In Hinduism, every day of the week is considered the day of gods and goddesses. Apart from special fasts and fasts, most Hindus fast one or two days a week to worship the same deity. Worshiping and adoring the day which is a special day of God will bring the right fruit. According to Indus Shastra, a special day is allotted for each deity every week. Therefore, since today is Wednesday, let’s talk about God and worship, which is considered a special day on Wednesday. Wednesday is the day dedicated to the planet Mercury. On this day, especially Vithal-Dev (incarnation of Krishna) is worshiped.
Worship should be done with basil leaves. Wednesday is considered auspicious for starting a new job. Also, it is believed that those who fast for Lord Krishna on this day will get the fruit they want. It is called Ni Som Kheti Budh Ghar. It would be great to build a house today. Method of worshipping Krishna: Worship of God, prayer, worship of Shakti has been an integral part of every religion and culture since time immemorial. In all religions, devotional songs, hymns, mantras, music, dance and meditation etc. are used to worship God, read and sing hymns. Praying individually or collectively in front of Istadeva, Paramatma or Shakti Peetha, not only physically but also emotionally, has become an integral part of religion and culture.
Within all beings there is Parabrahma Paramatma, which is also clear from the thought of Swami Vivekananda. If you meditate with a pure and peaceful mind, you can be interviewed. Prayer has a special place in Hinduism. Its influence has spread to other religions and cultures as well. The practice of Hindus chanting Om with both hands is known all over the world today. The importance of is great. ॐ The three letters A, U and M are combined. In the Upanishads of Om, glory is sung in different ways. It is said in Mandukyopanishad that this soul is Omkar in the form of letters. A, U, M These three dimensions are the three legs of the soul.
It is said in the Upanishads that Akar is the world, that is, the awakened form, Ukar is the Taijas, that is, the dream form, and Makar is the Pragya, that is, the dormant form. Especially when reciting hymns and mantras, the number of words prescribed for sweetness is sung in rhythm and rhythm. For example, a hymn of twenty-four syllables composed of three stages of eight syllables of Gayatri mantra can be taken.
Om bhurbhuvasva :, tatsuviturvarenyam, bhargo devasva dhimahi, dhiyo yo na prachodayat, Similarly Ram Krishna hymn of 16 syllables, Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Sweetness is also found in the rhythm of Hare Ram Hare Ram Ram Ram Hare Hare.
Similarly, the lord of the three worlds, the protector of the world, the eternally pure-bodied descendant of Kadamba, who has a very beautiful and charming face, is sitting among the cows, gopas and gopinis and playing the flute in a melodious voice is remembered. By constantly chanting the holy name of the supreme element or primordial man, one is surely blessed by God. This name has been held by the Vedic Aryans since time immemorial under the sages Shri Vyasaji, Vashishta etc. It is said that one can get rid of the bondage of life and death by always chanting “O Govinda, O Damodar, O Madhav” to the compassionate Nrusinha Narayan who overcame the obstacles of Pralhad.
Shri Krishna Govind Hare Murari, O Nath Narayan Vasudev, Govind, Govind Hare Murari, Govind, Govind Mukund Krishna, Govind Damodar Madhav. This mantra is worth chanting in the last hour of one’s life to retire from suffering. Therefore, let us go to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Shri Madhusudan Purushottam Shri Krishna, saying, “O Gavinda, O Damodar, O Madhav,” to his sweet name. In the Vishnu Purana, when a crocodile grabs an elephant’s leg and pulls it out of the water and leaves all its friends and relatives alone without any fear, Gajraj calls out O Govinda, O Damodar, O Madhav with impatience.
When Draupadi’s sari was torn apart by misrule in the assembly of Kauravas and Pandavas, when she found no other support, she cried out from her heart, “O Krishna, O Vishnu, O Keshav, protect me.” Let’s take away the crisis of all the devotees and give the desired fruit to the Vaidyarupi Kasturi-like blue-colored Kalpavriksha Purushottam Shri Krishna to Govinda, Damodar, Madhav, these beautiful and Samudhur Namamrit.
Lord Krishna, who easily climbs the Gorvadhan mountain, protects all people, all demons of the world, Infinite, who can easily destroy demons, etc. How great is Lord Krishna’s paradise, Lord Krishna, Lord of all three worlds. Just remembering these names destroys all kinds of human problems. According to the Vedas, chanting the mantra of the same name at the time of sacrificing the human body frees one from the bondage of life and death. (Based on Govinda Damodar Madhaveti hymn written by Shri Vilvamangalacharya.)
It is customary to recite God’s hymns and mantras 108 or 1008 times. In Hinduism, mantras or hymns are arranged separately for each deity. Such as Shiva-Stotra Ram-Stotra, Hanuman Chalisa etc. These are especially popular in the form of singing God’s glory, hymns or mantras. In addition to this, it is customary to recite 1,000 different names of the same God as Sahasr Naam. The verses of Vishnu’s Sahasranama are recited during the month of Shravan while fasting or worshiping Satyanarayana. For example, a verse in the Sahasranama states: Om Vishwan Vishnurvashtkar Ityangusthabhyan Namah Amritanshubhdo Bhanuriti Tarjanibhyan Namah
Apart from Hinduism, other religions and other countries have been practicing their own means of separate prayers and worship since time immemorial. Shinto has been practiced in Japan since time immemorial. In this religion, God is considered as a power. In that religion, animals, rivers, mountains, rocks, etc. are worshiped. Shinto worshipers go to the Shinto temple in Jinja to pray. At the entrance to most jinjas, there is a large door called “Tori”. God is honored by bowing one’s head before entering Jinja. After that, it is customary to wash one’s hands and face in a tap placed in a place called “Temiju”. Then the main building at the end of the open square where God is enthroned is played once and the goods are placed in a box placed at the entrance of the building. The devotee then bows his head twice, claps his hands twice and greets and prays.
It is said that Buddhism spread to Japan about 1800 years ago and is now mixed with Shinto religion. It is customary to worship the Buddha’s own temple and the idols of the Buddha inside the temple, as in other countries in South Asia. The Togenugijijyo Temple in Sugamo, Tokyo has a famous statue of Buddha called Araikonan. It is believed that if the devotees bathe in the idol with water and wipe the body of the idol with a handkerchief, the disease in the body of the devotee will be eradicated. Prayers directly aimed not only at God but also at power can be found in various tribal tribes. From time immemorial to the present day, the methods of worshiping God and power have remained the same in different religions and cultures. The main purpose of prayer is to reach out to God through prayer, to call on God, to sing the praises of God, and to seek fruit.
People are born into this world and die when the time comes. In the short period between birth and death, people are tempted to accumulate material possessions. Forgetting that they have to leave this material world one day, they resort to many sinful deeds and selfish deeds. But the accumulation of material wealth alone does not bring happiness. Man is not only happy in his own happiness, but also in helping others in their sorrows. Worshiping in the temple alone is not the only religion. Man makes money through his art, intellect and conscience. But his physical well-being alone does not bring him welfare. He not only uses money for himself, he always devotes himself to helping others.
The scriptures say that one should strive for the attainment of God and material prosperity together. It provides peace of mind. In this world we come and go empty-handed. Whatever material possessions we acquire, in this world, we have no choice but to leave them at the end. We are not his permanent owner. Because it is not certain who owned those items yesterday, who owns them today and who owns them tomorrow. We are just a passenger in the eternal journey of this world. Coincidentally, you may meet someone today, or you may break up again tomorrow. Nothing that lasts forever.
It is said in verse 1 of the Ishavasyopanishad,
Namely: Keep God with you and live this world in sacrifice, don’t be addicted to it, because whose is this wealth, food? No one’s. Man can be happiest if he always has God with him. The means of getting closer to God are knowledge, meditation and hymns. Devotion to God, as can be done through any medium, requires only deep reverence and devotion. In that case, it is mentioned in the scriptures that one can easily approach God and be freed from the bondage of life and death. Prayers, hymns, or meditations can bring peace to a person’s mind. That is why the practice of singing hymns, praising and chanting the names of various gods has been going on uninterruptedly since ancient times.
