Ahalyabai Holkar The great

                       
In India there were appearance of great Ranies for so many times through all over Her territory. Among them  very famous are 1. JNASI KI RANI-LAKSHMIBAI, 2.AHALYABAI HOLKAR-THE GREAT MAHARANI,3.RANI RASMONI OF BENGAL,4. RANI VABANI OF BENGAL, 5.SULTANA  RIZIA etc. 
Every body is eminent and memorable for each of their contributions.
Maharani Ahalyabai is specially important as because during her  'Kingship' she carried out so many humanitarian works. And the revival of Sanatan sacred places which are  being worshiped today from times immemorial happened during Her period.
To the Sadhu’s world SHE WAS A SAINT. To the common people SHE WAS A MOTHER.To the rulers SHE WAS AN EFFICIENT RULER.
Today whatever we see as a tourist or pilgrimage in different  ancient places of India, almost all are reconstructed by THE GREAT AHALYABAI.
  Her life span was 70 years. We do remember , in India The battle of Palasi happened in 1757. And the 'Sipahi Bidroha' was in1857. 'Palasi' means around the time of British invasion in India. 'Sipahi  Revolt ' means the important revolt against their ruling from India.
Ahalyabai’s period was at the time of British invasion. So her dynasty was under the close contact of the British. And according them Her image was 'Great'.
Till date only few rulers has so complete image; SRI SRI RAMACHANDRAJI, SRI VIKRAMADITYA, CHANDRAGUPTA MOURYA, THE GREAT ASHOKA ,THE GREAT AQBBUR and RANI HOLKAR AHALYABAI are only the names adored in this category. 
To me Rani Ahalyabai, Rani Vabani and Rani Rasmoni are the RUPAS[FORM] of SRI  SRI DURGA MATA.
So she has really become immortal. 
 In Indore  the University, the Airport have been established by Her name. In West Bengal the road


from Howrah to Benaras  through Arambag,Joyrambati, Kotulpur , Bankura, Purulia, Patna ,Benaras is renamed from BENARAS ROAD TO AHALYABAI ROAD. Through which DELHI  ALSO COULD BE REACHED. AND  this is the shortest route by car from Kolkata to Benaras /Delhi. Another road is GT ROAD.
But the point of despair is ,this great facts even being a doctor I have come to know  very latter. In child hood and student hood we did not read this information.  
This type of encouraging topics should be incorporated in study books. So that students become acquainted with the contributions of GREAT INDIAN LADIES.

GANGA SAGAR MELA

TOMORROW IS THE DAY OF GREAT GANGA SAGAR MELA . Readers should know about it's history.

       Swami Sacchidananda Saraswati was a famous Yogi and Tantrik in Bengal. He wrote some great books. Sadhan Pradip, Puja pradip, Jnan pradip,Guru pradip, Sandhya pradip Purascharan pradip.
       All these are the treasures of Bengal and  are very helpful for  the Sadhakas[SAINTS or SONTS.].

       Previously it was published from CHUNAR ANANDA ASRAM BAGBAZAR.  Now it is no more exist.
       Now a days these are being published by NABAVARAT PUBLISHERS.KOLKATA.
       Here he wrote a fact about Sri Sankaracharya Adi.
When Sri Sankaracharya was roaming for the unification of spiritual India and revival of Sri Sanatan Dharma, once he came into this Bengal. He heard about Swami Brmhanandaji of famous GangaSagar; who was a very aged and the highest level of Koula and Tantrik Sannyasi.
       Sri Sankaracharyaji asked him for TARKA.
       [His condition was either do tarka and defeat me or be defeated and follow my path.] 
       Swami Bramhanandaji requested him for taking rest.
       After while he said to Sankaracharyaji –Baba now tell me what do you want?
       You are talking about Adwaita and you are doing Tarka, this proves- you have not attained that level. Adwita means  "Singularity" ;there is no "Two". Then with whom you are doing Tarka.
       This was the first time when sri Sankaracharya ji  impressed with that very old Yogis words.
   Sankaracharyaji asked him for some advices.
       Showing a big stone rock on  the beach of Ganga river  Sri Bramhanandaji told in smiling face - Baba this is my Moth, my Asram. I am 300 years old. I stay here all the day and night. Whole the world is Her . So where will I do the Moth ?And who will be the disciples?
    My Moth is Ananda Asram.
       Till date in GangaSagar that stone is present. This is Kopil Munis Asram.[Kopil Muni ji was the founder of Sri Sankhya Darsan. Where it is admited that all are from ONE.-HE is PURUSA. And evrything -this nature, universe,you and me and all is PROKITI, the feminine or Anandamoy[loveable] part of that Purusa.]
       We should not forget that the revival of Kumbh mela and  Ganga Sagar Mela happened after the advent of Srimat Sankarachariya.
     And Sri Sanakara realized this Ganga Sagar after this interactions between Two Great Souls.



ACHARIYA SRI SANKARA.
