Now there is further information ,thanks to pioneering research by Dr.Vartak in Indian Texts.

The Vedas, especially the Rig Veda describes procedure for Clonig a Cow from a Cow’s skin.

The steps.

1.Selection of a suitable cow.

This is determined by the quantity of Milk yielded by the Cow.

2.Rearing the Cow.

The Cow was fed on natural diet and to facilitate increased Milk Yield , its Calf was left nearby to induce the Cow to secret more Milk naturally.

3. Taking the skin of a Healthy Cow.

4..Produce  anew Cow by cloning.

Three Rishis , Rubhus were the scientists who carried out the project.

the Rubhus gave new mothers to orphaned calves. This fact definitely shows that Rubhus were working on cows. 

Rig Veda  states that Rubhus were fully engrossed in the work of creating a cow etc. and therefore they refused to attend a Yajna. However, they promised to attend the Yajna after completing the work’ (RV.1-161-3)

For their great research they had to maintain a cow shed and protect their cows, just like a good son protects his mother. For their experiments one cow was not sufficient. They needed many cows. Therefore, they organized cows in great numbers, which were kept safe and protected in the cowsheds. During their experiments many cows might have died, leaving behind their calves orphaned. For those orphans they had to give new mothers and for that reason they organized mothers. (Apinshat RV. 4-33-4 ).

To produce plenty of milk a cow must have her calf nearby. This psychology of cows must have been noted by them so that they worked on mothers and calves. They must have examined human mothers and children also while doing that research. (RV. 1-111-1)

While doing this type of research on cows and calves, Rubhus attained a great knowledge and were inspired to produce a living cow from a cow’s skin. This was held by the sages as a divine work of great talents. Hence it cannot be neglected as a toy making. A hidebound man without thinking seriously may say that Rubhus prepared a toy, having a shape of a cow, from some hide. But then that work would not have been held with high esteem as is done by the Rigveda. Moreover, toy making needs no preliminary pains of working continuously on cows and calves for a prolonged period, neglecting Yajnas, as was done by Rubhus. Again, the Rigveda says that Rubhus made a living cow which was made a mother by producing a calf from it. (RV. 1-110-8). That newly prepared cow was named as ‘Vishvaroopa’ and it was ‘Vishvajuvam’ (RV. 4-33-8), which means matching with the world. It was similar to the other cows in the world. Bruhaspati accepted this cow Vishvaroopa happily, as a gift, which was created by Rubhus.(RV. 1-161-6).

The Rubhus created a cow from skin of a cow. (RV. 1-161-7, 3-60-2, 4-36-4). It was the first ever production of a living clone, from a part of a body namely skin of a cow. The modern science has now proved it possible by producing a lamb Dolly from udder of a sheep. Udder is nothing else but a part of skin.

The Rubhus produced another clone by their supreme intellingence.(RV. 3-60-2). They created a horse from another. (RV. 1-161-7). The Rigveda not recorded from which part of a horse they produced another horse. One may say that a horse may be produced by copulation of a horse with a mare. But in that case no sensible person will ever say that Rubhus created a horse. It is a nature’s creation. In the Rigveda the verb used is ‘Atakshat’ This verb may suggest carpentry; but that horse was not created from wood or timber, it was created from another horse. (RV. 1-161-7). It took involvement of Rubhus for a prolonged period. (RV.1-161-3). Therefore carpentry is out of question. Then the only thing remains that the Rubhus cloned a horse from another horse.

To achieve that knowledge Rubhus worked with horses too. (RV. 1-111-1). To begin with they produced two horses, and trained them to be yoked to a chariot. (RV. 1-20-2). These two horses were presented to Indra. They were very fast and powerful. (RV. 4-35-5). After this work they produced a horse from another horse with their intellectual skill. (RV. 1-161-7, 4-33-10). That horse was called as ‘Hari’ and was presented to Indra, who accepted it. Hari was yoked to a chariot. (RV. 1-161-7). This fact proves that Hari was a real living horse, and not a toy.’

Srividya Ganapathi.

Śrī Vidyā Gaṇapati Vāñcha kalpalatā mantra

श्री विद्या गणपति वाञ्छ कल्पलता मन्त्र

This mantra is a combination of mantras of Gaṇapati, Saubhāgya Pañcadaśī and Gāyatrī.

Vāñcha means wishing or the one who desires for something and kalpalatā means granting all desires. (Dictionary meaning of kalpalatā – a creeper that grants all desires).

When a boon is granted, it is because of three reasons if the Deity is satisfied.

1.The Karma Phala is due and it is hastened(Karma Phala means results of Righteous actions)

2.The Deity is pulled by the God by the power of the Mantra.

3.The God is pleased and He grants the boon with Love and affection.( Vancha)

Vancha is a difficult word to translate into English.

It is akin to love one feels spontaneously to wards a child or a total stranger moved by their mere sight.

This is the mantra:

om śrīṁ hrīṁ klīṁ glauṁ gaṁ

aiṁ ka e ī la hrīṁ

tat saviturvareṇyaṁ

gaṇapataye ।

klīṁ ha sa ka ha la hrīṁ

bhargo devasya dhīmahi

varavarada ।

sauḥ sa ka la hrīṁ

dhiyo yo naḥ pracodayāt

sarvajanaṁ me vaśamānaya svāhā ॥

ॐ श्रीं ह्रीं क्लीं ग्लौं गं

There is Sri Vidya Ganapathi Vancha Kalpalatha Homa.

This Homa can be conducted only SRIVIDHYA UPASANA VEDIC PANDIT..
This is a very rare Homa and who knows the concept of this Homa will perform this Homa
Chanting Vancha Kalpa Latha Ganapathi Manthra is equivalent to 444 times of chanting regular Sri Maha ganapathi manthra. So to say performing of Sri vancha kalpalatha Homa is equivalent to performing of 444 times of Sri Maha Ganapathi Homa.
Benefits of the Homa.
1. Prosperity happiness and wealth in the family.
2. All obstacles related Marriage, official career, puthra bhagya, prosperity in life and all negative aspects in the family will vanish.
3.Grants the benefit arising out of taking bath in Holy rivers .
4.Chanting all Vedas one can certainly realize
5.Offering Brahman Bhojan to 1000 Vedic Brahmins .

Goddess Andal Takes Oil Bath Srivilliputhur Ennai Kaapu


One of the special features of Hinduism is its treatment of Gods and Goddesses as human beings and interacting with them as with humans.

God can not be known.

But can be and is felt.

Divine experience relates to Heart , emotions and feelings and never to Mind and Brain.

The fact is despite all reasoning and Rationalism Man is driven by emotions and lives by it.

The sense of devotion is heightened when one treats as one among ourselves and not some one or thing which sits in a Lofty tower wielding clubs and delivering punishment.

I can never relate to this God.

Goddess Andal's Hair being combed.jpg Goddess Andal’s Hair being combed.Margazhi Utsavam

I relate to God as a Human Being till I spiritually evolve to know that He is a Principle.

Till then I shall treat Him as my Father, Mother, Brother, Teacher, Lover and Friend.

The Path of Devotion called Bhakti Marga is this.

One gets engrossed in the emotion of God and gets spiritually elated.

In Tamil literature there are poems belonging to the Middle Ages, around 1200 -1400 extolling this aspect of Bhakthi, propagated by Azhwars( of Vishnu) and Nayanmaras( of Shiva)

Each temple in India is associated with the activity of God a Human Being and there are temple festivals relating to them, when these events are enacted.

Andal Ennaikkaappu .jpg Andal Ennaikkaappu

In Srivilliputhur, The Home of Andal one of the Saints of Hinduism and Vishnu Chitta, her father, both of them venerated Azhvars( which happens to be my place of Birth and early schooling) this interaction of Man and God is very much in evidence in the form of Festivals.

One special Festival is the bathing of Andal in Oil.

Then she is bathed with a specil bathing powder Snana Powder, whic is miles ahead of your Shampoos in therms of clearing oil and emitting fragrance)

The she is decked up.

This is called Ennaikkappu(anointment of Oil)

Gingelly Oil is anointed to the Utsava Murthy of Andal.

This festival falls on the last seven days of Margazhi,Mrigasira month(December end, January first week) and one day in Thai Month(Makara Sankaranthi)

‘Margazhi Ennai Kappu Utsavam is presently taking place at Srivilliputtur Sri Andal Rangamannar Divya Desam. Ennai Kappu Utsavam is annually celebrated during the last eight days of the Margazhi month. During this utsavam, Andal is taken to the Ennai Kappu mandapam and thailam is applied by the Battars to Andal and the uapcharams is  performed by Archakars. The highlighted fact of this utsavam is the famous Souri kondai. There are four sessions in a day during Ennai kappu – first from moolastanam special alangarams is performed for example Azagarkolam, Krishanar kolam and Muthangi; then the second session is the Ennai kappu kollam with Andal in Souri Kondai; the third session is Thirumanajam; and the fourth session  is Vahana Seva (different vahanams on the 8 days).’

Arjuna Visited Tirupati Papavinasa Theertha


Countless Pilgrimages were taken by people belonging to Mahabharata times to South India.

And contrary to what people think Tirupati is 2100 Million Years old.

Route taken by Arjuna in his Pilgrimage.jpg Arjuna’s Pilgrimage,Route.

Geologists have dated this and the information tallies with what Hindu Puranas say about the age of the Hills.

It is about 21oo Million years old.’

The List includes,

Lord Krishna,

Balarama,

The Pandavas,

Karna….

I had written an article on the Pilgrimage undertaken by Arjuna to South India.

papavinasam-theertham.jpg

Papavinasana Theertha, Tirupati.

Among other places visited by Arjuna, he visited Tirupati, had Darshan of Lord Varaha ,Balaji  and took a holy dip in the Papavinasana Theertha for atoning the sin of seeing Yudhistra and Draupadi together.(Skanda Purana)

Tirupati Papnanasa Theertham.jpg Tirupati Papnanasa Theertham.

When the five Pandavas were living together with their wife Draupadi, they had an arrangement,that Draupadi shall live as wife together with one of the Five and the other four Pandvas shall not be with her.

Sri Vatsam of balaji, Tirupati.jpgi.

Lord Balaji, Tirupati.

 

At a point of time, Yudhistra was living with Draupadi.

 

Agni,God Fire,in the guise of a Brahmin sought the help of  Arjuna to help  ease his hunger.

 

Arjuna,being a Kshatriya and a King, could not but to accede to Agni’s request.

 

Without knowing who Agni was and what his hunger was for, Arjuna agreed and was  shocked to know it was Agni and his hunger was for burning down the Kanadava Forest.

 

He was in a dilemma for as a King he(Prince)  he had a duty to protect   forests with the animals living in it.

 

He consulted(who else?) Lord Krishna,who told him as a King and Kshatriya it was his duty to fulfill his promise .

 

( Krishna had a hidden agenda.

 

He knew that a great war will ensue , that Arjuna  did not have a powerful Bow and he waned Arjuna to possess one.

 

He engineered the whole event though Indra,father of Arjuna.)

 

As anticipated by Krishna Agni asked Vauna to give the best bow and he gave the Kandeeva to Arjuna.

 

Arjuna burnt the forest.

 

Agini gave him the Agneyastra as well.

 

When Arjuna came Home to take his old bow and arrows,he unintentionally saw Yudihistra and Draupadi together.

 

It is considered to be a sin to see man and wife together when they are intimate,Sastras declare and one has to atone for this,Prayaschitta.

 

One of the Prayascitta was going on a Pilgrimage.

 

Krishna advised the Prayaschitta of Pilgrimage as He wanted Arjuna to get the help of as many Kings as possible for the Mahabharata war(Arjuna was not aware of the fact).

 

Arjuna went on a Pilgrimage of India and in the process married many a princesses,including the daughter of a Pandya king-the Pandya fought the war along with the Panadvas.

 

Vyasa gives a detailed description of the route taken by Arjuna during the Pilgrimage.’

Papavinasam Theertham is around 2 miles from Tirumala and is a beautiful waterfall in the region. The devotees also believe a holy dip at this site can relieve them from their sins and evils. There are separate dressing rooms at this site for men and women, where they can change their dresses. The reservoir near the dam restricts the water flow in this theertham.

OM Alters Genes Immunity Massachusetts General Hospital


Scientific study of OM is gaining currency in the West and numerous researches have proved its unique features.

Its ability to affect the Electro Magnetic Filed around and in us.

OM, 3 D Wall paper.jpg OM, 3 D Wall paper.

Its resonance is that of the Earth, Schumann Resonance.

OM’s effects on the individual’s mind state, especially the Alpha Waves is staggering.

I have published articles on these subjects.

Chanting God's Name and Mantra.gif Chanting God’s Name and Mantra- a Comparison.

Researchers in the Massachusetts General Hospital have found,

that the relaxation response – a state of deep rest attained through breathing, meditation, yoga and other practices — triggers changes in gene expression that can affect the body’s immune function, energy metabolism and insulin secretion. The new research — the first to look at rapid, gene-level changes following the relaxation practice — is published in the journal PLOS ONE.

Herbert Benson, a senior author of the new study, first described the “relaxation response” — what he calls the physiologic opposite of fight-or-flight — nearly 40 years ago. He’s now the director emeritus of the Benson-Henry institute for Mind-Body Medicine at MGH, where the technique is used to help patients manage a wide variety of medical conditions from anxiety and chronic pain to cancer.

Benson says the new research should give a credibility boost to his endeavors (which, by the way, non-Westerners have been practicing in various forms for thousands of years). “There’s now a scientific basis for these mind-body approaches that work,” Benson said. “For the mainstream, every little bit of evidence helps.”

Benson’s collaborator, Towia Libermann, PhD, director of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) Genomics, Proteomics, Bioinformatics and Systems Biology Center and co-senior author of the study, says the evidence clearly links the relaxation response to rapid changes in gene expression. “There is a relatively small subset of biological pathways affected by relaxation response,” he said. For instance, a pathway involved in immune disturbances and inflammation was repressed after the relaxation technique while another set of pathways involved in mitochondrial function and energy production were enhanced.

The study involved 52 people — 26 were long-time practitioners of the relaxation response, 26 had never done it, but were trained in the technique. The subjects had blood drawn before, immediately after they practiced, and 15 minutes later, and then researchers used advanced gene expression profiling and systems biology analysis to determine any changes in gene expression. These changes, Libermann said, occurred in both groups but were more pronounced among the long-time relaxers.

Libermann, who has been working with Benson for 10 years, says he was drawn to this research “to convince myself that there’s really something going on here, and it’s not just a placebo effect.” Now, he says: “I’m pretty convinced.” He and Benson are currently investigating whether the relaxation response triggers molecular-level changes in people with hypertension, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and other diseases.

Here’s more from MGH:

In 2008, Benson and Libermann led a study finding that long-term practice of the relaxation response changed the expression of genes involved with the body’s response to stress. The current study examined changes produced during a single session of relaxation response practice, as well as those taking place over longer periods of time.

The study enrolled a group of 26 healthy adults with no experience in relaxation response practice, who then completed an 8-week relaxation response training course. Prior to starting their training, the participants went through what was essentially a control group session – blood samples were taken before and immediately after they listened to a 20-minute health education CD and again 15 minutes later. After completing the training course, a similar set of blood tests was taken before and after participants listened to a 20-minute CD used to elicit the relaxation response as part of daily practice.

The sets of blood tests taken before the training program were designated “novice,” and those taken after training completion were categorized as from “short-term practitioners.” For further comparison a similar set of blood samples was taken from a group of 25 individuals with 4 to 25 years experience regularly eliciting the relaxation response through many different techniques before and after they listened to the same relaxation response CD. Blood samples from all participants were analyzed to determine the expression of more than 22,000 genes at the different time points.

The results revealed significant changes in the expression of several important groups of genes between the novice samples and those from both the short- and long-term sets, with even more pronounced changes in the long-term practitioners. A systems biology analysis of known interactions among the proteins produced by the affected genes revealed that pathways involved with energy metabolism, particularly the function of mitochondria, were upregulated during the relaxation response. Pathways controlled by activation of a protein called NF-κB – known to have a prominent role in inflammation, stress, trauma and cancer – were suppressed after relaxation response elicitation. The expression of genes involved in insulin pathways was also significantly altered.’

OM Earth’s Breath 7.83 Hz,Schumann Resonance


The sound OM (A,U,M) is the sacred chant of Sanatana Dharma, Hinduism.

OM.jpg OM

Sounds originate from three points in the Human Body.

From the Mouth,

Throat and

Abdomen.

The alphabets of any and every Language must have these letters.

Schumann Resonance.In the Brain.jpg Schumann Resonance.In the Brain

These letters constitute the entire Universe by their vibrations.

The Universe Vibrates.

Universe is always in Motion.

Motion produces Vibration.

There is a controversy about Vibration and Sound.

Which precedes or causes the other?

Does sound cause Vibration or is it the other way around?

We can observe sound creating vibration and vibration causing sound.

Not all vibrations can cause observable sound.

These vibrations exist in the Universe and within ourselves.

The vibrations can be studied by Spectroscopy.

These vibrations have a direct effect on Electromagnetism.

Our Brain and our nervous system, as we all know, consist of Nerve cells.

Nerve Cells transmit messages to the Brain

Nerve Cells consist of Axon,Dendrites and Nuclei.

When we receive a message or a stimulation of our senses these sensations are carried to the brain by a chain of nerve cells,one transmitting to another.

But there is a microscopic gap between one Nerve( I have used this term so that people can understand-Axon and Dendrites terms are not used in the article.Those interested may read a chapter on Nervous system from any standard text-book for Class x/xii). and another.

This gap is called the Synaptic Gap.

Earlier it was believed that the messages from one nerve to another is being transmitted by a chemical in the Gap.

Now it is found that the messages pass through this gap electromagnetically.

That is your stimuli is converted into electro magnetic wave and is sent across and this is received by the Brain and it decodes and assigns the messages to their respective slots in the Brain.

 

Now any and everything in the Universe vibrates from the Atom to the Galaxies.

So when the is a stimuli there is electro magnetic activity.

Ultimately our brain decodes everything electro magnetically and it is converted into understandable message when they are processed and sent back.

These vibrations as understood  in the light of electromagnetism has thrown some interesting results.

As said earlier, every thing vibrates, including the Earth.

And Vibration causes resonance.

Earth moves, is in Motion and hence Vibrates.

So it ought to produce Electro Magnetic Waves.

Schumann Resonance.

‘The Schumann resonances (SR) are a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low-frequency (ELF) portion of the Earth’s electromagnetic field spectrum. Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, generated and excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere…

Lightning discharges are considered to be the primary natural source of Schumann resonance excitation; lightning channels behave like huge antennas that radiate electromagnetic energy at frequencies below about 100 kHz.These signals are very weak at large distances from the lightning source, but the Earth–ionosphere waveguidebehaves like a resonator at ELF frequencies and amplifies the spectral signals from lightning at the resonance frequencies.

In an ideal cavity, the resonant frequency of the n-th mode f_{n} is determined by the Earth radius a and the speed of light c.

f_{n} =\frac{c}{2 \pi a}\sqrt{n(n+1)}

The real Earth–ionosphere waveguide is not a perfect electromagnetic resonant cavity. Losses due to finite ionosphere electrical conductivity lower the propagation speed of electromagnetic signals in the cavity, resulting in a resonance frequency that is lower than would be expected in an ideal case, and the observed peaks are wide. In addition, there are a number of horizontal asymmetries – day-night difference in the height of the ionosphere, latitudinal changes in the Earth’s magnetic field, sudden ionospheric disturbances, polar cap absorption, variation in the Earth radius of ± 11 km from equator to geographic poles, etc. that produce other effects in the Schumann resonance power spectra…

This global electromagnetic resonance phenomenon is named after physicist Winfried Otto Schumann who predicted it mathematically in 1952. Schumann resonances occur because the space between the surface of the Earth and the conductive ionosphere acts as a closed waveguide. The limited dimensions of the Earth cause this waveguide to act as a resonant cavity for electromagnetic waves in the ELF band. The cavity is naturally excited by electric currents in lightning. Schumann resonances are the principal background in the electromagnetic spectrum beginning at 3 Hz and extending to 60 Hz, and appear as distinct peaks at extremely low frequencies (ELF) around 7.83 (fundamental),14.3, 20.8, 27.3 and 33.8 Hz.

In the normal mode descriptions of Schumann resonances, the fundamental mode is a standing wave in the Earth–ionosphere cavity with a wavelength equal to the circumference of the Earth. This lowest-frequency (and highest-intensity) mode of the Schumann resonance occurs at a frequency of approximately 7.83 Hz, but this frequency can vary slightly from a variety of factors, such as solar-induced perturbations to the ionosphere, which comprises the upper wall of the closed cavity.[citation needed] The higher resonance modes are spaced at approximately 6.5 Hz intervals

Schumann Resonance.

Studies indicate the chanting of OM produces the same frequency as that of Earth, 7.83 Hz.

Resonances of earth, ie, 7.83,  13.7, 19.6, 25.5, 31.4, 37.3 and 43.2 Hertz of earth. We all know 7.83 hz being the strongest of all, OM or Schumann frequency.

Ohm- 7.83Hz
Gam – 13.7Hz
Hleem – 19.6Hz
Hreem – 25.5Hz
Kleem – 31.4Hz
Krowm – 37.3Hz
Sreem – 43.2Hz

The Schumann Resonances are the result of cosmic energy build-up within the cavity that exists between Earth’s highly conductive surface and the conducting layer in the upper atmosphere called the ionosphere. the space between the surface of the earth and the conductive ionosphere acts as a waveguide. The cavity is naturally excited by energy from lightning strikes. This ionospheric charge creates an electrical shield around the Earth.. The atmosphere is a dielectric insulator, which separates the two. Thus a spherical capacitor as well as a spherical resonator is created and maintained. Electrical signals of sufficient wavelength (low-frequency) are wave-guided around and around between this “sphere within a sphere” and is the base Schumann Resonance of 7.8Hz mainly traveling from West to East.

7.83 HZ or the ALPHA frequency  is the gateway that leads into deeper states of consciousness.

Most people are in an alpha state during the short time immediately before they fall asleep and when the conscious nervous system switches over to the subconscious.

Mariamman Renuka Devi Or Draupadi,Betrayed Wife Cult?


There are various legends on Mariamman, a form of Devi in South India.

Mariamman is believed to cure among other diseases, Smallpox.

Samayapuram Mariamman.jpg

Samayapuram Mariamman.

And also sores, ghouls, pustules and diseases.

Worship of Mariamman is prevalent in the Villages in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra, though the worship is more prevalent in Tamil Nadu

Famous Samayapuram Mariamman Temple is near Tiruchi/Srirangam.

“Miracle Based : Mother Mariamman undergoes a fast for the welfare of mankind for 28 days from the last Sunday of Masi month-February-March. During these days no cooked preparation is offered as nivedhana but only some flour, orange, grapes and green coconut. For completing this fasting, abishek is offered to Amman only with flowers – Poo in Tamil and this event is known as Poo Choridal.”

The State of Tamil Nadu has several divine abodes of Goddess Shakthi. Shakthi cults prevalent in different ages are manifested in the temples. One of such divine abodes is Arulmighu Mariamman, Samayapuram in Trichy District. This Temple is known to occupy a prominent position among the temples dedicated to Goddess Shakthi. This temple is situated in beautiful land scape enriched by the Holy River Cauvery. The Temple is Situated in the Chennai – Trichy National Highway 15 K.M. from Trichy.

Trichy can be reached by train from Chennai, Madurai, and places, and also by airways from Chennai. The Goddess Mariamman is very powerful, devotees. wishes are fulfilled by the Goddess. Persons affected by Chickenpox and Smallpox come to this place, stay here and pray the Goddess for speedy recovery. Abisheka Theertham (Divine Water) is sprinkled on them after Pooja and they get recovered very quickly. There is a separate rest hall for their stay in the temple.

In ancient time This region was ruled by Chola Kings. Samayapuram is also known by the names Kannanur, Kannanpuram, Vikramapuram and Mahalipuram in ancient times. Flower sprinkling (Poochoridal) festival is conducted during the month of March and Chithirai Car festival is conducted during the month of April. Devotees offer prayer by rolling themselves around the temple prakaram (corridor) known as Angapradatchinam.

Samayapuram Mariamman Temple is one of the renowned Shakthi shrines of Tamilnadu. In recent times, the temple has gained a vast popularity. Devotees throng here from various parts of the country. The saying goes, “Samayapurthal will protect her devotees in times of need” (Samayapuram Mariamman Samayathil Kaappal – in Tamil). It is the faith of the people that Mariamman will protect them though they are far away from her in other places of the world.

This is one of the largest temples of the state earning high revenues for the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowment with huge inflow of devotees. Thali the Mangal Sutra offered by women are the majority of the offerings in the Hundi of the temple. Diseases are cured without surgery in many cases. Many devotees visit this temple from Karnataka, as Mariamman resembles the Chamundeeswari of Mysore. There is also a story that Emperor Dasaratha visited Samayapuram to worship Mariamman.

She is reported to have given Darshan to a British Collector during the British Rule.Please read my article on this.

She is considered to be an Avatar of Durga.

Another version states that she was the wife of Jamadagni and mother of Parashurama and Parashurama accidentally cut of a cleaning woman while trying to fulfill his father’s orders to kill Jamadagni’s Wife(Renuka) because she sawa Gandharva in the reflection of River water while trying to get water for Pooja and thought for a fleeting moment how a Human being could be so beautiful!

Mariamman is worshiped as Sitala Devi in North India widely by many faiths in North India, West Bengal, Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan as the pox-goddess. She is the Goddess of sores, ghouls, pustules and diseases.

Goddess Durga has incarnated as little Katyayani, the daughter of sage Katyayan to destroy all arrogant evil demonic forces of the world, in her real form as Durga, she killed many demons that were sent by Kaalkeya.

A demon named Jwarasur, the demon of fever, started spreading incurable diseases to Katyayani’s childhood friends, such as cholera, dysentery, measles, smallpox etc. Katyayani cured the diseases of some of her friends. To relieve the world from all fevers and diseases, Katyayani assumed the form of Shitala Devi. Each of her four hands held a short broom, winnowing fan, jar of cooling water and a drinking cup. With her power, she cured all the children’s diseases. Katyayani then requests her friend, Batuk to go out and confront the demon Jwarasur. A battle ensued between the young Batuk and demon Jwarasur. Jwarasur succeeds in defeating Batuk. Then, Batuk, lying dead, magically faded into dust. Jwarasur was shocked that Batuk disappeared and wondered where he went. Then, what he doesn’t know that Batuk has assumed the form of an awful male figure. This person was three-eyed and had four arms. He held a battle-axe, sword, trident and demon head. He was pitch-black in color. His hair was flowing. Eyes blazed with fury. This figure wore a tiger-skin and a garland of skulls. Batuk assumed the form of Lord Shiva’s ferocious form, the terrible Bhairav. Bhairav reprimands Jwarasur and tells him that he is the servant of Goddess Durga (Katyayani). A long discussion ensued but then converted into battle. Jwarasur created many demons from his powers but Bhairav managed to destroy all of them. Finally, Bhairav wrestled with Jwarasur and killed him with his trident.

Shitala literally means “one who cools” in Sanskrit. Shitala is worshipped under different names in various parts of the subcontinent. Shitala is more often called Ma (‘mother’) and is worshipped by Hindus, Buddhists and tribal communities. She is mentioned in Tantric and Puranic literature and her later appearance in vernacular texts (such as the Bengali 17th century Shitala-mangal-kabyas, ‘auspicious poetry’) has contributed to strengthen her status.

Shitala is primarily popular among the people of North India. In some traditions she is identified with an aspect of Parvati, the consort of Shiva. Shitala is addressed as Mother, as a seasonal goddess (Vasant, i.e. Spring) and with honorific titles such as Thakurani, Jagrani (Queen of the World), Karunamayi (She who is full of mercy), Mangala (The Auspicious One), Bhagavati (The Goddess), Dayamayi (She who is Full of Grace and Kindness). The role of Shitala in South India is taken by the Goddess Mariamman, who is worshipped by the Dravidian-speaking people .

There is also a view that she is Draupadi of Mahabharata.

Yet another version states that she represents the betrayed women thus.

‘The popular mythology is her being Durgamma, daughter of a priest. She is allured into marriage by her dishonest husband. One day he expressed desire to consume the tongue of a cow. Durgamma realises that husband was a Brahmin in disguise. In her fury, she transformed into a Goddess, picked up a sickle and cut off the head of the imposter. That started off a betrayed wife cult. ”

I do not seem to find any Vedic or Ithihasa refernce to any of this, that Mariaamman being any of these mentioned in any of these legends.

Stotra Mantra Parayana Differnce


Unlike other Religions,Hinduism has Prayers of different types.

There are three different types in terms of how these were arrived at, whom they are addressed to and the results sought for.

Before understanding the differences , one must know that in Hinduism, as its fundamental Truth as enunciated in the Vedas, the Sacred texts of the Hindus,describes the Reality, called Brahman, is distinct from Brahma, The God of Creation,is Without Name and Form.

The Brahman is with out Attributes, with Attributes and beyond Attributes,

It is to be experienced and is Beyond space,time,senses,mind and time.

It is Being, Consciousness and Bliss, Sat, Chit and Ananda.

The purpose of Life is to realize the Brahman, The Reality behind the noumenon, the world of Names and Forms, the substratum of the Universe, both Macro and Micro.

To achieve this, the impediment called Mind is to be Stilled.

The cessation of the Modification of Chitta is Yoga or Union with the Reality.

Ganesa Lakshmi Stotram.jpg

( Chitta is a Higher plane of Cognition, please read my posts on Yoga, Chitta)

To Still the Mind, the thoughts or the thought waves are to be stopped.

Rama, Hanuman. SundaraKanda Parayana.Jpg

Rama, Hanuman. SundaraKanda Parayana.

But as The Mind, by its nature, is always after a thousand thoughts, it is difficult to control it,

However it can be done by Right Determination,Knowledge and Practice, says Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita( Gnana and Vairaagya)

So in the process of quieting and making the Mind still, Hinduism advocates Worship of Gods with Forms, though in Reality they do not exist.

However as Krishna says , even these Gods of Names and forms are relatively Real in the sense that they grant the boons one wishes for and Krishna says He assumes the Forms and Names Of Gods and Goddesses addressed by the practitioner and deliver the results.

So Gods of Hinduism are Real and not Real at the same time.

For details read my post ‘Hinduism, Gods with Name and Form ,Yes Or No’.

As Human dispositions and needs are varied,, so are the Gods.

One may like Mother, Father, Friend , Lover, son, daughter…

To establish a relationship, each needs a unique approach and there can be no uniform and a single window approach.

So the Gods vary and your modes of address vary.

One does not address Mother as he would his Father, Lover or Friend.

So the prayers vary.

Generally there are three types of Prayers.

Avalokeswara Mantra.png

Avalokeswara Mantra.

1.Stotra/Stuthi.

2.Parayana and

3.Mantras.

Stotras.

Stotra is from the root Stuthi, meaning ‘Praise’

If one were to get some thing from some one superior in Station, one praises him or her to get the things done for one who wishes for.

So in a Stotra one finds Praises of Gods, extolling their virtues, then requesting them to grant one’s Wishes.

We have a large collection of these Stotras.

These Stotras are also of different kinds.

One is by Gods themselves addressing the other Gods, like Krishna’s Siva Stuthi or Rudra’s Mantra Rajapadham addressed to Lord Narasimha, Indra’s Krishna Stuthi.

These are addreed to Gods whom one likes.

Another type is by the Great Rishis , like Hayagreeva’s Lalitha Sahasranama.

Yet another type is by great personalities like Bhishma, The Vishnu Sahasranama; the various slokas of Adi Shankaracharya, Swami Desikan,Ramanujacharya, Madhwacharya….

All these deliver results in terms of efficacy in the descending order described

Some of these Rishis have Prayers to a Particular Deity.

In this case it is not necessary that the God one choses to worship need be what one likes.

These Gods produce results because of the fact that the Hymn is composed by a realized Soul.

2.Parayana.

A Stuthi or a Stotra by a Great Rishi like  Valmiki, The Sundara Kanda of Ramayana is recited in a prescribed format for a fixed duration is called Parayana.

People also do this regularly as they do Lalitha Sahasra nama and Visnu Sahasranama.

The Parayana prayers may be from any of Language.

The basic requirement is Faith.

3.Mantra is different as they are locked Sounds . grasped by the Rishis, in a mysterious way.

Mantras, are the essence of Sound and Sound in its pure form is Mantra.

Mantras control Sound.

The difference between Mantras and the other two Types is that Mantras deliver guaranteed results, if one follows the procedures laid down.

Whereas in the case of Stotra or Parayana,the Divine intervention is left to  the pleasure of the God addressed to, in the case of Mantras, the Gods are obliged to grant the requests as they represent the essence of Reality and in fact the Form of Gods themselves.

That is why even A Raskshasa can deliver a Brahmastra by invoking a Mantra.

Mantras can be addressed to specific Gods and also to Reality in its Attributeless Form.

Or the Mantra can be a combination of sounds mystically locked.

Sita Elder To Lord Rama?


There is information floating around the web that Sita was elder to Lord Rama by six months and many are quoting this to justify marrying an elder woman.

Ram and Sita seated, Image.gif

Lord Rama and Sita, Image credit, www,indiatemplesinfo.com

‘Though we have many examples of wife being elder than her husband in puranas, like Sita was 6 months elder than Rama, Radha was elder than Krishna and even in the case of Shiva and Shakthi according to Shakthi purana, it was Shakthi who created Shiva, Bramha, Vishnu and proposes them to marry her. But do you know who is known for, the huge difference in age among spouses?”

Source.http://aavaahana.blogspot.in/2012/01/elderly-wives-or-companions-of-puranas.html

 

This information is incorrect.

Valmiki clearly declares thus, about the ages of Rama and Sita, through Sita during her conversation with Ravana when he was  about to abduct her.

This is the Sloka.

mama bhartaa mahaatejaa vayasaa pa.nca vi.mshakaH || 3-47-10
aSTaa dasha hi var.hSaaNi mama janmani gaNyate | Aranya Kanda

10b, 11. mahaatejaa mama bhartaa= great resplendent my, husband; vayasaa panca vimshakaH= by age, five, twenty – twenty-five years; mama janmani= my, from birth; aSTaa dasha varSaaNi hi= eight, ten – eighteen, years, only; gaNyate= reckoned up.

“My great-resplendent husband was of twenty-five years of age at that time, and to me eighteen years are reckoned up from my birth. [3-47-10b, 11a]’

(The Shastras declare that a Man should marry a woman who is younger to him , though the ge difference is varied in different Shastras.

The important reason for this is that women age faster and become weak when compared to Men because of women giving birth to children and it is the duty of the Husband to take care of his wife during her advanced age.

And if the woman is elder to him, the problem of assisting the wife during her advanced years by the husband becomes more difficult.)

Chanted OM Produces Sri Yantra in Tonoscope


I have,in a post  on Paranormal, narrated my experience, during my college days, as to how the various Gayatri Mantras ,when intoned properly, produced the corresponding God’s Image in a TV Monitor.

Om, Hindu Symbol.jpg Om, Hindu Symbol.

Sri Yantra 3 D Image.jpg Sri Yantra 3 D Image.

Quite a few were sceptical on this.

I write what I believe /know to be true as I do not belong to Ideology to promote.

I try to post facts as I see them.

In the process some times I may rescind some of my views in the light of new evidence.

This is applicable to posts relating to History of Sanatana Dharma, called Hinduism.

However I am yet to come across information that is reliable which contradicts the Truth as explained in the Hindu Texts.

OM produces Sri Yantra.jpg OM produces Sri Yantra.Tonoscope Image on your right. Image credit.http://www.thuban.spruz.com/

In the present article, I would like to share the proof that the sounds used in Hindu practices in Pooja, worship of Gods, really produce images corresponding to the Deities mentioned in the Mantras.

The fundamental sound of Hinduism is OM.

This sound has three letters.

A

U

M

For correct pronunciation one should listen to authentic Vedic chants, for a slight change in intonation changes the results.

Sounds in Humans rise from Three places in the Human body.

Mouth.

Throat and the

Base of Stomach, ( near Duodenum)

Most of the languages are built on these lines and Sanskrit is perfect in this aspect.

The sound A rises from  the Mouth,

U from the Throat and

M from the pit of the stomach.

These three letters together form OM .

This is the primordial sound of the Universe.

Please read my Post’The Universe hums OM with Audio, here I have shown that the Humming in the deep Galaxies produce the sound OM.

Now when OM is intoned in a Tonoscope, it throws the image of the Sri Yantra.

‘The Sri-Yantra-Mandala is the image of the OM mantra, the primordial Hindu sound of creation. When OM is intoned into a tonoscope, it first produces a circle. As the tone is completed, the circle is filled sequentially with concentric squares, triangles and finally, as the “mmm” dies away, the Sri Yantra

How do Yantras work? ?At the basis of yantra operation is something called “shape energy” or “form energy”. The idea is that every shape emits a very specific frequency and energy pattern. Examples of old believes in shape energy are the yantras and mandalas of eastern philosophies, the star of David, the five pointed star (pentagon), the Christian cross, the pyramids and so on. Certain ‘powers’ are ascribed to the various shapes.
When one focuses on a yantra, his mind is automatically “tuned in” by resonance into the specific form energy of that yantra. The process of resonance is then maintained and amplified. The yantra acts only as a “tune in” mechanism or a doorway. The subtle energy does not come from the yantra itself, but from the macrocosm.
Basically yantras are secret keys for establishing resonance with the benefit energies of the macrocosm. Very often the yantras can put us in contact with extremely elevated energies and entities, being of invaluable help on the spiritual path.

Rig Yajur Sama Atharva Vedas Personified Images


 

The scriptures of the Hindus, the Vedas, four in number, are the highest truths revealed to the seers.

The refrain of the Vedas is self-realization.

The core of the Vedas do not advocate Idol worship but a Higher Reality, Brahman , whose attributes are Being, Consciousness and Bliss-Sat, Chit and Ananda.

However idol worship is allowed to concentrate the mind.

The Four Vedas are.

Rig Veda- consisting of Hymns.

Yajur Veda, dealing with duties.

Sama Veda, essentially the Rig Veda set to Tones.

Atharva Veda, dealing with practical life, including Black Magic.

Please read my posts on the Vedas and god with and without form.

I have searched the images of the Vedas personified.

I could not find them.

I found them in Subrahmanya Samajam, Nallakunta, Hyderabad, where I had been to attend a function.

Here they are.

Vedic Sarasvati River Flows Again In Haryana


The Hindu Texts mention Sarasvati river exhaustively.

Sarasvathi River Found Sarasvathi River Found, Yamuna Nagar,Haryana.

The River Sarasvati is included in the Prokshana,Sandhyavandan and Snana Mantra..

Gange cha Yamenes chaiva Godavari Sarasvathi,

Narmade Sindhu Kaveri Jalesmin Sannidhim Kuru.

There was a Vedic civilization flourishing on the banks of the Sarasvati river and it was named as Sarasvati Civilization.

Initially all the references found in the Vedas,Puranas and Ithihasas were dismissed as Myths.

As science advances and the web becomes the source of information , which has been not available earlier, the Myths are found to be facts.

Starting from the dates of the Vedas, Ramayana , Mahabharata and Puranas, many of the events have been proved to be facts.

Recent to be proved is the River Sarasvati.

About five thousands year ago ,the Sarasvathy River flowed from Himalaya  in a south-westerly direction along Bata valley and crossed through present day Haryana, where geologists found pebbles generally transported by flowing water of rivers and refined sand generally found in a river path.

Now the Sarswathi river has been found by Geologists in Yamuna Nagar, Haryana.

The water of the river is very shallow – only six feet deep. Locals say that there is a continuous stream running underground as they have found water at 200 feet 1 km from Mugalwali.

Sky Maps Star Position During Rig Veda Rama Krishna Birth


Indian Puranas, History and The Epics are not fairy tales.

They are facts.

I have been verifying statements events mentioned in these texts with the help of Astronomy, etymology of word used,archeological evidence,Anthropology,Geology and tools like Carbon Dating, Atomic verification,Infra red evaluation.

I have published posts on many events narrated in the Indian Texts.

Now I am posting information on the appearance of the sky during,

The Rig Vedic Period,

Rama’s Birth,

Krishna’s Birth.

These maps have been arrived at running the references found in these instances through a Software designed to arrive at star positions and period..

Rig Vedic Period Sky Map.

There are 53 references in Rigveda as prayers offered to Aswinis at dawn. The description clearly points to the observation of the pair of stars in the Aries constellation (referred to as Aashvin or Asvini) just before sunrise as a ritual to mark the year beginning. Using Planetarium software, we find that the Winter Solstice occurred on 19 December, 7000 BC at 0735 hrs as shown in Figure 1. This is the earliest reference to Vedic calendar with year beginning at Winter Solstice, found in Rigveda (5-77-1/2; 1-46-14; 7-69-3/2). Heliacal rising of Ashwini Nakshatra (Aries) can be seen to occur on 5th January, 7000 BC, marking the year beginning (Fig. 1).

Skymap during Ri Vedic Period.png

Skymap during Ri Vedic Period.Fig. 1

Pre Dawn Sky during Rig Vedic Times.

A thousand years later, Winter Solstice no longer occurred near Aries (Asvini) due to precession. As a result, Ashwinis were no longer rising heliacally as before. They were still below the horizon at sunrise around Winter Solstice time. The Winter Solstice had moved to Revati by 6000 BC. Thus the precession of Equinoxes and Solistices was being observed by Rigvedic Scholars.

The Sky of 19th December, 6000 BC at sunrise on the Winter Solstice day shows that Ashvini gave way to bright star Chitra (α Vir) on opposite side (Western horizon). A full Moon in Chitra Nakshatra provided a new time marker in the sky and heralded the lunar month naming system-Chaitra, Vaisakha etc. (Rigveda: 5-74-1,2 and Tait Samh. 7-4-8). See Fig. 2 –

Rama’s Birth, Sky Map.

Rama was born on the Navami tithi of Shukla Paksha of Chaitra masa(9th day of the increasing phase of the moon in the lunar month of Chaitra).At that time, the nakshatra was Punarvasu, and Sun, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter and Venus were in Aries, Capricorn, Libra, Cancer and Pisces respectively. Lagna was Cancer and Jupiter & Moon were shining together. — Ramayana 1.18.8,9.

1. Sun in Aries
2. Saturn in Libra
3. Jupiter in Cancer
4. Venus in Pisces
5. Mars in Capricorn
6. Lunar month of Chaitra
7. 9th day after New Moon
(Navami Tithi, Shukla Paksh)
8. Moon near Punarvasu Nakshatra
(Pollux star in Gemini constellation)
9. Cancer as Lagna
(Cancer constellation rising in the east)
10. Jupiter above the horizon
The observations on the left, when entered into Planetarium software gives us the above Sky Chart, which in turns gives forth the below mentioned date.

Sri Rama Navami – 10th January 5114 BCE – Birth Day of Rama
Observation at 12.30 p.m.

Skymap During Krishna’s Birth.

Lord Krishna was born around midnight. That night was the eight phase of the moon known as Ashtami Tithi. The moon was near Vrshabha, the bull, i.e the Taurus constellation that houses the star Rohini. The star Rohini is known as Aldeberan in modern astronomy. The month was Shravana, one of the 12 months in the Indian calendar.

Shravana vada ashtami, Rohini Nakshtra, uditam Lagnam

1.Astronomical events repeat themselves at regular intervals.hence fixing one date is difficult.

We are taking the last event for calculation.

As time is Eternal and Cyclic, the events repeat themselves.

India Was Near North Pole Rodinia Continent Vedas In Arctic


Geological research throws interesting light on the formation of the Earth.

Surprising is the fact  that these researches validate the Indian Tets, Puranas, Ramayana and Mahabharata.

I have been writing on Sanatana Dharma, validating the events narrated in Indian texts with the help of Geology, Anthropology, Infra Red dating of Fossils, Etymology of the words in world languages, Cultural similarities and archeology,

These endeavours point out to the fact that the earth was one big land mass in the distant past, about 4 Billion years ago and the places mentioned in the Indian texts are validated by Geology.

Jwalapuram, Andhra Pradesh, India is about 74 Million Years old.

There is an archeological site near Chennai, India, which is one million years old.

I have written article on all these with evidence.

Benares, Varanasi, is the world’s oldest town being inhabited continuously.

Tamil , a language of India, is about a Million years old and they quote the Vedas and they in turn quote Tamil!

All the Great floods of India find reference in Indian Texts.

One great flood was after Ramayana about more than million years.

Another is around 30, 000 years ago when Dwaraka sank.

And evidence of these are found and I have written on these as well.

And there is Lemuria, the ancient land of the Tamils, along with Atlantis, Uighur.

Please read my posts on these.

While the initial landmass broke up, it baume Pangea, Sundaland, Lemuria in that order.

What can not be disputed is that there was a single landmass encompassing the earth.

These broke up into seven islands, the Dweepas of India.

 

The Continues also drift.

What if the drifting contents paced India, then called Bharatvarsha near the North Pole?

Our whole perception shall change and the Puranas stand validated.

Here is what Geology has to say, confirming my  theory that India was near the North Pole..

“In geology, Rodinia (from the Russian “Родина”, ródina, meaning “The Motherland”) is the name of a hypothesized supercontinent, a continent which contained most or all of Earth’s landmass. The name was coined by McMenamin & McMenamin in 1990. According to plate tectonic reconstructions, Rodinia existed between 1.1 billion and 750 million years ago[contradictory], in the Neoproterozoic Era. It is one of two models for the configuration and history of the continental crust in the latter part of Precambrian times. The other isPaleopangea.Rodinia is postulated to have formed at ~1.0 Ga by accretion and collision of fragments produced by breakup of a hypothetical older supercontinent, Columbia, assembled by global-scale 2.0–1.8 Ga collisional events.Rodinia has entered popular consciousness as one of the two great supercontinents of earth history, the other being Pangaea…

Rodinia’s landmass is considered to have been centered south of the equator.Most reconstructions show Rodinia’s core formed by the North American craton (the laterpaleocontinent of Laurentia), surrounded in the southeast with the East European craton (the later paleocontinent of Baltica), the Amazonian craton (“Amazonia”) and the West African craton; in the south with the Rio de la Plata and São Francisco cratons; in the southwest with the Congo and Kalahari cratons; and in the northeast with Australia, Indiaand eastern Antarctica. The positions of Siberia and North and South China north of the North American craton differ strongly depending on the reconstruction:

  • SWEAT-Configuration (Southwest US-East Antarctica craton): Antarctica is on the Southwest of Laurentia and Australia is at the North of Antarctica.
  • AUSWUS-Configuration (Australia-western US): Australia is at the West of Laurentia.
  • AUSMEX-Configuration (Australia-Mexico): Australia is at the location of nowadays Mexico relative to Laurentia.
  • The “Missing-link” model by Li et al. (2008) which has South China between Australia and the west coast of Laurentia.
  • Siberia attached to the western US (via the Belt Supergroup), as in Sears and Price (2000).
  • Rodinia of Scotese.

Little is known about the paleogeography before the formation of Rodinia. Paleomagnetic and geologic data are only definite enough to form reconstructions from the breakup of Rodinia onwards. Rodinia is considered to have formed between 1.1 billion and 1 billion years ago and broke up again before 750 million years ago.Rodinia was surrounded by the superocean geologists are calling Mirovia (from Russian мировой, mirovoy, meaning “global”).

 

The Rodinia hypothesis assumes that rifting did not start everywhere simultaneously. Extensive lava flows and volcanic eruptions of Neoproterozoic age are found on most continents, evidence for large scale rifting about 750 million years ago.As early as 850 and 800 million years ago,[18] a rift developed between the continental masses of present-day Australia, eastern Antarctica, India and the Congo and Kalahari cratons on one side and later Laurentia, Baltica, Amazonia and the West African and Rio de la Plata cratons on the other. This rift developed into the Adamastor Ocean during the Ediacaran…”

Rodinia

 

Fragments of an ancient continent are buried beneath the floor of the Indian Ocean, a study suggests. Researchers have found evidence for a landmass that would have existed between 2,000 and 85 million years ago. The strip of land, which scientists have called Mauritia, eventually fragmented and vanished beneath the waves as the modern world started to take shape. Evidence constituted of zircon found on Mauritius beaches; the zircon pieces are considerably older than the basalt that constitutes the oldest formations on the island at 8.9 million years.

Until about 750 million years ago, the Earth’s landmass was gathered into a vast single continent called Rodinia. And although they are now separated by thousands of kilometres of ocean, India was once located next to Madagascar. Now researchers believe they have found evidence of a sliver of continent – known as a microcontinent – that was once tucked between the two.

The team came to this conclusion after studying grains of sand from the beaches of Mauritius. While the grains dated back to a volcanic eruption that happened about nine million years ago, they contained minerals that were much older. Professor Trond Torsvik, from the University of Oslo, Norway, said: “We found zircons that we extracted from the beach sands, and these are something you typically find in a continental crust. They are very old in age.” The zircon dated to between 1,970 and 600 million years ago, and the team concluded that they were remnants of ancient land that had been dragged up to the surface of the island during a volcanic eruption. It would have spanned millions years of history, from the Precambrian Era when land was barren and devoid of life to the age when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.

But about 85m years ago, as India started to drift away from Madagascar towards its current location, the microcontinent would have broken up, eventually disappearing beneath the waves. However, a small part could have survived. “At the moment the Seychelles is a piece of granite, or continental crust, which is sitting practically in the middle of the Indian Ocean,” explained Prof Torsvik. “But once upon a time, it was sitting north of Madagascar. And what we are saying is that maybe this was much bigger, and there are many of these continental fragments that are spread around in the ocean.” Further research is needed to fully investigate what remains of this lost region.

Manu Meditated Malayamarutha Near Madagascar?


I have, through my articles, been able to reconstruct, albeit in a limited way,Indian ancient History which has been obliterated.

Many misconceived notions have been cleared, like the Aryan Invasion theory, Tamil is antagonistic to Sanatana Dharam, Sanatana Dharma is about 5000 years  old,Ramayana and Mahabharata were just stories and legends,Indians were barbarians with no scientific temper,India was insulated from the world,Ancient civilizations rose in Egypt,Babylon…….

This I have been able to unearth with the help of information available in web from sources whose ancestors, have spread misinformation.

Namely, Astrodating, Etymology, Geology, Carbon dating of events,,cultural similarities, infrared dating of Fossils.

I had recently written an article on Lord Rama’s war with the Atlantis people .

While researching for the material to support my view, I had come across information about the Malaya Mountain, Malayamarutha.

Malayamarutha is often mentioned in the Ramayana and repeatedly in Tamil Literature.

Tamil is so obsessive with Malaya Mountain, even the Gentle breeze is named after it, Malaya Marutham.

This wind is recorded to have emanated from the south.

This breeze is soft, gentle and invigorating.

There is a Raaga, Muscial Note, by the name Malayamarutha.

It is one of the Janyaragas in Carnatic Music, which is highly mathematical.

Janya Ragas are Carnatic music ragas derived from the fundamental set of 72 ragas called Melakarta ragas, by the permutation and combination of the various ascending and descending notes. The process of deriving janya ragas from the parent melakartas is complex and leads to an open mathematical possibility of around thirty thousand ragas. Although limited by the necessity of the existence of individual swaroopas (unique identities) for the janya ragas, a list is never comprehensive or exhaustive.’

Why this obsession with a Mountain?

I recalled an article I had written on Satyavrata Manu, ancestor of Lord Rama, having lived in the South and migrated to Ayodhya, because of a Great Flood and whose son Ikshvaku founded the Ikshvaku Dynasty.

And this Satyavrata Manu is associated with the Great Flood and he is reported to have meditated in a Mountain.

‘The Sanskrit-language Bhagavata Purana (dated 500 BCE-1000 CE) describes its protagonist Manu (aka Satyavrata) as the Lord of Dravida (South India). TheMatsya Purana (dated 250–500 CE) also begins with Manu practicing tapas on Mount Malaya of South India. Manimeghalai (dated around 6th century CE) mentions that the ancient Chola port city of Kavirippumpattinam (present-day Puhar) was destroyed by a flood. It states that this flood was sent by the Hindu deity Indra, because the king forgot to celebrate a festival dedicated to him’

 

Shraddhadeva was the king of the Dravida Kingdom during the epoch of the Matsya Purana. According to the Matsya Purana, Matsya, the avatar of Vishnu, first appeared as a shaphari (a small carp) to Shraddhadeva while he washed his hands in a river flowing down theMalaya Mountains.

The little fish asked the king to save him, and out of compassion, he put it in a water jar. It kept growing bigger and bigger, until the king first put it in a bigger pitcher, and then deposited it in a well. When the well also proved insufficient for the ever-growing fish, the King placed it in a tank (reservoir), that was two yojanas (16 miles) in height above the surface and on land, as much in length, and a yojana (8 miles) in breadth.[5][6] As it grew further, the king had to put the fish in a river, and when even the river proved insufficient, he placed it in the ocean, after which it nearly filled the vast expanse of the great ocean.

It was then that Vishnu, revealing himself, informed the king of an all-destructive deluge which would be coming very soon.The king built a huge boat which housed his family, saptarishi, nine types of seeds, and animals to repopulate the earth, after the deluge would end and the oceans and seas would recede. At the time of deluge, Vishnu appeared as a horned fish and Shesha appeared as a rope, with which the king fastened the boat to horn of the fish.

The boat was perched after the deluge on the top of the Malaya Mountains. After the deluge, Manu’s family and the seven sages repopulated the earth.’

According to historians, Kuadam was very close to Tiruchendur. Abraham Pandithar says that Greeks in those days named it as Periplus port’ ( Wiki)

The Tami land extended from Kapadapuram to Then Madurai.( South Madurai, which is differnet from the Madurai now in Tamil Nadu , where Meenakshi Amman Temple is.

The distance is about 7460Kms and the western side the land stretched to Africa!( 700 Katham)

In this area there were 49 Tamil Kingdoms, called Ezheezh Nadukal( 7*7 countries)…

Note the Kumari Mountain , indicated by an arrow in the First Image, and it starts from what is the presently known as the Western Ghats and extends to Madagascar, where the Mascarene plateau lay in ancient times.

Since Satyavrata Manu was meditating on t a higher plane because of the great flood, the Mascarene plateau   fits.

As He is reported to have meditated in Malayamarutha, I am of the opinion that the Malayamarutha lay somewhere in  Mascarene plateau..

The Mascarene Plateau is a submarine plateau in the Indian Ocean, north and east of Madagascar. The plateau extends approximately 2,000 km (1,200 mi), from the Seychelles in the north to Réunion in the south. The plateau covers an area of over 115,000 km2 (44,000 sq mi) of shallow water, with depths ranging from 8–150 m (30–490 ft), plunging to 4,000 m (13,000 ft) to the abyssal plain at its edges. It is the largest undersea plateau in the Indian Ocean…

Mascarene Plateau with Mountains.jpg Mascare Plateau marked by a Circle and two other ellipical circles are Kumari Malai(Mountain and 90Degree Mountain).Image credit.Jayasreesaranathans Blog

The northern part of the Mascarene plateau includes the Seychelles and Agaléga Islands. The southern part of the Mascarene plateau includes the Mascarene Islands, Saya de Malha Bank, Nazareth Bank, Soudan Banks, and Hawkins Bank. The Mascarene Islands are the mountainous islands of Mauritius, Réunion, Rodrigues, and the Cargados Carajos Shoals..

The Indian subcontinent was at one time next to the east coast of the Seychelles, but seafloor spreading has moved the landmass to its current position, where it has collided and fused with the continent of Asia.

The northern part of the Mascarene plateau is formed of granite, and is a fragment of the ancient supercontinent of Gondwana. The granite is topped with deposits of limestoneand basalt. The basalt deposits in the Seychelles are from the Deccan Traps eruption, which occurred in the central part of the Indian subcontinent 66 million years ago, at the end of the Cretaceous period.

And this lies close to what was Thenmadurai.

Location of Thenmadurai.bmp Location of Thenmadurai.Image credit,Jayasreesaranathans blog

As the Malayamarutahm is recorded to have come from the south of Thenmadurai(South Madurai which is different from the Madurai in Tamil Nadu now), Satyavrata Manu , this could have been the Mountain range where Satyavrata Manu meditated .

Rama Atlantis War Kavatam Periplus Port Window Of Lemuria


I have recently published an article Rama Atlantis War, where I had mentioned that Seth of Osiris lineage fought with Rama and Rama defeated him, thereby establishing the Rama Empire in Sumeria.

Osiris’s son Horus entered into a treaty with Lord Rama to fight against Seth who usurped the Kingdom in Sumeria and Osiris also wanted to check the power of the Lemurians.

Now Lemuria is called as Kumari Kandam in Tamil Literature and Tamil Literature abounds in Lemuria references.

Please read my posts on this.

If Horus and Rama had entered into a pact to defeat Seth and Lemurians, who were Lemurians and in what state had they had been?

I remembered the description in Tamil of the Kumarikandam especially in the Sangam Literature and their assertion about the city of Kapadapuram, also called as Kavatam.

‘According to historians, Kuadam was very close to Tiruchendur. Abraham Pandithar says that Greeks in those days named it as Periplus port’ ( Wiki)

The Tami land extended from Kapadapuram to Then Madurai.

The distance is about 7460Kms and the western side the land stretched to Africa!( 700 Katham)

In this area there were 49 Tamil Kingdoms, called Ezheezh Nadukal( 7*7 countries).

 

Adiyarkunallar mentions that the lost land extended from Pahruli river in the north to the Kumari river in the South. It was located to the south of Kanyakumari, and covered an area of 700 kavatam (a unit of unknown measurement). It was divided into 49 territories (natu), classified in the following seven categories:

  • Elu teñku natu (“Seven coconut lands”)
  • Elu Maturai natu (“Seven mango lands”)
  • Elu munpalai natu (“Seven front sandy lands”)
  • Elu pinpalai natu (“Seven back sandy lands”)
  • Elu kunra natu (“Seven hilly lands”)
  • Elu kunakarai natu (“Seven coastal lands”)
  • Elu kurumpanai natu (“Seven dwarf-palm lands”)(wiki)

Many Tamil Hindu shrines have legendary accounts of surviving the floods mentioned in Hindu mythology. These include the prominent temples of Kanyakumari, Kanchipuram, Kumbakonam, Madurai, Sirkazhi and Tiruvottiyur.[8]:57–69 There are also legends of temples submerged under the sea, such as the Seven Pagodas of Mahabalipuram. The Puranas place the beginning of the most popular Hindu flood myth – the legend of Manu – in South India. The Sanskrit-language Bhagavata Purana (dated 500 BCE-1000 CE) describes its protagonist Manu (aka Satyavrata) as the Lord of Dravida (South India). TheMatsya Purana (dated 250–500 CE) also begins with Manu practicing tapas on Mount Malaya of South India.[8]:57 Manimeghalai (dated around 6th century CE) mentions that the ancient Chola port city of Kavirippumpattinam (present-day Puhar) was destroyed by a flood. It states that this flood was sent by the Hindu deity Indra, because the king forgot to celebrate a festival dedicated to him.

There are refernces in Atlantis legends that the earth had an inner core populated with people.

“The first is Mother Earth’s inner crust, which is a continuation of the external surface crust. The two Polar Regions each have a large entrance or hole, somewhat like a cored apple, and the crust wraps itself down and around the mantle into the hollow interior. The outer and inner crusts have very similar topography: Both comprise oceans, continents, mountain ranges, lakes, and rivers. It is merely that the inner crust faces the Earth’s core. This core glows and is surrounded by a cloudy veil. The light given off is more diffuse that the light of the Sun, so the daylight in inner Earth is softer and gentler than on the Earth’s external surface. The second main feature of inner Earth is the so-called cavern worlds. These are immense hollows within the mantle, some of which are natural features created by Mother Earth, while others were made using the advanced technology of inner Earth’s major society, the land of Aghartha. This land is the last living remnant of Earth’s second Galactic Federation colony, Lemuria.

Lemuria, in her original form, was a surface society with a subterranean component. The primary capital city was situated on the large island that sank beneath the waves of the Pacific some 25,000 years ago. A secondary capital city was located in inner Earth. It was to this city that the government of Lemuria moved after the cataclysm. The new ruler of the surface, the Empire of Atlantis, ordered the major tunnel entrances to be sealed. It was only during the final days of Atlantis that the Lemurians broke these seals and thus saved many surface dwellers from certain death. These people formed a society that subsequently returned for a time to the surface and became the Rama Empire situated in Southern Asia. Then the Great Flood of 8,000 BC ended this attempt to save humanity from the dark ways of the Anunnaki. Despite this setback, Lemuria persisted in her role of protecting the surface world from these havoc-wreaking rapscallions. It was her galactic emissaries that maintained membership for this solar system in the Galactic Federation.

After the Great Flood and the demise of the Rama Empire, the Lemurians regrouped and named their newly combined society Aghartha. The capital Shamballah was relocated to a cavern located far beneath the city of Lhasa in modern Tibet. Many tunnels connect Shamballah to the surface in the Himalayas. These were used by holy men who came to spread their great energy and divine wisdom to the outside world. In this area, an extraordinary place was kept for special occasions, where holy men and their chosen disciples met in order to maintain Mother Earth’s sacred energy grids. This work, together with numerous rituals performed daily throughout inner Earth, is largely responsible for keeping alive the divine energy that is Lemuria’s main legacy to the surface peoples of Mother Earth. Lemuria, and later on Aghartha, have continuously held the Light for your transformation back into fully conscious Beings of Light.”( Source. http://www.paoweb.com/sn020706.htm)

The term Kapatam means Window.

Probably the reference in the Atlantis legend means Kapadapuram when they say Lemurians emerge from the sea.

The Kapadapuram was established by  a Tamil Pandya King .

‘With this loss of the large territories of the Pandiya country and the demise the Paandiya king Kadungkon, the next successor to Paandiyan throne was the king Paandiyan Nediyoan. This king escaped the great disaster and moved more towards the north and captured many new regions including parts of Chera and Chola countries and made them into a new Pandiyan country.

He distributed the captured lands to his subjects who met the loss of their own lands but possibly escaped this great tragedy, made him get the title “Nilam Tharu Thiruvit Pandiyan” (which means: “the Pandiyan who made the kind gesture of lands”) and as “Nilam Tharu Thiruvit Nediyoan”.

The Paandiyan king Nediyon built his new capital city at Kapaadapuram (Kavaadam) closer to the sea. The Paandiyan king with a view of preventing further sea disasters had a festival in celeberation for the Sea God, and hence he was known as “Munneer Vilavu Nediyon” (Munner Vilavu = Sea (God) celeberation) and also as “Vadivalamba nintra Paandiyan”.

He also excavated a new artificial river named “Pahruli Aaru” flowing through the city of Kapaadapuram towards the sea of the Indian Ocean possibly to make the region fertile and self sufficient in water.

He also re-organised the Second Thamil Sangam at Kapaadapuram and as an initial measure requested the renowned Tamil Poet of the period the Tholkaappianaar to compose a new Tamil Grammer, as the original Tamil Grammer composed during the period of first Thamil Sangam by the great Poet Agaththiyar known as Ahaththiyam, apparently was lost in the great Land Slide in which the first capital city ‘Then Mathurai’ (South Mathurai) also known as “Naan maadak Koodal” went under sea.

(Source.  http://www.mayyam.com/talk/showthread.php?9994-A-brief-study-on-the-Pandiyas-(Paandiyar)-of-the-quot-Second-Sangam-quot-Period-of-Tamil-Nadu)

“. The new ruler of the surface, the Empire of Atlantis, ordered the major tunnel entrances to be sealed. It was only during the final days of Atlantis that the Lemurians broke these seals and thus saved many surface dwellers from certain death. These people formed a society that subsequently returned for a time to the surface and became the Rama Empire situated in Southern Asia. Then the Great Flood of 8,000 BC ended this attempt to save humanity from the dark ways of the Anunnaki.”

The Atlantis people’ sealing the Lemurians’ probably means the Mascarene plateau.

Lemuria existed south of this plateau, which was consumed by the sea about 6000 years ago.

The surfacing of Rama dynasty may indicate the fact that Satyavrata Manu ancestor of Rama had migrated to Ayodhya(whose son Ikshvaku founded the Ikshvaku Dynasty) and the subsequent emergence of Lord Rama and His Kingdom.

One may note that the Ramayana and the Puranas call the Tamil areas as Dravida, meaning South, Dasyu, meaning who do not follow all the percepts of Sanatana Dharma( though they were practicing Sanatana Dharma they were not Fire (Agni) worshipers),and Viswamitra banished his sons to the south directing them to go to the Dasyu Land.

Normally this area has been taken as stretching from the Vindhyas, but due to the emergence of the Fact about Mascarene Plataeu , the reference may be to Manscarene plateau

To sum up,

The Lemurians (Tamils) were in existence during the Ramayana Period,

Their land was extended to Then Madurai from Kapadapuram.

They were a part of the Rama Empire,

the Tamil Timeline is,

 

  1. Mathivanan, then Chief Editor of the Tamil Etymological Dictionary Project of the Government of Tamilnadu, in 1991 … the following timeline …:

    ca. 200,000 to 50,000 BC: evolution of “the Tamilian or Homo Dravida”,
    ca. 200,000 to 100,000 BC: beginnings of the Tamil language
    50,000 BC: Kumari Kandam civilisation
    20,000 BC: A lost Tamil culture of the Easter Island which had an advanced civilisation
    16,000 BC: Lemuria submerged
    6087 BC: Second Tamil Sangam established by a Pandya king
    3031 BC: A Chera prince in his wanderings in the Solomon Island saw wild sugarcane and started cultivation in Tamilnadu.
    1780 BC: The Third Tamil Sangam established by a Pandya king
    7th century BC: Tolkappiyam (the earliest extant Tamil grammer)…

The continent was destroyed by three large floods which wiped out most of the golden civilization with it:

Rama’s War With Atlantis Ramayanas Missing Chapter


As the facts mentioned in the Ramayana by Valmiki, stand the test of available resources, Astronomy dating,Carbon dating, literary evidences from both internal and external,etymology of the words , cultural practices being practiced throughout the world, I take Valimiki seriously because of description of landmarks around the world, including the Nazca Lines of Peru, Vaikanasa Theertha in Russia, now called Baikal and many more references.I have written on all these.

Now One finds the name of Lord Rama, Dasaratha and Bharatha in Sumerian Kings List.

And there are Rama remains throughout the world.

Please check my pots on these.

I have, sometime back published an article Rama’s Empire Covered the world

One nagging doubt I had.

If Rama had conquered the world and established his Kingdom, whom did he defeat to gain these areas?

And how come Rama’s name is found in the Sumerian Kings list.

There was another powerful group of Kings in India, south of the Vindhyas.

Rama' Empire.jpg

Rama’ Empire.

They were treated as Dasyus since the Vedic period, rebels who though following Sanatana Dharma, were not strict follower of all Vedic thought.

Yet cordiality existed between the Tamils and the Sanatana Dharma people of the North.

Yet Rama does not seem to have sought the help of these powerful Kings in his fight against Ravana.

As a matter of record Ravana concluded a peace treaty with a Pandya King(read my post here )

Why did Rama choose the Vanaras,despite the fact that the Tamil Kings had cordial relationship with Ikshvaku Dynasty and these Kings were present in the Swayamvara and marriage of Rama with Sita?

In fact, Rama’s ancestor Satyavrata Manu, father of Ikshvaku, the founder of Ikshvaku dynasty was from the south and migrated to North before the great flood.(read my post here)

There seems to have been some issues between Rama Empire and the Tamils in between the time, the Tamil kings attending the Swayamvara and the defeat of Ravana.

Contrary to misinformation Rama though hailed from Ayodhya was originally from South and a part of Lemuria.

Why , then Rama, should be alienated from the Lemurians, other than Ravana?

Ravana as not in good terms with the Tamil kings as he repeatedly attacked Pandya Kingdom at Madurai and was defeated..

He sued for peace and entered into a treaty with the Pandya king.

So, considering the later empire of Rama throughout the world, could there be some global reasons to this ?

The answer to this has to found in the empire of Rama and the kings he had defeated to establish His empire.

I searched.

As Rama’s name has been found in the Sumerian King List, I checked Mesopotamia and Sumeria back ground.

We find Sanatana Dharma remains in these areas,not restricted to Rama alone.

There were three civilizations since 30,000 years ago.

30,000 BC

First Illuminatus, Gruad, rules in Atlantis.

15,000 BC

Tiahuanaco, the height of the Lemurian remnant, begins construction.

12,000 BC

Indian country of Rama existed. Remains of their large cities still exist in the deserts of India and Pakistan (Mohenjodaro). Indian texts from this period tell of anti-gravity space ships called Vimanas, or Astras, and a war with the Atlanteans on the moon. Curiously, Soviet scientists have discovered what they call “age-old instruments used in navigating cosmic vehicles” in caves in Turkestan and the Gobi Desert. The “devices” are hemispherical objects of glass or porcelain, ending in a cone with a drop of mercury inside. Some ancient Indian texts describe a war with Atlantis (who flew Vailixi machines) using flying machines and atomic bombs.,,

King Atlas (King Of Atlantis) and Prince Osiris (heir to the throne) desired to create secondary domains where they could re-establish the Lemurian Empire . This intention was thwarted by the actions of Osiris’ younger brother, the Emperor Seth. As present ruler of the Libyan/Egyptian Empire (that covered all of Africa), Seth decided that with the fall of Atlantis his Empire (in league with the rebel Sons of Belial) was to be its last stronghold. He made it his goal to re-establish the Atlantean Empire with himself as its all-powerful, ‘divine right’ emperor (of the world).

‘conflicting objectives resulted in deadly warfare between Osiris and his brother Seth. Leading Osiris’s Egyptian armies was Osiris’ eldest son Horus. After Osiris’ unfortunate ‘death’, Horus succeeded his father as king of the Libyan/Egyptian Empire. Intuitively, Horus knew what would happen when they landed in Libya. He completely distrusted his uncle. Horus persistently warned his father about Seth’s stubbornness and treachery. Osiris, believing in the goodness of the human heart, initially ignored his son’s advice. Subsequently, Osiris landed in Libya and after Seth’s abdication became Emperor’

After the demise of Osiris, his son Horus entered into a pact with Rama Empire(Emperor Zata’ar’s eldest son, Prince Rama.) to defeat Seth, the usurper.

This new Indus river civilization allowed Horus to establish a temporary chain of powerful fortress cities in the Sinai. Thus, Horus was able to attack Seth’s forces and later kill Seth in a mighty battle.

And when forces attacked Rama at Rishi Valley , they were defeated by Rama.

Thus for service rendered Rama go the territories in Sumeria.

Valmiki  concludes the Ramayana with the coronation of Rama and nothing more is heard of him later from Indian sources (at least to my knowledge) except extolling Rama’s virtues and reading Ramayana

Knowing Valmiki for his graphic details and narration of facts, in my opinion, he would not left this information.

As there are many versions of Ramayana, we might have lost a chapter detailing  Rama’s empire.

This could have been before Rama’s departure from this world

And there followed the first( or second) Great flood after Rama’s period, as recorded in world literature.

I shall be writing on the Rama Atlantis War in detail.

Devi Mahatmiyam Durga Sapthasati Parayana Procedure


The three forms of the female principles embodied in Durga, Lakshmi and Sarasvati are the expressions of Valour,Wealth and Knowledge needed for the Humans.

All the three have to stay together if one were to lead a successful Life.

Hindu festivals represent these principles and they remind one of these Life’s Truths.

Durga represents Valor, Lakshmi wealth and Sarasvati Knowledge.

The Nine days’ festival, Navaratri represents this.

I have written articles on the procedure Mantras and dates assigned to each Goddess.

There is a sacred text, called Devi Mahatmiyam in Markandeya Purana which delivers the results  equivalent  to accruing by reciting all the mantras of the three Devis.

Durga, Lakshmi, Sarasvathi.jpg

Durga, Lakshmi, Sarasvathi.

The Devi (mother Goddess) killed Madhu and Kaidabha as Vishnu Maya (Thamasic-base), killed Mahishasura as Lakshmi (Rajashic form-materialistic) and killed Shumbha and Nishumbha in the form of Goddess Saraswathi (Sathvic-spiritual).

All the three are combined in this Stotra.

It consists of Chapters 74 to 86 (13 chapters) of the Markandeya Purana and has 700 stanzas.

This is known as Devi Mahatmya in South India, Chandi in West Bengal and as Durga Sapthasathi in the northern parts of the country including Varanasi.

How to do Devi Mahatmiya Parayan

There are two methods.

Trayangam is a method in which we need to chant three prayers – Devi Kavacham, Argala Stotram and Devi Keelakam followed by Navakshari Mantram.

Navangam is a method for which nine prayers are recited prior of starting reading the book. Navangam stotrams are: Devi Nyasa, Devi Avahana, Devi Namani, Argala Stotram, Keelaka Stotram, Devi Hrudaya, Dhala, Devi Dhyana and Devi Kavacha.

As per the prescribed methods in ancient scriptures, Devi Mahatmya should be read in one sitting. After finishing the recital of Devi Mahatmya, one should chant the Devi Suktam (slokas 7 to 36 of Chapter 8).

Devi Saptashati Parayana in 3 days & 7 days

Apart from one sitting recital, devotees read Devi mahatmya for three consecutive days: Prathama Charitra or 1st Chapter on first day, Madhyama Charitra (2, 3, 4 chapters) on 2nd day, and Uttama Charitra (5-13 chapters) on third day.

Some devotees also read Devi Mahatmya in 7 days. They chant 1st Chapter on first day, 2-3 chapters on 2nd day, 4th chapter on 3rd day, 5-8 chapters on 4th day, 9-10 chapters on 5th day, 11thchapter on 6th day and 12-13 chapters on 7th day.

Each chapter should be read in single sitting. Due to any reason, Parayana is stopped in between a chapter; the whole chapter should be read again.

The order of reciting Durga Saptashati Parayana daily is: Trayanga Mantra, Devi Mahatmya text followed by Devi Suktam.

Many devotees read Durga Saptashati during Navratri Durga Puja 9/10 days.. Here is the procedure to read Devi Mahatmyam during Navratri

How to read Durga Saptashati (Devi Mahatmyam) during Navratri festival

1st day: Chapter 1 (Madhu kaitabha samhaaram)

2nd day: Chapter 2, 3 and 4 (Mahishhasura samhaara)

3rd day: Chapter 5 and 6 (Dhuumralochana vadha)

4th day: Chapter 7 (Chanda Munda vadha)

5th day: Chapter 8 (Rakta biija samhaara)

6th day: Chapter 9 and 10 (Shumbha Nishumbha vadha)

7th day: Chapter 11 (Praise of Narayani)

8th day: Chapter 12 (Phalastuti – reciting merits or benefits)

9th day: Chapter 13 (Blessings to Suratha and the Merchant)

10th day: Chapter 14 (Aparadha Kshamaprarthana) on 10th day

You can also complete the recital on 9th day by chanting Devi Aparadha Kshama Prarthana Stotram on 9th day itself.

You should read Siddha Kunjika Stotram after completing the recital of every chapter.

Siddhakunjika Stotra.

*

This manthra is of very great power and should not be chanted unless, it is taught by a Guru.

The other is Navangam, where nine prayers are recited before starting reading of the book. They are chanting of 1. Nyasa, 2. Avahana, 3. Namani, 4. Argala, 5. Keelaga, 6. Hrudhaya, 7. Dhala, 8. Dhyana and 9. Kavacha.

It is recommended that the entire Devi Mahatmya should be read in one sitting. After completion of the reading it is necessary to chant the Devi Suktham consisting of the slokas seven to 36 of chapter 8, is to be chanted. If the Guru has taught the navakshari manthra, then it should also be meditated up on.

Homer’s Odyssey Is Valimiki Ramayana?


In my search o find Sanatana Dharma presence throughout the world,I often stumble upon interesting information by scholars of various countries.

They come from a background which may not have exposed them to our Ithihasas, Puranas and Vedas.

In such cases these scholars present their facts as their culture and literature.

Lord Rama's Coronation.jp

Rama Pattabishekam

I have been able to link their information with our texts and shown that it was Sanatana Dharma which was present and later adopted y the people of the area.

In this way I have been able to unearth a lot of information and have written articles on them.

Caspian Sea is Kasyap Sagar,

Lake Baikal is Vaikanasa Theertha.

Krishna’s son Pradhyumna built a city in Russia.

River Danube is named after Dhanu, Mother of Dhanavas.

Lord Rama’s Chapel in Ur,Russia.

Russia was called Sthree Varsha.

Homer and Ramayana.jpg Homer and Ramayana.

California id kapila Aranya where Sage Kapila turned Sagara’s( ancestor of Rama)  into ashes.

And we have Mount Ash in USA.

The Pillars of Hercules was erected in honour of Krishna.

Krishna, along with Balarama was worshiped in ancient Greece.

And many more articles.

Please check under Hinduism category.

Or Google the country’s name and ramanan50.

Now I have come across information that Homer Plagiarised and produced his Odyssey from Valmiki Ramayana.!

In the adaptation of Homer, Rama is Ulysses – a married king who abandons his wife Penelope, first throughout the campaign of Troy, and then for many years of wandering, from bed to bed, from heart to heart and from bad to worse. The Greek people have a good laugh, the sages blanched. For those who had kept the memory of the great Ram, ridiculing its fascinating and terrible saga was a crime, at least a serious lack of taste. The memory of the great Ram was already fading among the Greek.

“On 16th April, 1178 BC, a solar eclipse occurred and is believed to have marked the return of Odysseus, legendary King of Ithaca, to his kingdom after the Trojan War. He discovered a number of suitors competing to marry his wife Penelope, whom they believed to be a widow, in order to succeed him. He organized their slaying and re-established himself on the throne. The date is surmised from a passage in Homer’s Odyssey, which reads, “The Sun has been obliterated from the sky, and an unlucky darkness invades the world.” This happens in the context of a new moon and at noon, both necessary preconditions for a full solar eclipse. Further clues from the text included reference to Venus being visible and high in the sky six days before, and the constellations Pleiades and Boötes both being visible at sunset 29 days before.”

This odd text contradicts itself from the second line. How could this eclipse marked the return of Ulysses, called “legendary king of Ithaca”? If Ulysses is legendary, why look for vain traces of his existence? Ulysse has replaced Rama, and this eclipse marked the sudden return of Ram after his wars of conquest in Asia. Rama found his Western Kingdom in the hands of unworthy suitors. He resumed his throne, restores ramaic order, and returns to manage the other kingdoms that comprise his global empire, ie Egypt and Middle East, India and China, Central and South America”

Please read my Post Ramas Empire covered the world.

Ramayana Odyssey Similarities.

In the course of a conspiracy hatched by jealous queen ‘Kaikei’, Prince Rama of the kingdom of Ayodhya is expelled. The queen’s initial plan is to bring her own son Bharatha to kingship. Prince Rama leaves the palace with his beloved wife Sita and Prince Lakshmana and lives in the jungle. Valmiki illustrates Rama’s exploits and heroism in the jungle and how Rama battles with ‘Rakshas’ (the jungle dwellers).

Ultimately Ravana, the chief of the jungle dwellers tactfully removes Rama from his jungle home and abducts Sita to Sri Lanka. Rama, accompanied by Hanuman the general of apes and Lakshmana, pursue Ravana in his flight to Lanka. Hanuman builds a type of massive bridge across the sea with boulders and Ravana is killed in the fierce battle that ensures. After testing Sita’s chastity by fire, Rama takes Sita back to Ayodhya and coronation of Rama in the kingdom takes place amidst festivities.

We see that legends of Ramayana have been woven around true events at the time when Indo-Europeans were crossing the valleys of river Ganges. Ramayana describes a period of time which was extremely similar to the period which Homer of Greece described. On the other hand, Homer composed his epic ‘Odyssey’ to illustrate the life and heroic battles by Odysseus, the hero, who ultimately wins his beloved Penelope, identically enough, Ramayana eulogises Rama’s feats in his attempt to save Sita in captivity.

Odyssey

In Odyssey, Homer represents battles, heroic deeds and events which bear clear resemblance to those illustrated by Valmiki in Ramayana. A hero named Odysseus who comes for the battle of Troy from the country of Ithaca, is imprisoned by a marine mermaid in an island on his return journey. All Greeks believe that Odysseus must have died on his return from the battle.

But his beloved girl Penelope earnestly believes that he is alive and totally unaware of his imprisonment, waits for him for years.

Gods are in favour of this imprisonment because the hero Odysseus blinded the chief of the one-eyed giants in their island. Later, the Gods entreat Calypsio the marine mermaid to release Odysseus and he returns to his country after numerous hardships and adventures.

His beloved Penelope is being troubled by suitors (Princes) in Odysseus absence but she stays vehement in her rejection. Ultimately the hero (Odysseus) kills the Princes and recovers the kingdom. (Here Penelope has been constantly supported by Telemachus her son).

In Odyssey, the hero is supported by his son, Coronos and gods just as Rama is strengthened by Hanuman and Lakshmana in Ramayana. Like Penelope in Homer’s work, Sita, perfect in chastity, expects Rama always beside her and regards him as her sole protector and lover. When Rama is expelled into the jungle, she passionately exclaims.

A married woman is always by her husband’s side and regards him more important than house work… As any objects is accompanied by its shadow, so is the woman to her beloved husband… So please allow me to find him in the agreeable jungle and enjoy his warmth and love which are far more dignified than luxuries in this palace…”

Nine Landmass Ancient India Map Two Parts of Sanatana Dharma


The Puranas , Ramayana ,Mahabharata and other ancient literature of india describe land mass of those ancient Vedic times.

The number varies, 5/7/9 in some Puranas.

Earth as described in the Hindu Purana.jpg Earth as described in the Hindu Purana.

Essentially there were five and the others being the part of this and had been given the name based on geography ,produce and the nature of the people inhabiting the world.

1.Jambu Dweepa, surrounded by Salt Sea.(lavana)

2.Palaksha Dwipa, Surrounded by Sugar Cane Juice.(Ikshu)

3.Salmali Dwipa, surrounded by a Sea of Wine(Sura)

4.Kusa Dwipa, surrounded by a sea of Clarified Butter,Ghee(Sarpi)

5Krauncha Dwipa , surrounded by a sea of Curds(Durghda)

6.Pushkara is surrounded by a Sea of Fresh Water.

‘ North Pole was at the exact center of Ilavrita Varsha. To the west of Ilavrita varsha was said to be Ketumula Varsha most of which is today under Atlantic Ocean. To the east of Ilvarita Varsha was Bhadrasva Varsha which is today under Pacific Ocean. On one side of the Ilavrita Varsha were Hari Varsha, Kimpurusha Varsha and Bharatha Varsha. On the other side of the Ilavrita Varsha were Ramyaka, Hiranyaka and Kuru Varsha. Kuru Varsha was hence on the opposite side of Bharatha Varsha on the globe.
It can be observed that in those times, most of South American continent, southern half of African Continent and entire Australia were submerged under water.[No, it is naiive to assume the areas designated were entirely above or below sea level. The Ancients referred to the lands below the equator as the “Underworld” and North of the Equator as “The Upper World”-DD] On the other hand most of modern day Atlantic ocean and Pacific ocean, and the entire Arctic ocean were above sea level. [The map in circular plan is one of the same series as the Ancient Sea Kings maps referenced to Babylon, I feel certain. The maps of this series are mostly postglacial and include a strait between Alaska and Siberia, and they do include a very extensive and exacting survey of China as noted by Charles Hapgood..-DD]’

I have observed that there seems to have been two distinct areas where Sanatana Dharma was in place.

One part seems to have been from the Arctic to Pacific  Ocean.

Another extending from India towards the west of India, extending through the other areas, though real demarcation is not correct.

It is akin to compartmentalising Mind as conscious , sub conscious and conscious

They form an integral part.

We compartmentalize for our convenience to understand them better.

A part of Sanatana dharma was in place from the Arctic to the Pacific ocean running through Russia, Central India to Pacific.

This consisted of South India, south asian Countries and extended to Pacific.

Another part extended from the South of India towards the west of India running through Midddle east, Europe,Africa , Americas and culminating at the Arctic.

There are some interesting differences between the two areas and I shall write on this later in detail

I have taken references from Russian Legends, folklore ,history and the history of South India, as described in ancient Tamil literature and references in the Puranas ,Ramayana and Mahabharata.

‘In the Ancient Times India was called Bharathavarsha and it extended in the west including modern Egypt, Afghanistan, Baluchistan, Iran, Sumeria upto Caspian Sea (which was called Kashyapa Samudra in those days). Bhratahvarsha was the Greater India while Bharatha Khanda referred to the Indian Subcontinent which lies at the heart of the Vedic Civilization and extended from Himalayas in the north to KanyaKumari in the South. So the aryan invasion theory of a migration of Aryans from Central Asia to modern northern India is a baseless theory, for the entire ancient aryan civilizational geography spanned across the above mentioned regions. The very term “arya” in Sanskrit refers not to any race, but actually means a “noble person”.
The Puranas and Ithihasas are full of historical developments in the Bharatha Varsha. The now dried up Saraswati river mentioned numerous times in the vedas is the heart of this vedic civilization, and it is from here the vedic civilization spread across the Bharatha Varsha during the vedic period. The “Out of India” theory talks about this. The Saraswati river dried up at the end of the Mahabharatha Period due to geological events in the region. It was around this time that the earlier lush green area of the present Rajasthan had got converted into a desert as we see it today.
During the ancient times Arabian sea did not exist, and the land mass stretched continuously from modern India to Africa. The mighty Saraswati river born in the Himalayas flowed for over 4500 miles into Africa before entering the Oceans. This was the largest and longest river in those days. This is the most mentioned and praised river in the Veda’

Lakshmi Jyeshta Devi Durga In Ancient Sumeria?


I have written on the presence of Sanatana Dharma throughout the world.

Either they have been a part of Sanatana Dharma directly or having been there after being inhabited by the Tamils who have been, contrary to what the fraudulent Tamil Historians say on this, a part of Sanatana Dharma.

Sanatana Dharma had been there in Sumeria, Mesopotamia , apart from being present in other Cultures.

The Hindu Gods are present in the Sumerian and Mesopotamian Culture

Rama and Dasaratha’s names are found in the King’s List of Sumeria.

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.

Rama in Sumerian King List

If Ram-Sin is identified as Rama his greatest Amorite enemy Hammurabi must be Ravana or Ravi-anna. This presents some difficulties although Valmiki’s version of the abduction of Sita probably has more to do with poetic imagination than history. However, that she was the chief priestess of the moon-temple at Ur may have been at the root of some events of the politically turbulent era. There is a possibility that at some stage Ur was captured by Hammurabi. The chief-priestess of Ur was inviolable under Sumerian law and the fact that Ravana did not dishonour Sita may show his regard for law. The Battle between Khammu-ravi and Ram-Sin who led a group of Ten-Kings was one of the most famous events of Sumerian history.

Rama Invaded Babylon

There is also a similarity between the war of Ten Kings during the Vedic period and battle of Ten kings in Sumeria,

Now I have come across references to Goddess Durga and Lakshmi in the Sumerian Culture.

Look at the following Image of Inanna.

Inanna, Sumerian Goddess.jpg Inanna, Sumerian Goddess.

You find the Lion  as one would find in Durga Temples and Trishul as well.

Goddess Durga.jpg Goddess Durga.

Inanna, the goddess of love and war, with a lion. No other image of Inanna better illustrates her dual nature. She is depicted as a goddess of love, “showing some leg”; while the lion and the weapons of battle (maces) seen rising up behind her shows that she is also the goddess  of war. In all of ancient mythology, no other deity is the goddess of love and war combined. The eight-pointed star (Venus) is another symbol associated with Inanna. This image is in photographic reverse. See the complete seal impression. Also see a line-drawing of the seal by S. Beaulieu.

Although she is called the goddess of love, Inanna is really the goddess of lust. She is not associated with romance, marriage, fertility or child-bearing. She is so extreme in her emotions, so psychotic in her desires, and so relentless in getting what she wants, she thus symbolizes the violence of human passion. This is why she is also represents the destruction and carnage of war.’

Durga is a Goddess of Power .

As Mahalakshmi.

I have not found the legend of Lakshmi as the daughter of Moon in any other culture excepting in Hinduism.

Inanna’s Akkadian counterpart is Ishtar. In different traditions Inanna is the daughter of Anu or she is the daughter of the moon-god Sin.

And like Lakshmi, Inanna has a sister,

‘Additionally, the myth may be described as a union of Inanna with her own “dark side”, her twin sister-self, Ereshkigal, as when she ascends it is with Ereshkigal’s powers, while Inanna is in the underworld it is Ereshkigal who apparently takes on fertility powers, and the poem ends with a line in praise, not of Inanna, but of Ereshkigal. It is in many ways a praise-poem dedicated to the more negative aspects of Inanna’s domain, symbolic of an acceptance of the necessity of death to the continuance of life.

Lakshmi’s Elder sister is Jyesta Devi, personification of things inauspicious.

Devadasi system in Sumeria.

The Devadasi system, I have been thinking, was unique to India.

But,

‘Along the Tigris and Euphrates rivers were many shrines and temples dedicated to Inanna. The House of Heaven (Sumerian: e2-anna; Cuneiform: 𒂍𒀭 E2.AN) temple[6] in Uruk[7] was the greatest of these, where sacred prostitution was a common practice. In addition, according to Leick 1994 persons of asexual or hermaphroditic bodies and feminine men were particularly involved in the worship and ritual practices of Inanna’s temples (see gala)’

And Iraq, has Sanatna Dharma connection!

Vedas As ‘Perun’s Vedas Santees’ In Russia


I have written  a series of articles on the Sanatana Dharma and Vedic connection.

“Santii Vedas of Perun

That,

The Rig Veda was composed in the Arctic.

Krishn’a son Pradhyumna built a city in Por Baijn, Sibria,

River Volga was the cradle of Vedic civilization

Russia was called Rishi Varsha and also as Sthree Varsha, a country ruled by women,

It belonged to Ila Varsha od Indian Puranas,

Lake Baikal was Vaikanasa Theertha,

Indra’s Amravathi was Arkaim,

Swasthik Rig Vedic Mandala city was  built in Russia.

Siberians invoke Ayur Devathas.

Narada Mountain in Urals,Narodnaya

A reader posed an interesting question.

‘Are there oral traditions of the Vedas, Puranas and Ithihasa in other countries as Sanatana Dharma was present throughout the world”

I replied that I have written that there is a Catur Veda in Bali and I shall be exploring the subject.

Considering the finds in Russia relating to Sanatana Dharma I have searched Russian literature and pre-Christian texts of Russia.

And I struck gold!

There is a Veda in Russia and it is called,Perun’s Vedas Santees ‘

Perun’s Vedas Santees’’ are meant only as Vedas in narrow sense (Books of Knowledge or Perun’s Wisdom Books), consisting of nine books, dictated by our first ancestor, the God Perun, to our far ancestors while their third arrival to the Earth on the spaceship Waitman, in 38 004 B.C. (or 40 009 years ago). Only the first book of these Vedas was translated into Russian nowadays.

As a whole Vedas contain a profound knowledge about nature and reflect Humanity history in the Earth during last several hundred thousand years, – at least, not less than 600 000 years. They also contain Perun’s prediction of the future events for 40 176 years ahead, i.e. until nowadays and 167 years ahead.

Vedas in its basis, on which they were written originally down, are divided into three basic groups:

– satees are the plates of gold or other precious metal, without affect with corrosion on which texts were put by stamping signs and filling them with paint. Then these plates were fastened by three rings like books or made out in the oak framework and framed by a red cloth;

– charatiys are the sheets or rolls of high-quality parchment with texts;

– volchvaries are wooden plates with the texts written or cut out.

Santees are the most ancient of known documents. Originally „Perun’s Vedas Santees’’ were called as Vedas, but there are mentions of others Vedas in them, which even at that time, i.e. more 40.000 years ago, named Ancient and which either are lost, or stored in secluded places and not disclosed for any reasons currently. Santees reflect the most secret Ancient Knowledge. It is possible even to tell that they are archive of knowledge. By the way, Indian Vedas is only a part of  Slav-Aryan Vedas, transferred by arias about 5.000 years ago to India.

As a rule charatiys were santees copies, or, probably, writing out of santees, intended for wider use in the priestly habitat. The most ancient charatiys are „Charatiys of Light’’ (the Book of Wisdom) which were written down 28 736 years ago (or, to be exact, from 20 August till 20 September, 26 731 B.C.). As it is easier to write down charatiys than to make santees engraving on gold, so extensive historical data were written down in such a kind.

So, for example, charatiys under the name „Avesta’’ were written down on 12 000 bull’s skins 7.513 years ago along with the war history of  Slav-Aryan peoples with Chinese. The peace conclusion between fighting parties was called as the World Creation in the Star Temple (W.C.S.T.). And a year according to our ancient calendar in which this peace concluded was called as the Star Temple.

It was the first world war in the Earth’s history, and this event was so tremendous, and the victory was so significant for White Race that served as a reference point for new chronology introduction. Since then all white peoples counted summers from the World Creation. And this chronology was cancelled only by Peter Romanov I in 1 700 who imposed the Byzantine calendar to us as only the Romanovs come to power with the help of the Byzantine Empire. And „Avesta’’ itself was destroyed by Alexander the Great on an instigation of the Egyptian priests so the World Creation in the Star Temple didn’t throw the light onto „the world creation’’, described under their dictation in the Bible.”

The history of Russia is reversed here in the above quote.

The return of the Sanataa Dharma people from the Arctic after composing the Rig Veda is erroneously taken as the invasion of Aryans of India and as a result the history of India has ben distorted.

Read my posts on this.

Similarities between the Vedas and  Perun’s Veda Santees.

1, Both have ben transmitted orally.

2.Three groups have been mentioned in Perun Vedas corresponding to the three Varnas, Brahmana, Kshatrya and Vaishya.

3.One group has been entrusted with the custody of the Perun Vedas like the Brahmanas of the Sanatana Dharma.

4.

In antiquity Slavic-Aryan people had four main types of writing – one for each major family of the White Race. The oldest of the survived documents, ie, Santii, were written by ancient h’Aryan Runes. Ancient Runes are not letters or characters in the modern sense but secret images that convey a huge amount of ancient knowledge. They include dozens of characters, written under a common line, called “the heaven”, and include numbers and letters as well as certain objects or phenomena – frequently used or very important.

In ancient times h’Aryan runes served as the main base for the creation of simplified forms of writing: ancient Sanskrit, Lines and Strokes, Devanagari, German-Scandinavian Norse runes and many others. It, together with other writings of the Slavic-Aryan Families also became the foundation of all modern alphabets, starting with the ancient Slavic and ending with both Cyrillic and Latin. So it was not Cyril and Methodius who invented Russian grammar – they only created one of it’s convenient options which was dictated by the need to spread Christianity in Slavic languages.

It should also be added that the Slavic-Aryan Vedas are being kept by Priests-keepers, or Kapen-Yngliings, (keepers of ancient wisdom) at Slavic-Aryan “Kapishi” (temles) of Old Russian Orthodox Old Believers Church of Ynglija. The exact storage location is not known as our Ancient Wisdom was tried to be destroyed during the last thousand of years by certain forces. Now the domination of these forces is coming to an end, and the keepers of the Vedas began to translate them into Russian and publish. To date, partially translated is only one of nine books of the Santii Vedas f Perun. But it is in the narrow sense. And in the broader sense parts of the Vedas are kept in different places all among the white peoples – the descendants of the Slavic-Aryans.

Incidentally, it should also be noted that Ingliya (hence the name of the Church of Old Believers) – is a stream of energy in all its forms, which comes from a single, incomprehensible God-creator Ra-M-Ha. This flow starts at the center of concentrated matter during formation of galaxies and is associated with creation of stars. In addition to Ra-M-Ha our ancestors honored their galactic pre-ancestors and curators, who they also considered gods. Ancient Slavic people created certain images that allowed them to focus their attention and will so that people together could control the forces of nature, for example, call for rain (people – like little gods, so they needed to unite their will and mental energy for great deeds). These images were also called gods. Thus, our ancestors had three kinds of gods the main of whom they called Ra-M-Ha.

I shall be writing more on this subject after a careful study

Assam Kings Ruled From 20000 BC Hiuen Tsiang


One of the curious traits of Indians is to trust the foreigners and their records about indian History than what is found in their backyard,Ithihasa and Purana.

But the would accept anything from a foreign source as the Gospel!

Hieun Tsiang..jpg Hieun Tsiang.The Chinese Traveler who visited India.

Whether it is Trevelyan History, Herodotus,Pliny, or dating of Indian texts by the self-proclaimed Missionary like Max Mueller!

Indian texts are brushed aside as Myths.

Now let me quote Huein Tsiang, a Chinese traveler who visited India around 643 AD.

Any problem in accepting this?

He states that 1000 generations of Kings (before Huein Tsiang) ruled Assam.

Taking the conservative estimate of 20 Years per generation , this works out to 20*1000=20,000!

That means Assam was ruled 20000 Years before Huein Tsiang.

Setting aside the 643 Years of AD when Huein Tsiang visited India, Assam had Kings from 20000 BC.

The major issue one finds in finding the Kings Lis in India is tha we had at least 56 Kingdoms, and consequently 56 lineages.

To trace them all is daunting.

I have written on the Tamil Kings and a general Kings List of India, which was mainly centered around Central India.

I shall be writing on individual Kingdoms shortly.

 

‘As we know from Vishnu Purana, Hari Vamsa and Kalika Purana, there was a king in Assam (Kamarupa) by name Narakasura at Krishna’s times. i.e. 5000 years ago. This was the belief of Assamese as well. Huein Tsiang who visited Assam (Kamarupa) in 643 CE also said that there were 1000 generations ruling Assam before his time. So we know what foreigners wrote was wrong.

….Protohistoric Assam is reconstructed from epics and literature from early times (Mahabharata, Kalika Purana, Yogini Tantra, etc.). The earliest political entity seems to have been led by a non-Aryan Danava dynasty with Mahiranga mentioned as the first king. This dynasty was removed by Narakasura. Naraka appears to be a generic name for many kings belonging to the Naraka dynasty. According to legend, the last of the Naraka kings was killed by Krishna and his son Bhagadatta took the throne. Bhagadatta is said to have participated in the Mahabharata war with an army of “chinas, kiratas and dwellers of the eastern sea”, thereby indicating that his kingdom, Pragjyotisha, included part ofBangladesh. The last in the Naraka dynasty was a ruler named Suparua.

Xuanzang (Chinese: 玄奘; Wade–Giles: Hsüan-tsang; c. 602 – 664), born Chen Hui or Chen Yi (Chen I), was a Chinese Buddhist monk, scholar, traveller, and translator who described the interaction between China and India in the early Tang dynasty. Born in what is now Henan province around 602, from boyhood he took to reading religious books, including the Chinese classics and the writings of ancient sages.

Xuanzang’s work, the Great Tang Records on the Western Regions, is the longest and most detailed account of the countries of Central and South Asia that has been bestowed upon posterity by a Chinese Buddhist pilgrim. While his main purpose was to obtain Buddhist books and to receive instruction on Buddhism while in India, he ended up doing much more. He has preserved the records of political and social aspects of the lands he visited.

His record of the places visited by him in Bengal — mainly Raktamrittika near Karnasuvarna, Pundranagara and its environs,Samatata and Tamralipti — have been very helpful in the recording of the archaeological history of Bengal. His account has also shed welcome light on the history of 7th century Bengal, especially the Gauda kingdom under Shashanka, although at times he can be quite partisan.

Xuanzang obtained and translated 657 Sanskrit Buddhist works. He received the best education on Buddhism he could find throughout India. Much of this activity is detailed in the companion volume to Xiyu Ji, the Biography of Xuanzang written by Huili, entitled the Life of Xuanzang.

His version of the Heart Sutra is the basis for all Chinese commentaries on the sutra, and recitations throughout China, Korea and Japan.[23] His style was, by Chinese standards, cumbersome and overly literal, and marked by scholarly innovations in terminology; usually, where another version by the earlier translator Kumārajīva exists, Kumārajīva’s is more popular

Muhurtha Definition Details Taittriya Brahmana


Muhurtha is a Time of the day.
Marriages are conducted in Subha Muhurha Marriages are conducted in Subha Muhurha,auspicious time.

In Hindu Almanac and Philosophy, Time, at the  Macro Level is Cyclic and it is not linear,as we understand it today.

For details on this please read my Post Time, Non Linear.

A Muhurtha is reckoned as 48 Minutes.

References are found, about the Muhurtha,in the Brahmana portion of the Vedas, the Scripture of the Hindus.

The term  muhūrta means,

“muhu” (sudden) and “ṛta” (order).

The author of Ṛg Veda III.33.5 seems aware of this, and uses it for word play. Ṛta refers to the natural, yearly order of the seasons, so that the term muhūrta refers to the daily reflection of these.

The term Rta is of special siginficance in Sanatana Dharma.

Rta isa Natural order of things and it includes the Moral Order.

The Order of Nature is called ‘Rta‘,it is difficult to translate in English as Rta indicates Order,Orderliness of Nature,Law of Nature ,The Rhythm of Nature The Truth(Empirical and Transcendental),all are indicated by the term Rta.

One of the Shanti Mantras,that is the Hymn to be used in all all auspicious occasions says

‘Brahmam Vathishyaami,ritham VathishyaamiSathyam Vathishyaami’

I Salute the Brahman, the Reality;Orderliness,’The Ultimate Truth,Truth’

It pays tribute to Nature in all it forms,Fire,Water,Earth, Air,Life,Sun,Early Morning,Night,Planets,Planets,Animals,Plants and  Time.

Fire –Agni Sukhtham

Water-Mantra Pushpam

Air –Vayu Sukhtham

Earth-Bhoo Sukhtham.

Life-Ayshya Sukthtam

Early Morning-Ushas Suktham

Night-Rik Veediya Raathri Suktham

For more read Earth Day in the Vedas An approach to Universe

References in the Rig veda.

The term appears as early as the Ṛg Veda, where, according to Monier Williams, it means “a moment”, but does not evidence any specification of an exact periodicity there as received in later works,

Pt. Vijay Shrikrishna Jakatdar points to two specific Ṛg Veda passages that employ the term, III.33.5, and III.53.8:[7]

रमध्वं मे वचसे सोम्याय रतावरीरुप मुहूर्तमेवैः | पर सिन्धुमछा बर्हती मनीषावस्युरह्वे कुशिकस्य सूनुः ||

“Linger a little at my friendly bidding rest, Holy Ones, a moment in your journey. With hymn sublime soliciting your favour Kuśika’s son hath called unto the River.” (trans. Ralph T. H. Griffith[8])
and

रूपं-रूपं मघवा बोभवीति मायाः कर्ण्वानस्तन्वं परि सवाम | तरिर्यद दिवः परि मुहूर्तमागात सवैर्मन्त्रैरन्र्तुपा रतावा ||

“Maghavan weareth every shape at pleasure, effecting magic changes in his body, Holy One, drinker out of season, coming thrice, in a moment, through fit prayers, from heaven.”

( Satapada Brahmana)

18 nimeṣas (twinklings of the eye) are 1 Kāṣṭhā, 30 Kāṣṭhās are 1 Kāla, 30 Kālas are one Muhūrta, and 30 Muhūrtas are one day and night(Manu Smriti)

Auspicious occasions are to be celebrated on Subha Muhurtha.

Abhijit Muhurtha is most auspicious.

This normally occurs around 1230 pm daily.

Please read my Post o Abhijit Muhurtham

This Temple also has 28 Nakshatras’Idols.

The 28th Nakshatra is called ‘Abhijeet’

I may mention that the Abhijt Muhurtha is normally between 12 and 1230 pm and it is not necessary to look for an auspicious time for performance of auspicious events.

Thiruvudai Maruthur Mahalingam

Check ,Calculate Muhurthas here

The Muhūrtas are traditionally calculated by assuming sunrise at 06:00 AM on the Vernal Equinox, which is the Vedic New Year. Not all of the constellations cross the zenith, so that it is not in every case clear which constellation presides over the Muhūrta. Yet it is clear that one or more prominent features of the correlate constellations, from which the later Muhūrtas draw their respective names, falls within the Celestial Longitude of the same, drawn from the Polar Axis.

Gowri Habba Hartalika Teej Festival Pooja Details


Managla Gowri Vrata is celebrated with pomp and piety in India.

This festival is clubbed with Ganesh Chaturthi and these two festivals together are called Gowri Ganesha Habba.

Gowri habba is celebrated one day ahead of Ganesha Chaturthi.

Parvathi as Gowri for Gowri habba.jpg Parvathi as Gowri for Gowri habba.

Gowri Habba 2015.

Pratahkal Gowri Puja Muhurat = 06:12 to 08:37
Duration = 2 Hours 24 Mins
Pradoshkal Gowri Puja Muhurat = 18:16 to 20:01
Duration = 1 Hour 44 Mins
Tritiya Tithi Begins = 17:27 on 15/Sep/2015
Tritiya Tithi Ends = 20:01 on 16/Sep/2015

‘It is a significant festival in parts of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. It is known as Hartalika in the North Indian states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. Ma Goddess Gowri (Gauri), the mother of Ganesha and wife of Shiva, is worshiped throughout India for her ability to bestow upon her devotees courage and power. Hindu belief has it that Goddess Gowri is the very incarnation of Aadhi Shakthi Mahamaya. She is the Shakthi of Lord Shiva. It is believed that on Thadige, or the third day of the month of Bhaadra, Goddess Gowri comes home like any married woman comes to her parents’ house. The next day Lord Ganesha, her son, comes as if to take her back to Kailasa..

However Gowri festival is observed on a Low key in Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

On this day, married women, after bathing, wear new or smart clothes and dress up the girls of the family. Then they do the ‘sthapana’ of either jalagauri or arishinadagauri (a symbolic idol of Gowri made of turmeric). Beautifully painted and decorated clay idols of Goddess Gowri can be bought at the local market. The goddess’ idol is mounted in a plate, with a cereal (rice or wheat) in it. As this ‘puje’ or ritual is to be performed with ‘suchi’ (cleanliness) and ‘shraddhe’ (dedication), the women go to temples or to another person’s house, where it is performed according to set procedures or they can perform the ritual in their own homes.

A mandapa, generally decorated with banana stem and mango leaves, is built around the idol. The Gauri is decorated with garlands, decorations made of cotton, and women have a ‘gauridaara’ (sacred thread with sixteen knots) tied to their right wrists, as blessings of gauri and as part of the vratha. Each of the sixteen knots is worshiped with mantras during the performance of the religious practice.

An interesting part of the festival is offering the baagina. At least five baaginas are prepared as part of the vratha. Each baagina usually contains a packet of arshina (turmeric),kumkum, black bangles, black beads (used in the mangalsutra), a comb, a small mirror, baLe bicchoLe, coconut, blouse piece, dhaanya (cereal), rice, toor dal, green dal, wheat or rava and jaggery cut in a cube form. The baagina is offered in a traditional mora (winnow painted with turmeric). One such baagina is offered to Goddess Gowri and set aside. The remaining Gowri baaginas are given to the married women.

Another specialty of this festival is that the ‘tavaru maneyavaru’ (the married woman’s parents and brothers) send gauri habbada mangaladravya to the married women of their family. Some send money as a substitute for mangaladravya. This good practice remains unchanged and keeps people closer. Newlymarried women give sixteen jothe baagina to sumangalis (married women) and obtain their blessings. One baagina is kept for Gauramma. The main food items in this festival’s feast are the delectable beLe hoLige/Kaayee-hoLige, Huggi/chitranna and Bajji.

Newlywed couples are invited to the house of their in-laws and served with festive food. In the olden days, newlywed couples had to wait till Gowri Habba to consummate their marriage. The logic behind this practice is that if a child is conceived during Gowri Habba, which falls during the winter, the child would be born nine months later, during the summer, when it would be less prone to infections. This practice has been in place for years but has declined in recent times due to modernisation.

Kailash Shiva Romania Iraq Interconnected Underground Tunnels


The word Siva indicates auspiciousness.

It is an indicative word.

It refers to things that are complete(poorna) , auspicious .

Siva worship in the south of Vindhya Mountains in India, preceded the Sanatana Dharma of the North.

While only one mention of Siva is found in the Vedas, which are the most ancient literature available to us now,there are numerous references in Tamil, a language of India, which runs parallel to Sanskrit, in texts which are old by about 74,000 years.

This is also not correct.

There ia a site in Chennai, India, where an advanced civilization has been found , dating back to One Million Years!

They quote the Vedas.

The Vedas, in turn quote Tamil!

It is difficult to find which precedes the other.

Yet people ascribe  5000 BC as the date for the Rig Veda!

Thiruvannamalai is  about three billion years old.

Tirupati is  2100 million years old.

Kailash Glowing.jpg Kailash Glowing, Image credit.coolnature photos.

Jwalapuaram, Kurnool,India is 74, 000 years old, and confirmed by Mount Tobas’ emissions.

Atomic scientists are unable to find the composition of the idol of Lord Subrahmanya , Palani,Tamil Nadu, India.

Evidence of Sanatana Dharma throughout the world is available .

Bucegi Mountains.jpg Bucegi Mountains.

Highly advanced concepts in Science are found in the Vedas and they are validated by latest developments in Modern Science.

So it comes to me as no surprise that there exists a maze of tunnel networks throughout the world.

All of these have one thing in common.

Mount Kailash!

The Abode of Lord Siva was reported to contain a Huge Pyramid underneath and there were beings from another dimensions.

 

Please check my posts for all the statements made here.

 

Now I received information from a source in the US, who does not want to be identified( he is not an Indian) and from a reader of my blogs from France, about the existence of a maze of underground tunnels in the land of Dracula, Rumania.

I am providing excerpts from the research papers of Mr.Peter Moon, at the close of the Post.

There are Nazca Lines in Peru, resembling Shiva’s trishul.

We have ancient Egyptians, Aborigines of Australia sporting Vaishnava marks .

The trident dance of Shiva is being performed by the Australian Aborigines even to-day.

All the cultures Incas, Sumerians, Incas, Mayans,Celtic, Mesopotamians trace their roots to Sanatana Dharma.

The present findings talk about a mountain find dating back to 50,000 years, where location was found, which was blocked by mysterious energy.

On entering this field , with great difficulty, it is found to have rooms with tables.

While some of them analyse your DNA others dealt with the History of the Cosmos, scientific concepts, Aliens, medicine, most of which we are unable to decipher.

One could see every thing in a Hologram in the room!

I shall not comment on this and would urge you to read straight.

Remember this Mountain relics have been dated only 50, 000 years whereas the Sanatana Dharma iss at least a Million years Old.

The report.

(I shall be writing more on this subject from the Sanatana Dharma angle and references)

A Summary of the discovery in 2003
There are 4 primary tunnels and further sub tunnels that lead to deeper and bigger places which you will have heard of but with different names.
In these tunnels you will find rooms, huge rooms, with huge tables and stone chairs for people much, much taller than us.
The projection room contains all our history and can be replayed visually.
A table where you can perform holographic experiments with DNA, mix and match anything you wish and see what the results would be.
These rooms were created 50,000 years ago and each is connected to each other, protected by a energy source which actives all as one is activated.
The locations are; Near the Sphinx in Egypt, Baghdad, Mount Kailash in Tibet and the Bucegi Mountains in Romania. The inner tunnels lead to a secret World under the Gobi Plateau in Mongolia and to Antarctica.
This connects to WWII and the German Tibet expedition, Romania being fast-tracked into NATO, hollow earth, the eye above the pyramid and more.
Since the declassification of the new ground-penetrating radar 2 years ago, the most staggering data has emerged of complex and labyrinthine underground systems in various parts of the world. At places like Guatemala in the South Americas, tunnels have been mapped under the Mayan pyramid complex at Tikal, which extend a full 800 kilometers to the opposite side of the country. Investigators remarked, it was possible to understand how half a million Mayan Indians escaped the decimation of their culture.

This is an ancient Hindu drawing of tunnels
connected from a mountain (Mount Kailash)
What happened in Romania
Ground-penetrating radar

Romania.png Romania.

In the summer of 2003, in an unexplored area of the Bucegi mountains, an epochal discovery was found that would completely change the destiny of mankind.

Since the declassification of the new ground-penetrating radar 2 years ago, the most staggering data has emerged of complex and labyrinthine underground systems in various parts of the world. At places like Guatemala in the South Americas, tunnels have been mapped under the Mayan pyramid complex at Tikal, which extend a full 800 kilometres to the opposite side of the country. It was using this very technology that the most remarkable discovery was made.

The discovery in Romania
Colossal diplomatic pressures came from the United States of America and the Vatican on the Romanian Government to not disclose to the whole world this discovery and so it led to a temporary agreement between the Vatican, USA and Romania. The USA fast-tracked Romania into NATO [confirmed] and the Vatican gave the Romanian Government some very important documents relating to the countries past.

A Pentagon geodetic satellite scan of the mountain revealed two major energetic blocks. The dams were made of artificial energy: the first was a wall that was blocking access to the tunnel. The second was huge, like a dome or hemisphere, at the opposite end of the tunnel, near the center of the mountain. The whole tunnel-hemisphere was in a plane parallel to the ground, and the dam is vertical hemispherical corresponding rocks on the ridge called “Babele”. In fact, the vertical slope ended at about 40 meters between Babele and the Sphinx of Bucegi (Sfinxul din Bucegi).

The Pentagon team noted that hemispherical energy barrier has the same vibrational frequency and the same shape as one another very secret underground structure that they had discovered before, near Baghdad, Iraq. Shortly after this discovery, the Iraqi war broke out and after a few months Americans had access to the biggest secret in the area, which the Iraqis knew nothing about.

They managed to drill past the first barrier but the second could not be bypassed. Anything that was thrown onto this barrier turned to dust and when soldiers got too close to the barrier they would collapse from a cardiac arrest. (How they got through is posted later in this thread) but once through they entered what was known as “the grand gallery”.

The wall inside the Grand Gallery seemed synthetic but also felt like something organic was part of it. It had the color of oil, but the reflections were green and even blue. At 280 feet, the gallery suddenly turned to the right in a sharp angle. At a greater distance a blue light was noticed, that sparkle like a star. The blue light at the end of the gallery was just the reflection of the protective shield of energy.

In the Iraqi underground 
The U.S. adviser on national security issues was notified that the energetic shield from Iraq (in Baghdad) was suddenly activated, pulsating at a high frequency. In front of the shield also appeared a hologram of the planet, which sequentially and progressively depicted the European Continent, then south-east, then The Bucegi Mountains from Romania and then finally showing their location within the structure’s corridor. It was obvious that the two hemispherical energy shields were in a direct connection.

Tables for giants
The entrance hall contained a series of huge stone tables. None of the tables have a height less than two meters. On the table tops were cut in relief, with precision, different signs of an unknown writing, characters that resemble ancient cuneiform. The writing also contains more general symbols such as triangles and circles. Although the signs are not painted, they come out with a fluorescent light radiation in different colors from table to table.
There are five tables on each side of the room. On some of them are different objects that appear to be technical tools. From many of them descending to the ground, are a lot of white, translucent wires which gather into rectangular boxes of shiny, silver material. The boxes are placed directly onto the ground. The cables are extremely flexible and lightweight and light pulses can be seen circulating along their length.

When approaching any of the tables, a holographic projection activates showing aspects of a particular scientific field. The three dimensional images are perfect and very large, with a height of almost two and a half meters. The projections run by themselves but at the same time they are interactive and depend on one who interacts with the tables by touching their surfaces.

Genetic combinations 
At one table the subject is biology and the projected image are of plants and animals, some completely unknown. Tapping one of the squares, the hologram shows the structure of the human body. It develops holographic images of various areas of the body that always rotate. Other squares show projections of other beings, on other celestial bodies. By tapping simultaneously two different squares, a complex scientific analysis shows the DNA of both beings and possibilities of compatibility between them. On the side vertical lines appear, containing explanations (but in the strange writing seen everywhere) and at the end, the most probable mutant form appears as a result after combining the two genetic information.

True Giants
A confirmation of the giants in Romania can be found in a newspaper called “The Newspaper”: “The team at the newspaper is accompanied by researcher Vasile Rudan, who noted that the” stories “of people from the village Bozioru about giants who lived on those lands have concrete evidence: a cemetery with skeletons of giants. It was discovered by chance over 20 years ago, when it was decided in a village called Scaieni to plant apple trees. Digging on a hill, the villagers discovered huge skeletons, measuring about 2.40 meters, even more. “Everywhere are the tombs of the giants. We were making holes, to plant saplings, when we found a human head, as big as a pumpkin. Neither one of us had ever seen anything like that. We were all amazed. Sapping further and we found some bones of the feet, as big as the wine stakes. The dead one must have been very big.”

The library of the Universe.
On each side of the room are arranged five huge tables each one hosting screenings of physics, cosmology, astronomy, architecture, technology, an area that features several races of intelligent beings – who were apparently not all human – and a field of religion . Seems like a huge library of the universe. In the middle of the room is a podium that is installed in a device, possible an energy thought amplifier.

The true history of the planet
In the middle of the square is a huge dome which projects a hologram of moving parts. It contains the main aspects of the very distant past of humanity, from its very beginning. Darwin’s evolutionary theory is therefore completely false. The true origin of man is depicted in a condensed holographic form. After these lessons of truth, we can say that 90% of the official history of mankind is false and counterfeit. Unbelievable, but what is considered to have really happened is mostly lies, while the myths and legends of the people are almost all true.

This strange inversion caused many problems and conflicts between people in our past. Also, most archaeological theories are false. Some “fantasies” of scholars such as the dinosaur extinction theory 65 million years ago or considering old continents of Lemuria and Atlantis as a myth are now completely shattered by the holographic projection that shows clearly how things have happened in reality. From time to time, the hologram kept the event’s image but in the background was projected the sky map containing the marked position of all major stars and constellations of that exact time. Because of this, the exact dating of the events shown in the presentation was possible.

Although the time period covered by the projections is very large (several hundred thousand years), and the precession cycle of the Earth is 25,920 years, by observing the number of “Plato years” (the 25,920-year cycle) the exact dating of the events was possible. The Bucegi Mountains were formed 50-55 thousand years ago.

Shocking Revelations
The author acknowledges that he actually saw what really happened at the Great Flood and where the germs of human civilization occurred, but he doesn’t have the permission to reveal the reality because this involves too shocking realities for the mentality, ideas and knowledge of the contemporary man.

In a disturbing display of images the existence of Jesus and his crucifixion on the cross is also shown. The projections reveal many of those who witnessed the crucifixion of Jesus on the hill who were at that time, but had come there from other historical periods. Those humans did not differ in clothing by the jewish people present at the time of the crucifixion, however, they had different facial features and that’s why they were hiding their faces in the clothing folds the best they could. The hologram also shows sequences of the spiritual lives and missions of other exceptional characters from the very distant past of mankind, of which we don’t know anything now. In those times, the social and population distribution were completely different from what is know today, so the archaeologists and anthropologists should review their concepts from scratch.

The three mysterious tunnels
The tunnels spread over thousands of kilometers in three different areas of the planet.

The left one leads somewhere in Egypt, into a secret and yet undiscovered ensemble, which is buried under the sand. The right tunnel reaches a similar, but smaller structure, in the “Tibet Plateau”. In this second tunnel, are also found three secondary ramifications. One leads to a basement area of Buzau (Romanian city), near the Carpathians bend. Another leads to the underground structure of Iraq, near Baghdad (the one we spoke of earlier). The final ramification leads underneath the Gobi Plateau in Mongolia.

A secret world
The third tunnel, located centrally between the other two, is the subject of a secret world of which the U.S. wanted a very strong guarantee it would not be revealed. Down the central tunnel inside the planet’s crust and may provide an answer to the origin of structure inside the mountain and those who built it.
Intense preparations begun for expeditions on all 3 tunnels, as following:
-the first one to Egypt, second one to Tibet, and the final one to Earth’s core.

In 2009, a local television “Antena 1” briefly presented these events. After the show they’ve received an anonymous phone threat.
This is the call translated:

The reporter from Antena 1 answers the phone:
Reporter: Hello, good day!
Anonymous caller: We’re sending you a warning: be very careful! Stop talking about the Bucegi (Mountains)!
R: Who are you?
A: This information must remain at the level of some structures and must not be made public! You’ve entered a dangerous game! You are young, you have families…there are enough subjects in this country to speak about!
R: Mister, who are you?
A: Don’t wish to know us…to be yourself interviewed by us! That’s all I’ve had to say!”

Jatadhara Shiva Mount Kailash Face Underground Tunnels


Mount Kailash is intriguing, both from Legends and Geography.

It has been reported in Russian scientific circles that it is a world of other dimension.

“Nor should one ignore recent Russian studies of Tibet and the Kailas range in particular, the results of which, if true, could radically alter our thinking on the growth of civilizations. One of the ideas the Russians have put forward is that Mt. Kailas could be a vast, human-built pyramid, the centre of an entire complex of smaller pyramids, a hundred in total. This complex, moreover, might be the centre of a world–wide system connecting other monuments or sites where paranormal phenomena have been observed. It is difficult to explain all the available information in a short article for UN Special. I have copied in the photo below the pyramidal complex as proposed by the Russians. The idea of the pyramid in this region is not new. It goes back to the timeless Sanskrit epic of the Ramayana.”…’

Mount Kailash, man-made Pyramids, Beings from another dimension.

I also received information from a reader in the US that Mr.Peter Moon has done exhaustive research on this subject.

Peter went out on his own in 1983 and moved to Long Island where his background in dealing with mind control phenomena and spiritual liberation enabled him to forge an association with scientist Preston Nichols, one of the world’s foremost experts in the world on electromagnetic phenomena who had been involved in strange experiments at the Montauk Air Force Station on Long Island which included the manipulation of time. Their collaboration in “The Montauk Projct: Experiments in Time” and its subsequent sequels have now reached legendary proportions.
Peter has continued his own investigation into the occult forces behind the Montauk Project and has also collaborated with Dr. David Anderson of the former Time Travel Research Center which has now been reincorporated as the Anderson Institute. After Peter and Preston’s books had been translated into the Romanian language, Dr. Anderson invited Peter to Romania where he has pursued remarkable mysteries beneath the Romanian Sphinx in the Bucegi Mountains which have been published in “Transylvania Sunrise” by Radu Cinamar with Peter Moon. This book concerns the discovery of the most amazing archeological artifact in the history of Mankind, a chamber that contains a holographic record of the Earth’s history as well as holographic readouts of human DNA and other species.’

He reports that there are underground tunnels connecting Transylvania, Rumania with Tibet and Mount Kailash.

There is a Holographic Room in the underground Chamber and it contains ancient historical manuscripts.

I shall be writing on this in detail.

In the mean while I  was curious about the name Jatadhara, describing Lord Shiva.

Jatadhara means one with matted locks.

Ganges descending into Shiva's Matted Locks.Jatadhara Shiva.jpg

Ganges descending into Shiva’s Matted Locks.Jatadhara Shiva.

Bhagiratha, ancestor of Rama took to penance to bring Ganges down to earth, to perform the ancestors’ right( sons of Sagara)

The Ganges got locked in the matted locks of Lord Shiva and Bhagiratha had to perform another tapas(penance) to Shiva to make Him release the Ganges from His matted Locks.

Shiva is fundamentally a Yogi and is described as the first Siddha of the world.

Yogis normally do not pay much attention to looks and their hair is matted.

It is a coincidence that the face of Kailash looks as Matted locks of hair.

This is the Image.

Nataraja Chidambaram Represents Orion Super Nova Explosion 1054 AD


The details that have been taken into account to construct a Temple in India of the olden days is amazing.

These details reveal not only the depth of Devotin to the Deity/ies,but also the deep knowledge they had of the universe and its principles.

Lord Nataraja.jpeg

Lord Nataraja.

The designs of these temples are narrated in the Agama sastra.

Please refer my Posts on this.

The Building of the halls, breaking them up into Praharas(outer Corridor),Mandapas(halls),Artha Mandapas( halls of half the measurement of the Mantapas),Pillared Halls, Sabha Mantapas and the Sanctum, Garbha Gruha…..

all these follow either geological or magnetic , electromagnetic, astronomical principles or all of these put together.

I shall be writing on these aspects of some great temples of India.

I shall start with the Thillai Natarja temple, Chidambaram, Tamil Nadu, India.

More than the well-known Temples, it is the less known temples which have astounding characteristics.

I have written on some of these.

For the present Let me concentrate on Nataraja, Chidambaram.

Nataraja,a form of Shiva, temple in Chidambaram is one of the Pancha Bhutha Sthalas(,Earth, Water, Fire,Air and Ether)

representing the Ether.

There is Empty Space in the enclosure adjacent to Nataraja idol in the temple.

Aarthi is performed to this Space after an Aarthi is offered to Nataraja.

This empty Space reflects the Abstract principle Brahman, the Reality.

Researches  have been conducted on this temple on various aspects, its construction, Roof, Pillars, Magnetic Radiation,

Natarja’s Big Toe is presumed to represent the center of the universe.

It is also stated that Lord Nataraja ‘s big toe is the Centre Point of World ‘s Magnetic Equator.

Chidambaram ,Kanchipuram and Sri Kalahasti lie in a straight line at 79* 41 East Longitude.

Curious as these happen to be among the Panchabhuta Sthalas, Places of Five Elements, Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether.

The temple for water is in Thiruvanaikaval, fire is inThiruvannamalai , air is in Kalahasti ,  earth is  in  Kanchipuram  and The temple for space/sky is in Chidambaram.

Earth is nestled between Sky/Ether/Space, Aakasa( Chidambaram) and Air,Vayu(Kalahasti).

Earth is surrounded by Space and Air.

Ans Vishnu’s Nabhi, Navel of Vishnu has been validated as the  Center of Our Galaxy.

Read here.

The Southern Cross and Canopus tally with Trishanku Swarga and Agasthya Star respectively.

Hence I did not want to dismiss the point that Chidambaram being the Centre of earth’s /universe’s Magnetic field.”

Research into the Idol of Lord Nataraja  scholars indicate and confirm that the Idll’s design represents the Crab super Nova Explosion of 1054 AD!

‘Although the Nataraja metal icon with right leg extended was regarded as a tenth century Chola innovation, this study suggested that two fine Nataraja bronzes previously classified as Chola better fitted the metallurgical profile of Pallava bronzes of about 800 AD (Srinivasan 2001, 2004). The likely worship of Nataraja by the Pallava period at Chidambaram with ideas of cosmic creation and destruction is suggested in Manikkavachakar’s Tiruvachakam, which says, ‘Let us praise the Dancer (kuttan) who in good Tillai’s hall dances with fire, who sports (vilaiyatu), creating, destroying, this heaven and earth and all else’ [Dehejia (2002: 103)]. For me, it has been rather lovely and apt, that what had not really been discerned by conventional art history had been revealed through the dance of science and its patterns of elemental and isotopic particles. …

There seem to be astronomical connotations to the rituals associated with Nataraja worship at the Chidambaram temple. Arudra/Ardra darisanam is a ten-day annual festival in December related to the moon being full in the lunar asterism of the naksatra ardra (the reddish star Betelguese or Alpha Orionis), associated with the wrathful aspect of Siva. The constellation of Orion and surrounding stars is bathed in the soft glow of the full moon when it is high in the sky at Chidambaram. A thousand years ago, devoid of the present smog and light flares, the stars must have been even brighter in the tropical night sky.

Another annual festival at Chidambaram, the Brahmotsavam of Ani Thirumanjanam, which is related to the lunar asterism of Uttara Nakshatra around June-July, seems to have begun in the mid-eleventh century from inscription. The Indian zodiac of 360 degrees is divided into 27 parts based on the moon’s sidereal period such that a nakshatra denotes the longitudinal position of the moon within 13 degrees 20 minutes. Thus, by using astronomical software, Dr. Raghavan could ascertain that in 1054 AD the moon would have been full in Uttara Nakshatra on 11 July. This is uncannily close to the date that Chinese astronomers recorded the crab supernova explosion of 4 July! Although this is a preliminary finding, it could suggest a perceived metaphoric link between an observed cosmic phenomenon and notions of cosmic dance.

Indeed, a drawing from a Tamil manuscript sourced by Raja Deekshitar of Chidambaram shows how the Nataraja icon itself was probably traditionally visualized within the stars around Orion. In an exciting collaborative study with Dr. Raghavan, we took some photographs of Nataraja images dated from archaeometallurgical fingerprinting and plotted star charts for the constellation Orion of that corresponding era onto them. As reported in Orientations (Srinivasan, 2006), the star positions were found to a fair extent to correlate with iconometric design as noted in an image in the British Museum attributed from archaeometallurgical fingerprinting to the Pallava period (c. 800 AD). Moreover, the star chart for 1054 AD fitted well the iconometric design of a Nataraja image from Kankoduvanitham archaeometallurgically fingerprinted to the mid-eleventh century AD. Here, the hypothetical position of the crab supernova which exploded in 1054 AD lies near the top left of the head, close to the crescent moon. Chinese records suggest that the crab supernova came into view with a morning crescent moon near it and was visible for 23 days, being four times as bright as Venus. Even American Indians are believed to have made cave paintings of a supernova with a crescent moon. Could it be that the iconometric design of this icon had indeed taken into account the observation of
the supernova explosion?

At any rate, the above studies suggest scope for further investigation into the history of astronomy. No less than celebrated astronomer Carl Sagan suggested that the Nataraja imagery conveyed ‘a premonition of modern astronomical ideas’

India In Antarctic Circle Daksha Underground Tunnel Antarctica?


While searching for information on the spread of Sanatana Dharma throughout the world , I come cross, at times, very strange information that seems to contradict our Knowledge of things and they even looked idiotic.

But when one searches with an open mind, the answer is startling and is borne by facts.

Shiva dances..gif

Shiva Tandava.

When I searched on the Color of Rama and Krishna, I landed with the information that the Ancestor of Rama was From the South.

He was Satyavrata Manu and it is backed by Bhgavatham ,Tamil Classics and geographical evidence of the great Flood in the south of India.

On Agastya Crossing to South, It has been validated by Star Canopus.

Thiruvannmlai is about 3 Million Years old.

Tirupati is 2100 million years old.

Jwalapurm in Kurnool, India is about 100, 000 years old.

Shiva Parvati marriage was about  40 Million Years ago, Proved by Tectonic Plate movements.

Now I have received information from a  source in the US, who does want to be identified, about an Underground Tunnel in Antarctic,

with Map Co ordinates.

Underground Tunnel in Antarctic?jpg

Underground Tunnel in Antarctic?

The Tunnel entrance is visible.

I am aware that people would call this  glacier or an Ice formation.

But there are some facts worth mentioning.

India was near the Antarctic Circle about 255 Million Years ago.

Geological survey reveals that the continents move constantly. Early on there was one large continent called Pangaea which later on split into two parts; Northern Pangaea (North America and Eurasia) commonly called as Laurasia and  Southern Pangaea (South America, Africa, India , Antarctica, and Australia ) which was called as Gondwanaland. After Pangaea split, Laurasia drifted northward and Gondwanaland drifted southward with the Indian sub-continent closer to the South Pole. The presence of divergent plate boundaries found in the middle of oceans or in the middle of a continent is proof of the existence of the large continent Pangaea. As the fragmented land masses moved away from each other sea water filled up the split and the continents as we know them now were formed. Ice age in Indian subcontinent and North America could be explained if these continents had been inside the polar or circumpolar zone; this would have happened when the Indian sub-continent was part of Gondwanaland. The Indian Sub-Continent was very near the South Pole and was inside the present Antarctic Circle. Refer to the following websites.

http://www.thehindu.com/news/states/tamil-nadu/article2094202.ece  Indian Subcontinent was near South Pole.

http://www.atlas.keystone.edu/research/geology/03HistoricalGeology.htm

It is confirmed that the Indian Sub-continent was close to the South Pole during the Late Permian period which was around 255 MYA ago. There are many Rig Vedic hymns that describe the duration of day and night in the Polar regions. There are also hymns to describe the Polar dawn and other conditions that are unique to the Polar region. A question to explore would be, are the hymns referring to the period when Indian sub-continent was inside the Antarctic Circle or has there been a time in history when the Indian sub-continent was indeed inside the Arctic circle? Could it also be that the Indian sub-continent was inside the Antarctic Circle but there had been a 180 Deg flip in the poles with Antarctica situated at/near the North Pole? Science tells us that a 180 Deg flip in the poles is quite possible. Please refer  the following websites.

http://istp.gsfc.nasa.gov/earthmag/reversal.htm

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/11/111130171105.htm

http://www.crawford2000.co.uk/mag.htm

In summary, the Rig Vedic hymns which we will examine tomorrow might be referring to a remote point in history when the Indian sub-continent had been inside/near the Polar Regions. If we take it to be referring to the time when the Indian sub-continent was near the South Pole, we get the date for the Vedas in millions of years (Permian period – 255 MYA).  Either the Vedic Hymns are eye witness accounts of Polar conditions or geological studies were advanced enough during the Vedic period to have been able to explore the Polar Regions.

I shall be writing on the Polar Days and Nights as described in the Vedas.

Now to the tunnel.

1.Thiruvannamalai in Tamil Nadu, South India is about 3 Billion years old.

2.Tirupati, also in South India is 2100 Million years old.

3.Ancient Tamil site of advanced civilisation dated a Million Years is in Chennai, also in south.

4.Jwalapuram in Kurnool , which is about a Million years old is in Andhra Pradesh, also in the South Of India.

5.Vaiwasvatha Manu(Satyavrata Manu) was from the South.

6.Daksha Prajapathi is from the south.

7.Shiva was worshiped in the South much before the Vedas period.

8.While one can find the Patala Loka reference in Hinduism tallying with the presence of Mayan , Incas Civilisations and artifacts found in the US, Central Americas support the Patala Loka of Hinduism( Please read my post on these), there is a dearth of materail on this issue.

9.Refernces are found scattered in the Puranas about the three Patala Lokas.

10.Arctic being one of hte Patalas, can Antarctic be the other?

11.Considering the worship of Shiva in the  South preceding the Vedic Texts, the presence of temples and Hills in the South relating to the older periods, The presence of Agastya in the South, Tamil worship of Shiva and Subrahmanyaaas Murugan as predominat deities, probable that the Antarctic could have been the place for Daksha( though this contradicts Himalaya Dakshaand Dakshyayani(Sati) where he hid from Veerabhadra, who was created by Shiva to destroy Dasha Yagnya?

I have been forced to form a theory on these lines as there are more than One Daksha(he changes in every Manavatara) and there is a Temple in Kerala, Southern Tip of India where Daksha Yagnya is celebrated even today (Please read my Post on this)

Lalitha Devi Bandasura Home Sunken Beneath Caribbean Google Maps


 

One of the intriguing aspects of Sanatana Dharma, Hinduism is the places mentioned in them, in the Puranas, Ithihasas,Ramayana and Mahabharata seem to be both allegorical and real(which is verified)

Mount Meru,Chandra Loka, Dhruva( Pole Star)Agastya ( Canopus Star),Sisumara Chakra,Pancha Kosas,the Five sheaths of Human body)……….

All these have physical existence

Please read my Posts on each of these.

I had a call from a Gentleman from Houston ,Texas,US,who informed me that he had seen images of the Deavatas mentioned in our Texts, when he was cruising in the Caribbean.

To be more specific around Puerto Rico, Cuba.

Images flashed by as he was cruising and he felt charged for an instance.

To the doubting Thomases , let me add that he is a very practical man and is a contractor erecting satellites.

In a conversation lasting an hour, I was able to see a keen and observant individual with an open mind.

He did not wish his name to be mentioned.

He had an interpretation of this phenomena, which he had suggested I do not Publish.

However I am posting this with my interpretation, with the limited knowledge  I have of Sanatana Dharma Texts.

And the US is the Pathala Loka of Hinduism.

Am looking for more evidence.

After the annihilation of Bhandasura, Trimurtis called upon the cosmic architect Viswakarmaand the architect of demons Maya, and instructed them
to construct 16 palaces in 16 kshetras (sacred places) for the residence of Lalita &Shiva KameswaMeruand other gigantic mountains (9) Jalasamudraand
other oceans (7) –total 16Kshetras.
The palatial buildings of mother goddess in these kshetras are called Sripura.
360. Wherever a Sripura is located , its dimensions are like this.
A.)Mount Meru has 4 peaks,
One on the eastern side, one on north-west, one on the south-west,
Each is 100 yojanas tall and 100 yojanas wide these are trimurti worlds,
.
In the center of these is the fourth, which is 400 yojanas tall and 400 yojanas wide.
B.) Sripura is on the Middle peak
Sripura has metallic compound walls 7 in number they are square-shaped. Eachwall is separated from the next one by one a distance of 7 yojanas.

Kalayasa (iron)wall – The perimeter of this wall is 16 thousand yojanas.
2.
Kansya (bronze)wall—Between these two is the first chamber. Several trees and gardens are located here.
Mahakali and Mahakala are the gate keepers.
Kalachakra is their throne.
‘Images of Ganesha have been excavated in plenty in Mexico. This god with the elephant’s trunk is frequently depicted in Mexican manuscripts . Lord Ganesha ‘Ekadant Ganesh’ was found in the temple at Kopan .

 

The image of Hanuman called by the name ‘Wilka Huemana’ and measuring 50 feet in height and 12 feet in breadth was found in Guatemala. Similar one was found during an excavation of an Aztec temple in Mexico City and was known as ‘Euhectal’, a wind God, a monkey God.

The Hindu doctrine of the ages is found on a massive stone monolith popularly known as the Aztec calendar. This amazing piece of stone disc is 12 feet in diameter and weights more than 20 tons.

 

A festival called Sita-Ram (Situa – Raimi) was celebrated in Mexico during Nav-Ratri or Dussehra period which has been described on page 5867 in the book ‘Hamsworth History of the World’.  ( read my post0

Both in Central and South America, there are found Sati cremation, priesthood, gurukul system, yajna, birth, marriage and death ceremonies to some extent similar to the Hindus. When Pizarro killed Peruvian King Atahualpa his 4 wives committed Sati—or self sacrifice.

Same with Hindu concepts of cataclysm, rebirth, four yugas and the concept of two planets like Rahu and Ketu causing solar eclipse

AZTEC OF MEXICO is derived from “worshipper of Ashtabhuja or Ashtak ( 8 armed ) ” , the eight armed God- found in Mexican temples.

Vimana Aircraft Types From Rig Veda Purana Kalidasa


I have written on the types of Vimanas referred to in ancient Texts.

Aircarft Drawing done in 1923 Based on Ancient Vimana Texts of India.jpg Aircraft Drawing done in 1923 Based on Ancient Vimana Texts of India.

Rig Veda

I have also written on the Aircraft designed and flown by Talpade in India, based on these ancient texts of Bharadwaja.

Rotating Vimanas,

Skyscrapers,

Private Aircrafts

Robots and space technology

I have posted articles on these as well.

here I present some texts and more references from the Rig Veda,Agastya Samhita.Artha Sastra and Kalidasa’s Vikramorvasiyaa.

 The Rig-Veda, the oldest document of the human race includes references to the following modes of transportation: Jalayan a vehicle designed to operate in air and water (Rig Veda 6.58.3).

Kaara- Kaara- Kaara- a vehicle that operates on ground and in water.

(Rig Veda 9.14.1)

Tritala- Tritala- Tritala- a vehicle consisting of three stories.

(Rig Veda 3.14.1);

Trichakra Ratha, Trichakra Ratha, Trichakra Ratha,
a three-wheeled vehicle designed to operate in the air.

(Rig Veda 4.36.1)

Vaayu Ratha, a gas or wind-powered chariot. 

(Rig Veda 5.41.6)

Vidyut Ratha a vehicle that operates on electromagnetic power.

(Rig Veda 3.14.1).

              The “Agastya Samhita” gives us Agastya’s descriptions of two types of aeroplanes. The first is a “chchatra” (umbrella or balloon) to be filled with hydrogen. The process of extracting hydrogen from water is described in elaborate detail and the use of electricity in achieving this is clearly stated. This was stated to be a primitive type of plane, useful only for escaping from a fort when the enemy had set fire to the jungle all around. Hence the name “Agniyana”. The second type of aircraft mentioned is somewhat on the lines of the parachute. It could be opened and shut by operating chords. This aircraft has been described as “vimanadvigunam” i.e. of a lower order than the regular aeroplane. Bhardwaja’s “Vaimanika Shastra” not only gives information on his methods of aeroplane construction but also provides a bibliography. He had consulted six treatises by six different authors previous to him. After him too there have been four commentaries on his work. Planes which will not break (abhedya), or catch fire (adaahya) and which cannot be cut (achchedya) have also been described. Along with the treatise there are diagrams of three types of aeroplanes , “Sundara”, “Shukana” and “Rukma”. It appears that aerial warfare was also not unknown, for the treatise gives the technique of “shatru vimana kampana kriya” and “shatru vimana nashana kriya” i.e. shaking and destroying enemy aircraft, as well as photographing enemy planes, rendering their occupants unconscious and making one’s own plane invisible.
 
         The Arthasastra of Kautilya (c. 3rd century B.C.) mentions amongst various tradesmen and technocrats the Saubhikas as ‘pilots conducting vehicles in the sky’. Saubha was the name of the aerial flying city of King Harishchandra and the form ‘Saubika’ means ‘one who flies or knows the art of flying an aerial city’. Kautilya uses another significant word ‘Akasa Yodhinah’, which has been translated as ‘persons who are trained to fight from the sky.’ The existence of aerial chariots, in whatever form it might be, was so well-known that it found a place among the royal edicts of the Emperor Asoka which were executed during his reign from 256 B.C. – 237 B. C. Only a few years ago, the Chinese discovered some Sanskrit documents in Lhasa, Tibet and sent them to the University of Chandrigarh to be translated. Dr. Ruth Reyna of the university said that the documents contain directions for building interstellar spaceships! The Chinese announced that they were including certain parts of the documents for study in their space program(* I had written on the ancient Sanskrit Texts found in Lhasa, Tibet)..’

The Rig Veda, the oldest document of the human race includes references to the following modes of transportation:

  • Jalayan – a vehicle designed to operate in air and water. (Rig Veda 6.58.3)
  • Kaara- Kaara- Kaara- a vehicle that operates on ground and in water. (Rig Veda 9.14.1)

  • Vidyut Ratha- Vidyut Ratha- Vidyut Ratha- a vehicle that operates on power. (Rig Veda 3.14.1).

Kathasaritsagara refers to highly talented woodworkers called Rajyadhara and Pranadhara. The former was so skilled in mechanical contrivances that he could make ocean crossing chariots. And the latter manufactured a flying chariot to carry a thousand passengers in the air. These chariots were stated to be as fast as thought itself. (source: India Through The Ages: History, Art Culture and Religion – By G. Kuppuram p. 532-533).


According to Dr. Vyacheslav Zaitsev:

“the holy Indian Sages, the Ramayana for one, tell of “Two storied celestial chariots with many windows” “They roar like off into the sky until they appear like comets.” The Mahabharata and various Sanskrit books describe at length these chariots, “powered by winged lighting…it was a ship that soared into the air, flying to both the solar and stellar regions.”
(source: Temples and Spaceships – By V. Zaitsev – Sputnik, Jan. 1967 and Hinduism in the Space Age – By E. Vedavyas p. 31-32

The mention of airplanes is found many times throughout Vedic literature, including the following verse from the Yajur-Veda describing the movement of such machines:

“O royal skilled engineer, construct sea-boats, propelled on water by our experts, and airplanes, moving and flying upward, after the clouds that reside in the mid-region, that fly as the boats move on the sea, that fly high over and below the watery clouds. Be thou, thereby, prosperous in this world created by the Omnipresent God, and flier in both air and lightening. (Yajur Veda, 10.19)

Vimanas  in Ramayana.

It was capable of accommodating all the vanaras besides Rama, Sita and Lakshman.

             Again in the Vikramaurvaisya, we are told that king Puraravas rode in an aerial car to rescue Urvasi in pursuit of the Danava who was carrying her away. Similarly in the Uttararamacarita in the flight between Lava and Candraketu (Act VI) a number of aerial cars are mentioned as bearing celestial spectators. There is a statement in the Harsacarita of Yavanas being acquainted with aerial machines. The Tamil work Jivakacintamani refers to Jivaka flying through the air. Kathasaritsagara refers to highly talented woodworkers called Rajyadhara and Pranadhara. The former was so skilled in mechanical contrivances that he could make ocean crossing chariots. And the latter manufactured a flying chariot to carry a thousand passengers in the air. These chariots were stated to be as fast as thought itself.

The Arthasastra of Kautilya (c. 3rd century B.C.) mentions amongst various tradesmen and technocrats the Saubhikas as ‘ pilots conducting vehicles in the sky’. Saubha was the name of the aerial flying city of King Harishchandra and the form ‘Saubika’ means ‘one who flies or knows the art of flying an aerial city.’ Kautilya uses another significant word ‘Akasa Yodhinah’, which has been translated as ‘persons who are trained to fight from the sky.’ The existence of aerial chariots, in whatever form it might be, was so well-known that it found a place among the royal edicts of the Emperor Asoka which were executed during his reign from 256 B.C. – 237 B. C. The Vaimanika Shastra (Hindi edn) refers to about 97 works and authorities of yore of which at least 20 works deal with the mechanism of aerial Flying Machine, but none of these works is now traceable. The Yuktikalpataru of Bhoja includes a reference to aerial cars in verses 48-50 and a manuscript of the work belonging to the Calcutta Sanskrit College dated at 1870 A.D.

We are thus in possession of some manuscript material and from the above it appears that there were Vimanas or aircrafts in ancient India and they followed the route over the western sea i.e. Arabian Sea – Africa – Atlantic ocean – Latin America/Mexico, this being the shortest route.

Some ships also might have followed this route, but most of the cargo ships, however, had to follow the longer route over the Pacific ocean via Indonesia – Polynesia – Latin America/Mexico because of the favorable trade winds and the equatorial currents which made the navigation easier.

And if the ancient Indians could perhaps boast of some form of air travel the Nazca lines of Peru acquire an added significance. Not only the scriptural references of aircrafts and the routes of navigation, even some base landing sites might have possibly been found in the tangled outlines and figures in the Pampas of Nazca. Maria Reiche, a German scientist, through her life-long dedication studied these seriously, preserved them from destruction and publicized them before the world. The huge figures which are visible from the sky might have helped the ancient pilots (Sauvikas) of India to land in Peru.

(For more information please refer to Chapters on Pacific, Suvarnabhumi, War in Ancient India, Hindu Scriptures and Seafaring in Ancient India).


The Nazca lines of Peru seem to be landing signal for the air chariots of pre-Colombian times. There are several references in Sanskrit texts about the Indian Vimanas carrying kings and dignitaries to pataldesa.Ramayana describes Ravana’s flight from Varunalaya (Borneo) to Rasatala (Peru).


Prof. D. K. Kanjilal analyses the legend of the Matsya Purana (chapters 129) in his Vimana in Ancient India in the following words:

“Behind the veil of legend and scientific truth comes out that three flying-cities were made for and were used by the demons. Of these three, one was in a stationary orbit in the sky, another moving in the sky and one was permanently stationed in the ground. These were docked like modern spaceships in the sky at particular time and at fixed latitude/longitudes. Siva’s arrow obviously referred to ablazing missile fired from a flying satellite specially built for the purpose and the brunt spaceship fell in the Indian ocean. Vestiges of onetime prosperous civilization destroyed in battles only flicker through these legends.


These references sharply point to the use of some kind of aerial flying vehicles known as Vimana apart from mechanical contrivances, armored cars, various types of missiles etc. These references sounding queer and unscientific even in recent past have been approximated to the present-day technology through the innovation of highly sophisticated weapons and of the space-satellites likeMariner, Vostok, Soyuz, Aryabhatta etc. These facts require more than a passing notice.


The flying vehicles were firstly designated Ratha (vehicle or carriage) in the Rig Veda. Vimanas possessed a very high speed. This aerial vehicle was triangular, large, 3-tier uneven and was piloted by at least three persons (tribandhura). It has three wheels which were probably withdrawn during aerial flight. In one verse the chariot is said to have three columns. It was generally made of anyone of the three kinds of metals, gold, silver or iron but the metal which usually went into its make up according to the Vedic text was gold. It looked beautiful. Long nails or rivets were attached to it. The chariot had three types of fuel. Possessing very fast speed, it moved like a bird in the sky soaring towards the Sun and the Moon and used to come down to the earth with great sound”.

(source: The Indians And The Amerindians

By Dr. S. Chakravarti p.141-146).

In addition to the Vaimanika Shashtra, the Samarangana Sutradhara and the Yuktikalpataru of Bhoja, there are about 150 verses of the Rig Veda, Yajurveda and the Atharvaveda, a lot of literary passages belonging to the Ramayana, the Mahabharata, the Puranas, the Bhagavata and the Raghuvamsa and some references of the darma Abhijnanasakuntalam of Kalidasa, the Abimaraka of Bhasa, the Jatalas.

The Avadhana Literature and of the Kathasaritsagara and a number of literary works contained either references to graphic aerial flight or to the mechanism of the aerial vehicles used in old ages in India. In the Ramayana both the words “Vimana” and “Ratha” have been used:

  • Kamagam ratham asthaya…nadanadipatim (3. 35. 6-7). He boarded the aerial vehicle with Khara which was decorated with jewels and the faces of demons and it moved with noise resembling the sonorous clouds.
  • You may go to your desired place after enticing Sita and I shall bring her to Lanka by air.. So Ravana and Maricha boarded the aerial vehicle resembling a palace (Vimana) from that hermitage.
  • Then the demons brought the Puspaka aerial vehicle and placed Sita on it by bringing her from the Ashoka forest and she was made to see the battle field with Trijata.
  • This aerial vehicle marked with Swan soared into the sky with loud noise.

Reference to Flying vehicles as Vimana occur in the Mahabharata in about 41 places of which the air attack of Salva on Krisna‘s capital Dwaraka deserve special notice. The Asura king Salva had an aerial flying machine known as Saubha-pura in which he came to attack Dwaraka.


He began to shower hails, and missiles from the sky. As Krishna chased him he went near the sea and landed in the high seas. Then he came back again with his flying machine and gave a tough fight to Krishna staying about one Krosa (about 4,000 ft) above the ground level. Krishna at last threw a powerful ground-to-air weapon which hit the plane in the middle and broke it into pieces. The damaged flying machine fell into the seas. This vivid description of the air attack occurs in the Bhagavata also. We also come across the following references to missiles, armaments, sophisticated war-machines and mechanical contrivances as well as to Vimanas in Mahabharata.

The inscriptions of emperor Asoka are by far the most authentic records in support of the existence of aerial flying vehicles which are mentioned as Vimana. The existence of aerial chariots in whatever form it might be was so well-known that it found a place among the royal edicts of the Emperor Asoka which were executed during his reign from 256 B.C.- 237 B.C. Vatsyana in his Kama Sutra referred to mechanical contrivances in their origin among 64 ancillary Sciences.

The Arthasastra of Kautilya (3rd century B.C), a treatise mainly dealing with political economy but containing information on kindred scientific topics refers to a class of mechanic known as Saubhika…

8. Sundara Vimana: Vertical Section

A discussion regarding the existence of and the use of flying vehicles in ancient India naturally waits for an advanced state of knowledge in cosmogony. A close and careful study of the Vedic literature shows that it was not just a collection of primeval poetry but a varied literature of a powerful and dynamic society where the people had the knowledge of cloud and vapor, of the season and of the monsoon, of the different types of wind, of the expanse of the sky, of the strength of the wind blowing at high speed and so on.

Three types of cloud have been referred to in the Rig Veda (1.101.4). which also states that smoke and vapor surcharged with water turn into cloud. Formation of vapor through heat and the subsequent formation of cloud has been referred to in the Vedas. Indian meteorological concepts thus date back to the age of the Rig Veda.

People wake up early in the morning on Friday and take a bath. Traditionally speaking the waking up time for the puja is the brahma muhurtham. Then the designated puja area and house is cleaned well and a beautiful ‘kolam’ or rangoli is drawn on the intended place of puja.

Next is the preparation of the ‘kalasham or kalash.’ A bronze or silver pot is selected and is cleaned thoroughly and a swastika symbol is drawn and is smeared with sandalwood paste. The kalasham pot is filled with raw rice or water, coins, a single whole lime, five different kinds of leaves, and beetle nut. The items used to fill the kalasham vary from region to region and includes turmeric, comb, mirror, small black bangles and black beads.

The kalasham up to the neck is sometimes covered with a cloth and mango leaves are placed on the mouth of the kalasham. Finally, a coconut smeared with turmeric is used to close the mouth of the kalasham. To this coconut, an image of Goddess Lakshmi is fixed or the image of Lakshmi is drawn using turmeric powder. Now the kalasham symbolically represents Goddess Lakshmi.

In some areas, women place a mirror behind the kalasham. Today, there are also specially made Varalakshmi pots available in the market.

The kalasham is usually placed on a bed of rice. First Lord Ganesha is worshipped. Then begins the Varalakshmi Puja. The puja consists of singing slokas dedicated to Goddess Lakshmi like the Lakshmi Sahasranamam. Arati is performed on the kalasham. Different types of sweets are offered. Some people offer pongal. In some areas women tie yellow thread on their hands.

The woman who is observing the Varalakshmi Puja abstains from eating certain kind of food and this varies from region to region. In some regions, women fast till the puja period.

Thamboolam – betel leaf, areca nut and slaked lime – is offered to women in the locality and in the evening an arati is offered.

The next day, that is on Saturday, after taking a bath the kalasham is dismantled and the water in the kalasham is sprinkled in the house. If rice is used then it is mixed with rice in the house.

There are no hard and fast rules in performing the Varalakshmi Puja and you can be flexible on the puja items. Even a simple prayer will please Goddess Lakshmi.

The legend.

On one occasion, Parvati and Parameswara were playing a game of paramapatham. Parvati was winning game after game by the rules, but Parameswara is said to have claimed the victory at each game, wantonly, to Parvati’s intense chagrin. So Parvati demanded to have an umpire and one Chitranemi, a creation of Parameswara, was chosen. As an underling of Parameswara, he sided with his master most unjustly. This provoked Parvati’s anger and she cursed Chitranemi that he should become a leper for discharging his duty in this most unfair manner.

When Chitranemi begged Parvati’s forgiveness and Parameswara added his entreaties to it, she is said to have relented and modified the curse by adding that he would be cured of his leprosy by observing the Vara Lakshmi Vrata. By doing this, Chitranemi was, it is said, rid of the loathsome disease.

The history of the origin Of the Vara Lakshmi Vrata is rather interesting. Lakshmi is said to have visited a pious woman by name Sarmadi, living in the city of Kuntinapura in Magadha (Bihar), in one of her dreams and expressed her satisfaction at her devotion to her children. When she woke up from her sleep, she took a bath and worshiped Lakshmi to ensure her blessings. When the other ladies heard of her dream and her worship of Lakshmi, they too began to worship her, and the custom is then said to have spread everywhere throughout the land in course of time….

This is a pooja that was pronounced by no other than Lord Parameswara to be performed by his consort Parvathi to seek prosperity and happiness for the family. Thus it came to be emulated by married women who sought boons (varam) for the health, wealth and knowledge for the entire family. In some cases, women prayed for being blessed with children.

Moon Dial Konark Calculate To A Minute Sun Dial


Many of us are aware of Sun Dials.

Sun Dial, Konark,India.png Sun Dial, Konark,India.

Many would have visited the one at New Delhi.

But how does one calculate Time with the help of a Sun Dial?

Take the famous Sun Dial at Konark, Odisha, India.

There are eight spokes in the Wheel.

‘The sundial has 8 major spokes that divide 24 hours into 8 equal parts, which means that the time between two major spokes is 3 hours. There are 8 minor spokes as well. Each minor spoke runs exactly in the middle of 2 major spokes. This means that the minor spoke divides the 3 hours in half, so the time between a major spoke and a minor spoke is an hour and half or 90 minutes.

Now, at the edge of the wheel, you can see a lot of beads. If you observe carefully, you can see that there are 30 beads between a minor and a major spoke. So, the 90 minutes are further divided by 30 beads. This means that each bead carries a value of 3 minutes. The beads are large enough, so you can also see if the shadow falls in the center of the bead or on one of the ends of the bead. This way we can further calculate time accurately to the minute.

The sundial shows time in an anti-clockwise fashion. At the top, the major spoke stands for midnight and this spoke stands for 3 A.M and this one for 6 A.M and so on. When I place a finger or a pen at the tail of the animal in the axle, the shadow will fall on the edge of the wheel. Now, I simply note the bead where the shadow falls. Using the math we did before, I can easily tell the current time precisely down to the minute. Imagine how much time and coordination would have happened between the astronomers, engineers and sculptors to create something like this 750 years ago.

Now if you are observing closely, you would have 2 questions in your mind right now. The first question would be, what happens when the sun moves from east to west. Since the wheel is carved on a wall, the sun would not shine on this wheel at all. How can we tell time in the afternoons? Now, the Konark temple has another wheel or sundial, located on the west side of the temple as well. You can just use the other sundial that will work perfectly from afternoon, until sunset.

This is the second and the most interesting question. How do you tell time after sunset? There would be no sun, and hence no shadows from sunset till the next morning’s sunrise. After all, we have 2 sundials in the temple which work only when the sun shines. To this question, I want to point out that the Konark temple does not have just 2 wheels like this. The temple has a total of 24 wheels, all accurately carved just like the sundials. Have you heard of the Moondial? Do you know that the moondials can work just like sun dials during night time? What if the other wheels in the temple could be used as moondials?

Many people think that the other 22 wheels were carved for decorative or religious purposes and do not have an actual use. This is what people thought about the 2 sundials as well. Believe it or not, people thought that all the 24 wheels were just carved for beauty and as Hindu symbols. About 100 years ago, it became known that this was a sundial when an old yogi was seen calculating time secretly. Apparently selected people were using these wheels for generations and for 650 years no one else knew about it. They say that when they asked him about the purpose of the other 22 wheels, the yogi refused to talk and simply walked away.

And our knowledge of just these 2 sundials themselves is actually very limited. You can see how there are multiple circles of beads. You can see carvings and markings all over these sundials, and we don’t the meaning of most of them. For example, this carving on a major spoke has exactly 60 beads. Notice how in some carving you can see leaves and flowers which may mean Spring or Summer. Notice how in some carvings you can see lemurs mating, which only happens during winter. So, these sundials could have even been used as an almanac for a variety of different things. Now you can understand how limited our knowledge is about the rest of the 22 wheels.

Notice that there are clues on these wheels that people have overlooked for centuries. Notice how a woman wakes up and looks at a mirror in the morning. Notice how she is stretching, being tired and ready to go to sleep. And you can also see that she is engaging in sexual activity during night. For centuries, people have ignored these hints and thought that these were carvings of Hindu Goddesses.
This is also a perfect example of how people think ancient unexplainable carvings are just for beauty or religious purposes. If ancient people spent a lot of time creating something, there is a very good chance that it was done for a valuable, scientific purpose.

Moondials are time pieces similar to a sundial. The most basic moondial, which is identical to a sundial, is only accurate on the night of the full moon. Every night after it becomes an additional (on average)[note 1] 48 minutes slow, while every night preceding the full moon it is (again on average) 49 minutes fast, assuming there is even enough light to take a reading by. Thus, one week to either side of the full moon the moondial will read 5 hours and 36 minutes before or after the proper time.

More advanced moondials can include charts showing the exact calculations to get the correct time, as well as dials designed with latitude and longitude in mind.

Vedic Palm Manuscript Atreya Siksha In Germany In Tamil


When I posted an article on the information that Sri.Bandibatla Viswanatham Sastry, Rajamundry, Andhra Pradesh went to Germany and helped the germans to develop V-Rockest, which was used effectively by Hitler in World War II, thought there were positive comments, there was also derision that I was quoting from hearsay and legends which do not have authenticity.

I proceed in my quest to seek the Truth about Santana Dharma, despite some , from our soil, asking me to desist from pursuing the antiquity of Sanatna Dharma.

Aitreya Palm Leaf manuscript in Germany. in Tamil.jpg Aitreya Palm Leaf manuscript in Germany. in Tamil.

I followed up the notion that the Vedic Texts were smuggled to Germany.

For this, I took my grandfather Professor. Geometry Narayana Iyer’s words, for if a grandson does not belive a grandfather, who else would?

I think my grandfather would be happy, wherever he is now.

The Aitreya Shiksha is in Germany and to the surprise of many it is in ancient Tamil !

This also proves my Theory that Sanatana Dharma was in place in the South, probably even before the Sarasvati Valley!

The irony is that the Link was found, of all places in Pakistan defence Forum!

http://defence.pk/threads/help-recover-the-rare-text-on-vedic-phonology-from-germany.236826/

Here is the story.

Here is the long-awaited Ātreya Śikṣā. There are two versions, one is text only, the other is the critical edition with 141 footnotes.

http://is1.mum.edu/vedicreserve/shiksha/atreya_shiksha.pdf

Critical Edition: http://www.peterffreund.com/shiksha/atreya1_shiksha.pdf

We were originally attracted to Ātreya Śikṣā because it was chosen by Dr. Tony Nader, author of the landmark work, Human Physiology: Expression of Veda and Vedic Literature, who correlated the structure and function of the main texts of Shiksha with the 36 pairs of autonomic ganglia on each side of the spine. The Ātreya Śikṣā was specifically correlated with the Mesentericum inferius, one of the autonomic ganglia not located along the spine, but found in the gut, located at the origin of the inferior mesenteric artery where it branches off from the aorta. This ganglion contains the sympathetic neurons innervating the descending and sigmoid colon. (See attached picture at the bottom of this email!)  But this correlation of Ātreya Śikṣā with a small bundle of nerve fibers in the abdominal cavity, did not prepare us for the grand synthesis of the knowledge of Sanskrit phonetics which Ātreya presents in this work. Starting with the alphabet which the beginning student learns, he lays out a course of Vedic study, leading to complete mastery of the science of pronunciation. Pronunciation is for the sake of perfect recitation of the Veda. Vedic recitation is a means of gaining perfection, Pāṭha mātreṇa siddhyati, “Through mere recitation, one gains perfection.” Letter-perfect recitation of the Veda–because the Veda is the blueprint of Natural Law at the basis of the whole creation, the Constitution of the Universe–leads to the complete awakening of intelligence in the individual, awareness rising to command the total potential of Natural Law, in the highest state of consciousness, Unity Consciousness, which Ātreya calls Para Brahman. The knowledge of phonetics is placed in the broader context of culturing enlightenment in the individual, unfolding the hidden latent potential within the individual. Towards this end, Ātreya incorporates all the main themes and threads of Sanskrit phonetics, to create a comprehensive vision that unites the science of phonetics with the age-old tradition of Vedic recitation, and the experience of higher states of consciousness in the individual.

Picture of the aorta and (2/3 of the way down) the place where the Inferior mesenteric artery branches off from the aorta. The nerve ganglion around that branching point, the inferior mesenteric ganglion, is correlated with this Atreya Shiksha.Jpg Picture of the aorta and (2/3 of the way down) the place where the Inferior mesenteric artery branches off from the aorta. The nerve ganglion around that branching point, the inferior mesenteric ganglion, is correlated with this Atreya Shiksha.

The course of Vedic study begins with memorization of the Saṁhitā, and here the Taittirīya recension of Kṛiṣhṇa Yajur Veda is promoted as the first Veda to be learned by the student. After learning the Saṁhitā by heart through constant repetition, repeating it over and over with the teacher, like a gramophone record, the student begins a long and somewhat arduous journey of investigation into the detailed fabrics of the Saṁhitā text. The student starts this journey by learning the word by word recitation of the Vedic text. Whereas the words are put together in the Saṁhitā text, and there is mixing of sounds at the boundaries of words, called Sandhi, the Sandhi is resolved and the words are pulled apart in the Pada Pāṭha, or word by word recitation. Letters that are dropped or changed in Sandhi have to be restored in the Pada Pāṭha recitation, and there are many ambiguities which cannot be decided by inspection: Is the final n after long ā really a final n, or is it actually a final t which has been changed to n by Sandhi? If a long ā is followed by a voiced consonant at the start of the next word, was there originally a visarga (ḥ) which has been dropped by Sandhi, or was there just long ā? There is an entire class of texts, in Sanskrit phonetics, dealing with these issues, and serving as aids in the memorization of the Pada Pāṭha recitation. This group of texts includes the Ingya Ratnam which we have already visited, and they include also a group of texts called Sapta Lakṣaṇam. We will examine Sapta Lakṣaṇam and some of the other texts in this category in a future Ātreya Śikṣā mailing. Ātreya devotes one section to explaining the intricacies of the word by word recitation, particularly as regards the treatment of compound words.

After mastering the Pada Pāṭha, the student is now ready to begin the Krama recitation of the Veda. In the Krama recitation, two words at a time from the Pada Pāṭha are combined together with Sandhi, and recited: The first and the second, the second and the third, and then the third and the fourth, so that each word is repeated twice, once together with the previous word and once together with the following word. Some details of this recitation are explained in the section on Krama in Ātreya Śikṣā, and there are also some rare Śikṣā texts on this topic which we are trying to obtain.

The Saṁhitā and Krama recitations are called Prakṛiti recitations, because the original sequence of the Vedic text is maintained in these recitations. There are also more complex recitations of the words of the Veda, called Vikṛiti, and Ātreya devotes a section to explaining the first of these, called Jaṭā. In the Jaṭā recitation, each pair of words that are repeated in the Krama recitation, are now repeated three times, once forward in their normal sequence, then backward, in the reverse order, and then again forward in the normal sequence, ie.,1-2, 2-1, 1-2. There is a class of texts dealing with the Jaṭā recitation, and we will be visiting a half-dozen of these in a future Ātreya Śikṣā mailing. In addition to Jaṭā, there are seven other modes of Vikṛiti recitation, and these are discussed in another group of phonetic texts, one of which, Vyāla Śikṣā, we have already visited.

After the study of the Vikṛiti recitations of the Vedic text, which take many years to master, there is yet another level of recitation which explores in excruciating detail all the fine points of Vedic phonology. This is the Varṇakrama recitation. Varṇakrama means literally, letter by letter, and there are five kinds of Varṇakrama recitations, each increasingly more complex: The added complexity is not through alteration of sequence, but through giving more and more details of the phonological characteristics of each letter in sequence(1), the associated accent(2), the length (Kāla) of the sound(3), demarcation of plosives by what are called aṅgas (limbs of each vowel)(4) until in the fifth kind of Varṇakrama, called Varṇasārabhūta Varṇakrama(5), eight different parameters are described for each vowel, eight for each consonant, and ten different parameters for each Vedic accent, including the jāti (caste), and devatā of each letter. The description of the Varṇakrama recitation begins with verse 46.2 and continues through verse 281, as Detlef Eichler has so kindly pointed out. Thus the study of Varṇakrama forms the bulk of the content of Ātreya Śikṣā, There is one other well-known text which deals exclusively with Varṇakrama (although Varṇakrama itself is not well known) and that is Pāri Śikṣā. An excellent version of Pāri Śikṣā with numbered verses and clearly marked sections is included in the Hamburg palm leaves where Ātreya Śikṣā is also found, and there it is called Pañchavarṇakrama Lakṣaṇam. We will go into detail about the Varṇakrama recitation as described in Ātreya Śikṣā in the light of the description of Varṇakrama in Pāri Śikṣā in a future Ātreya Śikṣā mailing. The Varṇakrama recitation demands perfection in the letter perfect preservation and recitation of the Vedic text. Its treatment completes the unfoldment of Sanskrit phonetics in Ātreya Śikṣā.

Having completed the discussion of Varṇakrama, in the remaining verses, Ātreya describes the goal of Vedic study, the attainment of Brahman consciousness, and strongly emphasizes the importance of daily recitation of the Veda as taught by the guru.

Atreya Shiksha has 14 chapters and 64 named sections in those chapters. The verse count is said to be 294, but we seem to have 295. The verses are numbered in both manuscripts although sparsely. The Tirupati manuscript was said to be 500 to 600 years old; the Hamburg manuscript is probably 150 to 200 years old. But differences between the Hamburg and the Tirupati manuscripts are very few: these are noted with footnotes. Only rarely was the reading in the Tirupati manuscript clearer or more sound. The Hamburg manuscript has one more verse than the Tirupati manuscript, but this verse seems to belong. The Hamburg manuscript has three lines in a different position than in the Tirupati manuscript. We have settled with the position given them by the Hamburg manuscript. Further differences are more subtle. Only readings that were clearly different, and not due to poor penmanship (or insect damage) have been noted.

The chapters are noted with numbers in the Hamburg manuscript: The numbers are written on the left margin of the palm leaf, associated with the section title of the last section of the chapter. In the Tirupati manuscript, the end of the second chapter is marked with the word “dvaya.” This gives a hint that the chapter divisions are indeed authentic, and perhaps even original. But there is some lack of clarity as to where actually the chapter boundaries fall, since only sections are marked in the text, and only these little clues of numbers written after specific sections give indication of where the chapters start and end. The sections are occasionally noted with colophons; more frequently they are noted with a long horizontal line with a wave at the end, appearing at the end of a verse. Sometimes the section title will include the word “ādi” indicating that the section starts with the verse that begins with those words and that will establish the starting point of the section. Some sections are quite clear from their subject matter; while others are gauged more crudely by the position of the title notation in the margin. Since each line has about one and a quarter anustubh verses, there is some ambiguity for the starting point of some sections.

There are surprisingly few shared verses in Ātreya Śikṣā. Shared verses have been a hallmark of authenticity in Śikṣā texts, and there are just enough to convince us that we have an authentic, original text. There are 32 shared lines in Ātreya Śikṣā, which is about 5% of the whole. There are 18 different Śikṣā texts which have at least one shared line with Ātreya Śikṣā. Top of the list is Pāri Śikṣā with 17 shared lines, then Āpiśali with 7, Śambhu with 5, Kauṇḍinya (Mysore) with 3, Veda Śikṣā, Yajñavalkya, Varṇaratnapradīpikā, Kālanirṇaya, Pāṇini, Śaunaka, Śaiśirīya Śikṣā and Svarāṣṭaka with 2 lines each, and Lomaśi, Sarvasaṁmata, KauhalIya, Cārāyaṇīya, Svara Śikṣā, and Vyāsa Śikṣā each with one shared line. Quite surprisingly, Ātreya Śikṣā is the first text that we have come across which has shared lines with Vyāsa Śikṣa. Although there is a paucity of shared verses, and many verses with the same content and vocabulary have been apparently purposely reworked by one or the other author so that they do not match, like a school-boy being careful to avoid plagiarism, still there are enough shared verses to give the sense of Ātreya belonging to the community of Śikṣākāra’s, the ancient writers of phonetic treatises. As discussed before, Pāri Śikṣā is especially close in content to the Ātreya Śikṣā, and the number of shared verses does not reveal the intimate connection between the two texts: There are many more verses, many of them cited in the footnotes, which exhibit great similarity between Ātreya and Pāri Śikṣā, and many of the chapter titles of the two works are the same. Most of Pāri Śikṣā is in Triṣṭubh meter, with 22 syllables per line, while most of Ātreya Śikṣā is in the more common Anuṣṭubh meter, with only 16 syllables per line. This of course makes it more difficult for one to borrow from the other, but in verse 106, Ātreya does just that, using one and a quarter lines to quote a Triṣṭubh line, apparently from Pāri Śikṣā, concluding with iti proktās te, “Thus they said in ancient times.” This is a hint which gives some measure of validation to the proposal of Detlef Eichler, that Ātreya has simply reworked the material of the earlier Pāri Śikṣā, adding only a few additional sections at the beginning and the end. But regardless of the antecedents, and there are such connections precisely because he does stand within the tradition of Vedic Science, nevertheless, Ātreya’s borrowing does not detract from his accomplishment: Ātreya achieves what no other Śikṣā writer has attempted, namely, he presents to the world a textbook of enlightenment through Vedic recitation.

We are grateful to the Hamburg Staats-Universitaets Bibliothek (Library) for the preservation of this manuscript bundle and the extraordinarily clear photographs of the palm leafs. We would also like to thank Detlef Eichler for his many excellent suggestions and recommended changes of the typescript. And thanks again to all the Kickstarter Project supporters for your support and your patience. We now have the content needed to move ahead with the rewards promised as part of the Atreya Shiksha Project fundraising. And of course, the monthly updates will continue as we progress with the transcription of the 40 other texts in this manuscript bundle.

Gratefully yours,

Peter Freund and Vivek Vaidyanathan

The image that is in the article, showing Atreya Suktha,- the writing in the manuscript is Not Sanskrit.

It is Tamil, an ancient language of India, which is very much alive and has an ancient History matching Sanskrit and in fact it runs parallel to Sanskrit and The Vedas ,Puranas and Ithihasas of Sanskrit quote Tamil and Tamil also quotes them.

Surprising that how this has happened considering the nature of the Project.

Kindly effect necessary changes

This Manuscript in Tamil is an enormous find and would even alter Sanatana Dharma History.

My gratitude for such an intersting article.

How Much Do You Trust God


Faith Sustains, Cures, while Reason seeks out explanations.

For those in critical situations, solution to the problem is importnt than the explanations or the rationale.

Help reaches out to those who have Faith, I have seen.

It may not be some thing unnatural or something akin toa miracle.

It could be by an unexpected turn of events , help from an unexpected source or from a Stranger.

Then how come that even for those who have Faith, help does not arrive many a time?

The answer is your return is directly proportional to your investment , in this case , the intensity of Faith.

Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita that total, unconditional surrender would beckon Him.

In the Karna Mantra He states,

Sarva Dharman Parthyajyasya Maamekam Charanam Vraja,’

The correct meaning is,

for those who abandon all actions and seek Refuge in Me alone.

He did not come to the aid of Draupadi,also called Krishnai,who was being stripped in an open Hall, though she was crying out to Krishna , at the same time holding on to her clothes.

He came to her when she freed her hands , threw her hands up!

When Tirunavukkarasar( Tamil Saint), called Appar, was  thrown out into the sea with a stone tied around him, he sang,

சொற்றுணை வேதியன் சோதி வானவன் 
பொற்றுணைத் திருந்தடி பொருந்தக் கைதொழக் 
கற்றுணைப் பூட்டியோர் கடலிற் பாய்ச்சினும் 
நற்றுணை யாவது நமச்சி வாயவே. 				4.11.1  Thevaram. by Appar.


Even if you are thrown into the Ocean with a stone around you,

Nama Sivaya, the word of One, Who is,

The Protector of the Word, Vedas,

The Eternal Flame of the Heavens,

For those who worship His feet'

He, The Refuge ,Constant Companion.

This is Thirunavukkarasar's approach.

What does Abhirami Bhattar have to say on this?

'

அன்றே தடுத்து என்னை ஆண்டுகொண்டாய், கொண்டது அல்ல என்கை
நன்றே உனக்கு? இனி நான் என் செயினும் நடுக்கடலுள்
சென்றே விழினும், கரையேற்றுகை நின் திருவுளமோ.-
ஒன்றே, பல உருவே, அருவே, என் உமையவளே. Abhirami 30

அபிராமி அன்னையே! என் உமையவளே! நான் பாவங்களைச் செய்வதற்கு முன்பே என்னை தடுத்தாட் கொண்டவளே! நான் பாவங்களையே செய்தாலும், நடுக்கடலில் சென்று வீழ்ந்தாலும், அதனின்று காப்பது நின் கடைமையாகும். என்னை ஈடேற்ற முடியாது என்று சொன்னால் நன்றாகாது. இனி உன் திருவுளம்தான் என்னைக் கரை ஏற்ற வேண்டும் (பந்தபாசக் கடலில் இருந்து முக்திக் கரை ஏற்றுதல்). ஒன்றாகவும், பலவாகவும், விளங்குகின்ற என் உமையவளே!

Mother Abhirami,The One who appears as Many,

You have prevented me from committing Sins and taken over long back,

If I commit sins even now, and I fall in the deep ocean.

It is your Job to take care,

நன்றே வருகினும், தீதே விளைகினும், நான் அறிவது
ஒன்றேயும் இல்லை, உனக்கே பரம்: எனக்கு உள்ளம் எல்லாம்
அன்றே உனது என்று அளித்து விட்டேன்:- அழியாத குணக்
குன்றே, அருட்கடலே, இமவான் பெற்ற கோமளமே. Abhrami Andhadi 90

ஏ, அபிராமி! அழியாத குணக்குன்றே! அருட்கடலே! மலையரசன் பெற்றெடுத்த அழகிய கோமள வல்லியே! எனக்கு உரிமை என்று எப்பொருளும் இல்லை. அனைத்தையும் அன்றே உன்னுடையதாக்கி விட்டேன். இனி எனக்கு நல்லதே வந்தாலும், தீமையே விளைந்தாலும், அவற்றை உணராது விருப்பு, வெறுப்பற்றவனாவேன். இனி என்னை உனக்கே பரம் என்று ஆக்கினேன்.

Let auspiciousness strike me or that which is painful,

I have no idea nor I know of it,

It’s all yours,

For I have you given you all that is supposed to be Mine, including my Mind,

Laos Mountain Sixty Meter Linga Peak Linga Parvatha Vat Phou


We know that Thiruvannamalai is about a Billion old and Tirumala Tirupati is about 2100 Million Years old.

The Thiruvannamalai Hill is believed to be the Form of Linga, Agni Linga.

There is a Mountain in Laos with the Shiva Linga, 60 Meters, at its peak.

It is bathed by a Spring.

The water is carried by 632 Pipes.

Wat Phou peak Linga  Parvatha ,Laos.jpg The mountain has a natural linga on its peak. Image Credit. “Watphoupeaklinga03”. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons – https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Watphoupeaklinga03.jpg#/media/File:Watphoupeaklinga03.jpg

Vat Phou has been founded by the Cham, according to the historians and was later one of the first temples of the Khmers outside Cambodia. The oldest ruins date from the fifth and sixth century. Vat Phou nestles at the base of Mount Phou Pasak, that got the name Lingaparvata, because on top a 60 metres high monolith reaches into the sky. This natural outcropping has led the people to consider it a sacred place long ago. It resembles to linga of Shiva, the god of the Hindu. To some visitors it resembles also a female breast (see picture by Diane, taken on Don Daeng). “Parvata” means “mountain,” so “Lingaparvata” is literally “Linga Mountain.” It is the same word-root as “Parvati” the name of Shiva’s consort, a mountain-goddess, notes art-and-archaeology.com. Willard Van De Bogart tells the story of Lingaparvata, the story was also published with a lot of book references. Read also the official site description by the Museum of Vat Phu.

Linga Parvata.

n Laos, Lingaparvata became a focal point for austerities to Shiva in the fifth century under the vocable of Bhadresvara, the god of the Chams at My Hon-Son on the Champa (Vietnam) coast. The city of Kuruksetra and then later called Sreshthapura was the holiest ancient city for kings to make pilgrimage (tirtha yatra). In fact a 250 mile royal road runs from Angkor Wat directly to Vat Phu indicating there was a direct link to Vat Phu from the new Ankorean center.

There is a haunting living quality to Lingaparvata as it protrudes so uniquely into the sky almost as if some giant were pushing upward deep from within its rocky interior. From a distance Lingaparvata appears as a linga or even a small temple set on the summit where rituals to the gods would be performed. There is a Chinese document from the Sui dynasty (589-616CE) that mentions a temple on the summit of a mountain named Ling-kia-po-p’o, which is guarded by a thousand soldiers and consecrated to a spirit named Po-to-li. It was Georges Coedes, the famous French epigraphists, who transliterated Ling-po-p’o into Lingaparvata.

It is by all accounts a magical mystifying experience to witness this singular protuberance setting itself alone amongst the mountain tops behind Vat Phu and forever capturing the fascination and wonder of anyone who sets eyes on it.

Mt. Phu Kao immediately focuses your attention to the summit as no other small mountain can do. It’s as if in its own way the mountain is trying to announce something profound or waiting to direct the eyes of the beholder to look at something very special. The mountain commands one to look in its direction because none of the other hills are as unique. It is unique and different and holds its own as a singular presence like none of the other hills. Surely such a mountain would be thought of having supernatural powers and perhaps in order to even address those powers rites and rituals would have had to be conducted long before any consideration would be given to scale its summit.

Here was a mountain top that was so singular in its appearance that innately one sensed there was something being conducted on its rocky protrusion that only the mountain itself knew about. The absolute profundity and sanctity that the mountain has held over the millennia has finally reached its symbolic identity as the linga of Lord Shiva himself.

This was Shiva’s pillar of fire that endlessly went into the heavens and endlessly passed down through the earth. Here was the penultimate axis of the world and once the Brahmins from India saw this outcropping they could do none other than name this mountain Lingaparvata. This one linga would be impossible to move, and would provide the devotee with a substantive feeling of awe simply by recognizing the latent power of this mountain made it possible to communicate with the gods. It was on this mountain that the priests had developed the Cakravartin cosmology that in 400 years would establish the consecration of the Khmer Empire where Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma would be the gods that would establish divine kingship for another 500 years.

If Mt Kailash in Tibet is considered the home of Shiva and Arunachela is considered an actual manifestation of Shiva then I would offer that Lingaparvata could be thought of as the temple of Shiva whereby divine communication with all the gods would take place. My justification for making such a statement and associating Lingaparvata with a temple gateway to meet the gods is by recognizing that the Khmer Empire got its spiritual guidance from the environs of Kuruksetra. The combination of Vat Phu, Lingaparvata, the sacred spring and King Jayavarman IIÕs inscription at Vat Oubmong indicate an auspicious focal point that merits calling Lingaparvata a temple gate way to the gods. It was in 802CE that King Jayavarman II consecrated the Khmer Empire and he became the “Cakravatin” and established the union between god and king and the beginning of the “Devaraja” cult worship’

Champasak Wat Phou Spring water pipes.jpg Champasak Wat Phou Spring water being carried by pipes to bathe Shiva.

‘From Pakse, we first headed south 30 km, ferried across the Mekong River, cooled off over lunch at a riverside restaurant in Champasak town, then continued to the Khmer site of Wat Phu Champasak. Unlike the meticulously restored Phanom Rung site that we visited in Thailand, this one has a very atmospheric tumbled-down appearance. From a huge pond, a promenade flanked by stone lotus bud columns (most lying on the ground) leads to a pair of large rectangular worship pavilions, the most impressive buildings here due to their size and detailed carvings. The pathway continues west past a Nandi pavilion, now empty, and climbs past some guardian figures and a Ganesha to the main sanctuary. This structure of stone blocks has many detailed carvings of Hindu epics and gods. Originally it housed a Shiva lingam continually bathed in water from a nearby spring. Now it shelters several folksy Buddhas.

Siddhas Of North India Guru Parampara List


The title of this Post is a Misnomer in the sense that the Siddhas do not belong to any particular Region or Language.

I had provided the title to denote the Siddhas of the north of the Vindhyas(even here there are some from the South)

Generally the name Siddha is associated with the South, more specifically Tamil.

Sidhhas from the North seem to be following Patanjali, while in the south Agastya and Bhogar.

Agastya seems to have been the first after Lord Shiva.

One fact I have noticed is that Goraknath is found as a mentor of many a Siddhas from the North.

There is a Gorakka Nathar among the Siddhas in the South.

It is referred in Tamil texts that  there are 1008 Siddhas.

Many in the North are not aware of the Siddhas of the South and the South of the North.

This Post is to point out that all Siddhas belong to the Group of Realized Souls and we are not aware of it.

Following is a List of Siddhas from the North.

Atomic Analysis Report Of Palani Dhandayuthapani Subrahmanya


When the self-styled rationalists call every thing Hinduism stands for and Hindu sages as non sense and irrational , it is befitting to recall the words of Sir Isaac Newton, considered to be one of the Giants of Physics.

Palani Dhandayuthapani.gif Palani Dhandayuthapani , Moolavar,Palani.

‘ Sir Isaac Newton modestly remarked. “All that I have done to the human community is to make a common man understand His observable laws”. He added further by saying. “God created the forces of gravity. I connect this by a mathematical equation in an understandable way”.

How true these words are!

Palani Subrahmanaya, called as Palani Andavar, Palani Dhandayuthapani, Idol is believed to have been made and installed by Bhogar a senior Siddha.

He prepared the Idol, according to some traditions with a strange mixture called Nava Paashana.(Nine Poisonous Minerals)

This , the traditions say,was prepared by mixing minerals in a specific  proportion/combination.

Bhogar was also an Alchemist.

Paashaana also means Poison.

This mixture could have been prepared by mixing Nine rare herbs of poisonous nature .

The resultant mixture was used by Bhogar to make the Idol.

( It is believed that Bhogar made three idols, one is now at Palani, the other two have been hidden by Bhogar somewhere in the Eastern Ghats in South India: they are expected to surface at an appropriate time).

The other option for the Idol’s raw material is granite.

It has been observed that the Dhandayudhapani Idol at Palani became weak below the neck and the lower portions looked as if they would fall at any time.

A suggestion was mooted to repair or change the Idol.

This was not agreeable to the devotees as it would be against the Shastras.

So the Government of Tamil Nadu appointed a committee to study the issue and submit its recommendations.

I am providing the report afer a few sentences about the findings of the committee.

1.The Idol’s face was fresh as though it was installed recently.

2.The lower portions were damaged.

3.On testing with an Atomic Analyser, it was found that the Idol was made of neither Granite, nor minerals.

4.The Scienists were unable to determine what it is made of.

Now an abstract of the report; the web site Link is provided towards the close of the Post.

Dhandayuthapani Temple.jpg Dhandayuthapani Temple,Palani.

Though the preliminary visual examination of the idol revealed the possibility of the material being of granitic origin. It could not be confirmed, as neither a microscopic examination nor a chemical analysis could be done in the absence of loose material from the idol being available for such detailed investigation. But we were aware that the abhishekam materials flowing over the idol could possibly absorb some of the ingredients from the idol to acquire the medicinal property, curative qualities and offer relief to many devotees from their ailments.

Guided by this knowledge and taking a clue from this, we applied sandalwood paste to the idol and let it remain overnight. The next day the sandalwood paste was collected and a solution was prepared for further chemical examination, using
As the next step, the sandal wood paste solution from the paste left on the idol overnight was subjected to the experiment. The instrument showed no apparent reading. The experiment was repeated several times and the instrument showed a zero absorption. When other samples were tested, the instrument showed positive results but for the sandal wood paste left overnight on the idol of the lord, the result was zero absorption. It was revealed to us as a stupendous moral – that even modern scientific analysis cannot penetrate the Divine Structure.a sophisticated instrument, the Perkin-Elmer 707 atomic absorption spectrophotometer to identify the trace elements. A standard solution required for the experiment was made to calibrate the instrument.’

The Study was by Dr. Prof. M.S. Saravanan, M.Sc., Ph.D., F.M.S., F.G.S. is an an earth scientist and mineralogist and former Director of the Tamil Nadu Department of Geology & Mines and Chairman of Tamilnadu Minerals Limited and a one-time close associate of Kripananda Variar.

He was also a sub-committe member constituted by the Government of Tamil Nadu to Study and Test the Idol.

Now possessing a credit card is a status symbol.

Gold Loans.jpg

Gold Loans.

One who does not have it is looked down, even a shopkeeper looks down at you if you say you do not have a credit card!

I have seen people covering their heads before entering a Pawnshop to pledge.

Now we have advertisements exhorting people to avail Gold Loan!

…..The same pathetic situation with the Nations.

We had Argentina earlier,followed by Ireland, now Greece .

Nations have been humiliated.

All because of spending more than Income!

Economists(!) of the Keynesian variety might use any jargon like restructuring of Finances, Packages…….

What essentially has happened the borrower has been ridiculed, his very independence in peril.

Greece is a case in point.

No point in blaming the lender.

He is merely asking his money back

This is because people madly follow the US, by spending more than what they have,on imagined earnings/projected earnings.

US does not have enough God Reserves in Fort Knox to back up its debts.

Read my Posts on this.

No what does the ancient Language Tamil say of Credit, borrowings?

One who spends more that what he earns, ( gets a loan to meet out his expenses), will lose his dignity, lose his mind and will be considered by all as thief in whatever he goes.

He will be a sinner in all his births and will be called bad even by the Good , despite all his other good Characteristics.

What his mental would be, when he faces the creditors?

Kambar, the Great Tamil Poet, in his Ramayana, answers this.

Kambhar on Credit,Kambha Ramayan

Kambhar on Credit,Kambha Ramayana, Tamil.

‘Like a fish that has taken in poison; Like the wax near a hot flame; Like the toad that got caught between the venomous jaws of a snake; When the brave arrows of Lord Rama flew in the war field. Ravana’s feared and panicked as of the victim’s position in the above situations that can be compared to the person in a debt’

Hanuman Sheds Tears Bangalore, Govt. Blocks The Only Video


There was a comment for my Post Hanuman sheds Tears, Real Life Story in Facebook that the Idol of Lord Hanuman at Banswadi, a suburb of Bangalore sheds tears on Hanuman Jayanthi Day.

I sought information from the writer.

I did just that.

For the web search term ‘hanuman tears banaswadi’, I could get information.

This included the one from Bangalore Tourism .

But for Video search, the search returned with the only Video.

The catch is that the Video has been blocked by the Government Of India!

This is the search result.

Hanuman Uproots Shiva Linga Hanuman Pit Thirukkurankaval


Anjaneya, Hanuman is considered to be an Avatar of Shiva and some Purans mention Him as the Son of Lord Shiva.

Though Hanuman was an ardent Devotee of Lord Rama, He was a devotee of Shiva as well.

But there is an incident narrated in the Valmiki Ramayana, where Hanuman uprooted the Shiva Linga!

Hanuman Worships Shiva.png

Hanuman Worships Shiva.

Lord Rama, after the killing of Ravana, was advised to perform Prayaschitta, Atonement, for killing Ravana a Vedic scholar and a devotee of Shiva in Rameswaram, within two days from the date of killing Ravana.

Rama accordingly reached Rameswaram,while Hanuman and Jatayu were sent to search for A Shiva Linga

As they were delayed, Sita, asked by Rama , to. form a Shiva Linga out of sand , as the suspicious Muhurtha was about to end..

Sita did and at the same time Hanuman with the Linga was sighted.

Hanuman was upset that the Linga was not used by Sita .

Rama asked him to remove the Linga by the Sita so that Hanuman’s Linga could be installed,

Hanuman tried to uproot it, but finding the job tough, coiled His Tail around the Linga and uprooted it.

This fell few miles off Rameswaram and it is called Hanuman Pallam, Hanuman Pit.

In the process Hanuman’s tail was cut off.

Hanuman realized his folly and Rama advised him to perform Pooja for Shiva at Thirukkurankaval .

Hanuman did so..

Lord Hanuman realized his folly. It was pre-ordained that the lingam prepared by Lord Sita was to be used for the rituals and sought forgiveness from Lord Rama and Sita to regrow his tail.

Lord Rama suggested to Lord Hanuman that he seek forgiveness from Lord Shiva instead and suggested that Lord Hanuman visit Thirukurungaval and worship Lord Shiva there to get back his tail. Hence the place has acquired its name, Tirukurunkaval (Place where Lord Shiva was worshipped by a monkey-faced God) The testimony to this story is that it is one of the few Lord Shiva temples in the world, with a shrine to Lord Hanuman facing Lord Shiva.

It is also a metaphorical message that Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu (of which Lord Rama was an incarnation) are the same.

Thirukkurankukka/ Thirukkurankaval is one of the 275 Thevara Shivasthalam of Lord Shiva in Myladuthurai, Nagapattinam District, Tamil Nadu.  This is one of the 5 prominent temples of Lord Shiva ending its name with ‘Ka’ and they are: Thiruvanaikka, Thirukkodikka, Thirunellikka, Thirkolakka and Thirukkurankukka.

Tirupati – Tirumala 2100 Million Years Old ,Geology


Tirupati Balaji, Venkateswara is one of the most venerated Gods of Hinduism and the temple, in Chittoor District is visited by thousands of people everyday.

The Hindu Puranas speak of this temple as being quite old.

This Temple in the Tirupati/Tirumala Hills is and surrounded by  Hills which are prehistoric and the Hills have the world’s most ancient natural rock Archway.

Geologists have dated this and the information tallies with what Hindu Puranas say about the age of the Hills.

It is about 21oo Million years old.

Eparchaean Unconformity (Tirupati hills) is a major discontinuity of stratigraphic significance that represents a period of remarkable serenity in the geological history of the earth. It is seen at the steep natural slopes, road scars and ravines in the Tirupati – Tirumala Ghatroad in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh, India.[1][2]

In 2001, the Geological Survey of India (GSI) declared the unconformity to be one of the 26 “Geological Monuments of India”. GSI’s commemoration document, published on the occasion of the 150 years anniversary celebration, provides an insight into the formation of the subcontinent, the orogeny, the paleoenvironment and the exotic collection of paleo-flora and fauna. The details provided for the Eparchaean Unconformity monument indicate that this feature forms the boundary surface between Proterozoic Nagari Quartzites andArchaean granite. The time gap between the formation of the two units is at least 500 Ma.[2]

Naturak Archway Tirupati.jpg Natural Archway Tirupati, The assessed geological age of the rock arch is 2.5 billion years.

At this location, the boundary is between sedimentary rocks of the Cudappah Supergroup, 1600 million years in age, and Archaean rocks comprising granites, gneisses and dolerite dykes that are more than 2100 million years old. This unconformity gives an indication of the enormous time gap in the creation of the earth’s crust.

Tirupati Tirumala hilld.jpg

Tirupat Hills, Balaji TempleTirupati Tirumala

The Tirupati hills are situated at the foot of a range of hills known by several names, including ‘Seshachala’, ‘Venkatachala’ and ‘Balaji’. There are four geological units:

(1) Archaean rocks of the eastern Dharwar Craton (the granites and gneisses)
(2) the Eparchean unconformity (Quartzose sandstones overlying the granite with a distinct unconformity)
(3) Puranas (a general name for Proterozoic sedimentary sequences found in a series of basins deposited on the Indian Shield; including the Cuddapah Basin)[4]
(4) Quaternary deposits

The Tirumala hills essentially of precambrian period are composed of sedimentary rocksquartzites and intercalated shales, which are referred to as the Nagari quartzites, which forms part of the Cuddapah Supergroup. It is a subset of the Purana rock succession that rests above the archaean rocks.[2][3][5]

The hill ranges of the Tirumala rise to a height of 900 metres (3,000 ft) (at Tirumala) from the average height of 150 metres (490 ft) in the plains at Tirupati. The steep scarp of the ranges shows the Eparchian Unconformity’s topographic, structural and denudational features.[2][6] The sedimentary thickness of the Cudappah basin is of the order of 12 kilometres (7.5 mi), and includes volcanic sequences in the form of sills and dykes. A prominent Eparchaean Unconformity of the formation resting on the archaean peninsular gneissic complex is noted. Rocks of the Cuddapah Supergroup, and the overlying Kurnool Group, comprise the stratigraphic sequence of the basin. This feature is contiguous all along the defined Archaean-Cuddapah contact zone even though its age may vary along its traced path.[2][7]

Access

The location of the Geological Monument is well connected by road, rail and air routes. The nearest railhead to Tirumala hills is Tirupati. The geological monument is located 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) northwest of Tirupati town, at the 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) point on the Tirupati – Tirumala Ghat road. From Tirupati railway station the approach to the Tirumal temple is only by road, a distance of 10 kilometres (6.2 mi).[2][8] The nearest airport is located at Renigunta, about 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) away from the Tirupati city, which connects to Chennai, Hyderabad and Bangalore airports. Regular bus services (both private and government) are operated by all the states bordering Andhra Pradesh.

Known History of the temple as per records.

All the great dynasties of rulers of the southern peninsula have paid homage to Lord Sri Venkateswara in this ancient shrine. The Pallavas of Kancheepuram (9th century AD), the Cholas of Thanjavur (a century later), the Pandyas of Madurai, and the kings and chieftains of Vijayanagar (14th - 15th century AD) were devotees of the Lord and they competed with one another in endowing the temple with rich offerings and contributions. It was during the rule of the Vijayanagar dynasty that the contributions to the temple increased. Sri Krishnadevaraya had statues of himself and his consorts installed at the portals of the temple, and these statues can be seen to this day. There is also a statue of Venkatapati Raya in the main temple. After the decline of the Vijayanagar dynasty, nobles and chieftains from all parts of the country continued to pay their homage and offer gifts to the temple. The Maratha general, Raghoji Bhonsle, visited the temple and set up a permanent endowment for the conduct of worship in the temple. He also presented valuable jewels to the Lord, including a large emerald which is still preserved in a box named after the General. Among the later rulers who have endowed large amounts are the rulers of Mysore and Gadwal. After the fall of the Hindu kingdoms, the Muslim rulers of Karnataka and then the Britishers took over, and many of the temples came under their supervisory and protective control. In 1843 AD, the East India Company divested itself of the direct management of non-Christian places of worship and native religious institutions. The administration of the shrine of Sri Venkateswara and a number of estates were then entrusted to Sri Seva Dossji of the Hatiramji Mutt at Tirumala, and the temple remained under the administration of the Mahants for nearly a century, till 1933 AD. In 1933, the Madras Legislature passed a special act, which empowered the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams(TTD) Committee to control and administer a fixed group of temples in the Tirumala-Tirupati area, through a Commissioner appointed by the Government of Madras. In 1951, the Act of 1933 was replaced by an enactment whereby the administration of TTD was entrusted to a Board of Trustees, and an Executive Officer was appointed by the Government . The provisions of the Act of 1951 were retained by Charitable and Religious Endowments Act, 1966.

From The Puranas.
Sri Venkatachala Mahatmya is referred to in several Puranas, of which the most important are the Varaha Purana and the Bhavishyottara Purana. The printed work contains extracts from the Varaha Purana, Padma Purana, Garuda Purana, Brahmanda Purana, Markandeya Purana, Harivamsa, Vamana Purana, Brahma Purana, Brahmottara Purana, Aditya Purana, Skanda Purana and Bhavishyottara Purana. Most of these extracts describe the sanctity and antiquity of the hills around Tirumala and the numerous teerthams situated on them. The legends taken from the Venkatachala Mahatmya and the Varaha Purana, pertaining to the manifestation of the Lord at Tirumala, are of particular interest. According to the Varaha Purana, Adi Varaha manifested Himself on the western bank of the Swami Pushkarini, while Vishnu in the form of Venkateswara came to reside on the southern bank of the Swami Pushkarini. One day, Rangadasa, a staunch devotee of Vishnu, in the course of his pilgrimage, joined Vaikhanasa Gopinatha, who was going up the Tirumala Hill for the daily worship of Lord Venkateswara. After bathing in the Swami Pushkarini, he beheld the lotus-eyed and blue-bodied Vishnu beneath a tamarind tree. Vishnu was exposed to the sun, wind and rain and was only protected by the extended wings of Garuda. Rangadasa was astounded by the wonderful sight. He raised a rough wall of stones around the deity, and started supplying flowers faithfully to Gopinatha everyday for Vishnu's worship. One day, Rangadasa was distracted by a Gandharva king and his ladies. Consequently, he forgot to supply flowers to Gopinatha for Vishnu's worship. The Lord then revealed Himself and told Rangadasa that He had been testing the latter's continence, but Rangadasa had not been steadfast and had succumbed to temptation. However, the Lord accepted and appreciated Rangadasa's devoted service to Him till then, and blessed Rangadasa that he would be reborn as an affluent ruler of a province and would enjoy the earthly pleasures. He would continue to serve the Lord, construct a beautiful temple with a vimana and high surrounding walls, and thereby earn eternal glory. Rangadasa was reborn as Tondaman, the son of the royal couple, Suvira and Nandini. Tondaman enjoyed a pleasurable life as a young man. One day, he set out on a hunting expedition on the Tirumala Hill, and with the help of a forester, saw Vishnu under the tamarind tree. Tondaman returned home, deeply affected by the vision of Vishnu. Tondaman later inherited his father's kingdom, Tondamandalam. In accordance with the directions given by Adi Varaha to a forester, Tondaman constructed a prakaram and dvara gopura, and arranged for regular worship of the Lord (according to Vaikhanasa Agama). In the Kali Yuga, Akasaraja came to rule over Tondamandalam. His daughter Padmavathi was married to Venkateswara. The marriage, officiated by Brahma, was celebrated with great pomp and splendour.

Tirumala-Tirupati :-

    The town of Tirupati is one of the most ancient and spectacular places of pilgrimage in India. It is situated in the Chittoor district in southern Andhra Pradesh. The town owes its existence to the sacred temple of Lord Sri Venkateswara situated on the Tirumala Hill adjoining it. With a history that dates back to over twelve centuries, the temple is the jewel in the crown of ancient places of worship in southern India.

The Tirumala Hill is 3200 ft above sea level, and is about 10.33 sq miles in area. It comprises seven peaks, representing the seven hoods of Adisesha, thus earning the name, Seshachalam. The seven peaks are called Seshadri, Neeladri, Garudadri, Anjanadri, Vrishabhadri, Narayanadri and Venkatadri.

    The sacred temple of Sri Venkateswara is located on the seventh peak, Venkatadri (Venkata Hill), and lies on the southern banks of Sri Swami Pushkarini. There are several legends associated with the manifestation of the Lord in Tirumala.

Sanatana Dharma Brahmins of Australia


The spread of Santana Dharma and its people throughout te world is proven by Archeological finds, Astronomy,Cultural similarities, Etymological similarities between Sanskrit ,Tamil and the languages of the world and now DNA.

I have been writing on this for quite some time with authentic sources.

Brahmins of Australia ,Transcript of a newspaper article.jpg Brahmins of Australia ,Transcript of a newspaper article 13 September 1947.The Morning Tribune

The land mass we know of the world was not the same before thousands of years and the Sanatana Dharma dates more than thousands of years.

The remains of the Sanatana Dharma is found around the world so also the traces of the Communities of India, then called Bharatavarsha.

Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaisyas and Sudras of the Vedic period migrated and their lineage ids found even now in all parts of the world.

In Sri Lanka, Burma, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Korea,Japan,China, Middle east, Europe, Russia, Arctic, Africa, Latin America, Central America,, US, New Zealand and Australia.

A study has shown that people migrated from India to Australia. (AP).jpg A study has shown that people migrated from India to Australia. (AP)

Read my posts on each of these.

Now there is evidence that the Brahmins of the Vedic period were a part of the group that migrated to Australia and their traces are found in Australia.

The 1947 Report by the Secretary of the Australian labour party that the racial purity of the Brahmins will be preserved in Australia confirms the Brahmin presence in Australia.

And the DNA evidence is provided below.

Sydney – People from the Indian sub-continent migrated to Australia and mixed with Aborigines 4 000 years ago, bringing the dingo dog with them, according to a study published on Tuesday.

The continent was thought to have been isolated from other populations until Europeans landed at the end of the 1700s.

But researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, reported “evidence of substantial gene flow between Indian populations and Australia about 4 000 years ago”.

They analysed genetic variation from across the genome from Australian Aborigines, New Guineans, Southeast Asians, and Indians.

“Long before Europeans settled in Australia humans had migrated from the Indian subcontinent to Australia and mixed with Australian Aborigines,” the study said.

It found “substantial gene flow from India to Australia 4 230 years ago i e… well before European contact”, it said.

“Interestingly, this date also coincides with many changes in the archaeological record of Australia, which include a sudden change in plant processing and stone tool technologies… and the first appearance of the dingo in the fossil record,” said researcher Irina Pugach.

“Since we detect inflow of genes from India into Australia at around the same time, it is likely that these changes were related to this migration,” she added.

Ancient Brahmin Village in Bali Banjar Saren Jawa


I am researching into the presence of Indian communities, the Varnas, loosely and incorrectly translated as Caste today around the world.

The fact that Rama’s Kingdom extended throughout the world, Sugreeve directing his army in search of Sita. to all parts of the world by geographical references with annotation to Hindu sounding names,Krishna’s son Pradhyumna had a city built-in Russia, Lahore being founded by Rama’s son Lava, , Korean Queen from Ayodhya….and more references made me curious.

And there is Chatur varna in Bali!

Banjar Saren Jawa, Bali.jpg Banjar Saren Jawa, Bali. Brahmin Village

Now I find that there is an ancient Brahmin Village in Bali, Banjar Saren Jawa.

It is interesting to note that Muslims there send special food, sans Meat for Hindu Festivals,which is reciprocated by the Brahmins.

I have a post where I had mentioned that a student of my father, who later became Inspector of Schools used to get food from my home when he was on tour to my native city.9 Post ‘Where have these Muslims Gone?)

Banjar Saren Jawa.

‘Residents of the Muslim-majority neighborhood of Saren Jawa in Karangasem started Idul Fitri by sending gifts of hot meals and traditional cakes to their Hindu neighbors.

Saren Jawa, a collection of 125 households, is part of Budakeling,  an ancient Brahmin village with a Hindu majority that is also home to some of the island’s most revered Buddhists priests and literary figures well versed in Kawi and ancient texts.

Sending gifts of food to observe religious festivals is an old tradition for Budakeling’s Muslims and
Hindus.

Local Hindus send similar gifts to Muslim neighbors when celebrating Hindu festivals.

They even cook a special pork-free version of lawar (spicy shredded vegetables with minced meat) called lawar selam. The word selam is derived from Islam, residents said.

The tradition underlines centuries of harmony shared by Bali’s Muslims and Hindus.

After performing Shalat Ied, Saren Jawa villagers gathered at noon at the mosque for a megibung, or communal feast — another Hindu tradition adopted by the Muslims.  The residents were resplendent in Muslim attire and spoke in Alus, the most polite form of Balinese.

Ketut Syukur Yahya and Komang Thoyib sat in a corner of the mosque. The youths have Balinese surnames and Muslim family names.

“We are very proud of our names because they highlight the fact that we are Muslims and also Balinese,” Wayan Lukman Hakim said.

A similar tradition combining Balinese and Muslim names also exists in Pegayaman, an ancient Muslim village in Buleleng.

“Our old mosque has a seven-tiered roof which resembled the Balinese Hindus’ Meru shrine. Our ancestors and elders left behind rituals and traditions that strengthened our emotional bond with our Hindu brothers and sisters,” he added.

Other youths nodded in agreement and in turn described their experiences with that emotional bond. They said they were optimistic that harmonious relations could continue long into the future.

Ketut Syukur told The Jakarta Post of a unique tradition observed during Maulud, the celebration of Muhammad’s birthday celebration, which involved both Muslims and Hindus.

“We built a stage on which Muslims and Hindus youths performed dances and music to honor the Prophet,” Ketut Syukur said.

Hindus offer a similar gesture of respect, he said. Saren Jawa’s elders are invited to attend Budakeling’s major religious Hindu ceremonies and temple festivals — and are also asked to give their prayers and blessing, he said. .

..

For hundreds of years, a tiny village in Budakeling, Karangasem, has been a model of religious tolerance and acculturation between Hindus and Muslims.

Home to 100 families, the village is known as Banjar Saren Jawa, with “banjar” referring to a traditional Balinese neighborhood association.

Saren Jawa is surrounded by Balinese banjar like Triwangsa, Saren Kauh and Dukuh, all populated by Balinese Hindus following the Siwa-Buda belief system, an amalgamation of Hinduism and Mahayana Buddhist teachings.

Budakeling is an important site for Mahayana Buddhism in Bali as it was brought to Budakeling by Danghyang Astapaka during the reign of Bali’s most illustrious king, Dalem Waturenggong (1458-1550).

Astapaka was the nephew of Danghyang Nirartha, who was Waturenggong’s spiritual guru and the most influential Siwa high priest at the time.

Nirartha was the founder of the blood lineage of the island’s influential brahmana siwa clan, which gives the island most of its Siwa high priests, while Astapaka was the founder of the brahmana buda clan, which gives the island most of its Buda high priests.

Any major Balinese Hindu sacrificial ritual requires the presence of high priests from both clans.

Saren Jawa chief I Ketut Ayu Mudin SAR said the Muslim community in the area began with Raden Kyai Abdul Jalil from Java who visited the Gelgel kingdom in Klungkung and killed a rampaging rhinoceros that had killed many people.

Hinduism On Normal Supra and Para Normal


I saw a thread in Facebook community on Ghosts, haunted houses and the topic veered around to paranormal and landed in Hinduism/Indian Philosophy.

What does Hinduism, Sanatana Dharma say on this?

Other religions talk of walking on water, Red Sea Parting, curing the diseased, making the dead come alive as Miracles and they are described as manifestations of God.

Santana Dharma, The Epics, Ramayana, Mahabharata and the Puranas have innumerable instances which are beyond these described above.

Virata Rupa Vishnu.gif Virata Rupa Vishnu.

We have instances of a Rishi being born out of a vessel,(Agastya), Weapon made of the back bone of a Rishi, Dadisi’s backbone was used to create the Vajrayudha of Indra,Hanuman crossing the ocean by flying over it, three flying cities, Viswaroopa of Krishna in the Mahabharata.

In none of these instances the term miracle is used nor were the instances considered as something unbelievable.

The terms used were , Aascharya,(wonder) Arbhudha(wonder to behold)and utmost the term Avaktavyam(Indescribable.)

When Indrajit was revived by the Sanjeevi Parvatha brought by Anjaneya, the term miracle is used in the sense that an imossible feat has been done.

Another term used in these contexts is Asaadhya, that which is normally not possible, the operative word here being ‘normal’

Reason is , for Hinduism everything is natural and normal and nothing is Para or Supra Normal and there is no miracle.

Nothing is a Miracle for people whose Time scale extends to thousands of years ,(Read My post on Time),where there are Chiranjeevis or Immortals or where even God once born is meant to die!

The outlook is determined by Indian Philosophy.

Hinduism regards the whole Universe as an expression of Reality as being perceived by us.

Perceptions may differ but the perceived remains the same.

The Reality Brahman is a Principle, without Attributes and at the same time with Attributes depending on one’s mental make up.(Please read my Post on Hinduism on God with Forms Yes and No).

The Reality is seen from the perspective of the Perceiver.

Due to  ignorance we do not perceive things as they are but as what they seem to us.

This can be seen in daily Life when things which were a cause of wonderment to us when we were children do not seem to be so when we have grown up.

Once we know or perceive things differently the sense of wonder disappears.

Everything is normal.

The Jains have developed a beautiful Logical System called Sapthabanghi Naya, the Seven ways of predication or the seven ways a thing can be described.

Please read my Post on Sapthabhangi naya.

A thing,

Is,exists(Asti)

Is not, does not exist, for one who is not aware of it or not in its presence,(Nasti)

Is indescribale, Avaktavya ( Indescribable),

Is and Is not (Asti and Nasthi)

A thing Is from the perspective of Onw who is aware of it and Is not from that of one who is not aware.

Asthi and Avaktavya, A thing Is and it Is indescribable from the perspective one who does not know about It(Is and Indescribable)

Nasthi and Avatavya-A Thing Is not and indescribable, based on similar logic.(Is Not and Indescribable)

Asthi, Nasthi, Avattavya( Is, Is not and Indescribable)

A thing Is , Is Not and indescribable at the same time-based on the same Logic.

So in Hinduism Nothing is a Miracle, Para Normal or Supra Normal.

We have Rishis and Siddhas who transcend Time and Space, assume minute forms ‘Take huge forms, enter into a dead body..

There are eight feats on these lines.

Read my Post.

Depends on one’s perspective and the level of Knowledge.

But Hinduism draws a Line.

There is no alternative to death, once born, even if one is God!

Ramanis Prayer Portal


I have received quite a few emails over the last few days as to why I have not posted any new post.

Nor have I replied the comments on this site.

Ganapathy.Image.jpg

Lord Ganesha

Usually I reply the  comments immediately.

The reason why I did not post a new article is that my daughter met with a serious accident, which has resulted in the Fracture of Four vertebrae , three rib bones and two bones in the Face.

Thanks to the Prayers of well wishers no harm to her internal organs ike Brain, Lungs or spinal cord.

Though slight puncture of the Lung is noticed it is not a cause for concern.

However she is to undergo two surgical procedures  the next Wednesday/Thursday for fractures in the face and Jaw.

On seeing the visuals of the accident I was shocked at the seriousness of the accident.

I was convinced that Prayers only could save her and I shared the information on Facebook requesting people to Pray for Her.

I was astounded at the response from the people offering prayers, messages encouraging me to be brave, offers of Medicines from India ,US, medical advice from Doctors,Blood offers , special vows from people on behalf of my daughter!

I have lost count of the messages pouring in.

I think it must have crossed the 7000 mark.

Such a spontaneous gesture from people one does not even know moved me.

Rama Date One Million Years Ago Gomphotheriidae Elephant Proof


Knowledge , in my opinion, is, jumping from one uncertainty to another.

The consoling factor is that the latest information is less uncertain than the earlier one.

( Hindu Texts say Knowledge is nothing but removal of ignorance, by stages)

Planetary Alignment At The Time of Rama’s Birth.

Lord Rama’s Date has been determined by various tools.

Please read my posts  on Dating Tools of Ramayana, Mahabharata.

Some of them are,

Literary, both Indian and Foreign.

Etymology from Sanskrit and Tamil.

Cultural behaviour.

Archeology.

Astronomy.

Each one of these has its strength and weaknesses.

When we speak of archeology, it has to be borne in mind that when one digs he hits the top available layer of the site.

If the events had taken place over thousands of years, then the layers one finds may not reflect them as we would have it the first layer available, because the deposits of the earth would have covered the earlier ones.

In the case of Astronomy, by far the best tool, which none can tamper-with, has its peculiar problem.

Planetary Alignment at the Time of Rama's Birth..Image.jpg

Planetary Alignment at the Time of Rama’s Birth.

When one dates with the help of Astronomy, one must remember that astronomical events repeat themselves at regular intervals.

Which one has to be taken into account ?

The issue is very much relevant in dating the Indian Puranas and Ithihasa.

They cover vast stretches of Time.

Lord Rama Has been dated at 5114 BC.

Please read my Post.

But the event verified by planetary  positions indicate, as I observed earlier, that there have been similar Planetary configurations.

So to determine the date, one has to seek the help of the other tools.

In this case, it is Valmiki’s Ramayana.

In the Valmiki Ramayana, Sundara-Kanda (or Book 5), Chapter 4, verse 27, [Gita Press, Gorakhpur, India] it explains that when Hanuman first approached Ravana’s palace, he saw the doorways surrounded by horses and chariots, palanquins and aerial cars, beautiful horses and elephants, nay, with four-tusked elephants decked with jewels resembling masses of white clouds.

Elsewhere in the Valmiki Ramayana, Sundara-Kanda (or Book 5), Chapter 27, verses12, an ogress named Trijata has a dream of Lord Rama, which she describes to the other demoniac ogresses upon awakening. In that dream she sees Rama, scion of Raghu, united again with Sita. Sri Rama was mounted on a huge elephant, closely resembling a hill, with four tusks.

(The question is how could there be a mention of the elephants with four tusks unless Valmiki and the people of his era were familiar with such creatures? A quick search on the Encarta Encyclopedia will let us know that these four-tusked elephants were known as Mastodontoidea, which are said to have evolved around 38 million years ago and became extinct about 15 million years ago when the shaggy and two tusked Mastodons increased in population.”)

Valmiki does not lie.

His facts check out in Geographical descriptions and astronomical events.

Wherever he has used Hyperbole, it is easily distinguishable.

Those  who know Sanskrit know how to identify them.

(Sundara Kanda Sarga 27 , Verse 12)

Now  History of Biology proves that,

“The Gomphotheriidae were a diverse taxonomic family of extinct elephant-like animals (proboscideans). Referred to as gomphotheres, they were widespread in North America during the Miocene and Pliocene epochs, 12–1.6 million years ago. Some lived in parts of Eurasia,Beringia and, following the Great American Interchange, South America. Beginning about 5 million years ago, they were gradually replaced by modern elephants, but the last two South American species, in the genus Cuvieronius, did not finally become extinct until possibly as recently as 9,100 BP, and Stegomastodon remains have been dated as recently as 6,060 BP in the Valle del Magdalena, Colombia. Gomphotheres also survived in Mexico and Central America until the end of the Pleistocene

Ramayana took place in the Treta Yuga, according to Valmiki and other Puranas.

Treta  Yuga was about ,

“The duration of the Tretā-yuga is 3,600 x 360, or 1,296,000 years. The duration of the Dvāpara-yuga is 2,400 x 360, or 864,000 years. And the last, the Kali-yuga, is 1,200 x 360, or 432,000 years in total.” (Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.11.19) . These 4 yugas follow a timeline ratio of (4:3:2:1).

That’s about a Million Years ago.

(Please read my Post Million Year Old Tamil Quotes Vedas)

Hence the astronomical calculation being cited to date Rama at 5114 BC can be revised to the same astronomical Event around one Million ago.

So Lord Rama can be dated around One Million years ago, considering this evidence and the dates of Dwaraka(Dated 32 000 years ago), the earliest dwelling Tamil Site in Chennai which is a Million Years old.( and Tamil quotes Ramayana)

Hindu Kings Of Iraq Turkey Syria Lebanon Egypt Italy Mitanni Empire


I have written about the Mitanni People and the Mitanni Empire.

The Mitanni Empire covered what is now known as Iraq, Turkey Syria, Lebanon,Egypt and included Italy.

They were the ancestors of these people.

Mitanni were the ancestors of the Egyptians as well.

Mittani Empire.png Mittani Empire. “Near East 1400 BCE” by User:Javierfv1212 – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Near_East_1400_BCE.png. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons – http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Near_East_1400_BCE.png#/media/File:Near_East_1400_BCE.png

 

‘These Kings and even a Roman Emperor sported Thiruman, The Vaishnavite marks on their Body.

 

The Sun King Akhenaten of Egypt who ruled between 1352-1336 BC was a son-in-law of Tushratta, the Mitanni king. The name Tushratta has been recorded in the Hittite cuneiform script.

 

Some have suggested that the Sanskrit origin of Tushratta is Dasaratha, a few others that it is Tvesaratha (having splendid chariots), a name which is attested in the Rigveda.

“The first Mitanni king was Sutarna I (good sun). He was followed by Baratarna I (or Paratarna great sun), Parasuksatra(ruler with axe),…. Saustatar (Sauksatra, son of Suksatra, the good ruler), Artadama (abiding in cosmic law)..Tushratta (Dasaratha), and finally Matiwazza (Mativaja, whose wealth is thought) during whose lifetime the Mitanni state appears to have become a vassal to Assyria”. Subhash Kak traces the ‘arna’ syllable in the names of the kings to ‘araNi’ (अरणि) meaning ‘sun’…

(Akhenaten, Surya, and the Rigveda’, Prof Subhash Kak (an Indian American computer scientist, previous Head of Computer Science Department, Oklahoma State University)

A number of Indo-European sounding words have been identified in the cuneiform documents of the Mitanni kingdom (1500-1200 BC). In addition to nouns and adjectives with parallels in Sanskrit this Hurrian speaking kingdom had kings with Indo-Aryan names and two documents even list the main Gods of the Indian pantheon….”

 

The kingdom of the Mitanni Indo-Iranian dynasty that ruled in the land of the Hurrians was in the upper Euphrates-Tigris basin – land that is now part of northern Iraq, Syria and south-eastern Turkey.

At its greatest extent (for a brief period at the height of its dynastic power), Mitanni territory extended to the Mediterranean coast and into northern Assyria / Mesopotamia, it’s south-eastern neighbour.

Mitanni’s north-western border with theHattian kingdom of the Hittites was fluid and constantly subject to aggression except when the two rivals concluded a peace treaty – one that invoked the Indo-Iranian pantheon of Mitra, Varuna, Indra and the Nasatyas – but also one that marked the decline of the Mitanni kingdom and a decrease in size. The Mitanni and Hittites were closely related. The Hittites used the Hurrian language extensively in their inscriptions. They also shared in the development of the light chariot whose wheels used spokes .

The Hurrian lands are today a part of Greater Kurdistan….

 

Despite Tusratta’s problems, he was not beyond offering his daughter Tadukhipa in marriage to the King Amenhotep III of Egypt for a large quantity of gold. The tablet seen to the right is a letter from Tusratta to Amenhotep in which he asks for “gold in very great quantity” as a bride price, supporting his request with the comment, “Gold is as dust in the land of my brother.”

The beleaguered Tusratta was then murdered by his son in a palace coup. Tusratta’s other son, Prince Shattiwaza, fled Mitanni and was eventually given sanctuary by the Hittite King Suppiluliuma with whom he concluded a treaty c. 1380 BCE, which we know as the Suppiluliuma-Shattiwaza Treaty (discovered in 1907 CE in Hattusa, near present-day Bogazkale(Boğazkale, formerly Bogazköy) in north-central Turkey. In the treaty, the Hittite King Suppiluliuma agreed to assist Shattiwaza gain the Mitanni throne and invaded Mitanni. The Hittites captured the Mitanni capital Wassukanni after a second attempt and installed Shattiwaza as a vassal king.

The Suppiluliuma-Shattiwaza Treaty is a source of considerable information about the Mitanni. In addition, it gives us some astonishing information about the religious practices of the Mitanni for it invokes the Indo-Iranian pantheon of asuras and devas Mitras(il) (Mitra), Uruvanass(il) (Varuna), Indara (Indra) and theNasatianna (Nasatyas) (Ashwins).

Following the capture of Wassukanni, the Hittites installed new rulers in Mitanni towns while the Assyrians regained control of the territory they had lost to the Mitanni. Tusratta was killed and his son Shattiwaza became a vassal of the Hittite Suppiluliuma (c.1344 – 1322 BCE). At the same time, the rebellious Artatama became a puppet king of a reborn Assyria, led by king Assur-Uballit I (1364-1328 BCE). Wassukanni was sacked again by the Assyrian king Adad-Nirari I around 1290 BCE, after which very little is known of its history.

In our page on the Hittites, we note:
“In the Bogazkale archives, native Hurrian is used frequently for a wide range of non-official texts such as those on rituals and even the Epic of Gilgamesh – more so than native Hattian. Native Hurrian texts have been found throughout the region. One such text dated to 1750 BCE was found at Tell Hariri (ancient Mari), a Middle Euphrates site, and another at Ras Shamra (Ugarit) on the Syrian coast indicating Hurrian i.e. Mitanni influence in the region preceded the rise of Hittite power. A similar language to Hurrian is the language of Urartu located to the west of the Hittite lands at the headwaters of the Euphrates and around Lake Van. According to the literature (cf. The Hittites by O. R. Gurney, Penguin Books 1981), The Hurrians were migrants to the Upper Euphrates and Habur basin from the Elburz Mountains east across the Taurus Mountains from about 2300 BCE onwards.”

The Mitanni name for chariot warriors was maryanna or marijannina, a form of the Indo-Iranian term marya meaning ‘young man,” used in the Rig Veda when referring to the celestial warriors assembled around the Vedic deity Indra.The Mitanni were famed charioteers. They are reported to have spearheaded the development of the light war chariot with wheels that used spokes rather than solid wood wheels like those used by the Sumerians.

Tushratta's letter to Amenhotep III of Egypt Amarna from Tell el-Amarna. Housed at British Museum WAA 29791.jpg Tushratta’s letter to Amenhotep III of Egypt Amarna from Tell el-Amarna. Housed at British Museum WAA 29791
The Hittite archives of Hattusa, near present-day Bogazkale contained what is the oldest surviving horse training manual in the world. The elaborate work was written c. 1345 BCE on four tablets and contains 1080 lines by a Mitanni horse trainer named Kikkuli. It begins with the words, “Thus speaks Kikkuli, master horse trainer of the land of Mitanni” and uses various Indo-Iranian words for horse colours, numbers and names. Examples are:

assussanni a form of the Sanskrit asva-sani meaning ‘horse trainer’,
aika wartanna meaning one turn (cf. Vedic Sanskrit ek vartanam),
tera wartanna meaning three turns (cf. Vedic Sanskrit tri vartanam),
panza wartanna meaning five turns (cf. Vedic Sanskrit panca vartanam),
satta wartanna meaning seven turns (cf. Vedic Sanskrit sapta vartanam), and
navartanna meaning nine turns (cf. Vedic Sanskrit nava vartanam).
[Regrettably, writers do not mention the Old Iranian equivalents.]

A Hurrian text from Yorgan Tepe also uses Indo-Iranian words to describe the colour of horses, words such as babru for brown, parita for grey, and pinkara for a reddish hue.

The Kikkuli manual for training chariot horses highlights the links between the Mitanni and Hittites. Even though they were rivals at times, the two groups also collaborated frequently. The fact that the Hittites employed a Mitanni as a master trainer of horses may indicate that it was the Mitanni who were the regional experts in horse training especially for military purposes (in a manner similar to the Sogdians in the East) and that the Mitanni in turn had brought the expertise with them in their migration westward.

The methods used in the Kikkuli method enabled horses to be trained without injury. The text detailed a 214-day training regime using interval training and sports medicine techniques such as the principle of progression, peak loading systems, electrolyte replacement, fartlek training, intervals and repetitions and was directed at horses with a high proportion of slow-twitch muscle fibres. the Kikkuli horses were stabled, rugged, washed down with warm water and fed oats, barley and hay at least three times per day.

Kikkuli’s interval training technique stressed the leading of horses at a trot, canter and gallop, before subjecting them to the weight bearing stress of a rider, driver or chariot. Workouts sometimes numbered three a day with scheduled rest days. Kikkuli’s interval training contained three stages – the first two for developing strong legs and a strong cardio-muscular system, and the third for increasing neuromuscular conditioning. His workouts included brief recoveries to lower the heart rate. Swimming was also included in intervals of three to five sessions, with rest periods after each session. The horses were also subject to warming down periods and the method’s example of cantering included intermediate pauses to lower the heart rate partially and as the training advanced the workouts included intervals at the canter.

Mitanni Indo-Iranian Names

The names of the Mitanni kings and their capital city were of Indo-Iranian origin. For instance, Tueratta was a form of the Indo-Iranian Tvesa-ratha meaning ‘Possessor of a Chariot’. The name S’attuara was a form of Satvarmeaning ‘warrior’ and the name of the Mitanni capital Wassukanni, was a form of Vasu-khani meaning ‘wealth-mine’.

The names of proto-Indo-Iranian dieties are also found to form the names of the Kassite rulers of Babylonia.

Arta

Several Mitanni names contained the Old Persian term arta, a derivative of asha via arsha, meaning cosmic order and truth (arta transforms to the Sanskrit r’ta). Arta is found used in Old Persian Achaemenian names (e.g. Artakhshassa c.450 BCE) and in the Sogdian Avesta as well. Asha is the central ethical concept of the Avesta.

Philologists trace the Mitanni names to the Vedic equivalents. For instance, they note that the royal name Artatama was a form of the Indo-Iranian R’ta-dhaanman meaning ‘the abode of rta’, and the name Artas’s’umara was a form of Rta-smara meaning ‘remembering r’ta’.

However, for some reason, none of the writers that we have come across link the name to their Old Iranian or Old Persian equivalents – equivalents that will be closer to the Mitanni names as we have demonstrated with the use of arta above.

Indra In Incas Peru Viracocha Ramayana, Upanishad


Viracocha of South America tradition, is the great creator deity in the pre-Inca and Inca mythology in the Andes region of South America. Full name and some spelling alternatives are Wiracocha.

Viracocha god of Incas.Image,jpg

Viracocha, of Incas.
Image credit.wiki.

Tiqsi Huiracocha may have several meanings. In the Quechua language tiqsi means foundation or base, wira means fat, and qucha means lake, sea, or reservoir.Viracocha’s many epithets include great, all knowing, powerful, etc. Wiraqucha could mean “Fat (or foam) of the sea”.

The name is also interpreted as a celebration of body fat (Sea of fat), which has a long pre-Hispanic tradition in the Andes region as it is natural for the peasant rural poor to view fleshiness and excess body fat as the very sign of life, good health, strength, and beauty.

Another interpretation of the word is ‘The word ‘Vira’ (वीर) means ‘brave, heroic, powerful, strong’. ‘Kocha’ (कोच) means a ‘man of Mixed Ancestry.

He reminds of Indra,the Chief of Devas.

Like Indra Viracocha wields Thunderbolt and the chief Deity among the Incas, pre-Inca Pantheon.

According to Puranas Indra and Virochana both studied under Prajapathi.

While Indra advocated the worship of the Atman, The Self as the goal of Life, Virochana worshiped Sarira, the Human Body.

Hence he was not considered as a Deva in Sanatna Dharma, though his story is narrated in the Puranas and the Ramayana.

In the Valmiki Ramayan of India, Virochana (Sanskrit: विरोचन), was the first great Asura king with supernatural powers. (Asuras were power seeking deities). The Upanishads say that Virochana and Lord Indra together were taught at the feet of Prajapati. However, contrary to what he was taught, Virochana preached the Asuras to worship the ‘sharira’ (body) instead of the ‘atman’ (absolute consciousness)…

Scholars say today, the megaliths of South America, such as the Temple of ‘Kalasasaya’ (which houses an idol of Viracocha) in Bolivia, could not have been made without alien help.

Investigations in Assyrian mythology prove the existence of a tradition in Assyrian history of such a king called Berosus – a distortion of Virochana and Viracocha – as it has often been reiterated ‘b’ and ‘v’ are commutable. According to Swami Vivekananda “the western nations are the children of the great hero Virochana.” (Source: Talks with Vivekananda: Publisher- Advaita Ashram, Mayavati, Himalayas, January 1939.)’

I have posted about the origin of the Incas as being the Tamils of India.

The Incas celebrated the Makara Sankaranti in the South Indian Style.

‘Most of you in India are familiar with the Charak Puja ceremonial observed in Bengal and several States in South India. This Hindu Ceremonial also observed in Mexicohistorian call it the mexicon and peru. The Spanish Valador ritual. A relief of Bayon central temple of Angkor Thom inCambodia represents a rite similar to the Mexico Valador. The use of parasol (Chhatra) is an age-old sign of royalty and rank in India, Burma, China and Japan. The Maya Astec and the Incas also used it as a sign of royalty. Frescoes of Chak Multum in Yucatan show two types of parasols both of which correspond to types still in use in South-East Asia.’

Incas celebrated it as “Inti Raymi”

Makara Sankaranthi in Peru

E635 : Sodium ribonucleotides

Origin:
Mixture of sodium salts of guanylic (E626) and inosinic acid (E630).Function & Characteristics:
Flavour enhancer. Guanylates and inosinates do not have the specific umami taste but strongly enhance many other flavours, thereby reducing the amounts of salt or other flavour enhancers needed in a product.

Products:
Used in many products. Mainly used in low sodium/salt products.

Acceptable daily intake (ADI):
None determined. Guanylates and inosinates may not be used in products intended for children under 12 weeks.

Side effects:
Asthmatic people should avoid guanylates and inosinates. As guanylates and inosinates are metabolised to purines, they should be avoided by people suffering from gout. However, the concentrations used are generally so low that no effects are to be expected.

Dietary restrictions:
Guanylates and inosinates are generally produced from meat, but partly also from fish. They are thus not suitable for vegans and vegetarians, and in most cases not suitable for Jews, Muslims and Hindus, depending on the origin of the product. Only the producer can provide information on the origin.”

Beware Maggi Lovers : Cooking Maggi Noodles in wrong way is very dangerous for health.

There is a certain way to cook maggi. You may be thinking whats new in this but the cooking process which is shown behind the packet maybe right but it is surely harmful to your body because maggi noodles are coated with Wax which harms us and takes 3 to 4 days to excrete the wax which is harmful. The ingredient called Msg can make you fat and fat people kknow how much difficult it is to loose their weight. Maggi should not be given to young children as they are also harmful to them.

Normally, how we cook the instant noodles is to put the noodles into a pot with water, throw in the powder and let it cook for around 3 minutes and then it’s ready to eat. This is the WRONG way and dangerous method of cooking the instant noodles like Maggi. By doing this, when we actually boil the ingredients in the powder,normally with MSG, it will change the molecular structure of the MSG, causing it to be toxic. The other thing that you may or may not realize is that, the noodles are coated with wax and it will take around 4 to 5 days for the body to excrete the wax after you have eaten the noodles.

CORRECT METHOD OF COOKING MAGGI:

The correct way to cook instant noodles without harming our bodies and health is
1. Boil the noodles in a pot of water.
2. Once the noodles are cooked, take out the noodles, and throw away the water which contains wax.
3. Boil another pot of water, add the cooked noodles into the hot boiling water and then turn off the stove.
4. Only at this stage when the stove is off, and while the water is very hot, add the flavouring powder into the water, to make noodle soup.
5. However, if you need dry noodles, remove the noodles and add the flavoring powder and toss it to get dry noodles.

2. Maggi is non vegetarian

Maggi contains MSG (Monosodium glutamate) used as a flavor enhancer, which is made? using Bactosoytone, itself made from soy protein using a catalyst enzyme porcine (taken from intestine of Pig). Chemically, catalyst never goes in the molecular structure of Bactosoytone, hence it’s Vegetarian for Nestle. MSG as such is harmful to health. Maggi also launched no-MSG series known as Vegetable Atta-Maggie, but that’s just a makeover.

Atta Maggie contains? DSG (DiSodium Glutamate), which does contain Bactosoytone. Not written in ingredients as such, hidden under alias Flavor-627. Maggi also contains flavour enhancers E 631 and E 635. Also a huge number of popular packed foods such as Magginoodles, biscuits etc and even other products such as toothpaste, soaps etc contain animal fat in them, that too, mostly PIG FAT.

“Disodium glutamate is produced from dried fish or dried seaweed and is often added to instant noodles, potato chips and other snacks, savouryrice, tinned vegetables, cured meats, and packaged soup”.

Monosodium glutamate (MSG – E621) is a flavor enhancer commonly added to Chinesefood, canned vegetables, soups and processed meats.

The following table indicates additives which are always derived from animals.

E Number Additive Name
120 Cochineal, Carminic acid, Carmines Natural Red 4 – colouring
A colouring that makes many foods red. Found in alcoholic drinks, fruit pie fillings, jams, many sweets and even cheeses. Cochineal is made from the female insect found on cacti called Dactylopius Coccus. She is boiled alive or left to “cook” alive through sun exposure. Cochineal is the result of crushing scales of the insect into a red powder.
441 Gelatine – Emulsifier / Gelling Agent
You may not find this E number 441 on food ingredients listings anymore because instead of an additive, Gelatine has now been classed as food (made of animal skin and hoofs) in it’s own right. Remember, all types of gelatine are animal based and can be found in dairy products like yoghurts, plus many kinds of confectionery, jellies and other sweets.
542 Bone phosphate – Anti-caking agent
631 Disodium inosinate – Flavour enhancer
Almost always made from animals and fish
635 Disodium 5′-ribonucleotides – Flavour enhancer
Often made from animals
901 Beeswax – white and yellow – Glazing Agent
Not suitable for Vegans.
966 Lactitol – Sweetener
Derived from Lactose, commercially prepared using whey, so unsuitable for vegans.

(Source)Why used in maggi ??

Pigs skin juice is used for bringing taste to maggi ans other flavour enhancers are listed in the above tables which play an important role in bringing the taste to the Maggi.

Simple experiment to try at home if you are non vegetarian:-
Boil chicken maggi soup powder and vegetarian maggi noodles masala powder

After boiling, taste both of them. They will taste the same.

3. Why Jain and Vaishnav people can’t eat Maggi??

People who follow jain and vaishnav religion can’t eat Maggi because it contains Onion and Garlic powder in it.

4. Other Foods which contains animals

  • Albumen: This is the white of egg and is commonly used on bread and confectionary.
  • Ajinomoto: Made from fish. Used as a sauce or in Chinese food.
  • Cheese: Most foreign cheeses are made by using stomach acids obtained from the slitting the stomachs of calves while alive.
  • Chewing gum: Usually made of vegetable gum but may contain glycerine, gelatine, stearic acid and emulsifiers of animal origin. Check on the label.
  • Chips: Always fried in animal fat abroad at all fast food eateries. Packaged Indian crisps must specify that they are cooked in vegetable oils or assume that they are not.
  • Chocolates: The most commonly used animal ingredients in chocolates are egg white, egg lecithin, shellac and gelatine. Nestle’s Kitkat is made of calf rennet. Turkish Delight, fruit rolls, toffees, marshmallows, jujubes, peppermints usually contain gelatine. Polo Mints contain beef. So do most Western sweets that come in via the Middle East. Smarties contain cochineal.
  • Colas: May use ester gum as emulsifiers. Ester gum’s main ingredient is glycerol. Coca Cola admits to using glycerine.
  • Ice-cream: Unless specifically listed as vegetarian, the ice cream contains eggs and gelatine obtained by boiling cattle udders, noses and anuses. Amul and Baskin Robbins are vegetarian.
  • Jam: Jammay contain gelatine
  • Jelly: Jelly is always made of gelatine. In fact the word jelly is a short form of gelatine. A few companies make it from vegetable gum and mark it as vegetarian jelly. Look for the label.
  • Varakh: This is made by beating silver between fresh hot cow/buffalo intestines. Each piece of varakh contains specks of intestine.
  • Riboflavin: This is used as a orange-yellow colouring agent. It is obtained from egg yolk or liver. It can also come from vegetables but that is expensive. Check with the manufacturer.
  • Worcester Sauce: It contains small fish called anchovies.

Uttarayana Festival By The Tamils Vadavazhi Vizha


Tamil and Sanatana Dharma walked hand in hand together, contrary to the misinformation that the Tamils were inimical to Sanatana Dharma .

I have recorded facts from History that how Tamils were a part of Sanatana Dharma, with additional contributions from them,Tamil Kings took part in the Marriages/Wars in the North of Vindhya Mountains.

Tamils celebrated the Lifting of Govardhan Giri by Lord Krishna by alluding to it through the Indra Vizha, The Festival for Indra.

219465-solstice

Position of Sun during Uttarayana, Dakshinayana.

This has been documented in earlier Tamil Sangam Works and in detail in the Silappadikaaram.

The Vedic Gods, Subrahmanya, Devi, Varuna,Vishnu and Indra were worshiped, assigning each of them to a unique terrain.

Vaadai Vizha or Vadavazhi Vizha, the festival of welcoming the Lord Surya back to home, as He turns northward, celebrated on December 21/22 (Winter Solstice) (the sixth day of Panmizh[Maargazhi]). It is sung about in Akanauruanthology.

Uttarayana

Uttarayana.

The Surya Siddhanta defines Uttarāyaṇa (उत्तरायण, উত্তরায়ণ, ઉત્તરાયણ), or Uttarayan as the period between the Makara Sankranti(which currently occurs around January 14) and Karka Sankranti (which currently occurs around July 16). The term Uttarayana is derived from two different Sanskrit words “uttara” (North) and “ayana” (movement) thus indicating a semantic of the northward movement of the Sun on the celestial sphere. This movement begins to occur a day after the winter solstice in December which occurs around 22 December and continues for a six-month period through to the summer solstice around June 21 (dates vary ). This difference is because the solstices are continually precessing at a rate of 50 arcseconds / year due to the precession of the equinoxes, i.e. this difference is the difference between the sidereal and tropical zodiacs. The Surya Siddhanta bridges this difference by juxtaposing the four solstitial and equinotial points with four of the twelve boundaries of the rashis.

Ahalyas Consensual Relation Indras Thousand Vulvas


I am intrigued by the Pancha kanya ,deifying five virgins. This list included among others Sita. Tara. Mandodari , Tara.

Some texts mention seven virgins ,Saptha Kanyas which includes Draupadi.The curious point is none of these women were virgins and excepting Sita had more than one husband, some under pressure and others willingly.

 

Please read my post on this ,Seven Chaste women of Hinduism.

Most intriguing is the case of Ahalya who was married to Sage Gautama.

Ahalya was created by Brahma and was an Ayonisha.

That is she was not born of a womb.

After her marriage Indra, Chief of Devas lusted after her and in the guise of her husband Gautama approached her ,seduces her and had relationship with her.

Gautama coming to know of this curses Indra to have 1000 Vulvas in his body and Ahalya was cursed to become a stone.

On her en treaties, Gautama tells her that she would regain her form once Lord Rama’s feet touch her.

And she she sholud offer oblations to Lord Rama.Balakanda of Ramyana by Valmiki states that Ahalya willingly gave herself up because she wasand flattered that thevKing of Devas was infatuated with her.And she was very proud of her beauty.

Essence is that she and Indra had consensual relationship.

But Uttara Ramayana differs slighly about how Ahalya was created by Brahma.

Later Brahnanas and folklore resorted to misinformation stating that Ahalya was an unwilling partner.

This difference is enough for foreigner scholars(?) to inject further sexual inundoe.

They have taken thecword Ahalya to mean ‘unploughed’

And Indra plouughed her.

What a crude and vulgar attempt.

The word Ahalya neans pure as a virgin land.

And , allegorically speaking, Indra , being the God of thunder maked infertile lands fertile.

TAGORE in his comment subscribes to this view

Subrahmanya Formula Agnishtoma An Orgy?


I have been searching for material to write on Gautama Rishi.

It is inevitable that one has to have details about Ahalya, His wife.

In the sources on Ahalya I have found some links that seemed to me a misinterpretation of some of the Vedic Rites.

That is the Subrahmanya Formula, a Mantra recited in the Agnishtoma Rite.

In this rite the Mantra,

Murugan with Valli and Devasena

Lord Subramanya with Valli and Devasena

‘Subramanyom’ is recited thrice.

Subranyam + Aham

One would have noticed ,at Home while performing Homas, and at the temple.Yaagas, the Santhi Mantras conclude with,

Subramanyom chanted thrice.

The meaning is,

May I become the Best Brahman,the Reality.

Brahmin is one who has realized Brahman, the Reality.

Subrahmanya is considered as the Best among Brahmins as He is reported to have explained the meaning of Pranava OM to His Father Lord Shiva.( hence Subrahmanya is called  Swaminathan).

But in the hands of the Foreign Scholars(?) with a Mission to destroy Hinduism  and half baked pseudo left wing(?) writers,this sentence and the ceremony associated with it takes a beating.

In the same way these scholars have written that the Asvamedha Yaaga performed by King Dasarata was followed by an Orgy with Rama’s Mohter Kousalya copulating with a Horse!

From Max Muller to Ambedkar,..

This Mantra , chanted during the Agnishtoma is accompanied by an Orgy, it is implied in their comments and explanations of the Rite!.

The Procedure explained in the Rig and Sama Veda,Aitreya Brahmana does not say this.

 

I am posting this article to misspell any misunderstanding that might arise because of not reading the Sanskrit original Text and an objective translation.

Hinduism has two parts in performance of Yaaga.

One is factual and actual.

Another one is allegorical, like the Purusha Suktha which describes the evolution of the Universe and not a mere Yaga/Yangya.

Agnishtoma is a Yaaga as it is performed with a specific purpose, for welfare and begetting progeny.

Oblations are offered to Fire symbolically.

The most complete information on its use being only to be found

referring to it along with the formula itself: —

After the Atithya Ishti has b^n finished, he (the Subrahmany^) 
should stand in the front part of the enclosure made for the wife of 
the sacrificer inside the Vedi, and when touching the sacriflcer and 
his wife, after having called thrice '' subrahmiinyom," recite the 
following formula, '* Come, Indra ! come owner of the yellow horses ! 
*' ram of Medhatithi ! Men& of Vrishanas'va ! thou bufiiilo (gaura) 
" who ascendest the female {avaskandin) ! lover of Ahaly& ! son of

(to appear) at the Soma feast in so and so many days how many 
there might intervene (between the day on which the 8abrahmany4 
calls him, and that of the Soma festival at which his presence it 
requested). The Subrahmany& is required on the second, third^ 
fourth, and fifth day of the Agnishtoma, and almost on every day of 
the other Soma sacrifices.^ On the second day the terms tryahg 
tutydm, "three days hence" (i,e, on the fifth); on the thrid day, 
dvyahefutydm, t. e. two days hence ; on the fourth, *'rfl#,i. e, to-

recommended 3i)T9*i^ im^cf, "come hither, O Magha van. "Others, 

such as Gautama, were of opinion, that either is to be omitted, and

immediately upon ^R^f*

power, thou who ascendest (the female) ; lover of Ushas/' ice The 
latter formula is just like that one addressed to Indra. Agni, as weU 
as Indra, are in both these formulas, which must be very ancient, 
invoked as family deities, the first pre-eminently worshipped by the 
Angirasa, the latter by the Kuslkas. Both ffods are here caUed 
" Bi&hmans." In later books ludra appears as a Kshattriya, and 
as a model of a king. 

On the so-called Agnishtomtya day of all sacrifices (in the Agni- 
sh^oma it is the fourth and precedes the Soma day), on which day 
the animal for Agni and Soma is slain and sacrificed, an extension of 
the Subrahmanyi formula takes place. The Subiahmany& priest 
has on this day to announce to the gods, that such and such one 
(the name of the sacrificer must be mentioned), the son of such and 
such one, the grandson of such and such one, offers, as a Dikshita, 
(as initiated into the sacrificial rites) a sacrifice. ("^fg^T^lJiS) 
The term ' Dtkshita' forms then henceforth part of the name of the 
sacrificer, and his descendants down to the seventh degree. In this 
part of India there are many Biahmans distinguished by this honorary 
epltiiet, which always indicates that either tlie bearer of it or his im- 
me«iiate ancestors have performed a Soma sacrifice, and have been 
proclaimed dikshita by the Subrahmany4 in all due form. ,

One should answer, She is Vach. For Vach is 
Brahma, and Subrahma (good Brahma). 

They ask, Why does one call him (the Subrah- 
manya priest) who is a male, a female ? (They answer) 
Subrahmanya represents VacH (which is in the 
feminine gender). 

They further ask, When all the other priests are to 
perform their respective duties within the Vedi, and 
the Subrah manya outside the Vedi, how is it that 
the duty of the Subrah manya (in this particular 
case) becomes performed inside the Vedi ? One 
should answer. The Vedi has an outlet where things 
(which are no more required) are ' thrown ; if the 
Subrahmanya priest calls (the Subrahmanya) when 
standing in this outlet, then, in this way, (his duty 
is performed within the bounds of the Vedi). They 
ask. Why does he, standing in the outlet, repeat 
the SubrahmanyS, ? (On this they tell the following 
story.) 

The Rislns held once a sacrificial session. They 
said to the most aged man among them, " Call the 
Subrahmanya^ Thou shalt call the gods standing 
among us (on account of thy age), as it were, nearest 
to them." In consequence of this the gods make 
him (the Subrahmanya) very aged. In this way he 
pleases the whole Vedi. 

They ask. Why do they present to him (the Su- 
brahmanya) a bull as a reward for his services ? (The 
answer is) The bull is a male ( vrlshd)^ the Subrah- 
manya is a female, both making thus a ( ouple. 
(This is done) for producing offspring from this 
pair. 

The ^gridhra repeats the YSjya mantra for the 
P^tnivata Graha (a Soma vessel), with a low voice. 
For the Patnivatais the semen virile, and the effusion 
of the semen virile passing on without noise, as it 
were, he does cot make the Anuvashatk&m. Foe 

33 a 



386 

the Anuvashatara is a stop. Thinking, I will not 
stop the effusion of the semen, he does not make the 
Anuvashtkara, for the semen which is not disturbed 
in its effusion, beare fruit. Sitting near the N'eshtair, 
he then eats, for the Neshtar is in the room of women. 
Agni (Agnidhra) pours semen in women, to produce 
children. He who has this knowledge provides 
through Agni his females with semen, and is blessed 
with children and cattle. 

The Subrahmanya ends after the distribution of 
the Dakshina,* for she is Vach. The Dakshina is 
food ; thus they place finally the sacrifice in food, 
which is Speech. 



SECOND CHAPTER, 

(On the Skastras of the minor Hotri-priests at the 

Saitras.) 



(On the Shastras of minor Hoiri-priests at the morn^ 

ing and evening libations!) 

The Devas spread the sacrifice. When doing so, 
the Asuras approached them, thinking, let us ob^ 
struct their sacrifice. They attacked them from the 
right side, thinking this to be the weak point. The 
Devas awoke, and posted two of their number, Mitra 
and Varuna on the right side. Through the as- 
sistance of these two, the Devas drove the Asuras 
and Rakshas away from the morning libation. And 
thus the sacrificers drive them away (if they have 
the Maitravamna Shastra repeated); thence the 
Maitra varuna priest repeats the Maitravaruna Shastra 

* He represents Agni. 

* The Dakshin& is distributed at the midday libation. 



387 



at the morning libation. The Asuras, defeated on the 
right side, attacked the centre of the sacriftce^ The 
Devas awoke, posted then Indra, and defeated through 
his assistance the enemies. Therefore the Brahma- 
nachamsi repeats at the morning libation the Indra 
Shastra. 

The Asuras, thus defeated, attacked the sacrifice 
on the northern side. The Devas posted on this 
side Indragni, and defeated thus the Asuras. There- 
fore the Achhavaka repeats the Aindragna Shastra 
at the morning libation. For by means of In- 
dragni the Devas drove the Asutas and Rakshas 
away from the northern side.

Irungovel Tamil King And Hoysalas Founder The Same


Apart from the well known Kings of Tamil Nadu there were some other Kings in Tamil Nadu of yore.

One such is Irungovel, who ruled over the western part of Tamil Nadu not covered by the Chera Kings.

hosalya-map

Hoysla Kingdom.

The area corresponds roughly the area surrounding Coimbatore extending  to Dharmapuiri.

It is also interesting to note that King Pari who ruled around this area belongs to Velir Community.

This community was brought from Dwaraka when or after Dwaraka was sinking or a little before or a little after( with those who remained the deluge) by Sage Agastya.

Some intriguing points.

1.The time frame mentioned and the reference found in Nachinarkkiniyar , a famous Tamil commentator of Sangam Literature.

Sangam Tamil poets composed over 2000 poems. Purananuru is an encyclopaedia of Tamil culture. It has got less than 400 verses. Purananuru verse 201 was composed by Kapilar two thousand years ago. This is a very important verse in Purananuru. It throws much light on early Indian History. Kapilar talks about 49th generation of Irungovel. Famous Tamil Commentator Nachinarkiniyar , who lived several hundred years ago, gave a very interesting story about this verse.

Nachinarkiniyar said that Agastya brought 12 tribes from Dwaraka ruled by Lord Krishna. Another city in the name of Dwaraka was founded in Karnataka (Mysore) state in the twelfth century. There is an interesting story about how and who founded this city. Hoychalas were the kings who ruled from this city.Hoychala is translated into Tamil asPulikadimal which is found in verse 201.

Chala was a king belonging to Yadu dynasty. While he was hunting in the Western Ghats, he saw a hare heroically fighting with a tiger. This made him to think that this place must have some special importance. When he followed the fighting tiger and hare, an ascetic who was doing penance ordered king Chala to kill the tiger. The ascetic’s order in Sanskrit was “Hatham Hoy Chala”. So from that day on wards the king and his descendants were called Hoychalas. If the verse 201 refers to this anecdote then it must have happened 2000 years ago.

This is reinforced by the Temples dedicated to Hindu Gods by the Hoysalas in Karnataka.

Kannadigas from Yadava Tribe

This King could have been called as Irungovel in Tamil and Hoysala in Karnataka.

The area in question is around the present border of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.

2.Tamil Literature speaks of a King who was born of a Yaaga in Dwaraka and the city of Dwaraka was enclosed by Copper walls.

We know that Dwaraka and Gujarat present a very rich archeological source for IVC. The contention of Dr Parpola and the Dravidian politicians of Tamilnadu is that Tamils have descended form the IVC locations of North India. The verse by poet Kapilar in fact traces the origins of the King IrungoveL to Dwaraka. He says that he belonged to the 49th generation of the king who was born of the Sacrificial Fire conducted by the sage of the North. This king ruled Dwaraka, so says the poet. Reserving the other details of this verse for a future post, I am now concentrating on another description in that song.

( There is another interpretation on the interpretatiion of  the term Sacrificial fire

Kapilar describes Dwaraka as being surrounded by walls made of copper.

நீயே, வடபால் முனிவன் தடவினுள் தோன்றிச்,
செம்பு புனைந்து இயற்றிய சேண்நெடும் புரிசை,
உவரா ஈகைத், துவரை ஆண்டு,
நாற்பத்து ஒன்பது வழிமுறை வந்த
வேளிருள் வேளே!
This means “O king IrungoveL! you were the 49th king in the lineage of the king, who was born of the sacrificial fire conducted by the sage and ruled Dwarka which was surrounded by long / tall walls of copper.”

From the commentary that Dr U.Ve.Sa found out form the palm leaf manuscripts :-
“நீ தான் வட பக்கத்து முனிவனுடைய ஓம குண்டத்தின் கண் தோன்றிச் செம்பால் புனைத்து செய்தாலொத்த சேய்மையை உடைத்தாகிய நெடிய மதிலை உடைய துவராவதி என்னும் படை வீட்டை ஆண்டு, வெறுப்பில்லாத கொடையினை உடையராய் நாற்பத்தொன்பது தலைமுறை தொன்றுபட்டு வந்த வேள்களுள் வைத்து வேளாய்உள்ளாய்!”..

 

 ‘This king was not in Dwaraka when Kapilar met him and sang this verse. He was ruling some part of the western ghats in present day’s Karnataka. This Vel’s kingdom was different from the Tamil lands of the 3 kings (Chera, Chola and Pandya). The next verse was on the same king sung by Kapilar in which he describes his land in the hills.
This king’s palace was not surrounded by walls of copper. Copper walls were there in the kingdom of his ancestors in Dwaraka.Assuming that 3 kings lived per century, we can say that 1600 years have passed by the time this 49th king had come into being. The period of this king is not exactly known, but can be deciphered from Kapilar’s other connections. Kapilar was a close friend of another VeL king, Paari who was killed by the 3 Tamil kings. Kapilar took care of Parri’s orphaned daughters and approached another Vel king, IrungoveL to request him to marry the two daughters of Paari. This verse contains that request.

If we know the time period of Paari, we can ascertain the original period of the king of Dwaraka mentioned in this verse.
Paari and other Vel kings were regarded as the 3rd and last group of Patrons (கடை ஏழு வள்ளல்கள்).

The Vel lineage seems to have ended by the time Silapapdhikaram was written.

Silappadhikaram is about the Cheran king Neduncheralaathan (நெடுஞ்சேரலாதன்) who brought the stone from Himalayas to construct a temple for Kannagi. He conquered kings of the North and brought them as prisoners (They were made to carry the stone).

He later released them and ordered his deputy to keep them in the palace of the Vel king, by name Aavikko (வேளாவிக்கோ).

(Silapapdhikaaram chapter 28 )

“வஞ்சி மூதூர் புறத்துத்
தாழ் நீர் வேலித் தன மலர்ப் பூம்பொழில்
வேளாவிக்கோ மாளிகை காட்டி”

The king showed the palace of Velaavikko surrounded by cool waters and gardens in the city of Vanji (his capital city).

(Vanji is perhaps Kochi of Kerala.)

From this we can say that the Vels were there before 2nd century AD.
1600 years before that period coincides with the time of Dwarkan excavations given by Prof S.R Rao on Bet Dwaraka.
Bet Dwaraka was a later-built city which is dated at 1520 BC by Prof Rao


Details in this link :-

http://www.hinduonnet.com/thehindu/mp/2002/11/20/stories/2002112000450200.htm

This date does not coincide with Krishna‘s date as we saw in the previous post in this series. Krishna‘s time precedes by another 1500 years.

Krishna’s Dwaraka could have been very much under the sea as there is marine archeological proof of very old habitations – now sunken – of a period, 5000 years to 7500 years ago.

The Vel king of this sangam verse might have had his lineage traced to the Dwarakan king of Bet Dwaraka.’

The king could have been the descendant of Krishna’s.

3.Krishna’s dynasty listing 71 Generations of Krishna lists Shatasena as the 71 st King and Krishna comes at 64th.

Assuming 3 Kings for every hundred years Shatasena fits the bill.

More interesting is the fact that was he  Krishna’s son through Jambavathi, who is listed as Satyajit?

71 generations of Krishna

The area where Jambhavathi and her father lived was Kishkinta, now confirmed as Hampi  and surrounding areas in Karnataka.

Possible that he conquered these areas later called as Velir Areas in Tamil Nadu?

4.Irungovel and Hoysalas were the same or one is the descendant of the  other?

It may be noted that both the Velirs and the Hoyasals were at war with the Cholas initially.

Tank Built By A Lakh Men 1100Years Ago Feeds Chennai


While we keep questioning about the antiquity of our culture,dismissing them as Myths/legends we keep using the facilities built by them for our daily use even today.

I can make out a long list of them.

In this first article let me look at the reservoir, Lake built around AD, which quenches Chennai’s thirst.( a Metro in India).

This Lake, located 14 km (8.7 mi) SSW of Chidambaram in Cuddalore district in the state of Tamil Nadu in South India. 1 km (0.62 mi) from Sethiyathope., 235 km (146 mi) from Chennai, India.

Veeranam Reservoir which has a capacity of 1.5 thousand million cubic feet (tmcft), supplies 180 million litres a day (MLD) to the city.

Who Built this Lake?

Veeranam Reservoir, near Chennai.

Veeranam Lake was built in the Tenth Century during the time of Greater Cholas, from 907–955 AD, by Rajadithya Chola.

The Rashtrakutas under Krishna III mounted multiple invasions into the Chola territories between 940 and 950 A.D. In order to ward of the attacks, Rajaditya stationed himself at Takkōlam along with his troops during the latter part of his reign.

Rajadithya was appointed by his father Parantaka Chola 1 in charge of Northern Territory of the Chola.

Rajadithya had over 100,000 Men constituting his army and he did not want to keep them idle.

He made them build a Lake, called Veerananarayna Lake, named after the Presiding Deity  Lord Vishnu in Cuddalore/Thiruppadithiripuliyur.

He also carried out works in the temple.

In the 1830s, (later Sir) Arthur Cotton, the engineer who later harnessed the waters of the Krishna and Godavari, studied the tank in detail. He noted that there was no serious defect in the tank (this, 900 years after it was constructed)
