Thinking about Democracy

A noble sentiment that has failed

Most of us were taught in school that democracy was a Greek idea adopted by the civilised world but is this really true? To understand the principle of democracy we need to step back to the first hunter gatherer humanoids to walk the planet, but it’s helpful to begin looking at animal groups.

Within the species that hunt and feed off other animals, they tend to be more solitary although they do congregate more closely when food is abundant. In the instance of lions, their society is matriarchal although while they are ruled over by a male, is typically the oldest female that makes the most important decisions and the rest of the pride

India In The World

A nation re-emerging

“India is perhaps the most creative civilization in the history of the world and has been so for thousands of years. To begin with, Indic or Bharatiya culture embraces all aspects of art, from poetry, drama and literature to sculpture, painting and architecture, music and dance, and each in a wondrous variety of forms, modes and applications. India has never suffered from the devastating cultural split between the sacred and the profane that has long shadowed over Christianity and Islam, which have often limited or even denied representational art and evocative music forms as unsacred, and which still provokes intolerance leading to violence.” ~ David Frawley, American Thinker & Author.

“It is true that even across the

The Bhagavad Gita

An extract from the worlds greatest book; The Maharbarata

Arjuna seeking answers from Lord Krishna

The Bhagavad Gita (भगवद्गीता)(often referred to as ‘the Gita’) translates as “Song of the Lord” – Gita means song and Bhagavad means God. It is an eternal message of spiritual wisdom from ancient India and a 700 verse extract from the Hindu epic scripture; The Mahabharata (chapters 23–40).

The conversation takes place as Arjuna faces his duty as a warrior to fight the Dharma Yudhha,

The New Face of Sexism

The perverse logic that women are always right

Youtube image

After an incident on June 6, 2016 a man was later convicted (march 2018) in Belgium of sexism in a public place for the first time sparking fresh debate about sexism and a call for similar new laws in other countries.

Before jumping in, lets remember that sexism or gender discrimination is a prejudice or discrimination based on a person’s sex or gender but it mostly pertains to control, contempt, negativity or hostility towards women and girls. According to Belgium law, sexism is defined as “every gesture or deed” that is “clearly meant to express contempt of a person based on sex,” or considers a person inferior based on

Linguistic origins of Sanskrit

The worlds oldest language

Unfortunately the world in general does not have much idea of Origins or nature of Sanskrit. Sanskrit can never ever be dead. It is a natural language for higher beings and you can form thousand words for just one idea you want to communicate. So it is not a normal language in linguistic sense. This is the only language that has almost 100 words for all key concepts human beings can express. Sanskrit is not only a linguistic system, that is unique and has no comparison with any other living language but it is an original source of all acquired knowledge of terrestrial and non-terrestrial sources whose scope is dimensions not known to modern human senses.

We Are What We Eat

Foods support us or weaken us

Sanskrit has three very key words that are critically important and must be understood to better support our lives and to know the attributes or Gunas of any phenomenon. Today we briefly overview foods from an enlightened perspective which are classified as Satvic, Rajasic and Tamasic.

Defining the Creative Force

How different religions and ideologies define the Creative Force – aka God

Religions-of-the-world By Tsuyoshi Nagano

ब्रह्मैवेदममृतं पुरस्तात् ब्रह्म पश्चात् ब्रह्म उत्तरतो दक्षिणतश्चोत्तरेण । अधश्चोर्ध्वं च प्रसृतं ब्रह्मैवेदं विश्वमिदं वरिष्ठम् ॥ 2.2.11. Translated it says: I am in the east, the west, I am above [North] and below [South], I am this entire Cosmos as recorded in VEDIC Scripture from a time when there were no organized religions.

But what all religions that came much later say: “God is omnipresent (present in all particles) in it’s un-manifest aspect & is always present all around us. This omnipresent God consists of knowledge & knows everything about this whole world & also knows about all the people

Women within Islam

The myth of social equity under Islam

The Quran says that men and women will be judged by Allah. This does not mean that they have equal rights and roles, or that they are judged by the same standards. There is no ambiguity in the Quran, the life of Muhammad, or Islamic law as to the inferiority of women to men, despite the effort of modern-day apologists to salvage Western-style feminism from scraps and fragments of verses that have historically yielded no such progressive interpretation.

After military conquests, Muhammad would dole out captured women as war booties or prizes to his men. In at least one case, he advocated that they be raped in front of their husbands. Captured women
