The (10) Ten Divisions of Life Air
Compiled: by Mohini Devi Dasi

The activity of consciousness is performed through the air of life, which is of ten divisions.
The airs of life are called prāṇa, apāna, udāna, vyāna and samāna and are also differently qualified as nāga, kūrma, kṛkara, devadatta and dhanañjaya. The consciousness of the soul becomes polluted by the material atmosphere, and thus various activities are exhibited in the false ego of bodily identification. These various activities are described in Bhagavad-gītā (2.41) as bahu-śākhā hy anantāś ca buddhayo ’vyavasāyinām. The conditioned soul is bewildered into various activities for want of pure consciousness. In pure consciousness the activity is one. The consciousness of the individual soul becomes one with the supreme consciousness when there is complete synthesis between the two.

The monist believes that there is only one consciousness, whereas the sātvatas, or the devotees, believe that although there is undoubtedly one consciousness, they are one because there is agreement. The individual consciousness is advised to dovetail with the supreme consciousness, as instructed by the Lord in Bhagavad-gītā (18.66): sarva-dharmān parityajya mām ekaṁ śaraṇaṁ vraja. The individual consciousness (Arjuna) is advised to dovetail with the supreme consciousness and thus maintain his conscious purity. It is foolish to try to stop the activities of consciousness, but they can be purified when they are dovetailed with the Supreme. This consciousness is divided into three modes of self-identification according to the proportion of purity: ādhyātmika, or self-identification with the body and mind, ādhibhautika, or self-identification with the material products, and ādhidaivika, or self-identification as a servant of the Lord. Of the three, ādhidaivika self-identification is the beginning of purity of consciousness in pursuance of the desire of the Lord. (SB/3/6/7)

THE 10 KINDS OF LIFE AIR

The ten kinds of air are described as follows:

1) – prāṇa-vāyu
2) – apāna-vāyu
3) – udāna-vāyu
4) – vyāna-vāyu
5) – samāna-vāyu
6) – nāga-vāyu
7) – kūrma-vāyu
8) – kṛkara-vāyu
9) – devadatta-vāyu
10)- dhanañjaya-vāyu

The main air passing through the nose in breathing is called prāṇa. The air which passes through the rectum as evacuated bodily air is called apāna. The air which adjusts the foodstuff within the stomach and which sometimes sounds as belching is called samāna. The air which passes through the throat and the stoppage of which constitutes suffocation is called the udāna air. Aid the total air which circulates throughout the entire body is called the vyāna air. Subtler than these five airs, there are others also. That which facilitates the opening of the eyes, mouth, etc., is called nāga air. The air which increases appetite is called kṛkara air. The air which helps contraction is called kūrma air. The air which helps relaxation by opening the mouth wide (in yawning) is called devadatta air, and the air which helps sustenance is called dhanañjaya air. [Read More…]

Killing birds by 5G and HAARP!

 

In this age of Kali the propensity for mercy is almost nil. Consequently there is always fighting and wars between men and nations. Men do not understand that because they unrestrictedly kill so many animals, they also must be slaughtered like animals in big wars. This is very much evident in the Western countries. In the West, slaughterhouses are maintained without restriction, and therefore every fifth or tenth year there is a big war in which countless people are slaughtered even more cruelly than the animals. Sometimes during war, soldiers keep their enemies in concentration camps and kill them in very cruel ways. These are reactions brought about by unrestricted animal-killing in the slaughterhouse and by hunters in the forest. Proud, demoniac persons do not know the laws of nature, or the laws of God. Consequently, they unrestrictedly kill poor animals, not caring for them at all. In the Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement, animal-killing is completely prohibited. One is not accepted as a bona fide student in this movement unless he promises to follow the four regulative principles: no animal-killing, no intoxication, no illicit sex and no gambling. This Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement is the only means by which the sinful activities of men in this Kali-yuga can be counteracted.

1. Life & Radiation

All living creatures have to emit and absorb electromagnetic waves of a specific spectrum. But there are limits for the energy intensity.

Too little results in deficiencystarvationdisease and death.

Too much leads too injuries and sudden death.

Energy is a source of life, but can be turned into a weapon of targeted mass killing.

The use of the spectrum of energy has a similarity with the sonar waves, which various whales use for communication or paralyzing and killing of their prey.

Very intensive military sonar causes death and damage of these mammals by destroying the specific tissue of their biological sonar system. [Read More…]

Srila Prabhupada’s Books Are Not Authorized

Srila Prabhupada’s Books Are Not Authorized

 

I always assumed that every word that I read in a BBT book was authorized by Srila Prabhupada. Despite overhearing occasional chatter to the contrary, I did not pay much attention to the detractors. For decades, I was a mushroom in the cellar. By Prabhupada’s mercy, I gradually woke up from my illusion to find myself in the company of a fringe minority. The rest of Iskcon was living in a different paradigm. I was no longer welcomed in the Matrix. By Krishna’s inconceivable mercy, I found my way back through the labyrinth. This is my story.

Background:

As the founder, director, and engine behind Iskcon Television from the late seventies onwards, I was an integral part of the international preaching effort. I not only produced shows worldwide, but I was responsible for collecting the funds from the zonal acaryas who were benefiting from monthly receiving new programs in the temples under their jurisdiction. Financial transactions are where the spiritual rubs right up against the material. You really get to see the attachments to money and power. To say that I had difficulty collecting from some leaders is an understatement. Despite agreements and fulfillments, they held onto their currencies without regard for keeping promises and putting me into awkward situations and prolonged anxiety. I earned a hard-learned lesson: what you see is not necessarily what is true. Krishna was teaching me: look under every rock. Unfortunately, I was a slow learner.

When the Bhagavad gita was republished in 1983, I paid no attention. Actually, no one paid much attention. I mean, “No one.” The manuscript had been sent to some GBC’s, but these many years later, all admitted to not reading it. Ramesvara was the North American BBT Trustee (although the books were never published from the Trust; always from Iskcon Los Angeles). He had ordered it edited. Prabhupada had authorized errors and mistakes to be corrected. Ramesvara also didn’t read through it. A few GBC’s had met in Detroit and talk ed about some changes with the chosen editor, Jayadwaita Swami, but they just scratched the surface. Ultimately, there were thousands of changes – some doing exactly as Srila Prabhupada had requested by fixing mistakes. However, there were many changes that reached far beyond Prabhupada’s mandate. Even “The Blessed Lord” was replaced by “The Supreme Personality of Godhead.” Strange that no one noticed, but reading Srila Prabhupada’s books was never a priority for most in those days. Making disciples was the main focus of the preaching. The changes were, well, small change, to the bigger picture of growing ever bigger followings.

“We praise in succession Sri Krsna, Brahma, Devarsi (Narada), Badarayana (Vyasa), Madhva, Padmanabha, Nrhari, Madhava, Aksobhya, Jayatirtha, Jnanasindhu, Dayanidhi, Vidyanidhi, Rajendra, Jayadharman, and also Purusottama, Brahmanya, and Vyasatirtha. Then we worship with devotion Laksmipati, Madhavendra, his disciples — Isvara (Puri), Advaita, and Nityananda, world teachers all — and the deity (himself), the disciple of Isvara, Sri Caitanya, by whom, through the gift of love for Krsna, the world has been saved.” From Sripada Baladeva Vidyabhusana – Prameya Ratnavali, 1,7.

“Not much has been recorded of his life history. Some facts are available from his “Vijaya” composed by Sri Srinivasa Tirtha, who is a descendant of the order. His father was Ramacharya with the nickname of Poogavana (areca farm). Possibly he owned one. Sri Brahmanya was born in Nrihari kshethra on the banks of the Cauvery and was named Narasimha. The boy was sent to Sri Purushotthama Tirtha at the young age of 7 after his Upanayana samskara. Sri Purushotthama was next in line to Sri Jayadhwaja whose name is preserved for posterity for his founding of the Dvaita School in the north, especially in Navadvipa (modern Bengal). ISKCON followers call his name as Jayadharma”.

“Narasimha was a precocious pupil with great intelligence, devotion to God and disinterest in the affairs of the world. Sri Purushotthama had already received some indications in dreams about his pupil. The education of Narasimha was completed in a short while and he was also given the oaths of Asceticism and the name Brahmanya Tirtha by his Guru. Very soon the latter entered a cave near Abbur and disappeared from human view. A Miracle attributed to Sri Brahmanya Tirtha was that when he sprinkled some consecrated water on cold cooked food after puja, it became fresh and hot”. [Read More…]
