#Hinduism through the evil eyes of #LeftHistorians.

First of all, there is no such religion as #Hinduism. This name was coined by Britishers.

In this Thread, I’ve tried to bust the lies of #Communist Historians to malign the Sanatana Dharma using facts and evidences.

(1/21) ImageImage
🔸Our philosophy is 5000+ years old and is about the universal truth - Sanatana Dharma that all mankind should aspire for.

It is the oldest religion in the World.

The #Sanatanis have never been a proselytising race. #PanditNehru went on record to admit this.

It has existed from Ancient times, even before the advent of proselytising religions (#Buddhism, #Christianity and #Islam).

Unfortunately, we have always been taught the #Left version of History. which has always been Delhi-centric and anti-Sanatani.

After the thread on interesting creatures and HP=Krishna, i am back with another lockdown story fr ur kids. Can we imagine a story where Harry Potter universe was influenced by Ramayana too? As i was reading i did find some authors had already worked on this –

There are many more than what i hv mentioned.

IF you think Horcruxes and such cool stuff existed only in HP universe – have some news for you

Raavana = Voldemort??

Both excellent students.
Both had multiple lives – Voldemort broke his soul into 7 horcruxes while Raavana had 10 heads and multiple lives.

Only an insecure citizen will vilify a period of history, as rich and complex as #Mughal rule.

This demonstrates a vacuum of confidence and an inherent inadequacy in their own ability, to accept or understand the dynamics that created modern #India.

A #thread on the #Mughals:
1. The #Mughals, as they are erroneously called, were descended from Temur (aka Tamberlane, Tamerlane), in a direct patrilineal line and from Chengiz Khan in a direct matrilineal line.

They identified themselves with their Timurid heritage.
2. Babur, like all Mughals felt a legitimate claim on Hindustan after its conquest in 1398-99, by Temür, which effectively ended the already tottering Tughlaq Sultanate, following the fall of Delhi.
Not until 1451 and the rise of the Lodis (under Bahlul Khan), did Delhi recover.

@pbhushan1 @PrakashJavdekar

Justice Bhushan to Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave: "Mr Dave, anybody can watch anything on TV. How can you say people cannot watch this and that ?"

Dave: "No we are not on people watching something on TV. But we are on FIR"

Good morning..
I was talking to a friend of mine who was sharing how her 12 yr old is hooked on to Harry Potter books and will not let it go. I asked whether she has given her child Ramayana and Indian books – n she replied that ‘My kid does not find it very interesting!’
I was shocked. Why are our kids not reading our books but are fixated with Western fantasy epics.
1. All have the central ‘Good vs Evil’ theme. Hero’s journey with challenges until he defeats the evil villian.
2. All are rich in characters..

#harrypotter #hinduepics
Is it due to the fact that our books lack the mystical characters of Harry Potter that draws the kids to it? Maybe the characters in Ramayan and Hindu dharma have not been interpreted in vivid details to fascinate the youngsters.

Today I have brought a thread On The several dwipa(continents) mentioned in our ancient historical texts(#Mahabharat,#Ramayana purana etc ).The Puranic period was divided into Seven dwipas(continents).
They are described below👇
1. Jambu Dwipa: (almost present day Asia).. ..(1)
.. The name Jambu Dwipa has been derived from the Jambu (#Indian Blackberry) tree. Acc. to some of the ancient Indian scholars,it embraces the whole of the Northern Hemisphere,lying to the north of Salt Sea .Jambu Dwipa is surrounded by the Salt
Ocean ... (2)
.. & lies in the heart of the concentric sequence of the dwipas.This dwipa is further divided into sub-regions called varsas (Realms/zone)-the dwelling seats of rishis (observers). iLavrila (Pamir region) is the central varsa (realm) & the Meru (Pamir),...(3)

The #UttarRamayan, derived from Uttar Kand, containing story of Luv Kush is an addition to the #Valmiki Ramayan at a later date. Valmiki's last chapter is Yuddha Kanda or Lanka Kanda. Source : A comparitive study of Kamba Ramayan and Tulasi Ramayan by S Shankar Raju.
In the first few minutes of #UttarRamayan, #RamanandSagar clarified that pressure from #Valmiki samaj and discussions in Indian Parliament led to his acceptance of public demand to continue the serial with Lav Kush angle. #Ramayana
As such #UttarRamayan on @DDNational should be seen only for entertainment purposes. Do not judge the character of #ShriRam with the events that unfold in the serial. Leave it there.

आज आप सबको शूर्पणखा की कथा सुनाता हूं।
पुराणो के अनुसार
#Ramayan #Ramayana #RamayanOnDDNational
रावण और कुम्भकर्ण कैकसी और विश्रवा के पुत्र थे।विभीषण के पिता विश्रवा थे, माता कोई और थी। शूर्पणखा रावण और कुम्भकर्ण की सगी और विभीषण की सौतेली बहन थी।
(प्रत्येक रामायण के अनुसार)
युवावस्था में रावण कुम्भकर्ण और विभीषण ने ब्रह्मा की तपस्या कर विभिन्न वरदान प्राप्त किये।रावण ने कुबेर को हराकर लंका जीती और कई पूर्व राक्षस साम्राज्यों का विनाश किया।

#RamayanaFunFact--A little on how the critical edition works.

Valmiki's text is fluid, meaning there are many different versions. To aid researchers and reconstruct the development of the #Ramayana to the extent possible, a critical edition was produced in the mid-20th century.
The critical edition used hundreds of manuscripts, from various regional traditions, written in different regional scripts. The main text (top, above line) reconstructs the oldest possible text. Then additions and variants are put in the notes, which fill most of every page. Image
If you look at the notes, you see manuscripts identified by letter + number. D1 = Devanagari manuscript 1 (info given in intro), etc.

The notes are invaluable. Note, however, the critical edition main text tells a version of the #Ramayana that nobody in premodern India ever read

ఈనాడు మానవసంబంధాలన్నీ ఆర్ధిక సంబంధాలుగా మారిపోతున్నాయి. అన్నదమ్ములు,అక్కాచెల్లెళ్ళు చిన్న చిన్న కారణాలతో,అహంకారంతో,మనస్పర్ధలతో విడిపోతున్నారు.ఇటువంటి సమయంలో రామాయణం మొత్తం మానవాళికి ఒక ఆశాజ్యోతి.
రాముడు తోబుట్టువుల గొప్పతనం గురించి రామాయణంలో చెప్పిన మాట అందరూ గుర్తించుకోదగినది.
ఇంద్రజిత్తు (మేఘనాధుడు) తో యుద్ధం చేసిన లక్ష్మణుడు అతడు చేసిన అస్త్రప్రయోగంతో మూర్ఛపోతాడు. రక్తపుమడుగులో ఉన్న తమ్ముడిని చూసిన రాముడికి ఎక్కడలేని దుఃఖం వచ్చి సుశేషునితో ఈ విధంగా అంటాడు.
నా ప్రాణానికి ప్రాణమైన లక్ష్మణుని ఈ స్థితిలో చూసి నా శక్తి క్షీణించిపోతోంది. ఒకవేళ లక్ష్మణుడు మరణిస్తే, నా జీవితానికి, సంతోషానికి అర్దమేముంది? నా వీరత్వం సిగ్గుపడుతోంది. చేతి నుంచి ధనుస్సు పడిపోయినట్టుంది. బాణాలు జారిపోతున్నాయి. కన్నీరుతో కళ్ళు నిండి దృష్టి కూడా కనిపించడంలేదు.

Why is #Ramayan considered mythology by our own people when we have Ram Setu which is man made. 1. Image
As per the Institute for Scientific Research on Vedas (I-SERVE), planetarium software has ascertained the birth of Lord Rama as 10th January 5114 BC in Ayodhya. 
Which matches time given in Valmiki Ramayana. Image
our comprehension, as myths is the biggest disservice that we do to our own history. Image

* If we don't perform our duties properly, we will not be eligible for the good we except to happen
* Desires must be within limits
Some extracts from #Ramayan_TheGloryOfIndia
* If you vow someone, don't break it at any cost!

* Follow the truth, it will save you!

* Don't enjoy at the cost of other's helplessness!

* Anger must be controllable in one's hands

* Serving Parents is superior than Yajna-Yagas too!

#Ramayan_TheGloryOfIndia lessons.
Ram is that Avatar of Vishnu who lead a life of normal human and gave us a lesson on how do we have to lead the life! #Ramayan_TheGloryOfIndia is the work of Valmiki who recorded it in the form of teaching to Ram's sons and it was spread subsequently!

#Ramayana - Part1 #Hindi

बहुत समय पहले की बात है, इतने पहले की कि जहाँ समय की गणना भी अपनी तथ्यता को पूर्णतया निभा न सके। कोई आठ हज़ार वर्ष पूर्व की बात है। मनुष्य सभ्यता के उस मुहाने पर खड़ा था जिसके एक और वन एवं गुफाएँ थी, दूसरी ओर कृषि, भाषा, ग्राम, जनपद और नगर थे।
सरस्वती से गंगा की गोदी तक सभ्यता आ चुकी थी और बलवान सरस्वती के क्षीण होने के बाद गंगा की उर्वर गोदी में आर्यव्रत का नया जीवन जन्म ले रहा था। संध्या का समय था। सूर्यदेव अभी क्षितिज से कुछ दूर थे। दो ऋषि अपने विचारों में मग्न तीव्र गति से तमसा के तट की और बढ़ रहे थे।
दो ऋषि अपने विचारों में मग्न तीव्र गति से तमसा के तट की और बढ़ रहे थे। दो ऋषि अपने विचारों में मग्न तीव्र गति से तमसा के तट की और बढ़ रहे थे। कुछ किशोर तट पर तमसा के जल में कमर तक डूबे, उनके साथ ही कुछ किशोर तट पर पत्थरों को ढोते हुए व्यस्त थे।

When Valmiki completed his #Ramayana, Narada said 'It's good, but Hanuman's is better'.

#Valmiki didn't like that and wondered whose Ramayana was better. He found #Hanuman Ramayana inscribed on seven broad leaves of a banana tree. He read it and found it to be perfect.
The most exquisite choice of grammar and vocabulary, metre & melody. He couldn't help himself. He started to cry. Is it so bad?asked Hanuman No, it's so good, said Valmiki 'Then why are u crying? asked Hanuman.Bcoz after reading ur Ramayana no one will read mine, replied Valmiki.
Hearing this Hanuman tore up the banana leaves stating now no one will ever read Hanuman's Ramayana But why? asked Valmiki.Hanuman said, U need ur Ramayana more than I need mine. You wrote ur Ramayana so that the world remembers Valmiki I wrote my Ramayana so that I remember Ram.

As the tense wait for the #AYODHYAVERDICT spreads across the country, one wonders how many people of my generation and younger have ever read the #Ramayana with any care. Tempted to start a thread of the Ramayana.
Ram (sometimes written as Rama) is an insignia of how the traditional Indian mind considered righteousness. The Ramayana (and the Mahabharata) is/are not ethnically confined. I would argue it (they) belong to, and live in, every Indian. And anyone, any land ever touched by India.
The Ramayana is - as many have noticed - less 'complex' than the Mahabharata. It has fewer characters and sub-plots. To journey from the Ramayana to the Mahabharata is to see a society evolve.

Maricha : Golden Deer Story in Valmiki #Ramayana
Ravan desired to kidnap #Sita, the wife of Rama and asked Maricha to help him in his task. However, he suggested #Ravana to stay away from any conflict with Rama and Lakshmana
@theramayana @idreamofghouls
Then Ravan blamed Mareecha for ill-will toward himself, and threatened him with death. He out of fear consented, though he looked for no less than death from Ram.

Maricha and Ravana flew to Panchavati. Mareecha transformed himself into a golden deer, captivated Sita’s attention
. He had the motto to distract Rama and Lakshmana away from the hut so that Ravan could kidnap Sita.

The golden deer lured Sita. She pleaded with Rama to capture it. Ram aware that this was the play of the demons, was unable to dissuade Sita from her desire....

#ShortThread #Ramayana
I will be posting my thoughts on Ramayana as I read it. Would love to know your response. RT would be appreciated.

This is Balkand Ch. 1. In this Sarg, DevRishi Narad narrates the Summary of Ramayana to the readers via Sage Valmiki.
This chapter is like Synopsis or short Summary of whole Ramayana. As it is evident from last verse, There is no restriction on any person any Varna from reading Ramayana. Any person who reads it will Excel in his specific field of work.
@gopugoswami @AkshayChaitanya
This summary as said by Narad Rishi talks about Rajyabhishek of Lord Ram. His Ram Rajya. But no mention of Luv kusha or Sita going forest. Why would the author miss this detail? Was this chapter written when luv kusha were not born? Or was Uttar Kand added later?

Good to know, @PiyushGoyal recite “ला इलाहा इल्लल्लाह मुहम्मदुन रसूलुल्लाह” as part of his pujas.

All BJP Ministers/MPs/MLAs can take cue from this & give their contribution towards #SabkaVishwas!

Suggest @narendramodi to recite it 4m #RedFort on #August15. It may do wonders😊
Excellent Idea👍
And that will be big-tribute to #MahatmaGandhi as well, who will be vaery happy watching this from above.

Please do it @narendramodi !!
Please EXPLAIN it to those first who think Quran supersede all other religious books. Your दो कौड़ी के लोग:
a) hackled #IshratJahan for reciting #HanumanChalisa
b) Beaten Dilshad for reading #Ramayana #Gita at home

Ancient India was not purely religious. If You see main Hindu Scriptures like Vedas, Upnishad, and Samhita they are collection of philosophies, scientific data and facts. They worshipped nature and were experts in Science, astronomy, mathematics.
#Thread #IndicHistory
Just because the language is Sanskrit, Leftists reject it to be unscientific and religiously motivated.
In recent time ie last few hundred years, many distortion n misinterpretation has been done too and readers who don't know Sanskrit tend to believe it.
Let's dive in brief
#RigVeda: It's full of the geographical data about India. Research on Rig Veda have proven and can be further verified that Our Civilization was River based and most important one was Saraswati. We worshipped nature. eg Agni, Varun, Indra.
