Kandhar Sashti Kavacham Audiobook

Kandhar Sashti Kavacham

Author: Venkataraman M Narrator: Venkataraman M Release Date: November 2020

According to the Vedas, the sacred texts of Hinduism, God is only one though in the Hindu way of life, he is worshipped in different forms. It is said that God manifests himself as this universe. Hence, creation, preservation and dissolution of this universe are considered as the three aspects of God which is represented respectively as Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. According to mythology, Parvathy is the spouse of Shiva. They have two children, Ganesha and Karthikeya- Ganesha being elder and Karthikeya the younger. Karthikeya is also called as Skanda among many other names. In Tamil, he is popularly known as Murugan and Kandan. The Kanda Sashti Kavacham is one of the most powerful Tamil hymns dedicated to Lord Murugan. According to a legend there was a demon named Surapadman. He got a boon from Brahma that he can only be killed by a son of Lord Shiva. After getting this boon, he was harassing the benevolent beings known as the Devas. The Devas prayed to Shiva. Shiva opened his third eye and six sparks emanated from there. The fire god Agni carried these sparks and placed them in a pond where these six sparks became six babies. Parvati took all six babies and hugged them into one. And that child is Murugan. Murugan became the Commander-in-Chief of the army of the Devas and fought a battle with Surapadman. Goddess Parvathy gave a sacred spear called ‘Vel’ to Murugan. On the sixth day of the waxing phase of the Moon called Sashti in the month of Kartika (October-November), Murugan vanquished Surapadman. Hence that day is considered as auspicious for the worship of Lord Murugan. Kavacham means a shield. The name of Lord Murugan, his Vel and Sashti the day of his victory over the evil forces are the armour which the devotees of Murugan wear as Kanda Sashti Kavacham, the shield for welfare, happiness and prosperity.

They have become the role models to the whole world. Before the beginning of any work it is common to worship Lord Ganesh. There are many Holy hymns on Lord Ganesh. Lord Ganesh’s favorite food is modak. He gets pleased if we offer Durva grass to him. He also loves red Hibiscus flower. He is called the vighnaharta because he wards off all the obstacles in our life. He is also called vighnaraja. There are infinite names to Lord Ganesh which we cannot explain. He ties a snake around his waist.

The Inner Government of the World Audiobook

The Inner Government of the World

Author: Annie Besant Narrator: Russell Stamets Release Date: October 2020

I want to put before you, if I can in these three lectures, a certain view of the world, and of the way in which that world is guided and directed. As this meeting is a public meeting, there is one statement I think that I ought to make, which it would not be necessary to make, if it were composed of members of the Theosophical Society. It is important to remember that in the Theosophical Society we have no authority on matters of opinion. Every member is free to work out his own theory of life, to choose liis own line of thought, and no one has the smallest right to dictate to any member what he should choose or what he should think. In the Theosophical Society there is only one condition which binds a member, namely, the recognition of Universal Brotherhood. Outside that every member is absolutely free. He may belong to any religion, or he may belong to no religion at all. If he belongs to a religion, he is never asked to leave it, to change it, but only to try to live up to its teachings of spiritual life, recognising the unity of all, to live in harmony with people of his own faith and people of other faiths. When we speak of Theosophy, we may take the word in one of two senses. The first, what it should be to the individual. In that sense there is no difference between Theosophy and the ancient Brahmavidya of India, the Para Vidya, and the Gnosis of the Greek—no difference at all.

Mahabharata Vol 2 (Part 1) Audiobook

Mahabharata Vol 2 (Part 1)

Author: Bibek Debroy Narrator: Sumit Kaul Release Date: September 2020

'The Greatest Story Ever ToldDispute over land and kingdom may lie at the heart of this story of war between cousins-the Pandavas and the Kouravas-but the Mahabharata is about conflicts of dharma. These conflicts are immense and various, singular and commonplace. Throughout the epic, characters face them with no clear indications of what is right and what is wrong; there are no absolute answers. Thus every possible human emotion features in the Mahabharata, the reason the epic continues to hold sway over our imagination.In this superb and widely acclaimed translation of the complete Mahabharata, Bibek Debroy takes us on a great journey with incredible ease.'

Krishna: The History and Legacy of the Popular Hindu Deity Audiobook

Krishna: The History and Legacy of the Popular Hindu Deity

Author: Charles River Editors Narrator: Daniel Houle Release Date: September 2020

Hinduism as a religion spans more than 3,000 years, and now it includes nearly 1 billion people. At the same time, it is not a specific term, since there are clear sectarian boundaries, the same way there are differences between Protestantism and Catholicism, and even differences between the various Protestant sects and the various Catholic sects, Hinduism may be broken down into many major sub-groupings that may or may not have much in common at all. Additionally, in the same way Christianity contains many smaller, spirituality heterodox groups like Gnostic Christianity (which are sometimes called cults), Hinduism also contains many groups that have beliefs that do not fit easily within the common corpus of Hindu belief systems. All of these divisions came well after the time of the Aryans, and Hinduism likely began to divide around the 1st century CE, about 1,000 years after the arrival of the Aryans into the Indian subcontinent. Sri Krishna, believed to be the eighth incarnation of Vishnu, is without question one of the most popular and instantly recognizable deities within the Hindu pantheon, which encompasses hundreds of Puranic divine beings, coupled with approximately 33 Vedic gods and goddesses or “devas,” and a sea of other lower-ranking demigods and legendary figures. The likeness of the blue-skinned, flute-toting god, blessed with an unspeakably beautiful face and midnight-black curls, has been replicated in countless sculptures, often clad in colorful clothes and adorned with gold and silver jewelry, relief carvings, paintings, and other artistic mediums, otherwise known as “murti.” Hindus and subscribers of the Bhagavad Gita, as well as practitioners of bhakti yoga, ashtanga yoga, jñana yoga, and karma yoga are intimately familiar with this god of unconditional love, compassion, and tenderness, who has also been crowned “Yogesvara,” the master of yogis and all things mystical.

Ancient Sages of India Audiobook

Ancient Sages of India

Author: Venkataraman M Narrator: Venkataraman M Release Date: September 2020

The foundations of Hinduism are the eternal and super sensuous truths discovered by ancient Indian sages. Most of them are unknown. The truths discovered by them are known as the Vedas. Sages are the great souls who have found out the truth and devoted their life, energy and experience for the welfare of the people. They are extraordinary human beings having great wisdom, vast experience and character worthy of imitation. They gifted everything to the world without seeking fame or any kind of gain. Welfare of the world was their sole objective. According to Hindu chronology, the period of the ancient sages is till the end of Dwapara Yuga, which is about 5000 years back. The penetration of these sages in the subjects they dealt with is very profound and clear. The later generation just interpreted their work and followed their footsteps. India has been blessed from time immemorial by the advent of innumerable sages. In this book you can hear the stories of some of these known sages.
