Effects of Budha’s revolution
Three important impacts took place of the Revolution that Buddha brought about. The Mulnivasis that were made shudras and slaves rose up to become Kings. Rule of law emerged based on the principle of equality. This is evident after observing rule of King Maurya. This was a first impact.
The second impact was women were freed totally. If women from any society remain slaves then they are not able to give rise to free nation. Keeping this mind and creating free nation women were given complete freedom after Buddha’s revolution. They got the right of equality. This came forward as big impact.
Third and final impact that was witnessed was development of knowledge and Science. Buddha used to speak any statement based on evidence, proof and logic. In order to carry forward this practice of evidence, proof, logic; gave rise to development of knowledge science. Today believers of Buddha go in front of Buddha’s statue and bow down their heads, light candles, pray, but nothing will happen from all this.This conspiracy to end the thought of Buddha is not only carried forward by Brahmins but also by those believers of Thathagat Buddha.
Brahmins never recognized and accepted the impacts that flowed out from Buddha’s revolution. They continuously prepared for counter-revolution by infiltrating inside Buddha’s Bikshu Sanghs. They added mixture in his revolutionary thoughts. When Dr.Babasaheb Ambedkar took up the task of writing the volume on ‘Buddha and his Dhamma’ that time question arose in front of his as to from available literature which is of Buddha and which is of Brahmin prepared through mixtures. In such a big scale mixtures were added in Buddha’s thoughts.
There was ‘Vinay Pith’ in order to regulate and administer Bikshu Sangh. In this Vinay Pith there were rules for Bikshus. In that it was written that this thought must be propagated in people’s languages. This was Buddha’s order. Buddha’s pleadings were that the people to whom we want to reach, the people to whom we want to convince, people must understand our point of view. That’s why he asked Bikshus to propagate his ideology in people’s languages. That time ideology was propagated specially in languages like Pali, Maghadi, Ardh Magahadi etc and Buddha banned propagation of his ideology in Sanskrit.
Buddha did not ban Sanskrit because he was opponent of Sanskrit but because Sankrit was not the people’s language. It was language of only some people, and this language was used by Brahmins to fool us.
After Buddha this rule of Bikshu Sangh was changed which Buddha was asking to obey with utmost strictness. This was changed and written that if necessary propagation can be carried on even in Sanskrit. In this way mixture was introduced in Buddha’s revolutionary thought after Buddha.
The mixtures in Buddha’s ideology began after Buddha; as a consequence Maurya Kingdom got destroyed. Buddhists King named Mahapandam was assassinated by a Brahmin named Chanakya, and after him last King Bruhadrath was assassinated by a Brahmin named Pushyamitra Shrung because of which counter revolution took place. This counter revolution too resulted in very dangerous and very serious impacts. There are written records available of this.
