Our Ancestors

Written by Alok Mohan on February 13, 2023. Posted in Uncategorized

Our ancestors were great humans. It is their noble blood, which runs in our veins. As we are aware that future is built from the glorious experiences of the past, we can make our society better, Instead of repenting on our inability to fully understand the past experiences.
According to ancient sanatna dharma literature, Varaha Kalpa, comprised six Manyaars namely Swayamukta, Svarochish, Uttam, Tamas, Raivat and Chakshush. At present, Vaiswat Manvantar has started. After this Manvantar, Savarshi Daksha, Savarni, Brahmasavarni, Dharmasavarni and Rudraasavarni shall commence.
Rishi: The word Rishi is derived from Risha metal. Risha metal is used in the sense of Gaman, Moksha, Knowledge, Shruti, Satya and Tapasya.
The one who gets merged with these meanings and is immersed in Brahm, is called a Rishi. The sage, who retires from worldly subjects and invests in that unmanifested supreme element, is called a Maharishi. Rishi means a pious soul. To become a pious soul, one has to follow those ideals, which make a human, into a deity.
It takes you from the soul to the position of the Supreme Soul.
Yasak has called that personality a Rishi , who understands & implement the Mantras, into his life first.
“Practice truth, and do not follow those religious beliefs which teach unrighteousness or untruth & motivate their followers to harm others.
Always look forward, and definitely not backward. Look at the sublime, and not at the condemnation.
One must sacrifice envy, pride, conceit, distrust, hypocrisy, self-praise, slander, greed, anger, etc.
O God ! Please guide me from untruth to truth and from darkness to light.
All processes of this universe are controlled by various laws of nature called Rit. The base of ideal human life, is the universal truth. Life should therefore be seen through the prism of Rit as well as the universal truth.
There should be simplicity and no crookedness.

The culture in which our sages took thousands of years to create. It is our ultimate duty to protect it. We got this heritage from our forefathers and we have to preserve it ,for the generations to come. Political conditions in the Vedic period: In the Vedic era, there were two special institutions to assist the king. One was named Samiti and the other was Sama. Scholars are of the opinion that the Samiti was an institution of the entire nation. In which all the people of the nation used to gather and elect the king. It was the task of the committee to deport the guilty king and re-elect him by calling back the exiled king. The presence of the king in the committee was mandatory. In the assembly , disputes were discussed freely. It was mandatory for everyone to follow the established principles. Common people used to get a place in the committee, but there was a war of words/brainstorming, in the assembly. Its function was to punish according to the criminal law.

 Qualified Scholars used to take decisions while handling  crime cases, therefore it was mandatory for a king to obey these decisions. During peace and war, this was duty of the king to protect his subject. Rajguru or a Purohit was responsible for the king’s enthronement

 because of all the yagya rituals I have performed between these two, if I ask you two Rajguru Purohit after the king’s enthronement after performing yajya rituals, by saying

“This kingdom is given to you. You will manage it, you are a strong warrior, you are the bearer, for agricultural work, for the welfare of the people, for confirmation, this kingdom is given to you.”

It is clear that the state was not for the enjoyment of the king. It was the duty of the king to protect the nation and make the state happy or bring prosperity through agriculture. As long as the king was the protector of the subjects, he remained on the throne. Otherwise he could be removed. Therefore, welfare of the nation with the help of Sabha and Samiti was the ultimate goal of the Vedic king. The goal was Rajasuya Yagya was performed to become a king and Ashwamedha Yagya was the law to become Chakravarti Samrat. According to “Shatpath Brahmin”, there was an institution called “Ratni” of eleven officers. Abhishek is the first king of this institution. Used to pass The eleven members of this institution were the army chief, priest, anointed king, Mahishi (queen), Suta, gramani or village president, Kshatri, treasurer, Bhagdriha (tax collector), Akshavap (account of money), etc. In the Puranas, Brahma is considered the creator and father of the people. He first created the Prajapatis.” The Prajapatis created the subjects. There is no reference to Chaturmukha bran in the Vedic texts. Brahma is mentioned in the Upanishads as a philosopher and teacher. There, he was not considered the creator of the universe. In the Vrihad Upanishad, Brahma was given the name of Parameshtana by a teacher.
We shall also discuss our ancestors like Brahma, Prajapati, Narad, Indra, Rishi Vasishtha, etc subsequently.
