Continuing from the discussion, it seems that ramdev baba bhakts and agnostics have found a new enemy “Chi” energy instead of God himself and are reading internet websites rigorously to come up with juvenile counter comments which only show their ignorance.
This is a follow up post from the discussion from below threads:
Firstly aamir fans should not question Chi because PK is neither atheist nor an agnostic. He is a believer. In the TV show scene, saurabh shukla asks him “agar tum humse bhagwan cheen rahe ho to hume kya de rahe ho,” and talks how worshipping God , wearing threads etc gives them hope in life. aamir agrees with him that believing in God gives hope and also agrees that God created us . he has a problem with the rituals (ways by which ppl pray to God) and multiple religions. fair enuff, then what is the right thing to do?
On the other hand, OMG clearly stated its perspective. Paresh says “bhagwan dhoodna hai to insaan mein milega, patharo mein kabhi nahi milega”. Askhay as krishna says “mujhe kahan dhoodn rahe ho kanji, maine kahan tha na main har jagah hun, upar chidiyon ke saath ghosla bana raha hun, neeche chitiyon ke saath lunch bhi kar raha hun”.This is the true essence of God. God is everywhere, in every living being and he cant be materialised and confined.
People pray to God to achieve mental peace and to destress them in times of crisis.Believing in God gives them hope to live another day as rightly said in PK. A hindu goes to mandir and does pooja. A muslim goes to masjid and offers namaz and christian goes to church and so on. What ppl achieve doing this is mental peace, hope and relief from stress. PK critises this. OMG also did.thats fine. Then what should be done if not praying? In OMG, paresh talks about an incident where he gives milk (meant to be given as chadhawa) to a poor beggar outside temple who blesses him and paresh says he achieved mental peace.
Now here is some background about Chi/Qi:
In ancient times most of the population of China consisted of peasants. The people would work in the fields all day until sunset, and then return to their homes to rest.Out in the moonlight, the weary peasants could wind down and relax. And it was then that they became aware of something moving around inside their bodies -something that felt a little like steam. This steam could move up or down, and in different places such as the legs or arms; it also seemed to be related to their breathing and to the mind. The people noted all these various feelings and eventually discovered that each person had a centre, just below the navel, which made the rest of the body warm and strong. They called this centre ‘Dantien’.
With continued observation they found that the flow of the steam could make the body warm and was related to the spirit -spirit in the sense of a feeling of wellbeing rather than in the religious sense of the word. Gradually they discovered a network of channels crossing the body, linking the internal organs. Distributed along these channels were certain points which affected the way the steam flowed through the body. Thus energy (Qi) and the system of acupuncture points and channels were discovered, and people found that touching and massaging the points could heal a variety of problems.
Movement and breathing of various kinds to create heat were thus perceived as ways of healing physical ailments from very early times, long before the formulation of medicines. The movements and breathing patterns of animals were also regarded as valuable examples to follow. In his book Chunway Chu, written around 600 BC and dealing with the subject of breathing,Zhuang Zi said: ‘Breathing techniques can improve metabolism; moving like a bear and a bird willresult in longevity.’During the Three Kingdoms Period (from 280-220 BC), a famous Chinese doctor, Hwa Tou, created’Five Animal Play’. He understood how wild animals lived and how they moved to maintain their bodies’ balance and he saw how people, living under the system of society, had lost this natural ability. ‘Five Animal Play’ was designed to help people relearn this skill in order to cure illness and strengthen the body. Hwa Tou explained that when you raised your arms above your head, as if they were the horns of a deer, it stimulated the Qi circulation of the liver; when you stretched your arms out like a bird spreading its wings, it was good for the heart and relieving tension; rubbing and slapping yourself and moving like a monkey was good for the spleen; stretching your arms out in front of you while exhaling, like a tiger, was good for releasing the tension in the lungs; and bending forwards like the bear was good for the back and the kidneys. Hwa T ou used the names of animals because it made the exercises easier to remember and by using wild animals, instead of domestic ones, he made the exercises sound exhilarating. All these movements help the Qi flow aJong the channels, strengthening the body and promoting vitality. They also balance the circulation and stimulate the internal organs. The famous seventh-century BC philosopher Lao Zi advised people to relax their hearts (meaning their chests) and to firm their stomachs, by which he meant that they should concentrate their minds on the centre (Dantien, as mentioned above).
