Pati Parameshwar 🙏🏼
The Lost Tradition
Husband is the most worshippable deity for his wife. He for her is God.The Patistotra says:

Namah brahmaswarupaya satipraanapraya cha/ Namasyaaya cha pujyaaya hridhadhaaraya te namah//Patir brahma patirvishnur patireva maheswarah/patischa nirgunaadharo tasmai sri pataye namah
Which means that for wife, husband is God. He is worshipable and Namasya.He is Brahmaa, Vishnu and Shiva for the wife.

(Ref: Omkarnath Rachanavali, vol 6, page 322-323)
We know that Swami Vivekananda mentioned, the ideals of the Indian women are Sita, Savitri and Damayanti.They all were very very respecful to their husbands.Devi Sati left Her body when Her father uttered ugly words about Her husband Shiva.
The 51 Shaktipeethas are created out of Her body and so each represent the importance of Pati-bhakti in our tradition.

Marriage of the girls is considered equivalent to upanayana of the brahmin.
Now coming to respecting wife : According to Sri Sri Durga-Saptasati, popularly known as Sri Sri Chandi, all women are forms of the Divine Mother("striyah samasraa sakalaa jagatsu" in mantra 6, chapter 11).

So from this viewpoint, all can/should pay respect to any woman.
Sri Ramakrishna worshipped His wife as the Divine Mother.

The Upanishads were 'appended' to the vedas is a misunderstanding.

The Upanishads are part of and included in each veda. They are at the end of each veda. 'anta' as is vedanta means the concluding or the culmination - it does not mean append. Image
The vedas are generally broken up into two different ways. The first is to break them between the Karmakanda and the Jnanakanda. By following the karmakanda one is able to attain material prosperity and the heavens after death. The Jnanakanda leads one to Brahman, to liberation.
Not everyone wants liberation, many people want material happiness and to go to the heavens.

Each veda has two sections, the mantra (samhita) and the brahmana (dealing with the rules for worship, mantra meanings, etc.).

Narayana Vajrakavach

मार्कण्डेय उवाच
नारायणं परब्रह्म सर्वकारण कारकं
प्रपद्ये वेङ्कटेशाख्यां तदेव कवचं मम
सहस्रशीर्षा पुरुषो वेङ्कटेशश्शिरो वतु
प्राणेशः प्राणनिलयः प्राणाण् रक्षतु मे हरिः
आकाशराट् सुतानाथ आत्मानं मे सदावतु
देवदेवोत्तमोपायाद्देहं मे वेङ्कटेश्वरः
सर्वत्र सर्वकालेषु मङ्गाम्बाजानिश्वरः
पालयेन्मां सदा कर्मसाफल्यं नः प्रयच्छतु
य एतद्वज्रकवचमभेद्यं वेङ्कटेशितुः
सायं प्रातः पठेन्नित्यं मृत्युं तरति निर्भयः

इति श्री वेङ्कटेस्वर वज्रकवचस्तोत्रं सम्पूर्णम् ॥

Sumangali / Suhagan

Sumangali scores high value in Indian women's life. In India , there is huge importance given to mangal Sutra. The moment a man ties a woman the mangal Sutra it means that a woman will take the responsibility of protecting her husband from against odds
"Mangalyam tantunanena mama jeevana hetuna 
kanthe bandhami subhaage twam jeeva sarada shatam"

(BG) I'm trying this sacred thread around your neck, which is essential for my long life. May we have many auspicious attributes for a long and happy life for a hundred years ImageImageImage
The mangal Sutra is said to give protection (Deergh Aayu) to the husband apart from the usual wows taken. i.e why a south woman doesn't remove mangalsutra untimely from her neck. The neck on which she wears represents the coiled snake neck. Image

Manifestation is nothing Nitya Sankalp Puja 🙏🏼

The concept of Sankalp in nitya pujas is s very strong way to stay determined, positive and get the desired results by attracting the natures positive auras. This process is practiced since the vedic times.

PC: Shri S Rajam
The west has gained enough by understanding the power of the same. Now let us understand how this process goes about. Believers should definetly practice this during Nitya Puja in proper way. The process of manifestation is glorified by Yoga too
The vedic way of doing it bear more benefits and early fruits. A puja always combines panchabhoota tatvas which perfectly makes a true connection with the entire cosmos too for the process fo be more strong. Lighting Deeya influences this process. Gods communicate through Fire.

An Evening Satsang:

When Lord Krishna returned home after the battle of Mahabharata, his wife Rukmani confronted him.

“How could you be party to the killing of Guru Drona and Bheeshma, who were such righteous people and had a lifetime of righteousness behind them.” 1/n
Initially Lord Krsna avoided her questions but when she did not relent, he replied “No doubt they had a lifetime of rightousness behind them but they both had committed one single sin that destroyed all their lifetime of righteousness”

Rukmani asked “And what was that sin?”
Lord Krsna replied “They were both present in the court when a lady (Draupadi) was being disrobed and being elders they had the authority to stop it but they did not.

This single crime is enough to destroy all righteousness of this world”

Rukmani asked “But what about Karna?
