Visiting Hindu🕉️ temple BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Chino Hills, CA.
This is one of the most beautiful temples I have ever seen in my life! It's absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. Words can't describe the beauty of the marble carvings, especially the white marble carvings inside of the temple. No photography is allowed so you have to come and see it for yourself. It's absolutely gorgeous and incredibly spiritual 🙏📿 Indian culture and Hinduism are so unique and beautiful in their own way. This is a place to experience, to learn and admire. Truly recommend to visit. 🇷🇺Сегодня посетили храм Индуизма🕉️ BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir в Чино Хиллз, Калифорния. Один из самых красивых храмов которые я видела. Слава не могут описать красоту и искусство вырезки камня и дерева, особенно белого мрамора внутри храма. Внутри не разрешено фотографировать, поэтому стоит приехать посмотреть самим. Очень красиво и духовно 📿🙏 Индийская культура и религия такие уникальные и интересные. Прекрасное место, очень рекомендую посетить. #hinduism#indiantemple#bapsshriswaminarayanmandir#bapsswaminarayan#hindu#hindutemple#индуизм#индийскийхрам#храм
Bhagavad Gita Chapter-3 Sloka-14
Narrated by Titikshila Das(BaktiVedantaTrust) ~
annād bhavanti bhūtāni
yajñād bhavati parjanyo
Translation:All living bodies subsist on food grains, which are produced from rains. Rains are produced by performance of yajña [sacriﬁce], and yajña is born of prescribed duties. ~
Word-To-Word meaning:annāt — from grains; bhavanti — grow; bhūtāni — the material bodies; parjanyāt — from rains; anna — of food grains; sambhavaḥ — production; yajñāt — from the performance of sacriﬁce; bhavati — becomes possible; parjanyaḥ — rain; yajñaḥ — performance of yajña; karma — prescribed duties; samudbhavaḥ — born of.
Purport:The Lord can be satisﬁed by sacriﬁces; therefore, one who cannot perform them will ﬁnd himself in scarcity – that is the law of nature. Yajña, speciﬁcally the saṅkīrtana-yajña prescribed for this age, must therefore be performed to save us at least from scarcity of food supply.
