GENERALLY RUDRAKSHA=ULTIMATE TALISMAN IN SANATANA DHARMA "THERE IS ALMOST NOTHING ABOUT THE POWERS OF GEMS IN SHASTRA, BUT SHASTRAS ARE FULL OF QUOTES PRAISING RUDRAKSHA"

Dos Mukhi (Ten faces) -Ruling Deity: Pra Sri Maha Vishnu - Ruling Planets: Sri Navaratna: 10 mukhi is the most ideal seed to set with the nine jyotish gems to achieve Nava Graha shanta or pacification of all the 9 planets. Shakti: To acquire the mercy and protection of Lord Vishnu in all His Ten Incarnations. Also known to pacify Nava-graha or the Nine Jyotish Planets (Nava-graha shanta). Good fortune in all respects. Mantra: Om Dos Vaktrasya Om Hrim Namah.

Lord Vishnu, major god of Hinduism and Indian mythology, popularly regarded as the preserver of the universe. Some Puranic literature refers to him as the eternal, all-pervading spirit and associates him with the primeval waters believed to have been omnipresent before the creation of the world. So regarded, Vishnu is depicted frequently in human form, sleeping on the great serpent Shesha and floating on the waters. One hand holds a lotus; a second holds a conch; a third holds a discus (which always returns by itself after being thrown); and the fourth carries a mace. The petals of the lotus are believed to symbolize the unfolding of creation; the conch is said to symbolize that from which all existence originates; and the discus and the mace reputedly were obtained by Lord Vishnu as rewards for defeating the God Indra.

Lord Vishnu is said to possess also a special sword called Nadaka and a special bow called Sarnga. His wife is Goddess Lakshmi (also known as Shri), goddess of beauty and fortune. He rides a huge creature, half bird and half man, called Gandara. His home is in a heaven called Vaikuntha (where the Ganges River is believed to flow from its source at Vishnu's feet). The god has a thousand names, the repetition of which is regarded as an act of devotion. The representing deity of 10 mukhi is Lord Narayana (The Preserver). It helps the wearer to overcome difficult times and ensures that the wearer and the family of the wearer is protected. It creates a feeling of security. It works like a shield on one's body and drives evils away. Wearer is protected from influence of evil spirit , ghosts and black magic. There is no ruling planet for this bead and it pacifies all negative planetary energy. One wears this by the blessings of Lord Mahavishnu. Excellent for narayana bhaktas (devotees). One gets the power to concentrate well. Also aids in devotion and meditation.

Excerpts from Holy Books

Siva Purana Vidyesvara Samhita Translated by Shastri 1973. Siva said- O Siva Mahesani be pleased to hear the greatness of Rudraksha. I speak out of love for you from a desire for the benefit of the devotee of Siva.

O Mahesani formerly I had been performing penance for thousands of divine years. Although I had controlled it rigorously my mind was in flutter. Out of sport, I being self possessed just opened my eyes. O Goddess, from a desire of helping the worlds, drops of tears fell from my beautiful half closed eyes. From those tear drops there cropped up the Rudraksha Plants.

They became immobile. In order to bless the devotees they were given to the four varnas devoted to worship of Visnu.

O Parmesvari no other necklace or garland is observed in the world to be so auspicious and fruitful as the Rudraksha.

People of all varnas and Asramas even Women and Sudras can wear Rudraksa at the bidding of Siva. The Ascetics shall wear it with the Pranava.

Even the devotees of Visnu and other Dieties shall unhesitatingly wear the Rudraksa. Especially the devotee of Rudra shall wear Rudraksha always.

O Mahesani, Rudraksa with ten faces is Lord Janardana Himself. O Devasi by wearing it the devotee shall achieve the fulfillment of all desires.

Seeing a devotee with the garland of Rudraksas O Parvati, Siva, Visnu, devi, Ganapati, the Sun and all the gods are pleased.

Srimaddevibhagavat 11th Skand Chapter IV, Narayana said-

Ten Mukhi Rudraksa is Visnu and removes all the tears and troubles due from planets, evil powers and snakes.

Chapter V,God said-

Wearer of Rudraksa on hair tuft on the crown, in ear, in neck, in hand and in abdomen attains the status of Siva, Visnu and Brahma.

Mantramaharnava, Lord Siva said-

A Rudraksha with 10 Faces is General of an army and is also Visnu Himself. It sublimates the malefic effects of planets, evil powers and eliminates snakes.

12 Mukhi Rudraksh         Twelve Mukhi Rudraksh

Listed references from the Holy Books of India that are made specific to the 12 Mukhi Rudraksh.

The 12 Mukhi Rudraksh is the Centre of Brilliancy and Lustre and Radiance and Strength of 12 forms of the God The Sun (SURYA). The wearer of 12 mukhi rudraksh gets the quality of Surya to move continuously with brilliant radiance and strength. Twelve mukhi Rudraksh gives knowledge and riches and all the earthly pleasures and is found miraculously effective.

In the Srimaddevibhagavat 11th Skand Chapter V verse 25 to 26 it is stated "According to Jabala, instinct for wearing Rudraksa results only after attaining the perfection of Vedas and Blessings of Lord Siva during preceding births".

The 12 Gifts of Surya

• Om Mitraya Namaha Light of Universal Friendship

• Om Ravaye Namaha Light of Compelling Radiance

• Om Suryaya Namaha Dispeller of Darkness or Ignorance

• Om Bhanave Namaha Shining Principle

• Om Khagaya Namaha All Pervadeing Light

• Om Pushne Namaha Light of Mystic Fire

• Om Hiranyagarbhaya Namaha Golden Colored One Healing Gold

• Om Marichaye Namaha Light obvious and subtle as at dawn and dusk

• Om Aditaya Namaha Light of the Sage an aspect of Vishnu

• Om Savitre Namaha Light of Enlightenment

• Om Arkaya Namaha Light That Removes Afflictions

• Om Bhaskaraya Namaha Brilliance The Light of Intelligence

In the Srimaddevibhagavat 11th Skand Chapter IV verse 27 to 29 it is stated "12 Mukhi Rudraksh appeases Surya and provides the benefit that accrues from Gomedha and Asvamedha yajnas.

Twelve mukhi Rudraksh dispels fear of armed men, horned animals and lion. The wearer of 12 mukhi Rudraksh never suffers from physical and mental pains. Thus it makes the man fearless and trouble free to lead the life like the god himself."

Appropriate Rudraksa Combinations according to Birth Naksatras with Ruling Planet Surya

• Krittika --- 1 Mukhi, 12 Mukhi and 11 Mukhi

• Uttaraphalguni --- 1 Mukhi, 12 Mukhi and 11 Mukhi

• Uttarashadha --- 1 Mukhi, 12 Mukhi and 11 Mukhi

• Singh --- 1 Mukhi, 12 Mukhi

The 12 Mukhi Rudraksh is one of the most important Rudraksha to be worn by any person who needs to attract knowledge and riches and all the earthly pleasures. This Rudraksa is the most useful for the administrators. The person who wears the Twelve Mukhi Rudraksh gets administrative capacity limitlessly. The 12 Mukhi Rudraksh must be worn by politicians and businessmen and aspirants of name and fame.
   

 

14 mukhi    

   Srimad Devi Bhagavat 11th Canto, Chap. III. Lord Vishnu said, "A man wearing fourteen mukhi Rudraksa becomes highly auspicious, like Lord Shiva. Anyone who wears even one Rudraksha seed is always admired like saintly men and deities and can even attain liberation."

Srimad Devi Bhagavat 11th Canto, Chapter V verse 25 to 26 it is stated, "The desire for wearing Rudraksha is the result of attaining the perfection of knowledge and Blessings of God during previous births."

Padma Puranam, Chapter 57, Sri Bhagavan said, "If a man always wears a Rudraksa with fourteen mouths, permeated with God's auspicious power, he is always honored and blessed by the demigods due to the greatness of his religious merit."

"Na vaishnavanam-yatha-shamboh!!!" - Shastra quotes, "There is NO Vaishnava equal to Shamboo!." So what could be more Vaishnava oriented!? How does Shukra remind us about Krishna any more than Shiva?

Hinduism has very few real talismans. Shalagram, Tulasi, etc., these are not talismans. These are causeless bhakti. A strict devotee never seeks good luck. The gems are also "karma misra bhakti" as is Rudraksha. Gems are hardly 10% as powerful as Rudraksha. And Shukradeva has hardly 10% of the greatness of Lord Shiva. Rudraksha is in fact the ultimate talisman in Sanatana Dharma. They are pure blessing of God, in His form as "Param Vaishnava Shankar." If any devotee (of any God) wants good luck they need look no further than Rudraksha and Gems. And if they are not caring about good luck, then they should take 100% shelter of Krishna, come what may.

Padma Puranam, Chapter 57, Sri Bhagavan uvaca, "If a man always wears a Rudraksa, especially with fourteen mouths, permeated with God's auspicious power, he is always honoured and blessed by the demigods due to the greatness of his religious merit."---THIS is Lord Vishnu speaking.

There are many Vedic quotes by Lord Hari Himself praising Rudraksha. There is almost NOTHING about the powers of gems in Shastra, but Shastras are FULL of quotes praising Rudraksha.

And these Rudrakshas have different attributes noticed since thousands of years. Shaat-mukhi (6 faced) is related to Venus. And tantric Diamond also relates to Venus. So in absence of a BIG diamond, a combination of 6 faced Rudraksha with smaller diamond is a "double Venus" talisman... For GOOD LUCK, which is Karma misra bhakti.

Also, Rudraksha cost almost nothing compared to gems. They are 10 times more potent. For example, for Sade Sati there is nothing better on Earth than 14 faced Rudraksha, and has been so for thousands of years. No gem can come close.

For pure causeless bhakti there is no desire for talismans. And karma-misra-bhakti can use gems and Rudraksha. Of the two, Rudraksha of Param Bhagavat Lord Shiva Mahadeva is far superior with 0 bad effects and all auspicious for anyone. Thank God!!!

3 Mukhi Rudraksha as referenced in books of knowledge        

3 Mukhi Rudraksha Bead is Known to be one of the most powerful Rudraksha for stopping all problems created in the past and existing in the present moment and about to take place in the Future. This Rudraksha Bead combined with appropriate Mantras helps to dramatically change a persons life for the better in the 40 days it takes to complete an initial Mantra Discipline. The 3 Mukhi Rudraksha Bead is a life saver.

Quoting the following from the information referenced in the Highly Auspicious Book titled RUDRAKSA - Properties and Biomedical Implications by Mr. Subas Rai.

In the SIVA PURANA Vidyesvara Samhita Translated by Shastri 1973

Suta said

Rudraksa is a favorite bead of Siva. It is highly sanctifying. It removes all sins by sight, contact and japas

SIVA said

If a man is not liberated after Meditation and acquisition of Knowledge, he shall wear Rudraksha. He shall be freed from all sins and attain the highest goal. A Rudraksha of 3 Faces always bestows means of enjoyment. As a result of its power all lores become firmly established.

O daughter of king of mountains thus I have explained to you the different types of Rudraksas based on the number of faces. Please listen to the mantras with devotion

Klim...Obessiance...3 Faced Rudraksha Bead

In the PADMA PURANA Chapter 57 Translated by Bhatta 1989

THE LORD Said

The one with three mouths is Fire Himself; the sin earned in the past births of him on whom it remains is burnt as fire burns fuel. A wise man obtains that fruit which is obtained by worshipping Fire or by rites of honoring Fire or by offering the oblation of ghee; and also obtains heaven. He who wears a Rudraksa of three mouths on his body is like Brahma on the earth. It would burn all the sins due to wicked deeds collected in birth after birth. There would be not disease in his belly; he would not be sick. He is never defeated, and his house is not burnt by fire. These and all other fruits are obtained and destructive weapons also are warded off. Nothing inauspicious happens due to wearing of Rudraksa of three mouths i.e. when a Rudraksa of three mouths is worn on one's person.

In the RUDRAKSAJABALOPANISAD

KALAGNI RUDRA replied

The one with three faces is Fire Himself, which on wearing pleases all the three Fire deities.

In the Introduction Section of the Book RUDRAKSA Planetary Correlations and Astrological Implications of Rudraksa are detailed as follows -:

Three Mukhi

Its ruling planet is Mars, which astrologically represents fire. This planet governs blood, head, neck, ears, testis, bone marrow, genital organs, kidney, red blood corpuscles ( RBC ) Vitamin K. This mukhi is supposed to cure diseases such as, blood defect, plague, small pox, blood pressure, weakness, bone fracture, disturbed menstrual cycle, spontaneous abortion, ulcer, wounds, etc. caused by the malefic effects of Mars.

In the Book Gems and Rudraksha by Mr. Anil Gupta he describes the Values and Merits of the 3 Mukhi Rudraksha Bead as follows

Three Faced Rudraksha has three natural lines. Its ruling planet is Mars and it is the symbol of god Agni ( fire ). The Agni ( fire ) purifies every thing in the same way, the wearer of 3 Faced Rudraksha gets rid of the sins that he had done in his past life and returns to the purely true life. It is the best for those who have fallen prey to inferiority complex or fear stricken and suffer from self hatred or mental strain.

In a short time after wearing it, the wearer feels its influence by attaining success in his efforts, favorable means, learning and knowledge. Its another best virtue is that it makes the wearer free from chronic fever certainly. Modern physicists and allopathic doctors accept that the patient of the fever that comes after every 3 days, is cured.

It contains the Trinity of gods Brahma and Vishnu and Mahesh and the trinity of Gunaas Sattva and Rajas and Tamas and the three spheres The Sky The Earth and The Paatal with their divine powers. For its divine powers this bead is the most sacred and powerful and the best.

About Parad      

  Mercury is a naturally occurring element that is found in air, water and soil. It exists in several forms: elemental or metallic mercury, inorganic mercury compounds, and organic mercury compounds.

Mercury is an element in the earth's crust. Humans cannot create or destroy mercury. Pure mercury is a liquid metal, sometimes referred to as quicksilver that volatizes readily. It has traditionally been used to make products like thermometers, switches, and some light bulbs.

Mercury is found in many rocks including coal. When coal is burned, mercury is released into the environment. Coal-burning power plants are the largest human-caused source of mercury emissions to the air  Burning hazardous wastes, producing chlorine, breaking mercury products, and spilling mercury, as well as the improper treatment and disposal of products or wastes containing mercury, can also release it into the environment.

Mercury and its compounds have been used in medicine, although they are much less common today than they once were, now that the toxic effects of mercury and its compounds are more widely understood.

Mercury in the form of one of its common ores, cinnabar, remains an important component of Chinese, Tibetan, and Ayurvedic medicine. As problems may arise when these medicines are exported to countries that prohibit the use of mercury in medicines, in recent times, less toxic substitutes have been devised.

Mercury exposure at high levels can harm the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs, and immune system of people of all ages.

About Cosmic Healing      

 

  Q. "I do not believe in cosmic healing, or channeling of energy at all. Do you have any proof that this is real?"
When you realize that everything has electromagnetic fields and everything in universe is simple ENERGY, cosmic healing should be an obvious thing.

Q. "Do you have to be open to cosmic healing in order to benefit from it?"
It surely helps when people are open to the energy, but the healing process will start in skeptical people as well.

Q. "How does it work?"
We merely channel energy and passes it on to the client’s body. The energy is very powerful and intelligent. The energy will go to the aura first (aura healing), and then going through the chakra’s to the physical body. There it will not treat symptoms, but directly affects the cause of health issues (which is the concept of cosmic healing). It takes away all and any blockades in the energy system (like it is done with acupuncture) and starts to affect smaller issues like stress and pain.

Q. "Where does this energy come from?"
The energy comes directly from the source (the universe). We only channelise it. We have no control over the destination of the energy or the quantity, but merely is a medium for it. All we can say for sure is that the energy is a positive energy that has a healing capacity.

Q. "Can I be healed in one session?"
It really depends on the nature of the problem and your openness to receiving the cosmic energy. A tumor that has been growing inside the body for a long time cannot be removed in an hour. A peptic ulcer that has been giving problems for 30 years will also not be cured in an hour. However, there are lots of smaller ailments that will be cured in a single session, like stress or small infections.
It can happen that a client feels that the pain is coming and going for a while, or that it temporarily gets worse before it is healed. It can also happen that the pain and stress are gone after one session, but the cause of the problem has not been healed yet. It might then feel like all is alright, but you do need more sessions.
This is different for each case and we will give personal advice on this.    

 

 

 

 

 

 

About Shaligram

 

 

 

 

  Shree Shaligram is a sacred stone found in Gandaki river found in the Muktinath area of Nepal . This stone is worshipped as the aniconic representation Lord Vishnu , just as Lingam is worshipped as  aniconic Lord Shiva. The marks on the Shaligram are natural with the pattern often representing that of Sudarshan Chakra, the Discus of Lord Vishnu.    The worship of these stones is widespread and dates back to a distant past. They are worshipped in temples, monasteries and households all over the country, as visible and natural emblems of Vishnu. The sipping of water in which these stones are bathed is a daily ritual for the pious Hindu belonging to the old and traditional families.

Salagrama is an iconic in character. However in comparison,  the linga may be a natural object like the bana-linga found in the river Narmada, or carved  by man in stone, gems or clay or any material.  But Salagramas are always only those which are naturally found in the river Gandaki; they are never made by man. 

It is interesting to that the great Samkara (632-664 A.D.) mentions in his Vedanata-sutra-bhashya the worship of no other god other than that of Vishnu, and that too in his Salagrama aspect (1,2,7 ‘yatha salagrama harih’; 1,2,14 ‘salagrama iva vishnoh’; 1,3,14 ‘yatha salagrame vishnuh sannihitah, tadvat’), and not in iconic forms. There is a wide-spread belief that the aniconic salagrama must necessarily accompany the iconic representations; and the worship offered to the salagrama takes precedence in the worship offered at home or in temples. It is a fact that in the Vishnu  shrines, salagramas are invariably placed in close contact with the ‘mula-murti’, which worship is offered. Even in the celebrated temple of Vengadam (Tirupati-Tirumalai), the group of salagramas always kept at the feet of the main deity in the sanctum partakes of the principal worship daily; administrating a ceremonial bath to the salagramas is an important detail.

Salagramas do not require preliminary rituals of purification and consecration. They naturally contain the vibhuti of the Godhead, and may be worshipped straight away.

In the worship of Salagrama, no initiation is required; there is no special hymnology or specific procedure of worship, nor any need for a qualified priest or master of ceremonies. Worshipped anyhow, it will bestowal the benefits; and there is no error of any kind.

If, however, it is formally worshipped with all the details scrupulously observed, the benefits procured are boundless.

The pentad form of domestic worship, known as panchayatana-puja, is the popular usage in country since about the eight century A.D., it involves worship of five major deities (Vishnu, Siva, Devi, Surya and Ganesha) on a common platform. The deities are more usually represented by characteristic emblems: salagrama for Vishnu, bana- for Siva, metallic ore (dhatupatra or yantra) for Devi, crystal (sphatika) for Surya and red-stone (sona-sila) for Ganesha. The five deities of the group are arranged according to the sectarian preference. The Vaishnavas place salagrama in the centre and the other four deity-emblems in the four corners; the Saivas place the bana-linga in the centre, and the other objects in the corners; and so on.

The five sacred objects are placed on a metallic plate, on which the tulasi leaves and the bilva-leaves are also offered, and the worship is conducted to all the five deities. It is usual to offer the sixteen sequences of worship (shodasopachara), reciting a verse from ‘Purusha - sukta’ for each sequence. The Shaktas, however, prefer to worship five water – vessels (kalasas) in which the deities are invoked, instead of the aniconic emblems mentioned above.

The five deities in ‘panchopasana’ are also regarded as symbolizing basic ingredient elements of the universe: Vishnu-akasa, Siva-earth, Devi-fire, Surya-air and Ganapati-water. These elements are also constituents of human body, and the personality of an individual is predominantly one of these five elements, although all the elements are necessarily involved. The worship of one of the five deities, according it the central position is indicated for the devotee in whom the corresponding element is prominent.

Salagrama stones are obtained only from the river Gandaki, which is a Himalayan stream, celebrated since antiquity as Narayani, Salagrami, Hiranvati and Hiranyavati. The epic Mahabharata speaks of its sanctity (Bhishma-parva): it contains in itself the waters of all the holy-rivers (Vana-parvan, 84, 113), and it is the abode of Agni, the fire-god (ibid.). Krishna, Arjuna and Bhima are said to have crossed this river on their way from India-prastha to Girivraja (Sabha-parva, 20, 27). The puranas also describe it as a sacred stream in which all the gods and titans abide (‘punyodaka surasura-nishevita’). By merely looking at it, one would eliminate all his mental defilement’s, by touching it his bodily sins are burnt up, and by sipping its water the verbal demerits are thrown out.

One who comes into contact with this sacred stream will be liberated from the cycle of birth and deaths, even if he be a sinner.

For the very stones found in this river, marked with discus, are verily the glorious gods themselves.

The Salagramas are specifically described as fossil-stones which have taken shape in the Gandaki-river, and as characterized by the presence of discus marks (‘gandakyudbhava-vajra-kita-krta-chakra-samayukta-sila). The legend tells us that Gandaki, the lady-devotee, performed penances for long years, and that she got a boon from Vishnu, which made Vishnu reside in her womb (in her depths) as her own offspring; the Salagrama-stones are thus the forms of Vishnu. The presence of divinity in the Salagrama is for the welfare of the devotees.

And for the reason, the river Gandaki became among all the rivers extraordinarily sacred (‘mat-sannidhyan nadiman tvan ati srestha bhavishyasi’). Being a mystic river, looking at it, touching it, bathing in it and sipping its waters will be conductive to eliminate all sins, even the greatest of sins pertaining to the body, speech and mind.

In the ancient texts, the river Gandaki is located in the south of the Himalayas, ten yojanas distant; and an area in the river is regarded as the holy Chakra-tirtha.

It is in this part of the river that Salagramas are found. In Varaha-purana (Reva-khanda), a mountain called Salagramagiri) is said to be responsible for the salagrama stones (‘salagramotpadaka – parvata). If this mountain represents Vishnu, there is said to be another mountain close to it (called Somesvara-giri), which provides sacred stones (called siva-nabha-sila) representing Siva.

Salagrama is actually the name of the village on the banks of the river Gandaki, where the holy stones are picked up. The name is derived from the hut (sala) of the sage Salankayana, who beheld the form of Vishnu in a tree outside his hut (cf. Varaha-purana). This hut was on the banks of the Gandaki, and it was in that particular spot that these sacred stones were found in abundance. The stones were therefore called Salagrama.

Shala (or Sala) also means the hardwood tree known to botanists as Shorea robusta or Valica robusta (Sarja), grown in Nepal (known there as Sukhava). It is said that the cluster of these trees in the otherwise barren stretch of the Himalayan foothills called Mukti-sthana, was responsible for the village close to this cluster, being known as Sala-grama. On the banks of the river Kali-Gandaki, the sacred stones were also found in abundance.

The river Gandaki is a very ancient river; and the geologists say that it existed even before the formation of the Himalayan ranges. It rises beyond the Himalayan ranges, probably in Tibet, and flows (in the north-south direction) into Nepal, which is the southern  valley of the Himalayas, and India. The situation of the birth of the river is given as North 27 27 and East 83 56’; it courses in the south-western direction, and joins Ganga in a place called Bhavatyapur in Bihar. It is an important tributary of the river Ganga. It is called Salagrami or Narayani in Uttar-pradesh. It was known to the Greek geographers as Kondochetts.

It has abundant water throughout the year, as the rain in the rainy season and melted snow in summer keep it full of water. It courses for about one hundred and ninety miles, making itself useful throughout, especially in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar in India. It rises on a high peak, and flows down in swift torrents. The area inundated by the rivers in this part of the country has four important rivers: Kosi in the East, Gandaki in the middle, Karanali to the west, and Mahakali in the far-west. Trisula-ganga is its tributary in India; the river Gandaki joins Ganga near Patna (near Sonapur) in Bihar, having coursed through Champaran to Mujafharpur district. 
  

There is a lake at the source of the Kali-Gandaki (Krishna-g), called Damodar-kunda, connected in legend with the sage Salankayana, on the Nepal – India border. The lower Gandaki is well known as Mukti-natha-kshetra, also called Salagrama-kshetra. The sacred stones are largely found on the banks of Kali-gandaki near Tukche, between the two mountains Dhavala-giri and Annapurana. Damodara-Kunda is a Saivite place of pilgrimage (Somesvara-kshetra): it was a custom for the rulers (Ranas) of Nepal to visit the shrine during Siva-ratri to receive the salagrama-stones specially selected and picked up from the Gandaki-river.

The spots where salagrama-stones are found within the Nepal territory. Actually there are four spots in the river within Nepal jurisdiction, where the sacred stones are picked up. Until recent times, the spots were leased out to private enterprises, and the palace of the Maharaja reserved the right to appropriate what it considered as the most precious and valuable stones; other stones were given over to the lease-holders.

An even number of salagrama stones must be worshipped, but they must not be only two; an odd number of them is never worshipped, but one only is regarded best.

If a person worships daily twelve salagrama-stones with devotion, his merits will increase, and sins will be destroyed.

It must always be presented freely by a teacher or well-wisher with the words “peace, may it be good to you”; it should be received with reverence in the cupped hands and placed on ones own head, as a mark of acceptance.

Even as the fire lies latent in wood, and bursts out when ignited, Vishnu pervades the salagrama-stones and appears when the stone is worshipped.

A salagrama-stone continues to be worthy of worship even when it is broken. Split or cracked, it does not lose its auspicious nature. Only the mark of the discus must be present in the stone.

A salagrama-stone damaged in any way will not become unfit for worship; it is not always sacred and worthy; nothing can be a deterrent for its worship.

 

 

 

 

 

Acharya Nagarjuna

 

 

 

 

Nagarjuna was born in AD 78  and later on became the guru of the Satavahana kings. His origins were in Mahakosal and as a young boy Nagarjuna studied the Vedas and Vedangas. From there he traveled to Patliputra to worship Goddess Saraswati. At 18 he became a Buddhist and began an in-depth study of Ayurveda and Buddhist Philosophy.

During the time of Nagarjuna, Buddhism had seen many changes and Nagarjuna did not entirely agree with the Buddhist philosophy. He founded ‘Shunyavad’, the cult of nothingness. He had not entirely forsaken the Vedic teachings, and his ‘Shunyavad’ shares many similarities with Kashmir Shaivism. He is also the founder of the Madhyamik School of Buddhism. Two of his works are well-known: Mul Madhyamika Karika and Vigraha Vyavar Vartika. His work, Suhrilekha (letters to the King), is addressed to the Satavahana king, Yashshri (AD 173-230). He also studied the Mahayana creed in great detail and later propagated it in north India. His views of Hindu and Buddhist philosophy on existentialism have comparable perspectives to the modern views of Heideggar and Sartre.

Tibetan sources too give indication of Nagarjuna’s medical works. He was a Siddha, a Sorcerer, and a powerful alchemist. His close proximity to South India is worth noting. His laboratory was on Shree Parvat, i.e., Srisailam (where the famous Shiva Temple (Jyotirling) Mallikarjuna is located) in Andhra Pradesh.

At Srisailam, he experimented on metals, especially on mercury (parad). (The other name for parad is darad and the place was called Dardistan.) Here the chemist distinguished between metals and sub-metals, and also between solvents and solubles. He found that mercury could dissolve all metals and Nagarjuna was given the appellation Rasraj.

Ayurvedic medicine prior to Nagarjuna comprised preparations largely from vegetable sources. Nagarjuna founded Ras Chikitsa or Rasayan which was vehemently opposed by orthodox vaidyas. Rasvaidyas however argued that the advantage of rasa is the small dose that is required, and the quick action, which protected the patient from imbibing foul tasting decoctions. They also argued that vegetable-based medicine becomes stale in the course of time while medicines comprising chemicals improve and become more potent. Nagarjuna invented the processes of "distillation" and "calcinations". According to Vrinda and Chakradutta he also discovered Kajjavali, the black sulphide of antimony. They were able to convert most metals into ashes and use them as powerful medicines. Makaradhwaj or Chandrodaya is a mercury compound that can work wonders with patients close to death. Like modern chemotherapy, rasa medicine is excellent but can sometimes be harmful. The preparation of ashes (bhasma) is a tedious chemical process that entails a thousand calcinations (sahasraputi). We still do not know how these processes impart special qualities to known chemical compounds.

Nagarjuna had a command over iron and mercury. The treatise on iron (Lauha Shastra) existed in ancient times and Dhanvantari and Agnivesh refer to it. Kashyap and Dhanvantari experimented on the transformation of iron into gold but were unsuccessful. Patanjali also refers to a Lauha Shastra, yet it is undeniable that the Lauha Shastra of Nagarjuna is excellent.

Nagarjuna was the first to use mercury and Kharpar (antimony?) as medicine, making them insoluble (agnisah). He found five types of mercury : The examples red and grey (slake) were good; yellow, white or multi colored (peacock color) had bad qualities and needed at least 18 treatments (sanskar) before they could be used. Regarding mercury, quicksilver, a vast amount of literature (post-Nagarjuna) is available. The Siddha sect (neither Buddhist nor Vedic) held that parad is Shiva, Mica is Parvati, gandhak is the raja of Parvati, and many fanciful theories were formulated. Mercury becomes solid and a Shiva linga can be made out of it. They worshipped a parad Shiva linga, called it Raseshwar, and started Raseshwarvad.

Few Ayurvedic alchemists have made a mercury linga even in modern times. Other sects like Pashupati, Shaiva, Pratbhingya, and Vedics were attracted to the science of mercury. Buddhism had sects like Vajrayan (vajra is iron), Lingayan, or Sahajayan, and Mantrayan. They believed that the knowledge of Mantra and Tantra must be kept a secret, but Gorakhnath discussed them and his chief disciple believed this secrecy was merely for show.

Vagbhatta lists the names of 27 Rasa Siddha Rasacharyas and Nagarjuna is one of them. Bharvi, the great poet, includes him in the quartet of four great scholars, the other three being Aryadeva, Ashwaghosh, and Kumar Labdh. He also forms part of the list of 84 Siddhas of Vajrayan.

The Arabic word alchemist, the Latin word chemist, and modern chemistry are gifts of Nagarjuna. All these alchemists were in search of the elixir of life (and still are), and of a prescription capable of transforming iron or base metals into gold. Their quest is for a drug that can serve as an antidote for all poisons (theric). Modern science can be said to be indebted to many of these futile pursuits.

Alchemical oils of various metals

 

 

 

 

1) GOLD OIL - THE SUN :

This oil is prepared from the ashes of gold (calcinated gold of 24K) which cannot return to the metallic state. Those ashes are fused into a colorful glass with special alchemical salts elaborated from a phosphoric principle. Those highly fixed salts are then combined naturally with the universal spirit which contains corporified light or astral fire. When exposed several nights to the full moon, this glass dissolves by attraction into an oily thick paste. This oil which is the soul and heavier falls to the bottom; the spirit which is lighter floats on top. So, you have to shake the bottle before use.

This gold oil is excellent for leukemia patients as the highly fixed phosphoric principle will join by the law of affinity with its corresponding human phosphoric principle within the bones. Thus it will establish itself there and do its work of regeneration from within.

Gold is also meant for most heart diseases. It is also excellent for teenagers who have a difficult physical incarnation; several cancers - Rachidian deformation; several ptosis; venous stasis; lipothymiaes and vertigo and also the circulation.

Amethyst

 

 



Amethyst is a variety of quartz that occurs throughout the world either in crystalline or massive form. The associated color ranges from deep purple to pale lavender. Amethyst is a "Stone of Spirituality and Contentment". It facilitates transmutation of lower energies into higher frequencies of both Spiritual and Ethereal levels, representing the principles of complete metamorphosis.

Amethyst balances the energies of the intellectual, emotional and physical bodies, providing a clear connection between the Earth plane and the other worlds. It clears the aura and stabilizes dysfunctional energy within one’s body. Amethyst is also known to bestow stability, strength, invigoration and peace; the peace being the perfect peace present prior to birth.


Also being a "Stone of Meditation", it is excellent in conducting calmness and tranquility to assist one, both in entering and maintaining the state of higher consciousness as it opens and activates the Crown Chakra. Amethyst can also be used for protection against psychic attacks, transmuting malevolent energy to the universe after its transformation into positive and loving energy.

Enhancing the "sense" of common sense, amethyst encourages flexibility in decisions. It also controls temperament by imparting a soothing, calming and tranquilizing influence while clearing away unproductive and negative vibrations. It is also considered in Western Esoteric traditions as one of the stones for prosperity and assist business affairs. This highly auspicious gemstone has been used in the treatment of insomnia and ameliorating pain from headaches and other ailments. It is also useful in stabilizing mental disorders and has been used as an elixir with excellent results in the treatment of arthritis. It can be used as a substitute for Blue Sapphire

Answers to nine questions Rudraksha Mantra in Hindi Hawaii

The nine answers below are organized with a one-line response, followed by a longer answer, then a more detailed explanation. You may be surprised to find how many people are content with the most simple and short answer, so start with that first. You may use the explanation as background information for yourself, or as a contingency response in case you end up in a deeper philosophical discussion.

Question One: Why does Hinduism have so many Gods?

A: While acknowledging many Gods, all Hindus believe in a one Supreme God who creates and sustains the universe.

Longer answer: Hindus believe in one God, one humanity and one world. We believe that there is one Supreme God who created the universe and who is worshiped as Light, Love and Consciousness. People with different languages and cultures have understood the one God in their own distinct way. This is why we are very tolerant of all religions, as each has its own pathway to the one God. One of the unique understandings in Hinduism is that God is not far away, living in a remote heaven, but is inside each and every soul, in the heart and consciousness, waiting to be discovered. This knowing that God is always with us gives us hope and courage. Knowing the One Great God in this intimate and experiential way is the goal of Hindu spirituality.

Explanation: Hinduism is both monotheistic and henotheistic. Hindus were never polytheistic, in the sense that there are many equal Gods. Henotheism better defines the Hindu view of a single Supreme God with many other divinities. We Hindus believe there is one all-pervasive God who energizes the entire universe. We can see Him in the life shining out of the eyes of humans and all creatures. This view of God as existing in and giving life to all things is called "panentheism." It is different from pantheism, which is the belief that God is the natural universe and nothing more. It is also different from strict theism which says God is only above the world, apart and transcendent. Panentheism is a beautiful concept. It says that God is both in the world and beyond it, both immanent and transcendent. That is the Hindu view. Hindus also believe in many devas or Gods who perform various functions, like executives in a large corporation. These should not be confused with God. There is one Supreme God only. What is sometimes confusing to non-Hindus is that Hindus of various sects may call the one God by many different names, according to their regional tradition. Truth for the Hindu has many names, but that does not make for many truths. Hinduism gives us the freedom to approach God in our own way, without demanding conformity to any dogma.

Advice: There is much confusion about this subject, not only among Hindus but among those on the outside looking in. Learn the right terms and the subtle differences in them, and you can explain the profound ways that Hindus look at Divinity. Others will be delighted with the richness of the ancient Indian concepts of God. You may wish to tell inquiring minds that some Hindus believe only in the formless Absolute Reality as God; others believe in God as personal Lord and Creator. This freedom makes the concept of God in Hinduism, the oldest living religion, the richest in all of Earth's existing faiths.

Question Two: Why do Hindus believe in reincarnation?

A: We Hindus believe the soul is immortal and reenters a fleshy body time and time again in order to resolve experiences and learn all the lessons that life in the material world has to offer.

Longer Answer: Carnate means "of flesh." And reincarnate means to "reenter the flesh." Yes, Hindus believe in reincarnation. To us, it explains the natural way the soul evolves from immaturity to spiritual illumination. I myself have had many lives before this one and expect to have more. finally, when I have it all worked out and all the lessons have been learned, I will attain enlightenment and moksha, liberation. This means I will still exist, but will no longer be pulled back to be born in a physical body. Even science is discovering reincarnation. There have been many cases of individuals remembering their past lives. These have been researched by scientists, psychiatrists and parapsychologists during the past decades and documented in very good books and videos.

Explanation: At death the soul leaves the physical body. But the soul does not die. It lives on in a subtle body called the astral body. The astral body exists in the nonphysical dimension called the astral plane. Here we continue to have experiences until we are reborn again in another physical body as a baby. Each reincarnating soul chooses a home and a family which can best fulfill its next step of maturation. After enlightenment we do not have to reexperience the baseness of Earthly existence, but continue to evolve in our inner bodies. Similarly, after we graduate from school we never have to go back to the fifth grade. We have gone beyond that level in understanding. Young children speak of vivid past-life memories, which fade as they grow older, as the veils of individuality shroud the soul's intuitive understanding. Great mystics speak of their past lives as well. Reincarnation is believed in by the Jains and the Sikhs, by the Indians of the Americas, and by the Buddhists, certain Jewish sects, the Pagans and the many indigenous faiths. Even Christianity originally taught reincarnation, but formally renounced it in the twelfth century. It is, in fact, one of the widest held articles of faith on planet Earth.

Question Three: What is karma?

A: Karma is the universal principle of cause and effect, action and reaction which governs all life.

Longer Answer: Karma is one of the natural laws of the mind, just as gravity is a law of matter. It simply means "cause and effect." What happens to us that is apparently unfortunate or unjust is not God punishing us. It is the result of our own past actions. The Vedas, Hinduism's revealed scripture, tell us if we sow goodness, we will reap goodness; if we sow evil, we will reap evil. The divine law is: whatever karma we are experiencing in our life is just what we need at the moment, and nothing can happen but that we have the strength to meet it. Even harsh karma, when faced in wisdom, can be the greatest catalyst for spiritual unfoldment.

Explanation: We cannot give anything away but that it comes back to us. A few years ago in Chennai an American devotee said to me, "Shall I give money to the beggar?" I said, "Give him ten rupees. You may need the fifty rupees when karma pays you back, just as he needs the ten rupees now." The karmic law pays higher interest than any bank when you give freely with no strings attached. Karma is basically energy. I throw energy out through thoughts, words and deeds, and it comes back to me, in time, through other people. We Hindus look at time as a circle, as things cycle around again. Professor Einstein came to the same conclusion. He saw time as a curved thing and space as well. This would eventually make a circle. Karma is a very just law. Karma, like gravity, treats everyone the same. Because we Hindus understand karma, we do not hate or resent people who do us harm. We understand they are giving back the effects of the causes we set in motion at an earlier time. At least we try not to hate them or hold hard feelings. The Hindu law of karma puts man at the center of responsibility for everything he does and everything that is done to him.

Karma is a word we hear quite often on television. "This is my karma," or "It must have been something I did in a past life to bring such good karma to me." In some schools of Hinduism karma is looked upon as something bad. A Hindu guest from Guyana, South America, visited us in Hawaii and mentioned that karma means "sin," and that this is what the Christians in his country are preaching that it means. Some non-Hindus also preach that karma means "fate," which we know is untrue. The idea of inexorable fate, or a preordained destiny over which one has no control, has nothing to do with Sanatana Dharma. Karma actually means "cause and effect."

The process of action and reaction on all levels -- physical, mental and spiritual -- is karma. Here is an example: I have a glass of water in front of me on a table. Because the table is not moving, the water is calm. Shake the table; the water ripples. This is action and reaction, the basic law of nature. Another example: I say kind words to you; you feel peaceful and happy. I say harsh words to you, and you become ruffled and upset. The kindness and the harshness will return to me, through others, at a later time. This is karma. It names the basic law of the motion of energy. An architect thinks creative, productive thoughts while drawing plans for a new building. But were he to think destructive, unproductive thoughts, he would soon not be able to accomplish any kind of positive task even if he desired to do so. This is karma, a natural law of the mind. We must also be very careful about our thoughts, because thought creates, and thoughts make karmas -- good, bad and mixed.

Question Four: Why do Hindus regard the cow as sacred?

A: The cow represents the giving nature of life to every Hindu. Honoring this gentle animal, who gives more than she takes, we honor all creatures.

Longer Answer: Hindus regard all living creatures as sacred -- mammals, fishes, birds and more. To the Hindu, the cow symbolizes all other creatures. The cow represents life and the sustenance of life. It also represents our soul, our obstinate intellect and unruly emotions. But the cow supersedes us because it is so giving, taking nothing but grass and grain. It gives and gives and gives, as does the liberated soul give and give and give. The cow is so vital to life, the virtual sustainer of life for humans. If you lived in a village and had only cows and no other domestic animals or agricultural pursuits, you and your family could survive with the butter, the cream, yogurt, ghee and milk. The cow is a complete ecology, a gentle creature and a symbol of abundance.

Explanation: Who is the greatest giver on planet Earth today? Who do we see on every table in every country of the world -- breakfast, lunch and dinner? It is the cow. The golden arches and their rivals have made fortunes on the humble cow. When we were in Moscow in March, 1990, we learned that McDonald's had opened eleven of its cow-vending outlets there. The generous cow gives milk and cream, yogurt and cheese, butter and ice cream, ghee and buttermilk. It gives entirely of itself through sirloin, ribs, rump, porterhouse and beef stew. Its bones are the base for soup broths. It gives the world leather belts, leather seats, leather coats and shoes, beef jerky, cowboy hats -- you name it. The cow is the most prominent giving animal in the world today. The only cow-question for Hindus is, "Why don't more people respect and protect this remarkable creature?"

Question five: Are Hindus idol worshipers?

A: No, Hindus are not idle worshipers. They worship with great vigor and devotion!

Longer Answer: Seriously, Hindus are not idol worshipers in the sense implied. We Hindus invoke the presence of God, or the Gods, from the higher, unseen worlds, into stone images so that we can experience His divine presence, commune with Him and receive His blessings. But the stone or metal Deity images are not mere symbols of the Gods. They are the form through which their love, power and blessings flood forth into this world. We may liken this mystery to our ability to communicate with others through the telephone. We do not talk to the telephone; rather we use it as a means of communication with another person. Without the telephone, we could not converse across long distances; and without the sanctified icon in the temple we cannot easily commune with the Deity. Divinity can also be invoked and felt in a sacred fire, or in a tree, or in the enlightened person of a satguru. In our temples, God is invoked in the sanctum by highly trained priests. Through the practice of yoga, or meditation, we invoke God inside ourself. Yoga means to yoke oneself to God within. The image or icon of worship is a focus for our prayers and devotions. Another way to explain icon worship is to acknowledge that Hindus believe God is everywhere, in all things, whether stone, wood, creatures or people. So, it is not surprising that they feel comfortable worshiping the divine in His material manifestation. The Hindu can see God in stone and water, air and ether, and inside his own soul.

Explanation: Humorously speaking, Hindus are not idle worshipers. I have never seen a Hindu worship in a lazy or idle way. They worship with great vigor and devotion, with unstinting regularity and constancy. There's nothing idle about our ways of worship! (A little humor never hurts.) But, of course, the question is about "graven images." All religions have their symbols of holiness through which the sacred flows into the mundane. To name a few: the Christian cross, or statues of Mother Mary and Saint Theresa, the holy Kaaba in Mecca, the Sikh Adi Granth enshrined in the Golden Temple in Amritsar, the Arc and Torah of the Jews, the image of a meditating Buddha, the totems of indigenous and Pagan faiths, and the artifacts of the many holy men and women of all religions. Such icons, or graven images, are held in awe by the followers of the respective faiths. The tooth of the Buddha in Sri Lanka's town of Kandy is another loved and respected image. The question is, does this make all such religionists idol-worshipers? The answer is, yes and no. From our perspective, idol worship is an intelligent, mystical practice shared by all of the world's great faiths.

The human mind releases itself from suffering through the use of forms and symbols that awaken reverence, evoke sanctity and spiritual wisdom. Even a fundamentalist Christian who rejects all forms of idol worship, including those of the Catholic and Episcopal churches, would resent someone who showed disrespect for his Bible. This is because he considers it sacred. In Hinduism one of the ultimate attainments is when the seeker transcends the need of all form and symbol. This is the yogi's goal. In this way Hinduism is the least idol-oriented of all the religions of the world. There is no religion that is more aware of the transcendent, timeless, formless, causeless Truth. Nor is there any religion which uses more symbols to represent Truth in preparation for that realization.

Question Six: Are Hindus forbidden to eat meat?

A: Hindus teach vegetarianism as a way to live with minimum of hurt to other beings. But in today's world not all Hindus are vegetarian.

Longer Answer: Vegetarians are more numerous in the South of India than in the North. This is because of the North's cooler climactic conditions and past Islamic influence. Our religion does not lay down rigid "do's and don'ts." There are no commandments. Hinduism gives us the wisdom to make up our own mind on what we put in our body, for it is the only one we have -- in this life, at least. Priests and religious leaders are definitely vegetarian, so as to maintain a high level of purity and spiritual consciousness to fulfill their responsibilities, and to awaken the more refined areas of their nature. Soldiers and law-enforcement officers are generally not vegetarians, because they have to keep alive their aggressive forces in order to perform their work. To practice yoga and be successful in meditation, it is mandatory to be vegetarian. It is a matter of wisdom -- the application of knowledge at any given moment. Today, about twenty or thirty percent of all Hindus are vegetarians.

Explanation: This can be a very touchy subject. When you are asked this question, there are several ways that you can go, depending on who is asking and the background in which they were raised. But there is an overlying principle which gives the Hindu answer to this query. It is called ahimsa, refraining from injuring, physically, mentally or emotionally, anyone or any living creature. The Hindu who wishes to strictly follow the path of noninjury to all creatures naturally adopts a vegetarian diet. It's really a matter of conscience more than anything else.

When we eat meat, fish, fowl and eggs, we absorb the vibration of the instinctive creatures into our nerve system. This chemically alters our consciousness and amplifies our lower nature, which is prone to fear, anger, jealousy, confusion, resentment and the like. Many Hindu swamis advise followers to be well-established vegetarians prior to initiation into mantra, and then to remain vegetarian thereafter. But most do not insist upon vegetarianism for those not seeking initiation. Swamis have learned that families who are vegetarian have fewer problems than those who are not.

There are many scriptural citations that counsel not eating meat, such as in the Vedas, Tirukural and Manu Dharma Shastras. For guidance in this and all matters, Hindus also rely on their own guru, community elders, their own conscience and their knowledge of the benefits of abstaining from meat and enjoying a wholesome vegetarian diet. Of course, there are good Hindus who eat meat, and there are not-so-good Hindus who are vegetarians.

Today in America and Europe there are millions of people who are vegetarians simply because they want to live a long time and be healthy. Many feel a moral obligation to shun the mentality of violence to which meat-eating gives rise. There are some good books on vegetarianism, such as Diet for a New America by John Robbins. There is also a fine magazine dedicated to the subject, called Vegetarian Times.

Question Seven: Do Hindus have a Bible?

A: Our "Bible" is called the Veda. The Veda is comprised of four ancient and holy scriptures which all Hindus revere.

Longer Answer: Like the Taoist Tao te Ching, the Buddhist Dhammapada, the Sikh Adi Granth, the Jewish Torah, the Christian Bible and the Muslim Koran -- the Veda is the Hindu holy book. The Veda is the ultimate scriptural authority for Hindus. Its words and wisdom permeate Hindu thought, ritual and meditation. They open a rare window into ancient Indian society, proclaiming life's sacredness and the way to oneness with God.

Explanation: For untold centuries unto today, the Veda has remained the sustaining force and authoritative doctrine, guiding followers in ways of worship, duty and enlightenment. The Veda is the meditative and philosophical focus for millions of monks and a billion seekers. Its stanzas are chanted from memory by priests and laymen daily as liturgy in temple worship and domestic ritual. All Hindus wholeheartedly accept the Veda, yet each draws selectively, interprets freely and amplifies abundantly. Over time, this tolerant allegiance has woven the varied tapestry of Indian Hindu Dharma. Today, the Veda is published in Sanskrit, English, French, German and other languages. But it is the metaphysical and popular Upanishads, the fourth section of the Veda, which have been most amply and ably translated.

Question Eight: Why do many Hindus wear a dot near the middle of their forehead?

A: The dot worn on the forehead is a religious symbol. It is also a beauty mark.

Longer Answer: The dot worn on the forehead is a sign that one is a Hindu. It is called the bindi in the Hindi language, bindu in Sanskrit and pottu in Tamil. In olden days, all Hindu men and women wore these marks, and they both also wore earrings. Today it is the women who are most faithful in wearing the bindi. The dot has a mystical meaning. It represents the third eye of spiritual sight, which sees things the physical eyes cannot see. Hindus seek to awaken their inner sight through yoga. The forehead dot is a reminder to use and this spiritual vision to perceive and better understand life's inner workings, to see things not just physically, but with the "mind's eye" as well. There are many types of forehead marks, or tilaka, in addition to the simple dot. Each mark represents a particular sect or denomination of our vast religion. We have four major sects: Saivism, Vaishnavism, Shaktism and Smartism. Vaishnava Hindus, for example, wear a v-shaped tilaka made of clay. Elaborate tilakas are worn by Hindus mainly at religious events, though many wear the simple bindi, indicating they are Hindu, even in the general public. By these marks we know what a person believes, and therefore know how to begin conversations.

For Hindu women, the forehead dot is also a beauty mark, not unlike the black mark European and American women once wore on the cheek. The red bindi is generally a sign of marriage. A black bindi is often worn before marriage to ward off the evil eye. As an exotic fashion statement, the dot's color complements the color of a lady's sari. Ornate bindis are worn by actresses in popular American TV shows.

Explanation: Men and women of a particular faith wishing to identify themselves to one another often do so by wearing distinctive religious symbols. Often these are blessed in their temples, churches or synagogues. In some countries Muslim girls cover their face with a veil. Christians wear a cross on a necklace. Jewish boys wear small leather cases that hold scriptural passages, and the round cap called yalmuka.

Do not be ashamed to wear the bindi on your forehead in the United States, Canada, Europe or any country of the world. It will distinguish you from all other people as a very special person, a Hindu, a knower of eternal truths. You will never be mistaken as belonging to another nationality or religion. For both boys and girls, men and women, the dot can be small or large depending on the circumstance, but should always be there in appropriate circumstances. Naturally, we don't want to flaunt our religion in the face of others. We observe that Christian boys and girls take off or conceal their crosses in the corporate business world. Recently a Canadian TV documentary distinguished the bindi by calling it a "Cool Dot." Times are changing, and to proudly wear the symbols that distinguish and define us is totally cool.

Question Nine: Are the Gods of Hinduism really married?

A: To the more uneducated people who are not able to understand high philosophy, Hinduism is taught in story form. Those of the higher philosophy know that each God is complete within Himself, neither male nor female.

Longer Answer: Hinduism is taught on many different levels to many different people, and to the more uneducated people who are not able to understand the high philosophy, Hinduism is taught in story form. These stories, called Puranas, are the basis of dance, plays, storytelling around the fire in the homes to children as they are growing up to amplify how they should live. Because the temple is the center of every Hindu community, and everyone is focused on the temple and the Gods within the temple, the Gods are the major players in these stories. Hindus who understand the higher philosophy seek to find God on the inside while also worshiping God in the temples. Simple folk strive to be like a God, or like a Goddess. The stories illustrate how a family should live, how they should raise their children, and much, much more.

Explanation: Those who are privileged to the higher philosophies know that Gods are neither male nor female, which is the yoga of ida and pingala blending into sushumna within each individual. They know that Gods do not marry, that they are complete within themselves. This unity is depicted by Ardhanarishvara, Siva as half man and half woman and in the teaching that Siva and Shakti are one, that Shakti is Siva's energy. Hindus are very peaceful people, they believe in ahimsa, not hurting physically, mentally or emotionally, but in times of war, the stories become violent, stimulating young men to get out and fight, showing how the Gods killed the demons, and how battles were won. Before the printing press, there were few books and these were owned only by a few families. Hinduism was conveyed through stories and parables. Therefore, Hindus are a visual community, holding pictures in their mind on how they should behave in peacetime, how they should behave in wartime. Some modern swamis now urge devotees not to pay any attention to the Puranic stories, saying that they have no relationship with the world today -- that they are misleading and confusing. Instead, they encourage followers to deepen themselves with the higher philosophies of the Vedic Upanishads and the realizations of Hindu seers.

Anukul Pratikul Planetary Gem Choosing Philosophies

The Planetary Gemology World is divided into two (2) opposing philosophies, viz., Anukul-vad v/s Pratikul-vad:

ANUKULA-VAD: A gem will act "SAME" as it's planet - So gems should be chosen for Anukul (favorable) grahas - AKA known as GOODISM

PRATIKUL-VAD: A gem will act "OPPOSITE" of it's planet - So gems should be chosen for Pratikul (unfavorable) grahas - AKA known as BADISM

Pratikul Planet's gem choosing method for overcoming a weak or evil planet, based on the misconception that a 'pratikul' (inauspicious) planet is strengthened by wearing it's gem and there by it changes from being inauspicious (pratikul) to become auspicious (anukul).

ILLOGIC: By providing the gem for a malefic planet, benefic results will follow.

Example: A person has Jupiter debilitated and a malefic which is inauspicious or pratikul, but by wearing Jupiter's gem, yellow sapphire or another yellow Jupiter jewel, it is believed that the 'weak' (troublesome) Jupiter gets strengthened and REVERSES to become auspicious. Some persons opine that a harmful planet means that the planet's "cosmic color" is weak. The gems for the planets are concentrated essential cosmic color rays; so by wearing the gem for the weak, Pratikul (harmful) color that weak color is strengthened, and when the weak color is stronger then the harmful influence will be REVERSED, removed or mitigated. Pratikul means a planet that causes evil influence or suffering to the native as seen through the horoscope. This may be a debilitated planet who is in a dusthana and enemy of the lord of the lagna, or otherwise disposed that the influence simply causes suffering.

Anukul Planet's gem choosing method for resorting to or harnessing one's auspicious (Anukul) planet(s) (exalted, mulatrikona, own sign, benefic, great friend, good house, owner of good house, etc.) based on the concept that lucky planet = lucky gem! In all Jyotish there are basically two broad catagories of planetary position, viz., favorable (to the chart) (Anukul) OR unfavorable (to the chart). One should avoid their weakness and cultivate their strengths. "Ratna-anukul" means the auspicious gem of strongest most desirable planet.

Example: One has Leo Lagna - their lagna lord is Sun, who is exalted (100% strength) and posited in the 9th house which is all very auspicious. That person would be advised to use a fine ruby, the Sun's gem, to attract or harness his auspicious influence. On the other hand if a person had Saturn debilitated (0% strength) and in the 8th house they would be advised to avoid Saturn's gem blue sapphire and all other Saturnine things or activities. And better still they could donate a blue sapphire to pacify Shanideva. The followers of Anukul-vad believe that the pratikul-graha color is the unlucky color, and to magnify that bad color will simply increase the problems caused by that unlucky Planet.

Both methods believe that gems increase cosmic colors of their planets, thus for an Anukuli it is considered to be suicide to increase a pratikul-graha's color. In Anukul there is never a case where a Pratikul (harmful to the chart/native) planet's gem should be worn as it will surely increase the ill fortune; but such gems for a Pratikul planet can be used by DONATING them - giving them AWAY - according to Shastric directions. A pure anukuli believes that a pratikul-gem is NEVER good to use; it is increasing the cosmic poison, and ill fortune (a person's bad cosmic vibes) should NEVER be increased. Anukul means a planet that is beneficially disposed either by being strong in own sign, good house, ruler of houses which will bring positive results, or otherwise not ill disposed nor inclined to produce evil influence. A planet which is good for the chart either naturally or by house ruler ship yet somewhat weakened by placement may be strengthened through the gem, or a planet which already is strong and giving benefic influence may be further strengthened for gains in particular areas of life by wearing the gem.

Ascension

 

You are changing into an awareness of being an energetic being. Not just a physical being! People are feeling the energy, and are beginning to believe in the possibility that anything is possible. And, remember, when you apply the Divine Laws of Creation with your will to create your future potential, you are affecting the matter around you at the frequency level!

Vibration is the true form of all life. As you begin to expand your awareness of being in the new energies, you will feel your aura more and more. You will become, slowly, tuned in to your right brain, which in turn connects you to your aura the way that your left brain is connected to your awareness of body. Science and Spirituality, Physics and Metaphysics, right brain and left brain, all must cleanse, rebalance and retune to work together. For your personal path to ascension, it is necessary to make this crucial healing step of total assimilation. Your duality springs from the Veil Of Forgetfulness, which blinds you to your spiritual connection to God . Now that the Veil is thinning, with more and more Divine Light shining on the planet, your slumbering connection to Spirit will reawaken as you return to full awareness of your entire Be-ing, healing all of your layers and integrating them. What does this do? It returns you to Wholeness by awakening your conscious awareness of the Divine Flame that animates your body.

In reconnecting to your auric awareness, you become consciously reconnected to God. God is a vibration in your bodies, a frequency that you have missed for a long, long time. We say to you here, it is coming back!

These wondrous emotions cannot enter your body if there is too much energetic blockage in the area of chakras. Use the healing tools now being channeled in around the planet. Get clear, go through and finish all loose ends. If you have not cleaned out your closets, attics and basements, do so now - you will be amazed how much better you feel without all that clutter around you!

And the body must be clear and balanced, dear ones, in order for you to be able to make this journey, and survive it. So when we say, you must clear and heal at all levels before you can merge all of your aspects into one higher being.

You must prepare your vehicle in order to get to your destination.

Aura Analysis

 

An aura, according to New Age metaphysics, is a colored outline, or set of contiguous outlines, allegedly emanating from the surface of an object. In the New Age, even the lowly amoeba has an aura, as does the mosquito and every lump of goat dung. The aura supposedly reflects a supernatural energy field or life force that permeates all things. Human auras allegedly emerge from the chakras. Under ordinary circumstances, auras are only visible to certain people with special psychic power. However, with a little bit of training, or with a special set of Aura Goggles with "pinacyanole bromide" filters (available at your local New Age Head Shop), anyone can see auras. You may also use Kirlian photography to capture auras on film. At least that is what New Age spiritualists believe.

Chakra

According to Tantric philosophy and Yoga, a chakra is a points of energy in the astral body. There are seven primary chakras, which are associated with various parts of the body, emotions, desires, thoughts, powers, and health.* New Age gurus think chakras have colors and give rise to auras, which reveal one's spiritual and physical health, as well as one's karma. The alleged energy of the chakras is not scientifically measurable, however, and is at best a metaphysical chimera and at worst an anatomical falsehood.

Astral body

The astral body is one of seven bodies each of us has, according to Madame Blavatsky. The astral body is the seat of feeling and desire and has an aura. How the physical body and the other alleged bodies interact is unknown, but it is said to be by some sort of occult force. The astral body is said to be capable of leaving the other bodies for an out-of-body experience known as astral projection.

Theory of Chakras

Chakra doctrine postulates seven charkas. These are called the Muladhara or "Root Support" at the base of the spine with four "petals", the Swadhishthana or "Own Abode" at the root of the genitals with six, the Manipura or "Fullness of Jewels" at the level of the navel with ten "petals", the Anahata or "Unstruck Melody" at the heart-centre with twelve, the Vishuddha or "Complete Purity" at the throat with sixteen, and finally the Ajna or "Guru's Command" at the brow with two "petals". The Crown centre, the Sahasrara-Padma or "Thousand Petalled-Lotus", located at the very top of the head, is technically speaking not a chakra at all, but the summation of all the chakras.

The chakras are strung along the central or Sushumna channel (usually located at the spine). In the lowest chakra, the Muladhara, at the base of the spine, there lies the kundalini-shakti, the latent consciousness-energy, the microcosm of the cosmic creative shakti. When this is aroused, it can be made to ascend the sushumna, either ac-tivating or dissolving (depending on the yogic tradition) each chakra in turn, until it reaches the highest or crown chakra, the Sahasrara, where dwells the Godhead or Supreme Shiva (Paramashiva). As the Kundalini-Shakti unites with Paramashiva, the original transcendent equilibrium is restored, and the yogi returns to the state of oneness with the Absolute.

The chakras are described as stations or centres of pure consciousness (chaitanya) and consciousness-power. They are focal points of meditation; iconographic structures within the occult or "subtle body". Apart from the Sahasrara, each chakra is described by means of a whole lot of symbolic associations or correspondences. Building upon the initial later Upanishads speculation, each chakra, as well as having a specific position in the physical body, element, mantra, and deity, also has a particular number of "petals", each associated with one of the letters of the Sanskrit alphabet, a corresponding colour, shape, animal, plane of existence, sense-organ, mantric sound, and so on.

As is usually the case with intellectual esoteric systems, a lot of these correspondences are arbitrary, for example, smell and feet with Muladhara, taste and hand with Swadhishthana, sight and anus with Manipura, etc. These associations are all based on the Samkhyan sequence of tattwas and their attributes.

In addition to the seven major chakras arranged along the spine there are also chakras in the hands, feet, genitals, and so on. Also in addition to the seven major chakras, there are also a number of other chakras along the spine which are sometimes referred to. In his exhaustively detailed and definitive work on the chakras according to the traditional Indian understanding, Reference is also made in all Tantric texts to the nadis or channels of vital-force (prana). According to the traditional Tantric teachings, the seven chakras are strung like pearls or jewels along the brilliant thin thread of the sushumna nadi, which is the primary nadi in the body. On either side of the sushumna are the two main secondary nadis: the white moon-like ida on the left, containing descending vitality (apana), and the red sun-like pingala on the right, containing ascending vitality (prana in the narrow sense of the term). The tantric yogi aims to direct the subtle airs from these two primary side channels into the central sushumna nadi, and so activate the latent Kundalini energy. This then ascends through each of the chakras in turn, and when it reaches the top of the head, the yogi attains Liberation.

The understanding of the chakras and kundalini in the West derives largely from Sir John Woodroffe's The Serpent Power, a very technical work, first published in 1919 under the psuedonym Arthur Avalon. The first (and still one of of the only) serious books on the chakras and Kundalini yoga to be published in the West, it is actually a translation of two sixteenth century Bengali texts and their commentaries, together with Woodroffe's own long and detailed introduction. Woodroffe's book - his own chapters cover Shakta metaphysics and cosmology, Patanjali Yoga, and Tantric practice, as well as the chakras themselves - is unfortunately very difficult for the beginner, but it served as the inspiration and chief reference text (usually without acknowledgment) for many Western occult-esoteric writers.

The Subtle Energy Body

Aura, Chakras, and the Rainbow

The Aura

The aura is the energy field which surrounds a physical object. The aura of a human is more complex than that of a rock or animal because of the spirit within humankind, which is made in the image of God. Sensitive people and small children are often able to see the auras and what is in them. Usually there are colors and these colors can change according to the mood of the person and the situation the person is in.

The aura reflects the total person because the spiritual aspect influences the mental/emotional state which impacts our physical reality of which the aura is the outermost part.

Chakra Energy Vortexes

The energy field of the human body has junction boxes in it, like the wiring in a house or the interstate system of roads which connect the United States. These junction boxes are called chakras which means spinning wheel. In the spiritually enlightened person, each chakra is a different color, corresponding to the colors in a rainbow.

This diagram shows a person who has many colors in his/her aura. Although colors in the aura change, sometimes only one or two is predominant. Ideally, all the colors of the rainbow will move in and through a person's aura, showing a balance between the different energy systems and harmony between the different levels of consciousness. This diagram depicts a rainbow warrior, someone who has attuned his or her chakras and is keeping them attuned and cleansed so all the energies are balanced and harmonized.

There are 7 major chakras in our body. Each chakra is associated with an aspect of consciousness. The chakras begin at the base of our spine and then are located upwards, to the top of our head. These are illustrated by the colored circles running up the spine in the diagram. While there are other, lesser, vortices, they are not shown in this picture. In Angelic RayKey, you will learn how to sense the state of these chakras in a person or yourself, what to do to open them, and how to enhance the spin and balance of all energy points, large or small.

The state of a person's health can be detected by Kirilian photography, dowsing, and other methods of measuring and recording the color and spin of the chakras and aura. When the chakras are small, out of alignment (making a crooked line running through them), or out of synchronization with each other, there is an imbalance which will be evident somewhere else for the individual. This may be a physical illness, a mental problem, a relationship which has ended or something of the kind or a combination of any of the above. The Angelic RayKey practitioner assists a person to become like the diagram, balanced, aligned and in a state of perfection.

In the Angelic RayKey classes (coming soon to a cyberspace near you--want to know when?) the aura and chakras are discussed as part of the attunement process. That's because these energy centers are important in our spiritual growth, and they provide insight to our conscious healing process.

Awakening of the Upa Guru

 

 

The purpose of holy rudraksha is awakening of the Upa Guru (self). We have Guru within us as we are all part of the same divine light that created us. Through our Karma, faith, devotion and holy rudraksha, we can awaken ourselves to get self realisation (enlightenment). The Great saints of the past like Sai Baba, Buddha, Meera Bai, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Jesus Christ, Mother Teresa to count among millions were all enlightened by Upa Gurus and not by any Human Guru.

 

Once a person is enlightened he realises that:

 

 

  • He is Brahman the Pure Soul.

 

  • His inner weaknesses of anger, greed, pride and deceit are destroyed.

 

  • He experiences self bliss.

 

  • Doership and worries diminish as he understands who is the real doer.

 

  • He sees his own faults instead of seeing the faults of others. This results in inner peace and harmony in life.

 

  • He is moved to ask for forgiveness for one’s mistakes.

 

  • He realises that one’s soul is absolutely free and pure regardless of the weaknesses of the body-mind-ego complex.

 

  • He strives to unite with the holy light to achieve Moksha which is ultimate bliss.

 

Awakening the Ajna Chakra

 

Ajna, "the third eye," is where, as the Bible notes, "thine eyes become single," where there is no longer a difference between male and female, and where "the peace that passeth all understanding" dwells.

The sixth chakra is called Ajna which in Sanskrit means it is located between the eyebrows and is commonly known as the third eye. Within the symbolic representation of the Ajna center is the syllable Ohm which represents the beginning and end of all things. It is from this center that a person harmonizes the forces within him/herself and achieves a balance between Yin and Yang.

The third eye radiates a deep blue which in the developed personality borders on violet. It functions as the central point where different flows of Prana meet and are distributed. (Sushunma branches through it, and the Ida and Pingala go right through it after they branch off to the nostrils.) The chakra has control over seeing, not only in the physical sense but in the mystical sense of seeing into the higher planes; intuitive seeing, clairvoyance and the other paranormal forms of knowing. And when active, the seat of Divine Intelligence. The Ajna center controls all higher mental activities. This includes intuitive thought, rational thought and memory. Intuitive thought includes all forms of paranormal activity.

When the sixth chakra is active, consciousness and unconsciousness merge and whatever gulf there was beforehand is permanently abolished. Integration becomes complete and a person sees himself as the union of selves, the I AM. A person in this condition remembers and experiences himself at every stage of his life from the cradle upwards, and he remembers all those individual energy fields that combined to create his particular energy field, including those two most important fields "mother and father. Because his remembrance is complete, he can go beyond the point of terror, beyond the moment he first experienced separation from the universal field to a time when there was only union and unconditional love.

In reference literature the 14 Mukhi Rudraksha has been called the Deva Mani and it awakens the sixth sense to foresee future happenings.

Bagalamukhi mata

 

Bagala or Bagalamukhi is the eighth Mahavidya in the famous series of the 10 Mahavidyas. She is identified with the second night of courage and is the power or Shakti of cruelty.

She is described as the Devi with three eyes, wearing yellow clothes and gems, moon as her diadem, wearing champaka blossoms, with one hand holding the tongue of an enemy and with the left hand spiking him, thus should you meditate on the paralyser of the three worlds.

Bagalamukhi means "The Crane-Headed One". This bird is thought of as the essence of deceit. She rules magic for the suppression of an enemy's gossip. These enemies also have an inner meaning, and the peg she puts through the tongue may be construed as a peg or paralysis of our own prattling talk. She rules deceit which is at the heart of most speech. She can in this sense be considered as a terrible or Bhairavi form of Matrika Devi, the mother of all speech. According to Todala Tantra, her male consort is Maharudra.

Seated on the right of Bagala is the Maharudra, with one face, who dissolves the universe.

The Bagalamukhi Mantra as per Mantra Mahodadhi:

"Om Hleem Sarva Dusthaanaam Vaacham Mukham Paadam stambhaya jihvyamkilaya buddhim vinaashaya Hleem Om Swaha"

Benefits of Gem Therapy

 

The proper stone can bestow fantastic benefits. There should also be a strong meditation by the wearer of the results desired before beginning its use. Even in children, where the parents are the ones devoting all the mental energy, we have seen dramatic improvements. The use of pearls with young children has been shown to be effective in helping to calm hyperactivity. It seems to make them think with more clarity.

The practice of indiscriminate placing of gems on the body, especially this new age practice of gem crystals all over the body, is dangerous. Herbs or medicines would not be indiscriminately taken without consultation with a doctor or health practitioner, and the use of gems and crystals should be taken as seriously. Improper use of gemstones can short-circuit magnetic fields of the subtle body and can result in severe physical debility in some cases.

The medical and astrological uses validate each other. Different planets have influence on different parts of our bodies. A weak planet in the chart often manifests physically as a weakness in the part of the body affected by that planet’s cosmic energy. Gems have great power to harmonize planetary influences.

 

 

Bhagya and Karma

 

  It is believed that every moment and happening in our life is predestined, and is the result of karma's of our past life. but what about the karma of our present life, whether these can add something to the future of this life? i thought yesterday while sitting on the terrace of my building and seeing the big red sun set and spreading beautiful colors on the canvas of sky.



The answer immediately come to my mind that yes of course every karma has its fruits whether earlier or later whenever a karma get ripened it will give it's effect and there is no need of another birth. Life is like a canvas, or the better term is the 'time' on which we are painting from time immemorial since past several lives and every stroke of brush of karma has to leave it's effect on it.



If we really want to change our destiny, we can not do it because the past karmas can not be undone. We can add new favorable and auspicious times to our existing life by a real hard work.



Interestingly we have an option of rubber also by which we can remove all the work done on the canvas of time, and no more consequences of the past karma and present karma will come in the future life. That rubber is brahma gyan, after attaining which no karma is left.

Biomedical Properties of Rudraksha

 

 

The beneficial powers of Rudraksha are by virtue of its Electrical and Magnetic Properties.

Electrical Properties -The ability to send out subtle electrical impulses & Inductive vibrations and act as a Dielectric as in a capacitor to store electrical energy.

Our Human body, The Central Nervous System, Autonomous, Sympathetic & Para sympathetic Nervous System and Various other Organ systems in toto can be considered a complex Bio Electronic circuit.

Constant pumping of blood by the heart, blood circulation, the transmission of various impulses -Touch, Noise, Smell, Sight, Taste to the brain and the continuous movement of Neurons and Neurotransmitters in the brain and Nervous system generates electrical impulses. This is termed as Bioelectricity. This flow of Bioelectricity facilitates movement of information from the brain to various parts of the body and back. What we feel, think, hear, taste, see. Perceive all depends on the subtle flow of Bioelectric current. This flow of Bioelectric current is occurs due to the existence of potential differences or the different energy levels between different parts of the body.

As long as the flow of Bioelectricity is smooth the body functions normally and we have the feeling of being in control.

But there is a third element to the Body and Brain Bio Electronic circuit Interface, that of the mind. Any activity that can produce stress or maladjustment can throw the streamlined activity, the Electronic circuit of the Body& Mind out of gear. Human beings and all living beings are prone to stress continuously in the continuous fight for survival and prosperity.

In modern age with intense competition the Stress levels have increased tremendously. Almost every individual has problems of Stress and Stress related ailments like insomnia, alcoholism, depression, Maladjustments, heart diseases, skin diseases etc. Any Doctor will confirm that almost 95% of the ailments are Psychosomatic or Stress related (i.e.) originating from Mind. When there is Stress or Maladjustment corresponding Stress signals are sent to the Central Nervous systems, there is an increased activity or abnormal of Neurons and Neuro transmitters. The magnitude of change will depend on the cause and specific case. When such a thing occurs and it occurs continuously, streamlined flow of electrical signals throughout the Mind-Body interface is disrupted and it makes us feel uncomfortable and we are not able to act with our full efficiency. Our Blood circulation becomes Non-ideal and we feel various illnesses. Unfortunately this happens all the time.

Rudraksha beads act as a Stabilizing Anchor. Rudraksha beads' electrical property can be broadly categorized into

1) Resistance- There is continuous and subtle flow of bioelectrical signal throughout the body due to potential difference between parts of the Body. Rudraksha beads of particular Mukhis or Facets have a definitive Factor of Resistance. It is measured in Ohms. When these beads resist the flow of bioelectrical impulses a specific ampere of current flow is generated depending on the factor of resistance. This acts in tandem with heartbeat, streamlining it and sending out specific impulses to brain. These impulses stimulate certain positive brain chemicals. Making us feel better, more confidants, poised and more energetic. It has been observed that specific Mukhis or Facets of Rudraksha beads send out specific signals acting on a particular brain chemical and thereby by effecting specific positive changes in personality. It is well proven that the state of mind and our personality is governed almost completely by the Brain, it’s functioning and that of Central Nervous System

2) Capacitance or the Dielectric Properties -Rudraksha beads act as dielectric (i.e.) as a storage of electrical energy. This property of Rudraksha makes it capable in stabilizing and anchoring the Bioelectric current. The values are measured in units of Farad. This property is very helpful in controlling hyperactivity, palpitations of heart, streamlining heartbeat etc. Due to stress when there is increased physical activity heart beats faster and the overall activity of hormones and nervous system increases. This causes increased energy levels or increase in potential difference. As a result of this the magnitude of the Bioelectric Current increases. Rudraksha beads acting as Dielectric store this excess Bioelectric Energy , thereby streamlining the overall activity to Normalcy.

3) Inductance -Rudraksha beads by it have permanent magnetic properties. They have been observed to send out Inductive vibrations with frequencies measured in units of Henry (Volt Seconds/Ampere). This perhaps is the reason why people have felt better even when Rudraksha beads does not touch them physically.

Magnetic Properties -Rudraksha beads have Both Paramagnetic and Diamagnetic with the most important property of Dynamic Polarity We all are most probably aware of the beneficial healing properties of magnets. Magnetic Healing is becoming extremely popular off late and everyone who have been using magnets for healing have been getting the benefits and found overall betterment and rejuvenation. Rudraksha beads retain most of the properties of Magnets but it is unparallel in one aspect, that of the ability to change it's polarity or the Property of Dynamic Polarity. The basic way of healing is based on the fact that the when the passage of arteries and veins which carry blood to and from Heart to all the parts of the body is blocked or reduced due to variety of reasons, various illnesses creep. Blood carries oxygen and energy to various parts of the body and cleanses it off waste materials. Any disruption of the smooth flow of Blood circulation is bound to cause illnesses.

We experience pain and uneasiness due to improper blood circulation. Every cell in the blood as well as the Arteries and veins are charged either positively or negatively. Magnets have the poles Positive (+) and Negative (-).

When magnets are passed on various parts of the body the opposite poles of the magnets and that of cells get attracted and there is an expansion of the passage .The Arteries and veins open up to facilitate streamlined blood circulation. When there is a streamlining of blood circulation most of the illnesses get automatically healed and we feel better and rejuvenated.

But with magnets the polarity is fixed. When magnets are brought near a particular part of the body it opens up only those sections of veins and arteries where there is a matching of polarities hence complete healing and streamlining of blood circulation cannot be ensured. We experience healing and feel better but we can still go much further with Dynamic Polarity of Rudraksha beads.

Rudraksha has the ability to Change it's polarity-The property of Dynamic Polarity. This in turn is by virtue of its property, Diamagnetism. Diamagnetism is termed as the ability of any material to acquire temporary magnetic property in presence of an external magnetic field. The polarity of the charge induced is opposite to that of the external field inducing the charge. Blood circulation and heart beat automatically induces a magnetic field around the body and particularly the heart Region.Bioelectricty automatically gives raise to Biomagnetism Depending on the polarity of the Induced magnetic field. Rudraksha bead acquires a polarity that is opposite of the inducing field. As a result of this the opening up the passages of Arteries and Veins are far better than that of magnets. Much better healing and rejuvenation is experienced.

Various Literatures mention of powerful Anti Ageing properties of Rudraksha beads

This is mainly because of the Dynamic Polarity of the Rudraksha a bead thus the healing powers of Rudraksha are far superior to that of Magnets. In some sense Rudraksha beads can be termed to have some additional life or Intelligence as against Magnets.    

 

 

Black Magic Evil Eye the effects at home  

 

Home is the place where you literally put up your feet and relax. However, do you feel that you would rather stay late at your office or place of business, rather than rushing home at the earliest opportunity. Do you feel restless at home and feel that it is not "Home Sweet Home"???

I have some suggestions. First try to grow "TULSI" in an earthen pot. Tulsi will not survive where there are some problems. If it flourishes you can rest assured that there are no such problems. Another way is to offer a "Lemon" Mala at a local Devi temple. A fairly ancient temple (twentyfive years or older) of preferably Durga, Kali or any "Shakti" temple.

After it has been offered to the Goddess, ask the priest for a lemon or two and keep it preferably in your drawing room. Observe the lemon carefully after a week. If it has dried there is nothing to worry. If it becomes rotten after 2 to 3 days or a week, then everything is not ok. This happens where there is a bad influence or environment at home. One way to observe this is unnecessary arguments, frequent quarrels and unhappiness.

Light an earthen lamp facing East or North using Neem Oil everyday after sunset. Keep all the doors and windows closed for atleast an hour after lighting Neem Oil. Keep the lamp lit for atleast 2 hours. Do this for atleast a month. Please note if the home atmosphere has become more congenial after a week or 10 days. Later on you can mix Neem Oil and Til Oil in equal proportions and light the earthen lamp for a period of 3 months. The best thing about this remedy is that there are no side effects. This lamp can be lit preferably at the pooja room or the drawing room.

Keeping the doors closed does not mean that you deny access to family members or legitimate visitors inside the house. Do keep your house, no matter how small, neat and clean. Goddess Lakshmi does not visit dirty places.

Blessings of Yantra    

    

 

Rudra Centre's Yantras are sanctified and energized through an elaborate ritual by specialized priests at a temple in Maharashtra, India, before sending to the customer.

The Pranapratistha ritual is performed to infuse the Yantras with "life force" or energies of respective deities.

The Mantras are sent in a free Book along with the purchase.

Things you need to do after receiving Yantra:

• You need to install yantra after bath in the morning in direction as stated in the booklet or facing East direction.

• Light incense/oil lamp, offer a flower and chant the deity mantra or mantra of Yantra a minimum of 9 times.

• You may choose any auspicious day morning as per your convenience to install or wear your yantra.

If worshipped with sincere devotion, rewards will unfold.

 

What you get Free with your Yantra

It is important for a Yantra to be energized as it has to be brought "to live" through the specifically prescribed ritual so that it can radiate its beneficence optimally. An un-energized Yantra can be compared to a very complex music system that has been plugged in but not tuned or turned on and the aspirant has no idea which button will activate it. Trial and error over a period of time will cause the music system to function with erratic and irregular efficiency until one finally manages to figure it out, if at all.

Energized Yantras are immediately "tuned and turned on" so to speak. A Yantra will function even if not energized but it will take years, even decades, before it absorbs enough energy (from normal prayers and worship) to function as it should. The ritual of energizing Yantras prevents all this delay and uncertainty while ensuring efficient peak functions from the moment of purchase. It pays to remember that Yantras find their own homes; the intended worshipper does not find it just because he or she buys it.

 

 

 

Blood Pressure and Meditation  

 

      Many of the blood pressure medications, the "alpha and beta-adrenergic inhibitors" work by interrupting the activity of adrenalin, which excites the body to "fight or flight," and can raise the blood pressure, in many people. Meditation works in much the same way. While one is meditating, one has a respite from those jumbled thoughts and anxieties experienced in normal, daily life that cause the body to produce adrenalin, and other excitatory physic-chemicals. The body has the respite to return to homeostasis, that is, to rebalance. If one meditates once or twice every day, the rebalancing effect is greatly enhanced.

The mind is often and correctly called "a drunken monkey," because of the constant clamor of disorderly thought and internal dialogue. Meditation quiets the monkey, giving the body the ability to heal itself.


Some decades ago, a Westerner, a physician, I think, wrote a book called "The Relaxation Response." He noted that people who meditated on the word "one" enjoyed lower blood pressure, among other physical and emotional benefits. This was treated as a significant medical discovery.. which was funny, since Easterners have employed this technique for many millennia.

Of course, the primary benefit of yoga meditation is the elevation and expansion of consciousness, sometimes to a divine degree. It is often said that when one prays, one speaks to God, but when one meditates, one listens to God.    

 

 

 

 

Book Review Ekadash Rudra Shiva

 

        

For devotees of Lord Shiva and all other interested in Hindu mythology and religious history, the book "Ekadash Rudra Shiva" by H.K. Jain offers a fascinating insight into the various incarnations and manifestations of Lord Shiva.

Superbly illustrated with 17 paintings of Lord Shiva in his different Avatars (manifestations), the book contains several interesting and well-researched tales like the birth of Shiva from Shuchimati's womb in the form of Grahaspati, the three abodes of Lord Shiva, including his favorite one at Mount Kailash, and why Shani never torments the devotees of lord Shiva or those younger than 16 Years of age.

Jain, who offers the book "in the form of a prayer" also, brings out the multifaceted forms of Lord Shiva, who is revered as the creator and destroyer of the entire universe.

According to the Puranas, Lord Shiva is supposed to have the largest number of devotees for he is worshipped by even the Asuras (demons).

The book highlights various little-known episodes like the incarnation of Lord Shiva as Hanuman, the courageous monkey God. The book also narrates how Lord Rama came in contact with Hanuman during his search for his wife Sita, who was abducted by Ravana.

Instances from the Mahabharata, the Vedas and the Puranas as well as various midgets of information make the book a fascinating read for serious followers of Lord Shiva and also today's youth, for whom the book would be a captivating journey into India’s rich tradition and religious history.

The Author also deals with the history and origin of the Eleven Rudras – Shambhu, Pinaki, Girisha, Sthanu, Bbarga, Sadashiva, Shiva, Hara, Sharva, Kapali and Bhava in detail.

Another interesting narration in the book is the story of how Shri Markandeya attained immortality, and the origin of the word "Om", and also the "Gayatri mantra".

Apart from the many tales of historical and religious relevance, the book amply succeeds in bringing to life the different hues and colours of the many Gods and Goddess in the Hindu pantheon and also reminds us of universal values like compassion, sincerity, knowledge and benevolence to all.

Can Ladies wear Rudraksha  

      

 

Question as posted on Rudra Beads Societies Club

A temple priest advised me that ladies arent supposed to wear rudraksha mala. Rudraksha is a symbol of Lord Shiva and shouldnt be worn by ladies. Is that true? Could you pls advise and shed some light on this?

Answer posted by a Club Member

Do not let the Brahmin priest whom you saw at the temple, sway you or give you doubts about ladies wearing rudraksha. It was very unnecessary on his part to advice on a subject and ancient science that he is ignorant about and has not studied. In this case, I can only see "Ego"on his part. It is most likely that he is a "ceremonial master" as a priest or pujari and householder himself,not much more.

Does he know about rudraksha? Is he a rudraksha sadhak? Has he done successful penance to Lord Shiva? Does he himself in his home shrine have rudraksha? Has he read the Shiv Purana, Padma Purana,RudrakshaJapalopanishad and Srimad Devi Bhagavatam?

There are no taboos about women wearing rudraksha. All on earth can wear rudraksha. The instinct to wear or worship rudraksha is a sign of blessing by Lord Shiva during preceeding births (this is quoted in one of the ancient scriptures.

Btw, is the priest of any Shaivite lineage? There is no Shiva without Shakti. By the same token, there is no Shakti without Shiva. Hence Shiva and Shakti are "One" and "The Same". They are two sides of the same coin : The Ultimate Supreme God/dess.

This particular priest is seeing Duality in his samsara, hence he differentiates between men and women. All rudrkasha beads contain Deva and Devi. There are beads representing Shiva, Parvati,

Ganapati, Lakshmi, Durga, Hanuman, Vishnu, Maa Kali, the 10 MahaVidyas, Matrikas, etc. Since the beads also represent Devi or Shakti, this means women can wear rudraksha. Lord Shiva does not discrimminate betweeen men and women, caste, race, religion, color or background. God is available to all who aspire. So is Rudraksha. Hope this helps clear your doubts.

   

 

 

 

Can Tulasi and Rudraksha be used together

 

         In short, there is not a conflict of interest if one walks the straight and middle path. If you want to be a tyagi Vaishnava, full of misery, then just offend Lord Shiva by ignoring His blessings. Lord Shiva is the GREATEST Vaishnava, as well as being one of the Trimurti, and He is said to be God as yougurt is milk.

Many people are afraid to become Vaishnavas because they fear material ruination. This is not the case. Vishnu is not ones ill-wisher. God has better things to do than cause his devotees to be in poverty. In fact, His consort is the Goddess of Fortune Herself.

Lord Hari doesn't even recriprocate unless He is approached (asked). Just as ghee is in the cow's body but there is no benefit to the cow; it is by milking the cow, creating ghee, and feeding the gree to the cow that it derives benefit. In the same way God is in everyone, but He normally doesn't act unless requested to do so (prayer).
