Amnaya – Sacred Tradition In Ancient Hinduism

Amnaya comprises Vedas, family or national customs and received doctrines. In the sense of Vedas, it indicates the entire sacred lore of the four Vedas (Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharva), and the related disciplines of traditional study (Brahmanas, Aranyakas, Upanishads). In this sense it is a source and authority of dharma. In the meaning of “usage and customs”, it is equivalent to the word sampradaya (conventions). In the sense of received doctrine and advice, it is taken to mean Vedanta philosophy and the religious temple traditions. In this sense, the four institutions established by Shankaracharya (dated from 6 th century BCE to 8 th century CE) are very significant. Shankaracharya, the monistic interpreter of the philosophy of Upanishads, desired that knowledge should be made available to seekers in all corners of ancient India. He established four pithas under the stewardship of his four disciples. These four main institutions are called the Caturamnayapitha. The four Amnaya P

Trilokinath Temple At Udaipur In Lahaul – Himachal Pradesh

Trilokinath temple is located about 9 kms from Udaipur in Lahaul, Himachal Pradesh. The shrine was constructed during the mid 8th century CE. The main deity worshipped in the temple is Shiva – the six-armed Shiva murti is believed to have been installed by Guru Padmasambhava. The Buddhists of the region worship the deity as Avalokiteshvara. A popular story says that a Kulu Raja reached Trilokinath and tried to carry off the idol, but was defeated in the attempt, as the stone became too heavy to move. There is a mark on the right leg of the marble figure, which is said to have resulted from a sword blow by a Kullu soldier of the time. Udaipur Trilokinath Temple Story Built in the Kashmiri – Kannauj style, the temple has been repeatedly renovated over the centuries, most recently in the 1980s, and only the column and bases in the porch remain of the original construction. This shikhara shrine stands on a raised platform. The temple consists of a curvilinear stone tower shikhara cro

If You Search For Proof Of Rama And Krishna You Will Never Reach Your Destination

We live in a world in which proof, date and time is of great importance. We want to prove that our God lived on earth from this date to that date. A chronological order of events of the God on earth makes it even more effective. However, Hinduism does not believe in dates, Hindu scriptures never mention dates, and some of the authors of these scriptures even do not mention their name. Dates and names are of no use in self-realization. Therefore, if you search for the proof of Rama and Sri Krishna you will be lost in the artificial man made world and you will never reach your destination. Rama and Sri Krishna is an experience. Bhagavan taking the form of a little child and playing the lap of his mother, doing naughty things, getting punished…such incidents are a direct connect between Bhagavan and devotee. You do not need a proof for it. Every time a devotee discovers this love, a devotee experiences ecstasy. Tears have trickled down from devotees for thousands of years, it continu
