Aliens Ramayana Mahabharata Hinduism

In Hinduism on November 15, 2014 at 09:29

Eric Von Daniken has written a couple of books on Aliens saying that the Aliens visited the Earth, Modified our genes and are monitoring our progress.

 

He theorizes that the Aliens have programmed our genes towards a particular goal and are watching whether the programme is working properly.

 

He also surmises Lord Rama was an Alien.

There are other theories that the aliens have camouflaged themselves in the earth and taken various forms.

 

I shall be posting an article as how the genes have been modified and what the present day scientists think of this theory.

 

I did some research on this subject and have come up with some references to Aliens, Alien Technology in the Ramayana, Mahabharata and the Puranas.

 

In the light of the fact that the Ramayana and Mahabharata have been proved to be not mere stories but facts and are authenticated by Astronomy, archeology and History,one can not wish away the references in the these texts as pure imagination.

 

These references are also backed up by the Puranas or is the other way around?

 

Hinduism and Puranas  describe various forms of Beings.

 

While the descriptions of Rama, Krishna, to cite a few, are Human descriptions, the others like Ravana, the Asuras, Gandharvas, Rakshsas, Nagas, Kinnaras, Kimpurushas.

 

Of these some descriptions come near our present projection of Humanoids.

 

I had posted an article that Hanuman might be a Humanoid, Kumbhakarna , a Robot!

 

The Puranas and the Ithihasas, Ramayana and Mahabharata list,

 

Devas, Asuras, Gandharvas, Yakshas, Rakshasas, Pisachas, Kinnaras, Kimpurushas, Vanaras, Nagas, Suparnas, Vidyadharas, Valkhilyas, Siddhas and Charanas.

 

There is a view that some of these or all of them are tribes.

 

” Devas were further classified into Vasus, Rudras, Maruts, Sadhyas and Adityas. Asuras were similarly divided into Daityas, Danavas, Kalakeyas etc. Among the Daityas were a group called the Nivata Kavachas. However today, we can find the remnants of most of these tribes. Yakshas are found as Yakkas in Nepal, Tibet and Srilanka. Nagas are found as Nagas of Nagaland in eastern India, Nairs and Nagars in southern India. Gandharvas were ancient Gandharas. Pisachas lived in Kashmir attested by the Paisachi languages. Asura-philosophy of hatred towards Devas like Indra is found in the Iranian Veda named Avesta. Kinnaras are found as Kinnaurs in Himachal Pradesh. We also know that people who were considered as humans had interbred with these tribes. Asura Vrishaparva’s daughter became a wife of Yayati and gave birth to sons like Puru. Pandava Bhima had a son named Ghatotkacha upon a Rakshasa women named Hidimba. Ravana himself was a son of sage Visrava and Rakshasa lady Kaikasi. Ravana’s wife Mandodari was an Asura. Ravana had many wives who were Gandharvas. Visrava’s eldest son Vaisravana Kuvera is mentioned as a Yaksha. Thus we can conclude that these tribes were humans but were considered as alien or non-human only in relative terms. We also find that these tribes, today have no memory of them being super human in the past as described by the authors of Mahabharata.”

 

But the point is that there is no necessity for them to declare themselves as Super humans if they have camouflaged themselves to escape identity on the earth.

 

Moreover, the Ithihasas were written later to the events.

 

If these were written by some one who is also an Alien , he would not have disclosed facts about the Aliens.

 

If he were an ordinary human being, he would not have understood them being under camouflage  and therefore the writer described them as they were or as he understood them.

 

“There is also a view that if they were Aliens they would not have been easily accessible for they lived in places that are easily accessible.

If we look at the geographical locations of these tribes, we find that they, at-least for some period of time during their existence, lived in inaccessible regions like mountains and forests and/or lived isolated from the regions of the authors of Mahabharata. Pisachas lived in the mountains of Kashmir. Yakshas, Kinnaras and Kimpurushas lived in high Himalays or in Tibet, cut off from the authors of Mahabharata who lived in the Indo-Gangatic plain to the south of the Himalayas. Gandharvas too lived in the high mountains of Gandhara and only in later stages moved to Saraswati river basin. They also continued to live along with Yakshas in high mountains. Devas lived further north to Yaksha territories, and lied towards the east. The Asuras lived to the west and north of Gandhara. Vanaras lived in the dense forest named Dandaka in the central and south-central India. Rakshasas lived in the mountains of Trikuta (Ravana) and the Himalayas (Ghatotkacha) or in dense forests (Vaka, Kirmira, Hidimba). Thus the attribution that they were non-human or alien was also due to the fact that they were not easily accessible to the writers of Mahabharata and their lives seemed to them to be mysterious”

 

That they were accessible does not necessarily mean that they need not have been Aliens for their purpose had been (?) to be with the earthlings, yet to be away from their midst except when necessary.

 

Also why should a particular Group should stay in a particular region only?

 

Also note the following facts described.

 

” Some examples are explanations about flying vehicles (Vimanas), Arjuna’s travels in a flying chariot across the Himalayas, his visit of the Deva territories (ancient alien base-camp in Tibet?), his battle with the Nivata Kavachas (men in space-suits?), Salwa’s attack of the city of Dwaraka in a flying city named Saubha, the triple space-cities of Asuras that revolved around Earth in three circular orbits that was destroyed by Siva using a single projectile weapon, the flying craft of Uparichara Vasu, the Puspaka-Vimana used by Kuvera, Ravana, Vibhishana and Rama, , Rama’s bridge to Lanka across the ocean, the narration of the birth of Kauravas from the cells of an embryo outside the womb of a women, the narrations about celestial-weapons (Divya-Astras) that unleash high energy in the form of fire (explosions), water (rain), air (storm), the narration about the after effects of such weapons suggestive of the use of a nuclear weapon (nails falling down, regions turning into deserts, death of embryos even in womb), the idea that these weapons are invoked by mantras (voice enabled weapons?) and many more.”

 

We have descriptions of the Astras,which have produced effects similar or more or less identical with the effects of Nuclear  weapons.

 

Read my posts on this.

 

Alien Technology.

 

Extra-terrestrial aliens, in the form of local aliens like the Devas, the Asuras, the Gandharvas, the Yakshas etc interacted with ancient Indians and probably transferred some alien technologies like flying vehicles (Vimanas) and voice-enabled non-nuclear, thermo-nuclear and nuclear projectile weapons (Mantra-invoked celestial-weapons aka Divya-Astras) to them. Did they also assist ancient Indians in creating some wonderful cities? While Indraprastha was built by the Pandavas, a special assembly hall in that city is mentioned as built by Asura Danava Maya who was an architect. The city of Dwaraka is mentioned as built by Deva Viswakarma, who too was an architect. The city of Amaravati belonged to the Devas. The city of Alaka belonged to the Yakshas. The city of Bhogavati belonged to the Nagas. The city of Hiranyapura belonged to the Daitya Nivata Kavachas. All these contained several technological wonders aka illusions.

There is also this strange narration of the birth of Kauravas from the cells divided from an embryonic ball of flesh in artificial environments. This could be a later alien genetic experiment. Though I don’t think the Kauravas were born thus, the narration of this alien genetic experiment might have added to Mahabharata as a later addition and might have used to explain the birth of the Kauravas by later narrators of Mahabharata.”

 

My view is that there have been Aliens and Hinduism describe them.

 

I shall be posting on the Earth as Hollow and that The North and South Poles have openings and people(modern) have traveled through them.

Lord Rama Had Many Wives, Valmiki?

In Hinduism on November 8, 2014 at 17:42

Lord Rama as we know has one wife and he is cited as an example of loyalty in marriage.

I read apiece by Ambedkar on Hinduism ,especially on Lord Rama and Krishna, where he has ridiculed and slung mud at Rama and Krishna.

In my research to answer him on some points, I came across information that the Valmiki Ramayana we are following now is not by Valmiki but the Ramacharita Manas by Tulsidas.

Lord Rama's Coronation.jp

Rama Pattabishekam

This Tulsidas Ramayana, we have been misquoting as Valmiki Ramayana.

Can some one clarify with references?

To my knowledge Rama had only one wife and he had been loyal to Sita.

This issue , in my opinion, is a classic case of taking things out of context.

This sloka is about what Manthara speaks about Rama to Kaikeyi just before Lord Rama’s Coronation, Pattabhisheka.

In her effort to poison Kaikeyi’s mind against Rama, Manthara says that  if Rama was crowned as a King, Bharata’s position would wane:

Kaikeyi’s Daughter in-laws  , wives of Bharata will be unhappy against Rama’s wives.

It may be noted that Bharata was married to Mandavi, daughter of Kusatdwaja(Brother of Janaka, Father of Sita)

Now the fact is that Rama married Sita and Bharata Mandavi.

Now if Manthara is speaking of facts she would have said as wife of Bharata and not as wives of Bharata.

Therefore the efforts of Manthara is to incite Kaikeyi with hyperbole, saying that the wives of Bharata, implying that Bharata might marry again, being a King.

In the same vein Manthara speaks about Lord Rama might have more wives.

Here Valmiki excels.

Though he knew the full Ramayana in advance  from Narada before he started writing it, he never divulges the story in advance.

Valmiki writes in the Ayodhya Kanda,

hR^ishhTaaH khalu bhavishhyanti raamasya paramaaH striyaH |
aprahR^ishhTaa bhavishhyanti snushhaaste bharatakshaye || 2-8-12

12. raamasya= Rama’s; paramaastriyaH= great wives; bhavantikhalu= will become; hR^ishTaaH= delighted; te= your; snushhaaH= daughters-in-law; bhavishhyanti= will become; aprahR^isTaaH= unhappy; bharata kshhaye= of Bharata’s weak position.

“Rama’s wives will get delighted. Your daughters-in-law will be unhappy because of Bharata’s waning position.”

Comment: The words ‘Rama’s wives’ here do not indicate that Rama had multiple wives. Manathara refers to a possible future where Rama being a King would marry other women. It was a norm then for a king to have more than one wife).

(Ayodhya Kanda Chapter 8 Sloka 12)

After this Valmiki Ramayan there were several ramayan written by people afterwards.

All these subsequent ramayan contained story of Valmiki ramayan but with plus and minus. 

It means that subsequent ramayana differed from the original ramayan in several ways. 

But there was only one Ramayan which was written after Valmiki Ramayan 

that became highly popular and that was Tulsidas.

(He was contemporary to King Akbar) written RAMCHARITMANAS. 

So Ramcharitmanas was written 
around 2000 years after original ramayan was written. 

And to give you shock - hold your breath - 

the Ramayan that you know today is NOT the original 
Ramayan written by Valmiki ji rather it is Tulsidas written Ramcharitmanas.

. Shri Ram chandr Ji had several wives apart from seeta. 

Ayodha Kandam 8th Chapter, verse 12 - "Rama's wives will get delighted.

King Sibi Manu Neeedhi Chola Sanatana Dharma

In Hinduism on August 22, 2014 at 11:53

The more one reads Sanskrit Literature,Tamil ,Puranas , Ramayana and Mahabharata, one finds a connection between the Sanatana Dharma and their Dravidian roots.

 

I have posted a few articles on this subject.

Trincomalee Temple.jpg.

Trincomalee Temple.

 

Of Lord Rama’s ancestor having lived in the south and migrated to  Ayodhya to establish the Kingdom.

 

Of a Chera King having participated in the Mahabharata  War,of his having performed Tharpana for  those killed in the Mahabharata war.

 

Of Arjuna marrying a Pandya Princess.

 

There is more,

 

Of King Sibi and Manu Needhi Chola.

 

King Sibi cut his own flesh to for a hawk to save a dove.

 

Many Needhi Cholan ran his son over for  rendering Justice to a Cow.

 

Cholas carry the name Chembian,  Tamil version of Sibi.

 

Sibi is dated  between c 100 C.E. to c. 1250 C.E.

 

Manu Needhi Cholan was also called Ellala’,one who ruled the Boundary’

 

He is reported to have expanded the Koneswaram Temple in Sr Lanka.

 

 

Developed from 205 BC, the original kovil combined key features to form its basic Dravidian temple plan, such as its thousand pillared hall – “Aayiram Kaal Mandapam” – and the Jagati expanded by King Elara Manu Needhi Cholan. Regarded as the greatest building of its age for its architecture, elaborate sculptural bas-relief ornamentation adorned a black granite megalith while its multiple gold plated gopuram towers were expanded in the medieval period.(wiki)

 

Ellalan got the title Manu Needhi Cholan because he has executed his own son to provide justice to a Cow. Legend has it that the king hung a giant bell in front of his courtroom for anyone needing justice to ring. One day, he came out on hearing the ringing of the bell by a Cow. On enquiry he found that the Calf of that Cow was killed under the wheels of his chariot. In order to provide justice to the cow, he killed his own son Veedhividangan under the chariot as a punishment to himself i.e. make himself suffer as much as the cow.[5] Impressed by the justice of the king, Lord Shiva blessed him and brought back the calf and his son alive. He has been mentioned in theSilappatikaram and Periya Puranam.[6]His name has since then been used as a metaphor for fairness and justice in Tamil literature. His capital was Thiruvarur.

Chronicles such as the Yalpana Vaipava Malai and stone inscriptions like Konesar Kalvettu recount that Kulakkottan, an early Chola king and descendant of Manu Needhi Cholan, was the restorer of the ruined Koneswaram temple and tank at Trincomalee in 438 A.D., theMunneswaram temple of the west coast, and as the royal who settled ancient Vanniyars in the east of the island Eelam(wiki)

 

Manu Needhi ruled Sri Lanka as well.

 

References may be found in the Mahavamsa.

 

Buddha Jataka tales also refer to this

Manu Statue In Philippines Assembly Hindu Empire

In Hinduism on August 12, 2014 at 12:02

I am in the process of researching Human immigration in the world.

 

Hindu Deities Philipines,jpg

“Most of the folklore of the Philippines is of Hindu origin.” Sanskrit words are found in abundance in the local languages, indicating deep cultural and linguistic ties. Ramayana is still a popular play in some parts of the country. (image source: Hindu-Buddhist Art of Vietnam: Treasures from Champa – By Emmanuel Guillon)

 

Widely accepted theories are that

 

people migrated from Africa,

 

from south-east of Urals.

 

The movement of people into Europe is from Asia.

 

One wave settled in Spain,Africa.

 

The second wave consisting of Magyars, Bulgars settled in the countries which are called by these names now.

 

Hun wave also started from Asia.

 

The  movement from Urals resulted in Saraswati River valley, which later became the Vedic civilization of Mohenja Daro.

 

I am skeptical of these theories as they do not seem to be backed by adequate evidence.

 

By referring to Puarans, Archelogy.Linguistics and cultural affinity, the movement of humans seem to have been from India, that  too from the South.

 

I have posted some articles on this, under Hinduism

 

Satyavrata Manu, ancestor of Lord Rama, moved from the south to Ayodhya.

 

Please refer my post on this.

 

I am collecting information from the sources mentioned above.

 

I have been posting periodically the evidence of Hinduism and Hindu Culture throughout the world.

 

Now to the information of Hinduism being the first religion of Philippines.

 

Philippines was a part of Sri Vijaya Empire, based at Java.

 

Tamil literature speaks in detail about the  Sri Vijaya Empire and many tamil kings invaded this empire and some them even married princesses,

 

To signify this, Philipines has, Manu’s picture in the National Assembly of Philippines.

 

At present Manila is the capital of the Philippines. In the National Assembly Hall, behind the president’s seat, is a picture of Manu. Manu taught law to the Philippines, hence this picture. This shows the relation of the ancient Hindu culture to the Philippines.

When the Philippines drafted its Constitution, it placed the statue of Manu (the progenitor and lawgiver of the human race) in the National Assembly Hall with this inscription on its base: “The first, the greatest and the wisest law-giver of mankind.” Researches into the racial and cultural origins of the Philippines increasingly prove that it was colonized by some people in South India. In fact, the script of the Filipinos has some obvious similarities with that of South India. “Our dialects belong to the Dravidian family.” says Justice Romualdez. “The names of some places on the shores of Manila Bay and the coast of Luzon show their Sanskrit origin.”..

 

Dr Pardo de Tavera (1857 – 1925) has observed:

“It is impossible to believe that the Hindus, if they came only as merchants, however great their number, would have impressed themselves in such a way as to give to these islanders, the Philippines, the number and the kind of words, which they did give. These names of dignitaries,of caciques, of high functionaries of the court, of noble ladies, indicate that these high positions, with names of Sanskrit origin, were occupied at one time by men, who spoke that language. The words of similar origin, for objects of war, fortresses and battle songs, for designating objects of religious beliefs, for superstitions, emotions, feelings, industrial and farming activities, show us clearly that the warfare, religion, literature, industry and agriculture were at once time in the hands of the Hindus and that this race was effectively dominant in the Philippines.”

 

 

.

In 1990, Antoon Postma, a Dutch expert in ancient Philippine scripts and Mangyan writing, and a long-time resident of the Philippines, translated the document that came to be known as the Laguna Copperplate Inscription (LCI). When he saw that the writing looked similar to the ancient Indonesian script called Kavi, and that the document bore a date from the ancient Sanskrit calendar, he enlisted the help of fellow Dutchman, Dr. Johann de Casparis, whose area of expertise was ancient Indonesia.

Casparis confirmed that the script and the words used in the Laguna document were exactly the same as those that were used on the island Java at the time stated in the document, which was the year 822, in the old Hindu calendar or the year 900 C.E. (Common Era) on our calendar.

In 1996, a Filipino history buff in California, Hector Santos, precisely converted the Sanskrit date over to our calendar by using astronomical software and some historical detective work. He determined that the Sanskrit date written on the plate was exactly Monday, April 21, 900 C.E.

Long Live! Year of Siyaka 822, month of Waisaka, according to astronomy. The fourth day of the waning moon, Monday. On this occasion, Lady Angkatan, and her brother whose name is Buka, the children of the Honourable Namwaran, were awarded a document of complete pardon from the Commander in Chief of Tundun, represented by the Lord Minister of Pailah, Jayadewa.

By this order, through the scribe, the Honourable Namwaran has been forgiven of all and is released from his debts and arrears of 1 katî and 8 suwarnabefore the Honourable Lord Minister of Puliran, Ka Sumuran by the authority of the Lord Minister of Pailah.

Because of his faithful service as a subject of the Chief, the Honourable and widely renowned Lord Minister of Binwangan recognized all the living relatives of Namwaran who were claimed by the Chief of Dewata, represented by the Chief of Medang.

Yes, therefore the living descendants of the Honourable Namwaran are forgiven, indeed, of any and all debts of the Honourable Namwaran to the Chief of Dewata.

This, in any case, shall declare to whomever henceforth that on some future day should there be a man who claims that no release from the debt of the Honourable…
