Recommended Resolutions for 2012

1. Resolve to remember who you are, as often as you can. Use a reminder. 2. Meditate when you have nothing interesting to do. 3. Question why something is so interesting that you can not meditate. 4. Keep the body fit. You don't know how long you need this body for.

Kundalini Dance and Meditation

Shiva laid it out few thousand years ago and Gurdief made it a very successful technique to generate that "aha" moment the mind wants but is denied for being just a cloud in the sky. Sufi twirling is also an adaptation of this sutra from Bhairwva's 112. Recently it has surfaced as kundalini dance. Osho made it a part of his daily practice at the ashram. We will do it here at Flowga and cap it with Oneness blessing. Come on down, who knows this may be your day. Things are happening at Flowga as energy builds.


I know Emeril is old news but the phrase lives on. We are now entering the realm of the yoga that combines, hatha stretching, pranayam breathing, concentration energy meditation and good old fashioned cardio. It is called kundalini yoga. We will be doing this every Sunday before our meditation. We are going to town with this one. It's the only way I know of getting the workout equivalent to a hot yoga session in a cold room.


Shiva laid down the basic techniques of meditation (tantra) in 108 to 112 sutras (depends upon whose numbers you believe but who cares) thousands of years ago. A few of them can be found in nearly every meditation practice. He said that the third eye meditation (as interpreted by Osho) is the most miraculous one as small bits of your dreams during meditation start manifesting in observable reality. What??? We did the meditation under the slokas of Sankara and found peace. I am waiting for some miracle soon. You too are welcome to be with us.


Perhaps the most misunderstood meditation technique is also the oldest. Known as TANTRA or Tantric meditation, it literally means "technique". Because of its ubiquitous character, I couldn't fit it into my  classification of three types of mediation (see an earlier blog below); practical, analytic and energy. You can practice Tantra to do any of the three. Shiva detailed these techniques to his young princess wife, Parvati who fell in love with this nearly naked fakir (forest dweller) and married Him (that story some other time). Some say, you will never get the full gist of this unless you too are deeply in love. Let me hasten to add that it has nothing to do with Carnal science, to which many in California have attached Tantra. But love to the wise has little to do with that (that too for another time). There are altogether 110 practices. We will do the first one this weekend. This one is also the most powerful, best know and easiest to follow. There is an incredi


This week we are doing mantra meditation using yantras. Much to learn about these topics but let me share a few things we talked about on Saturday. Mantras are very useful if you are finding it hard to let go of the trivial and develop peace within. We could just sit there which does work for some but mantras make it easier. Just chant a word (meaningless word is better as mantra since there are no emotions attached to them) and you will see it is hard to sustain a mental conversation. Yantras are cosmic props, found by our ancients to be particularly effective in harnessing the mind through the eyes. Just like some music is better than others. To learn or practice more, you have to come and join us at Flowga or in the cyber world.


Our mind has a tendency to separate, to organize and to classify. It makes gathering knowledge easier in bite sizes but it also delineates things, we start seeing differences where similarities or unity would be better. Spiritual or new age world is no exception. There are so many names for the one phenomenon of invisible energy felt by many in different ways. In fact it is all the same qi or kundalini force. There is, I suppose, this need to own the idea, mark territory or possess. The link below is something I found to be a great starter to guide you about what chakras within your personal body may be working and which ones may need work. Again, there is a sales promo after the useful test but all you need to know is that the tools available are the same old, same old; yoga and Meditation. I have personally found that daily sit down meditation of 20-30 minutes does wonders. For the first three chakras, physical yoga works best and the top three chakras respond best to pranayam.


You can pretend not to know but truth is all around you. I picked up this paragraph from a simple online ad for food sensitivity. Can I say it any better? "Each of us is a spirit experiencing a human life. You can take your emotions out and look at them, you can take your thoughts out and look at them, you can experience many physical feelings or sensations, but you cannot take your spirit out and look at it." Thank you to the author Mary Kurus.

Who, What, Why, Where and When am I?

All wrong questions! Well, perhaps not wrong questions but not that difficult to answer literally, particularly if you are defined by what you know. The paradox is there is no other way to answer the question but be based on what you know. None the less it is a fascinating question. Meditate on it. MY MEDITATIONS I did and came up with this. I, as I know it was actually born of external input. Initially in my mom's comfortable womb, I was serene in deep sleep and in fact was really nonexistent. Not aware, therefor no I. There was this lump of matter evolved over billions of years into a sophisticated set of instruments or five incredible senses to detect and decipher the material world plus don't know how many other senses with how much potentialities yet to come. The matter around me, some with intelligence and some just inorganics reflecting coloured lights and natural sounds started to be detected by this lump of matter growing rapidly into an ultimate machine nature has

Surrender: A Poem to Usher in the New Age at 11:11 on 11-11-11

Surrender surrender surrender Give up the fight Lay down your arms Kneel before me. For I am your master You are delusion, just an idea A concept based on unreality You are not. I am. You can not hurt me For you don't even know Who I am Where I live and what I can do I know precisely who you are Full of hot air Promises you can not deliver Prisoner of time ticking away. Some one misguided you Many led you astray and told you You are the almighty dollar The pleasure, greed and fear. That you have a hold over me That you are my god, my creator My love and my passion That if I pray you will be mine. You had me fooled for sometime Cross-legged deep breathing Flat on the ground I have been asking for a miracle. What nonsense You are not Buddha Christ Shiva Or Krishna in avatar I am all of them and more. When I say On namah shivaya I am not calling the jade lingum I call me to awaken. I still love you For you are my creation And I promise

You are not a body nor a robot

Honda's ISMO will one day be doing the dishes and getting your pills as we age and as ISMO gets smarter but one thing it can not do is become human. Here is a simple test, how long do you think it will take for you to program your robot not to drink too much, eat too much or smoke? How about the same for you? There is an independent streak within this body and mind that refuses to just follow. That streak has to come to that conclusion all by itself even at the cost of obviously damaging this body. Do you need any further proof that you are not the body?

A Treasure Of Information on Healing

Whether you want to be a new age psychotherapist or a qi gong master, these programs look awesome. I am not a healer but I know many of you are so please take a look at these. I will share cost with you if you want to order something.


Believe the fantasies of Kundalini (described below) or not, you can't deny constrictions or freedom in different parts of your body. A simple exercise of sounding esoteric mysterious vowels of Sanskrit will prove the point. We will do that this Saturday and Sunday followed by a guided meditation to shine your chakras. Results could be magnificent. At FLOWGA Headquarters in Okaville...

Kundalini Fantacised

For thousands of years, yogis have talked of Kundalini energy coursing through your body. It has been adapted by nearly all esoteric groups with names like QI, Ki, Reiki. How does it work and why can't our instruments pick it up? Here is my speculation. Our body is a conductor (if you don't believe me stick your finger in socket. Just kidding, Don't). The center of the body is a spine which is surrounded by hundreds of thousands of nerve wiring which carry electrical currents to do all kinds of bodily and mental functions like lifting your finger to giving a kiss. Now we know when we send current around a coil circling a conductor, it develops a strong field. If the central rod is iron, you get magnetism, if  the central rod is your spine, you get Kundalini. Speculate further and you can see if your love life is in tatters, it may be blocking the currents through some of those central nerves and manifest itself in blockages at certain points called chakras. I will fin

What is Death?

It is relief sought by the divine stuck in a mortal body which is a lot of fun until it starts to get old or sick with pain and degeneration. Finally you, the divine decide to give up and depart looking for other ways of fulfilling your dream of ultimate communication. Of course, you carry on for decades with pain and suffering because of love and hope that tomorrow will bring  more pleasant environs. I watched my father die of cancer in pain. he too was hopeful right to the end that perhaps there will be some relief around the corner. But at 87, time wins, hope and love loses. How do you avoid this painful end? Why by making it happen now? Nisargdatta Maharaj says death of the mind  will eliminate the suffering and the eventual pain at the end. Do it now.

Byron Katie

She developed these four questions to help you frame your suffering and a process to follow; Pick a stressful concept about someone (alive or dead) whom you haven't forgiven 100 percent. (For example, “He doesn’t care about me” or “I did it wrong.”) Then question the concept in writing, using the following questions and turnarounds. When answering the questions, close your eyes, be still, and go deeply as you contemplate. Inquiry stops working the moment you stop answering the questions. 1. Is it true? 2. Can you absolutely know that it’s true? 3.  How do you react, what  happens, when you believe that thought? a) What emotions happen when you believe that thought? (Depression, anxiety, etc. If needed, an Emotions and Reactions List is available on b) Does that thought bring peace or stress into your life? c) What images do you see, past and future, when you believe that thought? d) What addictions/obsessions begin to manifest when you believe that

Reading "gazing into the eternal" by Beelzebub.

We have a choice. Accept the body and mind with fears, anger, hate and love (even though I think of love in another group altogether but I would lump it here as most commonly known love", and accept birth and death which ends it all. Or don't? If things are going well for you or more accurately the delusions are overpoweringly convincing you that this impermanent state will persist, You could wait until the end to make this crucial decision. From where I sit, it doesn't take much thinking to chose the path that says this is false and that there is more. What if that is true? Wouldn't you like to know? What do you have to lose, your life? You would lose it anyway.... How to get that feeling that your choice may actually be correct that your material happiness is impermanent. Beelzebub says experiment this. Go to a place you were at ten or twenty years ago. Place has changed, your body and mind has changed but that which is telling you this has not. Is that rig


So, with Skype you can't physically go far but can attend far way meetings. This afternoon I talked to a very nice group of Astral travelers in U.K. Awesome! You can join in as well. They are called "esoteric wisdom" on Skype. Also there are some free ebooks for download like "gazing into the eternal" at, a yogi totally devoted to astral travel.


Recently I was watching a TVO (Ontario version of PBS) special on Buddha and his life. After enlightenment and delivering a series of sermons, his fame reached the ears of a local king of Rajgir. He donated some land and a bamboo orchard to the monk which became Buddhas home for the rest of his days. When he was not traveling the globe, he would frequently return to Rajgir and often spend considerable time meditating in a cave still maintained  on this ashram. In addition to a deep interest in visiting this cave next time I am in the vicinity which is not very far from my ancestor's farm, I was intrigued by what meditation did this all time great leader, perhaps the inventor of modern day mediation do after accomplishing everything  possible through meditation? I have asked this question to some of my friends and gurus who are obviously enlightened. What if any meditation do they do now? Answers have been generally "none" to "that once you have seen th
