Why Hanuman is Known as Maruti?

Hanuman is known as Maruti because he is the son of Vayu – the wind god in Hinduism. Marut is one of the numerous names of Vayu. And as the son of Marut, Hanuman is known as Maruti.
Valmiki Ramayana mentions that a celestial woman named Punchikasthala was cursed by a sage to be born as monkey on earth. The sage later repented and told her that she will have power to assume human form when she desired.
Punchikasthala was then born as Anjana on earth.
Once, Vayu happened to see Anjana in human form and was enamoured by her beauty. Vayu made love to her in his invisible form. Anjana who realized that she was violated was about to curse her unseen lover. But Vayu appeared before her and gave her boon that her chastity will not be lost and told her that a powerful son will be born to her. This son was Hanuman.

Ek Mukhi Rudraksha – Importance of one face Rudraksha

Ek Mukhi Rudraksha, or one face Rudraksh, is a very rare Rudraksha and in Hinduism it is believed to be the representation of Brahman - the supreme truth. (Not to be confused with Lord Brahma). Ek Mukhi Rudraksha is like a half moon or in the shape of cashew nut.
Ek Mukhi Rudraksha in round form is very rare. It is so rare that human beings rarely get to see them.
The one-faced Rudraksh is worshipped for attaining moksha or liberation.
Some people also believe that if Ek Mukhi Rudraksh is present at home, Goddess Lakshmi will always be present at home.
It must be noted that just by buying a one-faced Rudraksh you are not guaranteed of luck or wealth. You need to work hard with dedication and determination. The Rudraksha only helps you in single-mined focus.

Mata Amritanandamayi on Science and Spirituality

We must resolve conflicts especially between nations with science and spirituality.
There is one explosive that is the most destructive of all. No machine can detect it. It is the hatred, loathing and vengeance found in the human mind. If we don’t get rid of our destructive emotions, there will be no end to war and violence.
No matter what action we perform the goal should be the protection of truth and dharma.
One of the main reasons for many conflicts is the separation of science and religion.

The fusion of science and spirituality will help resolve conflicts and move towards light of peace, harmony and unity. Mata Amritanandamayi
