Story - Goddess Kalratri Who Sucks Up All Creation

Kalratri is the long dark night during total annihilation or Mahapralaya. As per Markandeya Purana, at the end of a kalpa (end of one cycle of creation), Lord Vishnu is fast asleep. She is that form of Goddess Durga, which sucks up all creation. What then remains is total darkness. The entire energy in the universe is sucked up by Kalaratri. Brahma appears on a lotus that sprouts from the navel of Vishnu. Brahma contemplates about creation but suddenly two demons, Madhu and Kaitabha, who had grown from Vishnu’s earwax stood before him with mouths wide open to gulp him. Lord Brahma tries to wake up Vishnu but is not successful. Yoga Nidra (goddess of sleep) had taken hold of his eyes. Brahma then performs intense austerities. He invokes Yoga Nidra by three names – Kalaratri, Maharatri and Moharatri. Yoga Nidra then withdraws from the eyes of Vishnu. Srihari Vishnu then annihilates the demons. Mahapralaya, or the total annihilation of the universe after a cycle of cre

Laugakshi Bhaskara – Ancient Philosopher

Laugakshi Bhaskara was an ancient Indian philosopher. He is famous for his Artha Sangraha, a Mimamsa text and Tarka Kaumudi, a Nyaya-Vaisheshika text. Laugakshi was the family name and he gives his name as Bhaskara Sharma. His father was Mudgala and grandfather Rudra Kaundra (vide colophon of his works). He offers obeisance to Vasudeva and Rama. Vasudeva might be the name of his teacher too. Of his two works, Artha Sangraha, an introductory manual on Mimamsa, is more popular than the other work, Tarka Kaumudi. It had six Sanskrit commentaries, five of them written in the 20th century. A few editions with English translation and explanatory notes in other Indian languages are also available. It is widely used in Indian universities and traditional pathasala as a beginner’s manual. The scheme of arrangement and presentation of topics in this work is common with another Mimamsa manual, Nyaya Prakasa, except for the latter being very elaborate. His other work, Tarka Kaumudi, is a man

Lasya – Graceful Feminine Movements In Indian Classical Dance - Origin Story

Lasya is the graceful feminine movements in Indian classical dance. Lasya is the counterpart of Tandava, which involves vigorous movements performed by a male dancer.  Lasya Origin Story Lasya was imparted to Sage Bharata by Bhagavan Shiva’s consort, Goddess Parvati. Tandava and lasya strike a balance between vigor and grace. Goddess Parvati also took the beautiful Usha, wife of Aniruddha, in hand and trained her in Lasya. Usha, in turn, trained the milk-maids of Dwaraka in Lasya and they, in turn, taught the maidens of Saurashtra. Thus the art of Lasya passed from the gods to humans, spreading gradually across the earth. In Bharatanatyam and Kathakali forms of classical dance, Tandava movements are performed to depict the Vira rasa, while the Lasya depicts the Sringara rasa. In Kathakali, the Tandava is more pronounced than Lasya. Women do not generally take part in Kathakali and the female roles therein are taken by men, who perform the Lasya movements. Although the pure Kathakali

Land Grants Records In Ancient India

Land grants are donations of land to persons of religious establishments in ancient India and they are highly helpful in reconstructing history of places, kingdoms, temples and important personalities. These donations were extremely rare in the earlier period, but became common from the 5 th -6 th century CE onwards, and far too common in the post-Gupta epoch. They constitute an important source for the reconstruction not only of political history but also economic, social and religious history, as also historical geography. The composition of land grants records is rather stereotyped, starting with an invocatory stanza in praise of the family deity of the donor, followed by the genealogy of the ruling monarch. Next in order is the description of the grant land, its whereabouts with geographical boundaries on all sides, and the purpose of the grant. It ends with curses to person who may, later on, forfeit the land, because the land is given for perpetual enjoyment on a nominal ren

Lalji Tulasi Das – Great Saint Of Pushtimargi Vaishnava School

It Is Easy To Blame Religion for All Kind of Strife

We get to hear statements like religions have killed more people than any other cause in the history of the humanity. But who is really to blame human beings or religion. Even if there were no religion, human beings would have found some other reason to create strife. Countries that do not practice religion kill people in the name of ideology. No religion teaches hatred. Similarly, for a person to be peaceful there is no need for a religion. All strife is created in the mind of human beings. Religion only teaches a man to keep the mind in control. Selfish and evil-minded men are just using religion to make wealth and for political gain. Such people will always be there in the society and they will always find some means to spread evil. Therefore, it is not right to blame religion for all that is bad in the world. Never ending desires, hatred, intolerance, greed, lust and power in humans are responsible for strife in the world. www.hindu-blog.com Abhilash

Anti-Aging In Hinduism

Anti-aging in Hinduism is found in Ayurveda. There are the concepts of vajikarana (making man as virile as a horse) and rasayana (freeing man from the signs of old age). In Ayurvedic text books, especially in the chapters concerning rasayana, the human life-span is fixed as one hundred years. In Chandogya Upanishad (LXVI), certain measures area described which would prolong life to the 116 th year. In occasional cases that life-span could be extended to 12 years, but rasayana is mainly intended to add life into years but not years into life. In other words, the intention is to improve the quality but not the quantity of life. Ayurvedic Acharyas say that rasayana is meant for the improvement of memory, wisdom, luster, color of the skin, voice, healthy state of all organs, vocabulary and sexual power, along with the attainment of the prescribed long life. They have stressed that measures for the improvement of health should be undertaken from middle age. In ancient India, purity of life

Quotes From Human Ecology In The Vedas Of Dr Marta Vannucci

Human Ecology in the Vedas (1999) written by Of Dr Marta Vannucci critically examine Vedic literature. Here is a collection of quotes from Human Ecology in the Vedas. These quotes are highly relevant in this era when living beings, trees and plants are being wiped out by human beings to satiate greed, lust and power. Sanatana Dharma (Hinduism) teaches to prosper by protecting and nurturing all animate and inanimate. Judaic, Christian, Islamic philosophies willfully disregarded the obvious changes over time and the evolution of everything in the universe. One of the great merits I see in Vedic and Vedic derived philosophies, and other oriental philosophies is the recognition that nothing is ever static, everywhere in the universe.   (‘Human Ecology in the Vedas’, p.viii) Though the ancient rsis probably did not see the need to knit together the knowledge acquired into a well defined and formulated whole or theory having general validity, they did recognise the importance of fa

The Problem Of Plenty - Having More Does Not Mean More Happiness

Having more does not mean more happiness, the problem of plenty from the teachings in Hindu religion. Human mind constantly seeks supports, both internal and external. Internally, the mind generates thoughts for ensuring its existence. Externally, the mind holds on to objects, people, positions, fame, and a general good feeling about life and this universe. This habit of the mind to hold on to internal and external support leads us to the problem of plenty. We humans want to acquire things. In the beginning, it is a need, which gradually is transformed into a desire, a craving for hoarding things. One mobile phone is necessity; more than that is a craving. Again, necessity is not universal. What could be a need for a rich person could be a luxury for a person with average wealth. This shows that surplus increases one’s craving to acquire more and more things. The logic that desire for acquiring things gets subsided if one has many possessions does not seem to work in real life.
