Yudhishtira:
माता गुरुतरा भूमेः पिता उच्चतरश्च खात्(The mother is weightier than the earth; the father is higher than the heaven)
#ParentsFirst-Ray of wisdom by #SriSri #Chandrashekara Bharathi Mahaswamiji:

HH asked a devotee,who sought initiation if he knew the dictates..1/3 Image
of the #Upanishads that one should consider mother as god first and then the father and then the guru. The devotee admitted the knowledge. HH asked him to come after following the first two dictates. The devotee then submitted that his parents were not kind to him and there..2/4
was no opportunity to serve them. Sri Jagadguru clarified that the dictate was addressed to him and not to his parents. He should strive hard to please them and gradually win their love. If he did not fulfil his obligation to his parents first, there was no use in 3/4

#MahaPeriyava Once some learned people were conversing with Sri Maha Periyava. Even though the topic was on a high level Vedantic matter, Periyava’s talk and the language was so simple that even an illiterate could understand it easily. It was different from the lectures normally
delivered by Pundits. At that time, a young man from Australia came there to have His darshan. The young man was doing research on the comparison of various religions and he could speak small sentences in Sanskrit. After the normal enquiries, Periyava asked him what he wanted.
“How should I be? How should I live? What is way of life? What is the way to perform good deeds in life and to get good results?” The young man piled his queries, politely. After a few minutes silence, Periyava said, “All that is okay. But why come here (Kalavai was the place)

Mirabai’s teaching:

When Mirabai went to Vrindavan she wanted to see Jiva Goswami the greatest Sanatan Dharma scholar and Maa Radha Govind devotee of that time.

Mirabai sent Jiva Goswami a request for darshan. Jiva Goswami denied saying he does not meet women.. #Gita #Yoga #Om
To this Mirabai replied, who is this MALE in Vrindavan, I have heard that the soul is a consort of the Supreme Lord.

Jiva Goswami was ashamed and fell at Mirabai’s feet.

Let me tell you another secret, which is hidden within deep texts of Sanatan Dharma. #Gita #Yoga #Karma #Om
All Deva or Demigods secretly have a eternal Gopi Rupa!
If you visit Vrindavan you should surely go to Gopishvar Mahadev - Mahadev as an eternal

𝟭. 𝗪𝗼𝗿𝗱 #𝗦𝗵𝗶𝘃𝗮 (शिव) has been derived by reversing letters of the word ‘vash’ (वश्). Vash means to enlighten; hence, one who enlightens is Shiva. He illuminates the universe.

#Thread on #divyadesams. Divya Desams are Sri Vishnu temples which the 12 Vaishnava saints or the Azhwars have sung in their hymns in praise of Sri Vishnu. There are 108 Divya Desams, 106 can be visited in mortal life. The other two are in the celestial abode of Sri Vishnu. Image
#azhwar means ‘immersed’. Azhwars are considered to be devotees of Vishnu who have fully immersed themselves in #bhakti. They lived between 5th-8th centuries CE, composing hymns in praise of Sri Vishnu. Their songs are compiled as #DivyaPrabandham containing 4000 verses.
106 #DivyaDesam temples one can visit in this life are located in TN (85), Kerala (11) Uttar Pradesh (4) Uttarakhand (3) Andhra (2) Gujarat (1) and Muktinath in Nepal. It is the dream of every Sri Vaishnava to visit Divya Desams in his/her lifetime. SS via shaktipeethas.org Image

A thread on some quotes from @gautambhatia88’s “The transformative constitution “In equality jurisprudence, the approach of focusing on the disproportionately exclusionary impact if politics rather than their formal character or motive is known as disparate impact”
“It is based on the premise that inequality and discrimination result not (only) from individual hostile acts, but from structures and institutions.” @gautambhatia88 Only in brackets important & added by me.
An test for entry may be “neutral” but yet exclude by aligning with exclusionary institutions; if an physical entrance test for firefighter includes activities not necessary for fulfilling duties and unintentionally poses #gender-barriers, deserves to be struck down. #NoteToSelf

After the sowing of crops in July, as part of a bi-annual 800 yr old #tradition, lakhs of #pilgrims/ warkaris from all over rural Maharashtra walk a distance of around 240 kms from Dehu & Alandi to meet their beloved Lord Vithoba. ruralindiaonline.org/articles/walki… ImageImage
Over the centuries many poets from Maharashtra belonging to the progressive #Bhakti tradition of devotional poetry have walked the Wari. Such was their influence that even centuries later the pilgrims go to Pandharpur to honour the reformist poet-saints. ruralindiaonline.org/articles/the-e… ImageImage
