According to a report by AOL News, about half of the sunscreens tested contained vitamin A ingredients and derivatives like retinol and retinyl palmitate, which FDA's own studies have shown are photocarcinogenic, meaning they become toxic when exposed to sunlight. In fact, an older FDA report explains that sunscreens containing vitamin A ingredients cause tumors and lesions to develop and spread 21 percent faster than sunscreens that do not contain vitamin A ingredients.

In total, a mere 7.8 percent of the sunscreens tested by EWG as part of its annual analysis turned out to be "safe and effective" according to the group's safety standards. The other 92.2 percent, which represent hundreds of sunscreens on the market today, contain one or more ingredients known to be harmful to health, a shocking figure when considering their widespread use.

Eileen Luders, a visiting assistant professor at the UCLA Laboratory of Neuro Imaging, and fellow researchers conducted their research using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), a relatively new type of brain imaging that reveals structural connectivity inthe brain.

The investigators found that the differences between the brains of research subjects who were meditators and the brains of non-meditators in the control group weren't limited to a core region of the brain but instead involved large-scale networks of the entire brain, as well as limbic structures and the brain stem.

"Our results suggest that long-term meditators have white-matter fibers that are either more numerous, more dense or more insulated throughout the brain," Dr. Luders said in a statement to the media. "We also found that the normal age-related decline of white-matter tissue is considerably reduced in active meditation practitioners."

"It is possible that actively meditating, especially over a long period of time, can induce changes on a micro-anatomical level," Dr. Luders, herself a meditator, continued. "Meditation appears to be a powerful mental exercise with the potential to change the physical structure of the brain at large."

In other words, there now appears to be a way to take control of changes in the brain which, up to now, have been regarded as an inevitable part of aging. Meditation may keep the brain younger, more fit and make it literally larger and faster working, even as we grow older

When you are given the grace to gasp for God the way you gasped for air, you will have found him.' When the pond dries up and the fish are lying on the parched earth, to moisten them with one's breath or damp them with spittle is no substitute for flinging them back into the lake. Don't enliven people with doctrines; throw them back into Reality. For the secret of life is to be found in life itself - not in doctrines about it.

The great Buddhist saint Nagarjuna moved around naked except for a loincloth and, incongruously, a golden begging bowl gifted to him by the King, who was his disciple.

One night he was about to lie down to sleep among the ruins of an ancient monastery when he noticed a thief lurking behind one of the columns. "Here, take this," said Nagarjuna, holding the begging bowl. "That way you won't disturb me once I have fallen asleep."

The thief eagerly grabbed the bowl and made off only to return the next morning with the bowl and a request:

"When you gave away this bowl so freely last night, you made me feel very poor. Teach me how to acquire the riches that make this kind of lighthearted detachment possible."

29. The Self alone is the spontaneous self effulgent Awareness; that alone is eternal bliss; that alone is Existence everlasting; that alone is all embracing perfection, the sole God-head without a rival and the sole primordial stuff of the Universe. In the conviction born of this experience, one should ever abide, as the sole I AM, the Supreme Self. (Ch.17, v.29)

28. To hold on to the conviction born of Self-enquiry that “I am no doubt the Screen — Brahman-Self, and the world picture thereon, though evanescent, is no doubt ‘I am Self only and to abide still and blissful in that conviction is the acme of all sadhanas, like divine worship, charitable gifts, spiritual austerities, mantra-japa and samadhi as well. (Ch.16, v.41)

Anasayam, free from impressions, not only free from impressions, free from the possibility of creating impressions. Just like how a fried seed can not grow, when unclutching happens, all the karma gets fried. Anasaya, the possibility of impressions don’t exist.

All your desire is disrespecting the cosmic presence. If you stand on this base, you will be showered with wealth. You desire because you don’t feel that the cosmos is supporting you. You don’t feel that you are being showered.

I'm not teaching you fantasy. Politicians and media mafia are teaching you fantasy. Move from contentment to fulfillment. Fulfillment is totally different from contentment. If you start with the idea of not having something, you will only think of grabbing. So many things are working, Im still feeling I'm alive, millions of possibilities open. The moment you feel you are alive, millions of possibilities are opening. The door for the millions of possibilities open up when you feel you are alive

"Swamiji has come to teach spiritual practice, reduce tensions and give you peace. As you keep practicing meditation you will get a lot happiness and bliss. The kind of happiness you get in meditation does not exist anywhere on this earth. All the kinds of happiness that you experience outside are nothing compared to the happiness you get when you meditate

Meditation is to control one's mind. Through meditation one can get peace of mind. One's blood pressure comes down so your health improves. Whatever one does in life is done better. One comes to know one's own mind. Through such understanding, everyone can function and work together. The quality of one's work will become good

You are both the question and the answer. All your questions come from your identification with the body. How can any questions relating to that which was prior to the body and consciousness be answered? There are yogis who have sat in meditation for many, many years seeking answers to this question, but even they haven't understood it. And yet you are complaining.

The ego is a very powerful elephant which cannot be brought under control by any creature less powerful than a lion, which, in this instance, is none other than the Guru, whose very looks make the elephant-like ego tremble and die.

Find the best ways to quiet the mind. The instant that the mind is stilled there is meditation. This meditation has to be perennial, permanent - not just sitting for an hour a day. It does not mean chanting the thought, I have to be free. It means being centered in the Self which alone is true, all else is false

Your whole system is like a pipeline connected to one part. If that part is filled with nectar all pipe lines will receive nectar, if its filled with poison, all will be filled with poison. The main part is your central consciousness, if its awakened, all your parts will be awakened and you will be successful.

In your body you always carry an idea that your limit is only so much. Break that idea. If your mind says I can work only for 8 hrs a day, break that idea and work for 12 hrs a day. Break your mind, only then you will have gratitude to the central core of your body, the God
