, अपरिग्रह ये पाँच यम हैं, यानि दूसरों को दुःख न देना, सत्य बोलना, दूसरों की वस्तुओं या धन आदि का अपहरण न करना, ब्रह्मचर्य से रहना तथा संचय वृत्ति का न होना यम कहलाता है।

48 Days And New Habits: The Promising Period Of Mandalam
In many cultures, the idea of Mandalam, which is a period of 48 days, holds significant importance. It is believed that to ensure a new habit is fully integrated into your system, one must practice the habit consistently for one Mandalam. This concept has been passed down through generations and is grounded in the belief that it takes 48 days for a new behaviour to become a natural part of one's routine.
'No' Is The New 'Yes': Learning To Be Firm On One's Decision
Perhaps no other word is associated with negativity as much as the word "No". It cancellation etc., all having strong negative connotations.
In this article we discuss a multipurpose herb that can be used to do everything from adding flavour to Pakoras to making laundry smell better!
Avidya to Vidya: Unlearn to relearn
The Yoga Institute wanted us to contemplate on our Avidya. I was amused. I had pursued twenty years of formal education - my pride, which had secured me a very well-paying job back in 1996. Could I have Avidya at all?
Life Can Wait To Happen: When change is inevitable
Dawn is established only after the darkest hour of the night. A seemingly unending journey in the tunnel disappears as soon light is sighted at the end.
....and then it Happens! - The path to self-realization
My colleagues and I always had a Mquestion, or rather a confusion, in our minds. And we kept searching for answers for the first six months when we joined The Yoga Institute.
Aging Parent as Cost Centre - Returns on investment are hard to come by
Shravan Kumar carried his parents in a basket to every pilgrim site in India. This story, which forms part of the Ramayana, is told by every Indian parent to illustrate what a good child, or rather good son, is supposed to be. But reality is often the opposite. The Takkala Jataka tells the story of the Buddha who at a young age starts digging a grave for his parents, after he observes his father digging a grave for his grandparents, while they are still alive. Of course, the Jataka, like modern soap operas, blames the daughter-in-law for the cruelty of the son.
New Year - 2024: Reflecting on the old before embracing the new
The New Year is waiting in the wings, just about to be ushered in with a lot of fanfare and celebrations. It is another milestone in our lives, with the completion of one year and the beginning of another. Let us take a few moments to review the year gone by.
Svadhyaya - Using the Antarayas for our very own SWOT analysis
It is this time of the year again when we charged with the energy of the New Year jump into all kinds of resolutions regarding what we want to improve in our life. These are usually short-lived because we are either too ambitious and reaching for the stars in our goals or because we do not go about integrating them in a systematic manner.
Simple Rules for a Healthy Life
Start the New Year with these - When I joined the training at The Yoga Institute, way back in 1966, I was eating without knowledge and discrimination. Anything and everything would do until I heard a talk by Shri Yogendraji, the Founder of The Yoga Institute, \"All matter including nutrients, are in three stages of evolution. The calcium in the farm ground can be likened to inertia/Tamas; the calcium in the bones of an ox, likened to Rajas, and the same in the bones of a sage likened to Sattva.\"
When to Do Our Duty: How not to slip into Adharma
There are many stories in the Vedas, in the Upanishads and in the Puranas from which we learn that human beings have to do their duty. This concept of duty is a very strong one. We are told that while carrying out our duty, we should not have emotions like anger, hatred, worry or unhappiness within us.
Aishwarya - Striving for perfection
We will discuss a word that we possibly should know: Aishwarya i.e. perfection. This is one of the four aspects of our personality. We possess what is considered righteous conduct (Dharma), we possess knowledge (Jnana) and we can also give up things (Vairagya). And the fourth thing that we possess is the capacity for perfection.
