World No Tobacco Day – Prernamurti Bharti Shriji

WHO’s slogan for this year’s World No Tobacco Day is “Get ready for plain packaging” and in a statement released Tuesday, it said: “Plain packaging is an important demand reduction measure that reduces the attractiveness of tobacco products, restricts use of tobacco packaging as a form of tobacco advertising and promotion, limits misleading packaging and labelling, and increases the effectiveness of health warnings. Plain packaging of tobacco products refers to measures that restrict or prohibit the use of logos, colours, brand images or promotional information on packaging other than brand names and product names displayed in a standard colour and font style.”

According to WHO, about 6 million people die every year from tobacco-related illnesses. About 5 million die from direct tobacco use, and more than 600,000 deaths are caused by second-hand smoke.

 Instant Inspiration 6

Wherever you see flowers, you naturally get attracted towards them.Isn’t it? You feel good while looking at the flowers. Where flowers bloom, you can’t stop yourselves from looking at them.You naturally get attracted towards them and adore them.There is so much of beauty around…!!

Similarly, if your heart is also blossoming with the flowers of virtues, the attraction of people towards you increases naturally.Everybody gets attracted towards you naturally.Not only that, even God gets pleased with the fragrance of your virtues.God comes running towards one whose heart is blossoming with the flowers of virtues.

These flowers are not red to attract your attention immediately.Neither is it lily to attract with its fragrance.So, it is neither red in color nor lily, it neither contains any color nor any fragrance; even then these flowers are so beautiful.They look beautiful, don’t they?

Their life is very short. If they are plucked from the tree, they can’t survive for more than 2 hours.Even if they are on the tree itself, even then their life span is not more than 2 days.Can’t you be virtuous like these flowers at least even after being a human; so that your virtues attract someone, your aroma attracts God?This plant, full of flowers, looks so lovely.

Similarly, if you want to become aromatic, you want to become lily; then naturally your fragrance will spread in all the directions.If your heart is red with the virtues, then you become eligible for the worship of Lord Ganesha.Even if there is no color, like the white flowers; still they are flowers only.The flowers of virtues naturally attract everyone.

Hence, you should instill virtues like that of white flowers at least within you.You will do it I suppose, won’t you ?At least this much is expected out of you…!!

Prernamurti Bharti Shriji teaches us while living in this materialistic world one should always take shelter of spiritual discourses and wisdom of Bhagwad Gita so that one can attain enlightment.

Efforts Attain Highest State of Wisdom

Arjuna says, I don’t want to fight, as there are big warriors in front of me and in their comparison, I am not so.

Then Lord Krishna said,

                      taktwa hriday duryabalyam uttishth param tapa.

 Meaning that, keep aside the weakness of your heart and do your  karma. Srimad Bhagwad Gita never teaches that, you abandon your duties and work and be dependent on your destiny. Whatever lord will give, I will accept, NO…..

 In Yoga Vashishtha MahaRamayana (famous Hindu Scripture), it is written, that

 “O’ Lord Rama ! The one who always remain dependent on the destiny and resists one self from doing karma,  is a coward, & the one who does purusharth (efforts) is blessed with enlightenment. Here efforts win, not the destiny. Even destiny is made out of efforts. A farmer was ploughing a field, suddenly a bird collided with the plough , he caught & sold the bird. He thought the amount  which i gained by farming  for so many days, can be gained just by selling a bird. Hence from today onwards,no farming just selling the birds. No, everyday he would go to the field and waited for a bird to collide, and in this manner waited for long , but thereafter ,neither a bird collided nor he could sell & earn money. Many people become happy by incidental profits, “Today is sorrow, Tomorrow will be happiness”. Dont wait for incidental profits, do efforts. Doing work is your duty and rewarding for that is the duty of God. 

                           Uddeme na sidhhyanti karyani na manorathayi,

                           nahi suptasya sinhasya pravishyanti mukhe mriga.

meaning  that , if a  lion opens his mouth and keep sitting with the  expectation that a deer will enter his mouth automatically ,then lion is mistaken. Similarly, If you want to eat chapatti and the flour , roller , chapati board as well as vegetables are near you,  efforts have to be put in by you, so that your stomach gets filled. Therefore, one should always perform duties . Bhagvad Gita says that one who coordinates his work, knowledge and devotion, remains detached to materialistic world even though living in it. Just as Lotus grows into the water but remains unaffected by water. Like tongue remains inside your mouth, tastes lot of Ghee, Oil and butter but never becomes lube, similarly, while living in this materialistic world one should always take shelter of spiritual discourses and wisdom of Bhagwad Gita so that one can attain enlightment.

Bhai Dooj—- Prernamurti Bharti Shriji

IMG_7443

Bhai dooj is a festival of mutual love and affection between brother & sister. It is also known as Yamaa dvitiya. There is one tale related to it :- Once, on the day of kartik shukla dvitiya, Yamraja reached his sister Yamuna’s(the holy river) house. Yamuna did a hearty & warm welcome of her brother. She prepared various delicious dishes for her brother and applied a tilak on his forehead. Yamraja was overwhelmed by his sisters welcome and he gifted many things to his sister. When He was leaving, He requested Yamuna to ask for a wish. Yamuna on seeing him requesting ,said: ‘Brother ! If you really want me to ask for a wish, then bless me with the wish that every year on this day you will come to my house and will accept my welcome. Similarly, every brother who will to his sister’s house on this day and accepts her welcome and gives her gifts and all, he never has to face the fear from you.

          Yama accepted Yamuna’s request and from that day on, this festival of Bhai dooj is being celebrated. The main objective behind this festival is, that strong bond of love & affection between brother & sister remains forever.

 

Rituals of the Day

                   The sister on this day, while applying tilak to her brother must  think with strong determination that ‘May my brother’s wisdom arise’. Pray to God Yamraja for your brother’s longer life and pray to your Guru & God for your brother’s welfare and progress. Then remember eight immortals- Markandey, Bali, Vyasa, Hanumana, Vibhishina, krupacharya, Ashwathama, Parshurama, and sprinkle rice over your brother and with soulful feeling ”May my brother become strong and immortal.” The brother should too sprinkle some rice and pray ‘ May my sister have a strong character, She should be fully secured from all evils, she should spend her life with fearlessness and not under some pressures or fears’.

 

– Wake up before sunrises, One who keps sleeping after sunrise is responsible for the destruction of his own wealth.

– Everyday offer salutatiom to Sun God. This helps in developing one’s health, mind and radiance.

– Offer food to mother cow. This helps in eliminating domestic evils. So everyday keep aside first byte of food for Cow.

– Offer grains to birds everyday for prosperity in your house.

– Do as much service as one can to the poor along with God’s Naam Japa and listening to the mythological stories.

– Worship the Peeple and Basil tree and light a diya near them.

– Keep aside 1/10th part of your income for charitable deeds. This gives you happiness while in this world and after the world and makes one wealthy too.

– While cooking roti (wheat bread), don’t throw the flour spilled near by. Mix some sugar into it and offer it to the ants. This way, you will make best use of it and would prove to be meritorious.

– The human body has been designed to intake vegetarian food only. When we kill & eat innocent animals ,we eat the fear, pain, sorrow within them which entered into them at the time of killing them, so one must eat vegetarian food only.

– Tea, Coffee is harmful for the health. Instead of that, have cow’s milk .

– All the drugs like Gutka, Tabacco, Liquor etc. are the causes of life taking diseases like cancer. Therefore, stay away from the addictions and motivate others too for this.

Sacred Diwali Message

          Lighten up yourself internally alongwith external light!

Its important to clean your internal self besides cleaning up your house. As long as there is the darkness in the disguise of evils and lack of knowledge, the man is considered to be blind inspite of having eyes.

          The way you decorate your house with new and attractive things on the day of diwali, buy new clothes and colour your house, same way throw out your weakness, evil thoughts and vices and get virtues like happiness, peace, satisfaction, forgiveness and decorate your inner self.

          At some places sweets are being taken during the whole year, not only this, but the eatables etc. get rotten without even using them and at the same time there are places where the children crave for one piece of sweet on diwali day. There can be seen plates full of different dishes in some houses and there are places too where  children sleep empty stomach. Somewhere new clothes are being bought and some don’t even have enough clothes to cover their bodies.

          So start your Diwali by lightning a diya at some house where there is not a single diya is being lit. Your heart will glitter too and the happiness you will get will definitely be more than celebrating diwali at your own house.

          You must follow the tips given to gain wealth but be careful that Goddess laxmi in disguise of wealth will arrive & leave as per your destiny but Goddess laxmi which belongs to Lord Vishnu is the giver of Divine virtues. If one achieves that, then material wealth will hardly matter if it stays or leaves. If you actually want a happy, healthy and contented life, then follow spiritualism. Diwali conveys message that wealth is unstable, people die for wealth but the wealth doesn’t even ask once while it leaves “Shall I go?” Therefore, considering wealth as unpredictable and unreliable, take God’s name, do Japa , listen to Spiritual discourses and decorate your inner self with peace, satisfaction & live at par.

          May the inner light glitter and eliminates inner darkness

          May the new year is filled with new thoughts!

 

                 Have a great Year Ahead!!

Lightning of diyas in the darkest night of new moon (Amavasya) is the festival of Diwali. Diwali is the most important of all the festivals of India.

‘Our Scriptures Skandapurana , Padmapurana and Bhavishyapurana’ have different beliefs with regard to celebrating the festival of Diwali.

A series of diyas had been lit to welcome Lord Rama for his victory over Demon Ravana. From that day onwards, this festival is being celebrated.

According to Puranas, Churning of Sea took place on this day and Goddess Laxmi had appeared. The incarnation day of Goddess Laxmi is celebrated as ‘Deep utsav’. The great epic ‘Mahabharata’ says that the safe return of Pandavas from exile was being celebrated with the series of diyas to welcome them. Diwali has been related to this episode too. It is also believed that king Prithvi did ‘Prithvi Dohar’ and had made the country prosperous, Diwali is being celebrated from that day. Whatever the reason may be, it is clear that the objective behind celebrating Diwali is prosperity, happiness, victory, wealth , health and development.

                                                               Rituals of the Day

Wake up early in the morning and take bath with seven grains scrub paste(ubtan) i.e. wheat, Jau, rice, gram, moong, udad & sesame. This benefits you with both health & virtues. Put some of this paste and sunflower oil in a bowl of water and give salutation of Sun God. Then worship mother cow and apply a tilak of this paste. In the evening, make a ‘Swastik’ sign with turmeric near the main door of your house, office, shop etc. Worship this Swastik with flowers and rice and place 2 diyas of Ghee and 2 diyas of oil facing four directions.

Worshipping Goddess Laxmi on Diwali has special significance. On this day rich or poor, everybody worships Goddess Laxmi for wealth and tries to please Her.

To gain wealth, follow these steps

Clean your house and yourself first and keep the idol of Ganesha on the right side & Goddess Saraswati on the left side of Goddess laxmi. In the evening light diyas, wear yellow coloured clothes, apply kesar tilak and pour milk on the Goddess Laxmi’s silver coin with the feeling of bathing it. Therafter chant the mantra “Om shreem kleem Mahalakshmaya Namo Namah” for 108 times, offer 108 rose flowers and light 4 faced diya.

Make sure that this diya lightens for the whole night. After puja worshipping, chant the mantra “Om Namah Bhagyalaxmi chavidmahey Ashta laxmi cha dhimahi , Tanno Laxmi prachodyat”. On Swatik beed string do atleast 2 rounds of japa. This will eliminate poverty. Follow this procedure from the day of Diwali to Bhai dooj.

Where Does Goddess Laxmi Reside?

Once there was an old man who happened to be very rich. He was very well off, had all luxuries under the sun, but everybody knows the nature of Laxmiji.. its unstable, mobile and frivolous. One night the old rich man had a dream that one woman is going out of his house.

He asked her ‘O Goddess who are you? When did you come to my house and Why are you leaving this house and where are you going now?

Goddess said:- I’m the wealth of your house. I’ve been staying here for the past many generations but now the time has come for me to leave, that’s why I’m going back. I’m very happy with you as during my stay in your house you did best use of mine. You invited saints to your house and served them, provided food to the poor, did works like you made well & good ponds, Cow shelters and water systems. You did a lot of charitable works. Now since I’m going, I want to bless you with a wish, you can seek whatever you want.”

The old rich man said “I’ve got four daughter in laws, I will discuss with them and tell you. You please come tomorrow. The old man discussed with all of his daughter in Laws one of them told him to ask for food godowns, the other one suggested to ask for the lockers full of gold and silver. But the youngest daughter in law had come from a religious & cultured family. She used to attend the religious discourses since her childhood. She said to her father in Law: “Father if Laxmiji has decided to leave she will definitely leave and what ever we will ask from her, that is materialistic and will definitely leave us one day. If we’ll ask for Gold, silver, money etc. then our coming generations will spoil their lives in ego and lethargy. Therefore, you please tell Goddess laxmi that if SHE wishes to leave, must leave but bless us with the wish to serve saints , sages , devotion for God and that religious discourses always keep happening in our house and the mutual love & affection always remain present amongst our family members. So that the tough days passes through smoothly.

Next day, the rich man dreamt of Laxmiji and Laxmiji asked :- “Have you discussed with your daughter in laws? What do you want?

The rich man said “O Goddess Laxmi ! If you wish to leave , please leave happily but bless me with the boon that religious discourses and serving & worshipping of God & saints keep happiness in our house and there be present the mutual love and affection amongst our family members.”

Goddess Laxmi got surprised on hearing this and said, “What have you asked for ! The house where saints, sages are being respected and served, where religious discourses keep happening and there remains present mutual love & affection amongst family members, there resides the ‘Lord Narayna’ himself and where ‘Lord Vishnu’ resides, there I serve HIS lotus feet & I cannot leave that place even if, I wish to. You have forced me to stay here.

How to Keep Wealth Stable?

Everyone worships Goddess Laxmi for its stability but when wealth arrives, many evils like greed, anger, ego, lack of kindness etc takes place in man’s nature. And when these evils become stable within man’s personality, the unstable natured ‘Laxmi’ becomes more unstable. It has been said too that wealth has 16 virtues but 64 vices. But one who does good deeds, serve others, charity and does Naam Japa and uses his money for religious purposes, Lord Naraina remains happy with him and where Lord Vishnu is happy, Laxmiji becomes happy and stable.

Significance of Narak Chaturdashi(Day to Enlighten the evil with Divinity)– Prernamurti Bharti Shriji

Narak Chaturdashi

Narak Chaturdashi’(14th day of lunar fortnight of the Hindu month of Kartika)) is also known as kali chaudas’. According to ‘Puranas’ (Hindu Scriptures), on this day, Lord Krishna killed the demon ‘Narakasura’ and made the world overcome its fear from the demons. This festival is celebrated in remembrance of their victory.

Another tale says that in ‘Vamana Avtar’( incarnation ), Lord Vishnu measured the whole universe with one foot. Lord Vamana became very happy with the sacrifice and devotion of king Bali and asked for a boon.

Bali then prayed to God that ‘If any of the citizens of my kingdom worships ‘Yamraja ‘ on the three days i.e. ‘Kartik Krishna Tryodashi, Narak chaturdashi and Dipawali, he would not get any suffering by Yama and Goddess Laxmi would never leave his house.

Lord blessed him with the same, that whosoever will light diyas on these three days, Goddess Laxmi would never leave him.

Rituals of the Day

On this day , Goddess Laxmi resides in oil and Goddess Ganga resides in water. Therefore, one who gets up before the sun rises and does  oil massage and thereafter have bath, does not have the sight of ‘Yamloka (the hell)’. One who takes bath after sunrise and doesn’t offer diyas for Yamaraja after sunset has to suffer badly.

After taking bath wear fresh clothes, apply tilak on your forehead put some sesame seeds in a bowl full of water and stand facing south direction, chant the following mantra thrice and offer the water filled in your palm thrice and light a four cornered diya. This process is called auspicious Yama- Tarpan (offering to Yama). This destroys all the sins happened by you during the whole year.

Om Yamaye namah, Om Dharmarajae namah, Om mrutave namah

Om antkaye namah, Om vaivswataye namah, Om kaalaye namah

Om sarvbhukshaye namah, Om audumbarae namah,

Om dadhnaye namah, Om neelaye namah, Om parameshtine namah,     Om vrakkodrae namah, ,Om chitrae namah, Om chitraguptae  namah,         

On this day, light diyas everywhere like temples, kitchen, bathroom, and other auspicious trees like Basil, Banyan, Peepal, Amla, Mango etc, river banks, Garde & Cowsheds etc…

To please Goddess Laxmi chant “Om Shreem Hreem Kleem Kamalvasinye Swaha.” In the night make ‘kajal’(kohl) using mustard oil and pure ghee in a diya and apply it into your eyes. This improves eye sight and saves  from evil eyes.

“MAY THE WHOLE WORLD GLITTER”

The countries & communities which celebrate the maximum festivals are considered to be the most prosperous / developed ones. There is hardly any date or day left in “Indian Panchang”(Hindu Calendar) when there is no fast , festival or celebration. In India, there are celebrated around 80 festivals as important ones and they all are celebrated with a unique style which cannot be seen anywhere in the world or any culture.

Dipawali which is being celebrated on the occasion of victory of Lord Rama over the demon Ravana, conveys the message to us as to how to win our internal evils and enlighten our hearts with the lamp of wisdom/ knowledge. Everybody Knows that on the occasion of Diwali, the houses get cleaned, painted and the wastes are being thrown out, the houses are decorated and the diyas are lit.

Generally, this festival is a symbol of mutual love , affection , warmth & jubilation, but as per the directions given by our holy scriptures to celebrate Diwali, the style, culture and the objective behind it is unique and full of scientific reasons , which is helpful in our physical, mental & spiritual  growth.

So lets understand….how to make each day of  Diwali a happy one !!

DHANTERAS

The thirteenth day (of moon)(tryodashi) of kartik month – Krishna paksha is known as ‘DHANTERAS’. This belongs to both Yamaraja(God of Death) and Lord Dhanvantri

On this day the Deities & Demons did ‘Samudra Manthan’(Churning of Sea) and out of that Lord Dhanvantri had appeared with a vase full of medicines to cure all diseases. So, on the day of Dhanteras ‘HE’ is worshipped for a healthy & disease free life. On this day, buying of silver vessel is considered to be auspicious.

There is a story in ‘PadmaPurana’ related to this – Once the ‘Yamraja’  asked its messengers – “Do you ever feel pity or sorrow when you take life from the creatures on the earth (the mirtyuloka)” ?

The messenger said –“ Yes Lord!” when somebody dies before time, we feel very sad and distressed. Once we had to take life of a prince on the very fourth day of his wedding. At that time, when we saw the outcry , sorrow , screaming & screech, we hated ourselves and felt very bad.

 O’ Yamaraja! Please give us some solution so that no body dies before time.”

Yamraja on request said –“ Anybody who will offer diyas(lamps) on Dhanteras with this objective , will never die before time.

WHAT TO DO ON DHANTERAS

Get up early in the morning , have bath and wear fresh clothes, worship Lord Dhanvantri and pray for a healthy life . If the picture of Lord Dhanvantri is not available, then you can worship the picture of Lord Vishnu, having soulful feelings for Lord Dhanvantri. Then give Salutation to Sun God , offer red flowers to HIM and pray for health.

In the evening, put some rice , wheat grains and jaggery in a bowl and keep it near the main door. Stand facing south direction and say “ I am offering diyas for Lord Yamraja , He along with the Goddess Shyama bless me”

Then keep the lighted diyas on those grains and chant the following mantras along with offering flowers & scents:-

Mrutyunaa paash hasten kaalen bharyayaa seh!

Tryodashyaam deepdaanat suryajah priyataamiti !!

Pray to Goddess  Lakshmi(goddess of wealth) with the objective of gaining wealth by chanting the following mantra :-

Om namah bhagyalakshami ch vidmahe!

Ashta lakshami ch dhimahi, tanno lakshami prachodayaat !!
