Thomas Jefferson was very critical of Christianity and its coercive and deceptive practices.

Millions of innocent men, women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites.”

In this video Music Director, Sri M M Keeravani, one can listen to his comments on praising the Karuna (compassion) and Kshama Guna (forgiveness nature) of Jesus while denouncing Hindu scriptures. One must be out of his mind, ignorant, purposefully demeaning Hinduism or intentionally promoting Christianity. In this article we will give 9 examples of Karuna and Kshama Guna from Hindu scriptures. At the same time, we will identify the verses where Jesus showed his jealousy, angry, wrath, killings, stoning, condemning, dashing the children, flooding the villages, spreading plague and so on that is contrary to Sri Keeravani’s biased, prejudiced and ignorant assessment.

Sri Keeravani made three statements that are insulting Hindu philosophy and Hindu scriptures:

1) He said he worships all Gods and believes in all philosophies.

If he really believes in all philosophies, he is failed to see the inherent contradictions in them. Either he did not really read these philosophies or purposefully elevating Christianity over other faiths for his personal advantage. It did not dawn on him that Christianity hates and abhors Hinduism. Every day Christians talk about converting mostly illiterate, ignorant, selfish Hindus into Christianity to wipe out Hinduism. If we look at all three major religions, Hinduism talks about ahimsa, tolerance, forgiveness, love, mutual respect, pluralism, freedom and independence. Other two religion speak about destruction, rape, killing, stoning to death, deception, allurement, breaking the idols, killing the nonbelievers and converting Hindus to their fold.

Most likely Sri Keeravani is promoting the demise of Hinduism while like a parasite feeding himself on Hindu tree by composing music and or singing songs on Hindu Gods and Saints. For the sake of the future of India, for the sake of our youth, and for the safety and security of the humanity, let us explain the differences and why we are scientific, rational, independent and pluralistic? Let us make sure we will leave the legacy of freedom for our children to enjoy. Let us not deny this freedom.

Has he ever thought why Christians and Muslims would not display the signs of all faiths in their Churches and mosques, while all the Hindu Saints put the sings of all the religions to indicate all the religions are same.

  1. He said he did not find any karuna (Compassion) or Kshama Guna (forgiveness quality) either in the Puranas and in the history, the way he found it in Jesus. We will explain hatred and anger of Jesus in great detail in the next section.
  2. By making these false statements, did he decide to promote Jesus and downgrade Hindu scriptures.

Sri Keeravani’s statements reflect the total ignorance of the true nature of Bible. Only people who did not read the Bible would make such drastic statements. In fact, as per Statista survey, only 11 percent of Americans read the Bible daily. In 2021, only 29 percent of Americans read the Bible once a year or more. The Pew research indicates that only 25% of Americans attend Church any given Church, significantly down from 47% in 1990. Also, about 25% American Christians believe to be a book written by mere men, not at all the WORD of God.   

               As we can see that the readership and Church attendance is declining in USA over the years. In Europe it is even lower than USA. Any bot who reads Bible, he will never be a Christian. It is a business for many Christians in India. That may be the reason, Mark Twain stated that “The best cure for Christianity is reading the Bible.” The Bible is so nasty, Voltaire say, "Christianity is the most ridiculous, the most absurd and bloody religion that has ever infected the world." In fact, the Bible is filled with cruelty, murder, plunder, debauchery, obscenity, offensive, and torture. Christianity made many people illogical, irrational, and less objective. Keeravani and his friends in the movie filed decided to be imprisoned by the Bible. Friedrich Nietzsche said that Christianity is the single great curse, the single great innermost depravity, the single great instinct of revenge, for which no expedient is poisonous, secretive, subterranean, small enough--I call it mankind's single immortal blemish.

Many Christian missionaries have perfected their deceptive techniques to impress on the virtues of Jesus as humble, truthful, compassionate, loving, peaceful, wise, forgiving, kind and so on. It is obvious that some of these people are like an empty glass which can be filled with any dirt. If Keeravani and other Tollywood artists have read the Bible, they would have come up with a different assessment. Either for their economic survival, name, fame and power, they denounce their own faith and elevate Christianity.

Hindu Scriptures are filled with Forgiveness and Compassion; Keeravani insulted Hindu scriptures.

In Sanskrit, Kshama means forgiveness (Kshama) is synonymous with endurance, tolerance, patience or forbearance (kshamata). Forgiveness encompasses all these, and more. Forgiveness is a virtue because by forgiving others, you willingly accept the suffering caused by others by their thoughtless actions.

  1. means Compassion or mercy. It means any action taken to diminish suffering. It is selfless action shown to others without expecting anything in return.

In Hinduism, forgiveness, atonement, compassion mercy, atonement, tolerance, kindness and endurance are found in all of our scriptures. Hindu Gods are extremely forgiving and compassionate and their qualities are always to be truthful, kind, courteous, fearless, nonviolence, humble, judicious and gentle.

There are numerous examples of compassion and forgiveness found in Puranas, Ramayana, Mahabharata and Saints dating back to Treta Yuga, Dwapara Yuga, and the current Yuga.

1) The Forgiveness of Sant Eknath: A group of people were gambling. One of the gamblers bet that he can make Sant Eknath angry. The other gamblers said that Eknath would not get angry. They tried to test the patience of Eknath. The gambler who had betted, had a house near the banks of Godavari. He went home and the next morning he was waiting for Eknath to come to Godavari to have his bath. Eknath had his bath and was returning back. The gambler was chewing pan and spited on his head from the terrace of his house on Eknath. Eknath didn’t even bother to look up to see him, nor did he shout at him and he went back to Godavari to bath again. When he came back the gambler again spit the pawn on him. Eknath still dint say anything and went back to bath again. It happened 108 times. He did not get angry.

  1. the gambler came down and asked him how he had so much of patience and that why he did not get angry with him when he has been spiting on him since morning. Eknath then replied to him that he came to Godavari to clean his body before performing pooja to God. He also said that one should perform pooja with clean body and mind. When he spited on him, he only dirtied his body and went back to clean it. He forgave the gambler and said that if he had got angry and shouted at him, his mind would have become dirty and that it would be even more difficult to clean his mind than cleaning his body. The gambler was moved hearing this and said that he had read about this but never seen this in practice.

2) Pandavas forgave numerous times: If you look at Mahabharata, Pandavas forgave Kauravas and Dhritarashtra many times. When the Pandavas were sleeping in the lacquer (Flammable house} Kauravas set fire to make sure the fire engulfs the house so fast that no Pandavas would be able to escape. They did not take revenge against Kauravas.

3) Karna’s Forgiveness: One such instance is that of Karna and Kunti. When Kunti asks Karna to fight from the side of her sons, he promised to kill only Arjuna. Kunti abandoned Karna in the river to protect her dignity. She left him as soon as he was born. In his whole life, he was called Sutaputra and was insulted. When Kunti came to know the truth, even then she did not tell the truth to Karna. She only told him about it when the war was about to take place and she needed security for her sons. After all this, Karna still promised not to harm the rest of the Pandavas and accepted Kunti as his mother. He forgave Kunti for all the torture she had done to him.

4) Pandavas forgive Duryodhana: Duryodhana invited his cousins to a picnic on the banks of the Ganga. While the elders ate, drank and chatted, the younger crowd played games, swam, climbed trees and enjoyed themselves. Bhima lost no opportunity to harass his cousins and this strengthened Duryodhana’s resolve to kill him.

Pandavas forgave Duryodhana who tried to kill Bhima with poisoned foo. Duryodhana who was fed up Bhima’s pranks, Bhima was away from the crowd and offered him poisoned food. Bhima ate it and fell unconscious. Duryodhana and his friends tied Bhima with creepers and vines and threw him into the river. In the river Vasuki and other Nagas neutralized the poison in Bhima’s body and fed him nectar that increased his strength. Having befriended the Nagas, Bhima returned home to his family. Pandavas forgave Duryodhana; did not retaliate.

5) Krishna accepted the curse of Gandhari even after she said that he would die in 36 years and Yadav dynasty will come to an end. “If my years of Shiv Bhakti have been true, and if I have been true to my husband, then, may you die in 36 years from today. May Dwaraka be flooded and may every one of your Yadava kin perish by killing each other, just as you made the kins of Kuru kill one another. May the Yadavas die out…. may the Yadavas die out….”

 Sri Krishna didn't want to disrespect Gandhari by averting the curse which she gave to Krishna by merit which she acquired by tapas of dutifully following her husband.

Sri Krishna was well capable of diverting this curse, but he did not do so. One of the reasons is to respect Gandhari's curse and words and to make them true, which she uttered in anger. He incited the curse by asking Yadavas to make pilgrimage.

6) Rama forgives Kaikeyi: Kaikeyi demanded that Rama should be sent to forests for a period thirteen years and make Bharat the king of Ayodhya. When Rama entered the palace, Queen Kaikeyi was very scared. She thought that Rama will blame her for sending him to the forest and will be very angry with her. But instead, Rama first went to her room, even before seeing his own mother Kausalya. He bent down and touched her feet to respect her. Kaikeyi was so happy that Rama had forgiven her. Rama said, "Mother, how can I ever be angry with you." Kaikeyi then hugged Rama and said, "I am very sorry for what I did. You are so forgiving and respectful, that you are my favorite son. I love you even more than my own son Bharat."

In fact, Rama says “… tell [Bharata] to look after the mothers in accordance with justice…protect your mother, Kaikeyi.” The injustice of Kaikeyi is paid back by the Lord as Justice and love

7) Sitadevi Compassion to Rakshasas: In the Ramayana, we find that after Ravana was killed, Sri Hanuman went to the Ashoka Vana to meet Sitadevi and inform her of the good news of Sri Rama’s victory.

Sita Devi was extremely delighted on hearing the news and asked Hanuman to ask for any boon he desired.

Sri Hanuman was full of anger against the demoness who were guarding Sita devi because they were always causing trouble and fear to her. So, he wanted Sitadevi’s permission to kill them.

Mother Sita exhibited her unlimited compassion and magnanimity when She said that those Rakshasas were simply and helplessly working under the instructions of the evil Ravana as his servants and it is not right to punish them. She says, “O Hanuma! There is an old maxim possessed of merit, actually uttered by a bear in the presence of a tiger. Hear it from me. 'A superior person does not take into account the sin of those who have committed an offence (against him). The vow of not returning evil for evil must be carried out at all costs; (for) the virtuous persons account good conduct as an ornament.'

Similarly, Sita asks Lord Rama “… do not kill Rakshasas dwelling in the Dandaka without provocation.” Sita pleads Rama to forego his Kshatriya duty.

8) Rama’s Mercy toward Ravana: Mercy is the corner stone of Ramayana. Forgiveness and compassion are perfumed all through Ramayana. To be merciful is the duty of Rama as a King. It is seen in the reply that Rama gives to Sita saying; “… Even if the hermits do not ask me to protect, I will do so to them. It is my duty.”

This duty of the king is also expressed through Hanuman to Ravana saying; “I have come here with a heart full of mercy for thee for telling what is for thy good.”

When Vibhishana came to Rama and expressed his anguish and the evil minded of his brother Ravana, Lord Rama said, “Suppose it were Ravana himself came to me, I would take him all right. Do you think that I used these words lightly? I really wished in my heart of hearts that Ravana should come to me and I should accept him and forgive him. I intended to do him some good but he was obstinate.”

After Ravana was killed by Rama, in all his compassion, he requested Vibhishana to perform the funeral rites to his brother. Vibhishana detested by saying all about Ravana’s evil mindedness and his cruel treatment of Sita in Lanka. However, the Karunamayi, Rama tells Vibhishana, “… Hatred and enmity ceases with death. Let the funeral rites be performed in a fitting manner by you as his brother. I myself consider him [Ravana] as a brother who is due all honor and respect due to a departed soul”

9) Vidura’s Compassion:  Dhritarashtra used to receive proper and appropriate advice from Vidura on many matters. He constantly told Dhritarashtra to make peace with Pandavas. One day Dhritarashtra was so angry, he said: “O Vidura, you constantly argue for the Pandavas and against my boys. You’re not looking out for us. Duryodhana was conceived in my womb. How can I abandon him? What good is it to suggest such an abnormal path of action? I no longer need you because I no longer have trust in you. You can visit the Pandavas if you like.” Dhritarashtra left Vidura behind dejected with his advice.

Realizing the mistake, heartbroken Dhritarashtra sends a message to Vidura to return. Vidura, a Dharma incarnate with a tender heart and affection, went back to the Hastinapur Palace. The differences between Dhritarashtra and Vidura were melted away by tears of affectional embrace. Vidura never harbored anger for all the insults hurled at him by Dhritarashtra and Duryodhana.

Forgiveness is virtue; forgiveness is sacrifice; forgiveness is the Vedas; forgiveness is the Shruti.
Forgiveness protecteth the ascetic merit of the future; forgiveness is asceticism; forgiveness is holiness; and by forgiveness is it that the universe is held together.— 
Mahabharata, Book 3, Vana Parva, Section XXIX,

Righteousness is the one highest good, forgiveness is the one supreme peace, knowledge is one supreme contentment, and benevolence, one sole happiness. — Mahabharata, Book 5, Udyoga Parva, Section XXXIII.

Part 2 of the article about the hatred, mass killings, wrath, destructions, violence, breaking of Idols, will be published on September 12 (Monday)
