द्विधाकृत्वात्मनो देहमर्धेन पुरुषोभवत्
अर्घेन नारी तस्यां स विराजमसृजत्प्रभु। - #Manusmriti

“In the beginning, the world was equally split into two and from one part man was created, while from the other a woman.”
Note The EQUAL split. #Hinduism #InternationalWomensDay
No. Not created from a man because he was bored and lonely. Woman isn’t a man’s entertainment.
परपत्नी तु या स्त्री स्यादसंबन्धा च योनित:
तां ब्रूयाद्भवतीत्येव सुभगे भगिनीति च।
A woman who isn’t your wife and who isn’t related by birth should be addressed respectfully as “Blessed” “thou” or “Sister” respectfully. - #Manusmriti #WomensDay

Wouldn’t SM be wonderful then?

Every @SriNithyananda devotee will forever remember this day from nine years ago. We watched our guru, the love of our life, get abused, tortured, and his sannyasinis were put through hell in the hands of a murderous mob.
Read this for more details. Full post here: facebook.com/ParamahamsaNit…
The media happily supported and egged on this mob fury, and "jokes" were freely circulated. All those devotees who knew about Swamiji's innocence were put through hell - ashramites were raped, multiple murder attempts were made.

#Thread on #Hindu #Hinduism & #Hindutva. I saw this as an imprudent need & hence the thread as below cc @vivekagnihotri @RatanSharda55 @Sanjay_Dixit @_NAN_DINI @GitaSKapoor @sankrant @DikshitSmita @Shubhrastha 👇🏼Pic: Trimurti Sadashiva sculpture on Gharapuri Island
2/n #Hinduism is a reduced nomenclature given to the Sanatana Dharma by British in 1830s. The word Hinduism is formed by adding suffix ISM to Hindu.

ISM is defined as a distinctive practice, system, or philosophy, typically a political ideology or an artistic movement.
3/n It must be understood that Hindu term always had geo-cultural meaning covering for people residing amid Sindhu River, Himalayas & Indu Sagar. Then in this case adding suffix ISM is nothing but mocking English Language. Eg, u can’t add Ism to Japanese and call Japaneism.

While @vijayanpinarayi the loyal Vatican agent is hell bent on insulting #LordAyyappa & destroying His Naishitka bramachariyam by allowing women (menstruating age) the
protests against this attack on #SanatanaDharmam is unfortunately confined to Kerala alone ! #Sabarimalatemple
Our strength-divided by languages, rituals,food habits bt United by common belief in #SanatanaDharma!
Unfortunately Hindus lost these values due to successive invasions, colonial rule & thiruttu #Dravidam
resulting in GOD's becoming region specific..North/south!

#OSHO #hypnosis

The #unconscious #mind is nine times bigger than the #conscious; it has tremendous treasures, all the memories of your past.

Below the unconscious, there is the collective unconscious. One can descend into the collective unconscious also with somebody’s help.
The master of Mystery School will take you slowly towards the unconscious and the collective #unconscious.

In your collective unconscious, you have memories of your #PastLives as animals, as birds.
Below the collective unconscious is the #cosmic #unconscious.

Slowly, slowly one can go deeper and deeper, and the cosmic unconscious has #memories of your being trees, rosebushes, stones.

1-I have always seen, it is the "RW intellectuals" who are the biggest enemies of #Hinduism
They are the ones who are the first to pull down anyone trying to do anything different, which they cant do, dont hv vision to do.
They dont care abt #Hindusim> only about their egos.
2-The people who have 2 koudi ka jnana about Shaastras, traditions, who won't know which mantra means what in what puja, who can and can't do puja in a Mahadeva temple, are the ones who go around "preaching" Hinduism, and giving pain to the sincere folks working hard day & night
3-Extraordinary powers were are LIFESTYLE. They were the essence of BEING Hindu.

Be it Ramayana, Mahabharata, Puranas, Vedas, Agamas - EVERY where these shaktis are mentioned & described in detail.

#India #KakoriTrainRobbery #History has it that A staunch Sanatani Arya Samaji, Cow protector, young poet and writer who rose from extreme poverty, and was involved in Shuddhukaran or reconversion of People to #Hinduism, met a nationalist, progressive #Muslim (yes, they exist).
#History has it that they became friends who couldn’t live without one another. A day when the #Muslim friend suffered a fit, he went down crying “Ram, Ram” which shocked his family. Later they realised he was chanting his friend’s name. #India
The two friends were great sons of #India Ram Prasad #Bismil and #Ashfaqullah Khan Warsi. They become friends, they lived and died together. #History has it that in his short life where he faced huge treacheries , #Ashfaq was the one who #Bismil trusted as soul brother.

10 Scientific reasons behind why you should visit Temple.
Paying visit to temples are not only to get blessing but to get a calm and better mind set. The following scientific reasons are the actual purpose of visiting the temple according to the Hindu script.
1-Location and Structure of Temple:
Temples are found at a place where +ve energy is available abundantly. The idol of God is set in core center of the temple, known as “Garbhagriha” or “Moolasthanam”. It's the place where earth’s magnetic waves are discovered to be most extreme.
2-Removing Footwear Before Entering Temple:
In olden days, temples were built in such a way that floor at center of temple were good conductors of these +ve vibrations allowing them to pass through our feet to body. Hence it's necessary to walk bare footed while u enter temple.

Before the arrival of Islam, there had never been any bloodshed in the name of Dharma in this hallowed land of #SanatanDharma

Do #Hindu know that #Nehru invited trouble by ‘importing’ the alien concept of SECULARISM from Europe?

After the 4th & before the 18th century, the function of the European States was not only to control the worldly life of its subjects, but also to secure salvation in the other🌎, key to which was in Church’s possession!

The Church excommunicated those who violated rules,👇🏻

& closed gates of heaven for him.
It was State’s duty then to burn him alive/torture to death!

Jews were deprived of all citizenship rights & stigmatized as
KILLERS of Christ!

State was termed as
‘SECULAR ARM’ of Church,
State admitted its main function was to serve Church!

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.
