Conference on Ancient Indian Wisdom at SMS: Celebrating 75th Anniversary Year of Indian Independence

http://www.icon.smsvaranasi.com

#icon2021_sms

SMS Varanasi is Celebrating 75th Anniversary Year of Indian Independence by organising 9th International Conference on topic ‘Ancient Indian Wisdom: Panacea for Sustainable Well-Being’ to be held on April 24-25, 2021. A film by SMS Varanasi BA-Honours Mass Communication Students Ashish & Aman.

India is a diverse country, a fact that is visibly prominent in its people, culture and climate. From the eternal snows of the Himalayas to the cultivated peninsula of far South, from the deserts of the West to the humid deltas of the East, from the dry heat and cold of the Central Plateau to the cool forest foothills, Indian lifestyles clearly glorify the geography. Being a spiritual person and putting vermilion on forehead and doing the namaskara with joint hands is the most basic etiquette to symbolise and figure out that you are particularly from India.

A unique system bound with immense treasures of intricate knowledge of science. Let’s discuss some of the knowledge points from our Ancient Indian Wisdom: Temples are found deliberately at a place where the positive energy is available abundantly from the magnetic and electric wave. The idol of God is set in the core center of the temple, known as “Garbhagriha”. Ideally, the structure of the temple is built after the idol has been placed in a high positive wave centric place.

This moolasthanam is the place where earth’s magnetic waves are discovered to be most extreme. In olden days, temples were built in such a way that the floor at the centre of the temple were good conductors of these positive vibrations allowing them to pass through our feet to the body. Hence it is necessary to walk bare footed while you enter the core centre of the temple. It is a custom that people who are visiting the temple should ring the bell before entering the inner temple, Garbhagriha where the main idol is placed.

These bells are made in such a way that when they produce a sound it creates a unity in the Left and Right parts of our brains. The moment we ring the bell, it produces a sharp and enduring sound which lasts for minimum of 7 seconds in echo mode. The duration of echo is good enough to activate all the seven healing centres in our body. This results in emptying our brain from all negative thoughts. Bells had other reasons also, as most of the old temples never had doors and were located near hills and forest there would have been significant possibilities for animals, Insects, birds to take shelter. But bell sound doesn’t allow any of the living creatures to sustain inside for a long time. So don’t be surprised if you find old temples still filled with energy inside with less dust, no sign of insects or animals. You usually close your eyes to pray and when you open your eyes you should see the camphor which was lit to do the Aarthi in front of the idol.

This light seen inside the dark, activates your sight sense. In most of the ancient temples, the garbh griha (Room where the idol is situated) is constructed in a way where the sun light/Natural light is limited, (this is because of architectural and spiritual reasons. So when the devotees visit a temple -early in the morning, after sunset, Aarti is given in order to make the idol, its ornaments look glittery, shiny and clear in the dark/low light supported by other sideway Dias, so that the bhakt can have a clear look over the idol. Aarti is given by lighting a peice of camphor (fragrant, chemical repellent of micro insects that damage the quality of idol/surrounding) or a Ghee dipped cotton string with its own medicinal values they add to air while burning. Also few ancient temples use cow dung dipped in ghee/fragnant oil as sideway lights for the same purpose.

The Tilak is believed to prevent the loss of “energy” & the red ‘kumkum’ between the eyebrows is said to retain energy in the human body and control the various levels of concentration. According to modern medical science, on the forehead, between the two eyebrows, is a spot that is considered as a major nerve point in human body. While applying kumkum the points on the mid-brow region and Adnya-chakra is automatically pressed.

This also facilitates the blood supply to the face muscles. To discuss such points SMS Varanasi powered by C-SHE, organising an International Conference on topic “Ancient Indian Wisdom: Panacea for Sustainable Well-Being”.
