What are the stages of Bhakti?

A thread. 🧵

#bhakti #spirituality Image
Of the many paths to finding one's truth, the path of Bhakti is the most beautiful.

If one is to realise their truth through Bhakti, it requires
complete surrender.
As they say, Rome was not built in a day. The same goes for the path of Bhakti.

A bond between a Bhakt and His Bhagavān requires time to strengthen, mature and blossom.

Can mantra chanting bring financial abundance?

A thread. 🧵

#spirituality #mantra Image
There are many misconceptions about whether Mantras can bring about material benefits.
As per the Vedic view, Sadhana is not a substitute for the right Karma or action.

The results come from #Karma alone.

However, when hard work is backed by the right thinking, Sadhana can begin to work wonders.

Mantras: Busting Myths, Removing Confusion
There are many myths about mantras, and many confusions as well. Will attempt to Bust Myths, Dispel wrong notions prevalent since ages in a couple of threads. Here goes Thread I.
To understand about mantras lets first understand what is not a mantra. Common prayers are generally mistaken as mantras. Most common of these are Gayatri mantra, Mahamrityunjay mantra, Hare Krishna mantra and so on.
Let’s understand what these prayers mean. Gayatri Mantra simply means, O Almighty, grant me wisdom. Its a simple prayer to the Almighty to grant one wisdom. Mahamrityunjay mantra literally means, O Shiv, please grant me freedom from the fear of death.

माता गुरुतरा भूमेः पिता उच्चतरश्च खात्(The mother is weightier than the earth; the father is higher than the heaven)
#ParentsFirst-Ray of wisdom by #SriSri #Chandrashekara Bharathi Mahaswamiji:

HH asked a devotee,who sought initiation if he knew the dictates..1/3 Image
of the #Upanishads that one should consider mother as god first and then the father and then the guru. The devotee admitted the knowledge. HH asked him to come after following the first two dictates. The devotee then submitted that his parents were not kind to him and there..2/4
was no opportunity to serve them. Sri Jagadguru clarified that the dictate was addressed to him and not to his parents. He should strive hard to please them and gradually win their love. If he did not fulfil his obligation to his parents first, there was no use in 3/4

What is the logic behind reciting a 'mantra' 108 times, or say 500 times, in Hindu Scriptures?

Mantra recitation is not part of Hindu “scriptures” it is part of Hindu Spiritual practice.
Mantras are all recited 108 times or multiples thereof. But when keeping count only multiples of 100 are recorded.

The reason is 100 are recited for yourself and 8 for the benefit of all other beings. So the 8 and multiples thereof are not counted.
0 = shunya - total of all possibilities, 1 = jiva, and 8 = death. 1+0+8 = 9 which is a recurring number = samsara.

Why 8 for others? Does the 100 and 8 have particular significance or just random?

What is the science behind reciting mantras?

Some excellent answers have been given on the theory of mantras.
But I hold with the Mimamsaka idea that all knowledge has to have a PRACTICAL application - if it cannot be applied then it must be left aside - like the milk in the kshīra-sāgara upon which Viṣhṇu lies - it cannot be used on our cereal or to make cafe latte!
"Mantra” comes from the root — mananāt-trāyate iti mantra — man = mind; tra = protect.

This means the mantra is a centering device which protects your mind from random thinking!

Fin 2020, le Dr Angelo Antonio Fierro, coordinateur national de l'école de médecine anthroposophique en Italie, également médecin scolaire d’une école #Steiner, donnait une conférence sur le Covid-19, à la Maison des Arts Anthroposophiques, à Naples : 1/24
Durant ce qui s’apparente à un véritable prêche, il explique ce qu’est le #Covid et comment s’en prémunir.

L’acmé de son discours ? La lecture d’un #mantra de Rudolf Steiner accompagnée de gestes d’#eurythmie. Voici le cœur de son enseignement : 2/24
Selon lui, l’#épidémie (il n’y a pas de pandémie) de Covid-19 est “la maladie du matérialisme unidimentionnel“. Elle ne provient pas d’un virus mais d’une “pensée malade dans laquelle la #médecine a perdu son élan christique et s’est camouflée de manière unilatérale“. 3/24

1-A lot of #Spiritual #Sadhakas have asked me about #Mantra

The following is a little synopsis

A Mantra is a sacred word or phrase of spiritual significance and power.


2-Hymns; "that which saves the one who reflects"

(from the verb root ‘man’ = "to think")

Along with the #Brahmanas, as hymns Mantras constitute the ritual section of the #Veda (#KarmaKanda) (2/7)

3-Mantras are classified according to their metres

#Gayatri has 24 syllables with 9 subdivisions

#Usnik has 28 syllables with 7 subdivisions

#Prakrti has 40 syllables with 8 subdivisions

#Brhati has 36 syllables with 9 subdivisions. (3/7)

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)

#संस्कृतिबोध Image

The detention of men who sought safety on our shores is shocking. We must take action. The Government takes silence as acceptance.

A thread on how to TAKE ACTION to stand in solidarity who those detained, and demand the Government immediately release people from detention 👇
Drive past Mantra (Melb) & Kangaroo Point (Bris), honk your horn. Don't underestimate the impact of this

Call your local MP and urge them to add their voice to pressure the Government.

Join one of the daily in person actions at #mantra - 3pm weekdays, 5pm Sat/Sun
Contact Accor hotels (who own Mantra) and tell them you will not use their hotels until they stop accepting $ to detain people in hotels. There is no business in abuse.

Sign the petition for urgent release - people have been detained FOR OVER 7 years.

1-What is #Om and why does Om precede every #Mantra?

#Om or #Aum is the basis of all sounds

The universal symbol-word for #God.


2-Om of the #Vedas became the sacred word Hum of the Tibetans, Amin of the Muslims , and Amen of the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Jews and Christians.

Amen in Hebrew means "Sure", "Faithful”

3-Om is the all-pervading sound emanating from the Invisible Cosmic vibration (Holy Ghost of Christians)

..God in His aspect of Creator

..the “word" of the #Bible

..the voice of creation, testifying to the Divine Presence in every atom.

#Armut kann aber auch #rassistisch geprägt sein. Viele #POC bekommen keine Jobs, aufgrund ihrer Hautfarbe. (3/X)

So much #fear, #uncertainty & #confusion abounds in our #society & #community right now. It's #understandable, a #Human response.For over 40 years my #Motto, #CatchPhrase or #Mantra,if you will, has been & still is a lyric in a song by one of my favourite Rock Bands- Uriah Heep!
I've used the line to define a lot of the philosophy I believe in, from a #signature on a #profile to some #website subscription to a deeply felt, personal interpretation of whatever is happening in the present moment in time!
The song: #CircleOfHands,the line: #Todays are only #Yesterdays, #Tomorrow! It says to me that whatever is happening #Today,by #Tomorrow it will be cast into history & be a #Yesterday!Always gave me hope that whatever ails us now,we'll survive& look back& realize all things pass!
