Earth Is Hollow Science Hinduism ?

In Hinduism on November 17, 2014 at 18:20

The Puranas of the Hindus, they are eighteen in number, might differ among themselves in the narration some events recorded.


But all the Puaranas are uniform in asserting that the Earth, called Jambudweepa is elliptical, egg shaped.

Cosmos in Hinduism,


While explaining the evolution of the Universe the Puranas describe the Universe as being a shell within a shell.


They also describe the Seven Lokas, places of existence.


Our Earth is in the middle and we have tree above  and two below us.


Those that are below are the dwelling places of  Rakshasas and others.


The place called Patala and two more are reported to be extremely hot.


Please read my post on the Seven Lokas Hinduism .


Scroll down for Video.


Consider the following facts from Hinduism, some of which have been archaeologically verified, while some are being checked up.


1.The Universe is more than two billion years old.

2.There have been Giants and Pygmies.

3.There were super continents, like Lemuria, Atlantis.

4.There have been three recorded Tsunamis on the Earth.

5.Lord Rama’s ancestor Vaivaswatha Manu migrated from the South to North.

6.Recorded in the Ramayana are the adventures of Rakshasas in the Patala Loka.

“There are certain narrations in Mahabharata, that defies any rational explanations. 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,”

(ancient voice.wikidot)

7.Arjuna fought with Beings from the Patala Loka near the North Pole(Mahabharata)

8.The Rig Veda was composed in the North Pole.

9.Mount Meru is in te North Pole.

10.People traveled through the North Pole and interacted with people who lived down in the Patala Loka.


I can add more, but This would suffice.


You may read my posts on all these in this site under Hinduism.


Now let us see what evidence and science have to say on this fact that the Earth Is hollow.


n February 1947 Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd was in charge of a massive operation in the Arctic that was called Operation High jump and he was a man who was given the Medal of Honor that is the highest military decoration awarded by the United States government. In that period Admiral Richard E. Byrd together with Admiral Forrestal, who was a member of the Majestic Twelve those had a great Alien related knowledge, had the opportunity to fly unexpectedly to the land beyond the North pole and for the first and last time to visit the Hollow Earth. Admiral Forrestal was appointed in 1947 by President Harry S. Truman as  the first United States Secretary of Defense.


Photos that today in the year of 2011 are showing us through satellites some of the entrances into the Hollow Earth in Antarctica (South Pole ) and some unexplained  and mysterious hidden locations in the in North Pole, probably including among them the entrance that Admiral Byrd had entered the Hollow Earth in 1947 to the land beyond the North pole where he wrote his log-book that has been kept secret and away from publication and from the entire world by the USA or other governments.”

The Hollow Earth Theory states that the earth is not a solid sphere with a central, hot magma which is yet to cool, but a hollow sphere that has a thick crust of landmass only around the circumference, with openings at the north and south poles. There is an ‘inner sun’ at the centre of the earth. The ring of land crust is supposed to be between 600 and 800 miles in thickness and the polar openings between 100 and 1400 miles in diameter. This leaves a space of over 7000 miles at the centre, which is hollow.

In direct contravention to the proportion of land and water mass being of the ratio 1:4 on the surface, the inner crust has this proportion in the ration 4:1, that is, four-fifths of land and only one-fifth of water. The reason for this reversal is that the floors of the surface oceans are actually landmass on the inner side!

A unique feature of this theory is that it logically confronts the currently accepted solid earth theory, with facts that orthodox science has overlooked. The adherents of this theory point to its origins in the religious myths throughout the world, the science fiction works of the 17th and 18th centuries, and the ‘anomalies’ found during the Arctic expeditions undertaken over the last two centuries.

Some of these adherents subscribe to the thinking that a whole civilization
of prosperous, peaceful and technologically more advanced humans live in a world of highly evolved vegetable and animal life sustained by the ‘inner sun’ of the hollow earth, on the vast continents of land mass that form the inner side of the surface world we are living.

There are also people who think that the stories of dark entities such as the werevolves, vampires, ghosts and other ghastly creatures that are said to occupy the caverns under the earth might have some element of truth in them.

Hollow Earth and the Puranas

There are Puranic evidences that are said to point to a civilization inside the hollow earth. Some of them include:

1. Sons of Sagara and the Patala Ganga (Brahmanda Purana)

Indra had stolen the sacrificial horse of King Sagara which he had kept for the ashvamedha yajna (sacrifice ritual using a horse). In their search for the horse, the sons of Sagara came to a Northern ocean, which they crossed, and entered the interior of the earth. There they found the horse in the hermitage of Kapila Rishi. They mistook that it was the Rishi who stole the horse and disturbed his tapas (meditation). The angered Rishi burnt all the 60,000 of them to ashes with a curse. The horse was later found by the grandson of King Sagara and the asvamedha yajna was completed. Finally, it was Bhagiratha, a descendant of the late King Sagara who performed intense tapas and brought the Ganga River to the world and then to the Palata Loka where she washed the sins of the sons and liberated them.

2. Kalki Avatar of Lord Vishnu

Srimad Bhagavtam states in Canto 12, chapter 2, Text 18:

brahmanasya mahatmanah
bhavane visnuyasasah
kalkih pradurbhavisyati

According to this verse, Lord Vishnu will take the Kalki Avatar at the Sambhala village at the end of Kali Yuga to establish the oncoming Satya Yuga. Padma Purana (6.242.8-12) also mentions that the name of the village is Sambhala. This village is supposed not to exist today, but to be be born in due time, from the inner earth. The Tibetan lore speaks of a city named Shamballa which they consider to be in the interior of the earth on the Himalayas. Thus the Satya Yuga with its truly Vedic civilization will be established on the surface of the earth from its interior.

3. Parasurama’s Connection

Srimad Bhagavatam states in Canto 9, Chapter 16, Text 21 that Sri Parasurama, after wiping out the kshatriya clan off the face of the earth, performed a yajna (sacrifice) to bring his father back to life.

“After completing the sacrifice, Lord Parasurama gave the eastern
direction to the hota as a gift, the south to the brahma, the west to the
adhvaryu, the north to the udgata, and the four corners–northeast,
southeast, northwest and southwest–to the other priests. He gave the
middle to Kasyapa and the place known as Aryavarta to the upadrasta.
Whatever remained he distributed among the sadasyas, the associate

Hollow Earth theory adherents say that the term ‘madhyatah’ in the above verse might mean the central or innter portion of the earth (that Sri Parasurama gave to Kasyapa Rishi), but this seems to be a far-fetched idea, as the verse is clear as to what parts of the earth he gave as gifts to the rishis.

However, the Hindi TV serial on Vishnu Puranam showed Sri Parasurama springing up from the interior of the earth to kill a kshatriya king.

4. Abduction of Duryodhana

Vana-parva of Mahabharata describes a battle waged by Karna and Duryodhana with the Gandharvas in a forest. Duryodhana was defeated and captured by the Gandharvas until he was rescued by Arjuna, his archenemy. Humilated, Duryodhana decided to give up his life doing tapas and fasting unto death. The Danavas found this out, created a powerful woman named Kritya, using whom they brought Duryodhana to their nether world (bila-svarga). They explained to Duryodhana that he was born out of a yajna (sacrifice) to please Lord Shiva, that his friend Karna was Narkasura in his earlier birth who was hostile to Vishnu and that their purpose was to defeate the Pandavas. The Danavas also assured that great warriors like Drona and Bhishma would be influenced by them to fight the war remaining on his side. The whole episodes seemed like a dream to Duryodhana.

Strangely, the Hollow Earth theorists attribute this episode to be typical of a UFO encounter! This is because they think that the origin of the UFOs is from the interior earth through the polar openings. They point out the similarities thus (Ref: http://www.holloworbs.com/abduction_of_duryodhana.htm):

1. A strange being takes Duryodhana bodily to another location, where he has a meeting with other strange beings.
2. Mystical or higher-dimensional transport is used.
3. The strange beings have human form, but look ‘gruesome’. Certainly they are ‘aliens’.
4. These beings have been guiding Duryodhana’s life from the very beginning.
5. They designed his body so that he would be impervious to weapons. Thus they apparently engaged in genetic manipulations, or something similar.
6. The aliens were planning to manipulate human beings through mind control.
7. After his interview, Duryodhana returned to the spot where he was taken, and after settling him down, his captor disappeared.
8. After the experience, it seemed to be a dream.
9. There are accounts in the UFO literature which parallel the story of Duryodhana.

5. Arctic Home of the Vedas
(Ref: http://www.holloworbs.com/Arctic_Home_Vedas.htm)

Bala Gangadhar Tilak (1856-1920), a key participant in India’s freedom struggle was a vedic scholar and researches. He published his findings in a book titled The Arctic Home of The Vedas in 1903. In this book he quotes the authority of Vedas and states that the original Arctic home of humanity was destroyed around 10,000 – 8,000 BCE by the last Ice Age, and that from 8,000 – 3000 BCE, was the ‘Age of Wandering’, before they Vedic people finally settled in India between 5,000 – 3000 BCE.

In chapter four, page 57 of the book, Tilak writes:



We shall therefore, next quote the Mahabharat, which gives such a clear description of Mount Meru, the lord of the mountains, as to leave no doubt its being the North Pole, or possessing the Polar characteristics. In chapters 163 and 164 of Vanaparvan, Arjuna’s visit to the mount is described in detail and we are therein told, ‘at Meru the Sun and the Moon go round from left to right ( Pradadakshinam ) every day and so do all the stars.’ From the normal, inhabited longitudes on the surface of the earth, the Sun and Moon don’t rise and travel left and right, only above one’s head. According to how one turns, the rising could be left or right, frontal or from the back. Only from the Arctic could the rising of the Sun be from left to right, and it can ONLY be from left to right. So what region is being referred to in this description of Meru’s placement?”

The Ramayana one of the most famous texts of India, tells the story of the great avatar, Rama. It describes Rama as “an emissary from *Agartha” who arrived on a Vimana. In India there is an ancient belief, still held by some, in a subterranean race of serpent people who dwell in the cities Patala and Bhogavati. According to the legend, they wage war on the kingdom of Agharta. “The Nagas,” according to “The Deep Dwellers,” “are described as a very advanced race or species, with a highly-developed technology. They also harbor a disdain for human beings, whom they are said to abduct, torture, interbreed with and even to eat.”

The Entrances. While the entrance to Bhogavati is somewhere in the Himalayas, believers assert that Patala can be entered through the Well of Sheshna in Benares, India. Says William Michael Mott in “The Deep Dwellers”: “According to herpetologist and author Sherman A. Minton, as stated in his book Venomous Reptiles, this entrance is very real, with forty steps which descend into a circular depression, to terminate at a closed stone door which is covered in bas-relief cobras.

*I am yet to find ‘Agartha’ in Sanskrit version.


If the core of the Earth is too hot and it is increases  dramatically during Solar Flares to such an extent  that it could have destroyed the Earth.

It has not happened.

There is no satisfactory explanation for the Google Maps anomaly  in the North Pole( I shall be posting on this).

Science , at best, in my view,  is a working Hypothesis.That’s all consider the volte face science has done in all the fields.

Legends and Puranas may also be accorded the same consideration while formulating theories and await further evidence to surface.

They may be taken as pointers to facts and may be kept in mind for referral while formulating a Theory instead of condemning them.






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.


Rama welcomed.jpg

Rama’s Welcome at Ayodhya after Winning the War.


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.

Aswathama Alive Seen Explanation

In Hinduism on October 26, 2014 at 19:10

I have been talking to my grandson in Sweden who informed that he had seen in the internet that Aswathama,son of Dronacharya of the Mahabharata that

Aswatahama had been sighted in North India and he wanted my explanation.



Tapkeshwar Temple.jpg

Aswatahama,Tapkeshwar Temple


The News  Aswathama was seen,


Interestingly, people who met Ashwatthama never cited the incident as ego booster but merely highlighted it in their biographies or as contextual reference in their historical documents; giving very little importance to the occasion – writing up few lines on  their meeting with Aswatthama
This could be because they were not astonished to meet him or never thought of giving it due importance in their writings due to his past deeds in Dwapar Yuga.
You may contact Dr Narayan Dutta Srimali’s disciples in Jodhpur, INDIA. They tell all these with evidence.
Incident 1
A more than a decade old newspaper article ran about a railway employee on leave. During his wanderings in the jungles of Navsari (Gujarat) he had reported a very tall man of about 12 feet with a wound on his head. He claimed to have conversation with him and learnt that Bheem was much taller and stronger than him.
Incident 2
The last record of his existence came to my notice while reading a book called “Himalaya kah raha hai” by Pilot Baba. you can also go to his website to read the excerpts. The temple where he stayed was washed away in the floods a few years back. His site is link* is given at foot note of this post.
Incident 3
When in 1192, Prithveeraaj Chauhaan lost the battle from Mohammad Gauree, he left for jungle. There he met one old person with a scar on his head. Being a very good doctor Prithveeraaj Chauhaan confidently asked him that he can cure his scar. The old man agreed. But even after week’s medication it remained as it is. Prithveeraaj was surprised and understood the details. He asked old man if he is Ashwatthaamaa. Because only the scars that is created through taking up the “MANI” the gem from forehead cannot be cured. The old man told that he was Ashwatthaamaa and then he went away. This description is given in “Prithviraj Raso” the book written in 12th century by him.
Incident 4
In late 14th, early 15th century there lived in Gadag, Karnaatak, a poor Braahman called Naranappa. Later, because of the Mahabharata epic “Karnata Bharata Kathamanjari” that he wrote in Kannada, he came to be called as Kumara Vyasa. His greatest desire was to write Mahaabhaarat based on original sources, and to this end he prayed day-in and day-out in the Temple of Veera Naaraayan, temple of Trikooteshwar. One day the Almighty decided to answer his prayers and appeared in his dream and said: “Attend the forthcoming Dwaadashee Paaran (Dwaadashee feast) in the Veera Naaraayan Temple. Watch out for one lone Braahman who would leave the feast the earliest. He is none other than Ashwathaamaa of MBH. Fall at his feet and ask him to narrate the MBH as it happened. You can record it in writing and claim your share of fame”.
Promptly Naranappa attended the following Dwaadashee Paaran at the Veera Naaraayan Temple, and then followed the Braahman who finished his feast the earliest and started walking out of the Temple. He approached him and fell at his feet saying, “I know who you are, you are the very same Ashwatthaamaa of MahaBharat, please help me”. At this Ashwathaamaa was taken aback and asked him how do you know this? Naranappa responded saying “The Veera Naaraayan Swamy” appeared in his dream and told me so. Ashwatthaamaa was mightily pleased hearing this and asked Naranappa, OK, tell me what can I do for you. Naranappa responded saying he would like to write the Mahaabhaarat in Kannada as it happened.
To this Ashwatthaamaa agreed under two conditions. He said that Naranappa should start writing the Mahaabhaarat everyday after he finished his bath, wearing a wet Veshti (Dhotee). Ashwatthaamaa said – “You can keep writing till such time your Veshti is wet and the MahaBharata would flow from your pen as it happened. The moment your clothes dry up, the flow would stop. He also put a condition that he should not disclose this secret to anyone failing which the flow would stop forever. Needless to say, our Naranappa, was immensely excited about the project, and he kept his secret till the time he reached the “Gadaa Parv” (the time when Duryodhan and Bheem fought the duel of the mace fight). At this moment it is believed that Ashwatthaamaa appeared before Naranappa and he was in tears ” remembering his friend Duryodhan and the A-Dhaarmik (unjustified) way in which Bheem defeated Duryodhan. Naranappa overcome with excitement disclosed this secret to his wife, and his writing flow stopped immediately. That is why his Mahaabhaarat ends with Gadaa Parv only. Later someone might have added up from Vyaas’ MahaBharat, but our Kumara Vyaas’s MahaBharata ended only with Gadaa Parv. End of Mahabharat and Beginning of Kaliyuga further suggest that Dronacharya’s son is very much alive and is bound to roam in India to serve the curse bestowed on him.
The curse that “Ashwatthaamaa would roam the world carrying his own dead body, with people shunning him, and suffering the pain of the wound on his forehead from where the “Mani” was removed by force”, was for 3000 years. 3000 years since Mahabharata is now long passed, and I am sure, Ashwatthaamaa is there somewhere in the Himaalaya, performing Tapasyaa.
Incident 5
Dharmdev and Bhaktimaataa (father and mother of Bhagwan Swaminarayan) were cursed over two hundred years ago by Ashwatthaamaa – son of Dronacharya. This is described in Satsangi Jivan written by Shatanand Muni – He was tall and well built robed in orange clothes as a Braahman. His head was strapped just above his eyebrows and he was covered with Bhasm (ash). He had big red eyes full of angerness.
Mother Bhakti and father Dharm were on their way back from Vrindaavan where Shree Krishn proclaimed to them that there troubles in Chapaiyaa (village close to the banks of Sarayoo) would soon end after He himself would be born to them. On the way back one night (it took 28 days for them to get back to chapaiyaa village – the birthplace of Swaminarayan Bhagwan), as they walked through the forest they lost there way. They saw a tall Braahman roaming in the forest. They asked him for direction. The Braahman with a deep voice asked where they were coming from as they looked feared. Dharmdev explained that they were a Sarvariyaa Saam Vedee Braahman and his Kuldev was Hanumaan Jee and up on Hanumaan Jee’s advice at Hanumaan Garhee -Ayodhyaa (where Dharmdev did Tapascharyaa for 3 months) they went to Vrindaavan. Dharmdev further explained the whole incident as well as telling him how they had a revelation from Lord Krishn and Shreemati Raadhaaraanee in Vrindaavan. With this the Brahmin spoke with anger in his voice “Krishna my arch enemy? Will be born to you? I curse Him for the pain I have borne as of Him, that He as your son will never be able to bear weapons and neither shall he be able to fight in any war.”
Saying this he left pushing Dharmdev aside. Bhaktimata started trembling and crying. Just then Hanumaan Jee arrived to them once again and calmed them and showed them the way and told them that they need not fear as God does not need any weapon nor need to fight to rid evil and tyranny.
This incident shows that Ashwatthaamaa is still roaming in forests and jungles of India today. As this was just over 200 odd years ago. [4/6/2005]
Incident 6
My Father’s uncle was a famous (Vaidya) – Doctor in Ludhiana. He would spend hours meditating too. He was a Bhakt of Data Dayal, a well Known Guru in Panjaab (try to search for Data Dayal on net). One day as he was closing his shop in the after noon, it was summer time and everything was shut due to summers, in 1968-69, Ludhiaanaa, Panjaab, just then an old person came to him, whose face was covered and spoke to him in crude Panjaabee and Hindi mix, “Badaa naam sunaa hai teraa, bhaut badaa vaidya hai too? Ilaaj kar sakdaa hai meraa?
My father’s uncle said – “Tell me what the problem is?” and when he removed the Pagadee from his head, there was a dent on the forehead. He had never seen such a dent before, as if the brain was taken away from the fore front, yet the skin was tight as if nothing had happened. My dad’s uncle was a bit nervous but still said that he would like to have a second look at him. He said – “Tenu pataa hai main kaun hoon?” and my dad’s uncle said – “I think I know who you are but still let me get my stuff.” By the time he brings his stuff from the almirah, that man had left, never to be found again. But he said that his eyes always haunted him, He had blue eyes, which were so sharp as if he would walk inside his brain.
Incident 7
I have also heard from numerous people that others have spotted someone with a dent in the forehead roaming around the Narmadaa river (Gujaraat). He was described as tall person, and that there was tons of fly’s, bugs surrounding him all the time.
Thought: What is more startling about the experiences that every person shared was; the incidences were unique, non-repetitive and their descriptions differed which further add value to the perception that Ashwathama is still roaming in the forest to serve the curse that he got from Lord Krishna. And most of all, these were shared by revered Kings, Saints and Sages who never fall for recognition but shared it with disciples as one of the incident of their lives; which is one of the basis of real strength of Indian spiritual power.’
Aswathama was cursed by Krishna towards the closing of the Mahabharata War that he would remain forests with out company and remain immortal.
This was reinforced by Krishna when Aswathama failed to retract the Narayanastra which he sent to destroy the Pandavas after he had come to know of
his father Drona’s death by subterfuge.
He was also divested of his Syamantaka Mani on his forehead, his forehead being provided by him as a target for Narayanastra.
Please read my post on this.
Now to the incidents of Aswatahama being alive and seen.
1.Aswathama is a Chiranjeevi, Immortal.
Being Immortal does not mean that he physical frame does not decay and wither away.
What it means is the though the physical body dies, the Sukshma Sareera does not go through the PiruLoka en route to Swarga and it is left wandering.
Any material born on Earth must amd would decay and die.
Therefore that Aswatahama’s physical frame is seen is not probable or possible.

Alter the Mahabharata War was over,only Ten remained alive, Three from the Kaurava Side and Seven from the Pandavas.



They are,

Pandavas 5

Lord Krishna,


From the Kaurava Side Aswathama, Kruthavarma and Krupa.(Mahabharata ,Adi Parva).


Vyasa is very clear on who remained after the War.


He narrates the death of the others including Lord Krishna.


If Aswatahama retained his physical frame , Vyasa would definitely have made a specific mention about it.


He had left it as it was as he was confident that people wold know what the term Chiranjeevi meant


The people might have seen Aswathama’s Sukshma Sareera and the people who had seen him might have been evolved souls who could relate to Sukshma Sareera of those who were dead long back.


Siddhas belong to this category and thogh they leave their body they asumse different bodies and there are instances to confirm this , in the case of


Trilinga Swamigal and Kuzhandayanada Swamigal.


I recall an incident narrated by my father.


Kuzhandai(Child) Swamigal used to stay in our paternal grandfather’s house and my father used to bathe him.( around 1935)


On one occasion my father had seen a knife wound scar on the back of Kuzhandai Swamy and asked him about it.


He seems to have replied casually that Muslim had knifed him in Plassey(Battle of Plassey, 23 June 1757)







Vishnu With Four Heads

In Hinduism on October 20, 2014 at 18:27

Lord Vishnu ,from the Vedic stand point, is a form of Narayana,who is a manifestation of Purusha.


Vishnu is the Protector, the word Vishnu is from the Sanskrit word ‘Jishnu’, that which sustains.


His forms are many ,so are His Avatars, numbering 10/12.


Vishnu with FourHeads.jpg


The Vishnu Sahasranama calls Him as,





‘Chaturmurthi,Chatur  Bahu’, Chatur Vyuha, Chatur Gathi ‘four headed, with four arms, four manifestations, and four Goals.


I was curious to find out the reference as one normally sees Vishnu with One head and Four arms.


The first reference of  Vishnu with Head appears in the Mahabharata.


Though I am unable to locate any temple associated with this form., there are Temples in Kashmir with this Icon.


If there is any temple or the Icon is known to some people, please send in the information.


The Four Heads represent ,






Varaha, the Boar Avatar,


and Kapila ,representing Ferociousness or Asura Bhava.


This is one interpretation.


My view is that as Sage Kapila, the Founder of Samkhya System of Indian Philosophy, is an Avatar of Vishnu, the fourth face may represent him.


Pancharatra system explains thus,


Vasudeva (Krishna), Samkarshana (Balarama), Pradyumna and Aniruddha – four vyuhas (manifestations) of Vishnu.
