This was another exciting year for PnJ. This year our focus was on Vedic Math and we released 3 books on Vedic Math. We also started conducting courses for younger kids.
        The first book we released was 'Vedic Math for 8th class', second book was 'Vedic Math primary school arithmetic' and third book is 'Drawing and Feeling Math'. Vedic Math courses and books got very good response from all of you and I want to Thank you for your affection.
        Recently we launched an interesting course and this is to learn math with craft, art, acting and gaming. Everyone including us are thrilled with this. 
        We even released a book of Kalyani's Poems (Najar) and many people liked it. Some of them sent awesome reviews, some others sent their notes on her poems. Some are reading them regularly and presenting it in public forums with prior permission.
        In coming year, we want to design and deliver new courses and I want to publish my next research…

बंधन

Image
ही कविता आहे वेगवेगळ्या नात्यांत स्वतःला घालून घेतलेल्या बंधनाची, जे बंधन दिसत नाही. पण हळू हळू ज्या तत्वांच्या आधारावर आयुष्य आखलं,जगलो, त्याचच अस्तित्व हे बंधन नाकारते.
कुठल्यातरी वळणावर हा निर्णय घ्यावाच लागतो की priority नक्की काय आहे?हा वैचारिक कोलाहल मांडणारी ही कविता ...




मऊ मुलायम गोधडीत कशी गुरफटून बसली आहेत ती उगीचच नाही बरं का जीवापाड जपली आहेत ती त्यांना स्पर्श आहे, वास आहे आठवणी आहेत, भास आहे ती आहेत म्हणून का माझा श्वास आहे? कदाचित...... पण सांग ना मी काय जपू ?नाती का तत्व कशाला देऊ मी महत्व?

थोडी संसारी आहेत ती- असणारच रुसवे फुगवे थोडेफार दिसणारच आणि ती आहेत म्हणून तर आधार आहे असं कसं सोडणार त्यांना, मला घर-दार आहे तू म्हणशील आता याला ममत्व बिमत्व पण सांग ना मी नाती जपू ना.. की तत्व?

तत्वांचे काय रे? त्यांची फकीराची जात तसं हल्ली कोणी त्यांच्या वाटेलाही नाही जात आणि प्रसंगाच्या वेळी तत्व वगैरे का येतात? कुणास ठाऊक कशाला एवढे गोडवे गातात? कशाला त्यांना महत्व? मग जपू ना नातीच मी..

जिथे ओढ तिथे थोडी तडजोड सगळं मानावं लागतच गोड खुणा आहेत त्यांच्या देहावर, बुद्धीवर त्यांनी केलय आत खोलवर एक घर नाही.. मी…

Why remedies like ‘Pooja’ or ‘Shanti’ sometimes don’t work?

Image
Many times, when we go to astrologers they suggest us conventional remedies. These remedies include Mantra, Vrata, Pooja, Shanti and so on. Sometimes these remedies work and sometimes they don’t. Similarly, some astrologers suggest gemstones and even gemstones don’t always work. You may wonder, how come sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. In today’s blog post we are understanding this. Hindu philosophy describes 3 different types of challenges or Taapa. The challenges are ‘Aadhyatmik’ or personality related, ‘Aadhibhouthik’ or related to material things and ‘Aadhidhaivik’ or related to various energies or Devathas. Curious if you remember, when we were kids some people used to tell us sarcastically to study for exams rather than visiting temple and sometimes we did feel that it is correct because if preparations for exam are not complete then temple visit may not be helpful either. Incomplete preparations are an Aadhyatmik challenge. If we lack in any skills, first we shall b…

The mystic meaning of Shree Saraswathi Yanthram

Image
Recently someone asked me about the scientific meaning of Shree Saraswathi Yanthram and I thought many of you may have same question. Many Hindus have been drawing and praying Shree Saraswathi Yanthram or Shree Saraswathi sign since childhood. Many of you may know that Shree Saraswathi is a goddess of 14 Vidya or sources of knowledge and 64 Kala or art forms. Therefore, she is also a goddess of creation and creativity. On another note Shakthi is represented by a triangle in Vedic culture. The real meaning of word Shakthi is skill. You may wonder why a skill is represented by a triangle. A skill is represented by a triangle because a skill requires perfect coordination between Mind, Body & Intellect. The 3 sides of a triangle represent Mind, Body & Intellect. Let’s learn about Shree Saraswathi Yanthram in this context. Below is a picture of Shree Saraswathi Yanthram. As you observe the picture closely you may learn that the Yantra has many triangles. In first row you may s…

Holi Hai!!! – Plan for a prosperous and joyful new year

Image
Every Indian festival has a purpose and the purpose is relevant even today. Today I want to discuss a bit about structure of an Indian year and purpose of Holi. As you may be aware, Indian culture has 3 key gods i.e. Branhma, Vishnu and Mahesh or Shiva and similarly 3 goddesses i.e. Devi Saraswathi, Mahalakshmi and Mahakali. The roles of the 3 gods and goddesses are also defined. Brahma and Devi Saraswathi are creators, Vishnu and Mahalakshmi are nurturers finally lord Shiva and Mahakali are destroyers. Lord Ganesha is also considered as representation of Brahma. According to Hindu philosophy this cycle of creation, nurturing and destruction is a continuous cycle. Shree Swami Vivekananda gave an analogy of waves in an ocean to this cycle. Another interesting principle in Vedic literature is “Yatha Pinde tatha brahmande| Yatha Brahamande tatha Pinde” or what you observe at micro level is also observable at mega level or vice versa. This is perfectly scientific based on holographic theory…

Vedic Math : Primary school arithmetic is live

Image
Almost 4 months ago we published Vedic Math for 8th class. When I released that book the plan was to publish books for all classes. You may be aware that every book is independent and does not require any prior knowledge of Vedic Math. Even then, it is nice to know the basics really well. Therefore, I decided to first cover primary school arithmetic.         This book mainly covers simple methods of all 4 arithmetic operations i.e. Addition, Subtraction, multiplication and division. It also covers methods to develop multiplication tables and checking answers.         The focus of Vedic methods is on mental math. Methods of multiplication and division in Vedic math are special. They are quick and easy. Interestingly one of the methods for multiplication is also applicable to division. Once you learn these methods algebra becomes easier. 
        This book is most appropriate for pupils in 4th or 5th class. First 9 chapters are also helpful to pupils in 1st and 2nd class as well. I do plan…
