“Sanatana Dharma or Hinduism is the most powerful, most sophisticated, most intelligent, most cutting-edge presentation of the Truth, left with the possibility to evolve more, open for the possibility of updation.”
– Paramapujya Paramahamsa Sri Nithyananda Swamiji
Vedic Civilization is the eternally living and eternally enlightened civilization, called Sanatana Hindu Dharma that traces its historical continuity from 1900 million years, the time period that marks the beginning of human civilization. This civilization flourished in the sacred land of Bharatvarsha. On the banks of Ganga-Sarasvati Civilization, in the forests of Naimisharanya, inhabited by millions of awakened beings and those on the path of awakening, exists the all-knowing spiritual seat of infinite knowledge or Sarvajnapeetha – the Divine throne graced by the all-knowing, all-powerful, all-pervading Source of Consciousness embodied as the Adi Guru, the original Master. Under the canopy of the celestial wish-fulfilling Banyan Tree or Kalpataru, the Sarvajnapeetha vibrates the Sacred Knowledge, grasped by the Divine view of the Vedic Rishis, the eternal sages.
The Vedas (sacred scriptures) such as the Rig Veda and Puranas (cosmic history), such as the Ramayana, Mahabharat and the Srimad Bhagavatam, give detailed records about the congregations of sages and saints in Naimisharanya, presided over by Incarnations and Enlightened Ones such as Sri VedaVeda Vyasa and Sanaka Rishi. Here were composed the world’s greatest scriptures and performed the grand sacrifices for world peace and conscious human evolution.
Thus, the epicenter of highest learning, teaching and transmitting the sacred sciences was the Naimisharanya, expanding into prestigious, global residential universities like Nalanda and Takshashila with extraordinary education and research. Here, knowledge transmission or deeksha (initiation) and expression of siddhis (mystical powers) happened by the Guru Parampara, the lineage of Living Enlightened Masters through continuous disciplic succession.
The ancient Seers or Rishis and Enlightened Masters of the Vedic times, as a collective consciousness, instituted cosmic research and development centers, dedicating millions of years of spiritual practices for discovering, nurturing and protecting the sacred truths for humanity. Their original revelations and mystical discoveries were systematically recorded and coded as the Vedic scriptures and transmitted in its pristine purity through the oral tradition of Guru-disciple lineage. They had access to reservoirs of knowledge and powers that decoded every field – science, technology, meditation, healing, yoga, medicine, education and lifestyle.
