Mother Gnosis – 108 Arrived!

“This book is a profound and moving devotional song to the Mother. Truly, a gem from the heart of a true devotee. The text enchants one into a deep devotional meditation on the multiple aspects of the Mother. The paintings are superb, original and deeply evocative. With only this small book, I believe that one can profoundly enter into the mysteries of the Mother and develop an effective praxis. To be studied, not only read, a true Lectio Divina. A Tantra. “

“In “Mother Gnosis”, Kalavati Devi has combined her extensive knowledge and background in Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India, together with her visionary art skills and in-spired poetry all dedicated to the Divine Mother of the Universe Herself, Kali MAA. What truly adds to this work is Kalavati Devi’s own personal interaction and intimate journey with this all too often misunderstood Deity. Be ready to be awe-spired as you become absorbed in her story, words and art-filled images.”

Tantra ~ “What it is and is not” with Baba KrishnaKali Das

Welcome back to Healthier Vibrations. Today I am delighted to have a special guest Baba KrishnaKali Das on Healthier Vibrations podcast to discuss TANTRA.

Baba has been practicing Eastern Spirituality for over 30 years, teaching internationally for 20 and years and initiating spiritual aspirants in Mantra Deeksha and Tantra Sadhana the past 10 years. Guruji is a devotee of the Divine Mother as Kali Maa. Baba initiates suitable candidates into Vaishnav Aghori, Nath Aghori, Kapalik and Kaula Tantra Lineages through direct guru parampara.

In this discussion Baba discusses how tantra has become greatly misunderstood, gives a short introduction regarding the history of tantra and speaks upon what tantra is and is not.

“Tantra is misunderstood and exploited both East and West. In the East it is at times misunderstood as black magick by the uneducated and superstitious, and in the West it is exploited due to ignorance and greed as sexual therapy and a mean to better orgasms. The aim of Tantra is none of these things.The aim of Tantra is none of these things. Tantra is derived from two Sanskrit words – Tanoti, meaning to expand, and Trayate, meaning to liberate. Tantra is the ancient art and science of expanding and liberating consciousness through soliciting Shakti, the Primal Energy of the Universe.” excerpt from Freedom is our birthright – read more from Baba at the website Empowerment Through Tantra.

Dandelion Sauté – Recipe – Medical Properties and Nutritional Benefits

Dandelions, also known as simhadanti or lion’s tooth, are often viewed as weed, ripped out, thrown away or sprayed with weed killer. Before eradicating them from your yard, get to know their medicinal uses. Taraxacum officinalis, is the botanical name since one to the chief constituents of the plant is taraxacin, a bitter glycoside. In English it is also affectionately called blowball, priest’s crown, puffball, swine snout, wild endive or dandelion.

The whole plant is edible and nutritious. The leaves, flowers and shoots can be sautéed or stirfried. The leaves can be added to salads. I often place 1 cup of leaves into the blender with 1 cup water for a gentle detox juice. Or you can make a saute.

Navigating Health through Mother Nature’s Seasons

Did you know that for thousands of years, Ayurveda has illustrated the importance of living in harmony with the changing seasons. When we connect with Mother Earth through gardening and observation, we connect to Her changing seasons and witness what special nutrients are being offered during each seasonal shift. For instance, this summer, I look forward to enjoying the medicinal benefits of cilantro greens that I planted. Fresh cilantro greens help to regulate digestion, support the liver and reduce heavy metal build up in the body. Once the cilantro plant bolts, I will be able to harvest the coriander seeds which have their own unique medicinal profile.

Ahimsa – Yamas of Yoga

Ahimsa is a concept that has been promoted in most forms of spirituality for millennia. The word ahimsa embraces the concept of non-violence and compassion. Ahimsa was written about extensively in the yoga sūtras of Patañjali around 400 CE . Ahimsa is the first of the yamas – self restraints – in yogic philosophy. On the surface this concept of non-violence advocates refraining from physically harming another human out of malice. Ahimsa, the concept of not causing physical harm seems straight forward when we talk about murder, rape, shooting, stabbing, torture and punching. However, there are mixed beliefs about violence as it applies to appropriate self defense or even defensive war. As we know in this Kali yuga, times can get wild, unpredictable and dark. This is the time more than ever to guide our actions and thoughts towards peace.
