The concept of multiple universes

9000 years ago, Hindus (Read "ppl of Indus Valley n not just the sanatan dharm") knew about multiple universes. I will cite two examples below.

If u read Devi Purana, it is mentioned that there are many instances of Brahma (the creator), Vishnu (the caretaker) and Shiva (the destroyer)... all created by God (Read "Devi Ma") to take care of each universe.

The second example relates to Ramayan, the epic that needs no introduction.

According to folktales related to Ramayan, when Hanuman saw the god of death in Ayodhya, he warned the latter and asked him to stay away from the province. But a body created means a body that'll die. Rama had to leave the body.

To facilitate the transition, Rama's ring fell down a hole in ground. Rama then asked Hanuman to go fetch the ring. By the time he returned, Rama allowed god of death to relieve him of his body.

What happened down the earth is also interesting. Hanuman chased the ring as it rolled down the hole. It went and stopped in a mountain full of similar rings.

Surprised, he asked someone nearby, "which one is the ring of Lord Rama?" The person said all of them belong to Lord Rama and that there were rings from different time phases (Read "different universes"). Each time a ring falls, a Hanuman would ask him the same question.

Hanuman understood that Lord Rama tricked him. He also understood that his was not the only Rama. That he was not the only Hanuman in existence. He understood there are many universes and life is spread or rather replicated among them. He stopped grieving and returned to the surface to continue his work of protecting people.

The two examples I mentioned above indicate that the concept of multiple universes existed much before people came to know that Earth is not the center of universe but a part of it. Any comments?

Best app for Android phones - Clean Master from Cheetah Mobile

After five years of testing different multipurpose apps for Android maintenance, I realize Clean Master from Cheetah Mobile is the best maintenance app for Android phones. Not only maintenance, Clean Master offers you much more than you can expect from a single app.

For a while, it felt the "All in One for Android" is good. But turned out it leaves out add-ins even after you remove it. What is available in single code in Clean Master of Cheetah Mobile, is available as add-ins in All in One app for Android. When you uninstall All in One app, the add-ins continue to run in RAM. I could not find any method to remove them as they were not visible in any App Managers. I had to do a factory reset and that was when my doubts were removed and I acknowledged Clean Master of Cheetah Mobile is the best option for Android phones.

Analysis of Mahabharata Characters - Bhishma

Bhishma is one of the powerful characters of the epic, Mahabharata that contains and shows a pious way of life to the mortals living on earth. I am starting this Analysis of Mahabharata Characters with Bhishma as he is the oldest character in the epic/saga and has tremendous influence on the other characters of Mahabharata. Bhishma was the son of king Shantanu and Ganga (the river Ganges in female form). Bhishma was considered one of the eight Vasus (rishis) who had to take birth on earth due to a curse. Before we analyze the character, let us take a quick look at the story of Bhishma according to the Mahabharata.
Background Of Bhishma Bhismha is considered one of the eight Vasus who stole a cow named Kamadhenu from a sage. When the sage cursed them to take birth as humans, all Vasus asked for his forgiveness. The sage, for seven Vasus who helped the main Vasu to steal the cow, reduced the curse to death just after birth. However, the main Vasu who actually stole the cow was to stay …

Significance or Meaning of Swaha and Ithi in Sanskrit Mantras

You might have noticed that all mantras begin with the sound of "OM". What you might have ignored or failed to notice that mantras in Sanskrit end with "ithi" or "swaha". Some of you end mantras with just a "namah".

Not to scare you, but if you fail to use "ithi" at end of each mantra or at the very end of any stotra (hymn), the mantra & related offering (sacrifice or prasadam) doesn't reach the god being prayed.

The word "ithi" marks the end of mantra, and urges gods to accept whatever you are offering.

The word "swaha" is used more in havans (rituals were you put offerings/prasad directly into fire). Since people put offerings into fire while saying "swaha", many of us associate it with "destruction". When anyone says "sab kuch swaha ho gaya (everything became swaha)", it does and should not be concluded that he or she lost things. It is a wrong notion that associates "sw…
