Gandhi—Einstein--Namaste--and----Development of Nonviolent Satyagraha movement and Atom bomb happening together


I love the Indian traditions, during Diwali I saw a flower garland put over a wheelbarrow which was used to collect garbage from the streets; the workers had put the garland because their tools are a means of livelihood for them.


One such tradition is that of folding the hands and saying Namaste, it is both a yoga mudra and a mantra.


It creates such a good vibration more so if done collectively in a group.


Albert Einstein having seen Gandhi greet people with his hands placed together he wrote to ask the meaning of Namaste and the reply was:

"I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides. I honor the place in you of light, love, truth, peace and wisdom. I honor the place in you where, when you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us."






Now while talking about Gandhi and Einstein one of the extremely interesting facts which Einstein himself told jawaharlal nehru is that the development of the satyagraha moment has been exactly parallel to the development of the atomic bomb.


I was very fascinated when I compared the timeline of the advances in Nuclear Physics and the evolution of Gandhi’s philosophy of Non Violence.


I write down the main points as a year by year comparison will be very lengthy.


The end of the 19th century saw the beginning of nuclear physics with the discovery of radioactivity and Gandhi also begins his moment and creates the Natal Indian Congress in South African politics.



In the mid 1900’s Einstein develops the theory of Relativity, the interchangeable relationship of mass and energy, the basic fundamental of the power of the atom E=MC2---and Gandhi Introduces Non-Violent Protest Philosophy of Satyagraha and organizes his first satyagraha campaign ---On the other end Georgi Gapon leads the first nonviolent protest of the century in Russia.



The year 1915—Einstein publishes the General theory of relativity.—and Gandhi arrives in India from South Africa



The beginning of 1930’s--- various complex experiments carried in nuclear physics laboratories and experiment proves Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity propelling nuclear physics to new heights ---on the other end Gandhi shakes the foundations of the British empire by symbolically picking up a piece of unprocessed salt at Dandi, inspiring thousands of Indians to follow his example of non-violent civil disobedience a resolution on Complete Independence was adopted


The beginning of 1940’s-- powerful nations wanted  to made the atomic bomb--- Gandhi launches the “Quit India” movement.


The mid 1940’s-- physics reaches its peak and   the climax of nuclear physics---the atom bombs were exploded---The nonviolent struggle also reaches its peak, and the climax-- India gained its independence.



In Europe too various nonviolent protest were carried out.


It took me a month to compare the timelines and after I wrote this article I kept on thinking about it and realized the irony between the two.


Gandhi set up his moment on truth and virtue but afterwards what did it result into— Gandhi acknowledged Nehru as his political heir and successor, later it became one of the most corrupt regimes in this World—a regime of power,  of corruption, of dirty politics.


On the other hand what did the atomic bombs which were a historic crime against humanity---the 2,00,000 most cruel deaths lead to—they led to peace in the world.


For after world war-2, no leader wanted to repeat the evil of war.

Science behind putting a piece of iron under the pillow to ward away evil


Science behind religious practices


My grandmother had a remedy for disturbed sleep {experiencing hallucinations} she used to keep an iron object under the pillow, this was to ward off the evil spirits and guarantee a peaceful sleep.


Later in life I was watching a program on TV—this was a true story of a famous castle which was supposed to be haunted, there was a particular room in the castle, anyone who slept there experienced the worst sleep of his life.


Scientist conducted experiments in this castle and found out that the mattress was made from small iron springs. This unusual mattress created a significant local magnetic anomaly {deviations in values of a magnetic field from the normal values} this made the people sleeping on that mattress to have a disturbed sleep.

since certain low-frequency complex magnetic fields generated in the surrounding which can influence brain activity and cause susceptible individuals to hallucinate ghostly experiences{ Laboratory experiments have proved this}


This can happen in any house even if the mattress is not made from iron springs because metals in the surrounding acquire a magnetic field {iron is highly magnetically permeable that is the ability to acquire high magnetization in relatively weak magnetic fields, also iron diverts magnetic fields around it, even if it isn't actually magnetized.}

now how does placing a piece of iron under the pillow help to solve this problem


It clicked to me that this is the reason why we use the “flinders bars” below the ships magnetic compass—these are soft iron bars used to correct the errors in the magnetic field, after placing the flinders bar the ships magnetic compass gets corrected of errors and shows the correct direction.{i am a ship's navigator}


Placing iron below the pillow {as my grandmother suggested} acted as the flinders bar correcting the uneven magnetic field which disturbed the brain and caused hallucinations for which the blame was put on the evil spirits.



So in short----abnormal magnetic fields which are easily generated can influence brain activity and cause individuals to hallucinate that is to have ghostly experiences----by keeping a piece of iron underneath the pillow this abnormal magnetic field is cancelled out.

Difference between the ascetic’s paduka {foot ware} and the toe ring.


Science behind religious practices



Married women wear a metal ring on their second toe. This helps to activate certain nerves (due to the electromagnetic properties of metal) whereby the reproductive system is benefited and also helps to generate passion. 





In some communities the husband himself puts the toe ring on his bride which I believe signifies a spiritual connection between the couple.



Wearing toe rings is an ancient practice in India and Archaeologists have also discovered two ancient Egyptian skeletons, dating back more than 3,300 years, which were each buried with a toe ring made of copper alloy.  


On the other hand an ascetic wears a paduka a wooden footwear with a knob between the big and second toe.





The only way to walk wearing a paduka is to squeeze the big and second toe firmly around the wooden knob; by doing this the nerves are pressed (compressed) which helps the ascetic to lead a celibate life.




This has exactly the opposite effect of wearing a metal toe ring.

India’s first rocket transported on a bicycle


In 1963 Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) launched its first rocket from Thumba Equatorial Launching Station.


The station had a single launch pad in the midst of coconut plantations. A local Catholic Church the St Mary Magadelene's Church served as the main office for the scientists. The bishop's house was converted into a workshop. A Cattle shed became the laboratory in which young Indian scientists like Abdul Kalam Azad worked and the rocket was transported to lift-off pad ON A BICYCLE.

The second rocket, which was launched sometime later, was a little bigger and heavier and it was transported in a bullock cart for the lift off.


Over the next 12 years, India built and launched more than 350 sounding rockets

Currently “The Mars Orbiter Mission” is on its way to Mars.











In the early 70's, due to lack of proper facilities, rocket cones were carried on bicycles.

All India khula Saand Akhara

I have started a new akhara (an association of Swamis).and named it “The All India khula Saand Akhara”

The working system will be the same like most of the ashrams.

The top post of the Mahamandaleshwar is open for auction and will be given to the highest bidder; preference will be given to a charismatic personality.

We will enjoy a complete tax free status with no money accountability what so ever, our main business will be to let out rooms in the name of ashram (more for Ganga facing room and so on)

Money inflows will be no problem; people will not feed the poor who are dying on the streets but will be extremely generous with us.

We will not have to scientifically prove anything we teach; the spiritual super market is a free for all market and people will blindly follow us---mind control at its best.

Since we will not be family persons we will have the licence to be irresponsible when it comes to male-female relationships.

We will be infallible authorities, and command absolute loyalty.

What we say will always be right, and never wrong or incorrect.

We will prohibit individual mental freedom, and get unquestioned obedience.

So if you would like to do the easy job of preaching rather than the difficult job of practicing you are welcome to join The All India khula Saand Akhara

For my readers who do not speak hindi-- khula Saand means a bull let loose who keeps on chasing cows.

Do not move her she controls the stream.

June 16th 2013—Uttarakhand, the ancient idol of Dhari Devi is moved in spite of the stricture imposed by our fore fathers not to remove the idol from its designated spot what followed was a tragedy of unimaginable proportions a total devastation.

This article is about the science behind the Dhari Devi idol.

First where was the idol located-- the deity stood in the middle of the Alaknanda River in Srinagar Garhwal in uttarakhand.To visit her temple one had to go down half a kilometre towards the river that means she was situated at the low level.

Our fore fathers placed a fierce looking idol and gave us this instructions:-

{1} the idol of Dhari Devi shall not be put under roof. Keep her under open sky signifying that she is Mother Nature herself- one with the elements of nature be it sunshine or rain.

{2} she be called Dhari Devi—Dhari from dhara means stream—she is the one who controls the stream.

{3} do not anger her by moving her from this location this will result in destruction

By saying that do not move her no matter what-- they told us DO NOT LET THE WATER LEVEL RISE ABOVE THIS POINT.

They gave us a message in Environmental science.

But men destroyed nature built dams, hydroelectric projects this resulted in the water level rising and ultimately on 16th june the temple was under knee deep water and it would have been washed away; so the idol was moved to a higher location.

We will always be responsible for raising the water level by the unplanned, haphazard development and thus ignoring the warnings of the ancient men of wisdom—“Do not move her she controls the stream. ”
    
It is very interesting that the stone carved deity of Dhari Devi changes faces - from a girl to a woman to an old lady - as the day progresses.

The dolphin choreographed show.


Humans have trained dolphins to perform various acts.

But the dolphins from Sea World Orlando's Dolphin Cove have learned on their own to artfully create air bubble rings and play with them.

It started when the curators noticed a bottlenose dolphin at Dolphin Cove had learned to expel air from its blowhole. With a flick of its head, the dolphin then created a circle of air -- a silvery bubble ring.

Curators then saw the dolphin using its nose to twist, spin and re-shape the ring, sometimes biting a bigger ring to make a smaller one.

Then more dolphins at the facility's habitat learned to create the bubble rings.


The staff at Dolphin Cove say that most of the playful mammals who display the behavior are females this may be because male dolphins are preoccupied with socializing with each other.

Are the dolphins doing this to entertain the people who come to watch them?

This performance is certainly far superior to the human choreographed dolphin shows.

When I saw this on National Geographic channel I remembered a
Hymn I learned in childhood……


All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

An ancient town devastated—let it be a turning point in our lives.

Kedarnath the ancient town which houses the temple of Shiva the Mahadev--the spirit of the universe that destroys

A few days back the Mahadev manifested in Kedarnath and other places and danced the Rudra Tandava the dance of destruction and death.

Why did this happen? Why has humanity suffered so much? Why so much devastation?

We ourselves are responsible for this.

We material minded people have a complete disrespect for mother Earth.

We are all connected in one consciousness, our thought patterns materialize in our lives and environment; we have brought this destruction on ourselves.

Let us reflect on this, let this be a turning point in our lives, let us realize why we have come to this earth and what should be our aim in life, and instead what are we chasing?

Till then a Shiv shilla as old as time itself lies buried in mud in an ancient town now destroyed.

{the Kedarnath temple does not have a Shivling it has a huge rock called the Shiv shilla}
