Dimensions in modern science mostly refer to spatial dimensions. Some consider time as a dimension, some consider gravity as a dimension and the search is on for many other dimensions, everything is up for debate. To note though, all of them are only spatial dimensions. To note also, any location in space is considered to be adequately represented by 3 dimensions and hence modern science has moved on for the search for… Read More

In this blog of the series of exploring science in ancient scriptures, I will talk about the definition of “work done” as per these scriptures. In the previous blog, I had defined Logic or saMkhya and explained how an “adaptive algorithm” was established based on the series of changes and how this adaptive algorithm drives the establishing of the logic during the rise of the self path of existence. Once established, I… Read More

This is the first blog related to the topic “Exploring science in ancient scriptures“. The ancient science deals with a lot more than just science visible in space, time and matter. But, obviously anything beyond space, time and matter is beyond the grasp of the current capability of our brains. Hence, when any document starts with the “inconceivable” or the “incomprehensible”, our brain freezes and we tend to classify such topics as… Read More

Finishing up the Kala Bhairava translation for the 7th and the 8th verses. The 7th verse translates as this: aTTahAsabhinnapadmajANDskoshasaMtatiM druShTipAtanaShTapApajAlamugrashAsanam aShTasiddhidAyakaM kapAlamAlikAdharaM kAshikapuradhinAthakAlabhairavam bhaje aTTa + hAsa + bhinna + padma + jANDa + kosha + saMtatiM = vibrant + buoyancy + breaking + (concentric circle) + animal + container + a continuous line druShTipAta + naShTa + pApa + jAlam + ugra + shAsanam = wisdom + loss + deficient… Read More

The Kala Bhairava till now seems to have said this, as translated in the previous blogs, here, here and here: “The prime energy used, pure, unrestrained concentric cycles, giving up resistance, that runs through everything like a blemish, thanks to the environment, beginning with the questioning thought that joins together the multitude, I salute that clean fist full of time, owned by the manifested of the time unmanifested. Freeing the remote, appearances… Read More

Continuing from my previous blog of Kala Bhairava Ashtakam – Verse 1, going on to the next verse. In this verse again, translations miss out the subtle meanings in each of these informative lines. bhAnukotibhasvaraM bhavAbdhitArakaM paraM nIlakaNTamIpsitArthadAyakaM trilocanam kalakalamMbujAkshashUlamaksharaM kAshikApuradhinAthakAlabhairavam bhaje bhAnu+koti+bhasvaram+bhAvabdhi+tArakaM+paraM appearance + highest + shining + ocean of worldly existence + freeing + remote nIla+kaNTam + ipsita + artha + dAyakaM + tri + lochanam dark+ noise + impulse +… Read More

Translation: Kala – time, Bhairava – unmanifested, Ashtakam – 8 verses. While I agree time is formidable, especially when things don’t go our way, I don’t believe “Kala Bhairava” translates to “Time the formidable”, I think it translates to “Time unmanifested”. These verses basically talks about the “unmanifested” that has manifested itself as time. It is strange how we take anything and everything and give it a human form and imprint human characteristics… Read More
