Pranashakti and Kriya Yoga

In the article, Pranashakti – The Divine Primordial Energy, we understood the importance of Pranashakti. According to Yogic scriptures, this Creation; life – visible or invisible – is the chaotic vibration of Prana. Thus if one can calm down the restlessness of the Prana, one has achieved control over life and death. One can overcome the relativity of Time and Space.

The Universal Truth

In short, perceive and realize your oneness with the Universal Truth of Oneness, and no more a sense of separateness or loss. All negative ideas, biological defects and hence sufferings tend to cease. This Real or Absolute Knowledge.

  • Is it practical?
  • Is it achievable?
  • Is it worth the investment of time and energy?
  • Is it not wise and practical to eat, drink, dance, and be merry?
  • Why not follow the philosophy of Rishi Charvaka?

यावज्जीवेत्सुखं जीवेत् ऋणं कृत्वा घृतं पिबेत् ।
भस्मीभूतस्य देहस्य पुनरागमनं कुतः 
yavaj jeevet sukham jeevet, runam kritva ghritam pibet
bhasmeebhootasya dehasya, punaragamanam kutah.


English Translation:

The meaning of this Sanskrit verse is interesting. “As long as you are alive, live luxuriously. If needed you may borrow and live on credit and in debt. Because if you are dead and cremated, it is foolish to think about rebirth.”

Who was Rishi Charvak?

Rishi Charvak was a philosopher in ancient India. He was very materialistic. He tried to propagate his philosophy of ultra-materialism. He had a small following, but after his death, his philosophy also died out. He had never bothered about God or Higher Life or Spirituality. But he and his philosophy were forgotten. Spiritual practice existed, grew and now thrives
