Ancient Yoga exercises are only 120 years old

It took a British author Mark Singleton to nail the lies of Hindutva yoga peddlers. He has clearly proved beyond doubt that the systems of yoga exercises popular all over the world are not more than 120 years and plagiarized from European gymnastics. Yoga was popularized in India and abroad last century by the Iyengari Krishnamacharya (his disciples like Pattabhi Jois and B K S Iyengar), the obese Swami Sivananda (and the hordes of gluttonous greeedy swamis he spawned) and Yogendra (Yoga Institute, Mumbai).

The feudal king of Mysore, Krishnaraja Wodeyar (the fourth) was one of the key figures of the Hindu renaissance. The Wodeyar rulers were dummy rulers who were put into power by the British after the freedom fighter Tippu Sultan was assassinated by the British-Brahmin colonizers. The Wodeyars clan were a bunch of British sycophants whose main function was to loot the rich natural resources of Karnataka for the consumption of the British. The British provided these feudal lords all the protection and throw them some crumbs from their left overs.

The Wodeyars appointed Krishnamacharya as the Physical Training teacher for the palace along with several other European trainers. It is here that the shrewd Iyengari learnt the gymnastic physical postures and cooked up a mystical lineage for this and named it Yoga. It is the second nature of Brahmins to cook up such stories just like their cock and bull Puranas. The upper caste Hindu nationalists took no time in adopting this so called ‘Ancient Exercises’ into their mind cult curriculum in their shakas.

The editor of Dalitnation had many interaction with these yoga Gurus in our school life. In one instance at our high school in Mysore the fat pot bellied Pattabhi Jois once visited for a lecture and told us about the benefits of these ancient exercises supposedly revealed by their rishis. Many of us able bodied strong Dalit students laughed at the silly physical education lessons given by this pot bellied Brahmin. Pattabhi Jois talked about vegetarianism and how due to vegetarianism Brahmins are the most intelligent. At that time as an young boy we stood up and asked him if that were the case why Brahmins have not produced great scientists like Einstien, Newton, Copenicus, Neils Bohr and such. All these fellows were non-vegetarians. Even the so called Brahmin geniuses like Bhaskaracharya, Panini and others were not vegetarians.

We are now watching with glee when modern scholarship debunking all the lies of these Brahmins.

Post-Hindu India – What’s Gone Wrong

A few years ago the revolutionary thinker Professor Kancha Ilaiah proposed that we are going to be in a post-Hindu India from 2010. Dalits including ourselves had gotten into a celebratory mode on Prof Kancha’s forecast. We have been waiting for this post-Hindu world since hundreds of years. We are waiting for our chains to be broken and the ugly caste system dismantled.

At Dalitnation we have been researching and reviewing this with several of our friends who are social and political scientists, media personnel, social psychologists and literary luminaries. What we get is a bleak picture of the collective Dalit behavior and with this the post-Hindu India will never be a reality.

The regional TV channels, movies and newspapers all promote a Brahminical worldview which the Dalit people have internalized. There are programs on Astrology, Vastu, Ayurveda and Brahmin Classical music which educated Dalit people have taken to themselves as their culture. Our people in hordes go to pilgrimage to Tirupati, Vaishnavo Devi, Mantralaya, Sabri-Malai, Shiridi Sai Baba and other Hindu holy places. Brahmins have even appropriated the Ganja Smoking Muslim fakir Sai Baba into the Brahminical fold. Vedas are recited in Shirdi as a form of puja by Brahmin priests who control the whole of the economy in this pilgrim city. The wily Brahmins have been doing their usual tricks and opened up these places for Dalits to visit. Dalits now do Puja to placate planets and remove their so called negative effects. The Brahmin priests are having a field day and their business is booming more than ever before. Earlier only their jatwallahs used to do this. Now they have Dalits getting their services and paying for it. We know several educated Dalit IAS officers and scientists doing homa, havans and visiting temples for their promotion. Many of these neo-rich dalits practice yoga and meditation and have no revolutionary spirit left in them. The poorer people are all influenced by TV and media and watch patriarchal soap operas like the ones created by Balaji Telefilms. All this makes us sad.

Is this what Babasaheb wanted us to do. What happened to the conversion to Buddhism. What happened to Buddha and his Dhamma of rationality and equality. Why are our brethren sucked into the superstition of Brahminism. We have seen Navayana Buddhists worshiping the violent Hindu gods and goddesses like Vishnu, Shiva, Laksmi and Kali alongside the Buddha and not seeing the obvious contradiction. We see even Dalit laborers having pictures of the elephant Ganesha and the servant monkey god of slaves Hanuman. Dalits do house warming and marriage ceremonies the Brahminical way. What happened to the ten vows that Babasaheb gave us.

This is a warning to all the Dalits. Unless Dalits wake up and fight this monster of Brahminism there will be no reprieve for them from the slavery of the caste system. We should throw the whole of BRahminism in the gutter – lock, stock and barrel, baby with the bathwater.
WAKE UP DALITS AND LET US MAKE THE POST HINDU INDIA A REALITY
EDUCATE ORGANIZE AND AGITATE

Beef Food Festival Makes the Grass Eating Manuvadis Shiver

In April this year, the enterprising Dalits of Osmania University organized the Beef Food Festival. At Dalitnation we have been at the forefront of promoting beef, the food of our toiling Dalit brethren. Our inspiration VTR and Kancha Ilaiah have been working tirelessly to challenge the food imperialism imposed by the Hindutva criminals. What VTR, Kancha and we had written have been theory and conceptual. It took the Dalit youths of Hyderabad to  implement this and send shivers down the spines of the grass eating Brahmins and Banias represented by fascist organizations like ABVP. It is the beginning of a revolution. 

Beef is the food of Dalits. Our hardworking and working class people need the proteins. The leisure class Brahmins and Banias want to deny our basic food rights. They talk of their Gomata whom they worship. They want us to just like themselves drink the piss and eat the dung of Gomata. We have given a strong blow to the food imperialism by the beef festival and more of such things are going to follow.

The editor of Dalit Nation participated in the Beef festival and partook the delicious Beef biryani served. Each delicious morsel we ate was a body blow to the regressive Vedic culture and Brahminism. The day is not far away when the grass eating Brahmins will also start eating Beef just like their Vedic ancestors did.

We were lucky to hear great leaders like Kancha Ilaiah and the enchanting Dalit poet Ms. Meena Kandasamy at the revolutionary festival. At Dalit Nation we have been following this young lady and how she has blossomed into the great crusader that she is now. Her revolutionary poems have inspired Dalit women and men. The way she walked out of her abusive marriage with a sexually perverted Dalit Christian Communist showed her immense courage. Manuwadis and even so called Feminists swore at her when she walked off the sexually abusive relationship. They called her names and called her an attention seeking whore. But the brave Ms Meena never relented and is now the role model of all women who have been abused in their marriage by sexual perverts. This is also a message for all Dalit men that they cannot take the women for granted specially when they have inspirational role models like Ms Meena. We wish her well and wish that she continues to inspire Dalits with her revolutionary poetry which has the potential to smash Brahminism and Male Patriarcy.

We are also great admirers of her mother, Vasantha Kandasamy who is an illustrious professor of Mathematics and has fought vehemently against the Brahmin domination in the IIT Agraharam. Her landmark book on the problem of untouchability which is based on empirical mathematical framework is pure genius. She has smashed the citadels of Manuwadi worldview using Mathematics. She has used Fuzzy and Neutrosophic Cognitive Maps to analyze the views of the revolutionary Periyar E. V. Ramasamy. This is the power of Beef which Brahmins cannot understand. When the book was released the grass eating vegetarian Brahmins in IIT were dumbstruck by the sheer brilliance of the thesis. Their limited and bigoted minds could not comprehend the magnitude of her theories. This kind of research should have been given a Nobel prize but unfortunately the Chennai Brahmins began a conspiracy in the scientific community of India and has termed Vasanatha Kandasamy as a nutcase peddling in bogus theories. This is the fate of Dalit geniuses. We at Dalitnation stand by the Kandasamy daughter and mother duo and we want to assure them that they are not alone in battling the hydra headed Brahminical monster.

Jai Bhim

Mayavathi as PM – The Change has arrived

The general elections in India is just a couple of months away. As usual the main upper caste parties Congress and the BJP are blowing their trumpets in their manuwadi media. They are claiming that Rahul Gandhi (Congress) and Advani(BJP) are the prime minsters in waiting. But do they know what is the reality.

None of these parties are going to get a complete mandate. We have to thank the BJP for this. The Congress always represented the upper caste intrests and they used the Bahujan votes to come to power. In a democracy numbers means power. The BJP or the Brahmin Jati Party of Hindu terrorists fractured the Congress mandate by weaning away the upper caste votes from Congress. The BJP used the Ram Janma Bhoomi movement to rope in the Backward Castes. But that movement has died down as the Backward castes have realised that BJP is only intrested in their own Jati and they do not care for the Sudras. And about Dalits they do not even treat them as Humans. The only support BJP has now is from the 15% upper caste dwija vote bank. Even this 15% is fractured to a great extent. The Congress with thier pro upper caste policies have aliented the Bahujans. That is why there are so many regional parties like DMK, PMK,JD(S) and the leftists. All these people have literally killed the congress votebank.

The Manuwadis supporting the Brahmin Jati party has made their biggest mistake. Because now there is no way the BJP can come to power with their old and senile leader L.K.Advani. The butcher of Gujrath, the OBC Narendra Modi has no support outside Gujrath. BJP is just a dying party. Its use is over.

We at Dalit Nation want the Manuwadis to vote for BJP so that the Congress does not get a majority and there is a fractured mandate. And this is what is going to happen. In a fractured mandate our sister the revolutionary Dalit Leader Mayavathi will be the next prime minister of India. Even if the BSP gets forty seats, which is half of the seats in Uttar Pradesh, Mayavathi will come to power in Delhi. The left parties, the regional parties will support the Ambedkarite BSP and we will have the first Dalit Prime Minister of India. This election heralds the beggining of the end of Manuvadi Hindutva. But of course we want Hindutva to continue for some more time because that is how Hindu society will dis-integrate. Because Hindutva means upper caste.
We at Dalit Nation understand the forces of History. Just like we had a Black President in America we are going to have a Black untouchable prime minister of India. The Hindus are trembling and pissing in their pants. But you cannot prevent the forces of History.

Brahmin Deception through Dalai Lama

The Manuwadi Hindus destroyed Buddhism in its own land of birth. While Buddhism is widely spread across Asia, it had lost all traces in the land of its birth. Buddha was the greatest emancipator of Dalit Bahujans in India. He was the biggest challenger to manuwadis till Babasaheb came into picture. But the most cunning race on earth, the Brahmins infiltrated Buddhism and destroyed it in India. Adi Shankaracharya, the wily Brahmin pygmy priest destroyed Buddhism with the help of kings like Pushyamitra Sunga. The Brahmins destroyed the Buddha Viharas and converted the Buddhist Idols into Hindu gods. They made the great humanist Buddha into the ninth avatar of the inhuman Vishnu. The Brahmins are excellent fiction writers and their fictions are called Puranas. They have enslaved the people of India using these fictions.

What was once a humanitarian Buddhist country became the inhuman casteist India. It was as a result of Babasaheb that Buddhism was revived in India. The Dalit Bahujans got back their original religion. Babasaheb knew the cunning and scheming Brahmin minds very well and he wrote the ‘Buddha and his Dharma’, the greatest book of Buddhism ever written. In this book Babasaheb removed all the corruption introduced in the teachings of the Buddha by the Brahmin priests. The Brahminical karma and reincarnation theories were completely debunked by Babasaheb. Buddha was the original and the world’s foremost rationalist.

In the 1900’s there were even Brahmin Buddhist scholars like the Sarswat Brahmin Dharmanand Kosambi, father of D.D. Kosambi the intellectual leader of all Indian Marxists who are all decpective and disgised Brahmins. The Brahmins have a tradition called ‘Purva Paksha’, that is study the enemy well before attacking. These pseudo Buddhists like Kosambi are the people who studied Buddhism so that Brahmins can strategize against the enemies.  Babasaheb who understood the filthy Brahmin mind  and strategies more than anyone else, had studied Buddhism for twenty years before converting to the religion at the historic Nagpur ceremony in 1956. The Brahmins as usual had an eye on this conversion. They sniffed this threat.

At the same time as Babasaheb converted to Buddhism the Tibetian tyrant Dalai Lama was being kicked out by the Chinese. The Chinese were in the process of liberating the Tibetians from the tyranny of the monkhood of the corrupt lotus eating Lamas, which is no different from the Brahmin religious institutions of Shankaracharaya, Swami Narayana or the Veershaivas. The only difference is in the rituals and these monks do not even understand the basics of the Buddha’s teaching which is Humanistic Rationalism. The monks had exploited the toiling Tibetian masses, the dalits of Tibet for centuries through the rule of Dalai Lama and the corrupt regents. The Dalai Lama finally bundled his loot and transferred his money to Swiss banks and escaped to India with the help of the Brahmin Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of India . The Hindu Brahmins were waiting in 1959 at the Indo-Tibet border to welcome Dalai Lama. Nehru’s trusted friend the playboy prince of Oundh, Apa Panth was incharge of this operation.

The Dalai Lama was recognized by all the major Brahmins in India as a great religious leader. No wonder Dalai Lama has no problem sharing the podium with the Brahmin leaders. These Tibetian  lamas and Hindu Gurus worked together to counter the Ambedkar Buddhists. Dalai Lama has refused to associate himself with Navayana Buddhism of Ambedkar because his whole superstitious worldview and serfdom will collapse. Now Dalai Lama is featured in playboy magazines with Hollywood stars. He has a huge collection of gold watches and jewelry. He has brought huge tracts of land in France and has funded grape farming for the local wineries in Europe. He is no friend of the Dalits but a Brahmin stooge who visits all brahmin ashrams like Ramanashram, Osho Commune or Kanchi Kamakoti peetam or the art of decieving guru Sri Sri Ravishankar.

Dalits have to be very clear about deceptive Buddhists who infact are Brahminical agents thrusting the Manuwadi agenda. Our guide and beacon of light is Babasaheb Ambedkar and his great body of work. Dalits deviating from Ambedkar’s buddhism will pay the price and come under the yoke of Brahminical castesim. Our Dalit brethren should learn the lessons from history and not commit the same mistakes which resulted in our slavery in this inhuman manuwadi system. Through Dalit Nation we will continue to expose the Brahmins in the guise of Buddhists.

O Dalits Wake up

Our Inspiration V.T.Rajashekar, the greatest living intellectual in India and the greatest intellectual in India after Buddha and Ambedkar gave a moving speech in Mysore University on the death anniversary of Babasaheb. We were not able to attend this meeting as we were travelling in China. But many of our dalit intellectuals were extremely moved by this great speech. Below are some snippets from this great speech titled – ‘The Crisis in Dalit Movement’.

VTR mentioned that Ambedkar is father of India while Gandhi is just father of nation. And Gandhi’s nation is just upper caste nation consisting of 15% population. But Babasaheb is the father of SC/ST/BCs and Christian/Sikh/Muslims plus Hindus, he naturally becomes the father of all the seven principal “nations” living in India — automatically becoming the “Father of India”.

Why are the Dalits still going to Hindu temples and praying for Hindu gods. Don’t they see how the Brahmins are crushing us. Convert yourselves to Buddhism. Of course true buddhism of Babasaheb and not the brahminical Buddhism which teaches meditation. We have many members from dalit families who go to all these temples like Tirupathi, Dharmasthala and Vaishnavo Devi. These people are killing babasaheb and his work. They will remain slaves always. We converted to Buddhism many years ago but now this fat pot bellied bania called goenka and the zionist controlled Dalai lama are preaching and controlling the Dalit Buddhists by teaching them Brahminism and Vipassna Meditation in the name of Buddhism. The Buddha asked the dalits to wake up and crush the Hindus. VTR spoke about this in great detail.

Babasaheb said “Untouchables are not Hindu and were never Hindu”. Did he not say that? How many dalits can touch your heart and confess that you are not Hindu? You have Hindu names, you worship Hindu gods, you go to Hindu temple, you observe Hindu festivals. Yes, you are Hindu.

Babasaheb asked us to quit Hinduism and embrace Budhism. Did we do it?  When I was born I was a Hindu but later I kicked this gutter stuff.

At that time we had many revolutionary movements in the country. Several of our Dalit leaders like Siddiah and Joseph Dsouza of Dalit freedom Network have embraced christianity atleast they are better now. How many dalits still feel they are Hindus. Shame on them. 

What about the reservations? Have we have been able to fight and force the govt. to implement the constitutional reservations? We need to fight for reservations in Private sector, which is a family enterprise of some upper caste businessmen?

Quite a number of the senior officers do not disclose they are Dalit. They put on nama, kumkum, go to Tirupati. Do all sorts of pujas to please Brahmins. But no amount of eating Brahmin shit will please the rulers. In fact such cowardly fellows will be the first to be slaughtered.

Do you know that in Yajnas and Yagas it is only the tame animals like cow, sheep, lamb that are slaughtered and eaten? They don’t touch lion and tiger. Babasaheb was a lion. But we his children have become like pig, sheep, lamb. Read Babasaheb’s book, The Buddha & His Dhamma. The Budhism he propounded in it is different from the Budhism our people are following. When we go to Budhist functions. The Bhikkus at the conversion ceremony insist upon vegetarian food. Babasaheb was a meat-eater. Budha died out of eating pork. But our Budhists propagate vegetarianism. Shame on them. We dalits should eat what is required for us. We should fight against the ban on cow slaughter. How dare the brahmins deprive us of our food.

The Mahabodi soceity teaches brahmin buddhism. Beware of them. There is a powerful movement led by Brahmins and a Marwari Goenka to propagate Vipassana (meditation). But this again is not Babasaheb’s Budhism. Nobody has seen Babasaheb doing meditation or writing or speaking about meditation. All nonsense.Meditation is Brahmin Humbug. But many of our highly placed Dalit officials have fallen a prey to Vipassana.

Do you know that Budha was holding kadga (sword) and openly waging war against Brahmins? That is why the Brahmins killed Budhism and reduced it a non-violent, vegetarian stuff and our people have fallen a victim to this totally false Brahminical Budhism.

In other words our people have failed in taking the right path even in Budhism. And those couple of people who became Budhists are under the grip of Brahminism.

Women make half the world. The Dalit movement and the Ambedkar thoughts are confined only to men. Even in houses where Dalit Voice goes, only the men read it and then sleep. Their women visit Brahmin temples and influence their children in Hindu superstitions. Our Dalit women worship Hindu gods in their houses.

When a person calls himself an Ambedkarite and if he cannot influence his own wife, how can he influence the society? How can he transform his people?

Look at the Hindu terrorist party, RSS. They catch hold of only youth and women. That is how they grow and we become weak and weaker.

It is true that Truth is with us, justice is with us, history is with us, number is also with us. Yes.

Brahmins have nothing and yet they win because they have the right strategies and tactics. Ideology alone is not enough to win a battle. You need right strategies and tactics.

Babasaheb had given us the strategies and tactics — “Educate, Agitate, Organise”. But we by-heart and sing Thri Sarana blindly without understanding its meaning.

Dalit movement failed because of male domination. Keeping the youth and women out, we have cheated our Father and killed the Dalit movement.

Yet another serious problem, which virtually our entire community has completely missed its attention caught in the fierce current of the money-driven society operated by the Brahminical rulers. Thousands and thousands of starving Dalits and Tribals and even Backward Castes in Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, UP, Orissa etc. are rushing to big metro cities like Bombay, Bangalore, Delhi, Hyderabad etc. In these cities they do get two immediate relief. They get enough to eat, their hunger problem solved, and they are saved from the daily caste atrocities, abuses which are essential part of their village life.

But in their natural abode of their villages they were conscious of their caste as they lived in the midst of their caste people and formed part of their caste struggle. Once they moved to the urban jungle they forget their caste and join the millions of struggling “poor”. It is a long jump from “caste” to “class”, leading to total transformation in their mental make up. This is exactly what the Brahminical rulers want. And they succeeded in killing their caste anger and pushed them to the urban jungle of “class struggle”. From caste oppression to class exploitation. Brahmins love this because it is easier to dupe those singing the song of class struggle. We have the famous example of W. Bengal and Kerala where the Manuwadi marxists have killed the Dalit movement.

Then we have the menace of NGOs which is the total monopoly of the upper castes. As they get foreign funds, the Home Ministry packed with Brahmins are very careful that these funds do not fall into the hands of revolutionary sections. We have hardly any Dalit NGO in India. Most of the NGOs being upper caste, they make a song and dance of the Dalit movement and dupe the Dalits.

Today these NGOs have become a real menace to the Dalit movement as they are deeply involved in spotting the best Dalit male or female youth and recruiting them. Once our youth join the NGO, the fire in them is dead. They will no longer use the word “Dalit”. They are called “marginalised people”. Their entire vocabulary changes.

NGOs are a real menace, seriously engaged by the Brahminical rulers to destroy the last remaining Dalit movement. I found the menace very serious in Andhra Pradesh — diverting our people’s anger from issue to non-issue.

But in today’s money-driven society who is interested in Babasaheb’s thoughts? Will it bring money? Will it bring power? No.

In the absence of both money and power — twin craze that is driving today’s society — I find a bleak future for our people. Babasaheb taught us about the value-driven society. But today that society is dead.

Devadasis were degraded buddhist nuns

We researched Babsaheb Ambedkar and Jamnalal’s article on how the Budhist nuns were convertd into prostitutes by the Brahmin Priests. It is a heart wrenching story. We toured all over north karnataka and maharashtra interviewing and talking to the devadasis.  These Devadasis dont know anything about Buddhism. The priests have completely erased all the buddhist memories. The majority of the people who use Devadasis are upper caste lingayaths. These people still retain all their brahmin tendency. We asked the devadasis if they are willing to reconvert back to buddhism, but they don’t know anything about their roots. The brahmins have left no evidence that they had a Buddhist tradition. All these devadasis are picked at a young age from Dalit caste. Many Dalits also believe in this Devadasi sanctity. We were shocked to know about it. None of them know their glorious past. Thanks to Babasaheb and Jamnadas we know the truth which none of these people know.
