Communally hypnotism: Deprograming of the mindset

Nepal being only the hindu nation in the world till 2006 Nepalese are very much religious in terms of worshipping gods and goddesses and celebrating feasts and festivals. Since the early days rulers and political leaders had been controlling Nepalese for so many years by fictitious writings. Thus, their faith based belief system is strongly embedded in their subconscious mind since they have been fooled, bulled and ruled for so long by being communally hypnotised. Contribution of making this happened goes to the King Jayasthiti Malla (r.1382-1395), who united the valley, namely Kathmandu (Kirtipur), Bhatkapur and Patan the third king of the Malla Dynasty, a ruling dynasty of Nepal from the 12th to the 18th century that stretched over 550 years and codified the frist law in Nepal, including the caste system, based on the dharma of ancient religious textbooks[1].

The Manab Nyaya Shastra is the first codified law of Nepal. It was written during the Malla Dynasty, which is known to be the 5th dynasty of Nepal. It was written by King Jayasthiti Malla in the 14th century along with the help of five learned persons; Kirtinath Upadhyaya Kanyakubja, Raghunath Jha Maithili, Srinath Bhatta, Mahinath Bhatta, and Ramanath Jha. The Manab Nyaya Shastra was consequently written after the study of Manu Smriti, Yagyawalkya Smriti, Mitachhyara Tika, Brihaspati Smriti, Narad Smriti and other holy texts. It was written concentrating on the practices that prevailed in the society then. The Manab Nyaya Shastra has introduced many legal provisions regarding houses, lands, castes, dead bodies etc. It was the major source of rendering justice during the medieval period. Much influence of religion can be found in the laws then. [2]"

 This legendary compilation of traditions was seen as the source of legal reforms during the 19th and 20th centuries.

The Malla era shaped the religious as well as artistic landscape, introducing the dramatic chariot festivals of Indra Jatra and Matsyendranath. The Malla kings shored up their position by claiming to be reincarnations of the Hindu god Vishnu and establishing the cult of the Kumari, a living goddess whose role it was to bless the Malla's rule during an annual celebration [1].

The Malla dynasty last king Jaya Prakash Malla, the king of Kathmandu (Kritipur), was an intelligent ruler ruled from 1736 to 1746, and then from 1750 until Prithvi Narayan Shah of the Gorkha Kingdom invaded it in 1768-69 CE with the Battle of Kirtipur also used the religion as sword to fight against Prithvi Narayan Shah [3]. He looked to religion for support to fight against Gorkhas. A priest he trusted told  him  that the future of Nepal depended on the Kumari (Living Goddess). And so in 1768, the festival of Indra Jatra was celebrated with fervour. The Nepalese (the Newar people) drank lots of rice beer during the festivities, especially on September 13 on the day of the chariot festival. They did not notice that the Gorkhas had entered the city until they had surrounded the Kumari’s chariot.
Pandemonium broke out that Jaya Prakash Malla jumped down from the royal chariot with his two wives and escaped to Lalitpur. Prithv Narayan Shah stepped in front of the bewildered crowd and shouted, “I’m now your king. Carry on with your drinking.” Prithvi Narayan Shah was a that time 46 years old.

Many Newars drank rice beer because they were terror-stricken. The Gorkhas put their swords to the necks of the Newars who refused to accept the new king, so they had no choice but to obey. In the following winter, the Gorkhas also conquered Lalitpur without any opposition. The Mallas then gathered at the palace in Bhaktapur. The palace was well defended. And following the advice of his British advisors, Prithvi Narayan Shah imposed a blockade. After three years, Bhaktapur’s food stock ran out. And one night, some illegitimate children of the Mallas opened the gates to the city. The valley’s three kings were arrested in their bedrooms. Jaya Prakash Malla committed suicide. To show his big-heartedness, Prithvi Narayan allowed Jaya Prakash to be brought to Pashupatinath temple for the final rites.

Jang Bahadur Rana, ruler of Nepal and founder of the Rana dynasty, a Hindu Rajput dynasty which ruled the Kingdom of Nepal from 1846 until 1951, reducing the Shah monarch to a figurehead and making Prime Minister and other government positions hereditary. He ruled 1846 to 25 February 1877 and received the hereditary rights to the title of Rana and a salute of 19 guns from the British.
The Nepali civil code Muluki Ain was written by Jang Bahadur Rana in 1854 after his European tour. It codified social codes in practice for several centuries in Nepal that was rooted in Vyavahāra (traditional Hindu legal procedure), Prāyaścitta (avoidance and removal of sin) and Ācāra (the customary law of different castes and communities). These three are collectively called Dharmaśāstra. A traditional Hindu king was duty-bound to put these precepts into practice.
The Muluki Ain divided Nepali citizens into two castes "the caste whose water is allowed to remain pure" and "the caste whose water is defiled" promoting caste (upper and lower) and gender based discriminations. These discriminatory provisions of the civil code were based on Hindu scriptures like Parskar Grihyasutra, Gautam Sutra, Manusmṛti and Shukra Niti [4,5].

There was no provision for lower-caste participation in the economic, social, cultural and administrative spheres. They had to survive on low-paid manual work such as playing indigenous musical instruments, leather-work, practicing music, art and dance, pottery, general labor, cleaning latrines, and washing clothes. This system prevailed till by law until Muluki Ain was revised in 1962.
The present caste system derives from Shah dynasty founder who unified Nepal, Prithvi Narayan's famous saying that Nepal as a garden of 4 castes and 36 classes (4 jat, 36 varna) [6]. However this is only a rough estimate for the Hill region. The Newar community and the Terai community each has more than 36 castes.
Nepal is a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, multilingual country. As per the recent census 2011, Hinduism is practised by about 81% of Nepalis, making it the country with the highest percentage of Hindu followers; Buddhism is linked historically with Nepal and is practiced by 9%, Islam by 4.4%, Kirat 3%, Christianity 1.4%, and animism 0.4%.  There is 126 caste/ethnic groups in Nepal.
Since last 5-6 years to seek the soical justice socio-political conflicts between two groups, Bahun/Chhetri and Janajati (indigeneous), Madheshi, women, dalit (untouchable caste), religious minorities (muslim/christians) have been going on that they have been facings ruling castes group since last 250 years. In our hardware, brain religious software had been successfully instilled by the rulers and politicians because people were forbidden to obtain education. Nepal opened its borders to the outside world only in 1950. Therefore, massive population were in isolation and also not allowed to obtain education.
Now, without creating further choatic situation in the heavenly nation, Nepal to bring soical justice through peaceful movement, Nepalese need to learn to Deprogram their Programmed Mindset (Subconscious mind) of 250 years, which is very challenging. However, there is a great hope since majority (40%) of Nepal's population constitute of youths who relatively believe in scientific knowledge rather than myths that have been promoting by rulers, politicians, and their scholars and advisors to shaped the mind of people to fool, bull and rule over them hypnotising them.

The scientists, headed by Doctor Julius Sanreso, research findings said that organised religion or creationism to accept the fact that religious books were written by men as a control system [7].

"We must ensure that the people who have been fooled for so long by fictitious belief systems utilised to control humans do not get too angry when they realise that what they believe in is nonsense written by humans utilising human created language. This could be dangerous for society, so we must either let them carry on believing their fiction or try to somehow support them when they realise the truth," Dr Sanreso said.

Infact, no one can win TIME and MIND we are born to LOVE and our mind is software and our brain is like a hardware.

When we are born our mind is free with prejudice, hatred and fear. All the programs such as hatred, fear, belief, negativity, etc have been instilled by our parents, society, schools, media, preachers, priests, etc during the socialisation process.

Due to this we, Nepalese are very much superstitious because without any reason or logic we just blindly trust to our preachers, priests, monks, and faith that means are we brainless who can't think rationally what is right or wrong!! We've to understand that
“ If superstition enters, the brain is gone. ”
~ Swami Vivekananda

Therefore, as a literate people if we truly want to establish PEACE, Harmony, Unity, Prosperity, Justice and Equality in our society and nature made heaven but man (manubadi demonic rulers and their advisors of past and present) made HELL nation then WE, literate Nepalese MUST LEARN to DEPROGRAM our MINDSET that has been PROGRAMMED since we were born to date.

To Deprogram our programmed mindset we have to learn to live with REASON rather than clinging blindly on belief in man-made faith. We've to learn to follow religions with REASON in each and every aspect for humanity as Buddha said:

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”

We've to learn to Think Positive. Act Positive. Develop Positive Habits. Life is too short to waste in destructive thoughts and habits. If you can do this then Nepal can be made heavenly nation as per the time present time demand of 21st century establishing just society treating every Nepalese like a human rather than inhumane manner which can be still found in our society.
