Random Thoughts on Swami Ramdev, Arundhati, Shashi Tharoor, Banabhatt ki Aatmkatha.

On Swami Ramdev's new political party:

The plunge into politics by Gurus is not unprecedented; but to stay untainted, stay unmoved by the corruption caused by power, to stay untouched by the material claims of the world, and serve people, is indeed the real test of a Yogi. Physical exercise (the realm of asana), as we all perhaps know, is one of the minor ingredients of Yoga; control over breath is another minor one, but control over desires to the extent of negation (vairagya), control over 'karma' (deeds and thoughts), acquisition of vivek (rightful, aware discrimination), are harder. Swami Ramdev has taught millions how to rein in the physical part, the consciousness of body (chitta), but in politics his samskara (memory and imprint of every karma [action-thought], his santosh (contentment within), his vittiyan/pravittiyan (tendencies), his prakriti (nature) will be really tested. Mahapurush banna asaan nahin (It is not easy to be a mahapurusha) Purusha is the one who rises beyond the worldly needs and worries, beyond dukha (sorrow), and knows his prakriti (nature) so well that he reaches the vivek of shunyata (emptiness), the state of perfect union with Ishvara (divinity or infinity)!

On Arundhati's article about Maoists:

Rhetoric without logic, and histrionics with historical perspective, are good for publicity and getting more media attention, but to disgrace Gandhian methods (after participating in Narmada Movement), to expect us to treat the bloodthirsty Maoists with empathy and forget that they have an agenda that goes beyond justice, to expect us to think that she has any solutions beyond her howl, is too much to ask. More on this later (a long poem/ work in progress).

Shashi Tharoor

Shashi, by definition, waxes and wanes... Another Amavasya, follows after another Purnima... In the puddle of politics, some mud is bound to splatter on the thinker who steps into it! Rilke once remarked that the world is never hasty in making someone appear as heroic, one has to go through numerous, stringent tests. For Shashi, this is a battle lost, but then it will prepare him for bigger challenges. If he sinks now, it will just mean that he was only good to get so far; I hope he can swim to safety and reclaim a position where he can be the intellectual politician we all desire him to be.

Banabhatt ki Aatmkatha by Hazariprasad Dwivedi

After reading Banabhatta ki Aatmkatha by Hazari Prasad Dwivedi (Hindi Novel), the landscape of my imagination and words that fill it in Hindi, have transformed it from a desert into a rain-forest. Rich, lush, full of poetry and sound, picturesque and fragrant with Hindu philosophy. More on it in English/Hindi soon. {Bana was one of the great Sanskrit poets; 7th century AD).

PART 1

YOU ARE 100% CORRECT IN WHAT YOU SAY BUT THERE IS MORE.....

You see, Bush Sr., & Jr., Clinton, Regan, Carter, Obama, Ford...ALL these presidents are in what is dubbed a SECRET SOCIETY called The Moloch Axis Demoniacs (i coined the phrase myself...Dr. A.P. and i don't use my full name because WHO knows WHAT sinister crap they'd do to me IF they found out?) or M.A.D. for short.

These people, and there’s obviously more of them (Cheney, Rumsfeld etc.) than the ones mentioned, control KEY positions not just in government, business, society etc. They are GRADUALLY erroding MORAL/FAMILY VALUES in society. SO gradual that it's like hairloss! You see it ever so slowly and you have to be a keen eye to boot!

For example, women in the workforce...they go to work so WHO takes care of the kids? Some goofs getting minimum wage who could care less about those kids. Family split apart because NOW both parents work and the cost of life itself purposely increased to perpetuate this separation. Kids grow up with NO moral/family values. Repeat this a few generations and before you know it, you have mindless zombies that don't know RIGHT from WRONG! Easily programmable to get in debt, be anti-christ-like etc.

Also, the coming mark of the beast 666. Remember HOW it all used to be ca$h only? Then they introduced checks, then credit cards to get yourself in serious financial troubles, then ATM cards, and now that STUPID SWIPE-PASS card. What is the purpose of all this? To get people broken down enough and stupid enough through putting FLUORIDE in the drinking water and ASPERTAME in soda drinks/pop cans so we ALL can accept the 666 chip. So NOBODY can buy or sell or own ANYTHING lest he has the mark of the beast (anti-christ) which is 666.

I can go on for days & days as to the subtleties and more examples but i think you all SEE the points i make here. It's all SUBTLE and GRADUAL negative changes day in & day out that these M.A.D. demons (because they are demonic and have placed their trust in demons in exchange for their souls and material possessions here on earth) are passing into laws in Canada, USA, UK, SPAIN, FRANCE etc.

PART 2
They are genetically modifying the food so that the REAL NORMAL SEEDS will eventually be extinct and the modified canola, corn, soy and cotton seeds will be the ONLY ones left. Genetically modified means that these NEW seeds that are in almost ALL USA store bought products have the herbicide, fungicide, pesticide and who knows what already in the seed. THEREFORE, when you eat that mishmash, WHO THE HELL KNOWS WHAT IT WILL DO TO YOUR INTESTINES OVER TIME! And of course, the industry (Monsanto) TELLS US.."Ohhh..it's ALL safe to eat jajajaja". SAFE TO EAT? Just look at the bees landing on these genetically modified crops and their stomachs are being ripped apart & THEY DIE! Yet you SEE HOW funny it is on TV/MEDIA that NOBODY, including the M.A.D. payed-off demonic scientists don't even whisper/mention the OBVIOUS that i just stated here?

Like i said, i can go on and on for days giving you more & more & more examples of the gradual demonic end-game these M.A.D. are playing with us. But like i said, i think you all reading this get the picture. And by the way, i am a Dr. and guess what? I DO NOT WORK FOR THE M.A.D. OR HAVE SOLD MY SOUL TO A DEMON! But....i live in virtual poverty somewhere on this planet with a family to feed and barely scrape by. And IF you think that sounds bad, well, this AIN'T nothing compared to what the M.A.D. have in store for ALL of us in the aforementioned countries (and more) i listed. And again, ALL their moves are subtle and gradual like a chessgame being played out with the regular folks as the pawns.

I sometimes WONDER WHY the regular folks in these countries NEVER do ANYTHING TO STOP these demonic morons. It doesn't matter IF you vote Republican or Democrat because from those 2 choices, they are BOTH a part of M.A.D. Same with Canada and their Liberal or Conservatives...same M.A.D. , and on and on and on. I sometimes wonder.....you NEVER see ANY of these M.A.D. criminals go to trial or imprisoned for fraud on the people yet IF little billy J-Walks across a bussy street he gets a ticket he must pay! When will Bush Jr. & Cheney and ALL those involved in blowing up 3 buildings in Manhattan and blaming it on Arabs EVER be brought to justice? NEVER because when it FINALLY is discovered what they did, they'll be safely dead from old age and the vast majority of the people in the USA will be soooo brainwashed with NO moral/familiy values they will have already taken up the 666 mark and be worshipping the anti-christ.

PART 3
Sometimes it makes one wonder WHY there are NO good people that will step up (with God as their guide) and put a STOP to these M.A.D.?? That is one of the BIGGEST questions i ask myself almost everyday! Maybe people are SCARED? Maybe they are waiting for God to MAGICALLY guide them without realizing that God doesn't work in that manner/way.

I just HOPE somebody puts a STOP to M.A.D. or we are ALL going to be really in BIG trouble!

The above is a LOT to think about, believe me, i have been living it since 2005, and jobless to boot! And i am a Dr. so go figure?? But i WILL NEVER SELL MYSELF TO A DEMON OR THE M.A.D. so how about them cookies :)

Peace be unto you and please WAKE UP PEOPLE!

So what did u think bro?

Hi Pedro,

The farmer suicides in India, over 200,000 in past decade are linked to their inability to reuse genetically modified seeds and a chain of events initiated by their discarding their time-tested (but less productive in short run) seeds and way of living.

There is rising awareness now that the junk food is advertized most and is leading to more overweight and unhealthy people than ever... much remains to be done to ensure that less is spent on making/selling/advertizing junk food, and more for providing meals to mouths that go without one.

The weak protests that go unheard so far are going to become an uproar someday. To disregard greed and put interests of people as paramount was what kings failed to do, so they had to go; now it is corporate sponsored politicians... But before pointing fingers and raising a howl, we must try to define a path or direction for our own selves and for this worldwide struggle against exploitation and inhumanity, struggle against rogue governments, dictators, armies, corporations, or just your own family members. Before these is the struggle within, where a lot of garbage needs to be disposed after proper understanding of our own failings and fallability.

Pedro, perhaps it is a roundabout way of saying that I am quite concerned about the economic, social and moral outcomes of the things you mention, and I am searching for answers myself.
