Modern science - "everything came from nothing", "everything is just matter and energy".
In that case, life has no value, and it does not matter if one decides to live or die.
Vedas state, cosmic consciousness gave rise to material universe, not vice versa.
Part of truth.
"Earth was created in few days"
Not sure if it considers general relativity.
The man was a yogi and taught love and devotion, and said was a son of god. Explained trinity.
Vedas state, atma - paramātma - brahman. Everyone is part and parcel of god.
Part of truth.

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+

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.

Hail Lord #Radharaman 🚩

1-Today is the #Birth #Anniversary of quite possibly the most interesting #God in the #Sanatana #Pantheon - #Ganehsa!

For #AyurvedicAstrology and #VedicAstrology #Tradition in general – Ganesha is the central #God controlling all the #Planets.
2-The Puja timings at most places today in #India are between 11 and 1 during the day.

No tradition is as rich in #Mythical #Symbolism (that if properly meditated upon – can point to the reality) – as the Vedic Tradition.
3-According to the #Vedic Traditions of #Yoga, #Vastu, #Ayurveda and #Jyotish

..the following are the #Metaphors and #Allegories associated with #Ganesha

--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+

Good Morning!

Continuing our #Dialogue on #Gems and #GemTherapy, today we shall dwell on the next two #GemStones.

#YellowSapphire and #Diamond. (1/13)

2-Yellow Sapphire is D highest quality Gemstone used 4 #Jupiter.

Substitute Gemstones for Yellow Sapphire are Yellow Tourmaline, #Citrine, Yellow #Zircon and #Topaz.

In my view, I have seen that Yellow Sapphire is one of the most widely prescribed Gemstone. (2/13)

3-Being related to #Jupiter it is bound to activate within you – the #Energy of the #Universal #Guru.

Out of the four #Vedic #Purusharthas, of #Dharma, #Artha, #Kama and #Moksha, Yellow Sapphire well and truly stands for #Dharma.

#thread on article by #SoumyaDeb on @IndiaFactsOrg

He tried to defend well the words exonym #Hindu and oxymoron #Hinduism.

He cited historians #romilathapar @D_N_Jha #RobertEricFrykenberg


@Aloft_Incumbent once stated that the WORD '#Hindu' didn;t exist. To which I disagree.

Should she disagree with facts I provide, please reply.

Magathenese a #Greek traveller long back noted India as '#Indus' ~400 BCE.

@Sanjay_Dixit @mamatarsingh

India was known as country bounded by INDUS river, Himalaya & sea from 3 side.
FaXian 400 AD called India as Shintu, and Hindu is corrupted name of Chinese name IN-TU. (H+Indus)

#Hindu word existed even before another Abrahamic faith took birth.

Klim – pronounced as #Kleem is about the wonderful, seductive #God - #Krishna

#Klim is blissful and full of #Ananda – because Krishna is #Bliss (pure #Ananda!) (2/21)

3-#Klim also relates to #Sundari the #Goddess of #Love, #Beauty and #Transcendence

#Klim activates #Desire, #Love and #Attraction

In #VedicAstrology #Klim is used to invoke #Venus and sometimes #moon. (3/21)

The word caste and Hindus are inventions of marauders, invader, colonisers to be able to distinguish themselves from only surviving Civilization IVSC till date.
Some point of differences 👇

1/4 Image
In the earliest recorded history by Magasthenes around 400 BC, the Indian population was divided based on PROFESSION and not Caste.

A weekend home work for you to study and take down your tweet if you agree.


Let me know for any point of disagreement. For I could not post bundles of information due to paucity of space

1-We have been talking about #Mantras and their place in the #Vedic #Tradition.

Today, let’s dwell on the #Shakti Mantras – quite perhaps the most #esoteric and #Powerful entities in their own right. (1/19)

2-A word of caution here.

Shakti Mantras are like an Atomic Bomb

They are extremely powerful

..and should be practiced with due consideration, initiation and guidance by your #Guru and under your full #Intuition. (2/19)

@ijyotish @shashankupadhy_

3-Fundamentally, Shakti Mantras are extremely powerful, mono or single syllabled mantras.

In the higher Yogic practices they have a special usage. (3/19)

Hinduism or Hindutva as we know today is a term given to Sanatan 'Eternal' philosophy (Vedic) the only known, oldest, surviving religion or faith (pick as may please u) to date

@MJKSaddozai let me know if you find evidence contrary in this #Thread

The estimation of vedic (one who follows Vedas) philosophy evolution is around ~52kya with known astronomical records. I know vedas will render all the history and science books OLD as its verses are decoded and solved scientifically
Lets come back to topic #Hindu. India was known to west as country on the other side of INDUS river covered by Himalaya and sea from 3 side. Chinese travellers FaXian 400 AD called India as Shintu, and Hindu is corrupted name of Chinese name IN-TU

--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:……

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, (…), 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)+

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.+

1-Why is #Gayatri known as the Queen of #Mantras in #Sanatana?

The #Gayatri #Mantra is the most revered mantra in the #Vedic lore. (1/27)


2-It is an invocation as well as a prayer addressed to the Supreme #Creator of the #Universe

..and of the three worlds..

..the terrestrial, the celestial, and the one connecting these two. (2/27)


3-The literal meaning of the mantra is as follows -

We meditate on the glory of that #Ishwara

..the Supreme Lord of the universe

..Who has created this universe

..Who is accomplished to be revered

Who is the embodiment of true knowledge and light (3/27)

1) How to understand Vedas.

For Sanatana Dharma or Hinduism, Vedas are most important texts, all out texts say Vedas are most Important.But when we see translation of Vedas many of us find them illogical or simply wrong.
2) Why even prominent scholars of sanskrit fail to understand #Vedas? Why Vedas need so much explanation? Let's see.
3) First, vedas are written in #Vedic sanskrit using Yaugica which is different from normal or Laukik Sanskrit.
How is it different?

1-I have been reading some significant amount of #Jung’s works.

It is incredible, how much his realizations resonated with #Vedic views.

Both sides of Jung’s family had been pastors and #theologians with his father being a minister.

2-Jung naturally grew up dwelling on religious issues.

The #God he imagined was not personal or enlightening,

.....but simply represented the #power of the #universe in all its light, darkness, chance, and infiniteness

#innerwork #karma #time #universe #nature
3-Through dreams he felt led to the conclusion that God actually wants us to think “bad thoughts,”

.....thoughts that go against established #morality, so that we can make our way independently back to God.
