Hanuman Chalisa

on Tuesday, October 22, 2013

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 distance from Mars, which they then used to determine our distance from the sun. 

But our ancient Indian Astronomers have calculated this distance accurately long before them. The diameter of the sun multiplied by 108 gives this distance. The number 108 gets its importance in Hinduism from this calculation.

Shehla Masood

on Friday, October 11, 2013

Shehla Masood was an Indian environmentalist, wildlife and RTI activist. She was shot dead around 11:19 AM on August 16, 2011 by three persons who were hired by a local woman interior designer in front of her house in Bhopal while she was sitting in her car and was about to leave.Masood was constantly living under threat, as revealed by her in an interview before she was shot dead. Shehla Masood was aged 38 years old, unmarried, born into a Muslim family.

Masood was an activist working primarily on wildlife conservation, and also supported other causes like good governance, RTI Act, Police reforms, environment, women's rights & issues and transparency. She sat on a fast in support of Anna Hazare's India Against Corruption campaign. She was actively involved in raising issues related to the deaths of tigers in the various sanctuaries of Madhya Pradesh. Shehla herself was working for the Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Trust, organizing events for them from Srinagar to Kolkata to Delhi. She was about to leave for Boat Club in Bhopal to join the anti-government protest to bring the Jan Lokpal Bill when she was killed.She co-founded RTI Anonymous, a service for whistle blowers for filing anonymous Right to Information (RTI) Applications with Indian Government departments without getting victimized, with her friends just a few days before her death. Shehla Masood was posthumously awarded the award for her relentless effort under the category, 'Crusade Against Corruption'.

RTI activists are harassed and sometimes killed by corrupt officials protecting their own interests. In 2010 alone at least ten Right to Information activists were killed. Several of them, like Masood, were also environmental activists against illegal mining and the poaching of tigers. Indian police claim “vested interests” connected to these businesses are responsible for Masood’s murder.

Where are we heading? God save my country !!

How to see GOD?

on Saturday, October 05, 2013

"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

on Thursday, October 03, 2013

"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 ?

on Tuesday, October 01, 2013

QuestionerHow 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 for Self-Realization ?

Sri Bhagavan : Guru is necessary so long as there is the laghu (Pun on Guru = heavy ; laghu = light ). 

Laghu is due to the self-imposed but wrong limitation of the SELF  God, on being worshiped  bestows steadiness in devotion, which leads to surrender. On the devotee surrendering, God shows His mercy by manifesting as the Guru The Guru, otherwise God, guides the devotee, saying that God is in you and He is the SELF.  This leads to introversion of the mind and finally to Realization.

Effort is necessary up to the state of Realization  Even then the SELF should spontaneously become evident. Otherwise, happiness will not be complete. Up to that state of spontaneity, there must be effort in some form or another.

Questioner: Our work-a-day life is not compatible with such efforts.

Sri Bhagavan : Why do you think that you are active ? Take the gross example of
your arrival here. You left home in a cart, took train, alighted at the Railway Station here, got into a cart there and found yourself in this Ashram. When asked, you say that you traveled here all the way from your town. Is it true ? It is not a fact. You remained as you were and there were movements of conveyances, all along the way. Just as those movements are confounded with your own, so also the other activities. They are not your own. They are God's activities.

Questioner: Such idea will lead to blankness of mind and the work will not progress well.

Sri Bhagavan : Go up to that blankness and tell me afterwards.

Questioner: They say that a visit to Sages helps Self-Realization ?

Sri Bhagavan : Yes. So it does.

Questioner: Will not my present visit to you bring it about ?

Sri Bhagavan : (After a short pause) 

What is to be brought about ? To whom ?
Consider ; investigate. 
To whom is this doubt ? If the source is traced
the doubt will disappear.
