This Navaratri, taking the Sankalpa to read Mahabharat in original Sanskrit along with Hindi Translation, thanks to Gita Press Edition ( Seeking the blessings of Devi to keep me healthy enough to complete it without a Vighna.
#Mahabharata In the forests of Naimisharanya, Ugrashrava - the son of Lomharshan Rishi, tells the Munis gathered for a Satra about Kalchakra - just like fruits and flowers appear with Ritu and merge back after it, so does everything at the end of a Kalpa.

'Science Behind Indian Calendar' is a workshop I conducted a lot this year, and then I chanced upon this poem by Rashtrakavi Ramdhari Singh Dinkar:
ये नव वर्ष हमे स्वीकार नहीं
है अपना ये त्यौहार नहीं
है अपनी ये तो रीत नहीं
है अपना ये व्यवहार नहीं
धरा ठिठुरती है सर्दी से
आकाश में कोहरा गहरा है
बाग़ बाज़ारों की सरहद पर
सर्द हवा का पहरा है
सूना है प्रकृति का आँगन
कुछ रंग नहीं , उमंग नहीं
हर कोई है घर में दुबका हुआ
नव वर्ष का ये कोई ढंग नहीं
चंद मास अभी इंतज़ार करो
निज मन में तनिक विचार करो
नये साल नया कुछ हो तो सही

Started reading Jyotishtatvank of Gita Press - a compilation of essays on Jyotish or Astrology.
Do you want me to share snippets of what I read?

#books #reading #astrology Graha Vandana - a lovely Stuti to all 9 planets. If you can understand the words used to describe the Grahas, you understand a lot of Jyotish. It covers their lineage, their personality, their svabhav and their place. Image

DELHI WE HARDLY KNOW - a thread based on the book ' Delhi - City of Yoginis ( '. Read it 10 years ago and again now. Sharing some snippets. You can read my earlier review here -…

#books #Delhi @msignca @ICCR_Delhi @MinOfCultureGoI Delhi was once called Yoginipur, it is one of the 11 names of the city mentioned in scriptures. One Yogini temple survives in the city - Yogmaya Temple behind Qutub Minar -… Aurganzeb could not destroy it, he tried though.
