BookRev-19Four Religious Communities of India:Hindu, Sikh, Khalsa and Nirmallae Sant -4. Finally, in order to appreciate the functions of the second SIKH and the third KHALSA communities of religion it is essential to know some basic Hindu mythology and the prophets that appeared in the different past Ages. This need was also felt by Royal King GOBIND SINGH JI in that He sent forth some of His Khalsas to Banares (Jerusalem of India) to study the Hindu mythology, the shadow to the Royal Kingdom of God and the learned Khalsas were called NIRMALLAE (Pure) SANTS (Saints) or the Apostles.
The concepts of BRAHMA, the Creator demiurge god, VISHNU, the Preserver demiurge god and SHIV, the Destroyer demiurge god are the fundamental basis of Hindu mythology. Thus, the demiurge god BRAHMA, KHUDA or Yahweh created the Nature including the mankind and the demiurge god VISHNU preserves the mankind through teaching the peaceful and righteous ways of living together in harmony with Nature whilst the demiurge god SHIV destroys those who go against the righteous teachings of VISHNU.
Further, the four Ages outline the eras of dominant religious qualities. Thus, in SATT YUG or the Golden Age most of the people were shameful, truthful, contented and merciful and the people being full-fledged religious, they were called the VASS DEV (good angelic people). Also, they did not stand in the need of a prophet as they lacked no religious quality. In the Bible this era was called Adam and Eve living in the company of God (ALLAH). Degeneration of the religious qualities especially "mercy" led people into the TRETA YUG or the Silver Age and, therefore, the people of this Age occasionally aired out their cruelty over their own women folk. Cutting the nose of Saroop Nakha, the sister of King Ravan of Lanka, by Lachhman, the younger brother of Prophet Ram Chander Ji was a typical example of cruelty that led Pandit Ravan to avenge it by abducting Sita, the wife of Shri Ram Chanderji under the tit-for-tat principle of LOK LAJJ (shame of the people). The dominant KHATRI people of the TRETA YUG were "men of letters" and, therefore, they would observe the religious rites and perform the various rituals very carefullyo the last minute details. But in order to remind the people of the chief quality of God "mercy", Prophet Ram Chander Ji appeared among the most arrogant people of the Khatri tribe, who were well versed in the "letters" of the VEDAS so that they could temper their deeds with "mercy" for the sake of preserving humanity. "Letter killeth and spirit giveth life" is a well-known proverb of the Bible. In short, Prophet Ram Chander Ji played the part of demiurge god VISHNU and, therefore, He was well-known as the "MURYADA PARSHOTAM AVTAAR" or the Great man who set the moral laws on a sound basis almost on the same principles as Moses did for the Jews. Also, the name "Ram Chander" represented the fact that He was the "moon" (CHAND) of RAM (God or Sun, the Primary source of Light) i.e. He reflected "His Word" in setting out the moral laws. Of Moses it was said that He himself saw the Face of God but only showed the back of God, the reflections and not the real self of God, to the people i.e. the moral laws are the reflections of "His Word" or NAAM (VAEDON MAE NAAM UTTAM.....i.e. the VEDAS contain "His Word" implicitly and not explicitly as in the AD-GRANTH). Thus, Prophet SHRI RAM CHANDER JI was the incarnation of demiurge god VISHNU and the dominant spiritually sick people, i.e. people haughty of the "letters" of the VEDAS, were of the KHATRI tribe. Further degeneration of the religious quality "contentment" led people into the DOAAPAR AGE or the Bronze Age in which the KAIROS displayed ungratefulness towards their real cousins PANDOS by maltreating them to the extent of not giving them even five villages to settle down; a thorough display of cruelty and discontentment by the KAIROS towards PANDOS whose father looked after them when they were young. The dominant tribe of this Age was YADAV and, therefore, the Prophet of this Age SHRI KRISHAN BALDEV JI took his birth among the people of dominant YADAV tribe as Prophet Shri Ram Chander Ji had taken His birth among the dominant people of learned Khatri tribe. The people of Yadav tribe were simpletons or stones in nature and they had among them a political problem i.e. the question of land for their living. Now, the simpletons could not understand the religious principles, â€œHis Wordâ€, as the intelligent and clever Khatris did from Shri Ram Chander Ji but they needed a "Guide" to lead them out of this political dilemma where policy (NEETI) plays an important role. So, here Prophet Shri Krishan Baldev Ji guided the righteous PANDOS in the political war against the cruel and unjust KAIROS by explaining to them the fundamentals of political policies through practical demonstrations. Therefore, SHRI KRISHAN BALDEV JI was known as the "NEETI PARSHOTAM AVTAAR",
