Special Column — Yoga


Yogi Ashwini          

Over the yugas, this creation has survived innumerable catastrophes, blows of destruction, evil influences with the blessings and intervention of Divine forces. Satyug, Treta yug and Dwapar yug witnessed descent of Divinity each time when asuric forces reached the pinnacle of evil in forms of avatar or Divine incarnation to save the creation from annihilation.

Now as we have reached kaliyug, an era as predicted by Rishi Markandeya and Rishi Vyas “kalyug key antinm bhaag mein sab log ‘aham brahm asmi’ kehkar mathyvaad karengey aur koi unki ninda nahin karega. Dasoon dishaon mein ghoom kar chori karengey....apney ko pandit maaney waley log satya ka gala ghotengay. Satya ki haani hone par aayu thodi reh jayegi, aayu ki kam key kaaran weh purn vidya ka uparjan nahin kar sakengey...vidyaheen hone se agyani manushyon ko lobh daba lega...lobh ke vashibhoot huvey manushya kamnaaon mein aasakt ho kar ek doosrey key pran leney ki ghaat mein lagey rahengey”.

We ourselves are witnessing what was predicted by rishis of yesteryears so many thousand years back. Custodians of dharma have now reached the heights of commercialisation and selling the pious sciences of yoga and Vedas, and are proud to call themselves businessmen worth thousands of crores. Obviously to maximise profits in any business, quality has to be compromised upon, resulting in distortions and bringing out absolutely new theories which have nowhere been known or seen in ancient times. Once again as predicted by the rishis there is also a sharp decline in the desi cow population.

This diversion and distortion of facts thus marks the beginning of the end of this yuga. Descent of a new avatar is not just inevitable but also much awaited. As predicted, tenth and the final time Lord Vishnu will take form of Kalki but only with invocations by means of prayers and havans. As followers of dharma, the righteous way of living, all the positive souls of this yug need to get together and pray to the Divine to descend as an avatar to remove vices from dharma and save the yug from annihilation. For this time the asur is not through an invasion, but amongst us eating on our culture and eroding dharma
