On days when the moon is full, its vibration, its feel, is very different than on other days. For a spiritual seeker, this day is like a boon from nature. Earlier, #Gurupurnima was among the most important festive occasions in the country. Over time, it got relegated to the
background due to ignorance and so fewer people were aware of its great significance. However, it is now coming back slowly into prominence with more seekers looking for spiritual guidance. Guru Purnima is the day the first guru was born. Once upon a time, Shiva attained and went
into intense ecstatic dance on the Himalayas. When we say Shiva, in the yogic culture, we do not refer to him as a god. He is seen as the Adiyogi, or the first yogi. When his ecstasy became beyond movement, he became still. When it allowed him some movement, he danced wildly.

Agni Puran states that only oil or Ghee (clarified butter) be used in the lamp. In spiritual terms the lamp with Ghee is more spiritually pure than the oil lamp. Generally the use of oil is more prevalent than Ghee. The oil lamp kindles longer in comparison to the ghee lamp.
The oil lamp attracts sattvik vibrations spread over a distance of 1 meter while the ghee lamp can attract vibrations spread all over. When the oil lamp stops burning the sattvik impact in the atmosphere is enhanced and lasts for half an hour, whereas for the ghee lamp it is
experienced even after four hours. The oil lamp is effective in ceaning of Muladhar and Swadhishthan Chakra only to certain extent, while the ghee lamp purifies Manipur and Anahat chakras to a significant extent.

Are we eating right? Because what we eat we become. The food we eat nourishes our body, but there is much more than nourishment. Our Vedic scriptures distinguish food into three categories based on its effect on our body on the physical and mental level. Understanding the food ImageImage
we intake is necessary to ensure it benefits our body. Food in Sanatan Dharma is not just “any nutritious substance that people or animals eat or drink or that plants absorb in order to maintain life and growth”.

According to the Vedic scriptures, food is beyond what is eaten
through the mouth and digested by the body. In Sanatan Dharma, food is understood to affect one’s thoughts, emotions, and mind, and food can lead to God-realization. Food is distributed into three categories in Vedic Culture: Sattvic, Rajas, & Tamasic.BA Sattvic diet

During the month of Shravan, the Vata component of a person gets higher in proportion. During that period, a person must avoid food that increases the Vata component. For example, green leafy vegetable contain higher amounts of Vata in them.
Thus a person is asked to avoid them during the rainy season (especially Shravan month) to avoid the ailments caused due to excess of Vata.
During the rainy season, the cattle also eat lots of green grass, and hence their milk is high in Vata and, in modern times, is succeptible
to viral infections. Hence, milk is considered harmful during the Shravan month. Thus Ayurved advices us against consuming milk during Shravan. Sanatan Dharma says “Feed to others only what you can eat for yourself (Which means, do not offer to others what you will never consume)

Do you know who formulated the Pythagoras Theorem? You must be thinking about Pythagoras, but if we tell you that it was formulated even before the mathematician stated. The Baudhayana Sulba Sutra in Yajur Veda defines that the area of the diagonal is equal to the sum of the area
of the perpendicular and base side. It is widely believed that Baudhayana was a priest and also an architect of very high principles. It is possible that Baudhayana’s interest in Mathematical calculations stemmed more from his work in religious matters rather than an enthusiasm
for mathematics as a subject itself. Undoubtedly he wrote the Sulbasutra to provide rules for religious rites, and it would appear almost certain that Baudhayana himself was a Vedic priest. The Sulbasutras is like a guide to the Vedas which formulate rules for constructing altars

Do you know Virupaksha temple at Hampi is one of the best practical examples of science? In this Hampi temple, you can see the gopuram’s inverted image in one of the rooms in the temple. Isn't it quite marvelous to see how advanced our ancestors were in science and technology? ImageImage
The shadow of the tower of Virupaksha Temple falls inverted inside the wall of the temple through a lens-like hole structure. It is called Pinhole Camera System or camera obscura effect.

A shadow usually forms when an object blocks the path of light. However, the object should
be opaque because transparent and translucent objects do no block the path completely.

As of the temple, when the light falls on the gopuram (object), it blocks light forming shadow. The shadow would have formed in front of the gopuram, but our ancestors were smart enough
