My Experiences with Sudershan-Kriya

I practise Sudershan-Kriya. And everytime I get a very-very-good experience through it. "So-Hum So-Hum" the beats go on and I keep breathing in that rhythm. The purpose of my blog here is not to describe the process of Sudershan Kriya, 'cause that you need to learn at Art-Of-Living (AOL) itself under the guidance of their faculties, by doing a course at AOL. My purpose is to describe the effects.

Everytime I do it, I find enormous energy within me being dissipated and at the same time generated. My hands start beating on my laps. I start waving to-and-fro. When I do it, the experience I get is similar to what we had studied in Indian Mythology, called as 'Tandav Nrutya' of Lord Shankar - only the difference being that the Nrutya (dance) that I do is in a sitting position. In the slow pace of So-Hum beats, with my eyes closed I see the shape of a 'Panti' (lamp that we lit in Diwali). And my hands wave like a panti. These are all natural and involutary effects which keep happening and I don't have to force to make them happen. And the most interesting part is that even though my hands keep beating and waving, I never get an injury 'cause my mind goes in some other state but still it is aware of the surroundings
(i.e. it is in present tense at the same time).

And when I finish it, and keep calm in a sitting position, I feel like waving, I keep waving-waving just like a bird in skies!! And feel like these moments never end!

After that I go into Shavasan till I don't feel like getting up. And once I get up and open my eyes, I feel energy even in my eyes, what we call as 'Tej'!!

Such are my self experiences with Sudershan Kriya, you'll also get similar positive experiences; so go and learn it at AOL (Art Of Living)!!

Ganpati in MyCam!

This is just to demonstrate the 'beautiful' jobs that can be cut through MyCam. The side image shows the shape of a Ganpati that has been imported into
MyCam. The actual drawing has been done in AutoCad and converted into a universal accepted format of AutoCad called DXF. Since my software
understands DXF, it can easily import it and pass ahead to convert it into GCode and cut it.

This side editor screen shows the GCode for Ganpati as well as its drawing. Once this GCode
is read by the CNC, an actual Ganpati of metal will be cut and fall into your hands!! Isn't this WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get)??

2-D Editor Completed!

In my CAD-CAM software, I completed the editor for viewing the WC i.e. G-Code of 2-D (rather straight cut) profile. The snapshot is shown aside.

The left frame shows the G-Code and the right frame shows the drawing corresponding to that G-Code.

You can actually get a feel (simulation) of how the profile will be cut on CNC. You can play, pause and stop the tracing of the drawing as per your wish.

Zoom and Pan completed

I have completed Zoom and Pan options. Now Zoom-In,Zoom-Out,Zoom-All and Zoom-Window all are working smooth. Just like in AutoCAD!! Currently working on the CAM system... some cases of 2-D are pending, which hopefully I'll complete this week. And then move to the interesting part of taper!!

Today I completed with a major stuff of Zoom operation - Zoom-In and Zoom-Out. That is, after you draw something, you should be able to zoom-in (make larger) the drawing. This should happen as you scroll the mouse.

Not only should the drawing be zoomed, but the point around which zooming takes place is important as well. That is, while zooming, only the portion of the drawing where mouse pointer currently lies should get focus. This is exactly what happens in softwares like AutoCad. And now its happening in my software!!

Pending tasks - complete zoom-all and zoom-window.

Other Line Drawing Options

Parallel Line:

Suppose I draw a Line:

If I want to draw a line parallel to this line at a distance of 20mm to its left, how do I do it? Use: Line -> Line parallel to given line and at given offset. Select side by clicking to the left of the line. In the offset box, specify offset as 20. And you get a parallel line.

Note: Even if the distance in the screen-shot does not appear to be 20 mm, it is actually 20mm when fed to the CNC machine. The distance on the screen is not in mm and moreover, it is scaled, so you will never feel it as 20 mm.

Perpendicular Line:

Similarly, if I want to draw a perpendicular to a given line how do I do it?
Select: Line ->Line perpendicular to given line and from given point.

Select the line to which you want to draw perpendicular and the point from which you want perpendicular.

Line Tangent to two circles:

Suppose I have two circles on my screen:

If I want to draw a line tangent to both these circles, I select: Line->Line Tangent To Two Circles/Arcs.

After that I select the two circles. Then a line is

drawn in Green tangent to both the circles.

And a dialog box pops-up in the bottom-right

corner of the Drawing Screen, saying "Is it OK?"

and two buttons: Yes, No.

This means that there are more than one possible lines which are tangent to two circles.

If I click No, then another possible line is

drawn in Green which is tangent to both the

circles. Again the dialog box is shown asking for

whether this is the Line you wanted or show

you the next possible line.

Now if I click Yes, this line is made final and now

the Dialog Box disappears. The circles become

Green again. This indicates end of the operation.

I have just drawn all the possible lines (4 lines in all) which are tangent to the two circles:

The Line Menu

Lets get started with the menus. Lets consider Draw menu first.

In Draw, there are 3 main options. Line, Circle and Arc drawing.

In Line there are 12 sub-menus. That means there are 12 ways in which you can draw a line. Which to select, depends on your requirement.

Lets look at Line Using Two Points option. In this, first you click on any point on the screen. And then a line is drawn from that point to the point where your mouse is hovering. Its a Magenta line. It gives you a feel of how your line will look after you select the second point.

After you click second point, the final line is drawn in Green color. You can also see through which points the line was drawn in the botton White text area. There you see the
Point selected: x,y text which tells the point which you selected on screen.

We can also draw line by directly entering its co-ordinates in the White text-box in the bottom.
For example, to draw line from (0,0) to (100,100) we enter the points as shown in the following image and the line is drawn.

Back with MyCam!!

Hello Friends!! I am back again after a long~ gap! Why didn't I blog in the meantime? Simple.. 'cause I couldn't blog... there was nothing to blog! So, there was silence!

But now, I am back... with full energy. This time I have a lot to show and talk. In fact there's lot to show. What will I show? Only that which is created can be shown. So, here I am... to show you my creation. Its My Cam!! I mean MyCam!!

Whats this MyCam? Nothing!! Simply call it as yet another PaintBrush program! But there is lot more beyong PaintBrush that my program has to do. What's that? You'll come to know.

MyCam is nothing but a CAD+CAM software developed by me. CAD means Computer Aided Design and CAM means Computer Aided Manufacturing. In the CAD part, you draw things. And in the CAM part, you produce what you have drawn using a machine.

Basically whatever you draw in my software can be given as an input to CNC machine which will cut the material as per the drawing and give you what you wanted: your job.

Let me explain my software starting with the CAD part. The CAD part of MyCam consists of operations like Drawing, Modifying, Transforming, Editing, Connecting of profiles. Profile means whatever drawing you draw on the screen of MyCam.

The side screen-shot shows the basic screen that is shown as soon as you open MyCam. There are menus like File, Edit, View, Draw, Modify, Transform, Connect, etc.
