Mangala In Hinduism – Auspiciousness In Hindu Religion

The term Mangala in Hindu religion means auspicious, lucky or a good omen. It also means good fortune in Hinduism. Ashtamangala (eight auspicious symbols) are common in Hinduism. These symbols originated from early Hindu symbols of royalty, which were presented at the time of the coronation of a Hindu king. The ashtamangala are parasol, a pair of golden fish, great treasure vase, lotus, right turning conch, srivatsa (endless knot), banner of victory and wheel of dharma. Mangala Gauri is Shakti or Mother Goddess. She is the goddess of benevolence. We find numerous temples built for her, but the oldest is one at Gaya, Bihar, which finds mentions in Padma, Vayu and Agni Puranas. The traditional view holds that all women by their very nature are Mangala. At the top is the married woman, whose husband is alive and who has given birth to several children. She is called an auspicious woman, sumangali. In ritual terms, however, the devadasi (temple dancer) exceeds even t

Dreaming Of Someone Dead - Meaning

Dreaming of someone dead or dying is considered bad as per those who believe in dream interpretation. In Hindu religion there is an ancient scripture known as Swapna Shastra which gives interpretation and meaning of various dreams. Dreaming of someone dead means that person might be facing trouble or you yourself could be in some trouble due to the particular person. Such dreams should not be ignored and they should be taken seriously. If the person seen dying is unknown then you should be careful while dealing with strangers and extra careful while traveling. It is better to avoid going so unknown places. If you know the person dying in the dream then you need to warn the person to be careful with health and external activities.

Gita Mandir At Mathura – Vrindavan – Birla Temple

Gita Mandir, also known as Birla Temple, is located on the Mathura – Vrindavan highway. While going from Vrindavan to Mathura, the Geeta temple is on the right. The temple was built by the Birlas and therefore it is also known as Birla Mandir. Mathura Gita Mandir is a red sandstone temple that looks very modern, compared to the older temples in Mathura and Vrindavan. The temple architecture and color combination of maroon and beige is very similar to the Birla Temple in New Delhi. Compared to other temples in the region, this temple is noted for its cleanliness. Mathura Gita Temple has a huge courtyard that has the Gita Stamba or Pillar with all the verses of the Bhagavad Gita inscribed on it.

The divine discus has been motorized and therefore it is continuously rotating around the index finger of t

12 Exhortations Of Vedanta – Swami Adiswarananda

The 12 Exhortations Of Vedanta are from the book titled   ' The Vedanta Way to Peace and Happiness' written by Swami Adiswarananda Sasivekalu Ganesha at Hampi - It is said that the stomach of Ganesha here resembles the shape of a mustard seed and hence the name as sasivekalu means mustard seed. If you want happiness, reduce your dependencies. If you want joy, reduce your desires. If you want peace, reduce your ego. If you want security, keep the instincts of sex and palate under control. If you hope for the best, be prepared for the worst. Face the fact that there is no life without suffering. Face the problems by overcoming them. Face the changes of life by falling back on the changeless. Face death by knowing the deathless in yourself; face the uncertainties of life by making them a part of your life. Face the past by acting on the living present. Face the nightmares by waking up. Face the sufferings by developing immunity against them. Swami Adiswarana
