A Yaatrik needs to have Icchha Sakti and Jhnana Sakti and Kriya Sakti so as to have Kasi Visvanatha Darsanam.
By having a dip in the holy Ganges , a Yaatrik is blessed by Mata Ganga with Icchha SAkti in the form of purification of mind.
By having the Darsanam of Mata Annapoorna, the pilgrim is blessed with Sat Buddi/Jhnana Sakti as Prasaadam in the form of enlightenment of mind .
By having Darsanam of Mata Visaalaakshi the Yaatrik is blessed with Kriya Sakti in the form of broad mindedness/Universal outlook.

Fanatics don't hold opinions – their opinions hold them

We sometimes find some people irrationally attached to their opinions – attached to the point of being fanatical. Their behavior may make us wonder: "What makes people fanatical?"
Fanaticism usually arises from fragmented understanding and, more fundamentally, a fragmented way of arriving at understanding. Normally, we form opinions based on the information we have and the reasoning we do thereof. Subsequently, if we are presented with additional information or better reasoning, we revise our opinions accordingly.
Some people, however, form an opinion based on partial information and some half-baked reasoning. And then, they invest their emotion, their ego and their very existence into defending that opinion. Such obsession with one conception is characteristic of knowledge in the mode of ignorance (Bhagavad-gita 18.22). Therein, people don't see the whole picture – they see only one thing and equate it with everything. When they become so consumed by that opinion, they no longer hold that opinion; it holds them. Giving up that opinion seems to them as painful as death, and they fight to hold it as if they were fighting for their life.
Still, even if we feel that some people are fanatical, we don't have to become judgmental towards them. We all are at various levels in our multi-life journey of spiritual evolution. According to our level, we think in particular ways. Who knows, we ourselves may be fanatical in some ways.
We all can expand our conceptions by studying the Bhagavad-gita. Its insights become our inner torchlight for refining both the opinions we ourselves hold and the disposition we bring into our interactions with others. Thereby, we understand that reality is much bigger than our conception of reality and that we can grow much more by improving our disposition to learn and contribute than by proving our position as learned and correct.

Meditation Verse # 3. Salutations to Krishna, the Parijata tree or the Kalpataru or the bestower of all desires for those who take refuge in Him, the holder of the whip in one hand, the wielder of the symbol of knowledge(Jnana Mudra or Chin Mudra), and the milker of the nectar of the Bhagavad Gita.

Meditation Verse # 4. All the Upanishads are the cows; the Milker is Krishna, the cowherd-boy; Partha (Arjuna) is the calf; men of purified intellect are the drinkers, the milk is the great nectar of the Gita.

स्वधर्ममपि चावेक्ष्य न विकम्पितुमर्हसि।

धर्म्याद्धि युद्धाछ्रेयोऽन्यत्क्षत्रियस्य न विद्यते।।2.31।।

स्वधर्मम् own duty अपि also च and अवेक्ष्य looking at न not विकम्पितुम् to waver अर्हसि (thou) oughtest धर्म्यात् than righteous हि indeed युद्धात् than war श्रेयः higher अन्यत् other क्षत्रियस्य of a Kshatriya न not विद्यते is.

స్వధర్మమపి చావేక్ష్య న వికమ్పితుమర్హసి.

ధర్మ్యాద్ధి యుద్ధాఛ్రేయోన్యత్క్షత్రియస్య న విద్యతే৷৷2.31৷৷

స్వధర్మమ్ own duty అపి also చ and అవేక్ష్య looking at న not వికమ్పితుమ్ to waver అర్హసి (thou) oughtest ధర్మ్యాత్ than righteous హి indeed యుద్ధాత్ than war శ్రేయః higher అన్యత్ other క్షత్రియస్య of a Kshatriya న not విద్యతే is.

Commentary: Lord Krishna now gives to Arjuna worldly reasons for fighting. Up to this time, He talked to Arjuna on the immortality of the Self and gave him philosophical reasons. Now He says to Arjuna, "O Arjuna! Fighting is a Kshatriya's own duty. You ought not to swerve from that duty. To a Kshatriyta (one born in the warrior or ruling class) nothing is more welcome than a righteous war. A warrior should fight."

The False Distinction Between 'Hindu' and 'Hindutva'

hariH om.

Be wary of anyone who identifies as a Hindu, presumes to speak on behalf of Hindus, but is critical of Hindutva.

The cliche: 'Hindu = Good; Hindutva = Bad' is a cunning (but effective) ploy to create internal fault-lines within the Hindu samaaj. This is made possible due to the symbiotic relationship between two broad categories below:

1) Breaking-India forces (and their pay-roll sepoys): Well educated and perfectly cognizant/desirous of the intended damage that the above propaganda can wreak. They are not innocent pawns, but absolute masterminds who orchestrate this from a very high level. This eventually trickles down into major domestic and international institutions, and makes its way to the general public via those channels. An extremely well researched book has been written on the subject so I needn't elaborate further.

2) Dhimmis: The name-sake (or naam-purta, as we say in Gujarati) Hindus, who just happen to be born to Hindu parents, with no agency over their assigned Hindu sounding names. Their DNA molded by long years of colonial rule, and their minds battered with a deluge of propagandist influences (courtesy of the above), worsened by an utter lack of knowledge of their own past, amounts to the untenable view that they hold: i.e. Hindutvadis = Nazis, Version 2.0.

The next time someone finds a need to flaunt their Hindu credentials, know that they don't have your best interest at heart.

Praising 'Hindus' while flaming "Hindutva' is a fiendish attempt to suck out all nourishment from the marrow of Hindus, and leave behind a dry, empty, guilt-ridden, self-loathing, rotten shell.

Sundara Kanda Paarayana causes Siddi/Jayam(success) in having Darsanam of Ayonija Mata Sita as Prakruti Jhnana Swarupini/Prajhnana Swarupini.Thus Mata Sita is Sakti for Sundara Kanda Maha Mantram
Naanaalankaranam, Tripancha Nayanam , Ruchaam and Dedeepyamaanam Sri Hanuman is Sundaram. The strategy as adopted by Sundara Swarupa Hanuman in search of Mata Sita is Sundaram. Thus Gurudeva Hanuman is Keelakam for Sundara Kanda Maha Mantram.
Rama Nama Prataapam as established in Sundara Kanda by Gurudeva Hanuman on having Darsanam of Prabhu Rama in the Hrudayam of Maha Yogini Mata Sita is Sundaram and this Sundara Tatvam installs Prabhu Rama Bhaavam in our Hrudayam. Due to the power of this Rama Bhaanam (Bhaavam+Namam) we would be enabled to cross Sata Aayu long Samsaara Saagaram.
Thus the realization of Prajhnanam (Maha Yogini Mata Sita Darsanam) with Prabhu Rama Bhaavam in Hrudayam empowers us to destroy Arishat Vargam(Asurulu) and to overpower AhamKaram(Ravana) in Deham(Lanka) . This enlightenment causes realization of Eswara as Atma/Sakshe.

The scriptures teach that all actions and activities must lead ultimately to non-attachment, for this is the best qualification for the development of the knowledge of Brahman. Of the three: devotion, wisdom, and renunciation (bhakti, jnana, and vairagya), devotion is the queen. The rules and rites are the maids-in-waiting; the queen treats her maids with kind consideration and favour, no doubt, but if the ceremonies, which are only "servants" and "aides", disregard the queen, they should be mercilessly dismissed. All the formalities and rituals in the temples must therefore subserve the glorification of the queen, which is devotion; this is the sum and substance of the dharma that must direct and govern all temples. Only then can individuals reach the goal.
