Dhammapada Pali, Hindi and English text
Bahujan Samaj Party president and former chief minister Mayawati Kumari .
Ms Mayawati’s BSP won 80% seats in the recently concluded UP Panchayat
elections. Now after the dreaded DEMONetisation of Murderer of
democratic institutions (Modi) and the jathi Familywadi Party (SP) which
has created law and order problems, BSP will win all the seats to
comeback in the state and to implement Sarvajan Hitay Saravjan Sukhay
i.e., for welfare, happiness and peace for all societies.
She has got full support of Sarvajan Samaj including SC/STs/OBCs/Minorities and the Upper castes.
Because Modi distorted the EVM in 2014 Lok Sabha elections he gobbled the Master Key.
Since Mayawati gave the best governance as CM of UP, she became
eligible to be the next PM. This was not tolerated by the congress. So
they tampered the EVMs in favour of SP in 2012.
Now the whole world is aware of the fact that the EVMs could be tampered , distorted and rigged.
Because of this awareness the BSP will win all the seats.
All other parties after the 7th phase will loose their face and get retired from politics and a permanent break for all.
said: “I can face two battalions but not two scribes”. Today the
scribes are the worst corrupted criminals who are renumerated by the
murderer of democratic institutions (Modi) Though the Bahuth Jiyadha
Psychopaths referred to the media as PRESSTITUTE, fearing IT raid on
them they are loyal to their customers.
hope the BJP takes a huge political hit in UP. Under Modi, India has
become an even less tolerant society as we see the rise of Hindu
nationalism and increased persecution of minorities. India desperately
needs to get rid of this government at the next general election.
10 Inflaming vs. 10 Anti-Inflammation Foods!
Inflammation is a condition in which a part of the body shows symptoms
of becoming red, swollen, hot and most of the time - painful. This is
caused as a reaction to injury or infection. We can see inflammation
when it’s on the outside of the body. But what about internal
inflammation? This can be caused by any number of reasons. One way to
combat it and your quality of life is to eat a lot of foods that fight
inflammation from inside the body.
For this reason, it is important to know which foods help you fight inflammation, and which are the cause of it.
10 foods That Cause Inflammation
1. Sugar - It’s incredibly hard to avoid sugar, it’s simply everywhere.
Still, try to limit your intake of food filled with processed sugar,
and go for sweet fruit instead.
2. Common Cooking Oils -
Safflower, soy, sunflower, corn, and cottonseed. These oils not only
contribute to the onset of inflammation, but they are also made with
cheap, unhealthy ingredients.
3. Trans Fats - Trans fats increase
bad cholesterol, promote inflammation, obesity and resistance to
insulin. They are in fried foods, fast foods, commercially baked goods,
such as peanut butter and items prepared with partially hydrogenated
oil, margarine and vegetable oil.
4. Red and Processed
Meat - Red meat contains a molecule that humans don’t naturally produce
called Neu5GC. Once you ingest this compound, your body develops
antibodies which may trigger constant inflammatory responses. Reduce red
meat consumption and replace with poultry, fish and learn cuts of red
meat, once a week at most.
5. Feedlot-Raised Meat - Animals who
are fed with grains like soy and corn contain high inflammation. These
animals also gain excess fat and are injected with hormones and
antibiotics. Always opt for organic, free-range meats that have been fed
6. Dairy - While some yogurts are ok, the body
has a hard time processing dairy products. Milk is a common allergen
that may cause inflammation, stomach problems, skin rashes, hives and
even breathing difficulties. Remember, milk is good for children but not
as great for adults.
7. Alcohol - Regular consumption of alcohol causes irritation and inflammation to numerous organs, which can lead to cancer.
8. Refined Grains - “Refined” products have no fiber and have a high
glycemic index. They are everywhere: white rice, white flour, white
bread, pasta, pastries… Try and replace with minimally processed
9. Artificial Food Additives - Aspartame and MSG are two
common food additives that can trigger inflammation responses. Try and
omit it completely from your diet.
10. Undiagnosed Allergy - Do
you constantly have headaches or feel tired? Sometimes, you may develop
an allergy to a type of food and not even know it. Coffee, certain
vegetables, cheese… there might be a trigger you aren’t even aware of.
Try and take a few foods out to see how you feel and slowly incorporate
them back in to see if there might be a hidden culprit lurking in your
10 Foods that are naturally anti-inflammation
1. Salmon - Salmon contains the Omega 3 amino acids and has been known
to treat a numbers of health issues. If you don’t like eating fish, you
can try a good, high-quality supplement. Try and integrate fish oil or
oily fish into your meals twice a week to enjoy its advantages.
2. Garlic - Although garlic is more well known, research is actually a
bit more inconsistent about its benefits. But it can help reduce
inflammation, control blood sugar and fight infections.
Virgin Olive Oil - This oil has been the key to long living in the
Mediterranean cultures for hundreds of years. The oil provides healthy
amounts of anti-inflammation fats and can lower the risk of asthma and
arthritis, as well as protect the heart and blood vessels.
Sweet Potato - Complex carbs, beta-carotene, vitamins B6 and C and fiber
- these potatoes will work to heal inflammation raging through the
5. Blueberries - These berries not only fight inflammation,
but are also an excellent anti-aging agent for the brain and, above
all, fight diseases like cancer and dementia.
Tip: Best to go for organic berries, as their small size makes it hard to wash away the pesticides.
6. Kelp - This brow algae extract has important roles to play in the
prevention and fight against liver and lung cancer. It also is a strong
anti-inflammation agent, anti-tumor, and antioxidant. This one does it
all. Good sources for kelp are Kombu, wakame, and arame.
Ginger - Regular ginger contains a multitude of potential health
benefits. It fights inflammation, it helps control your blood sugar
levels, and as a tea - it’s really good for your diet.
Turmeric - Researches cannot stop talking about this powerful spice from
Asia that is a strong contender in the anti-inflammatory ring, thanks
to its active ingredient - curcumin. This strong ingredient is believed
to also fight the development of Alzheimer’s disease, counter heart
problems, and act as a natural pain reliever.
9. Green tea -
There are few things more proven and more healthy than green tea. It
contains anti-inflammatory flavonoids to such an extent that drinking it
actually lowers the risk of certain cancers.
Cruciferous Vegetables - Broccoli, brussels sprouts, kale, and
cauliflower are all vegetables filled with high amounts of antioxidants.
They are considered natural detoxifiers and rid the body of harmful
materials that may do it damage.
8 Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water!
Ask most people how they feel about lemons and they will either pucker
their lips or insist that the yellow fruit’s only place is in lemonade.
Yet little do many know, lemons are some of the most nutrient-rich and
healthy fruits out there that can be used to ease a wide variety of
ailments. Here is a list of a few ways that lemon juice can transform
your bodily health, for the short-term and the long-term!
1. Boosts Your Immune System
Lemons are rich in vitamin C, B, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium
and fiber. Although vitamin C is the key to jump-starting our immune
system, the rest of the nutritional benefits of the lemon can certainly
do you no harm. It’s good to drink a glass or two of lemon water when
you are feeling stressed, because that is when your immune system is
most likely to fall weak to any surrounding bacteria or viruses.
2. A Surprising Source of Potassium
Potassium is good for your heart health as well as your brain and nerve
function. It is usually found in vegetables like potatoes and spinach,
but lemons are also an excellent source for a potassium boost.
3. Eases Your Digestion
Lemon water should be drunk at room temperature as warm water helps
stimulate smooth movement within the gastrointestinal tract. Lemons and
other citrus fruits contribute to this effect because they are high in
vitamins and minerals that loosen up the toxins in the digestive tract,
known as ama. Lemon is an excellent natural remedy for symptoms of
indigestion like heartburn and bloating.
4. A Natural Diuretic
Lemons increase the rate of urination and therefore are able to quickly
remove toxins in the digestive tract that can affect the health of the
5. Keeps Your Skin Clear
The potent vitamin C
in lemons helps keep the skin blemish and wrinkle-free. In addition the
antioxidants in lemon juice can be applied to scars and age spots in
order to reduce their appearance without diminishing the skin’s
6. Reduces Inflammation
Drinking lemon water on a
regular basis may decrease the levels of acidity within the body, which
is where disease is most likely to occur. It works to remove uric acid
in the joints which is the main source for joint pain and inflammation.
It’s best to drink the lemon water in the winter at a lukewarm
temperature to fight off the effects of cold-weather stiffness.
7. A Caffeine Aid
Lemon juice is an excellent way to cut back on caffeine in coffee or
soda because it has similar rejuvenating effects. Substituting your
morning cup of joe for a cup of hot water and lemon may save you from an
afternoon crash and quiet your caffeine cravings.
8. Keeps You Hydrated
Starting your day off with a cup of hot lemon water can not only
prevent fatigue later on in the day, but also dehydration. Dehydration
is one of the major causes of toxic buildup, stress and even
susceptibility to viral infections. So if you are the kind that forgets
to drink water, it is recommended that you drink lemon water in order to
stay hydrated throughout the day.
Heal Your Eyesight with the Power of Palming!
“Palming is definitely one of the most important exercises you can do
to improve your vision. Actually, palming isn’t really an exercise, it’s
more of a non-exercise! I’ll explain… Palming was re-discovered by
William H. Bates, M.D. in the early 1900’s. Before this, the ancient
Indian Yogis and Chinese Taoist practiced eye palming techniques for
thousands of years. They “palmed” their eyes as a form of meditation or
inner visualization and relaxation.
Very basically, Palming is simply the act of gently ‘cupping’ both palms over the eyes, blocking out as much light as possible.
Palming is one of the most important methods for relaxing eye muscles
and eye nerves. When the eye muscles get stressed or strained, lazy, and
bent out of shape, so does the eye. This also affects the lenses in
your eye, and your vision. Any body builder, professional athlete, coach
or physical therapist will tell you, that one of the most important
aspects of muscle conditioning, is relaxation. When the muscles relax,
they begin to function as they are supposed to, at peak performance.
But what does this mean to you? Simple… more relaxed eyes = better vision!
The Masters say that ‘too much outward gazing at all the ‘exciting’ and
fast-moving things in the world, upsets the inner balance of our
‘spiritual third eye’. The physical eyes and brain become clouded,
confused and agitated, like a muddy stream. Palming calms the mind,
emotions, spirit and body. This allows the inner and outer eyes take on
the qualities of a clear, tranquil and peaceful pool of water. When your
mind and emotions are tranquil, your eyes can focus on the outer world
with clarity and insight.’
In addition to this calming
effect, many believe that during palming, healing energy passes through
the palms of your hands into your eyes. If you’re a sensitive person,
and you relax and concentrate a little, you’ll actually be able to feel
this happening, and you can even magnify the effect by using your intent
or imagination. You’ll find you can ‘pull’ energy from your hands with
your eyes, or you can intentionally send healing energy from your hands
into your eyes. Sometimes, this energy feels warm and soothing,
sometimes it feels a little cool and prickly, sometimes it feels
expansive and magnetic!
The fact is PALMING WORKS. More than that… this could be THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT EXERCISE TO HELP YOU GET YOUR SIGHT BACK!
Tips and Techniques to improve your Palming Effectiveness: Rub your
hands together. Before you start your palming, rub your hands together
for 10-20 seconds very vigorously. This is a technique used by energy
healer bring healing energy into the hands, which you can then pass into
the eyes. If you don’t believe in ‘healing energy, then just see it as
getting some heat into the hands, which feels nice on the eyes and helps
them relax more. You can make this even more effective, by using your
intention and imagination to send healing energy to your hands when you
rub them together.
Get into the habit of palming many times during the day, whenever you have a few spare moments.
Unlike some of the eye exercises you aren’t going to overdo it. You can
palm for hours each day if you really want, it won’t harm your eyes, it
will only help them.”
