Rrishnam Vande Mantha Pasha Dharam

The eternal Vedas the origiml source of knowledge. Vedas are beyond count. Their meaning is also unlimited. No one knows the Vedas completely. Vedas in their entirety and their meaning is accessible only to Lord Chaturmukha and other seers. It is not within the strength of the mankind to comprehend the meaning of these things.
We see in Puranas how the inquisitive learners happened to meet the Seers of the Veda Mantras and how they revealed the secrets of meanings. These discussions have been recorded in the Puranas. We are told that Just as the Puranikas held spiritual discussion in holy places when they happened to meet The rushis, they also met Devas on rare occasions with whom they could interact. There are instances in Puranas where there have been interaction between the mortals and the devas. We hear that King Dasharatha went o heaven for the sake of battle and Nahusha assumed the position of Indra.

The material and the ethereal

The life can be explained in terms of laws physics, biology, economics or chemistry. But if that explanation is satisfies us, we accept that our life is not meant for anything beyond the earthly life. But there arc various issues which indicate that the physical entity is not an end in itself Besides, the entity is supposed to be the means of exploration of something beyond. Whether there is anything beyond or not is a question which necessitates a serious quest. But we are human beings.

Lord Krishna The Cosmic Teacher

Lord Krishna is not only the lord of the universe. He is also the guide of the world. He is the master of all teachers.

A warehouse of illusion The mind

We all have these questions, what is creation? How did this world come into being? Vedas and Upanishads try to answer these as that immeasurable spec of time in which the Brahman flutters out of his equilibrium; the entire creation comes into being. This is about the universe. How about applying this to our own daily lives. One of the vehicle company giant declares "because we dream, because we do ". As a paradox, this is spiritually so true. What do we exactly do? The things we think of, the things we cherish, the things we dream of and all those we imagine. So who is actually the creator of these? The mind.
