An ancient book called Yoga Vasistha describes War Machines or Robots prepared by Sambarasura(well known to have mystic powers and could raise himself in the sky and fight from outer space) They were three in number and were named as Dama, Vyala and Kata. Kata was like a modern tank protecting army. The word ‘Kat’ means to go, to cover. It could go and cover the army so the name. The name ‘Dama’ is derived from the root Dam which means to tame, subdue, conquer, restrain of course the enemy. ‘Vyala’ means vicious, fierce, cruel, savage like tiger or snake. Those three Robots were lifeless machines and therefore had no sentiments, no emotions, so they were never defeated. They always won the wars against Adityas (gods). So Adityas played a trick to induce sentiments and emotions in them. They fought with the three Robots and ran away, many times,with defeat. This induced Ego in the Robots.Ego arises as the robots were thinking due to artificial intelligence.At the same time Adit

Simhika, the gigantic demon had the power to attract anything’s shadow flying over ocean and pull it into the waters.However, that was on the way to Lanka. Brahmanda Purana (composed more than 5000 years ago) and Rig Veda (written more than 23000 years ago) clearly state that the planet Mars was born our of Earth.That is why he is called as Bhauma (‘son of Bhumi’) or Kuja (Ku = Earth + Ja = Born out of ) in Sanskrit.

Mahabharata today has 100,000 slokas and is believed to be written by Sage Veda Vyasa, but in reality it was narrated by him and written by Lord Ganesha.When first narrated, it had only 8,800 slokas and Mahabharata original name was ‘Jaya‘ (Jayam) as written by Ganesha. Then Vyasa’s disciple Vaisampayana narrated this story to King Janamejaya (Pariskshit’s son and Abhimanyu’s grandson) along with additional and elaborated stories, during Sarpa Yaagam (A Yagna that is performed to bring snakes to extinction by letting them burn in flames as a revenge against Takshaka, a snake who killed King Parikshit)This made it expand to 24,000 slokas and was named ‘Vijaya (Vijayam)‘ and then renamed it as ‘Bharata‘. In next generation, Ugrasravas, belonged to the Suta caste, who were typically the bards of Puranic literature, narrated this story to sage Saunaka and other sages in Naimisa forest.Ugrasravas (also named as Suta muni or Suta Goswami) was the son of sage Lomaharshana and belong to

Varaha avatar

चित्र
Among the avatars (incarnations) of Vishnu, Sweta Varaha (White Rhinoceros) is the third.Popular notion is that Varaha avatar is a wild boar (or pig) which restored earth(land) from completely sinking into water.But in reality, Sweta Varaha Avatar is Elasmotherium, which is ancestor of present day’s Rhinoceros.This Avatar took place at the time of deluge ending the Padma kalpa and after restoration of earth, the next kalpa (the present one) was named after this avatar as ‘Sweta Varaha Kalpa‘.Mahabharata describes the Varaha as triple humped, as shown in the Harappan iconography. The original Rhino image existed on coins and symbols of Gupta dynasty and prior.However, the boar and its relative the pig started emerging as replacement for original Elesmotherium or Rhino and they were being seen as polluting animals since the 12th century, due to Islam influence on India.Muslims consider the pig and its meat unclean. This led to a decline in Varaha worship to a certain extent.Now we c

Pre Islamic Goddesses Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, Manat

चित्र
In the Qur’an, Al-Lat is mentioned along with al-‘Uzzá and Manāt in Sura 53:19–23.The tribe of ʿād of Iram of the Pillars is also mentioned in Sura 89:5–8, and archaeological evidence from Iram shows copious inscriptions devoted to her for the protection of a tribe by that name. Al-lāt is also explicitly attested from early Islamic records discussing the pre-Islamic period. According to the Book of Idols (Kitāb al-ʾAṣnām) by Hishām ibn al-Kalbi, the pre-Islamic Arabs believed Al-lāt resided in the Kaʿbah and also had an idol inside the sanctuary. Al-‘Uzzá was also worshipped by the Nabataeans, who equated her with the Greek goddess Aphrodite Ourania (Roman Venus Caelestis).A stone cube at aṭ-Ṭā’if (near Mecca) was held sacred as part of her cult.She is mentioned in the Qur’an Sura 53:19 as being one of the goddesses that people worshiped. The temple dedicated to al-‘Uzzá and the statue itself was destroyed by Khalid ibn al Walid in Nakhla in 630 AD. Shortly after the Conque

Benefit of Wooden Sleepers India

Benefit of Wooden Sleepers India:-पुरातन समय में हमारे पूर्वज पैरों में लकड़ी के खड़ाऊ (चप्पल) पहनते थे। पैरों में लकड़ी के खड़ाऊ पहनने के पीछे भी हमारे पूर्वजों की सोच पूर्णत: वैज्ञानिक थी। गुरुत्वाकर्षण का जो सिद्धांत वैज्ञानिकों ने बाद में प्रतिपादित किया उसे हमारे ऋषि-मुनियों ने काफी पहले ही समझ लिया था। उस सिद्धांत के अनुसार शरीर में प्रवाहित हो रही विद्युत तरंगे गुरुत्वाकर्षण के कारण पृथ्वी द्वारा अवशोषित कर ली  जाती हैं । यह प्रक्रिया अगर निरंतर चले तो शरीर की जैविक शक्ति(वाइटल्टी फोर्स) समाप्त हो जाती है। इसी जैविक शक्ति को बचाने के लिए हमारे पूर्वजों ने पैरों में खड़ाऊ पहनने की प्रथा प्रारंभ की ताकि शरीर की विद्युत तंरगों का पृथ्वी की अवशोषण शक्ति के साथ संपर्क न हो सके। इसी सिद्धांत के आधार पर खड़ाऊ पहनी जाने लगी। उस समय चमड़े का जूता कई धार्मिक, सामाजिक कारणों से समाज के एक बड़े वर्ग को मान्य न था और कपड़े के जूते का प्रयोग हर कहीं सफल नहीं हो पाया। जबकि लकड़ी के खड़ाऊ पहनने से किसी धर्म व समाज के लोगों के आपत्ति नहीं थी इसीलिए यह अधिक प्रचलन में आए। कालांतर में यही ख

Bhagwan Shri Krishna Ki Mrityu Kaise Hui (भगवान श्री कृष्ण की मृत्यु कैसे हुई):?-महाभारत पर आधारित अधिकांश पौराणिक कथाओं की माने तो महाभारत की सभी घटनाओं के लिए भगवान श्रीकृष्ण को ही जिम्मेदार माना गया है. उन्होंने ही धर्म की संस्थापना के लिए महाभारत युद्ध को होने दिया लेकिन ऐसा करने के बाद अर्थात हस्तिनापुर में धर्म की संस्थापना के बाद भगवान श्रीकृष्ण ने क्या खोया यह आज भी लोगों के लिए जिज्ञासा का विषय है. गांधारी का शाप युद्ध के बाद महर्षि व्यास के शिष्य संजय ने जब गांधारी को इस बात की जानकारी दी कि अपने साथियों के साथ पांडव हस्तिनापुर में दस्तक दे चुके हैं तो उनका दुखी मन गम के सागर में गोते लगाने लगा, सारी पीड़ा एकदम से बाहर आ गई. उनका मन प्रतिशोध लेने के लिए व्याकुल हो रहा था इसके बावजूद भी वह शांत थी, लेकिन जब उन्हें यह पता चला कि पांडवों के साथ भगवान श्रीकृष्ण भी है तो वह आग बबूला हो गईं. वह सभा में जाकर श्रीकृष्ण पर क्रोधित होने लगी और कहा कि “तुम्हे विष्णु का अवतार कहा जाता है, तुम्हारी भगवान की तरह पूजा की जाती है लेकिन जो तुमने काम किया है वह काफी शर्मनाक है”. महान त
