अस्य श्री गायत्री ध्यान श्लोक:
(gAyatri dhyAna shlOka)
• This shloka to meditate personified form of वेदमाता गायत्री was given by Bhagwaan Brahma to Sage yAgnavalkya (याज्ञवल्क्य).

• 14th shloka of गायत्री कवचम् which is taken from वशिष्ठ संहिता, goes as follows..

• मुक्ता-विद्रुम-हेम-नील धवलच्छायैर्मुखस्त्रीक्षणै:।
muktA vidruma hEma nIla dhavalachhAyaiH mukhaistrlkShaNaiH.

• युक्तामिन्दुकला-निबद्धमुकुटां तत्वार्थवर्णात्मिकाम्॥
yuktAmindukalA nibaddha makutAm tatvArtha varNAtmikam.
• गायत्रीं वरदाभयाङ्कुश कशां शुभ्रं कपालं गदाम्।
gAyatrIm vardAbhayANkusha kashAm shubhram kapAlam gadAm.

• शंखं चक्रमथारविन्दयुगलं हस्तैर्वहन्ती भजै॥
shankham chakramathArvinda yugalam hastairvahantIm bhajE.
This shloka describes the form of वेदमाता गायत्री.

• It says, "She has five faces which shine with the colours of a Pearl 'मुक्ता', Coral 'विद्रुम', Gold 'हेम्', Sapphire 'नील्', & a Diamond 'धवलम्'.
• These five faces are symbolic of the five primordial elements called पञ्चमहाभूत:' which makes up the entire existence.

• These are the elements of SPACE, FIRE, WIND, EARTH & WATER.

• All these five faces shine with three eyes 'त्रिक्षणै:'.
• The third eye, is symbolic of perception beyond the dualities of existence.

• It is a sense beyond the opposite of HOT & COLD, PAIN & PLEASURE, GOOD & BAD and LIFE & DEATH.
• She is depicted to have a CRESCENT MOON 'इन्दुकला' on the top of her crown 'मुकुटं'. This crescent moon is also called as 'सोम', represents intoxicated bliss, that pours from the top of the head, once energies reach the crown 'चक्र:'.
•She is an embodiment of sounds that depict the nature of the true self, 'तत्वार्थवर्णात्मिकाम्'.
•These are the 24 sounds that form the 'गायत्री मंत्र:' itself.
•Out of her 10 hands, two are said to be holding the ' वरद्' Boon providing mudra & 'अभय ' Fear dispelling mudra.
• The other two hands have 'अंकुश' a hook, which represents control over the mind and 'कशां' a whip, which denotes control over the senses.
• In one of the hands, she holds 'शुभ्रं कपालं', a clean skull which represents a vessel. It is symbolic to 'पात्रत्व' or eligibility of having a clear mind, which is important to enhance once perception.
• In another hand, she holds a mace 'गदा', which is a symbol of Power & Strength, which is used to destroy enemies.

• She also holds a conch 'शंखम्', which is the source of the first articulate sound 'ओंकार'.
• In the next hand, she holds a rotating wheel 'चक्रम्', it is compared with the mind which rotates swiffer than the winds ' चक्र स्वरुप: मन:'.
• In the last two hands she holds two lotuses 'अरविन्दयुग्लम्' which depict abundance in the material world.
If we look closely at the depiction of वेदमाता गायत्री, we see the symbolism of many other dieties within her.

• The crescent moon on the crown, the three eyes & the skull are symbolic of BHAGWAAN SHIVA - THE DESTROYER.
• The conch, the chakra, the mace (गदा) & the अभय मुद्रा denote BHAGWAAN VISHNU - THE PROTECTOR.

• The lotus seat is symbolic of BHAGWAAN BRAHMA - THE CREATOR.

• The वरद् मुद्रा & the two lotuses are symbolic of MATA LAKSHMI - THE GODDESS OF WEALTH.
In short वेदमाता गायत्री is symbolised as an embodiment of all dieties, ' सर्वदेव स्वरुपिणी'.
In nutshell, the shloka states,

" I sing the praise of dEvI gAyatri who has five faces of the colours of Pearl, Coral, Gold, Sapphire & Diamond, who has three eyes,
who has the crescent moon in her crown, who is the form of the 24 letters describing the unity of existence, who holds Varada & Abhaya Mudras in her two hands and in others she holds the hook, the whip, the skull, the mace, the conch, the wheel & two lotuses.

I'm sorry for all the mistakes occurred, if any, it was completely unintentional.
Thank you for reading 🙏

O Idi0t @shakirqad that wasn't any private report of Pt. Anand Koul that was a research text of Archeological Survey of India.
It is just a page of your destructive & blo0dy History.

The layout of Jamia Mosque resembles a Buddhist chaitya hall, while the ceiling of the central chamber is supported by four wooden columns.

Which was seen in the temples of medieval Kashmir

The whole structure is surmounted by a multi-tiered pyramidal roof with an open square pavilion (brangh) in the centre. The brangh is crowned by a spire... which was a part of Hindu and Buddhist building traditions.

Read along!
A Muslim chronicler writes in Baharistan-i-Shahi "Hindus were forcibly converted to Islam and were massacred in case they refused to be converted And Sikandarpura (a city laid out by Sultan Sikandar) was laid out on the debris of the destroyed temples of the Hindus.

In the neighborhood of the royal palaces in Sikandarpur, the Sultan destroyed the temples of Maha-Shri built by Praversena and another by Tarapida. The material from these was used for constructing a ‘Jami’ mosque in the middle of the city.”

How can we use language supervision to learn better visual representations for robotics?

Introducing Voltron: Language-Driven Representation Learning for Robotics!

Paper: https://t.co/gIsRPtSjKz

🧵👇(1 / 12)

Videos of humans performing everyday tasks (Something-Something-v2, Ego4D) offer a rich and diverse resource for learning representations for robotic manipulation.

Yet, an underused part of these datasets are the rich, natural language annotations accompanying each video. (2/12)

The Voltron framework offers a simple way to use language supervision to shape representation learning, building off of prior work in representations for robotics like MVP (
https://t.co/Pb0mk9hb4i) and R3M (https://t.co/o2Fkc3fP0e).

The secret is *balance* (3/12)

Starting with a masked autoencoder over frames from these video clips, make a choice:

1) Condition on language and improve our ability to reconstruct the scene.

2) Generate language given the visual representation and improve our ability to describe what's happening. (4/12)

By trading off *conditioning* and *generation* we show that we can learn 1) better representations than prior methods, and 2) explicitly shape the balance of low and high-level features captured.

Why is the ability to shape this balance important? (5/12)

Whenever we chant a Mantra in Sanskrit, it starts with 'Om' and mostly ends with 'Swaha' or 'Namaha'. This specific alignment of words has a specific meaning to it which is explained in Dharma Shastra.

Mantra is a Sanskrit word meaning sacred syllable or sacred word. But Mantras r not just words put together,they r also vibrations.The whole Universe is a cosmic energy in different states of vibration &this energy in different states of vibration forms the objects of Universe.

According to Scriptures,Om is considered to be ekaakshar Brahman,which means Om is the ruler of 3 properties of creator,preserver&destroyer which make the
https://t.co/lyhkWeCdtv is also seen as a symbol of Lord Ganesha, as when starting the prayer,it's him who is worshipped 1st.

'Om' is the sound of the Universe. It's the first original vibration of the nothingness through which manifested the whole Cosmos. It represents the birth, death and rebirth process. Chanting 'Om' brings us into harmonic resonance with the Universe. It is a scientific fact.

Therefore, Mantras are described as vibrational words that are recited, spoken or sung and are invoked towards attaining some very specific results. They make very specific sounds at a frequency that conveys a directive into our subconcious.
