Light on Vedic Heritage

        Veda means knowledge, it is basically only one (Moola-EkaVeda). Veda-Vyaasa divided it into 11 (Ekaadasha) viz. famous Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samaveda & Atharvaveda, Paraveda, Aparaveda, Ayurveda, Jyotirveda, Dhanurveda, Arthaveda, Lokaachaaraveda. If we traverse to the time before Veda-Sankalana by Veda-Vyaasa, 14 Upavedas based on these 4 branches, making a total of 18 Vedas goes to time immortal. Many Smrutis & Upanishats are based on them. Then we have several Shastra-Granthas and their Meemaamsaas, Brahamanas, Aranayakas, and also Sutras called as Vruttis.  

The basic Granthas are as follows:
  • Itihaasas                     12
  • Mahakaavyaas             7
  • Smrutis                       21 
  • Karma Samucchayas  24

British tried to steal this book, which was protected & submitted to  Mysore Maharaja, who were very generous, Dharma-bheerus, Shraddhalus, were Saadhakaas who did many anustaanaas also.

    Vena was the formulator of basic ArthaShaastra from Vedas. Punyakaama's ArthaShaastra in Atharvaveda tells the ways to measure the development of country in terms of:
    1. Economics (Arthikataa)
    2. Life Protection (Jeevana Bhadrataa)
    3. Food (Aahaara)
    4. Health (Aarogya)
    5. Education (Vidhyaa)
    6. Employment (Udyoga)
    7. Security (Rakshanaa)
    8. Spirituality (Aadhyaatmikataa)
    9. Production (Utpaadakataa)
    10. Transportation & Communication (Samparka-Vyavastaa)
    11. Patriotism (Desha-Bhakti)
    12. Natural Environmental Protection (Praakrutika-Parisara-Rakshanaa)
    13. Water Conservation (Nadi-Nada Jala Rakshanaa)
    14. National Power (Deshiya-Bala)
    15. Foreign Influence & Control (Videshi-Prabhaava & Niyantrana)
    16. Border Protection (Gadi-Bhadrataa)
  • Meemaamsa Sutras : (Data awaited)
There are 18 Kalpas. For each Kalpa, in terms of 6-6 parts making 18 x 6 = 96; Shannavati Sutras are there. Yaga-Yajnas will be performed based on the directions of these Sutras. There are 7 basic divisions (Shaakhas) in Rigveda:
  1. Shaakala
  2. BhaaShkala
  3. Auchatya
  4. Kaanva
  5. Kaatyaana
  6. Daalbhya
  7. Brahma
Eventhough Rigvedic Mantras are same, there is a variation in teaching & chanting for each Shaakha. 

Yajurveda is basically divided as Shukla + Krishna, for which there are 9 subdivisions (Nava-Khaanda). It has chanting & teaching variations based on the vast knowledge from 9 highly experienced sages. Totally 18 derivations. Here Dramila named division, are also called as KaaTaka. The group of people from KaaTaka Shaakha settled in KaaTmandu, the capital of Nepal. There were 2 divisions named Andhaas, based on which, the differentiation Krishna + Shukla has been done. Presently Andha PaaTa is called Andra PaaTa and Dramila PaaTa as Draavida PaaTa. But 18 x 2 = 36 x 3 Brahamana & Arayanaka variations lead to 108 Shaakhas. Hence the name Shatapatha 

Kaatyayana, Daalbhya, Gautama, Gobila, Shakti, Purukutsa, Khara, Raavana, PradooSha, Baana and many others had written Nirukta which explains the Vedic words in different manner. Shiksha, Vyakarana, Chanda, Nirukta, Jyotisha, Kalpas are the guidelines to witness Vedic knowledge. Based on Planetary motion, Mantra Parishkarana Vidhaana is narrated in Jyotisha. But no explanation on Phala Jyotishya. Tantra Shastra explains the subject of Jyotisha upto fixing of planets in particular angles (Ravana Jyotisha Sutras)! 

Saamaveda also basically has 18 Shaakhas. Saama Gaana with Raathantaraadi 56 Raagas, Shadjaadi 7 Swaras, can do anything & everything! Such a powerful Mantra Punjas are the Saamaveda Mantras. Also there are Vrunda, Vyuha, GooDa, Uragapatha, Khagapatha, Kharapada, Gopatha named 7 types of Saama divisions established in India during ancient ti. Present Afghanistan is named by the Gaandhaara Raaga of Samaveda. The ancient vast India established till Dakshina of Uttara Kuru, the great wall of China, including Himalayas. Even though in the places where there any evidences of groups having knowledge of any Veda Shaakhas remain, but Saama Shaakha people definitely reside there.

The Atharvaveda famous as Angira, is of 2 divisions namely Savya & Apasavya. 16 + 16 = 36 Shaakhas. All these possess the Mantra Punjas highly useful in Yaagas, different divisions of Sciene & technologies are explained in detail.

(This is just a simple introduction to the Vedic-literature, there are many more points left out, if elaborated, itself becomes one more big book!!)

7 paths towards realization of God

All the species are continually affected by 7 Poisons which will distract it from the actual path. These can be overcome by practicing 7 Vratas:

1. Satya Vrata: Truth is the one which is identified by inner Soul (Antaraatma). This is also called Mauna vrata, to be in silence which will make one to listen to inner vibration (Aantarika Vaani).

2. Dharma-Paalana: Dharma is the one which is approved by inner Soul. During the time when inner Soul accepts any conduct, it will be famous in the minds of people in the society.

3. Nyaya-Rakshana: Abiding to the Economy of the country, artlessness, no steals, etc., Totally not breaking the rules imposed for Social welfare.

4. Parisara-Poshana: The touches of fatherliness are eloquent of the real Human to any species. Any species shouldn't be tortured, they should be nourished with us. Sticking to the proper rule in food habits by nourishing the plant (Sasya) based food extracts, thereby abiding the Social rules.

5. Kaayaka-Dharma-Paalana: Taking oath that I will withhold the natural body power. Human should be Human (Maanava); Both Superhuman (Ati-Maanava) and Suppressed Humans (Ksheena-Maanava) perish sooner.

6. Vaachaka-Dharma-Paalana: Bad or harsh language (Durvachana), criticising others (Anya Dhushana), defaming work (Karma Nindana), scolding unobtainable (Alabhya Dhushana), non speaking of untruth. So, Silence (Mauna Vrata) is better in this case also.

7. Maanasika-Dharma-Paalana: This also comes in Mauna Vrata. Don't do what all you think! Judge properly the suitable & unsuitable circumstances with respect to past & future. 
Bhagavat-Sat-Chintana: If one follows the above 7 Vratas, then the pure (Satvika) thinking towards understanding the path shower - GOD (Bhagavanta) culminates itself.

Veda Arthanusandhaana

There are different Arthanusandhaana Vidhis in Brahmi:
1. Ahitaartha
2. Anujnaartha
3. Uddeshaartha / Apekshartha
4. Aagneyaartha / Krutyartha
5. Bhaavanaartha
6. Avyatikaartha

A single mantra of Veda is a combined form of these 6 Arthas. It will be integrated with special Chando Rahasya also. Rigveda has 8 inclusions for each mantra:
1. Smruti
2. Kalpa
3. Shaastra
4. Dharma
5. Jnaana
6. Chando
7. Devataa
8. Rushi

A Rigvedic Mantra is not effective without explicitly pronouncing the triplet of Rushi, Devata, Chandas. Other 5 will be included in Mantra itself. Jagadguru Shankaracharya who realized the Prakruti told that "Aadau Pranavamuccharya". Veda itself has the Prakruti. So Omkaara has to be prefixed to Mantra.

Saama Veda has Swara-Saptaka, means 7 divisions. Basically Saama Swaraas are of two types: Madhyama, Mandrastaaraka. 7 x 2 = 14 + Anunaasika at Starting & Ending = 16 Swaras are decided by Saama.

Shukla Yajurveda also says about 7 Swaras. Shukla Yajurveda is made of 2 divisions in which the (Proved) Shruta Bhaaga are 6. Seventh one has not been revealed. Taittariya Krishana Yajurveda gives 4, as moola yajurveda text is not available.

These are some of the keys to understand the meaning of  Veda Mantras.

Conceptions & Misconceptions about Vedas

Veda is a collection of several Vicharas included & made as a Grantha in 10 ways: "मन्थन, प्रयोग, चिकित्सा, ज्ञान, परिणाम, प्रागाथ, परिणय, विशेषण, परिचयut, पूर्णता" || It is all time, all place truth! It is not related to any particular religion, caste, place or time. It doesn't has any kind of सैद्धान्तिक पर-विरोध, धैव, देव दूषणं, or हिंसा | It is not at all मत - धर्म ग्रन्थ | It is a शुद्ध वैज्ञानिक संशोधना ग्रन्थ | It is not in Samskruta Bhaasha, it’s in Brahmi Bhaasha. Most of the modern age commentators have done व्याख्यन according their mind set & others quoted it as Vikruta Vyaakhyaana. But, Veda is not responsible for it; it’s the commentator! 

            Valmiki Maharshi wrote Ramayana. Several thousand people wrote commentaries on it. One has to be clear while reading the commentaries that, it’s the opinion of commentator only! Based on Max Muller’s arguments, people utter that there is animal sacrifice in Vedas. Some other commenced women withering in Vedas, other Politician posed that Veda is against people. But who is that person? Did he realize Vedas? Never thought of it also. 

If somebody writes some commentaries on women withering, non-vegetarianism, caste system, etc., which supports the unusual acts of many people, then it will be accepted as core reference. But is it the actual narration from Vedas? There is no violence regarding any species in this nature, anywhere in the Vedas. 

A poet has written that Sita was not the wife of Rama, but the wife of Lakshamana! It may be due to uncontrolled lust of the poet. One more poet wrote a chapter where a woman was un-clothed in the literature just for his delight. To save it, added the same to the Mahabharata and left disgrace to Vyasa. Sage Vyasa was not a person to have this kind of fallen mentality. If a Patta-Mahishi is brought to the King’s court wearing एक वस्त्र, that itself it great contempt. Draupadi swore that she won’t tie her hair till Dushyasana is assassinated. She did not swore that she won’t be clothed till Dushyasana is assassinated! Some corrupt people included all these kinds of unusual things inside great Epic like Mahabharata, just for self pleasure. A Sanskrit poet, due to भ्रान्त उद्वेग of his विकृत मनस्, narrated the physical beauty of a women, named it as Soundaryalahari and tagged Adiguru Shankaracharya to it. Since Acharya’s name was there, the stout believers wrote commentaries to give a godly touch and spiritual dimension to knowingly or unknowingly patch it. This is all the trumping technique used to mislead actual Vedic conceptions.

              Veda is a विशेष संशोधना ग्रन्थ  that has been written based on समग्र प्रपञ्च सृष्टि, स्थिति, लय विचार, जीवोत्पत्ति, वृद्धि, पूरकता | Currently this has to be subjected to विषेशाध्ययन, स्नातकोत्तर अध्ययन | There are people protesting vedas & also people living in the name of vedas but in a cunning manner! Never believe both of them. Real Vedic experts should give chance to नैजा अध्ययनासक्त | The society will be in great loss due to protesting Vedas. Let the ब्राह्मी मूल शब्द भण्डार get unlocked & our पुरातन विशेष ज्ञान be opened to society. There are solutions to thousands of problems due to which society is being suffered. So many people have played political game such that effective application of real vedic knowledge is kept out of society. This is all about the people who have preplanned to hide the special knowledge from common people. It's all due to the fear of the half cooked knowledge.

Next, the people who lead their life by the name of Vedas by posing Vedas as their property. They also act so due to the fear that their life may become tougher if everybody gets the knowledge of Vedas. Due to this they imposed the qualities like Madi and qualifications even to read Vedas!!! Society should never support the people who act like they are gods or messengers of god and what they say itself is Veda and what they utter itself is Mantra!

One more important subject of consideration is that Vedas should not be studied by the mindset laid by Macuely system of education which completely uprooted the the भारतीय परम्परा विध्यार्जना methodology. Lot of non-vedic school of thoughts in the name of different मत, धर्म, जाति, सिद्धान्त have been successful in suppressing the Vedic System of Education; in disguise! 

Veda is useful if & only if it is explored according to the पुरातन भारतीय परम्परा framework having "अध्ययन, जप, अनुष्ठान, उपासना, प्रयोग, उपसंहार" | If Vedas are studied in this framework, then the Vedic research is fruitful. To be success, one has to leave common संस्कृत व्यामोह and try to do more research in Brahmi language to realize Vedas.

Overall conclusion is that Veda is not a religious book. It’s not a book of Religious conducts (Dharma-Shastra). Not the जीवन निर्देशन नियम रूपक | It doesn’t restrict any particular way to lead the life. But it gives guidelines like “this is like this; what’s use if it is like this; if it is like this, then it will become like this etc.,” It unveils everything and gives the choice to lead your life to you only. If you use it and succeed, then it’s only you, not the Vedas! No one has to fight to protect Vedas. It is alive from crores of years and will be alive forever! It has independent existential power; it does self as well as survival of society. If we form our life style according guidelines which are all-time, all-place truth from Vedas, we will also be alive like Vedas forever.

Gomaata Vishwamaata - Part 1

The lives take birth in this Earth by the blessings of god, who mercifully directs them all the time. But invisible god specially comes into picture in terms of 6 Pratyaksha Dhaivas - Cow, Earth, Brahmana, Father, Mother, Guru among which, cow is superior. Thousands of real examples can be collected which are more than enough to prove that Cow worshippers attain supreme growth in terms of physical as well as spiritual.

Govinda Naama Smarana is Shresta only due to the prefix of "GO" in it,
hence Hari became Govinda due to GO,
GO is the Aavaasa Sthaana of 33 crore Devataas,
Devataas are the Energy patterns emerging as Sraava from 33 crore minute pores from GO-Sharira,

which multiplies enormously as GO becomes older & purifies the environment & sustains plants also,
hence its Shubha to have GO in front of anything,
Maandhaata's Vamsha flourished due to GO Seva,
GO fulfills the Istaartha Siddhi, if one worships it with Drudha Bhakti,
GO is Amruta Daate, Vishwa Maataa, Loka Maata, also Kaamadhenu which is Kaamitaarta Prada || 1 ||

Veda Drastaara Gawtama started praising the GO as "Aa Gaavo" & visualized several Riks,
Any severe problems (Baadhaa) won't step-in if one resides with GO due to which (s)he smells the dust spread by the GO-Paada, which itself cures several diseases, 
smelling (Aaghrana) the GO-Shira (head) itself gives ultimate knowledge (Jnana Siddhi) |
There is a saying whether Kings nourished GO's or GO's themselves nourished the King?
Kaurava & all other strong Kings who pride as Purushas did GO-Himsa exhausted badly,
Kauravas including Atirathas like Drona, Krupa, Karna, Ashwattamas shamelessly lost battle against
Shikhandi || 2 ||

GO itself is the VedaMaataa, GO is the NaadaMaataa,
GO is not just the Praani-Roopa, it’s the representative of different forms of species,
This Earth is stood in its position due to GO-Chaitanya,
Neglecting GO will result in extinct of all species,
Cows protected the world by Ksheera-Sudhaa, nourished the Vaishwaanaaraagni,
due to which the happily satisfied people were filled with the Veda Vidhya by GO's love,
which ruled out ignorance & declared human as intellectual. Now human is becoming utterly ignorant just because of detachment from GO || 3 ||
Feelings should be there with GO, Bandhutwa with GO releases stress & all other problems,
Understanding the feelings of GO itself gives Sukha-Sampada,
Krishna who himself is Govinda, became famous as god just because of the GO-Sevaa,
Driving force Shiva has feelings with this Hari, so worldly problems vanish due to GO,
GOmaya, GOmutra, GOksheera, Dadhi, Navaneeta, Sarpisha are the Moola-Chaitanyas of the 7 Lokaas || 4 ||
GO takes less input, but gives enormous output in various areas like agriculture, production, medicine, atmosphere, water, plants, human, power, food, etc.,
any medicine in this world will work only due to internal energy wave filled by GO-taranga,
the female conceiving power , male potency & Brahma Jnana due to Urdhwa Reta is due to GO,
they vary the secretion of Sraava from their body according to the seasonal variations & fill the
atmosphere by medicinal energy,

just by the air blown by the tail movement deflects harmful microbes, 
all the byproducts like its sweat, urine, dung, secretion from head, ear, back bone etc., are nothing but energy patterns.
Ear secretion controls poisonous bacterias, secretion from back-bone gives good medicare,
The place where thousands of cows are nourished, will be cool by less global warming & Agni-Bhaya will be reduced. || 5 ||
GO provides Psychological balance to human, 
2 hours GO-Sevaa is much beneficial than 12 hours mantra chanting, 
it gives benefits like property, children, longevity, health, knowledge etc., are uncountable,
Noncommercial scientific study can be prove that Panchagavya is very good medicine,
cow & related husbandry purifies atmosphere as well as sun rays thereby gives healthy light & sight,

“Shatam Meshaan Vakshye Dhenum” – husbandry of hundreds of rams, goats, is equal to one GO,
cow dung is natural fertilizer by which Saatvik grain production increases,
Jeevaanusandhaana Lakshana in Saama Gaana Praakaara is given by GO, it became GO-Saama,
No yagna-yaagas happen without GO,
GO doesn’t smokes out, tractors doesn’t give dung! || 6 ||

Rishis did GO-Sevaa, Jamadagni’s knowledgeous cow was tried to be kidnapped by KaartaVeerya,
Vasista’s Saatvika Jnana is due to GO named Nandini that had the power to give anything,
Vishwamitra fought for it, lost battle, did tapasya, got boon from Brahma, but rejected & asked to be
called as Brahmarshi only if it is given by Vasista, it’s the power of GO-Sevaa,

Trimurti Swaroopa Dattaatreya lives always with GO, Krishna also was GOpaalaka, but are Krishna
Bhaktaas? real Krishna Bhakta is the one who does GO-Seva & its worship,
Jagat Ksheeramayam – All Charaachara including solar system in this Galaxy itself is in Ksheera-Patha (Milky way) ! From Aakaasha-Ganga, till Pruthvi Tatwa, in all the species, the cow milk participates as Jeeva-Satwa, but GO never does self-praise, GO is the ultimately self-satisfied species which doesn’t has a bit of ego or selfishness ! || 7 ||

Sutra Granthas mention about Gopadma-Vruta, Gokulastami-Vruta, Gopooja, Gomukha Prasava Shanti, Godaana, Gavaa-Shraddha, Bahudakshina-Sharaddha, Gograasa-Vrata, Gopatakramana-Vrata, Goksheera-Vrata, Godaanika-Vrata, Gopadma-Vrata, Gokshura-Vrata, Gopinda-Shraddha, Daana Vrata, Madhuparkaadi-Vrata, Atiti-Satkaara-Vrata, Yaaga-Yagna, Poorvottara-Shodasha-Karma’s, etc., everywhere Sutrakaaras had given importance to GO;

Gokulastami-Vrata was intended to study the 8 generations of genetic variation because only GO can
see its 8th generation, Gopadma-Vrata nourishes skin & gives the required things for the nourishment of Jeeva. Similarly all the vratas are intended to study one or the other concept. Rather than killing the rats, monkeys, chimps, in the name of modern science, cow farming is more than enough for any research in any area of Science! || 8 ||

Puranas elaborate the importance of GO, we see 14 battles just to acquire GO which was considered as crucial property. In several Sthala-Puranas there is a story of cow feeding milk to a tapaswi covered by mud. Every child in Karnataka was learning the humanity & Satya-Prajna just by the story of Punyakoti.

But now we have lots of law & orders where people swear to utter truth but they never! So 18 Puranas, 18 Upapuranas, 26 other Upapuranas, Sthala-Puranas, Aakhyayikaas, etc., give one or the other story related to GO. There are stories where cows protected man from disasters like floods, protected from falling trees, etc., Some of the Purana-Purashas like Vasumanta, Sujnana, Deva, Dakshinamurthy, Ruchika, Gobila, Devala, Vishwavasu, Kinnara, etc., originated from Go-Garbha. At the end of some Maha-Yaagas, King was insisted to go inside GO-Garbha, come back & get himself purified to receive Yaga-Phala. 

In a chapter named “GOLoka Charitamruta” of a purana, there is a narration of how all charaachara’s of this nature sustain in the form of GO. It’s all due to one Amsha of GO present in them. Garuda Purana gives an instance of how the dead person gains good position by Vrushotsarga Karmanga. Brahmanda Purana says that a Dhenu named Vasu gives birth to human children, who became famous as Asta-Vasus. Caesarian was done by Vinata to a Go to protect it from death (Yama) are also narrated. Then Yama curses Vinata to interfere in his rule. This leads to birth of handicapped child named Aruna, who becomes Saarathi of Surya and till now driving whole solar system. 

There were techniques of growth of human baby by combining human Beeja+Raja in Cow! All genetics in the name of GO-tra System was developed by GO itself. Gotra means "Gaayanti Traayate iti Gotra". The hereditary stability is achieved only by the praising of GO.

Go-hatya Mahaapaapam. Krishna played a trick on Balarama who touched a Go which was about to die, later it died, Balarama went to Teerta-Yaatra & thus main strength of Kauravas was not present in Mahabharatha. || 9 ||

Considering Ayurveda Granthas by Sharnghyadhara, Charaka, Sushruta, Vagbhata, Chikitsaa-Saara-
Samgraha, Dhanvantari, Ratnakara, Naadi-Jnana, Bharadwaja, Kapila, Kusumakara, Jnati, Chanakya,
Shakuni, Shalya, Vikarna, Dhrona, BruhanniGhantu, Astanga-Hrudaya-Samhita, Bhaishajya Ratnavali, Vaidya-Saara-Samgraha, Moolika-Parichaya, Vruksha Sahasra Varnana, Kanda Shataparnika, Haarita Samhita, Lataa Parichaya, Komala Nigantu, Somashrava Samhita
, etc., has importance GO & its byproducts in several ways. || 10 ||

Rajya Shastra in Manu Siddhanta, Vidura Mata, Yudishtira Mata, Brughu Mata, Chanakya Mata,
Shalivahana Mata, Vikrama Mata
, etc., they instructed King to strictly do Go-Seva & its protection.
Ingress of Kali was due to illusion created by Kali inside an inverted GO in Bali’s kingdom, which was released by Yudistira & Kali Yuga started! So Kali can be kept out from its effects, only by Nitya GOPooja.

Manu instructed strictly to have separate place for cows in villages. The property measure was
with respect to GO. There 1 Paada = 2 Cow + 1 Calf + 1 Ox, 4 Paadas = 1 Step, a farmer having 1 Step (Nade) was eligible to farm 16 division (Madi) Krushi. 14 farmers = 1 Banta does financial support, 12 Bantas = 1 Raaya, 12 Raaya’s small portion of grains were given as tax to = 1 Jameendaara.  

Brugu says that the cow husbandry & milk production in a country should never decrease 40%. Like this he gives 27 rules for Rajyaanga. If all 27 are balanced properly, the kingdom is called as Mahi. Chanakya named Vishnu Sharma gives importance of cow husbandry, its different uses in administration and makes it mandatory for every citizen to have at least one cow.  

Vikrama flourished by Go-Paalana. In his rule, there were punishments till death sentence for GO-Hatya. Cowboys were extreme Vidwamsas during Vikrama. So a student who was not at all performing well in any studies, was mandatorily made as Gopaalaka, because just by the GO-Seva (s)he can attain the knowledge which even cannot be attained by attending continuous regular classes! The Shastra, Mantra, Science which we say, we know now, was known to a common cow boy in olden days! 

The great Shaka Purusha Shalivahana’s army were nothing but cows, horses, elephants, but without chariots! He won battles by animals! He was rationalist who protested the Jaati (Varna) Vyavastaa. He was the leader in Bhaasha Vijnana as can be seen in his works like Shuka-Saarikaa-Pralaapana, Mesha-Kukkuta-Yuddha-Vidhi, Pakshi-Bhaashaa-Vijnana, Gajaashwa-Pariksha, Gaja-Mohana-Vidhaana, Ashwa-Hrudaya, Gopaala-Vruttanta, Gokulaastama-Prayoga, etc.,

When there was a severe Kshaama during his rule, his 17 ministers narrate different processes which
gave importance to protect GO strength. 11th minister says about different Annas, 12th minister
Subuddhi says about how to get Anna which is both physical & intellectual strength:
“Shaishave Garbhamaataraha, Baalye Dhenum dadhaati, Yavvane Pashavaha, Gaavaa santi

13th minister Chanda says about 3 Dhees from Surya, Vidhya and “Ut Gaah”. This is called Maha divya which gives strength to sustain cold, hot, disasters, hunger, thirst, etc., 14th minister Kauravya gives importance of GO-Vrushabha in Yagna-Yaagas to overcome Kshaama. 15th minister Kaushika gives importance of protection of all species and restricts himsa of any species in Yaaga, and proposes Adwara. Also gives importance of Tretaagni Anushtaana from GoMukha. So 16th minister Runamukta summarizes important point that “Prajaa Rakshana, Aahaara, Vidhya” are the duties of a King. So only GO can give Aahaara & Vidhya! When GO does these, you can look through border & other issues. Just by the physiological model of GO, he explains the whole Rajya Shastra! The final Amaatya points out all matter related to cow and concludes that :

“ GO-Brahmanebyah Subhamastu Nityam Loka Samastaa Sukhino Bhavantu ”. 

More details are there in Atharva Veda. So Shalivaahana was able to gain victory on Kaala, and thus became Shaka Purasha and now also we follow his calander || 11 ||  

Nyaya Shastra has links to GO, where a difficult decision was judged by doing GO-Pradakshina, which gives proper knowledge about the accused! || 12 ||

But now we only see competition, commercialism, eating all the organisms just like Raakshaas, no unity, so many diseases, global warming, floods, droughts, Aahara-Vihaara-Vyaapaara dosha, destruction of nature, etc., etc,. are all due to neglecting of GO, GO-hatya and main reason behind all these is foreign sentiments – “Vidheshi Vyaamoha”. Pralaya won’t happen! But numerous disasters will happen if GOSamrakshana decreases below 40%! ||13||
