Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “In yoga Steya (stealing) is one of our intrinsic natural tendencies, just like Himsa (violence), and lying. If we get something, we take it even if it is not needed. If we find an unclaimed thousand rupee note on the road, we will take it and consider it as a gift from God. This tendency is there even in animals and insects. If an ant is carrying a piece of sugar and we shoo it away, it leaves the sugar and goes away. Another ant will come and take that piece of sugar. However, a human being can at least think and know that he doesn’t need something he has found, that he has enough. This is only possible when the person has some philosophy or understanding. A very wise mind in needed to think this way.

Check this out on Chirbit Q. Why do we get greedy? Dr. J: That is our natural tendency. A child also is greedy, even though very young. Smt. H: We are born with ignorance. And with ignorance, we develop wrong value systems. And this greed is also one of those things. Q. How to conquer fear of a bad future? Dr. J: Consult an astrologer. Smt. H: Why are we breaking our heads by thinking about the future? Let us learn to be in the present. Right now, the present is in my hands, let me work hard and make myself better and better Stop thinking about the future. Plan, but live in the present. Don’t allow your mind to run too much into something which is not there, something you don’t know about.

YOGA AND SINUSITIS Dr. P.B. Rajput. There are about a dozen air sinuses in the human skull. Most of these are so placed that they drain out in the nasal cavity by gravity only. The large maxillary sinus has disadvantage; its ostium is small and is placed in such a place that any defect in nasal cavity (e.g. defects in mucosal lining, middle turbinate or nasal septum) will lead to closure. Thus the maxillary sinus for its normal functioning requires two things (1) good ventilation and (2) good blood supply to maintain cilliary function. So it is that this maxillary sinus in return depends on healthily maintaining nasal cavity. Any defect in the nasal cavity, either due to deviated nasal septum, hypertrophy of middle turbinate or mucosal collection will lead to proper ventilation of the nasal cavity which in turn will lead to maxillary ostium. Repeatedly poor drainage will leas to change of ciliated epithelium pattern. Mucosal lining of nasal and paranasal sinuses are under the supreme control of the sphenopalatine ganglia, which in turn is a part of the parasympathetic (autonomous) system. Infection, allergy, tension and emotions are the important factors controlling Mucosa.
