The Spiritual Science Research Foundation has been conducting spiritual research to ascertain how a person?s life is impacted both at the level of the individual and at the level of society. Spiritual research (conducted through advanced sixth sense) takes a holistic approach where in all 3 dimensions (i.e.
It is the law of nature that whatever has been created is sustained and eventually destroyed.
The low phase of a cycle can be worsened if the human race adds to the raja-tama in the world. Out of the 70%, if considered as 100%, nature affects the human race to the extent of 10%. This happens when there is excessive cutting of trees, oil leakages, emissions from factories etc. If one digs deeper into the psychological nature of humankind one will find that it is heavily influenced by our spiritual maturity or spiritual level. Just as dirt and smoke make up pollution at a physical level, raja-tama is pollution at a subtle intangible level. An increase in the raja-tama subtle basic component means an increase in the subtle intangible spiritual pollution of the world.
As soon as there is a tilting of balance in favour of raja-tama, the excess raja-tama exerts its influence through the medium of the five Absolute Cosmic elements.
Please note that by spiritual practice we mean spiritual practice that conforms to the six basic principles of spiritual practice. In 2009, the efforts made at Copenhagen by world leaders will only help in combating the problem at a physical level. If we do not change our ways at a mental and spiritual level (along with the physical measures such as reducing carbon emissions), it is inevitable that we will experience unprecedented natural disasters and catastrophic war over the next decade. Hence it is imperative that we understand the basic root cause of these disasters and take appropriate steps (at a physical, mental and spiritual level) to eradicate this spiritual pollution of raja-tama in the world.
The catalyst behind most of the dark events we see in the news in current times is primarily the activity of higher level ghosts. In our article on Armageddon, we have provided the strong likelihood of catastrophic events of higher intensity happening unless humankind changes its ways and adopts a more saattvik lifestyle and adopts spiritual practice as per the Universal six basic principles of spiritual practice. These catastrophic events will come in the form of both unprecedented natural disasters and wars. Another interesting fact that we found through spiritual research is that the cause behind most biological disasters such as the deadly viruses on Earth such as AIDs, Ebola and Bird-flu is because of higher order ghosts. The planet?s recent climate changes and natural disasters that have alarmed us all are just the beginning of a spiritual cleansing period to rid the world of raja-tama. Cause and effect applies to us all, consider therefore your thoughts, words and actions carefully. Juis omdat ons kennis oor hulle te min is, kon ons nie onderskei tussen hulle en ons eie gees nie. Ek het uitgevind so in my eie stryd dat ons almal eintlik maar net Pione op 'n skaakbord is, in 'n geveg wat ons nie eers 'n benul van het nie. Daarom se ek weer als wat hier op die aarde in die skepping aangaan is geestelik alhoewel die vleeslik lyk!
Nog 'n punt wat ek dan ook wil uitwys, wie is werklik ons vyande die vleeslike wat voor jou staan of die gees wat hom of haar beheer? This paper discusses an approach for creating a good disaster recovery plan for a business enterprise. The process of preparing a disaster recovery plan begins by identifying these causes and effects, analyzing their likelihood and severity, and ranking them in terms of their business priority.
When a disaster strikes, the normal operations of the enterprise are suspended and replaced with operations spelled out in the disaster recovery plan.
The disaster recovery plan does not stop at defining the resources or processes that need to be in place to recover from a disaster.
The second section of this paper explains the methods and procedures involved in the disaster recovery planning process. The first step in planning recovery from unexpected disasters is to identify the threats or risks that can bring about disasters by doing risk analysis covering threats to business continuity. These essential functions should be prioritized based on their relative importance to business operations. While evaluating the risks, it is also useful to consider the attributes of a risk (Figure 2). The scope of a risk is determined by the possible damage, in terms of downtime or cost of lost opportunities. The magnitude of a risk may be different considering the affected component, its location, and the time of occurrence. When evaluating risks, it is recommended to categorize them into different classes to accurately prioritize them. Human caused: These disasters include acts of terrorism, sabotage, virus attacks, operations mistakes, crimes, and so on. Supplier: These risks are tied to the capacity of suppliers to maintain their level of services in a disaster. Electricity: To analyze the power outage risk, it is important to study the frequency of power outage and the duration of each outage. Water: There are certain disaster scenarios where water outages must be considered very seriously, for instance the impact of a water cutoff on computer cooling systems. Climate Control: Losing the air conditioning or heating system may produce different risks that change with the seasons. Fire: Many factors affect the risk of fire, for instance the facility's location, its materials, neighboring businesses and structures, and its distance from fire stations.
Structural: Structural risks may be related to design flaws, defective material, or poor-quality construction or repairs. Physical Security: Security risks have gained attention in recent years, and nowadays security is a mandatory 24-hour measure to protect each and every asset of the company from both outsiders and employees. Data systems risks are those related to the use of shared infrastructure, such as networks, file servers, and software applications that could impact multiple departments. An effective departmental risk assessment needs to consider all the critical functions within that department, key operating equipment, and vital records whose absence or loss will compromise operations. Desk-level risks are all the risks that can happen that would limit or stop the day-to-day personal work of an individual employee. Once the evaluation of the major risk categories is completed, it is time to score and sort all of them, category by category, in terms of their likelihood and impact.
Looking at the above example, multiplying the likelihood time, impact time, and restoration time yields a rough risk analysis score.
Once the disaster risks have been assessed and the decision has been made to cover the most critical risks, the next step is to determine and list the likely effects of each of the disasters. Simple "one cause multiple effects" diagrams (Figure 3) can be used as tools for specifying the effects of each of the disasters. Note that multiple causes can produce the same effects, and in some cases the effects themselves may be the causes of some other effects.
The intention of this exercise is to produce a list of entities affected by failure due to disasters, which need to be addressed by the disaster recovery plan. It may be noticed that two or more disasters may affect the same entities, and it can be determined which entities are affected most often. Once the list of entities that possibly fail due to various types of disasters is prepared, the next step is to determine what is the downtime tolerance limit for each of the entities. The cost of downtime is the main key to calculate the investment needed in a disaster recovery plan.
Tangible costs are those costs that are a consequence of a business interruption, generating loss of revenue and productivity. Intangible costs include lost opportunities when customers would approach competitors, loss of reputation, and similar factors. How the disaster affected entities depend upon each other is crucial information for preparing the recovery sequence in the disaster recovery plan.
Once the list of affected entities is prepared and each entity's business criticality and failure tendency is assessed, it is time to analyze various recovery methods available for each entity and determine the best suitable recovery method for each. In the case of data systems, for example, the recovery mechanism usually involves having the critical data systems replicated somewhere else in the network and putting them online with the latest backed up data available. In the case of power, options such as multiple power suppliers or having alternate sources of power such as diesel generators may be suitable.
Considering multiple options and variations of disaster recovery mechanisms available, it is necessary to carefully evaluate the best suitable recovery mechanism for an affected entity in a particular organization. The roles, responsibilities, and reporting hierarchy of different committee members should be clearly defined both during normal operations and in the case of a disaster emergency. Note that not all the members of the Disaster Recovery Committee may actively participate in the actual disaster recovery.
Quick and precise detection of a disaster event and having an appropriate communication plan are the key for reducing the effects of the incoming emergency; in some cases it may give enough time to allow system personnel to implement actions gracefully, thus reducing the impact of the disaster.
The notification procedure defines the primary measures taken as soon as a disruption or emergency has been detected or definitely predicted. India has a coastline running 7600 km long; as a result is repeatedly threatened by cyclones. On an average, this region experiences an earthquake with magnitude greater than 5.0 every year.


India’s long coastline of 7,516 kilometer is exposed to nearly 10 per cent of the world’s tropical cyclones. Of these, the majority has their initial genesis over the Bay of Bengal and strike the east coast of India.
On an average, five to six tropical cyclones form every year, of which two or three could be severe. More cyclones occur in the Bay of Bengal than in the Arabian Sea and the ratio is approximately 4:1.
Avalanche: Avalanches are river like speedy flow of snow or ice descending from the mountain tops. Weather EventsLike drought, an increase in severe weather events has been recorded in the last 100 years by the National Climatic Data Center. Black smoke rises from reactor number three at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in March 21, 2011. Last year's nuclear accident at Fukushima was a man-made catastrophe and not only due to the tsunami that hit the plant, a Japanese parliamentary panel said Thursday in its final report on the disaster.
The probe is the third of its kind in Japan since the world's worst nuclear crisis in a generation.

An earlier report by plant operator Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) had all but cleared the huge utility, saying the size of the earthquake and tsunami was beyond all expectations and could not reasonably have been foreseen. But an independent group of scholars and journalists, who reported their findings in February, said TEPCO could and should have done more. It also said that had the company had its way, its staff would have been evacuated from the crippled plant and the catastrophe could have spiralled even further out of control. The findings published on Thursday call for further investigation into the impact of the 9.0 magnitude earthquake -- as opposed to the towering tsunami -- on the reactors at Fukushima. Although many scientists and activists have questioned the dominant narrative that cooling systems were knocked out by the rising waters, the government and TEPCO have been unwilling to say the reactors were damaged by the initial earthquake. Tectonically-volatile Japan has a network of nuclear reactors that, until Fukushima, had supplied around a third of the nation's electricity.

The nuclear industry has long boasted of its many safeguards against earthquakes, but much recent public opposition to atomic power has focused on the vulnerability of plants, especially those that sit near seismic faults. The administration of then premier Naoto Kan hampered operations as the disaster unfolded, the report said, and did not use a logical chain of command. Japan's nuclear watchdog was remiss because it did not force TEPCO to act, even when it knew things were going wrong, the report said. Japan's prime minister said on Saturday the decommissioning of the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant would take decades, in the first government announcement of a long-term timeframe for the clean-up.
Japan said Friday it will continue exporting atomic power plants, despite uncertainty over its own use of them as it continues to grapple with a crisis at the tsunami-hit Fukushima nuclear plant. No individual can be held responsible for the nuclear meltdowns at Fukushima, Japan's prime minister said Saturday, insisting everyone had to "share the pain".

We have found that all problems in life can have their root cause in one of three dimensions which are physical, psychological and spiritual. This is the law of Creation, Sustenance and Dissolution and it contributes to 30% of the reason for natural disasters.
The human race also facilitates this cyclical destruction process by its behaviour which sometimes culminates in war and devastation. At a physical level, it influences the clothes we wear, the food we eat and the type of shelters we live in. As discussed earlier a general lack of spiritual practice and unrighteousness increase the overall raja-tama of humankind and hence the environment. Just as we try to clean dirt out of the spaces that we use from time to time at a physical level, nature responds to the need for cleansing and correcting the subtle intangible pollution of raja-tamain the environment. By acting through the five Absolute Cosmic elements, it manifests in the increase of natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, eruption of volcanoes, cyclones etc. If the Absolute Water element is influenced, it can either give rise to an excess of water (such as floods or excessive snowing, giving rise to an ice age) or a lack of water (e.g. However, the increase in raja-tama has a far-reaching adverse impact on the body, mind and intellect of each and every human.
The physical or gross devastation perpetrated by the volcano is instantly visible, but the effect of the radiation that has far-reaching consequences is not immediately understood. This way we would be truly working for the everlasting and all encompassing benefit of humankind. We have explained this in detail in our articles on ?The battle of good versus evil? and ?Armageddon?. Ghosts of a higher order take advantage of the raja-tama in the human race and possess people.
The destruction that will follow will be a cleansing of the planet of people who are more raja-tama in their basic nature. After 2025, when the battle between good and evil comes to an end within this cycle, there will be no introduction of new deadly viruses. In this process of intense destruction over the next 10-15 years, Humanity?s spiritual consciousness will also rise and will become closer to God.
The best strategy is to have some kind of disaster recovery plan in place, to return to normal after the disaster has struck. The guidelines are generic in nature, hence they can be applied to any business subsystem within the enterprise.
Though both concepts are related to business continuity, high availability is about providing undisrupted continuity of operations whereas disaster recovery involves some amount of downtime, typically measured in days. The causes can be natural or human or mechanical in origin, ranging from events such as a tiny hardware or software component's malfunctioning to universally recognized events such as earthquakes, fire, and flood. The ultimate results are a formal assessment of risk, a disaster recovery plan that includes all available recovery mechanisms, and a formalized Disaster Recovery Committee that has responsibility for rehearsing, carrying out, and improving the disaster recovery plan. Figure 1 depicts the cycle of stages that lead through a disaster back to a state of normalcy. Only when these are assessed and the affected systems are identified can a recovery process begin.
The plan should also define how to restore operations to a normal state once the disaster's effects are mitigated. An effective disaster recovery plan plays its role in all stages of the operations as depicted above, and it is continuously improved by disaster recovery mock drills and feedback capture processes.
Risk analysis (sometimes called business impact analysis) involves evaluating existing physical and environmental security and control systems, and assessing their adequacy with respect to the potential threats. In evaluating a risk, it is essential to keep in mind the options around that risk, such as time of the day or day of the week, that can affect its scope. The effects of a disaster that strikes the entire enterprise are different from the effects of a disaster affecting a specific area, office, or utility within the company.
They are very significant in that they are not directly under the control of the organization that faces the damages. Typical civil risks include labor disputes ending in strikes, communal riots, local political instability, and so on.
While evaluating these risks, the following essential utilities and commodities need to be considered. It is also useful to determine how many powers feeds operate within the facility and if necessary make the power system redundant.
A key factor in evaluating risks associated with telephone systems is to study the telephone architecture and determine if any additional infrastructure is required to mitigate the risk of losing the entire telecommunication service during a disaster. Different secure access and authorization procedures, manual as well as automated ones, are enforced in enterprises.
A key objective in analyzing these risks is to identify all single points of failure within the data systems architecture. Operations that have run for a long period of time on obsolete hardware or software are a major risk given the lack of spares or support.
These would be events such as a fire within an area where flammable liquids are stored, or a missing door key preventing a specific operation. The likelihood that something happens should be considered in a long plan period, such as 5 years. A higher value would mean longer restoration time hence the priority of having a Disaster Recovery mechanism for this risk is higher. In Figure 3, the entities that fail due to the earthquake disaster are office facility, power system, operations staff, data systems, and telephone system.
The entities with the most appearances in the table have a greater tendency of failure occurrence. This information becomes crucial for preparing the recovery sequence in the disaster recovery plan.


For example, having the data systems restored has a dependency on the restoration of power. For less critical data systems, there may be an option to have spare server hardware, and if required these servers could be configured with the required application. This committee should have representation from all the different company agencies with a role in the disaster recovery process, typically management, finance, IT (multiple technology leads), electrical department, security department, human resources, vendor management, and so on. During a disaster, this committee ensures that there is proper coordination between different agencies and that the recovery processes are executed successfully and in proper sequence. But several key members of the committee, such as the operations manager, operations coordinator, and the respective operations team leads, will always actively participate. Execution Phase: In this phase, the actual procedures to recover each of the disaster affected entities are executed.
Reconstitution Phase: In this phase the original system is restored and execution phase procedures are stopped. A hurricane affecting a specific geographic area, or a virus spread expected on a certain date are examples of disasters with advance notice.
It should be well informed about the geographical, political, social, and environmental events that may pose threats to the company's business operations. At the end of this phase, recovery staff will be ready to execute contingency actions to restore system functions on a temporary basis. A notification policy must describe procedures to be followed when specific personnel cannot be contacted.
The call tree should document primary and alternate contact methods and should include procedures to be followed if an individual cannot be contacted. The North-Eastern part of the country continues to experience moderate to strong earthquakes. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), barring fire, floods are the most common natural disaster affecting Americans. While notification systems are in place, vulnerabilities still exist for property damage and crop loss. The nuclear accident at Fukushima last year was a "man-made disaster" and not only due to the tsunami, a Japanese parliamentary panel said Thursday in its final report on the catastrophe.
Tens of thousands of people were evacuated from an area around the Fukukshima plant to avoid radiation contamination.
These dimensions (which are the root causes of problems in life) are not mutually exclusive. This knowledge has been provided so as to give us a better understanding of the options available to us in overcoming the phenomenon of climate change that currently has centre stage in the midst of a host of International issues. For example, the Himalayan mountain ranges have been created, they will be sustained and eventually they will be destroyed.
When there is a higher predominance of sattva in the environment, cyclical changes are gentle.
As the human race gets more selfish and cares less about the planet and their fellow people, they indiscriminately abuse the resources of the Earth. This impact, being subtle and intangible, is not easily recognised and humankind becomes aware of it only when this impact manifests as very gross climatic changes. They capitalise on people?s personality defects such as hatred for others and make them perform the most terrible acts on their fellow citizens.
The viruses that have been created however will remain on Earth and cures will need to be found for them.
For an enterprise, a disaster means abrupt disruption of all or part of its business operations, which may directly result in revenue loss. Effects of disasters range from small interruptions to total business shutdown for days or months, even fatal damage to the business.
The disaster recovery system cannot replace the normal working system forever, but only supports it for a short period of time. Finally, ongoing procedures for testing and improving the effectiveness of the disaster recovery system are part of a good disaster recovery plan. And the fourth section explains what information the disaster recovery plan should contain and how to maintain the disaster recovery plan. Essential functions are those whose interruption would considerably disrupt the operations of the business and may result in financial loss. For example, spilling several gallons of toxic liquid across an assembly line area during working hours is a different situation than the same spill at night or during the weekend. To mitigate the risk of disruption of business operations, a recovery solution should involve disaster recovery facilities in a location away from the affected area. Factors such as workplace violence, bomb threats, trespassing, sabotage, and intellectual property loss are also considered during the security risk analysis. Recovery from this type of failure may be lengthy and expensive due to the need to replace or update software and equipment and retrain personnel.
Every process and tool that makes up the personal job must be examined carefully and accounted as essential.
Sorting the table in descending order will put the biggest risks to the top, and these are the risks that deserve more attention. The entities with less downtime tolerance limit should be assigned higher priorities for recovery. Depending on the data system, there may be options of autorecovery or manual recovery, and the cost and recovery time factors of each mechanism vary.
It should have trusted information sources in the different agencies to forestall false alarms or overreactions to hoaxes. Procedures should contain the process to alert recovery personnel during business and nonbusiness hours. Many have still not been allowed home, with some areas expected to be uninhabitable for decades.
Modern sciences, due to the limitations of their research tools, are mostly limited to finding the root cause of a problem at a physical level. The following diagram shows the two perspectives that explain natural disasters and climate change from this holistic perspective. Thus, whenever something is created in this world, after a period of being sustained, it can be expected that at some point it will be destroyed. As the eras progressed there was a reduction in the sattva component; thus resulting in cyclical changes with higher amplitudes. An example of this would be the effect of waxing and waning of the moon on the psyche of people. Along with this, immoral behaviour and tensions in society lead to a rise in the raja-tama subtle basic components.
The rest of the effect of the human race on nature, which occurs at the mental and spiritual level, has not been recognised and therefore will not be addressed. To minimize disaster losses, it is very important to have a good disaster recovery plan for every business subsystem and operation within an enterprise.
At the earliest possible time, the disaster recovery process must be decommissioned and the business should return to normalcy. While the time taken and cost to clean up the area are the same in both cases, the first case may require shutting down the assembly line area, which adds downtime cost to this event.
Nowadays most of the meteorological threats can be forecasted, hence the chances to mitigate effects of some natural disasters are considerable. After the disaster detection, a notification should be sent to the damage assessment team, so that they can assess the real damage occurred and implement subsequent actions.
An increase in development leads to a decrease in wetlands and an increase in impervious surfaces such as roads and driveways. In Kaliyug where the predominant subtle basic component is raja, the cyclical changes in creation, sustenance and destruction are quite dramatic. The collective psychological temperament of humankind is closely related to the spiritual level at which the human race affects nature. Ghosts can only be combated by spiritual means such as any effective spiritual practice that conforms to the six basic principles of spiritual practice.
Nevertheless is important to consider documenting the scope of these natural risks in as much detail as possible. Storm events can create flood waters that exceed the capacity of the environment or man-made structures.
Fires remove a buildup of litter on the soil surface, allowing nutrients to be released into the environment.
The weather will begin to start settling down after 2025 and will come back to normal in about 50-60 years from 2025. Levees and dams provide a false sense of security as became evident during the Great Flood of 1993 in the Upper Mississippi River valley. As with drought, scientists believe a link between global warming and climate changes exists. We are in the midst of the lowest phase of destruction in one of the mini cycles in Kaliyug. Evidence suggest global warming may be the cause for an increase in drought frequency and changes in the global climate.
