Goloka Vrindabvan

When Krishna was a little boy of five, his father, Nanda, took him to the field where the cattle were grazing. Krishna wanted to spring a surprise on his father, so he created a severe thunderstorm. It began to rain heavily and the trees were tossing wildly.Although Krishna was responsible for the storm, he pretended that he knew nothing. He started crying and screaming, and he clung to his father for Protection. Nanda was trying desperately to protect his child and also the cattle. He found that he could not manage to do the two things simultaneously, and so he was in a terrible predicament. All of a sudden, a most beautiful woman appeared. Nanda was very relieved to see this unknown woman who had come at such a crucial moment. “Would you kindly take care of my child?” he asked. “I must take the cattle home now. Then I will come back. I am sure that you will be able to protect my son.”“Do not worry.
                        I will definitely take good care of your child,” the woman assured Nanda. Nanda departed for home with the frightened cattle. When Krishna and the woman were alone together, Krishna did something extraordinary. He created a most enchanting scene and took the form of a youth. This youth was dark-skinned; he wore an orange cloth and on his forehead there was a peacock feather. In his hands, he held a flute which he was playing so hauntingly. Krishna looked at the woman and asked her, “Do you remember this Scene, when we were in Goloka Vrindabvan(Spiritual World),The unknown woman was Radha(Identification Revealed by Garga Rishi), who was Krishna’s dearest beloved. Radha replied, “I do remember this incident. It is very vivid to me.” Krishna was showing Radha a scene from their life together in Goloka Vrindabvan(Spiritual World)before they took incarnation on earth.
                       He wanted to remind Radha of their eternal relationship. At that moment, there appeared Brahma, the Creator. For 60,000 years he had been praying to the Highest only to have a glimpse of Radha. In his meditation, he had seen Krishna and Radha together on earth and he was deeply moved. So he came personally to see Radha, who was the embodiment of the Universal Force.Then Brahmaji performed their marriage as a pandit. Brahmā performed the wedding-ceremony of Lord Hari and Śrī Rādhikā.

                             Then, happy and humbly bowing down, Brahmā left for his own home.The time was fast approaching for Krishna’s father to come and take his son home,Krishna became a little child again. He started crying pitifully for his father to come and claim him. After some time, Nanda had still not appeared and Radha became very worried. She was wondering what to do when she heard a voice telling her to take the child to Nanda’s house.Radha was so sad and miserable that she had to return Krishna to his parents after being reunited with him on earth. She was afraid that she would not be able to see him anymore. But the voice told her, “Take the child back to Nanda and Yashoda. If you listen to me, I assure you that you will be able to go and see your Lord Krishna every evening. You will meet him and he will play his flute for you. A part of your heart will always remain with him.” Garga Samhita which describes marriage between radha and krishna was composed by Garga Muni,the family priest of family of Nanda, (the foster-father of Krishna) He named Krishna as "Krishna" after receiving the name by meditation.

Every sister gets brother like shri krishna...

In Mahabharata only one character had lived his life in full – Krishna. We never saw his eyes wet at any stage of his life. Instead Mahabharata says ‘he smiled’. When he faced problems from his formidable enemies, when he lost his own people, his countenance never faded. When Gandhari, from her heart wrenching pain cursed him, he smiled. When he witnessed the annihilation of his own family before his very eyes, he smiled. Like Rama he also suffered immensely in his life, but he always stood like a rock. And Rama wailed throughout his life. In their approach to life, one may say, Rama and Yudhishtira were idealists. Krishna, who saw the truth of life, was realistic and pragmatic. Interesting are these characters and their outlook towards life.



He was the true brother who supported his sister when her own husbands couldn't protect her...hope every sister gets brother like shri krishna...

Jai shrikrishna..

GREATNESS OF RADHA'S LOVE

                                       THE GREATNESS OF RADHA'S LOVE FOR KRISHNA

It is said in the ‘Chaitanya Charitramrita’ and narrated by Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu that once Shri Krishna was crying for a Gopi who was unable to come to Krishna as she had household chores. Radha was watching all this. Meanwhile she personally went to the Gopikas house and then fell on her feet and said,” My Krishna is crying for you.Please go and visit him once. If you do so,I would become your Dasi eternally.”

Through her example, Radha showed the world the meaning of true love and to what extent one has to sacrifice to really learn to love.

Radha is indeed the greatest lover of all times. Hundred and thousand times greater.That’s why she was so dear to Shri Krishna.




Who in this world would be able to sacrifice to the extent Radha did without a tinge of Jealousy?

No one.

But Radha and devotees like her can only realize the true meaning of love.

Therefore even today on devotees lips lives "Radhe Radhe"…

The Vedic Science behind Eating With Your hands

Hands are considered our most precious organ of action. Our hands and feet are said to be the conduits of the five elements--space, air, fire, water and earth. One of the five elements courses through each finger. Through the thumb, angushtha, comes space; through the forefinger, tarjani, air; through the midfinger, madhyama, fire; through the ring finger, anamika, water and through the little finger, kanishtha, earth.

In Vedic tradition, we eat with our hands because the five elements within them begin to transform food and make it digestible even before it reaches the mouth. This transformation also heightens the senses so that we can smell, taste and feel the texture of the foods we are eating. We can also hear the sounds of eating. All of these sensations are a necessary prelude to beckoning agni, the fire of digestion, to ready itself for the meal to come.Eating with your hands is remembering your sacred nature.
 
In ghronikah mudra the five fingertips form a petal around a lump of food about the size of a plum. This is one of the two main mudras used for eating solid food.

In annabhakshana mudra, use the fingertips to pick up a small amount of food, sufficient to fit on the base of the four fingers. Use the thumb to advance the food forward and into the mouth. This is the second of the two main mudras for eating any solid food. This mudra practice cultivates our discrimination in eating good quality food in the appropriate quantity and in a tranquil environment.

 Kangulah mudra is taking food with the thumb, forefinger and mid-finger. Engage this mudra when eating long, slender pieces of food. As we bring food to our mouth in kangulah mudra, the palm of the hand faces upward, evoking the spirit of consciousness as we touch upon Nature. This mudra cultivates a gentle reverence for Nature's precious gifts. The first mudra, Ghronikah, activates and balances the element of earth within the body. The earth element controls our sense of smell and gives us added vision to "smell our way," that is, to be keenly aware of our connection to Mother Nature.


Kadambah mudra crouches the five fingers around firm, solid food. This mudra is reserved for eating round-shaped fresh fruits that fit neatly in the palm of the hand, such as mango. Practicing this mudra helps us to remember to be grateful for every speck of Nature's food.


Mukulah mudra is eating with all five fingers tightly knitted together. In this mudra a minimal quantity of food is taken at a time, for example, ten grains of cooked rice. The mudra is used in annaprashanam, or the ceremony of first feeding, one of the 16 samskaras, usually performed in the fifth or sixth month of a child's life.  Every bite of food must serve to awaken cosmic memory of the first food we, as conscious human beings, imbibe from the Mother's nectary.


Khatakamukhah mudra is tasting or sampling food with forefinger, mid-finger and thumb tightly pinched. This mudra measures the equivalent of a half-teaspoon. It is used to mete out spices and condiments in cooking. We may also use it as a pinch-measure for medicines. Food is the most potent form of medicine. We need to exercise caution. Keeping our hearts open but our hands half-closed when receiving food is a good policy to maintain. Khatakamukhah mudra helps us to exercise firm discretion around food.

Ramayan era plants bear witness to vanvas route

People who belittle Ramayan as a mythology or a mere epic and Lord Ram as a fictitious character should be ready to give up their skepticism. Two Chennai-based botanists have come out with a three-year-long study which establishes that the Ramayan is a true life story authored by Valmiki, incorporating facts, figures, science and environment of the period.
All 182 plants (including flowers, trees, fruits) mentioned in the Ramayan have been found to be true. M Amrithalingam and P Sudhakar, the two botanists working with the CPR Environmental Education Centre, Chennai, said they could confirm the existence of the flora and fauna mentioned by Valmiki in the Ramayan.
“We tracked the route travelled by Lord Ram, Sita and Lakshman from Ayodhya in the north to south as part of their exile to the forest for 14 years. To our surprise, we could identify all the plant species in the Ramayan mentioned by Valmiki along this route,” Amrithalingam told The Pioneer. As a taxonomist, Sudhakar confirmed the plant variety with their Sanskrit and Latin names.
The duo commenced their journey from Ayodhya and reached Chitrakuta’s tropical and deciduous forest. “Valmiki knew his flora, fauna and the geography. What we found was that the same flora and fauna existed in the same places as written in the epic,” pointed out Nanditha Krishna, director, CPREEC, who supervised the project.

According to Krishna, the Ramayan is geographically very correct. “All sites in their route are still identifiable and has continuing traditions . It is not possible for a person to just write something out of his imagination and fit it into local folklore for greater credibility. Valmiki has not erred anywhere while specifying the plant species, flowers and wild animals,” she said.
Sudhakar pointed out that in the Ramayan, Ram, Sita and Lakshman were warned to be cautious while they entered Dandakaranya forests. “This forest had lions and tigers. Now there are no lions in the area. This is because they were killed by poachers over the centuries. But the rocks in the famous Bhimbetka has prehistoric paintings of lion and tigers together which confirm Valmiki’s observation,” he said.
Amrithalingam and Sudhakar journeyed from Dandakaranya to Panchavati and Kishkinda. “We found that Kishkinda has a dry and moist climate which synchronises with what Valmiki has authored,” said Amrithalingam.
Chitrakuta and Dandakaranya regions mentioned in the epic are spread across the modern day Madhya Pradesh, Odisha and Andhra Pradesh, according to Krishna. Panchavati, from where Sita was abducted by Ravan, is situated on the banks of River Godavari on modern Maharashtra. “Diverse types of animal and bird species of this region have been mentioned by Valmiki. These include hamsa (swan), karandava (coot), kraunca(pond heron), Mayura (peacock) and sarasa (crane). These are all visible in the region even today,” said Krishna.  
Lord Ram in his conversation with Sita and Lakshman speaks about the significance of plants and trees which they come across during their journey. “Even today we have Sthala Vriksha (trees associated with each location) and plants which are worshipped. Tulsi, banyan, punnaga are some examples to substantiate the theory that Ramayana is not just a story but a chronicle,' said Krishna.
The research took them to Sri Lanka where too they found the flora and fauna which are all mentioned in the Ramayan. Ravan’s botanical garden was known as Ashoka Vana because of the presence of Ashoka trees. “The evergreen Ashoka Vana could be described as a garden where nature is portrayed in all its glory,” said Amrithalingam.
According to Krishna, Valmiki knew what he was writing about. “Unless he was thorough about the topography, geography and ecology of the region, he could not have provided such sharp and precise observation of the time, place and location,” she said. The findings of Amrithalingam and Sudhakar has been published in the format of a book titled Plant and Animal Diversity in Valmiki's Ramayan.

Greek painting of Lord Krisha

Greek painting of lord krishan of the 2nd century A.D.

"A Pastoral Scene" is of the 2nd century A.D. and is on display at the museum in Corinth, 60 Km. from Athens (Greece). Obviously this is Lord Krishna the Hindu incarnation in his boyhood. The bare body, the horizontal flute, the cross-legged stance, standing under a tree with a few cows grazing around is exactly how Krishna is depicted in Hindu pictures. 

This is proof that in ancient Hindu Europe, Krishna and Rama as much as the Shiva Linga were worshipped as they are still worshipped by the Hindus in Hindusthan.

HOW THE HELL DID THEY DO IT?

The art of Navigation was born in the river Sindhu 6000 years ago. The very word Navigation is derived from the Sanskrit word NAVGATIH. The word navy is also derived from Sanskrit 'Nou'.

Bhaskaracharya calculated the time taken by the earth to orbit the sun hundreds of years before the astronomer Smart. Time taken by earth to orbit the sun: (5th century) 365.258756484 days.

To all the People who point us at Idol Worshipping ! And to all the hateful messages by some Muslims saying about our Idol Worshipping, This is the answer ! 

         Our Dharma is so flexible because you have no boundation, you can attain salvation, by worshipping idols, not worshipping idols, just believing in god and doing the good work, by meditation, by jap, by tap. And many more, in Sanathan Dharma you are not bounded, it's the first and oldest in the world, it has given everything to the world, the music in form of "Shastriya-Sangeet" which means derived from the shastra, Theatre from Natya-Shastra, Astrology & Astronomy Jyotish-Shastra & Khagol Vigyaan, Vaastu From Vaastu-Shastra, Economics From Arth-Shastra, Meditation - Yoga, Surgery from Sukshut-Samhita, medicine from Ayur-Veda. Aryabhatt invented Zero, And Vedic maths also given by us, and which religion or dharma prays for all in this world even plants and herbs.

And many more even I'm unable to tell, just have faith in your dharma respect all but at least oppose when someone insults your dharma and remember when the world was roaming with no clothes on then in the darkness the sun of knowledge was shining upon us as we had everything one could need.

say Rama or say Shyama

The poetic lyrics of the bhajan are  sweet sung in the praise of attributes of the form of Lord Rama and Lord Krishna.

Two names are beautiful in this world, say Rama or say Shyama.

One (Krishna or Shyama) steals the butter in Brij another (Shri Rama) eats the bel from Bhilini (Sabri, a devotee with divine love towards Lord Rama and infinite patience)


Both's work are filled with divine wonderful love.

One (Lord Krishna) kills the demon king Kans other (Lord Rama ) kills Ravana. Both destroys the agony and pain of weak, both are the source of power.



One dances with Radhika, the Other sits with Sitaji
Say Radhe Shyam or say Sita Ram both are beautiful names.
