It is basically a simple mantra, but much more important is the link that is established. In Buddhist terms you can say empowerment. You can go and read any book and stand on your head and practice anything you like, but without an empowerment it's not possible, so it's like this, similar. So, they have an initiation I had not taken. I had spent years in different parts of the Ramakrishna Mission but I had not taken initiation.
For some reason, it didn't work. I went once, and something happened, I had to be posted out, and so on. I knew some very senior monks, I knew the president who was a very great man, but in that time I couldn't get initiation. He asked, "You've not been initiated right?
The rule has just been changed, I can initiate.

Why do you ask Swamiji? This is a mind, an expanded mind. So I have met so many people like this. I met the people that belong to complete dualism, like the Madwas -- it doesn't matter, these are all different strands. The most important thing I understand as much as I know is that you should be sincerely seeking after something and accept nothing but the best.
To seek, first you need to follow rules and regulations and develop a compassionate mind. I don't think the mind can be purified by sitting for an hour quietly, or ten hours, or half a minute. Well, you can become aware of your mind, of course, mindfulness. But you have to practically act in a kind way, not just theorize about that. In fact, among the Jains, Ahimsa is a physical act, not a philosophy. They say the greatest dharma is nonviolence.
Mahavira said, "Every living being loves his or her life, and you have no right to take it. This kindness, Ahimsa, now that is Jain. In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, there is not even a God mentioned, there is no Iswhara, nothing is mentioned. First stanza The stopping of, the clearing of the distractions of the mindstuff is yoga.
So what is the first rule to be followed? I hope you all know that Yoga is called Asthanga Yoga in it's orthodox sense of the term which Patanjali wrote. This reminds me, once in Wisconsin I went to address an Asthanga Yoga circle. I thought to open we should ask a question, so I said, "I am sure you know who is the founder of Ashthanga Yoga? Well, he was a great teacher, no question about that. So, even in Sankhya, in Yoga, in all modes of philosophy, you may say that you cannot dissolve and there is only the supreme being, nondual.
Everybody agrees that you have to evolve. Everybody agrees that you have to become less selfish. Everybody agrees that you shouldn't harm others. After that, when your mind is purified, you can decide. Once, one person came to Babaji, my Guru Babaji, Maheshwarnath Babaji, and he was an Vaishnavite, you know how the orthodox Vaishnavaite like ISKCON for instance, has markings vertical lines on forehead , came and said, Babaji, I know you are a great being, but according to you who is the supreme God — Vishnu or Shiva?
I want to have the Dharsan of the lord. So finally when you develop and when you see the head, then you can see if the mark is this way or this way vertical or horizontal Why are you discussing this now? To develop, to move forward. Your life has this quality of an untiring mind, that you continue to serve, even to think of doing a country-wide walk at the age of In your autobiography you had this moment where you heard an inner voice say, "follow the Bodhisattva path. Can you share more of your understanding of the Bodhisattva path?
The Sutrayana, also known as Theravada Buddhists, don't have a concept of a Bodhisattva. One attains perfection and becomes and Arahat. Arahant means perfected being. One who has touched nirvana has become an Arahant. Even the Jains pray to such a one. The Bodhisattva concept is that one has crossed over, almost.

One foot is on the other side of the border, the other is here. It's not as if you haven't touched the other side. It's not that you have given that up. It is there, because without that basis it is tricky. So one foot is there. What the Buddhist scriptures say, one who has crossed on the other shore has not fully crossed, he hesitates, he says "My God, there are so many people suffering, let me go back and take a few with me, at least. So may I feel the thankfulness for looking after me, and take them also to nirvana. When such people decide to keep their complete nirvana in a kind of a closed door with a key, and decide to do serve, they don't lose energy.
How can you lose energy? Because you are working from the source of all energy. It is not as if you are giving away something and it is exhausted. If I have ten pens and I give away nine, when I come to the tenth one, I would hesitate and say, "Oh there is only one left. There is nothing to hold on to. You get what I mean? Since there is hardly any self-centeredness — there is a little bit of course, since the human body is there — there is no loss of energy. There is no loss of vitality. It's still quite ok.

I had thebrazilian blowout done and had a very bad experience.. This damaged my hair really bad.. Does anyone know what I can use to get the treatment out of my hair? And my hair looks awful.. I just want it out.. I had that experience with going to a cheaper salon for a Japanese hair straightening.

Hi, I have just purchased and put in the Brazilian Keratin treatment by Organix from the drug store.
I think I put too much in because even with blow drying and flat ironing it does not want to dry like if I put grease in sometimes I am white, but have very thick naturally wavy hair. I noticed my ends frying and looking frizzled from the heat. I am hoping mine will be like that but I just want to wash some of it out and then maybe try ironing it again without so much of it in. Now I do, for me it means use less than half of the bottle because my hair is not even shoulder length and though it practically absorbs the stuff, it is very hard to get it dry with too much of it in.
I also bought the Organix shampoo and conditioner so I will use that. However, I have well water and use a water softener so I am hoping the salt in my water is not going to mess things up…. I had no idea that you can buy a kit from the drug store. Do let us know how it goes after you wash it. Was it expensive? Hi there! I have a water softener actually.

Go to an actual Korean or Japanese salon to get it done, not a high-end Beverly Hills type salon. I have to say I love Japanese straightening because its permanent, makes hair easy to manage, is fermaldehyde-free and you can any products with it. The only reason I switched to Brazilian is because I wanted more body and the ability to hold curl and wave more easily.

My hair has always frizzed after styling in damp weather, fog, humidity… I think it still has some of that and I still need to use oil on my hair for blowdrying.
I am using Kerastase oils, but yesterday used Morrocan Oil for fine hair. Loreal the maker of the Kerastase line also makes Sufate free Shampoos and Conditioners on the cheap. Very Emollient and very nice products for the price. My favorite is the Smoothing shampoo and conditioner. They are very kind to fine hair and help keep it intact for blowdrying. I find I still have to take care of my hair with softening products but like the added smoothness following my blowdry.
My hair just looks longer and fuller. There is a great book out, Curly Girl, on various ways of caring for wavy, curly hair. They also have a website and this website also supportys local salons that focus on the curly hair. I recently read that adding oil to shampoo helps soften the hair and add shine. One of the oils recomended is Coconut which I have been using on my skin. It is great and increases the lather in the shampoo! I still need the extra part of conditioning but this has been a boon.
Hi everyone, I got the cappola keratin blow out express done last Friday.
I immediately fell in love with my new hair the day it was done. The first day I washed it, it was ok. I blow dried it and it was kind of frizzy, but it only took about 15 mins to flat iron compared to the hour it used to take. It was a little less curly than natural but still frizzy. And this time it took a half hour to flat iron. Idk if it is because I got the express done and not the 6 month treatment?
