Lessons From The Upanishads

A collection of valuable lessons from the Upanishads.

The stream of tendencies flowing through good and evil channels is to be directed by self-effort along the good path. When it has entered the evil path, it is to be turned towards the good path. (Muktikopanishad, II.V. 6)

The heavens are His head; the sun and moon, His eyes; the quarters, His ears; the revealed Vedas, His speech; the wind is His breath; the universe, His heart. From His feet is produced the earth. He is indeed the inner Self of all beings.’ (Mundaka Upanishad 2:1:4 – describes the cosmic man)
He has turned his eyes inward (aavritta chakshu), his vision takes a U-turn because he wants to attain immortality. – The mind of a seeker in Katha Upanishad.





May the Lord, who is one and undivided, but who by virtue of His multiple powers creates these endless, diversities in the beginning without any definite end in view and who destroys the universe in the end, endow us with wholesome intelligence.  (Shvetashvatara Upanisha…

Brahma Granthi Knot – Meaning – Importance And How To Unknot

Brahma Granthi in spiritual terms means the knot of ignorance. Granthi in Sanskrit means is a gland or a knot. Brahma is the God of creation. In Katha Upanishad (II.2.15) and Mundaka Upanishad (II.2.8), it is called hridaya granthi (knot in the heart), and it is said that, “realization of the Supreme Reality cuts the knot of ignorance in the heart.” The word heart here means buddhi (intellect), which is the abode of ignorance as well as knowledge.

In Hatha Yoga three knots of ignorance are recognized, namely Brahma Granthi (the knot of Brahma), Vishnu Granthi (the knot of Vishnu) and Rudra Granthi (the knot of Shiva). 
They are situated, respectively, in the three energy centers (called lotuses) at the heart (called Anahata chakra), thorat (called Vishuddhi Chakra) and eyebrows (called ajna chakra).
These energy centers and knots are closed in all ignorant beings. They are opened by a rigorous practice of breath control, i.e, pranayama.
As described in Hatha Yoga Pradipika (IV 70-76)…

Talking Gods Of Raj Rajeshwari Tripura Sundari Temple At Buxar In Bihar - Hindu Temple Miracle

Scientists, secularists, skeptics, atheists and devotees all are unable to explain about the unnatural phenomenon of gods talking at night at Raj Rajeshwari Tripura Sundari at Buxar in Bihar. Various sounds are heard at night from the temple. Devotees and locals believe that the deities in temple talk to each other at night.

What is even more baffling is that the sounds are heard only when there is no living being in the vicinity of the temple. So it is during night that the sounds are heard.


Raj Rajeshwari Tripura Sundari was built around 400 years ago. It is tantric temple dedicated to various forms of Goddess Shakti. Main deity worshipped in the temple is Raj Rajeshwari Tripura Sundari. Various forms of Mother Goddess Shakti including Goddess Tripura, Dhoomavati, Bagalamukhi, Tara, Kali, Chinnamasta, Shodashi, Matangi, Kamala, Ugra Tara and Bhuvaneshwari are worshipped here.

Thoughts – Teachings on Vairagya Concept in Hinduism – Swami Brahmeshananda

Vairagya is one of the most important values for spiritual life. As a matter of fact, no spiritual life is ever possible without it. Swami Brahmeshananda shares his thoughts and teachings on Vairagya.

The Sanskrit word vairagya is translated variously. Swami Vivekananda translates it as non-attachment. Swami Turiyananda in his translation of Vivekachudamani has equated it with renunciation. The other meaning is dispassion. Instead of vairagya, Sri Ramakrishna preferred to use the word tyaga, which means renunciation.

In his Yoga Sutras Patanjali considers it, along with abhyasa, as a mighty weapon for the control of thought waves.

It is also one of the sadhana chatushtaya or four basic qualifications for an adhikari, a person competent for Self-knowledge. Of these four qualifications, Shankaracharya considers vairagya or renunciation, and mumukshatva or desire for liberation, as most important.

Although vairagya is an important value, it never arises in most of the people in the world…

Bichiya Toe Ring – Religious Significance In Hinduism

Bichiya is a small ring worn on the second or long toe by married Hindu women, particularly in North, Central and Western parts of India. It is of great religious significance in Hinduism. Bichiya toe ring is worn at the time of marriage and it signifiesa Hindu woman’s state of marital happiness.

In certain Hindu communities, this toe ring is removed when the woman’s husband dies. The toe in which this ring is worn, and also the number of rings worn, vary with communities and regions, but what remains consistent is the fact that this ring is given by the maternal uncle at the time of marriage.
Bichiya is made of silver; unlike the mangalsutra which is either wholly made of gold or has a gold pendant.
The bichiya is either a plain ring or it may have floral filigree on top. The gift of the toe ring is an offshoot of the joint family tradition in Hindu society.
Curiously enough, in some regions of India where it is essential for a married Hindu woman to wear a bichia, the manga sutra (…
