“In us too the intuitive Fire can burn;
An agent Light, it is coiled in our folded hearts,
On the celestial levels is its home:
Descending, it can bring those heavens here.”
The United Nations has the most number of observations in the 2nd half of its calendar in the month of October.
The Hindi / Sanskrit term for the Milky Way galaxy (pictured above) is Akash Ganga or the Celestial Ganges alluding to the story of the heavenly Ganges landing on Earth near Haridwar.
The prefix Mahatma or Great Soul got added to Gandhiji’s name when he was staying at the Gurukul Kangri, the first of the part of the cluster of Arya Samaj institutions, of which Arya Nagar is also a part where AZIMVTH Ashram is situated.
