Why we can’t hear,👂🏻 when we sleep.?
The mind🧠 disconnects itself from the sense organ when we are in deep sleep.😪 Our mind as well as your brain are not active. Bcz our conscious mind is asleep and our subconscious is always wide awake. So whatever noises happens during our conscious is “asleep” our subconscious will pick it up and we might remember the noise or sound we heard when we were sleep. if we heard it again while we’re awake it will trigger you subconscious mind .
When we are in deep sleep. If somebody is yelling at us calling by names. We don’t show any reaction. The mind is not there to interpret our ego- our personality is not there. When we come back to waking state, our mind and body begins to appear in our consciousness.
But again here a question arises; When you are not able to hear anything during sleep, how does our brain wake up when hearing the alarm sound?
when we are awake there is a link between the auditory centre of the brain and the higher centres of our brain that process and understand this auditory information and then respond to it. When we go to sleep, this becomes delinked.
A really loud sound, however, will provide enough voltage and links and will wake us up. Other sounds that have very strong associations in our memory, e.g. our ringtone, alarm tone or a doorbell, may also provide enough voltage in the circuit even if they’re a bit quieter.
भोगा न भुक्ता वयमेव भुक्ताः
तपो न तप्तं वयमेव तप्ताः ।
कालो न यातो वयमेव याताः तृष्णा न जीर्णा वयमेव जीर्णाः ॥ –
bhōgā na bhuktā vayamēva bhuktāḥ
tapō na taptaṃ vayamēva taptāḥ ।
kālō na yātō vayamēva yātāḥ tṛṣṇā na jīrṇā vayamēva jīrṇāḥ ॥
भावार्थ: भोगों को हमने नहीं भोगा, बल्कि उन्होंने हमें भोग लिया। तपस्या हमने नहीं की,बल्कि हम स्वयं तप गए। काल कहीं नहीं गया बल्कि हम चले गए । तृष्णा नहीं गयी बल्कि हम जीर्ण हो गए।
Meaning : Desires were not devoured but we ourselves were devoured, penance was not observed we ourselves were made to suffer, time did not pass we ourselves became aged, hungers were not sated we ourselves were digested.
🤔 HOW IT WORKS ⁉
How does a camera work? . 📷📸
camera lens takes all the light rays bouncing around and uses glass to redirect them to a single point, creating a sharp image. When all of those light rays meet back together on a digital camera sensor or a piece of film, they create a sharp image.
The LENS gathers light from the selected image and focuses the light on to the medium.
The IRIS or diaphragm controls the amount of light that reaches the medium.
The SHUTTER is a door or gate that opens to allow selected light to reach the medium and closes after a user determined time.
The MEDIUM is the material or device where the light is transferred into a recorded image. With film cameras this is a film of acetate with layers of gelatin immpreated with silver halide particles

The story behind having Nandi sitting in front of Lord Shiva in all our temples 🐂
During the time of Samudra Madan(Ocean Churning) for Amrit. Initially Poison (KALAKUTA Vish) was ejected. The Devas prayed to Shiva and hoped that he would come to their rescue for the poison was the most effective fiery substance, which no one except Shiva could swallow.
Lord Shiva held this poison in his throat and saved the mankind. The poison was so powerful that it turned lord Shiva’s throat in to blue color. From then he was also known as Neela kanta.
Coming back to Lord Shiva blue throat. The poison in the throat is always a burning sensation for lord Shiva. Lord Shiva loves to spend time in meditation (Dhyanam). But this burning throat is not allowing him to do his meditation. Then he ordered Nandi to sit in front of him and blow some air on to his throat. The air blown on to his throat relieves him from the burning sensation. From then Onwards, Lord Shiva does his mediation with the help of Nandi.
