Vedic Maths – Learn arithmetic and get algebra

I came across Vedic maths long ago in school and I was fascinated. Most of the books on Vedic maths focus so much on arithmetic that many people think that Vedic maths is not very useful in the age of calculators and computers. As we grow, our connection with any fundamental science reduces so much that we may only appreciate applied sciences and this is unfortunate for the development of fundamental sciences and we as humans. Even people who debate about Vedicness of these techniques, accept that these techniques reduce computation time for any human and weather you call it as Vedic or anything else it’s usefulness is not debatable. The point that I am going to focus today is how the simple multiplication technique in Vedic maths also explains algebraic formulae. To understand this better let me explain you a Vedic maths method to find a square of any number. Let’s take an example of 47 to understand the method. The method says square the second digit, then multiply the first a

Applications of Reiki in everyday life

       Evolution seems to be an eternal law and as a part of evolution, people have been trying to solve problems by their own ways. It’s important to recognize and validate these attempts to learn and evolve further. Rejecting anything outright is an injustice to the effort and also to the person who put that effort. I have been finding ways to solve various problems that I came across by drugless way and I came across Reiki almost 7 years back. I first heard and then also saw its effects. I was wondering how it can be useful for me. Before we had a baby, I thought this can be worth evaluating and I did a first and second degree course. The concept of Reiki is very simple. Reiki means universal energy and this energy is used for healing through human body. While doing the course I could experience the energy myself and realized that this is certainly going to be helpful. After having a baby Reiki turned out to be a very handy. The biggest challenge that we face with infants i

Karma Yoga and Excellence

                Being a quality assurance professional; this topic is very dear to my heart. This topic is also one of the very important concepts in Indian spirituality and also a pathway for excellence. As far as I know, this topic was first coined in Bhagvadgeeta. Bhagvadgeeta is a conversation between lord Krishna and his disciple Arjuna in the middle of the battlefield.                One of the recent spiritual leaders and professor of philosophy Gurudev Ranade said, “Excellence is the mark of spirituality” and I think this is a very good scale to measure spirituality rather than anything else. Modern psychologists have been trying to model excellence as many people can excel using the model and psychologists have been getting some success in modelling excellence.                When we discuss excellence or quality of karma; mastery on the topic and required skills are very important. This is important in the context of spirituality because Indian spirituality gives imm

Get best out of three and half Muhurtas in Indian calendar Part 1

As I mentioned multiple times before, ancient Indians successfully merged all the best practices in day to day life to make the life better. One of the highly considered things in Indian calendar is Muhurta or selection of good time. The concept behind Muhurta is selecting good time for doing anything important or special. This, in fact, is in sync with the basic concept of Astrology . Even though I believe in the concept of Muhurta and have seen some mesmerizing results, I feel that people have been giving too much of importance to Muhurtas than actually needed. There are certain challenges in selecting a Muhurta and let’s look at them a bit. The biggest challenge is that the rules on which Muhurtas are decided differ from text to text. As far as my study of Muhurta goes; I have seen that every ancient text on electional astrology (Muhurta) has a variation of a particular rule!!! Secondly, no one has explained the rationale behind the rule that they stated and due to this fact alm

Science in Indian Culture – Gudhi Padwa

Many Indian traditions and customs have some science, reasoning and history behind it. Even though we follow our traditions, we have lost the context of some of our traditions. Being an intelligent culture, we may stop following our customs and traditions unless we know the science or reasoning behind it. Indian culture was totally based on the scientific knowledge known at that point of time. It has also evolved over the period of time. There may be other cultures that also have some scientific basis and it will be very interesting to learn about them. If you know any such scientific custom in any culture please add your comments to this blog post. Few days back, I published blog named ‘ Indian concept of time ’ that explains the 60 year lunar cycle and also when a year begins for Indians. Hindu year always begins between 15 th of March and 15 th of April. Interesting enough, many cultures inside as well as outside India, start New Year in March or April. The most natural re

Hypnosis - No Pain, Just Gain

In my last 21 years of practice of astrology, I have been finding ways to help and support people in various ways. 15 years ago when I was first introduced to hypnosis I never thought that it will do wonders in the life of so many people. Hypnosis has transformed life of many people in various ways including me. Today, I am just going to focus on one aspect of hypnosis and that is pain control and elimination. Pain is one area where medicine is not very effective. What I mean is, one need to take medicines for pain and medicine is only effective for certain duration. There are also many side effects of pain killers. Hypnosis is very effective for pain control along with many other areas. I would like to share my recent experiences about pain elimination using hypnosis and there are many more from the past. One patient had severe back pain. According to the doctor, she has some gap in spinal discs due to wearing of bones. This was a chronic issue for her and she was suffering fro

Shall we really consider Vaastu compliance and is Vaastu compliance more important than horoscope?

This is an interesting question for most of us. Now days Vaastu compliance has become so important that everyone cares about it. It is surprising to also find out sometimes the focus being shifted from Astrology to Vaastu or fengshui. The real question is, is Vaastu different from Astrology. As mentioned in Branches of Astrology blog. Astrology has a branch named Samhita. Varahamihira in his Bruhat Samhita has dedicated a chapter for Vaastu so an astrologer is supposed to know about Vaastu as well and of course Vaastu is a part of astrology. In any horoscope 4 th house is a house of land / home. Interestingly I found that people who have afflicted 4 th house usually some Vaastu compliance issue. I have also found that people having very good 4 th house usually have a compliant Vaastu. It is a good idea to check Vaastu compliance while buying a house or land. In case, you already have a house, then there are many alternatives that can help you to make the compliant withou

How to read north Indian style horoscope

In the course of explaining details of astrology it is possible that I may explain few horoscopes and it is useful to understand the basics of reading horoscope. Today we will learn how to read horoscope drawn in north Indian way. Once you learn this, south Indian way is not very difficult.                A horoscope consists of houses and signs. You may know that there are total 12 signs and there are 12 houses as well. Every planet is posited in one of the 12 signs sign and in one of the 12 houses. The most important sign is ascending sign or an ascendant. This is also called Lagna in Indian astrology.                In north Indian style, houses in a horoscope are shown at fixed location. Below diagram shows houses in a north Indian horoscope.  So 1 means first house, 2 means second house and so on… In your horoscope you may see different numbers than above diagram and that is because we have just put number to explain houses and in real horoscope ascendant sign is writt

Detailed Explanation of 'Adhika masa' (intercalary month), 'tithi' or 'paksha'

The calculation of lunar months is totally dependent on the movement of sun. As we have already told any month which starts when moon is in nirayana Pisces is Chaitra. Because the lunar year can be co related with solar year. It also means that the number of solar years and lunar years are always going to be same in a specific time interval. Thirty lunar days consists of a lunar month. Three hundred sixty and sixty lunar days consist of a lunar year. In one solar year there are 371 lunar days. So in every solar year there are more 11 lunar days. When this sum goes to 30 days one more month is formed. In that case the lunar month is of 13 months and lunar year is of 390 days. This extra month is called as ' adhika masa' or intercalary month .           Let us take an example. The month in which there is no transition of sun into another rasi happens to be an 'adhika masa'. If a month starts when sun is in Aries and till this month ends there is no transition of su
