Know the real objective of Yoga besides the Wellbeing and Physical fitness aspects

The real objective of Yoga has been shrouded in false beliefs in the recent decades due to the ever increasing marketing propaganda about the physical fitness aspects and aerobics. Many Yoga centers in many countries including India have found Yoga as a good business tool and there has been an increasing focus about the Yoga, its advantages to the physical fitness and flexibility are being overwhelmingly discussed. All that can be considered as just one of the many dimensions of Yoga called ‘Hatha Yoga’ and it is not complete Yoga in itself.

Though almost every one is quite familiar with the name ‘YOGA’, there may perhaps be only a few who understand it in its true spirit. Some think about it to be a mysterious science leading to certain supernatural powers known as Siddhis.

Tips for buying a Desktop/Laptop computer, criteria to choose among Tabs, Smartphones and PCs

What do I need to buy, a desktop? Or a laptop computer? Or is it good to buy a tablet instead? What about a Smartphone instead of all these? And then is it good to buy a Tablet with 3G and WiFi?

If you get all these questions in your mind, well, the answer is very simple. You are the only person who can decide what the best for you is.

It all depends on your needs first. Then it depends on your budget. And then it comes down to the understanding of the technical advantages and limitations associated with each type of device.

If you are the one who thinks or is actually trying to figure out if Smartphone and Tablets can replace the computer, you are mistaken. Honestly there is a greater craze and buzz in the market today about these devices rather than the real needs.

In a simple order of wishlist, we can say that the order of preference shall be 1. Desktop/Laptop computer, 2. Smartphone, 3. Tablets.

YearBook - Personal productivity tool from LifeTools series by ViprasCraft

ViprasCraft's YearBook (LifeTools series) can be best utilized following these simple guidelines:

Making your book first:
Based on your convenience you can either choose A4 or A5 paper optimized format of YearBook.

A4 format: If you have opted for the A4 paper size format, it is just sufficient to print this free PDF file in this way:
  1. First print all the pages in the PDF file back to back (front & rear) printing on A4 sheets. You will get 5 A5 sheets with 10 pages printed on them back to back.
  2. First sheet with pages 1 & 2 serves as a Cover page as well as a guide with instructions for better use.
  3. Second sheet with pages 3 &4 serves as the section 'Roles, Goals and Habits'. You can take as many photocopies of this page as you want. But if you ask us how many pages would be ideal, we recommend 2 sheets (with 4 sides) as ideal. Considering 30 goals per page (15 x 2 columns) we make 60 per sheet which means a total of 120 goals. That means in a year you have 1 goal every 3 days on an average and this is itself too much. We can't really achieve short term or long term goals bigger than that number in a single year because if we have goals exceeding 4 pages, maybe then they aren't goals, but are more 'things to do' list.
