Transformation of Sati into Shakti Peethas

In Ancient time-wheel, Sati, wife of lord Shiva, was the daughter of king Daksha. Daksha never liked lord Shiva, so once he organized a big Yagya (Havan) and invited everyone but left lord Shiva uninvited intentionally.

Sati took it lightly and asked lord Shiva to in Yagya together. Shiva already knew the intention of Daksha, so he said, “We will not go uninvited.” Still Satil took it lightly and went alone in Yagya (leaving Shiva behind). Reaching to her father (king Daksha), she said, “Why didn’t you invite my husband?” At this king Daksha insulted the name of lord Shiva in whole assembly where all Gods, Goddesses and other Deities were present.

Sati couldn’t bear the insult of her husband, immediately she jumped in the Havan-Kund and died. When lord Shiva knew all the matter, he sent Veerbhadra, his guard. Veerbhadra killed Daksha. Lord Shiva then took the dead-body of Sati on his shoulder and kept on crying, roaring and moving in anger.

Lord Vishnu knew what could happen if lord Shiva lost himself in intense grief — so he used his Sudarshan Chakra and cut the dead-body of Sati that was hanging on Shiva’s shoulder in various parts. Wherever each part fell, turned into Shakti Peeth. ( See Image, Shiva carrying dead-body of Sati on his shoulder. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sati_shiva_bishnu.jpg )

Golden Rule Of Three Years To Get Success

Give yourself completely to whatever you like for three years -- let it be your career, business, health or any other thing of life. Why three years, exactly? Because what is the advantage of sticking to something which isn't giving any result. Time is precious, don't waste if the results aren't coming. Why not less than three years? If we spread these three years for success, we can assume first year is dominated by getting knowledge of the field, second year dominated by execution, and the third year comes the maturity where knowledge and experience of execution strike for success.  As an exeption we can stretch these three years into five or six years -- only when there are uncontrollable issues like of health or circumstantial issues.

108 Names Of Shri Surya From Mahabharata

Surya (Sun) is the most important planet as well as a deity. Worshiping Surya increases prana-shakti (life-force), it rays destroy many diseases and it is the biggest source of never ending energy. There is a Strota, called Surya-Kavach, it is chanted for protection, as a deity his protection is very strong — remember the case of Karna in Mahabharata, he was invincible due to Surya-Kavach. This Surya-Kavach wasn’t as it is shown in movies, it was a Mantrik protection which Karna had and on Indra request he promised not to use it in the war. We take note of popular deities, but Surya as a deity is not lesser than others — though there are less Sanskrit literature on Surya (as I know), but whatever it is, like Surya Kavach and Aditya Hriday Strota, I think, is very potent. English Name | हिंदी नाम 1) Om Suryaay Namah | ॐ सूर्याय नम: 2) Om AryMane Namah | ॐ अर्यमणे नम:

Mantra To Remove Poverty & Attract Lakshmi On Diwali

 Here are few things that previous generations used to do on Diwali. Mantra to remove poverty: This mantra is often chanted to beat away the poverty from the home. This is ritualistic where people imagine “poverty” and other kinds of negativity are going away and home is getting purer and cleaner to attract goddess Lakshmi. काने भेड़े दुखदायी दरिद्र तू मेरे घर से जा अब भाग ॥ देवी भगवती लक्ष्मी आई, तज घर मेरा और जा भाग ॥ डंडा बजाऊ मार लगाऊ नहीं तो जा अब भाग ॥ लक्ष्मी जी का वास हो गया मेरे यहाँ, तेरा नहीं निस्तार ॥ Mantra to attract Lakshmi:

Organising the mind and creating something wonderful

 I work from home as many people do. When I get up in the morning, I often get confused either to take a bath, a walk, watch tv — or do my work. And when I open my PC, still there are so many things: backing up files, mainly databases, managing usernames and passwords, reading emails, and there is always a chance to get lost in social media, facebook, twitter and other things. After an hour or two, I find that I’ve messed up everything. But this must not go everyday….. So I need to use a willpower? Kind of motivation, inspiration that I need to do only prioritise work: what is important, first; second important, second; third important, third; and so on. But in my case, will power often fails — it makes me inflexible, arrogant, dry of ideas and playfulness. And I find myself just doing nothing, it's just willpower and determination that break my back.
