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

Lalji Tulasi Das was a great saint of Pushtimarg Vaishnava school. He was born in 1551 CE at Sewan village of Larkana District of Sindh (now in Pakistan). Lalji Tulsidas belonged to a Bali (Mohyal) Brahmin family and his forefathers were great devotees of Bhagavan Sri Krishna. Lalji Tulsi Das is counted among 252 Vaishnavite devotees of Goswami Vitthalnath (son of Goswami Vallabhacharya, founder of the Pushtimarg). From his early childhood, Lalji was devoted to Bhagavan Sri Krishna and, unlike other boys, lost himself for hours in deep meditation. Once his father Ajuji had to go somewhere for some days, so he deputed Lalji to serve and worship ‘Nagarji’ (an image of Sri Krishna, the family deity). It is said that Lalji wanted Bhagavan Sri Krishna Himself to accept the offerings. Thus he waited for the Bhagavan to come, and four days passed without him eating anything. Impressed by the firm will and determination of Lalji, Bhagavan Sri Krishna gave darshan to Laji and took his offerin

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
