Significance of offering water to Sun

DSC_8077Significance of offering water to Sun

Our ancient Hindu literature says offering water to Sun God can have miraculous effect on you.

  • When the spectrum of sun rays refract through the water, it breaks down into seven colours.The energy emanating from these rays of different colours is absorbed by the body, and balances any dosha in the body.
  • The sun-rays refracting through the water of libation are a vital source of vigour and beauty.The green, violet colors refracted from VIGBYOR of the Sun are considered rich sources of anti-bacterial energy.
  • This process helps us miraculously in the intellectual upliftment of the individual and it also reflects enhancement of his acumen in decision making, in eye-sight, digestion, luster as well as splendor.
  • Human body is made up of five things, air (vayu), water (jal), earth (prithvi), fire (energy) and space (aakash) and the cure of all the ailments of the body is amongst these five things only and the rays of the rising sun are one of these things.
  • Many diseases can be cured by the use of sun rays e.g. ailments of the heart, eyes, jaundice, leprosy and weak mind.

What is Yoga Therapy? by Yoganandham

DSC_0508 nDSC_0522 n

An Introduction to Yoga Therapy

Yoga therapy utilizes poses, breathing techniques, and meditation to benefit and improve overall health.

While any type of yoga can bring health benefits, yoga therapy involves employing a variety of yoga practices to try to improve a health condition or to ease a natural process, such as pregnancy or menopause. Among the yogic tools used therapeutically are asana (the physical postures), Pranayama (breathing exercises), meditation, and guided imagery. Although many people don’t realize it, yogis also consider diet an integral part of yoga and therefore of yoga therapy.

Why Yoga?

Therapeutic yoga is an inherently holistic approach, simultaneously working on the body, mind, and spirit. Various yoga practices systematically strengthen different systems in the body, including the heart and cardiovascular system, the lungs, muscles, and the nervous system. Yoga practices can improve function of the digestive system, foster psychological well-being, and improve oxygen delivery to tissues. Yoga also can help the body more efficiently remove waste products, carcinogens, and cellular toxins.

Most people in the West live stressful lives, and yoga—and by extension yoga therapy—is perhaps the best overall stress reduction system ever invented. Stress has been linked to a wide variety of medical problems, from migraine headaches and irritable bowel syndrome to potentially life-threatening conditions such as diabetes, osteoporosis, and heart disease. Since persistently high levels of stress hormones, particularly cortisol, can undermine function of the immune system, here too yoga can help.

While yoga by itself can alleviate a number of problems, it is particularly effective as a complement to other forms of health care, both alternative and conventional. Studies suggest, for example, that yoga therapy can lessen the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatments for people with cancer and facilitate faster recovery after bypass surgery. In clinical trials, many patients with asthma, type II diabetes (formerly known as adult-onset diabetes), or high blood pressure who began a regular practice of yoga were able to either lower their drug dosage, or eliminate some pills entirely. Less medication means fewer side effects, and, sometimes, very substantial cost savings.

Yoga Is a Slow Medicine

While yoga is strong medicine, in general it is slow medicine. The key to successful yoga therapy is an incremental approach, which tends to be safer and more effective than more aggressive strategies. It is best to begin yoga [therapy] as medicine slowly and ramp up the intensity and duration of practice only as circumstances allow. For some students, particularly those with serious medical problems, therapeutic yoga might begin with only a posture or two, or a single breathing exercise, until the student is ready for more.

In any yoga therapy session, ideally you only want to teach a student as much as they are going to be able to practice at home. Better to teach a few things well than to have them try to do more with less precision. An exception to this rule would be when you teach a specific series of practices in one session in order to teach the student to relieve a current symptom, with only a small portion of the total practice assigned as homework. More experienced students, of course, may be able to handle much more.

Yoga and Mediatation at Sunrise

Why it is good to practice Yoga at time of Sunrise?

Expert yogis believe that you only have two options for what is considered the most ideal time of day to do yoga: during sunrise or sunset. First off, performing yoga during sunset or in the evening works best if you want to recuperate from a stress-filled day. It will enable you to revive your energy and bring more vitality back into your body. This is also highly recommended for those who are suffering from chronic insomnia due to excessive amount of stress.

On the other hand, there are also yogis who believe that doing yoga in the morning offers more benefits, especially with exposure to sunrise. You can do this for at least 30 minutes, so you might want to get out of bed earlier than your usual morning routine. Starting your day early and filled with energy will provide you with enough strength (of mind and body) to get through the day

Yoganandham wishes You a Very Happy Diwali

Yoganandham wishes you a Happy Diwali to all of you. May god bless you with all the happiness and prosperity.
 
Why Diwali is Celebrated?
 
Diwali is called the Festival of Lights and is celebrated to honor Rama-chandra, the seventh avatar (incarnation of the god Vishnu). It is believed that on this day Rama returned to his people after 14 years of exile during which he fought and won a battle against the demons and the demon king, Ravana. People lit their houses to celebrate his victory over evil (light over darkness). The goddess of happiness and good fortune, Lakshmi, also figures into the celebration. It is believed that she roams the Earth on this day and enters the house that is pure, clean, and bright.
Diwali celebrations may vary in different communities but its significance and spiritual meaning is generally “the awareness of the inner light”. It is also the beginning of the new financial year for the business community.
