Jagadguru Shankaracharya #SriSri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji: People may be classified as Astikas & Nastikas. An Astika has faith in the existence of God, Dharma, reincarnation, & the Vedas. One who has neither of these beliefs is classified a Nastika.
A Nastika cannot easily 1/n
be taught. Even a man who is completely ignorant can be taught. One who knows everything can also be told. But a Nastika is one who is like a man with half-baked knowledge.
अज्ञः सुखमाराध्यः सुखतरमाराध्यते विशेषज्ञः ।
ज्ञानलवदुर्विदगधं ब्रह्मापि नरं न रञ्जयति ॥

The #Shruti 2/n
(Veda) says – पुण्यो ह वै पुण्यः कर्मणा भवति पापः पापेन । – one attains joy by performing Punya and falls by sinning. It is our Dharma Shastras that decide what constitutes Punyam and what constitutes Papam (sin).

Duryodhana tried to cause trouble to the Pandavas even after 3/n

#Virat war at #Matsya is the MOST underplayed battle in the #Mahabharatha. NO thanks to StarPlus #Mahabharat for destroying it entirely, with not ONE arrow fired. In reality, #Arjuna BULLDOZED the entire Kaurava army with ALL it stalwarts. This is what happened
(#BORI text)
- Chief of cowherds runs to Uttara, complains about Kurus killing cowherds and capturing cows
- Uttara repeatedly compares himself with Arjuna, irritating Draupadi
- She says Brihannala was Arjuna’s charioteer at Khandava
- Uttara sends his sister to fetch Brihannala
-At the battlefield, Uttara sees the Kuru army and balks
-Brihannala refuses to turn back and Uttara jumps off and flees
-Brihannala bundles him back saying she will fight
- They reach the sami tree where the weapons are stashed, Brihannala asks Uttara to get them down

There is such unnecessary ruckus about #Karna being '#chariotless' and tragically being killed then when he was 'vulnerable'. This is actually quite a disservice to Karna to hold that w/o chariot he was terribly weakened but apart from that...
#Satyaki faces #Duryodhana, destroys his horses, charioteer. Duryodhana flees and comes back much later upon a new chariot.
#Bhima- #Karna battle. Bhima annihilates his chariot, Karna climbs onto Vrishsena's, as he should. Why the same Karna decides to ask for time later is food for thought and SHOULD make one think.

@Astrology_us Remember an interesting tale from #Mahabharata on this tweet

At d start of #Kurushetra muhurat was set for d #battle date & time to begin it coincided with #Amavasya #NewMoon

#Krishna knew if #war began on Amavasya it was advantage #Duryodhana

So using his Krishna neethi 1/n
@Astrology_us So in order to confuse & convince it was #Amavasya a day before #NewMoon

He did tarpanam as a mark of respect to ancestors which is customary in our tradition

Seeing this msg went upto to all devas including #Sun & #moon tht today is Amavasya #surya #chandra #astrology... 2/n
@Astrology_us Immediately #Sun & #Moon rushed to earth to meet #Krishna

Askng him, on reachng bhoolokam why is he observng #Amavasya today while its actually further away

To this Krishna replied when #Surya & #Chandra are before me at d same time & place is it not #NewMoon #astrology.. 3/n
