JAMBUDWIPA AND THE SANKALPA
All of us would have probably heard the words, ".....Jambudveepe Bharatha
Varshe Bharata Khande....." during the sankalpa mantram which forms an
integral part of all Vedic rituals. However, most people in foreign
countries regularly come to our page with the doubt as to how they must
modify this sankalpa mantra to suit the etymology of those countries. This
post hopes to throw some light on this aspect.
What exactly is this "Jambudwipa"?
Jambudveepa consisted of modern Asia, Europe, Africa and North America and
not merely the Indian subcontinent.
This Jambudvipa was divided into nine varshas (geographical regions) of
which one was Bharatha Varsha. The other eight varshas were:
India which was then called Bharathavarsha extended in the west including
the regions of modern Egypt, Afghanistan, Baluchistan, Iran, Sumeria upto
Caspian Sea (which was called Kashyapa Samudra in those days). Within this
Bharata Varsha was located the Bharata Khanda which was the heart of the
Vedic civilization & the place where we Indians currently reside. This is
one of the innumerous proofs that the Indo-Aryan race theory is a
conspiracy theory moulded by western countries to show us in poor light.
All of the regions so mentioned in the race theory are a part of Bharata
Varsha & there was never a so called "invasion".
What is amazing is the fact that our ancestors had an excellent overview
of the geography of the world back then.
It can be observed that in those times, most of South American continent,
southern half of African Continent and entire Australia were submerged
under water. On the other hand most of modern day Atlantic ocean and
Pacific ocean, and the entire Arctic ocean were above sea level.
This also proves the logical fallacy of the Western missionaries which
claim that the Vedic civilization is just 5000 years old, Kurukshetra war
took place just a few thousand years back,etc. The vedic civilization
existed at times when Australia was submerged below the ocean! Imagine how
long back that must have been!
What is rather disappointing is the fact that our government to this day
teaches all sorts of disproved, anti-Indian & illogical theories in our
textbooks solely for "minority appeasement" & to support the slow
conversion on Hindus to Christianity, a mission well sponsored by the
missionaries of the West.
The credits for this discovery go to the great soul Lokamanya
Balagangadhar Tilak. More info can be found in his book �The Arctic Home
in the Vedas�.
Its disgusting that our government teaches our younger generations to
think how worthless our ancestors were rather than teaching them about
these great discoveries by such patriots.
I am reminded of the time when the Congress & other pseudosecular parties
cried about "Saffronisation of India!" when LK Advani made a proposal to
introduce lessons about the great sages of our country. Its time we wake
up & understand who is ruling us & what their true agenda is. Are our
sages not Indians? Can you name one country which shows its own
personalities in poor light to appease its minorities(although minorities
are not at all benefitted by it!)?
Its not that we are siding with any political party, but we shall
certainly not accept those parties which intend to slowly destroy Sanatana
Dharma through covert means!
