Myth, Legend & Prophecy

Myth, Legend & ProphecyMyth, Legend & Prophecy contains old stories about supernatural beings, heroes who perhaps lived through history and a glamourized ideology. Are the stories fictitious? The author sincerely believes in their existence, as well as, nonexistence because Matter and Energy of happenings have always existed in Time and Space (MEST). The Law of Cause and Effect (Karma) is forever recorded within the fruits of the Tree of Life. They live latent in its seeds or perhaps in the Causal Golden Egg (Hiranyagarbha) as Memories of a ‘once upon a time’ a Yuga’s (epoch or era) Time and Space. Nearly all the stories in the book sketch each incident and person wearing distinctive ‘gloves and attire’ to match the needs of humanity. Master, sages and prophets always promised world wide illumination and a promise for the future with out too much destruction (pralaya). Humankind is always given opportunities to free itself from confusions born of worsening materialistic conditions of Kali yuga (Piscean Age). By becoming a people of high ideals, it is possible to make an environment altogether different from that each has lived and now lives.

    Ancient Indians contributed greatly to the knowledge of science.
    Kanada also known as Kashyapa, Uluka, Kananda and Kanabhuk was an Indian sage and philosopher who founded the Vaisheshika school of Indian philosophy. He lived sometime between 6th century to 2nd century BC. He is known for developing the foundations of an atomistic naturalism Indian philosophy in the Sanskrit text Vaisheshika Sutra.
    He attempted to explain the creation and existence of the universe by applying logic and realism. He suggested that everything can be subdivided, but this subdivision cannot go on forever, and there must be smallest entities (parmanu) that cannot be divided, that are eternal, that aggregate in different ways to yield complex substances. That is what the modern atomic theory also says.He used these ideas with the concept of Atman (soul, Self) to develop a non-theistic means to moksha.
    Varahamihira was another well known ancient philosopher-scientist of physics,mathemetician and an astronomer who lived in the Gupta period (320-550 BC). Varahamihira made contributions in the fields of hydrology, geology and ecology. He claimed the presence of termites and plants were e indicators of the presence of underground water. This was so because they go deep to the surface of water level to bring water to keep their houses wet.
    Another theory, is the Earthquake Cloud Theory given by Varahmihira in his Brhat Samhita. Abnormal behaviour of animals and certain cloud formations were be used to predict earthquakes. Astrology was given a very high place in ancient India and it has continued even today. It is the science of predicting the future.

      Unrighteousness on the Rise & Humanity is experiencing it Today:
      Bhagavad Gita Chapter 4 Verses 7-8 states about Inculcating Fear and Greed on humanity:
      “Whenever there is decay of righteousness, O Bharata,
      And there is exaltation of unrighteousness, then I Myself come forth ;
      For the protection of the good, for the destruction of evil-doers,
      For the sake of firmly establishing righteousness, I am born from age to age.”
      Swami Vivekananda’s translation of these solkas reverberate the
      same message:
      “Whenever virtue subsides and wickedness prevails, I manifest Myself. To establish virtue, to destroy evil, to save the good I come from Yuga (age) to Yuga.” en. wikisource.org

    Logic Behind Respect for the Cow;
    Respect for Cow is about ‘Motherhood!’ She offers her pious gift of a balanced nutrition for young and old. Hindus, Buddhists and Jains in India, and not surprisingly the Masai people in Kenya respect the Cow for her economic importance. http://14cowsforamerica.com/cows. The cow is almost the center of life for us, they say! “She is sacred and is more than property. You give it a name. You talk to it. You perform rituals with it. I don’t know if you have any sacred food in America, something that has a supernatural feel as you eat it. That’s the cow for us,” says Kimeli Naiyomah http://www.nytimes.com/2002/06/03/international/africa/03KENY.html
    “Cows are the cornerstone of the Masai diet. The Masai live mostly on cow’s milk and corn meal mixed with milk. Beef is eaten only on special occasions, like feasts and other celebrations. When a cow is slaughtered for its meat, the community elders prepare the animal quickly and skillfully with great respect for the animal.
    “The elders are served first with the best cuts of meat, followed by the warriors, and finally the women and children are served what is left. The Masai also drink cow’s blood, which they believe makes them stronger. Sometimes they mix the blood with milk, and sometimes they drink it straight.
    “They draw the blood carefully by inserting a sharp arrow into the jugular vein in the cow’s neck, which causes no long-term damage if done correctly. After the animal is bled, mud is pressed into the wound to seal it closed.
    “In Masai culture, wealth is measured by the number of cows a person has. The average Masai man owns at least 15 cows, which means that they are some of the wealthiest people in Kenya.
    If a Masai man wants to get married, he might have to give as many as 15 cows to his bride’s father, which is the most he’ll ever spend at once in his lifetime!
    “The Masai recognize their herd by sight and could tell at a glance if one was missing, but it is considered to be bad luck to count the cows. The Masai believe that cows were given to them by their goddess Enkai. They believe that Enkai entrusted the cows to them for safekeeping when the earth split from the sky. Because the cows were a gift from a goddess, drinking milk and eating meat symbolizes the connection between the Masai and Enkai.
    “Cows also play a major part in the Masai afterlife. When a person dies, it is believed that their guardian spirit leads them to one of two places: a desert with no cows if he has been a bad person, and pastures with many cattle if he has been good.
    “Because of the religious significance of cattle to the Masai, cows are often slaughtered in honor of milestones like weddings. The Masai find creative uses for the cows. They make clothes, shoes, and mattresses out of cowhide, and dried cow dung can be used as fuel for fires. They even use cow dung to build their houses. The dung is mixed with twigs, grass, and urine and left to bake in the sun.
    “When it is baked, it is as hard as concrete (and it doesn’t smell at all!) The Masai take very good care of their cows. The men herd and protect the cows, and the women milk the cows. They treat their cows like friends—they give them names and even sing songs to them. They also work hard to keep their herds safe.”
    For Hindus, Jains and Buddhists, protection of cow is a ‘dharma’ that can and should be performed by people of all communities in the world. Hindus, Buddhists and Jains too have been engaged in rearing and protecting the cow for thousands of years.
    All mammals, including the human female and the cow feed their milk to their young ones and protect them. That happens for only a short time because lactation in them lasts only for a short time.
    In the case of the cow, she gives her milk to anyone and everyone, all the time , till the end of her life.
    It is said in Sastras the cow should be protected, always made comfortable during her whole life.
    In return cows are said to protect the entire world with her blessings for mortal satisfaction and earthly happiness. No other animal has such ‘giving ability’ as a food source, for ploughing fields and raising crops for people’s consumption.
    Protection of cow is therefore a deserved status for this animal.
    “The gift of cows was a gift of life…many people lose their lives [through Nature’s Reactive Ways – Law of Karma], but we have animals that are living that represent the … remembrance of those people, and because the cows will keep multiplying, life continues, it doesn’t stop, … We decided that when you educate a child, it gives the child knowledge and a better life… and that life is passed on and on and on through many generations.” —Kimeli Naiyomah.
