From my childhood elders  at home and school have always advised me to say “Rama, Rama” when in doubt, fear or trouble. They told me that Rama nama would protect me from all manner of troubles and bless me in every way. I sincerely believed in and followed this advice, with the additional belief that you only have to chant Sri Rama’s name and Hanuman is personally present next to you and on your side. This was a great thrill for me…

Recently in my yoga class, my Veda guru, advised me to touch the tip of my tongue to the top of my palate, for as much time as possible. She said that that yoga mudra helped people achieve emotional balance.

In trying to teach some of my young friends how to do this I asked them to make the sound “ra”. The Indian sound, not the “rolled” American one.

Also in pranayama class, we have to say, “mmmmmmmm” like a bee when we breathe out for the bhramari form of praaNaayaama, as well as in some of the yogaasanaas.

okay, now, what is ra +a + mmmmmmmmmmm + a?

Rama! Of Course!

My elders were having me do a very easy and beneficial yoga mudra + pranayama, while filling my head with delightful and cheerful thoughts of Sri Rama and Hanuman.

In the Vishnu Sahasranaama, Siva tells Parvati that one utterance of Rama’s name is equal to a thousand names of Vishnu.

Thanks to the good old Rama Sethu issue, Rama’s name is on the lips of all believers and non-believers alike, doing a world of good to politicians, lawyers, judges, journalists and lay people too.

Either with devotion or hatred, with faith or with reason everyone in this country and interested in this country is chanting the name of Sri Rama, and gathering at the very minimum the yogic benefits of the same.

Where the Pole Star is Overhead…!!


At the North Pole.. Of Course!!.. now that we think about it…

Lakshmi was telling me today that the Pole Star (Dhruva Nakshatram) is seen higher up in the sku at Hyderabad than it is seen in Bangalore.. and then went on to tell me that Dhruva is directly over head at the north pole.

Bangalore is “pretty equatorial” so our world view, sorry.. ‘star view’ is quite different from what people write in standard books written for other latitudes. We get far greater peek into the ‘southern sky’ compared to the norther-ies.

Valmiki tells us that when Sri Rama visited Lanka he felt the whole sky was all ‘upside down/mixed up’. It wasn’t that the earth shook. It was that everything was in a different place from where he was used to seeing them.

Now I want to go to the North Pole. I want to see Dhruva overhead! At least Scandinavia! No. Also Scandinavia.

Instantaneous Action?


Another implication of Maxwell’s work was that electrically charged bodies and magnets separated by large distances do not interact with one another instantaneously but do so by means of the electromagnetic field, which spreads out from one to another body at the speed of light. Jiggle an electric charge at one location, and it is only when the resulting electromagnetic wave reaches a remote charge that the latter will start oscillating in concert. This was utterly different from the mechanical picture of Newton where such action occurs instantaneously.

Lengths do contract and masses do grow with increasing speed in proportion to the factor 1/(1 − v 2 c 2 ) 1/2

For Einstein the contractions are an intrinsic property of space itself. Distances and time intervals as recorded by observers at different speeds take on different measures; what is space for one observer is a mix of space and time for another.

This story has many layers of meanings like many stories in our purANAs.

It has an astronomical significance also.

kArtikEya is associated with kRttika nakSatra – (Pleiades), He was raised by the 6 kRttikAs and thus also has the name SaNmukha (shanmukha) – the six-faced one.

This kArtikEya goes around the earth once every 24 hours and is very fast with his peacock vehicle.

When he challenged vinAyaka to a race around bhulOka (the earth) – 3 times, vinAyaka merely did 3 pradakSiNAs around s’iva and pArvati, the parents of the universe around whom everything revolves.

His vehicle is a mouse and he is very slow.

Stars that are closer to the pole star move slower when viewed from the earth and the pole star appears to…
