Sri Madhvacharya :3.


"A true saint" : 


Sri Madhvacharya, right from his childhood, showed signs of divinity. He was completely detached towards mundane worldly pleasures. This was natural to him as he was always immersed in meditation of the Almighty. At a very young age he made his mind to renounce this world and accept sainthood. This, he thought, is the best way to fulfill his life's objective of uplifting the noble souls by imparting divine knowledge. Though decimating evil forces is the prime objective in all his incarnations he knew that by the will of God, Goddess Durga will incarnate in the near future for that purpose. Thus, unlike his previous two incarnations where he single handedly destroyed most of the evil forces he chose to launch a peaceful attack through his works and discourses.


"An ardent devotee" :


Madhvacharya's devotion towards Vishnu is unflinching and insurmountable. He is the best example of a true devotee of the Almighty. He doesn't even spend a moment without remembering the Almighty. He asks for nothing except service of the God. He is the perfect follower of Bhagavata Dharma. In his eyes, Vishnu is the supreme master. All others are His servants. He composed and devotionally sang several songs and stotras praising Vishnu’s supremacy. When he was touring from place to place his entourage would dance and proceed in  front of him singing his melodious compositions in praise of Vishnu.


"An extraordinary thinker" :


He was an extraordinary thinker who revolutionized the Vedic thinking by his fresh and sound
ideas supported by stern logic which cut across all kinds of dogmatism. He was firmly set against
the notion of accepting doctrines just because of their wide public acceptance. He refused to
accept that it is possible to derive a meaningful spiritual system based on any but the
apaurusheya texts and their adjuncts. At the same time he gave due importance to perception as
a valid means of knowledge. He also dismissed claims that only part of the Vedas are useful, and
showed that even the so-called karma-kanda portions of them are only meant to worship Hari.
We find in some of his thoughts answers to even the most demanding problems of the Modern
Science. His definition of an atom as an indivisible particle which has at least 10 parts greatly
appeals to the modern logical mind. The concept of sakshin and vishesas are some of his
significant, unique and original contributions to the Indian philosophical thought.

Poojya Swami Bhoomananda Tirthaji’s Main Ashram : "Narayanashrama Tapovanam"

The word 'Ashram' (in Sanskrit) stands for an abode of learning or education. It is a pity that even after 50 years of independence; many of us are prone to associate constricted religiosity with the word and dispose of the institutions under such name as engaged in some sectarian practices. Of course, it is only a corollary of the widespread ignorance with which we often stamp our great Bharatiya (Indian) culture as 'Hindu Religion'.

More than the theoretical knowledge of different subjects, education in our country always meant man-making -- purification, fortification and transformation of personality in the holy association of the Teacher, so that the student would become fit to course victoriously through the vicissitudes of life and attain fulfillment.

And Ashrams were the institutions imparting such education. The most important factor underlying the legendary greatness of ancient Bharat was these honored seats of learning - the Ashrams - where the saintly Teacher…

WHERE IS OUR BHARATHEEYA SAMSKARAM?

Rediscover Bharatham!!! Our Father of Nation Mahatma's dream was "Ramarajya in BAharatham". The word secularism may oppose the term used 'Ramarajyam', the term means a land of TRUTH AND VALUES. The Upanishadic culture is the culture of our country. The training given to the citizens of Bharatham to live this Sanatana Dharma is called Hinduism. Bharatham is a Spiritual country. BHA means Knowledge and ratham is one who lives, hence Bharatham means a country where people are living in knowledge. Modernisation, Globalisation , our political parties, our Rulers, our system, our education, parents, new generation, media, our dress code, blind imitation of western countries and many more causes of this. Science and technology is boon for good people, where demonic citizens take advantage and exploit these benefits into criminal activities, we had experience since Atom was mis-used, now the demonic activities is continuing.
Rulers keep open their eyes and ears open and …
