 How can you tell if you are growing on the path?
There are many signs, but to me one sign is the most important.

Neither an enlightened
Nor a wise
Nor a yogi
I am

But for sure
they  live in me
and you too
Whom only a blind can see.

“You are searching for the third eye, but first you need to loose the two”

 

The Most Beautiful!

Wanting to marry
the most beautiful
a king searched
and found one
He said to her 
“My search is over and done 
you are the one”

Day and night
He would keep her
 in his sight
Looking at her face
with happiness,
his heart would race

Within two years
and six days
the beauty waned
they parted  ways  

He found
another one 
This time, for sure
 the most beautiful hun


But again
in less than a year
She wasn’t the expected beauty
it was crystal clear

This repeated
many times
Rising in his kingdom
were severe crimes

In his right eye
sat sorrow & fear
 In his left eye
 always a tear 

He felt deceived
angry and sad 
the world looked ugly
all was bad

He blamed all
tensed his fist
he wanted something
that didn’t exist.


Such is the state of a seeker who wanders around searching for a perfect path, a perfect master, and a perfect God.
Imperfection is of the past, which infact is not there. A yogi lives in the perfection of the moment. 

 

God is most beautiful
only if you see beauty
 in ugly also
If you see ugly
you can not see God

God is most powerful
only if you see strength
 in weak also
If you see weak
you can not see God

Search for Him 
On  Earth, Moon, and Sun
For sure
you will find none

 See Him 
in what you see
now, here!

You will see 
only Him every where!

So simple, so easy
is this way
The highest yoga
Aho! I say 🙂

ED in Young Men, and Yoga

 

 

Erectile Dysfunction

Last year during one of my courses, a young man, 29,  who was suffering from ED asked me if there were any yogic practices that could help his condition.  

ED is considered a normal  condition in older people, but in young men it is not.
There are many factors such as stress, lack of interest in sex, smoking, drug and alcohol usage, and poor health etc. that can contribute to ED.
However, lately another major factor has been identified.

When this young man asked me for an advice, I remembered reading an article which stated that the ED in young men had been linked to the watching of porn frequently and that’s why, the number of young men who were asking their doctors  for a pill was on the rise. So I asked him if  he had been watching porn.  He said ‘yes’.  He looked embarrassed. 

Porn is not normal sex. Instead, it is the most disgusting, degrading, low, disgraceful, and vulgar display of unrealistic sex.  Sadly, it is so widespread and so readily available that over a billion people, including children as young as five, watch porn online at any given time. 

Watching porn dulls your brain and distorts your thinking. Your brain and mind get so conditioned to the unnatural acts of sex that the normal sex looses its charm, and it no longer stimulates you, and thus the ED.
But the consequences of watching porn are not limited to ED. It affects your physical and mental wellbeing. It can ruin relationships. It lowers your enthusiasm, self-esteem, and interest in life. The list can go on… 

I explained this to him, and recommended that he stopped watching porn. He said he would.

After six months he came again to a course I was teaching. He thanked me. He was happy. He looked more confident. 

The regular practice of yoga enhances and improves all functions of the body including sexual.
The Kegel exercises, which actually originate from tantric yogic practices, are very helpful both for men and women to enhance sexual function, stabilize pelvic floor, and improve overactive bladder. You can search for Kegel exercises online. <3

Shiva Lingam and Yoni, Sacred Stones

 

Sex and food are the two oldest instincts in all forms of life for renewal, survival, and pleasure. 

From yogic point of view, sex is sacred. The Sacred Stones of Shiva Lingam and Yoni, worshiped in Hindu Temples and households, represent the Cosmic male and female creative energy which is necessary for renewal of life. 

Yoga is not against sex. Yoga encourages sacredness, respect, and honour between partners. However, yoga does warn against over-indulgence in sex.  <3 <3
