Verse from the Veda to be Peaceful

Recently, I watched a television program called Ancient Aliens, and pose a question, “If aliens helped bring about civilization long ago, where are they now when the civil of civilization seems about gone?”

I suspect there are billions of populated planets throughout the universe, although my interest in the show is the ancient historical sites portrayed. The show I watched featured the city of Caral in Peru. Caral or the ‘Sacred City of Caral-Supe’ is located in the Supe Valley, 120 miles north of Lima. It is considered the oldest city and civilization in the western hemisphere, with an unmatched diversity of monumental buildings, both ceremonial and administrative.

The culture developed around 3000 BC, contemporary with other early civilizations in Egypt, India, Samaria, and China. The site was discovered in 1948 and has an elaborate complex of temples (nineteen temple complexes scattered across 35 square miles), an amphitheater, plazas and residential buildings. Its pyramids are similar in appearance to those constructed in Egypt at the time.

Ruth Shady studied the site about 20 years ago and concluded that Caral was a peaceful society built on commerce and pleasure. No fortifications or weapons were found, similar to that of the Indus Valley Culture of Northwestern India and eastern Pakistan that developed about the same time. In Mohenjo-Daro, no fortifications or governmental buildings were found with the largest structure being a public bath. The people were likely modest and peaceful, their cities were noted for urban planning, baked brick houses with running water, bathrooms, and a sewer system constructed under the streets.

The Third Age, Tretayuga, was a peaceful time. Caral and the Indus Valley Culture were beginning when Tretayuga was ending around 3000 BC and they were peaceful cultures. Rishi Kanva Ghora founded the Vedaschool during Tretayuga, but by the time the Dark Age of Kaliyuga began around 700 BC conflicts had begun. The Kaliyuga is dark because no enlightened being graces the earth and with no light to follow people lose their way, and lose their way they did. Kaliyuga was a brutal, dangerous time to be alive, and people are still cruel and immoral during these early days of the Second Age, but in time, they will change. For your interest, the guidebook of the Vedaschool from the age of peace has been found and is currently in use at the Rgvedaschool.

For those to consider, the Holy Doctrine is compassion for all breathing creatures that cry. Be a peaceful caring person, consume a vegetarian diet and enjoy watching and listening to the creatures of the land, water, and air, and if one is suffering, care for them. It does not matter if they have two feet, four feet, or no feet and speak in a language you do not understand, treat them kindly so all can enjoy life upon the earth. Such is the doctrine of peace for the whole of the earth and here is a mantra to consider.

To stay with the knowledge leads to a favorable fortune and brilliance for people to observe a kind and peaceful being. Surrender is a virtue and mastering desire, and for that, consume the air to stay with is favorable for people to see.
