"Um Brasileiro com S. De que adianta seu mundo ser feliz e farto se a sua volta há miséria e pobreza?"
"O conceito hindu de #unidade do universo e o conceito #jainista de #nãoviolência são mais urgentemente necessários hoje para salvar o planeta da sua destruição ecológica global."

#Pedagogy moment --

I'm teaching History of Hinduisms (plural intentional) this term. For the final paper, I give students 4 options.

This accords with my general emphasis that students should work on topics they care about. Interest (if possible, passion) are critical. #THREAD
Option 1. Close reading of a specific text

I give students a list of possible texts (from the Rig Veda forward). We read excerpts over the semester from most of the texts on the list. Students can return to a text that caught their eye, read more, and analyze.
Option 2. Traditional research paper

Pick a topic, any topic, at all related to Hinduism and write a paper about it. This can be a subject we covered in class that caught a student's attention. It can also be a subject that we didn't cover in the class (which is a lot, always).

#Hinduism in the #Afghan Frontier, a glorious history of resilience and heroism unparalleled in human history.

#Megathread #Hinduism #Afghanistan
Somewhere in the pages of history, a story of courage and bravery has remained unheard. Up in the high mountains of Afghanistan, a Hindu dynasty ruled for almost 200 years and watched over the ‘Khyber pass’ – the entry point to India. (2/n)
This family of brave kings fought the Islamic invasion from the west with all their might for over a hundred years. The banks of river Indus stands witness to their valiant defense of the motherland. Their story needs to be heard. Their sacrifice needs to be honored. (3/n)

Just completed reading "Know the #Hindu mind" by V.T. Rajshekar. Fabulous book detailing on why India is where it is today and why there is a need of socio-economic revolution...🔥🚜🌾 (Few excerpts below) #FarmersProtest #FarmersAgainstAtrocities
Note that author of the book himself is a Brahmin. And by "Hindu" he means the 15% of Indian people who follow the "Brahminical Social Order" for ruling over India through nepotism & 'modern oppression' of other people. 2/N
#FarmersProtest #FarmersAgainstAtrocities #TheHinduMind
"Moneyed People Respected" in India. The "means" don't matter. It can be by hook or crook or even crimes! Everything is justified. 3/N

TILAK:AN AGE OLD PRACTICE OF HINDUS

The beautiful Matribhumi of Bharat is the land of many religions &cultures but its Hinduism with which the world identifies this great Nation. Hinduism is the religion with science at its heart &its also a religion of many rituals &traditions.
Today we will talk about a very prominent and noticeable Mark on the foreheads of #Hindus called 'Tilak'. Tilaks are of different designs and colors. It symbolizes different meanings for different people such as religious expression, spiritual symbol, marital status etc.
Tilak is a very alluring design that is made in between the eyebrows. Vermilion, Chandan, Turmeric, Kumkum, Rice and Rice water, Vibhuti etc can all be used as Tilaks.
Why this particular spot is used for Tilak? Bcoz, it is mentioned as 'Ajna Chakra' in terms of yoga.

Science behind Gotra : (Genetics)

What is Gotra system ?
Why do we have this ? Why do we consider this to decide marriages ?
Why should sons carry the gotra of father, why not daughter ?
How does gotra of a daughter changes after she gets married ?
What is the logic ?
Infact this is an amazing genetic science we follow.
Let's see the science of genetics behind gotra systems.

The word GOTRA formed from two sanskrit words GAU (means cow) and Trahi (means shed).
Gotra means cowshed. Gotra is like cowshed protecting a particular male lineage. 👇
We identify our male lineage / gotra by considering to be descendants of the 8 great rishi (sapta rishi + bharadwaj rishi). All the other gotra evolved from these only. Let's see why human body has 23 pairs of chromosomes (one from father and one from mother)

Why Oils to be used for ligtening lamp as per Hinduism.?

Hinduism and many other faiths across the world recommend the use of lamps and light in prayers. The light symbolizes the absence of darkness, grief and sorrows. @mysql_sync

Cont 👇
The Oil Lamp, Diya, Deepa or Deepam is lit to bow down to knowledge and remove darkness from our homes. It is customary to light a lamp before starting any auspicious event or ceremony and is a constant fixture in the "Pooja" or holy room in every home in Bharat.

Cont 👇
By lighting lamps, the glow of the almighty is said to spread all over one's home and is an invitation to the gods to visit our homes. Its mentioned in Sri Agastya Maharishi's Bhrama Rahasyam: The vibration which emerges from the lamp will work as a 3 dimensional vastu protector

A COLOURFUL AND TRADITIONAL ART OF #Hinduism NAMED "RANGOLI"

Rangoli is an #Indian traditional or folk art, which is generally created on the floor on some festive occasions. The Indian scriptures and puranas can be attributed for the emergence of this creative rangoli art.
This ancient #Indian art is believed to be originated from the Indian state #Maharashtra, from where it get gradually dispersed in the rest of the country.

Rangoli is named differently in different Indian states like in #SouthIndia it is called #Kolam, Madana in #Rajasthan.
Chowkpurna is the name of rangoli in #NorthernIndia,Alpana in #Bengal, Aripana in #Bihar & so on.

According to the earliest disquisition or treatise on #Indian painting, named Chitra Lakshana, a king and his kingdom were extremely grieved on the death of the high priest's son.

Dear @SriSri Many of my friends attend your courses and devotees of you. They are disappointed seeing this video where you made claim on Muhammad being mentioned in ancient Hindu-Scriptures? Will you clarify?

You can't fool Hindus with your Secular-Guru façade!
Thanks @AOLSwamiji for responding but video-clip clearly quoting @SriSri>P Mohammed will be born in middle-east, bring peace etc and this was written in Ancient Hindu Text from thousands of year ago.

#SriSri MUST deny or clarify this. No Hindu-texts talk about Mohammed, Period!
Irrespective of how old/long the talk or whatever was context then, no Guru can justify #Mohammed by lying about Hindu-Scriptures. Our scriptures were from time when there was only #Hinduism.

@srisri ji will have to CLARIFY/DENY this ASAP!

Have a look on thoughts of some Western Philosophers about Hinduism..!!

1. Leo Tolstoy

Hindus and Hindutva will one day rule the world, because this is a combination of knowledge and wisdom.
@Anshulspiritual

👇👇
2. Herbert Wells

Until the effectiveness of Hindutva is restored, how many generations will suffer atrocities and life will be cut off, then one day the entire world will be attracted to it, on that day there will be Dilshad and on that day the world will be inhabited.

👇👇
3. Albert Einstein

I understand that through his intelligence and awareness he did that which the Jews could not do. In Hinduism it is the power that can lead to peace.

Why To Avoid Western Style Birthday Celebrations ?

We all agree that Birthday is a very special and auspicious day for all of us.

If it is so special then why do we celebrate it in inauspicious way?
@Anshulspiritual @mysql_sync
@Vedicphilosophy

👇👇
Birthdays celebrated as per tithi (a lunar day) are very pious, because we receive a lot of Chaitanya (Divine consciousness) on this day. This Chaitanya should be utilized to the fullest.
@nsbchd @khanna248 @nehasaini0204

👇👇
Let us understand few things which can be avoided during birthday celebrations & receive maximum blessings from Bhagawan:-

1. Never wish or celebrate birthdays at midnight, instead this should be done after sunrise. @Poornimachouha8 @Vaidyvoice

1/ Thread on short stories from puranas.

1. The Story of Surya Deva and Progeny

The Story of the seventh and the current Manu Vaiwaswata was indeed outstanding and eventful. Surya Deva who was also called Viwaswan married Vishwakarma’s daughter Sanjna Devi.
2/ But since Surya was too powerful and radiant, Sanjna was unable to withstand his heat and light and was so afraid of him that she could glance him with wobbly and unsteady eyes. The couple gave birth to Viwasvata Manu and Yama Dharma Raja.
3/ Yet, Sanjna Devi could not adjust and continued to suffer Surya’s heat; Surya got annoyed and cursed her that she would give birth to a River named Yamuna whose course was uneven and unsteady.

Why don't HINDUS actively convert others to HINDUISM ?

1. Hinduism is a culture. It is not an organized religion. It is a WAY OF LIFE.

2. Original name of Hinduism is SANATAN DHARMA.

3. Rishis, the sages of the ancient age, were actually scientists of that era.

👇👇
4. They gave more importance to truth than to any personal ego.

5. Rishis had no agenda whatsoever but to search after truth & educate everyone about the unwritten laws of the universe.
@Anshulspiritual @iSachinDeshwal @mysql_sync @VedicWisdom1

👇👇
6. They never ever wrote in any of the Hindu scriptures that Hinduism has the monopoly on truth or on God or on salvation.

7. They believed that when people search after truth, they automatically end up in Hinduism, since Hinduism is man's everlasting search after truth.

A thread on curriculum design in RE, following today’s discussion on @BBCR4Sunday about #Hinduism in RE. A Hindu organisation has raised concerns about the quantity & quality of teaching about Hindu Dharma in schools. This thread doesn’t discuss any particular belief system. 1/
In this thread I’m asking what happens if any & all belief systems exert influence over the school RE curriculum - what then? 2/ @NATREupdate @reonline_tweets @ReformingRE @areiac @aulretweets @NASACRE @goochkt @RE_McGEE @RECouncil @CommissionOnRE
Currently the law allows some religion & belief groups a say in shaping the local syllabus for RE. This is a corrupting influence on the curriculum for four reasons: time, design, terminology, & false positivity. I’ll say a quick word about each reason. 3/
