There are strange stories about the appearance of animals and the origin of animals and birds in the Brahmana literature.

The reddish appearance of a white horse’s mouth is explained as follows:-

“Agni went away from the gods; he entered the water. The gods said to Prajapati: Go thou in search of him; to thee, his own father, he will reveal himself He became a white horse, and went in search of him. He found him on a lotus, having crept forth from the water. He eyed him, and Agni scorched him.  Hence the white horse has, as it were, a scorched or reddish mouth, and indeed is apt to be weak-eyed. Agni thought he had hit and hurt him, and said to him, ‘I grant thee a boon’.

–Satapata Brahmana,7-3-2-14

 

Agni’s mark is also on the shoulder of the Ox:

“For such a one (as an ox) is of Agni’s nature, since its shoulder (bearing the yoke) is as if burnt by fire.”

–Satapata Brahmana,4-5-1-15

“The Asuras persecuted the Devas and came into contact with them. The Devas turned horses (asva) and kicked them with their feet. Thence the horses are called ‘asva’ from ‘as’ to reach. He who obtains this knowledge obtains all he desires. Thence the horse is the swiftest of animals because of its kicking with the hind legs. He who has such a knowledge destroys the consequences of guilt”

–Aitareya Brahmana Vol.1 (Haug’s Vol.2, page 319)

 

This was the more necessary because animals, and even plants avenged in a future existence injuries inflicted on them in this life—Satapata Brahmana, 11-6-1-1

 

The origin of some of the birds and quadrupeds is explained in the following texts:-

“Tvashtri had a three-headed, six eyed son. He had three mouths, and because he was thus shaped, he was called Visva-Rupa (all shape). One of his mouths was Soma-drinking, one spirit-drinking, and one for other food. Indra hated him, and cut off those heads of his. And from the one which was Soma-drinking, a hazel cock sprang forth; hence the latter is of brownish colour, for King Soma is brown. And one which was spirit-drinking, a sparrow sprang; hence the latter talks like one who is joyful, for one who has drank spirits, one talks as one who enjoys himself; And from one which was for other kinds of food, a partridge sprang; whence the latter is exceedingly variegated; ghee-drops have, as it were, dropped on his wings, in one place, and honey drops, as it were, on another; for such like was the food he consumed with that mouth” — –Satapata Brahmana,5-5-4-12

Origin of Lion, Wolf and Trees

“Indra, uninvited, consumed what pure Soma there was in the tub, as the stronger would consume the food for the weaker. But it hurt him; it flowed in all directions from the opening of his vital airs; only from his mouth it did not flow. From what flowed from the nose a lion sprang; and from what flowed from the ears a wolf sprang; and from what flowed from the lower opening wild beasts sprang, with the tiger as their foremost; and what flowed from the upper opening (top of the head whence the soul issues at death), that was foaming spirit. And thrice he spat out; thence were produced the fruits called Kuvala, Karkandu and Badara, three different species of the Jujube tree). Indra became emptied out of everything, for Soma is everything. Being thus purged by Soma

he walked about, as one tottering. The Aswins cured him by this offering… By offering he indeed became better.”

–Satapata Brahmana,5-5-4-8

My Comments:–

These stories are like stories told by the illiterate tribes living in the remotest parts of the forest or hills. But unless they have hidden meanings they would not have survived from 1000 BCE. More over along with such stories we have very high thoughts, big numbers in mathematical order, information about 27 stars, linguistics etc. So we have to do more research into their statements. Foreigners called these writings, silly, childish and gibberish. But Hindus value them as mantras (holy spells or magic spells).

Index to Vedas by Katyayana and Significance of No.432,000! (Post No.4313)

Hindu civilisation has reached its pinnacles during Vedic period itself.

They wrote the first grammar book and they taught grammar in the Vedic school. And even before Panini of seventh century BCE , they had  umpteen grammarians. We were fortunate enough to get the Book of Panini (Seventh Century BCE), but others were lost.

 

We wrote the first Nikandu /Thesaurus and we added the Contents and Index to the Vedas, Even the law book written by Manu, was earlier than Hammurabi who lived in 2600 BCE. The latest version of Manu Smrti, we have today is from second century BCE. Since the name of Manu occurs several times in the RV. Manu refers to Sarasvati river, we know he lived at the time of Sarasvati’s mighty flow. Now due to the satellite picture from NASA and Carbon-14 dating of the underground water by the Bhaba Atomic Research Institute, the date of Sarasvati’s disappearance is fixed 2000 BCE or earlier. So Manu who wrote the original book must have lived well before that. He never mentioned Sati, like the RV. During Vedic period, there was no Sati/widow burning. So the original Manu Smrti belongs to Rig Vedic period. This is confirmed by his definition of Brahmavarta and Aryavarta (Manu Chapter 2). He mentioned the rivers Drsadvati and Sarasvati. Aryas included all the four Varnas/castes according to Rig Veda (10-90).

 

All the anti Shudra verses in the Manusmrti are added to it during the Sunga period. Sunga Kings were Brahmins. Anyone who reads Manu from top to bottom could easily find the interpolated portions. They go against the natural flow of Manusmrti. They are not only controversial but also contradictory.

Beautiful Vedic Index

Katyayana who lived before 600 BCE counted all the hymns, mantras, syllables in the Rik Veda and prepared the Anukramani/ Index. He did a painstaking research and counted everything in the Vedas, leaving no scope for interpolation or corruption.

 

Sarvanukramani (Rig Vedic Index) of Katyayana gives the first word of each hymn, the number of the verses, the name and the family of the poets, the names of the deities and the metres of the verses. Saunaka did another anukramani based on the Anuvakas.

Yajur Veda has three anukramanis .

And we have anukramanis for Sama and Atharva Veda as well, one each.

It is strange that someone had such a scientific approach 2600 years ago, when most of Europe was semi civilised or barbaric. If some society has reached the heights of philosophical thought around 850 BCE (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad), no wonder they have mastered numbers grammar, linguistics and language.

Significance of 432,000

The number of syllables in the Rig Veda is 432,000.

This number has a great significance in Hinduism

The total number of years in Kali Yuga is 432,000 years. Other Yugas have the multiple of this number.

Half baked and biased foreigners argued that Yuga cycles and the big numbers are added to Hindu scriptures later. Now this number 432,000 and the very big numbers in the Brahmanas prove them wrong

Katyayana’s count of Verses in the RV is 10,662 (minus the appendix- 10,402)

The words in the RV – 1,53,826

We have lost lot of our Vedic literature. Even during Vyasa’s time (3100 BCE+), Vedas had become very bulky and unmanageable. So he divided it into four (Rik, Yajur, Sama and Atharvana) and gave the responsibility of teaching it to the future generations by the word of mouth. It is great wonder that tradition has been maintained until today. Brahmins deserve great admiration for doing this wonderful task.

Even with all the google, internet and computers in our hands,we find it difficult to analyse all the 20,000 plus mantras in the four Vedas, leave alone the very huge Brahmana literature.

Let us salute the great Vedic Seers and the Brahmins

Marriage between Heaven and Earth (Post No.4301)

The Heaven Father and the Earth Mother are two of the ancient deities in the Rig Veda. They are revered as primitive pair from whom the rest of the Vedic gods sprung. They are described in the Vedas as ‘wise, great and energetic’. They ‘promote happiness and lavish gifts upon their worshippers’. Their marriage is a most poetic conception. In the Aitareya Brahmana (4-27) the marriage of Heaven and Earth is mentioned:

“The gods then brought the two, Heaven and Earth together, and when they came together they performed a wedding of the gods.”

“The Vedas set before us a world of rich and vigorous life, full of joyous fighting men”, says Huxley.

“These two worlds were once joined (subsequently) they separated. (After their separation) There fell neither rain, nor was sunshine.

This marriage of heaven and earth were found in many cultures. They have borrowed it from the Vedic Hindus. The Greeks addressed the Earth, ‘as the Mother of the gods and starry heavens’.

In the 41st fragment of Aezchylus (from the Danaides), Aphrodite is introduced as saying, “The pure heaven loves to inflict upon earth an amorous blow; and desire seizes the Earth to obtain the nuptial union. Rain falling from the moist Heaven impregnates the Earth, who brings forth for mortals the food of sheep, the sustenance of Demeter (Deva Mata= demeter). The verdure of the woods also is perfected by the showers preceding from this marriage. Of all these things I (Aphrodite) am in part of the cause”

French author Albert Reville says, that “the marriage of Heaven and Earth form the foundation of hundred mythologies”.

 

Max Muller Bluff

Max Muller and Wilkins spread wrong information that Dyaus (Sky father) and Prithvi (Mother Earth) as ‘the most ancient deities of the Aryans and they were replaced by Indra and Agni later’. But there is no proof for it. All the references to marriage of Dyaus (sky) with Prthvi (earth) come from later part of the Vedas. Greeks borrowed it from us and pronounced it as Zeus.

 

Moreover, in the early Mandalas Agni and Indra are praised more than the Dyaus and Prithvi. The early Suktas divided it into three Sky, Atmosphere and Earth. Even the parents of Earth and Heaven (Pusan) are mentioned. So his concocted story that the Earth and the Heaven are ‘the most ancient deities’ has no basis.

 

If one idiot says something 1000 idiots repeat it without verifying the fact. With very great enthusiasm, he identified himself with those ‘’marching Aryans’’ who entered India .

Dyaus in Rig Veda :

“At the festivals ( I worship) with offerings, and celebrate the praises of Heaven and Earth, the promoters of righteousness, the great, the wise, the energetic, who, having gods for their offspring, thus lavish with the gods the choicest blessings in consequence of our hymn”

“With my invocations I adore the thought of beneficent Father, and that mighty inherent power of the mother. The prolific parents have made all creatures, and through their favours (have conferred) wide immortality on their offspring”—Rig Veda 1-159-1

 

One must be careful about English translation of the Vedas. No two foreign authors agree on the meanings of the Vedic mantras. And these people add ‘Sayana said’, ‘Sayana thinks’, ‘Sayana believed ‘and then add “Aryan” as a race. Sayana never used it in that sense. He used it like the ancient Tamils used Arya in Sangam literature and Greatest Tamil poet Bharati used Arya throughout his poems; in short, no racial connotation! They meant ‘cultured’, ‘who believed God’. Even Buddha used Arya (Ajja= ayya= ayyar in Tamil) in the right sense. Those who use English translations of the foreign authors must be very careful; there are over 40 interpretations on the word Asura and origin of Asuras!!!

In the hymns there are various speculations about the origin of Dyaus and Prithvi. A Perplexed poet enquires, “Which of these was the first, and which the last?

MILTON’S VIEWS SIMILAR TO HINDU VIEWS! (Post No.4295)

Hindus believe that spirits or angels live everywhere in nature- from sea to the hill top. They are the guardians of hills, groves, streams, fountains, paths, trees, rivers, paths and cities. Sangam Age Tamils called them Anangus. They are cognisant of every human action. In considering the domination of the above, compare Milton’s lines:-

 

 

Millions of spiritual creatures walk the earth

Unseen, both when we wake and when we sleep

—Paradise Lost

 

Xxx

 

Worship of Earth by the Hindus

 

They always ask for forgiving before stepping on it or ploughing or digging a well. The worship of the earth assumes many forms. The pious Hindu does reverence to her when he rises from his bed in the morning and even the indifferently religious man worships her when he begins to plough or sow.

 

Pious Hindu recites a couplet saying, please forgive me for stepping on you, Vishnu patni namastubhyam padas sparsam kshmasvame

 

In Punjab when a cow or a buffalo  is first bought, or when she gives milk after calving, the first five streams of milk drawn from her allowed to fall on ground in honour of the goddess Mother Earth, and at every time of milking the first stream is so treated.

 

The dying man is laid on the earth at the moment of dissolution and so is the mother at the time of parturition.

 

Milton in his Paradise Lost says

………till like ripe fruit thou drop

Into thy mother’s lap- 9-273

 

 

Earth again is regarded as a remedy for disease. It is used frequently as a poultice, and an application for the cure of wounds and sores.

Earth in Wedding Ceremony of Lower Castes

 

Following incident is mentioned by Rev. Osborne Martin in his book Gods of India, year 1914

 

 

At the side of a Mission compound in North India is a tank which during half the year is dried up. The women of a neighbouring Chamar village, before any wedding, go in a procession to the dry tank to fetch from it sacred earth used to make the marriage altar and fire place on which the wedding feast is cooked.  The ground close to which the earth is taken is smeared away with vermillion, and marigold flowers are scattered here and there, while puja is offered before the soil is removed. The earth is always given by the digger to a maiden, and married women are not allowed to touch it. The maiden receives it in her sari and heads the procession on its return to the village. This rite is performed with secrecy, and usually at nightfall. This is part of ancient earth worship.

Valluvar and Milton

 

Tamil poet Tiru Valluvar says,

 

If one exercises self-restraint with knowledge and intent

He will gain distinction among the wise (Kural couplet 123)

 

If one practises self-control in respect of thought, word and deed, he will certainly come to be counted among the good people of the world. In fact as the great English poet Milton would say

 

“The command of one’s self is the greatest

Empire one can aspire to”

 

Lord Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita about the Self-Restrained:

“But the self-controlled man, moving among objects with senses under restraint, and free from attraction or aversion, attains tranquillity- Gita 2-64

 

xxx

Milton says

The Ionian Gods – of Javan’s issue held

Gods, yet confessed later than Heaven and Earth

Their boasted parents – Paradise Lost 1-508

 

Vedic Rishis also give queer notions of their gods.

 

xxx

In the Vedas there is a hymn called the Bhumi Sukta and that is the oldest hymn by a community to Mother Earth. I Have already written about it:-

My comments: Another 90 are yet to come. Even the first ninety people are enough to show, the Purushamedham was only symbolic. Even a cursory reading of the list will show that it did not happen anywhere. What they are trying to show is  that the people were all just limbs of one common body.

 

The list shoos that the Vedic Hindus were highly skilled and talk even about coronation. There was a monarchy to whom people were paying taxes. All these happened around 1000 BCE even according to the jaundice eyed foreign “scholars”!

RECITE STORY OF SUNASHEPA: YOU WILL GET GOLDEN CARPET AND SILVER CHARIOT! (Post No.4256)

RECITE STORY OF SUNASHEPA: YOU WILL GET GOLDEN CARPET AND SILVER CHARIOT! (Post No.4256)

Rig Vedic society was well advanced and highly civilized. They were an economic super power in the ancient world. Every prize is given only in big decimal numbers such as 10,000 or 100,000 and  gold is freely distributed as dakshina (fees for the priests). Half baked, white skinned “scholars” and their Marxist sycophants described the Rig Vedic Hindus as nomads, pastoral, silly, ridiculous, childish, gibberish, obscure etc. But the biggest wonder is there were 179 different jobs they were doing. One of them is Nakshatra Darshak (Star gazer= astronomer); Jyotish is different. It dealt with auspicious time and the 27+1 stars. India was the oldest civilization to teach jyotisha (astrology) as part of Veda Patasala syllabus. The Vedic youths must study six more subjects such as grammar, linguistics, astrology along with the Vedas. These 179 jobs are in Yajur Veda. White skinned scholars never give the list of 179 professions such as doctors engineers in the Vedic society but they always add one line “victim of Purushameda Yajna’ when such words occur. What is it?

 

Purushameda Yajna was sacrificing human beings and they should throw 179 different people into fire. The foreign scholars were very happy to read such passages in the Satapata Brahmana (of Yajur veda) Even Arya Samajists disowned the Brahmana literature saying that they were not part of the Vedas. They did it because of the bad atmosphere created by the Christian preachers.

The Brahmana literature was a huge mass with full of mysteries. The language is a secret language. Neither Tamil, Greek nor Latin had any literature. If anyone reads it, it wouldn’t make any sense. But the subjects it covers is very vast from astronomy to Zoology. At first the foreigners wrote Hinduism won’t survive even for 100 years with such materials. But those foreigners never said what professions existed at the Vedic period. If they give the full list everybody would know that they were highly civilized. Hindus describe even God as doctor and his advice as medicine ( In Rudram of Yajur Veda).

 

The fact of the matter is that nobody has any proof for Purushameda Yajna (Human Sacrifice). The only anecdote is Sunashepa Anecdote. The brief account is as follows:-

 

It is from the Aitareya Brahmana: King Harischandra of the race of Ikshwaku, being childless, made a vow that if he obtained a son he would sacrifice him to Varuna. A son was born who was named Rohita, but his father postponed, under various pretexts, the fulfilment of his vow (sacrificing children is in every religious book all around globe; thousands of mysterious children’s graves are in Bahrain; read my article about Mysteries of Bahrain).

 

When he was ready to perform the sacrifice, Rohita refused to be the victim and he ran into the forest. He lived there for six years. He then met a poor Brahmin Rishi Ajigerta, who had three sons. He gave his second son Sunashepa (meaning Dog’s tail)  for an exchange of 100 cows. Sunashsepa was tied to a pole. Viswamitra was passing that way and found Sunashepa and released him. He thought it was barbaric to sacrifice a human being. Ramayana and Mahabharata gave different versions where Viswamitra’s two divine mantras released Sunashepa. He was adopted as a son by Viswamitra and changed his name as Devavarta.

A series of seven hymns in the Rig Veda is attributed to Sunashepa.

 

This clearly shows that there was no such human sacrifice nor any custom before Harischandra, one of the long list of kings. Vedic literature was very huge and most of them came before Greeks started writing.

 

Foreigners thought they could use it against Hinduism; but they couldn’t because there was no sacrifice even in this episode.

 

But on the contrary Hindus, particularly Brahmins, used it in a positive way. This is the longest and most interesting story in Aitareya Brahmana. The mere telling of the story saves one from sin.

 

“If a sinful king has the story of Sunashepa told him, not the slightest trace of sin and its consequences will remain in him. He must therefore give a 1000 cows to the teller of this story and a 100 to him who makes the responses required; and to each of them the gold embroidered carpet on which he was sitting; to the priest, besides a silver decked carriage drawn by mules. Those who wish for children should also have this story told them; then they certainly will be blessed with children”.

 

Foreign “scholars” looked like idiots when this is known to the world. Golden carpet! Silver decked chariot! to the priests for telling a story!! How wealthy they must be! Before the Sumerians did the Tulabharam (weight equal to one’s body weight) of gold was given by the Hindus! Tamil King Cheran Senguttuvan gave 55 kilos of gold to a Brahmin just for advising him to do Vedic yajnas and stop killing people in the wars! It happened 2000 years ago in Tamil Nadu.

 

Now you can laugh very loudly when you read some silly things about Vedic Hindus written by Marxist idiots and white skinned fools.

I Have earlier shown in my articles that Max Muller was like a poisonous snake with a split tongue; he would blow hot and cold; he would praise the Vedas whenever he wanted to identify himself with the Aryans “who travelled from Germany to India” to establish that nobody lived in India and any foreigner could occupy it like the British.  At other times he dubbed the Vedas as childish blabbers, pastoral, ridiculous and the Aryan people were nomads.

 

This he did for two reasons. He got a collie from the East India Company to say so and the Oxford professorship has a condition that they should show to the world that Christianity is the only civilized religion. In fact, all the Sanskrit professors appointed under a chair in Oxford fall under this category. That is what they were paid for. In simple language, coolies. For money, they would do anything.

 

Here is more proof to show the true colures of Prof. Max Muller. He was a poisonous snake and along with Bishop Caldwell and other foreigners they coined a new term ‘Aryan race’. Neither the Tamil Sangam literature nor the Vedas has that racial connotation for ‘Arya’.

Subrahmanya Bharati, the greatest Tamil poet of modern times used the word ARYA in scores of places in his poems with the correct meaning: civilized, cultured, who recites Mantras in Sanskrit at the foot hills of the Himalayas. Bharati deliberately used the word ARYAN and deliberately avoided the word Dravidian in his poems. Probably to give a slap on the faces of Caldwells and Max Mullers and such cunning dirty fellows.

 

Max Muller describes the conclusion arrived at by intelligent Indians: “The friends of Rammohan Roy, honest and fearless as they have always proved themselves to be, sent some young scholars to Benares to study the Vedas and to report on their contents. As soon as their report was received, Debendranath Tagore, the Head of the Brahma Samaj, said at once that, venerable as the Vedas might be as relics of a former age, they contained so much that was CHILDISH, ERRONEOUS and impossible as to make their descent from a divine source utterly untenable” (another group of collies).

(Biographical essays pp 163, 169)

 

Prof. Max Muller has spent many years, editing the Rig Veda, with commentary of Sayana (MM must be the biggest fraud in the field. He did not translate Sayana’s. Because Sayana never said that there was a race called Aryan and they came from Europe).

 

Max Muller says the following in his “Preface to the Sacred Books of the east”:-

“Scholars also who have devoted their life either to the editing of the original texts or to the careful interpretation of some of the sacred books, are more inclined, after they have disinterred from a HEAP OF RUBBISH some solitary fragments of pure gold, to exhibit these treasures only than to display all the REFUSE from which they have to extract them. I do not blame them for this, perhaps I should feel that I was open to the same blame myself, for it is but natural that the scholars in their joy at finding ONE or TWO fragrant fruits or flowers should gladly forget the BRAMBLES and THORNS that had to be thrown aside in the course of their search”.

In his Lecture on the Vedas he expresses the following opinion of the hymns:-

“ The historical importance of the Veda can hardly be exaggerated but its intrinsic merit, and particularly the beauty or elevation of its sentiments, have by many been rated far too high. LARGE NUMBER OF THE VEDIC HYMNS ARECHILDISH IN THE EXTREME: TEDIOUS, LOW, COMMON-PLACE. The gods are constantly invoked to protect their worshippers to grant them food, large flocks, large families and a long life; for all which benefits they are to be rewarded by the praises and sacrifices offered day after day, or certain seasons of the year. But hidden in this RUBBISH there are precious stones.

 

“ I remind you again that the Veda contains a great deal of what is CHILDISH and FOOLISH, though very little of what is bad and objectionable. Some of its poets ascribe to the gods sentiments and passions unworthy of the deity such as anger, revenge, delight in material sacrifices; they likewise represent human nature on a low level of SELFISHNESS and WORDLINESS. Many hymns are utterly UNMEANING and INSIPID and we must search patiently before we meet, here and there, with sentiments that come from

the depth of the soul, and with prayers in which we could join ourselves.”

 

(Sayana never expressed such an opinion. Tamil Sangam literature praised the Vedas sky high. For two thousand years Tamil devotional poets praised them. Tamils translated he word Veda as ‘secret’. because they knew literal meaning should not be looked at.)

Western fellows never talk about other or their religious books. If Vedas are rubbish there more rubbish in their very short books!

 

Not even Buddha, not even Mahavira criticised the Vedas.  They praised Indra. They criticised only doing Yagas without understanding the meaning or purpose. Oldest Tamil book  Tolkappiam said that INDRA, VARUNA, VISHNU and DURGA are Tamil gods

 

When all other old religions died and their gods gone into museums, Hinduism is still a vibrant religion and Vedic Gods are worshipped every day. How and Why?

 

If there is so much RUBBISH in the Vedas, why did MM spend 60 years in Vedic studies and publish 51 Volumes of Sacred Books of the East? Was he a fraud or a faithful collie and did all these things for money to belittle Hinduism? Because of his Aryan Race theory, Hitler picked up Arya and Swastika and killed millions. Because of this America killed one million innocent Buddhists and Shintoism followers by throwing atom bombs on their heads. They never nuked a Jew or a Muslim or a Christian.

Caldwell says: “If any person reads the hymns of the Vedas for the first time, he will be struck with surprise at the utterly WORLDLY, UNETHICAL, UNSPIRITUAL tone by which they are generally pervaded.”

MM did another fraud by praising Dyaus Pita and comparing him with European gods and dubbing it as he oldest God. he never proved it. He never proved that those hymns in the Rig Vedas as the oldest portions. No scholar in the world proved it. Most of the things said by one idiot is repeated by other idiots. Because all of them belong to the same bandwagon.

Readers can pass a judgement on MM and his bed mates.

Importance of Cow in Sanskrit Literature! (Post No.4053)

The cow occupies a unique position in Hinduism. Kalidasa’s Raghuvamsa gives a graphic account of care and respect shown to a cow by the emperor Dilipa.

Hindus’ greatest contribution to the world civilization is cow and its products. When the world was drinking goat’s milk and camel’s milk and even donkey’s milk they discovered that the cow’s milk is the best in the world and it is as good as mother’s milk. No ancient literature praises or values cow’s milk as Hindu literature. From Rig Veda to Sangam Tamil literature we find innumerable references in praise of the cow.

 

There are very interesting words in Sanskrit from the cow:-

Vaatslayam

Love and affection shown towards calf by its mother cow. Oft quoted in the Vedas

Go loka

The heaven of Krishna is Go loka (cow’s world)

Duhitri

A daughter is called milk maid (duhitri)

Gotra

clan; group

Gopis

Women with divine love towards Krishna

Madhuparka

All the saints are honoured with Milk and Honey. Hospitality is a unique Hindu concept. Rig Veda and Tamil Sangam book Purananuru have a lot of Danastutis, in praise of donation and hospitality. (English word donation comes from Sanskrit Dhaana).

Hosipitality is the rule of life among the Hindus. Tamil Veda Tirukkural has a chapter on it. Rig Veda praises it. Mahabharata has several stories in praise of hospitality. Panchatantra is full of quotations on hospitality. Guests were received with great ceremonies in ancient India. They must be given water to wash their feet and a seat to take rest. If they are unknown people, pial of the house was given to them to take rest and provided with full meals.

 

Hindus not only domesticated the cows and oxen, they worshipped them as gods and goddesses. Kamadhenu is the wish fulfilling cow. The picture and statues of Kamadhenu are in Hindu houses and temples.

Go puja and Gaja Puja (cow and elephant worship) are done in all the temples and religious Mutts. This has been going on for several thousand years without stopping. No animal in the world is worshipped continuously like this.

A word ‘Gohna’ is used for the guests. Foreigners translated it literally as Cow killer. They thought a cow was killed by the seer to feed another seer. The real meaning is that a cow’s products such as milk, butter, ghee, curd/yogurt, cow dung Go mutra (cow’s urine)– all are used in the service of the guests. Cow dung will be sprinkled with water in front of the house. Cow dung will be smeared in the oven to clean it. Cow’s urine is used to purify a place and a person.

Story of Cow’s creation

Satapata Brahmana (2-2-4-1) gives the story of Cow’s creation.

“Prajapati alone existed. He generated Agni (fire) from his mouth.

When they had sung praises, they went towards east saying, ‘We will go back thither! The gods came upon a cow which had sprung into existence. Looking up at them, she uttered the sound ‘hin’. The gods perceived that this was the ‘hin’ of the Saman (melodious sacrificial chant of Sama Veda); for heretofore their song was without ‘hin’, but after that it was the real Saman. (musical chant of Rig Vedic mantras; Hindus discovered the musical notes sa, ri, ga , ma pa, da ni – seven notes)

 

And as this same sound, ‘hin’ of the Saman, was in the cow, therefore the latter affords the means of subsistence; and so does he afford the means of subsistence whosoever thus knows the ‘hin’ of the Saman in the cow”.

 

“They said, ‘Auspicious indeed, is what we have produced here, who have produced the cow; for truly she is the sacrifice, and without her no sacrifice is performed; she is also the food. This word ‘go’ (Sanskrit word for cow; English word cow came from Sanskrit Go) then, is a name of those cows, and so it is of the sacrifice; let him therefore repeat it, saying , good, excellent! and verily, whosoever, , knowing this, repeats it, as it were saying good, excellent! with him those cows multiply, and the sacrifice will incline to him”.

Foreigners couldn’t understand this mantra. They took the word sacrifice and wrote that cow was sacrificed in the fire. But Hindus knew the correct  meaning: without cow’s products they cant run their life or do religious performance; Hindus use milk in birth and funeral ceremonies. Without Go mutra (cow’s urine), Ghee and milk no ceremony is done. They were great scientists to find that that Cow’s urine and Cow’s poo (cow dung) have got great curative and anti- bacterial properties.

Another story about cow is as follows:

Cow came from Prajapati’s Breath

Satapata Brahmana says ((7-5-2-6)

“Prajapati was alone at first. He desired, May I create food, may I be reproduced!. He fashioned animals from his vital airs, a man from his soul (mind), a horse from his eye, a cow from his breath, a sheep from his ear and a goat from his voice”.

 

Foreigners couldn’t understand the meaning of such mantras. Whenever and wherever they wanted they interpreted some words according to their whims and fancies; and the fact is no two foreigners agreed on the meaning, because they don’t know the real meaning. We can see this tend throughout the Vedic translations done by 20 to 25 authors. For them it was jigsaw puzzle game.

 

In the above mantras if they see a direction ‘North’, they will write “Look, they have come from North pole”. Here in the mantra the direction mentioned is east. Poor foreigners couldn’t say that Aryans came from the east. So they will keep quiet!

Who is a Dasyu? Kalidasa and Rig Veda explain! (Post No.3982)

Dasyu means a thief; but foreign ‘thieves’ who translated the Hindu Vedas wrote that Dasyu mean an aborigine- a deliberate distortion. In every community, there are thieves and we can find them even in all the scriptures. We have poems about robbers and thieves in Sangam Tamil literature. Some words gain wrong meaning in course of time. We have several caste names (Pariahs and Kallars) in Tamil literature which have earned wrong connotation in course of time. But nobody bothered about them.

English newspapers around the world use the Tamil word ‘PARIAH’ everyday with wrong connotation, which originally meant a drummer or an announcer. Countries and leaders are described as International Pariah in English newspapers and TV stations every day. The new meaning the English dictionaries give is AN UNTOUCHABLE!

 

Tamils were the only race in the world who fought among themselves for at least 1500 years according to Tamil literature and Tamil inscriptions. But nobody divided them on racial lines. The Chera, Choza, Pandya kings fought with each other for 1500 years continuously, killed one another, detained their women and made ropes out of their hair to pull their Victorious Chariots. The Tamil poets praised the kings as great heroes. The poets also say that they burnt the palaces of other Tamil kings and razed it to ground and ploughed it with donkeys just to insult the defeated Tamil king. The Sangam Tamil poets sang about rivers of blood as well. Even though the Tamil kings claimed different origins the foreigners never attributed any race into it.

 

But foreigners who wanted to divide the Hindus, deliberately divided the Hindu community into two : Aryan and Dravidian which are not found in Tamil or Sanskrit literature. Though we have the word Aryan in Sangam Tamil literature  and Arya in the Rig Veda, the meaning is ‘cultured’, ‘civilized’ or ‘saints in the Himalayas’. There is no racial division or connotation. But from the days of Max Mullers and Caldwells, they coloured the word with racial paint.

Dasyu in Kalidasa

In the Sakuntala drama, Sarngarava in his anger accused the king Dusyanta as a thief. It is because the king married Sakuntala secretly and abandoned her. When she was sent back to the king, the simile Kalidasa used was that sending the stolen property to a thief himself! The word Kalidasa used is DASYU for thief (Act 5-21)

 

Dasyu in Rigveda

In the Vedic Index, Keith and Macdonell say,

“Dasyu, a word of somewhat of doubtful origin, is in many passages of the Rig Veda, clearly applied to superhuman enemies. On the other hand, there are several passages in which human foes, probably the aborigines, are thus designated.

Dasyus are described as

God Hating (a-devayu) 8-70-11

Not sacrificing (a-yajvan) 4-16-9

Devoid of rites ( a karman); RV 10-22-8

Lawless (a vrata)

Addicted to strange vows (anya vrata) 8-70-11

Reviling the Gods (deva piyuu) AV 12-1-37

It is impossible in all cases to be certain that people are meant.

No clans of dasyus are mentioned;

Indra is Dasyu-hatya (killer of dasyus); but never mentioned as Dasa hatya. This means Indra was against criminals, thieves, robbers etc but not against people.

It is like later inscriptions describing Hindu kings as ‘parantapa’ scorcher of the enemies (Bhagavd Gita)

 

In one passage of the Rig Veda they were described as A-nas(RV 5-29-10); some wrongly translated this as nose less and attributed to Dravidians; Dravidians have big noses! As far as we know only the Japanese have small noses; some foreigners translated it as faceless, broken nose.

When the Rig Veda described them in one place as ‘Mrdhra vac’, they translated it as ‘stammering, unintelligible speech!’

Actually Sangam Tamil literature describe the Yavanas (Romans, Greeks and Arabs) as people of harsh speech; Tamil literature describe the shepherds as Kallaa Idaiyar ( rude, uneducated, uncultured etc). No one attributed any race or aborigine element into it.

 

Every scripture or every literature has such words to describe the enemies from their own clan or from the opposite sides.

 

In Iran there is a province with the name Dasyu!. What they meant was it was an enemy country. We can call Pakistan and China as Dasyus today. England which fought 1000 year war with France would have called them Dasyu!.

When Cumuri, Sambara and Susna fought Indra they were described as Dasyu, meaning ‘a brutal enemy’.

 

In the Aitareya Brahmana it meant uncivilized people.

In short Dasyu meant hostile, uneducated, uncultured thieves and robbers. These types of people are found in every scripture and  every ancient book. But only in Hindu scriptures they were coloured by foreigners as aborigines or Dravidians. A deliberate distortion with an ulterior motive. Marxists and Dravidian politicians spread the distorted version to laymen for their own political gains.

It is Hindus’ primary duty to translate the Vedas  properly and rewrite Indian History.
