TEN THINGS TO LEARN FROM JAPAN…….

TEN THINGS TO LEARN FROM JAPAN…….

1.  THE CALM

Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.

2.  THE DIGNITY

Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.

3.  THE ABILITY

The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.

4. THE GRACE

People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.

Salt: Vital Functions of Natural Unrefined Sea Salt (NUSS) / Rock Salt (Sindhav Namak) in the Body

Modern India

Here’s what is happening in India : 

The two Ambani brothers can buy 100 percent of every company listed on the Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE) and would still be left with $30 billion to spare. The four richest Indians can buy up all goods and services produced over a year by 169 million Pakistanis and still be left with $60 billion to spare. The four richest Indians are now richer than the forty richest Chinese. 

In November, Bombay Stock Exchange’s benchmark Sensex flirted with 20,000 points. As a consequence, Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries became a $100 bill ion company (the entire KSE is capitalized at $65 billion). Mukesh owns 48 percent of Reliance.  More

Science and Spirituality in Modern India
Organized by: Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi

To be inaugurated by His Holiness, the 14 th Dalai Lama, this international conference will bring together important speakers from across a variety of disciplines including the natural sciences, More

Diabetes isn’t a one-way street…’
…it can be reversed, says researcher Dr Neal Barnard, as he presents this idea to doctors and students all over India. He tells Malay Desai the benefits of going vegan, banishing milk and more
Q. It’s your fourth trip to the world diabetes capital. What’s the new way of life you are advocating and why?

I feel India is the world diabetes capital for a reason. Indians have adopted a ‘westernised’ diet – they are having more meat, cheese and soda. I’m here to talk about ‘easternising’ it again – by going vegan in traditional ways. After all, diabetes can rob you of ten years of your life, and it’s a leading cause of blindness, kidney malfunction and amputation.

I grew up watching my grandfather having a meat business, which my father disliked . My father spent his life treating diabetes and I now head the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. We do research studies funded by the US government.

To understand the subject of religious tolerance, we have to approach it from several angles. In brief we shall first define Religion and Tolerance. Then examine some common factors linking major religions, and arrive at what is religious tolerance. We shall also see why do followers of various religions so vehemently differ with each other and also look at some of the ways and means to counter religious intolerance—the cause of bigotry and fanaticism.  More

CRUELTY TO ANIMALS

Comments Off, Cruelty, Humanity, Spirituality, Uncategorized, by administrator.

Over 7 billion farm animals die or are slaughtered in the U.S. every year for the production of flesh, mostly in highly mechanized factory-like systems using unprecedented, largely unregulated methods of brutality, danger, and cruelty.

There are virtually no laws against cruelty to animals raised for food in the U.S.

Pigs in today’s factory farms are often stacked two and three decks high in space just big enough to fit in. They stand on metal or concrete slats, which painfully cripple the legs of half of them before slaughter. Their entire lives are lived this way. Pigs have a similarly high intelligence and sensitivity as the family pet dog.
