Two Topics in the Veda :






 A human being has a number of desires. 

And the desires of a given person need not be the desires of another person. 

Further, a person who has a desire now many not have the same desire later even though it was not fulfilled. 

He may grow out of it. 

Thus, these desires (kamah) are many and varied (binnah). 

In order to fulfill these desires, a person makes attempts according to his skill and knowledge, but still, there are many hidden variables. 

To control the hidden variables one resorts to prayer This kind of prayer, a specific prayer to get a given result is mentioned in the first part of the Veda There are many such prayers for the many different ends. 

Finally, at the end, the Veda has a topic called Vedanta. 

This topic deals with the desirer. 

It is important to understand the difference between these two topics. 

One deals with your desires; it tries to help you to fulfill your desires. 

The other deals with the very desirer. 

Why am I a desirer? 

Even if I fulfill a few desires, I am not going to say that I have fulfilled all my desires. 

There were desires that I could not fulfill when I was young. 

Even now there are desires that I cannot fulfill-desires like those for an ideal society, an ideal disposition of a friend or spouse that you always dream of These desires are never met with and perhaps will never be met with. 

One can never relax saying, “I have fulfilled all my desires.”

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 …
