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, of Incas.

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”

      1. i read many sastra like Gita, Bhagavat, Ramayana, Upanisads etc.. never saw any Mahajana or Visnu calling the devas as asura .. translation must be wrong … they are sura the sons of aditi , it was Diti who gave birth to Asuras … anyway its not the case of Virochan, he was son of Prahlad who was son of Hiranyakasipu, so he was not only Asura by birth but sastra also describe him as asura related to knowledge .. he was completly ignorant about the real truth, so its impossible that Viracocha refers to him … must probably it was Vamana-dev as per the description of both, Inca and vedic sastra .. thank you …


    1. the clouds color is bluish or may be takn as black, Krsna is also said to be of color of the heavy cloud-black


  1. Namste, it may be Virochan, but in anyway his son Bali was also conected with Lord wamana the avatar of Vishnu, the description of Viracocha by incas match exactly with description of vaman Avatar in Puranas. he was dwarf one can see Viracocha have very small legs. He had stick on hands etc… In Cuzco there is a Saksay waman temple also, evertything indicates Vamana Avatar, one thing, its dificult to say ythat Incas worshiped Virochan, because he wa slearned, he could not learn about the soul from Brahma, so Incas were civilized and had conection with the Sun (iksvaku dynasty) probably Virochan is not same Viracocha. Its what i concluded in my study, please any more thoughts? write me thanks anamste


    1. Your point hasa lot of merit.
      Considering the ancestors of the Incas being the Tamils,and the Incas celebrated Mkara Sankaranthi , the chances are they worshiped Shiva.
      And I am checking on Virochana further.
      Sorry for the delay in replying.Rgds.
