Examples of questions addressed: Why gullible Indians allow themselves to be manipulated by Western constructs. Is the current Indian education system creating more Jaichands? How to fight issues that are wrongly conflated? How do we communicate with outsiders if we use Sanskrit internally? Why are Western institutions attacking our leadership? Do Hindus lack Shatrubodh (knowledge of enemy) and Swayambodh (knowledge of self)? Why has Ravana been portrayed as an evil figure, given how intelligent he was? Why can't we counter people like professor Sugata Bose of Harvard? How to embed our framework in AI tools like Chat GPT? What are the dangers of bringing foreign universities into India. How to bring Indian thought back into education? Will the world be controlled by Oligarchs?

Your Day Off @Hairdustry; A Podcast about the Hair Industry!
@hairdustry presents Your Day Off Podcast- What would you ask if given a chance to sit down with these two legends? Well, that's what we did; listen to Michael and Britt answer Q&A from our followings. Britt Seva @brittseva
The intention of SOUL MEDICINE is to offer you, the listener, ways to reconnect to your soul. When I started this practice of yoga, my very first yoga training required us to perform (8) hours of SEVA to graduate. This was the single most powerful thing Beth Shaw could have instilled into my practice. Always coming from a place of service. Remembering that what we DO in this life is a gift; especially if we are afforded the opportunity to practice and share healing gifts. This topic gets lost in our capitalistic society. There's an unhealthy striving for more to no end. But from where I'm standing, and like a lot of other individuals I have the honor to work with, it's all that's there is … this idea of SEVA. This is by far one of my favorite quotes from the Yoga Sutras: Translated by Swami Satchidananda: You have all these things to equip yourself to serve others. You must have a bed to rest in to feel refreshed in the morning to go out to serve others. You must eat to have enough energy to serve others. So, you do everything with the idea that you are preparing yourself to serve others. So, even your Yogic meditation becomes a selfless action. That is what is meant by “Even with God do not have attachment”. This non-attachment alone is enough to change your entire life into a joyful one. My humble belief is that SEVA can be described as moving beyond your own ego and supporting the Universe around you through selfless action and spiritual activism. SEVA refers to selfless service for altruistic purposes on behalf of, and for the betterment of a community. SEVA is a means to promote humility and demote egoism. It‘s moving fearlessly beyond your prior expectations and self-imposed limitations and elevating human consciousness through selfless service. This is why we “work” and “do” what we do. This podcast was inspired by my mentor, teacher, colleague, and friend, BrahmanKyrie, founder of Brahman Project Foundation Inc. and Freedom on the Inside. She asked me to do a breathwork and sound healing session in partnership with her program and I couldn't be more excited about it! Freedom on the Inside Project is a set of spiritual teachings and conscious programming that is offered at Donovan State Prison, one of California's maximum-security prisons. They provide spiritual and rehabilitative tools that assist each individual in overcoming trauma, addiction and other emotional difficulties that would otherwise prevent them from living the life they were born to live. These individuals regularly attend weekly meditation classes, are instrumental in organizing conscious events and are about to graduate as facilitators where they will be teaching what they have learnt in class. Serving our community is of deep value; it's driven my work for years. I'm posting this podcast about SEVA so you re-member why you are here and ask those deeply valuable questions about your life, who you “are”, and what you are truly offering to this world. Are you fulfilled? If not … look to see where you are taking instead of giving. Sometimes we feel like we cannot give another ounce; but that is when we forget how Divinely supported, we truly are. I'm also asking that you give to the GoFundMe for our project. We need mats, blocks, blankets, and eye coverings for this project, and we would love your help. I'll provide the link here … every little bit helps. Thank you for listening and thank you for supporting. Om Shanti.

“Think of the breath as a vehicle rather than a jackhammer. Often students use the breath too strongly... You will not be using the breath to cut the rock open. Instead, the breath is a vehicle that you are riding on, and you are consciously feeling it move through the chakras, or at least to experience where they are. For example, when you take a breath in, you can feel the heart chakra. You do not try to tear and rip it open with willfulness. The breath is like a massage, and as you exhale you surrender all the negativity that gets kicked up. When students are able to be open and simple with their breath, they realize that watching the breath is not the same as trying to control it. The pranayama within the breath is simply flowing with the breath.”We see at the beginning of the quote that there is a tendency in all of us to use the breath too strongly, like a jackhammer attempting to simply cut our resistance in half with a deep breath. Instead, we are taught to put our conscious energy and will into relaxing enough to feel the breath flowing within us— and when we do that our tension falls away, revealing a lighter state that is already within us. The practice of pranayama, or a breath based meditation, can sometimes be challenging to access when we are experiencing a strong tension, as Anju referred to last week in her presentation. Trying to go right from a tough day into your meditation practice can sometimes not feel productive—like trying to climb a ten foot wall— but should remember that the yogic tradition has given us a stair case to walk up whenever we need it. From the general arc of the Uppays themselves, to the Koshas, to Patanjali's 8 limbs of yoga, and so on— everywhere we look we see a step by step approach to getting our mechanism moving from the physical to the subtle and beyond. Learning to surrender at the physical level through hatha yoga and Seva guide us to work with more surrender at the level of the breath, which also guides us to profound stillness of the mind and opening of the heart. Step by step is how we arrive at our destination in the yogic tradition, and the first step is learning how to work with surrender at the level of the physical body. Similar to the practice of pranayama, which begins by shaping the breath, Hatha yoga begins by shaping the body. But like pranayama, the shapes are not the goal— the shapes exist to generate inner sensation and awareness. As Shiva says in the introduction to the Vijnana bhairava, the flame is there to put the kettle on it, the techniques are there to heat and grow our inner awareness. This is crucial both for using our asana practice to grow, but also avoiding injury. Because without inner awareness, the postures are just exercise, or worse injurious— as injuries such as hamstring tendonitis and hip labral impingements in the overly physical yoga community have shown us. As the Shiva Sutras teach, the body, mind and senses can be the source of our growth— or they can be the very things that bind and limit us, depending on the fullness of our awareness. Hatha yoga helps us surrender tightness in our body in the same way a mantra helps us surrender tightness in our mind. Each posture is like a mantra, in that you put your awareness into it, feeling it effect you, and you keep coming back to it as the mind wanders. The tightness we feel in our bodies are what we work with— we don't push the tightness away, or become obsessed with changing it, we simply apply our awareness to the posture and our breath and allow the contracted states to fall away. Just like Babaji said about the breath— controlling it is not the same as watching it and flowing with it. We aren't here to control our body with hatha yoga, we are here to get in the flow of our body, to move more naturally, and this is accomplished with the tools of the asanas and the elixir of inner awareness. The experience of surrender we seek in our postures, as Patanjali taught it, is a feeling of effortless effort, of perseverance without tension. In this way, he wrote, the practitioner transcends the duality of physical existence, and experiences the infinite. This is how yoga guides us towards a more surrendered experience of our breath, mind and heart— one step at a time.
