Vedic Culture with customs, traditions and refined qualities

The Meaning of Culture Each of the religions of the world has its own culture, with many customs, traditions and refined qualities. The Hindu culture is a culture of love, respect, honoring others and humbling one’s own ego so that the inner nature, which is naturally pure and modest, will shine forth. Here we have described some of the important faith and behaviors of Hindu community. RESPECT AND REVERENCE RESPECT FOR ELDERS: Respect for elders is a keystone of Hindu culture. This genuine acknowledgment of seniority is demonstrated through endearing customs, such as sitting to the left of elders, bringing gifts on special occasions, not sitting while they are standing, not speaking excessively, not yawning or stretching, not putting one’s opinions forward strongly, not contradicting or arguing, seeking their advice and blessings, giving them first choice in all matters, even serving their food first.

What is Phrenology science?

5000 years ago in the times of Vedic era, people were focused on just one issue, how to develop the human consciousness.

Any major variation in our thinking patterns or any action which overwhelms our Psyche trigger a change in the characteristic ... Read More »

Vedic Marriage & its scientific significance?

In Hindu dharma, marriage is viewed as a sacrament and not a contract. Hindu marriage is a life-long commitment of one wife and one husband, and is the strongest social bond that takes place between a man and a woman. Grahastha Ashram (the householder stage), the second of the four stages of life begins when a man and a woman marry and start a household. Now let us consider the elaborate process of the marriage according to the Veda, and its scientific significance. A day before the wedding the palm and feet of the bride are decorated with “Mahendi”. A canopy or mandapa decorated with flowers is erected at the place of wedding. On the wedding morning, various ablutionary rituals are performed on both the bride and the groom in their own homes. Their bodies are anointed with turmeric, sandalwood paste and oils, which cleanse the body, soften the skin, ... Read More »

Science & Saints

India´s Contributions Acknowledged “We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made.” – Albert Einstein. Surgery “The surgery of the ancient Indian physicians was bold and skilful. A special branch of surgery was devoted to rhinoplasty or operations for improving deformed ears, noses and forming new ones, which European surgeons have now borrowed”.-Sir W.Hunter (British Surgeon, 1718-1783) Cosmology & psychology According to India’s ancient texts, around 3000 BCE sage Kapil founded both cosmology and psychology. He shed light on the Soul, the subtle elements of matter and creation. His main idea was that essential nature (prakrti) comes from the eternal (purusha) to develop all of creation. No deeper a view of the cosmos has ever been developed. Further, his philosophy of Sankhya philosophy also covered the secret levels of the psyche, including mind, intellect and ego, ... Read More »

What is Garbhadhana Samskara?

According to Varnashrama (the civilized society) the civilized people in society would perform the purificatory ritual before conceiving a child.  This ritual is more or less seeking the blessings of all the family members, friends, well wishers and ultimately the Supreme Lord Vishnu (or Krishna) to get a good child in the family.  This is performed the day husband and wife decide to unite for conceiving a child.  In civilized society and espcially in cultured families, the birth of child was never an accident due to unrestricted indulgence in so called free sex life – even between duly married husband and wife.  There is no question of performing this ritual for unmarried boys and girls staying together without being married and indulging in sex life.  That is not supported in civilized society of Varnashram. Garbhadhana Samskara according to Vedas: The ritual Garbhadana is called by Sankhayana Grihya Sutra as Chaturtikarma. ... Read More »

Reading Sanskrit Improves Brain Functioning

Reading Sanskrit Improves Brain Functioning by Brynne Sissom The physiological effects of reading Sanskrit are similar to those experienced during the Transcendental Meditation® technique, according to research recently completed by Dr. Fred Travis, director of the ERG/psychophysiology lab of Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA. Dr. Travis asked his test subjects to read passages from the Bhagavad-Gita in Sanskrit and in modern foreign languages (Spanish, French, or German). In each case they could pronounce the sounds but did not know the meaning. He measured brain wave patterns (ERG), heart and breath rate, and galvanic skin resistance during two reading sessions and during a 15-minute session of the Transcendental Meditation technique. He found that while they read Sanskrit their physiology was similar to those measured during the Transcendental Meditation technique, but significantly different from reading a modern language. Their skin resistance steadily increased during reading Sanskrit and during practice ... Read More »

A NASA article on Sanskrit

A NASA article on Sanskrit Modern scientists hail the ancient language of the gods as the only unambiguous natural language on the planet This interesting article refers to a NASA article on Sanskrit in AI(Artificial Intelligence) Magazine in Spring of 1985 written by NASA researcher, Rick Briggs. In ancient India the intention to discover truth was so consuming, that in the process, they discovered perhaps the most perfect tool for fulfilling such a search that the world has ever known — the Sanskrit language. Of all the discoveries that have occurred and developed in the course of human history, language is the most significant and probably the most taken for granted. Without language, civilization could obviously not exist. On the other hand, to the degree that language becomes sophisticated and accurate in describing the subtlety and complexity of human life, we gain power and effectiveness in meeting its challenges. The access to ... Read More »
