O’ Lord with a twisted trunk and a mighty physique, One whose brilliance is equal to the brightness of 10 million suns, my Lord, at all times make all my endeavors freed from obstacles.
That is the traditional rationalization to this Sloka. I just lately got here throughout a special rationalization that maintains that this Sloka incorporates a a lot deeper scientific principle. To paraphrase the reason:
The one place on this universe the place we will witness a brightness of 10 hundreds of thousands suns in a single place is a supernova explosion of an enormous star. For a star to endure a supernova explosion it must be rather more huge than a mean star like Solar (thats why its mentioned Mahakaaya, not simply Kaaya). So whats the imbalance then? Nicely, thats what causes a supernova explosion!! A star is at all times balanced towards its steady nuclear explosions (which is an outward power) on the core by its huge gravity (which is an inward power), in large stars because the nuclear gas is spent and the explosions transfer outwards from core in the direction of the floor of the star, this creates an imbalance because the explosions are not in a position to counter stability the gravitational inward power, this in huge stars (whose mass is above the chandrashekar restrict) causes an explosion ensuing within the star releasing a lot power that its brightness outshines the brightness of its total galaxy throughout the explosion, some documented supernovas witnessed from earth have been so vibrant (just like the supernova in constellation Taurus recorded by the Chinese language in 1054 ) that the supernova star was seen even throughout day within the sky (which meant it was brighter than solar inspite of being 1000s of occasions distant than solar!!). So the primary line when explains a supernova explosion as When the stability of two forces that maintain an enormous star collectively is misplaced, the result’s an explosion with a brightness equal to that of 10 million suns.
I’ve at all times felt that our Vedas comprise vital revelations in regards to the origin of the universe and about all scientific phenomena usually. The above piece of rationalization looks like a really compelling analogy between a easy Sloka and a serious cosmic prevalence. Nevertheless, I can’t see the connection between the primary two traces of the Sloka and the ultimate two. Additionally, with out taking something away from the reason itself, I can’t comprehend why such a deep scientific principle can be defined in such encrypted vogue with out no explanations main into it or following it. Perhaps I’ll determine it out over time!
Chalisa refers to Hindu devotional poem consisting of Forty Verses. The phrase “Chalisa” comes from “chalees” which implies forty.
These chalisa verses sing the reward and recall noble deeds of the deity to whom poem is devoted. It’s believed that with fixed recitation and fervent devotion one can grow to be free from all sins and sufferings.
