Kohinoor Diamond British Royal Crown Is Bhadrakali’s Eye

In Hinduism on February 24, 2015 at 19:02

The Kohinor Diamond is a cursed one , bringing misfortune to the owner.

 

The Kohinoor Diamond, meaning Mountain of Light in Persian, is now with the British, and is embedded in the Royal Crown.

The Kohinoor Diamond.

Was mined in Kolluru Mines, Guntur District, Andhra Pradesh,India.

 

It was 793  when it was uncut.

 

It is now a 105.6 metric carats diamond, weighing 21.6 grammes .

 

Exact value of the stone is not known, but in the 1500s it was considered that the diamond’s value corresponds to about half of the world’s total production costs in one day. Of course, with a diamond so unique, it is hard to put a monetary value attached to it.

The fact that it never changed hands through a documented sale doesn’t help our evaluation. The Kohinoor was always stolen, bartered or gifted and never sold.

As comparison the most expensive documented sale of a diamond occurred around 60 years ago, when the Graff pink was sold in Hong Kong for $46 million.

The Graff pink weighs “only” 24,78 carats compared to the 106 carats that the Koh-i-noor weighs though.

Even if the value of the Kohinoor diamond is not known, it is part of the Crown Jewels, and the whole value of the Crown Jewels is between $10 and $12 billion.

 Kohinoor was the Eye of  Bhadrakali in Warangal,Andhra Pradesh.

 

It was donated by the Kakatiya Kings.

 

In 1323,Ghiyath al-dhin Thughlak  defeatedthe Kakatiyas and true to Islamic style vandalised the Temple and took away the Kohinoor.

He was late killed by his son.

The Kohinoor changed many hands before it landed with the Maharaja Of Punjab, Maharaja Ranjith Singh.

He donated the Kohinoor to Puri Jagannath Temple and died.

The British refused to hand over the diamond to the Temple.

In 1850, the Kohinoor was stolen and was delivered to the British.

Fearing the Curse, the present Queen Elizabeth avoids wearing the Kohinoor and wears the Imperial State Crown.

The diamond remained with Khilji dynasty, and later passed on to the succeeding dynasties of the Delhi Sultanate, until it came into the possession of Babur, a Turco-Mongol war lord, who invaded India and established the Mughal Empire in 1526. He called the stone ‘the Diamond of Bābur’ at the time, although it had been called by other names before it came into his possession. Both Babur and his son and successor, Humayun mention in their memoirs the origins of ‘the Diamond of Bābur’.

A 1757 miniature of Ahmad Shāh Durrānī, the Emir of Afghanistan, in which the Koh-i-Noor diamond is seen hanging on the front of hiscrown, above his forehead.

The diamond remained locked in the Mughal treasury until it was taken out by Shah Jahan, the fifth Mughal emperor. Shah Jahan, famous for building the Taj Mahal in Agra, had the stone placed into his ornate Peacock Throne. His son, Aurangazeb, imprisoned his ailing father at nearby Agra Fort. While in the possession of Aurangazeb, it was cut by Hortenso Borgia, a Venetian lapidary, who was so clumsy that he reduced the weight of the stone to 186 carats.[12] Legend has it that he had the Koh-i-Noor positioned near a window so that Shāh Jahān could see the Tāj Mahal only by looking at its reflection in the stone. Following the invasion of Nadir Shah, the ruler of Afsharid Persia in 1739 and the sacking of Agra and Delhi. Along with the Peacock Throne, he also carried off the Koh-i-Noor to Persia in 1739. It was allegedly Nādir Shāh who exclaimed Koh-i-Noor! when he finally managed to obtain the famous stone,[4] and this is how the stone gained its present name. There is no reference to this name before 1739.

The valuation of the Koh-i-Noor is given in the legend that one of Nader Shah’s consorts supposedly said, “If a strong man should take five stones, and throw one north, one south, one east, and one west, and the last straight up into the air, and the space between filled with gold and gems, that would equal the value of the Koh-i-Noor.”

After the assassination of Nādir Shāh in 1747, the stone came into the hands of his general, Ahmad Shāh Durrānī, who later became the Emir of Afghanistan. In 1830, Shujāh Shāh Durrānī, the deposed Emir of Afghanistan and a descendant of Ahmad Shah Durrani, managed to flee with the diamond. He went to Lahore where the Sikh Maharaja Ranjit Singh forced him to surrender the stone and took its possession.’

Britain is still hand over the Kohinoor Diamond to india, despite repeated demands.

Muslims Adapt Or Leave Julia Gillard Australia PM Hoax

In Australia, terrorism on December 17, 2014 at 13:25

I saw a message attributed to Julia Gillard,PM of Australia asking Muslims to either adapt or Leave.

 

I crosschecked the information and found that this is a hoax.

 

Well, Wish some one had the Guts to say it!

 

Taliba attacks scholl Peshawar.jpg

Taliban Attacks school in Peshawar,Pakistan

 

W O W ! She Did It
Again!!!

Australia says NO — This will be the second Time Julia Gillard has done this!

She sure isn’t backing down on her hard line stance and one has to appreciate her belief in the rights of her native countrymen.

A breath of fresh air to see someone lead. Australian Prime Minister does it again!!

The whole world needs a leader like this!

Prime Minister Julia Gillard – Australia

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.

Separately, Gillard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying she supported spy agencies
monitoring the nation’s mosques. Quote:
‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT… Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.’

‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.’

‘We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese,

Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language!’

‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’

‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.’

‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.’

‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’

NOTE: IF we circulate this amongst ourselves in Canada & USA , WE will find the courage to start speaking and voicing the same truths.

If you agree please SEND THIS ON and ON, to as many people as you know…

 

Analysis.

This message, which circulates via email and social media, claims that Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard recently told Muslims living in Australia that they should leave the country if they wished to live under Islamic Sharia law. According to the message, the Gillard government is targeting radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks and supports the monitoring of Mosques by spy agencies. The message, couched as a news report, goes on to quote a diatribe about immigration supposedly delivered by Gillard.

However, Julia Gillard did not make the comments attributed to her. In fact, the message is nothing more than a revamped version of much earlier messages that involved previous Australian Prime Ministers. The first version of the message claimed that it was Prime Minister John Howard who made the remarks. A later version attributed the comments to Prime Minister Kevin Rudd. While the original Howard version did contain some elements of truth, both the Rudd and Gillard versions have no basis in fact.

Sibi Story of Mahabharata In Japan

In Hinduism on July 22, 2014 at 10:53

Many of us are familiar with the story of King Sibi narrated in Mahabharata.

 

A falcon was chasing a Dove and the Dove sought refuge in Sibi, who was the ancestor of Lord Rama.

 

Sibi is recorded as the ancestor of Chola Kings and the Cholas had the title of Sembiyan.

 

The Tamil name for Sibi was Sembiyan.

Sibi  Buddhist petroglyphs in Pakistan,jpg

Shatial, Karakoram Highway: Buddhist petroglyphs near road: Sibi-Jataka (body offering: rescue of dove by boddhisattva’s offering of his own flesh to the falcon), stupa, inscriptions in Sogdian, Brahmi, Karoshti; after 4th century CE. Pakistan, Northern Areas

 

As the Dove was the natural food for the Falcon, it demanded that it be given its food.

 

To keep up his word and driven by compassion Sibi cut a portion of thigh equivalent to the weight of the Dove.

 

The scale tilted towards the Dove.

 

King Sibi continued to cut away portions of his body, to match the weight of the Dove.

 

As it was not possible, he sat on the scale himself.

 

It was Indra who came in the form of the Falcon.

 

He blessed Indra that His name will be remembered for compassion.

 

(Mahabharata, Aranya parva, adhyayas 130-131.)

 

The story appears in Japan in two versions.

 

One version is  the same. Only the pronunciations are different.

 

Sibi is pronounced as Shibbi (strong empasis on the h) .

 

The other version is from the Jatakamala.

 

In this story Indira dressed as a blind person approaches King Sibbi requesting for eye-sight. King Sibbi pierces his own eyes and gives them to the blind man asking him to use it to retain his eye-sight.

Japanese Version:-

King Shibi is believed to be a previous incarnation of Shakyamuni Buddha. In this story a heavenly being named Bishamon approaches the God Taishaku and tells him ‘There is a great Bodhisattva named King Shibi. Soon he will become a Buddha.’ On hearing this Taishaku decides to test to test the sincerity of the King’s practice in pursuing enlightenment. He transforms himself into a hawk and instructs Bishamon to take on the appearance of a dove.

Chased after by the hawk, the dove to escapes and flies into the arms of King Shibi. Perched on the branch of a tree, the hawk says to the King, “Please let me have the dove back. It is what I have been trying to get.” King Shibbi replies, “No, I can’t because I have vowed to protect all living things. I cannot return it to you.”

The hawk then points out , “I am one of the living things that you have vowed to save. If you take away my food for today, I will be unable to live tomorrow.”

The King then offers to cut off a piece of his own flesh and gave it to the hawk. As the King proceeded to cut his own flesh, the hawk measures it using a balance and found the dove to be consistently heavier than the muscle of the King. No matter how much muscle was added, the weight was lighter than the total weight of the dove. Finally, the King cuts all the flesh off of his body.

The King tries desperately to put his entire body on the balance, but falls to the ground. He then exclaims, “I once made a pledge to save all living beings! I cannot let such minor sufferings defeat me!”

At last he successfully climbs onto the balance. Watching the entire scene, all the heavenly beings praise the King saying, “He did not begrudge his life, even for a bird. He is a person who best suits the title of Bodhisattva.

Suddenly, Taishaku casts off his disguised figure as a hawk and regains his original appearance.

He says to the King, “Don’t you have any pain or regret?” The King replies, “I have no regrets whatsoever. My heart is rather full of joy.”

No sooner did the King utter these words than did his body change back into what it used to be.

Varuna Temple Manora Island Karachi Pakistan

In Hinduism on July 12, 2014 at 09:08

Hinduism pays highest respect to Water, one of the Five elements, Earth,Water, Fire, Air and Ether.

 

Please read my post ‘Place of Water in Hinduism’

Varuna, God Of Water.jpg

Varuna, God Of Water.

 

A temple of Varuna is in Manora Island,Karachi, Pakistan.

Varuna Temple,Manora Island,Karachi,Pakistan.

 

Shri Varun Dev Mandir is a Hindu temple located in Manora Island in KarachiSindhPakistan.

The temple is devoted to Varuna, the god of the oceans in Hindu mythology.

 

The exact year of the temple’s construction or foundation is not known (it may be thousands of years old),but it is widely believed that the current structure was built in around 1917–18.

Today, the temple is in a dilapidated state as humid winds are eating into the structure and the rich carvings on the walls of the temple are slowly eroding. At present, the building is not used for worship and the last ritual was held in the 1950s.

Currently, This temple belongs to the Hindu Council of Pakistan. According to a legend, it was around 16th century when a wealthy sailor by the name of Bhojomal Nancy Bhattia bought Manora Island from the Khan of Kalat, who owned most of the land along the coastline at that time and then his family commissioned a temple on the lay terrain.

In Hinduism on May 16, 2014 at 09:53

The city of Lahore,Pakistan was founded by Lava, meaning Particle, was founded by  Lava, son of Lord Rama.

 

The city of  Lopburi Thailand and Laos were named after him.

The LohanasKurmisLeva Patidars and Leva Gurjars are present-day Indo-Aryan ethnic groups who claim to be descendants of Lava.

 

A legend based on oral traditions holds that Lahore, known in ancient times as Shehwar Elahi ka thikana (“Den of Shehwar” in Sanskrit),was founded by Prince Lava or Loh, the son of Sita and Rama, the Hindu deity in the RamayanaKasur was founded by his twin brother Prince Kusha.

To this day, Lahore Fort has a vacant temple dedicated to Lava (also pronounced Loh, hence Loh-awar or “The Fort of Loh”).

Ptolemy, the celebrated 2nd-century Egyptian astronomer and geographer, mentions in his Geographia a city called Labokla  situated on the route between the Indus River and Palibothra, or Pataliputra (Patna) mostly, in a tract of country called Kasperia (Kashmir). It was described as extending along the rivers Bidastes or Vitasta (Jhelum), Sandabal or Chandra Bhaga (Chenab), and Adris or Iravati (Ravi). This city may have been ancient Lahore.
