800 To 600 Before Christ, The Upanishads

800 to around 600 BC must have been a fertile period on Earth for spiritual insights, because seer in India make great progress in the understanding of the human soul. They recognize e.g. Âtman and Brahman. Major texts of the Upanishads provided on the experience of the seeker.

Some will be taught as secret others will be publicly discussed.

The younger the Upanishads are, the more concepts of the Indian caste system are emerging. For example the consequences of the deeds of one life will occur in a next life. Who is evil can be reborn as an animal.

How long might it take before an insight which may free the people becomes changed by a sort of belief-establishment and will be so interpreted that it serves the state.

Should I believe:

We all have a divine soul, but who is in need of social welfare that refers to evil deeds of a previous life? And a rich politicians who enforces health reforms has a good old soul? A reform that results in keeping poor people of the medical practice, because for our poor people a 10 Euro fee for accessing the physician is much money. Thus doctors are increasingly confronted with rotten bodies, because people saved money at the disadvantage of their health?


State interests and the search for happiness and soul are never companions on the same way, and each insight is diluted, it is only a matter of time, or...?
