Greetings from this side!
After gestating for a long time, here it is expelled the second edition of Sitra Ahra, electronic publication of occult philosophy, philosophy draconian, LHP (Left Hand Path) and the like, and going far beyond the current and the new age fad pseudoesotérico and pseudoespiritualista mercenary mass. Sitra Ahra is also free of sectarianism, fundamentalism and esquisoterismos misticoides, striving for freedom of expression, thought and knowledge dissemination "damned". MsSVig
Greetings from this side!
Expelled from the "other side" to the ordinary world and current, the first edition of Sitra Ahra, electronic publication of occult philosophy, philosophy draconian and LHP, aiming to show the "other side" of things ...
"Sitra Ahra" means "other side" in Hebrew. In occult philosophy and draconian, this "other side" is considered the early universe, a universe pre-cosmic chaos that precedes the existence of all things. Simply put, Sitra Ahra is a world apparently very "distant" and "contrary" to the ordinary world, the universe is supposedly known. Sitra Ahra is the womb from which comes all the vast multitude of the universe manifested and unmanifested, therefore, the manifestation of the primordial female powers and the representation of the night, the mystery, the hidden, the secret.

In Hinduism it is used a lot to Vedic Astrology, which teaches us that the fact that a person be born with certain planets in your chart, brings a karmic baggage, as both favorable and unfavorable aspects. Western astrology says that there are no remedies to resolve or mitigate the unfavorable aspects, in contrast to Vedic Astrology teaches that yes has ways to mitigate or even extinguish the bad aspects that particular planet influences a particular person. One is the "Mantras". Since the universe is dynamic, constantly changing the layout cosmic and often brings our life adverse consequences imposing pain, sorrow and suffering. Because they are closer to other celestial bodies, the rays of the planets are the ones that have the greatest influence on our mind and psyche. Being willing planets unfavorably, Vedic astrology suggests recite mantras to annihilate these adverse consequences.
Assuming that the microcosm of the macrocosm arose, we can safely deduce that the two are trained to the same standards. This means that they have the same energy, elements and everything. Thus, the human body in its entirety has seven elements and continuously receives the energies of the cosmos. The processing of these energy centers are called chakras.
Modern science is coming to the conclusion that most diseases are psychosomatic or result from the imbalance of vital energy that flows within the body. In ancient times, the wise know the power of sound, developed the concept of ragas, using music to restore the energy balance. Through deep meditation and living with nature, realized that certain sets of notes, invoked within discipline and rules, give the musician the fundamental requirements for all improvisation in Indian music. Also realized that the vibration of certain notes or set of notes and melodies cause changes in the chakras, catalyzing or decreasing functions. These changes psychophysical energy and change the state of consciousness of the musician and listener.
With this proposal, we designed this album contains 7 tracks corresponding to each of the chakras. At the beginning of each track is sung the mantra of the element (earth, water, fire, air, ether, operative energy and consciousness) of each chakra, followed by their respective raga as vocal and instrumental.

All matter is composed of energy that is present in the universe, from the "Absolute", from which everything emanates and to which all returns. The entrance of this vital energy in the human body occurs through the prana and is processed through the chakras - the energy centers.
When the chakras are unable to process and disseminate this energy properly then arise psychic disorders, mental and physical, which can disturb the stability of the internal environment of the body, thus resulting in various diseases, including stress too.
Mantras are the means not only to restore the function of the chakras, but to elevate the human condition to the more conscious, to which we all aspire.

The legacy of Caraka is an ambitious “retelling” of the Caraka-saṃhitā, the earliest extant Sanskrit medical manual dating from the early to mid-second century ce. M S Valiathan, a western-trained cardiologist, provides us with a reorganized version of the text in which he has rearranged and condensed the material found in all eight sthānas (“sections”) of the Sanskrit original. He has organized the material according to theme. In his introduction, Valiathan properly highlights the philosophical and religious eclecticism of the Caraka-saṃhitā, emphasizing its non-dogmatic nature. The text's author, Caraka, most likely a physician at the court of Devaputra Kaniṣka, a second-century king of the Kushan empire, was, as Valiathan writes, not a “passive borrower of ideas, and in this case whatever was borrowed, underwent a transformation in his mint” (p. ii).
Though generally a very useful book, the introduction is marred by moralizing fabulations (pp. xv–xvi). Valiathan also strains to establish a continuity of tradition from the much older Atharva-veda, which delineates a medicine that is largely based on the deployment of mantras and the bestowing of amulets, up through Caraka's text. He writes of Atharvan “echoes” in the Caraka-saṃhitā, but “echoes” by nature are interpretively suggestive. Valiathan also states that the Atharva-veda “anticipates” the tridoṣa (or “trihumoral”) system of Caraka, but does not provide us with any textual evidence or “proof” to enforce this point of view. But that said, Valiathan includes in his introduction a most useful discussion of diseases, and by systematically plotting the recurrence of the names of disorders in Caraka's text, he attempts to reconstruct the “epidemiologic scene … in Caraka's period through the mist of twenty centuries” (p. xlvi). Fever, of course, wins.
The book is strewn with many observations—some of them quite insightful—that speculate on major āyurvedic theories (particularly on tridoṣa and vega, or “urge”) and how they may be thought about in terms of western medical science. As long as we remain solidly in the realm of analogy and do not wander into the problematic realm of correspondence, such speculations are useful, and can serve to deepen a reader's understanding of how these theories “work” in a physiological sense.
Valiathan's section on rasas (“tastes”) is particularly good, and the tables that he provides are of great value (e.g. Table 16.1, pp. 107–8, which lists food incompatibilities). He has also chosen to condense the more unwieldy and elaborate portions of the Caraka-saṃhitā, but he never does so without alerting readers to the fact. His “digests” are made with great care—Valiathan never sacrifices the underlying logics and principles prevailing in these portions; in fact, they shine through a bit more clearly than in the original text precisely because of his condensations. The words of modern science and medicine do creep in now and then—“ova”, for instance—and translators as well as the new redactors of Caraka such as Valiathan would do well to avoid making such equations whenever possible (but this is admittedly hard to avoid). Valiathan's decision to provide digests for the lengthier chapters works especially well in his treatments of the Kalpa and Siddhi-sthānas (the sections on “pharmacology” and “cures” respectively), where literally hundreds of formulas for emetics and purgatives are listed.
The legacy of Caraka will prove useful as a reference book, and I can imagine assigning sections of it for use in general introductory courses on South Asian cultures and civilizations as well as in more specialized courses on medical anthropology and the history of medicine. Valiathan concludes his book with a list of botanical terms and an excellent glossary. Reading the entire book will help to attune the reader's own intuitions and expectations about how the systems of āyurveda work. MsSVig

Yan De-xin is one of the leading "old Chinese doctors" in the People's Republic of China today. His theories on blood stasis and aging have revolutionized 2,000 years of Chinese geriatric medicine. Besides being a clinical manual on the treatment of all the most commonly seen geriatric diseases, this book contains the best discussion of the inter-relationship of the qi and blood of any so far in the English language. This book is an important addition to the English language Chinese medical literature.
Peter Deadman in The Journal of Chinese Medicine 51 wrote:
|Yan De-Xin is a famous 'old doctor' whose original theories and clinical work on aging have won him various prizes in China. It is well known that conventionally traditional Chinese medicine ascribes aging itself, and many of the diseases that accompany it, primarily to deficiency and decline, especially of the Kidneys and Spleen, and senility-combating formulas mostly stress supplementation of yin or yang. By contrast, Dr. Yan holds that blood stasis resulting from disharmony of qi and blood is the primary pathological state in old age, reflected by the saying "Life consists of transportation and stirring" and "Life consists of balance". Disharmony of qi and blood includes such patterns as qi deficiency and blood stasis, qi stagnation and blood stasis, rebellion of both qi and blood etc. Once blood is static, other patterns may emerge, for example heat may be generated, fluids may fail to move resulting in the formation of phlegm, or failure of free flow may lead to deficiency, reflecting the theory that blood stasis is itself a secondary cause of disease. Dr Yan states:|
we can see that, in the senility of the human body, vacuity is only a symptom, while stasis is its root. Vacuity is the result, while stasis is the cause. The root of human senility consists of static blood ... I have personally observed that, after entering the period of old age, human beings typically manifest marked symptoms of blood stasis. For example, the appearance of skin pigmentation, rough skin, sclerotic opacitis, and senile plaques are all typical manifestations of blood stasis. Among the commonly seen geriatric diseases such as arteriosclerosis, hypertension, coronary heart diseases, windstroke, senile dementia, prostatic hyperplasia, and diseases of vertebrae in the neck, the cause of these diseases and their clinical manifestations are all related to blood stasis.
In this important book, Dr. Yan first lays down the theoretical foundations of his theory with references to many classics, and examines the symptoms and signs of blood stasis according to both Chinese and Western medicine. He then gives 10 primary 'balancing' presc
One of the dominant characteristics of aging is loss of flexibility and increasing stiffness in both the body and mind. Recent research has clearly demonstrated the great value of moving and exercising the body to counteract this stasis, and it is no great surprise to see this basic concept emphasised so strongly in the clinical treatment of diseases of aging. Whether moving blood stasis should be seen as quite such a universally applicable principle of geriatrics, or one that should be applied appropriately, will be decided by many years of clinical experimentation with Dr. Yan's theories. Certainly the principle should be absorbed by every practitioner, and we should be grateful to Dr. Yan for his originality and innovation
Ashtanga Hridaya is the third major treatise on Ayurveda. It was written by Vagbhata around the 7th century (AD 500). It is predominantly based on the teachings of Charaka and Susruta Samhitas though it also gives its own views on different topics. It contains information regarding the two schools of ayurveda, namely the school of surgery and the school of physicians.

Simple Explanation of Work Ideas
By Maurice Nicoll
Dr. Maurice Nicoll was an early student and proponent of the Gurdjieff Work. Dr. Nicoll led groups involved in the study and practice of Gurdjieff's ideas in England untill his death in 1953. He complied an extensive series of talks and introductions to practical effort that is one of the major literary contributions offered by Gurdjieff's early pupils.
p. one wrote:
|Everyone is two people - the person we suppose ourselves to be, and what we really are. Only Self-Observation shows us this. We cannot understand that we are two people unless we begin to understand what it means to observe ourselves. We see a world outside: that is what our senses give us. But the senses are turned outwards from oneself and cannot see what one is.|
But we have an organ inside ourselves which can observe this thing called oneself. By means of it we can see our thoughts, feelings, moods. This is the beginning of becoming another person.
Our life depends on this thing called 'oneself. If we wish to have a different life, we first of all have to realise what kind of life we have now. All forms of suffering are due to this 'oneself. As long as we remain this 'oneself our life cannot alter. It will always attract the same misfortunes, disappointments, and so on.
So the Work begins with seeing what one is like, what kind of person one is. For example, if we treat people without consideration for their feelings and do not know it, we shall always be suffering from their wish to keep away from us. But not seeing what we are like we blame others. Unless we see that we are behaving like this we cannot change. Other people realise what we are like: as we are, we do not - until we begin to observe ourselves. Through not seeing what we are like, we believe we are not properly treated.
If we observe what we are thinking and feeling, what we are saying, how we are acting, after a time a new memory begins, a memory about ourselves. From then on, we begin to realise we are not what we supposed ourselves to be. We will begin to behave differently, not to blame other people, not to feel owed something. We will begin to realise we are two people and always have been. What we have supposed ourselves to be is imaginary.
It is exactly as the title says: a simple explanation of work ideas. Nicoll has done well to pre-digest this teaching so that those unfamiliar with the teaching can be nourished by it. It covers the necessary basic concepts of genuine self-transformation, addressing man, not as he is, but as he can be. This book is not for those who are 'into self-help' or the popular spiritual discipline of the day. It is for those who are sincere in their wish to be different, to contact the inner circles of mankind through which the teachings originate. While first contact with it is superficial, any actual and sincere efforts made according to this books suggestion, will reveal deeper and deeper layers of the essential human being that one is.
This is a fairly short read, and yet it arrives due to a great effort spanning mny lifetimes. Read this with reverence. It is for real. MsSVig
The Magic Candle : Facts and Fundamentals of Ritual Candle-Burning (1982)
A nice little book that is as concise as it is helpful. Charmaine delves into planetary timing, color correspondences, candle types and the formula of ritual candle-burning.
The main ob
It doesn't matter what your religion is. You really don't have to be religious (or anti-religious) at all. Candle burning is a psychic and psychological experience, and may compliment your particular faith by arranging your rituals to blend into it. Nevertheless, you need not do anything which you feel is inharmonious with your personal beliefs, as there are countless alternatives.
There are countless authorities and traditions which attempt to tell you precisely what to do in each type of candle-burning ritual or "spell," but few which attempt to explain the reasons why it must be just so. The actual reason is because that is what works best for them - but does it mean anything to you?
The one basic simple fact we can feel sire of is that the act of burning candles does indeed cause and altered state of awareness, producing changes in circumstances. Think of the millions of men and women who have been persuaded and seduced, or extracted promises and proposals, concluded business deals, patched up squabbles, and resolved differences of opinion in the glowing magic of a candlelight supper. And many a birthday wish has come true when all the candles were blown out! MsSVig
