WHETHER THE TERM "DEVA' REFERS TO VISHNU AND IDOL?

Tue, 10/22/2013 - 22:47
In samskrtam, the same word means differently based on the context. This is the beauty of the divine language As far as the meaning of Deva is concerned, the term " Deva" refers to Vishnu as well as Idol as stated by Monier. Deva for VishNu Udbhavah kshobhaNO devah SrIgarbhah parameSvarah ! --- MahAbharata 12-135- 54 Deva for Idol KItopi sumanasangAdArohati satAm Sirah ! ASmApi yAti devatvam mahadbhih supratishthitah ! - HitopadeSa In my humble view if Apte is VAmana, Monier is Trivikrama.

RADHASHTAM​I CELEBRATIO​NS- FRIDAY- 13th September 2013

Tue, 09/03/2013 - 22:21
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 KrshNa, the glorious YogeSvara. According to the Scriptures, the best way to approach SrI KrshNa is through first obtaining the 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 RAdhA KrshNa. Let us not miss this opportunity to offer our humble and sincere prayers to the ever fresh and fragrant queen of BrndAvan. On this most auspicious RAdhAshtamI day, may SrI RAdhA shower Her blessings on all.

WHETHER "SAHA NAU BHUNAKTU" MEANS EATING TOGETHER?

Mon, 08/26/2013 - 20:10

The  traditional interpretation  is as follows:
The context is with reference to Study of VidyA.The Sishya prays " Saha nau Bhunaktu." This means " Vidyaphalam bhojayatu" .The Student prays to the Brahman  to grant the fruit of the vidyA to both the preceptor and himself.

WHETHER PITRU TARPANAM IS TO BE PERFORMED AS PART OF UPAKARMA FOR APASTAMBA SUTRA YAJUR VEDIS?

Thu, 08/22/2013 - 16:18
Based on traditional practice of Sishta BrAhmaNAs, for Yajur Veda Apastamba  sUtra, only KANda Rishi TarpaNam is prescribed. There is no Pitru TarpaNam as part of the  upAkarma ritual.The upAkarma practices vary in the case of other sUtras . Each one should follow his own sUtra.For RG Veda  and SAma  Veda, Pitru TarpaNam is there as part of upAkarma ritual.
There are variations in the sUtras. Hence  we have to follow what is ordained in our own sUtra  after properly learning the same from a  Guru.

PROBLEM OF PLENTY IN SANATANA DHARMA

Thu, 08/15/2013 - 16:32
There are many conflicting views floating around as regards the pursuit of dharma whether it is karma kANda, jnAna mArga or Bhakti yoga.
 There is the problem of plenty in sanAtana dharma. There are too many sacred texts, too many paths , too many rituals, too many philosophies, too many AcAryas, too many interpretations that one gets baffled. But life is short and there are compulsions of contemporary livelihood and the force of Kali.
SAstrajNAnam bahu kleSam
citteh calana kAraNam !
It is very difficult to understand and tread the righteous path in the limited time of our existence.
Only the loving grace of the Supreme should guide us.

UNIVERSAL EXCELLENCE THROUGH RIG VEDA

Sun, 07/14/2013 - 14:54
स॒मा॒नी व॒ आकू॑तिः समा॒ना हृद॑यानि वः|
स॒मा॒नम॑स्तु वो॒ मनो॒ यथा॑ वः॒ सुस॒हास॑ति||

Rg Veda x- 191-4
The aforesaid Mantra is the last Mantra of Rg Veda samhitA.
The context is regarding a common and harmonious resolution, heart and thought among the Ritvigs (Priests who conduct the sacrifice) while performance of the Yajna.
This talks about seamless integration among intellect, mind and heart for bringing out unity and harmony.
There is always a dichotomy between the head and the heart. The head goes for a particular path. The heart says it may bring problems to others and let us not take undue advantage. Let us be fair and equitable to all.
This means that perfect harmony among the stakeholders leads to managerial excellence.
Excellence is achieved by harmonious resolution (intention), harmonious heart (wishes) and harmonious thought. This is important for achieving Unity and peaceful co-existence in a collaborative manner. This principle of holistic Vedic harmony can be applied at an organizational level or societal level or national level or Universal level.

SINS AND THEIR IMPACT

Sat, 07/13/2013 - 12:17
We need to understand clearly that it is very difficult to explain or understand fully the concept of Karma and Karma phala  KarmaNohyapi boddhavyam boddhavyam ca vikarmaNah !akarmaNasca boddhavyam gahaNa karmaNo gatih !! --- Bhagavad GItA As per Dharma SAstras, there are different types of Sins classified as mahApApa, PAtaka, anupAtaka, upapApa, atipAtaka, mahApAtaka, upapAtaka, jAtibhramsakara, SankarIkaraNa, apAtrIkaraNa, malAvaha, PrakIrNaka and so on. Just like a drop of water spreading over oil, the sin gets transmitted from one person to another by association with a sinner. sankrAmanti hi papAni taila bindurivAmbhasi !cAndrAyaNam Yavakam tulA purushairiva ca! --- ParASara smrti One who blesses the sinner gets infected by the sins of the latter. Kurvantyanugraham ye tu tat pApam teshu Gacchati !SarIrasyAtyaye prApte vadanti niyamam tu ye !! --- ParASara smrti Through DashiNa the sins get transferred to the BrAhmaNa and through the recitation of the Vedas, the pApas of the BrAhmaNa get nullified. DakshiNAnAm BrAhmaNena BrAhmaNasya chandobhi:chandaSam svAdhyAyenapahata pApmA......---- TaittirIya AraNyaka Karma Phala (1)In the case of a realized person, whatever karma he does after realization gets distributed to those who praise and follow him and also to those who find fault with him. The former gets his puNya phala and the latter the PApa , if any. He experiences the prArabdha karma while his Sancita karma gets neutralized. (2) Like a young calf which recognizes the mother cow amidst thousand other cows, the karma done by a person follows him meticulously. (3) Like the tree which yields flowers and fruits at the appointed seasons, the fruit of action also manifests at the proper time. (4) When there is great natural calamity like famine etc, all the people including great Rishis by-pass the dharma and adopt what is known as the Apad dharma. (5) If a person cuts trees with an axe, then the person who cuts incurs the sin and not the Axe nor the maker of the Axe. (6) For one's action Supreme is not responsible. (7) There is the Supreme who by his Laws dispenses the Karma Phalam. (8) Good and bad deeds rotate like a wheel. (9) Karma done without the sense of doership and offered at the feet of the Supreme does not bind one. (10) The Supreme intervenes in the case of a very select few (who deserve) and neutralises their karma due to his divine grace. prAyascittAnyaSeshANi tapah karmAtmakAni vai !yAni teshamaSeshANAm KrishNAnussmaraNam param !! Karma Yoga By doing prAyascitta as per dharma SAstras, one’s sins get destroyed. prAyascitta Sabdah pApakshayArthe naimittike karma viSesha rUdah ! --- vijnAneSvarah JnAna Yoga Regarding distribution of Karma of a Self-realized person, Atma bodha explains that the critics share his sins and the followers share his puNyas. Ye jnAninam nindanti, dvishanti, du:kha pradAnam kurvanti tAnprati jnAnikrtam sarvamAgAmi kriyamANam yadavAcyam karma tatpApAtmakam gacchati !---Tatva Bodha Bhakti yoga BhagavAn KrshNa assures that He would deliver one from all sins if one unconditionally surrenders to Him. Hence there is no sin which the Supreme cannot nullify.Sarva dharmAn parityajya mAmekam SaraNam vraja !

(2) The Sins can be destroyed by following Karma yoga, jnAna yoga or Bhakti yoga as aforesaid. Else it may affect the person and his family depending on the severity of the Sins committed. (3) Unconditional surrender to the lotus feet of the Supreme by following Bhakti Yoga will definitely nullify all sins and one will get released. This is applicable to all. (4) All the lineal descendants including sons , daughters, grand sons and grand daughters may get impacted depending upon the severity of the Sin. The extent and nature of the impact is very difficult to predict.
It is not possible to draw a matrix of all the sins in the world and then say who are all will be affected, to what extent, when ( whether in this birth or later), in what sequence, why and how.

DISTRIBUTION OF THE EFFECTS OF SINS

Fri, 07/12/2013 - 09:01
A person can escape punishment of  sin if due prAyascitta is done as per dharma sAstra or if he is a Self realized person or if he unconditionally surrenders to KrshNa.
If the gravity of the Sin is so powerful the entire generation can get affected.  It has to be kept in mind that a person who has to experience the agony based on his sins alone would be born as son and hence it gets transmitted to the right person only. There is no discrimination. 
RAjA shares the sins of his citizens, RAja purohita shares the sins of the  RAjA. The husband shares the sins of his wife.  Guru shares the sins of his disciples. The pApa done by a self -realized person gets distributed to his critics and the PunYa to his followers.

WHETHER THE SINS COMMITTED BY A PERSON WOULD AFFECT HIS PROGENY ?

Mon, 07/08/2013 - 21:27
According to Smrutis, the effect of the adharma done by a person attacks the doer slowly and cuts off the roots of the perpetrator. The  punishment for  the  sins will fall on him, if not on his sons  and  if not on his grandsons.  Thus a person's entire family is  impacted adversely by the sins committed by a person and the perpetrator   is bound to reap the fruit of his sins.
