Our scriptures say Mananāt trāyatē iti mantrah. Continuous repetition (Mananāt) of that which protects (trāyatē) from suffering is called mantra.

When we lose ourselves in chanting mantras, something magical happens. Breath becomes deeper and our focus starts to shift.

The energy of the mantra begins to engage with our soul. The Sanskrit syllables become sparkling waves in sunlight and bathe us with joy, hope and purification.

Starting today, we bring you the essential mantras that have been practiced and awakened by the ancient sages of India. Apart from healing and protection, these mantras bring material and spiritual abundance.

The game had its origin in India and was called #Moksha Patam or Parama Padam or Mokshapat. It was used to teach Hindu Dharma and Hindu values to children. The British renamed it #snakes and #Ladders.

The game was created by the 13th-century poet saint Gyandev. The ladders in
the game represented virtues and the #snakes indicated vices. The game was played with cowrie shells and dices. Later through time, the game underwent several modifications but the meaning is the same i.e good deeds take us to heaven and evil to a cycle of re-births. Certain
references take the game back to the 2nd century BC.

In the original game square, 12 was faith, 51 was Reliability, 57 was Generosity, 76 was #Knowledge, and 78 was Asceticism. These were the squares where the ladder was found. Square 41 was for Disobedience, 44 for Arrogance,

#Thread - Kharosa Caves : A lost treasure of the great Hindu Civilisation

Built around the 6th century during the Gupta Era, Kharosa Caves are one of the finest examples of marvellous #Hindu architecture.

These 12 caves are located 45 kms away from Latur.

As per local legends, Kharosa is the place where Lord #Ram and Lakshman killed the demons Khar & Dushan.

Ramwadi, a village adjacent to Kharosa is believed to be a spot where Lord Ram, Maa Sita and Lakshman stayed during their exile.

The first and second cave are a G+1 structure.

Both these caves are interconnected.

Unfortunately, the first cave has now been defiled. It appears that the statue in this cave is of the ‘Trimurti’.

You can also see the garbage littered in the corner.

THREAD: With the help of Lord #Ganesha, here's my humble astrological analysis of events that are likely to lead to the victory of #President #Trump in the #USElections2020.

@realDonaldTrump
@SidneyPowell1 @LLinWood
@RudyGiuliani @JennaEllisEsq
@GenFlynn @GoJackFlynn
Dec 10 - Jan 3: Venus enters Scorpio and will stay there till Jan 3. This denotes the final phase of the “Art of War (deception)” where political master-strokes will play out (in secret) favoring President Trump.
Dec 11 - Dec 14: Sun and Ketu will have an exact conjunction on Dec 11 at 25º in Scorpio and then there’s also the Total Solar Eclipse on Dec 14. We will see a crisis of confidence fueled by the belief that even SCOTUS might not give President Trump the timely relief he needs.

1-To define God is to deny #God.

You can give the definition to a finite object.

How can you define limitless or the #Infinite Being

..who is the source and ultimate cause for everything? (1/15)

2-If you define God you are limiting the limitless one, you are confining Him with concepts of mind.

God is beyond the reach of the gross mind,

..but He can be #realized through #Japa and #meditation

..with a pure, subtle and one-pointed mind. (2/15)
3-#Manasika #Puja (mental worship) is more powerful than external Puja with flowers, etc.

Does an empty house in your chart mean, that no action will happen there?

And are these meaningless?! (1/8)

Small Eyes!

#1: No matter what the obstacles in life, they should never cloud our vision, the aims should never dwindle, those hopes that harness our dreams should never die.
