My #KashmirFiles movie & theater experience yesterday
☄After Uri I am watching an Indian Movie!
☄Superbly sequenced & lot of thought has gone into lining up incidents in a apt way
I was speechless & dumbstruck at the horrific k!lling & torture our #Hindus in Kashmir faced
in Jan 1990
☄Let's henceforth call it as #Hindugenocide not Exodus!😞
☄My daughter,at one point of time became too emotional & started giving gallies & countering statements-her mind voice was coming out & I had to silence her !
Imagine in #Chennai during
the movie - people shouted #Jaihind & #BharatMataKiJai
But I see they are not #Tamizhians ofcourse!
☄People who get depressed easily should not watch! The k!lling of character sharada was horrendous & we closed our eyes!

As the guru sat in lotus posture on a wooden bench with a screen behind him, Ganga Dhar Babu arrived with his equipment. Taking every precaution for success, he greedily exposed twelve plates. On each one he soon found the imprint of the wooden bench
and screen, but once again the master’s form was missing.
With tears and shattered pride, Ganga Dhar Babu sought out his guru. It was many hours before Lahiri Mahasaya broke his silence with a pregnant comment:

“I am Spirit. Can your camera reflect the omnipresent

“I see it cannot! But, Holy Sir, I lovingly desire a picture of your bodily temple. My vision has been narrow; until today I did not realize that in you the Spirit fully dwells.”

“Come, then, tomorrow morning. I will pose for you.”

1/n #Heliodorus pillar, erected at Besnagar around 2.134 kybp (113 BCE).

It was raised by Heliodorus, an ambassador of the Indo-#Greek king Antialcidas from #Taxila.

He called it the Garuda Pillar, in honor of Vāsudeva #Vishnu (#Krishna )
2/n The interpretation of #Heliodorus stambha is:

"it symbolizes joining earth, space and swarg, thereby bringing connotation the "cosmic axis" by expressing the cosmic totality of the Vāsudeva, Supreme Deity. "

Source: Approaches to Iconology, Vol 4-6, Hans Gerhard Kippenberg
3/n The inscriptions of #Heliodorus stambha is very interesting written in Brahmi script (Sunga period), language being Central-western epigraphic Prakrit, with Sanskritized spellings (Richard Solomon).

It praises Vāsudeva, the God of Gods & has verse from Mahabharata.

1/n #SadarPranam to the Ishvara within you @Mufti_Yasir

I observed the whole video & I'm in fact sorry to say that #suchwala made you a joke in front of all.

Explained in this thread.
What is so big deal in he accepting the existence of Supreme Being with qualities?
2/n Mufti @Mufti_Yasir says that few call that supreme being "Ishvara, Bhagwan", few call him, "Allah" etc.

Then do you approve of this:
lā ʾilāha ʾillā -#Ishvara or lā ʾilāha ʾillā -#Yahweh or lā ʾilāha ʾillā -#Krishna ?
3/n Mufti Sahab says, once Vedas was revealed by the supreme being and then was also Gita by him sometime and so on an on coming till the Qur'an?

Gita doesn't goes against Vedas. Upanishads are extension of Vedas. Ramayana talks of whole world, why Qur'an fails to do so?

आपल्या आधीच्या सात अपत्यांसारखं ह्याला देखील तो नीच कंस मारून टाकणार का? २+
नको तो विचारच नको! आता ही कुडी फक्त त्याच्या भक्तीसाठी खर्च करायची! त्याला जे उचित वाटेल ते तो करेल. दिवस सरला! सकाळ पासून पावसाने जोर धरला. गोरज मुहूर्तावर त्याला अजून उधाण आलं! एवढा धुवांधार पाऊस की अगदी दोन हातावरच काही दिसत नव्हतं! मधेच सोसाट्याचा वारा सुटायचा! ३+

Why Is Krishna Blue in Color?

While fighting the snake,Krishna was exposed to the snake's venom that made his skin blue in colour. However, many also believe that within Krishna there lay a cosmic strength that is invisible to mortal eyes. Hence, his body appears blue in colour. Image
Another reason by-
Sadhguru explains Krishna's “blue magic”

Blue is the color of all-inclusiveness. You will see in the existence, anything that is vast and beyond your perception generally tends to be blue, whether it is the ocean or the sky. Image
Anything which is larger than your perception tends to be blue because blue is the basis of all-inclusiveness. It is based on this that so many gods in India are shown as blue-skinned. #Shiva has a blue skin, #Krishna has a blue skin, #Rama has a blue skin.

1/5 Finally #RamayanaMasam ( month of Ramayan) is here. It’s a month dedicated to reading Ramayan in every house in #Kerala. Hindus visit 4 temples belonging to Shri Ram & his 3 brothers, LAXMAN, BHARAT & SHATRUGHAN, each located at separate places,which we are expected to visit.
2/5 #RamayanaMasam is also associated with heavy rainfall, when people can not go out of homes. Reading Ramayan during worst period of the year keeps one distracted from negative thoughts. In pic: Thriprayar Shri Rama temple. 👇 Unlike temples in rest of South India, temples of
3/5 Kerala are mostly made of wooden roof and need renovation in every few years. Huge stone temples like Padmanabhawamy temple in Thiruvanthapuram are rare. This is largely due to the weather of Kerala. Ramayana masam is also associated with increasing body immunity.

Life Lessons From Krishna

Krishna was one of the most influential figures in human history. Certainly, he was one of the most influential figures in India. Through his stories and teachings, Indian spirituality took a stronger tone of devotion and love.
At the heart of it, his teachings were simple and easy to grasp- which is perhaps why they’re still so popular today.

1) Everything happens for a reason

Krishna described again and again that the creator of the world is always watching us- hence you don’t need to waste
your time lamenting over the past or getting overly anxious about the future. Instead, keep your mind in the moment and what you wish to achieve.

2) Value love

Since god is unconditional love, to love others is to serve god in some way. Krishna exemplified this by loving

1-Swami #Sivananda used to say this about #Mantra and #Japa #Sadhana

“Do not bother yourself about #Matra, #Para and #Pashyanti, etc.

Do #Japa of your #Ishta #Mantra mentally with its meaning and right #Bhava.

You will realize the spiritual benefits. (1/13)

2-Why do you waste your time counting the pebbles on the bank?

Take a dip immediately in the Ganges and enjoy the bath” (2/13)

3-All Mantras have equal potency or power.

It is not quite accurate to say that

... Om Namo Narayanaya is superior Om Namah Shivaya or Radhesyam or Sri Ram, and so on. (3/13)

Suit to claim 'Krishna Janmabhoomi'

Suit filed before a #Mathura civil court seeks to reclaim #KrishnaJanmabhoomi in Mathura

The suit, filed by Vishnu Jain seeks reclamation of 13.37 acre land after declaring that the 1968 compromise deed was not binding @vishnujain3
The suit states that "every
inch of land of Katra Keshav Dev is sacred for the devotees of Lord
Shree Krishna and Hindu community."

Suit blames #Aurangazeb, the Mughal ruler, for demolishing the Krishna temple in Mathura:

"Aurangzeb ruled over the
country he being
staunch follower of Islam issued orders for demolition of temple
standing at birth place of Lord Shree Krishna at Katra Keshav Dev in 1669-70"

1-Today we shall continue to dive deeper into the aspects of #Past #Life #Astrology.

And the very first word that comes to mind is #Karma.

#Karma is actually a poorly understood term.

Most people think of Karma and might think of punishment and retribution. (1/25)
2-The fact is Karma is like a #Cosmic, ongoing, Instruction Design of God.

Karma is rather concerned with #Evolution and #Growth.

@BabaRamDass used to often say, “May be the #Law of #Karma itself is #God” (2/25)

3-Just like Ether, Karma is all-embracing and has a myriad of #Manifestations

The #Cosmos operates at different levels of #Karma –from Personal Karma to the Karma of entire nations or communities. (3/25)

Radha Rani - The Pranatma Of Shree Krishna


Shree Krishna Says, “I am never separated from Radha. Isolation is my favorite because of the privacy I get, during which I can be with Radha. She is always with me even when I am alone. In challenging times, she reinforces me, Image
in frightful conditions, she holds me back from crippling. She is my life force, always re-fueling energy in me. How can I be alone, when in all circumstances she walks with me, holding my hand?”

Beautiful Radha Rani-

radiant, fair face just like a luminous full moon in the clear night sky. Her glance—a combination of dark iris and eyelash, marked with sharp lines of lampblack, and mascara and her long arched eyebrows—are capable of piercing one’s heart more effectively than hundreds of Image
