Ranganatha Moves Bala Sayanam Eagle Does Not Fly

In Hinduism on September 19, 2014 at 20:49

Lord Shiva advised Sage Vyargrapadha to worship Lord Ranganatha at SriRangam to enable Vyagrapada to attain Moksha (Vaikunta)


Vyaghrapada was joined by Sage Patanjali in his journey.



Because of  poor eyesight,the sages instead went southward, lost their way and reached KrupaSamudram (current Sirupuliyur).


They prayed to Vishnu to come to Srirangam to grant them moksha.


It is believed that Vishnu originally gave darshan (appeared) to the sages as Ranganatha, the form worshipped in the Srirangam temple.


Because of their old age, the sages could not see the big image of the Lord clearly and hence the Lord appeared in a smaller form known as Bala Sayanam


(smaller recline), a small kid in sleeping posture. Being the Lord in small form and the saint who worshiped was in the form of a tiger, this place is called Siru(small) Puli(Tiger)yur(Living place).


It is believed that the deity of this place gave protection to the snake Shesha from his enemy Garuda (eagle)


A special feature of this temple is that this is one of the only two Divya Desams where the Lord in Sayana Kolam (sleeping posture) is facing the Southern

direction, the other being Lord Ranganatha of Srirangam.


Garuda does not fly over this place-


Fight between Garuda and Adhiseshan


Once Garuda(the Vechile of the Lord) and Adiseshan(on whom rests the Lord) got into an argument as to who was more powerful and devoted to the Lord.

Seeing Garuda a little arrogant, Lord Vishnu went in favour of the Serpant God. Worried that Garuda might be angered at this, Adiseshan seeks Lord’s

protection, upon which Lord asks him to roll himself and lie under him. It is said that as a result of this anger, Garuda never flies over this place.

There is another story that Adiseshan won the argument and since snakes were sworn enemies of Garuda, Adiseshan hid himself under the waters of the temple tank.There is since been a temple for Adisesha.

A separate shrine for Sri Adhiseshan is present near to the pushkarani – known as Ananthalwar Temple.

It is said that one will be relieved of Naaga Dosham if one visits this place. Unmarried people and childless couple can also visit this temple for solution

Lalita Shodasi Fiftten Nithya Devis List Explanation

In Hinduism on September 17, 2014 at 11:59

The Moon is considered as a Devata in Hinduism.


It is reckoned as a Planet in Indian Astrology.


Moon rules the mind and is responsible for the soundness of mind.


If the Moon sign is not favorable, one is assailed by doubts,indecision, confusion ans depression.


Moon waxes and wanes.


From the New Moon day(Amavasya), it waxes.


This period of waxing till the Full Moon (Poornima) is called the Shukla Paksha, Shulka means white.


Waning from the Full Moon to New Moon is Krishna Paksha, Krisha mans black


There are 1 5 Days in between Poornima and Amavasya.


Each day, the Moon’s effulgence(Kala) is ruled by a Devi


They are sixteen .


They Kalas are,


15.Poorna and

The sixteenth Kala is invisible.


Each of these Kalas is ruled by a Devi.


These ae Shodasa(16) Nithyas,


1.Maha Tripura Sundari,
7.Maha Vajreswari,
8.Shivadooti (Roudri),
15.Jwalamalini and
16.Chidroopa (Chitra).


The first one, Maha Tripura Sundari is the Devi Para Shakti herself, and hence the kala ruled by her is not visible to the normal mortals.


In the Sri Chakra these 15 nityas are present in the innermost circle, and the Devi is in the central Bindu.


These 15 Nityas rule the famous 15 letters Devi mantra known as Panchadasakshari Mantra.


Ka E Aie La Hreem Ha Sa Ka Ha La Hreem Sa Ka La Hreem
These 15 Nityas in the form of the 15 Tithis (Phases) have two aspects each – Prakashamsa, which rules the day portion of the Tithi, and Vimarshamsa,

which rules the night part of the Tithi. At night they collect the divine nectar and during the day they release it.
On Poornima or full moon day all the 15 Nityas are in the moon and the moon is shining brightly. On the 1st Thithi after the Poornima, i.e., Pratipada,


one Nitya leaves the moon and goes to the sun and the moon is reduced slightly in size.


This goes on till New Moon.


After Amavasya they return one by one on each Tithi and the moon starts shining again till its full on the Poornima when the last Nitya returns to it.


This is called Shukla Paksha. Kameswari to Chitra are the Nityas ruling the Krishna Paksha Tithis from Pratipada to Amavasya.


In Shukla Paksha the order of the Nityas is reversed, i.e., Chitra to Kameswari.


The Nitya of the Asthami or 8th Tithi, Twarita, is common and constant to both the Pakshas. Hence she adorns the crown of Devi.


The inner triangle of Sri Chakra is known as the Sarva Siddhiprada Chakra and the Nityas are next only to Tripura Sundari in importance.


Kameswari is Goddess Parvati, Vajreswari is Maha Lakshmi and Bhagamalini is Goddess Saraswati.


One Year has 360 days and 360 nights(720)


There are 720 aspects of Devi in a Year.


Each Devi rules 100 Nadis in our body.


Our Body has 72, 000 Nadis.


The Nityas or Eternities of Lalita represent the fifteen lunar days or tithis of the waxing Moon.


Each has her own yantra, mantra, tantra and prayogas or ritual applications.


The full circle of the Nityas also represents the 21,600 breaths a human being takes in a full day and night.


As such, the Nityas are the Kalachakra, or Wheel of Time.


The 15 Nityas are modifications of Lalita with her three gunas and her five elements of aether, air, fire, water and earth.


As the moon remains itself, though appearing differently according to phase, so too does Lalita.

Lalita or Tripurasundari is the 16th day or full moon, with her 15 digits.


Each of the Nityas has a certain number of arms, the totality of arms (= rays) of the whole circle being 108.

Because any unit of time is taken as a microcosm or parallel of any other valid unit, each of the fifteen Nityas thus has 1,440 breaths.

This identity between space, time, Tripurasundari and the individual is elaborated at great length in the Tantraraja Tantra.

The Nityas are the vowels of the Sanskrit alphabet and are identical with both time and space.

For example, if the number of tattvas or consonants (36) are multiplied by the 16 Nityas the number of letters is 576

The multiples of this number provide the number of years in the different Yugas. So the circle of the matrikas and the Nityas is identical with the sidereal zodiac as well as mantra.


This is the primary reason why Poornima Pooja is performed for Devi.


Pooja performed on a Full Moon Day will yield  thousand fold effects.




Vedic Embryology Garbhopanishad

In Hinduism on September 15, 2014 at 20:02

The scriptures of the Hindus, Vedas speak of Embryology.


There are references in the Puranas to Embryology.


1.Dadisi’s Stemcell was taken from his backbone, when Dadisi gave his backbone to Indra, Chief of Devatas to enable him to create a Powerful weapon, Vajrayadudha.


2.Sage Agasthya was born in Pot, with Semen being kept in it.


3.Lord Krishna taught Abhimanyu the Chakravyuha., a Battle formation.


There are more instances, I shall be posting on this in detail.


I have published an article on Human Conception Embryology in The Vedas where I have dealt with references to Bhagavatham and Charaka Samhita.


We have a Upanishad fully devoted to Embryology.


It is Garbhopanishad by Paippalada.


Here is the Translation.



Om ! May He protect us both together; may He nourish us both together; May we work conjointly with great energy, May our study be vigorous and effective; May we not mutually dispute (or may we not hate any). Om ! Let there be Peace in me ! Let there be Peace in my environment ! Let there be Peace in the forces that act on me !
The body is fivefold in nature (the five elements), existing in the five, depending on the six (tastes of food), connected with the six qualities (kama etc.,), seven Dhatus, three impurities, three Yonis (of excretion) and four kinds of food.
Why say ‘Fivefold in nature ?’ The five elements Earth, Water, Fire, Wind and Ether. In this body, whatever is hard is of Earth, liquid is water, warm is fire, whatever moves about is air and space-enclosed is ether. The function of the Earth is to support, water is to consolidate (digestion etc.,). Fire is to see, wind is for moving, Ether is to give space (for vital functions).
The eyes are used in seeing form, ears for sound, tongue for taste, the skin and nose for touch and smell respectively; genital for pleasure, Apana is for evacuation (of bowels). The person cognises through the intellect, wills with the mind and speaks with the tongue.
The six-fold support is the six tastes (of food): sweet, acid, salty, pungent, bitter and astringent.
1-7. Sadja, Risabha, Gandhara, Panchama, Madhyama, Dhaivata, Nisadha – these are the seven agreeable and disagreeable sounds. White, Red, Black smoke-coloured, Yellow, Tawny and Pale-White – these are the colours of the seven Dhatus (primary Humours). Why ? For Devadatta (any person) there springs up in his mind desire for enjoyment of objects. From relish of food blood is born, from it is flesh, thence fat, bones, marrow, semen; by the combination of semen and blood the foetus is born.
Vital warmth springs up in the womb and the belly. In the seat of the warmth bile, Prana flows – at the proper season ordained by the creator.
8. The embryo lying (in the womb) for (a day) and night is a confused mass; after seven days it becomes a bubble; after a fortnight, a mass and in a month, it hardens. In two months develops the region of the head; in three months, the feet; in the fourth, belly and hip; in the fifth, the backbone; in the sixth, nose, eyes and ears; in the seventh the embryo quickens with life and in the eighth month, it becomes complete.
9. By the dominance of the father’s semen, the child becomes male; the mother’s – female. When equal, a eunuch. If, at the time of impregnation, the parents are agitated, the child will be blind, crippled, hunch-backed or stunted in growth. If the couple have vital-air-trouble, the semen enters in two parts resulting in twins.
10. In the eighth month, in conjunction with the five vital airs the Jiva gets the capacity to know its past affairs (of past births), conceives of the imperishable Atman as Om, through perfect knowledge and meditation. Having known Om he sees in the body the eight Prakritis derived from it the five elements, mind, intellect and ego and the sixteen changes [see Prasnopanishad].
11. The body becomes complete in the ninth month and remembers the past birth. Actions done and not done flash to him and he recognises the good and bad nature of Karma.
12-17. ‘I have seen thousands of wombs, eaten several kinds of food and sucked many breasts; born and dead often, I am immersed in grief but see no remedy. If I can get out of this, I will resort to Sankhya-Yoga which destroys misery and yields liberation; or I resort to Maheshvara who destroys misery. Or I resort to Narayana, who destroys misery. If I did good and bad deeds for the sake of my dependants, I shall myself be burnt for the deeds – the others who enjoyed the fruits go away (unaffected).
18. The person being squeezed as it were by a machine is touched by all-pervading air and forgets previous births and deeds.
19. Why is the body so called ? It has three fires: the Kosthagni ripens all that is eaten; the Darsanagni helps one see colour etc., the Jnanagni is the mind which helps perform good and bad deeds.
20. The Daksinagni is in the heart; Garhapatya in the belly and Ahavaniya in the mouth; the intellect is the performer’s consort, contentment is Diksha, sense organs are the utensils, head is the jar, hair is the sacred grass, the mouth the interior of the altar etc.

Here ends the Garbhopanishad belonging to the Krishna-Yajur-Veda.

Date of Garbhopanishad.

Moore hints at amazement with the Garbha Upanishad in almost the same breath. Regarding this text, he writes:
A brief Sanskrit treatise on ancient Indian embryology is thought to have been written in 1416 B.C.

This scripture of the Hindus, called Garbha Upanishad, describes ancient ideas concerning the embryo.

It states:
From the conjugation of blood and semen the embryo comes into existence.

During the period favorable to conception, after the sexual intercourse, (it) becomes a Kalada (one-day-old embryo).

After remaining seven nights it becomes a vesicle.

After a fortnight it becomes a sperical mass. After a month it becomes a firm mass [12]

Pre-2000 BCE
The first question concerns the date of the Garbha Upanishad. Since it is ascribed to Pippalāda, we need to determine this sage’s place in the Vedic tradition, although it is believed that the text may not be as old as the sage. Pippalāda is also the instructing sage of the Praśna Upani¬ad and the author of the Atharvaveda śākhā named after him (Paippalāda śākhā). As a principal arranger of the Atharvaveda, he should be assigned to at least the middle of the second millennium BCE, if the ›gveda is to be taken to be no later than 2000 BCE, as is suggested by hydrological evidence related to the drying up of the Sarasvatī river around this time, and the fact that the ›gveda celebrates this river as the great river of its time, flowing from the mountains to the sea.
According to the Purāªas, Pippalāda was the disciple of the ›¬i Vedasparśa, and he instructed Yudhi¬−hira in the significance of the A¡gāravrata, which is based on a dialogue between ˜ukra and Virocana.
The physiological knowledge in the Garbha Upani¬ad is consistent with that found in the oldest Upani¬ads. Like the other texts, it speaks of recursion, but it doesn’t list as many channels (veins and nerves) as the other texts do. This indicates that this Upani¬ad may be older than what has been assumed.
Pippalāda answers six questions in the Praśna Upani¬ad, a number that is reminiscent of the six darśanas. The six questions touch upon six different aspects of reality: forms (nyāya), basis of life (mīmā÷sā), origins (sā÷khya), devas within (yoga), next world (vedānta), and modifications (vaiśe¬ika). This is not an argument for the lateness of the Praśna Upani¬ad, but rather for the remote antiquity of six bases to reality, which mirroring the six directions..

For Female Child Vaibhava Lakshmi Text Procedure

In Hinduism on September 15, 2014 at 12:43

Though here are many Mantras for begetting a son, there seems to be none for begetting a Female Child in the Vedas nor ,to my knowledge,there are any Yagas.



Probably  the Sankalpa for a female child may be included in the Mantras , Yagas prescribed for a Son.


However there is another way.


The Vaibhava Lakshmi Vrata is performed for wealth.


This is equally powerful in granting the wish for a Female child.


In the Sankalpa, include ‘bahuputhri laabham’


Men and women can observe this vrat. Vrat should be observed for 11 or 21 Fridays.


Vrat should be observed on Fridays only.


One should be on fast on the day of observing the Vrat.


It is preferred to have meals (veg) once a day and the sweet dish that is offered to goddess Lakshmi.


If one can not perform it due to unavoidable reasons, like death in the family, women during period, this can be compensated by performing pooja on  additional Fridays.


At the time of the celebration of the Vrat, ie; on completing 11 or 21 Fridays as decided at the time of oath, one is to distribute  the book “VAIBHAV LAKSHMI VRAT” to 7,11, 21, 51 or 101 women (print outs may also be given)


Have a Sri Yantra Phto or draw with Rice flour.


On the day of observance of the vrat, ie; on a Friday morning, after taking bath, clean the puja room and start the puja as follows:(Begin on a Shukla Paksha, Chaturthi,Panchami,)


Light the oil lamp. Place the ‘Shri Yantra’ (Photograph) in front of you in the puja room.


Before starting the Vaibhava Lakshmi Vrata, one should have a look at the ‘Shri Yantra’ with devotion and touch your hands devotedly to your eyes.


Then one should bow down one’s head to the photograph of ‘Shri Yantra’ and the ‘Eight incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi’ and touch with hands to one’s eyes.


Place a plain red piece of cloth on Aasanam (seat or mat) in front of the yantra.


Spread a handful of rice on the piece of cloth.


Now place a copper or brass kalash (pot shaped vessel) filled with water on the  rice.


Keep a small cup (Arghyam cup) with a silver or gold coin on the Kalash.


One can also keep a rupee coin if one has no silver or gold coin.


Now apply sandalwood paste and kumkum to the kalash and coin.

Offer red flowers .

Vaibhava Lakshmi Legend

Meditate or read the Vaibhava Lakshmi legend

Shri Lakshmi Aarti
Om Jai Lakshmi Mata, Maiya Jai Lakshmi Mata,
Tumko Nishdin Sevat, Har Vishnu Vidhata.
Uma Rama Bharmani, Tum Hi Jag Mata,
Surya Chandrma Dhyavat Naard Rishee Gata.
Durga Roop Niranjani, Sukh Sampati Data,
Jo Koi Tum Ko Dhayata, Riddhi Siddhi Pata.
Tum Patal Nivasini, Tum Hi Shubh Data,
Karam-Prabhav-Prakashini, Bhav Nidhi Ki Trata.
Jis Ghar Main Tum Rahti, Sub Sadgun Aata,
Sub Sambhav Ho Jata, Man Nahi Ghabrata.
Tum Bin Yagya Na Hove, Vastra No Koi Pata,
Khan-Pana Ka Vaibhava, Sub Tumse Pata.
Shubhgun Mandir Sundar, Sheerodadhi Jata,
Ratan Chaturdhsh Tum Bin, Koi Nahi Pata.
Mahalakshmi Ji Ki Aarti, Jo Koi Nar Gata,
Urr Anand Samata, Pap Utar Jata.
Sthir Char Jagat Bchaye Shubh Karam Nar Lata,
Ram Pratap Maiya Ki Shubh Drashti Chahta.

After the Arti, conclude the Puja with the words
“Asmaath Kumbaath Shri Vaibhava Lakshmi Udyaapayaami”
