Discovery Of Fire In Hinduism - Mention Of Fire In Ancient Hindu Texts

Fire is very important for the development of a civilization, and it was first produced in ancient India scientifically. It is recorded that Atharvan, a Vedic Rishi, discovered the method of producing fire (Rig Veda VI 16 -13). Rig Veda is believed to have composed between 4500 – 5000 BC. So the discovery of fire might have happened at least a couple of hundred years before the composition of Rig Veda. Angirasa, another Vedic Rishi, produced fire by rubbing hard and dry sticks (Rig Veda I, 1-6, 31-17, 74-5). Various types of fire altars were made to preserve fire (Satapatha Brahmana IX 5-2-15). From the construction of altars, the science of kilns, fireplaces or furnaces was developed. A detailed description of this science is given in Sulbasutras. Vedic rishi Medhatithi addresses Agni (Fire) in Yajur Veda XVII - 2). Burnt bricks were named as pakvestaka (Brahma Samhita, 52 – 53) by Varahamihira and as amrita ishtaka in Satapatha Brahmana (VI-2-1-9). Katha Upanishad also refers t

Sayujya In Saiva Siddhanta

Sayujya (unity) is the attainment of unity with the Paramatma (Shiva) as per Saiva Siddhanta. Among the various means of liberation advocated by Saiva Siddhanta, sanmarga is said to be the penultimate stage. This approach indicates the relation between the preceptor and the disciple. The disciple’s doubts are all cleared and he is now qualified to receive the bliss of Shiva. As the impurities are totally annihilated, the self shines in its pristine purity and enjoys all sat qualities, as in Shiva. In liberation, Shaiva philosophy postulates, the self maintains its individuality, devoid of the impurities, and becomes one with Shiva in essence. Saujya is perfect release, according to Shaivism, from repeated births and deaths. This is attained by following the path of knowledge (jnana marga), resulting in the realization of truth. The being’s enlightenment is through the descent of divine grace. In this release, ignorance is rooted out. The attainment of spiritual unity is through tru

Savitri Putras – Sons Of Savitri

Bhagavad Gita Chapter VII Verse 16 – Explanation

Four kinds of virtuous men worship Me, O Arjuna: the distressed, the seeker of knowledge, the seeker of material prosperity and, O Prince of the Bharata race, the wise. (Bhagavad Gita Chapter VII verse 16) As a class quite distinct from those men of asuric or evil nature, mentioned in the previous verse, Sri Krishna now deals with men of virtuous tendencies. All men belonging to this class believe in God and a life eternal. But not all have the same strong and pure faith in God. Nor are they all impelled by the same pure and lofty motive in seeking God and taking refuge in Him. Sri Krishna, therefore, divides them into four classes, each class characterized by a predominant motive. First are mentioned the distressed. It is when we are in trouble or pain, in suffering or distress, that we look for help and comfort. We may feel quite strong and independent so long as all goes well.
