Hindu Reincarnation
Reincarnation as is grossly misunderstood speaks of rebirth of the soul. As per Bhagavad Gita... our soul atman does not need rebirth. Rebirth can only occur if something dies. When the death of the soul atman cannot occur... rebirth or reincarnation carry no meaning in the domain of souls' atmans.

Ways to achieve Immortality
Immortality... becoming immortal in ones lifetime means gaining enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally achieving the stage of salvation (moksha)! The moment human beings gain salvation... all is over for the soul atman within.

Body Mind Spirit
The essence of life... spirit within every human being denotes the presence of a supernatural being... a source of energy not governed nor tamed by the forces of nature. Spirit in true sense is that vital life force existing within every living being without which the body would decay and die.

Prarabdha Karma
Prarabdha karma is that facet of cosmic life that does not manifest in human life as a predetermined cause. The residual balance of karma in every life manifests itself in the next life for it is the balance of karma of the earlier manifestations that decides what our next manifestation would be.

Shankara Advaita Vedanta
Advaita Vedanta... the doctrine of non dualism is one without a parallel. Propagated
in the history of mankind by Adi Shankaracharya... Advaita Vedanta implies one and only one.
The philosophy of Advaita Vedanta... the non dual characteristic of the supreme Lord, the Almighty God aka Parmatman in hinduism confirms that the Creator God does not have a dualistic nature.

God Brahma
Brahma is that attribute of God Almighty which resulted in the creation of the cosmos. Brahma is the Creative power of the cosmos in Hinduism. Brahma is one of the three attributes of God Almighty. The two other attributes being the maintainer (god Vishnu) and the destroyer (god Shiva).

Self Realization fellowship
Self Realization is the culmination of all things spiritual. It is the end of cosmic journey. Self Realization announces it is time for our soul atman within the body to get liberated forever from the cycle of birth and death. Reaching the stage of Self Realization means reaching the 8.4 millionth manifestation!

Define Atman
Atman in hinduism is that core of life in absence of which the existence of the body itself gets negated. Atman in hinduism stands for our soul which resides in the heart within the body. For that matter... every single living being... be it the form of an insect, plant or an animal... the presence of atman is a confirmed fact.

Kalki Bhagavan avatar
Bhagavan Kalki... the showman of the era is expected shortly. One with almost equivalent powers of Lord Krishna... Bhagavan Kalki would be the most revered person on Mother Earth in the near future. It would be beyond the capacity of a normal human being to assess and understand the phenomenon that would be termed as Bhagavan Kalki.

Bhagavad Gita krishna
Bhagavad Gita is the only sacred scripture existing on mother earth knowing which cosmic journey of 8.4 million manifestations comes to an end. The doctrine of Bhagavad Gita was given to the mankind by Lord Krishna in the battlefield of Mahabharata.

Big Bang
What happened before the big bang, evidence of the big bang theory, what caused the big bang, big bang theory of evolution are some of the questions asked on the Internet today.

Define Celibacy
As commonly understood Celibacy primarily neither relates to remaining unmarried nor it has anything to do with sexual abstinence alone. Celibacy primarily is practicing purity in a sexual relationship. Absolute practitioners of celibacy may also remain bachelors (unmarried) in life.

Hinduism Sanatana Dharma
Hinduism: can be best defined as Sanatana Dharma... something that exists from times immemorial. Hinduism does not have a beginning... it exists ever since Humanity came into existence. The inner strength of Hinduism is Dharma... which also forms the base of all Religions existing on Mother Earth.

Hinduism Beliefs basics
Hinduism Beliefs: Hinduism believes in the continuity of Life... the death of the body does not mean all is over as per the beliefs in Hinduism. The reincarnation belief is the primary asset of Hinduism. As per Hinduism beliefs our atman the soul within is on a cosmic journey primarily meant for the purification of Atman (eradication of the dross within the soul).

Atman Hinduism Soul
Atman: Glory be to every individual living being who is here on Mother Earth as a manifested being owing to the atman the soul within it. No soul ... No Life! Atman soul is the Essence of all living beings including insects, plants, trees and animals.

Inner self meaning definition Innerself
What is your Inner self? What do we mean when we talk of the Inner self? Is it a part of the body or its existence in the body... still a matter of speculation! The Inner self within every living being including human beings is the subtle core present within every being without which the existence of the body itself gets negated.

Lord Krishna
Who is Krishna God in Hinduism? What is the significance of Lord Krishna vis-à-vis all the sacred Scriptures of Hinduism. What is the role of Lord Krishna in Bhagavad Gita? Did Krishna ever exist? These are some of the questions I receive through the Internet often.

In the cosmic domain salvation is the highest manifest stage that can be reached by a human being nay by the soul atman within. On the earthly domain salvation is termed as completing the journey by our soul atman within. Does this mean that our soul atman within shall no more have to manifest a body again.

Shiva Lingam
In physical terms lingam denotes an erect penis. Shiva lingam is the most worshipped entity in Hinduism religion. We find Shiva temples having a Shiva lingam installed in them at every nook and corner of India nay world. Why? Shiva... a part of Hindu trinity represents the most powerful attribute of God Almighty (amongst all three entities).

Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa saint of dakshineswar
King of the Kings... the savior of mankind... Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa was one of its kinds. Ramkrishna Paramhans... the priest of the dakshineswar temple realized god within his lifetime. He was a contemporary of Maharishi Ramana who also realized god. In the last about 150 years only two persons realized God.

Almighty God
God: Almighty God... god the Creator... a Hindu god... an Indian god... a Christian god... be it any god personified... the entity of god shall always remain one. The Creator of the whole Cosmos is one. God Almighty is also one. God is that powerful entity of the cosmos which lies beyond the domain of human beings.

Agni God of Fire
Agni: plays the utmost role in the evolutionary process. When you physically burn an object you externally reduce it to ashes. What of agni Fire burning inside! The Agni in the stomach helps you dissolve all types of food you partake from solids to liquids.

Acharya Guru
Acharya (in terms of spirituality)... the guru... spiritual master is one who fundamentally makes available the jargon of spiritual knowledge to the mankind at large. If there were no Acharyas... the spiritual wisdom would have been limited to the few spiritual masters of the era. Why?

Adhyatma Study of atman
Adhyatma: study of Atman (The Soul Within) constitutes the most basic and fundamental study of what constitutes the real self of every Human Being and Jiva. Study of the Self involves a thorough study of the various sacred Scriptures of all Religions existing in the World.

Aham Ego
Aham: is the root cause of this Ephemeral World! No Ego ... One would Emancipate and gain Self-Realization, free from the bondage of Life and Death forever. One does Karma ... An inherent force drives one to action! You desire results. What if you were told fruits are not for you to reap!

Anadi Kaal ever since formation of universe
Anadi Kaal: is a term coined in Hindu mythology for a period even before the beginning of cosmos! It is stated in Hindu Scriptures that the Evolution of cosmos had no beginning (anadi kaal). Sooner the collapse of the cosmos takes place, Big Bang occurs giving birth to a new cosmos.

Antaratma inner self soul
Antaratma: Study of Atman inner self. What is the difference between the physical self and the inner self (antaratma), the domain of atman the soul within? Physical self is the bodily form taken by an Atman the soul within whereas antaratma (the inner self) is the Cosmic truth and non-perishable.

Aparigriha non covetousness
Aparigriha: every male born in the society has been given a right to choose but one female and that too depends upon the fruits of Karma performed by you. You get to marry the daughter of a King or a laborer is solely dependent on your resultant Karma.

Atman Hinduism inner self soul
Atman: Glory be to every individual living being who is here on Mother Earth as a manifested being owing to atman the soul within it. No soul ... No Life! Atman soul is the Essence of all living beings including insects, plants, trees and animals.

Atmanubhooti Personal experience of God
Atmanubhooti: is that stage in the Life of a Yogi when all is over with him. Having come face-to-face with God, one is in such a stage of Ecstasy that all World appears dwarfed to him. One does not desire anything further (after Atmanubhooti).

Bhagvad Gita the cosmic wisdom
Bhagvad Gita: One doctrine which can change the entire face of mankind and give solace to one and all... and the best part of it is... all are gainers! No losers!! The Essence of all sacred Scriptures existing on Mother Earth... not related to any Religion, creed or caste... the most sacred Doctrine existing on Mother Earth... the Essence of all Humanity!

Big Bang
Big Bang is that event in the history of the whole cosmos that without the big bang... the existence of the present cosmos would never have been possible. A cosmos without a Cosmos... it is only for an umpteenth moment of a second... the time between the dissolution of cosmos (called Pralaya in Hinduism) and the start of a fresh Cosmos with the big bang that there exists nothing but an absolute blank.

Brahman Almighty God
Brahman: is totally different from the Gods we pray to in our normal course of Life. To comprehend the reality of the Absolute (Brahman) is just banned to ordinary Human Beings. Those on a path towards Self, God-Realization get a glimpse of his domain now and then ... the divine link which keeps the spark of self inquiry glowing within!

Brahmacharya vrata celibacy vow of celibacy
Brahmacharya vrat: is the most fundamental requirement to be followed truthfully, sincerely and honestly for a period of full twelve years in continuation. A single break would render the austere practice useless. All would have to be repeated again.

Brahmaand Universe Cosmos
Brahmaand: brahmand stands for the total Creation existing ... perceptible by our senses, science and beyond all comprehension up to the last stretches of entity covered by evolution. To envision the vast area covered by total Cosmos, we have to start from the level of a Human Being.

Daan Charity Donation
Daan: donation is that important aspect of the Life of a Human Being which provides him solace even when one gives away his most precious possessions. Daan is meant to propitiate sins of the yester years. You ask Forgiveness from the Lord for all sins committed knowingly or unknowingly in this or earlier lives.

Death has always been the most dreaded factor of life for any living being. It is not only the humans who are afraid of death... animals and other forms of life also feel the same! What makes death the most fearful of all attributes of God? There is none who can defy death.

Dukkha Definition Disheartened sadness
Dukkha: is the feeling of unhappiness which overtakes when you occur some loss! It may be the loss of a Life, Material riches or any other factor with which one associates his happiness! Dukkha is other side of the coin of Life! Unless you feel it, you can never comprehend happiness in its right measure!!

Dharma Definition
Dharma: is the root from where stemmed the present Civilizations ... their Faiths, beliefs and practices! The origin of all Cultures and Religions ... Dharma is the Eternal guiding force which guided the first Human Being on Earthly journey!

Jiva Being
Jiva: who is a jiva! Every being with atman the soul within is known as a jiva. It has been destined by God the Creator that Jiva never plays an independent role in its Lifetime. It is always prompted by atman the soul within. A jiva is formed when an Atman manifests a body.

Jnana eternal knowledge
Jnana: is totally different from the knowledge of the physical World gained through the senses! To live in this World it is totally essential to have knowledge of the things we perceive through the senses. Sciences help us to evolve as a perfect Human Being but, to enter the domain of God the Creator of the cosmos ... Esoteric knowledge, the knowledge of the Spiritual realm is a must!!

Jnana Yoga path of wisdom
Jnana Yoga: path of wisdom is that path in Spirituality rarely treaded by even the most serious of all seekers. With none to guide, it is extremely difficult for one to proceed on this path. Only God-Realized Souls are competent to guide one on the path.

Kaal cosmic time factor
Kaal: the Eternal time factor, the controller of destiny of all beings on Mother Earth ... Is responsible for maintaining the balance, an equilibrium in the physical manifested World of ours. Someone dies, atman the soul within leaves the body. Where does it go?

Kaivalya Jnana the absolute knowledge
Kaivalya Jnana: is the Eternal wisdom on achieving which every Human Being Emancipates forever. A stage in Life when a Human Being rises above the mundane and gains those Spiritual Heights wherein nothing more is left to learn. All is Jnana, Kevala (only) Jnana (wisdom and only wisdom)!

Kali Yuga the age of Kali
Kali Yuga is a period in the history of mankind when the society reaches its lowest ebb. It becomes difficult even for the animals to live what to say of human beings. The trust among individuals depleting fast... comes a time when the society cannot sustain further!

Sri Kalki Bhagavan 10th incarnation of Vishnu
Bhagwan Kalki... the 10th reincarnation of Lord Vishnu... the last avatar of the era... one who delivers the mankind from the ills of today is awaited with abated breath. A phenomenon who shall be rightly termed as one-man army... the Crusader who shall set things in order shall be known as Kalki... the annihilator of the present Kali Yuga the metal age... one without a parallel.

Kalpa Vriksha the wishing tree
Kalpa Vriksha: the wish tree is one of those prized possessions of the earlier era when Humanity was in its infant stages. Science was practically non-existent and for Human Beings to survive, a source was needed to fulfill its basic requirements and necessities.

Kama Sutra kamasutra
Kama: Kamasutra: Venus, the Goddess of love rules this sensational feeling. Overcome with Kama can a man loose complete control of his senses and commit crimes of most heinous nature. Feeling passionate, the carnal desires seeking pleasure from anything sexual, desire to be one with the opposite sex, the act which leads to production of offsprings are all but attributes of kama ... The nature and conduct of absolute Cupid, the God of love.

Karma is that fundamental aspect of life which runs in the background yet controls the manifest destiny of every living being. Without karma the cosmic creation of almighty God, the cosmos itself would not exist. No individual being has his personal karma.

Karma Sutra karmasutra
Karma: is the most grossly misunderstood word in all of Scriptural texts. The literal meaning of the word as explained to the masses by Pundits is its relation to the physical concept of a being. You perform Karma as a physical manifested being and this shall suffice your journey to the Swarga Heaven ... Provided you earn Punya Karma!

Karta creator of the cosmos
Karta: creator of the cosmos is one. Call it by the name of Brahman, Bhagwan, Prabhu or Parmatma the Karta (Creator) of the whole cosmos shall ever remain one. Consider it having a form or a form less being, a mighty computer preset to function based on the Karma of all individual beings ... it never interferes with the Karma or the Destiny of one.

Krodha anger
Krodha: unable to control this basic instinct present in every Human since birth ... Is the foremost of all ills practiced by Human Beings today. Cause of differentiation between an ordinary Human Being and a man of wisdom, this is the last of all instincts controlling which every Human Being can become a living God ... A true Mahavira, Buddha or a Jesus Christ!

Kundalini Yoga kundalini awakening
Kundalini is the most potent form of yoga one shall come across while proceeding on the path of spirituality. It is most surprising that in my case I was not required to awaken my Kundalini as it was only after having realized God that I became aware that my Kundalini had fully awakened.

Lingam the erect penis
Lingam: Shiva Lingam is symbolic of the Creative Power of the Universe. By controlling the mundane desires, even the most bestial of beings can rise and conquer the World. Coupled with full zeal and enthusiasm after establishing absolute control over ones sexual urges ... one is able to divert and control all his energies towards a particular goal.

Mahabharata dharma yuddha
Mahabharata: mahabharat the most wonderful Epic ever written in the history of mankind! Only through Mahabharata does one come to know of Gita, the song Eternal ... The messages of Cosmic wisdom conveyed by Lord Krishna to Arjuna in the battlefield of Kurushetra!!

Maya Veil of Ignorance
Maya: what separates a Human Being from God the Creator! Can we see the stars in daylight. One who has seen only day light would never believe the existence of stars. What makes us believe half truth as the only Truth!!

Manifest Destiny
The destiny of a human being is fixed or variable. Can the control of destiny be exercised by one! Is it possible for a normal human being to take complete control of his destiny? Is it possible to manifest destiny?

Dharma is that Elixir vitae of the cosmic system in absence of which life cannot sustain on its own. Dharma is the root cause of life be it the form of an insect, plant, animal or a human being.

Enlightened Being
In present life the entity enlightened beings is normally referred to those who have enlightened themselves in the field of poetry, art, mysticism, Spirituality and any other facet of life which is creative and constructive in nature.

Spiritual Enlightenment
Enlightenment is something what we have been born for! The entire process of a soul atman manifesting a body right from the first manifestation as an amoeba and until the last leg of the journey (the total journey of 8.4 million manifestations) was the requisite of our soul atman for without it our soul atman could not have survived.

Hope and Faith
Faith is that power of discrimination made available to mankind by God Almighty using which a human being can not only reach God but accomplish tasks considered unachievable.

Hindu God
God is that subtle truth of life without which humanity nay any existence of life on Mother Earth could not exist. Reaching God is reaching the end of cosmic journey! One can always feel the presence of God but having reached stage of enlightenment it is only enlightened beings that come face-to-face with God in their lifetime!

Meditation Yoga in hindi
Meditation: Anyone with a slight Spiritual inclination would say with confidence that one meditates daily. Ask them the right procedure for Meditation ... most would stare blank! One may say, Meditation means concentrating on the core of a lighted bulb in a darkened room.

Moha deep emotional attachment
Moha: moh to any object is infested with and becomes the root cause of most harm inflicted on the society!!! One who leads a Life with unattached attitude is able to maintain a balance between the physical manifested Life (the mundane existence) and the Spiritual component propelled by Atman (the soul) within.

Moksha Salvation
Moksha: moksh is the stage when an Enlightened Human being .... Who has Realized Self decides to leave the body ... To become free of all manifestations ever! Freed from the cycle of Birth and Death, the Human being in its pristine glory ... A purified Atman soul ... Finds place finally in the abode of God the Creator of the cosmos (the place from where it started its journey)!

Mrityu Death end of Life
Mrityu: is the only factor most feared and dreaded by all living beings. No one wants to die. All want to live forever, become immortal. Can that be? When God created the system, it had to possess within its being the power to change. Without change all would look monotonous and Life itself would stagnate.

Mukti Liberation
Mukti as defined in hinduism denotes the end of cosmic life itself. Reaching the stage of Mukti means reaching the stage of salvation as in Buddhism! Mukti is a word coined in hinduism for liberation. Liberation from the cycle of birth and death forever!

Namaskar Bowing
Namaskar: namashkar is the indian way of greeting one when one meets face-to-face with another. There is a vast difference in the western mode of shaking hands and the Hindu way of saying Namaste with clasped hands.

Naraka Hell
Naraka: narak located on Mother Earth ... The abode of those unfortunate ones who owing to ignorance committed sin after sin only to land themselves in the land of punishment.

Nimitta predestined course of life
Nimitta: the physical after effect of Niyati (predestined Life) is Nimitta ... what was ordained is bound to happen. Changeover of Niyati in a Life-cycle by a Human Being is as difficult as climbing of Mt. Everest by an elephant. The Cosmic system is different from the World of Maya (illusion) ... our physical manifested World.

Nirvikalpa Samadhi State of absolute nothingness
Nirvikalpa Samadhi: nirvikalp samadhi is the culmination of all practices that are Spiritual. The achievement of a goal where one meets the Creator of all Essence, comes face-to-face with his own atman the soul within which is of the same Essence as Brahman (the Creator of the cosmos).

Niyati Predestined
Niyati: What was predestined (fixed by Niyati) cannot be changed or interfered in even by God Almighty. As per your balance Karmas if you are predestined to be born in the house of a black Smith ... can one change your destiny and arrange your birth in the house of a King! None!

Omkar aum om
Omkar: Aum is the medium by which every atman soul connects itself with the Creator of the cosmos. Every Yogi, Mystic or a Sadhu chants this word again and again to rise higher and higher on the Cosmic plane. One has to maintain absolute purity of thought to reap the fruits of practicing such austerities.

Paapi committer of sin
Paapi: papi is one who is unable able to differentiate absolute truth from all that is Sinful ... actions required to be abhorred under all circumstances.Such ignorants (Paapi) are required to be pitied rather than punished for the doer of all actions is atman the soul within and not the egoist body!

Parmanand State of absolute ecstasy
Parmanand: paramanand is the stage in the Life of Human Being when he sheds all his artificial inhibitions and orients self towards search of the absolute truth. The more one proceeds towards the truthful end, the bliss felt by him in all actions is but part of the eternal joy one had been seeking.

Pralaya dissolution End of cosmos
Pralaya: pralay is a time not for sorrow but for rejoicing ... for all Atmans Souls in the Cosmos have no alternative but to attain Moksha Salvation. No room left for Maya to play its role ... the Cosmos rolls back to its original size, the size of a half a thumb!

Punarjanma Rebirth Reincarnation
Punarjanma: punarjanam is a fact which the ego of an average Human Being fails to admit. Why would one with an average intelligence admit that he or she is not the controller of self. Punarjanma signifies the existence of a greater entity bigger than us, the individual self.

Pundit priest
Pundit: pandit is one who carries out all religious ceremonies as prescribed in the sacred texts of the Religion he follows. On every auspicious occasion... It is the moral responsibility of the Pundit to invoke the mighty spirits to bless the ceremonial function .. Be it the fixation of a marriage, entering a newly built house or the opening ceremony of a shop or a factory.

Ramayana the great hindu epic
Ramayana: ramayan is one of the two greatest Indian Epics which teaches Humanity about the science of living! How one must interact with another, relationships between different beings, respect one must pay to Parents and Gurus, all the while fulfilling the desires of the Lord (upholding Dharma at each and every stage) ... Is the message conveyed!!

Samvad dialogues
Samvad: Dialogues anything spoken in true spirit and right earnestness leads one to a Samvad (dialogue) taking place between two or more learned people. A correct and right spirited Samvad can lead to a wonderful discussion taking place between two or more persons.

Sanatana Purusha the almighty creator
Sanatana Purusha: sanatan purush one who is Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient and existing before the beginning and after the collapse of the cosmos. From Times Immemorial, the Creator (Sanatana Purusha) is identified as a Purusha (personified as a being) that exists before and after the beginning.

Shama kshama forgiveness
Shama: Forgiveness is the tool with which indian Saints of the past and present have guided the society to its present status! The power to Forgive (Shama), the biggest and most effective tool to conquer even the staunchest enemy is but a matter of record.

Shaswat since times immemorial
Shaswat: shasvat since Times Immemorial is a term used in Hindu Scriptures to refer to the religious dogmas and creeds being followed by all since Times Immemorial. What was a stated by Mahavira, Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed about 1800 ~2500 years ago remains the cornerstone of the developed society today.

Shavasana the dead pose
Shavasana: shavasan is that yogic posture practicing which one is able to still his hyper active brain, control thought process by gaining absolute control over one's breathing. In practice very few people breathe correctly. Most inhale air through their mouth instead of nostrils and suck it into stomach.

Videha Shetra cosmic regions in space
Shetra: shetr are described in Hindu sacred Scriptures as Cosmic regions unseen and unknown to mankind. They are presumed to exist somewhere in the Cosmos more nearer to our planet earth. Reference to such regions is made only in Scriptural texts, the most commonly referred to is Videha Shetra.

Shraddha absolute faith in god
Shraddha: shradha absolute Faith is the only quality existing in a being which brings it closer to God the Creator. Absence of Shraddha (absolute Faith in God) can Mar one's Life and bring him closer to behaving like an animal. Absolute Faith in God is a must for all Yogis, Sadhus and Saints.

Shreshtha better amongst individuals
Shreshtha: shreshth better amongst individuals signifies the relative superiority of one from the masses in general. In the older days, when science was under development and Human Being had not evolved to the extent as of now, the control of the society rested in the hands of one who was considered Shreshtha (superior) amongst all ... one above the ordinary.

Siddhi spiritual powers
Siddhi: sidhi- gaining Self Realization, the highest stage of Emancipation is the stage of Siddhi after which every person leaves the body at will and attains Moksha Salvation ... To reside forever in the abode of God thereafter. Complete liberation from the manifestations ... How noble the experience would be.

Shruti Jnana universal mode of communication
Shruti: shruti is the powerful tool by which you can draw unto yourself the mighty powers of the Universe ... Invoking the mighty messages contained in all Scriptures of the World!! Imagine all the sacred Scriptures of the World (... all down through from the age of Lord Sri Krishna to Mahavira, Buddha, Jesus and Prophet Mohammed ...
