The remarkably unbiased documentary by Paul Roberts on the Mahabharata and the history of India and spiritual concepts is well worth taking time to watch.
It shows India in context with the least predudice and
Malika Sarabhai in my opinion accurately describes that Baratha means mankind because everyone
of us originally came from India and that the Mahabharata is the story of greater India and the original man.
It is suggested the Mahabharata is dated to fourteen thousand years ago, a
reasonable date as Shiva the first yogi lived about or before this time. As
his teachings spread, wisdom spread and Dharma was born.
The five brothers of the epic Mahabharata are; Yudhishthira, Bhima, Arjuna,
Nakula and Sahadeva. They were the acknowledged sons of Pandu, the king of
Hastinapur and his two wives Kunti and Madri. The five brothers shared a wife
named Draupadi. In the Kurukshetra war, the Pandavas fought against the Kauravas (Duryodhana and his brothers)
who were their cousins and this was known as Kurukshetra War described in the
Bhagavad Gita. The Pandavas win the war and the Kauravas lose.
The claim that climate change drove people deeper in India are only partially right as groups also migrated west. The idea of Aryan groups blending into the local population is more about small groups of traders and plunderers.
In my opinion, shiva that is not the symbol of creation and destruction but rather the potentiality that gives rise to creation and to where we all return.
Dharma is living in accord with nature to give the best outcome for our species, But more importantly it provides the stable ground for the appreciation of actual spiritual science that enables all to participate.
In light of all the evidence becoming available, there is no doubt that India should be central to the world's educational systems.
