India and China

Geography of Ancient China: To understand the history of China, one must first understand what the geographical area of ​​China was, because what we currently call China actually includes parts of Tibet, Taiwan, Mongolia and Turkmenistan. In ancient times, there was no border of any region from China with India. According to Indian contexts in ancient times, China was called Harivarsh, which was one of the 9 major countries of the Jambudweep. At present there were 9 countries of Jambudweep, out of which 3 were – Harivarsha, Bhadrashava and Kimpurush. Combining the above three countries, today this place can be called China. However, some parts are in Nepal, Tibet.

Only 500 to 700 BC, China was considered as a region of ancient and prehistoric. In many places it is also indicated by the name of Kamarupa. There is a mention of Pragjyotish (Pur) province of India in the Maha Mahabharata conference. However, according to some scholars, Pragjyotish was known as present-day Assam (all the 8 provinces of North East). The territory of these provinces also included much of China.

In the Ramayana Balakand (30/6), there is a mention of the establishment of Pragjyotish. In the Vishnu Purana, another name of this province is found to be Kamarupa (Kimpurush). It is clear that since the Mahabharata period from the Ramayana period, the region from Assam to Sichuan province of China must have been Pragjyotisha, also known as Kamarupa. It was later renamed.

Later, China became China and Pragjyotishpur remained as Kamrup. This Kamarup has also been divided into many countries. The word ‘China’ from Kamrup disappeared and the word ‘Maha’ in Mahachina was removed.

Until the time of the Chinese travelers Xuanzang and Alberuni, Kamrup was once called China and ancient China as Mahachin. Kautilya, the author of Economics, has also used the word ‘China’ only for kamrup. From this it can be inferred that the province of Kamarupa or Pragjyotish was spread from Assam to Burma, Singapore, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Java, Sumatra in ancient times. That is, it was a separate region in which almost half of the area of ​​present China comes.

China’s Mythological Relationship with India: Sri Krishna once visited this huge province. This is an incident when Shishupala burnt Dwarika in his absence. In the sabhaparva (68/15) of the Mahabharata, he himself says – ‘During the period of our Pragjyotishya Pur’s stay, our aunt’s son Shishupala burnt Dwarika.

According to mythological mention, the commercial and cultural relations of the two countries have been there since ancient times. At that time China’s silk industry was famous all over the world. It was due to China that the Shilk Route was built. Chinese paper and silk cloth were sold in India. In the context of Mahabharata, there is mention of insects and pattas in relation to China. It is also said that in Yudhishthira’s Rajsuya Yagna, many residents of the northwestern regions (Shaka, Tushar, Kank, Romash etc.) brought silk cloth as a gift.
It is mentioned in the Sabha festival of Mahabharata that the Chinese are mentioned with their powers. Similarly, in the Bhishmaparva of Mahabharata, there is also a mention of the residents of China in the list of foreigners.

China and Buddhism:

China has a very ancient relationship with Buddhism in India. It should be said that China has promoted Buddhism the most. China has given Buddhism a new Chinese form. Buddhism entered China during Lord Buddha’s time, but it was widely publicized during the time of Emperor Miganti of Han dynasty of China (65 AD). It is said that he saw Gautama Buddha in his dream and after that he sent his messengers to India to bring Buddhist monks and Buddhist texts from India. For this, the monks of India Dharmaraksha and Kashyapamatang came to China with many texts and Buddha statues with them and thus Buddhism was established there.

After this, Fahyan in the fourth century and Yuvanchwang visited India in the late sixth century, after understanding Buddhism very well, he left here with thousands of texts and widely spread Buddhism in China. It is also said that when Hieun Tsang traveled to India, he came to Mahabalipuram and it was here that he gathered information about Buddhism. The Buddhists of China at that time considered India as their holy land and the greatest cultural center of the world. For them, India was like Mecca and Medina at that time. India was once more than heaven for China, but since the Communist Party took power in China, the people of China were cut off from India.

Bodhi Dharmana and China:

Bodhi Dharmana or Bodhidharma was a Buddhist monk. Bodhidharma was born in the Raj family of Kanchipuram in the Pallava state of South India. He was the third son of Raja Sugandha of Kanchipuram. He left the kingdom at a young age and became a beggar. At the age of 22, he attained sambodhi (the first state of salvation). Buddhism expanded into China, Japan, and Korea through Bodhidharma.

Going to China in 520-526 AD, he laid the foundation of the Dhyan sect in China called Chien or Zen. He is said to have taught China martial arts and kung fu which is called kalarippayattu, kalaripayattu or kalaripayattu in India. Bodhi religion was knowledgeable in Ayurveda. He was the one who saved the people of China from the epidemic at that time. It was Bodhi Dharman who taught China to make tea by making a cup of tea by inventing a plant called tea.

Bodhidharam was the twenty-eight guru among the Indian gurus. Lord Buddha told Mahakashyapa the knowledge of Buddhism. Mahakashyapa followed this knowledge with pleasure and thus came to Bodhidharma. Bodhidharma was the twenty-seventh guru of the said knowledge and guru-disciple tradition. Bu-ti, the then king of northern China, was inspired by a Bodhidharma. At the invitation of Bu-ti, Bodhidharma met him in Nan-king. Staying here for nine years, Bodhidharma propagated meditation. The first disciple and successor of Bodhidharma was named Shan-kkung, whom he named Hui-ke after becoming a disciple. Previously he was a follower of Confucianism and had around 500 disciples. He came to become his disciple after hearing the fame of Bodhidharma.

King of China:

According to the Chinese traveler Xuanzang (629 AD), before this period in this Kamarupa province, Kamrup had been ruled by 1,000 kings of the same clan for a long time. If a king is given 25 years to rule on an average, then the rulers of the same clan ruled Kamrup for 25,000 years. British historians never bothered to discover the 25,000-year-old history of the Kamrup region.

The Mongols, Tatars, and Chinese are believed to be Chandravanshi. Of these, the people of Tatar call themselves descendants of Ay, it was Ayu, the son of Ay Pururava. (Pururava is the ancestor of the lunar dynasties in ancient times, in which the Kauravas were from Kuru and Kuru). In this age lineage, the emperor Yadu was born and his grandson was Haya. Chinese people call this hay as hayu and consider it their ancestor.
According to another belief, the origin of ‘Yu’ is written to the people of China in such a way that a star (Tatar) congregation was formed with Yu’s mother. This is what happened to Yu. It is similar to the story of Buddha and Ila. Thus the Ayat of the Tatars, the Yu of the Chinese and the Age of the Myths are the same person. All three of these were Adipurush Moon and they are Chandravanshi Kshatriyas.

Dynasty of China:

In China’s two thousand year old feudal history, respectively, the Wun Chien was the Golden Age of the West Han Dynasty. During this time China made a lot of progress. The Thank dynasty’s Janquun and Khayunn’s rule was also better after Han Wuxi’s reign of this dynasty. After this, the era of the Min Dynasty and the Khang Yue of the Ching Dynasty were also called the Golden Age. In this, Khayunn and Khang Yin Chyan era became the most famous. After this, the Western Chao dynasty also became very famous.
