SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO LET THE HINDUS SAY IT; THEY SAY IT SO MUCH ...
Today's daily blog was shared with me by Mr. T.W., and sometimes, you just have to sit back, and let others say it, and say it without much additional commentary.
When you read this, think of Dummycrooks and Republithugs; think of the local edubbabler in your school, of the obnoxious driver blasting down the street in his restored and souped up Monte Carlo, with (c)rap music booming away on a subwoofer that rattles the windows a mile away, sharing his wretched taste in "art" and unrelenting iambic pentameter with all and sundry; think of the banksters in the LIBOR scandal or the mortgage frauds or the credit default swamps and derivatives, all plotting their next round of theft - they'll call it quantitative easing and haircuts and bailouts - at their Bilderberg meeting with their hired experts. Think of GMOs and the corporate and government corruption they have spawned, and that have spawned them. Think of the stolen natural seed banks, the endless panels of bought off "scientists" extolling the virtues of elite agendas. Think of the "scholars" and style manuals that never cite the page number, and clutter the text with parenthetical "references." Think of the American university: ideological reinforcement mills par excellence.
“It is the lowest instincts that spur the men of the Kali Yuga on. They prefer to choose false ideas. They do not hesitate to persecute sages. Desire torments them. Slovenliness, illness, hunger, and fear spread. There will be severe droughts. The different regions of countries will be in conflict with each other. The sacred books are no longer respected. Men will be without morals, irritable and sectarian. In the age of Kali false doctrines and misleading writings spread… Many will perish… Most of the new leaders are of working-class origin. They will hunt down the priests and upholders of knowledge. Fetuses will be killed in the stomachs of their mothers and heroes will be assassinated. The Shudra will claim to behave like Brahmans and the priests like laborers. Thieves will become kings, and kings will be the thieves. Women who have relationships with several men will be numerous…. The earth will produce plenty in some places and too little in others. Rulers will confiscate property and use it badly. They will cease to protect the people. Base men who have gained a certain amount of learning (without having the virtues necessary for its use) will be esteemed as sages. Men who do not possess the virtues of warriors will become kings. Scholars will be in the service of mediocre, conceited, and malevolent men. Priests will degrade themselves by selling the sacraments. There will be many displaced persons, wandering from one country to another… Predatory animals will be more violent….
“Young girls will do trade in their virginity. The god of the clouds will be inconsistent in the distribution of the rains. Shopkeepers will run dishonest businesses. They will be surrounded by pretentious, false philosophers. There will be many beggars and unemployed people. Everyone will use hard and vulgar language. No one will be able to trust anyone else. People will be envious… moralizing puritans characterize the period of the end of the Kali Yuga. … Wealth and harvests will decrease… Rapes will be frequent. Many people will be treacherous, lustful, base, and foolhardy… There will be many children born whose life expectancy is no more than sixteen years… Wheat supplies will be stolen. Thieves will steal from thieves. People will become inactive, lethargic, and purposeless. Illness, rats, and noxious substances will plague them… Unqualified people will pass as experts in matters of morals and religion. People will massacre women, children, cows, and one another.” (Daniélou, Alain; While the Gods Play: Shaiva Oracles and Predictions on the Cycles of History and the Destiny of Mankind. Inner Traditions / Bear & Co, Aug 1, 1987. p. 211f.)
They got it right.
There's nothing else to be said. They saw our age correctly and accurately. They have somehow looked at London and New York, have seen the banksters and oligarchs and all their vast corruption, peered into the megalomaniac messianic socialist mediocrities in Downing Street and the White House, in the Reichskanzlei and the Kremlin and the Forbidden City, and called it for what it is.
See you on the flip side.

This obsession with “’warriors’ virtues’” (ancient and modern marketing) and femme chastity (not a new form of gossip) is really tiresome.
This is just the republican party in the USA, these facts (sex and lying about war and the people who fight wars) are not something that didn’t exist in the ancient Hindoo world.
Why cite them today as if this text prophesizes things unknown 2000 or 10000 years ago?
Most “sacred books” were burnt hundreds of years ago.
Interesting to hear Dr Farrell quoting Danielou. My understanding is that Dr Farrell is a lifelong admirer of Bach (as am I, for that matter). But isn’t Bach criticized by Danielou for his “tempering” of Western tonality? Worlds within worlds. Any thoughts, Dr Farrell?
Thanks for sharing this Dr Farrell, what a great blog this is.
As you said, could not have been put better as to what is going on right now.
As we all should know is the age of the Pisces the symbol of Christianity also in the book of Daniel time of the feet of iron and clay. A time of rigidity and confusion look around us ignorance in all spheres reign. Let us hope many of us survive this closing age of darkness and emerge into the light.
“Count Iblis” is from 1978 version of Battlestar Galactica, who tried to mislead spacefaring humans who “may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians or the Toltecs or the Mayans”

Welcome to the neighborhood.

(Just adding a touch of “Orwellian” to the mix.)
Understanding the Yuga Cycle and the science of time is the key to understanding human evolution and devolution. There is no better source for information on this subject than that great living Rishi David Frawley who by the way is referenced in at least one Dr. Farrell’s books and several of Graham Hancock’s books for his work on ancient Vedic culture.
The good news is that the Kali Yuga is over and I believe we are seeing its final death pangs today. We are now solidly in the Dwapara Yuga and the forces of chaos, ugliness, and destruction now have the light of the Dwapara Yuga cast upon them. The ugly ones will find it much harder to impose their will on humanity and soon will have to scurry back under the rock from which they came until the Yuga cycle begins its descent once again and the Gods start to vanish and these Demons emerge once more from their lair.
And like the last Dwapara Yuga, a torch bearer emerges to uphold it, much like the despicable Lords of the Kali Yuga today who seek to perpetuate the dying influence of the Kali Yuga and their reign. Alexander the Great was our last champion of the Dwapara Yuga but could not stop the cycle of time and the inevitable grip of the Kali Yuga which brought us the ascendancy of Yahwehism, the dark ages, ritual murder, slavery on all corners of the globe, destitution for the mass of humanity, ignorance of the laws of the Universe, and perpetual war. We now we await our new Dwapara Yuga torchbearer. Could that torchbearer be Vladimir Putin?
And for those of you who have unexplained yearnings for the stars and believe it may be aliens beckoning you, guess again. It is the sum total of your being resonating with the energetic forces of the celestial spheres which determine who you are and what you will do in life. To understand this I would also suggest David Frawley’s Vedic astrology books. Vedic astrology being the real astrology based on the exact positions of the planets as opposed to the one for public consumption known as western astrology which was most likely engineered to discredit the science of astrology. Going through life without a basic knowledge of the celestial forces so deeply embedded into our DNA is truly going through life with blinders on. Knowing the astrological forces at work in one’s life is the most empowering thing one can do. If planets have the ability to determine the size of the blast of a hydrogen bomb, imagine what impact the position of the planets have on the individual?
The is a reason why astrology was the premiere science of the ancients and there is a reason why all the brilliant alchemists of medieval Europe were also students of astrology. Alchemy does not work without knowledge of the position of the planets. I would also suggest much or archaeology can not be fully understood without knowledge of astrology, nor much of anything for that matter including even the bible. Under the kali Yuga, true science gets replaced by “false doctrines and misleading writings.” Lack of knowledge of true astrology by the mass of the populous is a perfect example of the Kali Yuga at work.
If anyone does decide to read an astrology book like David Frawley’s “Astrology of the Seers” then I would suggest getting a copy of your Vedic astrological chart to have in your hand while studying the book. These can be generated for free on numerous websites such as this one:
Thanks Frankie Calcutta. I signed up for the I hope free chart. I am curious to what it may say. I also looked up this “Astrology of the Seers” which had raves but one reviewer said it was meant for someone with a 60 IQ. Not to be discouraged I read it’s mainly a book about Philosophical Astrology which I believe is what I am after. So thanks again for the tip. (if your in this web-room —Giza Death Star then your on to something and I will LISTEN?)
I know they’ll probably try and sell me some trinkets even though I don’t have any left for I used them to buy Manhattan!
Seriously, I had my chart done long ago from a deceased Psychologist Sponsor Friend of mine who use to go to Vedic Society Get-to-gethers in Boston during the late Fifties. He said, “It was a great cocktail hour for the bunch of us?”
The chart he made out said, “I was always to be an Initiate and never a fully fledged groupie.” Another reading I read elsewhere said, ‘I will always be standing at the Entrance of the Cave but couldn’t go no further!'” Not very promising.
I just happened to watch last night —Conan the Barbarian and James Earl Ray’s performance. If I was there I’d probably would end up giving him a kick in the pants or a poke with my bamboo stick rather than OFF WITH HIS HEAD! Wake him up like some like some Taoist-zen Master! (my friend was in one Zen Monestary and he said it was a place the Japanese send their wayward young sons.)
I imagine someplace like a catholic school in which I attended had some of the loosest girls around, ha, ha!
By the way, do you know how to get to the Temple of Doom! Maybe my ‘chart’ may say, “Your already there!” ( that’s likely…?)
don’t put too much stock in the astrogem astrological chart. A superficial reading. Not to knock astrological gems, as we all know: gems once made the world round. Atlantis. The cap stone of Giza. Imagine what they can do to your body on an energetic level? I’ve experienced this first hand. Yet, another important science confined to the dustbin thanks to the kali yuga. Rely on “Astrology of The Seers” to start to make your own determination of the planetary forces at work in your life. Then maybe find a reputable Vedic astrologer, if you want to learn more.
I consider this my one public service announcement to my friends here at Giza. I truly believe you are missing a big piece of the puzzle when you don’t have a basic grasp of astrology. And it certainly ties into much of Dr. Farrell’s work. The more you study astrology, the more astounding it becomes as you start to see it at work even in the minutia of your life and then in society as a whole.
I suppose the problem of other Ages would be the tyranny of astrology and the court star watchers. On a personal level, I would imagine astrology could trigger unhealthy compulsions. On the whole though, I believe are society could be much healthier and really flourish once again if astrological knowledge was common household knowledge. Treatment of disease would be much easier for certain.
regarding the 60 IQ, I would put David Frawley and his work on a stature with Dr. Farrell. Seers of the first order.
Now Paul, if you don’t mind, could you tell us all the riddle of steel?
made the world GO round
Thanks Frankie Calcutta for your advice and quick response.
I’m am glad you spoke of the ‘gem(s)’ as a past science. That is something of how I would take it. Yes, I would include and intend to do so —‘take astrology’ as a key element in understanding this mysterious paleo-ancient past if it can be understood at all? (of course ‘priests’ foul up the stew!)
What really rung my chimes was this partial sentence you wrote: “…CelestrIal Forces so deeply embedded in our DNA…! [[[[(that makes a world of sense to me but no-where can I comprehend it except to think DNA is a ‘designed technology” and the planets are it’s triggers?”) (all this talk about alcoholism, schizophrenia, etc having a genetic origin? It may well be in some people but like I mentioned it must be (risky word) “””triggered”””” by something or else it just lies dormant?)]]]]
I also like the words you used — ….minutia of your life… Isn’t that what Quantum Philosophy is all about —- the ‘below’ or MINUTIA?
No, we say so, because we want our MESSENGERS to look like Royal Appendages of our EGOS instead of the ‘sloppy, messy, dark creativity of the prima materia of mass confusion!
Yes, a holeoistic medicine is making strides using Astrology, I imagine, but too bad it all has an ‘admission price” in order for one to benefit from it. (read the free Health literature found next to newspaper stands! See, it doesn’t come CHEAP!!!!!)
I found church PLACEBOs to work sometimes but only to those who have faith. (not us skeptics that can doubt even doubt itself until some ‘girl’ or romeo (for others) comes around and talks of LOVE. Then we become FOOLS, HA, HA!
Until then I’m stuck with convention Rockefeller Medicine!
Now the RIDDLE OF STEEL— or don’t trust anything except STEEL! I like it that. It certainly is a way to survive the STREETS of San Francisco!!!
You ‘came back with that smart-alec comment! Wit is a good thing! You don’t have to be British to have it!
To take a wild guess and speak metaphorically — steel is hard and lasting versus substances that are phantasmogoric, hypagogic, temporal or transitory(like being a resident of the State of California?)
Of first course I first thought of diamonds but STEEL will do.
I don’t know the answer to that particular RIDDLE — but lets just say it’s the PERMANANCE in life the Buddhist so claim doesn’t EXIST! (we could be funny and say WE HAVE TO STEAL OUR WAY TO HEAVEN but I don’t like that association with horned creatures like was posted below in this article.)
Have a good day this day = TODAY!
Thanks for sharing. The physics of cosmic energy and DNA is beyond anything I can wrap my head around. But maybe the answer is hidden in the Bible? The dance of the seven veils (the seven cosmic rays) and the beheading of John the Baptist ( a symbolic reference to the mysterious and all powerful Lunar Nodes, the eighth and ninth planets of astrology which serve to disrupt the Kundalini energy by severing the head from the body)?
And the answer to the riddle of steel my friend can be found in Conan the Barbarian. Not to be confused with Conan’s quote borrowed from Genghis Kan: something about the life’s greatest joy is seeing the enemy vanquished at one’s feet and hearing the lamentations of their women.
“As above, so below”.
Santos Bonacci teaches the Holy Science, some of his videos can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtExkh6ZiNU
Thanks for the great link! Fascinating stuff. And I thought I was just pulling that bible and astrology stuff out of the top of my head or even my rectum.
A condensed summary of the Kali Period — could be? It certainly nails down many of the woes but I imagine he skipped a few but then who could be that pre-morbid and mention or add to them?
Did you read the customer reviews for the book “While the Gods Played?” Not very promising. Could very well be a campaign to besmirch the author. I seen it done before but the reviews aren’t very promising. (I don’t think I’d buy the book although if someone gave it to me I might read it.)
I’m so far into the beginning of all this stuff I will never be able to play catch up? It’s like Art — it’s good to start practicing it when a child so as to have fourty or fifty years of experience which ‘makes’ a difference rather than go around guessing like I do most of the time. Some times we’re lucky as the Chinese believe? I have ‘hunches which is probably what research is all about when done with the ‘painstaking fourty years part?”)
I got a kick out of the last reviewers comment while reading the above book ‘feel right at home in Wagnerian Rally.” I imagine that would be right up your Alley.
Sometimes this ‘stuff like this’ could be ‘just make-believe’ but if the ‘Somebodies of the World fall for it — They in turn kinda make it OR turn it into REALITY?)
I am going to take a chance and buy the book about Yugas by a Joseph Selbrie. (they took a long time in finally publishing it which delayed me from buying it when it first came out so I never did.) Now I have second thoughts but I’ll probably get back to it at a later date.)
I think Yugas give a clue to this ‘paleo-historical period’ I am now reading about in your “Giza Death Star Destroyed.
I don’t know for I never found a Myth to Live by — except the one of the Wandering Jew or should I say the NOMAD but those days are long gone for me. Now I travel just in my dreams and in books such as yours.
So much for readers’ comment — it takes all kinds?
I should have added a more up-to-day description of this ‘Nomad Myth.’ Let’s just say, a — HOBO IN BOZO’S PARADISE ha, ha!
Paul, if you’re interested, Alain Danielou is one of the best western scholars of the earliest Pre-Hindu, Dravidian cultures and religions in the Indian sub-continent. He actually went to India, learned the languages, the music, etc, and PRACTICED the various yogic teachings. In other words, he writes from more than just “book learnin.'”
I read the reviews on amazon (not the best place for scholarly, critical reviews btw) and most were favorable. The review by An Mhuruch is very critical and a bit unfavorable, but fair. You have to read Danielou with a critical eye (some of his political views can be interpreted as elitist as An Mhuruch points out).
The other thing about him that many readers may find hard to take is that he was gay, and OUT about it, since his youth. When ever a reviewer complains about “an agenda” as the other unfavorable reviewer, tepi “tepi” did, I suspect that the explicit sexuality describe in the book can disturb some readers.
Danielou’s book is certainly worth the $12.95 fir the Kindle Edition. But never think that he could be the last word on early Indian religion. He wrote about it because he loved it and tried to live it, and this come through in his writing.
Thanks for your remarks Thomas.
This is one of the main reasons I like this web-site. I pay close attention to it. The LOWDOWN I get from Farrell and you friends and members — Saves me much footwork and time.
Instead of reading ten books to get to the one now I just read the one ( sometimes I have to read a few but then I feel the satisfaction of learning. Then again I get discouraged for without the belief in reincarnation or metapyschosis it all seems so useless! Such incredible time-spans!)
Picking books is like picking bones. The marrow is delicious! ( yes, Hemmingwas was right but knocked himself off because he couldn’t see it. Experience along with knowledge is truly TACIT UNDERSTANDING like the Linguists would put it.)
