Decoding Ancient Scriptures, Texts and Proverbs…. What they really wanted to convey! Part 2

Picking up from where we left on Part 1. Still on Brahma.

So, Brahma despite being the creator is never worshipped. How many temples do we see of Brahma? Well legend has two stories to testify and to lead us further. First one is about the greed to ace. It says that once Brahma and Vishnu were in an argument as to who is a greater God. Brahma the creator or Vishnu the Sustainer?  ( I personally think its SHIVA the destroyer… But my views don’t really count hereπŸ˜„) So Shiva intervened in the arguement and challenges both the lords to reach the highest and inner most part of his Shivling in the most giant manifested form.  While Lord Vishnu choses to simply worship Shiva, Brahma decides to cheat (Logic and psychology has it, its easier for the maker of the rules to actually break it than the ones following them). He falsly claims to have accomplished the task and also convinces Ketaki flower to testify the same. Shiva finds out the truth and curses Brahma that the one who is not pure and true wont be worshipped. Also, Ketaki flower wont ever be used in any rituals. The custom follows till date. Second story is about sexual desire and Saraswati river which we will cover in another post. So he is never really worshipped.

Soon post creation of the Brahmaand, Brahma requested Shiva to part with sati as world needed energy. I personally think all the energy in the universe comes from a single source – Sati. Call it a goddess, or call it the ultimate power…. Does that make a difference?  

Well this is what legend says. In my opinion, the reasoning is different.

Who do we worship? The one who fulfills our PRESENT NEEDS. 

We are thankful for Lord Brahma for creating us. But thats about it. How many of us think of the soil or seeds that created the massive tree? Just alike, we worship Vishnu because He helps us sustain. We worship Lord Shiva because we fear destruction or death. Over a passage of time, people forgot the significance of the one who created and emphasis jumped on survival and sustainability. AFTER ALL, ISNT MOVING ON THE PIVOTAL TASK OF OUR EXISTENCE? Hence Vishnu and Shiva are placed in our shrines at home as well as outside. Brahma is known for his scientific planning. He planned the world or say worlds. I strongly believe there are more worlds than just us. There are more universes than just ours which makes it Multi-verse. 

So do we have any ancient Scriptures to testify my theory and belief of a multi verse?  Well, my research says yes there is. Our books and scripts have so many secrets hidden within them. We just need to rake it up. I am trying to do just that through my blog amd extensive research. Lets discuss that in the next Part of my blog. 

Decoding Ancient Scriptures, Texts and Proverbs…. What they really wanted to convey! part 1

The blog is about decoding Ancient Scriptures, Texts and Proverbs. Although we may never know what Past really wanted to convey, we can add 2 + 2 and browse through the wonderful legacies left behind for us in the form of Veda, Purans, Upnishads, Maha kavyas and hearsay stories carried forward by our ancestors. 

It will be a several part series where we will discuss only few points in one post.

Lets begin from the beginning. Brahma! 

The origins of the Lord which is one of the TRIMURTI are undefined. He is often termed as the ULTIMATE REALITY (Brahman). Pandits are often termed as Brahmin. Their mention is seen several times in Vedic Scripts. We can safely presume Him to be a Vedic God.

Despite being such an important aspect of evolution, how many of us worship Him? There too is a reason which we will discuss in the next post.

Big bang never created Universe, may be earth or even solar system but certainly not the entire Universe or Multi -verse. It always existed and will continue to exist. Vedic Scripts also refer to Parallel realities. As per calculations, one day of Brahma equals 4320 million years. This span is called a Kalpa. Each Kalpa is further divided into Chaturyugs (4 yugs). Naming them is easy… First one is Krita yug or Satya yug. Second is Treta, making third Dvapar and fourth Kali yug. Due to different calculation systems, the starting point of any yug is not clear in our scripts but this blog is an effort to join the dots, research the past and arrive at the Primeval Truth. There is a clear mention in Mahabharat about the beginning of Kaliyug. Which makes Krishna’s demise the end of Dvapar you. Approximately, 14 years after Krishna’s death in his earthly form, the Kaliyug commensed. According to a researcher Ludo Rocher, the total of all yugs is somewhere close to 4320000 years. 

Watch out this space and blog for more on Mahabharat, Yugs, Gita and Manvantaras.

Neerja and Jai Gangajal!  Thats the Woman of the present age! That defines me…Us…WEman power! Not some crazy series that shows us weeping more then breathingπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
We are more than that!
While we keep love, emit strength we also know how to give back…
While we are sensitive and warm, we can turn our back to non sense and dumbo πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ,
While we “pull” where it’s clearly written “push”, we read minds of our loved ones like Professor X from X-men πŸ˜ƒ,
While we r expert at making chapatis, we can manage a company like minions…

We may be confused at picking up bellies or stiletto πŸ‘ … But when our loved ones are in danger, we are very clear as to how we should kiss their pain good bye!
We may take hours to get dressed, but it takes us micro seconds when our Lil tiny ones says, ” mumma bhuk lagi🐣🐣
That’s us… Rocksolid,  milestone-ish, homeministerically birbal-ishπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

For better and for worse, We are We…
Cheers to us being able to make a life and bring a life in d world!
Cheers to Womanhood!
Happy Women’s DayπŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»
