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.

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.

The spirit of the King started residing on the Pipal tree.  The people in the surrounding places were terrified of this.

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!!
