    This Blog is an Humble attempt to spread the Divine Message of Pujjya BapuJi & Dedicated at the Lotus feets SHRI CHARANKAMAL Of PARAM PUJYA GURUJI SANT SHRI ASARAM JI BAPU VishwaGuru Of the Age.

    The essence of Bharata lies in Her culture of Self-realization. ParamAtman is not seen as something apart, but as our very essence, the one True Self that resides in the heart of us all. Raising ourselves from ordinary individuals to the heights of Supreme Consciousness is only possible with the guidance of one who is already in that transcendent state. Such a one is called a Satguru, a True Yogi, as in one who has gained mastery over the mind, one who is beyond the mind.

    From ancient times up to the present day, an unbroken succession of Self-realized Saints have incarnated in the Land of Yogis & Saints Bharata to lead seekers of Truth to the ultimate reality.

Shubha Deepavali 


deepo jyotihi param brahma deepo jyotirjanaardana
deepo haratu me paapam deepo jyotirnamostute

‘I salute the pious flame of the ‘deep’ that is the veritable embodiment of Supreme Brahman. May that sacred flame, personifying Lord Vishnu, destroy all my sins.’

Deepavali 3 nov 2013

from Ashram.org

saa vidya yaa muktaye

‘The True Knowledge is that which liberates.’

‘Deepavali’, the festival of lights, symbolizes the victory of the light of Knowledge over the darkness of ignorance. This effulgent festival of the Indian culture inspires us all to illuminate our lives with the light of knowledge.

Deepavali is the birthday of Lakshmiji. On this day, we should pray to Her, “O Mother! That Who is dear to You, may also be dear to me”. And it is Lord Narayan, who is dear to Maa Lakshmi. If Lord Narayan becomes dear to us, Lakshmiji will obviously be pleased with us & bestow Her blessings upon us.

It was on this holy day of Diwali that Lord Sri Rama  arrived in Ayodhya after fouteen years, and as such all the  Palaces houses and streets were cleaned and decorated. Sweets were distributed and lamps were lit in celebration of Lord Rama’s homecoming & to welcome the most holy & most dear God Sri Rama & most holiest Goddess Sita

Mantra Sadhana for pleasing the Goddess:

Diwali Nightis one of the Mahaaraatris, doing Japa Dhyan on this Night is uncountable times beneficial than on a normal day. So Pujya Bapuji asks sadhak to do Japa with intense love, if one feels sleepy – sleep doing Japa, it will be continued when you wake up.

Diwali Night is incarnation day of Maa Lakshmi, so Lakshmi Prapti Sadhna on this night is much more beneficial than any other day, Following are mantras that can be done on this holy night.

Maa Lakshmi Mantra

दिवाली की रात कुबेर भगवान ने लक्ष्मी जी की आराधना की थी तो कुबेर बन गए ,जो धनाढ्य लोगो से भी बड़ा धनाढ्य है..सभी धन का स्वामी है..ऐसा इस काल का महत्त्व है.. दिया जलाके जाप कराने वाले को धन, सामर्थ्य , ऐश्वर्य पाए…ध्रुव , रजा प्रियव्रत ने भी आज की रात को लक्ष्मी प्राप्ति का , वैभव प्राप्ति का जप किया था…मन्त्र बहुत सरल है…मन्त्र का फल प्राप्त करने के लिए श्रद्धा से मंत्र सुने –
माँ लक्ष्मी मन्त्र :-

श्रीं ह्रीं क्लीं ऐं कमलवासिन्यै स्वाहा

shreem hreem kleem aieem kamala vasinayai swahaa

दीपावली पर लक्ष्मीप्राप्ति की सचोट साधना-विधियाँ

धनतेरस से आरंभ करें

सामग्रीः दक्षिणावर्ती शंख, केसर, गंगाजल का पात्र, धूप अगरबत्ती, दीपक, लाल वस्त्र।

विधिः साधक अपने सामने गुरुदेव व लक्ष्मी जी के फोटो रखे तथा उनके सामने लाल रंग का वस्त्र (रक्त कंद) बिछाकर उस पर दक्षिणावर्ती शंख रख दे। उस पर केसर से सतिया बना ले तथा कुमकुम से तिलक कर दे। बाद में स्फटिक की माला से मंत्र की 7 मालाएँ करे। तीन दिन तक ऐसा करना योग्य है। इतने से ही मंत्र-साधना सिद्ध हो जाती है। मंत्रजप पूरा होने के पश्चात् लाल वस्त्र में शंख को बाँधकर घर में रख दें। कहते हैं – जब तक वह शंख घर में रहेगा, तब तक घर में निरंतर उन्नति होती रहेगी।

मंत्रः ॐ ह्रीं ह्रीं ह्रीं महालक्ष्मी धनदा लक्ष्मी कुबेराय मम गृह स्थिरो ह्रीं ॐ नमः।

Om hreem hreem hreem maha laxmi kubearaaya mamma ghriha sthiro hreem namaha

दीपावली से आरंभ करें

दीपावली पर लक्ष्मी प्राप्ति के लिए विभिन्न प्रकार की साधनाएँ करते हैं। हम यहाँ अपने पाठकों को लक्ष्मीप्राप्ति की साधना का एक अत्यन्त सरल व मात्र त्रिदिवसीय उपाय बता रहे हैं।

दीपावली के दिन से तीन दिन तक अर्थात् भाईदूज तक एक स्वच्छ कमरे में धूप, दीप व अगरबत्ती जलाकर शरीर पर पीले वस्त्र धारण करके, ललाट पर केसर का तिलक कर, स्फटिक मोतियों से बनी माला नित्य प्रातःकाल निम्न मंत्र की दो-दो मालाएँ जपें।

Holy mantra sadhana for blessing of maa lakshmi

started from Deepavali day

for three days from deepavali to yama dwitiya

ॐ नमः भाग्यलक्ष्मी च विद् महे।
अष्टलक्ष्मी च धीमहि।
तन्नोलक्ष्मी प्रचोदयात्।

Om namaha bhagya laxmi cha vidmahe ashta laxmi cha deemahi

tanno laxmi pachodayaat

2 malas everyday ,two malas eachday

best with spahatik mala, crystal mala or any mala ( rosary beeds )would do like  red sandal , tulsi, lotus, etc

दीपावली लक्ष्मीजी का जन्मदिवस है। समुद्र मन्थन के दौरान वे क्षीरसागर से प्रकट हुई थीं। अतः घर में लक्ष्मी जी के वास, दरिद्रता के विनाश और आजीविका के उचित निर्वाह हेतु यह साधना करने वाले पर लक्ष्मी जी प्रसन्न होती हैं।

Diwali Tips from Ashram.org

Be Happy and Cheerful during Diwali Days

• दिवाली के दिवस , धन तेरस को दीप उत्सव के साथ ध्यान रखे की दिवाली के दिनों में दिनभर प्रसन्न, उल्हासित , आनंदित रहना है …
• उन दिनों में शांत हो के अच्छी तरह से प्राणायाम करे….शाम को सूर्य अस्त के पहले मन में गुरु मन्त्र जप के प्राणायाम करना है ….कुम्भक कर के श्वास अन्दर रोक के गुरुमंत्र जपे और छोड़ते समय बाहर फूंक मारनी है…….ऐसे १० से १५ करो..ऐसा करने से चित्त में भगवत प्रसाद-जा कण बनेंगे.. मन प्रसन्न रहेगा॥
ॐ नमो नारायणाय ..सर्व समर्थ्यम लक्ष्मी नारायण.. ऐसे चिंतन कर के हँसते हँसते नींद में जाना है ॥

दिवाली को रात को सूर्यास्त के समय श्वास अन्दर भर के “ॐ शान्ति” ५ बार जप कर के फूंक मार के बाहर छोड तो रोग, चिंता और कटु स्वभाव को बाहर छोड़ दो….२७ से करो…अभी आज से ही २३ २४ से ही करो … सूरज के किरण हो तब करना…

१० /१५ बार करो दिवाली के शाम को ऐसा करो..और रात को सो जाओ तो लक्ष्मी जी विचरण करती है …इसलिए “लक्ष्मी -नारायण ॐ ॐ” ऐसे जपो…श्वास अन्दर जाए तो “ॐ शान्ति” बाहर आए तो एक…श्वास अन्दर जाए तो “ॐ आनंद” श्वास बाहर आए तो.. “२” ऐसे अपने दिल में भगवान की भक्ति जगाते सो जाना…. ऐसा कर के सोयेंगे , सुबह उठेंगे तो वर्ष का प्रथम दिन सुख-शान्ति में जायेगा …तो वर्ष भर आनंद में जायेगा…॥

During Diwali, Goddess Saraswati is also worshipped along with Goddess Lakshmi, so that we may attain learning as well, along with wealth. Not just bread-winning education, but also the Knowledge that makes our life fragrant with the flower of liberation.

Do Laxmi Pooja

Please read below Satsang Vani by Pujya Bapuji

दिवाली की रात लक्ष्मी पूजन करना, धन -संपत्ति रहे..लेकिन लक्ष्मी आए तो धन संपत्ति का उपयोग केवल भोग वासना से पाशवी जीवन में उड़ाने के लिए नही करे,अपने जीवन में संयम , सदाचार, परदुख कातरता हो , अपनी आवश्यकता पूर्ति हो , लोक कल्याण में तन, धन लगे, पुरुषार्थ एवं उद्योग से लक्ष्मी प्राप्त होती है, सत्कर्म और दान-पुण्य से बढ़ती है, तथा संयम से सावधानी से लक्ष्मी स्थायी होती है |

Celebration & Traditions

The Story of King Bali :
With his valour Bali conquered every bit of space, thus he became the most powerful king on earth. In his kingdom, justice was mere word, truth had no place and happiness was a dream. His form of charity was an occasion for pomp and show and those who went to seek Alms from the king Bali suffered the indignity of insults and humiliation. In fact, he felt that the vast wealth will remain and the pittance he handed out now and again could not affect even an iota of his asset. His false beliefs, arrogance and misrule ended when the Lord disguised as beggar and humble proved to Bali that his concepts were totally wrong and even his vast wealth could disappear in seconds. King Bali asked the dwarf beggar to ask for anything in his kingdom and with three steps even his crown vanished. With his first step Lord Vishnu covered the entire heaven and with the second step the earth and asked Bali where to keep his third step. Bali offered his head and became spiritually enlightened. Thus, this festival has a far deeper significance than a mere exhibition of gaiety and splendor. The Narak chaturdashi day therefore is dedicated to lights and prayers heralding a future full of joy and the elimination of greed.

Celebrations :
In South-India, people wake up before sunrise prepare a paste by mixing Kumkum in oil, which is called ‘Ubtan’, on their foreheads and then take bath.
Bathing after rubbing oil on body on this morning of Narak Chaturdashi gives Long Life & good Health

Story of Narakchaturdashi from Srimad Bhagvad Maha Puraan

In Dwapar Yuga, Lord Krishna, the ascendant of Lord Vishnu, killed the notorious demon Narakasura on the same day as that of Diwali.

Narakasura was the son of Goddess Bhoomi. Despite of a great parentage, he possessed devilish tendencies.
Narakasura gota boon that he may be only killed by the hands of a women as he considered them to be weak he thought he would become immortal.
After getting this boon he started terrrifying all the three worlds.
He used to loot the people of three worlds and due to the supernatural powers he had nobody could stop him. Not only he plundered their valuable things, but abducted the womenfolk too. There was a terror of Narakasura everywhere.

Once Narakasura attacked the heavens to get hold of the army of elephants of Lord Indra. Indra being helpless before the demon, immediately to Lord Krishna to ask for help. Krishna at that time was spending a leisurely time with his wife Satyabhama. In order to fulfill both his duties as a friend and as a husband he took Satyabhama at the battlefield.

On his divine vehicle Garuda (a giant eagle), Lord Krishna set for the fort of Narakasura. His grand fort was guarded by a five headed demon Mura.

Lord shri Krishna destroyed all his forts and raksha kavachs along with the whole army of demons.


With his Sudarshana flying discus, Krishna beheaded Mura and then challenged Narakasura to come to fight on the battlefield.

It was an easy victory for great Shri Krishna. Narakasura was killed by Goddess Satyabhama inthe battle.The killing of Narakasura again takes us to the message that it is inevitable for virtue and truth to win over vice and evil.

Thye legend says, in the cosmic battle between the gods and the demons when both churned the ocean for ‘amrit’ or divine nectar, Dhanavantri – the physician of the gods and an incarnation of Vishnu – emerged carrying a pot of the elixir. So, according to this mythological tale, the word Dhanteras comes from the name Vaidya Raj Bhagvaan Dhanavantri, the divine doctor.

Story of Prince & Yama God of Death
An interesting story about Dhanteras Festival says that once the sixteen year old son of King Hima was doomed to die by a snake-bite on the fourth day of his marriage as per his horoscope. On that particular fourth day of his marriage his young wife did not allow him to sleep. She laid all the ornaments and lots of silver coins in a big heap at the entrance of her husband’s boudoir and lighted innumerable lamps all over the place. And she went on telling stories and singing songs.
When Yama, the god of Death arrived there in the guise of a Serpent his eyes got blinded by that dazzle of those brilliant lights and he could not enter the Prince’s chamber. So he climbed on top of the heap of the ornaments and coins and sat there whole night listening to the melodious songs. In the morning he quietly went away. Thus the young wife saved her husband from the clutches of death. Since then this day of Dhanteras came to be known as the day of “Yamadeepdaan” and lamps are kept burning throughout the night in reverential adoration to Yama, the god of Death.

Vijaya dashmi

To Ashram.org

Vijayadashami  is one of the most great & holiest Hindu festival celebrated on the tenth day of the Hindu autumn lunar month of Ashvin, or Ashwayuja which falls in September or October of the Western calendar, from the Shukla Paksha Pratipada, or the day after the new moon which falls in Bhadrapada, to the Dashami, or the tenth day of Ashvin. The first nine days are celebrated as Maha Navratri(Sanskrit: नवरात्रि, ‘nine nights’) or Sharada Navratri {the most important Navratri) and culminates on the tenth day as Vijaya dashami

Vijyadashmi 13th Oct’ 2013

विजयादशमी का दिन बहुत महत्त्व का है और इस दिन सूर्यास्त के पूर्व से लेकर तारे निकलने तक का समय अर्थात् संध्या का समय बहुत उपयोगी है। रघु राजा ने इसी समय कुबेर पर चढ़ाई करने का संकेत कर दिया था कि ‘सोने की मुहरों की वृष्टि करो या तो फिर युद्ध करो।’ रामचन्द्रजी रावण के साथ युद्ध में इसी दिन विजयी हुए। ऐसे ही इस विजयादशमी के दिन अपने मन में जो रावण के विचार हैं काम, क्रोध, लोभ, मोह, भय, शोक, चिंता – इन अंदर के शत्रुओं को जीतना है और रोग, अशांति जैसे बाहर के शत्रुओं पर भी विजय पानी है। दशहरा यह खबर देता है।..

Vijaya Dashmi is a divine festival.

All  the hindu festivals are important in their own way, but Vijaya Dashmi or Dussehra is unique in that it points towards the over all development in life. Though a series of festivals follows Dussehra, it is the festival of Dussehra that marks the beginning of a person’s all round development.

Dussehra or Vijayadashmi reminds us that one who indulges the ten senses in the objects of the world and seeks enjoyment therefrom loses the battle of life like Ravana.

The wise one, who restrains his ten senses and reposes in his True Self, and also leads others towards Self Bliss, emerges victorious like Lord Rama, and attains the Immortal state as well.

One who moves towards the Eternal, experiences inner peace, inner light and contentment like Lord Rama. But the one, who forgoes the eternal and seeks happiness from the impermanent, meets Ravana’s fate. To drive this principle home, and to rid us of the attraction towards the impermanent, is the objective of burning Ravana’s effigy on every Dussehra.

The body is transient, wealth is not eternal, and we are steadily heading towards death with each passing day. Our only duty is to garner the wealth of dharma; and for that purpose human birth alone is suitable.

Life is an art and one who doesn’t know the art of living fails to know the art of dying as well. He dies and is re-born again and again. One who knows the art of living, his life unites him with the Bestower of life, and death merges him with the deathless Lord. Life is a celebration, a song, and a melody. Live life in a way that would illuminate life, and die as would exude fragrance…it is for this very purpose that you have come to this world.

You have not come to rot in this world. You have not come to give birth to a few sons and daughters, become a mother-in-law, grandmother or grandfather, and then die in the end. You have come to experience, before death comes, your Eternal Self, Whom even death can’t touch; and Dussehra inspires you towards this goal.

The war between Ramji and Ravana is over, but the war between the Rama-attitude and Ravana-attitude within us continues. Lest the jiva is defeated in the war, Tulsidasji guides us, saying –

Pure discrimination does not arise without the compassionate Grace of God or the Sadguru.
Without the Grace of the Sadguru, without Satsang, one remains bereft of the insightful discrimination that provides answers to questions like, “Where lies real happiness? For what purpose have we been endowed with human life?”, etc. Without the Sadguru’s benign Grace, the jiva has been wandering in search of peace and bliss not for a couple of days or years or lives, but for ages together, with no idea about the right source of true peace and bliss. It therefore needs to avail itself of the Sadguru’s company and Satsang.
The company of saints equips one with the insight as to what should be done, and what should not be done, what brings excellence to life and what needs to be done before death strikes. Once you have known all this, you have truly benefited from the holy company of saints and accomplished the very goal of human life.

The craving for sense enjoyments takes one on the path of Ravana, while the techniques imparted by the Saints fill one’s life with inner bliss. And sooner or later, the jiva realizes its True Self, which is the true goal of human life.

Dasha-Hara is the festival of Victory of Good over Evil.

Jai maa durga

Victory of Durga Mata over Mahishasura
Some of the demons, or Asuras, were very powerful and ambitious and continually tried to defeat the Devas, or Gods , and capture Heaven. One Asura, Mahishasura, in the form of a buffalo, grew very powerful and created havoc on the earth. Under his leadership, the Asuras defeated the Devas. The world was crushed under Mahishasura’s tyranny, the Devas joined their energies into Shakti, a single mass of incandescent energy, to kill Mahishasura.
A very powerful band of lightning emerged from the mouths of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva and a young, beautiful female virgin with ten hands appeared. All the Gods gave their special weapons to her. This Shakti coalesced to form the goddess Durga. Riding on a lion, who assisted her, Durga fought Mahishasura. The battle raged for nine days and nights. Finally on the tenth day of Ashvin shukla paksha, Mahishasura was defeated and killed by MaaDurga.
Hence Dasha-Hara is also known as Navratri or Durgotsav and is a celebration of MaaDurga’s victory. Devi Durga, as Consort of Lord Shiva, represents two forms of female energy – one mild and protective and the other fierce and destructive.

Homecoming of Durga Maata
Daksha, the Lord of the Earth, and his wife Menaka, had a daughter called Sati. As a child, Sati started worshipping Lord Shiva as her would-be-husband. Lord Shiva was pleased with the Sati’s worship of him and married her. Daksha was against their marriage but could not prevent it. Daksha arranged a yagna to which everyone except Lord Shiva was invited. Sati, feeling ashamed of her father’s behaviour and shocked by the attitude meted towards her husband, sacrified herself in the holy fire. Lord Shiva was anguished when he discovered this. He lifted Sati’s body on his shoulders and started dancing madly. As the supreme power was dancing with wrath, the world was on the verge of destruction.
Then Lord Narayana came forward as a saviour and used his Chakra to cut Sati’s body into pieces. Those pieces fell from the shoulders of the dancing Shiva and scattered throughout the world. Shiva was pacified when the last piece fell from his shoulder. Lord Narayana revived Sati. The places where the pieces of Sati fell are known as the “Shakti Piths” or energy pits. Kalighat in Kolkata, Kamakshya near Guwahati and Vaishnav Devi in Jammu are three of these places.
In her next birth, Sati was born as Parvati or Shaila-Putri (First form of Durga), the daughter of Himalaya. Lord Narayana asked Shiva to forgive Daksha. Ever since, peace was restored and Durga Adi Shakti with her children Saraswati, Lakshmi, Kartikeya, Ganesh and her two sakhis – Jaya and Vijaya visit her parents each year during the season of Sharatkal or autumn, when Durga-Puja is celebrated.

End of Agnyatawas of Pandavas
In the age of Dvapara Yuga, Pandavas – the five acknowledged sons of Pandu (Sanskrit: पांडु), by his two wives Kunti and Madri – lost to Kauravas in a game of dice, and both spent twelve years of Vanawas, or exile to the forest, followed by one year of Agnyatawas. The brothers hid their weapons in a hole in a Shami tree before entering the Kingdom of Virat to complete the final year of Agnyatawas. After that year, on Vijayadashmi, they recovered the weapons, declared their true identities and defeated Kauravas, who had attacked King Virat to steal his cattle. Since that day, Shami trees and weapons have been worshipped and the exchange of Shami leaves on Vijayadashmi has been a symbol of good will and victory. This is also called Shami/Jammi Puja.

Devotees perform “Aditya Homa” as a “Shanti Yagna” and recite Sundara Kanda of Srimad Ramayana for nine days. These Yagna performances are thought to create powerful agents in the atmosphere surrounding the house that will keep the household environment clean and healthy. These rituals are intended to rid the household of the ten bad qualities, which are represented by ten heads of Ravana as follows:

Kama (Lust)
Krodha (Anger)
Moha (delusion)
Lobha (Greed)
Mada (Over Pride)
Matsara (Jealousy)
Manas (Mind)
Buddhi (Intellect)
Chitta (will)
Ahankara (Ego).

Some householders perform Yagnas thrice daily along with Sandhya Vandana, which is also called Aahavaneeya Agni, Grahapatya Agni or Dakshina Agni. In addition, the Aditya Homa is performed with the Maha Surya Mantras and the Aruna Prapathaka of the Yajurveda. These mantras are believed to keep the heart, brain and digestive functions in balance in the absence of adequate sunlight in the winter months.

The ceremony of Vidyarambham (Vidya means “knowledge” , arambham means “beginning’), a Hindu tradition where children between two and three years old are formally initiated, is held on Vijayadashami.
The last three days of the Navaratri festival, i.e. Ashtami, Navami, and Dashami are celebrated as Sarasvati Puja. The celebrations start with the Puja Veypu (Placing for Worship). It consists of placing the books for Pooja on the Ashtami day. It may be in one’s own house, in the local Nursery School run by traditional teachers, or in the local temple. The books will be taken out for reading, after worship, only on the morning of the third day (Vijaya Dashami). It is called Puja Eduppu (Taking from Puja). Children are happy since they are not expected to study on these days. On the Vijaya Dashami day, Kerala celebrates the Ezhuthiniruthu or Initiation of Writing for the little children before they are admitted to nursery schools. This is also called Vidyarambham. The child is made to write for the first time on the rice spread in a plate with the index finger, guided by an elder of the family or by a reputed teacher. The little ones will have to write “Hari Shri Ganapataye Namah” and recite the same to mark the auspicious entry in to the world of education. This is considered a memorable event in the life of a person. Ayudha Puja is also conducted during this period.

Vat savitri Purnima

the story of savitri satyavan

to ashram.org

Vat purnima or vatt savitri vrat (Vatapourṇimā) is a vowed religious observance performed by married women on the full moon day (pourṇimā) of the Hindu lunar month, Jyeshtha, to prolong their wifehood. Deity Brahmā along with Saraswatī Devī are the main Deities while Satyawan, Savitri,Narad and Deity Yama are the subordinate Deities in this vowed religious observance (vrat).

Among the famous, chaste women (pativratas) of India, Savitri is considered the ideal. She is also considered the symbol of eternal wifehood.

satyavan savitri

When Deity Yama took Satyawan’s (her husband’s) life, Savitri debated with Him for three days. Appeased with her knowledge of the scriptures and her selfless determination, Deity Yama brought Satyawan back to life. The debate took place under a banyan (vata) tree.

Hence the banyan tree is associated with Savitri. Women began this vowed religious observance for the longevity of their husbands

. The banyan tree ( vata vriksha), fig (pimpal), Holy fig (oudumbar) and shami trees are considered sacred and are used in sacrificial fires (yadnyas). Among all these trees, the life of the banyan tree, is the longest. It also spreads extensively by the means of its aerial roots.

Women ritualistically worship the Deities Brahmā and Saraswatī residing in the banyan tree and make prayers like, ‘Please bestow health, longevity, wealth and progeny upon my husband and I. May our family grow and become prosperous.’

21th June : Dakshinayan (Punyakal : Sunrise to 10.35 am)

hindu gods and goddessses @ omshivam.wordpress.com

Dakshinayanam :- The Night of Gods

The smallest Unit of time is 11 nimesha. Fifteen nimeshas make one kashtha. thirty kashthas are one kala and thirty kalas constitute one muhurta. There are thirty muhurtas in a span of day and night (ahoratra). Thirty such ahoratras make up a month. There are two pakshas (fornight) in every month. Six months constitute an ayana and two ayanas a year. There are thus twelve months in every year. The names of the two ayanas are Uttarayana and Dakshinayana.
While humans pass through uttarayana, the gods pass through only one day. Similarly. when humans pass through dakshinayana, the gods pass through merely one night. One year for humans is equivalent to a time span of one day and one night for the gods.
Twelve thousand years of the gods make up one mahayuga. This is subdivided into four yugas (eras). The names of these eras are Satya yuga or Krita yuga, Treta yuga, Dvapara yuga and Kali yuga. Satya yuga has four thousand years, treta yuga three thousand, dvapara yuga two thousand and kait yuga one thousand. This adds up to ten thousand years. But there are also periods that join two yugas: (sandhyamsha).

Satya yuga has a sandhyamsha of four hundred years, treta yuga of three hundred, dvapara yuga of two hundred and kali yuga of one hundred. There will therefore be seven hundred additional years between satya yuga and treta yuga, five hundred between treta yuga and dvapara yuga, three hundred between dvapara yuga and kali yuga and five hundred between kali yuga and the next satya yuga. These are two thousand additional years, and when added up to the earlier figure of ten thousand, make up twelve thousand years.
There are a little over seventy-one manvantaras (eras) in each mahayuga. Each manvantara is a time period that is ruled over by a Manu. The first Manu in the present kalpa (cycle) was Svayambhuva Manu and there were several other Manus after him. Each kalpa in fact passes during one of Brahma’s days and there are fourteen manvantaras in a kalpa. Stated differently, there are one thousand mahayugas in every kalpa.
Three hundred and sixty kalpas constitute one of Brahma’s years. One hundred times this time period is known as a parardha. At the end of this period. the whole universe is destroyed and Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva are also destroyed. At the end of the destruction, creation starts afresh and this creation is known as sarga.
There is a smaller process of destruction that takes place at the end of every kalpa. Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva are not destroyed, but everything else is. The creation that comes at the end of this minor destruction is known as pratisarga.
The present kalpa is known as varaha kalpa. The one that preceded it was known as padma kalpa.
-Excerpts from Kurma Purana

The angular distance of a heavenly body from the celestial equator will be either negative if the planet is above the northern hemisphere, or positive, in case the planet is above the southern hemisphere. This is also commonly known as a declination or Ayana. Thus the Sun’s yearly movement is divided into two parts, called Uttarayana and Dakshinayana. The earth’s equator is tilted 23.45 degrees with respect to the plane of the earth’s orbit around the sun, so at various times during the year, as the earth orbits the sun, declination varies from 23.45 degrees north to 23.45 degrees south. This gives rise to the seasons. Around December 21, the northern hemisphere of the earth is tilted 23.45 degrees away from the sun, which is the winter solstice for the northern hemisphere and the summer solstice for the southern hemisphere. Around June 21, the southern hemisphere is tilted 23.45 degrees away from the sun, which is the summer solstice for the northern hemisphere and winter solstice for the southern hemisphere. On March 21 and September 21 are the fall and spring equinoxes when the sun is passing directly over the equator. Note that the tropics of cancer and capricorn mark the maximum declination of the sun in each hemisphere. Each Ayana has three seasons.

The accurate method of knowing when uttarayana or dakshinayana starts is to calculate highest northan and southern declination of the sun. The dates mentioned below in 1 are based on this method. The other method of knowing dakshinaayana is when nirayana surya enters cancers, and uttaraayana starts when nirayana surya enters Capricorn. Actual Ayanagati may not be observed exactly using this method. Most drika panchanga makers donot follow this method. Please remember right now ayanamsha is increasing every year by 50 seconds. Due to this our ritus should shift. But they are not shifting. If we follow nirayana method after some years you’ll wrongly mention winter ritu in summer and summer ritu in winter. That is very much inaccurate. The ritu follow declination not nirayana surya.

1. Drika Siddhanta:
Dakshinayana starts when sayana sun enters cancers, and uttaraayana starts when sayana surya enters Capricorn. We need to use sayana surya in order to observe surya’s ayana gati.

2. Drika Siddhanta and Nirayana System
Dakshinaaya starts when nirayana surya enters cancers, and uttaraayana starts when nirayana surya enters Capricorn. Actual Ayanagati may not be observed exactly using this method.

Among these two system ,Which one to use is the personal choice. Some people follow 1 and some follow 2. However sankranti decision is always done using 2 method. It’s just Ayana gati and Ritu they donot follow ayanamsha. Sun’s Ayana gati is always tropical. Ritus always follow tropical sun, not nirayana sun. However, some people will always make their panchangam using 2 for Dakshinaayana, Uttarayana and Ritu. Most modern panchangam will follow method 1.

Dakshinayana or Pitrayana is the nighttime of gods in Hinduism and it lasts for six months or till Makar Sankranti. Uttarayana period starts with Makar Sankranti and it is the daytime of Devas. A human year is equal to one day of gods in Hindu religion.

Reading & Listening Srimad Maha Bhagvatham is extremly beneficial during Dakshinayan

ॐ नमो: नारायणाय |

Uttrayana: The holy morning of Gods

my great guruji

to ashram

Adi deva namastubhyam Praseeddha mama bhashkara
Diwakara namastubhyamm prabhaakara namostute

Salutations to the ancient one O’primal god i bow to you,,
first of all devas the one who creates the morning.
,Oh creator of light, the one who shines from himself

11

On the day of Makar-sankranti, the chariot of the Sun-god enters the Makar-rashi (one of the zodiacs). The process of entering a new sign of zodiac occurs every month, but since the Sun enters the makar-rashi in this month, thus a distinguishing meritorious period is generated. During this span, the sattvaguna (quality of goodness) is specially enhanced and the elements increasing the resistance towards diseases are acquired.

on this holy day of Uttrayana

the gates of the heven are opened as the begining of new day of (Gods) devas

This whole month is considered a festival month.

On the other days, the merit of bathing in the Ganges is obtained only when we actually take a dip in it, but during the Magh month, the effect of Sun-rays is such that the waters of all the water-reservoirs on earth are considered as pure and beneficial as Pavitra Gangajal.

Japaakusuma Samkaasham kaashyapeyam Mahadhyuthim !
Tamorim Sarva Paapagni Pranathosmi Divaakaram !!

[I bow down to the Sun god, who is the cause of the day-break, who dispels all darkness, who destrorys all sins, who is matchless in brilliance, who is the son of Kashyapa and who is as red as the Japa Kusuma Flower]

देवताओं का प्रभातकालःउत्तरायण
(उत्तरायण पर्वः 14 जनवरी)

jai guru dev

(पूज्य बापू जी के सत्संग प्रवचन से)

Think Positve , start thinking postive & good on this holy day itself whenu wakeup ,be come glorious as Surya

उत्तरायण पर्व के दिवस से सूर्य दक्षिण से उत्तर की ओर चलता है। उत्तरायण से रात्रियाँ छोटी होने लगती हैं, दिन बड़े होने लगते हैं. अंधकार कम होने लगता है और प्रकाश बढ़ने लगता है।

जैसे कर्म होते हैं, जैसा चिंतन होता है, चिंतन के संस्कार होते हैं वैसी गति होती है, इसलिए उन्नत कर्म करो, उन्नत संग करो, उन्नत चिंतन करो। उन्नत चिंतन, उत्तरायण हो चाहे दक्षिणायण हो, आपको उन्नत करेगा।

इस दिन भगवान सूर्यनारायण का मानसिक ध्यान करना चाहिए और उनसे प्रार्थना करनी चाहिए कि हमें क्रोध से, काम विकारों से चिंताओं से मुक्त करके आत्मशान्ति पाने में गुरू की कृपा पचाने में मदद करें। इस दिन सूर्यनारायण के नामों का जप, उन्हें अर्घ्य-अर्पण और विशिष्ट मंत्र के द्वारा उनका स्तवन किया जाय तो सारे अनिष्ट नष्ट हो जाएंगे, वर्ष भर के पुण्यलाभ प्राप्त होंगे।

Om Hrram Hreem Saha Suryaya Namaha

Chant this holy & divina Mantra on this pious & asupicious holy day of Makar Sankranti as Namskar Mantra, & pray to Lord Surya Narayana to bless us with good health & protection

ॐ ह्रां ह्रीं सः सूर्याय नमः ।

इस मंत्र से सूर्यनारायण की वंदना कर लेना, उनका चिंतन करके प्रणाम कर लेना। इससे सूर्यनारायण प्रसन्न होंगे, नीरोगता देंगे और अनिष्ट से भी रक्षा करेंगे। रोग तथा अनिष्ट का भय फिर आपको नहीं सताएगा। ॐ ह्रां ह्रीं सः सूर्याय नमः । जपते जाओ और मन ही मन सूर्यनारायण का ध्यान करते जाओ, नमन करो।

ॐ सूर्याय नमः ।

मकर राशि में प्रवेश करने वाले भगवान भास्कर को हम नमन करते हैं। मन ही मन उनका ध्यान करते हैं। बुद्धि में सत्त्वगुण, ओज़ और शरीर में आरोग्य देनेवाले सूर्यनारायण को नमस्कार करते हैं।

नमस्ते देवदेवेश सहस्रकिरणोज्जवल।
लोकदीप नमस्तेsस्तु नमस्ते कोणवल्लभ।।
भास्कराय नमो नित्यं खखोल्काय नमो नमः।
विष्णवे कालचक्राय सोमायामातितेजसे।।

हे देवदेवेश! आप सहस्र किरणों से प्रकाशमान हैं। हे कोणवल्लभ! आप संसार के लिए दीपक हैं, आपको हमारा नमस्कार है। विष्णु, कालचक्र, अमित तेजस्वी, सोम आदि नामों से सुशोभित एवं अंतरिक्ष में स्थित होकर सम्पूर्ण विश्व को प्रकाशित करने वाले आप भगवान भास्कर को हमारा नमस्कार है।

(भविष्य पुराण, ब्राह्म पर्वः 153.50.51)

उत्तरायण के दिन भगवान सूर्यनारायण के इन नामों का जप विशेष हितकारी है। ॐ मित्राय नमः। ॐ रवये नमः। ॐ सूर्याय नमः। ॐ भानवे नमः। ॐ खगाय नमः। ॐ पूष्णे नमः। ॐ हिरण्यगर्भाय नमः। ॐ मरीचये नमः। ॐ आदित्याय नमः। ॐ सवित्रे नमः। ॐ अर्काय नमः। ॐ भास्कराय नमः। ॐ सवितृ सूर्यनारायणाय नमः।

उत्तरायण देवताओं का प्रभातकाल है। इस दिन तिल के उबटन व तिलमिश्रत जल से स्नान, तिलमिश्रित जल का पान, तिल का हवन, तिल का भोजन तथा तिल का दान सभी पापनाशक प्रयोग हैं।

उत्तरायण का पर्व पुण्य-अर्जन का दिवस है। उत्तरायण का सारा दिन पुण्यमय दिवस है, जो भी करोगे कई गुणा पुण्य हो जाएगा। मौन रखना, जप करना, भोजन आदि का संयम रखना और भगवत्-प्रसाद को पाने का संकल्प करके भगवान को जैसे भीष्म जी कहते हैं कि हे नाथ! मैं तुम्हारी शरण में हूँ। हे अच्युत! हे केशव! हे सर्वेश्वर! हे परमेश्वर! हे विश्वेश्वर! मेरी बुद्धि आप में विलय हो। ऐसे ही प्रार्थना करते-करते, जप करते-करते मन-बुद्धि को उस सर्वेश्वर में विलय कर देना। इन्द्रियाँ मन को सँसार की तरफ खीँचती हैं और मन बुद्धि को घटाकर भटका देता है। बुद्धि में अगर भगवद्-जप, भगवद्-ध्यान, भगवद्-पुकार नहीं है तो बुद्धि बेचारी मन के पीछे-पीछे चलकर भटकाने वाली बन जाएगी। बुद्धि में अगर बुद्धिदात की प्रार्थना, उपासना का बल है तो बुद्धि ठीक परिणाम का विचार करेगी कि यह खा लिया तो क्या हो जाएगा? यह इच्छा करूँ-वह इच्छा करूँ, आखिर क्या? – ऐसा करते-करते बुद्धि मन की दासी नहीं बनेगी। ततः किं ततः किम् ? – ऐसा प्रश्न करके बुद्धि को बलवान बनाओ तो मन के संकल्प-विकल्प कम हो जाएंगे, मन को आराम मिलेगा, बुद्धि को आराम मिलेगा।
