The Advance Age of Machines – The Kaliyuga, Danger of extreme futurism when mankind will decay



What Murphy Law Says?


Murphy’s law is a popular adage that states that “things will go wrong in any given situation, if you give them a chance,” or more commonly, “whatever can go wrong, will go wrong.” A number of variants on the rule have been formulated, as have several corollaries.

A time will come when Mankind will decay like what Murphy law  has explained, sooner or later that is destined to come might be after 1000  or 10,000 years later or much sooner, that I don’t know, but it will come with much havoc advancement, Everything that grows always falls or fades that’s the natural law.

So, same is about technology and extreme futurism, it also has drawback may be we cant see right now but it will come with human degradation.

This advancement of Mankind might be waiting for its degradation and destruction period, as it has been seen in Every 1000 years of duration there has been a period of a complete change in the era and the underlying situation is hard to explain.This, we had already seen from the Year 900 AD to 21st century till now,  how India got decay in his moral and spiritual values and senses. 

More can be yet to come in the year 3000, we don’t know about it, as Kaal (Time )  is that mysterious system of higher divine only sages of higher senses can able to understand its root. 

It has been said by the Krishna itself, I will be there on the earth until 10,000 years of Kaliyug to maintain, uphold Dharma and Spirituality for kind and devotees.

There have been many More Such predictions and futuristic quotes have been explained in Vedic scriptures (i.e Puranas and Upanishads) for kaliyug.

Now, first let us understand what is Kaliyuga?


As Per Wikipedia, Kali Yuga (Devanāgarī: कलियुग [kəli juɡə], lit. “age of Kali”, or “age of vice”) is the last of the four stages (or ages or yugas) the world goes through as part of a ‘cycle of yugas’ (i.e. Mahayuga) described in the Sanskrit scriptures. The other ages are called Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga, and Dvapara Yuga.Kali Yuga is associated with the demon Kali (not to be confused with the goddess Kālī). The “Kali” of Kali Yuga means “strife”, “discord”, “quarrel” or “contention”.

 Departure of Krishna 

According to Puranic sources, Krishna’s departure marks the end of Dvapara Yuga and the start of Kali Yuga, which is dated to 17/18 February 3102 BCE.When Krishna was leaving the Mortal world, Host of Siddhas, Pitrs, Gandharvas, Vidya Dharas,  Great Nagas, Charamas, Yakshas, Rakshasas, Kinnaras, Apsaras and Dwijas arrived there to witen the divine departure. Krishna Saw Bramha and other gods and later he shuts his eyes and lost himself in Deep Samadhi and observbed his atman into Brahman.

The Sky Rained Flowers, it erupted with drumrolls of the gods. When Krishna left the world, Dharma, Compassion, Glory and prosperity followed him out of it and then kali yuga entered it wholly.

Meanwhile Soon after Krishna left the earth, the sea swelled in huge tides and drowned that peerless and magical city – Dwarka.only the Mansion in which Krishna had lived remained above water.

Begining of Kaliyuga

View of Surya Siddhanta on Kaliyuga

According to the Surya Siddhanta, Kali Yuga began at midnight (00:00) on 18 February 3102 BCE.This is also considered the date on which Lord Krishna left the earth to return to Vaikuntha. This information is placed at the temple of Bhalka, the place of this incident.

View of Aryabhatta on Kaliyuga

According to the astronomer and mathematician Aryabhatta, as mentioned in Wikipedia, the Kali Yuga started in 3102 BCE. He finished his book “Aryabhattiya” in 499 CE, in which he gives the exact year of the beginning of Kali Yuga. He writes that he wrote the book in the “year 3600 of the Kali Age” at the age of 23. As it was the 3600th year of the Kali Age when he was 23 years old, and given that Aryabhatta was born in 476 CE, the beginning of the Kali Yuga would come to (3600 – (476 + 23) + 1 (As only one year elapses between 1 BCE and 1 CE) = ) 3102 BCE.

View of KD Abhyankar on Kaliyuga


According to KD Abhyankar, the starting point of Kaliyuga is an extremely rare planetary alignment, which is depicted in the Mohenjo-Daro seals. Going by this alignment the year 3102 BCE is slightly off. The actual date for this alignment is February 7 of 3104 BCE. There is also sufficient proof to believe that Vrdhha Garga knew of precession at least by 500 BCE. Garga had calculated the rate of precession to within 30% of what the modern scholars estimate.

View of Gaudiya Vashinavs guru’s on Kaliyuga


Most interpreters of Vedic scriptures, as Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Goswami and his recent disciple Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada believe that Earth is currently in Kali Yuga and lasts 432,000 years. 

View of Sri-Yukteswara on Kaliyuga


Other authors, such as Swami Sri Yukteswar and Paramhansa Yogananda,believe that it is now an ascending Dvapara Yuga, indicating levels of cycles within each major Yuga period as each being a development, the smaller cycles within cycles eventually leading to full development of the qualities of the ages. The Kali Yuga is thought by some authors to last 6480 years although other durations have been proposed.

 Srimad Bhagavatam View on Kaliyuga
SB 12.2.31
yadā devarṣayaḥ sapta
maghāsu vicaranti hi
tadā pravṛttas tu kalir
dvādaśābda-śatātmakaḥ

Synonyms: 


yadā — when; deva-ṛṣayaḥ sapta — the seven sages among the demigods; maghāsu — in the lunar mansion Maghā; vicaranti — are traveling; hi — indeed; tadā — then; pravṛttaḥ — begins; tu — and; kaliḥ — the Age of Kali; dvādaśa — twelve; abda-śata — centuries [These twelve hundred years of the demigods equal 432,000 earth years]; ātmakaḥ — consisting of.
Translation: 

When the constellation of the seven sages is passing through the lunar mansion Maghā, the Age of Kali begins. It comprises twelve hundred years of the demigods

Explanation : 
Srimad-Bhagavatam (12.2.31) records Kali-yuga as having begun when the constellation of the seven sages (saptarsi) passed through the lunar mansion of Magha. Hindu astrologers have calculated this to have been 2:27 a.m. on February 18, 3102 BC. This took place some 36 years after Lord Krsna spoke Bhagavad-gita to Arjuna.

View of scholar Bibhu Dev Misra


As per Bibhu Dev Misra, Aryabhatta had calculated the start date of the Kali Yuga on the basis of the information in the Sanskrit astronomical treatise, the Surya Siddhanta, according to which the five “geocentric planets” (i.e. the planets visible to the naked eye) – Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn – were aligned to 0° of Aries (near the star Zeta Piscium) at the beginning of the Kali Yuga. He, thus, arrived at the date of 17/18 February, 3102 BC as the starting point of the Kali Yuga. However, modern simulations carried out by Richard Thompson show that on 17/18 February, 3102 BC, the five geocentric planets occupied an arc of roughly 42° in the sky and were scattered over three zodiacal signs – Aries, Pisces, and Aquarius. This cannot be considered as a conjunction by any means. Far more spectacular ‘alignment’ of planets has occurred in the preceding and succeeding centuries. In other words, the conjunction of geocentric planets at 0° of Aries that was supposedly targeted by Aryabhatta did not take place in 3102 BC.

As per the Author, The original Yuga Cycle doctrine appears to have been very simple: A Yuga Cycle duration of 12,000 years, with each Yuga lasting for 3,000 years. This cycle is encoded in the “Saptarsi Calendar” which has been used in India for thousands of years. It was used extensively during the Maurya period in the 4th century BC and is still in use in some parts of India. The term “Saptarsi” refers to the “Seven Rishis” or the “Seven Sages” representing the seven stars of the Great Bear constellation (Ursa Major). They are regarded as the enlightened rishis who appear at the beginning of every Yuga to spread the laws of civilization. The Saptarsi Calendar used in India had a cycle of 2,700 years; it is said that the Great Bear constellation stays for 100 years in each of the 27 “Nakshatras” (lunar asterisms) which adds up to a cycle of 2,700 years.The 2,700 year cycle was also referred to as a “Saptarsi Era” or a “Saptarsi Yuga”.

Saptarsi Calendar began from 3076 BC and Dr. Subhash Kak points out, “the new count that goes back to 3076 BC was started later to make it as close to the start of the Kali era as possible”. In 3076 BC, the Great Bear was in the “Magha” nakshatra (lunar asterism) as mentioned by Varahamihira in Brihat-Samhita (Brs. 13-3). But Subhash Kak points out that, “By the time of the Greeks, the nakshatras were listed starting with Asvin (Surya Siddhanta 8.9). As Magha is the tenth nakshatra in a count beginning with Asvin, one needs to add 900 years to find the epoch for the beginning of the cycle. This takes one to 3976 BC. One more complete Saptarsi Cycle of 2,700 years before that brings us to 6676 BC.” Since the Dwapara Yuga immediately precedes the Kali Yuga, we are once again led to the conclusion that the Saptarsi Calendar with a start date of 6676 BC was counting time from the Dwapara Yuga.


(Source: The end of the Kali Yuga in 2025: Unraveling the mysteries of the Yuga Cycle by Bibhu Dev Misra, Complete Article Link: https://grahamhancock.com/dmisrab6/ )
Conclusion: from All above we can confirm that Exact details of Kaliyuga conjunction point is still unknown and Yuga cycle still needs lots of thorough research and studies but it is assumed to be say that Kaliyuga was started around 3000 BC and exact date and time could be in ambiguity.

Hopefully, soon we will able to find out the exact conjunction point of the beginning of kalyiuga.

What are the Symptoms of Kali-yuga
There has been plenty of Reasoning and explanation given in Brahama Vivstra Puran and Bhagwad Puraan in detailed regarding what will happen to Kaliyug in later part. 

Below are some of the points I have observed based on my learning, Intuition and transcendental observation which I had observed from many of Hindu scriptures.

That Day will come soon when men and women fertility will become zero at the point of extreme globalization and when karmic actions in real life will fall and it will become zero.Sooner or later there will be degradation of Religious up-liftment in ideas of spirituality and Advancement.


The mind will develop more and more in higher mundane values, Material will rule over mind and we will stop realizing the real values of relations sooner or later. we will forget to realize who will be our father, Mother or husband or kids values to us and what they will be matter in our life. Differentiation of relations will be based only on Material and mundane nature. People will have multiple relations and will make relations with one and another just to satisfy their greed, desire and lusts. There will be no multiple religions though there will be a mixed form of religion without any religious ground.

Men will be busy in Advance thinking and Women will be busy in a complete makeover of their Mind, Body and Soul only for mundane values or practical outlooks.

The relational value will degrade soon, A child won’t remain as a child he will be only a formality soon and family life will split up like a need for change.

Virtual gratification of senses will be the first choice of enjoyment. Phones, Media and Computerization will sooner become a danger mark for mankind. Mankind will soon leave the idea of Nature.Nature will remain only for the idea of Resources and need only.That would be the advanced age of Nature when Men and women will travel like Boeing jet from India to the US within flicks of seconds.

Inter- Planetarium visit will become like Fun and enjoyment soon at that age. Man will take Interstellar travel to seek for New civilization and search for new life.I don’t know what they will achieve at that age.A man will itself become like an Alien to other mankind. Mankind will suffer because of own mistakes.Crops will become dry and lands will be out of Resources and heat will remain for more than Seasons. Seasons will no longer be like normal.Nature will cry for reasons why he let the man exploit it.

That would be that advanced age and time when man and women will unleash extreme mental energy from mind to get work done. the brain will be so much developed at that time that even you won’t able to think how and why God has made and gifted this body to you to get accomplish your karmas of life.why physical works would be so much important you will soon forget at that age. that age would be advance space age when you forget your body, your physical needs, only thing would be remembered would be how to ignore physical tasks and why those tasks are important.

That’s the problem of too much futuristic thinking – the advanced age of Rahu when you will live only in your virtual reality. that would be days when the height of men and women will reduce to an extreme extent like a short alien.

The body will become lean, brain size will increase and biggest irony would be both men and women won’t able to procreate their child and kids.Human will develop Machine to raise babies in machine care. body chakras won’t able to work like in a natural way or they become too many hyper actives and body will experience too many drastic changes but Brian will unleash its extreme energy to understand nature and it’s processing, a man will not only succeed only in manipulating with bodies he will do changes with nature too.

Baby will be born either in the machine or taken care by the machine itself – the age would be advanced age of Rahu the mega mind machine age.
As Per Scriptures, When the Age of Kali will progress, all good qualities of men will diminish and all impure qualities increase. Atheistic systems of so-called religion become predominant, replacing the codes of Vedic law. The kings become just like highway bandits, the people, in general, become dedicated to low occupations, and all the social classes become just like śūdras. All cows become like goats, all spiritual hermitages become like materialistic homes, and family ties extend no further than the immediate relationship of marriage.

When the Age of Kali has almost ended, the Supreme Personality of Godhead will incarnate. He will appear in the village Śambhala, in the home of the exalted brāhmaṇa Viṣṇuyaśā, and will take the name Kalki. He will mount His horse Devadatta and, taking His sword in hand, will roam about the earth killing millions of bandits in the guise of kings. 

Then the signs of the next Satya-yuga will begin to appear. 

When the moon, sun and the planet Bṛhaspati enter simultaneously into one constellation and conjoin in the lunar mansion Puṣyā, Satya-yuga will begin. 

In the order of Satya, Tretā, Dvāpara and Kali, the cycle of four ages rotates in the society of living entities in this universe.


Welcome to Kali (Machines) -yuga (Era) – The Advance Age of Machine, Iron and Technology,  Drastic Future is waiting for you.

Let’s Decode bit by bit How Kaliyug will progress based on our Vedic Scriptures as mentioned in Bhagwat and other Puranas.

Translation and purport explained by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda

TRANSLATION



By the time the age of Kali ends, the bodies of all creatures will be greatly reduced in size, and the religious principles of followers of varṇāśrama will be ruined. 

The path of the Vedas will be completely forgotten in human society, and so-called religion will be mostly atheistic. 
The kings will mostly be thieves, the occupations of men will be stealing, lying and needless violence, and all the social classes will be reduced to the lowest level of śūdras.
Cows will be like goats, spiritual hermitages will be no different from mundane houses, and family ties will extend no further than the immediate bonds of marriage.


Most plants and herbs will be tiny, and all trees will appear like dwarf śamī trees. 
Clouds will be full of lightning, homes will be devoid of piety, and all human beings will have become like asses. At that time, the Supreme Personality of Godhead will appear on the earth. 
Acting with the power of pure spiritual goodness, He will rescue eternal religion.

Lord Kalki, the Lord of the universe, will mount His swift horse Devadatta and, sword in hand, travel over the earth exhibiting His eight mystic opulences and eight special qualities of Godhead. Displaying His unequaled effulgence and riding with great speed, He will kill by the millions those thieves who have dared dress as kings.

There is Few More addition in the list:

  • Rulers will confiscate property and use it badly, They will cease to protect the people. 
  • Base men who have gained a certain amount of learning (without having the virtues necessary for its use) will be esteemed as sages. 
  • The state leaders will no longer protect the people but, through taxes, will appropriate all wealth. 
  • There will be many displaced persons, wandering from one country to another.  
  • Predatory animals will be more violent. 
  • People will prefer to choose false ideas. 
  • No one will be able to trust anyone else. 
  • People will be envious. 
  • There will be many children born whose life expectancy is no more than 16 years. 
  • People suffering from hunger and fear will take refuge in “underground shelters.”  
  • The god of clouds will be inconsistent in the distribution of the rains.  
  • Water will be lacking.There will be many beggars and unemployed people. 
  • Everyone will use hard and vulgar language. Men will devote themselves to earning money; the richest will hold power.
Further, it has Been explained in Brahma Puraan abo
ut the Symptoms of Kaliyug:


According to Brahma and Vishnu Puranas, the sanctity of dharma and karma would reduce with each yuga and the turn of events to mark the end mankind would be triggered by humans, themselves.
It is explained that Kaliyuga is the last era; hence, whatever rewards or punishments we deserve based on our Karma, we’ll have to serve here in this era. 

And, when this era will come to end, we’ll surely find these shocking things happening.Towards the end of Kaliyuga, the maximum lifespan for humans would be reduced to 12 years of age and their body will shrink up to 4 inches.

It is mentioned in Brahma Purana that Kaliyuga would last for only 10 thousand years; during which it would witness the downfall of the human race. Half of the world will be plagued with illness and the other half would be engaged in combat. To end this, Vishnu will take the Kalki avatar.


Every water resource would begin to dry up mysteriously and there’ll be complete disregard and no devotion left towards, parents, family, children, and guru.Paper money will be the cause of destruction among humans and people involved in the solicitation of funds will not hesitate to kill.


5 thousand years into Kaliyuga and the holy river Ganges will change its course and would start flowing backward and return to Vaikunth Dham, her holy abode. 10 years into Kaliyua, every God, and Goddess present on earth would leave for heavenly abode, to never return. This would mark the immediate end of religious faith among humans.
Just before the impending annihilation, the earth would stop procreating, in terms of flowers, fruits, and foods. No amount of technology or prayers would make the soil fertile again, bees would stop collecting nectar, silkworm would stop producing silk, and cows would stop milking. 


Last 20 years of Kaliyuga, would be seeing the heights of brutalism amid humans. The money would overpower intellect, strength would overpower humanity. Children born through one mother would become the cause of each other’s destruction.

When terrorism would be at its peak, Vishnu would be born as Kalki; he’ll be taller than any human ever seen, would be stronger than 1000 pair of elephants. His temper would be blessed by Shiva’s Rudra avatar. And, he will take only three days to completely devoid Earth of any living presence.



What would be End  of Kaliyug:



*.The last 5 years of Kaliyuga, Earth will bear torrential rains that would immerse all the dead and every inch of land. 

*.The last day of Kaliyuga would see the longest night, after which 12 Suns would arise and would continue to shine for years until every drop of water is soaked. 

More Shalokas from Brahma Vaivarta Purana on kaliyug golden age

There has been lot more written on Brahma Vaivarta Purana on Kalyug progression.

Here are the 10 verse taken from the Brahma-vaivarta Purana that were spoken by Lord Krishna to Mother Ganga just before the beginning of Kali yug.

Within this 432,000 year period, there is a period of 10,000 years that will be a golden age commence with the birth of Mahaprabhu.

That golden age is being described below by Lord Sri Krishna.

When the demigods prayed to Bhagavān Śrī Kṛṣṇa, requesting Him to incarnate on the Earth, He said, “I will appear on the bank of the Ganges between the fourth and fifth millennia of the age of Kali. My heart having been satisfied by the prayers of the incarnation of Śaṅkara, Śrī Advaita Ācārya, I will manifest Myself as a virtuous and renounced brāhmaṇa sannyāsī, devoid of material desires and possessing all transcendental qualities. At that time, My complexion will be golden, I will be called Miśra and My eyes and arms will be long. With all the symptoms described in Samudrikā of a mahā-puruṣa, I will taste My own sweetness in the form of a devotee. Only qualified persons will know who I am.”

“I will decend in a golden form and teach the chanting of my own holy names”

In the Garuda Purana it is also said:

kaleh prathama-sandhyayamlakrmi-kanto bhaviryatidaru-brahma-samipa-sthahsannyasi gaura-vigrahah


Explanation: 

“In the month of Phalguna, when the star phalguni is conjoined with the full moon, I will appear in a golden form begotten by Jagannatha Misra in Saci-devi’s womb.”

and in the Ananta-samhita:Krsnas caitanya-gaurangogauracandrah saci-sutahprabhur gauro gaura-harirnamani bhakti-dani me

Explanation:  


At this time My names will be: Krsna Caitanya, Gauranga, Gauracandra, Sacisuta, Mahaprabhu, Gaura, and Gaurahari. Chanting these names will bring devotion to Me.”

As Said by the Author of  Salooba  “

It was already  predicted in advance of the advent of 14th century religious reformer Sri Krishna Chaitanya. Even the Manvantara, the Yuga, the millennium, practically the year, the actual month and the astronomical conjunction on the day of his birth were accurately predicted thousands of years earlier in Bramha Puraanas. Even the names of his parents, his physical features, his particular childhood and adult names, the place of birth, the secret nature of his identity, and an accurate description of his religious teachings. Other such verses include the prediction of his associates, the name of his village, and the resulting world-wide effect of his teachings. The physical proof is there that the Atharva Veda and Puranic texts predate the year of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s birth in 1486 in Navadvipa on the Ganges in India.


As, Sri Caitanya is an actual avatar of God ie: Krishna, who incarnates once every thousand divya-yuga cycles, this special age we live in called “Kali-yuga” has also been described as the “Dhanya-Kali-Yuga” by His transcendental associates, in verses such as this:
debera durlabha ratna milā-ilā kari yatnakṛpāya bālā-i laiyā marikailā kali-yuga dhanya prabhu kṛṣṇa-caitanyayaśa gāya dāsa narahari

Explanation:  

“ Lord Gaura-Hari carefully brought with Him rare and precious jewels, jewels even the demigods cannot obtain. The Lord kindly distributed those jewels to everyone. In this way He made the Kali-yuga a glorious and fortunate time. Thus Narahari dasa sings the glories of Lord Krishna Caitanya.”

Different Gaudiya Acharyas have different opionion on the Golden age of the Kaliyuga:

In Kali-yuga, the partial manifestation of Krishna, Sri Narayana, brings the Mahamantra.Another incarnation of Krishna is lord Buddha who is an another avatar in the Kali age, and when godlessness prevails at the very end, Lord Kalki will appears, delivers the Earth from degradation, and re-introduces the Satya Golden Age ( the New Yuga cycle will come after a great churning of the yugas). 
However, once in every day of Brahma, Sri Gauranga is the Yuga-Avatar. He distributes with great fortune (dhanya) the Krishna-Nama sankirtan movement imbibed with Krishna-prema, Radha-dasyam and the highest destination of Goloka-Vrindavan-Navadwipa.
It has been said by some Gaudiya Acaryas that this Golden Age of Sri Caitanya lasts for 10,000 years, others have said 103,500 years, while other “Gaura-Yugas” last for the entire 427,000 remaining years of Kali. 

Even He said, “When I will appear My names will be: Krsna Caitanya, Gauranga, Gauracandra, Sacisuta, Mahaprabhu, Gaura, and Gaurahari”

Sri Caitanya-deva himself also predicted the global effect of his appearance in this kali-yuga, in the Antya-lila (4.126) of the Caitanya Bhagavata.

Sri Caitanya explains: “I have appeared on earth to propagate the congregational chanting of the holy names of God. In this way, I will deliver the sinful material world. Those demons who never before accepted My authority and lordship will weep in joy by chanting My names. I will vigorously distribute devotional service, bhakti, which is sought after even by demigods, sages, and perfected beings, so that even the most abominable sinners will receive it. But those who, intoxicated with education, wealth, family background, and knowledge, criticize and offend My devotees, will be deprived of everything and will never know My true identity.” Then Sri Chaitanya specifically states:

Explanation: 

prthivite ache yadi nagaradi grama

sarvatra pracara hoibe more nama
“I declare that My name will be preached in every town and village on this earth.”

Here are the 10 verse taken from the Brahma-vaivarta Purana that were spoken by Lord Krishna to Mother Ganga just before the beginning of Kali yug.

These texts are taken from the Brahma-vaivarta Purana 4th Khanda or the Krishna Janma Khanda, in Chapter 129. 

Verse 49 is a question by Mother Ganga and verses 50-60 are Krishna’s answer.

Verse 49
bhagarathy uvaca he natha ramanashreshtha yasi golokamuttamam asmakam ka gatishcatra bhavishyati kalau yuge
Translation:

Ganges said: O protector, Supreme enjoyer, on your departure for the perfect abode, Goloka, thereafter what will be my situation in the age of kali?

Verse 50

sri-bhagavan uvaca kaleh pancasahasranivarshani tishtha bhutale papani papino yani tubhyam dasyanti snanatah

 Translation:

The blessed Lord said: On the earth 5,000 years of kali will be sinful and sinners will deposit their sins in you by bathing.

Note :

We have presently passed through just over 5,000 years of Kali yuga. As was predicted by Lord Krishna, this period from the end of the previous age to the present comprising 5,000 years was a period of great degradation and darkness. 

The great and ancient Vedic culture of India was lost and the so-called followers became ritualistic practitioners, interested only in the bodily conception of life. The four pillars of spiritual life, namely truthfulness, austerity, cleanliness, and mercy are practically nonexistent today, even in the so-called holy sites of pilgrimage. The general mass of people have no interest in God, and any remnant of religion they might still follow is simply for the purpose of economic development. In the name of God so many sinful acts are being carried out throughout the world. Killing of innocent animals, intoxication, illicit sex, and gambling have become common and “natural” activities supported by the governments and religions of the world.  


All of these points confirm Lord Krishna’s prediction regarding the first 5,000 years of the Kali yuga.

   Verse 51
Man-mantropasakasparshad bhasmibhutani tatkshanat 
Bhavishyanti darsanacca snanadeva hi jahnavi 

 Translation:

Thereafter by the sight and touch of those who worship me by my mantra, all those sins will be burnt.

Note : 

Lord Krishna has said that for 5,000 years mother Ganga will purify the sinful inhabitants of the earthly planet in the age of Kali. But where will those accumulated sinful reactions go? Therefore Krishna says here that those sinful reactions, accumulated for thousands of years will all be burnt to ashes simply by a moments touch of a pure devotee of the Lord. The word tatksanat indicates that immediately the reactions are destroyed. A moments glimpse of a pure devotee is enough to purify the heart of a sinful man in this age of Kali. Even mother Ganga is blessed and purified by the association of the Lords devotees, so what to speak of fallen souls like ourselves. We must take every opportunity to associate with the Lord’s pure devotees. This is the process of sadhu-sanga, or sat-sanga.  

Through association with the saints, we come in contact directly with the Supreme Lord. If we have such a great fortune to associate with the saintly devotees of the Lord, our heart will be purified of all the sinful reactions accumulated from countless lifetimes. 

In this verse Krishna defines who are those pure devotees: man-mantropasaka, “one who is doing upasana, or worship, of Krishna by performing samayama on Krishna’s mantra.” Krishna says literally “My mantra”, man-mantra. This mantra Krishna is referring to is the esoteric maha-mantra. In preparation for the Golden Age, Krishna has authorized the initiation into the practice of Samyama on His esoteric maha-mantra to quickly establish Krishna Consciousness. Samayama on the esoteric maha-mantra is the ultimate secret for success on the path to Krishna Consciousness.   

The Guru will impart shakti to the mantra when it is given and that shakti makes the mantra active, increasing its power to transform consciousness by 1000%.The basis of samayama is Turiya, from where this technique is applied and finds success.   

Therefore the foundation of all success is to learn Atmavedi Meditation to experience Turiya and then the practice of samayama is successful.   

It should be noted that Krishna does not say mother Ganga will be purified by yogis. Nor does he say she will be purified by jnanis. Nor by rishis, tapasvis, siddhas or a host of other saintly minded men. Krishna says it will be His pure devotees (bhaktas) who perform samayama on His esoteric maha-mantra that will purify mother Ganga and the entire age of Kali. Only samayama on the esoteric maha-mantra is powerful enough to purify this present age of Kali.  

Therefore only the Lord’s devotees have the power to bring about the golden age within Kali yuga.

 Verse 52
Harernamani yatraiva puranani bhavanti hi
Tatra gatva savadhanam abhih sarddham ca shroshyasi

Translation:

There will be samyama on the esoteric maha-mantra and reading of the [Bhagavata] Purana. Reaching such a place, attentively hear.

Note :

Here Lord Krishna describes the activities within the golden age that will purify the Kali yuga. First and foremost is samyama on the esoteric maha-mantra, indicated by the words harernamani. This is further confirmed in the Brihad-naradiya Purana as follows:

harer nama harer nama harer namaiva kevalamkalau nastyeva nastyeva nastyeva gatir anyata

“In the age of Kali there is no other way to achieve the supreme destination of life other than by performing samayama on the esoteric maha-mantra. There is no other way, no other way, no other way.”The second activity that Lord Krishna describes is the reading of the Bhagavata Purana, or Srimad Bhagavatam. The reading of Srimad Bhagavatam is especially recommended by the great sage Vyasadeva for purification of the heart:

Srinvatam sva kathah krishnah punya-sravana-kirtanah

Hridy antah stho hy abhadrani vidhunoti suhrit satam

“By hearing and reciting the sacred narrations of the pastimes of Lord Krishna (within the Srimad Bhagavatam), all the bad qualities within one’s heart are cleansed.”

it is stated that :

nashta-prayushv abhadreshu nityam bhagavata-sevayabhagavaty uttama-shlokem bhaktir bhavati naishthiki

“By daily reading Srimad Bhagavatam and by rendering service to the pure devotees, all that is troublesome to the heart is almost completely destroyed, and loving devotional service unto the Personality of Godhead is established as an irrevocable fact.”The present age is simply a reflection of the hearts of millions of living entities on the earthly planet. Because our hearts are polluted by kama (lust), krodha (anger), lobha (greed) and matsarya (envy), therefore the present age is called the age of quarrel. It is not that we are bad because the age is bad, but rather the age is bad because our hearts are impure. The cure for a polluted heart is described above: daily reading of the Srimad Bhagavatam. If the entire population were to take up the reading of the sacred text of Srimad Bhagavatam, everyone’s heart would be purified and the age of Kali would no longer be able to influence the world.The Srimad Bhagavatam is not an ordinary book, but it is directly an incarnation of Krishna:

idam bhagavatam nama puranam brahma-sammitamuttama-shloka-caritam cakara bhagavan rishihnihsreyasaya lokasyadhanyam svasty-ayanam mahat

“This Srimad Bhagavatam is the literary incarnation of Krishna, and it is compiled by Srila Vyasadeva, the incarnation of Krishna. It is meant for the ultimate good of all people, and it is all-successful, all blissful and all-perfect.”Srimad Bhagavatam is defined as brahma sammitam because it is the sound representative of Brahman, the absolute truth.

Verse 53

purana shravanaccaiva harernamanukirtanat 
bhasmibhutani papani brahma-hatyadikani ca

 Translation:

Sinful reactions including the killing of a brahmana can be nullified by hearing the Purana and samyama on the esoteric maha-mantra.

Verse 54

Bhasmibhutani tanyeva vaishnavalinganena caTrinani shushkakashthani dahanti pavako yatha 

Translation:

Just as dry grass is burnt by fire, by the embrace of My devotees all sins are burnt.

Verse 55

tathapi vaishnava loke papani papinamapi

prithivyam yani tirthani punyanyapi ca jahnavi

 Translation:

O Ganges, the whole planet will become a pilgrimage sight by the presence of My devotees, even though it had been sinful.

Verse 56

Madbhaktanam sharireshu santi puteshu samtatamMadbhaktapadarajasa sadyah puta vasundhara

Translation:

In the body of my devotees remains eternally [the purifier]. Mother earth becomes pure by the dust of the feet of my devotees.


Verse 57

Sadyah putani tirthani sadyah putam jagattatha

Manmantropasaka vipra ye maducchishtabhojinah

 Translation:

It will be the same in the case of pilgrimage sights and the whole world. Those intelligent worshipers of my mantra who partake My remnants will purify everything.

Explanation:

In this verse the words maducchishtabhojinah are very significant. Krishna states that those who perform samayama on the esoteric maha-mantra and partake of the experience (maducchishtabhojinah) will purify the world.

Human life is meant for performing samyama because samyamadevelops transcendental knowledge. Samyama Pure knowledge and advance in spiritual lifeThe first aspect of this samayama on the maha-mantra will correct any deficiencies in our other services to the Lord due to improper circumstances, impure ingredients, irregular timing, etc. The age of Kali is an ocean of faults. One such fault is that in this age everything is impure. It is impossible to properly perform any sacred activity, as the impurity of the age has affected the entire atmosphere, from the subtle (inner) down to the physical (external). Therefore all sacred activities in the age of Kali must be performed accompanied by samayama on the esoteric maha-mantra.

Verse 58

Mameva nityam dhyayante te mat pranadhikah priyah

Tadupasparshamatrena puto vayushca pavakah

Translation:

They are more dear to Me than My life, who everyday meditate only on Me. The air and fire become pure simply even by their indirect touch.

Verse 59

kaler dasha-sahasrani madbhaktah santi bhu-tale

ekavarna bhavishyanti madbhakteshu gateshu ca

 Translation:

For 10,000 years of kali such devotees of mine will fill the whole planet. After the departure of My devotees there will only be one varna This indicates a time when all people on earth will enjoy Krishna Realization. Such a time is found only during Satyug, so this 10,000 year period is a time of Satyug. 

Verse 60

Madbhaktashunya prithivi kaligrasta bhavishyatiEtasminnantare tatra krishnadehadvinirgatah

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

Translation:

Devoid of My devotees, the earth will be shackled by kali. Saying this Krishna departed.Right now 6000 Year we had already passed and 4000 is yet to come. God knows what would be those years. Live Example of Krishna presence can be seen in Vrindavan and in Jagannath Puri where Lord Krishna is still present and many millions of devotees daily experiencing the spiritual bliss of Krishna there that shows a period of Spirituality is yet not fallen.

Mahashiv Ratri – The Divine Night of Shiva and Shakti


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

Shiv he Sataya, Shiv he Braham, Shiva he Tathya, Shiv he Brahmand, Shiv he adi-Guru, Shiv he Akhand, Shiv he Shakti- Shiv he shiv.

करपूर गौरम करूणावतारम संसार सारम भुजगेन्द्र हारम |
सदा वसंतम हृदयारविंदे भवम भवानी सहितं नमामि |

Meaning –

I salute the merciful Bhava (i.e. Shiva), and his consort Sati, Adorned with the necklace of the serpent.

Explanation: 


Pure White like Camphor, an Incarnation of Compassion,
The Essence of Worldly Existence, Whose Garland is the King of Serpents, Always Dwelling inside the Lotus of the Heart.
I Bow to Shiva and Shakti Together.

Karpur Gauram : The one who is as pure as camphor(karpur)
Karuna avatar : The avatar full of compassion
Sansara Saram : The one who is the essence of the world
Bhujagendra haram: The one with the serpent king as his garland
Sada vasantam : Always residing
Hridaya arvinde : In the lotus of the heart
Bhavam Bhavani : Oh Lord and Goddess (Sati: wife of Shiva)
Sahitam Namami : I bow to you both

Essence of Mahashiv-Ratri:

Mahashivaratri (the great night of Shiva) falls on the fourteenth day of the dark fortnight of -Magha-Phalguna (February- March), and is dedicated to the worship of Lord Shiva. On this day devotees sing bhajans in honor of Shiva, recite Sanskrit shlokas (verses) from scriptures, offer prayers in the morning and evening, observing fasting throughout the day. 
Offering Bilva leaves to Shiva on Shivaratri is considered very auspicious by his devotees.

Maha-Shiv Ratri Purpose is to achieve eternal peace and happiness by worshipping Shiva at night, by meditating on one’s own self during the night when the individual is free from the distractions of the physical world. When the individual attains self-knowledge, he or she can live in the world without being affected by anger, greed, and selfishness, the three enemies of one’s soul. Shiva-ratri symbolizes the worship of the atman within. 


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

According to vedic astrological system, Mahashivaratri is considered as one such day when spritual energy in nature is too high to connect with the divine shiva to achieve spritual growth for the higher transformation. It is conducive to spiritual growth and meditation.

Meditation helps to reach at a point when we can experience space of nothingness and love. This experience takes us to the level of higher consciousness, that stage only a siddh yogi achieve via going into depeest state of meditation, that is called state of the Shiva- The Adhi-Yogi (The One).Shivratri is that night which is meant for spiritual seekers for connecting with the divine Nature.

Mahashivratri is the day when the Shiva Tattva (Guru Tattva- Akash – Eternal Knowledge – Braham) is believed to come in contact with the divine earth (Prakarti- Shakti –  Prithvi Tattva – Material). It is believed that during divine night of Maha-Shivratri our higher consciousness, aura, increases ten inches above the material ground or expands in a wide spritual plane. Our Chakaras get align with the nature energy and a sadhak can reaches to the height of Higher chakra – the chakra of One – OM. 

On this day, consciousness descends and touches the Prithvi Tattva.
That is why Mahashivratri is celebrated across the universe – it is the day of  wedding of  Shiva and Shakti (the Twin Particle of Prithvi and Aakash Tattva) the material world (Earth) with the spiritual world ( Brahmand).

The Dashavatara part 1 : Story of Birth of Krishna and era of Dharma and karma


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

Whenever Dharma, the situation of law and order, is endangered on this world, Lord Vishnu
incarnates onto this world to re-establish Dharma, and to protect noble souls and to destroy
the evil elements of the society.
The eighth such incarnation was Krishna, which is one of the most powerful of ten
incarnations of Lord Vishnu. What we know about the life of Krishna comes from two
sources, the Srimad Bhagavatam, and the Mahabharata. The Mahabharata deals with a
family called the Pandavas and their cousins, the Kauravas.
In the Mahabharata, there is a
dialogue between Krishna and his disciple Arjuna, which is called Bhagavad Gita. 
The
fascinating early life of Krishna is covered in the Bhagavatam, and is our current topic of
interest.
Story of the Lord Krishna’s Birth
Once, Mother Earth, unable to bear the burden of sins committed by evil kings and rulers,
appealed to Lord Brahma, the God of Creation, for help. Brahma prayed to the Supreme Lord
Vishnu, who assured Him that He would soon be born on earth to annihilate tyrannical forces. 
One such evil force was Kamsa, the ruler of Mathura in northern India. His people were
utterly terrified of him. He had overthrown his own father King Ugrasena so he could become
King of Mathura.
Devaki was the princess of Mathura, and beloved sister of Kamsa. She got married to a noble
young man, King Vasudeva of the Yadu dynasty. After the marriage ceremony, Vasudeva’s
chariot was ready to take Devaki along with him to his home. As Kamsa was very fond of his
sister, he declared that he himself would drive the chariot to Vasudeva’s house. 
While Kamsa
drove the chariot bearing Devaki and Vasudeva out of the Mathura, a voice boomed from the
heavens. It informed Kamsa that Devaki’s eighth child would be his slayer.
On hearing this, Kamsa got anxious and angry. He wanted to kill Devaki, his own beloved
sister. Afraid of the ill intentions of Kamsa, Vasudeva pleaded with him not to kill Devaki. 
He
promised to Kamsa that they would hand over all their children to Kamsa if he feared that
one of them would kill him. Kamsa accepted the words of Vasudeva but did not let them go
free. He put them in his palace prison. Whenever a male child was born to the couple, Kamsa
would come to the prison and kill the child by smashing his head on the prison wall. Because
he was so evil, Kamsa was not moved by the painful cries of the parents. This happened to
the first seven children of Devaki and Vasudeva, all of whom were boys.
3
Now Devaki was expecting her eighth child. When she was about to deliver her baby, she
and Vasudeva both heard an Akashavani (voice from the sky) which told them that they must
take their child to Gokul and exchange him with the new born daughter of Nanda, the
cowherd king of Gokul. 
They were told by the divine voice that their son who was about to
take birth was the incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He would eliminate evil on the earth and
protect the innocent people. The voice said nothing could stop Vasudeva from taking his son
to Gokul and coming back to the prison with Nanda’s daughter.
When Devaki gave birth to her eighth son, all the guards magically went to sleep and the
doors of the prison opened automatically. Vasudeva and Devaki were freed from their
shackles. 
It was raining heavily and Vasudeva had to cross the river Yamuna to reach Gokul.
The river was in full spate. Vasudeva took a bamboo basket and placed his son in it.
As Vasudeva stepped out and stood at the bank of river Yamuna, he was worried about his
child but then was reminded of the divine voice that promised him that nothing bad would
happen to the child. Vasudeva stepped into the river Yamuna submerging half his body in the
cold water. 
As he looked upwards, he saw a five mouthed snake providing protection to his
baby against the torrential rain!
On reaching Gokul, Vasudeva found the doors of Nanda’s house open and everyone in deep
sleep. He took the baby girl of Nanda from beside her mother Yashoda and put his own son
there. Then, as he had brought his son, he took the girl through the river. The five mouthed
snake protected the girl, just as it had Krishna. 
When he reached back home in Mathura, he
entered the prison, and everything got normal as before – he and Devaki were put back in
their shackles, the prison doors closed, and the guards woke up. As soon as the guards saw a
child beside Devaki, they informed Kamsa.
Kamsa, who had waited all these years to kill the eighth child of Devaki and Vasudeva, came
hurriedly to get rid of his destined slayer. Like always, he picked up the baby girl and threw
her against the wall but this time a miracle happened. 
The little baby slipped from his hands
and flew up into the air and took the form of the goddess, Yogamaya. She said to Kamsa,
“You want to kill me but the one who will kill you has taken birth and is safe somewhere out
of your reach. One day, your slayer will come searching for you and kill you. This is your
destiny and you cannot change this!” Saying this, she laughed and vanished leaving behind
the angry and dumbstruck Kamsa.
Nanda’s wife was Yashoda. Like Devaki, she had also given birth that night. She had fainted
at the time of her delivery. When she came to her senses next day morning, she found a
4
beautiful little baby lying by her side. Here was a joy beyond words, for the world had never
seen such a lovely child before. 
His skin was deep blue in color. The entire village came to
know that in Nanda’s house was born a most heavenly child. Nanda was the chief of the
Yadava clan. Since Nanda and Yashoda were not having any children, for quite some time,
the birth of the boy made the people of Gokul wild with delight and joy. The boy was named
Krishna with appropriate rituals. Krishna means “the dark skinned one.”
Every year, we celebrate a festival the day Lord Krishna was born, called Krishnashtami. 
The
festival is also called in different names as Sri Krishna Jayanti, Janmashtami, and as
Gokulashtami. 
Birth of Krishna Story

The story of Lord Krishna Around 5000 years ago, King Ugrasen ruled the small Indian village of Mathura. He was loved by all of his people, and raised two very fine children, Kans and Devki. As his children grew older, they both went their own ways. Kans jailed his father, and was the new King of Mathura. He still loved his sister, Devki, with a lot of heart, and got her married to an army officer, called Vasudev. On the day of their wedding, Kans found out that Devki’s eighth child would be born to kill him. For that reason, he though it would be wise to kill his sister Devki. Vasudev was very dear to Devki, and would not let this happen. They then came to an agreement that Kans will prison them, and let them live. But, they have to hand every child to Kans, so it can be killed. Kans had succeeded in killing all of Devki’s six children, and her seventh child, was transferred into Rohini’s womb. Being the second wife of Vasudev, Balram was then born to her, and Kans was fooled into thinking that Devki had a miscarriage. 

Krishna, being the eighth child, was born on a stormy night in that same prison. As the guards fell asleep, the gates of the prison opened freeing the family. Vasudev hid Krishna in a basket covered with a blanket and made their way to Gokul, where his friend Nand lived. While passing River Yamuna, the waters had turned wild. As Krishna’s foot touched the waters, the river parted making it easier for Vasudev to pass through. At that moment, Vasudev realized that Krishna was not a normal child but a divine human being. Nand & Yashoda became Krishna’s foster parents and Vasudev returned to the jail with Yashoda’s newborn daughter. She was then passed to Kans, to be killed as the eighth child of Devki. However, while taking this daughter by the legs, ready to end her life. She disappeared into thin air, being just an illusion and leaving a message that ‘the eighth child was born and is safe in Gokul’. 

Krishna grew up to be the son of Nand and Yashoda, and as destiny had predicted, he killed his uncle Kans, and all of Mathura was saved from his rule. Janmastami By Ami Gadhia Janmastami the festival Janmastami comes 8 days after the full moon of the Shravan month and it celebrates the birth of Lord Krishna. Many devotees begin fasting from ‘Sataam’ till the midnight of Krishna’s birth, where it is broken by tasting the ‘Prashad’ that was offered to him. There are two types of fasts; Nirjal fast is where they do not even have a drop of water on this day. They feel it will take them closer to God. The other fast is Phalahar Vrat, where only milk and fruits is eaten on this day. Salt and Cereals is also avoided on this day. People feel that it is the only thing that they can offer to God. Fasting is accompanied by singing bhajans throughout the day. Traditional sweets, made out of milk and butter are also eaten on this day, being one of Krishna’s favorite dishes. “Jhanki” means peeping into ones life. In this case, the moments of Krishna’s life is relived. People or Dolls are dressed up as Krishna, Devki and Vasudev. 

There are five scenes that are usually reconstructed. These are the birth of Krishna, Vasudev carrying Krishna safely across River Yamuna, His return to jail, the killing of Yashoda’s daughter and Little Krishna in his cradle in Gokul. The people that dress up are not seen as humans at this moment, but a representation of the Lord. The festival of Janmastami can go on for a number of days, as per family tradition. So, on the second day, the ladies usually wake up early to make a paste out of rice flour, and imprint footsteps coming towards their door. 


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

This symbolises Krishna’s footsteps into his foster home. The ‘Dahi Handi’ ceremony also takes place later on this day. It consists of a clay pot being filled with milk, dry fruits and ghee, hung up on a rope above the ground. Many form a human pyramid to break the pot, and the people around throw water on them, trying to stop them. Many believe that a broken piece from this pot will keep away negative powers.

BHAGAVATAM – Lord Krishna’s Birth

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.

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.

TRANSLATION
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.

TRANSLATION
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

kara-nyāsa tata kuryād

TRANSLATION
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.
TEXTS 8–10

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

o harir vidadhyān mama sarva-rakā
nyastāghri-padma patagendra-pṛṣṭhe

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.
TEXT 14

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.
TEXT 16

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

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.
TEXT 19

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.
TEXT 20

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 club in the hand of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, you produce sparks of fire as powerful as thunderbolts, and you are extremely dear to the Lord. I am also His servant.

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 the glorification of the transcendental name, form, qualities and paraphernalia of the Supreme Personality of Godhead protect us from the influence of bad planets, meteors, envious human beings, serpents, scorpions, and animals like tigers and wolves. 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.
TEXT 30

TRANSLATION

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

yathā hi bhagavān eva

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.

TEXTS 32–33

yathaikātmyānubhāvānā

sadā sarvatra sarva-ga
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
satyenānena
 māṁ devaḥ

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. May the Lord cover their influence by His own transcendental influence. May Nṛsiṁhadeva protect us in all directions and in all corners, above, below, within and without.

TEXT 40


gaganān nyapatat sadya

TEXT 41


śrī-śuka uvāca

yo dhārayati cādta
ta namasyanti bhūtāni

TRANSLATION
Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī said: My dear MahārājaParīkṣit, one who employs this armor or hears about it with faith and veneration when afraid because of any conditions in the material world is immediately freed from all dangers and is worshiped by all living entities.

TEXT 42


etā vidyām adhigato
viśvarūpāc chatakratu
trailokya-lak bubhuje
vinirjitya mdhe ’surān

TRANSLATION
King Indra, who performed one hundred sacrifices, received this prayer of protection from Viśvarūpa. After conquering the demons, he enjoyed all the opulences of the three worlds.

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.”

The construction of the temple took two years. In the meantime, the Maharaja Ranbir Singh had fallen ill. He, therefore, asked his younger brother, Raja Ram Singh to perform the inauguration ceremony of the temple.
But due to time and circumstances, it was too not acceptable to the fate of Raja Ram singh. In spite of the best efforts, Shiva linga could not be placed in the vedi .

Secrets of Saturn transit : A moral story, Saturn transit in Zodiac of Jupiter – Lessons of Life and time – Transit of Saturn in Guru Zodiac for 2.5 hours.


Saturn transit in Zodiac of Jupiter – Lessons of Life and time – Transit of Saturn in Guru Zodiac for 2.5 hours.
After King Vikram Aditya Learned lesson of his life from the Wrath of the greatest planet Saturn, he received boon too.

Later King said to shani Dev , ‘I only wish that you will have mercy and not give any more trouble to the mankind. I have suffered a lot but rest of the people cannot bear suffering the way I suffered.

That’s the only thing I am asking as a boon from you, Shanidev!

Shanidev said, ’I may have troubled you a lot, but you should see how much more trouble I caused to Gurudev. As compared to Gurudev’s trouble, your trouble will look insignificant.

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

Listen also to the stories about how I troubled gods and the demons.’One morning, I bowed down to Gurudev. Then I requested to him with my folded hands, ’Please accept me in your zodiac sign for next seven and half years.’ So, Gurudev said, ‘Please do not come into my zodiac sign at all.’ Then I told him, ‘You do not like me, and you want to avoid me.

In fact, no body wants me! So please let me be with you for at least five years, or (perhaps) for at least two and half years’ But Gurudev still refused me.

So, I told him boldly, ‘One should respect Gurudev and not trouble him, since Gurudev protects like a mother! Those who do not respect Gurudev will surely go to abyss (To the bottom).

So, I bowed down to Gurudev and requested him, ‘Ask me anything as I am pleased with you!’ So Gurudev said to me again, ‘I am asking you not to bother me!’ So I was pleased with

him and said, ‘I will be in your zodiac sign for only fifteen hours (seven and half ‘Prahars’) and you cannot refuse me now!’ So finely, Gurudev agreed that Shanidev could be in his

zodiac sign for two and half hours. Gurudev thought and boasted that he would spend this period of two and half hours just by taking bath in the river and then praying the gods ( This prayer is called “Sandhya” by The Marathi poet Tatyaji Mahapati ) so Shanidev would be helpless and there would be no harm to him! Then Shanidev knew what Gurudev was thinking. So Shanidev decided to show his miraculous power.

As it was the right time, for Shani, Guru became eager to take a bath in the river Ganga. Guru was then under the shadow of Shani and Guru’s appearance changed.

Shanidev appeared as a monk and offered Guru two cantaloupe fruits. Gurudev gladly accepted those two cantaloupe fruits, put them in his bag and gave the monk two coins in return. And, Gurudev kept on going forward towards a city.

It so happened that day, the prince and the minister’s son of that city had gone for hunting and did not return home for lunch. More than two hours passed and still there was no trace of the prince and the minister’s son.

So, King Bhrugu sent his servants to search for them beyond the borders of the city. The servants saw Guru in the Brahmin’s dress with the bag containing two cantaloupe fruits.

That time Shanidev turned those fruits into two human heads. The king’s servants saw Guru, the Brahmin and asked him, ‘What do you have in your bag?’ So the Brahmin (Guru) said, ‘I have two fruits that I will eat them later.’ The servants said, ‘But, there is blood dripping from your bag. So, we don’t care whether you are a Brahmin or a low caste person.

Show us immediately what is in your bag.’ As soon as Guru saw that indeed there was blood on his bag, he was scared. The servants snatched the bag from the Brahmin and opened to see that there were two heads belonging to the missing prince and his friend.

So they scolded the Brahmin, ‘You do not have remorse

in killing these two kids mercilessly like a cruel demon. You have committed this heinous act, unworthy for a Brahmin.’

So they shackled the Brahmin and while beating him brought in front of King Bhrugu. When King Bhrugu heard the news about his son, he fainted and said, ‘Oh God! I lost my only son.

This Brahmin who killed my son is like a death messenger. So he must be punished by the death penalty and must be executed by hanging him on the sharp pointed iron pillar out side the city limits immediately.’

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

There was lot of commotion when the news about the prince’s death spread in the palace of King Bhrugu; it is difficult to write the details of the commotion for the fear of expanding this story. Any way, the prince’s wife decided to leap into fire out of grief as per the custom of those days. And she was prepared to do this self-immolation (sati, an act of self-sacrifice to burn in the pyre).

Mean while the servants took the Brahmin to the sharp pointed iron pillar for the execution. The Brahmin became restless and could not think any thing but his bad luck. He requested the servants, ‘Please wait a while for the execution. I will give you ten thousand rupees if, you wait for couple of hours.’

The servants felt compassion when they heard the Brahmin’s plea and decided to wait for couple of hours. By this time the limit of two and half hours set by Shanidev was over. The prince and his companion came riding the horse where the execution was about to take place. They knew what might have happened so they ordered the servants not to execute the Brahmin and bring him back to the king.

The Brahmin blessed the king and then he explained him everything (about the events). The king felt sorry and said, ‘I would have committed a great crime by giving your execution

order without knowing the full details. I would be the greatest sinner due to the ignorance and the ego of my royal power (Rajmad). So please forgive me.’

And he started to cry. ‘ Then he honored Gurudev by giving him and other Brahmins feast with gifts of clothes and ornaments. So Guru said that this happened due to the curse of Shanidev. Then he opened his bag and indeed there were two cantaloupes.

Then Shanidev came near Gurudev and asked him how it went so far. So Guru replied,’ In just two and half hours, you have ruined me. I cannot imagine what would have happened if you had full seven and half years to ruin me! Though I am the highest-ranking planet, you have indeed obliged me. In fact, you are the greatest planet.

However, whatever happened, happened for good! So please do not trouble any body any more.’

So Shani said, ‘One should not brag and blow his own horns. I will trouble the person who brags about himself. Gurudev, you boasted and so I had to act like this. Please forgive me for my act.’

Moral of the Story is one should not boast his proud and ego even he is very much knowledgeable like guru or very much wealthy or rich like Ambani’s. This pennies and fake Status has no value and no cost in front of time.Time and karma always teaches lesson in the form of Saturn transits on different zodiacs. Its the high time to learn higher lessons of life, wisdom, philosophies and higher knowledge when Saturn will move in Sign of Sagittarius after 26th of January 2017.
