You must have read some books or have heard from many yogis about Chakras. But, do you know what chakras are? How do they work? In the Sanskrit language, chakra means wheel. Here, the spiritual meaning of chakra is “a wheel of flowing energy” in the body. We have 114 chakras in
total in the human body, and they work as the connection or junction of the Nadis. The Nadis are the passage of prana or energy in the body.

Out of the 114 Chakras, two of them are outside the physical body. In reality, we can only work on 108 chakras from the remaining
112 Chakras. However, we only need 21 chakras to be active in our body to live a full-fledged life. Due to the three dimensions of energy, Pingala, Ida, and Sushumna, these 21 Chakras form 7 sets, each of them with three functioning Chakras that work as one.

Do you know that ISKCON holds the Guinness Book of world record for Yoga?

There is interesting story about it & how we did it, inspired personally by @PMOIndia Shri @narendramodi ji.

Please read the below thread...1/6
#InternationalDayOfYoga Image
On 21/06/15, I was fortunate to attend d #YogaDay celebration at Rajpath lead by @PMOIndia Sri @narendramodi ji. That day Ministry of Ayush attempted a Guinness world record for Yoga & they made a new record with 81 nationalities.

I watched our PM do various asans with ease 2/6 Image
The new Guinness book of world record for Yoga set by Ministry of Ayush, inspired us to break that record as soon as possible.

But one doubt raised by some devotees was that is it alright to break Government of India's record in less than 2 month which was lead by PM himself?3/6 Image

Answering Two Questions about #Yoga on this #YogaDay2021 !

1. Is it possible to detach your soul from your body?
2. How to differentiate Yoga from Dream?

The answer to 1st question is: yes, it is possible to to separate the soul or jivatma from the body. 1/9
Even one can enter another body through this process:

When the bonds of the mind caused by action have been loosened, one may enter the body of another by knowledge of how the nerve-currents function-
[Patanjali Yoga Sutra- 3.37]

First is, yoga is that state where all the activity of the mind ceases (PYS - 1.2).

So the idea that in yoga one must be somewhere thinking something is incorrect. If one is thinking something then he might be practicing yoga, but he is not in yoga.

#Vedic texts suggest that #Hindus originally did not worship idols and build #temples, and it is quite likely that both Hindus and #Buddhists got the idea from the #Greeks.
#India accounted for 33% of the #World economy in AD 1.
#China's share was 26% of World GDP.
India was by far the World's economic superpower at that time.
#Indians sold textiles, spices and demanded precious metals in payment.

Mirabai’s teaching:

When Mirabai went to Vrindavan she wanted to see Jiva Goswami the greatest Sanatan Dharma scholar and Maa Radha Govind devotee of that time.

Mirabai sent Jiva Goswami a request for darshan. Jiva Goswami denied saying he does not meet women.. #Gita #Yoga #Om
To this Mirabai replied, who is this MALE in Vrindavan, I have heard that the soul is a consort of the Supreme Lord.

Jiva Goswami was ashamed and fell at Mirabai’s feet.

Let me tell you another secret, which is hidden within deep texts of Sanatan Dharma. #Gita #Yoga #Karma #Om
All Deva or Demigods secretly have a eternal Gopi Rupa!
If you visit Vrindavan you should surely go to Gopishvar Mahadev - Mahadev as an eternal

“And she accepted, in the place of all this, a life of semi-barbarity, among the mystics, the fakers, and the dervishes of East India, where as a devotee of the weird, intangible faith which is called Yoga, she must satisfy her heart’s desire in the contemplation of the occult..”

Few wks of #homeopathy, patient very lethargic. No advise 2restrict salt. On the other hand, patient told 2 consume water, #homeo every 2 hours. Came back in few wks in brain failure bcoz sodium level was 114. Admitted. Na corrected.Fluid removed. Stabilizing.
#Homeopathy mayb subtle 2 cos any effect, adverse event/ this is what proponents wud say, that its mayb no effect, no side effect, but simple fact is that, it deters patients frm real treatment, that's the real danger.

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…
...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

Our paper (with @ShazAnsari1 and Deb Brown) on the transformation of #yoga from an ascetic, anti-capitalist movement to a multi-billion dollar market is now out in @ASQJournal. Here are the highlights! @CambridgeJBS
How it started; How its going. Yoga Journal's changing covers over the years.
Movements often use the market mechanism to scale up. However, countercultural movements oppose the ideological underpinnings of markets. How are such movts made syncretic with markets?

A #Mohammedan can be a yogi, a #Christian can be a yogi, a #Jain, a #Buddhhist can be a yogi. Yoga is pure science. Anyone can be a yogi.
#Yoga is a science. It is just an accident that Hindus discovered it. It is not Hindu. It is a pure mathematics of the inner being.
- Osho
Yoga is not a religion – remember that. Yoga is not Hindu, it is not Mohammedan. Yoga is a pure science just like mathematics, physics or chemistry. Physics is not Christian physics is not Buddhist.
If Christians have discovered the laws of physics, then too physics is not Christian. It is just accidental that Christians have come to discover the laws of physics. But physics remains just a science.
