Laws of Universe

The Laws of the Universe are quite simple. Energy can only be transferred by one form to another. It can only flow from region of higher to a region of lower energy.

The form which is a source of energy is called Maha-Vishnu or simply put as Vishnu. This energy form with due respect is referred to as Bhagawanta. This energy form is Eternal or Ananta (Infinite). It is represented in ‘male’ form as it has longer (in fact longest) duration of time in the universe. One might draw analogy with fertility (which is easy to comprehend) among mammals which are a higher form of life on earth. In mammals, fertility among males is up to transformation of the mammal form to another. It has longer time duration than in females. Hence, the male form of energy. It is all pervasive and is Sanathana implying that it has no end by measure of time duration (one likes it or not!).

Now, the explanation to Newton’s Laws, Charles’ Law, Boyle’s Law, Vander-Waal’s Law, Laws of Thermodynamics becomes easy based on the above theory.

Then one might wonder “What is entropy?”. So, What Entropy really means? Entropy in simple words in unconvertible energy & in the universe it keeps on increasing (that’s two bad NEWS at the same time).

Now, is it? Entropy when seen in terms of Law of conversion of energy is utter Ignorance. It is only a matter of knowing “Ways to Convert the Disorder into Useful energy form”. Although, we know from where the energy originates. The knowledge about this source of energy is not fully known even to this date.

There is one more binder of this energy and this is called Magnetism, could this be the Source??? We do not completely know! Magnetism is the principle behind the ‘gravitational pull’ as it is called. Everything (Kana/particle) exhibits magnetism & there by its POWER & also its that particle’s fundamental Right.

These particles behave in their own way. The way in which they behave is broadly and rightly classified into: Satvik, Rajasik and Tamasik (One can discuss ALL DAY OVER THESE behaviors/gunas). These are seen even in Humans. Thus, telling one thing: “THE UNIVERSE INSIDE IS SAME AS THE UNIVERSE OUTSIDE”. The classification of these gunas is based on the awareness of these particles about themselves (We already know that Universe Inside is same as universe outside). So, IF ONE KNOWS, FEELS AND UNDERSTANDS SELF HE UNDERSTANDS UNIVERSE {This is the Easiest Method, so one must always do What’s Easy so that later he can do What’s Possible and later one can achieve What’s Impossible)}. The limitation here is the knowledge one has about the UNIVERSE/SELF (Just switching RHS-Right Hand Side to LHS-Left Hand Side).

There is rule to the Law of Conservation of Energy: Which ist: Every Form Must Transform and there is a definite stipulated time for that form. This time duration allows this form for spend least energy to establish one form, propagate that form & then diminish that form to again trans-form to another and this sinusoidal wave of transformation continues. Almost all wave forms are Sinusoidal in nature for this reason. ALL THIS IS DONE BY BHAGAWANTA and hence is the knowledgeable person who creates, protector like a mother who propagates and an Owner who transforms in form one form to another. Since, the time duration is long people have understood this to be 3-forms of the same energy. It was named: Brahma, Vishnu and Eshwara/Shiva

Pramacharya pREACHINGS

Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara In the unbroken line of preceptors from Adi Sankara Bhagavatpada, downdards our beacon light in the Sanatana Vaideeka Marga, Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi, the 68th Sankaracharya, shone as bright as Adi Shankara. It was the good fortune of his devotees and of this century, that He was the exemplar for prompting peoples’ knowledge, faith and interest in the Karma-Bhakti-Jnana marga. For the learned and the layman, He expounded words of wisdom. These run into over 4000 pages and are being published in various languages. Indonesia has been similar to India, in their way of talk, habits, worship and culture. This has been so for ages. It is a true fact that Sri Mahaswami (Sage of Kanchi) had an affection towards the people of Indonesia. This book titled “Divine Nectar 50” has been translated into the Indonesian language by IBA NOOR AND STAFF “REALIA” Indonesian language school, Yogyakarta, Indonesia and published by P.R. Dandapani of P. T. Ispat Indo, Surabaya, Indonesia, while N. Rajan of UCO Bank Madras has been the co-ordinator . we bless the families of IBA NOOR, STAFF of “REALIA” , P.R. Dandapani, and N. Rajan and pray to MAHATRIPURASUNDARI SAMETA SRI CHANDRAMOULEESWARA that all Indonesians should read this book and benefit thereof. May those engaged in this noble task be the recipients of all bounties and we offer our blessings.

The medicine of Grace to wipe out our sorrows is to develop unshakable faith in God and tolerance is the medicine of Grace to wipe out our sorrows. Bhakti alone can give us the capacity to put up with sorrows. Temples are the agencies for developing that Bhakti. Hence, the need for temples at all places. All offerings to the deities in the temples are tokens of our gratitude to God.
2
That which is within all, which is seen as “This” is the source. He who is within and sees as “This” is God. It is the reality. It is in yourself. What is limited is Sadhana; what is unlimited is the end.
3
He alone is an Acharya, who, after clearly understanding the conclusive teachings of the Sastras, makes the people of the world gain their welfare by making them stick to the path shown in the Sastras and also himself does everything according to Sastras and remains in that experience.
4
Many acts relating to God, like building temples, digging tanks are performed. While executing them, there would be many difficulties. There would come also several kinds of dishonour. Not minding any of these, they would complete their tasks with mental one-pointedness removing impurities from their minds and letting the mind wander. By straightening their mind, they acquire mind control and at the end, they realise the Reality that is to be known. Digging tanks, building temples and such other acts are called poorttam. The performance of sacrifices, etc., is known as ishtam. Combining these two, we have the word Ishtapoortam.
5
In all that you do, let love be the sole motive. Any need must be with reference to another. Let action be out of love. Passions such as desire and hatred , anger and malice must be totally eschewed. If love becomes the grounding principle of all deeds . then most of the ills of the world will vanish.
6
We know many faults we commit, even if others do not know them. Sometimes we realise we are doing so many evil things and repent bitterly and feel why we should be born . Our duty is to pray to God -“I have committed so many faults. Will you not, 0 God, give me the will power not do like that in future and will you not purify my mind?” We must note down in a diary every night before we go to bed the faults committed by us and pray to God to give us courage and intelligence not to do so. This must be propagated widely.
7
Parameswara and Sriman Narayana are one and the same in reality. They are not two. This is the conclusive view of all the sastras. Names differ, forms are different, occupations vary, but the reality which is within Them is one and the same.
8
What is the purpose of human birth? To earn, to eat, to undergo misery everyday and finally to die? Instead of earning and suffering, can we not die now? The purpose of birth is to avoid re-birth. Except man, all animals grow horizontally. Only man grows vertically. Instead of growing horizontally, it is God’s will that he should grow vertically in order to look up. God has given to animals devices for self-protection; to man alone He has given intelligence. By doing nothing, we avoid re-birth; By giving up attachment, we avoid sins.
9
When any object is consumed by fire, it becomes charred. If that black residue is burnt again, it becomes white ash. White ash continues to remain white even when burnt again. This shows that white is the ultimate and black is proximate to it. Science tells us that diamond and coal are basically one. White and black are not colours. The primary colours get separated from the objects to which they are attached when subjected to the test of fire and ultimately white. Similarly, in the mental and spiritual place, the Ultimate Reality is Siva, who is white and proximate to Him is Parvati, who is dark. When we test everything in the fire of Jnana, or true knowledge, the residue is Siva. Ash in the material plane corresponds to Siva in the spiritual plane. We smear our bodies with the sacred ash to remind ourselves of Siva and the fact that the ultimate goal of life is Siva.
1 1
Much is said about the personal God and the impersonal absolute God with attributes and without attributes. It is only when all the colours in the light mix together that we get the colourless rays of the sun. Similarly by the very virtue of being the abode of attributes, God becomes Nirguna, attribute-less.
11
By education we realise Truth. There are many truths, History is one truth. Geography is one truth, Mathematics is one truth. The content of truth is the greatest in Mathematics. In others, there is an element of imagination. In Geography, we come across names Asia, Africa, Madras, Calcutta, etc. These names were given by us. By imagination, we have given names “plateau” “valley”, etc. By a process of gradual elimination of all that is imaginary, when we arrive at truth, that Truth is found to be God. To think of Him with real devotion is the fruit of education.
12
What is the use of education? Its first use is to develop humility (vinaya). In olden days, the disciple who went to a guru was called “vineyan” meaning a person of humility which is the hall-mark of Instruction he had from his guru, the fruit of education. Education without humility is no education. Education is the same today as it was before, but methods have changed. The medicine is the same but if the diet is changed, the medicine becomes poison. Education has today become merely the means of livelihood. For true education, the student should go to a guru and follow the guru-kula system.
13
Right education should make us know that God is the Truth. Knowledge must fill one with good qualities, through which one can realise the Truth, that is God. Therefore, the goal of knowledge is the understanding of the Ultimate Truth. The first fruit of education must be humility and self control.
14 The total surrender to the Lord is a means of learning our insignificance and the transcendent grace of the Lord.
15 If we engage an inquiry into the Atman, at the end of it, it will be clear that God is in us as our very self. When that stage is reached, we have no use for the devas. Then all karmas will fall away from us. But, until then, we must obligatorily do the karmas directing them to the Gods.
16 Those who are the leaders of a group, society, or state should not neglect the established religious customs and usages. For themselves the may mot be in need of Church ceremonies, for instance, their advance in spirituality may not require them. But if they begin to neglect them, the people for whom the rituals are really helpful, will also start neglecting them. This would be setting a bad example. In the words of the Bhagavad Gita, the wise one should not unsettle the minds of those who are ignorant, and are attached to action: on the contrary, he should encourage them to perform what they should perform, by himself doing the appropriate actions well and with diligence. It is duty cast upon the leaders and those that are at the top to lead the people from where they are, and not to refrain from participation in the traditional ways of worship.
Of all scriptures, the Gita has acquired a specialty of its own. Like this, there are many other books of wisdom. In the Mahabharata, there are many chapters teaching wisdom. Besides, in the Sivapurana, Vishnupurana, Skandham, etc., there is Jnanopadesa.
So also in agamas. But what is the special importance of Gita due to? Not only in our country but in countries like Java, people follow the Gita. My inference is that because it was born in an atmosphere utterly free from attachment – attachment to life, attachment to body, attachment to kith and kin, but out of attachment only to Reality, it has become so famous.On deep consideration, ahimsa appears to be good as an ideal or for preaching. But practically speaking, it is difficult to follow fully. First of all, we must love others. But if we love anyone too much, the end is sorrow. Therefore we should love God who always gives happiness and not sorrow. I ask myself if we love God, should we not love anyone else in this world? So long as there is false knowledge which distinguishes God from the rest of the world, there will be differences. If we attain Jnana that God is all, we will develop the same love for all that we have for God; This is the sign of Ahimsa.
For the sake of food, clothing and shelter, everyone is toiling and sorrow-stricken. If sorrow is to be banished and if we are to be ever happy, we must dedicate all our actions to God. If we get His grace, then we need not do anything and can be happy. God is a good master. By praising Him always, we cannot please Him. He is indifferent to our praise or dispraise, action or inaction. But all our actions are ordained by Him and are meant only to purify our minds.Why so many Gods? Is it not enough to have only one? Other religions speak of one God only and not many. We are assailed by such doubts. We eat to satisfy hunger, the stomach becomes full, there is no trouble or hunger. Then why can’t we take cooked rice alone? Why should we eat so many side dishes? So, if we eat, it is just not to fill the stomach, but we want food tasty to the palate and pleasing to the eyes. Whoever is attracted to a particular God he worships that.

Mandhata (मान्धाता) , also called Shivapuri or Onkareshwar, is an island in the Narmada river in Khandwa district in Madhya Pradesh. Situated on on the south bank of the Narmada, it contains one of the twelve great lingas of Shiva. Omkareshwar Mandhata is located on the Mandhata hill on the banks of the Narmada. The name “Omkareshwar” is due to the shape of the island. River Narmada and its branch river Kaveri form an island. This Island is shaped like the Om and is about 2km long and 1km wide. Local tradition reveals that King Mandhata paid homage to Shiva here and made this holy place his capital. Mandhata is also known by the name Amareshwara. Skandapurana Rewakhanda (28,133) has mentioned about this place. This place is situated at a distance of about 10 km from Omkareshwar railway station on Ajmer-Khandwa track.

Srimad Bhagavatam 9.7.1 : Sukadeva Gosvami said: The most prominent among the sons of Mandhata was he who is celebrated as Ambarisha. Ambarisha was accepted as son by his grandfather Yuvanasva. Ambarisha’s son was Yauvanasva, and Yauvanasva’s son was Harita. In Mandhata’s dynasty, Ambarisha, Harita and Yauvanasva were very prominent.

Gora (गोरा)[1] [2] Gaura (गौरा) Gor (गोर) Gaur (गौर) Goriya (गोरिया) Goria (गोरिया)[3] Gaurayan (गौरायण) Gaura (गौरा) is a Clan or Gotra of Jats found in Rajasthan,[4] Madhya Pradesh, Punjab in north India. Gharan and Ghori apparently are the names of the same clan and are found in Afghanistan.[5] Dilip Singh Ahlawat has mentioned it as one of the ruling Jat clans in Central Asia. [6] James Tod places it in the list of Thirty Six Royal Races.[7]

Origin

  • Some other historians quoting Manusamhita write that king Yuvanashwa married to a girl Gauri (गौरी) daughter of Matinara (मतिनार) Chandravanshi clan. Samrata Mandhata was born from them. After Gauri’s name the title of Mandhata became Gaur.[9]
  • According to the bards of the clan, Gora is a branch of Chauhans. But Goras being of earlier origin they seem to have joined Chauhan Confederacy as they are recorded with Chauhans.

History

Ram Swarup Joon[10] writes… Gaurs are Brahmins as well as Kshatriyas. They trace their origin to Suryavanshi King Mandhatha. Mandhatha‘s mother’s name was Goran, who was a Chandravanshi.

According to the “Vayu Purana” (Ansha 99. shloka 130) Mandhata was therefore called Gaur Naresh. According to Bhagwat Datt, both Gaur Brahmins and Gaur Kshatriyas started from King Mandhatha and the Harit gotra started from his great grandson. During the advent of Islam in Afghanistan the ruler of that place belonged to Ghore dynasty. His name was Subhag Sen. Even now there are a large number of people belonging to this dynasty in Zabalisthan and are called Ghorzai. Shahahuddin Mohammed Ghori belonged to this very dynasty. Ghore is a branch of the Baluches also, but they are not accepted as proper Baluchis. Bhagor in Bikaner was the capital of the Ghor kings, from where they were driven out by the people belonging to Bal Clan. After that they settled down in the mountainous county of Ajmer where they are found in large numbers even today. Bundi and Sirohi were also under their occupation. The Chauhan clan conquered the Ghors. Their inscriptions have also been found in Malwa and Bhind. The Bhandon Ghor kings ruled in Bhandra in district Hissar, and they were included in 35 royal clans. Jurel also belonged to Bhadon Ghor Clans.

Gaur or Gour Rajputs are one of the 36 major clans of Rajputs in India. Gaurs are of Suryavanshi lineage, claiming descent from Surya, the Hindu Sun-god or in English it is known as Solar Dynasty. As per Valmiki Ramayana’s Uttar kand, Lord Ram’s younger brother Bharat established the vansh. Upon division of the kingdom, he established the kingdom of Gandharv which later got distorted to Gaur.

See, What I mean

Insights into Editorial: Unending Slowdown Context: The Indian economy lost steam in the April-June quarter, slowing to a 13-quarter low of 5.7% as companies stalled production in June to prepare for the switch-over to the Goods & Services Tax regime. According to economists, prolonged effects of demonetisation also contributed to the slowdown. Data released by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) showed…

WTO & th role of soverign nations

Recently the Nirobi round of talks has ended in World Trade Organization  (WTO). The picture being painted is grim for developing worlds atleast. The talks are an attempt to talk-down on developing & under-developed world. What it is in actuality is a tool of the oligarchs or Multi-National Enterprises(MNE) who own a large capital world-wide to make the sovereign republics to act on the vihims of these oligarchs.

The heads of many a committees in WTO are associated with MNEs. They publish reports which best suits the interest of these MNEs & also lobby in their home countries(which are mainly western) to comply with their demands.They do not respect international treaties or the rules & regulations of international organizations.

This has turned the international relations, economies, businesses into dirty waters. For example, the signing of Trans-Pacific Partnership(TPP) & other such agreements. Unilateral sanctions on countries & declaration of war & invasion with considering sentiments of international community(After all, these wars happen for market-share & crude).

In the end, I would like to say that such un-dharmic attempts can only b suppressed by united spirit of people called governments. For  this governments need to function, in the same manner as a child has to educate(in literature, sports or any other form) himself(there is no better alternative).

India & the overall developement of society

India has traditionally been a peace loving country before, during & after british rule on this sub-continent. That does not mean has never used force against its external aggressors. The purpose of bringing this sentence in the beginning is to clear the reader of the prejudice. From about 5000 years ago when this sub-continent has seen the rise of ‘Harappan’ or ‘Indus valley’ civilization, this country has seen overall development.

The desire & urge for overall development among the people of this sub-continent is was so strong that they had artisans, craftsmen, technologists, traders, engineers, soldiers, merchants among them along with intellectuals(however, there is no solid proof for the same & it can only be analyzed).

During the later years upto the time of independence Indians(I am people of Indian sub-continent) were not eager for any kind of any major  war as they sincerely felt that military development could alter the social balance. For this they resisted many-a-invaders, but never let the society degrade. This is the beauty of this sub-continent.

But in the post-independence India this has taken the past glory has not been reflected in the governments that have ruled this sub-continent. Being socially, economically, technologically & militarily developed serves a greater purpose to this world as a whole.

For this the countries have to come out of their ego clashes.
