Food choice is an action with consequence, so you could say that eating is karmic.  karma is basically ‘you reap what you sow’, so think about this: Is what you eat free from the involvement of creating pain, suffering and death by eating another creature?  By eating meat, fish, poultry, eggs etc you are reaping suffering caused by your choice.  Even if you didn’t kill it yourself, the flesh carries forward the energy of pain, fear and death into the food.  The energies in the flesh may be affecting your energy field.

If you do kill and prepare the flesh yourself, is it done with consciousness around it?  Like native Indians giving thanks to the animal for giving up it’s life force for their benefit.

Think about the food you eat.  Consider the cook who prepares your food?  Is that person happy or are they angry and despise their job?  Are they an addict?  Or are they giving off good vibes of love and positivity while cooking?

You are what you eat.

karma is what governs life.  Mantra is what corrects it.

‘a priori’

I love this term!  Is this a philosophical explanation of karma?  Does your past decide your future?  Is your future nothing but your past?

A little excerpt taken from Wikipedia.

Eighteenth-century German philosopher Immanuel Kant  states, “although all our knowledge begins with experience, it does not follow that it arises from experience”. According to Kant, a priori knowledge is transcendental, or based on the form of all possible experience, while a posteriori knowledge is empirical, based on the content of experience.

Kant states, “… it is quite possible that our empirical knowledge is a compound of that which we receive through impressions, and that which the faculty of cognition supplies from itself (sensuous impressions giving merely the occasion).”

Thus, unlike the empiricists, Kant thinks that a priori knowledge is independent of the content of experience; moreover, unlike the rationalists, Kant thinks that a priori knowledge, in its pure form, that is without the admixture of any empirical content, is knowledge limited to the deduction of the conditions of possible experience.

Interesting how Immanuel Kant is in the karma busting mantra!  Watch this youtube video and learn the basic similarities to Kantian philosophy and the philosophy of karma.

“Do you not see how necessary a world of pains and troubles is to school an intelligence and make it a soul?”

I started reading the book by Dan Brown The Lost Symbols.

The author uses a  quote used from Noetic science writer Lynne McTaggart:

“Living Consciousness somehow is the influence that turns the possibility of something into something real.

The most essential ingredient in creating our universe is the consciousness that observes it.”

Intention is a learned skill.  Harnessing the true power of thought requires practice!

That is like practicing the sounds for karma busting Thiru Neela Kantam. The more one practices, and repeats, the more power will be generated to BUST the karma.  It takes repetition/practice/ and lots of intention toward the desired outcome.

Lynne McTaggart Speaks


The literal meaning of karma is action
. Action in this case needs to be defined not as an impulse at the physical level, but an impulse at a subtle or psychological level. Hence, thinking is action. Everything that you think creates vibrations and leaves impressions. The Buddha said that one’s whole life consists of one’s thoughts. This is the best definition of karma I have ever found. You caused the life that you are now living. You may think that the reality that you have created is very ugly, but at the moment you created it you thought that this was the best that could be accomplished. That’s why you created it. When did you create it? You created it in a number of previous births. The desire to create this reality was so intense that you ended up creating it. Nobody was responsible but you. Why did you do this? You did not know any better at the time you created it.

Once a psychological reality becomes a material reality, it is very difficult to undo it. I am not saying it is impossible, only very difficult. At the thought level, the reality is like water, but at the material level, it has become like ice, very solid and very real. It takes time to diffuse it. The reality that has become material is called prarabdha in Sanskrit.

Thiru Neela Kantam (tee roo neeeee la cannnn tummmm)
This sound phrase or mantra comes from the Sanskrit meaning ‘blue throat’. What the heck? What does this have to do with karma you say?
I’d like to share a really cool story about “The Churning of the Milky Ocean” in Hindu mythology that uses archetypes to relay to us many esoteric themes. In this case I’ll stick to the theme or aspect of karma.

Cool Story: Samudra Manthan aka The Churning of the Milky Ocean
Indra, the king of heaven was cursed by a great sage one day, when the sage offered a garland to bless him with fortune came across a sage who offered him a special garland. Indra’s elephant was irritated by its smell, grabbed the garland and stomped it into the ground. This enraged the sage by this seemingly disrespectful act and cursed him and all the other gods in heaven by taking away all of their strength, energy, and fortune.

Before that, the gods had a bit more power to overcome the demons but after this many battles were fought to gain control over the universe. They each wanted to make the rule permanent so sought out the nectar of immortality that was located at the bottom of the milky ocean. The gods were advised to be very diplomatic with the demons if they wanted an opportunity to have the nectar, so they formed an alliance with demons to jointly churn the ocean and then share it among them. The demons went for it.

They decided that the best way to retrieve the nectar was to churn it up from the bottom. They used a mountain for the churning tool and a snake for the churning rope. The gods held the tail of the snake, while the demons held its head, and they pulled on it alternately causing the mountain to rotate, which in turn churned the ocean. The mountain soon sank and the snake, feeling queasy from all of the twisting and squeezing, vomited up its poison.

The poison was toxic enough to destroy all of creation. Shiva was called upon to save the day and out of His compassion, He drank the poison before it could corrupt the world. It was so strong that it changed the color of Shiva’s neck to blue. For this reason, he is also called Neelakantha (the blue-necked one, nila = “blue”, kantha = “throat”).


How does this apply to your life?  To your karma?  Stay tuned and I’ll attempt to decipher the meaning of the myth.

According to Dr. Baskaran Pillai, founder of P.I.P. or the Phonemic Intelligence Program, “the real way to dramatically change your life is through sound.  Consciousness itself is sound.  So if you change sounds within the system, you can make lasting changes in your life.  All that you need to do is to change the sounds of your consciousness at a very deep level.  Spoken wounds are only a very gross form of sounds.  Spoken sounds emerge from unmanifest levels.

Sounds, fundamentally, are the building blocks of the whole Universe.  Sounds build your body; sounds build your mind; sounds build everything that you see around you.”

From the Album Dancing with Siva by Dattatriya Siva Baba
Thiru Neela Kantam Chant

You can diffuse your karma, or “bust” our karma by using the karma-busting mantra Thiru Neela Kantam (pronounced Tee Ru- Nee-La Kan-Tam).  This mantra is used to diffuse the subte psychic vibrations of karma that reside in the throat. Every day when you rise in the morning, chant the mantra silently or out loud for three minutes.  Do this every day and you will begin the process of changing your life for the better. By using the sound Thiru Neela Kantam, either in meditation or listening to the sounds in the chant, you will be creating a very powerful environment within your own consciousness.
