#MountKailash is a majestic #mountain peak in the Kailash Mountain range at #Tibet. It is considered to be the abode of #LordShiva according to #Hindu mythology. Its is also called the ‘crystal mountain’ as Kailash means crystal in Sanskrit.
Kailash Mountain is sacred to #Hindus, #Jains and #Buddhists all over the #world. Each year, millions of #devotees from these faiths make #holy pilgrimages, to visit the #earthly homes of their #Gods. The #Manosarovar Lake at the foot of the mountain is also significant in #Hinduism as the ‘lake of Creation’ of all #life. It has tremendous natural #beauty.
According to the #Puranas, the four faces of Mount Kailash are made from crystal, ruby, gold and lapis lazuli. It is also called the pillar of the world. According to ancient beliefs, this enigmatic Tibetan mountain represents the axis of the world or the stairway to #heaven. In many eastern countries Mount Kailash is considered the #holiest place on Earth. Some ancient sources say this is where we can find the mysterious city of the gods. Mount Kailash is of great #religious significance. Hinduism teaches that Lord Shiva, the destroyer of evil and sorrow, resides at the summit of the legendary mountain Kailash , where he sits in a state of perpetual #meditation along with his wife #Parvati. ❣️🌍✨🔥 #harharmahadev

Dünyanın en büyük festivali #KUMBHMELA
Dünyada her yıl kültürel, dinsel festival, panayır gerçekleştirilir. Ancak bunlardan hiçbiri Hindistan’daki Kumbh Mela kadar katılımcı toplayamaz. 2001’de, Allahabad (Prayag) kentindeki Kumbh Mela’ya 60 milyon kişi katıldı. Mekke’ye ya da Vatikan’a yılda ortalama 3 milyon hacının gittiği göz önüne alınırsa, bu çok büyük bir rakam.
İSMİNİ GÜĞÜMDEN ALIYOR
Sanskritçede kumbha kulpsuz, ağzı dar, kavanoz ya da güğüm; mela da toplanma, festival ya da panayır anlamına geliyor. Kumbh Mela’yı güğüm festivali olarak çevirebiliriz. Kökeni Hindistan’da ilk nehir etkinliklerinin başladığı antik Vedik dönemine kadar gider. Kaynağı Hint mitolojisi, Puranalar’da, Maharabata ve Ramayana destanlarında anlatılır, Hintlilerin yaradılış mitlerinden kaynaklanır.
Bir zamanlar tanrılar güçlerini yitirir, yeniden kazanmak ve ölümsüzlük iksiri Amrita’yı ele geçirmek için Süt Okyanusu’nun çırpılması gerekir. Bunun için iblislerin yardımı gerekir, içkiyi adilce paylaşmak üzere anlaşırlar. Süt Okyanusu’nu beraberce çalkaladıklarında, Amrita bir testinin (Kumbh) içinde ortaya çıkar. İblisler Amrita’yı paylaşmak istemeyip testiyi çalınca, gökyüzünde büyük bir savaş başlar. Tanrılar ve şeytanlar 12 gün 12 gece savaşır. Yeryüzündeki 12 yıla tekabül eden mücadelede Amrita, Hindistan’ın dört ayrı noktasına dökülür. Böylece Kumbh Mela’nın kutlandığı dört yer belirlenmiş olur: Allahabad (Prayag), #Haridvar, #Uccain, #Nasik. Kumbh Mela, üç yılda bir dört ayrı kentte, her birinde 12 yılda bir kutlanmak üzere gerçekleştirilir. Bu, hac ve suda arınma etkinliğidir.

Moral, ética, bravura, simplicidade, compaixão, adoração - qual é o valor do valores? Onde vive a minha idoneidade e verdade com a vida? Em @contoscomsabedoria cada conto é um valor da humanidade traduzido em sabedoria. Contos para escutar e imaginar a SUA história. Vem escutar também! #contoscomsabedoria #ovalordosvalores #yoga #vedanta #tradição #puranas #oral #contos

The sum total of pleasures in this world are but a mere drop when compared to the bliss of true freedom.
.
Q: If pleasure is not the final outcome of freedom, then what is?
.
To anticipate the enjoyment of your desires is bondage. For anticipation is the thread that binds a person to an expected outcome, which ultimately leads to suffering. Whereas occupying your desires while remaining pleasantly indifferent to the expectation and enjoyment of their outcome, is liberation, which brings peace to the mind. For when the mind is at peace and when all disturbing thought-waves have subsided. When there is an unbroken flow of contentment, with happiness generated from within one’s own being. When the mind can remain indifferent and unmoved in the act having and not having — then a person lives free.
.
Q: Surely this is freedom! But how can one find such liberation in this life?
.
At the entrance to the realm of freedom, there are four gates. They are self-control, inquiry, contentment, and good company. Self-control is the best remedy for all physical and mental illnesses. For when there is self-control, a person is intentionally purposeful, in which a light pours from their eyes, generating a presence of trust and reassurance that is incomparable. Inquiry protects one from the calamities that befall those who live unconsciously. For when inquiry lives within a persons mind, they seek to understand and are learned by the study of constant attention, thus enlightening those in their company and dispelling all personal delusions that give rise to actions which are harmful to oneself. Contentment is the giver of peace and the end of all cravings. For when contentment lives, a persons thoughts are purified and impulse no longer rules, which generates a calming inner-steadiness that eradicates all anxieties and depressions. Good company is an outer-light that arouses one’s personal intelligence, aiding in the dismantling of ignorance, and thus remeding mental distress. For when a person is surrounded by the wealth of good company, their mind is cultured by accountability and inspiration, washing away personal delusions that are bound by the stigma of self-concern.

Monday is considered very #auspicious for the #worship of Lord Shiva. Devotees throng at Shiva #temples on Mondays specially to get the #blessings of the merciful Lord who can remove the difficulties of devotees and give all the desired #boons. 16 Monday fast is one of the most popular vrat or fasting observances in Hinduism dedicated to Lord Shiva. Hindus believe that Lord Shiva is the #supreme Lord and since observing fasting over 16 consecutive Mondays also known as solah somvar vrat is known to bestow several benefits to #devotees.
The reason for fasting on a day is usually traced back to a particular incident in one of the #Hindu #Puranas or folk tradition. There are numerous myths associated with a particular fast. The stories vary from region to region and from community to community. Somvar Vrat, or Monday fasting, dedicated to Lord Shiva too has numerous stories. Among the several myths, three have gained popularity – the first is the story of a poor Brahmin gaining wealth due to #Monday fasting, second is the story of a rich merchant begetting a son after long wait and the subsequent death of the son and his rebirth due to the grace of #lordshiva Shiva and #Parvati and the third story is the most famous involving the game of dice played between Shiva and Parvati. #harharmahadev #awakening #bliss #devotion #love #soul #om #onegod #universe
