Cataclysms Hinduism Human Migration Series 1

In Hinduism on August 13, 2014 at 09:17

This is in continuation of Human migration in the world.

 

This, based on Vishnu Purana, briefly explains the cataclysmic events that struck/strike the earth.

 

 

Earth becomes habitable after this.

 

It is worth noting that Hinduism believes in te Nn Linear theory of Time, tat is the Cyclic Theory, which means that there is nor beginning and no end and that Time is eternal;as such events keep on happening with regularity.For more read my post Time, Non Liner,Cyclic.

 

There are three type of  cataclysms described in the Vishnu Purana, all the Puranas declare the same, with no variations.

 

1.Naimithika Pralaya.

 

This takes place at the end of Lord Brahma‘s Day, One Kalpa.

 

This happens after one Maha Yuga, that is one Chatur Yugas, each Yuga cycle containing Four Yugas,Kruta,Tretha,Dwapara and Kali.

 

This is equivalent to 4.32 billion human years.

 

At the end of this period dissolution starts.

 

During the last Hundred Years(Human), there will be severe Drought.

 

Living Beings shall become ver weak.

Lord Vishnu, in the form of Rudra unsettles the Living Beings.

 

The Seven rays of the Sun become too long(Infrared?)

 

Water will be sucked out of the earth.

 

The seven rays are.

 

Aarohan,

Praajan,

Pataran,

Pathangan,

Swanaran,

Jyothishman and

Vibhaasan.

The world shall be enveloped in fire.

Excepting evolved souls all others shall perish.

 

Of the evolved souls, Brahma Gnanis shall reach Brahma Loka through Satya and Thapo Loka.

The ruling class of Manu dynasty, shall go first toMahar Loka:finding tat to be too hot, they shall reach Jana Loka along with Mahar Loka residents.

 

This is naimithika Pralaya.

 

2.Prakrutha  Pralaya.

 

This takes place at te end of Brahma’s Life cycle.

 

This is two parathas, equivalent to 10 to te power of Eighteen years(Human)

 

That is at the end of 200.000,000,000,000,000 Years.

 

Current estimate of Earth.

 

The Earth is a little over 4.5 billion years old, its oldest materials being 4.3 billion-year-old zircon crystals. Its earliest times were geologically violent, and it suffered constant bombardment from meteorites. When this ended, the Earth cooled and its surface solidified to a crust – the first solid rocks. There were no continents as yet, just a global ocean peppered with small islands. Erosion, sedimentation and volcanic activity – possibly assisted by more meteor impacts – eventually created small proto-continents which grew until they reached roughly their current size 2.5 billion years ago. The continents have since repeatedly collided and been torn apart, so maps of Earth in the distant past are quite different to today’s.

 

 

So there are Four Cataclysmic events involving Water on the Earth and let us see how this is reflected in Tamil and Sanskrit literature.

 

There is a major differnce between Naimithika Pralaya and Prakrutha Pralaya.

 

I shall be posting on this in detail.

Human Migration World History India

In History on August 12, 2014 at 19:16

I have often wondered about terms like Domicile and migration.

Human migration.png

Human migration.png

 

If we understand History and follow it, we shall know that no one can claim to be a domicile of any place!

 

The movement of Humans from prehistoric times is so complex and changing, it is impossible to say who was in one place first.

 

Whenever we read History of Human migration we find that when people move from one place,it is stated that they mixed with the people in that place.

 

How did these people come to be there?

 

And from where?

 

If migration takes place it has to be from one place to another.

 

The place from where they moved from, how did they arrive there at the first place?

 

European History says that Asia served as a sort of reservoir for Humans to migrate from.

 

How did they come to be there at all?

 

European history says, in migration, people came in waves from Asian, through the Urals and Russia, through the landmass of mideast .

 

The group that came through Russia settled down and mingled with people over there.

 

The other group .

 

The first wave settled in Spain Pyrenees, North of Africa, in England,Scotland and Wales,and in Gaul.

 

The second wave settled in Bulgaria, Hungary

 

The third wave Huns, settled finally in Germany, after raiding all the ethnic groups settled before them.

 

Then there were the Vikings who raided the Gauls, Anglo-Saxon.

 

However all the information here are theories.

 

There is yet another theory that states that people migrated from Africa.

 

Curious is that while the west acknowledges that The Vedas are the first Literature of Mankind and were in existence at least from 5000 BC

no body bothers to check the refernces found in the Vedas , Puranas, and Ithihasas on people, culture and places.

 

There is another Language and civilisation found in India which is as old as the Vedas .

 

Tamil.

 

Tamil literature is at least 500o years old.

 

Puranas quote Tamils, Tamil Kings.

 

Ramayana and Mahabharata do the same.

 

References are found in Sanskrit Literature, Tamil Literature  ,Vedas Puranas ,Ramayana and Mahabharata about people and places which are now Europe, US,Africa, Russia,

 

Middle east, Iran, Southeast Asia, Polynesia .

 

These references are not used, I presume, it hurts the pride of these scholars to accept India as a the cradle of Human Civilisation.

 

So overwhelming are the artifacts and archeological finds, they have to grudgingly accept Indus Valley civilisation!

 

They are yet to accept the Sarasvati Valley Civilisation.

 

The Tamil civilisation is totally ignored as also the influence of this culture in Huan Migration in world History.

 

I have also noticed a curious fact,

 

Hindu,Indian Religious, Cultural artifacts and archeological finds are found all over the world.

 

I have quite a few posts on this under Hinduism.

 

But not a single artifact or archeological find has been found in India relating to History or culture or Religion of the other civilisations in the world which predate Vedic period or Tamil culture.

 

I shall be examining the concept of Human migration from Dravida to rest of the world, including the Sarasvati Valley civilization.

 

This will be with help of Vedas, Puranas,Ramayana, Mahabharata, Tamil and Sanskrit Literature.

 

 

 

 

Where Is The Reference To The Bible

In Hinduism on August 6, 2014 at 18:03

India and Hinsuim is pilloried for its tardiness in maintaing its History.

 

There  are no historical references, no continuity in Indian History nor any official crdible History.

 

This is the view among most of the Indians, that most of Indian History is a fable.

 

The west is not far from holding this view.

 

Is this a Fact?

 

Let us look at some facts.

 

1.References of Hindu Epics and The Veda are found in the literature that existed in the corresponding period where/when they came  into existence.

 

I have not used the term written as the Vedas, it is believed were not written and they were transmitted orally over Five Thousand Years.

 

 

The Mahabharata refers to the Ramayana.

 

 

The Puranas refer to both Ramayana and the Bible, not to speak of the Vedas.

 

All the literary works in India refer to the Vedas, Ramayana and the Mahabharata.

 

These are works belonging to the years before Christ.

 

2.Post Christ Era.

 

All the works in India refer to all of these at least in the two languages I know, Sanskrit and Tamil, of these Tamil is at least 500 year old.

 

Tamil works of the Sangam period which are t least 500 years older than the Bible quotes the Hindu Epics and the Vedas.

 

Old Testament.jpg

Old Testament.

 

One of the major tools in determing the existence of a Literay work or event is the cross refernce in the  Text, refernce to it by works of the same period

and its refernce to it at least in the earliest succeeding work.

 

Hinduism fulfills these tests.

 

What about the Bible?

 

Bible is taken so seriously that people have fixed even time scale on Christ!

 

Has the Bible been referred to in the works of the same period or in the period immediately succeeding it?

 

I do not seem to find it anywhere.

 

Excepting Bible refrences in the non Cannonical texts of the Bible.

 

All the cannonical texts are taken as  a part of the Bible.

 

This is like Ramayana proving Ramyana in itself!-by taliking about it in The Ramayana.

 

And the Hebrew Bible called Hebrew Bible, also known as the Tanakh by Jews, is the earliest refernce to The Bible.

 

And the Tanakh is dated at  2 Century BC, that is 200 Years before Christ!

 

4.

“Perhaps the most obvious way that the Bible has inspired writers can be seen in the ways that works of literature actually retell stories found in the Bible. John Milton’s Paradise Lost, for example, retells the biblical fall of man in a long, epic poem, including Satan’s rebellion against God and Adam and Eve’s expulsion from Eden.

Similarly, John Steinbeck‘s East of Eden is roughly structured around the biblical story of Cain and Abel. Another example can be seen in C.S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Following the biblical story of God as the all-powerful savior, Lewis uses the Bible to create parts of his plot,   by especially with the return of King Aslan, which parallels Jesus’s return.

Other writers take images in the Bible and expand on them or use them as a setting, such as Dante, who used the Bible’s description of the afterlife to create an epic 3-volume poem that explores Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven, titled the Divine Comedy.”

 

 

And Dante’s period is  1265–1321 !, full 1200 Years after Christ.

 

Why there is no reference to The Bible at all in the earlier works between the Bible and the Divine Comedy?

 

 

Perhaps there was no literature!

 

3.The Bible should have been referred to corresponding literature of the same period.

 

I do not find any reference at all.

 

Now which History is credible?

 

Hinduism where Rama’s and Krishna’s dates have been proved,places mentioned have been identified, refernces to them are found every where in Indian Literature,in Japan,Cambodia, Laos,Lanka, Russia, Italy,Americas,and Africa or

 

The Bible and the western History?

Hanuman Vanaras Are Neanderthals Of India

In Hinduism on July 18, 2014 at 19:59

Recently I have been going through the Geological characteristic of Europe and its History.

 

The essence is.

 

1.Asia remained as reservoir of all races moving in to Europe.

 

2.For reasons not very known’ Humans started pushing towards Europe, this is presumed to be due to a cataclysmic event like flood or long dry periods.

 

3.Access to Europe was easy as the Russian plains were there to cross over effortlessly.

 

4.The complex structure of European geological features made these groups entering into Europe to become small groups settling n pockets.

 

The Basques settled in the North of Pyrenees, Celts in Wales,Ireland and north-west of Scotland,Lombard in Italy,

 

In the Fourth Century AD, out of Asia came the Huns,predecessor of Germans),Tatars.

 

Later came the Magyars, who are in Hungary,Bulgar in Bulgaria .

 

Neanderthal Man.jpg

Neanderthal Man.

 

 

Then came the Turks.

Hanuman.jpg

Hanuman.

 

All from Asia!

 

Unsettling fact is that these groups seem to have displaced the existing groups in these areas!

 

Who are they and where did they come from?

 

I shall discuss this later and now proceed to Vanaras and Neanderthals.

 

Though it is accepted fact that the migration started from Asia into Europe,there seems to be no evidence of Neanderthal type of man in India.

 

The reason could have been a cataclysm like great fire or Flood.

 

Europe  did not witness such a cataclysm.

 

Hence the remains of such type of evidence has not been found as it might be deep down the water  or incinerated, the remains might be charred and

need  detailed investigation.

 

But, as I have been maintaining  my posts, there is this obsession to follow the History(?) of Europe through European sources, when these sources quote Asian/Indian resources for their first migration !

 

The earliest Epic of Mankind, The Ramayana gives a clear description of the type of Species.

 

Valimki states that when Rama decided to attack Ravana He gave a call through  Sugreeva.

 

The Vanaras came from  all the places from Madhya Pradesh,South India, and from the place ‘where the Sun always shines or always sets”

 

The last one is Polar regions.

 

Valmiki also mentions that the Vanaras were dominant in South India, they were concentrated in Kishkinta, they had high foreheads and features (resembling the Vanaras), and they lived in caves.

 

One can find these warren of Caves in the remains of Hampi which was earlier Kishkinta.

 

Vanaras  meansVan( forest) and Naras, man like beings in Forests.

 

In Mahabharata Lord Krishna says the Species to which Jambhavan belonged was near extinct( one must remember Jambhavan appears, along with Hanuman in both Ramayana and Mahabharata).

 

The description of Jambhavan in the Ramayana resembles the Yeti.

 

Some Indologists speak of these being s having lived in South India 5,00, 000 years ago!

 

Neanderthals  could speak and reason out, though the later point is being disputed .

 

One needs to analyse the Kishkinda Kanda of Ramayana.

 

It seems to me that Hanuman and Vanaras belonged to the equivalent of what is known as Neanderthal in the west.

 

Indian Neanderthal ( why can’t we call the species as Vanaras)  are the Vanaras and they populated the South India.

 

When one looks at the records of the ancient History of Tamils, one would find references to species like this and one should not forget Lemuria!

Ancient India Maps With Kumari Kandam

In Hinduism, Tamils on July 11, 2014 at 13:20

While Scholars of the West and some Indians are prepared to accept Homer’s Iliad and Odysseus, the City of Troy, the same courtesy is not extended to Indian Sources,Puranas and Tamil Litrature.

 

Evidence pointing the existence of  Kumari Kandam , a Super continent  abounds in Tamil Literature .

 

Sanskrit texts allude to this.

 

The Sankalpa of Hindus say, Bharathak Kande’ not Kumarik Kande.

 

That there was a very rich culture in existence , south of Vindyas and that they had close relationship with Sanatana Dharma is evident.

 

Mahabharata quotes a list of  Tamil Kings who attended Draupadi’s Swayamvara.

 

The Tamil kings are named in the marriage ceremony of Lord Rama.

 

In Damayanti’s Swayamvara, the Tamil Kings are named.

 

Tamil literature , especially Silappathikaram, Manimekalai has copious references to Kumari Kandam.

 

Combining both Sanskrit and Tamil Histories together, research has been done and it  proves the existence of Kumari Kandam.

 

Maps of India at different ancient periods are as followed.

 

India with Sea levels in ancient periods.png

India with Sea levels in ancient periods.

India with Kumari Kandam 16,000 BCE.png

India with Kumari Kandam 16,000 BCE.

 

16,000 BCE:- The sea level rose from – 130 meters to -120 meters (10 meters in the 3500 years since 19,500 BCE). The Central Indian Ridge (CIR) – Sumatra – Diffuse plate boundary of Indian plate falls through Kumari Kandam. It is a region with anomalous seismic activity and is part of the Chagos Anomalous Seismicity Region. Due to this inter-plate deformation, the surface elevation in Kumari Kandam region dropped. As a result to the combined effect of the sea level rise and the surface elevation fall, Kumari Kandam started submerging.

India 14,000 BCE.png.

India 14,000 BCE,14,000 BCE:- Due to the combined effect of sea level rise and surface elevation drop more parts of Kumari Kandam submerged leaving many islands. Ten-Madurai city probably survived as an island. By 14,000 BCE, the sea level again rose 10 meters (-120 m to -110 m, in 2000 years). We cannot rule out floods, because sea-level rise was never gradual. It contained occasional sudden rise and gradual rise at other times.

India 9600 BCE.png

India 9600 BCE.9,600 BCE:- The southern stretch of Kumari Kandam is all gone. Ten-madurai city is now submerged. Kapatapuram / Kavaata is the new cultural center of Kumari Kandam which exist to the southern tip of what is left of Kumari Kandam. Sea level is now at -60 meters. In 4500 years since 14,000 BCE, sea level rose by 50 meters with two major rises interspersed with gradual rise.
