Independence Day–Prernamurti Bharti Shriji

independance-day

Today is 15 th August, our 70 th Independence Day. India got Independence from British Rule on this Day, that’s why we celebrate this Day. So, Congratulations to all our Brothers & Sisters! No doubt ,we do got freedom but that’s only physical , our mind is still highly impressed and influenced with the systems & culture of West. That means we are still facing mental slavery. We express our happiness when we host our National flag… Our Tiranga..but if you try to peep within, you will find that you have not completely come out from the slavery of West.

Our very own Indian culture, colorful festivals, religion, norms & spirituality hold a very high stature and is capable of giving the ultimate peace, happiness, prosperity to the humanity at large, still we are following Western culture and running blindly after something which has no destination. We should think about it and must abandon those thoughts which force us to look down at our own rich culture. The day we shall be able to do this, that would be our Independence Day in true sense.

So, lets resolve today, that we will have respect for our own culture, country, religion, our Saints & Sages, and also that we shall not allow the Western Culture to have adverse impact on our minds. Actually, that would bethe day of Independent India & Independent Indian.

We feel very proud that we are born on this “Dev Bhoomi”, where, in all the eras, the Saints, Sages & God took incarnations and directed mankind towards the Spiritual path which is the ultimate goal of every human being.

You too feel proud about it and free your mind, intellect , thoughts from slavery of bondages and host the flag of Independence within your liberated soul.

HAPPY FLAG HOSTING

Significance of Putrada Ekadashi​ – Prernamurti Bharti Shriji

putrada-ekadashi

Once upon a time, King Mahijeet was benevolently and dutifully ruling in Mahishmati Nagari (City). People were very happy in his kingdom. Even then the king was not happy because he didn’t have any son. Once he told his people – “You are similar to my children but still I don’t have any child of my own. This fact makes me sad. I gave alms to deities and Brahmans. I never ever took money which someone else deserves.

King told his people that – “I have neither committed any sin nor did I earn wealth by injustice. I have always nurtured my people like my own children. I have followed all the rules of etiquettes. Then for which deed am I getting this punishment of not having any offspring?” After listening to this, everyone including the king’s Purohits (family priests) andwell-wishers, started looking for a solution to this. While chasing for a solution, luckily they met rishi Lomash in some forest.

Looking at the people, rishi Lomash asked them the reason for approaching. Theysaid – “Our King is very Kind. He nourished us like his own children. He is very sad due to Childlessness. Thus, it is our duty to make our king happy. Maharaja, please provide some solution through which our King can get a son.” Lomash rishi was Trikal Gyani (omniscient). He meditated for a while , saw the past of King and told them –“Your King was a Vaishya in past who used to exploit human beings, drink their blood. This Vaishya used to do business by wandering from one town to another. On the day of Jyeshtha Shukla Dashami tithi (10 th day of Shukla Paksha of Jyeshtha month), he was thirsty and went near a lake to drink water where a calf also came along with her mother cow to drink water. But to quench his own thirst, he ignored thirst of the calf and threw the calf out of lake along with mother cow. Because of this sin, King was suffering from the pain of childlessness in this birth and due to some Punya (Good deeds) in the past, he got an empire.

Now people asked Lomash rishi – “Prabhu, you are omnipresent. Please tell us what shall we do so that our King gets a son.” Lomash rishi said – “Putrada Ekadashi of Shravana Shukla Paksha helps to get a son. One who desires a child, should duly observe fast on Putrada Ekadashi. All of you, on behalf of your king, observe fast, do Jagran (all-night vigil), do Kirtan of name of Lord Narayan. Then due to this Punya (all the good deeds done on Putrada Ekadashi), your king will get a son." People duly observed fast on Putrada Ekadashi as guided by rishi Lomash and consecrated the Punya to their King. After a few days , Queen became pregnant and gave birth to a healthy child.

That’s why, You all observe fast on all the Ekadashi’s and also motivate others to do it.

Significance of Nirjala Ekadashi – Prernamurti Bharti Shriji

Nir-jala means water-less or without water and the fasting on Nirjala Ekadashi is observed without water or any type of food. Due to its strict fasting rules, Nirjala Ekadashi fast is the toughest amongst all Ekadashi fasts. However if observed religiously, it is one of the most rewarding occasion. Staunch Vishnu devotees undertake this fast, and they do not drink water or consume any food while fasting on this day. The fast begins on Ekadasi sunrise and ends on next day (Dwadasi) sunrise. It is believed that observing Nirjala Ekadashi is also equal to going on pilgrimage. People believe that observers of this fast, after death, are received by messengers from Vaikunta, abode of Vishnu and not by Yama, the god of death.Those who are not able to follow the other twenty four Ekadashi fasting in a year must observe a fast on Nirjala Ekadashi. It is believed that observing a single fast on Nirjala Ekadashi bestows the blessings and benefits of all twenty four Ekadashi fasting in a year.

When is Nirjala Ekadashi 2016? & The Legend of Nirjala Ekadashi

In the year 2016, Nirajala Ekadashi falls on 16th June. Nirjala Ekadashi is also known as Pandava Bhima Ekadashi or Bhimseni or Pandava Nirjala Ekadashi or Bhima Ekadashi, based on the legend of Bhima, the second and strongest of the five Pandava brothers. Based on the story from Brahma Vaivarta Purana, it is said that Bhima wanted to keep all ekadashi fasts, but being a lover of food, he could control his hunger. His entire family of four brothers, Yudhishthir, Arjuna, Nakul and Sahadeva, along with their wife Draupadi and mother Kunti, used to observe the Ekadashi fast without fail. He was scared of dishonoring Lord Vishnu, for whom the fast is observed, hence, he approached sage Vyasa for a solution. Sage Vyasa advised Bhima to observe Nirjala Ekadashi, once a year and this way he can attain the virtue of all 24 ekadashis. As per this Nirjala ekadasi story, one is able to get the benefits of all Ekadasis by observing one Nirjala Ekadasi. Benefits – Devotees who are unable to observe all twenty fours Ekadashi fasting in a year should observe single Nirjala Ekadashi fast as  fasting on Nirjala Ekadashi brings all benefits of twenty four Ekadashi fasting in a year.

There seemed to be drastic changes within villagers and they wished to quit addiction from their lives such as smoking, chewing tobacco etc. Their boundless joy and satisfied eyes were the proof of what they got from Shriji’s presence as there had been no one in their village like Shriji who had visited them to know their well being. They carried the things got in charity on their heads and left for their homes with extremely contented hearts.

Shanichari Amavasya – Prernamurti Bharti Shriji

Shani Amavasya in year 2016 is on June 04. Shani is a Hindi word for the name of Saturn. In Hindu culture, Amavasya Day is not considered auspicious for initiating any good or important work or performing any sacred pooja function. However, this particular ‘Shani Amavasya’ is the only day that is regarded auspicious for performing any custom, rituals of fair traditions; except the other ones. This sacred day often comes one, two or very few times in a year. In both, Vedic Astrology and Hindu Mythology, planet Saturn is one the very powerful celestial body in Universe. For Hindu people, Saturn is Lord Shani who is depicted with black complexion. In many places of India, it can be noticed that people donate mustard oil to please Lord Shani. The person under influence of Shani Dasha or Saturn period must worship Lord Shani especially during Shani Amavasya. It is acknowledged that worshiping Lord Shani during Saturdays or on the day of Shani Amavasya help natives to reduce evil effects of planet Saturn. Saturn is very powerful and influencing planet. It can be both ‘malefic’ and ‘benefic’. If this planet is benefic then the native will definitely receive abundant prosperity and fortune in life. Many difficult tasks automatically be accomplished by the grace of Lord Shani. But, if this planet is not favourable in one’s horoscope, the native will certainly experience delays, difficulties, and types of different problems. Such person should not avoid worshipping Lord Shani on Saturday or especially on the day of Shani Amavasya. Remedies for Saturn can also be applied to reduce malefic effect of this planet.

What is Shani Amavasya?

It has already been mentioned above that ‘shani amavasya’ is a sacred day that comes when new- moon day is noticed particularly on Saturday. It is the only day that is considered favorable for bringing fortune and prosperity. However, Amavasya of all months are only considered for Shradh pooja or trapan to offer to dead ancestors and forefathers. But, Shani Amavasya is considered very favorable to perform sharadh pooja for forefathers. People who are facing obstacles or many difficulties in life and are not finding proper remedies can follow rituals and customs to delight Lord Shani on the day of Shani Amavasya. Therefore, Shani Amavasya 2016 is an auspicious day for Shradh 2016.

What can be done on Shani Amavasya?

However Shani Amavasya is said to be a propitious day for Hindu devotees, especially to perform ‘shradh’ or ‘trapan’ to dead ancestors, this day is also not auspicious to begin other auspicious work like expansion of new venture of business and so on. But it is sure that worshiping Lord Shani on this day certainly bestows the devotee immense blessings of this deity.

Why is Shivaratri Celebrated?

Each Hindu festival is associated with many beliefs and mythologies, so is the holy day of Shivaratri. One belief says that Shivaratri is celebrated to commemorate the day when Lord Shiva consumed the deadly poison, which came out during Samudra Manthan (churning of the ocean) Whereas, according to another belief, it is the day when Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati got married.


Let’s know the legend of Samudra Manthan in detail.
The legend of Samudra Manthan is the reason as to why Shivaratri is celebrated. It is said that once the devas (Gods) and asuras (devils) were churning the ocean of milk. During the churning process, several things came out of the ocean. Among all those things were a pot of poison. The poison had the potential to destroy the universe, which frightened the devas (Gods) and asuras (devils). To seek help, they ran to Lord Shiva, the Lord of destruction. Lord Shiva, in order to save the universe from the deadly effect of poison, swallowed it 
but held it in His throat. This act resulted in Lord Shiva’s throat turning blue, for which he earned the name ‘Nilkantha’. To celebrate this event of Lord Shiva, Shivaratri is celebrated.

Masik Shivaratri Significance For Women

Throughout the country, the occasion of Shivaratri holds prime importance for the married women as well as young girls. On this day, women observe fast and worship Lord Shiva for the welfare of their husband and sons. Unmarried girls on the other hand observe fast and pray to Lord Shiva for a right match.

 Story Behind Apara Ekadashi 

A story has been mentioned about Apara Ekadashi in the religious scriptures. According to this story, there was a King named Mahidhwaj. His younger brother, Bajradhwaj, was not religious and was cunning. Bajradhwaj did not like his elder brother and was jealous of him. One night, he killed the King and buried his body beneath a Pipal tree..
The spirit of the King started residing on the Pipal tree.  The people in the surrounding places were terrified of this. One day, a saint named Dhaumya was passing by and talked to the restless spirit. He preached the spirit by his wisdom talk  and the spirit got down from the tree. The saint asked the King’s spirit to observe a fast on Apara Ekadashi in order to rest in peace. Hence, the King fasted and  as a result, attained liberation…

FROM THE RAREST OF RARE SATSANG EXTRACTS FROM OUR REVERED H.H. MAIYA JI’S BOOK ‘GYAN KI GEHRAI’ (THE DEPTH OF WISDOM)

Devotee: Maiyaji, What should a sadhak abandon?

Maiya: EGO

 

Devotee: What should a sadhak adapt?

Maiya : Bhakti(devotion for God).

 

Devotee: Maiya, is doing Mala Japa(japa on a beed string) for the whole day, called Sadhna?

Maiya:   No. Being careful or alert is Sadhna. You do only 10 mala japa once a day but must go into the depth of your Guru Mantra(mantra given by Spiritual Master), that you don’t have the idea of happenings around you. It should not happen that you are just moving your fingers on mala for the whole day, but your mind and heart are roaming somewhere else. Whatever you do , do wholeheartedly.

Devotee: Maa, why do we need a mala for japa? Why can’t we do it without mala?

Maiya : If one has the capacity to do japa without mala, its good. But our chitta (heart) is always so restless, that it needs to be tied down with something. Moreover, if you will do japa without mala then you will be surrounded by sleep. Our chitta needs some base to be tied with. Therefore, it is necessary to do japa with a mala.
