Speed of Light and Puranic cosmology

HINDUISM AND SANATAN DHARMA

Ancient Indian wisdom is a treasure trove of science. In fact, most of the claims made by ancient India (related to astrology, yoga, ayurveda) have been validated by Modern Science today. For example, this physics journal from USA in 1998 was astonished to find that ancient India knew the speed of light, down to the last digit of accuracy!!

Non-Violence In Sanatan Dharma

HINDUISM AND SANATAN DHARMA

Non-Violence In Sanatan Dharma :

“Ahimsa Paramo Dharma” is a Sanskrit phrase that is often repeated today to demonstrate the universality of Ahimsa.

Loosely translated, Ahimsa means Non-violence, Paramo means topmost, ultimate, or supreme, and Dharma means duty. Thus, the entire phrase means that non-violence is the topmost duty to the extent that it supersedes all other duties.
.
For someone who holds this true, it means that there is no selective application of Ahimsa…it must be applied in every case and in all matters. This universal sense leads to an unconditional and unilateral abandonment of violent resistance, under any and all circumstances (as in the philosophy of Buddha and Jains).

But Sanatan Vedic Dharma does not impose total non-violence on its followers except in the case of ascetics. Ahimsa is a general Dharma that is superseded with Himsa (violence) in order to protect Dharma.
.
Ahimsa is only loosely…

Christian-Missionary Raj in India through Sonia (Maino) Gandhi. The story of Indian Crusaders.

Struggle for Hindu Existence

Are we heading towards a Christian India?

By Francois Gautier (written on Monday, September 22, 2008)

I am a westerner and a born Christian. I was mainly brought up in catholic schools, my uncle, Father Guy Gautier, a gem of a man, was the parish head of the beautiful Saint Jean de Montmartre church in Paris ; my father, Jacques Gautier, a famous artist in France, and a truly good person if there ever was one, was a fervent catholic all his life, went to church nearly every day and lived by his Christian values. There are certain concepts in Christianity I am proud of : charity for others, the equality of system in many western countries, Christ’s message of love and compassion….
Yet, I am a little uneasy when I see how much Christianity is taking over India under the reign of Sonia Gandhi (actual name : Edvige Antonia…

Ancient Hindu marvel-Ashoka Iron Piller

HINDUISM AND SANATAN DHARMA

vishnu piller

Ancient Hindu marvel! Marvelous
For the last 1600 years, the rustless wonder called the Iron Pillar of India, near the Qutub Minar at Mehrauli in Delhi, continues to stay strong!
The pillar, made up of nearly seven tonnes of 98 per cent wrought iron of pure quality, is 7.21 m (23 feet 8 inches) high, with 93 cm buried below the present floor level, and has a diameter of 41 cm (16 inches).
A team at the Archaeological Survey of India also came to the conclusion that the pillar was not cast but fabricated by forging and hammer-wielding lumps of hot pasty iron, weighing 20 to 30 kg, in a step-by-step process. The surface of the pillar retains marks of hammer blows. It is assumed that 120 laborers took a fortnight to complete this daunting task.
Experts at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, believe that the relatively pure…
