Kuta Tapasvi – Fake Yogi

A tapasvi is a holy person who attains spiritual powers by leading a life of austerity and tapas (penance). Kuta Tapasvi is a person who pretends to be a tapasvi but in reality is very far from it. In the field of Yoga we sometimes come across rogues who cheat others, with false promises or tall claims. Such deceptive gurus are described as Kuta Tapasvi. Daksha Smriti (VII 37-38) describes fake yogis in this way: “They go on discussing how they extract money from men in power like government officers and administrators, how they earn favors from the rulers under various pretexts. Among those who come into their contact, they spread envy and conflict. They encourage disciples to flock round them for their own selfish motives.” A Kuta Tapasvi is however the exception rather than the rule. It is because of this, that genuine yogis and spiritual discipline has been cherished for centuries. About such true yogi Daksha Smriti states: The place where a true yogi resides become

Let Us Make All Trees Sacred So That They Are Not Cut

Looking at the alarming rate of deforestation, I feel our forefathers should have made all the trees and plants sacred. This is because people are scared to cut sacred trees. “One needs to take permission from the tree before cutting it. Also the permission of the birds that have made their nest on the tree.” This is no joke but our forefathers did pujas before cutting a tree. There are also several stories related to the ‘tree spirit.’ The whole life of these trees are spent in service. With their leaves, fruits, flowers, branches, roots, fragrance, sap, bark, wood, and finally even their ashes as coal, they exist purely for others. (Srimad Bhagavatam) Kamala Vasudevan writes in Deccan Herald: The sacred dimension of the tree is often represented by the tree growing on the top of the holy mountain, placed at the centre of the universe. Holy waters flow from the mountains nourishing the earth and all living beings, both physically and spiritually. With

We Need To Realize Our Inherent Divinity

From The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda, (Kolkata: Advaita Ashrama, 2013), 1.336–37. - We Need To Realize Our Inherent Divinity  Many years ago, I visited a great sage, a very holy man. We talked of our revealed book, the Vedas… and of revealed books in general. At the close of our talk, this good man asked me to go to the table and take up a book; it was a book which, among other things, contained a forecast of the rainfall during the year. The sage said, ‘Read that.’ And I read out the quantity of rain that was to fall. He said, ‘Now take the book and squeeze it.’ I did so and he said, ‘Why, my boy, not a drop of water comes out. Until the water comes out, it is all book, book. So until your religion makes you realize God, it is useless. He who only studies book for religion reminds one of the fable of the ass which carried a heavy load of sugar on its back, but did not know the sweetness of it.’ Shall we advise men to kneel down and cry, ‘O miserable sinners that we a
