Why Veda mantrams are chanted in Sanskrit only ? Why not to translate into Tamil / Marathi , etc and chanted ? --- A beautiful explanation*
Sri T Sadagopan Iyengar is a genius. Studied Physics at IIT and retired from IIT. I admire him for his simplicity and complex knowledge. Sharing a recent post of his--

Interesting response.

I am a firm believer that science and reality are not different.
I will do a little research whenever I get the chance to confirm it.

Recently I attended a Srardham at a relative’s house. That relative has some revolutionary thoughts (he thinks). He was translating all the mantras recited by the Shastri into Tamil meaning..

Tricks, words and tactics. Nowadays jihadists are writing #Vedas, #Upanishads and #Gita, their purpose is to misinterpret and defile the traditional #religion ... This is also an example of tactical #jihad.
The book of #HarafPrakashani, these books are being published from #Kolkata. Aggression has not stopped even today!

To insult #Hinduism, the mullahs would misinterpret the Hindus with reference to the #Vedas.
It will be said that the Vedas speak of Hindus eating cows. In this way, they will contaminate the traditional religion with wrong information. Various groups, IDs, pages have been created on social media Facebook with the names of Hindu girls and boys.

#Thread on how Atharveda advises a couple to strengthen their conjugal relationship and strive together for fulfilling the ultimate objective of being a householder. #husband #wife #vedas #Hinduism #SanatanDharma #family #atharveda #hindu #conjugal #couple #love #house #domestic
In 8th & 9th Suktas of the 6th Kand (Book) of Atharveda, there is advise to couples as to how to experience conjugal bliss and strengthen their life long relationship such as that their domestic life progresses with utmost happiness and contentment.

A Mini-#Thread on what Rig Veda says about the roles and responsibilities of a husband and wife in a householder. #husband #wife #vedas #Hinduism #SanatanDharma #family #rigveda #hindu
Sanatan Dharma has always been a wrongful victim of being allegedly patriarchal, especially when it comes to assignment of roles and responsibilities of husband and wife in managing their households.
.. However, if we analyse the supreme Sanatani knowledge enshrined in the divine Vedas and strive to comprehend the deeper meaning of the relevant mantras, the directives from the same contrast the above mindless allegation.

-- Devī Sūkta of Rg Veda—

Vāk Ambhrāṇi is the goddess of speech. No sādhaṇa is performed without Vāk as basis. As all actions require chanting of mantra, praise of Brahman in the form of stuti etc, Vāk is the basis of all senses used in action. So, Vāk proclaims her glory+
ahaṃ rudrebhirvasubhiścarāmyahamādityairutaviśvadevaiḥ
ahaṃ mitrāvaruṇobhā bibharmyahamindrāgnīahamaśvinobhā

[I move with the Rudras, Vasus, Adityas and the Vishvadevas. I support both Mitra and Varuna, both Indra and Agni, and the two Aśvins]+

#Vedas #Hinduism
Rudras preside over senses & mind that move towards objects. Aditys preside over the 12 months & are called so as they move (adadanah). Vasus preside over fire, earth etc as in these all wealth is placed. So vāk, "moves" with the gods, ie, helps them execute their functions.+

Panini is a great Rishi. Did you know he has a lot of works to his name prime ones being Ashtadyayi, Siksha Shastra of the Vedas and many more.

I would like to discuss about the origins of his Ashtadhyayi.

Ashtadhyayi is his treatise on Vyakarana or grammar of the Vedas. 1/
His story has been mentioned in the Katha Sarit Sagara written by Somadeva Bhatta. Katha Sarit Sagara is the basis for stories from the Panchatantra, The Arabian Nights, Aesop's fables etc.

The story goes like this... 2/
Panini was once in his Gurukul and was somehow not able to concentrate on his work. So his Guru asks his to go to Himalayas and get the blessings/ Anugraha from Siva.

So Panini obeys his Guru and goes to the Himalayas. 3/

---Short Thread on Fear of Brahman--

bhisha.asmadvatah pavate bhishodeti suryah bhisha.asmadagnishchendrashcha . mrityurdhavati pa~nchama iti

Wind blows out of his. Sun rises from fear of him. From fear of him do Agni & Indra function. Death, the 5th, runs in fear of him.+
Now, most commentators take this to be the Supreme Brahman who induces fear, but no-one has actually analysed the concept of fear in such detail as the Vishishtadvaitins have.

#Vedas #Hinduism #SanatanaDharma
What is this fear? The fear is this – “what would happen if we, the devas, did not execute our duties as a service to the Lord? Then, we would experience a break in our meditation on him, which would lead desire for other things and hence samsAra."

-- "Erotic Mantras" of Atharva Veda --

I came across a few mantras of the Atharva Veda which have been deemed to be “erotic” by “scholars”. There has also been discussion about them:+…

#Hinduism #Vedas #Atharvaveda
Scholarly” translation of “erotic mantras” (20.136.3-5) (see screenshot):

“yád devā́so lalāmaguṃ práviṣṭīmínam” – Playful lovers enter with wet penis (lalāmaguṃ)”

“mahānagnyàtr̥pnadvi” – The great naked woman was satisfied.+

Let's see if they actually talk about fat naked women.

yád devā́so lalāmaguṃ práviṣṭīmínam āviṣuḥ |

[Which senses, move (gavate) towards the Supreme Brahman who is the best of objects to be attained (lalāma), entering in various ways (ie, by many actions).]+

Thank you @RapperPandit.
Every #Indian and #European should read this and acknowledge.
Indians have been looted by not just material wealth, but knowledge.

Special thanks to @NileshOak
#Bharat #India has been lied, looted, abused for centuries.
While west believed #Earth was flat and center of #UNIVERSE, India had advanced #Mathematics, #cosmology, metallurgy and #Engineering.
#Europe takes it, refurbishes, labels it their own.
@RajivMessage - U turn theory
How was this possible?
Explained systematically by @RajivMessage U turn theory.
#Indian historians were suppressed or corrupted for money. Libraries were burnt by Islamic invaders.
Europeans wrote #History to suit their agenda. Brainwashed the entire world.

Vrata : what #vedas say?
This is a religious vow observed on a certain day,
week, month or other period, for wish fulfilment or as a means of penance . The worship of a deity is usually accompanied by restrictions
as to food and behaviour.
#vrata #astrology
The Puranas prescribe certain rules and regulations for
persons performing vratas.
The Agni Purina
states ten virtues which must be practiced during a vrata .
These are forbearance, Satya ( truthfulness), daya( compassion), daan(charity), shaucha(purity of body and mind), sainyam (control on the sensory desires), Pooja ie worship of deities,homam, satisfaction
and not depriving another of his possessions.

--Small thread on "forbidden flowers for Lord Vishnu--

Every devata has flowers that he/she likes and dislikes. Difference between other gods and Vishnu is simply that the Lord is the Supreme Being, and there is in reality, no flower he dislikes or won't accept.+

Acceptance or rejection by the Lord is determined by intent. He will accept a thorn if offered in devotion, or when proper flowers are not available. He will not accept even thulasi if offered without devotion.+

#Hinduism #Puja
Azhwars confirm this fact. You can read an article on offerings of flowers here -+…பூளைப்-பூ-and-thorny-flowers/
