India

A land of colours and contrasts

Taj Mahal, Uttar Pradesh, India

Since Siddhartha’s Journey to The East, seekers of truth have traveled India. In the 1960’s hippies called India home hanging out in this tropical paradise. Today the hippy hangouts have become fashionable and affordable holiday resorts with services and amenities to rival any in the English speaking world. For the modern visitor, India may be a place of learning, or a fantastic and affordable holiday destination.

History

India has a rich history, it has been invaded by successive armies including the Mongols to Alexander (the not so Great) and then the British, but India has survived them all. Kings and Maharajah’s have ruled, the British left their

A Cronology of Hindu History

Re-Writing the narrative from emerging discoveries

Like many people seeking to know the truth of our existence I have questioned the historic narrative handed down to us through various governmental agencies tainted by religious and other belief systems. It comes down to a question of believing what might be true without evidence and seeking to find out what is true based on tangible evidence.

The Western, patriarchal capitalist point of view dominates the world and anyone would have to be pretty stupid to not see that the associated political structures are rotten to the core. They say nice things but do dastardly deeds in the name of power and profits. Conversely in the east and by East I mean east

Ghandi

Love him or hate him?

Most commonly known as Mahatma Gandhi, this iconic man is seen by some as the father of modern India and by others as a traitor to India. This post is in response to the more scathing comments circulating in the social media that just don’t go away.

And looking at is life and the consequences of it one must remember that he was educated according to British indoctrination. Like so many Hindus of the time, he may not have questioned the British idea of an Aryan invasion lifting the intellect and capacity of Hindus to participate in a modern world.

With his further education in London, the British narrative probably became more ingrained within

26000 YO Vishnu Idol

An ancient mystery

It is generally thought that the first gold manufacturing took place around 7000 BC in the vicinity of the Black sea. While we are discovering that Hindu culture indeed extends back to this time the claim regarding this discovery turns history even more on its head.

The following article is from ajitvadakayil.blogspot and it also appears on many other websites. It is generally thought that gold was worked before copper and bronze but you can do further research and decide for yourself.

The narrative – italics mine:

A heavy chest containing a 47 gram metal alloy idol was given to CIA officials for safekeeping at Lo Monthang (called “Mustang, northern Nepal” in

Revising the Official Hindu History

An urgent need for the well-being of ALL nations

Most people consider that it’s important to know one’s past and to know one’s ancestry because that knowledge provides insights into one’s nature from which we can more clearly determine our reason for being and place in the universe.

Without knowing one’s history, any individual is left in a kind of vacuum, a state of limbo of not knowing. In our recent past the archaeological and historical explorers conjectured that modern humans developed independently in different regions. The Africans in Africa, the Asians in Asia and the Europeans in Europe as independent human species that next giving rise to the variety of peoples in the world today.

This theory was then

Lord Ram in Mesopotamia

Proving the antiquity of Hindu Civilisation

The Ramayana is one of India’s epic books and lord Rama, a man known for his honour, faith and tenacity has been suggestively and now proven falsely dated by scholars’ to anywhere between the 7th to 4th centuries BCE. Some even attempt a date even as late as the 3rd century CE based loosely on interpretations of texts and archaeology, but there is steadily growing evidence calling these suppositions into question.

Modern researchers are learning a controversial and more accurate history, that Hindu history is far older with the Mahabharata now dated to around 6000 BC which provides context for regional travel, trade and further dating of the Hindu narrative as

India Begat Egypt

Tracing our ancient origins

In the first of the BBC programs on the history of Egypt narrated by Bettany Hughes, the film opens with her describing a large block of what looked like just a big block of sandstone. Bethany describes as rock as an original depiction of a bull created around 5000 BC. This is at the time when the Sahara was beginning to dry out a second time, previously it had dried around 8000 BC so that time (by thousand BC) the Kiffian people may have migrated to the Nile Valley and mixed (or been absorbed into) with the more dominant African culture prevalent through Sudan and Ethiopia.

For me

Hinduism and Economic Development in India

A conflict of knowledge and wilfulness

A discussion on a paper by by A.K. Saran:

If we look at the evolution of economic development in India over the past millennia, some may say it is playing catch up to the west and as of 2019, it is not only catching up but taking over. This is providing positive outcomes for some and further impoverishing others because that’s the nature of capitalism.

When we look at the Hindu political and economic sphere today, it seems to be operating an accord to an extract from the article ‘Hinduism and économic Development in India‘ by A.K. Saran who says: “The sociological problem of India’s economic development is

Hindu Economics

And the art of civilisation

Hindu civilisation in India preceded the ancient civilisations of Egypt, Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome However the further one travels from India, the weaker its influence and modern humanity more corrupted.

The purpose of this paper is to describe the evolution of money, capitalism and its influence on not only Hindu culture, but on global civilisation.

Introduction

The word Hinduism is a misnomer coined by invaders as a derivation on Hindustan reflecting a failure to grasp the significance of the Hindu way of life although it may be more accurate to say that Hinduism is a term given as part of the effort to break the spirit of India by the most recent invaders, the

Ancient India

A legacy the world is awakening to

There is an old saying that the truth will set you free yet in today’s modern corporate controlled world, truth has become a commodity determined by someone else for political and economic gain.

While some people invest a great deal of effort into determining the truth of what someone in the modern world may have or may not have said or done, the truth of our past is more important because it shapes who we are today.

It is abundantly clear that we reap as we sow or to express it more crudely, he who lives by the sword generally dies by the sword. The ancient wisdom originating in India advises that to

Korea and India Linked

By the sciences of Hinduism and Buddhism

The idea that Hinduism and Buddhism represent a scientific approach to living may be foreign to some but it’s helpful to remember that once when Europeans were still cave dwellers and hunter gatherers, India represented the world’s leading civilisation with a wide global influence.

It is conclusively known that Hindus were sailing the world in 5000 BC and perhaps for many millennia before that. These connections to our ancient past being validated by archaeological and genetic evidence. It’s well known that Hinduism flourished across Southeast Asia and eventually gave rise to the city of Angkor Wat in Cambodia yet even today Hindu iconography and traditions are vibrantly alive across the parts of Southeast
