Brahmins had a main role in protecting the scriptures from the invaders
Many a times, bigoted people make a big ruckus out of small conflicting things. The recent anti-Brahmin articles written on the walls of Delhi’s Jawaharlal University (JNU) is a recent example of this. It is known to all that it would not have been written by the so-called backward castes. This appears to be a conspiracy by outsiders with so-called vested interests to create a rift among the Hindu community. This has been happening for hundreds of years. Actually it was social work division, which was called Varna system. Everyone was equal in this, the only special thing was that it was considered good to do the work that came from the family tradition, like the son of a businessman also handles his father’s business. There was no compulsion, because Valmiki of Shudra varna wrote Ramayana, Vishwamitra became Brahmin from Kshatriya. There are many such examples. Although most people felt more pride, respect and better work quality in handling the work of their own varna. Just as the letters of the alphabet (also called varna) have their own distinct shape and form, similarly the people of the society also perform different forms of action. If one’s nature is formed according to one’s actions, then it is a different matter, but it has never happened that everyone was made to stand in a line and according to the appearance of the body, different types or vernas were given to each. Varna or varnabhed does not mean color distinction or apartheid at all, because people of every varna will have people of all skin-colours. Similarly, this tradition is also not like foreign caste tradition. This name also seems to have been given to it by misunderstanding. As far as Brahmins are concerned, let me tell you that their life was the most difficult. He had to keep himself away from the luxurious life. Then what is the use of wealth if you cannot enjoy it. Mostly their earned property was useful for others or for charity. There is no dearth of thugs in the world today, nor was there in the past. First of all, they didn’t have any property. Like a beggar, he barely managed to make ends meet for himself and his family with the meager wages he received as dakshina. Then the opponents used to say that the king used to donate a lot of wealth to them. To how many will the king also give it. Had the tax collectors given donations so easily, no one would have been poor today. If a few Brahmins have been given a price, then it should not be applied to all while counting. Even the king did not give it for free. When he got some great knowledge from a Brahmin, then only he used to donate for his spiritual welfare. There is also a saying that free lunch does not exist. I am writing this because I know it practically, it’s not merely a theoretical propaganda. My grandfather himself was an ideal Hindu priest, who used to conduct prayers and worships in people’s homes. Working with him, I have experienced firsthand how difficult and thankless it is to gain spiritual knowledge and share it with the world. This work is like this, it is not the fault of the people. Most of the people have now started to understand these things again. As a result of this, the hashtag “Brahmin Life Matters” was trended on social media in protest against the said provocative writing against Brahmins. Similarly, the hashtag “Main Bhi Brahmin Hoon” also trended heavily on Twitter when cricketer Suresh Raina called himself a Brahmin when many left-wing people protested. We are not saying that all Brahmins are ideal. But this cannot justify Brahminism wrong. Brahmanism is synonymous with Gnosticism, Rationalism or Spiritualism. If somewhere the doctors are not expert, that does not make medical science false. The mystical stories full of spiritual knowledge that we enjoy analyzing on this blog today, have mostly been composed by Brahmins. He has kept them safe even till date. If Brahmins would have bowed down before the attackers, neither the name of Hindu religion nor the mysterious books of this religion would have remained. For whom would Kshatriyas also fight, if Brahmins changed their religion out of fear. It is easy to make fabricated allegations on someone, but it is difficult to give true praise keeping one’s ego down. Then it is said that Brahmins came and settled here from abroad. Firstly, there is no clear proof of this, not at all that they came after attacking, and if we assume that they did come from outside, then they proved to be the biggest protector and benefactor of the land here by mingling with love. What’s wrong with that? Yes, it is necessary that they should understand, encourage and avoid going against the kundalini yoga that’s the fundamental basis of their scriptures and traditions there in.
All the religions and sects of the world are based on Kundalini Yoga
In Shivpuran, Lord Shiva says that by taking incarnation of different Yogis in different eras, he helps Vedavyasas of those eras in the creation of Vedas and Puranas. He describes in two chapters of about 5-6 pages that in which age who became Veda Vyasa, in which Yogi form he incarnated and helped him and who were his disciples. It becomes clear from this that Dhyan Yoga means Kundalini Yoga is the backbone of Sanatan Dharma. To me, all other religions seem like copying the ancient most Sanatan Dharma or taking inspiration from it. This also proves that all religions are based on yoga and work to make yoga simple, popular and practical. When yoga is the most attainable, then why not do yoga directly. If other religions also continue to run together, then there is no harm, rather it is beneficial for yoga.
Meditation is everything
Also Mahadev Shiva says that nothing is possible without meditation means dhyana. They say that salvation can be attained only by meditation, if meditation is not done then all the scriptures and Vedpuranas are fruitless.
New religions and new yoga styles are born out of an effort to adapt spirituality to the changing times
According to the time, reforms should also be done in religion. Means there should be a chance for improvement, it depends on the public whether they accept the improvement or not. However, it will be necessary to avoid conspiracy with this, because many people make even a bad creation very famous by using false propaganda etc. tricks. For this, there should be an unbiased organization which keeps the public informed by properly reviewing the creations. If people don’t give a chance to reform by being a fanatic, then how will religion be able to walk shoulder to shoulder with the world. Reform does not mean destroying old creations. Probably people don’t allow correction because of the fear that it will destroy the old creation. But this thinking is false and delusional. New reforms actually strengthen the old creations because they get the status of father. Has Newton’s old theory been destroyed by Einstein’s new theory of gravity? Gravity is the same, just there are two different ways of understanding it. Similarly consider Advaita and meditation as the basic theme of spirituality. Various Puranas, mantras and worship methods have been made to achieve this. It is possible that by improving these, new creations can be made according to the time, which will be more effective than these to produce sense of nonduality, and will be accepted by more people. Physiological philosophy or shrirvigyan darshan in Hindi is also such a small effort, although it also has scope for development. My personal empirical research is related to this. Meaning it is not such a vision that it came to my mind all of a sudden and I made it. It got its seal of authenticity when I experienced awakening with its help. It is a different matter that along with that, Sanatan Dharma cultural lifestyle, in which I have grown up since childhood, must have also contributed to my that glimpse awakening. But it definitely seems that at least fifty percent contribution must have been of philosophy of physiology. Now where can there be such a pure research in common life that by rejecting all other co-operative causes, the effect of only one cause can be tested. Actually a common man like me does not have much time to do detailed research for such reforms and developments. Just as services of expert and experienced research scientists are taken in other fields of knowledge and science, similarly it can be taken in the field of spirituality. What’s wrong with that? But the problem is that part time or hobby researchers can do a better job than dedicated researchers in this field. Meaning that spirituality is more related to daily behavior. Loneliness based research doesn’t yield practical results. It is also a problem that where would you get the awakened person from? Those who take the exam must also be awake. Only an awakened person knows the real goal. The one who doesn’t even know the goal, how will he do research for it. Till date no machine has been made which can detect someone’s awakening. Anyone can invent some tricks to grow spirituality on the basis of his study, but the research of an awakened person will be considered more real and authentic.
Puranas and other scriptural literature act like bitter medicine mixed with honey
In the previous post, I was telling how King Bhagirath was removing the obstructions in the flow of river Ganges. Quoting scriptures, our grandfather used to say that Bhagirath walked ahead of the Ganges with a spade in his hand and made a path by digging the ground for its water flow, like a farmer making a path for an irrigation channel. Don’t forget, shakti conducting pathway inside our body is also called channel. How much similarity in vocabulary too. My grandfather himself was also a small farmer. Although this may seem strange to the critical scientist, but there is a deep psychological lesson hidden in it. This fable is amusing and encouraging. At the same time, it is also absolutely true from a spiritual point of view, as shown in the previous post. Of course, we could not understand this thing in a gross way, but it left a deep impression on our subconscious mind. The result of that is that in course of time, we ourselves understood this secret in the form of experience. The mythological sages were great practical psychologists. They knew that deep spiritual techniques could not be explained directly to an uneducated and extroverted public, so they used to reveal those techniques in a practical, mystical and entertaining way, so that they continue to have a deep impact on the subconscious mind, so that the people gradually become aware of them itself without any special effort. Gradual ripening makes a fruit more sweet. These fable type spiritual stories are prevalent in the society till date. If you ask someone what benefit he got from these stories, he will not be able to tell anything concretely, but will definitely call them worshipable and definitely worth reading. Many stories have been deliberately created by sages in such a way that they cannot be revealed at all or are too much difficult to reveal. If everything is known then what will be left to believe. The sages recognized the power of belief and suspense. What happens is that when the mystery of some stories is revealed, then the veracity of other stories is also believed. By the way, it seems impossible to expose unnecessary stories. The more important the mysterious story is, the easier it is to uncover it. Although I do not like to say much about religion, but many things have to be said in a limited way, because spirituality is very strongly linked with religion, and many things are difficult to separate. There has been so much disbelief among the people, so it has become necessary that by describing them in a spiritual and scientific way, the doubts of the opponents should be dispelled.
