Science behind Gowtra #Genetics
Do you know why every time you sit in a puja the priest asks you for Gotra? What is Gotra system? Why do we have this? Why do we consider this to decide marriages? Why should sons carry the #gowtra of father, why not daughter? @sattology
How/why does gotra of a daughter change after she gets married? What is the logic? Infact this is an amazing genetic science we follow.
Let's see the #science of #Genetics behind gotra systems.
The word GOTRA formed from two #Sanskrit words GAU (means cow) Trahi (means shed)
Gotra means #cowshed. Gotra is like cowshed protecting a particular male lineage.
We identify our male lineage/gotra by considering to be descendants of the 8 great Rishi (#Saptarishi + Bharadwaj Rishi). All the other gotra evolved from these only.

Before Britishers and Mughals destroyed indigenous values of India, we were number one in World GDP.
Macaulay designed education system worked well to produced quasi English people working against our own values.

#அரபி & #கிந்தி
அரபி ஒரு அருமையான மொழி. எழுத்தும் ஓசையும் அழகானது. அது #இசுலாம் என்ற மதத்தை incorporate செய்யவதற்கு முன்னரே இருந்த மொழி.
ஆனால், இன்று ஒரு மத மொழியாகவே முன்னெடுக்கப்பட்டு, அந்த எழுத்தே மதப்புனிதம் என்றாகி, மொழியையே பலர் இசுலாமாகப் பார்த்து, மொழிக்கு பொது உலக (general audience) குறைந்து, மதப்பயன்பாடே வளருகிறது.

அதுவே ஒவ்வாமையையும் உண்டாக்குகிறது.
மதம் வேறு மொழிவேறு என்பது, அய்யம்பட்டி சலீமுக்குகூட தெரிவதில்லை. "அரபியில் ஓதினாலே அல்லாவுக்கு கேட்கும்" என்று மதத்தால் ஒரு மொழியை கட்டிவிட்டார்கள்.😔

1-Today we shall continue to dive deeper into the aspects of #Past #Life #Astrology.

And the very first word that comes to mind is #Karma.

#Karma is actually a poorly understood term.

Most people think of Karma and might think of punishment and retribution. (1/25)
2-The fact is Karma is like a #Cosmic, ongoing, Instruction Design of God.

Karma is rather concerned with #Evolution and #Growth.

@BabaRamDass used to often say, “May be the #Law of #Karma itself is #God” (2/25)

3-Just like Ether, Karma is all-embracing and has a myriad of #Manifestations

The #Cosmos operates at different levels of #Karma –from Personal Karma to the Karma of entire nations or communities. (3/25)

#thread on article by #SoumyaDeb on @IndiaFactsOrg

He tried to defend well the words exonym #Hindu and oxymoron #Hinduism.

He cited historians #romilathapar @D_N_Jha #RobertEricFrykenberg


@Aloft_Incumbent once stated that the WORD '#Hindu' didn;t exist. To which I disagree.

Should she disagree with facts I provide, please reply.

Magathenese a #Greek traveller long back noted India as '#Indus' ~400 BCE.

@Sanjay_Dixit @mamatarsingh

India was known as country bounded by INDUS river, Himalaya & sea from 3 side.
FaXian 400 AD called India as Shintu, and Hindu is corrupted name of Chinese name IN-TU. (H+Indus)

#Hindu word existed even before another Abrahamic faith took birth.

Is Modi meekly making 🇮🇳 a digital colony English language slave of USA?

China has Mandarin social media. 🇮🇳 has the population for Hindi etc. alternatives to Twitter & Facebook etc.

Google ❤️#Chinese & #Latin
Google Hates #Sanskrit 😡 Image
Meanwhile Google makes massive profits from India while crores with Google Android mobiles live in poverty.

India’s struggle to impose a ‘Google Tax’…
There are literally, thousands of precious Sanskrit manuscripts that have NEVER been translated.

An AI engine for Sanskrit will help.

1-Through the #Grace of the #Godeess ,we have been on a cosmic #Joyride since quite some time now!

Let’s continue with the same with the discussions on some more #Shakti #Mantras! (1/21)

2-Let’s begin today with #Klim

Klim – pronounced as #Kleem is about the wonderful, seductive #God - #Krishna

#Klim is blissful and full of #Ananda – because Krishna is #Bliss (pure #Ananda!) (2/21)

3-#Klim also relates to #Sundari the #Goddess of #Love, #Beauty and #Transcendence

#Klim activates #Desire, #Love and #Attraction

In #VedicAstrology #Klim is used to invoke #Venus and sometimes #moon. (3/21)

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)

I had a very hectic day today. But still took out time 2read the #NEP2020 #NewEducationPolicy , at least Part 1, School Education. Although there is a huge gap between Policy making and execution, at least on the policy level its a solid good document. Why so much noise?
There are definitely few concerns that require clarification. But overall its a progressive document.

1. The policy i liked best is the inclusion of Age 3-6 in Elementary Education. Considering 85% of brain development happens before age 6 in a child, i am glad they included.
The present flagship programme of the govt, the much touted Sarva Siksha Abhiyan covered Elementary education from Age 6 upwards to age 14. So this is definitely a huge positive.
Concern : The Right to Education Act 2009 covers the Universalisation of Education from age 6-14.

I wrote this thread for my own knowledge you may read on and see #conversion is old Britain plan for spreading #christianity
Britishers carried out research on Indian people, literature, scripture behaviour and presented their report to 'The House of Commons, UK' in 1813 April.

We will see how conversion to #CHRISTIANITY is akin to CIVILISING in following thread.
The two gentlemen John Malcolm and Dr Buchanan speaks high of #hindus moralities, modalities and vividities. Malcolm calls Hindustan as Great World In Miniature.

1. How our Ancient Indians use to calculate #Time and #calendar according to Srimad #Bhagawatham.
Will calculate age of Brahma 1st:
Usually, 60 sec = 1 min, 60 min = 1 hour, 24 hours = 1 day, 7 days = 1 week, 30 days (on avg) = 1 month, 12 months = 1 year.
2. Like this -
4,32,000 years is Kali Yuga
4,32,000X2 = 8,64,000 years is Dwapara Yuga
4,32,000X3 = 12,96,000 years is Treta Yuga
4,32,000X4 = 17,28,000 Years is Sat Yuga
All together four yugas is 1 Chatur Yug i.e,
4,32,000 X (4+3+2+1) = 43,20,000 years is 1 Chatur Yuga
3. 1000 Chatur Yugas is Brahma's half day. (day time) another 1000 Chatur Yugas is Brahma's 2nd half day (night time)
2000 Chatur Yugas is Brahma's 1 whole day.
like this 365 days for Brahma is 1 year. Brahma's age is 100 years. after his tenure,
next Brahma will be appointed.

THREAD | Aryan Invasion Theory debunked

Lot of people have asked about 'Aryan Invasion Theory' (AIT) and where it stands today.

An effort to bring various pieces together.

Please read on

AIT was propounded at the time when most of the technologies were not available (e.g. Astronomical S/w, DNA Profiling, Paleontologist studies). AIT states that Aryan were Europeans who came on horses with 'Ayas' and settled during ~2000 BC.
The cause of AIT propagation was to establish racial superiority and colonising India.

When they found Indian culture far rich and advanced, they stole it and termed Indus valley inhabitants as Aryan race who drove Dravidian to south.

Here is the complete #recitation of #stories from #Mitrabheda tantra of #Panchatantra in #Sanskrit with main thread story of Piṅgalaka Sañjīvaka Karaṭaka Damanaka. Includes all the 17 sub-stories embedded at the right places.…

To completely understand and appreciate #Panchatantra, it is necessary to read the sub-stories in the context in which they appear in the main story. This is an effort to present Panchatantra in that original format
With this, we have reached the 1st milestone of this project which was started more than an year back. Thanks to all the children who have participated in this, who often memorized the stories and recited them perfectly to the camera.
