Yoga and Speech (Hindu Dharma)

When you play the harmonium the nagasvaram or the flute the sound is produced by the air discharged in various measures through different outlets. Our throat has a similar system to produce sound. It is not that the throat alone is involved in this process. How do we speak and sing.Speaking or singing is an exercise that has its source below the navel in the muladhara or root-base of the spinal column. Know More

The Ashtami Tithi, Shukla Paksha of Bhadrapada is dedicated to Radha, the consort of Lord Krishna. The day commemorates her birth anniversary, and hence, it is referred to as Radha Ashtami Know More

Ganpati Maha Utsav

Ganesh Maha Ustav is the most important annual festival dedicated to Lord Ganesh, who is also known as Ganpati, Vinayaka and several other meaningful names. He is hailed as Vighnaharta (the one who removes obstacles), and hence he is worshipped first before initiating a new venture, work or auspicious beginning like marriage or Griha Pravesh.

It begins on the fourth day (chaturthi) of the month of Bhadrapada , the sixth month of the Hindu calendar, also called Ganesh Chaturthi. Know More

Brahmana and Aranyaka (Hindu Dharma)

So far, in speaking of the Vedas, I have dealt mainly with the Samhita part of each sakha or recension. We have already seen that the Samhitas are the main text of the Vedas. Apart from them, each sakha has a Brahmana and an Aranyaka. The Brahmana lays down the various rites - karma - to be performed and explains the procedure for the same. Know More

The Four Vedas(Hindu Dharma)

"Anantah vai Vedah", the Vedas are unending. The seers have, however, revealed to us only a small part of them but it is sufficient for our welfare in this world and next. We are not going to create many universes like Brahma that we should know all the Vedas. We need to know only as many as are necessary to ensure our good in this world. Know More

Those who conduct Sacrifces(Hindu Dharma)

One who performs a yajna or sacrifice spending on the material and dakshina is called a "yajamana". "Yaj" (as we seen already) means to worship. The root meaning of "yajamana" is one who performs a sacrifice. In Tamil Nadu nowadays we refer to a "mudalali" as yajaman. It is the mudalali who pays the wages. So it is that we have given him the same place as the yajamana who pays dakshina in sacrifices. Know More

Animal Sacrifice in the Age of Kali (Hindu Dharma )

An argument runs thus: In the eons gone by mankind possessed high ideals and noble character. Men could sacrifice animals for the well-being of the world because they had great affection in their hearts and were selfless. They offered even cows and horses in sacrifice and had meat for sraddha. Know More

The Purpose of Sacrifices (Hindu Dharma )

Why is it that religion alone has the rites called yajnas or sacrifices? If a crop grows in surplus in our place we trade it with what is available in plenty in another and is not produced in our own. The carpenter, the blacksmith and other artisans make useful articles and serve us in many ways. Know More

The Threefold Purpose of Yajna(Hindu Dharma)

The Vedic sacrifices have threefold purpose. The first is to earn the blessings of the deities so that we as well as all other creatures may be happy in this world. The second is to ensure that, after our death, we will live happily in the world of the celestials. Know More

Not in Other Religions(Hindu Dharma)

There is a big difference between our religion, the "Vedic mata", and other faiths. Religions like Christianity and Islam speak of one God. The Vedas too proclaim that there is but one God and that even an ordinary mortal is to be identified with him. Know More

The Glory of the Vedas (Hindu Dharma )

The Vedas are eternal and the source of all creations and their greatness is to be known in many different ways. As I have already stated, their sound produces in our nadis as well as in the atmosphere vibrations that are salutary not only to our own Self but to the entire world. Here we must understand "lokakshema" or our welfare of the world to mean the good of mankind as well as of all other creatures. Know More

Sound and Meaning (Hindu Dharma)

An interesting thought occurs to me here. In Sanskrit the suffix "taram" isused for the comparative degree. "Viryavat" means "strong", "Viryavat taram" means "stronger". It is said in the Chandogya Upanishad (1. 1. 10) that he who meditates on the truth of Omkara (Aumkara) with a knowledge of its meaning, will gain benefits that are "viryavat taram". The implication here is that those who practice such meditation without knowing the meaning will obtain benefits that are “viryavat" Know More

Mantra Yoga (Hindu dharma)

The fourteen worlds constitute an immensely vast kingdom. It has an emperor and all living beings are his subjects. This kingdom as well as its ruler is eternal and it has its own laws. If the kingdom and the kingemperor are eternal, the law also must be so. This law is constituted by the Vedas. Though the kingdom, the cosmos, is called "anadi", it is dissolved and created again and again. Know More

The Vedas are Infinite(Hindu Dharma)

If the cosmos of sound (sabda-prapanca) enfolds all creation and what is beyond it, it must naturally be immensely vast. However voluminous the Vedas are, one might wonder whether it would be right to claim that they embrace all activities of the universe. "Anantah vai Vedah", the Vedas themselves proclaim so (the Vedas are endless). Know More

Word of God (Hindu Dharma)

We must not distrust the belief that the Vedas are not the work of mere mortals. Followers of other religions too ascribe divine origin to their scriptures. Jesus says that he merely repeats the words of God Know More
