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.

Arjuna thought that Bhima was not doing any kind of worship.

He was proud of his external worship of Lord #Shiva.

He offered plenty of Bilva leaves. (3/15)

A tweet thread.
It is a strange phenomenon. Not the way in which the judicial and criminal investigation processes have been subverted in India to arrest and oppress victims and punish civil rights campaigners. That is a travesty of justice and a denial of civil rights, alright
It is the brazenness with which such gross acts of egregious violation of constitutional principles and protections of civil liberties are carried out. It is the utter lack of regard for the niceties of due process. It is the widespread support for it among ordinary people.
So the mockery of justice of the #BhimaKoregaon activists's trial and incarceration, the arrest and false charges against #UmarKhalid and the many others falsely accused in the #DelhiRiots police investigation are not only tolerated but actually supported by many in #India

--Small thread on "forbidden flowers for Lord Vishnu--

Every devata has flowers that he/she likes and dislikes. Difference between other gods and Vishnu is simply that the Lord is the Supreme Being, and there is in reality, no flower he dislikes or won't accept.+

Acceptance or rejection by the Lord is determined by intent. He will accept a thorn if offered in devotion, or when proper flowers are not available. He will not accept even thulasi if offered without devotion.+

Females - Indian Attire
#Indian females are one of the most beautiful women in the world. Who can deny the beauty of an Indian girl adorned in full Indian ethnic attire! Trust me when I say, in today’s world the way we dress impacts our image to a great extent. Image
Moreover, research has shown our attire affects our personality. Also, the clothes we wear affect our way of thinking, our behavior, our mood and even the way we interact with others. Traditional clothing makes you confident and radiant.

There’s a saying “When in Rome”.
In the context of clothing, it means one should dress according to the occasion. There is no harm in dressing yourself according to fashion but the mistake we make is when we blindly follow the western culture. In my opinion, traditional clothing has more to do with the

Sanatan Dharma – A religion based on science

Ancient India, the land of Vedas and Upanishads. The land of culture, traditions, purity of thoughts and a religion that is based on science. Fasting, celebrations, festivals, even our daily routine is based on science. Image
Let me point a few things that we follow that are considered religious but are based on science. Our sages entwined science into religion in such a way that a common man can follow scientific rules to stay healthy.

1-Why Is the #Tulsi Plant Considered #Sacred and so central to #Sanatana Dharma?

Tulsi has been revered in India for as long as man has been around.

In every #Hindu home a Tulsi plant holds great importance (1/25)


2-In all those old, #Traditional houses the Tulsi plant used to be grown in the centre of the house,

..on an altar-like structure called tulsi chaura. (2/25)


3-Every #Hindu #Puja ceremony creates what they call #Panchamrita

..and Tulsi leaves are an essential ingredient of panchamrita

Some people say that even when Tulsi is once used in worship, can be cleaned and reused in another puja because it purifies itself. (3/25)
