What is Transmission of Yogic energy(Pranahuti)?

Image
In Sanskrit, 'prana' means life-force and 'ahuti' means offering. So pranahuti means ‘offering of the life-force’.  Pranahuti(transmission) is a way to accelerate one's spiritual growth with the grace of a Spiritual Master. The energy flows directly from the Spiritual Master to the individual via heart to heart. In the spiritual practice, the flow of yogic power from the Master to the disciples plays an important role in the transformation of man into a perfect human being. It regulates the mental tendency from going off track and thereby brings his senses and activities into a state of perfect balance and moderation. Spiritual training for the attainment of higher stages is only possible only by the process of Yogic transmission and by no other means. In support of this verify the following:  It is stated as follows in the 3rd sloka of Dakshinamurthy Stotram by  Adi Sankara Charya. "Citraṃ vaṭa-taror-mūle vṛuddhāḥ śiṣhyāḥ gurur yuvā    Gurostu maun

Varna is the nature of an individual based on gunas(Sattva, Rajas, and Tamas) and activities in  which one is interested in a particular kind of job or occupation to earn a living, and Caste means a lineage of an individual about which job or profession his/her very early ancestors used or made to do as a family profession. The whole varna was made keeping in view the dharma that one had to follow.  Varna was never considered by birth if we go through the following instances of our great literature. In Srimad Bhagavad Gita Chapter IV Verse 13, Lord Krishna clearly states that the four Varnas are based on their work and their basic nature and not related to birth at all. "chātur-varṇyaṁ mayā sṛiṣhṭaṁ guṇa-karma-vibhāgaśhaḥ  tasya kartāram api māṁ viddhyakartāram avyayam" The four varnas have been created by Me through a classification of the gunas and activities. Even though I am the creator of this system, still know Me to be the non-doer and eternal. Lord  Krishn

Your Life is Your Program

In the current age, a lot of people working from home are increasingly interconnected with almost all the world through the electronic gadgets like mobile phones, computers, laptops, iPads, tablets, etc. With these new habits made in the recent decades, it feels as if this is the new norm. Nowadays people are expected to be available online except when they are sleeping, and are expected to answer to the innumerable IMs, chats, and other messages that keep bombarding the devices in hand. For newcomers, it may seem to be an enjoyable experience to start with, but soon, the disillusionment occurs, when the lines between Work and Personal life get not just blurred, but simply wiped out! At this juncture, what the professionals need is not the tips and techniques to run and win the rat race only in the materialistic world, but it is more about being selective in choosing the projects, either in personal life or at work, and giving their best. So, focused few versus insignificant many. Prog
