Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
~ James Baldwin.
History of India is nothing but the battle between Buddhism and Brahmanism.
~ Dr. B R Ambedkar.
In India, the majority of so-called Hindus are gullible people who follow Brahmanism in the form of sugar-coated Hinduism. From generation to generation Brahmans have spread many crooked stories to befool the masses to ensure the Dalit-Bahujans keep following Brahmanical culture. All these Brahmanical crooked stories have made such a psychological impact over people that they are bound to follow these rituals without knowing the reality behind these fraudulent stories!!
Hindus say: "Light lamps & Laxmi (money) will flow into your house." How can it be scientifically possible that lighting candles will produce money? If it had been true all people living in remote areas, people who don't have access to electricity would have become millionaires by now, as they use candles for lighting purpose throughout the year!! Goddess Laxmi might have forgotten the path to India this year or she would have made the fruits of the Indian economy reach the lowest of the low!!
Mr. Kovena rightly said in the book "The Hidden History" (page no. 19) that "Hindu means thief in the Persian language & Hindustan means a 'country of thieves'; Hindus feel proud of being thieves."
Jawaharlal Nehru in his book "Discovery of India" (page no. 204-5) writes that the festivals like Holi, Diwali & Dussehra are imitations of the Greek festivals. In page no. 235, Nehru explains that the Brahmins are not a caste but an organisation who would offer their daughters for their guests. Page no. 37 states "Hinduism as a faith is vague, amorphous, many sided, all things to all men. It is hardly possible to define it, or indeed to say definitely whether it is a religion or not, in the usual sense of the word. In its present form, and even in the past, it embraces many beliefs and practices, from the highest to the lowest, often opposed to or contradicting each other."
Here lies the reality of Diwali festival:
On this day, the Great Gana king (tribal) Bali was murdered by Waman, a Brahman, by cheating. If people want to celebrate this day, celebrate in the name of King Bali, a virtuous Bahujan king.
Bhikhu Mahamodgalyayan was murdered by Brahmans on this day. After the mass murder of Buddhists in the rule of Pushyamitra Shung this day was celebrated as "Eekadashi". Pushyamitra killed many Buddhists monks, destroyed Buddha Viharas, burnt Buddhist literature in 200 BC. Many Buddhist places were converted into Hindu temples. After this Buddhism started diminishing and Brahmanism started gaining strength.
When Aryans came from Egypt through Iran, China they brought their culture with them & the so called "Hindu Vedas" are an imitation of the Egyptian and Iranian books with little changes in rules etc.
"Ram", in whose name this festival is celebrated, is a fictitious character, even the Supreme Court of India has denied the existence of so-called "Ram". Hence where lies the logic of Hindus to celebrate? Many scholars do agree that "Pushyamitra Shung" was the so-called "Ram Chandar" who imposed many laws on Dalit-Bahujans & stopped their progress. Ramayana was written afterwards to befool non-Brahmans.
So called "Ram" (Pushyamitra Shung) killed Shudra rishi Shambuk, who was practicing meditation just because he was from a lower caste & lower caste people don't have the right to meditate!!
Hindus worship Laxmi, Goddess of money, but the nation-wide surveys conducted regularly prove that 77% of people still live on the daily income of Rs. 20 - what to eat and what to wear? In all developed countries like US, UK etc there are no gods and goddesses like Saraswati or Laxmi but still a majority of population in those countries are literate and rich in comparison to India. Hindus have embraced mental slavery which has shut down all doors to rational thinking. Apart from above, there is an increase in Asthma patients by 15% every year because of air pollution; by spending thousands, individually, on crackers we are doing nothing but increasing Asthma patients. We also hopee that by spending thousands on crackers Laxmi (money) will come into our lives. How is that possible? The problem with Hindus is that they never use rational thinking and are not ready to be truly literate. This makes the Indian heritage rich but people poor, or slaves meant for slavery.
"Diwali" is mentioned nowhere in the Ramayana of Rishi Valmiki or of Tulsidas. But the term Diwali finds a place in Jain books & exact dates are mentioned in Jain scriptures. As Buddha Purnima is celebrated, as the day of enlightenment of Lord Buddha, in the same way, in Jainism, "Diwali" is the day of nirvana of Lord Mahavira. But now this day's whole purpose & the facts behind its origin have vanished in time and gullible people are celebrating it with different motives - like making money & to do business.
All the fallacious myths serve as a gateway to establish Brahmanical culture and its allied festivals as harmless, but in reality these mythical stories are the deadliest weapon to destroy Dalit-Bahujan culture and to impose Brahmanical culture. Once Dalit-Bahujans lose their identity, they'll not have any other option than to follow the imposed Brahmanical culture. Hence we should immediately discard the Hindu rituals, ceremonies, pilgrimages, festivals etc which have made us slaves & we should follow the 22 vows given by Dr. B R Ambedkar if we really want our Dalit-Bahujan society to live with pride and dignity.
