“The Vedas are the lighthouse of eternal wisdom leading man to salvation and inspiring him to supreme accomplishment.”
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”
Kalama Sutta – Siddhartha Gautama – Buddha (681 B.C. – 601 B.C.)
Just mentioned saying, the second one in order, is attributed to the Buddha, though there are many controversies about that in a sense whether he ever did say something like that, or he did not. I believe he was capable to say something like that because he was opposed and mistreated heavily to the level that he became an enemy of the state. But do you know why he became an enemy of the state and was supposed to go into exile to China? Well, it seems he became a torn in the heel of priests who were hiding the knowledge from the people on the big scale. They were hiding the knowledge about higher states of consciousness heavily. From one point of view, perhaps we can understand that. The thing is that darkness was descending, people lost interest and even capability to follow the highest principles of the Veda. Priests started to code their books and all Vedic literature. They said this is not for ignorant people. This is partially true, but there is one problem with such a practice. The problem lays in the fact these priests lost a lot of knowledge and have fallen with consciousness as well so they lost a skill to recognize who is ignorant and who is not. In order to hide the knowledge, they were coding Vedic texts, Vedic books, and Vedic literature in general, and they were coding … and coding … coding for many thousands of years … so that in a certain moment they have found themselves lost in coding, lost in translation so to say. They have lost the code how to read these books, and that most precious knowledge was lost even for them. Therefore, when such bright person as Buddha had occurred and got enlightenment very quickly, and when he had started to rise others toward enlightenment, at least five thousand according to some sources, well they considered him as an enemy who is opposing them. Nevertheless, now we are out of such scheme, we live in ascending world age with the permanent upliftment of consciousness, and with an enormous thirst for the pure knowledge, so we need to restore all that was lost throughout several millennia. Hope this essay on the true story of Buddha, when he was born, along with at least some details from his life, will give some contribution to that purification.
