Kristhu Bhagvatham Christ Life Sanskrit, Beware Attempt At Legitimacy

Unless we record that this work as an attempt at converting Hindus, by writing in Sanskrit, History in the not too distant future would record Kristhu Bhagavatham as the Nineteenth Purana or a Upa Puran.

I am recording this now here digitally that this Kristhu Kaavya is an attempt to seek legitimacy among Hindus to convert them.

In fact, this method of conversion is taking place now.

Indians must remember that their history was distorted under the name of Secularism and misinformation and disinformation about Hinduism was being promoted and is continuing even now.

Christianity and Islam believe in numbers.

They have different approaches.

Islam, the method of Sword.

Christianity is subtle while converting Hindus.

They,

  • Offer inducement, cash, kinds and both,
  • Offer their services solicitiously at the time of personal grief or one is low financially or emotionally and exploit,
    Opening educational institutions and subtly inject Christianity,
  • Offer their solace at the time of bereavement in the family, they have groups watching obituary columns, wait for non Hindu deaths and send out letters- when my brother expired in August 2017 I received communication from a Christian group offering to come to our home to comfort us!
  • Another method is to seek legitimacy by claiming that Christ was predicted in Hindu Puranas, Christianity is a form of Hinduism,
  • Jesus was a Yogi,
  • Jesus learnt Yoga in Kashmir and the Tomb of Christ is in Kashmir,
  • Calling themselves Brahmins and convert Hindus,
  • Prepared Christ Suprabath and Christ Sahasranama.

I have refuted these in my articles and some of them can be found as related posts

I have noticed that Christians have published a Christ Bhagavatham on the lines of Indian Purana Bhagavatham.

Kristhu Bhagavatham is in Sanskrit with thirty three cantos following the Epic Grammar of Sanskrit Mahakavyas.

And many prominent Hindus have appreciated the effort, hardly realising that this piece can be quoted as authentic even to date Christ, by manipulating timeliness by some self styled researcher!

I have noticed that this piece is being spoken as a Mahakavyas and is gaining legitimacy.

Sahitya Academy has awarded this work..

Kristubhagavatam: A Mahakavya in Sanskrit based on the life of Jesus Christ (Sanskrit: क्रिस्तुभागवतम्; Kristubhāgavatam or Kristu-Bhāgavatam) is a Sanskrit epic poem on the life of Jesus Christcomposed by P. C. Devassia (1906–2006), a Sanskrit scholar and poet from Kerala, India. For composing the Kristubhagavatam, Devassia won several awards, including the Sahitya Akademi Award for Sanskrit (1980). Composed in 1976 and first published in 1977, the poem consists of 33 cantos and over 1600 verses. As a mahakavya, it represents the most prestigious genre of Sanskrit epic poetry, characterized by ornate and elaborate descriptions


On the one hand, Christ is a historical figure, and I must narrate his life objectively; on the other hand, a Sanskrit Mahakavya must conform to certain norms laid down by Sanskrit rhetoricians. These norms require free play of the imagination. This is often incompatible with objective narrative. I did not fancy the idea of translating the Bible into Sanskrit. I wanted my work to be really a Mahakavya, a literary piece, which anyone conversant with Sanskrit language should be able to read and enjoy. I have taken as my guide Fulton Oursler, who, in his “The Greatest Story Ever Told“, tells the story of Christ and fills in the details left out in the gospels by means of his fertile imagination.

..

Look how he imitates Valmiki in prologue?

Revolting.

In his foreword, V. Raghavan wrote that the first efforts of the Christian missionaries to produce Christian literature in Sanskrit resulted in “translations of the Bible, which were all miserable.”:ii In contrast the Kristubhagavatam is the first major Sanskrit poem on the “whole life of Christ,” and Devassia “follows all the norms and practices of the Mahakavya, but does not indulge in too many figures or descriptions…. The style is simple and clear, endowed as it is with the Gunas of ‘Prasada‘ and ‘Saukumarya.’[3]:2[8]Furthermore,

Not only the incidents, the miracles, etc. are faithfully given, but also the famous sayings of Christ… are incorporated in appropriate terms. [There is also] inclusion of apt analogies and comparisons with personalities and situations in the two Sanskrit Epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, as also in the Puranas, and occasionally with some well-known happenings in modern India, like the killing of Gandhiji…. No effort is spent to make the poem over-coloured or loaded with displays of learning or skill: it is always simple and straightforward, in the much valued ‘Vaidarbhi’

style.

Raghavan added that in Devassia’s state of Kerala, “where Sanskrit and Malayalam have blended into a homogeneous amalagam, the community of Sanskritists is a commonwealth of Hindus, Christians and Muslims…. one finds here an Indian approach and an Indian presentation of the life of Christ

..

the sonority of Sanskrit gives a fresh morning splendour and resonance to Jesus’ divine ministry. Mary held Joseph’s hand as Arundhati did Vasishtha’s; Just as Vasudevahid his son Krishna in Nanda’s house, so did Joseph take Jesus to Egypt for his safety; Lazarus’ sisters embraced him as he emerged out of his tomb, even as Devayani embraced Kacha as he revived after death…. in betraying Jesus with a kiss, wasn’t Judasanticipating Godse who was to kill the Mahatma after first saluting him? The similes come naturally, and rather bring out the basic unity of texture that binds all human history

In summary, K. R. Srinivasa Iyengar concluded that the Kristubhagavatam is…

…a double demonstration, firstly that Sanskrit is by no means a ‘dead language’ but is very much and gloriously alive; and secondly, that Jesus is not the Christians’ Messiah alone, but one of the pathfinders, one of the redeemers, of humanity as a whole. His message of Love has a permanent and potent significance for all mankind.

How gullible these people who have heaped encomiums on a piece meant to destroy your religion?

One’s finger blinding one’s own eye!

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.

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!)

The process of Vaasi Yoga is Shiva.

Read Vaasi backwards,it is,Shiva.

Please check my detailed article on this.

There is an Upanishad in the,Sama Veda dedicated to Yoga process.

This was taught bt Lord Dattatreya to Sage Sankrithi.

This is the Jabali Darshana Upanishad.


Yoga Sutra of Patanjali,speaks of Eight Limbed Yoga,Ashtanga Yoga.

They are ,

Yama,

Niyama,

Asana,

Pranayama,

Dhyana,

Prtathyaahaara,

Dharana and

Samadhi.

Patanjali is not the founder of Yoga.

He codified the practices of Yoga.

Vedas speak of Yoga very subtly.

The obejective of Human Life is to realize the Self.

This is possible only when one can control and channelize the thoughts in the effort to control Chitta,which exists at a higher level than thoughts.

Patanjali describes ,in the first Sutra of his Yoga Sutra,

‘Yogaha,Chitta vruthi nirodhdha’

The cessation of the modification of Chitta is Yoga,Communion.

For more on this,please read my articles on Yoga Sutra.

By limiting the Thought waves, Consciousness is controlled through Breath Control.

Breath Control is described by Patanjali under Pranayama.

All the steps of Yoga are to be followed in the order described by Patanjali.

I have listed them in the order at the beginning of this article.

Performing Yoga in any other manner,like doing Pranayama or the so called Meditation without going through Yama ,Niyama etc. Is not Yoga.

It might appear to produce results, but would harm,in the long run,physically and spiritually.

Packaged Yoga to suit masses is injurious.

I have written that the effort in Yoga is to control Chitta through these steps of Patanjali.

The process of controlling Chitta direct through Breath control is callled Vaasi Yoga and Lord Shiva was the First to practice it.

There is an Upanishad in the,Sama Veda dedicated to Yoga process.

This was taught bt Lord Dattatreya to Sage Sankrithi.

This is the Jabali Darshana Upanishad.

Jabala Darshana Upanishad, Translation by Sri.P.R.Ramchander.

Om ! Let my limbs and speech, Prana, eyes, ears, vitality
And all the senses grow in strength.
All existence is the Brahman of the Upanishads.
May I never deny Brahman, nor Brahman deny me.
Let there be no denial at all:
Let there be no denial at least from me.
May the virtues that are proclaimed in the Upanishads be in me,
Who am devoted to the Atman; may they reside in me.
Om ! Let there be Peace in me !
Let there be Peace in my environment !
Let there be Peace in the forces that act on me !

God Dattatreya is the reincarnation of the four armed Vishnu and he is the ruler of the world. Sankrithi is a great devotee and a sage and is an expert in yoga and also a disciple of Dattatreya. He approached his teacher (God Dattatreya) with humility and with folded hands, when his teacher was alone and requested him, “Oh God, please tell me about the science of yoga which has eight branches and five different sthanas (places) by knowing which I will attain salvation. Dattatreya told him, “Hey Sankrithi, I shall tell you about Yoga which has eight branches. The eight branches are Yama, Niyama, Aasana, Pranayama, Prathyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi.

Yama which is the first is the practice of non-violence, truth, non possession of properties of others, celibacy, mercy, honesty, patience, stability, food discipline and cleanliness. 1

Niyama is the ten aspects of penance, joy, orthodoxy, charity, worship of god, hearing of philosophy, fear for bad actions, clear intellect, chanting and austerities. 2

The nine important Asanas (sitting positions) are Swasthika (Swastika), Gomukha (cows face), Padma (lotus), Veera (valorous), Simha (lion), Badra (safe), Muktha (free), Mayura (peacock) and Sukha (pleasant). Oh sage, that position, whatever it may be but which makes you comfortable and gives you courage to undertake Yoga is called Sukhasana. People who do not have strength to take up other positions can use that. Victory in the seating position is like victory over the three worlds. Once the Asana is fixed, one should practice Pranayama.  3

Either in the top of the mountain or by the shore of the river or under a Bilwa tree in the forest, after choosing a clean place which is acceptable to the mind and after establishing a place to do tapas (Asram), sit in the Asana which is most familiar facing either east or north. Then sit with the body neck and head in a straight line, cover the face and concentrate the vision with best possible attention on the nectar flowing from the fourth state of the moon like dot at the end of the nose. Draw the air inside using the lungs, store it in the stomach, meditate on the flame of fire inside the body and then shift meditation to the root of fire with its sound and dot. Then the intelligent one will exhale and draw the Prana using Pingala (Nadi which is tawny and is on the right side of Sushumna Nadi) and meditate on the Agni Bheeja. Again he has to exhale and inhale again in the middle using the Ida (Nadi which is pleasant and is on the left side of Sushumna). One should have to live in a secret place practicing this exercise six times for 3-4 days or 3-4 weeks at dawn, noon and dusk. This would help him to clean up the Nadis. Slowly symbols will start showing up. Body will become light, the fire in the stomach will burn well and the voice would become clearer. These are the symbols of Siddhi (getting mastery). Till you see this, you have to practice. 4

Now I will tell you about Prathyahara. To use force and divert the sensory organs which normally travel according to their nature is Prathyahara. Those who know Brahma say that seeing whatever we see as the form of Brahman is Prathyahara. Prathyahara also is doing clean or unclean acts as those belonging to Brhaman. Further doing daily religious activities after dedicating them to God and similarly doing the activities which we desire is also Prathyahara. Apart from this inhaling air (oxygen) and stopping it in different places is also Prathyahara. The wise man would sit in Swasthikasana, draw his breath till it fills up from head to toe and hold it in two feet, mooladhara, stomach, middle of the heart, bottom of the neck, jaw, middle of the eyelids, forehead and at the top of the skull. Then he should leave out the belief that the body is oneself and make that thought as nirvikalpa and merge it with Paramatma. The experts in Vedanta say that this is true Prathyahara. There is nothing that cannot be attained by those who practice like this.  5

Now I will tell you about the five types of Dharana (holding steady – a stage in meditation – here we try to hold on what we are mediating upon without wavering). In the sky which is in the middle of the body, Dharana of the sky outside should be made. Similarly in the breath, Dharana of air outside should be made. In the fire in the stomach, Dharana of the fire outside should be made. In the fluid aspects of the body, Dharana of the water outside should be made. In the earthy aspects of the body, Dharana of the earth outside should be made. Sage, also it is necessary to chant the pancha bhootha mantras viz., Ham, Yam, Ram, Vam and Lam. It is said that this very great Dharana destroys all sins. In the body up to the knee is the aspect of the earth, from there till hip it is the aspect of water, up to the heart is the aspect of fire, up to middle of eyelids is the aspect of air and then up to the middle of the skull is the aspect of the sky. In the aspect of earth Brahma has to be placed, in the aspect of water Vishnu should be placed, in the aspect of fire Rudra should be placed, in the aspect of air Iswara should be placed and in the aspect of sky, the Sadashiva should be placed. Hey great sage, I will also tell you another Dharana. In the Jeevatma, that lord Shiva who rules over everything and is the personification of wisdom should be placed. To get rid of all sins, the wise man should suppress the gods like Brahma in the causative self, and place the Avyakta (that which is not clear) which is formless and which is the root cause inside the entire soul with the chanting of pranava. He should control the sensory organs by mind and should merge them with the soul. 6

I will now tell you about Dhyana (meditation) which destroys sorrow. Dhyana should be done of that Maheswara, who is the medicine for problems arising out of birth, who is the discipline and fundamental basis of the world who is of the form of Para Brahma, who has the masculine power upwards, who is of the form of the world, who is Virupaksha, and who is the head of all yogis as “I am He”. Then continue to do Dhyana of him who is beyond the reach of meditation, who is the personification of Sachidananda Brahman and who is soul in person as “I am He” for attaining salvation. In the mind of that great Purusha who practices like this, the science of Vedanta would automatically appear. There is no doubt about it.  7

Now I will tell you about Samadhi (deep meditative state)  which destroys the ills of birth and death. Samadhi is that state in which there is knowledge that Jeevatma and Paramatma are one. Atma (soul) is filled all over for ever and does not have motion or stain. Though it is one, due to the effects of illusion, it appears as different objects. Really there is no difference between these so called objects. When one sees all objects within himself and him as a part of all objects, He attains Brahman.  When one drowns himself in Samadhi and does not see different objects as different , then he attains the single aim of salvation. When he sees only the true soul and the entire world appears as an illusion to him and he is cured of all sorrow.

Thus advised by Lord Dattatreya the sage Sankrithi fully lost all his fear and attained that blissfull state, deep in himself.

Om ! Let my limbs and speech, Prana, eyes, ears, vitality
And all the senses grow in strength.
All existence is the Brahman of the Upanishads.
May I never deny Brahman, nor Brahman deny me.
Let there be no denial at all:
Let there be no denial at least from me.
May the virtues that are proclaimed in the Upanishads be in me,
Who am devoted to the Atman; may they reside in me.
Om ! Let there be Peace in me !
Let there be Peace in my environment !
Let there be Peace in the forces that act on me !

Four Tools To Remove Negative Thoughts Yoga Sutra 1.33

The Mind,Manas,ascribes file folders like agreeable,disagreeable,the Genus the Stimuli belongs to.

It does not go further,excepting associating the Stimuli with Emotion.

But is Buddhi,this can be translated roughly as Intellect ,passes judgement by assigning Labels such as Correct,Incorrect,factual judgements ;Right or Wrong ,Moral Judgement.


Indian Philosophy distinguishes three aspects,

Between Brain,Mind,Intellect.

The Brain,the physical organ receives the signals,Stimulii.

At the this level what is received remains as raw Data.

The Mind,Manas,ascribes file folders  like agreeable,disagreeable,the Genus the Stimuli belongs to.

It does not go further,excepting associating the Stimuli with Emotion.

But is Buddhi,this can be translated roughly as Intellect ,passes judgement by assigning Labels such as Correct,Incorrect,factual judgements ;Right or Wrong ,Moral Judgement.

How and why Buddhi behaves the way it does?

It is because of Chitta,which is Consciousness.

The Individual Consciousness is,till it Realizes its Identity with the Universal Reality,Brahman,is tethered to Swabhava,one’s natural disposition and Karmaphala,fruits of actions.

More of this later.

As Yoga is the effort to effect Union of the Individual Consciousness with the Universal One,the Chitta is to be corrected,purified.

The reflections in the Chitta,when it is not fully Realized,is conditioned be downstream Data from Intellect,Mind.

This Data has to be properly reflected upon.

The negative inputs gathered as explained in the earlier Sutras are to be handled by the following four tools.

Friendship,

Mercy,

Gladness, and

Indifference.

Patanjali Yoga Sutra 1.33.image
Patanjali Yoga sutra1.33

Swami Vivekananda explains thus,

‘maitreekarunamuditopekshanan
sukhaduhkhapunyapunyavishayanan
bhavanatashchittaprasadanam’

Friendship, mercy, gladness, indifference, being
thought of in regard to subjects, happy, unhappy,
good and evil respectively, pacify the Chitta.
We must have these four sorts of ideas. We must have
friendship for all; we must be merciful towards those that are
in misery; when people are happy we ought to be happy, and
to the wicked we must be indifferent. So with all subjects that
come before us. If the subject is a good one, we shall feel
friendly towards it; if the subject of thought is one that is
miserable we must be merciful towards the subject. If it is
good we must be glad, if it is evil we must be indifferent.
These attitudes of the mind towards the different subjects that
come before it will make the mind peaceful. Most of our
difficulties in our daily lives come from being unable to hold
our minds in this way. For instance, if a man does evil to us,

instantly we want to react evil, and every reaction of evil shows that we are not able to hold the Chitta down; it comes out in waves towards the object, and we lose our power. Eve

Every reaction in the form of hatred or evil is so much loss to the
mind, and every evil thought or deed of hatred, or any thought
of reaction, if it is controlled, will be laid in our favour. It is
not that we lose by thus restraining ourselves; we are gaining
infinitely more than we suspect. Each time we suppress
hatred, or a feeling of anger, it is so much good energy stored
up in our favour; that piece of energy will be converting into the higher powers.

Who Are The Ancient Rishis Priests Of Rig Veda

These Rishis are numerous.

Each Mantra has a Rishi.

So there are many Rishis who complied the Vedas.

But the earliest,first Rishis who performed the Duties of Priests are Ten.

These Families represent the First Rishis of the Vedas.


Vedas are earliest Literature recorded in Human History.

This,along with the other Three Vedas,Yajur( Sukla and Krishna),Sama and Atharva forms the basic reference authority on everything related to Hinduism

The words of the Vedas are final

Each Veda has four parts.

They are,

Samhitas,

  • The Samhitas consists of hymns of praise of Gods
  • The Brahmanas are rituals and prayers to guide the priests in their duties.
  • The Aranyakas concern worship and meditation.
  • The Upanishads consist of the mystical and philosophical teachings of Hinduism.

This corresponds to the Four Stations of Life

Brahmacharya,the life of celibacy and studentship,Samhitas)

Gruhastha,Married Life,( Brahmanas)

Vanaprastha,Retired Life,when one having completed his family responsibilities meditates on the Reality of Brahman,preferably in a forest.(Aranyaka) and

Sanyasin,the State of total renunciation,seeking answers to Life and Realizing Self( Upanishad)

Though each stage of Life is called Asrama,Station of Tranquility is connected one aspect of  the Vedas,there is no bar in learning all the components of the Vedas,though one is advised to practice what is meant for his Station,Asrama.

Of these Four Vedas,the Rig Veda is the oldest.

The Vedas were compiled by Seers,called Rishis.

The Vedas are meant to be heard and learnt.

They were transmitted orally,never in a written form,though they were written on Palm leaves.

These Rishis are numerous.

Each Mantra has a Rishi.

So there are many Rishis who complied the Vedas.

But the earliest,first Rishis who performed the Duties of Priests are Ten.

These Families represent the First Rishis of the Vedas.

They are,

  1. ANgirases,
  2. BhRgus,
  3. ViSvAmitras,
  4. VasiSThas,
  5. Agastyas,
  6. KaSyapas 
  7. Atris,
  8. Kevala-ANgirases (KaNvas in the Rigveda)
  9. Kevala-BhRgus (GRtsamadas in the Rigveda).
  10.  Bharatas.*   

* This family does not figure as a separate family in later priestly traditions, which place kings who became RSis among either the ANgirases or the BhRgus.

Gayatri Kavacha Nyasa Details How To Chant Lord Narayana

Lord Narayana describes the inner meaning and procedures of the Gayatri Manta to Sage Narada.
The Gayatri mantra is from the Rig Veda.

Narayana explains Gayatri from Yajur, Sama and Atharva Vedas.

Lord Narayana describes the inner meaning and procedures of the Gayatri Manta to Sage  Narada.

The Gayatri mantra is from the Rig Veda.

The Gāyatrī Mantra, also known as the Sāvitrī mantra, is a highly revered mantra from the Rig Veda (Mandala 3.62.10)

Narayana explains Gayatri from Yajur, Sama and Atharva Vedas.

I am providing the Armor of the Gayatri Mantra.

This forms the Nyasa.

Gayatri Mata. Jpg
Goddess Gayatri.

This is the Kavacha one has before chanting the Gayatri Mantra.

Now hear the Risis, Chhandas, etc., of this Kavacha :–

Brahmâ, Visnu and Mahes’vara are the Risis;

the Rik, Yajus, Sâma and Atharva Vedas are the Chhandas;

the Paramâ Kalâ Gâyatrî of the nature of Brahmâ is the Devatâ;

“Tat” in Gâyatrî is the Vîja; “Bharga” is the S’akti; and “Dhîyah” is the Kîlaka; and its viniyoga (application) is in getting the Moksa (liberation.).

With the first four syllables touch the heart; with the next three letters touch the head;

with the next four letters touch the tuft on the crown of the head; with the next three

letters on the Kavacha; with the next four letters on the eyes and with the last four letters

make the Nyâsa, all over the body repeating “Astrâya Phat,” O Nârada! Hear now the

Dhyânam of Gâyatrî, that grants all desires.

The Gâyatrî Devî has five faces; one of which is of white colour; and the other four is of pearl, Vidruma, golden, and Nîlakântamani colour respectively.

Each face has got three eyes; on the head there is a crown of jewels and the digit of the Moon is shining there. Her body is composed of the twenty-four tattvas.

She has ten hands :– On the top right and left hands there are two lotuses; lower down, there are disc and conch shell; lower down, there are rope and skull; lower down, there are noose and goad; and on the bottom hands right and left she is making signs of “No fear” and “ready to grant boons.”

Thus meditating on S’rî Gâyatrî, one is to recite the Kavacha thus :–

Let the Gâyatrî Devî protect my front; Sâvitrî Devî protect my right;

the Sandhyâ Devî, my back and

the Devî Sarasvatî, my left.

Let my Mother Pârvatî Devî protect my quarters.

Let Jalas’âyinî protect the southeast;

Yâtudhâna Bhayankarî protect my South-west;

Pavamânavilâsinî my north-west;

Rudrarûpinî Rudrânî protect my north-east.

Let Brahmânî protect my top and

Vaisnavî protect my nether regions

. Let the word “Tat” in the Gâyatrî protect my legs;

“Savituh” protect my Knees;

“Varenyam,” protect my loins;

“Bhargah,” my navel.

Let “Devasya” protect my heart;

“Dhîmahî” protect my neck;

“Dhîyah,” protect my eyes;

“Yah,” protect my forehead;

“Nah” protect my head; and

“Prachodayât” protect the tuft on the crown of my head.

Again let the “Tat” of the twenty-four syllabled Gâyatrî protect my head;

“Sa,” protect my forehead;

“Vi” protect my eyes;

“Tu” my cheeks;

“Va,” protect my nostrils;

“Re,” my mouth;

“ni” protect my upper lip;

“Yah” protect my lower lip;

“Bha” within my face;

“rgo,” protect my cheeks;

“De,” my throat; “Va” my shoulders;

“Sya” my right hand;

“Dhi” my navel;

“ma,” my heart,

“Hi,” my belly;

“Dhî,” my navel;

“Yo” my loins;

“Yo”, my anus;

“nah,” my thighs,

“Pra,” my Knees;

“Cho” my shanks ,

“Da” my heels;

“Yâ” my legs;

and let “at” protect all my sides.

O Nârada! This divine Kavacha of the Devî Gâyatrî can baffle hundreds and thousands of obstructions and evils; can grant sixty-four Kalâs and liberation. By the glory of this Kavacha, man can become free from all evils and can attain the state of Brahmâ. Moreover whoever reads or hears this acquires the fruits of making a gift of a thousand cows.
