Annadaana Mahima-Chaturmasa Deeksha Vijayam

Annadaana Mahima-Chaturmasa Deeksha Vijayam

Annadana Mahima

“Annapurne sadapurne Shankara Pranavallabhe gnaana vairagya siddhyartham bhikshaam dehi cha Paarvati”

Oh dear Maata Annapurna, you are the divine consort of Lord Shiva, you are the personification of copious food, kindly grant us alms along with eternal wisdom!

You can listen to this mantra and learn to sing in the audio at http://www.pranakishore.com

and in the album “Om Shri Rama Hanuman Raksha CD” at I Tunes and Amazon

Pujya Ganapati Sachhidananda Swamiji always remembers the golden words of Lord Sri Krishna and tells us:

“The beings, both moving and unmoving, are sustained only by the food! Hence the donor of food is the giver of life and indeed of everything else! So, one who wants well-being on this earth and beyond , should make special efforts to share food with others! ‘Annadaana’ must be offered with due respect and hospitality to the poor, old, children, women, guests and the tired travelers!

“There is no greater merit in this creation than feeding the hungry”!

Significance of Chaturmasya

Bharatha maata is known as ‘Karma bhoomi’ which is unique with its significance for Vedic and religious culture and heritage.

Hindu philosophy and religion which is a combination of many traditions and cultures is closely associated with the Nature that plays a major role in performance of many festivals. Hinduism strongly believes in Puranas and Vedic principles that become the guiding factor for performance of these festivals and sacred rituals.

The main purpose of all Vedic rituals is ultimately to please the lord and the benefits of which are bountiful. As long as the vow is to perform a sacred and pious act it would definitely yield positive results and would bring pleasing rewards.

Pujas and dharmic activities go a long way in developing the mind frame. It is also believed that they generate a lot of positive energy that helps one in the struggle of life,control over wandering mind, discipline of life and does a lot of good to the physical as well as the mental abilities of an individual.

We all know that we have 12 months in a lunar calendar starting from Chaitra to Phalguna. Out of these 12 months 6 months starting from pushya (when Sun enters Makara Raasi) to jyeshtha falls under Uttaraayana while 6 months starting from Aashada (when Sun enters the KarkatakaRaasi) to Margasira falls under Dakshinayana. Uttarayana is the day time and Dakshinayana is the night time for Devataas.As per the time element,one year for human beings is equivalent to one full day for Devataas . Similarly one month for human beings is equivalent to 1 day for Pitru Devataas out of which Shukla Paksha (waxing moon days) 15 days is day time and Krishna Paksha (waning moon days) 15days is the night time for Pitrus.

Fire, illumination, daytime, fortnight before the full moon and Uttarayana are the paths for liberation. It means these are the periods or ways for spontaneous positive thinking and spiritual growth. So all concentrate and perform their personnel rituals more during Uttarayana only.

In order to give significance and importance for performing sacred and pious deeds during night time of Devataas, Lord Varaaha gave a boon to Raatri Devataa that, the following four months Shravana, Bhadrapada, Aaswayuja and kaarteeka would be very holy and dear to him.

These four months are called Chatur- maasa. Although, the word chaturmasya means four months of duration, it is performed for two months only, taking fortnight as a month as per the Shastras. Who ever performs sacred deeds(Snana, Japa, Homa, Vratha, Dana etc.) in a strict deeksha manner during these months would reap immense benefits out of it.

Deeksha means making a vow to perform austerities observing strict celibacy, avoiding prohibited foods,drinks, actions, unnecessary talks and most importantly dedicating ones self totally for Daiva chintana for full two months. With out any discrimination of age,gender,ashrama and caste this Deeksha can be performed by one and all.

Dear fellow devotees, in this competitive world can an ordinary person truly afford to pretermit responsibilities for such a lengthy extension of time? Then which is the next option available for us to accomplish the same  divine fruitions with out having to suspend our regular unavoidable activities?

The only answer by all Shastras is to approach and offer as much sincere service to Yateeshwaras during this holy period every year. Such Ascetics suspend their travel during that period, they do not cross the border of the city where they are sojourning. The learned  Yateeshwaras engage themselves in teaching and offering discourses for the benefit of their disciples and people in general. It is believed and experienced that the place where these selfless Yateeshwars stay and perform Chaturmasya Deeksha will flourish in wealth,prosperity and spiritual life.

Lord Rama’s 10 Principles For Happiness – Words Of Wisdom

Lord Rama’s 10 Principles For Happiness – Words Of Wisdom

 Following are some selected Words of Wisdom from Rama as relayed in the books on Rama that were written by Shakuntala Bodas.

 Happiness is the attitude of your mind. The mind needs to be trained to be at peace and filled with joy. Man is truly rich when he is fearless, unworried and at peace with himself.

No matter what the wealth of a man, if he yearns for more, he is poor. The wealthy man is the one who is beyond desires!

It is not the action, but the motive behind the action that is important! (Example: If a man kills another for his tennis shoes he is considered evil. If a man kills someone to protect children from being killed by another his act is noble and he is a hero to all. Yet in both cases, a man was killed.)

It is best not to criticize, for one gets into the habit of doing so. Learn to see God in everyone and everything!

 When we feel or display hard feelings toward others we create an opening for an attack from them and thus we suffer.

 Look within for peace and bliss!

 Cowardice is sin!

 God proves the devotee by means of severe ordeals. He tests his faith, endurance and patience. (I keep asking God, why do you keep testing my patience, you know I do not have any!)

 It is the nature of Rama never to leave any person who He comes into contact with him. That person may be pious or sinful, but Rama is the same toward that person. (Rama always refers to Himself in the third person and I can attest to the truth of His statement. It reminds me of Jesus telling His disciples I am with you always! They are/were one and the same and their statements reflect this.)

The Will of God is expressed in the Laws of Nature!

 We have to learn how to enjoy the Bliss of the sound sleep state in an awakened state.

 The happiest ones in the world are those that have the least number of desires. If you divide the number of desires fulfilled by the total number of desires you have, that will give you a measure of your happiness. If you have one good thing happen to you and you have no desires (1/0) your happiness becomes infinite

 Each person has a role to play in the cosmic drama. When a person egoistically determines that he is responsible for the part he plays; he is in trouble. He should perform his part and leave the credit for and the result in Gods hands, mentally relinquishing any egoistic part in the event. To make our will the Lords Will is the only sure way of eliminating the ego. (The reason that this has to be done is because if we have the slightest trace of ego we will never see what we really are, Divine! All that really exists is the One of which we are all a part.)

 Rama says attainment of the egoless condition is Realization of the Self!

 Life is not fair. Not true, life is completely fair, but not when considered within one lifetime. However, if we all have lived many lives then the experiences of the present life are caused by previous lives and thoughts. Rama said that all desires are eventually fulfilled for everyone, in this lifetime or the next, etc.

The personal ego of a Self-realized man does not disappear. It is under control of the Self. The man acts, appears as a man, seems to take pride in His actions, but the Self is really directing the show.

Surrender completely to the Divine, but have something worthy to surrender.

Total surrender has great strength in it. It brings down Lord Almighty to the side of the devotee; thereby the devotee becomes full of joy and happiness.

The mystic cultivates a spiritual yearning so that he may see his Beloved in all beings in nature and in space too!

Rama’s Ten Principles for Happiness-

Make Shri Rama Your Role Model

1. Remain wakeful and make a constant conscious effort to speak the Truth with your physical and mental organ of speech

2. Sound health is a very useful aid for you in spiritual progress. Thus try to keep your physical body healthy by eating properly and exercising regularly.

 3. Chant constantly the name of God with each breath in and out, faithfully and devotedly keeping your goal in mind and remaining wakeful.

 4. Avoid the habit of taking intoxicating drugs or alcohol which gives rise to lethargy.

5. No power on earth can take away my cheerfulness, courage and joy. Let this conviction be an inseparable part of your life. Try to always remain cheerful and happy.

 6. As far as possible try to be helpful and charitable to others with your physical actions, beneficial positive thoughts and agreeable speech. Do not hurt any ones heart.

 7. Holy company, righteous thoughts the study of the sacred scriptures and good behavior are the four things to be practiced respectfully in life always.

 8. No matter what inconvenience and pain you may have to undergo, never ever hate others, especially your near and dear ones. Make a continuous effort not to be disturbed, disappointed and restless.

 9. Leave aside laziness. With enthusiasm and regularity observe the disciplines of the spiritual practices and other observances for the complete development of the personality.

 10. With the remembrance of God and a pure, guileless and cheerful smile, try to perform your daily activities in the Light of Fearlessness, Unity and Bliss of that Supreme Being.

A life lived – based on these ten principles

will become enlightened and perfectly happy!

 

Bliss comes from within. It dwells in the heart! We must cleanse our hearts of all worldly impurities and then the ever Blissful Lord will shine out with His Glory and Blazing Light through all the pores of our bodies!

Ramayana in 2 Pages is part of Hinduism in one page blog for  quick reading of the basics in just 2 pages for people who are busy in their life but want to read and learn about Ramayana Fast.Period:Treta Yuga is 1,296,000 years.

Rama is said to have been born in the Treta Yuga to King Daśaratha in the Ikshvaku vamsa on 10 January, 5114 BCE.The story’s original version in Sanskrit is known as Valmiki Ramayana, dating to approximately the 5th to 4th century B.C. Every One Must be proud and Blessed to read Ramayana  Listen to Eka Slokaam Ramayanam Entire Ramayanam in Just 4 Lines Sang and composed by Prana Kishore  in his album “Om Shri Rama Hanuman Raksha” at www.pranakishore.com or I Tunes, Amazon World Wide

—————————————————————————————————————————-

The Ramayana (Sanskrit: रामायण, Rāmāyaṇa, IPA: [rɑːˈmɑːjəɳə Tamil: இராமாயணம், Irāmāyaṇam] ?) is one of the great epics of India. It is ascribed to the Hindu sage Valmiki and forms an important part of the Hindu canon (smṛti), considered to be itihāasa.[1] The Ramayana is one of the two great epics of India, the other being the Mahabharata.[2] It depicts the duties of relationships, portraying ideal characters like the ideal father, ideal servant, the ideal brother, the ideal wife and the ideal king.The name Ramayana is a tatpurusha compound of Rāma and ayana (“going, advancing”), translating to “Rama‘s Journey“. The Ramayana consists of 24,000 verses in seven books (kāṇḍas) and 500 cantos (sargas),[3] and tells the story of Rama (an avatar of the Hindu preserver-God Vishnu), whose wife Sita is abducted by the king of Sri Lanka, Ravan. Thematically, the Ramayana explores human values and the concept of dharma.[4]

Verses in the Ramayana are written in a 32-syllable meter called anustubh. The Ramayana was an important influence on later Sanskrit poetry and Indian life and culture. Like the Mahābhārata, the Ramayana is not just a story: it presents the teachings of ancient Hindu sages (Vedas) in narrative allegory, interspersing philosophical and devotional elements. The characters Rama, Sita, Lakshman, Bharata, Hanuman and Ravana are all fundamental to the cultural consciousness of India, Nepal, and many South-East Asian countries such as Thailand and Indonesia.

There are other versions of the Ramayana, notably the Ramavataram in Tamil, Buddhist (Dasaratha Jataka No. 461) and Jain adaptations, and also Cambodian, Indonesian, Philippine, Thai, Lao, Burmese and Malay versions of the tale.————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Ramayana in Two Pages

Ramayana is one of the two greatest epics of Hindu Mythology. This epic was written by the great writer Valmiki in Sanskrit and it was translated into many languages eventually. The story of Ramayan takes plac in Treta Yug, the second of the four yugas. Lord Vishnu is born in the avatar of Rama in this yuga.

Dasharatha is the king of Ayodhya and he has three wives, Kousalya, Sumitra, and Kaikeyi. He has four sons-Rama, from Kousalya; Lakshman and Shatrugna from Sumitra; and Bharata from Kaikeyi. Everyone in the family loves Rama the most and his father likes him the most too.

Vishwamitra, a great saint takes Rama and Lakshmana along with him to kill the evil powers so that he could perform the Yagas and rituals without any disturbances. Rama kills the demons and on their way home, Rama wins the Swayamvara of Sita, the daughter of Janaka Maharaja. All the brothers get married eventually.

Dasharatha thinks that time has come to make Rama the prince. Mandhara, an evil old lady pollutes Kaikeyi’s mind and since Kaikeyi has the power to ask Dasharatha for two wishes, she asks him to send Rama to forest for fourteen years and to make Bharatha his heir. Dasharatha couldn’t do anything and Rama after knowing about the whole matter accepts to go to forest. Sita and Lakshmana go along with him. They don’t know that Dasharatha died just after they have left the palace. Meanwhile Kaikeyi gets to know her mistake after her son tells her that he is ashamed of being her son.

After returning to the palace, Bharata gets to know about the events and goes to forest to request Rama to come back and be the king. But Rama refuses saying that he had to follow his fathers duties and gives Bharata his sandals. He goes to Ayodhya and rules the territory by keeping Rama’s sandals on the throne.

After sometime, a lady demon called Shurpanaka comes to the place where Rama is living and loves Lakshmana at the first sight. When she tries to seduce him, Lakshmana cuts her ears and nose. She goes to her brother, Ravana, the king of Lanka(now called Sri Lanka) and tells him about what happened. While telling this, she also tells him how beautiful Sita is and Ravana decides to take revenge on Rama.

He sends a golden deer to the place where Rama resides and Sita loves it and asks Rama to get it for her. Though Lakshmana warns Rama that it looks like soeme evil power, Rama goes to fulfill Sita’s wish. The deer which is an evil power makes Rama run after it for a long distance. A frustrated Rama kills it with an arrow. But the evil deer which transforms into an evil person cries out Sita, Lakshmana while dying. This worries Sita and she asks Lakshmana go and see if his brother is safe.

 Lakshmana says that it is just an evil plan and he tells her that nothing could happen to his brother. But Sita orders him to go and he has no option but to go. He draws a line around the hut they live in and pleads her not to cross that line under any event till they are back. After he leaves, Ravana comes in the form of a begger and asks for a some fod. Sita gets food and he asks her to come near and offer the food. Hesitatingly she crosses the line and he immediately transforms into his original self and with his magic power he makes the land on which they are to fly and he takes her to his empire.

After returning to the hut, Rama and Lakshmana find Sita missing and goes in search of her. On their journey, they meet some people who have seen in which direction Ravana went and follow the path they said. They meet Hanuman who is destined to help them. While going in the sky, Sita takes off all her jewelery and throws them by keeping in a cloth and tying it. The package falls in Hanuman’s hands. He shows Rama the jewelry and they recognize them as Sita’s. Hanuman is half human and half monkey and there are many people in that race, called vanaras, who are the followers of Sugriva, whom Rama saves from his evil brother. They decide to help Rama with Hanuman as the head of the lot.

Eventually they find that Ravana took Sita with him and he is the king of Lanka. Hanuman has the power to fly over oceans and he goes to Lanka to check if Sita is present there. He sees her and talks to her and says that Rama has sent her. He asks her to come with him but he says him that she would come if Rama takes her with him. But it is not possible to pass the ocean between Bharath(India) and Lanka. With the help of stones and rocks, the vanaras build a bridge across the ocean.

Rama, along with Lakshmana and the vanaras cross the bridge and go to Lanka. After a very long battle, Rama kills Ravana and brings Sita along with him. They come to Ayodhya after the fourteen years exile and Rama is crowned as the king.
