Indian archaeologists excavating in 2001 in Gujarat, found two submerged cities said to be Krishna’s Dwarka. Many Indians are questioning why the excavation project was suddenly stopped by the Government. Some believe it was effort to cover up the Vimana space crafts that Krishna was believed to have in use – or part of common global cover up of unknown human history – but more likely the halt was simply caused by conflicting religious beliefs and political issues.
The National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT) findings seem to be remarkable piece of proof, that Krishna and Mahabharata war were based on reality. Some of the found structures are from Krishna’s time about 1600 – 1400 BC, but much more older are also found. The NIOT team concluded that Dwarka was a port city with jetty area for boats.

Astronomical Evidence - In the Mahabharata there are references to sequential solar and lunar eclipses. Dr. R.N.Iyengar, at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore searched for the compatible dates by planetarium software (PVIS and EZC). He concluded that most of the eclipses and celestial observations related to Mahabharata references, belong to the period 1493 BC – 1443 BC. (Indian Journal of History of Science/38.2/2003/77-115).

Cover up of Dwarka, with vimanas and everything: Excavation of Dwarka was abruptly stopped. Amish Shah from USA traveled to India to investigate why. Most of his efforts to approach the officials were refused. Eventually KC Norial, director of Archeological survey of India, explained just natural reasons for sudden halt on the research – while researcher K Christa convinced him to bring the matter into daylight, so that the excavation would be pressurized to continue. Amish asks; ‘Did Dwarka possess futuristic flying machines?’ Shortly, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pquok7SdrKU.
What comes to this video, according Indian researcher and intuitional scientist P R Sarkar, there was no vimanas used during Mahabharata war. Oral Ramayana stories added to Mahabharata were partly fictional. Another common claim that Krishna stole butter, is also not true, according Sarkar.
Here is shortly his explanation of Krishna’s “butter stealing”; Lord Krishna will certainly do what is needed for devotee's spiritual progress. Therefore, He will steal their sins, then He is called a thief, Hari. What happens to the devotees after their sins are stolen? Their minds move upwards – the crude portion of the mind becoming increasingly subtle. Take the case of cream: when churned, its essence (butter) is separated from the non-essential whey. Similarly, once the sins are stolen the real essence of the mind, atman, is separated from the mind. That is why Hari is nicknamed the “butter thief”. Take it for granted that Krishna never stole butter from the milkmaids’ houses. – Sarkar, Kalikata 1979.
Beautiful devotional song about Krishna, Tum Ho Mere Krishna
Sarkar about Mahabharata which means “Great India”. The Mahagharata name is used for a war campaign guided by Lord Krishna around 1500 bc to unify India. India at that time was fragmented into a large number of small fighting kingdoms due to personal greed and the imperialistic aggression of the rulers. India was a vast stretch of land from China and Siberia on the north, to the Indian ocean on the south; and from the Mediterranean Sea on the west, to Japan on the east.
Sarkar about Krishna
Krishna was born in Kansa’s prison in Mathura on a night shaken with fearsome thunderclaps, when the historic exchange of children took place. One of Kansa’s intelligence agents opened the jail gates. The people of Gokula were all mysteriously asleep, thus facilitating the safe escape of the baby Krishna. – Sarkar 1981, Calcutta.
Mother tongue of Krishna was Shaorasenii Prakrta, but he spoke also sanskrit. His father, Vasudeva was a superintendent of jails in Mathura. Uncle, Maharshi Garga, noticed Krishna’s extraordinary qualities, and named him “Krishna”. In some portions of India there was patrilinear order, while matrilinear order was in other portions.
Krishna was Taraka Brahma (the liberator), and Mahakaola. The kaola raises his own kulakunndalinii, through his or her sadhana, but the Mahakaola has the power to raise the kulakundalinii of others also, if He so desires. In order to be an ideal guru in the spiritual sphere, one must be thoroughly conversant with every aspect of sadhana and also possess the capacity to teach those practices to others. The Mahakaola alone has this capacity, no one else.
Sarkar about Khrishna’s mission
According to natural law, the movement of the world from crude to subtle is accompanied by clash between good and evil. During this period, good people sometimes get exhausted by the dominance of the dishonest. A special force from Parama Purusa becomes a necessity, as human beings do not have the power to deal it. Thus Shiva came 7000 years ago, similarly 3500 years ago Lord Krishna came as Taraka Brahma to liberate.
According Giita Shrii Krishna says: ‘I incarnate Myself in this world from age to age for the protection of the virtuous, the destruction of the wicked, and the restoration of dharma.’ Lord Shiva, the original provider of Tantra, devoted much of His time to building a strong foundation for spirituality, while Lord Krishna was the first to attempt to build a strong society. Today, the combined power of both will help in building a healthy human society. – Sarkar 1960.
Krishna thought; ‘coordinated cooperation among the kingdoms, would bring stability to socio-economic life and improvement in the moral standard, enabling people to progress spiritually’. Shrii Krishna would unify India, so that this united, righteous and strong India, might act as the model guiding light for humanity as a whole.
But whenever a novel ideology catches the imagination of people, the society gets polarized. This was exactly what happened when Krishna appeared on the scene, but eventually he was successful in creating a great unified India.
Krishna never preached the message of renunciation. His life was the antithesis of this escapist philosophy. He advised the people: You should solve all your mundane problems collectively while directing your minds towards subtler spheres. You are to look to the welfare of all. You should develop yourselves in the physical, psychic and spiritual planes while maintaining proper adjustment among those.
Arjuna and the Pandavas were Krishnas devotees, and Kansa, Putana Raksasi, Bakasur, Duryodhana, Aghasur and the Kaoravas were His formidable foes. On the one side those who were ever ready to lay down their lives for His mission and ideology, and on the other side those so hostile that they could not even tolerate His existence. ………………………
It is not possible to judge Krishna’s fight against evil forces from the perspective of the present age. The life of Lord Krishna justifies His practical approaches. I shall put forth a few out of many examples.
Jarasandha would attack the Shurasena’s capital Mathura. Krishna shifted His capital from Mathura to Dwaraka. Dwaraka was across the desert of Rajasthan and the jungles of Madhya Pradesh. The enemy soldiers were not able to cross the desert or jungle or fight there. Hence, Jarasandha stopped attacking.
Another example of Lord Krishna’s practical approach; the Aryans of that time in the Delhi area were called Jatrii Ksatriya. The other group of people Abhiira Ksatriya usually fought against the Jat people. Both were good people, but because of some misunderstanding, they were fighting. Krishna thought, if He united these two, it would be more easy for Him to bring about Great India. He got His elder sister, Subhadra, Abhiira Ksatriya, to marry Arjuna, Jatrii Ksatriya. This He did with a view to make the Jatrii Ksatriyas and the Abhiira Ksatriyas stop fighting.
Let’s take one more instance. Krishna asked Yudhisthira on the battlefield to say, “Ashvatthama has been killed.” So it was uttered very loudly, and enemy Dronacarya heard it, became senseless (due to believing he lost his brother Ashvatthama, but the one killed was just elephant)….and Dronacarya was killed. You may take it to be something against morality, but you know that if the soldiers of two countries fight, the civilian population will also be killed. Here, the greater cause in this case was to save the common people. Krishna never went against the main principles of morality.
Gandhari was an Afghan lady from Kandahara. Afghanistan was then within India. Before marriage, when Gandhari learned that her would-be husband was blind, she covered her eyes with a cloth. “If my husband is unable to see the world, then why should I?” What a tremendous moral force she had!
Mahabharata war turned Kuruksetra into a burial ground. Due to moral and righteous reasons Pandavas had to kill Gandhari’s sons, the Kaoravas. All wept profusely. Krishna said to Gandhari, ‘The war was inevitable for the preservation of righteousness and the destruction of sin.’ To this Gandhari said, ‘Krishna, you are Taraka Brahma. If you had wanted, you would have changed their minds without a fight.’
Krishna said; ‘It is true that Parama Purusa could do everything without creating this world. But the drama of the Kuruksetra war was to teach the common people that ultimately dharma always triumphs over adharma [injustice]. Hence, the battle of Kuruksetra had to be conceived and dramatized. You, being an intelligent lady, certainly understand this.’ – Sarkar 1967.
Medical science at Mahabharata time
There was ayurveda, vaedyaka shástra, mesmerism and surgery. Homeopathy, “samah samam shamayati”, was invented by Lord Krishna. For instance, when the Kaoravas poisoned Bhiima, the experts gave him the same poison in elementary form by injections and he recovered. Jarasandha, Krśńa’s cousin, was thought to be dying after birth. There was a very famous lady doctor known as Jara. She stitched the child in a proper surgical operation and saved him. A lady doctor, Kárkatii Rákśasii was very famous for her mesmeric treatment.
Once Lord Krśńa fell seriously ill. Eminent allopathic and homoeopathic doctors attempted to cure him, but they were unsuccessful. When everything had failed, Krśńa explained, ‘There’s only one remedy. If you bring dust particles from my devotees’ feet I shall be cured.’ Narada was given the duty to travel across the Earth in search for feet dust donor, but nobody wanted to give dust from their feet to Krishna. Only the devotees of Vrindavana were happy to give dust from their feet, which cured Lord Krishna.
Krishna’s practical approach to His own death and his purpose of life
After the immoral Yadavas had finally been destroyed, now old Lord Krishna sat quietly under a tree in Prabhasa Tiirtha. He was sitting in lalita mudra on a stone under a tree, and the lower portion of His feet was reddish. A hunter, Jara, saw something reddish under the tree and took it to be a bird. He shot a poisonous arrow that struck Lord Krishna’s feet. He came in search of his prey and found Lord Krishna instead, whose body started to get bluish because of the poison. The hunter confessed his serious mistake.
Lord Krishna consoled him and said, ‘Had I been you, I might have committed the same mistake. You have not committed this mistake intentionally. You should not be punished either legally or morally. I forgive you.’ Saying this, Lord Krishna left His body. – Sarkar 1967, Ranchi
Krishna left us but He is still dearly loved and will continue to be loved by oppressed, suffering and struggling men and women. The sound of Krishna’s flute has been resonating throughout eternity. One who contemplates on Krishna can immediately hear this sound. – Sarkar 1980, Calcutta.
Some teachings related to Krishna
Lord Krishna has two aspects, the Parthasarathi Krishna is the lord of karma yoga, engaged in the battle against injustice. He wants to take all with Him, no one is insignificant, no one is negligible.
The Vraja Krishna is the devotional, liberating and witnessing aspect of Parama Purusa. He exist to take care of those who had no one of their own; ‘Well, you want to advance. That’s all right, but others must come with you’. The devotional sentiment is the highest and most valuable treasure of humanity. This element of devotion must be preserved most carefully from the onslaughts of materialism.
The word krishna means one who attracts all. For the first time in human history we find Parama Purusa in attractive form, even today Krisna’s flute attracts the devotees. The force of His intense love draws everyone towards Himself. If someone says, ‘No, I won’t go’, that will not do. When attracted self-consciousness merges into Parama Purusa, questions come to an end.
Krishna’s devotees were moving towards oneness with Him, feeling; “You are my everything”. While moving towards any object, it creates particular colour in mind. Today, people’s minds are coloured by the thought of paper currency. While thinking of Krishna, Radha’s entire mind became transformed into Krishna. (Lord Krishna never said that women have no right to attain salvation). Thus Krishna awakened the devotion and spiritual ardour, and as an adult king, the role of Krishna looking upon a chariot played a very significant role in physical fight, in spiritual fight, in all-round fight.
Suppose the enemy attacks and you begin squatting in groups. This sort of approach will not do at all. Go and fight and say to yourselves “Victory to the Lord” – this alone is the practical approach. (Mahadma Gandhi obviously didn’t follow it. DA) ……..
Still, Sarkar has confirmed that fortress Purana Quila in Delhi is from Krishna’s time. According Wikipedia; excavations carried out by Archeologists from ASI at Purana Quila in 1969-1973 unearthed painted grey ware dating 1500 BC. The site was thought to be Indraprastha, the legendary capital of the Pandavas. Until 1913, a village called Indrapat also existed within the fort walls. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purana_Qila.
Sarkar’s Discourses on the Mahabharata was published in 1969 and in 1981 http://anandamargabooks.com/portfolio/namami-krsnasundaram/
