#HarHarMahadev to one & all!

Auspicious occasion of #𝗠𝗮𝗵𝗮𝘀𝗵𝗶𝘃𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗿𝗶𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟭 is just a day away.

Let's learn 𝟭𝟬 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗳𝗮𝗰𝘁𝘀 about
👉God #Shiva
👉Significance of #Mahashivratri
👉#Rudraksha etc.
in this informative thread

𝟭. 𝗪𝗼𝗿𝗱 #𝗦𝗵𝗶𝘃𝗮 (शिव) has been derived by reversing letters of the word ‘vash’ (वश्). Vash means to enlighten; hence, one who enlightens is Shiva. He illuminates the universe.

𝟮. 𝗗𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝘄𝗵𝘆 𝗚𝗼𝗱 #𝗦𝗵𝗶𝘃𝗮 𝗶𝘀 𝗲𝗻𝘃𝗲𝗹𝗼𝗽𝗲𝗱 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗮𝘀𝗵 𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗼𝘂𝗿?

Its difficult for devotees to tolerate the intense vibrations of God Shiva’s original white colour. So, the envelope


@mariawirth1 @TheSanatanUday
𝟯. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 #𝗦𝗵𝗿𝘂𝗻𝗴𝗮𝗱𝗮𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗮𝗻 ?

👉Take darshan of Nandi before that of #Shiva pindi

This is known as "Shrungadarshan"

A. One should sit or stand on right side of Nandi & place left hand on Nandi’s testicles


B. Place forefinger (finger next to the thumb) and the thumb on the two horns of Nandi. Now, view the linga through the frame thus created by the finger, thumb & the horns.

Do not stand or sit between the pindi and the Idol of Nandi while having darshan


𝟰. 𝗛𝗼𝘄 𝘁𝗼 𝗮𝗰𝘁𝘂𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝗱𝗮𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗮𝗻 𝗼𝗳 #𝗦𝗵𝗶𝘃𝗮 𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗱𝗶 ?

Do not stand or sit between the pindi and the Idol of Nandi while having darshan, but stand on the side of the Idol of Nandi while having darshan.



5. Interesting facts about #𝗥𝘂𝗱𝗿𝗮𝗸𝘀𝗵𝗮

Adorning a rudraksha-mala while worshipping #Shiva, is ideal. Followers of Natha & Vama sects & Kapaliks especially use it

Rudraksha is one that has the ability to wipe our tears and provide happiness

𝟲. #𝗥𝘂𝗱𝗿𝗮𝗸𝘀𝗵𝗮 𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗲 : Its found at height or depth of 3000 meters above or below sea level. Rudraksha tree grows in a narrow opening, not on plain ground. It yields 1K to 2K fruits annually
👉Ascetics in Himalayas survive only on these fruits.

𝟳. 𝗛𝗼𝘄 #𝗥𝘂𝗱𝗿𝗮𝗸𝘀𝗵𝗮 𝗶𝘀 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗺𝗲𝗱 ?

#Rudraksha's fruits ripen on the tree & drop from it during winter. Its seeds dry up. Each fruit has 15 to 16 seeds (that is, rudrakshas). More the seeds, smaller is their size and less is their price.

𝟵. 𝗦𝗶𝗴𝗻𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗼𝗳 #𝗠𝗮𝗵𝗮𝘀𝗵𝗶𝘃𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗿𝗶𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟭

𝟭𝟬. #𝗠𝗮𝗵𝗮𝘀𝗵𝗶𝘃𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗿𝗶𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟭 𝘃𝗿𝗮𝘁

Finally, let's learn on how to observe #Mahashivratri2021 vrat as per current difficult times.

A. Due to the restrictions imposed to curb the spread of Corona pandemic, those who cannot visit a #Shiva temple should worship #Shivaling at their home.

B. If #Shivaling is not available, one should worship the picture of Deity #Shiva.

C. If picture of Deity Shiva is also not available, then one should draw a picture of Shivaling or Deity Shiva on a platform for the worship.


D. If none of the above is feasible, then one can write Deity Shiva’s chant #ॐ_नमः_शिवाय ।‘ and worship it.

E. Mental worship : An important principle in spirituality is that subtle is superior to gross. Also, subtle is more powerful than the gross.


This is similar to saying that atomic bomb is more powerful than an ordinary bomb in scientific parlance. As per this principle, if physical worship of Deity #Shiva isn't possible, one can also worship Him mentally

Shubh #Mahashivratri2021 to one & all!

O Hindus, enlighten yourself regarding

👉Spiritual characteristics of God #Shiva
👉Family of God Shiva
👉Shiva’s Mission
👉Forms of God #Shiva

and many other things

Large Thread but a MUST READ for every "patriotic" Indian...

#VeerSavarkar a name that epitomises -

Indomitable spirit to overcome anything, literally anything

Sheer love for motherland

& what not...

Here, we explain did वीर सावरकर really plead the British to forgive him

+ Image
Remember the terrible days of #Andaman Cellular jail where political prisoners were so inhumanely tortured that some even succumbed to death.

Upon that, #VeerSavarkar was dealt more horribly than others... This entire episode may be taken on an another day...

+ ImageImage
Well, let's see what were the underlying circumstances when the world was on the brink of world war 1 (WW1) which actually made #VeerSavarkar to think to write a letter to the British in Sept. 1914...

As Britain was an integral part of WW1, वीर सावरकर thought this is + Image

Just Imagine!

Suddenly you are threatened to kill and told to leave your house, property, motherland and your wife, mother & sisters.

Yes, this happened 31 years ago with our Kashmiri Hindus

They became refugees in their own country!


Thousands of these #KashmiriHindus perished in exile hoping to return to their homeland, but there are no homes to return !

😞 Elderly still leading impoverished lives !

😞 Childhood is spent in puny & squalid camps !


No outcry from ANYONE!
Injustice Anywhere is a Threat to Justice Everywhere !

In 1990..
Infants & Kids
Young boys & girls
Married Men & Women
Elderly Men & Women
Even Cows & Cattle

All were either killed or forced to leave !
After 31 years now, still living like migrants!

Hardline Anti-national agenda converted into web series whose sole motive is to shame Hinduism, promote communalism, racism & what not.

Negative portrayal of Hindus is not just a trend, it’s a nexus, aimed at demeaning Hindus at all costs & by all means!

A thread

We saw first two episodes of this @PrimeVideoIN web series.

Care is taken in the minutest detail to display India as a typical #Islamophobic country wherein the political system kills Muslims.

@KapilMishra_IND @GemsOfBollywood @SecularBolly @Ramesh_hjs

A close aid of prime minister's son asks police to kill 3 Muslim youth namely - Ayub, Saleem, Imran who are protesting in a farmer strike.

Accordingly, Ayub & Saleem are killed by police.

Imran goes to his college amidst the strike & is saved.

History of this dark day dates back to the immediate week following independence of Pakistan in August 1947.

Let's look at it in this twitter thread.

🇵🇰 precipitated war by launching tribal lashkar (militia) from Waziristan in an effort to capture Kashmir

1/n ImageImage
The Pakistani Army prepared a plan called "Operation Gulmarg" & put it into action as early as 20 August 1947.

20 lashkars (tribal militia) each consisting of 1000 Pashtun tribesmen were to be recruited & were to be armed by first week of September


2/n Image

Lashkars were expected to reach launching point Abbottabad on October 18 & cross into J&K on 22nd

👉10 of 20 lashkars were expected to attack Kashmir Valley through Muzaffarabad

👉Other 10 to join rebels in Poonch, Bhimber etc with view to advance to Jammu
