Integrate ASP.NET Core Identity with Microsoft account
In the previous article you learned to use Microsoft Account as an external login to your ASP.NET Core web apps. In that article you didn't use ASP.NET Core Identity in any way. The Microsoft Account alone was used in the authentication process without any local account. At times you may want to integrate the Microsoft account with a local account.

Authenticate users using Microsoft account in ASP.NET Core
At times you want to integrate external logins with your ASP.NET Core applications. External logins include Microsoft accounts, Google, Facebook, or Twitter. When you use external logins, the login details such as user name and password aren't stored in your local database. They are stored in some external store and you are required to "get in touch" with that external source to authenticate your website users. In this article you will learn to integrate Microsoft Account based login mechanism in your ASP.NET Core web app.

Integrate IdentityServer with ASP.NET Core (Part 6 - Users in Db)
In Part - 5 of this series you learned to stored IdentityServer configuration data such as identity resources, API resources, and clients into a SQL Server database. However, our sample application still uses TestUser objects to sign into the system. As you would have guessed, in a more real-world app you would like to rope in ASP.NET Core Identity to perform membership tasks. In such a case, instead of using TestUsers you would have IdentityUsers (or its subclass). Let's see how this can be accomplished in this concluding part of this series.

Integrate IdentityServer with ASP.NET Core (Part 5 - Config in Db)
In Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4 we touched upon various aspects of configuring IdentityServer, OAuth, and OIDC in ASP.NET Core Web API and MVC applications. Although our sample application is working as expected, it stores all the IdentityServer related configuration in-memory. In a more realistic app you would like to store the configuration in some persistent data store such as SQL Server database. In this part we will do just that.

Integrate IdentityServer with ASP.NET Core (Part 4 - User Claims)
In Part 1 of this series we configured a few pieces about user such as name, email, address, and phone in the Server project. But in Part 2 and Part 3 we didn't use them in any way. Now it's time to do that. In this part of the series we will access user's claims first in the Web API and then in the MVC application. We will also involve these claims in the authorization process by creating a custom policy.

Integrate IdentityServer with ASP.NET Core (Part 3 - MVC Application)
In Part 2 of this series you protected the Employees Web API using IdentityServer. You also invoked the Web API using Postman tool and HttpClient. In this part of the series you will create an MVC application that is protected using IdentityServer and requires valid sign-in credentials from the end users. The MVC application then invokes the same Web API by passing a security token to it.

योगसाधनेतून आनंदाचा D.O.S.E.
अनादी कालापासून मानवी जीवनात आनंदाची प्राप्ती हे प्रमुख उद्दिष्ठ राहिले आहे. भौतिक सुखांपासून प्राप्त होणारा आनंद अशाश्वत असतो हे ओळखून प्राचीन काळच्या योग्यांनी शाश्वत आनंद किंवा सत-चित-आनंद हे अंतिम ध्येय निश्चित केले आहे. सामान्य योगसाधकाला शाश्वत आनंदाची संकल्पना बुद्धीच्या स्तरावर जरी समजली तरी ती प्रत्यक्षात अनुभवायला त्याला अनेक वर्षांचा कालावधी लागू शकतो. मुख्य म्हणजे शाश्वत आनंदाचा उपभोग घेण्यासाठी स्वतःला तयार करावे लागते. या तयारीचा एक टप्पा म्हणून त्याला मानवी पिंडाच्या आनंदाची पाळेमुळे कशात आहेत त्याचे ज्ञान असणे आवश्यक आहे. योगशास्त्रात त्या संदर्भात विस्ताराने मार्गदर्शन आहेच परंतु आजच्या आधुनिक विज्ञानाच्या परिभाषेत त्याकडे कशाप्रकारे पाहिले जाते ते थोडक्यात समजावून घेणे उद्बोधक ठरावे.

सोहं सरितेतील आत्मबोध
खळाळून वाहणारी नदी तुम्ही सर्वानीच पाहिली असेल. त्या नदीचे पात्रात असंख्य जलधारा असतात. त्या जालाधारांत असंख्य जलकण असतात. आपल्याला असं वाटतं की कालची ती नदी आणि आजची ती नदी एकच आहेत. परंतु विचार केला असता ध्यानी येईल की कालची गोष्ट तर खुप जुनी झाली, आत्ता काही मिनिटांपूर्वी असलेली ती नदी आणि आत्ता या क्षणी अस्तित्वात असलेली ती नदी या दोन खरंतर पूर्णतः भिन्न आहेत. त्या नदीतील पाणी प्रतिक्षण वाहात आहे.

"दुसऱ्या" कुंडलिनीची गोष्ट
कुंडलिनी योगमार्गावर जेंव्हा एखादा नवीन साधक येतो तेंव्हा त्याच्या मनावर कळत नकळत काही ठराविक साचेबद्ध गोष्टींचा भडीमार होत असतो. कोण एक कुंडलिनी नामक शक्ती मेरुदंडाच्या खालील भागात असणाऱ्या मुलाधार नामक चाज्रात निवास करत असते. त्या निद्रिस्त शक्तीला योगसाधनेने जागृत करून मुलाधार, स्वाधिष्ठान, मणिपूर वगैरे चक्रांतून भेदून सहस्रारात घेऊन जाणे म्हणजे कुंडलिनी योग अशी त्याची ढोबळमानाने समजूत होत असते. आता या सगळ्या गोष्टींत काही चुकीचे आहे असं अजिबात नाही. जे सर्व बरोबरच आहे. परंतु ही नाण्याची केवळ एक बाजू आहे.

योगसाधनेतील त्रिविध पीडा - कारण आणि निराकरण
मानवी आयुष्य प्रतिक्षण सुख-दुःखाच्या जात्याखाली भरडले जात असते. माणूस योगमार्गी असो अथवा नसो त्याच्या वाट्याला सुख आणि दुःख ही येतंच असतात. गंमत अशी की सुख आणि दुःख हे दोन्ही जरी मानवी आयुष्याचा अविभाज्य घटक असले तरी माणसाची आंतरिक ओढ मात्र फक्त सुखाकडेच असते. सुखांकडे तो आवड म्हणून पहात असतो तर दुःखांकडे तो अपरिहार्यता म्हणून पहात असतो. असं का बर होत? याचं कारण आत्म्याचा मूळ स्वभाव हा दुःख रहित अर्थात सत-चित-आनंद स्वरूप आहे. माणूस आपल्या अंतरात्म्याच्या मूळ गुणधर्मानुसार सुखांकडे आकर्षित होत असतो तर दुःखांपासून दूर रहाण्याचा त्याचा प्रयत्न असतो.

अगस्ती आणि लोपामुद्रा
वैदिक ऋषींपैकी एक महत्वाचे नाव म्हणजे अगस्ती. परम तपस्वी आणि योगी. नेहमी तपस्येत आणि योगसाधनेत मग्न असणाऱ्या अगस्ती ऋषींना संसारात रस नव्हता. एकदा त्यांना स्वप्नात त्यांच्या पितरांचे दर्शन झाले. त्यांच्या पितराना एका खोल खड्ड्यात उलटे टांगले होते आणि ते यातना भोगत होते. अगस्ती ऋषींनी त्यांना त्यामागचे कारण विचारले. त्यांचे पितर म्हणाले - "तू विवाह न केल्याने आपल्या कुळाचा विस्तार थांबला आहे आणि त्यामुळे आमची अशी दुर्दशा झाली आहे. तू जर विवाह करून संतान उत्पन्न करशील तरच आमची सुटका होईल."

षटचक्रांच्या योगगम्य मातृका शक्ती
कुंडलिनी योग ही जरी शिव-शक्ती अशा दोघांची उपासना असली तरी त्यात शक्ती प्रधानता स्पष्ट दिसून येते. मुळात कुंडलिनी ही शक्ती स्वरूपा असल्याने ते साहजिकच आहे. मेरूदंडातून जाणाऱ्या सुषुम्ना मार्गावर मुलाधार ते सहस्रार अशी सात चक्रे आहेत हे सर्वाना ठावून आहे. या चक्रांमध्ये गणपती, ब्रह्मदेव, विष्णू, रुद्र, जीवात्मा, आत्मा इत्यादी देवतांचा वास मानला गेला आहे. त्याविषयी आपण आगोदरच जाणून घेतले आहे. मुलाधार ते आज्ञा या सहा चक्रांमध्ये काही विशिष्ठ मातृका शक्तींचे अधिष्ठान सुद्धा मानले गेले आहे. आज त्या मातृका शक्तींविषयी काही सांगणार आहे.

Pro .NET 2.0 XML
(APress, April 2007)


XML is the de facto language for communication within and between distributed applications, whether they are on the Internet or a corporate network. XML is successful because of two strengths: it has a highly-structured human readable format and it can be transmitted as pure text.

This makes XML-based solutions advantageous over rival technologies like remoting. Pro .NET 2.0 XML is the first book to provide a complete solution to XML on the .NET Framework 2.0 including the new .NET 3.0 extensions that are being released in January 2007. It provides you with everything you need to know to take advantage of XML in every aspect of your job including integration with Windows Communication Foundation.

Professional XML for .NET Developers
(WROX Press, December 2001)

XML is now an established technology for the description and transportation of data, and has made a major impact on almost every aspect of software development. When Microsoft introduced the .NET Framework, they took advantage of XML wherever they could. No other technology is so tightly bound with .NET as XML, both at the developer level and underlying the whole framework. This book aims to give the reader enough information to be able to use XML from within the .NET Framework in the most efficient manner possible. It will explain in detail the usage of all the XML-related .NET Framework library classes for the manipulation, validation, transformation, and serialization of XML data, using both C# and Visual Basic .NET. It also looks at how the developer can utilize the full power of XML within the .NET Framework, for example, with the new XML capabilities of ADO.NET and ASP.NET. As is demonstrated, the .NET Framework itself uses XML, in configuration files, meta data, and C#'s XML code documentation mechanism, for example. This book is aimed at intermediate-level programmers who have started on their journey towards .NET development, and who want to see how to use XML within their applications to its best advantage. Basic knowledge of C# or Visual Basic .NET, XML, and XML related technologies (XSLT, XPath, and XML Schemas) is necessary.
