The Vanamahotsav Competition

“Hey! Ankur. You seem to be in a hurry so early in the morning” exclaimed Rishi. Ankur was flying past without noticing his presence.

“Sorry Rishi, did not notice you. I was in a hurry. I am on my way to Naimisaranyam. All the animals there are celebrating vanamahotsav and have invited me and Ankita as Chief Guests. Ankita left last week, as they had requested her help during the week-long celebrations.” replied Ankur.

“That seems quite interesting. Do you have some time to elaborate, Ankur?”, requested Rishi.

“Sure Rishi”. Ankur readily obliged and started explaining, “All the animals have taken efforts to make this a grand event. They have various competitions like running race, tree climbing and jumping, flying, swimming, burrowing, hopping, crawling, etc.,. All the animals are going to take part in all the events. That is the reason they have requested Ankita for a longer stay.”

Rishi was shocked to hear this. “Come again! Don’t tell me that Elephants will take part in tree climbing and lions will take part in crawling, while rabbits take part in flying. How can all animals take part in all the events?” he exclaimed.

“No need to worry Rishi. The animals are being trained to do so” clarified Ankur.

“Intelligent…” responded Rishi tapping its beak as usual, “Ok… let’s catch up after your return. Wish you and Ankita All the BEST”

Knowing Rishi well, Ankur felt he was trying to communicate some message.

Is he trying to awaken my intelligence or Is he doubting it?

With the thought flow thus initiated Ankur, continued the journey to Naimisaranyam.

He recollected his and Ankita’s visits to Naimisaranyam during the past couple of years; their efforts to make them intelligent… “Are we really making them intelligent? Can we make animals intelligent like humans? Are humans acting intelligently?…” the flow of questions continued… Ankur got into flying meditation, trying to find answers to his questions. As the time proceeded clarity emerged. In such a relaxed state of thought flow and awareness, Ankur became clear on the task ahead. He thanked Rishi mentally for alerting him. Better late than never, he thought…

As he neared the festival venue there was loud noise and arguments. Ankita was caught in the midst of all this turmoil, waiting eagerly for Ankur’s help. As he landed at the venue all the animals surrounded him. Ankur took the shape of the Lion. Ankita got the message.

She announced, “The King of the Jungle for the Festival period is your friend ANKUR. You may make your representations to him in an orderly manner. I request the Lion King to take the seat next to his best friend and chief guest, ANKUR”

Surprisingly, the Lion King also looked relaxed. He was relieved of the burden of resolving the chaotic situation and restoring peace in the jungle.

“I am the strongest animal in the forest? I deserve the all-rounder cup? The monkey did not train me properly to climb trees and jump across them. He cheated me to win the cup. See how his poor training hurt me badly.” complained the elephant. Ankur’s eyes fell on the elephant’s wounds and broken trees at the tree-climbing venue.

“Don’t lie elephant. I did not win the cup. The eagle cheated me. She did not train me well to fly.” the monkey pointed to his broken legs.

“You speak as though, I have won the cup. I truly deserve the honour. There is no one who can reach the skies. The fish did not teach me to swim. See, what happened to my wings.” the eagle lamented.

The fish was jumping restlessly. Ankita asked her to cool. “If you can reach the skies, I can reach to the bottom of the oceans. Can anyone do so? I too missed the cup, because the frog did not teach me to hop. He did not even teach me to come out of the water and stay alive. If not for Ankita’s help, I would have died the moment I came out of water to take part in the hopping race.”

The frog reacted immediately. “My time was completely spent on following the rabbit requesting him to teach me burrowing. The rabbit was absolutely non co-operative.”

All eyes turned to the rabbit. He sat calmly chewing the carrot in his hands. Then he slowly responded, “I am glad to see you my friend Ankur. I felt it was foolish to teach a frog make burrows. Sorry, I disobeyed your instructions.”

The Lion King got furious. “Rabbit is the main culprit. He did not co-operate and all the animals suffered. The entire festive mood got disturbed because of non-coperation of one tiny rabbit. He should be sent out of Naimisaranyam.” he recommended to Ankur.

“Yes he should be sent out” echoed the entire forest. All animals were in unison.

Ankur roared. There was a firm message in his voice. Everyone became silent. He invited the rabbit to the daïs. “I declare Rabbit as the winner of the festival.”

Everyone was surprised. “This is unfair” they cried in unison.

“We have a lot of regard to you Ankur. But, this act of yours isn’t convincing and unacceptable. You owe an explanation.” The LION King expressed his dissent.

“Thank you Dear Friend” responded Ankur with a smile. With re-assuring poise, he continued”, I very much understand and appreciate your reservations. I am also to be blamed for the current state of affairs at Naimisaranyam. This is a divine forest, where Srimadbhagavatham was revealed to the humanity by revered sage Suka Brahma. So, Ankita and I chose this place to start our mission of making animals also intelligent like humans and started our work two years ago. Out of ignorance and ego, we thought we are intelligent than God, who created us. There is a purpose behind this creation. If He made animals to act based on instincts, there is a purpose behind it. We tried to overrule it. We tried to make you all intelligent like humans. You all have some distinct features and qualities. Eagle is right in mentioning, there is no one who can fly as high he can. Monkeys are made to jump, not fly. Fish is created to stay within water. Snakes are destined to crawl and not fly. There can be no comparison or competition between un-likes. Each one of you is unique”, explained Ankur.

“How does that justify your crowning the Rabbit”, Lion King is still not satisfied. His Ego is hurt badly.

“Rabbit maharaj opened up our eyes. He acted as God destined him to. He did not get misguided by what Ankita and I suggested”, clarified Ankur.

Rabbit continued to enjoy his carrot, undisturbed by what Ankur had to say.

“See the humility of this animal. We declare that the moon shall from now on carry rabbit’s image to remind all animals of their duty”, declared Ankita.

“Thank YOU rabbit maharaj” croaked the frog.

“Thank YOU Ankur and Ankita” all animals expressed gratitude.

Ankita turned into a swan, took dip in the Holy Ganges and flew over all the animals sprinkling the holy water on them. “May the intelligence, we showered on you be withdrawn. Let all the wounds caused to you during the competition be cured. Let all the Naimisaranyam animals live in tune with nature here-after, as ever.” With this sankalpa, Ankur and Ankita chanted some mantras. The nature responded with showers. Their sankalpa took effect immediately.

Bye friends, all the animals bid adieu to Ankur and Ankita happily.

“Love you all friends!” responded Ankur and Ankita regaining their original forms. They started on their return journey.

“Ankur, you came at the right time and saved the jungle and all the animals. That was simply brilliant” appreciated Ankita.

“Rishi deserves the credit, Sis. He hinted me at the right moment.” Ankur briefly narrated his interaction with Rishi that morning.

“I read another message from the interaction, Ankur.” responded Ankita.

Ankur kept a blank face ?!?!

“Humans have a well developed brain and they can act intelligently. But most of them act based on their instincts. They need to rise above their instincts, past memories and act intelligently. That is how God has destined them to act.” Ankita started explaining.

“Ah! I get it. Rishi made us intelligent and gave all powers to help humans. We need to start our work with humans. We started our mission at the wrong place,” added Ankur.

“Another perspective, Ankur! Humans, because of their intellect and free will, are all unique. They cannot and should not compete with each other. Else, they will face challenges like these animals in Naimisaranyam faced” expressed Ankita.

Nodded Ankur in consensus. “I’m just waiting to get back to Rishi to share this insight…”

Essential skills for life goals

Acharya Prafulla Chandra Ray with his efforts through Banyatran Samiti trained students in the spirit of social service

Swami Vivekananda focused on spirituality, concentration, service, culture, character and science as pillars of education

Sri Aurobindo focused on evolution of consciousness

Satis Chandra Mukherjee focused on self-reliance and self-rule in the field of national education

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi with his Nai Talim or Education for life emphasized on self-education through productive works or vocations

Rabindranath Tagore in his establishment of Shantiniketan focused on living close to and in harmony with nature

Sri Satya Saibaba believed that education is for life and living; and the end of education is character

Swami Chinmayananda stressed upon nationalistic feelings and vedantic study

All these primary influencers of modern education in India have strived in their own way to revitalise the ancient system of education that was prevalent in the country before the introduction of Macaulay’s system. They all had one common objective of integrating the ancient education values and system with modern needs to build a strong, moral and self-confident nation based on the principles of non-violence and self-reliance.

Self-Reliance is the key which helps one to achieve life’s four primary goals – Happiness, Security, Pleasure and Harmony. Self reliance can be attained by integrating the internal (Physical, Vital, Mental and Intellectual) faculties first and then extending it to the world around. Spiritual outlook helps realise ourselves as an integral part in the world and develop the feeling of oneness, which in turn acts as an important tool to build a harmonious relationship in the Society and build a successful Career.

Thus we may classify the following as the faculties in which skills have to be nurtured and evolved from childhood at two different levels:

Individual: Physical, Vital, Mental, Intellectual and Spiritual

Inter-personal: Social, Finance and Career

Physical: The physical body should be healthy and strong, agile, graceful and fit enough to carry out all the tasks in life. This should be the overall ideal for physical education. IOER (Input-Output-Exercise-Rest) is the key principle in developing physical faculty

Vital: The vital element refers to the life-energy which is primarily enhanced and controlled through breathing and breath related practices. This domain is crucial as it helps in effectively managing the physical, mental and intellectual domains acting as a link between the gross and subtle body.

Mental and Emotional: The mental domain comprises of the four aspects – chitta (memory), manas (mind), buddhi (gross intellect) and ahankara (self-image). Development of concentration, awareness and management of thoughts & emotions is the aim in developing mental domain. This domain effectively enhances the following life-skills identified by UN – Coping with stress, Coping with emotions.

Intellect: By developed intellect, we refer to one’s discriminating capacity / intelligence. Such a person is intelligent, who is able to look at people, things and situations dispassionately, have the right perspective and take balanced decisions in handling the day-to-day challenges of life. This domain addresses the life-skills – creative thinking, critical thinking, decision-making and problem solving as mentioned by UN.

Awareness of one’s strengths and weaknesses in the above four domains – physical, vital, mental and intellectual encompasses the self-awareness, a life-skill described by UN. It is with self-awareness one can develop self-reliance and have harmonious interaction with the world.

Spiritual: Spiritual education acts as an effective bridge for individuals to have complete awareness of oneself vis-à-vis, the relationship with the environment – other living and non-living beings. A spiritually conscious person is aware of close interaction, relationship and oneness with the world. This outlook acts as a bridge to build harmonious relationships in the society making one socially responsible. This leads us to the sixth domain in life-skill development – the social domain.

Social: In a social perspective, an individual should develop the three social life-skills mentioned by UN – effective communication, empathy and interpersonal relationship.

Apart from these three basic skills, a socially responsible citizen should also have right knowledge about one’s country. One should be a proud citizen and play a positive role in nation building. In this process one need to remember the responsibility towards the family, the basic unit of the nation.

One should also be responsible towards the environment – the five elements (air, water, earth, fire and space) which forms the basis of our life and animals without whom the ecological balance is not complete.

A clear understanding and the role of the nation vis-à-vis global community is essential to be a socially responsible citizen

Finance and Career: A person with self-awareness, spiritual outlook and social responsibility can be happy in the 21st century capital driven global economy if only one has the necessary skills to handle the capital, meaning the finance; and the skills to carefully navigate the career in the fast changing world. Finance and career planning forms the seventh element of life-skill education.  Irrespective of the career path, one needs to have a proper understanding of finance, money and wealth. One need to give them the right place and be in a place to manage and control them than become a puppet in its hands.

To Conclude…

A Happy and successful individual of 21st century is one, who pursues the four primary goals – security (wealth), rightful pleasures, a harmonious and happy life.

The Essential Life-skills which help in this process are those that make one physically fit, vitally active, mentally strong, intellectually sharp, socially aware, spiritually conscious and financial & career-wise.

We shall discuss each domain and skills to develop the same in detail in future posts.

The Vital Link – Pranic energy

The electronic device (Computer, laptop, tablet, mobile phone, etc.,) through which you are reading this post is a gross physical instrument perceivable by your senses.

This post and trillions of other data that is stored in it is in a very subtle form and not perceivable by your senses unless the device is functional.

electronic-devices-vectors

The vital link that connects these two making the device functional is the electric power/charge. You will be able to make use of this device as long as it is charged. The moment the battery is discharged, it becomes useless. The electric charge is the life force making it functional.

We charge the device and make use of it as long as there is a need for it. Once we see the need for the device is fulfilled we let go of the device. This need is the cause motivating us to keep it in a functional condition.

Similar are the gross, subtle and causal bodies we have as described by the yogic science.

The gross body is the physical body (annamaya kosha) perceivable by the senses.

The subtle body comprises of the mind and intellect (manomaya kosha and vijnanamaya kosha) which functions through the physical body but not perceivable in its absence.

The vital link is the life-force or prana (pranamaya kosha) powered by the breath. Devoid of this life force the physical body becomes useless and the subtle body leaves it in search of a new one based on the composition of the causal body comprised of past memories and impressions – vasanas.

It is the past unfulfilled memories and impressions that direct our life and hence they are described as the causal body. Modern psychological science and hypnotherapy also recognise this. Brian Weiss in his book Many Masters Many Lives describes how he helped several of his patients develop a proper perspective about life by making them aware of past memories and impressions from previous births.

Let us get back to the vital link – the prana which keeps us alive and mobile. There are set rules to charge your device for its optimal functioning. Similarly we need to charge our body with the pranic force in a proper and regular way to make optimal use of this physical body.

How Vital is this Vital Link?

All the energy healing techniques like pranic healing, reiki, accupressure, accupuncture, etc., are aimed for optimising the flow of pranic energy in our body. The most comprehensive and ancient method for management of pranic energy is described in Patanjali’s ashtanga yoga. While all the limbs of ashtanga yoga help in managing prana, pranayama section deals with this in more detail.

While breathing happens involuntarily, we can also manage it voluntarily. The other life-systems like circulatory system, nervous system, digestive system, endocrine system are involuntary and cannot be controlled by us directly. However, by voluntarily managing the breath we can to an extent control all the above life processes. This is another reason it is vital.

The vital energy also helps in managing our thoughts, emotions and function at higher levels of intellect. Research has proven this and it is common sense today that one can manage anger by deep breathing.

It is also widely understood that the pranic energy flows through subtle channels in the body called nadis and these correspond to the nerve centres in the physical body. The pranic centres or chakras in the pranic body are also the psychic centres connecting to the mental and intellectual sheaths.

English: A description of the major chakras an...

A description of the major chakras and minor chakras in the body. Chakras are energy centers of the subtle body which absorb, digest and distribute prana to the different parts of the body to ensure the proper functioning of the whole physical body and its organs. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

To summarise, the features that make Pranic body a vital link:

  1. It links the gross and subtle bodies making us alive
  2. Through the chakras / pranic centres it acts like a perfect bridge ensuring smooth flow of traffic between the gross and subtle bodies
  3. Being voluntarily manageable, the pranic force is the most easily manageable part through which we can try to keep up a state of homeostasis in the physical body and attain a state of equanimity in the mental, emotional and intellectual domains. Thus it is the ideal balancing tool in our hands.

Various tools and techniques available to hone this essential life-skill shall be shared in future posts. However, it is important to note that this is a skill that cannot be learnt on-line or by reading books. It has to be learnt in a systematic way directly from an expert. The information shared on-line or in books are only for reference to quench our intellectual thirst.

Ankur Children Yoga Festival 2013 – Zonal Event 1 – Messages

 

Zonal 1 Event of Ankur CYF 2013 Inaugurated by Shri Somanathan JI

The Secret Behind Hanuman’s Strength

Ankur: Hi Rishi!

Rishi: Hi Ankur. How are things going on?

Ankur: Great!

Rishi: What’s the plan for the day?

Ankur: Need to help a friend with his school project.

Rishi: That’s Good. What’s the project about?

Ankur: Making models on the theme “Secret behind Hanuman’s strength”

Rishi: Whaw! So, How are you planning to help him?

Ankur: Learn the story from you and help him with ideas to make the model.

Rishi: Ha!!! Is this an order or a request?

Ankur: You are my Best Friend Rishi and you know I need not request friends for help. My friends are always ready to help me.

Rishi (Smiles): OK Friend. Here you go… You know that Rama helped Sugriva regain his kingdom by defeating Vali.

Vali Sugriva War

Vali Sugriva War

After that Sugriva gets himself completely immersed in joy and starts enjoying the pleasures in his regained kingdom. Rama waits for a while expecting Sugriva to keep up his promise. But Sugriva does not turn up.

Ankur: Oh! It is so bad for someone to forget the promise made to a friend in need. Sugriva, is a nice guy. Why did he do so?

Friendship Vows

Friendship Vows

Rishi: You are right. Sugriva is a nice guy. But when one gets distracted too much from his duty and start enjoying beyond limits, he will tend to forget his promises.

So, Rama had to send a message to Sugriva about his promise. Since, Sugriva was alert to the message, he immediately seeks Rama’s pardon and gets on the job.

He made detailed plans to send out vanaras in search of Sita. He divided his best lieutenants into four groups and sends them in four directions to start the search for Sita. The best of the teams comprising Angada, Jambavan and Hanuman along with some other vanaras headed south.

Ankur: Is there any reason, why the best team was sent towards south?

Rishi: There is. Hanuman had observed Ravana carrying Sita towards south in his plane.

Ankur: What do you mean? Did aeroplanes exist in those days?

Rishi: Yes! Vedas describe about air flying vehicles. There are two other instances in Ramayana mentioning about aeroplanes.

Ankur: Whaw! Ancient Indians were really genius.

Rishi: You are right. But, remember modern Indians also are. You will realise this when we complete this story.

Ankur: Just a minute! I have another doubt. How did Hanuman know about the topography of the land? Don’t tell me they had detailed maps either.

Rishi: You are right. They did have complete information about Indian topography. Ramayana gives a detailed description of the same in Kishkinda Kanda. Sugriva, while sending teams in different directions, clearly defines the boundaries within which each team had to conduct the search.

Ankur: Oh! How did these two intelligent monkeys learn about all these facts?

Rishi: When Sugriva and Hanuman were fleeing in search of a safe place to hide from Vali, they had to literally run in all directions. During this period they got a clear understanding of the entire topography.

Ankur (Thinking deeply): Hmm….. I understand. Ok, what happened next.

Rishi: The team continued their search all over the south till they reached the mighty Indian Ocean. Their they run into Sampati, brother of Jatayu – who was killed in his fight with Ravana while trying to rescue Sita. Sampati gives information about Sita being present in Lanka. However the challenge is to cross the ocean to reach Sita.

Ankur: A good news and a bad news.

Rishi: You are right. They got whereabouts of Sita and that is a good news. How will they cross the mighty Indian ocean and reach Sita? This is the bad news. This is how life gives opportunities to us. Adversity and opportunity always go hand in hand. It is only the wise who will be able to discern one from the other and make use of the opportunity. The vanara team was a wise one and they get into discussion…

Angada says, “I am still small and cannot cross this distance”. Hanuman wasn’t sure of his capability and sat quietly. This is when Jambavan reveals to Hanuman secret about his strength.

As a young monkey, Hanuman could easily fly, even to reach out to the Sun. Remember he is the son of Vayu (Lord of Wind) History says that Hanuman learnt all the Vedas directly from Sun God. He was well learned and powerful even as a child.

BabyHanuman

Baby Hanuman

But he was also very naughty and proud of his strength. To put a stop to his mischievous behaviour, he was cursed to forget all his strengths. But, there was a reprieve. He could realise his strength again when others remind him of that and praises him. Jambavan, knew this and reveals Hanuman’s strengths and capabilities.

Jambavan Reveals the Secret

Jambavan Reveals the Secret

Thus realising his strengths, he sets out to cross the ocean single-handed, overcomes all the obstacles and later plays a key role in the war with Ravana. At many crucial points during the war Hanuman helps Rama and His army to win Ravana.

Mighty Hanuman

Ankur: Oh! So Hanuman is very powerful. Then, why is he seen always kneeling down in front of Rama, Sita and Lakshmana?

Humble Hanuman

Humble Hanuman

Rishi: That is the sign of Humility. Wisdom is a strength only when it comes with humility. Remember Hanuman was cursed to forget his strengths when he was proud and arrogant. You need to be humble, helpful and always obedient to the Supreme Lord.

This is the real secret behind new-found Hanuman’s strength and the reason he is prayed by many with deep reverence.

Chanting Hanuman Chalisa is all about invoking the dormant Hanuman within us. We also can realise our strengths and achieve great things in life, if we awake the Hanuman within.

Clear the Nose Block

Are you suffering from cold?

Is your nose blocked?

Are you unable to sleep?

A simple technique to clear your nasal passage of phlegm, make your day better and have good sleep in the night.

The Technique:

Observe the nostril in which the block is intense. Lie on your bed turned to a side, with the blocked nostril on the top. For example – if your left nostril is blocked, lie on the bed turned to your right side. This way your left nostril is on the top.

Observe the flow of your breath for a while. The left nostril will gradually open up and you may observe the phlegm moving from left nostril to the right. At this juncture lie flat on the bed facing the ceiling. the phlegm (even during severe blocks) will move down through the internal passage into your mouth. Note: If you lie for longer duration, the right nostril will get blocked.

LieOnASide

You may now spit the phlegm, wash your mouth and lie down flat on the bed facing the ceiling. If the block is severe, you may have to repeat the process several times till the nasal passage is clear enough allowing you to sleep in the night or work during the day.

Lie Flat

Advantages over blowing the nose hard: Blowing your nose hard to get rid of the phlegm will only intensify the suffering leading to head-ache; strain in the lungs and ears; loss of sleep in the night / poor attention on the work during the day.

This technique is useful even to clear simple blocks in the nose and balance the breath flow in both the nostrils on normal days. Balance flow of breath will help in balanced functioning of both sides of the brain making it more efficient.

Have a Great Day!

WISH YOU HAPPY BREATHING

Ankur CYF 2013 – Zonal Festival 1

The first zonal festival of Children Yoga Festival 2013 was successfully conducted on 9th Nov 2013 at DAV (Boys) Higher Secondary School, Mogappair. Special Thanks to the management of DAV Group of Schools for their support.

The festival was inaugurated by Mr Somanathan, Treasurer – Vivekananda Educational Society. His inaugural address was inspiring and encouraging to all the children. Mr Ramamurthy, Mr Srinivasan and Mr Jegathala Pratapan from VES graced the occasion.

Yoga Skill Demonstrations by all the participating schools in this level was quite impressive and far ahead in all respects when compared to respective performances at the School Level. Congrats! to all the children for the spectacular performance. Kudos to all the yoga teachers who have trained them.

The quiz program – part of Yoga Skill Demonstration, conducted by Mrs. Veda, Mrs. Padma and Mrs. Uma Jeyagopal was quite interesting and introduced children to some interesting facts about Bihar School of Yoga and its 50-year-old tradition. The visual and demonstration rounds made the program lively.

This was followed by Oratorical Skill Demonstration on various topics related to Yoga. The insights and confidence with which children demonstrated their oratory skills was highly commendable.

The festival also included an exposure to Satyananda Yoga style Kirtan singing by Sn. Shiva Rishi Ji – Founder Satyananda Yoga Education Charitable Trust. All the children and teachers thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Glad to share that one six-year child from the audience was so impressed by the experience, he chose to sing the same kirtan for a music program in his school.

Selected teams of Yoga Skill Demonstration and students from Oratorical Skill Demonstration shall be taken to a completely paid trip to Bihar School of Yoga, Munger. This trip will provide them an opportunity to demonstrate their skills in front of international experts. They will also undergo training from these experts, which will go a long way helping them to emerge as ambassadors of Yoga. These children will also be joined by students from other zonal festivals to be held shortly.

Schools interested to take part in the same may contact us at ankur@blissgroup.com or syctchennai@gmail.com
