If you have been using your microwave only for heating food, you probably don't know the multitude of uses it can be put into. 

So before buying a new gadget for your kitchen, make sure you are making the optimum use of your microwave which alone can do the work of a number of expensive kitchen appliances.

- The freshness of cereals and crackers can be restored by heating them in full power for 30 seconds.

- Stale bread can be made soft and fresh again in the microwave by wrapping the bread slices with a damp kitchen towel and heating them in full power for 10-15 seconds.

- You can quickly boil the potatoes by putting them in a poly bag, sprinkling some water over them and then running them in the microwave on full power for 5-6 minutes.

- Chop off the top and bottom of onions, microwave them for 30 seconds and then peel them without shedding a single tear! And no, it does not impact their taste.

- It becomes very easy to peel garlic if you microwave it for a few seconds as the skin comes off very easily.

- You can toast nuts and almonds faster in the microwave, rather than doing the conventional way which is time consuming. Spread the nuts on a microwaveable plate, set the heat on high, and let it sit for 1 minute, stir and microwave again. Repeat this process for 4-5 minutes or till done.

- If honey or jam has crystallized, just remove the lid, place the jar in the microwave, and heat for two minutes.

- You can make clarified butter or ghee in microwave in an effortless and fuss free manner. Beat the cream in a blender. Pour it in a microwave safe glass bowl (don't use plastic even if it is microwave safe) and heat on high for 10 to 15 minutes or till the ghee separates. But be very careful as making ghee involves very high temperatures and there is always a danger of spilling over, burning and scalding.

- Place the herbs on a paper towel and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes. Your dried herbs are ready. You can also use your microwave to dry soggy foods.

- If you feel your cereals or spices are getting spoilt, just microwave them for 1-2 minutes and all lurking bugs will say goodbye.

- Microwave lemon for 20 seconds and you will be able to extract more juice.

- You can melt chocolate/jiggery/butter /cheese easily by heating them for 2 minutes.

- To get foamy milk for hot beverages, pour fresh milk about halfway in a jar. Close its lid and shake the milk until it becomes frothy. Remove the lid, place the jar in the microwave, and heat it high for 30 seconds. Pour it over your ht drink!

- It becomes easier to peel fruits like tomatoes, apricots and prunes if you microwave them for 1-2 minutes.

தர்ப்பணம் பற்றிய ஒரு சிந்தனை



தர்ப்பணம் பற்றிய ஒரு சிந்தனை
தர்ப்பணம் என்ற வடமொழி சொல்லுக்கு சந்தோஷமடைதல் என்று பொருள். தர்ப்பயாமி என்று சொல்லும்பொழுது சந்தோஷமடையுங்கள் என்று பொருள் கொள்ளலாம்.
ஜப்பான் நாட்டை சேர்ந்த இமொட்டோ என்ற ஆராய்ச்சியாளர் நீர்ல் நேர்மறை சொற்களை பிரயோகித்தபொழுது நீரில் உள்ள மூலக்கூறுகள் ஒரு முறைமையுடனும் ஒழுங்குடனும் வரிசைப்படுத்தப்படுவதை கண்டார். அதேசமயம், எதிர்மறை சொற்களை அந்த நீரில் பயன்படுத்தியபொழுது அந்த மூலக்கூறுகள் தாறுமாறாக அமைந்ததைகண்டார்.
இந்த ஆராய்ச்சிதான் இந்த கட்டுரையின் அடித்தளம்.
தர்ப்பணம் செய்யும்பொழுது நீரை அதிகமாக விட்டு தர்ப்பணம் செய்யவேண்டும் என்று கூறுவார்கள். அவ்வாறு தர்ப்பயாமி என்று நமது முன்னோர்களை முன்னிட்டு கூறும்பொழுது அந்த சொற்கள் நீரின் மூலக்கூறுகளை சென்று அடைகின்றது. நீர் ஆவியாக மாறி அந்த மூலக்கூறுகள் வளிமண்டலத்தில் கலக்கின்றன. அதாவது, சந்தோஷமடையுங்கள் என்று நாம் கூறிய எண்ண அலைகள் ஆவியாக மாறிய நீரின் மூலக்கூறுகளுடன் வளி மண்டலத்தில் சஞ்சரிக்கின்றன.
அதீத உளவியல் (Para psychology) என்ற பிரிவில் உள்ள ஆராய்ச்சியாளர்கள் மரணத்தின் பின் மனிதனின் நிலை பற்றி ஆராய்ந்து வருகிறார்கள். அந்த ஆராய்ச்சியில் மரணத்திற்கு பின் ஆழ்மன எண்ண அலைகள் அதிர்வுகளாக நிலை பெறுகின்றன என்று நம்புகிறார்கள்.
மேலே கூறிய இந்த நிகழ்வை மகாபாரதத்தில் அம்பை பீஷ்மரை கொல்வேன் என்று சபதம் செய்து நெருப்பில் வீழ்ந்து மடிந்து மீண்டும் சிகண்டியாக பிறந்து பீஷ்மரை கொன்றாள் என்று கூறும் நிகழ்விலிருந்துபுரிந்துகொள்ளலாம். அதாவது மனம் மற்றும் எண்ண அலைகள் மறைவதில்லை என்று புரிந்துகொள்ளலாம். ஆத்மா சாவதில்லை என்ற கருத்து இந்த இடத்தில் நினைவு கூறத்தக்கது. நாம் கொள்ளுகின்ற எண்ண அலைகளை பொறுத்து மறுபிறவி வாய்க்கின்றது என்பது நமது கோட்பாடு.
ஜடபரதர் என்ற முனிவர் சித்தி அடையும் தருவாயில் ஒரு மான் படும் வேதனையை நினைத்தார் என்பதினால் அவர் ஒரு மானாக பிறந்தார் என்று யோகவாசிஷ்டம் கூறுகின்றது. இதனால்தான் மனமிறக்க வாயேன் பராபரமே என்று பாடினார் தாயுமான சுவாமிகள்.

உடல் உகுத்தவர்கள் ஆழ்மன எண்ணங்கள் மறைவதில்லை என்றும் அவைகள் அதிர்வுகளாக சஞ்சரிக்கின்றன என்றும் அதீத உளவியல் ஆராய்ச்சியாளர்கள் கருதுகின்றனர். சில மகான்களின் சமாதி அருகிலோ அல்லது அவர்களின் ஆசிரமத்திற்கோ நாம் செல்லும்பொழுது நமது மனதில் ஏற்படும் ஒரு அமைதி மற்றும் பரவச உணர்சிசி அவர்களின் ஆன்மீக எண்ணங்கள் தரும் அதிர்வுகள் காரணமாக இருக்குமென்று ஆராய்ச்சியாளர்கள் கருதுகின்றனர்.
தர்ப்பயாமி என்று கூறி நீரை விட்டு தர்ப்பணம் செய்யும்பொழுது சந்தோஷமடையுங்கள் என்று நாம் திரும்ப திரும்ப சொல்லும் எண்ண அலைகள் நீரின் மூலக்கூறுகளில் சென்றடைந்து நமது முன்னோர்களின் எண்ண அதிர்வுகளை சென்றடைகின்றது என்று நம்புவதற்கு இமொட்டோவின் ஆராய்ச்சி வழிவகுக்கின்றது.
சிரார்த்த காரியங்கள் செவ்வனே செய்தால் வம்ச விருத்தி அதாவது குலம் தழைக்கும் என்று தர்ம சாஸ்திரம் கூறுகின்றது.
சந்தோஷமடையுங்கள் என்று கூறி தர்ப்பணம் செய்வதால் நமது முன்னோர்கள் சந்தோஷமடைந்து நம்மை வாழ்த்துவதோடு மட்டுமல்லாமல் மீண்டும் நமது குடும்பத்தில் பிறக்கின்றார்கள் என்று நம்புவதற்கு இடமுண்டு.
நீரில் உள்ள மூலக்கூறுகள் நாம் சொல்லுகின்ற வார்த்தையினை உள்வாங்கிக்கொள்கின்றது என்பதினால்தான் நமது சடங்குகளில் நீர் ஒரு முக்கியமானதாக உள்ளது. குறிப்பாக கும்பாபிஷேகம், சஷ்டி அப்த பூர்த்தி போன்றவை உதாரணமாக கொள்ளலாம்.
இந்த ஆராய்ச்சயின் முடிவை அன்றே நமது முனிவர்கள் தமது தவவலிமையினால்கண்டு தெளிந்து நமக்கு கூறியுள்ளார்கள் என்பதை கண்டு நாம் மெய்சிலிர்த்து போகின்றோம்.

American chanting Rudram on Adi Sankaras birthday in White house

video

⬆ On Adi Shankaras birth day....... Sri Rudram being chanted at the White House. Who'd have ever thought and these young, white American men do it so beautifully and this is a nearly flawless rendition. So proud of these folks … I am amazed at how meticulously they've grasped the svarās (intonations), especially knowing how much harder it would be with an American accent as a starting point.

SRI VARALAKSHMI VRATHA KATHA PRARAMBHAM:

Varalakshmi Vratha Katha (Legend or Story of Vara Laxmi Vratram) 

Vara Laxmi Vrata is observed on the Second Friday of the Shravan month. Charumathi, a Brahmin woman lived in a town, Kundina. She was very humble and kind in her nature. She was very much devoted to her husband and family.

One night, Goddess Laxmi appeared in her dream and told her to worship Vara Laxmi and seek her blessings. Goddess Laxmi also explained the Vrata procedure and the best day to observe Vara Laxmi Vrata. Laxmi asked Charumathi to observe Varalaxmi Vrata on the Second Friday of Shravana Month.

Charumathi informed about the dream to his husband and family. She also told to her friends and the word spread throughout the town. On the Second Friday of Shravan Month, Charumathi along with her family, friends and the women of the town observe Vara Laxmi Vrata. They worshipped Vara Laxmi with utmost devotion and offered special recipes and fruits to please her. Goddess Vara Laxmi appeared before them and granted boons to all of them. Their houses were filled with grains, diamonds, jewels and gold. They all lived happily in their rest of life. Since the time, women have begun observing Vara Laxmi Vrata every year on the specific Friday.
