  • What is SARAVANABAVA yanthra used for?

    I have been told its for Kuja dasa.

    I would like to know any other details (if there are any specific reasons why it is to be worn ect.) as there is almost nothing on the internet about Saravanabava yanthra or even about the chanting of "Om Saravanabhava"

  • HELP - page display order?

    In a blog - I have 5 pages, A, B, C, D and E

    I always want page A to be on top but as and when I add new pages (say F, G etc) they become the first post and 'post A' gets pushed to the back. For example, if Page A carry a list of titles of the other pages, I would want it to be displayed first.

    How do I keep 'post A' as the first/main page without it getting pushed every time I load a new article/page???????

    Thanks in advance

  • Energized Rudraksha Beads?

    Online sites charge huge amounts for rudraksha beads saying they are energized. My question is, as Rudraksha bead holds the medicinal and wonder values of it by its own as the legend says, to get the benefit of the rudraksha bead, is it really necessary to energize it? If the one who wears it is a vegetarian and takes care of it without taking it to funerals and praying for lord shiva and so on, isnt that good enough?

  • What is the "lunar day"?

    In hindu festival notes I have seen things like this -

    13 days after the lunar day - or 10 days after the lunar day .. does this mean

    13 days after the FULL MOON?

    eg. So does this mean that Maha Sivarathri day will be 13 days from the full moon of February (march 2nd)

    In counting this - do you count the full moon day as 1 - or the day after the full moon as 1st?

    In other words, is it always after 15 days of the full moon that you get the day without the moon?

    and on the 16th day, the moon starts showing again?

  • Statues in a Hindu Temple?

    I love to go to Hindu temples but dont understand it much. There are so many statues of Gods in Hindu temples. Do you go to each and every God and worship or is it that you go to only one God that you have been assigned in some way? Also I have been to a Kali amman temple which has a very tall pillar like thing erected as soon as you enter. have seen it in a Vishnu temple also. What does that symbolize? Also what does breaking coconuts mean? Is it a way of making a wish?
