1/Out of the six systems of philosophy of #Hinduism, the #Vedanta system is the most popular one & its canonical works are #Upanishads, #Brahmasutras, & #BhagavadGita, considered as SRUTIS by #Hindus (Primary Scriptures revealed by GOD & passed on to generations by vsrious sages.
2/The Smritis are secondary scriptures recorded through memory by human origin ).
The four great #Vedas have two portions, Karma-Kanda(sacrificial/ ritual portion) & Gnana-Kanda(Wisdom portion, known as Vedanta that prepares for Higher Spiritual Vision/ attainment)
3/The Upanishads are known as Vedanta( which means Final Goal of wisdom. Veda is wisdom & Anta means end)
The ONENESS of Soul and GOD lies at the very root of all Vedic thought. It is the IDEAL OF UNITY OF ALL LIFE & ONENESS OF TRUTH, makes UPANISHADS appealing to modern minds.

1/ #Vedanta preaches "INFINITE & finite in one" & declares-"COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS(BRAHMAN) alone is the REALITY-the SOURCE of apparent threefold divisions of knower, knowledge&known in the mind of individual consciousness of ego, creating a world-drama of names&forms.
2/It is only by using the finite intellect & the tools of meditation, non-attachment, renunciation, love for the love's sake thru Yogas of Karma, Bhakti, Jnana & Raja, a Yogi reslises the INFINITE CONSCIOUSNESS OF BLISS, AN ABSOLUTE STATE OF ONENESS IN TRANSCENDENTAL STATE.
3/A Yogi meditates & merges his lowerself of body, senses & mind into his HIGHER TRANSCENDENTAL SELF of COSMIC-CONSCIOUSNESS to enjoy the OCEAN of Nectar & Absolute Bliss.
This TRANSCENDENTAL Non-Dual State is the only REALITY declare #Vedas.

शिखाबन्धन (वन्दन) आचमन के पश्चात् शिखा को जल से गीला करके उसमें ऐसी गाँठ लगानी चाहिये, जो सिरा नीचे से खुल जाए। इसे आधी गाँठ कहते हैं। गाँठ लगाते समय गायत्री मन्त्र का उच्चारण करते जाना चाहिये ।शिखा, मस्तिष्क के केन्द्र बिन्दु पर स्थापित है।

जैसे रेडियो के ध्वनि विस्तारक केन्द्रों में ऊँचे खम्भे लगे होते हैं और वहाँ से ब्राडकास्ट की तरंगें चारों ओर फेंकी जाती हैं, उसी प्रकार हमारे मस्तिष्क का विद्युत् भण्डार शिखा स्थान पर है,
उस केन्द्र में से हमारे विचार, संकल्प और शक्ति परमाणु हर घड़ी बाहर निकल-निकलकर आकाश में दौड़ते रहते हैं।

Can mantra chanting bring financial abundance?

A thread. 🧵

#spirituality #mantra Image
There are many misconceptions about whether Mantras can bring about material benefits.
As per the Vedic view, Sadhana is not a substitute for the right Karma or action.

The results come from #Karma alone.

However, when hard work is backed by the right thinking, Sadhana can begin to work wonders.

Our #Vedas

The Vedic literature is composed of many books. The oldest texts are the Rig-veda, Yajur-veda, Sama-veda, and the Atharva-veda.

It is said in the Muktikopanishad that these four Vedas had 21, 109, 1000, and 50 branches respectively, with over 100,000 verses.

Cont. Image
Now, however, we can only find around 20,023 (some say 20,379) verses in total from these four Vedas.

The Vedas were put in written form around 5500+ years ago. The Vedas reveal their wisdom and philosophies by means of nature.

The Vedas reveal answers about purpose and role of all existence. They also give information on living the life in tune with nature to achieve long lasting happiness, health and peace.

A #thread about some #myths of #languages and #scripts (of #India): 🧵(I wrote in Kannada earlier)
Every language including #Sanskrit comes in spoken form first & later in written form. Most languages are dated by the earliest time when a written record for them is found. 1/17
#Samskrta can be considered an exception, where we have record of the spoken word before we see its written form. This is because the #Vedas were preserved in a speech form for millennia before being written down. In case of other languages, this is not so. 2/17
For ex: First written record of #Kannada date to 2-3rd C CE. But this does not prove Kannada did'nt exist prior to 2nd CE. It is better to inferwriting was introduced/adapted to Kannada then. In fact we see how the script used to write Prakrit in as adapted to write Kannada 3/17

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.
