Biography of Human Existence

There is a profound meaning to life and a deep purpose for being here on earth. A ‘rare’ few find this purpose consciously and begin a journey of spiritual adventure within. Living consciously is a spiritual lifestyle. A being wrapped in ignorance of the True Nature of its Self, loses its moorings and is unable to identify its goal in life, namely seeking the self enlightened

    Kali Yuga(Age of Pisces)When Did It End and What Lies Ahead (Age of Aquarius)?
    In astronomy, axial precession is a gravity-induced, slow, and continuous change in the orientation of an astronomical body’s rotational axis. https://en.wikipedia.org.
    The precession (caused by gradual rotation of the Earth’s axis) of the equinoxes is the period of time that it takes the Earth’s axis to pass through one complete cycle of the zodiac. It takes the planet 72 years to pass through one degree of the zodiac and 25,920 years to complete one full circle of 360 degrees.
    In the yogic astronomy, dividing the orbit of the Earth around the Sun into is of 27 segments or nakshatras. Each nakshatra is further divided into four equal sectors called padas or steps.
    Earth takes 108 steps through space in cycles. These cycles are happening all the time in the solar system. The time taken for a complete 360 degree rotation of Earth’s axis is approximately 25,920 or 72 years to pass through one degree of the zodiac. One half of the journey takes 12,960 years and covers the four yugas. Satya Yuga lasts 5184 years. Treta Yuga lasts 3888 years. Dwapara Yuga lasts 2592 years. Kali Yuga lasts 1296 years. These four yugas taken together come to a total of 12,960 years.
    The Cycle of Four Yugas
    Satya Yuga lasts 5184 years. Treta Yuga lasts 3888 years. Dwapara Yuga lasts 2592 years. Kali Yuga lasts 1296 years (descending cycle) + [excluding 1296 years (ascending cycle].) These four yugas taken together come to a total of 12,960 years
    The Beginning of Kali Yuga
    In 3140 BC, the Kurukshetra War ended, and in 3102 BC, Krishna left his body and the two Kali Yugas (descending + ascending cycles) ended in 2012 AD. Natural calamities are natural before moving on to the new eras. Movement away from the Age of Pisces allows humanity to experience safety and security with an upward movement in human consciousness.
    Yugas and Human Consciousness
    The solar system with the Sun and the planets around it are moving in our galaxy. It takes 25,920 years for our solar system to complete one cycle around a larger complex of the Super Sun of Sirius stars. The effects on our planet, by this big star system brings to all the creatures living in our system, an ascension of human consciousness to greater possibilities. It is when our system moves away from it, that creatures living in our system come to their lowest level of possibility – this is Kali Yuga.
    When our solar system moved closer to the “Super Sun,” Satya Yuga began. The human mind gradually will ascend towards its highest performance and capability. People’s ability to know life, to communicate, and to live joyfully will be at its highest. We will have sensible people. In truth, all it takes to live well on this planet is a bunch of sensible people.
    In Satya Yuga, human ability to communicate will be at its best, because the etheric sphere of the planet is of high levels filled with concentrated life energy (prana). The etheric content in the atmosphere determines how sensitive humans are in terms of our ability to communicate effectively.
    However, no matter in which time or in whichever or whatever yuga, or in which planetary position we are, individual human beings can rise above all these constraints. Every individual human beings can live in a their persoanl golden time within themselves, as was demonstrated by Jesus. He demonstrated to humanity, during Kali Yuga, that even in the worst of times, the possibility to reach one’s Christ Consciousness at the kutastha chaitanya, is always there for any and all, individual human being.
    There are many things one can do to enhance the ether or create one’s etheric content. This is why Krishna warned that in Kali Yuga, humanity would be far away from the Super Sun. The ether will then be so low that there would be no point in trying to teach them yoga, meditation, mantras, or yantras – they will not get it.
    Just teach them dedication through devotion. If they are devout, they will indicidually generate their own ether. And because of this etheric content in the atmosphere, they will perceive.
    There is a deep-rooted understanding about what happens with the human mind in relation to the planet on which we live. We do not only live on this planet – we are the planet. The planet understands that you are a part of it – only you and I think something else of ourself.

      We are presently is Dwapara Yuga (Age of Aquarius) and not in Satya Yuga.

        Meditation is Experiencing Spirituality:
        Begin with a changed LifeStyle free of wants, greed, anger, covetousness, pride, jealousy and “I-Me-Mine!” Living Mindfully, for a long time, where thought, speech and action are in synchrony, allows for stillness in body and mind: whether walking, talking or sitting.
        Sit on a chair with feet on the ground (covered with blanket) or in padmasana. Focus eyes on the kutastha behind and between eyebrows.
        Mentally Salute elders and teachers.
        Practice pranayama:
        puraka (4 seconds inspiration) ~
        antara kumbhaka (4 seconds end inspiratory pause) ~
        rechaka (4 seconds expiration) ~
        bahiya kumbhaka (4 seconds expiratory pause.)
        Continue practice at 6 second intervals; 8 second intervals; 12 second intervals; and 24 second intervals to arrive at kumbhaka.
        Both expiration and inspiration should stop and arrive at kumbhaka for as long as is possible.
        Here depend solely on Consciousness or God or Brahman.
        That is the highest aim of life.
        It is only through experiencing Kumbhaka that Kumbhaka is mastered.

        1. Sneh Chakraburtty says:

          Absolution is freedom and pardon through divine forgiveness for one and all acts of sins of transgression of wrongdoing, offence or crime. The mighty Creator created this entire universe with the aid of penances.
          Penances are of many kinds. They exhibit themselves through various outlets.
          Of all kinds of penances, the ones where one is abstaining from pleasure and enjoyment, or abstention from food, is the highest and best.
          Renunciation constitutes the highest penance. People keep their senses under control for purposes of taking care of their virtue for heaven.
          With respect to such controls over the senses it is also practiced for the acquisition of virtue. There is no penance by a human higher than abstention from food.
          The Rishis, the gods, human beings, beasts, birds, and whatever other creatures there are, mobile or immobile, are all devoted to penances, and whatever success they win is won through self-punishment.
          Thus it was through penance that the gods acquired their superiority. These (luminaries in this and higher firmaments) that have got their shares of felicity are always the results of penance.
          Without doubt, through penance alone, is the very status of godhead acquired, staets the Mahabharata.
          Bhishma said to the young King Yudhishtra: ‘Those that are possessed of knowledge say that everything has penance for its root. That foolish person who has not undergone penances does not meet with the rewards of even his own acts!’ http://www.hinduism.co.za/penance.htm
          Whatever things there are, that are apparently unattainable, are sure to be won by the aid of penance.
          Bathing in the holy Ganges River and participating in the Maha Kumbh Mela provides modern people a place to cover all their absolution needs.
          Absolution is therefore, an integral part of the Sacrament of Penance.
          In Christianity, it asks for a sacramental confession of mortal sins: to a priest who prays the wrongdoing of the confessor be absolved. Absolution is offered as a Divine Service.

    Millenials amidst Growth of Science and Business through Corporative Globalization
    Science was welcomed as a godsend alternative by people of Developing Countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America, once called “Third World Countries” that were battered by superstition and barbaric practices and rituals. Science (technology inclusive) gradually became the dominant force during the latter half of the last century. Many countries like India’s secular form of government were encouraged. Many made investments in scientific thinking. Some, like the Dogons of Mali avoided ancient 4000 years cultural traditions of the elders about the Sirius Star System Mysteries; and the over 5000 years old cultural heritage of Ancient India have taken a backseat behind modern science. Greek, Egyptian and Persian Heritage have coe to the same end!
    The dualistic division of activities into God-related activities (where emotion is the dominant mindset) and Real-life daily activities (where reason, calculative logic are the dominant mindset) by the common people: has become more and more pronounced in recent decades as man-made science started creating more “miracles” than what God used to earlier. Unfortunately, the scientists/engineers/inventors creating products/goods had/have no connections with municipal bodies or government agencies or any incentive for designing implementing sustainable disposal mechanisms of these products, until recently.
    The paradox is that business has always existed and operated in a sustainable manner for thousands of years in these countries, until recently when all traditional practices were cast aside in the modernization/globalization process: especially during the last 3 decades.
    As a result, the thousands of years old connections between man and nature, as well as, between God and Man have all become weakened; or severed by various cultural changes. The coddled Millenials or the Generation Y (of ALL Countries) have common characteristics, values, political and religious views, and delusional cultural values that are not complimentary.
    Being inherently self-centered or overconfident is the truth for millennials. They are lso adapting quickly to a world undergoing rapid political, corporative and technological change. They are confident, self-assured and even realistic at a time when it can be difficult just to get by.

      Millenials are lonely because of disconnection from the Whole: It is all about Love Lost with a mortal or God!
      Loneliness http://www.thehindu.com/features/kids/loneliness
      I’m feeling hollow and it’s hard to swallow
      It feels so bad when you don’t know where to stand
      Feeling like I’m the loneliest person in the world but I want to be like a bird
      I want to fly high up in the sky
      But my wings are glued and that is to be rued
      If you were here today I would not have to see this day
      You don’t have any clue about how much I’m missing you
      I loved you with all my trueness but in return I got only loneliness
      I can no longer bear the pain in my chest and now I think I need some rest.

      “I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is ending up with people who make you feel all alone.” Robin Williams.
      Loneliness is where humans allow the soul to grow IN a silent tunnel of solitude, alone and immersed in the privacy of mental embrace of the Lord of Love Nobody truly understands the why, except yourself what you feel and endure. So enter that tunnel and allow the soul to grow. The best you’ll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let humankind stand in your way.
      It is the combination of a love affair and loneliness that enables the fighter in each of us to constantly reach out to help others. Renouncing your private world of loneliness, and discovering a world outside your tunnel is a matter for good cheer!

    Where/What is the True Nature?
    …Mind?
    …Self?
    The question raised by someone on Facebook is: What and where is the Cause of our True Nature; is it in the human Mind or is it the Self.
    The ‘what’ must be the Creator Brahma who is the Knower of ‘what’ who is both Mind and Self. The Mind is what experiences pain and pleasure. Therefore Mind is the ‘knower’ of pleasure and pain.
    What empowers the Mind to experience such emotions? The ‘self’-power within or the blinded Self, is wherefrom the Mind experiences both pleasure and hurt.
    Then what is the ‘true nature’ of both Mind and Self? The ‘self’- Mind is truly of the True Nature of the Self.

      Involuntary Compulsive Actions & Responsible Voluntary Actions:
      Knowledge-based-actions are voluntary and avoidable by choice and others are involuntarily compulsive acts because of Ignorance.
      Where Knowledge-based actions are one’s lifestyle, they are based on a self-imposed moral judgement. They come from a much needed willed preference, based upon rational reflection as a forethought, before actions manifest as expressions of goodness.
      Many ask if involuntary actions triggered by compulsions and Ignorance are guaged as caustic and immoral in society.
      The answer to this dilemma is that humankind is moral and not the Creator’s degenerated creation; therefore whether Ignorant or Learned, the Law of Action and Reaction applies to both: actions, both voluntary and compulsively involuntary.

    Who is an “Individual?”
    “…an individual is more than just an identity, and that free men and women do not need to be protected from discomfiting ideas and unpopular arguments. More than ever, they need to be exposed to them, so that we may revive the art of disagreement that are the best foundation of intelligent democratic life.” https://www.nytimes.com.
    Meanwhile many eon years ago The Gita, XVI. 4 stated this about humankind:
    “Hypocrisy, pride, ego, anger, arrogance and ignorance belong, O Partha, to him who is born to the heritage of the demons.” The Gita, XVI. 4
    Hypocricy is pretending to be what one is not. It takes birth from anger, arrogance, and pride – meaning it emerges from the Ego!
    Pride harms only the pompous, but arrogance because of imperious pride engenders condescension. An egotistical persona is often rude and offensive towards friends, relatives, contemporaries and everyone and their brother, who she or he come in contact with.
    Ego is inflated pride of prosperity, rank, education, erudition or culture etc. It mirrors in the spirit of demeanor that which is overbearingly overconfident. While thinking highly of himself the ego views poorly of others. He retains much for himself but grants little room to others.
    Arrogance is a self-absorbing sense of one’s own greatness and superiority over others. In their presence pride manifests as arrogance. It is self-satisfaction in a personal pride that denies seeing praiseworthy goodness in others.
    Anger expressing as wrath is an intense emotional hostile response to threaten or to a hurt provocation. A strong feeling of displeasure and belligerence in “I” is aroused by a wrong done to them or an ire against another.
    Unawareness is lack of learning of useful knowledge, culture and informaton. It has a degrading quality when in company with the arrogance of possessions of treasures.
    Vanity is a pride that craves for applause and appreciation, stemming from a sense of self-importance. Its expression ot superirity and priviledge manifests as rudeness which naturally breeds hostility in others.
    The ego is the “I” persona! It is not a permanent reality.
    Ignorance is about “Who I AM;” it is a concept based ignorance that elevates Ego to the status of reality – an illusion and delusion of Maya.
    Only illumination and understanding the exprience of Existence-Consciousness-Ecstacy in Deep Sleep, brings about the Wisdom of “I AM who I AM!”

    End Goal of Life Well-lived through Dharma:
    There are rules to live by that make life worth living. Happiness is never the goal: it is the end result of a life-well-lived!
    Yoga as the Path of Life focuses on Dharma. It has a profound relationship between a life of a thriving well-being and contentment through happiness.
    Most contemporary understandings of happiness are hedonic, because it is subjective and is therefore of a brief duration only.
    Psychologists claim ‘Contentment-Happiness’ comes from “Engagement in and with Everyday Life.” They explain that a good life is one that is ‘full of flow experiences.’
    The metaphor of “flow” is one that many use to describe the sense of effortless action they feel, in moments that stand out as the “best” in their lives.
    Yet, athletes, mystics, and artists do very different things when they reach this ‘flow’. Their descriptions of the ‘experience’ are remarkably similar. It is ‘happiness!’
    Happiness in humanity, is the highest good and the end of all our aims in life.
    It is also an end in itself of all our activities’ aim. It is of supreme good to one’s own ‘self!’
    People disagree on what makes for a happy or superior life when taking into account a person’s life as a whole.
    Aristotle defines ‘happiness is for a common good’: an activity of the ‘rational soul’ if it is in accordance with virtue.
    A virtuous person is someone who performs distinctive activity in accordance with ‘dharma’.
    Our ‘nutritive soul’ governs only growth and nutrition.
    Our ‘sensitive soul,’ governs our movement and instinct.
    But, humans have a distinctive ‘rational soul’, or atma, which governs thoughts of virtue and exercises in us, that, which is of supreme good and of moral virtue.
    Aristotle defines moral virtue as a disposition to behave in the right manner and as a means to respond correctly between extremes of deficiency and excesses of our vices.
    Where do we learn this?
    We learn moral virtue primarily through habit and practice rather than through reasoning and instruction – perhaps also from memories of past instructions given by virtuous parents and teachers in past lives.
    A virtuous person exhibits all virtues: they do not properly exist as distinct qualities but rather as different aspects of a virtuous life.
    We do not come into the world in total forgetfulness and in utter darkness. We are born with certain memories and habits acquired in the previous births. We find that none is born without Desire for Happiness.
    The final destiny of the soul for Hindus is to jump off the wheel of reincarnation.That is ultimate Happiness is acquired through living a life of Dharma.
