Why Is Krishna Blue in Color?

While fighting the snake,Krishna was exposed to the snake's venom that made his skin blue in colour. However, many also believe that within Krishna there lay a cosmic strength that is invisible to mortal eyes. Hence, his body appears blue in colour. Image
Another reason by-
Sadhguru explains Krishna's “blue magic”

Blue is the color of all-inclusiveness. You will see in the existence, anything that is vast and beyond your perception generally tends to be blue, whether it is the ocean or the sky. Image
Anything which is larger than your perception tends to be blue because blue is the basis of all-inclusiveness. It is based on this that so many gods in India are shown as blue-skinned. #Shiva has a blue skin, #Krishna has a blue skin, #Rama has a blue skin.

On days when the moon is full, its vibration, its feel, is very different than on other days. For a spiritual seeker, this day is like a boon from nature. Earlier, #Gurupurnima was among the most important festive occasions in the country. Over time, it got relegated to the
background due to ignorance and so fewer people were aware of its great significance. However, it is now coming back slowly into prominence with more seekers looking for spiritual guidance. Guru Purnima is the day the first guru was born. Once upon a time, Shiva attained and went
into intense ecstatic dance on the Himalayas. When we say Shiva, in the yogic culture, we do not refer to him as a god. He is seen as the Adiyogi, or the first yogi. When his ecstasy became beyond movement, he became still. When it allowed him some movement, he danced wildly.

This image of the Southern Crab Nebula was taken to celebrate Hubble's 29th anniversary since its launch on April 24, 1990. It shows the results of two stellar companions in a gravitational waltz, several thousand light-years from Earth.
.
It appears to have nested the structure of Shiva’s ”Damru” formed by a whirling pair of stars. Damru symbolizes the Universe which is always expanding and collapsing. From an expansion it collapses and then it re-expands, this is the process of creation. If you see your heartbeat
it is not just one straight line but it is a rhythm that goes up and down.
.
The whole world is nothing but rhythms; energy rising and collapsing to rise again. So the damru signifies that. Look at the shape of the damru, from expansion it collapses and again expands.

The game had its origin in India and was called #Moksha Patam or Parama Padam or Mokshapat. It was used to teach Hindu Dharma and Hindu values to children. The British renamed it #snakes and #Ladders.

The game was created by the 13th-century poet saint Gyandev. The ladders in
the game represented virtues and the #snakes indicated vices. The game was played with cowrie shells and dices. Later through time, the game underwent several modifications but the meaning is the same i.e good deeds take us to heaven and evil to a cycle of re-births. Certain
references take the game back to the 2nd century BC.

In the original game square, 12 was faith, 51 was Reliability, 57 was Generosity, 76 was #Knowledge, and 78 was Asceticism. These were the squares where the ladder was found. Square 41 was for Disobedience, 44 for Arrogance,

Notice your heartbeat, it is not just one straight line but it is a rhythm going up n down.The whole world is nothing but rhythms;energy rising n collapsing to rise again. So the damru signifies that.Notice shape of the damru, from expansion it collapses and again expands #Shiva Image
The darmru is also a symbol of sound. Sound is rhythm and sound is energy. The whole universe is nothing but a wave function, it is nothing but rhythms. What does quantum physics say?

The Mysterious Ever Growing #Shivling at #Matangeshwar Mandir, #Khajuraho, M.P

This temple was built in 9th century.

It is believed to be the only alive Shivling because it grows approximately 1inch every year and is presently about 9 ft tall above ground.
#DekhoApnaDesh ImageImageImage
Tourism department and Temple priests measure it every year on Kartik Purnima, and it is believed to Grow above and below the ground level symmetrically.

Story behind this Shivling :

Lord #Shiva (#Mahadev) had Markand Mani which he gave to Yudhishthir (One of the #Pandavas). Image
He gave it to Matang Rishi who then gave it to Harshvardhan.
He buried it in the ground, since there was no one to take care of it and a shivling started developing around the mani.
Since the mani was with Matang Rishi, it was named #Matangeshwar.

NATARAJA:THE COSMIC DANCER

#Nataraja meaning "The Lord of Dance" is a depiction of the Hindu God #Shiva as the cosmic ecstatic dancer.The pose &artwork is described in many #Hindu texts such as Anshumadbhed agama Uttarakamika agama.
The idol of Nataraja is featured in all major #Hindu #temples of Shaivism.

Nataraja is a well known sculptural symbol in #India and popularly used as a symbol of Indian culture, in particular as one of the finest illustrations of #Hindu art.
The two most common forms of Shiva's dance are the Lasya (the gentle form of dance), associated with the creation of the world, and the Tandava (the vigorous form of dance), associated with the destruction of weary worldviews - weary perspectives and lifestyles.

So I watched #Tandav and I'm completely confused by those claiming that the show insults a #Hindu deity. In fact, THAT scene with Lord #Shiva portrays him as a voice of the poor mazdoor (worker). It is a TRIBUTE! It is a COMPLIMENT! How how how can it be an insult? #TandavOnPrime
Sadly, that scene has now been censored out so the general public will not get to see it and make up their minds about it. #TandavOnPrime
Well-meaning folk who think #Tandav is being attacked to distract us from other issues: please don't make that mistake. Controlling culture is very much a part of the primary project. Stifling art to stifle free thought has been the way of fascists and despots throughout history.

Real names of #Jyothilinga by Adi shankara Acharya:

Some of the Sanskrit words taken from the full version are:
(1) Sourashtra + Soma Nadham - This is clearly Somnath in Gujarat
(2) Sri Saila + Mallika - This is Mallikarjuna from Sri Sailam Image
2/n

(3) Avanti + Maha Kala - Avanti was an ancient kingdom with Ujjain as its capital - So this one is Mahakaleshwar in Ujjain
(4) Narmadhayo + Onkarameesam - This one is Omkareswar next to Narmada river
3/n

(5) Poorvothare + Vaidyanatham = Poorva (East) + Uttar ( North) + Vaidyanatham - This is Vaidyanath dham from Deogarh
(6) Yamye + Sadange - Yamye is South & Sadange is the ancient name of Aundha, Maharashtra - So that's Nagnath in Aundha

#Thread - Kharosa Caves : A lost treasure of the great Hindu Civilisation

Built around the 6th century during the Gupta Era, Kharosa Caves are one of the finest examples of marvellous #Hindu architecture.

These 12 caves are located 45 kms away from Latur.

As per local legends, Kharosa is the place where Lord #Ram and Lakshman killed the demons Khar & Dushan.

Ramwadi, a village adjacent to Kharosa is believed to be a spot where Lord Ram, Maa Sita and Lakshman stayed during their exile.

The first and second cave are a G+1 structure.

Both these caves are interconnected.

Unfortunately, the first cave has now been defiled. It appears that the statue in this cave is of the ‘Trimurti’.

You can also see the garbage littered in the corner.

Die Pandemie treibt das #Waldorfschulen-Umfeld in private Chats. "Liebevolle Mütter" teilen dort Masken-Atteste, Verschwörungsmythen und Nazi-Vergleiche.

Thread.
anthroposophie.blog/2020/12/29/die…
Großes Thema in den halböffentlichen Chats von Waldorfeltern und -pädagog_innen: Masken. Wie man Kinder von ihnen befreit oder "atmungsaktive" Modelle mit Löchern schneidert.

Einige Eltern verweigern die Schulpflicht, wollen ihre Kinder schützen: Vor Abstand und Maskenpflicht.
Verschwörungsmythen wie "Zwangsimpfung" oder "DNA-Diebstahl" kursieren, man spricht von vielen "toten Kindern" durch den "Maskenterror". Vandalismus und Drohungen gegen Schulen, die Schutzmaßnahmen einhalten, werden bejubelt. Corona oder Pandemie werden vielfach geleugnet.

हिमालय भारत में स्थित एक प्राचीन पर्वत श्रृंखला है हिमालय को पर्वतराज भी कहते हैं जिसका अर्थ है पर्वतों का राजा । कालिदास तो हिमालय को पृथ्वी का मानदंड मानते हैं। हिमालय की पर्वतश्रंखलाएँ शिवालिक कहलाती हैं।

सदियों से हिमालय की कन्दराओं (गुफाओं) में ऋषि-मुनियों का वास रहा है
और वे यहाँ समाधिस्थ होकर तपस्या करते हैं । हिमालय आध्यात्म चेतना का ध्रुव केंद्र है। उत्तराखंड को श्रेय जाता है इस "हिमालयानाम् नगाधिराजः पर्वतः" का हृदय कहाने का। ईश्वर अपने सारे ऐश्वर्य- खूबसूरती के साथ वहाँ विद्यमान है।
हिमालय अनेक रत्नों का जन्मदाता है ( अनन्तरत्न प्रभवस्य यस्य), उसकी पर्वत-श्रंखलाओं में जीवन औषधियाँ उत्पन्न होती हैं ( भवन्ति यत्रौषधयो रजन्याय तैल पुरत सुरत प्रदीपः), वह पृथ्वी में रहकर भी स्वर्ग है।( भूमिर्दिवभि वारूढं)। हिमालय एक पर्वत तन्त्र है जो भारतीय उपमहाद्वीप को मध्य
