Untold facts of Puranas and history: part 2

Please feel free to comment or correct me if am wrong.

14. Brahmin:  is not a caste, in those days who were educated and could scholar the Vedas were called Brahmins irrespective of the caste they belonged, to certify them that they were Brahmins, they were asked to wear a holy thread called Janivara, and from then on whatever caste they earlier belonged to, was not theirs anymore but were called Brahmins forever, a person was never considered Brahmin just because his parents were, this thread (Janivara)slided from their left shoulder moving across their chest and stomach and ended at the right side of their hip, this had another reason too, during their Gurukul period i.e. schoolings , a task of getting food from the nearest villages and sharing the alms was one activity they did have to accomplish everyday, they had to stay cautious of not getting mislead due to their puberty at times and stay focused to their studies. So the thread was worn by these young men so that, young girls and women who supposedly get attracted to these young boys could possibly ruin their lives, hence when a young boy head shaven with a thread across would come around begging in the village was an indication of a Brahmin boy, under schooling. When such boys are around or at the front door begging for alms women and girls will have their faces covered or head bowed or partially invisible and the boys too had to bow their heads down and not look at them, this was to avoid them fall in love, to avoid discontinuation in studies.
Thus, Brahman meant the one who possessed "Bramha Gnana"  by mastering all the four vedas, "Bramhana" was the certification of his completion, understanding and implementing the sanskaras mentioned in the vedic texts, it is hence not a caste. As one who completes his course of engineering is called an "Engineer", anatomy a "doctor", similarly the one who masters vedas was called a "Bramhan". not necessarily an Engineer's son should also be certified an Engineer or a Doctor's son a Doctor though they possess no knowledge about the same, similarly a Brahmin's son not necessarily will have to be  certified a Brahmin without the "Bramha Gnana".

15.vedas originated from the sounds of animals.

16.Pathivrathas or the women of great chastity: women of those days were very lusty they had secret affairs, divorced their husbands(divorce in ancient India was normal, thatches of 7 huts were brought, tied together as a strand and broken into 2 halves which symbolized the break-up of a couple and were free to choose another partner each), lusted many other men and hence the concept of Pathivratha came in, women who were committed, honest with their husbands and loved them truly- these were the only qualities expected (but now people have made it more complex though by mentioning  of – not stepping out of their houses, not exposing their faces to strangers etc which is not true) and one who were very loyal to their husbands were called so and were given a special importance in society to inspire other women, which is now misunderstood.

17.Dhanvanthri is an ancient  Doctor from the puranas, who is an avatar of Vishnu,
Created hybrid plants like:
 a.siriya nangai- andrographis paniculata
b.periya nangai- Polygala elongata - Narrow-Leaved Milkwort
c.yeti marathhu pattai
and many more, which acts as an antidote, for snake bites, by  just applying its extract around the area of snake bite, snakes are so allergic to these Botanics that they never slither around, 15 to 30 mts of its vicinity.

18.untill Dwapara yuga a few games were unrevealed to normal people and were constrained to gods only, such as
 Paramapadam(traditional snake and ladder) played by Vishnu and Lakshmi his mistress,
Chauper(Game of dice- very close to ludo) was played by Shiva and Parvati, there are stories that say they gambled their possession including their clothing and stood naked after loosing.
Chaduranga(chess)was being played by kings and people of higher class society.

19. If people were performing penance mainly  for:
 salvation it was Vishnu whom their prayed,
for strategies and to change their fate it was Bramha ,
if they were in need of weapons and knowledge it was Shiva.

20.Apsaras the celestial nymphs:  were called the divine veshyas, because they remained pathivrathas for those whom they were under for a specific span and followed pathivratha dharma of being loyal, loving, caring and devoted, they turned virgins when were back in heaven, though they are seen as prostitutes as they never covered their upper portion of their bodies and exposed more they had a few qualities which gave them a different stand, and that’s why they are called the divine prostitutes.

21.Kamasuthra not only teaches about sexual positions but also to breed the kind of kid you desire, yes you can design your baby, it also speaks a lot about auto mobiles, electricity, machinery, astrology and much more.

22.Lord Krishna was actually very afraid of his foes , who frequently tried to attack him and his people hence he had 10 different places named the same as dwaraka, and kept shifting with his people to confuse his foes.

23.Yudishtra from mahabharatha was a very tough kid and to keep him in the track of dharma people praised him as Dharmaraja the one who prioritizes dharma at any condition, these praises kept him on track, after his death he was taken to heaven where he placed a request of meeting  Harishchandra the one known for his truthfulness , honesty, Dharma and being pious. Yudhistra was rated equal to him. Yudhishtra was eager to see a person of his kind and who existed long back with his qualities. When this request was taken to Harishchandra he dodged with a huge “NO”
Which enraged Yudhistra, he then covered himself in a blanket and visited his quarters in heaven, surprised by an unknown visitor Harishchandra who was having his dinner came down to receive the guest who stood at the door the person was completely covered in a blanket with nothing much visible but a thumb which was burnt to ashes when it drew the glimpse of Harishchandra, he then understood it was Yudhistra who was in disguise sneaked in out of curiosity , he then explained him the reason that he was just being called Dharmaraja because he was the son of Yama dharma(the lord of death) and he(yudhishtra) would be the next yama, he in his life never followed Dharma to such an extent which could be appreciable like Harishchandra or Karna, he was just a mere king like any other and not worth his fame, Yudhishtra the Dharmavaan. After this, Krishna who was present there acknowledges Harishchandra’s  statement.

24. There is no concept of  dinner in India, but after having invaded multiple times, most of the routine based on religion and beliefs have been altered. The diet schedule earlier in India was 1. Upahara 2. Bhojana 3. Phalahara, which meant           1. Breakfast 2.lunch 3. Snacks (carbohydrates contributed by proteins )at late evening before 7pm.
There’s no concept of desert too, as the sweets are served first so that when a person is hungry the digestive enzymes and acids are highly active so sweets with high calories and carbohydrates are digested first and when the acids react quite slow and get passive the rest is being served.
 But, when its done the other way or the western way , the highly reactive acids would digest the main course faster and when its passive would digest the desert or the sweets much slower, which are very rich in calories.
This was the diet routine followed by Indians for years, which kept them fit .So I think now, you could guess why?, many do have a layer of fat collection in their belly and an add on to it, are calories which gets  them fatter everyday.

25. Puranas  speak of different ways a yuga or an era in this world could end without leaving a trace behind, this has been explained in a story of a crow called Bhooshunda that survives the end of world everytime. Yogi Bhusunda is one of the Chiranjivis amongst the Yogins (celibate sages). He was the master in the science of Pranayama(breathing techniques). It is said that a big nest, like a mountain, was built by him on the southern branch of the Kalpa Vriksha(a divine tree that grants the wish or request being placed), situated at the northern summit of the Mahameru(a mountain which has an epical landmark of being used by devas and danavas  i.e gods and demons to churn the ocean for the divine nectar ). Bhusunda lived in this nest. He was a Trikala Jnani(the one who possess knowledge of past, present and future). He could sit in Samadhi(meditation) for any length of time. He was desireless. He had obtained supreme Santi and Jnana(i.e. knowledge and peace). He was there enjoying the bliss of his own Self and he is still there being a Chiranjivi. He had the full knowledge of the five Dharanas. He had rendered himself proof against the five elements(earth, space, air, water and fire) by practising the five methods of concentration. It is said that when all the twelve Adityas(sun and other stars very close to earth) scorch the world with their burning rays, he would, through his Apas Dharana(taking the form of space or dissolving into space), reach up the Akasa(space). When fierce gales arise splintering up the rocks to pieces, he would be in the Akasa through Agni Dharana(dissolving into fire or increasing the temperature of his body to very high degree). When the world together with the Mahameru would be under water, he would float on them through Vayu (air) Dharana(make himself as light as air).

25. Consumption of meat and wine  was under practice amongst the Brahmins for a very long time, it was until when Sukracharya (the teacher or guru of the Asuras or demons)cursed himself and his community(of Brahmins), to completely avoid meat and wine in their diet. Because, it was due to consumption of wine he lost his senses and ate the meat of his own favorite disciple Kachha.
The story:   when there was a war between the gods and the demons, the demons who were dead during the war were brought back to life by their Guru Sukracharya, who used the Sanjeevani Manthra, due to this the demons turned more powerful than the gods, the gods were getting tiresome fighting and hence decided to learn the Sanjeevani mathra which only Sukra knew, to whom Shiva taught out of  special affection, but made misuse of that, the gods then decided to send Brihaspathi’s son Kachha, Brihaspathi was the guru or teacher of Devas or gods who was Sukra’s enemy and yet came forward to teach him the sanjeevani manthra using which the dead could be brought back to life, during the process of learning a few lessons which even his father Brihaspathi, the teacher of gods, was unaware of, he was sent by his father with a recommendation to Sukra. But he had him under various tests after passing which he was been accepted by him and greed to teach him the rarest of Vidyas or lessons, he was so devoted that made him Sukra’s favorite student. Learning this, that Kachha who belong to the group of gods who have planned a strategy against the demons, planned to kill him by making various pieces and fed him to the wolves, Devayani a very stubborn child of Sukracharya  who had fell in love with him was worried, as Kachha hadn’t returned home even after sunset
Forced her dad to look out for him. Having learnt that he was fed to the wild wolves, he then chanted the Sanjeevani manthra and the pieces flesh in the stomachs of the wolves came out tearing apart the wolves and came back to life. The rakshas or demons did not want to commit the same mistake again, and hence the second time when he was killed half of his body was cooked and the second half was burnt to ashes and mixed in wine. Sukracharya was invited for a supper and was served his meat and he also did drink the wine. Worried Devayani of the non-return of Kachha again forced her father to use his knowledge to use the divine sight to see where he was after having learnt that he was in his own stomach, was confused what to do.
But couldn’t ignore his daughter’s request as she was very stubborn to be convinced.
He then taught her the sanjeevani mathra, and he too chanted the same for bringing Kachha back to life, he came out ripping apart Sukra. Devayani again chanted the Manthra and brought her father back to life, as the manthra was heard by more than 6 ears, the manthra turned inactive and could not be used again( a few vedic manthras  are restricted to be heard by more than 2 ears). Repenting for his mistake Sukra cursed the entire community of his (apparently Brahmins) and the teaching faculty of Vedas in India, that consumption of meat and wine was a taboo to them all.

26. Avathars of Vishnu like Jagan mohini, Vrishabh, Vyasa, Srinivasa and many more are deleted from the list of dashavathars to slot in Budhha as one of his incarnation, which actually is not right.

27.Alexader the great was gifted many vedic texts and many hindu scholars were also traded, who then later was of a great inspiration to many scientists like Socrates, plato etc.

28. Did anyone notice this?
Most of the biblical events resemble the puranas of India.
When Krishna was born to make sure that the child was dead the king ordered to kill all the kids under 5yrs of age the same happens when Jesus was born.
When the king Kamsa was turning overwhelmingly victorious a  voice from the sky (aakashavaani)mentions his death, to occur by the hands of  an 8th born and again the jewish king faces the same scenario and much more
The child(Krishna)  is then taken to a safe place and guess what? This too is  the same scenario in case of Jesus. Though  there are many proofs, after a few researches state that Jesus converted himself to  Buddhism at his age of 33, survived crucification and escaped from there to live in India for the rest of his life and lived for 82yrs. One main proof of jesus escaping the crucification is the incident of a soldier trying to pierce a spade or a spear to see if Jesus was dead after few hours of his death during sunset, and is mentioned in all the gospels that he bleeded
The question here is how could a corpse bleed? This proves that he was still alive when many declared him dead.
As mentioned in all the gospels that the body of  Jesus vanished or disappeared and Jesus reached Heaven for good.
How can anyone enter Heaven with a worldly possession, how pious or divine, body for that matter, which was given by the god himself, is not allowed in heaven for how much ever beloved could the person be to god.
Blindly saying that he was god or a messenger of god wouldn’t give it a stand to itself as a point, when other godly men like Rama, Krishna and many others had to leave their bodies behind to reach Heaven when these the cloned forms of gods, most powerful, god themselves were no different or an exception to a few rules.

29. Applying Maskara, eye shades of different colours, eyebrow shaping, hair dressing  and styling  like  Hair curling and platting  were actually done by men in India and Egypt.
Which is now  reserved for women only.

30. Shakthi pooja is very powerful, when offered prayers to her, when in the form of yoni or vagina and the milky ocean in which Lord Vishnu has made his abode is actually the Milky way Galaxy.

31.Velankai  or Limonia Acidissima was given to lusty men who couldn’t control their sexual desires and met more women each day, velankai can bring down the levels of testosterone  levels there by reducing their libido.

32.Thiripathri or peyiveratti  is a natural paranormal detector, is used in Ayurveda for medication too, the fact which startles about this plant is, the leaves ,when fresh or dry can be used as a wick in lamps its got tendency to absorb oil in the lamp n hold in its veins and functions as a regular wick and yes these fresh green leaves are flammable too. Try to get one of these, it’s a paranormal detector used in remote villages of south-India where Tantra even now is practiced. Get a lamp fill it with oil, put one of these leaves in it just as we use a cotton wick, half immersed and half  hung out to be lit, if there are any negative forces in the place where you try to light it, it won’t catch fire, but when the same is lit in any other place like temples or houses with divine environment will surely lighten up this wick.
32.Male Snakes are gifted with 2 reproductive organs, as snakes are one of the those reptiles highly subjected to assails by other species thus nature has gifted male snakes with 2 penises. While the mating season of snakes arrive the male snakes have to prove their worth by brawling with another male snake to copulate with snake of opposite sex during this grapple there are chances of it losing a penis thus is granted with another. Because the cycle of nature depends on reproduction, so it’s a boon to the cursed clan for being attacked the most.
