Purusha Suktam – New Revelations..

Introduction

I have been reading Purusha Suktham for some time trying to map what the sages were trying to say. In fact in the very first few readings itself, I differed in the explanations and commentaries that have been written on Purusha Suktham by many sages of the past and the repetition of those commentaries by the current Western and Indian Scholars.

Faith is NOT Positive Thinking

Are faith and positive thinking synonymous..? Or is faith the basis of positive thinking..?

On the surface, though it appears that either they are synonymous or faith is the basis of positive thinking, on deeper analysis, I think, it is not so.

Some people suggest that either faith is positive thinking or faith is the basis of positive thinking.

According to our scriptures, Positive Thinking is of passionate or Rajas nature and not the correct method to be followed. We need Saatvik Faith, which is balanced thinking and not Positive Thinking.

Sapta Chakras

Introduction

In my previous article on Gayatri, I had discussed about how Gayatri Mantra explains the Big Bang and the expansion of Universe.

In my article on AUM, I had explained how AUM maps to standard model of Universe as it is known today.
Refer https://medhajournal.com/articles/philosophy/aum—an-analysis.html .

During the course of that discussion, I had written about the seven lokas, which are nothing but stages of evolution of Universe, upto our planet Earth. I would be mapping the seven lokas to current theory of formation of Universe later in some other blog.

This article is about Sapta Chakras. I interpret the Sapta Chakras as the seven stages of development of a child in its mother's womb.

Gayatri — The Big Bang

Introduction

I had already written an article on AUM from a scientific perspective, mapping AUM to Universe through particle physics and states of matter. This article is about Gayatri Mantra.

Gayatri Mantra is held next to AUM in most hindu scriptures. It is one mantra that is common to many sects of Hinduism. All seers and saints of various sects of hinduism and scriptures of various hues talk very high of Gayatri Mantra, though they interpret it differently.

Existentially Non Existent…

From me, Lord Venkateshwara

I don’t know when I came here, but it should have been several centuries before. From those days to this day there have been lot of changes around me.

Once upon a time, I used to see a vast empty space behind my ‘praharam’. There used to be less number of people wishing to see me that time. It is difficult to climb seven hills and reach me. Only those who are bent on getting their wishes fulfilled from me would bother to climb up all the way and come.

AUM – An Analysis

An analysis of Madukya Upanishad in a modern perspective. So much of knowledge our ancestors accumulated, expressed in upanishads, have not been carried across times. They have been given more worldly colorings leading to diultion of the impact of upanishads on society.

Sitting here we can only map such utterings to what we know or able to infer. But as our current scientific knowledge expands, we may be able to understand upanishads better and who knows they can even help us understand science better.

I see a lot of sense and values in many methods, techniques used by our ancestors, which has come out of their hard life experiences, but somewhere the baton has not been handed over properly and such knowledge has passed on to unscientific crooks, who exploit it for their selfish gains.
Again, this is my personal view. We cannot say for sure which is right or which is wrong. We need to adopt things that appear useful and move on..
