Five Types of People – from Nastik to Astik

By Dr K K Aggarwal
Filed Under Spirituality - Science Behind Rituals | Tagged With: , , | | Comments Off on Five Types of People – from Nastik to Astik

Following are the five types of people:

  1. Nastik: Those who do not believe in God.
  2. Astik: For whom God exists.
  3. Those who believe that God also exists in them (I and the God are the same)
  4. Those who believe in Tat TvamAsi (God not only exists in me but also in you)
  5. Those who believe that God is in everybody

People who believe that God exists are fearful people and they always fear God. People who see God in themselves, live a disciplined Satvik life and do not indulge in activities that are not God-friendly.

People who believe that God is not only in them but also in you, treat every person the same way as they treat themselves. People for whom God is everywhere always work for the welfare of the society.

  1. There are two types of people; those who believe in either Dvaita or Advaita philosophy.
  2. For people who believe in Dvaita philosophy, God and human being are different.
  3. Those who believe in Advaita philosophy believe that God is within them.
  4. In Hinduism, the first group believes in Sanatan Dharma and does Moorti pooja (idol worship) and the second Arya Samaj, which does not believe in Moorti pooja.
  5. In both situations, medically the message is one.
  6. If God is different than you, then you try to be like Him and if God is in within you, then you are Him.
  7. In both the situations, we should deal with our body the same way as we deal with God.
  8. Anything which is not offered to God should not be offered to our body such as cigarettes, drugs etc or such things should be consumed in less quantity (onion, garlic, radish etc.).
  9. We never worship God with hydrogenated oil; we always worship him either with oil or with Desi Ghee. The message is we should not consume trans fats.
  10.  “Bhagwan ko bhog lagate hain” and we never feed God. The message is we should eat less.
  11. Amongst all Gods, only Lord Shiva is said to consume bhang and alcohol that too only in his incarnation of Bhairon, which indicates that both alcohol and bhang can be consumed in some quantity only in special situations meaning that they cannot be consumed without medical supervision.
  12. Anything grown under the ground is not offered to God, thus, these items should not be eaten or eaten in moderation.
  13. We never offer white salt and white rice to God. They are also bad for human beings.
  14. Gur, shakkar, brown rice and puffed rice are offered to God. They can be consumed by human beings.

You are the Temple of God and the Spirit of the God Dwells in You

By Dr K K Aggarwal
Filed Under Spirituality - Science Behind Rituals | Tagged With: , , , , , , , , | | Comments Off on You are the Temple of God and the Spirit of the God Dwells in You

This sutra from the Bible reflects the union between the spirit and the soul. The ‘Spirit’ represents the Parmatama or the Brahman and ‘You’ represents the individualized spirit or the Soul (Jivatama).

A temple is a place of worship and also the place where the God resides. Every human being represents a temple (place of worship) where God exists (one’s soul) and this soul is nothing but the essence of God (the spirit).

One should treat every individual in the same manner as the same spirit dwells in every human being. The soul is also the reflection of individual’s past and present karmic expressions. Most people are in the habit of looking and searching for God in artificial temples, gurudwaras and churches, not realizing that the same God is present within us, provided we undertake the internal journey to look for Him.

He is present in between thoughts in the silent zone and can be approached by adopting any of the three pathways: Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Gyana (Gnana) Yoga.

Doing selfless work with detachment to its results; working with the principles of duty, devotion and discipline and/or regularly doing Primordial Sound Meditation or other types of meditations can help one reach the stage of self–realization or meeting one’s true self. Once there, one can have all the happiness in life.

Temple enhances soul to soul connectivity

By Dr K K Aggarwal
Filed Under Spirituality - Science Behind Rituals | Tagged With: , , , , , , , , | | Comments Off on Temple enhances soul to soul connectivity

A Temple, Gurudwara or a Masjid can also be understood by studying the concept of computer internet-based virtual e-communication.

The physical body can be compared to that of a computer hardware and the subtle body with three application softwares of a computer namely, Mind (Microsoft Word), Intellect (Excel) and Ego (Power Point).

These three application softwares are controlled by Chitta or the life force, which is a combination of Prana, Tejas and Ojas (or Operational Software in computer language). Without chitta or operational software, the body cannot function. A dead person (dead computer) will be devoid of chitta (operational software).

The application and operation softwares in turn are controlled by the soul, which is nothing but energized information or soul. This energized information in the body in Vedic language is called Shiva Shakti, where Shiva represents information and Shakti represents the energy or the power of the software.

This energized information or the soul can be equated to a very high speed internet connection www.god.com-drkkaggarwal for me. For another person, for example, Mr B S Sokhi, the soul communication will be www.god.com-bssokhi.

Both these souls will be communicated to a virtual internet called GOD or SPIRIT. The same can be represented as www.GOD.com and in this virtual consciousness or GOD, these pages will be similar to Facebook pages for individual members. For example, there will be a page called www.GOD.com-drkkaggarwal and another page called www.GOD.com-bssokhi.

Whatever you do is converted into a virtual memory and a copy of that is saved in both www.god.com and www.GOD.com. This way the phrase that GOD is watching each and every action can be explained.

Increasing one’s connectivity with GOD is like increasing the bandwidth of a computer internet. The same can be done in the body by controlling the mind, intellect and ego and by learning the process of Meditation, Pranayama and living a parasympathetic lifestyle.

Mobile towers or satellites are used to enhance connectivity for computers.

The natural towers in the body are called Chakras or the automatic ganglion. They behave like internal towers and intensify our communication with the soul and the spirit. In the outside world, this work is done by a Temple, Gurudwara or a Masjid.

According to the Vedic philosophy, we should practice focusing on our Chakras or ganglions regularly to increase our internal communication.

With collective consciousness of people (more than 1% of the population) focusing on a particular area or a stone, it acquires the powers of a communication tower or satellite.

A stone that becomes a focus of the collective consciousness of the people becomes a GOD ideal and the process is called Pratishthan.

A Mandir, Gurudwara or a Masjid, where the collective consciousness of the people gets focused, becomes a source of increase connectivity between the body and the soul. A person sitting in such an environment therefore, finds himself more near God, Allah or Wahe Guru.

The story of Hiranyakashyap where God comes out of the pillar on the request of the Prahlad and kills Hiranyakashyap basically proves that even the impossible is possible if you focus your concentration on the object of concentration and give preference to object of concentration over other thoughts.

This explains how in the past the collective consciousness of the people could bring rains or light candles or diyas. This also forms the basis of collective prayer.

The collective thoughts of the people get posted to the virtual Mandir, Gurudwara and Masjid and when a critical mass of 1% is reached, everyone will start working towards what is taught.

More about Debts

By Dr K K Aggarwal
Filed Under Spirituality - Science Behind Rituals | Tagged With: , , , , , , , | | Comments Off on More about Debts

Hindu scriptures have talked three types of rin (debts): Dev rin, Pitra rin and Rishi rin.God or the devtas gave us the consciousness, parents gave us our body and teachers gave us the knowledge or intellect.In Vedic language, our body is a mix of mind, body and soul which can be equated to three rins of mind (teachers), body (parents) and soul (Rishi & Gods). In computer language, this can be equated to operational software (God), application software (teachers) and computer hardware (parents).

Why are most temples located in faraway places?

By Dr K K Aggarwal
Filed Under Spirituality - Science Behind Rituals | Tagged With: , , , , , , | | Comments Off on Why are most temples located in faraway places?

Most temples represent God or the spirit or the deity located in the temple or mandir situated in an area at the outskirts of the city. A spiritual atmosphere is one that is devoid of pollution and which promotes rajasik or tamasik behavior. The silence of the spiritual atmosphere reduces the internal noise and helps us onward in our inner journey. The inner journey of being in touch with one’s consciousness requires detachment from worldly pleasures and the withdrawal of the five senses of the body.

To be in touch with one’s consciousness, one needs to bypass the disturbed state of consciousness controlled by emotion, memories and desires, through mind, intellect and ego. This usually requires a prolonged period of persistence and undertaking the inward journey devoid of external stimuli. The parikrama, which means “the path surrounding something”, incorporating many long walks helps to detoxify the mind and thus shifts the consciousness from a disturbed state to an undisturbed, calm state.

A long walk not only offers physical benefits but one also gets the benefits of nature as one’s inner stimuli are exposed to the outer stimuli during the parikrama. The person is often required to walk bare foot on natural ground, inhale pure air and concentrate and listen to the sounds of the nature, birds and trees. This proximity to nature helps in the inward spiritual journey and shifts one from the sympathetic to parasympathetic mode described by lowering of blood pressure and pulse rate. The final happiness invariably comes from within us at the time of final darshan when a person invariably closes his eyes and experiences God within his heart.

Most temples today are being constructed in residential colonies and provide a holy atmosphere to people right at their doorstep. However, they do not have the same spiritual significance and benefits as a temple located at the outskirts of a city.

There is no way a person can go to a temple in the vicinity of his house and detoxify his mind as this can hardly be achieved in minutes unless you are a siddha yogi, and if you are one, you need not go to a temple as the temple is within you.

In Vedic texts, it has been clearly mentioned that to acquire powers and inner happiness, rishi, munis had to do tapasya for months and years together. This tells us that spiritual well-being is acquired over an extended period of time as the process of detoxification is a long drawn process. Cars and other vehicles should not be allowed near temples as the basic motive is to have a pollution-free atmosphere and to give time and space for the mind to detoxify.

The vast power of the Spirit

Om Poornamadah Om Poornamadah Poornamidam Poornaat Poornamudachyate Poornasya Poornamaadaaya Poornameva Avasihyate The whole is whole if you take away the whole away from the whole the whole will still remain. That is infinite this is infinite from the infinite the infinite has come out. Having taken the infinite out of the infinite the infinite alone remains . In Vedanta That represents super consciousness God or the Brahman and This the visible universe Atman which makes up our body is 99.99 space and if we look at the rest it is also nothing but space or void. This void or akasha is what is called Brahman God or consciousness and is a web of energized information. This web of information of inner space called inner consciousness is the Atman or the Soul. This is connected with the outer space in the universe having a similar web of energized information called the Spirit or Brahmand. This spirit has been given many names by different religions. Allah Islam Buddha Buddhism Brahman Hinduism Christ Christianity or Wahe Guru Sikhism all signify the same. This spirit the energized field of information is a powerful expression of live energy which can move faster than the speed of light. Soul is nothing but an individualized expression of the spirit. This energy containing information in the spirit cannot be seen felt touched tasted or smelt. It is beyond the perception of five senses. One cannot destroy it with a weapon fire water or air. This consciousness is embedded in the space of each and every cell of the body. It is like sugar added to the milk. Once added you cannot find it as it gets embedded with each and every drop of the milk. Soul originates from the spirit. Each soul differs from the other by way of the subtle layer of consciousness called the sukshma sharira which is controlled by the triad of actions memories and desires. Spirit is like light which is always positive and only removes darkness. The basic nature of the consciousness is truth and bliss . The soul and the spirit are devoid of hatred anger or jealousy and are full of unconditional love. They are nothing but a treasury of information about everything. This infinite information is capable of doing anything including miracles. It is like the flame of a candle which can light an infinite number of candles while still retaining its illumination to the same degree. Dr Deepak Chopra once said that the soul is like the voice of Lata Mangeshkar coming out of a radio and even if you break the radio you will not find Lata Mangeshkar in it. Similarly even if you cut the body into pieces you cannot find the physical presence of the spirit. Spirit is present all over be it the universe or the living beings. Any amount of spirit taken out from it will not make any difference to the spirit. In religious terms the infinite or the vastness is equated and described by the blue color and that is one reason why most of the gods are represented by the blue color or are shown in the background of blue sky. This only represents the vastness and infinite character of the consciousness. One of the Gurus explained to his disciple the description of the spirit by the following equation. 1 1 1 1 1 1 or in other words everything is one. One can also explain it by the equation that infinity when added subtracted multiplied or divided by infinity will result in infinity only. This infinite potential in our mind is present in between the thoughts and can be experienced by enabling oneself to go in between the thoughts by a process called mediation. One can experience the silent gap between the thoughts either with the use of primordial sound mantra as a vehicle or by way of yoga. People who have learnt meditation and have achieved the ability to go into the silent gaps can accomplish everything in their life using the principles of intention and attention. After any intention is introduced in the silent gap a new reality can be created. That which is born of the flash is a flash that which is born of the spirit is spirit John Disclaimer The views expressed in this write up are my own .

All those out there who feel you are at your wits end wondering how things don t ever work out for you can now relax and dwell on all those failures that life has taken you through and turn failure into success. Failure doesn t mean you are a failure. But it does mean you haven t succeeded yet. Failure doesn t mean you have accomplished nothing. It does mean you have learned something. Failure doesn t mean you have been a foolish. It does mean you had a lot of faith. Failure doesn t mean you ve been discouraged. It does mean you were willing to try. Failure doesn t mean you don t know what to do. It does mean you have to do it in a different way. Failure doesn t mean you are inferior. It does mean you are not perfect. Failure doesn t mean you have wasted your life. It does mean you have a reason to start afresh. Failure doesn t mean you should give up. It does mean you must try harder. Failure doesn t mean you ll never make it. It does mean it will take a little longer. Failure doesn t mean God has abandoned you. It does mean God has a better idea.

Did all Gods suffer before death?

By Dr K K Aggarwal
Filed Under Spirituality - Science Behind Rituals | Tagged With: , , , | | Comments Off on Did all Gods suffer before death?

Most Gods and spiritual gurus had suffered in their last days. Lord Krishna had a nonhealing wound, Jesus Christ was crucified, Bhagwan Rajneesh had an infectious disease, Swami Chinmayanand had low functioning heart, Maharshi Mahesh Yogi had heart and pancreatic disease, Satya Sai Baba was put on a ventilator etc. When they were God–like personalities, why did they suffer in their last days? The answer to this comes from Vedic knowledge within the concept of rebirth. Vedanta says that the very fact that we are born means that in the last birth we did not attain moksha or liberation. In other words, this means that there were some sufferings yet to be faced. You are born to face those sufferings. When you face the last suffering, there are high chances that that suffering may be your last suffering before liberation. Most Gods or saints who died in a phase of suffering may mean that they did not attain liberation. A person who dies suddenly or unnaturally would mean that he would have to take rebirth to face more sufferings. According to me, terminal sufferings are good from spiritual point of view.

Why is there a ritual or tradition of offering food to God before eating?

By Dr K K Aggarwal
Filed Under Spirituality - Science Behind Rituals | Tagged With: , , | | Comments Off on Why is there a ritual or tradition of offering food to God before eating?

This is a Vedic reminder to oneself that one should eat only those foods that are offered to God. Each time you offer food to God, it is a reminder to you to change your decision and choices. For example, alcohol, tobacco, onion, garlic, radish, etc. are not offered to God. If they are part of your food, there are chances that you will not consume these food items, if you observe this ritual.

Over a period of time people have stopped following this ritual and now eat some foods, which cannot be offered to God in all their 21 meals during a week. This is the reason why the incidence of lifestyle diseases is increasing in the community.
