176 yrs old Hanuman Das Baba: A living Sant (saint) of Vrindavan, who may be one of the oldest living Sant on earth

An Article by Jahnava Nitai Das
he wrote - Once I asked this Baba how old he was. He Replied he could not remember his age, but recalled that he was 12 yrs
old when Jhansi Rani fought the British. You can deduce his age from that. Jhansi Rani fought the British in 1857, so he would be around 170 years old.( in 2014)

He mentioned to me that he had grown a second set of teeth after all of his teeth had fallen out,
something that happens to some people after 100 years.I have seen and heard of some other babas who also grew second sets of teeth after 100 years.

When young,Hanuman Das left his home and came to Vrindavan to become a devotee of Shri Krishna.He founded a wonderful goshala there
where 1,000 cows are currently being served and protected. When he was a child, his mother was a servant of the queen of Jhansi, who died in 1858.

The ashram of this Baba is located along the Vrindavan parikrama path, a short distance from the Krishna Balarama Mandir.
He stays in a tiny room, just a few feet wide. Whenever you visit Vrindavan, please take the opportunity to meet this rare living Sant. You will be amazed by his simplicity and humility.

What Is The Significance Of The Snake Around Bhagwan Shiva's Neck!

The snake represents the Ahamkara (ego).When we poke a snake, it recoils instantly and spreads its hood to attack us

Similarly, when someone says something that we don't wish to hear,our ego spontaneously reacts
This ego lies inside the human body whereas,in the Gods and the Goddesses, the ego becomes powerless. It doesn't affect them because they govern it.
Hence, Bhagwan Shiv uses this Ahamkara as an ornament because it doesn't find space within his body.
Bhagwan monitors the Ahamkara or the ego that otherwise makes us hollow from within.

Shiva is also known as Vairagi, meaning he is above the mundane world. He doesn't fear anything as he is above all emotions. A snake that is deadliest to us

Back in the day, Air India was a huge collector of art. In 1967, the airline asked Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dali to create something, Dali agreed but for payment, he wanted a baby elephant and they accepted it.

#AirIndia #artwork #porcelain
Dali ended up creating an ashtray for the airline. The ashtray was composed of swans that if flipped upside down, it becomes elephant heads. The top of the ashtray was enclosed with a snake. Only around 500 of these were produced and they were presented to special passengers and
friends of Air India around the world.

Air India flew a two-year old baby elephant from Bangalore to Geneva, and from there it was driven by truck to the village of Cadaqués in Spain where it was presented to Dali by two Indian women in saris and the Indian elephant caretaker.

अष्ट सिद्धि नव निधि के दाता ।
अस वर दीन्ह जानकी माता ।।

“अष्ट सिद्धि” कौन सी हैं वो अष्‍ट सिद्धियां जिनके दाता महाबली हनुमान बताए गए हैं!

तुलसीदास जी द्वारा लिखी गई हनुमान चालीसा के इस दोहे को आपने न जाने कितनी बार सुना और दोहराया होगा

#JaiShaniDev #JaiShreeRam 🙏🏻🚩
तुलसीदास जी बताते हैं कि हनुमान जी आठ सिद्धियों से संपन्न हैं.

श्रीहनुमान रुद्र के ग्यारहवें अवतार हैं. वे कई गुणों, सिद्धियों और अपार बल के स्वामी हैं. इस चौपाई के अनुसार यह ‘अष्टसिद्धि’ माता सीता के आशीर्वाद से श्रीहनुमान जी को अपने भक्तों तक पहुंचाने को भी मिली है
इन शक्तियों के प्रभाव से ही हनुमानजी ने लंका को ऐसा उजाड़ा कि महाबली रावण न केवल दंग रह गया बल्कि उसका घमंड भी चूर हो गया.

ये हैं वे आठ सिद्धियां और उनसे होने वाले चमत्कारों का वर्णन

(1) अणिमा (2) महिमा (3) गरिमा (4) लघिमा (5) प्राप्‍ति (6) प्राकाम्‍य (7) ईशित्‍व (8) वशित्‍व ।

The Navaratri of Ashwina as per Shrimad Devi Bhagawatam is dedicated to Mother Goddess Chandika.

Maa Chandi is Bramhavidyarupa, the transcendental self of universal consciousness. Her energy expansions are known as these three forms. Chandi alone is all three of them.
As MAA DURGA - she gives birth to all life and also the protector and granter of health, well-being and strength.

As Maa LAKSHMI - she is the nourisher of cosmos, creates materialism and bondage from her Maya, sustains the consciousness of a being in a physical body.
