Lord Rama Was A King of Sumeria King List

In Hinduism on December 8, 2014 at 09:26

The King List which chronicles a list of Kings of Sumeria is written in Sumerian Language.

 

Ancient Sumeria, one of the oldest civilizations flourished in the southern parts of Iraq.

 

In the Kings List, one finds the Dynasties of the Kings of Sumeria with their official locations.

 

It includes the names of Kings of adjoining countries, then called city states

 

The Kingship was believed to be from the Gods and was transferable from one  city to another.

 

Sumeria was believed to have had an hegemony during its period of existence.

 

It is curious to find the name of Lord Rama in the Sumerian King List.

 

Not only Lord Rama but his brother Bharata also find a place in the List.

Fortunately, a study of Sumerian history provides a fairly vivid flesh-and-blood picture of Rama. The highly authentic Sumerian King-list appear such hallowed names as Bharat (Warad) Sin and Rim Sin. Sin was the Moon god Chandra and as the cuneiform symbol for ‘Rim’ can also be read as ‘Ram’, Rim Sin is the same as Rama Chandra. In the Sumerian texts Ram-Sin is said to be from Elam which links him to Indo-Iran. Rama was the longest reigning monarch of Mesopotamia who ruled for 60 years. Bharat Sin ruled for 12 years (1834-1822 BC), exactly as stated in the Dasaratha Jataka. The Jataka statement, “Years sixty times hundred, and ten thousand more, all told, / Reigned strong-armed Rama”, only means that Rama reigned for sixty years which agrees exactly with the data of Assyriologists. Ayodhya may be Agade the capital of Sargon which has not yet been identified. It is possible that Agade was near Der or the Heart near Harayu or Sarayu. Learned scholars like D. P. Mishra were aware that Rama could be from the Herat area. The noted linguist Sukumar Sen also noted that Rama is a sacred name in the Avesta where he is mentioned together with Vayu. Rama is called Rama Margaveya in some texts from which Dr. Sen concluded that he hailed from Margiana. The Cambridge Ancient History contains priceless information relevant to Indian ancient history. The Sumerian records furnish the first date of the Indus era – the war with Ravana took place in 1794 BC. The significance of the fact Ram-Sin’s reign (60 years) was the longest in Sumerian history has been lost on most writers. There are two Ram-Sins in Sumerian history.”…….

 

My researches into the relationship from between the Dravadas (South of Bharata Varsha) and Sanatana Dharam have led me to establish that the ancestor of Lord Rama, Vaivaswatha Manu migrated from Dravida desa because of a Tsunami to Ayodhya to establish a Kingdom.

 

* Seemingly different dates of Rama from the Date of Rama of Ramayana tells another story.

 

Shiva and His sons Ganesha,Muruga left by the Arabian Sea and spread through the Middle East, establishing their lineage en route, Iraq, Africa, Spain,Latin America,North America, Central America before reaching the Arctic where the Rig Veda was composed.

 

Later their descendants traveled from the Arctic through Russia to reach India again.

 

These facts are culled from Tamil Classics Vedas, Sanskrit Literature and cross checked by Astronomical facts mentioned in these texts.

 

More to follow on this subject.

Ancient Greek Ambassador Worshiped Vishnu

In Hinduism, History on December 7, 2014 at 18:01

Hinduism does not advocate conversion.

 

It believes that Religion is a question of personal choice and holds it sacred.

 

It does not believe in numbers game.

 

Hinduism is like a Doctor.

 

If and when you are sick you go to  Doctor.

 

The Doctor prescribes you medicines.

 

He does not force you to take the medicine.

 

It is in your interest to take it.

 

The Doctor is not affected by your action.

 

Hinduism is like the Doctor.

 

It tells you the paths traversed by people who have realized God hood.

 

In the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna explains about the various systems of Hindu Thought to Arjuna.

 

In the last chapter(18),just about to conclude the discourse , informs Arjuna,

 

‘I have told you what is utmost secret.

 

You examine them carefully and follow whatever suits and what your disposition tells You’

 

That’s all.

 

Hinduism is a way of Life.

 

Strictly speaking it is difficult to define who a Hindu is.

 

A Hindu is one who follows certain guidelines of Life and Beyond.

 

Not necessary to have been born a Hindu.

 

One need not believe in God even for Atheism is also accepted as a Faith in Hinduism.

 

However there are certain rules ,qualifications required to study the Vedas, the Sacred Books of the Hindus.

 

Hindus, though not advocating religious Conversion accepts people from the other Faiths .

 

There are no ceremonies involved.

 

Example of this is the worship of Lord Vishnu, by Helidorus, Ambassador to India to Gupta King’s court.

 

He erected a column in tribute to Lord Vishnu and it is called Heliodorous Column.

 

Heliodorous Pillar.jpg

Heliodorous Pillar.

 

It is known that Heliodorus was sent to the court of King Bhagabhadra by Antiakalidas, the Greek king of Taxila. The kingdom of Taxila was part of the Bactrian region in northwest India, conquered by Alexander the Great in 325 B.C. By the time of Antialkidas, the area under Greek rule included what is today Afghanistan, Pakistan and Punjab.(2)

The column erected by Heliodorus first came to notice in 1877, during an archaeological survey by General Cunningham. The inscription, however, went unnoticed, because of the pillar’s thick coating of red lead paste. It had been the custom of pilgrims who had worshipped there to smear the column with vermillion paste. The column, Cunningham deduced from its shape, was from the period of the Imperial Guptas (3) (A.D. 300-550). Thirty-two years later, however, when the inscription was brought to light, it became clear that the monument was several centuries older. (4)..

 

Heliodorous Column.jpg

The Heliodorous inscription on the Heliodorous Column.

 

A reproduction of the inscription, along with the transliteration and translation of the ancient Brahmi text, is given here as it appeared in the Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society.

1)   Devadevasu Va[sude]vasa Garudadhvajo ayam

2)   Karito ia Heliodorena bhaga

3)   Vatena Diyasa putrena Takhasilakena

4)   Yonadatena agatena maharajasa

5)   Amtalikitasa upa[m]ta samkasam-rano

6)   Kasiput[r]asa [Bh]agabhadrasa tratarasa

7)   Vasena [chatu]dasena rajena vadhamanasa

” This Garuda-column of Vasudeva (Visnu), the god of gods, was erected here by Heliodorus, a worshipper of Vishnu, the son of Dion, and an inhabitant of Taxila, who came as Greek ambassador from the Great King Antialkidas to King Kasiputra Bhagabhadra, the Savior, then reigning prosperously in the fourteenth year of his kingship.”

 

1) Trini amutapadani-[su] anuthitani

2) nayamti svaga damo chago apramado

“Three immortal precepts (footsteps)..when practiced lead to heaven-self restraint, charity, conscientiousness.”

From the inscriptions it is seems clear Heliodorus was influenced by Vedic principles that he could be considered to be a Vaisnava, a follower or worshipper of Visnu. Professor Kunja Govinda Goswami of Calcutta University concludes that Heliodorus ” was well acquainted with the texts dealing with the Bhagavat [Vaisnava] relgion.” (6)

Krishna Adisesha Appeared in The Sky ?

In Hinduism on December 6, 2014 at 18:56

While I was writing a Post, the content recommendation by Zemanta suggested a news story by CNN that Lord Krishna appeared in the Sky.

 

I am reproducing the excerpt.

 

My observation is that it is difficult to comment without being present in the spot.

 

May be an Illusion as well.

 

 

“On 15-Feb-2006 at 07-30 hrs I saw snake god Shesha Nag with five heads appearing and moving in the sky. After a few seconds I saw 7 bright stars in a line moving in the sky. Soon all the 7 stars became 7 buds in the sky and they were moving from North West sky to South East sky. On the move all the seven buds were growing and when they reached in front of me all of them stopped in a line. Then the first bud started to become flower and after becoming flower it became a big fish in the sky. It was god Matsya Avatar (fish incarnation of god Vishnu). Then the second bud became flower and soon that flower became god Garuda. Then the third bud became flower and that flower became god Shiva. Then the fifth bud became flower and that flower became god Muthappan. Then the sixth bud became flower and that flower became elephant headed god, Ganesha. Soon the last bud started to become flower and after becoming flower it became a big snake god in the sky. It was snake god Nagadevta. In short one after one all the 7 buds became flowers and all 7 flowers became 7 gods. They were Matsya Avatar, Garud, Shiva, Muthappan, Ganesha, Hanuman and snake god Nagdevta. After 7 minutes all the 7 gods disappeared together in the sky.

Shiva Divine Acts 64 Thiruvilayadal List

In Hinduism on December 6, 2014 at 18:41

As I indicated in my earlier posts, the essential difference between an Avatar of Shiva and Vishnu lies in the fact ,in the case of Shiva, He does not stay in a Womb, called Ayonijaha (though this epithet  is used for Vishnu in the Vishnu Sahasranama, I do not recall any instance where Vishnu seems to have appeared  from nowhere and disappeared), in the case of Vishnu He is born as Humans in a womb, undergoes the trials and tribulations of  a Human Being.

Play of Shiva, Murals in Madutai Meenakshi Temple.jpg

64 Thiruvilayadal,Sacred Play of Shiva, Murals in Madutai Meenakshi Temple.

Probably an Avatar is different from Leela, an Avatar is the coming down of God, Avatara means ‘coming down’,whereas Leela can be translated loosely as ‘play,playful’.

Lord Shiva’s Leelas where He had appeared, done His job and disappeared are mentioned in the Tamil Classics, more vividly in the Thiruvilayadal Purana by Paranjothi Munivar, 6th Century AD.

These Avatars, Leelas of Shiva are 64 in number.

These have taken place in Madurai, Tamil Nadu.

These Avatars are called the Avatars of Somasundara,an amsa of Shiva, and the husband of Meenakshi, an avatar of Goddess Parvati.

Meenakshi Sunadareswarar is in the Madurai Meenakshi Temple.

Other than in the Tamil Classics, Shiva Purana and passing references to some of the instances narrated in the Thiruvilayadal Purana, in the other Puranas,I am unable to find references to these in the Sanskrit works.

One can not brush these aside as figment of Tamil Imagination either as cross references abound Tamil and they are generally trust worthy of facts and there are temple inscriptions which check out with other Historical facts.

The history of the Tamil Kings mentioned in these instances check out .

Considering the fact that the ancestor of Lord Rama migrated from Dravida, there seems to be something I am missing here.

Please refer my Post Rama’s ancestor from Dravida

I am searching.

Some of these instances seem to be prehistoric and may relate to Thenmadurai, where the First Tamil Sangam was held Thenmadurai was swallowed by a Tsunami.

Please read my posts on Tamil Sangam dates.

Readers may send in their inputs with source on this issue.

The 64 instances where Lord Shiva appeared are listed below.

You may read the instances at the link.

Krishna Attended Tamil Sangam Daughter in Madurai

In Hinduism on December 1, 2014 at 08:35

This is  a part of a series of articles on how the Sanatna Dharma and Tamil Dravida was intertwined.

 

Rama’s ancestor Vaivaswatha Manu migrated from Dravida to Ayodhya after a Tsunami.

 

Krishna as a Toddler.jpgLord Krishna attended Tamil Poet summit.jpg

Toddler Krishna

 

Shiva and his son Ganesha  migrated through the Middle east to Arctic, after establishing their lineage, clan in the present Europe,Africa, and the successors reentered Bharata varsha from the Arctic through Russia ,Iran .

 

Valmiki is considered as a Siddha and wrote a literary work Vanmikar Pathinaaru,Valmiki’s Sixteen, which deals with Philosophy and Practical Life.

 

Krishna married a Pandya Princess and had a Daughter through her.

 

Arjuna married a Pandyan Princess and had a son, Babruvahana.

 

Sahadeva traveled in the South.

 

Tamil Chera King,Perunchotru Udiyan Cheralathan fed both the Pandava and Kaurava Armies during the Mahabharata Battle and performed Tharpana in Tamil Nadu, (Rites for Dead killed during the war).

 

Ravana entered into a peace treaty with a Pandya King.

 

Rig Veda and Puranas have references to pieces, Elephant Tusks,Gems, and Pearls being imported from Tamil Nadu /Dravida.

 

Tamil Kings were present during the Swayamwar of Damayanthi, Sita, Draupadi, descriptions of the may be found in the Ramayana ,Mahabharata and the Puranas.

 

I have some articles on this.

 

During the Mahabharata Days the interaction between the South and the North were more intense and frequent than what it was during the Ramayana Period.

 

Lord Krishna attended the Tamil Sangam,Conclave of Poets held at Kavatapuram.

 

He was a special Invitee.

 

“Krishna was known to Tamil lands even during his life time. He had been one of the esteemed guests at the 2nd Sangam assemblage that took place in Kavaatam, the then capital of the Pandyans. Kavaatam’s location can be deciphered from Shugreeva’s description of the trail to the South which he described to the vanaras in chapter 4-41-19a. That place was submerged around the time Byt Dwaraka was submerged.”

 

Krishna married Nappinnai, a Pandyan Princess and had a Daughter Pandyahs, that’s how Megasthanes calls her.

 

Krishna had probably had his daughter married to a Pandya Prince and had her settled near Madurai.

 

Krishna’s daughter had been given a gift of 365 Yadava Families by Krishna.

 

Krishna’s daughter’s descendants have been in existence during the Silappadhikaram, A Tamil Epic, period, where it is mentioned that the Ayar woman performed the story of Hari Vamsa.

 

“The inference is that she must have been one among the 365 families of Yadavas of Mathura or Dwaraka whom Krishna must have sent as his gifts to his daughter on her marriage to the Pandyan king. The Krishna cult can therefore be said to have started in Tamil lands even at that time when Krishna was around. The Rasa lila which is not found in any ancient Sanskrit text but cropped up as late as the 15th century in the North, is found mentioned in Agananuru written not less than 2000 years ago goes to show that the intimate memories of Krishna had been carried by the Yadavas who had once shared their moments with Krishna.
