“PERIOD PARTY” is the new fad in west.

WOW! They r catching up to our traditions.

Since eons in south India we hv been celebrating RITUSHUDDHI (ceremony to celebrate menarche) when the young girl is gifted SAREE & waist-let.
FERTILITY was always celebrated in #Sanatana. 👍 Image
2/3 In last one decade these celebrations have reduced as it is not considered PROGRESSIVE to celebrate female fertility anymore. Western media wont spare a chance to rub it into INDIANS that some call it ASHUDH(impure) But they will never speak about KAMAKHYA temple where we… Image
…celebrate a bleeding Goddess.🙏
What I fear most is— someday westerners will become more Sanatani than Sanatanis themselves and they will put a western stamp on it.
Like the war on TURMERIC patent.

B4 we lose our inheritance— lets begin exploring SANATANA deeper. 😊

#Vaisakha #Sukla #Chaturdasi is reckoned as Sri #Nrusimha Jayanthi the day Bhagawan #Vishnu manifested in a very ferocious, rare, unique and fascinating form #NARASIMHA;

Specific purpose of this avathara was,

protection of his devotee #PraHlada from his demon father #Hiranyakasipa;

#establish a point & to make true the words of his devotee " existence (#omnipresent) of God everywhere"

> Prahlada’s episode proves that, God is #Bhaktavatsala; +
To kill the demon Hiranyakasipa, Lord Vishnu had to take this rare form in order to counteract/provide an antidote to the boons Hiranyakasipa had.

The boons were; ++

CLAIM: #Rama is not known/ worshipped in Tamil Nadu (#Jothimani Congress MP)

REALITY: Incorrect, likely untrue and deliberate disinformation. Here is why👇

Thread on references to rāma/#rAmAyaNa in Tamil literature till 1000 CE prior to kamban (12-13th C CE)

#TamilNadu #Tamil
Puṟanāṉūṟu (5th C CE or earlier)
notes rAma, sIta & monkeys (vAnara). It refers to sIta’s abduction by the rAkShasa & her dropping jewels

கடுந்தெறல் இராமன் உடன்புணர் சீதையை
வலித்தகை அரக்கன் வெளவிய ஞான்றை
நிலஞ்சேர் மதர் அணி கண்ட குரங்கின்
செம்முகப் பெருங்கிளை

#puRanAnURu 378
aganaṉūṟu refers to the victorious rAma in dhanuShkOTi, studying vedas under a banyan tree

வென் வேற் கவுரியர் தொல் முது கோடி
முழங்கு இரும் பௌவம் இரங்கும் முன் துறை,
வெல்போர் இராமன் அரு மறைக்கு அவித்த     15
பல் வீழ் ஆலம் போல,
ஒலி அவிந்தன்று, இவ் அழுங்கல் ஊரே.

Science in Sanatana!

Why did Bhagwan #Shiv not destroy poison, HALAHALAM and why did he choose to drink and keep it in original form in his throat?

LAW of conservation of MASS and BODY cycles simplified! 😊 In #Sanatana stories help simplify universe’s functioning. Image
2/3 The 4 chakras below throat chakra each represent Earth, water, Fire and Air. If the poision was allowed to go below throat chakra, OR if it was allowed to be buried in soil, poured into sea or destroyed in Air, then it would hv polluted the planet. Inside & outside! Image

Shiv ji knew matter can neither be created or destroyed— what is today called law of conservation of mass. Hence he decided to keep the poison in his throat in it’s original form.

Stories of Puran are not merely stories but pearls of wisdom. Image

1/2 From now let us call it by its original name—DHRUV STAMBH (Sanskrit) & not Qutub Minar (Urdu). The structure is aligned to North Star-Dhruv. It is also called VISHNU Stambh. And hold ur breath—it’s associated with HEART CHAKRA/Green LOTUS. 😊 Let me explain. @LostTemple7
2/3 In Hinduism, Dhruv is Vishnu Bhakt & Vishnu Bhagwan is associated with AIR & so is the heart chakra. In short, this place ws used not jst to study stars but also the WIND.Btw Vishnu equivalent Egyptian God is also associated with Air. #Sanatana ws spread across the globe.😊🙏
3/3 U’ll find many LOTUS symbols inside QM/Dhruv Stambh—it represents heart chakra—Green Lotus with 12 petals. Y 12? The astrological signs when put together form a lotus. Check the pic👇—the black band represents the outer wall of Dhruv Stambh. Top view of the tower is a flower.

Video of #Sabrimala, reopening.
~2018,Nov—v wr fought to protect Sabrimala.
~2019,Nov—#Ayodhya verdict happened.
~2020–ppl involved in desecrating the temple r incarcerated.

I’ve lots more to say bt we believe Sri Ayappa Swami controls Saturn/lord of #Karma so let it be. 😊
In Kerala, anyone with shani (Saturn) dasha is advised to visit Ayappa temples & consume sesame seeds (hs iron & calcium). Apparently, Saturn dasha impacts calcium level jn our body, that’s why its associated with Bones & Teeth. Interesting nooh?
Correction: v fought* to protect.

Have u ever wondered y does India remain poor, despite the fact, in #Sanatana v offer poojas to Goddess of wealth-- LAXMI and v hv rituals to "charge" wealth?

Problem is most of the ppl fear manifesting wealth & believe that wealth is for the greedy. Let me burst few myths.
No, Santana doesn't say wealth is bad & that a spiritual person can't b RICH.

Ever wondered y do shops hv pictures of Ganesha & Laxmi at their entrances
y on Diwali, v offer pooja to Ganesha (deity who destroys troubles) & LAXMI (deity of wealth)?
Ideally we should be using Ganesha, Laxmi & Saraswati devi's pictures.
This so bcoz:
Saraswati~ represents wisdom
Ganesha~ represents new beginnings
Laxmi~ represents WEALTH.

We need wisdom to earn wealth.
WISDOM & WEALTH go hand in hand.

1-Today is the #Birth #Anniversary of quite possibly the most interesting #God in the #Sanatana #Pantheon - #Ganehsa!

For #AyurvedicAstrology and #VedicAstrology #Tradition in general – Ganesha is the central #God controlling all the #Planets.
2-The Puja timings at most places today in #India are between 11 and 1 during the day.

No tradition is as rich in #Mythical #Symbolism (that if properly meditated upon – can point to the reality) – as the Vedic Tradition.
3-According to the #Vedic Traditions of #Yoga, #Vastu, #Ayurveda and #Jyotish

..the following are the #Metaphors and #Allegories associated with #Ganesha

1-We have been talking about #Mantras and their place in the #Vedic #Tradition.

Today, let’s dwell on the #Shakti Mantras – quite perhaps the most #esoteric and #Powerful entities in their own right. (1/19)

2-A word of caution here.

Shakti Mantras are like an Atomic Bomb

They are extremely powerful

..and should be practiced with due consideration, initiation and guidance by your #Guru and under your full #Intuition. (2/19)

@ijyotish @shashankupadhy_

3-Fundamentally, Shakti Mantras are extremely powerful, mono or single syllabled mantras.

In the higher Yogic practices they have a special usage. (3/19)

1-Why is #Gayatri known as the Queen of #Mantras in #Sanatana?

The #Gayatri #Mantra is the most revered mantra in the #Vedic lore. (1/27)


2-It is an invocation as well as a prayer addressed to the Supreme #Creator of the #Universe

..and of the three worlds..

..the terrestrial, the celestial, and the one connecting these two. (2/27)


3-The literal meaning of the mantra is as follows -

We meditate on the glory of that #Ishwara

..the Supreme Lord of the universe

..Who has created this universe

..Who is accomplished to be revered

Who is the embodiment of true knowledge and light (3/27)

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

Some people say that even when Tulsi is once used in worship, can be cleaned and reused in another puja because it purifies itself. (3/25)

“‘Allegory Of The Cave’ & Hinduism”.

I do not know how many r familiar with Plato’s Republic.

‘Allegory Of The Cave’ is a very famous passage from the Republic where Plato’s explains the story in the context of education.

#hinduism #cave #plato #education #awakening
The lesson from this allegory has wide spread applications & interpretations in the current day but I would like to apply it to the existential crisis of Hindus in this 21st century!

#propaganda #left #western #Sanatana
The story goes like this –
Imagine a group of prisoners in a underground cave who have been chained there since they were kids and they are tied in such a way that they can’t move. All they can see is in front of them – the back wall of the cave with the entrance behind them.

The Empirization of China

The #Chinese want to be an #Empire and that too in a hurry. But many perished in this quest. #GreatBritain is no more a empire. #USA is also facing heat in #multipolar world in #PostColdWar era.
@narendramodi @MEAIndia
1. With cunning and ruthlessness #China was well on track. It might have become a #GlobalEmpire within another 20 to 30 years. But its own shrowdy , anti democratic and #AntiHuman policies leading to its own #disaster.
2.However in their desperation and over eagerness, China it seems has overplayed its hand on many fronts. Now, by triggering, concealing and manipulating a #CoronaPandemic, China has not only made its dream of empire untenable, it will probably destroy China.

Let me educate you @sardesairajdeep

The National movement set forth by Bankim Chandra, Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo,
Vande Mataram,mantra of an awakened🇮🇳, was diluted in the hands of Nehru’s leadership!

History-Muslims could dived 🇮🇳 due to being patronized by a faction👇🏻
INC extended concessions to Muslims to join freedom struggle
They remained British allies upto the end.
Leader of a leftist faction (harbouring a deep seated animosity against #Hindu society & culture, ignorant of both #Sanatana / Islam) in #Congress was JL #Nehru !
It had been proclaimed in 1947 that the so called communal problem had been solved forever;

hardly 70yrs have passed and the Muslims have started speaking the same language which they used before the partition of India?
