BABA RAMDEV vs. Congress:Black Money

Baba is once again in the controversy due to his political ambitions. Tv reports states he is worth 1100 crores. Baba says there is not a single penny or an inch of a land on his name. All these money he has are white money. Agreed, but can he prove it.

            A white money is that money which is legally earned and on such money every tax specified according to the laws are paid. Can he prove this? probably not. So he is giving political answers. One more example, he was in Nagaland and while addressing the people of Nagaland he told that he loves Nagaland the most. So now he is really acting like  a political candidate.

He is doing good work in the field of Yoga and a Baba can also become PM of our nation, no objection to that. but what about the people who are surrounding Ramdev Baba, no guarantee . Look at the history, all those congressmen following Gandhi and Patel and Nehru were honest in their intentions at first. But later on when they acquired power they became corrupt. ” The power corrupts and the absolute power corrupts absolutely”.

         I think all religious donations must be taxed. Or 10% of all riligious donations must go to PM’s Fund and that money should be utilized for children’s welfare.

સત્યની પળોજળ : મતમતાંતરો (The ultimate truth)

પુરાણોમાં, વેદોમાં, ગીતાજીમાં, કથાઓમાં, સંત-મહાત્માઓના વક્તવ્યોમાં, ધર્મગુરુઓના ઉપદેસોમાં અનેક ધર્મોના પાયામાં “ સત્ય” વિષે કહેવામા કે સમજાવવામાં આવ્યું છે. ઘણા તત્વચિંતકોએ વળી બીજી રીતે સત્યને સજાવવાની કોશિસ કરીછે. શું છે આ સત્ય ? ખરેખર તેની આટલી બધી વ્યાખ્યાઓ છે ? કે પછી તે એક્જ હોવા છતાં દરેક ની દ્રસ્તીએ જુદું દેખાય છે. જેમકે ચાર આંધળા અને હાથીની વાર્તા જેવુ. સામાન્ય માણસની સમજમાં શું તે આવી શકે કે નહીં. સત્ય શું દરેક માટે અલગ અલગ છે. સત્ય શું ઍક જ છે , પરમ સત્ય એટલેકે અલ્ટિમેટ તૃથ શું અને કેટલા છે ? જેટલો પ્રેમ શબ્દ વિષે ગૂંચવાડો છે, તેનાથી પણ વધુ મતમતાંતરો સત્યને લઈને રોજેરોજ બહાર પડે છે. ઘણા કહે છે સત્ય સમય ની સાથે બદલાતું રહે છે. તો બીજી બાજુ એવો પણ મત છે કે સત્ય એક છે પણ અમો માનીએ તે. જો આમજ હોય તો ઘણા સત્યો થઈ ગયા. આમ હિન્દુ, મુસલમાન, ખ્રિસ્તી અને બૌદ્ધ ના સત્યો અલગ અલગ અસ્તિત્વ માં આવ્યા. પછી શરૂ થયા ધર્મો, સંપ્રદાયો અને પંથો વચ્ચે ના જગડાઓ, ધર્મ પરિવર્તનની પ્રવૃતિ. શું દરેક માણસે પોતે સત્ય ને સમજવાની કોશિસ કરી છે. કે પછી સગવડીઓ ધર્મ સાચવીને ઘાંચીના બળદની માફક ગોળ ગોળ ફરીને જીવન ગુજારી નાખે છે.  તો ચાલો નજર કરીએ જુદી જુદી માન્યતાઓ ઉપર.

સત્યમ શિવમ સુંદરમ : ઈશ્વર સત્ય છે, સત્ય જ સુંદર છે. આમ  ઈશ્વરને સત્ય માનીને ચાલો એની શોધમાં, મળી જાય તો કઈક માંગી લઈએ , કઈ નહીં આપે તો જીવીને શું કામ છે ? મોક્ષ માંગી લઈ શું. કદાચ પૂછી લઈશું દુનિયા બનાવી પણ આવી બનાવાય ભલા માણસ, આટલા બધા દુખ, દર્દ. ખેર, બીજાને જવાદે મારૂ બધુ સરખુ કરી નાખ એટલે “મૌજા હી મૌજા.” આવા પંચાણું ટકા લોકો મંદિરના પગથિયાં થી આગળ વધતાં નથી . બીજા ત્રણ ટકા લોકો કોઈ ને કોઈ સાધૂ કે ગુરુ પકડીને કોઈ પંથમાં ભળી જાય છે. બાકીના બે ટકા લોકો સત્ય=ઈશ્વરની શોધમાં નીકળી પડેછે. સંસાર ત્યાગી સાધુ જીવન ગાળસે, આશ્રમો બનાવી નાખસે . એક પગ ઉપર ઊભા રહેશે, ઉપવાસો કરશે, શરીરનું દમન  કરશે, નિત્યાનંદ બનીને લીલાઓ કરશે. ટૂંકમાં સત્યને પણ  ચૂંથી નાખી પોતે પણ ચુંથાય જશે. આવા લોકોને શું સત્ય લાધે છે. હા, હજાર કે બે હજાર વરસે એકાદ બુદ્ધ , મહાવીર, રામકૃષ્ણ પરમહંસ કે મોહમદ પયગંબર સાહેબ જેવાને સાચું સત્ય મળે છે ખરું. તેઓએ  છાતી ઠોકીને દુનિયાને આ વાત કરી કે અમને સત્ય મળી ગયું. તેમણે  પણ પોતાના શિષ્યોને આ સત્ય નો અહેસાસ કરાવવા  કે તેની નજીક લઈ જવાનો પ્રયત્ન કર્યો. સફળતાની ટકાવારી નીકળી શકે તેમ નથી પણ અલગ અલગ ધર્મો રચાઇ  ગયા અનેક ગૂંચવાડા પેદા થયા. આમ જનતા હજુ તેઓનું જાણેલું સત્ય સમજી નથી સકતી . તેનું એક જોરદાર સત્ય છે કે તમારો અનુભવ તે તમારો પોતાનો છે તેનો અહેસાસ બીજાને ન કરાવી શકો. આમ પરમ સત્યની પ્રાપ્તિ તો દૂર રહી પણ જન્મ અને મરણ ના ચક્કરમાં આ પૃથ્વી ઉપરના સત્ય નો અનુભવ કરતાં જાય છે. સંતોની દ્રષ્ટિએ આ જન્મ મરણ ના ફેરામાંથી કાયમી મુક્તિ એટલે કે મોક્ષ,  તેજ સાચું સત્ય છે. સામાન્ય માણસ સરખી રીતે આ મોંઘવારીમાં જીવી નથી શકતો તેને આ મોક્ષની શું પડી કે દરકાર હોય. સભાઓમાં, પ્રવચનો સાંભળવા જસે જરૂર અને એક બે કલાક મુંડી હલાવી ના, ગુરુજીની વાત તો સાચી છે એમ બોલતો બોલતો ઘરે આવીને ટીવી સામે કોઈ સિરિયલ ચાલુ કરીને બેસી જસે. તો આ થઈ નવાઈ પમાડે તેવી બીજી રિયાલીટી , નવું જ સત્ય. પણ જાણવા જેવુ ખરું.

Truth changes with time. એટલેકે સમના પ્રવાહો સાથે સત્ય બદલતું હોય છે. કઈ બાબતો તરફ ઈશારો છે ? દા . ત. તમે નદીમાં ડૂબકી મારી , પછી ફરીવાર ડૂબકી મારી , તમને એમ થસે કે હું એકજ નદી માં ડૂબકીઓ મારી રહયો છુ . પરંતુ હકીકત જુદીજ છે. બીજીવારની ડૂબકી મારી ત્યા સુધીમાં તો તે જગ્યાએ બીજું પાણી આવી ગયું હતું. શરીરમાં પણ એમજ છે. તમે એક્જ છો પણ હજારો, નહીં અબજો  કોષો સમયાંતરે નાશ પામી નવા કોષો બને છે. તેથી તમે પણ ઓરિજનલ નથી રહેતા. અરે નિયમો , કાનુનો, રીતિરિવાજો, સભ્યતાઓ, સિંધાતોં પણ સમયના પ્રવાહોમાં નદીના પાણીની માફક બદલતા રહે છે. રોજેરોજ નવી ટેક્નોલૉજી શોધાય છે. નવું સત્ય રોજ સામે આવેછે. પહેલાં પૃથ્વીવાસીઓ એમ માનતા હતા કે પૃથ્વીની આજુબાજુ સૂર્ય ફરેછે. અત્યારે જૂની માન્યતા રદ થઈ ગઈ , તેથી હવે તે બની ગયું અસત્ય .જેમકે હાલના સમયમાં માં-બાપને વૃધાશ્રમ માં મરવા ધકેલી દેવા તે નવો રિવાજ આજનું સત્ય બનતો જાય છે. ક્યાક તાનાશાહી, ક્યાક લોકશાહી, તો વળી ક્યાક કોમ્યુનિસમ રાજકીય સત્ય છે. મોંઘવારી એ આજનું વરવું સત્ય છે. સરકારે પણ સ્વીકારીને હાથ ઊંચા કરી લીધા છે. માણસ પણ એક્જ દિવસમાં પત્ની,  પ્રેમિકા, બોસ, ગુરુ  અને બાળકોની આગળ જુદું જુદું વર્તન કરતો હોય છે. આ તેનું સત્ય છે.   

અધ્યાત્મિક રીતે જોઈએતો ઉપર ઉપરથી બધાજ કહેસે કે ભગવાન એક્જ છે. પણ હકીકતે મનમાં શું વિચા રેછે. મનમાં એમજ માને છે કે અમારા ભગવાન જુદા, સારા અને સર્વોતમ છે. તેમાય તે એક્જ ભગવાનના નેજા હેઠળ અનેકો સંપ્રદાયો, પંથો.  એક જ સત્યના આટલા બધા વિભાગ. પોતાનું સત્ય સાચુ  અન્યોનુ ખોટું. ભગવાનમાં કોઈને  રસ નથી મંદિર સુધીનીજ પહોચ છે.   અધ્યાત્મિકતા અને મંદિર બે અલગ અલગ બાબતો છે. જે રોટલી તમને પોષણ આપી સકતી હોય તે બીજાને પણ પાચન શક્તિ અનુસાર થોડુઘણું તો પોષણ આપીજ શકસે . પણ માણસ ને વિવાદો કરવાની ટેવ પડી ગઈ છે. કારણકે દરેકની સત્યની પરિભાષા જુદી છે. આમાં જીવન આખું વેડફી નાખે છે.

બાઈબલમાં જિસસે કહયુછે “ I am the way, the truth, and life” (હુજ રસ્તોછું , સત્ય છું અને જીવન છું. )

શ્રી કૃષ્ણ ગીતામાં કહેછે “ અથવા , હે અર્જુન તારે આ બધું જાણવાની શી જરૂર છે. મારા એક અંશ માત્રથી સમસ્ત જગતને ધારણ કરુછું ને તેમાં હું વ્યાપીને રહેલોછું . 10.42

ઉપરનો શ્લોક બધાજ માની લે છે, અને પોતેજ ડિકલેર કરસે કે ભગવાને કહ્યું તે સાચું  છે. અને ભગવાન કણે કણ માં વિરાજમાન છે. પતિ ગયું , વાત ફિનિશ. કાશ જો એમ હોતતો અહીથી આગળ વધવાની જરૂર ન પડત. અહિયાં લોકો સ્મશાનવૈરાગ્ય જેવુ વર્તન કરતાં માલૂમ પડે છે. સ્મશાનમાં જ્યારે કોઈને મૂકવા જાય છે, બસ ત્યાતો બહુ ડાહી ડાહી વાતો કરસે : ભાઈ જીવન – મરણ નું ચક્કર ચાલ્યા કરેછે. આત્માતો મરતો નથી., શું કામ હાય, વોય કરવી , પણ આ વૈરાગ્ય સ્મશાન સુધીનો જ હોય છે. ત્યાર બાદ નથી હોતો.

આતો થઈ બહુ ઊંચા લોકો ની ઊંચી પસંદ. ચાલો વાત કરીએ કોઈ ગરીબ, મજૂર કે ભિખારીની . તેનું સત્ય શું હોય શકે ? તે ઉપર વર્ણવી તેવી બધી વાતો થી અલિપ્ત છે. જાણે છે તો એટલુ જ કે દુનિયા બનાવનાર, જીવાડનાર અને મારનાર કોઈ ભગવાન હોય છે. અને માનતા બધા આખડી રાખો તો સહાય કરશે. તેને દુખ પડે એટલે સંભાળી લેવાનો. આમ ગરીબ, મજૂર કે ભિખારીનું સત્યતો છે, ભૂખ, રોજેરોજની સમસ્યાઓ,અને સમાજ માં પોતાનું અસ્તિત્વ ટકાવી રાખવાની મથામણ. તેને કોઈ ઊંચી વાતોમાં રસ નથી કે જેનાથી પેટની ભૂખ ન સંતોસાય. જીવનની હાડમારીઓજ એનું સત્ય છે. એટલેજ જે લોકોને કઈકને કઈક જોઈએછે તેને પરમ સત્ય સાથે કાઇજ લેવા દેવા નથી. તે પછી ભલે  ગરીબ, વેપારી, ભિખારી, કે મોટો  ઇન્ડસ્ટ્રીયાલિસ્ટ હોય તેનું મન તો હમેશા માંગતુ જ હોય છે.ગૌતમ બુદ્ધ હતા એક રાજાના રાજકુમાર, તેમણે ઐશ્વર્ય અનુભવ્યું હતું તેમાં પણ ઘણું ખૂટતું લાગ્યું એટલે અંતિમ સત્યની શોધમાં નીકળી પડ્યા.

કૃષ્ણે ગીતામાં કહ્યું છે. : અસતનું કદી અસ્તિત્વ હોતું નથી અને સત છે તેનું અસ્તિત્વ કદી મટતું નથી , તત્વદર્શીઓએ આ બંને બાબતોનો અંતિમ જાણ્યો છે.

મતલબ સત્ય અવિનાશી છે, અસત્ય હોતુજ નથી. હવે જો આમાં ન માનીએ તો તે અસત્ય સાબિત થાય છે. અને આ વાક્યને માની લઈએ તો એમ સાબિત થાય છે કે કોઈ પરમ શક્તિ કે જેને ઈશ્વર કહી શકાય તેણે વિશ્વનું સર્જન કર્યું અને તેને ચલાવવાના નિયમો પણ સાથે સાથે બનાવી નાખ્યા એટલે વારેઘડીએ સ્વિચ દબાવવા આવવાની તકલીફ લેવી ન પડે. પછી ભલેને દુનિયાના લોકો નિયમોમાં ફેરફાર કરાવી લાભ મેળવવા મારા મંદિરે પગથિયાં ઘસ્યા કરે. તિરુપતિ બાલાજી એ સૌથી રિચેસ્ટ ભગવાન છે. કુદરતના નિયમોમાં ફેરફાર કરાવવા ત્યાં કલાકો લાઇન માં ઊભા રહેવું પડે છે. મુકેશ અંબાણીએ ત્યાં ચાર કરોડનો ચેક આપ્યો હતો. ચાર આપસું તો દસ આપસે. મન હંમેસા માંગતુ રહેછે.

જો આખરી સત્ય ઇશ્વર હોય તો ચાલો પૂછી નાખીએ . તેમને કોણે બનાવ્યા ? કોઈ મોટા ભગવાને ? મને તો આ સવાલ થાય છે પણ સ્ટીફન હોકીન્સે પણ આજ સવાલ કર્યો છે તેમની બુકમાં ( The theory of everything, page no 123, second paragraph, last line.)

એક સત્ય એ પણ છે કે : કોઈપણ વસ્તુ પોતાની જાતે અસ્તિત્વમાં ન આવી શકે. બીજું જો સત્યનું અસ્તિત્વ હોય તો આપણે તેને શોધી શકવા જોઈએ. કર્મનો નિયમ બધાનેજ જોરદાર સત્ય લાગે છે. પણ આ નિયમ બીજા માટે છે. (એ. રાજા જેવા નેતાઓ માટે નથી.)

આમ બાહ્ય જગત અને આંતર જગતના સત્યોની પરિભાષા જુદી છે. દરેક મનુષ્યે પોતાનું સત્ય જાતેજ શોધવાનું છે. જેટલો નિખાલસ અને નિર્મળ બનશે તેટલો જ સત્યની નજીક પહોચશે. He who knows others is wise; he who knows himself is enlightened –Tao Teching (બીજાને જાણનાર બુદ્ધિશાળી છે પરંતુ પોતાની જાતને ઓળખનાર પરમ સત્યને પામેછે.)  

આથી સત્યનો અહેસાસ એજ પરમ સત્ય છે. ન થાય ત્યાં સુધી તેની જરૂર પણ નથી.

History and origin of Rajputs in Gujarat

Although the term Rajput only became common in the tenth century, a number of clans that later became known as Rajput rose to prominence in the 7th Century. The word Rajput literally means son of a king in the Sanskrit language. It was extended to cover any Hindu clan that ruled in west India. The regions that now form Gujarat have at various times been ruled by a number of dynnasties, all which from the 10th Century onwards claimed to Rajputs.

Several clans that rose to prominence in the 7th Century, such as the Parihar, Gohil, Dodiya, Chavda, Chauhan and Chavotake later came to be known as Rajput. The last major Rajput clan to settle in Gujarat were the Jadejas , who arrived from Sindh. In addition to being divided into clans, the Rajputs are divided into two categories, the Rajput proper and the Girasia, who are known as Darbar in Saurashtra and Rajput in Kutch. In addition, there are also various allied groups such as the BavanGol , Gujjar , Karadia , Nadoda, Jinkara , Purbiya, Maiya and Khant,and Vantia.

 Distribution:- The Rajput’s in theory are divided into thirty six clans, but in practice the number varies from region to region. In Gujarat, the main clans are the Bhati, Chauhan, Chavda, Chudasama, Dahima, Darad, Devda, Gohil, Rathod, Sindhav, Raizada, Rehvar, Padhiyar, Sanol, Jadeja, Jethwa, Parmar, Solanki, Vaghela, Vala, Vadher, and Zankant. The Rajputs are endogamous, with the clans being exogamous. There is no intermarriage between clans as the Sarvaiyya, Chudasama, Rana and Raizada as they all claim descent from a common ancestor.[5]

In terms of distribution, the Chauhan are found in Baroda, Bharuch, Banaskantha, and Panchmahal districts, the Chudasama& Darad are found in Kutch, Junagadh and Jamnagar districts, the Chavda are found in Bhavnagar and Mehsana districts, the Gohil are found in Bhavnagar, the Jadeja, who are the most numerous clan are found mainly in Kutch, Jamnagar, Rajkot and Banaskantha. The Parmar are one of the chief clans found among the Rajputs, and are found in north Gujarat, Bharuch, Kathiawar and Kutch and are divided into four sub-clans, the Barod, Johda, Rehvar and Rajparmars. Other clans include the Solanki in Kheda, Mehsana and Sabarkantha districts, the Rathore also on Sabarkantha, the Mahida in Bharuch and Baroda, the Devda in Banaskantha, the Padiyar and Sarvaiyya in Bhavnagar , the Vala in twelve villages in Rajkot District, the Bhati in Banaskantha and Sabarkantha, the Sisodia in Sabarkantha, and the Vaghela in Kutch, Kathiawar, Dholka, Sanand.[6]

 List of Major Clans

There are about 104 Rajput clans in Gujarat, which are as follows:   

Ada , Avera , Baleter , Barod , Bhati , Chavda , Chavad , Chochu , Chiod  Chauhan ,Chudasama,  Chundawat, Dabhi, Dahima , Dairja , Darad Devchand,  Devda, Dhandu, Dhal, Dor ,Dodiya, Duval  ,Ed Gaikwad,  Galecha  GhelotGohil , Golter,  Gori , Gujjar , Hadial  ,Harashi  , Hatha , Humad   Jadhav ,  JadejaJhala , Jiriya,  Jodha,  Joja,  Kaba,  Kachhotia, Kalam  Karadia , Kher , Khod,  Khula,  Kukan,  Lakan  , Mahidam,  Makwana,  Mal,  Masani , Mer , Mohal , Mori, Nadodora , Narvan, Padhar,  Padhiyar,  Palonia, Parmar,  Pesrau,  Purabia,  Raizada,  Rana,  Ranrathod , Rathore, Raval,   Ravar-Solanki,  Rehvar,   Revod,   Sanol,   Sarvaiya,  Sedhal,  Sisodia,  Sodha , Sodria,  Sojatria,  Solanki,  Songad,  Surcha,  Suvar,  Tank , Tantol  Thokiya,  Tuar,  Vadhel,  Vadvasia,  Vaghela,Vaish , Vaja,  Vala,  Vamla  Vanol,  Vantia,  Varam , Vejola , Vethia,  Vezania,  Virpuria-Solanki,  Udhawat,  Uma

Chapa dynasty in Gujarat state

The Chavda Kingdom or Chapa dynasty also known as Gujar Chapas was an ancient Kshatriya dynasty which ruled northern Gujarat from 746 AD to 942 AD.

it is stated in Bombay Gazetteer that Chavdas were Gurjars.[3] Historians such as Vincent Arthur Smith , Peter N. Stearns, William Leonard Langer also mentioned that Chapas or Chapotkatas were one of the ruling clans of the Gurjars.

History:- Historian Vincent Arthur Smith states in his book “White Hun‘ Coin of Vyaghramukha of the Chapa (Gurjara) Dynasty of Bhinmal” that Chapa, Cahuda, Chavda, Chavotaka and Chapotkata are identical. Mr. Jackson regards Chapa as being the original form, Chapotkata a sanskritized variant, meaning ‘strong bowman’. The chavda was a branch of the Gurjars who extended the power of the race in the south. However, others believe, that Chawuras of Saurashtra or Gujarat were neither of Solar or Lunar race and consequently, it is supposed they were Scythians. They must have established themselves in India at very remote period, for we find Gehlots inter-married with them, when they were rulers of Balabhi. The capital of Chawdas was at Deobander, near Somnath on west coast of Kathiawar.  They settled down in Gujarat and later Saurashtra. The first king of the Chawra Kingdom was Jayshikhari Chawra. Panchsar, a city in north Gujarat, was capital of chapa Gurjara dynasty at the time of Jayshikhari Chawra. He was assassinated even before his son Vanraj Chavda was born. Vanraj Chavda went on to be the most successful Chawra ruler, founding historical cities such as Anhilpur Patan and Champaner. There were five Chawra kings after Vanraj.The last king Samantsinh Chawra did not have any children so he adopted his nephew Mulraj Solanki who overthrew him in 942 and set up what came to be known as the Solanki dynasty.

The Chavda Rajputs first established kingdom at Anhilpur Patan (at present a district in northern Gujarat) in around 745 AD. Anhilpur Patan remained capital of Gujarat for many centuries. The Chavda Rajputs ruled lasted around 200 years at Patan. They gradually moved from Patan and established their kingdom at other locations like Mehsana, Mansa, and Varsoda. Varsoda was established by Thakur Surajmalji.

Rajputs in india

The main lineages

The Rajputs are divided into clans, each clan belonging to one of three basic lineages (vanshas or vamshas):

  1. The Suryavanshi lineage, claiming descent from Surya, the Hindu Sun god. In English it is known as the Solar Dynasty;
  2. The Chandravanshi lineage, or Lunar dynasty lineage claims descent from Chandra (the moon or Budh). The Chandravanshi lineage is known as the Lunar Dynasty in English;
    1. The Yaduvanshi lineage are a major sub-branch of the Chandravanshi lineage. Lord Krishna was born a Yaduvanshi.
    2. The Puruvanshi lineage are a major sub-branch of the Chandravanshi Rajputs. The Kauravs and Pandavs of the epic poem Mahabharata were Puruvanshis.
  3. The Agnivanshi lineage claims descent from Agni, the Hindu god of fire. Four main Rajput clans are considered to be Agnivanshi. They are Chauhans, Paramara, Solanki and Pratiharas.[2]

Clan organization

Maharana Pratapwas a Sisodia ruler

Each of these Vanshas or lineages is divided into several clans (kula), all of whom claim direct patrilineage from a remote but common male ancestor who supposedly belonged to that Vansha. Some of these 36 main clans are further subdivided into shakhas or “branches”, again based on the same principle of patrilineage.

Each shakha or basic sub-clan has its individual genealogical creed, describing the essential peculiarities, religious tenets, and original domicile of the clan. This creed is a touchstone of traditional affinities and provides all information governing the laws of intermarriage.

Gaur Rajputs (गौड़) The Suryavanshi rajputs of gaur are basically the descendants of the rajput ‘PALA DYNASTY’which once used to rule ancient bengal then known as gaur. Its capital was lakshmanabati named after the great pala king Lakshman pal under whose patronage the first literary work in bengali ‘Geet govindam’was composed by the great bengali poet JAYDEV.

Some old texts of the British raj refer to the PALA rajputs as Gour or Gaur rajputs . Government gazettes of the British era have references to Gaur Zamindars in Uttar Pradesh , Madhya Pradesh & Rajasthan.Some of the other grest pala rulers were RAM PAL,DEV PAL, VIJAy PAL,etc.

One of the surviving linages of this clan : PAWAYAN (Zamindari): Founded around 1705 by Raja Udai Singh, who was the son of Bhupat Singh, a leader of the ancient Gaur clan of Rajputs settled at Chandra and Katesar in Sitapur, U.P. He established Pawayan, the largest estate in the erstwhile Rohilkhand Area and the present District Shahjahanpur in U.P. Gaur Rajputs originated from Gaur Desh (country), in West Bengal. The Gaur Rajputs had dispersed to various parts of Northern and Central India after the onslaught of the Persian raider, Bhaktiar Khilji, around 1205.

There are approximately 71 subclans of the Kachwaha, including the Rajawat, Shekhawat, Sheobramhpota, Naruka, Nathawat, Khangarot, and Kumbhani. They claim descent from Kusha, the younger of the twin sons of Rama.

Minhas :-  Minhas Rajputs are Suryavanshis and claim descent from Rama a legendary king of Ayodhya. In Rajputana, their closest cousins are the Kachwaha and Bargujar Rajputs of Jaipur. They trace their ancestry to the Ikshvaku dynasty of Northern India (The same clan in which Lord Rama was born. He, therefore is the ‘kuldevta'(family deity) of the Hindu Minhas Rajputs). Specifically, they claim descent from Kusha younger of the twin sons of Rama, hero of the Ramayana, to whom patrilineal descent from Surya is in turn ascribed Minhas Rajputs are spread throughout Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir Region in India. Hindu Minhas Rajputs reside in the Indian states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Indian Punjab, Sikh Minhas Rajputs, mainly inhabit Punjab (India).

Punjab specially the area of Potohar and Azad jamu Kashmir is the origin of Pakhral Rajputs. Mirpur Azad jamu Kashmir and the Rawalpindi District mostly named as the area of potohar is very famous as the area of Pakhral Rajputs. Raja is mostly used as a title in Pakhral Rajputs which is derived from the word Rajput.

Pundir :- The Pundir (also spelled Pandeer, Pandir, Pundhir, Pundeer, Poondir or Poondeer) is a Suryavanshi branch of Rajputs. The word itself is derived from the Sanskrit word Purandara literally meaning “the destroyer of forts”. The Pundir Rajputs hold riyasat in Nahan, Garhwal, Nagaur and Saharanpur where their Kuldevis are situated. Their shakha is Koolwal and their Kuldevis are Shakumbhri Devi in Saharanpur and Rajasthan along with Punyakshini Devi in Garhwal with their gotra being Pulastya and Parashar. Most of the Pundirs are today based mainly around the North Indian states of Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab and Haryana. Elliot writes that in the Haridwar region of Uttar Pradesh, where they are most prominent today, over 1,440 villages are claimed by Pundir Rajputs with high concentrations in the districts of Dehradun, Saharanpur, Muzaffarnagar, Aligarh and Etawah. According to the British census of 1891 the population of the Pundir Rajputs was recorded at approximately 29,000. The Pundir clan has its origins with Raja Pundarik, the fourth king in line after Kusha. Pundarik is revered as a Rishi and his temple is situated in Katheugi village of the Kullu district in the state of Himachal Pradesh. The rishi is depicted as a white Nāga and in the Puranic lore Pundarik is the name of a White Naga and the legend of Pundarik Rishi also affirms his birth as a Naga from an earthen pot. Kusha, the second born of Sita & Ram, is said to have been the progenitor of the Pundirs.

Naru:- The Narus of Hoshiarpur District claim that their ancestor was a Suryavanshi Rajput of Muttra, named Nipal Chand, and descended from Raja Ram Chand. He was converted in the time of Mahmud of Ghazni and took the name of Naru Shah. Naru Shah settled at Mau in Jalandhar, Whence his son, Ratan Pal, founded Phillaur hence founded the four Naru parganas of Hariana, Bajwara, Sham Chaurasi and Ghorewaha in Hoshiarpur and that of Bahram in Jullunder. The chief men of these parganas are still called Rai or Rana. Some kept Brahmans of the Baadeo got.

Mahmud of Ghazni conquered the country on both sides of the Sutlej, and placed Talochar in charge of it. After leaving Mau he made Bajwara his capital, but the attacks made on him by the hill chiefs compelled him to invoke Mahmud’s aid, and Pathan troops were sent him who were cantoned along the foot of the Siwaliks and are still settled there. Rana Sihra, Naru Khan’s descendant in the fifth generation, returned to Ajudhia, whence Talochar had come, and re-conquered his ancient kingdom, over which he appointed a viceroy. He died at his way back to Punjab at Sunam. His third descendant Rana Mal, had five sons-Kilcha, Bhoja, Dhuni, Massa and Jassa, who divided the territory. Kilcha got the Hariana ilaqa with 750 villages, including Nandachuar, Bahram, Bulhowal, with the title of Tika. Bhoja got Bajwara, Sham Chaurasi, Ahrana, Ajram, Baroti and their dependent villages. Dhuni got the Dhuniat, i.e., Patti, Khanaura, Muna, Badla, Harta, etc. Naru Khan’s grandson Baripal had already seized Bhangala, and Dasuya. Basically naru rajputs are surajbansi rajputs. Historically they are from Rajastan and many of them now living in punjab. They are now mostly Muslims. Some are in Pakistan and few ones are living in India. In Pakistan they mostly found in Sialkot, lahore,shiekhupura, gujranwala,Mianwali and faisalabad. some are satelled in Sindh provence. They use the title Rana or Chaudry.

The largest and oldest among these was Jodhpur, in Marwar and Bikaner. The Maharaja of Jodhpur is regarded as the head of the extended Rathore clan of Hindu Rajputs. Today the clan is numerous and spread over a wide geographical area. Many Rathores have pursued successful careers in politics.At the time of Todd’s list in 1820, the Rathore clan had 24 branches, including the Barmera, Bika, Boola, Champawat, Dangi, Jaitawat, Jaitmallot, Jodha, Khabaria, Khokhar, Kotaria, Kumpawat, Mahecha, Mertiya,  Pokharan,  Mohania,  Mopa,  Randa,  Sagawat,  Sihamalot, Sunda,  Udawat,  Vanar , and  Vikramayat.

Sisodia:-        Chittorgarh Fort,was a  historic seat of the Sisodia clan. The Sisodias are Suryavanshi Rajputs claiming descent from Lord Rama through his son Lava. They were known as the Ranas of Mewar, which was a princely state under the British Raj. The earliest history of the clan claims that they moved from Lahore to Shiv Desh or Chitor in 134 AD. They established themselves as rulers of Mewar in 734 AD, ruling from the fortress of Chittorgarh. They trace their descent from  Bappa Rawal  (ruled 1734–1753), eighth ruler of the Guhilot Dynasty.

Saharan (gotra):- Saharan means (King of the world). Saharan (Gotra) is an ancient Kshatriya Rajput. They use title Shah, Rana, Chaudhary and Malik. Earlier they were in Central Asia than they migrated to northern salt-range Punjab region in India and at the time of Alexander invasion in Punjab in 326 B.C. they fought with Alexander The Great and than Saran along with Sihag ,Punia ,Godara ,Beniwal and Johiya migrated to north Rajasthan region known as Jangladesh and ruled there till 15th century. Megasthenes described them as Syrieni (Saharan), a powerful warrior race in his book Indica. Some of them adopted the profession of agriculture and consider as Jatts. They claim fom Yaduvanshi king Maharaja Gaj of Ghazni. Some Saharans in India and Pakistan still claim from Kshatriya rajputs and their lineage go to Lord Rama (Ram Chandra)included Saharans of Syedwala in Punjab. Some Saharan come from Bhatti Rajput and some connect their linage to Saharan who was the brother of Sindu (Two rulers of Gujrat, India). Some come from Raja Saharan of Thanesar who embraced Islam and this raja also belonged to Gujrat. Some Saharans come from Nagavanshi Rajput linage which also go back to Lord Rama.

Chittorgarh Fort, the seat of the Sisodia kingdom of Mewar, was the site of the three most famous Jauhars recorded in history. When defeat in a siege became certain, the ladies of the fort committed collective self-immolation (Jauhar). Wearing their wedding dresses, and holding their young children by the hand, the women would commit themselves to the flames of a massive, collective pyre, thereby escaping molestation and dishonour at the hands of the invading army. This immolation would occur during the night, to the accompaniment of Vedic chants. Early the next morning, the men would wear saffron-colored garments, apply the ash from the pyres of their wives and children on their foreheads, and put a tulsi leaf in their mouth. Then the gates would be opened and men would ride out for one final, hopeless battle in which death was certain (performing Saka). These acts of Jauhar and Saka are still remembered and have become an important part of Rajput culture and ethos.

Major Chandravanshi clans

Bhati:- Bhati Rajputs are a chandravanshi Rajput clan from the Jaiselmer region of western Rajasthan. The Maharajas of Jaisalmer trace their lineage back to Jaitsimha, a ruler of the Bhati Rajput clan. The major opponents of the Bhati Rajputs were the powerful Rathor clans of Jodhpur and Bikaner. They used to fight battles for the possession of forts, waterholes or cattle.

Their reign spread to the Punjab, Sindh and beyond, to Afghanistan. The City of Ghazni was named after a brave Bhatti warrior.

Their most famous ruler was Prithviraj Chauhan, who won the First Battle of Tarain against an invading Muslim army but lost the Second Battle of Tarain the following year. This loss heralded a prolonged period of Muslim rule over northern India.

Mori : Mori clan is one of the 36 royal clans of Rajputs & falls in 24 eka clans which are not divided further. Mori Rajputs are sub clan of Parmara Rajputs of Agnivansh. They ruled Chittor & Malwa till early part of eighth century & built the biggest fort in India at Chittor in the reign of Chitrangad Mori (Ref: Archaeological survey of India)). Last king of Mori Dynasty of Chittor was Maan Singh Mori who fought against Arab invasion. Qasim attacked Chittor via Mathura. Bappa, of guhilote (Sisodia) dynasty, was a commander in Mori army.

Naga : The Naga (Sanskrit: नाग) were one of the ancient most kshatriya tribes of India who evolved from Suryawansha (the Solar Clan of ancient Kshtriyas of India) and ruled large parts of the country at different times. They spread throughout India during the period of the epic Mahabharata. Anthropologist Gelek Lonbsang believes they have distant ancestry with East Asians based on their similar physical features.[1] The demi-god tribe called Suparnas (in which Garuda belonged) were arch-rivals of the Nagas. However, the Nagas near Kashmir seems to be the original abode of all of them. Places like Anantnag attests this theory.

The worshipers of Nāga were supposedly known as Nāgā or Nāgil. Some Nair and Bunt clans claims to be of Nagvanshi origin. The trace of nagvanshi can be find out in Chotanagpur i.e. Jharkhand (Rai) community and (Shahdeo) community are also nagvanshi Rajput.

મંત્રજાપ દ્વારા , ઉપરછલ્લી શાંતિ પ્રાપ્ત થાય છે. ભગવાનનું નામ એ ભગવાન નથી . તમે ભગવાનની પુજા કરો છો , પણ તમને જીવનમાં સંતોષ જેવુ જણાતું નથી .

જ્યારે આપણું ર્હદય ( હાર્ટ ) ખાલી હોય છે. ત્યારે આપણે ભૌતિક વસ્તુઓ ભેગી કરીએ છીએ .

જ્ઞાનનું વ્યસન , પણ અન્ય વ્યસન જેવુ જ હોય છે.

આદર્શ જે નથી તેવી વસ્તુ છે.

જ્યારે આપણે સત્ય પ્રમાણે વર્તતા નથી ત્યારે એ સત્ય આપણામાં વિષ સમાન બની જાય છે.

માત્ર શીખવાની પ્રક્રિયા અને નહિકે સંચિત જ્ઞાન , મનને વિશેસ રીતે જાગૃત રાખે છે.

તત્વજ્ઞાન ઍટલે સત્ય પ્રત્યેનો પ્રેમ અને જીવન પ્રત્યેનો પ્રેમ.

સુખ અને દુખ એકસાથે રહે છે. તે અભિન્ન છે.
