Malaysiakini an expression of faith, all about moving mountains

COMMENT / Cardinal Fernandez will long be remembered for subtle defiance.

The Church has harboured activists worldwide since its new take on Latin America, South Korea, Borneo and India.

In India, the Church has faced relentless attacks from Hindu fundamentalists for its stand on the evil caste system which virtually promotes inbreeding under warped notions of karma.

The Indian Constitution has outlawed the evil caste system.

India can only demolish the thousands of years old evil caste system by expelling all Brahmin (priest caste).

The rule of law, the basis of the Constitution, is upheld by the supreme court, and the Church, but probably not by many Hindu who still swear by the evil caste system and rail against secularism under BJP rule.

The Hindu want Hindu Rashtra or Hindutva (Hindu nation), a form of rightwing extremism in the Nazi mould which called for Aryan supremacy or NO to Christianity and other foreign religions. They are comfortable with Trump although there’s no basis for comparison. Trump is not an evil casteist although he avoids criticising white supremacists, a subculture. In India, Hindu Rashtra is no longer a subculture.

Fortunately, Christianity came to pagan and animist Kerala in southwest India 2K years ago, long before Brahma worship Vishnu worship or old Hinduism in north India merged with sivalingga worship in south India to form new Hinduism.

The Brahmin (priest caste) from north India declared the old priestly class of sivalingga worshippers in south India as casteless/outcaste (Pariah/Dalit/Harijan).

The Brahmin claim to be Aryan (new Caucasians). Aryan are in fact descended from albino Dravidian (archaic Caucasoid) in north India.

There are no pure Aryan or pure Dravidian in India. Even the white skinned, blonde haired, blue eyed people in certain mountain valleys in north India — Kulu, Manali, Hunza, Gilgit — are not pure Aryan. There’s some Dravidian in them.

The people in Ladakh, Sikkim and another seven Christian states in northeast India are from various Mongoloid tribes.

Some people in the mountains in Kerala are Negrito, the first people in India and Malaya. The Negrito came to Malaya from Kerala 40K years ago. The Negrito came to Kerala from east Africa 70K years ago.

Other people started coming to India as recently as 8K years ago, perhaps from 15K years ago.

Under the evil caste system, Brahmin (priest caste) become casteless/outcaste (Pariah/Dalit/Harijan) if they cross the waters.

Caste Hindu, including Brahmin, become casteless/outcaste (Pariah/Dalit/Harijan) if they marry outside the caste.

The Brahmin (priest caste) have tried to turn the casteless/outcaste (Pariah/Dalit/Harijan), if still Hindu, into another caste.

So, many “left” Hinduism to become Buddhist, Sikh, Muslim and Christian.

Karmic forces exhaust themselves sooner or later. So, there’s no need for the evil caste system to place an artificial prohibition on upward social mobility.

Brahmin make up 1 per cent of India’s 1.2b people. Yet, they make up 100 per cent of Hindu priests, 91 per cent of the people in national media, 70 per cent of Indian MPs and dominate the police force, among others.

The police routinely beat the sxit out of the low caste people and the casteless/outcaste and look the other way when the rapist is high caste.

British colonialism in India would not have been possible if the Brahmin, other high caste, and remnants of the Mughal Empire had not been in cahoots with them.

Karma is neutral.

It’s human perceptions that see karma as good, bad, evil, ugly, beautiful, positive, negative, optimistic, and pessimistic.

Christianity believes that everything that happens is a blessing in disguise. Count your blessings and be thankful and grateful so that you will have even more reasons to be thankful and grateful tomorrow.

Look for the silver lining in the clouds.

The good comes from the bad. Without the bad, there can be no good. Success comes from failure. Intelligence is the ability to learn from mistakes.

Hindu feel that Hinduism, a collection of local practices which vary from place to place, is in danger from Christianity ever since they did an about turn and started claiming that Hinduism is also religion and has God.

There’s no God the Creator in Hinduism.

Hindu are not believers but seekers with or without the help of Knowers (Guru).

India, according to the mystic and yogi SadhGuru, has been “the most godless nation on Earth throughout history”.

Mysticism is about exploration, for no rhyme or reason.

Still, Hindu feel that there’s a great spirit — paramatma — which permeates everything.

The Holy Bible, the Word of God, mentions the Holy Spirit.

Word of God refers to eternal laws based on eternal truths. These have a spiritual (emanicipation) nature.

Jesus said that “you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free”.

“The truth, once it emerges, cannot be hidden.”

“It will be shouted from the rooftops.”

It means that eternal truths have a life of their own and comes into being, fruition.

Considers the laws on gravity, aerodynamics and energy, among others.

There are also eternal laws on the nature of faith, for example.

Jesus said, “if you have faith, even though it be as tiny as a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘uproot thyself and plant thyself in the sea’ and it will obey you”.

Faith can move mountains.

Malaysiakini for example, an expression of faith, may be all about moving mountains and thereby helping to make a difference, hopefully for the better.

Sanatana (science) dharma (duties), not synonymous with Hinduism, also claim to be about eternal laws based on eternal truths.

These are solely based on civics and moral values of a civilisation.

In Genesis, the 1st Book in the Holy Bible, the Word of God, it’s stated that “if anything has a beginning, it will have an end”.

The novel Corona virus, for example, had a beginning. It will have an end when the people make sure it has no place to go. It will die out.

Only God has no beginning, no end. God always was and always will be.

If you feel God does not exist, although God exists, God does not exist.

If you feel God exists, although God may not exist, God exists.

It’s unscientific to say God exists, just as it’s unscientific to say God does not exist.

God does not interfere in human lives, the collective.

God is a personal experience.

God helps those who help themselves, whether they feel God exists or otherwise.

It’s said that God is energy, a form of intelligence and luck.

The laws of energy state that energy cannot be created, nor destroyed, but can only be transferred and transformed.

It’s evident from the laws of gravity that energy does not appear to “exist”, there’s no need for energy per se. Matter attracts matter, like poles repel, unlike poles attract.

In the sun, compressing all the time as matter attracts matter, two hydrogen atoms fuse into one helium atom, and the friction releases great light and great heat.

So, God can only be consciousness — focus, concentration, self-awareness, self-consciousness — in the great nothingness which permeates everything.

Even the atom is 99.99 per cent “empty”.
