What defines the truth ? May be evidences !! But, lack of evidence doesn’t imply lack of existence. So, how can I be sure of the irrefutable.
There are many realities. There are many versions of what may appear obvious. Whatever appears as the unshakeable truth, its exact opposite may also be true in another context. After all, one’s reality is but perception, viewed through various prisms of context.
We all are living in a world of fallacy. Everyone misunderstands and is totally misunderstood. Lifetime is spent in sorting out misapprehensions in relations. And when all is said and done, we stand perplexed.
We have developed the habit of living in illusion. Taking development into account, we believe ourselves to be scientifically well off but we are not. We are just discovering not inventing !!
Neither we have the gist of the great science of architecture, the Vastu-Shastra nor the system of medicine with historical roots, the Ayurveda. We havn’t been able to regenerate the somras which at one point of time was consumed by almost every denizen of Indus Valley Civilization. We profess to be great architects, but more than half of our constructions prove to be poor either in strength in midst of thousand year old monuments or in implementations of vastu-shastra. Whether it’s astronomy or astrology or any of the vedic texts, none of them is questionable if we get to understand them. Unfortunately, we are unable to comprehend them. Which implies everything is no less than a mirage for us and our ancestors were far closer to reality than we do.
Pondering on implications of karma and fate in our lives is still another mystery. If it’s the karma then do just intentions matter or only the result ? Similarly, if a man is a legend or not is decided by history and not fortune tellers, then what the prophesy of “Kali-yug” done ages ago, the forecast regarding the killing of Kansa by Krishna and many more similar have to do with human deeds? In the same way, if we consider to whom one marry is decided by discretion of a human mind, then what factors decide one’s birth-family ?
Indeed, we tend to have develop the habit of crediting all good to our karma and bad to our fate. We change the truth to our needs.
Still the quest is on !! Thanks to authors like Amish Tripathi, Ashwin Sanghi, Dan Brown and many other to bring the fictional works which could content us with evidences which we are unable to puzzle out in great epics.
