Shiva Gayatri and its meaning

In hinduism, Vedic on December 15, 2008 at 6:55 am

Shiva Gayatri is one of the most powerful Gayatri Mantras. It is dedicated to Shiva (Siva, Rudra).
Shiva is the destroyer and the God of sexuality. As a destroyer, Shiva destroys all evils in the body and mind, thus purifying the aspirant. He also makes things clear in the mind which is a natural consequence of destruction of evil in body and mind. Since He is also the god of fertility and sexuality, chanting Shiva gayatri gives the aspirant to control baser instincts like desire for sex, etc.Worship of Shiva dates back to pre-Vedic and Vedic period. He is one of the most powerful forces controlling creation.

Shiva Gayatri:

Om Pancahvaktraye Vidmahe
Mahadevaye Dhimahi
Tanno Rudra Prachodayat

Translation:

We meditate on Mahadeva, may Rudra deirect our minds.

What is Dattatreya Jayanti?

In hinduism, Vedic on December 12, 2008 at 7:32 am

Today is Dattatreya Jayanti. So who is Dattatreya and what does this Dattatreya Jayanti mean to all who worship him?

Dattatreya Jayanti is celebrated on the full moon day of the Margaseersha (Margashirsha) month. On that day, the feast of Dattatreya is celebrated by his worshippers.

Dattatreya is the combined avatar of Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu. There is a very interesting story behind the birth of Dattatreya.

Many centuries ago, there lived a rishi (sage, muni) called Atri. His wife Anasuya was very devoted and a pativrata. Narada used to talk a lot about Anasuya and her devotion to her Atri. That made Saraswati, Lakhsmi and Parvati jealous of Anasuya. They decided to really test the strength of Anasuya’s fidelity to her husband Atri. So they requested their husbands Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswara (Siva) to test Anasuya.

So Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva (Shankar) disguised themselves as sages and go to pativrat Anasuya’s house when her husband Atri was not at home. Anasuya welcomed the trinity and requests them to stay for lunch.

Brahma, Visnu and Shiva agree to that but they put one condition. They ask Anasuya to serve them naked.

Anasuya is shocked but cannot refuse the sages. But at the same time she is a devoted wife and hence cannot stand naked before three strange men even though the three are sages. Finally Anasuya hit upon a solution. With the power of her sincerity and devotion she turned the trinity
into three babies. She then removed her clothes and served the three babies their food. She treated the babies as if they were her own.

Anasuya’s husband Atri returns and immediately recognizes the babies for who they are. Anasuya tells her husband about the sages. Atri explains to his wife who the three actually were. Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva reappear in their own forms and bless the devoted couple. They leave back to the heavens but they also leave a part of themselves in the form of a baby. This baby is named Dattatreya and thus Dattatreya is born.

Dattatreya remained the son of Anasuya and Atri. He grew up to be a sage and a celibate. He remained digambara (naked) throughout his life.

Dattatreya Mantra:

Om Namo Bhagavate Dattaatreyaaya Smarana Maatra Samtushhtaaya

Om salutations unto Lord Dattatreya who is appeased by devotion and remembrance

Navakar Mantra for humility

In Jainism on November 19, 2008 at 5:50 pm

Navakar Mantra (alternatively known as Namokar Mantra, Namaskar Mantra or Navkar Mantra) is the central mantra of Jains. By chanting this mantra an aspirant is offering respects to five spiritual guides or masters called Panch Parmesthi together. These five people are Arihantas, Siddhas, Acharyas, Upadyayas and Sadhus or Sadhvis. The most important point to note here is that the mantra makes no mention of any names of any specific people including Tirthankaras and Siddhas. The reason for this is that the mantra seeks to guide an aspirant’s focus on to the virtues and spiritual aspects of the Panch Parmesthi rather than on the names and lives of earlier spiritual guides. It is common belief among Jains that by chanting this mantar and striving to emulate the virtues of Panch Parmesthi, the aspirant will become inspired and be shown the path to liberation.

Let us look at the mantra, its meaning and the Panch Parmesthi a bit more closely:

Mantar:

Namo Arihantânam
Namo Siddhânam
Namo Âyariyânam
Namo Uvajjhâyanam
Namo Loe Savva Sahûnam
Eso Panch Namokkaro, Savva Pâvappanâsano
Mangalanam Cha Savvesim, Padhamam Havai Mangalam

English Translation:
I bow to the Arihantas (Prophets).
I bow to the Siddhas (Liberated Souls).
I bow to the Acharyas (Preceptors or Spiritual Leaders).
I bow to the Upadhyaya (Teachers).
I bow to all the Sadhus (Saints).
This fivefold bow (mantra) destroys all sins and obstacles
and of all auspicious mantras, is the first and foremost one.

I bow to the Arihantas – Arihantas means prophets. The word is made of two root words – Ari and Hanta. Ari means ememies and hanta means destroyer. Hence Arihanta is literally Destroyer of Enemies. But just like no mention of actual prophets or gurus is made in the mantar, here too enemies means human vices in each of us rather than real physical enemies. Thus Arihant is a person who has successfully destroyed his ego, anger, physical craving, greed, etc.

I bow to the Siddhas
– Liberated people. People who have attained salvation and who have broken free of the chain of birth and death. They are said to be free from the karmic debt and do not collect any more karmas.

I bow to the Acharyas – Spiritual leaders are those people who carry the word and message of the Tirthankaras. Since the last Tirthankara was Mahavira, Acharyas after him are all those who dedicate their life to spreading and upholding the message Lord Mahavira.

I bow to all the Upadhyaya – Upadhyayas are teachers who have complete knowledge of Agamas, the Jain scriptures. They are also teachers because they teach the scriptures to other aspirants.

I bow to all the Sadhus – A sadhu or sadhvi is a man or a woman who was previously a householder and who subsequently, having been disillusioned with the material life, has given up worldly matters for the sake of spiritual upliftment.

Waheguru means Almighty God

In Sikhism on November 18, 2008 at 5:47 pm

Waheguru (alternatively pronounced as Vahiguru or Vahguru) is the Gurumantar for Sikhs. It is also called Mool Mantar or Mul Mantar. It is a reference to God. Literal meaning of the word is ‘Wonderful Lord’ in Gurumuki language. The term is made from two root words – Wah and Guru.

Wah is an expression of wonder, while Guru means teacher (spiritual/enlightened teacher in this context). ‘Waheguru’ occurs 18 times in Shri Guru Granth Sahib.  Other names used are Onkar, Satguru (true teacher), Satnaam (true name), Rama, Rahman and Purushah.

Guru Granth Sahib has a verse explains that God is one and is only referred to by different names by different people. Here is the verse:

Koyi Bole Ram Ram, Koyi Khuda
Koyi Seve Gosain, Koyi Allah
Kaaran Karan Kareem
Kirpa Taar Raheem

Translation:

Some call (you) Ram Ram, Some Khuda
Some serve (you) as the Gosain, some Allah
You alone are the cause of everything
Shower your mercy and Compassion (on me)

Other names for God in Sikhism are: OnKar, Nir-vair, Akaal-moorat and Gobind.  Waheguru is used in meditation and chanting by Sikhs. Chanting can be mental, verbal with or without a rosary. By repeating it egoism is cast out and one becomes humble.

Typing Waheguru on 9Dozen.com

There are two ways to take up chanting of Waheguru on 9Dozen.com. One, you can type the word repeatedly in the chant box for a set number of times everyday.

Alternatively, if you prefer mental chanting you can use the ‘chant, cut, paste’ method of chanting. In this method you copy the Gurumantar text, then, for every mental repetition you paste the mantar into the chant box and press enter. That way you can keep count of how many times you have chanted it without trying to hold the numbers in your mind which is quite distracting. In the end you can simply know  your count by looking at the count number above your chant box.

Early morning is one of the best times to chant the Gurumantar since chanting it also calms your mind and brings peace of mind. You can remain calm and relaxed the rest of the day. But if you find it difficult to keep up the early morning chant, then you can follow any time that is convenient for you. However, it would be very beneficial if you can type the chant for a few minutes before beginning your daily work.

Concentrate on the meaning of the word while you are typing. Try to reflect on the aspect of a Supreme Creator. By chanting Waheguru your ego is subdued and you become humble.
