Ancestors of Lord Ram
Adi Manu and the Construction of Nation:
A man who saves whom that one creature saves him. Once while describing ‘Ahimsa Parmo Dharmah’ (Non-violence is the supreme religion), I told that if we did not save anybody, no body would protect us in this world. This life moves with nature and conscience. Actually when Maharaj Manu understood well that the religion was being attacked at several places, influence of devils was being increased and the gods (divine sages) had been minimized till zero. At that time he gathered Adi Rishis. In which Maharishi Vibhandak, Maharishi Para etc. were present. Maharaj Manu said to them, “I was studying Vedas today, there a beautiful description of a nation I read that there is a rule named as ‘Nation’.” With firm decision Maharishi Tatvvetta said to Rishis, “Bhagwan! It seems to me that Vedas had the methods of a Nation for that period when human beings leave their duties behind and become low standard. To save the religion a nation is made. Adi Brahma too have given this statement. In fact, we should construct a nation now.” At that time Manu told, “If I get a little help, I shall make the nation. This is my very desire. To end the devils. To end the misconduct of devils, it is quiet required to build a nation.”
System of Varnas (Tribes)
After taking the help of Rishis, Manu Maharaj, established the Varna System. When a brahmchari went to school for education the teacher used to treat him first, that for which Varna that brahmchari(boy) or bramcharini(girl) might belong to. Suppose a son is wise, the designation of Brahmin was given to him. Whose intellect is sharp in the field of business – Vaishya and who used to be protector of others and used to be fond of weapons and archery was called Kshatriya by the Acharyas (teachers) and who was not able to get any of these three Learning was decorated by designation Shudra.
