Feng Shui – True or False? If it is True, is there a Proof?

by S. Nagarajan

 

Feng means Wind and Shui means water in Chinese language. It is an ancient Chinese art, at least 5000 years old.


There are five elements. Everything is energy. If you are able to channelise the positive energy understanding the five elements, you will be successful in all spheres.

 

 

How to channelise the energy and what is the proof that Feng Shui works?

We may refer at least one real story for this.

Hans Snook is famous for his slogan, ‘The future is bright, The future is Orange’.  With this he developed his company and sold it for a huge amount of 50 million pounds.

 

 

Snook was born in England. He dropped out of university and worked in the hotel business in Canada.

Then he went to Hong Kong and worked in a telecoms company. In 1994, he came back to London and launched a mobile phone company.

 

He was all success due to his belief in Feng Shui. Even though he did not have a great belief in that, he consulted a Feng Shui master. The master suggested certain alterations in his office and assured him that within twelve months the business would become very successful.

 

And that is what happened. His business incredibly brought a lot of money.

Not only Hans Snook, almost all businessmen around the world who want an all-round success and prosperity adopt Feng Shui principles. The Proof?

You may see the water spring in front of the big malls and corporate office buildings.

 

 

One interesting example is Andrew Thrasyvoulou. He is an architect himself and owner of a hotel group, Myhotel Company.

When he took over a London building he had to redesign and modify it since the existing one was not according to the principles of Feng Shui.

He has based the layout on the principles of this Chinese art. Major changes in the 76 room hotel were made.

The staircase facing the entrance was moved in order to make the positive flow of energy. The bar’s hard edges were removed and were replaced with round corners.

 

A Fish Tank was placed in front of Cash register locks to bring luck and prosperity.

Thus the entire hotel was modified and he made enormous money.

The latest fashion is to engage a Feng Shui master along with the architect.

The Hindu Scriptures specify Vastu Sastra which is more than Feng Shui.

 

 

All these special techniques are simply aligning the forces which are invisible. Those who respect and adopt them are fortunate and those who are ignorant of the facts are deprived of the benefits.

Hence we must understand the basic principles and make our life a successful one following these rules.

I would like to recommend to read my earlier article titled, ‘Get Feng Shui – Vastu Combined Benefits’.

Hindus Migrate to Europe 8000 Years Ago! (Post No.3708)

Nicholas Kazanas, a scholar from Athens has given amazing details about Hindus in his latest book “VEDIC AND INDO EUROPEAN STUDIES”. It is written for scholars with lot of linguistic studies and a layman can’t follow it easily. But he himself summarised beautifully well in the introduction. I will give only interesting points from the intro and the contents of the book.

 

Migration

AIT (Aryan Invasion/Immigration Theory) is wrong. On the contrary Hindus went into Europe 8000 years ago. He quoted the following:

Genetics also has in the 2000 decade established beyond any doubt the fact that genes flowed into Europe from N W India (Gujarat, Rajsathan, Sindh); these are the R1a 1a and the M458 and they travelled north westward before 8000 years ago (see underhill 2010)

Emeneau’s Ignorance

M B Emeneau wrote in 1954 : “At some time in the second millennium BC a band or bands of an Indo European language, later to be called Sanskrit, entered India over the North West passes. This is our linguistic doctrine which has been held now for more than a century and a half. There seems to be no reason to distrust the arguments for it, in spite of the traditional Hindu ignorance of any such invasion”.

Nicholas, in his book says: “However it is Emeneau himself who suffers from ignorance, not the Hindu tradition. For only 12 years later, in 1966, an article by the eminent archealogist George Dale in the Scientific American showed beyond any doubt that there has been no invasion, no bloodshed, no conquest, no violence. Note, too, that Emeneau talks of a doctrine and arguments and not of data, evidence and facts. Now where as historians like A L Basham accepted it readily (1975), it took Western and many Indian Sanskritists to accept this fact and change the theory into one of peaceful immigration.

 

Date of Rig Veda 3500 BCE!

All modern texts on Sanskrit and ancient Indian literature refer to the chronological scheme set out by Max Muller in his History of Sanskrit Literature (1859). What they don’t say is how he arrived at this’

 

This scheme was based on a ghost story in Katha sarit sagara (composed in 1100 CE) which mentions a certain Katyayana. This person was identified by Muller with the sutra writer Kaatyaayana, placed in the third century BCE. Thus working from that date as his basis, he set up the following chronological scheme:

Chandas (RV) – 1200-1000 BCE

Mantras (Atharva, Yajus) – 1000-800 BCE

Brahmanas, Upanishads – 800-600 BCE

Sutras etc. – down to 200 BCE

 

This chronology came into criticism at that time ( by Goldstrucker, Whitney, Winternitz and others) and even Muller admitted that nobody could determine the dates of the Rig Vedic hymns which could be from 1500, 2000 or even 5000 BCE. But his earlier scheme stuck and is being taught today in all Western Universities and most Indian ones.

However, all archaeologists today, experts in the area of Saptasindhu (Allchin, Kenoyer, Poschel, Shaffer and many others), emphasize the unbroken continuity of the native culture from c.7000 to 600 BCE, when the Persians began to invade the region.

The Indo- Aryans are indigenous to Seven River region (Sapta Sindhu) what is today North West Pakistan and North West India, since there is no evidence for any intrusion into that area before 600 BCE. The Rig Veda was complete but for minor passages by 3100 BCE when the Harappan culture begins to arise

 

Consequently, I take it that Rig Veda was composed in the 4th millennium BCE at least, the Brahmanas and the Upanishads early in the 3rd and some of the Sutra texts 2500 BCE.

 

Egypt, Babylonia learnt Maths from India!

 

Of great significance are two articles by American historian of science A.Seidenberg wherein he argues that Egyptian, Babylonian and Greek mathematics derive from the Indic Sulbasutras of Apastamba and Baudhayana or a work like that, dated c 2000 BC as lower limit, thus furnishing totally independent evidence; in these he took account of the work of Neugebauer, Cantor et all. Seidenberg wrote of this original work: its mathematics was very much like what we see in the Sulabasutras. In the first place, it was associated with the ritual. Second, there was no dichotomy between number and magnitude. In geometry, it knew the Theorem of Pythagoras and how to convert a rectangle into a square. It knew the isosceles trapezoid and how to compute its area.

Who has written the first Time Travel Story? Any modern Sci-Fi – Scientific Fiction – writer? No.

It is the great sage Veda Vyasa who has written 18 great Hindu Puranas had written the first Time Travel Story.

Vyasa has been glorified as the great one who has Giant Brain. There is nothing in the world which he has not touched; enumerated! In Devi Bhagavatham, we come across the story of Revata.

 

The great king by name Ravata was the ruler of Kusasthali. He was the son of King Anartta and grandson of emperor Saryati. He had hundred sons and one daughter by name Revathi.

 

When the time for Revathi’s marriage came, he was not able to find out a suitable bridegroom for his daughter. So he thought of meeting the creator Brahma who created Revathi. Revathi also accompanied his father to the Brahmaloka, the world of Brahama.

 

When they enter into Brahams’s place there was some Yaga going on. Revata respectfully worshipped Brahma. On seeing him, Brahma just signed to wait. The Yaga was completed and Brahma asked Revata about the purpose of his visit.

Revata explained that he had come to take his advice in finding out a suitable bridegroom.

 

Braham told him, “Oh! The time in Brahma Loka and the time in the earth are different. Even though you think that you have waited here for a few minutes, thousands of years have been passed in the earth. See the persons there in the earth. They are all comparatively very much shorter because one Yuga has been completed, whereas beautiful Revathi is very much taller than the earthly men. But don’t worry. You may choose Balabadrarama as your son-in-law. He will do the needful.”

On hearing this Revata was very happy and he came back to earth along with Revathi and met Balabadrarama. Balabadrarama took his spade and with that he pressed Revathi’s head. Immediately Revathi was shortened and attained a suitable normal height as that of other earthly women.The marriage was successfully performed.

 

Thus Veda Vyasa very beautifully narrates the time dilation theory, that is, the difference in time when you travel in the space to a greater distance.

 

Now let us compare this with the data provided in “Meyers Handbook on Space’.

 

Meyers table gives you extents of Time dilation between the spaceship rocket crew hon an intersteller flight and the inhabitants at the rocket launching station in the earth.

Following table gives the years for Rocket Crew and equivalent years of launch station inhabitants, in this case, humanbeings in our earth.

 

Years of Rocket Crew                           Years of Launch Site at Earth

1                                                1

2                                                2.1

5                                                 6.5

10                                                24

20                                               270

30                                             3100

40                                           36000

50                                        4,20,000

 

4,20,000 years is approximately equivalent to one Kali Yuga’s duration. This is what Brahma told Revata that one Yuga has been passed.

With a fantastic story Vyasa has narrated the Time Dilation theory in a beautiful manner.

 

Great scientific theories are all hidden in Hindu Puranas. With the advancement of science we come to know the facts hidden in the epics and become dumbfounded.

PANDU- TIGER AMONG MEN! (Post No.3697)

Pandu was the father of Pancha (five) Pandavas in the Mahabharata. He was born to Ambalika and Vyasa. There is a big scientific truth in the birth story of Pandu. If any woman has sex with a man in disgust or hatred, the child born may be handicapped or sick or a baby with a rare syndrome.

 

Pandu’s older brother was Dhritarashtra who was born blind. Because of brother’s blindness Pandu took over the reins of the Kingdom. He was ruling from Hastinapura. He married Kunti, who chose him as her husband in a Swayamvara ( a princess choses her own husband in an open competition). Later he married Madri from Madra Kingdom. In the olden days, a king could marry as many princesses as possible from neighbouring kingdoms to strengthen the country and save it from invasions.

 

Kunti, taught Madri the mantra (magic spell) she learnt from Durvasa, a seer, to get children. Through that mantra she invoked the Vedic twins Aswini kumaras and got twins Nakula and Sahadeva. Yudhisthira, Bhima and Arjuna with these twins were called Pancha/Five Pandavas.

Science behind their births!

Vyasa was asked to help Amba and Ambika in getting children, since both had no issues. They couldn’t have children with their husband Vichitraveerya. This was an ancient custom allowed to continue the lineage. So, Vyasa agreed to produce children, but neither he was  a handsome man nor dresses properly. He was more involved in the Vedic studies. When Ambika looked at him she hated him and shut her eyes while she had conjugal bliss with him. Because of her mental state she gave birth to a born blind, Dhritarshtra. Ambalika also was not happy, but had sex with him with a feeling of disgust and the child born to her was pale, Pandu.

 

So, if someone doesn’t feel comfortable or happy while having sex, that will affect the children born to them physically or mentally. Western country statistics also show that children brought up in an atmosphere of violence, squalor, bad habits such as drink and drugs become anti-social elements.

 

How Pandu died?

Hunting and gambling were two big vices of Hindu kings. When Pandu went for a hunt in the forest he mistook a rishi and his wife as deer and shot and killed them. At that time they were having sex. Since Rishis (seers) of ancient India wore deer skin, they were easily mistaken. When the seer (Kindama) died, he cursed Pandu that he would also die when he has sex with his wife.

 

Pandu felt very sad and went to the forest to practice yoga and penance. Both his wives Kunti and Madri accompanied them. As fate, would have it, one day Pandu felt very happy and decided to enjoy conjugal pleasure. He died immediately and Madri also died with him in the funeral pyre, feeling that it was her fault to allow him to come closer to her despite the seer’s curse.

Kunti took care of her children.

Tiger among Men

Pandu did not get much coverage as others, outside the epic. But Mahabharata praised him very much. He had great qualities and he was used as similes in many passages Let us look at a few couplets about Pandu from the epic:-

 

“This tiger among men comes again, the knower of virtue, the one who protects us in accordance with what is right, as his own relatives”

ayam sa purusa Vyaagrah punar aayaati dharmavit

yo nah svaan iva daayaadaan dharmatah pariraksati ( 1-199-17)

 

“Pandu, while practising penance in the forest behaved like a brother to some, like a friend to others; the sages, however, protected him like their own son”

 

kesaam cid abhavad bhraataa

kesaam cid abhavad sakhaa

rsayas tv apare cai ‘nam

putravat paryapaalayan 1-113-3

 

Pandu, though a Kshatriya (king), he looked like an enlightened sage in the forest: brahma rsi sadrsah paandur – 1-111-4

 

He is one of the unsung heroes of Mahabharata.

by S. Nagarajan

How could an object be located in space? While the first three dimensions are used to specify its location in the space, the fourth dimension time, locates its position in time.

 

Space and time are inseparable. Time could not be easily explained. For our convenience sake we are saying present tense, past tense and future tense.

 

The events that had happened is past. The events which we are experiencing now is present and what is to come is future.

 

But these tenses are related. Swami Vivekananda once explained that all the three tenses are mingled together if you see them from an infinite height. You can take whatever tense you want at that level and see what is happening at that moment.

 

How could this be explained? Very Easy. Imagine one person is travelling in a train. In the compartment, he is able to see through the window up to a distance. The person sitting opposite to him will be able to see the other side through the window up to a distance. The person who is sitting in the compartment next to the engine could see a little more. Suppose if a person travels sitting on the roof of the train he could see everything in front, back, right and left.

 

Now could anyone say who is exactly in the present tense? Before you say, this moment starts, it ends within a second. The present becomes past in a second and the future becomes the present in that second. So, who is living exactly in the present? And whose vision is the ‘present’ vision among the travelers, the person whom we referred first or the person opposite to him or the one who is in the compartment next to engine or the person who is sitting on the roof top of the train?

 

For the person who is on the roof top other person’s past is also present. And other person’s future also present. At a higher level all the tenses are mingled.

All are in present tense only but their vision is full or partial depending upon the obstructions or limits.

 

So our views regarding present tense is only relative! Actually we are all in present tense only.

The train is moving and hence all the persons are in ‘Continuous Present”.

This is exactly the Hindu religion says about time. We are ever in Continuous Present.

 

Time is ever flowing. Nobody could explain it. Nobody could escape from it also.

Space and time are inseparable. Living in present is desirable. For this, continuous effort is required. Because all are either fuming about the past or hoping about the future.

 

The Zen Buddhism and Hinduism emphasize to live in present. If you are able to live in the present then nothing could stop your success.

This is one aspect of Time. We will explore further in our future article.

In my previous article titled ‘The Secret of Sri Yantra, I have given the basic points about the complicated Divine Geometry of Sri Yantra.

In this article we will see the Yantra as per famous scientist Alexy Pavlovich Kulaichev’s perspective views.

 

 

He made a thorough research on Sri Yantra in 1987 and published his paper in Russian language. This was endorsed duly by a referee as per customary practice. The paper attracted worldwide response and caused a most lively interest from readers and received more than a hundred responses. Today his paper is considered to be one of the best scientific paper on the complicated Divine Geometry.

 

He has drawn Sri Chakra as per the stipulated rules and three more similar yantras were also drawn for comparing with the original.

 

Volunteers were asked to fix their attention for one minute at chosen parts of the test pictures. There were three test pictures along with the real one. 1) A coloured picture of Sri Yantra 2) A coloured drawing produced by a random intermixing of the Sri Yantra elements, that is to say, a  pseudoyantra 3) A black and white picture with concentric drawn according to the levels of the Sri Yantra circles. 4) A set of black rays on white background intersected in the common centre.

 

The persons selected for these experiments had no practice in relaxation and meditation techniques. They were not informed about either the aim of the experiments or the significance of the experiments.

The results were astonishing. The reaction to the original Sri Chakra was unique. Those who concentrated that felt tranquil effect. During gazing the alpha-rhythm appeared in the EEG more quickly as compared to while gazing at the other pictures. It was observed that the Yantra effectively changes the basic psychophysiological state of the person and ensures relaxation and peacefulness. While the original one even cures the psychological defects the pseudo yantras could not effect the same cure.

 

After publishing the first paper, one more paper on its mathematical properties was also published after twelve years by Kulaichev.

 

A very high complicated explanation with formulas put forth in that paper could be understood by only   mathematical experts.

The base angle of Sri Yantra is 51.5032 degrees and the base angle of Great Pyramid of Gizeh in Egypt is also 51.5032.  Very many such never ending wonders can be enumerated.

 

There are negative energies around us. These are stumbling blocks to achieve greater success, peach, health, wealth. Once the Sri Yantra is worshiped with concentration, all the negative energies are driven away automatically ensuring peace, health, wealth etc.

 

This secret was found out by the ancient Hindu Sages and they advised the worship of Sri Yantra. Now modern day scientists are also agreeing with the views of the sages after conducting their scientific experiments.

Those who have a high mathematical background and are interested in knowing more about the secrets could read the original paper of Alexey Kulaichev.

  1. Nagarajan

India is very famous for its temples. Thousands and thousands of temples were built and maintained from time immemorial. The sculptures and the building techniques will speak itself the glory of the great tradition.

Madurai is situated at 462 kilometers south of Chennai (Madras as it was known in earlier times). The famous Meenakshi Amman Temple is located in the centre of the city. Inside the temple there are famous halls like Marriage Hall, Thousand Pillar Hall etc.

The Thousand Pillar Hall is very famous for its beautiful construction.

The hall, even though called as thousand pillar hall, it has only 985 pillars. The pillars are erected in such a way as to fall in line from any angle we view. .

In the year 1983, an expert team from audiology department went in to the hall and carried out an extensive study. They have used latest scientific gadgets and found that there is absolutely no echo in any part of the temple even with all the crowd around the sound level seldom exceed 80 dB (decibel)

Naturally the noise level in a quiet surrounding will be 40 dB, in a crowded street about 80-85 dB and at the airport when a jet aircraft takes off, it will be about 100 dB.

According to the team headed by Dr Kameswaran, an ENT specialist, there appears to be a built in mechanism in the precincts of Madurai temple for containing the echo. The total noise does not exceed a specific level which would make it unpleasant to the visitors.

The temple is an acoustic marvel, observed the experts. Near the road there is one Ashta Shakti Hall. There the noise level is only 40 dB.

 

The team members said that with this ambient noise it is possible for a person to contemplate and meditate the Divinity.

Roughly about 5000 to 6000 people visit the temple daily. And the sound level recorded during the peak hours is of the order of 70 dB to 80 dB.

It implies that the artisans were aware of the basic principles of acoustics. The huge icons on the unpolished pillars, the distribution of vents, the allocation of open space all around, are all mechanisms to contain the noise level. The arrangements are so made that is not crude but there is an artistic planning combining utility with beauty. This arrangement strangely contrasts with arrangement made in certain modern buildings where instruments for breaking noise and absorbing sound are hung from the roof in a very clumsy and unartistic manner.

This hall is a classic example of perfect sound engineering technique. The average height of each pillar is about 12 feet. The pillars depicts four kinds of motifs, one consisting of moulded squares, the other with rampant dragon, the third with a figure of a deity and the fourth that of a donor or his family. The unpolished pillars of exactly of same size and shape are placed at mathematically accurate positions. These aspects have made the hall echo resistant.

In addition, the pillars are so peculiarly arranges that anyone sitting at a specific spot could view a central figure without any obstruction in any position. At any position inside the hall, in consequence to the arrangement of the pillars, there open up around us 16 colonnades of varying width and such length of each side that the perspective afforded by them is simply marvelous.

The expert team rightly described the thousand pillar hall as an acoustic marvel.

Thousands of such intricate wonders are hidden in these Indian temples.

Warning! When you are reading this article, your Xerox may also be reading this article in Parallel Universe. It is not a joke. The great scientist Max Tegmark exactly starts his article in Scientific

 
American May 2003 issue with these words only.

“Is there a copy of you reading this article? A person who is not you but who lives on a planet called Earth with misty mountains, fertile fields and sprawling cities, in a Solar system with eight other planets? The life of this person has been identical to yours in every respect” – These are his exact words.

 

Is there a Parallel Universe? The theory ‘Nothing Dies’ has been proposed long back.

 

Take the Hindu Scriptures. Krishna studied as per the age old system staying in his Guru Sandeepany’s hut along with other students. Once the stipulated period was over, the parting day arrived. Krishna wanted to offer ‘Guru Dakshina’ meaning offerings to the Master. But the great saint told him no such thing is required. But the saint’s wife who stood by the side of him was looking sad. Krishna asked the reason. She told Him that her only son was met with untimely death at the age of five and whether Krishna could bring him back. Krishna was pleased very much. He had an opportunity to pay his debt back to the great guru. He immediately went out and after some time brought back the saint’s son. The child was exactly the same boy when died.

 

 

Sandeepany and his wife praised Krishna for achieving this impossible task.

Now let us think for a moment, Lord Krishna’s extraordinary feat. How could He bring a dead boy? Where was the boy with flesh and blood? The answer which was not possible hitherto  is possible now with ‘Parallel Universe’ theory.

 

Yes, He went to a parallel Universe and brought the identical person from there.

Same explanation could be given when Saint Gnanasambandar brought back the young girl named Poombavai in Mylapore, Chennai India. When asked by him, where was Poombavai, the girl’s father wept and told him that she was dead. Gnanasamandar immediately brought and spread the remainings of the girl and sung ten verses. On completing the last verse, Poombavai came alive. Everybody was wonderstruck. They danced with immense joy.

 

 

Where was the dead Poombavai all along and how was she brought back?

The answer lies in the new scientific finding – Parallel universe!

The ten verses are inscribed in the outer wall of the Kapaleeswarar Temple in Mylapore, Chennai, India. Even today all the devotees are reciting these ten verses with great devotion.

 

 

This new theory explains the impossible happenings recorded in the Hindu history.

What is parallel universe and who first proposed this theory? Hugh Everett was the first scientist who proposed this theory of multiple universe.

In the next article we may study this great theory in detail!

Santhanam Nagarajan

 

 

 

Yantra can be simply explained as a divine geometry. There are many yantras. The most powerful yantra is called as Sri Yantra. It is also called as Sri Chakra.

This has been worshipped in a specified manner from time immemorial in India. This is a symbol of both the Universe and its cause.

Sir John Woodroffe (1865-1936) in his book, Shakti and Shakta has explained it in detail thus:

It is composed of two sets of Triangles. One set is composed of four male or Shiva triangles called Shrikanthas denoting four aspects of evolved or limited Consciousness-Power, and the five female or Shakti trainagles denote the five vital functions, the five senses of knowledge, the five senses of action, and the five subtle and the five gross forms of matter.

These two sets of triangles are superimposed to show the union of Shiva and Shakti. As so united they make the figure within the eight lotus petals in the full Yantra. Outside these eight lotuses there are sixteen other lotuses. There are some more lines which is called as Bhupura. It serves as a fence.

The Sri Yantra should not be hanged on a wall. It must be kept flat or horizontal to the ground and must be worshipped daily with due offerings. It should not be drawn on ground, wall, or plank.

Even there is a prescribed way to draw the Yantra to the correct proportion.

Sri Chakra drawn on a plate, foil or disc of gold, silver, copper or any other material can be worn on person as talisman.

Sri Chakra can be worshipped by one and all irrespective of religion, caste or creed, sex or age, young or old, high or low, the learned or ignorant and the rich or poor.

The secret of Sri Yantra worship is that It will bestow wealth, health and above all salvation.

We may find Srichakra in all states of India, namely Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Kerala, Karnataka, Madya Pradesh, Pondicherry, Tamilnadu, Uttar Pradesh etc.

 

Swami Pranavananda has visited almost all the places where Sri Yantra has been installed. He has given details of one hundred and eighty places in detail in his fantastic book titled ‘A Treatise on Sricakra’

It is interesting to note that Sankara the great master of advaita visited Kashmir and built a temple there on a hillock. He has installed one Srichakra also there after which the capital of Kashmir was named Srinagara another name of Srichakra.

Knowing the full details of all the one hundred and eighty places where these capsules of cosmic energy were installed will inspire each and every one.

Whoever interested in Sri Yantra should also read the findings of the scientist Alexi Kulaichev.

In my next article I will explain the scientific findings as well as the Scriptures version

Hindus invented the Camouflage technique and taught the world. As keen observers of animals, they watched them  and used their camouflage wherever necessary. Colour changing chameleon and crocodile are part of their literature and proverbs.

Camouflage means colours or structures that allow an animal or structures to blend with its surroundings to avoid detection by others. Camouflage can take the form of matching the background colours. It is widely used in military as a technique disguising either an equipment, troops or a position in order to conceal them from an enemy- Hutchinson Encyclopaedia

 

Aristotle (Born in 384 BCE) referred to it. But We have older references in our literature. The greatest poet of India Kalidasa (First or Second Century BCE) has referred to it in at least two places in his Raghuvamsa. Let us look at it :

 

ग्रथितमौलिरसौ वनमालया तरुपलाशसवर्णतनुच्छदः।
तुरगवल्गनचञ्चलकुण्डलो विरुरुचे रुरुचेष्टितभुमिषु॥ ९-५१

grathitamaulirasau vanamālayā tarupalāśasavarṇatanucchadaḥ |
turagavalganacañcalakuṇḍalo viruruce ruruceṣṭitabhumiṣu || 9-51

grathitamaulirasau vanamAlayA tarupalAshasavarNatanucChadaH |

 

9-51. vana-mAlayA grathita mauliH = with garden, creepers, intertwined, headgear; taru palAsha sa-varNa tanu cChadaH= trees, leaves, equalling, body, covered – hisbodycovered  with agarment  having the colour of theleavesof trees;  turaga valgana ca~ncala kuNDalaH= by horses, galloping, moving, eardrops – one who has such ear-ornaments;  asau= he that Dasharatha;  ruru-ceShTita-bhumiShu= black-striped antelopes, moving, in such places;  vi-ruruce = shone forth.

This King Dasharatha camouflaged with his headgear tied up with a string of wild flowers and leaves,his body covered with a garment having the colour of the leaves of trees, and while his earrings moving about by the galloping of his horse, shone forth on the hunting grounds frequented by the ruru antelopes. [9-51]

Though Kalidasa came after Aristotle, he said that Dasaratha adopted this technique and we knew for sure that Dasaratha lived thousands of years before Aristotle.

 

Kalidasa also spoke about Animal Camouflage in another place:

 

Like the crocodile merges with its surroundings and waits to attack its prey, Aja’s enemies gave him prizes merging with the happy atmosphere, but was waiting to attack him.

लिङ्गैर्मुदः संवृतविक्रियास्ते ह्रदाः प्रसन्ना इव गूढनक्राः।
वैदर्भमामन्त्र्य ययुस्तदीयाम् प्रत्यर्प्य पूजामुपदाछलेन॥ ७-३०

liṅgairmudaḥ saṁvṛtavikriyāste hradāḥ
prasannā iva gūḍhanakrāḥ |
vaidarbhamāmantrya yayustadīyām
pratyarpya pūjāmupadāchalena || 7-30

li~NgairmudaH sa.nvR^itavikriyaaste hradaaH
prasannaa iva guuDhanakraaH |
vaidarbhamaamantrya yayustadiiyaam
pratyarpya puujaamupadaaChalena || 7-30

7-30. mudaH li~NgaiH= smiles, [as an outward] mark – hence with pseudo smiles; sa.nvR^ita vikriyaaH= concealed, change of feeling – wrath; prasannaa= [outwardly] unruffled – lake; guuDha nakraaH= with hidden, alligators; hradaaH iva = lake, as with; [sthitA= those kings who are there]; te= those kings; vaidarbham aamantrya= from king of Vidarbha, taking leave; tadiiyaam puujaam= his – Bhoja’s, hospitality by presents and gifts etc; upadaaChalena= by return gifts; pratyarpya= by requiting; yayuH= went away.

As with a lake hiding alligators under its serene sheet of waters, those suitor-princes concealing their irritation with feigned expressions of joy, bade farewell to the Lord of Vidarbha and went away, but only after having requited the worth of honour done to them, in the pretext of wedding presents. [7-30]

Gaits of Horses

In the first verse (quoted above) Kalidasa (Rv 9-51) used beautiful words to describe the gait of Dasaratha’s horse: Turaga Valgana Sanchala Kundala. Valgana is one of the five gaits of horse. Horse and cow are biggest contribution of Hindus to the civilization. Both figured in the Rig Veda, the oldest scripture in the world (dated between 6000 BCE and 1500 BCE). Latest discoveries show that horse and rhino originated in India illions of years ago. Hindus domesticated themand trained the entire world.Hindu Yakshas (Hyskos) took it to Egypt and from where It spread to other civilised parts of the world. Kikkuli’s training Horse training manual in Sanskrit was discovered in Turkey. It is dated 1300 BCE.

 

Following couplets show that Hindus were well advanced in the Horse training. The very word Horse came from Sanskrit Hrasva=Asva. Since Indian horse has different number of ribs, which is clearly mentioned in the Rig Veda, the Aryan migration was also thrown into dustbin by the latest research.
