Source: - Swami Purnachaitanya / Quora. First of all I would like to mention that the Sudarshan Kriya is mainly effective for those who have done the Art of Living course, as there is no other place to learn this technique properly, and it only affects other people indirectly - as in, when you become a more healthy, happy, caring and responsible person it will indirectly affect the people around you, but you breathing in a different manner will not directly affect the people around you (unless you make a lot of noise or have a smelly breath ;-)). As for the Sudarshan Kriya being effective, it again depends on what you mean it to be effective for: if you are asking if it is effective in cleaning your house or paying your debts, then probably not. However, if you are asking how effective i...

Miscellaneous
Muslims routinely scare people of other faiths by saying that if they do not embrace Islam, Allah will burn them in hell. There are 7.4 billion people on Earth -- 2 billion Christians, 1.5 billion are Muslims, and the rest of 3.9 billion people on Earth are Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists, Agnostics, Shintos, Confucians, others. Can you ever imagine a loving and merciful God who would burn more than nearly 6 billion people of humanity in hell for not following the Muslim faith? This means that Rama, Buddha, Guru Nanak, Swami Vivekananda, Mahatma Gandhi, and even modern Gurus such as Amma of Kerala, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev would find their place in hell. Can you imagine that a Maulvi at a local masjid, being a devout Muslim, would find his way in heaven, but not Gandh...
The Importance of Nasadiya Sukta

The Importance of Nasadiya Sukta

Hinduism, Indic Religions
'Nasadiya Sukta' occurs in the 10th Mandala of Rigveda (10.129.1-7). This hymn is very peculiar in many respects. Many thinkers have opined that, the philosophical speculations started, when man began to suspect the efficacy of his own senses. He doubted that his senses are not capable to understand the true character of the experimental world. At this point, man started to ask questions to himself. This is considered as the first step of philosophical speculation, which later, lead to the development of robust thought streams. Nasadiya Sukta in Sanskrit:- नासदासीन्नो सदासीत्तदानीं नासीद्रजो नो व्योमा परो यत् | किमावरीवः कुह कस्य शर्मन्नम्भः किमासीद्गहनं गभीरम् ॥ १॥ न मृत्युरासीदमृतं न तर्हि न रात्र्या अह्न आसीत्प्रकेतः | आनीदवातं स्वधया तदेकं तस्माद्धान्यन्न परः किञ्चनास ॥२॥ तम
