REVIEW OF THE BOOK “ THE UPANISHADS DEMYSTIFIED” BY SHRI. VED PRAKASH BHATIA

Sat, 12/23/2017 - 17:10
Shri.Ved Prakash Bhatia deserves all appreciation for his painstaking and nicely presented work titled “The Upanishads Demystified “. He has vividly brought out the essence of  eleven major Upanishads covering Isa, Kena, Katha, Prasna, Mundaka, Mandukya, Taittiriya, Aitareya, Chandogya, Brihadaranyaka and Svetasvara Upanishads. He has lucidly explained  the key philosophical concepts  in terms of Brahman, Atman, Avasthas, Omkara , Panca Kosa, Panca Bhuta and so on. He has also presented interesting and meaningful stories from the Upanishads.  He has beautifully touched upon the ethical values as embedded in the Upanishads. He has been greatly successful in simplifying the complex nature of the  contents of the Upanishads which represent the treasure of the wisdom of our revered Rishis. This excellent book will be of great interest to anyone who is interested in knowing the nuances of Upanishads especially the younger generation. I urge  upon  all those interested in spirituality to make use of this remarkable work. I  wish the author all the best and  congratulate him for his tireless efforts in propagating the eternal voice of the Vedas which transcends all barriers in terms of caste, creed, race , religion or gender.

SRI RADHASHTAMI CELEBRATIONS – 29th AUGUST 2017 - TUESDAY

Thu, 08/24/2017 - 14:50
Sri  Radha is none other than Sri Mahalakshmi, who out of great compassion, facilitates the individual Self to get the divine grace of the Supreme Bhagavan Sri Krishna, the glorious Yogesvara. According to the Scriptures, the best way to approach Sri Krishna is through first obtaining the boundless grace of Sri Radha. Even a grave sinner gets redemption through her ceaseless divine grace and becomes purified to serve the lotus feet of Sri Radhakrishna.  Let us not miss this opportunity to offer our humble and sincere prayers to the ever fresh and fragrant queen of Vrndavana. On this most auspicious Radhashtami  day, may Sri Radha shower Her divine blessings on all. Fasting on the most sacrosanct Radhshtami day yields the fruit of fasting on thousands of Ekadasi days. श्रीगोविन्दप्रियां राज्ञीं वृन्दावन मनोहरीम् !कृपास्वरूपिणीं दिव्यां राधा देवीं नमाम्यहम् !!माधुर्यरससंपूर्णां माधवमनमोहिनीम् !महाभावनिमग्नां तां मधुराधां नमाम्यहम् !!Sri Radha Krupa Kataksha Stava Raja Stotramhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGFMOC-gua4&feature=channel Sri Krishna  Krupa Kataksha  Stava Raja Stotramhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5JGqtIbrH8&feature=channel Barsane Wali Radhehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uh_3wRRbg7c&feature=channel Paramadhan Radhehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1Y2dInVlLc&feature=channel मङ्गलं कृष्णकामिन्यै मङ्गलं शुभ मङ्गलम् |मङ्गलं प्रेमदायिन्यै मङ्गलं शुभ मङ्गलम् ||मङ्गलं मनमोहिन्यै मङ्गलं शुभ मङ्गलम् |मङ्गलं मधुराधायै मङ्गलं नित्य मङ्गलम् ||जय जय श्रीराधे
