My Covid Vaccine Shot Experience In India – I Got My First Covid Injection Today

I got my first covid vaccine shot (injection) today (April 22, 2022) at Dehu Road Cantonment Hospital In Pune, Maharashtra, India. I first registered myself for the Vaccine on Cowin website on April 21, 2022. I was given a time slot of 11 AM to 1 PM. As I always faced problems in the government given time slots I went early at 8 AM to find out actually what is happening. Aadhar card and a mobile number is a must for getting vaccinated. I did not pay any money for the vaccination. Five elderly people had arrived for taking the shots. What was so encouraging to see that some of them were accompanied by their grandchildren. The grandchildren were standing in the queue and helping them out with registration. So I waited there. Slowly people started trickling in and by 9:00 AM there were around 25 people for taking shots mostly elderly. Dehu Road Cantonment Hospital in Pune is a hospital which most middle class Indians avoid. There is a wrong notion that it is unclean and not fit for

One Rupee Coin Totka Performed By Some Hindus

In Kali Yuga, the present age, as per Hinduism teachings human beings will do anything for the fulfillment of their desires. They will believe in all kinds of superstition and false deities. One rupee coin totka is performed by some Hindu communities who face constant problems in house – especially accidents and repairs. Totka is a small process performed to overcome difficulties in life by Hindus. If a person in the house is facing health issues constantly then take some sendha namak in a bowl and place a one rupee coin atop it. Circle the bowl seven times around the person and throw the salt and coin in a deserted area (where people go very rarely). It is believed that this will remove all kinds of evil eye and negative forces that were affecting the person. Yet another totka using one rupee coin is to keep it under the bed.

Bhagavad Gita Chapter 12 Verse 8

Fix your heart on Me alone and rest your understanding in Me; thus shall you doubtlessly live in Me here after. (Bhagavad Gita chapter 12 verse 8) The bhaktas feel that they have nothing to do for themselves, but certain charges are laid upon them by the Lord, which they must fulfill. Work can have dangerous effects. But there is a way in which work can be done without the evil effect of causing more bondage. And that is by renouncing the fruit of our labour, by consecrating our work to God. Therefore Sri Krishna said: “Surrender all actions to Me.” And in this verse, Sri Krishna gives another very important instruction: ‘Fix your heart on Me alone and rest your understanding in Me; then surely shall you live in Me hereafter.” Manas and buddhi, that is, mind and understanding, must reach out to God. All our thoughts, our purposes, our determination and reasoning should have the deity for the goal. That is called ‘resting in Bhagvan.’ Our thoughts reach out to God; we try
