Sun Bathes Matsya, Fish Avatar Temple

In Hinduism on August 21, 2014 at 08:10

The first Avatar of Lord Vishnu is in the form of a Fish, when He rescued the Vedas, the scriptures of the Hindus from the depths of the ocean.

 

Thee are only a few temples for the Matsya Moorthy.

 

One is in Nagalapuram ,Andhra Pradesh and another at Thuvarimaan Agraharam, situated near Madurai in Tamil Nadu

 

One day of Brahma is called Kalpa.

 

At the end of the day felt sleepy and yawned.

 

The Vedas slipped out of His mouth ,a Demon Somakudu stole them and  hid them in the Ocean.

 

The Vedas are required for Creation by Brahma after Dissolution of the earth and it was approaching.

 

Responding to the Prayers of Brahma, Lord Vishnu took the form of a small fish and eached the beach where Satyavrata Manu was performing his morning Sandhyavandana,moornin Rirual to the Sun god Surya.

 

Manu was a Dravidian King, yet another proof that the Sanatana Dharma originated in the South.

 

The fish sought refuge from Manu.

 

He kept it in a small vessel filled with water.

 

It grew lager than the receptacles irrespective of the size of the receptacle.

 

Manu realized it was Lord Vishnu and Lord Vishnu explained to him about the theft of the Vedas and assigned Manu the task of collecting Herbs, seeds of plants and animals with the help of the Divine serpent Vasuki and he Saptha Rishis. Seven Sages.

As Manu went about this job, Vishnu Killed Somakuda ,restored the Vedas and handed them back to Brahma.

* This part about Somakudu stealing is in some versions.

 

Generally this Avatar is to save the world from Deluge.

As the deluge began, the Fish tied to a Boat with the Serpent Vasuki,  with all the seeds ,sages,Manu and animals, dragged it to safety.

Manu Statue In Philippines Assembly Hindu Empire

In Hinduism on August 12, 2014 at 12:02

I am in the process of researching Human immigration in the world.

 

Hindu Deities Philipines,jpg

“Most of the folklore of the Philippines is of Hindu origin.” Sanskrit words are found in abundance in the local languages, indicating deep cultural and linguistic ties. Ramayana is still a popular play in some parts of the country. (image source: Hindu-Buddhist Art of Vietnam: Treasures from Champa – By Emmanuel Guillon)

 

Widely accepted theories are that

 

people migrated from Africa,

 

from south-east of Urals.

 

The movement of people into Europe is from Asia.

 

One wave settled in Spain,Africa.

 

The second wave consisting of Magyars, Bulgars settled in the countries which are called by these names now.

 

Hun wave also started from Asia.

 

The  movement from Urals resulted in Saraswati River valley, which later became the Vedic civilization of Mohenja Daro.

 

I am skeptical of these theories as they do not seem to be backed by adequate evidence.

 

By referring to Puarans, Archelogy.Linguistics and cultural affinity, the movement of humans seem to have been from India, that  too from the South.

 

I have posted some articles on this, under Hinduism

 

Satyavrata Manu, ancestor of Lord Rama, moved from the south to Ayodhya.

 

Please refer my post on this.

 

I am collecting information from the sources mentioned above.

 

I have been posting periodically the evidence of Hinduism and Hindu Culture throughout the world.

 

Now to the information of Hinduism being the first religion of Philippines.

 

Philippines was a part of Sri Vijaya Empire, based at Java.

 

Tamil literature speaks in detail about the  Sri Vijaya Empire and many tamil kings invaded this empire and some them even married princesses,

 

To signify this, Philipines has, Manu’s picture in the National Assembly of Philippines.

 

At present Manila is the capital of the Philippines. In the National Assembly Hall, behind the president’s seat, is a picture of Manu. Manu taught law to the Philippines, hence this picture. This shows the relation of the ancient Hindu culture to the Philippines.

When the Philippines drafted its Constitution, it placed the statue of Manu (the progenitor and lawgiver of the human race) in the National Assembly Hall with this inscription on its base: “The first, the greatest and the wisest law-giver of mankind.” Researches into the racial and cultural origins of the Philippines increasingly prove that it was colonized by some people in South India. In fact, the script of the Filipinos has some obvious similarities with that of South India. “Our dialects belong to the Dravidian family.” says Justice Romualdez. “The names of some places on the shores of Manila Bay and the coast of Luzon show their Sanskrit origin.”..

 

Dr Pardo de Tavera (1857 – 1925) has observed:

“It is impossible to believe that the Hindus, if they came only as merchants, however great their number, would have impressed themselves in such a way as to give to these islanders, the Philippines, the number and the kind of words, which they did give. These names of dignitaries,of caciques, of high functionaries of the court, of noble ladies, indicate that these high positions, with names of Sanskrit origin, were occupied at one time by men, who spoke that language. The words of similar origin, for objects of war, fortresses and battle songs, for designating objects of religious beliefs, for superstitions, emotions, feelings, industrial and farming activities, show us clearly that the warfare, religion, literature, industry and agriculture were at once time in the hands of the Hindus and that this race was effectively dominant in the Philippines.”

 

 

.

In 1990, Antoon Postma, a Dutch expert in ancient Philippine scripts and Mangyan writing, and a long-time resident of the Philippines, translated the document that came to be known as the Laguna Copperplate Inscription (LCI). When he saw that the writing looked similar to the ancient Indonesian script called Kavi, and that the document bore a date from the ancient Sanskrit calendar, he enlisted the help of fellow Dutchman, Dr. Johann de Casparis, whose area of expertise was ancient Indonesia.

Casparis confirmed that the script and the words used in the Laguna document were exactly the same as those that were used on the island Java at the time stated in the document, which was the year 822, in the old Hindu calendar or the year 900 C.E. (Common Era) on our calendar.

In 1996, a Filipino history buff in California, Hector Santos, precisely converted the Sanskrit date over to our calendar by using astronomical software and some historical detective work. He determined that the Sanskrit date written on the plate was exactly Monday, April 21, 900 C.E.

Yes, therefore the living descendants of the Honourable Namwaran are forgiven, indeed, of any and all debts of the Honourable Namwaran to the Chief of Dewata.

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.

Ganadeviyo, Uppalavanna, Ganesha Vishnu in Buddhism

In Hinduism on July 30, 2014 at 09:01

That Buddhism is a school that rose rebelling against Vedic Karma Kanda is a known fact.

 

Vishnu as Uppalavanna In Buddhism.jpg

Vishnu as Uppalavanna In Buddhism.

 

Kattargama deviyo, Muruga s The Guaring deity of Lanka.jpg

Kattargama deviyo, Muruga s The Guaring deity of Lanka.

 

What is not known is that though Buddhism advocates Idol worship and engages in NireswaraVada, denial of personal  God, Buddhism has declared Buddha and has Idols of Buddha being worshiped.

Not only that.

Buddhism has Hindu Gods being worshiped as Buddhist Gods.

 

I had already posted an article that Skanda is considered as the protector of Chinese Buddhism!

 

Now it seems that some more Hindu Gods, Ganesha Muruga and Vishnu are also included in this list of Hindu Gods being worshiped as Buddhist Gods in Sri Lanka.

 

Ganesha. The elephant-shaped god Ganesha, regarded as the god of wisdom and the remover of obstacles, is also very popular among the Buddhists under the names Ganapati or Gana-deviyo. He is worshipped as the chief of obstacles (Vighnesvara) because it is believed that he is responsible for creating and removing obstracles. He does this through troops of inferior deities or demi-gods considered as attendants of Siva, present almost everywhere, who are under his command. It is in this sense that he is called Gana-pati (chief of hosts), which is the epithet popular among the Buddhists. The devalayas dedicated to him are mostly run by the Hindus. The Buddhists worship him either through his statues, found in many Buddhists temples, or by visiting the Hindu kovils dedicated to him. As the god of wisdom and of learning, he is propitiated at the time a child first reads the alphabet. As the chief of obstacles, as their creator as well as remover, the Hindus begin their devala-ritual by making the first offering to him…

 

Vishnu. The important Hindu god Vishnu has also assumed a special Buddhist significance in the island. He is identified with the god Uppalavanna of the Mahavamsa, to whom Sakka, the king of the gods, is said to have entrusted the guardianship of Sri Lanka at the request of the Buddha before his passing away. This god is said to have arrived in the island to fulfill this mission. The name Uppalavanna means “the color of the blue water-lily.” As Vishnu is of the same color, Uppalavanna became identified with Vishnu, and in the wake of the Mahavamsa tradition, he became, as Vishnu, the protector of the Buddha-sasana in Sri Lanka. The calculated omission of the name Vishnu in the Mahavamsa in this connection may be viewed as an attempt at total localization of the divinity with a view to harmonize him with the cultural fabric of the island. His main shrine is at Devinuwara (Dondra), at the southern tip of the island, where an annual Esala (July-August) festival is held in his honor. If the identification is correct his cult can be traced to the earliest phase of the history of the island and has been popular up to the present day.

Pattini. Goddess Pattini, referred to above (see p.59), is prominent as the most popular female Buddhist divinity; she has her devalayas scattered throughout the country. Her cult goes back at least to the second century A.C. The then ruler, King Gajabahu, is said to have introduced the worship of this divinity into the island from South India.The legend about her life is told in the Tamil poem Silappadikaram. According to the myths current in the island about her, she had seven incarnations, being born seven times from water, the tusk of an elephant, a flower, a rock, a fire (or peak), cloth, and a mango. Hence she is designated as sat-pattini, sat meaning seven.

 

Kataragama. Devalayas dedicated to the different deities are scattered all over the island. God Kataragama (Skanda) in southern Sri Lanka is by far the most popular, as he is considered to be the most powerful deity capable of granting the requests of the worshipper. It is for this reason that he has acquired territorial rights throughout the island. Devalayas dedicated to him are found in many places in the island, some of which are maintained by the Hindus.

It is customary for many Sri Lankan Buddhists to visit a devalaya of one of the deities and make a vow that if the problem at hand (i.e., illness, enemies, etc.) is solved, they will make an offering to the deity concerned. Offerings are made even without such a special request. Whatever the case may be, this practice has become a ritual of propitiation through the kapuralas.

The main duties of the kapuralas are to look after the devalayas in their charge, to perform the prescribed rituals, and to offer in the inner shrine the offerings brought by devotees. The kapuralais given a fee for his services. Once the ritual is over, a part of the offerings is given back to the devotee for him to take home and partake of as having a sacramental value. The offerings normally consist of milk-rice, coconuts, betel, camphor, joss-sticks, fruits, along with flowers, garlands, flags, etc. All these are arranged in an orderly manner in a basket or tray and handed over respectfully to the kapurala, who takes it inside and offers it at the statue of the main deity inside the inner room. The devotees wait outside with clasped hands while the kapurala makes his pleadings on their behalf.

The statement he recites, called yatikava in Sinhala, is a panegyric of the deity concerned and it constitutes a humble and respectful request to bring succour to the devotee in his particular predicament. After this the kapurala emerges from the inner shrine room and blesses the devotees by using his thumb to place on their forehead a mark of a paste made from saffron, sandalwood, and other ingredients. This mark, the symbol of sanctification, is known as the tilaka.

This form of ritualistic propitiation of deities is a clear adaptation of the Hindu system where the very same method is followed, though more elaborately.

Killing Of Tamils What Is Wrong In Handling The Issue

In Sri Lanka, SriLanka, Tamils on July 25, 2014 at 20:27

Some people who are interested, definitely no politicians,in the resolution of the Sri Lanka Tamils issue have been in touch with me.

 

Tamils Raped Killed Lanka.jpg

Tamils Raped Killed Lanka.

 

Killing Of Tamils Lanka.jpg

Killing Of Tamils Lanka.

 

They are trying their best in their own way to bring in awareness among the people of world about the injustice meted out to the Tamil People in Lanka and the massacre of the Tamils in Sri Lanka.

 

These people, in their personal capacity are bringing this matter to the attention of the US Government , the Congress members of the US,Members of the

 

EU and Australia.

 

They had asked for my views on these issues.

 

My views are.

 

The Lankan issue , in my opinion, has not brought forth to the Public forcefully.

 

Mere publishing of shocking videos/images and news items of sufferings of the individuals.

 

 

The issue has not gone home to people it ought to.

 

You cross Nayudupet or Kuppam in Andhra, no body talks about this at all.

 

I am settled in Bangalore.

 

When I ask my friends in Karnataka about the Tamils issue, their answer is..

 

‘This is not new.Tamils a create problems wherever they go and they get the punishment.

 

Moreover, Sri Lankan Tamils are anti Hindus and anti Indians.

 

They killed our Prime Minister.

 

Let us talk about some thing else”

 

This is not the view of Kannadigas alone.

 

Wherever I go in the North, I get similar feedback.

 

Why?

1.Too much emphasis has been given to the word Tamils and not on the human right issue.

 

2.Why the Tamils have been treated this way and what their problems are, have not been clearly brought forth.

 

People talk about LLC and no body talks about Sirimavo agreement with India.

 

Nor the fact that the Tamils have been denied basic Rights in Lanka.

 

That they are treated as menials and second -rate citizens in their own country.

 

That their lands are grabbed.

 

Sinhalese are brought in to show that Sinhalese are in majority.

 

Their language Tamil is being slowly erased from the Island.

 

That Hinduism is systematically wiped out by destroying  Temples, Cultural Centers.

 

Employment opportunities and schooling are denied to the Tamils.

 

For the Conduct of a minor  Hindu Religious function Governmental permission is required in Tamil areas of Jaffna.

 

Children and women are raped and killed.

 

Torture , Repression and killing of people is not restricted to Tamils.

 

Now Tamils are exterminated , nearly, it is the turn of Muslims and Christians.

 

Not to leave political dissenters like JVP, or the Media.

 

The Matale Mass grave speak of the killing of JVP, it might have included Tamils as well.

 

These facts are not known to public in a manner that they can understand.

 

Pouring out emotions will be of no help.

 

This is a practical issue that needs practical approach and the first step is presentation facts and presenting them to the suitable audience who matter,

 

The issue of Lankan Tamils being anti Hindu is ill founded.

 

These are the people who propagated Shavisam and Kaumaram in Lanka and  Far East.

 

Major donors of famous temples are Lankan Tamils.

 

Then why this perception.

 

 

In Diplomacy it is not organised facts alone that guarantee people’s ears but how and through whom it is presented.

 

The Tamil issue is being presented by Karunanidhi and DK , who are known to be anti Hindus.

 

People perceive the people and the issue they promote are also anti Hindus.

 

more to follow…..
