Dravidians And Aryans Were amid Each Other Proof.

In Hinduism on June 19, 2014 at 17:48

One finds it very curious about the  relationship of the people of India living in the northern part of India, North of  the Vindhya Ranges, where the

 

Vedic civilization flourished and the Southern part, South of the Vindhyas.

 

 

Vedic India North.imeg.jpg,

Vedic India North.

There are some assumed facts.

 

1.Vedic civilization was a closed one and Dravidians had no inkling of it.

 

2.The Vedic people considered the Dravidians as Barbarians and uncultured.

 

They were called as Dasyu meaning Slaves.

 

3.That the Vedic life was introduced by the sons of Viswamitra through their descendant, Apasthamba( I was holding this view and  you can see my

 

posts on this and my view was based on the scholarly view of PT.Srinivasa Ayyangar in his Book History of the Tamils.

 

The Vedic people banished  criminals and the sinners to Dravida Desa.

 

4.The Dravidas were invaded by people from the north and the Dravidians , subjugated and the Dravidians became cultured.

 

Lets us see how right these assumptions are.

 


1.Vedic civilization was a closed one and Dravidianas had no inkling of it.

 

Far from it.

 

To begin with the Bharata varsha extended beyond the Vindhyas,Asia, included Lemuria,Far east,Africas, Americas and the Europe, including the

Scandinavian Countriies.

 

The customs that have survived in these areas, the artifacts and temples, system of worship point to Vedic Presence.

 

The worship of Fire, Burning the corpses,Worship of the Sun, Use of Spices native to India, Temples like Angkor,worship of ancestors , especially in

 

the now defunct African Religion,Mayan System of Calculation of Time,Machu Pichu, all indicate their Vedic roots.

 

Read some of my posts on these under Hinduism.

 

The designation as the Chief  God of each geographical Division unique to Tamils-Varuna for Neythal Seashore,Korkai, Durga for Palai, Desert, Mayon,

 

Vishnu for Mullai, Forests.

 

The participation of Northern kings in Southern princesses’ Swayamvara and of the South in the North.

 

In Damayanti Swayamvara Tamil kings were present.

 

In Lord Rama’s marriage tamil kings names are mentioned as being present tin the Swayamvar of Sita.

 

Tamil Chera King Udiyan Cheralathan  fed both he Kaurva and Pandavas armies during the Mahabharata War.

 

Tamil kings participated in the Mahabharata war, some on the side of the Pandavas some on the side of Kauravas

 

 

Pandya King fought along the Pandavas,his daughter was married to Arjuna when hwas on a Pilgrimage to South.

 

So this argument that the Tamil and the Vedic  people were mutually exclusive is erroneous and mischievous.

 

2.The Vedic people considered the Dravidians as Barbarians and uncultured.

 

They were called as Dasyu meaning Slaves.

 

Again sheer nonsense.

 

The Puarans quote Tamil Kings as cultured, wealthy and highly industrious.

 

The Vedic people bought Ivory and pearl from the South.

 

The History of Tamil is as old as Sanskrit and beyond tracing.

 

Please refer my posts on these.

 

Now to the term Dasyu.

 

“Vedas describe Arya and Dasyu at several places. Many mantras pray for destruction of Dasyu and looting of their wealth. Several mantras state that even women should not be spared if they are Dasyu. Hence one can conclude that Vedas describe the brutal Aryan invasion of Dasyu people.
In total, there are 85 mantras referring to Dasyu in Rigveda. Several refer to Daas as well, which is a synonym. Let us review some of the mantras evaluate what they mean.

 

 

Rigveda 1.33.4

O, All Powerful Warrior! You possess a variety of powers and roam alone. Do use your powerful weapon to destroy wealthy Dasyu (criminals) and Sanakah (those who steal from others). May they reach their deaths through your weapon. These Sanakah are devoid of noble acts.

The adjective used for Dasyus are “Ayajva” meaning those who do not perform noble acts or noble resolutions. Obviously such people would be criminals. Thus the king is advised to destroy such criminals to safeguard his people.

Sayana defines Dasyu as thief. Dasyu origins from root ‘Dasa’ which means “Upakshaya” or that which leads to destruction. Hence Dasyu refers to those people who are destructive or criminals. It does not refer to any caste or race.

Rigveda 1.33.5

Those Dasyu (criminals) who are themselves devoid of noble resolutions and clash with noble people, flee away due to your protection. O brave warrior, you have destroyed the Avrata (unscrupulous) from everywhere.

In this mantra, two adjectives are used for Dasyu – Ayajva (those who do not perform noble acts and noble resolutions) and Avrata (indisciplined and unscrupulous).

Very clearly, Dasyu refers to criminals and they are accorded the same treatment in Vedas as they deserve in any civilized society.”

 

So this misinformation falls flat.

 

3.That the Vedic life was introduced by the sons of Viswamitra through their descendant, Apasthamba( I was holding this view and  you can see my

 

posts on this and my view was based on the scholarly view of PT.Srinivasa Ayyangar in his Book History of the Tamils.

 

The Vedic people banished  criminals and the sinners to Dravida Desa.

 

In the light of explanation in 1 and 2 this is no more valid.

 

However it is a fact that criminals were sent to Dravida desa ,Viswamitra banished his sons and and Apasthamba compiled the Apasthamba Sutra being

practiced even to day in the South.

 

4.The Dravidas were invaded by people from the north and the Dravidians , subjugated and the Dravidians became cultured.

 

Aryan invasion theory is deliberate misinformation and proved to be a Myth.

 

Read my post on this.

 

As,

 

Indus valley inscriptions do indicate the so called Dravidian insignia and the artifacts found in the South in places likes like Aikkamedu contain Vedic

 

Symbols,

 

The cultural unity in customs and practices between the north and the South,

 

Many Rishis are common both to North and South, Agasthay, Bhargava, Parashuama, Viswamitra, Vasishta,Ygnyavalkya,

 

The ancient languages both Tamil and Sanskrit quote each other, and as

 

, nothing definite is known about the ancient domain of the Dravidian parent speech. It is, however, a well-established and well-supported hypothesis that Dravidian speakers must have been widespread throughout India, including the northwest region. Origins of Dravidian people are informed by various theories proposed by linguists, anthropologists, geneticist and historians. According to geneticist Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza in the book The History and Geography of Human Genes, the Dravidians were preceded in the subcontinent by an Austro-Asiatic people, and were followed by Indo-European-speaking migrants sometime later.

                              Most linguists believe that Dravidian-speaking people were spread throughout the Indian subcontinent before a series of Indo-Aryan migrations. In this view, the early Indus Valley civilization (Harappa and Mohenjo Daro) is often identified as having been Dravidian.Cultural and linguistic similarities have been cited by researchers such as Finnish Indologist Asko Parpola as being strong evidence for a proto-Dravidian origin of the ancient Indus Valley civilization.

                             Some scholars like J. Bloch and M. Witzel believe that the Indo-Aryan moved into an already Dravidian speaking area after the oldest parts of the Rig Veda were already composed. The Brahui population of Baluchistan has been taken by some as the linguistic equivalent of a relict population, perhaps indicating that Dravidian languages were formerly much more widespread and were supplanted by the incoming Indo-Aryan languages.(wiki)

 

My conclusion is that the people of the North and the South were one under Bharatavarsha lived together, married betwwen them , fought against each

other.

 

When they were against each other they considered the other as  undesirable and once he issues are sorted out they became one  together.

 

Otherwise lot of things in Sanatana Dharama, Temples, Archaeology become meaningless and self contradictory.

Purusha Suktha Generates Electricity Prototype

In Astrophysics, Hinduism on May 4, 2014 at 11:48

I had a very interesting comment on my post on Electricity and  Vedas shared in Facebook.

 

The comment was to the effect that the information in  the Indian Texts are so allegorical and descriptive that it is very difficult to sift Data from  these.

 

True,

 

My reply was that I have, with the help of references from the Internet and Books, have been positing articles  and these may be found under

 

Astrophysics and Science.

 

Interpretations of the Vedic texts depends on the reader as well.

 

Apart from a good exposure to Sanskrit one has to have a grounding in Indian Philosophical systems, not only the Vedas and the subject matter he

wants to look for in the Vedas.

 

If one wants to find references to Quantum Theory, one should have a clear understanding of Quantum so that one knows what to look for.

 

I found an interesting interpretation of the Purusha Sukta.

 

Based on the first two lines a Prototype of an Electrical Motor was developed and it generated Power!

 

The Power Input was 126 Watts, Output  303 Watts.

 

This is achievement as there is an additional generation of Power from 126 to 333.

 

Quantum Theory states there is a Vacuum  at the Sub-Atomic level, called the Quantum Vacuum Field.

 

Hinduism differs here.

 

It states that there is no vacuum but Ether that contains Electricity.

 

I recently delivered a Lecture on this subject.

 

I shall post an article and Video on this shortly.

 

Now Power from Purusha Sukta.

 

 

The first shlokha of purusha-sooktha reads as follows:
Sahasra sirsha purusha: | sahasraksha: sahasrapaa |
Sa bhUmim vishvato vRtvA | atyatishTad daSAngulam ||

If it is deciphered normally, we get the following meaning:

With Thousands of heads, Thousands of eyes, and Thousands of feet, he (the supreme god) moves, as all of creation verily is he uncountable. He is beyond the grasp of the hands of men.

Now let us see how Mr. Satish Chandra has deciphered:

Out of the ten directions, in 8 directions excluding earth and sky and by firmly installing 8 gadgets (alternators) on the circumference of a circle, which contains numerous positive and negative charges, such that each one will face their own charges i.e. positive to positive and negative to negative and by rotating a runner like earth in a cylindrical way (in the centre) in between them will generate energy.

Based on his interpretation, he has come up with a prototype (see the first picture below) where he has used four magnets (static alternators) and one motor (runner) in the centre.

 

The common runner and the static alternators are mechanically isolated from each other and are magnetically coupled.

 

Just by rotating the common runner all the static alternators generate power independently.

 

The common runner may be rotated by means of a diesel engine or water turbine or steam turbine or an electrical motor.

 

For the prototype model he has used a 126 Watts of motor. Using this he is able to drive power of 303 Watts power for 12 chimney bulbs and 8 tube-lights (See the second picture below).

 

 Motor Based on veia_1.jpg

Motor That runs based on Veda

 Tube light shine_vedic_2.jpg

Tube Lights shine out power by Vedas

 

 

Taking this concept further an Organisation has a Project for Power Generation.

 

However, his fascination with finding the “better way” of energy generation and inspiration by the theory that ancient Vedas are encoded knowledge of the mankind passed on through thousands of years in the form of religious prayers and rituals. pushed him into deep study of the sacred writings, especially the Purusha Sookta, which proved to be a treasury of scientific knowledge in energy generation.

For the past 29 years Satishchandra spends every free moment of his busy life pursuing the intellectual discoveries of our forefathers which he decrypted in deep meditation. And what rich and beautiful discoveries these are! After years of rebuking and ridicule, the scientific world is finally taking notice and recognizes that yes, Satishchandra was right by persisting in his pursuit of the ancient truths that we only are beginning to understand now, with all our advanced science.

His prototype of a static alternator built exactly as per instructions of the first Sloka of the Purusha Sookta gave further inspiration for further scientific research into the links between the Vedic and modern science. What is most fascinating, is that the principles of physics exhibited in Vedic alternator are the same as those of particle accelerators, electron storage rings, pulse lasers and other most advanced achievements of modern physics that concentrate and focus the magnetic field.

The Vedic static alternator has been patented as an offering at the lotus feet of Mother India

Vedas In Bali Islands Catur Veda Sira

In Uncategorized on April 30, 2014 at 18:45

Efforts to wipe out Hinduism and the Hindu Scriptures have been made.

 

And it has been successful in a limited way, thanks to the oral traditions of the Vedas  and the unstinting followers of the Vedas, The Brahmins.

 

I have posted how the Great African Religion was literally wiped out to the extent that even the natives of Africa still believe that they have been tribal

and mostly uncivilized.

 

Similar attempts have been made and ae being made about Indonesia and especially Bali Islands

 

You can get the information from the web that Hinduism  entered Bali some time around  First Century BC, this too is given out in a condescending

manner.

 

Hinduism came to Indonesia from India in the fifth century CE. It was gradually replaced by Buddhism, which was the main religion of Sumatra and Javauntil it in turn was displaced by the coming of Islam from the 14th century CE. However, due to “cultural barriers”, Bali became the only part of Indonesia to remain Hindu.[1][2]

 

Hindu influences reached the Indonesian Archipelago as early as first century. There are several theories as to how Hinduism reached Indonesia. The Vaishya idea is that intermarriage occurred between Indian traders/merchants and Indonesian natives. Another theory (Kshatriya) believes that defeated soldiers from India found solace in Indonesia. Third, the Brahmana take a more traditional point of view that missionaries spread Hinduism to the islands. Lastly, the nationalist (Bhumiputra) theory is that Indonesians chose the culture themselves after having traveled to India.’

 

The position is,

 

Hinduism in its Vedic form has been the Religion of Indonesian islands.

 

The Ramayana and the Mahabharata are still being told there with vaiations.

 

Tamils History state that  these areas were conquered by the Tamil Kings of the Sangam Era, about 200o years ago.

 

Vedas were being chanted and a version of the Vedas , called ‘Catur Veda Sirah, The Head of Four Vedas’

 

Gatothgaja Statue In Bali

Gatothgaja In Bali

 

The emphasis seems to be more on Vishnu Worship.

 

 “The Indonesian, particularly Balinese Hindus today didn’t have the complete Samhita of Catur Veda.

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

But some palm-leaf manuscripts we called Catur Veda Sirah, The Head of Four Vedas, were available under some hereditary Brahmin’s custody and government library.

 

The Rik, Yajus, and Sama’s “heads” full of clearly Vaishnavite meaning and established Lord Sriman Narayana’s supremacy above other deities.

 

The Atharva Sirah invokes other divine names such as Siva, Brahma, or even Skanda, Kumara, and Ganapati.

 

But from careful analysis, we also can conclude them finally as glorifying hymns for Lord Sriman Narayana.

 

The different names actually do  not refer to various deities but The Supreme Lord Narayana. These are the texts of Balinese Caturveda Sirah. …..

 

 

Balinese Version of The Veda.

 

Sang Hyang Rigveda Sirah

atha puruso ha vai narayano kaumayata prajaha srijeyeti| narayanat prano jayate manaha sarvendriyani ca kham vayur jyotir apah pruthvi visvasya dharani| narayanad brahma jayate| narayanad rudra jayate|narayanad indro jayate| narayanat prajapatih prajayate|narayanad dvadasa-aditya rudra vasavah sarvani chandansi| narayanadeva samutpadyante| narayanat pravartante|narayane praliyante| etad rigveda sirodhite||

Then The Supreme Person Narayana fastened the wish: May I create! From Narayana the life force is created. Narayana created mind, all senses, and also the sky, air, light (or fire), water, earth, and Narayana is the sustainer of everything (or the whole universe). From Narayana Brahma is born. Narayana created Rudra, Indra, and Prajapati. From Narayana the twelve Adityas, eleven Rudras, eight Vasus, and all Vedic metres are born. They originate from Narayana, they act by Narayana’s energy, and they finally dissolve in Narayana. Thus the head meaning of Rigveda has been studied.

In this Sirah, we try to comprehend Sriman Narayana by His unlimited opulence. At beginning the Sirah considered many material forces, then their great presiding deities (the abhimani-Devatas). Finally, the supremacy of Lord Narayana was established, by identifying Him as the original cause of everything. Remind us with the aphorismjanmadhyasya yatah of Brahmasutra.

Sang Hyang Yajurveda Sirah

atha nityo narayanah| brahma narayanah| sivas ca narayanah| sakras ca narayanah| kalas ca narayanah| disas ca narayanah| vidisas ca narayanah| urdhvam ca narayanah| adhas ca narayanah| antar bahis ca narayanah| narayana evedam sarvam| yad bhutam yas ca bhavyam| niskalanko niranjano nirvikalpah nirakhyatah| suddho deva eko narayanah| na dvitiyo’sti kascit| ya evam veda visnureva bhavati| ya etad yajurveda sirodhite||

The eternal Sriman Narayana is Brahma (The Primary), Narayana is Siva (The Auspicious), Narayana is Sakra (The Master), Narayana is the immortal time, Narayana is the four points of compass and the points between. Narayana is zenith and nadir, the interior and exterior. Narayana is this all; what has come into existence and all that will come into existence. The inconceivable One, the unstainable One, the unimpaired One, pure One Supreme Godhead, One without second, The Supreme Lord Narayana. He, who has come to realized this, will come to Vishnu. Thus the head meaning of Yajurveda has been studied.

Here we find mentioned many Devatas’ name. But we have to remember, this Sirah acts as a Vedic conclusion. By conclusive word of deva ekah or na dvitiyah, we know these different names only referred to One Personality. In other word the Sirah was saying, “That Brahma, you called as the supreme, is Narayana. That Siva actually Narayana. That Sakra actually Narayana. etc.” The Rigveda Sirah considered different personalities, but one of them, that Sriman Narayana, was the Supreme Origin of all. The Yajurveda Sirah only talked about One Single Personality, by addressing Him with various name. Here we also can use the methods of Sri Madhvacharya to solve something seem like ambiguity or contradictive statements of the Vedas. We can understand the words as Niravakasha (have only one meaning) and Savakasha (may interpreted by some meanings base on context). Brahma, Siva, Sakra, etc. could be interpreted in several meanings. viz. the name of demigods; the descriptions of Narayana’s quality; or as various names of Narayana. The second and third meaning was fit in this context by considering the phrase deva ekah narayana na dvitiyah. We called Narayana Brahma, because He is The First Person. We called Him Siva because He is all auspicious, etc. But it doesn’t mean asvatantra (dependent) gods, named Brahma or Siva, etc. was equal or same as Narayana, the Paramasvatantra (The Supremely Independent). In conclusive word, this Sirah meditates on Lord Narayana’s kalyana-guna

Sang Hyang Samaveda Sirah

Om ityagre vyavaharet| nama iti pascat| narayanayetyuparistat| om ityekaksaram| nama iti dvi aksare| narayanayeti pancaksarani| etad vai narayanasya-astaksaram padam| yo ha vai narayanasya-astaksaram padam abhyeti| anapabhruvah sarvamayureti| vindate prajapatyam rayasposam gopatyam tato’mrta tvam asnute| etat samaveda sirodhite.

First pronounce Om, then Namo, and finally Narayanaya. Om is the one syllable form, Namo is the two syllables form, and Narayanaya is the five syllables form. This is indeed the eight syllables mantra of Lord Narayana. Whoever goes to this eight syllables mantra of Lord Narayana, will be free from any curse during the whole course of his life. He will reach the status of Prajapati (Lord over beings), accumulating abundant of wealth, ownership over cattle and finally reaches immortality. Thus the head meaning of Samaveda has been studied.

This Sirah presenting Astaksara-mantra or Thirumantram as the conclusion of Samaveda. The mantra was actually the sound representation of the deity. There is no different between Astaksara-mantra and The Supreme Personality of Godhead Narayana Himself. One who attained realization on Astaksara-mantra, directly experience the Divine Being of Sriman Narayana Himself. He totally immersed in The Lord’s nama-rupa-guna-lila, His Holy Name, Divine Form, Qualities, and Pastimes. Indeed, this Sirah is the part of Vedic Narayana-suktam.

Sang Hyang Atharvaveda Sirah

Om suryatidam nirmalam satatam| candramrtvat sakalam| sa sadasiva sa suryam idapyam jagatvam| brahma surya surya prabhavam| mahesvaram mahadevam sambhu sankaras ca sivam sadasivam paramasivam| tava suksmam paramgataya tava sa surya| padmanabha narayana indram suryaprakasam| catur-bhumim asamam asisam krstam sukham sajanam| sthavarajangamam lata vrksa sapraroham mrga prajadhipati| om sivam sarva sakala maranam| nada vindvam bhaskaram omkaram ekaksaram| kalagnika-suryam tryaksara angam panca brahmanam dvyaksaram| narayanaskanda ganapati kumarastri siva surya sa etad atharvaveda sirodhite.

Om this is the eternal illuminating pure sun, the soothing ray emanating moon. The Sun of Sadasiva, the cosmic Brahma sun, the all shining sun, The Great Master (Mahesvara), The Great Lord (Mahadeva), The Self born One (Sambhu), The Attractive One (Sankara), The Auspicious (Siva), The Ever Auspicious (Sadasiva), The Most Auspicious (Paramasiva), The Subtlest One (Suksma), The Sun of highest ultimate goal (Paramgata). The Sun of the Lord with lotus-like navel (Padmanabha), sustainer of the whole universe (Narayana), and the King of all kings (Indra). Without parallel in the fourteen worlds, the blissful Lord of saintly persons, humans, animals, trees, vines, and other creatures. The highest Lord of all beings (Prajadhipati). The most auspicious Om, the end of everything, the lustrousnada and bindu of the Single Sacred Syllable Om. The fire of the Sun of the time. Embodiment of three syllables, five Brahmas, and two syllables. The Supreme Narayana, Skanda, Ganapati, Kumara, Devi, Siva, and Surya. Thus the head meaning of Atharvaveda has been studied.”

The Mahabharata narratives as found in present Wayang consist of folk-narratives developed by Wayang puppet-masters and bards over the ages, as also the narratives of Old Javanese Literature, which perhaps itself owes much to Folk-narratives. Kakawin Bhāratayuddha is an Old Javanese poetical rendering of some Parvas of the Mahabharata by Mpu Sedah and his brother Mpu Panuluh in Indian meters (kāvya or Kakawin). The commencement of this work was exactly November 6, 1157. It is by far the oldest extant Javanese work. Some important Kakawins relevant to our present discussion are – Kakawin Arjunawiwaha, by Mpu Kanwa, – 1030, Kakawin Krsnayana, Kakawin Bharatayuddha, by Mpu Sedah and Mpu Panuluh, 1157, Kakawin Hariwangsa Kakawin Gatotkacaśraya, Kakawin Arjunawijaya, by Mpu Tantular, and Kakawin Parthayajña.

With reference to Old Javanese literature and particularly Wayang puppet show, let us now see what major variations we find in the Indonesian narrative from its Indian origin. Let us also see the similarities of some Indian variations with the Indonesian narrative.

Shantanu-Satyavati-Prashara-Vyasa

In the wayang kulit/leather-puppet performance Prabu Matsyapati or Durgandana, is the King of Wiroto(Virata). He is the son of Basukiswara, a just and powerful king of Cedhiwiyasa. Virataraja Matsya is Satyabati’s brother. Satyabati or Durgandini makes love to Bambang Palasara (Rishi Parashara) in a boat and produces five children.

History.

The earliest recorded history was about the famous Mulavarman of Kutai in Kalimantan. He donated thousands of cows to agnihotri Brahmins and performed the biggest Yagna throughout the history of Nusantara. The Ramayana and also some Sanskrit works, called the present day Kalimantan as Barhina-dvipa, which later became Borneo. At the time of Mulavarman, the Indian supposed to include Nusantara as a part of Greater Kalinga. So by Mulavarman’s virtuous performance of grand sacrificial ceremony, his kingdom could be designated as Kalingottamam, the word perhaps changed to present day Kalimantan. According to some historian, the word Vaprakeshwara found in Mulavarman inscriptions has some connection with Lord Siva, and then they concluded that Mulavarman and his subjects were Saivas. But the form of his Yagna performance was Vedic. It didn’t seem involve the Agamic or Tantric elements of any sort. The lack of archaeological remains of temple worship from the time of Mulavarman supposed to prove this probability.

Their worship differs from Hindu worship in minor details, essence remains the same.

Festivals in Bali.

Nyepi -  31 March 2014
This holiday is the Balinese New Year, called Icaka New Year – a day of total silence throughout the island. No activity, no traffic is allowed on the roads; no fire may be lit for 24 hours. Great purification and sacrificial rites are held on the day before, so as to banish evil spirits from every place on the Island – Ogoh Ogoh figures are built, then burned.

Saraswati 8 March and 4 October 2014
This day is devoted to Dewi Saraswati, the Goddess of  Science & Knowledge. Books of knowledge, manuscripts and the Wedas are blessed and special offerings are made for them.

As with other religious days in Bali, there are also ritual activities before and after the day of Saraswati itself. The day before the Saraswati is called Pengeradanaan, a day to prepare for Saraswati both spiritually and physically. Books are cleaned and properly arranged.

On Saraswati Day, the Balinese make offerings to their books. Students celebrate at school, usually in the morning. The Saraswati Day is not a day off work, so all offices are open.

The day after Saraswati is called Banyu Pinaruh. “Banyu” means water and “Pinaruh” means wisdom. Taken together, the words mean that man must have wisdom which always flows like water, and is useful for mankind. Early in the morning of Banyu Pinaruh Day, people will go the beaches, rivers and springs to purify themselves and pray for wisdom.

Pagerwesi – 12 March and 8 October 2014
Pagerwesi commemorates the day upon which an ancient battle between good and evil was fought. The word “Pagerwesi” means “iron fence”, and reflects the purpose of this important event: it is the day to strengthen one’s fortifications against evil. The correlation between Pagerwesi and the Saraswati is that knowledge is so powerful that it must be protected from bad influences. Pagerwesi Day reminds people to be wise and more aware of the function and power of knowledge.

The Balinese celebrate the Pagerwesi ceremony every six months according to the Balinese calendar. The celebration is usually three days after the Saraswati day.

During Pagerwesi, people make special offerings for the dead who have not yet been cremated. Observances are usually held at every house compound, and at temples.

 

The Galungan Ceremony -  21 May   and  17 December 2014
One of Bali’s major festivals celebrates the return of Balinese gods and ancestors to Bali. For ten days, Balinese families will entertain and welcome with prayers and offerings, along with ceremonies to cleanse and balance the inner and outer energy of the island. Galungan features, among other things, barong dancing from temple to temple in the village. The festival symbolizes the victory of good over evil. The origin of Galungan is a mystery, but essentially it is believed to be the beginning of the week in which the gods and ancestors descend to earth, and good triumphs over evil.

The holiday is celebrated by the fitting of ‘penjor’, tall bamboo poles beautifully decorated with woven coconut palm leaves, fruit, cakes and flowers, on the right side of every house entrance. People are attired in their finest clothes and jewels on this day.

Hinduism Fifty Thousand Years Old Rig Veda

In Hinduism on April 28, 2014 at 12:29

 

The first Human Literature of th world, The Rig Veda of the Hindu’s is dated around 5000 BC

 

It refers to River Sarasvati which flowed once in India and joined the Arabian Sea.

 

Satellite  images have confirmed that river Sarasvati existed and there have research papers stating that a Civilization flourished on the banks of the River Sarasvati.

 

Hidden History of Huamn Race

Hidden Archaeology Book By Cremo

 

Please read my posts on this.

 

Now there are research papers quoting the Rig Veda , and the recent archaeological  evidence , state that there existed another River from the Himalayas

 

joining the Arabian Sea.

 

And there were urban settlements , numbering around 800!

 

And the same research also states that The RigVeda has also been speaking of this Land mass’ culture.

 

And adds that the Hindus lived even 50, 000 years ago practicing Sanatana Dharma.

 

So, the scientists noticed that it
appeared to be older than the European cultures. Since the European
languages were related to the Indian language Sanskrit of the Vedas
that could only mean that the European peoples had to have come out
of India somehow and then gone to Europe with their languages that
differentiated into Russian, English, Spanish, German and the rest of
them. The European investigators didn’t like that idea because it would
have given the Vedic culture a position superior to their own. So, these
early cities in the Indus Valley like Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro have
been identified by archaeologists such as Richard Meadows and others
as being non-Vedic. They think the Vedic culture came into India maybe
3500 years ago.Isn’t that inconsistent with the concept of the Vedas of
the Krishna character who comes and says the universe is teeming with
life and appears to have knowledge about other habitations in the cosmos
and is talking from an age that would go back at least 9,500 years?In these
ancient Sanskrit writings, there is no hint at all that the culture came from
anywhere else.And if they are the prime source and if the Vedic literature
can be taken literally, then it implies that there were cities there inhabited
at least several thousand years ago.

Yes, and there has been other research going on in that area. For
example, the Rg Veda, which is one of the earliest Vedic literatures,
talks about a mighty river called the Saraswati that flowed from the
Himalayan mountains down to the Arabian Sea, down in that area of
northwestern India. And such a river doesn’t exist there today. So,
what happened is that people thought therefore the Rg Veda cannot
be talking about India. It has to be talking about some other place
outside of India where there was some kind of river.

But what happened that is quite interesting a few years ago is that
archaeologists in India started studying the satellite photographs from
American satellites like LANDSAT had been providing and they
noticed there was a dry river channel that began up in the Himalayas,
a huge river that went down almost to that Bay of Khambaht
(Cambay) we are talking about (the location of the underwater
city site). And then later, they found that on the banks of that river
there were 800 to 1000 urban sites, archaeological sites.So, it does
appear that what the Rg Veda was talking about, a mighty river lined
with cities in India over 5,000 years ago – that has to be true. The last
time that river had water in it was over 5,000 years ago?Is there a
possibility that there could have been some sort of non-human
co-habitation on the continent of India let’s say 50,000 years ago
that could explain all of the Vedas?

Yes. In Kashmir, the valley of Kashmir, it appears it was many years
ago a lake. Now, there is an ancient Sanskrit manuscript that tells of
a lake that existed in that area, so that account is there in some ancient
writings. Now, according to modern geological reporting, about 40,000
years ago Kashmir was indeed a lake in the valley of Kashmir in northern
India. It was covered by a huge lake and it was blocked on the southern
end by a little range of mountains. And at a certain point, something
happened and it broke open and the lake drained out. That happened
about 40,000 to 50,000 years ago. So, it is interesting that you’ve got
this ancient historical record that talks about this lake. And if it is to be
taken literally, then it means that somebody must have seen this lake
as it existed 50,000 years ago and wrote about it.”

Forbidden Archaeology

Forbidden Archeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race by Michael A. Cremo and Richard L. Thompson quickly became a best selling underground classicwith over 200,000 copies sold and translations in more than 13 languages  This massive work spawned waves of resistance and wonder amongst the scientific community, with over 900 pages of well-documented evidence suggesting that modern man did not evolve from ape man, but instead has co-existed with apes for millions of years!

Michael Cremo lectures to academic, popular, and scientific audiences around the world in a continuing challenge to Darwinian evolution.

I shall be writing on this in detail.

Hinduism is over 50,000 years Old.

Microbiology Darwinism In Ancient Hindu Texts Vedas

In Hinduism on April 14, 2014 at 10:46

 

Ancient Vedic Indians, during the Vedic period have developed advanced knowledge in Microbiology.

 

Biology and Surgery were developed and practiced.

 

They knew the classification of Species.

 

Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution , Survival of the Fittest was expressed.

 

Microbiology in The Vedas

An Santi Parva of Mahabharata,Section XV Arjuna speaks of the world of Microbes,’which ,though not seen by the naked eyes, support Life”

 

Talks of Darwinism when he says that the strongest survive by feeding and annihilating them.

 

The Mobile and the Immobile world is Food for Living creatures.

 

Jainism had such an advanced knowledge and Piety, the Jain Monks use to sweep the path they travel gently with a fan made of Peacock feathers to make sure that the smaller organisms are not unintentionally killed by them.

 

Kara , Dhooshana,  Inderjith and Ravana’s Moola Sena were adept at fighting biological warfare.

 

Our Vedic literature recorded about 740 plants and 250 animals.

¨      The first attempt of classification is observed in Chandyogya Upanishad, which classified animals into three categories — Jivaja(Viviparous = giving birth to young ones), e.g. mammals, Andaja(Oviparous = egg lying), e.g. birds, reptiles, insects and worms, andUdbhija (Vegetal origin), e.g. minute animals. Post-Vedic Indian literature, such as Susruta Samhita (600 BC) classified all ‘substances’ into sthavara (immobile), e.g. plants, jangama (mobile), e.g. animals.

¨      Plants were further subdivided into Vanaspati (fruit yielding non-flowering plants), Vriksha (both fruit yielding and flowering plants),Virudha (shrubs and creepers), and Osadhi (plants that die with ripening of fruits).

Susruta described in detail the parts of plants, such as Ankura (sprout), Mula (root), Kanda (bulb or stem), Patra (leaf),Pushpa (flower), Phala (fruit), etc.

¨      Susruta Samhita also mentioned about classification of animals, such as Kulacara (those herbivores who frequent the river banks, e.g. elephant, buffalo, etc.), Matsya (fish), Janghala (wild herbivorous quadrupeds, e.g. deer), Guhasaya (carnivorous quadrupeds like tiger, lion, etc.). Susruta Samhita also records some observations on snakes (both venomous and non-venomous) and leeches.

 

They knew about Microbes and about fermentation.

 

They were aware of the exact combinations and temperatures at which fermentation takes place in preparing Buttermilk,Curds,Liquor.

 

The existence of Lives , which are smaller and Microscopic was analysed.

 

Germ theory of diseases was first established by Vedic Rishis and was recorded in Vedas.

 Vedas are first text in the world to record nexus between microbes and disease.

In Vedas, prime etiological factors of diseases mentioned are–

 

a) Endogenous toxins, its accumulations, and causation of a disease; b) ‘Krimi’ –’Drisya’ (visible), ‘Adrisya’ (invisible); and c) Imbalance of tridosha.

Rigveda, Yajurveda, and Atharvaveda followed by Āyurvedas provide rich insight into microbial sciences that existed in Bharat many thousands of years ago.

In Rigveda (1/191), Rishị Agastya pinpoints out that there are two types of poisonous creatures viz. those exceedingly poisonous and others are less poisonous.

Of them, some are visible venomous, while others are invisible one.

Some of them live in water, while others live on earth.

Perhaps Ṛsị Agastya is the first person to state that invisible creatures are also toxin producers.

He also prescribes antidotes as remedy for the poison. Atharvaveda reiterates that whenever there is accumulation of toxins within the body, disease results.

Use of Biological weapons of Mass Destruction was known.

There are large number of suktas in the Vedas which provides information about microbiological knowledge in the ancient Vedic texts.

KankotanSukta by Rishi Agastaya (Rigveda 1/191); KrimighnamSukta (Atharvaveda 5/23), KriminashnamSukta (AV. 2/32), KrimijambhanamSukta

(AV. 2/31) all by Rishi Kanva; RakshognamSukta (AV. 5/29) by Rishi Chatan; KriminashnamSukta (AV. 4/37) by Rishi Badrayani and other suktas

provides insight into the Microbial sciences in Vedas.

Not only the Vedas, Ayurvedic texts like Charaka Samhita, Susruta Samhita, Ashtanga Hridaya and many others provides rich insight into Vedic Microbiology.
