manuManu Dharma Sastra is the weapon of upper-caste Brahmins. It has two main motives. First of all, this enables the Brahmins to call themselves most superior to other castes and lead a happy life without doing any manual work. It has made the sons of the soil (Dravidians) as slaves to them forever. The non-brahmins are deprived of their self-respect and decency. The second motive is to render injustice to all Dravidians as stipulated in Manu’s law. When such an order is set up permanently, organisations such as the government, courts, constitutional acts, etc., would naturally be dominated and monopolised by the Brahmin community. Such an arrangement would render all others as slaves forever. This is the other motive of the Manu’s code.

It was clearly ordained that Manu’s code or law should be strictly followed for a period of three thousand years.

The Sudra (Dravidians) kings and other rulers took pride in proclaiming that they ruled the people as laid down in the Manu law. Thus the Brahmins sought the necessary safeguards to maintain the evil of casteism attached to others by birth.

After the advent of the British rule, which succeeded the Tamil kings, the Brahmins permitted only the Criminal Acts to be changed on the lines of western countries. For all civil matters, Hindu law based on Manu’s code alone was brought into force.

Can there be a law like Manu’s law that provides a very favourable position only to one particular community? How could it be tolerated with the authority of our own law of the land? How can we permit the courts and judges to base their judgement on Manu’s code?

Is there a country where the people of the land are termed as the sons of prostitutes? Is there a place where the toiling masses of the land are degraded by others of alien countries? Can you find a government, legislation or court remaining a silent spectator to the injustice meted out to the majority of the population? Can you see anywhere people being so docile and negligent as here without trying to erase the disgrace? Nowhere else you can find selfish vested interests as you see in Tamil Nadu!

It is for the Tamil society to think loftily. Our freedom and rights lie in the eradication of disgrace attached to our births. So I humbly appeal to you all to think over these monstrosities. You will feel perturbed and agitated at the ill-treatment given to us by the Manu’s code.

Leave the aged and elderly people. The future is in the hands of the younger generation. I have compiled this book with the hope that our youngsters at least would come forward to think on right lines and act with wisdom.

The Origin of Manu’s Code:

Brahma has been attributed as the author of Manusmiriti. He made laws and gave them to Brigu, a first saint. Later the law was handed over to Maricha by Brigu.

Vol. 1-Sloka 58 (Manu Code).

Later on, Manusmrithi (orthodox varnasrama dharma) was let known to all the saints.

Brahma’s Conduct: 

(1) According to a fable of Hindu religion, Brahma acted as a priest to officiate the marriage of God Paramasiva with Parvathi. When Parvathi went around the sacred fire (Omakundam) she held the end of the apron cloth with her left hand before going round. It enabled Brahma to have a clear look at the Parvathi’s thighs. On seeing the thighs, Brahma became a victim to lust. Brahma’s semen poured out. Brahma left the semen in a vessel near the sacred fire. Immediately Agasthiar was born.

(2). When Parvathi came around the sacred fire again, Brahma once again relished her thighs, and he once again became a victim to lust and semen poured out once again. This time he left the semen on the green plants, creepers and trees. This time a number of saints (Rishis) were born in no time. Of them, Valkilliyathe was one.

(3). As Brahma left the place after the marriage, he once again secreted the semen and dropped it on the ashes of a graveyard. Here also a Rakshasa named Pooricharavanan was born.

(4) After this, Brahma collected the bones in the burial ground and once again secreted the semen and dropped it on the heap of the bones. Instantly a brave and strong man called Salliyan was born.

(5) As he left the graveyard, a small quantity of semen was secreted, and it dropped on the ground. A Bird came there and consumed the semen of Brahma. The bird became pregnant and gave birth to a man called Sakuni.

(6) Then God Brahma went to a tank. He dropped a little of his semen there. A frog came and swallowed the semen of Brahma, and the frog gave birth to a female child called Mandothari.

(7) At last, Brahma dropped the last remnants of his semen in a lotus flower in a tank. The lotus flower became pregnant and gave birth to a female child called Padma?

(8) On seeing his daughter Padma, Brahma was very much moved. He looked at the beauty of his daughter. He wooed his daughter and wanted to have intercourse. How could a daughter give consent to one’s own father? Padma refused. Brahma did not give up his desire. He began to quote the Vedas to his daughter to make her realise that there is nothing wrong in enjoying with anyone, anytime, anywhere for the sake of giving birth to a child.

“Mathara Mupathya, susara Mupaithe, Puthrartheetha.
Sagamarthi, Napathra loka, nasthee thath.
Saravam paravo vindu ha, dasmath Puthrar tham.
Matharam suransathee Rehathee”

This is the Sanskrit sloka Brahma quoted to his daughter. He explained to his daughter that for the sake of a child, one could enjoy with one’s own sister or daughter, as per the authority of the sacred Vedas composed by Brahmin Scholar.

(9). Brahma managed to convince his daughter with the help of the Veda and enjoyed her. Brahma’s semen entered the womb of his daughter. But somehow, for reasons not known, he extracted his semen from the womb of his daughter, with the help of his own penis.

(10) This behaviour of God Brahma and his lustful actions reached the king of Devas-Devendran. He deputed Thilothama a dancing girl of Devalokam to dance. She danced in all the four directions and up above in the sky. By this Brahma got five heads. He was much enamoured of the beauty of Thilothama. Brahma followed Thilothama for her love. God Eswara personally saw the madness of Brahma. So he cut away one of the heads of Brahma.

(11) Then Brahma began to roam about in the forests. He happened to see a female bear in a bush. Brahma would not leave it. He went straight to the bush. The female bear yielded to Brahma. God Brahma enjoyed with the bear, and a human being with the head of a bear was born. He is called Jambu Vandan, the son of Brahma.

(12) The Brahma met Urvasi, a prostitute. He was much moved by her beauty. He wooed her and made an agreement. Accordingly, after enjoying her, he left the semen extracted from the womb of his daughter Padma and left in the womb of Urvasi. The child born was named Vasistan. After performing all these incredible acts, god Brahma transferred his powers to Vasistan and went away to perform penance.

The origin and Birth of Munivars and Rishis who created Vedas and Sastras

The birth of these Rishis is against the laws of nature, absurd and vulgar. I give a few examples.

RISHIS BORN TO

  • Kalaikottur Rishi Deer
  • Kousik Kusam
  • Jambukar Jackal
  • Gouthamar Bull
  • Valmiki Hunter
  • Agasthiar Vessel
  • Vyasar Fisher woman
  • Vashistar Urvasi
  • Naradar Washer woman
  • Kadanasalliyar Widow
  • Madankar Cobbler woman
  • Mandaviyar Frog
  • Sankiar Pariah woman
  • Kangaeyar Ass
  • Sounagar Dog
  • Ganathar Owl 
  • Sugar Parrot
  • Jambuvantar Bear
  • Aswathaman Horse

This is the greatness of the Hindu rishis and their births! I think the people of the Barbarian era would at least be more intelligent than our Dravidian people. The history of our forefathers and rishis is disgusting and demeaning. They are responsible for our Dravidian degradation and disgrace. Now let us pass on to other gods.

As per one Hindu mythology Mahavishnu and Parameswaran both males, fall in love with each other, cohabit and produce a male child who is being worshipped by the Hindu orthodox people even now, as Sastha or Iyappan or Harihara Puthran.

Again it is stated clearly that Mahavishnu fell in love with another Brahma rishi called Naradar and produced not one child but 60 babies. Sixty years of the Hindus from Prabava, are named after the 60 children of Brahma.

These episodes do not stop with Mahavishnu. We are told of interesting vulgarities about Mahavishnu’s wife called Mahalakshmi. It seems Lakshmi saw a beautiful horse and instantly fell in love with the horse. Vishnu, the knower of all things, came to know about this matter. He immediately changed his wife, Lakshmi, into a mare and he himself became a horse. Then Vishnu and Lakshmi enjoyed. They did not give birth to a foal, but a human being was born to them. He was named Eka Veeran.

Now let us take into consideration the truths said about the greatness of Devendiren, the king of the devas. Once the king Devendiran happened to see a lady named Parisadam, She was the dutiful wife of a rishi. He wanted to have intercourse with her. He said that he had a great love for her. She replied that she has neither love for Indiran, nor could she betray her husband. Indiran was frustrated. He was determined to achieve his object. Sometime later the rishi performed Aswamedha Yaga wherein his wife Parisadam had to insert the penis of the horse into her womb, as a ritual. Indiran seized this as the best opportunity. He somehow entered inside the male organ of the horse and accomplished his long-felt desire. Indiran spoilt Parisadam forcibly against her wishes.

I have enlightened you with great restraint, the details regarding Brahma, Rishis, Devas and their king to enable you to learn something about them as is authoritatively stated in the Manu’s code.

Today our high courts are giving judgments based on the Hindu Law. As justice is given to all taking into consideration mainly what the Manu law, rishis and devas have said sometime long ago, I am telling you all these things for deep consideration.

So far as the Hindus are concerned, where there is a problem to be decided, the dharma sastras are deemed to be the main basic rock of determination. Of all, the Manu code is the most important one.

The Privy Council has categorically stated about the Manu code thus: “However obsolete, and out of date it might be, judgment based on it are final”. Not only this, but the Constitution of India is also laid down according to the Manu law.

The very fact that the measures taken by the Government of Tamilnadu to enable all communities to do the job as priests in temples were nullified by the Supreme Court of India clearly demonstrated that the Manu’s law is still under full sway. The Act passed by the elected representatives of the people in Tamilnadu Assembly has been set aside as derogatory and against Manu law.

Now let us further see what are the laws contained in the Manu’s code and how far they are just and fair. The Courts decide matters strictly conforming to the laws laid down in the Manu’s code, forgetting the fact that the Manu’s code is mainly intended to make a particular community (Brahmins) prosperous.

Origin 

Brahma is the creator of the Manu Dharma. Later it was strictly disclosed by him to rishis.
