Reason For Applying Chandan Tilak Between Eyebrows

Chandan Tilak is applied between the two eyebrows to activate the Sushumna Nadi. Sushumna Nadi is the spot associated with intellect and human thoughts. The Chandan Tilak also helps in positively charging the ajna chakra or pineal gland, which is again associated with intellect, sex and thoughts. When the invisible Sushumna Nadi and ajna chakra are activated, a man can make spiritual progress. Ajna chakra is also referred as the third eye chakra. Chandan tilak on the forehead of a murti (idol of Hindu Gods and Goddesses) awakens the pingala nadi. This act attracts the positive energy from surroundings and this is emitted on the people present at the puja. The paste for chandan tilak to be worn on the forehead is prepared using both the hands. This act charges the both pingala nadi and ida nadi. But the paste for putting on the forehead of a dead person is only prepared using right hand. This act charges only the pingala nadi. This activates the life force still left in the

Hamsa or Hansa Title Meaning – Title Paramahansa Used by Hindu Saints

History Of Thillai Kaliamman Temple At Chidambaram Temple

This history of Thillai Kaliamman Temple at the famous Chidambaram Temple In Tamil Nadu is associated with the Tandava dance performed by Shiva and Goddess Kali. A local legend tells the story of Goddess Kali competing with Mahadev Shiva in dance. Goddess Kali was proud that she was all-powerful and began destructive activities. Bhagavan Vishnu and Narada, the celestial sage, appealed to Shiva to save the world from destruction. Shiva then appeared at Thillai and waged war against Kali. Shiva destroyed the army of Kali in no time. She then suggested that they compete in dance and decide who was the victor. Both began dancing. One of the earrings of Shiva fell to the ground and He picked it up with his right foot and fixed it back in its place. On account of feminine modesty (which would be breached if she assumed such a posture) this extraordinary feat was impossible for Kali to perform and She had to accept defeat. Goddess Kali was then asked by Shiva to proceed to the northern

Moksha Can Happen Only Through Proper Understanding

To achieve liberation, or moksha, we need to think and have independent viewpoints. If we blindly follow, we will never achieve our goal. Moksha can happen only through proper understanding. Thinking comes with responsibility because we have to make choices and take decisions. Those who blindly follow never achieve liberation because they are being led and used by their leaders. Blind followers are after desire fulfillment. Desires are never fulfilled. Only true knowledge shuts the gates of desires. To achieve liberation we need to ask questions to ourselves. With each doubt cleared or question answered, we are removing the layers of ignorance that is covering the Truth. Asking questions or having doubt is not blasphemy. It is an important element in faith. It helps us in understanding our faith better. Always know that what you are seeking is within. People can only show directions. But you have to do the walking towards the destination.  Abhilash www.hindu-blog.com
