The educated Kshatriya of the Axial Ages
So which of these two dominating castes lead and drove the adaption and development of yoga and karma? The answer seems to be that even if some of the scribal class of Brahmins wrote the texts, then many of the new controversial ideas emerging were introduced by the increasingly dominant Kshatriyas (Chatterji 2007, Obeyesekere 2002). As neither of the two social hegemonic groups of descending Brahmins and ascending Kshatriyas could rule society on their own, they were forced reluctantly to deal with each other socially, politically and ideologically. So this would have been a factor in explaining why heretic discourses like yoga found their way into the writings of some Brahmin clans: it was forced upon them by necessity, by the quest to stay in power, by their dominant political partner caste. Based on this I assume that the strata who voluntarily and out of interest – the first amateurs (lovers of) – took up new practices and ideas and later called them yoga, were mainly the Kshatriyas.
It is preferable to take a 1,000 mg/ One-Legged King Pigeon Yoga Pose II day blend of DHA and EPA. Fatty acids in breast milk come from two sources: One-Legged King Pigeon Yoga Pose II the mother’s diet and the mother’s adipose tissue. Fish oil supplements increase the concentration of DHA and EPA in maternal adipose tissue and breast milk both directly and indirectly. Low levels of omega-3FAs have been found in patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease Conquer, Tierney, Zecevic, Bettger, & Fisher, 2000. In an eight-year prospective study of 1,200 elderly subjects, those with low serum DHA had a 67% greater chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease than those with high DHA Kyle & Arterburn, 1998. DHA supplementation improved neurological symptoms in Alzheimer’s patients Nidecker, 1997; Soderberg, Edlund, Kristensson, & Dallner, 1991. In a double-blind randomized placebo-controlled DBRPC study of 174 very mildly impaired Alzheimer’s disease patients, 600 mg EPA slowed cognitive decline over a six-month period Freund-Levi et al. More studies are needed to confirm the neuroprotective effects of antioxidants and omega-3FAs in patients with neurodegenerative processes Youdim, Martin, & Joseph, 2000.
