Master Saleem singing Sajni ho…

Lyrics: Sajni ho, Master Saleem

Ishq tere ne hame khoob nachaaya, mar gaye ham hai rabba

Ishq tere ne sare aam lutaaya, mar gaye ham hai rabba

Ishq tere ne ghar-baar chhudaaya, mar gaye ham hai rabba

Ishq tere ne hame yu tarpaaya, mar gaye hai rabba

Sajni ho… More...

Star fruit tree

The Star fruit tree! The Star fruit, Carambola or Amrak is very tasty in fruit salads. They make a beautiful decoration of the salad when you cut it into stars. Those stars are also very tasty and decorative in tea. They are sweet-sour but less sour than the lemon.

In Vrindavan’s Banke Bihari bazar, there is a street stall which sells not easily found sour fruit: in a salad or on their own: Star fruit, Tamarind, wild ber, to name a few.

How to be a Karmayogi

Do you ask anything from your children in return for what you have given them? It is your duty to work for them, and there the matter ends. In whatever you do for a particular person, a city, or a state, assume the same attitude towards it as you have towards your children — expect nothing in return.

Fruit giving tree, a karmayogi Be a non-attached giver, a Karmayogi

If you can invariably take the position of a giver, in which everything given by you is a free offering to the world, without any thought of return, then will your work bring you no attachment. Attachment comes only where we expect a return.

~ Swami Vivekananda

Man tikda tikda tik jaana har har da simran karaya kar

Hatha Yoga Pradipika ch 3. About Mudras

1. As the chief of the snakes is the support of the earth with all the mountains and forests on it, so all the Tantras (Yoga practices) rest on the Kundalini, the Vertebral column.

2. When the sleeping Kundalini awakens by favor of a guru, then all the lotuses (in the six chakras or centers) and all the knots are pierced through.

3. Susumna (Sunya Padavi) becomes a main road for the passage of Prana, and the mind then becomes free from all connections (with its objects of enjoyments) and Death is then evaded.

4. Susumna, Sunya, Padavi, Brahma Randhra, Maha Patha, Sambhavi, Madhya Marga, are names of one and the same thing.

5. In order, therefore, to awaken this goddess, who is sleeping at the entrance of Brahma Dwara (the great door), mudras should be practiced well.


6. Maha Mudra, Maha Bandha, Maha Vedha, Khechari, Uddiyana Bandha, Mula Bandha, Jalandhara Bandha. More...
