42/n These were not just stray events, but the entire sequence of the planetary positions as described by Valmiki at various stages of Rama’s life can be verified today as having taken place.
43/n This information is significant, since these configurations do not repeat for lakhs of years. The inference that one can draw is that someone was present there to witness the actual happening of these configurations, which got recorded in the story of Rama.
44/n Rama was born on the Navami tithi of Shukla Paksha of Chaitra masa. At that time,the nakshatra was Punarvasu & Sun,Mars,Saturn, Jupiter & Venus were in Aries,Capricorn,Libra,Cancer & Pisces respectively.Lagna was Cancer.Jupiter & Moon were shining together.-Ramayana 1.18.8,9
45/n The conditions can be summarized as:
1 Sun in Aries
2 Saturn in Libra
3 Jupiter in Cancer
4 Venus in Pisces
5 Mars in Capricorn
6 Lunar month of Chaitra
7 9th day after New Moon
8 Moon near Punarvasu Nakshatra
9 Cancer as Lagna
10. Jupiter above the horizon
46/n According to the Planetarium software,it provides the following date: Rama Navami - 10th January 5114 BCE , Observation at 12.30 p.m.
Moving forward,after 25 years of the birth of Lord Ram, the position of planets in the sky tallies with their description in Ramayana.
47/n Again, on the amavasya of the 10th month of the 13th year of exile the solar eclipse had indeed occurred and the particular arrangement of planets in the sky was visible. ( Date comes to 7th October, 5077 BC).
48/n Even the occurrence of subsequent two eclipses also tally with the respective description in Valmiki Ramayana. (Date of Hanuman’s meeting Sita at Lanka was 12th September, 5076 BC). In this manner the entire sequence of the planetary positions gets verified.
49/n some people feel that the appearance of Lord Rama took place many millions of years earlier, in the Treta-yuga. For eg, the Bhagavata Purana clearly states that Lord Rama became king during Treta yuga (Bhag. 9.10.51).
50/n We have been in Kali-yuga for 5000 years. Before this was Dvapara-yuga which lasts 864,000 years. Before that was Treta-yuga, which lasts over 1,200,000 years. Thus, according to this, the existence of Lord Rama had to have been many thousands of years ago.
51/n Thus, according to this,the existence of Lord Rama had to have been many thousands of years ago. And if Lord Rama appeared in one of the previous Treta-yugas,it would certainly indicate that Lord Rama appeared several million years ago.
52/n This is exactly what is corroborated in the Vayu Purana.
Vayu Purana(70.47-48) describes the length of Ravana’s life. It explains that when Ravana’s merit of penance began to decline, he met Lord Rama, the son of Dasarath, in a battle. wherein Ravana and his followers.
53/n
And was killed in the 24th Treta-yuga. The Roman transliteration of the verse is:

tretayuge chaturvinshe ravanastapasah kshayat
ramam dasharathim prapya saganah kshayamiyavan
54/n The same Ramayana that gives the planetary descriptions also tells that Lord Rama came in Treta-yuga. The Matsya Purana (47/240,243-246) is another source that also gives more detail of various avataras and says Bhagawan Rama appeared at the end of the 24th Treta-yuga.
55/n There are 1000 Treta-yugas in one day of Brahma, & it is calculated that we are presently in the 28th cycle of the four yugas of Vaivasvata Manu, who is the seventh Manu in the series of 14 Manu rulers who exist in one kalpa or day of Brahma.
56/n Each Manu is considered to live for 71 such divya-yuga cycles. So, without getting too complicated about things,from the 24th Treta-yuga to the present age of this 28th cycle of Kali-yuga,there is obviously a diff of millions of years when Lord Rama manifested here on earth.
57/n This gives the period of Lord Rama approximately 18 million years ago. Furthermore, the planetary positions mentioned in the Ramayana would also have occurred multiple times in history prior to the calculated date.
58/n Of course, few people may believe this unless they are already familiar with the vast lengths of time that the Vedic literature deals with.

Nonetheless, maybe there is further reason why we should accept that Lord Rama appeared millions of years ago.
59/n In the Valmiki Ramayana, Sundara-Kanda explains that when Hanuman first approached Ravana’s palace,he saw the doorways surrounded by horses & chariots,palanquins & aerial cars, beautiful horses & elephants,nay, with four-tusked elephants decked with jewels.
60/n Elsewhere in the Valmiki Ramayana, Sundara-Kanda an ogress named Trijata has a dream of Lord Rama,which she describes to the other demoniac ogresses upon awakening. In that dream she sees Rama, scion of Raghu, united again with Sita.
61/n Sri Rama was mounted on a huge elephant, closely resembling a hill, with four tusks. The question is how could there be a mention of the elephants with four tusks unless Valmiki and the people of his era were familiar with such creatures?
62/n A quick search on the Encarta Encyclopedia will let us know that these four-tusked elephants were known as Mastodontoidea,which are said to have evolved around 38 million years ago & became extinct about 15 million years ago when the shaggy & two tusked Mastodons increased.
63/n Now there’s something to think about, eh? So this would mean that the specific planetary configuration that is described in the Ramayana, and is verified by Pushkar Bhatnagar, may have indeed happened, but at a time millions of years prior to merely 10,000 years ago.
64/n In this way,as we go through the evidence,we can see how Lord Rama was an actual historic personality,as described in the Ramayana and in other Puranic texts. Nonetheless, there will always be those for whom no matter what you present for verification, it will not be enough.
65/n Some just won't believe it. Some will, some won't, so what, let's move on. But many in the world already accept the authority of the Ramayana and other Vedic texts for the verification of the existence of Lord Rama.
n/n The time seeks history to rewritten. It’s my humble request from @narendramodi @PrakashJavdekar to pl help us restore our history.
