Brahmarakshas – What is Brahma Rakshas in Hindu Religion?

Brahmarakshas, in Hindu religion, is the ghostly form of a learned and pious person who by curse or due to some other reason got the ghoulish spirit form. In some region, Brahmarakshas is the fierce ghostly form of celibate youth, or Brahmachari, who met with a violent death.
As per one school of thought, Brahmarakshas is the spirit of a Brahmin, who had knowledge of Brahman. But the Brahmin due to various reasons like curse or sin got the ghoulish form.
Brahmarakshas is given the status of a deity and is usually worshipped in a corner in temples in South India especially in Kerala. You will find a slab or stone that is dedicated to Brahmarakshas in most temples. The place is never within the sanctum sanctorum but outside.
The main offering to Brahmarakshas is red cloth.

Today, Brahmarakshas is seen as a fierce ghost who goes around killing innocent people. All these are imaginations of fil…

Separation is the absence of love – Ramesh Balsekar

Separation is the absence of love, and love is the absence of separation.
Words can never transfer understanding. They can only open the way for one's intuition to rise into consciousness.
Insecurity can never disappear until the sense of separation itself disappears.
All these concepts have only one purpose: they are pointers to the Truth.
When the understanding is deep there is a feeling of gratitude and surrender to the Guru or consciousness or Totality or God.
All the items which make for insecurity have existed since time immemorial – poverty, disease, death, war – and all along there have been a comparatively few persons of understanding who have accepted insecurity as an intrinsic part of what we call life.
