The Lost Continent of Lemuria

The Lost Continent of Lemuria

Myths and Realities

 
The lost continent of Lemuria (Mu) was originally referenced in the works of several 19th century scientists.  Observing similarities between the geology and fauna of India and Madagascar, some scientists theorized that there once existed a huge land mass (Lemuria) in the Indian Ocean that spanned the two locales.  As with Atlantis, the days of Lemuria came to an end with a cataclysmic natural disaster that sank the continent into the sea.
 

Lemuria was originally an hypothesised continent in the southern Indian Ocean, proposed in 1860 by the geologist William T Blandford (1832-1905) as a means of explaining the presence of identical Permian rocks in South Africa and Gondwana (in southern India). Geologists noted that strata of Permian age in India, South Africa, Australia, and South America (245 to 286 million years ago) were almost identical in the types of sedimentary rocks that comprised them. In addition, these strata on these continents contained identical fossils of land plants, e.g. cordaites and "Glossopteris" and land animals, e.g. Therapsids. 

Because these land plants and animals could not have crossed the open sea and continents were thought to be immobile, geologists explained the presence of identical fossil plants and animals on India, Africa, South America, and Australia by postulating the existence of land bridges and even whole continents that had long since sunk beneath the oceans. In 1864, the English zoologist Philip Lutley Sclater (1829-1913) suggested the name Lemuria for this land bridge, and the name stuck.

Around the same time, Ernst Häckel (1834-1919), a German biologist, saw this as an explanation for the presence of lemurs in Madagascar and south-east Asia; he also proposed that lemurs were our ancestors and that this land bridge was the original home of humanity.

Haekel used it to explain the distribution of lemurs in Africa, India, Madagascar, and Malaya Peninsula. He proposed that this hypothetical land-bridge had stayed above water long enough for it have served as the means by which lemurs spread into these areas. The English biologist, Philip L. Scalter named this land bridge "Lemuria" because of its hypothesized association with lemurs. Thus, Lemuria was neither named nor conceived of by prehistoric people, but by geologists and biologists in the 1800s.

When plate tectonics and other more prosaic theories better explained the distribution of strata, fossils, and lemurs, it was widely accepted that Lemuria and other such continents and land bridges never really existed, e.g. Wicander and Monroe (1989).

Lemuria might have vanished into the realm of discarded evolutionary theories, had it not been for the Theosophists and, especially, Helena Petrovska Blavatsky (1831-1891). She had a varied background (from sweatshop worker to circus bareback rider, from mistress of a Slovenian singer to professional pianist) and in the 1870s was living in New York, where she discovered that she could find easy work as a medium. In 1875 she and her partner, Henry Steel Olcott (1832-1907), a New York lawyer who had left his family for her, founded the Theosophical Society and moved to India.

In 1882, Madame Blavatsky sent letters written by her alleged Master, Koot Hoomi Lal Sing (alleged to have ‘ascended’ in 1889), to an Anglo-Indian newspaper editor, although handwriting analysis later showed she had written them herself. The letters contained an eclectic mix of Western occultism and Indian mysticism, revealing a seven-based cosmology in which there are seven planes of existence, seven Root Races of humanity, seven bodies possessed by each human being and seven cycles of evolution. This later formed the basis of a massive work, The Secret Doctrine (1888), written in Europe after she had been forced to leave India when accomplices threatened to expose her magic feats as fraudulent.

Mme Blavatsky claimed that The Secret Doctrine was based on a lost Atlantean religious work, which she called The Stanzas of Dzyan, supposed to be the first book ever written. According to the Stanzas as revealed by Mme Blavatsky, the first humans had existed only on an astral plane, living in the ‘Imperishable Land’ at the North Pole. The Second Root Race also lived in the arctic, on the lost continent of Hyperborea. Like most other ‘lost continents’, Hyperborea broke up and sank beneath the icy waters of the Arctic Ocean. The third Root Race comprised the Lemurians. They were bandy-legged, egg-laying hermaphrodite apes (some with four arms, some with eyes in the back of their head), 3.7 m (twelve feet) tall. They were contemporary with dinosaurs, which they kept as domestic animals. When the Lemurians discovered sex, their fate was sealed and the continent followed Hyperborea in sinking beneath the waves. The offspring of the Lemurians’ sexual adventures was the fourth Root Race: fully human Atlanteans, guided into human form by adepts from Venus. After the drowning of Atlantis, the fifth Root Race evolved (in other words, ourselves); the sixth Root Race is about to evolve in North America, while the seventh will one day develop in South America.

The ordinary members of the Theosophical Society (who included perfectly rational and intelligent people) never seemed to see through Mme Blavatsky’s bizarre charade. She had made little effort to cover her tracks and her true history is easily read by those who wish to do so, but the Theosophical Society’s official biography resolutely ignores the facts to glorify its founder. It continues to regard Blavatsky as a saint and Lemuria and the rest as continents that once existed. The growing scientific understanding of geology has resulted in a chasm between the beliefs of Theosophy and scientific knowledge. The Society still exists, but no longer has a large or influential membership. Nevertheless, it is an important source for much of the New Age belief system.

The English Theosophist W. Scott-Elliot, who said he received his knowledge from the Theosophical Masters by "astral clairvoyance", writes in The Story of Atlantis & The Lost Lemuria (1896), that the sexual exploits of the Lemurians so revolted the spiritual beings, the Lhas, that they refused to follow the cosmic plan of becoming the first to incarnate into the bodies of the Lemurians. Scott-Elliot located his Lemuria not only in the Indian Ocean: He described it as stretching from the east coast of Africa across the Indian AND the Pacific Oceans.

A historically and biblically known event the Great Flood finally destroyed the great continent of Lemuria. There are  different stories that explain the origin of the great flood and the reasons. What was left behind after the great flood was a whole new world. The old histories of humanity had been virtually flooded away and all that was left were the oral stories and legends.

Is Sri Lanka part of Lemuria?

posted Mar 20, 2019, 11:36 PM by Pavithra LH   [ updated Mar 21, 2019, 4:24 AM ]


 Is Sri Lanka part of Lemuria?

There are many maps and other records pointing to us indicating Sri Lanka was once a part of a great land mass in the past. In the ancient folklore and stories about King Ravana says that his ancestors were the kings and queens of that great land next to India.( So was it a seperate land governed by a diffent race?)

In some of the writings talks Indian Suras were not very happy about the power these people of that land held and plotted to kill those kings often. At that time these races (of Sri Lanka) were worhsiping the sun while the Indians worshiped Devas/ Gods. Then again in Indian famous Ramayanaya talks about Ravana being a demon king, but that does not seems to be the case according to Sri Lankans ancient writings. Writings says he was part of a Yakka Gothraya (race)  also some records mentioned him being part of  a race called Asura who were blue colored humans. 

Even in Ptolemy's map, Sri Lanka has been declared a big state. Today, Sri Lanka is a small country in the world. But when we look at these maps we can see Sri Lanka being part of larger country that expanded up to Madagascar and on the other side reaching up to Australia. The question is what happened to this land?

NASA satalite image of a supposed Adams bridge that Rama took to come to  Sri Lanka.

Is this the mythical  ‘lost continent’ of Lemuria, or is this another land mass and its story that has been lost to us.?

The term Lemuria has its origins in the latter part of the 19 th century. The English geologist Philip Sclater was puzzled by the presence of lemur fossils in Madagascar and India but not in mainland Africa and the Middle East. Thus, in his 1864 article entitled ‘The Mammals of Madagascar’, Sclater proposed that Madagascar and India were once part of a larger continent, and named this missing landmass ‘Lemuria’. Sclater’s theory was accepted by the scientific community of that period as the explanation of the way lemurs could have migrated from Madagascar to India or vice versa in ancient times. With the emergence of the modern concepts of continental drift and plate tectonics, however, Sclater’s proposition of a submerged continent was no longer tenable. Yet, the idea of a lost continent refused to die, and some still believe that Lemuria was an actual continent that existed in the past. 

Russian occulist Blavatsky envisioned her Lemuria as covering a vast area. In her own words it stretched from

    ...the foot of the Himalayas, which separated it from the inland sea rolling its waves over what is now Tibet, Mongolia, and the great desert of Schamo (Gobi); from Chittagong, westward to Hardwar, and eastward to Assam.

From thence, it stretched South across what is known to us as Southern India, Ceylon, and Sumatra; then embracing on its way, as we go South, Madagascar on its right hand and Australia and Tasmania on its left, it ran down to within a few degrees of the Antarctic Circle; when, from Australia, an inland region on the Mother Continent in those ages, it extended far into the Pacific Ocean...

I will be posting some articles related to this for us to explore others ideas.

Sakwala Chakraya -Stargate of Sri Lanka

Sakwala Chakraya -Stargate of Sri Lanka

There seems to be a hypothasis that there might be a star gate in Sri Lanka.. This image is from a carving on one of the rock temples. 


Following  info was copied from http://lakdiva.org/sakwala/sakwala.html

Sakwala Chakraya

Sakwala Chakraya
(iii) Tisavewa Ruins.
Upon the completion of the three groups of ruined buildings situated immediately east of Ruwanveli Dagaba excavations were transferred to a fresh locality, about a mile to the south-west of the Udamaluwa (Sacred Bo Tree enclosure), containing ruins of an entirely different character from any yet exploited.
A ridge of granitic formation can easily be traced running on from the Vessagiri Rocks northwards, past Isuruminiya, below the bund of Tisavewa. Thence it crosses the Anuradhapura-Puttalam Road, and bisects the Mirisavetiya area and Basawakkulam tank; and trends ever north through the western portion ("Galge" and other rocks)+ of the Lankarama and Jetawanarama areas.
The portion of the ridge just beyond the northern confines of Isurumuniya Rock Temple lies at the very foot of the embankment of the tank (Tisavewa), and is marked by a line of rocks of less magnitude than the Isurumuniya boulders.
The rocks are mostly crowded together into two clusters (Y, Z), both resting upon the narrow ...leba.... ridge.
The ..... ...... separate entity consist of caves, structural buildings, and three exceptionally fine pokunu formed of dressed stone, the whole belonging either to the Isurumuniya sangharamaya or to a sister monastery adjoining it. The ruins at this ancient site, though comparatively isolated did not escape considerable modification by later time additions, into which brick and mortar freely entered.
Rocks Z.

Behind the pansala, south-west, is the second line of boulders (Z), separated from the bathing-house and northern cluster of rocks (Y) by 10 yards of open space. These southerly boulders, four or five in all, are both more massive and taller than those of the other group. The most southerly exhibits rectangular grooves of some building which once crowned its summit; both faces of two boulders, overhanging west and east, were adapted as cave shelters.

Text on this page extracted from an original copy of Annual Report.

The photographs were taken when I visited the site in 1991, and again in November 1995.

The site is unmarked and unknown to most tourist guides. Maybe it should remain that way until properly protected.

Page 9

Cave No 2 lies beneath the west face of the penultimate rock forming its back and roof and floor. It was entered by a few steps leading down from the rock ridge.
A worn, and hardly recognizable asanaya of bricks rests against the rock at back. To the left (north) of this seat, or alter, is cut shallowly on the steeply projecting rock face a great chakra, or circle 6 ft in diameter, scored by rectangular divisions containing figures (mostly small circles), the whole girt, as a tyred wheel, by a band on which is displayed variant piscine and crustacean life swimming round from right to left.
The centre of the chakra is filled by a large circle comprising seven concentric rings, within a square 1 ft 2 in., to which cross lines are drawn vertically and horizontally from the encircling hand, cutting the chakra into quadrants. Further, parallel lines divide the circles vertically into ten strips, or slices, varying in width from 3 in. to 9 in., but matching to left and right of the central vertical line.
All strips but the outer two are bisected by the horizontal base line and subdivided into dual or quadripartite partitions The outermost strips, unbisected, contain a single small circle, quadrisected by cross lines, and a figure of phallic suggestion. In each of the penultimate divisions right and left is a tiny circle in line with the horizontal bisection of the chakra, but nothing else. In the third pair are shown four more quadrisected circles, two and two, one in each of the upper and lower partitions left and right. The fourth strip to right contains four more such circles, bigger, and each in a separate partition. But that to left has compressed its circles into a quadripartite panel below the horizontal base line; leaving the upper panel free for four distinct diagrams - second seven.ringed circle (differing only in size from its larger counterpart in the centre of the chakra), beneath which are two umbrella~like emblems, and a pinnated three.forked figure -the whole interwined by a fret. Each of the eight divisions of the fifth strips, which meet as one broad band, above and below the concentric ringed circle on either side of the central vertical line of the chakra holds one of the small circles with cross lines ; the two left upper partitions containing also a square and a wavy diagonal line. Outside all these divisions is the 4 in tyre or band bounding the chakra.

This weird circular diagram, incised on the bare rock -even more unique in a way than the elephant bas-reliefs of Pokuna A-may with every show of reason claim to be an old-time cosmographical chart illustrating in naivest simplicity the Buddhistic notions of the universe.
The concentric circles with their interspaces at the centre of the chakra can assuredly mean only the Sakvala, in the centre of which rises Maha Meru, surrounded by the seven seas (Sidanta) and walls of rock (Yugandhara, &c.) which shut in that fabulous mountain, l,680,000 miles in height, half below, half above, the ocean's surface. Sun and moon (in the second strips) lie on either side of the Sakvala : round about in space are scattered innumerable other worlds represented by quadrisected circles.* Below and around is the "world of waters" (i.e., the circular band) in which swarm gigantic uncouth denizens-fish, turtle, crab, chank, and other marine fauna. !
This ancient "map of the world"-perhaps the oldest in existence is of quite extraordinary interest. Its presence here, within an eremite's cave at an out-of-the way nook of ancient Anuradhapura, testifies to the antiquity of that astronomical lore still pursued in some of the Buddhist monasteries of Ceylon.

No inscriptions occur at any of the caves; nor have any been discovered anywhere among these ruins.

How the Nag Hammadi scriptures were found

posted Jul 20, 2017, 12:23 AM by Pavithra LH   [ updated Jul 20, 2017, 12:25 AM ]

The Gnostic Gospels

The 52 texts discovered in Nag Hammadi, Egypt include 'secret' gospels poems and myths attributing to Jesus sayings and beliefs which are very different from the New Testament. Scholar Elaine Pagels explores these documents and their implications.

From The Gnostic Gospels
by Elaine Pagels
Vintage Books, New York: 1979
pp. xiii-xxiii

 In December 1945 an Arab peasant made an astonishing archeological discovery in Upper Egypt. Rumors obscured the circumstances of this find--perhaps because the discovery was accidental, and its sale on the black market illegal. For years even the identity of the discoverer remained unknown. One rumor held that he was a blood avenger; another, that he had made the find near the town of Naj 'Hammádì at the Jabal al-Tárif, a mountain honeycombed with more than 150 caves. Originally natural, some of these caves were cut and painted and used as grave sites as early as the sixth dynasty, some 4,300 years ago.

Thirty years later the discoverer himself, Muhammad 'Alí al-Sammán; told what happened. Shortly before he and his brothers avenged their father's murder in a blood feud, they had saddled their camels and gone out to the Jabal to dig for sabakh, a soft soil they used to fertilize their crops. Digging around a massive boulder, they hit a red earthenware jar, almost a meter high. Muhammad 'Alí hesitated to break the jar, considering that a jinn, or spirit, might live inside. But realizing that it might also contain gold, he raised his mattock, smashed the jar, and discovered inside thirteen papyrus books, bound in leather. Returning to his home in al-Qasr, Muhammad 'All dumped the books and loose papyrus leaves on the straw piled on the ground next to the oven. Muhammad's mother, 'Umm-Ahmad, admits that she burned much of the papyrus in the oven along with the straw she used to kindle the fire.

Different levels of spiritual evolution

posted Jun 23, 2017, 7:58 AM by Pavithra LH   [ updated Jun 23, 2017, 10:43 PM ]

Sometimes we tend to look at a person and ask ourselves, why can't they move beyond the level they are.? Why are they just keep on staying in that same spot for years? Can't they can work on their spiritual evolution more, it seems they have stopped somehow....? hmmmm

There might be a reason for this. Of cause we might see them trapped in another ego illusion but they can get free if they wanted to, so why? It might be that they are done with their spiritual agreement for this life time. They might be just learning or acquiring merits so they can complete their evolution on another life time. This might be a strange thing to say at a time like this as there seems to be so many people and so many opportunities and also much energies coming to assist us with our evolution faster as the earth itself it moving up.

In some cases with certain people it might not be the case. There are people who have agreements and abilities, this means mostly DNA capabilities in this life time. It seems some are here only to complete their soul level, this seems to consist majority of people. There are others who can go up to over soul level of their spiritual evolution in this life time. Then there are some who can go up to Avatar level, the amount of people that are on this stage seems to be lesser than over soul level. Also there are few who have come to complete their journey as Ascended masters.

All levels of beings are around us working to complete what they came here to do and finish the work or to continue their evolution next life time. Recent events with someone close to me caused me to really look at a situation and realize why some people seems to be giving up on their work. The reason seems to be that they are done for this life and it's a matter of finishing whatever they have to finish and move on. This was sad thing to realize but we all have our own paths and destinations.

Be careful for what you ask, you might get it

Be careful for what you ask, you might get it


Some of us are still driven by ego and its demands. Every day, it has a list of things that it wants. Unfortunately for us, we think ego is who we are and its demands are what our desires and needs are. If we are not aware of this situation, every moment our mind manipulates our emotions and we crave for these desires. Our emotions and our minds are trapped in this false fantasy reality every second of the day and are never free till we get what we think we wants. Ego self if so cunning with its trickery, we become obsessed. We are so convinced that we cannot live without them, so we do anything and everything to achieve these needs, desires.

This is the true for most of us, we live the life being tricked by ego and are working to fulfill its nefarious desires. When we believe these needs to be ours without really listening to our heart, our spirit, we give in to them. We go head over heels to convince ourselves and others around us that what we are after is the real thing and without them we cannot live. We have good excuses and reasons for why we need them and why we cannot live without them. And to us those reasons are true. So we pray to our guides, teams and God, asking to receive these needs.

Surprisingly, sometimes we get what we asked for and then after sometimes, we realize what we so happily received was not what we really want. It might give us temporary pleasure, gratification and the ego seems to be happy that it got it but all that does not last for long. Ego probably is asking for more or something else meanwhile our heart is telling us what we got was not really aligned to our highest good and in fact what we got is hurting us and effecting our spiritual evolution.

At this stage we slowly begin to realize why we got this when we asked for. It is because we needed to learn this lesson. We have been tricked by our mind, ego and its multitude of personalities. It has gotten us to crave for something that is hurting us and our spiritual journey. We might have given up things that we truly needed in order to get this superficial blahhh. Furthermore when we got this only we might have realized that this is not the real thing we needed, in fact if we listen carefully, we will know the reason why ego was using us to go after this.

Now, what we need is to change our thinking and not let ego and its desires take over us which buffers true desires of the spirit. Now is the time we see through the veil of lies and become self realized of who we are. This is not an easy task, as there are so many desires of the flesh, desires to cover up the emptiness it feels and other ego fears that are covered up as things that needed achieving etc. All this is what ego throws at us convincing that without them we cannot live. It's a well fabricated fantasy that is being woven over our minds convincing us this is what we need. But these are ego desires, fears and they are the reason we are continually trapped in this cycle. If we can see through ego desires and embrace the spiritual path and listen to our spirit then we are free of these ego traps.

Most times ego is so convincing, so we get trapped in its false fantasy of how the life should be and live our whole life trapped in a fantasy reality, trapped without knowing who we really are.

So when we ask for something, we have to be really sure of what we ask, or we might get what we have asked for and then regret for asking it. Spirit has a sense of fun so it might give us what we have asked for and let us have the pleasure of learning the lesson we needed to learn in the first place.

Going against others wishes

posted Mar 11, 2017, 11:50 PM by Pavithra LH   [ updated Mar 11, 2017, 11:51 PM ]


When someone did something to hurt you and your family or friends, you face a challenge of going against their wishes to heal your wounds. Most hold on to what happened, they like the wound and don't want healing to happen. Whatever the event was, it threatened their ego's image that it held and it is angry, it wants revenge, it wants the other go down, hard. The empty shell that ego held had a small crack with this event and the person responsible for this must pay, it says. It made an enemy out of this event and it won't let go.

This is how ego perceive the event and the person is unaware of the inner mechanics of how this works but for them they feel threatened, they in this case is ego in the driver seat. So they are looking for ways to tarnish the image of the other person and find ways to get back at the person.

Mean while you feel the pain but understand what has happened and know that the ego within you is hurt and you not are letting ego takes the lead in your mind. In fact you are looking for ways to forgive, let go of the pain and bring peace to you. You are bringing more and more awareness to the event and stay in the moment as ego complains. You are willing to mend relationships, forgive and move on but you have a huge challenge against you. The people around you do not want you to forgive, do not want you to have a relationship with the person that apparently hurt you. In some cases this is where we are with situations and relationships. We have to face our own inner distortions and others as well. It's a challenge to go against the wishes of the people around you. They stand on your way.

They ask you, don't you have shame? How can you forgive someone like that? What's wrong with you? That person hurt you, you must ever let them in. They seems to have completely forgotten or unaware of humanness, that people make mistakes, that who we are and what's the purpose of our existence. And they want to live their lives holding grudges, hurting others and having enemies in their life. In find, they find it enjoyable to talk about the other in a negative way and hurt their image, finding faults in their character and somehow or other make the other pay for what they have done.

In all these cases the ego is the one who got hurt and it is the one that is seeking revenge but we are so unaware of this fact, we think ego personality is who we are and we are giving in to this life style unaware of the consequences it brings to us. Living a spirit driven life among these kind of personalities is a challenge. Many ask frequently, including myself, how do you deal with them?, as they are a force against spirit driven life.

But there is a another fact that we rarely see. Life brings us people and situations to make us more aligned to sprit. So these are challenges, lessons that we must face; lean the lesson and move on. This is how life works, these are facts. If we don't see it this way we get hurt. We cannot personalize the event and say that it is a good or bad event. It is just an event that was brought in by life and we are to face it and move on. Everybody gets what they need, and that's how it works. We are not victims of the event, or the life. Otherwise we get dragged in to human drama and we think we are victims of life.

We all find our own ways to deal with situations, but we must remember it is all ego. Patience, understanding where they are coming from, seeing ego traps, finding neutral communication or non threatening communication so the ego do not feel challenged by us, explanations that might make the ego feel less threatened, finding peaceful resolution among people. Best way is to not let others ego feel threaten by you and your decision. However standing for what we believe and not letting go of our ideals and believe is a must. I say for all us, whatever the neutral method we choose we must not give up our way of life what we are building with eternal spirit. Those teachings and living must be in the forefront of our lives whatever we do.

Good luck

He who protects/live aligned to the Dharma is protected by Dharma - Buddha

One who lives aligned to the natural creational laws are protected by the natural laws. The Dharma or teachings of any religion that has teachings that are in alignment to the natural laws or explain how the natural laws work are there to support us.

When we learn and live by these Dharma or teachings then we align ourselves to the creation and its natural laws. These are the laws of one. Creational laws that are there for all beings and all thing. Things work in alignment to these laws in natural creation, the laws explain how the mechanics of creation work. We simply have forgotten what these laws are and live in disharmony of them. When we live in disharmony we cause harm to the creation as well as to ourselves.

The saying says that the ones who protects or in alignment to the Dharma are protected by the Dharma. It does not say it is done by any god, deity or entity. It says the Dharma is protecting those who are in align to it. Worshipping any entity or god is not mentioned in here. How can Dharma protect anyone, it simply is a teaching, a bunch of information explaining how to live? If we try to understand this, in this case Dharma is the explanation of how the laws, the mechanics of the creation works. When we live by them they assist us to be in alignment to the creation and its creational force. It gets us out of the way of living against the creational force and also assist us to be in alignment so the force can take care of us. So the result is the creation/creator can protects its children/creation.

The purpose of the creational force is to support the creation in whatever the way it works and protects the creation and its children. That means protects us, support us, provide for us, basically take care of us. When we live align to the force we allow it to do what it meant to do. But when we are against it, then it cannot take care of us. This is when we feel like we are being abandoned, nothing's working for us and all the support seems to be going the other way. When this happens we have to look and see how we are not living by the Dharma and make and attempt to live by them. When we are against this force, the nature, then what we create is artificial, and that takes lot of effort as we are doing something against the force, against the natural flaw. Then we feel that we have to work hard to make things happen. This is the way of the mind and its false self ego. We must learn to see ego's ways and what natural ways are so we can work with natural force, making things easy for us.

It's just like a leaf, it doesn't try to go against the wind, it simply allows the wind to take it where it suppose to go. There seems to be surrender and trust. No big effort is needed by the leaf to travel, it simply allow, by aligning to the laws, meaning be a part of the creation. If the leaf is communicating with the force then it must be asking the force to take it somewhere that is supporting whatever the purpose it suppose to be. From what we can see, there is effortlessness and a purpose to everything; that means this creational force is highly conscious and aware of everything that the creation needs. So being in alignment to it, and allow is what is being ask of us, if we want to live peacefully in this creation.

Many religious teachings were from masters who understood these laws. They leaned and lived by these laws so the creation expressed itself through them effortlessly. With this understanding, they explain what they know to others so they too can live by these laws. Some say they perform miracles, the creation is a miracle itself. If the creation is expressing itself through these masters then they too were used to perform miracles.

These masters gave example in the forms or parables or stories to make the person understand what they meant. Some understood and others did not. These teachings are something that the person must live by and become part of them, then only they can really 'know' what these teachings meant. Over time, some of the disciples wrote these teachings down in whatever the way they understood. Some of the teachings are accurate, some are not and the others are somewhat not sure what that meant to a normal person, or misunderstood by many; till they live by these teachings and really understood what the real or the hidden meaning behind them.

Over the last thousands of years some of these teachings were lost, re-written or misunderstood. Others were distorted by ego driven people who were hungry for power and control. What we have right now is a mix of everything, so our job is to figure it out and live by them, so we too can be protected by Dharma.

Dhammapada -

For your light reading, some of the Buddhist teachings that were translated from Pali text.

    Though little he recites the Sacred Texts but acts in accordance with the teaching, forsaking lust, hatred and ignorance, truly knowing, with mind well freed, clinging to naught here and here after, he shares the fruits of the Holy life. 

     He whose senses are subdued, like steeds well trained by a charioteer, he whose pride is destroyed and is free from the corruptions, - such a steadfast one even the gods hold dear.

    Like the earth, a balanced and well-disciplined person resents not. He is comparable to an Indrakhila. Like a pool, unsullied by mud, is; to such a balanced on life's wanderings do not arise.

      Health is the highest gain. Contentment is greatest wealth. The trusty are the best kinsmen. Nibbhana is the highest bliss.

    Hunger is the greatest disease. Aggregates are the greatest ill. Knowing this as it really is (the wise realize) Nibbhana, bliss supreme.

    Just as the merchant, with a small escort and a great wealth, avoids a perilous route, just as one desiring to live avoids the poison, even so should one shun evil things.

   Calm in his mind, calm in his speech, calm in his actions, who rightly knowing , is wholly freed, perfectly peaceful and equipoised.
