Positive changes only 9 months after starting spiritual practice

I began studying yoga, meditation, alternative medicine, astrology, etc. around 2009 in order to get my wreck of a life together. At the time I had serious problems with bad relationships, prescription and street drugs, and alcohol. I smoked two and a half packs of cigarettes a day. I never had any money. I remember walking down the street one evening with what seemed like the Titanic on my shoulders and thinking “If this is how I’m going to feel for the rest of my life, I’m not sure it’s worth it.”

At that point I had tried religion, atheism/rationalism, drugs, girls, music, science, medicine, martial arts – everything – to try to get myself into a place of relative sanity and free from the grips of depression and addiction. The hardest part was having no idea how I’d ended up in the predicament I was in, with no idea when it started or where it would possibly end. I resigned myself to the idea that life was dismal.

Dear seekers, please visit this article to find out what happens next in JT's journey.

A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. As he was putting up a sign ‘For Sale’ on his fence, he felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the eyes of a little boy.

“Sir,” he said, “I want to buy one of your puppies.”
“Well,” said the farmer, “these puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money.”

The boy thought for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer. “I’ve got fifty cents. Is that enough to take a look at the puppies?”
“Sure,” said the farmer.
And with that the farmer called out loudly, “Dolly, come on out!”

Dolly ran out from the doghouse and down the ramp followed by four little balls of fur. The little boy pressed his face against the chain-link fence. His eyes danced with delight.
As the dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed something else coming out of the doghouse. Slowly another little ball appeared; this one was noticeably smaller. Down the ramp it slid. Then in a somewhat awkward manner the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up.
“I want that one,” the little boy said, pointing to the undersized and weak pup.
The farmer knelt down at the boy’s side and said, “Son, you don’t want that puppy. He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would.”
With that the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. In doing so he revealed steel braces running down both sides of his leg attached to the specially made shoe. Looking back up at the farmer, he said, “You see sir, I don’t run too well myself, and this puppy will need someone who understands.”
The world is full of people who need someone who understand.
Dear readers, we all can learn a great deal from this story and the importance of developing virtues such as unconditional love, kindness and compassion.
Learn more on how we can develop these divine qualities through spiritual practice.

How to chant with concentration

Once we start chanting, one of the main obstacles we face is that other thoughts keep coming into the mind. They are mainly due to doubts about chanting and due to impressions in the subconscious mind (chitta). In this article we give some practical tips on how to improve concentration in chanting. We can bear in mind that achieving concentration in chanting is the target and not the tool.
We can increase concentration in chanting by following any of the tips below:

a. Keep a count of chanting
b. Chant aloud
c. Increase the speed of chanting
d. Chant in a quiet place
e. Chant upon waking up and before going to bed
f. Synchronise chanting with the breath
g. Complement chanting with a hand posture
h. Taking autosuggestions for chanting
i. Steady our gaze
j. Chant with eyes closed
k. Chant in front of an image of God or Deity whose Name is chanted
l. Remember God, or the Deity of the chant or one’s Guru
m.Chanting with Prayer
n. Chanting with spiritual healing remedies such as the box therapy or salt water remedy

However, even when we are unable to chant with concentration, it is important to persevere with chanting. Concentration will eventually be achieved.
Have you tried any of these tips above? Please share your experiences in the comment section below

The colour and brightness of trees can change due to the gaze of Saints
On 30 Dec 2015, when His Holiness Dr Athavale looked out of the balcony of His study room towards the sky at night, He experienced something quite unique. He found that as He continued to gaze at the sky and the surrounding environment, it began to change both in colour and in brightness (luminosity). This is even though there were no lights in the area where the changes were seen. He called the spiritual research team to the balcony to find out whether they too could observe what He was seeing. After spending some time to get their eyes accustomed to the darkness, the seekers began the experiment. His Holiness Dr Athavale once again focused His gaze on the environment in front of the Ashram while the seekers from the spiritual research team observed the environment in the direction He was looking. The seekers from the spiritual research team were all able to see the changes. They observed that not only were there colour changes in the surrounding environment but that the area in the distance towards the hills became brighter. The trees on the horizon could be seen more clearly. The sky too became brighter. The spiritual research team conducted an experiment to document this phenomenon.

To know more about the experiment conducted along with pictures please read the below article.

The three Suble Basic Components

The subtle basic Sattva (Spiritually pure) component is the most subtle or intangible of the three subtle basic components. It is the component nearest to divinity. Its predominance in a person is characterised by happiness, contentment, virtues like patience, perseverance, ability to forgive, spiritual yearning etc.

The subtle basic Tama (Spiritually impure) component is the basest of the three. Its predominance in a person is reflected by laziness, greed, attachment to worldly matters etc.

The subtle basic Raja (Spiritually active) component provides fuel to the other two, i.e. brings about the action. So depending on whether a person is predominantly sāttvik or tāmasik the subtle basic Raja component will bring about actions pertaining to Sattva or Tama.

Learn more about how the three subtle components manifest in creation at:

Advice from an Ayurvedic doctor - Alternatives for soap for maintaining healthy skin

Having a daily bath is very important to keep our bodies clean and hygienic and also to freshen our mind. Many of us use soap as a cleaning agent to remove oil and dirt particles from the skin and wash away any germs and bacteria. Same is the case with commercial shampoo for our hair.

However, for most of the people having sensitive skin, it is observed that applying soap while bathing, leads to dryness of skin. Commercial soap contains synthetic substances which are very harsh on the skin.

As an alternative to soap, it is recommended to use Fragrant herbal powder (also called “utne”) to prevent dry skin. Two spoons of “utne” is enough for one bath. Similarly, we can also use Fuller’s earth, also known as “Multani clay” as another substitute for soap.

If some of us still feel it is convenient to use soap to remove oiliness from the skin while bathing, it is recommended not to rub the body by applying excessive soap. It is better to leave some oiliness on the skin, as it can help to keep the skin soft and not let it become dry.
-Dr. Paradkar, Maharshi University of Spirituality.

Positive and negative energies are present everywhere in the universe. An earnest seeker is always seeking positive energy and understands the importance. One of the ways to keep away negative energies is to use self-healing methods. Through spiritual research & grace of the divine, SSRF has found that a simple cardboard box can be used for healing. It was found that boxes which contains nothing, void or empty are related to Absolute Ether Principle. Out of all the Absolute Cosmic Principles, the Absolute Ether Principle is the subtlest and the most powerful.

To use box healing, you will need an empty cardboard box. The material of the box in case of hollow boxes is not of much importance. For ease of use, take empty carton boxes. You may use 1 to as many required. Place them around you with 6 to 12 inches away from yourself. Sit and chant in front of the boxes when the distress is heavy. You may also place the boxes around you while sleeping, working or any other activity. Box healing can be used when you are affected most by Lethargy, Reduction in promptness, Inability to think, Excessive thoughts especially when they are negative in nature, Anger or any other extreme emotion, Stress or any form of physical illness.

Spiritual emotion protects us from negative energies

Spiritual emotion is a state of communion with God, and as such when a seeker is immersed in it, negative energies find it difficult or impossible to trouble the seeker.
One of the easiest ways to protect ourselves through the day is by attempting to establish communion with God during our worldly activities. By doing so, our worldly life becomes spiritual practice, we make spiritual growth, love and gratitude towards God increases and we are protected from the attacks of negative energies.

Some ways to begin efforts towards spiritual emotion are:

1.) Prayer before daily activities (cooking, brushing teeth, cleaning, driving, etc.)
2.) Chanting God's Name during activities
3.) Expressing gratitude after every activity
Spiritual emotion helps us to grow spiritually and protects us from spiritual harm.

Anthony (age 40) is a computer engineer from Europe. In this case study Anthony describes how his addiction to marijuana of seven years disappeared when he started the spiritual practice of chanting.

He started smoking marijuana when he was 29 years old and the reason was curiosity. After that, little by little smoking ‘pot’ (marijuana) became a regular weekly habit as it brought short-term mental relief. After some time, the ‘positive’ aspects of pot subsided, but he continued smoking as it was popular with the social group of people he was hanging out with at that time. Generally after smoking it, he would have to use all his energy and concentration to minimise the negative side effects like tiredness, sleepiness, lack of enthusiasm, lethargy etc. He tried to stop doing it several times, but after progressively shorter periods of time and inner battles he would end up smoking again. As the habit was developing, he felt as if something was pushing him towards doing it.

Then he came in contact with the Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF). In the year 2000, he began the spiritual practice of chanting regularly. He started to chant the Name of God according to the religion of birth, along with this he also chanted the spiritual protection chant of ‘Shri Gurudev Datta’ for 4 hours a day to take care of any ancestral problems.

Gradually he noticed that the urge to smoke marijuana started declining exponentially. After 1 month it dropped by 50%. After 6 months, it dropped by 80% and after one year it went away entirely. The desire for smoking pot just became weaker and weaker and finally disappeared with the increase of spiritual practice.

Do I Need Spiritual Healing?

To maintain good health we need to eat a balanced diet. However when we are ill, we need supplementary diet over and above the normal diet that will assist us in getting back on track. For example, when we have common cold we take vitamin C supplements. Likewise spiritual research has revealed that the root cause of many worldly obstacles in our life are spiritual in nature. So while making worldly efforts, one should compliment them with spiritual healing remedies.

Dear +Siva Upadhyaula​​​​, Welcome to SSRF :) We are glad to know that :)  Since we accumulate black energy covering around us daily due to high raja-tama everywhere around us & to remove it, you could try doing salt water healing remedy which is a simple, yet effective spiritual healing remedy. It only takes 15mins :) Please do try & share how you feel :) Kind regards, SSRF G+ team

Obstacles, preconceived notions, anger, reactions, self-image, expectations and saving prestige, etc. surface due to negative thoughts.

There is only one remedy for tension and that is looking at every event, incident and thought from a positive angle.

The benefits of keeping a positive attitude:
-Whatever may be the situations to face, the mind starts looking for solutions by accepting them.
-Acceptance of everything enhances prayers and surrender, due to which the mind remains blissful.
-When a positive mind is being consistently in acceptance mode, then there is no chance for reactions, anger and preconceived notions. When the mind is in this state, it can study the nature of another person and can easily get along with him or her.
-There is no feeling of doership in a positive mind. The spiritual emotion that, ‘Everything happens due to God’s grace’ goes on increasing day by day and as a result every event is offered at God’s Feet.

However difficult a situation may be, God only helps us by giving us the thoughts to come out of it if we remain positive.
