Scientific importance of getting up in Brahmamuhurta

At this time, the amount of oxygen (pranavayu) in the atmosphere is highest, which is important for the purification of the lungs. By getting pure air, the mind and brain also remain healthy. The air flowing at this time is said to be nectar. Waking up during the Brahma Muhurta and taking a walk provides life-giving energy to the body.

This time is also said to be the best for study because when we wake up in the morning after resting at night, there is energy and freshness in the body and mind as well. As the oxygen level is higher in the morning, it provides extra energy to the brain, due to which the study things are easily grasped by our memory.

Chanting: A Tool of Spiritual Fitness


Chanting is a more than 3000-year-old Vedic practice that deepens the connection with the source and with those around us. It promotes a feeling of connection to surroundings that includes yourself and others. A powerful sense of oneness occurs during the process of chanting together, a feeling that has been lost in our busy lifestyle, an individualistic approach. If you are unable to chant, play a recorded chanting on your phone or laptop in the background, follow it and meditate on this sound to get similar results.



Here are some FAQs on how to begin.


1) How do I start chanting?  


a) Chanting is for everyone -


You may not have a good voice or you may have an inner critical part that says - you don't have a singing voice. Still, you can chant, so chanting is for everyone. Remember, when you chant, you interact with your surroundings. It can be a natural way of assimilation with your spirituality.


b) Start at home


Start by chanting at home, alone, with a recording. When you feel comfortable start chanting in a group. 

 

c) Musical instrument / Bluetooth mic.


You may use musical and electronic devices for a better experience. It's natural to be a little anxious, and excited when starting something new. The cool thing about chanting is that as soon as you start the mantras start working on you. Before you know it you'll feel relaxed, open and energized. 


2) How can I find mantras to chant?  


Chant for exactly what you want. Typically, the best way to find your mantra is to ask yourself what it is you need and then search mantra for it. Let the deficit guide you instead of being a weakness but don't become too attached to one mantra you think is right. It's important to try new mantras on and see how they fit.


3) Which are the main things, I should follow for a better result of chanting?  


Chanting is bound by adherence to 6 rules

🔖 Varṇa (pronunciation)

🔖 Svara (chanting notes)

🔖 Mātrā (duration) 

🔖 Balam (force)

🔖 Sāma (continuity) 

🔖 Santāna (conjugation)


4) How does chanting help to maintain my Spiritual Fitness?


In the modern digital world, it doesn't matter in which culture or religion you were born. We all need to develop a routine for Spiritual Fitness and follow it to see, how our body responds to make it work for us, that is a lot like physical fitness. Not only does it improve our cognitive health, and make us more altruistic, but chanting can help improve our blood pressure and mood, even reducing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and overall stress.


The study of the relationship between the brain and spiritual practices such as chanting has been given wide attention in modern times. The good thing is that you need not be an adherent to a specific religion to reap the benefits of chanting. It is rooted in Hinduism and Buddhism but still open to everyone regardless of their faith practices like yoga. 


5) How long should I chant for?


When we first start chanting, even 15 minutes can feel quite long. Of course, there are crucial moments in life when we are facing a huge problem or challenging situation and feel that we want to chant more. That’s great. How much you chant is completely up to you; feel free to do what you think feels right.

Dairy Addiction of Lord Krishna is a fictional


 "The only way you can conquer me is through love and there I am gladly conquered.” - Lord Krishna


The story of Krishna is many thousands of years old. The story of being a dairy addict goes against the fundamentals of Hindu philosophy in which an Avatar incarnates to uphold and protect the Dharma. 

Image result for Govardhan  blogspot.com"

It is nowhere mentioned in any valid texts that Lord Krishna consumed milk or milk products. Krishna’s true vegan nature is found in the 9th Skandha 26th verse of the Bhagavad Gita, which states that the appropriate offerings to God are a flower, a leaf, fruit or water; all are vegan offerings. 


पत्रं पुष्पं फलं तोयं यो मे भक्त्या प्रयच्छति |
तदहं भक्त्युपहृतमश्नामि प्रयतात्मन: ||
patraṁ puṣhpaṁ phalaṁ toyaṁ yo me bhaktyā prayachchhati
tadahaṁ bhaktyupahṛitam aśhnāmi prayatātmanaḥ

The idea of a dairy addict likewise goes against Krishna’s teachings on detachment. The entire dairy industry, giant milk cooperative movements and traditional cow breeding culture in the countryside of India are the forces behind keeping alive such stories as sacred for so many years.

The Hindu Scriptures are divided into categories that include Veda, Puranas and Upanishads etc. In which, Puranas are folktales. Folktales are very important to Hindu culture because these are the actual application of our Hindu philosophy. The folktales of a lactarian culture do not acknowledge anything but lactarian history and behaviour. The Krishna Puranas integrated into the Srimad Bhāgavatam when it finally was written as a text by Vyasadeva.

Ad-made Spiritual Guru?


The daily video gurus, TV babas, astrologers, past life analysts and many other ad-made ‘Healers & Sidhi holders’, are all advocates of false spiritualities as they make us fearful about our future and present by making assumptions and predictions based on epic stories. They are seeding their business through mass media, the more you consume their catching content on your TV or Phone, the more you believe in them blindly.



The spending of your hard-earned money and precious time in their well-established organizations make you a customer rather than a spiritual person. The up and down including situational events in life make us feel powerless and in no control over our life, hence causing us to rely on the solutions given by them, and leaving us dependent on their expertise as we follow tradition to resist self-education.

A True Soulmate

You are not reading this post because you just want to date someone who fits your preference or you like to engage in a discussion on topics such as #psychology and #relationships. However, no matter whatever the thoughts you are having, that's a little more practical. Because it's driven by yourself. Well, whatever it is called – we all accept that the subject of #love and #relationships are as big as our #imagination, although they also have a very practical side to them. It can be really fun to #fantasize about finding your one true #soulmate. Also, it can be a great change while #breakingup from your #married partner and then living with someone else who matches your current preference. This is the right track when your #reality matches to practicality all the while pursuing your goals on a non-traditional path of the #spiritual journey in life.

आप इस पोस्ट को इसलिए नहीं पढ़ रहे हैं क्योंकि आप बस किसी ऐसे व्यक्ति को डेट करना चाहते हैं जो आपकी पसंद के अनुकूल हो या आप #मनोविज्ञान और #रिश्तों जैसे विषयों पर चर्चा में शामिल होना चाहते हैं। हालाँकि इससे कोई फर्क नहीं पड़ता कि आप किन विचारों से गुजर रहे हैं यह थोड़ा अधिक व्यावहारिक है क्योंकि यहाँ आप खुद से प्रेरित है। खैर इसे जो भी कहा जाए - हम सभी स्वीकार करते हैं कि #प्रेम और रिश्तों का विषय हमारी कल्पना जितना बड़ा है। हालाँकि उनका एक बहुत ही व्यावहारिक पक्ष भी है। अपने एक सच्चे हमसफ़र को खोजने के बारे में कल्पना करना वास्तव में मज़ेदार हो सकता है। इसके अलावा यह एक बड़ा बदलाव हो सकता है जब आप अपने #विवाहित साथी से अलग होकर फिर किसी और के साथ रहना चाहते हैं जो आपकी वर्तमान के पसंद से मेल खाता हो। यह सही रास्ता है जब जीवन में #आध्यात्मिक यात्रा के गैर-पारंपरिक पथ पर अपने लक्ष्यों का पीछा करते हुए आपकी वास्तविकता व्यावहारिकता से मेल खाती है।
