Why India, the once world ruler, become so powerless now?

Udyogaparva of Mahabharata says that the composite army of the Kambojas, Yavanas and Sakas had participated in the Mahabharata war under the supreme command of Kamboja king Sudakshina. The kingdom Kamboja was located beyond Afghanistan like present day Tajikistan, Uzbekistan etc. Sakas means Iran and its surrounding countries. Yavanas means Greeks of Europe. They all fought on the side of Kauravas under the commandship of Kamboja king Sudakshina. Most of the Sanskrit texts name all these people with a common name MLECCHAS, meaning barbarians.


Now, do you understand the magnitude of the Mahabharata war? Before the Mahabharata war, Karna had defeated Sudakshina and forced him to be on the Kauravas’ side along with other kingdoms from the present day Iran to Greece in Europe. The lifestyle and culture of even these Mlecchas matches with Vedic lifestyle. However, they all got forcibly converted into Christianity and Islam during the later years. This is the only reason modern historians, influenced by the west, never allow us to include our original history in the academic syllabus.


Mind you, Mahabharata is not a MYTH to be labelled as mythology. When Julius Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb, was appreciated by the media for his successful explosion of the world's first nuclear explosion in New Mexico during the last days of second world war – he corrected the media by mentioning that he was not the first to do this. Oppenheimer later recalled that, while witnessing the explosion, he thought of a verse from the Bhagavad Gita (XI,12): “divi sūrya-sahasrasya…….” (If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the mighty one………). Oppenheimer strongly believed that atom bombs were used in the Mahabharata war.


While Karna was fixing the wheel of his chariot, Arjun tried to shoot the arrow at him. Then Karna warns Arjuna by saying that if Arjuna does not wait till he fixes the wheel of his chariot, he will use Brahmastra and it will not only kill Arjuna but also the animals and birds of that area. Now, guess which weapon can kill not just the target person but also all surrounding animals and birds of that area? Nuclear weapon, right?


Once the Mahabharata war was over, Lord Krishna wanted to put an end to all such weapons of mass destruction (Divyastras). At the time of Mahabharata, only 15 people on earth had knowledge of such weapons. They are: Arjuna, Abhimanyu, Bheeshma, Drona, Satyaki, Karna, Drushtadyumna, Dhrutarashtra, Barbarika, Parasurama, Ashvatthama, Babruvahana, Parikshit, Vrishaketu and Lord Krishna.


Among the above 15, the first 9 were dead already, Parasurama gets into permanent yoga nidra till his death, Ashvatthama was cursed by Krishna to forget his knowledge of weapons as Ashwatthama misused a weapon to kill Abhimanyu’s son while he was still in mother’s womb. Krishna anyway has decided to put a full stop to these divyastras. So, only 3 people, namely, Babruvahana (son of Arjuna), Parikshit (grandson of Arjuna), Vrishaketu (son of Karna) left with the knowledge of these weapons. And these 3 people are going to live in Kaliyuga also once Dwapara Yuga ends. So, Krishna takes their vow that they will never ever pass on the knowledge of these weapons to the next generation. Thus ended India’s capability of using weapons of mass destruction, which paved the way for other nations taking control of India in the Kaliyuga with the invention of guns.


It was Lord Krishna’s decision and so we obliged and accepted our karma. Now is the time to regain our lost status in the modern world. Being a researcher in Vedic Science, I feel that we should build the SPIRITUAL ARMY and take control of this world. By the phrase TAKING CONTROL OF THIS WORLD, I don’t mean to loot or occupy other nations, but to teach them the dharmic way of living without looting other nations in the guise of freedom of expression, secularism, equality, democracy etc nonsense. I wish our so called, I repeat, SO CALLED, pro-Hindu government at the center establishes the Indian Institute of Spiritual Research soon only to prove spirituality as a pure science and to materialise my dream of convincing people to get into spiritual life. I know, there are millions of people to donate for Shri Ram Temple, but none for this Indian Institute of Spiritual Research. I guess, still our bad karma is not exhausted.
