'HOW TO KNOW GOD ?
Yogam (Yoga), Vaithyam (Natural medicine), Jyothidam (Astrology) and Nyanam (Mystical Knowledge) must be master to know GOD'


VIDYA - EDUCATION
Education, which cannot give peace to the soul or cannot give the knowledge of the Self and the inner satisfaction, is not education. Education, which cannot wipe the tears of others, known or unknown, is not education. Education is understanding the situation - leading the life that can make the life, the Life Divine, where the ultimate goal of the life is the God-Realisation.

THREE STAGES OF HUMAN EVOLUTION

- Animal to Man ( Mooladhara to Anahata )
- Man to Man ( Anahata to Ajna )
- Man to Divine ( Ajna to Sahasrara )

GOLDEN AGE / SATYUGAM
During 2012, the Sun, Earth and Karthigai star, will be in alignment resulting in more of the grace light entering the Earth plane. Thereafter, it is predicted that the Karthigai - Lord Murugan energy will be responsible for the transformation of the planet and of the genetic evolution of the human species into Gods and Goddesses status. This energy will allow humans to return to their original blueprint. The most important thing to remember about these new energies is to stay conscious and match our frequency to receieve it through proper worships, rituals, yoga and mystical knowledge according to great siddha masters.

ANCIENT SIDDHA MASTERS
The Siddhas were scientists, particularly in their investigations into chemistry, astronomy, plants, human anatomy and physiology. They applied their extraordinary powers, developed through intensive yogis practices, to research these areas on atomic and universal levels without the use of sophisticated equipment. In the long linege of Siddhas, one does not know when they came into earth's existance. Whether they still exist or are they Ascended masters teaching humanity the various sciences and philosophy, will perhaps, be never known.


SIDDHAS TEACHINGS
In the teachings of the Siddhas the human body is a temple of God. Man is a miniature representation of Paramatma or Supreme Intelligence. The purpose of life is to realize God.To manifest that realization in all planes of existence.

SIDDHAS MEDICINE
Using special salts as well as herbal formulae the Siddhas developed the unique science of rejuvenation, known as "kaya kalpa", which allowed them to prolong their lives until the long term effects of Kriya Kundalini Pranayama and similar yogic practices could complete the process of transformation, bringing about physical immortality.

Siddhas followed the ancient Guru- disciple apprenticeship method. They revealed their secrets to those students whom they felt could be trusted not to misuse the science. The science of Kaya kalpa was limited to those great sages. who were prepared for the uplifting of humanity. Ayurveda came much later as discipline.

SIDDHAS SECRET KNOWLEDGE
The Siddhas had vast knowledge of human anatomy. Their single-minded concentration was unique. It was was achieved with perfection. Their literature on medicine was extensive. The Siddhas were a close-knit community and preferred to preserve their knowledge. They reduced this knowledge to codes and symbols and their literature was steeped in mysticism. Only a Siddha can decode the writings of a Siddha. A beginner could not gain any appreciable knowledge without the Siddha accepting him as a student.

THE SCIENCE OF YOGA
Siddhas such as Thirumoolar, Agastyar, Boganathar, and many more had realized their capacity for experiencing and manifesting the Divine. This was not only limited to the spiritual plane of existence. The Cosmic Spirit would descend into the more lower and gross planes of consciousness, the intellectual, mental, and physical bodies. This for us is a limiting thought as our yogic parasites are not as intense as the Siddha. With progressive surrender of their being , their ego and their very lives the Divine would indeed transform them. With intense practices of various Kriyas, hatha and bhakti yoga, meditation, mantras and Kriya Kundalini Pranayama they merged with the Cosmic Spirit . This was race against time as the natural breakdown of cells, catabolism, had to be reversed to anabolism to prolong the extent of their age. They had to complete the Divine transformation. With Kriya Kundalini yoga and using specific herbal and mineral salts they were able to prolong their youth for the Ultimate transformation.

SIDDHANTHAM
The Universe was created out of a Cosmic Thought . No civilization be it the Inca, Atlantis or Egyptian had such a precise knowledge as the Siddhas. They were proficient in the science of longevity or deathless state, alchemy, medicine and physics.

Rama Navami - Rama Jeyanthi

This year Rama Navami fall on 5th April 2017. Rama Navami means the birthday of Lord Rama. The rituals associated with Rama Navami starts on Chitirai 1st and ends on Rama navami. Some devotees fast on all nine days but majority of the people fast only the Ramnavami day. Those people who undertake fast on the day only eat food made using potatoes (no rice).
The Lord Vishnu incarnated as Rama and led a human life just to show all of humankind how we should lead our lives. Through all the hurdles in His life, he remained the perfect son, the perfect student, the perfect brother, the perfect husband, the perfect friend, the perfect warrior and the perfect king. Each and every one of His actions is a lesson to us and thus He is the perfect teacher of humankind to this day.


The greatness of Ramayanam
Dasaratha King of Ayodhya was sad as he had no issues to look after the kingdom after him. As advised by Guru Vasishta, he conducted a yajna called Puthrakameshti Yajna seeking child boon. To establish Dharma on Earth Lord Vishnu was born to him as Rama from his first queen Kausalya. Vishnu’s Adisesha and conch were born as Lakshmana and Satrugna to his their queen Sumitra. Bharatha representing Vishnu’s discus was born to the second queen Kaikeyi and was a symbol of Dharma himself. Rama, Lakshmana, Bharatha and Satrugna were born on very auspicious days with Punarvasu, Pushya, Aslesha as their birth stars respectively. All the four brothers were a living and practical example in human forms of the rule of Vedas. Rama and Lakshmana were close to each other while Satrugna was close to Bharatha.



Bharatha, an outstanding example of the political dharma of the days, ruled Ayodhya as its acting Governor of Rama from the Nandhi Grama placing Rama’s sandals on the throne. He ruled till the return of Rama from his exile after 14 years.
Their wives excelled their husbands in upholding Dharmas.
No power on earth could separate the brothers. They were united by soul and mind. Lord Sri Rama in the temple appears as on the Coronation Day in Ayodhya with His consort Mother Sita who suffered untold suffering during their exile, Lakshmana who was only happy to share the hardships of jungle life along with his brother, Bharatha and Satrugna whose sacrifice deserves all praise and Sri Anjaneya who was the soul of Rama in deciding His final victory over Ravanan.


Hari Rama Hari Rama Rama Rama Hari Hari ....
Visit Rama temple and offer Him with Seetha palam ( normal seetha and mullu seetha palam). Plant Thulasi plant today as many as you can.

Narmada Bana Lingam


The sacred Narmada river is one of the Sapta Gangas, the seven holy rivers in India. The legends identify it as the 'sweat' flowing out of Lord Shiva's own body, when He performed his Cosmic dance "Ananda Thandava" and therefore considered as the holiest of the rivers. On the river bank of the Narmada is Omkareshwar, the most famous among the twelve Jyothirlingams. Many Vedic scriptures propound that the natural Narmada Banalingams are self-manifest respresentations of Lord Shiva. What Salagramas are to Lord Maha Vishnu that Narmada Bana Lingas are to Lord Shiva.


The Composition and Symbolism of Narmada Lingams
It is the considered view of many researchers and geologists that the unique composition of the Narmada Shiva Lingams was due to the impregnation of its rocky river-sides and the rocks in the river bed, 14 million years ago by a large meteorite that crashed into the Narmada river. The fusion of the Meteorite and the Earthly Minerals has spawned a new and unique type of Crystalline Rock, with extraordinary energetic qualities - the Narmada Bana Lingams. Over a period of time, the impregnated rocks split into rock bits and pebbles and were moulded by strong and forceful currents of the Narmada river, which naturally tumbled and produced perfectly shaped and polished Shiva Lingams.


Regular worship of the Narmada Bana Lingam with the sacred mantras cause many intense and invisible effects. It is said that the sacred and powerful sounds from such mantras cause a powerful internal reverberation, which is absorbed by the Bana Lingam. With consistent worship, this energy is slowly released and emitted to the surrounding environments, and is specially known to have the capacity to negate the accumulated karmic burdens of its worshipper; in other words, the Bana Lingam dissolves the negative karmic baggage (negative karma) carried by the individual.

Rudraksha - divine gift of nature


The Tears of Lord Siva that are Rudraksha, are the original Beads of Power worn by the Yogis of India for thousands of years to maintain health and to gain self empowerment and fearless life on their path to Enlightenment and Liberation. The many Devotees of Truth who deliberately live their lives according to Eternal Natural Law that is Sanatana Dharma Know that Rudraksha Beads are a Gift from The Almighty God and are a Natural Birth Right of the Mankind.

Rudra" is the name of Lord Shiva whereas "Aksha" means tears. It is said that the plant of Rudraksha has originated from the tear drops of Lord Shiva. As per the Vedic scriptures, Rudraksha can nullify the effects of malefic planets to a great extent. No other bead is considered to be as auspicious and powerful as a Rudraksha.

According to the ancient mystics, effects of the beads of Rudraksha work by just by sight, touch of the hand and the body. rudraksha distracts the evil eye. It has the power of electro-magnetic, para-magnetic inductive property, and Dynamic Polarity, which differ in different mukhis.

Rudraksha, is the most powerful and awesome bead ever. This bead can help you achieve all you want - a healthy mind, body and soul, a wealthy life that many dream of and only some achieve, and a happy you.

How do we choose a good rudraksha ?
Many get confused with the shape and size of rudraksha . One should not seriously worry about it. Just see that the Mukhi is well defined, corns and contours are natural, and there are no cracks near the central hole. The bead has to be lustrous and healthy and devoid of deep cracks and insect holes .

Rudraksha beads can be dipped in milk or water and the same is to be consumed or taken as first thing in the morning.

How do the beads work ?
Rudraksha beads work on different chakras of human body as well on different planets and invite blessings from Gods. They work best when worn on body. Touching skin is not necessary for rudraksha beads to show effect. But method of wearing is very important. Just as gems work when worn on specific fingers , similarly rudraksha work when worn at specific parts of the body in a specific manner.


Do rudraksha suit all skins ?
Rudraksha is hot in nature. Some people cannot wear it . Their skin shows signs of allergy. In that case you may keep the beads in Puja room and offer daily prayers

People ask , Can ladies wear?
Yes, they can. According to our holy books , Rudraksha can be worn at all times by everybody .

"Is it that only Hindus can wear?"
No, All can wear. Ancient texts have not limited wearing of these beads to any caste , religion or sex . Some ancient texts also talk of animals wearing them and achieving salvation.

"Does it bring luck?"
Yes, Shiva Purana specially describe that Lakshmi stays where Rudraksha is.

"Can the family members keep interchanging Neck Malas, Japa Malas or Rudraksha beads?"
No. There is a relationship between the wearer and Rudraksha, which is very private and must not be shared. But it can be willed and passed on to the next generation.


Choosing Rudraksha

The best way to choose rudraksha is by reading the properties of the beads and selecting the ones that closely match with what you desire. Our ancients puranas specify properties of the beads only with regards to the different gods and goddess that reside in each specific bead and do not mention any relation whatsoever with their astrological properties. Rudraksha can be chosen by Purpose, Therapy or by Rashi. One bead or multiple beads of different mukhi may be combined together.

1 Mukhi Rudraksha
The One mukhi Rudraksha is the symbol of Godhood, Supreme Truth and Attainment of Eternity. The One mukhi Rudraksha is itself Lord Shankar and it is the main among all rudrakshas of all faces. It is ruled by the Sun and enlightens the Super Consciousness. It brings the power of Dharana to the wearer meaning the power to concentrate the mind on an object. The wearer of One mukhi Rudraksha gets his mental structure changed and he begins to feel renunciation from the worldly affairs and naturally inclines towards GOD. His mind begins to concentrate on the Supreme Element that is Partattva Dharana cha jayate Tatprakashnam thus the discoverers of Aatma Tattva must wear One Mukhi Rudraksha .

2 Mukhi Rudraksha
2 Mukhi Rudraksha effectively control the malefic effects of Moon such as diseases of Left eye, kidney, intestine in physical level and in the spiritual level such as lack of harmony in relationship etc. Two faced Rudraksha has natural two lines or faces. It is oval in shape and is available in two varieties – Nepal and Haridwar (India).It is the symbol of ArdhaNareeshwara, a joint image of the Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati (Shakti). In this image we see both in one body. It brings unity like the family unity in form, speech and Meaning. Being capable of getting riches and virtuous off springs by wearing two faced Rudraksha, it’s wearer becomes capable of leading peaceful and sacred life and the wearer’s family finds the reverence and faith continuously increasing among them. Removing the differences of opinions between the Teacher & the pupil, the father and the son, the husband and the wife, and friends, it establishes unity between them.

3 Mukhi Rudraksha

3 Mukhi Rudraksha Bead is known to be one of the most powerful Rudraksha for stopping all problems created in the past and existing in the present moment and about to take place in the Future. This Rudraksha Bead combined with appropriate Mantras helps to dramatically change a persons life for the better in the 40 days it takes to complete an initial Mantra Discipline. The 3 Mukhi Rudraksha Bead is a life saver. The wearer feels its influence by attaining success in his efforts, favourable means, learning and knowledge. Its best virtue is that it makes the wearer free from chronic fever certainly. It contains the Trinity of Gods: Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh.

Being influenced by the creative wisdom of the four headed Lord Brahma, it gives the wearer the creative power and provides him learning and knowledge. The dull mined students must wear it. And it is beneficial to scientists, researchers, intellectuals, artists, writers and journalists. In mythology it represents Goddess Saraswati and Brahma. Malefic effects of Jupiter include intellectual dullness of mind, lack of grasping and understanding power, difficulty in effective communication and also neurotic conditions of mind. This mukhi also governs logical and concrete and structural thinking. It increases wit and intelligence. If the three beads of four faced Rudraksha are fastened in the right hand nobody can be stand to face to the wearer. Boil the Rudraksha in milk and drink for 21 days to improve memory.

5 Mukhi Rudraksha
5 mukhi Rudraksha is the form of Rudra named Kaalagni. The wealth, in the form of learning that man gains in the world, should be apparent and permanent only then it is meaningful. Five faced Rudraksha is useful for this purpose. In the long run we lose our power to maintain the learning that we have gained and at last it vanishes. We forget the acquired learning or cannot remember the lost learning only after wearing the five faced Rudraksha. Agni (fire) purifies the metals and similarly five faced Rudraksha rectifies all the vices and faults of Jeeva and makes him pure and Jeeva gains the form of Pashupati i.e. the Lord of all creatures after becoming free from the animal instincts. By wearing its mala the wearer’s mind remains peaceful. There is no suspicion about the fact that the wearer of Five faced Rudraksha mala never gets untimely death.

The afflictions and influences of Mars can cause cuts, wounds, surgery, injury by weapons, itching of the skin, bone fractures, hemorrhoids, miscarriages and abortions. Wearing six Mukhi rudraksha helps in controlling the malefic effects of Mars and increases the concentration. Six Mukhi rudraksha is very dear to Lord Kartikeya and is the source of his energy.

Rudrakhsas of different mukhis please different planets. Each one has control on one of the nine planets. They receive constructive vibration from the planets. Its power of receiving vibration is incredible and it works like a transformer emitting positive vibrations incessantly. Rudraksha has the power of electro-magnetic inductive property, and Dynamic Polarity. The electro-magnetic and para-magnetic vidrations differ in different mukhis. It sends specific electric impulses to the brain through the process of reflex, which stimulates the brain centres and transfers information in the Neuro physicology, and cures various ailments.

Matha Shivarathiri - By Vijayakumar Alagappan

The significance of Matha (monthly) Shivarathiri is not so commonly known, which falls on the Krishna paksha Chaturdasi (14th Wanning Moon) every month or the night preceding the Ammavasai (New Moon). The very moment we hear the name Shivarathiri most of us thought the Maha Shivarathiri. It is primarily only this Maha Shivarathiri (The Shivarathri that occurs during the month of February or the Tamil month of Maasi) that is given the predominance now. So it's on this Maha Shivarathiri that we do the meditation, mantra chanting, poojas during the night time and try to keep ourselves awake the whole night.


Matha Shivarathiri when falls on Tuesday becomes highly auspicious.

But many people are not aware that the monthly Shivarathiri too carries equal importance. During monthly Shivarathiri we need to concentrate on lots of chanting, worships and meditation during the night time. It's during this night time that the negative forces or the asura shakthis' take up their higher hand. So to protect ourselves against their vibrations we need to do lot of rituals and chantings.

The Significance of Meditation during Matha Shivarathiri

The moon, which is the presiding deity of the mind of man, wanes until the fourteenth day after full moon. The mind should be starved into the condition, so that man becomes free of karmic thoughts. When there is no Moon there will be no thoughts from mind which will be favourable to do powerful meditation. Meditation on Shivarathiri when there is no Moon will be tremendously successful even for a great yogis.

Chant Hmmm Nama Shivaya - 108 times at Matha Shivarathiri Night

Science of Maha Shiva Ratri


Festivals in India include the Scientific wisdom in four different fields of sciences. Climatology, Astronomy, Siddha Vaidyam / Ayur Vedam and Human Physiology. Human body is susceptible for the changes in the cyclical motions of the moon and sun. The impact of these changes are closely documented by the advanced researchers in the field of biofarming and organic farming. The ascent and descent of the moon have the impact on the growth of the plants and all cellular structures, including on the germination of the plants.

What is the simplest way of appeasing Lord Shiva?
Offering him Vilvam leaves.

Ancient mystics of India understood that these changes also affect at certain seasonal transitions and devised the methods for the natural adaptations for these changes. Festivals are celebrated for these adaption. Maha Shiva Rathiri comes exactly at this seasonal transition from the Winter to Spring. All nature and cosmos covered by the space and time undergoes three phenomenon. Creation, Growth, and Dissolution. The time span of these cycles change. Stars and Galaxies may have a cycle of millions of light years and species may have few hours. These three aspects are called as the Brahma Tatva, Vishnu Tatva and Maheswara Tatva. During the rotation around the sun the earth, along with all associated creation on the earth, undergoes three faces of Time. These are called as “Kalams” in the Sasthraas. They are Spring Time (Usha Kalam), Monsoon Time (Varsha Kalam) and Winter Time (Sitha Kalam). Every time has two seasons namely Vasantha and Grishma rithu (Spring Time and early summer), Sarath and Varsha rithu (Monsoon Time for farming), and Hemantha and Sisira rithu (early and late Winter Time followed by harvest), and after the Winter Time the Spring Time will start again.


Poojas, Mantras and Meditation during Maha Shivaratri are amplified by 10 million times.

All the flora and fauna will undergo hibernation during the Winter Time and will start new germination during the Spring Time. This transition time is the most important one for all species including humans. Festivals are celebrated to make them adapt for these transitions. Maheswara tatva belongs to the dissolution of this natural cycle so this Maha Shiva Rathiri is celebrated at the last day of the first month in the Late Winter, before the starting of Spring Time. Human body also undergoes very subtle cellular and molecular changes during this time. Most of the lung and respiratory infections are possible during this time. To avoid them, certain rules are prescribed in the form of celebration of the Maha Shiva Rathiri. We have to always remember that in Hinduism, the science is interspersed with the way of human life. Now we apply the tanning lotions and other skin rash medicines for ultra violet sun rays during these months. But these have their limitations, as these are reactive and invasive procedures of prevention of disease.



Never, ever miss to observe Shiva Rathiri especially Maha Shiva Rathiri

The non invasive prevention techniques are the gradual adjustment of the body’s physiology through these festivals.

According to Siddha Vaidyam, the Vilvam Leaves have a power full preventive medicine for all the Respiratory Diseases including the Cardiac Problems. The worshipping Shiva with these leaves means using them with hand and smelling the smell of these leaves. This involves the aroma therapy. According to the advanced research when moon goes to an angle between 840 to 1800 in it’s rotation around the earth there will be profound influence on the Brain, Digestive Organs, Kidneys, Reproductive Organs, and Spleen. Especially in the months when the sun heat is less in the peak of winter time ( which results due to the increased distance between the earth and the sun due to its longitudinal axis). This influences reaches peak on the 14 day of the moon’s descent in the peat of deep winter season which is Maha Shiva Rathiri day. So on this the Fasting is prescribed according to Siddha Vaidyam. This is intended to keep the body systems intact. The Shiva Lingams are made with the special granite stone which have a specific crystalline structure. This structure is found to have a specific property of resonating the cosmic vibrations. Water has a peculiar property of called colloidal property. This enhances the water molecules to change their bond angles when came in to contact with the cosmic resonance and to increase their energy which then becomes powerful medicine. The abhishekam of the Shiva Lingams is to do this complicated exercises for the benefit of the mankind.

Maha Shivarathiri is considered the most auspicious time to please Lord Shiva to gain his blessings.

All Temples build on the principles of Siddhatham Agamas in South India especially at Tamil Nadu are the Accumulators of the Cosmic energy and Geo Magnetic Energies for the disseminating them for the individuals who go to temples. Going to temples and staying in the night of Maha Shiva Rathiri involves the taking and assimilating the energy for the whole night so that the energy imbalances that occur during the transitional changes are corrected. The mantras used in the abhishekam or in the worship are definite energy states which produce a specified quantum of energy if recited. This energy is absorbed by the molecules of the body and they in turn radiate heightened infrared band of energies. These energies radiated are picked up by the Acu Pressure Points or Adharas which distribute the energy for all the systems of the body for the energy correction. That is the reason why the Rudra Namakam, Chamakam and Mahanyasam and other powerful Mantras are recited on this Maha Shiva Rathiri Day.
