INDIAN NATIONAL SONG 'VANDE MAATRAM' - A TOTALLLY SECULAR YOGIC CONCEPT?

The 'MAARKNDAEYA PURAANNA' has a chapter where in the 'VARSHHA' [country] called 'BHAARATA' is stated to be located on one of the four petals and indeed itself being one of the four petals in the 'FOUR-PETAL LOTUS' [Page 137, Sankshepta Maarkndaeyapuraanna, Gita Press, Gorakhpur, Book Code Number 539, ISBN -81-293-0153-9, 11th Hindi language Edition, Vekrama Samwanta 2065]. Further, the same spiritual text says that even the Gods-Goddesses yearn to get born in ‘BHAARATAVARSHHA’ after getting displaced from the Heaven [Page number 141, ibid].

You find, on a close scrutiny of the pages numbers 136 to 145 of the same text, that the word ‘BHAARATAVARSHHA’ is actually a symbolic word or the METAPHOR for the ‘HUMAN BODY’. It is claimed in the Indian spiritual tradition that a soul can get spiritual salvation only after getting born in a human body to get which even Gods-Goddesses try their level best!


To be honest, you may not be able to understand the above explained concept if you stick to the literal interpretation! For example, you may very well say - Well, BHAARATA is only one of the four petals in the four-petal Lotus and this Lotus in turn is located in the MUULAADHAARA CHAKRA in a human body. If BHAARATA were taken to be a human body, it would mean existence of a human body inside a human body and thus your explanation is illogical!


Yes, your argument is correct literally. But, let us understand the basic fact that these spiritual texts have sometimes been written in such a tricky way that an ordinary reader would be unable to find the spiritual truth with the help of the ordinary logic. But, with a little bit of wise application of one’s mind, one can easily infer the correct meaning hidden in this maze of seemingly confusing and often contradicting logic!


Now, as we all know, the aforesaid word 'BHAARATA' referred to the Indian Subcontinent in olden days and today it refers only to the modern nation-State called INDIA or BHAARATA................................!


FOUR-PETALS EXIST IN THE MUULAADHAARA CHAKRA............................................THIS IS THE FIRST OR THE BASIC CHAKRA, THE SEAT OF THE KUNDALENEE SHAKTE.......................................!


WHEN WE ARE SINGING VANDE MATRAM THEN WE ACTUALLY ARE SPIRITUALLY SINGING PRAISE ABOUT THIS MAA BHAARATEE/DURGAA [KUNDALENEE SHAKTE] who is residing inside this four-petal lotus, although Bankimchandra Chattopadhyay had included the song titled ‘Vande Matram’ in his novel 'Aanandamatha'..................SO, MUSLIMS NEED NOT HAVE ANY OPPOSTION TO SINGING THE VANDE MATRAM....................................!

To quote Wikepedia, "Vande Mataram (Bengali script: বন্দে মাতরম্; Devanagari: वन्दे मातरम्; Vande Mātaram "I do pay homage to the mother";) is a poem in the 1882 novel Anandamatha by Bankimchandra Chattopadhyay. It is written in a mixture of Bengali and Sanskrit.It is a hymn to the goddess Durga, identified as the national personification of India. It came to be considered the "National Anthem of Bengal",[and it played a part in the Indian independence movement, first sung in a political context by Rabindranath Tagore at the 1896 session of the Indian National Congress. In 1950, its first two verses were given the official status of "national song" of the Republic of India, distinct from the national anthem of India Jana Gana Mana. Many Muslim organizations in India have declared fatwas against singing Vande Mataram, due to the song giving a notion of worshipping Mother India, which they consider to be shirk (idolatry)."

SO, YOU HAVE FOUND THE ABOVE OBSERVATION INTERESTING AND UNHEARD OF BEFORE, HAVEN'T YOU?


............................IF THE HINDU LEADERS/ORGANIZATIONS SHOW TO MUSLIM ULEMAS/FELLOW CITIZENS THIS ABOVE SPIRITUAL REALITY POINTED OUT BY ME, I AM SURE OF MUSLIMS UNDERSTANDING THE TRUE SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE VANDE MATRAM AND THEN THEY MAY HAVE NO OBJECTION TO SINGING THIS VANDE MATRAM.


AFTER ALL WHO AND FOR THAT MATTER WHICH DEVOUT PIOUS MUSLIM CAN HAVE ANY OBJECTION TO SINGING PRAISES ABOUT THE POWER RESIDING INSIDE THE BEING OF THE SUPREME CONSCIOUSNESS - BY WHATEVER NAME WE MAY LIKE TO CALL THIS SUPREME BEING - GOD, GODDESS, DIVINE MOTHER, PUURANNA BRHMA, ALMIGHTY OR ALLAH?
