[Thread] #BharatKeMeiteiHindu This is the story of #RajaKhagemba the Pride of #Bharat and #Dharma The story begins in 1606 A.D in the Kingdom of Kangleipak State [Manipur & Burma] Having put down a rebellion led by his younger brother Sanogba the embers of war still shouldered.
2. The Antagonist of this episode was the Kings younger brother who after his first failed attempt sought the help of Muslims of Taraff - famed for their prowess with Muskets. The Royal Chronicle Cheitharol Kumbab remains illusive on the spark but there are clues.
3. Enter Muhammed Sani a 17th Century Noble man and ally of the renegade prince. Who also happened to be the Younger brother Muhammed Nazir the Ruler of Taraff located in modern day Sylhet. This rag tag coalition assembled their troops MS bringing a 1000 of his own crack troops.

1. It gladdens my heart to know that 1947 was not merely a secular transition of power, but it had a ritualistic element in the form of #Sengol or Dharma-Danda given to the new head of Indian State accompanied by ritualistic performances.
2. For me this ritual establishment of Dharma-Danda (#Sengol) is more important than the establishment of independent, but secular state. However, the subsequent sidelining of it by putting in some museum under the heading of 'Golden Stick' though unfortunate is not surprising.
3. Indian State has been inimical to Hindu interests since independence, so sidelining of #Sengol is not surprising. However, I feel its re-establishment in the new parliamentary building is a good nimitta (indication) that may be there could be change of winds in coming decades.

Want the next gen to be comfortable with who they are? Here are a few thoughts. Feel free to add them
1. Talk politics in front of them - let them learn to listen - answer their questions. Teach them to be aware but not talk about it in school etc.
2. Talk caste - let them hear
it from you and not from someone who is going to guilt trip them
3. Talk about the ecosystem (esp D if u are in TN and how it will be loaded against you)
4. Teach them they neither have to be apologetic or do reparations for perceived atrocities
5. Teach them to respect every
person and religion but not to expect that it will be reciprocated
6. Teach them about doctrinal faith in other religions and how these religion view polytheistic or idolatry religions
7. Teach them how the law can work against them and how to conduct themselves in a group

🧵#Jagadguru #Shankaracharya #SriSri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji: While engaging in noble deeds, one must not cause intense strain to one’s own physical body such as engaging in unduly long periods of fast. The physical body being the instrument to engaging in #Dharma must

also be taken care of. Likewise, one need not attempt to do what is much beyond one’s capacity. Not all can desire to perform the Atirudra Mahayuga. Instead, a Ekadasha Rudra performed with sincere devotion and faith will bring about one’s welfare.

The intention to engage in noble deeds is important & good but we must be principled even in such matters.Noble deeds must be engaged in without causing inconvenience or harm to others & without getting any kind of support from unrighteous persons.

the real happiness lies in us, we are not aware of it because of ignorance. This ignorance does not allow us to escape the attractions of worldly pleasures. We deweed, put manure, water and then sow the seeds in the field. We also continuously watch the growth

of the plants to get good harvests. So we should de-weed our minds of the #adharma or wrong behavior, manure it with #dharma or righteousness, and observe our behavior continuously and carefully to cleanse the mind. Then the mind becomes worthy and potent to realise the

🚩An imp thread🧵 regarding #HoliFestival


💫 Clear confusion regarding date & timings of #HolikaDahan '23

🌉 #Holi Jagran Importance

🪅Harmful effects of #Chemical Colors

🎋How to make Alternative #Homemade #Organic Colors

🔮#VedicHoli with ♻️#Palash
Date & Timing of every #Hindu festival is considered according to the Panchang which is a detailed calculation & study of stars, constellations and planetary positions.

Hence this year #HolikaDahan will occur on 2 days based on the timings of sunset.
There are 4 Maharatris in Sanatan Dharma which bestow maximum spiritual benefits to the spritual aspirant who makes the most of this auspicious time.

#Mahashivratri, #Holi, Shri Krishna #Janmashtami & #Deepawali. The sadhana performed during these pious hours acts as catalyst.

Here's a thread with key lessons from each chapter of the Bhagavad Gita.
Chapter 1:

Every duty comes with challenges. Learn to embrace the hardships - thats half the battle won.
Chapter 2:

You will never know peace, long as you are attached.

Peace comes from detachment.

🧵Words of #Sringeri #Jagadguru #Shankaracharya #SriSri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji on his Parama Guru (Sri Sri Sri Chandrashekhara Bharati Mahaswamiji):

"As said in his Astottara, a lump of earth, a stone & gold were the same to him, & he did not value one above the other"

Brahmasri Sri Virupaksha Sastrigal was appointed to complete the study of the Sastras (for the new Guru). Sri Virupaksha Sastrigal, who was famous in those days for his erudition in Nyaya and Vedanta, was astonished at the intellectual power of the Sri Guru. The study which

took others three years to complete was finished by the guru in one year. Greatly surprised, Sri Sastrigal used to share his gratification with those around him.

The extent of scholarship acquired by the guru could be measured by the commentary which he wrote on

Jagadguru Shankaracharya #SriSri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji: People may be classified as Astikas & Nastikas. An Astika has faith in the existence of God, Dharma, reincarnation, & the Vedas. One who has neither of these beliefs is classified a Nastika.
A Nastika cannot easily 1/n
be taught. Even a man who is completely ignorant can be taught. One who knows everything can also be told. But a Nastika is one who is like a man with half-baked knowledge.

#Jagadguru #Shankaracharya #SriSri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji: We have to take care to spend our lives every day purposefully. That is why it is said –

Finally decided to write.

It must be said unequivocally that the Safety of #Women is ultimately that of the State, Culture, Society, Family and Self and in that order.

The unfortunate death of Shraddha is ultimately on the State & Society. This failure is ours.

This failure was at multiple levels.

At one level, perpetrators dont fear the State. They dont fear the Police. They fear the Society the least.

The State has taken the agency away from the Society and People. Has made intervention very difficult.

In addition, Modernity has pushed Nuclear-Family so much that families are cutoff from their communities and have to deal with their crisis all alone.

This has also made it others to less intervene or not even recognize others problems.

Kailāsa is revived on this planet earth, to give superconscious breakthrough, and to revive ancient, enlightened Hindu civilizational nation.
Kailāsa is a civilizational nation. Even though we have a territory, defined territory, we are not just territory focused nation. With the grace of Paramaśiva, we do have a sovereign territory, sovereign land in more than one place.
The purpose of Kailāsa is to revive enlightened civilization. Many people asked Me, “When India is there, Nepal is there, why Kailāsa?” Kailāsa is not a competition for India or Nepal or Bali or Thailand or any nation! We are not a competition for any nation.

Reference Varaha Purana

Sage Agastya asked Rudra "O Lord, tell me at which time are you Rudra, at which time are you Brahma and at which time are you Visnu"

Rudra Replied:

"Visnu is Supreme Brahman and in Vedas and sastras he is said to have 3 forms. Visnu for sake of Devas assumes human form in every yuga and praises me. For the sake of the world & gods, I worship these two forms of the lord (divine and human) in the Svetadvipa in Krtayuga.

At the time of creation, I extol Brahma and become time. And in that Krtayuga, Brahma, Devas and Asuras extol me.

People who seek pleasure sacrifice to me in my form as linga, and those who seek liberation sacrifice to me mentally in my form as the thousand-headed.

Abhimanyu, the son of Arjuna, was the incarnation of Varcas the son of Candra. When Lord Visnu promised Bhumidevi that he would incarnate on Earth to get rid of asuras who burden the Earth, Image

the devas too decided to be born on Earth. A conference took place between the devas. Candra told Devas that he does not want to send Varcas whom he loves but it is not correct to stand in the way of the plan of the gods. Candra put a condition that his son would born as

the son of Arjuna and he will not be separated for more than sixteen years. In the sixteenth year, Varcas will return to him.

This is why Abhimanyu was killed in his sixteenth year when he entered the Cakra Vyuha set up by Kauravas.
