INDIA, THE OLDEST CULTURE?

india1


Why have we organized the association which is about to promote the Indian culture? Why so many young people turn themselves more and more to the east, specially to India?

The answer is very simple, because they are the oldest and the wisest and because of that they are able to give the answers to all questions that we, western people, are searching for centuries.. In this text we are not going to speak about beautiful Indian geographical relief or about language richness or multicultural population, but we are going to talk about something that make India very special and that is her oldness and the things that go with it. Let us look, in the beginning, one article from the newspapers.


The world oldest civilization is sunk town on Indian coast- 9 500 years old.

In the middle of January, 2002., Indian explorers announced some solar records, quadratic and orthogonal shape, on the depth of 40 m, near north west Indian coast, in Khambhat bay. Indian minister of science and technology ordered the cleaning of that place, and the result amazed the archeologists all over the world.


In the discovery place they found fossilized human bones, wood, stone tools, some ceramic parts and lots of other things that confirm this place as human colony. After some more analyzing, some extra structures were found which are seem to be the buildings that were some time in the past lying on the coast of river which was flowing from Indian continent to the sea. By the method of a radioactive carbon it is set out that this finding place is 9 500 years old, which is time near the last ice age.

If the result is authentic, this was 9 500 years old town, older than the Sumer civilization (which was, until now, considered the oldest known civilization) for couple of thousands years, which will radically change the picture of urban civilizations on our planet.

If some future investigations bring out some new information about the culture of this ancient city, and if it is restored to be Vedic by origin (what is very possible according to location of finding site), it will radically change the perspective of Indian history, which is now written from the pen of western archeologists.

From 19. century the big debate is lead between historiographers. When they came to India, Europeans concluded that between them and the Indian people must be some relation, because Sanskrit, Indian literary language, is very similar to European languages. Scientists from 19. century also concluded that Vedic (or Sanskrit) culture is older than the European cultures, and because of the language connection, it only has to mean that the European ancestors had had to come to Europe from India in some way. But they didn´t like the idea of Indian superiority, so the European explorers characterized the ancient towns from Ind valley such as Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro as non-Vedic, to conclude that the Vedic culture came in India 3 500 years ago, although in Vedas, ancient literary collections written in Sanskrit, there is no note that this culture has any other source except the Indian one.

There had been a different research done on that area. For example, Rg Veda, one of the oldest Vedic scriptures is telling us about powerful river called Saraswati. She flowed from Himalayas down to the Arabic sea, trough the aria of northwest India. Today such a river does not exist, which made explorers to conclude that Rg Veda is not telling us about that aria but some other aria outside the India where that one or similar river exist. Few years ago Indian archeologists started to examine the photography from American satellite and they noticed that drained bed beginning on Himalayas truly exist and it is ending in the bay Khambaht aria who is an old submerged finding place. Except that finding place, 80 to 100 more finding places of urban colonies are identified along that drained river bay.

There is a whole range that kind of texts supported by archeological proofs by which we can see where was origin of our civilization... Besides that, all Vedic scriptures and literatures are filled with information about Vedic civilization; state existing here since ancient times...Those civilizations where very advanced... which refers more to the spiritual then to the material advancement...Those Vedic states where perfectly arranged by following teachings of the Vedas. There are few spiritual heritages that are transmitting their teachings literally and verbally. There we can find plenty of information about Indian history... Unfortunately, modern ... science is rejecting all authorities trusting only to  unperfected sense perception...One of the biggest problems of their researching is that their own proofs are tying them and blocking  discoveries instead of opening them new dimensions.

For example, in India people where always cremated after they died... They believe that if the body is not burned then the soul stays attached to the body for a long time and it is suffering due that attachment...And when modern science has tried to find a proofs-human skeletons of ancient civilizations, she didn’t find anything. only thing they find where half monkeys whose body’s people didn’t cremated since they were not a part of human race...and what did they concluded? That, civilization there did not existed and that all of us have origin in monkeys... ridiculous!

According to Vedas, civilization on the aria of today India is to exist since ancient times, much further away than we are imagine it today... India is keeping so many secrets...Sanskrit; the oldest language of the planet is originating from India... Sanskrit is mother of all languages... what then to say regarding Indo European nation... from where are they coming from?! Vedas itself are the oldest scriptures on the planet...But this is not the most important thing about India and its age...The most important thing is that in India the world oldest holy books and the oldest and inmost knowledge about God and ourselves are taking roots. Bhagavad-gita, Srimad – Bhagavatam or Caitanya Caritamrta are unrivaled books in „all three worlds“... All of us are seeking, or where seeking the knowledge which will reveal everything to us and by which we will understand „everything“... We have found it, and you...if you want, you can contact us or you can visit us, we can help you in your research.
