Hello soldiers of the eworld
I am writing an article after a long time.
And i am writing for the first time on Mythology.
I hope you all like it. Specially Maniu he is awesome in writing Myths.
Firstly what is Mythology?
The term "mythology" refers to the study of myths.
A myth is a sacred narrative usually explaining how the human race came to be in its present form.
Myths typically involve supernatural characters(Shri Vishnu,Shiva,Zeus,Hades) and are endorsed by rulers or priests.
There are many Mythologies but the most famous are Hindu(Indian) and Greece mythology.
So, today i am writing on Indian Mythology.
I know every Indian knows about the Indian mythology but this time i want our other friends who are not Indians knows about our Hindu Mythology.
Hindu mythology is a large body of traditional narratives related to Hinduism.
And Sanskrit is the religious literature(language used by the GODS).
The basic origin of the hindu mythology is the "VEDAS".
There are 4 Vedas in the mythology.
3. SamaVeda, and
Time Cycle of Gods
According to Hindu system,The basic cycle is the kalpa, a “day of Brahma”, or 4,320 million earthly years. So, his one day is equal to 8,640 millions earthly years. And 360 such days and nights constitute a “year of Brahma” and his life is 100 such years long.The largest cycle is therefore 311,040,000 million years long(quite huge ).
Each kalpa are divided into fourteen manvantaras, or secondary cycles, each lasting 306,720,000 years, with long intervals between them. In these periods the world is recreated, and a new Manu appears.
Each manvantara contains 71 Mahayugas,Each mahayuga is in turn divided into four yugas or ages, called Krita, Treta, Dvapara and Kali. Their lengths are respectively 4800, 3600, 2400 and 1200 “years of the gods,”
Each yuga represents a progressive decline in piety, morality, strength, stature, longevity and happiness.We are at present in the Kali-yuga, which began, according to tradition, in 3102 BC, believed to be the year of the Mahabharata War.
It is believed that there are about 350,000,000 god and goddess in hindu mythology. But only three gods are considered above all.
1. Lord Vishnu (The preserver)
2. Lord Shiva (The Destroyer)
3. Lord Brahma (The Creator)
According to the Puranas, he sleeps in the primeval ocean, on the thousand-headed snake Shesha. In his sleep a lotus grows from his navel, and in the lotus is born the Lord Brahma, who created the world. Once the world is created Vishnu awakes, to reign in the highest heaven.
As he is the preserver of life. So his duty is appear on earth whenever the things go wrong. He appears on earth in different avatars(identity).
The Avataras or incarnations of Vishnu are:-
The Fish (Matsya), The Tortoise (Kurma), the Boar (Varaha), the Man-Lion (Narasimha), the Dwarf (Vamana), Parashurama, Rama, Krishna, Buddha.
It is believed that Zeus(Greece mythology) and Shiva have the same powers.
In classical Hindu mythology Shiva is the god of destruction.
It is believed that Lord Shiva lives in Mount Kailasa in Himalayas. He wears animal skin and carries trident.A cobra often serves as his garland and the crescent moon as his hair ornament. He has a third eye, kept closed in the middle of his forehead. He may be surrounded by his beautiful wife Parvati, and their two sons, the six-faced Skanda and the elephant-headed Ganesha.
