What Is Hiroshima Day?
During World War II, on 6th August 1945, United States of America dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima (a city in Japan). The American B-29 bomber dropped the bomb and killed more than 80,000 people with it. Again after three days, there was an attack on Nagasaki (another city in Japan) on 9th August where approximately 40,000 people lost their lives. Japan’s emperor Hirohito described it as “a new and most cruel bomb”. Followed by this, Japan surrendered on August 15,1945. The aim of this bombing was not just to make Japan surrender but also to disable the nation in its fighting ability in years to come.
Significance of Hiroshima Day
Every year, people in every nook and corner of the world pay homage to the people who died in this attack. This day makes people aware about the need to give up wars and have peace. No one can deny the fact that wars are an outcome of politics between nations. Therefore this day also aims at raising efforts to have ‘peace politics’ so as to avoid further wars and devastation.
History of Hiroshima Day
On 6th August, 1945 at around 8:15 am the “Enola Gay” B-29 bomber dropped an atomic bomb called “little boy” above the city of Hiroshima which is 500 miles from Tokyo (the capital city of Japan). The forces dropped 12-15 kilotons of TNT and destroyed five square miles of the city instantly. Blast was done in the morning when people were preparing to reach their workplace or have arrived or were in transit.

The bomb exploded when it was 2000 feet above the ground level of the city and upon its complete impact around 69 percent of the buildings were completely destroyed. There were approximately 90,000 buildings existing in the city before the blast and there were only 28,000 left after the blast. Further around 80,000 people lost their lives during the blast and around 35,000 were seriously injured.
History of Nagasaki Attack
Despite such a mammoth blast at Hiroshima, Japan didn’t surrender but definitely it was handicapped. Grabbing this opportunity, the troops from the United States sent another B-29 Bockscar to destroy the city of Kokura (a city in Japan) as its primary target. But because of the thick clouds present, the pilot was unable to drop the bomb, so he went on to his secondary target which was the city of Nagasaki. Major Charles Sweeney dropped “Fat Man” above the city of Nagasaki at 11:02am on 9th August 1945. The bombing at Nagasaki involved 22 kilotons of TNT and was more powerful than Hiroshima.

The idea of the United States of America behind the bombing at Nagasaki was not to let Japan recover from the blast at Hiroshima and to make the nation completely disabled for wars in years to come.
Surrender by Japan
On 15th August 1945 i.e., six days after the Nagasaki Bombing, emperor Hirohito announced the surrender of Japan via radio broadcast. However the official agreement was signed on 2nd September 1945.
Peace flame park in Hiroshima
There is a park in Japan named ” Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park” where people visit this place to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the attack. There is a Peace flame monument which was lit in 1964. And this flame is still burning that is dedicated to the victims and will continue to until all nuclear bombs and weapons are destroyed from earth.
True Spiritual Knowledge: The Key to Attain Ultimate Peace
In the current scenario, we seem to have forgotten the value of human life and humanity. This is all because of the absence of True Spiritual Knowledge. We are witnessing the decreasing levels of humanity from the past 70-80 years but aren’t able to recognize why it is so. Because this is a place of Satan (Kaal Brahm) in which we are living and is full of problems. This is no less than a cage to us experiencing the agony of birth and death into 84 lakh species of animals. Our souls are not free and are entrapped by Satan Kaal Brahm who is giving us birth and death in different sorts of bodies.
We Are in the World of Satan
We are served as food to Satan after our deaths and are forced to acquire some other body after the death. And because of our lack of awareness, we seem to be considering it as final that this only exists as we didn’t have any alternative to this. But now we have one.
We are not from this place, we belong to an eternal place called Satlok. That eternal place is free from birth and death and free of every such problem we are experiencing here whether physical, mental, financial or any sort of problem. Satlok is a place where we can get Ultimate peace and can meet Supreme God Kabir- Our Real Father. Even Holy Scriptures suggest the same, Holy Geeta ji from Hindu mythology chapter 18 verse 62 suggests us to go in refuge of that Complete God Kabir by His Complete Saint to attain Ultimate peace and Satlok.
Holy Geeta ji chapter 18 verse 62 :-
Tam′, ev, sharnam′, gachchh, sarvbhaaven, Bharat,
Tatprsaadaat′, paraam′, shaantim′, sthanm′, prapsyasi, shaashvatam′ ||
Translation:-Oh Bharat! You, in every respect, go in the refuge of only that Supreme God. By the grace of that Supreme God only, you will attain the supreme peace and the everlasting place (dhaam/lok) i.e. Satlok..
Ultimate Peace Lies Only in Satlok
Satlok is the place of permanent happiness and is the place where a soul can meet the Eternal God Kabir. For that purpose Supreme God Kabir descends Himself down to this place of Satan(Kaal Brahm) to make us aware about the True Spiritual Knowledge so that we can attain salvation with ease and reach Satlok.
Currently He has descended Himself in the form of Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj from Haryana Who is proving with His divine acts that He is indeed God Kabir. Gracious God Kabir by this medium has given us the actual mantras in accordance with chapter 17 verse 23 of Holy Geeta ji to be chanted to attain salvation and reach Satlok. Not only salvation, even all the comforts required here whether in the form of money, facilities, etc will also be given by God Kabir as per the requirements.
Upon seeing such tremendous and authentic knowledge and the results He is possessing with His method of worship, one should not waste his time and take Naam Diksha (initiation) from Him to make human birth successful by attaining salvation. Kabir Saheb says in His sacred verses:
Manush janam paye kar jo nahi rate Hari Naam |
Jaise kuua jal bina fir banwaya kya kaam ||
