Why is #Kashi so significant to Hindus? Part-3 #Thread

"A Basic Description of the #Kashi Tirtha Yatra"

Even after performing crores of Yajnas one cannot acquire the opulence which one can get at every step while walking in the lanes of Kashi. (Kashi Khanda)
Tirtha "तीर्थ" is a Sanskrit word that means "crossing place, ford", and refers to any place, text or person that is scared. It particularly refers to pilgrimage sites and scared places.
Tirtha originally referred to a fordable river, which was chosen solely for its utility.
Hindus build "Axis Mundi," temporary or permanent representations of a substantial part or the entire cosmos, to maintain a harmonious relationship throughout the universe.

Why is #Kashi so significant to Hindus? Part -1 #Thread

Varanasi does not receive much attention in Vedic literature, but its glory is strongly eulogized in puranic literature and treatises.
Kashi (The "Luminous"), Avimukta (The "Never-Forsaken" of Shiva, the patron deity), Anandavana (The "Forest of Bliss"), and Rudravasa (The "Dwelling site of Shiva") have all been used to describe the concept of image.

“The mark of swastika is the position of Sapta-Rishis in the orbit round the Pole Star (Dhruv Tara) : In addition to all these”

“arguments, if seen realistically, the swastika mark is related to
astronomy. Swastika is the basic mark in the circular movement of Sapta-Rishi Mandal going round the Pole Star. Before starting any auspicious work, we utter swasti words (Swastivachan).

What is the scientific basis of maintaining a ‘shikha’ (a tuft of hair on head)?

The point of ‘shikha’ on head has brahma-randhra (main brain) (10th door). A man dies instantly if this point is agitated. The Vedic science directs that one should keep a shikha
of the shape of a cow’s hoof for the safety of the tenth door. It is required that the”

“shikha should be knotted (just as the door has to be shut), so that the spiritual energies gained through religious practices are not wasted. Shikha acts as an antenna to keep in touch with
God (Parabrahma Parmatma). Electrical studies have a principle that pointed objects pierce through electrical energy. So knotting is a process based on scientific principles.”

Avadhūta-Gītā: The 24 Gurus

On hearing this Question, Dattātreya-jī was Pleased.
He asked.
श्रीब्राह्मण उवाच:

सन्ति मे गुरवो राजन् बहवो बुद्ध्युपाश्रिता:।
यतो बुद्धिमुपादाय मुक्तोऽटामीह तान् श‍ृणु॥


"O King, I had many Gurus & I learned from all of them according to my Understanding”

He did Not egoistically say, “I learned it all.”
He said, “They are all my Gurus.
They taught me everything.”

Actually, the Truth was that he had kept learning from all of them.
Only one who keeps learning from his experiences is Truly intelligent.

We all want our bank balances to increase, do we Not?
Do you know that there is also a bank of Knowledge?
It is a bank where our balance always keeps Increasing.

Pranay Kumar, a journalist with the Organiser magazine visited a few cities like New Jalpaiguri, Siliguri, Islampur, Malda Town, Murshidabad etc., villages and towns situated adjacent to them, where he noticed a terrible imbalance in the demographics in these villages.
As a result, local Hindus migrate to other cities or safer locations, to escape from the organised and sponsored violence. As a result, Hindu migrants are selling their homes, farms, businesses, and other assets.
Following their escape, some Muslims share their land, take gardens, and care for their homes with great care and skill. They then obtain ownership rights to those lands at rock-bottom prices, have them registered in their names by demonstrating a fear of losing possession of the

Bhagavān Śrī Kṛṣṇa said :

'Therefore at all times, constantly remember Me & Fight.
With the Mind & Intellect absorbed in Me,
You shall doubtless come to Me.'

सर्वेषु कालेषु, at all times;
मामनुस्मर, think of me;

I am the Infinite One,
I am that Akṣara Puruṣa, that Imperishable Reality hidden within You.

A little digression is Worthwhile here.

before even embarking on the Spiritual path Upward.

In the same #Mahābhārata ., there is another context occurring very much earlier in the Chronology of events,
Which lists for Us the 6 most Fundamental Evils one should Avoid.

Did you know, Chanting the name of Shri Ram just 3 times is equivalent to chanting the 1000 names of Bhagwan Vishnu.

श्री राम राम रामेति, रमे रामे मनोरमे ।
सहस्रनाम तत्तुल्यं, रामनाम वरानने ॥

This Shloka is recited at the end of the Vishnu Sahasranama, and is said to have been
Told to Mata Parvati by Bhagwan Shiva. Bhagwan Shiva says that chanting the name of Shri Ram just three times is equivalent to reciting the thousand names of Bhagwan Vishnu. This Shloka has a real meaning in itself, both in its effect and literally. In the katapayadi system the
letters Ra and Ma holds the value of 2 & 5 respectively. The multiplier effect of chanting the name of bhagwan rama thrice is equivalent to 1000 numerically.

Our Dharma believes that a person should follow sixteen sanskaras (sacraments or rituals) in its entire life to mark different stages of a human life cycle. Following these rituals lead to a passage of possessing Ashram (stage of life). Sanskara acts as a turning point,
celebrated like an auspicious occasion. Practicing these sanskaras have turned out to bring great personality with effectiveness. The 16 Sanskars mentioned in our Vedic Dharma have their significance mention below:

1) Garbhadhana (Conception)
2) Pumsavana (Fetus Protection)
3) Simantonnayana (Fulfilling Mother’s Wishes)
4) Jatakarma (Birth Ritual)
5)Namkarana (Name Giving)
6) Nishkramana (Taking Child Outdoors)
7) Annaprashan (giving solid food)
8) Chudakarna or Mundan (Hair Cutting)
9) Karnvedh (ear piercing)

This is power of #SanatanaDharma

While covering the Kumbh Mela, a BBC Team saw about 400 Sadhus offering their body to Agni Devata before Kumbh Snan. They took a Video of the occasion.
The BBC camera team had to go far away from the flames due to the intense heat generated from burning wood. They were stunned to note that nothing happened to the Sadhus lying on the fire wood. They also tested their clothes to identify for the presence of firefighting chemicals,
but failed to find any. The Sadhus were fully engrossed chanting Mantras. These Sadhus are called Siddha Sadhus. The BBC team later telecast this on their channels.🔥

Fragments of History: (Brāhamnism in MATHURA)

In the Early Historical period, Mathurā was an important centre also of Brāhmanical worship. Vedic sacrifices (Sattras) were performed by the Brāhmanas. According to the Mahābhārata, the Śūrsenas performed yajnas. Vaiśnavism was-

-Images of at least 18 Brāhmanical deities have been recovered from Mathurā. They are: Vishnu (from Palikhera), Balarāma, Kāmadeva with Rati (from Yamunabad, Mathurā), Durga, Gajalakshmi (from Palikhera), a goddess (probably Pārvati) (from Palikhera), Mātrkās (divine mother),-
