Siddhas, Yogis & Rishis of India

The greatest contribution of India to the world is her material and spiritual science. No civilization, however old it be, has ever attained the level of sophistication, reached by the great ancient Siddhas, Yogis and Rishis of India in material and spiritual science.

What they had was not just intelligence but intuition. They could see, hear or feel beyond the realm of the five senses. They did not need telescopes, microscope or other scientific equipments to unravel the mysteries of the cosmos. They only relied on the most powerful instrument in the world the human soul which has it in a latent sense, omniscience and omnipotence.

The earth plane was actually designed as a laboratory for the evolution of souls, so the GOD send us His reprsentatives in the form of Siddhas, Yogis and Rishis to show us the way. This great souls are in every part of the world, but particularly in India and especially in Tamil Nadu, the land of the Mystics.

In India all scientific truths are imbibed in routine life, by explaining them through Puranic Stories. Through tradition or custom, all scientific truths are brought to the stage of implementation in day-to-day life

In this Blog im Decoding the Hindu Sacred Stories, Symbols, Myth, Rituals and Worships for Today`s Modern World Scientifically.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Arudra Darshan ( Chidambara Raghasiam) on 2nd Jan 2018

Arudra Darshan - the Dance of Shiva / Orion Star
~ By Vijayakumar Alagappan

Arudra Darshan is the festival celebrated in the temples of Lord Shiva, among which Chidambaram (Tamilnadu). The image of the dancing Shiva - Nadaraja originated from here. The image of Nadaraja symbolizes activity and stillness together, it's dancing but it's a still dance. He is the unmoved mover, he doesn't move but he moves everything around Him. The term Chidambaram means the sky of consciousness - Chit-am-bara. It is where consciousness originated and he dances and the dancing is the symbol of 
activity. And the activity is not just physical activity but also a mental activity. The 
predawn hours of the Full Moon night in the solar month of Dhanusu with the longest nights in the year, marks the auspicious time for Arudra Darshan. This falls on the day ruled by the star Arudra / Thiruvadhirai (Orion), which designates a golden red, flame, representing Lord Shiva Himself. It is in the form of light that the Lord performs His functions with ecstatic dance. The cosmic dance of Lord Shiva is enacted on that day, featuring the revered images of Lord 
Nadaraja and His consort Sivakami decked in regal finery. The deities are taken back to the 
Sanctum Sanctorum. Chidambaram temple houses one of the Pancha Sabhai.e., the fire cosmic dancehalls of Lord Shiva. Abishekam is performed to the Lord on this day. A delicious sweet 
preparation, known as Naivedya and distributed to devotees as prasadam.

Scientists call Arudra "mysterious" and "elusive" in their published works, informally calling this massive orb "the dancing star." 
Hindus might find the name apt - after all, Siva is Nadaraja, 
King of Dance.

Lord Shiva Represent Nadaraja
Lord Shiva's cosmic dance is represented as `Nadaraja' (Lord of dance). The cosmic dance is known as dance of bliss (Anandha Thandavam). Lord Shiva performs five most important functions to keep the world alive. They include creation, protection, destruction, embodiment and saving with grace. Lord Nadaraja's cosmic dance pose represents all these five activities – the hourglass shaped drum held in his upper right hand by the Lord represents the function `creation'; the second right hand gesture symbolising `fear not' represents `protection'; the fire held in the upper left hand represents `destruction'; the second left hand points towards raised foot signifies liberation from successive birth; the foot planted on the earth represents Lord's `embodiment' function; and finally the foot held aloft also symbolises the `grace'. The dwarf demon lies at the bottom of the planted foot signifies ignorance. The flames surrounding the lord represent the universe. The snake found around the Lord's waist signifies yogic energy (kundalini or pranasakti). The cosmic dance form of Lord Nadaraja represents the continuous cycle of creation of soul, protection of soul, destruction of soul, embodiment of soul and liberation of the soul from successive birth. Lord Nadaraja dances with his consort Devi Sivakami. In fact the Lord derives energy from his consort Shakti. ( Shakti means energy).

Cosmic Dance
From puranas we learn that on this holy day Lord Shiva has performed this blissful cosmic dance in front of his two ardent devotees - Vyagrapadha and Adhisesha (Lord Adhisesha is the five headed serpent on whose body Lord Vishnu lays down). The subjects of Lord Shiva also witnessed this dance. They wanted to celebrate this day as `Arudhra Darisanam' or cosmic dance of Lord Nadaraja. They wanted to seek the grace of the Lord for protecting the cosmos with his grace.

The destruction is a part of evolution. Every day we sleep or die to wake up fresh. The ‘shivam’ or the intelligence of God inside us takes care of the need to destroy cells so that new ones are born.

In all Shiva temples there will be sanctum sanctorum for Lord Nadaraja. There will be abhishekam (bathing the prime deity) and pooja for six times in a day in very temples. On the day of Arudhra Darshan there will abhishekam and pooja on the early morning of the full moon night.

The holy shrine Chidambaram (located in Cuddalore district, Tamil Nadu) is considered as foremost important from Saivites point of view. The prime deity is Lord Nadaraja and his consort Devi Sivakami. The temple's annual festival Margazhi Bhramotsavamwill be celebrated for ten days. It is one of the very important festivals. On this holy day at Chidambaram more than two lakh devotees will congregate to witness tenthday events of Arudhra Darshan, the most important festival. The holy abhishekam and pooja will be performed and the Lord and His consort will be taken as procession. During the procession the devotees (oothuvar) will recite the devotional holy hymns from "Thevaram", "Thiruvasagam" and "Thiruvempavai".

Chidambara Raghasiam

What is Chidambaram Raghasiam 
The only 
ancient temple where Lord Nadaraja is the presiding deity is located in Chidambaram and the unique feature of that temple is the famus "Chidambaram Raghasiam" ( Cosmic Secrets) . The mental activity is started by the dance of syllables or vowels and consonants, 51 in number. And these representatives, 51 sounds or alphabets are displayed to you in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple that the central piece is the dancing Shiva. And his one side is the goddess and the other side is a screen, a curtain and behind the curtain they place this 51 alphabets that are responsible for originating consciousness. So during the services they remove the curtain and ask you this is the secret of Chidambaram (Chidambara rahasyam). They won't explain it to you what it is but there are only 51 golden bilwa leaves which are inscribed the sounds that go to compose consciousness. The idea is if you understand consciousness hidden in the alphabets then you have understood how the world is organized.

Mythology: Lord Nataraja, Lord of Dance, Dance of Destruction
In the deodar forest lived sages who had spent their lives studying the cosmos, seeking the supreme truth. As time passed the sages deluded themselves with self-importance and their heads swelled with pride. They claimed they had renounced the world but secretly they sought all the pleasures of a life of luxury. They preached renunciation but practiced every from of sensual indulgence.

On Arudra day our Moon, Earth and Orion star groups will be in a straight vertical line in their position and help us sending grace light to change our mind and by changing our mind to change our life

To teach the sages a lesson Shiva arrived in the form of a handsome young hermit. Seduced by his beauty the sages and their wives ran after him. The sages held Shiva responsible for their own lack of restraint. They decided to destroy this temptation. With their magic powers they created a tiger, a serpent and a goblin and set them upon Shiva. Shiva skinned the tiger alive, wore the serpent around his neck and laughing, jumped on the goblin and began dancing on his back. This stunned the sages. He continued to dance wildly issuing tremors throughout the world, shaking the heavens and splitting the mountains. The gods abandoned the heavens to see the dance. As Shiva danced the sages realized that Shiva had flayed the tiger of their ambition, tamed the serpent of their passion and crushed the goblin of their ego. His dance captured the rhythm of life, the cosmic cycle of generation, organization and destruction. It encapsulated the essence of cosmic truth or santana dharma.

In his hands Shiva as Lord Nadaraja holds a drum that makes the final sound of death as well as the primeval vibrations of life. In his left hand Nadaraja holds Agni, a fire that burns and destroys yet also illuminates and energizes. Around him is a fiery prahabhamandala, which is the great wheel of samsara filled with the infinite cycle of births and rebirths. The sages looked at Shiva in awe. He came be known as Shiva Nadaraja the lord of Dance.

Did You Know ?
Arudra is the star that names one of the 27 lunar mansions of Hindu astrology. It is known as Shiva's star, a cosmic representation of His third eyes, red and intense.

Called Betelgeuse in the West (a medieval Arabic name), it fascinates and consternates modern astronomers. Though it is one of the most studied of suns, it defies description, as it changes in brightness, size and even shape with rythmic gusto.

Scientists call Arudra "mysterious" and "elusive" in their published works, informally calling this massive orb "the dancing star." Hindus might find the name apt - after all, Siva is Nataraja, King of Dance.

Arudra is part of the constelation of Orion, shinning as the brightest red star in the sky. Because of its blazing choreography, there is no certainty about the latest calculations point to around 600 light-years. Siva's star is colosal. For sake of camparison, if it were the size a football stadium, Earth would be a spec of dust, and the Sun no larger than a mango.

Arudra is nearing a transitional point in its evolution. Tomorrow, perhaps, or several thousand years from now - it will enter a supernova stage. In that act, marking the height of his cosmic performance, Arudra will convert most of itself into light and cosmic rays, sending its energy out to the universe in a blinding flash. When it will outshine the full moon in our sky for months and be visible even during the day.

After that, Arudra will be a small neutron star, unimaginably dense, spinning incredibly fast. Just a cup of matter from a neutron star's core weighs more than all the mountains of the Himalas combined.

Mantra to chant at the time of the birth of Shiva during the Arudra Darshan day is Om / Hmmm SiVaYaNaMa to help you to get rid of your old consciousness and establish a divine consciousness.

Vaikunda Ekadasi : Heaven [sorgam] Will Open on Dec 29th 2017

Heaven's Gates will Open
~ By Vijayakumar Alagappan

Vaikunda Ekadasi is the 11th Waxing Moon that falls in the Tamil month of Margazhi. Vaikundam is the sacred abode of Lord Maha Vishnu. The Vaishnava traditions hail Vaikundam as the ultimate place to enter and rest. This day is the day to open the gates to cross over into salvation. 

There are 24 Ekadasi or 11th Moons in a year and Vaikunda Eakadasi is the most powerful and looked forward to the most as many seek spiritual redemption, or rescue from the current confusion and suffering; a place of peace.

It is believed that if one observes Vaikunda Ekadasi then the gates to heaven are kept open for when that person's soul leaves the
physical body. The soul ends its cycle of death and rebirth by attaining the ultimate salvation, free from this mortal coil.

As it occurs in Margazhi, the month of 'Twilight in Heaven' it is seen as the time the gods rest and when we pray earnestly and sincerely, it has more effect on this day as the spiritual energy will come to us more directly. This Margazhi month is a divine and highly spiritual month when the mind and soul can turn to god within.

Vaikunda Ekadasi in cosmic terms
Vaikunda ekadasi is the day of cosmic significance that of the earth coming in line with the galactic centre, Sagittarius (Dhanusu rasi) and the cosmic centre. In other words, on this day, the earth will be at the outer most point from the centre of our galaxy and the nearest point to the outer space from where we, the entire systen of ours evolved and is moving outward. 

Keep the Gates Open
It is believed that if one observes Vaikunda Ekadasi then the gates to heaven are kept open for when that person's soul leaves the physical body. The soul ends its cycle of death and rebirth by attaining the ultimate salvation, free from this mortal coil.





No Sleep
Staunch Vaishnava devotees who observe Vaikunda Ekadasi fasting do not sleep. They spend the whole night at Vishnu temples or by singing prayers or listening stories dedicated to Lord Vishnu.

Fasting on Vaikunda Ekadasi
Though there are 24 Ekadashis in a year, observing fast on Vaikunda Ekadasi day offers equal benefits of observing all the other 23 Ekadashis during the year. Devotees observe a complete fast on the day, awake during the whole night and offer prayers such as Vishnu Ashtotharam and Vishnu Sahasranamam Stotra of Lord Vishnu. However, if it is not possible to fast completely, one can consume fruits and milk. Food made from rice is to be avoided during the day. The fast is to be broken on the following day. It is believed that even a partial or total abstinence from food on Ekadasi is rewarded with bliss. You can also opt for a partial fast by avoiding food made of rice. There is no need to observe total fast, just be hungry and alert. The spiritual energy at this time comes directly. Be alert.

Significance of Fasting on the 11th Tithi / Moon
According to scientific research, it is known that the air pressure on the earth varies to extreme limits on both the new moon (Amavasai) and the full moon (Pournami) day. This is because of the orbital path combination of the sun, moon and earth.

This can be observed by the change in the nature of the tidal waves on the new moon and full moon days. The waves are very high and rough, but from the next day onwards, the waves become calm, an indication that the pressure has also receded.

No Sleep : Staunch Vaishnava devotees who observe Vaikunda Ekadasi fasting do not sleep. They send the whole night at Vishnu temple or by singing, prayers or listening stories dedicated to Lord Vishnu. 

Note : One should avoid consuming rice, grains, beans, cereals, certain vegetables and sices on the day. Foods allowed when artial fasting on Ekadasi includes fruits, milk, nuts and root vegetables.

The significance of 11th tithi fasting can be explained in 2 ways:
1) According to science, it takes about 3-4 days for the food that we eat today to reach our brain (for the brain to understand the food intake). Now, if we eat light/fast on 11th tithi days, that intake will reach the brain correspondingly on the New moon/full moon day.

2) Another explanation for 11th thiti fasting is that compared to any other day of the moon cycle, atmospheric pressure is lowest on 11th tithi days. Thus, this is the best time to fast and cleanse the bowel system. If we fast on any other day (except on Tuesday, Friday & Shasthi Tithi days), the high pressure/strain may damage our system.

ekadasi vrata samam vrata nasti jagattraye
anicchaya'pi yat krtva gatir evam vidha'vayoh
ekadasi vratam ye tu bhakti bhavena kurvate
na jane kim bhavet tesam vasudeva anukampaya
(Padma Purana)

In the three worlds, there is no kind of fasting which is even comparable to the Ekadasi fast. Even if one performs this fast without a proper attitude, he achieves the Supreme Abode. Anyone who fasts on Ekadasi day, with full devotion, what happens to him by the mercy of the Supreme Lord, I can not say (how much merit gets cannot be described).

Saturn Transit effect For 12 Rasis - Sani Payerchi from 17th Dec 2017 till 28th March 2020

Image result for lord saneeswara images

Planets play the roles of God, Guru and Judge
God - Sun (Surya) : God has been worshipped, because He is the life-giver, energy-provider, sustainer of all beings on the planet earth, remover of darkness of the soul and mind and provider of inner light and happiness. In Tantric Astrology Sun symbolizes God. The Sun-God, that pervades the whole Universe, is presented for us, the Earthlings, as the Sun-god that shines its benevolence upon us, by giving us days and nights, seasons, rain and shines and also the immense essential heat energy to make the life on Earth possible. An exalted Sun well placed in the horoscope with other favourable factors removes darkness.

Guru - Jupiter (Guru) : The Guru is worshipped, as he provides us with the knowledge, wisdom to do good deeds and thus be closer to God. He is considered second only to God. He is the messenger between God and man. Jupiter is the great guru or the second Sun. The guru shows us the right path.

Judge - Saturn (Sani) : The Judge weighs our deeds and misdeeds, and gives judgment in accordance with our Karma. He is symbolized by the woman with a blindfold in her eyes and a balance in one hand and a sword in the other. If our good deeds outweigh our bad, the sword does not fall on us, but if bad deeds outweigh our good, then we are punished. Saturn is given this great distinction, because he carries out the law of Karma.

Significance of Saturn Transit
Saturn is the slowest moving planet. It takes 30 years for him to complete one cycle of his revolution through the 12 zodiacs. He spends roughly about 2 ½ years in each sign.

There is no reason to fear Saturn and an average lethargic type may, of course, experience Saturn as a hard task-master. And for someone Saturn may feel demanding – and slow with its rewards. But there will be rewards, eventually. They may be slow in coming, because Saturn first wants to test you to be sure that you are in earnest, that you will not revert back to your old lazy tricks. You have to have deeper motives, a true desire to grow even when there are no carrots dangling in front of you. You have to show Saturn that you are doing something for doing’s sake, not because you are expecting Saturn to pat you on your back.

The predictions given below for each Rashi is general in nature. Do not be afraid if Saturn is adversely placed for your Rashi. Please check your Dasha & Bhukti currently operating and other planetary movements during the period. If the Dasha & Bhukti is good, many adverse predictions may not happen or will be mitigated. If you have further doubts please consult your family astrologer.

Lord Sani
According to Hindu mythology Shani (Saturn) is the son of Surya the Sun God and grand son of Sage Kashyapa and Aditi. A Demi God, Shani was born to Lord Sun and Chaaya (illusory wife). Lord Yama (Yama-Dharmaraja) and Goddess Yamuna (River Goddess) are His siblings born to Surya and His wife Sanjna Devi. Tapathi (River Goddess) is his sister.

Lord Shani is worshipped and adored in Hindu religion, by people from all walks of life and has also become a point of contention for their grief and suffering. More than anything else we find millions of people visiting Navagraha temples, rather out of scare, performing austerities to appease Lord Shani. He is considered as a personification of restrictions, adversities and limitations. Regarded as the most dreaded planet for obstruction, distress and calamity, people believe that if there is one, planet who can make a king out of a pauper and vice versa, it is Shani. He is more misunderstood and also more confusing entity in our mundane existence.

When we look at the celestial role of Lord Shani, He is a Dandanaadhikari with a task of dispensation of justice according to one’s Karma phala and punishing the evil doers. It is more or less like a Home portfolio and Lord Shani is absolutely unbiased in this regard. Perhaps, Lord Shani is the best teacher in life. There is an ancient maxim "Dandam Dasa Gunam Bhaveth". When all the methods of mending a person are exhausted like Sama, Dana, Bedha, and the person doesn't heed and keeps on doing evils, as a last resort the Nature takes its own course and invokes the Dandam (Stick) in the form of Lord Shani (Saturn). No doubt, He is a task master. He is an agent of Karma and an administrator of Karmic law. He is only discharging the role given to him. The best way to get discharged from Karma is to encounter it and Lord Shani is the best agent to help us in this regard. Saturn reminds that in the Universal Karmic law everyone has to pay for their misdeeds.

Saturn rules over food grains, agriculture, engineering, metals (iron), mines (coal), blue/black colour, hills, forests, valleys, sesame seeds, Shami tree, Sisira Ruthu, Vaata tattva (windy in nature), physical disability, knees, ankles, thighs and muscles etc. Saturn will be strong during night time, Dakshinayana, and Krishna paksha (dark half) of the month and on Saturday. His direction is towards west. Above list is only indicative but not exhaustive.

Tantric way to appease this planets for their blessing
Saturn - Learn to be humble, work hard and serve others as a duty, without expecting nothing in return. Practice concentration, austerities, fasting and seclusion for spiritual strengthening. Serve the sick, afflicted and poor people. Visit to your favourite temple every week and spend at least 1 hour in the temple.
Chant Hmmm Saniswaraya Pothri / Shram for 108 times every Saturday to connect Lord Saniswaran and receive His Blessing

Lord Hanuman's Birthday is on 17th Dec 2017

View Image

Birthday of the Gods and Goddesses are important as the stars resided by the particular deity is close to the Earth plane on that day and it provides you with an opportunity to establish a heart connection with the deity. Lord Hanuman is the eleventh Rudra or the divine incarnation of Lord Shiva who symbolizes strength and loyalty. Lord Hanumans divine power also provides you with courage and inner peace. The Monkey Faced God helps protect you from both foreseen as well as the unforeseen dangers. Curses and 'evil eyes' are no match for him. His blessings will protect you in all of your endeavors. In India he is considered to be a 'Guardian Deity'.

He is the epitome of devotion and dedication. The devotees of Lord Rama start their prayers by first offering their salutations to Lord Hanuman. This was a unique status he acquired purely based on his unparalleled devotion and dedication to Lord Ram.

He was born on Moola Nakshatra, on the Ammavasai (New Moon) day in Margazhi month (December 15 - January 15). This day represents one of the most powerful days to attain Lord Hanuman's blessings and bring positive changes into your life. He has the power to change your destiny and remove your karma. Praying and offering ritual to him directly, indirectly influences Saturn to stop influencing you!

One who is devoted and constantly prays to Hanuman gets his many blessings covering the material and spiritual, of strength, intelligence, skillful speech, good name and fame, courage, protection, good health, longevity, and energy.

Hanuman's Guru
As he grew up, Hanuman sought to educate himself and for this purpose he chose Surya the sun god as his guru saying: "You see everything there is to see in the universe and you know everything there is to know. Please accept me as your pupil." Surya hesitated. "I don't have the time," he said. "During the day I ride across the sky, and at night I am too tired to do anything."

"Then teach me as you ride across the sky during the day. I will fly in front of your chariot, facing you from dawn to dusk." Impressed by Hanuman's zeal and determination, Surya accepted him as his pupil. Thus Hanuman flew before the chariot of the sun god, withstanding the awesome glare, until he became well versed in the four books of knowledge, the six systems of philosophies, the sixty-four arts or kalaigal and the one hundred and eight occult mysteries of the Tantras.

Hanuman's Yogic Mastery
If yoga is the ability to control one's mind then Hanuman is the quintessential yogi having a perfect mastery over his senses, achieved through a disciplined lifestyle tempered by the twin streams of celibacy and selfless devotion (bhakti). In fact, Hanuman is the ideal Brahmachari (one who follows the path of Brahma), if ever there was one. He is also a perfect karma yogi since he performs his actions with detachment, acting as an instrument of destiny rather than being impelled by any selfish motive.

Hanuman is the 1st Teacher for Pranayama and Surya Namaskaram Practices
Pranayama is the ability to control one's breath so that the inhalation and exhalation of air is rhythmic. Vayu, the god of air and wind, first taught pranayama to his son Hanuman, who in turn taught it to mankind.
The Surya Namaskaram (salutation to the sun) too, was devised by Hanuman as a greeting for his teacher Surya.

Hanuman's Ashtama Siddhi Mastery
Tantra represents the occult science of Hinduism. With the aid of mantras and yantras TantricYogis (practitioners of Tantra) channelise the powers of the cosmos for the advantage of humanity. Tantric Yogis believe that Hanuman is the most accomplished of their lot having achieved the much-sought after Ashtama Siddhi (eight occult powers):

1). Anima - The ability to reduce his size.
2). Mahima - Ability to increase his size.
3). Laghima - The ability to become weightless.
4). Garima - Ability to increase weight.
5). Prapti - The ability to travel anywhere and acquire anything.
6). Parakamya - Irresistible will power.
7). Vastiva - Mastery over all creatures.
8). Isitva - Ability to become god like with the power to create and destroy.

The Ramayana abounds with tales illustrating Hanuman's mastery over each of these siddhas (occult powers). Not surprisingly, he is reverently deified as a Mahsiddha.

The legend behind Hanuman’s immortality
According to the epic Ramayana, Lord Hanuman was sent to Sri Lanka to know the state of Mother Sita to assure her that Lord Rama will soon come over to save her. Hanuman reached Sri Lanka and saw a very worried Mother Sita sitting in a garden. He appeared before Mother Sita and tried to convince her bringing all the details of her life with Rama. But, Sita took him as Ravana in disguise and did not believe her words until he gave her the ring of Sri Rama. She became overwhelmed with joy and memories of Lord Rama on seeing the ring. Mother Sita felt sorry for suspecting Hanuman. She at once called him Maruti and blessed Hanuman that he will be immortal as long as the world exists. It is believed that Hanuman the power of humility is still around us.

One who is devoted and constantly prays to Hanuman gets his many blessings covering the material and spiritual, of strength, intelligence, skillful speech, good name and fame, courage, protection, good health, longevity, and energy.

Lord Hanuman Controls Saturn
Hanuman’s powers are so great that even Saturn fears to influence him and his devotees. In fact those who surrender at Lord Hanuman's feet will never be troubled by any of the 9 planets. He is considered the greatest of the greatest heroes as well as the servant of servants. He is totally selfless and without his own agenda. His power is so great that he controls Saturn with his tail!
Recite any of the manthras below for 108 times or more to connect with Hanuman and receive His special blessings.
Hmmm/Om Hanumantaye Namaha

Hmmm/Om Anjanayaye Namaha

Hmmm/Om Shree Maruthi Hanumantaye Nammaha

Legends have it that during the warfare of Ramayana, the younger brother of Lord Rama, Lakshman, was injured seriously and was suffering for life. To save his life, Lord Rama ordered Lord Hanuman to bring the medicine from Sanjeevi Hills (a hill well known for its medicinal quality) which could heal the wound. Lord Hanuman started his journey towards Sanjeevi at once. On his way to the hills, Lord Saturn appeared in front of Hanuman claiming that Lakshmana would have to experience the effect of Saturn transit at this particular time. He also stopped Hanuman from continuing his journey to the hills. Hanuman on hearing the reason put forth by Saturn tried explaining him the importance of Lakshmana's presence in the combat.

Neither Saturn was ready to lend his ears to Lord Hanuman's explanations; nor Hanuman was not able to control his rage in turn. This is when Lord Hanuman took full control of Saturn's power by stepping onto Saturn under his mighty feet. This incident stands proof enough to show that lord Hanuman was so powerful that he could control even the most fierce Saturn!

There are only 2 Gods with the power to control the 9 planets, and especially the influence of Saturn one is Kala Bhairava and the other is Lord Hanuman.

Hanuman's Bhakti Yoga
Once Sita gave Hanuman a necklace of pearls. After a while, the residents of the city observed him breaking the necklace and inspecting each pearl minutely. Intrigued they asked him the reason. "I am looking for Rama and Sita," replied Hanuman. Laughing at his apparent naivety the spectators pointed out to him that the royal couple was at the moment seated on the imperial throne. "But Rama and Sita are everywhere, including my heart" wondered aloud the true bhakta. Not understanding the depth of his devotion, they further teased him: "So Rama and Sita live in your heart, can you show them to us?" Unhesitatingly, Hanuman stood up and with his sharp talons tore open his chest. There, within his throbbing heart, the astonished audience were taken aback to find enshrined an image of Rama and Sita. Never again did anyone make fun of Hanuman's devotion.

Hanuman has two forms, namely, Hanuman the servitor and Hanuman the courageous one. The servitor form is the one in which Hanuman stands in front of Rama with His hands folded in obeisance, His tail resting on the ground. The stance of Hanuman as the courageous one is that of an energetic warrior ready for battle. His tail is upright and His right hand is turned towards His head. Sometimes even a demon or a malefic such as Saturn affliction is depicted as being crushed under His feet . To overcome problems of possession, black magic, etc. Hanuman is worshipped in the courageous form.

Karthigai Festival is on 2nd December in 2017

Thirukarthigai/Karthigai Deepam comes on the tamil month Karthigai (mid November - mid December) on Pournami day (Full moon day). Throughout the month lamps are lit in the front of the house in the evening. On the Thirukarthigai / Karthigai Deepam day the whole house is decorated with the oil lamps. Thiruvannamalai is famous for Karthigai Deepam. Karthigai is on 2nd December in 2017.

Story behind Karthigai

Once Brahma and Vishnu due to the ego started arguing with each other " who is the greatest". Both claimed to be the greatest, instead of doing their duty. At that time the God Shiva appeared in the form of fire and told them whoever finds the top or bottom of the fire is the greatest. Brahma took the form of Annam (a bird) and tried to find the top of the frle pillar. Vishnu took the form of Varaha( giant pig) and tried to see the bottom of the pillar. As the God has no limit in his size or power, both of them could not see either top or bottom of the fire. When their ego went down and they prayed the God, He appeared before them. The day in which the God appeared as a pillar of fire is Thirukarthigai / Karthigai Deepam. Lord Shiva appeared as a hill (Arunachala Hill) at Tiruvannamalai in Tamil Nadu. Indeed, the very names `Tiruvannamalai' and `Arunachala' translate as `holy fire hill.' The Shivalinga in the temple here is the agni linga. The tiny lamps lit during the Karthigai festival (Karthigai Deepam) are believed to be the miniature replicas of the fire linga.


On this day, with specific astrological configuration, a special light splashes the entire earth plane with a karma dissolving light. Only the sages and evolved being can see this light as it is of a different frequency than what the human eye can detect. To replicate this spiritual happening a huge lamp is lit on the top of the mountain with several thousands of gallons of oil, hand carried by pilgrims coming from all over India. This viradham indicates the non measurable infiniteness of the God and shows that the God is the light that will drive away our ignorance. Lamps are lit in the houses to pray His "Jyothi Swarupam".

Another popular legend is that the day is the birthday of Lord Muruga.
Lord Muruga, also known as Skanda, Subrahamaniya and Kartik, was born as six different babies to Lord Shiva. The six babies were looked after by the Six Karthigai stars and the six children were later joined to a single force by Goddess Parvati.

Krittika is the six stars or the Pleiades cluster. As Muruga was born as six different babies and later joined into one He is popularly known as Aarumugan in Tamil culture.

The Ritual
On Thirukarthigai, clean your houses and draw kolam (rangoli) in the front of the house. Then place the lamp on it during Sun set. Before that, the lamps (Agal) must be placed in the pooja and lighted. After deeparathana is done yo can put the lamps in different places in the house. People of Tamil Nadu celebrate Karthigai Deepam for three days. Some people celebrate it, extending from the Deepavali festival. The number of lamps is doubled every day from the day of Diwali and they end up with numerous lamps on the day of Karthigai Deepam.

Don’ts for lighting lamp

· Never place and light a lamp in the south direction. It will bring inauspicious events...

· After lighting the lamp don’t rub the excess oil on your hair; (it will make you loose your wealth) general belief. Also rubbing in your own dress is also not good. So keep a piece of cloth in your pooja room and rub the excess oil in it.

· Never keep any lamp directly on the kolam. Always keep it on a plate ( can be brass, silver not steel).

· If you like keep a few grains of raw rice below the lamp - this is necessary only when you do vilakku poojai etc & not necessary every day.

· Do not use Groundnut Oil.

Let the light of Karthigai Deepam illuminate the darkness of ignorance and unhappiness and bring in enlightenment to our lives with joy and prosperity to start the much awaited Golden Age.
