A Hindu-centric World-view

Abstract:

A linguistic framework for a Hindu world-view, based from within the SanAtana traditions, is presented; this finds Indian subcontinent as the geographical focal point of worldly affairs. Reasonably widely known (as implied by the author) among the Astika Wanderers since time immemorial – albeit here drawing upon available empirical detail – this world-view envisions the entanglements of Devata-s with the mundane realm.

Discussion:

Figure-A

Hindu-geo

         In Figure-A, two red lines are shown drawn across the India map:

   A vertical line running at Longitude [77.5°±1.0°]; a horizontal line at Latitude [10.0°±1.0°]. Their intersection point – just north of Kerala and Tamilnadu, and south of Karnataka – is earmarked here as the Origin point (KumAra-Granthi). Regions falling in the Left nADI of BhAratI are shown in red rectangular shades, whereas the rest of the regions (blue rectangular) belong to the Right nADI of BhAratI.

   The red regions are primarily Devis’ Kshetra-s/domains, the blue ones are primarily Devas’ Kshetra-s. In Deva-Kshetra, societies evolve as conservative, industrial, male dominant, and tend to practise systematized religions (Deva oriented). Devi-Kshetra cultures evolve as socialistic, creative, female oriented, and practise diverse localized religions (Devi oriented).

     These influences also culminate in a specific Triangular representation of India:

1) KaumAra-vertex (South); Prototypical

2) Ashvina-vertex (West); Sarasvati cultures

3) Hanumat-vertex (East); GAnga cultures

Figure-B

Hindu-world

   Next, in Figure-B the same red lines are extended throughout the globe. China, Russia (to an extent), South American, South African nations etc – as expected – fall in the Red regions, whereas Europe, Mid-East, Australia, etc are in the Blue. The nations beyond India can hardly be classified as Astika, so the modes of worship are not Hindu (though still classifiable from Hindu perspective), yet other indicators (e.g. socialistic/communist proclivity of Red, and liberal/conservative of Blue, etc) fit in perfectly with the model.

   The North American nations show roughly equal regions between Red and Blue, though not in an as diversified manner as India (which possesses the KumAra-Granthi).

   India’s diversity is a hidden gift, but if not properly handled by the policy makers and the intellectuals can easily devolve into mindless chaos and self destruction. Indians’ own detachment from their roots combined with steadily decreasing levels of intelligence makes the matter no better.

    I’m interested to know what studies this analysis is based on.

      Dear reader,
      here are the pointers:

      1. Tantra on rivers (Saraswati, Ganga and Yamuna referred to as different nADI-s, not in a fixed order) – a diachronic study. Meru parvata as the MerudaNDa (spine) of bhAratI.
      2. Extensive observations over some time span: of various Indian cultures.
      3. Origin Point (kumAra granthi): PalAnI and Krauncha narratives in PurANa-s.
      4. PalAnI KumAra temple coordinates: [10.4°N, 77.5°E]
      5. Indian Ocean, submerged land, KanyAkumArI, Samudra Manthana.
      6. KrishNa and RAma as archetypical Men of right and left orientations respectively. KrishNa ruled DwArakA (West), RAma AyodhyA (East).
      7. The unique feature (of ancient origin) of Idangai (“left handed”) and Valangai (“right handed”) tribes in Kerala and Tamilnadu.
