Six Vishnu Avatars In South Confirm South Sanatana Dharma


An examination of Lord Vishnu’s Avatars reveal a curious fact.

 

  1. Matsya, the fish-avatar who saved Manu – the progenitor of mankind from the great deluge and rescued the Vedic scriptures by killing a demon. Story can be found in the Matsya Purana.
  2. Kurma, the tortoise-avatar, who helped in the Samudra manthan – the churning of the ocean. Story can be found in the Kurma Purana.
  3. Varaha, the boar-avatar, who rescued the earth from the ocean, by killing her kidnapper-demon Hiranyaksha. Story can be found in the Varaha Purana.
  4. Narasimha, the half man-half lion avatar, who killed the tyrant demon-king Hiranyakashipu, to rescue the demon’s son Prahlada, who was a Vishnu-devotee
  5. Vamana, the dwarf-avatar, who subdued the king Maha Bali. Story can be found in the Vamana Purana.
  6. Parashurama, sage with the axe who killed the thousand-armed king Kartavirya Arjuna
  7. Rama, the king of Ayodhya and the hero of the Hindu epic Ramayana
  8. Krishna, the king of Dwarka, a central characte
  9. Balarama, brother of Krishna and
  10. Kalki, yet to manifest.

Matsya is from the Ocean and as such we can not ascribe a location on the earth.

Kurma is in the Ocean again, but there is a Temple where Kurma avatar took place.

Kurmnatha is housed in Sri Kurmam Temple, Srikakulam, Andhra Pradesh.

Vamana Avatar was in Kerala and the place where Bali had his kingdom was on the banks of Narmada, where the capital of Bali was situuated.

The place Varaha killed Hiranyakasipu is in Nepal, V(B0araha Kshetra), yet there is legend that Varaha is from Tirupati which is Adivaraha Kshetra.

Narasimha is from Ahobilam ,Andhra Pradesh.

Parashurama Avatar is from the South, Kerala.

Kalki is expected t manifest in the South.

So, of the Ten Avatars of Vishnu,

One is in the Ocean,

Three from the North of Vindhyas(Rama, Krishna and Balarama) and

Six are from the South, Dravida.

It is also worth noting that the Avatars of Vishnu in the North starts from Rama and as on date has manifested upto Krishna/Balarama

This is an agreement with the. Bhagavatham Sloka which states that the ancestor of Lord Rama, Satyavrata Manu migrated with his two sons to Ayodhya because of floods in the Dravida.

The Flood in question relates to the this Floods in Hindu scriptures and Tamil Literature.

Hence it seems that the Sanatana Dharma flourished in the south and moved to North because of floods and Satyavrta Manu established the Sanatana Dharma in the North.

As Time is Cyclic in Indian Thought, I am researching about the earlier floods to find more clues.

There is this issue of the movement of Tectonic plates, shift of North and South Poles which need an examination with the help of Indian Scriptures and Literature.

Inputs with authentic links welcome.

Sthree Varsha Women Kingdom Rishi Varsha Russia Hindu Texts


Russia was known as Rishi Varsha an it surrounded the Bharata Varsha as described in the Puranas.

 

There have migrations from India, from the Sarasvati Valley Civilization,from the Dravida Kingdoms, and from the North again.

 

There is enough evidence in the present Russia right from the names of Rivers,Olga,Moksha from which Moscow is derived,Karaggana, Utkaraganga,

 

People living in the valley of the River Moksha spoke a language Moksha!

 

Place Arkaim, the name of Surya, Sun is Arka.

 

Arkaim is an important archeological site .

 

Many Hindu Ritual signs are found here.

 

One finds the designs of swastika here and this site is dated 4500BC!

But reasonable reactions notwithstanding, why have people who are looking for their roots in the direction of Vedic ancestry been more suspect than any other indigenous people curious about their heritage? After all, it would appear to be an uncommonly large area upon which such ancestors would have enjoyed their apparently advanced culture. Such a culture would seem to have “fed” much of what we now call Western civilization and parts of Asia, including migrated tribes, such as American Indians and even Europeans settling America.

Moreover, as we also explore elsewhere regarding linguistic research efforts around the so-called Nostratic or Proto-Language question, some linguists are struggling with the possibility of linguistic ancestral roots for possibly ALL humankind, of all colors, so that the suspect idea of any “superiority” should be supported as an excitement for all of humanity maybe re-discovering its true origin and common spiritual heritage.

Mahabharata describes the route to Russia while talking about Kekaya Kingdom.

 

Kaikeyi of Ramayana was born here.

 

“Lahore was the kingdom of Lava, son of Rama. ead my post on this.

Peshawar was the kingdom of Pushkalavathy ruled by Pushkala, son of Bharatha.

These two cities were established during the reign of Rama, the son of Dasaratha. These cities are in the route toKekaya, today’s Kazaksthan which was the maternal land of Kaikeyi, mother of Bhratha. One has to cross riverChakshus to reach Kekaya.  This river is now known as Oxus . It is shown in blue colour in this picture”

The Route to Russia,, Mahabharata.

 

People who lived in the valley near Moscow worshiped Indra and Vayu.

 

Moscow Empire was ruled by women called Sthree Rajya.

 

It was dominated by women – due to which it got the name Sthree Rajya – the land of women or dominated by women.  They were supposed to seduce men and lead a free life.

Varaha mihira has mentioned this place as one of the countries surrounding Bharatha varsha.

Vatsyanana also has mentioned about Sthree Rajya in the context of “Grama naari vishayam” where he has said that the women of Sthree Rajya  were free to have sex with a any man they liked.

Bhattasmin , the commentator for Artha sastra also has talked about SthreRajya as a country abounding in luxurious artilces and happiness.

 

Please read my post on where an ancient Vishnu Idol was found in Russia.

 

Also there are suggestions that the Rig Veda might have been composed in the Arctic.

 

Please refer my post.

 

So what now is called Russia was following Santana Dharma and many Rishis, Yagnyavalkya and Vasishta traveled and stayed there.,near Vaikhanasa now called Baikal.

Indra In Russia Lake Baikal Vaikhanasa Teertha


My research into Sanatana Dharma having spread through out the world has come to a sort of shape.

 

Studies on Vedas, Puranas ,Ithihasas and Tamil literature has given me a fair idea.

 

Cross checking this information with the  geographical information with the Legends and the Physical locations of the world provide some interesting information.

 

I have written auite a few articles on the evidence of Sanatana Dharma being present throughout the world, with the help of archeological findings, culture and linguistics.

 

Sanatana Dharma was in practice in Sri Lanka,Malaysia, Cambodia,Vietnam, Laos, Philippines,Japan,Fiji,China, New Zealand, Australia on the eastern side of the present India,

 

Middle East, Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy,Spain,France, Britain,

 

African Continent,

 

South America, Central America,Mexico and North America(US).

 

This Sanatana Dharma had Dravida or South India conncetion.

 

This becomes evident when one reads Sanskrit Literature and Hindu religious texts in conjunction with Tamil literature and cross referencing the events found in these texts with the Great floods referred to in them.

 

Lord Rama’s ancestor Satyavrata Manu migrated from the South , land between Goa and the Indian Ocean, to Ayodhya with his two sons.

 

His other son with the help of Ganesha and Shiva moved towards the West through the Arabian Sea  and settled down in Europe and Africa.

 

This happened during the third Great Flood.

 

But the is another reference to the migration of the people from the Sarasvati Valley/Indus Valley towards North through Afghanistan and Russia .

 

A group among these moved into Europe as well.

 

This accounts for the migration of people from Asia into Europe in intermittent waves.

 

Sagara, he ancestor of Rama, more ancient than Satyavrata Manu who moved from the South to North.

 

This was the period when Ganga, the Ganges did not flow.

 

This was subsequently brought (Ganges) by Bhagiratha, Sagara’s descendant.

 

Sagara fought a great Battle with the Kings of the South,they were also a part of Sanatana Dharma and won.

 

He banished them to the west through Afghanistan and asked them not to practice Sanatana Dharama, have the heads shaved and cursed them to be called Milechas.

Milecha is the term used in a derogatory sense to indicate the people of the west.

This is also the reason for prohibiting Sanatana Dharma followers from traveling through the Ocean.

Some of these people settled down Russia and moved into Arctic as well.

Among these people who were prohibited from learning the Vedas, some of them did.

They established Sanatana Dharma and Hindu practices in the Arctic and Russia.

The descendents of this group probably came down to India at a later date through SouthEast of Russia, Afghanistan into Indus Valley.

 

This probably is called the present Indus Valley Civilization.

 

Now to the evidence of Sanatana Dharam having been present in Russia.

 

Airavatha Varsha.jpg

Airavatha Varsha as described in Puranas.Airavatha Varsha.

 

Lake Baikal in Russia.jpg

Lake Baikal in Russia.

In Sudharshana Dweepa” , the rule of Sanatana Dharma was in place.

It had Bharath in the South (rectangle area in the bottom of this picture) with

Hemakuta or Himalayas in its northern limits,

an intermediary Ilavarsha to the north of Himalayas (noted in dark red square in the middle) and

a vast Airavatha varsha in extreme north of the Sudharshana dweepa.

Most of Russia is covered by Airavatha varsha.

Airavatha is the name of the elephant of Indra, the titular king of the Devas.

The Deva territory is close to the North pole where there was sunlight continuously for 6 months and darkness continuously for 6 months.

The elephant, Airavatha  in all probability was the Woolly mammoth which became extinct about 10,000 years ago.

 

Skanda secured the release of Indra’s son, Jayanthaand killed Sura padma.  (Skanda Puaana)

Skanda described in this purana coincides with Ugra kumara born to Meenakshi and Sundareswara who started the first Sangam assemblage in the South-Madurai (Then-Madurai) in Deep South about 11,000 years ago.(post on this follows)

 

Before the last glaciation, the territory near north pole was very much habitable. The locations called Amaravathy, capital city of Devas and Uttar Kuru existed in Siberia.

 

The route to Uttarkuru and Deva territories is explained in Valmiki Ramayana through the narration of Shugreevawho detailed the places to be seen and searched to find out Seetha  in the north of Bharath. (Valmiki Ramayana -4-43)

 

Read my post On Sugreeva’s direction to vanaras to search for Sita in Peru.

Once having crossed the vast Himalayas, he describes a pure-water  lake called Vaikhanas where sages used to do penance.

This coincides with Lake Baikal.. There is an opinion that the name Russia was derived from Rishi varsha.

There is a mention of Rishi varsha in scriptures which goes well with this region. The presence of Devas  in this part of the globe in a distant past had attracted  sages to this place.

 

It is derived from the Persian word ‘rana’ or ‘ra’. But this word ‘rasa’ is a straight Sanskrit word meaning essence, juice, nectar, elixir, soup, love, the finest part of anything and so on.

This name perfectly fits with the river of fine water quality From the river’s name Rasa, the name Russia was derived.

Volga’s tributary is called  as ‘Oka’. People connect it with the Latin Aqua which means water, whereas the root word Apa ins again a straight Sanskrit word meaning the same.

From Apa comes ‘aapa-saras’ the  waterway and from that ‘apsaras’ the beautiful girls who enjoy playing in the aapa-saras.

This region of Russia was identified with Apsaras women. Menaka, Urvasi, Thiloththama etc were all apsara women who were known to have seduced men.

Another tributary of Volga is known by a name which is very familiar to any Hindu.

It is river ‘Moksha’ which means salvation in Sanskrit.

There is another tributary nearer to this Moksha called as “Mokswa”.

Moscow got its name from Mokswa because of its location on the banks of this river!

Manu Statue In Philippines Assembly Hindu Empire


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.

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…

Shiva Installed By Lord Rama Antarvedi Dakshina Kasi


I am aware of the Linga by Sita and the praying of Rama at Rameswaram,after the killing of Ravana in Lanka to be rid of Brahmahathi Dosha, the sin of killing Brahmin-Ravana was a Brahmin.

 

I understand that there is a very ancient temple in East Godavari District where there ia Shiva Temple,where Lord Rama is reported to have installed a Shiva Idol.

 

Antharvadi Temple Gopuram.jpg

Antharvadi Lakshinarasimha SwamyTemple Gopuram.

 

The Churning of the Ocean of Milk ,Samudra Madhanam is believed to have taken place here, according to the Sthala Purana(Temple)

 

* There are some controversies on this.I shall be posting articles on this as also the legend of Lord Narasimha at Ahobilam.

 

The temple is in Antharvadi ,East Godavari District,Andhra Pradesh, India.

 

This is in the place where Vasishta Godvari, a tributary of Godavari meets the Bay of Bengal.

 

The main temple is of Lakshminarasimha Swamy.

 

Antharvadi is known as the second Varanasi, Benares, Dakshina Kasi.

 

The main temple is of Lakshminarasimha Swamy.

 

The temple is called as an island temple because of its confluence. This temple is among the rarities as the main Deity i.e. Lord Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy(one of the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu) who faces towards West instead of East (usual direction of other temples in India) constructed between the 15th and 16th centuries. This is 32 kshetra of 108 Narashima kshetrams. It is a temple of 5 storeyed Vimana Gopuram. As one enters the temple one can Garuda on one side and Bhaktha Anjaneya on the other side of temple entrance. While approaching “Garbha Gudi” (Sanctum Sanctorum) one can see an adorable “Vatapatra Sayi” (Lord Krishna on a palm leaf) on its roof. The idol is made from a single stone. In the Garbha Gudi, one can have a darshan of the magnificient Lord Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy with his Consort Goddess Lakshmi Devi on his lap.

After the darshan, one has to go around the sanctum, as there are different deities. On the east side of the prakaram(wall), is Goddess Rajyalakshmi and Lord Venkateshwara, to the north side is Bhoodevi and Ranganadha Swamy, to the west side of the prakaram is Santhana Gopala Swamy and Keshava Swamy, and finally to the south side of the prakaram is the Acharyas and Alwars sannidhi(small temples) and Chaturbhuja (four-armed) Anjaneya. Apart from the presiding Deity, Lord Narasimha Swamy, there are also Deities of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. A temple of Neelakanteshwara (Lord Shiva) is also present which is located at the other side, almost nearer to the bank of Godavari, also called, Vasishta Godavari is a must see. This deity was installed by Lord Sri Rama and is said to be worshipped by Brahma himself.

 

Devotees interested in paying a visit to the place may book their accommodation at TTD Choultry, Antarvedi, at nominal rates of Rs 200/- and 600/- for Non A/c and A/c Rooms respectively. They can be contacted through this number:- (08862)259313. Also the Anna Danam programme is conducted every day within the temple premises. Or one can even call the Devasthanam for enquiries/bookings

How to Reach
