Matthieu Ricard: How to let altruism be your guide

02:52 21 January in Articles of Interest

What is altruism? Put simply, it's the wish that other people may be happy. And, says Matthieu Ricard, a happiness researcher and a Buddhist monk, altruism is also a great lens for making decisions, both for the short and long term, in work and in life. Sometimes called the "happiest man in the world," Matthieu Ricard is a Buddhist monk, author and photographer. ...

Mantras – An interview with Jonathan Goldman

1) What is the science behind Mantra chanting? There are a number of different “sciences” behind mantric chanting. Some of these are the “hard” science—physics, psycho-acoustics, etc. Some of these are spiritual sciences such as the different yogic practices that work with sound. I write about many of them in HEALING SOUNDS. There’s also a lot of information on my website: www.healingsounds.com On one level, one can see that mantric chanting, as observed years ago by Dr. Herbert Benson, helps induce the “relaxation” response, causing reduction of heart beat, brain waves and respiration. On another level, as Dr. David Shananoff-Khalsa believes, mantric recitation enables the tongue to stimulate the acupuncture meridians inside the mouth (particularly on the roof), thus enhancing help. Dr....

Once the four Pandavas (except Yudhishthira who was not present) asked Krishna: "What is Kaliyuga and what will happen during Kaliyuga?" Krishna smiled and said "Let me demonstrate to you, the situation of Kaliyuga." He took a bow and four arrows and shot them in four directions and ordered the four Pandavas to go and bring them back. Each of the four Pandavas went in the four different directions to search for the arrows. When Arjuna picked an arrow, he heard a very sweet voice. He turned around and saw a cuckoo singing in a spellbinding voice but was also eating flesh of a live rabbit which was in great pain. Arjuna was very surprised to see such a gory act by such a...

How To Use Your Subconscious Mind For Anything You Desire

03:49 19 January in Articles of Interest

"The subconscious mind controls 95 percent of how our circumstances manifest and our beliefs shape our lives. The power of the subconscious is about a million times greater than our conscious mind.” Your mind is similar to an iceberg. The conscious mind is like the part of the iceberg that you can see above the surface. But the bulk of the mind– the subconscious– is below the surface where you can't see. The most important thing you need to know about the subconscious mind is that it is always “on”. That is, it is active day and night, regardless of what you are doing. The subconscious mind controls your body. However, you cannot hear this silent inner process with your conscious...

02:24 08 January in Articles of Interest

The Atmashatkam (आत्मषट्कम्, ātmaṣaṭkam), also known as Nirvanashatkam (निर्वाणषट्कम्, Nirvāṇaṣaṭkam), is a śloka in six stanzas written by the Hindu philosopher Adi Shankara summarizing the basic teachings of Advaita Vedanta, or the Hindu teachings of non-dualism. It was written around 788-820 CE. It is said that that when Adi Shankara was a young boy of eight and wandering near River Narmada, seeking to find his guru, he encountered the seer Gaudapada who asked him, "Who are you?". The boy answered with these stanzas, which are known as "Nirvāṇa Śaṭkam" or Ātma Ṣaṭkam". Gaudapada accepted Adi Shankara as his disciple. The verses are said to be valued to progress in contemplation practices that lead to Self-Realization.[citation needed] "Nirvāṇa" is complete equanimity, peace, tranquility,...

How Sleeping Positions influence Dreams

01:54 07 January in Articles of Interest

There are a number of things that can influence our dreams — sleeping in a new environment can induce some wilder visions, and you may have heard that eating cheese or Chinese food before bed can also bring on more lucid dreams. But has it ever crossed your mind that whether you sleep on your right side, left side, or face down might have an impact on your dreams? Researchers think our sleeping positions may actually have a significant effect on our sleeping minds. There have been multiple studies that explore the effects of sleeping position on dreams, and the first one was published in Sleep and Hypnosis back in 2004. 63 volunteers were asked to sleep either on their left...
