Varuna Gayatri and its meaning

In hinduism, Vedic on December 4, 2008 at 5:49 am

Lord Varuna is one of the Trinity of the Vedas. He was originally the god of Rta (universal law and celestial order) during the vedic period. He is the supreme keeper of law and cosmic order. Hence Varuna Gayatri is a very powerful mantra that can be used to bring order to your house, family, body, career, education, etc. Since Varuna is also the lord of the waters, it is said chanting the Varuna Gayatri can ward off any harm from water.

Varuna Gayatri is also very beneficial for couples who are always quarreling or having disagreements between them, because the Varuna Gayatri increases the love between man and woman. It is good for newly weds as well as husband and wife who have been married for long.

Likewise chant Varuna Gayatri to get rid of disorders in your body and mind. It is a very powerful mantra and can be chanted at any time of the day.

Here’s the Varuna Gayatri:

Aum Jalbimbaye Vvidmahe
Nila Purushaye Dhimahi
Tanno Varunah Prachodayat

Translation:

Om, Let us meditate on the reflection of water
O person of ocean blue, give me higher intellect
And let the God of water illuminate my mind

As noted in the tranlation, meditating upon the Varuna Gayatri also helps the aspirant find out all evils hidden within the mind and body. There is a legend illustrating this point.

It is said that Sage Vasistha was a very close associate of Lord Varuna. Once the sage committed some sin unconsciously and Varuna, being righteous as ever and undiscriminating in the enforcement of the cosmic order, punished sage Vasistha and cut his friendship with the sage. Sage Vasistha came to realize he committed some sin unconsciously and prayed to Lord Varuna to tell him what the sin was and also free him from the sin.

As the story illustrates, praying to Varuna or chanting Varuna Gayatri brings about illumination for an aspirant and reveals all hidden evils in the aspirant’s body and mind.

Du’a (Dua) – worship of Allah

In islam on November 30, 2008 at 1:03 pm

Du’a or Dua (as it is commonly written) a prayer of asking or request in Islam. It is an Arabic word meaning ‘to call out’ or to summon. It is regarded as the second greatest acts of worship in Islam.

The Qur’an quotes Allah’s commands related to Dua:

“Call on Me; I will answer you!”

Prophet Muhammad spoke of it as the most noble act of a Muslim. He called it the ‘best form of worship’.

Kinds of Dua:
There are essentially two types of supplication or Dua – a Du’a al-mas’alah (Dua of Asking) and a Du’a al-ibadah (Dua of Worship).

A dua is called Du’a al-mas’alah (Dua of Asking) when the supplicant asks Allah for something. It may be a need or a request to remove some danger.

One best example is:
Rabbi la tadharni fardaw wa-anta Khairul Waritheen
O my Lord! Leave me not without offspring, though thou art the best of inheritors

A dua is called Du’a al-ibadah (Dua of Worship) when the supplicant worships Allah in his prayer. Usually even some Duas of asking are also considered Duas of Worship because even Dua of Asking engages in worship of the Almighty. But dua of worship is best described when the prayer offered does not include any request for a fulfillment of need.

Example:
Bismillahi, al-ladhi, La illaha illa huwa
In the Name of Allah. There is no God but He.

Other examples include duas given during salat, zakaat or fasts.

Dalai Lama’s definition of Om Mani Padme Hum

In Buddhism on November 25, 2008 at 12:10 pm

H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama’s definition

Dalai Lama is considered to be the incarnation of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig and his devotees are particularly partial to this mantra. He defines the mantra like this:

“It is very good to recite the mantra Om mani padme hum, but while you are doing it, you should be thinking on its meaning, for the meaning of the six syllables is great and vast… The first, Om […] symbolizes the practitioner’s impure body, speech, and mind; it also symbolizes the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha[…]”

“The path is indicated by the next four syllables. Mani, meaning jewel, symbolizes the factors of method: (the) altruistic intention to become enlightened, compassion, and love.[…]”

“The two syllables, padme, meaning lotus, symbolize wisdom[…]”

“Purity must be achieved by an indivisible unity of method and wisdom, symbolized by the final syllable hum, which indicates indivisibility[…]”

“Thus the six syllables, om mani padme hum, mean that in dependence on the practice of a path which is an indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech, and mind into the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha[…]”

Om mani padme hum – its meaning and importance

In Buddhism on November 24, 2008 at 11:20 am

Om mani padme hum is one of the most important mantras in Buddhism. This is the mantra of Avalokiteshavara, the bodhisattva of compassion. In Tibet the bodisattva is also called Chenrezig while the Chinese name is Guanyin. This mantra has six syllables and is associated with four-armed Shadakshari form of Avalokiteshvara.

Some say this mantra originated from Sadhanamala published as early as the twelveth century while others claim the mantra has its source in Karandavyuha Sutra in the Chinese Buddhist canon.

There are various versions of the mantra as this mantra is very famous and is chanted by buddhists of many countries.

In Devanagari: Om Mani Padme Hum
In Tibetan: Om Mani Peme Hung
In Korean Hangul: Om Mani Padeume Hum
In Japanese Katakana: On Mani Hatsumei Un
In Mongolian:: Um maani badmi khum
In Chinese pinyin: Am Mani Bami Hong

Meaning of Om mani padme hum:
Various buddhist schools interpret the mantra differently. But the essence and function of the mantra remain the same.

Mani padme is frequently interpreted as ‘jewel in the lotus’ from Sanskirt Mani-lotus and padme-lotus. Another interpretation of mani padme is ‘Jewel Lotus’, an epithet of Avaloktesvara bodhisattva. Om and Hum are harmonic tunes of non-duality and limitless compassion respectively. Om corresponds to the crown chakra visualized as white light while hum is represents the heart chakra seen as a blue light.

Some schools of Buddhism, especially the Tibetan Buddist, take the mantra’s six syllables to be symbolic or representation of purification of the six realms of existence.

Om purifies pride.
Ma purifies jealousy and lust for entertainment
Ni purfies passion and desire
Pad purifies ignorance and prejudice
Me purifies poverty and possessiveness
Hum purifies agression and hatred

Thanksgiving Day and its significance

In christian on November 22, 2008 at 7:18 am

Thanksgiving Day is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in every November in the United States. This year it falls on 27 November. Its usually a end of harvest season and in US it is an American Federal holiday. It originated as a religious community tradition where the community offers thanks to God for its material and spiritual possession. Of late it has become a day for national celebration, festivities and general gaiety. The period between Thanksgiving and New Year is now called the holiday season.

American Thanksgiving’s origins can be traced to as early as the 1565 when on September 8 when about 600 spanish settlers landed on what is today St. Augustine, Florida and held a communal Thanksgiving for their safe journey. Today it is considered the first Thanksgiving of US. Next notable Thanksgiving days were on December 4, 1619 at the Virginia Colony and the Thanksgiving of the Pilgrims of Plymouth in 1621. The 1777 Thanksgiving after the Battle of Saratoga is another important date in the history of American Thanksgiving. On October 3, 1789, George Washington made Thanksgiving a national day.

Most important part of the Thanksgiving is the family meal in every home. The whole family gathers at the meal and start with the saying of grace. The meal usually consists of roasted turkey, pumkin pie, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet corn, etc.

There are also communal feeding of the poor and most foods are collected by various organizations from every home several days before the Thanksgiving. For this reason the food primarily consists of canned food. Though Thanksgiving is not really associated with the religious past of Christianity, it is the only non-holy day that sees mass gatherings of Christians at various Catholic churches.

Thanksgiving is also a time for shopping and public parades in the US. Seasonal shopping season usually begins on friday next to Thanksgiving and is usually called the Black Friday. But due to commercialized consumerism there have been protests across US since several years and some communities observe Black Friday as the Buy Nothing Day.

Various national parades take place during that day and here is a short list of American Thanksgivin Parades:

  • Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, New York
  • McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade, Chicago, Illinois
  • 6abc IKEA Thanksgiving Day Parade, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Parade, Plymouth, Massachusetts
  • H-E-B Holiday Parade, Houston, Texas

Gayatri Mantra and its meaning

In hinduism on November 20, 2008 at 5:52 pm

Gayatri Mantra is one of the oldest and the holiest mantras among Hindus. Traditionally the source for Gayatri Mantra is the vedas. Since the actual verse in the Vedas was in the form of a Vedic chant, it was rephrased many times variously and is still used by Hindus all over the world. It is considered the most powerful mantra by many Hindus. The mantra is also called the ‘Mother of the Vedas’.

Gayatri, also called Savitri,  is five-faced Goddess who presides over the five human senses and hence protects the five life forces of any aspirant who chants her mantra with devotion and focus. Lord Krishna, in Bhagvad Gita, says to Arujuna ‘Among all mantras, I am the Gayatri’.

Here is the mantra and a list of its common interpretations:

Aum bhur bhuwah swaha tat savitur varenyam
bhargo devasya dheemahi dhiyo yo naha prachodayat

Translation/Interpretation:
May the Almighty God illuminate our intellect to lead us along the righteous path

Other interpretations:

Interpretation of the Mantra by Sir William Jones

“Let us adore the supremacy of that Divine Sun, the Godhead, who illuminates all, who recreates all, from whom all proceed, to whom all must return, whom we invoke to direct our understanding aright in our progress towards his holy seat.”

Interpretation of the Mantra by the Arya Samaj

“O God, Thou art the giver of life, the remover of pain and sorrow, the bestower of happiness; O Creator of the Universe, may we receive Thy supreme sin-destroying light; may Thou guide our intellect in the right direction.”

Interpretation of Mantra in the Brahmo religion

As Savitr in the original Sanskrit may be interpreted in two ways, first as the sun, secondly as the “originator or creator”, Raja Ram Mohan Roy and Maharshi Debendranath Tagore used that word in the second sense. Interpreted in their way the whole formula may be thus rendered :

“We meditate on the worshipable power and glory of Him who has created the earth, the nether world and the heavens (i.e. the universe), and who directs our understanding.”

Gayatri Mantra removes all obstacles in your path and bestows you with wisdom and spiritual growth.

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.
