--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arya means Hindu
Aryaa means Aryan and sometimes Hindu

Dasyu means a person that cannot understand the Vedic way. The Iranic groups led by Vishvamitra in the Rigveda retaliated against the Puru tribe because they believed in a few different things. So they took with them their portion of the Rigveda. (Later founded Zoroastrianism)

Das means this same as Dasyu
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dasyu

Raksas means a canibal. it is not a racial term.
Ramayana
In the Ramayana, the term Arya can also apply to Raksasas or to Ravana, if their behaviour was "Aryan". In several instances, the Vanaras and Raksasas call themselves Arya. The monkey king Surgriva is called an Arya (Ram: 505102712) and he also speaks of his brother Valin as an Arya (Ram: 402402434). In another instance in the Ramayana, Ravana regards himself and his ministers as Aryas (Ram: 600600512).

In the Ramayana (202901512) Rama describes a Suta as Arya and the Raksasa Indrajit even calls Rama an Anarya (Ramayana: 607502112).

The Ramayana describes Rama as: arya sarva samascaiva sadaiva priyadarsanah "Arya, who worked for the equality of all and was dear to everyone."
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arya


Sanatan means "eternal" and is the word we use to describe our religion. It is also the name of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. It is used many times in Hindu scriptures, including the Bhagavad Gita.
Vaidic Dharma is used in the Bhagavat Purana
Arya Dharma is used in the Rigveda and Bhavisya Purana<!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

so is Vishwamitra the patriach of all the iranian peoples?

the puru tribe if i remember right, wrote the Rig Veda. if not, then who was it?

finally who are the iranians?? iran's real name is persia, which comes from purush or something similar. whose descendant are the iranians??

i have asked for this before and i ask again - can some one give me the names of all the children of Manu and which tribe/peoples they went on to father?? Also are ALL indians descended from Bharat ??
Vishvamitra had fifty or so sons; many of which were exiled to the northwest which was India's version of an Australian way station. Persian/Parsi is from Parsu (axe), not purush. For that matter, peshawar is from pushpa (flower), not from purush. Much of this false 'purush' etymology was pushed by "mohammad-is-kalki-avatar"-type sufi subterfuge. This material is more thoroughly covered by member Sushmita in the Iran and India thread.
thanks very much. sushmita despite our differences is one well informed member that i miss. wonder why she doesnt post anymore.


and now can someone pls answer the rest of the questions.


>>> can some one give me the names of all the children of Manu and which tribe/peoples they went on to father?? Also are ALL indians descended from Bharat ??

>>>the puru tribe if i remember right, wrote the Rig Veda. if not, then who was it?
also is the abrahamic fable of noah and his descendants stolen from the legend and names of descendands of Manu. wont be surprised if thats so, cos most of judaism is plagarised from zorastrianism, sumerian religion etc.

but as per the Rg Veda, explained here (III , 5) http://voiceofdharma.org/books/rig/ch6.htm,

"The DAsas of the Rigveda are opposed to the Aryas: since the word Arya refers to PUrus in general and the Bharatas in particular,"


so how come the ramayana is in contradiction to the Rg Veda.

ALSO, who exactly are the Raksasas and the Vanaras (the vanaras are most probably the "jungle people" ie. the Vanvasis, wrongly called adi vasis of india) ??
which leaves out the Raksasas...

confirmation here - same link and section as previous allusion -


"In sum: any analysis of the Rigveda and Avesta will make it clear that the main enemies of the Iranians in the Avesta, at least at the time of ZarathuStra, were the “Indoaryans”: i.e. the Vedic Aryans or PUrus"

Kaushal Garu, it has been crunchtime for a while - we were working towards organizing a Shankara Jayanthi celebrations here, and it went off well with great Participation in our little community. I do remember that I have an item pending on 'Sthree Dharma'. I will send you something when I get a chance.

Meanwhile, here is what I could find on the net. It is Aryabhatiya by Brahmagupta.

You may need to download Titus Unicode font.

Hope this helps.

Sunder.
Sunder, thank you, but i did not find the phrasing i was expecting for the particular veerse which is in Book 3(kalakriya pada). In this particular version it reads

ՙshastiabdānām ՙshastiis yadā vyatītās trayas ca yuga-pādās /

triadhika vimsatis abdās tadā iha mama janmanas atītās //

shastiabdānām ՙshastiis = 60 *60 ,3600 years after Kaliyuugai was 23 years old.which puts his DOB at 475 CE. But apparenntly thisis a fake.

So, I am still on the prowl for a edition which has never beentranslated into English and which may conhtain the phrase

shastiabdanam shadbhi (60*6) =360 years afterKaliyuga as mentioned by a couple of diffferent authors

what is the best source for authentic versions {preferably one that has not been translated into English already. As you may be aware i neednot emphasize the importance of Aryabhattiya in the pantheon ancient indian literature

<b>Brahmins lose domination over Sanskrit</b>!<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->AHMEDABAD: They dominate the merit list and are studying a language that has-- since the caste system took root-- been the privilege of the Brahmins.

<b>These are SC, ST and OBC students, studying Sanskrit at the Gujarat University, whose names occupy 70 per cent of the merit list! Of the 275 students in the open category merit list who cleared their bachelors for MA in Sanskrit at the University School of Languages, 200 are SCs, STs and OBCs. Seven of the top 10 on the list are from the backward classes.</b>

Professor and director of school of languages Vasantkumar Bhatt says, "Looks like the Brahmins have lost their monopoly in Sanskrit!" But for Kalol-based Mital Chavda, who tops the merit list at the school, it has nothing to do with caste. "Is English a language of the British anymore?" she argues. Agrees Mahesh Solanki, standing fifth on the merit list. Also an SC candidate, this son of a farmer from Radhanpur says, "No particular caste can lay their claim to a language."

<b>Both claim to have chosen Sanskrit for higher education, because they aspire to be teachers</b>. With most of these students hailing from villages around Ahmedabad and belonging to economically backward families, a secure job figures on top of their priority list. "Their financial position often leads them to take up Sanskrit which assures a job as a vidya sahayak in government schools," Bhatt says.

<b>Last year, 70 per cent of the students in MA-I and 69 per cent in MA-II who enrolled for undertaking study in Sanskrit at the university, were from the backward category. According to Bhatt, the dominance of these classes in taking up the Sanskrit course has been the dominating trend for the past six years-- </b>which takes you to the reservation debate once again.

While Chavda, daughter of a police constable, <b>feels that reservation does boost opportunities for the backward classes, another SC candidate for the MA programme, Haripriya Amin, is vehemently against it.

Global meet stresses propagation of Sanskrit, says V-C

Staff Reporter

13th World Sanskrit Conference held at Edinburgh

# Vice-Chancellor of Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha nominated by Union Ministry to take part in the meet
# More patronage to Sanskrit in alien land than in its birthplace, he says
# Urges Indian youth to draw inspiration from countries propagating the language

TIRUPATI: The 13th World Sanskrit Conference held at the Scottish capital of Edinburgh in England between July 10 and 14 laid stress on preservation and propagation of Sanskritic knowledge hidden in Sanskrit, said Harekrishna Satapathy, Vice-Chancellor of Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha.

Prof.Satapathy, who had been nominated by the Union Ministry of Human Resource Department, to take part in the meet, involved himself in activities like `Kavi Sammelan' and `Sastra Charcha'.

Apart from presenting a research paper on `Concept of suggestive meaning in Sahitya sastra' at the meet, he enthralled the audience by reciting some verses.

Pioneering research

Addressing his staff and students on the Vidyapeetha campus on his return on Tuesday, Prof. Satapathy lauded the efforts taken at the global level to decipher the words of wisdom hidden in the language. He was all praise for Mr. Brooks for his pioneering research on manuscripts and William Jones for forming the Asiatic Society of India to study Sanskrit.

"More than in its birthplace, the divine language is getting a better treatment in alien land," he said, pointing out that research on the language and manuscripta in the langage was being spearheaded by Germany and other European countries.

He appealed to the Indian youth to draw inspiration from and engage themselves in a healthy competition with them. Prof. Satapathy was later felicitated by Registrar S.S.Murthy and other faculty members.
