Let's look at 3 important rituals associated with Bhogi Panduga :-

~ Bhogi Mantalu

~ Bhogi Pallu

~ Muggulu

Bhogi Mantalu :
Mantalu is the telugu word for Fire, On Bhogi day, early morning before sunrise, a bonfire is set in front of the house. This bonfire is called Image
'Bhogi Mantalu' in Telugu. this is set either ndividually by each household or set at the community level. Dry Cow dung cakes, Cow ghee, Banyan, Peepal & Neem tree wood were used in Bonfire, This holy smoke will purify the environment by their medicinal properties. Image
"Nearly 10grams of Cow ghee will release 1 ton of Oxygen" nto the air” ; by inhaling this air, the disease causing germs which are widely spread during the winter will be destroyed. This air will detox the body by cleansing 72,000 nerves. Scientifically this fire will raise our Image
body temperature & kill diseases causing germs in the body. All the people will get health benefits with this bonfire !

Bhogi Muggulu :
Muggulu is the Telugu word for ‘floral designs on the floor’, they are special attraction and are done with intrinsic devotional & artistic Image
way. It brings welfare to the family or home by eradicating the evil forces without attacking. It’s design has significance attached to it. The lines drawn are considered as the fear to evils that is why most of the Muggu’s have a design of star. A dot of rangoli has got Image
capability of changing negative thoughts to positive thoughts.The rounded design of rangoli creates a positive energy in the humans bringing down their negative energy levels.
Muggullu usually attracts the first sight of a visitor to the home, so we draw complex designs of Image
as it is usually and so the negative energies get struck in that complexity and fail entering the house.

People feel good before entering a house and exit good after leaving the house.

Bhogi Pallu :
Pallu or Phalalu is the telugu word for fruits
Bhogi Pallu is special ritual Image
where all fruits and coins are collected & showered on the heads of small children to protect them from negative forces.This ritual will bring happiness, good fortune & success.Mixture of Jujube or Indian date, gooseberries, small sugarcane pieces and rice are used in showering.
People believe that Indian date is the favourite fruit for Lord Lakshmi Narayana. By showering these fruits on heads will acquire blessings of the god.

Celebrate Preserve & Pass on to next generation ; tell your kids & the young how
great we are culturally & scientifically. Nothing comes close to our Hindu festivals & rituals.
Tell them the inferiority complex in them is cultivated by westerners & their Distorians for they can neither digest nor achieve our Superiority!
Tell them to celebrate with Pride!🙏 Image

మకర సంక్రాంతి ఉత్సవం - Mākāra saṅkrānti utsavaṁ

।। ऊँ ह्रां ह्रीं ह्रौं सः सूर्याय नमः।।

Đ word 'Sankranti' literally means 'movement'.
Almost all Hindu festivals are dependent on the position of d moon; however,Mākāra Sankrāntī is based on the position of the Sun.

#Thread ImageImage
There are twelve Sankrantis in a year. These are twelve days in a year when the Sun moves from one constellation to another. From Makar Sankranti, Sun starts moving towards the North direction which is also known as Uttarayana.
The sun on this day ends it's southward journey, ImageImage
that is dakshinayan, and starts moving northwards ie uttarayan, Hence, the festival precisely denotes the movement of the Sun into Makar zodiac. Uttarayana is regarded as the period of Divinity.
On the day of Makar Sankranti festival, the duration of the day and that of the night ImageImage

II Sri Adi Śaṅkarācārya - श्री आदि शङ्कराचार्य II
Sōpānaṁ : 11 Meeting Govinda Bhagavatpāda :

सर्व-वेदान्त-सिद्धांत-गोचरं तमगोचरमतमगोचरम।
गोविन्दम परमनान्दम सद्गगुरुम प्रणतोस्म्यहम॥

As Śaṅkarā walked on enquiring the whereabouts of Govinda Bhagavatpāda, the sadhus of Ōṃkārēśvar praised the glory of the Brahmanishtha in superlative terms, reminiscent of the Upanishadic mantra, which says ‘people view with wonder the ‘Brahmajnani’. They showed Śaṅkarā the
cave where he lived. It was in the middle of a hill in a village near Ōṃkārēśvar. Here & there ‘sanyasis’ were found engaged in ‘Sadhana’ & ‘Sastravichara’. Śaṅkarā felt the peace of Brahmanirvana filling the entire area. A Brahmavid is not simply a knower of Brahman, but

12 Centuries apart ; in late 19th Century he instilled a pride among Hindus of being a Hindu ;
He thundered 'Arise' 'Awake' !
He was the chief force behind the strengthening & revival of Sanātana dharma!
If then it was Adi Śaṅkarācārya ; Now It was Swami Vivekananda !

त्रयीमयायः त्रिगुणात्मधारिणे
{आपः सूक्तम्}

"I bow to the Savitr who is the Eye of the world, the reason for creation, sustenance and destruction of the universe, the embodiment of three Gunas and the holder of the power of the Trimurtis - Image
Virinja (Brahma), Narayana and Shankara."
If we carefully go through the ancient Indian literature, we will find that prayer to the Sun occupies most prominence, Sandhyā Vandanam being one, albeit important element. The celebrated Aruna Praśnaḥ (also known as Sūrya Namaskāram), Image
