Bhagawan Dattatreya

shree datta jayantiGuru Datta is also accepted as Dattatreya. Bhagwan Dattateraya (दत्तात्रेय) is combinition of divine trinity,Brahma, Vishnu,Mahesh. It is alleged some time ago divine consorts of the trinity envied splendor and pious conduct of Maa Anusuya. She was wife of famous sage , Atri.

They asked their husbands to assess purity of this divine woman. The divine trinity assumed type of sages and asked Anusuya for a favour.
They asked her to give them alms in naked form. Anusuya replied to them that for that they've to become babies,because a mother is never ashamed of any thing before her kid. And shortly the divine trinity turned a child. The pious couple raised the infant while their own.

The path of Dattatreya (दत्तात्रेय) embraces all religious paths and is the source of all other traditions. He who treads the path of Reality, regardless of what religion he belongs to, is treading the path of Bhagwan dattatreya (दत्तात्रेय). Seeing as an incarnation of God, Datta came down to spread the universality of true religion. Anyone can be his follower, regardless of cast, creed, status, be they student, householder, recluse or renunciate. No matter what sect or religion the true seeker follows, eventually he comes under the guidance of Lord Dattatreya, the Eternal Spiritual Guide of all mankind.

Datta's presence is not limited to anyone country or sphere, given that He is the Guru of all Gurus, the all-seeing, all-powerful, ever-present link between God and Man. However, special places of worship (Datta Peethas) have grown up around sacred areas, where His presence is generally strongly felt by the sincere seeker of Datta. These places include Suchindram, Senthamangalam, Mount Girnar, Nagalapuram in Andhra, Prayag, Datta Guha in the Himalayas, Gulbarga -Ganagapura, Narasimhavadi in Maharastra, Quthambara near Poona, Avadumbara, Somapuram, Chandradronagiri and Datta Peetha at Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Ashrama, Mysore.

One notable aspect of these Datta Peethas is their indefinable but inseparable relationship with worship of God seeing as Mother, the Supreme Energy -Shakti. (Hence, Sri Swamiji's fierce aspect while Mother Chamunda.) Parasurama (eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu), approached Lord Dattatreya and was initiated into the intricacies of tips to worship the Mother (Shreevidya Upaasana), before undertaking intense penance to have the grace of the Divine Mother.

The Saandilya Upanishad declares very clearly that Lord Dattatreya (दत्तात्रेय) is the Supreme Reality and is the cause of everything that is certainly created. It states, "The Supreme Brahman performed penance which was of the nature of knowledge (jnyana), and desiring to become numerous, assumed the form of Dattatreya. From that form came out the three letters A, U, M; the three mystical names Bhuh, Bhuvah and Svah; the three-lined Gayatri; the three Vedas Rig, Yajur and Sama; the three Gods Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswara; the three castes Brahmana, Kshatriya and Vysya; and the three fires Gaarhapatya, Ashavaneeya and Dakshina."

"The lord is endowed with all wealth. He is all pervading and resides in the hearts of all beings. He is the great Maayavi, sporting with His own Maaya. He is Brahma. His Vishnu, He is Rudra. He is Indra and He is also all the gods of heaven and all other beings. He is East, He is West, He is North, He is South, He is below and He is above. He is everything. This is the glory of the form of Dattatreya."

Lord Dattatreya (दत्तात्रेय) came as the Supreme Philosopher (Avadhoota) so that the true meaning and purpose of Sacrifice (Tyaaga) can be revealed to mankind. Atri, His father, symbolizes penance (tapas) since described in the scriptures, and Anasooya represents freedom from jealousy. When penance and non-jealous nature unite in a single person, the highest truth emerges seeing as Lord Dattatreya. Seeing as ultimate self-sacrifice, the Supreme God gave Himself since Datta to Atri and Anasooya. Hence, "Datta" means not only "that which is given", but also seeing as the ideal of "giving" without desire for reward, i.e. selfless giving. The whole life of Dattatreya shows us that this "giving" selflessly is the true renunciation/sacrifice. The significance of this sacrifice is stated in the Dattatreya Upanishad where the Lord says, "Not by action, not by progeny, nor even by self, but by renunciation (tyaaga) alone is immortality attained. "Real renunciation is the giving up of "I" and mine, not the mere abandoning of duties. Living a selfless life require giving up one's ego. That is certainly what Lord Dattatreya describes given that true sacrifice.

Seeing as a Yoga-Avatar, Lord Dattatreya (दत्तात्रेय) teaches us to perform all our duties skillfully and diligently. Yoga does not require outside aids, nor does it demand great physical effort. All we have to do is change our outlook and transform our attitude to life. This "change" consist of giving up the idea or feeling of "doership", "enjoyership" and the resultant anxiety (and attachment ) for the fruits of our actions. By performing all our duties with this changed outlook, our mind will be freed from agitation and attain the restful state called "equanimity", or the state where there is no "mind". This is the state of Bliss that every soul ultimately aspires to. This is the state of Datta - the ultimate Gift of God.

Anusuya smiled to herself and reflected thus, "I am totally purified by the long association with the Holy Sage Atri. What harm can the God of lust ever do to me? So, I do fear nothing. While they sought food from my hand, I look upon them given that my children and not strangers and grown up men!" Her thoughts - the thoughts of a pious and chaste person - instantly became reality; the elderly guests became babies!

Sage Atri, on his return to the hermitage, saw his wife Anusuya fondling three babies. Anusuya said, "These children are the gift of God to us, who are childess so far". Sage Atri was overjoyed and named them Datta, which implies 'given'. At this, the three Gods reverted to their real forms and disclosed the truth. They extolled the power of chastity and purity of Anusuya, which vanquished the combined and colossal powers of all the three of them. Sage Atri and Anusuya prayed that they must remain given that their sons. They consented and the three Gods merged into one body. It is how Lord Dattatreya (दत्तात्रेय) incarnated.

माता कात्यायनी पूजा

20th oct.2013, 8am to 2pm Ghatkoper E


माँ दुर्गा के छठे स्वरूप का नाम कात्यायनी है। उस दिन साधक कामन 'आज्ञा' चक्र में स्थित होता है। योगसाधना में इस आज्ञा चक्र का अत्यंतमहत्वपूर्ण स्थान है। इस चक्र में स्थित मन वाला साधक माँ कात्यायनी के चरणों मेंअपना सर्वस्व निवेदित कर देता है। परिपूर्ण आत्मदान करने वाले ऐसे भक्तों को सहजभाव से माँ के दर्शन प्राप्त हो जाते हैं।

माँ का नाम कात्यायनी कैसे पड़ा इसकी भी एक कथा है- कत नामक एक प्रसिद्ध महर्षि थे।उनके पुत्र ऋषि कात्य हुए। इन्हीं कात्य के गोत्र में विश्वप्रसिद्ध महर्षिकात्यायन उत्पन्न हुए थे। इन्होंने भगवती पराम्बा की उपासना करते हुए बहुत वर्षोंतक बड़ी कठिन तपस्या की थी। उनकी इच्छा थी माँ भगवती उनके घर पुत्री के रूप मेंजन्म लें। माँ भगवती ने उनकी यह प्रार्थना स्वीकार कर ली।
कुछ समय पश्चात जब दानव महिषासुर का अत्याचार पृथ्वी पर बढ़ गया तब भगवान ब्रह्मा, विष्णु, महेश तीनों ने अपने-अपने तेज का अंश देकर महिषासुर के विनाश के लिए एक देवीको उत्पन्न किया। महर्षि कात्यायन ने सर्वप्रथम इनकी पूजा की। इसी कारण से यहकात्यायनी कहलाईं।

ऐसी भी कथा मिलती है कि ये महर्षि कात्यायन के वहाँ पुत्री रूप में उत्पन्न हुईथीं। आश्विन कृष्ण चतुर्दशी को जन्म लेकर शुक्लसप्तमी, अष्टमी तथा नवमी तक तीन दिन इन्होंने कात्यायन ऋषि की पूजा ग्रहण कर दशमी कोमहिषासुर का वध किया था।
शास्त्रों के मुताबिक जो भक्त दुर्गा मां की छठी विभूति कात्यायनी की आराधना करतेहैं मां की कृपा उन पर सैदव बनी रहती है। ऐसी मान्यता है कि कात्यायनी माता का व्रतऔर उनकी पूजा करने से कुंवारी कन्याओं के विवाह में आने वाली बाधा दूर होती है। 
माँ कात्यायनी अमोघ फलदायिनी हैं। भगवान कृष्ण को पतिरूप में पाने के लिए ब्रज कीगोपियों ने इन्हीं की पूजा कालिन्दी-यमुना के तट पर की थी। ये ब्रजमंडल कीअधिष्ठात्री देवी के रूप मेंभीप्रतिष्ठित हैं।

माँ कात्यायनी का स्वरूप अत्यंत चमकीला और भास्वर है। इनकी चार भुजाएँ हैं। माताजीका दाहिनी तरफ का ऊपरवाला हाथ अभयमुद्रा में तथा नीचे वाला वरमुद्रा में है। बाईंतरफ के ऊपरवाले हाथ में तलवार और नीचे वाले हाथ में कमल-पुष्प सुशोभित है। इनकावाहन सिंह है।

माँ कात्यायनी की भक्ति और उपासना द्वारा मनुष्य को बड़ी सरलता से अर्थ, धर्म, काम, मोक्ष चारों फलों की प्राप्ति हो जाती है। वह इस लोक में स्थित रहकर भी अलौकिक तेजऔर प्रभाव से युक्त हो जाता है।

नवरात्रि का छठा दिन माँ कात्यायनी की उपासना का दिन होता है। इनके पूजन से अद्भुतशक्ति का संचार होता है व दुश्मनों का संहार करने में ये सक्षम बनाती हैं। इनकाध्यानप्रातःकालमें करना होता है। प्रत्येक सर्वसाधारण केलिए आराधना योग्य यह श्लोक सरल और स्पष्ट है। माँ जगदम्बे की भक्ति पाने के लिए इसेकंठस्थ कर नवरात्रि में छठे दिनया हर दिनइसका जाप करनाचाहिए।

'या देवी सर्वभूतेषु शक्ति रूपेण संस्थिता। नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यैनमस्तस्यै नमो नम:॥
अर्थ : हे माँ! सर्वत्र विराजमान और शक्ति -रूपिणी प्रसिद्ध अम्बे, आपको मेराबार-बार प्रणाम है। या मैं आपको बारंबार प्रणाम करता हूँ।

इसके अतिरिक्त जिन कन्याओ के विवाह मे विलम्ब हो रहा हो,उन्हेइस दिन माँ कात्यायनी की उपासना अवश्य करनी चाहिए, जिससे उन्हे मनोवान्छित वर कीप्राप्ति होती है।

देवर्षि श्री वेदव्यास जी ने श्रीमद् भागवत के दशम स्कंध केबाईसवें अध्याय में उल्लेख किया है-
कात्यायनि महामाये महायोगिन्यधीश्वरि।
नन्दगोपसुतं देवि पतिं मे कुरु ते नम:॥

हे कात्यायनि! हे महामाये! हे महायोगिनि! हे देवि!नन्द गोप के पुत्र को हमारा पति बनाओ हम आपका अर्चन एवं वन्दन करते हैं। दुर्गासप्तशती में देवी के अवतरित होने का उल्लेख इस प्रकार मिलता है-

नन्दगोपगृहे जाता यशोदागर्भसम्भवा। मैं नन्द गोप के घर में यशोदा के गर्भ से अवतारलूंगी। श्रीमद् भावगत में भगवती कात्यायनी के पूजन द्वारा भगवान श्री कृष्ण कोप्राप्त करने के साधन का सुन्दर वर्णन प्राप्त होता है। यह व्रत पूरे मार्गशीर्ष (अगहन) के मास में होता है। भगवान श्री कृष्ण को पाने की लालसा में ब्रजांगनाओं नेअपने हृदय की लालसा पूर्ण करने हेतु यमुना नदी के किनारे से घिरे हुए राधाबाग़ नामकस्थान पर श्री कात्यायनी देवी का पूजन किया।

विवाह के लिये कात्यायनी मन्त्र-- ॐ कात्यायनी महामायेमहायोगिन्यधीश्वरि ! नंदगोपसुतम् देवि पतिम् मे कुरुते नम:।

माँ को जो सच्चे मन से याद करता है उसके रोग, शोक
संताप, भय
आदि सर्वथा विनष्ट हो जाते हैं। जन्म-जन्मांतर के पापों को विनष्ट करने के लिए माँकी शरणागत होकर उनकी पूजा-उपासना के लिए तत्पर होना चाहिए।

मां कात्यायनी को पसंद है शहद

मां कात्यायनी ने देवताओं की प्रार्थना सुनकर महिषासुर से युद्ध किया। महिसासुर सेयुद्ध करते हुए मां जब थक गई तब उन्होंने शहद युक्त पान खाया। शहद युक्त पान खानेसे मां कात्यायनी की थकान दूर हो गयी और महिषासुर का वध कर दिया। कात्यायनी कीसाधना एवं भक्ति करने वालों को मां की प्रसन्नता के लिएऔर मन-पसंदवर की प्राप्ति के लियेशहद युक्त पान अर्पित करना चाहिए। 

पांच प्रकार की मिठाई

मां कात्यायनी की साधना का समय गोधूली काल है। मान्यता है कि इस समय में धूप, दीप, गुग्गुल से मां की पूजा करने से सभी प्रकार की बाधाएं दूर होती है। जो भक्त माता कोपांच तरह की मिठाईयों का भोग लगाकर कुंवारी कन्याओं में प्रसाद बांटते हैं माताउनकी आय में आने वाली बाधा को दूर करती हैं और व्यक्ति अपनी मेहनत और योग्यता केअनुसार धन अर्जित करने में सफल होता है।

देवी कात्यायनी द्वारा सुरक्षा घेरा हटाने पर रावण मारा गया

देवी पुराण में उल्लेख मिलता है कि रावण भगवान शिव के साथ ही आदि शक्ति देवीकात्यायनी का भक्त था। रावण की भक्ति के कारण देवी अपनी योगनियों के साथ लंका मेंवास करती थीं जिससे रावण अजेय हो गया था।
देवी कात्यायनी की सुरक्षा प्राप्त होने के कारण रावण देवाताओं को कष्ट पहुंचानेलगा। देवताओं ने भगवान विष्णु से रावण से मुक्ति दिलाने की प्रार्थना की। भगवानविष्णु सोच में पड़ गये कि देवी कात्यायनी से सुरक्षा प्राप्त होने के कारण रावण कोमारना उनके लिए कठिन है। इस समस्या का हल निकालने के लिए भगवान विष्णु देवीकात्यायनी के पास गये। भगवान विष्णु ने कात्यायनी से कहा कि आपसे सुरक्षा प्राप्तहोने के कारण रावण निर्भय होकर अत्याचार कर रहा है। इसका अंत करना आवश्यक है इसलिएआप अपनी सुरक्षा हटा लीजिए। भगवान विष्णु की प्रार्थना से प्रसन्न होकर देवी ने कहाकि आप रामावतार लीजिए, इस अवतार में देवी लक्ष्मी सीता रूप में आपकी सहायता करेंगी।देवी लक्ष्मी मेरा ही स्वरूप हैं। जब रावण सीता का हरण करेगा तो वह मेरा अपमान होगाजिससे मैं अपनी सुरक्षा हटा लूंगी और आप रावण का वध करने में सफल होंगे। भगवान रामने रावण से युद्घ करने के पहले देवी कात्यायनी की आराधना की और देवी से रावण को दीगयी सुरक्षा हटाने की प्रार्थना की। भगवान विष्णु को दिये गये वचन के अनुसार देवीलंका त्याग कर अपने लोक में चली गयी और भगवान राम रावण का वध करने में सफल हुए।मान्यता यह भी है कि भगवान राम ने जिस वाण से रावण का वध किया था वह वाण राम कोदेवी कात्यायनी द्वारा प्रदान किया गया था।

Sarva Pitri Shraddha 2013

(19th Sept to 4th Oct. 2013)

 सर्व पित्र अमावस्या श्राद्ध

Shraddha श्राद्ध is completed for all those dead members of the family who died on Amavasya Tithi, Purnima Tithi and Chaturdashi Tithi.

If somebody is unable to carry out Shraddha on all Tithis then single Shraddha (for all) on this day will calm down all deceased souls in the family. If death anniversary of ancestors aren't recognized or forgotten then those Shraddhas can be performed on this Amavasya Tithi. That's why Amavasya Shraddha is often known as Sarvapitra Moksha Amavasya सर्व पित्र अमावस्या.

As well Mahalaya Shraddha for those who died on Purnima Tithi can also be done on Amavasya Shraddha Tithi and never on Bhadrapada Purnima. Although Bhadrapada Purnima Shraddha falls one day before Pitra Paksha but it isn't a part of Pitru Paksha. Usually Pitru Paksha starts on the next day to come of Bhadrapada Purnima Shraddha.

Shree Krishna Janmashtami festival 

Shree Krishna Janmashtami is the celebration of the birth of Lord Shri Krishna, the incarnation of Lord Vishnu, who's believed to have been born about 5 thousand years in the past in Mathura in 'Dwapar Yuga'. Krishna Janmashtami is also referred to as Ashtami Rohini, Srikrishna Jayanti, Krishnashtami, Saatam Aatham, Gokulashtami and typically simply as Janmashtami. It is essentially a Hindu festival. The pageant is usually noticed on Ashtami tithi, the eighth day of the darkish half or Krishna Paksha of the month of Bhadrapada in the Hindu calendar, when the Rohini Nakshatra is ascendant. This is often in the months of August and September in the Gregorian calendar. The pageant is well known with nice enthusiasm and vigor by Hindus throughout India and abroad. Individuals observe quick the entire day, sing hymns and conduct prayers at midnight to rejoice the delivery of Lord. Ras lila, dramatic enactments of the life of Krishna, are a particular function that is showcased in each a part of the nation, as it re-creates the flirtatious elements of Krishna's youthful days. One other attention-grabbing aspect of Krishna Janmashtami is the observe of Dahi-Handi. This sport portrays the playful and mischievous facet of Krishna, the place groups of younger males kind human pyramids to achieve a high-hanging pot of butter and break it.

In accordance with the Puranas Krishna took birth on the eighth lunar day (Ashtami) of the waning moon of the month of Smvana at midnight, upon the moon's entrance into Rohini asterism. This day is marked as Janmashtami. Krishna is among the most worshipped Gods in India and belongs to the Hindu Trinity. He's believed to be one of the eight incarnations of Lord Vishnu. The story of delivery of Krishna is an intriguing one. The story goes like this: One day Mother Earth was appalled by the number of sins that have been being committed on her surface. She went to Brahma that God of the Gods and appealed to him for help. Brahma, after listening to her, appealed to Lord Vishnu who mentioned that He would take beginning on earth and His avatar will destroy each form of sin that was being committed on earth then.

Throughout that point, Mathura was in depressing state as Kansa, brother of Devki, had put his father, King Ugrasen in jail and declared himself the new king. To put an finish to his evil rule, Lord Vishnu determined to take beginning within the human form. As such, on the marriage ceremony ceremony of Devki and Vasudev, there was a divine prophecy which proclaimed that Vasudeva's eighth son would kill Kansa. To guard himself, Kansa rushed to kill his sister however gave up the concept of killing after being assured by Vasudev that he will hand over all his children to Kansa. Kansa put his brother-in-law and sister in prison. Kansa killed all of the six infants as quickly as they were born. The seventh youngster (Balram) was saved as a result of divine intervention, when he was transferred from Devki's womb to that of Rohini's (other spouse of Vasudev).

As Devki conceived the eighth child, every part around was imbued with benevolence and majestic beauty. Lord Krishna was born within the divine form with lotus like eyes, his palms bearing the indicators of a lotus, whereas his sole has a swastika sign. He was adorned with jewels and was carrying a crown. Simply as he was born at midnight, a chain of events astonished Vasudev, when he noticed the gates of the cell stream open and all of the guards fast asleep. He immediately thought of Nand, his shut friend in Gokul and decided to hand over his youngster to him in an effort to save him from the clutch of Kansa. Crossing the River Yamuna, Vasudev reached Nand's residence and exchanged his son with Nand's daughter. Upon reaching the prison, the door received locked behind him and he was chained once more as if nothing occurred in between. The guards additionally woke up and after listening to the cry of the newborn, knowledgeable Kansa concerning the beginning of the eighth child. Just as Kansa rushed to kill the infant, it slipped out of his hand and flew in the direction of the sky, proclaiming that the annihilator of Kansa was born and was safe.

Hindus all over India observe quick on this day and recite the life story and teachings of Sri Krishna noted in the type of 'shlokas' in Bhagwad Gita. Temples of Lord Krishna are adorned most fantastically and children are adorned as Lord Krishna and Radhika, his religious beloved. Krishna Leela or the plays depicting scenes from Krishna's life, particularly childhood, are performed. At midnight, when Lord Krishna was believed to have taken delivery, an 'aarti' is carried out and people break their fasts by feasting on sweets and delicious dishes ready especially for the occasion. In lots of parts, the idol of baby Krishna is installed in a swing and provided sumptuous meals, particularly 'Makkhan' (butter) and 'Mishri' (sugar cubes).

How to perform Shiva puja

Shiv puja or Shiva ling connects a disciple considering the Supreme Organism – Lord (bhagawan) Shiva. The ling is the sign of Lord (bhagawan) Shiva and the ling worship makes the follower in thoughtful Lord (bhagawan) Shiva. The Lord (bhagawan) can't be described but still we are saying he's with out a start and an ending and is without a form. It is hard for a disciple to know this unformed nature. Consequently Lord (bhagawan) Shiva appeared in the form of Jyotirlinga before Brahma and Vishnu. The Ling thus is a logo of Lord (bhagawan) Shiva. All Ling pooja, step-by-step, needs the follower to the eternal fact – that he/she is a part of the Supreme Human being.

By preparatory the pooja, the follower needs a shower and wear freshly washed clothing. Hymns praising Lord (bhagawan) Shiva or the mantra ‘om namaha shivayaa’ are repeated to create a mood for worship. Then, the devotee sits in front of the ling and blows conch or ring bells. This means the start of the pooja.

First it is the panchamrit abhishek - the libation of 5 holy liquids over the ling. The libation can include a few five of the next – water from river Ganga, honey, sugarcane juice, milk, yogurt, ghee, seawater, coconut water or milk, fragrant oils, rose water or other precious liquids. Usually, only milk of cow is used. While pouring the liquid, om namah shivaya is uttered. Several devotees utter the Lord (bhagawan)’s name 108 times and many 1008 times. There is no such thing as a fixed rule.

Later than the panchamrit abhishek, the ling is cleaned with water from Ganga. (That is may not be potential always so just normal water.) After this the ling is muddy with sandalwood paste and is decked with flowers.

But if I communicate the language you recognize its impact shall be with doubt. Praying to those deities in a single's language will not help a lot but when one makes use of the phrases that they can perceive the consequence shall be instant.

These words are the Mantras advanced by Rishis and Yogis who actually prepared them and used them to show their worth. Over the ages these have helped 1000's of Sadhaks obtain even that which appeared unimaginable to them. Within doubt that whose chanting fulfils one's want is a Mantra.
