Pisco Bay, Peru
“A golden pylon resembling a palm tree with three branches is established on the peak of that mountain as the insignia of that great-souled Ananta, and it will be lustrous with a golden podium”.
[Valmiki Ramayana 4-40-53]
I have written a number of articles on the presence of Sanatana Dharma throughout the world with evidence based on Archeology,Geological similarites, tectonic plate movement, cultural and linguistic similarities, etymology cross verifying them with Indian and foreign texts and double check them with Carbon, Infra red tests of artifactscand rock samples.
I have found the presence of Sanatana Dharma being present and thecIndians were familiarcwith the the world geography and civilisations and culture.
I have listed down such influences/presence in,
Nort , Central and South Americas ,
Iran and Afghanistan.
Though I have mentiobed Peru in the passing I am producing the Sloka from Valmiki Ramayana about the presence of Shiva’ Trident Mark in Peru.
‘ Sugreeva, the ‘vanara’ commander, sends a search party (for the abducted Sita) eastward from the shores of what is now called India, to Java, Sumatra and ahead crossing five oceans over a period of one month. After crossing the five oceans the vanaras are told they will reach the shores of a land mass from where they can see the ‘shining three-branched palm tree etched on a mountain’, which has been identified as the Paracas Trident of Peru. It is located on the northern face of the Paracas Peninsula at Pisco Bay in Peru on the South Pacific Ocean….
And then the Ramayana states that when the ‘vanaras’ move inland ahead from this ‘shining three-leaved palm constructed as a compass by the celestials’, they reach the glorious Udaya peak or Mt. Sunrise, and beyond that to another peak by the name Mt. Saumanasa where Lord Vishnu set his foot when he first came to the earth.
But, now the interesting part about Mt. Udaya (after which the Andes range probably gets its name). The Ramayana states, “In the beginning Brahma, the Creator, ordained this Mt. Sunrise to be the gateway for the earth to heaven….”. -Valmiki Ramayana, Book 4- verse 64.
The ‘portal’ found on the left side of the Pedra da Gávea. The Valmiki Ramayana speaks of at least
one ‘gateway to heaven’ in this region.
The location identified by the Ramayana seems to be in Peru, though there are additional verses that mention about ‘celestial activity’ in the area beyond the Udaya Mountains.
Thousands of miles away from India, in Peru and beyond it in Brazil where no one would have heard of this verse from the Valmiki Ramayana, local legend has it that there are three portals to other subterranean worlds. Paedra de Gaeva seems to be one of these portals.
