In the late 90s as a grad student I became interested in the utility of #analytic_philosophy as a language and method of presentation and looked to how other traditions used it - a thread on #Indian_philosophy 1/
I began reading the work of Bimal Krishna Matilal (1935-1991), who had studied traditional logic and mastered it as a Tarkatirtha at Sanskrit College in Calcutta by the early 1960s 2/
Another major figure in modern Indian philosophy JN Mohanty has this highly useful reminiscence of that time and Matilal’s approach sjsu.edu/people/anand.v… 2a/
Vedic Math and its application

#Hinduism #Vedanta #Hindu #vedic
Recently I have been reading this book called Vedic Mathematics or sixteen simple mathematical formulae from the Vedas by late Jagadguru Sarikaracarya
Sri Bharati Krsna Tlrtha Maharaja ji
and learned some simple mathematical techniques to simplify calculations. I want to share this knowledge so here I am showing you the process of multiplication.
The Sutra: reads : (Nikhilam Navatascaramam Dasatah) which, literally translated, means;
“all from 9 and the last from 10”!

Suppose we have to multiply 9 by 7.
(i) We should take, as Base for our calculations, that power of 10 which is nearest to the numbers to be multiplied

[OPENING VEDANTA PLANT IN TAMIL NADU]

Justice DY Chandrachud led bench of #SupremeCourt to consider an interim application from @VedantaLimited seeking to reopen the Tuticorin plant solely for manufacturing Oxygen & supplying it free of cost.
#OxygenEmergency
#COVID19
Tamil Nadu government has strongly objected to any such reopening since it could pose a law and order situation.
#Vedanta on the other hand has informed Supreme Court that Tamil Nadu lacks both financial and technical capability to operate the oxygen plant.

The plant has been closed in violation of environmental laws.

#SupremeCourt hearing #Vedanta plea to reopen tuticorin Sterlite plant

Dr AM Singhvi for Vedanta- wastage of national resource can be stopped by allowing short 3 month run of the plant. I'm not arguing on merits
There is a preconceived decision to not allow the plant to run
Justice Nariman- you've had this plea for short runs for 2 years.

@DrAMSinghvi- the short run would allow us to identify any issues still remaining. The plant started in 1997. Provides direct employment to 4000 people, indirect employment to about 20,000.
Singhvi: Trickle down dependants are more than 2 lakh. Supplying 36% of the country's copper needs. Now India is becoming dependant on Copper imports.

Do you believe #markets are #cyclical in nature?
Do you think #history #rhymes, if not #repeats?
Do you agree #greed and #fear are two main forces in the market?
If answer of above Q's is yes then following tweets will solidify ur view if its a no then they will change ur view.
Above is a monthly chart of #Sensex. It goes through an alternating #greedandfear cycle of 8 years. Sensex moves up in greed phase and consolidates in fear phase. It was up 469% in greed phase of 1992. was up only 20% from 1992 to 2000. From 2000 to 2008 it was up 271%.
In fear phase of 2008 to 2016 it was up only 48%. #Sensex has entered greed phase in 2016 and will stay there till 2024. So far its up more than 50%. But the story doesnt end there. The sectors which move up during these phases also go through a cycle.
--- 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: sacred-texts.com/hin/rigveda/rv…

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+

#Hinduism #Vedas

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:

[I created this world, I entered it, by pervading them, I became the sentient and insentient entities, I then protect them. I uplifted the Earth as Varāha from the waters, and I placed the worlds all in my stomach and protected them at the time of deluge.]+

Interesting event in Taittiriya Samhita (2.1.7):

“Devas and asuras vied with each other in respect of the Lordship (of these worlds). Vishnu saw a “Vāmana" (Dwarf Pasu, sacrificial animal), that he offered to himself as the Deity...."+

"...By this act, he conquered the worlds. He who vies (in this manner) shall offer a dwarf to Vishnu. He will become Vishnu himself and conquer all these worlds.”

Sayana takes “Vāmana" as dwarf animal (ox) & links it to a sacrificial offering+

Appayya Dikshita goes one step further & says this is a rite to attain “Vishnu Padavi" as it says “he becomes Vishnu.

If only it were that easy, "Sacrifice an Ox, become Lord Vishnu"😂 Reality - this isn't an animal sacrifice. As below+

Continuation of how the Pāndavās conducted themselves post their humiliation in Kaurava Sabha.

Let us look at Bhīma, having seen that Yudhiṣṭhira represents karma yoga in previous posts here:

Sabha Parva describes his actions (link: sacred-texts.com/hin/m02/m02079…) - “I have no equal in strength of arms,” thinking so Bhīma goes stretching forth his mighty arms, proud of the strength of his arms, exhibiting them & desiring to perform deeds worthy of those arms to his enemies"+
Karna reveals Bhīma's nature in Udyoga Parva:

udgātātra punar bhīmaḥ prastotā sumahābalaḥ vinadan sa naravyāghro nāgānīkāntakṛd raṇe

[Bhīma of great strength, tiger among men destroys elephants, roars in battle, is Udgātā & Prastotā, singers of Vedic hymns.]+

--- Thread on Veśya Dharma in Matsya Purāṇa – Pt 2---

This section now deals with how prostitutes can attain sat-gati in their current births itself, while doing their work. Such is the compassion of Sriman Nārāyaṇa.+
Now, these women resorted to Rṣi Dālbhya, who informs them of the reason for their depraved state, tells them to execute their duties with detachment and discourses on dharma to be followed by prostitutes. He relates a story first+

Long ago, the devas won against the asurās and made the latter’s wives their concubines. Then, Indra, taking pity on the women, preached a Vrata to be followed for prostitutes+

Mystery of Mulatrikona

As per #astrology (vedic) #shani is the outermost #Graha which is visible (drik siddhant) .
Shani is also stated as karmkarak and is the lord of 10H and 11H in the kalpurush kundli.
#Surya is stated as the atmakarak with all the grah revolving around
2/n
The journey of the soul from shani to surya is the essence of life/births/rebirths. All our #vedanta postulates karma theory for the same.
3/n
Due to karma (Sa), jeeva(Ju) takes a shareera (Ma-ego) in accordance to his past life vasanas ( Mo) to either enjoy the fruits of past deeds(Ve) or to have bhakti which propels buddhi( Me) to reach the Atman(Su) . Ra-Ke being the nodes can bring the turning point in the manas
--Thread on Origin of the Śatarudrīya Mantrās--

Caution: This write-up is for those with an open mind. If you have an iron-clad presumption reg Veda, kindly stop reading to avoid your beliefs being contradicted (& blaming me). I respect all traditions while adhering to mine.+
A sūkta has some reason for manifesting in the mind of the rishi. The Śatarudrīyam too has a reason, described in Kanda 9 of Śatapatha Brāhmaṇa (SB). It has a support in the Mbh as well, something missed by sayana, bhatta-bhāskara etc+

--The Tryambaka Offerings, Pt 3 (Final) --

+

#Vedas
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+

#SanatanDharm
--The Tryambaka Offerings, Pt 2--

In Part 1, (Link:threadreaderapp.com/thread/1288228…), we clarified “Rudra” signified mind, and “Ambikā” experience of Brahman. In this thread, let's finish interpreting mantras of the Tryambaka rite that come after this+
#Hinduism #Vedic #Sanatani #Vedic
áva rudrámad īmahy áva deváṃ tryàmbakam

We have satisfied mind that bestows good (rudram), that shines out auspicious qualities of Brahman (devam), perceiver of 3 abodes – place, object & instrument for brahmānubhava (tryàmbakam)+

yáthā no vásyasas kárad yád yátʰā naḥ śréyasas kárad yád yátʰā no vyavasāyáyāt

So it may make us wealthy, may it make us attain the path of liberation, make us closely bound to Brahman.+

-- Thread on the Tryambaka Offerings in the Veda --

Tryambaka Ishti is an ancillary rite of Sakamedha Yajna, 1 of the 4 Yajnas comprising Chaturmasya. Housed in Vājasaneyi samhita of Yajur Veda, it contains “tryambakaṃ yajāmahe…” mantra.+

#Vedas #Hinduism #Hindus #Sanatani
However, even good scholars have not been able to decipher the mantra in this section, “rudra bʰāgáḥ sahá svásrā́mbikayā” – which declares Ambikā as sister of Rudra. Many queries about this are on the internet (eg Hinduism Stack Exchange) .+

#Hinduism #Vedic #Sanatani #Hindus
I am giving the interpretation, which those with dispassionate minds can appreciate. To understand why Ambikā is mentioned as a sister of Rudra, one must accept that parts of Veda talk in metaphors and common terms denote many things.+
