Sky During the Mahabharata War. The date of Mahabharata is often debated. However it may be noted that it has been accepted as a Fact of History and not a legend. I will posting on this. External Evidence based on references to Mahabharata by other Works.

Nov 23,  · Janita promised herself if anyone asks her to perform at the open mic she would not say no, so here she is doing a beautiful intro to the Bhagavad Gita.

Contact The Origin of Yoga In the modern era, the origin of yoga is not usually given much importance. Yoga was a way of life, a culture and a lifestyle which encompassed not just techniques, practices or ideas, but also eating habits, bathing habits, prayer, social interaction, and work. It was first expounded in the great shastras texts , known as the Vedas.

Four in number, these are the earliest scriptures known to mankind, extending back thousands of years. Vedas Together, these texts explain and regulate every aspect of life, from supreme reality to all worldly affairs. Here, and in much classical literature to follow, is where we can see evidence of the origin of yoga. When Did Yoga Originate? The exact birth of the Vedas is lost in the distant past. The Vedas themselves were ancient hymns, originally sung in the forests by Rishis seers who lived remote, ascetic lives … and in this way were passed from guru to disciple for perhaps thousands of years before being put to writing… … Hindu tradition itself puts the Vedas as far back as 10, years.

Yoga Basics

We are not interested in new age mumbo-jumbo. We are interested in understanding what is real and what is false. This is why we, along with all other great minds, consult the Vedic texts.

The Srimad Bhagavad-Gita is the essence of all Vedic knowledge, the Word of God in Person. The Srimad Bhagavatam, has the pastimes of God and the history of humans dating back to creation, trillion years ago. Only the Vedic scriptures contain the pastimes of God and His description. One should study these two scriptures.

Nevertheless any associations with subject matter used in this entry can be assumed incidental as the game merely attempts to mimic undulations of fate. Instead, here thematic material is broken into two basic streams of investigation. There I will attempt to lay the foundations bare and clear up some of those long established, divisive cultural myths. I have discussed the progressive links highlighting how Annunaki genetics have devolved as the human genome before , so this series of articles will go into much more detail, hopefully going some way towards resolving clarity.

Assuming everything goes to plan, introductory findings will neatly compliment part two: Therefore, shorter articles might bless a more worthy audience and I shall treat the first part as a prelude to part two. There may be several subsequent instalments as requiring subject matter is highly convoluted. Because science behind the human genome project has more-or-less preconfigured conclusions to fit on-going politically charged preconceptions, information value to sincere researchers is limited.

Though a couple of serious wobbles to the scoped narrative line have accorded an occasional borderline mainstream Media frenzy, these protests have always dwindled to teacup size. This is partly frustrated by the fact that trawling trillions beyond trillions of symptomatic markers emphasising amino acid chains does not even approximate the scope of real DNA as it is absent from normal sensory perception or the five senses.

Bizarrely, the most authentic evidence of our genetic history can be found in the atomic layer as that is where fundamental existence progressive decisions are executed and why radioactive fallout affects genetics.

The great Rishis of the Vedic age composed the hymns, fought their wars, and ploughed their fields; but they were neither Brahmins, nor Kshatriyas nor Vaisyas. The banks of the distant Ganga and Jumna are rarely alluded to; the scenes of war and social ceremonies are the banks of the Saraswati and her tributaries. This was the Hindu world when the hymns were composed. India’s first spiritual and cultural ambassador to the West, came to represent the religions of India at the World Parliament of Religions, held at Chicago has said: They hold that the Vedas are without beginning and without end.

A traditional religious dating for the events of the Mahabharata War according to the chronology established in Gupta times by Aryabhata on grounds of archaeoastronomical calculations places the Mahabharata (including the Bhagavad Gita) in the late 4th millennium BC ( BC or BC[16]).

Vidvan Gauranga Das – favoritefavorite – August 31, Subject: A mediocre translation This is only good for those learning Sanskrit. The actual message of the Gita is meant for those who are interested in becoming obedient to Krishna’s instructions. As Krishna Himself states in And in the Ninth Chapter, He specifies that such devotees who chant His names are the greatest souls. So, the whole point is missed if one imagines that the Gita is a book subject to open interpretation.

We can’t even construct effective open interpretations with a bulletin issued by Government, so how can we do it with a sacred bulletin issued by the One Supreme God in simple Sanskrit? Eric Goedhart – favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite – May 16, Subject:

Spiritual But Not Religious: Life Lessons from the Bhagavad-Gita

Translations from the Katha, Prasna and Chhandogya Upanishads. Puranas The Puranas are post-Vedic texts which typically contain a complete narrative of the history of the Universe from creation to destruction, genealogies of the kings, heroes and demigods, and descriptions of Hindu cosmology and geography. There are 17 or 18 canonical Puranas, divided into three categories, each named after a deity: Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

There are also many other works termed Purana, known as ‘Upapuranas. Wilson [ ] A primary text of the Vaishnava branch of Hinduism, and one of the canonical Puranas of the Vishnu category.

Bhagavad Gita The Bhagavad Gita, usually considered part of the sixth book of the Mahabharata (dating from about or B.C.), is a central text of Hinduism, a philosphical dialog between the.

That which is prescribed in the Vedas constitutes dharma, the religious principles, and the opposite of that is irreligion. This we have heard from Yamaraja. Only Lord Krishna is known eternally as the Supreme person and so he is the only God, and the Vedic knowledge is eternal and thus the Vedic knowledge is the instructions of God.

That which is opposed to what is taught in the Vedic scriptures is called irreligious, and those who follow the irreligious teachings are called the unbelievers of God, envious of God, and atheistic. There are more than , verses in the eternal Vedic scriptures and the essence of all the Vedic knowledge is the Bhagavad-Gita and thus one should study and follow the Bhagavad-Gita to follow all the Vedic teachings. Indeed, I am the compiler of Vedanta, and I am the knower of the Vedas.

By Gururaj Mutalik By Dr. Gururaj Mutalik and Editorial Team Introduction: Srimad Bhagavad-Gita is the true, perennial philosophy for mankind. For Indians who are guided by the tenets of its Universal Shaswata Sanatana Dharma philosophy it represents the ultimate essence, derived from Vedic philosophy, and Upanishadic teaching. It is one of the most clear and comprehensive summaries of perennial philosophy ever revealed; hence its enduring value is subject not only to India, but to all humanity.

One more great quotation deserves its place here.

Donate Why Krishna is God? If you can answer these questions, only then can you truly say you know God. The Vedic scriptures are the oldest scriptures in the World and the only scriptures that can answer all these questions and in detail. The Vedic scriptures completely describe God. His history, address, qualities, description, how he creates and maintains and so on. That God is Lord Krishna. The first requirement is that the contender for the position of the supreme has been seen.

Seeing is believing, not seeing is pure speculation. Lord Krishna has incarnated at least 9 times so far in the current cycle of creation. In each incarnation millions saw him. There is scientific evidence to prove that he existed years ago, as stated in the Vedic scriptures.

Transformation of Hinduism, origins of the Bhagavad Gita, and how it doesn’t tell just one truth

There are Weinsteins everywhere, but only in certain industries is there a Weinstein effect. It is blatantly apparent that the time of reckoning for sexual harassment and sexual miscreants has finally arrived. Every day the name of a new high powered figure is added to the chorus of accusers and accusations, ultimately bringing in its wake shame and career -altering consequences.

Bush, Alabama judge Roy Moore, Charlie Rose, Brett Ratner, and the latest Disney Executive George Lasseter is an unmistakable sign that methods formerly used by political figures, stars, top executives, directors and producers to cover up their wrongdoings is just not working any more. The proclivity for paying hush money to victims, and forcing them to sign heavy-handed non-disclosure agreements, can no longer buy silence.

The veil of secrecy has been rent and a very clear message is being sent.

Surname 1 Name Professor Course Date Comparison of the Bhagavad Gita and the Dao De Jing Bhagavad Gita has an origin dating back in the B.C. Bhagavad stands for a Supreme power like god while Gita means a song. Its translation in English means “Song of God”. It has acted as a source of inspiration to a lot of leaders in political and scholarly classes.

Then I realized that this one alone could take up a whole article, since it brings up so much good stuff: I spoke to you on Skype over a year ago about whether it could work out between me and my boyfriend who is 5 years younger than me. I was concerned about my biological clock and whether he would be ready in time to make a commitment towards marriage. He is totally committed to our relationship and my parents adore him.

He treats me really well, is responsible, self-disciplined, clever and insightful so I feel like I can really grow with him. Are you just supposed to know? I only want to get married once and I want to be happily married.

Why Krishna is God?

It brings to its readers a message of spiritual wisdom. It is possible to bring it with you everyone to absorb its meaning. What is the Bhagavad-Gita? The Bhagavad-Gita is an ancient text from India.

The Bhagavad Gita (/ and 2nd-century CE, though some claim a few parts can be put as late as CE”, states Fowler. The dating of the Gita is thus dependent on the uncertain dating of the Mahabharata. The actual dates of composition of the Gita remain ge: Sanskrit.

Bronze chariot , depicting discourse of Krishna and Arjuna in Kurukshetra Authorship The epic Mahabharata is traditionally ascribed to the Sage Vyasa ; the Bhagavad Gita, being a part of the Mahabharata’s Bhishma Parva, is also ascribed to him. Hindu traditionalists assert that the Gita came into existence in the third or fourth millennium BCE , around the ending of Dwapara Yuga.

Matsya Purana mentions that he was 89 years old when the battle was fought. And Mahabharata states that Sri Krishna lived 36 years after the Kurukshetra war. Professor Jeaneane Fowler, in her commentary on the Gita, considers second century BCE to be the likely date of composition. It is estimated that the text probably reached something of a “final form” by the early Gupta period about the 4th century CE.

The actual dates of composition of the Gita remain unresolved. The Buddha refers to 3 Veda rather than the 4 Vedas, as per general perception in many dialogues. So, availability of Bhagavad Gita during Buddha’s time creates doubt. Hindu synthesis and smriti See also: Smarta Tradition Due to its presence in the Mahabharata, the Bhagavad Gita is classified as a Smriti text or “that which is remembered”.

Acceptance of the Vedas became a central criterion for defining Hinduism over and against the heterodoxies, which rejected the Vedas. The emerging self-definitions of Hinduism were forged in the context of continuous interaction with heterodox religions Buddhists, Jains, Ajivikas throughout this whole period, and with foreign people Yavanas, or Greeks; Sakas, or Scythians; Pahlavas, or Parthians; and Kusanas, or Kushans from the third phase on [between the Mauryan empire and the rise of the Guptas].
