The spiritual meaning of Namaste is profound Particularly in Hinduism, Gods are worshiped by closing the eyes and joining the palms in reverence, which indicates the recognition of their divinity.

'While paying obeisance to God, bring the palms together. After joining the hands
one should bow and bring the head forward. While tilting the head forward, one should place the thumbs at the mid-brow region, i.e. at the point between the eyebrows and try to concentrate on the feet of the Deity. After that, instead of bringing the folded hands down immediately
they should be placed on the mid-chest region for a minute in such way that the wrists touch the chest; then only should the hands be brought down.

The fingers should not be stiff while bringing the palms together because this will lead to a decrease in Sattva component from the

Thread: @RepJeremyGray. #Namaste! Thank you for being a voice of reason for this bill. Yes, #yoga has its roots and its tied to Hinduism. But, Hindus have never imposed their beliefs on anyone. So...1/n time.com/5946284/alabam…
...there is no need for people to be "allergic" to yoga, Namaste, mantras, chanting, Sanskrit words, etc. Hindus have shared yoga as a gift to make the world a more peaceful and harmonious place - something that is much needed in our society today. 2/n
Stripping "Namaste" away is an unfortunate attempt to de-link an indigenous practice from its roots and an example of #Culturalappropriation. We stand against such attempts and encourage people to acknowledge the roots while sharing in the benefits of this wonderful gift. 3/n

The paucity and stupidity of #India's official Government response to the scale of the #Coronavirus epidemic is shown by 2 tweets from Union Cabinet Ministers, Both seek to divert attention away from the enormous problem of 3 million cases, and a pole-axed economy. First, 1/5
The Union Minister for Health, @drharshvardhan tweets an old video of German Chancellor Merkel and French Pres Macron greeting each other with folded hands rather than a handshake as evidence of Hindutva India's #Vishwaguru soft-powers. 2/5
Then we have the External Affairs Minister, @DrSJaishankar tweeting an old BBC video-clip of Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations by Ghanians. 3/5

A short story
When Suheldev defeated the whole army of Turks and everyone was killed...The Indians went to revive and reconstruct Somnathji temple of Mahadev
A question was asked by Suheldev then to the crowd gathered for the ceremony (1) Image
(2)
If Lord Shiva is present everywhere, every pore of this universe has Lord Shiva in it then

What was the point of rebuilding this temple?

Everyone was silent, then Suheldev spoke
"The rebuilding of Somnathji is a statement! A statement to the world! Image

Many of our fellow ancient culture have died out. Nobody in Rome believes in Roman Gods anymore. Nobody in Greece worships in the Greek temples anymore. The ancient Egyptian culture has been forsaken by the Egyptians themselves. Image

Why being a nurse was VITAL to my ability to practice as an NP:

I’ve had several ‘saves’ where my ER nursing experience/instinct helped me catch close calls that NP school does not teach you.

Ex: in urgent care. 47y. Thin. A&O. No PMH. No meds. No ETOH. Abd pain
X2-3D. Heaves but no vomiting. Tol PO. Norm BMs. No urine Sx. Vitals norm except RR 22-26. Tender to deep palpation otherwise norm exam. But!... I notice a bad smell. (🤔Smells like DKA). No Hx DM. Did fingerstick just in case. Sugar “max” on glucometer... 💡met acidosis!
I Sent to ED. (Incredible pts compensation ability on presentation!)

CMP result 24h later: gap 34, CO2 11, sodium 118, glucose 638, creatinine 4.4, GFR 15, BUN 40, AST 210, lipase 7188 😳

Ab pain (nonspecific)+bad smell+mild hyperventilation. That’s it.

Sanatan Dharma – A religion based on science

1/n
Ancient India, the land of Vedas and Upanishads. The land of culture, traditions, purity of thoughts and a religion that is based on science. Fasting, celebrations, festivals, even our daily routine is based on science. Image

Let me point a few things that we follow that are considered religious but are based on science. Our sages entwined science into religion in such a way that a common man can follow scientific rules to stay healthy.

leaves that were put to purify the air. It served two purposes, decoration and purification. A normal daily ritual that was based on science.

Namaste, the traditional Indian greeting, putting your palms together and bowing your head slightly has made a comeback.

The other day Prince Charles was seen, greeting important people with Namaste. That's a sea change even though it’s under special circumstances.

1/7
There was a time when all Indian/Hindu customs and traditions were considered as superstition by the West in general. Even useful ones were discarded without examining.
A classic case of throwing the baby out with the bath water.

2/7
So what does Namaste mean? Is it merely a meaningless gesture?

Namaste is done with the head slightly bowed and hands joined together, palms touching and fingers pointing upwards. Thumbs are close to the chest.

on this day five years ago I moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts. I have lived here now longer than anywhere else since I left for college at 18, and now @CambMA really feels like my home. I love this city so much.
@CambMA so, in tribute, I am going to spend today tweeting out some of my favorite things about & places in #Cambridge. this feels especially important to do as so much has changed since I moved here in 2014.
@CambMA it is painful to see so many out-of-state big money corporate developers coming into Cambridge & Boston and tearing down historic buildings, kicking out small, local businesses, and putting up the same fugly Lego-looking condos.

[ Una prueba irrefutable de que usted no tiene que reinventar la rueda para pegarla del techo ]

En el mundo del cine ha surgido la incógnita de que si "Avengers: Endgame" podrá superar a "Avatar" como la película más taquillera de la historia.

Esto le importa, por una razón:
"Avatar" puede resumirse así:

Un grupo de aborígenes nativos de un mundo salvaje trata de protegerse de unos colonos invasores. Uno de los colonos se involucra emocionalmente y cambia de bando.

¿Dónde ha visto eso antes?

Claro. Es *exactamente la misma sinopsis que Pocahontas*
Pero espere, hay más:

Es también una descripción bastante fiel de Danza con Lobos, El último Samurai y Ferngully.

No importa si las ha visto o no.

El caso es que *La historia de Avatar nos la sabemos de memoria*

Hay personas que tratan a los demás, en función a su interés.

Por ejemplo: tratan bien a quienes tienen dinero, o cierta posición social, o poder.

Eso me recuerda la anécdota de un joven piloto alemán de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, quien salió en una misión de rutina:
Este joven no tenía ni veinte años y ya era una promesa de la aviación Nazi.

(Claro, tampoco suena tan bien que digamos).

Lo cierto es que había cumplido su sueño de toda la vida:

Ser piloto.

Y se le daba muy bien.
Todo, porque le habían inspirado las aventuras de
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, narradas en libros como 'Viento, arena y estrellas'.

Para esta misión de rutina debía interceptar y derribar una aeronave en el Valle del Ródano.

Pan comido. El encuentro no duró mucho.

“Me siento vacío”.

Si a usted esta frase no le dice nada, simplemente siga de largo.

Pero si con frecuencia se siente sin ganas de nada o que está atrapado en un bucle sin fin, preste atención.

Muy probablemente padezca de un síndrome que afecta a media humanidad.

La raíz:
Cuando aún éramos nómadas hace 10k años, no podíamos darnos el lujo de asentarnos.

Permanecíamos alerta las 24 horas del día, todos los días, atentos a cualquier amenaza.

Depredadores. Fenómenos naturales. Suegras.

Relajarnos significaba la extinción.

Un día, todo cambió:
Producto de miles de años de observar el mundo que nos rodeaba, comenzamos a domesticar animales y a experimentar con la agricultura.

Al fin, había llegado el día en el que ya no tendríamos que vagar.

Podríamos asentarnos.

Suponíamos que esto era algo bueno, pero...

Hoy en #JuevesDeJapon, usted puede aprender una lección muy útil de los Japoneses, quienes 'importaron' el sistema de escritura chino en el siglo V.

Mejor conocido como 'Kanji', consta de 10.000 caracteres de los cuales 2K son de obligatorio aprendizaje.

Sí, es una tortura:
En Japón usan tres alfabetos; el principal es el Kanji. Los 'primeros' 2000 caracteres o esenciales, se estudian a lo largo de primaria y secundaria.

Para que un japonés pueda leer correctamente el periódico, tiene que ser bachiller.

Antes, sencillamente, no puede.
Es más, si usted quiere leer a García Márquez o Borges en Japonés, debe aprenderse 1000 caracteres más, como mínimo.

Y cada caracter tiene una o dos pronunciaciones en chino y varias en japonés, que también tienen que aprender.

Y además, aprender el estilo cursivo de cada uno.

* Ahórrese libros enteros de liderazgo y motivación con esta conversación de 59 segundos entre Clint Barton y Wanda Maximoff *

De las casi 50 horas que dura en total el Universo Cinemático de @MarvelLATAM, este clip sigue siendo la crema del pastel.

Explico las 9 razones ->
Para poner las cosas en contexto y para quienes no están familiarizados con los personajes: La situación en la que están es, en parte, responsabilidad de ella.

Así que él tendría todo el derecho de echárselo en cara.

¿Qué es lo que hace, en vez de eso?

Veámoslo por partes:
1) Póngase al nivel de la persona.

Él se acerca para hablarle.

Aunque usted sea el líder, no permanezca distante, al otro lado del escritorio.

Siéntese al lado de quien quiere motivar.

Si es un niño pequeño, arrodíllese.

Acercarse es crítico para establecer empatía.

Las estafas más graves son las emocionales.
Uno de los pensamientos más claros que he leído es un proverbio chino:

“Si usted pierde dinero, en realidad no ha perdido nada.

Si pierde la salud, ha perdido algo,

...pero si pierde la paz, lo ha perdido todo”.

Piense en esto un momento.
No confunda paz con inactividad.

Usted puede tener su agenda llena, al minuto, 18 horas diarias 6 días a la semana, y tener paz.

Un médico puede desenvolverse en emergencias, en un ambiente de profundo estrés, y tener paz.

La tiene, porque se encuentra a sí mismo en ese lugar.
