सकारात्मक ऊर्जा के लिए हिन्दू धर्म की सबसे लोकप्रिय प्रार्थनाओं में से एक - हनुमान चालीसा
प्रशंसित पौराणिक कथाकार देवदत्त पटनायक ने समकालीन पाठक के लिए हनुमान चालीसा की गूढ़ता को अपने शब्दों में सरल बनाया है । उनका अनूठा दृष्टिकोण इस प्राचीन भजन को सुलभ बना देता है, क्योंकि यह उनके अपने ट्रेडमार्क चित्रों के साथ है।
जब भी हम इस संसार में अपने आप में नकारात्मकता का अनुभव करते हैं, या ईर्ष्या, क्रोध और हताशा को अपराध और हिंसा में परिवर्तित होते हुए अनुभव करते हैं, तब हम में से ज़्यदातर लोग हनुमान चालीसा ही सुनते या पढ़ते हैं I
चार सौ साल पूर्व तुलसीदास द्वारा अवधी भाषा में सरल शब्दों में लिखे गए इसके दोहे और चौपाइयाँ संगीतबद्ध रूप में हनुमानजी के बारे में पौराणिक ज्ञान, ऐसतिहासिक तथ्यों व रहस्य को उजागर करते हैं I हनुमानजी हिन्दुओं के प्रिय देवता हैं, जिनके माध्यम से वैदिक ज्ञान लोगों तक पहुँचता है I
इन छंदों को पढ़ते-सुनते हुए भयभीत व विचलित मन, ज्ञान व अंतर्दृष्टि से आलोकित हो जाता है तथा मानवता में हमारा विश्वास और भी बढ़ जाता है

  • ISBN-13: 978-9383095612
DESCRIPTION:
According to historically reliable literary accounts, medieval India witnessed a massive religiousrenaissance centered largely on the popular mysticism of the congregational chanting and singing of the names of God. This litany often took the form of the Maha-mantra: Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare. Thegreat sixteenth-century saint Sri Caitanya, Himself worshiped as an incarnation of Lord Krishna, first turned this public congregational chanting (sankirtana) into a mass movement in Bengal and then spread it to other parts of India. Not meant to remain confined even to India, Caitanya style sankirtana has in recent decades appeared on Western shores, where members of the Hare Krishna movement, modern followers of Sri Caitanya, publicly chant in the streets of major cities. Why the profound effect on human consciousness? How is this process of Mantra-meditation performed? What are its effects? Why its universal appeal, which appears to transcend all historical and cultural bounds? To gain a deep understanding of these matters, we will need to explore the theological and mystical literature of the Vaishnava tradition. Sri Namamrita or the nectar of the Holy Name dwells deep into the theology and practice of the Holy Name and offers inspiration to sincere seekers to take up the practice of mantra meditation and experience transcendental ecstacy!

Description:

“Love is the first attainment of invoking Ganesha. The second attainment is betterment of buddhi. Betterment of buddhi leads to the third attainment, greater understanding, and as the result of the first three, the mind becomes creative and intuitive. When the mind becomes creative and intuitive, it follows the path of dharma. This is the fourth attainment. Love and dharma together conquer karma. This is the fifth attainment. These are the five attainments of a sadhaka who is living in the material world. The sixth, seventh and eighth stages are the domain of sadhakas. These include the awakening of Kundalini, the raising of Kundalini and the merger of Shakti with Shiva.” The theme of the satsangs Swamiji gave in August 2012 at Ganga Darshan Vishwa Yoga Peeth was Ganapati aradhana. Swami took us on a journey to the land of Ganesha’s birth, Mt Kailash, and explained the significance of this well-loved deity’s birth, form and the associated symbols. Swamiji also outlined the role of Ganesha in human life and the methods to invoke his grace, as described in the vedic and tantric system.

    Description:

     Harikatha (lit. stories of the Lord) is the exposition of a religious theme, usually the life of a saint or a story from one of India’s scriptural texts. Its purpose is to spread devotion to the Divine. Harikatha is a composite art containing story-telling, poetry, music, drama, dance, and philosophy. Any story about God, or scriptural incidents, or about saints, who are the living exemplars for the existence of God, is an appropriate subject matter for Harikatha.
    The greatness of Harikatha lies in the fact that it provides one of the easiest; if not the easiest path to attaining lasting happiness and peace. Listening to stories about Divinity and divine individuals subtly makes the mind attached to, and permeated by Divinity. As one continues to listen to the stories of the Divine, one becomes pure in thought, word, and deed. As well, it cultivates one’s power of concentration and drives away doubt from a wavering mind. Not only does a katha please its listener, as other fine arts do, but it also comforts the mind and elevates the soul of the listener. Thus, as it entertains, it enlightens.

    Rituals Mantras and Science
    Rituals Mantras and Science

    From the Jacket:


    In this book the author discusses the place of science in rituals and mantras. Using structural analysis he show that rituals in general, whether religious, political, social or otherwise have common structural patterns. These patterns are shared by poetry, music, dance and gymnastics, but not by language. Consideration of animal rituals and pathological (compulsive) rituals leads him to propose a general theory which unifies all ritual-like activities. He also introduces the concept of ritual instinct which can be make the theory simpler and more elegant. He shows how knowledge can divided into science, non-science and pseudo-science to understand the true status of such strange phenomena as miracles, supernatural powers, siddhis, samadhi, rebirth and ESP.
