MARRIAGE OF BALAJI AND PADMAVATI.

Friends, most of us are the bhakts of Vishnu and have worshipped all tha avtaars that he has taken. It is a interesting story about in the backdrop of Ramayana period.

So let's start....
Once the daughter of Akaashraj,whose name was Padmini or Padmavati, ventured out in the forest to collect flowers for puja. She was picking out on flowers when she noticed a divine white colour horse nearby.
On it sat a very good looking, well built dark in colour person with a mesmerizing personality. He was adorned with beautiful ornaments made of gold and studded with precious stones. With his big and beautiful eyes,he seemed to be searching for something.
He too was curious about that lady. He went near them and inquirrd about their whereabouts. On getting his answer about Padmavati, now the ladies wanted to know his identity. He said he was Veerpati from VENKATACHAL. Actually he was Shrihari himself.
Padmini and her friends also kept on thinking about the divine personality they had just met. Shrihari left for his abode with the firm resolve of marrying Padmini.

At lunch time,when the sevika came to offer the afternoon bhog to Shrihari.
At that time he informed the sevika vedmalika of his intention to marry Padmini and the reason behind it.

It was the Vanvaas period for Ram and Sita. In this period Ravana went to kidnap Sita with help of Mariachi.
Agnidev, who was present in the fire lit for havan,realized the danger and Carried Sita to Pataal loks and handed her to his wife Swaaha. He then made Vedvati look exactly like Sita and replaced her in the hut. So actually Sita was not Kidnapped but it was Vedvati.
In her previous birth,the same demon had touched her so in this birth she wanted to be instrumental for his death.The real Sita was returned back to Ram during Agni Pariksha. It was Sita who blessed Vedvati and asked her husband to accept Vedvati.
But Ram said that this marriage would take place in Vedvati's next birth.

In this birth Vedvati was born as the daughter of Akashraj and Prithvi mata. So now the time had come for this marriage to be solemnized. Vedmalika was sent to Prithvi mata with Shrihari's request.
The bride's side were all overjoyed. Akashraj invited Brahaspati to find an auspicious date for this marriage. It was decided that the marriage would take place in the Vaishakha month in Uttara Falguni nakshatra. All the Saptrishis and devtas were invited for this occasion.
On the set date the divine marriage took place in the presence of all devtas.The marriage rituals were conducted by Brahma. The four day function was held in all its charm and glory. Shrihari and Padmavati left for their abode at Venkatachal or what we call as Tirupati.

THE LIFE OF VALMIKI BEFORE HE BECAME A RISHI.

As per Skanda Puran, There lived a poor Brahmin named Shamimukh. He had a son named Vishakh. The son was very cruel and of evil character who fed his family comprising of his parents and wife by looting and robbing. Image
The parents were too old and totally dependent.

Once when Vishakh was on his looting spree, The Saptrishis happened to pass through that forest. As was his habit, Vishakh stopped them and went near them in order to rob them of their belongings. Image
The Rishi's realising their situation were still very calm and serene. They all discussed amongst themselves that our chance meeting with this evil person should not go in vain if only they could instill some positivity in him.

INTELLIGENCE IS KNOWING AND REALISING YOURSELF

Rig ved 1.31.14

Here Agnidev is the Purohit of the devtas. He is requested to destroy our ignorance and darkness. He is also requested to enlighten us with our Sthool and Sukshma self that Aatma and Parmatma are one.

1/8 Image
He is also requested to enlighten us in our dreams and sleep by waking our inner light. He is requested to guide us on right path and make us wealthy with providing us Fame, Family, Worldly happiness.

This body is made for a purpose and it consists of Panchmahabhoot. Agnidev is one of its component.

त्वम॑ग्न उरु॒शंसा॑य वा॒घते॑ स्पा॒र्हं यद्रेक्णः॑ पर॒मं व॒नोषि॒ तत् ।
आ॒ध्रस्य॑ चि॒त्प्रम॑तिरुच्यसे पि॒ता प्र पाकं॒ शास्सि॒ प्र दिशो॑ वि॒दुष्ट॑रः ॥

STORY OF HAYAGRIVA(हयग्रीव)

It is unimaginable for us to think about Bhagwan Vishnu. Once Bhagwan Vishnu was tired fighting war for more than ten thousand year's. Tired,he wanted to take rest. He found a plain spot and lay down to sleep. Pic credit - Puneet sir
But this was not any ordinary sleep. It was Yog Nidra, where Vishnu slept for ages.He layed down with the bow placed upwards and his neck rested on the bow. Image
It so happened that Shiva, Brahma, Indra wanted to conduct a yagya, which would only be possible with Vishnu's help(He is also know as Yagya Narayan). They searched for him everywhere but he was nowhere to be found. Image

ALWAYS FEEL CONTENTED, SATISFIED AND FULFILLED(सन्तुष्टि, पुष्टी और तुष्टी) AS PARMATMA IS PROTECTING YOU MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY BOTH

Rig Ved 1.31.13

We always desire three things from Agnidev, they are Protection, Nourishment and Intelligence.

1/9 Image
From these three Yajman gets Satisfaction, Fulfilment and Contentment. Fulfilment denotes healthier body, Contentment means your inner thoughts are satisfied and Satisfaction denotes that you are complete in all senses. This was the Parmarthik overview.

2/9 Image
Now Practically thinking we can say that we can overcome the coming difficulties with Yagya & Worship.

त्वम॑ग्ने॒ यज्य॑वे पा॒युरंत॑रोऽनिषं॒गाय॑ चतुर॒क्ष इ॑ध्यसे।
यो रा॒तह॑व्योऽवृ॒काय॒ धाय॑से की॒रेश्चि॒न्मंत्रं॒ मन॑सा व॒नोषि॒ तं॥

Translation:-

त्वम् -You.

अग्ने - Agnidev.

ONE WHO REALISES THAT ATMA AND PARMATMA ARE ONE, ATTAINS PARMANAND(PERMANENT BLISSFULNESS).

Rig ved 1.31.12

It says that the thing that makes us recognise or that makes us see its sense,the power that it can give us, is actually

1/8
the strength of our Atma and indirectly Parmatma's Power. This strength enlightens our mind. It is through this medium that we can achieve the last aim of our life,that is Total surrender and happiness. Mind and intelligence are its tools.

2/8
Therefore here we talk of protecting these two in order to keep understanding our thoughts and intelligence.

त्वं नो॑ अग्ने॒ तव॑ देव पा॒युभि॑र्म॒घोनो॑ रक्ष त॒न्व॑श्च वंद्य ।
त्रा॒ता तो॒कस्य॒ तन॑ये॒ गवा॑म॒स्यनि॑मेषं॒ रक्ष॑माण॒स्तव॑ व्र॒ते ॥

त्वम् - You.
