https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBySaPAfiJg&t=39s Understanding Bhagwan Shankaracharya is to understand the avatar parampara of Sanatana Dharma. Understanding Shankaracharya is to understand, ‘unity in diversity’. Understanding Shankaracharya is to understand, national integration, to understand social reform. Understanding Shankaracharya is to understand the revival of Sanatana Dharma. To Shankarachya parampara goes the credit of protecting Sanatana Dharma from the continuous, relentless, persistent assault on its excellent tenets for the past 2500 years till date. If there were no Shankaracharya parampara, if Shankaracharya had not been born at all, you can imagine the catastrophe it would have spelled for Sanatana Dharma. There have been a total of 17 invasions on us. India

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2ko_RDhLFc Bhagwan Shankaracharya knew that after his demise, India will have to face a physical war, ideological war, cultural war. He knew this very well. That is why in order to protect the 4 Vedas he set up 4 Amnaya Mutts in the 4 corners of this country. Amnaya means the Vedas and Amnaya Peetha means Vedic Seat. So, he established 4 Mutts in the 4 directions of India in order to protect the 4 Vedas and the 4 divine abodes of India. He established the Sri Uttaramnaaya Jyotirmath in the north.

Hinduism: Mythology Vs Reality

Hinduism: Mythology Vs Reality

Hinduism, Videos
Source: - Dharma Speaks YouTube Channel. The various stories in Sanathana Dharma are full of amazing fantastic tales of Gods, Goddesses and demons. They form an integral part of the spiritual beliefs of Hindu culture. But how can a rational mind hold them to be true? Are Hindus actually saying these things happened or are they just metaphorical? Are they fact or fiction? The video explains there are three ways to understand the different stories: Symbolic, Historical or as a Reality. For many devotees they use these narrations as a reality which dictates their perception of how they view life. This is a profound devotional science which results in one being transported into deeper states of Divine love. A Love which reveals the ultimate Truth. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e03w6qABqZw...

Hinduism: Understanding Karma and Reincarnation

Hinduism: Understanding Karma and Reincarnation

Hinduism, Videos, What is Hinduism
Source: - Dharma Speaks YouTube Channel. Reincarnation can be a difficult concept to accept. But the idea makes sense when we understand that we are not what we take ourselves to be. The Masters and scriptures declare that beyond our physical and mental existence we are the Atman. Life is a cosmic journey where the Atman samples different aspects of life through different incarnations. Karma is the force of the universe that makes this happen. It is not a moral judge, but a law which allows us to create our future. Eventually after many lives we seek to break the ties of Karma and repeated birth and death, through Yoga. Yoga is the method of centering our consciousness on the Atman. When we do this we rise above our Samskaras (impressions) and reach a state beyond Karma and Rebirth - W...
