#Thread on unfolding mysteries of Padmanabhaswamy temple.
There are many mysterious things in this world. #Padmanabhaswamy temple is one of them. It is situated in Kerala. There are 6 chambers in this temple. The first attempt to open those chambers was made in 1908.
It is said that when an attempt was made to open the first chamber of the temple, a lot of cobras came out there. And because of that the door could not be opened. Then in 1931, a second attempt was made to open it.
In the year 1931, 'Mishra Haj' wrote a book named 'Guide to Travancore', in which it was told that when an attempt was made to open the first chamber of Padmanabhaswamy temple, many poisonous snakes came out of it and everyone had to leave it and run away.
The root of the term Sarasvati is sri (सृ)+ asun (असुन्)= saras (सरस्) meaning 'watery substance' + vati वती ie वतुप् स्त्री, meaning 'containing of' = sarasvati which means a lake, a pond, a large water body(stagnant).
The Rig-Veda describes Sarasvati as Devi in 1.3.10 :
“O Saraswati, You are the purifier (of our Intellect), and Your Strength (of Wisdom) grows within us with Sacrificial Offerings (inner and outer),May my offering in Yagnya strengthen Your Wisdom within me“
It also described Sarasvati as a river in 1.3.12-
“Saraswati, that Great Wave (of Universal Wisdom) (Who has flowed as a River) and Who is the awakener of our Intellect, is (now) shining as the embodiment of Universal Wisdom (in this Yagnya)”.
संस्कृत, जो की सभी भाषाओं की जननी है, वह भारत की 23 आधिकारिक भाषाओं में से एक है। भारत के सभी प्रांतीय भाषाओं मे संस्कृत शब्द प्राप्त होते है | यहां तक की बङ्ग्ला और दक्षिणभारत की सभी प्रान्तीय भाषाओं में अधिकांश शब्द संस्कृत भाषा के ही है। यह हिंदू धर्म की एक प्रचलित भाषा भी है।
संस्कृत जो कभी मुनियों और ऋषियों की भाषा थी, अब आधुनिक दुनिया को इस तरह से आकर्षित कर रही है कि विशेषज्ञों की राय है कि यह कंप्यूटर के साथ उपयोग के लिए सबसे अच्छी भाषा है। संस्कृत साहित्य मानव जाति के इतिहास का सबसे सरल साहित्य माना जाता है।
लेकिन क्या आपने कभी सोचा है कि इसकी उत्पत्ति क्या है? हमारा मानना है कि इसकी उत्पत्ति देवलोक से हुई है। लेकिन यह पृथ्वी पर कैसे फैल गई? आज हम उस बारे में चर्चा करने वाले हैं।
संस्कृत ऋग्वेद से पूर्व भी रही होगी लेकिन उसका कोई प्रमाण हमारे पास अभी तक नहीं है।
The Hoysales, an indigenous dynasty who ruled for three centuries over almost the whole of Karnataka, leaving a rich heritage of imperishable monuments of art and culture. Belur was their capital city which was later moved to Halebidu.
Early inscriptions, dated 1078 and 1090, have implied that the Hoysalas descended from the Yadava by referring to the Yadava vamsa (clan) as Hoysala vamsa. Records have yet to be found directly linking the Hoysalas to the Yadavas of North India.
The 11th century was a period of great prosperity in South India. At the time, the two major powers in the Deccan peninsula were- the 25-year-old Chalukya Kingdom capital in Kalyani (present-day Basavakalyan in Karnataka), & the 150-year-old Chola Kingdom with its capital in
JNU me protest

All incidents happened because of false assumptions, fake news etc & not for the valid reasons.
Motto- make people frustrated from traffic jams, violence to gain votes.
As opposition lacks to criticise govt on any valid issue, they are taking support of fake news and trying to trick people & make them believe, “congress was better than this, hence lets vote for them again”.
Since 2014 it is being said that-
1. Muslims are afraid of modi 2. Modi is facist 3. Modi will end up democracy 4. Modi is hitler 5. Modi controls media 6. modi did pulwama 7. Modi is building concentration camps for muslims. 8. Modi is against minority
But till now we haven’t got any proof for any such things
Jyoti means 'radiance' or ‘light’ & lingam means ‘Sign' of Shiva; Jyotir Lingam thus means the Radiant Sign of Shiva or you can say ‘Symbol of light’. These are special kind of shiv linga where the Shiva himself appeared during the
creation of the linga.
Shiva Purana deals with Jyothirlingas in details. It is believed that Shiva 1st manifested himself as a Jyotirlinga on the night of the Arudra festival. There are 12 jyotirlinga as per Adi Shankaracharya. However, it has been always a topic for research.
Some experts believe that jyotirlinga is like a nuclear reactor. Famous Historian Late P.N. Oak described 12 Molecular Enerfy Centre of Ancient India in Chapter 21 of First Block in his famous book "Vaidik Vishwa: Rasthra Ka Itihaas".
#Thread on "Kashi (Varanasi), From Birth to Death and Death to Moksha."
Located on the left bank of the Ganga, Varanasi is one of the 7 holy cities of the Hindus. According to the Vamana Purana, two rivers named Varuna and Assi originated since the beginning of the timei
The name Varanasi originates from the two tributaries of the Ganges, the Varuna &the Assi, which flows at its northern & southern boundaries. The land lying between them was named 'Varanasi'. Its original name was derived from the word 'Kashi', 'Kaasha', which means brightness.
By the way, kashi is mentioned in many Vedic literatures. Kaushitaki Upanishad mentioned about the places like Kashyas and Videhas. Ajatashatru has been declared as the ruler of Kashi or Videha in the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad. Apart from this, Kashi &Videha are also mentioned in
Hampi, a small village in Karnataka & according to the 2014 statistics, it is the most googled place of Karnataka. Although this village is already in ruins, but, it is still included in the UNESCO due to the extraordinary beauty of the temples & monuments.
Hampi is built on the banks of the Tungabhadra River. Its name was derived from the river 'Pampa' (who was the daughter of Brahma). In the Ramayana, there’s a mention of the Kishkindha kingdom, which initially belonged to bali & then sughriva, is actually today's Hampi.
According to history, Hampi was built during the reign of King Dev rai 2 (1422 - 1446 AD), one of the rulers of the Vijayanagara Empire. Many temple were expanded & enlarged during the reign of Krishnadev rai (1509 - 1529 A.D.), the most famous ruler of the Vijayanagara dynasty.
You still haven’t understand that you have lost the trust from people because of such lies. One can imagine if senior leader like u are using lies & edited videos to criticise the government, then god knows how much dirty politics other member have done or will do in the future.
#Thread on speed of light in terms of vedic measurement.
Galileo Galilee was among the first to try to measure the speed of light in the early 17th century. Today we know that the exact speed of light is defined as 29,97,92,458 metres per second (approximately 186000 mi/s).
But, when it comes to Indian prospect, there are many references about the speed of light much before the 17th century.
The speed of light is not directly from the Rigveda Samhita but It is given by a great Indian scholor Sāyaṇācārya, popularly known as Sayana.
Sayana was a sanskrit scholar under king Bukka Raya I and Harihara II of Vijaynagar empire in 14th century. His commentary on vedas are very famous and was translated from Sanskrit to English by Max Müller, himself.
Christianity and islam may be the largest religion of today’s world but Sanatan dharm has the largest religious monument in the world in the form of Angkor wat. It is situated in combodia and spread across over 400 acres / 1.6 km².
It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992, which encouraged an international effort to save the complex.
It was originally built as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu. In Khmer, the Cambodian language, Angkor means "city" and Wat means "temple grounds".
So Angkor Wat means "Temple City". Its original name was Vrah Vishnuloka or Parama Vishnuloka, meaning the sacred dwelling of Vishnu in Sanskrit.
But, it gradually turned into a Buddhist temple towards the end of the 12th century & is still used for worship today.
The word ’Tantra’ literally means ‘loom’ in Sanskrit. There are several differing explanations as to what this word means. According to one source, this name is supposed to be a pun, and in order to understand it, one has to first understand the word ‘sutra’.
The key texts of Hinduism are known as sutras, a word which also means ‘formula or thread’. Therefore, if a sutra is a single thread of thought, then Tantra would be the loom that produces these threads of thoughts into a whole system of thoughts.
As a comparison, another source suggests that Tantra is a combination of two words, ‘tattva’ and ‘mantra’, which mean the science of cosmic principles and the science of mystic sound and vibration respectively.
#Thread on farm Act and all its controversies.
Let us start with the controversies-
Is this act unconstitutional as it is being preached by many political parties?
There are two ways in which a law can be declared unconstitutional: substantive and procedural.
a. Substantive grounds are where the law itself is unconstitutional, which means the law is against the fundamental rights. Farm act is not about the fundamental rights.
b. Procedural grounds are where the way in which a law is enforced is unconstitutional.
Now, this give us two points where this law can be challenged-
I. If this act against the Federalism structure of India.
Federalism in India refers to relations between the Centre and the States of the Union of India.
Swastika (स्वस्तिक) = Su (सु) + Asti (अस्ति) + Ka(क)
• Su(सु) means Shubh(शुभ) i.e auspicious or welfare
• Asti(अस्ति) means be/happen or exist. It stand for power or existence.
• Ka(क) stands for doer or performer i.e Karta(कर्ता)
So, Swasti means Be Auspicious or Be Welfare
and Swastika means Auspicious/Welfare Doer.
It is also believed to be a symbol of good, auspicious and welfare from ancient times.
The journey of Swastika from its origin to today's world is filled with mysteries and
broken links of evidences spread over different ages of civilization.
According to a research published by IIT kharagpur-
“The Vedas also have a mention of various forms of Swastika. 1.89.6 of Rig Veda, gives a brief introduction of Swastika in the cosmos,
Hinduism tell us that there is an infinite cycle of birth and death. Moksha is the liberation of the atman from the cycles of birth and death. It also means permanent liberation from the bondage and Samsara, i.e. complete Freedom.
It's said who attains Moksha never has to return in Samsara and becomes free. So, unlike Samsara which is subjected to continuous changes, Moksha is considered eternal, free from suffering and bondage. That's why Moksha is believed to be ultimate goal.
According to Katha Upanishad 1.3.7 & 1.3.8:
यस्त्वविज्ञानवान् भवत्यमनस्कः सदाऽशुचिः ।
न स तत् पदमाप्नोति संसारं चाधिगच्छति ।।
But whoso is devoid of a discriminating intellect, possessed of an unrestrained mind & is ever impure, does not attain that goal, but goes to samsara.
River Yamuna, the second most sacred river of India and Hinduism, originates in Yamunotri which is situated at the western side of Garhwal Himalayas, in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand and about 3,293 metres above the sea level.
In Rig ved and Atharva Veda, Yamuna is called Yami (lady of life).
In Puranas, Goddess Yamuna has been mentioned as the daughter of Surya, the sun god and twin sister of Yama – the god of death. Yama and Yami are believed to be the first human beings on earth by some.
As per the Ramayana, Hanuman doused the fire of his tail after burning Lanka in the waters of Yamuna at Banderpooch.
The Mahabharat says that since Yamuna is one of the 7 tributaries of river Ganga, drinking its waters will absolve the sins of the pilgrim.
