Per the Suprabedhagama and Amsumadbhedagama (manuals of Hindu iconographic depiction, inter alia) - we may find Surya flanked by Prathyusha & … Continue reading The Maricis Of Lord Surya – A Solar Warrior Women Typology ?

Wisdom Is A Gods-Given Gift : Use It -Mahabharat Wisdom For The Modern Age

A maxim from the Mahabharat that somebody had posted, in response to the rather obvious question of why devotees attending the Kumbh Mela had not emerged unscathed from the Covid-19 community superspreading there: न देवा दण्डमादाय रक्षन्ति पशुपालवत् ।यं हि रक्षितुमिच्छन्ति बुद्ध्या संयोजयन्ति तम्॥ "Gods do not brandish a cane,Minding men like sheepThey bless with … Continue reading Wisdom Is A Gods-Given Gift : Use It -Mahabharat Wisdom For The Modern Age
