It is impossible for one to be internationalist without being a nationalist. Internationalism is possible only when nationalism becomes a fact, i.e. when peoples belonging to different countries have organized themselves and are able to act as one man. It is not nationalism that is evil, it is the narrowness, selfishness, exclusiveness which is the bane of modern nations which is evil. Each wants to profit at the expense of, and rise on the ruin of, the other.

Indian nationalism has struck a different path. It wants to organize itself or to find full self-expression for the benefit and service of humanity at large … God having cast my lot in the midst of the people of India, I should be untrue to my Maker if I failed to serve them. If I do not know how to serve them I shall never know how to serve humanity. And I cannot possibly go wrong so long as I do not harm other nations in the act of serving my country.

Mahatma Gandhi (Young India, 18 June 1925, p211)

ALL TRUTH PASSES THROUGH THREE STAGES; FIRST, IT IS RIDICULED, SECOND, IT IS VIOLENTLY OPPOSED, THIRD, IT IS ACCEPTED AS BEING SELF-EVIDENT. (Arthur Schopenhauer)

I WILL TELL YOU ONE THING FOR SURE. ONCE YOU GET TO THE POINT WHERE YOU ARE ACTUALLY DOING THINGS FOR TRUTH'S SAKE, THEN NOBODY CAN EVER TOUCH YOU AGAIN BECAUSE YOU ARE HARMONIZING WITH A GREATER POWER. (George Harrison)

The Legend of Karkati or Corona


Karkati the Demon Virus from North of Himalayas – Yoga Vasishta

Yoga Vasishta describes a Virus named Karkati which attacks Lungs, Heart, Liver causing piercing pain and Death (similar to Coronavirus or Covid-19, H1N1, SARS etc)

Vasishta Geeta or Yoga Vasishta is the content revealed by sage Vasishta to Lord Rama, when the latter was depressed after seeing the sorrow in this world.

Many know that Siddartha saw 3 scenes : Old, Sick and Deceased person. After seeing these three negative sights, Siddhārtha came upon the fourth sight, an ascetic who had devoted himself to finding the cause of human suffering. This sight gave him hope that he too might be released from the sufferings arising from being repeatedly reborn, and he resolved to follow the ascetic’s example and became Gautama Buddha.

But, centuries ago, Rama who was also born in Ikshvaku dynasty and after completing formal education, he wanted to understand the needs and real life situations of his citizens before becoming king.

Rama wandered in his ayodhya kingdom, disguised as a common man and found similar scenes. He was disturbed by the sickness, old age, deaths, sorrows of his people.

He return and remained depressed for many days.

When sage Viswamitra wanted Rama to come and protect his hermitage from demons like taaTaki, king Dasaratha calls out for Rama who does not show any interest in daily activities.

To answer his questions about creation cycles, Vasishta narrates a series of verses, which were later complied as Vasishta Geeta or Yoga Vasishta.

Listening to this, Rama comes out of his depression.


In this book Yoga Vasishta, the chapter Utpatti Prakarana (creation order) describes an episode named karkaTupaakhyaanam (the story of karkaTi).
