This is the photo of the Ramayana Garden in Thailand. The first poem and the greatest was Ramayana, opined Aurobindo. When the poet Valmiki saw two birds mating and a native killing one of the two. He said " Ma Nishada ", meaning " Dont do that, for it is Sin, it is Evil, it is against the Law of Conscience"! Ma nishada pratishtantva magama shashvathi sama Yat krouncha midhunath eva avadhim kamamohitam Ramayana is an allegorical and epic poem.

As the Aryan Invasion Theorists argue, it is the not onslaught of the " Aryans" against the " Dravidians". The Aryan Invasion Theory has been proved wrong by scholars like Dr Konrad Elst, Dr Dennis Chandler, Aurobindo and Vivekananda. Man"s dual aspect is highlighted in this poem.

The Ego is the imperfect term in Man and Self or the Divine in the perfect term.
The Ego is the lower imperfect term of our being; Self is the higher, perfect term.
The Ego is symbolised as Ravana, the ten headed demon king. His ten heads represent Mind, Intelligence, processing Mind, Ego, Lust, greed, anger, avarice, jealousy, gluttony and sloth.
The Self is symbolised by Rama, who goes in search of Peace, Seetha, his beloved consort.

The great struggle for supremacy between good and evil, light and darkness, prosperity and adversity is the Ramayana, where the forces of the Ego clash with the forces of the Self. Ramayana is part of Buddhist lore and the Ramayana Garden is a testimony to this fact. This strengthens P N Oak"s theory that the mother civilization of all was Vedic. We were amazed to see Palazhi Madhanam, the Churning of the Ocean, depicted at Thai Suvarnabhoomi Airport. The Churning of the Ocean is allegorical, symbolising the great fight in the human bosom between Virtue and Vice.

The forces of Virtue, the celestials, the devas fight the forces of Vice, the demons, the asuras. In this fight Immortality is the end result and Immortality is nothing but Self Actualisation ! P N Oak"s theory that the base Civilization was Vedic from which everything began seems to be proved right ! Dr Kenneth Chandler averrs that the Vedic Civilizations is 10,000 years old. He writes in his thesis " The Origins of Vedic Civilization" .... "How Ancient is Vedic Civilization? Astronomical References in the Rig Veda and Other Evidence Evidence from other sources known since the late nineteenth century also tends to confirm the great antiquity of the Vedic tradition. Certain Vedic texts, for example, refer to astronomical events that took place in ancient astronomical time. By calculating the astronomical dates of these events, we thus gain another source of evidence that can be used to place the Rig Veda in a calculable time-frame.

A German scholar and an Indian scholar simultaneously discovered in 1889 that the Vedic Brahmana texts describe the Pleiades coinciding with the spring equinox. Older texts describe the spring equinox as falling in the constellation Orion. From a calculation of the precision of the equinoxes, it has been shown that the spring equinox lay in Orion in about 4,500 BC.

The German scholar, H. Jacobi, came to the conclusion that the Brahmanas are from a period around or older than 4,500 BC. Jacobi concludes that "the Rig Vedic period of culture lies anterior to the third pre-Christian millennium."22 B. Tilak, using similar astronomical calculations, estimates the time of the Rig Veda at 6,000 BC.23 More recently, Frawley has cited references in the Rig Veda to the winter solstice beginning in Aries. On this basis, he estimates that the antiquity of these verses of the Veda must go back at least to at least 6,500 BC.24

The dates Frawley gives for Vedic civilization are: Period 1. 6500-3100 BC, Pre-Harappan, early Rig Vedic Period 2. 3100-1900 BC, Mature Harappan 3100-1900, period of the Four Vedas Period 3. 1900-1000 BC, Late Harappan, late Vedic and Brahmana period Professor Dinesh Agrawal of Penn State University reviewed the evidence from a variety of sources and estimated the dates as follows: . Rig Vedic Age - 7000-4000 BC . End of Rig Vedic Age - 3750 BC . End of Ramayana-Mahabharat Period - 3000 BC . Development of Saraswati-Indus Civilization - 3000-2200 BC . Decline of Indus and Saraswati Civilization - 2200-1900 BC . Period of chaos and migration - 2000-1500 BC . Period of evolution of syncretic Hindu culture - 1400-250 BC The Taittiriya Samhita (6.5.3) places the constellation Pleiades at the winter solstice, which correlates with astronomical events that took place in 8,500 BC at the earliest. The Taittiriya Brahmana (3.1.2) refers to the Purvabhadrapada nakshatra as rising due east-an event that occurred no later than 10,000 BC, according to Dr. B.G.Siddharth of India"s Birla Science Institute. Since the Rig Veda is more ancient than the Brahmanas, this would put the Rig Veda before 10,000 BC. "
