Welcome to Ancient India Website

 History may be defined as collection of evidences, research based on facts & figures and presentation of  authentic information about past events. History is a strong medium to get connected with ancient roots.   Scholars who write about history are called Historians. As we all are aware that   India witnessed several invasions. Adequate justice could not be done to honor our heros  due to lack of interest by the invaders. Small contributions in the field of  History of Ancient India by historians during Colonial rule could not do justice to earlier Proud rulers of South North & West India & their successors. Ancient Indian History, therefore  became victim of history of religions by erstwhile historians. “ Truth of those dark times was not Truth, it was just someone’s version  to please their religious & political bosses.

    Marks are left by creative minds for others to relish. These are virtually great assets left behind; no less than any monuments.

    When you look at the deeper meaning of Namaste (deeper than the normal “hello” and “goodbye”, it reminds you how nice the gesture truly is:

    In, Sanskrit “namah” means “bow, obeisance, reverential salutation, adoration” and “te” means “you”. A literal translation of namah te is thus “reverential salutation to you.” It is commonly accompanied by a slight bow made with the hands pressed together, palms touching, in front of the chest.

    In a religious context this word can be taken to mean any of these:

    The Spirit in me meets the same Spirit in you.
    I greet that place where you and I are one.
    I salute the Light of God in you.
    I bow to the divine in you.
    I recognize that within each of us is a place where Divinity dwells, and when we are in that place, we are One.
    My higher energy salutes your higher energy.

    In the end, the gesture recognizes the equality of all, and pays honor to the sacredness and interconnection of all, as well as to the source of that interconnection.

    मुक्त है गगन मेरा मुक्त है मेरी हवाएँ !
    मुक्त धरती है हमारी मुक्त है अब कल्पनाएँ
    दासता से है युगों की देश ने अब मुक्ति पाई
    अब न मेरे देश का धन भूखे किसानो से छिनेगा
    द्वेष मिट जाये यहाँ से कलेश कूट जाये यहाँ से
    सब सुख समृधि होवे सवर्ग ले आयें धरा पर ~मेहता वसिष्ठ

    मैं न हूंगा, पर रहेंगे गीत मेरे !
    एक दिन यह देह मेरी, ख़ाक का एक ढेर
    धूल ही रहे गी, या रहेंगे गीत मेरे !
    राख मेरी को हवाएँ, ले दिशाओं में उर्ढ़ेंगी
    हडिओं को नदी की धार सहसा ले बहेगी
    स्नेहिओं के हर्दयिओन में भी, याद धुंधली पड़ जायेगी ~मेहता वसिष्ठ

    Adequate evidence of the religion of the Dasyus during the long period in which they have formed an important element in the society of Ancient India is not available. The meaning of the word Dass is “A Real Man” and this has been described in the Khotanise dialect. The word “Dassa” is contained in the name of a famous Vedic kings also. Several other protagonist people in the Rig Veda also have “Dassa” in their name.Dassa also means “Heaven’s Slave” as per Rig Veda. These include Kings Sudasa and Grtsamadas. Dasyu is a term that could also be applied to Vedic kings. In the battle of the Ten Kings in the Rig Veda, the king Sudas calls his enemies “Dasyu” which included Vedic peoples like the Anus, Druhyus, Turvashas, and even Purus.
    There is also mention of Dasa Balbutha Taruksa, who was a patron of a seer and who was distinguished by his generosity. There are several hymns in the Rigveda that refer to Dasa and Aryan enemies. As per Rigvedic verses, the Aryas and the Dasas stood united against their enemies. Dasyus were tree and serpent worshippers, and their principal deity was “Earth God”, to whom they offered human sacrifices till within a very recent period. They seem too to have practised all kinds of worship, as most ancient Indians used to do, in their early state of civilisation. Presumably most of the Dasyus in India, converted to Budhism though Budha himself was an Aryan.
