Understanding the Divinity

if there is any word which is mysterious than word “Mysterious” itself is the word Divine. from bliss to unknowable and unexplainable everything comes under this single magical word Divine. if there is anything which nearly all religion says that we must achieve this goal in this human form of life. there is huge importance is given on human form just because this form of life is very very difficult to get. we gone so many different levels of consciousness with so many different forms that it is really hard to achieve this human form.

Divinity is not a word it is state which is easy to achieve yet very few is capable for this. there are different levels of human understanding, not everyone is capable to absorb or understand this mysterious knowledge but it does not mean that they should exclude from this ultimate truth, at – least in this land (Bharat or india) it is so. people from this land have been studied and researched all human except from food to clothing. they designed methods for every levels of people consciousness, from ritualistic approach to pure meditative and tantric approach. every method is unique in its own way.

In this age (Kali yuga according to Vedic time divisions) people’s understanding is not that much developed for spiritual realm they developed much for gross level and for today’s world problem at large extent this is also the cause. purely gross development is always dangerous. for this age Vedas recommends chanting (japa meditation ) for human beings just because of our gross understanding of reality. it does not mean that all other methods are not attainable or not good it is just that it is not easily adoptable in today’s world.

Divinity does not lie in the word it is evolution from gross to subtler and at last being with ultimate reality, to achieve this we have to pass some test. we have to be egoless to start, which itself is bigger challenge for humans. now a days we already have become so intolerance :), just kidding but its true that we have much ego than previous any generation, in hindi one saying is there that “Paisa juth bulwata hi hai” means with money you will get habit of lying and with habit of lying ego will come and with ego a lot of others thing will follow. here i want to clarify that nobody is opposing the money, it is just you have to be alert to observe your mental state.
it is much complex than infinity and much easier than Zero, how wired it is :). As we develop only frontal lobe, which is only for our survival. that survival have become so big now that we can not think beyond this and it is only cause for our world problem. we need to choose to evolve rather than survive, survival will stop one day but evolution will not, survival contain very basic things we have to choose something bigger for this human form of life.

India – Place for everyone (Part -2 )

                                                              India – Place for everyone

Once upon a time……, every story start like this, but it is really once upon a time, it is well thousand years old story, don’t be afraid it is not about monkey or chimpanzee, it is about a country which was at his peak, so this story starts like this- Once upon a time there was a country known as Aryavart, fondly people called this country as “Bharat”. This country got this name because there was a one king with the same name. As time passes this country also seen some changes and now it is India, a country which have people of all religion, color and caste.

It was a country which was tortured by many other countries they just wanted to capture the whole world without thinking anything about humanity – they just destroyed their culture, tradition etc. one of the major blow was done to India by Britishers they not just ruled nearly one century, but they also destroyed an economy, religion nearly everything – they destroyed the world first and biggest Nalanda university which was the hub of ancient and most mysterious knowledge, its library was so big that when Britishers set it to fire it took a whole month to vanish. Behind all these there was one reason that this country believed World is single and every human being is unique, precious, but despite all this country again stand and flourishing.

When some country was threatening some religion they flew to many countries, but didn’t find any shelter finally they came to India and they prospered over the year. People can ask a question about this maturity living, they can point out incident which whitewash this claim, but as I said still it is much safer than any other country. Bharat to India journey also changed some value and tradition form outer side, they were confused what to follow, but as time is one of the best cures for all things, now  people realizing what to follow.

When Hitler was wanted to kill every Jews they flew to a different part of the word, but rarely find what they wanted, people adopted him but it took him years, but here, India is a different story for them, they came and flourish like it was their own country. People didn’t care from where you came or what is your color or caste as long as you have love for them. Sometimes it cost badly but even then they were not ready to boycott.

there is the number of incidents but here I am going to give you one recent example, when Bangladesh was fighting for their independence, a lot of people lost their lives and lakh of people became refugee, and India was the safest place for them, maybe it will surprise you but it is true nearly 20 crore Bangladeshi people is still living in India as a refugee or illegally. They are working here, living life like they are part of the system. Surprisingly Indian government also knows this and have full data. but the problem is can India make a decision and throw them out the answer is NO, it’s not that India is not capable, if India can fight world’s highest hill battle then it is nothing it is a problem of heart.

Still people are coming from neighboring country in search of their livelihood or in search of better and safe place – India is welcoming everyone despite facing problem.

             “Welcome to Bharat”

               “The Republic of India”

Bharat to India): part 1 moment

Why Bharat is so different and important for the whole world- it is the country which have well civilized culture from centuries well before Jesus and Mohammed. It is the oldest and once it was most advanced country in the world, it’s true that  currently it is not what it was but as Shree Bhagavad Gita  teaches us that nothing in this world is permanent despite its goodness or purity. It was known as golden bird and hub of all modern knowledge. People all around the world used to come here for knowledge.

But as Indian tradition says living in the present moment is the only way to lead happy life, so what is past just learn from that and leave it use this knowledge for the benefit of yourself and others.

World of the wonder
World of the wonder

Analyzing the present – when we see India today it’s hard to believe to that it is the same country which have so rich culture and knowledge. People who come here and think like this, I am sure they are just visitor for one or two day, they are not here to understand the culture or knowledge this country even today have. For them knowledge is just a technology. Knowledge and wisdom are much beyond this. There is no doubt, I also agree that the present situation is not so much serene or good, people are also not very knowledge even about their own culture or tradition but still  you can find true people who can give and guide you about true nature of this country.

Today India is facing many challenge and problems on a different front whether it is the population explosion or corruption or economic fluctuation despite all these things it is making constant and steady progress, making impact on the world map and in many field it is becoming very favorable place like in the medical field India is very hot spot.

But still it is not there where it should be, some mistakes in the past from our political leader creates today most of the problem, whether it is Kashmir issue, Bangladesh refugee issue, population explosion (here maybe you remembered Sanjay Gandhi initiative in this area). But now we cannot regret, there is no time for this.

 

Today some of the Indian cities are world famous not because of their heritage value but because of their achievement, whether it is Gujarat or Bihar two digit growth, there is world famous organization and people who are working all over the world.

Future – future is not fixed it is dynamic, known as ever changing future. Here I am optimistic not just by heart but also with facts. Election is already started and there will be government change, new government is nothing less than a fresh start. If a city like Gujarat can achieve so much with limited resource then why not whole country with so much unlimited resource. Bihar and other state are very good and fresh example.

Today people are now started to look back their culture with modern adaptation and view. There is whole new generation which is full of confidence and dream and want to do something big and different, we need to 

channelize this in the right direction.

In the past we already proved so much thing and future is full of new and exciting things.

To live in India is living every moment in something new, here you will learn every second

 

Nalanda – world first international university on recorded history

Nalanda first international university in human record human history. Well situated in before 500 B.C. It was a center of highest learning for all over world. It is mot just a myth. It was reality.

Nalanda was one of the world’s first residential universities, it had dormitories for students. It is also one of the most famous universities. In its heyday, it accommodated over 10,000 students and 2,000 teachers. The university was considered an architectural masterpiece, and was marked by a lofty wall and one gate. Nalanda had eight separate compounds and ten temples, along with many other meditation halls and classrooms. On the grounds were lakes and parks. The library was located in a nine storied building where meticulous copies of texts were produced. The subjects taught at Nalanda University covered every field of learning, and it attracted pupils and scholars from Korea, Japan, China, Tibet, Indonesia, Persia and Turkey. During the period of Harsha, the monastery is reported to have owned 200 villages given as grants.

The Tang Dynasty Chinese pilgrim Xuanzang left detailed accounts of the university in the 7th century. He described how the regularly laid-out towers, forest of pavilions, harmikas and temples seemed to “soar above the mists in the sky” so that from their cells the monks “might witness the birth of the winds and clouds.

An end with no reason –

Evidence in literature suggests that in 1193, the Nalanda University was sacked by the fanatic Bakhtiyar Khilji, a Turk. Muslim conquest in India is seen by scholars as one of the reasons of the decline of Buddhism in India. The Persian historian Minhaj-i-Siraj, in his chronicle the Tabaqat-I-Nasiri, reported that thousands of monks were burned alive and thousands beheaded as Khilji tried his best to uproot Buddhism the burning of the library continued for several months and “smoke from the burning manuscripts hung for days like a dark pall over the low hills.

The last throne-holder of Nalanda, Shakyashribhadra, fled to Tibet in 1204 CE at the invitation of the Tibetan translator Tropu Lotsawa (Khro-phu Lo-tsa-ba Byams-pa dpal). In Tibet, he started an ordination lineage of the Mulasarvastivadin lineage to complement the two existing ones.
When the Tibetan translator Chag Lotsawa (Chag Lo-tsa-ba, 1197–1264) visited the site in 1235, he found it damaged and looted, with a 90-year-old teacher, Rahula Shribhadra, instructing a class of about 70 students. During Chag Lotsawa’s time there an incursion by Turkish soldiers caused the remaining students to flee. Despite all this, “remnants of the debilitated Buddhist community continued to struggle on under scarce resources until 1400 CE when Chagalaraja was reportedly the last king to have patronized Nalanda.

Ahir considers the destruction of the temples, monasteries, centers of learning at Nalanda and northern India to be responsible for the demise of ancient Indian scientific thought in mathematics, astronomy, alchemy, and anatomy.

But now all is gone, past. But we have to look this glorious history which was real indian culture and knowledge source for all the world. Current state government, indian government and group of mentor including nobel laureate. All Asian country are helping for this project and why not they all are schoolers of this university.

Here I want to thank various authentic sources which held survey and reveal truth about this and ancient knowledge hub of the world.
