Cycles and Autism
For hundreds of thousands of years - as long as there were parents and child relationship there has been a cycle.  Parents who hope, pray, wish and dream their children will choose differently or better than they did growing up.  For some of us, the regrets

from our youth are very many.  For others it's not that you regret your choices, you just would rather your child not struggle like you did growing up.
Never is that cycle more apparent than when the child becomes a parent and they begin to realize, "Oh CRAP !  I hope my child's life is better than my life was" or "I hope they make different choices."  Or even, "I made good choices and have lived a good life, I hope my child's life is as fulfilling as mine was."  It's inevitable.  We all go through it.  Especially women.
From the moment most of us get pregnant ( some people aren't dreamers, they are very practical ) we dream of what we hope will our children's life.  We have great hopes and great dreams for them.  For some

of us, we hold onto those dreams until our children assert their own need for independence.  At that time we either hold onto those dreams and force our children into a mold we have designed for them (which may not be the mold God designed for them) or we struggle to let go of our dreams and allow our children to dream for themselves.  The latter is preferable for our children, but I will be honest, even Chris and I still struggle to let our oldest daughter, Sarah make her own dreams happen.
When we began to really start testing Elizabeth and I put two and two together, I drove home with a heart

that weighed a ton of lead.  It wasn't just that something wasn't right it was that I remember to this day very vividly how people made fun of the special needs children in school when I was growing up.  I remember their cruelty to me and I wasn't even as different as Lizzie is now.  I walked in the door and Chris knew as soon as he saw the tears running down my face something wasn't right.  All I could say was "Something is wrong with our baby.  And her life will never be easy or the same."  I realized that other people would most likely not see all of the amazing things I saw in Elizabeth.  Her vivid imagination, her kind and beautiful heart filled

with compassion for others, or her sense of adventure (even if that sense of adventure is the cause for most of my gray hair).    Okay so she still is learning to speak like others, okay so she doesn't see the world as other people see it.  Guess what a lot of our great innovators and imagineers in our world didn't see the world through the same eyes as other people.
As time went on and we received her diagnosis we began the process of grieving.  It was a loss.  Not to death, but to the loss of our dreams for her.  Learning to let go of what we had hoped for her future and accepting new goals, hopes and dreams.
Autism isn't a death sentence, nor does it have to be the end of the world.  Yes, it comes with it's own challenges and there are obstacles to work on overcoming ( some you achieve, some you learn to accept and some you keep trying )  But there are people with Autism who aren't High Functioning who learn to cook, clean, and have productive lives.  They have new programs coming out all of the time for adults with Autism.  Programs that aid them in living in the world, or in a community of other adults who struggle with the world too.   But they are there.
Letting go and accepting your child's diagnosis is a small part of the journey we take with our children.  For some of us, our children can feasibly live without us, for some that is not an option, for others a

group home becomes a reality or an institution.  All are tough, letting our children grow up and leave the nest means trusting we've done our best to prepare them for life away from us.  For those whose adult children need us to keep them at home, it often presents other problems - like what happens to my child after I am gone, and for those who must put their children in a home or institution there is the guilt of feeling like we failed our children.  Regardless though, I think we all struggle with feeling like we failed our children when they are diagnosed with a special needs.  Even I struggled, knowing that logically there was nothing I did that caused Lizzie's Autism didn't mean my heart understood.  Getting your heart to catch up with your head can sometimes take a long time to connect the two.  
There are cycles in life.  We all are born, grow up, and face challenges, we become parents ( sometimes before marriage and sometimes afterwards ) and we all struggle to let go of our children and allow them to become their own person.  But never, never is that struggle more difficult if you have a child who has medical problems early in life or if you have a child with special needs or if you have to fight for them to be safe and loved.  Have a good rest of your week. In Christ,
AND REACT - Very touching and true, a very large part of parenting is learning to let our children go on to have their own 


dreams. We all want the best for our children but I think we need to learn early that these children we have, have minds and identities of their own :) Great post Maureen
Ah the weekend
I hope everyone had a good weekend. We had an eventful one to say the least.
Friday I took Chris to work and then drove to McConnell AFB to do the grocery shopping at the base commissary. All went off without event, until I was heading home and started to exit off I-135 when the timing belt went out on the car. Suddenly the car just stopped and I couldn't get it to start again. So I called 911 who put me through to the Highway Patrol then I called AAA for towing service. My biggest concerns were A ) I was on the off ramp and people weren't paying attention to my hazard signals. It worried me that they would rear end me. And B) and more importantly - I had Beka in the car with me. AHHHHH ! I was very relieved when the Highway Patrol came and parked behind me. It took an hour and 20 minutes for the tow truck to make it to us - so I was glad I had the backup there.

So the blessing in all of this, is that Chris's Grandma Dorothy Neal used to have a car just like our old Acclaim and so he knew how to fix it. Did you know that a timing belt is usually only $30 - $40 to purchase - it is the labor costs that get you when you have a mechanic do it? I didn't know this, so Praise God, Chris not only fixed it, but it didn't cost us a fortune. He also has changed the master cylinder and is going to replace the brake pads on the car. Oh, yes I forgot to mention this is Mom's old Plymouth Acclaim. Sadly, this car works better for us than the Chrysler LHS ( it's a 99 ) we purchase last winter. I think Chris is seriously regretting purchasing it now. It's kind of a gas guzzler and the irony in that is that he traded in his truck so he could save money because the truck was a gas guzzler !
Other than all of this, we are doing fine. Beka has diaper rash, but it isn't really anything that a few 


days with Desitin can't fix. Sarah and Elizabeth did very well this weekend - i.e. they got along. That is almost miraculous within itself. I hope you all have a good week. In Christ, Maureen
Glass - OUCH
So we've all been there. You have swept the floor and you think it's clean when ouch you suddenly realize that you are wrong. Well that would be me on Sunday. I knew Sarah had stepped on something sharp earlier a few days ago and I had her sweep to take care of it. However, as is typical of teenagers, she did a half-shod job and so Sunday evening I stepped on a piece of glass. Normally I wouldn't have been hurting so badly, but a piece of the glass broke off in my heel. Of course, I was a total ninny and attempted to get it out myself. Thank goodness I realized we couldn't find the tweezers and since I was in no place to go walking around helping them find them, to the Emergency Room we went.
Honestly when we got there, we weren't sure what to expect, I think Chris and I both thought we'd be there for hours on end, but thankfully that was not the case. We actually were only there about 2 hours - which considering how long it could have

been, is very good. In the end, I had to have them deaden the heel with a shot of numbing stuff I can't spell and out it came. They weren't kidding when they said it would work fast or that it would hurt when the medicine went in, but it was the best $50 co-pay we've ever paid. I would do it again and Praise God that we have great health insurance through Chris' job. It makes me incredibly thankful, because I have friends on both sides of the fence. Some have good insurance, some have crummy insurance and then I have several who have no insurance. So we truly are fortunate and blessed that Chris has a good paying job with great benefits.
Things here are slow and uneventful. Thursday night is Spaght's Math Night and Elizabeth is a team leader, but other than that, there isn't a lot to tell.
Okay that isn't true, we had Parent-Teacher conferences last week and both girls teachers had a lot to

say about them and most of it was good. We have finally come to a place I think I hoped we wouldn't come to for a few more years, but Lizzie is having difficulty staying focused. So now that she is taller and older, it is time to consider whether or not to think about medication. It wasn't ever that we were completely opposed to medication, it was that we felt that four years old was too young to discuss medication. Especially when she was so small and under height and weight that people thought that she was two years old instead of four. So here we are, and in a few weeks, we will go to the pediatrician and discuss medication. I want some time to research our options and to pray about this some more. I'm not sure that I am entirely in favor of medicating children. My main concern is that children's brains are not

like adult brains - they do not have all of their neurotransmitters developed yet and they aren't fully functional like ours - so what can putting them on medication do to their still developing brain. However, having said that, I want Elizabeth to succeed in school as well, and how can she do that if she cannot stay focused in school. So I will research and pray and weigh the pros and cons of medication vs. no medication and Chris and I will go from there.
I hope you all have a good week. God bless you all. In Christ, Maureen
Three months and counting down
Well we are 96 days away from when Chris' orders begin. He informed me of this last night shortly before bed. Of course, I am not necessarily thrilled. Deployment has it's advantages and it's

disadvantages. The advantages are that we don't pay taxes once he gets over there and once he re-enlists we can have that money tax free as well. However, the disadvantages are more numerous. We are here without Chris, which stinks tremendously. It also means that I am doing the single parent thing - although in truth, this isn't much different from out life now, because Chris works second shift, but at least when he's home I get a break. Also I am the one in charge of keeping the finances in order. Now I have my strengths, but balancing my checkbook is not one of them - I am terrible with money. However, Chris' mom offered to help me out with the money this time so I can't make it a huge mess. Also I am removing my debit card from my wallet and we are staying home a lot. Beka fares much better when we stay home and so does Lizzie. So home we will stay at home and work on keeping Lizzie and the girls on track. It helps that I have good friends and family now. I had friends and family last time,

but I tended to withdraw and keep to myself, which I won't do this time. Please keep us in your prayers, we are going to need all the help we can from God to get through this year.
I also ask that you keep Lizzie in your prayers, her asthma is acting up. And we found out from the specialist that it is in fact, asthma. So this poor girl has autism, asthma, allergies, and amblyopia. Talk about getting it all and enjoying it less!
I hope everyone has a good week. We will be keeping you all in our prayers as well. Love In Christ, Maureen

Resenha: BattleStar Galactica - A Série
Os cylons foram criados pelo homem.
Eles se rebelaram.
Eles evoluíram.
Eles parecem e se sentem humanos.
Alguns foram programados para pensar que são humanos.
Existem muitas cópias.
E eles têm um plano.
Bem, senhores leitores da Irmandade, hoje resolvi “falar” um pouco sobre a série americana Battlestar 


Galactica e, sei perfeitamente, que a mesma já datou há algum tempo. Parece até que eu tenho uma atração por resenhar filmes já datados ( vide Deixe-me entrar)  mas não resisti de discorrer sobre esta série que só há pouco tempo tive acesso, e olhe que ainda estou na metade da mesma.
Muito bem, comecemos assim: eu era fã daqueles seriados americanos que passavam nas tardes gostosas de minha adolescência, todas regadas de um bom café e bolinhos de banana feitos na frigideira por mamãe, ô saudade matadeira. Então, eu assistia embevecido “Viagem ao fundo do mar”, “O Túnel do tempo”, “Jornada nas Estrelas”, “Robô Gigante”, enfim, enlatados feitos na década de 60 que pipocavam nas grades de programação da televisão dos anos 80.
O tempo passou, o gosto mudou, as séries também ( ruins de doer ) Lembram do multifuncional MacGyver ( Magaiver ) ? O cara era um fenômeno do improviso científico, pois com apenas um 


tablete de chocolate no bolso e a própria saliva conseguia estancar um vazamento radioativo e ainda brigava com meia dúzia de vilões! Pois é, acabei perdendo o interesse pelos seriados. Mas o cenário mudou, pelo menos pra mim, há coisa de 2 anos por dois motivos: consegui finalmente bancar uma Internet banda larga decente e a pasmaceira que se encontra o cinema hoje em dia. Sim, é verdade, os seriados americanos, em termos de criatividade e dinâmica, estão dando aula aos roteiristas de cinema, mas este assunto vai longe e caberia bem em outro artigo.
Então, por estar fora do assunto e pra não perder viagem, pesquisei bem e decidi “baixar” uma série completa, destas mais “atuais”. O sistema de pesquisa foi de modo pouco científico, reconheço.

Apenas digitei no google “As 10 melhores séries da última década”, focando em algo feito de 2000 pra cá. Daí, “A família Soprano” e “Battlestar Galactica” estavam na maioria dos vários blogues (dos sofríveis aos mais especializados) que sustentavam esta proposta. Como gosto demais de Ficção Científica, optei por BSG para investir alguns dias de download e eu não me arrependi. Acabei tomando gosto novamente por este formato de entretenimento.
Vamos a ideia básica da sinopse que rege as 4 temporadas e outros tantos web episódios feito para alavancar a pausa entre as mesmas, mas pra isso vou usar trechos relevantes da Wikipédia: Battlestar 


Galactica é uma franquia já conhecida e, apesar de eu não tê-la visto naquela fase dos anos 80, a sua primeira produção já data de 1978, no rabo da fama de “Guerra nas Estrelas”.
Na época em que se discutia o livro Eram os Deuses Astronautas?, com o surgimento da explosiva saga Star Wars, a rede de TV americana ABC lançava a série de ficção científica Battlestar Galactica (que no Brasil, foi chamada de: Galáctica, Astronave de Combate )  em 1978. Ela faz alusão às velhas civilizações dos egípcios, dos maias, dos incas, dos astecas e outras tantas, que poderiam ter sido descendentes de seres espaciais. O enredo do seriado sugere que esses seres humanos "que até hoje lutam pela sobrevivência em algum lugar do espaço" seriam os antepassados dessas antigas civilizações.
Uma nova versão do primeiro episódio do seriado original foi levada ao ar em 2003, obtendo novo êxito e justificando a produção de um seriado que teve sua primeira temporada em 2004 e cuja 


produção terminou em 2009.
Segundo a série, os humanos surgiram em um planeta distante chamado Kobol, em um passado longínquo. Com o tempo, esse planeta não pôde mais suportar a vida e os humanos, organizados em treze tribos - sendo que uma se perderia das demais (insinuando que esta seria nossa cultura atual) -, tiveram que procurar outro planeta, em outro sistema solar. Milhares de anos depois de estarem instalados em novas colônias, com a evolução, a tecnologia avançou muito e a inteligência artificial usada pelos humanos ganhou status de forma de vida e consciência própria, se revoltando contra seus criadores por achar que estes não davam valor à sua existência. Os Cilônios (assim chamados em português), acreditavam em um Deus único (monoteísmo) e os Humanos em vários (politeísmo), causando conflito entre suas culturas. Os Cylons então executaram um plano de destruição em massa que reduziu a Humanidade (cerca de 12 bilhões de

pessoas) a alguns poucos milhares de sobreviventes. Sem alternativas, esses sobreviventes decidiram, sob a liderança do Comandante Adama, procurar por uma lendária décima terceira tribo, que havia deixado Kobol antes das outras doze e havia se dirigido "a um planeta brilhante conhecido como Terra".(fonte Wikipedia)
Como se pode perceber, pra quem gosta de FC, esta sinopse é um tira-gosto dos mais apreciados e ela me conquistou também. Vocês não fazem ideia da quantidade de informação que tem na Internet sobre esta série e, caso seja do interesse, não haverá o menor problema em conseguir mais detalhes. Portanto, vou me ater daqui pra diante no que diz respeito as minhas impressões pessoais, mesmo que elas sejam baseadas nas duas primeiras temporadas que assisti até agora ( os web episódios e as 3ª e 4ª temporadas serão devoradas brevemente )
Battle star Galactica simplesmente é show de bola!

Não vou ousar dizer que é uma das melhores séries entre as 10 mais de todos os tempos, como muitos fãs de FC apregoam, porque não sou expert no assunto, uma vez que, das “atuais”, minha experiência restringe-se apenas ao drama pós-apocalíptico de zumbis “Walking Dead” e as intrigas palacianas de “Games of Thrones”, ambas, também, nada fracas em termos de qualidade nos seus respectivos temas. E, ademais, os enlatados dos anos 60, alguns bem toscos como “Perdidos no Espaço”, por exemplo, não são parâmetros muito confiáveis para sustentar tal heresia. Mas digo, com convicção, que vale a pena assistir esta série.
Vou tentar explicar mais detalhadamente os porquês desta empolgação. Depois de 50 anos em Stand by, os Cylons quebram a paz com os seres humanos de modo bem radical, conseguindo quebrar o sistema defensivo de Cáprica, o habitat natural do homem no contexto futuro de tempo e espaço (com trocadilho) e, simplesmente, devastam o planeta com uma chuva de bombas atômicas. Cerca de 49.000

sobreviventes conseguem fugir espalhados em dezenas de espaçonaves capitaneada pela gigantesca e arcaica Galáctica, conduzida com mãos de ferro pelo capitão Adama (Edward James Olmos).
Como a força dos Cylons é esmagadora e tecnologicamente mais avançada, em muitos capítulos vemos a frota de espaçonaves, liderada por Adama, fugir através de hipersaltos no espaço com os inimigos sempre no encalço deles.  Pois é justamente entre estes saltos de fuga que ocorrem os dramas, as intrigas, as dúvidas existenciais, os vícios, as questões religiosas, as artimanhas políticas, o valor da amizade, a loucura potencial, as questões morais, mágoas entre pais e filhos e tudo que venha a se relacionar com as vicissitudes boas e ruins da espécie humana refletidas nas ações de seus principais personagens, incluindo neste imbróglio de sentimentos os próprios Cylons. Está bem aí o diferencial que faz desta série algo há mais do que simplesmente batalhas espaciais vistosas e efeitos especiais de respeito, dada à devida consideração dos padrões televisivos. Coisa de fino trato, como costumo dizer.

Esta dosagem bem acertada e envolvente entre ação e drama em que estão mergulhados grande parte dos seus personagens, tão verdadeiramente reais, embora seja um entretenimento de ficção, é que atrai você pra assistir o próximo capítulo. Algumas vezes o cidadão fica ansioso pra saber como Adama vai escapar de um cerco de naves cylônicas em condições totalmente adversas e, outras mais angustiantes ainda, é querer saber como determinado personagem vai reagir a uma situação corriqueira que pode acontecer com qualquer um como, por exemplo, a perda de um ente querido, a perda da mulher amada para outro homem, saber que aquela pessoa não era o que você pensava, a traição de um amigo a quem você confiava totalmente, saber ser portador de uma doença incurável, enfim, identificações muito 


próximas de comportamentos humanos em meio a uma ficção exacerbada nos limites da imaginação.
Os episódios de Battlestar Galactica não são fechados, não se encerram em si mesmos. Há uma sequência de situações em que cada capítulo os roteiristas vão jogando ramificações para os seguintes de tal modo que você mal acaba de ver um e já quer ver o outro e outro até fechar um ciclo, uma pausa, que, ainda sim, te deixa querendo mais, totalmente preso na rede que eles te jogam.
A única ressalva que faço a série como um todo vai bater bem no ponto nevrálgico da própria, pois passa por esta identificação de sentimentos reais, diz respeito a espinha dorsal de sustentação de tudo que você vê e sente: a aceitação da natureza dos cylons, pois dependendo de como você os recebe ou você vai amar ou largar a série nos primeiros capítulos. Em verdade, é preciso absorver a idéia dentro das regras ficcionais as quais se está inserido como espectador, isto no que concerne a exacerbação da ficção. Por quê?
Explico.
Há dois tipos de Cylons: os de natureza bruta, estruturais, verdadeiros robôs de guerra, máquinas de metal que se encarregam do trabalho sujo de exterminar humanos. E há os cylons que são diversas cópias perfeitas de uma dúzia de “modelos” de seres humanos. E tão perfeitas são estas cópias que,

algumas delas, sequer desconfiam que são cylons adormecidos pronto para despertarem em condições favoráveis em parte de um plano de dominação e exterminação. Elas foram infiltradas no planeta bem antes de ele ser devastado e, por conseqüência, algumas destas cópias fazem parte da frota de sobreviventes, inclusive em meio à tripulação da própria Galáctica.
O que é mais difícil de engolir é que num ambiente de tão alta sofisticação os cientistas e médicos não conseguem identificar as cópias cylônicas, mesmo com rigorosos exames de sangue, ou seja, as “Torradeiras”, muitas vezes, mais humanas do que, até mesmo, os próprios humanos na esfera psicológica também o são na parte física: eles choram, sagram, sentem dor, se apaixonam, são vulneráveis tanto quanto a matriz de que se espelham, enfim, não há como saber quem é quem. Leia, por exemplo, um diálogo entre uma Cylon e o Capitão Adama, ele sabendo que ela não é humana, num dos episódios da 2ª temporada que me chamou a atenção:
Capitão Adama - Eu lhe chamei aqui para descobrir por que os cylons nos odeiam tanto.

Mulher cylônica - Eu não tenho certeza de que sei como responder isso. Quero dizer, ódio pode não ser a palavra certa.
Capitão Adama - Eu não quero discutir semântica com você. Eu só quero saber por quê ?
Mulher cylônica - É aquilo que você disse na cerimônia...antes do ataque quando a Galáctica estava sendo retirada do serviço. Você fez um discurso que soou como... se não tivesse sido aquele que você tinha preparado. Você disse que a humanidade foi uma criação falha. E que as pessoas ainda matam umas as outras por motivos insignificantes, inveja e ganância. Você disse que a humanidade nunca se perguntou por que merecia sobreviver... e, talvez, vocês não devam.
Você, leitor, Percebe o nível de reflexão que a série faz você bater cabeça de um lado e ter que aceitar uma mente tão artificialmente humana de compreender mais até do que os próprios humanos, do outro. Por isso é mais fácil aceitar uma nave de guerra como a Galáctica, por exemplo, num futuro distante do que aceitar algo tão perfeito como as cópias cylônicas-humanas. Aceitando a natureza incrivelmente camaleônica dos cylons e as regras internas que se determina dentro do seriado, você tem boas horas pra se entreter e refletir com um excelente seriado.
Gostaria de me estender por outros temas como a religião, a amizade, a hierarquia, a inveja, o preciosismo, a lealdade, o amor, a loucura, a esperança, o ódio, a prepotência, a política, a tirania, e outros tantos temas que são evocados de modo muito particular no enredo entre os humanos e humanos e os humanos e cylons. Gostaria, também, de me estender no perfil psicológico dos diversos personagens incríveis de Battestar Galáctica, mas, pelo visto, já “falei” demais. Fica aqui, pra fechar a conta, apenas um conselho: quem quiser se aventurar neste seriado deve pesquisar a filmografia, iniciar pelo filme piloto de 2003 e seguir adiante. Evite entrar em blogues dos entusiastas da série, pois eles entregam muita coisa, quem são os cylons adormecidos, por exemplo, que acabam estragando boa parte das reviravoltas e surpresas do enredo bem tecido.
No mais, é isso. Até a próxima.

THE BENEFITS OF TAKING MANGOSTEEN

Native to Southeast Asia, mangosteen plants are used in traditional herbal medicine for the properties in their fruits. Mangosteen fruits are sometimes used for treating infections, healing wounds and relieving diarrhea. No conclusive scientific evidence supports mangosteen's use in treating any medical condition, so talk with your physician before taking mangosteen.
RELIEVES INFLAMMATION
Mangosteen may have anti-inflammatory effects that could potentially help in treating arthritis and healing wounds. The fruit hulls of mangosteen contain xanthones, compounds that may provide the anti-inflammatory actions, says the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. A 2002 test tube study published in the journal "Biochemical Pharmacology" found that xanthone derivatives of mangosteen helped to inhibit certain chemical synthesis in cells that causes inflammation. Although studies have found these anti-inflammatory effects in test tubes and animals, no human clinical trials have been conducted to prove that mangosteen or its constituents can help to relieve inflammation, the Mayo Clinic says.
FIGHT BACTERIA
Mangosteen may have antibacterial effects that can help to fight certain diseases. A laboratory study conducted in Japan and published in a 2003 edition of the "Chemical & Pharmaceutical Bulletin" found that the xanthones contained in mangosteen had antibacterial actions, according to the Memorial Sloan-


Kettering Cancer Center. This study also found that mangosteen's xanthones inhibited tuberculosis bacterium in vitro. Despite mangosteen's possible antibacterial actions, a study that used the herbal remedy in a mouthwash preparation found that mangosteen failed to fight the oral bacteria that cause the gum disease gingivitis, says the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Published in 2007 in the "Journal of International Academic Periodontology" looked at the mangosteen mouthwash's effects on bad breath, dental plaque and gum bleeding. Because all supporting medical evidence of mangosteen's antibacterial effects are highly

preliminary, you shouldn't use mangosteen as an antibacterial treatment without first talking with a healthcare professional.
TREATS INFECTIONS
In addition to its antibacterial actions, mangosteen has also shown some effects in treating viruses. These actions may indicate mangosteen's potential use in fighting infection. A test tube study published in 1997 in the "Journal of Natural Products" found that xanthones had antifungal activities, according to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Mangosteen's infection-fighting potential hasn't been studied in humans, however, so consult your doctor before taking mangosteen products for this use.
21 Hottest Secrets for Asia Mangosteen Fruit
One of the newest, hottest topics in health food supplements today is mangosteen!
The whole fruit of a mangosteen contains its primary nutrient compound, xanthones: naturally occurring, high-potency antioxidants found primarily in the peel/hull of the fruit.


Mangosteen has been revered for centuries as Asia's "Queen of Fruits". Of course, you do not need to take our word for it, as here is the list of "The Top 21 Secrets"
1 BOOST YOUR ENERGY
Mangosteen's ability to fight fatigue is one of its most sought-after benefits. Mangosteen predictably and reliably provides a safe boost of energy.
2 REDUCE AND PREVENT PAIN ASWELL AS FIGHT INFLAMMATION
Chronic inflammation can lead to Type II diabetes, cancer, arthritis, alzheimer's disease, heart disease and other deadly diseases. Xanthones in mangosteen naturally fight inflammation at the cellular level by inhibiting COX 2 enzymes. Mangosteen's pain-relieving benefits are helping people all over the world.
3 LOSE WEIGHT

In our fat-laden world; our cell membranes are quickly becoming hard and impermeable. The xanthones in mangosteen act to make our cells soft and permeable and able to quickly convert the food we eat into energy. This makes us feel better and helps us lose weight at the same time.
4 PREVENT HEART DISEASE
Heart disease and arteriosclerosis occur when the elasticity of vessels surrounding the heart is lost. Mangosteen helps to fortify this system of vessels through its antimicrobial and antioxidant effects. When these vessels are healthy and strong, the risk of heart disease decreases.
5 FIGHT HARMFUL FREE RADICALS

Mangosteen contains catechins, which have been proven to be multiple times more effective against free radicals than the antioxidants vitamin C and vitamin E.
6 REDUCE HYPERTENSION
Hypertension ( elevated blood pressure ) is one of the leading causes of arteriosclerosis. Dangerous plaques form and narrow the passageways of the arteries, increasing the risk for heart attack or stroke. Mangosteen has proven effective, especially in those with normal body weight, to lower blood pressure and prevent the onset of pulmonary hypertension.
7 IMPROVE DIGESTION AND YOUR STOMACH CONDITION
One of the effects of aging is the natural decline in stomach acid. This leads to increased bacteria in the stomach and causes diarrhea, cramping, gas, and malabsorption of nutrients. The rind of the mangosteen is mostly made up of fiber. Fiber pushes waste through the colon more rapidly, preventing constipation and possibly colon cancer. Fiber can also keep cholesterol in check by removing harmful bile acids.
8 IMPROVE THE URINARY TRACT
Incontinence for women is caused by the natural decline of muscle tone in the pelvis. This decline in

muscle tone reduces the bladder's ability to completely empty itself. As men age, the prostate naturally enlarges, which narrows the urethra and causes some urine to remain in the bladder after urination. Men and women with this condition often experience infection because of retained bacteria in urine not eliminated. The xanthones in mangosteen have a proven, natural antibacterial effect, so dependence upon antibiotics can be eliminated.
9 HELP MOUTH SORES AND HELP BAD BREATH
Mangosteen can heal painful mouth sores in as little as 24 hours! Its astringent power and anti-microbial bacteria-killing effects work immediately to help promote a healthy mouth and gums.
10 EASE ASTHMA
Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the respiratory system. Mangosteen is an ideal alternative to 


undesirable asthma medication because of its ability to fight infection, inhibit inflammation, and reduce allergic triggers...naturally!
11 FIGHT AND PREVENT DIABETES
Chronic inflammation is one of the leading causes of Type II diabetes. Because mangosteen is a natural anti-inflammatory agent, it may help prevent Type II diabetes. With the ability to lower and regulate blood sugar, decrease appetite, improve energy levels, and decrease the need for hypoglycemic medications.
12 IMPROVE MENTAL AWARENESS
Oxidative damage to the brain is a significant cause of dementia, alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and other central nervous system diseases. Because mangosteen is one of the best antioxidants, it is effective in preventing
mental degeneration. Plus, mangosteen has been shown to improve mental acuity.
13 FIGHT AND PREVENT CANCER
Mangosteen is being researched non-stop for its possible prevention of cancer. Research has shown that extracts from the mangosteen fruit inhibit the growth of human leukemia cells and also inhibit the rapid growth of cells that trigger breast cancer, liver cancer, and other gastric and lung cancer cells.
14 FIGHT AND PREVENT ALLERGIES
Mangosteen is highly sought after for its natural antihistamine and anti-inflammatory effects. As a bonus, it is MUCH more pleasant to use than allergy medications, and doesn't cause undesirable drowsiness.
15 FIGHT INFECTIOUS DISEASES
Scientists have exposed growing bacteria to solutions of mangosteen and have found that mangosteen actually stopped the bacteria from growing. As a result, mangosteen is being hailed "queen of the anti-microbials" for its natural ability to kill bacteria.
16 FIGHT AND PREVENT DEPRESSION
One of the best benefits of mangosteen is its ability to give the user a feeling of well being thus avoiding depression. Plus, tryptophan -- an essential amino acid -- is enhanced by taking daily doses of mangosteen. Tryptophan is directly related to serotonin, which is responsible for sleep, moods, and appetite.
17 IMPROVE YOUR SKIN
Skin disorders such as eczema, dermatitis, acne, psoriasis, and rashes are commonly treated with steroids and anti-fungal creams. Applied topically, mangosteen has proven to fight these skin conditions naturally and without harmful drugs or side effects.
18 HELP EYE PROBLEMS
Cataracts and glaucoma are the result of radiation damage to the lens proteins in the eye. These conditions can be prevented by avoiding sun exposure and by supplementation with effective antioxidants such as those contained in mangosteen.
19 LOWER CHOLESTEROL
When low-density lipoprotein ( LDL or "bad" cholesterol ) is oxidized in the blood stream and arteries, fibrous plaques form. Studies have shown that xanthones reduce the oxidation of LDL, which prevents the plaques from forming.
20 HELP PREVENT KIDNEY STONES
Kidney stones are common, particularly in men. When men first use mangosteen, many will urinate frequently during the following 24 hours. This diuretic effect is helpful with prevention or passing of kidney stones.
21 PREVENT OR SHORTEN VIRAL INFECTIONS
Mangosteen has shown a remarkable ability -- when taken in high doses at the onset of a viral infection -  to speed up the body's processes and heal viral infections more quickly. When taken as a daily supplement, mangosteen has also proven effective in preventing viral infections altogether.
The Mangosteen
THE MANGOSTEEN FRUIT IS SMOOTH, ROUND, DARK-PURPLE TO RED-PURPLE ON THE OUTSIDE AND PURPLISH-WHITE ON THE INSIDE. THE INSIDE IS BROKEN UP AMONG 4 TO 8 TRIANGULAR SEGMENTS OF SNOW-WHITE, JUICY, SOFT FLESH. THE FRUIT MAY BE SEEDLESS OR HAVE 1 TO 5 FULLY DEVELOPED SEEDS. INSTEAD OF PEELING IT LIKE AN ORANGE, A MANGOSTEEN IS TYPICALLY OPENED BY PRESSING FIRMLY OR TWISTING THE OUTSIDE UNTIL IT BREAKS APART. THE HARD RIND CAN BE NEARLY ONE INCH THICK.
The fruit was probably first domesticated in Thailand or Burma. Currently it is heavily cultivated in Thailand, Southern Vietnam and Burma, throughout Malaya and Singapore. The tree has been unable to grow successfully in Hawaii, California and Florida due to unfavorable soils and temperatures and its need for large quantities of rainfall.
Mangosteens are usually eaten fresh as dessert though the fleshy segments are sometimes canned. Apparently they lose their delicate flavor in canning, especially if pasteurized. Sometimes jams are made and the seeds can be eaten as well. The rind is rich in pectin and can also be made into a jelly. In the United States (except for Hawaii) they have been difficult to find fresh due to import concerns and so are mostly consumed as part of a variety of different beverages.
In Asia, medicinal uses of the mangosteen abound. The sliced and dried rind is powdered and administered to overcome dysentery, diarrhea, cystitis, gonorrhea and gleet. . Made into an ointment, it is applied on eczema and other skin disorders. Filipinos employ a decoction of the leaves and bark as a febrifuge and to treat thrush, diarrhea, dysentery and urinary disorders. In Malaya, an infusion of the leaves, combined with unripe banana and a little benzoin is applied to the wound of circumcision. A root decoction is taken to regulate menstruation. A bark extract called "amibiasine", has been marketed for the treatment of amoebic dysentery.
What makes mangosteen a 'super fruit' ? The rind has been found to contain the compounds alpha-mangostin, beta-mangostin, garcinone B, and garcinone E, which are collectively called xanthones. Laboratoy studies suggest xanthones have anti-cancer effects when they are studied in test tubes. Mangosteen has also been found to have anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antifungal, and antiseptic properties in test tube studies. What happens in test tube studies may not necessarily happen when the fruit is ingested orally. In addition, some of the properties attributed to the xanthone content may actually be obtained from compounds called tannins in the rind. All plants contain tannins. Studies of xanthones are in the very early stages and no real conclusions regarding health benefits have been established.
The fruit of the mangosteen is the most flavorful part however, it is the rind that contains the xanthones and other valuable phytochemicals. Therefore, to gain full value from this fruit, you need to be drinking juice products that contiain a whole food puree. In this case the color will be purple.
An interesting side note about the mangosteen is that it is commonly known as "The Queen of fruits" in parts of southeast Asia, notably Singapore and Malaysia. It is believed to have "cooling" properties that counteract the "heatiness" of durians, the so-called "King of fruits". The fruiting season of these two fruits coincides.

Mangosteen Benefits for Diabetics
Diabetes is a chronic disorder of carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism characterized by an imbalance between insulin supply and demand. This condition occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin. Your body needs insulin to convert glucose into energy.
There are two classification of Diabetes. Diabetic One is classified as being insulin-dependent. This type of diabetes affects only approximately 5 to 10 of the of the population. Type 1 Diabetes, has been known as Juvenile-onset because it is usually diagnosed in those under 30 years of age. The pancreas in this type, undergoes an autoimmune attack by the body itself, and is rendered incapable of making insulin.
Second, is the Type 2 diabetes, also known as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus ( NIDDM ) or referred to as adult onset diabetes. Patients in this kind of type can still be able to produce insulin; on the other hand, it is relatively inadequately for their body’s needs, particularly in the face of insulin resistance. Type 2 diabetes major feature, is that it lacks sensitivity to insulin by the cells of the body.
Symptoms of having high blood levels of glucose can cause several problems, including blurry vision, excessive thirst, fatigue, frequent urination, hunger and weight loss. However, because type 2 diabetes develops slowly, some people with high blood sugar experience no symptoms at all.
There are certain factors, which may lead to diabetes. First question comes in mind is, is diabetes inherited? If the diabetes runs in the family for numerous years then heredity plays a major role in the development of the condition. People who have a family background of having a history of diabetes are 25% more prone to develop diabetes.Diet is a major factor responsible for causing this chronic disorder. Consuming high amount of sweets or the incorrect kind of food intake does not cause diabetes. However, it may cause obesity and this connects with people developing Type 2 diabetes. Stress also does not directly cause diabetes, although it may be a trigger for the body turning on itself as in the case of Type 1 diabetes. It really does, however, making the symptoms worse for those who already suffering diabetes.
Age is also one of the risk factor for diabetes. It has been studied that as one grows older, specifically 45 years of age. It is mainly because due to old age, the person becomes less active, tends to gain weight, leading to pancreatic dysfunction giving it greater risk of developing the said condition.
In the course of latest advancements made in exercises, a person’s weight can be preserved under control, glucose present in the blood can be utilized by cells to generate energy and finally Pancreas’ work load can be reduced drastically.
Treatment:
There is no cure for diabetes. Treatments for diabetes can consist of many elements. It involves medicines, balance diet and exercise to control blood sugar and prevent symptoms.
Medications to treat diabetes include insulin and glucose-lowering pills called oral hypoglycaemic drugs. You should also work closely to your diet and learn to be consistent in choosing the right food. Regular exercise is especially important for people with diabetes.Conventional treatments in addition to complementary and alternative treatments are available. What are the alternative ways to treat diabetes? Supplements and plant foods are some of these alternatives.
Mangosteen on Diabetes
What is the great value of the tropical fruit MANGOSTEEN in people suffering from diabetes? The amount of antioxidants present in mangosteen offer some benefit for those with diabetes specifically in boosting the immune system and in lowering blood cholesterol level in the blood. The preliminary stage of mangosteen research on its beneficial health effects shows potential promising results.The potent antioxidants present in this powerful fruit shows to improve glucose control effectively in patients whose pancreas continues to produce insulin. It exerts its effects by reducing insulin resistance in body tissues. Mangosteen does not increase your appetite or cause water retention.
Mangosteen fruit will, without a doubt, to be the most successful and powerful food supplement ever. The capsule form contains the purest, guaranteed 100% of mangosteen, while on the other hand, its liquid form contains just a little amount of its main ingredient due to the many additives included to it. The excellent sustenance of mangosteen can be found in its solid forms.

हिंदू धर्म में अश्लीलता का प्रचार भ्रामक है - विजय

महा मूर्ख दरबार में । लगा अनोखा केस । फँसा हुआ है मामला । अक्ल बङी या भैंस । अक्ल बङी या भैंस । दलीलें बहुत सी आयीं । महा मूर्ख दरबार की । अब देखो सुनवाई । जी हाँ । ये कहना है इनका । इनका शुभ नाम है - विजय कुमार मिश्रा । इंटरनेट पर धार्मिक लोगों की खोज करना । उनसे जुङना । विचारों का आदान प्रदान करना ही मेरा एकमात्र ध्येय है । इसलिये ऐसे लोगों के मिलने पर खुशी होती हैं । आज हम आपका परिचय करा रहें हैं । ऐसे ही एक श्रेष्ठ भारतीयता के विचारों से ओत प्रोत नवयुवक श्री विजय कुमार मिश्रा जी से । हालांकि मुश्किल ये है कि - विजय जी ने अपने परिचय प्रोफ़ाइल में खास क्या कुछ भी नहीं लिखा है । पर किसी व्यक्ति के विचार ही उसका परिचय होते हैं । विजय जी ने सनातन हिन्दू धर्म । धार्मिकता । और कई अन्य ज्ञानवर्धक विषयों पर पूर्ण बेबाकी और निडरता से लिखा है । इसलिये इन्हें पढने से हमें बहुत सी नामालूम चीजों का भी पता चलता है । और एक रोचकता पूर्ण अहसास का अनुभव करते हुये पाठक इन्हें पढता ही चला जाता है । इनका ब्लाग है - कृष्णा आला रे । ब्लाग नाम पर क्लिक करें ।
और ये हैं । विजय जी की कुछ चुनिंदा रचनायें -


हिंदू धर्म में अश्लीलता का भ्रामक प्रचार का प्रति उत्तर
भारत वर्ष आज धर्मांतरण के रोग की प्रमुख आश्रय स्थली बन चुका है । चीन और उसके पार वाले देश इस विषाणु के लिए अप्रवेश्य हैं । और बाकी दुनिया में भारत वर्ष के पश्चिम में जितना धर्मांतरण हो सकता था । हो चुका है । अब तो बस वहाँ एक शाखा ( ईसाईयत) से दूसरी शाखा ( इस्लाम ) को लपकना । और उनकी छोटी छोटी उप शाखाओं को पकड़ कर झूलने का ही खेल बचा है ।
परंतु भारत में हिन्दू और गैर हिन्दू जनसंख्या का अच्छा खासा मिश्रण मौजूद है । जो अल्लाह या यीशु के मिशन को आगे ले जाने के लिये बड़ी संख्या में संभावित अनुयायी । बड़ी संख्या में दलाल । और समर्थक आधार को पेश करता है । जैसे भारत वर्ष इतिहास के महापुरुषों को जन्म देने के लिए प्रसिद्ध है । वैसे यहाँ की भूमि दगाबाजों को पैदा करने और पालने में भी उतनी ही उर्वरक है । जो आत्म घात में ही गौरव समझते हैं । इस बात का इससे बड़ा प्रमाण क्या हो सकता है कि - एक राष्ट्रीय शर्म के प्रतीक ( बाबरी मस्जिद )  जिसे एक समलैंगिक । बच्चों के यौन शोषण की विकृति से गृस्त । कत्ले आम में माहिर । और नशे की लत के आदी बाबर ने खड़ा किया था । के विध्वंस की घटना को देश में गौरव का प्रसंग मानने की बजाए उसे एक बड़ी समस्या बना दिया गया है । जिसके पास किसी प्रकार का नियंत्रण ही नहीं

। ऐसे अत्यंत निर्बल नेतृत्व ने यह बिलकुल सरल कर दिया है कि - अन्य कोई अज़मल कसाब या अफ़ज़ल आराम से अपनी इच्छा और ज़रुरत अनुसार अपने लोग । पैसे । आर डी एक्स लाकर हिन्दुओं की संख्या को आसानी से कम कर सकें ।
अनेक कारण दिए जा सकते हैं । लेकिन यह इस लेख का प्रयोजन नहीं है । संक्षेप में । भारत वर्ष किसी भी विदेशी मत के फ़लने फूलने के लिए पोषक वातावरण मुहैया कराता है । धर्मांतरण ने अब एक चतुर खेल की शक्ल अख्तियार कर ली है । एक ही मत प्रसार के लिए अनेक प्रकार के उपायों का प्रचुर दाव । पेचों के साथ उपयोग किया जा रहा है । व्यापक स्तर पर धर्मांतरण करने के लिए जो हिन्दुओं को सिर्फ इस्लाम में शामिल करना चाहते हैं । या जो चाहते हैं कि - हिन्दू बाइबल को 


ही गले लगायें । उनकी प्रमुख कूट चाल है  । हिन्दुत्व को दुनिया के समक्ष सर्वाधिक अश्लील धर्म के रूप में प्रस्तुत करना । वैसे यह इनके मत प्रसार का कोई नवीनतम उपाय भी नहीं है । परंतु आज के संदर्भ में यह हथकंडा कई कारणों से महत्वपूर्ण हो जाता है । जिसकी चर्चा यहां स्थान अभाव की वजह से करना प्रासंगिक नहीं होगा ।
यह बहुत ही हास्यास्पद है कि - बाइबल या कुरान और हदीसों के आशिक हिंदुत्व पर अश्लीलता से भरे होने का आरोप लगाते हैं । क्योंकि अंतिम अक्षर तक सर्वाधिक अश्लील किताबों की फ़ेहरिस्त में इन किताबों ( बाइबल । कुरान । हदीस ) ने चरम स्थान हासिल कर रखा है ।

jesusallah.wordpress.com और बहुत सी अन्य साइटस पर आप इससे संबंधित अनगिनत लेख पाएंगे । किन्तु ये धर्मांतरण के विषाणु इतने बेशर्म हैं कि - आम जनता का छलावा करके पतित करने की प्रवृत्ति से उनकी आंखें तनिक भी झपकती नहीं हैं । तभी तो वे लोग अधिक से अधिक जनता को किसी भी तरीके से खींचते हैं । ताकि उनको जन्नत में ज्यादा से ज्यादा ऐशो आराम और हूरें मिलें ।
पर आज यह बेहद गंभीर मसला बन चुका है । भारी संख्या में अपने सत्य धर्म से अनजान हिन्दू । आतंरिक और बाहरी चालबाजियों का शिकार बन रहें हैं । और अंततः इस अप प्रचार में फंस कर भ्रान्तिवश अपने धर्म से नफ़रत करना शुरू कर देते हैं । उनके लिए हिंदुत्व का मतलब । राधा-कृष्ण के अश्लील प्रणय दृश्य । शिव लिंग के रूप में पुरुष

जननेंद्रिय की पूजा । शिव का मोहिनी पर रीझना । विष्णु और शिव द्वारा स्त्रियों का सतीत्व नष्ट करना । बृह्मा का अपनी पुत्री सरस्वती पर आसक्त होना इत्यादि इत्यादि से ज्यादा और कुछ नहीं रह जाता ।
हमारी जानकारी में ऐसे कई पत्रक pamphlets भारत भर में वितरित किए जा रहे हैं । और उनमें हिन्दुओं से अपील की जा रही है कि - वे सच्चे ईश्वर और सच्ची मुक्ति को पाने के लिए विदेशी मज़हबों को अपनाएं । बहुत से हिन्दू अपनी बुनियाद से घृणा भी करने लगे हैं । और जो हिंदुत्व के चाहने वाले हैं । वे निश्चित नहीं कर पाते हैं कि - कैसे इन कहानियों का स्पष्टीकरण दिया जाए । और अपने धर्म को बचाया जाए । छदम धर्म निरपेक्षता वादी कम्युनिस्ट इसको हवा देने में लगे हुए हैं ।
इस लेख का प्रयोजन इन सभी आरोपों को सही परिपेक्ष्य में रखना । और सभी धर्म प्रेमियों के हाथ में ऐसी कसौटी प्रदान करना है । जिससे वे न केवल सत्य का रक्षण ही कर सकें । बल्कि इस मिथ्या प्रचार पर तमाचा भी जड़ सकें ।

1 अश्लीलता के प्रत्येक आरोप पर विचार करने से पहले यह तय किया जाना जरूरी है कि - क्या ये धर्म की परिधि में आता भी है ? हिंदुत्व में धर्म की अवधारणा । कुरान और बाइबल की अंध विश्वासों की व्यवस्था से पूर्णतः भिन्न है । हिंदुत्व के सभी वर्गों में स्वीकृत की गई । धर्म की सार्वभौमिक व्याख्या । मनुस्मृति 6 । 92 में प्रतिपादित धर्म के 11 लक्षण हैं । अहिंसा । धृति ( धैर्य ) क्षमा । इन्द्रिय निग्रह । अस्तेय ( चोरी न करना ) शौच ( शुद्धि ) आत्म संयम । धी: ( बुद्धि ) अक्रोध । सत्य । और विद्या प्राप्ति ।
Vedic Religion in Brief में इन्हें विस्तार से समझाया गया है । जो इन 11 लक्षणों का उल्लंघन करे । या इनको दूषित करे । वह हिंदुत्व या हिन्दू धर्म नहीं है ।
2 धर्म की दूसरी कसौटी हैं - वेद । सभी हिन्दू ग्रंथ सुस्पष्ट और असंदिग्धता से वेदों को अंतिम प्रमाण मानते हैं । अतः कुछ भी । और सब कुछ जो वेदों के विपरीत है । धर्म नहीं है ।
मूलतः ऊपर बताई गई दोनों कसौटियां । अपने आपमें एक ही हैं । किन्तु थोड़े से अलग अभिगम से ।
3 योग दर्शन में यही कसौटी थोड़ी सी भिन्नता से यम और नियमों के रूप में प्रस्तुत की गई है ।
यम - अहिंसा । सत्य । अस्तेय । बृह्मचर्य ( आत्म संयम और शालीनता ) अपरिग्रह ( अनावश्यक संग्रह न करना )
नियम - शौच ( शुद्धि ) संतोष । तप ( उत्तम कर्तव्य के लिए तीवृ और कठोर प्रयत्न ) स्वाध्याय या आत्म 


निरीक्षण । ईश्वर प्रणिधान (ईश्वर के प्रति समर्पण )
पिनाक - भगवान शंकर का यह नाम कैसे पड़ा ?
दैत्यों के गुरु शुक्राचार्य की माता का नाम कल्याणी था । जिसके कारण वे दैत्य गुरु बन गए थे । तथा विष्णु को अपना सबसे बड़ा शत्रु मान लिया था । विष्णु को शाप देने के कारण उनका सारा तपोबल नष्ट हो गया था । शुक्राचार्य फिर से तपोबल अर्जित करने के लिए यज्ञ करने लगे । विष्णु का सर्वनाश करना उनके जीवंन का एक मात्र लक्ष्य था ।
भगवान शंकर ने गुरु शुक्राचार्य को समझाने और ऐसा न करने के लिये गंगा को उनके पास भेजा । गंगा ने उनके पास आकर उन्हें बहुत समझया । किन्तु वे तब भी नहीं माने । तत पश्चात शंकर ने नंदी के नेतृत्व में 


अपनी सेना भेजी । जो उन्हें समझाने गए थे कि वे इस प्रतिशोध की भावना को त्याग दें । पर शुक्राचार्य को क्रोध के आगे कुछ नहीं दिख रहा था । उन्होंने नंदी समेत पूरी सेना को घायल कर वहां से भगा दिया ।
यह सब देखने के पश्चात शंकर को बहुत अधिक क्रोध आया । उन्होंने निश्चय कर लिया कि अब वो शुक्राचार्य का संहार कर देंगे । शंकर को अपने समक्ष देख शुक्राचार्य अत्यंत भयभीत हो गए । शंकर ने क्रोध के कारण अपना तीसरा नेत्र खोल लिया । तथा अत्यंत विकराल और बड़ा रूप धारण कर लिया । डर के मारे शुक्राचार्य शंकर के त्रिशूल के नीचे से उसमें घुस गए । शंकर ने अपने त्रिशूल को धनुष की भाँति मोड़ लिया । और शुक्राचार्य को अपने उदर में समा लिया । इस प्रकार शंकर ने गुरु शुक्राचार्य को अपने उदर में समेट कर उनका मान मर्दन किया ।


उसी समय प्रकट होकर बृह्मा ने शंकर को आशीर्वाद दिया कि त्रिशूल को धनुष का आकार देने के कारण आज से आपको संसार में पिनाक के नाम से भी बुलाया जायेगा । तबसे शंकर को पिनाक के नाम से भी जाना जाता है
हिन्दुत्व सभी धर्मों का मूलाधार
हिन्दुत्व को प्राचीन काल में सनातन धर्म कहा जाता था । हिन्दुओं के धर्म के मूल तत्त्व - सत्य । अहिंसा । दया । क्षमा । दान आदि हैं । जिनका शाश्वत महत्त्व है । अन्य प्रमुख धर्मों के उदय के पूर्व इन सिद्धान्तों को प्रतिपादित कर दिया गया था । इस प्रकार हिन्दुत्व सनातन धर्म के रूप में सभी धर्मों का मूलाधार है । क्योंकि सभी धर्म सिद्धान्तों के सार्वभौम आध्यात्मिक सत्य के विभिन्न पहलुओं का इसमें पहले से ही समावेश कर लिया गया था । मान्य ज्ञान जिसे विज्ञान कहा जाता है । प्रत्येक वस्तु या विचार का गहन मूल्यांकन कर रहा है । और इस प्रक्रिया में अनेक विश्वास । मत । आस्था और सिद्धांत धराशायी हो रहे हैं । वैज्ञानिक दृष्टिकोण के आघातों से हिन्दुत्व को भयभीत होने की आवश्यकता नहीं है । क्योंकि इसके मौलिक सिद्धान्तों का तार्किक आधार तथा शाश्वत प्रभाव है ।

आर्य समाज जैसे कुछ संगठनों ने हिन्दुत्व को आर्य धर्म कहा है । और वे चाहते हैं कि - हिन्दुओं को आर्य कहा जाय । वस्तुत: आर्य शब्द किसी प्रजाति का द्योतक नहीं है । इसका अर्थ केवल - श्रेष्ठ है । और बौद्ध धर्म के चार आर्य सत्य की व्याख्या करते समय भी यही अर्थ ग्रहण किया गया है । इस प्रकार आर्य धर्म का अर्थ उदात्त अथवा श्रेष्ठ समाज का धर्म ही होता है । प्राचीन भारत को आर्यावर्त भी कहा जाता था । जिसका तात्पर्य श्रेष्ठ जनों के निवास की भूमि था । वस्तुत: प्राचीन संस्कृत और पालि ग्रन्थों में हिन्दू नाम कहीं भी नहीं मिलता । यह माना जाता है कि परस्य ( ईरान ) देश के निवासी सिन्धु नदी को हिन्दु कहते थे । क्योंकि वे 'स' का उच्चारण 'ह' करते थे । धीरे धीरे वे सिन्धु पार के निवासियों को हिन्दू कहने लगे । भारत से बाहर हिन्दू शब्द का उल्लेख 'अवेस्ता' में मिलता है । विनोबा जी के अनुसार हिन्दू का मुख्य लक्षण उसकी अहिंसा प्रियता है ।


हिंसया दूयते चित्तं तेन हिन्दुरितीरित: । एक अन्य श्लोक में कहा गया है - ॐकार मूलमंत्राढ्य: पुनर्जन्म दृढ़ाशय: । गोभक्तो भारतगुरु: हिन्दुर्हिंसनदूषक: । ॐकार जिसका मूल मंत्र है । पुनर्जन्म में जिसकी दृढ़ आस्था है । भारत ने जिसका प्रवर्तन किया है । तथा हिंसा की जो निन्दा करता है । वह हिन्दू है ।
स्वामी विवकानंद के गुरु श्री रामकृष्ण परमहंस
स्वामी विवकानंद के गुरु श्री रामकृष्ण परमहंस का नाम दुनिया भर में सुविख्यात है । रामकृष्ण परमहंस के विषय में कहा जाता है कि - वे जिस काली मंदिर के पुजारी थे । वहाँ की काली की मूर्ति साक्षात प्रकट होकर परमहंस जी के हाथों से भोजन ग्रहण करती थीं । और उनसे बातचीत भी करती थी । इस चमत्कार के पीछे अटूट श्रृद्धा थी ।
ऐसी ही एक घटना महान भक्त रैदास के जीवन की है । संत रैदास चर्मकार थे । तथा मोची का व्यवसाय करते थे । चमड़े के जूते चप्पल बनाने के काम को वे पूरे दिल से मेहनत लगाकर करते थे । उनके मन में अपने कार्य या व्यवसाय को लेकर कोई शर्म संकोच नहीं था । वे पूरे समय अपने कर्तव्य को ईमानदारी से निभाने में लगे रहते थे । सभी से प्रेम पूर्वक व्यवहार करना । सच्चे मन से सभी का भला चाहना । तथा समय पर काम करके अपने ग्राहक को प्रसन्न रखना ही उनकी रोज की दिनचर्या थी ।
दशहरे का पर्व था । गाँव के मंदिर के साधु बृह्म मुहूर्त में ही स्नान करने के लिये घर से निकले । रैदास की

झोंपड़ी से गुजरते समय उन्होंने रैदास से पूछा - आज दशहरा है । स्नान रकने नहीं चलोगे क्या ? रैदास  ने प्रणाम करते हुए कहा कि - गंगा स्नान करना शायद मेरी किस्मत में नहीं है । क्योंकि मुझे आज ही ग्राहक के जूते बनाकर देना है भाई । साधु से प्रार्थना करते हुए रैदास बोले कि - महाराज यह सिक्का लेते जाईये । मेरी तरफ से इसे गंगा को भेंट चढ़ा देना ।
सिक्का लेकर साधु चल दिये । पूजा पाठ और स्नान करके वापस लौटने लगे । भक्ति भाव में ऐसे डूबे कि - यह भूल ही गए कि रैदास ने गंगा के लिये भेंट भेजी थी । साधु तो रैदास की बात भूल कर चल दिये । लेकिन पीछे से स्त्री की सी कोई दिव्य आवाज आई - रुको । रैदास द्वारा मेरे लिये भेजा गया उपहार तो देते जाओ । और एक दिव्य स्त्री मूर्ति 


के रूप में गंगा प्रकट हो गईं । इस अद्भुत घटना से साधु आश्चर्य चकित रह गए । उन्होंने जल्दी से वह सिक्का निकाल कर देवी के हाथों में रख दिया । यह घटना इतनी अद्भुत थी कि साधु की आंखें फटी की फटी रह गईं । इस घटना के बाद से उनका जीवन ही बदल गया । उन्हें समझ में आ गया कि - भक्ति का असली मतलब क्या होता है । उन्होंने रैदास को अपना गुरु बना लिया ।
आओ फरिश्तों से कुछ बात करें
बहुत उदास है ये रात । कोहरे के लिहाफ ओढ़ कर शायद तुम हो जो झांकती हो मुंडेरों से अभी ।
चाँद की बिंदी लगा लो अपने माथे पर । समझ लो तुम सुहागिन हो ।
तुम्हारी मांग में शफक सिन्दूर भर कर खोगई है भोर में । मैं लौट के आऊँगा देख लेना ।
तन्हाईयों में गूंजती रुबाईयों जैसा । धूप में सूखती रजाईयों जैसा । मैं लौट के आऊँगा देख लेना ।
हादसे में हाँफते सुबह के अखबार में सिमटा । देख लो तुम्हारी गोद में सर रखे सूरज सा लेटा हूँ मैं ।
एक रोशन सच चरागों से चुरा लाया हूँ मैं । तुम्हारी आँख में काजल लगा दूँ रात का ।


मैं खो जाऊंगा तह किये कपड़ों में रखे स्नेह के सुराग सा । मैं याद आऊँगा सूनी मांग से सिन्दूर के संवाद सा । तुम्हारी आँख में काजल लगा दूं रात का । मैं जाता हूँ सितारों ने बुलाया है दूर से मुझको ।
ओढ़ लो कोहरे की चादर । बहुत सर्द है रात । राजीव चतुर्वेदी ।
आज का श्रवण कुमार - मातृ भक्ति की जीती जागती मिसाल
एक युवक अपनी माँ को कांवड़ में बिठाकर पिछले 14 साल से पैदल तीर्थ यात्रा करा रहा है । कलयुग में इस श्रवण कुमार को देखकर लोग हैरान हैं । और इसके संकल्प की सराहना भी कर रहे हैं । यह श्रवण कुमार हैं । मध्य प्रदेश के जबलपुर शहर के कैलाश ।
इन्होने अब तक द्वारिका । रामेश्वरम और कई अन्य तीर्थ स्थल पैदल ही अपने कंधे पर अपने माँ और पिता को लेकर घुमा चुके है । जब ये गुजरात आये थे । तो जगह जगह इनका स्वागत हुआ । कई लोगो ने इनके जज्बे को देखर गाड़ी देने का प्रस्ताव रखा । लेकिन इन्होने ठुकरा दिया । बदरीनाथ धाम में दर्शन के बाद अब वे अपनी मां को लेकर केदारनाथ की यात्रा पर निकले हैं । मातृ देवो भव: । पित्र देवो भव: ।  गुरु देवो भव: ।
राम सेतु के कुछ रोचक तथ्य
जैसा कि रामायण में वर्णित है कि सेतु धनुष आकर का बनाया गया था । राम सेतु धनुष आकार में ही है ।
रामायण के अनुसार यह रामेश्वरम से शुरू होकर लंका तक जाता है । वर्तमान राम सेतु की स्थति बिलकुल यही है ।


रामायण कहती है कि राम सेतु 100 योजन लम्बा । और 10 योजन चौडा था । आज हमें नहीं पता कि योजन कितना होता है ? लेकिन ये तो पता चल ही जाता है । इस बात से कि राम सेतु का अनुपात 1:10 का था । जो कि खोजे गए राम सेतु का भी अनुपात है । अनेक शोध कार्यो से ये भी सिद्ध हुआ है कि - राम सेतु मानव निर्मित ही है ।
मुझे गर्व है कि मैं एक सनातनी हिन्दू हूँ । सनातन हिन्दू धर्म को जानिए ।
1 सनातन हिन्दू धर्म उदार वादी है । मुस्लिम सा कट्टर नहीं । 2 सनातन हिन्दू धर्म मानवता वादी है । वर्ग वादी नहीं । 3 सनातन हिन्दू धर्म विकास वादी है । जड़ वादी नहीं । 4 सनातन हिन्दू धर्म विज्ञान सम्मत है । अवैज्ञानिक नहीं । 5 सनातन हिन्दू धर्म सर्व मंगलकारी है । सम्प्रदाय वादी नहीं । 6 सनातन हिन्दू धर्म लोकतान्त्रिक है । अधिनायक वादी नहीं । इसलिए अज्ञान के अन्धकार से निकल कर हिंदुत्व की और चलें ।
विश्व को शांतिमय और आनंदमय बनायें । और गर्व से कहें कि - हम सनातनी हिन्दू हैं । वन्दे मातरम । बोलिए जय सियाराम ।
अक्ल बङी या भैंस ?
महा मूर्ख दरबार में । लगा अनोखा केस । फँसा हुआ है मामला । अक्ल बङी या भैंस ।
अक्ल बङी या भैंस । दलीलें बहुत सी आयीं । महा मूर्ख दरबार की । अब देखो सुनवाई ।
मंगल भवन अमंगल हारी । भैंस सदा ही अकल पे भारी । भैंस मेरी जब चर आये चारा । पाँच सेर हम दूध निकारा ।
