How did he Do it ?

" HOW DID HE DO IT ? " said Nelson Mandela about Srila Prabhupada

Hare Krishna. I thought you might like to know a little bit of the untold side of Nelson Mandela.

He came several times to ISKCON's Ratha Yatra in
South Africa while he was president of the nation. The first time Bhakti Tirtha Swami met him, in the course of their conversation, Maharaja quoted a Gita verse. Half-way thru the verse, Mandela quoted the rest of it. BT Swami
was surprised.

He asked "You know the Gita?" Mandela said "Try me." Every
Gita verse Bhakti Tirtha Maharaja knew, Nelson knew as well. Naturally, BT Swami asked "How is this?" Nelson Mandela explained that he was imprisoned on Robbins Island along with some of his fellow leaders of their political party, the ANC. One of them was an Indian-bodied lawyer. The South African government tried to break them by giving them mindless labor and routine.

Realizing that they needed to keep their minds actively engaged, the India…

Finally a Tonoscope picture of OM !


Sri Yantra created in an electronic sound field (Tonoscope) during an experiment by Dr. Jenny. The same experience is sensed during ritual worship when the Sri Chakra pattern 'dematerializes', appearing to dissolve into a blissful all encompassing web of spoken mantras.

Diwali 2013 :)

The Conquest of Naraka 

Let us all firstly understand, the real essence of Diwali Celebration . Lord Narayana killed the demon Naraka. But really Naraka is the ego that parades itself by taking the hellish body to be ‘I’. Hence, those who enquire into the source of this Naraka and destroy him are indeed Narayana, the killer of Naraka. 

'Naraka' is both the term for the hell realm and the name of the asura who was slain by Krishna, the avatar of Lord Narayana. The festival of Deepavali celebrates the victory of Narayana over Naraka'. One of the key events of this celebration is a ritual bath that is taken at an auspicious time. 

Taken on Naraka Chaturdasi, the auspicious bath that symbolizes the conquest of Naraka is actually bathing in the waters of true knowledge after killing Naraka, the ego, by tracking him down to his place of residence.

Sri Ramana Maharishi: Naraka is he who rules the world of Hell by taking the hellish body to be 'I'. Hence, he who slays Naraka w…

Hanuman Chalisa

Image
In Hanuman Chalisa, it is said,
 "Yug sahastra yojan per Bhanu ! Leelyo taahi Madhu Phal Janu !! "
1 Yug = 12000 years 1 Sahastra = 1000 1 Yojan = 8 Miles Yug x Sahastra x Yojan = par Bhanu 12000 x 1000 x 8 miles  1 mile = 96000000 miles = 96000000 x 1.6kms =  153600000 kms to Sun 
NASA has said that, it is the exact distance between Earth and Sun (Bhanu). Which proves Hanuman ji did jump to Planet Sun, thinking it as a sweet fruit (Madhu Pal).
It is really interesting how accurate and meaningful Our ancient scriptures are.  Unfortunately barely it is recognized, interpreted accurately Or realized by any in today's time.
17th-century astronomers Giovanni Cassini and Jean Richer pegged the distance from the Earth to the sun as 40 million kilometers. just nine million kilometers off from the now-official figure. They calculated the astronomical unit by using observations of Mars from two different spots on Earth, then used the difference between those two observations to calculate our…

How to see GOD?

Image
"Can you weep for Him with intense longing of heart?
 Men shed a jugful of tears for the sake of their children, for their wives, or for money. But who weeps for God? So long as the child remains engrossed with its toys, the mother looks after her cooking and other household duties. 
But when the child no longer relishes the toys, it throws them aside and yells for its mother. Then the mother takes the rice-pot down from the hearth, runs in haste, and takes the child in her arms."

-Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa

Vivekananda's Letter to his disciples

Image
"The hope lies in you—in the meek, the lowly, but the faithful. Have faith in the Lord. Feel for the miserable and look up for help—it shall come. I have traveled twelve years with this load in my heart and this idea in my head. I have gone from door to door of the so-called rich and great. With a bleeding heart I have crossed half the world to this strange land, seeking for help. The Lord is great. I know He will help me. I may perish of cold or hunger in this land, but I bequeath to you, young men, this struggle for the poor, the ignorant, the oppressed."

Letter, August 1893. The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda, Part-5. Page-16.

How to realize the SELF ?

Image
Questioner: How to realize the SELF ?

Sri Bhagavan : Everyone has experience of the SELF  every moment of his life.

Questioner: But, the SELF is not realized as one would like.

Sri Bhagavan: Yes. The present experience is viparita (different from real). What is not is confounded with what is.

Questioner: How to find the Atman (SELF) ?

Sri Bhagavan: There is no investigation into the Atman. The investigation can only be into the non-self. Elimination of the non-self is alone possible. The SELF being always
self evident, will shine forth of itself.

The SELF is called by different names -Atman, God, Kundalini, Mantra, etc. Hold any one of them and the SELF becomes manifest. God is no other than the SELF  Kundalini is now showing forth as the mind. When the mind is traced to its source it is Kundalini. Mantra japa leads to elimination of other thoughts and to concentration on the mantra. The mantra finally merges into the SELF and shines forth as the SELF.

Questioner: How long is a Guru necessary…

Super Brain Yoga

Image
As you can understand, this exercise, called Super Brain Yoga by the American World, is nothing but the simple Thoppukaranam, the reverential practice done by Hindus in front of Lord Ganesha's temple.



As per the medical research and subsequent report, doing these special kind of sit ups while holding the opposite earlobes help stimulate brain power and remember things better.




Hindus have been doing this Super Brain Yoga for ages in front of temples devoted to Lord Ganesha. In fact, I have observed that while crossing a Ganesha temple on road, most people stop, take off their footwear, perform Thoppukaranam, and then resume their journey. 




Lord Ganesha is associated with Knowledge/Memory, a point which is now proved by this research. 

Advantages of Super brain yoga,
Helps kids who suffer with Autism disorderHelps people who suffer from Alzheimer's diseaseIncreases intelligence for all age groupsIncreases right and left brain co-operation


But the saddening state is that some people he…

Indian Cricket > Indian Army

Image
Indian Government is ready to give 1 crore for each player in the Indian cricket team. The painful fact is the one crore is not given for the army men who died in the Uttarakhand rescue operations 2013. Too much importance to cricket makes the government to forget its real HEROES !!!. Are their lives so cheap ? Pity :( :(

Pilot who died in Uttarakhand put pilgrims ahead of himself


K Praveen, 27, a flight lieutenant from Madurai knew it was a daunting task. But, all he wanted was to rescue the people who were facing an even worse challenge in their lives. What kept the young Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot going against all odds at Uttarakhand was his sense of duty and the gratifying smile of the rescued pilgrims.

"There are no roads, no proper food and punishing weather here. But, we are happy when people thank us after we rescue them. We want to rescue all the people stranded here," he had told his mother on Tuesday morning. But, barely four hours later, the helicopter he was flying crashed, snuffing out Praveen's life and 19 others.

Flying was a passion for Praveen, a topper of his batch in BE Mechatronics department in Thiagarajar College of Engineering. Soon after he completed his engineering, Praveen worked for two months at an IT company, but soon wrote the combined defence examination. &…

Honest auto driver

Image
He could have been a billionaire overnight, but autorickshaw driver Raju Bharwad chose honesty over a cheque of Rs 1.9 crore sent in his name by Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation.
Bharwad was surprised to receive the cheque, which also had the name of his mother as the corecipient.
The accompanying letter said the money was being given to them in lieu of 10 bigha land that they owned at Sanand near the Tata Nano plant.

At a time when complaints of violence, land grabbing and forgery are on the rise in Sanand after the relocation of Tata Nano plant from West Bengal, Bharwad, who stays in Ahmedabad, rushed to the authorities to return the cheque.
"We did have 10 bigha land in that area but my father sold that plot for Rs 9 lakh 25 years ago.Today, several families are staying there," he said, adding that the ownership of the land was not transferred officially and had remained with Raju and his mother. "If I had accepted the money, the authorities would have bulldoze…

Soul Existence

Victorian doctor who weighed the human soul


Dr Duncan MacDougall tried to prove the existence of the human soul by measuring the weight of a person at the moment of death. He had 6 patients, all of which experienced weight loss of an average 21 grams.
This happened exactly in the year  1901 in Massachusetts where surgeon Dr. Duncan MacDougall attempted to prove the existence of the soul by weighing a person before, and right after, death. He hacked an industrial beam scale so that it could be attached to a hospital bed. Then, he began to seek out a subject in the terminally ill patients at the hospital. First up was a man dying of tuberculosis. 


According to MacDougall, “The instant life ceased, the opposite scale pan fell with a suddenness that was astonishing – as if something had been lifted from the body.” Apparently, 21 grams was missing from his body. MacDougall reproduced the experiment several more times. The physician's work has become a classic tale that, of course, is stil…

Atman

Image
Atman dwells in the heart of every living being, yet It is not perceived by ordinary mortals because of Its subtlety.

 It cannot be perceived by the senses, a finer
spiritual sight is required. 

The heart must be pure and freed from every unworthy selfish desire, the thought must be in-drawn from all external objects. Mind and body must be under control. 

When the whole being thus becomes calm and serene, then it is possible to perceive that effulgent Atman.

 It is subtler than the subtle, because It is the invisible essence of every thing and It is greater than the great because It is the boundless, sustaining power of the whole universe, that upon which all existence rests.

-Katha Upanishad

Lieutenant Manish Singh 9th Battalion, The Parachute Regiment (Special Forces), Shaurya Chakra
Lieutenant Manish Singh is troop commander with 9th Battalion the Parachute Regiment since 01 Apr 2011.

As part of search and destroy operation of 30 RR at general area of Kupwara District in Jammu and Kashmir on 25 September 2012, his squad was tasked to track escaping terrorists through terraced maize fields. During the search, a terrorist suddenly opened indiscriminate fire injuring Lieutenant Manish Singh and pinning down his squad. 

In a display of extreme courage and utter disregard for his own safety, despite his injuries, Lt Manish crawled forward and kept the terrorist pinned down. During the encounter, the officer displayed leadership of the highest order in refusing to be evacuated and notwithstanding his grievous injuries and blood loss, held on to his position. 

Finally as the terrorist charged upon him, he shot him dead at near point blank range. His courageous action ensured the s…

Willingness to learn

Image
Learn to give. There is immense joy in giving. Very few can understand this. Learn to resign to the will of God. There is indescribable peace in self-surrender. Very few can realize this. Learn to discriminate. There is ineffable bliss in discriminating between the real and the unreal. Very few can recognize this. Learn to be dispassionate. There is eternal satisfaction in cultivating Vairagya. Very few can know this. -Swami Sivananda.
