Hitler was an Aryan! What is the heaven this? You may ask many questions as you often hear so many questions regarding this. Here in this article, we will try to know whether he was an Aryan or not.
Brahma of glory is he to whom both the Aryans and dasas belong. (Rig Veda)
The term Arya is used 36 times in 34 hymns in the Rig-Veda. The term Aryan was borrowed by the linguist Max Muller from the Sanskrit word Arya, because he believed that “Aryan” or a similar word was the name of the earliest speakers of Indo-European gave to themselves, which had been preserved in the languages of India and Iran, but not by their relatives who went into Europe.
The ideology of Nazism was based upon the conception of the Aryan race or Germanic people being a superior race. Hitler had no links with Hinduism or the vedas directly but we cannot deny that he was inspired by the Aryan race and some of Vedic symbols. Hitler’s conception of the Aryan race explicitly excluded the vast majority of Slavs, regarding the Slavs as having dangerous Jewish and Asiatic influences.
Hitler described Slavs as “a mass born slaves who feel the need of a master”. It was widely believed that the Vedic Aryans were ethnically identical to the Goths, Vandals and other ancient Germanic peoples. Also for the record, while Hitler’s hair was dark brown, he did, in fact, have blue eyes. But he created his own ideologies and tried to force that on others which were not taken from any Vedic scriptures. The Vedic scriptures say ‘Vasudhaiba Kutumbakam” which means “The whole world is my family’ and hence the Vedic ideology was not adopted by Hitler.
Now some European philosophers derived the term “Aryan” and made a racial group of people having tall bodies and blue eyes which are too far from the real meaning of “Aryan”. Aryan is derived from Arya which means the sons of sages who believe in the Vedas.
Hitler claimed himself as an Aryan and he also made the “Swastika” symbol as the symbol of Nazism. Swastika is considered as an auspicious symbol in Vedas which is used in various holy rituals. Hitler had many friends from India and he always admired Hinduism though he had his own ideas.
Heinrich Himmler, the person ordered by Adolf Hitler to implement the final solution or the Holocaust, told his personal masseur Felix Kersten that he always carried with him a copy of the ancient Aryan scripture, the Bhagvad Gita, because it relieved him of guilt about what he was doing.
Hitler was an Aryan no doubt about that but what he did was against the ideology of Aryans still many people believe him as a man of discipline.
