How the King of Kamrup took initiation from Sri Sankardev | Sankardev debate with the Shakta Priests
The life of Sri Shankar Dev was meant for a divine purpose. The challenges of his life serve as lessons to the followers of Dharma and Truth. When the devotees of the Lord are challenged, the Lord transforms Himself into time, place and circumstances and stands rock solid by the side of His devotees. It is God alone who transforms challenges into opportunities. The life of Sri Shankar Deva is a testimony to this dictum.
The Great Indian Epic (Itihasa) of Ramayana and Mahabharata | What do the Ramayana and Mahabharata tell us?
The Ramayana and the Mahabharatha are beacons for the world. Unless one imbibes the principles and value systems enjoined in these works of wonder, it is impossible to dream of perfection. Perfection in man, simply means to perfect oneself in Truth , in character and Moral values. The Framework of Sanatana Dharma stands on the two pillars of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata and cemented by the mortar of the Bhagavad Gita.
It preserves the hymns of many of the most famous and legendary of the sages of India which includes Vashishta and Vishwamitra. These sages were as renowned as Sri Rama, Sri Krishna or the Buddha, who appeared at a later date. These sages outlived many blessed personalities of the yore and are also stated to be living even at this current time of Kaliyuga, in their ethereal forms, accessible to people who have the right qualifications to contact them. This is not myth, but a blaring truth.
The life of sages can be eye-openers. Especially to those who seek meaning in life. For those who wish to awaken, it is necessary that such people delve deep into the life of sages from the Sanatana Dharmic tradition. It is Dharma alone that has encouraged sages to set examples for the coming generation. To take a chapter of two from the life of sages, is to give oneself the taste of elixir that grants immortality.
