Dyo Chhen –Hindu God’s House In Nepal – Different From Temple

Dyo Chhen is a unique form of worship place in Hinduism in Nepal. Dyo Chhen looks like a house and word also means God’s house. A secret method of worshiping Hindu gods and goddess takes place in it but is different from a Hindu temple. Aagam Dyo Chhen is one such popular place of worship in Bhaktapur, Nepal. The structure will be used by residents and there will also be designated place worship in the structure. You will find clothes hanging and other day today activities taking place just like in a house in the structure. The outward appearance of Dyo Chhen is similar to residential houses in Nepal. Tantric Goddesses, Ashta Matrikas, Ganesha and various forms of Shiva like Bhairava are worshipped in it. Sometimes it serves as the abode of a powerful personal deity, family deity (kula devata) or tutelary deity. The rituals and pujas offered in the shrine remains a mystery.

Isvarakrsna – Author Of Samkhyakarika

Isvarakrsna (350 – 450 CE) is the author of Samkhyakarika, the basic, prime text on the doctrines of Samkhya philosophy. Very little is known about Isvarakrsna as a person. The Chinese translation of his work by Paramartha states that he was a Brahmin of Kaushika Gotra and an ascetic. There have been attempts to identify him with Vindhyavasin (a Buddhist teacher), and it seems probable that he was a contemporary of Varasaganya and Vasubandhu, famous Buddhist philosophers. If this account is true, then Isvarakrsna might belong to the Gupta period (4 th century CE), which provided a great impetus to the revival of Hindu philosophy. In 73 aphorisms in the arya meter, Samkhyakarika provides the formulation of tenets of the Samkhya system available in those days. According to Samkhyakarika, the essence of Samkhya philosophy consists in the discovery of the means of removing the three-fold suffering (caused by the supernatural, the physical or natural, and spiritual forces) and the means

Jhulelal Jayanti is the day when Jhulelal appeared on earth.

Nisargadatta Maharaj – Destiny Is Only A Blanket Word To Cover Up Your Ignorance

A collection of the immortal words of Nisargadatta Maharaj which shuts the door of ignorance and lights up the real world. Between chance and destiny is there a basic difference? Only in your mind. In fact, you do not know what causes what? Destiny is only a blanket word to cover up your ignorance. Chance is another word. As long as you take yourself to be a person, a body and a mind, separate from the stream of life, having a will of its own, pursuing its own aims, you are living merely on the surface and whatever you do will be short-lived and of little value, mere straw to feed the flames of vanity. Desires and thoughts are also things. Disregard them. Since immemorial time the dust of events was covering the clear mirror of your mind, so that only memories you could see. Brush off the dust before it has time to settle; this will lay bare the old layers until the true nature of your mind is discovered. It is all very simple and comparatively easy; be earnest and patient, that
