Asian Union

   Since pre-historic times, this vast Asiatic landmass has been home to a multitude of different tribes, ethnic stocks and nations. Except for brief spells of great empires of Chandragupta Maurya, Asoka, Samudragupta, Akbar and British, generally these people politically have been independent with their own social institutions and customs. But they all always have been culturally something like a homogeneous confederation of political units. Inhabitants of this confederation of nations have, by and large, been practicing in their lives certain universal virtues (like loyalty to truth and honesty in both temporal and spiritual matters, courage even to the extent of defying death to fulfill one’s commitments, again in both temporal and spiritual matters, and generosity of heart in daily life towards friends and foes alike) that gave them a similarity of culture.

  Though this landmass had political centre of gravity sometime at Pataliputra or Kandhahar and sometime at Purushpur or Kannauj, which places today lie in modern India (a name that is rooted in the river ‘Sindhu’), Pakistan and Afghanistan, it always had its fringe nations that were located very far away from the centre. And, then this vast Asiatic landmass had included among its people many tribes and nations like Yusufzai, Sacae, Bactrians, Scythians, Sydracai, Getae, Agasthyrsi, Ashva, Takshak, Ariaspas, Massagetae, Medes etc. whose progeny today inhabit modern day Afghanistan, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhistan, Ajerbejan, Samarkand, Bokhara and many more countries.

  Is it possible for these ancient Asian people to build upon their common heritage a union that may be more intimate and cohesive than a mere political union? Is it possible if one or more of these nations do not cherish any ambition to form such an Asian union to leave them alone, for the time being, and take tentative initial steps towards forming of such union of the remaining ones?

In the unipolar world of today such a unity is much needed to correct the course of humanity and help it in the right direction. The history of these peoples – peoples of Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Nepal, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Sri Lanks, Japan, China, Bhutan, Iran etc. – uncovers a common foundation that lies buried in their past. There is a common principle – reflected in the Wisdom of the East – already present and governing their  lives. This common foundation and this common principle are rare things, which are still preserved by this part of humanity, and offer an opportunity in today’s tumultuous unipolar world for their eventual unification in a broader Asian political union. These peoples are spiritually the most advanced ones on Eart. Though thay are faced like the other parts of humanity, by the materialist blizzard of today, their lives founded on the spiritual wisdom of the East are more than a match for this human-menace. By forging a political unity these peoples can do what others cannot do, simply because these others have no inkling of what can be achieved on human evolutionary path. By forging such a unity founded on the wisdom of the East, they can bring a revolution, a revolution that is unparalleled in human history, paving the way for the next evolutionary jump.
