Brahmanbad, intellectualism and culturalism

The creation of civilization is Brahmanbad. Brahmanbad is guided by intellectualism and culturalism. The origin of human civilization is Himabatkhand of Nepal. The Himabatkhand covers the land of Brahmaputra in east, Hindukush in west, Kailash Mansarobar in north and Ganga River in south. In past, Nepal was greater than what it is today. This region is the origin of Bedas, Upanishads, Purans and Nitishastra. As the region has been irrigated by Himalaya borne rivers, several saints of different ethnicity have enriched it through spirituality and knowledge.

Kasyap Rishi (sage) in Kailash-Mansarobar, Pulatsya Rishi, Biswamitra (Kaushik Rishi ) in shore of Koshi, Bedabyas (Chhetri) in Gorkha, Yagyabalkya in the Kingdom of philosopher king Janak, Gargi (Women), Maitreyi (Women) and Arundhati (the wife of Atri Rishi) were the creators of Bedas. Parashar Rishi and his son Parsu Ram were Chhetries. Besides fame of Balmiki Rishi in Gandak, Bashistha Rishi in Devghat, ‘Ne-muni’ named Rishi in Bagamati and Aakuni Rishi of Kirats is widespread and it is mentioned in Rigbeda. The sage Biswamitra (writer of Bed was Chhetri), The sage Vasista was Besyaputra, The sage Aakuni was Kirati. At present, the Yogi Narahinath is (Chhetri), Swami Prapannacharya is Rai. There were and are many-many Chhetri, Rai, Kirati and others were the creator of Brahmanbad.

In Bashistha Upanishad regarding the Himabatkhand Nepal, Basistha Rishi quotes ‘Bharatkhande Uttarayane Himalaya Tate Swornabhoomi Sworgabhoomi (There is golden land and heaven in northern part of India. In first verse of Kumar Sambhav, Kaidas (a Chhetri) also said that the land from east to west of Himalayan range is the land of Aryans. Not only Brahmins but other ethnics and castes created ancient Hindu literatures (Bedas, Purans, Upanishads, Shruti, Smriti etc). They all were creators of Brahmanbad. Bhrahmanbad is the source and origin of civilization. Because Nepal has been flooded with knowledge of Bedas, Shruti, Smriti and Yoga, it is considered as origin of human civilization and oldest land of world civilization. In the same land, Gautam Buddha was borne in Shakya dynasty and enlightened the world. The point is that he was not a Brahmin. Swayambhunath that is linked with the story of Manjushree, is also a property of all castes and races of Nepal. It has been said “Bodhisatya Mahasatya: Swayambhu Chaitya Namanyamha” (The message of the Buddha is as great as Swayambhu Chatya.) The Hindu Civilization has deep and arguably the longest continuous history of existence.

In Nepal, none of the cultures are limited to a caste or race. All Nepalese people decorate in TIKA on their forehead. Several seven sages like Kasyap, Bhardwaj, Biswamitra (Kauishik), Basistha, Atri, Gautam, Jamdagni were there in Himabatkhand Nepal. Further Parsu Ram, Upamanyu, Mautgalya, Shandilya, Marichi, Angira Pulah, Bhrigu, Mandav, Garki, Yagyabalkya, Maiteyi, Byas were also in existence. Nobody can challenge the fact. Lichhivis were the founder of Bikram Sambat and Senbanshi, Malla, Shah & Thakuri have been following the indigenous Bikram Sambat. They are all Chhetris but not Bahun. But some communal man and pro-foreign party leaders in Nepal are trying to spoil the reality of Brahmanbad.

So, I am expressing with a pure intention of unity amongst every caste and tribes of Nepalese nationalists that in future we have the capacity and are able to face any kinds foreign intervene. So, the time has come to fight against the destructive force of civilization. The Lord Krishna (Chhetri) had said-‘If you will not fight this righteous war, then you will fail in your duty, lose your reputation, and incur sin.’ Treating pleasure and pain, gain and loss, and victory and defeat alike, engage yourself in your duty. By doing your duty this way you will not incur sin.’ So, we should be active to save our identity. Culturalism and Intellectualism= Brahmanbad. Rama (was not Brahman) said in Ramayan- ‘The motherland is greater than heaven.’ Both are the creator of Brahmanbad.

Can anybody prove that here was no existence of above mentioned sages, Bedas and Upanishad in this region? Some frontline ethnic leaders, Christian people of different ethnic communities and aesthetics want to hurt the emotions of real Hindus. Without arguments, they are trying to suppress the values of Brahmanbad. In the evolutionary process of the world’s civilization, many sages had guided the way of life in the world by Beds, Upanishad. Actually, ‘Brahmanbad is the philosophy of civilization. Brahman is mind. Hinduism and Buddhism known as earth, water, fire, air and sky. Brahman is the Absolute self-luminous Consciousness.-(Dr.V.Malavalli.) A famous scholar Aldous Huxley has said-‘In Hinduism the first of these four doctrines is stated in the most categorical terms. The Divine Ground is Brahman, whose creative, sustaining and transforming aspects are manifested the Hindu trinity.’ Thus, consciousness is eternal for all castes and tribes. It proves that we, Bhahun, Chhettri, Magar, Rai, Limbu, Newar, Tharu, Dhimal, Madeshis are all equal in nature. So, the western philosopher Voltaire, George Bernard Shaw, German scholar Nitse, Megasthaniz and Fai-Han has written many books supporting the Hindu philosophy expressing the evolutionary process of the world’s civilization. Hindu philosophy is incomparably greater intellectual work than the Bible?

Caste, language, religion, land and mines of Nepal are considered to be highly sensitive issues. If you raise these issues without your understanding and enough homework, you will be trapped in net. Since past few years, some leaders raised these issues so lightly that their Pandora’s Box has been broken and totally exposed. In fact, there are three types residents in the country viz An-adibasi (those who are living from immortal time), Aadibasi (indigenous caste), Aaprabasi (migrants). Brahmins, Chhetri and few Newars are Anadibasi. Magar, Gurung, Tamang, Rai, Limbu, Sherpa, Rajbansi, Tharu and Dhimal etc are indigenous castes. Unlike, migrants are Muslims, Bengalis Marwadis, and Madhesis, who came to Nepal extending their business and trade. But, some culprit political leaders of Nepal are creating a dangerous condition of conflicts among these three groups of residents. Federalism and racism are neither issues nor solutions of Nepal. Who lives if the country’s identity dies and who dies if the country’s identity lives? So, our realistic issue is to assure their equal and active participation in every sector of nation building.

In these days the federalism is under question. Actually, federalism means is to establish the feudalism and the secular state means is to establish the Religious terrorism. Actually, federalism with ethnics group will be the causes of disintegration of civilization (Brahmanbad) and the religious unity. We are Nepali brothers and sisters -Bahuns, Chetri, Gurungs, Magar, Tharus, Newers, Limbus, Rai, Tamang and Madhsis where we are in Himal, Hill & Tarai etc The unified attempts and efforts of all people of Nepal, the civilization has been developed.

Indian intelligence service Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and CIA have been fomenting violent deterioration in Nepal. We know, Indian government is making difficult for Nepal to assert her sovereignty. In Nepal, Indian leaders have been playing an active role to diffuse the democratic aspirations of the Nepalese people.

The irresponsible party leaders want to make this country another Kashmir and Afghanistan. Now, the 30 years’ long LTTE’s armed ethnic struggle is over. So, we Nepalese people must learn from the lessons of Srilanka. The practical activities of the people are the only true method of testing the correctness of our opinions, theories and ideas. Therefore our own identity- Brahmanbad as the founder of world civilization should be protected and should not be the part of demolition of the civilization.
