India Proactively Preparing Its Population for Extra-Terrestrial Disclosure by the Year 2012

India is clearly a country and a people on the rise.

Along with Russia, India has become one of the leading lights towards extra-terrestrial disclosure and is proactively preparing its populace for this impending event.

One of the main Indian newspapersIndia Daily, has written a series of editorials and articles over the past several years that are mincing no words that disclosure will absolutely take place by theyear 2012. It seems evident that India is at the forefront in shattering the myth and secrecy behind extra-terrestrial’s presence on Earth.

They have consistently provided a litany of secret information that is quite astonishing to consider that it is emanating from a mainstream news source. Not surprisingly, this kind of vital information simply would never be found in a mainstream US news outlet. Period!

A headline from a February 6, 2007 India Daily editorial read, “Major space agencies of the world cooperating to reveal the truth about UFOs in 2012 – why in 2012?” This editorial went on to predict that the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), along with other foreign space programs, are actively planning on revealing the extra-terrestrial presence no later than the year 2012.

“The mainstream media has started talking about UFO all on a sudden. That is the first indication that something is happening behind the scene. Why all on a sudden, the History channel, The Discovery Channel and the National Geography Channel will start broadcasting the UFO news, cover up stories and more? Even the Fox channel has joined the bandwagon,” this editorial speculates.

Coupled with a large percentage of their 1 billion people dedicated towards spiritual evolution and enlightenment, it seems all but inevitable that India will become one of the major players in the world community in the not too distant future. Particularly, if they are the first nation, or one of the first nations, to disclose the extra-terrestrial presence.

And naturally, the Indian government is one of the growing number of countries that have made the bold decision to release their heretofore secret UFO files. Hardly a coincidence. While the United States government remains blindly indifferent to acknowledging that their UFO files even exist.

What is further interesting to note is that India shares a border with Kazakhstan (part of the former Soviet Union), and China, two other nations that also appear to be taking extra-terrestrial disclosure seriously. With Kazakhstan opening the world’s first embassy for extra-terrestrials, China has seen a flurry of UFO activity during the year of 2010.

Several new videos of UFO craft have been appearing on the web and it would seem that China’s citizenry is being permitted, at least on some occasions, to reveal this footage to the world, despite the strict communist government control mechanisms.

It would be prudent to keep an eye on Russia, India and China as we march ever closer towards to eventual disclosure and the breaking of the long held secrets that we are alone in the universe.

The Lemurian Connection

Posted by Admin on October 4, 2010

http://www.kryon.com/k_chanelshastaB04.html

This live channelling was given on June 20, 2004 at the 7th Annual Kryon Summer Light Conference
in Mount Shasta, California.

[This channelling has been added-to and enhanced by Kryon, through Lee Carroll in a rechannelling process over the actual transcribed channelling. This has been done in order to make it more valuable for the written word and to bring clarity to concepts that were given energetically within the live channellings.]


Greetings, dear ones, I am Kryon of Magnetic Service. This room has been filled with so much energy in these last days! [This is the third day of the Shasta conference.] There has been great frivolity, teaching, and healing. There has also been revelation – perhaps even the beginning of a revolution in personal thinking.

You’ve heard from the entities from beyond the veil. You might say that this is one of them. [Kryon smile] Yet each one has said many of the same things. They’ve told you that we, from the other side, are only a fraction of an inch away. We know who you are and what you’ve been through. But true grandness lies within you, and this is a common theme of the channelling today. It was said by Adama [channelled by Louise Jones], by the mother energy of Gaia [channelled by Pepper Lewis], and yes, by myself as well. So we ask you, how many times do you have to hear this message before belief starts to set in?

Let’s start at the beginning. Could it be that what you’re hearing is actually real? Could it be that this is a voice channelled by a Human Being, but which represents something as old as the earth? Could it be that this voice represents many old souls who are “family,” coming from a place that we call home, but which you call mysterious? Kryon speaks as a group, and this isn’t new news. Can you understand this? Could such a thing be that what we call the love of family – of God – is palatable and thick – something you can feel right now, and which dwells within you at the level of your DNA? Could any of these things really be so?

Again, we remind you that this is the way in which all the messages from God have been delivered on the planet! No matter what religion or belief system, no matter what source of spirituality, a Human has delivered it. Did you ever think of this? This mysterious thing called channelling is responsible for all the scriptures on Earth… from God to Human, and then to many Humans. Perhaps it took place in a vision, or perhaps an angel spoke. Maybe it was in real time, as this one is. Maybe it was a connection with a writer, such as the man Paul while in prison, or a message from a burning bush, or an angel in a cave. But I remind you again that this is the way of it. God did not write your greatest scriptures… men did!

The greatest painters on Earth created some of the most divine pieces of artwork that exist, and their hands were guided from the other side of the veil. When some of the masters wrote the greatest compositions of music, the ones that fill your heart with feeling, both current and old, their creative energies were guided from beyond the veil. These were also channelled! Yet there are still those of you who say that this process is odd, unusual, and strange.

But for many of the old souls in this room and for those reading this, this experience is real. It’s so real that many of you are actually beginning to feel it. So again we tell you that there’s an entourage that has been here all weekend and who never left. We never dismissed them in previous channellings, as we often do. Instead, for these days we developed a sanctuary here… a safe place, and they stayed all weekend.

Let this also be a sanctuary for the reader! Do you know that we see you? This is a giant space where time does not exist, and many are hearing and many are reading. Years from this time/date will pass, yet the reader is still “here.” It’s a safe place, in these next moments, for release. It’s a safe place for renewal. It’s a safe place to smile and experience the joy of Spirit. It’s a safe place to develop a wise understanding of the un-understandable. It’s a safe place to question the interdimensional, and expect answers that make no sense, but which are indeed safe. That’s what sanctuaries are. They’re places that feature two-way communication, even though they’re often seen as only one-way.

There’s the potential of much happening, even within this giant room of listeners and readers. This is a time when some will be taken away from the earthly language that’s being spoken and instead lapse into what they would think might be sleep, but it isn’t. It’s a trancelike state where your fear is washed away and your Higher-Self speaks to you in a language you can’t understand. We count on that, since it’s a part of the communication process. Only the Higher-Self can truly explain interdimensional aspects to a 4D creature as you pretend to be. You see, you’re a 4D entity in a multiple-D reality. You only see the beginning consciousness of reality, and will stay that way unless you actively desire to expand it. The other realities that are around you are still there whether you wish to see them or not!

Now… instructions to my partner: You may transcribe this, but don’t publish this channelling until I tell you that it’s time. [Kryon said that September would be the first time to allow it.] The reasons will escape you at the moment, but will become obvious in retrospect. So for this moment, during the exposure of this information, I shall call upon many of those interdimensional beings who wish to join us, to do so. From that sanctuary called the mountain of Shasta – a place where many gathered so long ago, for this moment, for this time on Earth, please join us. These beings have been waiting for humanity to become interdimensional, and this is what is now happening. The invitation from us is that they would join us along with the entourage of Kryon, and together with the Humans present, we would honor their lineage. Think of it as a reunion of sorts – Lemurian to Lemurian, helper with worker.

See this mountain behind us [Shasta]? Perhaps you can look at it in a different light than you have in the past. It’s not an odd place where occasionally you’ll see forms of light. It’s an interdimensional home. We and the Lemurians within it see it as a time capsule, which is something packed with energy and information that’s placed in waiting. It has a living energy of the past that vibrates until it’s discovered. When it is discovered, then the energy is released. We told you that this release begins during these years, so the time capsule is being discovered!

I wish to give you so much more, but even before we begin the discussion of the lineage of the Lemurian, I’d like to tell you something about interdimensionality – it’s a reminder, a lesson. Even some of the things perceived and communicated this weekend haven’t been fully understood, so we’ll start with a little science. We’re going to give you some reminders. You cannot separate the masters of science from the masters of spirituality. The concepts are one and the same, and someday they’ll meld so completely that you won’t be able to tell them apart. For the beginning physics of interdimensionality starts to unravel the mysteries of the unusual attributes of spirituality.

You cannot throw one away in order to understand the other. You cannot ignore one and concentrate on the other. For they exist together. Perhaps there are some spiritually minded Humans here who have no wish to know about high physics? That’s understandable, for it certainly goes the other way as well! Yet I would encourage you to look upon some of the primers that are available that would explain the relativity of time. Look to some of the basic explanations of what you’ve called Super-String theory. For in this science there are jewels of understanding that will fit right into your spirituality and even some of your experiences.

The Spiritual Time Paradox
For instance, there was a question asked yesterday of Gaia: “If we’re speeding up, why is it that I, working with others, am trying to stretch time out and make it slower? Is this appropriate? What’s happening? How could there be the slow and the fast together? We’re supposed to live longer, yet can we do this with an increased speed of time? We’re told to be in the now, which is almost a time-stop! Isn’t that a dichotomy with the science of time speeding up?” Gaia gave a beautiful and correct answer: “It is relative to your dimensionality and appropriate in your reality, that you would feel both.” But some didn’t understand how this could be. But it is the right answer.

So, in a more elementary way, let me help to explain even further what Gaia was speaking of, for it’s important. You cannot separate spirituality from high physics. You’re going faster in your reality. This appears to be a speed-up in time. Actually, it’s not. It’s just a vibratory increase of your place in space that makes you feel like time is sped up. It is you that has sped up. When Einstein gave you the postulates of the interdimensional workings of time, he said: “The faster you go, the more you’ll stretch time and slow it down.” Do you remember? Doesn’t that sound like a dichotomy? It is truly an interdimensional feature of both physics and spirituality. So again we remind you of the spiritual/physics: You’re now traveling much faster [vibrating higher] than when the first consciousness of the planet was developed. With an increase in vibration comes a feeling of change within your time. You can feel the energy of the apparent speed-up upon you, the faster you go. But the faster you go, the more stretched time will become! That’s not metaphysics, that’s physics!

Think of time as a giant rubber mat with special rules. The faster you go on this mat, the more it will stretch in all directions. Now, think of that mat as representing one year of your life. The faster you go, the more it stretches to accommodate you, no matter what your speed. So, no matter how fast you run this “year mat,” it will adjust in size so that the “year” still lasts as long as you think is a year. This isn’t dichotomous. These two features exist together very firmly in both physics and metaphysics. It is, by the way, dear Human Being, the core of what we’ve asked you to do in interdimensional ways. We’ve asked you to slow the clock on the body. It’s appropriate to stretch time because you’re going fast enough to do it. Perhaps this will help you understand something that would seem to be on opposite ends of logic. Time is relative to speed.

All this teaching is about broaching reality. What do you “see” around you? Is it complete? Is there anything else there? Gaia answered another question with profound wisdom. The question was: “How can I get out of pain?” Gaia replied: “It is the reality that you choose to stay in, which keeps you there.” Doesn’t that hint that beyond your horizon there are many other realities for your life, should you choose to search for them. And that’s the truth of the messages from all of us!

Interdimensionality… Again
Dimensionality is something that’s perceived as complete. It’s tough to tell Humans that everything they see around them only represents a little of what’s actually there. This is more than confusing, for it gets into areas that border on what doctors will see as your state of mental hearth. It offends many to tell them that they’re not seeing a complete picture, for this is often a very personal thing, what Humans perceive. When you question 4D reality, you’re often seen on the edge of sanity. Do you see angels? (Relax. So did all the prophets.) But that experience might land you in hot water in your current society. Many will question you, since you “see” what’s beyond what many think is a complete reality. Your society admits that 11 dimensions represent normal atomic structure (actually, there are many more than that), yet they define reality as “what most Humans are able to see and feel.” Therefore, you might say that there’s an admission of 11, but you’re onlyallowed to see 4. See any more and you’re strange indeed! If you do it too often, you might end up in a meeting like this, or reading what you’re holding in your hands.

We’ve often told a metaphoric story about the isolated Human Being on an island, who has never seen civilization in 2004 other than his own island. Suddenly, you blindfold this Human (with their permission) and take him swiftly, as if by magic, to a high-rise building in one of your cities. Then you put him in an elevator and take off his blindfold. As you proceed to go from floor to floor, opening the door at each, and visually explore what is seen out the elevator door, there’s shock within the islander. He’s amazed at how it could be that the room on the other side of that special door keeps changing every time the door opens! How could those on the other side of that door move the furniture so quickly? So the islander doesn’t understand something as simple as an elevator, since it defies anything they know or have seen or experienced. So dimensionality is truly relative to your experience. We’re going to speak of that now, for we wish to tell you a little about Lemuria.

About Lemuria
It’s not our intention to inform you about Telos [the interdimensional city in the mountain], for that, my dear friends, is well described and well channelled in a very succinct and beautiful way. No. Instead, we wish to go back and tell you a little bit about the ancient Lemurian experience, and just touch on a couple of items that may help you understand a bit more about this profound family.

Again, we wish to advise you: Do not go back in your time frame, in your anthropology, in your sociology, any further than 100,000 years, because you won’t find anyone like you. Sometimes this statement has been misunderstood or even misinterpreted to say that Kryon said that there were no Humans before 100,000 years ago. That is ridiculous. What we’re saying is that the earth that was created for your Human test went through many stages, all needed and necessary. Your spiritual and conscious development didn’t happen all at once. Indeed, hundreds of thousands of years were part of the Lemurian past. They’re the core race of the planet. They’re older than the Sumerians, and also those from the Indus Valley. They were here long enough for their language to evolve and change grandly and greatly and provide the seeds of some of the most profound languages that you know today… of the Egyptians, the Israelis, the and the Polynesians… all derivatives of what we’ll call the original language of Solara Maru. In these languages were contained basic truths that even today you grapple with, and it’s due to something that the Lemurians had, but that you don’t. Let me talk about the Lemurian, the physical ones on Earth long ago. They were the core race, but they’re not like you are today.

The Seed Biology
The first is their grandness. This was the race that received the seed biology from the stars. What you call your beginning humanity was provided through the Lemurians by the Pleiadians. The energy from the Seven Sisters came and visited physically, and this off-world energy contributed to the Lemurian experience, even to the culture, to their race, and the way they looked. I’m going to give you something; I’m going to throw you a challenge: I want you to see something that wasn’t realized before.

[What follows refers to the Shasta conference experience:] Friday evening on the display [the screen on stage], you got to see the a channelled image of the high priest of Telos, and his name was Adama. You could look upon this channelled illustration of what he looks like, which is quite accurate. You had over an hour to gaze upon it. I want you to remember it, for here’s the challenge: There have been those who have visited from the Pleiadians on and off through the last hundred years. Three major visitations have occurred, and more than one of them has been well documented. Illustrations have been drawn of those who have met with the Humans, and those illustrations are available in your libraries showing what a Pleiadian looks like from the standpoint of those who were visited and who reported it. Now I’ll tell you what they look like: They look just like Adama! Go find the drawings. Let this be proof of the lineage of the planet and the part that the Lemurian played, for it would be folly to think that somehow all these from different times and cultures somehow got together to play a trick on you. They didn’t. It’s the way the Pleiadians looked… and also the Lemurians.

Many times we’ve called you Lemurian because so many of you are old souls, older than recorded history. And you were indeed part of an experience that you can’t remember, but which surges through your DNA. You see, the Lemurians weren’t like you, and this is going to sound odd… but they had an added dimension of normal perception. You can call the added perception Number 5 if you wish, but in interdimensional talk that really isn’t accurate.

The Lemurians walked upon this earth with a dimensional quality that had attributes beyond yours. The Lemurians understood interdimensionality long before Telos. They were also aware, over time, that there was a devolution going on (an expression that we will use as the opposite of evolution), and that they were losing certain abilities. In addition, they were also aware that their time was limited at a certain point on the planet as they realized the inevitable water was coming. This devolution was due simply to the fact that some of what they were given by the Pleiadians did not survive over time within the energy of planet Earth.

There have been those who have asked how physical beings like Humans, back then, could suddenly decide to become interdimensional and enter a mountain and stay there with the attributes of a time capsule [the Lemurian story of Telos and Shasta]. That is too unbelievable! It’s not something that you can conceive, and it becomes eye-rolling information to those who hear it. Truly, it’s because the Lemurians had a perception, given to them by the Pleiadians, that was equivalent to one more dimension than you have.

Let’s back up for a moment and do some disclosure. We know that talking about a race of beginning Humans who had extra-dimensional perception is a wild idea. But there’s some evidence, and I will now give you something to think about: The closest ancient race that you have artifacts for are the Sumerians. Now, the Sumerians were far removed from the Lemurians in time, but they still possessed a bit of the awareness that the Lemurians provided in their culture. All these things happened over thousands of years. The challenge: Go take a look at the Sumerian artifacts. First of all, you’ll see that their computations were all base-6 (a derivative of base-12 math, and a staple of nature and real physics). Next, the artifact known as The Berlin Seal clearly shows that they knew all about your solar system! They knew of the motion of your planets, and even that some had rings… all without any evidence of this culture having telescopes.

Your science would laugh at this and completely dismiss the idea that they could know any of these things. They’ll tell you that this society must have featured lucky guesses. But the odds of a lucky guess that would depict an accurate solar system, even showing the rings of Saturn, would be farfetched indeed. Let me remind you that your own science has postulated that atomic structure is all interdimensional, and that your idea of reality as a Human is less than half of what’s actually there. They’ve also told you that when you start to study the other dimensions, both time and distance are almost completely voided, entangled, and in a quantum state.
Now, I take you back to the Sumerians. They didn’t have telescopes, yet they knew all about the cosmos. This is due to the fact that “interdimensional sight” gave them this. It was absolutely intuitive within their perception to “know” what was around them. Neither time nor distance was a factor in “seeing” the solar system. So what you need 2004 technology for, they did intuitively. The same is true of the Lemurians, only more so. The Lemurians not only had this ability, but also intuitive knowledge of the interdimensional DNA. This was what led them to easily build the Temple of Rejuvenation, and allow them to use magnetics to alter their body clocks.

So, understand that none of these Sumerian revelations needed high science, as you might say they would, but rather only a simple perception that they had, but you do not. It would be like a sightless society stumbling upon one that could see. If the culture had been blind for centuries, it would seem to them amazing to find an ancient one that had sight. In the sightless reality, they had to go and discover what a mountain far away was like, but you could “see” it from a distance! This is a very similar situation: one perception versus another.

The Earth’s Spiritual Evolution
Because of the new energy of Earth on this planet, the increase in vibration [speed] and the subsequent expansion of time, some of the abilities of humanity are returning. Our teachings have been exactly like this, and now perhaps it’s making more sense. Many of you are claiming what’s being called “activating your DNA.” Some have even called it ascension status, but I will tell you that it’s more like a return to Lemuria.

The mountain behind you [Shasta] isn’t changing. The Lemurians inside are no different than they ever were. Instead, they’ve been waiting for you to change, and you’re becoming more like them! You’re beginning to activate those pieces and parts of the DNA that were always there, but which are interdimensional and therefore not intuitive for you. So in the grand scheme of things, they’ve been waiting for you. And so it is that what you’ve accomplished has created the ability to see them and know what they’ve done in Telos. They’ve been patient. Their time is slightly different from yours, but they’ve been patient. They knew that if Humanity would ever evolve spiritually, that they’d be able to be seen, and to help. Now is that time.

There was also a firm belief that they’d be a part of the future of the planet. This is why they sequestered themselves in an interdimensional state. So again I place upon you a shifting reality that may be different from what you thought. The mountain doesn’t change – you do! From year to year, as you change and grasp what this means, many will be able to see more and feel more about what’s really happening there. The healings will become grander as you understand what you’re dealing with. Those in the mountain will be able to visit you in a stronger way because of your understanding of your own lineage. You give permission for them to help you.
The time capsule that’s here in the mountain, therefore, has the same attributes we spoke of yesterday when we spoke of the Venus Transit [channelling of June 19]. It’s an energy that deals with something that was always there, but that’s now awakened and ready to be enhanced. Remember this: Interdimensionality is always there. It isn’t something you create. If there are 12 apples and you only see 4, it doesn’t mean that the others don’t exist. If you suddenly develop the ability to see one more apple, don’t be surprised if it says, “Hello, I’ve been waiting for you!” It was always there, waiting for you to discover it. Now you have more sustenance than before [more apples to eat].

You’re growing a new planet consciousness, and you have help. This was the Lemurian intent all along. Those who gather with you now are saying, “Finally, there is awakening!” They’re looking at you and they’re saying, “We’re not or unusual, and we’re not strange. We’re simply an awakening dimension. If you had never chosen this, we would have been there anyway, and would have survived until the end of the earth along with you. You may never have awakened, but we would still be in the mountain, simply unfulfilled in our task.” That’s the beauty of the mission of Telos. It exists for humanity and not for itself. It’s the time capsule of what might be, only activated if humanity made certain choices… which it did.

The Schools of Lemuria
Let me tell you a little more about Lemuria and some attributes of their society. You might say, “Why would you do such a thing?” The reason is so you can start to “connect the dots” as to what else is happening on the planet. I now speak of the Lemurians way back then, in a land that was beautiful before the ocean covered it. Let me tell you about their children.

Schooling was very, very different in major Lemuria. This was before Atlantis, and it went like this: The teachers were called elders. They were greatly respected, for they dispensed the knowledge of the culture. They were all seniors, and represented some of the highest attributes in society. Yet they didn’t run the schools as your teachers do, or have anything to do with day-to-day business. There were no administrators or administration buildings in the schools either, and the buildings were all small, isolated, and unconnected classrooms.

There was no linear system either! Instead, the elders would get together and decide what the children should learn and know by a certain time. The parents would send their children to the local classrooms at a certain age. In a typical classroom, the children and the elder [teacher] would all decide together what had to be learned. The children would then take over and collectively decide how fast they could learn it, and report this to the elder. The teacher would be flexible and go along with the children’s plans. Then the children would often choose a leader among them, or a rotation schedule of student leaders, to help with the tasks of maintenance and administration of what their goal was.

So the elder was there to dispense the knowledge and make certain the children got the appropriate knowledge. But the children had high conceptual ideas and could often conceive of the entire project of the year’s learning in one day. So even without the actual knowledge, they would lay out what they felt was the best way to learn it, the quickest method, and how to best “plug it in” to their schedule in class. When they felt they’d learned it, they would request to be tested. If the class passed, they would all earn the end of the term. Then the vacation would begin (the real goal of the children at that age).

So instead of a common term of duration, they’d start at the same time, but there were no set ending points. So the children would determine the term’s duration by how fast they’d learn. This was conceptual, and reflected their ability to understand what had to be learned without actually knowing the information. There was no school year or grades – only the goal of certain degree of knowledge, and the goal to get it done so they could play! The children were in charge, but they absolutely understood that they had to learn what was required.

Now many might exclaim, “No, this is too unusual and odd. It couldn’t work. Human nature wouldn’t allow for it!” My reply is this: Perhaps 4D Human nature would never allow for it, but a conceptual, multidimensional child could do it easily. The reason I’m telling you this is that this is the beginning attribute of the Indigo Child that we channelled many years ago. It’s very Lemurian! Even some of the “labels” of the Indigo Children were listed as interdimensional.

Back to Lemuria: If there were slow learners in the class, the children would see the situation immediately and tutor them! What you now call homework was instead an assignment for each student to tutor another so that they could all keep up with the class. But the only things they took home were other students! The faster they learned, the quicker the vacation. It made sense to the kids. You might say, “Well, what about those who were troublemakers? Were there any of those in this great land of Lemuria?” Of course. Make no judgments as I reveal how this was handled.

The children would handle the discipline themselves – oh, not by the bully system, for that’s not in the consciousness of a conceptually minded child. Remember, in this type of consciousness, the overview is the goal of the group, not individual power. The children would handle it logically. If there was another student getting in the way of their vacation, they would tutor them in the best they could. If some didn’t respond, or were troublemakers, eventually the students would cast them out. Anyone who was cast out of school by a consensus of the class could never rejoin that class. Instead, they had to go to other classes that were not in major Lemuria. This (of course) created another complete society, one which was dishonored and often didn’t live long, since they didn’t earn the right to go to the Temple of Rejuvenation, which was a huge part of the health system of Lemuria.

Harsh, you might say? Indeed. Within the evolved standards of today, perhaps it was. But this is how the schools worked. Your society has progressed in ways that they did not because you’ve worked on other parts of your enlightenment.

These explanations may help you understand why school is so difficult for the current Indigo, for the Crystal, and for all children of the new Earth energy. For within them is a layer of DNA that’s activated and ready to work. And it remembers. I’m going to tell you about that in just a moment.

Lemurian Health Care
I’d like to tell you about the Lemurian health-care system. You know, Lemurians didn’t have tremendously high science. They didn’t have the computers you do. Instead, they had highly developed interdimensional intuition. Those of you who know what a medical intuitive is will understand this. All of them had this kind of intuitive knowledge. The body is smart. Lemurian bodies, depending on how far back you go, were far larger than yours. But as we said, they devolved… became smaller and shorter. They were aware that this was happening. That also might give you information that Pleiadians are larger than you are. They still are.

Here is what the Lemurian society decided to do about health care. Most of the resources of Lemuria were spent making sure that all were as healthy as they could be. There were no health-care payments since they were a conceptual culture. They had a far better evolved intuition about the entire picture, rather than an individual Human one. The Lemurian society intuitively realized that the healthier the population, the more it helped the economy. There was land ownership, but of a very different kind. It was group ownership. Therefore, it always involved group decision.

If you had one who was sick all the time, then they weren’t able to share their load. This hurt the whole, so they found out very quickly that if everyone was healthy, they had a far better economy.

Now, again, I’ll discuss the reason I take you to Lemurian history. It’s because this very thing is about to happen once more on your planet. Suddenly, the realization that Human Beings who aren’t sick can buy land and pay taxes will create a revolutionary idea… if a government can heal its population, it can have an abundant society. What an idea! Watch for a shift of funds, resources, and focus regarding this. How can we cure the most for the least amount of money? How can we take from one financial focus and apply it to another? Did you ever wonder how you’re going to cure the diseases of the planet? Many have complained: “Humanity will never reach the point of enlightenment where they’ll dedicate enough funds to heal the masses.” You’re right! So another method, which makes far more sense to your current Human nature, will! Do not make any judgments about this, but be aware that you’re about to face a new idea that’s all about “economic healing.” How else would the earth provide something so needed at this time? The answer: Find a way to fit this into the agendas of those with the biggest amount of money to invest. Healing will become an investment in global health. How will the investors get their return? They’ll take a portion of the GNP of the governments they work with, as measured by the “cure rate” of the country. Watch for this. It’s inevitable, and under way at this moment.

And by the way, watch for Yawee to make a difference in that paradigm. That’s why he’s here. Again, we mention him. And we’ll mention him again [speaking of Dr. Todd Ovokaitys, who’s in the audience].

Layer 7 of DNA
Let me tell you about another layer of DNA that we haven’t mentioned. So far we’ve given you the names and purposes of six layers of interdimensional DNA. We’ve given you information, the attributes of each, and their special energetic names. We’ve talked about the fear layer – the ascension layers, and we’ve talked about the I AM layer. Each had a name, but it’s not that important since it’s an esoteric piece of information, and the Lemurian culture, who could actually see the layers, had names for them that are not the ones we’ve given you in Hebrew.

But the name in Hebrew helped to describe the actual function of the layer, since this is a known core language. Lemurian is not. We told you that all the layers are the names of God in Hebrew, and we’ve itemized them to you up through the sixth one. Now I’m going to reveal Number 7. I’m going to give you the name, but because this a Lemurian-based layer, I’m not going to give you the Hebrew name until later. Instead, I’m going to give you the name of Layer 7 in the Lemurian language.

Many of the layers I’m revealing over these months are given to you because they need to be activated. This is accomplished through intent of the individual Human Being, which we’ve discussed many times. There’s a layer of interdimensional DNA which is Number 7 of 12. It has lain dormant all of your life, waiting for a special energy to be established on the planet. It vibrates with the same tune as those Telosians [Lemurians from Telos in the mountain] who are in this room and it is called the Lemurian Layer. It is Layer 7.

Hoa Yawee Maru is the Lemurian name of Layer 7. *

Its meaning in Lemurian is difficult to translate into English, for it might not make sense. The tones that are sung mean things in addition to the syllables. How it is sung means a different tonality of information. So hearing it and reading it are very different. But basically it means this: the DNA home language. Hoa Yawee Maru. Hoa is the homelandYaweemeans “DNA” in Lemurian. And Maru means “language.” So here we are with the explanation of Number 7, and now I’m going to tell you what it does. It vibrates. The Telosians in the room want to touch you and say, “This is what we’ve been telling you about. It’s time to activate this.” The higher this layer vibrates, the faster it goes. The more oscillations that are present, the more time will stretch and the more the ones in the mountain can greet you. This is the Lemurian master-layer. It is the core seed layer.

There are only a few who sit with an activated seventh layer in this room. My partner isn’t one of them. For his activation was begun last night [pause while Lee recovers from this information and now understands what happened the previous evening!]. Now he knows what that was about. There are a few others who are here who have their Number 7 vibrating, and they’re the ones who meet with Adama [speaking of Louise Jones] and also the ones who have been given Lemurian symbols and sounds [speaking of Dr. Todd Ovokaitys]. We wouldn’t tell you these things if they weren’t accurate and true. There is much here for those who are awakening.

Finally, there would be those who would say, “All right, what do we do with this information? How can we put it together?” First, you’ve got to believe it. You’re not going to go anywhere without owning these things as your core truth. Dear Human Being, you can’t pretend on this one. You can’t wait and see on this one. It’s either there or it isn’t. Be true to your belief and start understanding that these things are real. Interdimensionality exists, just like the physicists say it does. It’s not faith. Faith represents belief in the unseen. This goes further than that. This is belief in the operation of a concept that’s already partially in your reality.

When you sit in the chair, your reality is that the chair will always hold you. That’s not faith in the unseen. The chair isn’t invisible. Instead, that’s pure belief in a concept based on the structure of a physical chair. Yet there really is no proof that the chair will hold you until your action of sitting in it provides that proof. That’s your reality, and you sit in the chair and there’s no surprise when it holds your weight. In fact, you’d be shocked if it didn’t hold your weight. This is more than wishing, or having faith. It’s owning the idea that a chair will always work.

Interdimensionality is real science. It’s like the chair. Your belief therefore is, “The interdimensional information will hold me.” So, That’s Number 1. If you don’t get past that, nothing will work within these interdimensional things. You might say, “Well, Kryon, how do we do that?” Let me ask you: How do you believe in anything? Start to peel that onion of duality we’ve talked about so often. Let the Higher-Self of your essence speak to you in terms that you’ll understand, and begin to vibrate in these ways. How do we explain intuition? How can you explain the color blue to a person who’s been sightless from birth? What are the steps of learning? Sometimes things must just be done without steps or linear motion. Sometimes they occur just because you’re beginning to ask for them!

Be still and know that you are God. Understand that these things are yours. It’s simple, yet complex if you feel that it must be. The intellect gets in the way, the Human gets in the way, and the paradigm of 4D gets in the way when you try to itemize the steps. What are the steps to explain how to love someone? What are the steps to find intuition? Do you understand? Some things cannot be given to you in a 4D manner. So sit and let it happen, for it’s part of your natural biological process just waiting to be asked.

Number 2: Greet it daily! Talk to your cells. Look at their grandness, speak out loud to them so they know you’re the boss. It enhances belief. It solidifies a new kind of reality.

Number 3: Our advice: Visit the portals of the planet if you can. (By the way, you’re sitting in one [Shasta]. We’ve mentioned some of the other portals, and they’re the remaining Lemurian mountaintops: the Easter Islands, Hawaii, New Zealand, and Mt. Shasta. There are a few more as well.) Then feel the energy that’s there, and fill yourself with it. It will suit you.

Number 4: Partner with Gaia. What does this mean? It means “feel the crystalline.” Go and lie in it. Feel the grass; put your feet in the stream and know that a piece of you is there. Partner with the mother, and understand that you’re entangled in a quantum state with everything you see. As Gaia said yesterday [through Pepper Lewis], it’s not a mother energy as much as it is a sister or a brother. It’s not the grandness of a marriage. Instead, it’s a grandness and magnificence and sacredness of a best friend. And that’s the truth.

All right, we’re almost finished here. Layer 7 has still another name. It’s the Dragon layer – the creative, the star seed; the Lemurian, the Indigo. It’s awakening consciousness that brings you again to the potential of the original seed biology. This layer has been dormant as a time capsule. It’s the one that has the medical intuitive in it.

So we’ve reached that point where we say that it’s time for those entities who came for the weekend to begin their withdrawal.” Those from the Kryon entourage are leaving, hanging up the bowls they used to wash your feet, going back through the crack in the veil. Then there are the ones from the mountain. Do you know how long they’ve waited for you? They’re in service to humanity; they’re your family; they’re your lineage, and they greet you fully even as they leave.

As you activate your DNA anywhere on Earth, they’re there. They’re out of time, out of distance, but they’re there. It’s part of the plan. It’s part of the whole. It’s part of Gaia. It’s part of Kryon, and it’s my family, too.

Leave differently from how you came. As you ride down this mountain, remember this moment. Remember that there’s family here. Remember the time capsule in the mountain behind you. Don’t be surprised if there’s new joy in your life, for that’s what Laver 7 does when it begins to be used: It sees the whole concept of life. Don’t be surprised if you laugh at yourself. Don’t be surprised if some family members fall in love with you all over again, for your light has just become brighter.

Dear Human, we leave this place with great joy, and never again with a hint of sadness. This is a celebration for those who call themselves Human. And so it is that the sanctuary that is here becomes internalized, and goes home with each of you. Dear Human, you’re loved beyond measure by all of us, and it has been our privilege to be here tonight.

And so it is.

Kryon

* Layer 7 in Hebrew is Kadumah Elohim, which means “revealed divinity.”

Independence of India

Independence of India

¤ Sailing of San Gabriel To India

Mahatma GandhiWhen the San Gabriel sailed around the Cape of Good Hope to finally dock at Calicut, a prosperous port and an independent principality on the Malabar Coast in May, 1498, half a century of the Portuguese tentative to find a sea route to India was finally crowned with success.

The man behind the quest was Vasco da Gama (1460-1524) – a devout Roman Catholic whose nightlong vigil in a Lisbon chapel before commending himself to the unsure waters had finally paid off. and if ‘Christians and spices’ were his twin pretext at the outset, da Gama’s successive visits to India, first in 1500 to set up a ‘factory’ or a trading base, then in 1502 to wreak havoc on the port and Arab trading vessels alike, proved that Portugal and its prime sailor had other things on their mind as well.
The Portuguese were probably here to stay, and da Gama was to earn himself the distinction of Governor of all Portuguese possessions in India in the twilight of his life.

While da Gamma paved the way for the Portuguese to India, Dom Alphonso D’Albuquerque (1495-1515) chalked out and consolidated Portugal’s trade routes to India during the sixteenth century.

¤ Portuguese Emerged As New Ruler

Albuquerque was an imperial rather than a commercial emissary of Portugal. Harnessing strategic ports mainly in the Persian Gulf, along the west coast of India and beyond, overrode the need to garner support of the local rulers. This drove him to capture Goa on the west coast of India in 1510, Melaka (Malacca) on the Malay peninsula in 1511, Hormuz at the opening of the Persian Gulf in 1515, Bassein in 1534, Daman and Diu in 1535 and Colombo in 1597. The series of offensives proved that the Portuguese were the new rulers of the roost.

Their mercantile and imperial strategies were paralleled by a drive to convert the masses to Roman Catholic Christianity. Temples disappeared from the Goan landscape to be replaced with churches, monasteries and seminaries. As the Portuguese Viceroy in India, Albuquerque encouraged mixed marriages with the intent of procuring fresh recruits, especially in the form of offsprings, to serve the Portuguese project in India and elsewhere.

However, with the rise of military, political and maritime mights like the Dutch and the English, History forced the Portuguese in India into the wings.

Unable to cast its net much further than Goa after being united to Spain, Portugal’s focus of interest shifted from India to more lucrative lands.

¤ The Arrival of Dutch

The Dutch sailed their ships eastward for the first time in 1595. However, their first stop was not India but Jakarta in Indonesia where they lost no time in establishing their monopoly over the spice trade. India was significant only insofar as it constituted part of the great Asian trade route that the Dutch had developed and that cut through Ceylon and Cape Town.

Even though in 1602, when the Dutch East India Company was chartered, the Dutch harboured no military ambitions about India, around 1605, a fleet of thirty-eight ships dispatched by the Dutch East India Company inflicted a crushing defeat on Portuguese ships off Johore and the Dutch wrested the fortress at Ambiona from Portuguese control. The unstoppable Dutch then went on to seize secret Portuguese maps and oceanic charts detailing the trade routes with India. These were soon to serve as guides to the eastern waters.

¤ Arrival of English

The English entered the East Indies almost as the same time as the Dutch. However, the English were quick to realise that the Dutch were unwilling to share their turf in the East Indies with them. The tenacity with which the Dutch refused to relent on the East Indies forced the British to turn to India. Spices in India abounded in the south but the trade monopoly of the local rulers and other Europeans had to be broken.

The British East India Company was established by the Royal Charter in 1600, and in course of time, the Protestant Dutch and English would embark upon the common project of eroding Catholic Spain and Portugal’s trade monopoly in the Indian Ocean.

It is interesting to note, however, that although the Dutch had their ‘factories’ in Cochin, Nagapatam and even up in Agra, they did not give the idea of military expansion in India much thought. The spice trade was rewarding and they were quite content with just that.

¤ French Also Making Forays Into India

The Dutch and the English were not the only nations to take an interest in India in those days.The seventeenth century also saw the French making forays into India. While the success stories of the Dutch and the British East India Companies were a motivating factor, the reasons for setting up the French East India Company were not mercantile.

The initial wave brought along men of letters, explorers, adventurers, missionaries et al. Jean Baptiste Tavernier and François Bernier’s vivid accounts of the Mughal kingdom and beyond went a long way in moulding Europe’s impressions about this distant, exotic and opulent land.

The French set up their first trading post in 1666 at Surat. The Sultan of Golconda then allowed them to set up another trading post in Masulipatam on the Coromandel Coast in 1669. In 1670, the Sultan gave the French land in Pondicherry. In the next two decades, the French obtained trading concessions in Bengal and Chandernagore, and established a post at Mahe on the Malabar coast of southwest India.

But the French East India Company did not turn out to be as prosperous as the Dutch and the British East India Companies.
Meanwhile, the British had made some important moves.

¤ British Developed Strong Relations With Mughals

Sir Thomas Roe arrived at the Mughal Emperor Jahangir’s court as the envoy of King James I of England, and stayed in India from 1614-1618. While William Hawkins had already initiated successful diplomatic relations with the Mughal court, Roe consolidated them further, gaining in the process not only friends in the Mughal court but also the Emperor’s permission to establish a British East India Company trading post at Surat. Roe’s diplomacy with the Mughals paid off so well that by 1618, the East India Company became their unspoken naval aide.

Henceforth the commercial rise of the British in India was meteoric. By 1661, Bombay was given to Charles II of England as dowry when he married Catherine of Braganza. Bombay was then dutifully passed on to the British East India Company. By 1708, around the dawn of the Modern Indian Era, the British found themselves quite comfortably placed in India, at least commercially.

and Aurangzeb’s exit from Indian History in 1707 and its aftermath were to eventually throw up the new keepers of India’s destiny – the British.

¤ The Decline of Mughal Court

The decline of the Mughal empire after Aurangzeb’s death was shockingly swift. (See Medieval Indian History). Power and glory bowed out to disarray and disgrace The state treasury ran dry. It was clearly an oft repeated moment in History when devoid of will, a dynasty lingered on, waiting to be saved or damned.

¤ The Advent of Nadir Shah

A series of disastrous invasions against Delhi finally broke its spirit. The first of these was led by the famous Persian king, Nadir Shah in 1739. At the time, the court in Delhi was fending off the Maratha offensive.
One of the finest ministers of the Mughal court , Nizam-ul-Mulk met Nadir when the latter arrived near Delhi and talked him out of his initial idea of sacking Delhi by offering him Rs 50,00,000. The matter would have been settled had not one of Nizam’s rival generals at court convinced Nadir Shah that the latter was being short-changed. Delhi’s legendary wealth could not be relinquished for so paltry a sum.

Soon Nadir Shah marched over to Delhi in time to have a khutba read in his name. Unfortunately, it was around the same time that a rumour about Nadir Shah’s death spread in Delhi. Not only was this news greeted with jubilation by the inhabitants of Delhi, some of them went so far as to actually attack a few Iranian soldiers. No one could have forseen the consequences.

On March 11, 1739 an order was issued by Nadir Shah. Delhi witnessed yet another blood bath. Chandni Chowk, the fruit market, the Dariba bazaar and the buildings around the Jama Masjid were burnt to cinders. Each and every inhabitant of the area was killed in retaliation. People living around the area still point at the Khooni Darwaza (Gateway of Slaughter) in the old city and talk of the massacre as though it had taken place only the previous day. The royal treasury was sacked and its contents seized. When Nadir Shah left Delhi after 57 days, he also took along with him the fabulous Peacock Throne of the Mughals and the last remnants of the Mughal pride.

Lead by Ahmad Shah Abdali, an ex-general in Nadir Shah’s army, the Afghans were the next raiders of Delhi. Abdali led as many as seven invasions into India between 1748-1767.

In January 1757, Abdali captured Delhi. What followed was a carnage of the Nadir Shah vintage. After pillaging Delhi, the Afghans overran most of Northern India. It is said that after the sack of Mathura, Brindaban and Gokul, for `seven days the waters of the Jamuna flowed a blood-red colour.’

An outbreak of cholera in Abdali’s army forced him to withdraw, though not before making the Delhi court cough up around 120,000,000 rupees. He also demanded, and got Kashmir, Lahore, Sirhind and Multan. This, unfortunately, was not the last time that Abdali was to invade India.
and a retiring Delhi court would leave it to the Marathas to counter Abdali’s next invasion. Unable to resist the immense riches of Delhi, Abdali stormed the city again. On January 13, 1761, he took on the Maratha confederation, and humbled the Marathas in the third and final battle of Panipat, rooting out the possiblity of Maratha dominion over North India, at least for the next decade.

Abdali returned in 1764, driven once again by his lust not so much for power as for gold. His sixth invasion had the Sikhs, who had by then carved out a kingdom for themselves under the famous Maharaja Ranjit Singh, up in arms. The determined Sikhs, who never allowed the Marathas to establish themselves up north, now put up a stiff resistance. When Abdali invaded India for the last time in 1767, he met his comeuppance at the hands of the Sikhs who then took Lahore and Central Punjab. However the areas extending from Peshawar and beyond remained with Abdali.

¤ The Slow Rise of British

Against this troubled backdrop, the British rise to power was slow, but remarkably steady. Slow because the British had an uphill task to accomplish; first there were the French to deal with. The commercial rivalry amongst the British and the French had its roots in the prevailing political situation in Europe.
As long as the French carried on business in a small way in India, the British left them to themselves. But between 1720 and 1740, the French East India Company’s trade with India recorded almost a ten-fold growth to measure upto half the volume of that the British East India Company at the time. The stakes were too high for either to ignore – especially since the British East India Company generated more than ten percent of England’s revenue.

¤ The Rise of Carnatic War

This was the time when the War of Austrian Succession (1740-48) had broken out in Europe, following Fredrick the Great of Prussia’s seizure of Silesia in 1740. The French and British found themselves in opposing camps in this war. Later, during the Seven Years War (1756-63), both were at loggerheads with each other once again, supporting rival camps. These two European wars were to have an immediate bearing on India’s political destiny.

Between 1746-48, the French and English finally came to blows in the first Carnatic War (1746-48) in the Deccan. Two more of these wars sealed the fate of the French East India Company in India.

The first Carnatic War was perhaps a fallout of the Austrian War of Succession. The fight was over Madras and though the French had captured it, it was given back to the English as part of the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle of 1748. In the meanwhile the British and French had got their fleets upto the Indian mainland – an important development as the balance of power within the mainland was fast slanting in favour of the Europeans. and Dupleix, the French governor of the time, decided to turn the tide in France’s favour.

A shrewd and resourceful character with great diplomatic skills and a fine understanding of local politics, Dupleix was nevertheless difficult to work with because of his nervous temperament and inadequate military knowledge.

The opportunity Dupleix was waiting for came his way in 1748 when the Nawab of Arcot (in present Tamil Nadu) died leaving behind the question of succession unresolved. Dupleix succeeded in having a Nizam of his choice, Chanda Sahib enthroned. The new Nizam was supported by the old Nawab’s grandson, Muzzafar Jung, and backed by French troops under the able command of de Bussy. The idea was to close in on Madras by surrounding it with French territory.

Everything would have gone off as planned but for Robert Clive who arrived in Madras as a clerk and proved himself to be a brilliant strategist. He laid the seige of Arcot in 1751 with a mere 210 men, turning Dupleix’s dream into a nightmare. Chanda Sahib was killed and a British nominee was placed on the throne of Arcot. Recalled to France in 1754, Dupleix retired in ignominy.

Dupleix was succeeded by Godeheu, who sued for peace with the British. Both the French and the British agreed not to interfere in India’s internal matters and went back to their old positions. The French also agreed to give up everything they had taken so far. Godeheu was denounced for having ‘signed the ruin of the country and the dishonour of the nation’, but the damage was done. The British had emerged much stronger after the second Carnatic War.

The third and final phase of this Anglo-French war for supremacy was precipitated by the Seven Years War in the shape of the third Carnatic War (1756-63). However, despite very fine French generals like de Bussy and Lally, the British inflicted a crushing defeat on the French who ended up losing practically everything they had in India.

The dream of the ‘dominion de l’empire de la France’ in India was over. and thanks to their naval supremacy, greater resources and steadier support from Europe, the British had emerged as the clear winners.

¤ British Rose To Power In India

Thereafter, the British steadily rose to power in India, at least till the Uprising of 1857.

The Uprising was a culmination of a number of factors. People were growing increasingly resentful of Britain’s political and cultural motives in India. But the mandatory use of Enfield Rifles, and cartridges greased with animal tallow – pig or cow – that were to be readied by mouth by practising Hindus and Muslims in the Sepoy Army of Indian troops, precipitated the event.

There is enough evidence to support the fact that the Uprising had been planned for months before the actual outbreak. However, revolutionaries failed to spread the word about it beyond Central India and Delhi, and the Uprising did not quite unfold as planned. Had it gone according to schedule, the Uprising would have broken out in many areas simultaneously and been difficult for the British to contain. However, as things turned out, trouble erupted sporadically in various places in May 1857 and there was little, if any, coordination between the outbreaks. For the British, quelling such a rebellion was hardly intimidating.

¤ The Revolt of 1857

Stories about the British and Indian confrontation in Delhi in 1857 abound. Tales of valour and bravery about both sides alternate with accounts of unimaginable horror and destruction.

The poet-Mughal in Delhi, Bahadur Shah Zafar, Tatia Tope of Gwalior (Gwalior itself did not rebel, Tope was merely a general), the Rani of Jhansi too joined in the rebellion as they had their own interests to protect. None of them would actually have rebelled had the British not rethought the `compensation’ that these rulers were being paid in exchange for a share in the governance.

The people of Delhi, Lucknow, Gwalior and the rest of India, however, had nothing to gain, at least not personally. Their war was not for a private kingdom; they were fighting for freedom.

Scholars and historians who have revisited the event have tried to define the Uprising in terms that were at times limiting or expansive – a simple Mutiny, India’s first National War of Independence, a Princely plot, to name few. In any case, it would be difficult to package the event in a single neat definition.

Following the Uprising, the British Crown in Parliament formally took over the responsibility of ruling India from the British East India Company.

What was happening in the Indian society all this while was difficult to overlook. A cultural revolution had been taking place even before the Uprising of 1857. Sati was banned, the Arya Samaj was a new religious alternative, education for women was encouraged and a whole new breed of intellectuals – mostly from Bengal – were making their presence felt. This new breed of Indians was a power to reckon with.

After the Uprising, India was poised at the dawn of a new era of political awareness.

¤ Indian National Congress Came Into Being

In December 1885, despite the Governor General of India, Lord Dufferin’s reluctance to endorse the idea, Allan Octavian Hume formed the Indian National Union (which would soon be renamed Indian National Congress), alongwith seventy-two learned Indian delegates hailing from different parts of the country. The Indian National Congress’ first meeting took place in Bombay in 1885, and was presided over by W C Bonnerjee.

In its early phase, referred to as the phase of the Moderates (1885-1905), the Congress pledged loyalty to the British. The moderates were a class of elite erudite men who were into philosophy and intellectual discussions; the much more popular peoples’ leaders were to follow. One of the most prominent leaders, Dadabhai Naoroji, wrote extensively to highlight the drain of wealth from India to Britain.

The Congress was soon to enter a turbulent phase, and in 1907, during the session at Surat, there was an open split in the party.  The moderates led by Gopal Krishna Gokhale and Pherozeshah Mehta and those that the British qualified as extremists headed by Bal Gangadhar Tilak, parted ways. The Congress would regain its vitality only years later (1919-1934) under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi.

In 1905, Lord Curzon’s brainchild, the partition of Bengal was implemented. The decision evoked sharp reactions from all quarters of India. The day on which the partition came into effect was observed as a day of mourning and fasting throughout Bengal. Rabindranath Tagore, the famous Nobel-laureate and writer, passionately spoke out against it. This was the time when the Swadeshi movement was first launched; Indians participated in auto-da-fés of foreign goods and turned to indigenously manufactured articles. Lots of young leaders from Bengal took up the task of educating people. On August 15, 1906, a National Council of Education was set up under the educationist Aurobindo Ghose.

The government came down heavily on the agitators, disrupting meetings, insulting leaders and beating up peaceful protestors. In 1907, Lala Lajpat Rai and Sardar Ajit Singh were deported from the Punjab. In 1908, Bal Gangadhar Tilak was arrested and sentenced to six years of prison. Aurobindo Ghose was arrested, prosecuted and although acquitted, he chose to retire to Pondicherry.

The agitation against the partition of Bengal (although the partition was revoked in 1911) ushered in the age of Indian nationalism. It was a question of time before this nationalistic fervour settled down to the more concrete issue of how India was to cast aside the British yoke.

¤ Indian National Movement Continues

While Great Britain was entangled in World War I, India’s national movement, despite being at a nascent stage, continued to throw up surprises. In December 1915, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, the first nationalist leader with a deep understanding of India’s grassroots, and a considerable following, voiced the idea of Home Rule (`swadeshi’, was a word the British were wary of). It was for the first time that someone had alluded to Home Rule being the goal of the Indian National Movement. On April 28, 1916, the Home Rule League was founded, with its headquarters in Poona (Pune). Tilak went on a whirlwind tour of the country, appealing to everybody to unite under the banner of Home Rule League. Annie Besant who subscribed to the cause herself assisted him in this task.

The implications of the Home Rule movement were clear to all now. The independence of India was the goal of the Indian national movement. But while the idea of independence was swiftly gaining ground, for the most part, the bougeoisie was still unsure about whether it needed to jump into the fray or hold itself at bay. Meanwhile the Crown rule decided to tighten the clamps. Laws were formulated to prevent agitations, undesirable elements were banned from entering India, propaganda came under government scrutiny – the British had reason to be nervous.

¤ Gandhiji

and then, as Jawaharlal Nehru would later say, Gandhi came.

He was not anyone’s idea of a charismatic leader. Just a short, thin, shrivelled man, with what Sarojini Naidu called `Mickey Mouse ears’ and a twinkle in his eyes. He talked of ahimsa, or non-violence and ahimsa would finally disarm the British.

When Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi finally returned to India from South Africa at the age of 46, his arrival was preceded by his formidable reputation as a political leader. Moments after having docked at Bombay, he was asked to lead the National Movement.

Gandhi, however, declined, opting to get to know India thoroughly. The first causes he chose to associate with were minor local affairs, and the nationalist leaders of the time did not know what to make of this almost too-mild, too-moral and too-impractical maverick.

During 1917-18, with revolutionary conspiracies being on the rise within the country, the British grew progressively uneasy. To counter these, Justice S A T  Rowlatt proposed the Rowlatt Acts. Among other things, this act empowered the government with special wartime controls that included the right to try political cases without a jury, and gave the provincial governments along with the centre, the power to imprison without trial. Gandhi, in his typical style, said that the repressive Rowlatt Acts raised issues of trust and self-respect, and hence needed be met with a moral response in the form of a hartal, or a protest that entailed striking work on April 8, 1919.

¤ The Massacre At Jallianwala Bagh

The flashpoint came in Punjab. On April 12, 1919, General R E H  Dyer who had taken over the troops in Punjab the day before, prohibited all meetings and gatherings. So when a group of unarmed people congregated at the Jallianwala Bagh, a walled park with only a single narrow entrance, on April 13, 1919 to celebrate the Sikh festival of Baisakhi. What followed was to blight the pages of Indian History and its peoples’ minds for a very long time to come. A peaceful congregation had been transformed into an unmitigated blood bath.

Later, during the court martial, General Dyer coldly observed that he had fired only 1600 rounds of ammunition on the crowd as that was all he had. He added that he would have fired more had he so deemed fit.

The brutality of the Jallianwallah Bagh massacre shocked the country. It also shook the moderates out of their stupour and brought Gandhi out in the open.

¤ Congress Launched Non-Cooperation Movement

In 1920, under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi, the Indian National Congress launched the first movement of protest – the Non-Cooperation Movement. It involved surrendering all titles, honorary offices and nominated posts in local bodies. Government functions and darbars were to be boycotted. Parents were requested to withdraw their children from government schools and colleges. Indians stayed way from the British courts and army, and were to stand for elections to government and legislative bodies. Ahimsa or non-violence was to be observed strictly.

The magnitude of the Non Cooperation Movement amazed every political leader in India. Gandhi’s approach was not so meek after all. The idea appealed immensely to popular imagination and suddenly, in a single sweep, the Non-Cooperation Movement had touched every man on the street. People came out in droves to support Gandhi and his movement.

The government machinery did not actually break down, but came under visible strain. Unfortunately, at a time when the movement was showing signs of success, in Chauri Chaura, a mob of 3000 people killed 25 policemen and one officer. Similar incidents had taken place earlier on November 17, 1921, in Bombay and on January 13, 1922, in Madras. On February 7, Gandhi suspended the movement. He was arrested on March 13, 1922. Suddenly, the future of swaraj, or self-rule within a year seemed uncertain.

Gandhi came under fire from several quarters for disassociating himself from the Non-Cooperation Movement. The man of the masses took the masses along when he made his exit. and this was not to be the only time when differences of opinion cropped up in the Congress about Gandhi’s actions. and each time, in the end, people invariably gave in to the Mahatma. Gandhi had won over the heart of an entire nation.

In 1927 the British government set up a committee headed by Sir John Simon to review the state of affairs in India. However, the committee that came to be known as the Simon Commission did not include even a single Indian. The Congress took umbrage to the omission.

At this time, young radicals like Jawaharlal Nehru and Subhash Chandra Bose were insisting on making total independence the goal of the Congress. At midnight, on December 31, 1929, Jawaharlal Nehru unfurled the Tricolor on the banks of the river Ravi in Punjab and the Congress called for purna swaraj, or complete Independence. January 26, 1930, was declared as Independence Day. From February 14 to 16, 1930, the Congress Working Committee met at Gandhi’s famous ashram in Sabarmati and requested him to launch the Civil Disobedience Movement ‘at a time and place of his choice.’

On February 27, the plan for the agitation was made public. The entire nation was in ferment. Everyone, including the British, was curious to see what the Mahatma would do next.

On March 12, 1930, accompanied by 78 colleagues of the Sabarmati Ashram, Mahatma Gandhi embarked on a 60-mile march to the sea coast of Dandi. He intended to defy the new salt taxes that the government had levied and that would directly impact each and every peasant. To begin with, the government thought it better to ignore the event. However, soon the entire country was abuzz with hartals, protests, agitations, processions. The rising tide of discontent had to be checked. Gandhi was arrested on May 5, 1930. Abbas Tyabji took the relay to lead the movement. When Tyabji was arrested, Sarojini Naidu, the nightingale of India, replaced him.

All over India, the mood was upbeat, the atmosphere tense and the people on the streets. Louis Fischer wrote about the Civil Disobedience: “The British beat the Indians with batons and rifle butts. The Indians neither cringed nor complained nor retreated. That made England powerless and India invincible.”

¤ First Round Table Conference

When the first Round Table Conference was held in London from November 12, 1930 to January 19, 1931, not a single member of the Congress attended it. The British now appealed to the Congress to work with them. Lord Irwin also declared that Mahatma Gandhi and the other members of the Congress Working Committee would soon be freed to consider the matter ‘freely and fearlessly.’

The Mahatma and Lord Irwin finally met. The result was the Gandhi-Irwin pact. Amongst other things, the Civil Disobedience Movement was withdrawn under the pact, and a second Round Table Conference with Congress participation was agreed upon. This peace did not last long. Gandhi attended the Second Round Table conference in London in 1931 as the sole representative of the Congress. He demanded control of foreign affairs and defence, and the matter of minorities, with little help from Muhammad Ali Jinnah, His Highness the Aga Khan and Dr Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, ended in a complete deadlock. Gandhi returned to India on December 28, 1931 empty-handed.

By May 1934, the Civil Disobedience Movement had been completely withdrawn.

During World War II, the Congress decided that India should co-operate with Britain on the understanding that complete independence would be granted to India after that. The British, however were unwilling to discuss the issue of independence during wartime. This had the members of the Congress wondering about the intentions of the government. Meanwhile, the divide between Jinnah’s Muslim League and the Congress’ aims and demands had grown sharper. In early 1940, Jinnah declared Pakistan as the goal of the League.

After the fall of France in 1940, Gandhi declared, “We do not seek independence out of Britain’s ruin.” The British reply to this was an offer to discuss an Indian constituent assembly, as well as Dominion status `after the war’. The offer was spurned. This resulted in yet status would be another deadlock not to be resolved till 1947.

¤ The Launching of Quit India movement

Gandhi with his usual innovative skill now had the country and Congress rallying behind him. The moment had arrived to launch the Quit India movement. The unnerving part was that the launch of another Civil Disobedience Movement could coincide with the Japanese advances from the far-east towards India. “After all,” Gandhi said, “this is open rebellion.” The country was willing to court risks for the freedom that was to be won.

The movement was launched on August 8, 1942 in Bombay. Gandhi declared: “I want freedom immediately, this very night, before dawn, if it can be had. You may take it from me that I am not going to strike a bargain with the Viceroy for ministers and the like… Here is the mantra, a short one, that I give you… Do or die. We shall either free India or die in the attempt.”

From 1942 onwards it was quite clear that the countdown to an independent India had begun.

¤ Arrival of Lord Mountbatten

In 1946, Lord Mountbatten arrived in Delhi amid a buzz of political activity. After World War II, the British seemed keen to wash their hands off India. For their part, the Indians were not loathe to such an idea.

However, there were too many emotional ties – the British and the Indians went too far back together for the British to just pack up and leave. Mountbatten was entrusted with the responsibility of transferring power to the Indians, safeguarding British interests and prestige for future interaction with independent India and Pakistan. and in the bargain, if Partition was inevitable, the nations would have to live with the realisation and the consequences

¤ Partition of India

It was one of the worst movements of people in recent history after that of the Jews in the World War II. A nation was dismembered. On August 15, 1947 – India kept her ‘tryst with destiny’. Midnight bore her the precious gift of freedom. Following an announcement on August 17, 1947 Pakistan became the other independent state.

Gandhi, the father of the nation, did not join in the celebrations that followed. He was elsewhere working in riot torn areas, praying for peace. For him independence was tinged with sadness and disappointment. He was ready to withdraw from active politics.

Accusations of siding with the Muslims and giving Pakistan away too easily, dogged Gandhi since the day the state of Pakistan was declared. On January 30, 1948, a Hindu fundamentalist called Nathu Ram Godse shot the Mahatma. India lost the man who, alongwith so many others, had taught it to dream of independence, and to throw a bridge between that dream and reality. and on August 15, 1947, Indians had walked across that bridge.
