Why does Adhik Maas (Purshottam maas) exist..?

To understand why Adhik Maas comes, we have to understand the Surya Siddhanta.Vedic astrology mathematics is used in the calculation of the Hindu Panchang.
@mysql_sync @InfoVedic

As per this theory, there are 365 days, 15 days, 31 seconds and 30 Vipal in a solar year. But on the other hand, when we calculate the lunar year, it consists of 354 days, 22 hours, 1 second and Vipal. @Temple_Phantom

This leads to a difference of 10/11 days, 53 hours, 30 seconds and 7 seconds in both the solar year and the lunar year. This difference remains every year. To overcome this difference between the solar year and the lunar year, the idea of ​​Adhik Maas came into existence.

Modern science - "everything came from nothing", "everything is just matter and energy".
In that case, life has no value, and it does not matter if one decides to live or die.
Vedas state, cosmic consciousness gave rise to material universe, not vice versa.
Part of truth.
"Earth was created in few days"
Not sure if it considers general relativity.
The man was a yogi and taught love and devotion, and said was a son of god. Explained trinity.
Vedas state, atma - paramātma - brahman. Everyone is part and parcel of god.
Part of truth.

Adding another possible #Scientific process through #quantum mechanics and #psychology.

• Mind over body (psycho-somatism).
• Sage psychologically writes the curse / boon in a person's mind through verbal suggestion or through entanglement of their brains.
• The sage would know the accurate code and process.
• Mind body has different layers.
• Modern terminology: consciousness, subconscious, unconscious, collective unconscious
• Vedic terminology: jñāna(mano)maya kośa, vijñānamaya kośa, prāṇamaya kośa, ānandamaya kośa

Story of #Sunday
So all who have read B!ble know that the Sabbath was the 7th day or Saturday!
Then how did Sunday become the day of rest?
There is an interesting story about it.
We all know in #Hinduism Sunday is the day of #SUN or Soorya.
King of all planets Image
This day,fast observed is the strictest. Like Chath pooja. Salt can't even be touched.
Similarly all the countries following the most ancient tradition of #pagan worship observed Sunday as sacred.

Now, in early 4th century,Roman Emperor Constantine ( yes, u read in morning) Image
Wanted to expand his Empire. He realized that people were joining #Christianity more bcoz of the oppression by Romans
Especially the working class

So to take advantage, he cooked up a story that he had a flash vision in Sky
That all his Pagan soldiers must become Christi@ns

The importance of death Death Rituals

It is important to differentiate between life and physical life. What we see and experience on earth is physical life and we live inside a physical body. There are five manifestations of this physical life, #Samana, #Prana, Image
#Udhana, #Apana and #Vyana.
When our physical body reaches its end, or we can say when our body dies, that is, a natural death, in the next few minutes, Samana starts leaving the body. That is why the temperature of the body goes down. In the next hour Prana leaves the body,
in the next few minutes Udhana leaves the body, and then Apana leaves the body. The Vyana which is the preserving force of the Prana start exiting the body and it continues to do so up to 11 to 12 days. This is evident by observing the body, as hairs and nails still grow.

Adhik Maas – A Month to Improve Yourself

The Science behind this month:

Indian #Panchang is based on the movement of #sun and #moon, that’s why it is called Lunisolar Panchang. As per the movement of the moon, one month is equal to 29.53 days and a lunar year Image

is equal to 354.37 days. A sun year is equal to 365 days. It means there is a difference of approximately 10 days between a lunar year and sun year. In three years, this difference becomes of 30 days, hence after every 3 years, one lunar month is added to the calendar.

To be precise, this lunar month is added after 32 months, 16 days and 8 hours to keep lunar and solar calendars aligned.

What This Month Means-
This ‘extra’ or added month is called #Adhikmaas, or #PurushottamMaas. This Adhik Maas is dedicated to Shri Hari Vishnu.

Thread on Hinduphobia and intolerance towards Hindu students at @txfastate @CCISD via Item 22 on the TFA Fall 2020 Legislative Docket. Link to our letter urging both to remove the topic from the docket. 1/n
The debate topic "Curbing Hindu Nationalism" promotes hostility towards Hindu students, by presenting that their faith is 'ultra-right-wing' and hateful towards those who are not Hindus. The debate topic is framed as a derogatory description of Hinduism. 2/n
There is already widespread #Hinduphobia and lack of understanding of #Hinduism in schools. Positioning of Hinduism as intolerant via such ill-informed and factually inaccurate debates is certain to make matters worse. 3/n

Review on Growth of Scheduled Castes and Tribes in Medieval India by Dr K S Lal. [#Thread ] #History #india #scheduledtribe #scheduledcaste #caste #indic #civilization #Hindus #hinduism #SanatanDharma #medieval #bharat
This well researched book is a gem for all those who are curious to learn the actual state of the present day STs/SCs during Medieval Ages, especially in Hindu Society.
It challenges and devastates the false extreme narrative built first by colonial Western Indologists and later popularised by Marxists Historians, that Hindu upper castes used to unleash unimaginable amount of inhuman atrocities on lower castes..

A few more samples from sanat sujAtiyam on the nature of the individual self, as a continuation to this thread:

pramAdAd vA asurAh parAbhavan apramAdAd brahmabhUtAh surASca

[AsurAs failed to realize true nature of the self due to error of considering body as the self (pramAda). Devas, by careful discrimination of self & body (apramAda) attained the nature of the self, similar to Brahman]+
The above describes the episode of Indra and Virochana learning from PrajApati in the Chandogya (pratyagAtma vidya). Virochana mistook the teachings as self = body, while Indra understood the self as different from the body.+

As I said here, the sanat sujAtiyam discourses on nature of the jIvAtman. ParamAtman is described too, but only as a means to attain jIvAnubhava. A few tongue twisting shlokAs that some have tried to interpret (unsuccessfully) -…
Due to the beautiful construction of the shlokAs, I decided to have a go. First one:

na vedAnAm veditA kaScidasti vedena vedam na vidurna vedyam |+

#Hinduism #Mahabharata #SanatanaDharma #Sanatsujatiyam #Vedas
[Not any acts like seeing, speaking, hearing about jIvAtma (vedAnAm), is capable of knowing it truly. By knowledge in form of seeing differences (vedena), one can't know the nature of self that is identical in all (vedam) & the body belonging to it, so distinct from it (vedyam)]+

Exactly, its #liberals's and #maoists's agenda to associate #Hindus with #hinduism.

'ISM' is suffix connoting dogma, and way of behaving on the contrary, 'Tattva' is principle.

@bnss7cuz @thesecunew @MahuaMoitra @BanglaPokkho @GargaC

As for @BanglaPokkho owning Bangla as a language is fine, however, Indian LANGUAGE emanates from Brahami SCRIPT.
@BanglaPokkho logic will fail if he can provide a Sanskrit word for Divorce.

Sensuality was never a taboo not even in eastern part of Indian continent as far as Cambodia.
Woman objectification started when Mughal Moroders invaded India.
Such happened to Sensuality as well.

Have u noticed why the left, liberal, feminists always insult #Godesses ?
There is an obsession to objectify rather than worship.
#Thread 👇
#Hinduism like all #pagan Beliefs, respects & venerates female energy. Coz only feminine has the power to procreate & nurture. Image
2/6Hence the villifiacation started right from Adam/Eve. Somehow the Eve was dumb & Snake was evil to trap the poor Adam.
Q religion also believes that if women keep their heads uncovered they attract evil forces. From witch hunting to Niqab, the examples are endless.
Where as if u see Hinduism, Earth, country, Nature, River all are mother figures, to be worshipped
Just for eyeing someone's wife, Shumbh Nishumbh, Madu, Kaitabh to Ravan & Duryodhan were punished.
To cool down the temper of Maa Kali, Shiva himself had to lie down on her feet Image

Interesting event in Taittiriya Samhita (2.1.7):

“Devas and asuras vied with each other in respect of the Lordship (of these worlds). Vishnu saw a “Vāmana" (Dwarf Pasu, sacrificial animal), that he offered to himself as the Deity...."+

#Vedas #Hinduism #SanatanaDharma
"...By this act, he conquered the worlds. He who vies (in this manner) shall offer a dwarf to Vishnu. He will become Vishnu himself and conquer all these worlds.”

Sayana takes “Vāmana" as dwarf animal (ox) & links it to a sacrificial offering+

#Hinduism #Vedas #SanatanaDharma
Appayya Dikshita goes one step further & says this is a rite to attain “Vishnu Padavi" as it says “he becomes Vishnu.

If only it were that easy, "Sacrifice an Ox, become Lord Vishnu"😂 Reality - this isn't an animal sacrifice. As below+

Continuation of how the Pāndavās conducted themselves post their humiliation in Kaurava Sabha.

Let us look at Bhīma, having seen that Yudhiṣṭhira represents karma yoga in previous posts here:

#Hinduism #Mahabharata #SanatanaDharma #SanatanDharm
Sabha Parva describes his actions (link:…) - “I have no equal in strength of arms,” thinking so Bhīma goes stretching forth his mighty arms, proud of the strength of his arms, exhibiting them & desiring to perform deeds worthy of those arms to his enemies"+
Karna reveals Bhīma's nature in Udyoga Parva:

udgātātra punar bhīmaḥ prastotā sumahābalaḥ vinadan sa naravyāghro nāgānīkāntakṛd raṇe

[Bhīma of great strength, tiger among men destroys elephants, roars in battle, is Udgātā & Prastotā, singers of Vedic hymns.]+

--Fairly Brief Thread on the Intent of Mahābhārata --

Thought of writing on this. If we look at the names of the 18 parvas in the Mahābhārata, we can easily discern the undercurrent of bhakti yoga.+

#Hinduism #Mahabharata #SanatanaDharma #SanatanDharm #Sanatani #Hindus
Adi Parva – The beginning, or the birth of the self when it acquires a body based on karmas. Key events are the curse of Pandu (had already written about inner meanings of this) & Lākṣāgṛha incident that teaches the harm sense-objects cause to the self+

#Hinduism #Mahabharata
Sabha Parva – Experiences of embodied self in “Sabha” or Saṃsāra that is an assembly of elements. The self feels suffering now. Draupadi (the self) suffers in hall (Saṃsāra) due to Kauravas (kāma, krodha etc) when her 5 husbands (senses) forsake her.+

This section now deals with how prostitutes can attain sat-gati in their current births itself, while doing their work. Such is the compassion of Sriman Nārāyaṇa.+
Now, these women resorted to Rṣi Dālbhya, who informs them of the reason for their depraved state, tells them to execute their duties with detachment and discourses on dharma to be followed by prostitutes. He relates a story first+
