Anthappan2013-08-03 20:41:16 NewsAll of us dwell on the brink of the infinite ocean of life's creative power. We carry it within us: supreme strength, the fullness of wisdom, and unquenchable joy; but it is deeply hidden. What if we could bring it to light and draw from it unceasingly? Hinduism's discoveries for actualizing the human potential come under the heading of yoga, a word that derives from the same root as the English word 'yoke' and carries connotations of uniting (yoking together), and placing under the discipline (as in "take my yoke upon you"). Yoga is a method of training designed to lead to integration or union. It includes physical exercise, but its ultimate goal is union with God. The spiritual trails that Hindus have blazed toward this goal are four.
1.The way to God through Knowledge (njaana yoga)
2.The way to God through love (bhakthi yoga)
3. The way to God through work (Karama yoga)
4. The way to God through psycho-physical exercise (raja yoga)
For me these are four amazing contribution made by Hinduism. And if we look at all religion they all use either one of these path to attain the God they are searching. Unfortunately some people know how to sell this in the Global Market and make money. And now the powerful God Money speaks everywhere.

This is an eye opener; a
great product of a great man Sri. Vasudev . He has attained great respect for his great tolerance and simplicity and
broadmindedness to see all above race and religion as human beings. With great
respect to him and his thoughts.I like
to add a few humble thoughts of mine.
Hinduism is very widely misunderstood and interpreted. There are many
reasons to blame. Many deeds of the religious leaders added to the flame
and is still spreading towering infernos. This is true with many and almost all
religious leaders. Hinduism is not an exception.
The article reflects very creative thoughts of a great personality. Those who
k In many positive & fundamental aspects of religion, Hinduism
had and has the superiorityabove all
religions of the world. Hinduism is broad and wide it paved the paths for
atheism, theism and no theism; nothingness and fullness; one god to many gods.
unfortunately many moderns see Hinduism as a temple religion.
Temple religion is only a small fraction of one of the many branches of
Hinduism. Jainism and Buddhism are also other branches of Hinduism. In fact
present day Christian churches in the Sub continent has borrowed and adopted
many elements of Hinduism. early Christian thoughts in the Mediterranean
regions called ''Jesus movements'' were highly influenced by Indian thoughts.
So it is apt to call Hinduism as Indian thoughts. because the word Hinduism
quickly direct one to temple religion.
In the beginning Indian thoughts were closely connected and originated from
nature and its forces like many other religions of the world. harmony was the
creed and gods were part and parcel of human life. Evolution in thought was the
ruling and determining force. human thoughts changed and went through the
process of evolution. most of the time it was positive and progressive. Men
created gods as per their imagination and according to their need. Any
religion, thought and god which refused to evolve as per the need of the time
The color of the human skin was and is a very powerful factor in the evolution
of religious and moral thoughts. Aryans had light colored skin than the dark or
brown native Indians. Aryan thoughts and culture dominated the dark skinned
man's thoughts. Evolution dominated by the color of the skin turned out to be a
revolution in religious thoughts. Ages reaped its fruits but the seeds were
sworn in human blood.
The notorious caste system in its origin was different. The ancients were smart
& thoughtful enough to realize a modern psychological fact that an
Individualis a product of Heredity and
Environment. I= H+E. An individual was analyzed & categorized according to
his character and personality. It was not hereditary in the beginning.
Unfortunately it evolved into as mere birth in a caste determined his social
This is a small example. Those who want to learn what Hinduism is, they should
separate temple practice from Indian thoughts. It is a vast sea of
thoughts. Many of the religious thoughts of the world is obligated and related
to Indian thoughts. The great epics are not simply stories of the
"funny" deeds of the gods. It is a simplified version of the radiance
of god thoughts. And even with all these thousands of stories about gods;
Indian thought admits humbly that a human is not capable to realize the
eminence and attributes of god. That is the same conclusion reached by great
thinkers of the world.
So Study Hinduism or Indian thoughts. It is inspiring and lead one to
higher levels of life. Seek and learn without any pre set preferences. The
learned will see all humans as one. The ignorant and unwilling to learn will
keep on shedding human blood.

It is not a public matter and do not drag it to a public show to glorify few. John's family has the resources to seek legal help. Public+ so called leadres of malayalees should not exploit the situation. Also pls. don't mislead and spread false stories that Annad was saved by some of you. None of you has anything to boast about it. Anad and his family was exposed to more shame and notorious publicity by some of you.

VINOD ANDREWS2013-08-03 03:12:38 NewsThe design belongs to Ajay Panicker , a friend of mine and well known interior designer. They had made him work on the design and he hasn't been paid a single rupee for the same till date. They took the design and refused to pay him. And, I know this fact personally. To add salt to the wound, they screwed up his design with such sub standard execution. I have seen the actual design myself too. No creative person deserves to be treated this way.
Shameful act by KSBC.
