Vasant Panchami

I am Saraswati Ma, goddess of all the inner qualities, arts, sciences, education and music. I am about the heart, the mind, your intuition and the inner woman within all my devotees. I am not a fashion model or a beauty queen. I do not wear a flashy sarie. My colors are white and gold. I am the one who you tap into when you are creating a great work of art or creating a better world. On Vasant Panchami I first appeared. I am the one who gave Krishna his great, enchanting flute.

One of my favorite topics is Hindu Archaeology. In the beginning humans discovered the Goddess in the archaeological record first. The Mother came first for when you are born you see your mother first before anyone else. This is why they worshiped Her first for everyone came out of their mother first into the world.

The two oldest musical instruments were the flute and the drum. The drum could communicate between many villages at one time in a crisis. It has its own amplification system. It does not need anything more. The healers, shamans, medicine men and medicine women used the drum first. Chanting of mantras came later. The flute has the greatest healing effect. Why do you think Krishna chose the flute? The reason because it was so soothing, healing and enchanting to hear.

A great archaeological find happened in 1921 with the excavation of Mooanjodaro by Sir John Marshall, Ernest H. MacKay and Madho Sarup Vats on the left bank of the Sindu Nadi (Indus River). Great ruins of a great city which rivaled many cities of the world at the time was explored. It had a drainage system, sewers, public baths, swimming pools and private wells. It was a very high culture because the people knew math, writing, weights and measures, owned fabulous jewelry, toys and art. It was called the Indus-Saraswati Civilization. It was a trading center and was very opulent in wealth and the creative arts.

The vimana was an aerial aircraft mentioned in the Ramayan which was used in warfare. There is an ancient text called the Vamanika Prakarna which explained the aeronautics of these craft. In 1875 another text was discovered in a temple in India called the Vymanika-Shaastra written by Marharishi Bhardwaj which described these ancient craft in detail and how to maintain them. This manual shows that it existed because you would not develop a manual for something which did not exist. Leonardo Da Vinci, the great European genius, even created a notebook describing a flying machine he wanted to build, so the Wright Brothers only re-invented the airplane.

In the Ramayan we know of the Ram Setu Bridge between India and Sri Lanka. In 2000 the floating stones were photographed by NASA scientists. Many have tried to explain these stones, but no scientist has adequately described them. They are not made of coral but look like any normal, large black stone. They are not pumice stones which are light weight stones. Hanuman, the monkeys and Sri Ram built a bridge made of these types of stones in the Ramayan.

Finally in 1983 a fantastic under sea city was found near modern day Dwarka. Temples were found besides figures of Vishnu which were carbon dated to 1500 B.C.E. The city was fortified as mentioned in the Mahabarata. A seal was found with an image of a bull, goat and unicorn which goes back to the 16th century B.C.E., India. A mudra seal was developed by Krishna as a security measure. All who entered the city had to show the mudra seal. This discovery shows that these kinds of seals existed even before Krishna entered the Earth plane. Some say it's not Krishna's city. Some believe that it is. It is part of the archaeological record and a great treasure for India and the world. Commercial interests have tried to build on this site and the Ram site, but the people have stood up in defense of these two great sacred sites. We must save these sites for our children and humanity. Mother Sarswati is very pleased to see that justice prevailed.

      Thanks for reading. This is based upon a katha I did at Shri Gaayatri Mandir which I will be doing a second time later in the year during yagna season, so we have a large audience.
