We know that bhasma is a very important part of Shaivite traditions, bhasma is sacred to shaivites, loved by shaivites, but what we don’t know is that, Mahadeva has said that bhasma has importance in relieving you of physical diseases ad relieving you of many mental problems. So bhasma snaana is prescribed. Bhasma is prepared from - Can you guess? It’s prepared from cowdung! There are processes given. 4-5 types of Bhasma are described.

What Are The Two Parts Of All Mantras And Their Significance ?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZ3GePymmFQ Now we come to the fundamentals. What is a Mantra? Now, aspects of Hinduism as we understand it today versus what is mentioned in our agamas, what Mahadeva has to say. How far we are from the originally revealed to where we are today. Now according to Mahadeva, not a single activity is performed without a mantra. This not what I’m saying- this is what he says. ‘Mantra vina kriya naasti’. So, he has given mantra for every action.

Śankara Jayantī was celebrated last week, and now is a good time to ruminate upon the ideas of this philosopher. Śankara is also a poet of the firs

Source: - San Diego Union Tribune. By Jeanette Steele Aug. 6, 2017 2:20 PM In the middle of a prescription painkiller overdose crisis in the United States, a San Diego VA study finds that veterans with chronic pain would be well-served to put down the pills and pick up a yoga mat. After six months of twice-a-week yoga sessions, San Diego veterans reported a significant drop in back pain — one of the signature complaints of a demographic that suffers higher rates of chronic pain than the general population. Also, the number of patients in the study on opiate-based pain pills dropped from 20 percent to 8 percent. It’s a potentially important finding, as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs weans its members off of long-term addictive painkillers such as hyd
