So Friends Time to Know our Dharma in #KYD Know Your Dharma Series
Before IT Revolution, Most People in the West, Knew India as a Land of Snake Charmers & KamaSutra (Perceived as a Sex Manual). Because this was, what was Shown to them Mostly. The Below Thread Will Unravel Many Essentials, We All Indians Must Know and Feel Proud of. Let’s Go!
The Story Starts with Legendary Vikramaditya-ChandraGupta II . Vikramaditya Rules from 5th-6th Century AD . He had 9 Original Navratnas (2 Most Known).Kalidasa was one of the Prolific Sanskrit Writer. Varahmira Great Mathematician/Astrloger (Knew Aryabhatta). There is various confusions with the dates of Vikramditya, Kalidasa, Vatsyayana, Varahmihra. Please note that Vikramaditya is title and ChandraGupta is name, since it was second ChandraGupta, so known as Vikramaditya ChandraGupta-II . It is Clear that Vikramditya had Navratnas (9 Jewel like famous personalities adorning his court). It was 1000 years before Akbar had the concept.
Kalidasa and Varahamihira were in the same court, It is also clear the Aryabhata was born in 476 AD and Varahmihra and Aryabhata knew each other. Hence this era can easily be considered as 5th-6th century AD. Vatsyana Muni- was a Great Sage, a Logician & Prolific Writer on Topics of Logic, KamaShastra
Vatsyayana Muni of Nyay Sutra Bhashya & KamaSutra r the same. There is one and only one Vatsyayna of this who has written Nyay Sutra Bhashya & KamaSutra. Kalidasa&Varahmihra knew him. His Writings were so impactful that Kalidasa included it in his Works & So did Varahmihra in Brihat Samhita
Basics of Dharma
First before proceeding and understanding in depth, let’s try and understand the basics of Sanatan Dharma
“Ekam Sat Vipra Bahuda Vadanti”- is a Fake&Incomplete
Many use this incorrect Shloka to sound Secular and go on to say this Shloka means all religions are same/equal and lead to one God. However, let’s analyse by Logic. The correct Shloka is in Rigveda 1.164.46. In Rigvedic time, when nothing except Sanatan Dharma existed, so how can there be any name of Something like Religion which didn’t exist. Correct Quote Means, Supreme Power is One , &People call that as Various Mahabhut also.
Six Darshans: The Pillars of Sanatan Dharma
Darshans provide the most Important Sutras(Formulae) thru Ancient Rishis, & there are Commentaries (Bhashaya) of these Darshans by Competent Ones. Why We say A Person Can be a Nastik, Still be a Sanatani ? Please See the Pic in Detail- you’ll understand Why
Atheist means doesn’t believe in the existence of Supreme Power/ Supreme presence responsible for the Creation/Sustenance/destruction of the World. It is a Western concept. Please remember that NASTIK does not mean an ATHEIST. Both Astik&Nastik are Sanatanis &Agree to presence of Supreme Power, Supreme Presence.
Then what is the difference between Aastik & a Nastik
-आस्तिक: Our Identity is our Aatma which is the extension of all pervading Universal Aatma ParamAatma (our consciousness part of universal Consciousness) . This body is not our Identity. The Knowledge in Vedas is Divine.
-नास्तिक: Our Identity is Only the Atma inside and the Body&Aatma-inside (No UniversalAtma); Don’t agree to Vedas as Source of Universal Knowledge
For Aastiks, NyayaDarshan is one of the Finest Darshans as it suggests Logic&Reasoning will lead to Truth
-Bhashya (Commentary) on Sutra may be more significant than the Sutra Itself. e.g. adiShankara did Several Bhashya and was one of the most significant contributors towards bringing Hindus back to Sanatan Dharma.
Vatsyayana Bhashya on Nyaya Darshan Sutra was Most SIGNIFICANT ! Did you notice the Yellow Cell Above and understand how important the stature of Maharishi Vatsyayana was.
Nyay means- Arriving at Truth thru Logic & Reasoning.
So मुझे न्याय चाहिए doesn’t mean I want Justice. Justice in Western perspective means something that is perceived Just & Fair. But Indian concept means It means I want only the truth (even if it is against me), but you have to arrive at the truth thru Logic & Reasoning. This Great Nyay Shastra Commentary was done by Vatsyayana-Nyaya Sutra Bhashya
What Often Used Purusharth (पुरुषार्थ) Means?
It Simply Means: “To do what is in our Hands with ultimate Goal of Moksha” – Freedom from Cycles of Birth & Death. Purusharth (पुरुषार्थ) is TriVarga (त्रिवर्ग) – Dharma, Artha, Kaam. Some wrongly refer to Pursharth as ChaturVarg (चतुर्वर्ग). Moksha (मोक्ष), is an outcome of Trivarga and is not in our Hands, so it Cannot be a part Purusharth. But When do we achieve Moksha? When at the Final moment just before the jivatama leaves body, we are left with 0% Kama or Desires about this world, we achieve a condition of Moksha, so that Jivatma can merge with Paramaatma seamlessly. If any Kama is left then the cycle of Birth & Death will continue. Which is not bad, but is a choice. It is also to be noted that freedom from birth and death cycles doesn’t mean loosing one’s identity as many people think . It simply means that the aatma becomes from from Karmic Consequences. It can do choicest of things and live a free life as per Dharma.
What Actually is Kama?
Kama is not SEX, Kama is a Desire that Pushes us for Action. Sex is one of the many Kamas. So Consciousness => Kama <=> Artha. Both Kama&Artha to be done is Such that they Uphold Dharma
If you Follow the Dharmic Path & at Last Stage if Kama is fulfilled 100% , You Achieve Moksha
So Considering the Importance of Trivarga Purusharth, Lot Of literary Works have been created
1. Dharma- (duties) ManuSmriti/Grihasutra/Aapastamba/Vashsisht
2. Artha-(practices) ArthaShastra etc
3. Kama-(desires) KamaSastra etc
An Act for sex, that Creates Life, Can Never be BAD, if as per Dharma
Sex is a basic Need in गृहस्थाश्रम, & Not a GOAL Of Life, It is just like Food& Shelter. The ArtWork On Outer Walls in Ancient Temples Normalized the act of sex as a basic process thru such carvings, while Saving Higher Thoughts for inner गर्भगृह.
History of KamaSutra and it’s present Version
Vastyayana ‘s KamaSutra is Essentialty:
1. An Art of Finding a Partner
2. An Art of a Happy Married Life, so that, GrihasthAshram is enjoyable.
3 .Only One 1 of 7Chapters Dives into Explixit Sexual acts (& Remember Babies don’t Come from Thin Air)
However, the Pristine KamaSutra was rendered into a P0rn flick when passages pertaining to “Harem”, “brothels” were added British then added Explicit Drawings in the Text which were never present in the Original Palm Leaves. Many pictures are of preceding Mughal era.
KamaSutra under the name of Richard Francis Burton, a British Spy & Explorer (1883) compiled form Flawed Interpretation of The Commentary of various Authors like Jayamangla, Printed from a Fake KamaShastra Society, & Included Illustrations for Marketing Purpose pertaining to Preceding Mughal Empire
Richard Burton, Instantly 1883 edition became a rage in West & Most Pirated Books. Officialy illegal to publish in England&USA till 1962,. The Reason was Highly Orthodox Societies in West which considered expression Sexuality a Taboo & had many Acts with Strict Restrictions.
Sh Girish Karnad ji was a self confessed #UrbanNaxal . In Movie Utsav in a garb of Showing Ancient India as Liberal, he misled audience on Slavery, Casteism, Brothels.
Mṛcchakatika drama, on which Utsav is based, Vatsyana Character was Nowhere in it , It was Fakely Inserted. Literature& Movies Show Vatsyanana as a peeping Tom & a P0rn writer, than a Maharishi.
Let’s Pay Naman to Vatsyayana who not only gave us the NyaySutrya Darshan Bhashya( Logic&Reasoning) but Sutras of Art of Living Life to the Fullest, Not perversion as it was showcased.
