Tweetposts - 29th July 2010, Thursday

We read inspiring things. We acknowledge them honestly. It is because it resonates with us deeply. But life is unrelenting. It lets us transform only if we implement it in the “here and now”. Otherwise, what we read and acknowledge fades off in due course. That is why it is said, taking one step is better than planning a million steps!

Was reading about why people in India take “aarathi”. The science behind it is fascinating. We’ve now forgotten the science and are doing it as a ritual. But even that is said to have some benefits. My point is that, despite all this it is beautiful. The thought that something so insightful is still alive, albeit in a faded form is exciting! With the right keys and people, we can easily revive it! The culture in this place is replete with things like this.

This is an age of information overload. There is no cure for it. An important exercise everyone needs to do is to make sure it doesn’t cause an attention deficit. And part of that is realizing it is impossible to keep up with it all.

What's the science behind 'aarathi'? any links or books?

Ramsi,
It's the science of cleaning the aura of a person (especially one who has gone one for long and probably has the impact of the world on him) with chemicals of the right compositions. We use the right chemicals :)
But the person doing the aarthi has to be able to "see" the aura (light body) and do the aarthi. We typically do it in a circle, but it has to be tailor made for each person. This means that the person should be perceptive enough.
Note: From Sadhguru in "kAttu poo"
