How to worship Goddess laxmi, Kubera, Yamdeepak and Dhanvantri in Dhanteras on 17th october 2017 at home

As per wiki, Dhana Trayodashi (or Dhanteras or धनत्रयोदशी) is the first day of the Indian Diwali and Nepalese Tihar Festival. The festival is known as “Dhanatrayodashi” or “Dhanvantari Trayodashi”. It is celebrated on the thirteenth lunar day of Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight) in the Vikram Samvat Hindu calendar month of Kartika month.

This day is also celebrated for Lord Dhanvantari (Deity who rules Ayurveda) and worshipped on the occasion of Trayodashi, usually, this day is called Dhanvantari Trayodashi. Dhanvantari is considered to be the teacher of all physicians and the originator of Ayurveda.

‘Dhan’ means wealth and ‘Teras’ refers to the thirteenth day of the moon cycle on the thirteenth day of Kartika Krishna Paksha. On this auspicious day, Goddess Laxmi, Lord Dhanvantri and Lord Kuber are worshipped in sthir Lagna at evening time. Traditionally it is considered as to be good in Hindus to buy gold and silver jewelry or utensils as they are karka for Vaibhav.

If we See background history from our Vedic Scriptures                   (Puranas), root of the Dhanteras belong from the Samudra Manthan, It is believed that on this day, Goddess Lakshmi emerged from the ocean along with other precious treasures and pieces of jewelry, during Churning of Ocean. According to the Bhagwat and Visnu Purana, Lord Dhanvantri also emerged from the sea with the pot of Amrit for distributing it to the Devtas. Lord Dhanvantri is another form of Lord Vishnu and also worshipped on this day along with Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Kuber for the good health, wealth, and wellbeing.

Below are Detailed info on Dhanteras Puja Vidhi and Muharat :

17th October 2017 (Tuesday)


Dhanteras Puja Muhurta = 19:21 to 20:25

Duration = 1 Hour 4 Mins

Pradosh Kaal = 17:51 to 20:25
Vrishabha Kaal = 19:21 to 21:14
Trayodashi Tithi Starts = 00:26 on 17/Oct/2017
Trayodashi Tithi Ends = 00:08 on 18/Oct/2017

According to Drikpanchang, Lakshmi Poojan on Dhanteras should be done during Pradosh Kaal after sunset and approximately lasts for 2 hours and 24 minutes when Sthir Lagna (Fixed Signs) prevails, Sthir means fixed, not movable as in Sthira Lagna goddess Laxmi sits and stays in your home. Today Sthira Lagna will rise after 19:21 (Taurus Lagna), hence this time is the best for Dhanteras Pujan for Laxmi poojan. 

But before that there we need to light 13 or 1 lamp in the house to keep away the evil and let the good light come in in the form of good health and wellbeing with Goddes Laxmi and Dhanvantri.Dhanteras has nothing to do with the wealth,  but It is more about the health and well being of the house, what happens when “Ashta Laxmi” comes in the house with lord Dhanvantri which brings good health, well being and overall happiness for the whole family members. ‘

It Has a deep story, as why we lit lamp on Dhanteras for Lord Yama; 

” This is explained in the story of the prince and his new wife, which is said to have happened on this day centuries ago. The prince, his new wife and the serpent The 16-year-old son of King Hima was predicted to die on his fourth day of marriage – on Dhanteras – by snake bite. 

But instead of dying, on that date his wife decided she would not let him go to sleep. She laid out all her ornaments as well as pots of gold and silver coins at the entrance to their bedroom and lit lots of lamps. 

She told him stories and sang songs to keep him awake that night and when the God of Death, Yama, came disguised as a snake, he was so dazzled by the glittering precious metals and lights that he climbed on top of the coins and listened to the stories instead. By morning, rather than killing the prince, he slithered away silently because he had missed the chance. The prince was saved by his bride after she baffled the snake with her wealth.”

That’s why in Dhanteras first it involves worshipping of Lord Yama with Deep Daan on this day for the protection of one’s family members and loved ones.After worshipping Lord Yama one should Lit 13 earthen Lamps on the honor of Lord Yama in a southern direction with sesame oil outside the house in evening time in pradosh kaal.

The Ultimate Protection of Narayana Kavach

 

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Complete Sanskrit and Hindi Translation of Naryana kavach by Geeta Press Embedded 

The Narayana Kavacham is a prayer dedicated to the Lord Maha-Vishnu for any sort of trouble, either it is seen or unseen. One can immensely benefit by chanting this sacred stotra from any sort of danger, by removing obstacles from their lives.

The Narayana Kavacham occurs in chapter eight of the sixth skandha of Bhagavata Purana. It is an Armour of Lord Mahavishnu to protect ourselves from any sort of enemies.

The Story Begins:

Raja Parikshith, the son of Abhimanyu, asks his teacher, Sage Shuka for a means to protect himself from his enemies. Sage Shuka then teaches him the Narayana Kavacham, which was originally taught by Sage Viswaroopa, the son of Thwashtra, to Indra. It is believed that the soul of the man who reads this Kavacha becomes extremely holy and that anyone who reads this would be protected by Lord Vishnu.Once a time demons have gained enormous strength under the protection of their Guru Shukra acharya. The demi-gods became weak as their king lost the courage to win over demons, at the same time Indra humiliated Guru Brihaspathi and lost the Guru protection. Then the demi-Gods approached sage Viswaroopa for protection.He initiated Indra the great Narayana Kavach as mentioned in Srimad Bhagavata Purana 6th Skanda, 8th chapter. After Reciting and installing Kavach in Hridya, Indra regained his lost strength and tamed the demons.

About Narayana Kavach


Narayana Kavach is a very brief Stotra containing only 42 shlokas. It is to be read once in a day. It takes hardly 10 minutes. First, we have to apply the Lord Vishnu on all parts of our body. This process is called Anga-nyas and kara-nyas.

Source of Narayana Kavach

The text of Narayana Kavach is available in Vyas Srimad Bhagwat Purana, 6th Skanda. You can browse https://prabhupadabooks.com/sb/6/8. This chapter describes how Indra, the King of heaven, was victorious over the soldiers of the demons, and it also describes the shield of the Vishnu mantra.
The Process of Recitation 

 

This chapter describes how Indra, the King of heaven, was victorious over the soldiers of the demons, and it also describes the shield of the Viṣṇu mantra.

To take protection from this shield, one must first touch kuśa grass and wash one’s mouth with ācamana-mantras. One should observe silence and then place the eight-syllable Viṣṇu mantra on the parts of his body and place the twelve-syllable mantra on his hands. The eight-syllable mantra is oṁ namonārāyaṇāya. This mantra should be distributed all over the front and back of the body. The twelve-syllable mantra, which begins with the praṇava, oṁkāra, is oṁ namo bhagavate vāsudevāya.

One syllable should be placed on each of the fingers and should be preceded by the praṇava, oṁkāra. Thereafter, one must chant oṁ viṣṇave namaḥ, which is a six-syllable mantra.

One must progressively place the syllables of the mantra on the heart, the head, between the two eyebrows, on the śikhā and between the eyes, and then one should chant maḥ astrāya phaṭ and with this mantra protect himself from all directions. 


Nādevo devamarcayet: one who has not risen to the level of a deva cannot chant this mantra. According to this direction of the śāstra, one must think himself qualitatively nondifferent from the Supreme.

After finishing this dedication, one must offer a prayer to the eight-armed Lord Viṣṇu, who sits on the shoulders of Garuḍadeva. One also has to think of the fish incarnation, Vāmana, Kūrma, Nṛsiṁha, Varāha. Paraśurāma, Rāmacandra (the elder brother of Lakṣmaṇa). Nara-Nārāyaṇa, Dattātreya (an empowered incarnation), Kapila, Sanat-kumāra, Hayagrīva, Nāradadeva (the incarnation of a devotee). Dhanvantari, Ṛṣabhadeva, Yajña, Balarāma, Vyāsadeva, Buddhadeva and Keśava. 

One should also think of Govinda, the master of Vṛndāvana. and one should think of Nārāyaṇa, the master of the spiritual sky. One should think of Madhusūdana, Tridhāmā, Mādhava, Hṛṣīkeśa, Padmanābha, Janārdana, Dāmodara and Viśveśvara, as well as the Supreme Personality of Godhead Kṛṣṇa Himself.

After offering prayers to the Lord’s personal expansions known as the svāṁśa and śaktyāveśa-avatāras, one should pray to the weapons of Lord Nārāyaṇa, such as the Sudarśana, gadā, śaṅkha, khaḍga and bow.

Astrological Significance Of Narayana kavach
 

Astrologically those having Mercury  lordship of 5th or placed in Lagna, 9th  or 5th house from Natal chart Should regularly recite Narayana Kavach. Those are facing great difficulties in wealth, Job and career related issues they can also recite kavach to get divine protection from  Narayana, as its the only who he sustains or fulfills our mundane desires by sitting in our Kendra bhavas (1st, 4th, 7th and 10th).Kendra Bhavas are the house of Sustenance where lord Vishnu sits for uplifting, nourishment and fullfilling all kind of worldly needs and also shows our mundane desires one can have in his life that one wants to fulfill with the help of Laxmi who sits in Trikona bhavas. So, one having any sort of financial or job-related issues they should recite Narayana kavach daily once a time.

Same is case with the Dharma devta who also helps in fulfilling our mundane desires sitting in 9th house from the Karkamsa in Navamsa chart.

Those having Mercury alone placed in the 9th from the Karkamsa or having Mercury with Moon placed in it, they should also chant Kavach to get divine protection from Narayana for any sort of Mundane difficulties they are facing.

Even same is the case with the those having mercury placed in 8th or having lordship of 8th house placed in any bhava, they should chant Narayana kavach for any sort of miseries they are facing in life, or facing extreme health issues and having fear of un-sudden death or fear from Black magic or unseen enemies.

Even it is applicable for those having the Close influence of Saturn over Mercury or either they having lordship of 8th or placed in the 8th house.

English Translation with  Purport on Narayana Kavach by Srila Prabhupad 

 

The Narayana Kavach Begins:

After explaining this process, Śukadeva Gosvāmī told MahārājaParīkṣit how Viśvarūpa, the brother of Vṛtrāsura, described the glories of the Nārāyaṇa-kavaca to Indra.

King Parīkṣit inquired from Śukadeva Gosvāmī: My lord, kindly explain the Viṣṇu mantra armor that protected King Indra and enabled him to conquer his enemies, along with their carriers, and enjoy the opulence of the three worlds. Please explain to me that Nārāyaṇa armor, by which King Indra achieved success in battle, conquering the enemies who were endeavoring to kill him.

Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī said: King Indra, the leader of the demigods, inquired about the armor known as Nārāyaṇa-kavaca from Viśvarūpa, who was engaged by the demigods as their priest. Please hear Viśvarūpa’s reply with great attention.

TRANSLATION
Viśvarūpa said: If some form of fear arrives, one should first wash his hands and legs clean and then perform ācamana by chanting this mantra: oṁ apavitraḥ pavitro vā sarvāvasthāṁ gato ’pi vā/ yaḥ smaret puṇḍarīkākṣaṁ sa bahyābhyantaraḥ śuciḥ/ śrī-viṣṇu śrī-viṣṇu śrī-viṣṇu. Then one should touch kuśa grass and sit gravely and silently, facing north. When completely purified, one should touch the mantra composed of eight syllables to the eight parts of his body and touch the mantra composed of twelve syllables to his hands. Thus, in the following manner, he should bind himself with the Nārāyaṇa coat of armor. First, while chanting the mantra composed of eight syllables [oṁ namonārāyaṇāya], beginning with the praṇava, the syllable oṁ, one should touch his hands to eight parts of his body, starting with the two feet and progressing systematically to the knees, thighs, abdomen, heart, chest, mouth and head. Then one should chant the mantra in reverse, beginning from the last syllable [ya], while touching the parts of his body in the reverse order. These two processes are known as utpatti-nyāsa and saṁhāra-nyāsa respectively.
TEXT 7

Then one should chant the mantra composed of twelve syllables [oṁ namo bhagavate vāsudevāya]. Preceding each syllable by the oṁkāra, one should place the syllables of the mantra on the tips of his fingers, beginning with the index finger of the right hand and concluding with the index finger of the left. The four remaining syllables should be placed on the joints of the thumbs.

TRANSLATION
One must then chant the mantra of six syllables [oṁviṣṇave namaḥ]. One should place the syllable “oṁ” on his heart, the syllable “vi” on the top of his head, the syllable “ṣa” between his eyebrows, the syllable “ṇa” on his tuft of hair [śikhā], and the syllable “ve” between his eyes. The chanter of the mantra should then place the syllable “na” on all the joints of his body and meditate on the syllable “ma” as being a weapon. He should thus become the perfect personification of the mantra. Thereafter, adding visarga to the final syllable “ma,” he should chant the mantra “maḥ astrāya phaṭ” in all directions, beginning from the east. In this way, all directions will be bound by the protective armor of the mantra.
TEXT 11

TRANSLATION
After finishing this chanting, one should think himself qualitatively one with the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is full in six opulences and is worthy to be meditated upon. Then one should chant the following protective prayer to Lord Nārāyaṇa, the Nārāyaṇa-kavaca.
TEXT 12

TRANSLATION
The Supreme Lord, who sits on the back of the bird Garuḍa, touching him with His lotus feet, holds eight weapons—the conchshell, disc, shield, sword, club, arrows, bow and ropes. May that Supreme Personality of Godhead protect me at all times with His eight arms. He is all-powerful because He fully possesses the eight mystic powers [aṇimā, laghimā, etc.].
PURPORT
Thinking oneself one with the Supreme is called ahaṅgrahopāsanā. Through ahaṅgrahopāsanā one does not become God, but he thinks of himself as qualitatively one with the Supreme. Understanding that as a spirit soul he is equal in quality to the supreme soul the way the water of a river is of the same nature as the water of the sea, one should meditate upon the Supreme Lord, as described in this verse, and seek His protection. The living entities are always subordinate to the Supreme. Consequently their duty is to always seek the mercy of the Lord in order to be protected by Him in all circumstances.
TEXT 13
jaleu mā rakatu matsya-mūrtir

TRANSLATION
May the Lord, who assumes the body of a great fish, protect me in the water from the fierce animals that are associates of the demigod Varuṇa. By expanding His illusory energy, the Lord assumed the form of the dwarf Vāmana. May Vāmana protect me on the land. Since the gigantic form of the Lord, Viśvarūpa, conquers the three worlds, may He protect me in the sky.
PURPORT
This mantra seeks the protection of the Supreme Personality of Godhead in the water, land and sky in His incarnations as the fish, Vāmanadeva and the Viśvarūpa.

TRANSLATION
May Lord Nṛsiṁhadeva, who appeared as the enemy of Hiraṇyakaśipu, protect me in all directions. His loud laughing vibrated in all directions and caused the pregnant wives of the asuras to have miscarriages. May that Lord be kind enough to protect me in difficult places like the forest and battlefront.
TEXT 15

TRANSLATION
The Supreme indestructible Lord is ascertained through the performance of ritualistic sacrifices and is therefore known as Yajñeśvara. In His incarnation as Lord Boar, He raised the planet earth from the water at the bottom of the universe and kept it on His pointed tusks. May that Lord protect me from rogues on the street. May Paraśurāma protect me on the tops of mountains, and may the elder brother of Bharata, Lord Rāmacandra, along with His brother Lakṣmaṇa, protect me in foreign countries.
PURPORT
There are three Rāmas. One Rāma is Paraśurāma (Jāmadāgnya). another Rāma is Lord Rāmacandra, and a third Rāma is Lord Balarāma. In this verse the words rāmo’dri-kūṭeṣv atha indicate Lord Paraśurāma. The brother of Bharata Mahārāja and Lakṣmaṇa is Lord Rāmacandra.

TRANSLATION
May Lord Nārāyaṇa protect me from unnecessarily following false religious systems and falling from my duties due to madness. May the Lord in His appearance as Nara protect me from unnecessary pride. May Lord Dattātreya, the master of all mystic power, protect me from falling while performing bhakti-yoga, and may Lord Kapila, the master of all good qualities, protect me from the material bondage of fruitive activities.
TEXT 17
 
sanat-kumāro ’vatu kāmadevād
dhayaśīrā mā pathi deva-helanāt
devari-varya puruārcanāntarāt

TRANSLATION
May Sanat-kumāra protect me from lusty desires. As I begin some auspicious activity, may Lord Hayagrīva protect me from being an offender by neglecting to offer respectful obeisances to the Supreme Lord. May DevarṣiNārada protect me from committing offenses in worshiping the Deity, and may Lord Kūrma, the tortoise, protect me from falling to the unlimited hellish planets.
PURPORT
Lusty desires are very strong in everyone, and they are the greatest impediment to the discharge of devotional service. Therefore those who are very much influenced by lusty desires are advised to take shelter of Sanat-kumāra, the great brahmacārī devotee.
Nārada Muni, who is the guide for arcana, is the author of the Nārada-pañcarātra, which prescribes the regulative principles for worshiping the Deity. Everyone engaged in Deity worship, whether at home or in the temple, should always seek the mercy of Devarṣi Nārada in order to avoid the thirty-two offenses while worshiping the Deity. These offenses in Deity worship are mentioned in The Nectar of Devotion.
TEXT 18
 
dhanvantarir bhagavān pātv apathyād
dvandvād bhayād ṛṣabho nirjitātmā
yajñaś ca lokād avatāj janāntād
balo gaāt krodha-vaśād ahīndra
 
TRANSLATION
May the Supreme Personality of Godhead in His incarnation as Dhanvantari relieve me from undesirable eatables and protect me from physical illness. May Lord Ṛṣabhadeva, who conquered His inner and outer senses, protect me from fear produced by the duality of heat and cold. May Yajña protect me from defamation and harm from the populace, and may Lord Balarāma as Śeṣa protect me from envious serpents.
PURPORT
To live within this material world, one must face many dangers, as described herein. For example, undesirable food poses a danger to health, and therefore one must give up such food. The Dhanvantari incarnation can protect us in this regard. Since Lord Viṣṇu is the Supersoul of all living entities, if He likes He can save us from adhibhautika disturbances, disturbances from other living entities. Lord Balarāma is the Śeṣa incarnation, and therefore He can save us from angry serpents or envious persons, who are always ready to attack.

dvaipāyano bhagavān aprabodhād
buddhas tu pāaṇḍa-gaa-pramādāt
kalki kale kāla-malāt prapātu
dharmāvanāyoru-ktāvatāra
TRANSLATION
May the Personality of Godhead in His incarnation as Vyāsadeva protect me from all kinds of ignorance resulting from the absence of Vedic knowledge. May Lord Buddhadeva protect me from activities opposed to Vedic principles and from laziness that causes one to madly forget the Vedic principles of knowledge and ritualistic action. May Kalkideva, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who appeared as an incarnation to protect religious principles, protect me from the dirt of the age of Kali.
 
PURPORT
This verse mentions various incarnations of the Supreme Personality of Godhead who appear for various purposes. Śrīla Vyāsadeva, Mahāmuni, compiled the Vedic literature for the benefit of all human society. If one wants to be protected from the reactions of ignorance even in this age of Kali, one may consult the books left by Śrīla Vyāsadeva, Upaniads, Vedānta-sūtra (Brahma-sūtra), Mahābhārata, Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam Mahā-Purāṇa (Vyāsadeva’s commentary on the Brahma-sūtra) and the other seventeen Purāṇas. Only by the mercy of Śrīla Vyāsadeva do we have so many volumes of transcendental knowledge to save us from the clutches of ignorance.
As described by Śrīla Jayadeva Gosvāmī in his Daśāvatāra-stotra, Lord Buddha apparently decried the Vedic knowledge:
 
nindasi yajña-vidher ahaha śruti-jātaṁ
sadaya-hṛdaya-darśita-paśu-ghātam
keśava
 dhṛta-buddha-śarīra jaya jagad-īśa 
hare
 
The mission of Lord Buddha was to save people from the abominable activity of animal killing and to save the poor animals from being unnecessarily killed. When pāṣaṇḍīs were cheating by killing animals on the plea of sacrificing them in Vedic yajñas, the Lord said, “If the Vedic injunctions allow animal killing, I do not accept the Vedic principles.” Thus he actually saved people who acted according to Vedic principles. One should therefore surrender to Lord Buddha so that he can help one avoid misusing the injunctions of the Vedas.
The Kalki avatāra is the fierce incarnation who vanquishes the class of the atheists born in this age of Kali. Now, in the beginning of Kali-yuga, many irreligious principles are in effect, and as Kali-yuga advances, many pseudo religious principles will certainly be introduced, and people will forget the real religious principles enunciated by Lord Kṛṣṇa before the beginning of Kali-yuga, namely principles of surrender unto the lotus feet of the Lord. Unfortunately, because of Kali-yuga, foolish people do not surrender to the lotus feet of Kṛṣṇa. Even most people who claim to belong to the Vedic system of religion are actually opposed to the Vedic principles. Every day they manufacture a new type of dharma on the plea that whatever one manufactures is also a path of liberation. Atheistic men generally say, yata mata tata patha.
According to this view, there are hundreds and thousands of different opinions in human society, and each opinion is a valid religious principle. This philosophy of rascals has killed the religious principles mentioned in the Vedas, and such philosophies will become increasingly influential as Kali-yuga progresses. In the last stage of Kali-yuga, Kalkideva, the fierce incarnation of Keśava, will descend to kill all the atheists and will save only the devotees of the Lord.

TRANSLATION
May Lord Keśava protect me with His club in the first portion of the day, and may Govinda, who is always engaged in playing His flute, protect me in the second portion of the day. May Lord Nārāyaṇa, who is equipped with all potencies, protect me in the third part of the day, and may Lord Viṣṇu, who carries a disc to kill His enemies, protect me in the fourth part of the day.
PURPORT
According to Vedic astronomical calculations, day and night are each divided into thirty ghaṭikās (twenty-four minutes), instead of twelve hours. Generally, each day and each night is divided into six parts consisting of five ghaṭikās. In each of these six portions of the day and night, the Lord may be addressed for protection according to different names. Lord Keśava, the proprietor of the holy place of Mathurā, is the Lord of the first portion of the day, and Govinda, the Lord of Vṛndāvana. is the master of the second portion.

May Lord Madhusūdana, who carries a bow very fearful for the demons, protect me during the fifth part of the day. In the evening, may Lord Mādhava, appearing as Brahmā, Viṣṇu and Maheśvara, protect me, and in the beginning of night may Lord Hṛṣīkeśa protect me. At the dead of night [in the second and third parts of night] may Lord Padmanābha alone protect me.

TRANSLATION
May the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who bears the Śrīvatsa on His chest, protect me after midnight until the sky becomes pinkish. May Lord Janārdana, who carries a sword in His hand, protect me at the end of night [during the last four ghaṭikās of night]. May Lord Dāmodara protect me in the early morning, and may Lord Viśveśvara protect me during the junctions of day and night.

TRANSLATION
Set into motion by the Supreme Personality of Godhead and wandering in all the four directions, the disc of the Supreme Lord has sharp edges as destructive as the fire of devastation at the end of the millennium. As a blazing fire burns dry grass to ashes with the assistance of the breeze, may that Sudarśana cakra burn our enemies to ashes.

O best of conchshells, O Pāñcajanya in the hands of the Lord, you are always filled with the breath of Lord Kṛṣṇa. Therefore you create a fearful sound vibration that causes trembling in the hearts of enemies like the Rākṣasas, pramatha ghosts, Pretas, Mātās, Piśācas and brāhmaṇa ghosts with fearful eyes.

May it protect us from ghosts and the material elements like earth, water, fire and air, and may it also protect us from lightning and our past sins. We are always afraid of these hindrances to our auspicious life. Therefore, may they all be completely destroyed by the chanting of the HareKṛṣṇa mahā-mantra.

TRANSLATION
Lord Garuḍa, the carrier of Lord Viṣṇu, is the most worshipable lord, for he is as powerful as the Supreme Lord Himself. He is the personified Vedas and is worshiped by selected verses. May he protect us from all dangerous conditions, and may Lord Viṣvaksena, the Personality of Godhead, also protect us from all dangers by His holy names.

May the Supreme Personality of Godhead’s holy names, His transcendental forms, His carriers and all the weapons decorating Him as personal associates protect our intelligence, senses, mind and life air from all dangers.
PURPORT
There are various associates of the transcendental Personality of Godhead, and His weapons and carrier are among them. In the spiritual world, nothing is material. The sword, bow, club, disc and everything decorating the personal body of the Lord are spiritual living force. Therefore the Lord is called advaya jñāna, indicating that there is no difference between Him and His names, forms, qualities, weapons and so on. Anything pertaining to Him is in the same category of spiritual existence. They are all engaged in the service of the Lord in varieties of spiritual forms.
TEXT 31

TRANSLATION
The subtle and gross cosmic manifestation is material, but nevertheless it is nondifferent from the Supreme Personality of Godhead because He is ultimately the cause of all causes. Cause and effect are factually one because the cause is present in the effect. Therefore the Absolute Truth, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, can destroy all our dangers by any of His potent parts.

TRANSLATION
The Supreme Personality of Godhead, the living entities, the material energy, the spiritual energy and the entire creation are all individual substances. In the ultimate analysis, however, together they constitute the supreme one, the Personality of Godhead. Therefore those who are advanced in spiritual knowledge see unity in diversity. For such advanced persons, the Lord’s bodily decorations, His name, His fame, His attributes and forms and the weapons in His hand are manifestations of the strength of His potency. According to their elevated spiritual understanding, the omniscient Lord, who manifests various forms, is present everywhere. May He always protect us everywhere from all calamities.
PURPORT
A person highly elevated in spiritual knowledge knows that nothing exists but the Supreme Personality of Godhead. This is also confirmed in Bhagavad-gītā (9.4) where Lord Kṛṣṇa says, mayā tatam idaṁ sarvam, indicating that everything we see is an expansion of His energy. This is confirmed in the Viṣṇu Purāṇa (1.22.52):
ekadeśa-sthitasyāgner
jyotsnā
 vistāriṇī yathā
parasya
 brahmaṇaḥ śaktis
tathedam
 akhilaṁ jagat
 
As a fire, although existing in one place, can expand its light and heat everywhere, so the omnipotent Lord, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, although situated in His spiritual abode, expands Himself everywhere, in both the material and spiritual worlds, by His various energies. Since both cause and effect are the Supreme Lord, there is no difference between cause and effect. Consequently the ornaments and weapons of the Lord, being expansions of His spiritual energy, are not different from Him. There is no difference between the Lord and His variously presented energies. This is also confirmed in the Padma Purāṇa:
nāma cintāmaṇiḥ kṛṣṇ
caitanya-rasa-vigrahaḥ
pūrṇaḥ
 śuddho nitya-mukto
’bhinnatvān
 
nāma-nāminoḥ
The holy name of the Lord is fully identical with the Lord, not partially. The word pūrṇa means “complete.” The Lord is omnipotent and omniscient, and similarly, His name, form, qualities, paraphernalia and everything pertaining to Him are complete, pure, eternal and free from material contamination. The prayer to the ornaments and carriers of the Lord is not false, for they are as good as the Lord. Since the Lord is all-pervasive, He exists in everything, and everything exists in Him. Therefore even worship of the Lord’s weapons or ornaments has the same potency as worship of the Lord. Māyāvādīs refuse to accept the form of the Lord, or they say that the form of the Lord is māyā, or false, but one should note very carefully that this is not acceptable. Although the Lord’s original form and His impersonal expansion are one, the Lord maintains His form, qualities and abode eternally. Therefore this prayer says, pātu sarvaiḥ svarūpair naḥ sadāsarvatra sama-gaḥ: “May the Lord, who is all-pervasive in His various forms, protect us everywhere.” The Lord is always present everywhere by His name, form, qualities, attributes and paraphernalia, and they all have equal power to protect the devotees. Śrīla Madhvācārya explains this as follows:
eka eva paro viṣṇur
bhū
āheti dhvajev ajaḥ
tat-tac-chakti-pradatvena
svayam
 eva vyavasthitaḥ

May Lord Nṛsiṁhadeva, roaring for His devotee Prahlāda Mahārāja, protect us from all fear of dangers created by stalwart leaders in all directions through poison, weapons, water, fire, air and so on.

PURPORT

 

 

 

This mystical mantric armor given by Viśvarūpa to Indra, the King of heaven, acted powerfully, with the effect that Indra was able to conquer the asuras and enjoy the opulence of the three worlds without impediments. In this regard, Madhvācārya points out:
vidyāḥ karmāṇi ca sadā
guroḥ
 prāptāḥ phala-pradāḥ
anyathā
 naiva phaladāḥ
prasannoktā
 phala-pradāḥ
One must receive all kinds of mantras from a bona fide spiritual master; otherwise the mantras will not be fruitful. This is also indicated in Bhagavad-gītā (4.34):
tad viddhi praṇipātena
paripraśnena
 sevayā
upadekṣyanti
 te jñānaṁ
jñāninas
 
tattva-darśinaḥ
“Just try to learn the truth by approaching a spiritual master. Inquire from him submissively and render service unto him. The self-realized soul can impart knowledge unto you because he has seen the truth.” All mantras should be received through the authorized guru, and the disciple must satisfy the guru in all respects, after surrendering at his lotus feet. In the PadmaPurāṇa it is also said, sampradāya-vihīnā ye mantrās teniṣphalā matāḥ. There are four sampradāyas, or disciplic successions, namely the Brahma-sampradāya, the Rudra-sampradāya, the Śrī sampradāya and the Kumāra-sampradāya. If one wants to advance in spiritual power, one must receive his mantras from one of these bona fide sampradāyas; otherwise he will never successfully advance in spiritual life.
Thus end the Bhaktivedanta purports of the Sixth Canto, Eighth Chapter, of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, entitled “The Nārāyaṇa-kavaca Shield.”

Science of Vedas: How Physics Law of Infinity originated from Isha Upanishad (IshaVasya Upanishad) part of the (Shukla) Yajurveda





Here Come Origin of Physics Law of Infinity from Isha Upanishad (IshaVasya Upanishad) part of the (Shukla) Yajurveda :

ॐ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदम् पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते |

पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ||



ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ||

Om, That is complete, This is complete, From the completeness comes the completeness
(Om=sound of creation, holy word; Poornam=Complete, Adah=that; poornam=complete;poornamadah=that is complete; idam=this; poornamidam=this is complete; poornaat=from completeness; udachyate=comes, rises; poornamudachyate=comes completeness)

If completeness is taken away from completeness, Only completeness remains
(Poorna=complete; asya=from; Poornasya=From completeness; poornamaadaaya=remove completeness; poornam=complete, eva=only; vashishyate=remains; poornamevaavashishṣyate=Only completeness remains)

Om, Peace peace peace
(Om=sound of creation, holy word; shaantih=Peace)

Explanation : 

Om That (Supreme Brahman) is complete and infinite, is always infinite, and this (Conditioned Brahman) is infinite. The Infinite (conditioned Brahman) proceeds from the infinite (Supreme Brahman).

(Then through Knowledge), Realizing the infinitude of the infinite (Conditioned Brahman), it remains as the infinite (unconditioned Brahman) alone.

Which clearly means god has no ends, it has endless forms and formations and every formations emerged from one and another, even if remove any form it will remain complete and infinite. energy can neither be created nor be destroyed only it changes its shape and size, same goes to the concept of ” Poornam ” – Complete and infinite , everything comes from completeness, what remain will be same. If we can remove one drop of water from ocean, it still have many drops of water, what remain will be endless drops of water. This ocean is like Infinite and complete like almighty too, that clearly defines laws of infinity is itself came from the sound of OM, that is itself complete and infinite in its formation and many of an individual form and sounds can be emerged . Even if we remove one sound from it still many sounds will be there in it.Its just like a nuclear fission reaction and it keep going on inside this OM.

Thus, “Purnamadah Purnamidam” can be interpreted as Supreme Brahman Tatva  and the Individual Tatva are both Complete and infinite and are one form of another, replica of one and another.

” Purnat Purnam Udachyate ” meaning : from this Supreme Brahman Individual Tatva is emerged.

In the same line, Physics Law of Infinity  also says :

It appears, then, that the assumption of nothing implies an infinite, four-dimensional expanse of space and time (not yet spacetime, which is significantly different)— still nothing, to be sure, but at least a somewhat more interesting version of it. To take another step toward existence, it is necessary to examine this curious notion of infinity that is inextricably bound to the assumption of nothing.

This clearly shows Physics originate from Nature laws and principals and acting as another form of Upanishads. Most of the renowned laws of physics came from Upanishads.If one can able to understand Upanishads deeply he can easily understand how science is relative to our scriptures only the nature or form of science is different from one another.

Nikola Tesla said it best, “the day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence. To understand the true nature of the universe, one must think it terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”

Science works best when in harmony with nature. If we put these two together, we can discover great technologies that can only come about when the consciousness of the planet is ready to embrace them, like free energy.

Now try to apply same principals in human body in terms of  Frequencies, vibrations and energies, If you want to understand how a physical body work in Physical plane or how you send positive or negative signals  to Universe.This is the way to understand it in simpler form. In Physical reality You are a living light body in Subtle Energy form or living in an Quantum Energy Form like many other Bodies,  you also vibrates certain amount of frequencies to universe and intensity of your actions or Karamas decides how much frequencies you send to universe. your Soul is Quantum energy living inside your Body, your body is form of an Atom attracts or pulls other atoms in your life.

Your Positive/Negative thoughts Sends Energy Signals in spiritual space plane, your moods, thoughts, actions and feelings generates certain subtle level of frequencies and vibrations those are keep travelling in spiritual plane. Your 7 chakaras Vibrates at certain amount of frequencies and releases energies in Universe. Your thoughts travels in Space plane in energy form and invite Negative and Positive Entities/People or energies in your life.

So watch your actions and thoughts.

In Short, Your Body = Atom, Your Soul = Subtle Light Energy or Quantum Energy, Karma = Frequencies you Generate and Thoughts = Energies you send and Chakara = Vibrations.

HOW DO YOU SPREAD HUMAN ENERGIES AND CAN CREATE YOUR BEAUTIFUL FUTURE



You’re all enveloped by the energies around you, the energies of the universe, the energies of the elements which are inside and outside. The energies travel in the form of wave just like sound wave with the collision of particles. It works at different levels through thoughts, speech, sight & touch.

1. When you receive any good or bad intention and you walk through these thoughts, begin with the thinking process, the more you go deeper and deeper, more you transmit the the electromagnetic waves which travel in the universe to match its frequency & attract/manifest these situations/events in your life. (How the intention is created inside and how it manifests is not in the scope of this write-up). But, the important point is that we need to be aware and conscious of what thoughts we are subscribing from this unlimited expansive library.

2. Even after the thoughts, we can actually hold the manifestation by creating a different aura by the tool blessed to us called speech through which we chant, use affirmations, recite divine words & names and by speech we give output to the created thoughts. Majority, speak what they think means they are driven by their thoughts but when you’re conscious, you’re are out of the thought zone and you pick choose which thoughts to put into manifestation. So, the underlying principle is speak with awareness & conscious. Be concious of what thoughts your are speaking. You can use positive thoughts and give them output through your speech.

3. Energies travel outside your Auric field through your sight and touch. When you put your sight on anything it creates an intention and a thought process which further leads to creating your own reality. Similarly, when you touch someone or keep your touch with something, the energy transfers into you from that someone or something & another intention is created. The circle of thought to manifestations begin again.
Become aware & conscious of your thoughts, speech, sight & touch!!
