The concept of fortune

Any person who is working in this world has to face a fork when he becomes tired of working extremely hard in order to live his earning. The fork or the situation of dilemma arises when one has to choose amongst fortune and work. There are many instances in one’s life when one faces bad time despite of his best efforts. Many-a-times, we are midst of such situations when we become puzzled. All of the efforts which are done in the right direction turn useless and the person undergoes severe pain and suffers a lot.

At such times, the difference between fortune and work comes into existence and play. Fortune is the pot which is made from three types of mud namely:

  1. Purvakrit Karma : The deeds of past life.
  2. Kriyaman Karma: The deeds which the person is doing.
  3. Praarabdh Karma: The deeds which are done in this life.

Fortune is made up with the combination of all these things and hence, the mud is correctly shaped into the direct pot.

Fortune and Misfotune

Since a person cannot remain without doing any sort of work, one has to suffer the reactions of his deeds, whether they are good or bad. Any karma or deed which is done by the person has it’s own reactions based upon the propagation of the deed which is done.

These deeds when they accumulate in the reaction list of the person remain in five stages.

  1. In seed form
  2. Seed about to germinate
  3. Seed which is germinated
  4. Seed about to fructify
  5. Seed which is fructified

So, due to combinations of all these reactions, the person is really confused when the sinful reaction of which deed is about to come since all of this is decided by agents of personality of godhead.

Reasons for misfortune

As per the discrimination of misfortune, there could be various reasons for misfortune of the person.

  1. Past sinful reactions due to the past misdeeds
  2. Due to malefic effects of Ketu planet
  3. Due to kali nazar of any envious person

One of the most important reasons in the field is the malefic position of Ketu planet which is one of the minor planets in the kundali but has got significant effects on the life of the person.

rang panchami

Rang Panchmi falls on the fifth day of the month of Phalgun and is considered to be an auspicious day among Hindu families. The entire city comes together with enthusiasm and zest to make each Holi memorable. This festival is the extension of the vibrant Holi which keeps the spirit of people alive. Places like Mathura, Vrindavan, Jaipur, and few areas of Madhya Pradesh Maharashtra celebrate Rang Panchami in unique ways and with great enthusiasm.

Rang Panchami is essentially a rural festival. Special significance is given to the festival by the farming and fishing community. In Maharashtra the fisher folks celebrate it in on a large scale and revel in the festivities by singing, dancing and merry-making.

The main attraction of this festival in Indore is faag yatras carried out from the Bada Ganpati area of the city, all the way to Rajwada. People sing and dance, and play with gulal and join the procession. This year four ‘Gairs’ and three ‘Faag yatras’ will be taken out in grand manner amidst shower of gulal and other ‘dry’ colors. Dholaks, DJs and other musical instruments will add colour to the festivity. All traditions and rituals would be observed during the day.

In Rajasthan, Rangpanchami preparations are mainly seen in the temples of Jaisalmer. Folk dances are enjoyed by the local people. The festival is enjoyed with different hues of enthusiasm portrayed through their traditions, customs, food, attire and fun filled activities.

This year Rang panchami is on 28th march, 2016 as per the English calendar and people are all set to spread the message of love, harmony and brotherhood through this festival.

The Sacred Tulsi!

The sacred plant of Tulsi or Ocimum Basilicum is considered as a must have plant in almost all the Indian homes. From holding medicinal to divine values, tulsi is known for its magical traits. Even our holy scriptures gives a special mention to this plant. Significance of Tulsi is as follows:

  • It is firmly believed that Vishnu propitiation is incomplete without offering him the sacred Tulsi leaves. During the ritual of ‘Tulsi vivaah’ in kartik month, Tulsi is married to Lord Vishnu.
  • The Vedic scriptures say, “Krishna gives Himself to a devotee who offers Him merely a Tulsi leaf and a palm full of water.”
  • Tulsi is known for the self-purification value and therefore widely used in holy puja ceremonies. It is also reused in puja without creating any impurity.
  • The Tulsi plant is extremely sensitive and aware, and quickly able to register the vibrations around her. Therefore Tulsi fades away in negative or unhygienic surroundings.
  • Tulsi is known as the Mother of Ayurveda and is widely used in fever, insomnia, mental tension, skin problems, and the treatment of cancer and diabetes.
  • The antibiotic and anti-allergic properties of Tulsi help to cure coughs and colds, sore throats, whooping cough in children etc.
  • Tulsi plant releases oxygen all the time i.e. both day and night, which makes it unique from the other plants.
  • The dried wood, stem and branches of Tulsi are used to make japa malas, which are considered calm and serene in nature.
  • Tulsi is widely worshipped for happiness and prosperity. It is also adored by unmarried girls in virtue of good husbands.
  • Keeping Tulsi plant at home prevents insects and mosquitoes from entering the house. It is said that snakes do not dare to go near a Tulsi plant.

 

 

Aroma of Positivity: Why do we burn incense sticks in puja?

Posted on

shubhpuja.comThe divine presence is eternal, omnipresent and omnipotent; it’s just our lack of realization that we are not able to remember him each moment. Though we don’t adore him every moment yet we are particular about our traditional values and beliefs. The entire process of worshipping God is fixed by us in a particular manner but do we ever think rationally, why do we do perform a particular ritual?

Burning incense stick is an important part of the puja ceremony as per Hindu rituals and here we’ll highlight the cause behind this ritual.

  • The incense sticks acts as an air freshener and rejuvenates the soul of the devotee, who is worshipping.
  • The ambience becomes pious and tranquil due to elimination of evil or ill energies from the environment.
  • The attractive fragrance of the incense stick captivates the mind and soul of the worshipper and helps them to focus on His holy presence.
  • It also acts as a disinfectant to remove insects and flies away from the holy place of worship.
  • It is also said that these sweet smoky fragrance transmits our messages to the Almighty.
  • The incense sticks inspires us to leave behind our aspirations and surrender ourselves for the benefit of mankind, like it burns itself for us.

Thus the tradition of burning camphor or incense stick is not mandatory, yet if you do it then it’s a good practice and these reasons will make you utilise it in a better way.
