Arrow Black Ish Vara

Lakshmi Gayatri..
The Devaputra are actual beings who interfere with our spiritual progress to liberation and enlightenment..The most common mara of this type is Black Ishvara.. This god abides in the land known as 'Land of Controlling Emanations', which is the highest state of existence in the desire realm..

The Little Matrix + Awakening..

Ishvara (Sanskrit: ईश्वर, Īśvara) is a concept in Hinduism, with a wide range of meanings that depend on the era and the school of Hinduism.. In ancient texts of Indian philosophy, Ishvara means supreme soul, Brahman (Highest Reality), ruler, king or husband depending on the context..The root of the word Ishvara comes from īś- (ईश, Ish) which means "capable of" and "owner, ruler, chief of", ultimately cognate with English own (Germanic *aigana-, PIE *aik-).. The second part of the word Ishvara is vara which means depending on context, "best, excellent, beautiful", "choice, wish, blessing, boon, gift", and "suitor, lover, one who solicits a girl in marriage"..As a concept, Ishvara in ancient and medieval Sanskrit texts, variously means God, Supreme Being, Supreme Soul, lord, king or ruler, rich or wealthy man, god of love, deity Shiva, one of the Rudras, prince, husband and the number 11..

In Saivite traditions of Hinduism, the term is used as part of the compound "Maheshvara" ("great lord") as a name for Shiva.. In Mahayana Buddhism it is used as part of the compound "Avalokiteśvara" ("lord who hears the cries of the world"), the name of a bodhisattva revered for her compassion.. When referring to divine as female, particularly in Shaktism, the feminine Īśvarī is sometimes used..The Yogasutras of Patanjali, the foundational text of Yoga school of Hinduism, uses the term Ishvara in 11 verses: I.23 through I.29, II.1, II.2, II.32 and II.45..In Nyayasutra's Book 4, Chapter 1 examines what causes production and destruction of entities (life, matter) in universe..Proposition sutra: Ishvara is the cause, since we see sometimes human action lacks fruits (results)..Prima facie objection sutra: This is not so since, as a matter of fact, no fruit is accomplished without human action..Conclusion sutra: Not so, since it is influenced by him...

Gajalakshmi, that is Lakshmi with elephants, is one of the most significant Ashtalakshmi aspects of the Hindu goddess Lakshmi.. The earliest available depiction of Gajalakshmi appears on a coin (3rd century) from Kausambi.. One or two elephants depicted alongside a woman symbolized the birth of Gautam Buddha.. "Om. Let us meditate on the Great Goddess Sri Lakshmi, the consort of Sri Maha Vishnu.. May that effulgent Maha Lakshmi Devi inspire and illuminate our mind with understanding"..Ma-Ha-Bone... is all around us.. Even now, in this very room.. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your TV..And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it..You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged...
