I am not competent enough to judge your assessments. I concur with what you have said. The Upanishads mention the city of Gandhara. If I were to be in Gandhara today, I'd probably be shot dead for being a Vaidik. This is old news but I am not sure if it is even true but in Tamil Nadu, priests were harassed and their yajnopavitas were snapped by the locals. Would anyone prefer to stay in a place like this?

Yes, I am in complete agreement with you. mAta and mAtru bhumi most sacred on this earth. But my contention is with regard to labelling some other’s mAtru bhUmi as something mere bhOga bhUmi not fit for mOksha / karma etc. especially when the mAtru bhumi boundary ( which we are sticking now) itself debatable since it is time bound distinguished area!! And we have the ‘jagad’ guru/s, who are there to guide all sincere sAdhaka-s on the mother earth. Under these circumstances, can we bifurcate mother earth like some part of her is only good for bhOga and some other part naming it as bhArata and declare it as karma / mOksha bhUmi?? Is it so difficult for us to find only bhOga place in bharata khanda when ‘red light areas, unrestricted beach areas’ etc. are abundant !!?? Likewise is it so difficult to see serene and purified divine atmosphere, exalted souls, sincere mumukshu-s / sAdhaka-s at foreign country to label it completely as mere bhOga bhUmi?? Kindly let me know if there is anything wrong in my way of thinking.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
