"No death of consciousness – just death of the body"

Material science in its avantgarde form quantum physics is making serious progress on what is called "The big problem of consciousness". (The spiritual understanding is that consciousness is the symptom of the soul, what we really are.) This article is particularly interesting since Sir Roger Penrose is a well respected, famous and prized professor emeritus at the Oxford University and the article was originally published at the British MSM newspaper The Express.


Consciousness and Quantum Mechanics

By Sean Martin

The possibility of life after death is one of the greatest mysteries of humanity, but now experts are claiming that there is no death of consciousness – just death of the body.

Natures Hidden Teachers

Yew (Taxus Baccata) 

"The Blessed Lord said: There is a banyan tree which has its roots upward and its branches down and whose leaves are the Vedic hymns. One who knows this tree is the knower of the Vedas." (Bhagavad Gita, 15:1)

Yews have held a fascination for me since a very young age. The very aura around this tree conjures the imagination and feelings of awe. Something of the infinite seems to reach out and touch you when standing under the boughs of a venerable and aged yew. It is this tree that sparked my lifelong love of trees.

Oida-kurs på tisdagar

Över linjen

12 tisdagar kl 18.00 med start 13 mars ger Nimaihuset en kurs, andra omgången, baserad på den lilla Oida-boken Healing faith (2017). Ämnet är nihilism* och andlighet. Nihilism som ett epokalt, samtida, föga känt, globalt fenomen. Vad det är, var den kommer från, vad dess verkningar är, vad farorna och möjligheterna är – och hur man övervinner den, och det är här andligheten kommer in. Ytterst handlar det om en inre omställning, med kunskap och verktyg.

Att klarna blicken på den samtida situationen genom det perspektiv som presenteras i Healing faith
Att medvetandegöra objekten för vår inneboende benägenhet till tro – var vi placerar den, och vart vi sålunda är på väg. 
Att ta ut en fokuserad riktning. Med kunskap och praktiker, individuellt anpassade.

Kursen är gratis, men man behöver boken (20 kr i Nimaihuset).
Boken är på engelska men kursen hålls på svenska.

Tid: 18.00 Tisdagar fr o m 13 mars
Plats: Nimaihuset, Underåsgatan 24
Anmälan och information: nimai.arts@gmail.com, eller telefon: 031-405 108

Boken Healing faith är en introduktion till Paramadvaiti Swamis Oida Therapy 
och kan läsas on-line här

*Nihilism: Tros- eller tankesystem eller filosofisk position som förnekar alla absoluta värden och en inneboende mening med livet. Kan också kallas fulländningen av materiellt medvetande – "Jag är kroppen".
Nihilismen är en naturlig konsekvens av 1700-talets Upplysning och är namnet på vår epok. Den kallas 
av de intellektuella 1900-talets (och än mer 2000-talets) stora problem. Den är dock inget ont i sig utan en fas i medvetandets evolution, där nästa steg är uppåt/inåt: andligt medvetande, och därför i förlängningen en potentiell klivsten till Transcendens och ytterst Självförverkligande.

Kursen sker i samarbete med Studiefrämjandet

Natures Hidden Teachers - Personalities Of The Trees

Tulasi - Ocimum tenuiflorum/sanctum

Nimaihusets favorite tree personality Srimati Tulasi devi!

Of all the plant teachers and sacred trees in this series Vrinda Devi is the most important for those of us practising Gaudiya Vaishnavism. All of our nonsense and sinful activities can be removed by her association, or even touching her… thankfully for us a gracefully simple act to achieve!!

Vedic Clock

See here for my latest toy; a clock with 25 arms, one for each unit of time listed in the Srimad Bhagavatam. It illustrates what a "Vedic clock" might look like, which pinpoints the current time from the lifespan of the universe down to a millisecond.

Prabhupada dictionary

Srila Prabhupada used some English words which have unfortunately fallen out of fashion these days. In order to understand his books better, I collected a list of words I was unsure about, and looked up definitions on merriam-webster.com and dictionary.com, choosing the ones which best fit the context in which Prabhupada used the words.

to bear patiently; to endure without yielding; to wait for; to accept without objection

Prayer for Union with Love for All

Prayer for Union with Love for All

Swami B.A. Paramadvaiti's  contemporary interpretation and commentaries to Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's Sri Sri Siksastakam 

A scientific spirituality which will guide you to realize union that brings you together with others. The Prayer for Union with Love for All is a meditation in poetic form, a process of eight natural steps that reveal how to reestablish our personal relation to Inner Peace and Truth. This healing prayer of Gauranga 1486-1534, was originally written in Sanskrit. This meditation will take you to the realization of your purpose as Mother Earth’s child.
