Child Hanuman once thought Sun to be reddish fruit in the sky and decided to grab it. Hanuman soon moved towards Sun at an unimaginable speed. At the same time, Rahu Navgraha was also moving towards Sun to cause eclipse.

But Rahu was easily defeated by Hanuman in the race towards sun.
Rahu realized who Hanuman was and gave him the boon that those who worshipped Hanuman with urad dal (black gram) will not face any hardships in his/her horoscope due to the bad position of Rahu.

Yoga can literally alter our DNA for the better – Yoga can Extend your life

Recent studies out of Harvard University and the University of Calgary indicates that Yoga can literally our DNA for the better.

The Calgary study found that practicing yoga can also extend your life. Earthables Writes The researchers discovered that yoga has an epigenetic effect, which means that it alters the expression of the genes without changing the genetic code itself.  Yoga, they said, can positively improve metabolic function on a cellular level, improving the body’s ability to absorb nutrients and prevent the development of chronic diseases.  In addition to the changes in DNA, the researchers found another remarkable change: the body was more resistance to oxidative stress, which is “an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of the body to counteract or detoxify their harmful effects through neutralization by antioxidants.” In more simple terms, that means a body that functions better and has a lower risk for developing disease.

No bit of space is without Godliness – Shirdi Sai Baba

God is present and nothing is superior to Him. God is perfect, unlimited and eternal. God is creator, sustainer and destroyer. God is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient. God is there, take it as truth. God is not there that is false.

No bit of space is without Godliness.

The world is the manifestation of God’s own form and nothing else. This world was created by God, so it is our duty to enjoy and appreciate its beauty. Earth supports the seed. Clouds spray rain over them, Sun makes the see sprout and grow. Earth, clouds, and sun coordinate in this game and play in all directions.
Each and every action is God, every single thought is God, every impulse is God and every feeling is God.
– Shirdi Sai Baba
