Four kinds of karma

Being under the illusion that the world around us is not just hostile to us, but, moreover, unfairly hostile, we deprive ourselves of the opportunity to develop. Because if a person takes the position “I am perfect, and the world is imperfect”, such a worldview concept deprives a person not only of the opportunity to develop, but also of the very meaning of such development. After all, why make efforts if the cause of suffering is the injustice of the world?

Even 2500 years ago, Buddha Shakyamuni said that disbelief in the law of karma is the most severe ignorance into which a living being can fall. In the Sutra so called, the Sutra on the law of Karma, the Buddha explains in detail to Ananda and other disciples that man himself is the cause of both his happiness and his suffering.

About consciousness
What is primary, being, or consciousness

This eternal philosophical question is directly related to our life. Being is the conditions in which we live. Being includes everything – the place of residence, the surrounding material environment, finances, the people around us. Any observant person can easily notice that among the materially wealthy people, not all people with good inner qualities are far from being. We can say the same about unsecured people. One can cite as an example the life of a criminal in prison – the prison itself will not teach the criminal the true human qualities. The life of a thief in the wild can, in fact, differ little from the life of a criminal in prison. The scenery may be different – he may have a good house, a servant and security, but it will be just a well-decorated prison, because the consciousness of such people, both in the wild and in the prison, will be the same.

Complex “Surya Namaskar” – Salutation to the Sun (part 4)

Muscles and skeleton: Surya Namaskar trains all the major muscles and joints of the body. The muscles contract and stretch, and all the contaminated, stagnant blood goes to the lungs and kidneys for cleaning. This is a great method to warm up the body before doing asanas.

Subtle influences: Surya Namaskar can bring many additional and, possibly, more important benefits than purely physical ones. It depends on your attitude. If you do the exercise consciously, and fully surrendering to the recitation of mantras, breathing and movements, it will lead to a calming mind. Therefore, it is very useful for eliminating emotional conflicts, neurosis and stress, especially if it is supplemented by other yoga practices. If a person is prone to piety, then he can do the exercise with a full understanding of the importance of sun worship. It will cleanse his heart and mind. Continue reading
