​Magnum Opus: A History of History Itself

The more you become aware of the admirably succinct pursuits of the Higher life, the more you get in the need to have a clarity of vision to see through the obscurity of history, the lack of which is an impediment for transcendental knowledge. Enlightenment has the oldest history than everything else for, it is the origin of all other forms of knowledge and insights. “It” is the original blessing of the God to mankind.
For the last three thousand years there have been wars in every part of the world, one race or community conquering another and so on. Yet in every generation there arises men and women endowed with limitless Enlightenment whose knowledge becomes obscured over time due to such aforesaid activities of men. Thus we should always consider what we have found as fragments of the original Message. This is how religions and doctrines have been founded, in a bid to save the wisdom of a Master from sinking into oblivion. Nevertheless, everything is impermanent by Nature. Even the greatest persons in the world like Shiva, Buddha, Jesus, and Zoroaster (the list is endless) have become absolutely forgotten and their Teachings used to sate bellies instead of Souls.

In the ancient times men and women were more interested in the fine arts and thus conducted much research on the subtlest of subjects. When Julius Caesar captured Alexandria in 48 B.C. he caused much destruction, by a raging fire, to the Library of Alexandria that contained much knowledge on world’s mysteries. Further destruction of the library occurred in A.D. 450 and this removed, permanently, from scholarship a priceless inheritance of Greek, Hebrew and Mesopotamian literature, and much of ancient Egypt and the “Lost Continent” Atlantis.

Sanskrit – A language of the gods

It is well known with what enthusiasm Voltaire (Paris, France, 18th Century) repeatedly praised the ancient wisdom of the Indian Mystics and Masters that lived thousands of years before his time. Some of the brightest thinkers of that time unhesitatingly expressed their opinion that whatever knowledge the Europeans had hitherto acquired of the mysteries of India’s most Enlightened men, was plainly only modern tradition. The same is the case to-day. They concurred that, for the highly cryptic literature and the Sanskrit language, they would have long to wait before they could gain a glimpse of the golds buried deeply in such dross.

At this, it is worth noting that translation of a text into whatever language does not necessarily guaranteeing the understanding of the matter in question. It takes more than grit to fathom symbolized Knowledge.

There is a time especially during the early Christian Era when many kingdoms (Rome, Alexandria, Constantinople, Babylon, Pataliputra, Ayodhya (and many others in north and south India), the Silk Route city-states, Chang-An, and so on) of the world flourished in many ways. Warfare, wealth, education and literacy had significantly enlarged and enriched these kingdoms. People enjoyed many sensual pleasures and as a result to the wont to attain fulfillment, such persons wanted greater meaning for their lives than simply EARNING and SPENDING.

At this times, the Greco-Judaic-Roman West beginning a “dark era” under the imperial Roman Christianity following the burning of the Alexandrian Library.

In the East (especially China), the governments allowed considerable social, spiritual and cultural progress to build up toward an eventual brilliance due to the large-scale adoption of Buddhist spirituality and civilization from India.

  1. You see the beauty because you particularly have an eye for pure clarity.

    I smoothen the curves of understanding because my aim here is to point at the Deathless that is ever missed by all civilizations because of the errant focus on the material only.

    Thanks.

  2. I shall. You remind me of the compassionate wisdom of Hindu god Parasurama where he says: “It is from me that you have learned the art of discharging ARROWS”.

    I believe that by arrows he refers to some great methods of communication that is free of the defects of weariness and stinginess (to offer knowledge).
    This brings up a new post in my mind: ” the unexcelled teaching “.

    Thanks so much for your loving kindness.

  3. We might start thinking we have a job to do in and as real life, not that we can manipulate the Creator, or that every action is meant or deserving to be rewarded, or that the Supreme Being owes us a bribe for doing the right things. We would stop being infants and start being children.

  4. Hahaha! You have made my day. I am so bored with these insurance theories. And how are you able to speak in such deep parables without a blink of the eye?

    You should teach me that skill if it falls within your ken to.

  5. Probably my upbringing as the daughter of a career military officer. Living in different countries with and around so many cultures, religions, and languages was the greatest gift to an open mind. My fondest memory is when at age 9 in Taiwan, my friends and I snuck into a Buddhist temple and peering over the railing of a divider saw a panorama of the Buddha’s life all carved and beautiful to behold… It drove home that there are many paths to Knowledge, many textures to the Sacred… and what matters is always asking the question… It almost makes up for being chased out by angry monks waving sticks!

  6. Hahaha! Again its me here bursting like a fool, imagining how you could gather the courage to sneak there, and at the stupid monks chasing innocent kids instead of teaching them meditation.

    Your background predisposed you to openness and ability to give things a second glance unlike most people in the modern world who are fond of judging phenomena at face value.

    I could prepare a splendid biography for you. Please tell me the languages that you learnt even if it is partially learning.

  7. 8 years in the industry… medical, personal lines, and then small commercial lines before I had enough karmic ribbon to weave a basket. I didn’t want any more…so now I am in the glorious field of retail (at least until the rest of my health gives out!)

  8. No need to be angry at the monks… They had too many American kids invading the sanctity of their temple and disrespecting it. I have managed to mangle bits of French, German and Chinese, settling on Spanish through college… before giving up due to the dialects.

  9. You are a true pearl!

    I studied little bit of Deütsch though I gave up due to lack of good tutoring. Am so surprised that you had the curiosity to grasp Mandarin.
    I only I understood any other widely spoken language other than language that alone would be a great edge, I would preach in all of them.

    Another thing, you mean Spanish has dialects? Can you explain further please?

  10. Wait. This somehow brings a beam of happiness in my face.

    I love this: karmic ribbon to weave a basket.

    There is so much I can relate with you especially that my contract ends next month. I long for something higher and more meaningful. I am already learning lots from you.

  11. Every country and many regions in many Spanish speaking countries have dialects. It is so crucial to grasp that many times people you speak to “pretend” to not understand because they DO know you are not a native speaker and are NOT sure if you are using the words correctly (like in idioms) or not… In their attempt to not embarrass you or misunderstand you, they remain mute. For Americans who prefer to learn by blundering through languages, this does not help the learning curve. As for Mandarin, I fell in love with the precision of pronunciation required, and the resulting natural lilt of the language…
