Hindus rate higher in crimes against women

Hinduism which is one of the oldest religion or one can call it a philosophy or even a way of life has been an attraction for most of the westerners and even millions of westerners have taken up Yoga or vegan lifestyle from this ancient religion.

However, the way Hinduism is portrayed in west is quite contrast to what the reality is.

The religion or some might even call it Sanatana Dharma ( Eternal religion )  has its flaws and drawbacks. Hinduism is very much divided due to its caste, culture and languages. Although Mahatma Gandhi and others others fought to undivided this caste based system of Hindus the most parts of India are still caught into the barbarian method of living and subjugating people of their own religion.

Many Gurus from India who became celebrity gurus have a long list of sexual assault on women in India and in west. There has not been a single Hindu Guru who has not been caught in misconduct against women. In India too., Hindu priest exploit the women folk. In India there is a long list of criminal offences registered against the priest for sexual assault on women. Many cases go unregistered. The Human Rights Council has rated India is one of the top 10 countries in the world which is biased against the women and mistreat the women. Alarmingly Hindus make up almost 91% of sexual crimes, assaults, dowry and rapes against the women in India.

Recently the surge of Hindu nationalism has given rise to assault against the women especially in North India and central India.

Women have always been treated as equal to animals in the Hindu society in past. However, educated and cultured Hindus have overcome the shackles of their religion and have started to treat their women alike with equal status and dignity. But much of India is still in darkness for the women.

A culture which boasts about its rich heritage has been engulfed in crimes against women and now its on rise.

Hindu-Christian rift on rise in India

The Archbishop of Delhi has set off a political controversy with a letter that refers to a “turbulent political atmosphere” threatening democracy and secularism and urges all priests to “pray for the country” ahead of the 2019 national election.

OB-VT724_ianil1_DV_20121221000652

The letter, dated May 8 and addressed to all churches in the capital, doesn’t really advocate any candidate or party.

The Archbishop, Anil Couto, also asks in his letter for a prayer campaign and a day of fasting every week “for the nation”. The letter was sent with a prayer that he said must be read at masses on Sunday.

“We are witnessing a turbulent political atmosphere which poses a threat to the democratic principles enshrined in our constitution and the secular fabric of our nation,” the Archbishop says at the start of his letter.

“It is our hallowed practice to pray for our country and its political leaders all the time but all the more so when we approach the general elections. As we look forward towards 2019 when we will have new government let us begin a prayer campaign for our country from May 13…” the letter says.

Subsequently,  the social media in India has fumed with anti-Christian posts. Many Hindus have considered this letter as a direct attack on Hindus in India. They are even comparing this letter to the occasional fatwas issues by Maulanas in India and Pakistan against Hindus. Little do people across the social media know the real contents of the letter nor a copy of the letter.
However, upon investigations we found out that a fake letter has been taking rounds on facebook and whatsapp which is further instigating the sentiments of Hindus.
The current religious scene is pretty much fragile in India and taking advantage of this the enemies of India are using religious sentiments to spread hatred across the nation.
In past religious sentiments between the Hindus vs Muslims, Hindus vs Buddhists, Hindus vs Sikhs has been flared up create turmoil and now its Hindus vs the Christians.
The situation could only get worse as recently some radical Hindus have been posting photos of Jesus Christ memes on social media criticizing and making fun of Jesus Christ. Christians are extreme minority and peaceful and therefore we won’t see a situation like Hindu-Muslim riots as in the past. But Christians are facing unforeseen attacks on their religious monuments and homes by some radical Hindus.
Hinduism-and-Christianity
We still don’t know how much damage it can do to the relationship between Hindus and Christians in India but its taking toll.
Indian media has been instrumental in spreading hatred between the Hindus and Christians without even having a valid evidence of the contents of the letter. Indian media is fully to be blamed to lit the fire of hatred between these two communities.
I have not seen Christians posting anti-Hindu updates on social media nor posting contents making mockery of Hindu Gods or Goddesses. It could only be wise for both these communities to look into the facts and not to fall trap into the new thread of hatred. The Bishop has neither criticized the current government nor he has asked Catholics to vote for a particular political party.
Now we must see if this situation will be normalized intelligently or burst into flames of hatred.

 

Jobs in Poland Scam

Recently many job vacancies in Poland and Germany are uploaded by fake profiles on facebook.

They lead people to their private whatsapp group and somehow convince people to fall into their trap. This is just another method scammers have used to cheat people.

They claim to offer work permit in Poland and thereafter a job in Germany. Well, the matter of fact if one has Polish work permit he or she cant legally work in Germany or any other EU state.

An advance fee ranging from 100 euros to 500 euros will have to be paid by the person seeking job.

According to EU laws its prohibited to ask job seekers for any fee. Any and every fee including the costs of recruitment has to be borne by the employer and if found otherwise the person paying money to the agent is fined or punished by law.

The scammers function on virtual world and they do not have any real office or employment registration licence.

The scammer will also use some videos of DPD Polska or Biedronka or any other company to convince the applicant.

However, DPD has distanced itself from such scams and said they have nothing to do with such agencies and they do not hire from any agencies. All their vacancies are uploaded on their website and people are free to apply for the jobs.

You can stay and work in Poland with your permanent or temporary card. BTW Polish government is making process harder compare 10 years ago. As long as you don’t get a citizenship you are not allow to go to working out of Poland. Furthermore they are not giving since 2014 Pesel numbers to foreigners which makes things more complicated and harder. Its blocking any Foreigners to get Polish Citizenship!!!

 

Indian Muslim Empire Myth

Reviewed as a whole, the period between the last decade of the 12th century and the first quarter of the 18th – the period which is supposed to be the period of Muslim empire in India – is nothing more than a period of long-drawn-out war between Hindu freedom fighters and the Muslim invaders. The Hindus lost many battles, and retreated again and again But they recovered every time, and resumed the struggle so that eventually the enemy was worn out, defeated, and dispersed in the final round which started with the rise of Shivaji.

As we read the history of medieval India we find that only a few Hindu princes made an abject surrender before the proved superiority of Muslim arms. Muslim historians cite innumerable instances of how Hindus burnt or killed their womenfolk, and then died fighting to the last man. There were many instances of Muslims being defeated decisively by Hindu heroism. Many of the so-called Muslim conquests were mere raids which succeeded initially but the impact of which did not last for long. The account which Assam, Rajasthan, Bundelkhand, Orissa, Telingana, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Maharashtra, and the Punjab gave of themselves in successive waves of resistance and recovery, has not many parallels in human history.

It is, therefore, a travesty of truth to say that Islam enjoyed an empire in India for six centuries. What happened really was that Islam struggled for six centuries to conquer India for good, but failed in the final round in the face of stiff and continued Hindu resistance. Hali was not at all wrong when he mourned that the invincible armada of Hijaz which had swept over so many seas and rivers met its watery grave in the Ganges. Iqbal also wrote his Shikwah in sorrowful remembrance of the same failure. In fact, there is no dearth of Muslim poets and politicians who weep over the defeat of Islam in India in the past, and who look forward to a reconquest of India in the future. Hindus have survived as a majority in their motherland not because Islam spared any effort to conquer and convert them but because Islamic brutality met more than its equal in Hindu tenacity for freedom.

MUSLIM INVASIONS WERE NO WALK-OVER

1. Within eight years of the Prophet’s death, the Muslims had conquered Persia, Syria, and Egypt. By 650 AD, they had advanced upto the Oxus and the Hindu Kush. Between 640 and 709 AD they had reduced the whole of North Africa. They had conquered Spain in 711 AD. But it took them 70 long years to secure their first foothold on the soil of India.

2. By the middle of the 8th century they controlled only the highly garrisoned cities of Multan and Mansurah. Their plight in Multan is described by AI Kazwin in Asr-ul-Bilãd in the following words: The infidels have a large temple there, and a great idol. The houses of the servants and devotees are around the temple, and there are no idol worshippers in Multan besides those who dwell in those precincts. The ruler of Multan does not abolish this idol because he takes the large offerings which are brought to it. When the Indians make an attack upon the town, the Muslims bring out the idol, and when the infidels see it about to be broken or burnt, they retire. So much for Islamic monotheism of the Arabs and their military might.

3. Muslim historians have floated two myths about Mahmud Ghaznavi who had succeeded his father, Subuktigin, in AD 997, and who became famous for his 12 or, according to another count, 17 invasions of India. The first myth is that he was interested primarily in demolishing Hindu temples, breaking Hindu idols, capturing prisoners of war, and amassing wealth by plunder, and that he did not harbour any serious intention of building an empire in India. But the very fact that he had annexed to his empire – spread over Khorasan, Iran, Iraq, and most of Central Asia – the Shahiya domain in the North-West and the Punjab as also Multan, which was a Muslim principality at that time, goes to prove that he would not have hesitated in doing the same to other parts of northern and western India, had he found it feasible. He failed in this design not because he lacked the intention but because he met a very stiff resistance in these parts. It is true that his superior military might and skill as a commander succeeded in defeating, in the initial encounters, most of the Hindu princes he met on the field of battle. But the rising tide of resistance in the wake of every victory threatened to engulf him soon after, with the result that he had to content himself with plunder and prisoners of war, and relinquish the coveted territories.The second myth, which has been built up to bolster the first, presents India as if it was an open country which he could enter and leave as and when he pleased.

4. How Mahmud of Ghaznavi was tormented :
a. Mahmud led his first invasion against the Shahiyas of Udbhandapur in AD 1001 when he advanced upon Peshawar. Raja Jayapala was caught unawares, and could not mobilise all his forces in time. The lack of a standing army was to prove the undoing of many Hindu princes in days to come. In contrast, the Muslim militarists always maintained their armed hordes in a permanent state of mobilisation. ( I have explained earlier the motivation for both )

b. Mahmud invaded India again in AD 1008. According to Firishta, Anandapala sent ambassadors on all sides inviting assistance of other princes of Hindustan, who now considered the expulsion of Mohammadans from India as a sacred duty. Accordingly the Rajas of Ujjain, Gwalior, Kalinjar, Kanauj, Delhi and Ajmer entered into a confederacy and collecting their forces advanced towards Punjab, The Indians and Mohammedans remained encamped [at Waihind] for forty days without coming into action. The Hindu women, on this occasion, sold their jewels and melted down their gold ornaments to furnish resources for the war. Mahmud ordered six thousand archers to the front to endeavour to provoke the enemy to attack his entrenchments. The Khokhars penetrated into Mohammadan lines where a dreadful carnage ensued and 5000 Mohammadans in a few minutes were slain. Utbi admits that the battle lasted from morning till evening and the infidels were near gaining victory.

Firishta reports that Mahmud saw his plight and sent some of his elite warriors to attack the elephant on which Anandapala was sitting and directing the contest. The elephant took fright from the naptha balls and flights of arrows and turned and fled. That broke the morale of the Hindu army. It was neither the first nor the last occasion on which the Hindu army became an uncontrollable rabble and suffered defeat and slaughter simply because the elephant carrying its commander turned tail. The Muslim armies were more disciplined.

c. The Shahiyas continued to fight battles and kings like Trilochanapala terrified the invaders. However, they lost when they were drawn into the plains.

d. The Shahiya king with his son, Bhimapala (known as Nidar Bhima), now established a new seat at Lohara (Lohkot) on the border of Kashmir. Mahmud tried to storm it in AD 1015. Firishta tells us that this was the first disaster that the Sultan suffered in his campaigns against India. After some days he extricated himself with great difficulty from his peril, and reached Ghazni without having achieved any success.

e. The next Hindu dynasty to offer resolute resistance to Mahmud Ghaznavi was that of the Chandellas of Kalanjar and Khajuraho. The Chandella contemporary of Mahmud was Raja Vidyadhara. The Ghaznavi marched against Vidyadhara in AD 1018. Mahmud ascended an elevated spot to survey the Hindu host. According to Nizamuddin Ahmad, a medieval historian, Then when he saw what a vast host it was, he repented of his coming and, placing the forehead of supplication on the ground of submission and humility, prayed for victory.  Fortunately for him, the Hindus did not engage him in battle immediately; they made a strategic retreat. Mahmud also promptly set out for Ghazni. He had obtained neither plunder, nor prisoners of war. Hindus could have destroyed him had they pursued him in his retreat. But that was a vision which Hindus had lost. Pursuit of a retreating enemy was contrary to the Rajput code of honour.

The Hindu confederacy also seems to have dispersed soon after. So Mahmud did not have to face a united Hindu host when he again invaded Chandella territory in AD 1022. He laid siege to the fort of Gwalior to start with but failed to take it after investing it for forty days and night

f. Resistance at Somnath :

Dr. Mishra has also given a detailed account of Hindu heroism in defence of Somanath which Mahmud had attacked in AD 1026. According to Firishta, The battle raged with great fury, victory was long doubtful. According to another Muslim account, Fifty thousand infidels were killed round about the temple. Dr. Misra comments: The like of this faith which inspired these fifty thousand sons of the soil to embrace death will be hard to find in the annals of any other land.

Mahmud succeeded in demolishing the sacred image, and plundering the temple treasury. But the rallying of Hindu forces from far and near frightened him into beating a hasty retreat. He dared not return by the road he had traversed on his way to Somanath. Gardizi writes: Param Dev, Badshah of the Hindus, stood in his way disputing his path. Mahmud decided, therefore, to leave the right road back to Ghazni from fear lest this great victory of his should turn into defeat. He left by way of Multan and Mansurah. Many of the soldiers of Islam lost their lives in this way. The Hindu king under reference was either Chaulukya Bhimadeva I of Gujarat or Paramara Bhoja of Malwa who was known to be a sturdy champion of Hinduism. Dr. Misra has reconstructed the military manoeuvers of this king which make an interesting study. Also the story of two guides who led the Muslim army into a desert trap at the cost of their lives.

Delhi, Punjab and Ajmer freed :

One of the worst defeats suffered by the Muslims was at the hands of Arnoraja, the Chauhan ruler of Ajmer (AD 1133-1151). The Muslim commander fled before the Chauhans. Muslim soldiers died of exhaustion and an equal number perished from thirst. Their bodies lay along the path of retreat and were burnt by the villagers. A Chauhan prasasti of Ajmer Museum, line 15, states: The land of Ajmer, soaked with the blood of the Turushkas, looked as if it had dressed itself in a dress of deep red colour to celebrate the victory of her lord.

A Hindu counter-attack was launched after Vigraharaja (AD 1153-1164), the successor to Arnoraja, conquered Delhi and Hansi from the Tomaras. His repeated victories led him to the claim of having rendered Aryavarta worthy of its name by the repeated extermination of the Mlechhas. All territories south of the river Sutlej seem to have been freed from Muslim rule.

Mohammad Ghori’s Tormentors :

Mahmud Ghaznavi’s successful raid on Somanath, one hundred and fifty years earlier, had encouraged Ghuri to imagine that Gujarat was an easy prey. He was dreaming of reaching Somanath.M uhammad Ghuri advanced upon Gujarat in AD 1178 with a large army. Merutuñga writes in his Prabandha-chintãmaNi that the mother of young Mularaja, queen Naikidevi, the daughter of Parmardin of Goa, taking her son in her lap, led the Chaulukya army against the Turushkas and defeated them at Gadararaghatta near the foot of Mount Abu. Mularaja II was a minor at that time. Firishta records that the king of Gujarat advanced with an army to resist the Mohammedans and defeated them with great slaughter. They suffered many hardships before they reached Ghazni. Muhammad Ghuri did not lead another expedition against a Hindu prince for the next 12 years.

t was only in AD 1191 that Muhammad Ghuri caused the forces of Islam to be organised and advanced against the fortress of Tabarhindah (Sirhind) and took that stronghold. This was a frontier fortress held by a Chauhan feudatory. Prithviraja now advanced with his own army and met Muhammad Ghuri at Tarain. Before the onslaught of the Chahmana army, the right and left flanks of the Muslim army broke down and took to flight. The Sultan might have fallen off his horse had not a Khalji youth recognised him and carried him out of the field of battle. The Muslim army, not seeing their leader, fled headlong from the battlefield and did not draw rein till they had reached a place considered safe from pursuit. The Sultan was also brought there in a litter of broken spears. From there, they returned to their own dominion. The Rajputs did not press their advantage to a final conclusion. They were satisfied with Sirhind which was recovered soon after.

Dr. Misra observes: Prithviraja could have now easily consummated his victory by chasing and annihilating his routed enemy. But, instead, he allowed the defeated Muslim army to return unmolested. ( This is what Savarkar calls as Sadguna vikruti. These acts of chivalry ensured the Muslim invaders to win some of the subsequent battles ).

4. How Prithviraj Lost to deceit

Mahmud Ghori tried his stratagem and wrote a letter to Prithviraj :

 I have marched into India at the command of my brother whose general I am. Both honour and duty bind me to exert myself to the utmost but I shall be glad to obtain a truce till he is informed of the situation and I have received his answer.

The Hindus fell into the trap. Firishta records The Sultan made preparations for battle and when the Rajputs had left their camp for purposes of obeying calls of nature, and for the purpose of performing ablutions, he entered the plain with his ranks marshalled. Although the unbelievers were amazed and confounded, still in the best manner they could, they stood the fight. The battle raged upto afternoon, when the Hindus found themselves tired and exhausted. They had not eaten even a breakfast. The fight was finished when Ghuri threw in his reserve division constituted by the flower of his army. The Rajputs were defeated, and suffered great slaughter.

THE TURKISH EMPIRE WAS TEMPORARY

Muhammad Ghuri was subsequently assassinated by the Gakkhars in 1206 AD. Aibak assumed charge. Kalinjar had been reconquered by the Chandellas, Ranthambhor had renounced vassalage to Delhi, Gwalior had been reoccupied by the Pratihars, the Doab was up in arms under the Gahadvad prince Harishchandra, and the Katehar Rajputs had reasserted their independence beyond the Ganges. The Yadavbhatti Rajputs around Alwar had cut off the imperial road to Ajmer. Aibak was not able to reconquer any of these areas before he died in 1210 AD. Iltutmish, succeeded in retaking Ranthambhor and Gwalior, and in widening his base around Ajmer. But he suffered several defeats at the hands of the Guhilots of Nagda, the Chauhans of Bundi, the Paramars of Malwa, and the Chandellas of Bundelkhand. Beyond the Ganges, the Katehar Rajputs had consolidated their hold which the Sultan could not shake. The Doab was still offering a very stiff resistance. His grip on Ajmer had also started slipping by the time he died in 1236 AD

The Sultanate suffered a steep decline during the reigns of Razia, Bahrain, Masud, and Mahmud of the Shamsi dynasty founded by Iltutmish, though its dissolution was prevented by Balban who wielded effective power from 1246 AD onwards. The Muslim position in Bengal was seriously threatened by Hindu Orissa. Another Muslim invasion of Assam ended in yet another disaster in which the Muslim general lost his life and a whole Muslim army was annihilated, Hindu chieftains now started battering the Muslim garrison towns in Bihar. Near Delhi, the Chandellas advanced up to Mathura. The Rajputs from Alwar made raids as far as Hansi, and became a terror for Muslims even in the environs of Delhi. Balban�s successes against this rising tide of Hindu recovery were marginal. He suffered several setbacks. The Sultanate was once more reduced to rump around Delhi when Balban died in 1289 AD.

Dr. R.C. Majumdar has summed up the situation so far in the following words:

India south of the Vindhyas was under Hindu rule in the 13th century. Even in North India during the same century, there were powerful kingdoms not yet subjected to Muslim rule, or still fighting for their independence. Even in that part of India which acknowledged the Muslim rule, there was continual defiance and heroic resistance by large or small bands of Hindus in many quarters, so that successive Muslim rulers had to send well-equipped military expeditions, again and again, against the same region. As a matter of fact, the Muslim authority in Northern India, throughout the 13th century, was tantamount to a military occupation of a large number of important centres without any effective occupation, far less a systematic administration of the country at large.

He further writes

The Khalji empire rose and fell during the brief period of twenty years (A.D 1300-1320). The empire of Muhammed bin Tughlaq broke up within a decade of his accession (A.D. 1325), and before another decade was over, the Turkish empire passed away for ever Thus barring two every short-lived empires under the Khaljis and Muhammad bin Tughlaq there was no Turkish empire in India. This state of things continued for nearly two centuries and a half till the Mughals established a stable and durable empire in the second half of the sixteenth century A.D

Hindu resistance did not cease. The Muslims had occupied the big cities and the fortified towns. But they had no hold on the countryside which was seething with revolt.Mher Rajputs around Ajmer, Chaulukya ruler of Gujarat , , Bhimadeva II, the Chaulukyan king, recovered the whole of his kingdom from the invaders. Blocked by the Senas from East Bengal, Bakhtiyar Khalji advanced into Assam. But his army was destroyed by the king of Kamarupa. He was able to escape with his own life and about a hundred followers. But his army was slaughtered so that he fell sick due to excessive grief and died. he Musalman invasion of the Brahmaputra valley was repeated on several occasions during the next five centuries of Muslim rule over north India, but most of these expeditions ended in disaster and Islam failed to make any inroads into the valley.

Beginning with the first Arab expedition against Thana near Bombay in A.D. 636 the Muslims only succeeded in establishing the Delhi Sultanate in AD 1206, that is, after prolonged and relentless efforts lasting as many as 570 years. The magnitude of the resistance offered by Indians can be easily comprehended if we remember that the duration of the effective Muslim rule over northern India, not to speak of the whole of India which was much less, if ever, lasted only 500 years (upto the death of Aurangzeb in AD 1707 ).

Nor is it anywhere near the truth to say that the British empire in India replaced an earlier Muslim empire. The effective political power in India had already passed into the hands of the Marathas, the Jats, and the Sikhs when the British started playing their imperialist game. The Muslim principalities in Bengal, Avadh, South India, Sindh, and the Punjab were no match for the Hindu might that had resurged. The Mughal emperor at Delhi by that time presented a pitiful picture of utter helplessness. The custodians of Islam in India were repeatedly inviting Ahmad Shah Abdali from across the border to come and rescue

Fraud man to God man – Truth about Yogi Bhajan’s Kundalini Yoga

image228hsybgameoflove

 

Kriyas that sought to force energy up my spine through any means necessary.

So what is Kundalini Yoga? Often associated with Tantra Yoga, Kundalini Yoga is considered the fast way to enlightenment (becoming “god”).

Kundalini (Sanskrit-kund), means “coiled” or “serpent” and represents divine, psychic energy called “serpent power.” It is seen in the form of a coiled, female snake (the goddess aspect of the Divine) nestled at the base of the spine. For Hindus, who worship over 300 million gods, the aim of Kundalini Yoga is to reunite the goddess Shakti with her lover, Lord Shiva, god of destruction and creation, bringing about a state of bliss and enlightenment.

This is the “bliss” the yoga practitioner is said to experience after raising the kundalini energy through seven chakras (energy centres) located from the base of the spine up the spinal column to the crown chakra, the top of the head. Psychic powers are purportedly acquired when a person opens their sixth chakra, the third eye-just above the middle of the eyebrows.

The chanting of mantras, breathing techniques, deep concentration and meditation in Kundalini Yoga brings one into an altered state of consciousness. This is a form of self-hypnosis, the roots of which lie in the occult.

During the 60’s and 70’s, a surge of gurus (men claiming to be gods) traveled from India to America on a mission to convert the West to Hinduism. Along with its companion, Transcendental Meditation, taught by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, yoga was quickly sold to Westerners as a great way to reduce stress, build self-esteem, heal the mind and body, and experience the interconnectedness of all creation.

Harbahjan Sigh Puri (a.k.a. “Yogi Bhajan”) immigrated to the US in the 1970s and built a following amongst largely white, middle-class Americans. He started as a yoga teacher, but soon declared himself a religious leader. His idiosyncratic brand of religion was a blend of yoga, meditation and his quirky personal philosophy. And that composite belief system was frequently denounced and/or criticized by more mainstream and traditional Sikhs.

Over the years Bhajan put together a multi-million dollar financial empire, largely through the devotion, donations and hard work of his American followers. His business interests included AKAL Security, one of the largest private security companies in North America, which relied heavily upon government contracts. He also marketed teas, herbs and assorted health food.

Yogi Bhajan  died a rich man and controlled numerous lucrative companies run by his devotees, including AKAL Security, which was launched from his New Mexico ashram.

Akal now boasts a billion dollars in government contracts.

Sikh Gurus designed Sikhism in the way they did. Traditional Sikh faith offers a complete spiritual path and a complete way of living a human life. Kundalini and tantric Yoga were NEVER taught by the Sikh Gurus. Yogi Bhajan drastically diverted from the teachings of the Gurus with his clap trap theories of Kundalini and tantric Yoga and now he and those who practice under Yogi are suffering for it!

Bhajan was the founder and absolute leader of a relatively small group called the “Healthy, Happy Holy Organization” (3HO) based in the United States with a membership of a few thousand Americans that often took on Sikh names like “Singh,” “Khalsa” and wore white.

Prominent sociologist and Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Offshe stated in an affidavit that “3HO exhibits characteristics common to cult organizations.”

However, his former followers have less than glowing things to say about the dead guru. Many claim that 3HO exploited them and hurt their families. And some women have said that the guru’s attentions were less than spiritual. A former secretary once sued Bhajan for sexual harassment and gross misconduct.

Her lawsuit stated, “The method by which Bhajan induced others to follow him was to pose as a Yoga master and teacher, and then covertly subject yoga students to a process of mental and emotional conditioning in which their personalities are disrupted and ultimately destroyed.” But lawsuits against Bhajan and/or his businesses were quietly settled and the guru lived a life of luxury, until his death last year at 75.

According to renowned psychoanalyst Carl Jung:

“One often hears and reads about the dangers of Yoga, particularly of the ill-reputed Kundalini Yoga.The deliberately induced psychotic state, which in certain unstable individuals might easily lead to a real psychosis, is a danger that needs to be taken very seriously indeed.

New Lenox yoga instructor, Laura Kalinski (given the spiritual name, Balprem Kaur), is a member of 3HO – the Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization founded in 1969 by Yogi Bhajan, a guru from India who called himself the “Lord of the Heavens.” Bhajan boasted about his occult powers and expertise in the occult practices of numerology, astrology, tarot cards, and more. He called for 3HO members to bring in the New Age of Aquarius saying, “The time has come not to search for God, but to be God.” New Agers believe the Age of Pieces (the Judeo-Christian age of the West) must die out in order to bring peace and wholeness to the earth they worship.

While a Sikh by birth, Bhajan was denounced as a heretic by orthodox Sikhs for incorporating Hindu idols, occult numerology, fire pujas (sacred rituals making offerings to an image of a deity), and deviant sexual practices (Tantric Yoga) into the Sikh religion, all of which are strictly forbidden. Some see the late, white-bearded, white-robed Bhajan as a great spiritual Master, but former members of his inner circle, including his top secretary, accused him of being a cult leader who had dictator-like control over his followers using psychological techniques, manipulation, fraud and deceit for money, power, and sexual favors.

Longtime member of 3HO, Gursant Singh, wrote these revealing words about Bhajan: “In his Journal Kundalini Research Institute of 3H0 and a number of his other papers, he leaves his followers in no doubt that he is the prophet of the new age with such mighty spiritual powers that he controls their destinies, their auras and their magnetic fields. He is their Master, their Spiritual Guide and their Guru. Without a living guru they cannot know the truth, and out of all the living gurus, he can reveal the truth best; and out of all his pictures, they must meditate on one picture of him...”

Bhajan requested his devotees to meditate on his picture from 15 minutes to 4 hours a day.

..if you see some guru’s picture on the wall, or religious statues in the entrance area or practice room, something more than yoga might be lurking within the instruction…A group with a hidden agenda can use meditation to download its program”

Yogi Bhajan ~”Guru Gobind Singh forgot somewhere to write that the Khalsa shall do Pooran praan tapaa. That’s the only way I can figure it out.”

Yogi Bhajan – “I was talking to a doctor today…and I said to him, “We are not going to cure people in the future because of medicine. Actually, a person is going to look at a person, and with mental frequency, he is gonna’ cure him.“

Yogi Bhajan – ” Now you say there is no life on Mars? Mars is populated…it is over-populated. The rate of production and sensuality is so heavy, and the beings–they grow so fast that they have to go and make war on all the other planets.”

Beads of Truth, 1972, “The Aura or Magnetic Field” lecture.

“Those who sleep North-South, their electric magnetic field and the magnetic field of the earth are one. They loose their initiative, they become zero. Their magnetic field and the earth’s magnetic field are one, thus, they can not hold the pressure of the earth’s field. Their nerves become weak. That is why you should sleep East-West.”

“Those who tune into him are tuned into HIM in return and this union is the Yoga of Awareness called Kundalini Yoga. Those who practice this will stand liberated.”

“A Date with Yogi Bhajan” lecture Beads of Truth 1972

His operation was included a highly armed billion-dollar security company, and those swords on the fronts of those turbans connote the very violence you’re trying so hard to stamp out with your new mantra. Anger and hatred are human and human is IT because that’s what we are. We’re a fucking hot mess and it’s great. I love my anger. Why try to amputate it like a fucking arm?

I did Kundalini in Park Slope at this ashram for a while and I flapped my arms around and jumped up and down in this white room layered with carpets and bedsheets like a damn fool thinking, someone somewhere is having a laugh because this is BULLSHIT. I had that thought and then like you, actively and consciously disregarded it because I decided I wasn’t being open-minded enough. I was cult-steamrollering my own damn self.

In the end I listened to my bullshit calling voice and did some research.

That charlatan has been taken to court many times, documented online, by former secretaries and assistants who have been sexually harassed and stolen from. He died pretty young by yoga standards—75—from good old heart failure—a disease of affluence. He drove around in a stretch, covered in pricey bling.

The Kundalini method is said to be yoga for the householder. Well tell me which householder has time to wake up at 4AM to chant 180 gurmukhi lines and then go make sure their shit floats and take a cold shower while shouting some other bullshit and putting almond oil all over themselves and then making a pot of hot yogi tea before getting the kids ready for school. He was a fat pig crook and in the Sihk community, which has NO yoga history besides this clown, they are embarrassed by him. Do your research. Listen to your hatred. It has an intelligence that should not be discounted. Great title by the way. I love reading your stuff. It pops.

Those who wear white clothes, but have filthy and stone-hearted minds, may chant the Naam with their mouths, but they are engrossed in duality; they are thieves. They do not understand their own roots; they are beasts. They are just animals.”
–  Sri Guru Granth Sahib,  page 751

Recently I’ve had a unique opportunity to meet with leading Psychiatry Medical Doctors over the last year or so and discuss my 30 years with Yogi Bhajan and his Kundalini/tantric Yoga cult.

I have to thank my wife who being a Psychiatrist here in London has made this interaction with such experts in the field of Psychiatry possible. In my discussions with Psychiatrists from all over the UK, I described Yogi Bhajan’s character, his Kundalini/tantric Yoga from my personal experience and read several portions from Yogi Bhajan’s lectures. 

The Psychiatrist’s conclusion, without exception, was that Yogi Bhajan was psychotic and exhibited severe delusions of religious grandiose. In these conversations with UK Psychiatrists I also described prominent Yogi Bhajan public figures like Guruka Singh, Gurmukh Kaur, Guru Singh, Hari Jiwan Singh and Guru Dev Singh. I read quotations from these leading 3HO Kundalini Yoga instructors as well.

Again the conclusion from all the mental health experts was that Kundalini Yoga practitioners develop psychotic behavior with delusions of religious grandeur which seem to get worse and worse as the length of time practicing KY becomes greater. For example, People like Guruka Singh and Hari Jiwan Singh who have practiced Kundalini Yoga for 40 years make more outrageous delusional statements than a novice KY Teacher Trainer practicing Kundalini Yoga.

If you watch the videos of Guruka Singh and Gurmukh Kaur you’ll readily see how they appear to be almost in some kind of hypnotic trance, they just don’t sound like normal well balanced people. Does Yogi Bhajan’s Kundalini Yoga create delusions about “Magic Aquarian Age energy” beaming down from Jupiter? I submit that Kundalini Yoga is like an addictive drug which may seem to make people better but after time it acts in producing mental and physical side effects like delusions about the “Magic Aquarian Age energy” beaming down from Jupiter and the stars to liberate people who do Kundalini yoga on the banks of the Ganga River!

Another observation I discussed with the psychiatrists was how the Yogi Bhajan way of smashing everyone into altered states by piling on more and more exercises, meditations and perhaps a gong meditation leaves people spacey and prone to induction into his cult. That’s probably why he (Yogi Bhajan) did it and why Kundalini Yoga teachers keep on doing it. The heavy breathing (breath of fire as Yogi Bhajan called it) techniques, loud gong sounds ringing in your ears and hours of Yogi Bhajan mantra chanting, sometimes in front of his picture, put unsuspecting people into an almost trance like state, making students more susceptible to induction into the Yogi Bhajan cult. I told the psychiatrists how Yogi Bhajan would have us hold our arms up for hours in some “kriya” he made up. We were so exhausted after several hours that we’d believe or accept anything Yogi Bhajan said.

Gursant Singh Khalsa

Instructors use “sound current” in the form of mantras–chants said repeatedly to bring about a “higher” state of consciousness. The Adi mantra, Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo, is chanted a number of times to “tune in” oneself at the beginning of each Kundalini Yoga class. Ong Namo means, I bow to the subtle divine wisdom. Guru De Namo means, I bow to the Divine or Infinite Teacher within. Yogi Bhajan taught, “God is your inner consciousness.” In a real sense, you are worshiping yourself. Chanting mantras are said to have penetrating power in the Cosmos connecting you to the deceased Bhajan and past Master Teachers in what is called The Golden Chain, providing divine guidance to the practitioner.

The American Society of Clinical Hypnosis lists over fifty possible dangers from hypnosis in their American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis (Volume 31, Number 1, July 1988, pg. 46).  It’s no coincidence that many listed are the same risks yoga instructors warn about. Dangers of these practices include: severe headaches, depression, uncontrolled weeping or laughter, spasmodic jerking, feelings of intense heat or cold, electricity passing through the body and itching or crawling sensations, memory impairment, hallucinations, identity crisis, mental illness/insanity, suicidal thoughts/suicide, anxiety/panic attacks, heart palpitations, heart attack and death. On the other hand, one may experience intense feelings of a beautiful oneness with the universe, infinite love, and ecstatic bliss.

Writing about Kundalini Yoga, Theosophist/occultist/medium, Alice Bailey, noted in her work, A Treatise on White Magic, that “only one in a thousand aspirants” are at the stage to begin such a practice and that may be “too optimistic.” She warned it could “produce insanity” and made clear “it is a most dangerous undertaking when induced before the mechanism is ready to deal with it” (Lucis Publishing Company, New York NY, 1951, pgs. 590-591).

The best and worst places to be a working woman

20170311_WOC111

To provide a benchmark for progress on gender equality in the labour market, The Economist has published its fifth annual “glass-ceiling index”. It combines data on higher education, workforce participation, pay, child-care costs, maternity and paternity rights, business-school applications and representation in senior jobs into a single measure of where women have the best—and worst—chances of equal treatment in the workplace. Each country’s score is a weighted average of its performance on ten indicators.

The overall picture painted by the data is that the long trend of improving conditions for working women has flatlined within the OECD, a club of mostly rich countries. In 2005, 60% of women were in the labour force; ten years later, this ratio had edged up only slightly to 63% (it was 80% for men in both years). With relatively few women climbing the ranks, and strong old-boys’ networks helping men reach the top, female representation in well-paid and high-status jobs is closer to a third than half. And the gender wage gap—male minus female wages, divided by male wages—is still around 15%, meaning women as a group earn 85% of what men do.

These broad averages conceal wide variation between countries. The Nordic countries clearly lead the world on gender equality at work. The top four positions this year belong to Iceland, Sweden, Norway and Finland, just as they did in 2016 (though Sweden and Norway did switch places). Women in these countries are more likely than men to have a university degree and be in the labour force. They make up 30-44% of company boards, compared with an average of 20% across the OECD. And voluntary political-party gender quotas mean that women are well-represented in parliaments. In October, women won a record 48% of the seats in Iceland’s lower house. At around two-fifths, Scandinavian women’s share of parliamentary seats ranks in the top 10% globally.

At the other end of the index are Japan, Turkey and South Korea. Women make up only around 15% of parliaments in these countries, and are underrepresented in management positions and on company boards. In South Korea, just 2% of corporate directors are female. Similarly, fewer women than men have completed tertiary education and are part of the labour force. Only 35% of Turkish women are working or looking for work, and a mere 16% have graduated from university.

Progress in gender equality has a tendency to build upon itself. In Iceland, which currently provides the most equal working environment for women according to our index, female workers staged a protest last October in which they marched out of their offices early to call attention to the country′s 14% gender pay gap. If Japanese women were to do likewise, they would be leaving much earlier.

Hatred towards Christians on rise in India.

The surge of Hindu nationalist has seen an unprecedented hate towards Christians in most parts of India. Both leading political parties such as Congress and BJP have always used the communal card to gain votes, but this time the hate is directed towards the minority peaceful Indian Christians.  There have been several attacks on Christian worship places and on Christians directly by the members of the BJP and its allied political parties.

Christians are for the first time in India feeling insecure and discriminated. BJP’s earlier agenda was hatred towards the Muslims, but it didn’t work out well for the BJP, Sangh Parivar and VHP due to retaliatory attacks by the Muslims and pressure by the rich Arab nations. Therefore, the attacks have lately been diverted towards Christians.

The main points of ignition is “Missionary activities”, “Conversions”, “Foreign funding”, “Vatican support” and “Christian traitors” have been the key words used by the BJP and its allies to instigate the less literate or ignorant violent Hindus. Good thing is that educated and peaceful Hindus are not falling for this incitement trap, but the criminal ones are. Otherwise it would have been impossible for the Christians to live in India.

Facebook and Twitter is another place where hate filled posts are updated by some anti-Christian elements in India. Facebook is used by few to get into hateful debates against Christians and incite the other Hindus of hatred towards the Christians. Various unchecked historical posts are updated about Christians committing atrocities on Hindus during the colonial era, which leads the ignorant person to get incited.

Hate is the new theme used by some Hindus.

Lets look how the Indian Christians have survived the last 500 years or so in India against all odds:-

Christianity is India’s third-largest religion according to the census of 2011, with approximately 27.8 million followers, constituting 2.3 percent of India’s population.Christianity was introduced to India by Thomas the Apostle, who visited Muziris in Kerala in AD 52. There is a general scholarly consensus that Christianity was definitely established in India by the 6th century AD, including some communities who used Syriac liturgically, and it is possible that the religion’s existence there extends to as far back as the purported time of St.Thomas’s arrival.

Christians are found all across India and in all walks of life, with major populations in parts of South India, the Konkan Coast, and Northeast India.

Roman Catholicism was first introduced to India by Portuguese, Italian and Irish Jesuits in the 16th century. Most Christian schools, hospitals, primary care centres originated through the Roman Catholic missions brought by the trade of these countries. Evangelical Protestantism was later spread to India by the efforts of British, American, German, Scottish missionaries to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ among Indians Catholics. However, in last 20 years a mission of Born Again Christians is used by several Lower caste Hindus to convert the poor class Hindus and lower caste tribal people. 

The Portuguese were instrumental in forcibly converting the Saraswat Brahmins Population of Goa in the 14th century. Today’s Catholic population of Goa can directly or indirectly root their ancestry to the Hindu Saraswat Brahmins. The Portuguese used to plunder and desecrate the Hindu Brahmin temples and forcibly feed pork or beef to them in order to convert the Brahmins. The Brahmin community would later consider themselves as unclean and unworthy to following Hinduism. Few Brahmins escaped to nearby villages which was not under Portuguese control. Request of help was sent to the nearby Hindu kingdoms but all in vain. None of the Hindu kingdoms came to the rescue of the Saraswat Brahmins of Goa. The Saraswat Brahmins who were converted to Christianity would still follow some of the Hindu practices and customs but were punished by the Portuguese. Some Christian converts who were finding it difficult to practice their Hindu traditions fled to Udupi and Mangalore.  However, most converts remained in Goa to follow their new religion, “Catholicism”. Over a period of time the converts got integrated into the Portuguese culture and accepted the lifestyle. However, the migrated converts to Karnataka still followed the ancient Hindu traditions and customs.

The Christians of Goa are called as “Goans” and the Christians of Southern Karnataka are called as “Mangaloreans”.
