Spending 14 years in forest, sleeping on floors and eating raw fruits - this was the beautiful prince of Ayodhya, Sri Rama who left everything to fulfil the words of His father.

Sri Rama is one of the most loved deities and His mantra is also one of the most universal of all mantras in Sanatana Dharma.

The Rama mantra symbolises an unceasing, perpetual joy. While pleasure and happiness has its ups and downs, joy stays with you, even increasing with the passage of time.

Vishnu and Shiva -- are givers of creation and life as well as of destruction. Although its complex cosmology is layered, it does encourage four universal goals, or purusharthas, that shape the meanings of life: dharma, artha, kama and moksha.
Karma and Samsara-
Karma is the belief that every action has a consequence, and a person's karma strives to create a balance between these actions. Karma shapes reincarnation-the rebirth of one's soul into another physical form-as a person's actions decide the circumstances

4. white and black rats - day and night - eating away present life

5. Honey comb is Maya and material Life. He is under attack by the bees but yet is lost in his lust for honey.

Vishnu extends his hands to the human to give him moksha/ Ascension/ Rainbow body and
release him from this cycle of Misery of rebirth... (The wheel of Samara)

Markandeya was a child for whom a choice was made before he was born. His parents had to choose between having a son who would live for a hundred years but would be a fool, or a son who would be a brilliant, shining being but live only for sixteen years. Image
The parents were wise and they chose the latter, and they bore a brilliant, shining child of enormous capabilities. But as days passed and years rolled by, they were worried for their child and became very tortured as the date of his death came close.
They explained to Markandeya about the boon they had received and the choice they had made. But Markandeya was phenomenally wise and knowledgeable, and he knew the ways of life.

So, when the moment of his death came โ€“ when the god of death, Yama, came to claim his life โ€“

the game represented virtues and the #snakes indicated vices. The game was played with cowrie shells and dices. Later through time, the game underwent several modifications but the meaning is the same i.e good deeds take us to heaven and evil to a cycle of re-births. Certain
references take the game back to the 2nd century BC.

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 โ€œa wheel of flowing energyโ€ 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 spiritual meaning of Namaste is profound Particularly in Hinduism, Gods are worshiped by closing the eyes and joining the palms in reverence, which indicates the recognition of their divinity.

'While paying obeisance to God, bring the palms together. After joining the hands
one should bow and bring the head forward. While tilting the head forward, one should place the thumbs at the mid-brow region, i.e. at the point between the eyebrows and try to concentrate on the feet of the Deity. After that, instead of bringing the folded hands down immediately
they should be placed on the mid-chest region for a minute in such way that the wrists touch the chest; then only should the hands be brought down.

The fingers should not be stiff while bringing the palms together because this will lead to a decrease in Sattva component from the

Dance is present in the cosmic waves. If you look closely at our dharma, you will observe that our gods express a lot through dancing. Dancing has an aspect of creation. Modern science uses different terminologies to define the creation of the universe, saying it looks like a
dance. And, you may agree or not, but this is what our gods do, dancing.

If you look at different dance forms of India, you will observe there is not much movement on the surface, but the hands and face have expressions and mudras. However, when you see the dance and its
postures closely, you will know that there is a lot more to our classical dance forms. It has more than just movements.

Several questions have arisen in your minds. How is it possible that throwing hands in the air making some mudras can have logic? It can get hard to accept,
