Painting by Pieter Weltevrede. 
Shiva brings the transformation in the universe in the form of destruction, leading to a new creation. Shiva is also known as Adi Yogi or the first Yogi. Thus, through the practice of Yoga and self-control, Shiva is also the destroyer of illusion or Maya. Apart from a fierce deity and a Yogi, Shiva is also a householder, his consort being Goddess Parvati, who is an aspect of the primordial feminine - Adi Shakti.

#nagpanchami on #independenceday of #INDIA 
The nagas were a superior race compared to the humans that have coexisted on earth, but were finally nearly vanquished by the clever human mind and forced to leave the planet. The ones we see today are the weak and old ones.

The prominent among them were #sheesh #vasuki #karkotak #kalia #mansa #sulochana etc.

Takshak nag’s family was burnt to death by #Arjun to create his capital city. He tried to kill Arjun during the Mahabharata war by sitting on top of karan’s arrow but failed. He finally got his revenge on Arjun’s grandson #parikshit - that’s when Kali Yuga started. #janmejaya, son of parikshit, conducted a #sarpyagya which was going to wipe the entire race of nagas to avenge his fathers death, but #astik #naga saved the race from extinction. This is the day that nagpanchmi is celebrated.

#Gatari #Amavasya falls on the Ashada Amavasya evening. It is celebrated on the #New #Moon day in the ashada month of the $Marathi calendar.
Gatari means a celebration, it is the last day to have non-veg food! which means after the Gatari Amavasya #day, #Hindu #devotees abstain from #non-vegetarian food and alcohol for the #Sharavan month. Due to this tons of Non-veg and #alcohol gets consumed all over the state in a single day.

In #North India it is called ' Hariyali Amavasya'. Hariyali Amavasya is also referred as the ‘Festival of Greenery’. #Lord #Shiva and Lord #Krishna are worshipped these days.

#Hariyali Amavasya corresponds with #Ashada Amavasya which is celebrated in #Andhra Pradesh, #Goa, #Maharashtra, #Karnataka, #Gujarat and #Tamil Nadu where #Amavasyant #Lunar Calendar is followed. Hariyali Amavasya is also known as #Haryali Amavas and Hariyali Amas in #Gujarat. Hariyali Amavasya is called '#Chitalagi Amavasya’ in #Orissa and ‘#Chukkala Amavasya’ in #Andhra Pradesh.

#gayatriyantra is the same as the #suryayantra- as she is the mother of the solar deity - the freehand design around the yantra is known as the #mandala 
The famous #gayatrimantra is composed of 24 sound syllables. Each sound syllable is the energy of one of the 24 gods, and #gayatri is a combination of the energy of 24 gods. Each energy is of a different nature and serves a different purpose. Doing Japa of the desired mantra daily can help in obtaining the desired energy. Repetition of the mantra 1,25,000 times brings Siddhis or super human powers.

#shodashi or #tripurasundari #yantra - the bhupur is dark green color (associated with #saturn or #seventhchakra). The three rings represents the three worlds or aspects of #conciousness - will, action and knowledge. The 24 petals are representative of 24 #elements. There are two sets of three intersecting upward and downward pointing isosceles triangles forming a six pointed star. On the base of the upward pointing innermost triangle is a Lingam - symbol of #kameshwar #shiva.

The most beautiful in the three worlds (Tripura Sundari) and the one who is sixteen years old (shodashi) different names of the divine mother who is the fountainhead of beauty. The source of inspiration. One of the three main #mahavidyas from the ten (kali and Tara are the other two). She is also referred to as #sri vidya associated with #sriyantra.

My muse presented herself to me today like never before. I cannot wait to create her with all the patience and perfection it takes. These are my mentors, they coax me out of stagnation, surround me with #venomous sensation, allow me to rise. A thousand lives at war with fear, fear which is also a very ancient ally. The roar that bellows out of their soul, true magnificent, beautiful rage escaping, a sound that turns a mass of heads, suspending time. Ive studied up, been entirley gay for them, as I am for every woman that has crossed my path in my life that are strong, firm, and that will not conform to society's image of the stay at home wife. Dont call me sugar, babe, sweetie, or succumb to the consequences. Dont get me wrong I am on both sides of the spectrum, female embracing my masculinity. I am feminine.The rise of the Androgynous though, FINALLY, community is everything. Balance. I am made of metal. Allow me to sing with ferocity, for it will not be trapped inside. As I have said, I've been blessed with such a community of goddesses, my beloved sisters....you know who you are. Thank you divine muses. And if such a woman is inside you, let her out for fuck sake!!!!! Embrace your wildness. #panther #spiritanimal #nocturnalcreatures #spiderenergy #vegan #riseoffemalepower #femalemetalhead #femalestrength #femaleroar #androgynous #balance #spiritstrength #roar #metal @dehydratedband @jinjer_official @alissawhitegluz @archenemyofficial @oncehuman #kali #pieterweltevrede #kaliart

#matangi #yantramandala is the geometrical representation of goddess Matangi, one of the #dasmahavidyas or ten wisdom goddesses in the tantric tradition. 
The Bhupur is dark olive green. The eight petaled pink color lotus symbolizes the 8 fold #prakriti or mother nature ie the five elements and three internal organs (#mind, #intellect and #ego). A six pointed star of yellow ochre with a touch of emerald green is set in neutral white background. 
Born as the daughter of Rishi #matang, who rebelled against the rigid caste system and and wanted to achieve god hood through his #karmas, she came to be known as matangi. (In #sanskrit mati is intellect). After praying to goddess #Saraswati she promised to become his daughter.

Her seat in the human body is the throat or the fifth chakra. She is the advisor to tripurasundari - supreme of the ten wisdom goddesses. She should be invoked to achieve command over speech, #creativity, and fine arts.

The divine incarnation of lord #muruga (name in south india) or #kartikeya (north india) took place in today’s full moon day in the Tamil month of vaigasi (mid May- mid June) in the nakshatra of #vishaka.

Kartikeya incarnated to destroy the demons - surapadma, tarakasura and singamugha. The gods approached lord #Shiva for help, who drew six sparks of fire from his #thirdeye (hence he is also called #Skanda). The unbearable to carry - fiery sparks were taken to the Ganges by Agni (god of fire) and vayu (god of wind) and dropped there. The sparks transformed into six babies born on six lotuses. They were nurtured by six #nakshatras called six #krittikas, who are stars of the #constellation #pleiades (hence the name Kartikeya). Then goddess Parvati embraced the six babies and made them into one with six heads and 12 hands. 
Lord muruga is worshipped for all problems relating to planet #mars.

Birth of ganga series- post 18

Today on the auspicious day of #gangadusshera, the 10 th day of the waxing moon, is the day river goddess ganga descended onto earth.

The last post of this series. Ganga followed bhagirath as he led her by blowing the conch shell. The earth and the animals all came alive with the touch of Ganga.

Yet another hurdle lay in the way. The curious Ganga heard mantras being chanted from the ashram of #Janurishi and entered it thereby destroying the fire sacrifice. The enraged Rishi swallowed the entire river. Bhagirath pleaded the RISHI to yet again forgive her. #Janu released ganga by making a cut in his left thigh. Ganga was further purified. Hence she is also known as #jhanvi 
As bhagirath led her towards Kapil ashram at the Bay of Bengal, thousands of humans came out to bathe and purify themselves in the holy river as she reached the plains.

Finally Ganga reached Kapil’s ashram and washed the ashes. The sons of king sagar and soldiers came out of the waves of Ganga in their astral bodies, glowing and liberated. There were celebrations everywhere!! Jai Ganga maiya!! #harishjohari #printshop #printsforsale #hindumythology #sanatandharma #rivergoddess #pieterweltevrede #sagarworld #innertraditions #mythologicalcreatures #storiesofindia #gangaseries #savetheganges #birthofganga #avatar

Birth of ganga series- post 17

After ganga calmed down and her mind was at peace, Shiva sat in his favorite posture and went into blissful samadhi.

A worried bhagirath pleaded to Shiva to release ganga lest he would wake up after eons. 
Shiva agreed. “My dear son,” he told him, “you may Now lead ganga to your ancestors ashes. Blow your conch shell to clear the way. She will follow you.” Saying this, lord Shiva released ganga by squeezing one of his hair locks.

Birth of ganga series- post 16

Now to invoke lord Shiva, bhagirath stood on the big toe of his left leg and prayed. After he became absorbed in the name of lord Shiva by chanting, “om namah shivaye”, lord Shiva appeared before him. Bhagirath explained him everything and Shiva agreed to do his bidding.

Lord Brahma then asked ganga to descend onto earth but she refused, arguing that the abundance of sins committed by humans that would have to carry would be too great. People will wash their impure bodies in me and I will become polluted she said.

Lord Brahma assured her that she would remain pure and instead wash away the impurities of all who came in contact with her water. Ganga was hesitant, #kaliyuga was coming and #humans were going to be crazy after the gratification of their senses. They would destroy all of nature and in the end, the earth. 
Lord Brahma reminded her of the curse of durvasa and then with no choice left but to descend. 
Ganga started her descent toward earth with full force. Lord Shiva spread his hair locks and covered the entire sky. Then with a jerk, he shook his hair-locks and tied them on his head. The size of his hair locks was so big that Ganga, with all her waves, was easily captured. Not a drop of water came to earth.

Birth of ganga series- post 15

#Bhagirath left his throne in the charge of his wise minister and entered the forest. He entered into a Deep state of meditation called #samadhi. His beard and hairs grew, and his body started glowing from radiance produced by his austerities. 
Finally #Brahma appeared and accepted his wish to bring the holy ganga to earth. “I have no objection to releasing Ganga, but if I simply release her from my kamandalu the force with which she will descent will overwhelm the earth. You must therefore pray to lord Shiva to hold the horrendous force of Ganga in his matted hairs, then I will be glad to release her.” Saying this he disappeared.

Birth of ganga series- post 14

Many generations after Anshuman, the son of king sagar, tried to win over lord Brahma with penance and patience but none could. This repetitive pattern continued till seven generations until a boy was born and named #bhagirath 
Many times what we perceive as luck or easy success could possibly be the doings of many past lives and a cumulative hard work.

Birth of ganga series- post 13

When there was no news of the army and his sons, the worried king sagar sent his only remaining son - Anshuman to find them.

Anshuman made his way to ashram of Kapil Rishi and waited patiently for his trance to break. On receiving the news and seeing the ashes, he asked the Rishi for redemption of the souls of his brothers, as on dying an unnatural death they would be roaming around like ghosts. Kapil advises that only by bringing down the pure ganga from the Heaven can the souls be redeemed.

Anshuman takes the horse and returns with the news to his kingdom.

Birth of ganga series- post 13 When there was no news of the army and his sons, the worried king sagar sent his only remaining son - Anshuman to find them. Anshuman made his way to ashram of Kapil Rishi and waited patiently for his trance to break. On receiving the news and seeing the ashes, he asked the Rishi for redemption of the souls of his brothers, as on dying an unnatural death they would be roaming around like ghosts. Kapil advises that only by bringing down the pure ganga from the Heaven can the souls be redeemed. Anshuman takes the horse and returns with the news to his kingdom. #harishjohari  #printshop  #printsforsale  #hindumythology  #sanatandharma  #rivergoddess  #pieterweltevrede  #sagarworld  #innertraditions  #mythologicalcreatures  #storiesofindia  #gangaseries  #savetheganges  #birthofganga  #avatar

Birth of ganga series- post 12

The army of sagar was hell bent on finding the auspicious horse needed to complete the fire sacrifice. They even climbed down a canyon below the earth but instead encounter one of the eight elephants that maintain the earths balance.

On the advice of the elephant they moved south, finally reaching sage Kapila ashram. 
On finding their horse they assumed the sage had stolen it, and his transcendental meditational state was a disguise. They started hurling abuses at him which woke him up from deep meditation. Yoga Agni or fire came out from his eyes and burned all sixth thousand sons of sagar into ashes in a matter of seconds.

Happy Birthday, Lord Shani (Saturn). 🖤 Happy Shani Jayanti. It is the the darkest Moon phase now (Amavasya tithi), the day before New Moon (Pratipada tithi). When this day falls on a Monday it is also called Somvati Amavasya. All kinds of prayers and rituals are traditionally performed for Shani Jayanti and Somvati Amavasya according to various #Vedic traditions. 
Today, the Sun (the father of Saturn in mythological stories, also representing our individual consciousness) is ending its transit of Aries and entering Tauras in the #sidereal #astrology. #Taurus is the productive Earth sign that rules over the material realm. Saturn represents our limitations in life, overcoming our limitations, we can achieve material and spiritual success, either of which we desire. 
The hindu month of #vaishakh is going on, and the #amavasya or new moon on this month is considered auspicious to pray to our departed #ancestors. Shani represents the old, the history and the ancestry, that is why in some states it is known as #ShaniJayanti.. Om Pram Preem Proum Sah Somvati Amavasya Shanaischaraya Namah.

Birth of ganga series- post 11

#indra, the king of heaven, saw the triumph of king sagar over all the kings of earth. This made Indra extremely insecure.

He decided to obstruct the yagya, and stole the horse and took it to the #ashram of sage #kapil, at a far off place near the Bay of Bengal that was below the earths surface and hidden from the view of humans. 
Thus with the ritual left incomplete, Indra destroyed king sagars dream to become the sovereign of the earth.

King sagar of the solar dynasty had sixty thousand and one sons. He performed the #ashwamedh #yagya or horse #sacrifice, where a horse is let loose and whichever #kingdom the horse enters has to accept the sovereignty of the king or then fight with the #army protecting the horse.

Birth of ganga series- post 9

After Ganga had received the curse, there was nothing to do but wait for the time to pass. The gods were extremely sad as they loved having Ganga around.

The eight Vasus or directions then approached Ganga and requested her to free them of their curse they had received for stealing the wish-fulfilling cow of sage Vashisht, and sentenced to go live on earth as ordinary mortals.

Ganga did not know about their story until now and said that she would surely help. She continued to live in heaven and enjoy her time there.

#happybirthdaybuddha 
Today was born an indian prince called #siddhartha in present day #nepal who has been India’s greatest cultural export ever. The religion of #Buddhism founded by his followers has given solace to millions around the world.

The full moon day in the #hindu month of #vaishak is known as #buddhapoornima.

At a time when #Hinduism had become rigid and ritualistic with so many cults and sects and gods, Buddhism came as a reform movement. It was easier to understand, and less complicated.

Buddhism now sees a revival in #india too, helping millions tapping the #Buddha within.

Meanwhile, Hinduism, like it always does assimilated the Buddha as the ninth incarnation of lord #Vishnu and gobbled up Buddhism in one large gulp.

Birth of ganga series- post 8

One day in swarga lok or heaven, the great saint or rishi or sage #Durvasa, known for his temper, happened to visit. 
While Durvasa was strolling around, a gust of wind came and blew off the only cloth with which he wrapped. All the other gods turned their faces, except #ganga who started to giggle uncontrollably. The Rishi was furious at this point. “Ganga you are disrespectful. You mock saints and are a disgrace to the dwellers of higher Lokas. You will have leave heaven and dwell on earth as a river. When the humans wash their dirty linen in your water, you will realize how privileged you have been.” Everyone including ganga was shocked at the #curse, they respectfully begged him to revoke his curse.

Ganga realized her misdemeanor and asked the sage to set a fixed time for her return. 
Durvasa, after considering her request, said, “ When your water becomes polluted you may come back again. Now that you have become respectful you in turn will get respect from people on earth.” #harishjohari #printshop #printsforsale #hindumythology #sanatandharma #rivergoddess #pieterweltevrede #sagarworld #innertraditions #mythologicalcreatures #storiesofindia #gangaseries #savetheganges #birthofganga #avatar

Birth of ganga series- post 7

The young and charming #ganga made life for the dwellers of Brahma lok a lot of fun through her playful nature, her music and her dance. 
She was a happy girl and she enjoyed living in Brahma lok. She also had free passage to all the other lokas, and she brought joy and happiness to everyone wherever she went.

All the love and admiration showered on her by lord Brahma and all the other gods made ganga a little arrogant and high-handed, but her beauty, charm and light-hearted nature compelled the gods to overlook this minor part of her behavior.

Meanwhile, after measuring all the lokas above the earth, lord Vishnu, still disguised as brahmachari, asked, “where should I put my third step, O King? The entire earth and heaven has been measured by me only  in two steps.” “You should put your third step on my head, O Lord,” King Bali replied with great humility. “That is all I can offer. I have nothing more left.” Lord Vishnu put his left foot on Bali’s head and pressed down with tremendous force. King Bali’s entire body sank into earth, reaching all the way to #patallok or the underworld.

Everyone rejoiced including the humans and the gods.

The water that lord Brahma was able to obtain from washing Vishnu’s foot was like elixir. 
It was from this magic water that, in due course of time, a beautiful girl was born. The girl was adopted by lord Brahma as his #daughter and was given the name ganga.

In his second step he measured all seven #lokas and his foot even reached up to the abode of lord #Brahma.

At an opportune moment, lord Vishnu took birth as the dwarf #brahmachari (#celibate). #shukracharya, the guru of the demons, became aware of this new incarnation through his #meditation and rushed into the private chambers of king #Bali to tell him about #Vishnu’s intentions.

Bali was unconcerned with news and retorted, that was honored that Vishnu, the unchallenged lord of the three worlds, was coming to him as a beggar. Shukracharya was furious with Bali’s attitude.

King Bali immediately recognized Vishnu as he entered the royal court room. His divine presence was overwhelming. “What brings you here sire?” Asked Bali politely. “Oh respected king, I am a young #Brahmin student with no place to live. I need to erect a little hut. I need little land, only as much land as I can cover my little feet in three steps.” Bali agreed and performed #samkalpa by sipping water three times from a kamandalu or water pot and chanting his intention. After the ritual was over, the #vaman avatar started increasing in size and in his first step he measured the entire earth.

Brahma chided the gods for their complacence and lack of discipline which has resulted in forced exit from #swargaloka or #heaven. Together with Brahma, as their leader, they approach #Vishnu, the preserver, whose abode is in #ksheersagar or the ocean of milk, seated on #sheeshnaag - the eternal #serpent along with his consort #lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity.

Lord Vishnu understood their plight. “Cast off your fears.” He said. “I will definitely find a way to get you back your home and your glory. I cannot defeat #bali in battle because his penance, disciplined life, meritorious acts of charity that have made him invincible. The only way to conquer him is to trick him.

Birth of ganga series- post 1

In a time long ago, there was a powerful demon called Bali, from the family of #prahlad and #Virochana. 
By performing rigorous austerities, by charity, and following hard disciplines, he acquired so much power that he became #invincible. He conquered the three worlds, driving the gods out of heaven.

#Bali prohibited the worship of gods in the three lokas. When the dwellers of #bhulok stopped performing the #homa (fire sacrifice), the gods began to starve. 
The defeated gods went to #Brahma, creator of the world.

Workshop / lessen in Yantra schilderen onder begeleiding van master artist Pieter Weltevrede.
Yantra’s ( sacred geometry) sacred art vanuit de Veda’s waarin kennis en wijsheid verscholen ligt.  Pieter komt in de maanden april mei en juni steeds een donderdag begeleiding geven in deze kunst en wijsheid: 26 april - 17 mei - 21 juni.
Inschrijving is mogelijk per dag of voor de hele cursus.

Pieter heeft internationale bekendheid. Wij voelen ons dan ook vereerd dat Pieter hier les komt geven. 
We starten met de Ganesha yantra. Deze tekenen in de daarvoor afgestemde maten omndeze vervolgens in te schilderen.
Heb je Ganesha al geschilderd dan is er ruimte voor de chakra’s , numerologie of andere geometrische figuren. 
Een yantra is een krachtig instrument voor meditatie. Tijdens het tekenen en schilderen openbaart zich de energie van de yantra ( het symbool van een mantra) 
Het mediteren op de yantra presenteert de figuren en geometrische patronen en brengt innerlijke balans en harmonie. Focus op het centrum. En je neemt plaats in de visuele nonverbale rechter hersenhelft. Het verhoogt je bewustzijn en zelfbewustzijn. En verbindt je met de kosmische energie van het yantra

Pieter is die dagen van 10.00-14.00 uir aanwezig. 
De deuren van Svaha zijn open tot 17.00 uur
Zodat je ruim de tijd hebt je yantra evt af te schilderen
Spullen zijn aanwezig
Maar werk je liever met je eigen spullen meem ze dan mee.
Namasté Gerdie

#Sahasrara or seventh #chakra

Meaning: Thousand-petaled.

Location: Top of the cranium; cerebral plexus. Soma chakra and kameshvara chakra are including in this location. 
Bija petal sounds: All pure sounds from AH to KSHA.

Loka (Plane): Satyam Loka, the plane of truth and reality.

Ruling Planet: #Ketu.

Yantra Form: Circle as a full moon. Above the sphere is an umbrella of one thousand lotus petals arranged in the variegated colors of the rainbow.

#Immortality is achieved within this chakra. In this state there is no activity of the mind and no knower, no knowledge, nothing to be known: They all become unified and liberated.

#Samadhi is the pure bliss of total inactivity. Up to the sixth chakra the yogi may enter a trance in which activity or form still remains within the consciousness. In the 7th chakra, the prana (vital life force) moves upward to the highest point and the mind establishes itself in the pure void, the space between the two hemispheres.

The yogi is Sat-Chit-Anand or truth, being, bliss. He is his own real self, and as long as he stays in his physical body he retains nondual consciousness, enjoying the play of lila without becoming troubled by pleasure and pain, honors and illuminations.

According to the shastras, this is the seat of self-luminescent #soul, or chitta, the essence of #being. The yogi becomes realized, one with the cosmic principles that govern the entire universe within the body. He obtains all #siddhis (powers) up to the #Somachakra, where he encounters #Kamadhenu, the wish-fulfilling cow within himself. He is a #siddha, but has transcended the desire to manifest those wishes.

#Ajna or sixth #chakra

Meaning: Authority, Command, Unlimited power

Location: Medula plexus, pineal plexus; point between the eyebrows.

Bija petal sounds: Hang, Kshang.

#Tattva (#element): Maha Tattva, in which all other Tattvas are present in their rarified pure essence (Tanmantra). Loka (Plane): Tapas Loka, the place of austerity or penance.

Ruling Planet: #Saturn (solar, male). Yantra Form: White circle with two luminescent petals. These petals are habernulae of the pineal gland.

#ardhanarishvara, the half-male, half-female Shiva-Shakti symbolic of basic polarity is the deity of this chakra. It stands in a lingam known as Itara lingam. The lingam is shining white, like the color of light.

#Hakini Shakti has four arms and six heads. She imparts the knowledge of unconditional truth, the awareness of non-duality. The body of the #pineal gland protrudes into the third ventricle and is surrounded by cerebrospinal fluid. This clear watery fulid flows from the #Soma chakra (Moon Chakra), which lies above the Ajna. It moves through the hollow spaces (ventricles) in the brain and downward through the spinal cord to the base of the spine. The pineal helps regulate this flow in a balanced manner, It reponds very sensitively to light. When a person enters Ajna, light will form around his head an #aura.
Because the #yogi brings the breathe and the mind under control in this state, he maintains a continual state of #samadhi (realized nonduality) during all actions. Whatever he desires comes true, as does the ability to induce visions of the past, present and future. The #thirdeye is the #conscience. The yogi himself becomes a divine manifestation. He embodies all elements in their purest form or essence. All duality ceases.

#Rakini is the two-headed Shakti of this chakra. The first inspiration of art and music comes from her. The two heads represent a split energy and the efforts of a second-chakra person should be to balance the inner and outer worlds. 
The chakra encompasses the astral plane as well as the planes of entertainment, fantasy, nullity, jealousy, mercy, envy and joy. The astral plane is the one between the earth and heaven. Fantasy may be used to advantage through arts and crafts.

#Krishna is the highest form of Godhood in #hinduism. He is a 16 kala (Beam of light) avatar of Lord Vishnu. Ram was a 12 kala avatar. Normal humans vary between 4-6 Kala. Krishna is the most well rounded personality and is able to strike the perfect balance between the #spirituality (inner worlds) and #materialism (outer world). Krishna is pure love energy. During his #avatar Krishna loved his fellow human beings in spite of their behavior towards him. The gopis and innumerable wives are symbolic of the love between god and his/her devotees. The peacock is closely associated with Krishna, as a bird that is the epitome of #beauty. #blue is the color associated with Vishnu and so krishna which is the color of the sky and sea, basically life. 
A Lotus represents purity. Its roots are in the mud but the flower bears no stains of the mud and is pure, this is the state that we should strive to achieve in the physical world where we live. The #Lotus petals in a #yantra usually appear inside a #circle, which itself is inside a #square - the #bhupur or gateway to the yantra - four main directions. (In a yantra East direction is North what we see in a map). The ten petals are the ten doors to the human body from which the life force leaves the body on #death; or the ten directions - it is a number of completeness And wholeness, which is Krishna. 
The six pointed star, known in the west as the #StarofDavid, is a combination of an upward pointing triangle represents the #element of #fire or male energy and the a downward pointing triangle representing the element of #water or female energy. The superimposition of the two in a symmetrical pattern brings about a balance of the two energies. The #Bindu or center point is where the deity presides. It is a point of concentration while meditating.

Yesterday was #Angarika #Chaturthi, which is considered a most auspicious #ganesh day in India. Every 4th day of the descending moon phase or #KrishnaPaksh of the #Hindu calendar is #Sankasthi Chaturthi (means 4th), when that day comes on a Tuesday it is a double whammy and known as Angarika Chaturthi. In 2018 these dates only occur on the following dates - 
2018  Tuesday, 3rd of April
2018  Tuesday, 31st of July
2018  Tuesday, 25th of December “Angarika” means red like burning coal embers. He was a devotee of lord Ganesh in ancient times, that wished his name to be associated with Ganesh forever and Ganesh granted him that boon. 
Devotees fast on this day and meditate on Ganesh. There are 13 stories that are read, one for each month plus the extra month #adhikmas which is added into the calendar (like the leap year) every four years. 
The energies of Ganesh on days like these are exalted and one can received extra benefits that might not be available on other days. It’s all about the timing, isn’t it? Jai ganesha!! Jai Siddhivinayak!! Ganesh circumbates his parents who are the world for him, while his brother #kartikay goes around the entire #universe on his peacock. Ganesh wins the wager. Prints available on demand. Shipping worldwide.

#ganeshyantra with a mandala design in background. #ganesh is the son of lord #Shiva. He has a human body with an #elephant head. His own father cut his head as he was not able to recognize him, as #Parvati had just created him from clay while taking a bath. Parvati was furious, to calm her, Shiva cut the head of the first animal he saw and reinstated Ganesh. 
The father is our first #guru who gives us a harsh reality check which a mothers love often can cover up. The new head is symbolic of wisdom given by our father to us, that too a head as big as the elephant, an extremely intelligent mammal with a great memory. 
Did you know? That the downward pointing yantras are #female and the upward pointing are male #energy (yin and yang not physical male or female taken in a literal sense of the word). A yantra is fixed in design whereas a #mandala can be more free flowing design. In this case the Ganesh yantra is an upward pointing triangle. #Green is the predominant color in this yantra which subconsciously creates a #red color in the mind which is considered very auspicious and fertile.

It is not always that #hanumanjayanti comes on a #Saturday - (hanuman is the only god that can control #saturn who rules #Saturday) the first full moon of the new year dedicated to none other the humble #hanuman - our prehistoric ape ancestor that is believed to live in all the four ages described in the #vedas 
Could the #yeti or #Bigfoot be hanuman? wandering still in the Himalayas continuing his penance to dear ram.. He has multiple fathers, #sun is his guru, the god of wind or #vayu transported the seeds from lord #shiva (he is the 11 th rudra avatar of Shiva) into the womb of mother #anjana hence he is called #anjanaye in the south of india, his biological father was #Kesari the king of apes that lived on earth in ancient times.. Hanuman works hard, talks less is loyal and devoted to his master ram, to the extent he doesn’t marry! one cannot help but be attracted to his character.. Happy birthday hanuman, bless us all on earth 🌏

Can a #god be more beautiful than one always surrounded by #dogs? well #dattatreya is one such god in Hinduism.

He is considered the default deity of all the saintly #traditions of India, and closely connected with the #nathsampradaya or nine saints #navnath - an ancient monk tradition which is centuries old.

Rishi #atri had a pious wife called #anusuya Who was tested by the holy trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and shiva. They appeared before her and requested to serve them lunch naked, the clever anusuya turned them into babies and breast fed them without any shame thus giving birth to this form. That is why 6 hands and #weapons of all three gods can be seen in his form. 
The #girnar Mountain in #Gujarat has the footprints of dattatreya.

Dattatreya had 24 teachers or #gurus from nature including water, sun, python, hawk and deer. He learnt and incorporated from each one of them.

Even #ram the #avatar of lord Vishnu on earth, had to take the help of #Devi to defeat his arch enemy #Ravana. When the male gods fail and have no options left they turn to the all powerful #Shakti who goes by many names and is extremely complex to understand.

Ramayan, the epic tale detailing the story of ram, is full of #idealistic characters, the ideal husband, the ideal brother and the ideal son etc. #maryadapurushottam rams incarnation with his ever smiling face (#arungovil in the ramayan series) teaches us how to behave in the various situations that life puts us in to test our mettle. These are lessons to be learnt for the #evolution of our soul.

May ram bless us all on this pious occasion of #ramnavmi

Today is #ashtmi or the eight day of the #navratri or nine nights dedicated to the divine feminine. 
#eight is a number connected with #esoteric concepts, it is the pure feminine energy.

#Durga is the supreme empress of the manifest universe, as we are all nothing but #Shakti or energy 
The male gods have little or no role in the manifest universe, so we live in the domain of #Durga whose mount is the lion.

She is invincible and impossible to understand or conquer, she is above the holy trinity Brahma Vishnu and Shiva, because she created them in the form of #adishakti 
All demons that she kills are representation of the inner #demons for example raktbeej is the monkey mind, chand and munda are “me” and “mine” etc

On the eight day a #homa or fire sacrifice is made and offerings of ghee flowers incense etc are given to the great goddess, the 700 verses of the sacred text #durgasaptashati are read out.

On the sixth day of the nine divine nights dedicated to the mother goddess or #Chaitra #Navratri (there are four of them in a year, two are secret and for adepts, and the autumn one is more popular than the spring one) lets talk about #tripurasundari (the most beautiful one in all the three worlds -three signifying any spiritual concept that is related with the number 3 – example rajasic, satvic or tamasic; or then creation, sustenance and destruction etc.) one of the 10 wisdom goddesses or #dasmahavidyas. 
In her four arms she holds a noose, a goad, arrows and a bow. She sits on a lotus with arising from the navel of a supine body of Lord Shiva, who rests on a throne whose legs are Brahma, Vishnu, Siva and Rudra. Saraswati and Lakshmi are her attendants. The #Sriyantra is devoted to her which is commonly associated with Goddess of wealth, Lakshmi. 
She is one of the oldest worshipped forms of the feminine divine and associated with the #srividya cult in the South of India, also connected with the famous saint and philosopher of 8th century India, who is revived Hinduism, #Shankaracharya. 
The other interesting name for her is #sodasi which means the one who is 16 years old, considered to be the most tender and delicate age for a female. Again emphasizing the extreme beauty of this ancient goddess.

#Chinnamasta is one of the ten wisdom goddesses (#Dasmahavidyas) worshiped in the tradition of #Tantra. 
Parvati, the consort of Lord Shiva, goes to the river to take a bath with her two attendants Dakini and Varnini. As they are walking back to Mount Kailasa, her attendants feel strong hunger pangs and beg the goddess for something to eat. #Parvati insists on them to wait till they reach home where she can provide them with anything their heart desires but they cannot wait that long. On their repeated insistence, in a fit Parvati servers her own head with her finger nails and three streams of blood flow out, feeding all three of them. This form of #shakti (energy)is called as Chinnamasta. With the #hindu god of #love, #Kamdev (representing sexual desire) and #Rati (representing sexual intercourse) lying below them with Rati having the dominant position. 
The symbolism of this imagery can be interpreted as a self-sacrificing mother of the universe that can go to any extent to fulfill the wishes of her devotees. The three streams of blood represent the three main nadis or channels where the prana (vital life-giving energy) flows in the body, especially in the spine area where the Kundalini energy rests. Ida and Pingala represent the two differing components of duality, whereas the central nadi is the sushumna when duality ceases to exist. The aim of doing #yoga as the word is understood in the west is to open these channels in the body so that the prana can flow unobstructed in order to take the aspirant towards higher states of #consciousness. The imagery indicates the control over sex.

Since we are in the period of the nine divine days of the mother or #navratri, let’s get to know the #dasmahavidyas or the #wisdomgoddesses from the #tantric tradition. These lesser known goddesses are mainly used for attaining boons or specific worldly or spiritual desires.

#dhumavati is one of the ten that stands out, she is the #eternalwidow, as she eats up her consort lord #shiva when hungry, and Shiva curses her to remain a widow After he has been resurrected. Again pointing to the bizarre but symbolic stories of the mahavidyas and the assertion of the female against a patriarchal society.

She is shown as ugly, angry wearing dirty clothes with her breasts hanging down. She rides a chariot that has a banner decorated with a crow emblem. She is always hungry and thirsty and looks unsatisfied. In the nine planets she can be said to be #ketu. She is considered inauspicious and closely related with #alaksmi the elder sister of the goddess of #wealth that brings misfortune.

Her worship instills a feeling of renunciation, and she is Said to be partial to unmarried people. She is a protector of the local village and drives away evil spirits.

The apparently confusing Hindu calendar, like the #Chinese one, is a #Lunisolar Calendar i.e. uses a combination of the Sun and Moon unlike the Western, purely #Solar Calendar or the #Islamic Calendar which is based solely on the Moon. 
Another major difference between Western And #Vedic methods is that it follows the #Sidereal Calendar (vs #Tropical) i.e. following the movement of the sun around the earth but the earth was kept as the central observational point hence it is the apparent movement of the sun (being a star it is fixed) as observed from the earth. Hence it is the time taken by the sun to go from one fixed star to the same fixed star. 
#Sankranti's are festivals connected with the movement of the Sun. When the Sun enters the Zodiac of Pisces is when "#MeenaSankranti" is celebrated (most months in Hindu calendars start mid-month of the western calendar). #Pisces is the last #zodiac and people influenced by it are by far the most spiritual, calm and evolved. Pisces is symbolic of liberation or #Moksha, so this is a good month to do spiritual practices. 
This is also the last zodiac after which a new year will start in certain regions of India (There are many regional differences in calendars in India, each having their own rules). Donations are given and people bathe in holy rivers of India. Also a #mythological story connected with this month is the one when #Indra (symbolized as sun) comes along the Moon (at No Moon or #Amavasya - Sun and Moon are together) disguised as Sage #Gautam (Jupiter is the ruler of Pisces) to have sex with his wife #Ahilya (symbolic of #Venus - which is exalted in Pisces). Hence no marriages in India take place this month (also from 14th December to 14th January called as #MalMaas). Marriages taking place this month may result in Ahilya type of situations, of getting blamed for something one did not do. So enjoy the next month of the Sun in Pisces, much respite from the otherwise manic times we live in!! #pieterweltevrede #blessedbyramanandsagar #sacredgeometry #sacredart #printondemand

Also a #mythological  story connected with this month is the one when #Indra  (symbolized as sun) comes along the Moon (at No Moon or #Amavasya  - Sun and Moon are together) disguised as Sage #Gautam  (Jupiter is the ruler of Pisces) to have sex with his wife #Ahilya  (symbolic of #Venus  - which is exalted in Pisces). Hence no marriages in India take place this month (also from 14th December to 14th January called as #MalMaas ). Marriages taking place this month may result in Ahilya type of situations, of getting blamed for something one did not do. So enjoy the next month of the Sun in Pisces, much respite from the otherwise manic times we live in!! #pieterweltevrede  #blessedbyramanandsagar  #sacredgeometry  #sacredart  #printondemand 

The apparently confusing Hindu calendar, like the #Chinese one, is a #Lunisolar Calendar i.e. uses a combination of the Sun and Moon unlike the Western, purely #Solar Calendar or the #Islamic Calendar which is based solely on the Moon. 
Another major difference between Western And #Vedic methods is that it follows the #Sidereal Calendar (vs #Tropical) i.e. following the movement of the sun around the earth but the earth was kept as the central observational point hence it is the apparent movement of the sun (being a star it is fixed) as observed from the earth. Hence it is the time taken by the sun to go from one fixed star to the same fixed star. 
#Sankranti's are festivals connected with the movement of the Sun. When the Sun enters the Zodiac of Pisces is when "#MeenaSankranti" is celebrated (most months in Hindu calendars start mid-month of the western calendar). #Pisces is the last #zodiac and people influenced by it are by far the most spiritual, calm and evolved. Pisces is symbolic of liberation or #Moksha, so this is a good month to do spiritual practices.

#Tuesday, or #Mangalvaar (translated into English as the attack of #Mars), #Ganesha the most beloved god of #SanatanDharma (The eternal path) is worshiped. 
There are long queues outside of the 🔔 #Siddhivinayak Temple 🔔 in Dadar through out the day as it maintains its status of the most prominent Ganesha Temple in the mega metropolis of India. The previous night, many #Mumbaikars walk barefoot to the temple from far off suburbs only to receive his "Darshan" or "Sighting" in the early morning on Tuesday. 
Why is Tuesday considered Ganesha's Day?

#Ganesha is the remover of obstacles and is the first deity that any Hindu prays at the start of a ritual or ceremony or fire-sacrifice. The #ancient #seers put into story form the various concepts of spirituality and occult as allegorical tales with visuals are easier to remember and get passed on easily from generation to generation. The elephant imagery of Ganesha is essentially giving us a subliminal message of non-violence, intelligence and denoting might whilst on a #vegetarian diet. The #elephant is the largest being that walks on physical earth representing the earthy nature of Ganesha, or the physical plane that we live on. Tuesday which is governed by the fiery planet Mars is always referred to as Shubh or Auspicious (Shubh Mangal). Mars is the son of the Mother earth in #Vedic literature. Hence the connection between our beloved son of Shiva and the earthy planet Mars which rules Tuesday.

Ganesha is an easy god to please and it is said doesn't require much rituals or adherence to strict routines. He has two wives #Riddhi and #Siddhi. 
Again do you remember the #Hanuman Chalisa - Asth (8) siddhis and Nav (9) niddhis? 
These are nothing but mystical powers that can be acquired if one does certain rituals and mantra practices. They do not grant liberation but can grant super human strength and paranormal ability - examples below - 
Aṇimā: reducing one's body even to the size of an atom

Mahima: expanding one's body to an infinitely large size

Garima: becoming infinitely heavy

Laghima: becoming almost weightless

Prāpti: ability to be anywhere at will

Vishnu is one of the most important gods in the Hindu pantheon and, along with Brahma and Shiva, is considered a member of the holy trinity (trimurti) of Hinduism. Vishnu is the Preserver and guardian of men (Narayana), he protects the order of things (dharma) and, when necessary, he appears on earth in various incarnations or avatars to fight demons and fierce creatures and so maintain cosmic harmony.  Four-armed Vishnu, the Hindu god of preservation, commonly shown as standing or lying on a giant, primordial snake, Sheshanaag, floating on Ksheer Sagar (ocean of milk). He is depicted as holding chakra (disk-like weapon), mace, and conch.

Mahashivaratri Festival is celebrated with devotion and religious fervor on the 14th night of the new moon in the Hindu month of Phalgun. Devotees observe fast all through the day and night of Shivaratri in honor of Lord Shiva and pay a visit to Shiva temples. Ritual bath of Shiva Lingam with milk, water, honey etc is also performed by the devotees as a part of the tradition. Many believe that Shivaratri Festival marks the wedding day of Lord Shiva and Parvati. However, according to some legends, it was on the auspicious night of Shivaratri that Lord Shiva performed the ‘Tandava’, the dance of the primal creation, preservation and destruction.
This form of Shiva is the conqueror of fear and death. There is a hymn invoking Mahamrityunjaya Shiva called Mahamrityunjaya mantra which relieves a person from fear of death.

Merry #mahashivratri to All, a mega auspicious day-THE darkest night (14th moon) in the Vedic calendar, honoring Lord #Shiva "First Yogi" and Destroyer of the false #ego illusions for #higherconsciousness.

Im looking forward to my annual #vigil all nighter of #meditation , #chanting #prayer beginning more intensely Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning. #mystics says that this night is of special significance because of the alignment of the Northern Hemisphere, producing an intense upsurge of cosmic energy thus a potent time to observe silence, fast, meditate. ** SO If you cannot or do not meditate, this is definitely ONE day you must!! You will reap immense benefits! ** Worshipping of Lord Shiva on Shivaratri bestows one with happiness and prosperity by overcoming darkness and ignorance in one’s life. 
One of the meaning of "Shiva" is "that which is not." May we NOT live according to the limitations of our body, mind, psychological programming as this is not who we Truly are. Wishing all wonder-ful InSights for inner growth on this crazy, miraculous life journey!  Aum Namah Shivaya. #yoga #ayurveda #gutsierliving #allnighter #oneness #onceinayear #silence #agni #fasting #naturesrhythm #within #harharmahadev #pieterweltevrede #ardhanarishvara #union #letthatshitgo #newmoonmagic

Hindu God Hanuman, the divine monkey (Vanara), is believed to be an incarnation of Lord Shiva. He is an ardent devotee of Ram - the seventh incarnation of Hindu God Vishnu. He was born to monkey king Kesari and Anjana. Lord Pavan (Wind God) had blessed him with his powers when he was in Anjana's womb due to which he is also popularly known as Pavanputra Hanuman. He is shown as meditating on the river bank at dawn, the sun rising up the horizon.
