How did the knowledge of great weapons like Bramhastra got lost in Hinduism tradition? As can be seen in Ramayan and Mahabharat, Gurus used to give knowledge of weapons to their shishya which were then used to protect Dharma. But eventually this knowledge was lost and Bharat couldn't fight invaders. How did this happen? Why weren't Devas invoked through yajnas when Sanatan Dharma followers were ethnically cleansed at the rate of millions by foreign invaders? At time of Mahabharat Indra himself helped Arjuna by granting him weapons. What happened now?

  • I have read 1000's of books including vedas,puranas,upanishad,tantras,maths and scientific ones and what i understand is that the entire existence is complete 0 which is the universal egg.And when spreaded lead to - and + values which when summed up has total value of 0.So to maintain the 0 their should always be - values too along with the + one's.So their can't be always fruits their must always be bad too.This four yuga cycle ensures that.Everything is karma – Pravin RGMishra Mar 10 at 7:58

    What makes you think all those shastras are real in the first place? Once you realize they are all mythological weapons, the question How did the knowledge of those "weapons" got lost? doesn't even arise. – sv. Mar 11 at 18:18

    @sv I cannot see the past but I used shabda praman to reach that conclusion. – Lokesh Mar 12 at 4:18

    @sv Yes, I trust the series of events mentioned in our itihas (history). – Lokesh Mar 13 at 1:32
