Nazar Naa Lagein Teri – Part2


Some of my friends who read the earlier post completely ( I should thank them for that) have expressed doubts about the energy stuff.   Below is what I felt and experienced. Hope I will make some sense.

What do we do when are in standing outside on a cold winter night.  We try to cover our body as much as possible or hold the hands crossed and close to the body, bring the legs together. We  want to keep  ourselves warm and not lose any heat (a form of energy) .
If its summer, We try to keep the body cool and wear as minimum clothes possible. We stretch ourselves  under the fan to release the extra heat in our bodies . Also our bodies sweat to keep them cool.

Now when we touch a piece of ice, we feel cold  and remove the hand. What happens is the ice takes the heat from our body,   the heat is lost from our body locally and we have a numbing sensation.  The heat gets transmitted from our body to the piece of ice. Can I now say that our bodies are capable of releasing heat (energy)?
Similarly when we touch a object, the heat is transmitted from the object to our body. So our body can receive heat  ( energy).  The thermal scanning  of a foot ball player will show that he is releasing the heat inside his  body in the form of radiation.

Let me ask a simple question – What do we do when India wins a match?  We are elated, excited and beat our fists in the air “Yes” Yes” . What happens in our bodies when we are happy. May be some chemical reaction which creates a sudden blast inside. This is when we tend to expand our body. We jump, lift our hands skywards. What happens is we are trying to expand or increase our surface area so that this energy ( heat, a chemical reaction or some explosion, I am not sure of the exact form ) is dissipated.
Same thing happens when we hear a joke.  We laugh. We open our mouth and make sounds ( will not go  into detail of how we laugh) . That is the bodies reaction to some funny events or jokes. It expands to dissipate the sudden reaction inside.  Same  thing happens when we want to cool our bodies.

If we are sad, grieving we create a negative energy inside us.  We  try to come closer, as if trying to save the heat inside our body.  There is a popular saying that sadness decreases with sharing.
What happens is  when when someone consoles a grieving person, he gives some of his energy  so that the sadness is allayed  a bit. And if someone tries to keep his grief to himself  there are chances of derangement. That’s why it is said that it is good to cry so that some of that negative energy is decreased.

I want to quote here that when you are happy, your sensory body expands beyond your physical body. You can feel things near you but not actually touching you. When you are sad your sensory body shrinks. you cannot feel someone even if they are touching you.

When we are sad, crestfallen, defeated by life and look at the happy, successful people, some of us feel jealous and  envy them.  Let’s call them “X” people. Now that these “X” people are not happy and doing nothing,  they look for short cuts. ” Look at those happy people! cha!” . We want a pie of their happiness. They try to take some happiness   from the happy people but nothing happens to the happy people, they wont lose anything but  some negative  energy is passed on to their bodies  and a  temporary imbalance of energy is created inside, which will not cause  any serious damage but  may get a fever. This we call Dishti or Nazar. We try to replenish this energy from the external sources  like burning a cloth, a broom stick ( broom stick has tiny little charges at their ends) or salt as discussed in the previous post. This will  not decrease  performance.

As far as Dishti  or Nazar is concerned. You don’t lose energy, if someone just looks at you. And during public meetings or performances, the people look up to the performances or speeches. People encourage them by clapping, a positive energy is transmitted that rejuvenates the people on stage to do more.

In case of children, they are always happy, no negative thoughts. when we look at them, we all want to be happy like them, no tensions, pressures. There may be some people among us who might be jealous and looking for short cuts. They want those happiness at free of cost. This effect is very less on the grownups.  They transmit negative energy to the children. Children,  as they are small and   growing will be affected more.  that’s why you will often find Dishti being removed for children.  This will only cause a mild fever or they may catch cold.

And regarding  Anger , when we get angry we are diverting some of our vital energies to it and we make our selves vulnerable to external manipulation. We actually want to look powerful by being angry at others, but we only belittle ourselves.

Happiness as energy? I Don’t know its exact form or name. we think Happiness is something not physical but emotional. But it is sometimes  the result of some physical action. You hit a goal in a foot ball match, a physical action, and you become happy. There may be some chemical reaction inside you when you are happy.

Whatever I have written above is to try to understand one of  the old practices we follow, but not to discourage people to go out and venture into the world.

Comments please…

  1. Where is part 1??

    Mama, you got it wrong…I mean you did not get what I said, of course, we do transmit “energy”, though I doubt “transmit” is the right word. We all know, energy=work. Any physical action we do results in an energy differential. the energy can be thermal too.

    My question is when people LOOK at you, (your dishti theory) in what way are you losing energy? And if you lose energy somehow, what about people who are always in the public life? like artists, politicians, speakers etc? Do they always lose energy?

    What is “happiness” energy??

  2. Goutham,

    Thanks for your comments

    The Part 1 is what you have read earlier.

    I have written about the energy transmission stuff to correlate to what happens when we are happy or sad.
    When you very happy ( you won a match for instance) , you jump, lift your hands, say yes. This is an effort to increase the area of exposure to the environment. I correlated this to what we do when we need to cool our bodies. The opposite happens when we are sad. I want to quote here that when you are happy, your sensory body expands beyond your physical body. You can feel your near you but not actually touching you. When you are sad your sensory body shrinks. you cannot feel someone even if they are touching you.

    As far as Dishti is concerned. You don’t lose energy, if someone looks at you. During public meetings or performances, the people look up to the performances or speeches. People encourage them by clapping, that rejuvenates the people on stage to do more.
    And as far as functions are concerned, they situation is different. suppose there is a reception , and a couple is standing there happy.
    Many of us are happy for them. Seeing them, some one thinks, I should also work hard , get a job, and marry a nice beautiful girl. Some are different, they are jealous, they want that happiness at no cost. those people may have the Dishti effect. This effect is very less on the grownups. but for children, they are always happy and they are growing. that’s why you will often find Dishti being removed for children.

    Happiness as energy? I Don’t know its exact form or name. we think Happiness is something not physical but emotional. But it is the result of some physical action. You hit a goal in a foot ball match, a physical action, and you become happy. There may be some chemical reaction inside you when you are happy.

    This is what I can say. I have nothing to prove it you. the rest is up to you.

  3. Well, Karteek I should say the post is profound. One of the best from you yet. Wow! Past few years, I too came to believe that most of the rituals that we Indians follow have had sound technical reasoning.

    Coming to Dishti and the Goutham-Karteek argument above: it need not be energy loss when ppl are looking at you, it could be ‘negative energy’ transmitted to you, and that energy causing the imbalance in you. When ppl appreciate or encourage, they essentially give you a ‘positive energy’ that makes you feel better than you would without it. Hope I make some sense.

    However, Karteek, thanks a ton for the post.

    • This is the perfect way of putting it, “Negative energy transmitted to you”. I will edit the post.
      Thanks, for your valuable comments.
