Hello! I am back from years in the past 😅

Due to the tight real-life schedule and fewer writers again we aren't having a good issue of the newsletter. I hope this will get upvoted. We will be back with a better issue soon.
Thanking you,

A Small Goodbye Letter

Written by Indusse

Well... I have something to say to all of you here. It's been quiet a some time but still I am not able to keep it with me. So, there has been a big deal all around India and it's Indian/Hindu Nationalism behaviour. There has been a lot of destruction and failure in the region due to the topic addressed. I hereby agrees that everything happened just because of me and yes, saying sorry is not going to get us what we have lost. When Hindu Puri was the delegate of the region, the Government then imposed Hindutva as the region's official ideology and it remained as one till the end of his reign. I was opposing that decision then, but most of you including those who are slowly moving against what happened right now supported the regional Ideology then. I have never imposed any ideology as the region's official ideology still, when I slowly leaned to the right wing everyone started attacking me. The Leftist says "You are a wretched right wing fascist, get away from me.", Whereas some of the right wing says "You are a complete Commie, get Lost." This isn't just what I'm facing, but most of the so-called Centrists face this. Well, I would like to say that I will be resigning from my Delegate post after the new constitution is adopted and the elections are done. It seems I have been a failure, no.. I am a failure. So, anyone can stand for the delegate elections when it's been announced, let it be a leftist or a rightwing nationalist. I'm not going to say anything, elect whom you want to and obey what they say. I will be still around in the region and yes, will be enjoying minimal power as the founder. If you find that someone is misusing the power even if it's me you can bring it up to the founder. Well, after the new leader is been elected I want them to continue with the sports events, The Monthly Tabloid Newsletter, Podcasts, Roleplays and Events. No one should find themselves isolated here. Try not be rude and hyper reactive. Try to act mature and don't get angry for every small thing. Don't eject or ban your opponents or misuse the power. I will be ending this post, by wishing whoever succeeds me All the best.

Regards,
Indusse

Decoding the Vedas
Part I: The Human Mind

Written by Whole India

The human mind is the thing that can be explored and many possibilities can become reality, but modern science is either ignoring it or has no intentions of considering it. The human mind has 16 dimensions! Psychology has reached this knowledge to some extent but not completely. Today we will be exploring these all dimensions from top to bottom. These 16 dimensions can be categorized into 4 mains. They are ‘buddhi (intellect)’, ‘Ahankara (identity)’, ‘Manas (Memory)’, ‘Chitta (Intelligence without memory, cosmic intelligence)’. These all dimensions together are also referred to as ‘Antahkarana (the inner cause)’.

Now you do have an overview of all, however, we digging more in-depth. The first layer of the human mind is buddhi (intellect). Buddhi is a sharp thing. When someone asks you do you want sharp intellect or blunt your answer will be sharp in the same manner is our buddhi. It’s a sharp tool. It can only cut things and you can’t use a knife to stitch in the same way you can’t use your intellect for everything. Logic doesn’t work everywhere. If you can think a little better than someone else, it is considered intelligence today. If someone says one thing and you can say ten things to that, you may be socially smart, but you are not any more intelligent. Unfortunately, in today’s systems of education and academics, everything is determined by this. If you can make more things out of it, you are considered intelligent, which is not true – you only have sharper buddhi. The buddhi will not take you beyond limits in any way, because it can only function based on the data that is already there. It is not capable of accessing anything beyond that.

The next layer of the human mind is ‘manas’. Manas has many layers to it. But manas is not just the brain – it is right across the body. Every cell in the body has a phenomenal memory – not just of this life but of millions of years. Your body clearly remembers how your forefathers were a million years ago. In every cell in the body, there is memory and intelligence, but no intellect. Intellect is only in the brain. Hence, when a man eats an apple the apple becomes a man and not a woman because the body has a certain memory and not the apple. In the English language, everything comes under one banner called “mind.” The idea that intelligence is only in the brain has produced human beings whose consciousness is seriously constipated. What is in the brain is intellect, not intelligence. Intelligence and memory are right across your body. But people have never been trained on how to use this intelligence. Instead, they use their intellect for everything. No wonder they are stressed out whatever job you give them. The whole weight is on only one dimension of the mind out of sixteen. It is like loading a sixteen-wheeler truck and trying to drive on only one wheel – you can imagine the stress! That is what today’s world is going through. People may be using other dimensions of the mind marginally, unconsciously, but they are not trained to use them. They have only been trained to use their buddhi or intellect. They are very smart. They know everything about everything, but they do not know how to figure their own life. They do not even know how to sit here peacefully and at total ease within themselves. If there is true intelligence, the first thing that you need to figure out is how to make life happen. You know how to make the world happen, but you do not know how to make your life happen. You do not know how to conduct your mind, your energies, your emotions or your body. If you ask people to become fit, they become tight. If you ask them to live in a more natural way, they become fat. Where is the intelligence? There is only intellect. Intellect looks good only in comparison. Suppose you are the only person on the planet, your intellect will not mean anything. Only because there are a few idiots around you, you shine. By itself, intellect will not be of any consequence.

The next layer of the human mind is Ahankara which is translated as ego but it is more than ego. From where do you get ego? You get it from your identity. Ahankara gives you a sense of identity. Once your ahankara takes on an identity, your intellect functions only in that context. It is important to function beyond the intellect because the intellect is seriously enslaved to your identity. Your intellect revolves around your identity. Your identity is a boundary that is set by you and your intellect makes sure you don’t cross the boundary. Our identities, such as belonging to a certain nation, community, or whatever else, are necessary for our survival in a particular society. But you cannot think beyond this because you are functioning only from your intellect, and the intellect takes its sustenance from ahankara. Only along the axis of ahankara, the intellect can function. The intellect cannot transcend this, because that is its nature. But there are other ways to know life beyond the identities we have taken on for our survival in the world. That’s why the first thing we need to realize is first we are human and not a rightist or leftist or socialist or capitalist. When we can transcend these ideologies, religions, castes and be human first that moment we have won a big trophy, but don’t be happy now the journey just begins. The larger the identity you have the better it is. That’s why in this culture students before education began students were told to say, “Aham Bramhasmi” which means I identify myself with the cosmos. And students were taught the same thing until all learned it so that the intellect doesn’t start corrupting things.

The last layer of the human mind is the chitta. Chitta is mind without memory – pure intelligence. This intelligence is like cosmic intelligence – simply there. Everything happens because of that. It does not function out of memory – it simply functions. In a way, what you call the cosmos is a living mind, not in the sense of intellect but in the sense of Chitta. Chitta is the last point of the mind. It connects to the basis of creation within you. It connects you with your consciousness. Chitta is always on – whether you are awake or asleep. Your intellect comes on and goes off. Many times it fails, even when you are awake. If Chitta or the intelligence within you was not always on, you could not stay alive. Try to conduct your breath with your intellect – you will go crazy. Chitta is keeping you alive, keeping you going, making life happen. If you touch this dimension of your mind, which is the linking point to one’s consciousness, you do not even have to wish for anything, you do not have to dream of anything – the best possible thing that can happen to you will anyway happen. Your Chitta is your destiny, if you get it then it is a great achievement. You can even be the master of your destiny. There is a yoga offered by Isha foundation known as Chitta Shakti, by it, you can be the master of your destiny, Keep in mind it’s a powerful tool use it wisely.
