Meru Mountain Hinduism Pico Cao Grande Gabon Africa Where Lemuria Atlantis Met


I have written earlier that the ancient Texts of Hinduism lend themselves to minimum four interpretations.

1.The literary,word by word meaning.

2.The Philosophical meaning.

3.The Scientific meaning and

4.Tantric meaning which espouses the Geometric and Sound combined Concept for Spiritual upliftment.

All texts lend themselves to this approach.

I shall write on this shortly.

Hence each Concept in Hinduism has at least four interpretations.

So is the case with Meru.

Meru ,for example ,is described ,in Lalitha Sahasranama thus.

‘Sumeru Mandala Madhyastha Sriman Nagara Nayikaa’

Of Lalitha Devi it describes,

‘The one who dwells in the city of SriChakra(Sri Nagara),which is located in the Meru Mountain.

Let us look at the Geographical approach.

Mount Meru has been suggested to be in Arctic,Tanzania,Kashmir,apart from being a Tantric Concept.

Ayodhya, Mathura,Pandyaa Kingdoms, not to speak of the Holy places, Rivers, Mountains and even the Species that thrive in these locations.

At the same time one gets the impression that the areas mentioned are not in The Earthand are located in some other location ,Planet, under the Ocean.

And we have the Lokas, the abode of Beings confusing.

We have , for example, the Surya Loka, Chandra Loka.’

Meru in Arctic

Mount Meru is an active stratovolcano located 70 kilometres (43 mi) west of Mount Kilimanjaro in the nation of Tanzania.

And there is a Town Meru in the neighboring Kenya!

3.Meru is also identified Mount Meru or Sumeru with the Pamirs, north-west of Kashmir.

Meru in Tanzania

Mount Meru is also theorised somewhere near Sumeria,the term Sumeria from Meru ,Sumeru.

There are extensive descriptions of Meru in the Puranas.

There is a parallel system of Hinduism in the south of Vindhya ranges,called Dravida Desa,where the Tamils lived around 230 million years ago.

Please refer my article Lemuria Home of Tamils.

There are three concepts regarding this landmass.

Lemuria,

Its outer portion MU and

Kumarikandam.

Lemuria and Kumarikandam seem to have slightly different landmass,while there is agreement that  MU formed the periphery of the land of Tamils.

Detailed research was carried out by James Churchward.

You may read my articles on Kumarikandam,Lemuria and MU.

Though there are references in ancient Tamil Texts,they are few.

A text of Yoga and Advaitha,which predates Patanjali,Thirumandhiram by Thirumoolar,A Siddha , is presumed to be over 3000 years old.

Thirumandhiram has 3000 poems,which deal with Spirituality,Yoga ,Shiva and Advaitha.

Thirumandhiram is subjected to scientific research in the US.

A poem refers to Meru.

It refers Meru as a Mountain a Mountain whics was located at the point where the Equator,and the Zero degrees of Longitude and Latitude converge and it was devoured by the Ocean.

I checked the information with the present Geographical areas.

The result is that Mount Meru seems to have been near the Gulf of Guyana.

To be exact, the intersection of  zero degrees latitude and zero degrees longitude falls about 380 miles (611 kilometers) south of Ghana and 670 miles (1078 km) west of Gabon. This location is in the tropical waters of the eastern Atlantic Ocean, specifically, the Gulf of Guinea.

The Gulf of Guinea is part of the western edge of the African tectonic plate. Most notably, according to the theory of continental drift, this may have been the location where South America and Africa were once joined.

The equator has a mark of zero degrees latitude and the prime meridian one of zero degrees longitude, but where do these two lines meet? The simple answer is that they intersect in the Gulf of Guinea, just off the western coast of Africa.’

 It is the place where South America and Africa Continents join.

The equator is at zero degrees latitude. 
It is the starting point for measuring latitude.


The equator runs through the top of South America, through the middle of Africa and then Indonesia and north of New Guinea.

The Meru Mountain must be, based on this,should have been among middle of Africa,Indonesia and North of New Guinea.

Pico Cao grande mountain seems to fit the bill ,though it is slighly off the mark in longitude and Latitude

More exploration under the sea in the nearby areas needed.

Pico Cão Grande

The Pico Cão Grande (Portuguese for “Great Dog Peak”) is a landmark needle-shaped volcanic plug peak in São Tomé and Príncipe, in the south of São Tomé Island in Obo National Park. It rises dramatically over 370 m (1,000 ft) above the surrounding terrain and the summit is 668 m (2,175 ft) above sea level.

São Tomé Island, at 854 km2 (330 sq mi), is the largest island of São Tomé and Príncipe and is home to about 157,000 or 96% of the nation’s population. This island and smaller nearby islets make up São Tomé Province, which is divided into six districts. The main island is located 2 km (1¼ miles) north of the equator. It is about 48 kilometres (30 miles) long (North-South) by 32 kilometres (20 miles) wide (east-west). It rises to 2,024 metres (6,640 feet) at Pico de São Tomé and includes the capital citySão Tomé, on the northeast coast. The nearest city on mainland Africa is the port city of Port Gentil in Gabon located 240 kilometres (150 miles) to the east.

0.1180° N, 6.5660° E

Is this the place where Atlantis and Memuria met?

The poem runs thus,

1394. ஊரும் உலகமும் ஒக்கப் படைக்கின்ற

பேரறி வாளன் பெருமை குறித்திடின்
மேருவும் மூவுல காளி யிலங்கெழுந்
தாரணி நால்வகைச் சைவமு மாமே.

(ப. இ.) ஊர் உலகம் உடல் உறுப்பு உண்பொருள் எல்லாம் கருவியின்றிக் கலந்தியக்கும் கருத்தளவானே படைத்தருள்கின்றவன் சிவன். அவன் இயல்பாக விளங்கும் முற்றுணர்வுடைய பேரறிவாளனாவன். அவன்றன் அளவிலாப் பெருமையை நாமறிந்த அளவில் குறிப்போமானால் மேருவாகிய பொன்மலையும், மூவுலகையும் ஒருங்கு ஆளும் அவன் (சிவபெருமான்) படைத்தருளும் உலகமும், சுத்தம், மிகுசுத்தம், மார்க்கம், கடுஞ்சுத்தம் என்னும் நால்வகைச் சைவமும் ஓர் புடை ஒப்பாகச் சொல்லலாம். அசுத்தம் – மிகுசுத்தம். நால்வகைச் சைவமும் சிவபெருமானின் நின்றே தோன்றுவன. துளக்கமில்லாத சிவபெருமானின் அளத்தற்கரிய பெருமையினுக்குப் பொன்மலையொப்பாகும். எங்கும் நீக்கமற நிறைந்து நிற்கும் இயல்பினுக்கு நிலவுலகம் ஒப்பாகும். தவறாது திருவடிப்பேறாம் மெய்ப்பயன் தருதற்கு நால்வகைச் சைவம் ஒப்பாகும். சுத்தம் – உண்மை, இயற்கை, நால்வகைச் சைவம் வருமாறு: இயற்கைச் செந்நெறி, மீ இயற்கைச் செந்நெறி, மெய்யுணர்வுச் செந்நெறி, மெய்கண்டார் செந்நெறி என்பன. இவற்றை முறையே, சுத்த சைவம், அசுத்த சைவம், மார்க்க சைவம், கடுஞ்சுத்த சைவம் எனவும் கூறுப. அசுத்தம் என்பதில் ‘அ’ அப்பால் என்பதன் முதலெழுத்தாகும். எனலு மொன்று. செந்நெறி எனினும் சிவனெறி எனினும் ஒன்றே.

(அ. சி.) நால்வகைச் சைவம் – சுத்த சைவம், அசுத்த சைவம், மார்க்க சைவம், கடுஞ்சுத்த சைவம். மேரு – பூமியின் மத்திய இரேகையும் நிரட்சர ரேகையும் சேரும் இடத்தில் இருந்து கடல் கொண்டடொழிந்த மேரு மலை. சுமேரு – வட துருவம் (North pole.) குமேரு – தென் துருவம் (South pole.) இங்கே நிலைதவறாமைக்கு உவமையாக வந்தது. மூவுலகு – பரந்து விரிந்த தன்மைக்கு உவமை. சைவம் – மெய்ப்பயன் தருவதற்கு உவமை.’

  1. Namaskarams. Who can authenticate the veracity of the Hindu mythological
    series that appear on tv. Disgusting is not the word. Each of them twisting
    to their likes and dislikes and all of us standing mute spectators. What’s
    your take on this?
