Once all the creatures were created and their hunger satiated they began to reproduce. Soon there were too many of them. Brahma could see that the cosmos was choked with too much life. He wondered where he had made an error.

Saraswati pointed out to him that he had forgotten to create death.for life to go on he realised death was essential. He created Mrityu, He ordered her to go and kill all creatures. Mrityu was horrified of the formidable task and fled. Shiva found Mrityu crying in a desolate place. He consoled her and assured her that all those who would die would be reborn. So she would be mother even though she would kill. Thus it came to be that Death became not the end of life but a gateway to a new one. Mrityu took the form of Mahakali, devoured all life and Shiva became Mahakala, the lord of time, the regenerator. Life became a wheel, rotated by Shiva an eternal cycle of births and rebirths.

Mobilize your soul

Curated: Saakshi, July 2018

How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: Don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works.

Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight.

If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things you can say instead:

“You look so healthy!” is a great one.

Or how about, “You’re looking so strong.”

“I can see how happy you are — you’re glowing.”

Better yet, compliment her on something that has nothing to do with her body.

Don’t comment on other women’s bodies either. Nope. Not a single comment, not a nice one or a mean one.

Teach her about kindness towards others, but also kindness towards yourself.

Don’t you dare talk about how much you hate your body in front of your daughter, or talk about your new diet. In fact, don’t go on a diet in front of your daughter. Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say, “I’m not eating carbs right now.” Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself.

Prove to your daughter that women don’t need men to move their furniture.

Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.

Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul.

Fasting

This year’s(2016) Nobel Prize in Medicine has gone to a Japanese scientist Dr. Yoshinori Ohsumi for his research on AUTOPHAGY.

Autophagy, an Intracellular Recycling System otherwise means “eating self”. In other words, the process by which the human body eats it own damaged cells and unused proteins. Autophagy is a natural process and also one which occurs in cases of starvation. The failure of autophagy is one of the main reasons for accumulation of damaged cells which eventually leads to various diseases in the body. Autophagy is important to prevent/fight cancer and also plays a vital role in degrading and ‘consuming’ cells infected by bacteria and viruses.

We have to observe here that ancient India had recommended a practice of fasting (Ekadasi) one day in a fortnight. Many of us religiously follow this practice to this day as a penance for spiritual progress without any idea of the biological and therapeutic benefits of this practice. Through this process of fasting induced autophagy, our body repairs it’s damaged and degenerated cells or uses up the proteins of the damaged cells for its survival.
Whenever modern science conquers a frontier in any field, it somehow relates back to a quaint spiritual practice followed in India for generations.

A day in a fortnight spent in prayer and divine contemplation was a tonic for t mind and soul while the practice of fasting ensured that the body would heal and rejuvenate itself. ~ Forward

This is in essence a form of cellular cleansing. The body identifies old and substandard cellular equipment and marks it for destruction. It is the accumulation of all this junk that may be responsible for many of the effects of aging.

Fasting is actually far more beneficial than just stimulating autophagy. It does two good things. By stimulating autophagy, we are clearing out all our old, junky proteins and cellular parts. At the same time, fasting also stimulates growth hormone, which tells our body to start producing some new snazzy parts for the body. We are really giving our bodies the complete renovation.


In the 1980s, American longevity re-searcher Roy Walford found out that animals and cells that only get 70 % of their normal food intake live longer. Since 2010, more and more publications have described the positive effects of fasting in cell cultures and animal models: Fasting allows cells to defend themselves better against all kinds of oxidative damage and become less prone to inflammation. Fasting cells go into a kind of protective mode and activate genes that trigger self-repair and regeneration.
