The Ramayan is a grand epic of artistic value endowed with mantras. It is the thorn of an enthusiastic salvar. It is a golden scripture and a clever blending of spiritual and material prosperity. On one hand, it is the golden palace of Ravan, which is the apex of the external world. On the other hand, it is the dispassionate lifestyle of Bhagwan Sri Ram which has conquered the external world. On one hand, the eagerness to attain corporal happiness, while on the other hoisting the flag of compassion. As a result of this, the victory song has been composed repressing the melancholy and misfortune. The real gist of the Ramayan is celebration of the highest form of ideology repelling the darkness and ignorance.
Now, we will take a glance at the tint of science. The substantial truth of Ramasetu has been keenly accepted by NASA which is the most credible research centre of the world. And it has been proclaimed that Bharat is the first country of the world which has stood in the front rank of obtaining the skill of bridge construction. But it is very unfortunate and a matter of regret that we consider it as unreal and imaginary as well as we conspire to force the truth to commit suicide. Like Ram Janmabhoomi, Ramasetu was also the famous debatable judicial review. As
Ram Janmabhoomi was justified after 500 years of long struggle and court judgement; similarly, Ramsetu was protected at the interference of the Supreme Court. It was saved from the dissolution process. The foremost agenda of the UPA Government was to construct Setu Samudram project, demolishing Ramsetu. Hence, the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi inaugurated the project in the presence of the then State Chief Minister Karunanidhi in 2006. People started to revolt against it in the country and abroad. Effect of the storm of the revolution thrilled the Madras High Court. Since then, on behalf of State and Central Government, “The lord Rama and Ramasetu was proclaimed as mythological tale, but it has no veracity”. But the Supreme Court ordered both State and Central Government to close the project in 2007. After that seconders of the project started to vomit the poison and questioned the existence of Bhagwan Ram such as ‘Who is Lord Ram? Where did he receive his engineering degree? Karunanidhi also heinously blamed that Lord Rama is a drunker.’ At last, the project was closed forever. Otherwise, there would be no entity of Ramsetu so far.
Actually the record of Bhagwan Shiba temple from Rameswaram reveals that the bridge was submerged in the 1480 floods. The glorious tale of Shri Ram is being recited in the two Bhagwan Shiba temples named Rameswaram and Talaimannar, which are situated at the either sides of the bridge. These two temples have been described in Ramayan too.
Many people doubt the floating stone which is a wonder for science also. Scientists have given different opinions regarding this. Some people say it floats due to silicon present in the stone but others say it is because of moss. It is said that as a hit brick floats on water, similarly the presence of silicon makes the stone empty. As a result it floats. Irruptions of stone from volcanoes, too, float on water. NASA scientists believe that the stone of Ramsetu floats because of moss. Soon after the last tsunami, some of such stone was found near Rameswaram. It came to light about the existence of floating stones.
Let us discuss more wonderful stones than the floating stone of Ramsetu. One can neither think nor dream of ‘Living stone’, it means stone has life. Stone can grow, welter and spread parentage.Though it seems wonderful, it is possible by the creater of the beautiful creation. We can find such stones in Romania. Kastesti is a small village in Romania. The village was once unknown but now it is very widely known for its unique stones. Even the place has been announced as a natural reservoir by UNESCO. The stone of this area is plain and edgeless named Troitas. Size of the stone increases when it touches water. Cement like some particle effuse, if it contacts with water. The effused particles later shape stones. It also moves automatically here and there and changes its place. As per the view of the locality, the very place was faced with a ferocious earthquake in 2004. And after that the very stone is found there. Won’t the future generation tell that it is also a fairy tale like Ramsetu? It is not crazy. Without understanding the reality of nature, we express it as unreal.
Bhagwan Sri Rama reached Sri Lanka crossing the bridge with His army. Bhagwan Hanuman had detected Goddess Sita, checked the efficiency and located the weak points in the kingdom of Ravan. Some raise the question about the construction of the bridge by Nala. Some even question the efficiency of Bhagwan Hanuman. In spite of the powerful sentinel at the confinement, Hanuman entered in a single jump into the very impregnable fort. Such a powerful jump can be known from the lifestyle of very high-level yogis, which seems impossible for us. Some unique skills of yoga science are the appearance of corpus in many places at a time, adoption of different corpus like increase and decrease from fly to mountain size and sometimes flying in the sky. Bhagwan Hanuman is considered as the greatest yogi after Bhagwan Shri Krishna, the king of yogis. So forming a fly, flying in the sky was not difficult for Him. Perhaps Bhagwan Hanuman was a yogi of an invisible cosmic character in the Ramayan. We may not doubt this if we know the proficient persons who acted like Hanuman. During pre-Independence, Maharishi Nagendra Nath Varudi was a similar perfected yogi. He was called the ‘flying yogi’ as he could fly for hours in the sky disappearing from his physical body. Shri Ramakrishna Paramahansa’s teacher Totapuri or Langudi Baba was a very successful corpus scholar.
The Ramayan is a historic grand epic of poetic style where the ideology of science has been described. If we would look sincerely and in-depth, we could find mountains of preserved accumulated precious stones
Now, turn to discuss another pivotal character of the Ramayan; Bhagwan Lakshman who was a scientist and a renowned moderator. He sacrificed his complete life for the sake of his elder brother Bhagwan Shri Rama. He went sleepless for 14 years too. The sleepless process is also a skill of yoga education. A person named Ramgopal Majumdar went also sleepless like Bhagwan Lakshman for 20 years. The very person called the Sleepless Baba belongs to Bajapur of Tarakeswar, Bangabhumi. Can we not accept Bhagwan Lakshman’s character of the Ramayan after the epitome? But the difficult yoga science is on the verge of atrophy. One of the active yoga gurus says in a tone of dolour that the educated yogas are not interested in spreading it. Another context related to Bhagwan Lakshman is about: ‘Nose cutting of Srupanakha’. It is said that self esteem and respect are more valuable than life and death. At that time, nose cutting was regarded as an unendurable punishment. On the contrary, cutting the nose could be joined. People used to say the adage of cutting their nose when they are insulted. It was reinforced for long years in different parts of India. When Haider Alli was fighting against the British in India, he had cut the nose of the defeated British commander. The wounded commander was recovered under the treatment of a Baidya. He started to spread the knowledge with great pleasure. The foxy British learnt the knowledge of surgery from Indian Baidyas and imposed various taxes on them. ‘Swadesi and self esteem’ movement speaker and nationalist thinker Rajeeb Deekhit speaks in a pathetic voice how our Gurukula and village Chatasali system, as well as teachers suffered at the circulation and interference of Macaulay’s education draft. In order to encourage their weaving industry, the skilled Indian weavers suffered. As a rest, this type of learning slowly receded from our motherland.
Let’s glimpse at the antagonist character who is known as Ravan, he was a special scientist. Pilotless planes are a special proficiency these days. Ravan’s Puspaka Biman was a comfortable pilotless plane. Apart from this, more than 25 kinds of such planes were prevalent at that time. As per the formula of ‘Smarangana Sutradhara’ by Maharishi Varadwaj, planes or flying vehicles are able to fly with the help of electric power received from the Sun’s ray, mercury and mixed with a chemical named Nakhya. Construction of a plane and how to fly are described in 236 verses of the holy book. Lord of fire, air, Varun and Indra were under the Ten Headed wise savant. If we talk in the language of science, he could control water, air and rain. Moreover, he was proficient in hydrology, aircraft and hydrosphere. So he was able to control his golden kingdom with the help of science.
The Ramayan is a historic grand epic of poetic style where the ideology of science has been described. If we would look sincerely and in-depth, we could find mountains of preserved accumulated precious stones. All that we need is a heuristic and investigative mindset.
