Story Of Ganesha Drinking Sea Of Honey

Story of Ganesha drinking sea of honey happened during the war between Tripurasura and Shiva. Tripurasura and his brother revolved around the universe in three flying cities and unleashed a reign of terror. All the gods and goddesses prayed to Ganesha for the success of Shiva. But one day, the war between Shiva and the demons began without the Devas taking the blessings of Ganapathi. On the day, Shiva was unable to achieve any kind of victory. When Shiva came to know that his arrows failed due Ganapathi, he aimed an arrow at Ganesha. The arrow could not wound Ganesha but it could neither go waste. So Ganesha directed the arrow towards the sea of Honey, one of the seven sacred seas in Hindu scriptures. Before the arrow could hit the sea of honey (Madhu Sagara), Ganesha drained the ocean floor by drinking up the honey. It is said that all the honey gave discomfort to Ganesha and he appeared at the Guddattu region in Udupi and entered the Narasimha teertha. He remained in the water

Tarka Vidya In Hinduism – Science Of Logic

The science of logic in Hinduism is known as Tarka Vidya. Nyaya is rendered as tarkavidya by the Mitakshara commentary on Yajnavalkya Smriti (I.3), which further states that fourteen vidyas are the means of knowing dharma. Tarka is an important aid to the attainment of valid knowledge and is known as one of the sixteen categories of Nyaya Philosophy. The word tarka occurs in Katha Upanishad (II.9), where it is said that knowledge of Self cannot be obtained by only ratiocination. The earlier verse (II.8) of the text states, ‘soul being more subtle than anything is not to be obtained by arguing.’ (aniyanhyatarkyamanupramanat). Gautama Dharmasutra (II.23) defines tarka as ‘the means for securing justice among contending parties.’ Tarka is accepted as an anga (limb) of Yoga in Maitrayani Upanishad (VI.20), which further quotes a passage stating that by control of speech, mind and prana (breath), one apprehends Brahman with the help of tarka. But the Mahabharata (VI 5.12) states – ‘one

Study Of Fossils In Veda – Vedic Paleontology

One of the Rig Vedic verses states – “O Saraswati, all life is in thee, thou art divine.”(Rig Veda II, 41.17). The poetic expression appears to be an original idea in the research of geology, as the poet has apparently hit upon some geological discovery – that vitality has first come into play in the region of the Saraswati River. While discussing the region as that of the origin of life, N.B. Pavgee (Vedic Discoveries in Geology), with the help of the above verse of Rig Veda, says, “Vedic research in geology convey the idea that river Saraswati was supposed, from the geological point of view, to be the scene of vitality and the region where life had first commenced after the Earth cooled down, as the verse says that all life or generations are in the Saraswati River. Reference has been made in Rig Veda about the first appearance of he

Difference Between Tantra And Vedanta

The philosophy of Tantra and Vedanta are more or less the same. In Vedanta, we address Brahman and maya. In Tantra, we address Shiva and Shakti. In the Shakta tantra, God is worshipped as Mother. Here is a look at the difference between tantra and Vedanta. Shiva is unchanging Consciousness and Shakti is its dynamic power appearing as mind and matter. Shiva and Shakti are, therefore, Consciousness and its Power. In the static transcendent aspect, Shiva, the one Brahman, does not change. In the kinetic immanent aspect, Shakti, it does. There is the changelessness in change. The individual soul is one with the transcendent spirit, the Paramatman. Vedanta is similar in this respect: the individual soul, your soul, my soul; this Atman and Brahman are the same. Individual Consciousness and cosmic Consciousness are same. The room space and the cosmic space, both are the same. In tantra, however, there is a beauty. There is a little difference between tantra and Vedanta. In the Vedantic

Satguru Swami Teonram Ji Maharaj – Founder Of Prem Prakash Panth Tradition

Satguru Swami Teonram Ji Maharaj, also known as Swami Taivu Ram, founder of the Prem Prakash Panth tradition, was born on July 6, 1887, at Khandu village, Hyderabad district, Sindh, now in Pakistan. From his early childhood, Taivu Ram showed his inclination for devotion to God. He used to encourage his friends to meditate on God. His eldest brother, Tahel Ram, tried his best to divert Taivu Ram’s attention to his worldly responsibilities, but he did not succeed. After getting his early education, Taivu Ram tried several avocations but failed. For example, he was too generous to run a shop; he would freely give away food and provisions to mendicants. Similarly, he would not guard the mango garden entrusted to him. Taivu Ram’s mother, Krishna Devi, was worried about this future, but at the same time she was impressed by his spiritual inclinations. To his mother, Taivu Ram expresses his desire to become an ascetic. Taviu Ram started satsanga regularly in which thousands of devotees used

Talu – Hard And Soft Palate In Yoga

Talu is the term used in Yoga to mean palate both the hard and the soft palate. Talumula is the back side of the palate, which is at the spot between the eyebrows. This part has attained great importance in hatha yoga. It is said in Hatha Yoga Pradipika (III.77-82) that at the talumula the moon is situated in the human body. It secretes elixir, which trickles down the throat and goes as far as the sun, situated at the navel. The sun swallows that elixir and that is what causes old age. It is by doing inverted action (viparita karani) that one places the sun above and the moon down below; then the process of aging is stopped and thereby one can enjoy the vigor of youth permanently. Talu assumes significance also with relation to another mudra called khecari, in which the tip of the tongue is turned back and inserted into the space above the talu. The space is called kapala kuhara, i.e., the space in the skull. Kapala kuhara is also called tripatha (junction of three paths) or vyoma ca

Paksha In Logic In Hinduism – Nyaya Philosophy

Paksha is a term used in logic in Hinduism especially in Nyaya philosophy. Inference or anumana is one of the four means of knowledge accepted by Nyaya philosophers. Anumana is cognition which presupposes some other cognition, because anumiti in Sanskrit literally means the consequent knowledge (anu – after, miti – knowledge) of an invariable concomitance (vyapti) between what is perceived and what is deduced. Inference is of two types – svartha (for oneself) and parartha (for others). The former is the psychological process where no formal statement is verbalized. The latter has to be presented in the form of a formal syllogism in order to convince others. The typical Nyaya Syllogism has five members, namely pratijna (proposition), hetu (the reason adduced), udaharana (example), upanaya (the sub-sumptive correlative) and nigamana (conclusion). A classical example of the syllogism is as follows – The hill has fire is pratijna. Because it has smoke is the hetu. Whatever has smok

Some Important Taboos In Hindu Religion

Tadatmya In Hindu Philosophy

Tadatmya, in Hindu philosophy, is the similarity between two concepts and objects. Tadatmya means a relation of essential identity and refers to the principle of uniformity of two concepts. It is a relation of genus (class of individuals) and species (individuals with common characteristics). Tadutpatti refers to cause and effect theory. But there is no cause and effect relation in tadatmya. Inference is drawn as an evidence of assertion. Nyaya theory relies upon empirical induction where as Buddhist doctrine relied on the identity of essence. According to Nyaya theory, there were four pramans or means of valid knowledge, pratyaksha (perception), anumana (inference), upamana (inference by analogy or comparison), and sabda (verbal), pronouncement of a reliable authority, such as Vedas. The testimony Advaita Vedanta School added are arthapatti (intuition or presumption) and anupalabdhi (non-perception). The six categories over-lapped somewhat, but Buddhists generally included all forms

Tamoyoga – A Class Of Inauspicious Beings

Tamoyoga is a class of inauspicious beings not eligible for emancipation and therefore consigned to Naraka (hell), according to the Dvaita Vedanta system of Madhva. Madhavacharya’s radical realism holds that reality is two fold Independent Dependent The Supreme Being Narayana is the one and only independent reality and all else, intelligent selves and insentient matter, are dependent. Since difference is the very essential nature of a substance, whether sentient or insentient, the principle of gradation in created beings follows a logical result. Hence a class of selves eternally damned. In Madhva system, the individual self, spiritual in nature, is endowed with limited power of will, knowledge and action. It is eternal, beginning-less, limited, finite in size, but has distinct characteristics that differentiate it from other souls and in gradation. There, this difference is both qualitative and quantitative. A self’s spiritual core is crippled by a subtle material sheath fro
