#Virat war at #Matsya is the MOST underplayed battle in the #Mahabharatha. NO thanks to StarPlus #Mahabharat for destroying it entirely, with not ONE arrow fired. In reality, #Arjuna BULLDOZED the entire Kaurava army with ALL it stalwarts. This is what happened
(#BORI text)
- Chief of cowherds runs to Uttara, complains about Kurus killing cowherds and capturing cows
- Uttara repeatedly compares himself with Arjuna, irritating Draupadi
- She says Brihannala was Arjuna’s charioteer at Khandava
- Uttara sends his sister to fetch Brihannala
-At the battlefield, Uttara sees the Kuru army and balks
-Brihannala refuses to turn back and Uttara jumps off and flees
-Brihannala bundles him back saying she will fight
- They reach the sami tree where the weapons are stashed, Brihannala asks Uttara to get them down

A story of miracles of ANCIENT INDIAN medicines!!!

In the pic is 92 yrs old Dr CP Mathew, 👇a leading oncologist, who unlearnt modern medicine to switch to combination of Siddha, Ayurvedic and other traditional remedies, to cure end stage cancer patients.
2/3 According to the report in WEEK— the turning point in his life came in 1983 when he learnt that a terminally ill cancer patient who had been sent home to die not only survived but thrived with a SIDDHA medicine given by a 'lada vaidyan', a wandering QUACK to modern eyes.
3/3 The oncologist humbly volunteered to be disciple of LADA VAIDYAN and learnt medicine at his feet. And then began his journey to cure CANCER patients with natural medicines. Dr CP Mathew passed away few days bck, was cremated by HINDU rituals.

1/4 Sanatanis are being called to return to the original version of SANATANA.

Terr0rism & Sanatana— a thread!

There used to be a tradition of offering a #BALI to #Kaali or Durga devi before our soldiers went to WAR.

LOGIC: A soldier should not fear BLOOD
2/4 In Devi Mahatmyam: Durga Devi slains Asur called Shumbha and Kaali Devi slains Asur #RAKTABEEJ, who had a boon
that whenever a drop of his blood fell on the ground, a duplicate of him would be born at that spot— pretty much defines WAVES of #terr0rism that INDIA faces today.
3/4 Somewhere in 18th century and late 19th century 2 #Bengalis popularised devotional/Bhakti concept of Kaali.
I’m not sure if this helped us coz Sanatanis were slowly gravitating towards a pacified version of War-Goddesses.

When you lose the vigour to fight, the enemy wins!

Indians hv been psychologically tamed to be believe India CAN NOT #expand it’s territory.

Historians say— we NEVER attacked anyone. Really?

~India is where martial arts like #Kalarippayattu originated, that gave birth to KARATE.
~#Mahabharat & #Ramayan are abt WARS
2/2 ~Afghan to South East Asia, was under control of Indian rulers once.

~Our Devi & Devtas are depicted with weapons.

Our soldiers never PLUNDERed or r@ped. We had DISCIPLINED soldiers!!! Bt that doesn’t mean we did not believe in EXPANDing our territory.
I would love to know opinion of others on this topic.

The 28th Nakshatra - Abhijit

1/n
There is also a nakshatra called #Abhijit that was part of the original #nakshatra mandala. Abhijit is 4°13'2o" long and is placed between 6°4o' and io°53'2o" #Capricorn and it was the most auspicious nakshatra during the ancient times. Image

It was such a powerful nakshatra that if an important activity began when the #Moon was in Abhijit nakshatra, it guaranteed unparalleled success. During the #Mahabharat, Shree Krishna came to know that Duryodhana was planning to start a war with five Pandav brothers at a

time when the Moon was in Abhijit. He was aware of the power of the Abhijit. The Kauravas were planning to begin Mahabharat when it was #Amavasya tithi (New Moon) and the Moon was in Abhijit nakshatra; this day would be an extremely potent one to bring a successful outcome.

Il Detachment Makes Us Hardhearted & Attachment Doesn't ll

Is it True ?

Sometimes people think “If I become detached, I will become hardhearted.!! "

However, what makes us hardhearted is not detachment, but its opposite: attachment.
When we become attached to something, we experience intense emotions in relation with that object. But those very emotions can impel us towards unbecoming, immoral and hurtful actions, especially towards those whom we see as threats to our attachment.
At the *Bhagavad-Gita's* ~ Dhritarashtra enquires: "On the battlefield of Kurukshetra, what did my people and the Pandavas do?"

*The question reveals his bias* – the Pandavas too were his people, being his nephews....(but he was not concerned for them )...

Propaganda and myth around #Mahabharat that it is just a story ,
While this #Thread gives
#LogicalPoints For Those Who Thinks Mahabharata Is Not Real
#RT

1. It has been written in the epic from time to time that Mahabharata is an “Itihasa” which exclusively means “thus occurred”
2. It is mentioned in Aadiparva, Adhyaya 62 that the records of the Bharat-Dynasty are recorded in the Mahabharata.
Context - A number of dynasties with their long lineage of kings (more than 50 from Manu) have been presented in the work.
If it were just fiction, 4-5 kings would have sufficed to build the story on.

3.. Read the description of Kaliyuga as mentioned in Mahabharata.

Whatever Krishna said tallies with creepy, mysterious accurateness with modern life as it exists today.

#Hinduism through the evil eyes of #LeftHistorians.

First of all, there is no such religion as #Hinduism. This name was coined by Britishers.

In this Thread, I’ve tried to bust the lies of #Communist Historians to malign the Sanatana Dharma using facts and evidences.

(1/21) ImageImage
🔸Our philosophy is 5000+ years old and is about the universal truth - Sanatana Dharma that all mankind should aspire for.

It is the oldest religion in the World.

The #Sanatanis have never been a proselytising race. #PanditNehru went on record to admit this.

(2/21)
It has existed from Ancient times, even before the advent of proselytising religions (#Buddhism, #Christianity and #Islam).

Unfortunately, we have always been taught the #Left version of History. which has always been Delhi-centric and anti-Sanatani.

Just arrived: a coffee table book on the #Mahabharat - it has paintings by Italian artist Giampaolo Tomassetti depicting various scenes from the epic. It is, to put it mildly, stunning. @gchikermane @monikahalan @AmritaNarlikar @ArunaNarlikar @kabeermenon @smitabarooah ImageImageImageImage
One of my favourite paintings is the one of Krishna punishing Shishupala after the latter commits his 101st offence. This is as good a time as any to re-plug this brilliant piece by @gchikermane on the Shishupala doctrine: orfonline.org/expert-speak/t… Image

Benefits of chanting Vishnu Sahasranamam

#Hinduism, some call it a sect, some call is mysticism, some call it a religion but for us it is a way of life. Being Hindu is not just a religion but it’s a way of life narrated by The God himself through Vedas and sages through. Image
2. various scriptures. The only religion soft enough where you can choose a God or deity to worship and follow the various ways to live your life. The only thing Hinduism asks is your complete devotion to the deity of your own choosing. There are many ways to keep your mind
3. and body healthy. Yoga, Way of Living, Chanting of Mantras and Shlokas, etc. Everything has been given a set of procedures and a way to perform. Every Shlok and Mantra produces a different form of vibration or energy and it affects a different aspect of body and mind.

This is a beautiful story from the Mahabharat. A story of faith and surrender, of destiny. This incident happened when legions of troops from all over were being mobilized to fight one of the bloodiest battles in the history of India.
#Mahabharat
#TheSparrow
#Faith
The battlefield of Kurukshetra was being prepared to facilitate movement of mammoth armies with large cavalries. Areas were marked for rival camps. Huge bundles of wood were organized to cook food for a sea of army.
Trees were being felled by elephants to clear the ground. On one such tree lived a sparrow, a mother of four young ones. As the tree was knocked down, her nest landed on the ground along with her offspring, too young to fly, miraculously unharmed.

3. If you decide to act then see the act to its completion or else the act will be the end of you.The eventual result determines whether the act was right or wrong.
