Street Fighting Tips, Moves and Techniques

So what exactly are the best street fighting techniques to use in the case of a real attack. You need street fighting moves that:

1.) Don’t require hours of practice,

2.) Are easy to remember under pressure, and

3.) It certainly can’t hurt if their effects on your attacker are painful and downright nasty. You need to be able to end the fight quick and easy.

My definition of a street fight is when there is a confrontation between 2 or more people, And No Rules Apply. There’s no referee there to call “low blows,” there’s no points, no rounds, and there’s no calling a time out when you’ve had enough. It’s just 2 people in a drag down, all out brawl, or 1 person who’s having to deal with multiple attackers. Either way, no rules apply, and you have to do what it takes to survive!

The more you understand different types of confrontation, the less you will fear it and the better prepared you will be. Here are some things to keep in mind:

(1) Any confrontation can be fast and explosive;

(2) It is unpredictable and spontaneous;

(3) It can be ugly and brutal, and extremely dangerous;

(4) Unarmed Street Fighting usually turns into a ground fight;

(5) Kicking is seldom used.

(6) And finally… there are no rules!

There are lots of tips that I could give you, and most would take pages and pages to fully explore. Here are just a few that can keep you alive in a real confrontation.

1. STRIKE FIRST.

One of the best techniques to remember is that whenever you are squared off with a dangerous attacker you must strike first, strike fast, and keep the pressure on. This is critical to being able to stop your attacker dead in his tracks, and can often end the fight before it starts.

2. DON’T TELEGRAPH YOUR MOVES.

Telegraphing means letting your assailant know what you’re going to do before you do it. There are many subtle forms of telegraphing that you may not even realize. Here are just a few: (1) Cocking your arm back before punching or striking; (2) Tensing your neck, shoulders or arms before striking; (3) Widening your eyes or raising your eyebrows; (4) Shifting your shoulders; (5) Taking a sudden and deep breath.

3. DON’T USE FLEXIBLE WEAPONS.

One of the best street fighting tips to remember is to not use flexible weapons such as chains, belts, etc. I know the movies and television would have you believe differently but they are actually ineffective for some of the following reasons: (1) They can be difficult to control in a fight; (2) Once you swing a chain, for example, if you miss you can’t retract it quick enough to make it worth your while; they have to follow through the complete range of motion to be re-executed; (4) They open you up to a variety of possible counters; (6) They can get snagged or caught on your assailant’s body or limbs, and they can get it away from you and use it against you.

4. ATTACK THE THREE TARGET ZONES. There are three possible target zones. Zone One (head region). They include: eyes, temples, nose, chin, and back of neck. These areas affect his senses. Zone Two (neck, torso, groin) deals with targets related to the attacker’s breathing. They include: throat, solar plexus, ribs, and groin. Zone Three (legs and feet) deals with targets that affect his mobility. They include: thighs, knees, shins, instep, and toes.

These are just a few things to remember if you ever find yourself in this unfortunate situation. We have just barely scratched the surface though in really being able to become unstoppable in an actual street fight. Stop using ineffective moves and techniques that are only going to get you killed.

Exercise for Teenagers – 5 Free Exercises You Can Do at Home

The key to staying healthy as a teenager is to engage in a combination of eating right and forming the right exercise habits. This is particularly important since so many teens today are overweight.

For example, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently published a report containing teen obesity statistics. The report said that 14% of teens in the United States are obese. Translation: 14% of our teens are at elevated risk for high cholesterol, heart disease, high blood pressure, and Type 2 Diabetes.

Apart from these health-related risks to being overweight, these teens tend to have more problems making friends, getting dates, and finding jobs than do their thinner friends. On average, they also suffer from self-image problems and other psychological issues, which can have an effect on the quality of their schoolwork and overall sense of well-being.

The bottom line is: unless an overweight teen gets their weight under control, they are very likely to carry these problems associated with being too heavy well into adulthood – and possibly for the rest of their lives.

If you are looking for good exercises for teenagers, here are 5 free exercises that you can do at home:

1. Work your heart at least 30-60 minutes per day:

Working your heart muscle is known as cardiovascular exercise. While you don’t need to do it all at once, all together you should be getting at least 30-60 minutes of cardio per day.

2. Improve your balance and flexibility with yoga:

The importance of flexibility and a good sense of balance are an important aspect of a healthy body. Buy a yoga DVD (you can find them used for a few dollars each online) or watch/record/TIVO free yoga shows on TV and watch them frequently. You can do many types of yoga directly on regular carpet. Eventually, you may want to invest in an inexpensive yoga mat. Bonus: many people who do yoga also report feeling more emotionally balanced and centered, as well.

3. Build core strength with butterfly breath:

Here is a specific exercise for building your core strength (i.e., your torso, stomach and back muscles) that you can do anywhere. It’s called “butterfly breath.” Here’s how:

a. Stand up straight with your legs spread hip-width apart, arms lifted straight out at your sides.

b. While breathing out, lift your right knee and touch it to your left elbow.

c. Then, while inhaling, return to position “a”. Switch sides and repeat 12-15 times on each side.

4. Flatten your tummy by doing the bicycle:

A flat, strong tummy is an important mark of the physically-fit. Try the “bicycle” exercise (note: no bicycle required!).

a. Lie out flat on the floor, laying your hands beside your head.

b. Bring up your knees to a forty-five degree angle and slowly act as if you are pedaling a bicycle in mid-air.

c. Touch your left elbow to your right knee, then do the opposite side. Keep an even pace throughout. Do about 1-3 sets of 12-16 repetitions.

All You Need To Know About The 6th Month (From 23 to 27 Weeks)

I have spent nights of reading and searching to give you this complete pregnancy guide. In this article we will go through fetus development, physical symptoms and infrequent symptoms. I did my best to simplify the presentation of this article to help you easily find your answer.

Fetus Development

Your baby’s eyes can open and close and react to light, vocal cords are functioning, eye brows are forming now.

Your baby is still active, since he is still relatively small about 30 cm long and is comfortable moving, punching and changing positions.

He weighs around 2 pounds. The facial features looks like a minuscule newborn baby.

The lungs are not fully developed so a baby born can still survive but with intensive care. Remember though, every day spent in the womb gives your baby a higher chance of survival and better odds at gaining the functionality it needs to survive.

Common physical symptoms:

1- The baby’s movements becomes more definite enjoy the punches from those little arms and legs.

2- Baby’s hiccups become more visible from the outside:Fetal hiccups usually shows up around the second or third trimester. Fetal hiccups are reflexive and do not seem to cause discomfort. In addition, hiccups prepare the fetus’s lungs for healthy respiratory function after birth and they help regulate the baby’s heart rate during the third trimester.

3- Whitish vaginal discharge (Leukorrhea)

4- Abdominal pain: It is often when pregnant women experience abdominal pain, and most of the time doctors hear complaints describing pain in the back and especially abdomen. There are many possible causes of such pain.

The most common cause for such pain is that round ligament stretching will cause minor or even moderate pain in the lower abdomen during pregnancy. A pregnant woman has to differentiate what is and what is not a cramp. A cramp could easily be confused with a minor contraction, which happens from time to time and is no cause for alarm. It is just a signal that the uterus is preparing itself for the upcoming birth. Severe or persistent abdominal pain during pregnancy is never normal and it requires an immediate doctor’s exam.

5- Constipation: Constipation in pregnant women occurs due to hormones that relax the intestinal muscle and to the pressure of the expanding uterus on the intestines. Relaxation of the intestinal muscle causes food and waste to move slower through your system. To avoid constipation you must eat fibers, lots of greens and fruits. and drink plenty of water up to 3 Liters per day.

6- Heartburn: Hormonal changes is the main cause for heartburn during pregnancy. Hormones, particularly progesterone, can relax the valve that normally prevents stomach acid from backing up into the esophagus what will cause an irritation.

To avoid acid reflux, eat six small meals instead of three large ones. Abstain from eating tomato sauce, thyme, orange juice, spices and full-fat dairy products.

7- Headaches

8- Bleeding gums: hormonal changes are the reason of all our pregnancy problems. Pregnancy hormones causes a swollen gum that bleeds easily. Take a good care of your teeth and gum during those 9, long, months. Brush your teeth 3 times a day, floss and rinse with salt and water to ease any gum pain or bleeding.

9- Nasal congestion or rhinitis: Nearly every woman suffers from nasal stuffiness. that’s because the high level of estrogen and progesterone circulating in the body bring increased blood flow to the mucous membranes of the nose causing the to swell. The congestion won’t get better until after delivery but I beg you not to use any nasal sprays unless they are prescribed by your doctor. Always check with your Ob-Gyn even if the medication were prescribed by another doctor.

10- Increased appetite

11- Leg cramps: Most leg cramps are caused from the fatigue of carrying around that extra weight. Cramps can also be aggravated by the expanding uterus putting pressure on blood vessels. While some experts believe they are due to an excess of phosphorus or a shortage of calcium, magnesium or other body minerals. Your doctor might suggest you take magnesium supplement could decrease legs cramps.

Try following these instructions to prevent those annoying nighttime leg cramps:

1- Stretch your legs a few times a day, especially before bedtime

2- Rotate your ankles and shake your toes to increase circulation

3- Avoid sitting with your legs crossed

4- Avoid standing for a long period of time

5- Eat Calcium rich foods

6- Reduce your intake of phosphorus rich foods such as soft drink, processed meat and snacks

12- Mild feet and ankles swelling (edema): Most women suffer from Edema. This symptom is the result of excessive fluid accumulation around feet and ankles. Here are few tips to help you deal with normal swelling during pregnancy:

* Try to rest and lift your feet whenever it’s possible.

* Drink plenty of water, up to 2 liters a day. The extra fluids will help flush out your system of waste products which may have increased swelling.

* Wear comfortable shoes.

* Excessive swelling that doesn’t seem to ease down after many hours of rest should be reported to your doctor.

13- Lower back and leg pain: this is another symptom of expectant motherhood. The pressure of the enlarging uterus, which has been responsible for so many other discomforts, can also affect the sciatic nerve, causing lower back, buttock and leg pain. To relieve this pain you can try to exercise more often, practice pregnancy yoga or Pilates, pelvic tilt, swimming or walking. Take care to sit in a good posture and lift your feet from time to time this may help reduce the pain.

14- Itchy Belly: This occurs when your uterus grows and expands to accommodate your new baby and your skin stretches. Pregnancy hormones can also result in some itching during pregnancy as well as changes in your liver enzymes.

15- Enlarged breasts: For small breasted women, this could be the best pregnancy symptom ever. Hormonal changes during pregnancy cause increased blood flow and changes in the breast tissue which makes your breasts feel unusually swollen, sore and tingly.

16- Fewer mood swings

17- Absentmindedness

Uncommon Symptoms

Numbness and tingling fingers and toes is normal in pregnancy and is thought to be due to swelling tissues pressing on nerves

Clumsiness: The loosening of joints and the retention of water, can both make your grasp on objects less firm which will cause temporary clumsiness.

Gestational Diabetes: It first may be noticed in the sixth and seventh month of pregnancy. It occurs when the pancreas is unable to produce enough insulin or the body is unable to process the insulin properly, resulting in high levels of glucose. Gestational diabetes occurs in women who have not previously had diabetes, and the condition likely disappears after giving birth. The symptoms you should watch out for are:

* Excessive weight gain

* Excessive thirst

* Vaginal infection

* Excessive fatigue

* Excessive hunger

* Blurry vision

In case you notice these symptoms please contact your doctor.

Yoga Arm Balance – The Crane (Bakasana)

I’ve always found it interesting that a specific asana can be loved by some people, while being despised by others. Bakasana, The Crane, is one of those postures which seems to split opinion.

I guess it’s only natural that we should be naturally drawn to postures which we are good at, or which are suited to our own specific strengths and abilities, while shying away from postures which our bodies are not so suited towards (which explains my aversion to upavistha konasana, Wide Legged Seated Forward Bend).

On the face of it that would explain my love of bakasana. To the uninitiated, the posture appears to rely heavily on upper body strength, but in fact, getting into and holding bakasana relies much more on focus and balance than on pure strength.

The name bakasana comes from the Sanskrit word baka meaning crane. It’s easy to see why the asana was given this name, as when seeing a yogi balanced gracefully on the hands with the body tucked in tight, one is reminded of a crane wading through a shallow pool.

To perform bakasana

1. After preliminary work to open the hips, and warm up the wrists, arms and shoulders, squat down from tadasana with the feet flat on the floor. Widen the knees and lean forward, so the torso comes between the inner thighs.

2. Bend the elbows, and place the hands flat on the floor, fingers spread, with the backs of the upper arms close to the armpits against the shins.

3. On an exhale, with the front of the body contracted, lift the heels and lean forward, taking the weight of the body onto the arms. Keeping tone in the abdomen, continue to lean forward and lift the tailbone until the feet lift off from the floor, and balance on the arms.

4. Straighten the arms as much as possible, gazing at a spot on the floor and slightly ahead, but do not lift the head so far as to compress the back of the neck.

5. The posture can be held for 10 – 60 seconds, then exhale and slowly lower the feet back towards the floor into a low squat. Bakasana rounds the spine, so a suitable counter pose would be an asana which takes the spine in the opposite direction, such as ustrasana (Camel).

Effects

Bakasana is of course strengthening to the upper body, particularly the arms and shoulders, and also the abdominal muscles. It massages the internal organs, and develops balance and focus. It’s also a great preliminary for handstand.

Contraindications

Wrist/arm/shoulder injuries, particularly carpel tunnel syndrome.

Pregnancy

Variations

A great variation is the side crow, parsva bakasana, which strangely many find easier than the regular pose. The asana can also be used in a sequence to/from a tripod headstand, or jumping from this posture back to plank or from downward facing dog.

Worried Your Husband Will Begin To Move On During Your Trial Separation? These Tips Might Help

I often hear from wives who see a trial separation not as an opportunity, but as a risk. They worry that their husband is just using the separation as an opportunity to eventually get a divorce or to move on from their marriage.

I heard from a wife who said: “my husband has been pushing for a trial separation for months. And since he made this suggestion, things have deteriorated between us. I have directly asked him if he’s using this separation as an excuse to start living as a single person. I’ve asked him if he intends to start seeing other women and to move on with his life. He says that at this point, he is not sure. He says there is a difference between being happily married and separated and that he plans to live his life as a separated man and then evaluate how that feels to him or if it makes him happy. To me, this means that he plans to move on as soon as possible. My husband says I shouldn’t make these assumptions. But how can I not? What do I do with all of these fears that I have? It affects how I’m interacting with my husband.”

Having been in this situation myself, I know that people will tell you that you shouldn’t worry so much or that your anxiety is going to hurt your cause. But of course, this is easy for them to say. I know how this feels, and it’s very difficult. On the one hand, you feel as if you can’t afford to let him walk out the door. But on the other, you know that you must. But you do it with a heavy heart because you know that he may not ever come back. This leaves you with the option of trying to set it up so you have the best chance of him not moving on. I will discuss how to do this in the following article.

Don’t Allow Your Anxiety To Make It More Likely That He Will Want To Move On. Don’t Push Him Away: One thing you need to understand is that ultimately, if your husband feels in his heart that he wants to move on, he may act on this no matter what you say or do. While it’s possible to delay him actually moving on, the truth is that if he really wants to, he eventually probably will. It can be very hard to ignore what your heart and your gut is telling you to do forever.

So the real key for you is to try to set it up so that his heart is NOT telling him to move on. And, when you’re constantly saying things like: “are you using this separation as an excuse to move on?” Or, “you’re going to move on, aren’t you?” then you actually make these things more likely. I know that you feel very anxious and I understand why you do. But, be very conscious of not allowing your anxiety to fuel your responses and your behaviors. As difficult as it may be, if you act as if you are confident that he will remain committed to you during the trial separation, then you make it more likely that he actually will be.

When you feel your anxieties running away from you, remove yourself from the situation and do whatever it takes to calm down. Journal, do yoga, burn candles. Only you know what is most likely to help you cut back on your stress, but make sure that you are as calm as possible when you interact with your husband.

Understand That Your Interactions With Your Husband During The Separation Are Going To Influence Whether He Moves On Or Not: Here is another thing to remember. When you are separated, your husband is either going to think of you positively or negatively. The more negatively he thinks of you, the more likely it becomes that he is going to want to move on. So you need to do everything in your power to make sure that he thinks of you positively and wants to spend more time with you. Sometimes, this means backing off a little bit to allow him to miss you, to wonder about you, and to wish that things were different between you.

However, if you come on too strongly, constantly question your husband or make accusations that he’s looking for excuses to move on, then he’s less likely to miss you and he’s more motivated to move on as a means to get further away from you to escape the drama. To that end, you want to make sure that you are easy to approach and interact with. You want to be friendly and open. I know that I’m asking a lot because sometimes, friendly and open is hard to pull off and when you’re fearful and alone. But it’s very important that make every attempt to show your husband that wonderful, playful woman that he fell in love with. Because, to a certain extent, he needs to fall in love with her again. Or at least he needs to be open to the idea that the love for her can return. Because once it does, he is much more less likely to want to move on because he knows that there is something, and someone, worthwhile to return home to.

Excerpt From the Book Voice of Babaji: A Trilogy on Kriya Yoga

DIALOGUE: THE VOICE OF BABAJI

Kriya Yoga

You will not die, should not die and cannot die. This truth, if accepted, will put an end to the materialists’ mad race for power and physical enjoyment and make all seek Babaji, the eternal mystic bliss. You refers to the atman, the eternal Spirit.

“The wise mourn neither for the dead nor for the living. I, you and the assembled kings have lived and will live at all times. Jivatman, the dweller in this body passes through childhood, youth and old age and then with the same ease into another body through the door of death, hence the wise are not deceived by the phenomenon of death.”

“Arjuna! Bear heat and cold and pleasure and pain as they are ephemeral, being dependent on the senses. This serene existence will lead to immortality.”

“The wise know that if Truth is non-existent, it cannot be created and if it is existent, it can never cease to be. It is changeless and pervades the Universe.”

“Bodies die, but the Truth, which possesses the body is eternal and indestructible. This is the Atman. It is without a beginning and an end and unchanging forever. How can it slay or be slain? Don’t dream that you kill

the Atman. It only sheds bodies like worn-out garments and dons new ones. It is not wounded by weapons, burned by fire, dried by wind and wetted by water. On the other hand, it is the being of being, changeless and eternal, as it is beyond the senses and the mind, it is not subject to modification.”

“All that is born must die. Rebirth is certain for the dead. Hence, do not grieve.”

“Some have realized this Atman in all its wonder, some speak of it and others have heard about it. While a few others though told about it, do not understand a word.” (Bhagavad Gita, II.12-37).

Thus, Lord Krishna preached the Gospel of eternal Atman to his devotee Arjuna on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. If this Atman, the Spark of Divinity in Man, is realized and made the basis of human existence, all sorrows will vanish and nothing but peace (shanti) will remain. When this Jivatman, the human spirit, contacts the Paramatman, the Universal Spirit, It becomes the Holy Spirit or Ghost. If one attains this exalted state, one need not fear death for the Holy Ghost can materialize itself anywhere at will. All this is not fiction. For example Jesus Christ, the Son, came from the Father, the Brahman and arose after the crucifixion, as the Holy Ghost who appeared not only before the direct disciples, but also before other saints, like the well known German Catholic stigmatist Therese Neumann, and Mahatma Ram Das of India. Another eminent incarnation who has attained this State is Babaji, reviver of KRIYA which is yet another name for Raja Yoga.

Yoga is an ancient science of God-realization leading to the union of the Jivatman with the Paramatman. Yoga seems to have been practiced even by the Dravidians, the pre-Aryan inhabitants of India. There is some evidence to show that the Dravidians worshipped the lingam, the symbol which represents Shiva, the third member of the Hindu Trinity, the King of Yogis. Then came the great Aryan invasion. They came to conquer, only to be conquered and to be gradually assimilated. Obviously the Aryans must have learned the science of Yoga from the Dravidians and made their own original contribution to it. There is a clear reference in the Hindu scriptures (Bhagavad Gita, IV.1-2), that Yoga was taught to Vivasvat, an illuminary who passed it on to Manu, the Hindu Moses. He instructed Ikshvaku, the founder of the Solar dynasty and thus, it was learned by succeeding royal sages. As Sri1 Aurobindo has clearly stated, that no nation has or can dominate the world eternally. Time has witnessed the rise and fall of many Roman Empires and in every age some nation or other has been in the limelight. India has had its turn. During such an age, which may be called the satya yuga or Golden Age of that particular nation, the characteristic national traits dominate the show. Yoga must have been practiced extensively though not openly when saintly kings like Rajarishi Janaka ruled the land. But for every day there must be a night and India was soon overwhelmed by a dark materialistic age. To minimize the misuse of the powerful science of Yoga during this time, it was rightly made inaccessible by the great exponents. For sometime it was even lost and had to be revived by a great Master.

In the dvapara yuga, Lord Krishna definitely taught the secret science of Yoga to Arjuna (Bhagavad Gita, IV.27-29). Then came sage Patanjali, who made the science systematic by composing aphorisms, which constitute one of six important systems of Hindu Philosophy. Prophets like Elijah, Jesus and Kabir have used a technique similar to the Raja Yoga of Patanjali, who actually uses the term Kriya Yoga. When India came into her own there was a gradual renaissance and great mystics like Babuji Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Gandhi and Babaji came to the forefront. The contribution of Babaji in this national awakening lies in re-discovering and clarifying the lost technique of Yoga, which he re-named simply KRIYA. This is a precious gem in the crown of India’s cultural heritage.

Life of Kriya Babaji

One fine day in the nineteenth century, a lonely pilgrim was seen frantically climbing the steep cliff leading to an almost inaccessible ledge, in a sacred Himalayan region sanctified to this day by the tapas and presence of great saints. The valiant soul had been searching for months with unabated enthusiasm for his paranmukta, who had conquered time and death. Obviously goaded on by an unseen Force, he managed to scramble to a lofty, flat ledge, where he found his cynosure, an immortal Youth of twenty-five. He was fair-skinned with a beautiful, strong, luminous body of medium height and build. He had long lustrous copper-colored hair, dark calm sparkling yogic eyes and a characteristic broad nose and held a danda (bamboo staff). In short, he was a youthful replica of his favorite and foremost disciple, Lahiri Mahasaya.

The strange intruder entered the circle of devotees, which included Swami Kebalananda and a couple of American saints. He spoke with reverent intuition: “Sir, you must be the great Babaji,” and begged to be accepted as a disciple. The great Master was as silent and as rigid as the rock on which he sat. He was testing the aspirant, but, AUM! it turned out to be the straw that broke the camel’s back. The pilgrim’s patience was exhausted and threatened to commit suicide, if Babaji’s guidance to attain the Divine goal was not to be available to him. “Do so,” was Babaji’s calm, unruffled reply. The worthy aspirant rose to the occasion and jumped down the rocky chasm to meet with certain death. This unhappy development shocked and stunned the group of devotees, as they were not aware of the fact that the Satguru was merely carrying out the ancient rigid

injunction of Yoga, which demands that the aspirant is prepared to sacrifice and dedicate his life for the realization of God through yogic meditation.

“Bring the body,” the command of Babaji broke the grave-like silence of the sacred group. Some hastened to fulfill the order and the mangled mass of flesh and bone lay at his feet.

“Now he is fit to be accepted,” calmly spoke the Satguru and touched the remains with his holy hands. Marvel of marvels! Wonder of wonders! Miracle of miracles! The aspirant sprang to life and fell prostrate at the Lotus Feet of Satguru Deva. “Death shall not touch you again.” He was beaming with love for his new child who had become immortal within a few hours through his Divine grace. It takes generations of sadhana for ordinary folk to attain that exalted level. Babaji seemed to be cruel only to be kind.

“Shifting camp and staff (dera danda uthao),” the musical voice of the Master rang out the familiar command. The whole circle, including the resurrected chela, dematerialized and disappeared from the ledge. This astral means was one of the methods used by Babaji to shift from crag to crag, in the holy region of Badrinath. He has been living here for centuries, as an active witness of the slow but steady evolutionary progress of mankind towards the attainment of perfection through the mystic path of Kriya.

Little was known, of the life of the imperfect physical frame of Kriya Babaji. None before had dared to ask him these trifling, though interesting details. All we were permitted to know is his deep lasting faith in the emancipation of mankind through Kriya. The life history of Babaji is really a history of his global mission, which knows no destruction of creeds, sects or nationalities. In the ninth century, Acharya Shankara, the well-known monist, completed his gurukulavasa under Govinda Bhagavatpada and went to Banaras, the heart of Hindustan. There Babaji materialized to initiate him into the mysteries of Kriya Yoga. (This event was described by the Master himself to Lahiri Mahasaya and Swami Kebalananda).

In the medieval period there was a religious upheaval in India, which culminated in the rule of the Hindu-Muslim emperor, Akbar, the Great. During this era many eminent saints adorned different parts of India. Of these, Kabirdas, the Master Yogi of Banaras, was one. It had been a mystery to the writer, how this saint could have been one of the greatest yogis when his mantra guru was only a bhakta. The fact is, he was initiated by Babaji, in the fifteenth century. All these clearly show that the age of the Master exceeds many centuries.

The nineteenth century was a “red-letter epoch” in the history of India. It marked the beginning of the modern renaissance with the first war of Indian independence. The time was ripe to spread the exalted Gospel of Kriya, far and wide. The worthy soul chosen for the purpose was his favorite disciple, Lahiri, as he called him.

The love of Babaji for Lahiri Mahasaya was deathless and deep. In one incarnation, Lahiri spent many years with his Master, mainly in the cave of Drongiri Mountain, but was forced by his past actions to shuffle off his mortal coils and lose sight of his Satguru. Babaji, being a perfected Being, was able to follow him, even in the life beyond death. After guarding him like a mother cat through thick-and-thin, he had the joy of seeing his disciple complete the torturous womb-life and be born, as the baby of Multakashi and Gaur Mohan Lahiri, in the Nadia district, Bengal on September 30, 1828. He was named Shyama Charan Lahiri. When he buried himself in the sands of Nadia, at the age of four in the vesture of a yogi, his guru in life, death and after was watching him. Thus, for more than three decades, Babaji guided and patiently waited for his beloved disciple to return to his fold. Even his cave, asana blanket and bowl were kept clean by his unexcelled Satguru!

After thirty-three years of worldly family life the great moment arrived. At that time Lahiri Mahasaya was working as a government accountant in the Military Engineering Department at Danapur. Babaji tapped his superior officer and a telegram was sent from the main office transferring Lahiri Mahasaya to Ranikhet, a new army post in the Himalayas. With a servant, he took thirty days to complete the arduous journey of five hundred miles by tonga. Fortunately, the office duties were light and he had ample time to roam in the sacred jungles, in quest of great saints. One afternoon when he was rambling, he was surprised beyond description to hear a distant voice beckoning him by name. Walking quickly he climbed Drongiri Mountain and reached a level clearing where he was welcomed affectionately by a stranger, who looked physically to be his mirror-image-reflection. He rested in one of the tidy caves, but was not able to recognize his saintly Host. Many years of separation and layers of new experiences had formed a thick overburden on his past memories.

References to his favorite woolen-seat and the familiarity of the grotto did not help him. Finally, he was struck gently on the forehead and at once the delightful impressions of his previous birth came to the forefront. With joy, Lahiri Mahasaya recognized Babaji, who narrated how he had followed him all these years.

Obeying his Guru’s mandate, he drank a bowl of oil and retired for the night to the rocky bank of the river, Gogash, where he was not at all affected by the biting Himalayan cold, the waves of the river or the howling of jungle beasts. At midnight, a companion guided him with warm clothes to a grand palace especially materialized to appease and quench his subconscious earthly desire. There, surrounded by other disciples, he was initiated into Kriya Yoga by the great Babaji, in whose very hand burned the initiating sacrificial fire. After dawn, when he said that he felt hungry, he was asked to close his eyes. On opening them, he found that the marvelous palace had vanished and the party was seated near the same old caves. Babaji ordered him to put his hand into a magic bowl to get the food he needed. When he searched for water the same bowl met his needs.

The same day, as he was seated on a blanket, Babaji blessed him. By touching his head, Lahiri attained the bliss of nirvikalpa samadhi, which lasted for seven continuous days. On the last day, he fell at the feet of his Master and craved for permission to stay with him always. Babaji persuaded him to return home to lead the life of an ideal householder yogi with inner renunciation. Babaji spoke to him at length about his responsibilities as a Guru of Kriya Yoga. The rigorous condition of complete inner renunciation, in order to receive Kriya initiation, was emphasized. At this stage, the softhearted Lahiri Mahasaya pleaded for relaxation of this safeguard. Babaji was kind enough to permit him to give initiation freely, to all humble seekers. Next morning, the fortunate disciple half

heartedly took leave to fulfill the mission. The Master consoled him by consenting to come to him, whenever he was called.

Lahiri was welcomed at the office after an absence of ten days and soon a letter from the head office re-transferred him to Danapur, referring to the first transfer, as a mistake. The kriyaban (Kriya yogi) alone knew the driving force behind these events. On route to Danapur, he spent a few days with some Bengalis at Moradabad. The host lamented on the absence of real saints in India and with too much zeal, Lahiri Mahasaya narrated his recent experience in the Himalayas. It was dismissed as daydream and so, to convince them, he decided to show them his Master. In a lonely dark room with two blanket seats, he prayed to Babaji who came with an angry look, as he had been summoned for a trifle.

Lahiri Mahasaya apologized and entreated him to stay to create faith in the minds of these folk. The kind Master consented, but stated that he would come thereafter, only when needed and not whenever called. One member of the party called the luminous Figure mass-hypnotism, but this doubt was cleared, for Babaji allowed them to touch his sacred body and he ate halva before he left. Needless to add, this incident led to a revolution in the outlook of the spectators.

Lahiri Mahasaya lived for years in Banaras without much publicity, in order to discharge his duty. Disciples and devotees gradually streamed into his residence to sit at his feet. Thus, came Maitra, Abhoya, A. Gafoor Khan, Brinda Bhagat, Swami Bhaskarananda Sarasvati, Balananda Brahmachari, the Maharajah of Banaras and his son, Maharajah Jotinra Mohan, Abnash Babu, Sri and Srimati Bhagavati Charan Ghosh, Kashi Moni, Swami Keshabananda, Panchanon Bhattacharya, Swami Pranabananda, Rama, Ramu, Swami Yukteswar, and a host of others, too numerous to mention. He even initiated a fervent devotee in a

vision, as the latter was not able to come to Banaras. Thus, during the modern age of the Indian renaissance, the delightful Ganga of Kriya flowed from Babaji in the Himalayas into the human habitat of misery and pain.

During this period Lahiri Mahasaya met Babaji several times. This is a rare privilege enjoyed only by two persons so far. During Prayag Kumbha Mela, he wandered among the sadhus criticizing the “mental hypocrisy” of a begging monk. Soon after, he was surprised to find the great Babaji washing the feet of an anchorite and proposing to clean his vessels later. Thus, he was taught the great lesson of humility. One night Kriya Babaji was seated with Lahiri Mahasaya, Swami Kebalananda and other chelas round a blazing Vedic fire. Suddenly, he struck the bare shoulder of a nearby disciple lightly with a burning log.

Lahiri Mahasaya: “How cruel!”

Babaji: “But for this, he would have been burned to death according to his prarabdha.” The omnipotent Master placed his healing hand on the burned shoulder and thereby saved him from painful death. All glory to the grace of Babaji!

Brahmacharini Shankari Mai Jew, a disciple of the great siddha Trailanga Swami, was on a visit to Lahiri Mahasaya at Barackpur, near Calcutta.Quietly Babaji entered the room and conversed with them. Suddenly at midnight, Lahiri Mahasaya ordered the recluse, Ram Gopal Mazumdar to go alone and immediately to the Dasasamedh ghat in Banaras. The command was carried out promptly. Ram Gopal sat at the secluded spot, and after a while was astonished to find a huge stone slab open, revealing a hidden cave, from which Mataji, the ecstatic sister of Babaji, stepped out through the yogic process of levitation. Soon after, Lahiri Mahasaya and the Kriya Paramguru materialized. All three prostrated at the feet of Babaji.

Babaji: “Propose to shed my form and plunge into the Infinite.”

Mataji: “Master, (entreatingly) I have glimpsed your plan. Why should you leave your body?

Babaji: “Because it makes no difference to be visible or invisible.”

Mataji: “Guru Deva, if it makes no difference, please do not discard your form.”

AUM! The beloved Master consented to retain his physical body which would be visible to a selected few only. Thus, a first-rate crisis in the history of the Kriya movement was staved through the intervention of the holy sister. Jai Mataji!

After the conversation, the great Master pacified the frightened Ram Gopal. Then the three past-masters levitated and left for their respective destinations. On returning to Gurudeswar Mohulla lodge, Ram Gopal was surprised to hear that his Guru, who was fully aware of the night’s interlude, was also physically present at home discoursing on immortality, to the other disciples. He became aware that Lahiri Mahasaya had attained the lofty state of being present in different places with two bodies at the same time.

One of the important disciples of this Kriya Guru was Swami Pranabananda, who was able to unite with Brahman through the intercession of his master. Later, he attained the Universal vision and developed the yogic power of being present in more than one body, at different places. Finally, he shuffled off his mortal coils at the appointed hour by second Kriya and as already announced enjoyed a brief period of Bliss, before being re-born. A few years after his new birth, he joined the immortal group of Kriya Babaji.

The Christ-like life of Lahiri Mahasaya was drawing to a close. Kriya Mulaguru chose Sri Yukteswar, one of his foremost disciples, to carry on the mission and make preliminary preparations for spreading the Kriya Gospel of Happiness to the West. Encouraged by Lahiri Mahasaya, Yukteswar was attending the Prayag Kumbha Mela in January 1894 and feeling disgusted with the noise and the assemblage of inferior sadhus, who he thought were wasting their lives, unlike Western scientists. Just then a strange saint with bright yogic eyes and a circle of impressive disciples called and embraced him, on the bank of the very low river Ganga. This saint was Babaji himself, who did not reveal his identity, to make the visitor quite at home. He hinted that Sri Yukteswar would one day

become a samnyasin. (As years rolled past, this came true). Then he taught him to behave like the mythical, swan (which drinks milk discarding the water), instead of blaming the whole congregation of mela sadhus for the faults of the many.

Now, the conversation drifted to the age old problem of mysticism. This activity is better known as the East-West conflict. Babaji with his international mission, spoke with great emotion on the need for harmonious development of the Orient and Occident through Kriya Yoga. He promised to send a disciple who will be the first missionary in the modern age to carry the message of Kriya to the West and also asked him to write a small book on the basic unity of Hindu and Christian Scriptures. With a parting message for Lahiri Mahasaya, the memorable meeting ended.

It was a red-letter day in the history of the Kriya movement for on that date the master plan was laid for spreading Babaji’s Gospel of Happiness, to different parts of the world. All glory to the Kriya Satguru and his mission. The very next day Sri Yukteswar sped to Banaras, to narrate the wonderful encounter to his Guru with the message: “Tell Lahiri that the stored power for this life now runs low; it is almost finished.” The moment these apparently enigmatic words were uttered, the great nishkamya karma yogi severed all connections with the world and became a pale statue. Death like silence reigned supreme for three long anxious hours before Lahiri Mahasaya regained his usual cheerful countenance. The hour of departure had not yet come, as the vital energy was only almost finished.

Meanwhile, Sri Yukteswar received the greatest surprise of his life, to hear from his Guru that the Kumbhmela sadhu was none other than the Savior, Babaji. He hastened to his Serampore residence to write the divine book, The Holy Science, with his first melodious Sanskrit verse comparing the essence of the Vedas and the Bible. Once he completed his pleasant task, he went to bathe in the Ganga. Silence was the order of the day. On his return home, he could even hear the swish-swish of his wet clothes. Something goaded him. He turned around to find the immortal Babaji and his associates seated beneath a large banyan tree near the riverbank. The Savior welcomed him, as he fell prostrate at his feet full of excitement, but politely declined the invitation to visit the

Serampore hermitage. Sri Yukteswar hurried home to get some sweetmeats for the distinguished visitors, but when he returned they were nowhere to be found. The group seemed to have vanished into thin air. Some months later, he failed to see the great Babaji hiding behind the sunlight, near Lahiri Mahasaya’s room at Banaras. The Guru then tapped his forehead, making his gaze faultless for a while and Yukteswar beheld the ever-youthful Paramguru. At first, remembering his grievance, he did not bow at his feet. But the unflattering explanation that followed satisfied Yukteswar and he knelt to pay his respects. The loving Satguru patted him on the shoulder. Soon after this incident, at a specified hour in 1895, Lahiri Mahasaya shed his body.

The heavy responsibility of the Kriya Mission was borne by Swami Yukteswar. After waiting patiently for years, he was immensely glad to welcome and train his chief foreordained disciple, Paramahansa Yogananda Giri, who was drawn to his harbor of peace by an irresistible magnetic Force. The stern Yukteswar made him get a University degree through miraculous means, thus equipping him for the future missionary work in Western Countries. After years of gurukulavasa and sadhana, Yoganandaji attained the Cosmic Consciousness through the grace of his master. Through that grace, he founded a large Yoga school at Ranchi, Bihar in 1918 to teach Yogoda, his unique system of mystic, mental and physical development. Meanwhile, Swami Yukteswar established a number of Sadhu Sabha centers and thereby kept the torch of Kriya burning along with his worthy disciple.

In 1920, Yoganandaji accepted an invitation to attend, as an Indian delegate, the International Congress of Religious Liberals of America, in Boston. This invitation followed a mystic vision directing him and so he made arrangements to attend with the permission of his Guru and the financial aid of his father. On the eve of his departure, he prayed for hours with staunch determination, to receive divine permission for this move, so as not to be lured by Western materialism. Just when he was about to break down physically, in the literal sense of the term, somebody knocked on his closed door. It was none other than the Kriya Mulaguru himself, who read his thoughts and assured him: “Our Heavenly Father has heard your prayer. He commands me to tell you: Follow the behests of your Guru and go to America. Fear not, you shall be protected.” After lifting the prostrate saint, he spoke about his life and the future of the Kriya Mission. Yoganandaji, in a fit of emotion, tried to follow Babaji repeatedly, contrary to his advice, but failed, as an invisible Force glued his feet to the floor. Promising to take him some other time, Babaji left with an affectionate benediction.

Happily, Paramahansa Yogananda Giri left the shores of India, in August, as the first modern Kriya missionary. After speaking at the Congress on the Science of Religion, he worked hard for years in humble surroundings to build the modern edifice of Kriya. As a result of his Herculean labors there are ninety branches all over the world – 26 in USA., 3 in Canada, one each in Cuba and Hawaii and 8 in South America and Africa, 6 in Mexico, 2 in the Philippines, 22 in India, 16 on the continent of Europe and 4 in the British Isles. The world headquarters at Mount Washington Estates, 3880 San Raphael Avenue, Los Angeles 65, California, USA, publishes ‘Self Realization Magazine,’ and the Eastern parental headquarters ‘Yogoda Sat Sangah,’ Dakshineshwar, near Calcutta, distributes fortnightly Yogoda lessons for students. More than three hundred

thousand have been initiated so far.

In 1935, in response to the mental call of Swami Yukteswar, Yoganandaji left for India passing through different countries on the way. He toured India as well, spreading far and wide the Gospel of Yogoda and collecting material for his magnum opus, ‘Autobiography of a Yogi.’ Mahatma Gandhi became his disciple. He was anxious to meet Babaji again, but the Savior sent word through Swami Keshabananda, while he was wandering in the Himalayas that he will meet him some other time. On March 9, 1936 Swami Yukteswar passed away at the age of 81, handing over the mantle to Paramahansa Yogananda Giri, who re-organized the global Kriya movement on this earth, while his Master carried

on the work in Hiranaya loka. In late 1936, Yogananda returned to America and served the cause of Kriya with unabated vigor for more than a decade. Towards the close of 1951, there was talk of his returning to India, a second time. But during the first half of 1952, the Kriya movement unexpectedly received a severe blow when Yoganandaji, who had been leading a secluded life of sadhana for months, stepped out to participate in the reception given to the Indian Ambassador in America. He suddenly collapsed and his physical body, which did not decompose even after twenty days became the sensation of sensations in America and elsewhere! He belonged to the galaxy of saints like Sri Aurobindo and Saint Bernadette.

Verily to compensate this great loss, Babaji decided to evolve a mahasaya out of a neglected, but able, experienced journalist. There is no word like impossible in his dictionary. This interesting event narrated in the following pages will not only be familiar to the mind of occultists, but also provide ample food for reflection to others.

The Birth of a Mission

‘No. 9, Boag Road’ by Sri V.T. Neelakantan is a book on Satguru Rama Devi. The writer was about to pen the note in the M. O. for the above publication. A thought crossed the mind: “Is it not high time you share your mystic treasures with others?” He did. Instead of “Dear Sir,” “Dear Atman” was used, and “Ever your Self ” replaced “Yours.”

The windup, of the note made an impression on V.T.N. (Sri V.T. Neelakantan) who visited 1-1 Arulananda Mudaly Street, San Thome Mylapore, Madras, in person. A strange invisible force drew us together. Frequent visits and hours of clarification on mystic subjects followed. He developed a regard bordering on respect.

One day he asked for books on mysticism. He received ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’ by Paramahansa Yogananda. This created a minor revolution in his mind. He became a devotee of Kriya Babaji frequently uttering his Name.

A leading surgeon, related to V.T.N. (by previous birth), was dressing his operated leg wound in his nursing home free of charge, but was scolding the patient daily for not attending to his health, without considering his poverty. One day the lalita shashranamavali of the doctor was unbearable, and V.T.N. left the place in disgust never to return for dressing thereafter. In spite of the deep leg ulcer, he had enough burning mystic enthusiasm to walk all the way from Egmore to San Thome to attend a group meditation, as he did almost daily. But on this day he was exhausted and he sat on a wayside concrete bench in the Marina praying: “Babaji! will you give me enough strength to fulfill this pilgrimage?”
