Naga Panchami – Its importance

People worship snakes as the form of God on Naga Panchami day. This custom is being followed in many parts of the world even now. The names may be different but the ritual and the belief is the same. It is believed that this custom was in vogue even in ancient India and later on it spread to other parts of the globe.

Why, even in Indus civilization also this custom was found followed well by the people. Even in “Gruhya principles” the method of snake worship is given. The relation between the Indians and cobras is well documented. It has connection with Indian religion and fine arts.

Naga pooja is celebrated in Narayana temple in Nepal. There is a statue of Garuda in this temple. It sweats on shravana bahula panchami day every year. The priest of this temple dries it up with a towel and presents it to the king. It is believed that every thread in the towel has the power to remove the venom from the snakebite.

Chant of the Month – Nirvana or Atma shatkam – By Adi Sankaracharya

adi_sankaracharyaAdi Sankara is the most miraculous of God’s creation. Believed to be an incarnation of Shiva Himself, this great divine creation became an ascetic unbelievably in his very boyhood. When we think of this boy-monk and his eventual, extraordinary odyssey from Kaladi (in Kerala) to Kashmir winning hearts and souls all the way, composing hymns to gods and goddesses, convincing stalwarts and propounding a faith unifying the theory-torn and confused to his point of view, or to be precise, His deity, we all must accept the creator’s omnipotence. He is what Carlyle called vates sacer- the sacred seer and, in mundane parlance, hero as man of letters too. The pristine language, Sanskrit, with its melody, flexibility and conceptualization (if we believe in Benjamim Lee Whorf’s hypothesis of the origin of language) may be viewed as God’s own tongue, Dev Bhasha. Adi Sankara used, among several other things, this sacred language to sing the creator’s praise. His propitiatory, invocative verses stay everlastingly on the lips of the devout.

Stuti, Stawam, Stotram are all terms in devotional compositions relating to songs in praise of the Supreme Being. In another type of classication, these are described in terms of the length or number of lines in the composition; Panchaka (for five) shatka (six) ashtaka for (eight) and so on. Here is one f the most often recited praise address to Goddesss Lakshmi, the deity of opulence and wealth.

Kanakadhara stawam

The propounder and exegete of advaita, monism, Adi Sankara, composed extempore umpteen stotras and stawams in praise of various deities on various occasions. These compositions are not premeditated. They are fountain springs activated by devotion of the highest order. These are a vast treasure highly venerated for their divinely illumined vision as also for their extreme felicity of expression. The most sublime ascetic uttered kanakadhara stawam on the spur of the moment. Once a poor woman whom he begged for alms gave him a gooseberry (amla), all that she had, explaining her poverty. Moved, the great sage and seer sang this praise of the Goddess Lakshmi. The moment the hymn came to a close there was a rain of gold, which made the woman dumb with overflowing devotion for the Supreme Mother.
