36. Prana Vayu – Life Breath, the vital force.

Vayu, the vital breath is regarded as the element of air at a material level. In Vedas it is mentioned that Vayu includes the concept of space or Akasha. Space in motion is air, while air at rest it is ether. These are the two sides of Vayu, which is the unity of air and ether. Ether is the field in which Vayu as a force operates. Vayu is the power through which everything comes into manifestation and into which everything eventually returns. 

Vayu is not just the material element of air and space but the cosmic principle of energy and space that pervades body, mind, and consciousness. The entire manifest universe arises from space and energy which is Vayu at an outer level. At an inner level, Vayu stands for the formless principle of air and space, the invisible Brahman behind the visible world of the earth, water, and fire elements, the realm of name and form. Pranamaya Kosha consists of five types of Vayu namely Prana, Apana, Vyana, Udana and Samana. These are the vital principles of basic energy and subtle faculties of an individual that sustain physiological processes.

Prana vayu draws the universal life-force into the body for distribution, and finally, its expiration. The subtle or gross materials that enter the body are a result of Prana vayu. All sensory perceptions and respiration are due to Prana vayu. It operates the autonomic nervous system of the cervical region, governs the verbal mechanism of the vocal cords, the movements of the gullet and the respiratory tract.

Apana vayu is responsible for the elimination of waste products through the lungs and the excretory system. By controlling the lumbar portion of the autonomic nervous system of the body, it governs the excretory system and its related vital organs such as the kidneys, bladder, genitals, colon, and rectum.

Vyana vayu is present throughout the body and holds all of the parts together. Its work is extension, contraction, and flexion of the muscles, tendons, and ligaments; the stored-up energy of the muscles. This vayu maintains blood circulation in the physical body, and gives the body shape, flexibility, and sensitivity. Since it is all-pervasive it is usually referred to as “Trivikrama.”

Udana vayu is responsible for expression through speech. It is the upward moving energy. It is the natural intuitive force, which separates the astral body from the physical and help in maintaining erect position of the body.

Samana Vayu is located in the navel region it governs the internal balance of the prana and apana vayu. Samana vayu controls the process of digestion and assimilation by directing the secretions of the digestive system, and regulates the organs of digestion; the stomach, liver, pancreas and intestines. Just as oxygen is the supporter of combustion in the material world Samana vayu is to the Jataragni, the digestive fire. Samana vayu influences metabolism and metabolic disorders. Since it is concentrated in a small region and yet has its effect to all parts of our body this vayu is referred to as “Vamana.”

In addition to the five vital forces, the Natha tradition explains the beneficial function and importance of five sub-vital forces called upa-pranas.

The upa-pranas are Naga, Krikara, Kurma, Devadatta and Dhananjaya.

Naga vayu functions are belching and rising of Consciousness.

Sneezing, hunger and thirst are the Krikara vayu functions.

Kurma vayu works the automatic movement of the eyelids while winking, arms and legs while in movement, etc. just like how a pneumatic cylinder works in mechanical world.

Yawning is the result of the Devadatta vayu.

Dhananjaya vayu responsible for opening and closing of heart valves and is concerned with coma, swooning, trance and does not leave until after death. Once this vayu exits the body starts to decompose.  

35. Lighting the lamp of Knowledge.

The Sanskrit word Upanishad consists of three words—“Upa" means "near,” "ni" means "down" and "shad" means "be seated.” "Upanishad" means, "to sit down near the Guru to receive knowledge." The Guru is the personification of wisdom and the Shishya represents a spiritual seeker eager to come closer to wisdom. The Upanishads are knowledge in the form of dialogues between the Guru and Shishya from ages ago which denotes the Parampara (Lineage). This Guru-Shishya Parampara gives the picture of the finite getting close to the infinite as well as the known reaching out to the unknown.

Knowledge has to flow from one to another just like a river, if not it gets vanished or will be stagnant and of no use. Knowledge dispels ignorance. Ignorance and darkness has not got any permanent place. There is no person whom we could say is and will always remain ignorant and there is no place in the whole of universe which we can call a dark place. One spark of knowledge and beam of light respectively can change them. Hence knowledge is likened to a lamp (Deepam). If we want to light a lamp, we need a container, we have to fill it with oil and place a wick in it. We need a flame source to light the wick. Only when we have all four accessories we can light the lamp. This lamp dispels the external darkness. Similarly, to dispel the darkness of ignorance, we need to have vairagya (renunciation), the container; unconditional love, the oil; one pointed concentration, the wick; and Jnana (spiritual wisdom), the flame source.

It is customary to light a lamp ahead of an auspicious event and once it so happened in such event, an ultra modern person who was seated in the gathering asked the distinguished guest lighting the lamp, “Gentleman, why are you using the same old out dated way of stating the function by lighting a lamp using oil, wick, and flame? Why not change according to the time? Why not "ON" a LED light or a CFL Lamp by just operating a switch? Will it not dispel darkness as your lamp does????”

The distinguished guest replied, “Son, you are right the time as changed a lot and every thing has advanced by using science and technology, but the way in which knowledge is transferred from an individual to another has remained the same, just like the flame is brought near the wick of the lamp that has to be lit. Is it possible for a LED or CFL lamp which is glowing to light up another LED or CFL which not lit when brought near it????”

34. Let's be Wise, not just Intelligent ………!!!!!!

Intelligence is a theory that reveals how smart a person is as compared to the next. A person may be intelligent, but at times may display little or even no common sense. For example, an intellectual can give us a thesis on how dangerous it is to step onto a road with little sense for oncoming vehicles, but may do that exact thing by being preoccupied not conscious while talking on his mobile. Wisdom, on the other hand, is life-experience that can be equated to having common sense to not only to share with others but also to use it. A wise man is not a person who has gained profound knowledge while living in a cave but he can be a common person with a lifetime of experiences to share. A wise man would never step in front of oncoming traffic. He would have understood the concept of looming danger consciously and unconsciously. He will never be arrogant and does not have the "it will never happen to me" attitude in life; because he is aware that life is fragile.

Intelligence is mere ability to accumulate facts from outside world and understand concepts at an elevated level. Wisdom is obtained from personal experience. It has got a deeper understanding that events may have a far reaching consequence and helps visualizes the maturity of our judgment. An intellectual is satisfied with what he knows and is proud of his intelligence while a wise man is humble and feels what he knows is less and is eager to learn more. Intelligence is knowing how to create something, Wisdom is knowing when to use or when not to use it.

Knowing others is INTELLIGENCE; knowing our self is WISDOM.

32. Jivan Mukti --------- Liberation Here and Now!!!!!

Jivanmukta is the one who is liberated while he is still alive. He is liberated from material consciousness which results in dissolving of the inbred mind or false ego to recover his Pure Consciousness. For a Jivanmukta the soul remains in the body without being conscious of it. He disowns the body and mind. Once disowned the body and mind run for a little while and dies just like a fan that is switched off, rotate for some more time and then stops. That is Videhamukti.

An ordinary human is continuously stirred up by illusions (Maya) while witnessing day-to-day life. But a Jivanmukta observes the play of the life through the prism of the Pure Consciousness without any desires, emotional attachment, impatience, prejudices, and agitations of the mind. According to the teachings of the world scriptures there is need to awaken this Pure Consciousness within. This Pure Consciousness which is our true nature can be awakened by fully roasting the seed of Ignorance in the fire of Knowledge. So that the seed does not sprout again. Thus in true sense becoming Jivanmukta is simply getting rid of false Ego and to live a liberated life.

The need to become Jivanmukta has been illustrated by all realized souls and the scriptures. They say Liberation or Mukti is not an after death phenomena. It must be achieved here and now while being still alive! Becoming Jivanmukta also means closing of the bodily Nine Gates (two eyes, two nostrils, two ears, mouth, anus and the genital opening), and opening of the Tenth Gate (Divine Consciousness). While the Nine Gates are open it is near to impossible to enter the Spiritual Consciousness. In other words, the process of becoming Jivanmukta needs separation of the Consciousness from the Material Bondage. It is a total union with one's true nature from which the Jiva (individual) never returns again.

The state of Jivanmukta does not mean committing suicide, abandoning one's duties, remaining inactive, running away from the world, or neglecting one's responsibilities of life. On the contrary, the life of a Jivanmukta is full of actions that are spiritually centered, actions that are sinless, without any selfish motives, actions that do not create new seeds of Karma, and actions that use his bodily powers to serve Lord and his creation. Hence to be Jivanmukta simply means detaching from the mundane consciousness.

Upanishads tells about the quality of Jivanmukta in the following ways:

One, who is awake all the time no matter it is day or night, even though his body takes rest, he remains awake consciously.

One, who is free from affinities and of whom mind is unattached from material objects – whether he performs activities or not.

One, who has not slight conception of being an actor (ego) doing the things.

One, of whom, no one is afraid and he is not afraid from anyone.

While participating in the worldly affairs, he remains in the real identity (soul) and acts like that everything belongs to others.

One, who has equanimity of mind every time and everywhere.

One, who understand and see everything in totality without making distinction in ‘I’, ’he’, ‘you’, and ‘others’.

31. Democracy or Monarchy which is better????

Monarchy is a form of government in which supreme power is held by an individual, who is the head of state; normally he is called as King. His son becomes the king of the state after his death or he can put his father in jail and declare himself King. Normally what a King thinks is right will be the correct justice. In monarchy if King is good everything is fine, if King is ruthless everything is worst. Most important point is that in monarchy people can never throw the King from his throne. Generation after generation one family rules the kingdom. In other sense people have limited freedom, if King likes gambling then gambling becomes legal, if he does not like then gambling is banned. Also in monarchy religious leaders, gurus enjoy best life and status, and people have to follow their views, if not there is a death penalty that will be served.

After all these negativity in monarchy we were introduced to Democracy. This democracy is still being amended it has not reach a culminating point where one can say it is perfect. The biggest drawback with the democracy is that it is very slow and negligent form of government, this is reason for people to say without batting an eyelid that they prefer monarchy and those days under Kings was good. Democracy means where a state ruler is chosen by people by way of voting system. There are different types of democracies. But finally people choose the state rulers whatever form of democracy they have. Democracy is the best form of government but it is in an immature toddler stage, it needs intellectual mature growth.

Democracy unlike monarchy lets everyone to express free and fair. This freedom of express has been misused by a few. Today if we see we find it is not democracy but it is just a number game. With the support of some fringe group one can become a leader and get elected. In our country only 40 - 50% know importance of voting. Once we have 100% voting, we will have the best democracy in the world. More the people get educated more progress can be seen. A real democracy is the one when every individual is protected by state for keeping his views and acting against what he feels is not good to his society. Democracy is not the law for the majority or the protection of the minority it a promise to view all in equanimity. Yet we have several parties appeasing communities and a particular section of the society. This is where our democracy is fully defeated. Here we have got nepotism and caste politics. 

But as Mark Twain says "Politicians and Diapers need to be changed often and for the same reason."

Hail Democracy !!!

30. What we Desire and What we Deserve!!!!

In Katha Upanishad Lord Yama tells little Nachiketa that Preya (Pleasure) and Shreya (Pleasant) approaches a person at every step in life as split roads and he consciously or unconsciously chooses either Preya or Shreya. Shreyas is acquiring possessions by Dharmic means for personal enjoyment as well as for the prosperity of people around him. This is good and preferable. Preyas is acquiring possessions by any means for worldly enjoyment which is materialistic and the person alone is benefited. Preya is that which pleases us and kindles our Ego. Shreya, on the other hand, is neither pleasing nor displeasing - it is simply beneficial to all and is what we deserve as per our Prarabdha karma.

Preya gives immediate pleasure, enjoyment, and satisfaction and usually provides what it promises. But the problem is that it does not and will not last long. Hence Preya lives only for the day or for the moment. Shreya, on the other hand may sometimes be horrid at the beginning but will be of great help at the end, for example, a fitness program is unlikable at the beginning but after days one starts feeling the benefit of it.

Preya is charmingly dressed and the moment our eye catch sight of it, it is hard to take eyes off it. But Shreya wears a modest personality. Even if it is standing right in front of us we fail to notice it. Preya has an excellent salesman spirit and knows what to offer and to whom. It makes the appeal directly to our senses or our Ego. Preya provides passing pleasure but Shreya gives us perennial joy.

Is there a way to get out of the hold of Preya and move towards Shreya?????

Ramakrishna Paramahansa put it in sublimely simple words. If you want to go East, don’t go West. If you want to lose weight, don’t eat calorific food. If you want to be fit, don’t give up exercise. If you want to get enlightened, stop chasing materialistic wantons.

All that we have to do to accept Shreya is not to fall prey to Preya. Decline to chase money, fame or power at the cost of values or principles. Refuse to indulge the sense gratification. Then soon Preya will pass away into an ethereal shade, and Shreya comes strong and beaming. With Shreya on our side, the battle of life is ultimately won, for it teaches us to put the long term over the short term, the right over the tempting, and the principles over pleasure. Sweetest and most sought from; success to happiness to enlightenment is obtained by staying faithful to Shreya.

29. Consciousness and Conscience - Two birds on same branch

Consciousness is “ATMA” and always understood as awareness alone. In fact, it is the blend of awareness, knowledge, and will power. While lower level of consciousness is associated with mundane world the higher level of consciousness transcends all the physical realms.

Consciousness prevails in all the three states of awareness: the wake state, dream state and dreamless sleep state. We are aware of the consciousness in the first two states but the consciousness that is prevailing at the time of dreamless sleep is self evident, it is aware of not the world around but is aware of the sleep. Hence we claim to have slept well. This consciousness that is self aware and which does not need any other external medium to reveal its identity is called Chit. As we say we had a very good sleep we also mention that we are unaware of what happened in the sleep, this is because of lack of knowledge (Ajnana) if one becomes aware of the deep sleep state he has achieved results in meditation. Meditation is becoming aware of the unaware.

Conscience is “ANTARATMA” and all of us have. It is "the witness within" and is referred to Lord residing within the hearts of all beings. It means when we do something against the wish of our intellect like hurting someone's feelings, cheating, lying, stealing, etc., we know in our Antaratma that it is wrong and sometimes if one is lucky enough the conscience will get the better of them and they will listen to their Antaratma and know what is right. Conscience divides the good from the evil of life. He who has harmony in thought, speech and action, who fears sin and Adharma, who is pious, God-fearing and steadfast, who is balanced and capable of maintaining equilibrium, will have his conscience in an untarnished state.

In the Vishishtadvaita Philosophy of Srimad Ramanuja one of the five aspects of the Supreme is “ANTARYAMI” which is the Lord residing inside us as witness to the things that we do being propelled by the Trigunas and our Prarabdha karma. The Katha Upanishad likens the Atma and the Antaratma to two birds sitting on the same branch (i.e. the heart). Of the two, one eats the fruit and the other is just a witness without eating. In fact this was the reason for the Dvaitha Philosophy of Sriman Madhva to have unfolded. It is the object of meditation for many mystic yogis. Those who believe in this avoid doing wrong and if done will confess to it so that the Antaratma is not found in guilty. “There is no pillow as soft as a clear conscience” says a French proverb.

27. Be Spiritual and also Religious!

We regard spirituality as a vital part of religious experience and equate it with religion, but declining association of religions and the growth of secularism in the western world has given rise to a newer view of spirituality. The terms spirituality and religion both refer to the search for the Absolute. An increasing number of people see the two as separate entities and believe that religion is just one way by which one can experience spirituality. But religion is not identical with spirituality; rather religion is the form of spirituality that happens in civilization. Spirituality is personal realm of thought and experience while the word religious is connected with the public realm of religious institution with official dogmas.

Having said that could it be right to be a spiritualist only! No, it is necessary to be religious since it is the base to spirituality. If spirituality is the branches of the tree, being religious is like the root of that tree. For the growth of the tree the roots are very important. The tree will never survive with its roots damaged. Also the roots of the tree are not visible to the outside world and so also the religious practice of a person is personal and it need not be public. There are many people who practice different religion. And no religion is exempted from positive or negative views. Spirituality teaches tolerance to other religion and the attitude to look in for the best things that are preached in it.

However we are hell bound to find the flaws in other religion in order to uphold our own, is it the way to search for the truth????

Spirituality is the desire that drive a person behind what he believes. If a person has a belief in something greater whether it is a search for Truth, enlightenment or something unnamable, and acts upon that belief in some way like prayer, meditation, acts of kindness, living a life for others, pursuit of higher knowledge etc... Then that person could be seen as spiritual. Many people label themselves spiritual when they have the belief in something greater related to their own religion or dogma. This has made religion a direct opposition to spirituality. Spirituality is a term that includes religion but that also encompasses the human urge to reach out towards the Absolute of which we all are a part.

25. Philanthropy versus Investment

Philanthropism is a private initiative taken up for public interest. It had been a long tradition which was ancestrally flow down to show affection for humanity. A Philanthropist would volunteer activities with devotion of work to a social cause for the benefit of his fellow beings directly or indirectly as well as making the world a far better place.

Philanthropy is a practice of a usually rich society or very profitable companies where they donate revenue to or promote various programs to assist economically under privilege society. It is just not only giving the material things in everyday life but also spend time which is a treasure. There are a good number of ways that philanthropists donate their time by canvassing for charities and making men and women more mindful of what is occurring worldwide. Numerous ventures out in addition to donate their time by offering hot meals, clothing helping children get good education and medical facilities. A few who've expert understanding provide their time by way of helping students who can't afford school fee and school supplies. It was a spirit of good will toward others and their welfare.

In early times, philanthropy was usually prompted by religious faith and helped to assure a reward in an afterlife and the individual would get involved in act of generosity out of desire of those rewards. Today philanthropy has been diminished and the spontaneity of giving is eliminated. We have also brought about a more rational assessment of ability to give as well as the introduced most selfish financial investment methods for future needs. The focus has also shifted from the relief of immediate need to long-term planning to prevent financial mishap in future. With this thought almost every venture is looked as investment and people have forgot what philanthropy is. It would have been better if atleast medicine and education were not included in the list of investment and was nurtured by philanthropists. There should be no parity difference in those sectors.  

In Islam, according to Fataawa al-lajnah al-Daa'imah, commercial insurance of any type is a illegal, as it involves ambiguity, gambling, and unlawful means of wealth hording.

The thought of investments have made an individual so self centered that he thinks of himself and his own family future. The concern of society has no place in his must-do list. There is nothing wrong in thinking of the future of the family but in doing so we have completely forgot that there is an important role that our society expects from us. The individual investment has taken over social responsibility. The result of which the economically under privilege society are unable to get the diagnosing of a disease and getting treatment of which is “the unreachable stars.”

24. PRIDE ------------------- a veil to the Soul.

Pride is a sturdy sense of ego associated to some affection that causes one to feel proud and get unrealistic satisfaction. One may be proud of Indian cricket team when they win and take pride in supporting the team. Pride is an outburst of feeling good of a work done which may have benefited the person without regard to the result being helpful to others or not. Pride makes one believe that he is not just good but the best and that he will do his utmost to become better than the best without caring those around him.

Pride is the bottom of all wrongdoings. It causes us to turn away from God instead of turning to Him. All disobedience has pride as its root. All rebellion has pride behind it. The pride that stems from oneself is sin, and Lord hates it because it is a hindrance to seeking Him. ………… Psalm 10:4.

Beauty, Intelligence and Talent are the most natural attributes to pride, but amazingly in recent time’s people who lack those are also prey to pride. One should understand that beauty is not everlasting. The pride of a peacock is the glory of the God. If one has achieved something great by intelligence and talent it can be redone again in future by any other person as it is a mere human venture.

The one and only one who can feel pride is the GOD the Creator, since he is Sarvashaktha “OMNIPOTENT” and he is Sarvatantra Swatantra “INDEPENDENT”. As mere mortals do we have morality to be pride of things that we achieve????

Even in producing a small product in a factory there is involvement of firstly the supplier of raw materials then loaders and then the transporter then the work force in the factory to achieve the target on time. Isn’t it ridiculous if one takes pride of it when all one does is managing the events and it is a team work at the end which makes it possible???? We humans are never independent as we are always interdependent hence we are not eligible to feel pride.

Pride brings disgrace, while modesty fetches wisdom. Pride restricts one from taking failure in stride, the loss of pride takes him to the extreme of committing or threating to commit suicide.

“Naham Karta Hari Karta Tat Puja Karma cha Akhilam” ----"I am not the doer, Shri Hari is the doer, all the actions that I do are His worship”.

22. Are we parenting our children better?????

In recent times there is decline of morality amongst our children and it has reached a state of bother. There may be many social factors that have contributed to this state of affairs but one of the main causes is lack of parenting skills amongst the young parents. Parenting skills is a labour of love but it also requires wisdom and discipline. Nowadays, housework, home cooking, a mother's personal attention to her children are no longer valued and have been superseded by eminent career in the corporate world. Agreed that there is a need for both parents to work and focus on their careers and personal achievements, but in doing so they find it difficult to be good parents because they presume that they don’t have time to guide their children. Morality is not that thing wherein a parent has to spare time and teach them, the way the parents conduct themselves in front of the child is enough for the kid to learn. What is the use if a parent who has told a good story on truth and its benefits at bedtime and asks the child in the morning to answer the mobile and tell the one on the line that is he not present in the house?

Spirituality also has to be introduced to child but not of higher degree like Nirguna Upasana (Jnana), they should be thought of Saguna Upasana (Bhakti) in initial stages. Let us suppose a child has stomach ache it is important to drop a pill that relieves pain into its throat. It is of no use if we read out the name of the pill and the chemical composition of the pill to the child. If we bring up the child in a proper way, yes after some years the child will want to know about the pill and may be its chemical combination also. The child has to be thought about potential energy and kinetic energy before talking about rocket science isn’t it???

We are not molding our children to be good human beings we are preparing them to become money minting machines and would love them to learn software go to U.S, do medicine shift to U.K, become a civil or mechanical engineer get a job in U.A.E. If we think deeply are we not trading our childrens talent to other countries? We incept them with our unfulfilled career ambitions without taking into account what the child is interested in. We have this misconceptions that science and mathematics are the and only subject that will give a career to the child and all the other subjects like History, Geography, Language, Civic, Moral Science are only to score marks and swell the aggregate. History has become taboo to many of us, we don’t want it as we feel it is of no use in future, but those are the subjects which mold the personality of the child.

The parenting skills has to improve and the education system has to change to see our country have a better future with the generation next………… what say???

21. MIND is branded by our BEHAVIOUR.

In our daily life we encounter people with different behaviours some are emotional some practical and some are sensitive. Are these behaviour in us by birth or has it been developed with the events that has happened in the family the circumstances, environment. The answer is No; none of them will influence the behaviour of a person. The spontaneous variations in behaviour may be the result of circumstances but the inbuilt behavioural attitudes are to be analysed and if need be corrected.

A person’s mind is always branded by the way he behaves, we call some emotional or practical or sentimental or sensitive and so on. In fact this behaviour we posses are not permanent though it can be observed that in some circumstances we tend to go according to our behaviour. In the first place as a person looking at another person I have to learn to understand the other person beyond his behavioural attitudes, the beauty of a lotus is felt only if we look beyond the filthy lake isn’t it????

Also as a person we do not set our mind to some particular emotions all the time, because at that time our intellectual part works, for example, however emotional I may be towards God if I receive a banana as “Prasad” I peel off the skin and eat, here the intellect guides me to discard the skin and eat the fruit even though I consider the whole banana is oblation. Likewise we can see a practical person becomes emotional at hospital or at a funeral. And a sensitive person having a good pestering marketing career.

So it all depends on the intellect to correct our behaviour and if we can only listen to it we can lead a better life. Choosing to live a new and different way is a test because it means setting off in a new direction on a road that is unknown - we will not have experienced it ever before, and it takes nerve to start out on that journey. And we find our true nature when we learn to truly nurture our behaviour.

20. Family in Love …………….

Family love is word that is very hard to express. It is very rare to find a person who can put words to describe the depth of love one has towards the members of the family. But everyone will surely realize the void it creates if someone has departed from the family or one who has drawn stakes from the family and gone away. The mothers’ love and fathers’ efforts are the two things that haunt one who has been separated from them.

Unfriendly behavior among family members may crop up due to anger and fury which should not be taken as an indicator of lost love among the family members. These kinds of bitter memories have to be erased and one should learn to move on in the interest of a happy life. Real love has got strength to overcome all difficulties that appear in a family, it helps us to share our sorrows and happiness. It brings out openness and there will be no hidden secrets among husband and wife. Sharing of views and expressing of their intent is also important. In many families wife and husband try to keep their counterpart happy by accepting their way of life even though they are not comfortable with it, this is not the way of showing love. This leads only to a disaster once the fact surfaces.

Is it important to be expressive in showing out our Love????

There is no harm in expressing love but some are expressive and some are not. If someone is not expressive it does not mean there is no love towards the partner. One who has real love will find love as real love is silent and within which all the other love finds speech. There is a love quote which says “If you can’t understand my silence, how can you understand my words.” Love felt from heart is better than one felt from ears and eyes. What say?
