Why Should we visit Temples

There are thousands of temples all over India in different size, shape and locations but not all of them are considered to be built the Vedic way. Generally, a temple should be located at a place where earth's magnetic wave path passes through densely. It can be in the outskirts of a town/village or city, or in middle of the dwelling place, or on a hilltop. The essence of visiting a temple is discussed here.

Now, these temples are located strategically at a place where the positive energy is abundantly available from the magnetic and electric wave distributions of north/south pole thrust. The main idol is placed in the core center of the temple, known as "*Garbhagriha*" or *Moolasthanam*. In fact, the temple structure is built after the idol has been placed. This *Moolasthanam* is where earth’s magnetic waves are found to be maximum. We know that there are some copper plates, inscribed with Vedic scripts, buried beneath the Main Idol. What are they really? No, they are not God’s / priests’ flash cards when they forget the *shlokas*. The copper plate absorbs earth’s magnetic waves and radiates it to the surroundings. Thus a person regularly visiting a temple and walking clockwise around the Main Idol receives the beamed magnetic waves and his body absorbs it. This is a very slow process and a regular visit will let him absorb more of this positive energy. Scientifically, it is the positive energy that we all require to have a healthy life.

Further, the Sanctum is closed on three sides. This increases the effect of all energies. The lamp that is lit radiates heat energy and also provides light inside the sanctum to the priests or *poojaris* performing the pooja. The ringing of the bells and the chanting of prayers takes a worshipper into trance, thus not letting his mind waver. When done in groups, this helps people forget personal problems for a while and relieve their stress. The fragrance from the flowers, the burning of camphor give out the chemical energy further aiding in a different good aura. The effect of all these energies is supplemented by the positive energy from the idol, the copper plates and utensils in the *Moolasthan*am / *Garbagraham*. *Theertham*, the “holy” water used during the pooja to wash the idol is not plain water cleaning the dust off an idol. It is a concoction of Cardamom,*Karpura* (Benzoin), zaffron / saffron, *Tulsi* (Holy Basil), Clove, etc...Washing the idol is to charge the water with the magnetic radiations thus increasing its medicinal values. Three spoons of this holy water is distributed to devotees. Again, this water is mainly a source of magneto-therapy. Besides, the clove essence protects one from tooth decay, the saffron & *Tulsi* leafs protects one from common cold and cough, cardamom and *Pachha Karpuram* (benzoin), act as mouth fresheners. It is proved that *Theertham* is a very good blood purifier, as it is highly energized. Hence it is given as *prasadam* to the devotees. This way, one can claim to remain healthy by regularly visiting the Temples. This is why our elders used to suggest us to offer prayers at the temple so that you will be cured of many ailments. They were not always superstitious. Yes, in a few cases they did go overboard when due to ignorance they hoped many serious diseases could be cured at temples by deities. When people go to a temple for the *Deepaaraadhana*, and when the doors open up, the positive energy gushes out onto the persons who are there. The water that is sprinkled onto the assemblages passes on the energy to all. This also explains why men are not allowed to wear shirts at a few temples and women are requested to wear more ornaments during temple visits. It is through these jewels (metal) that positive energy is absorbed by the women. Also, it is a practice to leave newly purchased jewels at an idol’s feet and then wear them with the idol’s blessings. This act is now justified after reading this article. This act of “seeking divine blessings” before using any new article, like books or pens or automobiles may have stemmed from this through mere observation.

Energy lost in a day’s work is regained through a temple visit and one is refreshed slightly. The positive energy that is spread out in the entire temple and especially around where the main idol is placed, are simply absorbed by one's body and mind. Did you know, every Vaishnava(Vishnu devotees), “must” visit a Vishnu temple twice every day in their location. Our practices are NOT some hard and fast rules framed by 1 man and his followers or God’s words in somebody’s dreams. All the rituals, all the practices are, in reality, well researched, studied and scientifically backed thesis which form the ways of nature to lead a good healthy life.

The scientific and research part of the practices are well camouflaged as “elder’s instructions” or “granny’s teaching’s” which should be obeyed as a mark of respect so as to once again, avoid stress to the mediocre brains

Now, SMS alerts in post offices soon

HYDERABAD: In a novel initiative, India Post will use short message service (SMSs) alert system to deliver dak to citizens. In the new system, people expecting mail, including Speed Post and parcels, will now get an SMS alert before the local postman delivers them at the designated address. India Post (Department of Posts) is making all efforts to launch the system from December second week in post offices across the state.

"We have named the new system 'Mee Uttaram Vachindi' (your letter has come). India Post has tied up with National Informatics Center (NIC) recently. A trail run has begun at some post offices and we got positive response to the service. Andhra Pradesh will be the first state in the country to launch the free SMS alert system, chief postmaster general, AP Circle, B V Sudhakar told TOI.

With the service fully operational, citizens would not miss their dak or would not have to do the rounds of the local post office. At times, postmen find door lock and return the dak without delivering them. "It has become a headache to postmen to visit houses on more than one occasion to deliver the dak. As a result, dak has been piling up at post offices," he added.

"To avoid these problems, India Post has decided to introduce SMS alert to deliver the dak promptly. However, we will need mobile numbers of both the sender and receiver," the official added.

The postman would send an SMS to the addressee an hour before delivering the mail. After delivering the dak, an SMS would also be sent to the sender stating 'letter delivered.'

Encouraging employees for more contributions

1.Understand your employees. 

Being the leader of the subordinate employees, the manager must be fully aware of the characteristics of each person. By having conversations every day, the manager can find our their thoughts and wants as well as changes in their thinking to help them overcome obstacles in their personal life and their work. Also, the manager should frequently ask himself if he has provided his employees with adequate information and if he deserves to be the person for them to rely on.  

2.Create the desire to make a breakthrough. 

Encourage employees to make great changes to improve if you want them to do a great job. 

3.Connect employees' responsibilities. 

Not all employees in the same department can understand their colleagues' duties. The manager has to explain clearly the role of each person in the big picture, especially when taking a new task. 

4.Focus on new activities. 

The manager himself has to try to do something new and appear to be passionate so that his employees must also be engaged. Find out what makes the employees feel excited and empowered and create conditions for those motivators to take place. 

5.Emphasize the bright side of the job. 

Ask the employees what they like about their current job, by which cleverly remind them to keep on moving up. Help them to change the thought of trying to finish their job into a desire to accelerate to get the job done. 

6.Always be optimistic. 

Everybody often observes the manager to predict the situation and decide on their actions. The manager shouldn't seem too worried but should be smiling to cheer up the employees. 

7.Practice how to present issues clearly and decisively. 

The manager must be able to get the information across to his employees in a succinct and precise way. If there is still a misunderstanding among the employees, think that you are not good at presenting and improve yourself right away. When the manager takes his own responsibilities, the employees will be no more afraid of their ideas being dismissed.  

8.Eliminate absurd thoughts of employees. 

Many employees want to be promoted without any changes. The manager has to make it clear to them that only efforts to improve to have better performance and make more contributions for the business will bring about fast promotion. 

9.Highly appreciate those who bravely face obstacles. 

When a tough task scares many employees but one person is willing to take the challenge, the manager should immediately praise her and give her a lot of support to complete the new task. On preliminary or final summing up the performance of the department, those employees who dare to think, to do, and to take responsibilities must be generously rewarded. 

10.Accept some exceptions. 

There must be favorable conditions for all initiatives to be realized. As a result, on seeing suggestions that promise to bring about good results, the manager should consider and make decisions quickly, which can include exceptions for idea applying. If such decisions are not made, initiatives may die easily in their infancy. 

“Yogah Karmasu Kaushalam”

Lord Krishna talks to Arjuna in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2 Verse 50 about “Yogah Karmasu Kaushalam” – Yoga is excellence at work. 

  • This verse advice's us to perform our allocated duty in an excellent manner. 
  • Kaushalam signifies doing work with devotion and without attachment i.e. without becoming a workaholic. 
  • Such detached attitude enhances its values and improves the concentration and skill of the worker. 
  • If we work with elegance, fortitude, and skill our Body-Mind-Soul will co-operate with our hands. 
  • By becoming a tool in the hands of Supreme one has to perform the work. 
  • Any work becomes valuable if carried out with full concentration, dedication, and abilities and also helps us to become valuable to others as well as to society. 
  • We should never yearn over the fruits of action. 
  • The extrinsic incentives e.g., money, other bonus, etc. play a very minor role as motivators. 
  • The reward of a thing well done is to have done it says Ralph Waldo Emerson. 
We have failed to convert knowledge into wisdom. To convert knowledge into wisdom, so essential for obtaining a dynamic personality, it is essential to rise to the level of Buddhi. At this level, it is possible to combine executive efficiency with social efficiency and transform brute efficiency into humanized efficiency. It means that yoga should be the technique of doing work.

What is Yoga?

Yoga literally means Yukta (united) with self. To understand the implication of the motto, we have to see the full verse along with the two preceding verses:

Yogastha kuru karmani sangang tyaktva Dhananjaya l
Sidhyasidhyoh samo bhutva samatvang yoga uchyate ll 

Be steady in yoga, Arjun, do whatever you must do; give up attachment, be indifferent to failure and success. This stability (samatva-buddhi) is yoga. (P. Lal's translation)

Durena hyabarang karma buddhiyogat Dhananjaya l
Buddhau saranamanviccha kripana phalahetaba ll

Selfish work is inferior to the work of a balanced uncoveting mind; shelter yourself in this mental stability (samatva-buddhi), Arjuna. Harassed are the seekers of the fruits of action. (P. Lal)

Buddhiyukto jahatiha ubhe sukritadushkrite l
Tasmadyogaya yujyaswa yogah karmasu kaushalam ll 

With this mental poise, you will free your self from good deeds and ill deeds. Devote yourself to this yoga; it is the secret of success in work.

This mental poise is buddhi. This buddhi or 'intelligent will' as Sri Aurobindo calls it, is not affected by good work or bad work or with their result. Buddhi is indifferent to results. Here, there is no desire of fruits or desire for power. Buddhi is samabuddhi - looking at everyone and everything with the same eye. That is Yoga and that is the technique that is to be adopted for doing work. Buddhi guides one to be united with the higher self. And therefore this buddhi is yoga and yoga is the skill of performing, remaining united with yoga. Meaning of yoga is made clear by Krishna in verse 48. The samatva-buddhi or stability is yoga.

Swami Ranganathananda describes yoga as 'the path to achieve a fullness of personality development. That, when transferred to work, helps one to achieve all-round excellence in performance.' Elsewhere he says, 'Yoga is the philosophy of life and action capable of ensuring individual and collective welfare. It makes one work without discrimination and with equality achieving samatva (Justice). Yoga gives one the power of concentration, single-minded devotion, full control of mind and body and increases insight and understanding.'

Dr. S. Radhakrishnan says, ' He is rid of selfishness and therefore is incapable of evil' yoga is evenness of mind in success or failure, possessed by one who is engaged in the performance of his proper duties, while his mind rests in God.' 

Work is also explained in verse 49. Any work is not work. Selfish work is inferior to the work of a balanced and uncoveting mind (buddhiyoga or buddhiyukta mind). Therefore, one must take shelter in this mental stability. Work therefore is not as important as the buddhi of the worker. If the worker is endowed with buddhi then whatever he does is bound to be relevant. Buddhi is intellect, which is capable of making a choice between, relevant and irrelevant and chooses self-realization as the only guiding factor determining action. It makes a person wise enabling him to shed both sukrita (good deeds) and duskrita (ill deeds), leaving only one alternative with man, i.e., self-realization. Therefore the buddhiyukta, hopefully, our civil servant, will have the capacity to shed choices, adopt yoga which will make him incapable of taking evil action and enable him to strive for self-realization by doing his duties successfully through yoga.

What finally is aimed at is the concept of Rajarshi, enshrined in Chapter 4 of Gita. A public servant should be like Gita's Rajarshi. A Rajarshi is a combination of the qualities of a Raja, a King and a Rishi, a sage. Raja is one who shines in responsibility, Ranjate Virajate. He also pleases, ranjate. Mahabharata (Shantiparva) describes the king thus: Ranjitascha prajah sarvastena rajeti shabdayate (one who pleases his subjects is called a Raja). His qualities are power and efficiency. On the other hand, the principal quality of a sage is his wisdom. A Rajarshi therefore has the power and efficiency of a king and the wisdom of a Rishi. His efficiency and energy enables him to perform and his wisdom, his darshan, guides him in that performance of duties. The civil servant must be able to become a Rajarshi ' a combination of power, efficiency, professionalism and wisdom to achieve welfare of people. If the administrator has a small darshan, he becomes static, a burden. With a large darshan, he is Rajarshi, a dynamic force with wisdom and the sense and capability of taking responsibility of the masses. Obviously extraordinary effort is required to achieve this extraordinary energy and this synthesis of power with responsibility, strength of character, clear thinking, dedication and practical efficiency.

And the secret of secrets, the essence, is in the last verse of Gita:

Yatra yogeshwara Krishno yatra Partho dhanurdharah l
Jatra srirvijayo bhutirdhruba nitirmatirmama ll

'Where Krishna, lord of yoga, is,
Where Arjun, wielder of the bow, is,
Are victory, success, prosperity and law,
I am convinced of this.' (the P. Lal transcreation)

This will also ensure the achievement of lokasangraha of which Gita says in chapter III

Sakta karmayavidyanso yatha kurvanti Bharata l
Kuryatvidvangstathasaktaschikirshulokasangraham ll 

The wise man must act even as the work-obsessed fool does
But shedding selfishness and pursuing knowledge ll (P. Lal)

Lokaraksha implies that people without wisdom work for self. Wise people work for others. Lokasamgraha is holding together of people in the way of dharma. How does one do that? Just before this verse Krishna speaks about setting an example ' 'I do not need to work but still I do just to set an example for other people to follow, because people will always imitate a superior, following the example set by his action.' (21-23/3). Therefore, the civil servant must set an example for people that increases his credibility and while doing work uses state-power for the fulfillment of the desires of the people thereby pleasing them. All this will work towards the achievement of the ideal of lokasamgraha, which is in any case one of the responsibilities of the civil servant.

Buddha, while lying on his deathbed, was asked by Ananda, his disciple,

'Lord, after your departure who should we go to clear our doubts?'
Buddha said, 'Atmano Deepo Bhava' (Be like a lamp; be a light unto thyself).

Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!!!!!!"

A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat." 

"Is the man of the house home?", they asked. 

"No", she replied. "He's out." 
"Then we cannot come in", they replied. 

In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened. 

"Go tell them I am home and invite them in!" 

The woman went out and invited the men in"

"We do not go into a House together," they replied.

"Why is that?" she asked. 

One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth," he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, "He is Success, and I am Love." Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home." 

The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. 

"How nice!!", he said. "Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!"

His wife disagreed. "My dear, why don't we invite Success?"

Their daughter-in-law was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: "Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!" 

"Let us heed our daughter-in-law's advice," said the husband to his wife. 

"Go out and invite Love to be our guest." 

The woman went out and asked the 3 old men, "Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest." Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other 2 also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: "I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?" 

The old men replied together: "If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would've stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him. 

Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!!!!!!"

Postal Department Orders : Counting of training period (Prior to posting) for drawing increments

Postal Department Orders : Counting of training period (Prior to posting) for drawing increments

No 4/2008 400 (Corr)
Government of India
Ministry of Communications & IT
Department of Posts
(Establishment Division)

Dak Bhawan, Sansad Marg
New Delhi - 110001
Dated: 14.10.2013

Sub: Counting of training period (Prior to posting) for drawing increments.

This has the reference to your office letter 127/PM/G II/C-266 dated 17.07.2013 on the subject cited above.

2. In this context, I am directed to convey that GIO (1) below FR 26 provides that where a person has been selected for regular appointment and before formally taking over the charge of the post for which selected person is required to undergo training, training period undergone by such a Government servant whether on remuneration or otherwise counts as duty for the purpose of drawing increments.  This order is applicable only in case of direct recruits.  Further Rule 10 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 provides that employees completing six months and above in the Revised pay strucutre as on 01st Jul will be eligible to be granted the increment.  Thus, from the contents of GIO (1) below FR 26 read with Rule 10 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008, it is clear that "a Government servant who has completed the six month service including training period (whether on remuneration or otherwise) as on 01st Jul will be eligible for increment."  This is applicable only in case of direct recruits.

This issues with the concurrence of DDG (PAF) vide Diary NO. TTL-4-PEA dated 11.10.2013.
