Why not to place our head to the North while sleeping?

Posted on

shubhpuja.comWe are usually recommended not to sleep with head in north direction due to many scientific, medical and even religious reasons; yet most of us don’t notice this fact while dozing off to sleep. Not to scare you, but one wrong habit can also lead to hemorrhages in their brain. Let’s discuss the reasons of why not to prefer north direction.

  • Similar to the earth magnetic field, our body also has magnetic fields i.e. our head is north and feet are the south. As similar poles repel each other, so the magnetic pull causes pressure on our brain.
  • The horizontal body position can drop the pulse rate and cause damage in the head.
  • The increased circulation of blood flow due to this position causes agitation, frustration and other major troubles with age.
  • To avoid sleeplessness, headache, nausea, disturbed blood circulation and digestion problems.
  • South is also considered as a direction of negativity and also associated with God of death, thus it tends to bring misfortune or bad luck.

 

So sleeping in East or North-east direction is considered the best while facing on right side. The digestion and metabolic activity is maintained while sleeping. If you get up in the morning rolling to left side, it applies pressure on the cardiac system as the body is already in state of relaxation.

Posted on

shubhpuja.com The Line of heart is unique in the study of hand as it plays an important role in the love, drama and emotions. The line of heart runs across the upper portion of the hand at the base of the Mounts of Jupiter, Saturn, and Sun, and Mercury.

  • The line of heart should be deep, clear and well coloured and it may rise from three important positions- Middle of the Mount of Jupiter, between first and second fingers, and from the centre of Mount of Saturn.
  • If it rises from centre of Jupiter, it depicts the highest type of love. Men with such formations are firm, strong, and reliable in their affections, whereas females are more noble, great and famous.
  • Line rising from first and second fingers gives a calm but deeper nature in matters of love. They are quitter and subdued in their passions.
  • When the line rises from Saturn, the subject will have more passion in his attachments, and will never be so expressive in family life.
  • When the line rises from Mount of Jupiter, it denotes excess of foregoing qualities like they get carried away by their pride and can see no faults in the people they worship.
  • When the line of heart is much fretted by a crowd of little lines, it tells of inconsistency, flirtations, a series of amourettes, but no lasting affection.
  • When the line of heart is bright red, it denotes great violence of passion.
  • When pale and broad, the subject is blasé and indifferent.
  • When low down on the hand, and close to the line of head, the heart will always interfere with the affairs of the head.
  • When line of heart commences with a small fork on the Mount of Jupiter, it is an unfailing sign of a true, honest nature and enthusiasm in love.
  • The line lying so low that it droops down towards the line of head is a sure sign of unhappiness in affection during the early portion of life.
  • A subject with no heart line, or with very little, has not power of feeling very deep affection.

Posted on Updated on

shubhpuja.comShiv’ means the destroyer of bad karmas and ‘linga’ means to mark or sign which symbolize the Supreme God. So literally ‘Shivling’ is referred as the sacred symbol of Lord Shiva. In real terms, Shiv-Linga is a symbol or sign of duality (dual character) of the pious Shiva and his cosmic universal energy. It is a process defining the creation of mortals within the omnipresent and omnipotent Universe.

Shivling is known for its purity, thus it consists of immense energy and radiates it when adored. The worshipping of shivling by washing it with water and chanting the mantras is commonly called as Rudrabhishiek or Shivling Abhishek Puja. This is especially done from pure milk, curd, ghee, sugar, mustard oil etc; significantly during the Hindu month of Shravan.

Why to perform Rudrabhishiek Puja?

The Shivling releases frequencies of Knowledge (dhyan), devotion (bhakti) and detachment (vairagya) which is experienced during puja. It is said that this energy has been gathered through ‘sagar manthan’ in which Lord Shiva consumed the dangerous poison Halahal to save the humanity from destruction.

Performing Rudrabhishek Puja and chanting Maha Mrityuanjay mantras dispels ignorance by spreading the light of knowledge, and blesses the beings with wisdom and happiness.

How to perform Rudrabhishiek Puja?

Devotees worship Lord Shiva and his ‘Shivling with devotion and faith to seek the grace and happiness. Let’s make the Shivling Abhishek easy for you by just following few steps.

‘Choti’ or ‘Shikha’: Significance

Posted on

shubhpuja.comWe have commonly observed a choti or shikha i.e. the tuft of hair, prominent among the Sanatan Dharma. The Shastras declare that any religious rite such as a yagna or homa is fruitless without a shikha (Katyayan Smruti). When the Gurukul system of education prevailed, the pupil was eligible to study only after having a shikha.

All the religious act should be performed after tying the tuft but only the funeral and death anniversaries are performed with tuft untied or with dishevelled hair. It is very inauspicious to remain with dishevelled hair. It is done only diin times of great sorrow or calamity. Like Draupadi took an oath in the assembly of the Kurus when she was molested by Dussasana that she would remain with dishevelled hair until the enemies were properly revenged. Also, Kaikeyi remained with dishevelled hair in her apartment with the object of getting two boons from Dasaratha which were detrimental to the interests of Rama, the favourite of Dasaratha.

Significance of ‘choti’ or ‘shikha’:

  • There is a common belief that a choti allows the almighty to pull us easily from this ‘material world’ as it is the nexus of all nerves.
  • The Brahmarandhra is the seventh chakra (also known as the Sahasrara chakra), the highest one in the human body which represents a thousand- petaled lotus.
  • It is considered the seat of wisdom and the knotted shikha protects this spot.
  • When the fully enlightened being attain jeevan mukti or salvation, the soul is said to depart the human body from this chakra.
  • The knotted shikha helps boost this center and conserve its subtle energy known as ojas.
  • Sun i.e. the primary source of clean energy, when falls on the rest of the head is soaked by the brain and helps in reviving the body and soul energy.
