I thoroughly enjoyed reading this article, it is enlightening. The author thoroughly explained the true core of this upnishad by detailing the last boon of Nachiketas. His third boon which is the real reason for this upnishad dealt with the comparison of the pleasant and the lasting goodness in the choices we make in life. The one who goes after the pleasures in life falls short compared the the one who chooses good to last for as long as possible. The good choice helps the individual as well as the society around him. This has been well presented here.

Western linguistic theories actually quite works on studying Malayo Polynesian language family. It has not been debunked yet and I'm already discover that Malay language share many similarites in term of vocalbulary and grammar with other relatives. There is no doubt that nearly half of Malay vocalbulary are borrowed from other language family but do all language around the world really descended from Sanskrit? That's would be a rhetorical questions that will brings up some fiery debate between ultranationalist and scholars.

We don't care what western cullender says.

Our Vedic Calender gives perfect information of Eclipse with perfect time and space plus its effects on living organisms. Vedic Calender also give perfect information about positions of stars and planets in space and their effects on human life. Remember Vedic Calendar give all these information without using Artificial Satellite.
So there is no way of cheating if everything happens in space as per dictation of Vedic Calendar.

It is very good article; it is right that their is no hindu religion; the true dharma is Adi sanatan dharma; which birthless and deathless; eternal; actually it is revealed by God of Gita; himself that how he established one adi sanatan deity religion ,where everyone includes five elements is completely pure. For this we need to know , Who am I ? What is my purpose of life? From Where I come? Who is my true Father? . When we know all these answers then we truly achieve which is written in this article. Actually we are Soul and came from soul world to play our part in this material world….when we first come at earth we are completely pure (Deity) and now we become completely impure due to five vices and its root cause is body consciousness.

GOOD NEWS is that our TRUE FATHER ; incorporeal God Shiva now showing us that we all are soul irrespective of any religion, how through Rajyoga we can become viceless and again become completely pure , we need to practice that we are soul and using this body as a instrument and absorb LOVE, PEACE, JOY, POWER, PURITY , KNOWLEDGE and BLISS which is original nature of SOUL.

Om Shanti

Perhaps the editor who made this article should have read the Badshahnama. It itself states that a new tomb was constructed in place of the old mansion and a temporary tomb. Here's the tract:

"On the 6th of Bahman (4 Rajab 1041/26 January 1632), the fruit of the tree of sovereignty and caliphate, the prince of lofty worth Sultan Shah Shuja' Bahadur returned to the royal camp from Akbarabad, along with the 'Umdat ul-Mulk Wazir Khan and the noble and chaste lady Sitti Khanan, who held the post of the deputy and chief Lady-in-Waiting of that one of praiseworthy habits, acquired the honors of accompanying the litter encompassed by unlimited pardon and forgiveness; and all along the way, they provided food and largesse to the poor.
After reaching Akbarabad, it was entrusted to earth in the heaven-like tract of land situated to the south side of the Abode of the Caliphate, overlooking the river Jumna, which had belonged to Raja Man Singh; and to acquire it, His Majesty, the Caliph-ranked, had given in exchange a mansion, loftier than the said mansion, to his grandson Raja Jai Singh. And on the top of the illumined grave, at first in haste, a small domed building was built, so that the eye of a non-confidante does not fall on the holy precincts of the grave of that veiled one of the curtains of chastity.

And plans were laid out for a magnificent building and a dome of lofty foundation , which for height will, until the Day of Resurrection, remain a memorial to the sky-high aspiration of His Majesty the Second Sahib Qiran and which for strength will display the firmness of the intentions of its builder. And the far-seeing engineers and art-creating architects. And the far-seeing engineers and art-creating architects estimated the cost of this building would be 40 lakhs of rupees.

Subsequently, in that heaven-like tract of land, the heavenly plinth was laid for a mausoleum of lofty foundation, which, in strength and loftiness and high dignity and magnificence of rank, is the honor of the terrestrial world, which is completely of white marble slabs, and which has arranged round it a pleasing garden having the marks of Paradise. On one side of it, a lofty mosque was built and on the other side, a replica thereof, a guest house of lofty expanse: and on its sides , there were constructed rooms and portals, and before its gates, several newly fashioned plazas and joy-increasing sarais, which have no like and equal on the surface of the earth in spaciousness of area and novelty of design. In the space of twenty years, that building, the foundation which is the eighth layer of the world and whose cap is the tenth roof of the sky, was completed at a cost of 50 lakhs of rupees; and through its extreme loftiness of dignity and rank and excellence of decoration and ornament, it has become the honor of the ancient roof of the azure sky."

The author should really read what it actually states. It clearly states that a temporary tomb was erected in its place but later another one was erected,

"On the 6th of Bahman (4 Rajab 1041/26 January 1632), the fruit of the tree of sovereignty and caliphate, the prince of lofty worth Sultan Shah Shuja' Bahadur returned to the royal camp from Akbarabad, along with the 'Umdat ul-Mulk Wazir Khan and the noble and chaste lady Sitti Khanan, who held the post of the deputy and chief Lady-in-Waiting of that one of praiseworthy habits, acquired the honors of accompanying the litter encompassed by unlimited pardon and forgiveness; and all along the way, they provided food and largesse to the poor.

Hello everyone,

I am new to this forum and new to Hinduism. I have been practicing Buddhism for the past 10+ years. For the past 6 months I have been on a new spiritual journey fueled by a yearning to connect with God leaving me wanting in non-theistic Buddhism. That led me to Sikhi which has then led me to Hinduism. I have sincere appreciation for the teachings of Buddhism and also of Guru Nanak, now having discovered Sanatana Dharma though I am left believing that Buddhism and Sikhi are part of it. I have been watching documentaries and lectures, as well as reading what I can online regarding Hinduism. A long time ago I read the Bhagavad Gita and a college friend of mine was Hindu, but I always felt overwhelmed when I tried to learn about this diverse way of life. Where should I go from here to learn more? I was thinking of starting with the Upanishads, unless there is someplace better to start. Thank you to anyone who takes the time to read and respond.

Gland to have found this site.

-I.

Big thank you!!!!
Hindus basically used to have a rule.. (I've read somewhere, tell me if wrong) That we shouldnt go further those seas and spread or convert others to the sanatan dharma. They were isolated within indian subcontinent. If they would have gone beyond those seas, this world would have gone many years further in development. Sorry for my english

1) The word is not 'obviously' Sanskrit. Just as the words 'wang' (money) or 'wangi' (fragrant) are not obviously from Sanskrit. There is no 'obvious' way of telling just from the way it sounds. One has to look for cognates.
2) Arabic has a few Sanskrit loanwords. Definitely not 'many'.
3) Sanskrit and Tamil are not the earliest languages in the world. They might the oldest extant languages, but not the earliest. Our ancient African ancestors did not speak Sanskrit or Tamil.

Regardless of how you believe the word 'waris' originated in Arabic, it was borrowed from Arabic into Malay, and along with it, the relevant religious contexts.

None of your statements make any sense…

There is no such thing as having 'more ancient DNA'. Africans do not have 'more ancient DNA' than anybody else on this planet. Neither do us Malays.

A whole ethnicity cannot have extra DNA. That will cause them to develop disabilities, mental syndromes, etc. Do you have those?

All Malays do not have 'a portion of of Middle Eastern DNA'. That is absurd.

As for your last statement: Are you saying that Rasulullah (S.A.W.) spoke Aramaic? 'Isa (A.S.) isn't an Arab, just so you know.

You are correct. This list is not 100% accurate. Malapetaka is the only Sanskrit word borrowed into Malay with that meaning. Bala was borrowed from Arabic.

"Nope only 5 words are of malay one of it is babi."

Obviously your teacher does not know the language.
It is illogical for a language to have only 5 native words.
Here are 7 Malay words not derived from other languages:

Emas, perak, gigi, gusi, busuk, wangi, seriau
