It is the most complex question of all! The question that has been lingering from the very moment of creation. How did this Creation come to be? How was the Universe created? While modern research is still grappling with what happened soon after Big Bang, the starting point for Creation, we find the ancient Indian texts describing stages BEFORE Creation, which lead to ancient Indian texts called “BrahmandaVisfotak”. In this work, we journey to the very depths of the knowledge of Creation from our ancients, to see how Creation comes to be.
Krishna is a paradox. While events connected with Krishna find a place in Geography, Krishna does not find a place in History. Historicity today demands evidence from archaeology and geography. If Krishna is historical, then He must have walked this earth. Where did He live? What did He leave behind? Seas and deserts are good preservers of ruins.
Ayodhya is the city founded by the Suryavamsa, solar dynasty kings. Rama was born and ruled from there 7100 years ago. The lineage of the solar dynasty spread not only to different parts of India but also to different parts of the world.This work traces the history of Ayodhya and this lineage through the lands, through the times. Ayodhya and the values that Rama stood for, have been an inspiration to peoples through the times. In the last 500 years, Ayodhya has been at the crossroads of history.
This book offers a solution not just to disentangle ourselves from the present imbroglio alone but more importantly to rejuvenate Ayodhya once again as an inspirational city with values to live by, in times to come.
