Jesus Suprabhatha in Sanskrit,Time To Register Protest

In fact, Thirupparnkundram,One of the six special abode of Murugan,Subrahmanya,is called as Sikhander Mountain by Muslim groups and the hill in Kashmir where Adi Shankaracharya meditated,has been called as Suleiman Hills by the Department of Archeology,India.

Time people recorded these frauds so that future generations are not presented with false History.

Christian proselytising is one thing,aping customs of other Religions,especially Hinduism,is another.

The way Christianity apes and follows Hinduism is laughable.

We have Pastors,calling themselves Sadhus,like Sadhu Chellappa,

Calling Bible as Vedaagamam,without understating the meaning of the terms,Veda or Agama,

Using Sanskrit terms in the Bible and conducting Upavasa Japan(!),

Conducting Agni Camp, for preaching,(tell me,what has Christ to do with Agni,Fire),

Calling their preachers as Sastrigal(Purohits),

Conducting Christian Festivals,including at Velankanni,with Dwajarohana(hoisting ceremonial flag at the temple before a festival),

…….

Now they have started,in addition to Jesus Sahasranama and Astotra,Jesus Suprabhatha!

Watch the Video below.

One must remember that what is in use today becomes History tomorrow.

If we fail to check and record these atrocious attempts to seek legitimacy to Christianity,sometime in future Christians will claim Christ is Vedic God!

Christians As Brahmins

Parents Pray Son For Knowledge Vishnu Stuthi Kashyapa for All Problems. 

The latter is an Attribute of Brahman, the Ultimate Reality.
As Saguna Brahman, Relative Reality, it evolves itself into the world of Names and Forms.
This is where we live in.
The other, beyond names and forms and some with names and forms exist, if one follows the Indian scriptures closely.


There are abstruse  hints about two concepts of Time and different types of Beings, one living within the confines of Space and Time and another, may be many, beyond the realms of Space and Time.

The latter is an Attribute of Brahman, the Ultimate Reality.

As Saguna Brahman, Relative Reality, it evolves itself into the world of Names and Forms.

This is where we live in.

The other, beyond names and forms and some with names and forms exist, if one follows the Indian scriptures closely.

I stumbled onto Dual Concept of Time.

That is Time is both Linear and Circular.

I had written on this in my earlier articles.

I shall be quoting sources and text from Sage Bharatwaja on the dual concept of Time, Spectroscopy in early ancient Indian texts and write a series.

And there is the question of Kashyapa, one of the Saptha Rishis, who remain Eternal,

And we have Manu and Daksha, who are regarded as first Human Beings.

And their daughter/s were married to Sage Kashyapa. Kashyapa is an ancient Rishi and his wife Aditi gave birth to thirty three children.

Eleven Rudras, twelve Aditya, Eight Vasus and two Aswini devas.

Rudra, an amsaor aspect of Lord Shiva is one of the Rudras and Vishnu, one of the twelve Adityas.

I shall write about the hidden message of a first human’daughter being married to one Rishi who remains Eternal.

This has historical, geographical and cosmological significance.

Now I am posting a Stuthi,, Praise to Lord Vishnu by His parents Kashyapa and Aditi.

This Prayer is for solving all problems and attaining Self Realization.

The Sthuthis.

Prabho! I am grieving with unimaginable anguish which could be destroyed only by you. My Salutations toYou Bhagavan who sports lotus garlands and Pushakara malaas; You are the Adi Vidhata who is an embodiment of propitiousness! You are Kamala Nayana, Padmanaabha, the Creator of Brahma, Atmajanma, Lakshmi Pati, Indriya damana, worthy of darshan only by Samayama Yogis, Sudarshana and Khadga dhaari! Only those ‘Atmagyanayuta’ Yagnakartas, Yogadhyaanis and Yoga Saadhakaas could aspire to visualise your Gunarahita Brahma Swarupa! May I pay my obeisances to you Sharanga Dhari Deva! as you occupy the whole world in a Gross Form and yet possess the tiniest Form which is invisible! Those persons who do not make efforts to visualise you do not get your Darshan any way, but those who have no other desire in life excepting you would readily witness you are blessed with your image in their hearts always for the asking! Your unbelievable Jyoti or extraordinary Radiance is all-pervading in the entire Universe in which you are present invisibly and contrarily the Universe is but an integral segment of You Parama Deva! In other words, You are all over the Universe, the Universe was created by you and in fact the Universe is of Yours! My humble greetings to you the original Prajapati! Pitara Sreshtha! Devata Swami! Shri Krishna! Here are my Pranaams again and again! You are the Supreme Objective of Pravritti and Nivritti Deeds (Ritualistic and Directly unswerving approach) and the Unique Decider of bestowing Swarga or Moksha the Eternal Bliss! My namashkaaraas to you Vishuddha Swarupa as even my taking your very name and memory would smash all my sins! You are the Avinaashi or Indestructible; Akhilaadhara or the Mighty Clutch of the Entirety; the Only Reliever of the Trap of Birth-Death Cycle! You are perceptible through Yagnaas, the Yagna Murti, the Yagna Sthita and Yagna Purusha! Vedas commend you, Vedajnaas sing your hymns, You are the ‘Vidwadjanaashraya’ or the one who is fond of the Company of Vidwadjanaas. My Most Revered Paramaatma! The whole Vishwa is your Creation, Sustenance and also the Termination thus You are the Vishva Kartha, Vishva Bharta and the Vishwa Harta! I pray to that Highest Magnificence who materialised Surya Swarupa and destroyed darkess for good. To that Sarveswara, the Ajanma, Avyaya, Srashta and Vishnu who is fully aware of the Truth about me and the transparency and earnestness of my Prayers that I am prostrating with humility craving him to grant my wish!)

Hindu Death Ceremony Days 2 to 9 Daaha Thaapa Upachamanam


The ceremonies performed after collection of bones/ashes and immersion in the sea,the Rites of Hinduism addresses three issues.

Seasame seeds. Image

1.The Saisfying of the Pretha,the subtle body that remains after the body is turned to ashes and immersion in the sea.

2.The gradual process of making the Pretha getting disgusted with what is offered and moving/joining ancestors.

3.The process of purification of Home and the relatives from the impurities attached to Death and the attendant ceremonies.

As explained in the last article,the Subtle body,Pretha remains after life is snuffed out and the physical frame becomes Sava and is cremated.

The Pretha,without the medium of Body is unable to satisfy its urges.

(It may be noted that the Subtle body,when Life is present is called Sookshma Sarrera and is nourished by what we eat.It becomes Pretha only after Death).

There are two cravings in any Human Beings in terms of what they experience.

Daaha and Thaapa.

Daaha may lossely translated as Urge,Thirst,Obsessive Desire to enjoy.

Thaapa is anguish,disappointment,frustration in not getting what one desires.

These two are resolved,to a limited degree,when one is alive,has body.

Even if what one desires does not materialize,one has mind,when alive,to understand and compromise.

Pretha,with no body and mind can not do this.

However the urge,Daaha and Thaapa remain with it.

It is to be met if the,Pretha is to move forward and join the ancestors.

The death ceremonies of Hindus ,from Day one to thirteen address these.

On the day of death,at the cremation ground,after consigning the body to flames,the son of the deceased makes a rough sketch of human body with sand on the ground.

The Pretha is made to come into this,by chanting mantras requesting the,Pretha to come in and accept what is offered.

Water,Tender Coconut Water and Seasame seeds with Water are offered to the Pretha in the Human sketch formed on the ground.

After immersion of ashes in the sea,the Pretha is made to descend in a small stone placed in a corner at the home of the deceased.

A small area is selected inside the house,where the deceased lived,roughly one foot by one foot,the area is paved with sand and a thatch of Coconut leaf is placed as the roof.

The son offers water,water and Seasameseeds to the Pretha in the stone daily.

Water is offered to quench Daaha and meet with desires of the Pretha .

Sea same seeds with water is offered to satisfy Thaapa, anguish.

The water and sea same seeds with water is increased every day till the tenth day.

The Pretha is believed to be hovering around the house till it is sent to join Pitrus, ancestors on the twelfth Day.

Answers To Doubts on Tharpana,Duty to Ancestors.

I received the the following query from a reader on Pitru Tharpana.

I have replied them in the chart below.

My information is based on Late. Sri.Anna Subrahmanya Iyer book Yajur Veda Sandhya Vandanam,available at RK Mutt book stores and at Railway stations.

One important query .

perform tharpanam facing eastward. But some say that we must face southward. Which is correct.?

Reply.

The procedure is to perform Madhyannika,Brahma Yagnya and then Tharpana.

Procedure for Sandhya Vandhana as per Sandhyavandana Procedure,so is for Brahma yagnya.

As to Tharpana,it is to be perfomed facing South.

Corrections/Suggestions welcome( with source)

Sl.No.

Doubts

Your kind advice

01

Normal Amavasai therpaman: SHOULD THIS BE PERFORMED  BEFORE NITYA POOJAI  OF AFTER THE NITYA POOJAI? 

 Before Nithya Pooja.Pitru Karyas take precedence over everything.

02

Sometimes, a festival and tharpanam come on the same day. IN SUCH CASES, SHOULD THIS BE PERFORMED  BEFORE NITYA POOJAI  OF AFTER THE NITYA POOJAI?    

 Tharpanam first.

03

Masa Pirappu Tharpanam :IN SUCH CASES, THARPANAM SHOULD BE PERFORMED  BEFORE NITYA POOJAI  OF AFTER THE NITYA POOJAI?    

 Tharpanam first.

04

Nithya Poojai, SHOULD NOT BE PERFORMED on the day of performing srardham for  my elders

 Can be performed after Sraddha.As  Sraddha is to begin by Noon,the Pooja can be done in the evening.

05

Nithya Poojai, SHOULD NOT BE PERFORMED on the day of performing Mahalaya srardham for  my elders

 Pooja can be done after Tharpana.

06

For performing any tharpanams, should  we add some raw rice [plain akshathai] to the sesame  or only sesame should be used?   

 Add Akshatha only on Fridays and on Festival days,if any.

07

During the tharpanam period, some use vibhuthi on their forehead and some do not. Which is correct

 Wearing of Vibuthi or Thirumann is by family traditions.Many use without mark. I do this way as it is our family tradtion.

08

I perform tharpanam facing eastward. But some say that we must face southward. Which is correct.?

Yama First To Walk Death, When did Cremation Begin

The Cremation of the Dead spread from Sanatana Dharma to Sumeria,and later to Greeks.

Homer mentions thus,

‘Never again will I return from Hades when I have received my meed of fire”. ‘

-Patroklos,in Homer’s Iliad.

Patroklos, Doesn’t it resemble Pitrulok,the abode of Ancestors of Hinduism?


The Concept of Death as personified is quiet ancient and Sanatana Dharma was the first to practice and is still practicing it.

The Cremation of the Dead spread from Sanatana Dharma to Sumeria,and later to Greeks.

Homer mentions thus,

Never again will I return from Hades when I have received my meed of fire”. ‘

Patroklos,in Homer’s Iliad.

Patroklos, Doesn’t it resemble Pitrulok,the abode of Ancestors of Hinduism?

Now to the issue of Creation.

Early Sanatana Dharma  cremated in a House made of Clay.

A Hymn on Varuna mentions this.

The dead walked towards Paradise,it was believed in the earliest Vedic period.

It was Yama,the God of Death was the First Man to walk towards Death.

Later He guided the Dead to Swarg/Narak,Heaven/Hell based on one’s deeds.

The Dead were offered to Fire God,Agni.

He conveys what is offered in homa fire used for the ceremonies to devathas ,through the Apri Devathas to Heaven.

When the remains of the deceased have been placed on the funeral pile, and the process of cremation has commenced, Agni, the god of fire, is prayed not to scorch or consume the departed, not to tear asunder his skin or his limbs, but, after the flames have done their work, to convey to the fathers the mortal who has been presented to him as an offering. Leaving behind on earth all that is evil and imperfect, and proceeding by the paths which the fathers trod, invested with a lustre like that of the gods, it soars to the realms of eternal light in a car, or on wings, and recovers there its ancient body in a complete and glorified form; meets with the forefathers who are living in festivity with Yama; obtains from him, when recognized by him as one of his own, a delectable abode, and enters upon more perfect life, which is crowned with the fulfilment of all desires, is passed in the presence of the gods, and employed in the fulfilment of their pleasure.”

Agni is worshiped thus in these ceremonies,

Make straight the pathways that lead to the gods; be kind to us, and carry the sacrifice for us”. 

To Yama, mighty king, be gifts and homage paid.

He was the first of men that died, the first to brave
Death’s rapid rushing stream, the first to point the road
To heaven, and welcome others to that bright abode.
Sir M. Monier Williams’ translation1

Professor Macdonell gives a new rendering of a Vedic hymn  in which Yama is referred to as follows:

Him who along the mighty heights departed,
Him who searched and spied the path for many,
Son of Vivasvat, gatherer of the people,
Yama the king, with sacrifices worship.
Rigveda, x, 14. 1.

Yama judged men as Dharma-rajah, “King of righteousness”; he was Pitripati, “lord of the fathers”; Samavurti, “the impartial judge”; Kritana, “the finisher”; Antaka, “he who ends life”; Samana, “the leveller”,

The path of humans is different,it was called Pitru Yana,while that of Gods was called Deva Yana.

These two terms also refer to seasons and in some contexts refer to Geographical locations, the Pitru Yana,the South ( Lemuria?)and Deva Yana,the North(Arctic).

Firs Step To Clear Mind Yoga Sutra 1.36

When we perceive,we have the objects we Perceive and our Impressions of them in the Mind.

The Objects do not change from time to time.

It is our interpretation of them at a particular point of time changes.

So what needs to be changed is our perception of Objects.


In Yoga Sutra 1.35,Patanjali talked about shutting down mental processes to do away with confusion,indecision and worry.

In Yoga Sutras 30 to 34,Patanjali explained about the effects of a wandering Mind.

Lord Krishna speaks of this state of confusion and indecision in the Bhagavad Gita, in Chapter 2.

When the mind is confused,with constant,relentless bombarding of Stimulii,the Mind is bewildered at the mountain of information received.

Buddhi,Intellect,which is a higher Plane than Mind,when confronted with making a Value decisions like Correct or Incorrect,Right or Wrong,also dithers.

This has to be corrected as the sensations that lead to emotions distort facts and misguide the ability of the Intellect to judge and decide.

This is what Krishna says in the sloka,Chapter 2,

‘Krodhaath Bhavathi Sam mohaha

Sammohaath Smriti vipramaha,

Smriti Dhwamsaath Buddhi Naaso,

Buddhi Naasaath Pranasyathi’

Out of Attachment arises Anger,

Anger breeds and fuels Intellect dithers,

When Intellect is destroyed,incapable of making right decisions,one is destroyed.

In Yoga Sutra 1.36,Patanjali offers a way out of this.

When we perceive,we have the objects we Perceive and our Impressions of them in the Mind.

The Objects do not change from time to time.

It is our interpretation of them atca particular point of time changes.

So what needs to be changed is our perception of Objects.

This is effected by the Mind and passed on to the Buddhi,Intellect,which thereafter can make the Right Decision.

So to shut down the external Objects,Patanjali adises one to Concentrate on a source of Light.

This is first step in Concentration,called Dhyana.

Here you are aware that you are concentrating and that there is an Object being Concentrated upon.

You are aware of both.

Next step is Dharana,when you forget that there is an Object you are concentrating upon, so immersed are you in your concentration.

The next and final step is Samadhi,where you and the object mergevand there is no Duality.

Patanjali Sutra 1.36 ,with Swami Vivekananda’s commentaru below.

36. णवशोका वा ज्योणतष्मती ॥ ३६॥

vishoka va jyotishmati

Or (by the meditation on) the Effulgent One which is

beyond all sorrow.

This is another sort of concentration. Think of the lotus of the heart, with petals downwards, and ruunning through it the

Sucumna; take in the breath, and while throwing the breat out

imagine that the lotus is turned with the petals upwards, and

inside that lotus is an effulgent light. Meditate on that.

Sri Yantra Pasupathaye Namaha Construction Site  Banks of Mississippi Iowa

Do you know what language is written on the yantra?’

The language written on this Yantra is Sanskrit.

What is intriguing is that the Yantra contains the phrase ‘ Pasupathaye Namaha’

The Epithet Pasupathi is for Lord Shiva and is not generally found in Sri Yantra.


Worship of Gods,Goddesses with human/Super Human Attributes,though not advocated by the Vedas,they stress on the Realisation of Reality,Brahman which is beyond Attributes,the Vedas and the later Smritis,realizing the inability of Human Mind to concentrate on a Vacuum or Attribute-less Principle recommended as a first step the Worship of Reality as One with Name and Form.

This is called Saguna Aradhana,while fixing Mind on the Attribute-less Brahman is called Nirguna Aradhana.

There are others methods recommended.

The Realization through Sound,Mantra.

Through Geometrical Shapes,Yantra.

Through esoteric practices,involving Mind and Body,Tantra.

One of the most powerful Yantras is the Sri Yantra.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Though generally attributed to Lalitha Devi and by some texts to Lakshmi as an Attribute of Lalitha,Sri Yantra is Nirguna Upasna.

Please read my articles on Lalitha,Yantras,Devi Aksharas.

The Yantra contains the Beeja Mantras ‘Sreem,Hreem,Kleem’ among others.

One of the readers of this blog,Sri. Linn Honeycutt sent me a message thus,a couple of days ago.

Greetings, 

      I met a man when I was in Wisconsin and he showed me a picture and said he found it. He was on a construction site on the banks of the Mississippi. I sent him a message and trying to get more details.

    Do you know what language is written on the yantra?’

The language written on this Yantra is Sanskrit.

What is intriguing is that the Yantra contains the phrase ‘ Pasupathaye Namaha’

The Epithet Pasupathi is for Lord Shiva and is not generally found in Sri Yantra.

I request scholars and Sri Vidya Upasakas to throw more light on this.

*The Yantra was found in a construction site on the banks of River Mississippi,Burlington,Iowa,US.

just confirmed it came from Burlington, Iowa where the Mississippi river runs east of the town.’

There is a debate about the Pasupathi Seal found in Mohenja Daro in Indus valley,dated 5000 years ago.

One of the points of the debate is whether the seal contains Male or Female figure.

Shall be writing on this.
