Qualifications And Duties Of A Ruler In Shanti Parva Of Mahabharata

As per Shanti Parva of Mahabharata, although the king or ruler could claim a divine origin, he was not above dharma; in fact, as the chief protector of dharma, he was expected to follow its precepts most meticulously. He received obedience and reverence from his subjects because he was anointed by Bhagavan Vishnu, but for that very reason they expected him godly behavior. He had to be free of all temptations, greed and vices. He had to be learned, knowledgeable and brave. It was his duty to protect the life, honor and wealth of his subjects, to guide them on the morally correct path. In this task, he was to be guided by his ministers and assisted by an administrative hierarchy. The ideal number of ministers was to be eight, and they could be chosen from any community or caste.

Thoughts and Quotes on Holi Festival – Messages And Teachings on Holi In Hinduism

This is a collection of thoughts, quotes and teachings on Holi festival in Hinduism. The messages are mainly of Swami Jis and are based on Hindu religion teachings. One of the great obstacles in life to our spiritual progress is the difference between what we do or say on the outside and how we really are on the inside. Holika had performed certain austerities by which she was entitled to this boon from God. On the outside, she was pious. But, on the inside she was not pure. Prahlad, on the other hand, was a simple, pure, loving devotee of God. This is what saved him. This inner purity and inner piety is what truly save us, what truly make our lives divine.

All the rituals and puja in the world cannot make up for the lack of piety, honesty and compassion. The goal of going to temple is not just to pe

Bhagavad Gita Chapter X – Verse 26 – 27 – 28

I am Ashvattha among all the trees; Narada among the Devarshis; Chitraratha among the Gandharvas, the sage Kapila among the perfected ones. (Bhagavad Gita Chapter 10 – Verse 26) Devarshis are devas who are at the same time rishis, or seers of mantras. There are three classes of illumined sages, or siddhas. First, those born perfect without reference to any prior event. Second, those born perfect in consequence of perfection previously attained. Third, those who become perfect after birth, in consequence of illumination attained during life. Kapila, the revealer of the Sankhya philosophy, belongs to the first class. He was born with knowledge, power, virtue and dispassion. Think of Me when you hear his name or study his work. Gandharvas are celestial musicians; they sing and dance in the court of Indra. Among horses know Me as Uchchaihshravas, born of nectar; among the lordly elephants as Airavata; and among men as the monarch.   (Bhagavad Gita Chapter 10 – Verse 27) Uchchaihshrav
