Hinduism or Hindutva as we know today is a term given to Sanatan 'Eternal' philosophy (Vedic) the only known, oldest, surviving religion or faith (pick as may please u) to date

@MJKSaddozai let me know if you find evidence contrary in this #Thread

The estimation of vedic (one who follows Vedas) philosophy evolution is around ~52kya with known astronomical records. I know vedas will render all the history and science books OLD as its verses are decoded and solved scientifically

--Thread on Agni Pariksha and Banishment of Sita --

Pt 1 of this discussion here – threadreaderapp.com/thread/1290020…
Explained the killing of Vāli and Sambūka. Now, let us look at agni pariksha and banishment of Sīta.+

#Hinduism #Ramayana #BhumiPujan #AyodhyaRamMandir
#Ayodhya #Hindus
The 2 incidents truly encapsulate the glory of the divine couple. If you fully understand these incidents, you will be left wondering who is indeed more glorious, Rāma or Sīta!+

#RamMandirBhumiPujan #Hinduism #Ramayana #Hindus
Start with Sita’s banishment first. No need to quote ślokās. The literal act is justified by the fact that Sīta is mentioned to be Mahālakṣmi and Rāma to be Viśṇu. In reality she is always on his chest, inseparable and hence it is a līla+

--The Tryambaka Offerings, Pt 3 (Final) --

In past 2 threads, I covered the Tryambaka Ishti of Sakamedha, explaining exactly what “sister of Rudra” meant, and the Mṛtasanjīvanī mantra here. Links to previous threads: threadreaderapp.com/thread/1288228…

#Vedas
Naturally, Qs may arise. Mṛtasanjīvanī mantra is dedicated to Shiva by some scholars. How can one claim it denotes the mind? Ans - If you read previous threads, it is clear that context of tryambakaṃ yajāmahe… is meditation on the mind+

#Hinduism #Vedic #Sanatani #Hindus
A mantra is identified as belonging to a devata if it does not change in other occurences. As eg, rudra gāyatri has “tanno rudraḥ pracodayāt” that remains unchanged while occuring elsewhere with minor changes in preceding words – so, it denotes rudra devata only+

--The Tryambaka Offerings, Pt 2--

In Part 1, (Link:threadreaderapp.com/thread/1288228…), we clarified “Rudra” signified mind, and “Ambikā” experience of Brahman. In this thread, let's finish interpreting mantras of the Tryambaka rite that come after this+
#Hinduism #Vedic #Sanatani #Vedic
áva rudrámad īmahy áva deváṃ tryàmbakam

We have satisfied mind that bestows good (rudram), that shines out auspicious qualities of Brahman (devam), perceiver of 3 abodes – place, object & instrument for brahmānubhava (tryàmbakam)+

-- Thread on the Tryambaka Offerings in the Veda --

Tryambaka Ishti is an ancillary rite of Sakamedha Yajna, 1 of the 4 Yajnas comprising Chaturmasya. Housed in Vājasaneyi samhita of Yajur Veda, it contains “tryambakaṃ yajāmahe…” mantra.+

#Vedas #Hinduism #Hindus #Sanatani
However, even good scholars have not been able to decipher the mantra in this section, “rudra bʰāgáḥ sahá svásrā́mbikayā” – which declares Ambikā as sister of Rudra. Many queries about this are on the internet (eg Hinduism Stack Exchange) .+

#Hinduism #Vedic #Sanatani #Hindus
I am giving the interpretation, which those with dispassionate minds can appreciate. To understand why Ambikā is mentioned as a sister of Rudra, one must accept that parts of Veda talk in metaphors and common terms denote many things.+

When God transferred knowledge to Hindus, there were no controversies about Cosmos, Universe or Solar System or any other theories.
Not only Vedas and Upanishads....even the Hanuman Chalisa couplet gives you a distance between Earth and Sun...#Hindus #SanatanaDharma

Amazing!
Hanuman, as a child, assumed the Sun to be a ripe mango & jumped to catch it. Tulasidasa recounts the incident in his Hanuman Chalisa as follows:
yuga-sahasra-yojana para bhanu
leelyo tahi madhura phala janu
Considering the Sun to b a sweet fruit, Hanuman jumped 2 swallow it.
1/n
Here the distance he travelled is mentioned as yuga-sahasra-yojana. Let us try to decipher this.
What is a yuga? According to Bhagavad-gita, one day of Brahma is called kalpa and is equal to 1000 yugas and this is followed by a similar duration of night.

After the #AgrimaJoshua incident, most of my #NorthIndian friends (some are left-leaning) mocked me for criticising her & asked me what’s the big deal in addressing him as ‘Shivaji’.

Around 230 BCE, #Maharashtra came under the rule of the #Satvahana dynasty for 400 years.

It was also ruled by the Western Satraps, the #Guptas, Gurjaras-Pratiharas, Vatakas, Kadambas, Chalukyas, #Rashtrakutas and the Western #Chalukyas before finally, the #Yadava Rule.

(2/14)
In short, #Maharashtra was ruled by #Hindu Kings.

Unfortunately, in the early 14th century, the Yadava Dynasty was overthrown by the Islamic Invader #AlauddinKhilji, who was then, the Sultan of #Delhi. This marked the beginning of #Islamic Rule in Maharashtra.

#SUFISM A DRUG?

After destroying Persia, Mesopotamia and Egypt, in seventh century Arabs encountered a new kind of kafir resistance.

Hindus like Nagabhatta, Bappa Rawal, Takshak, who would neither convert nor die, instead they k*ll when asked to convert.
But they also have no fixed ritual of worship, and worship Gods in all forms, mostly animals , and love to sing and dance when worshiping God.

They also very highly revere their ancestors and worship them.

So the believers quickly changed the tactic and #Sufis were born
Sufis who apparently worship graves, and sing and dance while doing so.

All three are explicitly banned in Islam, and even today are banned as soon as Muslims seize political power in a country (Please find out how Taliban ruled Afghanistan in 1990s)

Many #Hindus have been asking why we don't speak up for our rights or assert ourselves. As a psychiatrist, I will say that the training starts right from childhood, in the family. Encourage your children to question authority (including you). Don't dominate and ...
control your children's lives. Let them be vocal & fully who they are in the family unit. This sets the stage for them to be vocal & assertive later on in the real world. Also, stop giving unconditional respect to elders who haven't demonstrated that they deserve it. Just because
someone is older than you, doesn't mean they know any better. Encourage and foster independent thinking IN THE HOME.

What is shocking is Prithviraj Sukumaran, agreeing to play the role of Chief Instigator of the massacre!
This Actor who takes pride in being well read, disappoints with his ignorance of this brutality!
