Forgive Yourself If You Want To Live Longer, Scientists Say

Scientists and doctors have long said there is a very close link between a person’s ability to deal with stress and their long-term health.

When and if this happens, we will no longer need soldiers and armies.

Scientists Identify Rare Brain Disorder Linked to Kirtan Chanting

Symptoms of a new condition brought on by kirtan chanting – coined “bhav brain” – include markedly decreased attachment to one’s self-identity, blurring of the demarcation between “self” and others, disillusionment with materialistic gain, and reduced anxiety about what the future may bring.
