The method presented in this e-book is easy to put into practice. No specialized equipment is required, and everyone can quickly assess how effective it is.

  • Dying: What Happens When We Die? - A Selection from Waking Dreaming Being: Self and Consciousness in Neuroscience Meditation and Philosophy - cover

    Dying: What Happens When We Die?...

    In the ancient Indian epic, Mahabharata, the Lord of Death asks, "What is the most wondrous thing in the world?", and his son answers, "It is that all around us people can be dying and we don't believe it can happen to us." This refusal to face the inevitability of death is especially prevalent in modern Western societies. We look to science to tell us how things are but biomedicine and neuroscience divest death of any personal significance by presenting it as just the breakdown of the body and the cessation of consciousness. The Tibetan Buddhist perspective stands in sharp contrast to this modern scientific notion of death. This tradition conceives dying not as the mere termination of living processes within the body, but as a rite of passage and transformation of consciousness. Physical death, in this tradition, initiates a transition from one of the six bardos ("in-between states") of consciousness to an opportunity for total enlightenment. In Dying: What Happens When We Die?, Evan Thompson establishes a middle ground between the depersonalized, scientific account of death and the highly ritualized notion of death found in Tibetan Buddhism. Thompson's depiction of death and dying offers an insightful neurobiological analysis while also delving into the phenomenology of death, examining the psychological and spiritual effects of dying on human consciousness. In a trenchant critique of the near-death experience literature, he shows that these experiences do not provide evidence for the continuation of consciousness after death, but also that they must be understood phenomenologically and not in purely neuroscience terms. We must learn to tolerate the "ultimate ungraspability of death" by bearing witness to dying and death instead of turning away from them. We can learn to face the experience of dying through meditative practice, and to view the final moments of life not as a frightening inevitability to be shunned or ignored, but as a deeply personal experience to be accepted and even embraced.

    Breasts grow naturally during puberty and can change throughout the course of your life. They usually start developing when you’re between the ages of 8 and 13, but they can continue to grow into your early twenties and can change size and shape due to age, weight and pregnancy.[1] Although the size of breasts is mostly determined by your DNA, other factors, such as weight, muscle mass, and age, can affect their appearance. Although the best solution is to wait and give your breasts time to grow, you can also try a few different methods to enhance them naturally, including eating certain foods and doing particular exercises.

    Tojik-Indian Yoga Secrets -...

    The book has got four parts. The first one is basically autobiographical with a view to bring home the readers how Abdul Vahab Sobirov, a Muslim by birth gets so much engrossed in a system he would hardly get any support from his tradition. But Sobirov takes the readers much farther to suggest that the present divide caused by known history will no way affect the imminent fundamental unity of mankind which must usher in a short while from now.     
      Part Two imparts some of the important principles of Yoga teachings. Part Three is the India of Sobir s  dream and aspiration. It also records Indias thick relationship with him.
       The Fourth part strongly urges that Yoga is now a Global Cult and it should undoubtedly unite all peoples on the earth to live in harmony and peace for ever.
       In the appendix part Sobirov has reproduced some valuable information about the values of food stuff we take and should be aware of in our daily food habit.
        Its editor and co-author PD Mishra evidently contributes substantially with a cross-border bond of unity (Yoga) by his intrinsic presence throughout.
