Okay. Now that our readers have caught a whiff of the IGM veda mangoes, we will continue on to the initial New York mango dealer- acBSp.
Picking the gaudiya mango out of a dumpster where disposed by Aryavarsh' quality controllers and parivars of Truth, acBSp literally processed it for foreign consumption. Within the fist stanza of his Bhagavatam purport he went on the defensive to cover the stench of rotten fruit: acBSp- "Some Mayavadi scholars argue that Srimad-Bhagavatam was not compiled by Sri Vyasadeva. And some of them suggest that this book is a modern creation written by someone named Vopadeva (or Bopadeva)." Why didn't acBSp name the Mayavadi scholars? The answer is simple: if he did his foreign disciples would research and discover the gaudiya mango was discarded as a hybrid species grown under red-lights and unfit for spiritual consumption. Besides, and among several protesting scholars, the "Mayavadi" scholar most vociferous in investigation and exposure of the gaudiya grown mango was none other than Bharatvarsh' proclaimed and acknowledged "Last of the great Maharishis"- Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati. A.C. Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada, (not unlike Bhaktivinod who lived in the same era as Dayanand-ji) did not have the authentication, credence, or recognition outside his tiny sex-sect to present even a miniscule challenge to revelations published by the honorable sage. Here we re-present what acBSp sotto voce eluded to: an excerpt from Maharishi Dayanand's (1875) report:
Srimad Bhagavat- "This book was made by Bobadeva whose brother Jayadeva wrote Gitagovind. He has written some verses in his book called Himadri to the effect that he was the author of Shrimad Bhagavat. We had 3 leaves of that book with us, out of which the first one was lost. We have composed the following two verses of the same purport as those that were on the leaf that was lost. Whosoever cares to see the original verse should consult the Himadri.
"The Prime Minister Himadri said to Pundit Bobadeva, I have no time to read your book called the Shrimad Bhagavat or hear it read. Please make a brief summary of it in verse so that by reading it I may be briefly acquainted with the story of the Bhagavat." There were altogether 10 verses on the leaf that was lost. The following verses beginning with No. 11 that are given below are all the composition of Bobadeva:-
11. "Certainly. The story of the Bhagavat retold is as follows:- The five questions of Shaunaka and Suta's answers (are given) in three (verses)." HIMADRI.
12. Questions and (subject of) incarnations, Vyasa's disinclination for (writing) work, Narada's convincing speech supported by arguments and (an account of his) own birth.
13. Murder (of Arjuna's children) while asleep by Drona, protection of Parikshaita while he was in his mother's womb by Pandavas with arms, attainment of his position by Bhishmama, and Krishna's arrival at Dwarka.
14. The birth of Parikshita, who had heard Bhagavat read, Dhritrashtra's going away, Krishna's shuffling off his moral coil and then the Pandavas' departure for the Himalayas (have all been described in the Bhagavat).
15. Thus have 18 Chapters of the first Book of the Bhagavat been summarized in 18 padas (of this summary) in consecutive order. The king (Ydhistra) renounced his extensive kingdom in which justice was meted out to all, etc.,
This completes (the summary of) Book 1."
Thus was a brief summary of the 12 Chapters of Bhagavat prepared by Pundit Bobadeva and given to the Prime Minister Himadri. Whosoever wants to see a detailed account of it should consult the book called Himadri.' (Excerpt: Satyarth Prakash. By Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati).
In contrast to the profit adoration and distinction seeking IGM, Maharishi Dayanand made no business of his service to God and the Truth. At the time of his murder by poison, all he possessed was a bag of money (which he gave to his confessed assassin to help him escape,) a change of clothes, kharams and walking cane. BIF offers humble respects from the heart to Maharashi Dayanand Saraswati.
Now we compare acBSp's understanding of "Vedic knowledge" with true Vedic teachings. To do so we have picked the most spicy topic by our IGM mango chutney wallahs: WOMEN.
Rgveda 10.159, Chapter 1, 24p: The sun has gone up; my prosperity and happiness also have mounted high. Quite sure, I have regained the love of my husband, triumphing over my rivals. I am the emblem, I am the head, I am supreme and now I dictate; my husband must conform to my will; rivals now I have none. My sons are destroyers of my enemies; my daughter is a queen; and I am victorious. My and my husband?s love has a wide reputation. O enlightened, I have offered that oblation which has been offered by the one, the most illustrious and thus I have become renowned and most powerful; I have freed myself from my rival damsels. I am free from rivals; I am now the destructress of rivals, victorious and triumphant; I have seized other?s glory as if it were the wealth of weaker dames, who do not endure long. I have gained victory over these my rivals, so that I have my imperial sway over this hero and his people. (Book: Rgveda Samhita, Vol XIII)
acBSp: "As soon as a woman attains the age of puberty, she immediately becomes very much agitated by sexual desire. It is therefore the duty of the father to get his daughter married before she attains puberty. Otherwise she will be very much mortified by not having a husband." (Purport SB 4.25.42)
Atharva Veda Chapter 1, 8p: Girls should train themselves to become complete scholars and youthful through Brahmcharya and then enter married life. (Atharvaveda-Hindi Bhashya, Part 2, Author: Kshemkarandas Trivedi, Sarvadeshik Arya Pratinidhi Sabha, Delhi, Page 413-414)
Chapter 1: 8, 9 p: When girls ignore external objects and develops foresight and vibrant attitude through power of knowledge, she becomes provider of wealth, of skies and earth. Then she should marry an eligible husband. (Atharvaveda-Hindi Bhashya, Part 2, Author: Kshemkarandas Trivedi, Sarvadeshik Arya Pratinidhi Sabha, Delhi, Page 654)
Atharva 14.1.6: Parents should gift their daughter intellectuality and power of knowledge when she leaves for her husband?s home. They should give her a dowry of knowledge.
Chapter 1: 9 p:Protector of children, having definite knowledge, worth thousands of prayers and impressing all directions, O women, you accept prosperity. O wife of a deserving husband, teach your husband to enhance wealth.
Chapter 1: 9 p:The bride may please everyone at her husband?s home through her knowledge and noble qualities.
Atharva 7.46.3: Teach the husband ways of earning wealth
Lecture on BG Hawaii, February 3rd, 1975. acBSp: "To understand Brahman is not the business of tiny brain. Alpha-medhasan. There are two Sanskrit words, alpa-medhasa and sumedhasa. Alpa-medhasa means having little brain substance. Physiologically, within the brain there are brain substance. It is found that the brain substance in man is found up to 64 ounce. They are very highly intellectual persons. And in woman the brain substance is not found more than 34 ounce. You'll find, therefore, that there is no very great scientist, mathematician, philosopher, among women. You'll never find because their brain substance cannot go."
Atharva 7.38.4and 12.3.52: Women should take part in the legislative chambers and put their views on the forefront.
Rig ved 1.164.41: One ved, two ved, or four ved along with ayurved, dhanurved, gandharved, aarthved etc in addition with education, kalp, grammar, nirukt, astrology, meters i.e the six vedaang should be attained by the clear-minded woman, which is equivalent to the crystal-clear water and spread this diversified knowledge among the people.
Atharva 7.47.2: Oh woman! You know everything. Please provide us strength of prosperity and wealth.
Rig ved 3.31.1: The right is equal in the fathers property for both son and daughter.
Yajur 20.9: There are equal rights for men and women to be appointed as ruler.
Rig ved: Women should be expert (Page 122)
- Women should earn fame (Page 123)
- Women should ride on chariots (Page 123)
- Women should be scholars (Page 123)
- Women should be prosperous and wealthy (Page 125)
- Women should be intelligent and knowledgeable (Page 126)
- Women should be protectors of family and society and enlist in the army (Page 134, 136)
- Women should be illuminating (Page 137)
- Women should be providers of wealth, food and prosperity (Page 141- 146)
