      Enforced celibacy of men by Dharmashoka and the beginning of India's downfall
      ______________________________________________________________________

      Question : Does the purity of Aryan blood still exist in spite of so much mixing with the blood from Non-Aryan, Dravidian etc.? Many say that the swamp of Buddhism actually destroyed the Varnashram in India?

      Shri Shri Thakur : Wherever "pratiloma" mixing has not taken place, verily it exists there beyond any doubt. The families in which the "gotra" is preserved, we can assume the continuity is still running there with a swelling urge albeit through a lean existence.

      The swamp of Buddhism never destroyed Arya-krishti, neither did it ruin the Brahminism through any extinctive impact. On the contrary, Buddhism did instigate it towards improvement. It tried to revive Varnashram, which was losing its way through the scattered damages in the non-Aryan environment, giving it a new name in a gratifying way. Buddhism tried to control those, who were struggling in the whirlpool of different sacraments, by attracting them through the announcement of a better uplifting go of life. Without seeing, hearing or understanding anything and telling whatsoever in the name of the swamp of Buddhism one cannot bring in a better go of life keeping its interest intact. If at all anything which went wrong, in my opinion, was the loss of "efficient flowers of the country" through marriage-prohibiting asceticism which transpired when Dharmashoka started extending his dharma-rajya (territory).

      So many superior women from superior families, not being able to marry those celibacy-stricken efficient men, forcibly had to marry men from inferior families having inferior "instinct" and the result of their pratiloma union created such a havoc in the society that it failed to sustain Dharmashoka. Soon after his demise his dharma-rajya faded away in such a way that its mere imagination makes the blood in the artery go flaccid and benumbed. From that moment onwards India's utter destruction, aroused in ugly nakedness, started its lacklustre lightning-laughter which is continuing even today. I do not want to think about it, lest I remember that disgrace-tainted, nasty-crooked, error-absorbed, cursed, anti-improvement, vicious, murky, inherent reason behind it.

      Amidst all these the only ray of hope is the orthodoxy of the Aryans in the dogged grappling of their heredity and culture. That orthodoxy, which in spite of sustaining prolonged torture and rebuke, is still able to preserve and carry forward their blood and instincts albeit through a lean existence. Even now, given favourable "nourishment", the withered tree can start sprouting again in this deep forest – will anyone do that?
