Trika Concept Of Abhinavagupta

Abhinavagupta (950 – 1020 CE) was a master syncretist, who discovered the thread of unity underlying the divergent spiritual thought-currents that had their origin and development in successive periods of time. In his magnum opus, Tantraloka and Paratrimshika, he has said that the spiritual thought-currents known as Agama, Spanda, and Pratyabhijna are not divergent in nature, but these are mutually complementary. Historically speaking, these represent three successive phases in the development of the Advaita Shaiva philosophy in Kashmir. He has therefore named it as the Trika school of Shaivism. Abhinavagupta has mentioned three triads, trika, in his magnum opus Tantraloka as constituting the subject matter of the Trika school of Shaivism. These are: Shiva, Shakti, and their union; Shiva, Shakti, and Nara; and Para Shakti, Apara Shakti, and Parapara Shakti. He has projected the idea of their essential identity bynaming the Advaita Shaiva school of spiritual philosophy as Trika. A

Bhoot Or Demon Worship In Kinnaur In Himachal Pradesh

Many of the Hindu temples in Kinnaur In Himachal Pradesh have separate enclosures for bhoots or demons. They are worshipped along with main gods and goddesses. They are propitiated to overcome fear, to defeat enemies and to cure mental illnesses. Reason For Demon Worship In Kinnaur Temples Perhaps an explanation lies in the fact that ‘bhoot’ derives ‘ from a root expressing existence and is applied to the elements of nature and even to deities. Shiva himself is called Bhutesha or ‘the lord of bhoots.’ Thus Bhoot worship is nature worship. In fact, in Kinnaur, there are bhoots for every occasion: Bakhar Shuna haunt forests, Banshir can assume the form of giants, Ruksas are the spirits of sinful persons, Khunch live in houses, and can pass from family to family through exchanges like marriage.

Swami Sukhabodhananda Thoughts - Motivational

A collection of thoughts of motivational speaker and philosopher Swami Sukhabodhananda At the end of one of my programmes, a lady danced for three hours in sheer celebration. Then she came and sat next to me and told me how happy she was. As she was drinking coffee, the beverage spilt on her beautiful saree. Immediately, she screamed, saying her joy from the three-hour dance was gone. Looking at this incident, I learnt that three hours of happiness was invalidated by a sorrow lasting for a few seconds. If our mind can work like this, the reverse is also possible. The three hours of sorrow can be invalidated by a few seconds of joy. Life has all the ingredients. Be creative. Don't let yourself feel victimized. You might think that what is easy is beautiful; that what is easy is joy. You are a victim of such illusions. Difficulty has such a joy. Discovery has such a joy. Seeking out has such a joy. You have to change the notion that difficulty is pain. In exercise, ther
