Babur Demolished Rama Birth Place 1528 AD ,Tulsidas

In Hinduism on July 31, 2014 at 08:15

The issue of Rama Janmabhoomi-that of Lord Rama‘s Birth place-having been demolished by the Moghul Emperor Babur  is very sensitive in the sense

that the ‘Secular Indians” (?) do not want to talk about History.

 

Lot of references quoted against this fact.

 

 

How about what a contemporary of Babur has to say on this?

 

I am talking about Sri.Tulsdas of Sri Ramacharita Manas.

 

He states   who and how the Rama Janmabhoomi was demolished by ‘Yavanas'(Mohammedans) in his works.

 

 

‘Yavans’

(barbarians /Mohammedans) ridicule hymns, several

Upnishads and treatises like Brahmans, Puranas, Itihas

(histories) etc. and also the Hindu society (orthodox

religion) having faith in them. They exploit the Hindu

society in different ways.

 

 

Goswami Tulsi Das says that forcible attempts are

being made by Muslims to expel the followers of Hinduism

from their own native place (country), forcibly divesting

them of their Shikha (lock of hair on the crown of head)

and ‘Yagyopaveet’ (sacrificial thread) and causing them to

deviate from their religion……(Tulsishatak)

 

Goswami Ji

says that he indulged in gruesome genocide of the natives

of that place (followers of Hinduism), using sword (army).

Gowami Tulsi Das Ji says that countless atrocities

were committed by foolish ‘Yavans’ (Mohammedans) in

Awadh (Ayodhya) in and around the summer of Samvat

1585, that is, 1528 AD (Samvat 1585- 57=1528 AD).

 

 

Describing the attack made by ‘Yavans’, that is,

Mohammedans on Sri Ramjanambhumi temple, Tulsi Das

Ji says that after a number of Hindus had been mercilessly

killed, Sri Ram Janam Bhumi temple was broken to make it

a mosque.

 

Looking at the ruthless killing of Hindus, Tulsi Ji

says that his heart felt aggrieved, that is, it began to weep,

and on account of incident it continues to writhe in pain.

 

 

Seeing the mosque constructed by Mir Baqi in

Awadh, that is, Ayodhya in the wake of demolition of Sri

Ram Janam Bhumi temple preceded by the grisly killing of

followers of Hinduism having faith in Rama and also

seeing the bad plight of the temple of his favoured deity

Rama, the heart of Tulsi began to always cry tearfully for

Raghuraj (the most revered among the scions of the Raghu

Dynasty).

 

Being aggrieved thereby, submitting himself to

the will of Sri Rama, he shouted: O Ram ! Save….Save…

Tulsi Das Ji says that the mosque was constructed by

the wicked Mir Baqi after demolishing Sri Ram Janam

Bhumi temple, situated in the middle of Awadh, that is,

 

 

Tulsi Das Ji says that the Quran as well as Ajaan call

is heard from the holy place of Sri Ram Janam Bhumi,

where discourses from Shrutis, Vedas, Puranas, Upnishads

etc. used to be always heard and which used to be

constantly reverberated with sweet sound of bells.”

 

Date of Tulsidas.

 

Goswami Tulsidas; 1497/1532–1623)

 

Date of Babur.

 

Zahir-ud-din Muhammad Babur (14 February 1483 – 26 December 1530.

Vibhishana Married Mandodari Ramayana

In Hinduism on July 28, 2014 at 19:07

There are various versions of the Ramayana.

There are some variations in the narrations among them.

Most notable among them, I thought was the one, which states that it was not the real Sita but Maya Sita.

But, Mandodari, who is considered to be a Chaste woman and kept on par with Arundhathi, Vasishta’s wife as a model of Faithful wives got married to Vibhishana, after Ravanas’ death, at the instance of Lord Rama.

 

Mandodari Mourns Ravana's Death.jpg

Queen Mandodari and the women of Lanka mourning the death of Ravana. Bas-relief of 9th century Prambanan temple, Java, Indonesia

 

This is from the Rama charita Manas by Tulsidas.

 

Mandodari was considered as one among the Pachkanya who were known for their chastity.

 

Ahalyā draupadi kuntī tārā mandodari tathā
pañcakanyā smarenityaṃ mahapātaka nāśanaṃ

Remembering ever the virgins five -Ahalya, Draupadi, Kunti, Tara and Mandodari
Destroys the greatest of sins.

 

“After the death of Ravana, Rama advises Vibhishana to take Mandodari as his wife, even though he already has a wife. A theory suggests that Ravana’s race may have had matrilineal families and thus, to restore order in the kingdom after Ravana’s death, it was necessary for Vibhishana to marry the reigning queen to get the right to rule.[13] Another theory suggests it may be a non-Aryan custom to marry the reigning queen.[12] The marriage between Mandodari and Vibhishana is purely an “act of statesmanship”, rather than a marriage based on their “mutual sexual interference”.[13]Mandodari may have agreed to marry Vibhishana, her younger brother-in-law, as this would lead the kingdom to prosperity and stability as allies of Rama’s Ayodhya, and she would continue to have a say in governance.[12] Another reason for the marriage is as an alternative to suicide for the widowed Mandodari, which is averted by Rama.

Adbuda Ramayana states that Mandodari was the Mother of Sita.

 

The Adbhuta Ramayana narrates: Ravana used to store the blood of sages he killed in a large pot. The sage Gritsamada was practicing penance to acquire the goddess Lakshmi as his daughter. He stored milk from Darbha grass and purified it with mantras in a pot so that Lakshmi would inhabit it. Ravana poured the milk from this pot into his blood pot. Mandodari is frustrated seeing the evil deeds of Ravana, so she decides to commit suicide by drinking the contents of the blood-pot, which is described to be more poisonous than poison. Instead of dying, Mandodari gets pregnant with the incarnation of Lakshmi due to the power of Gritsamada’s milk. Mandodari buries the foetus inKurukshetra, where it is discovered by Janaka, who named her Sita.

 

Valmiki’s Ramayana does not say anything to this effect.

It seems that Hanuman met Seetha towards the close of Vanavas, that is 7306-7292=14Years.

 

Rama could have organised the Ayodhya Army for his help, probably some days or months might be in dispute to conclude the Vanavas

Ayodhya Princess Korean Queen

In Hinduism on July 19, 2014 at 11:46

That Hinduism , Sanatana Dharma was spread throughout the world, I have been posting articles on this, is evident who follows world history monuments and Archaeology.

 

I have published articles that Hinduism was in Germany,Greece,China, Central America, Africa, Italy,Russia,Middle east, Iran,Iraq, Burma,Fiji.

 

I shall be posting more on this issue.

 

One finds reference to Ayodhya in Korean Legends.

 

A princess is reported to have married a Korean King,noble.

 

She is venerated as Queen.

 

 

Heo Hwang-ok is a legendary queen that mentioned in Samguk Yusa, a 13th-century Korean chronicle. She was the wife of KingSuro of Geumgwan Gaya. The legend states that she arrived on a boat from a distant kingdom, and married the king in the year 48 CE. She was the first queen of Geumgwan Gaya, and is considered an ancestor by several Korean lineages.

 

The legend of Heo is found in Garakgukgi (or Gaehwangryeok, the Record of Garak Kingdom) within Samguk Yusa. According to the legend, Heo was a princess of the Ayuta (or Ajutuo) kingdom, otherwise known as Ch’un-ch’uk.[2] The extant records do not identify Ayuta except as a distant country. Some writers identify it with Ayodhya in India.[3] Others, such as Grafton K. Mintz, identify it with Ayutthaya in Thailand.”

 

A Professor Emeritus of Hanyang University and national archeologist from Korea, Prof Byung Mo Kim shares a ‘genetic connection’ with Ayodhya.

“I share my genes with the royal family of Ayodhya. Travellers from both these countries not just traded goods, but also genes. And I hail from the Kara dynasty, whose first woman was the princess of Ayodhya, who married the first Kara king. Her brothers went on to become the Kings of Ayodhya and this is how I am genetically connected to the holy city,” said Prof Kim.

The archaeologist, whose work on the princess of Ayodhya marrying the prince of Korea’s Kara dynasty in 4th century AD has received widespread recognition, is on his fifth visit to the Holy city in search of more evidence for his study.

On his three-day visit to the state, he not only visited Ayodhya but also made a slide presentation on historical evidences of cultural links between Ayodhya and Korea, on being invited by the state government’s Ayodhya Shodh Sansthan. “The queen of Korea’s biggest dynasty Hoh was the daughter of Ayodhya and in that manner, Ayodhya is like our mother city. Princess Ho travelled by sea route and married King Kim Suro of Kara dynasty. He was the first king and the entire Kara clan, which comprises over about two-third the population of Korea are its descendents,” said Prof Kim.

The twin fish, which is the state symbol of Uttar Pradesh and is found on almost all the ancient buildings of Ayodhya, is the biggest clue to the link and the route undertaken by Princess Hoh, says the professor. “I have pictorial evidences. The twin fish symbol is originally from the Meditarrenean states and it travelled to this part of the world and settled around Lucknow. But the same twin fish symbol can also be seen in ancient buildings in Nepal, Pakistan, China and Japan and the gate of royal tomb of King Suro in Kimhae city in Korea,” said Prof Kim.

AYODHYA : A high-power delegation from South Korea visited Ayodhya to revive two millennia-old ties with the temple town. The South Koreans discovered that a Princess of Ayodhya was married to Korean King Suro in the first century CE. Suro was the King of Kimhay kingdom or the present Korea. The Princess was married to the Korean King at the age of 16. The Koreans believe that the Princess was the mother of the descendants who unified various Korean kingdoms in the 7th century CE. Since the first century CE her descendants prospered and became the largest clan in Korea, known as the Karak, whose members had been highly distinguished people. The present President of South Korea Kim Dae-Jung believes that he is also a descendant of the Great Princess of Ayodhya. She is regarded as the most blessed queen of Korea in the last 2,000 years, and Koreans believe that this could be due to the religious significance of the great temple city of Ayodhya where Lord Rama was born. The Counsel General of Korea said “I hope historians will be able to learn more about this great ancient Hindu city.” He urged the ex-Raja of Ayodhya BPN Misra to strengthen the cultural ties between Ayodhya and South Korea.
