Several Hindu Texts say that Surya is the supreme god despite there being million times larger things in Universe like 'Red Giants', What do the Hindu texts really want to signify here? Is Surya the supreme god or is there a philosophical meaning?
#SanatanaDharma Image
Hinduism is a really cryptic religion. As far as Surya Upasana, there are four to five different fundamental roots.
#SanatanaDharma Image
As Gratitude: Surya is a life giver. Everything on the Earth can be attributed to Surya. Nothing can sustain if energy from Surya is not available. Hence, we offer Gratitude to him.

What was the genuine reason behind a "wedding" according to the Vedas?
To truly understand this “genuine” reason behind a wedding, we must first know Vedic nomenclature; thus its important that we start with some linguistics.
#SanatanaDharma #Vedas #Vedic Image
A wedding in Sanskrit is “vivāha” - it is comprised of two roots:–

vi = viśeṣa - specific or particular.

vāha = bearing, carrying, transporting.

So it refers to the taking on, or accepting of specific burdens or responsibilities.
#SanatanaDharma #Vedas #Vedic Image
So to elaborate, marriage is about responsibilities - duties and obligations which can best be dealt with as a couple.

Bhagwan Vishnu carries a mace which symbolizes Vishnu’s divine power is the source of all mental, spiritual, and physical strength. Is it true?

In this era we give an abstract reason for everything in scriptures.
#SanatanaDharma Image
To understand the Mace we must know the difference between Vishnu & his Krishna Avatar.

With Vishnu we can convert an idea into action any time, yielding a weak or a strong action i.e. we can vary the action's power, like we vary the power generated from Mace.
#SanatanaDharma Image
In contrast, with Krishna we can convert an idea into an action from our Positive attitude only, which would result in maximally efficient actions and ensure that all activities of our life are compatible among themselves.

Do Hindu scriptures say that Surya is Supreme Hindu god?

Surya Sukta 1.50.1 is about passage of a wave of muscle tone from feet to top of head. We can have the same effect by looking at the afternoon Sun. Therefore, Surya Sukta is not actually about the Sun.
#SanatanaDharma Image
A popular Sukta as it is one in which a thought passes from Nirguna Brahman stage, through all 7 stages, across Saguna Brahman into an action. Its one reason why Surya is a candidate for supreme god. However, the knowledge about Surya in Rig Veda is too little.
#SanatanaDharma Image
Many Hindu gods are supposed to be supreme gods? Why is it so?

The Hindu sages of Rig Vedic period realized that for a thought to be converted into a reliable and efficient action it has to be processed in an unknown number of stages and in an unknown order.

What are the roles of women in Hinduism?

There is no “fixed” and “immutable” position on anything in Hinduism and everything is conditioned by time, place and circumstance.
#Hinduism #SanatanaDharma #women Image
The role of women has changed over several centuries and will keep on changing.

Leaving aside the past and focusing on the PRESENT we can confidently say:
#Hinduism #SanatanaDharma #women Image
Biological role of women is the same as it has always been and always will be, in spite of the Post-modern gender theories.

What is the scientific basis of maintaining a ‘shikha’ (a tuft of hair on head)?

The point of ‘shikha’ on head has brahma-randhra (main brain) (10th door). A man dies instantly if this point is agitated. The Vedic science directs that one should keep a shikha

“shikha should be knotted (just as the door has to be shut), so that the spiritual energies gained through religious practices are not wasted. Shikha acts as an antenna to keep in touch with
God (Parabrahma Parmatma). Electrical studies have a principle that pointed objects pierce through electrical energy. So knotting is a process based on scientific principles.”

Why Is Jal (Water) Offered to Surya Bhagwan (Sun)?
Our body has a great need for colors, as these are vital for the well-being of the different parts of our body system. It may surprise many to know that several parts of the human body have different

The rays of the sun are white, but when passed through a medium, they get broken into their basic hues. When we offer water or jal in the
morning to the rising sun in the prescribed manner, the sheet of water falling on to the ground works as a medium to split the sun’s rays into a spectrum of colors & enters our body to benefit us. If you wish to offer water to the sun, you must do it in the correct & prescribed

Experiences with Periva - Care for the Atheists too!
It was the beginning of May, with the sun at its scorching best. There was a political meeting opposite to Kacchabeswarar (Kacchabam - tortoise) mandir held by a group of Atheists. The audience was around 200. @Vadicwarrior Image
The leader swore that he would demolish all mandirs, build industries in those places & provide jobs to everyone.
Inside the Kanchi mutt, Periava called for the Paatti (elderly woman) who used to serve butter milk in front of the mutt. He told her to make an 'Unda' @AnuSatheesh5
full of butter milk. He listed the ingredients - asafoetida, curry leaves, green chillies, ginger, mustard (boiled). Sishyas & Bhaktas were surprised & were also worried because it was an ordinary day & there were not too many people at the mutt.

The first school in England opened in 1811. At that same time Bharat had 7,32,000 Gurukuls.

Until 1850 these Gurukuls was imparting Education to over 7,50,000 villages in 🇮🇳. Which means almost 1 Gurukul for Each Village.

#SanatanaDharma #HinduRashtra
Gurukuls were 'Higher Learning Institutes' comparatively from KG to PhD.

No King used to decide what was taught nor controlled the Gurukuls. Kings used to only contribute to them. Majority Gurukuls were directly funded by Hindu Temples.
18 subjects were taught. Education was imparted free and it was for real life not theoretical like today.

Gurukuls gave complete life skills so you can go on to become to do anything be it is Vedic studies, Medicine, Engineering, defence, food, entrepreneurship etc.

Why is #Kashi so significant to Hindus? Part-3 #Thread

"A Basic Description of the #Kashi Tirtha Yatra"

Varanasi does not receive much attention in Vedic literature, but its glory is strongly eulogized in puranic literature and treatises.
Kashi (The "Luminous"), Avimukta (The "Never-Forsaken" of Shiva, the patron deity), Anandavana (The "Forest of Bliss"), and Rudravasa (The "Dwelling site of Shiva") have all been used to describe the concept of image.

“The mark of swastika is the position of Sapta-Rishis in the orbit round the Pole Star (Dhruv Tara) : In addition to all these”

“arguments, if seen realistically, the swastika mark is related to
astronomy. Swastika is the basic mark in the circular movement of Sapta-Rishi Mandal going round the Pole Star. Before starting any auspicious work, we utter swasti words (Swastivachan).

Avadhūta-Gītā: The 24 Gurus

On hearing this Question, Dattātreya-jī was Pleased.
He asked.
श्रीब्राह्मण उवाच:

सन्ति मे गुरवो राजन् बहवो बुद्ध्युपाश्रिता:।
यतो बुद्धिमुपादाय मुक्तोऽटामीह तान् श‍ृणु॥


"O King, I had many Gurus & I learned from all of them according to my Understanding”

He did Not egoistically say, “I learned it all.”
He said, “They are all my Gurus.
They taught me everything.”

Actually, the Truth was that he had kept learning from all of them.
Only one who keeps learning from his experiences is Truly intelligent.

We all want our bank balances to increase, do we Not?
Do you know that there is also a bank of Knowledge?
It is a bank where our balance always keeps Increasing.

Pranay Kumar, a journalist with the Organiser magazine visited a few cities like New Jalpaiguri, Siliguri, Islampur, Malda Town, Murshidabad etc., villages and towns situated adjacent to them, where he noticed a terrible imbalance in the demographics in these villages.
As a result, local Hindus migrate to other cities or safer locations, to escape from the organised and sponsored violence. As a result, Hindu migrants are selling their homes, farms, businesses, and other assets.
Following their escape, some Muslims share their land, take gardens, and care for their homes with great care and skill. They then obtain ownership rights to those lands at rock-bottom prices, have them registered in their names by demonstrating a fear of losing possession of the

'Therefore at all times, constantly remember Me & Fight.
With the Mind & Intellect absorbed in Me,
You shall doubtless come to Me.'

सर्वेषु कालेषु, at all times;

I am the Infinite One,
