God's Method of Healing from the Bible / From Sickness to Health - Barbara O'Neill

"There are millions of health books and videos out there, but how do we know which one to turn to? Perhaps after all this time it really is best to return to the original health plan set by God! The Bible is the great prescription book for our health. In this spiritually informative health presentation we will look to the Holy Bible and the Ministry of Healing for the best prescriptions for health. We can start by eliminating nasty habits and getting back into natural treatments, which are God’s methods for healing!"

The truth is made political, by liars. Pursuing it makes you controversial. Yogis remain undaunted.

This is America | American Presidential Election | Democracy | Economy | War | Sadhguru || Adiyogi

This is America - Sadhguru talks about Democracy , Economic Challenges, Politics, Discriminations and money invested in billions of Dollars in war.

In response to a question on the United States presidential elections, Sadhguru explains that America’s leadership is important to the whole world. This nation is large enough to embrace the world. It is our responsibility to ask our leaders, “Who is willing to do it?”

Yogi, mystic and visionary, Sadhguru is a spiritual master with a difference. An arresting blend of profundity and pragmatism, his life and work serves as a reminder that yoga is a contemporary science, vitally relevant to our times.

Aryan Invasion/Migration: Fact or Myth? | Abhijit Chavda | #SangamTalks| Out of India Theory

In this talk, Abhijit Chavda examines the history, core premise and main claims of the Aryan Invasion/Migration theory. He demonstrates how multidisciplinary empirical evidence from the fields of archaeology, literature, linguistics, geology, hydrology, mythology and genetics, among others, forms a consistent, repeated and predictable pattern that debunks every iteration of this theory and instead consistently supports the Out of India theory. He explains how a global neo-colonial nexus keeps the Aryan Invasion Myth alive via the power of propaganda, and outlines the steps India needs to take going forward in order to empower its citizens to discover their true history and heritage. About the Speaker: Abhijit Chavda is a theoretical physicist, technologist, and writer.

If you factor in the maturity of Indus Brahmaic culture, compared to that from the West, it isn't hard to believe it is more than 10,000 years older than Judaic religions and culture. Or that Western scholars would tend to want to make 'abrahmaic' cultures out to be the world's oldest.

The discovery of the underwater city of Krishna’s Dvaraka in Western India has shaped the trajectory of study of the historicity of Mahabharata, and particularly of Shri Krishna. The scientific underwater excavations conducted by Dr. S.R.Rao, from 1981 to 1995, with 14 cruises to Dvaraka and 11 to Bet Dvaraka has been acknowledged world- wide. The talk examines the problems faced, the types of artifacts discovered, the integrated method, analysis, interpretation, the challenges that the site faces today and what can be done for its preservation and conservation today.

About the Speaker: Nalini Rao, is Prof. of World Art in Soka University, USA, and Chairperson of S.R.Rao Foundation. Her publications include Sindhu-Sarasvati Civlilization, Royal Imagery and Networks of Power at Vijayanagara, The Hindu Monastery in South India, Lexington Books, 2020 (forthcoming).

"Many non-Vedic beliefs and practices have crept into the Vedic tradition in the last 200 years. As a result, many of the theological foundations that are often ascribed to the Vedic tradition today do not reflect traditional and legitimate Sanatana Dharma at all, but must be categorized as Neo-Hindu. These highly debilitating, non-Vedic speculations have altered the way in which Sanatana Dharma is now understood by many spiritual seekers and have led to immense confusion. In this incisive interview, Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya (one of the world's most authentic and qualified Vedic gurus) explains the difference between the authentic tradition of Sanatana Dharma, that is found in the Vedic scriptures and the teachings of the rishis, versus the very modern and philosophically contaminated religion of Neo-Hinduism."

Sadhguru, a yogi and profound mystic of our times, is a visionary humanitarian and a prominent spiritual leader. A contemporary Guru, rooted as strongly in mundane and pragmatic matters as he is in inner experience and wisdom, Sadhguru works tirelessly towards the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of all. His mastery of the mechanisms of life, an outcome of his profound experience of the Self, guides in exploring the subtler dimensions of life.

Dharma and Abrahamism represent two opposite sides of the theological spectrum. As followers of Sanatana Dharma, we are not Christians. Despite this fact, however, all well-known Vedic gurus (including Prabhupada) have recognized the sage Jesus (Isha Putra) to have been an accomplished Yogi and a Dharma Master. In this pre-Christmas season discourse, the Vedic guru Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya discusses the Vedic Jesus, as revealed in one of the Vedic scriptures - Bhavishya Purana.

This will be an hour long talk. Please note that: There will not be a Q&A session this week. Rather, our next livestream on December 21st will consist of an entire hour of questions and answers. Please save your questions for next week. “[Isha Putra (Jesus) declared] Please hear, Oh king, which Dharmic principles I have established among the barbarians (mlecchas). The living entity is subject to good and bad contaminations.

The mind should be purified by taking recourse of proper conduct and the performance of meditation on the chanting of the holy names of God (japa). By chanting the holy names one attains the highest purity. Just as the immovable sun attracts the elements of all living beings from all directions, in the same way the Lord (Narayana) of the Surya Mandala [solar realm], who is fixed and all-attractive, attracts the hearts of all living creatures. Thus, by following spiritual principles, speaking truthful words, by mental harmony and by meditation, Oh descendant of Manu, one should worship that immovable Lord.” (Bhavishya Purana, Chaturyuga Khanda Dvitiyadhyayah, 19.27-29)

Is there one Supreme God in Hinduism like in Christiantity, Islam and Judaism? What is reincarnation & karma? What does Hinduism offer to environmental protection? Why so many Hindus are vegetarians? Is there only one "true religion"? Who has created the world? What is mantra meditation? Is there an eternal spiritual soul? Do I have to be Indian to practice Hinduism? Is there heaven & hell?
