1-Why Is the #Tulsi Plant Considered #Sacred and so central to #Sanatana Dharma?

Tulsi has been revered in India for as long as man has been around.

In every #Hindu home a Tulsi plant holds great importance (1/25)


2-In all those old, #Traditional houses the Tulsi plant used to be grown in the centre of the house,

..on an altar-like structure called tulsi chaura. (2/25)


3-Every #Hindu #Puja ceremony creates what they call #Panchamrita

..and Tulsi leaves are an essential ingredient of panchamrita

.Thread on Krishna🙏
@Itishree001 @IndiaArtHistory
Krishna on Kaliyug :-
Yudhistra was ruling Hastinapur righteously after the Kurukshetra war.
One day, Krishna visited Hastinapur. Yudhistra was in the court and the four other Pandavas were having conversation with Krishna.
“Krishna, now dharma is dominant. How will Kaliyug be?
Will Dharma be sustained there from start? How will the life of people be affected in Kaliyug without Dharma?”-asked Arjuna.
“Oh, it’s not that easy to explain.
Better let me demonstrate to you all about the life of people in Kaliyug.”-saying so, Krishna took a bow and stringed four arrows and shot them in four different directions.
“Now, each of you go and bring back one arrow to me.”- Krishna smiled and ordered the Pandavas.

#Sadhguru has most of India's self-proclaimed #liberals with their underwear twisted when he said he is far more #leftist than most. Recently Mr TM #Krishna launched into a media rant protesting this but with zero factual basis. (1/n)

Social Upliftment - Check
Individual Empowerment - Check
Promoting Gender & Social Equality - Check
Providing Free Education & Healthcare - Check
Erasing Social Inequalities - Check

If all these does not qualify Sadhguru as a leftist, I do not know what will! (2/n)
Here is my post on why I consider India's spiritual gurus as the true #leftists and why TM Krishna is completely wrong.

Unlike Mr TM Krishna, I am presenting only logical arguments without resorting to name calling or abuse. (3/n)

Sanatan Dharma and our ancient hindu texts are an epitome of knowledge. We shall not be sharing facts today but will rather do scientific analysis. This will show progressive and highly advance nature of society and our Sanatan Dharma.(1/18) Image
There will not be any chronology but basic facts from history and their scientific analysis.
Before starting we will remember the fact that anything which is not seen cannot be imagined.(2/18)
Lets take for an example the space, less than 0.1% of the population has been to space but most of us can easily imagine how it looks like. Then you may ask we have not seen the space how can we imagine it as per the premise.(3/18)

Life lessons from our Puranas..
ಮಾಡರ್ನ್ ಅಧ್ಯಾತ್ಮ!

ಭಗವಾನ್ ಶ್ರೀಕೃಷ್ಣನ ಅಂತ್ಯದ ಕಥೆ ಎಲ್ಲರಿಗೂ ತಿಳಿದೇ ಇದೆ. ಆದ್ರೂ ಅದನ್ನ ಚುಟುಕಾಗಿ ಹೇಳ್ತೇನೆ

ಅತಿಯಾದರೆ ಅಮೃತವೂ ವಿಷವೇ..
ಮಹಾಭಾರತದ ಕೊನೆಯಲ್ಲಿ, ತನ್ನ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಮಕ್ಕಳನ್ನು ಕಳೆದುಕೊಂಡ ದುಃಖ ಹಾಗೂ ಸಿಟ್ಟಲ್ಲಿದ್ದ ಗಾಂಧಾರಿಯ ಶ್ರೀಕೃಷ್ಣನನ್ನು ಕಾರಣಕರ್ತ ನಾಗಿಸಿ
ಅವನಿಗೆ ಶಾಪಿಸುತ್ತಾಳೆ "36 ವರ್ಷಗಳ ನಂತರ ನೀನು ನಿನ್ನ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಬಂಧುಗಳನ್ನು ಕಳೆದುಕೊಳ್ಳುವಂತಾಗಲಿ. ನಿನ್ನ ಯದುಕುಲವು ತಮ್ಮಲ್ಲೇ ಕಚ್ಚಾಡಿ ಕೊನೆಗೊಳ್ಳಲಿ. ನೀನು ಒಂಟಿಯಾಗಿ ಕಾಡಲ್ಲಿ ಮೃಗದಂತೆ ಮರಣ ಹೊಂದುವತಾಗಲಿ." (Refer ಮೌಸಲ parva).
ಕೃಷ್ಣನು ಅವಳನ್ನು ಅಪ್ಪಿ, ಸಾಂತ್ವನ ಮಾಡಿ, ಖುಷಿಯಿಂದ ಈ ಶಾಪವನ್ನು ಒಪ್ಪುತ್ತಾನೆ.
ಇದೇನು ಕೃಷ್ಣನಿಗೆ ತಿಳಿಯದೆ ಇದ್ದದ್ದಲ್ಲ. ಮಹಾಭಾರತದ ನಂತರ ತನ್ನ ಜನರು ಅಹಂಕಾರ ಭರಿತರಾಗಿ, ನೈತಿಕತೆ ಮರೆತು ದಾರಿ ತಪ್ಪಿ ಒಂದು Tipping point ಬಂದಾಗ- ಅವರೂ ಕೊನೆಗೊಳ್ಳುವುದು ಅವರ ಕರ್ಮ. ಇದನ್ನು ಅರಿತ ಕೃಷ್ಣ ಪರಮಾತ್ಮ ಸುಮ್ಮನೆ ಇರುತ್ತಾನೆ.

ಸಾಂಬ ಪ್ರಸಂಗ:
ಇದೆಲ್ಲಾ ಕಳೆದು, ಒಂದು ದಿನ ವಿಶ್ವಾಮಿತ್ರ, ವಸಿಷ್ಠ, ದೂರ್ವಾಸ, ನಾರದ ಮುನಿ

Why is #Ramayan considered mythology by our own people when we have Ram Setu which is man made. 1. Image
As per the Institute for Scientific Research on Vedas (I-SERVE), planetarium software has ascertained the birth of Lord Rama as 10th January 5114 BC in Ayodhya. 
Which matches time given in Valmiki Ramayana. Image
our comprehension, as myths is the biggest disservice that we do to our own history. Image

Ashwatthama became very angry when his father Dronacharya was killed in the Mahabharata war.

He left a very terrible weapon "Narayana Astra" on the Pandava army.

Nobody could retaliate it. It used to fire people and immediately destroy those who have weapons in their hands
and are seen trying to fight.

Lord Shri Krishna ordered the army to leave their weapons and keep folding hands silently. And said do not even bring the idea of ​​war to mind, it also destroys them.

Narayan Astra slowly calmed down when his time expired.
In this way, the Pandava army was protected.

Justify this episode?

Everywhere the battle does not succeed. To avoid the wrath of nature, we should also leave all the work for some time, silently folded hands, keep a good mind in mind and stay in one place.

#Udupi – An Idol to Rekindle Memories

In the south west coast of India, in the town of Udupi, #Krishna continues to give us a glimpse of His childhood form through an idol that He had gifted to Rukmini, His wife more than 5100 years ago.
As legends tell, inorder to satisfy His mother Devaki’s desire to relive the moments of His childhood, #Krishna had an idol sculpted out of Saligrama stone by Vishwakarma, the architect. This idol was later given to Rukmini.
After #Krishna’s and Rukmini’s times, this idol in Dwaraka got buried & covered in the sand of that region called Gopichandan.

Was #Jesus based on the Hindu #god #Krishna?
Um, #NO, and here is why.
According to Hinduism, Krishna is an Avatar, or incarnation, of the Hindu God Vishnu. He was one of several (Including Rama, Kalkin (aka Kalki) and even Buddha). He lived a heroic life, teaming up with another Hindu hero named Arjuna (who was a demigod). Krishna’s cult dates back
around the 5th century BC (roughly around the time of Buddha himself). He is also a god.
Was he the basis for Christ?

Lift yourself by yourself

Powerful Statement from Krishna

At times when you feel depressed and low, remember, "Only You Can Lift or elevate from that stage"
Krishna Clearly states it is left to you to identify yourself as your best friend as much as your worst enemy.

Now How to elevate yourself ?

By knowing the nature of the self which is unborn, eternal, which is state of infinite bliss and
the self in you is the same which exists in all and the self in all is the same which exists in you.

By doing good,

Eg: suppose if one wants to elevate himself from poverty, best solution is to help other people who are struggling more than you in poverty.

Karma Yoga Simplified


Remember the self within you is the same in all, so by doing good.. you are helping yourself.
While doing good, just act as an service to GOD/Atman (or whatever name you like to give it). Leave the results to nature to manifest it will duly do justice to you.

It is an easiest path in purifying d mind from agitations,In other words it removes the dirt prevailing in d mind
Results of practicing Karma Yoga for a prolonged period is experience of infinite inner bliss, joy and happiness which cannot be purchased by any amount of money.

Note : Inner Joy is Real Happiness...

Lifestyle - Middle Path - Message from the Gita

Lets take Sleeping as Example:

Sleeping is a important main component when it comes to consumption of 24 hours of the day..
Nowadays many people ignore/reduce the number of hours sleep due to many reasons like office pressure,workloads etc without realizing that it is a predominant activity of our well being.
Another side is the class of people like sleeping to the extreme that is even after they wake up they again go to sleep. This also have adverse effect on the body and also the mind.

What do I have to do now??? Here is the message from the Gita

Simple, Remember at all times you are atman not the body, you are that without which this body is mere matter.
The self in you is the same which exists in all. The Nature of that self is infinite Bliss & bliss alone. (Spare atleast few minutes daily to contemplate on this knowledge).

So Think Good, Speak Good, Do Good, Never Hurt anyone by thoughts, words, worst is hurting physically.
Do Good by Shunning attachment to fruit of actions, else you will have fear & anger. (Every action has definitely a result, allow it to flow to you at ease)

Have moderation in Food & Sleep, which is middle path. ( Anything in Extra is always a problem)

Secret to Peace of Mind at all times!

Only Two Factors which disturb the Limitless Peace Prevalent within each one of us. They are Fear and Anger.

Now Let's Handle Both of them individually.
1) Fear
When Does 'Fear' manifest within us? Who does it even come to us even without our knowledge or permission within us? Keep this Questions in mind for better understanding.
Let's say you have an intimate 'object' which you love it, in ur possession with full control at ur disposal,You want this 'object' to stay as it is with you forever. This Feel is called Attachment.But unfortunately there is an threat of losing it& u start to worry about it

Secret Of Action

Why Krishna advised us, "To Do your Duty without the desire for fruits of such actions.."

It's Popular Misunderstanding
The real intent of this advise from Krishna has strong underlying factor on focus of action.

Every action has an end result, that's the law of the nature. Given this reality, the quality outcome of an action will depend on the quality of work skills/effort behind such action.
So the quality of effort behind every activity will determine the fruits of such activity.

It's in this context, Krishna advised Arjuna don't focus on the fruits of an action while performing/undertaking the action...

Develop this Attitude for Everlasting Experience of Peace/Bliss...

Mind in Quietude is a Sign of Happiness due to Detachments
Mind in Agitation is a Sign of Weakness/Sin due to Attachments
Thats why Krishna advises to treat Victory/Defeat, Pain/Pleasure, Gain/Loss as one and the same...

(Meaning One Success Jumping in the Air, & One Failure completely dejected/depressed, Krishna says Maintain Balance ie middle path)

With this attitude fight your battle of life meaning your life's challenges... Dont get disappointed by failures understanding this is a part of life.

Dont get swayed away by Likes & Dislikes.. Rise above them..

Swami Chinmayananda Beautifully explains this topic (Gita Chp 3 v33)
It is universal law that everyone has their own likes & dislikes... It is natural you can't avoid it..

Every one of us come into the world and first we divide the world into two.. things that I like and things I hate..

#gita #Krishna
All your life autobiography is running away from what you don't like and run towards, what you like.. is it not?

Our Inner Nature of the Atman/Self is Infinite Happiness... It is for this reason we seek happiness in everything we pursue.. the end result of any activity we undertake with one intent which is to experience happiness..
Unfortunately we ignore this reality of the self and seek happiness in the external world of objects(objects can be thing/person/emotion) which only gives us finite/momentary happiness...

#PearlsFromGita Series
#Hare #Krishna #HariOm #BhagavadGita
By seeking happiness in the outer world of objects without your knowledge you're making the "self/atman" who is your King of all happiness "poorer.." Awake, Arise witness the real & unreal..
