Madhya Marga In Yoga – Middle Channel For The Flow Of Vital Air

 Madhya means ‘the middle’ and marga is a way or path. Madhya marga is the middle channel for the low of vital air. In the human body there are two paths going downward through the nostrils, one on the left side and the other on the right. In Yoga, the left channel is called ida nadi, Chandra nadi or vama nadi, and the right channel is called the pingala, surya nadi or dakshina nadi. The vital air called apana is supposed to flow along the 2000 nadis in the human body. Through them, ten vital airs (vayus) flow and these supply the energy required for life. But these channels are not fully open; they are clogged by accumulation of impurities. Pranayama is the means for removal of these impurities. By practicing pranayama, the nadis are said to become free for the flow of vayu through them. An important development that takes place by the prolonged and intense practice of pranayama is the opening of the third channel, called the Madhya marga (middle channel), which lies between the ida

Madhuvana – Garden In Ramayana

Madhuvana is a garden described in the Ramayana and it was very dear to Sugriva (the king of Kishkindha), who along with his Vanara army including Hanuman had helped in Bhagavan Sri Rama in rescuing Mata Sita. The protection of Madhuvana was assigned to Dadhimukha, uncle of Sugriva. The garden was sarvabhuta manoharam (an eye pleaser for everyone). It was rich with honey, fruits, flowers and other delicious vegetations, and was used by the royal family. One day the garden was raided by monkeys, ecstatic after learning about the location of Mata Sita in Lanka as reported by Hanuman. Under normal circumstances, any trespasser into this vana was subjected to a death sentence by Sugriva. But Sugriva pardoned the atrocity committed by the southward group of monkeys, who had gone in search of Sita. He simply received the complaint of destruction of Madhuvana.

Today Nothing Is Left Of Truth But The Outer Shell

A man of God will say: ‘Be uncompromising in your practice of truth.’ But the man of the world will say: ‘You cannot be uncompromising with truth. If you are always truthful, you cannot get on in the world. You cannot succeed. You have to compromise with truth.’ But the scriptures say: ‘Know the truth, and the truth will make you free.’ Follow truth wherever it leads you. The Upanishads say that the highest Truth or Brahman, your Inner Reality can be realized by the practice of truth. Sri Ramakrishna said that in this age the practice of truth is the greatest help to realize one’s inner Self or God. But a man of the world will find it impossible to believe. And so it goes in the world, compromise after compromise, until nothing is left of truth but the outer shell. All distortion of truth is done in the name of truth.
