Some interesting facts revealed
The inquisitive human mind naturally yearns to understand the universe and man’s place within it. Today scientists rely on powerful telescopes and sophisticated computers to formulate cosmological theories. In former times, people got their information from traditional books of wisdom. Followers of the Vedic culture, for example, learned about the cosmos from scriptures like the Srimad-Bhagavatam, or Bhagavata Purana. But the Bhagavatam’s descriptions of the universe often baffle modern students of Vedic literature. Here Bhaktivedanta Institute scientist Sadaputa Dasa (Dr. Richard Thompson) suggests a framework for understanding the Bhagavatam’s descriptions that squares with our experience and modern discoveries.
This article was adapted from Mysteries of the Sacred Universe:
The Srimad-Bhagavatam presents an earth-centered conception of the cosmos. At first glance the cosmology seems foreign, but a closer look reveals that not only does the cosmology of the Bhagavatam describe the world of our experience, but it also presents a much larger and more complete cosmological picture. I’ll explain.
The Srimad-Bhagavatam’s mode of presentation is very different from the familiar modern approach. Although the Bhagavatam’s “Earth” (disk- shaped Bhu-mandala) may look unrealistic, careful study shows that the Bhagavatam uses Bhu-mandala to represent at least four reasonable and consistent models: (1) a polar- projection map of the Earth globe, (2) a map of the solar system, (3) a topographical map of south-central Asia, and (4) a map of the celestial realm of the demigods.
Another view of multi-planed earth. Our most primitive senses can only see present earth.
For Each planetary system, a definitive body is given by Lord Krishna to sustain in that Loka (planet).
Chaitanya Mahaprabhu remarked, “In every verse of Srimad-Bhagavatam and in every syllable, there are various meanings.”(Chaitanya-charitamrita, Madhya 24.318) This appears to be true, in particular, of the cosmological section of the Bhagavatam, and it is interesting to see how we can bring out and clarify some of the meanings with reference to modern astronomy.

When one structure is used to represent several things in a composite map, there are bound to be contradictions. But these do not cause a problem if we understand the underlying intent. We can draw a parallel with medieval paintings portraying several parts of a story in one composition. For example, Masaccio’s painting “The Tribute Money” shows Saint Peter in three parts of a Biblical story. We see him taking a coin from a fish, speaking to Jesus, and paying a tax collector. From a literal standpoint it is contradictory to have Saint Peter doing three things at once, yet each phase of the Biblical story makes sense in its own context.
A similar painting from India (as shown below this para) shows three parts of a story about Krishna. Such paintings contain apparent contradictions, such as images of one character in different places, but a person who understands the story line will not be disturbed by this. The same is true of the Bhagavatam, which uses one model to represent different features of the cosmos.
The Fifth Canto of the Srimad-Bhagavatam tells of innumerable universes. Each one is contained in a spherical shell surrounded by layers of elemental matter that mark the boundary between mundane space and the unlimited spiritual world.
The region within the shell (as shown in figure below) is called the Brahmanda, or “Brahma egg.” It contains an earth disk or plane—called Bhu-mandala—that divides it into an upper, heavenly half and a subterranean half, filled with water. Bhu-mandala is divided into a series of geographic features, traditionally called dvipas, or “islands,” varshas, or “regions,” and oceans.
In the center of Bhu-mandala (shown below) is the circular “island” of Jambudvipa, with nine varsha subdivisions. These include Bharata-varsha, which can be understood in one sense as India and in another as the total area inhabited by human beings. In the center of Jambudvipa stands the cone-shaped Sumeru Mountain, which represents the world axis and is surmounted by the city of Brahma, the universal creator.
To any modern, educated person, this sounds like science fiction. But is it? Let’s consider the four ways of seeing the Bhagavatam’s descriptions of the Bhu- mandala.
We begin by discussing the interpretation of Bhu-mandala as a planisphere, or a polar-projection map of the Earth globe. This is the first model given by the Bhagavatam. A stereographic projection is an ancient method of mapping points on the surface of a sphere to points on a plane. We can use this method to map a modern Earth globe onto a plane, and the resulting flat projection is called a planisphere (Figure 5). We can likewise view Bhu-mandala as a stereographic projection of a globe (Figure 6). In India such globes exist. In the example shown here (Figure 7,), the land area between the equator and the mountain arc is Bharata-varsha, corresponding to greater India. India is well represented, but apart from a few references to neighboring places, this globe does not give a realistic map of the Earth. Its purpose was astronomical, rather than geographical.
According to Srimad Bhagwatam : Inverse Stereographic Earth
Although the Bhagavatam doesn’t explicitly describe the Earth as a globe, it does so indirectly. For example, it points out that night prevails diametrically opposite to a point where it is day. Likewise, the sun sets at a point opposite where it rises. Therefore, the Bhagavatam does not present the naive view that the Earth is flat.
We can compare Bhu-mandala with an astronomical instrument called an astrolabe, popular in the Middle Ages. On the astrolabe, an off-centered circle represents the orbit of the sun—the ecliptic. The Earth is represented in stereographic projection on a flat plate, called the mater. The ecliptic circle and important stars are represented on another plate, called the rete. Different planetary orbits could likewise be represented by different plates, and these would be seen projected onto the Earth plate when one looks down on the instrument.
The Bhagavatam similarly presents the orbits of the sun, the moon, planets, and important stars on a series of planes parallel to Bhu-mandala.
Seeing Bhu-mandala as a polar projection is one example of how it doesn’t represent a flat Earth.
Here’s another way to look at Bhu-mandala that also shows that it’s not a flat-Earth model.
Descriptions of Bhu-mandala have features that identify it as a model of the solar system. In the previous section I interpreted Bhu-mandala as a planisphere map. But now, we’ll take it as a literal plane. When we do this, it looks at first like we’re back to the naive flat Earth, with the bowl of the sky above and the underworld below.
The scholars Giorgio de Santillana and Hertha von Dechend carried out an intensive study of myths and traditions and concluded that the so-called flat Earth of ancient times originally represented the plane of the ecliptic (the orbit of the sun) and not the Earth on which we stand. Later on, according to de Santillana and von Dechend, the original cosmic understanding of the earth was apparently lost, and the Earth beneath our feet was taken literally as a flat plate. In India, the earth of the Puranas has often been taken as literally flat. But the details given in the Bhagavatam show that its cosmology is much more sophisticated.
Not only does the Bhagavatam use the ecliptic model, but it turns out that the disk of Bhu-mandala corresponds in some detail to the solar system (Figure 8). The solar system is nearly flat. The sun, the moon, and the five traditionally known planets—Mercury through Saturn—all orbit nearly in the ecliptic plane. Thus Bhu- mandala does refer to something flat, but it’s not the Earth.
One striking feature of the Bhagavatam’s descriptions has to do with size. If we compare Bhu-mandala with the Earth, the solar system out to Saturn, and the Milky Way galaxy, Bhu-mandala matches the solar system closely, while radically differing in size from Earth and the galaxy.
Furthermore, the structures of Bhu-mandala correspond with the planetary orbits of the solar system (Figure 9). If we compare the rings of Bhu-mandala with the orbits of Mercury, Venus (Figure 10), Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, we find several close alignments that give weight to the hypothesis that Bhu-mandala was deliberately designed as a map of the solar system.
Until recent times, astronomers generally underestimated the distance from the earth to the sun. In particular, Claudius Ptolemy, the greatest astronomer of classical antiquity, seriously underestimated the Earth-sun distance and the size of the solar system. It is remarkable, therefore, that the dimensions of Bhu-mandala in the Bhagavatam are consistent with modern data on the size of the sun’s orbit and the solar system as a whole.
So with blessings of Lord Krishna, what lalit kumar haribhakt thinks is that the framework of the solar system was created from simple cylinder sliced in to various forms and later given rigid shapes, they were magnetically placed with space-time manifestation where in each planet has different and unique rotational motion to be in sync with the solar system. This was just to suffice scientificity. While as per Srimad Bhagwatam, the universes are created by mere imagination of Lord Krishna
Jambudvipa, the central hub of Bhumandala, can be understood as a local topographical map of part of south- central Asia. This is the third of the four interpretations of Bhu-mandala. In the planisphere interpretation, Jambudvipa represents the northern hemisphere of the Earth globe. But the detailed geographic features of Jambudvipa do not match the geography of the northern hemisphere. They do, however, match part of the Earth.
Six horizontal and two vertical mountain chains divide Jambudvipa into nine regions, or varshas (Figure 11,top left). The southernmost region is called Bharata-varsha. Careful study shows that this map corresponds to India plus adjoining areas of south-central Asia. The first step in making this identification is to observe that the Bhagavatam assigns many rivers in India to Bharata- varsha. Thus Bharata-varsha represents India. The same can be said of many mountains in Bharata-varsha. In particular, the Bhagavatam places the Himalayas to the north of Bharata-varsha in Jambudvipa (Figure 11).
A detailed study of Puranic accounts allows the other mountain ranges of Jambudvipa to be identified with mountain ranges in the region north of India. Although this region includes some of the most desolate and mountainous country in the world, it was nonetheless important in ancient times. For example, the famous Silk Road passes through this region. The Pamir Mountains can be identified with Mount Meru and Ilavrita-varsha, the square region in the center of Jambudvipa. (Note that Mount Meru does not represent the polar axis in this interpretation.)
Other Puranas give more geographical details that support this interpretation.
We can also understand Bhu-mandala as a map of the celestial realm of the demigods, or devas. One curious feature of Jambudvipa is that the Bhagavatam describes all of the varshas other than Bharata-varsha as heavenly realms, where the inhabitants live for ten thousand years without suffering. This has led some scholars to suppose that Indians used to imagine foreign lands as celestial paradises. But the Bhagavatam does refer to barbaric peoples outside India, such as Huns, Greeks, Turks, and Mongolians, who were hardly thought to live in paradise. One way around this is to suppose that Bharata-varsha includes the entire Earth globe, while the other eight varshas refer to celestial realms outside the Earth. This is a common understanding in India.
But the simplest explanation for the heavenly features of Jambudvipa is that Bhu-mandala was also intended to represent the realm of the devas. Like the other interpretations we have considered, this one is based on a group of mutually consistent points in the cosmology of the Bhagavatam.
First of all, consider the very large sizes of mountains and land areas in Jambudvipa. For example, India is said to be 72,000 miles (9,000 yojanas) from north to south, or nearly three times the circumference of the Earth. Likewise, the Himalayas are said to be 80,000 miles high.
People in India in ancient times used to go in pilgrimage on foot from one end of India to the other, so they knew how large India is. Why does the Bhagavatam give such unrealistic distances? The answer is that Jambudvipa doubles as a model of the heavenly realm, in which everything is on a superhuman scale. The Bhagavatam portrays the demigods and other divine beings that inhabit this realm to be correspondingly large. Figure 12 below shows Lord Siva in comparison with Europe, according to one text of the Bhagavatam.
Why would the Bhagavatam describe Jambudvipa as both part of the earth and part of the celestial realm? Because there’s a connection between the two. To understand, let’s consider the idea of parallel worlds. By siddhis, or mystic perfections, one can take shortcuts across space. This is illustrated by a story from the Bhagavatam in which the mystic yogini Citralekha abducts Aniruddha from his bed in Dvaraka and transports him mystically to a distant city (Figure 13).
Besides moving from one place to another in ordinary space, the mystic siddhis enable one to travel in the all- pervading ether or to enter another continuum. The classical example of a parallel continuum is Krishna’s transcendental realm of Vrindavan, said to be unlimitedly expansive and to exist in parallel to the finite, earthly Vrindavan in India.
Satyuga had people who can travel inter-planetary systems with their body and soul
The Sanskrit literature abounds with stories of parallel worlds. For example, the Mahabharata tells the story of how the Naga princess Ulupi abducted Arjuna while he was bathing in the Ganges River (Figure 14). Ulupi pulled Arjuna down not to the riverbed, as we would expect, but into the kingdom of the Nagas (celestial snakelike beings), which exists in another dimension.
Mystical travel explains how the worlds of the devas are connected with our world. In particular, it explains how Jambudvipa, as a celestial realm of devas, is connected with Jambudvipa as the Earth or part of the Earth. Thus the double model of Jambudvipa makes sense in terms of the Puranic understanding of the siddhis.
The Vertical Dimension in Bhagavata Cosmology
For centuries the cosmology of the Bhagavatam has seemed incomprehensible to most observers, encouraging many people either to summarily reject it or to accept it literally with unquestioning faith. If we take it literally, the cosmology of the Bhagavatam not only differs from modern astronomy, but, more important, it also suffers from internal contradictions and violations of common sense. These very contradictions, however, point the way to a different understanding of Bhagavata cosmology in which it emerges as a deep and scientifically sophisticated system of thought. The contradictions show that they are caused by overlapping self-consistent interpretations that use the same textual elements to expound different ideas.
Each of the four interpretations, presented here deserves to be taken seriously because each is supported by many points in the text that are consistent with one another while agreeing with modern astronomy. I’ve applied the context-sensitive or multiple aspect approach, in which the same subject has different meanings in different contexts. This approach allows for the greatest amount of information to be stored in a picture or text, reducing the work required by the artist or writer. At the same time, it means that the work cannot be taken literally as a one-to-one model of reality, and it requires the viewer or reader to understand the different relevant contexts. This can be difficult when knowledge of context is lost over long periods of time.
In the Bhagavatam, the context-sensitive approach was rendered particularly appropriate by the conviction that reality, in the ultimate issue, is avak-manasam, or beyond the reach of the mundane mind or words. This implies that a literal, one-to-one model of reality is unattainable, and so one may as well pack as much meaning as possible into a necessarily incomplete description of the universe. The cosmology of the Bhagavata Purana is a sophisticated system of thought, with multiple layers of meaning, both physical and metaphysical. It combines practical understanding of astronomy with spiritual conceptions to produce a meaningful picture of the universe and reality.
Super natural aliens who create massive crop circles today, within few seconds, across the globe also represent shapes of Srimad Bhagwatam. So its proven beyond doubt that the entire solar system is closely monitored by Lord Krishna himself, the most merciful and lovable Supreme God himself.
This further suggests that even today the Hindu God, Lord Krishna is guiding us all through his mystical powers to know real truth of our existence

Bhavisya Purana existed for more than thousands of years ago; much before islam came into existence.
Bhavisya Puran was most popularly read and recited by saints and sages since almost 3000 years BC. When mughals entered Bharat (India), they first tried to destroy and burn all versions and copies of Bhavisya Puran so that the world is not able to know the truth of islam. But as God wishes, no one can stop the truth from spreading so religious researchers from the world over tried to revive Vedas and Puranas to find the truth about human existence thereby relying on ancient texts to find the facts about universe and cosmic arrangement.
The research lead to startling revelations among non-muslims and then the question was raised in every religious debates, citing Bhavisya Purana, which forced islamic scholars to claim and change their stance that islam is oldest religion to save their face from the fact that islam is demonic religion as predicted by Bhavisya Puran much before islam was even conceived.
According to Bhavishya Purana Muhammad was the rebirth of Tripurasura the Demon. Tripurasura was killed by Shiva in his (Tripurasura’s) past life. This english translation of original sanskrit version of Bhavishya Puran: Prati Sarg: Part III:3,3 5-27.
Translated source: bhavishyapuran.blogspot.com
Shri Suta Gosvami said: In the dynasty of king Shalivahana, there were ten kings who went to the heavenly planets after ruling for over 500 years. Then gradually the morality declined on the earth. At that time Bhojaraja was the tenth of the kings on the earth. When he saw that the moral law of conduct was declining he went to conquer all the directions of his country with ten-thousand soldiers commanded by Kalidasa. He crossed the river Sindhu and conquered over the gandharas, mlecchas, shakas, kasmiris, naravas and sathas. He punished them and collected a large ammount of wealth. Then the king went along with Mahamada (Muhammad), the preceptor of mleccha-dharma, and his followers to the great god, Lord Shiva, situated in the desert. He bathed Lord Shiva with Ganges water and worshipped him in his mind with pancagavya (milk, ghee, yoghurt, cow dung, and cow urine) and sandalwood paste, etc. After he offered some prayers and pleased him.
Suta Goswami said: After hearing the king’s prayers, Lord Shiva said: O king Bhojaraja, you should go to the place called Mahakakshvara, that land is called Vahika and now is being contaminated by the mlecchas. In that terrible country there no longer exists dharma. There was a mystic demon named Tripura(Tripurasura), whom I have already burnt to ashes, he has come again by the order of Bali. He has no origin but he achieved a benediction from me. His name is Mahamada(Muhammad) and his deeds are like that of a ghost. Therefore, O king, you should not go to this land of the evil ghost. By my mercy your intelligence will be purified. Hearing this the king came back to his country and Mahamada(Muhammad) came with them to the bank of the river Sindhu. He was expert in expanding illusion, so he said to the king very pleasingly: O great king, your god has become my servant. Just see, as he eats my remnants, so I will show you. The king became surprised when he saw this just before them. Then in anger Kalidasa rebuked Mahamada(Muhammad) “O rascal, you have created an illusion to bewilder the king, I will kill you, you are the lowest…”
That city is known as their site of pilgrimage, a place which was Madina or free from intoxication. Having a form of a ghost (Bhuta), the expert illusionist Mahamada(Muhammad) appeared at night in front of king Bhojaraja and said: O king, your religion is of course known as the best religion among all. Still I am going to establish a terrible and demoniac religion by the order of the Lord . The symptoms of my followers will be that they first of all will cut their genitals, have no shikha, but having beard, be wicked, make noise loudly and eat everything. They should eat animals without performing any rituals. This is my opinion. They will perform purificatory act with the musala or a pestle as you purify your things with kusha. Therefore, they will be known as musalman, the corrupters of religion. Thus the demoniac religion will be founded by me. After having heard all this the king came back to his palace and that ghost(Muhammad) went back to his place.
The intelligent king, Bhojaraj established the language of Sanskrit in three varnas – the brahmanas, kshatriyas and vaisyas – and for the shudras he established prakrita-bhasha, the ordinary language spoken by common men. After ruling his kingdom for 50 years, he went to the heavenly planet. The moral laws established by him were honored even by the demigods. The arya-varta, the pious land is situated between Vindhyacala and Himacala or the mountains known as Vindhya and Himalaya. The Aryans reside there, but varna-sankaras reside on the lower part of Vindhya. The musalman people were kept on the other side of the river Sindhu.
On the island of Barbara, Tusha and many others also the followers of Isamsiha were also situated as they were managed by a king or demigods.
Lord Shiva said: O king Bhojaraja, you should go to the place called Mahakakshvara, that land is called Vahika and now is being contaminated by the mlecchas. In that terrible country there no longer exists dharma. There was a mystic demon named Tripura(Tripurasur), whom I have already burnt to ashes, he has come again by the order of Bali. He has no origin but he achieved a benediction from me. His name is Mahamada(Muhammad) and his deeds are like that of a ghost.
1 A barbarian,a non Aryan ( One not speaking the Sanskrit Language or not conform in to Hindu or Aryan institutions),a foreigner in general
2 An Outcast, a very low man, Bodhayana thus defines the word:
gomAmsakhAdako yastu viruddhaM bahubhAshhate | sarvAchAravihInashcha mlechchha ityabhidhiiyate |
He who eats cow’s meat, and speaks a lot against shastras and he, who is also devoid of all forms of spiritual practice, is called a mlechha.
3 A sinner, A wicked person, A savage or barbarian race
No other organisation in the world but RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) must claim to be the most reachable, approachable and patriotic organisation for the public at large.
RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) is the only such organisation where there is equality among members. Harmony which even close knitted families can envy of.
The legacy which RSS carries is the reason why even several foreigners and muslims who became members to spy the functioning of the organisation came forward later to make statements that RSS is the best and one of the most patriotic organisation; which teaches how to lead life peacefully while helping poor people in time of their distress. Helping each and every one without even asking for favours or money. And the world should take lessons from RSS.
M. K . Gandhi wanted to garner support from all associations and organisations for freedom struggle. During M. K. Gandhi’s visit to RSS Camp accompanied by Mahadev Desai and Mirabehn at Wardha in 1934, he was surprised by the discipline and the absence of untouchability in RSS and commented “When I visited the RSS Camp, I was very much surprised by your discipline and absence of untouchablity.” He personally inquired to Swayamsevaks and found that they were living and eating together in the camp without bothering to know their castes. He further said that “Congress should learn few ethics from RSS, the way they give mutual respect to all its members. They should also take note of how to spread knowledge of peace while adhering to principles of brotherhood taught in Hinduism”
Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar who was dejected the way Congress was treating dalits and their issues, while visiting the RSS camp at Pune in 1939 observed that Swayamsevaks were moving in absolute equality and brotherhood without even caring to know the cast of others. In his address to the Swayamsevaks, he said that ” This is the first time that I am visiting the camp of Sangh volunters. I am happy to find absolute equality between Savarniyas (Upper cast) and Harijans (Lower cast) without any one being aware of such difference existing.” When he asked Dr Hedgewar whether there were any untouchables in the camp, he replied that there are neither “touchables” nor “untouchables” but only Hindus.
It is noted that RSS is taking a lead role in providing the education to people of rural India and socially backward classes living under the extreme poverty. Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar always repeated his praise in various future speeches while citing brotherhood example of RSS, Sangh parivar. The unity among people seen among RSS members touched his heart to the core.
Field Marshal Cariappa in his speech to RSS volunteers said “RSS is my heart’s work. My dear young men, don’t be disturbed by uncharitable comments of interested persons. Look ahead! Go ahead! The country is standing in need of your services”.
Dr Zakir Hussain the former President of India once told to Milad Mehfil in Monghyar on 20 November 1949 “The allegations against RSS of violence and hatred against Muslims are wholly false. Muslims should learn the lesson of mutual love, cooperation and organization from RSS. The way RSS cadres remain calm and at peace even while dealing with crisis is commendable. They never have any kind of hatred feeling for any human being and serve all.
Noted Gandhian leader and the leader of Sarvoday movement, Jayaprakash Narayan, who earlier was a vocal opponent of RSS had the following to say about it in 1977 “RSS is a revolutionary organization. No other organization in the country comes anywhere near it. It alone has the capacity to transform society, end casteism and wipe the tears from the eyes of the poor.” He further added “I have great expectations from this revolutionary organization which has taken up the challenge of creating a new India”.
For their self-less welfare work for 1963 war victims and army personnels, Prime Minister Pandit Nehru felicitated them personally and asked them to join the republic day parade along with army squad and appreciated their efforts to work for the upliftment of India; irrespective of caste, creed and race.
In 1967, Jahanara Imam, said “If RSS was as powerful as Congress then partition of India and Pakistan would not have happened, and innocent killings had been avoided”.
RSS Charity And Welfare
Since the inception of RSS, the mission was to support poor people and victims of contingent situations; whether climatic or crisis. This is a long and continuous tradition known with the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh). The RSS was instrumental in relief efforts after the 1971 Orissa Cyclone and the 1977 Andhra Pradesh Cyclone.
An RSS-affiliated NGO, Seva Bharati, has adopted thousands of children till date (irrespective of religion – 65% muslims rest Hindus, Sikhs and Christians) from militancy affected areas of Jammu and Kashmir to provide them education at least up to Higher Secondary level. They have also taken care of many victims of the Kargil War of 1999.
RSS swayamsewaks were first to come forward for Bhopal gas tragedy victims, they were first to arrive for Latur earthquake victims. RSS members are known to be present every where; whenever natural calamity strikes.
The RSS assisted in relief efforts quite extensively during the 2001 Gujarat earthquake. They helped rebuild villages. They “earned kudos” from many varied agencies and sources for their actions. For instance, in the 2001 Gujarat earthquake, K. Srinivas, District Collector of Ahmedabad, Indian newsmagazine Outlook and India Today reported:
This is an old tradition in the RSS. To be the first at any disaster strike: floods, cyclone, drought and now quake. In Kutch, too, the RSS was the first to reach the affected areas. At Anjar, a town in ruins, the RSS was present much before the Army took the lead in finding survivors and fishing out the dead.
—K. Srinivas, District collector, Ahmedabad
Literally within minutes RSS volunteers were at the scenes of distress. Across Gujarat, the (RSS) cadres were the saviors. Even as the state machinery went comatose in the first two days after the quake, the cadre-based machinery of the Sangh fanned out throughout the state. Approximately 35,000 RSS members in uniform were pressed into service.
It is conceded by even their worst detractors that the RSS has been in the forefront of the non-official rescue and relief (operations). This has led to an upsurge of goodwill for the Sangh
Seva Bharati conducted relief operations in the aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. Activities included building shelters for the victims, providing food, clothes and medical necessities. The RSS assisted relief efforts during the 2004 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake and the subsequent tsunami.
In 2006, RSS participated in relief efforts to provide basic necessities such as food, milk and potable water to the people of Surat, Gujarat who were affected by massive floods in the region.
The RSS volunteers carried out massive relief and rehabilitation work after the floods ravaged North Karnataka and some districts of the state of Andhra Pradesh.
According to Cho Ramaswamy, the editor of Tughlaq magazine, the RSS-sponsored Seva Bharati did yeoman service following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, despite a lack of formal acknowledgment.
The Only Organisation To Support Sikhs In 1984 Riots
When no organisation came forward to support Sikh victims in 1984 riots conducted by Congress under leadership of Rajiv Gandhi (who ignored massacre of thousands of innocent Sikhs in the hands of congress people and made irresponsible statement - When a big tree falls, the ground shakes). RSS was the only organisation to come forward and whole-heartedly support Sikh victims. Khushwant Singh’s observation can be cited here.
RSS helped protecting Sikhs during 1984 anti-Sikh riots. Sikh intellectual and author of ‘A History of the Sikhs’, Khushwant Singh, credits members of the RSS with helping and protecting Sikhs who were being targeted by members of the Congress (I) party under Rajiv Gandhi leadership during the riots.
RSS has played an honorable role in maintaining Hindu-Sikh unity before and after the murder of Indira Gandhi in Delhi and in other places It was the Congress (I) leaders who instigated mobs in 1984 and got more than 3000 people killed. I must give due credit to RSS and the BJP for showing courage and protecting helpless Sikhs during those difficult days. No less a person than Atal Bihari Vajpayee himself intervened at a couple of places to help poor taxi drivers.
RSS respects country as mother land and always thought of blending all Indians; Hindus, Muslims, Christains, Sikhs as integral part of Indian culture. RSS always worked for the people of India and would continue to work for their development. The only sad part is they never carry promotional campaign of their work. Its their way of working that they believe in self-less welfare for the society and people. Such is the simplicity of self-less volunteers of RSS – who are truly patriotic heroes of India. All the people who got benefited come forward and acknowledge good work done by RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh).
RSS prayer emits fragrance of world brotherhood and harmony among Indians thereby willing to sacrifice everything for the motherland and saluting motherland.

The post was made to make people aware of the fact that RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) is most patriotic organisation ever known to Indian people. It was also to clear doubts which might have aroused due to recent false allegations made by Hijra Sushil Kumar Shinde ex-home minister of India.
Ashwathama Alive – Ashwathama Seen By People, personal accounts shared
Due to contamination of english language Ashwathama is spelled dfierently. Aswathama was cursed to roam in Kaliyuga due to his sinful deed of killing innocent 5 sons of Draupadi, wife of Pandavas.
No one can escape Prarabdh. If you worship Lord Krishna, then you can think of changing your Prarabdh to good one.
Ashwatthama’s Prarabdh lead him to an immortal life, roam in forests with pain.
Bhishma strove hard throughout his life to protect Hastinapur in his quest of finding the legal heir of Sathyavati’s clan. Bhishma entrusted on Krishna this responsibility of finding the next heir of Sathyavati’s family and to continue the lineage of the Pandavas. Although, after Duryodhana’s defeat it appeared that Hastinapur was now safe, as it was clear that Yudhishthira was the next king of Hastinapur, Ashwatthama’s action brought an end to the Pandava line.
Lord Krishna then placed a curse on Ashwatthama(actually it was his Prarabdha karma) that “he will carry the burden of all people’s sins on his shoulders and will roam alone like a ghost without getting any love and courtesy till the end of Kaliyuga; He will have neither any hospitality nor any accommodation; He will be in total isolation from mankind and society; His body will suffer from a host of incurable diseases forming sores and ulcers that would never heal”.
Ashwatthama had a gem which was similar to Shamantakamani on his forehead which used to protect the wearer from fear of any snakes, ghosts, demigods and demons. So, Ashwatthama was asked to surrender this gem. Lord Sri Krishna further states that “the wound caused by the removal of this gem on his forehead will never heal and will suffer from leprosy, till the end of Kaliyuga”. It is believed that in Kaliyuga, his name will be “Suryakanta”. Thus, Ashwatthama will be in search of death every moment, and yet he will never die. At the end of Kali Yuga, Ashwatthama is to meet Sri Kalki, the tenth and final avatar of Lord Vishnu.
People ask whether Ashwatthaamaa is still alive or not? Other people tell many incidents of his being alive and seen in various forms. The purpose of this is not to prove that he is alive, but just to cite some incidents what people say about him.
If you don’t believe it, you may contact Dr Narayan Dutta Srimali’s disciples in Jodhpur, INDIA. They tell all these with evidence.
A more than a decade old newspaper article ran about a railway employee on leave. During his wanderings in the jungles of Navsari (Gujarat) he had reported a very tall man of about 12 feet with a wound on his head. He claimed to have conversation with him and learnt that Bheem was much taller and stronger than him.
The last record of his existence came to my notice while reading a book called “Himalaya kah raha hai” by Pilot Baba. you can also go to his website to read the excerpts. The temple where he stayed was washed away in the floods a few years back. His site is
When in 1192, Prithveeraaj Chauhaan lost the battle from Mohammad Gauree, he left for jungle. There he met one old person with a scar on his head. Being a very good doctor Prithveeraaj Chauhaan confidently asked him that he can cure his scar. The old man agreed. But even after week’s medication it remained as it is. Prithveeraaj was surprised and understood the details. He asked old man if he is Ashwatthaamaa. Because only the scars that is created through taking up the “MANI” the gem from forehead cannot be cured. The old man told that he was Ashwatthaamaa and then he went away. This description is given in “Prithviraj Raso” the book written in 12th century by him.
In late 14th, early 15th century there lived in Gadag, Karnaatak, a poor Braahman called Naranappa. Later, because of the Mahabharata epic “Karnata Bharata Kathamanjari” that he wrote in Kannada, he came to be called as Kumara Vyasa. His greatest desire was to write Mahaabhaarat based on original sources, and to this end he prayed day-in and day-out in the Temple of Veera Naaraayan, temple of Trikooteshwar. One day the Almighty decided to answer his prayers and appeared in his dream and said: “Attend the forthcoming Dwaadashee Paaran (Dwaadashee feast) in the Veera Naaraayan Temple. Watch out for one lone Braahman who would leave the feast the earliest. He is none other than Ashwathaamaa of MBH. Fall at his feast and ask him to narrate the MBH as it happened. You can record it in writing and claim your share of fame”.
Promptly Naranappa attended the following Dwaadashee Paaran at the Veera Naaraayan Temple, and then followed the Braahman who finished his feast the earliest and started walking out of the Temple. He approached him and fell at his feet saying, “Sir, I know who you are, you are the very same Ashwatthaamaa of MBH, please help me”. At this Ashwathaamaa was taken aback and asked him how do you know this? Naranappa responded saying “The Veera Naaraayan Swamy” appeared in his dream and told me so. Ashwatthaamaa was mightily pleased hearing this and asked Naranappa, OK, tell me what can I do for you. Naranappa responded saying he would like to write the Mahaabhaarat in Kannada as it happened.
To this Ashwatthaamaa agreed under two conditions. He said that Naranappa should start writing the Mahaabhaarat everyday after he finished his bath, wearing a wet Veshti (Dhotee). Ashwatthaamaa said – “You can keep writing till such time your Veshti is wet and the MBH would flow from your pen as it happened. The moment your clothes dry up, the flow would stop. He also put a condition that he should not disclose this secret to anyone failing which the flow would stop forever. Needless to say, our Naranappa, was immensely excited about the project, and he kept his secret till the time he reached the “Gadaa Parv” (the time when Duryodhan and Bheem fought the duel of the mace fight). At this moment it is believed that Ashwatthaamaa appeared before Naranappa and he was in tears — remembering his friend Duryodhan and the A-Dhaarmik (unjustified) way in which Bheem defeated Duryodhan. Naranappa overcome with excitement disclosed this secret to his wife, and his writing flow stopped immediately. That is why his Mahaabhaarat ends with Gadaa Parv only. Later someone might have added up from Vyaas’ MBH, but our Kumara Vyaas’s MBH ended only with Gadaa Parv.
The curse that “Ashwatthaamaa would roam the world carrying his own dead body, with people shunning him, and suffering the pain of the wound on his forehead from where the “Mani” was removed by force”, was for 3000 years. 3000 years since Mahabharata is now long passed, and I am sure, Ashwatthaamaa is there somewhere in the Himaalaya, performing Tapasyaa.
Dharmdev and Bhaktimaataa (father and mother of Bhagwan Swaminarayan) were cursed over two hundred years ago by Ashwatthaamaa – son of Drone. This is described in Satsangi Jivan written by Shatanand Muni – He was tall and well built robed in orange clothes as a Braaman. His head was strapped just above his eyebrows and he was covered with Bhasm (ash). He had big red eyes.
Mother Bhakti and father Dharm were on their way back from Vrindaavan where Shree Krishn proclaimed to them that there troubles in Chapaiyaa (village close to the banks of Sarayoo) would soon end after He himself would be born to them. On the way back one night (it took 28 days for them to get back to chapaiyaa village – the birthplace of Swaminarayan Bhagwan), as they walked through the forest they lost there way. They saw a tall Braahman roaming in the forest. They asked him for direction. The Braahman with a deep voice asked where they were coming from as they looked feared. Dharmdev explained that they were a Sarvariyaa Saam Vedee Braahman and his Kuldev was Hanumaan Jee and up on Hanumaan Jee’s advice at Hanumaan Garhee -Ayodhyaa (where Dharmdev did Tapascharyaa for 3 months) they went to Vrindaavan. Dharmdev further explained the whole incident as well as telling him how they had a revelation from Lord Krishn and Shreemati Raadhaaraanee in Vrindaavan. With this the Brahmin spoke with anger in his voice “Krishna my arch enemy? Will be born to you? I curse Him for the pain I have borne as of Him, that He as your son will never be able to bear weapons and neither shall he be able to fight in any war.”
Saying this he left pushing Dharmdev aside. Bhaktimata started trembling and crying. Just then Hanumaan Jee arrived to them once again and calmed them and showed them the way and told them that they need not fear as God does not need any weapon nor need to fight to rid evil and tyranny.
This incident shows that Ashwatthaamaa is still roaming in forests and jungles of India today. As this was just over 200 odd years ago. [4/6/2005]
My Father’s uncle was a famous (Vaidya) – Doctor in Ludhiana. He would spend hours meditating too. He was a Bhakt of Data Dayal, a well Known Guru in Panjaab (try to search for Data Dayal on net). One day as he was closing his shop in the after noon, it was summer time and everything was shut due to summers, in 1968-69, Ludhiaanaa, Panjaab, just then an old person came to him, whose face was covered and spoke to him in crude Panjaabee and Hindi mix, “Badaa naam sunaa hai teraa, bhaut badaa vaidya hai too? Ilaaj kar sakdaa hai meraa?
My father’s uncle said – “Tell me what the problem is?” and when he removed the Pagadee from his head, there was a dent on the forehead. He had never seen such a dent before, as if the brain was taken away from the fore front, yet the skin was tight as if nothing had happened. My dad’s uncle was a bit nervous but still said that he would like to have a second look at him. He said – “Tenu pataa hai main kaun hoon?” and my dad’s uncle said – “I think I know who you are but still let me get my stuff.” By the time he brings his stuff from the almirah, that man had left, never to be found again. But he said that his eyes always haunted him, He had blue eyes, which were so sharp as if he would walk inside his brain.
I have also heard from numerous people that others have spotted someone with a dent in the forehead roaming around the Narmadaa river (Gujaraat). He was described as tall person, and that there was tons of fly’s, bugs surrounding him all the time.
Man’s life is the crowning glory of the entire ‘creation’. Even the gods have made use of the gross in order to attain the supreme bliss or ‘ Bramha tatva ‘. and whenever the need has arisen Ishwar has also assumed human forms . Human life is that result of good sanskaras .
Since – times, immemorial, Himalayas has been the abode of great yogis, sages and Mahatamas.Thousands of years old, Saints, still live in the serene precincts of the lofty Himalayas. During my wanderings, I came across these lofty souls, fortunately I could spend some time in their gracious company and benifit from their wisdom. With my readers, I wish to share my rich experiences, so that they may also redesign the structure of life.
One day, I began the ‘ parikrama ‘ of the pious river Narmada,’Pahari Baba’ gave me company during the Parikrama of the holy river. There are interesting tales and myths about the river ‘Narmada’, which have enhanced its religious importance. After walking for some time we came across a dense forest, over grown, with ‘sulfan’ trees. The ‘Bhilas’ are native inhabitants of the forest. These tribals are not insignificant people, but have a long of history of notoriety which cannot be ignored. The tribals always looted the piligrims who happened to travel via the forests. But, whenever they spotted the gypsies they displayed an amazing dis – interest.
We were dressed only in our ‘Kopins’ when we entered the notorious forest. Some of the tribals spotted us and began to make strange noises. The noises were meant as a signal to invite the attention of their kins. All the noise and confusion could not deter us, and we continued to march ahead. Shortly, we surrounded by hordes of tribals who came towards us menacingly. We were carrying only two bundles which contained some Neem leaves and little, Vibhuti power.The tribals, roughly snatched our meagre belongings and eagerly opened the bundles. But, when they saw the strange contents, their Behaviour under went a remarkable change. After a hurried consultation in soft tones,they signalled us to follow them. We did ,as we were told, and very soon found ourselves in front of couple of hutments. We accepted their hospitality and went inside one of the huts. It’s interior was neat and orderly. First, they made us sit on mats made from dry leaves, and then they lit a ‘Dhuni”. They also gave us to eat a couple of grass chappatis with some fresh honey. We broke the chappatis in small pieces,mixed them with honey and offered to our gentle hosts. We,also ate some portion of their native meal. The tribals were very happy to have us amongst them. They built a small hut for us and collected fruits and edible roots for us to eat. The tribals looked after us with a rare devotion. Though they were considred wild, yet they had a discipline of their own. And no one ever dared to break the rules. Their obedience towards their chief was total. They never questioned his authority on the contrary they almost worshipped him. “Shiva” was their deity. In the morning they either looted unsuspecting passengers or hunted animals. Every morning and evening they came to us in hundreds and sat with apparent devotion.Sometimes, they danced the entire night in aspirit of gay abandon, But, surprisingly enough they celebrated their festival day without any activity. Generally, a majority of ‘Bhilas’ men and women covered their bodies in mat like pieces. These pieces were either made from dry leaves or bark of trees, still, there were some who preferred to dress in the stolen clothes.
One particular man, who came with the tribals, had a commanding disposition He was always dressed in yellow, and looked different from the other tribals. We wanted to talk to him, but before we could make any move, he used to walk away from our place.
One day, while we were resting in the premises of Sulpaneshwar Mahadeva Mandir, my eyes got locked into the eyes of that extraordinary being. He looked young and had an admirable height and long arms. He had a sharp moustache and his eyes had a fire like brilliance. He looked composed and had a celestial bearing. His forehead was covered by the characteristic yellow cloth. When I began, to whisper into ‘ PahariBaba’s ears about the ‘special’ ‘Bhila’ he gave a knowing smile and left that place. But my curiosity regarding the ‘Bhila’ was so overpowering, that I also got up from my place and began to follw him. When the tribals saw me following the magnificient figure, they also joined me. The ‘Bhila’ turned around and requested us to leave. Since I had reached quite close to him, I caught his feet and burst out beseechingly – “Who ever you are, I want your introduction, whether we are complete or incomplete, we look up to your guidance. Your lofty personality tells us that you do not belong to this age. With great humility I want to surrender my self at your feet. Please reveal your identity : I want to know whether my guess regrding your identity is right or wrong. The bhilas were infuriated at my act and began to protest,excitedly. The civilised looking ‘Bhila’ was their revered one and during the festival of ‘Shiva Ratri’ they worshipped him along with Lord Shiva.
The great Bhila gestured to the crowd to stop and then gathered me affectionately in his arms. He said, ” Kapil: I am Acharya Dronacharya’s son Ashwathama. I was the senapati ( the chief warrior) during the days of the historical Mahabarat. Those days have become a history, but , I still live in the past. This temple is my residence and these Bhilas are my companions. Once in a while I go to the Himalayas to meet ” Kripa Charya’ and Vidhur. But most of the times I involve myself in the activities of the tribemen. For us, time has become stand still , Ironically enough we are moving ahead of time common man is trying to keep pace with time, whereas with us the opposite phenomenon, is occuring, time is tyring to keep pace with us. Sulpaneshwar becomes a small Himalayas, whenever great souls like Kripa Charya and Vidhur visit this place. An occasional enounter with Gorakhnathji turns out ot be a blessing. In his company we evoke the past of ‘Bramhand’ and watched with rapt attention the Jeevas repeated cycles of birth and death. We are changeless. Life has come to terms with us and we have come to terms with life. We are well acquantied with ‘past”present’ and ‘future’. Though we are aware of the three states of ‘Time’ ‘past’ ‘present’ and future, we cannot do anything. This is because we are not what we used to be in the past”
When Ashwathama removed his head gear a bunch of unruly curls tumbled on his forehead. A strange light lurked in the deep wound mark which was in the centre of his impressive forehead. In a reflective mood Ashwathama again said ‘- ” Due to the appearance of this gem on my forehead all my war tactics and divine potential have come to an end. All these powers have foresaken me. But in return I have received the boon of immortality, which could not be taken away by Lord Krishna and Pandavas . Since then I have been living on the face of the earth. When I watch my contempories in the yonis of animals, birds and snakes I began to ponder the helpless dependence of ‘ man’. In the ‘ human yoni’ man in his ignorance does certain acts which force him to become birds and animals in the next birth. Consequently he is caught in the endless, vicious cycle of birth and death.
Since I am not entangled in this mesh, I have reached a level where ‘ time has become still. Even in the past I have never given guidance to anyone. So, in the present I am not inclined towards any guidance and sermons. Today, I am totally immersed in Shiva’s Aradhana and do not bother about anything else’.
We spent about six months in the company of the exalted being ‘ Ashwathama’. We used to go on long tours and move around as common men. During my stay, I discovered how a man who is thousands of years old can remain unaffected by the ways of the society in which he is living. In the company of the great soul how time flew away we did not know. One day the ‘great man’ blessed us, bade us farewell and disappeared. Before departing he uttered these words – you go ahead with your journey now. We were suppose to be together only for this alotted period.
After this brief interlude, we proceeded on the ‘Parikrama’ of the Narmada river. On the way we met a young saint who was also on the similar mission. One morning while we were having a dip in the river, a huge snake crept towards us. Our first reaction was to run away. Butr something held us back. When I looked into the eyes of the venomous snake, it cowered momentarily but his next move was totally unexpected. Instead of slithering away it came to us with a threatening speed and threw us out of gear. Pahari Baba sought refuge in the waters and the young saint picked a huge stone with intention of killing the snake. But before he could strike a alethal blow, the snake bit him. Dharmanand became unconscious and fell on the ground. The snake glided away to a distant rock and returned to his former watchful position.
Pahari Baba tried his best to revive the unconcious Dharmanand. But his efforts proved ineffective. In a fit of fury he rushed to kill the snake. The snake remained unmoved by the menacing form of ‘Pahari Baba’ And, before Pahari Baba could crush it,it transformed into an aged saint. the old man with folded hands began ” Pahari Baba spit your anger. I am none other than Awadhoot Baba- I belong to Varmdeshwar – I for the last twenty five years, I have been waiting for “Dharmanand” . Finally, today my patient waiting has borne fruit. Now Dharmanand is liberated from his crimes. Hence onwards he can wander in the state. I request you not to take any action in this matter because every thing will be futile”. With these revealing words the old man once again returned to the guise of snake and hid itself amidst the cluster of stones.
I tried my best to dissuade,Pahari Baba from taking Dharmanand’s unconscious form to the other side of the river, but all my pleas fell on deaf ears. Pahari Baba lowered Dharmanand in a boat and rowed him across the river. By this act he unknowingly broke his ‘Parikrama’. The doctors tried their best to save Dharmanand’s life, but failed. Even Pahari Baba’s indigineous methods could not bring Dharmanand back to life. All these days, while I awaited Pahari Baba’s return, Avadhoot Baba brought food for me.
One afternoon, while we were basking in the sun, Avadhoot Baba spotted the floating corpse of Dharmanand. Overcome with excitement, he discarded the body of the snake and entered the physical form of Dharmanand. But before leaving he told me to throw the snakes body in the water since it was no longer useful to him, I did as I was told.
Pahari Baba was dumb founded, he simply blinked with disbelief to see dead Dharmanand coming out of the waters. When Pahari Baba looked at me inquiringly I told him about Avdhoot Baba and how he had made use of Dharmanand’s body. Dharmanand’s episode had broken Pahari Baba’s Parikrama. So, there was no choice left but to go on seperate paths,because I still had to finish my parikrama.
Since the time dumbest politician of India, Rahul Gandhi, ignored islamic terrorism as real problem- it was known that congress will play this dirty card again.
Compiled from Wikileaks Excerpts:
Anti-national congress Party heir Rahul Gandhi feels that the “the bigger threat (to India) may be the growth of radicalized Hindu groups, which create religious tensions and political confrontations..,” according to a cable by U.S ambassador to India Timothy Roemer. Rahul Gandhi is more pro-active in stopping Hindu extremists but not in halting fanatic muslims who have proven track record of making more than 2000 bomb balsts killing thousands of Indian since 1947.
Belittling terror threat of lashkar-e-Taiba, dumbo Raul Vinci (rahul gandhi) made above statement in response to Roermer’s query about Lashkar-e-Taiba’s activities in the region and immediate threat to India, that “there was evidence of some support for the group among certain elements in India’s indigenous Muslim community.” However, the risk of a “home-grown” extremist front, reacting to terror attacks coming from Pakistan or from Islamist groups in India, was a growing concern and one that demanded constant attention.
This is same insane person rahul gandhi whose true patriotism and religion itself is in question; his italian passport shows his name as Raul Vinci a christian so this person rahul gandhi has two religion Hinduism and Christianity has two names and dual citizenship what a shame…and congress is making him PM candidate of India. We are spitting on the patriotism and sacrifice of the freedom fighters like Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, Veer Savarkar and Rajguru by silently acknowledging congress tactics of making India anti-hindu state while posing confused brat rahul gandhi as future PM.
The series of recent incidents is fully planned -
(1) Nov 26..celebration of mumbai 26/11 blast anniversary in pakistan
(2) Dec 22-27… akbaruddin owaisi abusing Hindus and Hindu Gods and asking muslims to kill Hindus
(3) Jan 1st week…Beheading of two Hindu patriots – (Indian) soldiers by pakistan
(4) Jan 2nd week…Salman khurshid (who appeared for free as an advocate for terrorist organisation SIMI – mastermind of several bomb blasts in mumbai, gujarat and hyderabad; making statement peace process should not be derailed making claim that pakistan people are non-supportive to terrorism (as if he is pakistan foreign minister)
(5) Jan 3rd week…Congress making false proganda that BJP and RSS organize terror camps.
(6) Next will be banning and maligning BJP and RSS so that Narendra Modi, a forefront leader of developing state Gujarat, is not promoted as PM in 2014 and internationally BJP is pressurized too
Congress knows that BJP will surely come to power in 2014 since congress siphoned off billions of dollars, robbing Indian citizens.
And in terms of rural development; there is nothing but rather rise in death of farmers. For common people too congress gave nothing but inflation due to enormous mis-use of public wealth.
Hijra Sushil Kumar Shinde yet again proved that he is Slave of Terrorist Pakistan. He was deaf, blind and dumb when it came to speaking strongly on akbaruddin owaisi’s anti-hindu statements. Shinde became handicapped when pakistan beheaded two patriot Indian soldiers; not even uttering single word against pakistan in media or world forum.
But when it comes to spreading hatred and appeasing muslim terrorists; he can go to any extreme and mark patriot organisations like RSS and BJP as source of organizing terrors. Even naive citizen living in this country knows that this is false propaganda.
BJP and RSS are same patriots who first come forward whenever natural calamity strikes in any part of the country. They pray to their motherland, chant Vande Mataram in their party or organisation functions. HOW CAN THEY BE SOURCE OF TERROR ??
What can you expect from a country which is ruled by islam centric congress people who support islamic terrorism.
Take note of this:
1) Digvijay calls Osama as Osamaji and attends condolence meeting organized by muslim organisation on Osama’s death
2) Sushil Kumar Shinde – a Hijra home minister- calls a terrorist Hafiz Saeed (master mind of mumbai 26/11 blasts) as Hafizji and Shri Saeed
3) Salman Khurshid – Muslim mindset foreign minister – is a staunch supporter of SIMI (muslim terrorist outfit who were behind several serial blasts in India and still operational) and the same Saman Khurshid appeared as an advocate for SIMI in all their court cases; voluntarily and for free- without charging any fees.
The way congress is ruling India. India is labelled as soft, coward and shameless state by international and especially islamic media the world over. That’s why in foreign countries, Indians are ill-behaved and treated to lower valour of dignity even when compared to third world countrymen. Congress knows that BJP will surely come to power in 2014 and now the anti-national party congress will do anything to regain power by spreading hatred between Hindus and muslims.
It is well known fact that Samajwadi and Congress party get millions of dollars of funds from middle-east countries to prepare muslim appeasing policies and be lenient against muslim terrorists. That’s the reason that even Kasab died an untimely death due to dengue and congress was caught pants down and they had to announce it’s hanging the next day to save their face.
In parliament attack several innocent defense personnels were killed by terrorists. Congress is not keen on hanging terrorist Afzal Guru (parliament attacker) as they are under pressure of loads of donation they got from muslim countries.
Hindus AWAKE and become united. Rise to the occasion and only vote for the party and people who support Hinduism, think about Hindus and vye for cow protection; abolishing cow killing in India completely.
If you will not rise now; then your future generation and kids will be in a state which will treat Hindus as second grade citizen as Hindus are treated in pakistan today.
Hindus should be aggressive and violent when it comes to saving their culture and religion. Hindu Sabal toh Bharat Safal.
Mahakumbh mela is the only place in the world where 84 crore Gods take bath on makar skranti and other auspicious days. They also take human forms to get the blessings of Lord Narayana, Lord Shiva and Lord Brahma.
The Maha Kumbh Mela 2013 is in Allahabad (Prayag) in the year 2013, from 27th of January to 25th of February.
According to Vedic Script, holy dip in sacred river during Maha Kumbh or Ardh Kumbh takes human out of the circle of life & death (also called as Moksha or salvation). Over 1 crore bhakts took holy dip on first day, 14th Jan 2013 in prayag.

Main Bathing Date For 2013 Allahabad Kumbhmela: 10th February 2013
The place becomes pious due to presence of real bhakts who renounced their wealth, near and dear ones. The mela has an aura that emits highest level of positive atmosphere due to presence of Sadhus, Sages and Saints.
Remember Sadhus who remain in secluded place, far away from the material world and residents of this world are only Siddh Sadhus and Mahakumbh is the only chance to actually meet them. Its is these Sadhus due to whom the earth is balanced and Bharat desh (India) has some amount of piousness left; which will gradually degrade as Kaliyuga surpasses its age. Hindus should stay away from fake saints who call themselves as living God. You should also take note of this fact that God only takes avatar as mentioned in Vedic Scripts. They never come in the body as devi or deva and never take birth they are Ajanma (unborn) since taking birth is a phase for human and other living beings to pass on to 84 lakh cycles of death/birth. So Beware and do not fall prey to fake saints
Bathing Ghats in Kumbh Mela
Bathing in the holy river on the auspicious occasion of Kumbh Mela is the most important activity for millions of people in India. A large tented city is erected and pilgrims stay at tents owned by Pandas (religious and spiritual guides) and at various ashrams. Others will just camp on the ground or turn up for the actual bathing day. Some of these bathing days are designated “royal,” and it is on these days that the naga sadhus (naked mendicants) parade and bathe. On other days there will still be people bathing and other events and random processions.
Bathing Ghats in Haridwar
Har ki Pauri
This sacred Ghat was constructed by King Vikramaditya in memory of his brother Bhartrihari. It is believed that Bhartrihari eventually came to Haridwar to meditate by the banks of holy Ganga. When he died, his brother constructed a Ghat in his name which later came to be known as Har-Ki-Pauri. This sacred bathing ghat is also known as Brahmakund Ghat. Vikramaditya remains an enigma; some historians date his reign to 57 BC, others to the sixth century AD. The reflection of golden hues of floral diyas in the river Ganga is the most enchanting sight in the twilight during the Ganga Aarti ceremony.
Immediately south of the main Ganga temple is the Asthi Prawah Ghat, where the ashes of the dead are immersed in the Ganga, in the belief that as with the 60,000 sons of Sanger, the cooling waters of the river will bestow salvation upon the departed soul.
Subhash Ghat, with a statue of the freedom fighter Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, is adjacent to Har-Ki-Pauri. The Sewa Samiti, another voluntary organization, runs a dispensary here and also assists pilgrims.
South of Subhash Ghat is Gau Ghat, where people seek atonement for the sin of cow-slaughter (gau means cow). The unique veneration of cow in India goes back 3500 years. The cow was “Kamadhenu”, the fulfiller of desires, and a cherished item of wealth. Death ceremonies were completed with the pious act of donating a cow. The sin of killing a cow is “equal to the sin of killing a Brahmin”.

References can be found about the significance of this ritual in Varaha Purana and Matsya Purana as well. There is a belief that the ashram of the learned Bharadvaja, where Lord Ram, Laxman and Sita lived at the time of their exile, was situated at Sangam. It is said that a number of saints including the great Shankaracharya and Chaitanya Mahaprabhu visited Sangam and observed the Kumbh Mela. The great Indian epics such the Ramayana and Mahabharata have mentioned that a yagna was conducted by Lord Brahma at Sangam.
Sacred Bath in Kumbh Mela
Bathing in the holy river on the auspicious occasion of Kumbh Mela is the most important activity for millions of people in India. A large tented city is erected and pilgrims stay at tents owned by Pandas (religious and spiritual guides) and at various ashrams. Others will just camp on the ground or turn up for the actual bathing day. Some of these bathing days are designated “royal,” and it is on these days that the naga sadhus (naked mendicants) parade and bathe. On other days there will still be people bathing and other events and random processions.
Rituals Performed at the Kumbh Mela
The main ritual performed at that Kumbh Mela is the ritual bath. Hindus believe that submerging themselves in the sacred waters on the most auspicious day of the new moon will absolve them and their ancestors of sin, thus ending the cycle of rebirth. Pilgrims start lining up to bathe from around 3 a.m. on this day.
As the sun comes up, the different groups of sadhus move in procession towards the river to bathe. The Nagas usually lead, while each group tries to outdo the others with more grandeur and fanfare. The moment is magical, and everyone is absorbed in it.
After bathing, the pilgrims wear fresh clothes and proceed to worship by the river bank. They then walk around listening to discourses from the various sadhus.

History and Legend of Kumbha Mela
Kumbh Mela is considered as the most auspicious period of India. The origin of Kumbh Mela dates back to the time when Gods (Devtas) and Demons (Asura) resided on earth. Devtas were under the influence of a curse which aroused fear in them eventually making them weak and coward. Brahma (the creator) advised them to churn the milky ocean to obtain the elixir of immortality. The Mandara Mountain acted as the churning rod and Vasuki (king of serpents) was used as a rope for churning. Kumbh was the pot which consist the nectar of immortality and was recovered from Samudramanthan.
Devtas asked the help of demons for this sturdy task to complete with mutual agreement of sharing the elixir of immortality equally. They churned the ocean for 1000 years, where demons were holding Vasuki’s head and Gods were holding its tail. Finally after this entire churning process, Dhanwantari appeared with Kumbh containing amrita (immortality potion) in his palms. Some Asuras (atheists) snatch this Kumbh (pot of amrita) and began running away to make themselves and Asuras eternally immortal.
Vedic scripts tells us that Demons were chased by Gods for 12 days and nights when the drops of amrita fell down from Kumbh at Allahabad, Haridwar, Nasik and Ujjain. In Puranas, it is mentioned that the war between Gods and Demons in the sky lasted for twelve days for the possession of Amrita. To commemorate this holy event Maha Kumbh Mela is celebrated in every twelve years at the four sacred places where the drops from Kumbh were fallen. These 12 days of Gods are equivalent to 12 years of Humans. During this chase for the elixir of immortality the drops from Kumbh fell at four places – Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain and Nasik.
It is believed that the river turns itself into sanctity spots filled with primordial amrita at the historic moment of the Maha Kumbh Mela. The pilgrims get once in a lifetime chance to bathe in the spirit of holiness, auspiciousness and salvation. People who are very fortunate are able to take holy dip in the Kumbh mela.
This SOB is famous for giving anti-hindu and anti-india speeches. Never wanted to upload any post Video of this son of a pig..but the Video really fills Hindu heart with anger
Hindus should stage protest against biasedness of Media and congress govt.
Modi, Varun Gandhi or Pravin Tagodia never made any hate speech against muslims or ridiculing their religion but here this SOB made such atrocious comments and still no media coverage and bashing by govt congress. WHY IS HE STILL MLA???
This further proves that religion which is based on COPY PASTE patches of just 1% OF Vedic texts is not correct religion, as we see from its followers. A religion which is just 1500 years old cannot be path to salvation. Pity on such filthy souls.
Hindus get united and vote for those people who support Vedic principles and protect Cow (gau mata).
Each Hindu should become Narsimha and Kill such filthy anti-Hindu people as Hiranyakashyap was killed by Lord Narsimha.

Is Kali Yuga Real?
Human beings in kali yuga would think that they are very intelligent and encircled in their self-egoistic box they will ask for proof on knowledge passed on to them by their elders and ancestors. The worst kind of ages of kali yuga would find lack of proofs too. This is golden period so after some research you can find the answer to your apprehensions. The post is created after doing some deep research on the proofs of Kali Yuga; discarding several others and selecting only one which matches perfectly with at least one of the most highlighted aspect of Kali Yuga. Also its good to provide proof that is simple, easy to explain, comprehensible for better understanding.
The negative impact of Kali Yuga influence people of earth (mrityulok) with lust, greed, pride, enviousness, dvesh and wealth. People having any of these traits can never remain happy or satisfied even if given the post of Indra – Atharva Veda
Recent situation seen in the world is due to Kaliyuga (prabhav) impact and no one can escape it, but only when they get blessed with merciness of Lord Krishna.
Like other posts, before writing this post, I did research on finding proof whether the kaliyuga occurred and if proof exists after lapse of millions of years, then by cross-checking can we make today’s people aware that future would be more graver and its high time they elevate their consciousness and social values.
While deep dwelling into various research conducted by Vedic scholars and pseudo-scholars of western thought, I came across a book called technology of gods, now the writer of this book does not know about four yugas: satya yuga, treta yuga, dwapar yuga and kaliyuga. But one particular reference on finding a mummy, millions of years old, got my attention, which asserts that kaliyuga indeed happened.
Its clearly mentioned in Srimad Bhagwat Puran, Garud Puran and other Vedic texts that at the end of Kali Yuga, the average size of human beings would be around 1 foot, average age would be maximum 12 years. The decline in height and age starts after satyuga then average human height was 32 feet and age lacs of years with wishful death – no illness or ailments of body.
The strong proof of kaliyuga man was found in Pedro Mountain. The mummy of the man was only 1 foot tall featuring all human parts miniaturized in 1 foot body frame.
To further check whether the mummy of a yogi in a samadhi (anyone can know this by his sitting pose and dhyan mudra). The museum conducted an X ray test whether it is really a mummified human form. They were surprised to know that the inner skeleton had entire body with joints and bone frames that normal human body has.
The X ray of the person found in mummified form is given below
The features of the body matches perfectly as described in Vedic puranas. Head will be big with small memory lobes but bigger eyes, nose and ears. Other posture will be equivalent to the size of the body and such kaliyugi people will take shelter under chick peas trees. Even today great sages who follow Vedic rituals take samadhi in caves to renounce the thin line between life and death. The mummified yogi was found from a small cave where he was taking samadhi.
The scientists were wrong to determine the age since they identified the age based on the condition of the body, they judged it to be of 65 years but according to the Vedic text such people died at around 12 years so ideally the age of this person would be around 12 years. Vedic texts suggest that just like decline in height the age also declined correspondingly in kali yuga. And this logic seems to be correct since you cannot expect a person of such height to sustain climatic turmoils and deteriorating living conditions of the world in last stages of Kali Yuga. Mother earth (maa parvati controls it as per Shiva Puran) would be at its worst condition in last stages of Kali Yuga.
The below snapshot is actual excerpt from the book technology of gods.
The yogi who was practicing samadhi and whose mummy was found in 1932, might be one of the rarest person on the earth of his time. Because taking even god’s name once in a day can liberate you in last stages of Kali Yuga; since everyone will stop believing in god – irrespective of the religion. And this (mummified) yogi was actually performing samadhi or dhyan. And today even after his death millions of years ago, he proved that Vedic texts are true. Such is the impact of pious soul who immerse in Krishna’s dhyan.
There is no doubt that Vedic texts always stood time immortal which can be proved by simple research. There are many other proofs too on all the four yugas which will be covered on the next posts.
So if you want to renounce the cycle of birth and death; then surrender to Lord Krishna or face the wrath of last stages of kali yuga. This is not to make you believe Bihari ji but to get you closer to the real facts.
In future posts, we will see the accounts of historians of Alexander, Goliath, Caesar, Cleopatra covering several incidents on how their ego was reduced to nothing by the mystical power of ancient Indians and people who followed their wisdom.
