NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory caught the sun unleashing an M-2 (medium-sized) solar flare, an S1-class radiation storm and a spectacular coronal mass ejection (CME) on June 7, 2011. The large cloud of particles mushroomed up and fell back down, looking as if it covered an area almost half the solar surface.

The radiation released from the blast on the surface of the sun released a firestorm of radiation on a level not seen since 2006. The coronal mass ejection moved toward Earth at 1,400 kilometers per second, but because of its angle, had relatively little effect on Earth.

    Hindu scriptures like; Shiva Puran, Shree Krishna Charitram, Vishnu Puran etc also illustrates such occurring even in earlier days causing different types of disaster in earth (e.g. drought, rain, flood, forest fire, loss of life and properties). The reasons of such happenings were linked with increased non-human activities in the societies like; injustice, violation of social norms and values, social insecurity, underestimation of God and so on. It is interesting to note that management of such situation have been found linked with tolerance, unshakable faith on God, commitment and continuation on the social norms, values and rituals by the followers of poor and wicker sections of society via direct intervention of God or war, destruction and new creation. 

    Similarly, with regard to manage climate change and solar flare Hindu scriptures including Shreemadbhagwat Geeta (also widely known as Geeta) reiterates about the importance the need of performing Yagyan (a ritual of praying God lighting the fire and praying God).  

    As I reviewed in some publication including the Geeta and an article by Swami Vivekanand on “Life After Death” there is consistent relationship between activities in the earth and the sky in terms of shaping/conditioning balanced environment it is because there is always osmosis between the environment in the earth and the sky. For the continuation of this osmosis and continuation of life in the planet the reciprocity between sky and earth need to be governed by the elements (carbon, electronic, electromagnetic, gases, heat, quantum, light, etc). Extreme exploitation of natural resources, activities of drilling mother earth in the name of scientific research, destruction of earth and planet through atomic energy, increasing intervention in sky by aviation and satellite without testing the limitations on environment and fashion of ignoring the rituals because of modernization) could be the reasons that we have just started to hear the pain of mother earth. 

    There could be delay on God’s  door there is never darkness. Therefore, concentrated and committed scientific quantum research on such things as mentioned above and extensive practice of performing Yagyan for producing the bio-chemicals favorable to sky in a way overcoming the pollution may help us all. Even some of the eminent sociologist like; Dmile Durkhim, Talcot Parson, Acharya Shri Nivas has also seriously focused on the ritual relativism.

    I used to love seeing pictures of the different planets as a kid. Now that I’m grown up though, I don’t feel as excited as I did before. However, I still would love to play with my mind by going further as to “thinking like a scientist”. I guess my love for astronomy will never die down but toned down, probably.

    Congratulation for your interest and commitment. Please also keep on sharing your experiences to the scientists which may be beneficial to protect the world. Will also try to share my opinions as a layman.

    You could spend hours looking at this photo. I’m surprised more people aren’t into astronomy. It is so amazing!
