🧵A #MustRead : The business of Vedas is not actually physical sciences. But, in the course of developing philosophy, Vedas make some scientific statements. When we consider the question of space. The Vedas say that space is not empty; it is not vacuum. There are pages &

Advaita Vedanta philosophy, one of the 6 philosophies of #Hinduism states the threefold learning discipline for students. I was surprised to find about these 3 stages in learning in philosophy
as I realised how deep&evolved our education system was thousands ago! #Education
1. Sravana: This was the proper listening to whatever was taught to the student. What is fascinating is that it included seeing and feeling aspects too. So we had #empathic #ListeningSkills in place thousands of years ago already.
2. Manana: This referred to reflecting on what the student had heard. It was very much like having an internal dialogue with the words. #EasternWisdom #BharatKiSanskriti #IncredibleIndia

Profound words of Scholar, Congress Leader Late Prof. Siddheshwar Prasad Ji:

"Unfortunately, the books on Indian philosophy, culture, history and literature, written by Indian and foreign writers, have miserably failed to underline the importance of the sound formulation,

the metaphysical and sociological foundation of the #Bharatiya #Samskṛti. This has led them to present it in a very distorted manner. Therefore, they have also failed to see its positive features.
There are weak points and there have been lapses also. After all why #Bharat

was almost always defeated at the hands of the foreign invaders? But how and why it not only still survives but is rejuvenated? Why the #Egyptian, the #Greek, the #Babylonian, the #Asyrian and some other ancient civilizations and cultures disappeared? The simple answer is,

#history #Hindutva #SanghParivar #BJP
The #AryaSamaj was founded on 10 April 1875 at Bombay (#Mumbai) by Swami #DayanandSaraswati. This monotheistic order laid stress on the values laid down in the #Vedas & was against idol worship.
As a counter to the proselytizing Abrahamic faiths like Christianity and Islam, the #AryaSamaj launched a reconversion campaign called #shuddhi. As the #HinduMahasabha grew in the 1920s, many #AryaSamaj leaders joined it. Shuddhi became one of the Mahasabha's driving forces

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
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
So to elaborate, marriage is about responsibilities - duties and obligations which can best be dealt with as a couple.

(प्रश्न) वेद संस्कृतभाषा में प्रकाशित हुए और वे अग्नि आदि ऋषि लोग उस संस्कृतभाषा को नहीं जानते थे फिर वेदों का अर्थ उन्होंने कैसे जाना?

(उत्तर) परमेश्वर ने जनाया। और धर्मात्मा योगी महर्षि लोग जब-जब जिस-जिस के अर्थ को जानने की इच्छा करके ध्यानावस्थित हो


#vedas #AryaSamaj
परमेश्वर के स्वरूप में समाधिस्थ हुए तब-तब परमात्मा ने अभीष्ट मन्त्रें के अर्थ जनाये । जब बहुतों के आत्माओं में वेदार्थप्रकाश हुआ तब ऋषि मुनियों ने वह अर्थ और ऋषि मुनियों के इतिहासपूर्वक ग्रन्थ बनाये। उन का नाम ब्राह्मण

#veda #सत्य_को_छुपाती_मीडिया #smritiirani #Mayawati
अर्थात् ब्रह्म जो वेद उसका व्याख्यान ग्रन्थ होने से ब्राह्मण नाम हुआ। और-

ऋषयो मन्त्रदृष्टयः मन्त्रन् सम्प्रादुः।

जिस-जिस मन्त्रर्थ का दर्शन जिस-जिस ऋषि को हुआ और प्रथम ही जिस के पहले उस मन्त्र का अर्थ किसी ने प्रकाशित नहीं किया था; किया और दूसरों को पढ़ाया भी।

1/n Who are we?

So audacious,appearing immortals, chanting the same Vaidik Ruchas composed millenniums back on the banks of #Saraswati, #Sindhu & many #Sindhus till today.

The Hindus(inhabitants of land beyond Sindhu), followers of Dharma, ie Sanatana,long way we have come.
2/n I always say that it impossible to give a date to Sanatana Dharma.

We need to decode both the words to understand meaning wisely.

Sanatana refers to "imperishable" & "eternal." (refer Śivapurāṇa 2.2.16, 2.2.42)
3/n What does word Sanātanī signify?

Often it signifies the duties which takeaway thoughts from the #Vedas, #Upanishads, #Puranas #Itihasas Bhagavad Gita etc.

Now, question arises that why they are Sanātan, & why no other thoughts?

Ancient Batteries, Hydrogen & Oxygen discovered by Rishi Agastya in India
Agastya Samhita, written thousands of years ago contains methods to construct an electric battery or cell, and also, how to utilize the battery to ‘split‘ water into its constituent gasses
(Hydrogen an Oxygen).
Modern battery cell resembles Agastya’s method of generating electricity. For generating electricity, Sage Agastya had used the following materials : One earthen pot, Copper plate, Copper sulphate, Wet saw dust, Zinc amalgam.
A clean copper plate is put in an earthenware vessel.
It is covered first by copper sulfate and then moist sawdust.
After that put a mercury-amalgamated-zinc sheet on top of an energy known by the twin name of Mitra-Varuna.
Water will be split by this current into Pranavayu

Which Body Type are you?

Ayurveda is one of the fastest modes to good health as Ayurveda follows a simple path that is developed or is appropriate to your body type or dosha. Ayurveda follows the concept of understanding the doshas in order to heal oneself.
The three ayurvedic body types, or doshas, are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each type of dosha has a unique set of characteristics and the body type of a person depends on their physical and emotional attributes.
To maintain good health and state of mind it is necessary to know your dosha, in order to practice a suitable diet, exercise, and lifestyle pattern.

Rec'd thro WA.

Why Veda mantrams are chanted in Sanskrit only ? Why not to translate into Tamil / Marathi , etc and chanted ? --- A beautiful explanation*
Sri T Sadagopan Iyengar is a genius. Studied Physics at IIT and retired from IIT. I admire him for his simplicity and complex knowledge. Sharing a recent post of his--

Interesting response.

I am a firm believer that science and reality are not different.
I will do a little research whenever I get the chance to confirm it.

Recently I attended a Srardham at a relative’s house. That relative has some revolutionary thoughts (he thinks). He was translating all the mantras recited by the Shastri into Tamil meaning..

#Thread on how Atharveda advises a couple to strengthen their conjugal relationship and strive together for fulfilling the ultimate objective of being a householder. #husband #wife #vedas #Hinduism #SanatanDharma #family #atharveda #hindu #conjugal #couple #love #house #domestic
In 8th & 9th Suktas of the 6th Kand (Book) of Atharveda, there is advise to couples as to how to experience conjugal bliss and strengthen their life long relationship such as that their domestic life progresses with utmost happiness and contentment.
.. The mantras here, like in any Veda, have a transliterated as well as metaphorical meaning. Readers are suggested to try to grasp both the meanings to be able to appreciate the most authoritative and ancient wisdom in our divine Sanatan Dharma.

A Mini-#Thread on what Rig Veda says about the roles and responsibilities of a husband and wife in a householder. #husband #wife #vedas #Hinduism #SanatanDharma #family #rigveda #hindu
Sanatan Dharma has always been a wrongful victim of being allegedly patriarchal, especially when it comes to assignment of roles and responsibilities of husband and wife in managing their households.
.. However, if we analyse the supreme Sanatani knowledge enshrined in the divine Vedas and strive to comprehend the deeper meaning of the relevant mantras, the directives from the same contrast the above mindless allegation.

#Thread to counter this (pseudo) logic making rounds in the trads circle to justify their imaginary restriction of women to study and chant Vedas. #vedas #SanatanDharma #women #dharma #chanting
This one is concerned to the anatomy of females which according to them are not suitable for chanting of Vedic hymns. Trads/tradcells (inspired by their Gurus) claim chanting of Vedic mantra affects the reproductive organs of women,..
.. by burning their uterus over period of time, while in case of men their organ remains intact !
