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…
