Indians are loosing their identification with ancient invention, arts, spiritual, scientific enlightened essences, perfect pure knowledge.
India, Indian have contributed and are still continuously contributing to world’s entire knowledge of 64 major ARTS & SCIENCES.
Since time immemorial Indian Siddhar’s particularly from Tamil Nadu South India have continuously worked, created and invented world’s most wonderful, ever available, guarantee solution for wordily life as well inner self detachment experience(s).
Examples are in the area of numeric, architectural, geological, medical, energy level sciences, mind, body soul stages, about astrology, numerology, atoms, molecule, particles, karma, all level of conscious mind, physics, metaphysics, biological, chemical, atmosphere, darkness, light, planets, solar system, galaxy as known and unknown universe existence secrets. The list can go……..
There are many ancient as well pure modern Gurus / Siddhar. The earliest of them are Saptarishi (Seven Rishi), 18 Siddhars (Highest Intellectually Evolvement in human form). The seven Rishis are Vasiha, Bharadvja, Jamadagni, Gautama, Atri, Vivmitra, and Agastya. The great 18 Siddhrs are Agastiyar, Nandi Devar, Thirumoolar, Bhogar, Konkanavar, Macchamuni, Goraknath (Gorakkar), Sattaimuni, Sundaranandar, Ramadevar (Yacop), Kudambai, Karuvoorar, Idaikadar,Kamalamuni, Valmiki, Pathanjali, Dhanvanthiri And Paambatti. Each of them are said to have lived between 128 years and almost 4000 years and some up to few Yugas*. Other great souls include Vallalar [Swami Ramalingam], Thiruvalluvar, Thirumullavar, Avvayaar.
There are reasons why all of those gurus, yogis, spiritual masters, medical health contributors, emotional health advisers have standard official Indian, Hinduism foundation, appearance, system and ethics. There are steps to be adhered to every time by disciples, students, gurus upon starting to learn and practicing those techniques for self as well others.
As Indians were a compassionate community, they allowed others to affect the original essences due to dis-identifying origin of the ART, sometimes not revealing the founder guru/siddhar’s name. Some even go to the extent of saying that those techniques are universal, non-religious, non-Hindu, it i scientific and can be practiced by anyone.
From the compassionate point of view this is correct. But from the identification point of view, such behavior loses its original value. The inventor’s or founder’s name is forgotten and sooner or later other communities, races and religious groups start to claim those techniques as their own. It’s a great sin then because the Indians are denying the heritage for the future generation of Indians!
Let’s talk about a specific Indian Art called Yoga Sutra! Even though it is recorded as 5000 years old and written by Maharishi Patanjali Yogi, the original essence was created Yugas ago by the Siddhars.
Anyway, what’s wrong when a individual who learns yoga or meditation wishes to thank or greet those great souls who created them? In general, the principle of learning involves greeting and respecting the original teacher(s), inventor(s) of those knowledge or techniques. If we talk about any invention such as the electric light, the telephone, we remember the inventors Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell respectively.
If the user of the electric light and telephone is not of the same religion or race as the inventors, does it matter? They are not required to convert to religion and race of the inventors to use the light & telephone.
Yet, there could be a perception that one has to convert to use the thousands of products/techniques/medicine created by the ancient inventors/Siddhars/Gurus/Yogi/Energy Scientists?
I’m wondering why we should forget to acknowledge those Ancient Indian men/women of wisdom? Why would a modern practitioner/student/disciple from whatever background regardless of colour, caste, creed, culture, race, religion, language, and geographical location who want to learn the Indian Ancient Arts like Yoga not respect the ORIGINAL Gurus?
Why do those people from non-Indian background always want re-package, re-brand and re-name those ARTS to avoid accepting the origin of those Essences?
I want each individual to know from where they come to this world? Surely via 2 humans (1 mother and 1 father) .Now let’s challenge yourselves for the purpose of argument and say we ignore both parents and claim that our existence from some other medium (from rocks, earth, machine etc). Will that be sensible?
Hence the same argument holds here. I say by avoiding and hiding the origins of the Indian arts, scientific and spiritual essences, inventions and pure knowledge, you’re technically suppressing the wholeness and the complete benefits of any of the arts. You’re in fact lying to yourself!
My kind request is this: just as you respect your own parents who become the medium to provide the biological body, I invite the human race to respect those such pure souls who in ancient times created those remarkable essences in the various faculties.
The ancient Indians created the arts for all but enough of letting go of the Identity of the original arts, essences of our Siddhars. To do means letting go of our Indian dignity, identity and not fulfilling the pure unconditional love and compassion for others!
Dear compassionate intellects of the world, be truly compassionate by giving the truth by identifying the arts you practice, the essences you teach, the techniques you use to do therapy regardless of where they are from.
Anyone out there claiming copyright patents of those ancient knowledge like yoga postures, what are you trying to prove?
I challenge any of patent owner to come forward and tell that other Yoga users should not use it!
This is my compassionate comment for those who are involved in modifying Yoga and Practicing modern yoga by many names like hot yoga, water yoga and whats-so-ever yoga . It is an EXPLOITATION and deviates the ENTIRE Yoga Process and Benefits to become a disaster for the MIND, BODY & SOUL.
“The traditional definition of Asanas is very specific and does not particularly relate to physical exercise: According to Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra: ‘Sthiram, Sukham, Asanam’ which means ‘Asana is a body position and a state of being through which one can remain steady, calm and comfortable’” The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali Book One Verse 33
BY THIS SIMPLE YET POWERFUL STATEMENT BE AWARE NON-OF THE MODIFIED YOGA WILL GIVE THE ANCIENT PURE REALISTIC ADVANTAGE AS PER THE ORIGINAL AUTHENTIC YOGA PRACTICE.
If we learn and practice the modified yoga by whatever name or style, it is like watching a Circus group marching while entering the town. It is not even a stage show or demo and off course its not at all the complete original circus show!
When you modify yoga then it becomes exercise and can give a total opposite reaction in biological as well as psychological processes compared to original yoga practice.
|ORIGINAL YOGA ASANA||MODIFIED YOGA EXERCISE|
|Oxygen consumption is reduced||It is increased|
|Respiration rate falls||It is increased|
|Body temperature drops||Tends to increase or in-stable|
|Muscles received minimum nutrition and organ received more||Its reverse and body become flabby|
|Help harmonize the endocrine secretions, balancing emotions.||None|
|Stimulate parasympathetic nerves||Stimulate sympathetic nerves|
|Encourage co-ordination between body system and mind||Tends to build up toxin in body|
|Develop inner awareness||Does not necessarily do so|
It’s for universal use but by ethic is identify the inventor the ancient scientist (Siddhars/Yogis/Gurus/Maharishi/etc), respect the inventor, greeting a wish of thank you to the inventor the souls the Siddhars & Yogis!
You will be blessing much multitude in higher quantum degree by the nature!
