There is a fine distinction between the Parallel and Multi Verses.

 

Here it is,

 

At first blush it seems crazy — or at least that was my own initial reaction. When cosmologists talk about “the multiverse,” it’s a slightly poetic term. We really just mean different regions of spacetime, far away so that we can’t observe them, but nevertheless still part of what one might reasonably want to call “the universe.” In inflationary cosmology, however, these different regions can be relatively self-contained — “pocket universes,” as Alan Guth calls them. When you combine this with string theory, the emergent local laws of physics in the different pocket universes can be very different; they can have different particles, different forces, even different numbers of dimensions. So there is a good reason to think about them as separate universes, even if they’re all part of the same underlying spacetime.

The situation in quantum mechanics is superficially entirely different. Think of Schrödinger’s Cat. Quantum mechanics describes reality in terms of wave functions, which assign numbers (amplitudes) to all the various possibilities of what we can see when we make an observation. The cat is neither alive nor dead; it is in a superposition of alive + dead. At least, until we observe it. In the simplistic Copenhagen interpretation, at the moment of observation the wave function “collapses” onto one actual possibility. We see either an alive cat or a dead cat; the other possibility has simply ceased to exist. In the Many Worlds or Everett interpretation, both possibilities continue to exist, but “we” (the macroscopic observers) are split into two, one that observes a live cat and one that observes a dead one. There are now two of us, both equally real, never to come back into contact.

These two ideas sound utterly different. In the cosmological multiverse, the other universes are simply far away; in quantum mechanics, they’re right here, but in different possibility spaces (i.e. different parts of Hilbert space,”

 

That is to say that there are many Universes operating simultaneously with our Space Time but operating under its own Laws, including Physical Laws.

 

In the Parallel Universe there are number of possibilities with regard to what we perceive, as what we see is what we would like to see, that is the Reality or the real thing is altered by our Perception or even the very attempt changes the nature of the thing we would like to perceive.

Please read my post(In Astrophysics) on this where I have provided information and Video how what we see is affected by our attempt to perceive it.

 

This is the essential difference  according to latest thoughts on the subject.

 

What does Hinduism say on this?

 

1.That there is only one Reality, Brahman, and there are many Parallel Universes for our Perception.

 

Ekam Sath , Vipra Bahutha Vadanthi’

 

Reality is One, but It is Perceived as Many by the Discerning.

 

Discerning is he near equivalent word for the Sanskrit term for Vipra, though it is translated as the Learned by many.

 

The Context in which the sentence is formed lends support to my view.

 

The Many are Illusory in Nature depending on the level of Ignorance one has of the Reality.

 

The same world, event appears different to different people, depending on one’s Disposition, Swabhava.

 

This applies our level as well as to others.

 

As much as the Reality appears different to different people in our level, there are also other levels, Multi verse where the same Reality is perceived as many by many depending on their dispositions, Swabhava.

 

We, at our plane of Existence ,are aware of only our Swabhava, Dispoitions not the others’ at other levels of existence.

 

So according to Hinduism,there are Multi verses that operate under different levels on par or at the same time(for our reference I am mentioning this).

 

Hence Multi verses co-exist with ours.

 

2.In this sense Parallel verse and the Multi verses exist simultaneously.

 

In the former, at our level of existence we have many possible worlds depending on our intent to perceive.

 

Also the Multi verse do have their Parallel verses depending on the ability of those who inhabit them to perceive.

 

So there are many Multiverses in each of the possible , including ours.

 

3.This raises some interesting possibilities.

 

a) If one were to go back in Time and sees himself in the past, what does it belong to?

 

Parallel or Multiverse?

 

b) Again, according to Hinduism Rebirth is certain.

 

Let us look some example.

 

I am 64 now.

 

I should have died at least sixty four years ago.

 

My children int he past birth must have cremated, buried my body and religious ceremonies should have been performed( It might nor have been performed as well).

 

Hinduism states that the effect of these ceremonies , like Sraddha reach the deceased.

 

And they should have reached me.

 

How does it affect my present Life?

What is Karana In Panchanga ?

In Hinduism on November 18, 2014 at 17:38

You may notice we recite in Apara Karma,

 

‘Yogascha karananchaiva Sarvam Vishnu Mayam Jagat’

 

Everything ,including the Yoga and Karana is filled with Vishnu /is Vishnu.

 

Karanas of the Day.(Thithi)

Karanas of the Day.
Half of Thithi.

 

Karanas are a part of Hindu Almanac, and is half the Thithi,like Prathamai,Astami…

 

They are: 1) BALA, 2) BAALAVA, 3) KAULAVA, 4) TAITIL, 5) GARA, 6) VANIJA, 7) VISHTI, 8) SHAKUNI, 9) CHATUSHPADA, 10) NAAGA, 11) KINSTUGHNA.

The first 7 of these Karanas are movable (Chara) i.e. it cannot be predetermined as to on which dates, these are going to occur, but the last 4 Karanas are fixed (Sthira), and hence can be predetermined.

 

VISHTIKARANA is also called ‘Bhadra’ and commencing any work during this time is prohibited. Bhadra is marked very clearly in every panchanga..

 

. A karana is the time required for the angular distance between the sun and the moon to increase in steps of 6° starting from 0°. There are eleven karanas in total. Of the eleven karanas, four are fixed and occurs only once in a cycle. The remaining 7 karanas repeat eight times to cover the remaining 56 steps.

Vishnu Once in 6480 Years Astronomy Precession Equinoxes

In Astrophysics, Hinduism on November 18, 2014 at 09:25

Hinduism and Indian Philosophy have Scared Texts and legends.

 

The texts are both allegorical and facts.

 

For instance, the description of Patala refers to the physical location of a place inside/underneath the earth, it also denotes a stage of mental degradation.

Pole Star ,Dhruva Nakshatra.Precssion of Equinoxes.jpg

Pole Star ,Dhruva Nakshatra.Precssion of Equinoxes.

 

Similarly the Saptha Rishi Mandal, or the Great Bear Constellation is a fact and it also refers to the Rishis of yore.

 

The Pole Star is Dhruva. the Loka granted by Vishnu to the Child Dhruva.

 

The astronomical events are cloaked in legends and Puranas.

Sishumara of the Sun with the positions of the Stars that change.jpg.

Sishumara of the Sun with the positions of the Stars that change.

 

What is unique is that they are real and also allegorical in describing celestial events.

 

Let us look into some of these.

 

The Post of Indra, the chief of Devas and Dhruva is ex officio.

 

Indra changes in every Yuga, that is the Post of Indra is constant while the person who occupies the place changes.

 

It is said that who does certain Yagas like the Aswamedha Yagas successfully becomes an Indra, dethroning the present incumbent.

 

Severe penance also warrants these results.

 

So Indra disturbs those who engage in these activities.

 

Now coming to Astronomy.

 

Time takes a toll on everything in the Universe.

 

If affects people and non living things.

 

People age so  also the Rocks etc.

 

There are two aspects of Time, one is so minute that you do not notice it and the changes effected by it, like Micro seconds, nano seconds and seconds,minutes.

 

Even changes that occur hourly can be known only with the help of special instruments.

 

The other aspect of Time is it is so huge to be comprehended, like a light year or AU, Astronomical Unit that is equal to the distance traveled by Light in a Year.

 

One can not see this as this is a huge number and one may not be alive to see the change by oneself.

 

Such huge numbers are involved in the Universe in respect of formation of Stars,Galaxies .

 

Now all of us know the Earth has two movements, one spinning on its own Axis and another moving around the Sun.

 

The movement around the Sun’s signs by the earth is so slow that it is not noticeable.

 

Also because of the movement of the Earth and the Stars and other Celestial objects these objects change their  relative places.

 

To put it simply, Stars change positions as also the Earth, taking the Sun as a reference point.

 

That the Sun also moves and there are many Suns is a different issue and I shall be posting on the implications.

 

This movement of the Earth in the Zodiacal Signs of the Sun is called the Precession of the Equinoxes.

 

Put it simply the Stars change places over a period of Time(long time)

 

The Pole Star, the Dhruva Nakshatra is taken as a reference in Hinduism and it changes its place once in approximately 26000 years.

 

This corresponds to one basic Yuga, the Kali Yuga.

 

According to Vishnu Purana Dhruva changes  every Yuga like Indra, Saptha Rishis(Great Bear Constellation), along with the others in the Universe .

 

And the ten Avatars of Vishnu represent these Celestial changes.

 

“THE PRECESSION OF THE EQUINOXES is what determines the movement of the Ages backwards through the constellations. It can be understood through the analogy of the Earth spinning like a top, with the Sun and Moon pulling on its equatorial bulge. This gravitational influence creates a wobble, resulting in the precession or the shifting of the equinoctial points with respect to the stars. The north celestial pole describes a small circle with a radius of 23.5 degrees around the north ecliptic pole, with a consequent westward drift of the equinoxes – the two points where the celestial equator crosses the ecliptic. This is not to be confused with the movement of the Earth respective to the ecliptic of the Sun that occurs every year around March 21st, a movement that ever recurs on that date. What is here spoken of is the greater circle upon which the “ayanamsha” or ‘ascendant of the Earth’ is traced, and which coincides with the annual equinoctial point every 25,920 years. Set against the backdrop of the Zodiac, it takes the Earth 25, 920 years to make a “Complete Round” of the 12 astrological signs and 2,160 years to complete one astrological Age….

 

The Precessional Cycle was described by the Greek astronomer Hipparchus, in the Second century BC. but it seems to have been known in the ancient Vedic culture as well. In past millennia, astrologer priests known as Rishis developed precise formulas for calculating the cosmic cycles, and wove their celestial equations into the fabric of their myths and legends. Principal among these cosmological parables was the “Line of Ten Avatars”. According to tradition, Vishnu, one of the principle deities of the Hindu trinity takes birth at particular points in the cosmic cycle which correspond to the earth’s passage through the ‘Fixed’ zodiacal ages. Vishnu appears every 6,480 years at the commencement of the signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. He appears at the behest of a suffering world and comes to destroy evil and injustice and reestablish the eternal truths of the Sanatana Dharma. The Bhagavad Gita, one of India’s most sacred scriptures, reveals something of this cosmic process in Krishna’s dialogue with Arjuna. Krishna tells his disciple:

‘Whenever the world declineth in virtue and righteousness; and vice and injustice mount the throne, then cometh I, the Lord and revisit my world in visible form, and mingleth as a man with men, and by my influence and teachings do I destroy the evil and injustice and reestablish virtue and righteousness. Many times have I thus appeared, and many times hereafter shall I come again.’…

Universe In Temple Designs Hindusim Angkor Vat

In Hinduism on November 11, 2014 at 09:00

What is in the Macrocosm is in the Microcosm.

 

What is seen or perceive in the Universe is with in the us.

 

The Universe and we are not different.

 

Angkor Vat Temple.jpg

Angkor Vat Temple.

 

The principles in the making of the universe are within us and the Hindu temples keep this point in constructing them.

 

The Hindu Temples are built according to Vedic Principles of Cosmology and the physical structural guidelines are from the Vaasu Sasta and Agamas.

 

One would temples, including cave temple of Gavi Gangadhara temple in Bangalore, have the Sun’s Rays falling on the God’s idol on specific days.

 

Vishnu’s Mathsya temple also has these feature.

 

There are temples where the shadow of the idol falls at a specific pre marked space.

 

There are quite a few temples and  please check my posts under Hinduism.

 

We have the Sun temple at Konark where one can find Astronomy being used in the construction of temple.

 

We have the city of Jaipur built based on Vedic principles,

 

I shall be posting on this.

 

What is interesting is that the principles of the Vedas are fully used in a Temple, which is in Cambodia.

 

It is the Angkor vat Temple.

 

The number 108 represents the distance from the earth to the sun and the moon in sun and moon diameters, respectively.
The diameter of the Sun is  18 times the diameter of the earth.

 

The distance between the human body and its inner Sun is also 108.

 

Number 360,taken to represent an year is the number of bones in the Human body at the time of birth and they get fused into 206  when the Body grows (Satapatha Brahmana)

 

The primary Vedic number is three, representing the tripartite division of the physical world into the earth, the atmosphere, and the

sky and that of the person into the physical body, the pranas, and the inner sky.

Hindu Temples represent the Meru Mountain and Bruhat Samhita lists 56 principles on this.
The AngkorVat.
The most impressive aspect of the temple representation is that it occurs both at the level
of the part as well as the whole in a recursive fashion, mirroring the Vedic idea of the
microcosmsymbolizes the macrocosm at variouslevels of expressions.
This is done not only in the domain of numbers and directions, but also
using anppropriate mythological themes and historical incidents.
Speaking just of numbers, the various lengths and circumferences of units
representing the motion of the moon may equal 27, 28, 29
(nakshatras or days of the month), 354
(days of the lunar year), or 360
(tithis of the lunar year). Other lengths represent the solar
year (360, 365, or 366) or larger
time cycles. For example, the west-east axis represents
the periods of the yugas. The width of the moat is 439.78 cubit;
the distance from the first step of the western entrance gateway to balustrade wall
at the end of causeway is 867.03 cubit; the d istance fromthe first step
of the western entrance gateway to the first step of
the central tower is 1,296.07 cubit; and the distance from
the first step of bridge to the geographic center of the temple
 is 1,734.41 cubit. These correspond to the periods of
432,000; 864,000; 1,296,000; 1,728,000 years
for the Kali, Dvapara, Treta, and Kritayuga, respectively.

Jesus Is Iswara Prajapathi Christian Misinterpretaion

In Hinduism on November 8, 2014 at 11:46

My Father looks like Me,

 

This is what Christian Neo Missionaries are attempting to do by seemingly researched, though sheer  nonsense ,work about Hinduism and Christianity,in their attempt to legitimize Christianity and lure the unwary into the Christian fold.

 

Vatican a Shiva templejpg

Vatican a Shiva temple

 

This follows their earlier attempts to spread the canard about Jesus having visited Kashmir, learned Yoga and his grave is in Kashmir.

 

Please read my post on this.

 

Now they have gone one step further,

 

That Jesus had studied in Kashmir.

 

He was a follower of Rudra.

 

He,as a carpenter, built a King’s palace in India.

 

Jesus is Shiva and Prajapathi.

 

Jesus is Ishwara and this is mentioned in the Bhavishya Purana.

 

Jesus is mentioned in the Rig Veda.

 

My rebuttal.

“The Aryan invasion of India occurred around 1500 BC.  The Aryans were polytheistic, bringing Vishnu, Brahma and the thousands of gods, with them.  Before this, India was monotheistic. Study and dating of different sections of the Rig Veda show that the early monotheistic Semito-Dravidians called God, Rudradeva. There are 75 references to Rudra in the Rig Veda, and these segments are very early, redacted from material dated around 1800 BCE.  There is also a group of hymns to him in the Yajur Veda, today called the Rudram.”

This spreads the myth of the Aryan Invasion Theory, which stands discredited.

 

Read my posts on this.

 

The reference to Shiva i very limited in the Vedas and the term Rudra is am Amsa of Shiva and not Shiva.

 

“It seems that the Aryans later  took one of Rudra’s epithets, “shiva”, meaning “auspicious”, and over time subsumed him into the polytheistic pantheon under this name as a demi-god called Shiva. A trinity of Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma was woven together by the Aryans after 1500 BCE.’

 

Rudra is an aspect of Shiva and not the other way around

 

‘Nama Sivaya cha, Siva Dharaya Cha- Sri Rudram

 

‘The Dravidians worshipped Linga in the temples, the Linga which was the amorphous representation of Shiva. They worshipped Linga by sprinkling it with water or milk, by offering prayers, by meditating on the deity. .. They had an idea of death and judgement after death which was the basis of moral life. But to crown all these, they had a concept of the Triad – An, the Supreme Godhead; Amma, the Goddess; and Anil, the Son. These are the later day Shiva, Shakti and Sharana of the Agamas.”[i]’

 

Linga worship is /was throughout India and not limited to the South.

 

This suggests a religious structure compatible with the ancient Hebrew structure, and might explain why Kashmir was visited by Moses  around 1500 BCE and Jesus  in the 1st century CE.   The ancient Hebrew structure comprised God the Father, God the Mother, Shekinah, and God the Son.

The Spirit of God appears in the Old and New Testaments as the Hebrew feminine noun, Shekinah. Shekinah is related to the Sanskrit word for God the Mother, Shakti, from which comes the Indo-European root for our English word, “she”.

she pron.   Used to refer to the woman or girl previously mentioned or implied. See Usage Note at “

 

Sanskrit was earlier to English by a few thousand Years.

 

Judaism is later to Hinduism.

 

So who follow whom?

 

n the book The Serpent of Paradise by Miguel Serrano and Frank MacShane, p. 79, it is stated that the Nathanamavali records that Jesus studied with the Natha Yogis from the age of 14, was initiated as one of them, and came to know Shiva as his own Father.  He went to the land of the Hebrews and willingly gave up his body at the age of 49, having mastered yoga.   He then returned to India, and founded the cult of the Lingam and the Yoni in Kashmir.

It is important to note here  that Jesus advocated monogamy or celibacy (Matthew 19: 11, 12).  If he taught and practiced tantra, it was not a recipe for promiscuity. According to records in Kashmir, Jesus married Maryan in Pahalgam, Kashmir.  They had a son called Jehoiakim, who had a son called Raj Bhishtay, according to an inscription in the temple on Shankriyacarya Hill in Srinagar, Kashmir, dated 3154 Laukika Era, or 78 AD. (Hassnain and Levi, The Fifth Gospel, pp. 247-8)”

 

Please read my post on Jesus in Kashmir.

 

Aramaic inscription from Taxila

As well as the Nathanamavali, there is further evidence that Jesus accepted Shiva as a name for the monotheistic God, while teaching that worship of  the demi-gods is false.  An inscription in Aramaic found in Taxila, Pakistan, describes the foreign carpenter who built the palace of King Gondophares (ruled 25 – 60 AD) from cedar and ivory as a “pious devotee of Rudradeva”. (Hassnain and Levi, The Fifth Gospel, p. 231)   According to records such as the Acts of Thomas, it was St Thomas who built the palace for the king.  Rudradeva was the early Semito-Dravidian name for the monotheistic God, Shiva, in the Indus Valley, before the invasion of the polytheistic Aryans in 1500 BC. In other words, it seems that the inscription is stating that St Thomas was a pious devotee of Rudradeva.

4. Bhavishya Maha Purana

In the Bhavishya Maha Purana, internally dated 115 AD, Jesus gives his name as Ishwara Putram, which translates as The Son of the Lord.   Ishwara has now become in Inda  a name of Shiva.

5. Prajapati as Jesus-figure in Rig Veda.

There is a prophecy about a Jesus-figure  in the Purusha Hymn, the 90th hymn of the 10th book of the Rig Veda, which  may date from around 1800 BC.  Prajapati is the name given, which translates from the Sanskrit as Lord of Created Beings[ii], and in Hinduism represents the God of gods, the God of all creation. “

 

Iswara in Sanskrit means personal God.

 

There is no mention of Iswara Kumara as Christ in the Bhavishya Purana.

 

And where it appears it refers to Kaarthikeya, Subrahmanya.

 

Pathetic attempt to legitimize a Religion which was framed, not founded  three hundred years after the death of Jesus, whose name is not known.

 

At best Christians can say, we follow Vedas in part, period.
