Explanation of the symbolism of Vaiṣhṇava Icons
Ocean of Milk:

The Ocean of Milk (kṣīrābdhi) symbolizes the state of undifferentiated unity of Prakṛti (primordial matter) prior to emergence of the universe.
Stands for pure unadulterated state when the three Guṇas – three cosmic forces; Rajas = centrifugal force – expansion, Tamas = centripetal force – contraction & Sattva = centralizing force — exist in perfect harmony. Universe emerges when balance of three Guṇas is disturbed.

Every #Indian #Hindu #Jain

The ancient city of #Dwarka is known in #Sanatan culture to have been the great and beautiful city of Krishna. The Hindu writings say that when Krishna left the Earth to join the spiritual world, the age of Kali began and Dwarka and its inhabitants were submerged by the sea.
The tales of the submersion can also evoke a tsunami like the one that struck India in 2004.
The modern Dwarka is today one of the seven sacred towns of #Hinduism, visited each year by pilgrims worshiping #Krishna.
The search for its submerged part began in the 1930s, and the first archaeological excavation took place in 1963. Numerous ancient artefacts were found, as well as the submerged remains of the ancient Dwarka during the next excavation led by an underwater archaeologist.

@sandeep_PT Facts & our constitution clearly recognise Jain religion as an independent & distinct religion, it is not Hinduism.

We got the Minority status in 2014. History shows once upon a time our whole country & beyond Jainism was followed, we were a majority
@sandeep_PT How did such a widely followed religion become a Minority? History says, extreme religious rivalry from our own brothers first - Shaiva/Vaishnava/Srivaiṣṇava/Veer Shaiva/Lingayat ousted Jains & Buddhists. Jains wr defeated in debates,killed,mass converted,temples burnt etc
@sandeep_PT A peep into one of the major incidents of Impalement of Jains that's being debunked by you-know-who, however till today they celebrate their victory over Samanars, the Jains -

The "Integrated country strategy" with #SriLanka will likely be our template for #BharatVarsh as a union of #Indic civilization.
Interesting to note that instead of imposing ourselves we've let the #SriLanka govt outline the details of the integration process on their terms.
A detailed description of what they're looking at below . In essence seems to be much like a federation of union of states .Better for the people of both nations .
Russia went straight to Dand .
We try to stay between Saam & Daam use Bhedh if necessary as a measure of Dand .

Bhagwan Surya has a great significance in Sanatan Dharma. He is considered one of the most significant gods with exceptional capabilities and divine powers. Also, he is the principal source of light on earth and is a supporter of life. Apart from #Sanatan dharma Surya dev is also
preached around the world for his gifts to the humankind. There are many advantages of offering water to Lord Surya and various other aspects of worshipping him, with the benefits being scientifically proven. Offering Water to the sun during the early morning promotes the
absorption of Vitamin D in our body that keeps us healthy. When we offer water to the sun with a copper vessel, the lights pass through the water and splits into seven rays of the sun (also known as Seven horses of Surya Bhagwan) and are absorbed by our body and balances the

Sanskrit is not just an ordinary human language but consists of sounds and vibrations of the cosmic mantras to govern every aspect of the universe. Sanskrit is said to be the language of vedas and yoga that facilitates the awakening of higher awareness.
The language was spoken Sanskrit Alphabet

We live in a world where walking barefoot is avoided. The modern world believes that walking barefoot is not appropriate, but our ancestors were in favour of walking barefoot. Do you know the reason behind it?
Going barefoot also signifies respect for the earth upon which people
walk. The foot is the body part that touches the earth – the sacred mother of all. The earth is imbued with generative powers and the foot is thought of as the conduit through which the vital energy of the earth travels through humans unto the cosmos.
The fact that ‘We are electrical beings’ was long understood by our ancestors. Hence the traditional lifestyle hinged around connecting with the earth by either walking barefoot within the house, sleeping on ground, eating while sitting on ground and even kids playing barefoot

You must have read some books or have heard from many yogis about Chakras. But, do you know what chakras are? How do they work? In the Sanskrit language, chakra means wheel. Here, the spiritual meaning of chakra is “a wheel of flowing energy” in the body. We have 114 chakras in
total in the human body, and they work as the connection or junction of the Nadis. The Nadis are the passage of prana or energy in the body.

Out of the 114 Chakras, two of them are outside the physical body. In reality, we can only work on 108 chakras from the remaining
112 Chakras. However, we only need 21 chakras to be active in our body to live a full-fledged life. Due to the three dimensions of energy, Pingala, Ida, and Sushumna, these 21 Chakras form 7 sets, each of them with three functioning Chakras that work as one.

--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:……

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+

Sanatan Dharma and our ancient hindu texts are an epitome of knowledge. We shall not be sharing facts today but will rather do scientific analysis. This will show progressive and highly advance nature of society and our Sanatan Dharma.(1/18) Image
There will not be any chronology but basic facts from history and their scientific analysis.
Before starting we will remember the fact that anything which is not seen cannot be imagined.(2/18)
Lets take for an example the space, less than 0.1% of the population has been to space but most of us can easily imagine how it looks like. Then you may ask we have not seen the space how can we imagine it as per the premise.(3/18)

Palaghar incident where mob lynched 2 Sadhus r very disturbing. This horrific incident teaches us a lesson also
This hasn’t happened for d 1st time but we can stop this to happen again. What motivates someone attack,kill saffron clad sadhus,who hv denounced everything? 1/n Image
Saffron represents d purest, most sensitive, considerate humanitarian tradition/Vichar almost close to Godliness.

Even the slightest thought of any disrespect, dishonour should be violence of the highest order.

Then why these barbaric killings?2/n
We will outrage for few days and then will forget. But shouldn’t we have some sense of responsibilities towards saffron,sadhus & Akhadas?

Why do people disrespect saffron/sadhus/Akhads? Disrespect comes out of ignorance also. We must ask ourselves some of these questions 3/n

Orthodoxy made #Hindu Samaj non-inclusive and created deep faultlines for others to exploit. For orthodoxy, the 'mlechchh' is as much a non-Hindu as a Scheduled Caste person. #Orthodoxy never strengthens society or faith. Reject orthodoxy like Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar did. 1/n
Laughable that you can't accept food delivered by a non-Hindu because it is #Shravan. Does the food come certified that it has been cooked and packed by Hindus? A true #orthodox would cook his food, wash his utensils, carry his water. You are not even true to orthodoxy. 2/n
History tells us orthodoxy has inflicted incalculable harm to #Hinduism and #Hindu Samaj. Orthodoxy defended sati, child marriage, putrid casteism, purdah. #Orthodoxy opposed Hindu Code, women's education, equal rights, temple entry. Examples abound. 3/n
