A traditional Jewish wedding is full of meaningful rituals, symbolizing the beauty of the relationship of husband and wife, as well as their obligations to each other and to the Jewish people. The following guide explains the beauty and joy of these the Jewish wedding traditions. The Wedding Day The dawning wedding day heralds the happiest and holiest day of one's life. This day is considered a personal Yom Kippur for the chatan Hebrew for groom and kallah bridefor on this day all their past mistakes are forgiven as they merge into a new, complete soul.
Both questions are answered here: Meanings of the Dialogue Extra Comments: The Supreme cannot be defined and since He is the very substratum of all qualities, He cannot be denominated by any name, or indicated by any term, or defined in any language, or ever expressed, even vaguely, in any literary form.
He is the very illumining Principle of Consciousness that illuminates all experiences. And yet He has many manifestations and, therefore, He can have infinite names in terms of His manifestations. Definitions should directly describe the thing defined, and here we have a thousand indirect definitions with which the Real, the Infinite is being indicated in terms of the unreal and the finite.
They were collected and strung together into a joyous Hymn to Vishnu, a garland of devotion and reverence, by the poet-seer Vyaasa. Since each of them is thus an indicative definition of the unknown in terms of the known, each term here is believed to rocket-us up into the realms of the divine experience, only when we have lifted our minds towards it through contemplation.
In the Kali-Santarana Upanishad, which is one of the minor Upanishads, we find the great devotee Naarada approaching Brahmaaji to enquire what is the way out for man to evolve in Hindu weeding ceremony hard days of extrovertedness, which is quite natural and unavoidable in the Iron-age Kaliyuga.
So all living creatures are fit for this easy path. In the Trikutaachala lake, the elephant that was caught by the crocodile is described as having been saved by the Lord Gajendra Moksha.
The story of Jadabharata is yet another example. Sankara in his commentary describes here Japa as comprehensive of all the three types. Vishnu Sahasranaama can be employed in performing Japa of all these three kinds. Exactly 90 names have been repeated in this Great Hymn; and of them, 74 are repeated twice, 14 are repeated thrice, and again 2 of them are found to have been repeated four times.
Sometimes, the terms are repeated as such Vishnu- Vishnu, Siva-Siva etc. These need not be considered as a defect, since this Hymn is a chant of His Glory. In a chant of glory stuti repetitions are acceptable-it is but a style of the emotional heart to repeat its declarations of love.
The extra 31 Names are to be considered each as an adjective qualifying Viseshana the immediately following noun. When one makes Archanaa to the Lord the correct dative case is to be used. There are 20 double-names in the first Names and 11 double-names in the second half of the chant.
There is one indeclinable Avyaya word used, and it th should be used in the dative for Archanaa as Sanaat Namah; so too the th Name in the chant, being a plural noun, should be used in Archanaa as Sadbhyo Namah.
It will also be found, as we study the significances of these Divine names, that Vyaasa has employed sometimes masculine gender, on other occasions feminine gender and some other times even neuter gender. Wherever it is masculine.
Glory or power devataa that is manifest everywhere, and when the term is in neuter gender, it means Pure Brahman, the infinite Reality. This Archanaa is generally performed by devotees daily; if this is not convenient they perform this worship at least on their own birth-days, on eclipse days and on the day on which the Sun moves from one zodiac to another the Samkraanti-day.
This performance has been prescribed by the Sastra for warding off troubles arising from the position of planets, anger of the rulers, incurable diseases and ruthless enemies.
The highest effect is for purifying the mind and thus gaining more and more inner-poise for the Saadhaka in meditation. This is technically called as Anga-Nyaasa and Kara-Nyaasa. This is a method by which the seeker with wilful thoughts and deliberate physical signs sanctifies himself to be a Divine Temple and installs various sacred deities in himself.
This helps the student to realise that though he is worshipping the Lord as a Goal or an Ideal other than himself bheda or anyain fact, he is to seek his identity with no traces of differentiation Abheda or Ananyabetween himself and the Lord.
The final realization is a perfect identity indicated in the Mahaavaakya.This section is devoted for questions about marriage in Ukraine, the emigration immigration process and Ukrainian culture and traditions.
