Astrology: What is Mina rAshi?

Like many other terminologies, “rAshi” is also completely misunderstood in modern astrology. It typically is used to indicate one of the 12 (zodiac?) segments and hence starts the concept of janma rAshi or the sign under which you are born etc. So, minA rAshi is commonly translated as the pisces zodiac sign. I do not… Read More

How obscurity of astronomy can help understand concepts

As I had indicated in my previous blog “Why we should not be eager to become a space faring species?“, we should let the obscurity in the knowledge of the objects external to our earth remain obscure. As I had indicated, the tools that we have currently to detect and understand the various observable parameters… Read More

Ancient Science: Explaining Samadhi

Samadhi is another of those loosely used terms, attributed to sages and seers and looked on with awe and described without any understanding of what the term means. I should say that I belonged to the same class of people. But, like all the other explanations I have tried to give in this blog related… Read More

Ancient Science: Which direction am I moving?

Just like astrology, mantras, sthotrams and many other ancient concepts, these also have degraded over time and taken on a totally different form and meaning in modern times and… Read More

As I had written in the blog on “Explaining the physics of motion“, the motion that we all experience and play with, i.e., movement from one physical location to another physical location is similar to movement within an airplane while the airplane itself is moving towards a destination. Our motion within the airplane makes no… Read More

What is common sense?

Wikipedia defines common sense as: “Common sense is sound, practical judgment concerning everyday matters, or a basic ability to perceive, understand, and judge in a manner that is shared by (i.e. common to) nearly all people.” What is forgotten here is, this “practical sense” is actually shared equally by all living beings. We do not… Read More

Ancient Science: viShNu, kRShNa and rAmA

As I have indicated in my book “A research of Shiva: The Enigma“, Shiva, Isha, Rudra and the various other references used to “indicate Shiva” are completely different from each other. The reason all these tend to indicate the same concept is because of the projection of the higher dimensions onto a lower dimension of… Read More
