hindu scripture

The Ṛgveda (ऋग्वेद)

The oldest scripture of Hinduism, the Ṛgveda is compound of the word Ṛc – a hymn of praise, and veda – knowledge.

All Hindu scripture is divided into two categories. The ‘Shrutī’ literature – that which was ‘heard’, and the ‘Smritī’ literature – that which is remembered. Roughly, these two types of literature correspond to ‘revelation’ (Shrutī) and ‘tradition’ (Smritī).

The core of the ‘Shrutī’ literature is the ‘Veda’. Usually when the word Veda is used, it refers to the entire body of Vedic literature (including the Upaniśads). However, when the name of a specific Veda is used, it generally refers to the samhitā, collection of hymns, that comprise the Veda. Thus the term Ṛgveda usually means the Ṛc Samhitā or the Ṛgveda Samhita. The term ‘four Vedas’ thus are the four samhitās namely, the Ṛc, Sāma, Yajus and the Atharva.

Some of the few existing manuscripts of the Ṛgveda, from the archives of the Bhandarkar Institute of Oriental Research, Pune, including one written on birch bark.

The Ṛgveda comprising songs and hymns praising the Vedic deities is the oldest of the samhitās. It is estimated that the Ṛgveda was composed between 1800 BCE to 1200 BCE, a date of about 1500 BCE being the current consensus.

Though writing is found in India in the form of the Brahmi script from the 3rd Century BCE, the Ṛgveda was probably not written down until the late Gupta period circa 6th Century CE.  It is remarkable that was preserved with unparalleled fidelity for more than two millennia by oral tradition alone.

The Ṛgveda has 1028 hymns (the suktas) arranged in 10 books called mandalas. Many of these books are named after the clan of Brahmins descended from the seer (Ṛśī) who ‘heard’ the hymns.

The suktas of the Ṛgveda mostly comprise praises of exploits and achievements of the Vedic deities. A large Vedic mythology can be inferred from the Ṛgveda but is not explicitly narrated. However, some suktas serve as an indication of future developments in Vedic thought along two different lines, ritualism and philosophical speculation – especially the highly popular and often quoted Nāsadiya Sukta and Hiraṇyagarbha Sukta.

That which makes the tongue speak but cannot be spoken by the tongue
That alone is God, not what people worship

That which makes the mind think but cannot be thought by the mind
That alone is God, not what people worship

That which makes the eye see but cannot be seen by the eye
That alone is God, not what people worship

If you think that you know God, you know very little
All that we can know are ideas and images of God

I do not know God nor can I say that I don’t know God
If you understand the meaning of, I neither know nor don’t know
You understand God

Those who realize that God cannot be known, truly know
Those who claim that they know, know nothing

The ignorant think that God can be grasped by the mind
The wise know it beyond knowledge

When you see that God acts through you at every moment
In every movement of mind or body you attain true freedom

When you realize the truth and cling to nothing in the world
You enter eternal life.

Important Hindu Deities

Since Hinduism is often not really talked about in terms of pantheon (”all the rage” is with Greek/Roman/Egyptian, MAYBE Norse, depending on the circle you’re talking to), I wanna take the time to discuss some important deities within the Hinduism pantheon. There are other important ‘mythical’ type figures in Hinduism, so this list does NOT include everyone.

My information for this list was taken from the amazing book The Little Book of Hindu Deities by the great author, Sanjay Patel.

  • Ganesha: Best known for ‘good luck’, Ganesh/Ganesha is often spoken to when someone is asking for good luck. He is the son of Shiva and Parvati. He loves sweets! He is the brother of Karttikeya, and is the son of Shiva and Parvati

The Hindu Trinity (trimurti)

  • Brahma: Creator of the world and all living things, he designed the goddess Sarasvati. She was very shy and when she tried to avoid his gaze, he sprouted another head (coming to four heads in total). He can commonly be seen riding a goose or swan. He is the keeper of the Holy Vedas (the story of how the world was created according to Hinduism)
  • Vishnu: He is known as the ‘invisible protector’. He preserves justice and has 10 avatars. He is very popular in Hinduism
  • Shiva: He is known as a meditator, yogi (someone who acts as an inspiration for all is the simplest way to describe this; the Bhagavad Gita, which is a famous holy piece of text in Hinduism, describes it as: fearlessness, purity of heart, strives for wisdom, studies Hindu scripture, is self disciplined, straight forward, is truthful, does not hold grudges against someone, promotes peace, shows compassion for all creatures, does not exhibit greed, is gentle and modest, is not restless, is forgiving and patient and does not hold onto hatred and is not conceited). Shiva is the god of destruction, transformation, and regeneration. Deer and snakes are often associated with him. He is the dad of Ganesha and Karttikeya and husband to Parvati. He can often be seen with a trident next to him, the trident symbolizing creation, protection, and destruction of the universe

Mahadevi (mother goddess)

  • Sarasvati: Goddess of knowledge and arts, she was the first goddess ever to be worshipped in Hinduism. She is the sister of Lakshmi and Parvati. She is a symbol of being a great thinker, a gifted creator, and an independent woman. It is believed that mortal musicians, artists, writers, and students are part of her family. Her companion is a white swan. She is also NOT interested in romance with others.
  • Durga: Shiva suggested to create a new god, and thus Durga was made. She is known to be pretty, fierce, and a great warrior. Hindus celebrate her with Durga Puja, which is a 10 day celebration. She fights suffering and injustice and brings harmony and kindness. She is known to feed animals and people and is a fearless goddess. She can commonly be found riding on lions or tigers. 
  • Lakshi: She is the goddess of wealth and happiness. The Hindu gods fell in love with her when she emerged from the ocean. Shiva claimed her as his wife, but she was only interested in Vishnu. Shiva also already had a wife, so Lakshi became his consort (life partner). She is known for good luck, but she does NOT have tolerance for those who wish to use her for money (such as luck with gambling). Lakshi is known to gift prosperity and often carries an ancient symbol of well being. 
  • Parvati: Parvati has numerous names: Uma, Guari, and Shakti. She was born into royalty. She fell in love with Shiva and visited him often, gifting him with flowers and fruit. Shiva, however, was deep into meditation and never noticed her. Parvati grew extremely frustrated and threw herself into seclusion, going into her own meditation. She wanted to create enough energy from the meditation to force Shiva to noticed her. It worked and he accepted her as his wife. Parvati is the mother of Ganesha and Karttikeya. Parvati is the goddess of fertility, love, divine strength, and devotion.
  • Sita: Sita is said to be made from the earth and be the child of an earth deity because of that. She is an avatar of the goddess Lakshmi. Sita was kidnapped from her beloved. When she was returned to her husband, Rama, people questioned her “purity”. To prove it, she walked through fire, and remarkably, she went unscathed! 
  • Kali: Known as the “black one”, Kali is known to encompass paradoxes. She is not the goddess death (this is a common misconception with her). However, she is the goddess of time, liberation, and is considered to be a loving mother goddess to her devotees. An extremely fierce fighter, Kali defeated a supposedly ”unbeatable” enemy that was causing the other Hindu gods trouble!

Animal Gods

  • Nagas: they were semi-divine beings and were commonly depicted as half-cobra and half-human (and handsome!). Nagas held a dual identity - semidivine and semidemonic. They were known to protect the Earth’s treasures. They were commonly seen as symbols of creation, life, and fertility. They were known to help the Hindu gods on different quests and sheltered Buddha from a terrible storm.
  • Garuda: Known of the kind of birds, he moved at the speed of light! Garuda was known as the messenger to rely messages between gods and humans. He is also known to have a huge appetite. So much so, that Vishnu asked him if he wanted to peck at his arm and eat his flesh. Garuda attempted to peck him, but saw that the god’s skin was impenetrable, and realized he was asked a question by a god! Since this incident, Garuda promised to serve Vishnu
  • Hanuman: He is the son of Vayu and is known as the Monkey King. He can greatly expand his size or shrink to a very small size. He is known to be strong, clever, loyal, and a very faithful friend. He was good friends with Rama (an incarnation of Vishnu). Rama had a younger brother, named Lakshmana, who was injured in battle. Hanuman went to find herbs to help him heal, but was unsure of what to grab. To rectify this situation, he brought the whole mountain of what the herbs were on! 
  • Surabi: She is the mother of all cows. She is a symbol of abundance, nonviolence, respect, prosperity, generosity, help purifies bodies, and blesses people with good health. According to Indian law (India), cows can NOT be harmed. 

I have left off the 10 avatars of Vishnu, demigods, the nine planets, and summaries of some important holy texts in Hinduism. I felt like this list served as a good general introduction to the Hinduism pantheon. This list was NOT supposed to be an ‘in depth’ review of the Hindu pantheon! Again, much thanks to The Little Book of Hindu Deities by the great author, Sanjay Patel.

anonymous asked:

have you ever wondered if all asuras are actually just from southern parts of south asia? Mahabali was Mallu and Ravana was singhalese, and the way they're depicted reminds me a lot of south indian men. I always thought it was some kind of ancient PIE racism against dravidian populations echoing into the present through my own faith. It hurts to think that maybe I'd just be a demoness in the pages of the scripture unless I was a deity to assimilate.

I’ve noticed that too !!! From what I’ve looked into, ancient southern versions of the same stories are often different. Just to give a small example, according to the 4000 Divya Prabandham, Krishna was not born in Mathuraa but was born in Madurai; similarly, the Radha-figure was replaced with a southern princess named Nappinnai. Kusha, Rama’s son, is who Tamils know as Karuppannaswamy, and Draupadi is a form of the Tamil deity Amman. Ravana is half-Brahmin (this is mentioned in certain mainstream versions of the Ramayana too) and so he is naturally inclined to be a shit, and Bali is painted as a victor in Southern versions because of his submission to God (plus he has his own holiday in Kerala), while Indra is still haughty about how he can “control” God and thus spirals into self-centeredness. 

Northern tellings of stories don’t acknowledge that Narasimha took his Avatara in Andhra, that Parashurama’s mom is Mariamman, and that the Varaha Avatara is Tamil.

There’s definitely racism playing into what we deem “official” scripture because we really don’t know what’s legit and what’s just another Brahmin-centered, Northern revision. (For example, Draupadi was married to the five Pandavas just ‘cus–there was nothing wrong with polyandry in ancient South Asia; the modern “official” version of the Mahabharatha, however, weaves a very complex scheme of how Draupadi is an “eternal virgin” and regains her “purity” after each menstrual cycle. Also…Draupadi is very, very dark-skinned, but in mainstream art she’s usually depicted as pale.) 

A lot, A LOT of modern Hindu scripture has been rewritten and retold through a northern perspective–so it’s definitely hard for southern South Asians to find representation. But looking into southern folk tales and official unaltered scriptures like the 4000 Divya Prabandham (which is a collection of 4000 poems from 12 different saints of different castes and classes) can really provide a perspective on the lost aspects of modern Hinduism.

“We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent. I remember the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says: “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.” I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.“

Spirituality – Extraterrestrials and Inter-dimensionals

[Buddhism, Hinduism, religion, Vimanas, Nazis, healing, spiritual teachers, reincarnation, chakras, Earth’s energy grid and vortices, Archons, Reptilians, mind control, DNA, chemtrails, fluoride, ET experiences, Earth = the galactic prison / slave / farm planet, Wanderers / Star-seeds]

So this is where it all gets a bit far out and freaky for some – I am going to post some information on extraterrestrials soon – the more general aspects, genetics, some metaphysics and our connections - and then eventually specifically about the Archons and the extraterrestrial interference that has been occurring here on Earth -  and that this planetary system is a slave / prison planet - a sort of galactic farm – energetic farming, feeding off human fear - amongst a few other things. Sounds like a sci fi movie? Well the ‘powers that be’ give you many clues in sci-fi and fantasy movies about what is going on -  watch them carefully – many allude to what is occurring and many blatantly tell you. Who controls Hollywood? It is the secret societies who control it and they are connected to the Archons and other interfering elements. It is part of their weird religion to tell humanity in subtle ways what is occurring.

Some of what I say may seem controversial to some, and many will not understand what I am expressing in this article, but I will post it on here anyway - so as to maybe sow some seeds and in the hope it may inspire people to question everything, as well as to question and research for yourself what I am writing about in this article.

Spiritual Teachings:

I am fully aware of humanity’s resistance to this sort of information – I was resistant to it at one time too. Two or three years ago when I was still studying Buddhism, the Bhagavad Gita and various modern day teachers and sages etc…  I have been through all the stages, I got stuck on some prison planet belief systems for a little while at various points. There are positive things about Buddhism and Hinduism but it has very much been manipulated by forces behind the scenes, in fact both were started by beings not from here –  and there has been information 'lost’, sections of scriptures purposely left out of translations, scriptures stolen and metaphysical info suppressed – and they are both still absolutely religions – yes Buddhism as well - whatever people may say - they contain a set of beliefs, there to limit and confuse you to some degree. And if you look deep enough into these religions there are ancient scriptures talking a great deal about extraterrestrials beings -  and they also discuss battles in the sky and heavens and advanced transport and advanced explosive weaponry many thousands of years ago – look at The Mahabarata, The Rig Veda and The Ramayana, to name but a few. And plans and diagrams on how to build  these extraterrestrial craft were found in both Hindu and Buddhist scriptures –  These ships were often called Vimanas (You can easily look all this up yourself) – most of these diagrams and plans found their way into the hands of the Nazis (The Nazis tracked the diagrams and scriptures down and stole them) – believe it or not. Anyway, as I was saying you can think of yourself as spiritual and have very little understanding of metaphysics, energy and how Creation and this particular free will universe actually works. If I didn’t have these extraterrestrial, interdimensional, and multidimensional experiences over the last couple of years (Which I give a brief overview of later on in this article) I would not have the same understandings and perspectives, so I am certainly not getting on my high horse here. If I hadn’t received a lots of guidance and these beings hadn’t shown themselves to me – I would not know the things I know.

Humanity is in such a lot of pain, lots of suppressed pain and emotions, hardly anyone feeling good enough, everyone desperate for validation, (see how they perpetuate this through the media – everything is either turned into a competition or a fashion show!) and there are some mainstream-book-store teachers and modern sages who can help you heal to some degree – but these teachers will not be able to explain the metaphysics behind how this planet and universe works - the vast majority don’t even know about the energy body, the chakras and the metaphysics behind healing. And none of the mainstream book store teachers or sages know how the reincarnation cycle process works on this planetary system. These teachers are limited in their understandings - you could do a certain amount of emotional healing, raise your consciousness, release a lot of suppressed/trapped energies, become more loving - then die and leave your body - get trapped by the reincarnation cycle and get tricked into false light realms - to then eventually reincarnate again on Earth – get your memory wiped again – back on to the prison planet – which has all been happening for a very long time. Can you see how important is to be become informed as well as healed and heart centred?

One question people may ask is: Surely these mainstream well known teachers and modern day sages are conscious enough to know about this other dimensional interference and how this planetary system works? Well, I have studied the vast majority of them and most of them have almost no metaphysical knowledge and do not understand multidimensionality. Can spiritual teachers be duped – manipulated into what they can and cant detect? Can they be naïve? Are the beings that have been interfering with humanity  powerful enough to deceive these teachers? Can they be to some extent mind controlled? You bet. And a lot of this is to do with DNA and the transformation and reconnecting of it.

From my own personal point of view I haven’t really got much time for spiritual teachers if they are not discussing within their teachings multidimensionality, the enslavement of humanity, the power of the collective-consciousness, humanity’s and Gaia’s transition to a different dimensional experience (third density to fourth density) and inter-dimensional and extraterrestrial interference. There are actually quite a few teachers talking about these important subjects – and they have good metaphysical knowledge – and these teachers are the ones the interfering forces and 'the powers that be’ don’t want us to engage with – so these more knowledgable and informed teachers are, of course, so much more suppressed. Much of humanity has been programmed to think the only people with beneficial spiritual knowledge are those who wear robes or sit in loose fitting clothes sitting on a stage with flowers around them – more mind programming. In fact you can get a lot of great metaphysical knowledge from the secret space programme whistle-blowers.

YouTube and the internet are your best bet for the teachers with metaphysical and esoteric knowledge that benefits humanity - the ‘powers that be’ don’t want them on the bookstore shelves. I am not saying you cant somewhat heal and gain some benefit from the widely accepted bookstore teachers, but they are limited and naive in many of their understandings. Everything is energy – are these book-store mainstream teachers teaching about the intricacies of managing energy? Nope. The controllers of this planet do their very best to keep the secrets of the universe and this planet to themselves. To be fair I used to read and quote some of these limited mainstream/popular teachers and modern day sages when I was searching and trying to work things out – but now I understand the limitations in their teachings.

I am not going to name any popular mainstream teachers that I think are very naive and limited in their understandings, but the point I am really trying to get across is to look beyond those popular teachers, those whose books you can find in the book-stores. Again, I am not saying you can’t derive some benefit from their words when you first begin searching – I did when I started out searching  –  but you certainly you wont find all your answers from them. Be aware that the infinite creation is supposed to be eternally enjoyed and explored - and that nothing is as it initially seems on this planetary system. Also be aware that it is not necessary to experience pain and fear like humanity is now – it is not necessary to grow, learn and evolve like this. And don’t get stuck on just one particular teacher / author - research and research and research - put together the jigsaw – they have manipulated it so that humans are so uneducated and so unquestioning. Become Heart-centered and informed.  There are certain programs / phrases in some spiritual teachings to get you to not do the research and work out the manipulations, such as 'its all illusion anyway’, or 'we are all one anyway’ – People throw phrases like this around as if they know what it means, when they are trying to sound clever, and are not doing humanity any favours – they are phrases which people can use to help them justify to themselves staying in a naïve bubble. I have been there myself, I went through a phase like that some years back.

Some spiritual teachers are often deceived and manipulated in unseen ways so they do not know the secrets of Earth and the Universe. Many seem to teach that there is something wrong with physicality, as though it is some kind of dirty thing that you must all try to transcend at all costs. This is more mind programming to get you to not seek the more advanced physics of Earth – such as the Earth’s energy grid – the vortices - its own chakra points etc. And also so that you don’t figure out that is is a prison planet being manipulated by other dimensional beings. The other dimensional beings and 'the powers that be’ are fully aware of these things and have lots of metaphysical knowledge they keep from the masses. They effect these energy grids and vortices on Gaia/Earth with very dark satanic rituals performed at these specific points on the grid, to negatively effect the collective consciousness of humanity and the morphogenic resonance of Gaia/Earth.

Extraterrestrials:

Do you believe there are Reptilian beings manipulating humanity? Yes I do, and its not just them, other beings too.  And they are absolutely connected to the non-physical Archons. These negative extraterrestrial beings have been working with the shadow governments, the  powerful banking families, the crime syndicates and the secret societies of Earth for a long time. The evidence, when you do the research, is massive. But also be aware that there are also very positive forces assisting humanity a great deal behind the scenes. Again, I realize it is difficult for people with all the mind programming that has occurred on this planet and the deep amnesia from the memory wipes - and also the covert way all of this operates.  I have been through the stages  - so I know what it’s like to first come across this type of information, or to just start to seriously consider it – I can totally empathise.

From my own perspective I am in a somewhat rare situation as I have had quite a few extraterrestrial and multidimensional experiences, which opened my mind significantly and led me to do the research I needed to. I have had a being with reptilian eyes appear to me twice in my minds eye/third eye – note: this wasn’t a reptile being as such, but a large headed being with vivid glistening yellow and orange reptile like eyes.  I have had two conscious visits from small beings who appeared to be benevolent and connected to me – it felt like they knew me well – and I knew them – after the brief physical experiences with them, whereby I had some physical contact with these little beings (rubbery dolphin like skin by the way) I also had brief astral experiences with them as well. (Is your programming kicking in as you read this ? Is this sounding ridiculous and unbelievable to you – recognise the programming you have – your resistance to possibilities) I have seen two craft in broad daylight in the hills near where I live - one was white and orb like – one a metallic dish like craft. I receive downloads – images within slides – when I find myself lucid in a void in the middle of the night - I don’t consciously understand what these images are but I know from my research that this is how a lot of communication is made with humans from extraterrestrials - these strange images, drawings, symbols or scenes. I have been awakening memories of past lives on other planets and also a memory of being taken off this planet on a craft. I have also twice experienced myself on craft or bases – I have woken, becoming lucid in the middle of the night, to find myself on a ship or base ( far out I know!) – seeing beings not from this planet and conversing with a very human looking being with pointed eyes and black material contraptions behind his pointed ears. And I used to wake up, become lucid in the middle of the night, and then experience myself astral travelling - I have seen some of the places I go to - Some of it is to places of learning on other dimensions – halls with other humans sometimes – it seems we are pretty busy at night time – well I am anyway. This is a very brief overview - I haven’t even discussed about how my art throughout the years has been communicating things with me and some paintings I did over ten years ago predicted my future! Anyway - so you see – I have some actual first hand experience in this area. These are seriously  paradigm shifting experiences when you have been living on a frequency controlled slave planet like we are  – little beings coming into your room - physically there – either just manifesting in your bedroom or coming through your walls somehow – freaky and mind blowing – it took a while to come to terms with this initially to be honest – but it really helps you break through some of the amnesia and programming.

I know it can be hard for the frequency and psychologically controlled masses to believe these types of things, but these experiences are very real, just as real as walking down the street to got to the local grocery store. My only purpose on this blog has been to share knowledge and info with people to benefit humanity in my own little way – and nobody ever gained in any individualised physical way from sharing their extraterrestrial experiences. It does bring some fear up in people on occasions when they hear about things like this, which can lead to them getting angry and very resistant even to the possibility of it – understandable though – deep, deep amnesia and fear programming. But in my experience most of those I have shared these experiences with have been curious and inspired to do more research more than anything – its a lot for some to take in though. I share this only in the hope it might stir something in people, to help them wake up some more – or to be of assistance to someone in some other way, perhaps if someone else has had some similar experiences they wont feel so isolated reading this.

Again, I do not blame people for their resistance to this information – people really have no idea of the level of manipulation occurring on this planet – for example: Poisons in our food – Genetically modified food to affect our DNA – Poisons and all sorts of heavy metals in our water (the fluoride is quite literally in there to dumb you down, and effect your pineal gland and health negatively) – Chemtrails = so that we breath in heavy metals and harmful chemicals to also affect our DNA and health – Harmful chemicals in our vaccinations – Exotic advanced frequency control technology – Parasitical inter-dimensional beings – Negative subliminals on television – Constant psychological manipulations through all media formats – Infiltration and manipulation of spiritual movements, teachers and communities to confuse and divert -  and of course the ancient Babylonian money-debt-slave financial system this planet is still using, etc etc etc… I could go on and on  – all affecting our consciousness, energy and health negatively.

Why you? Why did these experiences happen to you? Probably because I am not from here, the best way to describe it is not being a human soul. Wanderers / Starseeds are real things – souls who have come from other planetary and other dimensional experiences to be of assistance in the transformation of the planet - of Gaia and Humanity. Wanderers have much stronger connections to beings from other dimensions and planets. And there are many millions here at this time. You certainly don’t have to have had experiences like I have had to be a Wanderer. The fact you are following this blog suggests you may well be. Every being/soul has to have their memory wiped when they come to this planetary body – The Archons make sure that happens.  It is harder to wipe and suppress the Wanderers memories – they know something is very wrong here on this planet, they can feel it. It is usually the Wanderers who are really waking up to the manipulation and control occurring on this planetary system - which is ultimately coming from beings from other dimensions – who are working with secret institutions, banking families and shadow governments.

Can infinite souls / beings be duped and manipulated to reincarnate on the same planetary body over and over again –  it appears that they can. If you wipe the memory of  a soul and make it so their physical life is short (human lives are very short compared to other beings in the universe) it doesn’t appear to be that difficult. This is a very important point to contemplate and grasp – the souls/beings on this planet have their memories wiped before each incarnation – can you see or feel how shocking this is? Some in the spiritual communities have been brain washed or duped into believing this is a good or necessary thing – this is nonsense. Why on Earth would you need your memory wiped? – It does not help your evolution. Soul memories can’t be permanently wiped though - you will get the memories of your other incarnations back at some point in your evolution.

So to reiterate - quotes on extraterrestrials and the Archons and the prison slave planet Earth are coming up on this blog again. I am going to do a week or so of the Archons again at some point – and then I will get back to more general spiritual and metaphysical quotes - and  also quotes about the more easily seen manipulations and deceptions occurring on Earth.  Once you truly understand that this is a prison /slave planet – that humans are being farmed for energy - this place will make sense – you will look around and see how it is all set up by other dimensional beings for this purpose. Humanity has been cut off from the rest of the universe which is teeming with life. But don’t fear – the walls are very much cracking, the other dimensional control is loosening and eventually humanity will reconnect with the benevolent and loving extraterrestrial civilizations out there.

Far out stuff – isn’t it? :-) But in truth it only seems far out because of the fact that humanity has been totally cut off from the rest of the universe for a long time - The deep amnesia.

What humanity will come to understand eventually is that everything in this planetary system has been effected by extraterrestrials and inter-dimensionals – all throughout history – everything. It’s amazing – a rare situation in the universe to some degree: souls/beings enslaved without even knowing that they are. This information is positive too, in a way – this experience you are having now on this planet is about as limited and confusing as it can get in this universe – things are only going to get better, and they will. When I look around this planet I see the intricacies of the highly manipulative slave system implemented everywhere, absolutely everywhere - but I also see the amazing courage, resilience, humour and love within humanity.

Peace and Love.

DEAR CULTURAL APPROPRIATION BRIGADE

So it has been decided that locks cannot be worn by Asian men so reggae lover HaHa be warned. We know this because in Jackson Wangs Pepsi ad he’s seen with locks & poc k-pop fans were in attack mode on IG quickly typing that familiar excuse when ‘that’s cultural appropriation’ & if in my country I get dirty looks for wearing my natural hair than you sure as hell can’t show your love for it. Yes, it’s another nontroversy, but perhaps it’s time to stop this before it mutates into something more dangerous. So let’s get really pedantic: what ownership do African Americans actually have on locks? Answer is none, besides making it trendy for hippies, crusties & tramps locs have been around even before the pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. The first literary mention is said to be in the Hindu Vedic scriptures dating from around 1700BC. The God Shiva wore ‘matted’ dreadlocks. So it is perhaps the Asians who have the dubious honour of ‘inventing’ locks, and we could reasonably conclude that the Ancient Egyptians culturally appropriated locks from them. The ancient Greeks. In the Archaic period of 800-480BC, sculptures show men wearing dreads like the Spartan Hoplites & Ephors the Pre Columbian Aztec priests & Native Americans in also had them. In the Bible, James the Just 1st Bishop of Jerusalem was said to have his to his ankles I’m sure if he had IG back then we’d know for sure & Samson, perhaps the most famous of them all, had ‘seven locks’. Next came the Vikings, proving dreads weren’t always about peace and love, man. And Rastafarianism wasn’t even created until the 1930s in Ethiopia & they got their inspiration from The Nazarites of the bible. Locks have been worn for various reasons in each culture whether it be religious & spiritual or ethnic pride then for political reasons by the Rastafarians & Americans in the 70’s to modern times as a representation of a person’s free, alternative or natural spirit & don’t come with that mess that other cultures were invalid because they were dirty or didn’t have brushes, the comb has been around for about 5,000 years.

We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.’ I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.

The dancing Shiva is known as Nataraj.

The term ‘Nataraj’ means ‘King of Dancers’. This cosmic dance of Shiva is called Anandatandava, meaning the Dance of Bliss, and symbolizes the cosmic cycles of creation and destruction, as well as the daily rhythm of birth and death. The dance is a pictorial allegory of the five principle manifestations of eternal energy:
•Shrishti - Creation.
•Sthiti - State, or preservation.
•Samhara - Destruction.
•Tirobhava - Illusion.
•Anugraha - Release, Emancipation.

In the form of Nataraja, Shiva depicts all of these elements.

Shiva has four arms:
•He holds a Damaru or a drum in his upper right hand. It symbolizes sound originating creation or the beat of the drum is the passage of time.
•He holds fire in his upper left hand, which characterizes destruction. Mostly accepted as destruction of all that is bad. Both these hands are on the same level or, on the same line. This shows that creation and destruction are both equal.
•The lower right hand shows Shiva’s protection from both evil and ignorance to those who follow the righteousness of dharma. This gesture is known as the Abhaya Mudra.
•The lower left hand is pointing towards His feet. It signifies upliftment and liberation. It also points to the left foot with the sign of the elephant which leads the way through the jungle of ignorance. Here, the attention is drawn towards the fact that life is graceful.

His right foot is pressed downward, expressing Tirobhava, or illusions in life; whereas, the left foot is drawn upwards, depicting Anugraha, or release from the illusions of the world towards enlightenment. The right leg is at the middle of the figure, which shows the preservation of a state, or Sthiti. It also holds down a demon, which can be perceived as the demon in all of us that shall be suppressed.

As in Hindu scriptures, “It is a continual dance of creation and destruction involving the whole cosmos; the basis of all existence and of all natural phenomena.”

The Dalit-Bahujan Guide to Understanding Caste in Hindu Scripture

by  Valliammal Karunakaran

“Because it is crucial that we refrain from using the oppressor’s language to articulate the social structures that violate our communities, I first identify two terms that may still be be new to a western or diasporic audience. For example, I believe the term Bahujan, simply meaning “the majority of the people”, brings to attention to the reality that caste is not a “Dalit problem”. 

While Dalit and Adivasis are some of the most vulnerable communities in a caste society, the majority of the people of the subcontinent are caste-bound and ruled by “upper”-caste minorities. The term Bahujan refers to present day Scheduled Castes (Dalits), Scheduled Tribes (Adivasis/indigenous) and Shudra (peasant) castes — cutting across religion, ethnicities and geographies. 

In addition, the use of words Brahminism/Brahminical in the place of “Hinduism/Hindu” is also intentional. These are the appropriate term for the religion of ancient (and modern) India — at the core of which is the morality of a Brahmin-conceived institution, the Varnashrama Dharma ( the system of 4 varnas and laws and practices related to it ). The term “Hinduism” is actually a contemporary political term constructed through the mass appropriation and erasure of several distinct indigenous tribes, outcastes, religions and microcultures throughout the subcontinent for the sake of usurpation of post British-colonial land and electoral power.

The Strip was positively packed with cars, so even though it was a few blocks too early General MacManus tapped his driver on the shoulder and hardly waited for the jeep to slow down before jumping out and hoofing it towards the Lucky 38. His dogrobber followed suit in a clumsier fashion, lugging a bag and briefcase.

MacManus was big and broad, and had never given a shit about people he didn’t know, if it came down to it, so despite the crowd he was inside the casino within moments, snapping his aviators off and thrusting them backwards for Corporal Smythe to grab. When his glasses disappeared MacManus waved a paw of a hand at the liveried elevator boy, who dropped into a crisp bow and held the elevator door.

MacManus was on a mission, an important one. Of the two major projects he was working on, the first had ended early and the second was starting late. With that in play, he had managed- at great expense of money and mental effort- to carve out a teeny tiny fraction of vacation time for himself, and he was not going to hesitate at achieving it.

During the brief ride up he studiously avoided the elevator boy’s attempts at pleasant conversation, dwelling instead for a moment on the difficulty at hand. The last project he’d have to put his stamp on was ludicrous- a monkey’s job. A few of the eggheads kept wanting to tinker with the M42, adding blast shields and ammo variants. Which meant that he personally had ended up in the godforsaken desert south of Las Vegas at a makeshift observation deck, listening to the junior officers ooh and ah and quote Hindu scripture like it was the second coming of goddamned Trinity. He really pitied the poor grunt down there in the valley who had to nuke some cardboard targets from a grenade’s throw away.

It was a waste of money, and he’d said so, but he put his stamp on it anyway to get the eggheads to shut up, but he’d taken his aide Colonel Tidewater aside to let him know that the budget for the project could be safely decimated. Literally.Tidewater was out doing the legwork on the next project- some relatively practical idea about setting up newly built prisons, hospitals and such so that they could be quickly converted into useful military sites in the event regular bases were targets. Otherwise, he’d be here and there would be someone interesting to talk to.

MacManus felt the elevator slow as they neared the Presidential Suites, but he lashed out with a craggy finger in the elevator boy’s face and waggled it very deliberately. The unfortunate lad blanched but made the right choice, ignoring whatver VIPs had called the elevator.

Here they were at one of the most important targets in MacManus’ sight right now- the Lucky 38 Cocktail Lounge. He pushed out of the elevator before the door was barely opened, leaving his perpetually embarrassed dogrobber to tip and console the elevator boy.

This was it. The Holy Grail. Shangri-la. There were better bars in Vegas, of course, and Robert House’s taste in decorating would never match the Ultra Luxe, for example, but… MacManus peered through rills of cigarette smoke backlit by the sun through the tower’s windows. The view. The thrice-damned view.

He made a quick circuit, taking it in. He didn’t get to come in here often enough. The genius of this view, was that unless you got right up close and peered down, you couldn’t see the filthy city of Las Vegas at all. Seated on his usual chair- which he regretfully bypassed for the moment- he looked out at the mountains, at the thin clouds as they were driven across the sunny sky. Soon enough. Unfortunately, business never ceased.

MacManus made a departure from his routine and sat down at the bar. He reached inside his jacket and removed his pipe- a scuffed, stubby Irish bulldog- and his tobacco, which he had made by Kramer’s whenever he was in LA. It was a dark English blend, and he was sure that the smell of it straight from the pouch would keep anyone from sitting next to him. Once lit, though, it would be a smoke to rival any cathedral’s incense.

The bartender limped over and discreetly handed him a shotglass full of matches. MacManus took them and began to pack and light his pipe without acknowledging the man. Once he was steadily puffing, he looked over and gave the bartender a smile.

“Thank you, Chet.”

“My pleasure, General.” He blinked a bit more than was necessary. The power of latakia. “What will it be this morning, sir?”

MacManus looked past him, behind the bar, and chuckled. The beer taps on display were a joke, the rube’s idea of good beer and whiskey. Horowitz? Dirty Fenster? Jesus wept. House made a mint by catering to the poor schmucks who didn’t know any better. But when dealing with an arrogant sonofabitch like House, of course it was a trap.

The only thing Robert House hated more than a rube was a poser. If you asked for some top shelf booze that wasn’t shown, you’d be served it and made to feel like a king. But then the quality of service would plummet and your luck at the casino would disappear. Your punishment for putting on airs.

General Roderick MacManus was an arrogant sonofabitch as well, and ten years ago he’d made a sort of friendship with Robert House by escaping the trap the only possible way. He had cheated.

“The Satrap 1851, of course, Chet.” It was his family’s whisky, brewed for a short time and raved about by serious imbibers for some time, but discontinued before the Great War and never seen outside of Scotland. His first time at the Lucky 38 he’d asked for it, knowing they wouldn’t have it. He’d endured the embarassment and apologies with a wry smile, but on his next visit there’d been a bottle of it waiting, as well as a discreet invitation up to the penthouse, to talk business.

Chet nodded and went to fetch the drink. MacManus tucked his tobacco pouch back into his jacket and almost relaxed.

His friendship with House had turned into quite the mutual arrangement, and he’d spent many a pleasant afternoon with the man, solving… well, some of the world’s problems. At least until a couple years ago. House had always been eccentric, but at some point at least one of his gears had slipped, and he’d become a recluse. He didn’t leave the penthouse and nobody was permitted in. They’d kept in touch over the defense network (a RobCo product, of course), but electronic letters were a pale substitute for the company of your peers.

“Your Satrap, sir.” Chet brought the glass over to him like it was full of plutonium. Probably as expensive.

MacManus took a contemplative puff, before grabbing his pipe and using it to point vaguely… up. “Is… he taking visitors yet?”

“He is not, sir.” It was quite a poker face. Chet’s talents were wasted in this part of the Lucky 38. MacManus nodded with what he hoped was a reasonable expression, and without looking signaled for his dogrobber. The Corporal responded by swiftly slapping the briefcase on the bar and then stepping back into helpful distance.

MacManus snapped the catches open and reached inside for the souvenir snowglobe he’d had made for his friend. A little joke between the two of them. He set it down on the bar in front of Chet.

“Give this to Robert, with my regards, Chet.”

“I will do, sir.”

“Give Corporal Smythe a drink, please, Chet. Not the good stuff.”

“Indeed, sir.” MacManus grinned and crammed his pipe back in his mouth. He picked up his glass of whisky and stood up from the bar.

“I’ll be in my chair. Enjoying the view.”
