This guilt feeling is because he has the fear that his success might one day disappear. The question is due to fear and out of ignorance of his real nature. Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj answers – Maharaj: Before we consider what is 'right' and what is 'wrong', please tell me who is asking this question. Visitor: Why, 'me', of course. M: And who is that?

Meru Prastara – Triangular Array

Meru Prastara is a triangular array of numbers. Pingala’s Chandah Sutra (C 200 BCE) deals with it for finding the combination of ‘n’ syllables taken 1, 2, 3, … at a time. This is used to calculate various possible permutations and combinations, which was one of the favorite mathematical pursuits of Vedic Hindus as well as the Jainas. In Vedic literature one finds various Vedic meters, gayatri, anustubh, brihati, tristubh, jagati, to mention a few, with different numbers of syllables. The varnasangita, the music of sound variations of the Vedic and post-Vedic composers, depended only on the variation of two sounds – guru (long) and laghu (short). So they were concerned with finding different possible types of meters from those of varying syllables by changing the long and short sounds within each syllable group. Halayudha (10 th century CE) in his commentary on Chandah Sutra of Pingala, elaborated upon the meru-prastara (pyramidal scheme) technique for finding the number of combina

Narada Says That Realization Is Its Own Fruit

Narada says that this is the nature of realization: When the subject-object consciousness is transcended, Brahman flashes forth. There is an impression that Brahman is realized by this transcendental consciousness. But actually it is not so. Brahman is your real nature, and what is already there merely shines forth. When the clouds covering the sun go away, we get the impression that the sun shines because the clouds are removed. But the removal of the clouds did not create the sun, it was already there shining. When a hypnotized person is de-hypnotized, nothing new happens; only the mistaken identity goes away. But we say, ‘He became himself again.’ When the bhrama or mistake goes away, what is already there remains. So there is nothing like: ‘by this’ one ‘shall realize God’. The sadhaka should know that neither ‘by’ knowledge nor ‘by’ jnana and bhakti combined can one realize God. Ignorance is not an object, though we get the impression of the ignorance going away and realization

Epicycle Theory In Hinduism

Mandaphala is the epicycle theory in Hinduism. According to description, while the movement of mean sun, or moon, is along a big circular orbit of radius, R, the actual (or true) sun or moon moves along another smaller circle of radius, r, called the epicycle, whose center is on the bigger circle. The bigger circle, called kaksavritta, has the earth as its center. It is assumed that as the center of the epicycle (mean sun) moves the bigger circle in the direction from west to east with the velocity of the mean sun, the true sun itself moves along the epicycle with the same velocity but in the opposite direction (from east to west). Also, the time taken by the true sun to complete one revolution along the epicycle   is the same as that taken by the mean sun (i.e the center of the epicycle) to complete one revolution along the orbit. Then the arc on the epicycle joining the Madhya (or the mean sun) and spashta (or sphurta) Ravi is called mandaphala (the equation of center).
