Agnihotra Ritual to Prevent Nuclear Radiation Effects - Vedic Havan

Agnihotra is a small sacrificial fire performed at sunrise and sunset along with the recitation of a mantra. Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF) confirms that the Vedic sacrificial fire called Agnihotra does mitigate the effect of nuclear radiation. Agnihotra provides more protection when performed by a person who is at a higher level of spiritual consciousness. Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF) states
“Any nuclear detonation creates discordant black waves of sound energy, undetectable by the human eye and ear, that travel through the environment”, says Ana Prodanović of SSRF. “The simple Agnihotra ritual counters these black waves with positive reddish waves generated by the Agnihotra fire. This neutralises devastation caused by thermal radiation.”
While Agnihotra has the capacity to protect from thermal radiation and radioactive fallout, it may not be able to protect a person outside the blast radius from all forms of radiation. The level of protection it provides…

Narad Jayanti 2017 date

Narad Jayanti is observed as the birth anniversary of Devarishi Narad. Sage Narad is one of the Prajapatis and also one of the great seven Rishis. Narad Jayanti 2017 date is May 11. It is observed on the day after Purnima (full moon day) in Vaishakh month (April – May).

Some of the hymns in Rig Veda are credited to Narada Maharishi. For majority Hindus, Sage Narad is the Veena holding Sanyasi who creates trouble often with a positive intention or for the betterment of the universe.

It is believed that Sage Narad appeared from the forehead of Lord Brahma. Some Puranas like the Vishnu Purana suggest he is the son of Sage Kashyapa.

Sri Ramakrishna on the concept of Neti Neti

In the concept of neti, neti – First the seeker tries to separate his individual self from all diversities by negating them as mere superimpositions of the deluded mind. Simultaneously he affirms that his individual self is the only reality and that it is the focus of the universal Self, the common Self of all beings and things. First of all you must discriminate, following the method of “Neti, neti”: He is not the five elements, nor the sense-organs, nor the mind, nor the intelligence, nor the ego. He is beyond all these cosmic principles.” You want to climb to the roof; then you must eliminate and leave behind all the steps, one by one. The steps are by no means the roof. But after reaching the roof you find that the steps are made of the same materials—brick, lime, and brick-dust—as the roof. It is the Supreme Brahman that has become the universe and its living beings and the twenty-four cosmic principles. That which is Atman has become the five elements. Sri Ramakrishna
