It again goes back to, what you sow, so shall you reap. Being a Siddhar, I always say that you need to understand yourself, before you try to make someone to understand themselves. That’s why it is said in a funny way, that the only thing you get very easily and freely are advises. However, the people giving advises, how many are ready to follow the same by themselves is a question.

As Siddhi Times focuses on empowering self and community in a positive way, we welcome our readers who want to contribute and serve for this noble cause by means of monetary, knowledge sharing through articles, proof reading, editing, and marketing.

The newly acquired land of 120 Acres by Hindu Temple of Georgia in Carrollton has already a place to start the worship. 7 full time dedicated pundits/ Pujaris will be allotted for the Carrollton Hindu Temple. Board members and the governing body of the Hindu Temple of Georgia are taking necessary actions to start the services of the temple very soon.

The total weight of all the 108 Shiva Murthis would be approximately 3.5 tones. The statues are made with the major mixture of Gold, Silver and Copper. As we every one know that, this is going to be the 1st and only Shiv Temple/Mandir in the Hindu lineage with 108 Shivji(not dances of Shiva or Shiva lingam).

n the past issues, we discussed what spirituality is. In this issue, we will discuss about the writings of some “ Siddhars”. Siddhars are of special quality saints or monks. They are capable of doing the hardest tasks by the simplest . There are eight siddhis and as they are the masters of all those eight siddhis, they are called as Siddhars. The eight siddhis are,

He has referred the five The power of increasing one’s size without limitation. basic elements as a five-headed cobra and he refers the human mind as cobra.

The first two can be easily eradicated by doing the meditations and prayers and to eradicate the third we Garima (weight) -- need the help of a Guru and the almighty. Aanavam means being Capacity to weigh heavy, though in appearance small size. proud, Kanvam means a little bit of jealousy and Maya is the black screen we keep between the super human power and us.

Even though it is very hard to bour world. It is the power of attaining everything desired. control the human mind, he narrates a few exercises to the mind to have a good control.

He is Sri Sri Selvam Siddhar Swamiji of Agasthiyar Siddhar peedam of India. Pambaatti Siddhar: In this week, we can analyze a few verses of

bone are not so good materials. Normally these are the food of the wild animals. If the life in the body goes out and turns to a shape of dead body automatically a bad smell and odor starts from the body. Therefore, we should stop worrying about this physical body. We have to take care only to maintain this body in a good level. Then only we can have a sound mind. Our lifetime is not a standard one: Our lifetime is just like bubble in the water. Even though the lifetime is very limited, we do not take care to make the life useful to the development of the human race. We use our livelihood and brain only to fight with each other. We should pray more and more to the almighty and only by the

The first exercise he explains is the Kundalini yoga, which is very helpful to control the human mind. Kundalini is a Sanskrit word meaning either “coiled up” or “coiling like a snake.” There are a number of other translations of the term usually emphasizing a more serpent nature to the word - e.g. ‘serpent power’. Kundalini Yoga is a meditative discipline - or a system of meditative techniques and movements - within the yogic tradition that focuses on psycho-spiritual growth and the body’s potential for maturation. The practice of Kundalini Yoga consists of a number of bodily postures, expressive movements and utterances, characterological cultivations, breathing patterns, and degrees of concentration. By properly practicing the Kundalini yoga, one can easily control the mind. By controlling the mind, one can easily erase the evil thoughts in the mind and regulate the mind. Siva Vaakkiyar Siddhar: He used to curse the people, those who are quarrelling with each other based on religions. His idea is that the human race is only one and there is only one deity common to the human race. If each one of us starts adopting his theory there will be no quarrelling at all. He teaches us a lot about spirituality. According to him, the base of spirituality is the mind and the humanity. By adopting the humanitarian rules, one can have the most advanced spiritual life style and by that spiritual life style of the individual, the entire human race will lead a great peaceful life. “One can live according to their thoughts” - Sri Sri Selvam Siddhar Swamiji By practicing the yoga techniques, we can think to the highest spiritual level and can have a higher style of spiritual life. I wish to quote one of the verses and explain how it helps one to reach the peaks of spirituality. It is a known fact that our human body is a combination of flesh and bone. Even though the physical body is not made of good materials such as gold, we show a great love and affection towards the physical body. The blood, flesh and

prayer, we can cultivate our mind to the best humanity. Only by having the best humanity and humanitarian thoughts, we can have the best base to a spiritual life. Do not show a great attraction towards the opposite sex: If we have feelings that are more sexual, we cannot control our mind and body. The mind and body will become weaker and weaker if we have the sexual feelings. The Siddhar advices us to have the sexual attraction only towards our life partners and not with others.

Lot of so called Swami and Swaminis say that they are coming to US to help their community. Is it mean that they have already settled every ones problems in their mother land?. Coming to US is mainly a money making propositions for lot of so called spiritual personality. Sri Selvam “Siddhar”

bout 70 years back one incidence took place at New York. A team of three friends Frederic, Tony and Jim were good friends. They were studying in a college. Since the accommodation in the college-hostel was limited, they had to stay in a private chamber. They were the guys as well as close, intimate and attached to each other. One Sunday as it was a holiday, they desired to watch a film show. The film was most entertaining. After the show was over, they dinned in an inn and came to their residing building. When they reached the building it was around 10’ o clock in the night. There was electrical power failure which made the entire street to be dark. They waited for more than one hour in the floor side of the building. Their chamber was in 48th floor of the building. The elevator service to go upwards was also not possible on account of power

To make it easy and forget the tediousness of climbing up, they suggested telling their ambitions of future and the living style. Each one should tell for 16 floors to their account. The first one was Frederic who started to tell his ambition and then walking up was continued. He had to continue for the first 16 floors. “Look my friends, the world is with full of happiness, a life with good income and spending the money lavishingly will be the expectations for me. I am coming from a family of traders; I like to study further in aeronautics. I will become a pilot. Every day, I will be in a position to go to all the cities and meet people while I discharge my duties. I like all the culture and civilization”. Friend - interfered and asked “What about your married life?” Then Frederic replied “It will only be a nuisance to me to be under control of one girl. My desires are different. When I reach Paris, there should be one lover with bouquet to receive me, preferably at the haulting station for me. I will take her to all the beautiful places and finally I will be staying in a good hotel and talk to her and observe the trends of love and dine with her and dance. Of course a very comfortable and happy day I can pass. Next morning the flight shall be to another destination where too, I will be welcomed with another girl whom I trust to be worthy of my love” Tony interfered and asked “while you are of nature to have more girls, how could you expect this to be worthy?” In a confusied stage, Frederic replied,”I have made it clear that I will not be entangled with any girls and become a slave

aha Rishi Naradha happened to come to earth where the people were actually living a life of discomfort. Those who were blessed with education (Saraswathi Kadaksha) and the others with wealth and full of money (Lakshmi Kadaksha) and the other group with power and strength ( Shakthi Kadaksha) were also facing all sort of worries. So, it was actually an astonishment ‘why the human being should live without happiness?’ In Shiva Loga, God Eswara was in meditation. The place was called by another name “Kailash”. The divines and devotees were also with the eagerness to have the dharshan (God’s presence) of Lord Shiva. Kailash is the northern mountain stretching from “Gangothri”, where the River Ganges originates. The other river, “Brahma Putra” from the eastern region gets the place of birth and flows in to western direction and bring fame to Bharat (India). Mount Everest and cave of Amaranth, all are the places of Lord Shiva.What place could be omitted? Nothing can be. God Eswara exists every where. He opened his eyes after the meditation was over. All the divines, devotees and Nandi Deva were worshipping Lord Eswara. ‘Narayana’… ‘Narayana – the slogan of Maha Rishi Naradha added the curiosity there. Maha Rishi worshipped God Eswara and with submission, he commenced his conversation. “Oh! Lord Eswara, among the three great lords, all are honoured and called as “Theen Moorthy”; the creation is done by Lord Brahma who create the stars, worlds, seas and rivers; the feeder and protector Lord Naryana Moorthy feeds food and make a life for all and being; the destroyer, your Lordship, posses the charge of doing destruction of lives after their term of permitted times. While all these things are being properly happening, the people upon earth are suffering. I want to know further that, Goddess Parvathi, your good self’s wife, gives power and strength to the people; Goddess Saraswathi the wife of Lord Brahma gives all arts and education; Goddess Mahalakshmi wife of Lord Naryana Moorthi (Vishnu) gives all the wealth to humanity. Even then, they are under trouble – your lord ship Eswara should have the courtesy to do some Marga (remedial – act) for the uplift of humans on the earth” Lord Eswara felt justice is in the demands of Maha Rishi Naradha. the Lord replied “Naradha! Your claim is a worthy one; you can get answer for this! Wait for a little more time. During Simha month (Avani), on the day of Avitta (Dhanista) star, you have to go and meet “Sri Vigneshwar”, who will be showing the proper way”.

The month Avani and Star (Dhanista) came and Maha Rishi went to see ‘Sri Vigneshwar’, who is elder son of Lord Eswara. Siddhi and Bukthi were the wives of Lord Vigneswar. He had two sons. First son through Siddhi was called as Chitranga and the next one through Bukthi named Buthranga. They were playing little away from Lord Vigneshwar. This was the tune at which Maha Rishi Naradha entered the palace of Lord Vigneshwar. Naradha the great Gnani and Rishi, was welcomed bylord Vigneshwar. They were exchanging the news of different happening’s of Kailash and other worlds. The children who were playing there. When they looked at the world, the people were worshipping the Gods. Female members were actually tying a knotof red twine with flower, on the hands of male members. This was some thing strange and attractive to Chitranga and Buthranga. They came closer to their father Lord Vigneshwar and wished to have the red twine in form of ribbon. Then Maha Rishi Naradha enthusiastically told the children. “Dear children, it is Raksha Bandan- a festival celebrated for the welfare and victories of the brothers. Every sister at home will tie this ‘Raksha’ which they saw in red colour with thing and flower” The explanation was heard by Chitranga and Buthranga and they ran straight away to their mothers Siddhi and Bukthi. Children asked their mothers to get the “Raksha” for them immediately. Siddhi told “My lovely children!!! This sacred Raksha should be actually tied only through the sisters, born along with you. But at our home you are both boys, there is no girl. How could it be possible?” The boys went on adamantly and asked their father to show them their sister. Lord Vigneshwar thought for a moment and felt that wherever Maha Rishi Naradha happened to go, there would be certainly complications and mischiefs, (‘Kalahapriya’ is the otherword for Naradha who likes these entire sort of internal mutiny and for his liking it is the day now. He rules it. On the other day, when he went to Kailash, Lord Eswara told him to meet Sri Vigneshwar on this auspicious day. So, he waited to see what was going on). Lord Vigneshwar called his two wives and boys. He soothed them and willfuly by his “creative power”, created a female sister for the boys. Naradha Maha Rishi requested all the great Gods, Vishnu (Narayan Moorthi), Brahma and Eswara to attend the naming ceremony. Gods and Goddesses Vishnu-Mahalakshmi, Brahma-Saraswathi and the grand father and grand mother Eswara- Parvathi appeared and graced to name the child as “Santoshi”. Santoshi gives the meaning of happiness. Santoshi, very happily tied the Rakshas to her brothers’ Chitranga and Buthranga happiness is comfort with wealth. Those who worship “Goddess Santoshi”can get all the wealth and live happily. The mantra (sacred prayer) ‘Jai Santoshima’ will give, every body the victories and happiness.

Midunam
The occupying place is 3rd house and confirms the past 7 ½ years of challenges are getting over. For as the native Miduna rasi, Saturn is not disturbing much. But the health of children (if the native is having children) will be in a state of worry. The best thing is to worship Sani Bhagawan and Navagrhaha devathas, on the day of jenma Nakshatra (star) of the children, which will be helpful to get relief. The look of the Jupiter will fall from 21st November to your rasi. So, the care of Jupiter will help you till November 2008.

New ventures such as investments should be avoided during December 2008. In total, the Lord of your rasi Budha (mercury) will be helpful to you. Prayer in lord Mahavishnu temple will be good for you.

Virchiga
Lord Saturn’s arrival to 10th house of Virchiga is giving two ways of predictions. One is occupation of a malefic in 10th is good for business, profession and education. The other one is decrease in happiness and as well as the privacy with life mate. The pleasure is less but the labour is more. Because of the labour the income will also flow much. The conjunction of Bhagawan Saturn and Kedu during September and October will cause one litigation or opposition in the project.

The interim accommodation of Bhagawan Saturn and Jupiter will be giving unknown fear or unexpected crisis in finance, property or health. So, you have to observe the circumstances now itself and have a vigil to face it diplomatically. Jupiter during November 2007 to November 2008 will be giving a shape inside the family which is arguing now with duty and finance. Duty is most important; you have to give the first preference to duty. Worship to Lord Karthikeya on “visaga” or on kritika (star-days) should be done with your Jenma Nakshatra by means of archana.

It is forecasting to keep you in a steady and balanced way. The conjunction of Saturn and Kedu will give certain negative aspects in your belongings. Those who are born between elder and younger, have to be cautious in all matters. The position of paternal grace and the offerings are reaching at a low degree. The situations are paralleled by Jupiter who guides to be the negotiator and concludes the situation; suitably Saturn’s transit will be certainly giving the changes.

Magaram
Bhagawan Sani to 8th place of your rasi Magaram is inauspicious. The natives are advised to be very careful in all the activities. The sufferings by way of losses are also expected. The remedy for this is to worship Bhagawan Sani every week on Saturday. Be careful in conversations and reducing the loose talks will be good. The conjunction of Baghawan Sani with Baghawan Kedu occurs during September and October. These two months will be crucial. Make your plans and projects with care and thorough. Speeding up will cause failure. Further 2 ½ years, the hard lessons are to be followed. But it is good as then only the learning about the world and gaining knowledge and experiences are possible.

This house also tells the fortune. Bhagawan Sani is “mandha” means slow, dull, and even lazy. Since, the seventh square is a place to give all kinds of attack, accident, losses of energy and ill health, when he arrives here you may feel extra eagerness, especially in your family life. The occupant Bhagawan Kedu in conjunction with Sani Bhagawan will create an inconvenience and make you to feel deserted. July, August and September are the months to be in extra vigil in all activities. During November, December and January 08, the matters will be with extra profits and gains. The train positions of Jupiter and Guru respectively in Dhanur and Simham will cause an excitement, which will be felt on account of your head of family or power or finance. This kind of status quo shall also be in the spouse side. The mantra is to worship Bhagawan Sani and to do the Jenma Nakshatra Archana for Navagraha, which will be giving the required relief.

Meenam
Bhaghawan Sani is moving to Simham that is the sixth house from your Rasi. The malefic planets shall go and hide in 6th place. This rule is suitably accepted for your rasi. You will feel better and the improvements will begin gradually and the success will also follow for continuous 2 ½ years. The conjunction of Bhagawan Kedu and Bhagawan Sani occurs during September and October. Since, it is professional house to your paternal side; the elders are going to be affected in finance and power. The transit of Baghawan Jupiter is occurring during November. He reaches to the 10th House of your star. So, you may see a change in trade, profession, education and job related tasks. To be precise, you may go through a wobbling situation. Determination of mind and the suitable plans should be followed by the natives. The same will continue for a full year from November. Even though the transit of Bhagawan Saturn is not affecting much, it’s just a hindrance to the scene. So the pooja or prayer for Bhagawan Prahaspathi (Jupiter) is must needed, which will give support and improvements to avoid any obstacles.

Now, a boy of age eleven came to the stage and objected the decision of the seven judges and pleaded to give him a chance to submit his opinions. One of the judges asked him “Who are you to object our decision?”. The boy told the furious judges in a polite manner “Sir, I am the person who submitted the other picture which you have rejected from awarding the prize”. Judge laughed and told “You saw how the bird mistook the fruits on the other painting as real fruits and tried to pierce it”. “Yes my learned judges, thank you for your explanation on the real fruit which means the mark was given to the reality”. “Of course in the same sense only, we granted the prize to other boy”, commented the judges. “Sorry to interfere sir, but could you please repeat the title you have allotted for this competition?”, the 11-year old boy asked. “A woman fruit seller with basket of fruits and a stick”, one of the judges instantly replied.

Contrary to the sequence, one of the seven judges commented “a sensible argument to be considered. What more do you want to tell, my dear boy?” “Sir I am confident and sure my painting is closer to the reality” continued the boy, “in my painting the woman with a stick appeared so real that the bird realized, it would get a beating with the stick if it came closer.” The arguing judge claimed to prove the boy’s sense of reality. The boy screenedthe portion of the woman and the stick on the painting with a white cloth, and kept the painting at the same place when it was tested. After about 15 minutes, some birds flew over the area. Seeing the painting, they flew near the painting and started piercing the fruits. While it looked strange and miraculous, the boy’s confidenin in his art and proper concentration was praised by all the judges.

Step 3: Now, open the sheet out flat and make a second one exactly like it but of a different colour. Step 4: Stick the two sheets together by dabbing some adhesive on the corners. Step 5: Now, gently draw out the paper by pulling at the centre of both sides. You will have a nice chain. Make a dozen of these and you can hang them all over.

Destroy the bad through bad (Atharma by the Atharma) - Sri Selvam “Siddhar”

Description of Jnani: Lord Krishna himself Explain the Importance of AtmaJnan to Arjuna in Ch-2 Vers. 46. Lord Krishna says “To the Atma-Jnani who has known the self (Pure soul) Vedas are of so much use, as a reservoir of water is when there is flood everywhere. Replying Arjuna’s query of how to distinguish a jnani amidst others, Lord Krishna says “ Jnani is satisfied in the Self ( Atma), he is not shaken by misery or elated by prosperity. He does not hanker after pleasure, is free from attachment, fear and anger and is not affected by any circumstances. Such a person of true wisdom is exceedingly dear to me I consider Jnani as my own self, he is established in me Alone (Atma, inner self) as the supreme. Such a Jnani is very hard to find.” Swami Vivekanada, also refers to the Jnani as one who accepts himself only as a Pure Soul ( Atma) and reject the notion of himself as the body and mind. Swami Chinmayanada in his lectures on Holy Geeta , says Jnani is the one who has identified himself with God. Swami Prabhupad in his commentary on Holy Geeta , says Krishna and Jnani are one. ( Ch-7 Vers 18) Lord Krishna in Geeta says, “ Atma (Self, He) is superior to sense, body, mind and intellect thus know you’re your own self (Atma) (Geeta , Ch-3 Vers-42-43). He further says “ I am in all living creatures”, what is there which common in all living creature ? Atma is the only thing is common in all living creatures. Hence Atma itself is God ( Parmatma). ( Geeta Ch.-15, Vers-15). That is why Atma-Jnan is so important to awaken the hidden Parmatma within us. And enlighten us on the Very nature of Our Self. How do I meet Jnani? How do I find him ? Jnani will never tell that he is an Enlightened Soul---he is beyond words, attachments, likes, dislikes and is egoless. It is always through a Nimmitha that the world comes to know of the jnani. Arjuna was the Nimmittha for us to know Lord Krishna as the jnani. Lord Krishna had 100 Yadava and 5 Pandawas as his cousin brothers but no one could recognize him as Jnani until, Arjuna became depressed, surrendered his ego to Him and says I don’t know anything, please help me. Such a Jnani was there in recent past, His name was A. M. Patel, He experienced the Enlightened Sate---Atma –Jnan in a natural, ordinary setting at the Surat Railway station in 1958 At that moment, he could see how the entire cosmos functions, and at the same time see within himself the Pure Soul --the Light within , totally separate from the body. The experience continued and he saw the same light in all the living creatures The enlightened Pure Soul(Shud Atma) in A. M. Patel is called “ Dada Bhagvan”, The same Pure Soul ( Dada Bhagvan ) is in all living creatures. He was above all attachments after the Gnyan experience and what was left was his functional ego and the karmas that had to be discharged in the remaining years of his life. For 4 years he did not tell anyone that he had such an experience and was privy to

this Jewel of Gynan.. One of his relatives Chandrakant Patel, noticed a spiritual change in A. M. Patel and through his frequent visits and Satsang (one to one) with Dada Bhagwan came to know Dada.s depth of knowledge and his True Dasha (State Of Being) . Chandrakanth finally surrendered his ego at Dadas feet and said “ Give me Gynan, you are a jnani”. Since then gradually during the course of time, people came to know of Dada and many from Gujarat and other places came to Dada to be initiated in Atma Gynan. Dada first came to the US in 1982 and four times in the successive years before he. took Maha-Samadhi in Jan. 1988. in Vadodara, India. After his Maha-Samadhi, jnani Purush Kanubhai Patel whom. Dada gave Gynan in 1963 and told h im that after me you will be giving Gynan and initiating the seekers of Atma Gynan. Shri Kanu Dada is now the living jnani Purush. Dada Bhagwan used to say every one speaks my language but Chadrakantbhai and Kanubhai speak their own spiritual language and I also listen to them. They are highly developed souls. Kanu Dada as he is currently known comes on a spiritual tour to USA, , U.K. and Germany. He always travels extensively all over India to initiate seekers of Atma Gynan and to conduct Satsang . . What Jnani can do? Jnani can take away the ego, because he is in the egoless state. Once the ego is gone, the receiver of the Gynan will be aware when he is doing his routine chores that in Truth he is the Non-Doer. This initiation and awareness within him, gradually blossoms and over time, it gets firm inside together with the Right belief that in Reality He or She is the Pure Self Illuminating light, knower and perceiver only and not the doer. At the same time he also starts to see the Pure Soul in everyone around him including all living creatures, Seeing the Pure Self in all , naturally leads to not looking at others faults and be judgemental. All this working together, with total surrender of the ego and mind , speech and body to the feet of the jnani(internally)., the currect understanding of how the soul journeys towards its ultimate destination, how to avoid pitfalls on the way which is given in the Satsangs (the Satsangs also teaches how to conduct our day to day life—Shudh Vyavahar) releases one from the accumulation of new karmas in this life (since the doership is renounced internally). Whatever Karma were there before Gynan has to be lived out in a few more births and after that the soul is liberated once and and for all ---Moksha. . There is NO return if one truly understands and lives according to the teachings of the jnani Purush. jnani breaks the wrong belief that I am so and so, Mr, Mrs. Miss so and so and he sets up within us (internally the Right Belief which is “I am the Pure Soul “ which in reality is the true , infinite Happiness, infinitely Bliss (Sat Chit Anand). The essence of the Isha Upanishad is along the lines that God Pervades everything and therefore whatsoever happens is for the common good only in the true sense. When one recognizes this subtle and deep truth hidden even amidst all the ups and

downs in ones life, the inner strength and the correct vision dawns and starts f u n c t i o n i n g internally even without our knowing so in our life. Lord Krishna broke Arjuna’s wrong belief that I am Arjuna and set up the right belief in its place that I am the Pure Soul. That is in short the Geeta Gynan. What is Moksha ? Moksha is not a destination to reach as is commonly believed. It is the awakening and dawning of our true identity which culminates in total freedom from all types of bondage The bondage which we accumulate and perpetuate in our life with our ego results in the repeated birth and death of the physical body to dispense the Karmas(papas and punyas).that we have brought upon ourselves in previous births. Paradoxically while we dispense our past karmas, we also accumulate new karmas due to our wrong belief that we are the doer and our mind, intellect and ego endorse all our actions as “ours” which bears the consequence of repeated births. Atma Gynan imparts that Knowledge and Right Belief that leads to freedom from our actions even in this very life. It changes our understanding completely and that knowledge becomes the guiding light for the remainder of this life and the lives to come. Jnani is one who has reached the level of Atman and who is able to see God in every living creature Jnani is one who is above, pleasure and pain, like and dislike, happiness and sorrow. He will explain what is God, what is Karma, how does this world works, how to get absolute freedom from all Karmic Bondage.etc
Is there any rule or any requirement for having Atman gynan? No there are no rules at all, Jnani never tells do this or that or don’t do that. He never tells, give up this and accept that, He never tells anyone to give up his or her religious belief. Atma gynan is a Vision, the vision Arjuna got from Krishna. The Only requirement is readiness to submit your ego and the firm conviction that I don’t know anything ( like Arjuna said to Krishna “ I don’t know anything” ) Special Note: This Article was writen solely due to the Divine Grace of Jnani Purush Kanudadaji. What Lord –Krishna was to Arjuna , Kanudadaji is to me .He gave me the same Knowledge and Vision through his Divine grace.

utilized in the pillar is with the “therai” (A small creature) inside the rock. So, on any day damage could occur to the building”. Protesting this statement, Mayan asked Nayanar to prove the matter immediately. Nayanar went to his house and brought the sandal wood powder duly mixed with water and some herbs. He began to paste it on the suspected pillar. To the astonishment the liquid with sandle pasted on pillar was getting dry. But in one spot, the dryness was not spread, it was still wet. Nayanar declared that the suspected creature ‘therai’ is alive very close to the spot which was wet. Then he bravely went and brought the tools to break the spot with a chisel and songht the King’s permission. temple town called Perur near Coimbatore in South India is a famous place of worship to Lord Shiva. During the time of construction of the temple there arose a conflict. Sirpi Nayanar (A young sculptor) was an expert in installing the Pillars to the temple. Another, head sculptor who was in charge to select the rocks from quarry was called Maayan. He brought the rocks from a distante place and some of the cut rocks were in big size. Quarry was the place where from the stones of big sizes were brought to the construction of temple.

A

King allowed him to do. Yes it was a small creature like frog which came out of the stone, which was constructed as pillar. King praised the efficiency of Nayanar and gave a gift purse of gold coins to him. The arrangement to remove the pillar was also ordered and the defect was rectified.

King told to the gathering “The heart beat of any living being does not start on the moment of birth, but started already inside the womb. Like the same, sculptor Nayanar is blessed by this godliness to read the art of nature from his teacher and proved a creature was is inside the rock. Let us construct and worship Since there were many workers doing the jobs, Nayanar the Lord Patteshwara who will give us the blessings and show was attending to the work of allotment. The King of region the successful path”. Vellimalayan came to look at the progress of work. The work Lord Patteshwarn is worshipped by thousands and the place in was developing to finish the level of roof. The king found the a -great pilgrim centre. talents of Nayanar and asked him to create the main idol of Lord Patteshwara. The other senior sculptures felt that the decision of king was a shameful affair for their talents and that they requested the king to test their abilities and sanction the job of sculturing the main shrine. In order to determine and eghibt the talents of Nayanar called him and ordered to go around the temple and if he could any defects in construction, he should reveal the defect. This test was giving great happiness for other sculptors. After a while, Nayanar came and reported that the first one pillar which was installed in the main auditorium (Prayer Hall) was with defect. King asked the leader Maayan about this and Maayan replied with bold no and contested the issue. King enquired Nayanar to explain in detail about the defect, Nayanar told “My respectable king!

Transit of Saturn and the Human Body Swamiji Sri Selvam “Siddhar” explained about Anga sani. Every one has their birth star. The account of Angasani is to be determined from the birth star. “Anga” or “Angam” means parts of body. The transit of Saturn is occurring on 15th July 07, Sunday. So the study of this subject is a topic to one and all.From the study of the stars, it is elaborately formulated to understand the parts which are governed by Saturn from the date of transit.The detail with example, the star ‘Maga’ to which Saturn reaches on 15th July, we can calculate what are the other stars, which are ruled by Saturn in relation with the parts of body of the native Magam.

E

very living human being should understand and be aware of True Self, Buddhi, Atma, Soul and Wisdom. When a person is alive, it is known that the life exists in his/her body. The life here is understandable as a living body. If the living is not doing its action, it is a ‘lying’ body which is same as dead body. The destiny of any birth is death. The life, atma and soul represent the spirit which rules the body for living. In a life, one can live either good or bad. If he is good, the person is called good atma, if he is bad then bad atma. Spirit also can be either a good spirit or evil spirit. Somebody or something should ‘train’ this atma or life or soul to be good for ever? Agree? If the practice is done properly, the bad can be totally avoided. It’s the duties of elders in the family to give appropriate teaching to the children who will gain this knowledge and be aware of fixing their mind for a proper life with norms of justice. As these are related to one’s soul, I would take the real experiences and observations for research, which were guiding the Saint Ramana, to attain the wisdom. In the life of famous Saint Ramana, an incidence took place. Learned disciples of Saint Ramana have explained that his real name was Venkata Raman who at the age of 16, his eagerness and the curiosity drove him to find the answer for the Self-inquiry “Who am I?”. Every day uncountable birth occurs and uncountable deaths occur in this world. What is the purpose and who initiates or controls this chain of occurrences and “Who am I?” was his self doubt which started as glorious achievement of immortality. Now, one more phrase ‘immortality’ also adds up in our bundle of titles already in the “mind file”. Let us see what actually happened to Saint Ramana at his age of 16. The Great Enlightenment “It was about six weeks before I left Madurai for good, in the middle of the year 1896, that the great change in my life took place” said Sri Ramana Maharshi, when asked by devotees as to how he was transformed, “It was so sudden. One day I sat up alone on the first floor of my uncle’s house. I was in my usual good health. But a sudden and unmistakable fear of death seized me. I felt I was going to die and at once started about thinking as to what I should do. I did not care to consult anyone, be he a doctor, elder or friend. I felt I had to solve the problem myself then and there. The shock of the fear of death made me at once introspective or ‘introverted’. I said to myself mentally, ‘Now that death is come, what does it mean? Who is it that is dying? This body dies’. I at once dramatized the situation. I extended my limbs and held them rigid as though rigor mortis had set in. I imitated a

corpse to lend an air of reality to my further investigation. I held my breath and kept my mouth closed, pressing the lips tightly together, so that no sound could escape. ‘Well then’ I said to myself, ‘this body is dead. It will be carried to the crematory and there burnt and reduced to ashes. But with the death of my body, am I dead? Is the body I? This body is silent and inert. But I am still aware of the full force of my personality and even of the sound of I within myself as apart from the body. The material body dies, but the Spirit transcending it cannot be touched by death. I am therefore the deathless Spirit’. All this was not a feat of intellectual gymnastics, but came as a flash before me vividly as living Truth, which I perceived immediately, without any argument almost. I was something very real; the only real thing in that state, and all the conscious activity that was connected with my body was centered on that. The I or myself was holding the focus of attention with a powerful fascination. Fear of death vanished at once and for ever. The absorption in the Self has continued from that moment right up to now”. After this incident, there was a complete change in the young sage’s life. The things that he had valued earlier now lost their value. He reached Thiruvannamalai, then called as Arunachala, the place considered as the dwelling place of Lord Shiva (Hindu deity and the Almighty). Saint Ramana was troubled by little boys who threw stones at him as he sat in meditation. He shifted himself to obscure corners and even to an underground place known as Patala-lingam and continued his meditation. His aim to get wisdom --deepened. After 30 years of his Mouna Vratha (meditation of silence), became Gnani. He had thousands and thousands of followers. The teachings were most notable, attractive and appreciable to the people all over the world.

Botanical name: Cocos nucifera English name: Coconut Hindi name: Nariyal Sanskrit name: Narikela Tamil name: Thenkai Coconut water is one of the most delicious natural thirst quenchers in the world. Coconut water is the liquid endosperm inside young coconuts. As the coconut matures this liquid largely becomes absorbed into the flesh found in mature coconuts. Coconut water has long been a popular drink in the tropics. It is naturally fat-free and low in food energy (16.7 calories or 70 kJ per 100 g). Coconuts for drinking are packaged and sold in many places. These are typically Thai coconuts whose outer green husk has been removed, and the remainder wrapped in plastic. Coconut water can also be found in regular cans or tetra paks (and often has coconut pulp or coconut jelly added) and is also marketed as a sports drink because of its high potassium and mineral content which helps the body recover from rigorous exercise. Why drink Coconut Water            Coconut Water is more nutritious than whole milk - Less fat and NO cholesterol! Coconut Water is healthier than Orange Juice - Much lower calories. Coconut Water is better than processed baby milk- It contains lauric acid, which is present in mother’s milk Coconut water is naturally sterile -- Water permeates though the filtering husk! Coconut water is a universal donor-- Its identical to human blood plasma Coconut Water is a natural Isotonic Beverage - The same level we have in our blood. Coconut water has saved lives in 3rd world countries thru Coconut IV. Coconut water contains more potassium (at about 294 mg) than most sports drinks (117 mg) and most energy drinks*. Coconut water has less sodium (25 mg) where sports drinks have around 41 mg and energy drinks have about 200 mg*. Coconut water has 5 mg of natural sugars where sports and energy drinks range from 10-25 mg of Altered Sugars*. Coconut water is very high in Chloride at 118 mg, compared to sports drinks at about 39 mg*.

“Coconut water is the very stuff of nature, biologically pure, full of natural sugars, salts, and vitamins to ward off fatigue... and is the next wave of energy drinks BUT natural!”, according to Mortin Satin, Chief of the United Nation’s Food & Agriculture Organization. *Data is based on a 100 ml drink.

Some of his award winning compositions include: “Lagaan”, “Kannathil Muthamittal”, “Bombay”, “Dil Se” “Roja”, “Taal” and “Rang De Basanti” On June 17th, 2007 AR Rahman and his musicians gave a remarkable and an outstanding live performance in Washington DC. Here he swept over 8,000 attendees off their feet. This concert’s promoter was Vijay Taneja of Financial Mortgage Inc. and Re/Max Summit. He condluded the concert with the audience’s standing ovation during his “Vande Mataram”. I, Mandira Nandani Mehra, sat down with the extremely humble AR Rahman Ji, and had the following interview. Mandira Nandani (MN) - AR Rahman ji congratulations on a superb concert. I won’t praise you any further because anything I say would cheapen the experience of your concert. What or who do you owe your success to? AR Rahman (AR) - I owe my success to God, the love of my family and my fans. Because without love you can’t do anything- and that’s the motivation behind me. MN - You’re an icon and idol internationally. You inspire millions globally. Who your inspiration? AR - All good people are inspiration to me, because you need infinite things because you are living a mortal life and you need good nature and art and stuff like that (he smiled). MN - I know this is an unfair question- you have 5 fingers you can’t choose your favorite, similarly, you have many songs and projects- do you have any favorities or specials that touch your heart? AR - I have many, it depends. Last year it was “Luka Chupi” with Tabu sang by Lata Mangeshwar ji, and this year it was “Tere Bina” where all the songs are dedicated to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. MN - One of your first gigs was a coffee jingle. From coffee jingles to your success now, would you go back and change any of your steps along the way? AR - I wouldn’t I think each step was difficult for me, but I try my best to perfect it. Some of them are successful and some of them are not. It’s important to have an intention behind your life and what you are. That comes from within, if you have that intention you can go on with the journey of your life. MN – Many artists I spoke with today owe their success to you. You have brought up many artists and contributed to their success as well as the fact you have given them their first break. They revere you- and listen to you daily. Who do you or listen to on your cd player?

MN - Speaking of modernizing and music- What is your opinion on being able to download music on the internet? AR - The time has come that we can all judge how we are and we should support each other. People are not going to police you and what you are going to do on the net. We’re all grown ups, we all have our own thoughts. What goes around, comes around. What you give is what you get- You give love then you get love. If you download someone’s hard earned stuff then that should be denied. MN - The last concert was titled the “unity of light”. Many of your songs deal with love: a romantic love, love for a child, love gained, love lost and the sorrows and happiness that comes with it. How do you, AR ji, define love? AR - It’s a very good and big question with a very big answer. For me the love for God comes first, he comes first, he created all of us he created love and since I am of Sufi path that is more important and of course because of that, he has commended us to love each other then comes secondary love and then your life is peaceful or you suffer from love too much haha! (he smiles)

AR - I’m surrounded by music, so I usually don’t want to listen to music. But sometimes I want to listen to classical, new people and folk music. You tube is now blessing us (he laughs) and sometimes I listen “rad jams” there.

MN - You’re an international success and an icon figure- I can tell from your many concerts there is so much happening here (pointing to mind) and here (pointing to heart). You have amazing focus and have accomplished more then one can comprehend. With so much success now what do you wish to accomplish?

The

giant king kamsa, was walking fastly into the corridors of palace. His face was filled with ferociousness. He entered the court hall. All his ministers and warriors were raising up from their positions and greeted him with regards. He went and sat on the throne. He called his minister, and wanted him to make an another attempt to attack the Brindavan the palace and the land of Nandagoba. Last time when, Boothana made her attempt to kill the infant child Krishna met with great failure.Boothana the great and valiant friend of him was destroyed by infant Krishna while sucking the milk from the breasts of boothana, the infant Krishna sucked all the strength and the life of her. This time, the planning was different, the considerable time also passed; the infant Krishna grown up as a small boy.So,it was a plan to destroy

the boy through other means.Kamsa made up his mind to call “ Sakadasura” who was also an uncomparable fighter. The thought of his calling by his giantic power, brought ‘Sakadasura’infront of him. ‘Sakadasura’was pleased to meet ‘Kamsa’and asked the purpose for which he was called.kamsa explained about a little boy dwelling in Brindavan and his extraordinary power killed ‘Boothana’and so, with great power and trick, this time, the target to attack the boy should be plann-ed. “Sakadasura” laughed with astonishment and asked “after all a little boy that too, with out knowing the usage of weapon or supersticious power it could never be possible to reattack us. king kamsa ordered him to start for Brindavan and destroy the little boy Krishna to pieces “sakadasura”vanished as a whirl wind and appeared as a big giant at the territory of Nandagoba.

with other boys, in the open play ground. The entrance of “Sakadasura”commenced at a distance away. The magnanimous and mighty “Sakadasura” turned immediately as a big wheel of a charriot which came down with full speed. All the stones, rocks, and trees were smashed into pieces. The speed was such and it was nearing the little Krishna. By the quick moments Krishna under- stood the situation and sending away the other boys for safer distance, he raised his right leg up. It grew and grew as bigger before the wheel. The giant in such a gigantic power and force came in form of wheel dashed with the foot of Krishna who was mightier than the enemy and his divine power of strength acted to give end to the giant. The wheel was powdered by the force raised by Krishna. After a while, the corpse of “Sakadasura was “found scattered into pieces on the ground and there was no charriot wheel at all. The dust raising land and the abnormal sounds like thunders, when “Sakadasura” came there turned as a place of calm ground of playing. The mother Yasotha and all the village people gathered there. She ran closer to Krishna with great fear as she thought some seriousness could have affected her child. Krishna with his beautiful smile embraced his mother. She brought the child to

palace and asked her friends to do the rituals and pooja, so that her child could recover from any attack and shock. She was just a human mother; it was quite natural she did, her caressing and affections of her child. Yashodha was to have Krishna an child!

Shooting Stars
It’
s a good practice to look at the sky during the moonless night to develop the capacity of vision. Those who attend computer works, cine projectors, and writing will be getting good benefits by this exercise. The ‘Shooting Stars’ are meteors which are often seen in the night sky. It is visible just one or two seconds as it is a traveling star with great speed. Then, it vanishes after the show. These meteors contain iron and few other metals. The floating meteors when happen to cross or enter the zone of the outer space of earth, they are burnt automatically. This fire incidence, when the meteor destroyed sparks as bright flares. This is called as Shooting Stars. There are three types of astronomical names. They are Meteors, Meteorites, and Meteoroids. On 20th June 1996, a village in Rajasthan, India happened to secure a meteor weighing 20KiloGrams. It was a belief that the object could have come from orbits of Mars. In the belt of asteroids there are lots of rocky objects which can not be seen through naked eyes. About two hundred years back an object with the largest size of 900 Kilometers in diameter was noticed and then named as “Ceres.” About sixteen years back, a smallest one, of size nine meters was also found. With all the protection by nature, the earth is circling round the Sun. Every day many happenings are occurring in the sky. The Meteoroids are of major, iron contents, which come into the orbit belt of Earth and create wonders. Just imagine if they are free to give destruction to homes and towns on earth; what would become of us? The almighty has given the “Kavasha” the protection to earth which has its speed, gravitational region, and the atmospherc zone which will have the potentiality to resist such entrances and save the earth. Rare incidences are registered all around the world about the falling of Meteors on earth. That gives the caution “any thing could happen”. About 12 years back, the planet Jupiter was attacked by a big Meteor from a comet, which was coming closer to Jupiter and entered the surface of Jupiter, this clash made damage for more than thousand miles. The Astronomers from the earth watched the incidence and registered the success of their fore-telling. The matter of reference to tell these incidences under the title Shooting Stars does not connect to any war between stars or any collision between worlds. The earth has got it’s protectional region which our forefathers named as “Kavasha.” Even the satellite voyage and returning from space stations, the crafts are not reaching the earth straight away. They have to make the influence with the region of “Kavasha” by circling around the earth step by step. Then only, the safe-landings are possible. All we have to bear in mind is the same proverbs that “One who is above to us, looks every thing and decides every thing.”

Tell before God “with out you, I am no where” then God takes you to his possession then you are also God! Purify yourself that is the theme. - Sri Selvam Siddhar

Many episodes in the scriptures and puranas depict the devotees rendering bakthi to the Divine in their conceived forms. But the basic tenets of bakthi – resolute faith, sincerity and steadfastness – reigned supreme. Lord Krishna reiterated these tenets in Bhagavad-Gita. (Ch:12-Bakthi Yogam) Sakthi is energy in simpler terms and power in a greater term. Matter without energy is of little use. Scriptures describe the status of matter as “Chethana and achethana”,. Sivam (the Supreme matter) combined with Sakthi (the supreme power) pervades the world. One of the six forms of worship enunciated by the Aryans was Saktham- Worship of the Divine in feminine form. For any movement, energy is required. The supreme Sakthi energizes the world. Scriptures describe Sakthi as of three kinds – Icha Sakthi, Kriya Sakthi and Gnana Sakthi. Icha Sakthi is the energy that creates and motivates the desire (Icha). Kriya Sakthi is the energy that is required to do and act (kriya) as per the motives and desires. Gnana Sakthi is the energy required for the achievement and culmination or the fruition with utmost wisdom and profundity of knowledge (Jnana). For any great

- An Overview By NAGARATHNAM akthi is devotion. The term usually refers to the devotion by a lesser being to the higher one. Thus we have Mathru Bakthi, Pitru Bakthi, Guru Bakthi and Divine Bakthi representing devotion to Mother, Father, Guru and Almighty respectively. The level and kind of bakthi is of varying degree. In mathru bakthi, there is a mixture of affection and endearment. In Pithru bakthi, the mixture of entitlement and efficacy is more pronounced. In Guru bakthi, the mixture of reverence and abdication is keenly felt. And in Divine bakthi, all these and much more form the mixture with devotion! Divine bakthi should be pure and unadulterated. Rituals alone do not form bakthi. They are only tools in the process. Prayer is a means to reach the stage of bakthi. Faith and sincerity are the essentials of prayer. A perfect understanding and concentration in what we do form the basics of proper prayer. Repetitive sincere prayers are borne out of bakthi on one hand and on the other hand go towards increasing the level of bakthi in one’s self.. You can pray and worship the Divine in any form. The great Nayanmars and Alwars expressed their bakthi in different formats and also by singing the praise of the Lord in various ways. The bakthi of various saints was of different type. Meera Bai and Andal had the ardent bakthi and longed to be in unison with the Lord. The rustic hunter, Kannappa Nayanar, adored the Lingam as a living being and offered his eyes, one after the other, when he found trace of blood on the face of the Lingam. For Nandanar, the very sight of the temple tower of Chidambaram evoked great ecstasy before entering into the temple. For Arjuna the Lord was a relative, driver, friend, philosopher and guide. For Bhadrachal Ramadas’ bakthiful lamentations, Lord Rama presented himself before the Sultan. Thyagaraja’s soulful musical renderings on Lord Rama reverberate among the hills and dales of South India.

action the combination of the three is a desideratum. Sakthi is worshipped in various feminine forms – as Lakshmi (Goddess of wealth), Saraswathi (of learning), Durga (of destroyer of evils), Parasakthi (of great all powerful and kind protector) and different manifestations. From time immemorial Sakthi is worshipped both with awe and love! There are eighteen sakthi peetas – where the power of Sakthi is with added concentration – spread over in a few states in India, each with its own legend,. Each one has distinctive features and a hoary past. There is not a single village in India without a temple of Devi. Siddhi in simple terms is achievement and in broader terms attainment of perfection or the ultimate. Siddhi is the pinnacle reached by unadulterated Bakthi and acquisition of Sakthi. Without bakthi and sakthi, Siddhi cannot be perceived. Practicing an ardent life with devotion and strict adherence to the norms, regulations and mantras set out in the Atharva Veda to reach the stage of Siddhi, one becomes a Siddha Purusha or Siddha. There are eight types of Siddhis called “Ashta Ma Siddhis”. They are Anima, Mahima, Lahima, Karima, Porpthi, Vasithvam, prakathmiyam and Ishathvam. The Siddhas who practice different pursuits with specialization can perform unimaginable acts like walking on the river water, get buried in earth for a number of days, raising above the ground level with movement of limbs, converting things to metals, getting into others’ body (Jala Sthambanam, Bhoo Sthambanam,

Vayu Sthambanam, Rasa Vadam, Para Kaya Pravesam) talking to birds and beasts, talking to the dead etc. Another branch of siddha activity is the siddha system of medicine specifying certain natural ways of life and medicines made of simple herbal ingredients of effective cure of all ailments, which is acclaimed as one of the best systems all over the world. There are only a few siddhas who practice techniques relevant to the present day situations of the family life, influence of bad spirits in one’s life, different types of doshams or evil influence of planets, black magic mental agony and other such problems. In olden days there were several Rishis (sages) who became Siddhas. Of these eighteen Siddhas (“Pathinenn Siddhars”) were notable for different kinds of siddha activities. Some were prominent like Kapila, Bhogar and Akasthiyar. Mention of Siddha is made even in Bhagavat-Gita and the Lord says “I am Kapila among Siddhas” (Ch: 10-26. Vibuthi yogam). Some Siddhas had setup separate “Peetams” (foundations) to perpetuate the lineage. Contrary to public belief, a siddha is not one who renounced the world (Sanyasi) but one who leads a normal life in the world, utilizing his knowledge and powers to alleviate the sufferings of the people to the extent possible. He is a living being, your next door neighbour. He is a person with ordinary looks, but of course, one with some extraordinary abilities! Let Bakthi and Sakthi join hands with Siddhi in an effort towards making the world a better place to live!

fter the birth of a child in the world, the habits and behaviors are inculcated in them gradually. The duty of the mother is most important in bringing up the child. The entire future depends upon molding of the child in the early child hood. The nature permits the change of seasons from child hood to a stage of grown up boy or girl hood and then comes the youthful personality. This particular stage is going to be acknowledged as adult. The mind and activities at this age will be with fast tendencies and quick decisions. The life is there to live up to old age of 70, 80. The modern fashions, customs, and opportunities are drawn towards attractions. The variations between affectionate and passionate could not be observed by the youngsters. Fashions and fascinations are capturing the minds of youths. Prone to passion is passionate. Affection, in a good subject with good will in its purity is love. This one can not get in strange occasions or events. One has to know where to apply what and when and how. The prime youth are like spring time scholars. The age and the circumstances will be attracting them for fun activities and searching for a friend of other sex. The variation of these unknown destinations of desires dominates their mind. In this search, they may go through lot of failures which may lead them to “the failure to be stable”. Lack of Self control causes the issues. They should realize the principles and aims which may equalize and help them to reach to their expectations. The outwardly appearances for the suitability is not necessary. What is the thirst of one? Will it be to the norms of long standing lives? One should also check the adjustments and flexibilities to move with, for their better future ahead. Before they realize the hasty decisions and speedy movements lead to a state of

Siddhi Times USA 58

dissatisfaction. Life is not chained with tests as it is bound to settle with happiness. Testing every time with out an aim will ruin the life of one. Good under standing and the observations of behaviors are most important to have a friend either of same sex or of other. Passion is lesser to the rank of love. Some times the friend ship with other sex proves fertile and leads to the marriage and they continue happy living. It’s usually lesser than 8 out of 100 people. Most of the relationships end up as failure. So, the real love is real far away. No one should fall as victims and lose their future. In true life it is rare to get success as intellectual friendship is graded first. In the divine land a most beautiful pair, Manmatha and Rathi were determined as the best couple. Manmatha, the epics call him as “Cupid” (God of love), a personality of a masculine finest beauty. ‘Rathi, is also compared as the top most among women. They were living very happily. Their divine powers permitted here zto go to any place, mountains, rivers and skies. Manmatha was having a Sugar cane bow and lotus as arrow. The epics describe the bow with great meanings. Sugar Cane Bow: The people in all over the world and the divines in divine land are eager to have the sweetness. The plant sugar-cane gives the best form of sweetness. It is explained that the sugar cane is bottom side of the plant will be with more sweetness. The flower of sugar cane comes from top side of the plant. From far, it looks like a huge gathering of furs and silky feathers and its more than 2 feet tall. You can observe some tints like rainbow

too. Altogether it is a very pleasant and a beautiful show.
In this explanation, what are the essentialities to understand?

Sugar cane is a thick stem with full of juice. The top side of sugar cane is not used as it’s not sweet. Manmatha and Rathi are like this juice with full happiness. They appear near sea and dance on the sand. As ‘Manmatha’ encircle his hands around the waist of ‘Rathi’, the dance continues on rivers, mountains and gardens. They find happiness, joy and enjoyment everywhere. Why lotus flower is used for an arrow? While the masculine nature is that of sugar cane, the feminine nature is that of flower. Women yields to the need of a man and very flexible and curve to the expectation of the husband. Lotus is very beautiful with full of attraction. The stem (Core) of the Lotus comes from the bottom of a pond or lake. It’s hollow in the middle. The stem projects above the level of water to get the oxygen needed for survival. The women, by nature very soft, begin to live with man, like an oxygen supplier. Such relations are must for the mankind. Manmatha was doing his duties for his guru “Sukhra Acharya”. The lives on earth, the creations, reptiles, fishes, animals and human being were all multiplied only on the orders of Sukhra Acharya. He was the authority for love and relations and the cause for child birth. He even controlled the creation of flowers and plants. Sukra Acharya is a ruling deity of the planet Venus. He creates desires, eagerness and passion. So, the real match with ‘Rathi” is a boon to Manmatha. It’s always said that any couple should

Siddhi Times USA 59

Be like “Rathi and Manmatha”, made for each other. One day, when they were playing in garden, the game of hide and seek, Rathi with her supremacy vanished in clouds towards north. Manmatha began to search her and went up to Kailash. He was very tired and upset while he saw Lord Shiva in meditation. Manmatha asked himself why Lord Shiva should meditate without spending time with Umadevi (Lord Shiva’s wife) and aimed a lotus flower arrow, which fell on the head of Lord Shiva. HE was disturbed from his sacred doings of meditation and opened his third eye which was meant for the flames of fire for destruction. The pitiable ‘Manmatha’ was destroyed to ashes. The fun game gave a fate of destruction for Manmatha. Rathi, after a long while, could not see her husband but by her soul power she under stood what had happened. She went to Kailash and fell on the feet of Lord Shiva. She cried as she lost her husband and her life of everlasting love. Realizing what her husband had done, she begged the Lord. “Oh Lord Chandra Sekara, your Lord ship are the kindest of all the kindest. Your Lord ship has given asylum to Shree Chandra up on your head! My humble husband unknowingly has done this sin. Oh Lord! Grace me to live with my husband.” Her plea was accepted by the Lord and granted the life to Manmatha who fell at the feet of Lord Shiva. Thus the lost life of Rathi and Manmatha continues still.

here are many islands in the Pacific Ocean. One among them is “Hawaii”, the most beautiful and exotic tropical island on earth. In each of the islands, there was a ruler or leader who used to govern that Island. Hawaii had two rulers. One is a male whose name was ‘Kavo’, the elder brother and the other ruler was ‘Kela’, sister of Kavo. Since the Island was surrounded by the vast sea, all the people living there were well experienced in swimming. They make their own “Surf – Board” which was helpful to go into the deep ocean. The edges of the “Surf-Board” had the sloping shape. For the out look, Surf Board was spacious enough to one who can even sleep on that. Through the help of Surf board, the ruler Kela used to swim and enter into the deep sea and come back to the island. No one in the island had the swimming skill as that of Kela. Her brother Kavo used to say “Kela would have been born as mermaid of sea”. Some among the skillful swimmers used to fold their legs and sit on the board while on voyage in the sea. Very few swimmers used to even stand on board, while they get into sea and venture. When the ruler ‘Kela’ grew up, her brother ‘Kavo’ had the thought of marriage for his sister. But ‘Kela’ gave a condition. That condition was that one who wishes to marry her should have the skill of surf board and he should defeat her in the swimming competition. In another Island nearby called “MAI” lived a ruler called “Loloal”. In the life of Loloal, a tragedy took place. He whole heartedly loved a girl of his Island. He used to play with her in the sea. It was usual to go into the sea with surf board. Loloal and his lover girl entered into the sea one day. Unfortunately on that day a storm attacked their balance. In that accident Loloal lost his lover girl. Even after two years, Loloal could not realize himself from the shock. But the people of the land reminded him and compelled him to get married soon. Then Loloal made a visit to ‘Hawaii’. In ‘Hawaii where all the youngsters had failed to win the ‘surf board’ competition with the ruler ‘Kela’, her marriage was also getting postponed. The prince Loloal had come to know about this and decided to compete with her. The competition took place. Fortunately Loloal had won the match. The brother of Kela arranged the marriage for both of them and they got married. After the marriage, Loloal told Kela, all his memories. In that events he told about his lover girl and times with the surf board into the deep sea and also the incident of accident. Loloal requested his wife ‘Kela’ to come to his Island “MAI” where there was a place surrounded by mountains. He suggested further that there was an old fort for a comfortable living. But Kela denied her husband’s request, because she loved the sea of ‘Hawaii’ very much and their family life was also good. After some years they had one child and become parents of few more children later. Since the years passed Loloal had forgotten his lover girl who died in the sea. So in “Hawaii” itself Loloal had built a new palace near the ocean and lived happily, with the family.

Most of the Hindu Temples of very famous for Group politics. We came to this great Nation not with a view, either for money or for better living. No one is superior to God. Being a president of some Temple or community organization doesn’t mean that he is the God. - Sri Selvam “Siddhar” Siddhi Times USA 63

Aum Namashivaya!

Salutation to the feet of the Guru Sri Dakshinamurthi, who sees within himself the entire universe, which resembles the image of a city in a mirror, which appears to be outside him just as objects seen in a dream are outside the dreamer, but which merges into himself in the state of Realization – for then he sees the Self alone, just as the awakened dreamer sees himself alone and not the objects he dreamt. (Dakshinamurthi Stotra)

the path to Spirituality…
shared by our forefathers (GURUS) like Ramana Maharishi and Swami Vivekananda. Guru or a Master: Firstly, Guru means dispeller of darkness (of ignorance). The Great Saints who have come and gone before us clearly define that a Guru is one who has meditated solely on God, has flung his whole personality into the sea of God and drowned and forgotten it there, till he becomes only the instrument of God; and when his mouth opens it speaks God’s words without effort or forethought; and when he raises a hand, God flows again through that, to work a miracle. Do not think too much of psychical phenomena and such things. Their number is legion; and once faith in the psychical thing is established in the heart of a seeker, such phenomena have done their work. Clairvoyance, clairaudience, and such things are not worth having, when so much far greater illumination and peace are possible without them than with them. The Guru takes on these powers as a form of Self-Sacrifice. The idea that a Master is simply one who has attained power over the various occult senses by long practice and prayer or anything of the kind, is absolutely false. No Guru ever cared a rap for occult powers, for he has no need for them in his daily life. The phenomena we see are curious and surprising – but the most marvelous of all we do not realize and that is that one, and only one, illimitable force is responsible for: -- All the phenomena we see; and the Act of seeing them. Do not fix your attention on all these changing things of life, dearth and phenomena. Do not think of even the actual act of seeing or perceiving them, but only of that which sees all these things – That which is responsible for it all. This will seem nearly impossible at first, but by degrees the result will be felt.

As we travel the path to Spirituality, it has to be clearly understood that it is beyond our body, mind, energy or emotions. As a first attempt in the form of writing this article, let us be aware of certain guidelines and teachings of Great Saints. This article highlights some excerpts from the knowledge and wisdom

Siddhi Times USA 65

God or an Almighty: As Swami Vivekananda put it in an easy way to understand for a question from one of his disciple “ whether God exists?”, he pointed to three things in our life – (1) as long as the event of death exists, (2) as long as the events that we desire for, does not happen and (3) as long as the events that we do not desire for, does happen -- God will exist, whether you believe it or not. Religion, whether it be Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Theosophy, or any other kind of “Ism” or “Sophy” or system, can only take us to the one point where all religions meet and no further. That one point where all religions meet is the realization – in no mystical sense, but in the most worldly and everyday sense, and the more worldly and everyday and practical the better, -- of the fact that God is everything, and every thing is God. From this point begins the work of the practice of this mental comprehension, and all it amounts to is the breaking of a habit. One has to cease calling things “things”, and must call them God; and instead of thinking them to be things, must know them to be God; instead of imagining “existence” to be the only thing possible, one must realize that this phenomenal existence is only the creation of the mind, that “non-existence” is a necessary sequence if you are going to postulate “existence”. It takes years of steady, daily practice, and that is how a Guru is made. Give a quarter of an hour a day for this practice. Try to keep the mind unshakenly fixed on That which sees. It is inside yourself. Do not expect to find that “That” is something definite on which the mind can be fixed easily: it will not be so. Though it takes years to find that “That”, the results of this concentration will be seen in four or five months’ time – in all sorts of unconscious clairvoyance, in peace of mind, in power to deal with troubles, in power all round, yet always unconscious power. Let the aforementioned thoughts and teachings of Ramana Maharishi guide us in our path to spirituality. From now onwards, let your whole thought in meditation be not on the act of seeing, nor on what you see, but immovably on That which Sees. The knowledge of things only shows the existence of an organ to cognize. There are no sounds to the deaf, no sights to the blind, and the mind is merely an organ of conception or of appreciation of certain sides of God. God is infinite, and therefore existence and non-existence are merely His counterparts. Further to above-mentioned understandings of Ramana Maharishi, he also doesn’t wish to say that God is made up of Definite component parts. It is hard to be comprehensive when talking of God. True knowledge comes from within and not from without. And true knowledge is not “knowing” but “seeing”. Aum Shanthi! Contributed to Siddhi Times by Chandra Mohan Loganathan.

In

the world history, “ALEXANDER THE GREAT” was a very notable king of Greek. His ambitions and hopes were always focused on expanding his power and regime by covering almost all countries of Asia. His troops and commanders were very large in numbers. The victories followed one after another. All the routes and ways, up to India were known perfectly by his Commanders. The annexing of the countries and enlarging his kingdom for several thousands miles were done with great efforts. There was a stage when Alexander was capturing the position of emperor of the world. On his way, after reaching the Indian Territory, the great king happened to witness a scene. There was a man, with long beard sitting under a tree and meditating who looked just like a Fakir. Fakirs were the persons inland, like Afghanistan with long beard. As Alexander went closer, wondered to see this man with no cloths. But, the king’s presence was not noticed by that Fakir. Since Alexander crossed all the lands and met several people, he just considered that man as Fakir. But, he was actually a sage who do penance, which is an art of worshipping the Almighty by meditation. In those days the ‘sages’ did such penance by closing eyes for months and years together. They needed no food and they would continue their meditation in a fixed position for such prolonged periods. Since the King was unnoticed and not shown any sign of respect, Alexander got very angry. The sage did not even open his eyes as his concentration was on meditation. King Alexander got wild and took his sword. Oh! No! The king just cut the beard of the sage. But, there was no response from the sage. The soldiers and commanders were also witnessing the event. King then turned violent to kill the sage. The sharp edge of the sword was aimed to set in between the eye brows of the sage. Slowly the sage opened his eyes and began to speak. “Oh, King Alexander, I know you are a valiant and a great warrior. Why should you interfere in my duties?” Astonishingly, the King calmed down from his temper and asked

the sage, “All the people from all countries are welcoming and bow down their heads in respect. Why are you, the only person to disobey the situation?”

Sage smiled and told “Only for the Almighty, the God, I use to bow and pray. Even though you are a king, you are just a man like me. So, I need no commitment to bow”. Sage added further “Your days are counted, when you go back to home after these victories, the death will occur. Bear it in your mind”. King did not want to continue any conversation with the sage and went on to attend his duty. Later, Alexander won several other battles and was returning to his country. In the midway he fell ill and was suffering. The circumstance was very crucial and helpless. He was not able to get any good medicines. King then called the commander-in-chief and explained to him. “ C o m m a n d e r, the man I thought was fakir, whom I spoke in India; I think he is more than a Sage. Do you remember the incident?” “Yes my lord!! It was like a miracle on that day” replied the Commander. “Indians are actually very skilled. We under estimated their efficiencies of good men. Now, I feel that day has come to me.” King cried. “No your lordship, you will live a long life” a reply came. The deeply sorrowed King with no energy said, “My savings, wealth, all gold, lands and diamonds, which are secured through the war, nothing could now be helpful as suitable as medicine for me”. The great King, who conquered most of the world, died and left this world. The Sage’s words came true. His experience is a great example for all of us to realize that power, position and ego exercised against the nature, can sabotage anybody’s life and consciousness in a negative way. Quote: Avoid having your ego so close to your position that when your position falls, your ego goes with it.

resent civilization is the change of entire old pattern. The Electricity and the madern usages, were denoted by “King Soloman” in that old age itself. Just by keeping lamps which could give little brightness were used in the past records of civilization (Oil lamps). Prior to that it was in the form of “Pantham” (Cloth pieces or dried leaves of plants rolled on a stick) was used to bring light in the night times. So, the brightness due to fire burning upwards, was in practice to get light in the olden times. Fire will be in flames and reaching in vertical position from ground. “Day will come on that day the man will have the light downwards from the roof”. The sayings of King solomon proved correct when the Electricity was invented. Telling of one’s future was also in practice through “SOOTH SAYERS”. They were driving their brains to reach an extra capacity more than the sixth sense which is the medical sciences distinguishing the difference from Animals and human beings. Latter stage, TELEPATHY came. From the words, Telegram, Telephone, we find the front letters are denoting the meaning of Tele; then thought reading were in lime light to find one’s inner instinct and his thinking. The action empowered while the 27 stars which were crossed by

This would be observed on water, river, ocean ,and on mountains in all the directions. Every star according to month and day proving certain good as well bad in the routines or the day. The Dasa Bukthi system is based on Lunar movements. Basic and Vedic law on Lunar movements had been inspired. Would it be beneficial to accumulate wealth? Would it cause any loss? In all such ways the research went on. The advancement in material and spiritual growth in all section were calculated by our sages. In Atharva Veda, the sloga No.7 of chapter 19 says that 28 stars and the deities were notified. In common use and modern application, there are 27 stars. The star Abhijit is not given proper place. In later periods, Greek and Chinese people combined with us and fixed the stars as 27. The Sloga of 19th Kanda (Chapter and verse) Heaven is with various types of astorisms and qualities; that move together with great speed. All these happenings were related to the creator God. The application of Pythagoras theory and other mathematical devices, the accurate distance and speed of every planet is acquired during the recent period. Gradually, the science of foretelling improved. During “Maha Bharatha” times (In the History of India, Pancha Pandavas ruled this country keeping the Asthinapura as capital (present NEW DELHI). “Sanjaya” he knew the art of finding the actual happenings at distart places. His mind to the extent of televising the happenings which were taking place in the war field, was dictated as it was to Dhrutharashtra The war between Pancha Pandavas and Gawrawas were commenced exactly at a distant place. The comments were by point to point explaining the happenings at the war field. The death of soldiers,

Siddhi Times USA 68

prominent war commanders were expressed very accurately. For all these things, “Adharva” Vedha was taught by teachers in a proper way. The continued exercises were fruitful to bring the present Astrology. There are still persons to predict, the things to the dignity of accuracy. Now there are persons who criticize this, without knowing the real essence of this peculiar Art. The moving of moon and its positions was noted as “Dina Chandra” The transit of moon on its daily routine, is capable

of forecasting the trends, market prices, ups and downs of a commodity. For the life of a man, the happenings and his body – position and the occasion he could meet were also predicted. From Atharva Veda, it is explained that each and every star possesses certain qualities and the human beings are benefitted with following responses. Every star and its name in Tamil, Sanskrit and Western language is clearly mentioned here in respective order.
