The Vedic Civilization is the eternally living enlightened civilization, called Sanatana Hindu Dharma that traces its historical continuity from 1900 million years, the time period that marks the beginning of human civilization. This civilization flourished in the sacred land of Bharatvarsha, which is planet earth itself, yet specifically the land called Bharat or Aryavrat (India) below the Himalayas, the highest mountain ranges. The perfect protection by the mighty Himalayas and the surrounding seas have always awarded Bharat with best weather conditions and geography, allowing the most safe, peaceful atmosphere and abundant natural resources. All these divinely arranged phenomena caused the inner space and outer ambience for the flowering and spreading of the greatest Enlightened Civilization of the most evolved, conscious human-beings who lived like Gods on planet earth.
On the banks of Ganges-Sarasvati Civilization, in the forests of Naimisharanya, inhabited by millions of awakened beings and those on the path of awakening, exists the all-knowing spiritual seat of infinite knowledge or Sarvajnapeetha the divine throne graced by the all-knowing, all-powerful, all-pervading Source of Consciousness embodied as the AdiGuru, the original Master. Under the canopy of the celestial wish-fulfilling banyan tree or Kalpataru, the Sarvajnapeetha vibrates the Sacred Knowledge, grasped by the divine view of the Vedic Rishis, the eternal sages.
The Vedas (sacred scriptures) such as the Rig Veda and Puranas (cosmic history), such as the Ramayana, Mahabharat and the SrimadBhagavatam, give detailed records about the congregations of sages and saints in Naimisharanya, presided over by Incarnations and Enlightened Ones such as Sri Veda Vyasa and Saunaka Rishi. Here were composed the worlds greatest scriptures and performed the grand sacrifices for world peace and conscious human evolution.
Naimisharanya, the Forest City of the Enlightened Ones
Naimisharanya is the ever-awake primordial forest city (in Uttar Pradesh), the cosmic energy-center that formed as the foremost and oldest Vedic University for humanity, where the foundations of Sanatana Hindu Dharma are rooted; untouched by the effects of any age.
Sanatana Dharma or Hinduism is the most powerful, most sophisticated, most intelligent, most cutting-edge presentation of the Truth left with the possibility to evolve more, open for the possibility of updation.
– Paramahamsa Nithyananda
Thus, the epicenter of highest learning, teaching, and transmitting the sacred sciences was the Naimisharanya, expanding into prestigious, global residential universities like Nalanda and Takshashila with extraordinary education and research. Here, knowledge transmission or deeksha (initiation) and expression of siddhis (mystical powers) happened by the Guru Parampara, the lineage of Living Enlightened Masters through continuous disciplic succession.
The ancient seers or Rishis and Enlightened Masters of the Vedic times, as a collective consciousness, instituted cosmic research and development centers, dedicating millions of years of spiritual practices for discovering, nurturing and protecting the sacred truths for humanity. Their original revelations and mystical discoveries were systematically recorded and coded as the Vedic scriptures and transmitted in its pristine purity through the oral tradition of Guru-disciple lineage. They had access to reservoirs of knowledge and powers that decoded every field science, technology, meditation, healing, yoga, medicine, education and lifestyle.
Cultural Genocide in Vedic India by foreign invaders
Over the last 500 years, much of the sacred knowledge, education system, lifestyle and the original body-language of Sanatana Hindu Dharma got diluted, lost and destroyed by the systematic attempts of the foreign invaders to rule over Vedic India. The foreign invaders destroyed the marvelous cultural architecture, temples and deities and plotted a massive cultural genocide against Vedic India accomplishing the following:
- Destroy the Indian Gurukul system of education – the backbone of Vedic India that produced the earlier enlightened civilization. There were atleast 2 lakh gurukuls which the invaders destroyed.
- Destroy the temples, plunder the wealth, mutilate the history, spirituality, sociology, sciences and faith of India by fabricating and misrepresenting the vedic history, its language and its temple-based and education-based civilization.
- Make the Hindus ashamed of their own vedic heritage and turn them into cultural orphans, solely depending on the foreign rulership and the so-called foreign superior culture.
- Seize the vast Sanskrit manuscripts, steal the scientific knowledge from it, destroy the originals and reprint wrong interpretations of the same thus belittling the authenticity and theme of the vedic texts.
The Divine knowledge of Vedic India would have continued to benefit the aspirants of truth and peacefully lead humanity into spiritual evolution. The cultural invaders damaged significant cultural heritage in three areas â the philosophy, the language, and the lifestyle. Yet, all of these demonic attempts did not destroy the spirit of the Vedic Tradition, for the Enlightened Consciousness happens again and again in the form of Enlightened Masters and Incarnations to restore and uphold the Dharma. Following is the letter written by Macaulay, a historian and politician in 1835 triggering the systematic cultural genocide of Vedic India:
