5 things to do to celebrate Janmasthami

[A Thread] 👇
1. Pray in Brahma Muhurata
Brahma Muhurta is the morning period between 3.30 a.m. and 5.30 a.m.

You can chant Krishna's name during this period to purify your mind and surroundings and have a refreshing start to the day.
2. Fast until midnight
Fasting is an important component of celebrating Janmashtami. If possible, begin fasting at dawn and refrain from eating until midnight.

If fasting till midnight feels too much of a burden, you can consume water, fruits, and milk.

Wild #crypto #bull and #bear market idea thread:

There won’t be much bear market anymore like we saw back in 2010-2019; why?

1. Too many people know this #digital #asset now; with 1% high net worth will do anything in their power to buy the dip (ask their fin. advisor)
2. #Bitcoin become real reserve in many companies and few small countries now, ok, it can dip down even to 20-30k still in the future with bad news and regulations
3. With 2. if #BTC drawdown a lot from now (45-50k range), #altcoin will take hits too; of course, with bad #shitcoin they will likely drop 40-99%. pick your asset carefully! but the winner will retain value; 20-50% drop may happen; #HODL! if it's good #fundamental!

#VendrediOperaChinois Opéra Puxian « Le récit du Lapin blanc » 莆仙戏《白兔记》

🎭Le #théâtre Puxian (l’#opéra Puxian), vieux de plus de mille ans et surnommé le « fossile vivant des opéras chinois » est l’un des quatre grands théâtres du Sud.

👇Synopsis de la pièce en bas
Il permet l’introduction dans le #Fujian des cent opéras déjà en vogue dans la plaine centrale. Le répertoire traditionnel compte plus de cinq mille pièces, parmi lesquelles quatre-vingts des Song et des Yuan ont été conservées.

#opera #theatre #spectacle #chine #tradition
Les personnages, vivants et émouvants, manifestent les aspects singuliers des représentations du théâtre du Sud de l’époque. La musique est riche et raffinée, la langue lyrique se rapproche de la poésie Tang.

Les #honneurs au #gibier : derrière une #tradition, de la #symbolique et du sens.
Un thread 🧶 ⤵️

Un extrait du passage de Charles-Henri Bachelier face à Pierre Rigaux sur BFM il y a quelques jours à beaucoup fait parler les anti-chasse.

Principalement pour moquer les égards qu’il réservait au chevreuil après l’avoir tué. Les antis y ont vu une manière de se voiler la face de la violence de la chasse, ou pire, une excuse en carton, comme si remercier le gibier valait aux yeux du chasseur excuse de l’avoir tué.
C’est faire un contresens majeur sur la signification de tous les rites d’honneurs et d’hommage au gibier. LES rites, car ces rites diffèrent, et parfois sont absents, dépendant du gibier chassé, de la manière de le chasser, et des régions ou la chasse est pratiquée.

Previously, I linked #BuildBackBetter & the #GreatReset to the #MauriceStrong network (mid-1970s but kicking off with the 1992 UN #EarthSummit in Rio). I also linked Strong to the #Rockefeller clan. We may have to go a bit further back in time.

Thread 👇
In 1972, The #ClubofRome published its '#LimitsToGrowth', using simulations to describe the impact of resource depletion on #economic growth. The Club was founded in 1968 by David #Rockefeller, the industrialist Aurelio Peccei & Alexander King.
Its computer-generated models of #doom were designed to impress but were based on simplistic ideas & dubious assumptions. The report, nonetheless, remains influential & illustrates the #Rockefeller obsession with population growth & #resource control

And we charge you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother walking disorderly, and not according to the traditions which they have received of us.(2Thess3:6-10.16-18 #HolyMass #Aug26)~DouayRheims #Bible #tradition #Christian
2. Neither did we eat any man's bread for nothing, but in labour and in toil we worked night and day, lest we should be chargeable to any of you.

Now the Lord of peace himself give you everlasting peace in every place. The Lord be with you all.

1. Pius XII established this feast in 1954. Mary’s queenship has roots in Scripture. At the Annunciation, Gabriel announced that Mary’s son would receive the throne of David and rule forever. At the Visitation, #QueenshipofMary #Bible #tradition
2. Elizabeth calls Mary 'mother of my Lord.'

As in all the mysteries of Mary’s life, Mary is closely associated with Jesus:

Her queenship is a share in Jesus’ kingship.

We can also recall that in the Old Testament the mother of the king has great influence in court.
3. In the fourth century St Ephrem called Mary ‘Lady’ and ‘Queen’.

Later Church fathers and doctors continued to use the title. Hymns of the 11th to 13th centuries address Mary as queen: ‘Hail, Holy Queen,’ ‘Hail, Queen of Heaven,’ ‘Queen of Heaven.’

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-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)

Maybe we should change tack and - instead of concentrating on corrupt politicians - spend our efforts on changing our own approach to society and take on the challenge of reform in #Britain. #WATON
2/ Many Brits are stunned to find themselves in a situation that appears unchangeable and dismal. Reactions range from disbelief, regret of not acting differently earlier, resignation, anger and sadness. “How could this have happened? “ is a question I heard countless times.
2/ Comparisons with 1933 Germany are made, and similarities are there. But nobody is really examining how Germany got over this (with Allied help) to develop the democracy they have now. Lessons of failures and successes could be learned

1-A lot of people sometimes contact me – for what is perhaps unique to #India!

They call it #HoroscopeMatching.

And it is undertaken mostly just before the marriage season commences – around the end of #October. (1/29)

2-Over the years I have gathered a certain little understanding about this beautiful aspect of #Vedic #Astrology

And today, we shall dwell a little on it (2/29)

3-Though, our #Scriptures have a very clear and definitive commentary on this aspect,

..I have found the works of Hart De Fouw particularly helpful for a #Learner.

Here is a #simplified version of the understanding. (3/29)

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)
