Murtis' embellishment for winter 2015


I have renovated my Murtis's embellishment for this winter. The idea was borne once I saw the shawl in white-and-dark-red. 

Then out of the blue the mini-Murti of Shree Jagannatha had been obtained by me (just see how beautiful this mini-Murti looks in contrast with my usual Murtis). 

This year I also obtained white Conch (Shree Krishna has been asking for the Conch very much) as well as Shree Tulasi KanthiMala (not on the photo unfortunately, but now Shree Tulasi KanthiMala is lying in the Embrace of Bhagavan Shree Vishnu near the White Conch). 

Actually Shree Tulasi KanthiMala had been obtained for me personally, but Krishna has "taken away" from me 2 Shree Tulasi KanthiMalas this year (Krishna likes to sleep, coiling and wrapping in Shree Tulasi beads).  

This year I have also purchased very interesting pearl Shree Tulasi KanthiMala (Shree Tulasi, pearl and silver), wearing It all the time now! 

Мои Муртёныши!


Да, девчонки, полностью новое оформление моих Муртёнышей на эту зиму. 

Концепт был рожден, когда я увидела бордово-белую шаль в магазине. 

Мини-Мурти Шри Джаганнатха идеально вписались в дизайн (все это совпало с тем, что я в этом году изучила ту часть "Шри Брахма-Пураны" и "Шри Сканда-Пураны", которая рассказывает именно о Шри Джаганнатхе). 

Я также купила несколько Шри Туласи-КантхиМал в ноябре. 

Моя персональная гордость - Шри Туласи-КантхиМала в серебре и жемчуге, уникальное сочетание, очень, очень женственное и девчачье, именно в Настроении Шримати Радхики-Деви (в тех Шри Кришна-Тантрах, которым мы следуем, Шримати Радхарани-Деви и Золотого Цвета, и Лунного - как "цветок Чампака"). 

Кришна тут же отнял у меня сразу 2 Шри Туласи-КантхиМалы. В одну Шри Туласи КантхиМалу я укутала Его Деревянное Мурти.

Другая Шри Туласи-КантхиМала тоже мгновенно стала моей Любимицей - дизайн с медными цветочками на каждой бусине, но Кришна жутко просил Её для Своего Айшварья-Мурти (лежащий Бхагаван Шри Нараяна, но я доложила Её позже и на фото Её нет, к сожалению). 

Ракушка для купания (Кришну просто так не помоешь, Он обожает мыться только из Ракушки) изначально была куплена просто для общего дизайна, но теперь я мою из неё МахаЛакшмёныша и Кришну.

"Modification of flesh and fat": Brilliant Tika by Swami Chinmayananda to the Verse 03 of "Shree Bhaja-Govindam"


I liked this Tika very much and especially phrase "hunger for flesh", which epitomizez sick and perverted cravings of jiva under the hammer

Q. 1. What knowledge is the highest of all? 

Ans. There is no true knowledge except

Cult of the Rakshasas

To live in the body, for the body, is the Cult of the Rakshasas - the Virochana Cult. 

Virochana, the King of the Devils, even after reaching the feet of the Lord of Knowledge could understand from his instructions only this much: "The body alone is the Self, Atman, the Eternal. To worship it is the greatest of all religions". ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

English annotation by Vishnudut1926: Very good English translation and magnificent Tikas by Swami Chinmayananda. 

The unique feature of the Book is that each Verse of "ChaturDashaManjarika Stotra" is associated with the Disciple of Shankara Maha Acharya!

For example, Verse 14 is ascribed to Padmapada Acharya. 

One garland of beauty


If you are a seeker of the Fuller Life, if you are thirsty to hear the Melody in the Harmonious Existence, if you are hungry to taste and enjoy the Essence of Life, seek to realise the One Reality, which holds together the whole universe into one garland of beauty.  

The universe is a cosmos and not a chaos. 

There exists a mutual affinity, a scientific law, a rhythm of mutual relationship in which the entire living world is held together, in one web of love. To assume difference in the world, is to belie this great Oneness in life. 

In a loveless life, of hate and meanness, of littleness of heart and limited view-point, there is nothing but suffocation, sorrow and agitation. 

Expand. 

Come in contact with the melody of the great Flute Player, who enchants us all to dance our life around Him.

SHE Herself removes the veil.............


The excerpt from V.V. Kaskhedikar article, very inspiring for Shakti-Sadhana. By the way, the same idea is in Shaiva-Siddhanta - only constant Shiva-Bhakti-Sadhana can destroy 3 malas (anava, karma, mala). 

"The Divine Mother is The Absolute Reality Who appears as all. 

She has deluded the world. 
But when propitiated SHE Herself removes the veil. Hence says Rishi, surrender to Her for She is your real nature. 
By ignorance you are attached to your kith and kin. 

Divine Mother is your own Real nature. She is all pervading Reality. 

Your ignorance is also Her Divine play. She is the cause of bondage and also of liberation. 

In other words, She Herself is manifesting as the contradictions of life. 

Hence Realise Her".

Капуста беднокочанная

Synopsis in English: laughing at cabbage - which is the food of the poor in Russia. I truly hate the poor and Shreemati Durga-Devi hates the poor too (see all "Shreemad Devi Bhagavatam" for details). 

Еще со среды хотела квашеной капусты. Зашла в "Доброном" и взяла пластиковую корзину за....28 рублей (там реально корзина, можно накормить миллиард бабочек-капустниц). 

Капуста - это своеобразное проклятие России, еда вечно бедных и нищих уродов. Нечего жрать? Солянка из капусты. Нет денег на фрукты? Квашеная капуста. Нужно горячее блюдо? Щи. День рождения? Пирожки с капустой.

Divya-Prasada and The Symbology of Alwars


Excerpt from "Sathakopa's Conception of Bhakti" 
by Dr K.C. Aravinda RajaGopal

The AcharyaHridayakara explains certain points regarding the psychology of Bhakti in Sathakopa. 

Firstly, the Alwar lays great emphasis on the point that mind abandons the individual and clings to God from the first moment of the dawn of Divine Grace. 

This is the Divine sankalpa whose dawn is heralded by the stirrings of the heart towards God-devotion. 

Secondly, Bhakti has 3 prajna-avasthas. Prajna means

Sundara Purusha


I liked very much the following excerpt from "Sathakopa's Conception of Bhakti" by Dr K.C. Aravinda RajaGopal.

Держись за свою Сиддханту и почему нельзя критиковать другие Вайшнава-Сампрадаи (а также Шакти и Шайва-Сампрадаи)


Synopsis in English: My new article in Russian dwelling on non-criticism of other Bhakti-Siddhantas and strictly adhering to your own Tantra and Bhakti-Siddhanta (based on "Shree Lakshmi-Tantra" and the 1st Chapter of "Shree Parashurama-Kalpa-Sutra", famous सर्वदर्शनानिन्दा and अगणनं कस्यापि  Sutras). 

Небольшая, но серьезная статья от меня по поводу очень важной части Тантрической Садханы, а именно скрытности и полного игнорирования споров (на примере "Шри Лакшми-Тантры" и "Шри ПарашуРама-Калпа-Сутры"). 

Обозначу идею вкратце. Как Тантрики (и особенно как Шакти-Тантрики):

"Infinite crores of macrocosms shine forth on the palm of Bhagavan Shree MahaVishnu Hand, like a large number of amalaka-fruits on the palm of a magician, engrossed in demonstrating his tricks. 

Infinite crores of macrocosms, along with their veils, swirl round and round, like a continuous chain of pots attached to a water-wheel (used for baling water), in each interspace between the hair-follicles of Bhagavan Shree MahaVishnu".

For me the Tikas of OM VishnuPad Vedanta Deshika Maha Acharya have resolved long-standing contradiction about "jiva in deep slumber returning to Brahman" (as you know this is one the statements of "Shree Vedanta-Sutra"). 

I did not understand this Siddhanta for quite a long time, but OM VishnuPad Vedanta Deshika Maha Acharya cites "Shree Chandogya-Upanishad", 8.3.2 and the English translation is so superb, that now I have totally imbibed this Siddhanta, cite from this Grantha:

If you ever read "Shree Saubhagya-Lakshmi-Tantram" (I have a copy in Hindi) you should know that in one of the Chapters the favourite dwelling places of Shreemati Lakshmi-Devi are listed (and, by the way, afterwards - the favourite habitations of Alakshmi enumerated too).

English annotation by Vishnudut1926: I fell in love with this Agama, as Tantra it is very simple, but very impressive! The Bhakti and Sadhana Khandas are truly fascinating!

The parlance of "Shree Narada-PanchaRatra" is rather simple and the appeal is definitely to common Bhakti folk (apart from more intellectual and highbrow Orthodox "Shree PanchaRatra", for example, "Shree Lakshmi-Tantra").

Sometimes "Shree Narada-PanchaRatra" is confused with "Shree Narada-Purana", because from one point "Shree Narada-Purana" gets very Tantric twist and becomes fully fledged Vaishnava-Shakti-Tantra.

But please don't confuse. Let's compare in brief, please see the following graph (backup on box, dropbox, minus, skydrive):

Shree Hamsa-Vidya, Aishwarya of Bhagavan Shree Krishna, balabuddhi


Back to selected Verses of "Shree Bhagavata-Purana", Song 11, now Chapter 04. 

Verse 11.4.2 - Numerous Gunas of Bhagavan Shree Krishna

Very classic Pramana about the impossibility to count Numerous Gunas of Bhagavan Shree Krishna! This Pramana is repeated in all The Puranas. 

The "balabuddhi" phrase ("infantile mind") is

मुकुट

मुकुट (mukuTa) - very Beautiful Sanskrit word, meaning not only crown, but "diadem and tiara"

I loved the following article about Shree Sapta-Matrikas - https://meerahrt3m.wikispaces.com/The+Sapta+Matrikas

The Images of Shreemati Vaishnavi-Devi (Shreemati Lakshmi-Devi) and Shreemati MahEshwari-Devi are in rather graphic style, but very adorable. 
And Shreemati MahEshwari-Devi in a very Shani-influenced style: Violet Dress (The Colour of Shani and Shani connected with Bhagavan Shree Shiva, of course), Skulls and Damaru. Very Beautiful!
2) Vaishnavi: represents the power of the Preserver God Vishnu, She is described as sitting on the Garuda. She is also depicted as having Four or Six Arms. She holds a Conch, a Discus (Chakra), a Mace, and Lotus and Bow and Sword, or Two Arms are in Varada Mudra. She is known for Her Crown which is cylindrical and known as Kirita Mukuta.

3) Maheshvari: represents The Power of God of destruction Shiva. She is seen sitting on the bull Nandhi. She has Four or Six Arms. She has a white complexion, She has Three Eyes and holds a Trident, a Damaru, a Garland of beads, a Drinking Vessel, and Axe, and Antelope, or a Skull Bow, or a Serpent. Rather than a crown She wears a Silver Crescent Moon on a headdress of piled matted hair this is known as Jata Mukuta.

PROTECTING OM VishnuPad Bhaktivinoda Maha Acharya (from tamasika bloggers and offenders)


I try to keep my blog from citing offending sites / blogs. The only exception which I have made up to now is the post about Russian mad pseudo-worshipper, who offended ISKCON (2 posts in Russian in 2014 -  001 and 002).

смотрите рубрикатор - 

Ох, девчонки, я не поклонница длинных статей (блог обычно предполагает короткие посты, так как не книга, хахаха), но стала писать и получилось много! Тем не менее, я очень рекомендую ознакомиться с данной статьей, так как она о Самом Главном для нас - Сапфировом Муже, Любви и Супружестве!

Джива всё-таки Служанка или Супруга Кришны?


Cначала напишу причину по которой пишу эту статью. Шри Рамануджа-Сампрадая и Шри Гаудия-Сампрадая очень масштабно завязаны именно на Дасья-Расу, но,

Rather marvellous Excerpt from "Shree Narada-PanchaRatra". Shree Ganesha-Ji (The Devata of Vidya, as we know) tells that Krishna Worship does not depend too much upon literacy. 

The passage itself reminds very much the
