Artificial Divisions vs. Integral Unity: The War on Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, Buddhists and now Lingayats

A Brief History of Wars on the Geography of Bharat

The ‘Bharat-Tere-Tukde-Tukde-Ho’ (Break India) alliance is not a new development. It has existed in recorded history from Alexander’s failed attempt to invade Bharat to the Islamic conquests from Arab, Mongol, Turk, Afghan and now Pakistani sponsors which have been essentially religious wars to the British colonial rule of Bharat.

In Independent Bharat, there has been an opportunistic coalition of incompatible Abrahamic forces, Communists and soulless capitalists who wish to extinguish this last remaining continuous Civilization that has existed since antiquity. It is a sign that the Breaking India forces are not merely external but have embedded themselves in every major fragment of Bharat’s vast eco-system.

With the General Elections just a year away, the pace of fracturing Bharat into small fragments of special interest groups induced by an illusion of great gains has become desperate, provocative and destructive. In almost every instance the collaborators of Breaking India forces in the last 1200 years were killed or ousted by their foreign sponsors – for example, Ambi was deserted by Alexander; Jaichand was killed by Ghori; Mir Jafar was ousted by Robert Clive.

Today, with a young and relatively unaware population, the Breaking India forces sense a strategic opportunity to launch an all-out war to convert the mind-scape and the knowledge-spiritual base of Bharat. The Breaking India forces are driven by their own zealotry which convinces them about the validity of their efforts despite monumentally high costs. The strong zealotry and exclusive-my-belief-is-the-best-all-others-are-false is a common thread across each Breaking India force acting upon Bharat across all times and ages.

Map 1 shows the geographical objectives of these saboteur-collaborators. The Islamic agenda is to establish a Mughalistan corridor; the Chinese and the Vatican compete for share of the North-East; the Vatican advocates a Southern confederacy, with a slice being sought in Kerala and the Deccan by the Islamic forces, leaving a moth-eaten, fragmented, mostly land-locked and bereft of water-security areas of Hindu territories waiting for the next wave of decimation. See the map and it becomes obvious that target areas have been traditionally dominated by regional satraps. Each of these satraps, without exception, have been effectively commandeered by the Breaking India forces.

The Kashmiri separatists are in league with sympathetic political fronts; the Khalistani separatist movement is constantly supported; the constantly rising Muslim demographic strength in Ganga basin and the chicken-neck area to the North-East; the Maoist Red-Corridor spanning Jharkhand-Odisha-Deccan; the evangelical activities in the southern states and their front politicians with a part of Kerala to be shared by the Vatican, Communists and the Islamic fronts such as PFI and their international collaborators. Now, the regional satraps are grouping together for a major electoral alliance for the General Election of 2019.

Bharat has been losing control, influence and market-share as a knowledge system over many geographies steadily over the past 1,200 years. Map 2 shows the areas under the influence and control of Hindu Sanatana Dharma. Compare this with the Mughalistan map designs shown in Map 1 to truly understand how much the space for Hindu Dharma has shrunk. These losses are not just territorial – they represent the elimination of wealth, growing income inequality and extreme poverty, destruction of knowledge, Dharma Sciences and Arts, Languages, Music, Temples & Institutions of Learning, Freedom of Expression including Freedom of Religion, Liberty for Women and Ethnic Minorities.

Finally, the populations in these lost territories are converted and used as resources and even as cannon-fodder in their fight against Bharat. For example, Malik Kafur – a captive converted from Gujarat became a General in Khilji’s army. Kafur went on to launch a vicious campaign on Hindu bastions all the way from Delhi to the Deccan to Madurai to Karnataka. In this context and as a side note, the timing of the release of the film Padmavat by SL Bhansali, a Breaking India force, was designed to subliminally alter the average young Hindu’s viewpoint to become softer towards Khilji’s character, is worth noting.

The Monotheistic Mind

The Monotheistic Mind of successive rulers over the last 12 centuries has created a strong imprint and deeply influences the affairs of Bharat after it became Independent in 1947. The Monotheistic Mind emerges from the deep conditioning of the mind as is done in the case of Abrahamic belief systems or any other system of indoctrination, for example the Marxist schools and other such derivatives.

In this situation, the mind becomes incapable of accepting multiple viewpoints or acknowledgement of the validity of alternate truths. The scholarly studies of other faiths by Monotheistic Minds is always colored through their own Monotheistic conditioning. As a result, there are severe distortions in their analysis even though it may have major elements of being methodically, comprehensively and exhaustively conducted.

Examples of this can be seen from the deeply flawed studies of ‘eminences’ such as William Jones, Max Mueller right up to modern day ‘scholars’ such as Wendy Donniger, Sheldon Pollock, Audrey Trushcke and others. More recently, as a post-modern, post-truth development, native ‘intellectuals’ such as Devdutt Pattnaik,  Shashi Tharoor have begun crafting their own fabrications and interpretations of Dharma from deeply ingrained Monotheistic frameworks. Further examples of this include deeply flawed theories such as the Aryan Invasion/Migration Theory that were fabricated by colonial scholars and influence policy and politics in many important areas in Bharat to this day with very depressing outcomes.

The Education System developed by the British, and the traditional Madarassa School systems of Islam also have left a deeply Monotheistic Mindset among a large section of citizens of Bharat. It is truly ironic that while there has been a proliferation of international boards of education in Bharat in recent times such as the elite IB schools, ICSE boards etc., there has not yet been any government in Independent Bharat that has permitted a Dharma based Board level platform for education.

Thus, many people in Independent Bharat have missed out on the immensely liberating ability to switch, flit, link their visualization of the Infinite Divine between His various Manifestations across space and time and the multiple dimensions of the Cosmic Multiverse. Instead they are compelled to subscribe to teaching and curriculum that trains them to think more Monotheistically.

A Monotheistic Mind, once so conditioned, finds it extraordinarily difficult to accept, internalize, comprehend, grasp, intuit, contemplate upon the vastness of a multi-dimensional, immanent, omni-potent, omniscient fabric that permeates the Cosmic Multiverse play and also at the same time transcends it. Early European and British scholars, for example, were spooked when they came across descriptions of the Yuga time-cycles of billions of years in Bharat’s knowledge sources spread across the Smritis, Shrutis, Puranas and across all the major Dharma Schools of Thought.  Their reaction to this reality was to dismiss this and condense every aspect of Bharatiya history into a rigid 6,000 year timespan as dictated by a Monotheistic Mindset.

For a trained Monotheistic Mind, the inability to accommodate a seamless view of the Multiverse and beyond is greatly atrophied. Thus, the Monotheistic Mind applies its own frameworks to describe differences as they perceive it. So the early Monotheistic Minds saw Buddhists to be different from other followers of Sanatana Dharma. They decided to call them by a different religion tag. The same happened as they encountered monks and followers of Mahavira. Later, the British colonial academics applied a Monotheistic filter in their assessments of the Sikhs who were then considered to be a separate religion. Similarly for tribal sects across the country. Suddenly, a broad populace that had never consciously encountered the feeling of ‘separateness’ or an ‘otherness’ were injected with a belief system that they are separate.

Creating an Ecosystem for Developing Monotheistic Mindsets

The British became very accomplished at applying a Monotheistic Mindset in every encounter they had with the civilization of Bharat. Sikhs, who had fluid intermingling under the Hindu Sanatana Dharma from the very beginning were suddenly made conscious of their separateness. They began to stratify far more than ever before with some fringe separatists demanding Khalistan. Jains, Buddhists, Vaishanvas, Shaivites and a myriad other classifications based on Dalit Studies and Subaltern Studies that emanate from a Monotheistic mindset were now being injected into the consciousness of the common man in order to unbundle the Hindu Sanatana Dharma as never before.

The Education systems, the Census classifications too created gradually a feeling of a mono-culture amongst the people of Bharat. This was gradual as evidenced by the great amount of confusion that prevailed during the first Census of India under the British as people in Bharat had to classify themselves into categories created by Monotheistic Minds.

The difficulties of converting people who have a Multi-verse, Multi-Form, Multi-Avatar, Multi-Faceted model of Divinity Consciousness as in the Dharma faith systems into a Monotheistic Mindset is truly a very difficult process. Thus to overcome this barrier, one belief system advocated that in religious wars, all male captives above a certain level of age maturity must be eliminated as a cardinal principle of religious instruction for it permitted easier conversion into a Monotheistic mindset.

As society began to change its character from a Multiverse, Multi-Form, Multi-Avatar, Multi-Faceted Divinity consciousness to a salad-bowl mix of Monotheistic Mindsets, it created an array of distrust, confusion, non-inclusion and even a more rigid stratification amongst the people in Bharat. This went against the very grain of Hindu ethos which was essentially a boundary-less spectrum of immersion into a vast Multiverse of philosophies, sciences, thoughts, concepts and deep empiricism.

In the Hindu Sanatana Dharma tradition, no spiritual leader has ever claimed that they were starting a separate religion. Buddha never claimed that he was starting a new Religion. Mahaveer never, in his various lifetimes, claimed that he was starting a new Religion. Guru Gobind did not claim that he was starting a new Religion. None of the various Rishis, Gurus of various sects and the protagonists of the six major schools of Sanatana Dharma claimed that they were starting a new Religion. In the Puranas, Rama, Krishna, Shiva never claimed that they were starting a new Religion. Neither did Shankaracharya.

And, in the context of the new version being inflicted by Monotheistic Minds of the Congress think-tank strategists, neither did Basavanna who is revered by not just the Lingayats/Veerashaivas but broadly across the entire Hindu Sanatana Dharma spectrum. In fact the term Lingayats did not emerge as an identity for several centuries after Basavanna – it emerged only in the 18th century, as the Monotheistic lenses become more prevalent.

The Congress (and other useful characters across the political and religious spectrum) have imparted a Monotheistic framework in the socio-political framework. They are doing it not just out of political necessity. They are doing it because they are incapable of comprehending a Multiverse, Multi-Form, Multi-Avatar, Multi-Faceted framework of Divinity which is the essence of Hindu Sanatana Dharma (an integrated term that includes all Dharma faith systems).

Hinduism’s Integral Unity Transcends Multiculturalism by Orders of Magnitude

The Western experiment of Multiculturalism has essentially failed within a short span of 50 years from the time it was first introduced in the 1970s. This is essentially because Multiculturalism which is based on Monotheistic Mind frames cannot be stable as each of the individual components inside the salad-bowl mix tries to convert the other. Despite all the laudatory plaudits that the liberal establishment of scholars churn out, it is very clear that Multiculturalism is a jump from the frying pan into the fire.

It is safe to predict that Western societies will pay a very heavy cost for applying a Monotheistic framework for social integration. In a salad-bowl mix of Monotheistic components, the most aggressive, inflexible components will prevail over other components. The happenings of Bradford, Telford, Rotterdam, Sweden, Germany, France and other bastions of Multiculturalism only serve to demonstrate how deeply flawed this model is.

Unfortunately, Europe, North Americas and other areas such as the troubled Middle-East have no choice but to suffer greatly until realization dawns about the futility of Monotheistic Mindsets. This is so as their mindsets are currently incapable of absorbing a Multiverse Mindset that followers of Hindu Sanatana Dharma follow – it requires a mammoth investment into new forms of thinking and dismantling of their existing and colossal investments in cultivating Monotheistic Mindsets.

The architecture of Hindu Sanatana Dharma, described brilliantly by several Multiverse, Multi-Form, Multi-Avatar aware thinkers such as Rajiv Malhotra, creates a mindset that not only accepts diversity but also enables individuals to seamlessly contemplate, respect, imbibe, and immerse themselves into any form-factor that helps them in their spiritual, consciousness evolution.

Hindu society has evolved in the times since antiquity to arrive at a Multiverse, Multi-Form, Multi-Avatar, Multi-School construct of Divinity that has created a productive, wealthy, harmonious, progressive evolution of the Human Race as well as all aspects of the environment and ecology that supports life. However, as this fabric suffers an assault from Monotheistic forces, the costs of security escalate and the stability and progress of our society diminishes.

Thus, Jammu and Kashmir, under a Hindu dispensation was able to foster great scholarship, art forms, literature, sciences and spiritual insights. Within the course of six centuries and more so in the last seventy years, Kashmir – progressively immersed by Monotheistic Mindsets – has shown itself quite adept in throwing out Kashmiri Hindus from their ancestral homelands and now welcoming Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar! The Secular construct that allows this to go unchallenged too emerges from a Monotheistic Mindset.

Paradoxically, we see that the growing Monotheistic Mindset is creating a call of Multiculturalism as a panacea for all the ills of each individual component of Monotheism. This is an attempt to ape a model Western model which we have seen earlier has failed every Western society where it has been implemented.

Battle for Bharat in the 21st Century: Lessons from the Past

The classification of Lingayats by the Congress Government over the last few days has demonstrated an attempt to convert a vibrant, Multiverse, Multi-Faceted, Multi-Avatar, Immanent form of the Veerashaiva worship of Shiva into a strictly Monotheistic framework. Currently, most common Lingayats are not comfortable about being considered non-Hindu by an enactment of a Legal resolution in the State of Karnataka. However, the Monotheistic Mindset knows that in a few generations, like it has happened with other strands of Dharma that were made to subscribe to Monotheistic frameworks, the forces of dissent, non-integration, non-respect of the other, non-acceptance of the other shall be injected gradually and factional behavior will be encouraged.

The break up of Hindu Sanatan Dharma from being a smooth continuum of miscible fluidity into a disparate, incompatible salad-bowl architecture is being contemplated by the Idea-of-India forces. Once the Hindu mind becomes Monotheistic and more fragmented in nature, the job of aggressive Monotheistic forces becomes easier.

These developments are not isolated. It is a part of a larger plan to balkanize Bharat which was discussed at the beginning. So what should the policy makers, common followers of Dharma and the Dharma Gurus do? Here are eight key points:

  1. Promotion of the Multiverse, Multi-form, Multi-Avatar mindset amongst Hindu followers, including one’s own family members and youngsters – a practice encouraged by celebration of various festivals and understanding their true import.
  2. Greater integration play among the various strands of Dharma that have been isolated by Monotheistic forces: Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists and yes, Lingayats along with greater integration.
  3. Identification of Gurus and Spiritual Leaders in the Dharma tradition who seek to create Monolithic architectures of their teachings and engagement with them
  4. Learning Sanskrit to the best possible extent for each member of your family and promotion of Sanskrit as not only an Indian Link Language over time but an International Link Language starting with South Asia – a region where nearly 35% of the world’s population resides.
  5. Practicing Yogic methods of Meditation to explore and experience our true inner being as a matter of daily practice.
  6. Providing access to better quality education and jobs for all segments of society to end the politically divisive battle over quotas in Bharat.
  7. Creation of Hindu Sanatana Dharma Education Boards that can develop a schooling system to create more Multiverse Mindsets.
  8. Adopting Constitutional amendments that protect the Multiverse, Multi-form, Multi-Avatar mindset and offer protection to those affected by divisional, communal and detrimental Monotheistic practices such as apostasy, gender discrimination and other discriminatory practices that prevent the re-emergence of mutual respect in Bharat.
