Upakarma or Upakrama

Thu, 08/02/2012 - 15:36
Namaste,
Esteemed scholars,
In the Indian tradition on this day we celebrate Upaakarma. What is the
meaning of this word? I heard a scholar saying that it is Upakrama as one
is supposed to start studying one new portion of the Vedas and the
Shastras. Is it UPA-KRAMA?

Query on name of the 70th birth-anniversary

Tue, 07/31/2012 - 01:25
In South India, people celebrate their 70th birth-anniversary day as ‘Bhima
Ratha Santi’ (भीम रथ शांति ) utsavam. (I hope my Sanskrit spelling is
correct).

I wonder why the 70th anniversary is so called?

In the last pada of a shloka, I don't understand punIyAdari in

The rest I believe is "the blissful Mukunda Who holds a conch shell, a

Could it be punIyAt ari? Perhaps some conjugation of pU that I don't
understand, followed by ari (enemy)? If so, how can ari fit with the

ब्रह्मा, ब्रह्मन्, ब्राह्मण

Mon, 07/23/2012 - 06:40
Respected Scholars,

Are the three words Brahma [one of the Trinity, the creator], Brahman [the
Supreme Truth of the Vedas and Upanishads] and Brahmin [one of the four
Varnas] derived from the same root. I am eager to know how the three words
are formed.

With reverence
