Perfect Sri Chakra By Adi Shankaracharya Sringeri

FeaturedSri Chakra 3D .image.

The Sri Chakra of Devi is perfect synchoronization of Universal Reality and the Individual Soul.

The Advaita system propounded Adi Shankaracharya,based on the Mahavakyas of the Vedas define Reality as Brahman .

It is is beyond Attributes.

It is beyond senses and a Noumenon.

It is Absolute with no reference to relate to.

The Individual Soul,Jiva is but a part of Brahman.

It is not separate,different from Brahman.

The individual soul,the world of Names and Forms are illusory in the sense that they are Relative.

The Individual Soul and the world of Names and Forms is because of Illusion.

This Illusion,at the Individual level is Avidya,Nescience,absence of Absolute Knowledge or loosely put Ignorance.

At the Universal level it is,Called Maya.
The Reality ,Brahman is the emobodiment of Being,Consciousness and Bliss.

SAT,CHIT,ANANDA.

Once ignorance,Avidya is removed the false ,Relative knowledge gives way to Absolute Knowledge,Brahma Gnana,when the Individual soul becomes aware of its original state,that of Reality,Brahman.

This,in short,is Advaita.

As it is impossible for the human mind to concentrate on mere principles,Hinduism,as a first step,recommends Personal God.

To facilitate the process of integrating the Universal Soul with the Individual soul,four tools are suggested.

1.Gods/Goddesses.

2.Sounds in the form of Mantras

3.Geometrical shapes and

4.Combination of Sound and Geometrical shapes,Mantra and Yantra,which form Tantra.

One of the most effective Yantra is Sri Chakra of Devi.

Sri Chakra and OM are interchangeable.

Adi Shankaracharya established Sri Chakra invmany places,including Kolluru and Sringeri.

The perfect Sri Chakra can be found at Sringeri,the Mutt established by Adi Shankaracharya.

The ancient temple of Sri Sharada, the presiding deity of Sringeri has a glorious history that begins with the setting up of the Dakshinamnaya Peetham by Sri Shankara Bhagavatpada. Originally it was an unpretentious shrine with the Murti of Sharada made of sandalwood, installed over the Sri Chakra that Sri Adi Shankara carved on a rock. Subsequently Sri Bharati Krishna Tirtha and Sri Vidyaranya had a temple built in the Kerala style, with timber and tiled roof. Sri Bharati Krishna Tirtha substituted the sandalwood idol with the present golden idol.

Sri Sacchidananda Shivabhinava Nrisimha Bharati raised the present structure in granite with polished granite walling round the sanctum and Sri Chandrasekhara Bharati consecrated the new temple in May 1916. Sri Abhinava Vidyatirtha made several improvements in the temple. The Mahamandapam has huge stone pillars exquisitely carved with deities like Durga, Raja Rajeshwari, Dwarapalakas and Devis which are all sculpted according to the Shilpa Sastras practised in Tamilnadu.

Sanctified by the worship of an unbroken succession of Acharyas of the highest purity, loftiest devotion and unsurpassed mantric powers, the Murti of Sri Sharada radiates grace and blessings.’

Mantra Temple For Continuous High Fever Kooduthurai Bhavani

FeaturedSangameswarar temple,Kooduthurai.Bhavani. image

 

Many have written asking me whether there is any alternative because chanting of Indrakshi Siva Kavacham is difficult and the procedure is arduous.

My observation is that we are prepared to follow the instructions of a doctor, though at times, it has no relevance to the problem and the medicine prescribed might be totally irrelevant.

We are cured, in my opinion, because of our faith in the doctor.

Then why don’t we follow the same approach towards Mantras and Pariharas?

There is a Temple and a specific Mantra for high fever.

The Sangameshwara Temple, Kooduthurai , near Bhavaani.

Nearest Railway Station/Bus Station.  Erode.

Airport, Coimbatore.

Temple timings 630 am to 12noon and from 4to 8 pm.

The temple has a Jurahareswara(Lord of Fever, Shiva)

Jurahareshwara with three heads, three arms and three legs is found only in a few temples in Tamilnadu. He is found here in a seperate shrine and interestingly the dwarapalakas in this shrine also have three heads, arms and legs. Offering Rice, Pepper Rasam, and Araikeerai Kootu (Greens with Dhal) to the Lord is said to relieve people of fever and other ailments.

Chanting of

“Bhasmayudhaaya Vidhmahe

Why How Chottanikkara Bhagavathy Temple Cures Mental Illness.

FeaturedChottanikkara Bhagavathy.image.

The three devis of Hinduism, from the philosophical perspective represent three aspects of Human nature.

The desire to act,the action part impelled by the results one anticipates and the wisdom and courage to act upon a course of action.

These three are represented by Saraswathi,Lakshmi and Durga.

Most of us not aware of the fact that Saraswathi is the One who initiates the procees of concept formation,forms words and makes one express clearly in a way that it is understood

While we take Lakshmi as only the Goddess of Wealth,we are not aware of the subtler aspect of Lakshmi.

We have Lakshmi Tantra for Self Realization.

Please read my article on this.

Even if one forms a concept for action,the human nature demands results,most of the time in terms of material comforts/wealth to impel him to act.

This is what Lakshmi does.

Then one should have the wisdom and courage to choose a course of action.

And this is in the Realm of Durga.

There are three levels of Speech.

The Concept,

The process fron Concept to Thought and

Expression of Thoughts.

These three are controlled by Gayatri,Savitri and Sarasvathi respectively.

When thoughts,concepts,the transformation process are disturbed ,we have mental disturbances,and Autism.

The Chitta,the highest level of Cognition ,when disturbed,results in mental illness.

To alleviate this,Saraswathi ,along with Savitri,Gayatri,is to be propitiated,along with Lakshmi to impel the corrective course and Durga to grant wisdom and courage.

There is one temple,where all the Three Devis are present in one Form,where the The Three Sukthas,Saraswathi,Sri and Durga sukthas,when chanted here along with Homa,cures one of Mental illness.

This is Chottanikkara Bhagavathy temple,Kerala,India.

The Chottanikkara (correction of JyotiannakkaraDevi Temple (Malayalamചോറ്റാനിക്കര ഭഗവതി ക്ഷേത്രം) is a famous temple of mother goddess Shakthi devi or Rajarajeshwari known as Sree Bhagavathi. Maha lakshmi is supposed to be residing in Chottanikkara along with Lord Vishnu. ..

Chottanikkara Devi is worshipped at the temple, in three different forms: as Maha Saraswati (mother of knowledge) in the morning, draped in white; Maha Lakshmi (mother of wealth) at noon, draped in crimson; and as Sree Durga (mother of power) in the evening, decked in blue. Supreme lord Shiva, Ganesh & Lord Dharmasastha (Ayyappa) is also worshiped at the temple. People suffering from mental illnesses & commonly visit the temple, as Chottanikkara devi is thought to cure her devotees. One should not miss the ‘Guruthi Pooja’ in the ‘Keezhkkaavu’ temple at Chottanikkara. Goddess ‘keezhkkaavu devi’ is believed to be ‘Bhadrakali'(Mahakali), in her fierce form or ugra form. Bhadrakali, is a form of mother Kali, supposed to be born from the third eye of lord Shiva, to kill the demon king ‘Daruka’. Guruthi pooja is a ritual done at late evening to invoke goddess Mahakali. Earlier ‘Guruthi Pooja’ was done only on Fridays. But nowadays, it is performed every day. Mental diseases are believed to be totally cured by Keezhkkaavu Kali…

How to reach Chottanikkara.

The nearest station (main) is at Tripunithura railway station about 6.4 km; another nearby one is Ernakulam about 17 km away from Chottanikkara. The two railway stations in Kochi are Ernakulam Junction and Ernakulam Town.

Road: KSRTC Central Bus station is near the Ernakulam Junction railway station. There are plenty of private buses available for travel from Ernakulam to other cities.

Temple Legend.

Another legend associated to the temple was that of the spiritual leader Shankaracharya(Adi Shankara). During the time where he lived, Adi Shankara realised that there wasn’t a single temple in Kerala that signified the worship of goddess Saraswati. As a result, he himself went to the Chamundi hills in Karnataka and meditated for many days for the goddess to appear before him. His meditation bore fruit and before him stood the stunningly beautiful goddess, clad in white. On enquiry, he said that he would like to bring the goddess to Kerala and establish a temple dedicated to her worship. This way the people from Kerala would not have to go such far off distances to worship her, as in the case for those who were old and aged. After a lot of persuasion, the goddess agreed; she would follow him by foot wherever he went, but only on one condition. If he trusts her, then he was not allowed to look back to see if she followed him or not. If he did, then wouldn’t go any further. He agrees and they proceed walking. They were walking down the Kodachadri hills, with Shankara leading the way and goddess’ anklets tinkling and letting him know that she was with him. After walking some distance, the tinkling stopped all of a sudden. Shankara waited a few moments and stole a quick look backwards to find the goddess still with him, watching him with reproach. In keeping with the condition, the goddess stopped right there. Shankara, however, was not one to give up. He apologized profusely for breaking the condition and repeatedly begged and pleaded with the goddess to go with him to Kerala. After many pleas, the goddess agrees to a compromise. From early hours of morning, she would come and appear before the devotees at the Chottanikkara temple. Then in the afternoon, she would return to the spot where she stopped. This is the spot which would turn out to be the Mookambika temple. Since then, before the doors of the main sanctum in Mookambika temple were opened, the sanctum doors of the Chottanikkara temple were opened during early morning hours in honour of worshipping goddess Saraswati, where the idol is clad in white garments.’

Linga With Meteorite Roof Madurai Meenakshi Temple VR Tour


I have written on Shiva Temple,Thittai,Tamil Nadu,India,where the  Stone roof,made of

Moon Stone drips water on Shiva Linga every 24 minutes.

There are temples in India where the roof,Vimana is made of Meteorite.

To my knowledge, there are three such temples.

Somasundareswara,Madurai Meenakshi Temple,

Hanuman Temple,Lonar,Maharashtra, and

Shiva Temple atcThiriveezhimazhalai,Thiruvarur District, Tamil Nadu.

In Madurai the roof of Somasundareswara is made of Meterorite.

The legend has it that Indra,Chief of Devas built the roof.

Tamil poems refer to this.

This type of roof is called ‘Vinnizhai Vimanam,the roof made of Stone falling from the sky.
