4 Ps of Peace

The 4 Ps of Marketing has done well. It has given success at the expense of peace. Try the following 4 Ps of Peace to get back to your original self.


The 4 Ps of Marketing

The 4 Ps of Marketing are:

  1. Product

  2. Price

  3. Place

  4. Promotion

The 4 Ps of marketing has done quite well for the marketing people. If you are the marketing person this formula will help you get success and if you are the customer then be ready to buy something.

First the marketing people remove the husk from wheat. They then sell you the wheat and charge you for the extra work they did. They give it a new brand name for the same wheat that others are selling. They will use words like refined, double refined, organic, natural etc for the same what that nature gives us. Consuming this wheat you soon develop constipation. After doing several tests and probably a CT Scan your doctor will find out that you need dietary fiber and asks you to buy the husk that is now sold in separate packets under various brand names. He might suggest a particular brand.

The salesmen chase targets and higher incentives to somehow buy a car. Because nobody wants to walk. A good career will allow to you to stop walking…..

You walk between your customer and office to earn money enough that can let you buy a car. The idea is to stop walking.

Then when you reach 40s you feel that you are not healthy as before forgetting that health declines naturally. So you see your doctor. He warns you about your bad health. He says that you should actually walk for 45 minutes everyday. So you will have to go back to walking which is what you did first. Those selling Treadmills will come to know of your doctor’s advise. We do not know how! Sooner or later they will sell you a high quality Treadmill which may require you to go in for a bank loan.

You keep your car in the garage and then start to walk to get back your health. Sometime back you lost your health trying to buy a car.

The 4 Ps of Marketing tries to bring you back to the original state. The original state is that human beings are supposed to walk everyday.

The 4 Ps of Marketing will ensure that they sell you a treadmill to restore your health.

4 Ps of Peace

Science and all the marketing, the industrial and medical revolution has done a great deal of improvements in the modern world. Somehow and ironically when it should have given us more happiness it seems today that it has actually made us more tense and unhappy.

The 4 Ps of Peace will counteract the 4 Ps of Marketing and try to bring you back to your original state of happiness.

Find the peace that is always yours by using the 4 Ps of peace. It is simple. No marketing. No gimmicks. Just do it and see the difference.

For the modern world, I recommend the 4 Ps of Peace as:

  1. Pranayama (first be calm)

  2. Prayer ( then reach out to God)

  3. Providence (get Protection from God)

  4. Patience (the real blessing)

1. Pranayama

Whenever you are angry you are likely to lose more than when you remain calm. When you are angry your logic fails. About 15 bad hormones are released into your bloodstream each time you get angry. That is why they say do not make big decisions when you are angry and do not offer money when you are very happy (or drunk).

So when you are angry you need to calm down first. Whether you are angry or not, the right breathing can bring down your anger and calm your mind than any drug or sedative or sleeping pills can boast of. Deep breathing is not all that perfect. Do not do it rapidly. There is a perfect pace for breathing. Pranayama is the safest way to breathe if you want to decrease your stress levels.

Pranayama is inexpensive. To do it you require not 1 acre of land but just a chair or a place to sit. Silence around you in a must if you want better results. However I found that even with noise around I can relax by doing Pranayama.

If there is one practice that originated in India and is now all over the world but less used in India, then it is surely Pranayama. Today more people in the rest of the world use it. The reason is that if it yours you do not give so much importance to it. We get so used to it that it means nothing to us.

Before taking a life turning decision ensure that you do Pranayama whenever possible so that your mind is calm and serene. Decisions made during such times are a lot better than those made when you were angry.

When we are angry, we use the wrong words based on our vocabulary. Filthy words come out of our mouths. When we are calm we use sweet and good words. Anger is so damaging. So calm yourself down to get all the good words on your tongue and paper if you are going to take a major decision.

When I attended a meditation session many years ago, I remember that someone from behind asked the teacher, “What should we do to meditate”? The teacher replied, “You don’t have to do anything”. I was so impressed with that line that it remained in my memory till this day. How nice! Don’t have to do anything. Doing, doing has got us all tense. Everybody from Kindergarten till today told me to do, do and do. This was the first time somebody told me that something can be done without doing. So meditation is all about “Not doing anything”.

Pranayama is the fourth ‘limb’ of the eight limbs of Ashtanga Yoga mentioned in verse 2.29 in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.Pranayama means the extension of the breath. Breath is the proof of life in your. So the right kind of breathing can revitalize you in minutes. Try it and see the difference. Many ailments are caused due to stress.

Always do Pranayama first and then do your meditation. If you attempt meditation without Pranayama chances are that you will not be successful in it. You may miss the trance that is expected to be a part of your meditation.

2. Prayer

If you ask you will get not only in this world but also in the world beyond. The rule is the same. The reason is God has given you everything and He expects you to ask when you are in need of something. Based on your Karma you have to ask as many times as required.

Since my marks were low when I came out of School, I remember that I had to ask my college Principal several times before he finally gave me the seat (in 1980 without paying any extra money for it). He ensured I came back day after day. I did not lose patience.

So depending on your Karma you will get results even when praying. So that does not mean you should stop praying saying that everything is based on Karma.

Asking is your job. God will decide what is best suited for you.

Sometimes we ask for those things that are not good for us in which case God will not give it to us because He knows.

Prayer is not a sign of weakness. It makes you stronger than ever before.

Prayer is not a sign of weakness. It makes you stronger.

3. Providence

This is the help from God. Providence means – The protective care of God or of nature as a spiritual power. Providence follows prayers sooner or later.

Those who have a strong and un-afflicted Jupiter in the 1st house has the greatest chance for help from God. Jupiter in the 5th house or the 9th house is the equivalent of Juptier in the 1st house.

If Jupiter is afflicted strongly by RAHU, then the person tends to speak against God.

An afflicted 9th house is always seen in the horoscopes of those who speak against their own religion. A client who belongs to Islam came to me for a horoscope reading. I noticed his 9th house afflicted. Soon I found out that he was speaking against his father and Islam. I corrected him. I told him, “God knows where to put you in according to your Karma”. He confessed that for years he has been troubling his father which I know happens when one has an afflicted 9th house.

Even if your horoscope is not indicating that much Providence you can improve upon it by reaching out to God in the holy spots of earth. Try and try and then you will succeed. This rule works in all spheres of life.

Watch out for signs that indicate that you are protected by God all the time. Do not brush if off. Do not take it for granted. Everyday of your life there is the presenec of God. However special blessings arrive based on your prayers.

Each time you see a miracle speak about it to others. That way you will remember it. Be grateful to all those who helped you in times of trouble.

4. Patience

The gift of patience is the greatest gift from God.

Patience means wait. If you wait you will get. If you are not ready to wait, you become angry, then you make things worse. You lose your faith. Then everything becomes a vicious cycle.

This is a please wait symbol. You can also consider it as the hand that blesses. If you observe most of the images of God has the right hand kept in this way. So this is the hand that bless. It is the same as “Please Wait Patiently”.

Understand your Dasha and Bhukti (the planetary period) to know when events are likely to happen. There is no point being impatient.

Somebody is the world champion in a particular game now. Accept it as his or her time. Then when your time comes you will become. Until then keep practicing.

So the Bhavagad Gita stresses that “Do you duty…. do not worry about the results”. This does not mean that you will not get the result. The result comes at appropriate times.

If you understand when the right dasha and bhukti (planetary period) starts then you will develop patience. Here people wait for their bus. Buses keep coming. People know that they have to wait. When it comes to life, they forget this and lose patience.

Real yogis and saints of India have exhibited extraordinary states of patience. They are quite and calm. They carry a lot of smile on their face revealing that they know everything. With knowledge of times, comes patience.

    Hi! Nice article ! I have Jupiter+Ketu in my 9th house, so is it good or bad ? Shani (12th house) mahadasha, and mercury (8th house along with sun) dasha.
    So, is it pro or against the thoughts oriented towards God, spirituality and father?

  2. sindhu

    ‘ 4 ps of peace’ is well written and is the need of the hour.the 4 ps of marketing is humorous to read but it also reveals how we humans make our life complicated running at the back of material world.patience is one virtue ,we lack in this fast pacing world.we expect immediate results and if not we curse god.
    for most of us god,prayer and pranayama is something to be done during old age.reading your article we know that it applies to all age groups and practising the 4 Ps of peace will help us to lead a better happy life.
    thank you sir for this wonderful enlightening article.

    Hello! do you see anything ‘Royal’ in the horoscope of Kate Middlrton and Charle’s baby born on 22 July 2013 at 17.: 24?
    Do all babies born during this time in England will be more or less ‘royal’ as expected for Charles’ baby ?

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      Are you currently in France? Luzarches? What do you do and what is your age?

  4. abhi

    Yes true; in France, 37 years unemployed πŸ™‚
    I am not alone without work; we are in thousands πŸ™‚

  5. abhi

    A correction in my previous comment ‘Kate Middlrton and Charle’s baby born on 22 July 2013 at 16: 24 London time’ and not ’17: 24′

    I see 6 out of 9 planets in 6/8/12th house

    Lagnesh mars in 8th house along with mercury and Jupiter
    Rahu saturn in 12th house
    Ketu in 6th house

    What is extraordinary in his horoscope ?
    Of course, i am not an astrologer; just a curious person (thirst for knowledge-kumbh rasi). So, i expect that i am missing something very crucial in my observation.

      I requested for your experiences with Astrologers. I need to know what was already told to you. I need to know the yogas that you mentioned and other details. Once I get that email from you we will start.

  11. Paul.T.P

    Dear Dhilip sir,
    As per my horoscope I have raja yoga and kesari yoga.one of astrologers told me jupiter is in 8th house and venus is in 12th house, you never get nothing.other guy told me you will become a famous engineer in Govt;sector or a large scale business person.another guy told you will be a famous doctor or cine actor or a philosopher.one of them told venus in 12th house,it is a good thing.it is powerful.Really I am nothing.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      You went to guys or Astrologers? Your reply shows that you may have gone to ordinary people. Are they professional Astrologers or simply guys? Does Jupiter in the 8th house give Gajakesari yoga? Please find from them which book says so? If you ask them you may find out. I have not seen any book that says Jupiter in the 8th house gives Gajakesari Yoga?

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      I will write an article on Gaja Kesari. When it is ready I will let you know. Thank you for raising this doubt about Gaja Kesari yoga.

  12. Paul.T.P

    Dear Dhilip sir,
    I don’t know that astrologers are professional or not but they are bearing the degrees, doctor,jyothish ratnam,bhooshanam,jyothish chakravarthy like that.sorry for the term used as guys.I am sure I have neecha bhanga raja yoga and gaja kesari yoga in my horoscope.my sukra(venus) dasa started,2003 onwards and ends 2023.I never said jupiter in the 8th house give kesari yoga or raja yoga,i just said about my horoscope.i am not an astrologer or never ever studied astrology.

  13. r

    hello there…..i would like ask about something…it may be off topic….i want to ask something regarding the chakras in our body…..i have always had a tingling sensation on top of my head in the middle, i have heard certain things about it, still im not sure….can u tell what it means? is it a bad or a good thing? And also so sometimes, i have tingling sensation on forehead if im praying to certain deity with eyes closed. Does this mean anything?

    By the way i like your article, just started reading your blog. Thank you.

    • E K Dhilip Kumar

      It means you have ESP and also a higher state of awareness or spirituality. In your past life you knew a lot of spirituality and it is trying to activate. If you reopen the file, you will get back to it. Depends on your age and what you are currently doing.
