Josh Schrei helped me understand G-O-D (Generator-Operator-Destroyer) concept of the divine that is so pervasive in the Vedic tradition/experience. Quantum Theology by Diarmuid O'Murchu and Josh Schrei article compliments the spiritual implications of the new physics. Thanks so much Josh Schrei.

“Wonders of Things Created, and marvels of Things Existing” by Asaru-L- Bilad, a 13th century Arab geographer 0n Somanatha Temple at Somnath, Prabhas Patan, in Gujarat

“Wonders of Things Created, and marvels of Things Existing” by Asaru-L- Bilad, a 13th century Arab geographer 0n Somanatha Temple at Somnath, Prabhas Patan, in Gujarat


Photograph of the Somanatha Temple at Somnath, Prabhas Patan, in Gujarat, from the south, taken by D.H. Sykes around 1869.The following extract is from “Wonders of Things Created, and marvels of Things Existing” by Asaru-L- Bilad, a 13th century Arab geographer. It contains the following description of Somnath temple and its destruction:

“Somnath: celebrated city of India, situated on the shore of the sea, and washed by its waves. Among the wonders of that place was the temple in which was placed the idol called Somnath. This idol was in the middle of the temple without anything to support it from below, or to suspend it from above. It was held in the highest honor among the Hindus, and whoever beheld it floating in the air was struck with amazement, whether he was a Musulman or an infidel. The Hindus used to go on pilgrimage to it whenever there was an eclipse of the moon, and would then assemble there to the number of more than a hundred thousand. They believed that the souls of men used to meet there after separation from the body, and that the idol used to incorporate them at its pleasure in other bodies, in accordance with their doctrine of transmigration. “The ebb and flow of the tide was considered to be the worship paid to the idol by the sea.

The temple of Somnath was built by King Vikarmaditya , in the medieval times or copper age, some 2,500 years ago (approx) to worship God Shiv and Somanth is one of the TWELVE JYOTIRLINGAMS that we have in Bharat...

story behind the word SOMNATH...meaning:

1. what is the real meaning of the word somnath? who is somnath?
2. what is the connection of Shiv with the title somnath?
3. when was it originally built and what happened later?

Somnath, the word, means The Lord (Nath) of Nectar or the Elixir (Som), drinking which Immortality is attained.....

Its not so difficult to appreciate that the word "Somnath" has some very deep and spiritual significance.....

It means drinking such a KNOWLEDGE or GYAN from the Lord (God) Himself.... from the Nath of Som.........such that the soul becomes Immortal.

So, this means that the DRINK or the Som is NOT physical in nature but has spiritual connotation , i.e., the drink of GYAN.
and secondly, the drink is meant for the SOUL.........

Any spiritual practitioner would understand that the FOOD OR DRINK OR FUEL FOR THE SOUL IS GYAN.......

Interestingly, the entire scriptures of Bharat are redundant with the aspect and concept of SOUL.....and any spiritual practitioner would undertsand that a SOUL, by nature , is Immortal, Imperishable, Indestructible, ...but still how MANY spiritualists remain in this experience of BEING AN IMMORTAL SOUL IN THE MORTAL BODY OR COIL...or that THEY ARE IMMORTAL POINTS OF LIGHT AND MIGHT, The Souls.....!

At the Confluence of end of Iron Age (Kaliyug) and start of Golden Age (Satyug) is the Auspicious and Benevolent Sangam Yug, which is the PRESENT TIMES OF TRANSITION,..............which is prominently marked by the Divine Incarnation of God Himself, Shiv, the Benevolent One, The Father of all Souls...Sada-shiv.....Sada Kalyaankari....
