Complex Thoughts Simple Explanation Shankaracharya

In Hinduism on May 27, 2014 at 21:15

Thoughts in Indian Philosophy and questions raised are very complex.


It delves deep into the subject , not just skims over.



It calls for abstract thinking of the highest order.


However, the Upanishads and Commentator of the of the Upanishads(among other things), Shankaracharya travel that extra mile to make it simple


for every one to understand.


On Reality.


One of the most difficult concepts to follow is the concept of Brahman the ultimate Reality.


It is described as without qualities ,Attributes.


How does one describe something,which has Nothing to describe?


The Upanishads follow the ‘Neti Nyaya‘- Not this, not This.


The reality , Brahman  is described as,


Neither small, nor Big,


Neither short, nor Long,


Neither male nor Female,


…… this goes on.


Now if this seems to be tough, try this one.


The Individual Soul, Jiva appears to be different from the  One, due to ignorance, but once Ignorance is removed, it becomes one with the Brahman.



How is this explained by analogy by the Upanishads, and by Shankaracharya.




Take a Pot.


What is inside?




What is outside the Pot?




Now break the Pot.


Where is the Air inside the Pot and where is the Air that was out side?


The outside air is Brahman , the inside air is Jiva, individual Soul.


On The Illusory Nature of the world-Shankaracharya.


You are traveling  during twilight in a single track in a Forest.


You find a rope. .


In the twilight, you assume it is a Snake and you are scared.


You shine a Light on it only to find it is Rope ,not a Snake.


Now which is true?


The Rope?


The Snake?


Shankaracharya explains.


Though the perception of Rope as a Snake is false, it was true till you switched on the Light.


You were scared.


So, At that point of Time, it  was/is true.


Once it was seen in the Light, it is found to be false.


Now The Rope is found to be true.


Where was it when you saw the Rope.




The world is real as you experience it, till your ignorance leaves you .


The Brahman , Reality dawns when you are without Ignorance.


So the Reality and the world of names and forms are both Real at the same time.


Yet the Brahman, Reality, Brahman is more Real as the air out side the Pot.


So the world is Illusory , yet one has to live through it .



That’s Shankaracharya!

Rig Veda Theorem Unleashes Energy From Space

In Astrophysics, Hinduism on May 9, 2014 at 17:33

I have posed an article how the first two lines of the Purusha is used to Generate Electricity.

Agni Image.jpg

Agni, God of Fire


Let me go further,


In the experiment carried out basing The Purusha Sukta as the reference point the Electricity created was approximately 150% of the Input:



The Power Input was 126 Watts, Output  303 Watts.


That it means that you still need some Input.


What if we can produce without any Input?


I thought of this, when in a recent function where I was a Guest Speaker, a Researcher said that, Brahma is a shrewd businessman, he produces


every thing out of Zero and is efficiently running it at No Cost!’


Valid point for those who read Indian Philosophy.


I was sure that Vedas have an answer to this and I have been able to locate a reference and am sharing it with you.


Unlike Science, Hinduism does not say anything quite openly.


It locks them safely behind Vedic Passwords it would seem to prevent misuse.


There is an interesting School of Thought which states that the Asuras are equally, if not Superior to understanding the Vedas than the Devas.


Sukracharya is a prime example.


He was the only Man to have known the Sanjeevini Mantra, which could revive a Dead Man.


Let me not digress,


Modern Science, with the best of intentions explains you the procedure adopted in arriving at a Scientific Truth, elements , parts involved and gives

you the result.


Hinduism gives you just the results and keeps mum on the procedure etc, leaving this to the deserving if they practice the Qualifying tests to unlock

these secrets.


For the uninitiated the statements of the Vedas might seem mundane.


But if you have a background in the subject  you are interested in and search the Vedas you get the answer.


Such being the case, it is difficult to understand the Vedas, unless you are mentally and ethically qualified, where as in the case of Science being

qualified intellectually would do.


The Rig Veda, the oldest literature known to Man begins with the Invocation to Agni, God of Fire.

” class /> Agnimele Purohitam, Rig Veda First sloka


This sloka addressed to Agni means, literally,


अग्निमीळे पुरोहितं यज्ञस्य देवं रत्वीजम |
होतारं रत्नधातमम || Rig Veda 1.001.01

aghnimīḷe purohitaṃ yajñasya devaṃ ṛtvījam |
hotāraṃ ratnadhātamam || Rig Veda 1.001.01

* Translation by Griffith in 1896
I Laud Agni, the chosen Priest, God, minister of sacrifice,
The hotar, lavishest of wealth.

* Translation by Sa_yan.a and Wilson
1.001.01 I glorify Agni, the high priest of the sacrifice, the divine, the ministrant, who presents the oblation (to the gods), and is the possessor of great wealth. [Agni = purohita, the priest who superintends family rites; or, he is one of the sacred fires in which oblations are first (pura) offered (hita); deva: a god, the bright, shining, radiant; fr. div, to shine; or, one who abides in the sky or heaven (dyusha_na); or, liberal, donor (in the sense of giving); r.tvij = a ministering priest, he is also the hota_ (Aitareya Bra_hman.a 3.14), the priest who presents the oblation or who invokes or summons the deities to the ceremony; fr. hu, to sacrifice; or, fr. hve, to call; ratnadha_tama: lit. holder of jewels; ratna = wealth in general; figurately, reward of religious rites]‘

 Other translations of the Mantra at the close of this Post.

When interpreted by one who knows Physics and Sanskrit the meaning takes a different hue.

“The sloka is a formula . Expansion of a volume involves an increase in the surface area and the
radius is the controlling parameter in a spherical volume which is the predominant shape in a
fundamental matter field. Triggering involves a time aspect that is of a relatively short duration.
Putting these ideas into a mathematical framework we get a formulation giving a numerical result
which is presented in the sloka as a numerical code using the letters of the sanskrit language as
numerical symbols, shown below.
The most astounding part, the answer gives the cubic volume occupied by an expanding sphere of
light or electromagnetic wave in cubic yards per second.
“3 5 5 3 1 2 8 6 1 8 5 1 3 4 5 6 4 8 8 6 2 2 6 9 6 5″
THA M’M. ” [ sloka ]

[number value]

3 5 5 3 1 2 8 6 1 8 5 1 8 4 5 6 4 8 8 6 2 2 6 9 6 5
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

[ digit number]
The sloka has 6 words and 26 syllables, each with a defined numerical value. The number is accurate
to 25 decimal
Digits. As shown below it forms the expanding rate of a relative cubic volume of space, when it is
triggered into
Expansion by a specific theoretical process. It is cubic yards. Taking only the first 15 digits and
converting it into
Metres / cycle gives as the radial value :: (3.5531286185184564E+25)1/3 x .9144 = 3.00612148 x
The number of daily cycles in a year at that time was 365.7388. Therefore the additional
Incremental volume in a year was 1/ 365.7388. Using the velocity of light as 299792458
(as measured today) the additional time cycles in terms of light speed is
299792458/ 365.7388 = 8.1969 x 105
Therefore the Vedic value of the number of cycles of unit wavelength is
3.00612148 x 108
- 8.1969 x 105
= 299792458
The value of light speed then is exactly as measured today.
Next the derived value of light speed as number of cycles of unit wavelength
using the principle of simultaneity (which is self-similar and scale invariant
In confined spaces) gives :
Y = 2 / ((1+22
1/2 – 2)/2 = 8.4721 and 108.4721 = 296575967
Taking the log (10) ratio of difference between measured and derived value as
Log[299792458 / 296575967] =4.6847 x 10-3
The ratio of the Solar Radius to the Earths orbital radius is
6.986 x 108
/ 1.4912 x 1011 = 4.6847 x 10-3
This is identical to the Vedic calculation. The Vedic concept
of the Field of space was different from current views in physics.

Let us try to understand this.

Assign number to the Text.


Check the sloka for words and Syllables.


Check the period in which the Rig Veda was written and find out Daily Cycles.


Use the unit wave length.


Use The value of light speed then, it was as it is measured today.
Use  the derived value of light speed as number of cycles of unit wavelength using the principle of simultaneity (which is self-similar and scale invariant.


Taking the log (10) ratio of difference between measured and derived value.


Well, some one would ask,


What if I want to produce this energy?


What is in the Universe is is in You.


In fact You are the Universe.


You need not go out and unlock it from out side.


You can do it from Within.


What it needs the Scriptural Password that can be obtained by following the procedure laid down by The Vedas.

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.

Hinduism List Of Hell Vishnu Garuda Puranas

In Hinduism on January 18, 2014 at 12:02

Hinduism, especially the Vedas,assert that Reality is a principle,Abstract and can be realized by mental and spiritual discipline.

Worship of Idols is relegated to the beginners.

Similarly there is the Law of Karma, where one is cautioned about his actions as Good actions get beneficial results, bad the Bad.

The Law of Karma operates uniformly even for Gods, when they deign to take Human form or when they perform an action with attachment.

Karma operates independently of every thing, including God, aver the Mimamsa Systems of Indian Philosophy.

But Adi Shankaracharya asserts God is necessary for Karma to operate.

How does the system operate?

There is enough evidence to suggest that apt from being reborn and undergo sufferings,the stages of Hell or in the Mind and the sufferings are related to and restricted to Mind.

But the Puranas also say that there is actual Hell and they are of various types.

Almost all the Puranas deal with this;Kalki Purana and Garuda Purana deal with this subject extensively.

Vishnu Purana , which is classified as  Maha Purana, also deals with this.

Let us have a look at the various kinds of Hell as described in the Vishnu  Garuda Puranas.

1.There are 400,000 types of Hell.

Concept of Hell


2.28 are very important.

4.Those who covet others’ wealth will reach ‘Tamasira Naraka’

5.Unfaithful Spouse-Aniththaamisra.

6.The selfish,who destroy other Families,Liars, false witnesses-Raurava, where they will be an Animal Ruru

7.Those who kill other living Beings for ‘Taste’,Kumbheebaakam.

8.Ill-treatment of Parents, Elders,Kaala Soothram.

9.denial Of God and for leaving one’s Duty,Asipathram.

10.Unjust,Dictators,Panri Mukham.

11.Non Righteous Conduct, harassing other, Krimi Bhojanam.

12.Murderers,betrayals, torturing,Antha koopam.

13.Lustful, Saanmali.

Purusha Suktam Verse 1 Reality Two Fingers Breadth

In Hinduism, Indian Philosophy on January 12, 2014 at 09:23

Purusha sukta (puruṣasūkta, पुरुष सूक्त) is hymn 10.90 of the Rigveda, dedicated to the Purusha, the “Cosmic Being”

Purusha means ‘Male’ in Sanskrit.

Purusha in Tantric system

Tantric representation of Purusha.

Here in the Purusha Sukta the term is applied to mean a Principle,which is virile containing the seeds of Immanence.

(Feminists need not take offence for this term contains, in this context, Female Principle Prakriti is immanent.

As the explanation is about things before creation some term is to be used ”He’; is used and She is not used because the import of the Female term is different.This will be clear as the explanation will reveal later)

The Purusha ukta describe the process of manifestation as Indian Philosophy does not use the term Creation, but only manifestation.

Creation involves bringing forth some thing new which has not been in Existence before.

As everything is Eternal there is no question of Creating something.

Contrary to what many belive the Pursh Sukta is not about Vishnu or Narayana.

Separate Suktam on these Deities appeat later as Narayan Suktam and Sri Vishnu Suktam.

While Narayana is an Amsa of Purusha, Visnu is an Amsa of Narayana.

As Lakshmi and Durga are.

Therefore to complete the Chanting one has to recite all the Five Suktas .

This is the actual Panchamrutha. not the dish we prepare and offer to God as an item to bathe Him with.

When some one says in the Pooja, whether in the Temples or Homes, Panchamrutha Snanam Samarppayami, the Five Suktas are to be chanted.

The Vedas have Four Parts,

Samhitas, which contain Prayers to Gods,

Brahmanas about the Oblations/Yagnas,

Aranyakas, the efforts to realize Reality from the forest, and

The Upanishads, where Reality is described.

The Purusha Sukta is unique in that it contains all the four parts in one Sukta,

Purusha Sukta appears in the Rig Veda 10.90 verses.

सहस्रशीर्षा पुरुषः सहस्राक्षः सहस्रपात् ।
स भूमिं विश्वतो वृत्वात्यतिष्ठद्दशाङुलम् ॥१॥
Sahasra-Shiirssaa Purussah Sahasra-Akssah Sahasra-Paat |
Sa Bhuumim Vishvato Vrtva-Atya[i]-Tisstthad-Dasha-Angulam ||1||

1.1: The Purusha (The Universal Being) has Thousand Heads, Thousand Eyes and Thousand Feet (Thousand signifies innumerable which points to the omnipresence of the Universal Being),
1.2: He envelops the World from all sides (i.e. He pervades each part of the Creation), and extends beyond in the TenDirections ( represented by Ten Fingers ).


Sahsra Seersha-has over 1000 heads-In Sanskrit , innumerable is often called as ‘Sahasra’ or Thousand.

Aksha-has 100 eyes(Aksha-eyes)

Sahasrabath-has over 1000 feet.

Bommim-The Earth,


Vruthvaa-Spread and immanent,

Dasa Angulam-Stands at 10 Inches.

Athyathishtath-Stands, remains.

Angulam means ‘by a measurement of two fingers’

“The fact that the unit of angulam of 1.763 cm could match very well the dimensions of historical monuments establishes the continuity of India’s engineering tradition through the ages for as long as 3,900 years’

In Hindu Theology the personal God Iswara who resides in the heart measures one inch .

In Hinduism, the Psychological heart is said to be on the Right side of the Chest as against the left side for the Physical heart.

In this verse, the external manifestation of the Universal Principle , as can be grasped by the Human mind, is expressed,just as camera film records the size, not in real-time.
