SATYAM EVA JAYATE
TRUTH EVER TRIUMPHS
The Mundaka Upanishad teaches us, “Victory (Jayam) is ever aligned with the Truth (Satyam), never with Untruth. The (Sadhana) Path to the Divine is through the Truth. The sages with desires quenched walk on that path to reach the Supreme Essence (Sat)” Mundaka Upanishad 3:1:6. Please let us share truthful authentic information widely across the country and the world about the FACTS that can help all human beings confront and defeat the ferocious Pandemic by working hand in hand. Please let us think of highlighting the sharing of truthful information from all levels of the Govt and thought leaders when the Rupee 20 Coin with this Symbol inscribed on it. Please ensure Satyam eva Jayate is inscribed on it. This is secret of the survival and triumph of the Sanatana Dharma based civilization. Jai Hind!

HE Shri Narendra Modi,
Pradhan Mantri Poojya Modi Ji,
I have shared similar reports earlier this year.
I have been researching, archiving, curating, and posting information about the concerns that have become abundant about the safety of the vaccines, the protocols governing administration of the vaccines, the strategies for acquiring and distributing the vaccine right to the end user, the process of setting up appointments and administering the vaccines that received the EUA which is posing barriers to achieving Health Equity. Please share as you see fit especially to Political Leaders and community leaders and or students, research fellows and junior faculty to work on researchable questions. What I am sharing now is the most recent compendium of reports.
Dr. James Hildreth, Ph.D., M.D. President and CEO of Meharry Medical College said: Gaps of trust, supply and access are causing racial disparities in COVID vaccinations. In addition, Dr. Hildreth, who happens to be a member of the FDA's Vaccine Advisory Committee, tells Ali Velshi on MSNBC that to ensure communities of color can access Covid-19 vaccinations, we ought to focus on the " Social vulnerability index,"[SVI] which accounts for socio-economic factors, such as income and education level, as well as race and ethnicity. I concur with this based on my experiences while assisting with Disaster Preparedness, management and being a member of CSMS Disaster Preparedness Committee that utilizing the SVI maps that are already drawn up in many states, we should be able to address the mounting problems with equity in access to the vaccines for persons of color in states where such data exists. I am sharing data on the mounting barriers to access for members that will result in persons in BIPOC communities suffer more losses of life and loss of social role function due to serious and widening gaps in access, supply, and trust.
I had sent a letter with the attachment on the right on 01 23 20 to a few key people including Dr. Soumya Swaminathan about the importance of addressing the inequity built into the no fault coverage CICP during the period of Emergency established when the two currently used vaccines from
1. Pfizer/Biontech and 2. Moderna earned the EUA.
I was astounded that I got a response from the Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, M.B.,B.S., M.D., the very next day. She happens to be the Chief Scientist of the WHO on Sunday 24th. I am looking forward to further interactions for carrying our work in different environments forwards in everyone’s best interests.
I am sending this letter to demonstrate my collaborative efforts even with as high-ranking person as the Chief Scientist of the WHO can be purposeful and interactive in real time during the great turbulence evoked by the Pandemic. I am in communication with Dr. S. Swaminathan to learn more about the No-fault Compensation that is available to people who receive vaccines from the COVX Facility that has broader application in the World. I have corresponded with the top officials in the new Team working on the Pandemic related dire life and death issues.
I am providing foundational material developed over 15 months to assist in formulating policies, and protocols /procedures to protect staff and their families, patients, and their families, and establish strict criteria for validating and securing the reliability of tests and procedures besides availability and accessibility to the tests and efficiency in reporting results consistently.
I am responding to very disturbing data from different sources:
India Coronavirus Map and Case Count - The New York Times (nytimes.com) Total new cases /day 400, 000, that is a staggering 277 new cases per minute, about 5 new cases per second. There are devastating 4,000 total deaths per day, averaging a 2.7 deaths per minute.
India COVID: 21,886,611 Cases and 238,265 Deaths - Worldometer (worldometers.info) 400,000 Total new cases per day. 4,000 Total Deaths per day
India’s COVID-19 death rates are at least five times higher than reported numbers, reaching about 10,000 per day, said Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of Brown University’s School of Public Health at a press briefing April 27.
I have offered these prayers especially when I see images of makeshift cremations with proper rituals and chants. I have chanted these verses from the Isavasya Upanishad [ "If all the Upanishads and all the other Scriptures happened all of a sudden to be reduced to ashes, and if only the first verse in the Ishopanishad were left in the memory of the Hindus, Hinduism would live forever" -- Mahatma Gandhi] at various places including Kedar Ghat and Raja Harishchandra Ghat in hallowed Varanasi, the Killing Fields in Cambodia and after the terrible earthquakes in India and the Tsunami that hit Chennai and after Fukushima. We had Yagnas at our Temple after these catastrophic experiences. When I walk the narrow streets near the Ghats I meditate on the circumstances and teaching of the 4 Maha vaakhyas in the fives verses of the Maneesha Panchakam composed on the spot by Srimad Poojya Govind Bhagvad pada poojya Adi Sankara Acharya.
After preparatory prayers prior to chanting from the Veda: Om. That is full; this is full. This fullness has been projected from that fullness. When this fullness merges in that fullness, all that remains is fullness. Om. Peace! Peace! Peace! [Poornam adaha…]
15. The door of the Truth is covered by a golden disc. Open it, O Nourisher! Remove it so that I who have been worshipping the Truth may behold It.
16 O Nourisher, lone Traveler of the sky! Controller! O Sun, Offspring of Prajapati! Gather Your rays; withdraw Your light. I would see, through Your grace, that form of Yours which is the fairest. I am indeed He, that Purusha, who dwells there.
17 Now may my breath return to all—pervading, immortal Prana! May this body be burnt to ashes! Om. O mind, remember, remember all that I have done.
18 O Fire, lead us by the good path for the enjoyment of the fruit of our action. You know, O god, all our deeds. Destroy our sin of deceit. We offer, by words, our salutations to you.
Om. That is full; this is full. This fullness has been projected from that fullness. When this fullness merges in that fullness, all that remains is fullness.
Om. Peace! Peace! Peace!
Om Saha Nau-Avatu |Saha Nau Bhunaktu |Saha Viiryam Karavaavahai |Tejasvi Nau-Adhiitam-Astu Maa Vidvissaavahai |Om Shaantih Shaantih Shaantih ||
Aum! May He protect us both; may He nourish us both ; May we work collaboratively with great energy,
May our study be vigorous and effective; May we not be mired in disputes. May peace prevail in our mind, body and soul, May peace prevail in the Skies, on the waters and on the bountiful earth
ABCDE is a whole spectrum of resources because this Pandemic in its current Cataclysmic metamorphosis that is ongoing with gathering virulence and withering devastation of life and limb, hearth and home, dismemberment of families into un-recognizable fragments and dissolution of whole communities that previously sheltered its members and offered solace and succor, strength and support, inspiration, and collective insight on how to survive and thrive over time.

D. This is detailed description of the shared origins of all members of the human family. The Corona 19 Virus has conclusively demonstrated all the human race in every corner of every continent are extremely vulnerable and open to its de-predations and why only the concept of Vasudaiva Kutumbukkam can offer a reasonable coherent template to act in the best interests of all members of the Human Race. This extremely resourceful and malicious virus has demonstrated unless the safety of every single member of the Human family is secured.

I offer my deep heartfelt condolences for the horrible irreplaceable losses. My words fail me as I try to collect my thoughts and expresses my thoughts and prayers to assuage the pain of the inconsolable bereavement.
Please feel free to access my resource material especially section 5 as we try to meet the challenges posed by the monumental emotional impact of what is from my perspective a Tsunami of emotions that is surging across America.
Jai, Hind, Jai Kisan, Jai Jawan.
Common be your prayers
Common be your end;
Common be your purpose,
Common be your deliberations.

Unified be your hearts,
United be your intentions;
Perfect be the Union amongst you. RK Veda X,191-3,4
May the wicked become virtuous, May the Virtuous become tranquil,
May the tranquil be freed form bonds, May the liberated let the oppressed go free.
I will take your leave by sharing this great prayer in Sanskrit at the start of the Purusha Sukta, thus follow the exemplary example set by Former Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Atul Behari Vajpayee of Bharat that is India in the United Nations in 1998.
Namo Paramam Rishibhyo, Namo Paramam Rishibhiyaha
Harihi Om! Gurubhyo Namaha.
Om taccham yoravrini mahe
daivi svastirastu naha
urdhvam jigatu bheshajam
sham no astu dvipade
Om shantih shantih shantihi
We worship and pray to the Supreme Lord for the welfare of all human beings. May all miseries and shortcomings leave us forever so that we may always sing for the Lord during the holy fire ceremonies. May all medicinal herbs grow in potency so that all diseases may be cured. May the Gods rain peace on us. May all the two-legged creatures be happy and may all the four-legged creatures also be happy. May there be peace in the hearts of all beings in all realms.
Former Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Atul Behari Vajpayee in the General Assembly of the UN on Sept 24, 1998 at the end of a very important speech.
“I close with an ancient sloka from the Rig Veda composed thousands of years ago in Sanskrit, the oldest language in the World “:
"Svastir Maanushebhyaha, Oordhvam Jigatu bhesajam Sham no astu Dwipade Sham Chatushpade. Om Shanti, Shanti, Shantihi".
Let all human beings be blessed with prosperity, let all flora and fauna which are lifeline of all creatures, grow abundantly, Let there be harmony with all two-legged creations, Let there be harmony with all four-legged creations, Let there be peace, peace, peace. (OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.)
