D.A.Joseph, the founder of this non-profit movement is struggling hard to spread Vedic ideas to every nook and corner in person Rishi Dharma realizes that to tolerate such an indifferent attitude of the changing society towards our ancient culture is unforgivable. So the main motto of 'Rishi Dharma Foundation' is to bring about renaissance of the forgotton Indian values among the present and forthcoming society. D.A.Joseph is a scholar in Hindu Philosophy and the study of world religions he has spent more than three decades in the propagation of Sanathana Dharma. “RISHI DHARMA”- An organisation for oriental thinking founded by D.A.Joseph. This association (non profit) is meant for the awakening of spiritual consciousness among Youths. He has been on his lecture tour to places where his service is needed.

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! In this segment we cover synastry, or finding compatibility, in a birth chart. I've done several segments on this topic before - but thought it could be helpful to create a simple segment to support new learners. Ever wonder which signs or planetary placements might be the most suitable for you? This simple guide lays the ground rules of the basics to watch for in the charts of others! Of course, this is NOT intended to be relationship advice! I share the cautionary tale to not use astrology ONLY to assess compatibility - especially when we are newer to astrology! It is recommended to seek out the assistance of a professional astrologer when assessing actual compatibility with a partner and a therapist or counselor when seeking relationship support.

Transcription:00:02Welcome to changing the rules, a weekly podcast about people who are living their best lives, and advice on how you can achieve that too. Join us with your lively host, Ray Lowe, better known as the luckiest guy in the world.Ray Loewe00:17Hello, everybody, and welcome to our podcast, changing the rules. We're here at our brand new studios in Willow Street. We're here with our engineer, Luke Cagn0, who makes everything work for us. And thank you, Luke, for being here. And we're here with a great guest today. But I want to give you a little background before we start on changing the rules. You know, throughout our lives we're given rule after rule after rule. It started with our parents, it went to the church and went to the schools and went to our jobs. And everybody's got rules that they throw at us. And some of them are pretty good rules, and we want to keep them and some of them become irrelevant over time. But we have this body of rules that we have to get through. And I think it was Steve Jobs that said, when you're living your life by other people's rules, you're not living your own life. So we encourage you to go through the rules and pick the ones that are really pertinent to you. And we have today one of the luckiest people in the world that we're interviewing, and we define the luckiest people in the world as those people who take control of their own lives, design them to their own specs, and then live them under their own terms. And Dr. John Neely is with us today. And John is a medical doctor. He started his career as a pediatric oncologist. And you're gonna have to define that for us John and welcome to the world of podcasting.Dr. John Neely01:45Great, thanks so much glad to be here. So you want to know about pediatric oncologist? Well, when I went to medical school, actually, which was up in Hershey, you know, when you go to medical school, you're exposed to so many different things. And I for a while thought about surgery, I liked orthopedic surgery quite a bit. But what really caught my eye was taking care of children. And when I realized that I wanted to become a pediatrician. And I was influenced by some of the patients that I saw who were seriously ill at the time. And when I did my residency out in Minnesota, it was one of the bastions of teaching for pediatric oncology. And some of the very first patients that I saw there were patients that had serious oncologic issues. But it just touched my heart when I saw these patients, and I realized, for me, I could do general pediatrics, it's enjoyable enough, but I wanted to do something really challenging. And back in the day, I was encouraged because we were curing about 50% of children with cancer, which meant, of course, 50% were dying. So it was still a somewhat challenging and can be very depressing. But now we're up to about 85 to 90% cure rate. Oh, wow. So we now can tell most families, your child has something serious, we have a game plan for how to take care of it. And the odds are really high that they're going to be cured.Ray Loewe03:15All right. Now you told me while we're prepping for this, about an experience that you had walking down the street one of these days, why don't you tell us about that? Because that puts it all in perspective, I think?Dr. John Neely03:27Well, you know, I think one of the advantages for me of staying in Hershey to throughout most of my oncology career was I took care of a lot of patients and, and I didn't move away. So the odds of my running into them, and some of them I've are close friends with were pretty high. So here I was two years. Well, just before COVID I was at the Fulton Theatre. And they were doing the one of my favorite Christmas plays about the Red Ryder BB gun. And you know, and all of that.Ray Loewe03:57Cleveland, Ohio, right, yeah.Dr. John Neely03:59And it was intermission. And suddenly this guy comes up to me, who has I think two or three children in tow young kids. And he was probably about 40 at the time. And he comes in introduces himself. And of course, I didn't recognize him because I hadn't seen him since he was about 12. And, but I knew right away who he was. And I had taken care of him with leukemia. And not only was he cured of this, but he you know, we think about can you ever have children after therapy and all that? Well, he's living a normal, productive life has at least three kids of his own. And he just came up and said, You know, I saw you over there. You haven't changed as much as I've changed, and he wanted to say hi and thank me.Ray Loewe04:45Wow, what a rewarding career. So so it was all worthwhile. But you haven't stayed there have youDr. John Neely04:51No, and to get to kind of your thoughts about what do you do with rules? I remember because I was the chief of the division of pediatric oncology and a colleague in surgery came up to me at a meeting and he said, What what's your plan for, for advancing and I said, you know, I want to develop this program to the point that it has grown beyond my capabilities. Because I'm very good at patient care and, and some community things. But an area that needed to be spiffed up was research. And I said I want to work the division to the point where it needs somebody beyond what I can do. And that's exactly what happened, I became, I knew that somebody else needed to take over and I was getting very interested in other parts of medicine and leadership. And I made a decision to step down from the Division Chiefship, I still saw some patients, but I started to focus on other areas of medicine.Ray Loewe05:51Okay, so what are they? How did you ever divert your career? And then one of the things that is important as you go through this is that again, I mean, you exude luckiness. You're our definition of the luckiest people in the world over here. Because you, you follow what's fascinating and motivating to you and you make things happen. So what are these areas? How did you find them? And where are you?Dr. John Neely06:17Well, you know, it's an it's kind of like a pioneering spirit. Because I think one of the rules that I've had to struggle with is, because I was always told as a child, you can't fail, you have to get, you have to get straight A's, you have to do this and that. And I've set myself up in careers where there was a high likelihood of failing, because either it was something so innovative, that it wasn't the time wasn't quite ripe for it, or I grew something beyond my capability. So I wanted to move on. So it's been very difficult to say, Hey, I failed, that was a success. You know, that's an interesting thing to look at.Ray Loewe06:55Yes, it is, you know, and that's one of the things that I've learned over life, too, is that if you don't push yourself enough to fail, you're not learning. And I have two different kinds of days. I either have a great day, or I have a learning day, John. Okay.Dr. John Neely07:10That's the way I'm with golf to by the way. That's an impossible task. Yes. So I've kind of done two things since then I, you know, the way people advance in my career is typically they move to a new institution, and then they do the same thing again, you know, they may advance in their academic standing. But, you know, my opportunity would have been to say, I've done pediatric oncology here, now, I'm going to go do it at a different institution, or perhaps become a department chair, which is a different skill set. What I did differently was I decided to stay in the same institution, but to switch a career within that. So I got very interested in some of the things in medicine that I found to be short-sighted because we are trained incredibly well to take care of acute illness. So if you have a heart attack, or if you are in an auto accident, our health care system is the place to be it's the best in the world. But if you are struggling with a family history of heart disease, or diabetes, or there's a tendency to autoimmune diseases, we don't do a lot about the preventative aspects or looking at the whole body as to how they're going to respond. Instead, we throw pills at it. And that's just the nature of how we're trained. It's the nature of how we're reimbursed. So I've spent a lot of time trying to understand holistically how people can bring their life back into balance by having their different systems in their body optimized for function. And then, because my goal is people should, and we always talk about life expectancy as well, I am looking for what's called a health expectancy, I want somebody to live in a healthy, active, meaningful way to the very end of their life. And then they have a relatively short period of time where they may fail. But issues such as cognitive decline, or chronic heart disease, or chronic lung disease, are things that we need to spend more time trying to prevent.Ray Loewe09:16Okay, so where are we with this? What are we doing as a country? And what are you doing specifically?Dr. John Neely09:23Well, I've joined several different groups I've learned. I've done some certifications in what's called integrative medicine, some of which is very helpful, and some of which is not so well proven. And one of my goals is to help guide patients to these are things you can do that might really help and these are some things that you should steer clear of. So I've done that and then I've focused on a specific area of integrative medicine that's got a stupid name, but I can't figure in another name. It's called functional medicine. And, but the gist of it is instead of looking at systems like we look at in medicine, we you know, if you go to the doctor, they always do this review of systems. How are your eyes? Our your lymph glands? How's your heart? You know, and all of that the systems and functional medicine are? How do you take in the most nutritious food and digest and absorb it? What are the rules for what you should be eating and how you should absorb it and how you should protect your gut is an important part for nowadays is how do you feed and nourish your immune system so that when you are hit with something like COVID, you have the best possible chance of fighting that off. And then another area that is important is the environment. What are we doing with environmental chemicals and toxins and all that, that we have to detoxify?Ray Loewe10:51So where are we with that? And what kind of support do you have to do this kind of stuff?Dr. John Neely10:56Well, this is the uphill fight in a way because many of these things are looked at in medicine as Yeah, we know that's important. But we don't have time for that we don't have we're not trained for that. And so I've spent a lot of time and I still do teaching fellow faculty members, fellow doctors about some of the principles of holistic care as it fits into standard western medicine. Now I have some interest in things like traditional Chinese medicine, or Indian or Vedic medicine, I have work some working knowledge of it, but I am not a practitioner of those. But I can help people understand when they're approached with, with some questions about that. I deal a lot with the Amish, for example, who are wonderful people, they are very common sense. And they but they also are interested in natural approaches to things. So a lot of my work with them is saying, we have some things in standard western medicine that would help you but I want to help you with natural medicines that could help things go better for you and help you boost your immune system so we can work together and integrate care, you're going to be my new doctor here John. Well, that you know, that's why we were talking that a goal. Yeah, it's been, wouldn't it be interesting to do some podcasting on these types of topics or even lectures, so, and I'm a teacher at heart, okay, I you know, I'm in an academic medical center, I still love to teach. I'm doing some coursework here at Willow Valley. And that's,Ray Loewe12:31well, let's make a commitment to do that. But I want to probe into something else because you also talked a little bit about communication, and how to improve things. And I know you're doing some stuff here in terms of teaching people how to communicate better. So talk to me about where you're going there. Dr. John Neely12:47Well, that went back. And two ways with my medical career. One was, there's research out there that shows that the time between you go into a doctor's office, and they interrupt you, and don't listen is around seven seconds. So nobody ever has a chance to tell their story, their own medical story. And teaching doctors how to just sit back and listen and have the time to listen is so important. And the number of times in my holistic practice where I have somebody come in and start and I'm sitting there and starting to tell their story. And about five minutes into it, they cry. And they say you're the first person that has ever listened to me. So a lot of this is how do you practice listening? Now from the difficult conversation standpoint, that grew out of some of my teaching of leadership, what is the what are the principles of a sound conversation? What's the difference between a discussion, which by the way, rhymes with the same root word is percussion and concussion. So you can see that a discussion tends to be a back and forth, kind of a fight going on, like percussion or concussion, as opposed to dialogue, which in Greece means to flow through. So teaching how to listen and how to balance a conversation so that new ideas can flow through the group rather than just having a battle back and forth are the principles that I'm trying to teach.Ray Loewe14:20Okay, so here you are, you're in, I'm gonna say, a new phase of your career. I mean, you're phasing out of the oncology you'll never phase out of it. But you'll do less and less. And you've got the interest in preventative medicine, general health care, how do we take better care of ourselves, and this concept of dialogue, so where are we going with all this?Dr. John Neely14:47Well, you mean me personally. Ray Loewe14:48Yeah, we're you gonna take this?Dr. John Neely14:50Well, I do see that at some point, I will fade out I would say, I call it a glide path out of my career, although I still enjoy seeing my colleagues and seeing some patients. But that's becoming less and less of an issue for me, and I just see myself working with some of these other principles. Now, again, I am not so inclined at this point in time to spend day after day seeing patients, because I think might be, I would be better, my talents would be better served in some kind of a lecture type series, we're going to be perfect for broadcasting in some way or another. And then doing some small teaching, the idea of having good conversations, I'm currently doing it with a group of about 21 people here. I would love to see this applied to virtually anybody on the campus, including team members and administration so that we can all learn to converse together and learn together.Ray Loewe15:52So I'm going to change your name from Dr. John to Professor John over here. OkayDr. John Neely15:56You can call me the professor like Gilligan's Island.Ray Loewe15:59Yeah, you know, unfortunately, we're at the end of our time, and we're going to have to do a repeat on this because I think any one of these topics we could spend a whole session on. And I really am kind of interested in this. How do you take better care of yourself? Overall, as opposed to just fighting the battle of here's a symptom, let's get rid of the symptoms. And so let's make a commitment to do that somewhere along the line. And, you know, I want to thank you so much for being here. I think your career is a model for people. And I think it's an important model. You know, here you are you had your career, and most people stay in that kind of a career forever. I mean, after all, you're a pediatric. I'm going to stumble over my pediatric oncologist over here. But you're not satisfied with that. And you're moving on to new things. And you're still a young man. And as we I bet in another 20 years, you're still going to be working on this stuff. To the degree I can, I will be cool. So thanks. Excuse me here. Thanks, everybody, for listening. We've been with John Neely and Luke why don't you sign us off and we'll see you all here next week. Great.17:11Thank you for listening to changing the rules. Join us next week for more conversation, our special guest and to hear more from the luckiest guy in the world.

There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root. - Henry David Thoreau / #1 purpose – to systematically propagate spiritual knowledge to society at large… in order to check the imbalance of values in life, & to achieve real unity & peace / spiritual knowledge dissipates fear and thus conflict / perceiving the oneness and commonality on the spiritual level / according to one's association with the material qualities, one develops a certain type of character / the broadness of the Vedic presentation SB 4.18.22
The mission of Lord Buddha was to save people from the abominable activity of animal killing and to save the poor animals from being unnecessarily killed. When pāṣaṇḍīs were cheating by killing animals on the plea of sacrificing them in Vedic yajñas, the Lord said, “If the Vedic injunctions allow animal killing, I do not accept the Vedic principles.” Thus he actually saved people who acted according to Vedic principles. One should therefore surrender to Lord Buddha so that he can help one avoid misusing the injunctions of the Vedas.
“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind” Henry David Thoreau / the mind's fluctuations are stilled by practice and dispassion / we've got rājasic & tāmasic saṁskāras, distracting memories & tendencies inherited from time immemorial / how practice becomes firmly established / through regulation comes freedom / re-establishing the cosmic order / Vedic knowledge to purify words, mind and hearing SB 4.18.8-18
What is an eco-community? Is it for the like-minded and those who have similar goals? To serve a true spirit of community, it must be inclusive, we must learn to embrace those with different values, spiritual beliefs, and life goals. A true eco -community is one where we reach out to diverse interests and at the same time, share respect and kindness with each other. Citing the Panchayat practice of ancient Vedic tradition ~ we see how each village was responsible through its Panchayat, or committee of five elders, for maintaining the home ground in the forests within its own locality. A community is a safe non-judgmental space where the despairing, the disgruntled, the pure spirited, the disparaged, the disabled, the affluent, the poor, the ambitious, the creative, all co-exist in harmony with each other. In the Panchayat system, no village was complete without its corresponding mature woodlands, and animal husbandry. In the spirit of community, we never encroach or use more space than necessary. Everyone shares in the tending of groves for providing fruits, flowers, timber products, and shelter for grazing cows.Listen In~ Support the show

It's Q&A time again and this one has something for everyone.The first question for Thom is about the relationship between Catholicism and the Vedic Worldview. Whether you are Catholic or not, Thom's answer will be of interest as he affirms the compatibility of the Vedic worldview, not just with Christianity, but with religion in general.And if you have trouble distinguishing between negative thinking and intuitive insights, Thom's answer to the second question in this episode will help you with this dilemma. You'll be pleased to know the answer is pretty straight forward.And last but not least, a situation that we'll all face more than once in our lifetime, how to help someone who is nearing the end of their life. Thom gives us an easy choice to make, whether to be a ‘needy one' or a ‘capable one'. No points for guessing which option is more evolutionary for all concerned.Episode Highlights: [00:45] Q - Can You Elaborate on Jesus Christ and the Vedic Worldview as Compared with the Catholic View?[01:27] A - There is No Conflict Between Catholic Beliefs and Vedic Philosophy[03:06] Universal Wisdom[04:57] Catholicism Shares Much With Vedic Philosophy[06:33] There is No Religious Requirement to Practice Vedic Meditation[07:45] Meditation is an Aid to Christian Growth[09:38] Q - How Can You Distinguish a Negative Thought From the One That is Trying to Tell You Something?[09:57] A - Vedic Mediation Enhances Meditators' Awareness[11:45] Moving Frictionlessly and Effortlessly From One Place to the Next[13:27] Red Lights and Green Lights[14:17] Negative Thoughts vs Feelings[16:08] Q - How Can We Help Those Who Are Nearing the End of Their Lives?[16:44] A - Understand How a Dying Person Feels[18:20] Unfinished Business[20:00] Mistakes People Make With the Dying[21:43] Conscious Protectors[23:41] Agenda Free[25:14] The Needy Ones and the Capable OnesUseful Linksinfo@thomknoles.com https://thomknoles.com/https://www.instagram.com/thethomknoles/https://www.facebook.com/thethomknoleshttps://www.youtube.com/c/thomknoles https://thomknoles.com/ask-thom-anything/
11th chapter: verses 29, 48, 54, 5529th verse: “As moths rush towards a blazing fire only to perish, so also all of us are rushing towards Your mouth only to perish.”32nd verse: “I am the mighty, all-consuming time. “To those who look upon the world as a place for sensual pleasures, the world is like a blazing fire, and they are like moths rushing towards it. But when we have a higher spiritual goal that guides our actions, then we start moving towards our true spiritual destination. Upon reaching it, we realize our immortal dimension as the Atman. We realize that the same Atman exists in all of us.Upon that highest realization, we see the presence of God within and outside the place of worship. We can spiritualize our everyday activities – our whole life becomes a spiritual sacrament.In the 41st verse of the 10th chapter, Lord Krishna says: “Wherever you find some greatness, prosperity, power or excellence – know that to be a part of My splendor.”Wherever we find a unique manifestation that is sublime and beautiful, it is an expression of the divine reality. In whatever profession one may be, if that person reaches a level of transcendental excellence – that perfection is a spark of the divinity within him. When the scholarship of a scholar is combined with sattvic nature such as humility, or the power of a person is combined with wisdom and maturity – then it becomes an expression of the divine.This divinity is immanent within us. We can manifest this divinity by practicing karma yoga, bhakti yoga or other yogas. When we do our actions with a sense of sanctity and sacredness and with an unselfish attitude, then it becomes a spiritual action. The line of demarcation between secular and spiritual vanishes.48th verse: “The highest truth cannot be realized just by scholarship.” Theology or philosophy is not a substitute for one's own spiritual experience and realization. When we realize the presence of the divine, a transformation comes upon us. We feel inner contentment. We become broad-minded and a better human being. We see God in everything and everything in God.In the Bhagavata Purana, there is a dialogue between King Nimi and the Nava Yogis. In answer to the King's question: “Who is an ideal devotee of God?”, one of the sages gives the following answer: “The one who sees the presence of God in all beings, and who sees the presence of all beings in God. “ 55th verse: “You should do everything as offering to Me (mat-karma-kṛit). You should consider Me as the supreme goal in life (mat-paramaḥ). You should be devoted to Me (mat-bhaktaḥ). You should be free from obsessive attachment ( saṅga-varjitaḥ). You should look upon the whole creation as one spiritual family, without malice towards anyone (nirvairaḥ sarva-bhūteṣhu). Then you will certainly come to Me.”The attitude with which one does the action determines whether he is a spiritual action. A priest's worship may be mechanical as a duty. On the other hand, a soldier may do his duty as an act of worship. When we do our actions with a sense of sanctity, sacredness, unselfishness and without obsessive attachment to results, then it becomes an act of worship. Our journey starts with “Work and worship, evolves to “Work as worship” and culminates in “Everything is worship.” Then all secular activities are spiritualized.Prapatti is the highest state of a devotee of God. Prapatti means complete surrender and is composed of the following characteristics. (1) Always having a positive outlook in life, full of sattvic qualities such as serenity, wisdom, compassion, and broad mindedness. (2) Rejecting all the opposing qualities such as skepticism and self-doubt. (3) Strong faith that God will protect me. (4) Total self-surrender. When we surrender, we feel a huge weight has been lifted from our shoulders.Only a person who follows the principles of Satyam, Ritm and Dharma can be spiritual. He looks upon the entire creation as one spiritual family.Satyam means truth. A person will not deviate from the path of harmony if he practices truthfulness.Ritm is the central principle of inherent harmony that exists in nature.Dharma refers to the ethical and moral principles through which one practices Satyam. For example, it is immoral to pollute the earth and therefore against Dharma.Vedic mantras emphasize harmony and balance of nature. Let the earth, clouds, skies, plants, trees and the entire cosmos remain pure, undisturbed, and in perpetual peace and harmony.54th verse is the prelude to the 12th chapter. Lord Krishna says: “You can understand My true nature only by true, single minded devotion.”Thus, ends the 11th chapter of the Bhagavad Gita, which contains the essence of all scriptures.
Happy Friday and Welcome to May! This is an eventful month and we have a lot to prepare for! With transits, eclipses, and retrogrades - thank goodness we have astrology to lead the way!

In this episode Christopher and Riley welcome Phil McLemore and Ben Heaton, Bhagavad Gita enthusiasts and students of Vedic wisdom, to finish our discussion of the seminal Hindu scripture. Our hosts dive into the usefulness of the book, approaches to understanding it, and a few favorite passages.
In this hope inspiring episode, Vedic Master Acharya Shunya explains "Samsara", literally, a never-ending ocean of repeated births and deaths in a realm of impermanence, transience and loss. Samsara imposes a chronic sense of sorrow, apprehension, disappointment and anxiety. However, each of the three chief Vedic goddesses Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati, support, stabilize and liberate us from Samsara, especially when we understand what they represent and call upon them when in distress. Learn all about this relationship between Samsara and Divine Mothers Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati.

Lucia Whalen has a killer joke that combines environmental disaster with infertility, and you should know that's the sort of screaming into the abyss I encourage on This Is Your Afterlife. She tells me about her upbringing among hippies devoted to Vedic astrology, the bad mushroom trip that got her sober, and her craving for words of affirmation, even in death. Speaking of fertility, abortion is healthcare. Here is the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists' https://www.acog.org/advocacy/facts-are-important/abortion-is-healthcare (statement to that effect) I read in the show's intro.

Does “opening the mind” through Vedic Meditation create a portal or opportunity for evil or satanic influences to enter the mind?This question is relatively easy to answer. In fact, in this episode Thom doesn't even get to the second part of the question and spends a short time addressing the first part, the notion of Vedic Meditation opening the mind.While it's certainly true that Vedic meditators are usually open-minded people, this is in the sense of being broad minded rather than having an exposed or vulnerable mind.Vedic Meditation actually has the opposite effect. It dissipates stress and reduces the likelihood of suggestibility and allows one to become more aligned with the laws of Nature, rather than being susceptible to anything opposing the laws of Nature. So if you're feeling the need to build a ‘spiritual firewall' for yourself, this is the episode for you.Episode Highlights: [00:48] An Open Mind About Vedic Meditation[02:08] One Becomes What One Sees[03:34] The Impact of Vedic Meditation[05:28] Meditators Need Not Be Concerned About the Biased ViewsUseful Linksinfo@thomknoles.com https://thomknoles.com/https://www.instagram.com/thethomknoles/https://www.facebook.com/thethomknoleshttps://www.youtube.com/c/thomknoles https://thomknoles.com/ask-thom-anything/

As the Great Resignation continues unabated—current estimates are that 4.4 million Americans left their jobs in September—there's growing concern that younger professionals' embrace of hustle culture is primarily responsible for the high levels of burnout they're experiencing. Wearing 80-hour work weeks like badges of honor and staying chained to their virtual desks even during their downtime has resulted in increased stress levels, mistakes, and plain old exhaustion. Contrarily, says Uppal, knowing when to lean in and when to let go is the key to unlocking creative inspiration helping you achieving your most ambitious goals. Uppal's book is not about slowing down as an end goal, rather it's about leveraging strategic pauses to make great leaps forward.Jinny Uppal is no stranger to driving contrary and innovative thinking. Uppal's 20+ years of experience driving transformational growth by challenging existing norms in business is key to her success working with Fortune 500 telecom, ecommerce, and retail companies. As a business and tech growth strategist, board advisor and thought leader, she continues to pave innovative paths to progress and success. Most recently, she was Vice President of Strategy at a $12B North American retailer.Uppal grew up in Mumbai and is a graduate of Florida International University and Harvard Business School. She has been a practitioner of Vedic and Buddhist meditation and breathwork since 2008.

Hello everyone! In this segment we discuss the upcoming eclipse in the sidereal sign of Aries. Specifically, this eclipse will occur in the portion of the sky known as Bharani. Bharani has a connection to "bearing" and is referred to as "the star as restraint". The symbol is a yoni, or female sex organ. There is a connection to break throughs, creative downloads, and initiation. This is such a powerful time creativity or for new invention. This is also a powerful time for women or those who identify with the yoni. The conception of ideas may come easier at this time. There is still an influence of Saturn and other notable on-goings in the night sky. Listen to the full segment for more!

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! In this segment we investigate the upcoming transit of Jupiter into the sidereal sign of Pisces. Pisces is a very creative, esoteric, spiritual, and "feelings" based signs. This is a time of great spiritual awakening and awareness across the globe. However, Jupiter will also be transiting with the planet Neptune - which can create illusion, deception, and confusion. There will be a dichotomy of energy - one leading us to deeper insight and knowledge, one leading us to a space of disillusionment. It's a time to connect with philosophy, ancient wisdom, and our own intuition. In addition, we discuss the influence of Saturn and how this may impact the transit overall. Learn how this transit will influence you personally and review how it will impact the world at large. Here are the horoscopes: Aries: 14:40 Taurus: 18:25 Gemini: 21:13 Cancer: 24:37 Leo: 28:13 Virgo: 32:18 Libra: 34:42 Scorpio: 38:29 Sagittarius: 42:03 Capricorn: 44:43 Aquarius: 47:54 Pisces: 50:49 Wishing you wellness!

Join me as I interview Martha Soffer, owner of Surya Spa (an Ayurvedic spa), located in Los Angeles. Martha is a graduate of Maharishi International University and a practitioner of Ayurveda for over 30 years. Her specialty is panchakarma, an Ayurvedic detoxification protocol designed to restore radiant health. She is also the creator of a line of Ayurvedic personal care products. We explore how Martha brings Ayurveda into our modern life. Martha's goal is to help individuals tune into how Ayurveda can enhance their daily lives. “'How am I feeling today?' is the first question to ask when transitioning to an Ayurvedic lifestyle. Ayurveda can feel very foreign or inaccessible to Americans. Starting small is important. If you incorporate certain foods and align with how your body actually feels, your life will significantly improve.”Ayurveda helps us cope with modern stress. For an overstressed nervous system, Martha recommends abhyanga (self-massage with oil) every day. "Oil massage calms vata dosha, which can become aggravated by stress and anxiety.” Martha also considers meditation a critical component. Martha learned Transcendental Meditation in 1988 and has been practicing every day since. I ask Martha to describe panchakarma (detox) and how it helps the body/mind regain balance. Martha recommends panchakarma at the change of each season. “This is a time when our health is more delicate as the qualities of the previous season have accumulated in the body. Panchakarma enables the body/mind to release toxins.” Martha compares Ayurveda to an umbrella. Its spokes (the ribs of an umbrella) are akin to the many modalities that Ayurveda offers. Martha decides on the appropriate treatments based on the ancient science of pulse diagnosis. Clients can do panchakarma at Surya Spa for 7, 14 or 28 days. She recommends at least 7 days because Ayurveda identifies 7 different tissues in the physiology. Home preparation is required before the client starts panchakarma. Surya Spa's ethos is “We love to heal.” "We know that love and attention accelerate healing. In panchakarma, there is an emotional component. Emotions are stored in the liver and when they start to release, anger or sadness can result. Letting go of these emotions will also take diseases away. Emotions are carried in the body's tissues. Old traumas reside in the body. Panchakarma enables an emotional as well as physical release.”Other modalities (like spokes or ribs of an umbrella) of Ayurveda include: yoga, jyotish (Vedic astrology), vastu (Vedic architecture), aromatherapy, and Gandharva Veda (coherent flow of sound). “Ganharva Veda, divine music, calms your nervous system.” “Vastu is architecture that complies with the Vedas. It is like feng shui.” Martha is building a retreat center in Kaui that adheres to the principles of vastu. She will also hold retreats in Bend, Oregon. One of main principles in Ayurveda is “to eliminate the root cause.” I ask Martha to share the obstacles she encounters when working with clients on this aspect of Ayurveda. Essentially, she has learned to meet clients where they are and to nudge them into the direction of perfect health. Website: www.suryaspa.comInstagram: @suryaspaayurvedaFacebook: @suryaspaayurveda
Today I talked to Patrick Olivelle about his book Grhastha: The Householder in Ancient Indian Religious Culture (Oxford UP, 2019). For scholars of ancient Indian religions, the wandering mendicants who left home and family for a celibate life and the search for liberation represent an enigma. The Vedic religion, centered on the married household, had no place for such a figure. The central finding of these studies is that the householder bearing the name grhastha is not simply a married man with a family but someone dedicated to the same or similar goals as an ascetic while remaining at home and performing the economic and ritual duties incumbent on him. The grhastha is thus not a generic householder, for whom there are many other Sanskrit terms, but a religiously charged concept that is intended as a full-fledged and even superior alternative to the concept of a religious renouncer.
