  1. What is my school of thought, may I ask? You sound like one of his brain washed followers. Where did he get the title of a sant from? I do not intentionally want to sound rude, however, it does bother me when people refuse to acknowledge the real gems of the panth but instead follow a missionary like dhadri as though they were sheep.
  2. Did you completely miss that he is called "Sant Ranjit Singh Ji Dhadrianwale"? Oh the irony, like guru like chela lol. Get yourself a brain, man, it'll serve you well in the long run.
  3. I read a Sakhi once that a sant said that waheguru mantar should be done compared to Gaitri mantar. Gurbani (Gaitri mantar) can be read to attain something, whereas waheguru mantar should be recited during meditation to attain the divine.
  4. I think it is Bali (the king who appears in Vaman avtar). The story goes like this... When Bali was defeated, Vishnu ji was pleased with his devotion and thus gave him a boon of immortality (making him one of the 7 chiranjeevi), promised him that he will be the next Indar and also made him the emporer of the Asurs.
  5. http://veda.wikidot.com/homa That is quite understandable.
  6. That is indeed true. https://www.speakingtree.in/blog/havan-for-cleansing-the-environment I also read that in the mahabharat text a long while ago.
  7. Parents and husbands also have their own duties towards their children and wife, respectively. I was just talking about this specific topic. However, you are right about abusive husbands but the opposite also happens. If a wife has an obligation towards her husband the husband also has an obligation towards his wife. I was merely speaking from a spiritual perspective, outlining the reason behind this practice and why it is recommended. However, in today's society your concerns are quite valid. If a woman is told/explained to view her husband as god, her husband also has to be told/explained to follow the duties and role of a man in marriage. I fully agree with your point that it goes for both genders to respect and trust each other in marriage. P.S. there is nothing wrong with being a "momma's boy", if your parents are genuine
  8. As @paapiman has mentioned on this thread that, as it is a child's duty to "worship" their parents, in a sense, even so is the wife's duty to worship her husband. She is not doing it for the husband but rather herself. No one expects a woman to worship them, it is rather a duty for women, in this concept. A parent does not expect their children to worship them nor a teacher expects worship from a student, it is the duty of the other party. Different strategies have been developed over time to keep the human mind in check. It is quite evident that the male and female minds work differently, hence different techniques have been prescribed. This technique works rather well for the female mindset. In my humble opinion, this is not oppression of women or a technique aimed to make men feel superior, it is rather a way to reach the ultimate goal of enlightenment. Even if the husband is abusive, etc. this technique still works. As a wife is the central point of a householder's lifestyle, without her there wouldn't be such a lifestyle. It is easier for her to follow this technique, more so during the olden times when women were housewives. At the end of the day, a woman gets to choose her own actions so it's completely up to her to choose this path or not.
  9. The "pati-parmeshwar" concept is more about salvation than anything else, to be honest. It is a way in which a woman can keep her mind under control and persevere towards enlightenment. It is a way in which a woman can loose her ego. She agrees to her husband and serves him with devotion resulting in one-pointed focus, only on her husband. This devotion becomes a barrier against kaam. As she continues to serve him, she forgets herself in the devotion thus she looses her ego. During the ancient times, women were not permitted to read spiritual texts so they were liberated through this way. One must try to understand this ancient philosophy from a spiritual point of view as it is spiritual in its essence. Even if the husband is abusive, etc. a wife can still be liberated as she is liberated by her devotion rather than the man, himself. However, a husband should always strive to be a good husband for his wife, none the less.
  10. The white society is literally crumbling under the pressure of feminism, these men need to put their foot down before it gets worse than that. Even India and other Asian countries are now imitating the helpless western males. It's sickening and sad.
  11. Women are more lustful than men that is why in all cultures virginity for women is called their dignity. That is also why "pati-parmeshwar" concept was developed for them. The ancients were much smarter than you think, their society was controlled. https://www.psychologytoday.com/au/blog/psyched/200805/why-do-women-have-erotic-rape-fantasies I never knew this until I read a verse from Mohini avatar about rape and wanted to research more to see if there were any studies on it. Today, feminism has ruined us, "equal rights for women" more like encouraging women to become men, something which is against nature. That is why our society is falling apart, however that's another topic and rather off track for this particular thread.
  12. I'm not sure if Gurbani clearly talks about this, however, in SGGS it is mentioned that at the start of creation that Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh were created at the start and will later be destroyed when the great parloh comes. It is important to note that there is different types of parloh (some types are caused by Shiv ji, as he is the destroyer but there is one caused by Akal Purakh himself where not even Brahma, Shiv and Vishnu remain- the universe is destroyed completely to start a new). In the 5th Chapter of Kurma Purana is written as follows: At the close of that period, all living beings get dissolved in Prakrti, their source. Hence, this is called the reabsorption into Prakrti (Prakrta Pratisaicara) by wise men. It is said that in due course of time, Brahma, Narayana and Isa (Rudra), all the three, become merged in Prakrti and their remanifestation also is to take place. Thus, Brahma, the elements (or all living beings)and even Vasudeva and Sankara are created by Kala (time). He alone devours them again. This Lord Kala is beginningless, endless, free from old age or decay and immortal. He is the Supreme Ruler because of his omnipresence, independence and his state of being the soul of all. There have been many Brahmas, Rudras, Narayanas and others, but there is one Lord controller of all viz. Kala. He is omniscient. So states the Śruti (Vedas). Also check out this website for a better insight: https://www.jagatgururampalji.org/gyan-ganga-river-of-knowledge/what-is-the-age-of-brahma-vishnu-shiva-brahm-kaal-par-brahm/ I admit that it is confusing as different gods are described at the end which we might have little to no knowledge of, hence I recommend you read this, please: https://www.speakingtree.in/blog/essence-of-shrimad-bhagvad-gita It is quite hard to understand, that is why I think Gurbani is special in a sense that it does not bother with other gods as much and only talks of Akal Purakh. Humans in Kaliyuga do not have enough intelligence to understand the deep rooted philosophies of the Vedas, resulting in worship of lower deities. However, gurbani goes straight to the point and stops us from wasting time learning about deep philosophies which go straight over our heads. Gurbani is the true essence and message which is deeply rooted in all the vedas, upanishad, simritis, shatras, etc. It is the divine knowledge; the eternal truth. One may read Vedas, etc. again and again but it is hard to grasp the knowledge for us low beings, hence guru ji gave us low lives gurbani which is powerful enough to liberate us when everything fails. The vedas, Puranas, Yajnas, Yoga, etc. is great to learn but cannot deliver from this deep ocean of sorrows in this age (Kaliyuga) but could in the previous ages, hence one must fully devote oneself to the Perfect God, through naam simran and Gurbani.
  13. In Vedas and Puranas, the cycle of the yugas is described as depicted in the above diagram. This is the diagram he is going by. I have never encountered the description of this in any ancient Sanatan scriptures when reading them. Moreover, he is calculating the duration of the yugas through celestial or divine years which are much longer compared to human years. Thus, Sadhguru got his calculations. Looking at the current circumstances, I agree with the first diagram and believe that we are currently in Kaliyuga. Furthermore, Kalki Avtar is yet to come.
  14. Not sure. I'm guessing dasam granth, although those missionaries like Dhunda have said it, twisting the meanings and stuff.
  15. During Gurur ji's time the brahmins were greedy and only holy outwards, thus being hypocrites, can this also tie into this?
  16. "Jab lag khalsa rahe niara tab lag tej dioon mein sara. Jab eh gaye bipran ki reet mein na karoon in ki parteet." Does this shabad have a deeper meaning than the normal "don't indulge in brahminical rites" translation or not?
  17. The Raja had seen the thief near her house earlier but failed to connect the two scenarios. He also did not examine the nose carefully or else he would have realised that it was bitten off (due to the presence of teeth marks) rather than cut off. This relates to how the Raja in the original story failed to examine the evidence. In this tale the nose of the woman was bitten off, indicating her loosing pride/respect which was also experienced by the Rani (in original story), the woman tries to get her "respect" back by trying to appear holy and faultless through the lie she had told the Raja. The same way, the Rani had tried to appear faultless before Raja Chitar-rath trying to play the "victim card".
  18. The Raja from this tale would follow whatever the Rani said, just like the Raja from the original tale. The kingdom is given to the pauper and the Raja killed, this shows that the minister and Raja followed whatever the Rani said bringing about the destruction of the king, thus great sorrow befell on the kingdom. This can be related to the original tale, the minister is showing the Raja that if one follows the council of such women without question destruction befalls him and his kingdom. In the above tale, the minister follows the Rani's council without question on his part, he failed to use his intellect. However, it could be argued that he was in a tight spot and could not do much, reflecting the position of the minister from the original story. This is why the minister resorts to telling the Raja, from the original tale, many stories of deception, in this way he uses his intellect in the best interests of the king and the kingdom. The minister is explaining to the Raja that destruction is going to befall on his kingdom if he executes his son. As the Raja is old, the Rani, after his death might even marry a lowly man, as the kingdom would have no heir and she will be free to marry whomever she wishes to marry. The kingdom will be bereft of dharam and lose all order, leading to its destruction. Therefore, the minister gets the Raja to think ahead and make wise choices regarding the prince's execution.
  19. This charitar could be used to highlight how a woman's deception surpasses that of a man. The goldsmith was known as a swindler, yet the woman still invited him to her house, this shows that the actions of a woman are not easily predicted. Thus, planting doubt in the Raja's mind against his wife. The goldsmith was known as a swindler, his disagreeable character was out in the open, people knew of it. However, the character of the woman was not know, yet she deceived even a man claimed by all to be a swindler. This shows that women are better at hiding their immoral traits than men, thus outlining that there is more than a reasonable doubt that the queen, from the original story, may be guilty and the prince not. The woman from the tale had manipulated the man, crying fake tears while easily countering his deception with little cognitive effort on her part. In this way the minister shows the king that the queen is manipulating him with the use of emotions. Through the last two lines, "A woman laden with vile Charitars remains vile-proof. One who can deceive the rulers, cannot be swindled", the minister quite cleverly makes the Raja realise that a woman is quite capable in deceiving rulers, therefore causing the Raja to think logically and reasonably. He artfully tries to make the King take the right decision.
  20. This is the guided meditation I used to access my akashic records. It is a deep journey into the all-knowing subconscious mind which allows you to connect with the truth and gain knowledge and wisdom. You may experience visions of whatever you wish to see during the meditation. You can try this meditation if you wish, it enhances understanding at a spiritual level and gives you more insight into the spiritual world, beyond. Furthermore, one can clear deep misconception about one's current, future or previous lives by getting into contact with the subconscious mind which stores all the knowledge. The best way to gain knowledge is through one's own self and his/her's own life experiences, hence I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a deeper understanding of the akashic records, allowing oneself to freely clear all doubts in the process of exploring one of the spiritual phenomenons of the universe.
  21. You can access them through guided meditation. I accessed them to see my life purpose. They contain all knowledge of past, future and the present of the universe. Through the meditation you can choose which part you want to see and also clear any misconceptions you may have about your past, future or present.
  22. @dalsingh101 You can read the Valmiki Ramayan on this website: https://valmikiramayan.net/
  23. It is said in the KMG translation that Shakuni is the incarnation of Dwapur-yug. At the end of each yug, some fraction the population on earth is wiped out to get rid of adharmic people, for the commencement of the new yug. Shakuni was a very important instrument in starting the war, he also died in the war, this symbolises the near end of Dwapur yug and the starting of a new yug.
  24. In the book all the pandavs except for Yudhister laugh at Duryodhan, not just Draupadi which causes him to think up a plan to humiliate their wife and rob them of their kingdom. Even though Mahabharat portrays the win of good over evil, it is important to note that none of the characters are completely evil, nor completely good, they all have their faults and also good sides. Even though Duryodhan is seen as evil, he was the only one that stood up for Karan and did not discriminate against him. Duryodhan was really loyal to Karna, the book says he did not cry for anyone (including his brothers) except for Karan. Karan is a very interesting character. He was abandoned at birth, he was forced to be someone he was not, this caused him to always try to prove himself to others. He is a very loyal character, even though he was on the side of the Kauravs he observed dharam. He did what he thought was right, to some people it may seem that it was not right for him to fight on Duryodhan's side, however this just goes to show that dharam is not as simple to observe as it seems, what may seem right to do may not be right for you to do. Karan is rather admirable for having the so much loyalty as to stay with Duryodhan, even though he was told by many people such as Krishan and Kunti to leave him and fight on the Pandavs' side. He finally sacrifices his life for the loyalty of his friendship to Duryodhan. There is a lot to learn from him.
