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.’

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.

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)

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.

Rama’s Genealogy Confirmed Palaeo- Anthropology Genome Study


Sage Vashista explains the Genealogy of Rama to King Janaka at the time of Rama Sita wedding.

Lord Rama's Coronation.jp

It is a Hindu Ritual mandated in a Vedic marriage.

It is called Pravara.

Genealogy of Lord Rama.

I had published articles on the Pravara of Rama and the list of Kings, Ikshvaku Dynasty to which Lord Rama belongs.

Thereupon, VasishTa, the Kula guru of Raghu kula started narrating the details of Gotra, Pravara etc. of Sri Rama:

Sree Raamachandra VarmaNE Saakshaat NaaraayaNa svaroopaaya varaaya?"

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.

Bhagavad Gita quote.

Why Gita Should Not Be India’s National Scripture


The Bhagavad Gita should not be declared as India,s National Sacred Text,

 

Because it

 

Gita quote.jpg
Gita quote.

 

talks of Humanity as a whole,

 

does not attempt to proselytize,

 

it was delivered by One whose Historicity is proved,

 

And not by one whose life and teachings were chosen to be written  three hundred years after his death, for some one’s political  convenience,

 

it is not by one who remembered moral teachings after some time it was given to him by God ,that too noting it from a Stone,

 

 

synthesizes  all religious thoughts,

 

does not advocate Bigotry,

 

it addresses Human issues,

 

it transcends Races, Nations, Religions,

 

it instills hope in the Minds of Man,

 

it does not order you to follow it,

 

it does not ask you to propagate your religion by killing,

 

it delivers one from depression and confusion,

 

it speaks of Human values like Compassion, Duty,Honor,Love to all Beings ,

 

it is objected to by the paragons of virtue in Indian Parliament,

 

especially by Sage Karunanidhi and mainly because

 

it is by an Indian in the Indian soil to Mankind.

 

News.

 

PM Modi gifted the Gita to US President Barack Obama, which means it has already received the honour of a national scripture. What we require is only a formal announcement now,” Sushma Swaraj said in a public meeting to mark 5,151 years of the Bhagavad Gita at the Red Fort.

Underscoring the importance of the Gita’s role in daily life, she said its message to perform one’s duty without feeling attached to its outcome is what guides her sense of duty at the ministry.

The Gita, believed to be the advice of Lord Krishna, is a 700-verse Hindu scripture that is part of the epic Mahabharata. Its call for selfless action inspired many leaders of the independence movement, including Mahatma Gandhi who referred to the Gita as his ‘spiritual dictionary’.”

Shiva Vishnu The Same Quotes


 

I have posted some articles on the Unity of Shiva an Vishnu.

 

There is no distinction between the two.

 

I am providing some quotes from the Puranas.

 

Brahma Vishnu Shiva as One.Image.jpg.
Brahma Vishnu Shiva as One. Halebid

“Though the three, Brahma Vishnu and Siva form an integral whole the world considers them separate and quarrels.”

 

-Thirumoolar in Thirumandiram.

 

“Those who find indifference in Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva and recognise the oneness in them obtain eternal peace.” Chapetr 4 Srimad Bhagavatham

 

“Shiva Brahma and Vishnu are thy manifested forms, which create, maintain and destroy the universe at thy will.  Thou is Ishwara who delivers Moksha (Salvation).  Thou is Parabrahman (the Supreme Lord).”-Chapter 8 Srimad Bhagavataham

 

Shivo Harirhariha Shakshatchiva Eva Nirupitaha      |
Shivadveshi Haridrohi Vishnum Nityam Bhajanapi    || Narada Pancharatra.

‘Shiva is Hari and Hari is none other than Shiva.  An enemy of Shiva is an enemy of Hari, even though he may daily worship Vishnu.’

 

Glory to thee, who is honoured as Brahman in the Vedanta – Lord of the three worlds – Mahadev.”-Vallabhacharya.

 

Legends from Puranas on Hiva and Vishnu being One.

 

“There are two mahaa-phala daayaka Vrukshas.

One by the name Vaasudeva and the other by the name Vaamadeva.

They differ only in their sumas (flowers) (‘su’ is replaced by ‘ma’ in their names), but both give the same phalas (fruits, which is moksham)”.

It is also often said, “How much one does not see the difference between Shiva and Vishnu, that much his aayu will increase”.

One day, when Lakshmi and Vishnu were together in vihaaram, Lakshmi sees Ucchaishravam, her brother, the horse of Revanta who is the son of Surya. Engrossed in seeing her brother, she does not reply to the repeated calls of Vishnu.

Seeing her attraction, Vishnu gives her shaapam to go to Bhulokam in the form of a horse and come back to Vaikuntam only after getting a son equal to Himself! She comes to Bhuloka to experience the shaapam and realizing that none other than her brother, Shiva can help her calm Vishnu, she immediately does a tapas for Him and Shiva appears to save her soodari. Lakshmi says “You and Vishnu are both same, the Paramaatma. Please help me!”.

Shiva says “Soodari! How do you know that we both are same? All learned people know that. Who told you?”.

Lakshmi says, “Once Mahavishnu Himself told me this. Seeing Him in deep Daiva-dhyaanam, I asked Him “During Samudramanthanam, I thought you were the greatest of all and hence chose you. Devaadideva! Who is better than you that you are in dhyaanam of Him?”.

Mahavishnu replied “I am doing Shankara-dhyaanam. He is Eshwara. He is the same as Me. All learned people know that. If someone is my devotee but still hates Shiva, he will fall into naraka”.

Saying this, She asks Shiva to pursuade Vishnu to bless Her with a child. Shiva sends Chitrarupa as a duta to convince Vishnu.

Vishnu immediately accepts and comes to Bhuloka and blesses Lakshmi with Ekaveera, who is equal to Vishnu Himself.

 

From Ekaveera came forth the Haihaya dynasty, of which the most noted king is Kartavirya Arjuna (Ekaveera’s grandson).

 

How much ever one imagines that much only are You:

  • For Vaishnavas You are Vishnu
  • For Vedaantas You are Parabrahma
  • For Shaivas and other bhaktas You are Shiva
  • For Kaapaalikas You are Kaala-Bhairava
  • For Shaakteyaas You are Shakti
  • For people with alpa-buddhi You appear as alpam
  • For people who know Your Garima and have Ghana-buddhi You are a Ghana
  • For people who are Sharanaagati You are Venkateshvara

Annamaacharya, in “Enta maatramuna evvaru talichina.

 

Once Shri Krishna, the avataar of Mahaavishnu, came to Upamanyu maharshi, when he was at Himaalayas.

Shri Krishna said “Upamanyu muniindra! You are the greatest in the Shiva Bhaktas. I came here to do Tapas of Paramashiva to get santaanam.

Please teach Me Shaiva-vidhi and vidhaanam”.

Upamanyu replied “O Shri Krishna! I know who You are. Shiva puuja is not new to You.

Though You know it, to make everybody know, I will tell You …” Saying thus, Upamanyu told Shri Krishna how to do Shiva-aaraadhana.
