Third eye

When Greek philosopher Pythagoras reached Egypt to enter a school -- a secret esoteric school of mysticism -- he was refused entry. And Pythagoras was one of the best minds ever produced. He could not understand it. He applied again and again, but was told that unless he goes through a particular training of fasting and breathing he cannot be allowed entry. 

Pythagoras is reported to have said: "I have come for knowledge, not for any sort of discipline." But the school authorities said: "We cannot give you knowledge unless you are different. And really, we are not interested in knowledge at all; we are interested in actual experience. No knowledge is knowledge unless it is lived and experienced. So you will have to go on a 40-day fast, continuously breathing in a certain manner, with a certain awareness on certain points."

There was no other way, so Pythagoras had to pass through this training. After 40 days of fasting and breathing, aware and attentive, he was allowed to enter the school. Pythagoras reportedly said: "You are not allowing Pythagoras in. I am a different man; I am reborn. You were right and I was wrong, because then, my whole standpoint was intellectual. Through this purification, my centre of being has changed.

From the intellect it has come down to the heart. Now I can feel things. Before this training I could only understand through the intellect, through the head. Now I can feel. Now truth is not a concept to me, but life. It is not going to be a philosophy, but rather, an experience -- existential."

What was that training he went through? The technique was as follows: Attention between eyebrows, let mind is before thought. Let form fill with breath essence to the top of the head and there, shower as light.

Pythagoras went with this technique to Greece, and really, he became the fountainhead, the source of all mysticism in the West. This technique is among the deep methods. Try to understand it.

Modern physiology says that between the two eyebrows is the gland that is the most mysterious part of the body. This gland, called the pineal gland, is the third eye to Tibetans. It is the Shivnetra, the eye of the Shiva, of tantra. Between the two eyes there exists a third eye, but it is non-functioning. You have to do something to open it. Otherwise, it remains closed.

Close your eyes and focus both eyes on space in the middle of your eyebrows. Give total attention to it. This is one of the simplest methods of being attentive. You cannot be attentive to any other part of the body so easily. This gland absorbs attention like anything. If you give attention to it, both your eyes become hypnotised with the third eye. They become fixed; they cannot move. The third eye forces attention. It is magnetic. Your attention is brought to it forcibly. It is absorbed.

It is said in ancient tantra scriptures that for the third eye, attention is food. And once you feel that the gland itself is magnetically pulling your attention, it is not so difficult. For the first time you will see thoughts running before you. You will become the witness. It is just like a film screen: thoughts are running and you are a witness. Dead

While I was in BIT, I with applegrew's idea and help of two amazing people Debjit Saha and Himanshu Ojha started BIT LUG (read about it in BIT gets lug)..
Last year when I left BIT, I kept in touch and people wanted to start a website since it was difficult to get finance, sponsorship etc. So, while buying, I also got and gave them full freedom over the domain. Even once when they wanted to change the name server I was in delhi without any internet etc. Still I found a way to change it so they could host easily. But after an year of getting the domain nothing was up on the site except for a default wordpress page..
For months I kept calling and emailing them telling them to put something up, but instead they kept giving lame excuses like they had exams etc.. (mind you their own website got updated regularly but for them to take out one day for was toooooo much).
Anyways, a month back I sent out a warning email saying that I would no longer support the domain if there is no progress. Still there was no response..
So, with a heavy heart on 22 december  I terminated the domain and on 24 december the person incharge of BIT LUG (without emailing me) make a blog that the domain going down is not his fault as he is low on man power.!! (does making a website require an year..??)
Anyways, what is done is done.. It was a sad loss..
But anyone one genuinely interested n making a BIT LUG website do contact me..
I will give you a webspace to make a website and then get the domain back to it..

Nokia N900 : Getting Root

I got my N900 and wanted to do something.. after a alot of surfing I found ways and this is just to make it easy for everyone else..

First stop... Getting root access..
Remember that "sudo" password does not work so you will have to break it.. here is how in simple steps

There are different methods for Root Access, but this one is simplest.
  1. First of all you need to enable the “Extras”. You can do it by simply opening this link on your maemo device. You can do it manually as well:
    1. Go into the Application manager.
    2. Tap the menu -> Tools -> Application catalog…
    3. Double-tap maemo Extras.
    4. Uncheck Disabled.
  2. Now install this Rootsh on your device.
  3. Open xTerminals on your device and run this command sudo gainroot
  4. Now you are able to access the root of your device.

Nokia "Nothing is in Warrenty"

I have a Nokia N97 facing too many trobles even with customer care..
I have started mailing them and will update this space..

 This is a message regaring my experience with nokia customer care.. dealing with my N97

I had got my N97 las year and from the begining it was giving some problem. Initally Nokia care were very supportive.

In April my unlocking key came off all on its own noia care said "sir, his is an accessary and is not covered in warrenty". I love my N97. I said OK. and paid them around Rs2000 for the replacement and additional for extending my warrenty.

That was in bhopal.

Recently, I had to come to delhi for two months. and my cell was giving problem in charging and the Menu key was not working/. Mainly due to the charging problem I went to the Nokia care in Hudson lane at delhi.

Out there I found out that the customer care at Bhopal had not extended my warrenty. Anyways my cell was still in warrenty by one day. SO they took my cell. After half an hour of waiting they called me in and showed me tiny white dot even not worth mentioning. According to them liquid had entered which spoiled my Menu key. (Myself being a geek am very careful.) SO they said warrenty was void. I took back my cell being frustrated. Being an engineer in electronics and communication I am fully aware of the fact that any electronics that gets spoiled will show some signs either a whitness or burning. So according to Nokia "Nothing is in warrenty??" because either there will be "something cosmetic" or "something black (burned)" or "something white (liquid)" which is NOT covered under warrenty.

Being a Nokia fan I am beining to think that being faithful to Nokia may be my biggest mistake..

You were the Angel of my life

You were the Angel of My Life

You were my strength,
When I thought I could not go on.. 

You were my happiness,
When sadness surrounded me..

You understood me,
When I myself could not..

You were by my side,
When no one was..

You were the light,
In the darkness of my Life..

But now when my life is in light,
The light which got me here is not..

But still your memories are and forever will be the light of my Life...
