Converstion with Shri Shri Guruji

Postby doxyone » Mar 4th, '08, 09:27

Question: Guruji… How to control our mind?
Ans: Why should we control? Just leave it; let’s see where it is going. One day leave it to go anywhere it wants and see how it comes back to you.
Guruji Said “Let’s meditate for sometime and before that I wanted to ask, how many of you have body painssince early in the morning, raise your hand. (There
was about 25% of the crowd raising their hands) You know why? We eat the crops that are cultivated by using chemical fertilizers. This causes a lot of
diseases in our body. Do you understand? We don’t detoxify the body. To get good yield we use artificial chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Because of these
fertilizers, soil turns toxic and the produce from the soil in turn becomes toxic and our body gets toxic substances as we eat them which cause disease and
pain.
How many have hip, joint, back pains and different kinds of headaches. I don’t want you to tell me the number of head aches that you have at home!!! If we
have to get rid of all these pains and diseases, we have to go back to our traditional method of farming. We have to do natural farming, Zero budget farming low-cost, more yield, better health. So we have to take this as a revolution to the farmers. You know the white sugar is termed as white poison in western countries. As it covers the knobs of the
intestine and stops the nutrients from being absorbed by the body. The children who consume a lot of sugar are mostly lean because of lack of nutrition. If you
stop giving them sugar, they will start getting healthier. We eat a lot of sugar and reduce our body growth as well. So instead of white sugar you should
start consuming cane sugar which is in turn good for the body. It helps the liver as it has minerals. We have to know how to eat well not how to eat more.
Similarly we need to learn breathing practices to keep our body healthy and learn meditation to get peace of mind and these things are very much essential
for life. We should have knowledge and awareness on meditation, breathing practices and food. Now let us switch on to cane sugar. The only difference that you
may notice is that gulab jamuns would look much darker and jalebis would be of a different color!!! It does not matter.
After 30 -32 years everyone should take 3 Triphala tablets at night. It sets right all the three doshas, vata, pitha and kapha in the body. . It eliminates
toxins from the body. Even if there is a problem with the food, Triphala clears the stomach and helps in good elimination the next morning. It also maximizes
anti- oxidization in the body. All of you should take “Triphala” and you can see the effect in your body within 5 to 7 days. “Deva Vati” is a good cure for
amebiosis and other diseases caused by change in food and water. It is harmless and every one must carry with them wherever they go. It replaces antibiotics
like Flagyl and others. Two to three “Deva Vati” can cure fever.
In India, what ever we prepare we add turmeric in it. You know why? Because of its anti-oxidant properties
and it has medicinal value. In 1980, we called upon scientists for a conference in Delhi. When asked about
the use of turmeric, they said it is just a color pigment without any value. Today, the foreigners say
turmeric is an antioxidant and it can give immunization against Cancer and yet we do not
understand its real value. In Tamilnadu we add turmeric in the pickles, especially the lemon pickles.
Turmeric means Goddess Devi. She is incarnation of lemon, turmeric, and neem. All the three plants are
considered sacred in our country and they all give good energy to our body. If we grow lemon and tulsi in
each and every house we can have good health in our country.
You know in our country there is a shortfall in the production of pulses. We are importing nearly 40% of
the pulses and if this continues we will not have sufficient food In the future. So we have to plant
pulses in our home garden and our women can do it. My Grandmother was in Papanasam even at the age of 92
years she used to do things for herself and she had a good system of eating. Like, eating “Agathi Keerai” (A
type of green leaves) on every “Dwadesi” day ( The day after Ekadesi Fasting) and she used to take two
kinds of vegetables everyday. She had laid rules for herself and hence had a lot of energy. In the next
generation the energy level came down and now in our generation it is getting lower. One more interesting
thing you know our “Idly” is considered to be the most nutritious food in the World. Because it contains
carbohydrates, proteins, enzymes, fats, amino acids and fiber.
Every one should consume ghee. Ghee helps the body to absorb nutrients. If I start talking on food I can go
on for hours together. “Idly” is said to be the complete food it is a happy thing to know don’t you
think so.

Question: Global Warming is considered as a serious
concern today. What is your opinion on this?
Ans: Use less of refrigerator and plant more trees.

Question: What is the difference between Guru and God?
Ans: You now tell me who is Guru and who is God, then
I will tell you the difference. We are the one’s who
give meaning for the words. Knowledge is Guru. In one
whose life knowledge is also an integral part he is a
guru. Love is guru. If in one’s life love and soul is
inseparable, he is a Guru.

Question: What all should we do to satisfy God?
Ans:: We are not doing these to satisfy God but to
satisfy ourselves. God is always “Nithya tripthan” (He
is an embodiment of contentment) When doing Puja
Meditation is always important. There is no use of
doing Puja without meditation.

Question: What is the difference between Family
affection and God’s love?
Ans:: Why do you want to compare? They all have their
own places. God’s love is present everywhere.

Question: How did you seek God?
Ans: You read the books “Guru of Joy”. “Celebrating
Silence” is a book you should read. You should also
read the Tamil version of Intimate note to the sincere
seeker.

Question: Now-a-days youngsters in software industry,
to reduce their work stress seek discotheques and bars
unaware of the destruction it may cause to their
lives. What is your advice to correct them?
Ans: Nothing, just bring them and make them sit in the
course. They themselves will know what to do.

Question: What is the difference between a disciple
and a devotee?
Ans: Disciples come after knowing the knowledge, they
are in the head. The devotees come due to their love
and are in the heart. Both of them are needed.
Devotees can become disciples and vice versa. And both
the qualities are together, this makes a perfect
human. If they are doing meditation and yoga, these
qualities will emerge on their own.

Question: Why should we follow the traditions and
cultures? Why should we do puja?

Ans : Puja is something which gives us fullness. It is
something that which comes out of a fulfilled heart.
If it’s a small Puja people can relish it and if there
is involvement there is happiness. If we do the Puja
for 4-5 hours, people who are not interested in it
find it boring and they lose their interest. There is
one Gyana Gaandam in Agaama. If the pundits narrate
Gyana Gaandam with Karma Gaandam, it would be
interesting. This would provide an attachment in it,
where as doing Karma Gaandam only makes it monotonous.
As you go into meditation, idol worship is not needed.
But it is also not necessary to tell that idol worship
is not needed. You should not be against it as well.
Let it be there but gradually mind just deviates off
from it. We see it only outside but God (Kada-vul) is
something that lies inside. To see God we have to make
an inward transition from outside to inside and
meditation helps in it. As a result of going to many
temples people start getting confused between which
Gods to worship. It’s enough to worship a single God.

Question: What position do you give for the atheists
in the world?
Ans : Where there is atheism in the beginning there
would be good spiritualism later. There should be no
worry about it. You can go from atheism to
spiritualism. Just like how we can be a spiritualist
from a theist, we can become a spiritualist from
atheist as well. To be a true atheist is the toughest
thing in the whole world. If you call yourself an
atheist you would feel deep in you there is something
that you don’t know yet. To say that something is not
there, you need to know everything. The moment you
admit that there is something that you don’t know,
that minute you cease to be an atheist. When you
accept that there might be some things and some
concepts that I don’t know, then you cease to be an
atheist.

why almost all women have many handbags

Postby rstu111 » Mar 10th, '09, 14:35

Handbags have been a good accessory in completing women's outfit. There are a wide variety of handbags that come in different styles, designs, materials, colors and sizes. These accessories have great significance because of their versatility features. Both men and women carry bags, however, it is just well-known that women use them more than men. Furthermore, handbags are also use to create a fashion statement. Different designs and styles are born each year. Celebrities and popular TV icons are often the first to try trendy handbags to complete their looks.
Different variety of handbags were basically designed for different purposes. And to make it widely available to everyone, such fashion accessories are now available in different variety of designs, styles and colors to incorporate with different wardrobes. This is the reason why almost all women have 3-5 different types of handbags in their closet
