Spiritual research into the effects of talking softly

Speaking softly is complementary to developing spiritually conducive qualities like having a listening attitude, humility and introversion. By introversion, we mean the quality of looking inwards, trying to be in communion with God and performing all of our actions with this goal in mind. These qualities draw us closer to God and help us with our spiritual practice. Hence, they generate positive spiritual vibrations.

Habitually speaking softly both helps our spiritual practice and protects us from the attacks of negative energies. Such speech is also more pleasant to those who listen to it.

The following subtle picture shows the vibrations attracted and emitted when a person speaks softly.

Do you make efforts to speak softly?

Spiritual Characteristics of Gold

A.) Gold destroys harmful germs in the body.
B.) Gold is the most sattvik (Sattva predominant - spiritually pure) metal among all the metals.
C.) Gold is a metal which can absorb and emit Chaitanyamay (Full of Divine consciousness) waves. Gold is a metal which absorbs sattvik and Chaitanyamay waves and emits them at the same speed into the atmosphere. The gold metal is foremost in augmenting Chaitanyamay Tej-tattva (Absolute Fire Principle) predominant waves. Therefore, the person wearing golden ornaments is benefitted by sattvikta and Chaitanya on a large scale.

Does ancestor worship or venetarian help the deceased?

Ancestor veneration or ancestor worship is practiced in some form or another throughout the world. The types of customs and rituals are varied; in some cultures, ancestors are worshiped as deities.

It is often believed that the departed ancestors can protect or harm us, communicate with us and help us in important decisions in the afterlife.
However, in almost all cases, ancestors have very little ability to influence events on a sustained basis in another plane of existence such as the Earth region.

Sometimes the strength to accomplish the wishes of departed ancestors is given by higher level ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc). Higher level ghosts provide energy so as to create a give-and-take account with these subtle-bodies that they help and thereby get them under their control.

My ancestors all had  a part of me, and I don't think worship of what was gone that long is necessary. How about respect for all they stood for.... Bringing it into today.... Unite for once

Angels and gender

Did you know that angels can be either male or female? Only subtle entities and subtle bodies above the subtle region of Heaven, due to their high spiritual level do not identify themselves with any gender. However, angels generally fall between the 29-35% spiritual level and therefore still associate with a particular gender.

Also, the angels’ low spiritual level implies they are not worthy of our worship.
Dear seekers, what do you think? Who is worthy of our worship? Please feel free to share.

South Carolina floods: Thousands without running water

After a week of steady rain, the showers tapered off Monday and an inundated South Carolina turned to surveying a road system shredded by historic flooding, and in a cruel twist, thousands of residents faced the prospect of going days without running water.

"The flooding is unprecedented and historical," said Dr. Marshall Shepherd, a meteorologist and director of the atmospheric sciences program at the University of Georgia.

It is very difficult experience such situations and we hope for speedy recovery of everyone being affected by the flooding. According to the spiritual research, natural disasters occur as per the law of nature to cleanse itself from Raja-Tama (Spiritually impure) components.

This is on predicted and on expected line. With energy and the heat of the environment increasing exponentially, its flow is getting accelerated. Thus, one part is experiencing sudden increase in heat leading to wild fire and wind bound destructions. Simultaneously the other parts are experiencing the contraction leading to flash floods. The sudden winding is leading to increased earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, we are heading to self-destruction, with Mega Quakes and volcanic eruptions. The only way we can survive is by awakening to the "Principle and Design" on which earth functions to sustain certain balance of energy to matter. This was communicated to all leaders of nations and news media, but every one seems to sleep on it. The earth will react violently and destroy the ego of humanity and will stress humanity to awaken. I am nto sure how much destruction humanity needs to break his ego and awaken

Points about being judgemental

1. Such type of a seeker does not pay attention to ones own defects.
2. Focuses only on others defects.
3. Does not accept others thoughts.
4. He/She is not in a learning state.
5. Preserves likes-dislikes.
6. Only thinks about himself.
7. Is not ready to help others.
8. Is not open minded.
9. Lacks spiritual love.
10. Extroverted and is always stressed.
11. There is a tone of authority in his speech and he in state of teaching.
12. Hold prejudices about others.

1. Increasing prembhav (thinking of others) in oneself.
2. Studying the nature of others.
3. Thinking more of others.
4. Developing expansiveness.
5. Increasing learning attitude.
6. Accepting attitude and asking attitude.
7. Doing according to others wish.
8. Contemplating on every incident by becoming introverted.
9. Staying positive; making efforts to increase spiritual emotion, etc.

Our limitation is realised when we compare ourselves with God. One can develop the above mentioned qualities step by step.

Beginning of cultivation of Divine thoughts: Expansiveness is created by developing spiritual love towards all. The qualities of calmness and stability are increased and the mind becomes blissful. Divine base is achieved and Divine thoughts start to cultivate.

Chris Mintz surviving shots as he faced Oregon community college shooter
An army veteran was in stable condition at an Oregon hospital Friday, a day after facing a gunman during a deadly shooting at a community college in Oregon. Mintz heard gunshots in the classroom next to his and instead of running, walked toward the gunman, according to his cousin, Ariana Earnhardt. “He told the people in his classroom just be calm. He met the shooter at the door and said to calm down. He tried to talk to him and talk him out of it,” Earnhardt told WFMY-TV. Ten people were killed and seven injured in the shooting at Umpqua Community College.
It is very rare to hear about such stories in today's times. It may make us wonder how much people gain spiritually from the act, because it is quite a high sacrifice to make and one would guess it is a valuable one in the scope of universal law.

Please see what spiritual research reveals about the impact sacrificing one's life to help other's at:

The value of concentration

Once during His visit to Chicago, USA, Swami Vivekananda was taking a stroll on the banks of a river. There he saw some young boys with an air gun trying to shoot at eggshells floating in the river. As the shells rolled up and down on the choppy water, the boys could not hit them. None of the boys hit an eggshell, despite trying many times.

Swami Vivekananda was watching their game with keen interest. Seeing this, the boys called out to Him, "Sir, you have been watching us all this time. Would you like to give it a try?" Swami Vivekananda smiled and said that He would like to try. Taking the air gun in His hand, He aimed at the eggshells and concentrated on the target for some time. Then He fired the gun twelve times and hit an eggshell each time!

The boys were awestruck on seeing Swamiji's skill and asked, "Well, Sir, how could you do this? Have you had a lot of shooting practice?" Swamiji laughed and said, "No, I have never practiced shooting." The boys were confused, "Then how is it that you shot so well?" Swami Vivekananda replied, "Well, let me tell you a secret. Whatever you do, concentrate all your attention on it. Think of nothing else. If you are shooting, keep your mind only on the target. Your aim will not fail.

Concentration can work wonders. Even when you are studying, think only of the lesson at hand. Then you will easily remember what you study."

Moral: Concentration means not allowing the mind to think anything except about our target. Since the nature of the mind is such that it thinks continuously and gets easily distracted, it is difficult to achieve concentration. Daily chanting (repeating) of The Lord's Name is very helpful in achieving concentration.

Law of change

"What is the guarantee that materialistic progress, which the world terms as progress and by which, attempts are made to improve a life-style will be maintained over time? Change is the law of nature. Therefore, those who are interested in materialistic progress will automatically change with the passage of time."

Practical tips to improve spiritual vibrations in the home

- Maintaining cleanliness and tidiness: There is a saying: “Where there is cleanliness, there is God” or “Cleanliness is next to Godliness”. Cleanliness and tidiness are Divine qualities and we should keep our homes clean because dirt invites Raja-Tama (spiritually impure) vibrations.

- Keeping doors and windows open: The five Cosmic Principles (Panchatattva) contain Divine consciousness (Chaitanya) and they are active in their tangible form through the earth, water, fire, air, and space we see all around us. Keeping doors and windows open allows the five cosmic principles to do spiritual healing through these elements, so it is best to keep doors and windows open whenever possible.

- Plants around the premises: Just as the plot of land and the premises emit spiritual vibrations, the plants around the premises also emit different spiritual vibrations. Some plants tend to emit more sattvik (spiritually pure) vibrations than others, thus planting these sattvik plants makes the premises more spiritually pure.

Some examples of sattvik plants are the Holy basil plant (tulsi), chrysanthemum, hibiscus, and the banana tree. Whenever possible, it helps to plant such sattvik plants around the premises or keep them indoors in the living room for example.

- Altar facing the east-west direction: If one keeps an altar at home, it is best to let it face the east-west direction. Divine frequencies are released from the Sun as it passes through the sky each day, and these Divine frequencies are best attracted to an altar if it is oriented in the east-west direction.

The most important factor in the vibrations emanating from a home is whether or not the residents have a pleasing personality and are doing regular spiritual practice. For more information, please visit:

Up to which generations of our ancestors are most likely to affect us?

Please see below:

-The influence or impact of ancestors of the past three generations is maximum i.e. up to the generation of our great grand parents.

-The ancestors of up to the last seven generations have some sizeable influence.

-The ancestors beyond the seventh generation do not affect us much. This is because the give-and-take account with the ancestors is fully completed or completed to a large extent in a given birth. Hence in the next birth, the give-and-take with ancestors of this present birth will be negligible if at all.

If a sizeable give-and-take account remains, then we are born in the same family once again.

To help our ancestors and for our protection from ancestral problems you may try chanting a spiritual protective chant of "Shree Gurudev Datta".

Isn't this obvious? The more recent ancestors have more influence on who we are both genetically and in the circumstances of our birth. No study was needed to conclude this.

Destiny and Law of Karma

Many events in our lives are destined, beginning with our birth and the family that we are born into. One is born into a family, where conditions are conducive to undergo ones destiny and where one has significant give-and-take account (karma) with each member of the family. Destiny is played out by various elements, both in the physical plane and in the spiritual realm. The elements in the spiritual realm that mainly influence our destiny are ghosts and subtle bodies (spirits) of our departed ancestors.

By doing spiritual practice as per the six basic principles of spiritual practice, we harness spiritual energy that helps us overcome the influence of these spiritual factors.
