Kutastha – One Who Does Not Change Or Perish

Kutastha is another name for the akshara (imperishable). The term is found in the Bhagavad Gita (XIV – 16), and later in Panchadasi of Sage Vidyaranya (VI-22.23). Adi Shankaracharya   commenting on this stanza of the Bhagavad Gita, observes that Kutastha is one who does not change or perish. Vidyaranya seems to have understood it as the immutable, immovable being. It is like the anvil on which the blacksmith works to change every iron piece, while keeping the anvil itself unchanged. It is held that the self in the midst of changes remains changeless and that all changes take place only in contact with it and this is what is suggested in the form of the metaphor. It may also signify the top of a mountain, which remains unchanged and undisturbed despite changes taking place around it. According to some scholars the word kuta stands for the changeable world while the unchangeable exists within it, as circles within circles, projecting both the perishable and the imperishab

A Day In The Life Of Brahma – Important Time Concept In Hinduism

A day in the life of Brahma is an important time concept in Hinduism. The four yugas together equal one day of Brahma. The four yugas are Krta Yuga (also known as Satya Yuga), Treta Yuga, Dwapara Yuga and Kali Yuga. Satya Yuga is 1,728,000 human years. 1,296,000 human years.  864,000 human years. Kali Yuga is equal to 432000 human years. So the day time of Brahma is 4,320,000 human years. At the end of the day of Brahma, Kali Yuga ends with total transformation of all life forms. Then there is a period of rest for as long as there was action; this is the night of Brahma. So, one kalpa, which is one day plus one night of Brahma, lasts 8.6 million solar years. After the night of Brahma, creation starts again. Many times life has been created and transformed and this cycle never stops.

When Success Makes Us Dull and Lacking

Success makes us become dull and lethargic. We enter into a comfort zone. There is no more innovation. There are no more risks, making, trying and learning. This is when we start to rust and soon turn junk. Many successful people have the habit of getting laidback and sticking to things that have given them results. Such people are no longer willing to take risks and try out new things. What they do not realize is that things around them are changing fast and competition is increasing. Keep learning, keep growing and never sit on success. Always have the curiosity of a beginner. Never be an expert and never settle down no matter what amount of success we have achieved. Age or experience should not deter us from learning and growing. If you feel you are successful, then take up new challenges. Add something new to your life and try it. This will renew your self confidence. We need always keep alive the challenge zone in us. We should try new things, explore, accept new challe
