Whys #NavPancham considered generally good?#NavPancham is #Genesis, #Progression, #CauseEffect relations. In #KaalPurush #Kundali, if #Jaatak is denoted by #Lagan, his/her progeny is denoted by the #PanchamBhaav while the father of this #Jaatak is the #NavamBhaav of the #Chart...
Many ancient #Astrologers have expressed that a #Bhaav can find #Catalyst 5 houses behind itself or 9 houses away from itself (same thing).

So in effect if there is any good connection of the #Navam #Bhaav with the #Lagan (or #Navam #Bhaav from any other #Bhaav) ...
the particular #Bhaav in question can get #SuPrabhaav. The #Lagan or any other #Bhaav is always the #PanchamBhaav from the #Navam.Hence the theory- #NavPancham, is generally considered #YogKaarak.

Basic theories apply as always...

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

#Vedic texts suggest that #Hindus originally did not worship idols and build #temples, and it is quite likely that both Hindus and #Buddhists got the idea from the #Greeks.
#India accounted for 33% of the #World economy in AD 1.
#China's share was 26% of World GDP.
India was by far the World's economic superpower at that time.
#Indians sold textiles, spices and demanded precious metals in payment.
Not a year passed in which #India did not take 50 million sesterces away from #Rome.

This word, my friends, is so fascinating that one could write a whole PhD thesis about it (trust me, I know). The immediate reconstruction for all items in 1/ is a masculine n-stem with a nom. sg. *hₓuksō(n). For such a stem we would expect a nom. pl. *hₓuksō̆nes.
2/16
However, just as all languages point to or are consistent with an “amphikinetic” nom. sg. *hₓuksō(n), the evidence of three separate and independent branches unequivocally supports reconstructing a “hysterokinetic” nom. pl. *hₓuksénes.

--- 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+

-- Vamadeva's Hymn --

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:

kadal gyālam seydhenum yāne ennum kadal gyālam āvenum yāne ennum kadal gyālam koṇdenum yāne ennum kadal gyālam kīṇdenum yāne ennum (Thiruvaimozhi 5.7.1)+

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...."+

#Vedas #Hinduism #SanatanaDharma
"...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+

#Hinduism #Vedas #SanatanaDharma
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+

#श्री_राधारमण_मंदिर_वृंदावन

This furnace belongs to #ShriRadharaman temple which has been burning continuously for the past 478 years.

This furnace which has been burning for many years is used to prepare the kitchen of Thakur ji. This furnace is also used in Image
preparing prasad instead of lighting lamps in Shri Radharaman temple. Agni for the first aarti of the temple was revealed 478 years ago from today through #Vedic mantras. For this, Aranya Manthan was supported.

Only after that, Thakur created this feeling in the mind
of Gopal Bhatt Goswami to perform Thakur's Aarti in the future with this fire. This is the reason why matchstick has not been used in this temple for about five hundred years. Even today, Thakur's Aarti is performed with five hundred years ago fire.

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) --

In past 2 threads, I covered the Tryambaka Ishti of Sakamedha, explaining exactly what “sister of Rudra” meant, and the Mṛtasanjīvanī mantra here. Links to previous threads: threadreaderapp.com/thread/1288228…

threadreaderapp.com/thread/1288574…

#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+

--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)+

#Hinduism #Vedic #SanatanaDharma #Hindus
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.+
