Someshwar Jyotirlinga and the Four Vedas

Someshwar Jyotirlinga is said to have existed from time immemorial. It is very holy as Shiva is believed to have appeared in the form of blazing column of fire (Jyotirlinga). It is believed that the Jyotirlinga establishes itself in each of the four Vedas at different times of the day.
Shiva stated in the Puranas that the Shivling at Someshwar establishes itself in the Rig Veda in the morning, Yajur Veda at noon, Sama Veda in the afternoon and Atharva Veda in the evening.
It is believed that during ancient times, Somnath existed at the mouth of Sarasvati River – the spot where Saraswati River entered the sea.
Another holiness of Somnath is that the sacred place is divided into three parts – each part is dedicated to one of the Trimurti – Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
Thus those who live in Somnath achieve liberation from cycle of birth and death.

Indriya Nigraha – the control of senses in Hinduism

Indriya Nigraha is the most important prerequisite for spiritual development in Hinduism. Indriya Nigraha means the control of the senses. How to perform Indriya Nigraha; and why it is mandatory is mentioned Hindu scriptures like Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads and Yogasutra of Patanjali. It is one of the basic requirements for a peaceful and prosperous life on earth.

Indriya Nigraha involves the control of both internal and external senses.

The internal senses arise in the mind and are due to false identification of the soul, ignorance and lack of proper guidance. The internal senses are desire, lust, anger, egotism, strength and pride. Sama is the control of these senses.

Dirt can be removed from water by a pu…
