Creation

This illustration, drawn by Pandit Motilal Shastri, represents the process of creation and five dimensions of the universe.

The five orbs represent the five dimensions of the universe and in these dimensions reside the process of creation itself.

The first orb is that of Prajapati which is infused with prana (life-force), is svayambhu (created by itself) and abhu (the unchanging core of every existence).

Prajapati is the fundamental source of creation, and the first dimension of the universe. Prajapati is the first `individual`. The term `individual` refers to padartha or substance. Prana (life-force), mana (mind) and vak (sound) reside in Prajapati.

सृष्टि

विज्ञानचित्रावली में अनेक सुन्दर चित्रों के माध्यम से  वैदिक विज्ञान के विभिन्न पहलुओं का विश्लेषण किया गया है। चित्र देखने में  छोटा लगता है परन्तु वह अनेक महत्त्वपूर्ण विषयों को एक साथ बताता है। इस चित्र में सृष्टि प्रतिपादक जितने पारिभाषिक शब्द आये हैं उनके स्वरूप को यहाँ प्रस्तुत किया जा रहा है।

इस चित्र के दायें भाग में पाँच तत्त्वों का वर्णन है। ये हैं- ब्रह्मा, विष्णु, इन्द्र, अग्नि और सोम। ये पाँचों  तत्त्व अक्षर नाम से जाने जाते हैं। पं. ओझा ने इसे अक्षर कहा है। जिसका कभी नाश नहीं होता है वह अक्षर कहलाता है और जिसका नाश होता है वह क्षर है। इस चित्र के मध्यभाग में क्षर का स्वरूप है। ये क्रमशः क्षर नाम से हैं- प्राण, आप् (जल), वाक्,  अन्नाद (अन्न को खानेवाला) और अन्न । इसी को विकार-क्षर कहा जाता है।

Bharatavarsha – The India Narrative

Bharatavarsha – The India Narrative is the English translation of an extraordinary work of scholarship in Sanskrit, Indravijayah or `Indra’s Victory`, authored by renowned Vedic scholar and orator, Pandit Madhusudan Ojha. 

Bharatavarsha – The India Narrative is the English translation of an extraordinary work of scholarship in Sanskrit, Indravijayah or `Indra’s Victory`, authored by an equally remarkable Vedic scholar and orator, Pandit Madhusudan Ojha.                                                            

Indravijayah is one of his over 228 volumes written on various aspects of Vedic Vijnana which evidently has survived decades of neglect.  The present volume, translated into English by noted Sanskrit scholar, Prof. Kapil Kapoor, is an endeavour by Shri Shankar Shikshayatan to foreground not only the extraordinary interpretive talent and scholarship of Pandit Madhusudan Ojha but also his remarkable contribution towards reviving interest in the study of the Vedas.

Bharatavarsha – The India Narrative may not capture in entirety the magnificence and depth of knowledge contained in the original work of Pandit Madhusudan Ojha, but it certainly does open a beguiling window to the mysteries of life and creation through the absorbing tale of Indra, a divine personification of a supraphysical energy, and his exploits of courage and dominance.

The Realm of Supraphysics: Mind, Matter, Energy

Through The Realm of Supraphysics, Rishi Kumar Mishra attempts to capture an extremely large conceptual territory in which a wide array of forces operate and interact, giving birth to the individuals that comprise the cosmos and to the numerous universes of which our world is a small part.

The Realm of Supraphysics attempts to capture an extremely large conceptual territory in which a wide array of forces operate and interact, giving birth to the individuals that comprise the cosmos and to the numerous universes of which our world is a small part. This work does not cover the extensive and varied realm of supraphysics in full, because it is simply too vast to be grasped in a single volume. However, it does open a window onto an enchanting realm of unmanifest factors, forces and processes and their manifest functions and operations.
