🧵The self-realization path: In the famous Ankola Sloka of Shivanandalahari, the various stages of Bhakti are vividly portrayed. A chaste wife, whatever be the nature of her husband, devotes herself to the service of him. There is a clear distinction between the Bhagawan and

the Bhakta. It is the type of Bhakti characterized as 'dāsyam'. A creeper, which, growing near the tree, slowly catches hold of the trunk for support and ultimately when fully grown completely covers the tree. Here the relationship between the Bhagawan and the devotee is

intimate and close as between friends. This superior Bhakti is called 'Sakhyam'. Final example - A river finding its way into the sea and becoming completely one with the sea after confluence. In a similar way, the devotee after having given up everything which is the

🧵A #MustRead : The business of Vedas is not actually physical sciences. But, in the course of developing philosophy, Vedas make some scientific statements. When we consider the question of space. The Vedas say that space is not empty; it is not vacuum. There are pages &

pages of arguments to prove that there are some qualities for free space and therefore it is not vacuum. It is precisely those qualities that we associate with space today, e.g. propagation of light and radio waves. Then the Vedas say that space is distorted in the presence

of matter! There is a discussion in the Shastras about the dimensions of the individual soul. Such a question is not even raised in science -whether in biology or psychology. What is the dimension of the individual soul? The first argument that it is of the size of

🧵On the revered #Salagrama which is being transported from #Nepal in order to carve the idol of #SriRama at #Ayodhya

Amongst the valued possessions and hallowed objects of worship in a devout Hindu's home, are the Salagramas, those pebble-like objects, smooth to the touch,
spheroid in shape, and black, red, or mixed in colour. That they are, for the most part, a hereditary possession of the family, handed down from generation to generation, is sufficient testimony to the veneration bestowed upon them by our ancients. Not to be bought or sold,
it is a prized gift or dana, and it is given as a valued gift in some places to the bridegrooms along with the bride. The #salagramasila is considered the embodiment of #Vishnu. Its mantra has Shri #Bhagvan for #Rishi or Drashta, and #Narayana as Devata or the object of

🧵Measurement Versus Consciousness:

"#consciousness is one thing that 'measures' everything else in the #universe"

Light qualifies itself eminently as a means of measurement because it measures both space and time in one. Its velocity is the highest in the physical world, 1/n
and therefore, it happens to be the first signal. But its finite velocity is also a factor of limitation, Space and time provide the basic frame of reference for everything else in nature and light provides the single yardstick to measure them both. It has become possible for 2/n
the #physicist to construct his absolute world on the basis of light propagation because of its virtues stated above. If light commends itself to the physicist as an absolute standard of reference, what is it that commends itself as an absolute standard of reference to the 3/n

Our PM in the Birthplace of Sri #AdiShankaracharya 🚩

The greatness of Sri Adi Shankaracharya is best expressed in the following quote by Bhagini Nivedita: "Western people can hardly imagine a personality like that of Shankar Acharya…

In the course of a few years to have nominated the founder of no less than ten great religious orders.. of which four have fully retained their prestige to the present day, to have acquired such a mass of Sanskrit learning as to create a distinct philosophy and..

impress himself on the Scholarly imagination of India, is a pre-eminence that 1200 years have not sufficed to shake; to have written poems whose grandeur makes them unmistakable, even to foreign & unlearned ears, & at the same time to have lived with his disciples in all…

#AdiShankaracharya Math, Shringeri in #Karnataka

A young Adi Shankara traversed across the western ghats searching for a place to set up an ashram for his disciples. He reached present day Shringeri besides river Tunga after walking for miles.

The midday sun was at its scorching best! On the bank of the river, was a snake, with its hood raised over a frog. It appeared as if the snake was about to devour the frog, but a closer look revealed that the snake was, in fact, protecting the frog from the harsh sun!
Curious now, he continued to watch, and saw that the snake was indeed shading the frog, which was undergoing labour pains! The moment passed, and the creatures went their way. However, the young man was struck by the sight of a creature being protected by its deadly enemy.

This is #VyasGufa where Chiranjeevi Rishi Krishn Dwaipayan,known as #VedVyas for dividing the Vedas,did Sadhna Tapasya
#AdiShankaracharya also did Tapasya in this cave & taught Brahma Sutras & Upanishads to his disciples here
Its in the last village- Mana, on Indo Tibetan border ImageImage
In this cave itself, #VedVyas ji gave Darshan to #AdiShankaracharya & granted him 16 more years of life to
write commentaries on #BhagavadGita & Upnishads.
Unfortunate Hindus, who instead of absorbing those energies, come here to make reels & click selfies.. govts give a damn!
Sanctity of the precious sthal is marred by pink chuna painted on it, some cheap construction in & around it & the Macchi bazaar of uninformed Hindus- an example of ones who are hell bent upon ruining their heritage!
I sat in dhyan there for 3 consecutive days in spite of all! ImageImage

आद्य शंकराचार्य जयंती🕉️- प्रेरक प्रसंग 🙏

आद्य शंकराचार्य ने एक ३० वर्ष के युवक को संन्यास की दीक्षा दी। उसके पिता ७५ वर्ष के थे । उन्हें यह बात अनुचित लगी। उन्होंने उनसे परिवाद (शिकायत) किया।

@VishwambharMule @Lokagatha_ @ASG100_
🔷युवक के पिता : आपने यह क्या किया ? यह कैसा संन्यास ?मेरा बेटा अभी गृहस्थाश्रम में भी नहीं गया है; बाद में वानप्रस्थाश्रम आएगा। ७० वर्ष के उपरांत संन्यास लिया जाता है, यह बात धर्मशास्त्र कहता है। आप शास्त्र के विरुद्ध कार्य कर रहे हैं। शास्त्र की आज्ञा का उल्लंघन कर रहे हैं।
शंकराचार्य शांत रहकर उनकी सब बातें सुनते रहे । पिता का बोलना समाप्त होने पर उन्होंने कहा, आपका कहना उचित है । मैैं समझौता करने के लिए तैयार हूं ।

🔷पिता (चकित होकर) पूछता है : इसका अर्थ ?
