Religious Knowledge Doesn’t Need To Be Transmitted Textually

Religious Knowledge Doesn’t Need To Be Transmitted Textually

Featured, Hinduism, Srijan Snippets, Videos
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tFbVwUqqlU&t=5s we are a civilization with enormous quest for knowledge. There is no religion like a Hindu religion. It is an entire set of stream of knowledge traditions. They are seeking the knowledge of inner and outer world. This is what we were and enormous cultural interchange between these areas. So fundamentally we are knowledge traditions, they are transmitted in many different ways, because knowledge doesn’t have to be transmitted textually. You teach your son how to ride bicycle. Do you give him book? There are different mechanisms, text can also be a mechanism, but text is not the only mechanism. And it is not certainly the dominant mechanism. Even today humans do not fundamentally learn through texts. Through observation, repetition, emulat

What are the Contents of Agamas?

Featured, Hinduism, Tantra, Videos
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-EYUBoA7q4 Now every Agama has 4 types of content. One is the Kriya Pada. Kriya Pada are all the rituals, all the practices, everything, like Prana Pratishtha, like offering water, offering Achmaneeyam, doing the mudras, all of those things, everything which can be contained broadly in the category of ritual or spiritual process, that is the Kriya Pada. So Kriya Pada, this classification is actually mentioned in the Kamika Agama itself and at the end of every chapter it says which Pada it belongs to. Now, Pada, by the way, is not ‘step’. It is ‘part’. So, all four, it’s not like you go step by step, not at all. These are 4 parts and all 4 have to be practiced. Carya is the lifestyle aspects. So for example, when should you take bath, why should you take bat

Caste system is from Europe. Derived from Portuguese word ‘casta'. Varna on the other hand belongs to Sanatana Dharma. Varna is decided by Karma and not by Janma.

The Kamika Agama which is considered to be one of the most important Agamas describes how they were revealed. It describes Mahadeva as having five faces – Sadyojata, Vamadeva, Aghora, Tatpurusha and Ishana. Each of these faces of Mahadeva further had 5 five faces.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KObhh12mrY0 People who criticize Ramanand, claim that Kabir was not his disciple, are unable to come up with any coherent arguments to support their arguments. They keep talking in a confused manner. However, Ramananad ji’s role in bringing back Hindus who had been forcibly converted to other religions is very big. This is a very big thing he did, which nobody else had done before him. Only a warrior saint could achieve such a thing. To put it in plain terms, (we will move the slide forward), the norm in those days was that Hindus had been forced to accept Islam under the threat of the sword, threatened with such a scenario, the Hindu will convert to Islam, he has no option but to do so. People were being converted in lakhs. However, the fanatic, wi
