    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.

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 swastik 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।


Dhan tryodashi The first day of Deewali
Diwali also spelled Devali or Deepavali, popularly known as the “festival of lights”, is an important festival in Hinduism,
Legends


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.

According to Srimad Bhagvad Maha Puraan when the gods and demons churned the ocean for Amrit or nectar, Dhanvantari (the physician of the gods and an incarnation of Vishnu) emerged carrying a jar of the elixir on the day of Dhanteras.

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.’

The second day of Shukla Paksh, the bright forthnight of Kartik is called Bhaiyaduj. There are various names of this Hindu festival. Known by the name of bhai-dooj  Bhai Tika Bhathru Dwithiya Bhatri Ditya yamadwitheya

The festival of Bhai Dooj has a mythological background.

the story of
Yamuna the river Goddess

Sri Yamuna Ji

In various old temples of Northern India,  River GoddessYamuna is shown on her tortoise, a symbol associated with creation in the Vedas. Even today tortoises can be found on the banks of the Yamuna

Story of Brother Yama & dear Sister Yamuna

Yamuna is next only to the Ganga in her sacredness, for the Hindus. According to legend, Yamuna was a great favourite daughter of her father Surya, the Sun god. Her mother Sanjna or Samjana or Sandhya could not bear to look at her bright and dazzling husband. As she looked upon him with “samyama” (meaning restraint in Sanskrit) their son was called Yama. In spite of Surya asking her to keep her eyes open in his presence, they sometimes flickered, and so the daughter was called Yamuna.

.

After the children were born, Samjna left her sister Chaaya (shadow) in her place pretending to be her, and returned to her parents’ home as she could not bear the Sun’s intense brightness. Once Chaaya bore children, she was not very compassionate towards Samjna’s children. One day, Yama, unable to tolerate Chaya’s cruelty any longer, stamped her foot hard. Enraged by this, Chaya cursed that him to lose his foot. Yamuna his beloved sister could not bear this injustice. She came to Earth and prayed for the curse to be revoked.

Yama Raja, the Hindu God of Death, visited his twin-sister Yami on the Ditya Day after a long period of separation. Yami gave a warm welcome to his brother. This she did by applying tilak on Yama’s forehead. She performed arti on him and treated him with a very delicious meal. Yama was highly pleased with the welcome meted out to him. He proclaimed that brothers who share a meal with their sisters on the auspicious ‘Dooj’ day will never face trouble in their lives. The tradition continues even today. Bhatri Ditya is religiously carried out by brothers and sisters in India. Brothers take bath in the Yamuna river and visit their sisters place for the Bhatri Ditya ceremony.

In memory of this profound love between brother and sister, bhai dooj is celebrated in various parts of the country. Sisters pray for their brothers to have a long life and brothers vow to look after and protect their sisters. This is when the “rakhi” is also tied.

According to popular legend in Hindu mythology, after slaying the evil demon Narkasur, Lord Krishna visited his sister Subhadra who gave him a warm welcome with sweets and flowers. She also affectionately adorned a tilak on Krishna’s forehead with due respect and love. Some believe this to be the origin of the festival. The auspicious celebrations of Bhai dooj reflects the rich cultural traditions of different region of India. Besides, this as this festival brings the whole family together bringing in prosperity, well being and luck, this festival is considered highly significant.

All the rituals and pooja held on Bhai Dooj is carried out in a festive pooja room or platform that is basically decorated for Diwali pooja. Sisters adorn their pooja thali with sumptuous sweets, mouth-watering ‘batashas’, roli and rice along with the coconut. Igniting the pooja lamp they perform all the rituals that involves applying a tikka made of sandalwood paste accompanied with lawn turf (dubbo) and holi chawal. After applying tikka, the sister pampers her brother with delectable eatables along with the sweets, coconut etc. In return, the brother gratifies his dear sisters with a wide variety of gifts

There are various distinct ways in which this beautiful festival is solemnized. But the features that are common in all rituals is the act of smearing a tilak of roli (vermilion), kesar (saffron) and rice on the brother’s forehead by their sister as a mark of their love and protection.

Bhai Dooj festival is also known by the name of Yamadwitheya. We all know that this festival celebrates the beauty of the eternal bond of love and affection between a brother and a sister. The festival is the last day of the diwali celebrations. This falls on the second day after Diwali and the next day after new moon night. Dhanatrayodashi, Narakchaturdashi, Amavasya (Laxmi Pujan), Balipratipada and Yamadvitiya also called Bhai Dooj are the five days which comprise Diwali. Each day is associated with a religious significance.

Yamadwitheya Legend
One of the most commonly told legend of Bhai Dooj is the tale of Yamaraj, the Hindu mythological god of Death. The reason why the festival is also know as Yamadwitheya is from the legend of god Yama Raja himself. Story says that Yamaraj met his twin-sister Yami or Yamuna after a long period of separation. The day was ‘Dwitheya’ or ‘Dooj Day’ (second day after new moon). When Yami saw her brother after a long period of time, she was very happy and she welcomed Dharam Raj (another name for Yama) wholeheartedly. She applied red tilak on his brother’s forehead and treated him a sumptuous meal. Yamaraj was very happy receiving such a warm reception from his sister. It was due to this he announced that whosoever receives a teeka from his sister on the day of ‘Dooj’ will not be hurled to hell. Hence the day is also referred as Yamadwitheya.

Yamadwitheya Ceremony
Just as Yamaraj and his sister Yami met on that auspicious day, even today brothers, visit their sister on the ‘Dwithiya Day’ and have a meal with her. The custom is called ‘Bhagini Hastha Bhojanam’, which means ‘Having meal by the hands of the sister’. It is a ritual to worship Lord Yama and his record keeper, Chithragupta on this day. Many people consider it important to take a bath in the river Yamuna on this festival. Early in the morning, after taking bath and offering prayer to God, sisters perform arti of their brothers. They apply red teeka made of sindoor, chandan and kesar and give them a sweet to eat. While performing these rituals sisters also pray for their brothers long, healthy and prosperous life. Brothers in turn bless their sisters and as a token of love present them with gifts or some cash.

Yamadwitheya Celebration
Yamadwitheya of Bhai Dooj is quite a popular festival amongst Hindus in India. With full gusto, the festival is celebrated. Brothers and sisters have a get together on Yamadwitheya and strengthen their relationship, sharing childhood memories of togetherness. Gifts are exchanged as a token of love. In a complete harmonious environment, the best of festive food is relished.

Another name of this famous Hindu festival of Bhai Dooj Bhaiyya Dooj is Bhatri Ditya. To strengthen the  pure love & beautiful bond shared between a brother and a sister, the festival Bhatri Ditya is celebrated. This is considered a part of Diwali celebrations. It is the the last day of overall Diwali celebrations in the Hindu month of Kartik, which is usually the month of October or November. ‘Ditya’ in the term ‘Bhatri Ditya’ implies that the festival falls on the second day after new moon. ‘Bhatri’ means brother. Sisters pray for their brothers’ long and happy life on this day and there is a spirit of harmony and bonhomie in the entire family because it is a kind of family get together on the auspicious occasion.

The Wealth-Giving Kojagar Fast
(Sharad/Kojagari Purnima)
The Kojagar vrata falls on the full moon day of the month of Aashwina. One should take a bath in the appropriate manner, observe a fast and maintain complete continence on this day. If one can afford it, a gold-idol of Goddess Laxmi, adorned in proper clothing, should be installed on an earthen or copper pitcher and then worshipped in the manner prescribed by the scriptures. In the evening, after moonrise, one should light one hundred gold, silver or earthen lamps using ghee. Then one should prepare plenty of Khir mixed with ghee and sugar. The Khir should be poured into several vessels and exposed to the moonlight. After exposing the Khir to the moonlight for three hours, one should offer it to Goddess Laxmi. Then the Khir should be served with due reverence to pious Brahmins. One should remain awake that night engaged in singing devotional songs and other auspicious activities. In the morning one should take a bath and offer the gold-idol of Goddess Laxmi to a preceptor.
On this day Goddess Laxmi moves around the world at midnight, with boons and assurance of protection, resolving, ?Who is awake on earth? I will grant wealth to one who is awake worshiping me at this hour.?
This vrata is observed every year and it pleases Goddess Laxmi immensely. Propitiated with this fast, Goddess Laxmi grants one prosperity in this world and a supremely elevated state in the next.
-(Narada Purana)

Medical Significance:

It is considered that the Moon and the Earth are at a closer distance on Sharad Poornima night. Due to this, the rays of the moon have several curative properties. Keeping food under the moonlight nourishes both the body and the soul. Following are some health tips which we all can benefit from during Sharad Poornima.

त्रिफला रसायन कल्प
सर्व नेत्ररोगनिवारक, मेधा व दृष्टिवर्धक

त्रिफला रसायन कल्प त्रिदोषनाशक, इंद्रिय बलवर्धक विशेषतः नेत्रों के लिए हितकर, वृद्धावस्था को रोकने वाला व मेधाशक्ति बढ़ाने वाला है। इसके सेवन से नेत्रज्योति में आश्चर्यजनक वृद्धि होती है। दृष्टिमाद्य, रतौंधी, मोतियाबिंदु, काँचबिंदु आदि नेत्ररोगों से रक्षा होती है। बाल काले, घने व मजबूत बनते हैं। 40 दिन तक विधियुक्त सेवन करने से स्मृति, बुद्धि, बल व वीर्य में वृद्धि होती है। 60 दिन तक सेवन करने से यह विशेष प्रभाव दिखाता है। जगजाहिर है कि इस प्रयोग से पूज्य बापू जी अदभुत लाभ हुआ है, चश्मा उतर गया है।

विधिः शरदपूर्णिमा की रात को चाँदी के पात्र में 350 ग्राम त्रिफला चूर्ण, 350 ग्राम देसी गाय का घी व 175 ग्राम शुद्ध शहद मिलाकर पात्र को पतले सफेद वस्त्र से ढँक कर रात भर चाँदनी में रखें। दूसरे दिन सुबह इस मिश्रण को काँच अथवा चीनी के पात्र में भर लें। (उपर्युक्त मात्राएँ 40 दिन के प्रयोग के लिए हैं। 60 दिन के प्रयोग के लिए त्रिफला, घी व शहद की मात्राएँ डेढ़ गुनी लें।)

सेवन-विधिः 11 ग्राम मिश्रण सुबह-शाम गुनगुने पानी के साथ लें (बालकों के लिए मात्रा 6 ग्राम)

दिन में केवल एक बार सात्त्विक, सुपाच्य भोजन करें। इन दिनों में भोजन में नमक कम हो तो अच्छा है। साधारण नमक की जगह सेंधा नमक का उपयोग विशेष लाभदायक है। सुबह शाम गाय का दूध ले सकते हैं। दूध व रसायन के सेवन में दो ढाई घंटे का अंतर रखना आवश्यक है। कल्प के दिनों में खट्टे, तले हुए, मिर्च-मसालेयुक्त व पचने में भारी पदार्थों का सेवन निषिद्ध है। इन दिनों में केवल दूध-चावल, दूध-दलिया अथवा दूध-रोटी का सेवन अधिक गुणकारी है।

इस प्रयोग के बाद 40 दिन तक मामरा बादाम का उपयोग विशेष लाभदायी होगा। कल्प के दिनों में नेत्रबिन्दु का प्रयोग अवश्य करें।

The Significance and Ritual of Shraaddha

(Excerpts from Satsang of Pujya Bapuji & Scriptures)
The next life of a jiva is essentially determined by its previous Samskaras. Shraaddha, as such, is performed with the objective that a jiva may attain a better life in its next birth. The ritual, that is carried out with faith, accompanied by recitation of Mantras for satiating the manes, is known as Shraaddha. In this process, ‘Pindadaana’ is made to the manes with ‘Shraddhaa’; hence it is called ‘Shraaddha’. We gratefully perform Shraaddha for the manes who in turn help us circumvent obstacles in our lives.

In the Varaha Purana, Markandeya Rishi has described the ritual of Shraaddha to Gaurmukh Brahmin in the following words:
To Ashram.org

Pitru Paksha (Sanskrit: पितृ पक्ष), also spelt as Pitr paksha or Pitri paksha, (literally “fortnight of the ancestors”) is a 16–lunar day period when Hindus pay homage to their ancestors (Pitrs), especially through food offerings. The period is also known as Pitru Pakshya,

Pitru Paksha is considered by Hindus to be inauspicious, given the death rite performed during the ceremony, known as Shraddha or tarpan. it falls in the Hindu lunar month of Bhadrapada (September–October), beginning with the full moon day (Purnima) that occurs immediately after the Ganesh festival and ending with the new moon day known as Sarvapitri amavasya, Mahalaya amavasya or simply Mahalaya, this period also corresponds to the dark fortnight of the month Ashvin.

Legend
According to Hindu mythology, the souls of three preceding generations of one’s ancestor reside in Pitru–loka, a realm between heaven and earth. This realm is governed by Yama, the god of death, who takes the soul of a dying man from earth to Pitru–loka. When a person of the next generation dies, the first generation shifts to heaven and unites with God, so Shraddha offerings are not given. Thus, only the three generations in Pitru–loka are given Shraddha rites, in which Yama plays a significant role. According to the sacred Hindu epics (Itihasa), at the beginning of Pitru Paksha, the sun enters the zodiac sign of Virgo (Kanya). Coinciding with this moment, it is believed that the spirits leave Pitru–loka and reside in their descendants’ homes for a month until the sun enters the next zodiac—Scorpio (Vrichchhika)—and there is a full moon. Hindus are expected to propitiate the ancestors in the first half, during the dark fortnight.
When the legendary donor Karna died in the epic Mahabharata war, his soul transcended to heaven, where he was offered gold and jewels as food. However, Karna needed real food to eat and asked Indra, the lord of heaven, the reason for serving gold as food. Indra told Karna that he had donated gold all his life, but had never donated food to his ancestors in Shraddha. Karna said that since he was unaware of his ancestors, he never donated anything in their memory. To make amends, Karna was permitted to return to earth for a 16–day period, so that he could perform Shraddha and donate food and water in their memory. This period is now known as Pitru Paksha. In some legends, Yama replaces Indra.

Importance
The performance of Shraddha by a son during Pitru Paksha is regarded as a compulsory by Hindus, to ensure that the soul of the ancestor goes to heaven. In this context, the scripture Garuda Purana says, “there is no salvation for a man without a son”. The scriptures preach that a householder should propitiate ancestors (Pitris), along with the gods (devas), ghosts (bhutas) and guests. The scripture Markandeya Purana says that if the ancestors are content with the shraddhas, they will bestow health, wealth, knowledge and longevity, and ultimately heaven and salvation (moksha) upon the performer.

It is extremely harmful to look at the Moon on Ganesh-Chaturthi. Therefore be very careful not to look at the moon on that night. If it happens to look at the Moon on the night of Ganesh-Chaturthi, then no matter how innocent one is, one will definitely be defamed.
Even Lord Krishna was accused of having stolen the ‘Syamantak Mani’ because of looking at the Moon on this night.However, if you look at the Moon on the nights of that lunar month, the harmful effects caused by seeing the Moon on the 4th lunar night is countered.

In any case, if by mistake you do happen to look at the Moon on this night, read or listen to the episode narrating the theft of the Syamantak Mani as described in the 56th and 57th chapters of the tenth Skanda of the Srimad Bhagawata.Below is the mantra to encounter the effect of Chandra Darshan on Ganesh Chaturthi

Story Of Shri Krishna Behind Gop Ashtami(3rd Nov 2011)
On this day lord Sri Krishna became a qualified cowherd. Before this day, he was a keeper of the calves.
“Thus Sri Krishna, along with His elder brother Balarama, passed the childhood age known as kaumara and stepped into the age of pauganda, from the sixth year up to the tenth. At that time, all the cowherd men conferred and agreed to give those boys who had passed their fifth year charge of the cows in the pasturing ground. Given charge of the cows, Krishna and Balarama traversed Vrindavana, purifying the land with Their lotus footprints.”(ch.15, Krsna-Supreme Personality of Godhead)

It is stated in the Karttika-mahatmya section of the Padma Purana: “The eighth lunar day of the bright fortnight of the month of Karttika is known by authorities as Gopastami. From that day, Lord Vasudeva served as a cowherd, whereas previously He had tended the calves.”
