The below is a forwarded one...I found it as an interesting reading.  Hope 
you too...

Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!


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:
2.Ketumula Varsha
3.Hari Varsha
4.Ilavrita Varsha
5.Kuru Varsha
6.Hiranyaka Varsha
7.Ramyaka Varsha
8.Kimpurusha Varsha
9.Bhadrasva Varsha.

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!
