Types Of Energy Purusha Suktam 3

In Hinduism, Indian Philosophy on January 24, 2014 at 09:09

Etha vaanasya Mahima Athojyaayam Gachcha Poorushah I

Paathosya Viswa Boothanni Thripaathasyamrutham Dhivi II

Ethavvan-Whatever is seen



Purusha-The Reality,


Boothaani Viswa-whatever in the Universe



Asya, His/Its,

Thribaath-three fourths,


Divi-not of here,in Heavens.

Whatever is seen here is His Expressions .

Purusha is Greater than all this.

Whatever is expressed (here) is only a quarter of His (attributes)

Rest is not expressed,in Heavens.

After the next stanza the actual Evolution of the Universe will be described in a highly allegorical Language.

The Reality, according to Hinduism is a Principle.

More specifically Energy.

Two primordial energies are listed.

One is Potential Energy called Prakriti, loosely described as Nature in English.

Another is Purusha the Kinetic Energy.

These two energies are the two facets of One energy, as Science would tell us.

Energy is One.

We name them as different to enable us to understand its workings.

The energy that has the potential to perform is Potential Energy.

That which Performs or induces Performance is Kinetic Energy or Energy in Action or on the Move.

This is Purusha of Hinduism.

Motion is not visible with out both working in tandem.

From the One basic Reality, Its attributes,Purusha and Parkriti become Universe.

Why We Can’t Stop Thinking?

In Behavior, Health on December 2, 2012 at 09:34

Thinking is what makes us what we are.


Too much thinking brings in Misery and as a wag put it,’Life is a tragedy for those who think, but a Comedy to those who feel’.


Recent study reveals that thinking is what makes us survive and make us a complicated mechanism.


However stopping ‘thinking’ is possible, according to Indian Philosophy.


Patanjali’s Yoga Sastra is all about ‘cessation of the modification of Chitta(stilling the thought waves)’


This is described as ‘Moksha’, ‘Nirvana‘ when one realises He is One with the Reality.

‘Most likely you have not needed to worry whether the rustling in the underbrush is a rabbit or a leopard, or had to identify the best escape route on a walk by the lake, or to wonder whether the funny pattern in the grass is a snake or dead branch. Yet these were life-or-death decisions to our ancestors. Optimal moment-to-moment readiness requires a brain that is working constantly, an effort that takes a great deal of energy. (To put this in context, the modern human brain is only 2 percent of our body weight, but it uses 20 percent of our resting energy.) Such an energy-hungry brain, one that is constantly seeking clues, connections and mechanisms, is only possible with a mammalian metabolism tuned to a constant high rate.


Constant thinking is what propelled us from being a favorite food on the savanna—and a species that nearly went extinct—to becoming the most accomplished life-form on this planet. Even in the modern world, our mind always churns to find hazards and opportunities in the data we derive from our surroundings, somewhat like a search engine server. Our brain goes one step further, however, by also thinking proactively, a task that takes even more mental processing.


So even though most of us no longer worry about leopards in the grass, we do encounter new dangers and opportunities: employment, interest rates, “70 percent off” sales and swindlers offering $20 million for just a small investment on our part. Our primate heritage brought us another benefit: the ability to navigate a social system. As social animals, we must keep track of who’s on top and who’s not and who might help us and who might hurt us. To learn and understand this information, our mind is constantly calculating “what if?” scenarios. What do I have to do to advance in the workplace or social or financial hierarchy? What is the danger here? The opportunity?


For these reasons, we benefit from having a brain that works around the clock, even if it means dealing with intrusive thoughts from time to time.’

As we age and our memory starts to function less well, names are most likely among the first things to escape us. You can use tricks to help remember, such as rhyming the name with an object. What is easiest, however, is to keep in mind that everyone has difficulty with names, so you can be less embarrassed when one eludes you and less critical of others when yours escapes them.

‘Audio’ Of Star Vibration

In Astrophysics, audio, videos on November 5, 2012 at 12:35

Using the science of star seismology, astrophysicists turn star vibrations into audible sounds. This is the star Chi Hydrae. Complement with the Solar System set to music.

Vibration of Stars in Audio.

Does this not sound like basic Folk tune, especially of India?

Photo/Video of Spirit/Soul Leaving the Body at the Time of Death

In Hinduism, Indian Philosophy, Interesting and funny, Religion on April 1, 2012 at 23:38

photos showing that the Soul leaves the Body at the time of Death

Soul Leaving the Body





These astonishing images are said to show the human spirit (in blue) leaving the body.
Russian scientist Dr konstantin korotkov claims that the pictures show the exact moment of death.
The images show “the soul” gradually slipping out of the body before the patient’s image turns red…

The activity of konstantin korotkov, deputy director of the st. Petersburg research institute of physical culture and world-renowned authority on kirlian photography, was recently highlighted by life.ru. Korotkov is the developer of the gas-discharge visualization (gdv) technique in kirlian photography.

Now scientists have taken gdv photographs of a person as he was dying. In the photos, it could be seen that the area of the belly lost its life force (the purported soul) first, followed by the head. The heart and groin were the last to lose their life force, in that order.

Scientists using the gdv technique say that the aura of those who die unexpectedly or violently differs from those who experience a calm death. The souls of the former remain in a state of confusion for several days and return frequently to their bodies, especially at night. Korotkov ascribes that phenomenon to unused energy retained by the soul. He suggests that the gdv technique will also have applications for distinguishing genuine psychics from frauds.
