Yogic thought for the day

Asunya, a yogic term: That which u seek is not the void, though a lot of people think it is. It is Asunya -- voidless. Meaning, you can only reach it by negation (Not this, not this -- Neti, Neti) but it cannot directly be reached because it has no comparable memory  in the human experience. It is a reality and a not void. It is an emptiness which is full... Or so they say... U can guess it, but not discuss it:) And so and so forth... Words reach it, but fail to express it, Vedanta says... If you talk of Dharma, it is not the Dharma, so the Buddhists say:)  It can never be attempted by the ego... that thing has to fall before u go into the voidless void...

We fear it... specially those of us headed that way... when the fear falls then, only, That..

Mam,

Was your blog account security compromised recently? Few days back, when i typed this URL in my browser, it went to a Christian evangelical site and it remained so for a few consecutive days.Not sure if anyone else faced the same problem.
