About Hindu God Pretraj Sarkar – Story of Pretraj Sarkar - King of Ghosts

Pretraj Sarkar is a Hindu God closely associated with Lord Hanuman. He is the King of Ghosts and he is also sometimes mistaken as Yamraj, the Hindu God of Death. The story of Pretraj Sarkar begins with Hanuman burning down Lanka.

When Hanuman burned Lanka, Rishi Neelasur attempted to put down the fire using his magic. But none of his magic worked on the fire started by Hanuman. Lanka continued burning.

Rishi Neelasur then realized that Hanuman was no ordinary being. He then stood before Hanuman and asked him to reveal his true identity.

Rishi Neelasur then asked to take him to Bhagavan Sri Ram.

He had his wish fulfilled after the defeat of Ravana in the Ramayana.

After the departure of Bhagavan Sri Ram from earth, Hanuman appointed Rishi Neelasur as his minister and lieutenant to spread the glory of Bhagavan …

Teachings from Vedas on the need for a Strong Body

There is a wrong notion among many that desire can be fulfilled by torturing the body. There is another set of people who believe that torturing the body by not eating etc is part of spirituality. But Vedas give importance to maintaining a healthy body as body is the means to attain Brahman.

May we hear with our ears what is good May we see with our eyes what is good May we enjoy full span of our life, with firm limbs Healthy body, and full satisfaction of the mind, In the service of the Supreme Lord. (Rig Veda 1.89.8)
May our bodies be as strong as a rock. (Yajur Veda 29.49)

Effort is in my right hand, victory in my left hand. (Atharva Veda 7.50.8)
May our four organs be free from ailments May my entire body be healthy and strong  (Atharva Veda 12.4)
