Birth of Duryodhana – The Story of the Mysterious Birth of Duryodhana

Dhritarashtra’s wife Gandhari had conceived but the delivery did not happen for two years. One day she got the news that Kunti, wife of Pandu (younger brother of Dhritarashtra), had delivered a son. Gandhari grew jealous. Filled with jealousy and anger, she pressed her womb so forcefully that a large lump of flesh came out. Sage Vyasa who was present in Hastinapura got to know about the unfortunate incident. He advised the lump to be cut into one hundred pieces and deposited in jars of ghee.

Imbalance In Life Is Because We Are Far Removed From Nature

When something goes wrong in life, know that it is due to imbalance. There needs to be a balance in life. This can only happen when we are ready to be part of nature by embracing the whole. Focusing only on one area of life and neglecting others invites trouble. Balance should be there on the inside and outside. Most of us are very careful with our external interactions. But this carefulness is missing in the internal interactions. Thoughts and feelings should be balanced.   The best way to avoid imbalance in life is to have a simple life. Breathe properly. Have good healthy routine. Wake up early. There should be emotional and physical discipline. When the mind is disturbed, concentrate on your breathing. Inhale deeply and exhale slowly. A peaceful and happy life is only possible when there is proper understanding of life. The feeling of oneness with universe is necessary for it. To accept that I am part of nature and I am bound by the laws of nature is necessary. When this

Swami Vimuktananda – On Consummation Of Spiritual Practice

A person may at first take some external thing as an object of his meditation, but he should afterwards think of it as existing only in the form of the mind; and lastly the mind also should be reduced to Brahman which is pure consciousness. Then alone one is said to have reached the highest goal. By constant practice of contemplation and discrimination there dawns on the mind of the aspirant the knowledge that Brahman alone is and nothing else exists. Thus the ignorance which has so long deluded him by projecting the world of duality, comes to an end. Thereafter the mind also, which by destroying ignorance has brought the aspirant so close to Brahman, vanishes like the fire which after consuming its fuel is itself extinguished, then Brahman alone shines in Its own glory. After long practice, the aspirant at first realizes, while in Samadhi, the presence of Brahman which pervades the inner and the outer world. But this is not all. He should then hold on this Brahmic consciousnes

Story Of Birth Of Sage Durvasa And Arrow Of Shiva

There are three different stories in the Puranas regarding the birth of Sage Durvasa. The only common factor in all the three stories is that Lord Shiva is responsible for the birth of the Sage. One such story suggests that Durvasa was born from an arrow. Once, Shiva became so furious seeing the Adharma practiced by demons. His anger took the shape of an arrow and annihilated the demons. People were satisfied and happy with end of the rule of demons. But the arrow could not be stopped by humans, saints, or Devas. If not controlled, the arrow would destroy the universe. Devas prayed to Shiva to call back the arrow. Shiva then intervened and took back the arrow. It returned to the lap of Shiva. The arrow was then born as Sage Durvasa.

Story of Goddess Mookambika - Information on Mookambika Temple

Along with the story of Goddess Mookambika, the article provides a complete information on Kollur Mookambika Temple along with details about Kodachadri mountain range, Ganapathi Cave, Souparnika River, Sarvajna Peetha and Chitramoola. Story of Goddess Mookambika is found in the Skanda Purana. The ancient Purana narrates that a demon named Kaumasura performed intense austerities and was blessed with the darshan of Mahadev Shiva. The demon intended to ask immense powers and immortality as boon. But Goddess Saraswati as Vagdevi robbed the demon of his speech. The demon was thus unable to ask the boon and from that day he came to be known as Mookasura.  Through the austerities performed, Mookasura had attained immense strength. He used this strength to attack the Devas and human beings. To put an end to the demon, Goddess Shakti, Lakshmi and Saraswati combined into one form and annihilated the demon Mookasura.

Master Yogi Bhola Nathji Teachings On Miracles In Hindu Religions

Teachings on miracles in Hindu religion by Master Yogi Bhola Nathji. A miracle is an incident or action of which we do not know the cause nor the end. Ordinary intelligence fails to understand it. Science is left wondering. Our ordinary education and experiences have prescribed the limitations of our knowledge in this short life. If any 'miracle' happens through the instrumentality of any individual, we say, this is contrary to the Laws of Nature. Miracles which we believe to be contrary to the Laws of Nature, belong to a field of activity which is unknown to us-so far. Why are we startled even at the mention of the word 'miracle' when the whole universe which we see before us, is in itself a great miracle? Why, then, if anything unknown before happens, should we start wondering? Why should we say it is impossible? Miracles belong to a stage in the path of progress towards spiritual life, which is more dangerous. They are apt to divert genuine seekers after Truth

You suffer when you hold on – You prosper when you let go

Holding on and not letting go is a big problem of our times. In holding on there is only suffering but when there is letting go there is freedom, happiness, growth and prosperity. Parents hold on to children and do not let them pursue their dreams. Lovers hold on and suffer lifelong. Holding on is weakness and letting go is strength. There is peace, growth, prosperity and happiness in letting go. The holding on is not limited to people, we also hold on to anger, hurt, grudge, hatred, revenge and many other negativities. They weaken us from within. This weakness soon reflects on our mental, emotional and physical health.  Some of us go into long periods of silence after a fight. This is not positive silence. This is a negative silence. This silence is like a volcano. Lot of hatred, abuse and negative activities are building up. We are holding on to the feeling of hurt and anger. It is not doing us any help. Let out the steam. Talk things out. When you are angry, just shout out a

So how can we get permanent or everlasting happiness, which is referred to, in scriptures as Supreme Bliss. Happiness, which we get from an external source, will not last for longtime.

Behavior Of The Man Who Has Gone Beyond Gunas

The river makes a noise as it is moving, but this noise comes to an end when it joins the ocean. To the pillar in the house, the passing of the night and the dawning of the day are both the same. Similarly are happiness and misery to the Soul inside the body. To the man, who is fast asleep, it does not matter whether his bed companion is a fair beauty or a serpent. To him, who is absorbed in Brahman, happiness and misery do not matter. Cow dung and gold are the same to him. A jewel and a stone are the same to him. His sight has found equanimity. Even if heavens were to walk to his door or a tiger came on his threshold to eat him, his absorption in Self will not be disturbed. A dead body cannot be made alive again. A dead seed cannot sprout.  So is his steady intelligence, which cannot be detracted. If he gets homage from people in the belief that he is Brahman or if he gets insulted by them in the belief that he is unclean, he is indifferent. Praise and insult appear t
