Significance of the Kartik Month

kartik
The importance of the Kartik month and looks at why lighting lamps is so significant in this month.This is a culture where we did not do anything that is not scientific and naturally for the enhancement of the human being, so that they can reach towards their ultimate well being or liberation. In this process, the lighting of the lamp is significant because in our visual experience, it is light which makes us see. It plays a significant role in our perception of the world around us. If there is no light, there is no experience of anything around us. Light is important in this context. But the significance of this day is not just about light or about lighting a lamp.

This phase of the year, which is Dakshinayana, is referred to as the Sadhana pada. The Kartik Masam or Kartik month is very significant because this is when the year is starting to move into what is called Kaivalya pada. In terms of sadhana, Dakshinayana is for purification, Uttarayan is for enlightenment. The Sadhana pada was the time of plowing, seeding and cultivating. Now, the time for the inner harvest of whatever sadhana you have done has come.

The lamp is indicative of enlightenment, awareness, consciousness and ultimate liberation. All this is symbolized with the lamps that we light.
This is not just about lighting one lamp. Usually, the tradition said that as the Kartik month comes, you must double the lamps that you light because one thing is, the day has become shorter so you need a little more light to do your daily activity. Another thing is to indicate that you are multiplying the light in your life.

नेवी के 156 बम हिला तक नहीं सके थे, श्रीकृष्ण के इस मंदिर को…

Dwarka

भारत की पश्चिम दिशा में हिंदू धर्म के चारों धामों में से एक द्वारकानगरी की। यह गुजरात प्रदेश के काठियावाड क्षेत्र में अरब सागर के द्वीप पर स्थित है। द्वारका का धार्मिक, पौराणिक एवं ऐतिहासिक महत्व है। ऐसी मान्यता है कि मथुरा छोड़ने के बाद अपने परिजनों एवं यादव वंश की रक्षा हेतु भगवान श्रीकृष्ण ने भाई बलराम तथा यादववंशियों के साथ मिलकर द्वारकापुरी का निर्माण विश्वकर्मा से करवाया था। यदुवंश की समाप्ति और भगवान श्रीकृष्ण की जीवनलीला पूर्ण होते ही द्वारका समुद्र में डूब गई मानी जाती है। इस क्षेत्र का प्राचीन नाम कुशस्थली था। धार्मिक दृष्टि से द्वारका को सप्तपुरियों में गिना जाता है।

पाकिस्तान ने बरसाए थे 156 बम, फिर भी मंदिर का बाल-बांका नही हुआ

पश्चिम भारत के महत्वपूर्ण तीर्थस्थल और चार धामों में से एक द्वारकाधीश मंदिर पर 7 सितंबर, 1965 को पाकिस्तान की नेवी ने जमकर बम बरसाए थे। मंदिर पर 156 बम फेंके गए थे, लेकिन फिर भी ये बम मंदिर का बाल-बांका न कर सके। मंदिर पर 156 बम फेंके जाने की बात खुद पाकिस्तान के रेडियो में प्रसारित की गई थी। रेडियो में पाक नेवी के सैनिकों ने हर्षोल्लास के साथ कहा था… ‘मिशन द्वारका कामयाब, हमने द्वारका का नाश कर दिया। हमने कुछ ही मिनटों के अंदर मंदिर पर 156 बम फेंककर मंदिर को तबाह कर दिया’। हालांकि यह पाक नैवी की गलतफहमी मात्र थी। दरअसल, जब नैवी ने सब-मरीने से मंदिर पर बम बरसाने शुरू किए, उस समय समुद्र किनारे विशाल पत्थरों की ओट थी। हमले के समय ओट और ऊंची हो चुकी थी, जिसके चलते कई बम मंदिर तक पहुंच ही नहीं सके और पानी में डिफ्यूज हो गए थे। हालांकि मंदिर का कुछ हिस्सा जरूर खंडित हो गया था, जिसका बाद में पुनरुद्धार कर दिया गया।
वर्तमान में स्थित द्वारका, गोमती द्वारका के नाम से जानी जाती है। यहां आठवीं शताब्दी में सनातन धर्म की रक्षा और प्रसार के लिए आदि शंकराचार्य ने द्वारकापीठ की स्थापना की थी। आधुनिक खोजों में भी इस क्षेत्र में रेत एवं समुद्र के अंदर से प्राचीन द्वारका के अवशेष प्राप्त हुए हैं। द्वारका की स्थिति एवं बनावट समुद्र के बीच द्वीप पर बने किले के समान है। वर्तमान में गोमती द्वारका और बेट द्वारका एक ही द्वारकापुरी के दो भाग हैं। गोमती द्वारका में ही द्वारका का मुख्य मंदिर है, जो श्री रणछोड़राय मंदिर या द्वारकाधीश मंदिर के नाम से प्रसिद्ध है।

पवित्र एवं पावन गंगाजल उचित मुल्य पर घर बेठे प्राप्त ही करने के लिये सम्पर्क् करें।
