Losing Weight the Right Way

Image
When we look at the world with different cuisines and varying food habits, we can't easily conclude anything as to what is a good diet and what is a good weight-loss plan. There is so much research already done and is being done on many aspects ranging from health to fitness to food to cuisine and the timing of consuming food. We also may fall prey to the business tactics employed by various groups who "sell" their technique as the best. In this post, we do an honest attempt to educate our readers about what we researched on these topics and what we found as something that is practical, easy, and which finally 'works'. There is not a specific diet plan for this. This is very simple. We collected information on intermittent fasting and what times are good for what kind of diets. Then we combined various theories and put them into a single action plan. Let us go into the details. First, on Food: It is said that hard foods like meats take 16 hours to 2-3 days to

Compassion

We can understand Compassion as an active sympathy or willingness to bear the pain of others. It is not simply a virtue to practice, but a pious attitude that binds all of us to lead a peaceful life in society. It is defined as a feeling of sympathy for others who are afflicted by difficulties, troubles, sorrow and caught in mishaps. Compassion is the humane response i.e., showing kindness, caring and helping in others' difficulties and the activity that relieves suffering.  It is a force that binds us together as humans and is the foundation by which the pillars of human life rest. Compassion gives meaning to living and enhances our well-being. It is an essential component in society and is absolutely necessary for the survival of humans and other living beings. It is a way of life and is something we all need to receive and give. In the  Indian Epic Ramayana, there is a story relating to Compassion, which is briefly narrated below: After Ravana was killed by Lo

FORGIVENESS

Forgiveness is one of the divine qualities of Human beings such as fearlessness, purity of mind, penance, non-violence, truthfulness, compassion, gentleness, patience, devoid of ego, austerity, charity, etc., Sometimes we hurt others and sometimes we are hurt. In both cases, we cannot avoid mental suffering. Usually, it is not always easy to forgive someone especially if great harm or hurt is caused by that person. The ego is the one that hurts and gets hurt. It plays an important role in personal conflicts and in hurting others or becoming hurt by them in the process. Whenever we commit a mistake, we must be humble enough to keep our ego aside and admit it. Knowing when we are wrong and admitting our mistake,  is a sign of maturity and wisdom. Only courageous people can do this by not only admitting their mistakes but also beg forgiveness if they realize that they have done wrong to others and accept open-heartedly whatever the consequences would be to face. Forgiveness is on

Comments shall be based on truth only

A comment is something that expresses our opinion of something or which gives an explanation of it. It may be a verbal or written remark, criticism, or observation expressing an opinion or reaction. It is a statement that expresses a personal opinion or belief and it may be a report about the behavior of other people.  Nowadays in social media i.e., on Whatsapp, Facebook, etc., a number of messages, pictures, or videos are being shared on smart cell phones. Generally, people tend to post reply comments on the messages, pictures, or videos, without knowing the fact or truth whether those messages, pictures, or videos are real or the content of the said videos is picturized on real happenings or its contents morphed. People are mostly carried away by sensational or popular news and, more often than not, are quick to share fake posts, videos, or articles without analyzing the truth in those things. Everything that is viral may not be real. People should understand that it is adharmic

SANATANA DHARMA

Sanathana is a Sanskrit word that means Anadi (beginningless). Sanathana further means timeless and beyond the time dimension.   Its suitable meaning is something natural and which is eternal. It further implies that it was there, it is there and it will be there forever.  It has no beginning or end. Dharma is from the Sanskrit word  'dhri', which means to hold together, to sustain. It further means truth based on righteous conduct, integrity and harmony in the Universe and about the affairs of life. Dharma represents the character, rights, duties,  religion,  customs, and all behavior considered righteous and morally reputable. It further means that Dharma  is in accordance with Nature, moral, ethical, pious, lawful, etc., Thus Sanathana  Dharma  means "the natural, ancient and eternal way". Dharma  otherwise called Vaidika Dharma , which is the original name of what is now we generally call  Hinduism or Hindu Dharma.  Hinduism is considered to be the

CHARITY

Charity means voluntarily helping those in need as a humanitarian act by giving money, goods, etc., to the poor and needy either directly or through a Trust or Organization. Most forms of charity are concerned with providing basic necessities such as food, water, clothing, health care, shelter, education, etc., Charity  further means sharing what we have earned honestly and ethically with others. It is praised as the greatest virtue in Hindu Dharma.   Real happiness results from giving and not from receiving.  It is our Dharma to give charity and serve the poor and needy in any way possible.  In Bhagavath Githa Lord Krishna , in Chapter 17 verses  20, 21, and 22 taught us about what Charity means:           20:-  datayam iti yad danam diyate  nupakarine deshe kale cha patre cha tad danam  satvikam   smritam.                           Charity is given  to a worthy person simply because it is right to give without expecting in return, at the prop

MASCHARYA(JEALOUSY)

Mascharya is a feeling of jealousy when someone else gets ahead of us or possesses things of value that we don't have. It is a state of intolerance born by seeing good qualities in others. It is a strong emotion that can break any strong relationship. It is a feeling of unhappiness and anger because someone has something which you cannot possess or someone that you want.  It is all about not accepting good qualities in others and is one of the six bad vices.  Mascharya (jealousy) is a form of hatred built upon insecurity and is classified as a mental disease. God does not like people having jealousy in their minds.  Arjuna became dearer to Lord Srikrishna, as the former is devoid of Mascharya(jealousy). In Bhagavat Gjitha  Chapter 9 Verse 1, Lord Srikrishna says to Arjuna as follows: idam tu te guhyatamam pravakshyamy anasuyave Jnanam vijana sahitam  yat   jnatva  mokshyase shubhat Because you are not jealous I shall now explain to you the greatest of all secrets.
