5 WRONG MYTHS IN HINDUISM (Myths About HINDU GODS Could Be Wrong? )


Mythological stories have a large impact on
our lives regardless of whether we believe in them or not. Since they are included in poems, everyday
phrases, and even kids’ syllabus. It is like those Twitter trends which you
have no interest in, but can’t ignore with the click of a button (unless that button
says log out). Mythological stories can’t have a binary answer. Some of them are proved true and some are
clearly the creation of the bored human mind. We don’t claim either in this article, just
letting you know the alleged facts. Hello guys, and welcome back to another amazing
video on our YouTube Channel “Life Science Facts.” If you do not want to miss our all latest

right into your smartphone. And click the link to the description to check
our last videos. 5. Shivalingam Is Phallic This is one of the most popular theories that
was introduced to us, Thanks to social media. So to the blessed 2% who aren’t aware of the
same, people claim that Shivalingam is basically an erect p*nis with a v*gina at the base. The only reason isn’t that it literally resembles
p*nis but also the fact that ‘linga’ is a Sanskrit word meaning gender or phallus. In 1900, Swami Vivekananda argued that the
Shiva-Linga had its origin in the idea of the Yupa-Stambha or Skambha, the sacrificial
post, idealized in Vedic ritual as the symbol of the Eternal Brahman. The conclusion basically is that temple claims
that Lingam associated with Shiva means ‘spine’ and not ‘p*nis’. 4. Hinduism has 330 million gods This myth is as popular as the Shivalingam. There are multiple mentions of thirty-three
Gods in Vedas. Basically, the term used to collectively refer
to all the Gods of Hindu is ‘Trayatrimsa koti’. Trayatrimsa stands for thirty-three. The word Koti created all the controversy. Koti translates to ‘crore’ but its alternate
meaning is ‘type’. That is how ‘Trayatrimsa Koti’ simply means
that Hindus have 33 Gods. So, what do you think about this myth? Please, let me know
in comment box below. 3. Hanuman Chalisa Is A Secret Code? This myth is literally picked up from social
media but it spread so much and is just too funny to not mention here. Not a long time ago, a message went viral
on Whatsapp and Facebook that Saint Tulsidas has ‘encrypted’ the distance between the
Sun and the Earth. It goes without saying that Hindus went gaga
over the same and shared the message everywhere. Multiple articles, Facebook posts, and Quora
answers were written on the same and people also wanted to update Wikipedia about the
same. This is the epic message which started it
all: “Yug sahastra yojan per Bhanu! Leelyo taahi madhu phal janu!!” we have 1 Yug=12000 years 1 Sahastra=1000 1 Yojan=8 miles 1 mile=1.6Km Yug * Sahastra * Yojan=per Bhanu 12000 *1000*8 miles=96,000,000 miles 96,000,000 * 1.6Km=1,536,000,000 Kms to
Sun Right
after experts were done laughing they turned to explain how this didn’t make any sense. 1 Yojana is about 12-15 km (the same is also
mentioned on Wikipedia). 8 miles equals 12.875 km, which claims a fixed
number for a range. Also, according to the Hindu mythological
texts, the duration of each Yuga varies. The shortest Yuga, Kali Yuga, lasts for 432,000
years. The duration of all three other Yugas doubles
in the hierarchy of Yugas. So clearly 12000 is an assumed number to drive
to the final figure. 2. Is Ram Setu Real? Regardless of whether you are religious or
not, there are thick chances that you must have heard about the bridge Rama built from
floating stones to reach Sri Lanka. According to the legends, it is a 30 km long
and 3 km wide bridge and was said to be constructed by 10 million Vanaras (loosely translates
to monkey men) in 5 days and was built 1.7 million years ago. People believe that the bridge was functional
until a great cyclone in 1480 AD completely sunk it. Fast forward to 1997, Sethusamudram Shipping
Canal Project was proposed to create a shipping route in the shallow straits between India
and Sri Lanka. The project was seen by many as an attack
on their religion. The Archaeological Survey of India cleared
that there is no evidence of the existence of Setu in the first place so it cannot be
destroyed. It is one of the most prolonged cases in Indian
Judicial history which made the decision go back and forth multiple times as politicians
and public parties got involved in the matter. The project isn’t completed till date. 1. Chinnamasta
Chinnamasta is a 16-year-old Hindu Goddess of transformation and paradoxes whose name
literally means ‘severed head’. This naked self-decapitated goddess is usually
standing or seated on a couple having sex, she holds her own severed head with a careless
smile in one hand, a scimitar in another. If you aren’t grossed out yet, there is more,
three streams of blood ooze out of her head out of which two are directly fed to her attendants
while her severed head consumes the third one. So basically there is no myth about this particular
Goddess, just a lot of questions.Since the temples don’t have a centralized library,
there are the different versions of stories about why she is doing what she is doing. The one thing which remains constant in most
versions is that she cut her own head to quench the thirst of someone. That does not explain the naked bodies under
her but I guess we have enough knowledge for the day. If you have any doubt about these facts then
I have mentioned the sources where you can read the information about these myths in
detail. And Please let us know, how did you like the
video.

    Hindu scriptures are not mythology, shivalinga is the reference to the infinite verticle centre of universe as can be deduced from shivapuran
