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

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…
