Dates of Ramayana



Dates of sky views in Ramayana

           
The story of Shri Ram‘s life was first narrated by Maharishi Valmiki in the ‘Ramayan’ wherein he has made sequential astronomical references on important dates related to the life of Shri Ram. By entering the precise details of these planetary configurations using the software named ‘Planetarium Gold’ corresponding exact dates of these events can be known.

           
Date of Birth of Lord Ram -

In Baal Kand (1/18/8-10) it has been stated that Shri Ram was born on 9th tithi of Chaitra month during day time when the position of different planets vis-à-vis zodiac constellations and nakshatras was as under:

1. Sun in Aries        
2. Venus in Pisces
3. Mars in Capricorn 
4. Saturn in Libra
5. Jupiter rising in Cancer                    
6. Moon near star Punar vasu (Pollux) in Gemini Constellation


Amazing! See the sky view below shows exactly similar location of planets, stars and zodiac constellations on the 10th of January in the year 5114 BC if viewed from latitude/longitude of Ayodhya (25°N 81°E). By making use of software to convert solar calendar into lunar calendar, it was found that this date also happened to be the 9th day of Shukla Paksha in ‘Chaitra’ month and the time was around 12 to 1 noontime. This is exactly the time and date when Ramnavmi is celebrated all over India till date.


Date of Exile of Shri Ram

In Valmiki Ramayan it is mentioned in Ayodhya Kaand (2/4/18) that Dashratha wanted to make Shri Ram the king because Sun, Mars and Rahu had surrounded his nakshatra and normally under such planetary positions the king dies or becomes a victim of conspiracies. Zodiac sign of king Dashratha was Pisces and his nakshatra was Rewati. This planetary position was prevailing on the 5th of January 5089 BC and it was on this day that Shri Ram had to leave Ayodhya for 14 years. Thus he was 25 years old at that time (5114-5089) and there are several shlokas in Valmiki Ramayan which indicate that Shri Ram was 25 years old when he left Ayodhya for his 14 years of exile.


Solar Eclipse during War with Khar-Dushan

Ramayan refers to the solar eclipse at the time of war with Khar-Dushan in later half of 13th year of Shri Ram’s stay in the forests. Valmiki has also mentioned that it was Amavasya day and planet Mars was in the middle. When this data was entered, the sky view generated by Planetarium software indicated that there was a solar eclipse on 7th October, 5077 BC which could be seen from Panchvati (20° N; 73° E) On that date planetary configuration was the same as has been described by Valmiki i.e. Mars was in the middle; on one side were Mercury, Venus and Jupiter and on the other side were Sun, Moon and Saturn. (Fig. 2).

Other Eclipses mentioned in Ramayan
In Kishkindha kaand there is a reference to solar eclipse (4/15/3) on the day Bali was killed. Software shows a solar eclipse on 3rd April 5076 BC which was the only solar eclipse during the entire year.
In Sunder Kaand there is a reference to lunar eclipse when Hanuman spots Sita in Ashok Vatika (5/19/14, 5/29/7, 5/35/87). Sky view reveals lunar eclipse starting from 4.15 pm on 12th September 5076 BC from Colombo (7°N; 80°E).
Thus the planetary references in Valmiki Ramayan correspond to actual sky seen from the given places around 5100 BC in the same sequence as narrated. The way in which archaeological, paleobotanical, genetic, oceanographic, geological, ecological and remote sensing research reports corroborate the astronomical dates is amazing! These details will also be shared through our upcoming website, bhootkaal.com.
Lessons from the life of Lord Ram
The story of Shri Ram, when appreciated in its true perspective, would emerge as the biggest unifying factor for India. He remains unparalleled as an ideal son, an ideal brother, an ideal warrior and an ideal king; that is why he is described as Maryada Purushottam Ram!
He was a nationalist par excellence who left his kingdom to help the small kings located all over India to save their kingdoms from being usurped by wicked King Ravana of Sri Lanka and his relatives and devils like Khar, Dushan, Trishira and Maarich representing him in India.
Shri Ram moved from place to place to spread the message of unity by showing very high level of respect for the people from backward tribes and those considered untouchable. He embraced Guh Nishad who belonged to Kol tribe, considered to be a lower caste; he gave a strong message against untouchability by eating with great affection jootha berries of Bhilni (Shabri) of Bhil tribe. He sent his wife and children to be brought up and educated by Maharishi Valmiki who is stated to be Shudra but was a great scholar in the ancient world.
Shri Ram tried and succeeded in establishing victory of good over evil. He helped rishis and munis in living a life of honor. He got the kingdoms of small noble kings restored to them and acted as the biggest unifying factor. He set the finest example of a welfare state, in which the supreme duty of the king is working for the well being and happiness of masses.
We all need to strive to establish Ram Rajya in India for rich and poor of all communities and castes!

RAMSETHU - Faith vis-a-vis Reality


Ramsetu is a natural chain of islands, hills, shoals, submerged in Palk Strait from Dhanushkoti to Talaimannar, in which certain gaps have been filled up, indicating the contribution of human hand. One of the two surviving fillings can be seen in the picture revealing well defined boundaries and stone fillings. During visit to Rameshwaram, I got an extra-ordinary opportunity to observe the depth at which a part of Ramsethu was found submerged under the sea which measured 9.5 feet (about 3 meters) on the fisherman’s oar.

Ram’s Bridge – references in Ramayan

In Yuddh Kand, sarg 22 (shlokas 45-73) Valmiki has given graphic details of Lord Ram carrying out research and exploration to identify a suitable location for construction of the bridge. After identifying the location, he requested Sugriva to search for an expert Shilpakar who could construct such a bridge. Sugriva recommended the name of Nal, a famous shilpakar, who had the expertise similar to that of Vishwakarma in constructing the bridge. Accordingly Nal was called; he concurred that bridge could indeed to constructed at the location identified by Shri Ram. The construction of this bridge was completed under the supervision of Nal in five days by filling up of the gaps in the existing natural chain of land route consisting of islands, rocks and shoals (6/22/68-73).

The armymen of Lord Ram utilized various tools and implements for uprooting trees like saal, taar, coconut, mango, ashoka, arjun, bakul and bilva etc (6/22/47). With the help of various yantras they transported these stones, trees, creepers, and boulders to the seashore (2/22/60). Shilpakar Nal directed the armymen to stand with long ropes on either side and got the bridge constructed in five days by binding such transported materials together. Even the use of measuring tools has been described (6/22/65).

Rama's Bridge - its satellite image and oceanographic evidences:



The bridge is composed of a series of islands, rocks, and shoals and it is stated to be 30 kilometers long. It is found exactly at the location narrated in Valmiki Ramayan. See NASA picture of this Bridge given above.

Sea level curve prepared by the National Institute of Oceanography, Goa, corroborates the fact that sea level was about three meters lower around 5100 BC; thus corroborating the fact that in 5100 BC Ramsethu was above the sea level and could be used as a land route between Rameshwaram and Sri Lanka. Thus even fluctuations in sea levels corroborate references to Ramsethu in Ramayan.


Some very Interesting facts about Ramsethu

All attempts to create shipping route by completing the Sethu Samudram project have so far failed. Shri Subramnian Swamy summarized the report dated January 23, 2007 published in the Asian Age stating that “the Dredging Corporation of India’s (DCI) dredger imported from Holland had broken into two and sunk into the sea when it began work on the Ram Setu. The DCI crane that went to pick up the dredger pieces also broke and sank. The Russian engineer consultant who went to inspect the mishap broke his leg.” As a result all efforts made on behalf of the Government so far to destroy remains of Ram Setu have failed and consequently Sethusamudram Shipping Canal could not become a reality.

 We suggest that why not construct a the bridge as several multi-nationals are offering to construct the bridge under BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) scheme? Can one imagine the number of people from India who will walk over this reconstructed Ramsethu every year and the kind of profit the builder as well as Indian and Sri Lankan Governments would be able to earn! The relations between the two neighboring countries would drastically improve.

Ram Vanshavali

We all know that Shri Ram belonged to Suryavansh dynasty and the kings of this Vanshavali have been listed sequentially in Valmiki Ramayan and in Puranas. We completed these lists and compared these with the latest genetic studies. These also led to the conclusion that time of Lord Ram are around 7100 years back, who was the 64th eminent Ruler of this dynasty. Raja Sagar was 40th and and Samrat Bhagirath was 44th ruler of this dynasty, therefore their period was around 8000 years back. Look at the Geneology Charts and the genetic studies which corroborate the continuous development of indigenous civilization in India for last more than 10000 years -

JNU: Anti-national Agenda

My blood boils at what anti national agenda was shamelessly promoted and propagated in JNU. I am alarmed that this has the support of Congress led by Rahul Gandhi; it also has the support of Leftists led by Sitaram Yetchury. Have they all sold out their conscience to Pakistan and to China?

Is it freedom of speech or is it openly inviting people to wage war against India?
Can the freedom of speech be extended to this extent that the Constitution, the Supreme Court, true citizens of this country; all are abused and demeaned. Is it not time that someone should approach the Hon’ble Supreme Court for getting them punished for contempt of Court?

What is Modo Govt. doing; why its being so lenient to these traitors and terrorists being nurtured at our cost for so many years in JNU? Why all these people have forgotten that India is their homeland, their nurturer and their saviour! Are they being funded by outside agencies to put a stop to rising power of India?
They should all be tried for Sedition and they deserve ​to be crushed with iron hand.
 For Rahul Gandhi shouting India ki Barbadi ke slogans is patriotism and taking action against such traitors is anti-national! Should not he also be tried for treason?
Is it not the time for many congressmen, if they have any conscience or if Indian blood is running in their veins, to disagree with him publically and ​assert their patriotic spirit!
No doubt dissent is essence of democracy but patriotic spirit is the fulcrum of democracy. You can not be allowed to ask for the ruin of your own nation. Such people are the biggest enemies of this country and should be given exemplary punishment as per the law of land with no leniency what so ever of any kind should be shown.​

Sarasvati: Archaeology and Remote-sensing

Comprehensive and wide-ranging scientific evidences based on scientific researches carried out for more than 50 years, including Space imagery, Archaeology, Geology, Hydrology, Geography and Literature have given extremely credible evidences of origin, flow and decay of Sarasvati river! 

I give you only three glimpses out of 20 slides I have. Have a look at them and I am sure that you would start wondering why in History books taught to us for last more than 50 years, which were written by leftist historians, it is said as imaginary! Was demeaning and distorting India's heritage their only agenda? Or spreading this falsehood also is a part of freedom of speech which is meant to be used for destroying India; its past, present and future!

Dates of Rigveda references

 9000 years back, at the beginning of winter solstice (Uttarayan), pair of Ashwani nakshatras was seen in Aries Constellation just before sunrise, whereas 8000 years back, Ashwanis were no more visible on the horizon at Uttrayan beginning; instead Chitra nakshatra could be seen on the opposite side. Look at the two sky views along with the relevant Mantras from Rigveda –

Report of Exhibition - 2015

Amazing facts about ancient India
Revealed through-

EXHIBITION ON CULTURAL CONTINUITY FROM RIGVEDA TO ROBTICS
(17-23 September, 2015 in Lalit Kala Akademi)

Hosted by the Institute of Scientific Research on Vedas (I-SERVE)



THEME OF THE EXHIBITION

The latest scientific research reports from astronomy, archaeology, ecology, remote sensing etc. have proved that indigenous civilisation has been developing in India for last 10,000 years. But unfortunately most of our country men are unaware of these scientific evidences.

Through this exhibition we reconstructed the true history of ancient India based on such scientific evidences. Visitors could hear our most beloved former President, late Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, talking about such indigenous development of civilisation, relating the Ramayana references to 7000 BP and extolling the achievements of India in remote past.

First few exhibits provided glimpses of the background and theme of this exhibition. Thereafter on display were the sky views of references in Rigveda, which could be observed around 9000 - 7000 years back. The sky views of references in Ramayana could be seen sequentially around 7000 years back, right from Shri Ram’s date of birth to Hanuman’s meeting Sita Ji in Ashok Vatika. Sky simulations of references in Mahabharata could be observed sequentially around 5000 BP.

Some rare pictures of Ramsetu, with proof that it was at the walkable level around 7000 years back, were on display. Genealogy chart of Suryavanshi rulers, containing names of 63 predecessors and 59 successors of Lord Ram, were displayed along with the outcomes of latest DNA studies, which supported the genealogy as well astronomical dates of Ramayana.

A visitor could have a walk through more than 150 places visited by Shri Ram during his exile. A large number of visitors were attracted towards the picture of Kutumsar caves in Dandak vana; the carbon dating of grains found from there considers these as 7000 years old! 

The Exhibition displayed very exhaustive details of archaeological excavations carried out in Indus, Saraswati and Ganga regions. A close look at the pictures of 9000 to 5000 years old excavated artefacts, including jewellery, utensils, weapons, grains and terracotta etc., revealed their connection with references in Vedas and Epics and also their resemblance with such articles made in modern India, revealing cultural continuity for 9000 years.

The eventful journey of remote past, revealing how and when Ganga became the most venerated mighty river of India in place of Saraswati, was displayed through satellite images taken by ISRO and supported by geological studies. By the time a visitor reached the last exhibit, the true history of ancient India stood revealed as under-

·           There has been a constant development of civilization and culture in Indian sub continent for more than 10000 years.
·           Vedas represent the compilation of knowledge, whereas Ramayana and Mahabharata reveal the true history of ancient India.
·           There was not any Aryan invasion 3500 years back. In fact Vedic Aryans from India have been travelling to other countries of the world since 8000 BP for trade and for sharing knowledge.
·           Vedic culture provided the foundation on which the superstructure of Indian civilization is being laid till date. It is like its nurturer, river Saraswati, whose presence is seen and felt but it has become fashionable to deny its existence.
