people come to his abode for practising Brahmacharya...."
2/ "... It is through Brahmacharya of this kind that the celestials attained to their divinity, and sages, highly blessed and of great wisdom,
have obtained the region of Brahman. It is by this that the
Gandharvas and the Apsaras acquired such personal beauty"

1. To all the bigoted Hinduphobes who constantly harp on & on & on & on & on & on & on about the "caste system" when talking about Hinduism - we see you & we're gonna start calling your SORRY ASSES OUT. Hinduism is the world's oldest religion and is a deeply profound..
2. spiritual, scientific, & all-encompassing living philosophy. It has survived for millennia & it’s beautiful teachings are flourishing organically in America for a reason: they work. Hinduism has given the world yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, the concepts of karma, dharma,...

இப்போது வந்து உள்ள (கொரோனா) போல காலரா,அம்மை நோய்கள் போன்ற நோய்கள் நம் கிராமத்தில் வந்து ஒன்றுக்கு மேற்பட்ட நபர்கள் இறக்க நேரிட்டால், நம் முன்னோர்கள், "தெய்வ குற்றம்' ஏற்ப்பட்டுவிட்டது என்று உடனே கோயில் திருவிழா ஏற்பாடு செய்து "காப்பு" கட்டி விடுவார்கள்.

கிராமத்தில் நான்கு திசைகளிலும் நான்கு அம்மனுக்கு சிலைகள் வைத்து வேப்ப மரத்தை எல்லை காக்கும் எல்லையம்மனாக கருதி வழிப்பட்டனர்.

அம்மனுக்கு காப்புக் கட்டி திருவிழா வைப்பார்கள்.

இதனால் இந்த ஊர் மக்கள் வெளியூர் செல்ல மாட்டார்கள்.

வெளியூர் மக்கள் இந்த ஊருக்கு வர மாட்டார்கள்,

இதனால் நோய் பரவாமல் தடுக்கப்படும்.

மேலும் வீதியெங்கும் வேப்பிலை தோரணமும்,
வீட்டு வாசலில் வேப்பிலை,மாவிலை கொத்து சொருகி வைப்பதுடன், மாட்டுச் சாணம் தெளித்து மாவு அரிசி கோலம் போட்டு செம்மண் கரைத்து கோலத்தைச் சுற்றி வட்டமிடுவார்கள்.

ಮುಟ್ಟಿನ ಜೊತೆಗೆ ಅಂಟಿದ ಕೆಲವು ಮಿಥ್ಯ ಗಳ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಹೇಳಲು ಇಷ್ಟ ಪಡುತ್ತೇನೆ.

1. ಮುಟ್ಟಾದರೆ ಅವಳು ಹೊರಗಿರಬೇಕು - ಅಶುದ್ಧ!

ನಿಜವಾಗ್ಲೂ ಇದು ಹೆಣ್ಣಿನ ವಿಶ್ರಾಂತಿಗಾಗಿ ಮಾಡಿದ ನಿಯಮ.
ಎಷ್ಟೇ ಹುಷಾರಿಲ್ಲ ಅಂದ್ರೂ ಹೆಣ್ಣು ಕೆಲ್ಸ ಮಾಡೋದು ಕಮ್ಮಿ ಮಾಡಲ್ಲ! ಏನಾದ್ರೂ ಹುಡುಕಿ ಮಾಡ್ತಾಳೆ 🤦🏻‍♀️

ಅವಳಿಗೆ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ರೆಸ್ಟ್ ಸಿಗಲಿ ಅಂತ ಇದನ್ನ
ಉದ್ದೇಶ ಇಟ್ಕೊಂಡ್ ಮಾಡಿದ್ದು..

ಹೆಣ್ಣು ಅಶಕ್ತಳಲ್ಲ.. ಆದ್ರೂ ಅತಿಯಾಗಿ ಕೆಲ್ಸ ಮಾಡ್ತಾಳೆ - ಇಡೀ ಕುಟುಂಬದ ಜವಾಬ್ದಾರಿ ತಗೊಂಡ್ ಇರ್ತಾಳೆ.

ಮುಟ್ಟಿನ ಸಮಯದಲ್ಲಾದರೂ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ರೆಸ್ಟ್ ಮಾಡ್ಲಿ ಅಂತ ಶುರು ಮಾಡಿದ ಪದ್ಧತಿ ಇದು..

ನಮ್ಮ ಆಚರಣೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಮಹಿಳೆಯರಿಗೆ ಎಷ್ಟೊಂದು ವಿಶಿಷ್ಟ ಸ್ಥಾನಮಾನ ಇತ್ತು..

ಎಲ್ಲೋ ಮರೆತು ಬಿಟ್ವಿ..
2. ಮುಟ್ಟಾದಾಗ ದೇವಸ್ಥಾನಕ್ಕೆ, ಪೂಜೆಗೆ ಹೋಗಬಾರದು - ಅವಳು ಅಶುದ್ಧ..

ಇದು ಕೂಡಾ ತಪ್ಪಾಗಿ ಅರ್ಥೈಸಲಾಗಿದೆ..

ದೇವಸ್ಥಾನಗಳು ಶಕ್ತಿ ಕೇಂದ್ರಗಳು.
ಅದರ ವಾಸ್ತು, construction ನೋಡಿದ್ರೆ ಗೊತ್ತಾಗುತ್ತೆ.
ನಮ್ಮಲ್ಲಿ ಶಕ್ತಿಯ ಹರಿವನ್ನು "ಮೂಲಾಧಾರ ಚಕ್ರದಿಂದ ಸಹಸ್ರಾರ" ಕಡೆಗೆ ಕಳಿಸಲು ಸಹಾಯ ಮಾಡುತ್ತೆ.

It's clear that #AnuragThakur, #PraveshVarma and #KapilMishra gave provoking statements, Govt should take action on them and #TusharMehta you are Solicitor General of India,not private lawyer of BJP. Stop defending people who are not related to Central Govt.
Let's think, wasn't there any riots before their statements? Wasn't buses were burn in the name of saving dEmOcRaCy? Wasn't AAP MLA's (especially #AmanatullahKhan) also gave provoking speeches? (Which is the root of all this nonsense) Wasn't he shared stage with #SharjeelImam?
Wasn't Delhi Dy CM #ManishSisodia spread fake news by sharing old video of Delhi police saying Police lit up the buses? Wasn't #NDTV journos gave limelight to so called 'Sheros of #Jamia' who doesn't believe in Secularism and Judiciary of this country & rushed to defend Sharjeel?

Devotee : "Swami ji, who is the founder of Christianity?''

Swami @Chinmayananda : ''Jesus''

Devotee : ''Who is the founder of Islam?''

Swami Chinmayananda : "Mohammed''

Devotee : ''Who is the founder of #Hinduism?''

Swami Chinmayananda : ''.....''
Devotee : ''What Swami ji, your religion doesn't have a founder?''

Swami Chinmayananda : ''There is no one particular founder for Hinduism as its not an outcome of one personality's knowledge.

Let me put the same question to you.

Who is the founder of Chemistry? Physics?
You cannot answer, because these are sciences which had contributions from plenty of scientists.

In Hinduism, Our Rishis were the scientists".

Devotee : .........

Swami Chinmayananda : ''If you ask a Christian to give book on Christianity, he gives you Holy Bible.

In the Bhagavad Gita, why does Krishna talk about his opinions?

So, Everyone as a Human have different opinions.

In the case of Bhagavad Gita, Krishna is following 2 basics of Vedas.
This Universe is unlimited and change is the only truth, death is just a part of this change.

You yourself create your future, you yourself make your friends and enemies, you yourself set your limits.

You are the only God for Yourself!!
Never believe that you are always correct because right and wrong are relative terms. Truth have no value and existence without False and vice versa similarly anything correct in your eyes can be Incorrect for someone else.

That's why he used the term "in my opinion"

A rare conversation between Krishna & Today's Arjuna.

1. Arjuna :- I can't find free time. Life has become hectic.

Krishna :- Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.

2. Arjuna :- Why has life become complicated now?
Krishna :- Stop analyzing life... It makes it complicated. Just live it.

3. Arjuna :- Why are we then constantly unhappy?

Krishna :- Worrying has become your habit. That's why you are not happy.

4. Arjuna :- Why do good people always suffer?
Krishna :- Diamond cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don't suffer.
With that experience their life becomes better, no bitter.

5: Arjuna :- You mean to say such experience is useful?

1/4 Hinduism and Hindutva are like Paramatma or Jeevatma at the end there is only one bird , illusion is that of two.
Hinduism is like SANDALWOOD on which several Snakes lives but it still retains its FRAGNANCE. It is way of life for Hindus which is embedded in DNA. #Hindutva
In today's situations those who claim to be protecting Hinduism from Hindutva have never protected Hinduism from conversion efforts, leftist attacks, media distortion or social marginalization.
They Prefer a Hinduism that has no voice or political presence. In short they are anti-Hindu forces in disguise.
Even Now a days Hindus are not following their vedic culture then how are they supposed to be protector.

Meaning of Swastika.

Swastika linguistically means "good existence" or "condusice to well being.
Some people consider it to be negative because of Nazis. But this is not the actual. Can we blame Max muller and his entire team? Let's first jump on to the history of Swastika.
Swastika is Indian dharmic symbol
Of #hinduism #buddhism #jainism and used in entire south east asia.
But also long before nazis it was used by westerners too as a good will. Finnland air force still used the symbol & they were a part of WW2 against nazis. So what is swastika?
We should not care much about the western interpretation coz we should always see the origin not the end. Swastika has an origin which is the origin of universe.

There's a lot of chance most of you interested in the Middle East saw this 5-pointed 5-colored star at some time during your (real-life/online) travels. There's also a lot of chance most of you don't exactly know what is symbolizes or represents. A thread on this #Druze symbol.
The #Druze (#Arabic sg. darzī - pl. durūz) are an esoteric ethno-religious community concentrated in #Syria's al-Suwaydāʾ, the Golan Heights and #Lebanon's al-Shūf Mountains. They count around a million adherents, forming a substantial minority in the Levant.
The Druze religion is as syncretic as it is esoteric, mixing elements of Isma'ilism, #Hinduism, Neoplatonism and Gnosticism together in a monotheistic setting. Without going too much into detail, we'll explore some key elements of their creed in order to understand their symbol.

Topic: Memorizing Vedas

Undoubtedly, vedas are the oldest texts on dharma and spirituality. Its the very first literature that was scientific and properly organized per their benefits. This was available in written as well as oral teachings were given.
#vedas #hinduism
We all know that many people memorized each and every word and methods to recite. ShriRama, ravan, shrikrishna, Devi Lopamudra, Devi Maitry, Devi Ghosha and many more learnt vedas regardless of gender and social differences.
These great legends were also the knowledge transmitters to generations. Written books were just a support to the 5 senses for the purpose to learn. But the actuality is to have perfect oral pronunciations in order to connect to the Atman. How did they achieve that?
Let's see

1/n #SadarPranam @ShashiTharoor ji. Saw this fake table shared by @anubhavsinha & you.I chose to respond to you than former for I don’t like talking to bullies.

I have discussed myths abt “Hindutva & Hinduism” in my book #ModiAgain :An Ex-Communist’s Manifesto” too. (Pg 96-99)
2/n I start of with 1st point & trust me what it says is exactly opposite of truth. I’m surprised a language expert like you falls on this trap.

I’ll explain #Hinduism & #Hindutva one by one. But before that let’s understand the root word “Hindu” as starter. Read on👇🏼
3/n Hindu is derived from the Sanskrit word Sindhu, which means "a large body of water", covering "river, ocean".It was used as the name of the Indus river and also referred to its tributaries.

Since the coming of #Islam to #Kashmir, since 1389 there have been 7 recorded exoduses of Kashmiri #Hindus and #Sikhs due to genocide and persecution at the hands of radical Islam.
The first exodus OF #Hindus from #Kashmir (AD 1389-1413) was under the Shah Mir Dynasty. Tourists may not notice that the iconic Dal Lake has a mass grave of Kashmiri Hindus known as "Bhatt Mazar" or "grave of Brahmins".
The second mass exodus (1506-1585) of Kashmiri #Hindus and #Buddhists was under Ali Shah Chak Dynasty, which made the persecution of Kashmiri Hindus a royal policy.

They boasted that they killed 900 Hindus daily for refusing to convert to Islam.

Mandala is a sanskrit word meaning circle. It is an important spiritual symbol in Hinduism, jainism and buddhism. The origin, however, is from hinduism. This symbol is a representation of cosmos. Not only that, it represents the structure of life and death
These kind of patterns can be found in all over south and south east Asia. Physics, chemistry, geology, biology, psychology uses this symbol to understand the life propelling force in every cell and planet and mind.
In astronomy mandala represents the position of planets on regards to another planet. In #hinduism there are mandalas like surya mandala or Chandra mandala.

#shiva lingam is important elliptical shape structure important in #Hinduism. Some people with a special agenda portrays this as a male organ.
At first glance, we see that there is a pillar & a disc shape below it. Below disc is a wide structure for support.
Shiva Purana & vedas describe this as a cosmic pillar. Purana state it as pillar of fire. The lingam is made up of three parts.
The top structure is the shiva called bramhanad (AUM), the base is known as bramha-pitha, the middle portion as Vishnu.
Sine wave is another way of observing the energies produced by it. How? The bottom part of is going deeper in the ground. Architecturally, any pillar (ordinary) which goes deeper in the ground, fetch tremendous energy. But the only difference is radiating it properly.

@lobonkha 1/n Excellent Thread @lobonkha ,with further inputs,from @From_Himalaya
Just have a few queries/concern & thought of raising them here,hope collectively,we can find some answers.
The atrocities against Hindus,genocide,is well documented, however,not wide reached,as I see,as for
@lobonkha @From_Himalaya many,these gory barbaric details, would be unknown,so thanks for bringing them out.
1.)Why haven't these details & more such so,not reached to every Hindu,who could read,so far. What's #Viraat_Hindu_NationaList party doing to include them in History text books?
2)What happened to
@lobonkha @From_Himalaya those Jihadis,who were behind such acts & their descendants. Any fight for justice for Hindus massacred,so far?
3.)Why hasn't #Kaandi been charged for genocide enablement against Hindus,
for #Crimes_Against_Humanity?
Rather #BJP doing #Kaandi_Bhajan?
Many suggested,such & other
