"Desha" is a Sanskrit word that means a "space", "place" or "country". In other words its cultural significance lies in the fact that it is a geo-cultural unit with the emphasis on cultural practices of a people.
The ancient Vedic cultural practice of अन्नं बहू कुर्वीत (Annaṃ Bahū Kurvītaḥ), as a call to the people to "produce food in large quantities",once defined the concept of our "Bharat Desha".
The call was not just confined to producing food, but all goods and services, in large quantities, even while making it available to every member of society, as easily as it could be facilitated.
In ancient Vedic civilization, the concept of "Desha" was both the production and exchange of food, goods and services. There was no concept of a market economy to dictate the price of goods or put a value on knowledge. The concept of cultural divide was unknown.
And because Vedic civilization needed to make everything available to the whole community, the entire functioning of the society was based on "mass production"; not the mass production of factories of the Industrial Revolution, but the production of everything in large quantities by the "skill" of the people.
This need to mass produce, mandated the development of specialized skills at a faster pace, in the people of the Vedic civilization.
It was here that the ancient Rishis stepped in as masters of the science of "inserting the specific bio-memory of skills into specific DNA layers". In fact the concept of "Gotra" is actually a code for fashioning the special DNA content.
When a child is born in certain "Gotra", this skill-based knowledge is already in his DNA and is recognized by her/him with ease and without having to undergo specialized training. What is required for the manifestation of the skill is the provision of the right ambience to enable the child to unlock it. The child could pick up, excel, and update the profession of the father quickly and with ease.
In fact, the whole structure of this Bharat Desha, was beautifully divided into small economic units and connected socially as one “Desha.”
Ideologically centred and economically independent, the Desha constituted a powerful, beautiful, unimaginable and inimitable system in Vedic times. For example, the mantra chanted in Rameshwaram and the mantra chanted in Kedarnath is the same. The visualization held in Gangasagar and the visualization in Somanath temple is also the same.
Making these great Vedic concepts of “Desha” user friendly, in modern day languages and mapping it to the modern day civilization needs and requirements, has been the goal of Bhagwan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam.
“Desha” as an enlightened civilization, has too many great things to offer to the world, to humanity, and to the Universe. They include the very Science of Enlightenment, as well as great gifts in the field of health, wealth, mental health, food, yoga, art, music, dance, sex, principles of economy, social structure, judiciary, administrative structure and technologies like aviation.
With this knowledge becoming easily available, the goal of Swamiji to make enlightenment a lifestyle, not just an experience, is now a reality.
