In Pujya Shriji shows a new path to wanderers like us who are getting heated by the heat of this world.
>
> She makes us realize the necessity of saints in the form of Sheetal Chhaya (Cool Shade) in our lives.
>
> So let us try to walk on this path so that we can experience the real peace and calmness.

> Pujya Shriji states :
>
> “ Like a wanderer gets tired after continuously walking on the pathway where hot sunlight , thirst, etc  trouble him a lot. If that wanderer gets a cool shade of some dense tree then for him at that time there is nothing more pleasant then the cool shade.
>
> So like the wanderer after getting tired, feels relaxed after sitting under the cool shade of dense tree,  similarly saints are the cool shade of the tree, where people are tired after running in the world. Because this world itself is such that it makes one tired.
>
> For those tried, disappointed people; saints become a Taruvar (tree). In the shade of this taruvar, everybody quenches their thirst, becomes healthy, peaceful  and gets liberated. “

Hinduism, it is believed that Saints have developed spiritually to the point where they can lead others to liberation (moksha), or give them access to spiritual states either in this life, or after death. These teachers are believed to have special abilities, such as the capacity to give darshan (a transfer of blessings or spiritual power from guru to disciple via glance or mantra). In addition, some Saints are said to be able to enter a disciple’s dreams to give teachings or initiation. Sometimes the Saints gaze can cause a profound spiritual experience. Many disciple claim to sense a spiritual atmosphere around their teacher which affects their moods and perceptions in positive ways. Hence SAINTS  are considered to be the relieved shelters of society and therefore need to be respected.

The Saint may attain the status of a living Saints, and therefore embodies the highest ideals of the individual and culture.Saints demonstrates the reality of spiritual awareness, and shows how it can help and uplift the society with their good deeds. In many cases, the Saints is considered to be an avatar, which means incarnation of a god. Saints sometimes attain a degree of honor and respect that approaches that of a god. This is because like a god, the true Saints has the power and wisdom to help the disciple cross the ocean of suffering to reach a state of spiritual freedom, or a heavenly paradise..  Saints uplift any individual who provides the right conditions through mental discipline, spiritual practice, devotion, and positive actions in previous lives.

Shivling puja – Prernamurti Bharti Shriji

Shivling pujan titleWorship of Lord Shiva removes distress and poverty, grants learning and wealth, bestows all desires. It also gives the devotee transcendental knowledge, by elevating the power of thought and en-kindling the light of discrimination.(sc)

Lord Shiva is the unchanging consciousness or the soul in man. Parvati is the maya sakthi or the illusive power that appears as mind and matter.Syllable `sh’ means permanent bliss, `I’ stands for male energy, `va’ stands for female energy.(sc)

Vedas declare that worshiping Shiva in the linga form helps one gain highest merit in this life and in the future lifetimes. Accumulated sins of many lifetimes get washed away by sincere devotion and prayers to the lord.(sc)

It is said that nothing is as holy as Shiva puja.Shivling and shivpuja connects a devotee with the Supreme Being – Lord Shiva. The linga is the symbol of Lord Shiva and the linga puja helps the devotee in understanding Lord Shiva. The Lord cannot be described but still we say he is without a beginning and an end and is without a form. It is difficult for a devotee to understand this formless nature. Therefore Lord Shiva appeared in the form of Jyotirlinga before Brahma and Vishnu. The Linga thus is a symbol of Lord Shiva. Each Linga puja, step by step, takes the devotee to the eternal truth – that they are part of the Supreme Being.(sc)

Before starting the Puja, the devotee takes a bath and wear freshly washed clothes. Hymns praising Lord Shiva or the mantra ‘om namaha shivayaa’ are repeated to create a mood for worship. Then, the devotee sits in front of the linga and blows conch or ring bells. This indicates the beginning of the Puja.(sc)
The shivling should be first offered Panchamrit, which is a mixture of milk, ganga jal, saffron, sugar/honey and water.First it is the panchamrit abhishek – the libation of five holy liquids over the linga. The libation can consist of any five of the following – water from river Ganga, honey, sugarcane juice, milk, yogurt, ghee, seawater, coconut water or milk, fragrant oils, rose water or other precious liquids. Usually, only milk of cow is used. While pouring the liquid, om namah shivaya is uttered. Some devotees utter the Lord’s name 108 times and some 1008 times. (sc)
After the panchamrit abhishek, the linga is cleaned with water from Ganga. (This is might not be possible always so just normal water.) After this the linga is smeared with sandalwood paste and is decked with flowers. Water and sandalwood paste is used to keep the linga cool, as Lord Shiva is always in a highly inflammable state. In some Shiva temples, cooling liquid constantly drops from pot hung above the Linga.(sc)
Next, sweets, coconut and fruits are offered to the Lord. Camphor and incense are lit and ‘arati’ is conducted. Some devotees fan the linga and sing praises of the lord.(sc)
Finally, ringing of bells or blowing of conch indicates the end of Puja. White ash (vibhuti) is rubbed on the forehead and it is also distributed. Fruits, sweets and coconut are distributed as ‘prasad.’(sc)
The main importance of  Shivalinga are as follows –
1-  Shivaling is god shiva himself. Worshipping Daily and offering Bel   leaves,Pushpa(flower) and snan ,Pleases and makes mahadev(god shiva) happy.(sc)
2 –  Shivaling is supreme god of universe,all god and goddess worship god shiva  to please god shiva,there is no difference between god shiva and shivling.(sc)
3 – Any one who worship god shiva in Shivaling form attains importance of life,hence one will attains good health.(sc)
4- Shivaling worship in home and temple daily attains prosperity,good health and there is residential of all god/goddess in that bless home.(sc)
5 – Shivaling is only Supreme god of universe,who wash and removes all sin and mistake done in past,present life.We should make happy god shiva by chanting god shiva different mantra,offering daily flower to god shiva in temple.(sc)
6- Worshipping Shivaling in home and establishing in temple helps to attains mukti/Moksha(Salvation) ,one will attains free from life cycle of trouble who even  do darshan god shiva as Shivaling form.(sc)
Never use a kumkum tilak for the shivling, although the devotees can use it for the idols of goddess Parvati and Lord Ganesha.(sc)
One enjoys good fortune of Shiva Yoga in a horoscope, when the lord of the 10th house is in the 5th house, the lord of the 9th house is in the 10th house, and the lord of the 5th house is in the 9th house. Due to this yoga, the native would be a commander of armies or enjoy high position, a big business magnate and also possess divine wisdom.One attracts victory in endeavors when Shiva is worshipped on Arudra nakshatr.(sc)
Mondays in the month are auspicious to worship Lord Shiva.Mondays in the month of Karthik (mid Nov- mid Dec) and in the month of Shravan (mid July – Mid August) are auspicious to worship Lord Shiva.Women pray to Shiva for welfare of their husbands and sons.(sc)

Pilgrimage- Heart of Hinduism — Prernamurti Bharti Shriji

vlcsnap-2015-06-19-16h49m08s231Pilgrimage is the heart of Hinduism.Pilgrimage is a sacred journey. It is a process that is not meant to simply get away from it all, but to allow oneself to encounter, see, and experience the Divine. This is accomplished by associating with holy people, visiting the holy places where the pastimes of the Divine have taken place, and where the sacred temples allow darshhan: the Vision of the Supreme. Darshan is the process of approaching the Deity in the Temple in a state of spiritual communication, open and ready to receive sacred revalations. It means to see the Absolute Reality, and also to be seen by that Supreme Reality, God.

Pilgrimage means living very simply, and going toward what is holy and most sacred, and remaining focused on the opportunity of having a life-changing experience. In this way we will undergo voluntary austerities for purification to relieve ourselves of lifetimes of karma. This process will help change our consciousness and our perception of our spiritual identity and how we fit into this world, and help us gain access to the spiritual dimension through enlightenment.

There are several reasons why many people go on pilgrimage tours of the holy sites and temples of India. One, of course, is to dovetail our interest in travelling and seeing foreign lands into a way of acquiring spiritual merit. Most everyone likes to travel and see new countries and sights and inspiring places, and some of the most stimulating places are those of spiritual importance where historical events or miracles have taken place, or where significant spiritual incidents have happened as described in various spiritual texts and epics, such as the Ramayana, Mahabharata, etc.

One of the most important reasons for going on pilgrimage tours and seeing the places of spiritual importance is to meet other saintly people who follow a spiritual path and see how they live. This is especially the case with saints and sages who can help us by giving their association and sharing their spiritual knowledge and realizations. This is of prime importance for us in order to align our lives in a similar manner so we can also make spiritual progress.

Also, by studying in such spiritually vibrant holy places, even for short periods of time, or by taking bath in the spiritually powerful rivers, such experiences will purify and enliven us and give us a deeper understanding of how to live a spiritual lifestyle. Tours like this can give us an everlasting impression that will inspire us for years to come, maybe even for the rest of our lives. Such an opportunity may not happen often, even after many lifetimes, so if such a possibility does come into our lives, we should seriously take advantage of it.

When you are travelling in harmony with the Divine, it is not unlikely that you will experience spontaneous help from others when you may need it. This has happened to me in many ways and many times. In such a state of consciousness, seeming obstacles will quickly disappear. However, other challenges may be there to test our sincerity, but usually it is nothing so great that prevents us from reaching our goal, unless we have some serious karma to work out. It is divine guidance that assists us in our mission and prepares us for higher and higher levels of spiritual perception. Perceiving this assistance is another form of experiencing the Divine and the spiritual progress that we are making.

The objective of pilgrimage takes on more meaning when we realize the purpose of life. Life is meant for becoming free from the materialistic world which means the continuous cycle of birth and death. It is for making spiritual advancement and to perceive our real identity.

In religion and spirituality, a pilgrimage is a long journey or search of great moral significance. Sometimes, it is a journey to a sacred place or shrine of importance to a naat faith. Members of every major religion participate in pilgrimages. A person who makes such a journey is called a pilgrim.

The True Religion (Dharma)–Prernamurti Bharti Shriji

The True ReligionReligion is the path of righteousness and living one’s life according to the codes of conduct as described by the Hindu scriptures.(sc)

Moral Law of the World

Hinduism describes dharma as the natural universal laws whose observance enables humans to be contented and happy, and to save himself from degradation and suffering. Dharma is the moral law combined with spiritual discipline that guides one’s life.

Hindus consider dharma the very foundation of life. It means “that which holds” the people of this world and the whole creation. Dharma is the “law of being” without which things cannot exist.(sc)

According to the Scriptures

Dharma refers to the religious ethics as propounded by Hindu gurus in ancient Indian scriptures.

Tulsidas, author of Ramcharitmanas, has defined the root of dharma as compassion. This principle was taken up by Lord Buddha in his immortal book of great wisdom, Dhammapada. TheAtharva Veda describes dharma symbolically: Prithivim dharmana dhritam, that is, “this world is upheld by dharma”. In the epic poem Mahabharata, the Pandavas represent dharma in life and the Kauravas represent adharma.(sc)

Good Dharma = Good Karma

Hinduism accepts the concept of reincarnation, and what determines the state of an individual in the next existence is

karmawhich refers to the actions undertaken by the body and the mind. In order to achieve good karma it is important to live life according to dharma, what is right.(sc)

What Makes You Dharmic?

Anything that helps human being to reach god is dharma and anything that hinders human being from reaching god is adharma. According to the Bhagavat Purana, righteous living or life on a dharmic path has four aspects: austerity (tap), purity (shauch), compassion (daya) and truthfulness (satya); and adharmic or unrighteous life has three vices: pride (ahankar), contact (sangh), and intoxication (madya). The essence of dharma lies in possessing a certain ability, power and spiritual strength. The strength of being dharmic also lies in the unique combination of spiritual brilliance and physical prowess.(sc)

The 10 Rules of Dharma

Manusmriti written by the ancient sage Manu, prescribes 10 essential rules for the observance of dharma: Patience (dhriti), forgiveness (kshama), piety or self control (dama), honesty (asteya), sanctity (shauch), control of senses (indraiya-nigrah), reason (dhi), knowledge or learning (vidya), truthfulness (satya) and absence of anger (krodha). Manu further writes, “Non-violence, truth, non-coveting, purity of body and mind, control of senses are the essence of dharma”. Therefore dharmic laws govern not only the individual but all in society.(sc)

The Purpose of Dharma

The purpose of dharma is not only to attain a union of the soul with the supreme reality, it also suggests a code of conduct that is intended to secure both worldly joys and supreme happiness. Rishi Kanda has defined dharma in Vaisesika as “that confers worldly joys and leads to supreme happiness”. Hinduism is the religion that suggests methods for the attainment of the highest ideal and eternal bliss here and now on earth and not somewhere in heaven. For example, it endorses the idea that it is one’s dharma to marry, raise a family and provide for that family in whatever way is necessary. The practice of dharma gives an experience of peace, joy, strength and tranquillity within one’s self and makes life disciplined.(sc)
