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.

Someone recently asked me why I, conducting a project on #epidemics, write a paper on #mantras in #Ayurveda. Here is the reason: Early South Asian medical compilations discuss epidemics and how to treat them. They suggest various countermeasures …
Besides more "medical" remedies they suggest also truthfulness, compassion, #mantras, offerings, fasting, atonement, veneration of gods, certain rituals etc. – measures belonging to the class of remedies "depending on the supernatural" (daivavyapāśraya).
In Ayurveda, remedies are usually differentiated into those "depending on logical principles" (yuktivyapāśraya) and those "depending on the supernatural". The former help to balance the bodily humors, the latter shall primarily check all kinds of exogenous harm. Image

Durante un tiempo me he dedicado a recopilar #tips sobre #escritura, que me gusta llamar #mantras. Ahora he decidido compartirlos a ver qué os parecen 😉. Abro hilo 👇🏻

1. «Cada 800 palabras haz que pase algo»
No recuerdo dónde leí este #consejo, pero es uno de mis preferidos. Si lo que buscas es #escribir #FicciónDeAltaVelocidad lo que debes hacer (creo yo) es no demorarte en las descripciones
2. «No escribas ni una sola línea que no contenga información útil»
Este #consejo es de #DashiellHammett y compañía. Hay que entenderlo en su contexto: un tipo de escritura #pulp, muy directa, sin florituras y sin ambiciones literarias donde prima el entretenimiento

Sanatan Dharma – A religion based on science

Ancient India, the land of Vedas and Upanishads. The land of culture, traditions, purity of thoughts and a religion that is based on science. Fasting, celebrations, festivals, even our daily routine is based on science. Image
Let me point a few things that we follow that are considered religious but are based on science. Our sages entwined science into religion in such a way that a common man can follow scientific rules to stay healthy.

Toran: Main entrance decorated with Mango, Neem and Ashoka Image
leaves that were put to purify the air. It served two purposes, decoration and purification. A normal daily ritual that was based on science.
