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 .

Then came the Turks.




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!

In Hinduism on July 18, 2014 at 09:03


The great yellow shawl wearing,Angavastram dropping  before Venu Gopala Swamy Temple ,Karunanidhi remarked,


‘You say Rama built the Rama Sethu(Adams bridge).


Was Rama a qualified builder?


In which University did he get his Engineering degree?


Well joker, here are some facts on this issue and on why the stones used in constructing the bridge float on water.


Scroll down for Video and for more check the Link.

Ram Sethu,Adams Bridge.

Ram Sethu,Adams Bridge.


Here one will find that the much touted scientific theories striving to prove that these stones are a natural phenomenon are shot down.

Ram Sethu stone floating on water.

Ram Sethu stone floating on water.


Theories offers on why these stones float are,


1.It is a Coral stone.(NASA Report)


Coral  Stones do not float in water.


Coral stones do not form in water but on hard surface.


2.The stones are a part of Volcanic ash, they have trapped air inside and hence they float.


The stones found in the Palk Strait have been analysed and they do not have trapped air inside.


They have been made of Pumice,a kind of Rock made of Lava and water.


There has been no known instance of Volcano having been near Rameshwaram.


(G.K.Mohandas, Historian)


3.The Floating stones are of different Chemical composition,


They have been checked.


They have the same physical and chemical composition of normal stones..

Ravana Abducted Rama’s Mother Kausalya. Valmiki

In Hinduism on July 13, 2014 at 13:40

This might b news to people who may not be aware of the many versions of Ramayana, some of them by Valimiki himself.


It is said that there are Sata Koti, 100 Crore Ramayanas, probably meaning innumerable-I am not confident of stating this, there might be even this number as many!


Valmiki, not being satisfied  with The Ramayana we know he had written wrote some more Ramayan where he narrated more incidents from the Ramayana and about the character of Rama.


Ananda Ramayanam (12,252 slokas), 
Adyatma Ramayana is said to be part of the Satakoti Ramayanam.  
Ananda Ramayanam was written by Sri Valmiki himself.  

It is believed that  Sri Valmiki felt sad that he left out some important details of Sri Rama's 
life in his original work, and wrote Ananda Ramayanam to get peace 
of mind.  

There are 9 kandams in Ananda Ramayanam:

1. SAra KAndam  (has the sAram or the juice of Rama charitam)
2. YAtrA KAndam (Sri Rama's yAtras after His pattAbhishekam)
3. YAga KAndam  (Sri Rama's asvamedha yAgam)
4. VilAsa KAndam (Sri Rama's and Sita's daily life)
5. Janma KAndam  (Birth of Lava and Kusa)
6. VivAha KAndam (Weddings of Sri Rama's and his brothers' sons)
7. RAjya KAndam  (fights with other asuras, expansion of kingdom, rajya pari-
8. ManOhara KAndam (slokas, Rama nama mahima etc.)
9. Poorna KAndam   (Sri Rama and others leaving for Sri Vaikuntam).

Here is the narration about Kausalya, Rama's mother being abducted by Ravana.

This reminds of the indent involving Kamsa, Devaki and Vasudeva, when kamsa imprisoned Devaki and Vasudeva, to ensure that Lord Krishna  was not born!

The narration by Valimiki about Kausalya does not contradict or affect the Ramayana as we know.

Stories from Sara Kandam - Chapter 1:

1.1 Story about Dasaratha and Kausalya:

Valmiki's original Ramayana starts with Dasaratha ruling Ayodhya as a great
king and desiring to do asvamedha yaga with his wives (Balakandam 5-8 sargas).
Ananda Ramayanam goes many years prior to that and starts with Dasaratha and 
Kausalya's marriage.

It is the time when Dasaratha's marriage with Kausalya is being fixed.
Dasaratha is enjoying himself on the Sarayu river in a boat.  

Ravana calls for Brahma and asks Him who will cause his (Ravana's)
death.  Brahma tells him that Lord Narayana will be born to Dasaratha 
and Kausalya as Rama and will kill Ravana.  He also tells him
that Dasaratha and Kausalya are going to be married in 5 days.

Ravana gets on his pushpaka vimana with several asuras and goes to Ayodhya,
fights with Dasaratha and breaks the boat Dasaratha is in.  Dasaratha and
Sumantra somehow escape holding on to a piece of the boat and float down 
the Sarayu river, reach the Ganges and eventually the ocean.

Ravana proceeds to fight Kausalya's father (the Kosala king) and abducts 
Kausalya. On the way to Lanka, he decides to hide Kausalya in a safe 
place and leaves her in the custody of a shark, after placing her in a 
box.  The shark carries the box in its mouth.  Sometime later, the 
shark happens to encounter another shark. It places the box in a nearby 
island and starts fighting.  In the meantime, Dasaratha and Sumantra, who 
are floating in the ocean, discover this box and open it.  They are 
surprised to see Kausalya.  Dasaratha marries Kausalya immediately in 
gandharva vivaha fashion and all the three stay put in the box, exchanging 
stories. The shark carries the box again into the ocean.

Ravana calls Brahma and boasts that he has killed Dasaratha and abducted 
Kausalya.  Brahma laughs and tells him that they have already been married.
The angered Ravana calls for the shark and opens the box; out come the 
three people. The scared Ravana tries to kill them with his sword.  Brahma tries
to console him saying, " You put only one girl in the box and now she has
become three.  Is it not possible that many more will be coming out of the box?
Rama could be one of them.  Just close the box and send it to Ayodhya".

So, Ravana asks his servants to leave the box near Ayodhya.  The box is 
discovered by the people of Ayodhya.  The Kosala king gives his daughter,
Kausalya, in marriage to Dasaratha in a formal ceremony.

Thus ends this episode with a happy ending, as will be the characteristic of
most events in Ananda Ramayanam.

1.2 Story behind the two boons given to  Kaikeyi:

Valmiki's original Ramayanam version:

Once, Dasaratha helps the Devas in their fight with asuras. Dasaratha 
takes Kaikeyi with him.  Valmiki Ramayanam - Ayodhya Kandam -
9th sargam sloka 16 states that Kaikeyi takes Dasaratha away from the 
battlefield when he becomes tired and swoons in his chariot.  She attends to 
him and gets him back to good health.  Dasaratha subsequently wins the war
with the asuras. The pleased Dasaratha grants her two boons, which she
chooses to use later.  

Ananda Ramayanam gives a different story.

During the Deva-asura fight, the stick or support that holds the wheel to
the chariot, breaks in Dasaratha's chariot and the chariot is about to
collapse.  Kaikeyi places her left hand in the place of the wheel-holder, 
in order to help her husband proceed without interruption.  Finally, Dasaratha 
is victorious and being pleased with Kaikeyi's help, grants her two boons.Connected to this story is the following anecdote about Kaikeyi:Once, Kaikeyi, when she is very young, makes a paste out of coal and applies
it on the face of a sage, for fun.  He curses her saying "later in life,
you will be put to shame - no one would like to see your face even".  Kaikeyi
gets scared and brings a stick to him, so he can punish her.  The pleased
sage grants a boon - " you left hand will be as strong as iron and will
never fail in any instance".  "

What Is The Color of Lord Rama Blue Black Dark Brown

In Hinduism on July 12, 2014 at 11:00

It is generally believed that Lord Ram is blue back in Color.


Ladies in Tami Nadu  has a Name for this color, Rama Blue.


It is a mix of Blue and Black.

Lord Ram with Hanuman.jpg

Lord Ram with Hanuman.



Valmiki Describes Rama’s Complexion thus.


“Hanuman to Sita.

dundubhi svana nirghoShaH snigdha varNaH prataapavaan |
samaH sama vibhakta ango varNam shyaamam samaashritaH || 5-35-16

16. dundubhisvananirghoSaH= He has a voice like the sound of a kettle-drum; snigdhavarNah= He has a shining skin; prataapavaan= He is full of splendour; samaH= He is square-built; samavibhaktaaN^gaH= His limbs are symmetrically built; samaashritaH= He is endowed with; shyaamam varNam= a dark-brown complexion.

“He has a voice like the sound of a kettle-drum. He has a shining skin. He is full of splendour. He is square-built. His limbs are built symmetrically. He is endowed with a dark-brown complexion.” Sundara Kanda Sarga  35 Sloka 16.

Rama, whose face is like the full moon, of dark brown complexion, whose collar-bone is invisible (because of its being covered with flesh), a conqueror of foes, whose arms descend to his knees, whose eyes resemble lotuses, the elder brother of Lakshmana, who takes initiative in speaking and expresses with sweetness, truthful of speech and possessed of extra ordinary strength, is benevolent to all, delightfully charming as the moon, that tiger among men, as mighty as an elephant in rut, that great car-warrior, will surely adorn the woods, while roaming through them..

(Valmiki Ramayan – Book II : Ayodhya Kanda – Book of Ayodhya: Chapter 48.)

There is a doubt.

Rama was born in Ayodhya, in North India where they are fair skinned.

Rama, ‘Dark-brown?’

Dravidians have this complexion.

Yet another twist.

““In the four yugas—Satya, Tretä, Dväpara and Kali—the Lord incarnates in four colors: white, red, black and yellow respectively. These are the colors of the incarnations in different millenniums.
Madhya 20.330

The yugas are known as Satya-yuga, Treta-yuga, Dvapara-yuga and Kali-yuga. The incarnations of each yuga are of different color. The colors are white, red, black and yellow. In the Dvapara-yuga, Lord Krsna in black color appeared, and in the Kali-yuga Lord Caitanya in yellow color appeared.
–Purport Srimad Bhagavatam 1.3.5.

One has to take Valmiki’s word as final,
