‘Alien Message Embedded In Our Genetic Code’ Discovery News,Shivas


Indian Philosophy details the origin of the Universe in its Scriptures.

Vedas, unlike the other scriptures do not deal with imaginary stories to have more people into its fold.

Vedas express Truth as it has been understood by the Seers and they do not force you to accept nor they condemn you to Hell if you do not accept them.

What is said in the Vedas are scientific to the extent Modern Science can understand it, as has  been proved in many cases regarding what is stated in the Vedas and some are beyond Science as we know it now.

we may have to wait for Science to evolve further to understand the Vedas or we may follow the method suggested by them.

Choice is ours.

What has been accepted by Intuition takes time for the Organs of Perception to unravel.

Experimental verification  takes time.

But it shall vindicate the Truth of the Vedas.

I have posted articles on he various Scientific subjects, theories propounded by the Vedas which have been proved by Science of today.

The Purusha Suktha of the Vedas describe the origin and evolution of Nature at the Macro level and at the micro level it describes the evolution of Life in the Universe.

Vaisheshika system describes the details of Atoms

Kindly read my posts on these.

Now Discovery News has reported a Theory by Scientists that our DNA had the codes embedded By Aliens!

Human DNA sequence.

What they mean Alien, is open for interpretation.

Alien need not be from The Stars.

They could be from different dimensions of Space-Time.

I am providing the news item and excerpt from my earlier Post that Shiva Linga spewed DNA  upon earth.

One may note that Shiva and His son Ganesha left South India,while the ancestor of Rama, Satyavrata Manu left for Ayodhya,and traveled throughout the world before settling in the Arctic and eventually returning to India and settled in the Sarasvati valley.

In their Travels they left their mark in the areas they have covered and The Rig veda was composed in the Arctic.

The Russia was called a Sthree Kingdom, Kingdom of women, Krishna’s son Pradhyumna established a City and one can find more archaeological facts of this nature in this site filed under Hinduism.

No wonder most of the startling discoveries relating to Sanatana Dharma are found in Russia,

 

 

Report from Discovery News.

 

Vladimir I. shCherbak of al-Farabi Kazakh National University of Kazakhstan, and Maxim A. Makukov of the Fesenkov Astrophysical Institute, hypothesize that an intelligent signal embedded in our genetic code would be a mathematical and semantic message that cannot be accounted for by Darwinian evolution. They call it “biological SETI.” What’s more, they argue that the scheme has much greater longevity and chance of detecting E.T. than a transient extraterrestrial radio transmission…

Writing in the journal Icarus, they assert: “Once fixed, the code might stay unchanged over cosmological timescales; in fact, it is the most durable construct known. Therefore it represents an exceptionally reliable storage for an intelligent signature. Once the genome is appropriately rewritten the new code with a signature will stay frozen in the cell and its progeny, which might then be delivered through space and time.”..

This interpretation leads them to a farfetched conclusion: that the genetic code, “appears that it was invented outside the solar system already several billions years ago.” This statement endorses the idea of panspermia, the hypothesis that Earth was seeded with interstellar life. It’s certainly a novel and bold approach to galaxy conquest if we imagine this was a deliberate Johnny Appleseed endeavor by super-beings.

However, there are other possibilities too. I’ve previously written about the far-out notion that the universe we observe was built just for us and exists inside a computer program (with apologies to The Matrix film trilogy). Therefore the idea that some programmer somewhere wrote the genetic code for life in their model universe is consistent with the authors’ suggestions.

Biological SETI inevitably smacks head-on into an idea that is completely antithetical to science: the concept of intelligent design (ID). The proposition of ID is that our biology is so complex it must have been engineered by a higher power.”

Shiva Ling Spewed DNA.(  https://ramanan50.wordpress.com/2014/05/24/shiva-lingam-spewed-first-dna-on-earth/ )

Bathing Shiva Linga with Milk.jpg.
Bathing of Shiiva Linga,Thanjavur

In August 2011,A Meteorite  Shower took place in Alaska, USA.

 

NASA, on analyzing it, found that there were DNAs inside it.

 

 

From the Indian Sacred texts, it s gleaned that ancient Hindus knew Genetic Engineering, Cloning.

 

The Shiva Linga initially must have been a Meteorite.

 

And as it came down it came to earth with DNAs spewing out of it.

 

It is well known that Shiva is Ugra and his name also is Ugra. Ugra means an acid. D.N.A. is also an acid. Vedanta calls that Hiranyagarbha as Sutratma.

Sutratma means an Atma in the form of Sutra i.e. a thread or filament.

The modern science admits that a DNA molecule is really like a thread or filament.

“In a single human germ-cell this filament of DNA is about one metre in length”, says Watson in his book ‘The Double Helix’.

The Yoga-science calls it Mahan, the great. It is really great because it is present in all the living things.

Its molecular weight is one million, so the scientists call it ‘great’. It has no birth. It develops from itself. DNA also duplicates, that means develops from itself. Mr. J. D. Watsondescribes this as ‘self replication’.

Sankhya calls it Vichitrarupa i.e. fantastically shaped. DNA also is fantastically shaped like a spiral staircase or Helix.

Sankhya calls it Vishvatma meaning the Soul of the Universe.

Modern science admits that DNA is the soul or the essential thing of the living world.

It is named as Ekakshara, the immortal, the one who has no denudation, no loss, no end. DNA has no end, no loss – it duplicates or replicates itself, giving rise to itself.

Thus all these seven points tally.

Vedic Brahma Indra Varuna Yama In Japanese Religion


I have written articles on the fact Japanese worshiped Saraswati as Benzaiten and Mahabharata refers to Japan and its Vedic roots.

12 Devas Japanese Religion.Image.jpg
12 Devas Japanese Religion.

Numerous Hindu Gods do find a place in Japan.

Though Buddhism shunned Idol worship, the Religion ended up with worshiping Buddha and many Gods were borrowed from Hinduism into Buddhist Pantheon of Gods.

A sample list.

Deities of the 12 directions in Japanese Esoteric Buddhism (Mikkyō 密教), including the four directions and four semi-directions, up and down, and sun and moon. Deva is a Sanskrit term meaning god, deity, or celestial being. It is rendered as Ten 天 in Japan (天 literally means Heaven or Celestial). The Deva aredeities borrowed from Hindu mythology and adopted into Chinese and Japanese Buddhism as guardians of the monasteries of Esoteric Buddhism. They appear frequently in Japanese mandala. Among the 12,Bonten (Brahma) and Taishakuten (Indra) serve in the highest position. Also known as the Twelve Gods Protecting the World. For a larger listing of nearly 80 Devas.

Hinduism has Eight directions and one God is assigned to each direction.

In Japan there is a ix up of Brahma, Vauna, Agni in this group.

  1. Bonten 梵天 (Skt. = Brahmā); Up; Heaven Deva
  2. Taishakuten 帝釈天 (Skt. Indra); East; Lord of Deva
  3. Suiten 水天 (Skt. Varuna); West; Water Deva
  4. Bishamonten 毘沙門天 (Vaiśravana); North; Wealth
  5. Enmaten 焔魔天 (Skt. Yama); South; Underworld
  6. Katen 火天 (Skt. Agni); Southeast, Fire Deva
  7. Rasetsuten 羅刹天 (Skt. Raksasa); SW; Demons
  8. Ishanaten 伊舎那天 (Skt. Isana); NE, Dharma
  9. Futen 風天 (Skt. Vayu); NW; Wind Deva
  10. Nitten 日天 (Skt. Aditya); Sun Deva
  11. Gatten 月天 (Skt. Candra); Moon Deva
  12. Jiten 地天 (Skt. Prthivi); Down; Earth Deva.

The Twelve in Japanese Artwork. The Jūniten (12 Deva Guardians) originated from the Hindu guardians of the four cardinal and four intermediary directions (Jp. = Happōten 八方天). In later years, the gods of heaven and earth were added to create a grouping called the Ten Deities (Jp. = Jitten 十天), and still later the gods of the sun and moon were added to create the Jūniten (Group of 12 Deva). These twelve generally supplant the Shitennō (Four Heavenly Deva Kings) in esoteric artwork in Japan, although they serve the same role as the Shitennō in protecting Buddhism and crushing evil demons. As a group, the 12 appear from the Heian-era (794-1185) onward in paintings of the Taizōkai Mandala or as a set of processional masks. From the 12th century onward, they were depicted in pairs on six-paneled folding screens called Jūniten Byōbu 十二天屏風. The Kyoto National Museum possesses paintings and masks from the late Heian period. However, to my knowledge, statues of all 12 (as a group) do not exist. The 12 also appear in the Jūniten Mandala and the Anchin Mandala. Four of them also serve as guardians of the four directions and appear on the four directional sides of old steles.

Jana Sankalani Tantra,Secrets of Pranava OM


Jnana Sankalini Tantra is a beautiful and meaningful dialogue between Lord Shiva and his consort, Parvati. In Tantric practices, both Shiva and Parvati are worshipped together, since the former represents consciousness and the latter, in the form of shakti, symbolizes energy.

In tantric meditation, inner bliss can be obtained by arousing energy latent in humankind, and uniting it with Shiva. Tantra uplifts consciousness in order to embrace the cosmic spirit.

Aspects of divinity Shiva and Shakti, play creates the entire universe.

The Jnanasankalini Tantra is a brief work of 107 shlokas (verses) which outlines the dynamics of this interplay.

The secrets of Pranava OM is described.

 

Translation
Mahadevi questioned Maheshvara, the Deva of all devas, the World Guru, sitting on the peak of Mount Kailasha: Speak to me of knowledge! (1)
Devi said – Deva! what is creation and how is creation destroyed? What is the Brahma Jnana beyond creation and destruction? (2)
Ishvara answered – Creation comes from that beyond words (avyakta) and returns to that beyond words at (the time of) destruction. Brahma Jnana is the avyakta, beyond creation and destruction. (3)
From the syllable Om comes everything, the fourteen vidyas, mantra, puja, dhyana, action and non-action. (4)
The four vedas, the six limbs of veda, mimamsa, nyaya, dharma shastra and puranas are the fourteen Vidyas. (5)
For as long as these Vidyas are known, (true) knowledge is not. On knowing Brahma Jnana one is strong in all other knowledge. (6)
The vedas and the puranas are like common whores but the Shambhavi Vidya is concealed like a Kula Shakti. (7)
All knowledge is in the body, all devatas are in the body, all sacred bathing spots are in the body, known through the words of a guru. (8)
Self-knowledge is the cause of happiness and liberation for a man, not dharma, not karma and not the reciting of mantra. (9)
Just as there is potential for fire in wood, as there is scent in flower and nectar in water, so in the centre of the human frame is Deva, devoid of good or bad. (10)
The Ida is the Ganges and the Pingala is the Yamuna. In the centre of the Ida and the Pingala is the Sushumna, the Sarasvati. (11)
The union of the three is known as the king of bathing places. Whosoever bathes there is released from all badness. (12)
Devi said-Maheshvara, what is Khecari Mudra? What is Shambhavi Vidya? What is knowledge of the self? Tell me of that! (13)
Ishvara said-A steady mind without external support, steady breath without restraint, steady seeing without looking, that resembles Khecari Mudra. (14)
Like a child or a fool’s mind drifts in sleep and dream, even without actually being asleep, so a man who wanders similarly without support knows Shambhavi Vidya (15)
Devi said-Devadeva, Natha of the Cosmos, Parameshvara, tell me the differences between the different darshanas, each separately. (16)
Ishvara said-The tridandins are devoted to practice of the vedas. The Shaktas worship Prakriti, the Buddhists follow the void. (Shunya). (17)
The Carvakas, although knowing the tattvas, are atheistic prattlers, denying the existence of the source of all. (18)
Uma said, Lord! Speak of the characteristics of the microcosm! Talk of the five elements and the twenty-five qualities. (19)
Ishvara said-The five qualities of earth (Prithvi) according to Brahma Jnana are bone, flesh, nails, skin and hair. (20)
Knowers of Brahma Jnana say that semen, blood, marrow, urine and faeces are the five gunas of water. (21)
The knowers of Brahma Jnana say sleep, hunger, thirst, fatigue and idleness are the five qualities of fire. (22)
According to Brahma Jnana, holding, shaking, throwing, expanding and contracting are the five qualities of air. (23)
The knowers of Brahma Jnana say desire, anger, delusion, shame and greed are the five qualities of space. (24)
Air comes from space, fire comes from air, water comes from fire, and earth comes from water. (25)
Earth dissolves into water, water dissolves in fire, fire dissolves in air and air dissolves in space. (26)
Creation comes from the five tattvas and is dissolved into them. Greater than the five tattvas is that which is above them, without stain. (27)
The organs of touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing are the five tattvas of the senses. Mind (manas) is the tattva that gives birth to them. (28)
The entire macrocosm is situated in the centre of the body. That with form is destroyed while that without form is indestructible. (29)
Whosever’s mind is fixed on the formless becomes one with the formless. Therefore, by every means, reject that with form. (30)
Devi said-Adinatha, tell me of the seven dhatus. What are they? What is Atma? What is the inner Atma (Antaratma)? What is the Supreme Atma (Paramatma)? (31)
Ishvara said-Semen, blood, marrow, fat, flesh, bones and skin are the seven (dhatus) in the body. (32)
The body is Atma. Mind is the Antaratma and Paramatma is the Shunya (void) where the mind dissolves. (33)
Blood is the mother dhatu and semen is the father dhatu. The Shunya dhatu produced from vital breath is the foetus. (34)
Devi said-Tell me of the nature of speech. How is it produced and how is it dissolved? (35)
Ishvara said-Vital breath comes from the Avyakta, mind arises from vital breath. Speech comes from mind and is dissolved into mind. (36)
Devi said-Where does the sun dwell? Where does the moon dwell? Where does vital breath dwell? Where does mind dwell? (37)
Ishvara said-The moon is at the root of the palate. The sun is at the root of the navel. Vital breath is above the sun and mind is below the moon. (38)
The Cit is above the sun and the jiva is above the moon. Mahadevi, this is to be learned from the mouth of a guru. (39)
Devi said-Where is Shakti? Where is Shiva? Where is Time? What causes ageing? (40)
Ishvara said-Shakti is within (Patala). Shiva is without. Time is in space and causes ageing. (41)
Devi said-What wants to eat? What wants to drink? What stays awake in waking, dream and deep sleep? (42)
Shiva said-Vital breath wants food. Food is consumed by fire. Vital breath is awake during waking, dream and deep sleep. (43)
Devi said-What causes karma? What causes bad deeds. Who does bad deeds? How is one liberated from bad deeds? (44)
Shiva said-The mind does bad deeds. The mind is stained by bad deeds. That mind, having become itself, does neither good nor bad. (45)
Devi said-How does an embodied soul (jiva) become Shiva? What is cause and effect? Speak to me, of your grace! (46)
Ishvara said-Bound by delusion jiva, freed from delusion Sadashiva. You are cause and effect. Enlightenment is different from you. (47)
Folk subject to tamasa wander to this sacred place and that sacred place, thinking that Shiva is here, Shakti is elsewhere, mind is somewhere else and vital breath is somewhere else again. (48)
O Beauteous One, they do not realise the sacred place within the body. How then, can they be liberated? (49)
Veda is not the vedas, the eternal Brahma is veda. Whosoever knows the Brahma Vidya is a brahmin, skilled in the vedas.(50)
After churning the four Vedas and all the scriptures, the yogis have extracted their essence, leaving pandits to drink the butter milk which remains. (51)
All the scriptures are like dirty leavings with everyone speaking of knowledge. The Brahma Knowledge beyond words is not dirty leavings. (52)
The path of Brahma is the ultimate tapas and not ordinary tapas. Whosoever knows the upper semen, he is a deva. (53)
Meditation is not meditation unless the mind is united with Shunya. He who does so becomes happy and liberated, no doubt. (54)
Sacrifice (homa) is not homa unless it is samadhi, in which the vital breaths are sacrificed in the fire of Brahma. That is the true sacrifice. (55)
Good and evil acts give rise to good and evil consequences. Therefore, by every means, a wise man rejects them. (56)
For as long as ignorance prevails, so long does caste and family matter. After knowing Brahma Jnana, one is free from all distinctions of caste. (57)
Devi said-Shankara, I do not understand this knowledge you have spoken of. Devesha, remove my doubts! Tell me how the mind is dissolved. (58)
Shankara said-It is said that Brahma Jnana is like dreamless sleep in which is dissolved mind, speech and actions. (59)
Brahma Jnana, it is said, is a state of one-pointedness, without anxieties, peaceful, free of delusion and bestowing a child-like nature. (60)
In the next line I will declare that spoken by the knowers of the truth. Yoga is the the rejection of all thoughts and concerns. (61)
One who reaches samadhi for a split second or even half a split second destroys the evil of a hundred births instantly. (62)
Devi said-Deva, what is Shakti and what is Shiva. Tell me about this! Reveal the nature of Jnana! (63)
Shakti dwells in the moving mind and Siva dwells in the steady mind. He who is established in the steady mind becomes accomplished while living in the body. (64)
Devi said-Where are the three Shaktis? Where are the six cakras? Where are the twenty one macrocosms? Where are the seven underworlds? (65)
Ishvara said-The upper Shakti is in the throat, the lower Shakti is in the anus. The middle Shakti is in the navel and the Shakti above these is without description. (66)
The adhara cakra is in the anus, the SvadhishÖhana is near the penis. I have spoken previously of the distinctions of the cakras. Hail to that above the cakras! (67)
The top half of the body is called Brahmaloka, below that is Patalaloka. The body resembles a tree with the roots at the top and the branches below. (68)
Devi said-Parameshvara, Shiva, Shankara, Ishana. Speak to me! What are the ten vital breaths and what the ten doors? (69)
Ishvara said-Prana is in the heart, apana is in the anus, samana is in the navel region and udana is situated in the throat. (70)
Vyana is spread throughout the body, Naga moves upward, Kurma is situated in the tirthas. (71)
Krikara is in crying, Devadatta is in yawning, Dhananjaya is in singing and roaring. (72)
According to the yogis, these vital breaths have no support. The nine doors are clear and the tenth door is the mind, it is said. (73)
Devi said-Speak to me of the characteristics of the nadis spread throughout the body. Tell me of the ten nadis arising from Kundalini Shakti. (74)
Ishvara said-Ida, Pingala and Sushumna go upwards. Gandhari, Hastijihva and Prasava move below. (75)
Alambusha and Yasha are situated to the right. Kuhu and Shankhini are situated to the left. (76)
Various nadis, amounting to seventy two thousand, arise from these ten and exist in the body, it is said. (77)
Only a yogi with knowledge of the nadis is a true yogi. Devi, nadi knowledge gives siddhi for yogis. (78)
Devi said-Bhutanatha, Mahadeva, Parameshvara, speak to me! What are the three devas? What are the three bhavas? What are the three gunas? (79)
Ishvara said-The Rajobhava is Brahma. The Sattvabhava is Hari, The Krodhabhava is Rudra. These three devas are the gunas. (80)
These three devas, Brahma-Vishnu-Maheshvara, are one. Whosoever thinks of them as different in nature is never liberated. (81)
Brahma is like semen, Hari is like vital breath and Rudra is like mind. The three devas are the gunas. (82)
Brahma is compassionate, Hari is pure and Rudra is fiery. The three devas are the gunas. (83)
With one meaning, they are the same thing, supreme Brahma, the cosmos, all which moves and does not move. Whosoever thinks of them as different in nature is never liberated. (84)
I am creation. I am time. I am Brahma. I am Hari. I am Rudra. I am Shunya. I am everywhere. I am without distinction. (85)
I am the soul of all, o Devi. I am free from desire, I am space. I am my pure own nature, without stain, there is no doubt of it. (86)
He who has controlled his senses and courageous is a Brahmacari and a true pandit, speaking truth, devoted, generous, steady of mind. (87)
The path of Brahma is the root of tapas. Compassion is the root of duty. Therefore, by every means, rest in the path of compassionate duty. (88)
Devi said-Yogeshvara, Jagannatha dear to Uma as life itself, speak of veda, twilight worship, tapas, meditation, and sacrifice. (89)
Isvara said-One thousand ashvamedha and one hundred vajapeya sacrifices are not equal to even a sixteenth fraction of the greatness of Brahma Jnana. (90)
Travelling to the sacred tirthas and bathing there does not amount to a sixteenth fraction of the greatness of Brahma Jnana. (91)
No friend, no son, no father and no relatives can ever equal the guru, the revealer of the supreme thing. (92)
Learning, tirthas, and gods and goddesses (devatas) can never equal the guru, the revealer of the supreme thing. (93)
A disciple who has received a single syllable (of a mantra) from a guru can never find anything in the world to repay that debt. (94)
The Brahma Jnana is secret knowledge and should not be revealed to anyone but a devoted soul. (95)
The wise should reject mantra, puja, tapas, dhyana, homa, japa, animal sacrifice, nyasa, and all acts. (96)
Associating with others has many defects, not associating with others has many qualities. Therefore, by every effort, the wise should reject the company of others. (97)
The letter a is sattvik, the letter u is rajasik and the letter m is tamasik, these three are Prakriti itself. (98)
The indestructible is Prakriti, Ishvara is Prakriti and is itsef indestructible. From Ishvara came Prakriti which is triple in nature. (99)
Prakriti is Shakti, the Maya, the cause of creation and destruction, the Avidya, the Mohini, whose form is sound. (100)
A is the Rigveda, the letter u is the Yajurveda and the letter m is the Samaveda. (101)
The Om should be known as the three nadas. The letter a is Bhuloka, the letter u is Bhuva and the letter m is Svarloka, it is said. In these three letters the Atma manifests. (102-103)
The letter A is earth and yellow in colour, the letter u is like lightning and space, and the letter m is white and heavenly. For sure the single Om pervades everything and is Brahma itself. (104-105)
Those seated in a steady position, who meditate daily and are free of worries and imaginings, are yogis and not otherwise, Shiva said. (106)
Whoever hears this or reads this every day becomes pure and free of all problems and resides in the Shiva heaven. (107)

Tweleve Forms Of Surya,Sun God Hinduism


Surya, the Sun God  is one of the most revered in Hinduism.

Lord Surya.Image.
Lord Surya.

So much so that Adi Shankaracharya classified the worship of Surya as Sauram along with Ganapathyam,Kaumaram,Shaivam,Saaktham and Vaishnavam.

The foremost duty of a Hindu is the performance of Sanshyavandana.

The God addressed to and the Argya, the offering of water is to Surya.

He is described as the Visible Reality,Brahman.

‘Namas Savitre, Jadadeka Chakshushe,

Jagat Prasoothi Sthithi Naasa Hetave,

Thrayee Mayaya Thrigunathma Dharine,

Virinchi Narayana Sankarathmane’

Lord Krishna says He is Vishnu among the Adhityas.

‘Adhityanaa Aham Vishnu’

Surya is the axis on which the Universe rests and moves.

Surya’s Sisumara Chakra explains the Universe and the movement of Sun and Galaxies

47-48. While the sages glorify the sun-god with the hymns of the Sama-, Rig- and Yajur Vedas, which reveal his identity, the Gandharvas also sing his praises and the Apsaras dance before his chariot. The Nagas arrange the chariot ropes and the Yaksas harness the horses to the chariot, while the powerful Raksasas push from behind.

49. Facing the chariot, the sixty thousand brahmana sages known as Valakhilyas travel in front and offer prayers to the almighty sun-god with Vedic mantras.

46. Thus, throughout the twelve months, the lord of the sun travels in all directions with his six types of associates, disseminating among the inhabitants of this universe purity of consciousness for both this life and the next.

45. All these personalities are the opulent expansions of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Vishnu, in the form of the sun-god. These deities take away all the sinful reactions of those who remember them each day at dawn and sunset. -Bhagavatha Purana.

The Twelve Suns.

. In different Puranas their names are given differently.

Brahma once recounted to the sages the one hundred and eight sacred names of Surya. The Brahma Purana lists these names.

Here are the nine groups of twelve names each.

How The First DNA Evolved Vedas, Research Result


Asking for the first cause in Science is akin to a serious sin

As Science, with its self-made rules, which takes only Perception as the tool of Knowledge ,always flounders  on this issue, Philosophy comes to its rescue.

Though Scientists may ridicule Intuition  in Public, they accept it in Private.

One may recall that many  discoveries in Science were because of a flash of inspiration, from Newton’s Laws of Motion, Clarks’ Table to Einstein’s Theory of Relativity all have been a result of a flash of Imagination.

This is called Intuition.

The Purusha Suktha expalins the evolution of Universe at the Universal Level.

The Reality is described , explaining the evolution of Seasons, Laws etc.

The Purusha Suktha is loaded with energy and the first two lines have produced electricity.

Please read my post on this.

As is a fact in Hinduism, what is in the Macrocosm and vice versa.

Research , applying this , along with the verses in the Rig and Yajur Vedas have delivered stunning results, including the origin of the DNA .

Every thing must have a cause even in Science.

When one tries to explain the First Cause, science fails.

It dictates that you should accept axioms which can not be proved!

But Indian Philosophy and Seers(Rishis) found out the Truth and First Cause, accepting Intuition as a source of Knowledge.

And Science to-day has validated most of the by the experimental method.

Structure of DNA.Image.jpg
Structure of DNA.

Now to the Study of DNA with the help of the Vedas.

The life on the earth has evolved from the fundamental energy Figure 1, the ;life is supported by the three important factors. The – ozone layer in the mid atmosphere, the water on the earth, the conversion of hydrogen into helium. Figure 4 the first life has originated in the water.

Decipherment of Indus Valley Vedic Seals in Modern Science 

Introduction

The Indus Valley Civilization was scientifically developed. It has generated a quest to know their source of scientific development. It has been observed that the excavated seals and the tablets are the hoofs of their traces. The Vedic metaphors have been engraved on the seals. The symbols have vast ocean of knowledge in background. They explore the reactions at molecular level. Its literary evidences can be traced in the Vedic hymns, where a picture of well developed society has been explored Rig-Veda 1-164. With this knowledge the cities like Harappa and Mohenjo-daro can be developed. The symbols narrates the origin and evolution of the creation from the fundamental energy Rig-Veda 10-90, Bell’s theorem 1972 Clauser, Freedman, David Boehm, and Alain Aspect1985

Material and Method

  1. Max Müller, who has the credit to introduce Vedas in the world, with his logical approach,  “What can be more tedious than the Veda, and yet what can be more interesting, if once we know that it is the first word spoken by the Aryan man?” It has been expressed that the Vedas represent first word spoken by the civilized man on the on the earth.

Nature April 2006  the oldest (and first early Neolithic) evidence for the drilling of human teeth in vivo (i.e., in a living person) was found in Mehrgarh.

The Vedas are the book of Science, The Vedic language is a symbolic language, where words are only the indicator of the phenomena, having vast ocean of knowledge in the background. If one knows the related phenomena than only he can give the answers related with the symbols. The Vedic seers were the head of the contemporary Institutes of education, the metaphors and the riddles reflect their examination system. To get the answer from the students the pictographs have been engraved on the seals.

Vishnu Rama Married Mother Bhu Devi and Daughter Sita?


I have been receiving some  intelligent and incisive questions on the Ramayana.

What is the Age of Rama when he married Sita, was he 12 or 24?

How many days did the Ramayana war take , 7 or 13?

Did Rama marry Mother and Daughter?

These questions have been asked to get clarity , not with the intention of maligning Hinduism.

Bhu Devi.Image.jpg
Bhudevi.”Bhudevi”. Licensed under CC SA 1.0 via Wikimedia Commons – http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bhudevi.jpg#/media/File:Bhudevi.jpg

I shall answer the question relating to Rama marrying Mother and Daughter and shall write on the other points with some more in an article as the answer for each of the may be of one or two lines.

Lord Vishnu has only one consort, wife, Mahalakshmi.

All the others are  only Avatars or an amsa of Lakshmi.

Bhu Devi was an avatar of Lakshmi during the period of Varaha Avatar in another Yuga,Aeon.

Bhūmi (Sanskrit: भूमि), also Bhūmī-Devī (Sanskrit: भूमी देवी), Bhuma-Devi or Bhū-Devī, is the personification of Mother Earth. She is the consort of Varaha, an avatar of Vishnu and regarded as the mother of the goddess Sita. According to the uttara-kanda, when Sita finally leaves her husband Rama, she returns to Bhumidevi. She is the mother of the demon Narakasura .[1] Bhumi Devi is also believed to be one of the two forms of Lakshmi. The other is Sridevi, who remains with Narayana.

Sri is Lakshmi and the others ae only manifestations of Lakshmi.

In abstract Philosophical terms, Sri,Prosperity is

Varchasva,  वर्चस्व,

  1. sway (n)
  2. influence (n)
  3. dominance (n)
  4. ascendancy
  5. domination
  6. mastery

Sri Varchaswa Ayushyam Arogyam Mavvthach Choobhaaaana aheeyanthe Dhaanya Dhanam Pasu Bahu Puthra Laabham Sadha Samvathsaram Dhhergamaayuhu

Aaseervatha Mantra

In the case of Sita no where, to my knowledge, Valmiki states Sita was born of  Bhu Devi excepting indicating she s considered to be so as she was found in a Field.

Sita was the daughter of Ravana, though this is mentioned in The version we follow.

There are many versions of Ramayana  by Valmiki.

Please read my post on this.

In the Avatar of Varaha Vishnu married Bhu Devi who was an incarnation of Lakshmi while he married Sita born in a  Field.

I am not sure whether Valmiki states Sita is Lakshi’s incarnation.

But the Sita Pravara says,

Yajur Veda Saakhaadhyaayineem, Aangeerasa aayaasya gouthama trayarsheya, pravaraanvita goutama gotrOTbhavaam, Chaturdasa

Meaning:
This bride named Sri Sita is offered in holy wedlock to you:
She belongs to Yajur Veda, She belongs to Pravara consisting of the three Rishis viz., Aangirasa, Aayaasya and Goutama, She belongs to Goutama Gotra,

She is the Queen of the 14 worlds, She is the head of the entire BrhmaaNDam consisting of innumerable aNDaas, She is the one who permeates all the ChEtana and AchEtana Tattvas,

She is the one who illuminates the lineage of the moon (Chandra Vamsam), She shows extraordinary compassion to all those who surrender unto her,

She is the one who is born from the Sacrificial pit (Yaaga VEDi), She holds in her hand the lotus flower, She has the gait of a swan, She has bewitching eyes like the flower of the blue-black water lily (Neithal) flower,

She wears divine garlands, dresses and ornaments, She has her chest smeared with fragrant perfume of sandal paste, She has her locks of hair in an attractively wavy fashion,

She wears a whitish yellow colored silk saree with borders designed in the form of swans, She wears a scented upper cloth that shines in a natural red hue,

She is Mother Goddess herself,

She appeared in the Vamsam of Nimi Mahaaraaja, She is the great grand-daughter of SwarNarOma Mahaaraaja, She is the grand-daughter of HrasvarOma

Mahaaraaja, She is the daughter of Janaka Mahaaraaja, She is the very incarnation of Mahaalakshmi.

Here the last sentence seems to be a Poetic Licence.

Readers may contribute with authority.

Kauravas Cloned, Test Tube Babies?


There are references  in the Puranas, Hindu Texts,I would not call them figments of Imagination for most of them have been proved by Modern(?) Science to be true, about Stem Cell Birth,IVF.

Kauravas Cloned or Test Tube Babies.Image.png
Kauravas Cloned or Test Tube Babies.

‘”No woman can give birth to 100 children in her lifetime, that too all males and of the same age,” B G Matapurkar, a surgeon with the Maulana Azad Medical College in New Delhi told the conference organised by the southern chapter of the All India Biotech Association.
Matapurkar, who holds a US patent on organ regeneration technique that he developed 10 years ago, said that he was thrilled when he stumbled on a verse in Mahabharata under the chapterAdiparva that actually describes how the Kauravas were created from a single embryo from Gandhari.
He said that according to the description in Mahabharata, the Kauravas were created by splitting the single embryo into 100 parts and growing each part in a separate kund or container.
“In other words,” Matapurkar said, “they not only knew about test-tube babies and embryo spliting but also had the technology to grow human foetuses outside the body of a woman-someting that is not known to modern science,” he aded.

Sage Agasthya was born in a Vessel.

He is called Kumbha Muni, a Person born out of a Vessel.

He is also called Kuda Muni, a Vessel

Mandhata was born in a Vessel.

 

Blog follows on these.

One day Gandhari entertained with respectful attention the great Dwaipayana who came to her abode, exhausted with hunger and fatigue. Gratified with Gandhari’s hospitality, the Rishi gave her the boon she asked for, viz., that she should have a century of sons each equal unto her lord in strength and accomplishments. Some time after Gandhari conceived and she bore the burden in her womb for two long years without being delivered. And she was greatly afflicted at this. It was then that she heard that Kunti had brought forth a son whose splendour was like unto the morning sun. Impatient of the period of gestation which had prolonged so long, and deprived of reason by grief, she struck her womb with great violence without the knowledge of her husband. And thereupon came out of her womb, after two years’ growth, a hard mass of flesh like unto an iron ball…

Vaisampayana continued, ‘That ball of flesh then, sprinkled over with

water, became, in time, divided into a hundred and one parts, each about the size of the thumb. These were then put into those pots full of clarified butter that had been placed at a concealed spot and were watched with care. The illustrious Vyasa then said unto the daughter of Suvala that she should open the covers of the pots after full two years. And having said this and made these arrangements, the wise Dwaipayana went to the Himavat mountains for devoting himself to asceticism.

“Then in time, king Duryodhana was born from among those pieces of the ball of flesh that had been deposited in those pots.

Vyasa carefully ‘loaded ‘ them into small pots or modern day test tubes, preserved/safely held in place by closing them with a piece of cloth and they were carefully attended to by some trained parichaarakas symbolic of ‘incubating’ these test tubes under supervision.The cells from broken pieces of foetus because of totipotential nature of embryonic cells could be ‘cultured ‘ into compete human forms.Even Dronacharya was ‘KUMBHASAMBHAVA’, from a pot and signifies earlier test tube technology of a single sperm and ovum.

Asthabuhja,Eight Armed Devi Worshiped in Mexico


The Vedic Influence in the Americas is very high.

The Mayans, Incas and Aztecs have their roots in Vedic Dharma and Tamil

Please read y posts filed under Hinduism.

The rituals, calendar, Deities worshiped have a close resemblance to Hinduism.

Hindu Trinity – Brahma- Vishnu- Shiva and the Mexican Trinity are Ho- Huitzilopochtli- Tlaloc .

Eight armed Devi in Mexico.image.jpg
Eight armed Devi in Mexico

The idols were represented with serpents round their heads, as for Lord Shiva.-basically raised Kundalini.

The Swastika sign of this area , seen on a “huaco” pot had with four dots inside, a Vedic sign .

The ancient American’s dresses (male and female) were simple and similar to those of Hindu dresses.

 

Ayar Inoa King used to wear a turban, earring and a trishul type trident in his hand.

Archaeologists found many Hindu deities like Shiva, black meteorite Shiva linga, Lord Ganesha, Goddess Kali, Sun god Surya , Buddha etc. (in similar or slightly different forms) which were worshiped in ancient America.

Images of Ganesha have been excavated in plenty in Mexico. This god with the elephant’s trunk is frequently depicted in Mexican manuscripts . Lord Ganesha ‘Ekadant Ganesh’ was found in the temple at Kopan .

 

The image of Hanuman called by the name ‘Wilka Huemana’ and measuring 50 feet in height and 12 feet in breadth was found in Guatemala. Similar one was found during an excavation of an Aztec temple in Mexico City and was known as ‘Euhectal’, a wind God, a monkey God.

 

In the jungles of Honduras idols sit in Hindu mudra meditation pose .

The Hindu doctrine of the ages is found on a massive stone monolith popularly known as the Aztec calendar. This amazing piece of stone disc is 12 feet in diameter and weights more than 20 tons.

 

A festival called Sita-Ram (Situa – Raimi) was celebrated in Mexico during Nav-Ratri or Dussehra period which has been described on page 5867 in the book ‘Hamsworth History of the World’.  ( read my post0

Both in Central and South America, there are found Sati cremation, priesthood, gurukul system, yajna, birth, marriage and death ceremonies to some extent similar to the Hindus. When Pizarro killed Peruvian King Atahualpa his 4 wives committed Sati—or self sacrifice.

Same with Hindu concepts of cataclysm, rebirth, four yugas and the concept of two planets like Rahu and Ketu causing solar eclipse

AZTEC OF MEXICO is derived from “worshipper of Ashtabhuja or Ashtak ( 8 armed ) ” , the eight armed God- found in Mexican temples.

Where Vishnu Handed Over Amirtha, Nectar Thirukadavur Amirtha Narayana


Sometimes,, when many temples are present in a city, all equally significant, as in Kumbakonam, many miss some temples because one temple is quite popular.

This is true of Thirukadavur where Goddess Abhirami is famous , as is Amirthakadeswarar, the place where Abhirami Andhadi was born and people have their Shashtiaptha poorthi celebrated.

Thirukadavur Amirthanarayana Perumal temple.Image.jpg

What people are not aware is the fact is that this place is where Lord Vishnu cut the head  of an Asura who sought Amirtha  and the body parts became Rahu and Ketu, two shadow Planets.

Legend.

With the churning of the Nectar, Lord Narayana was all set to hand over the nectar to the Devas here at Thiru Kadaiyur but to his surprise the nectar disappeared and turned into a Shiva lingam (Amirtha Kadeswarar). Lord Narayana sought the permission of Goddess Abhirami (his sister) to help secure the nectar from Thiru Kadeswarar.  She appeared before him here at Thiru Kadaiyur and helped devas regain their powers.

While the Devas received the nectar from Lord Narayana here at the Amirtha Pushkarani, an asura too secretly picked it up only to be struck down by Lord Amirtha Narayanan. Having consumed the nectar, the asura did not die but had his body cut into two pieces – Rahu and Kethu. In memory of this event, they are seen here together in a separate sannidhi – a special feature at this temple. This is said to be a parikara sthalam for liberation from Rahu-Kethu dosham.

The Temple needs renovation.

Garuda Vishnu’s Mount Increases Weight Every Stage Nachiyar Koil


There are quite a few strange things/events associated with Hindu Temples in India.

There are Temples where Snake comes and offers pooja to Shiva, Sun bathes Idols on a specific day,temple emerges from the sea at a fixed Time,where Crows do not fly over the temple Tower..the list goes on.

Scroll down for Video.

Kal Gaudan in Procession,Nachiyar Koil, Tamil Nadu Image credit The Hindu http://www.thehindu.com/features/friday-review/history-and-culture/unique-drama-unfolds-during-procession/article4244915.ece

Now add one more to this list.

During street procession (Margazhi and Panguni),  English Month December,an unbelievable event takes place at the Nachiyar Koil. While only 4 people carry Lord Garuda out of his Sannidhi, as the Lord goes out of each Layer and prakaram, he is said to increase in weight, that 8 people, 16 and then 32 people are required to carry Lord Garuda out of the temple. Finally, when the Lord is taken outside the temple, Garuda increases in weight so much that 128 people are required to carry the Lord. On his way back, it is said that Garuda mount decreases in weight and finally when he is back in the Sannidhi, only 4 people are required to carry him.

 

This happens every year.

Nachiar Kovil or Thirunarayur Nambi Temple in Thirunarayur, a village in the outskirts of Kumbakonam in the South Indian state ofTamil Nadu, is dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu and his wife Lakshmi. Constructed in the Dravidian style of architecture, the temple is glorified in the Divya Prabandha, the early medieval Tamil canon of the Azhwar saints from the 6th to 9th centuries AD. It is one of the 108 Divyadesam dedicated to Vishnu, who is worshipped as Srinivasa Perumal and his consort Lakshmi as Nachiyar. The temple is the place where god Vishnu is believed to have initiated Pancha Samskara (religious initiation) to Thirumangai Azhwar. The temple follows Thenkalai mode of worship.

The temple is believed to have been built by Kochengat Cholan of the late 3rd century AD, with later contributions from Medieval Cholas and Vijayanagar kings.

This is the 71st Temple built by Kochengat Cholan, the first Temple for Vishnu, the other 70 Temples having been built for Lord Shiva.

Legend.

The sage Medhavi was doing penance at this place. While taking a bath in the river, he found an image ofChakrathazhwar entwined with Yoga Narasimha. A divine voice asked him to install the image in his hermitage and worship it. The goddess Lakshmi, the consort of Vishnu chose to grow in the hermitage and appeared to the sage in the form of a small girl and requested him to take care of her. Vishnu traveled in search of Lakshmi on his vehicle Garuda, the eagle. Garuda found the presence of Lakshmi in the hermitage. Vishnu appeared to Medhavi, pleased by the latter’s devotion and asked his daughter to be married to him. The sage happily married Lakshmi to Vishnu and requested him to stay in his place, which Vishnu accepted.There is another local legend that king Kochengat Cholan was once defeated and he was advocated to seek the blessings of Vishnu, which he obliged.

Prominence to Goddess.

Nachiyar Koil is one of the few Divyadesams where the goddess has prominence over Vishnu. Some of the other temples where the such female dominance are observed areAndal Temple at Srivilliputhur, Azhagiya Manavala Perumal Temple at Woraiyur and Pundarikakshan Perumal Temple in Thiruvellarai. While Srivilliputhur is called Nachiyar Thiru Maaligai, Thirunaraiyur is called Nachiyar Koil.[2]

Vishnu was of the view that during Kali Yuga, men would have to listen to women. Hence he decided that he would first set an example and listen to goddess here. During all festive occasions, the first rights are reserved for Nachiyar, who moves ahead, while Srinivasa follows her. Even the food is first served to Nachiyar and then to Srinivasa. Being a temple where goddess has prominence, Vishnu is located slightly by the side and goddess has the prominent position inside the sanctum.

Patala Loka Americas Entrance in Patalkot Madhya Pradesh


I have written a few articles, quoting Hindu Purana, Archaeology,Astronomical Dating,Comparative Study of Cultures ,Etymology of Languages that the Americas are the Patala Loka, Nether World described in the Hindu Texts is the Americas.The ancestors of the ancient Americans were Hindus/Tamils.

The Ramayana describes the travel of Indrajit,son of Ravana, to Patala Loka to conduct a Yagnya to ensure success in the battle against Rama and Lakshmana.

This Patala Loka was inhabited by  Mahi Ravana,also called Ahiravana, brother of Ravana.

Ahiravan (Ahiravan or Mahiravan), brother of Ravana, was a rakshasa who secretly carried away Rama and his brother Lakshmana to the nether-world, consulted his friends and decided to sacrifice the life of the two divine brothers at the altar of his chosen deity, goddess Mahamaya. But Hanuman saved their life by killing Ahiravan and his army.

(Krittivasi Ramayan)

In the Ramayana, during the battle between Rama and Ravana, when Ravana’s son Indrajit is killed, Ravana calls his brother Ahiravana for help. Ahiravana, the king of Patala (the Underworld), promises to help. Vibhishanasomehow manages to hear about the plot and warns Rama about it. Hanuman is put on guard and told not to let anyone into the room where Rama and Lakshmana are. Ahiravana makes many attempts at entering the room but all of them are thwarted by Hanuman. Finally, Ahiravana takes the form of Vibhishana and Hanuman lets him enter. Ahiravana quickly enters and takes the “sleeping Rama and Lakshmana” away.

When Hanuman realizes what has happened, he goes to Vibhishana. Vibhishana says, “Alas! They have been abducted by Ahiravana. If Hanuman does not rescue them fairly quickly, Ahiravana will sacrifice both Rama and Lakshman to Chandi.” Hanuman goes to Patala, the door to which is guarded by a creature, who is half Vanara and half reptile. Hanuman asks who he is and the creature says, “I am Makardhwaja, your son!” Hanuman is confused since he did not have any child, being an adept Brahmachari. The creature explains, “While you were jumping over the ocean, a drop of your semen(veeriya) fell to the ocean and into the mouth of a mighty crocodile. This is the origin of my birth.”

One has to go 70000 yojanas deeper in earth to reach to reach there.
Mexico and Brazil are exactly below India and one has to dig a hole(tunnel) of that distance to travel vertically.

Patalkot Valley.image.jpg
Patalkot Valley.

Now the entrance  used by Indrajith and Hanuman is in Patalkot (Sanskrit for “very deep”) is a valley in the Chhindwara district of Madhya Pradesh, India.

 

The Patalkot valley is spread over an area of 79 km2. at an average height of 2750–3250 feet above Mean Sea Level from 22.24 to 22.29 ° North and 78.43 to 78.50 ° East. The valley is located at a distance of 78 km from Chhindwara in the North-West direction and 20 km from Tamia in the North-East Direction. ‘Doodhi’ river flows in the picturesque valley. This horse–shoe shaped valley is surrounded by giant hills and there are several pathways to reach the villages located inside the valley.

There is a belief that after worshipping ‘Lord Shiva’, Prince ‘Meghnath’ had gone to Patal-lok through this place only. People say that Kings ruled this place in the 18th and 19th Centuries and that there was a long tunnel connecting this place to Pachmarhi in Hoshangabad District. Traditionally, the site is believed to be the entrance to Patal. This valley had long been cut off from the civilized culture outside and was discovered only few years back. Patalkot has been a home to a tribal culture and custom since its origin.

Hanuman’s Son Makardhwaja ! Worshiped in Honduras


Lord Hanuman is considered as Sreshta Brahmachari while Bhishma, Naishtika Brahmachari.

Sresta means noble, the Best.

Naishtika Brahmachari is one whose Semen does not fall down towards the Earth,

I shall be posting a detailed article on this.

Hanuman is called a Brahmachari, A Celibate and a Jitendriya, one who has conquered the senses.

How come he is reported to have a son?

Hanuman, The Monkey God in Honduras or Mkaratdwaja, His Son?Image.jpg
Hanuman, The Monkey God in Honduras or Mkaratdwaja, His Son? Honduras

Hanuman, after  burning Sri Lanka(having his tail having been set afire by Ravana), tok a dip in the Ocean, to cool of His body, a drop of His perspiration dropped from His Tail.

This fell into the mouth of a Fish,and it delivered a child.

The child was named Makaradwaja.

The term Makara appears many a times in the Puranas.

The word Matsya is also used to indicate Fish.as in Vishnu’s Matsya Avatara.

As Sanskrit does not use the same word for the same object,  I am inclined to think that Makara and Matsya belong to a group of the Fish Family, akin to Dolphin and Shark.

Makaradwaja became the Guardian of the Patala Loka of Mahiravana.

As I have written earlier the Patala is the Americas.

Makaraddwaja is worshiped in La Ciudad Blanca as a Monkey God,

Please read my post on this.

La Ciudad Blanca (pronounced: [la sjuˈðað ˈblaŋka], Spanish for “The White City“) is a legendary settlement said to be located in the Mosquitia region of eastern Honduras. This extensive area of virgin rainforest has been the object of study for many people. Archaeologists refer to it as the Isthmo-Colombian Area of the Americas. Due to the many variants of the story in the region, most professional archaeologists doubt it refers to any one actual city of the Pre-Columbian era.(wiki)

Ancestors of Pre Columbian were the Tamils.’

Sanaischaran With Family. Temple Where Dasaratha Sani Stotra Born


I had written about a powerful Sanaischara Sloka( pronunciation is Sanaischara, not Saneeswara) by Dasaratha, Rama’s father.

There is a Temple for Sanaischara near Kumbakonam, Tamil Nadu where the Sloka was born.

Here Lord Sanaischara graces with His two wives Maandhi and Jyeshta and

His two sons Maandhi and Kuligan.

Thirunaraiyur .image.jpg
Thirunaraiyur .

Maandhi and Kuligan are used (In the Horoscope) for predicting Future and Marriage alliances in Kerala.

The temple is Thirunaraiyur, about 8Km from Kumbakonam.

Buses for Thiuvarur stop here.

Airport.Tiruchi/Chennai.

Railway Station.Kumbakonam.

Chief Deity here is Ramanathaswamu(Lord Shiva).

Goddess Parvathavardhini.

Those who can not visit Thirunallar to worship Sani may worship may offer their worship here.

Manojava Is Tachyon Particle Faster Than Light Mundaka Upanishad


We have a popular sloka of Anjaneya thus,

Tachyon .Image.gif
Tachyon. Because a tachyon would always move faster than light, it would not be possible to see it approaching. After a tachyon has passed nearby, we would be able to see two images of it, appearing and departing in opposite directions. The black line is the shock wave of Cherenkov radiation, shown only in one moment of time. This double image effect is most prominent for an observer located directly in the path of a superluminal object (in this example a sphere, shown in grey). The right hand bluish shape is the image formed by the blue-doppler shifted light arriving at the observer—who is located at the apex of the black Cherenkov lines—from the sphere as it approaches. The left-hand reddish image is formed from red-shifted light that leaves the sphere after it passes the observer. Because the object arrives before the light, the observer sees nothing until the sphere starts to pass the observer, after which the image-as-seen-by-the-observer splits into two—one of the arriving sphere (to the right) and one of the departing sphere (to the left) “Tachyon04s” by TxAlien at en.wikipedia – Transferred from en.wikipedia to Commons by User:Sumanch..

Hanuman meditating

Sanskrit Dictionary gives the following meaning.

मनोजव manojava adj. swift as thought
मनोजव manojava m. speed or swiftness of thought

Vedas have determined the Speed of Light accurately.

Please read my post on this.

Such being the case the reference to ‘Speed more than Mind’ is intriguing.

Reason is that Vedic people have studied Gravity and have treatise on this.

I searched and found the following answer.

 

Seven flickering tongues of the fire(light/energy).
Those are Kaali (black one), Karaali (terrific one), Manojava (swift as the mind), Sulohita (the deep red), Sudhumravarna (the smoke-coloured), Sphulligini (sparkling) and the Viswa-Rupi or the Viswaruchi (having all forms).
Whoever performs his Karmas (Agnihotra etc.), when these flames are shining and in proper time, then these oblations lead him through the rays of the sun to where the one lord of the Deva dwells.


Chapter II  Mundaka Upanishad.

1. This is That, the Truth of things: works which the sages beheld in the Mantras [=The inspired verses of the Veda] were in the Treta [=The second of the four ages] manifoldly extended. Works do ye perform religiously with one passion for the Truth; this is your road to the heaven of good deeds.

2. When the fire of the sacrifice is kindled and the flame sways and quivers, then between the double pourings of butter cast therein with faith thy offerings.

3. For he whose altar-fires are empty of the new-moon offering and the full-moon offering and the offering of the rains and the offering of the first fruits, or unfed, or fed without right ritual, or without guests or without the dues to the Vishwa-Devas, destroys his hope of all the seven worlds.

4. Kali, the black, Karali, the terrible, Manojava, thought-swift, Sulohita, blood-red, Sudhumravarna, smoke-hued, Sphulingini, scattering sparks, Vishwaruchi, the all-beautiful, these are the seven swaying tongues of the fire.

5. He who in these when they are blazing bright performs the rites, in their due season, him his fires of sacrifice take and they lead him, these rays of the sun, there where the Overlord of the Gods is the Inhabitant on high.

6. “Come with us”, “Come with us”, they cry to him, these luminous fires of sacrifice and they bear him by the rays of the sun speaking to him pleasant words of sweetness, doing him homage, “This is your holy world of Brahman and the heaven of your righteousness.”

The properties described for Manojava are same as for Tachyon, which travels faster than light and its speed is equal to that of human mind.
In modern science, Tachyon, (pron.: /ˈtæki.ɒn/) (term in use since 1967) is a hypothetical faster-than-light particle.
In the 1967 paper that coined the term, Gerald Feinberg proposed that tachyonic particles could be quanta of a quantum field with negative squared mass.”

Gravity does affect the time.

That is the reason why satellites are adjusted

The difference on a GPS satellite can be quite significant and hence the clocks on these satellites are constantly readjusted.

A black hole has enormous gravitational pull, strong enough to even hold the light in it, and nothing can escape a black hole.  Escape velocity from the weak earth’s gravity is about 7 miles per second.  Light travels at about 186282 miles per second.  Even this velocity is not enough to get light out of the gravitational pull of a black hole.  The only thing we know that is capable of travelling faster than light, is a quantum particle called Tachyon.  Even this has been described in the Mandukya Upanishad as Manojava.  The characteristics of both objects and particles are uncannily similar. Varahamihira described what could only be a gravitational force when he said, that there must be a force that keeps object stuck on the surface of the earth.

Tachyon.

A tachyon /ˈtæki.ɒn/ or tachyonic particle is a hypothetical particle that always moves faster than light. The word comes from theGreek: ταχύ or tachy /ˈtɑːxi/, meaning “swift, quick, fast, rapid”, and was coined in 1967 by Gerald Feinberg.[1] The complementary particle types are called luxon (always moving at the speed of light) and bradyon (always moving slower than light), which both exist. The possibility of particles moving faster than light was first proposed by Bilaniuk, Deshpande, and George Sudarshan in 1962, although the term they used for it was “meta-particle.

Wormhole Parallel Universe In Vindhya Mountain ? Ramayana


Indian Scriptures and Epics never fail to surprise me with their astounding descriptions of things that are being visualized , nay being though of as A Theory, in Higher Sciences.

The wormhole, Space.Image.jpg
Wormhole

I have posted quite a few articles on Advanced Concepts in Ancient scriptures of India, The Vedas, The Purana and the Epics, Ramayana and Mahabharata.

Painting of  wormhole, UFO in a Cave, Raisin, Madhya Pradesh,India,image.jpg
Painting of wormhole, UFO in a Cave, Raisin, Madhya Pradesh,India,

Be it Stem Cell Research.Weather prediction, Genes Study, Advanced Mathematics,Chemistry, Physics.Biology, the list is endless.

I have posted articles and these may be found under Hinduism.

Now I have come across a shocker of information, that of Wormhole in The Ramayana!

What is a Wormhole?

A wormhole is a hypothetical topological feature that would fundamentally be a shortcut through spacetime. A wormhole is much like a tunnel with two ends, each in separate points in spacetime.

For a simplified notion of a wormhole, visualize space as a two-dimensional (2D) surface. In this case, a wormhole can be pictured as a hole in that surface that leads into a 3D tube (the inside surface of a cylinder). This tube then re-emerges at another location on the 2D surface with a similar hole as the entrance. An actual wormhole would be analogous to this, but with the spatial dimensions raised by one. For example, instead of circular holes on a 2D plane, the entry and exit points could be visualized as spheres in 3D space.

 

Researchers have no observational evidence for wormholes, but the equations of the theory of general relativity have valid solutions that contain wormholes. Because of its robust theoretical strength, a wormhole is one of the great physics metaphors for teaching general relativity. The first type of wormhole solution discovered was the Schwarzschild wormhole, which would be present in the Schwarzschild metric describing an eternal black hole, but it was found that it would collapse too quickly for anything to cross from one end to the other. Wormholes that could be crossed in both directions, known as traversable wormholes, would only be possible if exotic matter with negative energy density could be used to stabilize them.’

Wormhole , in simple words is like a Bedroll/Bed-sheet/Holdall  which can be rolled and unrolled.

That is if one has to travel to the Pole Star which is about 480 Light years away , the point of Earth from where we shall start and the end point ,The Pole Star, where we want to reach may be held together as we would a piece of cloth and be rolled, thus making these point very near.

Space has infinite distances.

This bedroll called a Wormhole can be used to shrink the distance and by entering into it one can reach longer distances by entering into the wormhole and emerging on the other side in a short span of Time.

Wormhole in The Ramayana.

In the Ramayana, Sugreeva directs his Vanara Army to search for Sita.

Hanuman ,Angada and the other Vanaras, contrary to Sugreeva’s instruction over stayed in the Vindhya Mountains and came across a cave, Riksha, a cavity.

It was guarded by Maya, under the name of Swayamprabha.

There Hanuman and others  became disoriented .

They found, inside the cave verdant flowers and spring, Swans leaving with drenched bodies.

‘On entering the Cave, they the monkeys beheld choicest mansions everywhere made out of gold and silver, some with golden and some with silver domes, while some with golden and some with silver multi-stories, but all are studded with lapis gems with golden windows covered with laceworks of pearls. They have also seen everywhere flowered and fruited trees that are similar in shine to red corals and rubies, and golden honeybees, as well as honeys.

They beheld everywhere diverse and capacious beds and seats that are amazingly crafted with gemstones and gold, and stacks of utensils made of gold, silver and bell metal. They saw the stockpiles of heavenly aloe vera substances and sandalwood sticks and depurated eatables, tubers and fruits. They have also seen top-grade soft drinks, luscious honeys, heaps of finest quality clothing, exotic blankets and sheaves of deerskins. Vanara-s have also observed mounds of undefiled gold stockpiled here and there glowing with the glow of ritual fire’

Hanuman also noted that the Time was lapsing.

Remembering that the deadline given by Sugreeva was nearing, He requested the Lady Maya, Swayam Prabha, to deliver all the Vanaras from the Pit.

She obliged.

Ramayana states,

‘Monkeys enter Riksha cavity, an unsightly and gloomy one, during their search in southern direction. While groping in that dark they loose time set by Sugreeva. Finally, they see luminosity and extraordinarily built mansions, woodlands, trees and lakes. Thereupon they catch sight of an elderly sainted lady and they all approach her asking after the legend of that cavity.

Tara have searched that province in southern direction that is encompassed with interlocked mountains, and during their search there they have observed a wide-opened and impassable cavity known as Riksha cavity which is well guarded by a demon called Maya.

Their eyesight, or their vigour, or their valorousness is rendered ineffectual, and their permeation is just like the directionless air as their eyesight is thwarted in gloominess’

It may be noted that the description resembles that of a Black-hole.

And the presence of birds with water dripping from their bodies in the cave here there was no water body and the existence of buildings made of Gold, Silver inside a Cave and different types of Beings indicate a different world.

Only on Exiting the cave do the Vanaras become normal and find the normal terrain of the Earth.

‘On listening to Hanuman about the plight of monkeys by which they entered this cavity in searching for Seetha, Sainted Lady Swayamprabha becomes sympathetic and offers guestship.
When entreated by Hanuman for an exit from that incarceration, and as the time frame set by Sugreeva is lapsed in this very cavity, Swayamprabha asks Vanaras to cover their eyes and then uses her ascetic powers to transport the monkeys from that cave, which exit is otherwise impossible for any other intruder, in his aliveness.
After exiting from black cave, vanaras find themselves lose to an ocean located south of the Vindyas.

Instead of landing just after the Vindhyas  , they land quite far  near the Ocean, overshooting the Land by a few hundred Miles.’

The legend of the world being rolled in appears in the Legend of Hiranyaksha, brother of Hiranyakasipu, who rolled the earth and hid it , only to be recovered by Lord Vishnu.

Vishnu picks up the Roll and re-rolls it.

Vishnu Purana , in the narration of Mandhata, ancestor of Lord Rama, states that when Mandhata visited Brahma in Brahma Loka for a few minutes after traveling, found , on return, that hundreds of Years have passed in the Earth!

Similar legends abound in the Eighteen Puranas.

The entry and exit by the Vanaras echoes the ‘ Einstein–Rosen bridge’

‘A group of anthropologists, lead by archaeologist Mohammed Wasim Khan of the Archeological Environment Research and Tribal Welfare Society, working with hill tribes in Hoshangabad, earlier known as Narmadapura in Madhya Pradesh made a startling discovery.
They found caves hidden in a deep jungle in Raisin. In one such caves was found an amazing ancient painting which shows a person in a catsuit, a UFO like flying object, and a cylindrical spring like shape (wormhole path ?).’

A word to sneering doubting Thomases about these legends.

Please note that the term Wormhole is not considered proven but deduced and perceived to a Hypothesis and people take it as True without reservations.

Why not the Ramayana, whose date, geographical dates have been proved beyond doubt.

Here you are dealing with some thing far more advanced that your modern concepts.

Wait till you get to know more about Physics when it becomes more advanced.

* The Verse are from The Ramayana Kishintakanda, Sarga 50.

More can be found in Sargas 51 and 52.

Heavenly Trail Chief Pitru Aryaman Milky Way


 

Heavenly Trail,Image.jpg
Heavenly Trail,Photo by Thomas Zimmer1 NE’ER is he injured whom the Gods Varuṇa, Mitra, Aryaman,

A photograph taken by Thomas Zimmer has become viral and has been doing the round on September 8th, 2012 in his blog had 1.6 Million hits..

Some one called it Heavenly Trail and it is incorrect or the following information is true either.

“There’s this place in Ireland where every two years, the stars line up with this trail on June 10th to June 18th. It’s called Heaven’s Trail.””

I refreshed my  memory whether Sanatana Dharma has something to say on this Heavenly Show.

Hinduism refers to Milky way in three ways.

One is that it is the Milk of Ocean where Lord Vishnu Eternally resides.

I have posted an article on this explaining that Vishnu’s Navel Galaxy is hinted here and Surya Siddhanta uses this in Astronomical calculations.

“Hindu Astronomy, which is intricately linked to Indian Philosophy(in Hinduism all these are intricately interwoven) calls the Center of our Universe,Galaxy)  as Vishnu Nabhi, the navel of Lord Vishnu.’

Vishnu's Navel.Image.gif
The Galactic center. In our home galaxy, the Galactic Center corresponds to an area of space between the constellations of Scorpio and Sagittarius, its critical points are in the Gandanta degrees of these signs. Image from:http://starworlds.blogspot.in/2010/11/astroweather-transformative-alignments.html

The other reference is  to Aryaman , a Vedic God.

We use this in Shanti Mantra with many not knowing who Aryaman is.

Sanno mithrah Sama Vaunah,

Sanno Bhavath Aryaman.

Aryaman is referred to in the Rig Veda as follows.

 

The excellently wise, protect.
2 He prospers ever, free from scathe, whom they, as with full hands, enrich,
Whom they preserve from every foe.
3 The Kings drive far away from him his troubles and his enemies,
And lead him safely o’er distress.
4 Thornless, Ādityas, is the path, easy for him who seeks the Law:
With him is naught to anger you.
5 What sacrifice, Ādityas, ye Heroes guide by the path direct,—
May that come nigh unto your thought.
6 That mortal, ever unsubdued, gains wealth and every precious thing,
And children also of his own.
7 How, my friends, shall we prepare Aryaman’s and Mitra’s laud,
Glorious food of Varuṇa?
8 I point not out to you a man who strikes the pious, or reviles:
Only with hymns I call you nigh.
9 Let him not love to speak ill words: but fear the One who holds all four
Within his hand, until they fall. -Rig Veda Hymn XLI Varuna Mitra Aryaman

Aryaman (अर्यमन्‌, pronounced as “aryaman”; nominative singular is aryama) is one ofthe early Vedic deities. His name signifies “bosom friend”, “play-fellow” or “companion”.He is the third son of Aditi, the mother of the Adityas. In the RigVeda Aryaman is described as the protector of mares, and the Milky Way (aryamṇáḥ pánthāḥ) is said to be his path. Aryaman is commonly invoked together with Varuna-Mitra, Bhaga, Bṛhaspati, and other Adityas and Asuras. According to Griffith, the Rig Veda also suggests that Aryaman is a supreme deity alongside Mitra and Varuna.

The Hindu marriage oaths are administered with an invocation to Aryaman being the witness to the event.

Aryaman is also known to be the friend of the Pitrus, the departed.

anantascasmi naganam

varuno yadasamaham |

pitrunamaryama casmi

yamah samyamatamaham |

-Bhagavad Gita

Among cobras I am Ananta, Sesha; among aquatic beings, I am Varuna; among manes I am Aryaman and among controllers I am Yama.

 

* (i) “naganam”: Apte’s dictionary gives the meaning ‘cobra’, which is poisonous. Sridhara says a naga is a non-poisonous snake. Ramanuja and Madhva say just ‘many headed’.

 

* (ii) “yadasam”= ‘water deities’ according to Sivanada and Chidbavananda. ‘aquatic beings’ according to Srdhara and Apte’s dictionary.

 

* (iii) Aryaman is the foremost of the pitrus.

 

*(iv) “samyamatam” = ‘of those who punish’-Ramanuja;

            ‘of those that govern ‘- Madhva;

            ‘of regulators’ – Sridhara;

            ‘of controllers, dispensers of justice’ – Chidbavananda;

            of those who maintain law & order – Dr. Radhakrishna.

The third is that it is called the Akash Ganga, Heavely Ganges (River)

Lingam Discovery By Rama Gupteshwar Mahadev Odisha


Lord Rama, while He was in Dandkaranya discovered a Swayambhu(self-made) Shiva Linga in a Cave in Odisha.

This is the Gupeshwar Mahadev Temple, in a Cave.

The shrine is called “Gupteswar” which means the “Hidden God”. It is so named because it was lying hidden in the cave for a very long period. One can reach it by climbing the 200 steps flanked with rows of champak trees. The entrance of the cave is about 3 m wide and 2 m in height. There are also several other caves nearby. Inside the second cave there is a large stalactite. People worship it as the udder of God Kamadhenu (the divine cow) and wait under it with outstretched palms to collect drops of water which fall only at long intervals.

However, with the passing of time, the temple was abandoned. Later, in the last part of the 19th century, a hunter of the Ramgiri area found the lingam. Since then the lingam has been worshipped by the tribes of Koraput region. In Shivaratri (a Hindu festival) Gupteswar Temple draws over 200,000 devotees from Odisha, Andhra Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. People suffering from incurable diseases come here to worship the God and remain here for months in the hope of getting cured.

How to reach

Gupteshwar is  55 Km fromJeypore, Koraput District in the state of Odisha, India.

Gupeshwar Mahadev,Odisha.image.jpg
Gupeshwar Mahadev,Odisha

There is no direct public transport available to reach Gupteshwar, you have to hair a vehicle from Jeypore or from nearby places. Usually rugged vehicle or MUV are better choice for this hill road. Even though it is tar road but in several places ditches are there and in some places high slops are there.

Ater travelling 12 KM from Jeypore you will cross Patraput bridge, this is one of the picnic spot of Jeypore residents. After crossing the bridge within 1 KM distance you will reach a Y junction. Straight road will go to Boipariguda ( 9 KM ) and then Gupteshwar, left side road will take you to Lamtaput ( 22 KM ), Machakund ( 45 KM ), Jalaput ( 59 KM ), Vizag (198 KM).

BrahmaSirōnāmāstra Counter To Brahmastra, The Nuclear Weapon


Weapons are of two kinds.

One is called Sastra ,another Astra.

Brahmastra.image.png
Brahmastra.

While Sastras denote conventional weapons like Bow and Arrow,Mace(Gatha)`,Swords of different type…, Astra denote weapons that are energized by Mantras.

Some of these Astras do not  any supportive conventional weapon like Bow and Arrow.

Mere uttering of the words will do.

Another type is the one used frequently in Indian legends are the Astras that are used with a bow and arrow simultaneously reciting the Mantra ascribed to the Arrow.

These weapons are to be learnt from a Guru.

The Bow, Dhanus and the Arrows are to be worshiped daily.

Only then they will be effective.

Important  fact is that the user must be spiritually inclined and should have attained the status of an effective Sadhaka.

When a Sadhaka meditates and raises his Kundalini (Brahmastra in this context), it derives energy from his base chakra (Mooladhara) and propels upwards.
Then, it penetrates through 5 other chakras deriving energies from each of them at every stage.
Finally it hits the target : Crown Chakra (Sahasrara) and explodes there with a brilliance.
That explosion annihilates all “Illusion(Maaya)“, and leaves the sadhaka with the debris called as “Aham Brahmasmi (I’m Brahma)” feeling.

Otherwise the Astra will not be effective.

It is true that even well-developed Sadhakas turn bad morally, like Ravana.

The Astra will still be effective  because of the spiritual efforts involved in obtaining the Astra.

Brahmastra is an Ultimate weapon.

It is energized by chanting Gayatri Mantra by chanting it in a certain way.

Brahmastra leaves destruction all around, including the environment.

How to chant the Brahmastra Mantra, I have explained in one of my earlier posts .

How the Mantras affect weather, bring rainfall, produce heat, change thoughts in human minds around us, control animals and birds are explained thus,

 

phantam vahnisamayuktam vyoma halasamanvitam |
mesadvayam dantayutam halahalamatah param || 34-5 ||

ghanadyam vayupurvam ca dantayuktamathantimam |
sarasam carksaparyayam bhantam bhrgumatahh param || 34-6 ||

It contains air, fire and cosmic poison, two goat-like fangs, full of poison, weighty, emits air, contains mercury, fiery, sparkling, sky is filled with air, enemy killing greatly radiant and it is projected with three hymn, Gayatri at its centre, it is known as brahmastra”(Ahirbudhnya Samhita of the Pancharatra Agama volume1)

The counter Astra to Brahmastra is  called the BrahmaSirōnāmāstra, which was never used in war, as it had power equivalent to (Brahmāstra),representing 4 heads of Brahma and in Mahabharata war, it was known only to Dronacharya, Aswatthama, Arjuna and Karna.

Rig Yajur Atharva Vedas Hymns Explain Electricity.Text


I have written about the ancient Indian Texts talking on Electricity.

Vedas ,Electricity.Image.jpg
Vedas ,Electricity.

Also how the first two lines of the Purusha Suktha has been used, with the help of Magnets to Produce Electricity.

The Hindu Texts, the Vedas, Rig ,Atharva speak about the nature of electricity.

More texts form other ancient sources speak of Airplanes,Gravity propelled Machines, Anti Matter.

Here I am quoting the relevant texts on electricity.

Chapter 1: Hymn VII
Verse 2: Nav Yo Navati Puro bibhed bahvotjasaa

To keep all the evil forces under control, you, being well-equipped with good means of destruction completely lay down to lasting sleep (death) the evil forces that rob and harass the general public.

 

The atomic energy fissions the ninety-nine elements, covering its path by the bombardments of neutrons without let or hindrance. Desirous of stalking the head, ie. The chief part of the swift power, hidden in the mass of molecular adjustments of the elements, this atomic energy approaches it in the very act of fissioning it by the above-noted bombardment. Herein, verily the scientists know the similar hidden striking force of the rays of the sun working in the orbit of the moon.” (Atharva-veda 20.41.1-3).

Rig Veda.

Rig Veda 1.119.10
“With the help of bipolar forces (Asvins), you should employ telegraphic apparatus made of good conductor of electricity. It is necessary for efficient military operations but should be used with caution.”

Yajur Veda On Electricity.

 

Through astronomy, geography, and geology, go thou to all the different countries of the world under the sun. Mayest thou attain through good preaching to statesmanship and artisanship, through medical science obtain knowledge of all medicinal plants, through hydrostatics learn the different uses of water, through electricity understand the working of ever lustrous lightening. Carry out my instructions willingly.” (Yajur-veda 6.21).

” O royal skilled engineer, construct sea-boats, propelled on water by our experts, and airplanes, moving and flying upward, after the clouds that reside in the mid-region, that fly as the boats move on the sea, that fly high over and below the watery clouds. Be thou, thereby, prosperous in this world created by the Omnipresent God, and flier in both air and lightning.”  (Yajur-veda 10.19).

Hinduism Is Mathematics Fibonacci Golden Ratio In Meru


Philosophical enquiry needs an  analytic  Mathematical Mind.

One would notice that most of the Great Philosophers of the world have also been great Mathematicians.

Rene Descartes, Leibniz,Spinoza,Siddhas of India,Pingala, Arya Bhatta, Varaha Mihira….

It is easy for a Mathematician to understand Nature which is mathematically constructed.

Every atom to an elephant is made mathematically.

There is Uniformity and Rhythm in Nature.

This applies to actions and reactions.

The term Rta is dealt separately in Hinduism.

This means order.

Please read my post on this.

Another point in Hinduism is what is in Macrocosm is in Microcosm and vice versa.

What is found in the Universe is found in Man.

For example,

The ratio 1:1.618 is a golden ratio which is found all over the cosmos. Stick out your forefinger. The ratio from the first two bones is 1:1.618. Now the ratio between the 2nd middle bone and the third bone terminating at the knuckle is also 1:1.618.  The ration from your navel to top of your head and bottom of your feet is also 1:1.618

This is called the Fibonacci Ratio.

Fibonacci Ratio in Leaves

Arrangements of the leaves

Fibonacci Ration in Leaves.Image.jpg
Fibonacci Ration in Leaves.

Also, many plants show the Fibonacci numbers in the arrangements of the leaves around their stems. If we look down on a plant, the leaves are often arranged so that leaves above do not hide leaves below. This means that each gets a good share of the sunlight and catches the most rain to channel down to the roots as it runs down the leaf to the stem.
The computer generated ray-traced picture here is created by my brother, Brian.

Leaves per turn

The Fibonacci numbers occur when counting both the number of times we go around the stem, going from leaf to leaf, as well as counting the leaves we meet until we encounter a leaf directly above the starting one.

If we count in the other direction, we get a different number of turns for the same number of leaves.

The number of turns in each direction and the number of leaves met are three consecutive Fibonacci numbers!

Fibonacci Number in Mount Meru

 

Mount Meru is an actual and sacred mountain in Tanzania/Arctic, it is also the name given to the Fibonacci series in the Maatraameru (Mountain of Cadence) written by Pingala in the Chhandah-shastra (Art of Prosody) around 450 BC. In this writing, it was organized as a pyramid, today known as Pascal’s triangle, like this:

Mount Meru In Numbers.photot.jpg
Mount Meru In Numbers

Kubera was revered as the chief of the Guhyakas and was the ‘king of kings’, the ‘god’ and ‘guardian of the North’. The word Guhyakas comes from the word ‘godha’ (root gudh or guh), meaning chameleon – a dragon-serpent. It seems that in Hindu mythology, ‘god’ is a ‘naga’ or ‘dragon serpent’ who lives at the top of Mount Meru and hides a golden treasure.

Thus we find that God is associated in ancient Hindu mythology with the infinite and irrational golden ratio at the center of a Fibonacci spiral symbolized as a mountain, pyramid or perhaps an infinite spiraling vortex (like the Hindu Schwass-tika). Further reading on the subject describes Mt. Meru as home to all of the gods, closely resembling the Biblical concept of a heaven paved with gold.

As one last note, in Vedic astrology, Kubera’s golden treasure is guarded by Shukra, which is the Hindu name for the planet Venus. Shukra is then celebrated in a specific month in the Hindu calendar called JyeshTha, corresponding to May-June.

One would find he same in Carnatic Music and Bharata Natya.

More to follow.

Hayagreeva ‘City Of Gods’ In Puerta de Hayu Peru


I have written about the Peruvian connection to Sanatana Dharma.

The Nazca lines resemble Shiva’s Trident and Sugreeva refers to it when he directed his Vanara Sena to search for Sita in Peru.

Now to Vishnu connection.

Puerta de Hayu Marca doorway, Gate of the Gods found in Peru.image.jpg
Puerta de Hayu Marca doorway, Gate of the Gods found in Peru

‘Huge mysterious door-like structure in the Hayu Marca mountain region of Southern Peru near Lake Titicaca,an hour drive from the city of Puno, has long been revered by local native indians as the “City of the Gods.”
Puerta de Hayu Marka Doorway (Gate of the Gods) is regarded as the Doorway of the Heavens (Amaru Meru or Aramu Muru).

Hayagreeva returns Vedas to Brahma.Image.jpg
Hayagreeva returns Vedas to Brahma.

‘the door or the “Puerta de Hayu Marca” (Gate of the Gods) has been, at some time in the distant past, carved out of a natural rock face and in all, measures exactly 23′ in height and width, with a smaller alcove in the center at the base which measures in at just under 6′ in height.

The native Indians of the region had a legend that spoke of “a gateway to the lands of the Gods”, and in that legend, it was said that in times long past great heroes had gone to join their gods, and passed through the gate for a glorious new life of immortality, and on rare occasions those men returned for a short time with their gods to “inspect all the lands in the kingdom” through the gate.

Another legend tells of the time when the Spanish Conquistadors arrived in Peru and looted gold and precious stones from the Inca tribes. According to one legend presented in the book, Secret of the Andes by Brother Philip, (as channeled by author/contactee, George Hunt Williamson, “Road in the Sky” — Markawasi), one Incan priest of the Temple of the Seven Rays named Amaru Meru (Lord Meru, Aramu Muru) fled from his temple with a sacred golden disk known as “the key of the gods of the seven rays”, and hid in the mountains of Hayu Marca. He eventually came upon the doorway which was being watched by shamen priests. He showed them the key of the gods and a ritual was performed with the conclusion of a magical occurrence initiated by the golden disk which opened the portal, and according to the legend blue light did emanate from a tunnel inside. The priest Amaru Meru handed the golden disk to the shamen and then passed through the portal “never to be seen again”. Archeologists have observed a small hand sized circular depression on the right hand side of the small entranceway, and have theorized that this is where a small disk could be placed and held by the rock.

According to some individuals who have lain their hands on the small door, a feeling of energy flowing has been commented on as well as strange experiences such as visions of stars, columns of fire, and the sounds of unusual rhythmic music. Others have said that they have perceived tunnels on the interior of the structure, although nobody as yet has found a gap that would illustrate the door opening. On the contrary the professional opinion is that there is no actual door, for the frame and the entrance-way and the back of the alcove are all carved from the same rock.

Hinduism reference.

In sanskrit, Haya is Horse and Vishnu Purana mentions about an form of Vishnu, which was horse-headed.
According to puranas, Hayagreeva (Haya = Horse, Greeva = Neck) was a demon who was son of Kaśyapa Prajāpati.
He gets a boon from the Goddess Durga that he can only be killed by another “Hayagreeva“.

Devas (Amaras) approached Lord Vishnu to kill this demon but despite a long struggle he was also unable to kill Hayagreeva.

Tired and drained after the battle, Vishnu proceeded to Vaikuntha to rejuvenate and meditate in padamāsana with his head supported by the upper end of his taut bow. The Devas once again approached Vishnu for help against Hayagrīva but were unable to rouse him from his meditation. The Devas asked a swarm of termites to assist in waking Vishnu by gnawing away the string of the bow upon which he was resting. However, the snapping of the bow-string produced such a resonant sound that the universe trembled, and the broken string lashed out with such force that Vishnu’s head was severed from his body.
Goddess Durga revealed to Devas of her boon to Hayagreeva and asked them to attach the head of a horse to Vishnu so that he in the guise of “Hayagreeva” could kill his foe.
With head of a White Horse, Vishnu was able to kill the demon.

Another legend has it that during the creation, the demons Madhu-Kaitabha stole the Vedas from Brahma, and Vishnu then took the Hayagreeva form to recover them.
The two bodies of Madhu and Kaitabha disintegrated into twelve pieces (two heads, two torsos, four arms and four legs). These are considered to represent the twelve seismic plates of the Earth. Yet another legend has it that during the creation, Vishnu compiled the Vedas in the Hayagreeva form.

Ramayana Reference.

Ramayana’s Kishkinda Kanda mentions Vanara King Sugreeva talking about crossing Pacific Ocean and landing in South America’s Peru.

tatra tat kopajam tejaH kR^itam hayamukham mahat || 4-40-48
asya aahuH tan mahaavegam odanam sa caraacaram |

Translation : There exists a fantastically refulgent Fire in the form of Horse’s Face that originated from the anger of Sage Aurasa. The victuals to that Fire is said to be that highly speedy waves of the ocean, together with all of the mobile and sessile beings of the world at the close of each Era.

Aurasa derives from the word uuru, meaning ‘thigh.‘ His mother hid him under her thigh when some kings came to kill, and that is how he got this name. Later, with vengeance this sage started to burn the world with his yogic fire, but his manes came to him to pacify and asked him to release his yogic fire in oceanic water.
When he did so, that fire remained underwater, ready to emerge from a cavity like that of a she-horse’s mouth, from beneath the ocean from the South Pole. This fire is called vaDaba agni, orbaDaba anala , referred here as Horse’s Face. At the time of yuga anta, End of Era, that fire emerges out, and the whole creation, with all its sessile and mobile beings, becomes its fuel. This episode is detailed in aadi parva , First Canto, Maha Bharata.

tatra vikroshataam naado bhuutaanaam saagara okasaam |
shruuyate ca asamarthaanaam dR^iSTvaa tat vaDavaa mukham || 4-40-49

Transaltion : There the high squealing sounds of oceanic beings dwelling undersea are audible, and although they are capable ones, they are incapacitated on feeling Fire from the Horse Mouth as such they yell.

So, Technically, Vishnu must have subsided this demon like fire emitting in Horse shape around ‘Ring of Fire‘ and saved creation or helped Brahma in recreation and also restored Vedas from getting destroyed.

Peruvian prophecy states that all the Americas were once united by a common spiritual tradition and leader, and that they will be again. They were anciently united as Amaru-ca or Ameru-ca, Ameri-ca, meaning the “Land of the Serpent” (Ananta Sesha forms the Ring of Fire around North & South American continents), during a time when the serpent was the universal symbol of mystical wisdom and spiritual power.
One legend states that North and South America were named after a culture bearer known historically as Aramu Muru or A maru (serpent/wisdom) the “Serpent (wisdom master) Meru,” with connections to the mythical Mount Meru, abode of the Demi-Gods.

Infact, Ameru is A-Meru (anti-meru or opposite of meru mountain).

Tamils Ancestors Of Chinese,Shiva Chief God


I have written that the Chinese are reported to have descended from the son of Pururava.

Shiva Linga, Ganesha Worship in China.Image.jpg
Shiva Linga, Ganesha Worship in China.

Mahabharata refers to this.

The word/race of Chins as rulers of eastern and northern kingdoms is mentioned in Mahabharata too (composed around 3100 BCE).
Cinas of yellow color, are said to ‘look like a forest of Karnikaras”.
In the Arthashashtra of Chanakya, China is mentioned as well. It is theorized that the name China is based upon the name of the kingdom, Ch’in, which was established by Shih Huang Ti in year 221 BC.
However, the name China comes from an ancient Sanskrit name for “the regions to the East”.
The Chin Indians did not only name a great country but also created the Chinese nation.

Regardless of the origins of the Chinese, the evidence reveals that ancient Chinese culture was Vedic in nature.’

Chinese origins may be traced to two tribes .

One from Kashmir.

And another is from South India,what is now called as Tamil Nadu.

Shiva Nandi Carving in China.Image.jpg
Shiva Nandi Carving in China.

The original Chin race of India dwelling in Kashmir, and several parts of South India colonized Shensi, a province of Central China and subsequently subjugated all other petty kingdoms and thus became the emperors of perhaps the one of the largest empires of the world.
The name China and the Chinese were after the Chins of India and hence the scholars are unanimous about the Indian origin of the name of China.

A Chinese source states that in 720 AD the Pallava King Narasimhavarman II constructed a temple (in Tamil Nadu, India) on account of the empire of China, and another text cites the existence of three Hindu temples in southern China where ‘Brahmans’ resided during the 8th century.

Shiva Carving in Quanzhou .Image.jpg
Shiva Carving in Quanzhou .

The temple in Quanzhou is now in ruins, but over 300 carvings are still within the city.
Many are currently on display in the Quanzhou museum, and some have become a part of Buddhist temple—Kaiyuan Temple.Behind its main hall “Mahavira Hall”, there are some columns decorated by some Hinduism carvings. The carvings are dispersed across five primary sites in Quanzhou and the neighboring areas.
They were made in the South Indian style, and share close similarities with 13th-century temples constructed in the Kaveri Delta region in Tamil Nadu.
Nearly all the carvings were carved with greenish-gray granite, which was widely available in the nearby hills and used in the region’s local architecture.
Poorly written/formatted tamil wordings on these carvings prove that those were done by a non-native tamilian in China.

“First, I would like to make it clear that the probable language of the Kushana was Tamil. According to Dravidian literature, the Kushana were called Kosars=Yakshas=Yueh chih/ Kushana. This literature maintains that when they entered India they either already spoke Tamil, or adopted the language upon settlement in India.

The Kushana and the Yueh chih were one and the same. In addition to
North Indian documents the Kushana-Yueh chih association are also
discussed in Dravidian literature. V Kanakasabhai, The Tamils Eighteen
hundred years ago, note that in the Sanskrit literature the Yueh chih were called Yakshas, Pali chroniclers called them Yakkos and Kosars< Kushana.”

They allegedely arrived in India during the 2nd century BC. He makes it clear that the Yueh chih/ Kushana as noted on their coins worshipped Siva as seen on the coins of Kanishka. This is why we have a coin of a Kushana king from Taxila, dated to AD 76 that declares that the king was maharaja rajatiraja devaputra Kushana “Great King, King of kings, Son of God, the Kushana”.

Vedic Presence in China.

The Vedic tradition has undoubtedly been best preserved in India yet the universality of Vedic culture is such that none can claim to be the sole inheritors or originators of the Vedic traditions.
These traditions are part of the basic fabric of nature and the universe and can be accessed by anyone anywhere at any time.

The same ‘eternal’ vedic tradition known as Santana Dharma is at the very core of Chinese civilization.
For example, Imperial Tang dynasty (618–907 AD) used the Hindu/Vedic calendar a long side with the Chinese calendar.
Amongst the Gods, the Lord of Death and the Underworld known in Vedas as Yama is called ‘Yanmo Wang’ within the Chinese tradition.

Emperor Xuanzong of the Tang (ruled 712–56) called upon the Indian monk Vajrabodhi (671–741) to perform ‘Tantric’ rites to avert a drought in the year 726 AD.
In the Fujiyan province, in the Xinmen area of Quanzhou, there are the remains of a Siva Temple.
It still has a Siva lingam over five meters tall.
An ancient stone that still stands today; it has been widely identified as a Siva Linga.
Chinese records reveal that it was cut in half in the year 1011 AD and then rebuilt in the 1400s.
Even as late as 1950, childless mothers would go to it to invoke the blessings of the deity for motherhood.

In Hsuan-wu, Lo-yang district there is a pillar with Sanskrit writings from top to bottom and right to left. Besides Buddhism, Saivism was also popular in Yunan as is manifest from the prevalence of the cult of Mahakala there.
This ancient Indian colony in the south of China was a strong link in the Sino-Indian cultural relationship.

Shiva Temple may have already been in existence, which is highly likely, and it is only the Deity of Lord Shiva that was new.
Shiva temple had originally been built in 685 AD during the Tang Dynasty but was rebuilt by the Tamil Hindu community in the city in the late 13th century who dedicated it to Lord Siva.
There is direct evidence of that there were indeed Hindu temples in China as early as the 6th century AD.

Natural Sphinx In India Phantom Rock Edakkal Cave


Most of are unaware of what our Culture ,History and our country.

One instance is  we have a Sphinx like formation in Phantom Rock, near Edakkal Kerala.

At Edakkal we have cave writings dated between 12000 to 9000 BC.

Phantom Rock, Kerala.Image.jpg
Phantom Rock, Kerala.

Phantom rock is a skull shaped rock, which has an eerie similarity to the face of Phantom. In the local area it is popularly known as Cheengeri Mala.

Edakkal Cave writing.Petroglyphs dating back to about 6000 BC. “Waynad”. Licensed under Public Domain via Wikipedia – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Waynad.jpg#/media/File:Waynad.jpg

Edakkal Caves (11°37′28.81″N 76°14′8.88″ECoordinates: 11°37′28.81″N 76°14′8.88″E) are two natural caves at a remote location at Edakkal, 25 km from Kalpetta in theWayanad district of Kerala in India’s Western Ghats. They lie 1,200 metres above sea level on Ambukutty Mala, beside an ancient trade route connecting the high mountains of Mysore to the ports of the Malabar coast. Inside the caves are pictorial writings believed to date to at least 6,000 BC, from the Neolithic man, indicating the presence of a prehistoric civilization or settlement in this region. The Stone Age carvings of Edakkal are rare and are the only known examples from south India.(wiki)

 

 

The caves contain drawings that range over periods from as early as 5000 BC to 1000 BC. The youngest group of paintings have been in the news for a possible connection to the Indus Valley Civilization.

Historian M.R. Raghava Varier of the Kerala state archaeology department identified a sign “a man with jar cup” that is the most distinct motif of the Indus valley civilization.The finding, made in September 2009, indicates that the Harappan civilization was active in the region. The “a man with jar cup” symbol from Edakkal seems to be more similar to the Indus motif than those already known from Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Mr. Varier said “The discovery of the symbols are akin to that of the Harappan civilisation having predominantly Dravidian culture and testimony to the fact that cultural diffusion could take place. It is wrong to presume that the Indus culture disappeared into thin air.” Iravatham Mahadevan, a scholar of Indus valley and Brahmi scripts said the findings were very significant called it a “major discovery”.

Upanayana, Navjote For Zoroastrians Zend Avesta Veda Connection


Iran was  apart of Hindu Empire during the Vedic Period.

This continued to be so till Vikramaditya’s period.

A treaty signed by the Hittites and Mitannis dating to the fourteenth century BC calls upon Indara/Indra, Mitras(il)/Mitra, Nasatianna/Nasatya and Uruvanass(il)/Varuna, all known to Rig-Veda and Avesta.

Hittites and Mitannis were from North Syria.

I had posted articles about the Vedic /Tamil origin of these people.

Though there are similarities  the roles of the Devas seem to have been reversed.

(haoma (soma), daha(dasa), hepta (sapta), hindu (sindhu), and Ahura (Asura) in Avesta)

Indra and the devas  are demonic in Avesta,and Ahura/asura is considered the highest deity.

“At the time of composition of the Vedas, Varuna was losing his importance to Indra. In Avesta, Ahura Mazda  is the main divinity and some people think that he is thesame as Varuna. Varuna sat with his spies who flew all around the world and bought back reports on the conduct of mortals. He abhorred sin and loathed evil deeds prompted by anger, drink and gambling.”

Probably a sect left on this issue and had a role in this difference.

Rig Veda is dated around 5000 BC while Avesta is dated around 1000 BC.

The Chief God worshiped in the Vedas is Agni,Fire.

Zoroastrians are Fire worshipers.

Another important connection is Upanayana ceremony which is the primary duty of a Hindu.

Zoroastrians have a similar Ceremony  ‘Navjote’

‘The Navjote[pronunciation?] (Persian: سدره‌پوشی, Sedreh pushi‎) ceremony is the ritual through which an individual is inducted into theZoroastrian religion and begins to wear the Sedreh and Kushti. The term navjote is used primarily by the Zoroastrians of India (theParsis), while sedreh pushi is used primarily by the Zoroastrians of Iran. Zoroastrians from Pakistan consisting of both Parsis andIranis use both terms…

Although there is no upper limit to the age of the individual for which the ceremony takes place, in common practice it occurs before a girl or boy reaches maturity. Under no circumstances is it permitted to be done for a child less than seven years of age since the child at that age range cannot comprehend the significance of the event.

In Vendidad 18.54, individuals above the age of 15 (once considered the age at which one attained adulthood) who are not yet been invested are said to be likely to fall into evil ways. In the 9th-12th century texts of Zoroastrian tradition, the same group are said to bekushad davarashni, literally “running about improperly clothed”. So for instance Menog-i Khrad 2.35 and the Book of Arda Viraf(25.6.10). The latter considers such a thing to be a service to demons (the daevas). Other texts of tradition that define adulthood as the boundary include the Sad-dar 10.1 and Shayast na-Shayast 10.13. ,.

The ceremony is traditionally the first time a Zoroastrian wears the sedreh undershirt and kushti belt, which they then continue to wear for the rest of their life. The sacred clothing signifies parental responsibility as well as responsibility for the one who is undergoing this ceremony. When the child wears the sacred clothes, it means the parents are now obligated to morally and religiously educate the child. If the child commits a wrongful act, it is their responsibility, as they may also take some pride in themselves when their child commits a righteous act. The sacred thread and shirt also teach the child responsibility, as they are to be untied before certain practices, such as prayer, bathing, and before meals, and re-tied shortly after the task is completed.

The shirt has a construction extremely specific to this culture.

Upanayana of Hinduism.

Upanayana is an important Samskara, duty of a Hindu.

The three Varnas, Brahmana, Kshatriya and Vaisya must have this performed.

Read my posts on Samskaras.

The wearing of the sacred thread opens the inner eye.

One becomes a Dwija, born for the second time.

The Upaveeda must remain clean.

It has to be changed periodically.

It is also changed for special occasions like Marriages,Homas,Poojas,Apara Kriyas.(https://ramanan50.wordpress.com/2014/10/17/yagnopaveeda-dharana-mantra-poonal/)

Zoroastrianism.

Zoroastrianism was founded by the Prophet Zoroaster (or Zarathustra) in ancient Iran. The precise date of the founding of Zoroastrianism is uncertain. An approximate date of 1500–1200 BCE has been established through archaeological evidence and linguistic comparisons with the Hindu text Rig Veda. However there is no way of knowing exactly when Zoroaster lived, as he lived in what, to his people, were prehistoric times. Depending on different approaches, it is thought that he lived some time between 1700 BCE to 500 BCE .Zoroaster was born in either Northeast Iran or Southwest Afghanistan. He was born into a Bronze Age culture with a polytheistic religion, which included animal sacrifice and the ritual use of intoxicants. This religion was quite similar to the early forms of Hinduism in India. The name Zoroaster is a Greek rendering of the nameZarathustra. He is known as Zartosht and Zardosht in Persian and Zaratosht in Gujarati. Zoroaster’s birth and early life are little documented. What is known is recorded in theGathas—the core of the Avesta, which contains hymns thought to be composed by Zoroaster himself. Born into the Spitama clan, he worked as a priest. He had a wife, three sons, and three daughters. Zoroaster rejected the religion of the Bronze Age Iranians, with their many gods and oppressive class structure, in which the Karvis and Karapans(princes and priests) controlled the ordinary people. He also opposed animal sacrifices and the use of the hallucinogenic Haoma plant (possibly a species of ephedra) in rituals, but held the rooster as a “symbol of light”and associated the cock with “good against evil” because of his heraldic actions..

* Cock is associted with Sunbrahmanya.

According to Zoroastrian belief, when Zoroaster was 30 years old, he went into the Daiti river to draw water for a Haoma ceremony; when he emerged, he received a vision ofVohu Manah. After this, Vohu Manah took him to the other six Amesha Spentas, where he received the completion of his vision.[51] This vision radically transformed his view of the world, and he tried to teach this view to others. Zoroaster believed in one creator God, teaching that only one God was worthy of worship. Furthermore, some of the deities of the old religion, the Daevas (Devas in Sanskrit), appeared to delight in war and strife. Zoroaster said that these were evil spirits and were workers of Angra Mainyu, God’s adversary.

Zoroaster’s ideas did not take off quickly, and, at first, he only had one convert: his cousin Maidhyoimanha.The local religious authorities opposed his ideas. They felt their own faiths, power, and particularly their rituals, were threatened because Zoroaster taught against over-ritualising religious ceremonies. Many ordinary people did not like Zoroaster’s downgrading of the Daevas to evil spirits. After 12 years, Zoroaster left his home to find somewhere more open to new ideas. He found such a place in the country of King Vishtaspa (in Bactria). The King and his queen, Hutosa, heard Zoroaster debating with the religious leaders of his land, and decided to accept Zoroaster’s ideas and make them the official religion of their kingdom. Zoroaster died in his late 70s. Very little is known of the time between Zoroaster and the Achaemenian period, except that, during this period, Zoroastrianism spread to Western Iran. By the time of the founding of the Achaemenid Empire, Zoroastrianism was already a well-established religion.

Humata, Hukhta, Huvarshta (Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds) are the basic tenets of the religion.

Faravahar (or Ferohar), one of the primary symbols of Zoroastrianism, believed to be the depiction of aFravashi (guardian spirit)

In Zoroastrianism, Ahura Mazda is the beginning and the end, the creator of everything that can and cannot be seen, the Eternal, the Pure and the only Truth. In the Gathas, the most sacred texts of Zoroastrianism thought to have been composed by Zoroaster himself, the prophet acknowledged devotion to no other divinity besides Ahura Mazda.

Daena (din in modern Persian) is the eternal Law, whose order was revealed to humanity through the Mathra-Spenta (“Holy Words”).Daena has been used to mean religion, faith, law, and even as a translation for the Hindu and Buddhist term Dharma. The latter is often interpreted as “duty” but can also mean social order, right conduct, or virtue. The metaphor of the “path” of Daena is represented in Zoroastrianism by the muslin undershirt Sudra, the “Good/Holy Path”, and the 72-thread Kushti girdle, the “Pathfinder”.

Daena should not be confused with the fundamental principle asha (Vedic rta), the equitable law of the universe, which governed the life of the ancient Indo-Iranians. For these, asha was the course of everything observable—the motion of the planets and astral bodies; the progression of the seasons; and the pattern of daily nomadic herdsman life, governed by regular metronomic events such as sunrise and sunset. All physical creation (geti) was thus determined to run according to a master plan—inherent to Ahura Mazda—and violations of the order (druj) were violations against creation, and thus violations against Ahura Mazda. This concept of asha versus the druj should not be confused with the good-versus-evil battle evident in western religions, for although both forms of opposition express moral conflict, the asha versus druj concept is more systemic and less personal, representing, for instance, chaos (that opposes order); or “uncreation”, evident as natural decay (that opposes creation); or more simply “the lie” (that opposes truth and righteousness). Moreover, in his role as the one uncreated creator of all, Ahura Mazda is not the creator of druj, which is “nothing”, anti-creation, and thus (likewise) uncreated. Thus, in Zoroaster’s revelation, Ahura Mazda was perceived to be the creator of only the good (Yasna 31.4), the “supreme benevolent providence” (Yasna 43.11), that will ultimately triumph (Yasna 48.1).

A Parsi Wedding, 1905

In this schema of asha versus druj, mortal beings (both humans and animals) play a critical role, for they too are created. Here, in their lives, they are active participants in the conflict, and it is their duty to defend order, which would decay without counteraction. Throughout the Gathas, Zoroaster emphasizes deeds and actions, and accordingly asceticism is frowned upon in Zoroastrianism. In later Zoroastrianism, this was explained as fleeing from the experiences of life, which was the very purpose that the urvan (most commonly translated as the “soul”) was sent into the mortal world to collect. The avoidance of any aspect of life, which includes the avoidance of the pleasures of life, is a shirking of the responsibility and duty to oneself, one’s urvan, and one’s family and social obligations.

Central to Zoroastrianism is the emphasis on moral choice, to choose the responsibility and duty for which one is in the mortal world, or to give up this duty and so facilitate the work of druj. Similarly, predestination is rejected in Zoroastrian teaching. Humans bear responsibility for all situations they are in, and in the way they act toward one another. Reward, punishment, happiness, and grief all depend on how individuals live their lives.

Rakshasas Of India Patala US Giants Found?


I had written articles on the Patala mentioned in the Hindu Puranas refer to Latin and ,Central and North Americas and indicated the Sanskrit,Sanatana Dharma and Tamil connection to these places.

Giant's Remains washed ashore during Tsunami.jpg

Scroll down for Video.

The presence of Giants in the past is a part of almost all cultures.

In the Hindu Puranas there are repeated mentions of these Giants.

The Ramayana has Kumbhakana, brother of Ravana is described as a Giant.

Ravana called upon his Moola Sainya  in the Patala for a final go at Rama.

Kara and Dhusuana were Giants.

Bhima, his son Gatohkaja of Mahabharata were Giants.

The curious fact is that these Giants lived side by side with ordinary Men.

Except Bhima, almost all the Giants described were reported to have lived in the Patala Loka.

If some one wanted to hide they went to Patala as in the case of Jayathratha, when he heard Arjuna had vowed to kill him before sunset , as a revenge for Jayathratha’s merciless killing of Abhimanyu, the son of Arjuna.

Now there are reports from around the world that skeletons of  Giants have been found.

‘There was gas exploration conducted in the south-east region of the Arabian deserts. It uncovered the skeletal remains of a human of phenomenal size. This skeleton was discovered in the Rab-Ul-Khelee region. It stated in the Quran that God created people of phenomenal size which he had never created before. They were the people of Aad. These people were given a lot of powers, but they started misusing the powers. They turned against God and his prophet and often intervened the path of God. So God destroyed them. Ulemas in Saudi Arabia believe that the remains belong to these mythical people of Aad. Though the Saudi military had secured the place but some photographs leaked out.

 

Another gigantic skeleton was found in India by an exploration team. In the Indian mythology it is mentioned that Brahma created people of phenomenal size which he had never created before. These men were tall, powerful and very big. They could put their arms around the trunk of large trees and uproot them. They were created to bring order to Earth and stop people from fighting each other. Bhima who is mentioned in the Indian epic Mahabharata was one of the God sons of Brahma and had similar powers. The skeletons unearthed bear resemblance to such descriptions. They are large beyond recognition.

Another incident during the 2004 tsunami that effected India and Sri Lanka adversely. There was a giant skeleton washed ashore by the tides. It was one of the largest ever seen skeletons. Closer inspection of the skeletons revealed that each one of these were thousands of years old and some even dated back to the prehistoric ages. It seems that giants did in fact stroll on this Earth and all the myths were not fictitious.”

* These statements are stated to be Hoaxes, but curiously nobody has explained why they are called hoaxes!

Some more evidence is found in the US and Peru.

This is yet to be contradicted.

 

‘Nephilim’s Graveyard of the Kings near the Newark, Ohio Earthworks

Located in a small town, north of Newark, Ohio have been found gigantic human remains in all of the burial mounds.  In one of the mounds a megalithic bee-hive tomb with a keystone at the top was uncovered.

The Hindu Puranas were not imaging things at all.

Why Om Shanti Chanted Thrice


You would have noticed that at the end of every Mantra, Pooja and at temples Om Shanti Mantra Om Shanti is chanted thrice.

Om Shanti means May There Be Peace.

Shanti Mantra.Image.jpg
Shanti Mantra.

One witnesses disturbances in the world and in one’s Mind body.

Some are due to factors within one’s control and some beyond one.

It is the Hindus way of pacifying these my chanting and thereby attempting to appease  them.

Disturbances/Calamities come from,

Through one’s body,

Through the forces of Nature and

due to past actions and the Will of God.(Stains on the soul as Jains put it)

These three are classified as.

Adi Bhautikam.

Adi Daivikam and

Adiathmikam.

Adhi-daivikam literally means “mental disturbances that come from God”—i.e. things that are utterly beyond our control: hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, floods, tsunamis, etc. We have no control over these types of disturbances. So when we say the first shanti, we are praying, “O God, may we be protected from these obstacles that are beyond our control.”

Adhi-bhautikam literally means “disturbances that come from the world.” That means anything stemming from the world around us—mosquitoes, noisy neighbors, barking dogs, the phone ringing, family arguments. As opposed to the first category, we have some control over this second category of disturbances. We can use mosquito repellent, we can call the police on our neighbors, we can turn off the phone, we can leave the place altogether, etc. So this shanti means, “O God, may we be protected from the people and surroundings.”

The third type of disturbance is the most powerful and, at the same time, the only one over which we have total control. Adhyatmikam means “disturbances stemming from the self.” For one who is still identified with the ego, the people, places and things of this world stimulate one of two reactions in the mind—attachment or aversion. Whether we physical see someone we consider our enemy as we walk down the street or remember him during meditation, the mental turbulence that results is the same. Lust, jealousy, anger, sorrow, hatred destroy our peace’

Shanti Mantras are to be chanted and the Vedas have a separate section for Shanti Mantras.

ॐ सह नाववतु।

सह नौ भुनक्तु।

सह वीर्यं करवावहै।

तेजस्वि नावधीतमस्तु

मा विद्विषावहै।

ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

Om, May we all be protected

May we all be nourished

May we work together with great energy

May our intelect be sharpened (may our study be effective)

Let there be no Animosity amongst us

Om, peace (in me), peace (in nature), peace (in divine forces)

Oṁ Saha nāvavatu Om=supreme god; saha=together; nau=both/ all; avatu=may he protect
saha nau bhunaktu saha=together; nau=both/ all;bhunaktu= be nourished/ energized
Saha vīryam karavāvahai saha=together;vīryam=energy; karavāvahai=work (kara=hand; avahai=bring into use)
Tejasvi nāvadhītamastu tejaswi = having great energy;nau = both ; adhi = intellect/ study; tama = higher degree; astu=so be it
Mā vidviṣāvahai =not be; vidvis=animosity; avahai=bring/ have
Oṁ Shāntiḥ, Shāntiḥ, Shāntiḥ shantih= peace

Choultries Free Food And Rest Rooms Of India


Many have been asking me why I have been writing about Hinduism, especially about its spread throughout the world;its scientific approach;its greatness in Religious Tolerance;its closeness to Hindu way of Life;the astounding temples and the unbelievable architecture and its Advanced concepts.

Choultry, Free Boarding and Lodging.Image.jpg
Sri Sringeri Peetha Paripalitha Vadlamannati Vari Satram, Arjun Street, Mallikarjunapeta, Vijayawada-1, Krishna District, Andhra Pradesh.

The reason is,over a period of time, I shall be writing why this way of life is great, that is the enviable ,selfless service to Humanity and its Universal Human values, apart from easy, practical Spiritual Truth.

Hinduism knows how to prioritize  Human issues.

There is no point in teaching Spirituality to Empty stomachs.

  • Ahimsa (non-violence) – based on the concepts of atman and reincarnation.
  • Mind and sense control – considered essential for any form of morality.
  • Tolerance – necessary in order to deal with inconveniences in the performance of one’s dharma.
  • Hospitality – demonstrating magnanimity, and the value of service (seva).
  • Compassion – based on notions of atman, and the ability to feel for others as we feel for ourselves.
  • Protection – an essential duty is to give shelter to others, especially those less fortunate.
  • Respect – for all living beings and for the sanctity of all life.
  • Wisdom – knowledge is contrasted with ignorance, the Hindu equivalent of the “good -evil” paradigm.
  • Austerity – essential to gain wisdom in addition to mere theoretical knowledge.
  • Celibacy – important for spiritual life. Only one of the four ashrams is permitted sexual gratification.
  • Honesty – essential to build legitimate trust within relationships and to avoid self-deception.
  • Cleanliness – includes external hygiene and inner purity; essential for brahmanas.

Of these the actions one can perform for the others starts with Food and Water.

The basic need of Humans, Food and water has to be met.

The Sikshavalli of the Taittriya Upanishad, the portion that deals with the Injunction of the Teacher to the students, begins with,

Anana Nindhyaath That Vrutham,

Annam Bahukurveetha

Never insult Food,Let that Be your Vow,

For of it Beings Thrive.

The Upanishad also adds later, while describing who should be treated as God as

Matru Devo Bhava, Mother is God,

Pitry Devo Bhava, Fathr is God,

Acharya Devo Bhava, Preceptor is God and

Athithi Devo Bhava, Guest is God.

Earlier Hindus, the common Man and the Kings took this advice to heart seriously .

They fed the guests.

Not only Human Beings.

They provide water receptacles for animals, especially for Cattle.

Every village had a special Water tank for animal to drink water from.

Even to-day households, especially in the South, provide a mouthful of food in their Plates before they start eating and leave it for the dogs to eat .

Kings built Huge Free Kitchens for the People to be fed, not only for the Travelers but for the poor as well.

Temples cooked vast quantities of food , offer them as Naivedya to God and distribute among the people.

Not only this.

These places, Called Choultries , free boarding and lodging facilities for travelers were built by the Kings.

Most of them are located near the temples.

One can stay there free of cost and take food.

Next to the Kings, businessmen and traders contributed to this effort by donations and many built Choultries of their own.

Talk of Social Commitment today!

Most of these people remained anonymous!

Community based Choultries were also built by them.

Notably the Nattukottai Chettiars, a Trading Community of Tamil Nadu have built innumerable Choultries  throughout India.

North Indian Communities, Marwaris, Gujarati have also built Choultries.

This practice is not unique to Hinduism.

Jains and Buddhists have also built  them.

Such is the value based system of India of the past.

Today what is proscribed in the Smriti is being done,

Selling Food and Medicine!

These two along with Education is be offered free of Cost.

Accepting Money for these services was considered a Sin.

Some Choultries of India.

Sanskrit Documents On Interstellar Spaceships Found in Lhasa


The vital difference in acquiring Knowledge between India and the West lies in the fact that while Knowledge is  a Positive Concept in the West, it is Negative Concept in India.

Anti Gravity Interstellar Ships of Ancient India.Image.jpg
Anti Gravity Interstellar Ships of Ancient India.

knowledge, in its fundamental form Awareness, is, not acquisition of some thing new and external to us,but the removal of Ignorance,Misconceptions Avidya.

Once the false notions are removed Real knowledge shines forth.

Buddhism and Jainism state the same Truth but there are minor Philosophical differences on this with Hinduism.

Pure Knowledge is Pure Consciousness, Chit.

Please read my Post Vedas on Consciousness.

There are many methods of obtaining this Knowledge.

Patanjali follows the Raja Yoga  in his Yoga Sutras.

He describes the process of obtaining this Knowledge in the first Yoga Sutra.

‘Yoga:Chitta Vruththi Nirodhithaha’

Yoga(Union with Reality) is Cessation of Modification of Chitta.

For detailed explanation please read my post on this.

On successful completion of the Yoga procedures, or even during the process one shall gain some special powers.

These are eight in number.

  • Aṇimā: reducing one’s body even to the size of an atom
  • Mahima: expanding one’s body to an infinitely large size
  • Garima: becoming infinitely heavy
  • Laghima: becoming almost weightless
  • Prāpti: having unrestricted access to all place
  • Prākāmya: realizing whatever one desires
  • Iṣṭva: possessing absolute lordship
  • Vaśtva: the power to subjugate all

Of this Laghima is the power to defy Gravity.

As Reality is One and as are the Reality, the realized Ones, can alter the perceived objects and bend them to their Will.

They can regroup the atomic composition of Matter.

They can make things lighter than air, make things move in a Vacuum.

All these were documented bu Yogis and Siddhas in their works in the form of Sutras.

There was a group of Nine Unknown Men during the period of  Emperor Ashoka, who were the guardians of these.

They were the Illuminati of India.

Please read my Post on this.

Such a Manuscript was found in Lhasa, Tibet by the Chinese.

Read the following.

‘The “Nine Unknown Men” wrote a total of nine books, presumably one each. Book number was “The Secrets of Gravitation!” This book, known to historians, but not actually seen by them dealt chiefly with “gravity control.”

It is presumably still around somewhere, kept in a secret library in India, Tibet or elsewhere (perhaps even in North America somewhere). One can certainly undertand Ashoka’s reasoning for wanting to keep such knowledge a secret, assuming it exists, if the Nazis had such weapons at their disposal during World War II. Ashoka was also aware devastating wars using such advanced vehicles and other ‘futuristic weapons’ that had destroyed the ancient Indian “Rama Empire” several thousand years before.

Only a few years ago, the Chinese discovered some sanskrit documents in Lhasa, Tibet and sent them to the University of Chandrigarh to be translated. Dr. Ruth Reyna of the University said recently that the documents contain directions for building interstellar spaceships!

Flying Machines

Their method of propulsion, she said, was “anti-gravitational” and was based upon a system analogous to that of “laghima,” the unknown power of the ego existing in man’s physiological makeup, “a centrifugal force strong enough to counteract all gravitational pull.” According to Hindu Yogis, it is this “laghima” which enables a person to levitate.

Dr. Reyna said that on board these machines, which were called “Astras” by the text, the ancient Indians could have sent a detachment of men onto any planet, according to the document, which is thought to be thousands of years old.

The manuscripts were also said to reveal the secret of “antima”; “the cap of invisibility” and “garima”; “how to become as heavy as a mountain of lead.”

Naturally, Indian scientists did not take the texts very seriously, but then became more positive about the value of them when the Chinese announced that they were including certain parts of the data for study in their space program!

This was one of the first instances of a government admitting to be researching anti-gravity.

The manuscripts did not say definitely that interplanetary travel was ever made but did mention, of all things, a planned trip to the Moon, though it is not clear whether this trip was actually carried out. However, one of the great Indian epics, the Ramayana, does have a highly detailed story in it of a trip to the moon in a Vimana (or “Astra”), and in fact details a battle on the moon with an “Asvin” (or Atlantean” airship. ..

According to ancient Indian texts, the people had flying machines which were called “Vimanas.” The ancient Indian epic describes a Vimana as a double-deck, circular aircraft with portholes and a dome, much as we would imagine a flying saucer.

It flew with the “speed of the wind” and gave forth a “melodious sound.” There were at least four different types of Vimanas; some saucer shaped, others like long cylinders (“cigar shaped airships”).

The ancient Indian texts on Vimanas are so numerous, it would take volumes to relate what they had to say. The ancient Indians, who manufactured these ships themselves, wrote entire flight manuals on the control of the various types of Vimanas, many of which are still in existence, and some have even been translated into English.

The Samara Sutradhara is a scientific treatise dealing with every possible angle of air travel in a Vimana. There are 230 stanzas dealing with the construction, take-off, cruising for thousand of miles, normal and forced landings, and even possible collisions with birds.

In 1875, the Vaimanika Sastra, a fourth century B.C. text written by Bharadvajy the Wise, using even older texts as his source, was rediscovered in a temple in India.

It dealt with the operation of Vimanas and included information on the steering, precautions for long flights, protection of the airships from storms and lightening and how to switch the drive to “solar energy” from a free energy source which sounds like “anti-gravity.”

The Vaimanika Sastra (or Vymaanika-Shaastra) has eight chapters with diagrams, describing three types of aircraft, including apparatuses that could neither catch on fire nor break.

It also mentions 31 essential parts of these vehicles and 16 materials from which they are constructed, which absorb light and heat; for which reason they were considered suitable for the construction of Vimanas.

This document has been translated into English and is available by writing the publisher: VYMAANIDASHAASTRA AERONAUTICS by Maharishi Bharadwaaja, translated into English and edited, printed and published by Mr. G. R. Josyer, Mysore, India, 1979 (sorry, no street address). Mr. Josyer is the director of the International Academy of Sanskrit Investigation located in Mysore’

Chinese Descendants Of Mahabharata King Pururava?


The origin of Chinese and Japanese are a mystery.

While there are claims that the Japanese descended from the Chinese there is yet to be a conclusion.

One does not find much beyond Buddhism in China , thanks to their self censorship.

However , there are materials available to indicate that Hinduism was in existence in China before the advent of Buddhism.

Chinese worship Hindu Gods.Image.jpg
Chinese worship Hindu Gods.

Please read my post on this.

Now there are references in the Mahabharata that the Chinese  fought on the side of the Kauravas in the Epic Battle of Mahabharata, they, being the friends of Bhagadutta, who was close to Duryodhana.

Vagadatta of Pragyotispur joined the Kurus and we find that the Chinese people sided with Vagadatta, the king of Pragyotispur. It is also found that Vagadatta was present in Yudhisthiras court with many Kirat, Chin, and other soldiers.

However, during the Rajasuya Yaga of Yudhishtra,Bhagadutta agreed to Arjuna to pay Homage to Yudhistra and be his ally.

It is also stated that the Chinese were the descendants of the son of Pururavas,Ayu.

There is a reference in the Chinese tradition that the ancestors of the Chinese people came to China after crossing the high mountain ranges to the South.

Lost Chinese History supports that King named Vikrama conquered all the parts of Modern China.

He gave Chinese culture a new life which was lost due to internal conflicts.

 

This probably refers to Vikramadtiya.

King Yudhisthira wanted to perform the greatest of all sacrifices viz. the Rajasuya sacrifice. This involved military activity along with the usual sacrificial rites. The king’s armies would march under his appointed military generals in four cardinal directions and defeat all the kingdoms encountered in their paths. Any kingdom can chose to accept the sway of the king peacefully or choose to battle against the king’s military general. King Yudhisthira obtained a huge army by defeating the rising Magadha empire of king Jarasandha as Bhima slew Jarasandha in a dual of mace-fight. Taking a portion each of that army, the four brothers of king Yudhisthira, viz. Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula and Sahadeva marched from Indraprasthato the four cardinal directions. Arjuna was responsible for the military expedition towards the northern direction.

Like Jarasandha, king Bhagadatta was another impediment for Yudhisthira’s Rajasuya sacrifice. Jarasandha was slain by Bhima by executing the clever strategy formed by Krishna. Bhagadatta was however a friend of Pandu, the father of the five Pandavas. Arjuna chose to use diplomacy to subdue Bhagadatta, rather than slaying him in battle.

Pragjyotisha,Captal of Bhagadatta.

Pragjyotisha is mentioned as a city only once (Mbh.5.48) in Mahabharata. The name Pragjyotisha is applied to the whole of the territory controlled by Bhagadatta, which included the regions north to Indraprastha as well. As a result, confusion arose in the location of the city of Pragjyotisha.Gohati in Assam is usually considered to be the Pragjyotishapura or the city of Pragjyotisha. The location of the city can be in Himachal Pradesh as well. There is a village named Kamaru (Kamru) in Baspa Valley (Sangla Valley) of Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh. This is a candidate location of Pragjyotisha city. The name ‘Kamaru’ could be the remnant of the name ‘Kamarupa’ another name of Bhagadatta’s territories. The name Kamarup is however not found in Mahabharata. This name is not used in Mahabharata to denote any territory of Bhagadatta. The name Kamaru or Kamru is also found in Tibet to the north of Bhutan as well. It is not clear if this territory belonged to the Chinas mentioned as allied to Bhagadatta. Mahabharata mentioned about a China territory close to Sindhu river in Tibet as well.

Prag-jyotisha (Praag:- East; jyotisha: light, astronomy) means the eastern light. Hence it lied to the east, but probably from the point of view of the land of the five rivers (Punjab). Mahabharata also mentions another city or territory with similar name viz. Uttarayotisha (Uttara-jyotisha) meaningthe northern light. Jyotisha also means astronomy. It is not clear if these cities has anything to do with astronomy or if Prag-jyotisha and Uttara-jyotisha had some relationship. Uttarayotisha is mentioned as part of Nakula‘s military expedition to the west.

According to French art historian Rene Grousset, the name China comes from “an ancient” Sanskrit name for the regions to the east, and not, as often supposed, from the name of the state of Ch’in,” the first dynasty established by Shih Huang Ti in 221 B.C.

The Sanskrit name Cheena for China could have been derived from the small state of that name in Chan-si in the northwest of China, which flourished in the fourth century B.C. Scholars have pointed out that the Chinese word for lion, shih, used long before the Chin dynasty, was derived from the Sanskrit word, simha, and that the Greek word for China, Tzinista, used by some later writers, appears to be derivative of the Sanskrit Chinasthana. According to Terence Duke, martial arts went from India to China. Fighting without weapons was a specialty of the ancient Ksatriya warriors of India.

The story of Sun Hou Tzu, the Monkey King, and Hsuang Tsang. It is a vicarious and humorous tale, an adventure story akin to the Hindu epic of Ramayana, and like Ramayana, a moral tale of the finer aspects of human endeavor which come to prevail over those of a less worthy nature. The book ends with a dedication to India: ‘I dedicate this work to Buddha’s Pure Land. May it repay the kindness of patron and preceptor, may it mitigate the sufferings of the lost and damned….’

(source: Eastern Wisdom, Michael Jordan, p. 134-151)

Hu Shih, (1891-1962), Chinese philosopher in Republican China. He was ambassador to the U.S. (1938-42) and chancellor of Peking University (1946-48). He said:

“India conquered and dominated China culturally for two thousand years without ever having to send a single soldier across her border.”

Lin Yutang, author of The Wisdom of China and India:

“The contact with poets, forest saints and the best wits of the land, the glimpse into the first awakening of Ancient India’s mind as it searched, at times childishly and naively, at times with a deep intuition, but at all times earnestly and passionately, for the spiritual truths and the meaning of existence – this experience must be highly stimulating to anyone, particularly because the Hindu culture is so different and therefore so much to offer.” Not until we see the richness of the Hindu mind and its essential spirituality can we understand India….”

“I see no reason to doubt,” comments Arthur Waley in his book, The Way and its Power, “that the ‘holy mountain-men’ (sheng-hsien) described by Lieh Tzu are Indian rishi; and when we read in Chuang Tzu of certain Taoists who practiced movements very similar to the asanas of Hindu yoga, it is at least a possibility that some knowledge of the yoga technique which these rishi used had also drifted into China.”

Both Sir L. Wooley and British historian Arnold Toynbee speak of an earlier ready-made culture coming to China. They were right. That was the Vedic Hindu culture from India with its Sanskrit language and sacred scripts. The contemporary astronomical expertise of the Chinese, as evidenced by their records of eclipses; the philosophy of the Chinese, their statecraft, all point to a Vedic origin. That is why from the earliest times we find Chinese travelers visiting India very often to renew their educational and spiritual links.

Universe Size 13.7 Billion Light Years Surya Siddhanta Science Agrees


When one talks of Distances in Space one is struck by the sheer magnitude of it.

The distances involved are so huge that the Speed of Light is taken as the base.

Even this is not sufficient to comprehend and measure large numbers involved.

Hence the concept of AU, Astronomical Unit.

Observable Universe.Image.png
Observable Universe.

One AU equals the distance traveled by Light in a Year.

That is 149 597 871 Kilometers.

Definition: An Astronomical Unit is the mean distance between the Earth and the Sun. In 2012, the International Astronomical Union defined the distance to be 149,597,870,700 meters.(http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/glossary/au.html)

Astronomers have measured the age of the universe to be approximately 13.8 billion years old. Because of the connection between distance and thespeed of light, this means they can look at a region of space that lies 13.8 billion light-years away. Like a ship in the empty ocean, astronomers on Earth can turn their telescopes to peer 13.8 billion light-years in every direction, which puts *Earth inside of an observable sphere with a radius of 13.8 billion light-years. The word “observable” is key; the sphere limits what scientists can see but not what is there.

But though the sphere appears almost 28 billion light-years in diameter, it is far larger. Scientists know that the universe is expanding. Thus, while scientists might see a spot that lay 13.8 billion light-years from Earth at the time of the Big Bang, the universe has continued to expand over its lifetime. Today, that same spot is 46 billion light-years away, making the diameter of the observable universe a sphere around 92 billion light-years

What Surya Siddhnata Siddhantha says.

Saurapakshiya Suryasiddhanta speaks of a mahayuga of 4320000 years, so do the Puranas.

There are 14 universes (Bhuvanas) according to Vedic-Puranic tradition, and our material (physical) Universe is at the middle level. We can see 7 universes at a time in any one direction, but not all 14 simultaneously. *According to Suryasiddhanta 1955885109 years have elapsed (in 2009 AD) since the beginning of Creation. When we see seven universes arranged one after another, we see into (1955885109 * 7 =) 13691 million years of TIME, and into 13691 million light-years of SPACE. Currently, scientists believe the extent of Universe to be of 13.7 billion light years.

 

Divide 13.7 billion years with 10^42 (10 raised to the power 42, or 42 zeroes after 1).

13.7 billion years = (13,691,195,763 years) * (31558149.61 seconds per year) = 4.320688 * {10^17} seconds

This is the largest QUANTUM of TIME.”

Modern Astronomy confirms this.

* One has to know that Speed and distance are interchangeable while talking of large distance numbers in Space.

Ashoka, Emperor of India.image.jpg

Greeks Followed Buddhism Ashokas Edicts


I have been planning to write on Buddhism and Jainism, the two Great Religions of India apart from Hinduism.

To begin with let me share information about the propagation of Buddhism around the world.

Ashoka Maurya (/əˈʃkə/; Sanskrit: अशोक मौर्य; 304–232 BCE), commonly known as Ashoka and also as Ashoka the Great, was an Indian emperor of the Maurya Dynasty who ruled almost all of the Indian subcontinent from circa 269 BCE to 232 BCE.[1] One of India’s greatest emperors, Ashoka reigned over a realm that stretched from the Hindu Kush mountains in the west to Bengal in the East and covered the entire Indian subcontinent except parts of present day Tamil Nadu and Kerala. The empire’s capital wasPataliputra (in Magadha, present-day Bihar), with provincial capitals at Taxila and Ujjain.

 

Buddhism in the world during Asoka's Reign.image.jpg
Spread of Buddhism during Asoka’s period

Asoka took to Buddhism with great zest and propagated it around the world by sending out preachers.

He had recorded this in his edicts.

Emperor Asoka's Edicts.image.jpg
Emperor Asoka’s Edicts Locations.

The Ashoka inscriptions represent the first tangible evidence of Buddhism. The edicts describe in detail the first wide expansion of Buddhism through the sponsorship of one of the most powerful kings of Indian history. According to the edicts, the extent of Buddhist proselytism during this period reached as far as the Mediterranean, and many Buddhist monuments were created.

The inscriptions proclaim Asoka’s beliefs in the Buddhist concept of dhamma and his efforts to develop “dhamma” throughout his kingdom. Although Buddhism and the Buddha are mentioned, the edicts of Asoka tend to focus on social and moral precepts rather than religious practices or the philosophical dimension of Buddhism.

The inscriptions revolve around a few repetitive themes: Ashoka’s conversion to Buddhism, the description of his efforts to spread Buddhism, his moral and religious precepts, and his social and animal welfare program.

Ashoka explains that he converted to Buddhism out of remorse for his conquest of the Kalingas around 264 B.C.E. in eastern India (near the present-day state of Orissa):

Beloved-of-the-Gods, King Piyadasi, conquered the Kalingas eight years after his coronation. One hundred and fifty thousand were deported, one hundred thousand were killed and many more died (from other causes). After the Kalingas had been conquered, Beloved-of-the-Gods came to feel a strong inclination towards the Dhamma, a love for the Dhamma and for instruction in Dhamma. Now Beloved-of-the-Gods feels deep remorse for having conquered the Kalingas (Rock Edict Nb13, S. Dhammika).

Following his conversion, Ashoka traveled throughout India and visited sacred Buddhist locations, where he would typically erect a pillar bearing his inscriptions:

Twenty years after his coronation, Beloved-of-the-Gods, King Piyadasi, visited this place and worshipped because here the Buddha, the sage of the Sakyans, was born. He had a stone figure and a pillar set up and because the Lord was born here, the village of Lumbini was exempted from tax and required to pay only one eighth of the produce (Minor Pillar Edict Nb1, S. Dhammika).

Ashoka’s concept of “Dhamma” seems to be synonymous with righteousness. In order to propagate the Buddhist faith, Ashoka explains he sent emissaries to the Hellenistic kings as far as the Mediterranean, and to the peoples throughout India, claiming they were all converted to the Dharma as a result. He names the Greek rulers of the time, inheritors of the conquest of Alexander the Great, from Bactria to as far as Greece and North Africa, displaying an amazingly clear grasp of the political situation at the time.

Buddhist proselytism at the time of kingAshoka (260-218 B.C.E.).

Now it is conquest by Dhamma that Beloved-of-the-Gods considers to be the best conquest. And it (conquest by Dhamma) has been won here, on the borders, even six hundred yojanas away, where the Greek king Antiochos rules, beyond there where the four kings named Ptolemy, Antigonos, Magas and Alexander rule, likewise in the south among the Cholas, the Pandyas, and as far as Tamraparni (Rock Edict Nb13, S. Dhammika).

The distance of 600 yojanas (a yojanas being about 7 miles), corresponds to the distance between the center of India and Greece (roughly 4,000 miles).

  • Antiochos refers to Antiochus II Theos of Syria (261-246 B.C.E.), who controlled the Seleucid Empire from Syria to Bactria, in the east from 305 to 250 B.C.E., and was therefore a direct neighbor of Ashoka.
  • Ptolemy refers to Ptolemy II Philadelphos of Egypt (285-247 B.C.E.), king of the dynasty founded by Ptolemy I, a former general of Alexander the Great, in Egypt.
  • Antigonos refers to Antigonus II Gonatas of Macedon (278-239 B.C.E.)
  • Magas refers to Magas of Cyrene (300-258 B.C.E.)
  • Alexander refers to Alexander II of Epirus (272-258 B.C.E.)

Shiva Uma Wedding Agastya To South 40 Million Years Ago Tectonics Proof


Indian Philosophy, Cosmology and Hinduism are so intricately connected with one another that it is difficult to separate them.

The Indian texts mention through the Puranas and the Philosophy through Astronomical Observations about the age of the Earth.

Here one encounters a problem of Philosophy, that of Time.

Indian philosophy treats Time as No Linear, Cyclic, that is time coils around.

For details please read my Post on Time, Non Linear.

The Four Aeons, Yugas keep recurring as also the Astronomical events.

The Purana state  that Agastya moved towards the South twice .

Once when Lord Shiva ordered him to move over to South to stabilize the earth, when the North end came down, South rose because of overcrowding by people who came to witness Shiva’s wedding with Uma.

Shiva and Parvathi.Image.jpg
Shiva and Parvathi.

He moved again to South to tame the Vindhya mountain.

( These two events have happened at different periods, not at one instance.

Now let us look the calculation of Time .

Star Canopus, Agastya Star.image.jog
Star Canopus, Agastya Star.

There are Four Yugas and they repeat themselves.

Brahma, the Creator begins Creation at the beginning of each Yuga which will be dissolved at the end of one Chatur Yuga

 

Kali Yuga                                4,32000 Years

Dwpara Yuga  4,32,000*2= 8,64,000

Tretha Yuga    4,32,000*3=1296000

Satya Yuga        4,32,000*4=1728000

Total                                         4820000 Years One Chatur Yuga

One Manvantara is 306.72 million Years.

 

 

Life in the universe is created and destroyed once every 4.1 to 8.2 billion years, which is one full day (day and night) for Brahma. The lifetime of a Brahma is believed to be 311 trillion and 40 billion years-Hindu Cosmology.

‘Eighty million years ago, India was approximately 6400 km (3968 miles) south of the Eurasian plate. Separating the two was the Tethys Sea. The Indo-Australian tectonic plate – containing the continent of Australia, the Indian subcontinent, and surrounding ocean – was pushed northward by the convection currents generated in the inner mantle. For millions of years, India made its way across the sea toward the Eurasian plate. As India approached Asia, around 40 million years ago, the Tethys Sea began to shrink and its seabed slowly pushed upwards. The Tethys Sea disappeared completely around 20 million years ago and sediments rising from its seabed formed a mountain range. When India and Tibet collided, instead of descending with the plate, the relatively light sedimentary and metamorphic rock that makes up the subcontinent of India pushed against Tibet, forcing it upwards, and created a massive mountain fold. The Himalayas.’

 

Proof from the position of Agastya Star,Canopus.

Canopus is associated with the sageAgastya, one of the ancient rishis (the others are associated with the stars of the Big Dipper). Agastya, the star, is said to be the ‘cleanser of waters’ and its rising coincides with the calming of the waters of the Indian Ocean. It is considered the son of Pulasthya, son of Brahma.

Canopus is 310 Light Years away from the Earth.

‘Agastya, is the author of 25 hymns (nos 166 to 190) of the first ‘mandala’ of the Rigveda.
2. Canopus, the second brightest star in the night sky, is called Agastya in India.
3. This star is close to the ecliptic south pole, having an ecliptic latitude of –76°.
4. As the celestial poles go round the ecliptic poles due to the phenomenon of precession of the earth’s axis of rotation, this star becomes visible from different latitudes on the globe at different times. If we assume that for a star to be visible at a place its altitude at the meridian passage should be at least 5°, then calculations give the visibility curve for Agastya (Canopus) as follows.
5. Agastya was not visible from any part of India before 10,000 BC.
6. First it became visible at Kanyakumari around that epoch. Thereafter, as it was brought more and more northwards by precession, it became visible at various places in India.
7. It became visible in the east coast (in the present Chennai region) in 8500 BC, and in the present day Hyderabad in 7200 BC, in the Vindhya region in 5200 BC, at Delhi in 3100 BC.
8. At present it is visible from most parts of India for longer or shorter durations. This cycle will repeat after every 25,765 years. It is thus clear that around 5000 BC, the star Agastya was visible from the south of the Vindhyas, but not from the north of it.
9. If sage Agastya was the first to cross the Vindhyas from the north, he would have been the first northerner to see the star. Hence the star has been named after him, just as the Magellanic clouds in the southern sky are named after the navigator Magellan, who first saw them as he sailed southwards.
10. This fixes an epoch of 5000 BC for sage Agastya. This date is based on the assumption that for a star to be visible its meridian altitude has to be at least 5°.
11. If we make 8° meridian altitude as the criterion for visibility, the date of Agastya would be shifted to about 4000 BC. The dates 5000 and 4000 BC should therefore bracket the probable epoch of Agastya crossing the Vindhyan mountains.

Hindu Puranas state that the south Pole came up because of over crowding in the Himalayas because pople has rushed in to witness the wedding of Lord Shiva with Parvati and to set the earth’s balance aright Shiva ordered Agastya to go to South and he did so.

Now the tectonic plate movement of the Himalayas confirm this by observing that

” The Indo-Australian tectonic plate – containing the continent of Australia, the Indian subcontinent, and surrounding ocean – was pushed northward by the convection currents generated in the inner mantle. For millions of years, India made its way across the sea toward the Eurasian plate. As India approached Asia, around 40 million years ago, the Tethys Sea began to shrink and its seabed slowly pushed upwards. The Tethys Sea disappeared completely around 20 million years ago and sediments rising from its seabed formed a mountain range. When India and Tibet collided, instead of descending with the plate, the relatively light sedimentary and metamorphic rock that makes up the subcontinent of India pushed against Tibet, forcing it upwards, and created a massive mountain fold.”

Hence Agastya left for the South around 40 Million years ago to balance the earth.

Please read my Post  Canopus Agastya validates Sanatana Dharma.

Sita Performed Sraddha Cursed River


The majority held belief is that women should not perform Sandhyavandana and death Rites.

I differ from this view.

Phalgu River, cursed by Sita.Image.jpg
Phalgu River.

Great Rishis have been women, like Maiteyi,Gargi,Kathyayani.

These Rishis have composed Veda Sutras, Sukthas.

Vedic wisdom is encapsulated in myriad hymns and 27 women-seers emerge from them.

 

Ghosha, who has a definite human form. Granddaughter of Dirghatamas and daughter of Kakshivat, both composers of hymns in praise of Ashwins, Ghosha has two entire hymns of the tenth book, each containing 14 verses, assigned to her name. The first eulogizes the Ashwins, the heavenly twins who are also physicians; the second is a personal wish expressing her intimate feelings and desires for married life. Ghosha suffered from an incurable disfiguring disease, probably leprosy, and remained a spinster at her father’s house. Her implorations with the Ashwins, and the devotion of her forefathers towards them made them cure her disease and allow her to experience wedded bliss.

The Rig Veda contains about one thousand hymns, of which about 10 are accredited to Maitreyi, the woman seer and philosopher.

Gargi, the Vedic prophetess and daughter of sage Vachaknu, composed several hymns that questioned the origin of all existence. When King Janak of Videha organized a ‘brahmayajna’, a philosophic congress centered around the fire sacrament, Gargi was one of the eminent participants. She challenged the sage Yajnavalkya with a volley of perturbing questions on the soul or ‘atman’ that confounded the learned man who had till then silenced many an eminent scholar. Her question – “The layer that is above the sky and below the earth, which is described as being situated between the earth and the sky and which is indicated as the symbol of the past, present and future, where is that situated?” – bamboozled even the great Vedic men of letters.

One is expected to have Upaveedha to learn the Vedas.

These women composed Veda Sukthas.

They could not have learnt the Vedas without Upaveedha.

Hence they had to perform Sandhyavanda and other Karmic duties.

I have a detailed article on this.

Now there is Reference in the Ramayana and Garuda Purana that Sita offered Pinda to Dasaratha, her father in law at Gaya.

There is reference to the city of Gaya and the Phalgu in the Ramayana in which it says that Sita had cursed the Phalgu River. There is an interesting story and the mythology states that on account of this curse, the Phalgu lost its water, and the river is simply a vast stretch of sand dunes.According to tradition, in the absence of Rama, his wife Sita offered pinda on its banks to Dasharatha father of Rama.

The story goes that Rama, along with his brothers and Sita, came to Gaya to perform the sacred rites for his father, Dasaratha. When the brothers were bathing in the river, Sita was sitting on the banks, playing with the sand. Suddenly, Dasaratha appeared out of the sand, and asked for the Pindam, saying he was hungry. Sita asked him to wait till his sons returned, so that she could give him the traditional Pindam of rice and til. He refused to wait, asking her to give him pindams made of the sand in her hand.

Having no other option, she gave him the Pindam he desired with five witnesses – the Akshaya Vatam, the Falguni River, a cow, a Tulsi plant and a Brahmin. Soon, Rama returned and started the rituals. In those days apparently, the ancestors would arrive in person to collect their share, and when Dasaratha did not appear, they wondered why. Sita then told them what had happened, but Rama could not believe that his father would accept pindams made of sand. Sita now mentioned her witnesses, and asked them to tell Rama the truth.

Among the five, only the Akshaya Vatam took her side and told the truth, while the others lied, trying to take Rama’s side. In her anger, Sita cursed all of them thus: the Falguni river henceforth would have no water at Gaya; the Cow would no longer be worshipped from the front as all others are- only its backside would be worshipped; there would be no more Tulsi plants at Gaya and the Gaya Brahmins would never be satisfied, they would always be hungry and crave more and more. She then blessed the Akshaya Vatam saying that all who came to Gaya would perform the Pinda pradaanam at the Akshaya Vatam too.

Sri Sita is said to have performed Sandhyavandanam including Dhyaanam and Japam (Vide page 97 of Notes on AyOdhya KhaaNDam of Srimad Vaalmiki Ramayanam by Sri C.R.Srinivasa Iyengar)

View of Kanchi Acharya.

I said that the twice-born must perform sandhyavandana with the well-being of women and other jatis in mind. I also explained why all samskaras are not prescribed for the fourth varna. Now we must consider the question of women, why they do not have such rituals and samskaras.

Even though we perform the punyaha-vacana and namakarana of newborn girls and celebrate their first birthday, we do not conduct their caula and upanayana nor the other samskaras or vows laid down for brahmacarins. Of course, they have the marriage samskara. But in other rites like sacrifices the main part is that of the husband, though she (the wife) has to be by his side. In aupasana alone does a woman have a part in making oblations in the sacred fire.

  1. Why is it so?
  2. The rites performed before a child is born are intended for the birth of a male child (niseka, pumsavana, simanta). Does it mean, as present-day reformers and women’s libbers say, that Hindu women were downgraded and kept in darkness?
  3. What reason did I mention for the fourth varna not having to perform many of the samskaras?

That these were not necessary considering their vocations and the fact that they can work for the welfare of the world without the physical and mental benefits to be derived from the samskaras. If they also spend their time in Vedic learning and in sacrifices, what will happen to their duties? So most of the samskaras are not necessary for them. They reach the desire goal without these rites by carrying out their duties.

“Svakarmana tam abhyarcya siddhim vindati manavah“, so says the Gita. I have spoken to you about this earlier.

Just as society is divided according to occupations and the samskaras are correspondingly different, so too there are differences between men and women in domestic life. Running a household means different types of work, cooking, keeping the house clean, bringing up the children, etc. By nature women can do these chores better than men. If they also take an active part in rituals, what will happen to such work? Each by serving her husband and by looking after her household becomes inwardly pure.

In truth three is no disparity between men and women, nor are women discriminated

against as present-day reformers allege.

Work is divided for the proper maintenance not only of the home but the nation on the whole; and care has been taken not to have any duplication.

There is no intention of lowering the status of any section in this division of labour.

The body, in the case of certain people, is meant to preserve the mantras and there are samskaras which have the purpose of making it worthy of the same.

Why should the same rituals be prescribed for those who do not have such tasks to carry out?

Glassware to be sent by railway parcel is specially taken care of since it is fragile. Even greater care is taken in dispatching kerosene or petrol. If the same precautions are not taken in transporting other goods, does it mean that they are poorly thought of?

Effects Of Yagnya ,Agnihotra, Scientific Study Results


There are two types of offerings in the Fire in Hinduism,Yaga and Yagnya.

Yaaga is one conducted with a Purpose, to fulfill a desire.

Yagnya.Image.jpg
Yagnya Being performed

Yagnya is conducted because it is to be conducted, a Duty, A Categorical Imperative as Immanuel Kant puts it.

Yagnya is to be performed with a sense of detachment, anticipating nothing in return.

Fire is chosen to perform Yaaga and Yagnya because Fire has Five Unique Qualities , called

‘ Panchagnividya’

  1. The flame of fire always goes upwards.It implies that despite immense pressures of fear and temptations our flame of wisdom, and foresight should ever be kept-alight and up-turned.
  2. Anything coming in contact with fire becomes fire itself, indicating that we , having been a part of Reality,God, become One with It.
  3. Fire accumulates nothing, reminding us that ,in Life we accumulate Nothing
  4. The residue of fire are ashes making us remember that we turn to Ashes thereby reaffirming the Impermanence of Life.
Types of Yagnyas.

 

The Seva Yagna — altruist service of the society is a noble example of Yagya.

The Gyan Yagya, The Comprehension of True Knowledge.

Vak Yagnya, Speaking Good of others, never ill of others.

Mano Yagnya, thinking of only Noble Thoughts,

Hearing only that which is Good for All (Bhadram karnobi Srunuyaama Devaa-Rig Veda)

Seeing only those that are Noble.

Vak Yagnyena Kalpatham,

Mano Yagnena kalpatham’

Sakshur Yagnena Kalpatham,

Srothram Yagnena Kalpatham (Sri Rudram-Chamaka Prasna)

In Purusha Suktha Brahma is offered as Havis, offering to Fire by the Devas.

‘Yath Purushena Havisaa Devaa yagnya mathan vatha”( Purusha Suktham)

Purusha Suktha speaks about the evolution of the Universe.

 

The Prana Yagya implies — the service of saving the lives of people from suffering and agonies and inspiring liveliness and respect for life in them. A variety of such Yagyas are described in the Shastras.

 

Benefits of Yagnya.

Yagya is also glorified as “Yajóoaya Sarvakaamdhuk” meaning, “Yagya is the source of fulfilling all desires”.

“Agni Mºde Purohitam” The first revelation of Rig Veda of is said to have given knowledge of kindling fire toYagya is also glorified as“Yajóoaya Sarvakaamdhuk” meaning, “Yagya is the source of fulfilling all desires”. .

Yagnya is the primordial source of the Forces of Nature and this is explained in the Purusha Suktha.

The efficacy of Yagnya, Scientific study Results.
3. Purification of Environment by Yagna
The industrial wastes, rapid urbanization, deforestation, air and water pollution,
disturbances in the ozone layer -formation, radioactive waves etc., have
destabilized the human, animal and plant life cycles. The ecological imbalance
caused by these acts of ‘civilized men’ has resulted into disastrous threat not only
to human survival but to the life as a whole on our planet.
Till recently it was accepted that research into science can furnish answer to all of
man’s problems. Today we find increasing number of diseases including
malfunctioning of body organs due to increasing severity of pollution in the
atmosphere. Ozone layer depletion has been causing ailments like sunburn, skin
cancer, cataracts and weakening of the immune system. Viruses are becoming
drug-resistant and showing consistent growth trends.
Experimental studies show that the incidence of physical ailments, sickness and
disease are reduced in the houses, where the
Yagna (Agnihotra) is regularly performed because it creates a pure, nutritional and medicinal atmosphere. Itrenews the brain cells, revitalizes the skin, purifies blood and prevents growth of pathogenic organisms.
Agnihotra is basically a healing process. ‘Heal the atmosphere and the healed
atmosphere will heal you’— is the Modus Operandi
Purification of environment through the constituent electrons of the substances
fumigated in the Yagna is an obvious effect of this process [2-4]. The observation
of some distinguished scientists is note worthy in this regard.
Dr. Hafkine has mentioned that — “mixing ghee and sugar and burning them
creates smoke which kills the germs of certain diseases and secretion takes place
from some glands relate to the wind-pipe, which fill our heart and mind with
pleasure.
Sugars present in Havishya have great power to purify the atmosphere. It kills
the germs of T.B., measles, smallpox and cow-pox — remarks Prof. Tilward.
According to Dr. Shirowich, a Russian scientist has remarked that (i) Cow’s milk
contains great power of protection from atomic radiation; (ii) Houses having
cow-dung covered floors enjoy complete protection from atomic radiation; (iii) If
cow’s ghee is put into Yagna fire, its fumes lessen the effect of atomic radiation to
a great extent.
The medicinal fumes emanating from Agnihotra have been observed by
researchers in the field of microbiology to be clearly bacteriolethal in nature.
These eradicate bacteria and other micro-organisms, which are the root cause of
illness and diseases. This must be the reason why the incidence of physical
ailments, sickness and diseases becomes less in the households, where
Agnihotra is regularly performed.
Even without going into detailed chemical bacteriology, it can be stated that
performance of Yagna leads to purification of air. This takes place in the
following four ways .
3.1. Removal of Foul Odors:
As already stated, under steam volatilization, the various volatile oils get diffused
in the surrounding atmosphere along with steam and smoke. Since these oils have
distinct good smell, the foul odors are automatically replaced. This aroma can be
experienced easily in the surroundings when
Yagna is performed due to diffusion of substances like thymol, eugenol, pine, terpinol and oils of sandal-wood, camphor and clove.
3.2. Removal of Bacteria:
As stated under products of combustion, the partial oxidation of hydrocarbons
and decomposition of complex organic substances produce formal aldehyde
which is a powerful antiseptic. It is also interesting to note that germicidal action
of formaldehyde is only effective in the presence of water vapor which is also
produced in large quantities in Yagna.
 The use of formaldehyde spray for disinfecting of walls, ceiling etc., is common and such a spray is automatically produced when
Yagna
is performed.
The oxidation of hydrocarbons also produces formic acid and acetic acid both of
which are good disinfectants. Use of formic acid for preservation of fruits and that
of acetic acid in preserving vinegar is a common practice.
The antiseptic and antibiotic effects of fumes of
Yagna
have also been examined
by conducting suitable experiments on rabbits and mice and it has been
established that fumes emitted in Yagna are powerful antibiotic.
Agnihotra ash purifies and cleanses the water making it fit for drinking
3.3. Removal of insects:
There are non-bacterial parasites like flies, ringworm, dice, fleas etc., which are
immune to bactericides, which are also harmful to other living beings.
Such insects which are generally immune to ordinary reagents. However they
either get killed or are driven away, when they come in contact with the fumes of
volatile oils like camphor diffused in the environment.

 

3.4. Effects on Plants and Vegetation:
The disinfection of air is not only useful to animal life but also helps plant’s life
though the bacteria responsible for diseases in both may be different. The
aromatic substances during Yagna get diffused in the air and offer protection to
plant life against harmful organisms. This ensures healthy plant growth.
Agnihotra’s atmosphere and ash can be used as adjutants in the ‘Natural
farming’ methods — also known as the Agnihotra farming methods. It is a
holistic concept of growing plants in healthy atmosphere and maintaining
ecological balance by performingAgnihotra(Yagna) in the middle of the farm
and using theYagna – ash as a fertilizer. It is not only safe and productive but also
holistic in its approach towards environment.
3.5. Role of CO2 generated in Yagna:
Consignment of the wood and other organic maters to flames has been always
controversial because of generation of CO and CO 2 and increase
in consequent ‘green house’ effect. It had been argued that performance of
Yagna also produces CO and CO2. It should be noted here that the way in which theSamidhas and Havishyaare burnt in. Yagna is a process of slow combustion at higher
temperature. While the burning of coal in factories or in the household fire
involves rapid combustion. where oxygen is sucked in large quantities and
enormous CO2 is emitted. In the slow combustion taking place in the process of
Yagna, small quantity of O2is utilized meager CO2 is emitted that poses no threat
to the environment. In fact whatever CO2 is generated it is readily absorbed by the
surrounding vegetation and CO 2 cycle is strengthened [4].
The other important aspect is the fact that CO 2produced in
Yagna is not alwaysfree CO 2 but it remains mixed with other aromatic oils and antiseptic products. It therefore, acts as a vehicle in transporting such products to distant surroundings.
The use of CO 2 as a cerebral stimulant to assist the patients suffering from lack of
ventilation is common in medical world. Its use to control and cure many mental
disorders is also known to medical science. Small amounts of CO 2 inhaled by the
persons performing Yagna acts as a stimulant and more and more aromatic
fumes are inhaled which help in curing mental disorders.
Particularly effective results with respect to the elimination or reduction in
radiation were achieved through Yagna fire and ash. These observations are
made by Dr. L. Maela Anatoninhowska of Poland after using P.S.I. techniques.
Results of Some Recent Experiments:
A group of scientists led by Dr. Manoj Garg, Director, Environmental and
Technical Consultants and the Uttar Pradesh pollution control board conducted
experiments during the Ashwamedha Yagna at Gorakhpur, U.P. These
experiments were set up at about 20 meters east from the
Yagnashala. The samples of 100 ml each of water and air collected from the surroundings were analyzed using high volume envirotech APM-45 and other sensitive instruments.
A summary of their results ( [1] – Akhand Jyoti, Sept. ‘97 p.22) is presented below:
In Air Samples (unit mg per average sample)
Instant Level of Sulphur dioxide Level of Nitrous Oxide Before Yagna 3.36 1.16
During Yagna2.82 1.14 After Yagna 0.80 1.02
Bacteria Count in Average Water Samples
Before Yagna 4500
During Yagna 2470
After Yagna 1250
Minerals in the Ash (Bhasm) of Yagna
Phosphorous 4076 mg per kg. Potassium 3407 mg per kg. Calcium 7822 mg per kg.
Magnesium 6424 mg per kg. Nitrogen 32 mg per kg. Quispar 2% W/W
These results clearly support the claims made about the role of
Yagna in control
of air pollution. The Deputy Director, Agriculture had submitted a technical
report based on such results, recommending the use ofYagna’s ash as an
effective fertilizer.
Comparable results were also obtained by the scientific experiments conducted in
about 27 large scale Yagnasorganized by Shantikunj, Hardwar in India and
abroad during 1993-1995

Legend.

The word Damodara is elaborately explained in Vaishnava philosophies.  In short, it means that Lord can be controlled by pure love.  During the childhood of Krishnavatara, He was terribly mischievous boy and Mother Yasodha could not bring Him to order.  She bound Him by a rope, yet he moved with the rope in between two trees, broke them and granted salvation to two demons.  The scar of the rope stayed on His waist deeply showing His willingness to be bound by a mother’s love. Damam in Sanskrit and Thambu in Tamil mean rope.  Udharam means belly.  The rope scar is around the belly, hence Damodara.  Soumya means ever smiling and looking handsome.  Hence, the name Soumya Damodara.

How To reach.

Sri Radha Vrindavanchandra Ji,Vrindavan.Image.jpg
Sri Radha Vrindavanchandra Ji,Vrindavan.

Sri Sri Radha Damodar Mandir is an ancient temple established by Madhav Gaudiya Sampradaya. It was established by Srila Jiva Goswami in the year 1542 C.E. The deities here were served by Srila Jiva Goswami. Sri Radha Damodar deities were manifested by Srila Rupa Goswami, who gave them to his dear disciple and nephew-Jiva Goswami for service and worship. Later due to the terror of the muslim king Aurengzeb, Sri Radha Damodar were shifted to Jaipur for sometime and when the social conditions became favorable were brought back to Sri Dham Vrindavan in the year 1739 C.E. These deities have been served here since then. In Jaipur however a counterpart (pratibhu) of the deity was installed.

Some devotees are under the impression that the Deities of Radhadamodar in the Radhadamodar Temple in Vrndavan are not the original Deities of Srila Jiva Goswami. Some think that the original Deities now reside in Jaipur. However, this is not a fact.

In 1670, when the Muslim fanatic Aurangazeb invaded Sri Vrndavana, he planned to destroy many temples and deface the Deities there. For this reason the principle Deities of Vraja were moved to the safe confines of the city of Jaipur in Rajasthan under the auspices of the Rajput kings. Most of the Deities remained there, such as Govindadeva, Gopinatha and Madana-mohana.

Vimana, Ancient Indian Plane.jpg
Vimana, Ancient Indian Plane.

They can be found under Hinduism, Astrophysics,Science.

The description of aircrafts are found in Hindu Ancient texts, The Vedas, Ramayana,  Mahabharata and the Eighteen Puranas.

What is now Iran and Afghanistan were a part of indian Empire and Kandhari , Mother of the Kauravas and Sakuni were from Kandhahar, then called Kaandharra Kingdom.

Mahabharata mentions the use of Aircrafts, more specifically while speaking of Arjuna when he conquered Kandhaara and beyond.

He is reported to have fought with Aliens who came in Vimanas and Arjuna had one of his own granted by his father Indra.

It transpires that the troops of the US in Afghanistan found the remains of a Vimana and eight soldiers disappeared.

This caused  all European leaders to  Afghanistan.

The information was prepared by the Intelligence Arm of Russia, SVR, and placed before  to Vladimir Putin.

Read the story.

A peculiar report prepared for Prime Minister Putin by Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) circulating in the Kremlin today states that German Chancellor Angela Merkel has become the latest in a growing line of Western leaders to make a ‘surprise’ visit to Afghanistan this month and follows visits by United States President Obama (December 3rd), British Prime Minister David Cameron (December 7th) and French President Nicolas Sarkozy (December 8th).

Only Sarkozy’s trip, this report says, was concealed as he was already in India on a state visit when ‘rushed’ by a US Military aircraft to the Afghan war zone.

What caused the sudden rush of these most powerful leaders of the Western World to go to Afghanistan, this report continues, was to directly view the discovery by US Military scientists of what is described as a “Vimāna” entrapped in a “Time Well” that has already caused the “disappearance” of at least 8 American Soldiers trying to remove it from the cave it has been hidden in for the past estimated 5,000 years.

From the ancient accounts found in the Sanskrit epic The Mahabharata, we know that a Vimāna [photo bottom left] measured twelve cubits in circumference, with four strong wheels. Apart from its ‘blazing missiles’, The Mahabharata records the use of its other deadly weapons that operated via a circular ‘reflector’. When switched on, it produced a ‘shaft of light’ which, when focused on any target, immediately ‘consumed it with its power’.

To the “Time Well” encasing the Vimāna, this report continues, it appears to be an electromagnetic radiation-gravity field first postulated by Albert Einstein as theUnified Field Theory and long rumored to be behind the infamous American World War II experiment in teleportation called the Philadelphia Experiment that in 1943, like the events occurring in Afghanistan today, likewise, caused the sudden “disappearance” of US Soldiers….

 

The seemingly “perpetual” power source to this mysterious “Time Well”, this SVR report says, appears to be based on the technology of Edward Leedskalnin, who claimed to have discovered the “Secret Knowledge of the Ancients” and from 1923-1951 “single-handedly and secretly” carved over 1,100 tons of coral rock by an unknown process that created one of the World’s most mysterious accomplishments known as the Coral Castle.

Most intriguing of all about this report is its stating that not just any Vimāna has been discovered, but from the ancient writings contained in the cave where it was discovered, it claims that its “rightful owner” is the ancient prophet Zoroaster,who was the founder of arguably one of the most important religions of all time called Zoroastrianism….

 

The vimana found in Afghanistan is reported to be an estimated 5,000 years old. It is said to be protected by a strange energy barrier that is preventing troops from extracting the vimana.

From the ancient accounts found in the Sanskrit epic The Mahabharata, we know that a Vimana measured twelve cubits in circumference, with four strong wheels. Apart from its ‘blazing missiles’, The Mahabharata records the use of its other deadly weapons that operated via a circular ‘reflector’. When switched on, it produced a ‘shaft of light’ which, when focused on any target, immediately ‘consumed it with its power’.

Obama Carries Hanuman In Pocket


Indians, as a hangover of British legacy and English, tend to give credence to things endorsed by the fair-skinned, be it their own Scriptures, The Vedas or about their Temples.

They need a Max Mueller to remind them about the greatness of the Vedas, though he was Missionary bent on disinformation about Hinduism.

I am providing the following information in the hope that some Westophiles( If some can write as Anglophiles, I can write Westophile) and Sely syled Rationalists like Karunanidhi and Veeramani,would think twice before ridiculing Hanuman .

 

President Barack Obama carries a small statue of Lord Hanuman as his lucky charm, since his days as a candidate for the US Presidency.

Obama Carries Hanuman as his Lucky charm.image.jpg
US President Obama Carries Hanuman as his Lucky charm.

A recent photo posted on Time’s White House Photo of the Day collection shows the first ever Black-American nominee of a major US party for the Presidential elections carries with him a bracelet belonging to an American soldier deployed in Iraq, a gambler’s lucky chit, a tiny monkey god and tiny Madonna and child.

That “tiny monkey god,” of course, appears to be a statue of the Hindu monkey god, Hanuman, says the posting but editors and the photographer has not identified it as such.’

Hanuman Idol for Obama.

Indians Present Hanuman Idol to President Obama.Image.jpg
Indians Present Hanuman Idol to President Obama.

A group of Indians are planning to present a statue of the revered Indian monkey God, Hanuman, to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

The group decided to order the idol after they read a magazine report saying that Mr Obama carried a good luck ‘monkey king’ charm.

They say that a Barack Obama victory would be good for India.

Hindus revere monkeys which they believe are descendents of the monkey God Hanuman.

The two-foot tall, 15kg gold-polished, brass idol has been made as a present for Mr Obama because “he will be good for India if he becomes the next president,” according to Brij Mohan Bhama, leader of the group.

Mr Bhama belongs to the ruling Congress party and runs a textile mill in the western city of Mumbai.

* I understand that this has been delivered to Obama.

Sumangali Prarathanai Hoovili Habba Procedure


Two essential ceremonies are conducted in Brahmin Households in the South.

These are followed as a More than as one sanctioned by Sruthi or even Smriti.

Pudavai Kalam, Sumangali Prarthanai.Image.jpg
Pudavai Kalam, Sumangali Prarthanai.

More is a Group of practices followed by a specific group rather than as a matter of personal choice.

These are followed in the South of India, in the States of Tamil Nadu,Karnataka, Kerala and Andhra.

One is Samaradhanai and the other is Sumangali Prarathanai.

Samaradhanai is conducted before or after an auspicious occasion like Ayush Homa, Upanayana, Pilgrimage , Marriage.

This is conducted for any auspicious occasion.

This is conducted either before or after the event .

In Samaradhanai , Family Deity is worshiped at Home and people are fed.

In Sri Vaishnava Sampradaya, this is called Dhadhiyaarathanai.

In those case where people are not sure of their Family Deity, the Pooja is offered to Lord Subrahmanya, in the case of Iyers, and in the case of Sri Vaishnavas, Lord Balaji.

The other ceremony is the Sumangali Prarthanai.

This again is a custom practiced and it does not find a reference in the Sruthi or Smriti.

This function is more of sentiments practiced in the Family.

This has to be performed, as a thumb rule, following the practices of the ancestors.

While it is not advisable to start this practice if it has not been practiced by the ancestors, it is equally essential note that the practice is not to be discontinued if it had been in vogue in the Family.

This is a function meant for women, married with Husband being alive.

This has to be performed once a year for one Gothra and more than once in year should not be conducted.

Tuesdays and Saturdays are to be avoided.

Fridays during the Waxing of the Moon is advisable.

Wednesdays/Thursdays are also permissible.

Ashtami,Navami Thithis are normally avoided.

Panchami is preferable.

In this function the Blessings of the departed Sumangalis, those whose deaths precede the death of their husbands are sought and those who died young before getting married.

Generally, if the daughter is getting married, the event is done before the marriage.

In the case of a son getting married, this is performed after the marriage, with the Daughter-in-law conducting it.

7 ladies and 2 young girls (preferably below the age of 10) are invited to participate in the function, partake the feast and receive thamboolam.

 

The total number of ladies should always be in Odd numbers.

The maximum number of ladies allowed normally is 11.

Minimum is 5 +2.

Advisable that unmarried Girl is about Eight Years as it is believed that she represents the Devi.

 

 

The ladies who sit for the puja represent all the women of the family who are no more alive.

The function is presided over by the elderly lady members of the family.

Usually the kartha is a sumangali from the family.

The gifts to the ladies vary among families and depend on the financial status of the kartha, very similar to the nandi sradham.

The menu for the feast is also very similar.

9 yds saree in silk or cotton is be bought along with a Blouse piece.

The preferable colours are red, yellow and green.

Invite and procedure.

Those to be invited, kumkum, haldi, oil, shikakai, vasanai podi  are to offered at thier Home a day earlier

On the morning of the day, wash the 9 yds saree & a blouse piece with madi (shuddam)after bath & dry.

The Person conducting the Sumangali Prarthana should not take an oil bath.

Kalyana kolam/Rangoli in the entrance, and semman & tie “ mavilai” at Home.

For the pudavai kalam – put a square kolam, (padi kolam), over that keep a palakai & put kolam on that.

In front of that, put a kolam to keep the elai.

On both sides of the Pudavai(Sareee) kalam put kolam for 2 elais , beside for elais facing North, East is preferred next

Fold the dry saree so that the “ pallu” comes on the top.

The corner of the same should face N. Fold the blouse & keep on that.

On the saree keep the following:

A small mirror
Oru kavuli ( 100 no:s) vethalai
Plenty of Kali paakku
Plenty of urundai manjal
Nalangu manjal – (mix of haldi and chunnambu) on a vethalai
12 bananas
10 yds malli, kathambam or roses
Maruthani on a vethalai
A ball of haldi & water on a vethalai
Chullu vella urndai in a vethalai.
A gold chain.

.
In a “ kudam” – water to which cardamom powder and  dry ginger powder are added.
One sombu( Vessel for storing water) of panakam
One sombu of neer mor.
Coins to give ladies with vethalai pakku
On the kolam in front of pudavai kalam, put double nuni elai, one overlapping the other.

Nuni should face North.

On other kolams, place elais and Water for Drinking.

Start before or after Rahu kalam.

When the ladies arrive give them manjal mixed with water, to wash their legs, apply  and welcome them.
Then give them chandanam(sandalwood paste), kumkum & flowers & ask them to take their seat near the elais.(plantain Leaf)
Offer all items on menu to the pudavai kalam first & hthen serve clockwise to other elais.

Rooparkanrahasya ,Radar Of Ancient Hindus Astronaut Diet Algae


I have written that Ancient Indians knew of Aviation and Sage Bharadwaja has  written Treatise on Vaimanika Shastra, The Science of Aviation.

I have also posted an article with Diagrams as to how an Indian research scholar Mr.Talpade designed and flew a plane .

In the Science Congress,Anand J Bodas, a retired principal of a pilot training facility,  who had researched in the subject presented a paper in the Meet.

There are references to Aviation in the Rig Veda.

Flying Machines of Ancient India.Image.gif
Vimanas, Flying Machines of Ancient India.

“The ancient Hindus could navigate the air, and not only navigate it but fight battles in it like so many war-eagles, combating for the domination of the clouds. To be so perfect in aeronautics they must have known all the arts and sciences relating to the science, including the strata and currents of the atmosphere, the relative temperature, humidity, density and specific gravity of the various gases…..” ( Col. Olcott in a lecture in Allahabad in 1881.)

Refrence to Avitaion in the Vedas.

O royal skilled engineer, construct sea-boats, propelled on water by our experts, and airplanes, moving and flying upward, after the clouds that reside in the mid-region, that fly as the boats move on the sea, that fly high over and below the watery clouds. Be thou, thereby, prosperous in this world created by the Omnipresent God, and flier in both air and lightening. (Yajur Veda, 10.19)

The Rig Veda, the oldest document of the human race includes references to the following modes of transportation:

  • Jalayan – a vehicle designed to operate in air and water. (Rig Veda 6.58.3)
  • Kaara- Kaara- Kaara- a vehicle that operates on ground and in water. (Rig Veda 9.14.1)
  • Tritala- Tritala- Tritala- a vehicle consisting of three stories. (Rig Veda 3.14.1)

Agastya’s Designs.

Agastya and Bharadwaja had developed the lore of aircraft construction.

The “Agastya Samhita” gives us Agastya`s descriptions of two types of aeroplanes.

The first is a “chchatra” (umbrella or balloon) to be filled with hydrogen.

The process of extracting hydrogen from water is described in elaborate detail and the use of electricity in achieving this is clearly stated.

This was stated to be a primitive type of plane, useful only for escaping from a fort when the enemy had set fire to the jungle all around. Hence the name, “Agniyana”.

The second type of aircraft mentioned is somewhat on the lines of the parachute.

It could be opened and shut by operating chords.

This aircraft has been described as “vimanadvigunam” i.e. of a lower order than the regular aeroplane.

Agastya talks of Dry Battery, Method of Storing the Power,how to prepare the Coolants,and how to Control the thrust of the Machine.

Please read my post on Agastya and Dry Batteries.

Aeronautics or Vaimaanika Shastra is a part of Yantra Sarvasva of Bharadwaja.

This is also known as Brihadvimaana Shastra.

Vaimaanikashastra deals about aeronautics in detail.

The knowledge of aeronautics is described in Sanskrit in 100 sections, eight chapters, 500 principles and 3000 slokas.

Great sage Bharadwaja explained the construction of aircraft and way to fly it in air, on land, on water and use the same aircraft like a sub-marine.

Types of Aircrafts.

The aircraft is classified into three types- Mantrika, Tantrika and Kritaka, to suit different yugas or eras.

In kritayuga, it is said, Dharma was well established.

The people of that time had the divinity to reach any place using their Ashtasiddhis.

The aircraft used in Tretayuga are called Mantrikavimana, flown by the power of hymns (mantras).

Twenty-five varieties of aircraft including Pushpaka Vimana belong to this era.

The aircraft used in Dwaparayuga were called Tantrikavimana, flown by the power of tantras.

Fifty six varieties of aircraft including Bhairava and Nandaka belong to this era.

The aircraft used in Kaliyuga, the on-going yuga, are called Kritakavimana, flown by the power of engines.

Twenty-five varieties of aircraft including “Sundara”, “Shukana” and “Rukma” belong to this era.

 

Bharadwaja states that there are thirty-two secrets of the science of aeronautics.

Some are advanced designs which are beyond us now.

For instance the secret of “para shabda graaha”, i.e. a cabin for listening to conversation in another plane, has been explained by elaborately describing an electrically worked sound-receiver that did the trick.

Manufacture of different types of instruments and putting them together to form an aircraft are also described.

Ahaaraadhikarana section deals with the food habits of a pilot.

Academy of Sanskrit Research in Melkote, near Mandya, had been commissioned by the Aeronautical Research Development Board, New Delhi, to take up a one-year study, ‘Non-conventional approach to Aeronautics’, on the basis of Vaimanika Shastra.

As a result of the research, a glass-like material which cannot be detected by radar has been developed by Prof Dongre, a research scholar of Benaras Hindu University.

A plane coated with this unique material cannot be detected using radar.

The special coating has been explained by Agastya in Agastya Samhita.

Diet for Astronauts.

Special diet and uniform made of algae for ancient pilots

It is also said that the diet of the pilots who flew the ancient planes was unique and consisted of milk of cows, buffalos and sheep.

This special diet helped them fly the aircrafts with much more ease and they could feel connected with their planes.

A special Suit made of underwater grown plants  helped them operate their airplanes.

 

Advanced Technologies.

Dr. Roberto Pinotti asked the delegates to examine in detail the Hindu texts instead of dismissing all the Vimana descriptions and traditions as mere myth.  “The importance of such studies and investigations could prove to be shocking for today’s man because the existence of flying devices beyond mythology can only be explained with a forgotten superior civilization on earth,” he said. Pointing out that Indian Gods and heroes fought in the skies using piloted vehicles with terrible weapons.


Dr. Pinotti said they were similar to modern jet propelled flying machines. 32 secrets: He said certain descriptions of the Vimanas seemed ‘too detailed and technical in nature to be labeled as myth.’ He cited various texts to show there were 32 secrets relating to the operation of Vimanas, some of which could be compared to modern day use of radar, solar energy and photography. Quoting from‘Vymanika Shastra’ he said the ancient flying devices of India were made from special heat absorbing metals named ‘Somaka, Soundalike and Mourthwika.’

 

He said the text also discussed the seven kinds of mirror and lenses installed aboard for defensive and offensive uses. The so-called ‘Pinjula Mirror’ offered a sort of ‘visual shield’ preventing the pilots from being blinded by ‘evil rays’ and the weapon ‘Marika‘ used to shoot enemy aircraft ‘does not seem too different from what we today called laser technology,’ he said.

According to the Italian expert, the ‘principles of Page 1 propulsion as far as the descriptions were concerned, might be defined as electrical and chemical but solar energy was also involved’. For instance, the ‘Tripura Vimana’ mentioned in ‘Vymanika Shastra’ was a large craft operated by ‘motive power generated by solar rays,’ Dr. Pinotti said, adding ‘its elongated form was surely much closer to that of a modern blimp.’

14.   Shakuna Vimana: Vertical Section (Crosswise)

Sophisticated design: According to Dr. Pinotti, the huge ‘Shakuna Vimana’ described in the text ‘might be defined as a cross between a plane and a rocket of our times and its design might remind one of today’s space shuttle.’ ‘Surely, it expresses the most complex and sophisticated aeronautical design among all the other descriptions of Vimanas mentioned in the ‘Vymanika Shastra,’ he said.

 

He described the author of the treatise ‘Vymanika Shastra‘ as a man ‘attempting to explain an advanced technology.’ Dr. Pinotti, who has made an exhaustive study of the history of Indian astronautics, said another text, Samaraanganasutraadhaara had 230 stanzas devoted to the principles of building Vimanas and their use in peace and war. He said ancient Aryans knew the use of the element ‘fire’ as could be seen from their ‘Astra‘ weapons that included Soposamhara (flame belching missile), Prasvapna (which caused sleep) and four kinds of Agni Astras that traveled in sheets of flame and produced thunder. He said the car that was supposed to go up to Suryamandal (solar system) and the Naksatramandala (stellar system) cannot be dismissed as a myth because of the ‘technical nature’ of its description. Dr. Pinotti said depictions of space travel, total destruction by incredible weapons and the fact that Vimanas resembled modern unidentified flying objects would suggest that India had a ‘superior but forgotten civilization.’ ‘In the light of this, we think it will be better to examine the Hindu texts’ and subject the descriptive models of Vimanas to more scientific scrutiny,’ he said.

Air pollution in China.Image.jpeg
Air pollution in China. 26 January 2013. With these levels of smog (this photo is from a couple weeks ago) it’s no wonder people want to know what they’re going to be breathing before they step outside.

They wrote in Tamil and they have dealt with all subjects.

They have the ability of clairvoyance, Clairaudience ,Kinetasis,Telepathy,Transmigating into another body.

One such Siddha is Kuthambai Siddhar.

He has stated in one of his Poems about environment Pollution and Ozone layer in the atmosphere .

He talks about the effect of Ozone layer on Earth and the people.

In the following Poem he says that the increase in  Air Pollution causes Ozone layer imbalance  in the atmosphere  and this shall cause breathing and Lung related problems for the Chinese.

One must remember the Siddhar dates to 11 Century AD.

The Poem In Tamil.

சீனத்தோர் சோகங் கூடும்

Pollution In China.

  1. According to the Chinese Ministry of Health, industrial pollution has made cancer China’s leading cause of death.
  2. Every year, ambient air pollution alone killed hundreds of thousands of citizens.
  3. 500 million people in China are without safe and clean drinking water.
  4. Only 1% of the country’s 560 million city dwellers breathe air considered safe by the European Union, because all of its major cities are constantly covered in a “toxic gray shroud”. Before and during the 2008 Summer Olympics, Beijing was “frantically searching for a magic formula, a meteorological deus ex machina, to clear its skies for the 2008 Olympics.”
  5. Lead poisoning or other types of local pollution continue to kill many Chinese children.
  6. A large section of the ocean is without marine life because of massive algal blooms caused by the high nutrients in the water.
  7. The pollution has spread internationally: sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides fall as acid rain on Seoul, South Korea, and Tokyo; and according to the Journal of Geophysical Research, the pollution even reaches Los Angeles in the USA.
  8. The Chinese Academy of Environmental Planning in 2003 had an internal and unpublished report which estimated that 300,000 people die each year from ambient air pollution, mostly of heart disease and lung cancer.
  9. Chinese environmental experts in 2005 issued another report, estimating that annual premature deaths attributable to outdoor air pollution were likely to reach 380,000 in 2010 and 550,000 in 2020.
  10. A 2007 World Bank report conducted with China’s national environmental agency found that “…outdoor air pollution was already causing 350,000 to 400,000 premature deaths a year. Indoor pollution contributed to the deaths of an additional 300,000 people, while 60,000 died from diarrhea, bladder and stomach cancer and other diseases that can be caused by water-borne pollution.” World Bank officials said “China’s environmental agency insisted that the health statistics be removed from the published version of the report, citing the possible impact on ‘social stability'”.

Shiva Mohini Black Peaks Whitesands Yana Asteroid ShivaTemple


It is curious to note that whether it is made or a natural one, the hindu temples are unique.

It is a moot point whether the spots that occur naturally have legends been attributed to them.

But it seems that one can not weave legends around a country as big as India, with not less than 22 official languages and about 1350 Dialects, each with a distinct culture .

Bhairaveswara temple, Yana.Image.jpg
Bhairaveswara temple, Yana.

One such amazing temple is that of ord Shiva  at Yana, near Sirsi, Karnataka.

The place has two natural peaks , both black, yet one finds the sand white.

Bairaveshwara , Mohini pekas, Yana.Image.jpg
Bairaveshwara , Mohini pekas, Yana.

In the Bairaveaswara temple in the peak, one finds a Swayambhu Linga of Lord Shiva.

One has to go around  the peaks by holding on to the cave walls ,when black dust attaches  to your hands.

The Mohini peak is nearby.

This is the place, as the legend has it,where Bhasmasura was turned into ashes by Lord Mahavishnu in His Avatar as Mohini, to save Lord Shiva who granted a Boon to Bhasmasura that what ever he touched would turn into ashes.

The Legend.

Bhasmasura, by austere penance, obtained a boon from lord Shiva. This boon made it so that when Bhasmasura placed his hand over any one’s head, he would burn them up and turn them into ashes (bhasma). It is further narrated that, in order to test his powers, Bhasmasura wanted to place his hands on his patron Lord Shiva’s head. He chased Shiva, which unnerved Shiva and prompted him to move from his heavenly abode to earth to seek the help of Lord Vishnu. Vishnu transformed himself to help Shiva, adopting the form of beautiful damsel named Mohini who enticed Bhasmasura with her beauty. Bhasmsura was quite infatuated by Mohini, and agreed to a challenge she issued for a dance competition.

During the dance competition, Mohini cleverly performed a dance bhang (“pose”) with hand over head. Without realizing the gravity of this act, the demon king also placed his hand over his head and perished by the fire of his own hands, he was converted into ashes. It is believed that the fire that emanated during this act was so intense that the limestone formations in the Yana area were blackened. The loose black soil or ash seen around the two large rock formations in the area are cited as proof of the legend by devotees who see them as due to the fire and that ashes produced by Bhasmasura death. The two hillocks are also named for this event: the tall peak being Bhairaveshwara Shikhara (“Shiva’s hill”), and the smaller peak, a few steps down below, being Mohini Shikhara (“Mohini’s hill”) where an idol of goddess Parvathi is installed.

Yana (Kannada: ಯಾಣ) is a village located in forests of the Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka, India which is known for the unusual rock formations (Karst) or (Asteroid). It is located in the Sahyadri mountain range of the Western Ghats, about 60 kilometres (37 mi) from Karwar port, 40 kilometres (25 mi) from Sirsi, and 31 kilometres (19 mi) from Kumta. The two unique rockoutcrops near the village are a tourist attraction and easily approachable by a small trek through 0.5 kilometres (0.31 mi) of thick forests from the nearest road head.

Yana is famous for these two massive rock outcrops known as the Bhairaveshwara Shikhara and the Mohini Shikhara (“Shikhara” means “hill”). The huge rocks are composed of solid black, crystalline Karst limestone. Bhairaveshwara Shikhara is 120 metres (390 ft) in height, while the Mohini Shikhara, which is smaller, is 90 metres (300 ft) in height. Yana is also well known as a pilgrimage centre because of the cave temple below the Bhairaveshwara Shikhara where a Swayambhu (“self manifested”, or “that which is created by its own accord”) linga has been formed. Water drips from the roof over the linga, adding to the sanctity of the place.

The Rocks.

The two rock monoliths or hillocks, surrounded by thick forests and streams, rise sharply above the surrounding area near Yana village. They are part of the Sahyadri hill range in the Western Ghats in South India and give a conspicuous identity to Yana and the entire hill range. In the first rock hill, Bhairaveshwara Shikhara, there is 3 metres (9.8 ft) wide opening in the rock face that leads into a cave. Within the cave, there is a bronze statue of ‘Chandika’, an incarnation of the goddess Durga. The cave has a swayambu (“self manifested”) Shiva Linga (“symbol of Shiva”) over which spring water trickles from the roof of the tunnel overhead. Emerging as a small stream, called the Chandihole, it eventually merges with the Aghanashini River at Uppinapattana. Local people interprete this as the emergence of the a river, Gangodbhava (emerging Ganges). There are about 61 limestone rock structures, within a radius of 3 km, of which two are of notable size.[6]

The natural creation of the Shiva linga in the cave is attributed by scientists to the geological phenomenon formed by stalactites and stalagmites in limestone formations .

 

How To Reach.

The road distances on the NH 17 connecting Yana village are: Kumta – 25 kilometres (16 mi), Sirsi – 40 kilometres (25 mi), Gokarna – 52 kilometres (32 mi) and Hubli – 142 kilometres (88 mi). The nearest rail head is at Kumta, and the nearest airport is Hubli. The road fromBangalore is via Sirsi – a distance of 410 kilometres (250 mi) by National Highway 4 (NH 4). The best approach to Yana is from Kumta or Sirsi. A road deviation between these two towns on the highway is near the village of Kathagala. There is also an alternate route to reach Sirsi from Yana via Sundholle and Anegundi. A single lane road was constructed in the thick forest which reduces the trek-length 0.5 kilometres (0.31 mi) and drawing more number of tourists.

Space Ship Dry Batteries Production Agastya Samhita


There are people who say many Indians suffer from the ‘Hinduism told you so’ syndrome, that is people declare that after a scientific truth is established or a new technology is developed people say that this has been stated by Hinduism thousands of years ago.

On the other side we have people saying that Hinduism is non sense and that people attribute things ans science to Hinduism where it is not intended.

I belong to none of these groups.

I try to read the original text or the best translations when the texts are unavailable and post such information that is credible and can stand the test of what we now call Science.

Those who cry that people say that Hinduism’ said so’, must read th texts and follow what has been stated to find out the truth.

One such easily verifiable information on Space Ship design. Propellants and electroplating is found in the Agastya Samhita by Sage Agastya.

Place a well-cleaned copper plate in an earthenware vessel. Cover it first by copper sulfate and then moist sawdust. After that put a mercury-amalgamated-zinc sheet on top of an energy known by the twin name of Mitra-Varuna. Water will be split by this current into Pranavayu and Udanavayu. A chain of one hundred jars is said to give a very active and effective force.

By the way, mitra is cathode and varuna is what we call anode today, Pranavayu is oxygen and udanavayu is hydrogen.

Gayatri Mantra Produces Sound Waves Hoax And Real Study


In the year 1969, when I was studying in the Vivekananda College,Chennai, I had a professor of Indian Philosophy, Dr.Radha Krishnan.

He demonstrated an experiment on the Mantras,

He had learned Veda Pandit to recite the Beeja Mantras.

Effect of Gayntri Mantra on Human Body.Image.jpg
Effect of Gayntri Mantra.

The Mantra on Ganesha produced an outline of Ganesha as we see Him in Temples appeared on the TV Screen, though the details were not very distinctively seen.

Similar results were for Devi and Subrahmanya and Rudra.

But when the Gayatri Mantra was recited, the picture tube blew up.

We left it at that.

What is certain is that the Mantras unleash energy, at highest levels.

I had posted an article as to how the first two lines of The Purusha Suktha produce electricity and a Bangalore based Company has developed the technology.

And there are reports that Shiva Linga spewed DNA.

Consider the points of similarity between D.N.A. and Shiva.

It is well known that Shiva is Ugra and his name also is Ugra. Ugra means an acid. D.N.A. is also an acid. Vedanta calls that Hiranyagarbha as Sutratma.

Sutratma means an Atma in the form of Sutra i.e. a thread or filament.

The modern science admits that a DNA molecule is really like a thread or filament.

“In a single human germ-cell this filament of DNA is about one metre in length”, says Watson in his book ‘The Double Helix’.

The Yoga-science calls it Mahan, the great. It is really great because it is present in all the living things.

Its molecular weight is one million, so the scientists call it ‘great’. It has no birth. It develops from itself. DNA also duplicates, that means develops from itself. Mr. J. D. Watson describes this as ‘self replication’.(Ramani’s blog)

 

The Gayatri Mantra is the most potent of all Mantras.

I reproduce abstarct of some research on the Gayatri Mantra.

 

Gayatri Mantra – A Study

A Dissertation Submitted By Neha Racca

Under the guidance of Prof. N.V.C.Swamy & Dr. H.R.Nagendra

Abstract: The Gayatri occurs in the Rig, Yajur and Sama Vedas. It is a prayer to the sun, supposed to be recited ritualistically at dawn, midday and dusk. Even though the Mantra is known as the Gayatri, its real name is Savitri Mantra. There are thousands of Mantras in the Vedas set to Gayatri Chandas. However, the Savitri Mantra is so famous that it has come to be associated with the Chandas itself.

Here in this report I have tried to provide a bird’s eye-view of the subject. This work gives a brief summary of the various aspects of Gayatri Mantra.

The report starts with a brief description of Mantra yoga and japa, which includes Gayatri Mantra as japa. This is followed by the description of the Gayatri as personal mother and its inner meaning. Then the story of Vinvamitra is mentioned who was the rishi to whom Gayatri was first revealed.

The most basic of all samskaras namely upanayana and the significance of the sacred thread is given in detail. The use of Gayatri Mantra in the form of meditation and as the greatest step towards illumination is included in this report.

Then comes the Gayatri sadhana and how one can practice Gayatri meditation and the technique of japa with the beauty of the powerful kriya while chanting the Gayatri Mantra. The report closes with the benefits of the Gayatri Mantra in various aspects such as psychological, physical, spiritual etc. and tells us the way to get rid of our general problems.

An attempt has been made in this report to cover most of the major aspects of Gayatri Mantra and the different types of Gayatris to help in different ways. Still I believe since it is a very vast subject I must have left some aspects of the greatest Mantra Gayatri, but it gives almost everything in brief about our earliest and traditional Mantra ie. Gayatri Mantra and sandhya vandana.

Summary & Conclusion:  

  1. Present study was designed to examine the possibilities of influencing the REG by Gayatri Mantra chanting (GM) in contrast to Random Thinking (RT) sessions in normal males: (a) before and after GM session & (b) before and During the GM sessions and (c) during and post sessions.

  2. Present study further examined whether GM can enhance the capacity of individuals who can significantly influence the REG in comparison to Random Thinking.

  3. Thirty males in the age group 18 to 25 years participated in Gayatri Mantra chanting (GM) on the first day and Random Thinking (RT) session at the same time on the second day and repeated them alternately for two more days to check the reproducibility of the results.

  4. The pre, during and post sessions of GM and RT for 10 minutes each having same number of trials (ie. 10). The output display of Random Event Generator (REG) on a laptop computer was used to assess the influence of the state of mind associated with the above sessions.

  5. The PRE – PRE comparisons show that pre-data do not differ significantly (p>0.1) between the two events showing a matching of initial data in both the events, as done for the base line comparison.

  6. The pre-post data showed no significance in both the sessions although there was significant change in set 2 for GM session.

  7. The PRE vs DURING data showed highly significant changes in GM group, though there was little significance found in RT group also in set 2.

  8. The number of episodes in which the REG could be influenced significantly (mean value>101.00) was analysed next. The results showed that there was a highly significant increase in the PRE vs DURING data of GM. There was no significant increase but a decrease in the PRE vs DURING of RT, DURING vs POST in both GM and RT sessions showed no significance but, PRE Vs POST data showed highly significant decrease in the RT session compared to the GM session for both the set of experiment.

  9. There was significant change between GM and RT sessions. While during gayatri mantra chanting the values increased, it decreased in the random thinking sessions. This shows significance between the two groups, during the sessions, when analyzed for both the data. However, we can see significant change in the pre-post session also in set 2 when analyzed for the all values.

The results indicate a distinct possibility of enhancement of the power of influencing the REG in Gayatri Mantra Chanting (GM) sessions compared to Random Thinking (RT) sessions.

 

Study of Gayatri Mantra Effects.

Aim:

The aim was to evaluate the effects of Gayatri mantra (GM) chanting on attention as measured by digit-letter substitution task (DLST).

Settings and Design:

School setting and self as control study design.

Materials and Methods:

Subjects consisted of 60 school students included (boys = 30 and girls = 30) in the age range of 12-14 years, who were trained for chanting GM for 5 days. They were assessed on DLST immediately before and after two sessions (i) GM chanting (10 min) and (ii) Poem line (PL) chanting with an equal duration (10 min). Fifty percent of participants performed GM chanting and remaining on the PL recitation on day 6. The orders of the sessions were reversed on day 7.

Statistical Analysis Used:

Repeated measure analysis of variance with Bonferroni adjustment used.

Results:

Both sessions showed significant improvement in the total and net score of DLST. The magnitude of net score improvement was greater after GM (21.67%) compared to PL (4.85%). Female group had found better performance following GM compared to PL chanting.

Conclusions:

Both GM and PL led to improvement in performance, as assessed by DLST. But the influence of GM had significantly higher than PL in net score of female group.

When real scientific evidence is proving the efficacy of Mantras and Hinduism is being validated by scientific methods, though some facts mentioned by Hinduism are not verifiable because of the nature of Facts, some get carried awy and produce information that is incorrect.

These interpretations of Hinduism bring disrepute to Hiinduism.

For example read this story.

The said author seems to have written no books on the subject nor are there references to the study.

“Dr.Howard Steingeril,
an american scientist, collected Mantras, Hymns and invocations from all over the world and tested their strength in his Physiology Laboratory…

Hindus’ Gayatri Mantra produced 110,000 sound waves /second…

This was the highest and was found to be the most powerful hymn in the world.
Through the combination of sound or sound waves of a particular frequency, this Mantra is claimed to be capable of developing specific spiritual potentialities.
The Hamburg university initiated research into the efficacy of the Gayatri Mantra both on the mental and physical plane of CREATION.’

Comment on this,

This appears to be a hoax. Search internet for Dr Howards Steingeril and you will find no papers, books, and not even a mention of his name other than where this email is mentioned. Moreover, what is sound waves/seconds? Hz x 60? If so, this mantra produces sound frequency of 6,600,000Hz = 66000 KHz = 66 MHz. This falls within Ultrasound range typically used for medical purposes. More importantly, human ear can sense sounds between 20Hz and 20000Hz. Since the mantra can be heard by human ear, the sound frequency is clearly less than 20KHz.

There are no instruments or non-human elements to the sound produced by this chanting, so if this were to be true, the same source (human voice) has to be producing sound at two distinct frequencies at the same time. That is a scientific impossibility.’

However I am of the opinion that the energy part is true but it is yet to be proven empirically.

Vedas on Consciousness


Recently a friend of mine, who is a leading Neuro-physician. with whom I was conversing, the topic of Consciousness came up.

Medically speaking Coma is a State where one loses the Cognitive ability, as observed by the others.

Essential bodily functions take place.

Being Consciousness and Bliss.Image.jpg
Sat Chit Anandam

‘A coma is a prolonged state of unconsciousness. During a coma, a person is unresponsive to his or her environment. The person is alive and looks like he or she is sleeping. However, unlike in a deep sleep, the person cannot be awakened by any stimulation, including pain.'(webmd)

Herein lies the issue.

One notices consciousness, like air  only when it is absent.

Some questions.

Is Life Consciousness?

If so, medically speaking when one is in Coma,when one’s consciousness is absent, he is said be alive;then what is Life?

One is not aware of consciousness while in deep sleep, or even during the Dreaming State.

Where does it go then?

We recollect, some times, what we have dreamed.

It is said be, because of Consciousness.

How does this happen?

In Psychology, there is a term which normally does not make sense.

The term is ‘Unconscious’

How does one say he has unconscious state in his make up, when the very term indicates you are not Conscious of it.

It is said so because it is inferred and accounts for psychological activities of the Human being.

Then what is Mind?

What is Brain?

The activity of the Brain is Mind,(Science)

Activity of the Mind is Intellect, activity of the Intellect is Chitta(Indian Philosophy).

Yoga soeaks of this in the first Sutra,

Yoga;chitta Vruthi Nirodhithaha’

The Cessation of the modification of the Chitta is Yoga.

Mind is like a CPU , it receives sensations /Data.

No factual or judgemental pronunciations are made.

The Judgemental portion or the factual certification is made by Buddhi(Intellect).

How does Buddhi pass judgements or values to an even or sensations.

It is by the directions of the Chitta, Consciousness.

Consciousness in an attribute of Reality.

It is the Subject in the process of Cognition.

It is not an object of Cognition.

It can not be known or perceived by any thing other than by itself, Consciousness.

It is a Sate of Being.(Sat)

The state of Being has as its attributes Consciousness, which has Bliss or Ananda as its attribute.

Sat Chit and Ananda.

  • sat सत् (present participle); [Sanskrit root as , “to be“]: “Truth”, “Absolute Being”, “a palpable force of virtue and truth”. Sat describes an essence that is pure and timeless, that never changes.
  • cit चित् (noun): “consciousness”, “true consciousness”, “to be consciousness of”, “to understand”, “to comprehend”.
  • ānanda आनन्द (noun): “bliss”,”true bliss”,”happiness” “joy”, “delight”, “pleasure”

“Sat-Chit-Ananda” or “Saccidānanda” is the Sanskrit compound form of the word, which can be translated in various ways:

  • “Eternal Consciousness Bliss”
  • “Absolute Consciousness Bliss”
  • “Consisting of existence and thought and joy

These attributes ae inseparable from each other.

These three together constitute the Attribute of Brahman.

Brahman is the Ultimate Reality.

It is inferred and is never an object of perception.

It is the Perceiver, the process of Perception and the Perceived.

Perception is removal of Nescience or removal of Ignorance, Avidya.

This Avidya is at the individual level.

At the Universal level it is called Maya.

The state of Being, Consciousness and Bliss are expressed as Sat Chit and Ananda in the Upanishads.

This is the interpretation of Advaita by Shankaracharya.

 

Prajgnam Brahma (Upanishad)

 

Brahman ,Reality is Consciousness.

The one wants to know what Mind or cognition is.

Cognition happens when consciousness illuminates.

Consciousness itself is Knowledge.

“Nirajanam Nishkriam Shantam Nirvadyam Niranjanam”(Shvetashwara Upanishad, 6/19)

It is not awareness per se.

Awareness is a part of Consciousness and awareness is not Consciousness.

Knowledge is awareness as made available by Consciousness.

How and why consciousness is selective in revealing Knowledge?

I shall be writing on this in a separate post.

The Upanishads on conciousness and Brahman.

 

That thou art.
(“You are Brahman”)
(Tat Tvam Asi)

The Self (the Soul) is Brahman.”
Sanskrit:
ayam atma brahma. (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4.4.5)

I am Brahman.”
Sanskrit: aham brahmasmi. (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 1.4.10)

Brahman is Consciousness.
Sanskrit: prajnanam brahma. (Aitareya Upanishad 3.1.3)

All this is Brahman.
Sanskrit: Sarvam khalvidam brahma. (Chandogya Upanishad 3.14.1)

All this is, indeed, Brahman. This Atman is Brahman.

This same Atman has four quarters. (Mandukya Upanishad 1.2) [The first three quarters correspond to the letters of AUM: 1 = A, 2 = U, 3 = M. The fourth quarter is silence.]

 

SAT (Existence)

In the beginning, my dear, this [universe] was Being (Sat) alone, one only without a second.”
(Chandogya Upanishad 6.2.1 also Aitareya Upanishad 1.1.1)

All this that we see in the world is Brahman.”
Sanskrit:
sarvam khalv idam brahma. (Chandogya Upanishad 3.14.1)

Brahman is Reality, Knowledge, and Infinity.
(Taittiriya Upanishad 2.1.3)

CHIT (Consciousness)

Brahman is Consciousness.
Sanskrit: prajnanam brahma. (Aitareya Upanishad 3.1.3)

ANANADA (Bliss)

Brahman is bliss (ananda).
(Taittiriya Upanishad 3.6.1)

 

“Brahman that is immediate and direct—the Self that is within all.”

“You cannot see That which is the Seer of seeing;
you cannot hear That which is the Hearer of hearing;
you cannot think of That which is the Thinker of thought;
you cannot know That which is the Knower of knowledge.
This is your Self, that is within all;
everything else but This is perishable.” (Br. Up. 3.4.2).

I will be posting more on this and the view of the other systems of indian Philosophy on consciousness.

Tenth Day Ceremony For The Departed Meaning


Hinduism prescribes elaborate rituals for the dead beginning from the day of burning the body till the 13th day when Subhasweekara or Auspiciousness in invited back Home.

These rituals are based on the belief that the Departed souls take rebirth and the Preta Sareera hovers around till the 12th Day.when the dead are respectfully moved to the ancestors, Pitrus.

It is the belief of the Hindus that one born to enjoy the fruits of actions one performs/ed; if Righteous deeds had been performed one enjoys happiness and sails through Life easily while Non Righteous acts bring in Unhappiness and misery when one lives.

In both the cases , the effects of the actions performed by one gets wiped out as one undergoes the experiences of Life.

In Hinduism the wages of Sin is Birth unlike Christianity and other Religions where the wages of Sin is death.

When one dies, the inert body , Sava is consigned to flames.

One becomes Sava when Consciousness leaves permanently, The Consciousness being an attribute of the Soul.

However the Sukshma Sareera, the body which one does not perceive, which surrounds one’s physical frame, remains.

The Physical frame made of he essence of food, Anna rasa dies.

But the Sukshma Sareera , which is the result of the actions one performs remain .

This sareera is like dust accumulated when action is performed.

This sukshma Sareera takes rebirth depending on the Nature of actions, Karma performed by the individual.

The Soul never dies.

Death Rite beind perfomed, Hinduism.Image.jpg
Death Rites Hindusim,

The Sukshma Sareera enters into human wombs, they are reported to be 83 Million different types of Female genital parts( Yoni Beda), according to Hinduism.

The Womb chosen at rebirth is determined in accordance with the actions performed.

So till such time, that is the Twelfth-day from the date of death, the preta Sareeera lingers , hovers around the place of Death and around the Home.

This Preta once it is released after the twelfth day is reborn;in such cases where no karmas or the dead performed rebirth still takes place;in this case the Reborn, in the new Life will have unexplained issues facing its new Life.

This is Pitru Dosha.

Another kind of Pitru Dosha is one that accrues when one does not perform the Rites for the departed.

This results in Pitru Saapa.

The Suksma Sreera, once it leaves the Pysical frame is called Preta and this during life has been nurtured by the essence of Food.

This has been enjoyed by it through the Physical frame.

Now that one is dead, the Preta sarera can not get Food for nurturing.

As it is yet to be released, till the Twelfth day(Sapindi Karana), it suffers.

To nurture it, the Tharpana is performed with sesame Seeds and water,the former substituting food, as sesame seeds, according to Hinduism, was the first to be created as Food, Water to quench Thirst.

It is also considered necessary to indicate the Preta that it would no longer get Food or water as it lacks the physical Frame.

As the Preta is finally elevated to the level of Pitrus on the Twelfth day,prior indication is given on the tenth day by way of offering huge quantities of food, without salt to wean away the Preta from food as it is believed that it would get disgusted with the huge quantity of food offered and that too with out Salt.

During the next two days , the preta is paid respects by a Brahmin in the ceremonies.

On the 12th day Sabindi karana is performed and the preta leaves.

On the thirteenth day Gruha yagna or Subha sweeakara is performed.

No Cremation Ground Devotees Not Allowed Taliparamba Shiva


Three is a Temple in Srivanchiyam where the Naivedya for Shiva is done after a corpse has been burnt in the Cremation ground in front of  the temple.

Please read my post  on this ‘Where Corpses Burn’.

Taliparamba Temple.jpg
Taliparamba Temple.

There is a Temple in Kerala where the Shiva Linga was ordered to be installed in a place where there is no cremation ground!

The Rajarajeswara temple is in Taliparamba, Kerala.

I would like hear from people from Taliparamaba where the cremation ground exists in Taliparamba.

Another unique feature is that the Devotees are not allowed to offer Namaskara, Prostrations before the Deity, in the  Namaskara Mantapa, they are not allowed inside this Mantapa.

The reason is that Lord Rama offered Namaskara to Shiva here and as a mark of respect to Lord Rama, this custom is followed.

 

Legend.

Taliparamba is among the 108 ancient Kerala temples dedicated to Shiva.

Taliparamba is regarded as one of the ancient Shakti Peethams.

The Shiva Linga here is believed to be several thousands of years old. Legend has it that Shiva gave three sacred Shiva Lingas to Parvati/Sati for worship.

One sage, Maandhata propitiated Lord Shiva with intense prayers. Shiva was so pleased that he presented one of the Shiva Lingas to him with the injunction that it should be installed only at a place where there was no cremation ground. The sage, after searching all over, found Taliparamba the most sacred spot where he installed the Shiva Linga.

After his death the Linga disappeared into the earth. Then his son Muchukunda offered similar prayers to Shiva and got a second Shiva Linga, which too disappeared in course of time. Centuries passed. The third Shiva Linga was handed down to Satasoman, a king of Mushaka/Kolathiri/Chirakkal Royal Family, who then ruled the region. He was an ardent devotee of Shiva. On the advice of sage Agastya, he prayed to Lord Siva, who granted him the Shiva Linga. The king installed it in the present temple built by him. However, many legends associated with the Temple, claim Agastya Himself as installing the ShivaLinga (which is believed as per those legends to be a ‘Jyothirlingam’).

* We have Spatha Vidnaga Sthalas in Tamil Nadu, where the legend runs on similar lines.Rfer my Post on Sapthavidanga Sthalas

It is believed that Sri Rama during his victorious return from Lanka stopped here to offer worship to Lord Shiva. In honor of His presence, devotees are not allowed into the namaskara mandapam even today.

Lord Shiva worshiped in this sacred temple is known as Sree Rajarajeswara, which means the Emperor of Emperors — the Lord Supreme. The name signifies the supreme transcendental power in the background of mysterious drama of the boundless universe. That power is invoked here as Lord Rajarajeshwara. Devotees address the lord with such royal appellations as Perumthrikovilappan, Perum-chelloorappan and Thampuraan Perumthrikkovilappan.

The Jyothirlingam in the shrine in vibrant with spiritual power that exerts an enriching influence both on the material and spiritual levels of the earnest devotees. The celebrated ancient sage Agasthya Maharishi is associated with the installation of the Jyothirlingam in the shrine.

Temple Timings.

Pooja / Prayer timings: The temple opens at 4 am and remains closed in the afternoon from 12 to 5.

Wednesday, the day when the lingam was installed, is the most important day for prayer instead of Monday.

Festivals: Shivratri, Puthari, a festival of the harvesting season; Karkadaka Sankramam (July) and Nira are some of the auspicious days celebrated in the temple with pomp and festivities.

Codes and guidelines: Men are allowed to enter the shrine at any time, but woman are allowed only after 8 PM. Non Hindus are not allowed to enter the temple. Mundu is the dress code for men.

Cloak room: One has to deposit their purse and other belongings in the cloak room outside. Photography is prohibited in the temple.

Shiva Tamil Sangam Dates Verified Star Canopus


It is human nature to dismiss as fantasy or sheer non sense when one can not understand an event.

I may point out until the late 80’s people would have been horrified and would have called you mad if you told them that you could see and talk to people with a small handheld device!

I recall, in the early 60’s, that I used to gape at a medium-sized box(later I came to know it was called a Transistor) which was emitting songs and remember looking for some wire that should have been there!

Now all these are found to be true and in the latter case we have even forgotten it!

This shows that it is only our inability to grasp things and it is not fantasy when some thing is thought of by the Human Mind.

I am a believer, this is not a sinful word at all, in the fact that what the Human Mind can conceive it can execute or had already executed by some one.

That’s why one does not find a word in Sanskrit describing things as Supra Normal or a Miracle,.

The closest word one finds, in such circumstances, is strange,”Aascharyam’ or Indescribable, ‘Avaktavya’.

When one looks at Indian History and Puranas with the blinker that only the present civilization is the most advanced in the History of Mankind and the whatever is said of the ancient times, is sheer non sense and pure fantasy.

Star Canopus  image.jpg
Star Canopus.
Sage Agastya..image.jpg
Sage Agastya.

Not so.

When one talks of the aeons , yugas in Hinduism running into thousands or even lakhs of years, or events which talk of highly developed scientific thoughts in those periods, one passes the remark  ‘pure fantasy”

Not at all.

One such instance is the description of the Tamil Sangams found in Tamil literature and in Sanskrit texts.

texts mention that Lord Krishna attended the Tamil Sangam as a Guest!

I have written article on this.

Because of our inability to understand we dismiss the Sangam period as a figment of imagination and the number of years it lasted , the number of Kings who patronised.

The Sangam period is assigned between 400 BC to 500 AD, that too the the Third and Last Sangam.

The earlier two Sangams are dismissed as legends!

 

Lets look what these ‘Legends’ say .

1st sangam:
The first Sangam was head-quartered in a city named Then-madurai (Southern Madurai). It was patronised by a succession of eighty-nine kings and survived for an unbroken period of 4,400 years during which time it approved an immense collection of poems and literature. At the end of that golden age the First Sangam was destroyed when a deluge arose and the entire city was swallowed by the sea along with large parts of the land area of Kumari Kandam. However, the survivors, saving some of the books, were able to relocate further north to the Srilankan side.

2nd sangam:
They established a Second Sangam in a city called Kavatapuram which lasted 3,700 years. The same fate befell this city as well when it too was swallowed by the sea and lost forever all its works with the sole exception of the Tolkappiyam, a work on Tamil grammar. Following the inundation of Kavatapuram, the survivors once again relocated northward in a city identified with modern Madurai in Tamilnadu, then known as Vada-madurai (Northern Madurai).

3rd sangam:
The Third Sangam lasted for a period of 1850 years’

These numbers seem to imaginary from our stand point.

How wrong this is and the Proof that they were facts.

I have earlier written an article that the Star Canopus, called Agastya proves the date of Sanatana Dharma by cross referencing Agastya’s visit to the South and another one dealing how the earth’s Axial Tilt is proved by Canopus and Agastya.

Based on thi,s date of Agastya can be fixed around 4000 BC.

 

1. Agastya, is the author of 25 hymns (nos 166 to 190) of the first ‘mandala’ of the Rigveda.
2. Canopus, the second brightest star in the night sky, is called Agastya in India.
3. This star is close to the ecliptic south pole, having an ecliptic latitude of –76°.
4. As the celestial poles go round the ecliptic poles due to the phenomenon of precession of the earth’s axis of rotation, this star becomes visible from different latitudes on the globe at different times. If we assume that for a star to be visible at a place its altitude at the meridian passage should be at least 5°, then calculations give the visibility curve for Agastya (Canopus) as follows.
5. Agastya was not visible from any part of India before 10,000 BC.
6. First it became visible at Kanyakumari around that epoch. Thereafter, as it was brought more and more northwards by precession, it became visible at various places in India.
7. It became visible in the east coast (in the present Chennai region) in 8500 BC, and in the present day Hyderabad in 7200 BC, in the Vindhya region in 5200 BC, at Delhi in 3100 BC.
8. At present it is visible from most parts of India for longer or shorter durations. This cycle will repeat after every 25,765 years. It is thus clear that around 5000 BC, the star Agastya was visible from the south of the Vindhyas, but not from the north of it.
9. If sage Agastya was the first to cross the Vindhyas from the north, he would have been the first northerner to see the star. Hence the star has been named after him, just as the Magellanic clouds in the southern sky are named after the navigator Magellan, who first saw them as he sailed southwards.
10. This fixes an epoch of 5000 BC for sage Agastya. This date is based on the assumption that for a star to be visible its meridian altitude has to be at least 5°.
11. If we make 8° meridian altitude as the criterion for visibility, the date of Agastya would be shifted to about 4000 BC. The dates 5000 and 4000 BC should therefore bracket the probable epoch of Agastya crossing the Vindhyan mountains.

Sangams 1, 2 and 3  were patronized by 89, 59 and 49 Pandyan kings respectively.

The first Sangam was supposed to have been started by Agastya under instruction by Lord Shiva.

This was before Shiva left with Ganesha through the middle east to Arctic because of a Tsunami when Satyavrata Manu , the ancestor of Lord Rama left for Ayodhya.

The last Sangam ended sometime at the beginning of the Christian era.

197 kings ruled  between these two dates.

If we assume a span of 20 years for each king on an average, we get a total period of about 4000 years, which would place Agastya’s epoch around 4000 BC, in agreement with the astronomical dating.

Thus Canopus verifies the Sangam and the Sangams stand by Canopus or Agastya.

 

Additional proof for the antiquity of Tamil and Agastya, Shiva please read my post on Poompuhaar where the artifact has been dated 17000 years back.

Pakistan’s Illegal Attempt to Swallow Gilgit Baltistan


I have received a message from my friend Daniel Dragomirescu,Romanian writer and journalist, born in Bucharest, a Humanist and a part of Contemporary literary Horizon,an International Literary Magazine.

Gilgit Baltistan Map.
Gilgit Baltistan Map.

He has forwarded me a  write-up from Manzoor Hussain Parwana is the Chairman of Gilgit Baltistan United Movement.

Mr.Manzoor Hussain Parwana highlights the illegal attempts of Pakistan to implicate Gilgit Balistan to Kashmir Problem and all the parties in Pakistan work in tandem to subdue the National spirit of these Gilgit Baltistan people.

While every one knows that Pakistan is trying hard to divert its people’s attention to Kashmir and gain Internationalise  this issue, of

no avail now,the issue of Gilgit Baltistan is being kept under the wraps

Moreover Pakistan wants to use this issue as a bargain chip with China.

In the process the cries of the people remain unheard.

What India does is likely to affect these people.

Time India took it own stand instead of reacting to US and China.

This is the write-up from Mr.Manzoor Hussain Parwana.

BACKDROP:

– The clash of interests can be won through power, whereas the conflict of ideologies has to be ascended by means of wisdom. Galileo’s head was chopped, on stating that the world is circular but later he proved to be correct. Similarly; perhaps if someone says today that Gilgit Baltistan will be the independent state of tomorrow on Galileo’s round planet, he will meet a similar fate. Besides, Gilgit Baltistan is a significant strategic crossroad country of the world, spreading over twenty eight thousand square miles of area situated in the midst of four nuclear powers of the world. This important region between CAR (Newly Independent Central Asian Republics), China, Pakistan and India is also known as the roof of the world. The three highest and mightiest mountain ranges of the world i.e. Karakoram, Hindukush and Himalaya also join hands here. Furthermore, this land is the focus of attention of tourists and adventurers; world over. In addition to this the said country is extensively rich in mineral wealth and immense natural resources. The increasing interest of USA, the development activities of His Highness Prince Karim Agha Khan, rising yearn of the people for independence and the developing activities of religious parties and Jehadi organizations are giving birth to notions at international level of Gilgit-Baltistan emerging as an independent country on the map of the world. In this context, initially the speculations of an Agha Khan Ismaili State consisting of areas of Gilgit Baltistan and Chitral, American Colony and of an Independent State have attracted attention of the people interested in Gilgit-Baltistan and thus are enhancing their curiosity. In the ensuing research work, the writer has endeavored to briefly present the various aspects and consequent possibilities of the rapid changing geo-political environments, by keeping in mind the interests and emotions of the people of Gilgit Baltistan; so as to keep them alert to wisely face the emerging conditions.

–       FIFTH PROVINCE OF PAKISTAN:

–        In accordance with the basic UNCIP Resolution of 13 August 1948, Supplementary UNCIP Resolution of 5 January 1949, internationally accepted maps and Supreme Court of Pakistan decisions; Gilgit-Baltistan is a part of the Kashmir Dispute. This region was temporarily handed over to Pakistan for administrative ease as a result of Karachi Agreement of 28 April1949. The Govt of Pakistan wanted to and still wants that these areas be made permanent part and parcel of the State of Pakistan but ironically it is facing great political and legal difficulties in this context. In the international scenario; legally, geographically and constitutionally, these areas are very clearly not part of Pakistan. Despite all these proven ground realities, some political parties are demanding that this region be declared as the fifth province of Pakistan; which is merely a baseless propaganda ploy aiming at keeping the people aloof from political struggle. These political parties are insisting on this illogical and foolish demand, either being politically naïve/ immature or ignorant of the geographical conditions and the fact that Gilgit-Baltistan is not legal part of Pakistan and the state which is not part of any county, then how come that state can be a province of that country? Secondly these people are at the height of materialism or enemy of the masses who want to mislead the simple people and keep them away from their right by plotting the drama of fifth province. Till Kashmir dispute is not resolved, Gilgit Baltistan is neither able to become a part of Pakistan nor province, because if Govt of Pakistan makes the mistake of correcting the legal setup of Gilgit-Baltistan, then the Kashmir Problem will be disturbed. There is no doubt that 2 millions deprived masses of Gilgit and Baltistan are restless to come out from the dark nights of 56 years of slavery and injustice to the bright day because new generation doesn’t wants to repeat old historical folly again.

–       SHIA STATE:

–        The Iranian Islamic Revolution has made deep and long lasting effects on the society of Gilgit- Baltistan. The main cause of which are the Shia ulemas and students who are associated with the religious institutes of Qom and Mashad. The Shia community of Gilgit-Baltistan has passionate association with Islamic Revolution of Iran. The practical demonstration of this passionate association can be seen off and on. Inspite of the rallies and demonstrations in favor of Iran and against its political opponents, give this point more strength that there is a secret hand working for the benefit of Iran. Due to this point or fear some people develop the feeling that Gilgit-Baltistan will become a Shia State. People believe that ideal personality of Imam Khomeini and the ideal Shia Govt of Iran is a model for the Shia community of Gilgit-Baltistan but history tells us that the passionate association of the Shia school of thought is at its own place but the Govt of Iran has nothing to do with the Shia majority areas of Gilgit-Baltistan. The proof of which is the silence of Iran over 1988 incident (killing of Shias). Being aware of this fact still some parties are afraid that if Gilgit-Baltistan will become an independent State then due to the majority of masses it will become a Shia State. But the Shia majority of Gilgit-Baltistan thinks that it will be beneficial for them to become the fifth province of Pakistan, according to them if Gilgit-Baltistan will become 5th province, it will be the province of Shia majority which will play a vital role in the protection of the rights of other Shia community of Pakistan. To give this formula a practical form, Tehrik-e- Jafria of Pakistan has been actively participating in the elections of Gilgit-Baltistan. In this era there is no chance of Gilgit-Baltistan becoming a Shia State or a Shia majority province because Shias here are not being supported by Iran and neither the world powers are in favor of such a state in this sensitive and important area.

–       UNITED KASHMIR OR SUNNI STATE:

–        The patriotic parties of Azad Jammu and Kashmir working for the independence have this opinion that the state of Gilgit-Baltistan is the unbreakable part of Jammu Kashmir. They demand for an independent united Kashmir consisting of Jammu and Kashmir, Kargil, Ladakh and Gilgit-Baltistan. According to them this is the only solution of the problem of Kashmir and the benefit and freedom of the masses of Kashmir is that they neither become part of Pakistan or India and struggle for its own independence. The struggle of patriotic politicians of Kashmir for an independent Kashmir is getting stronger day by day on national and international level. On the other hand the Sunni school of thought, who are a majority in Kashmir, wants to liberate Indian held Kashmir and are enthusiastic in making it a part of Pakistan. According to them Pakistan is a Sunni majority state therefore the masses of the State of Kashmir should also get into this fort of Islam. They are against making Gilgit-Baltistan a part or the province of Pakistan. Firstly they want to make Gilgit-Baltistan a part of Kashmir and then Kashmir a part of Pakistan. Behind their dual policy, the role of secret agencies and their secret pursuits cannot be ignored. Therefore the Shia school of thought is afraid that if this plan will succeed then they will be deprived of their rights and the dream of Shia majority state will be shattered. This fear forces them to raise their voices against this plan. Jammat Ahle Sunnat, Ahle Hadith and Jammat-e-Islami are doing their best to join Gilgit-Baltistan with Azad Jammu and Kashmir. These Jahadi parties have their network in Gilgit-Baltistan. The Warriors and Mujahidins of these Jahadi Parties are filled with the passion of Jehad and are struggling to make Kashmir a part of Pakistan and Gilgit-Balistan a part of Kashmir. The World powers have not only taken a thorough view of the increasing activities of Mujahidins in Gilgit-Baltistan but rather being afraid of these activities, the policy makers have changed their view over the problem of Kashmir, Before the incident of 9/11, it was presumed that may be the world powers will make Kashmir an independent country but after seeing the activities of Mujahidins in the state of Kashmir they have blocked all the roads leading towards the creation of an independent State, as it would be considered a victory for these Jahadi parties. Naturally American and other important World powers will not like this idea. It appears now that America and other World powers will help in the division of Kashmir. For this purpose and to accomplish their plan, their eyes are now on Kargil, Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral.

–        AGHA KHAN STATE:

–        From last two or three decades, many magazines and newspapers are publishing articles and stories about the creation of an Agha Khan State consisting of Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral. Many analysts and observers consider the creation of an “Agha Khan State” not impossible. The role of Agha Khan Ruler Support Program (AKRSP) cannot be ignored in giving birth to the propaganda of Agha Khan State. Right from the beginning people had this feeling that behind this social and developmental program of AKRSP, Agha Khan wanted to get hold of these areas. According to the religious leaders (Moulvies) he is trying to spoil the faith of people and to support this idea, the Shia and Sunni leaders have made speeches against AKRSP being impious. Despite, all these struggles, AKRSP gained popularity among the people and today in the development of Gilgit-Batistan the role of Agha Khan Foundation is undeniable. His Highness Agha Khan is the 49th Imam of Ismaili community and a large number of people have religious faith in Agha Khan in Gilgit-Baltistan. For these people, personality of Agha Khan; spiritually, religiously and politically is very honorable and Agha Khan is also very sympathetic and affectionate towards his followers. Agha Khan often visits these areas to remain aware of the religious and worldly problems of his followers. From all this it can be judged that there is a secret plan of making an Independent Agha Khan State consisting of Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral. The keen interest of Agha Khan in Gilgit-Baltistan and because of his good relations with American and European countries it won’t be surprising if Gilgit-Baltistan will become an independent Agha Khani State.

–       AMERICAN COLONY:

–       After getting hold of Oil, America is now planning to get hold over water. According to the specialists ” The Third World War will be over fresh water”. Glaciers, rivers and streams of Karakorum, Hamalaya and Hindukush situated in Gilgit-Baltistan are the second big source of fresh water in the world. In order to win the war over fresh water in the near future, America has started working over plans and to make these plans successful, America’s eyes are now over Deosai Plains. In the south of Skardu Baltistan, Deosai is the highest plateau above Sea level in the world. Due to its beauty, length/width, tourism, geographical and defensive importance, America and Britain have often asked Pakistan to let them use these plains for their military purposes, but this is delayed or refused by the Pakistani Government due to the opposition and demonstrations of the local people …The situation of Deosai in Gilgit Baltistan and connection with the despute of Kashmir is helping America in clearing this obstacle. By making Kashmir an atomic flash point, Pakistan and India have opened the doors for America to interfere and now to enter Gilgit- Baltistan, America has raised the agenda of protecting water from atomic and chemical pollution. Besides Deosai, America is now in the hope to occupy Siachin, the highest battle field and Shahra-e-Resham(KKH), the ancient trading route. Gilgit-Baltistan which is full of natural resources and a paradise for tourists is now being wanted by America to make it a Tourist as well as a Free trade Zone. To step into Gilgit-Baltistan, 20 lac masses are the biggest weapon for America. It seems that America will achieve its goal by giving basic and legal rights to the masses of this area because the people of this area have been waiting since 56 years for such an angel who will free them from slavery and helplessness. America is master in these matters, as at present it has also given back snatched rights to the people of Afghanistan and Iraq and has led them to the path of democracy. The government of Pakistan and India cannot block the interference of America in Gilgit-Baltistan, because America can use the Resolution of United Nations on Kashmir dispute as a weapon. America has a valid reason to interfere in the matters of Gilgit-Baltistan by using the basic resolution of United Nation passed on 13th of August 1948, over Kashmir. Mostly it is thought that China will not tolerate the interference of America in these areas. It is a one sided thought because the interference of America in Gilgit-Baltistan does not effect China rather it will protect the interests of China, by opposing America China, cannot risk its economical interests in the world market. It is proved by a valid source that China is very suspicious about the activities and the training camps of Islamic Mujahidiens in Gilgit-Baltistan because China does not likes such activities on its border areas and if America will occupy this area China will take a sign of relief. Now, China is also afraid of the movement for the great Tibet in Baltistan. To please China, America has offered concessions in the World trade market and also regarding Hong Kong. The border benefits given to China by India in Tibet and Ladakh are a chain of this matter. To give success to their plans in near future, America and European countries have spread the network of NGO’s in Gilgit-Baltistan. The activities of some NGO’s are a source of alarm/ knell for the literate community of this area. Till now, efforts are in hand by these NGO’s so as to please this aware community so that no voice is raised against them. To smooth its ways in the near future, America can provide benefits to common people and nationalists. It is a universal truth that two million masses who are the victims of cruelty since 56 years will fight against the rule of America in these areas but it is also worth noticing that the rule of America in these areas will merely be the change of masters because these people are accustomed to celebrate slavery and change of masters. The hatred for America by religious parties is at its own place but if Dollar will replace Rayal and Tuman then new sermons will change the opinion of the masses. Now it is to be seen that how long will it take America to change Last Colony into American Colony.

–        GILGIT-BALTISTAN STATE:

–       The masses of Gilgit-Baltistan are desperately feeling the loss of their legal and basic rights. These days, the learned community wants to see Gilgit-Baltistan in the row of Cultured and developed countries. This community is known as Nationalists in this area, many Nationalist Parties are struggling for the rights of the masses of Gilgit-Baltistan with various motives. The motives of some parties are very clear but nothing can be said about others. The theory of all these parties towards national identity, culture, history and geography is same. In spite of unfavorable conditions, the struggle of these parties for the reformation of the national identity of the masses is increasing day by day. The new generation can foresee their bright and secure future in the Independent State of Gilgit-Baltistan. The parties with most firm and clear opinion in Gilgit-Baltistan are Balawaristan National Front (BNF), Gilgit Baltistan United Movement (GBUM), Karakuram National Movement (KNM). BNF is struggling to make an independent state consisting of Gilgit-Baltistan, Kargil, Ladakh, Chitral and Kohistan. Although GBUM is demanding to reinstate “Republic of Gilgit Baltistan “at the position of 1st November 1947.    The chairman of BNF Abula Hamid Khan and GBUM   Chairman, Manzoor Parwana were sent to prison several times on sedition charges by the govt. of Pakistan in Gilgit. Abul Hamid Khan is self exiled in Europe now a days while Manzoor Parwana is facing sedition charges in the Paksitani courts  and restricted to move abroad.

Gilgit-Baltistan Democratic Alliance (GBDA) is the name for the union of Nationalists parties. GBDA is working for 2 objectives which are based on the reformation of national identity of the masses of Gilgit-Baltistan. This union has clear stance for an independent state of Gilgit Baltistan. Although the independent Gilgit-Baltistan is the main object of nationalist’s parties so they are facing sedition cases on raising their voices for the rights of the people.

–       Beside these Nationalist Parties Federal Representative Parties like PPP, PML, PTI, MWM Pakistan, Jammet Ulmah Islam and Jammat-e-Islami also working in Gilgit-Baltistan and these parties are working on the motive to make Gilgit-Baltistan a Province of Pakistan or make it a part of Kashmir. These parties have the motive that the war of liberation of 1947 was fought to make Gilgit-Baltistan a part of Pakistan and the masses of Gilgit-Baltistan had voted to make it a part of Pakistan. On the contrary the Nationalist parties have this motive that the war of liberation of 1947-48 was fought for making Gilgit-Baltistan an independent state and they were succeeded. On 1 November 1947 Independent State of Gilgit-Baltistan appeared on the map of world but after 16 days Pakistan took over the charge therefore Gilgit Baltistan should be reformed. Some communities are afraid that the struggle of these nationalist parties is giving strength to other countries especially America to interfere in the matters of Gilgit Baltistan and to get its objective in the near future America can support these nationalist parties but these parties are working on their plan against making Gilgit Baltistan an American Colony or Agha Khan State. According to them, their struggle is to liberate the people of Gilgit-Baltistan from the slavery of others rather to make them slave of others because only the people of Gilgit-Baltistan have the right to rule Gilgit-Baltistan. Agha Khan State or American Colony will be a constant threat to Pakistan, India, China and Central Asian Countries. The prophecies for the future of Gilgit-Baltistan are at its peak now a day. The truth is that Gilgit-Baltistan is passing through the phase of decision-making, if the people of this area made good decisions then the future of Gilgit-Baltistan is very bright in this Global Village, otherwise the tug of war for these areas will lead the World to 3rd World War.

Agastya Earth Tilt 41000 Years Ago Axial Tilt Milankovitch Cycles


Hindu Puranas state that Sage Agastya was ordered by Lord Shiva to proceed to the South to rectify the balance of the Earth as it tilted down in the south because of the congregation of Devas and people of the earth in the North, Himalayas to attend His (Shiva’s)  marriage with Parvati.

Accordingly Sage Agasthya traveled down from the North to the South and had the Earth’s balance restored.

Is this a fantasy?

Hinduism narrates events and philosophy in two ways.

One is stating facts as they are, if in its opinion we are capable of understanding it.

For example the details on Astrology or the events related to the Ithihasas, Ramayana, Mahabharata.

In other cases they allude to events by interesting legends, like saying that there is Chanda Loka(world of the Moon) to convey a stage of spiritual development in Pranayama.

It is interesting to note that these two technics are followed to denote the same event, as in the description of Sun’s Movement in His Chariot and the description of Vishnu’s Naval Galaxy.

The incident narrated above falls into Allegory , relating to formation of seasons.

This is validated by  Milankovitch Cycles.

‘Axial tilt, the second of the three Milankovitch Cycles, is the inclination of the Earth’s axis in relation to its plane of orbit around the Sun. Oscillations in the degree of Earth’s axial tilt occur on a periodicity of 41,000 years from 21.5 to 24.5 degrees.

Milankovitch Cycles. periodicity of 41,000 years.iamge.jpg
Axial Tilt .Milankovitch Cycles. periodicity of 41,000 years

Today the Earth’s axial tilt is about 23.5 degrees, which largely accounts for our seasons.  Because of the periodic variations of this angle the severity of the Earth’s seasons changes. With less axial tilt the Sun’s solar radiation is more evenly distributed between winter and summer. However, less tilt also increases the difference in radiation receipts between the equatorial and polar regions.

One hypothesis for Earth’s reaction to a smaller degree of axial tilt is that it would promote the growth of ice sheets. This response would be due to a warmer winter, in which warmer air would be able to hold more moisture, and subsequently produce a greater amount of snowfall. In addition, summer temperatures would be cooler, resulting in less melting of the winter’s accumulation.   At present, axial tilt is in the middle of its range.’

There is another legend relating to Agastya, which states that Agastya crossing over to the South and in the process made he Vindhya Mountain shorter.

I have written on this while writing on Canopus and stated that it coincides with the Migration of Manu from the South to Ayodhya.

Yet another states that Agastya drank Ocean( I shall be writing on this).

Axial Tilt.To understand axial tilt, we employ the right-hand rule. When the fingers of the right hand are curled around in the direction of the planet’s rotation, the thumb points in the direction of the north pole. “Globespin-tilt-23.4″ by Wikiscient, Tdadamemd – File:Globespin.gif – created using NASA’s “Visible Earth” image (in the public domain)..

In astronomy, axial tilt (also called obliquity) is the angle between an object’s rotational axis and the perpendicular to its Orbital plane, both oriented by the right hand rule. At an obliquity of 0°, these lines point in the same direction i.e. the rotational axis is perpendicular to the orbital plane. Axial tilt differs from inclination. Because the planet Venus has an axial tilt of 177° its rotation can be considered retrograde, opposite that of most of the other planets.The north pole of Venus is “upside down” relative to its orbit. The planet Uranus has a tilt of 97°, hence it rotates “on its side”, its north pole being almost in the plane of its orbit.

Over the course of an orbit, the angle of the axial tilt does not change, and the orientation of the axis remains the same relative to the background stars. This causes one pole to be directed toward the Sun on one side of the orbit, and the other pole on the other side, the cause of the seasons on the Earth.

Now Palaeo-anthropology has found amazing, correlation of this genealogy with the genetic profile of humans settled in north, south, east and west of India since the Holocene (about 11000 years BP) to the present. Almost all the important studies in palaeo- anthropology, including those carried out by Kenneth A. R. Kennedy and Cavalli-Sfroza, have concluded that genetic profile of people of the Indian subcontinent has remained the same for last more than 55000 years and that for last 11000 years this profile is of culturally developing people who had started speaking a structured language and were taking cooked food. .”

“A very interesting study was recently conducted by Dr. Gyaneshwar Chaubey of Estonian Biocentre. He scanned genepool of three most ancient tribes mentioned in Ramayana, i.e. Kol (e.g. Guh nishad), Bhil (e.g. Bhilni) and Gond, and compared the results with their neighboring populations and other world populations. It was concluded that the genepool of these tribes was primarily founded over indigenous component, having continuity for last over ten thousand years.’

 

“In the Indian context, we are now familiar with the work of U.S anthropologists Kenneth Kennedy, John Lukacs and Brian Hemphill.3 Their chief conclusion, as far as the Aryan debate is concerned, is that there is no trace of “demographic disruption” in the North-West of the subcontinent between 4500 and 800 BCE; this negates the possibility of any massive intrusion, by so-called Indo-Aryans or other populations, during that period.

Die-hard proponents of such an invasion / migration have therefore been compelled to downscale it to a “trickle-in” infiltration,4 limited enough to have left no physical trace, although they are at pains to explain how a “trickle” was able to radically alter India’s linguistic and cultural landscape when much more massive invasions of the historical period failed to do so.5 Other proponents still insist that “the Indo-Aryan immigrants seem to have been numerous and strong enough to continue and disseminate much of their culture,”6 but do not explain how the “immigrants” failed to leave any trace in the anthropological record.
