Shiva Dance Particle Physics And Sun

In Hinduism on April 24, 2014 at 08:17

Current higher Astrophysics’s Principles are  found in Lord Shiva .

His Dancing posture,His Conch’s resonance,His attire, have a striking correlation with the Distances of the Earth,Sun,Earth’s beat,Particle Physics,Wave

Theory and DNA structure.(On DNA and Shiva I shall be posting later)

 

 

108 Karanas of Shiva Dance

Shiva’s 108 Dancing Poses at Thiruvadigai

 

 

Dance forms of Shiva

1.Shivas’ Dance Poses                                         -108.

 

2.Sun’s Diameter                                                   -109 Times as that of the earth(approximately)

 

(Latest Measurement-”Our star is approximately 865,000 miles in diameter, about 109 times the diameter of the Earth.”1.39 × 109 m  Friedman, Herbert. The Astronomer’s Universe. New York: Norton, 1998: 120.)

 

 

 

3.Sun’s Diameter and Distance of Earth from Sun 107(approximate)

 

(The distance to the Earth from the sun at 149,000,000 km = 1 AU is 107 times the diameter of the Sun)

 

 

4.The Resonance  of Shiva’s Conch.7.83 hz

 

Earth’s Breathing rate or   Schumann resonance 

 

Schumann resonances are the principal background in the electromagnetic spectrum[1] beginning at 3 Hz and extend to 60 Hz,[2] and appear as distinct peaks at extremely low frequencies (ELF) around 7.83 (fundamental),[3] 14.3, 20.8, 27.3 and 33.8 Hz.

 

This global electromagnetic resonance phenomenon is named after physicist Winfried Otto Schumann who predicted it mathematically in 1952.

Schumann resonances occur because the space between the surface of the Earth and the conductive ionosphere acts as a closed waveguide.

The limited dimensions of the Earth cause this waveguide to act as a resonant cavity for electromagnetic waves in the ELF band.

The cavity is naturally excited by electric currents in lightning. Schumann resonances are the principal background in the electromagnetic spectrum beginning at 3 Hz and extend to 60 Hz, and appear as distinct peaks at extremely low frequencies (ELF) around 7.83 (fundamental), 14.3, 20.8, 27.3 and 33.8 Hz.[1][4]

In the normal mode descriptions of Schumann resonances, the fundamental mode is a standing wave in the Earth–ionosphere cavity with a wavelength equal to the circumference of the Earth.

This lowest-frequency (and highest-intensity) mode of the Schumann resonance occurs at a frequency of approximately 7.83 Hz, but this frequency can vary slightly from a variety of factors, such as solar-induced perturbations to the ionosphere, which comprises the upper wall of the closed cavity.[citation needed]

The higher resonance modes are spaced at approximately 6.5 Hz intervals,[citation needed] a characteristic attributed to the atmosphere’s spherical geometry. The peaks exhibit a spectral width of approximately 20% on account of the damping of the respective modes in the dissipative cavity. The 8th partial lies at approximately 60 Hz

 

5.Shiva’s Dance, Constant Change- Light and Wave change between Particle and Waves constantly.

 

 

In the basic version of this experiment, a coherent light source such as a laser beam illuminates a plate pierced by two parallel slits, and the light passing through the slits is observed on a screen behind the plate. 

 

The wave nature of light causes the light waves passing through the two slits to interfere, producing bright and dark bands on the screen—a result that would not be expected if light consisted of classical particles.

 However, the light is always found to be absorbed at the screen at discrete points, as individual particles (not waves), the interference pattern appearing via the varying density of these particle hits on the screen.

 Furthermore, versions of the experiment that include detectors at the slits find that each detected photon passes through one slit (as would a classical particle), but not through both slits (as would a wave).[6][7][8][9][10] These results demonstrate the principle of wave–particle duality

Some Intricate Details Of Gayatri Mantra Japa

In Hinduism on April 23, 2014 at 11:34

 

Gayatri Mantra is the Highest mantra of Hinduism.

 

Gayatri is a meter and has to be intoned.

 

It has to be in Five Padas, Five Groupings.

 

Gayatri is the Mother of all Meters,, Gayatrrem Chandasaam Maata,

 

Gaytri Maatha

Devi Gayatri

 

May we meditate on the Glory of the Lord, the Remover of pains and sorrows, the Bestower of happiness, Who has created the universe, and Who is the embodiment of knowledge and light. May the Lord, enlighten our intellect in the right direction by destroying all our sins and ignorance.

Meaning of each letter in mantra:

———————————
OM = Almighty God
BHOOR = Embodiment of vital or spiritual energy
BHUVAHA = Destroyer of suffering
SWAHA = Embodiment of happiness
TAT = That (indicating God)
SAVITUR = Bright, luminous, like and sun
VARENIYAM = Supreme, best
BARGO = Destroyer of sins
DEVASYA = Divine
DHEEMAHI = May receive
DHIYO = Intellect
YO = Who
NAHA = Our
PRACHODAYAT = May inspire.

“May we meditate on the Glory of the Lord, the Remover of pains and sorrows, the Bestower of happiness, Who has created the universe, and Who is the embodiment of knowledge and light. May the Lord, enlighten our intellect in the right direction by destroying all our sins and ignorance.”

This can be translated: Aum. Let us contemplate the spirit of the divine of the earth, the atmosphere and heaven. May that inspire our minds. Savitri is the Sun and this mantra is recited at the three junctions or twilight of the day. Here is described how the mantra Aum hums in the base or Muladhara chakra, and moves through seven stages to the chakra above the head Sahasrara.

 

Maha Vishnu describes Aum as consisting of the following. Bhur is existence, Bhuvah is the elements, Svah is the Atma of everything, Maha is greatness and light, Tat is Brahman (the absolute). Tapah is all knowledge, Satyam is supremacy and internal wisdom. This tantra connects the three letters of Aum to the seven worlds.

 

Tat, refers to the first cause of all substance, as fire in the circle of the sun and is supreme Brahman. Savituhu is the source of all living beings. Varenyam is the excellent one who receives adoration.

 

Bharga destroys sin. Devasya means it is full of light, while Dheemahi refers to knowledge being golden and always within the sun. Dhiyo means Buddhi. Yo stands for energy (tejas).

 

The mantra is divided into three sections of eight letters and four sections of six letters.

 

A dhyana (meditation) – Gayatri as having four faces, which are white, yellow, red and black.

 

Yet the tantrik tradition has different views of the Gayatri. For example, in the Matrikabhedatantra, there is a couplet, which says a person who knows the Brahman (the absolute) is a Brahmin.

 

Gayatri is mother of Vedas. Sadhana of Gayatri mantra is the essence of all Vedas. Even God like Brahma mediates on and performs Jap of Gayatri at the time of twilight.

 

Gayatri Jap performed daily for three years realizes God and like air, acquires the power of going where the person wants to go.

 

Merely by offering water to the Sun and performing Jap of three thousand Gayatri mantra at the time of twilight, a person becomes adorable by God.

 

..

In Bhavanopanishad, one witness within oneself the effulgent figure of Divine Mother with the different phases of the waxing and waning Moon.

The Devi is to be meditated upon as of a ruddy complexion, with eyes expansive, as an ocean overflowing with waves of grace, with noose, goad, arrows of flowers and a twig of sugar- cane in her hand, surrounded by Anima and other deities and ultimately as one´s own self.

1. Complete faith unflinching loyalty backed by a clear heart towards the deity is required for Sadhana.

2. Do not start Mantra Shakti under any pressure. Trust in God, kindness and patience should be the virtues of a Sadhaka.

3. Avoid harsh speech, lust, anger, restless thoughts, evil company and egoism.

Do not get emotional.

Mantras on hearsay should be avoided, as they must be authentic.

4. Sadhana done without any specific aim bears fruits early.

In case you see any miracle, do not fear. Keep your WILL POWER strong and continue your Sadhana.

All troubles will vanish.

5. Brahmacharya or celibacy should be observed during Sadhana. In case of failure, do not lose heart. Try it again and again and you will be crowned with success.”

I will be posting the Text and Meaning of Bhavanopanishad in Tamil and English shortly.

Choose Brahmin Mates Swayamvara At Chennai

In consumer forum on April 23, 2014 at 11:01

I have lamented the fact that the Brahmin Community is finding it difficult to find suitable Mates .

 

This problem has become more pronounced now because of various factors.

 

1.Girl’s parents delaying the marriage.

 

2.Girls and Boys having imaginary Ideal Girl/Boy and waiting for a Wave length.

 

3.As the custom of circulating the Horoscope  is getting diminished because of shrinking Families and same community friends, the choice becomes

restricted to  only Internet, Matrimonial sites.

 

Though these are effective, the communication conveyed through these sites by the uploaders  do not receive possible Brides/Grooms.

 

And in most of these sites, the educational and salary expectations are so high and unrealistic, one wonders how people with less qualification/Income get married at all.

 

In the case of Boy’s parents willing to marry a Girl from of a Family of not affluent means, the girl’s parents suspect that there is some thing wrong with the boy,because of , in their perception,unequal alliance.

 

And in may a case, the communication between the parents of the Boys and Girls do not proceed smoothly as person to person communication is much better than Email/Video Chats.

 

I found the following information in Facebook and am sharing it.

African Religion Hinduism Similarities

In Religion on April 23, 2014 at 08:13

I was surprised at the limited and sanitized version of Religion in Africa.

 

The impact, the subsequent colonization and the effort of Islam and Christianity) in trying to portray the Africans more or less animals and

 

uncivilized(Gandhi subscribed to this view), that there is great difficulty in understanding what the African Religion in its true form.

 

There is a wanton effort to obfuscate the issue by saying and confusing the readers by stating Indigenous and traditional.

 

The indoctrination and doctoring of the History of Religion in Africa, as in India, is to such an extent that ‘Christianity is reported to have been

 

 

practiced by the Africans before Christ!

 

 

 

 

 Early 20th century Yoruba divination board.

Yoruba, Supreme God Divination Board.

1.The African Religion does not have a Text and its traditions are transmitted orally like the Vedas  and does not have Missionaries to spread it.

 

2.They do not have a founder.

 

3.They do not proselytize.

 

4.Just as in Hinduism African Religion is not a Sunday Religion but a way of Life.

 

5.They have one Supreme Deity and other Deities under it, functionality wise.

 

6.There are multitudes of sects but all are accommodated .

 

7.There is Legend of Creation as in Purans.

 

8.Worship of Ancestors like the Pitru Worship of Hinduism is given priority.

 

9.Strict moral Code of Conduct like the Laws of Manu are existent.

 

10.Practice of appeasing Gods as in Hinduism with and without animal sacrifice is mentioned.

 

11.Other faiths starting from Bahai, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity are present among the Africans.

 

12.They believe in Fate.

 

 

 

Often spoken of in the terms of a singularity, deliberate; yet conscious of the fact that Africa is a large continent with multitudes of nations who have complex cultures, innumerable languages and myriads of dialects.

 

 

Followers of traditional African religions pray to various secondary deities (Ogoun, Da, AgwuEsu, Mbari, Thiorak, etc.) as well as to their ancestors.

These divinities serve as intermediaries between humans and the primary god. Most indigenous African societies believe in a single creator god (ChukwuNyameOlodumareNgaiRoog, etc.).

 

 Some recognize a dual or complementary twin Divinity such as Mawu-Lisa.

 

For example, in one of the Yoruba creation myths, Olodumare, the ‘Supreme’, is said to have created Obatala, as Arch-divinity, who then created humans on earth. Olodumare then infused those human creations with life. Each divinity has their own priest or priestes.

 

 

The essence of this school of thought is based mainly on oral transmission; that which is written in people’s hearts, minds, oral history, customs, temples and religious functions.

 

 It has no founders or leaders like Gautama the Buddha, Christos, Ashoka, Christ or Muhammad.

 

 It has no missionaries or the intent to propagate or to proselytise….

 

 

There are more similarities than differences in all traditional African religions.

 Often, the supreme god is worshiped through consultation or communion with lesser deities and ancestral spirits.

The deities and spirits are honored through libation, sacrifice (of animals,vegetables, or precious metals).

The will of God is sought by the believer also through consultation of oracular deities, or divination.

 In many traditional African religions, there is a belief in a cyclical nature of reality.

The living stand between their ancestors and the unborn. Traditional African religions embrace natural phenomena – ebb and tide, waxing and waning moon, rain and drought – and the rhythmic pattern of agriculture. According to Gottlieb and Mbiti:

The environment and nature are infused in every aspect of traditional African religions and culture.

 

This is largely becausecosmology and beliefs are intricately intertwined with the natural phenomena and environment.

 

All aspects of weather, thunder, lightning, rain, day, moon, sun, stars, and so on may become amenable to control through the cosmology of African people. Natural phenomena are responsible for providing people with their daily needs”

 

n spite of these similarities there are important differences in the way God and the supernatural are viewed in African religions in comparison to Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. In most African religious systems, God (or the Gods) after creation was not directly involved in the human society or the individual lives of people. Remember how in the creation stories the Gods were engaged in the creation of people, but after creation, the Gods usually withdrew from direct contact with human-beings?

The idea of an isolated God does not make the supernatural un-important in Africa religions. Indeed, the supernatural, or spiritual realm, is most important to African religious belief. Between an all-powerful God and humans is a pantheon of spirits. These spirits are directly engaged in the lives of human beings, and can act as intermediaries between God and humans.

108 Upanishads Complete List

In Uncategorized on April 22, 2014 at 18:48

Upanishad means “sitting near by’

 

This is the part of The Vedas, the unwritten Scripture of the Hindus, over 5000(Five Thousand) years old and transmitted by oral tradition, that contains the enquiry into the Nature of the World where were We, where we are and Where do We Go from Here’

 

It is a Philosophical treatise that has to be practiced.

 

 

Please read my posts on Vedas filed under Hinduism/Indian Philosophy for more details.

 

Thee Upanishads are called  the end of all The Veda, Vedanta.

 

They are 108.

 

  • 10 upaniṣads are associated with the Rigveda and have the shānti beginning vaṇme-manasi.
  • 16 upaniṣads are associated with the Samaveda and have the shānti beginning āpyāyantu.
  • 19 upaniṣads are associated with the Shukla Yajurveda and have the shānti beginning pūrṇamada.
  • 32 upaniṣads are associated with the Krishna Yajurveda and have the shānti beginning sahanāvavatu.
  • 31 upaniṣads are associated with the Atharvaveda and have the shānti beginning bhadram-karṇebhiḥ.

 

26-29. But by what means is the Kaivalya kind of Moksha got ? The Mandukya is enough; if knowledge is not got from it, then study the Ten Upanishads. Getting knowledge very soon, you will reach my abode. If certainty is not got even then, study the 32 Upanishads and stop. If desiring Moksha without the body, read the 108 Upanishads. Hear their order-
