More than 2500 years ago Kapilavastu was a small kingdom in the Himalayan regions. Gouthama was the son of a Kapila king Suddhodana. This young man brought a wonderful social revolution, putting aside all Hindu religious ceremonies and rituals. He brought a casteless society into vogue. He was vexed with the existing atrocities of the religious heads, the hubbub of Yagnas and the hotch potch ceremonials. He practiced Yoga for minds reopening without following any method, mantra or Guru. He was the first Yogi in those days, which claimed Self-realization. Before that every Rishi or saint aspired god realization and Moksha in the trodden paths.

As fables in circulation reveal, an old crippled woman, a dead corpse is incidental. They might not have happened at all. He was highly educated and a learned scholar. He rose to the level of criticizing the authenticity of the Vedas and Vedangas. He developed a kind of hatred toward religion. Then he renounced his beautiful wife and son to find Truth by himself.

In the beginning days, Mantra and Tantra had no place in Buddhism. Replacement of Hinduism by a casteless society was the main object of Buddha. To reach the target, he drew swords on Hindu religious customs and rituals. He strongly opposed all kinds of worship in the name of gods. He turned himself a theist and declared war on god’s kingdom. Common people that are vexed with caste discrimination accepted Buddha and his teaching. So, the worship of Gods came to an end, all types of rituals lost their potency. Re-birth theory and Karma principle were left out completely. Man is totally left with work, based on purely human principles. Thus Gouthama Buddha injected new blood into the veins of common people and was successful in converting them irreligious.

Buddha was the first historical person, appraised by the west as the Light of Asia. The other Hindu Rishies and Maharshies are all mythological. We don’t find any historic evidence of their living. They might be fictitious characters of Purana Writers. Next to Buddha, we find such evidence in the lives of Jesus and Sankara. If teachings is done through fictitious characters people do not believe.

Buddha was a living personality like us. He gained historic importance. That is a different context. Buddha did experiments to find Truth. In the traditional Yoga Practices he was not successful. Rather he failed miserably. Finally he wanted to give up life. He drowned in a river. In an attempt to commit suicide, he realized his Self. He could see sparks of Truth. By that time he felt unconscious. An outcaste woman brought him onto the bank and served. Then with the awareness, he settled under a tree on the banks of Yamuna. Within days he realized Truth and became Buddha. Social justice, equality, fraternity and meditation in the self are the four principles of his Dharma.

By that time the Hindu religion was horribly polluted with Castism, Untouchability and Inequality. He brought into his fold men and women, irrespective of their birth and social status. He mercilessly put a stop to all religious rituals and God worships. He advocated not to believe in rebirth and their existence of Soul, heaven and hell. Every man should stand and work on three principles – namely Dharma, Intelligence (Buddhi) and Society. There should be no interference of Gods in man’s affairs. A man who lives righteously need not fear of Sin. If one takes control over the mind, he will attain Yoga Siddhi, perfection through Yoga. “OM! MANI PADME HAM” is the keynote to Buddhistic meditation. By that channel the Arhat can reach the Nirvana state – that is vacuum or nothingness. That in the later period became popular as “SUNYA” YOGA.

It was a misfortune that Buddhism could not survive in India for a long time. Hindu religious pandits contrived against Buddha and cut short his popularity. Then it voyaged to distant lands. The Vedic culture re-entered and dominated the popular belief. The Gods, mantras and tantras were forced on the public. Buddha did not said that death can be conquered.. He did not talk much about the Atma (soul). What he advocated was that the weakness of man could be conquered with Wisdom and Higher Intelligence. He practiced all that he taught to others. Mental rejuvenation is the key to success. One should learn truth by experience.

There are nearly 3500 rules to a Buddha Sravana. The Master gave importance to Upasana and Vipassana. One should look inside to elevate himself spirituality and arrive at mental perfection. That gives Wisdom. Concentration on heart centre creates Vacuum in the heart. Then the resonance of ‘Om Mani Padma Hum’ opens the doors of the Inner Heart. Then the Sravana starts experiencing. He should have wonderful faith in the Lord. There won’t be any difference between the physical world and Buddhic world.

Desires and expectations are the causes for man’s decline and suffering.
The unfulfilled desires become bonds.
If man becomes silent, Silence leads to Sunya, nothingness. Even the Soul in the Self is a big Sunya.
