spyghana.com | Newman City | 11 April, 2014::   Newman City Council in California (USA), which celebrated 125th Anniversary in 2013, had its first historic Hindu invocation on April eight (08-04-2014, Tuesday) evening, containing verses from world’s oldest existing scripture.

Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed delivered the opening prayer from ancient Sanskrit scriptures before the City Council. After Sanskrit delivery, he then read the English translation of the prayer. Sanskrit is considered a sacred language in Hinduism and root language of Indo-European languages.

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, recited from Rig-Veda, the oldest scripture of the world still in common use, besides lines from Upanishads and Bhagavad-Gita (Song of the Lord), both ancient Hindu scriptures. He started and ended the prayer with “Om”, the mystical syllable containing the universe, which in Hinduism is used to introduce and conclude religious work.

Reciting from Brahadaranyakopanishad, Rajan Zed said, “Asato ma sad gamaya, Tamaso ma jyotir gamaya, Mrtyor mamrtam gamaya”, which he then translated as “Lead me from the unreal to the Real, Lead me from darkness to Light, and Lead me from death to Immortality.” Reciting from Bhagavad-Gita, he urged councilmembers to keep the welfare of others always in mind. Councilmembers, city employees and public were seen standing in prayer mode with their heads bowed down during this invocation.

Wearing saffron colored attire, a ruddraksh mala (rosary), and traditional sandalpaste tilak (religious mark) on the forehead, Zed sprinkled few drops of water from river Ganga of India, considered holy by Hindus, around the podium before the prayer. Zed presented a copy ofBhagavad-Gita to Mayor Ed Katen, who introduced and thanked Zed. “It is a historic moment of pride for the community when the prayers from ancient Sanskrit scriptures are being read in this great hall of democracy of this great city of Newman”, Zed stated before starting the invocation.

Rajan Zed is a global Hindu and interfaith leader, who besides taking up the cause of religion worldwide, has also raised huge voice against the apartheid faced by about 15-million Roma (Gypsies) in Europe. Bestowed with World Interfaith Leader Award; Zed is Senior Fellow and Religious Advisor to Foundation for Religious Diplomacy, Spiritual Advisor to National Association of Interchurch & Interfaith Families, etc.

Hinduism, oldest and third largest religion of the world, has about one billion adherents and moksh (liberation) is its ultimate goal. There are about three million Hindus in USA.

Newman, whose tagline is “Honoring the Past, Celebrating the Present, Building for the Future”, is known for its annual Fall Festival. Robert Martina and Michael E. Holland are Mayor Pro Tem and City Manager respectively.

Hindu Elements in Indian Constitution.

Posted by hinduexistence on January 26, 2014

  Part. 3 Part. 4

Hindu Elements in Indian Constitution. The implication of Hindu Culture and Tradition in Indian Constitution.

IC Pic 1 pg frontUpananda Brahmachari | Hindu Existence Bureau | 26 January 2014:: India i.e. Bharat is celebrating its 65th anniversary of adopting its Constitution as it was taken granted on the day of 26th January, 1950. We are very much proud for the Indian Constitution and celebrating the Republic Day, but we never look through the Hindu Elements in Indian Constitution or the implication of Hindu Culture and Tradition in it.

The partition of India in 1947, made this unique land of cultural unity divided into two pieces on the basis of two nation theory, Hindu-Muslim basis which was undesirable to the majority people.  But, the communal minority Muslims procured their holy land of Pakistan on the strength swords and the cunning politics in connivance of the British who adopted ‘divide-&-rule’ policy.

Though least blood shedder and the minimum trouble taker Muslim conspirators materialized their holy land Pakistan even trough bloody direct action against the majority Hindus, the largest contributors of freedom struggle, the Hindus did not get the a Hindu India in return.

In contrary, the band of Muslim leaguers stayed in India only to have more slice of bread from Hindu’s share.  The Muslims who did not leave this country showing their so-called secular mentality at the time of partition, were not the patriot people, one can misunderstand the reality. But, they took a risk to stay here to form another movement of partition whenever it would be possible.  Kashmir to Kerala, Hyderabad to Muzaffarbad, we have sufficient evidences to make it clear.

To strangulate the Hindu voice to raise a demand of Hindu Rashtra in India, a long series of agents were present in the Constitute Assembly and Drafting Committee for adopting a Non Hindu texture of Indian Constitution.

Part. 12The presence of hypocrite secular, Arab Culture propagator and prominent Muslim Leaguers like Liyakat Ali Khan, Firoz Khan Noon, Khaja  Nizamuddin, Shaid Swharabardy,  Jafarulla Khan, Md. Saadullah etc. in the above committees were suitably used their efforts to shield any chance to table any possibility of Hindu Nation and Hindu Constitution in India. Most of these people were the staunch supporters of Muslim League, Pakistan and were involved in Direct Actions against Hindus. We cannot ignore the most critical role as played by Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, very silently to deter any Hindu fervor of Indian Constitution. It must be noted here that the hidden relationship of Azad with the communist leader Muzaffar Ahamed was linked with the partition of India and Azad never challenged the ‘Pakistan Proposal’ of communist lobbies as drafted by Muzaffar Ahamed.  All Muslim leaders in Congress, Communist parties  and the Muslim Leaguers had their unique aspiration for Pakistan in their brain and heart, but sometime some of them dramatically persuaded otherwise.

A part of this entire Pakistan lobby stayed in India after partition and engineered their tainted hands in the drafting of Indian constitution to make it ‘anti-Hindu’.

God saved us as at least three true nationalists were present in the Constitute Assembly and Drafting Committee to adopt some deliberate actions in favour of the majority people and Hindu Nature of this ancient land.  Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel, Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar and Dr Shyama Prashad Mookerjee acted fortunately in favour of the majority sentiments in this land, where the Hindu sentiment was the most unwanted subject in Indian politics.

As Indian Constitution says the measures of ‘prohibiting the slaughter of cows’ as to protect it as a tradition of this land or otherwise adopting such provisions of ‘Rights’, ‘directive principals’ or other mechanism to rule this land, has been derived from Hindu Values and put into it as to check the further division of this land and to protect the statute and texture of the Bharatiyata of the people of this land. Obviously, the Indian Constitution was prepared, permitted and propounded on the heights of Humanitarian outlook and never on any Semitic concepts and rejected the malfunctions of Sharia  or the orthodoxy of any church in its preview.

Part. 13Afterwards, this philosophy was challenged by Mrs. Indira Gandhi (don’t forget her name as Mymuna Begum and wife of Firoze Khan), the autocrat of Indian emergency period and attacked Indian Constitution in its Preamble by infiltrating two words,  ‘Socialist’  and ‘Secular’ in the unfortunate 42 amendment in 1977.

Then Prime Minister, Indira  Gandhi tried to please her communist friends  and the international Russian lobby by inserting ‘Socialist’ and evidently tried to please the communal forces in Muslim and Christian community by inserting ‘Secular’, so that this Constitution would be a powerless fallacy for any Hindu rights or empowerment. As a result of that more and more demands of religious reservation, communal education systems, sectarian status for some states etc. are hitting  the body of democracy in India on rapid fire basis, only to  destroy it fatally.

As told by me by late Pabitra Kumar Ghosh, a venerated and veteran journalist in Bengali media that Smt. Gandhi then tried to delete the pro-Hindu pictures from the original copy of Indian Constitution as provoked by the communists and the communalists but it could be possible by relying the intelligence reports as it might be a great retaliation as an aftermath from the patriotic forces.

Most of the students and concerned readers do not know even the pictures illustrated in its original copy of the hand written Constitution of India. Such books are also not available in the market containing the pictures of Indian Constitution.  The calligraphy in the original constitution was done by Prem Behari Narain Raizda. It was illuminated by Nandalal Bose and other artists, published by Dehra Dun, and photolithographed at the Survey of India Offices.

IC Pic 2 pg 0The twenty pictures so far enshrined in the Constitution of India may be termed as the reflection of Culture and Tradition of Bharat and most evident of the context of Hindu culture of Bharat. These pictures reflect the historicity of the Lank Vijay and Sita Uddhar by Lord Ram (Victory of Lanka and rescue of Sita), Gita Upadesh by Lord Krishna (Exhorting Gita in Kurukheshtra), Vedic Life, Ganga Anayan by Bhagirata ( Bringing Ganages from heaven to the earth by Bhagirata), King Viktamaditya, Gautam Buddha, Tirthankar Mahavir, illustration of Nalanda University, Chatrapati Shivaji, Guru Govinda Singh, Rani Lakshmibai, Scene of Himalaya which are exclusively reflecting the message of rich Hindu Culture and Tradition of Bharat.

Every picture drawn in every Part of the Constitution of India has its own relevance and significance. The Part I of The Union and its Territory starts with the Seal of Mahanjadaro.  The seal emblems with the traditional Oxen worship in India. Part II, Citizenship starts with the scene reflecting the Vedic Tradition of Yajna tradition in India; Chapter III, Fundamental Rights starts with the win of Truth and faith over the evil power by depicting the picture of Lanka Vijay; Part IV, Directive Principles of State Policy reflects of the knowledge of Gita as exhorted by Lord Krishan; Part V, The Union depicts the picture of the Sangha established by Lord Buddha, Part VI, The states in Part A.. shows the picture of Tirthankar Mahavir, picture of Nataraj in Part XII and so on. One cannot deny the significance of these pictures in relation of Indian culture and heritage in the context of  the philosophy of Indian Constitution.

Only two contemporary Indian icons of freedom struggle have been included in the Constitution. They are Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (two pics, one of Dandi March and other is Noakhali Hindu Carnage visit) and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose (one pic of role of Netaji and Indian National Army in Indian Freedom Struggle). Two controversial pictures of Muslims viz. Akbar and Tipu Sultan are also included in it. Akbar’s role to capsize the warrior Rajput power and Tipu’s role for Hindu massacre are always debatable points in the Indian history.

But, in no way the Hindu significance of the Holy Indian Constitution can be denied. This generation and the next must know it with full deliberation.

Warning from Hindu Society. Change the name of ‘Ram-leela’ by Sanjay Bhansali, immediately.

Posted by hinduexistence on November 22, 2013

Allahabad High Court bans ‘Goliyon ki raasleela Ram-Leela’ film in UP. Ban after ban from Courts, Protest after protests from Hindu Society. But who will stop this derogatory ‘Ram-leela’ by Sanjay Bhansali? 

A Warning from Hindu SocietyUpananda Brahmachari | Allahabad | 22 Nov 2013:: Allahabad High Court banned ‘Goliyon ki raasleela Ram-Leela’ in UP. The Allahabad High Court on Thursday banned director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s romantic saga ” Goliyon ki raasleela Ram-Leela” in Uttar Pradesh. This ban came after it got stricture by Madhya Pradesh High Court on 14th Nov 2013 as directed striking out of word ‘Ram-Leela” from its title after a plea alleged that it use had hurt religious sentiments.

But, ignoring the Hindu Sentiment and several protests in different parts of the country, Sanjay Bhansali and company released the ‘impugned’ film on 15th Nov upon their strength of money power and exercise of their anti Hindu power lobbied in Central Film Censor Board.

Now, the Lucknow bench of the court comprising justices Devi Prasad Singh and Ashok Pal Singh passed the order to ban the film on a petition filed by Maryada Purshottam Bhagwan Ramleela Samiti, Bahraich.

The petitioner had prayed for cancellation of Censor Board certification given to the film on November 1 and sought that controversial and objectionable dialogues be removed from the film.

The petition had contended that the film was hurting religious sentiments of Hindus and its title ‘Ramleela’ was giving a wrong message to society as Lord Ram’s ‘leela’ (act) had great impact on Indian society.

Besides, Centre, state government, Central Film Certification Board, UP’s chief secretary, Eros International and Bhansali had been made a party in the petition.

In the early development, the film’s name was previously changed from ‘Ramleela’ to ‘Ram-Leela’ and it was now being called ‘Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela’ after objections were raised to its name. But, it was nothing but a hypocrisy of Sanjay Leela Bhansali to show his might in the Bollywood film industry as well to undermine the Hindu Sentiments over one billion people who know Ramleea as the cultural depiction  and performing art on the biography of Lord Rama.

However, a division bench in MP High Court comprising acting Chief Justice K K Lahoti and Justice Subhash Kakode on 14-11-2013  issued the directives to remove the word ‘Ram-Leela’ on a petition filed by lawyers Anand Chawla and Amit Kumar Sahu.

Then, the MP high court also issued notices to the CEO of Eros International, Kishore Lulla, film director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, actors Deepika Padukone and Ranvir Singh, who are playing the lead roles, and sought their replies.

The petitioners contended that use of the word ‘Ramleela’ in the film title and its posters had hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus and demanded their removal.

But, it is the time for whole of Hindu Society to take the challenge of  Sanjay Leela Bhansali to run his ‘leela’ of foul playing with the Hindu sentiments. The Hindu society peacefully demonstrated to restore their religious rights. We reached the roads to lodge Hindu protests.

DNA reported on 15th Nov as  Ram-Leela faces protest in several states. They reported the protests from Indore (Madyapradesh) , Rajkot (Gujarat), Jalandhar (Punjab) and the Capital city of Delhi. On the same day NDTV highlighted the news of disruption of screening of Ram-leela at Indore. In all these places Bajrangdal protested on roads. On 16th Nov, the Hindustan Times highlighted the news from Patiala (Punjab)  where Hindu Kranti Dal took on road to object the screening of Ram-leela. The protest got violent while the agitators attcked multiplex in Rajkot. The Rashtravadi Shiv Sena vehemently protested in Delhi to ban the name of Ram-leela which is actually tagged with the film of Sanjay Bhansali very unnecessarily. But who cares for these Hindus?

Now, the final time has come for Hindus! They have protested, went to the Hon’ble Courts but the Honour of Lord Ram could not be perceived  by some anti Hindu propagators and the puppets of “D” Company as we understand. The chapter of ‘Idam Shastram’ (the discussion and negotiation on logic) has been over. Now, Hindus have the other option ‘Idam Sastram’ (direct action against evil power).  अग्रेतु चःतुर: वेदा: पृष्टेतु सशर: धनु: | इदं शास्त्रं इदं सस्त्रम् शापादपि: रादपि:  ||

So, the ‘Sanjay-leela’ begins. Time for Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ranvir Kapoor and Deepika Padukon and others trying to defame the Hindu Dharma and hurt Hindu sentiments. stars now.

Swami Vivekananda 150th birth anniversary celebration at Chicago.

Swami Vivekananda and the making of modern India.

By Amiya Prosad Sen | Jan 12, 2013 | TOI :: In several ways, the life and work of Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902) mark the historical process of India rediscovering herself in modern times. These are also emblematic of the ways in which a tradition modernizes or creates alternative forms of modernity. Today, as the nation celebrates the 150th birth anniversary of the Swami, it is only apt that we critically reflect on his life and legacy.

Generally speaking, his contribution to India and to the larger world may be summed up in four ways. First, in modern India, it was Vivekananda who first emphasized that our everyday lives would become more meaningful only when spiritualized. It was in this spirituality that he re-discovered, as it were, India’s message to herself and to the world. For Vivekananda, this spiritual self-realization led to people more fully realizing their own potentialities. Especially in the context of a colonized society like that of 19th century India, this was tantamount to men and women locating greater self-belief in themselves.

The human soul being free, suggested Vivekananda, more than compensated for the loss of political freedom.

Second, even though the Swami rejected political praxis and West inspired social and religious reforms, his essential message was the empowerment of the people: through education, collective thought and action but above all, realizing he underlying unity of all human existence. In the Hindu tradition, ascetic detachment from the world had been criticized even before Vivekananda but it was he who first actively joined the idea of individual renunciation to committed social service. >>Read details here.

Pranam. Shiv Sena supremo Balasaheb Keshav Thackeray passes away.

Posted by hinduexistence on November 17, 2012

Hindu Legend, King of Million of Hindu Hearts,  Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray passes away.

Express news service : Mumbai, Sat Nov 17 2012 ::  Bal Thackeray (86), founder of the Shiv Sena passed away at his residence Matoshree in suburban Bandra on Saturday. After his demise, son Uddhav has been taken ill. Close family members including nephew Raj Thackeray and his wife were by his side.

“He had suffered a cardiac arrest. We could not revive him despite our best efforts. He breathed his last at around 3:30 pm,” Dr Jalil Parkar, who treated the Sena supremo, said.

Bal Thackeray had been critically ill for the last few days and the condition of the 86-year-old Sena patriarch worsened on Wednesday night when he had to be put on life support. He was taken off life support later after showing signs of improvement.

Bal Thackeray had been suffering from lung and pancreatic ailments and had been under the supervision of doctors for the past two weeks. He was admitted to hospital for a week in July following fever, stomach pain and problems.

He is survived by two sons Uddhav and Jaidev and their families. While Uddhav who now runs the Sena, lived with Bal Thackeray, Jaidev moved out several years ago and the father-son shared strained ties. Thackeray’s another son Bindumadhav died in an …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………accident 15 years ago. His family also lives in Mumbai.

A rabble rouser, who started out as a cartoonist alongside R K Laxman in the Free Press Journal in the 1950s, founded the Shiv Sena in 1966 on the plank of job security for the Marathi manoos (sons of the soil) which translated into attacks on South Indians whom he had blamed for taking away the opportunities from the locals.

Referred by many as the uncrowned King of Mumbai, Thackeray made space for himself in Maharashtra’s political arena by addressing the concerns of Maharashtrians who increasingly felt marginalized and deprived in the fast developing metropolis of Mumbai.

In the five decades of the Sena’s existence, Thackeray formed an alliance with almost all political parties including the Congress, Socialist and even the Muslim League at various points of time to further his own cause.

Thackeray, however, had an anathema of adorning any constitutional posts and was happy in governing through “remote control.” [Full Report]

Bal Thackeray cremated at Shivaji Park, Mumbai.

Mumbai bids tearful farewell to Bal Thackeray

Mumbai | 18 Nov. 2012 ::  The mortal remains of Bal Thackeray, a Hindutva mascot and flagbearer of Marathi pride, were consigned to flames as lakhs of mourners joined the Shiv Sena founder’s grieving family to bid him a tearful farewell, with the city observing a virtual shutdown.

In a spontaneous outpouring of grief, a sea of humanity, unprecedented in recent memory, descended on the streets leading from “Matoshree”, Thackeray’s Bandra home, to Shivaji Park, to catch the last glimpse of the uncrowned king of Mumbai.

As several times in life, the Thackeray phenomenon was in evidence once again in death as he brought Mumbai to a halt with all marketplace, from the swanky malls to the tiny tea stalls and ‘paan—beedi’ kiosks, closed and all roads leading to “Matoshree”, Shiv Sena Bhavan in Dadar and Shivaji Park, where his last rites were performed.

Loud roars of “Parat ya parat ya Balasaheb parat ya (Come back, come back, Balasaheb come back), Kon ala re, kon ala Shiv Senecha wagh ala (Who has come, who has come, Shiv Sena’s tiger has come)” and “Balasaheb amar rahe” (long live Balasaheb) rent the air as an emotional Uddhav, the youngest son of the departed leader and Sena’s executive president, lit the pyre.

In a reflection of the respect Thackeray commanded across the board, a galaxy of politicians, from allies to rivals, film stars to captains of industry were attendance. [Full Report].

Life after Bal Thackeray: What will happen to his legacy?

While the death of Bal Thackeray has marked the end of an era that signified fiery oratory, right-wing views, and son of the soil crusades, the question being asked now is: Who will take his legacy ahead and occupy that political space? Sayli Udas and Shailesh Gaikwad report. Thackeray’s demise sends Mumbai into a sea of gloom 

Why Maharashtra must thank Bal Thackeray

Mumbai-Pune expressway ranks first among few notable achievements that the maiden Shiv Sena-BJP govt had in its saffron kitty. Another signature performance was building 55 flyovers in the city under a watchful remote-control called Bal Thackeray. Dharmendra Jorereports. Bal Thackeray dead

Our Pranam – Bowed Salutation and Gratitude to all the Gurus in this auspicious Guru Purnima!

Posted by hinduexistence on July 3, 2012

Holy Message of H.H. Dr. Jayant Balaji Athavale, Sanatan Sanstha in the event of Sri Guru Purnima.

O Hindus ! Become the immortal flame in the historical chapter on establishment of the Hindu Rashtra and preserve the heritage of Guru-disciple tradition !

Gurupournima is the day of offering gratitude unto the Guru ! The real mission of the Guru is to guide the society (that is lost in materialism) towards Spirituality and take the true disciples towards Moksha (Final Liberation). The true disciples too follow this path and participate in the samashti (for the sake of the society) mission throughout their life. Offering the self physically, psychologically and economically to the samashti mission of the Guru is true gratitude unto the Guru ! Contribution of the Guru-disciple tradition to the samashti has been immense. This glorious tradition has emancipated the life of the Hindu society on moral, cultural and spiritual fronts.
History is testimony to the fact that whenever there has been a decline of Hindu Dharma, the Guru-disciple tradition has directly participated in the mission of reinstatement of Dharma.
Today, there is a decline of Hindu Dharma. The rise of Raja-Tama-predominant forces is causing decline in sattvikta (Sattva-predominance). Since the society is indulging in adharmik (Unrighteous) practices, the spiritual strength of the Nation is weakening. This has given rise to deceit and hypocrisy in the society. Corruption and immorality are on the ascent everywhere. There is rise in wrongdoings in the name of religion. In short, the very soul of Sanatan Dharma has disappeared, and what remains is its lifeless shell. This is the single reason why reinstating of Dharma has now become necessary. Under the prevailing circumstances, reinstatement of Dharma means establishing a Hindu Rashtra on the foundation of Dharma. This Nation will then have an ideal system of governance. This system will be the true alternative to the present day corrupt democratic system, which has caused deterioration of Bharat in every field and has led to decline of Hindu Dharma.
Brahmatej (Radiance of Brahman) and Kshatratej (Radiance of warrior) are two aspects essential for the reinstatement of the Dharma. Most Saints and spiritual organisations such as Sanatan Sanstha are striving hard for enhancing the spiritual power (nurturing Brahmatej) of the Nation on the strength of their sadhana. While many Nation and Dharma loving organisations, periodicals and intellectuals are involved in nurturing Kshatratej at the physical, psychological and intellectual levels to change the dire state of the Nation, the mission needs to progress as outlined ahead.
A. Physical : This involves physical participation for the reinstatement of Dharma. For example, preventing harm to Dharma, organising protests, retaliatory action etc. This is 10% important as per the times.
B. Psychological : Educating Hindus about the mission and motivating them towards action as per the principle, ‘There can be no action unless emotion for the Nation and Dharma is awakened’. This can be achieved through educative writings in newspapers etc., through discourses etc. This also has 10% importance as per the times.
C. Intellectual : Giving direction to the Hindu society for reinstatement of Dharma. For example, conducting a detailed analysis of calamities affecting the Hindus, providing intellectual strength to Hindu organisations etc. This too has 10% importance as per the times.
D. Spiritual : This involves spiritual practice performed for bestowing spiritual strength to the physical, psychological and intellectual activities carried out for reinstatement of Dharma. For example, chanting or performing Yadnya (Sacrificial fires) to accomplish a task. This has importance of 70% as per the times.
As per the times, with the Guru-disciple tradition and spiritual sects, every Hindu participating in the task involving Kshatratej (of the physical, psychological and intellectual level) and Brahmatej (of the spiritual level) as per the ability and sadhana, amounts to preserving the Guru-disciple tradition ! O Hindus ! Be active and contribute to the reinstatement of Dharma from this year’s Gurupournima and become the immortal flame in the historical chapter on establishment of the Hindu Rashtra !
- H. H. Dr. Jayant Balaji Athavale, Sanatan Sanstha.

150th Birth Anniversary of Swamiji. Back To Vivekananda – A Mission to Achieve.

Posted by hinduexistence on January 11, 2012

Back To Vivekananda – A Mission to Achieve. 

~ Upananda Brahmachari. 

“I shall not cease to work. I shall inspire men everywhere, until the world shall know that it is one with God” – Swami Vivekananda.

In my face book page I wanted to know that: Year long celebration (12-01-2012 ~to~ 12-01-2013) will start on tomorrow timeline for the 150th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda, the Greatest Humanist and the Hindu Monk of Modern Times. How do you think to pay homage to this Great son of Mother India?

One of my friend, Raja Nambiar from Bangalore replied without delay that: “Best wishes on Celebrations of Gurudev’s 150th Birth Anniversary ….!! OM !!”

Holding the truth that Nambiar considers Swamiji as his Gurudev and certainly will arrange candles, aroma sticks, fruits, sweets, flowers (may not Cigar and chocolate as offered in Belur Math in Swamiji’s birthday with other items) for a homely grandeur, I reacted :

‎”@ Raja Nambiar : Om ! Namastee !! You are senior than me. Your DOB is January 20, 1961. Correct. Me January 20, 1965. Your span of life is chanced to observe the 100 the anniversary (1963), 125 th anniversary (1988), 150 th anniversary (2013) and I shall observe two more : 175 th anniversary (2038) and 200 th anniversary (2063)…. What do you feel that change Swamiji hoped and sacrificed His life for our MOTHERLAND? Don’t take it otherwise for the maximum it is a item for a program, subject for a lecture or to use a good mask for hiding many things. Please raise only one slogan: BACK TO VIVEKANANDA. “

After that I seriously tried to find out the book Back to Vivekananda written by Swami Nityaswarupananda. But found nowhere.

In the web searching I got a thread in a book, Swami Vivekananda in India: A corrective biography (page-332) by  Rajagopal Chattopadhyaya. In its chapter titled as ~ Review of ‘Back to Vivekananda’

“This 114 page book was written by Swami Nityaswarupananda (N), who founded the Ramakrishna Mission Institute o Culture, Calcutta, in 1938. It was written when N was nearing his end (1991), had become disgusted with the Belur Math authorities but did not care about the consequences o writing this book. It is about the state of the Ramakrishna Math and Mission as viewed by one of its senior monks, a self-appraisal and a note of warning.

The three documents having to do with the operation of the organization are reproduced in full in the appendix (page 77-114) : 1. Rules and Regulations of the Ramakrishna Math, Belur, framed by Swamiji in 1898. 2. Debuttar Deed and Declaration of Trust, dated January 30, 1901 and 3. Rules and Regulations of the Ramakrishna Math revised in 1970. Of these first has been published in the Complete  Works. The second was meant to serve and fulfil a legal requirement, to effect the legal transfer o property by Swamiji to the Trustees of the Math. The rules and regulation of 1970 claim to Swami Vivekananda’s trust deed.

More interesting than the rules themselves are N’s comments and analyses. He shows that the quality and fraternity among the monastic members enshrined in the 1898 rules have been reduced by the 1970 rules which gave undue powers to the trustees who govern the fellow monks. N wrote that according to Swami Vivekananda, ‘Truth and Truth alone preserves an organization, and it follows that adherence to truth alone can sustain it, keep it ever living and fresh …’ (page 15). N also writes ‘The problems of vain self deception, complacent self-satisfaction, and a diminished spiritual intensity are undermining the essential function of the Organization and its capacity for spiritual leadership and teaching.’ (page 23). N writes there are innumerable instances of loss of devotion to truth and of “shopkeeping” for worldly expediency. He gives two examples, of which the first is the trust of the Yogodyan Math (page 24). ‘.. The Ramakrishna Yogodyan Math was transferred by its Trustees to the Trustees of Ramakrishna Math, Belur, and incorporated into it as its branch for its future maintenance on certain definite, specific and fully accepted conditions. The first and foremost condition was that, within the Math or anywhere within its precincts, indulging in eating fish, meat or any kind of intoxicant substance will remain strictly, religiously and absolutely prohibited… The Trustees of Ramakrishna Math proved themselves to be veritable traitors to the Yogodyan Math Trust and, ipso facto, to the Ramakrishna Math, Belur, by their most utterly senseless, unscrupulous and passionate indulgence in eating fish, egg etc., within in the Yogodyan Math and its precincts.  It must be remembered that the Yogodyan Math is the first Ramkrishna Math… ‘. The second instance has to do with the Upendranath Deb Trust property at 5, Dehi Entally Road, Calcutta. The Trust stipulated that the property will be designated as “Ramakrishna Sevashram”, whereas in violation of this condition it has been designated as “Advaita Ashram”.

N further writes that the Trustees from the coteries of persons of their choice, arrogate to themselves special arrangements for sitting together in the first row of seats in the dining hall, with special dishes to be served. N describes it as a vicious scene. He also writes that the Trustees claim a special status and declare their sole authority to conduct the organization. N is infuriated that the Trustees declare that they can “hold any member by the ear and remove him from one place to another as and when they think necessary”. ……….

Yes, all these are written in the book Swami Vivekananda in India: A corrective biography (page-332) by Rajagopal Chattopadhyaya in its chapter titled as Review of ‘Back to Vivekananda’.

As a matter of fact I searched this book again and again and found nowhere in the market and not even in any libraries. But how it is now vanished from everywhere?

As far I am reported that the Great Ramakrishna Mission operators lifted all the available copies from every corners as they had nothing to say or write for combating the force of truth in the book ‘Back to Vivekananda’ by none other than Swami Nityaswarupananda MaharajJi, the founder Secretary of the world famous Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture, Golpark, Calcutta and the champion Vedantist  of Ramkrishna order.  Actually getting no place to hide their violation, simply some saffron clad monks tactfully hided all the copies of this book ‘Back to Vivekananda’.

The motivation was very clear while Ramakrishna Mission went up to the Supreme Court of India to have its minority status negating HINDU ORDER by holding a ridiculous Ramkrisnaite sect and even a Ramakrisnalok in the heaven somewhere beside Brahmalok, Golok, Shibalok, etc. However, the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India saved the situation by giving one type stricture to the propagator of such minority status that Swami Vivekananda was the Champion of Hinduism, world famous as “The Cyclonic Hindu Monk of India” and Mother Kali, Bhagaban Ramakrishna, Vedanta everything was  included in Hinduism and the cynicism in the satiated minority sense was a very sign of weakness and contraction opposed both to Vedanta and Vivekananda by the R K Mission monks.

As a seer Swami NityaswarupanandaJi apprehended these things and tried to save the Mission in spirituality and ideals as propounded by Swami Vivekananda but the contemporary administrators in R K Math and Mission virtually thrown out the suggestion of this seer setting its ultimate goal ‘Back to Vivekananda’.

The autocrat monks in the power in R K Math and Mission rampantly censored the writing and speeches of Swami Vivekananda (just see the differences between the complete works of Swamiji time to time), secularization of sacredness of Ideals of Thakur, Maa and Swamiji, suppressing all the revolutionary spirit against vilification of Hindutva, corruption, morbidity of mass in cultural crisis and growing menace of Islam and Christianity in India. Swamiji established Ramakrishna Math and Mission to resist and rectify this entire problem before us and now that Math and Mission have rejected all these from its present agenda .

Amount of more  than 100 crores are coming to Mission to celebrate year long (12-01-2012 to 12-01-2013) 150th Birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda. It will be spent. Spent as earlier in the 100 th anniversary (1963), 125 th anniversary (1988). And will be spent in 150 th anniversary (2013), 175 th anniversary (2038) and 200 th anniversary (2063). But the situation will remain unchanged or may be worst further.  And if really want to change this situation we must ‘Back to Vivekananda’.

Holding the final faith on Swamiji we can recite and act accordingly with the hymns of Swadesh Mantra :

SWADESH MANTRA ~ Swami Vivekananda

O India ! With this mere echoing of others, with this base imitation of others, with this dependence on others, this slavish weakness, this vile detestable cruelty — wouldst thou, with these provisions only, scale the highest pinnacle of civilisation and greatness? Wouldst thou attain, by means of thy disgraceful cowardice, that freedom deserved only by the brave and the heroic?

O India ! Forget not that the ideal of thy womanhood is Sita, Savitri, Damayanti;

forget not that the God thou worshippest is the great Ascetic of ascetics, the all-renouncing Shankara, the Lord of Uma;

forget not that thy marriage, thy wealth, thy life are not for sense-pleasure, are not for thy  individual personal happiness;

forget not that thou art born as a sacrifice to the Mother’s altar;

forget not that thy social order is but the reflex of the Infinite Universal Motherhood;

forget not that the lower classes, the ignorant, the poor, the illiterate, the cobbler, the sweeper, are thy flesh and blood, thy brothers.

Thou brave one, be bold, take courage, be proud that thou art an Indian, and proudly proclaim, “I am an Indian, every Indian is my brother.” Say, “The ignorant Indian, the poor and destitute Indian, the Brahmin Indian, the Pariah Indian, is my brother.”

Thou, too, clad with but a rag round thy loins proudly proclaim at the top of thy voice: “The Indian is my brother, the Indian is my life, India ’s gods and goddesses are my God. India ’s society is the cradle of my infancy, the pleasure-garden of my youth, the sacred heaven, the Varanasi of my old age.”

Say, brother; “The soil of India is my highest heaven, the good of India is my good,” and repeat and pray day and night..  “O Thou Lord of Gauri, O Thou Mother of the Universe, vouchsafe manliness unto me! O Thou Mother of Strength, take away my weakness, take away my unmanliness, and make me a Man!”

N.B. Original Constitution (in book form) of Ramakrishna Math, Belur, written by Swami Vivekananda in 1898 is available with us. But no copy of Back To Vivekananda by Swami Nityaswarupananda is now available with us. Aspirants can contact : upananda.br@sify.com .

Observe 7th September as Vande Mataram Day.

Posted by hinduexistence on September 7, 2011

Rishi Bankim Chandra Chattopadhya created Vande Mataram on 7th Sept. 1882.

HE Media Centre : Kolkata :: Rishi Bankim Chandra Chattopadhya created Vande Mataram on 7th Sept. 1882. This was mostly influenced the Indian Freedom Struggle against British as a lightening spirit of all inspiration of Nationalism in modern India. Vande Mataram was finally set in Bankim’s most revolutionary novel Anandamath. Anandamath and Vande Mataram are considered as the seeds of Hindu Rashtravad (HINDU STATE IDEOLOGY). And as per Sri Aurobinda, Sanatan Dharma is the Nationalism in India. Dr. Hedgewad declared this Nation as an undisputed HINDU NATION.  

Though it is the mother source of all patriotism and Indian Nationalism in modern time, the hymn of Vande Mataram has been truncated by the Congress betrayers for the cause o Muslim appeasement. All the Hindus and the ardent Nationalists should sing the complete hymns of Vande Mataram with full veneration all along. But for keeping the spirit of our regards high to this ever delightful song of synthesis of Bhratiya Tradition, Culture, Heritage and Nationalism, we should sing this song fully on 7th September by observing Vande Mataram Day everywhere in this country. In such way, our future generation will come up to take an oath to preserve Vande Mataram intact from the attack of Congress and the fundamental maroons. VANDE MATARAM.

The full song of Vande Mataram is given below :

वन्दे मातरम्
सुजलां सुफलां मलयजशीतलाम्
शस्यशामलां मातरम् ।
शुभ्रज्योत्स्नापुलकितयामिनीं
फुल्लकुसुमितद्रुमदलशोभिनीं
सुहासिनीं सुमधुर भाषिणीं
सुखदां वरदां मातरम् ।। १ ।। वन्दे मातरम् ।
सप्त-कोटि-कण्ठ-कल-कल-निनाद-कराले
द्विसप्त-कोटि-भुजैर्धृत-खरकरवाले,
अबला केन मा एत बले ।
बहुबलधारिणीं नमामि तारिणीं
रिपुदलवारिणीं मातरम् ।। २ ।। वन्दे मातरम् ।
तुमि विद्या, तुमि धर्म
तुमि हृदि, तुमि मर्म
त्वं हि प्राणा: शरीरे
बाहुते तुमि मा शक्ति,
हृदये तुमि मा भक्ति,
तोमारई प्रतिमा गडि
मन्दिरे-मन्दिरे मातरम् ।। ३ ।। वन्दे मातरम् ।
त्वं हि दुर्गा दशप्रहरणधारिणी
कमला कमलदलविहारिणी
वाणी विद्यादायिनी, नमामि त्वाम्
नमामि कमलां अमलां अतुलां
सुजलां सुफलां मातरम् ।। ४ ।। वन्दे मातरम् ।
श्यामलां सरलां सुस्मितां भूषितां
धरणीं भरणीं मातरम् ।। ५ ।। वन्दे मातरम् ।।

By JAYAGANDI JAYARAJ (jaya@thestar.com.my) || Photos by P. NATHAN

Friday August 12, 2011/Late Posting on August Monday 22, 2011 by HE.

TO commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda (1863-2013), Ramakrishna Mission Malaysia observed the release of the ‘Arise, Awake!’ postal stamp on Aug 2.

The stamp takes inspiration from the holy man’s famous quote “Arise, Awake! Stop not till the goal is reached”.

Centre president Swami Supriyananda said with the release of the stamp by Pos Malaysia, the mission was gearing up to celebrate Vivekananda’s 150 years in a fit and proper manner appropriate to his universally respected stature as a world teacher, thinker, leader, prophet, pathfinder and humanity benefactor.

New series: The newly-released stamp.

In line with that, a series of Personality Development programmes for youths through Vivekananda’s life and message are being planned for two years, 2012 and 2013, all over Malaysia.

Supriyananda said the mission had lined up the set of programmes to help them with inner confidence and character.

“The half-day free programmes will be starting next month, and they will focus on physical, mental and spiritual health. We go to gyms to develop the body, and to temples to perform rituals, but a positive mentality also needs to be built. When you build character, you have everything,” he said after the event held at the mission’s centre in Petaling Jaya.

Also present at the event were Ramakrishna Mission, Belur Math, India general secretary Swami Prabhananda, and Toh Puan Uma Sambanthan.

Big slap on “Saffron Terrorism” advocacy. Renowned Christian Judge praised RSS for its sacred service to Nation without “anti-minority” prejudice.

Posted by hinduexistence on August 5, 2011

Notion of Saffron Terrorism squashed

Venerated Christian Judge sanctifies RSS, nullifies its anti-minority stigma  

RSS was never anti-minority, says Former Supreme Court judge K T Thomas

Kochi, Aug 1 (PTI) : Former Supreme Court judge K T Thomas today praised the RSS for its discipline and said the propaganda that the organisation was anti-minority was “baseless”.
……………………..
Speaking at a function here, attended by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, he also said the ”smear campaign” against RSS that it was responsible for the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi must end.
…………………………..
“There is a smear campaign that RSS was responsible for Gandhi”s assassination just because the assassin was once an RSS worker,” he said, adding that the organisation had been ”completely exonerated” by the court.
……………………….
“This smear campaign must end against RSS,” he said.
……………………………….
“I am a Christian. I was born as a Christian and practise that religion. I am a church going Christian. But I have also learnt many things about RSS,” he said.
“Can the entire Sikh community be responsible for Indira Gandhi”s assassination,” Thomas asked.
……………………………..
He said he became an admirer of the RSS in 1979 when he was posted as district judge of Kozhikode, adding simple living and high thinking was its hallmark.
During the Emergency, RSS was the only non-political organisation which fought against it. “We owe very much to RSS for sacrificing many lives for regaining our fundamental rights …”
………………………..
“The propaganda that RSS was anti minority was also baseless,” he said, adding he is a great admirer of the organisation as discipline is given importance.

Sydney Veda Pathasala is exploring Indian Culture and Heritage through Sanskrit Language.

Posted by hinduexistence on June 28, 2011

Sydney Veda Pathasala. BSK/SVP Annual Day Celebration.

VEDAS AND SANSKRIT LANGUAGE IS THRIVING IN AUSTRALIA.

BSK/SVP ANNUAL DAY – SUNDAY 19th JUNE 2011 AT ERMINGTON. 
……………………………..……………………………………….

More than 100 children and 50 adults participated in the Annual day and mesmerised the audience through Sanskrit skit, slokas and vedic chanting.

Bala Samskar Kendra (BSK) focuses on promoting Sanskrit language, leadership skills, Bharatiya culture, values and personality development in children of all ages. BSK in conjunction with Sydney Veda Patasala  (SVP) promotes Vedas and Sanskrit. Students attend classes every Sunday and learn Sanskrit which is one of the oldest languages in the world. Lessons also focus around culture, vedic science and chantings of Sanskrit hymns.

Sydney Veda Patasala is the First Veda Pathasala operating outside Bharat. The BSK and SVP Annual Day was held on the 19th of June, 2011 at Ermington Community Centre.

Smt.Bhavana Sudarshan, MC for the day, welcomed the guests. There were three BSK and SVP groups from various parts of Sydney. The program showcased the talents of children through various performances and was well attended. An apology letter from Albert Vella, President of NSW Federation of Community Language Schools, was read out signifying the importance of language in our lives. It ended with a quoting; “To speak one language is to live one life, to speak many languages is to live many lives”

The programme started with a Sanskrit poem “Mudaakarata” (written by Adi Sankaracharya) rendered by Metella Road Sanskrit school children. It was heartening for Dr Rugmini, Smt. Jayanthi and Smt.Rohini to see their teaching effort coming to fruition when their school children performed so well.

Shri Narayanan, Sanskrit teacher from Baulkham hills presented the welcome speech in Sanskrit.

Akila Ramarathinam , General Secretary, VHP Australia, presented a detailed report accompanied by a visual presentation on the activities of VHP Australia

that included  Sanskrit education, leadership camps and conferences. Swami Vigyanananda’s speech was enlightening to the audience.

DEHRADUN: Yoga guru Ramdev on Sunday broke his nine-day-old fast even as doctors said he will be discharged from hospital in two-three days though his condition is “stable”.

Spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravishankar, who met the 46-year-old yoga exponent for the third day at a Dehradun hospital, said, “Ramdev has broken his fast by taking juice. He ended the fast in the presence of various religious and spiritual leaders”.

Ramdev, who went on his hunger strike to protest against corruption and black money issues, was admitted to the Himalayan Institute of Medical Sciences here on Friday after his condition deteriorated at his Patanjali Yogapeeth ashram in Haridwar.

Vijay Dhasmana, the hospital director, said, “I am thankful to everyone who came here and helped Ramdev to break his fast. His health is not such that he can be discharged today.

“It will take two-three days for him to be out of this hospital. By evening he will be shifted to a deluxe general ward. His condition is stable and he has broken his fast,” he said.

The yoga exponent’s close associate Balakrishna, who also ended his fast at the hospital, said, “Ramdev has considered the request of hundreds of his followers and people from the saints’ fraternity”.

He said, “He (Ramdev) will take this satyagraha forward till his last breath.
