MOHA(DELUSION)

Moha(Delusion) is a  state of mind which does not permit scope for discrimination. It is ignorant of the true facts and is the origin of egoism. It is one of the six bad vices and prevents one from knowing the truth and makes one to addict to the gratification of sensual pleasures and make us to run after the material enjoyment. This  can cause any misery in one's life and  binds the soul to the process of birth and death.  The main obstacle for one's spiritual heritage causing him to loose knowledge of his true being is Moha(Delusion). This internal enemy drags  the human from all the sides away from the soul and makes the life miserable. Lord Srikrishna, in Bhagavath Githa in Chapter.16 verse 16,  cautious us about the effect of Moha ( Delusion).  " Aneka - chitta - vibhrantah  moha-jala  samavritah prasanth kama - bhogeshu  patani matale shuchau" . Possessed and led astray by such imaginings enveloped in Moha( Delusion),

LOBHA(GREED)

LOBHA(Greed ) is one of  the six bad vices viz., Kama( desire/passion), Krodha(anger), Lobha ( greed), Moha(bondage), Mada( ego), and Mascharya( jealous).  It literally means greed.  It is the excessive desire, especially the desire to appropriate to oneself what belongs to others that too against the principles of Dharma. It is an endless sickness.  It is the condition of the mind in which one is not satisfied even after possessing what one wants.  Some times it  tempts people to do unethical, illegal and immoral things in the pursuit of  earning more money.  Absence of contentment even after having acquired the object of desire means the individual is greedy. Here is a story, how a greedy person without contentment in life transformed into a great Donar and Devotee by the grace of God. Purandara Dasa was born in a Madhwa Brahmin Community in a village near Kshemapura,  near Thirthahalli in Karnataka State.  His parents named him Srinivasa Nayaka. As he born

KRODHA(ANGER)

Krodha(Anger) m eans a  strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure or hostility.   Fear and sadness are primary emotions before one gets Anger. It is a  strong emotion we experience when we think someone has done wrong. Anger(Krodh) is an excessive mental turmoil on account of the obstacles in the gratification of some desire.   It is an unpleasant emotion that does more harm to the giver than to the receiver. It is one of the  six bad  vices viz., Kama(desire/passion), Krodha(Anger ), Lobha(greed), Moha(bondage), Mada(ego) and Mastsarya(jealousy).  Man acquires  Kama and Krodha by birth. These are inborn qualities and  cannot be wiped off completely because they are necessary for every human being to eke out his livelihood,  but can be controlled to a  possible extent,  while leading a pious life. In Bhagavath  Githa Lord Sri Krishna described about  Anger in Chap. 2 verse 63:- Krodhad bhavati sammohah - sammohat smrti  vibhramaha                                    smrti  bhr

WHY HINDUS WEAR TILAK(BINDI) ON THE FOREHEAD?

Hinduism is not a religion.  It is Hindu Dharma, a  way of life.   Hindu dharma has many specialties.  It is known as Sanathana Dharma.  Sanathana means always existing,  eternal,  which cannot be destroyed by any thing and ever lasting. Dharma means, the way of life with all aachaaras or customs and rituals.   In each and every aachaara there will be a hidden scientific reason.  All  acharaas are  followed for the mental and physical health;  long life;  prosperity and wealth; for strong family and social bondage.  Following the aacharaas as per our Dharma, give a fine personality, dharmic outlook and vision. In India everyone follows aachaaras for the above mentioned psychological, physiological family relation, and  social benefit viz.,  though we follow  different religions  we belong to one Country.  It is everyone's  right and duty to understand scientifically  and logically the meaning of each and every aachaara and follow the same in  our life systematically. It is a

HONESTY

HONESTY  means to be fair and straight forward in conduct or strict  adherence to the facts. It further  means to be truthful  in all  aspects  of life.  It involves  not to tell lies, never hurt anyone through bad habits, activities or behavior. Honesty makes a person free of all troubles and to be fearless. Being honest helps a person to get trust  of all in the surrounding, a lot of happiness, blessings from Supreme Power, and  many more things. Honest person never gets involved in the activities that are morally wrong. Being honest is really very beneficial in the real life.  It is not a thing which one can buy or sell; it is a good habit which can be obtained through practice only.    Honesty leads a person towards an auspicious path which gives real happiness and joy.  A person can be honest only when he/she follows honesty in various aspects of life,  such as honest in speaking, honest in work place, honest in doing justice, honest in behavior,

ANULOMA - VILOMA PRANAYAMA

Pranayama (Prāṇāyāma) is a combination of two Sanskrit words 'Prana' which means life force, vital energy or breath, and 'Ayama' which means to extend. This forms a part of various yogic practices devised in ancient India. Now a days almost everybody from school going children to college students and  private and public employees, business people etc., leads mechanical life in towns and cities. They find no time to concentrate on their health. Even they have no time to verify whether their food proportionately contains sufficient quantities of carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals, etc., required daily for their health. If such is the case where is the time for them to look after for their physical and mental fitness? With a view to give some tip to our readers, ViprasCraft is suggesting the following simple alternate breathing exercise in comfortable pose, also known as Anuloma-Viloma Sukha Pranayama (Comfortable alternate breathing exercise).

PEACEFUL AND HAPPY LIFE

Peace of mind is a mental state of calmness or tranquility, and  freedom from worry and anxiety.  The desire of every human being and the goal of every prayer is peace of mind. It   is a beautiful gift, which only we can give to ourselves just by expecting nothing from any one. There is no real  wealth in this world than peace of mind.    Happy life is all about the art of balancing our relationship with all the  family members,  relatives and friends. It  can only be found if we  can free ourselves  of all other distractions. For every minute of being  angry we  lose the same amount of  happiness in our life.  It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, kindness and gratitude. It will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have. We won't get real happiness  from what we get, but it comes  from what we give to others and other living beings.  Feeling some positive emotions every day has a big effect on our happiness and well being

FRIENDSHIP

Friendship is a relationship of mutual affection and love  between people. In other words it is  familiar and liking of each others mind. It is not something we  learn in school.   Man cannot live all alone. He is a social being. He needs someone to share his joys and sorrows.   The strength of the bond of friendship between two people can vary. If the bond is very strong i.e., being kind, generous, loyal,  honest etc., between the friends, they are called BEST FRIENDS . With these qualities one can enjoy the bliss of friendship. Friends are important to have because they support us when things get tough in life and are always there to love and help.   Friends will come and go in our lives.  A good friend is trustworthy to tell us  the truth, even when it is hard for us to hear, makes us  smile, and is there to listen and comforts when we cry. Having good friends who stood  first in difficult situations is really important.  A good  friend is one who admires a person's skil

Substance of Bhagavadgita in brief

Image
The experience of happiness and distress in life  are like appearance and disappearance of winter and summer seasons,  tolerate them without being disturbed. For the soul there is neither birth nor death or it cannot be destroyed. It is everlasting and imperishable. He who dwells in the body is eternal and can never be killed.  Why you cry that you may lose something.? What did you bring with you, which you think you are losing now? What did you create your own,  which you think now that it is being destroyed?  You came with empty hands, you will leave with  empty hands only.  Whatever is going to happen will definitely happen.  It is God's will. Don't  worry about it unnecessarily Be like a sage, who is not disturbed in spite of miseries nor delighted  when there is happiness, free from attachment, fear and anger. Be free from desires, devoid of false ego and then alone you attain Real Happiness. Do your prescribed duty for the sake of God and free from bondages . You s

IMPORTANCE OF YOGA AND MEDITATION

The food we take is to be digested and the  undigested food if any shall come out as excreta from our body after 24 hours, otherwise we fell sick. The excess water we drink  shall come out within 4 hours, otherwise we fell sick. The air we breath in shall come out within one minute, otherwise we fell sick. As such, Anger, Hatred, Jealous etc., are within us years together. What will happen if they dwell in our body like that?  We become sick permanently. That is why our great saints say that we the fools feel that we are living daily....in fact we are dying to some extent day by day. If our age increases  what we presume....  is  our life span increases or decreases? We have to necessarily accept the bitter fact that we are dying daily to some  more extent from these negative energies. Anger, stress,hatred,laziness, etc, which are within us and not leaving us are making our lives deadly. The only way to give Prana Sakthi( Vital energy) to our body is Yoga and Meditation.Yoga bui

Just ONE Homescreen on Smartphone

Image
In this smartphone age and virtual world of smartphone apps, is it worth keeping tens of screens to scroll through? As a change you can try using just one smartphone screen for all your apps. Look at the screenshot on my Poco F1 smartphone. This comes from my earlier experience of using Windows Phones where the tiles concept was making it possible to use folders so creatively without missing a notification. If possible on Windows 10, why is it not possible on Android? Now that Android has matured enough and is a robust OS, Smartphones look definitely better and do have many productivity features built-in. However, that does not prevent you to have your own say about how exactly you want your smartphone. You can just have one smartphone screen for all most used apps and you can use, if needed, further more screens for effectively utilising widgets. Do let us know if you have any comments or suggestions below.

HUMANITY

                                                   The word humanity is derived from Latin humanitas for " human nature and  kindness". Humanity  refer to the kind feelings humans often have for each other. The  values which are considered basically essential in humans include Sympathy, compassion, mercy, brotherly love,  kindness, understanding, tolerance, gentleness,  pity, charity, generosity, magnanimity etc., Human values are guide lines  that help us  to generate good thoughts in us so that we can do good deeds,  to  think about good towards  others not only humans but also other living beings such as animals, birds, etc.,  They  also help in our  actions we play day to day  in our life drama.  They are many and  each value is most  important to lead a righteous  life in the right direction to pave a path  towards spirituality. Humanity means caring for and helping others whenever and wherever possible forgetting our selfish interests at times when others n

KARMA AND ITS EFFECTS

The word Karma means action.  It comes from the Sanskrit root 'KRI'.which means to act. It refers to the result of past actions, present actions and actions we will perform  in the future. The karmas of the past, present and future are called Sanchita , Prarabdha and Agaami respectively. SANCHITHA:   These are the result of actions that  have been gathered in this birth  and all other previous births. PRARABDHA:  These are the present actions what we are doing now in this life time and its results. AGAMI:             These are future actions that result from our present actions. Lord Srikishna in Bhagavat Githa  said that every one is   forced to act helplessly according to the qualities he has acquired from the modes of material nature and  therefore no one can refrain from doing something, not even for a moment. Even for the most highly educated person on the mundane plane, it is impossible to get out of the entanglements of Maya, simply by theoretical kn

WHO WILL CRY WHEN WE DIE?

It is natural that if a person dies in a family, all the  blood relations and other members  will cry for the beautiful, meaningful and colorful  memories the deceased has make them witnessed and enjoyed  in their  life and the lessions and life changing values they learnt from him. The people very close feel great pain for the loss of their well wisher.  But there may be some members  also in the family of the deceased,who cry more than the blood relations, for the sake of Society. Since times immemorial we have been hearing  the story of Lord Rama from Ramayana, an Indian Epic.  He was loved by all, and even by His enemies.  He was the embodiment of a perfect human  being.  He was given the title of " Maryada Purushothama " considering him as a Supreme being for His unbroken principles  as an ideal son, a wise brother, a caring husband, a good friend, a best disciple etc., but most importantly a notable and admiring king in the clan of Ishvaku. When Lod Rama entered S

SELFISHNESS

We hate others who are selfish, but justify ourselves when the same feature( selfishness) is within us.  Lack of sympathy has been seen as one of the roots of selfishness. This trait  puts an ugly mark on the soul of an individual. Some selfish people treat others as an option when ever they require some favour from them. After their work is over they treat them  like  strangers. In Mahabharat an Indian epic, Duryodana, son of Dhritharastra, the king of Kourava Dynasty, supported Karna, who was son of low caste person ie., Sutha  in a tournament with his selfish motive. Karna an Archer was not allowed to show case his skills on the basis of his caste.  Duryodana with his selfish motive crowned Karna as king of a small country called Anga, to take revenge against pandavas who are s ons of King Pandu, as he desperately wanted a good Archer on his side to match Arjuna. Likewise in Ramayana an Indian epic, there is an instance of selfishness which showed drastic effect on the
