Today it is 1197th day of ENVIUS THOUGHTS and 1250th post(a land mark day in the life of the Blog) necessitating the TALE OF A BLOGGER in tune with the tradition of the Blog- A TALE FOR EVERY FIFTY POSTS as a Sunday Story!
This tale 25 is again for the third time unique (is it peculiar!?!?!?)- as it is a FRIDAY STORY (and not a SUNDAY STORY as usually the TALES come only on SUNDAYS in the last three years. Blog is running in its FOURTH year and I wish this(other than Sunday story) is not a forerunner for the things to come! Yet these two TALES appeared on Saturdays and this one a day earlier on a FRIDAY!!!
Normally the Blogger makes it a point to give a longer story instead of a twelve line poem on Sundays when the viewers will be more at leisure and can comfortably read a longer write. This week it has so happened that 1250th post falls on a Friday and could not be negotiated and hence this TALE 25 comes as a FRIDAY STORY and the Sunday Story will appear on 10th June on the chosen subject!
It is extremely gratifying that with the grace of the Almighty GODDESS OF LEARNING SARASWATHY, WORD PRESS and my esteemed viewers the Blog has traveled to its 1250th post happily and uninterruptedly since its launch on 25th February 2015.
Though I have already shared a happy news about your favorite Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com getting a place in the Indian Book of Record.
It is indeed a matter of joy with a legitimate pride that the Blog entered the ASIA-PACIFIC BOOK OF RECORDS on 20th April 2018 and the Certificate issued by the GLOBAL RESEARCH AND RECORD FOUNDATION reads as under:

NATIONAL Day OF SILENCE is today in America
For reasons peculiar on the last April Friday
It is twenty seventh of April this year-this post
Deals not with the reasons quoted by Americans-the host!

In our context SPEECH IS SILVER AND SILENCE IS GOLD
Great words of wisdom to follow from the days of old!
Silence gives greater peace- leads not to acrimony
Always providing and sponsoring fund of harmony!

What they call me a chatter box-I can not keep quiet
At least this day onward I have to develop the art
And science of SILENCE!-helping to save Energy nice
Not speaking out of tune and incur displeasure of others!

I think of those days millions of years ago sans the power of SPEECH
How communications could have taken place- body language alone -each
Individual human or animal would have its own method to convey
Thoughts and ideas! Communication should have been a fun as it looks today!

Man developed his method and languages began to flow like water falls
Seven Thousand and one hundred and more languages are there figures quite tall
Including spoken and signed languages-dialects not excluded
Great world, great people, great languages, great art of communication!

ENGLISH LANGUAGE DAY is today the twenty third of April- great language day
Most widely spoken and fastest spreading world language! It is English today
More than ninety eight crores of people speak as first and second language
Full of excellent works of literature – prose and verse-all over the world!

Tell me who your friends are, I shall tell  you who you are
Tell me the books you read, I shall tell you who you are!
Questions of those great days ringing loud  in our ears
Two noble matters that shape a person for years!

Reading of books or hearing at still younger age
Sure will make a child grow in a way to gain an image
Schools and elders to inject the habit of reading
To last all through the life on the road of prospering!

Today is the INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S BOOK DAY
Second April of each year- for the elders to pay
Proper attention and get the quality books for the age
And infuse the great and noble practice at that stage!

True I also make this appeal to my esteemed viewers.

Some of the earlier ENVIUS THOUGHTS were on the significance of numerals such as 3, 6,9 0. This Sunday story deals with the significance of EIGHT! EIGHT in Sanskrit is ‘ASHTA’.

The meaning of the number 8 is harmony, peace, and balance. It is a symbol that helps us make decisions that are beneficial to us in our life. 

Number 8 resonates with the influences and vibrations of authority and personal power, self-confidence, executive ability, confidence, inner-strength, professionalism and the professional, management, material freedom, success, good judgment, money, finances, riches, manifesting wealth, abundance and prosperity, provision, investments, discrimination and discernment, giving and receiving, thoroughness, dependability, self-reliance, repose, practicality, consideration, inner-wisdom, self-sufficiency, social status, pragmatism, the ego, aggregation, compassion, dictatorship, executive, delegation, reality, truth and integrity, compassion, dictatorship, multiples, employment, stability, appearance, customs, skills and talents, exchanges, truth, good judgment and problem-solving, organization and organizing, achieving and achievements, decisiveness, control, constant, ambition, the authoritarian, challenge, efficiency, trustworthiness, insight, planning and the planner, sociability, works independently, learning through experience, true justice, retreat, patience, caution, self-discipline, free-will, insight, spiritual consciousness, expansion, dissolution, dimension of the timeless, good and bad, right and wrong, day and night, ability to see and relate to eternal dimensions, balance between forces, connects spirit and matter, developing confidence to follow a vision, breaks down barriers to transformation, reality, courage, a desire for peace and a love of humanity and world transformation.

ASHTA LAKSHMI

images of goddess ashtalakshmi க்கான பட முடிவு

In Hinduism, we have earlier seen the Goddesses in its pantheon.There are EIGHT Lakshmis-called ASHTA LAKSHMI-

 

The eight forms of Ashta-Lakshmi, through their individual nature,  are believed to fulfill these human necessities and desires.

The eight divine forms of Goddess Lakshmi or Ashta-Lakshmi include:

1.Aadi-Lakshmi (The Primeval Goddess) or Maha Lakshmi (The Great Goddess)

  1. Dhana-Lakshmi or Aishwarya Lakshmi (The Goddess of Prosperity and Wealth)
  2. Dhaanya-Lakshmi (Goddess of Food Grains)
  3. Gaja-Lakshmi (The Elephant Goddess)
  4. Santhana-Lakshmi (The Goddess of Progeny)
  5. Veera-Lakshmi or Dhairya Lakshmi (The Goddess of Valor and Courage)
  6. Vidhya-Lakshmi (The Goddess of Knowledge)
  7. Vijaya-Lakshmi or Jaya Lakshmi (The Goddess of Victory)

 

ASHTA DHISAS

There are eight directions-viz  EAST-SOUTH EAST, NORTH EAST; WEST- SOUTH WEST, NORTH WEST, SOUTH and NORH!

 

Aṣhṭa-Dikpāla(“Guardians of Eight Directions”)

Some years ago astrologers predicted an alarming effect about “Ashtagraha”. Eight planets, it was said, had lined up together. All imaginable disasters, including the end of the world, were predicted. Tons of butter, grain, incense and other valuable articles were offered rightly to ward off the malefic effect of the coming together of eight planets and the fire offerings freed the society.

 

Ashtanga Yoga

This dynamic, physically demanding practice synchronizes breath and movement to produce an internal heat designed to purify the body. Ashtanga yoga is great for building core strength and toning the body. Body is prepared to sweat as we briskly move through a set sequence.

 

Ashtavakra

Ashtavakra is a revered Vedic sage in Hinduism. His name literally means “eight bends”, reflecting the eight physical handicaps he was born with. His maternal grandfather was the Vedic sage Aruni, his parents were both Vedic students at Aruni’s school. Ashtavakra studied, became a sage and a celebrated character in the mythologies of the Hindu Epics and Puranas.

 

ASHTAVADHAANAM

Avadhānaṃ is a literary performance popular from the very ancient days in IndiaAvadhānaṃ originated as a Sanskrit literary process and is revived by Telugu poets in modern times. It involves the partial improvisation of poems using specific themes, meters, forms, or words. The true purpose of an Avadhanam event  is the showcasing, through entertainment, of superior mastery of cognitive capabilities – of observation, memory, multitasking, task switching, retrieval, reasoning and creativity in multiple modes of intelligence – literature, poetry, music, mathematical calculations, puzzle solving etc.

It requires immense memory power and tests a person’s capability of performing multiple tasks simultaneously. All the tasks are memory intensive and demand an in-depth knowledge of literature, and prosody. The tasks vary from making up a poem spontaneously to keeping a count of a bell ringing at random. No external memory aids are allowed while performing these tasks except the person’s mind.

Avadhānaṃ can be considered as the Divided attention (clinical model of attention) as it is the highest level of attention and it refers to the ability to respond simultaneously to multiple tasks or multiple task demands.

Avadhāni is the individual who performs the Avadhānaṃ;  Avadhāni should answer the questions posed by the audience in the form of a poem. The questions generally consist of a description given in prose and the avadhāni has to express it as a poem.

 

8 Walk

8 walk images க்கான பட முடிவு

 

 

Of late as a form of physical exercise EIGHT WALK -8 walk- has become very popular.

My father passed away at his age 87 in the year 1987 on March 6th morning at 5.00 hrs. On 5th evening he had his regular walking for an hour! He used to do Yogasanas –including SHIRSAASANA even on 5th. For his own reasons, my father, who was my YOGA master- who taught us yogasanas to be effectively practiced right from age 10, advised to stop aasanaas at age 65 but continue walking till the life! Fortunately till this day I am having my morning walk for an hour between 3 and 4.

 

Walking is one of the best exercises and helps maintain good health. We should walk with free mind without any distraction. If it is done properly excellent health canl be maintained. In this modern world Morning walk is becoming fashion and many of the people walk chatting with friends  in person or thro’ mobile . Walking with talking!

One of my quotable quotes is “WHILE WALKING AS AN EXERCISE, WALK FAST AND IN SILENCE”..
Among the walking exercise, best walking exercise is said to be“8 shape walk method”. It is claimed to be supreme of all. This is one of the best methods which give miraculous benefits as suggested by the Yogis and Siddhars. It should be practiced daily for 15-30 minutes.

Only at the time of driving license we think about 8 and drive the vehicle in the 8 shape circle and get license. Driving in the 8 shape line by vehicle we get license!!!!!! Colonial practice still in use in the RTO’s offices!

But if we walk in the 8 shape line we will maintain good health.  We will see the method of 8 walk, how it should be done properly, and what all the benefits are.

8 walk images க்கான பட முடிவு

Procedure to do “8” shaped walking exercise: 
We can practice this in the morning, evening or in empty stomach, in the open or in a room in the north-south direction.  Draw a parallel line from east to west or west to east in the north side and leave ten feet gap and  draw 8 shape line; now practice “8” shaped walking.  Normally in public places like parks, this path is filled with pebbles to have the effect of acupuncture walk.

Walk North to south and South to North clockwise and anticlockwise fifteen minutes each.

We may practice “8” shaped walking first and then you may do some simple yogic exercise and breathing exercise.

During this walk we will necessarily concentrate in walking in the 8 shaped line. Possibility of chatting with friends in person or in mobile like in normal walking is enabled to avoid.  Proper and normal breathing is possible.

In our hand palm and leg palm all reflex points of our entire internal organs are located.(See the leg palm picture) Due to the pressure in palm, at the time of  walking ( we should walk in bare foot without shoes/chapel ) all our internal organs are activated and we get relief from concerned diseases.

Benefits of doing “8” shaped walking exercise:

 

 

 

Picture
During walk in the 8 shape our entire body (hip, abdomen etc.) is twisted and all our organs are activated.

At the end of thirty minutes of 8 walking stuffy nose is cleared and feel free breathing from both the nostrils.

In the mean time we can feel the cough in the lungs and sinus cavity get dissolved. The phlegm is eliminated either by spitting out or getting assimilated into the body and  asthma is reversed.

As five kilogram of oxygen is inhaled due to complete respiration, phlegm in the lungs is released. Intake of five kilograms of oxygen energizes the body.

Headache, Digestive Problems, Thyroid, Obesity, and Knee pains, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and constipation is reversed.

It reduces the sugar level in the blood and reverses our diabetes and its complication within a year of regular 8 walking twice daily for half an hour.

Improves eye sight. Due to concentration in the 8 shaped line, short sightedness and other eye related problems are improved /curtailed.

Hearing power is improved. Gentle walking reduces the blood pressure.

Practicing this for half an hour twice a day cures foot cracks, all types’ pain and knee pain.

Aged persons and those who are unable to do this by themselves can do it with the help of others and get benefited even paralysis.

Shoulder, neck, back, lumbar, knee, heels, cervical and lumbar, spondilitis, sciatica, disc prolapsed, paralysis, depression, epilepsy, migraine, diabetics B.P, thyroid, kidney and gall bladder stones, asthma, sinusitis, piles, colitis, nervous debility , sleeplessness, Heart diseases, kidney problems are benefited through this “8” walking.

Practicing this exercise regularly, brings back youth to us, reverses all our diseases And a person of seventy years old may feel that he is young like his grand children.

Let us happily practice “8” shape walk” and enjoy good health without any disease.

Is it too much to digest  and assimilate!  After all this is only a SUNDAY story and you can afford to spend some time on a useful story! Thanks. Till we meet tomorrow GOOD BYE!
