For Optimal Health-- III

Date: Thu 29 Jan 2009 23:23:17 -0000 To: From: Mishra" Subject: For Optimal Health-- III Baba "Tumi a'ma'y hrdaya ma'jhe eso go priyo madhurata' ma'khi..." (P.S. 747) Purport: Baba, please come in my heart and saturate my entire being with the showering of Your sweetness, O' my dear most. Baba please remove my all impurities and negative samskaras-- and whatever other things I have that got accumulated over the ages. Please inundate my entire existence with the showering of Your love and divine grace. Baba, this entire universe, these seven lokas, nothing is beyond Your reach. Everything is within You. And because everything resides in You, that is why You know all my merits and demerits-- whatever I have. By Your Grace today I am surrendering whatever that is mine unto You. With the only desire that You please look towards me with Your compassionate eye, eyes full of karuna'. This wee-bit of grace I long from You. Baba, since ages, since many lives, I have been crossing through the negative path, path of dogma. But today by Your grace, this is the first time in my entire life when You awakened my samvit and now I understood my mistakes. And I rectified them by Your grace. Baba, all my actions, my entire being, my whole heart, everything I offer at Your lotus feet. I do not want to keep anything as my own from henceforth onward. With this pointed mind I am doing sastaunga pranam to You. Please accept it...
Namaskar, As we all know fasting is special practice whereby one's entire system gets cleansed and purified. Because by allowing the organs to rest and collect the toxins, the body gets the opportunity to rejuvenate itself. And of course, breaking the fast properly with a thorough cleansing process is an indispensable feature of fasting-- otherwise much of the benefits are lost. So by doing the whole fasting and breaking in a sincere and complete manner then an innumerable amount of "health and wealth" is aroused in the human structure such that the body and mind glisten with purity and lightness. That is why we all know that Baba Himself is very strict with all margiis and acaryas on the point of fasting. And in multiple ways He reminds us that always He is watching. And this following teaching is leading in that exact manner. Baba says, "Suppose, a gentleman is undergoing fasting, and secretly in a closed room, he takes chocolate. 'No one will know, nobody will know.' But it is not so. His unit cognition will know that he has taken chocolate. And similarly, the Cosmic Father will know that in a particular room one unit body took chocolate very secretly, and that unit body is still thinking, that the fact that he took chocolate on a fast-day is not known to anybody. It is known to everybody. Nothing is a secret." (AV-12) Hence Baba is acutely aware of exactly what happens-- as well as what does not happen-- on our each and every fasting day. And He wants that we sincerely follow His guideline as this is for our welfare. That is why in dharma samiiksa and in all types of reporting sessions, Baba used to point out sadhakas on the point of fasting in front of one and all. And if one person got pointed out it was understood that if others are also falling into this same category then they should also rectify themselves. That was the spirit. It was not just that Baba was speaking to only one individual on such occasions. Some people would wonder why Baba was pointing out margiis or Wts in front of the collective, as opposed to informing them individually. And surely the reason for this is that Baba did not have the time to speak to each and every individual on each and every particular point. So by highlighting a particular sadhaka's mistake in public, then if 4 or 5 others were doing the same wrongdoing then naturally they would get also alarmed. And the feeling would come that they too should rectify themselves. As they understood that Baba is very concerned and strict on this point. Plus, another reason is that naming the defects on the public platform was a good way of reminding one and all. Because day after day or every few days if He was pointing out a different margii or Wt on the point of fasting, then it automatically became a reminder to all those present that this was something important. So if anyone was attending the reporting for an entire week or two week period, then numerous reminders they would get. And invariably they would spread that idea to others who did not attend. Hence overall there were at minimum two distinct reasons for pointing people out in front of the collective: lack of time to speak to everyone on an individual basis and by this way it was a good reminder to one and all. Thus within a short period Baba could rectify and instill proper practices within countless sadhakas within the entire Marga. Overall we can say it was His special technique and blessing. And surely every Margii and Wt will readily admit that Baba is very strict on the point of fasting. And He wants that we should all be sincere on this very point. As He tells us again and again in various ways that indeed He is always watching our each and every action. I hope others will also come forward and share their experiences on this very topic.
Here following is Baba's Blessing: Baba says, "You boys and you girls do you realise why you were born? You were born to do something to please Parama Purusa. Always move towards Parama Purusa through your actions, through your thoughts, through your contemplation, and your goal will be attained, your purpose in coming to this world will be fulfilled." (SS-18) Namaskar, Satyanarayan
1. First mix 1/4 piece of lemon or lime with some salt in a dry container-- preferably a plastic or ceramic container, but not metal. 2. Then add 1/2 litre to 1 litre of warm water and stir. 3. The lemon salt water mixture should be distinctly salty to taste-but not overly salty. 4. If your mixture is not sufficiently salty then little by little more can be added. And if really it is already too salty then simply dilute your mixture by adding more warm water. 5. Then one should begin to drink this lemon salt water. Not in one gulp per se, but in a series of comfortable sips and swallows over the course of a few minutes, without bloating the stomach. 6. After finishing that initial round of salty lemon water then one can walk nearby for a minute or two-- either in the fresh air or indoors. 7. Plus you can gently stretch the upper body by raising the arms on the inhale and then exhaling and gently bending to the side. And repeat by bending to the opposite direction. This gently helps to hasten the cleansing process. 8. Then as soon as one feels ready to again drink, then the next round of lemon salt water should be taken. Note: It is important not to wait too long in between rounds. As soon as the stomach feels comfortable one should again drink. 9. And like this multiple rounds should be done of drinking lemon salt water and then walking slowly. This process should be repeated until one feels the need to go to the toilet. And overall upwards of 2-3 litres of lemon salt water can be ingested in this way. (Note: But under no circumstances should solid food be taken yet. Rather this will wreak havoc on the system as fresh food will be sitting on top of waste material. So no food should be taken at all until the entire system gets clear.) 10. By this process of drinking round after around, a strong urge will come to go to the toilet-- within 1/2 hour to one hour, depending. And initially when in the toilet a very strong smelling brown waste matter will be released. And thereafter progressively more and more liquids will be released via the rectum. This will also be brown at the beginning. But one should not worry that they have been stricken with a severe case of diarrhea. It is not like that. Rather this is the initial stage of cleaning out the digestive track. 11. Once one has begun the process of defecating & clearing the stomach and bowels. Then you can switch over from drinking salty mixture and instead begin taking pure fresh water without any salt. This fresh water will help hydrate the body and will also aid in the cleansing process. 12. In this process of cleaning one might have to visit the toilet anywhere between 3-5 times, or more. And one important thing to remember is that never should the urge be suppressed and "held in". Rather as soon as the impulse comes one should go straight to the toilet. 13. Gradually then the matter released from the rectum will go from being brown and somewhat solid to being yellowish and liquidy until finally being a completely clear liquid. And once completely clear liquid comes then in this case one can feel assured that indeed the entire digestive track has become clean-- including the intestines, colon, and stomach. Everything has become perfectly clean. 14. And by this entire process of cleansing a very light and healthy feeling will consume the body. And one will fell very happy, fresh, and energetic. 15. Within ten to fifteen minutes a slight feeling of hunger will come. And at that point one can eat 2-3 ripe bananas, depending on the size. But the bananas should be soft and ripe-- not green and hard. 16. And then after taking a few bananas-- and do be careful not to overeat and fill the stomach completely-- then after waiting 25 minutes it is important to again drink some fresh water. This will help in digesting the banana. 17. And thereafter when stronger hunger comes one should take some easily digestible food-- like well-hydrated rice and vegetables, or whatever is conveniently available in your area or locale. But neither strong food like citrus fruit nor heavily spiced or oily food should be taken. These should be avoided and instead more simple food should be eaten. 18. And throughout the day care should be taken to continue to drink fresh water in small amounts, but not at the same time as eating. This will help ensure the solid food gets digested properly and it will also keep the body hydrated. Attention: One should also keep in mind that breaking fast is a highly individualized thing. Everyone should be gentle and listen to their own body when undergoing this entire process.
******************************************** ROOT LANGUAGES
Baba says, "When a swift horse runs its hooves make a turtur sound. That which makes a turtur sound as it moves is called turaga or turaunga or turaungama (that is, "horse"). That animal which makes a kurkur sound as it runs is called kuraga or kuraunga or kuraungama (that is, "deer"). In this way human beings have created many word forms and verb forms to express their mental ideas. This process of word formation is called "acoustic derivation" and the original verbal roots in all the world's languages were created in this way." "The first word forms in all the world's languages were the original verbal roots. By adding prefixes and suffixes many different words were derived. Among the established languages of the world, mainly four can be considered as the root languages. They are Vedic, Latin, Hebrew and old Chinese. If one examines the derivation of the vocabulary of these languages one will find that their method or process is identical. (Varn'a Vijina'na, Disc 19, p. 270)
