“एक लक्षात घेतले पाहिजे की, शिवाजी महाराजांनी राज्याभिषेक केला, तो हिंदू धर्मशास्त्राप्रमाणे केला आणि तो तसा करणे आवश्‍यक होते. याचा अर्थ शिवाजी महाराजांचे राज्य फक्त हिंदूंकरिता निर्माण झाले असे नाही. शिवरायांचे राज्य हे भूमिपुत्रांचे राज्य होते.
#ShivrajyabhishekDin #Shivray
आणि म्हणून हिंदू धर्मशास्त्रापासून पूर्णपणे फारकत न घेता शास्त्र व परंपरा सांभाळून महाराजांनी महाराष्ट्रातल्याच नव्हे, तर सर्व देशातल्या भूमिपुत्रांना आश्‍वस्त केले. या देशात आता भूमिपुत्रांचे राज्य निर्माण झाले आहे.”

#ShivajiMaharaj
सांस्कृतिक संघर्ष उभा राहवा म्हणून काहीजण त्यांच्या पद्धतिने/सोयाने मुद्दे मांडतात परंतु ते जनसामन्यांना पटत नाही कारण आता लोक तेवढे चिकित्सक नक्कीच झाले आहेत आणि त्यात डॉ. जयसिंगराव पवार सरांसारखे ज्येष्ठ इतिहास संशोधक असल्यामुळे आपल्या सर्वांपुढे खरा इतिहास समोर येतो.

Swami-ji in a sitting at a disciple’s home was reciting Kaviraj Bhushan’s famous composition with fervour:

“Just like agni destroys the forest trees, and
The leopard hunts deer
2/n

As a Lion kills an elephant, and
The Sun destroys Darkness
As Krṣñna slayed the evil Kaṁsa
So does the lion Śivaji destroy the mlećchas”

Najund Rao (famous doctor of Chennai) who had limited knowledge on Maharaj Shivaji was surprised and expressed it to Swami-ji.

Did you know?

Shahu Sambhaji Raje Bhosale (or Shahuji) (1682–1749 CE) was the 5th Chatrapati of the Maratha Empire created by his grandfather, #ChhatrapatiShivajiMaharaj

Surprising little is known about this Great Chatrapathi who ruled for a long 42 years and...
...under his rule the Maratha Empire spread North, East and South.

Shahu was the son of Chatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj and his queen,Yesubai.After the torture and barbaric execution of his father at the hands of the Mughals,Shahu and his mother were taken away as prisoners by them.
Shahu was therefore raised in Mughal captivity. He was released and fought a civil war with his Aunt Queen Tarabai to establish his Kingdom in Satara.

Shahu was a excellent judge of character and a benevolent king.

ശിവജി ജയന്തി

1627 ഫെബ്രുവരി 19 ന് മഹാരാഷ്‌ട്രയിലെ ശിവനേരികോട്ടയിൽ ഷഹാജി ഭോസ്ലേയുടേയും ജിജാബായിയുടെയും ഇളയമകനായാണ് ശിവാജി ജനിച്ചത്. മാതാവിൽ നിന്ന് ഇതിഹാസ-പുരാണകഥകൾ കേട്ടുവളർന്ന അദ്ദേഹം ഒരു തികഞ്ഞ യോദ്ധാവും, രാഷ്‌ട്രതന്ത്രജ്ഞനുമായാണ് വളർന്നത്. -1-
ആയോധനകല, കുതിരസവാരി, തുടങ്ങിയ പ്രായോഗിക വിദ്യാഭ്യാസത്തോടൊപ്പം ഹൈന്ദവ ഗ്രന്ഥങ്ങളിലും അദ്ദേഹം പ്രാഗത്ഭ്യം നേടിയിരുന്നു.

ദാദാജികൊണ്ടദേവ് എന്ന ഗുരുനാഥന്റെ കീഴിൽ നിന്നും ശിക്ഷണം നേടിയ അദ്ദേഹം കറ തീർന്ന സ്വഭാവ ശുദ്ധിയുടേയും ദേശീയ പ്രതിബദ്ധതയുടേയും മൂർത്ത രൂപമായി മാറി.സാധാരണക്കാരിലൂടെ,കൃഷിക്കാരിലൂടെ,തൊഴിലാളികളിലൂടെ നേടിയെടുത്ത ഹിന്ദു സാമ്രാജ്യം അദ്ദേഹം ധര്മ്മത്തിന്റെ അടിത്തറയിലാണ് പടുത്തുയർത്തിയത്. -3-

*Chhatrapati Shivaji*-

Never learnt much about Shivaji in history in School. Amazed at what many think of him: #ShivajiMaharaj
*"From Kabul to Kandahar my Taimur family created the Mogul Sultanate. Iraq, Iran, Turkistan and in many more countries my army defeated ferocious warriors.
But in India Shivaji put brakes on us. I spent my maximum energy on Shivaji but could not bring him to his knees.*

Aindryābhiṣek, aka Mahābhiṣek, is done for starting a new line of Indra.

Bharata, son of Duṣyanta, himself did Aindryābhiṣek. Its procedure is given in Aitareya Brahmana (part of Rigved) ImageImageImage
3.
Previous coronations in Deccan were a mix of Vedic & Puranic rites, whereas Shivaji Maharaj intended for a purely Vedic one (Aindryābhiṣek), which hadn't been done for previous several centuries.

A #thread on busting some myths around the coronation of Shivaji Maharaj.

Coronation of Shivaji Maharaj was one of the revolutionary event of the 17th century India. Amidst all the Sultanates & Mughal Empire, a Hindu warrior crowns himself as a King!
#ShivajiMaharaj #Hindutva
2.
However, there are some myths that need to be busted. Historian Jadunath Sarkar has developed some myths about Coronation & Kshatriya Hood of Shivaji Maharaj.

He called Bhosales as Śudras & mere tillers of soil. Jadunath also says that they were "popularly known" as such.
3.
This is a ridiculous thing to claim, without any shred of evidence.

This thread will provide the evidence, showing that many people contemporary of Shivaji Maharaj knew, that he *was* a born Kshatriya.

माहिती नाही कोणी लिहिले, माझ्याकडे आले म्हणून शेअर करावेसे वाटले. अनेक शिवभक्तांना ही माहिती वाचून ज्ञानात भर पडेल.

किल्ला म्हणजे काय..?
किल्ला म्हणजे काय ?
त्याचे प्रकार किती ?
महाराष्ट्रासह देशात असे किती किल्ले आहेत ?
कुठे आहेत ?
तिथे पोचायचे कसे ?
ते किल्ले पहायचे कसे ?
त्यांचे ऐतिहासिक महत्त्व काय ?
त्यांची आजची परिस्थिती कशी आहे ?
असे अनेक प्रश्न आपल्यासमोर येतात.
#किल्ला_म्हणजे_काय? : महाराष्ट्राच्या पश्चिम भागात सह्याद्री पर्वत आहेत. आणि याच परिसरात आपल्याला सर्वाधिक किल्ले पहायला मिळतात. डोंगर, कडे कपारीमध्ये किल्ला बांधण्याचा मुख्य उद्देश काय असावा, असा प्रश्न देखील आपल्या समोर येतो. परंतु जिथे राहून शत्रूच्या हालचालींवर नजर ठेवता येईल

After the #AgrimaJoshua incident, most of my #NorthIndian friends (some are left-leaning) mocked me for criticising her & asked me what’s the big deal in addressing him as ‘Shivaji’.

This #Thread is for all of them who don’t know much about #ChhatrapatiShivajiMaharaj.

Around 230 BCE, #Maharashtra came under the rule of the #Satvahana dynasty for 400 years.

It was also ruled by the Western Satraps, the #Guptas, Gurjaras-Pratiharas, Vatakas, Kadambas, Chalukyas, #Rashtrakutas and the Western #Chalukyas before finally, the #Yadava Rule.

(2/14)
In short, #Maharashtra was ruled by #Hindu Kings.

Unfortunately, in the early 14th century, the Yadava Dynasty was overthrown by the Islamic Invader #AlauddinKhilji, who was then, the Sultan of #Delhi. This marked the beginning of #Islamic Rule in Maharashtra.

अपेक्षे प्रमाणे वाद वाढला आणि प्रसिद्धी मिळाल्यावर अग्रीमा जोशुआने माफी मागितली आहे.
अर्थात छत्रपती शिवरायांबद्दल आक्षेपार्ह भाषा किंवा विधान करणारी ही एकच व्यक्ती नाही. साधारण वर्षे दीडवर्ष पूर्वी कुणीतरी सौरव घोषने हे केलंच होतं. (१/९)

#अग्रिमा_जोशुआ #शिवाजीमहाराज
आणि मी निर्लज्ज पणे हे सांगतोय की हे भविष्यात सुद्धा होणारच आहे.
का? कारण असं काही विधान केलं की एक समुदाय आपल्यावर चिडणार आणि अत्यंत जहाल टीका होणार.
परिणाम असा की थोडा सहिष्णू गट मग या पातळीवरची टीका चुकीची आहे अशी सहानुभूतीची भूमिका घेणार. (२/९)

#AgrimaJoshua #ShivajiMaharaj
त्यातून जर स्त्री असेल तर मग तिच्यावर होणारी टीका ही तिच्या इंद्रियांशी जोडली जाणार आणि मग गुन्हा केलेली व्यक्तीच त्याचा उलट फायदा घेणार.
दुसरं असं की माफी मागितल्या नंतर हे सगळे गुन्हे लख्ख धुऊन निघतात. म्हणजे प्रसिद्धी मिळाली, सहानुभूती मिळाली आणि शिवाय गुन्हा माफ.. (३/९)

*महाराजांबद्द्ल दोन शब्द*

■कुठल्याही कोंबड्या बकऱ्याचा बळी न देता स्वतःचा करंगळी कापून रक्ताचा अभिषेक घालणारा एकमेव राजा.

■शिवाजी महाराजांच्या गडाला कुठल्याही देवाचे नाव नाही गणपतीचे सुद्धा नाही.......

#राजे_शिवछत्रपती
शिवराय कुठेही लिंबू मिरच्या बांधत बसले नाहीत, की देव देवरशी करत बसले नाहीत.

■ज्या मनुस्मृतीने समुद्र ओलांडू नये असे बंधन घातले होते त्यांच्याविरूद्ध शिवाजी महाराजांनी जाऊन समुद्रात आरमार उभारले............

■अमावस्या अशुभ मानली जाते. काही लोकांच्या सांगण्यावरून आपण कुठलेही काम अमावस्येला सुरू करत नाही, पण महाराजांच्या लढाया या अमावस्येच्या राञी व्हायच्या कारण अंधाराचा फायदा घेऊन ते बहूतेक मोहिमा अमावस्येला घेत गनिमी कावा पद्धतीने लढाया करायचे व जिंकायचे.

Many a times I hear statements like “#Shivaji has nothing to do with Mumbai”... so is he really from a far away place? @mumbaiheritage #ShivajiMaharaj #ShivJayanti 1/n
#BelieveItOrNot #Shivneri Fort, his birthplace is less than 100 kms from #Mumbai as the crow flies! 2/n
Raigad, his capital and the site of his cremation, is also less than 100kms from #Mumbai!

Had Tarabai not taken charge, Aurangzeb would have snuffed out Maratha rule & the history of India would have been very different

Rani Tarabai, the daughter-in-law of #shivajimaharaj & an indomitable & shrewd queen

One of the grittiest characters in history
@Panipat_1761

Rani Tarabai was also called the ‘rainha dos Marathas’ or the ‘Queen of the Marathas’ by the Portuguese

She was the daughter of Hambir Rao Mohite, Shivaji’s commander-in-chief, and she was married to Shivaji’s younger son Rajaram at the age of eight

After Shivaji’s death, his first son Sambhaji took over the throne. As he was killed,

Rajaram was brought into power. He died an untimely death, leaving behind an heir, Shivaji II, who was only four years old at the time

In his name, Tarabai at the age 25 became the ruler

Since today is the day of #ShivajiMaharaj's coronation and becoming #ChhatrapatiShivajiMaharaj, tempted to do a thread on his Madras/Chennai connection.
So, as we know #ShivajiMaharaj's coronation was held in a glorious ceremony on 6 June 1674. This was important as without the ceremony, Shivaji did not hold any "kingly" title.
After his coronation, Shivaji became #ChhatrapatiShivajiMaharaj. He also was given the titles of Shakakarta (Creator of an era) and Haindhava Dharmoddhaaraka (Protector of the Hindu Dharma).
