1. During the Vedic Era women had two paths to practice -
a). Brahmavadini who studied philosophy and theology for the rest of their life
b). Sadyowaha who were students till they are married. Vedic society revered women as equals with respect and modesty of values. Image
2. Brahmavadini was the title attributed to women scholars, who dedicated their lives to the pursuit of knowledge and the study of the Vedas. Some were unmarried, living as ascetics, and independent of their fathers, brothers, or male counterparts. /n

Your journey towards alien faith begins with making you disrespect your own faith. That is how #Thekeralastory begins. There are some favourite tropes which are used. I don’t care what your individual stand it, in larger cause, one must accept and work on it.
First one is - Caste. #Caste is a Portuguese concept. Hinduism has Varna. All Varna’s are said to have emerged from Brahma- the Divine. In Hinduism, intellectuals since eternity understood the divisive impact of Caste. So in earliest times, Manu marries daughter to Brahmin.
In Ramayan, Kshatriya Shriram has Nishadraj as his school mate and friend. In Mahabharat, the story is narrated by Sootputra. In Ajgar Kand of Van Parva, Dharmaraj Yudhishthir tells the Sarp, it is our action which decides your caste. #Casteism #Hinduism

Gayatri Mantra: Meaning and significance

#GayatriMantra is one of the oldest and most powerful Vedic mantras as per Hindu religious beliefs. This sacred mantra is mentioned in the Upanishads as a ritual and in the Bhagwat Gita as a divine poem.

Gayatri Mantra was first recorded in the #RigVeda and written in Sanskrit around 2500 to 3500 yrs back. It comprises 24 syllables organized inside a triplet of eight syllables. Reciting the Gayatri Mantra not only decontaminates the chanter but the listener as well

It is believed that by chanting Gayatri Mantra, you achieve success and happiness in your life. With regular chanting of this Mantra, one can firmly establish and stabilize the mind. The mantra is a declaration of appreciation, to both the nurturing Sun and the Divine.

How the myth started..

Now reading the book by @bennedose Image
This is how the #ThaparHabibClan and their more famous international counterparts take into advantage most gullible people who read their books , who do not know a word of #Samskrta , forget knowing anything from #RgVeda!

#justsaying Image
This is exactly how the #ThaparHabibClan has perpetuated a myth of "repeated mention of killing of Dasyus in the #RgVeda".

I showed in another article how dubious was that by similar means. Image

Yet one more reason to reject those anti Hindu/anti Sanatani/anti Vedic so called (trad/tradcells/pseudo trad) Pandits & guardian of Dharma, who believe women don’t have right to study Vedas 👇:-
#Vedas #RigVeda #Hinduism #Hindu #SanatanDharma #Women
Rig Veda 1.164.41 (1st Mandal, 164th Sukta, 41st Mantra) says :-

गौ॒रीर्मि॑माय सलि॒लानि॒ तक्ष॒त्येक॑पदी द्वि॒पदी॒ सा चतु॑ष्पदी।
अ॒ष्टाप॑दी॒ नव॑पदी बभू॒वुषी॑ स॒हस्रा॑क्षरा पर॒मे व्यो॑मन् ॥
Word-Meaning: -
हे स्त्री-पुरुषो ! जो (एकपदी) एक वेद का अभ्यास करनेवाली वा (द्विपदी) दो वेद जिसने अभ्यास किये वा (चतुष्पदी) चार वेदों की पढ़ानेवाली वा (अष्टापदी) चार वेद और चार उपवेदों की विद्या से युक्ता वा (नवपदी) चार वेद, चार उपवेद और व्याकरणादि शिक्षायुक्त..

A Mini-#Thread on what Rig Veda says about the roles and responsibilities of a husband and wife in a householder. #husband #wife #vedas #Hinduism #SanatanDharma #family #rigveda #hindu
Sanatan Dharma has always been a wrongful victim of being allegedly patriarchal, especially when it comes to assignment of roles and responsibilities of husband and wife in managing their households.
.. However, if we analyse the supreme Sanatani knowledge enshrined in the divine Vedas and strive to comprehend the deeper meaning of the relevant mantras, the directives from the same contrast the above mindless allegation.

-- Devī Sūkta of Rg Veda—

Vāk Ambhrāṇi is the goddess of speech. No sādhaṇa is performed without Vāk as basis. As all actions require chanting of mantra, praise of Brahman in the form of stuti etc, Vāk is the basis of all senses used in action. So, Vāk proclaims her glory+
ahaṃ rudrebhirvasubhiścarāmyahamādityairutaviśvadevaiḥ
ahaṃ mitrāvaruṇobhā bibharmyahamindrāgnīahamaśvinobhā

[I move with the Rudras, Vasus, Adityas and the Vishvadevas. I support both Mitra and Varuna, both Indra and Agni, and the two Aśvins]+

#Vedas #Hinduism
Rudras preside over senses & mind that move towards objects. Aditys preside over the 12 months & are called so as they move (adadanah). Vasus preside over fire, earth etc as in these all wealth is placed. So vāk, "moves" with the gods, ie, helps them execute their functions.+

--- Praise of Tirumala in Rg Veda ---

The sūkta beginning with “arāyi kāṇe” is considered by vedāntins historically to describe the Lord of Tirumala.+

#RigVeda #Tirumala #Hinduism #Vedas
The Veda Puruṣa, like azhwars often do, advises his mind to go dwell in Tirumala, the beauty of the surroundings and the Lord there. First rk,

arāyi kāṇe vikaṭe giriṃ gaccha sadānve śirimbiṭhasyasatvabhistebhiṣ ṭvā cātayāmasi ||

#RigVeda #Hinduism #Vedas
[Mind without wealth (intellect), whose eye is shut (not seeing Brahman)! Go to the beautiful hill, crying out (his name). We will cause you to hide from Saṃsāra, by these Tīrthās of the hill that withers all karmas.]

--- Fivefold forms of Brahman in Rg Veda ---

“janma karma ca me divyam” - One must know inner meanings of his acts & forms he assumes during avatārās. This is called “avatāra rahasyam” by ācāryās & is fhe intent of this sūkta:…

Who are these gods in these mantras? Well, these rks are not describing various gods, but various forms of the same god.+

#Hinduism #Vedas #SanatanaDharma #RigVeda #Sanatani #SanatanDharm #Hindus #Vedanta
This god takes a fivefold form – para (supreme abode), vyūha (among the devas), vibhava (among us), antaryāmin (in all beings) and arca (visible to all in temples). Of these, vibhava is further divided 3-fold and antaryāmin as 2-fold, which we will see+

-- Vamadeva's Hymn --

Beauty of śarīra-śarīri sambandha between the self and Brahman is that "I" denotes your innerself, equated to the innerself of other entities as well as directly to Brahman, enabling blissful anubhava of equating oneself to all entities+

#Hinduism #Vedas
This is demonstrated by the following pasuram of Nammazhwar:

kadal gyālam seydhenum yāne ennum kadal gyālam āvenum yāne ennum kadal gyālam koṇdenum yāne ennum kadal gyālam kīṇdenum yāne ennum (Thiruvaimozhi 5.7.1)+

-- 50 Post Thread on Battle of 10 Kings (Rg Veda) ---

“Battle of 10 Kings” has a dubious distinction of a landmark in Indology. Impressive how some have cooked up histories based on a few mantras -…. +

#Hinduism #Hindus #RigVeda #SanatanaDharma #Vedas
There is no inkling of such a battle ever taking place. Proof is the silence of the Ithihāsa and Purāṇa on this issue. So, we shall look at few mantras from Rg Veda used as a base for this “history”. Rg Veda 7.18 is the main source +

#Hinduism #Hindus #RigVeda #RigVed #Vedas
Here -…. Focus will be on rks 5,6,7,11 and 18 where the “Kings” are mentioned. 4th rk itself clearly sets the context, where it is mentioned Brahman is propitiated for curbing the senses. So, start with 5th rk below+

#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.

Ancient India was not purely religious. If You see main Hindu Scriptures like Vedas, Upnishad, and Samhita they are collection of philosophies, scientific data and facts. They worshipped nature and were experts in Science, astronomy, mathematics.
#Thread #IndicHistory
Just because the language is Sanskrit, Leftists reject it to be unscientific and religiously motivated.
In recent time ie last few hundred years, many distortion n misinterpretation has been done too and readers who don't know Sanskrit tend to believe it.
Let's dive in brief
#RigVeda: It's full of the geographical data about India. Research on Rig Veda have proven and can be further verified that Our Civilization was River based and most important one was Saraswati. We worshipped nature. eg Agni, Varun, Indra.

A Hymn from #Rigveda | An Ode to Rivers
By a handsome count of tweets ago, I quoted @odysseuslahori
"They called me Sindhu, in their language, Sanskrit. In a frenzy of joyous wonder, they sang hymns to me, to be preserved two thousand years later in writing in their Rigveda" Indus in making its way through formidable HimalayasA bridge on Indus near Chilaas
In Mandala 10 of Rigveda we meet Hymn 75, Nadi Stuti
9 couplets sing to the glory of our rivers, all of these
Tiny piddling streams ejaculating out of northern mountains, swollen to tiny oceans by monsoon floods embracing the southern water-stretch of Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean Vitasta, Jhelum at Head RasulThe calmness of Jhelum waters at Head RasulAzad Patan bridge crossing over Jhelum, entry point to Azad Kashmir
His roar is lifted up to heaven above the earth: he puts forth endless vigour with a flash of light.
Like floods of rain that fall in thunder from the cloud, so Sindhu rushes on bellowing like a bull. Asikni : Chenab at Trimmu HeadworksHead Panjnad, River Chenab

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.
