Buddhism and Vedas

Buddhism is often considered to be an anti-Vedic atheist philosophy. While today there are huge number of schools and sects within Buddhism (exceeded perhaps only by Islam in terms of number of divisions, sects, sub-sects within), if we review the original teachings of Gautam Buddha, we find that he was only trying to teach the concepts of Vedas to best of his understanding.

Vocabulary of Buddhism

1. The vocabulary of Buddhism is adopted from prevailing literature.

The word Buddha comes in Mahabharat Shantiparva 193/6 to mean ‘intelligent’.

Bodhisatva has been used for Sri Krishna in Shishupal Vadh 15/58 and its commentary by Vallabhdeva.

Bhikshu again is a word denoting certain sage in Mahabharat Shantiparva 325/24 and Gautam Dharmasutra 3/2.

Shraman comes in Brihadaranyak Upanishad and Gautam Dharmasutra

Nirvana comes from Deval Dharmasutra

and so on.

2. The famous Buddhist chant of Om Mani Padme Hum speaks for itself on glory of Om – that originates from Vedas and is integral part of Hinduism.

 

Vedas in teachings of Mahatma Buddha

3. In Sutta Nipat 192, Mahatma Buddha says that:

Vidwa Cha Vedehi Samechcha Dhammam Na Uchchavacham Gachhati Bhooripanjo.

People allow sense-organs to dominate and keep shuffling between high and low positions. But the scholar who understands Vedas understands Dharma and does not waver.

4. Sutta Nipat 503:

Yo Vedagu Gyanarato Sateema …….

One should support a person who is master of Vedas, contemplative, intelligent, helpful if you desire to inculcate similar traits.

5. Sutta Nipat 1059:

Yam Brahmanam Vedagum Abhijanjya Akinchanam Kamabhave Asattam……

One gets free from worldly pains if he is able to understand a Vedic Scholar who has no wealth and free from attraction towards worldly things.

6. Sutta Nipat 1060:

Vidwa Cha So Vedagu Naro Idha Bhavabhave Sangam Imam Visajja…..

I state that one who understands the Vedas rejects attraction towards the world and becomes free from sins.

7. Sutta Nipat 846:

Na Vedagu Diththia Na Mutiya Sa Manameti Nahi Tanmayoso….

One who knows Vedas does not acquire false ego. He is not affected by hearsay and delusions.

8. Sutta Nipat 458:

Yadantagu Vedagu Yanjakaale Yassahuti Labhe Taras Ijjeti Broomi

I state that one who acquires Ahuti in Havan of a Vedic scholar gets success.

These are just a few examples from works of Mahatma Buddha.

 

Why Mahatma Buddha rejected Vedas

9. Mahatma Buddha did not reject Vedas per se, but the malpractices happening in name of Vedas. For example, if you call someone – He is a Neta of India – today, he may get offended and feel as if you have called him corrupt and manipulative. This is not because Neta word in itself means ‘corrupt’, but because this is what we see of the so-called Netas today.

Similarly, when Mahatma Buddha questioned birth-based casteism, animal sacrifice and other nonsense practices, he was answered that Vedas sanction so. Thus, like any sane morally upright person would do, Mahatma Buddha stated that: “If Vedas sanction these evil practices, then I reject Vedas.”

Had Gautam Buddha obtained an opportunity to study the actual Vedas and not go by the false notions prevailing, he could no way have issued such a statement.

And the country + entire world would have been strong enough to counter barbaric attacks of West/ Central Asian tribals that has resulted in the greatest problem of last 1000 years – terrorism.

10. If you review the basic precepts of Buddhism, they are simply Vedic teachings reworded.

– For example, the 4 cardinal truths on life, suffering, desire, cessation is straight from Yoga and Nyaya Darshan. In fact Nyaya Darshan 1.2 echoes almost the same essence in as many words.

– The 8 fold path is adequately covered in a variety of ways in all ancient texts – Vedas, Manusmriti, Mahabharat and Yoga Darshan for example.

– The emphasis on Ahimsa is adapted from Yoga Darshan that puts Ahimsa as the first essential discipline for progress in Yoga- the process of realizing self and God.

– Theory of rebirth and Law of Karma that Buddhism is built upon finds its foundation in mantras of Vedas. Refer examples in http://agniveer.com/3203/islam-vedas/

– Rejection of birth-based caste-system is also in lines with Vedas. Refer http://agniveer.com/series/caste-system-3/

– Emphasis on meditation is straight adopted from the Yoga Darshan that itself is based on Vedas.

– The 5 commandments for Buddhists and especially monks are from Yoga Darshan 1.2.3

In summary, one can state that Buddhism, as preached by Gautam Buddha, was a system of morality based on Vedas.


11. Mahatma Buddha was not atheist. Atheism developed later. At best, Gautam Buddha can be said to be agnostic. He believed that first and foremost duty is to raise one’s intellect level through practice of moral code of conduct and mind control.
Why was Mahatma Buddha atheist?

12. Mahatma Buddha did not believe in arguments or debates. He had a very practical approach. He thus refused to either deny or acknowledge presence of God or a supreme entity. He was content with teaching self-control and self-constraint and did not take trouble of attempting a solution of the great problems of Universe: How it began? Is it everlasting? Have I existed in past? Will I exist forever? etc.

Later philosophers of Buddhism did attempt to solve these mysteries through their own analysis and that is how Buddhism developed so many branches and sects.

In Kula Mayukyaovad Majjhama Nikaya there is a reference where someone asked Gautam Buddha whether the world is everlasting. He replied, “Did I ever promise that I shall teach you whether the world is everlasting or not? If not, then do not press the inquiry.”

In Sabbasava Sutta, he suggests that such inquiries into self and universe are meaningless.

Thus Mahatma Buddha focused on practical aspects and neglected the theoretical or metaphysical aspects. This was perhaps because he wanted to ensure that ritualistic malpractices do not overshadow the core essence of his teachings.

However these are natural questions in any human being and thus later Buddhists had to make up for this deficiency in a variety of ways.

But if we review the original philosophy of Mahatma Buddha, there is no evidence of he being atheist or anti-Vedic.

His attitude towards Vedas and Theism was that of indifference rather than rejection. In this indifference lied his Vedic foundation. Because he eventually adopted only from the Vedas to form his ideology and strived to be an honest practitioner of “Accept truth, reject the rest.” to best of his capability and intent.

 

Impact of Buddhism

13. Buddhism had a great impact during its times. It paved way for rejection of distortions and external symbols towards nurture of morality. Since Buddhism did not challenge any of the key philosophical foundations of existing way of life – rebirth, law of karma, emphasis on morality – it became popular not only in India and across Asia. But soon it declined especially in India.

14. As Mahatma Buddha himself said, “The body contains within itself the power to renew its strength but also the causes that lead to its destruction.”

Buddhism-and-Vedas

In case of Buddhism, the cause lied in its incompleteness. While it adopted the moral precepts of Vedas, it ignored the metaphysical foundations. Thus while a whole generation of Buddhist philosophers did spring up later, they could not address the key metaphysical questions convincingly and cohesively – On Self, Universe and Unchangeable Laws. This may work for pragmatics but not for the truly philosophical minds.

A mind tired with illogical ways of life may find great reprieve in focusing purely on moral precepts and meditation. But for someone who hails for a culture having a vast legacy of philosophical richness in every mundane and not-so-mundane aspect of life, there are more questions needed to be explored to quench the intellectual thirst.

Acharya Shankar debated with Buddhists of his era and proved that whatever Buddhism (of that era) argues by denying existence of God can also be explained by Adwait (One singular entity everywhere). Thus for centuries the debate between atheists and Vedics continued giving rise to a vast number of philosophical texts in India.

15. Later Buddhism tried to deny more clearly the existence of God and even that of soul but could not give a satisfactory substitute. They believed in eternal immutable law and never ending chain of cause and effect. But in absence of an entity ensuring that the laws work smartly and for our benefit, it was a blind alley: A religion without a deity! A worshipper without an object of worship!

This forced Buddhists to evolve their own elaborate set of ceremonies, rituals, idols, chants and practices, but this only brought them in rift with the original concepts. Some historians state that idol-worship began with Buddhism. All this kept splitting it into so many branches that are startlingly different at times. The religion supposed to be based on logic, intellect and mind-control, developed loads of superstitions, blind beliefs, tantra practices, witchcraft and myths of miracles. Today the divine Dalai Lama superstition has become foundation of popular Buddhism.

16. The rift widened so much that the religion, which is said to have been based on foundation of Non-Violence or Ahimsa, and which is said to have rejected Vedas because Vedas were perceived to sanction animal-sacrifice, is one of the largest consumers of meat-products today! In many Buddhist places, they hang a board outside meat-shop that says: “Believe Us, This meat is not for you.” Now the monks are guilt-free in eating meat in these shops!!

When someone asked Dalai Lama while he was helping himself with a serving of meat, he said, ” I am Buddhist. I am not vegetarian!”

Ironically, what is taught today across world is that Mahatma Buddha got perturbed when he saw people carrying animals for sacrifice and hence rebelled! Very few people perhaps know that the cult that had its very origin in Animal Rights is the largest killer of animals today! All for taste!

And followers of Vedas – which were alleged to endorse animal killing – are today the greatest proponents of Animal Rights!

In fact, many sects of Buddhism believe that Mahatma Buddha died due to indigestion from consumption of pork offered as charity. (as per these sects whatever provided in charity must be consumed.)

Similarly, while Buddhism (which started with rejecting man-made caste system) is now divided into so many sects/ sub-sects with its own sectoral practices that are necessary to adopt to be one of them, it is followers of Vedas who reject all man-made divisions and appeal for oneness of entire humankind regardless of man-made rituals and beliefs.

The roles are completely reversed today.

Coming back to the roots – Vedas – seems to be the best way to emulate Gautam Buddha today!!

17. While Buddhism could create appeal among other regions and can impress Christians today (Christianity derives its philosophical foundation in Buddhism and hence it is the next logical bridge for Christians to an evolved and more matured view of life), but for India – that has been home to a whole chain of eminent thinkers, the vagueness of Buddhism could not hold its appeal for long.

Today, whatever Buddhism prevails in India is primarily a reaction to the birth-based caste system and related rituals which are wrongly attributed to Vedas.

18. The final blow to Buddhism came from Islamic invasion in medieval era. The Bamiyan Buddhas of Afghanistan are mute spectators of that gory period of history. Buddhism, by its very rejection of other aspects of life except moral precepts, became most vulnerable to Muslim attacks. This has been the greatest damaging gift of Buddhist ideology to present era. The escapist Buddhist view that preferred to be neutral to all that happens with us in world, coupled with a damaging caste-system among Hindus, made sure that barbaric uncivilized tribals could decimate us and establish their dominance. Hinduism could still survive due to its inherent emphasis on realism, but Buddhism perished. And this untimely perish had further adverse outcomes on future of India in the form of philosophical downtime.

19. Ask any weight-trainer and he would tell you that if you need to build big biceps, you need to focus on leg-squats as well. Lop-sided development does not work. It only causes injuries. Similarly mere focus on moral precepts do not work for society. One has to dwell into other aspects – society, politics, science, philosophy, metaphysics, etc – for things to work out. That is why Vedas emphasize and train on a vast variety of subjects.

While Buddhism adopted the moral precepts from Vedas, it made a blunder by ignoring the fuller picture. And that changed the path of history forever.

In fact Buddhism was not supposed to be a distinct sect in first place. It was merely supposed to be a philosophy focusing on moral aspects of life. Mahatma Buddha did not gave any preachings on other aspects at all. The blunder was that his followers took his narrow specific focus as a complete recipe of life.

Often we get so enamored by personalities that we lose the big picture. We consider fullness in whatever attracts our attention for long. For example, we witnessed the cricket drama for a month and now there seems nothing more patriotic than winning a World Cup and recommending Bharat Ratna for a cricketer! Similarly, most cults sprang up because the followers failed to consider the deeds and views of their role models as a critical PART of a bigger picture and instead considered completeness in that SMALL PART.

Mahatma Buddha considered eradication of misery as the Mission. While this is true, he took it to a narrow extreme and hence created a philosophy that was too pessimistic for common man to be motivated enough for worthwhile actions. This coupled with absence of any discussions on the key questions that initiate spiritual thinking – who am I, will I die forever, will this world end etc – left no incentive for a layman to extend his efforts beyond sitting in an isolated place trying to control the mind. Why would then one make sacrifice for nation, fight the enemies and work for smiles on face of his fellow-beings when he does not know clearly why he is doing so?

Today, psychologists would tell you that running away from miseries cannot bring the same level of motivation for worthwhile actions than desire for greater happiness.

Avoidance of miseries because world is full of miseries implies that one would naturally escape from worldly duties because even these performance of these duties would cause indulgence and hence miseries.

After all, Buddhist philosophy asserted that our misery began the moment we were born. To deny even the Self (Anatma) to become indifferent to pain becomes goal of life. How can then indifference generate actions when there is even no vaguely clear end-goal to be reached and denial is the best recipe?

Mahatma Buddha talked of 4 right beliefs: Knowledge of misery, Knowledge of origin of misery, Knowledge of cessation of misery and knowledge of path leading to cessation of misery.

But when even ‘I’ does not exist, who will work for getting these right beliefs? And what would be obtained? This incompleteness led to rank pessimism. The philosophies that emerged to counter this blinded belief system of Mahatma Buddha also suffered from the same pessimism and inherent inertia against vigorous actions.

Buddhism was doing bicep curls but not squatting sufficiently. It took only one part of Vedic message but ignored the rest.

Thus nationalism and reformist zeal could not co-exist prominently with Buddhism (even though Mahatma Buddha himself was an extremely dynamic man). It left Buddhism defenseless against savage attacks and created ‘Parable of Boiled Frog‘. If you put a frog in hot water, it would jump out immediately. But if you put it in a beaker and gradually increase the temperature of water from cold to warm to hot to boiling, the frog does not jump out. It dies instead. This is because the nervous system of frog is unable to detect gradual changes in temperature.

Lack of focus on proactive action plus view of life being a misery in either case – action or no action plus belief in everything being futile because everything is temporary plus refusal to look into bigger picture and focussing only on a narrow set of precepts, turned Buddhism into a frog. It offered little resistance to invaders and virtually opened the doors for savages to India.

And whatever Buddhism survived is far from original thoughts of the founder – a countless number of sects/ subsects with extremely diverse view and having only image of Gautam Buddha in common.

 

It is true that there is suffering in world. But to say that it is unalloyed pure suffering, with no iota of pleasure is a dangerous generalization. Absolute unalloyed pessimism cannot goad man to action. The world is not an abode of misery. The Benevolent God could not have made such a nasty world where suffering reigns. Even the most miserable in the world has some sort of joy which keeps him up. Even stoics had to summon up exceptional resolve when they prepared themselves for suicide. No sane being wishes to die because behind all miseries there is a hope that the all-blissful God will not leave us in lurch. Whether one believes in God or not, in this hope for a better future lies the bliss and acceptance of Supreme power. To deny this is to deny reality. And a philosophy that denies realism cannot face the challenges of real world.

Kapila states in Sankhya 5.113 that at least during Sushupti (deep slumber), Samadhi (deep meditation) and Moksha (Salvation) soul gets an experience of Supreme bliss.

Swami Dayanand succinctly explained the flaw in lines of Vedas: “If you compare the pleasure and pain of the world, pleasures many times exceed the pain. And many pure souls earn the bliss of salvation by constant practice of virtuous actions.”

(If Agniveer were to pick the most inspiring quote from entire Vedic teachings it has ever come across, it would undoubtedly be this one.)

This makes the Vedic philosophy distinctly optimistic and invigorating. It assuages the rigor of present life and makes the future hopeful. It illumines our present as well as future.

We wish if someone could have made this statement during times of Mahatma Buddha! History would have been different. But alas!

In absence of this, Buddhism turned to escapism (even though Mahatma Buddha himself was a man of action). When the savages attacked, we were occupied with our meditations to ignore the self and cause of misery through indifference. We neglected built up of strong armies, regular training, and R&D on defense. We were indifferent to need for reformist zeal to break the very roots of caste-system and gender discrimination, we refused to look into the Vedas to discover what the original teachings were. We were simply practicing indifference to real challenges around.

And today, while Buddhism does not prominently exist in India (except in Dharmashala where Dalai Lama is forced to have asylum after Chinese aggression), the philosophy and the myriad of other philosophies that emerged to amend or counter it, turns us into a fatalistic society. We have developed high inertia, resist the urge to face challenges, attempt to use philosophy as a tool to justify our escapism and have gradually moved towards becoming indifferent to whatever does not pinch us too strongly. Ahimsa has become just an alibi for laziness and cowardice.


Conclusion

No, we don’t mean that Buddhism is to be blamed for all this. Not at all. Buddhism was a natural reaction to the prevailing ironies in the society of those times. And an essential one. We believe that people have different needs and level of evolution and hence for many including Mahatma Buddha this was the most optimal view of life. For a society that was focusing too much on blind rituals and irrational social practices, Buddhism gave the right shock to spur up more rational and logical thinking. The roots of the problem lay much earlier and Buddhism was merely a logical and necessary outcome.

Teachings of Mahatma Buddha are based purely on moral aspects of Vedas. His teachings also showcase his respect for Vedas. His vocabulary and usages were derived from Vedic texts. Thus he was in summary a Vedic preacher to best of his abilities.

Thus there is NO WAY that Buddhism of Gautam Buddha can be termed as separate from Vedic Dharma. It is as much an offshoot attempting to reach the source – Vedic wisdom – as other sects.

However the defection of the narrow incomplete focus of Buddhism into a complete philosophy in its own right (which it never meant to be in first place) was detrimental to national interests.

Had Buddhism been a more informed and complete philosophy based on a more thorough and rigorous study of Vedas instead of its paradoxical apparent rejection based on extremely superficial grounds, history would have been different.

Had Buddhists spent efforts to reform the society the way Raja Ram Mohun Roy and Swami Dayanand attempted, instead of attempting to split into a separate sect (which it never was), history would have been different.

Similarly, if all other sects and cults would have not been based on bounded rationality of a few well-intentioned men and had instead attempted to grab the complete picture of the concepts in their original source, the Vedas, world would have been a much more sensible place today. Much more tolerant, broader in outlook and rational.

Whatever good that we see in any cult or sect is already existing in Vedas though elaborated through works and teachings of great legends from time to time. However because most of these founders were addressing their imminent short-term needs and the followers believed in exclusivity of their sect, the holistic view got missing.

The key lesson is that any incomplete or temporary solution for today would eventually become a problem tomorrow.

The only way is to adopt the complete solution.

Swami Dayanand suggested a way to approach this issue of so many sects and cults and religions touching one part of the elephant each. Let all the common points in all these sects be brought together that are acceptable to all. For example, non-violence, morality, nationalism, truthfulness, non-stealing etc. Then eliminate all assumptions, beliefs and practices unique to each sect that is not otherwise explainable. This becomes the Universal Dharma for all human beings and this is exactly what Vedas teach.

Agniveer respects all the great men of history who attempted to bring society closer to Vedic living. And aspires that we evolve to reach the original source that all these great legends were attempting to reach – The wisdom of Vedas. Instead of viewing completeness in our own silo, let us attempt to integrate all the silos together into One. Lets get back to the roots instead of holding on to each tiny branch as the source. No we don’t mean that all branches be cut-off and only root of the tree should remain. We only desire that each branch knows that we form a tree only when all the branches are together and supported by the root. A branch detached from rest of the branches and root would only be a dry piece of wood. So lets all be One Tree and strengthen the roots of the Tree that would then strengthen us all.

This is the only way to pay our homage to their legacy. Our failure to do so brought us the miseries we faced till today.

Our success would ensure Shantih (peace, bliss, happiness) everywhere.

      What does MGandhi have to do with this post?
      if it was MBuddha, still do u know that Swami Dayanand was poisoned 13 times?
      What does it even matter, of who said what to whom?
      Verbs matter more than nouns. I hope people get that from Vedas.

      Lets learn what is needed to be learnt. Rest shall be rejected.

      AUM,

        A much needed article !
        Mahatma Buddh popogate just one part (Moksha) of Vedic philosophy and left other parts (Dharma,Artha,and Kama).He was unhappy from anti Vedic practices done by Brahmans at that time.He came through adultred Vedas containing “Bali” in Yagnas,and Varna vyavastha by birth and hence criticise them.Buddhism was a revolt against these anti Vedic activities,not against Vedas.

      Namaste Tariq

      Mohandas was no prophet for us whom we have to believe blindly. Das was a politician and not a Vedic scholar or someone who could comment on the legendary works of Swami Dayanand.

      So get it clear that neither praises nor criticism of any Das for our legends carries any weightage for us.

      But if it carries weight for you then you should accept that Muslims are experts in stabbing and they are violent in nature because Das wrote it in his book/newspaper. Moreover Mohandas remained Hindu and never converted to Islam. So being follower of Mohandas, you should leave Islam.

      BTW do you know what Ayatullah Khomeini has to say about Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Aisha etc?

          Namaste Brother roger

          Great video! I remind once I was reading the great Veer Savarkar, in one of his books he has shared an interesting incident regarding the usage of telephone by Muslim Ummah! When the telephone was invented, everyone in the world welcomed this great technology except Muslims. The Ulema as usual had their own test for judging something halaal or haraam, i.e. Quran and Hadith. And since no such technology is discussed in Quran or Hadith, Ulema called this invention as FITNA OF SHAITAN :) But later on when those hypocrites realized that they are loosing big time because of their stupidity, they came up with an idea! The idea was to check whether telephone is Halaal or Haraam for Muslims! And it was decided to recite Quranic verses from one end of telephone and if the verses are heard on the other end, it will be accepted that telephone is Halaal as per Allah’s wish :)

          And when this test was successfully completed, Ulema declared that use of telephone is halaal because it passed the verses of Quran from one end to the other and thus Allah is in favor of this technology!

          The comment of Veer Savarkar is really touching on this! He wrote that it was good that Quranic verses were chosen for this test! Because if the 14th chapter of Satyarth Prakash (in which Islam is analyzed and its lies are exposed thoroughly) by Swami Dayanand would have been chosen for this test, this technology would have remained FITNA OF SHAITAN for the idiots forever :(

    सबसे पहले तो वज्र जी से अभयदान, अग्निवीर पर पुन: सवाल उठाने के लिये !!
    सांख्य के सूत्र “समाधि सुषुप्ति मोक्षेषु ब्रह्मरूपता” का अर्थ at least during Sushupti (deep slumber), Samadhi (deep meditation) and Moksha (Salvation) soul gets an experience of Supreme bliss.
    मुझे ठीक नहीं लगा |
    सुषुप्ति में ईश्वर के आनन्द की अनुभूति नहीं होती क्योंकि वह तामसिक अवस्था होती है | किंतु गाढ़ निद्रा में अज्ञान के कारण दुख: अनुभूति नहीं होती, समाधि और मोक्ष में दुख: निवृति के साथ साथ आनन्द की उपलब्धि भी होती है, यह अन्तर है |

    इस आपति के बाद एक शंका, वज्र जी स्यात् इस पर प्रसन्न हो !!
    अग्निवीर जी ! आपने स्वामी दयानन्द के हवाले से लिखा संसार में सुख अधिक है | किंतु सांख्यकार के निम्न दो सूत्रों पर विचार करे |
    कुत्रापि कोsपि सुखी न |
    तदपि दुख:शबलमिति दु:खपक्षे निक्षिपन्ते विवेचका : || (अध्याय 6, सूत्र 7-8)
    कहीं भी कोई भी सुखी नहीं है |
    संसार में जो सुख उपलब्ध होता है वह दु:ख मिश्रित होने से विवेकी लोग उस सुख को भी दु:ख कोटि में ही मानते है |

    और देखिये, योग-सूत्रकार महर्षि पतंजलि जी क्या कहते है
    “परिणाम ताप संस्कार दु:खै: गुणवृति विरोधाच्च दु:खमेव सर्वम् विवेकिन:” (साधनपाद)
    सांसारिक सुख में उपरोक्त चार प्रकार के दु:ख मिले होने से विवेकी के लिये ये सारा सांसारिक सुख दु:ख ही है |

    अब आचार्य दयानन्द की बात मानें तो महर्षि कपिल और पतंजलि के अनुसार अविवेकी ठहरते है, जो कि सत्य होते हुए भी स्वयम् को स्वीकार करना मुझे तो कठिन है !!

    चूंकि आपने लिखा है (If Agniveer were to pick the most inspiring quote from entire Vedic teachings it has ever come across, it would undoubtedly be this one.)
    अत: आपसे इन वैदिक ऋषियों में संगति बैठाने की विनय है |

      नमस्ते बहन,
      कपिल मुनि के इस सूत्र का अर्थ हमने पंडित गंगाप्रसाद की पुस्तक “बुद्ध और दयानंद’ से लिया है. यहाँ यह अर्थ एक भिन्न सन्दर्भ में किया गया है.
      वस्तुतः ईश्वर के आनंद की अनुभूति सदा होती है क्योंकि ईश्वर आनंदस्वरूप है एवं हमारे भीतर बहार सर्वत्र व्याप्त है. हाँ, ज्ञान के स्तर के अनुसार ऊपर नीचे हो सकता है. सुषुप्ति में सुख नहीं मिलता तो हम कभी यह नहीं कहते कि मैं सुखपूर्वक सोया. एक परेशान दुखी निराश मन को सुषुप्ति में किंचित सुख तो प्राप्त होता ही है क्योंकि जागृत अवस्था में ऐसा व्यक्ति मन को दुःख कि ओर ले जा रहा होता है. तभी डॉक्टर भी बहुत अधिक परेशान व्यक्ति को किसी प्रकार बेहोश करने का प्रयास करते हैं.

      सार में ऐसा कभी नहीं होता कि सर्वव्यापक आनंदस्वरूप ईश्वर के नैसर्गिक सुख से हम पूर्णतः वंचित हों. एक निराश मन जो सब स्थान पर दुःख देख रहा है, वह भी कम से कम सुषुप्ति में मन के शांत होने से सुख अनुभव कर ही लेता है. इसीलिए उठकर हल्का महसूस करता है. हाँ समाधी और मुक्ति में इस सुख की विशेष वृद्धि होती है क्यों तब मन भी ईश्वर की ओर मुखरित होता है.
      अतः यहाँ यह बात उस निराश व्यक्ति की तुलना में की गयी है जो सर्वत्र दुःख देखकर निराश हो रहा हो.

      आपने जो संख्याकर एवं योग सूत्रकार के जो उद्धरण प्रस्तुत किये हैं वो भी पूर्णतः सही हैं. किन्तु यहाँ पात्र एक ज्ञानी व्यक्ति है जो यह समझ रहा है के पूर्ण सुख तो ईश्वर से ही प्राप्त हो सकता है. अतः वह ईश्वर प्राप्ति के लिए उन्नत कर्म करता है. जैसे कामधेनु का दूध पीने वाले को फिर बकरी का दूध नहीं भाता, वैसे ही जिस आत्मा ने उन्नत कर्मों के द्वारा ईश्वर के आनंद का किंचित भी अनुभव किया है, उसे फिर संसारी सुख नहीं भाते. यह सापेक्षिक बात है. अतः यह दशा विवेकी के लिए है. विवेकी वही है जिसने पूर्ण पुरुषार्थ के द्वारा उन्नत कर्म करके अपने स्तर को एक न्यूनतम ऊंचाई तक ला रखा हो.

      ऐसा विवेकी संसार में दुःख देखकर दुःख से पलायन नहीं करता, किन्तु उत्तम कर्मो के द्वारा इस संसार के कण कण में छिपे ईश्वर से सम्बन्ध दृढ करता है.

      अतः दोनों में कोई अंतर्विरोध नहीं है. एक बात पहली कक्षा के विद्यार्थी के लिए है एवं दूसरी आचार्य के लिए. अतः सुख, दुःख आदि की परिभाषा में भी यथोचित भेद है.

      दर्शन के सूक्ष्म विषय को समझने की योग्यता उसी में है जिसने कठोर तप और पुरुषार्थ से शारीर और मन को मजबूत बनाया हो, जो बिना क्लांत हुए लम्बी दौड़ लगा सकता हो. इसीलिए स्वामी दयानंद भी वज्र पुरुष बने रहने के लिए अभ्यास करते थे. किन्तु आजकल बिना ऐसे तप के लोग दर्शन पर चिंतन करने लगते हैं और बिना संदर्भि समझे गलत अर्थ मन में बैठा लेते हैं. दर्शन विषय है साक्षात्कार का. मात्र चिंतन करने से दर्शन नहीं समझा जा सकता. उसके लिए पूर्ण पुरुषार्थ करके जीवन में उत्तम अनुभव प्राप्त करने होंगे.

      हमारा सबसे निवेदन है की दर्शनों और अध्यात्म विद्या को सही रूप से समझने के लिए पहले घोर पुरुषार्थ करे, शरीर वज्र की तरह मजबूत बनाये, देश -जाति – मानवता की रक्षा के लिए सार्थक कर्मो में प्रवृत्त हों, मन को हीरक सा कठोर बनाये, और फिर ये विषय मन में चमक पाएंगे.

      ये हमने अपने सर्वहित की दृष्टि से विनीत विचार रखें है. विचार मतभेद होने पर भी इसे अन्यथा न लेवें. हमारा उद्देश्य विचारो का उत्तेजन उत्पन्न करना था जो हमे राष्ट्र, धर्मं, जाति, समाज, मानवता, संसार आदि के लिए श्रेष्ठ कर्मो के लिए प्रेरित करे.

      यदि हमारी वह दिशा ठीक है तो अन्य वाद-विवाद व्यर्थ है. सबको अपनी अपनी मेधा के द्वारा सत्य पर चिंतन करना चाहिए. क्योंकि अंततः ये गूढ़ विषय आत्मचिंतन के ही विषय हैं.

        सबसे पहले तो आपके प्रेमपूर्ण उत्तर के लिये बहुत बहुत आभार !
        अभी कुछ और स्पष्टीकरण की अपेक्षा है |
        (i) ये जो आपने कहा ” वस्तुतः ईश्वर के आनंद की अनुभूति सदा होती है क्योंकि ईश्वर आनंदस्वरूप है एवं हमारे भीतर बहार सर्वत्र व्याप्त है. हाँ, ज्ञान के स्तर के अनुसार ऊपर नीचे हो सकता है ” इसमें मेरा कहना यह है कि ईश्वर और जीव में दूरी अविद्या के कारण है, अत: जो व्यक्ति न ईश्वर के स्वरूप को जानता, न ही मानता, और न ही कभी उस से आत्मा मन का सम्बन्ध जोड़ने का प्रयास करता उसे भी ईश्वरीय आनन्द की अनुभूति होवे यह समझ से परे है | क्योंकि सुख गुण प्रकृति के सत्व गुण में भी है (यहाँ सत्व के लिये गुण शब्द सांख्य के अनुसार है, न्याय और वैशेषिक के द्रव्य और गुण के अनुसार नहीं)
        अत: जिसे आप निरन्तर ईश्वर के सुख की अनुभूति होना कहते हो मेरे विचार में वह सुखानुभूति प्रकृति के सत्व गुण के कारण होती है | यदि आप अपने कथन की पुष्टि स्वामी दयानन्द का या अन्य ऋषि का प्रमाण दे सके तो बड़ी कृपा होगी |

        (ii) आप इसी निरन्तर ईश्वरीय सुखानुभूति के आधार पर सुषुप्ति में भी ईश्वरीय आनन्द का होना प्रतिपादित करते है | इसका कुछ समाधान तो पहले भाग में ही कह दिया गया है अब कुछ विशेष कहते है | वास्तव में गाढ़ निद्रा में कोई ईश्वरीय सुखानुभूति नहीं होती केवल दुख की निवृति को ही व्यक्ति सुख प्राप्ति कहता है |
        यह बात आपके कथन ” निराश मन जो सब स्थान पर दुःख देख रहा है, वह भी कम से कम सुषुप्ति में मन के शांत होने से सुख अनुभव कर ही लेता है ” से भी पुष्ट होती है |
        एक उदाहरण: आप कार से कार्यालय जा रहे है, मार्ग में दुर्घटना हो गयी (खुदा न करे खास्ता ऐसा कभी हो आपके साथ!) और आपके पैर में चोट लग गयी | कुछ दिनों के बाद समुचित चिकित्सा के बाद आप दुरूस्त हो गये | आपसे आपके मित्र ने पूछा कया हाल है ? तो आप क्या कहोगे, यही न कि अब बड़ा आराम है, सुख है | यहाँ कोई नया सुख आपको नहीं मिला जो पैर दुर्घटना से पहले ठीक था वो पुन: ठीक ही तो हुआ है | इसी तरह सुषुप्ति में भी मन की की चंचलता रूकने के कारण और सत्व गुण के उभार के कारण सुख मिलता है, ईश्वर के नैसर्गिक संसर्ग के कारण नहीं |
        (iii) आपकी स्वामी दयानन्द और कपिल आदि के विषय में संगति से संतोष नहीं हुआ | “दुख से पलायन नहीं करता” शायद आप संसार से पलायन नहीं करता यह कहना चाहते हो क्योंकि दुख से तो छूटना ही चाहता है | जो आपने कहा ” अतः सुख, दुःख आदि की परिभाषा में भी यथोचित भेद है ”
        उसमें आप परिभाषा भेद को प्रमाण सहित देवें तो बड़ी कृपा होगी | इससे विचार करने में बड़ी सुविधा होती | मेरे विचार में स्वामी दयानन्द और कपिल आदि, दोनो ही सांसारिक सुख के विषय में ही बात कर रहे है, यदि इनकी सांसारिक सुख सम्बन्धी परिभाषायें अलग तो कृपया प्रमाण सहित बतावें |
        यह भी विचारणीय है कि स्वामी दयानन्द की बात पहली कक्षा के विद्यार्थी के लिये है और कपिल आदि ऋषियों की बात आचार्य के लिये | क्योंकि जो विवेकी है उसको प्रेरणा देने लिये तो योगसूत्रकार व सांख्यकार ने सूत्र नहीं लिखे, वो तो जो संसार में सुख देख रहा है उसे ही प्रेरित करने के लिये, वास्तविकता से परिचय कराने के लिये ही सूत्र रचे है | विवेकी व्यक्ति की तो स्थिति क्या होती है, उसका चिन्तन कैसा होता है उसका निरुपण किया गया है |

          I think these are topics of introspection and it will be unreasonably too much to expect from Agniveer team that is engaged so much in producing quality content to spend time in such discussions.

          This all seems like problem of nomenclature and nothing else. Nature does not have any quality of pain or pleasure. It is inert. The pleasure of Sattva is because in Sattva our mind is not deviated and towards knowledge. It is not that Sattva is source of happiness. Sattva only prepares conditions so that we experience natural pleasure of God better.

          It is wrong to say that no one believes in God. In fact everyone believes in God. There is difference only in relative clarity of views. Belief in God is a natural property of all living beings. That is implicit. by knowledge, one tries to make this belief more clear. To deny God does not mean one does not believe in God. Denial means that the definition or concept of God known to him from world is not acceptable to one because of stage of knowledge or ignorance. Since God is only source of bliss, even slightest attraction towards seeking bliss means God is believed in.
          Just as one cannot deny his own self, one cannot disbelieve in God. It is only that one refutes a particular concept of God in his mind.

          SO happiness is like an equation H=f(x)-f(y) + z. f(x) is function of knowledge. f(y) is function of ignorance. Z is constant minimum happiness at all times due to grace of God.

          When one is frustrated, H may be negative because f(x) is low, f(y) is high and hence effect of Z is not seen.

          When one is in deep sleep, f(x), f(y) are almost zero and Z give a small positive happiness in H(Sushupti).

          When one is in meditation, f(x) is high, f(y) is very low, Z is constant. So happiness is higher in H(Samadhi).

          When one is in Mukti, f(y) is zero, f(x) is very high. So there is extreme happiness in H(Mukti).

          Now one who knows that H(Mukti)> H(Samadhi) > H(Sushupti) and that H(COnscious life) varies due to interplay of three variables, he would smartly try to maximize f(x) and minimize f(y).

          For him, relative to his goal of H(Mukti), there is misery everywhere. Because H(Conscious life) – H(Mukti) < 0 or negative meaning misery in relative sense.

          Hope that clarifies.

            Excellent Arya Veer

            Amazing explanation. I think that is why mastery of mathematics and science is supposed to be essential to understand Vedas. Many people only study grammar and literature but have not mastered maths and science. That is why they are not able to understand these subtle topics which require high level of conceptualization and formulations.

            There is one more ‘debunking Agniveer’ page opened on Facebook. I also saw a newsletter on email against Agniveer. We should cooperate to support Agniveer and not distract them.

            Thanks a lot.

            (i) आर्यवीर जी ! आपके इस कथन में क्या प्रमाण है कि जड़ मात्र होने से प्रकृति में सुख दुख गुण नहीं है ? प्रकृति सुख दुख अनुभव नहीं करती इसका तात्पर्य यह नहीं कि उसमें सुख दुख गुण नहीं है | मेरा कथन सांख्य दर्शन पर आधरित था वहाँ सत्व-रजस्-तमस् को सुख-दुख-मोहात्मक स्वरूप मना है | आपसे तनिक सांख्य के अवलोकन की विनय है | और भी, सत्व गुण सुख का साधन है और जीव उससे सम्बद्ध होकर सुख अनुभव करता है |

            यदि आप सांख्य को प्रमाण न मानें तो आपका कथन भी तो प्रतिज्ञा मात्र है, उसकी सिद्धि में क्या प्रमाण है ?

            (ii) ईश्वर विश्वास के संदर्भ में “विश्वास” की परिभाषा के लिये आर्य उद्देश्य रत्माला में आचार्य दयानन्द कृत परिभाषा देखें | मेरा कथन उस पर ही आधारित था | जो व्यक्ति किसी कर्मफल प्रदाता को नहीं मानता जिसकी दंड-व्यवस्था पुर्नजन्मों तक जाती हो तथा मोक्ष जैसी स्थिति को न माने उसको ही मैने ईश्वर-अविश्वासी कहा था | प्राकृतिक नियमों की सत्ता तो सभी स्वीकार करते है जिसे हम नियामक ईश्वर की क्रियामात्र कहते है | लोगो को न्यायकारी ईश्वर को स्वीकारने में ही सबसे बड़ी समस्या है |

            (iii) सबसे पहले तो आपको इस सुख-समीकरण
            ” H=f(x)-f(y) + z” के इल्हाम पर शतश: बधाईयाँ !!!
            चूंकि आपने लिखा ” f(x) is function of knowledge ” इससे यह निकला कि चर x से आप ज्ञान को दर्शा रहे है लेकिन यह स्पष्ट नहीं हुआ कि फलन f की range क्या है ?
            मेरा अनुमान है आप शायद वेदना या अनुभूति कहते क्योंकि। अनुकूल अनुभूति सुख कहलाती जिसे आप positive value assign करते और प्रतिकूल अनुभूति को दुख जिसे आप negative value assign करते |
            यदि मेरा अनुमान ठीक है तो आपकी समीकरण ठीक नहीं |
            क्योंकि तब आप y एक स्वतंत्र चर न रहकर -x से ही दर्शया जाना चाहिये क्योंकि अज्ञान, ज्ञान का उल्टा है |
            लेकिन फिर आपको चर x का domain पुन: बदलना पड़ेगा |
            यह इल्हामी समीकरण मुझे कम समझ में आयी, इसे और गणितीय रूप से परिष्कृत करके समझायें |

            (iv) अन्त में अग्नवीर जी से निवेदन ! यदि आप यह समझते हो कि मेरा यह विचार विनिमय आपके समय और उर्जा को नष्ट कर रहा है तो आगे से ऐसा कुछ भी न लिखने के लिये वचनबद्ध हूँ | “वादे-वादे जायते तत्वबोध:” इस वैदिक लोकोक्ति से प्रेरित ही यह संवाद था और कोई मेरा अन्यथा प्रयोजन नहीं |

            चूंकि आर्यवीर जी के कथन को ” it will be unreasonably too much to expect from Agniveer team that is engaged so much in producing quality content to spend time in such discussions.” को अग्निवीर का भी रवैया मानने के लिये एक बार स्पष्ट उत्तर की अपेक्षा है |

            Namaste Everyone,

            It is good to see such discussions. As we had stated in conclusion of the article, our goal was to stir up thoughts, discussions and introspection.

            We don’t promise to provide any answers because answers have to be found within. On a realm where even language fails to express the feelings. However we just wanted to help one ask the right questions. We are glad that we seem to be on somewhat right track.

            We thus encourage all visitors to continue fruitful and insightful discussions.

            We do have a view on the subject and that has been stated in article and previous comments. The doubts raised are also answerable as per those views. In fact address to these doubts form the foundation of our view. From whatever has been written the necessary answers can be deduced. However we do not have the luxury to indulge in more detailed discussions and explain the same at this point in time. Because that would require detailed discussions on a large number of topics to create the foundation.

            Nonetheless we would encourage visitors to reasonably differ with our views fully or partially and extracting the right lessons out of the process of introspection. And if they reach a view that explains things better than our views, we would be keen to improve our own view.

            Hopefully when our primary mission has reached a threshold level, we would have space to explore this aspect further through writings. May Ishwar inspire us to reach there soon.

          नमस्ते बहन सुधा

          ————अत: जिसे आप निरन्तर ईश्वर के सुख की अनुभूति होना कहते हो मेरे विचार में वह सुखानुभूति प्रकृति के सत्व गुण के कारण होती है |————-

          १. परोपकारी व्यक्ति के परोपकार करते समय मिलने वाला सुख आपकी दृष्टि में क्या प्रकृति के गुण के कारण है?
          २. जब ऋषि दयानंद परोपकार वा नीच कर्म करते समय भीतर से आने वाली उल्लास अथवा भय, शंका, लज्जा को ईश्वर की प्रेरणा मानते हैं तो स्पष्ट ही है कि यह उल्लास ईश्वर की ओर से है अथवा ईश्वर के आनंद का भी एक भाग इसमें सदैव विद्यमान रहता है.

          आपके शेष लेख पर मुझे कोई आपत्ति नहीं है. बस एक सुझाव है कि हर बात में शब्द प्रमाण ढूँढने/मांगने के स्थान पर तर्क व बुद्धि के द्वारा उनका निश्चय किया जाए. सुख दुःख के पैमाने देश, काल, परिस्थिति और व्यक्ति के बदलने से बदलते रहते हैं. इसमें किसी शब्द प्रमाण की आवश्यकता नहीं है. किसी मल्ल को जितना व्यायाम सुख देता है उतना व्यायाम किसी क्षीण काय के लिए महा दुःख सिद्ध होगा.

          आशा है कि आप विधर्मियों के वेद विरुद्ध दुष्चक्र को प्राथमिकता देते हुए पहले उसको समाप्त करने का प्रयास करेंगी और तत्पश्चात हम दर्शन के गूढ़ विषयों पर चिंतन कर सकते हैं.

            Indian Agnostic महोदय ! नमस्ते |

            (i) पहली चीज तो यह समझने कि है कोई भी जड़ वस्तु इस संसार में पूर्णरूप से न तो तामसिक है न राजसिक और न ही केवल सत्व से बनी है | हर पदार्थ में तीनो गुण मिले रहते है | जिसमें जिस गुण की प्रधानता होती है औपचारिक रूप से उसे ही सात्विक राजसिक और तामसिक कह दिया अजाता है |
            अत: जो लोग आपके कथनानुसार तामसिक चीजो से सुख प्राप्त करते है वस उसमें व्याप्त सत्व गुण के कारण होता है | और सुखानुभूति में संस्कार, अविद्या आदि भी कारण होते है |

            (ii) आपके इस कथन से कि ” सांख्य और ईश्वर साथ साथ नहीं रह सकते ” मेरा अनुमान है कि आप आचार्य शंकर के अध्येता है क्योंकि उन्हीं ने अपने ब्रह्मसूत्र भाष्य में सांख्य को निरीश्वरवादी मान अपना प्रधान मल्ल घोषित किया है | और पदे पदे अपने भाष्य में खंड़न किया है | इसके समाधान के लिये आपसे आचार्य उदयवीर शास्त्री कृत ग्रंथ-त्रयी: सांख्य दर्शन भाष्य, सांख्य सिद्धांत और सांख्य दर्शन का इतिहास, इन का अवलोकन करने की विनय है |
            ये तीनो पुस्तकें vedicbooks से ली जा सकती है |

            सांख्य के निरीश्वरवादी होने का खंड़न आचार्य दयानन्द के सत्यार्थ प्रकाश के सातवें समुल्लास भी में पढ़े | पुन: मेरा पिष्टपेषण करने का मन नहीं है |
            (iii) अब आपके उस प्रश्न का उत्तर कि क्या मैंने ईश्वर का भी सांख्य के अनुसार ही माना है ? जी हाँ ! बिल्कुल उसके अनुसार ही माना है | जरा निम्न सूत्रों पर गौर फरमायें |

            स हि सर्ववित् सर्वकर्ता |
            वह सर्वज्ञ और सब जगत का रचयिता है |
            ईदृशेश्वरसिद्धि : सिद्धा || ( अध्याय 3, सूत्र 56-57)
            इस प्रकार के ईश्वर की सिद्धि इस शास्त्र में दृढ़ता से की गयी है |

            और सांख्य के पाँचवे अध्याय के सूत्र 2 से 9 तक देखने की कृपा करे, जिसमें ईश्वर को कर्मफल प्रदाता और नित्यमुक्त होने का प्रतिपादन किया गया है |

            अत: कपिल मुनि सर्वज्ञ, सृष्टिकर्ता, कर्मफलदाता और नित्यमुक्त ईश्वर को मानते है जो मुझे भी स्वीकार है |

            (iv) और अन्त में आपसे यही निवेदन है कि सांख्य के विषय और जानने के लिये वो तीन ग्रंथ अवश्य पढ़े |

          • sudha says

            वज्र जी ! नमस्ते |
            (i) पहले प्रश्न के उत्तर में इतना ही कहना है कि इस सम्भावना से इंकार नहीं किया जा सकता कि परोपकार के कार्य ऐसे होते है जो कि सत्व गुण को उभारने का काम करते है और उनसे सुख मिलता है | इसमें ईश्वर की तरफ से कितना आनन्द मिलता या नहीं मिलता इसके विषय में निश्चित रूप से नहीं कहा जा सकता |

            (ii) आपका दूसरा बिंदु ही पहले प्रश्न का आधार है | इस विषय में आपके सुझावानुसार अपनी बुद्धि और तर्क का प्रयोग करते हुए यही कहना है कि यह कोई नियम नहीं है कि बुरे काम करने में भय-शंका- लज्जा और अच्छे काम करने में अभय-नि:शंकता-आनन्दोत्साह हमेशा होता ही है | उदाहरण के लिये एक आतंकवादी जो 72 हूरों के ख्वाब लिये अल्लाह के दीन के लिये, काफिरों को उड़ाने के लिये, आत्मघाती बम से खुद को उड़ा लेता है | और वह उस समय बड़ी प्रसन्नता उत्साह अनुभव करता है जैसे कि अल्ला-ताला ही उसका हाथ पकड़ कर यह काम करवा रहा है |
            यहाँ उसके अभय-नि:शंकता-आनन्दोत्साह का कारण उसकी मूर्खतपूर्ण मान्यता है जिस पर उसका अटल विश्वास है | यदि आप मुझसे पूछे कि भला मैंने कैसे जाना कि उसके दिल में लेशमात्र भी
            भय-शंका- लज्जा नहीं है तो यही प्रश्न आपसे भी पूछा जा सकता है आपके जानने का साधन क्या है ?
            स्वामी दयानन्द का कथन मेरी दृष्टि में पूर्ण रूप से केवल परिपक्व असम्प्रज्ञात समाधि सिद्ध व्यक्ति पर ही लागू होता है जो उस सर्वज्ञ, सर्वप्रेरक देव से सीधे प्रेरणा प्राप्त करता है |
            उससे निचले स्तर के व्यक्तियों के भय-शंका-लज्जा का कारण अपनी अज्ञानता, बुरे संस्कार, सामाजिक भय आदि होते है जो कि कभी कभी अच्छे कार्यो को करते हुए भी होते रहते है |

            (iii) सुख दुख के विषय में आपकी बात से सहमत होते हुए भी यह कहना है कि कुछ चीजें जीवमात्र के लिये सुखदायक होती है और कुछ सबके लिये दुखदायक |
            उदाहरण के लिये : किसी को भी जोर से डंडा मारो वह सबके लिये दुख रूप ही है | यदि किसी की सहनशक्ति ज्यादा है तो वेदना कम होगी लेकिन जो अनुभूति है वह प्रतिकूल ही होगी |
            और भी, जब मतभेद का आधार ही शब्द प्रमाण हो तो उसके निराकरण और संगति के लिये शब्द-प्रमाण की मांग अनुचित तो नहीं है | मेरा कोई ऐसा आग्रह नहीं कि आप प्रमाण देवें ही सही नहीं तो आपकी बात का कोई मूल्य ही नहीं |

            (iv) अब रही आपकी मुझसे आशा की बात ! तो यथाशक्ति, यथारूचि प्रयासरत हूँ |

            Dear Sister Sudha,

            I am astound by your brilliance. Looks like the era of Gargi and Maitreyi is back. Looks like Agniveer’s series on Women in action. I hope you would inspire us all like this in future.

            Please also motivate more women to join and lead these intellectual discussions. This is the greatest success of Agniveer movement.

            Its not time to debate but be delighted for having blessings of a scholarly woman.

            Here is what Agniveer wrote in Women – Foundation of knowledge:
            Yajurveda 34.40: The way dawn brings happiness among human beings, scholarly woman should bring happiness by educating girls.

            Yajurveda 20.85: Scholarly woman should ensure that she educates other women and makes them also scholars.

            Yajurveda 20.84: The scholarly woman purifies our lives with her intellect. Through her actions, she purifies our actions. Through her knowledge and action, she promotes virtue and efficient management of society.

            Yajurveda 20.85: Scholarly woman inspires us towards knowledge. She promotes conduct of noble acts in society.

            Yajurveda 20.86: Scholarly woman rushes an exhilaration within us that comes only through knowledge. She enlightens our knowledge, applications and actions.

            Rigveda 1.164.49: O scholarly woman, your knowledge provides us peace and bliss. You lead us to inculcate noble virtues. You provide us prosperity through your knowledge. May we obey your inspiration that you provide as a mother. A scholarly woman is mother of entire society.

            Rigveda 2.41.16: O provider of great knowledge, O my mother through the nourishment of knowledge that you have provided, our life is scattered without you. Please provide us direction.

            Rigveda 2.41.17: A scholarly woman, the entire life of society depends upon you. You provide us the right knowledge. May you bring knowledge to all segments of society.

            Rigveda 6.49.7: O scholarly woman, you purify our character. You have noble characteristics. You conduct noble actions. You have noble habits. We bow to your greatness that provides bliss to all.

            Rigveda 6.61.2: O scholarly woman, the way a river breaks away mightiest of hills and rocks, the scholarly woman destroys myths and hypes through her intellect alone. May we bow to women through our polite words and noble actions.

            Rigveda 6.61.3: O scholarly woman, destroy the evil inside us through your knowledge and character. Gift us with knowledge of Vedas. O performer of noble actions, you provide us stream of knowledge in same manner as a river provides stream of water.

            Rigveda 7.96.3: O scholarly noble woman brings only happiness in society. She makes us knowledgeable and alert. She guides us like the mantras in Yajna and teaches us use of everything in world.

            Rigveda 10.17.7: Those who desire the society to become noble and powerful, they respect woman and please her. Those who desire virtues respect woman and please her. Those who respect woman obtain bliss, knowledge and happiness.

            Atharvaveda 7.57.1: Whenever I am hurt by meanness of world or misunderstanding with others, a scholarly woman heals my wounds.

            O scholarly woman, I surrender to your intellect. Please continue to enlighten us all and create leadership of more intellectual women. Thy are the true motherly force.

            Raja

          • says

            Indeed Raja, you have put that perfectly.

            We are extremely pleased to see a scholarly woman discussing topics of Vedas and Darshan. We request Sudhaji to inspire more and more sisters to join discussions here and share their intellectual insights.

            When we will have around 50% participation from women in these discussions, know that the time of rapid transformation has arrived!

      Origin of the name of Indian state Bihar: The sign of Islamic Barbarism everywhere

      Medieval writer Minhaj al-Siraj records in the Tabakat-i-Nasiri that in 1198 AD Bakhtiyar Khalji committed a massacre in a town now known as Sharif (about 70 km away from Bodh Gaya).[30] Minhaj writes that the inhabitants were 100,000 Brahmins with shaven heads and all of them were killed. Later, Bakhtiyar learned that the town was a college, and the word for ‘college’ is bihar. Perhaps from this destruction came about the current usage of the word ‘Vihar’.

    dominions, and still
    preaches that these
    same dominions can
    and must be extended
    by war. There has never
    been an attempt in any
    age to challenge or even
    investigate the claims
    of Islam that has not
    been met with
    extremely harsh and
    swift repression.
    Provisionally, then, one
    is entitled to conclude
    that the apparent unity
    and confidence of the
    faith is a mask for a
    very deep and probably
    justifiable insecurity.
    That there are and
    always have been
    sanguinary feuds
    between different
    schools of Islam,
    resulting in strictly
    inter-Muslim
    accusations of heresy
    and profanity and in
    terrible acts of
    violence, naturally goes
    without saying.
    There is some
    question as to whether
    Islam is a separate
    religion at all. It initially
    fulfilled a need among
    Arabs for a distinctive
    or special creed, and is
    forever identified with
    their language and their
    impressive later
    conquests, which, while
    not as striking as those
    of the young Alexander
    of Macedonia, certainly
    conveyed an idea of
    being backed by a divine
    will until they petered
    out at the fringes of
    the Balkans and the
    Mediterranean. But
    Islam when examined is
    not much more than a
    rather obvious and ill-
    arranged set of
    plagiarisms, helping
    itself from earlier
    books and traditions as
    occasion appeared to
    require. Thus, far from
    being “born in the clear
    light of history,” as
    Ernest Renan so
    generously phrased it,
    Islam in its origins is
    just as shady and
    approximate as those
    from which it took its
    borrowings. It makes
    immense claims for
    itself, invokes
    prostrate submission
    or “surrender” as a
    maxim to its adherents,
    and demands deference
    and respect from
    nonbelievers into the
    bargain. There is nothing
    —absolutely nothing —
    in its teachings that can
    even begin to justify
    such arrogance and
    presumption.

      All religions take care to silence or to execute those who question them

      That indeed has been the problem with religions. Dharmic religions are (I would like to think) probably significantly less guilty of this crime against humanity. Plus they *actually* contain great spiritual/philosophical insights.

      No religious belief system can form the basis of killing another human being :-(

      • says

        True. While there have been debates and discussions among different schools of thoughts for centuries, it was all based on mutual respect and brotherhood. The culture here knew how to differ without hatred. Be in any ism – Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Jainism etc – the first and foremost necessity for Dharma was always Ahimsa. Second was Satya. That is why we have such a vast treasure of literature and philosophy.

        It is only after the Semitic eruption of blindness in name of religion that brutality became prominent.

    When the aspirant, as a result of

    can take one birth.s time, based

      This is the question which stroke to my mind also.One shouls think about it.Well!Presenting the following equation to a man standing on the ground:
      Gravitational force=contact force due t ot he ground
      So,in order to move upward you need to have positive force in the upward direction.This you can achieve by reducing your weight equal to zero but then contact force is also equal to zero.Or using some rocket launcher.But you require a net force in the upwar ddirection.
      Achieving Samadhi means chintan of paramatma.God cannot give you anything without work.So how can the fruit of Samadhi be flying huhuhu

      • Vinay Arya says

        When somebody beats me then I feel pain.The soul being separate from mind should not be hurt but mind should be hurt.But I see that I am hurted.So please tell me how is this happening?

        • Vinay Arya says

          I think that pain is entering inside the soul by some mechanism.But soul has to be different from the mind.Why?How can a stone talk,have feelings?Have seen a stone talking?I think medical science does not have answers to questions like this.They should understand that soul has to be different from mind.Because a stone cannot weep,talk,laugh.Feelings are not of mind but of soul.

  10. Mohammed says

    I just wonder why you great agniveers do not expose the fact that all the budhdhist were killed like rats in India under Hindu Rulers. Can you deny the testimony that the country of birth for Budhdhism has only 0.77% of the population as Budhdhists. Where did the remaining go?

    • KalBhairav says

      @Mohammed:

      all the budhdhist were killed like rats in India under Hindu Rulers.

      I would like evidence of this. If it is *indeed* true, then it is surely condemnable. Killing in the name of religion is wrong – just like killing an apostate. Would you agree?

      That being said, I personally do not know a lot about Buddhist theology. I *think* Buddhism may have held sway in India (and Sri Lanka and Pakistan and Afghanistan where your friends Taliban destroyed the Buddha’s statue after performing Friday Namaz…remember that episode?) but eventually faded away. There are many theories surrounding this:

      (1)Buddhism did not have the completeness that Hinduism had in terms of philosophy (as Agniveer’s article states).
      (2)Buddhism arose as a revolt against the ritualism that had gained ground amongst Hindu society. Hindu philosophers (such as Adi Shankara) gave an interpretation to Vedantic philosophy to specifically relegate ritualism and reassert the importance of Jnana (knowledge) of Brahman. Once this was done, it was probably natural that Indians returned back to their Vedic roots (just as we hope ALL present day Indians too would).
      (3)Until the appearance of Mohammedens on the scene (who specialized in killing the opposing camp as a means of convincing themselves and others that they possess a better theology), there was no place for killing/converting the non-believer. Hindu philosophers engaged in *intellectual debates* and convince others of their POV.

      I can proclaim without a tinge of Taqqiya in my heart that killing a fellow human-being because he/she doesnt *believe* in the same stuff that I do is ABSOLUTELY WRONG AND A GOD THAT DECREES THAT VIA A HOLY BOOK IS ALSO WRONG. Can you do the same and be a productive part of 21st century human civilization?

    • adolf says

      >>budhdhist were killed like rats in India under Hindu Rulers.
      Shankarachary defeated budhism and the religion went down because of non patronage of kings. I guess agniveer does not deny the existance of casteism and violence of hindu kings in name of religion.
      However if large scale violence was there and if hinduism justifies the killings then there would have been many books from budhists which indicate the same.
      But in violence whether in the past or in present none matches to abrahamic religions. perfect example is the hindu population of bangladesh. 22% to 9%.

      Thanks for your peacful religion.

    • truthseeker says

      @Mohammed
      Why do you always curse agniveer. Do not worry everything will be exposed but first priority to expose the dual standard of Muslim, Allah of Kuran who has shape & sits on throne on seventh sky, Idol worship by Muslim, Duplicate Mohamad who sexed with a child, Grave worship, truth of miracle stories contain in Hindu & muslim society. Our aim to establish a Vedic soceity who devoid of Idol worship like bowing head before stone building. Why do not you join hands with Agniveer?

      • Mohammed says

        Dear Truth Seeker,
        I am really touched with your reply! You have some good ideas; but I dout the the intentions very much? I do not agree with many of your ideas but I do agree atleast with your noble cause of eliminating Idol worship which we muslims are trying to teach non-muslims for 1400+ years. Why don’t you all agniveer demolish atleast one temple to prove your authenticity in the near future. OK, I know, your answer is that you guys are not like muslims who are all terrorists but you are very peaceful religion. However, I fail to understand when RSS and it’s subsidiary, BJP was arousing lakhs and lakhs of hindus for years together to demolish Babri Masjid and establish a Grand Ram temple, that time how you people forgot your noble cause and looked the other way rather than stopping the establishment of the the biggest monuments for idol worship in India? Could you please let me know what did you do to something happening in front of your eyes for years together which is antithesis to you? And the aftermath, when thousands of innocent muslims were buchered by the followers of so called peaceful religion ‘Hinduism’, that time how many of you came forward to propogate the peace?

        • truthseeker says

          @Mohammed
          Both Hindu & Muslim are Idol worshiper. Both have their excuses. But excuses means something have wrong in realty. All these practice in society like Idol worship, grave worship, going to particular place like Kaba, etc. are due to ignorance. To remove the ignorance first we need to spread Vedas. As Vedic knowledge will be established in society like in ancient time, all these practices will be stopped automatically. We need to spread knowledge in society for this. I think for this it is also compulsory for the people like Agniveer to tackle with corrupted & man made books like Kuran or Puran etc. Which are full of nonsense teaching like God completed the universe in six days than sit on his throne as Kuran says & other miracle stories. And it is also compulsory to tackle with people like jakir Naik who says God reside more in kaba than other places. According to Veda God is omnipresent he reside everywhere. & everyone has to face result of karma & souls are not created by God. For this we can not believe on Kuran teaching which prove God has shape & reside in particular place like kaba. Veda are devoid of such mis-conception. There are my many friends who were Idol worshiper, going to particular place for worship. But I never pressurize them to stop these practices. I always debate with them to make understand to them through logics, & It is only Veda which are devoid of superstitions, rituals, based on reasons, logics. Hindu looks the Muslim with doubt &have hate for them only reasons for this they know how Muslim terrorist like Gori, Gajni came in their country, made looting, raping etc. & it is people like Jakir Naik who lives in India but supporter of Duplicate Mohamad, terrorism & supporter of bloody Arabs. If you are true believer of God think with logics, reason and do not believe in any anything like Kuran, Veda, Puran, Mohamad without logics. God has given us mind & he inspired us always to find out the truth. God is unchangeable because he never need to change because he is perfect. Only imperfect changes according to situation. Veda is first and last teaching of God. & I am saying so because I have put knowledge of Vedas on logical test, never believed blindly. & If you find anything wrong in Veda put here .

          • Mohammed says

            Well, I can keep on arguing but it will be futile if yoor presumtions are misplaced. Your very first sentence “Both Hindu & Muslim are Idol worshiper” is wrong. Muslims DO NOT pray to any idol. Show me any mosque in any country where muslims pray to idols. Your second presumption that Quran is manmade whereas Vedas are divine, is again unpalatable. What proof you have? Islam is just 1400 years old and has a recorded history and we can see all the places in front of our eyes where Mohammed (PBUH) lived all his life, his janmabhumi and karmabhumi. Wheeras for Vedas, I do not know if they are man made are not. They have no recorded history.
            Further, your claim that Dr. Jakir Naik said that God resides in Kaba than other places is again false. Muslims go for Hajj and Umrah to visit Makka and Madina to see the place of origin of their religion. They do not worship any building. Kaba has no idol, nothing. It is just a landmark to realize the people that this is the place where prophet Ibrahim left his wife and infant son all alone without any water and food to fulfill God’s command and God rewarded that place to be the holiest of all lands. Millions of muslims come here to see the birh place of their religion and to understand the true meaning of ‘submission to the will of Allah (= Islam).

            And if anything which is Karor of years old. That does not means it is bad. God teaching (Veda) always applicable as law of gravitation applicable.

          • Mohammed says

            Law of gravitation, though existed since the origin of the earth, but was explained to humans by Newton in 1687 AD, i.e in the recorded history of human beings. Exactly same way, Islam existed since the origin of the earth, but was explained to human beings in 1400 years back by Mohammed (PBUH).

            Back in crore of years, there was no language invented, forget about invention of writing. How then vedas, if to be believed that these are world of god, are preserved in the original form till date? How??

            Dude – Wake up. Apply for a school. Sanskrit evolved as a language when human race started evolving. You can check any # of proofs u want. Sanskrit was used to write Vedas, unfortunately after giving rise to so many languages this language is growing extinct and people are finding it difficult to read Vedas.

            Regarding gravitation – glad that u accepted Newton invented it. I have read so many Islamic scholars attribute all discoveries to Quran on this site that I have lost faith in the intellect of this race. You restored it back partially.

          • truthseeker says

            Veda also called Shruti. that means knowledge which is achieved by listening. That is why in ancient time the people who having good intellectual are consider eligible of Vedic Knowledge.And scholar of Veda called Brahiman.Who knows the knowledge of Brahm(God, Creator).

            Brother roger

            I am not at all against the use of force against barbarism. In fact I believe terrorists and Jihadis should be dealt harshly, no confusion over this. But please tell me, what purpose is served by calling anyone pig? It only shows our frustration towards someone whom we cant reach. Frustration is the sign of helplessness, so we should not have it. Second thing is that it only makes the other more intolerant and violent. And third thing it contributes to the degradation of self in the journey of Moksha.

            I recently visited a village near Deoband, the center of Jihadis in India. I met with the Hindus there. They told that all the Muslims in west UP are converted from Rajput clans. They still love Rana Pratap and remember him with pride. They told that many villages of Muslims want to convert to Hinduism but they fear that Hindus will not accept them.

            So Brother its time to awake Hindus also who have been in deep sleep for a long. Muslims are fanatic, no doubt but its Hindus who remained inactive in this regard. So lets give Muslims chance and opportunity to come back to their home. Of course those who give fears of hell and Jihad should be dealt through Kshatriyattva as Rana and Shivaji did. But I think Kshatriyas have their roles to play in the fields and they should be prepared for that and Brahmanas should welcome everyone to Vedic Dharm through forums like Agniveer :)

            Lets follow Shri Krishna! He never said that Kansa is not his uncle or Kauravas and Shishupaal are not his Brothers. Shri Krishna loved them all and that is why he was just (Nyaaykari) to them in showing them the path they deserved :)

            The only difference is that Shri Krishna helped his Brothers through Kshatriyattva and we on Agniveer are doing it through Brahmanattva. And as you know, Brahman can turn Kshatriya anytime when needed- to help his Brothers get fruits of their deeds! Its just the matter of recognizing who is to be dealt with Brahmanattva and who with Kshatriyattva. Lets be prepared for both. Those for whom Brahmanattva fails, let Kshatriyas do their job. So Agniveer is a filter which absorbs intellectuals and allows all others to pass through it who need further processing through Kshatriyattva :)

            Brother I request you to read 7th chapter of Satyarth Prakash in which Swami Dayanand explains how “Daya (mercy)” and “Nyaay (justice)” are not different from each other. Its too enlightening

            I understand. But why get irritated and harm yourself? Saattvik Krodha (Manyu) is necessary for everyone. But it should be used as asset. It should destroy the enemy not you. The difference b/w Krodh and Manyu is that Krodh makes you blind, disturbs your mind, makes you dumb but Manyu makes your vision clear, concentrates your mind and channelizes your energies in one direction for the purpose of destroying evil.

    And one more reason why hindus cannot violently oppress buddhism is because Lord Buddha is considered as 1 of the 10 avatars of Lord Vishnu, the maintainer. And forget not, Nalanda and Taxila were destroyed by muslims invaders besides 30,000 other temples (of hindus, jains, and buddhists). More recently, the destruction of the Bamiyan buddhas only goes to show the virulence and toxic levels of intolerance that the cult of islam breeds. The Quwwat-ul-Islam is a great case in point. The rise of buddhism in India was checked by the great luminary saint Shankaracharya who through his arduous efforts brought the converted back into the hindu fold. His phenomenal debate with Mandan Mishra spanning over a great length of time makes make it amply clear as to how he did it (He did not wield a weapon like the ghazis did). BTW, your ghazis knew only one way to convert—forcefully at the edge of the sword.

      I have a simple question, how could you establish that Buddha was 1 of the 10 avatars of Lord Vishnu? I would love to know the methodology behind this hypothesis.

      Or should I conclude like this – some intelligent person among your forefathers invented this idea to confuse Bhuddists.

      I wonder if any Buddhist is reading this comment and can confirm if they also belive in Buddha being 1 of the 10 avatars of Lord Vishnu? Or it is just one sided love?

        If there is any book existed which claim Great Budha was Avtar that is bogus like Kuran. We believe God dont need to take Avtar or send prophets according to Veda. I say it publicly but you cant say God dont need to send prophet. You consider God a dependent of prophets.One question to you according to Kuran soul has to die one day, then what is the purpose of creation of soul? Why God need to invention of soul ? You have not given me answer that I can measure your stone in Hight & width that means it is Idol which you can say plain in shape & Hindu Idol are of different shape in size than muslim & you bow head before idols why dont you accept it?

But I am God believer and I think & according to veda by bowing head before stone we are showing god contain or limited only Masjid or Mandir or Kaba. You are opposing hindu to bow head before Idol but I oppose both because I seeing both are stone of different shape. I never like this stupid rituals bowing head before stones. That is why I say Veda are devoid rituals & superstitions that is why I prefer Veda and consider above from Kuran, Puran, Ramayan, Bible etc & I reject all illogical facts of these books. I never consider human perfect. Because perfect only God & only God worthy for worship not include others like what you say prophet, agent in God’s worship.We should not believe blindly in any person.

    Qery & answer from Ramswroop Ji,
    Query: Namaste Guruji, Do you think God send Prophet or God needs prophets to
    deliver his massage. & If god send prophet why there is difference in teaching
    of god. There is huge difference in Veda & Kuran teaching. Like Kuran advise
    Polygamy but veda not, Kuran advise meat eating but Veda prohibit meat eating,
    Kuran advise kill the kaffirs, & advise rituals like Idol Worship in the
    form of bowing head before Kaba building but Veda not, according to Kuran it is
    neccessary to believe in prophets with Allah to enter in heaven but But Veda
    talk about only God, no prophet & according to Veda it is not compulsory to
    believe in prophets to get Moksha. Why God change his mind when he send
    different teaching from his first teaching. That mean god is not perfect he is
    compelled to be change & need prophets. Although I believe in formless God not rituals like bowing head before any building like Kaba. Please Guide me & send your answer.

    Ans. Namasteji.
    According to Vedas, God is Almighty, i.e., He has unlimited power. So, to
    control the universe, He does not need any assistance, please. So, I am telling
    about eternal Vedic theory. If, keeping behind the Vedic culture, somebody
    accepts the need to have prophets, they may go ahead, please.
    So, a person is free to follow any path in which He believes and has faith in
    it. According to four Vedas which emanate directly from God, the knowledge is
    mentioned therein and Vedas very well tell that he who adopts the Vedic
    knowledge, is called Rishi-Muni and he should spread the knowledge to others to
    promote brotherhood in human-beings. Vedas tell to worship only one Formless,
    omnipresent, omniscient, Almighty God who creates, nurses and destroys the
    universe.

    Difference between Invention and Discoveries

    Newton never invented Gravitation as it was always there so he discovered it.

    Moreover laws of Nature cannot be invented they can only be discovered.Human beings discover things related to nature and if they try to invent out of already existing invention it results into destruction.Example Genetic modification of Plants and Humans by US and other EU countries.

    Same way till date all such inventions have resulted into devastation.We must live on inventiorns of nature and not of human beings and humans should dedicate their time in searching the inventions of nature and discovering them finally realizing Allah.

      The invention of god was already done by great rishis in satya yuga and to them VEDAS was revealed ,
      and VEDAS describes the true nature of ISWAR and his followers life style , later out of invented thing when further discoveries started by human beings out of already existing INVENTION OF VEDAS , it resulted to destruction in name of ALLAH and poor Muhammad was the last man to discover the EXISTING DIVINE ESSENCE BRAHMAN and lead to destruction of this world…..

      lastly your Abrahmic scientist were so poor that despite of rediscovering your ALLAH several times by Moses, JESUS and then Muhammad you still not have found a proof to define ALLAH (except from that of Quran ) ….. I made you understand these things from your own logic but still if you don’t accept VEDAS the Supreme relavation of god then you must be brain washed for several years to follow Quran and not to find a single error in it …

      1. If God has created souls and matter then question comes, why? When He was alone, for whom He created all this?

      2. “Allah can do whatever He wants” type God can never be perfect in knowledge and wisdom. The word “want” carries the meaning “desire” which is the sign of incompleteness and imperfection and it shows wavy character of God who can start wanting something at any instant. This way He does not remain unchangeable. A saturated entity like God should have/think already what He should have/think and should never have/think something which He should never have/think! Anything new to His knowledge or action makes His previous status less competent.

      Allah as per Quran is time bound as He wanted to create which He never thought/did before! He never created before, so His properties of remaining alone got changed and He does not remain God anymore :(

      Allah never created anything cause he never existed , and if you want to prove that he existed then prove me without quoting from Quran and Hadith…

      Allah was no one but demanded you muslims to pray without any partner and image , but see how weak he was that he needed help of human beings to invent a new religion…

      Allah bears no proof except Quran , and even his other texts differ from each another , SEE how imperfect allah is …

      Quran itself contradicts at several places by saying Allah formless and further states that Allah has form as he has created Adam from his own hand ….

    1. If God has created souls and matter then question comes, why? When He was alone, for whom He created all this?

    Because that is his duty,he has to perform some function the way everything has to .He creates matter,creates soul and thensome soul go in what you call moksha and some are destroyed and some are again put into body which he creates from matter.It is his dunction,function of almighty and he keeps on doing this.Only he keeps calculation of karma and how this cycle works.

    2. “Allah can do whatever He wants” type God can never be perfect in knowledge and wisdom.

    No you are twisitng the debate be clear.

    GOD is almighty and his function is creation,sustenance and destruction of this world and souls.He can destroy all souls or some soul based on your karma and similar way it is his choice to create or destory matter.So I do not see any problem in that.This cycle can only explained by him and that is why he is beyond our reach and that is why he is omnipotenet,omniscient and omnipresent.If we can understand his wisdom and knowledge then we all will become GOD so why don’t you accept vedic GOD is not strong like Allah.

    Allah as per Quran is time bound as He wanted to create which He never thought/did before! He never created before, so His properties of remaining alone got changed and He does not remain God anymore :(

    Please give reference of this and we will continue debate.

      So is this Allah’s first creation or He has created before too? If it is His first, all my questions are valid as Allah did everything for the first time and thus He is time bound. If Allah has created the universe and souls before too, please give its reference from Quran. Popular belief in Islam is that Allah has created for the first time and all the souls will be put in eternal hell or heaven. But here you seem to believe in rebirth as well when you say- “AND SOME ARE AGAIN PUT INTO BODY which he creates from matter”, but popular belief in Islam is that no rebirth happens :(

    No we take rebirth who said Quran does not believe on rebirth.And it is his duty to create and sustain and destroy everytime.Soul can be put in eternal hell means if u do wrong u keep on coming on this earth or some other lanet and will have bad form and life and if you do good you will be in heaven whcih is again on this earth or somewhere else in this universe but will be good.This is same as your karma theory So I do not see any difference.,ONly problem is your GOD is week and Allah is storng as he can create soul and destroy soul and so with matter esle he will not be power full.

      ok Tariq, answer one simple question for me, if Allah created matter, then prior to creating matter, what was surrounding him? Had Allah been omnipresent and pervading throughout the unlimited universe you would have been safe, but it is not the case with Allah since Allah has a fixed shape (not omnipresent and not pervading thru universe means He has a fixed shape).

      You may not know but even empty space around us is also a form or matter.

      Now two possibilities exist: Either matter created your Allah or both have been eternal, now you tell me which one do you believe in? Because we know that matter must be existing prior to Allah or it must be existing simultaneously with Allah, but Allah creating this matter does not make sense logically or even scientifically.

      Please answer?

        Please do read first page of Quran by Abudullah Ji referred by Zakir Naik Sahab.

        It clearly says Allah is omnicient,Omnipotent and omnipresent.It is always there.He is actually pervaded in all.It is like pervader and pervaded.Matter I agree might exists from long time but sometime he can create also if he want.Once destruction happens matter is changed into subatomic form and so souls are destroyed and vanishes as subtle energy.Now he can create new soul by using that energy the way he wants.Similarly he can create or modify or destroy matter.It is all happenining under him only.

        Think Allah is like human body where many things are going inside.In Hinduism Yogies can create energy from inside body by using prana in same was Allah can create anything and this is beyond human understanding.As he is everywhere he can use his prana to produce anything and destroy anything.I am follower of Ramdev and you must learn some Yoga and PRana concept also.

        Hope I have answered your reply and you will accpet that Allah is all powerfull but GOD of vedas is just a Manager.

        You may not know but even empty space around us is also a form or matter.

        Yes Matteris everywhere but without form at sub atmoci level also it is there.

        Now two possibilities exist: Either matter created your Allah or both have been eternal, now you tell me which one do you believe in? Because we know that matter must be existing prior to Allah or it must be existing simultaneously with Allah, but Allah creating this matter does not make sense logically or even scientifically.

        No Matter cannot create Allah as Allah is the subtlest of all and he permeates the matter.Matter is always there in different forms but Allah can produce more or change or destroy it at his will.Here destruction means he can digest it and remove it from cycle of death or birth.Same way he can create matter(change form) which he took or you can say recycle the matter to give some other form.So he can either change/create/destroy matter.

        See you are thinking from Modern science view where it says matter cannot be destroyed it just changes form.We need to understand that modern science is way beyond what Quran says and still Modern science has to work for millions of year to reach the science of Quran.Basically alll have to follow ISLAM for understanding the concept and experience this.

        Hope I am able to put my point that matter can be create/changed/destroyed and we should not go just by modern science else science will win not vedas and Quran.

        Good luck and do reply

          Brother Naik claims that Allah is NOT omnipresent, and here you are saying that Allah is omnipresent, why are you lying for? Your lie is caught here, if you do not believe me, watch the video below where Naik answers you clearly saying that Allah is NOT omnipresent, and kindly apologize for lying.

          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWoAhwafB9c

          matter is never destroyed or created, not only Vedas say this BUT ALSO MODERN SCIENCE.

          yes, matter can be converted to different forms, BUT IT CAN NEVER BE CREATED NOR DESTROYED.

          So Allah never created matter, if He did, then brother tell me since Allah is not omnipresent, what was surrounding him prior to him creating matter???

          You assume Allah is omnipresent and I thank you for that because you are starting to recognize the true Allah as per Vedas, wheras fanatics like Naik deny this concept.

          ok now you tell me since you agreed matter is everywhere in sub atomic form, did Allah create this matter or did it exist along with Allah since eternity? If Allah created this matter (when I say matter, I mean the most primitive form of matter, not its converted form), then what was Allah standing on? What was Allah surround by?

            Here we do not agree with Zakir Naik.He is right around 90%

            See Allah was everywhere and matter can be there or cannot be there.He can create matter if he require out of his prana which was inside him.

            We have different school of thought in ISLAM where Allah is considered omnipresent Zakior Bhai is not aware of all but he says that we have different school of thoughts on this.

            I am sure you will agree as Allah is all powerfull so he can create matter else he will not be omnipotenet.

            See we do not have to give and proofs here.

            Lets limit our discussion to

            ALLAH can create matter or change matter is my point that is why he is omnipotenet but your vedic GOD cannot create matter so he is not powerfull.Lets focus on this now.

        Hilali: Indeed your Lord is Allâh, Who created the heavens and the earth in Six Days , and then He Istawâ (rose over) the Throne (really in a manner that suits His Majesty). He brings the night as a cover over the day, seeking it rapidly, and (He created) the sun, the moon, the stars subjected to His Command. Surely, His is the Creation and Commandment. Blessed be Allâh, the Lord of the ‘Alamîn (mankind, jinns and all that exists)!
        Comments:-
        In beginning Allah was standing & sit on throne after completion of Earth & sky, moon, sun etc. That means Allah also stand, sleep, sit, eat. that means he has shape & he was not omnipresent because he was not on throne when he was making Earth, sky etc. After completion of these he sits on throne.

        If God has created souls and matter then question comes, why? When He was alone, for whom He created all this?

        It is his function to create/destroy and recreate whatever he wants so he is most powerfull.If he cannot destory or create matter and soul then he will not be powerfull he will just be dummny manager who manages show.The way Vedic GOD is like Manager.

        Because that is his duty, he has to perform some function the way everything has to.
        Comments:
        Tarique you are not clear here suppose If one say that you have certain duties towards your parents, nation, children, wife etc. That means they are existed. If they were not existed the question of duty towards them did not arise. As you saying Soul & matter is not eternal then for whom Allah has to perform certain duties. Duty means something other also existed for whom one has to do certain things. Please think logically & response.

        “See Allah has a function the way stmach has function of digestion and always try to digest same way allah function is of creating.sustaiing and destroying soul and matter based on karma .It is his funtion to govern souls based on their karma.So he is most powerfull”

        Please put your point in some strong manner and I will reply in same.

        Thanks for your patience and trying to prove vedic GOD is powerfull.I agree he is nice Manager but not Powerfull like allah.

        So Allah can create Matter and soul and can destroy them and sustain them

          There is no use of digestion system if we do not put material in it. That means materiel should be available. & How law of karma works in matter case. And please do not talk against Kuran & according to kuran soul never destroyed & it goes for eternal hell & heaven for their karma & if i am not wrong according to kuran And for powerfulness of Allah please put some light on the Kuran Verse as Follows. I am interested in this great verse of Kuran.

    Allah is a man made supreem concept.muhammad can dream to supreem imagine and creates ALLAH. The simple common things all humans can desire high power,high knowledge and high leave.The muhammad dreams a ALLAH, Anybody can dreams its own supreem almighty.All mans are different gods.But problems was create myself god is a only one god and others god are not god.second my ego was hurt because my gods only one followers that is me.Then i started to my ego full of range to destroy others god And say my god is true to come and accept my god.

  22. Dipankar says

    A simple common sense why allah sent a message? It was a supreem power and supreem authority he also contact directly to man and talking man to man.why he need a prophet and a book.This allah is not daring to face a common man because he afraid and it was not a powerful because he needs a prophets. Why allah need a messanger? and why allah need a book? Any needed are half, allah also be half.A common sense allah has counted a messangers? Muhammad is a last messanger?why? this counting man made, not allah made because allah is infinite and countless.

  23. ShivajiMaharaj says

    Discussion on idol worship is futile with those that believe in symbolism but find it to be an issue when a non-muslim indulges in symbolisms. If Hindus did indeed believe that an idol is God, our dharma would have seized to exist the moment the Somnath temple was sacked the first time by the desert marauders. I can add many many more examples of the desert barbarians indulging in destruction of temples and idols. The average Hindu does know that while an idol is symbolic of divinity, the true divinity pervades everywhere.

    But let us contrast this with what would happen if a natural disaster strikes and the kaba and the grand mosque at mecca cease to exist. Muslims across the world will go on rampage and importantly many hardcore Muslims would commit suicide,as,in their opinion, this event would indicate that the fidelity of Allah / muhammad stands compromised. Islam cannot exist without kaba and the grand mosque at mecca but Hinduism continues to thrive despite the many times that the city of Kashi was sacked by the barbaric invaders.

    The muslims here like Mohammameds and Tariqs will not accept it but the symbol of kaba is dearer to a muslim than a Shiva Ling or the Sudarshan Chakra are to a Hindu. As I mentioned above, the average Hindu does believe that the Sarvesh prevails all over the universe.

    Six days are not todays days One Day of Allah has some millions of Years so please do not consider it as normal one day.

    I think rest you can understand it is in allegorical form.Say night as a cover over day day means day and night created and then sun,moon etc/Here day and night does not relate to normal day and night they relate to sub atmoic particles of universe which have positive and negative energies.So please understand Quran as most advanced book of its time.It is not taken as normal book All words have different meanings like one word can have menaing relatd to GOD,Same can be related to GOD and soul and same can be related to science.So please convert to ISLAM and take lessons from some good Moulawi and have your family also follow Quran and then you can understand the true menaing of Great Muhammad Sahab(PBUH) a great scientist or father of all Great Shcolars.

    That means allah had different sun & moon from Humans. & he is not powerful he takes million of years to made universe so this is wrong saying that Allah can create universe just less than moment as roughly said. & after creation of Sun, Moon etc Allah sits on his throne that means he has shape & he was not omnipresent because during the process of creation he was not on his throne. & From the creation of Universe everyone know God has made the universe it not the work of man & then what special in this verse you find. & what different Mohamad discovered which was not mention earlier scripture like Veda.

      3. Can Allah change the writings of Lohe Mehfooz which He himself has written?

Can I look forward to posts trashing Abrahamic religions on your website? Or is your polemic going to be only directed on Hinduism?

    Muhammad
    Ishwar do not neet to create soul and matter because along with Ishwar (suprem soul) all the souls and matter are eternal. Soul does not die, it only chnages the body and that we call death. So if something does not die (always present) then question of creating it does not exist.

  36. Vis8 says

    The Buddha told how to control distracting and unwholesome thoughts in the discourse, Vitakkasanthana Sutta:

    Essentially, we need to try, a step at a time, the following when confronting an unwholesome thought within:

    1.Think of a good thing. In this case, the easiest is to think that not doing this bad thing is good in itself.

    If the above attempt fails, and the unwholesome thoughts come up again, go to number 2:

    2.Think of the bad repercussions this thought will bring; most of the time, these repercussions will be upon yourself (the law of karma).

    If No. 2 is still not working, go to No. 3 and so-fourth:

    3.Don’t think about it. (Find something else to do).

    4.“Relax” distracting thought formations: As soon as you see an unwholesome thought, stop that thought from forming other thoughts. Essentially the Buddha said to tell yourself to gradually slow down the mental (and physical) mess that this unwholesome thought is creating in you.

    5. Fifth and final try: With clenched-teeth, tongue on the palate of the mouth, and fight evil mind with good mind. Just say “STOP” to yourself and stop that unnecessary thought.

    The Buddha stopped here, so it means that No. 5 should work… if it is not, you are not trying hard enough.

    Note: The above cannot be applied if we are not aware that we are having an unwholesome thought. We need to be aware, at every moment, of what we are doing (i.e. thinking). This is the basic frame of mindfulness that the Buddha told us to cultivate. It is not easy, because the mind tends to drift when you are not mindful, but this essential “basic mindfulness” need to be there.

  37. Satya jigyasu says

    Hi agniveer , i have a question for u,
    Gautam buddh ishwar ko nahi manta tha. Usne ved bhi nahi padhe the. To vah yogi kaise ho sakta hai ? Usmen vairagya kaise ho sakta hai ?

    • KalBhairav says

      @Satya:

      Gautam buddh ishwar ko nahi manta tha.

      I doubt if this is true. Buddha instructed his followers not to speculate on metaphysical issues such as eternity of universe, existence of souls, etc. for it was bound to lead to madness/vexation.

      Usne ved bhi nahi padhe the.

      In my view, literal scriptural knowledge of the Vedas is not the point of Hinduism. Remember Hinduism is about principles and not about books or personalities. You delete Buddha, you delete Buddhism. You delete old Mo, you delete Mohammedanism. You delete JC, you delete Xity. But you delete Rama or Krishna, it doesnt affect Sanatana Dharma.

      Also, it is not completely true that Buddha was unaffected by Hindu thought. Many Upanishads pre-dated Buddha. He was highly influenced by these and preached the 4NT/8FP. In my view, Buddha was more of a psychiatrist who was focussed on mitigating the problems in this life. He said dont worry about an afterlife. This is how indirectly many Hindus view their own religion also. Dharma impels them to do good and benefit in THIS life itself.

  38. Satya jigyasu says

    The Vedic law is-
    Jo ishwar ko nahi janta/manta uski indriya vash mein nahi ho sakti. Isliye gautam buddh yogi nahi tha. Usmein vairagya nahi tha. Agniveer team pl answer.

      Let it be the copyright of fanatics of issuing Fatwas on others’ beliefs and status. We should avoid doing this.

      Knowing/believing Eeshvar is not at all stating that I know/believe in Eeshvar. A person believes in Eeshvar to the extent that he/she behaves morally to self and others. There cant be any absolute theist or atheist in the world. So we should focus on improving our level instead of judging others’.

    Hello agniveer ji, please don’t call gautam buddha a mahatma . He did not believe on ishwar. His senses weren’t on control. It would be against Arya samaj rules to praise anyone who was an atheist. You wrote that there is no evidence buddha being an atheist. But there is no evidence buddha being a theist too.

    • GOD IS GREAT says

      My sympathies with those Muslims. If a Muslim behaves peacefully and want universal brotherhood without any biases – then he is a true Momin. But problem is: These are rarely available. If Muslims want peace to prevail from core of their heart – NOT THRU VIOLENCE, nothing better than that. But, there are many who just conclude that NON believers of Islam shall enter hell eternally. Interestingly, Some Muslim kills 10^88 innocent people but is saved completely from Allah’s wrath just bcoz he is a Muslim and says SORRY. If a Non muslim kills an ant – he goes to hell eternally. for he does not believe in Islam. If Quran is interpreted this way, PEACE CANNOT PREVAIL ON EARTH. You can see http://agniveer.com/2623/islam-peace/ to know true Islam. If a Muslim becomes true Muslim as said there; he / she need not worry at all.

      But I did not get your logic. How Can GOD be compared to Nehru… The rules of GOD need not change at all. And there are 1.24 Lac prophets => GOD was cheated so many times by humans. Quran demands surrender before Allah. That Allah can do anything and everything & his messages are changed – this shows Allah is dumb. Allah shall not be mistaken as a normal human. His message shall come in beginning NOT in end. How can he be unjust to punish those who weren’t alive when he revealed? And Allah’s msg changed 1.24 Lac times; what is guarantee that it won’t change now? A magician will come and say – I am prophet. He will do miracles & write a book indicating I am final messenger. He will say Quran is wrong. Does Quran has any solution? By final messenger, it is clear that all those who don’t learn shall be punished. Why after Mohammed, evil still prevailed? Why were Hitlers born – what’s use of last messenger if world still does not learn? Within a decade of Mohammed’s death – evil should have sufficed – that’s what last messenger actually means. If Allah is sleeping for 14 centuries, he must be awakened. There were many well wishers of mankind after Mohammed – calling Mohammed last messenger…

      • GOD IS GREAT says

        There were many well wishers of mankind after Mohammed – calling Mohammed as last messenger is their insult.

        Conclusion: Someone must correct the Quran for the benefit of mankind and society. Those Muslims which you are talking would be happy & so would be Non Muslims. That is the path of happines. Let’s end religious rivalry permanently this way.

        And by the way, please get years right: Origin of Vedas: 1.96Billion years under hearts of first Rishis.

    “कनिष्क के काल में पहले पहल बुद्ध की प्रतिमा ( मूर्ति ) बनाई गई | महायान के प्रचार के साथ जहाँ बुद्ध प्रतिमाओं की पूजा अर्चना बड़े ठाट -बाट से होने लगी , वहाँ सैकड़ों बोधिसत्वों की भी प्रतिमायें बनने लगीं | इन बोधिसत्वों को उन्होंने ब्राह्मणों के देवी देवताओं का काम सौंपा | उन्होंने तारा , प्रज्ञा पारमिता , विजया आदि अनेक देवियों की भी कल्पना की | जगह-जगह इन देवियों और बोधिसत्वों के लिए बड़े-बड़े विशाल मन्दिर बन गये | इनके बहुत से स्तोत्र आदि भी बनने लगे | इस बाढ़ में इन्होंने यह ख्याल न किया कि हमारे इस काम से किसी प्राचीन परम्परा या किसी भिक्षु नियम का उल्लंघन होता है | जब किसी ने दलील पेश की तो कह दिया — विनय नियम तुच्छ स्वार्थ के पीछे मरनेवाले हीनयानियों के लिए हैं , सारी दुनियाँ की मुक्ति के लिये मरने-जीनेवाले बोधिसत्व को इस की वैसी पाबन्दी नहीं हो सहती | उन्होंने हीनयान के सूत्रों से अधिक महात्म्यवाले अपने सूत्र बनाये | सैकड़ों पृष्ठों के सूत्रों का पाठ जल्दी नहीं हो सकता था इसलिये उन्होंने हर एक सूत्र की दो तीन पंक्तियों में छोटी-छोटी धारणी बनाई | इन्हीं धारणियों को और संक्षिप्त करके मन्त्रों की सृष्टि हुई | इस प्रकार धारणियों , बोधिसत्वों , उनकी अनेक दिव्य शक्तियों तथा प्राचीन परम्परा और पिटक की निस्संकोच की जाती — उलट-पुलट से उत्साहित हो , गुप्त साम्राज्य के आरम्भिक काल से हर्षवर्धन के समय तक मञ्जु श्री मूल कल्प , गुह्य समाज और चक्र संवर आदि कितने ही तंत्रों की सृष्टि की गई | पुराने निकायों ने अपेक्षाकृत सरलता अपनी मुक्ति के लिये अर्हद् यान और प्रत्येक बुद्धयान का रास्ता खुला रखा था | महायान ने सबके लिये सुदुश्चर बुद्धयान का ही एकमात्र रास्ता रखा | आगे चलकर कठिनाई को दूर करने के लए ही उन्होंने धारणियों , बोधिसत्वों की पूजाओं का आविष्कार किया | इस प्रकार जब आसान दिशाओं का मार्ग खुलने लगा , तब उसके अविष्कारकों की भी संख्या बढ़ने लगी | मञ्जु श्री मूल कल्प ने तन्त्रों के लिये रास्ता खोल दिया | गुह्य समाज ने अपने भैरवी चक्र के शराब , स्त्री सम्भोग तथा मंत्रोच्चारण से उसे और भी आसान कर दिया | यह मत महायान के भीतर से ही उत्पन्न हुआ , किन्तु पहले इसका प्रचार भीतर ही भीतर होता रहा | भैरवी चक्र की सभी कार्यवाहियाँ गुप्त रखी जाती थीं | प्रवेशाकांक्षी को कितने ही समय तक उम्मीदवारी करनी पड़ती थी | यह मन्त्रयान ( तन्त्रयान , वज्रयान ) सम्प्रदाय इस प्रकार सातवीं शताब्दी तक गुप्तरीति से चलता रहा | इसके अनुयायी बाहर से अपने को महायानी ही कहते थे | महायानी भी अपना पृथक विनय पिटक नहीं बना सके थे इसलिये इनके भिक्षु लोग सर्वास्तिवाद आदि निकायों में में दीक्षा लेते थे | आठवीं शताब्दी में भी , जबकि नालन्दा महायान का गढ़ थी , वहाँ के भिक्षु सर्वास्तिवाद विनय के अनुयायी थे | तन्त्र के प्रचुर प्रचार से भिक्षुओं को सर्वास्तिवाद को , बोधिसत्वचर्या में महायान की और भैरवी चक्र में वज्रयान की दीक्षा लेनी पड़ती थी |
    आठवीं शताब्दी में एक प्रकार से भारत के सभी बौद्ध सम्प्रदाय वज्रयान गर्भित महायान के अनुयायी हो गए थे | बुद्ध की सीधी-सीधी शिक्षाओं से उनका विश्वास उठ चुका था और वे मनघड़ंत हजारों लोकोक्तर कथाओं पर विश्वास करते थे | बाहर से भिक्षु के कपड़े पहनने पर भी वे भीतर से गुह्य समाजी थे | बड़े-बड़े विद्वान और प्रतिभाशाली कवि आधे पागल हो , चौरासी सिद्धों में दाखिल हो सन्ध्या भाषा में निर्गुण गान करते थे | सातवी शताब्दी में उड़ीसा के राजा इन्द्रभूति और उसके गुरु सिद्ध अनङ्ग वज्र तथा दूसरे पण्डित सिद्ध , स्त्रियों को ही मुक्तिदात्री प्रज्ञा , पुरुषों को ही मुक्ति का ‘उपाय’ और शराब को ही अमृत सिद्ध करने में अपनी पण्डिताई और सिद्धाई खर्च कर रहे थे | आठवीं शताब्दी से बारहवीं शताब्दी तक का बौद्ध धर्म वस्तुतः वज्रयान या भैरवी चक्र का धर्म था | महायान ने ही धारणियों और पूजाओं से निर्वाण को सुगम कर दिया था , वज्रयान ने उसे एकदम सहज कर दिया इसलिए आगे चलकर वज्रयान -“सहजयान”-भी कहा जाने लगा | ”
    “वज्रयान के विद्वान प्रतिभाशाली कवि चौरासी सिद्ध ……..लोग शराब में मस्त , खोपड़ी का प्याला लिए श्मशान या विकट जंगलों में रहा करते थे | जन साधारण को जितना ये फटकारते थे उतना ही लोग इनके पीछे दौड़ते थे | ये “सिद्ध” लोग खुल्लमखुल्ला स्त्रियों औए शराब का उपभोग करते थे | राजा अपनी कन्याओं तक को इन्हें प्रदान करते थे |……….इन पाँच शताब्दियों में धीरे-धीरे एक तरह से सारी भारतीय जनता इनके चक्कर में पड़कर काम व्यसनी , मद्यप और मूढ़ विश्वासिनी बन गई थी | राजा लोग जहाँ राजरक्षा के लिये पलटनें रखते थे वहाँ उसके लिये किसी सिद्धाचार्य तथा उसके सैकड़ों तान्त्रिक अनुयायियों की भी एक बहु व्यय -साध्य पलटन रखा करते थे | देव मन्दिरों में बराबर ही बलि पूजा चढ़ती रहती थी | लाभ-सत्कार द्वारा उन्युक्त होने से ब्राह्मणों और दूसरे धर्मानुयायियों ने भी बहुत अंश में इनका अनुसरण किया | ”

    अन्धविश्वास इतना !!! — ” भारतीय जनता जब इस प्रकार दुराचार और मूढ़ विश्वास के पंक में कंठ तक डूबी हुई थी | ब्राह्मण भी जाति भेद के विष बीज को शताब्दियों तक बोकर , जाती टुकड़े-टुकड़े बाँटकर घोर गृह कलह पैदा कर चुके थे | ………….तुर्कों ने मन्दिरों की अपार सम्पत्ति को ही नहीं लूटा , बल्कि अगणित दिव्य शक्तियों की मालिक देव मूर्तियों को भी चकनाचूर कर दिया | तान्त्रिक लोग , मन्त्र , बलि और पुरश्चरण का प्रयोग करते ही रह गये | किन्तु उससे तुर्कों का कुछ नहीं बिगड़ा | …………जिस विहार के पालवंशी राजा ने राज्य रक्षा के लिये उडंत पुरी का तान्त्रिक विहार बनाया था उसे मुहम्मद बिन बख्त्यार उद्दीन ( मुहम्मद बिन बख्त्यार ) ने सिर्फ दो सौ घुड़सवारों से जीत लिया | नालन्दा की अद्भुत शक्तिशाली तारा टुकड़े-टुकड़े करके फेंक दी गई | नालन्दा और विक्रमशिला के सैकड़ों तान्त्रिक भिक्षु तलवार के घाट उतर दिये गये |”…….

    राहुलजी का रक्तरोदन — ” लेकिन प्रश्न होता है कि तुर्कों ने तो बौद्धों और ब्राह्मणों , दोनों के ही मन्दिरों को तोड़ा , पुरोहितों को मारा , फिर क्या वजह है जो ब्राह्मण भारत में अब भी है और बौद्ध न रहे | बात यह है कि ब्राह्मण धर्म में गृहस्थ भी धर्म के अगुआ हो सकते थे , बौद्ध भिक्षुओं पर ही धर्म प्रचार और धार्मिक ग्रंथों की रक्षा का भार था | ब्राह्मणों में भी यद्यपि वाममार्गी थे किन्तु सभी नहीं | बौद्धों में तो सब वज्रयानी थे | इनके भिक्षुओं की प्रतिष्ठा उनके सदाचार और विद्या पर न थी , बल्कि उनके तथा उनके मन्त्रों और देवताओं की अद्भुत शक्तियों पर थी | तुर्कों की तलवारों ने इन अद्भुत शक्तियों का दिवाला निकाल दिया | जनता समझने लगी ; हम धोखे में थे | इसका फल यह हुआ कि जब बौद्ध भिक्षुओं ने अपने टूटे मठों और मन्दिरों को फिर से मरम्मत कराना चाहा तब इनके लिये इन्हें रूपये नहीं मिले | वस्तुतः इन आचारहीन शराबी भिक्षुओं को उस समय — जबकि तुर्कों के अत्याचार के कारण लोगों को एक-एक पैसा बहुमूल्य प्रतीत होता था — कौन रुपयों की थैली सौंपता ? फल यह हुआ कि बौद्ध अपने टूटे धर्मस्थलों की मरम्मत कराने में सफल न हो सके और इसप्रकार उनके भिक्षु अशरण हो गये |
    ब्राह्मणों में यह बात न थी | उनमे सबके सब वाममार्गी न थे | कितने ही अब भी अपनी विद्या और आचरण के कारण पूजे जाते थे | इसलिए उन्हें फिर अपने मन्दिरों को बनवाने के लिये रूपये मिल गये |”…….

    श्री राहुल सांकृन्तायन जी स्वयं अपने को बौद्धमत अनुयायी कहते हैं अतः हमने उनकी – “बुद्धचर्या” – की भूमिका से यह विस्तृत उद्धरण यह दिखाने के लिये दिया है कि बौद्धमत के नाम से नास्तिकता का प्रचार होने पर उसका नैतिक दृष्टि से कैसा भयंकर परिणाम हुआ | जिस बौद्धमत के विषय में यह दावा किया जाता है कि उससे अधिक सदाचार का प्रतिपादक कोई धर्म नहीं , उसमे श्री राहुल जी के ऊपर उद्धृत लेखानुसार सबके सब वज्रयानी व् वाममार्गी , शराबी बन जाएँ और उनके व्यभिचार तथाकथित सिद्धों का इतना अधिक मान हो इसके कारण पर गंभीरता से विचार करने की आवश्यकता है | हमारे विचार में तो इस नैतिक पतन का कारण स्पष्ट है | जब कर्म फलदाता न्यायकारी परमेश्वर की सत्ता पर कोई विश्वास न हो , जब नित्य आत्मा की सत्ता पर विशवास न हो , जब धर्म के लिये मुख्य प्रमाण वेदों पर विशवास न हो तो उसका स्वाभाविक परिणाम स्वेच्छाचारिता और नैतिक पतन है | इसमें आश्चर्य की कोई बात नहीं |

    सनातन धर्मरक्षक महान सम्राट – पुष्यमित्र शुंग

    मोर्य वंश के महान सम्राट चन्द्रगुप्त के पोत्र महान अशोक (?) ने कलिंग युद्ध के पश्चात् बौद्ध धर्म अपना लिया। अशोक अगर राजपाठ छोड़कर बौद्ध भिक्षु बनकर धर्म प्रचार में लगता तब वह वास्तव में महान होता । परन्तु अशोक ने एक बौध सम्राट के रूप में लग भाग २० वर्ष तक शासन किया। अहिंसा का पथ अपनाते हुए उसने पूरे शासन तंत्र को बौद्ध धर्म के प्रचार व प्रसार में लगा दिया। अत्यधिक अहिंसा के प्रसार से भारत की वीर भूमि बौद्ध भिक्षुओ व बौद्ध मठों का गढ़ बन गई थी। उससे भी आगे जब मोर्य वंश का नौवा अन्तिम सम्राट व्रहद्रथ मगध की गद्दी पर बैठा ,तब उस समय तक आज का अफगानिस्तान, पंजाब व लगभग पूरा उत्तरी भारत बौद्ध बन चुका था । जब सिकंदर व सैल्युकस जैसे वीर भारत के वीरों से अपना मान मर्दन करा चुके थे, तब उसके लगभग ९० वर्ष पश्चात् जब भारत से बौद्ध धर्म की अहिंसात्मक निति के कारण वीर वृत्ति का लगभग ह्रास हो चुका था, ग्रीकों ने सिन्धु नदी को पार करने का साहस दिखा दिया।
    सम्राट व्रहद्रथ के शासनकाल में ग्रीक शासक मिनिंदर जिसको बौद्ध साहित्य में मिलिंद कहा गया है ,ने भारत वर्ष पर आक्रमण की योजना बनाई। मिनिंदर ने सबसे पहले बौद्ध धर्म के धर्म गुरुओं से संपर्क साधा,और उनसे कहा कि अगर आप भारत विजय में मेरा साथ दें तो में भारत विजय के पश्चात् में बौद्ध धर्म स्वीकार कर लूँगा। बौद्ध गुरुओं ने राष्ट्र द्रोह किया तथा भारत पर आक्रमण के लिए एक विदेशी शासक का साथ दिया।
    सीमा पर स्थित बौद्ध मठ राष्ट्रद्रोह के अड्डे बन गए। बोद्ध भिक्षुओ का वेश धरकर मिनिंदर के सैनिक मठों में आकर रहने लगे। हजारों मठों में सैनिकों के साथ साथ हथियार भी छुपा दिए गए।
    दूसरी तरफ़ सम्राट व्रहद्रथ की सेना का एक वीर सैनिक पुष्यमित्र शुंग अपनी वीरता व साहस के कारण मगध कि सेना का सेनापति बन चुका था । बौद्ध मठों में विदेशी सैनिको का आगमन उसकी नजरों से नही छुपा । पुष्यमित्र ने सम्राट से मठों कि तलाशी की आज्ञा मांगी। परंतु बौद्ध सम्राट वृहद्रथ ने मना कर दिया।किंतु राष्ट्रभक्ति की भावना से ओत प्रोत शुंग , सम्राट की आज्ञा का उल्लंघन करके बौद्ध मठों की तलाशी लेने पहुँच गया। मठों में स्थित सभी विदेशी सैनिको को पकड़ लिया गया,तथा उनको यमलोक पहुँचा दिया गया,और उनके हथियार कब्जे में कर लिए गए। राष्ट्रद्रोही बौद्धों को भी ग्रिफ्तार कर लिया गया। परन्तु वृहद्रथ को यह बात अच्छी नही लगी।
    पुष्यमित्र जब मगध वापस आया तब उस समय सम्राट सैनिक परेड की जाँच कर रहा था। सैनिक परेड के स्थान पर ही सम्राट व पुष्यमित्र शुंग के बीच बौद्ध मठों को लेकर कहासुनी हो गई।सम्राट वृहद्रथ ने पुष्यमित्र पर हमला करना चाहा परंतु पुष्यमित्र ने पलटवार करते हुए सम्राट का वध कर दिया। वैदिक सैनिको ने पुष्यमित्र का साथ दिया तथा पुष्यमित्र को मगध का सम्राट घोषित कर दिया।
    सबसे पहले मगध के नए सम्राट पुष्यमित्र ने राज्य प्रबंध को प्रभावी बनाया, तथा एक सुगठित सेना का संगठन किया। पुष्यमित्र ने अपनी सेना के साथ भारत के मध्य तक चढ़ आए मिनिंदर पर आक्रमण कर दिया। भारतीय वीर सेना के सामने ग्रीक सैनिको की एक न चली। मिनिंदर की सेना पीछे हटती चली गई । पुष्यमित्र शुंग ने पिछले सम्राटों की तरह कोई गलती नही की तथा ग्रीक सेना का पीछा करते हुए उसे सिन्धु पार धकेल दिया। इसके पश्चात् ग्रीक कभी भी भारत पर आक्रमण नही कर पाये। सम्राट पुष्य मित्र ने सिकंदर के समय से ही भारत वर्ष को परेशानी में डालने वाले ग्रीको का समूल नाश ही कर दिया। बौद्ध धर्म के प्रसार के कारण वैदिक सभ्यता का जो ह्रास हुआ,पुन:ऋषिओं के आशीर्वाद से जाग्रत हुआ। डर से बौद्ध धर्म स्वीकार करने वाले पुन: वैदिक धर्म में लौट आए। कुछ बौद्ध ग्रंथों में लिखा है की पुष्यमित्र ने बौद्दों को सताया .किंतु यह पूरा सत्य नही है। सम्राट ने उन राष्ट्रद्रोही बौद्धों को सजा दी ,जो उस समय ग्रीक शासकों का साथ दे रहे थे।
    पुष्यमित्र ने जो वैदिक धर्म की पताका फहराई उसी के आधार को सम्राट विक्र्मद्वित्य व आगे चलकर गुप्त साम्रराज्य ने इस धर्म के ज्ञान को पूरे विश्व में फैलाया।

    Hi Agniveer, This article is nice. Note down that in the lines “Swami Dayanand succinctly explained the flaw in lines of Vedas:”, it would be better if you add a comma between the word flaw and in lines of Vedas. Because it reads like there is a flaw in lines of Vedas and Swami is explaining it.

    kindly,
    Vimal.

  48. Mantra Drishta Rishi says

    रुचं ब्राह्मं जनयन्तो देवा अग्रे तदब्रुवन यस्त्वैवं ब्राह्मणों विद्यात तस्य देवा असन वशे ।
    इस मंत्र से सिद्ध होता है की गौतम बुद्ध वैराग्यवान नहीं था। उसकी मन आदि इन्द्रिय संयम में नहीं थी। महर्षि दयानन्द जी ने कभी भी गौतम बुद्ध के साथ महात्मा शब्द का प्रयोग नहीं किया । अतैव हमें भी नहीं करना चाहिए। मनु स्मृति की माने तो गौतम बुद्ध शूद्र था। I challenge everyone to prove gautam buddha a Vairagyavan person.

  49. Patient of Negative symptoms of Schizophrenia says

    I emulated gautam buddha’s Apar and Par vairagya. that caused dopaminergic chemical imbalance in my brain. So i request agniveer ji to stop praising gautam buddha.

  50. Harshavardhan Deole says

    This article is another attempt to swallow other faith’s such as Buddha Dhamma. As a Buddhist its my request to stop propagating such false theories.

    Dear Agniveer and other readers,

    Please look after this sayings of Buddha.

    Lord Buddha denied that the Vedas were sacred. He denied that whatever the Vedas said was final. He denied that the Vedas were infallible.
    There were many teachers who had taken the same position as he had done. However, later on they or their followers all gave in, in order to win respect and goodwill from the Brahmins for their systems of philosophy. But the Buddha never yielded on this issue.
    In the Tvijja Sutta the Buddha declared that the Vedas were a waterless desert, a pathless jungle–in fact, perdition. No man with intellectual and moral thirst can go to the Vedas and hope to satisfy his thirst.

    • dogra says

      U are entitled to your opinion, but we have right to defend our faith.
      If you feel Vedas are not for you then no problem.
      Here is essence of vedas, please feel free to disagree with the below:
      The last Sukta of Rigveda (10.191) summarizes the whole essence of what humans should do to imbibe the Vedas. The entire Vedas have to be understood in context of this Sukta which emphasizes on the most differentiating trait of human beings – unity – in purpose, method and approach. Here is a summary list of the dictates of Vedic religion in this Sukta:
      Rigveda 10.191.2
      – walk together in the path of truth without bias, injustice and intolerance
      – talk to each other to enhance knowledge, wisdom and affection without malice and hatred
      – keep working together to enhance knowledge and bliss
      – follow the path of truth and selflessness as exemplified by noble people
      Rigveda 10.191.3
      – Your analysis of right and wrong should be unbiased and not specific to particular set of people
      – You should organize together to help everyone enhance their health, knowledge and prosperity
      – Your minds should be devoid of hatred and should see progress and happiness of all as one’s own progress and happiness and you should only act for enhancement of happiness of all based on truth
      – Work together to eradicate falsehood and discover truth
      – Never ever deviate from path of truth and unity
      Rigveda 10.191.4
      – Your efforts should be full of enthusiasm and for bliss of everyone
      – Your emotions should be for one and all and love everyone the way you love yourself
      – Your desire, resolve, analysis, faith, abstinence, patience, keenness, focus, comfort etc all should be towards truth and bliss for all, and away from falsehood.
      – Keep working in synergy to increase each others’ knowledge and bliss.

      PS have no interest in swallowing another faith, this is typical baloney spouted by anti hindu muppets

  51. Ex Ritambhara prajyawaan says

    please don’t feel offended agniveer ji but Manu Smriti says that there are only three types of persons who are allowed to be praised- विद्यास्नातक , व्रत स्नातक and विद्याव्रतस्नातक . Gautam buddha was none of these. Mohammad also should not be praised. Both – gautam buddha and Mohammad were not even Brahmachari according to Rigvedaadibhashya bhumika and Satyarth Prakash. Please praise Yajyavalkya, Krishna, Bhishma, Ram , Dayanand, Patanjali, Gautam rishi etc. :)
    Thanks

  52. Mantra Drishta Rishi says

    Gautam Buddha was an illegal Sanyasi . he was shudra. Manu smriti says that those sanyasi who leave vedas are shudra. Dayanand said that those who do not study vedas are equal to goat’s breasts. See Satyarth Prakash.

    • Ankur says

      @Mantra Drishta : you proxy invokes kind of a mixed feeling.Gautam bhudda never had a chance to go to a gurukul so the fault is his parent’s not his.

    • dogra says

      ERM Manu smrtri is not holy text, so why do u quite this can you respond articles by agniveer on this website. Your knowledge on Hinduism is severly lacking

  53. Mantra drishta rishi says

    “Gautam bhudda never had a chance
    to go to a gurukul so the fault is his parent’s not
    his.”
    Gautam buddha was not eligible to enter sanyas according to Manu Smriti. First – he was not Brahman-learned of vedas. Second- he did not believed on God. third- Manu smriti clearly says that only brahmanas are allowed to enter sanyas. Manu Smriti Says that those who do not study vedas becomes shudra soon. Manu Smriti says that a Sanyasi should leave all karmas but not the study of the vedas because leaving study of vedas makes him shudra. fourth- manu smriti says that we should praise only विद्यास्नातक , व्रतस्नातक and विद्याव्रतस्नातक . he was none of these. that’s why Gautam buddha should not be praised.

    • Ankur says

      and how do you become brahman? as per you?
      its only post gurukula that one may become a brahman. Birth based cased system is puranic period invention.

    • Ankur says

      you have a very weak perceptive powers. you said
      Gautam buddha was not eligible to enter sanyas according to Manu Smriti. First – he was not Brahman-learned of vedas.
      i was responding to that,
      no one believes in birth based caste system here.
      i would suggest you get some meditation and follow Gautam in the real sense, rather than frying up your brain here. with your presumptions and ignorance.

  54. Mantra Drishta Rishi says

    Dayanand saraswati never advised reading Tripitak or other bogus texts. Gautam buddha was not mahatma. i have proof from vedas – रुचं ब्राह्मं जनयन्तो देवा अग्रे तदब्रुवन यस्त्वैवं ब्राह्मणों विद्यात तस्य देवा असन वशे। this mantra proves that gautam buddha was not having his senses under control. if he was not having his senses under control then he is fraud. you are very weak at spirituality . try following Brahmacharya. Try to realize God.

      • Mantra Drishta Rishi says

        @Ankur
        i think you have not read Rigvedadibhashya bhumika. Hindi translation is given there. Mantra does not say that someone dead does not have sense control. Mantra says the following- जो ब्रह्म का ज्ञान है वही अत्यन्त आनन्द का करने वाला और उस विद्वान् की उसमे रूचि का बढ़ाने वाला है। जिस ज्ञान को विद्वान् अन्य मनुष्यों के आगे उपदेश कर देते हैं। जो इस प्रकार से ब्रह्म को जानता है उसी की मन आदि इन्द्रिय संयम में हो जाती है अन्य की नहीं। Please go and check the meaning :)

  55. RamNarayan says

    Basant, “Vidya dadaati vinayam”. Please speak sweet. You could have used the word invite instead of challenge. You are loosing credibility though you have good knowledge of vedas/shastras. Please maintain dignity. You have a bright future. Please be a saadhak.

    May god bless you.

  56. Basant Jhariya says

    RamNarayan ji namaste,
    I think agniveer ji is not understanding the रुचं ब्राह्मं mantra . this mantra clearly proves that Gautam buddha was not having his senses under control. If Gautam buddha was not Jitendriya then all his Karmas were fruitless. Manu smriti and Satyarth Prakash call them Vipradusht विप्रदुष्ट . there is one more mantra in vedas – ऋचो अक्षरो परमो व्योमेन … this mantra reveals that those who do not know God’s qualities can never be happy. Thus gautam buddha was not even a happy person. A fraud Sanyasi had told me to emulate Gautam Buddha’s Apar and Par vairagya. I emulated. after emulation my mind went full of sorrows. and my mental functions got seriously damaged for a year. That’s why i don’t want others to suffer the same.
