The 28th Nakshatra - Abhijit

There is also a nakshatra called #Abhijit that was part of the original #nakshatra mandala. Abhijit is 4°13'2o" long and is placed between 6°4o' and io°53'2o" #Capricorn and it was the most auspicious nakshatra during the ancient times. Image
It was such a powerful nakshatra that if an important activity began when the #Moon was in Abhijit nakshatra, it guaranteed unparalleled success. During the #Mahabharat, Shree Krishna came to know that Duryodhana was planning to start a war with five Pandav brothers at a
time when the Moon was in Abhijit. He was aware of the power of the Abhijit. The Kauravas were planning to begin Mahabharat when it was #Amavasya tithi (New Moon) and the Moon was in Abhijit nakshatra; this day would be an extremely potent one to bring a successful outcome.

~1000's of yrs ago ancient Indian cities hd mechanisms to counter FLOODS. 👇Modern cities hv none.

~Paleoanthropologists hv proven GIANTS wr real.

~GEOLOGICAL proof #Ramayan & #Mahabharat r not mythologies bt true history.
My video.👇

The most common myth abt ancient India is--that the previous civilization died long ago. NOT TRUE!!!
In my video I hv shown how there has been a continuity of Sanatan Dharm through 1000's of years. And yes with proof!

I hate u twitter, it took me 6 attempts to upload this video.
Someone posted this under the video—its true that when we see how brilliantly our ancestors planned everything, we do end up getting goosebumps. We r lucky to hv bn born Sanatani. 😊🙏 Image

Il Detachment Makes Us Hardhearted & Attachment Doesn't ll

Is it True ?

Sometimes people think “If I become detached, I will become hardhearted.!! "

However, what makes us hardhearted is not detachment, but its opposite: attachment.
When we become attached to something, we experience intense emotions in relation with that object. But those very emotions can impel us towards unbecoming, immoral and hurtful actions, especially towards those whom we see as threats to our attachment.
At the *Bhagavad-Gita's* ~ Dhritarashtra enquires: "On the battlefield of Kurukshetra, what did my people and the Pandavas do?"

*The question reveals his bias* – the Pandavas too were his people, being his nephews....(but he was not concerned for them )...

When Draupadi was granted a boon by Bhisma

During the initial days of the war, Kaurava lost a large number of its soldiers and were struggling to defeat the mighty Pandava’s.
Enraged by this, Duryodhan taunts Pitamaha Bhishma for his failure in killing the Pandava's stating that Pitamaha is partial towards the sons of Pandu and doesn't want them killed!
This infuriates Pitamaha and he vows to kill all the Pandava's the next day . ( i.e he will make planet Earth ‘Nishpandav’)

Listening to this , Shri Krishna becomes a little anxious because he knew that Pitamaha is valliant warrior who can easily kill the Pandava's .

Propaganda and myth around #Mahabharat that it is just a story ,
While this #Thread gives
#LogicalPoints For Those Who Thinks Mahabharata Is Not Real

1. It has been written in the epic from time to time that Mahabharata is an “Itihasa” which exclusively means “thus occurred”
2. It is mentioned in Aadiparva, Adhyaya 62 that the records of the Bharat-Dynasty are recorded in the Mahabharata.
Context - A number of dynasties with their long lineage of kings (more than 50 from Manu) have been presented in the work.
If it were just fiction, 4-5 kings would have sufficed to build the story on.

3.. Read the description of Kaliyuga as mentioned in Mahabharata.

Whatever Krishna said tallies with creepy, mysterious accurateness with modern life as it exists today.

#Hinduism through the evil eyes of #LeftHistorians.

First of all, there is no such religion as #Hinduism. This name was coined by Britishers.

In this Thread, I’ve tried to bust the lies of #Communist Historians to malign the Sanatana Dharma using facts and evidences.

(1/21) ImageImage
🔸Our philosophy is 5000+ years old and is about the universal truth - Sanatana Dharma that all mankind should aspire for.

It is the oldest religion in the World.

The #Sanatanis have never been a proselytising race. #PanditNehru went on record to admit this.

It has existed from Ancient times, even before the advent of proselytising religions (#Buddhism, #Christianity and #Islam).

Unfortunately, we have always been taught the #Left version of History. which has always been Delhi-centric and anti-Sanatani.

3. and body healthy. Yoga, Way of Living, Chanting of Mantras and Shlokas, etc. Everything has been given a set of procedures and a way to perform. Every Shlok and Mantra produces a different form of vibration or energy and it affects a different aspect of body and mind.

This is a beautiful story from the Mahabharat. A story of faith and surrender, of destiny. This incident happened when legions of troops from all over were being mobilized to fight one of the bloodiest battles in the history of India.
The battlefield of Kurukshetra was being prepared to facilitate movement of mammoth armies with large cavalries. Areas were marked for rival camps. Huge bundles of wood were organized to cook food for a sea of army.
Trees were being felled by elephants to clear the ground. On one such tree lived a sparrow, a mother of four young ones. As the tree was knocked down, her nest landed on the ground along with her offspring, too young to fly, miraculously unharmed.
