Significance of Shankh (Conch) in Hinduism :
According to Hindu ancient scriptures of Puranas, it is believed that the use of shankh came into existence during the churning of the ocean by Hindu deities when Lord Vishnu held it in the form of a holy weapon.
A particular specification of the shankh lies in the vibrations it emanates upon being blown by the devotee as it’s believed to destroy all forms of diseases and germs in the surrounding atmosphere. Due to this feature, it also holds an important place in Ayurveda and medicine.
Let us understand the functions of Shankh as seen here:
The yellow coloured circles of chaitanya are being emitted from the shankh in the atmosphere. The subtle blue coloured dots depicting devotion are projected as rays in straight line. The pink circles are formed of particles of bliss (anand) and they are constantly active.
Generally a left sided shankh is preferred in religious ceremonies and rituals. Today, one will come across a variety of Shankhs available for purchase and find some of these to bear figured art work on their surface.
For finding out whether the shankh is genuine or not, it’s advisable to perform the following simple test. Without blowing the shankh, if you hear or feel a pleasant sound or vibe when placed near your ear, it is a genuine one.

2012-11-09 05:10:18 GMT I try to live in the present moment but then I see a photo or smell a smell, or find something that takes me back in time to other moments that I've had in my life. All the emotions and feelings of being there at that time fill my mind and body. And then something wakes me up and I am drawn back to the present moment as if I was riding on a wave crashing down onto the harsh reality that those times will never be again.

2013-08-28 06:57:16 GMT Lunar Effect on Animals
The Full Moon influences the psyche of animals with evident intensity. It is responsible for triggering a chaotic behavior in them during this phase. Veterinary staffs are found to be extra busy at this time. Animals indicate signs of restlessness.
Dogs and wolves might howl during the Full Moon phases, while birds feel disoriented and their daily variations in melatonin also disappear during full-moon days, and pet cats avoid human contact and tend to go into a nutshell all together. During the Full Moon, both human emotions as well as animals’ go into a frenzy of their own.
During the New Moon phase, a sensitive animal experiences a change of old habits and their senses are heightened along with their sensitivity. Animals like cats, dogs, other domestic and wild animals tune into nature’s vibrations during this time. They seem to naturally tune into the New Moon phase.
The Lunar cycle may affect hormonal changes early in phylogenesis (insects). In fishes, studies have shown that it influences their reproduction. The lunar effect leaves an impact on laboratory rats with regard to their taste sensitivity and their ultrastructure of pineal gland cells.
When the Moon is at its closest to Earth, animals tend to be ultra-sensitive similar to humans. The power of the electromagnetic fields during a Full Moon increases the ability to sense and feel stress circulating around us all.
As this type of study progresses daily in order to understand the effects on behavior of humans and animals, the Moon’s mysterious allure persists.
