The second reason was that the ‘true knowledge of God’
which was given by God Himself to the Saints of Bharatvarsh (India) was
abused and suppressed by the English people to such an extent that the
people of the world could not be benefited with the knowledge of such a
Divine God Who is extremely kind and loving and Who is the eternal friend
of all the souls. Thus, on one side, the western scientists received an
unagreeable image of God from their own popular religion, and, on the
other side, they were kept bereft of the true knowledge of the Gracious
God Whose Divine glory glorified the tenets of all the Hindu scriptures.
The last three centuries were most important in the
history of the world when the science of physics, cosmology and almost all
other sciences developed. This was the time when the world really needed
the scientific treasures of the Hindu scriptures along with the loving
Grace of God. But it couldn’t happen for the reasons described earlier.
The western world knew only mythologies.
Before 2,000 years, when the world had a fair amount of population, the
communication between the countries was extremely poor. There were only
some trade connections between them. Even up to 200 years ago the
communication system was very poor. The newspaper industry started in the
early 19th century and national telephone communication systems started
developing only at the end of the 19th century when the Bell telephone
company spread its services to most of the major cities of the USA.
It has been explained earlier how the mythologies
developed in the West through the trade connections, and, on that basis,
how the religions of the world were formed. Thus, from the very
beginning, the western civilization knew only the mythologies and the
mythological religions of their country. Because of the lack of
communication they could not receive the Divine truth of the Hindu
scriptures which was in great detail; and when the communication systems
developed, at that time the British were ruling India.
In this situation, when the people of the world know
only mythological God and the dogmatic descriptions of their religious
books, it takes time and patience to understand the true reality of the
supreme Divine God, His Divine abode, His Divine forms, His Divine Saints
and Their Divine actions which are described in the scriptures like the
Upnishads, the Puranas, the Gita and the Brahm Sutra etc.
Had the world learned the real truth of Hindu
scriptures which is Graciously gifted by God Himself for the good of
humankind, there would have been real and true ‘God consciousness’ in the
world. The crime rate and the political exploitations in the world would
have been much less than they are at present, and the scientific
researches and the developments that are related to the evolution or
creation of the cosmos (or any part of it) would have been going in the
right direction instead of going on in the wrong direction; because Hindu
scriptures give the true guideline of the creation of the universe,
creation of our earth planet and the sun, development of life on the earth
planet, and the karmic and devotional destiny of the human beings.
