Seven Pehistoric Root Races,Lemuria,Atlantis Sanatana Dharma Details

FeaturedPrehistoric races.image.

History is like a coy maiden,tantalizing,mysterious,revealing teasers but never the whole.

I have been writing Ramani’s blog for the past eight years to share what interests me and what little I know.

In the process, I have come across information about the History of World,Races,Languages and Religions.

The facts unearthed on the above subjects from sources around the world are interesting,mind boggling,mysterious ,yet probable and possible and above all disturbing though not confusing,at least to me.

Consider the following.

Civilizations around the world seem to have flourished ,reached their pinnacle and suddenly ceased to Be.

Lemurians,Mayans,Aztecs,Incas,Sanatana Dharma,Atlantis,Hyperborean.

The landmass where they existed, as verified by Geology, was different in their days.

Traces of these civilizations are found even today.

These civilizations were wuite advanced including what we call Advanced Scientific Concepts.

Next is Human migration.

Humans seem to have lived everywhere,yer their ancestry seem to be traced either to India and Africa.

Africans trace their roots to India,Madurai,Tamil Nadu.

Lemuria,the Home of Tamils dates back to 230 million years.

Thiruvannamalai,Tamil Nadu,India is 3.94 billion years old.

Tirupati,Telengana,India,is 2100 million Years old.

Jwalapuram ,Cuddapah,is 74,000 years old.

One finds the twin of Arunachala mountain,Thiruvannamalai in The US in Mount Sastha.

The Rog Veda was composed in the Arctic.

Rig Vedic Mandala city,the Seven holy rivers of Hinduism,Krishna’s son Pradhyumna’s city in Port Baijn,Russia,worship of Ayur Devathas in Sibera,Natural Vishnu Temple in Colorado,US,Shiva’s quadrilateral temple in Grand Canyon,Shiva’ Trinetra Dance in Australia,Shiva Temple in Petra Jordan,Shivalinga in Kaaba,Rama in Atlantis,Rama,Bharatha and Dasaratha in Somerian Kings List,….

A million year old site in Chennai,India quotes Vedas and Vedas quote Tamil and Tamil Kings,

Rama waged a war againt Atlantis,

Sumerian,Minoan,Assyrian,Mayans,Aztecs,Incas trace their origins to Tamils.

Bhagavad Gita verse is found in a Pyramid in Egypt.

Shiva’s city,Hanuman and Gadithgaja’s temple found in Central America.

Cameroonians speak Tamil,

Shiva’s Trishul is found in Peru’s Nazca Lines.

Sanskrit and Tamil seem to have influenced world languages.

All Indian languages of India seem to be,at least,5000years old.

Kannada Brahmi is a Million years old.

Tamil Brahmi is fiund in Indus Valley.

Tamil kings trace their ancestry to Solar Dynasty of Lord Rama.

Solar worship was practiced throughout the world.

European migration seems to have occurred from Asia and the period corresponds to the The Three Tsunamis recorded in Tamil Literature.

Yet the evidence of all these,though individually verifiable,fail to provide a continuum.

I have,with great difficulty,published a complete list of Solar Dynasty,Tamil Kings Dynasty from Prehistoric times.

Trying another track,I find what we call inventions today are merely discoveries and they seem to surface at some,it seems to me,specific period of Time.

Wheel is supposed to have been invented in the west.

Yet we find references to it Hindu Puranas,and Tamil Sangam Literature dated around 3000 BC.

Tamil Sangam period is at least 30,000 years old as revealed by the excavation of Poompuhar,Tamil Nadu.

References to the people of Atlantis are found in Hindu texts,as fair skinned.

The landmass ,as described in the Puranas,is verified by Geology.

This has impelled me to look for sources for the races .

Till date I have been able to confirm Lemuria,Sanatana Dharma,Hyperborean and the ancestry of Mayans,Incas,Aztecs,Sumerians,Minoans and Assyrians.

Looks as though there was a deliberate attempt behind the collapse of civilizations and the emergence of new ones.

I have stumbled on the Theory of Root Races,which are Prehistotic.

There are seven root races and many subraces.

Five have emerged and rwo yet to manifest.

It might look strange and not to reason.


The instruments of Knowledge and our concept of Time needs a relook.

This is necessitated by the emergence of Quantum Theory,Time warp and Multiverses.

I have written on these and other points mentioned in this article.

Please check under Hinduism/Astronomy categories in this site.

Shall write more on these and the sources of Knowledge and our modern day science.

The Root Races.

Every planet develops seven Root Races and seven subraces. Our planet Earth already developed five Root Races; it needs to develop two more Root Races.

After the seven Root Races, the planet Earth, already transformed by cataclysms over the course of millions of years, will become a new moon.

This entire Earth’s devolving and evolving life came from the Moon. When the great life abandoned the Moon, it died; it became a desert. The Moon also developed seven Root Races and each one of them developed seven subraces. The soul [of the Moon], the lunar life, is now devolving and evolving in our planet Earth; this is how the worlds reincarnate.

The Aztecs state that the human beings of the first Root Race were extraordinary, dark-colored giants. This was a very civilized, androgynous, asexual, semi-physical, semi-ethereal Root Race. Their individuals could reduce their height to the size of an average person of this present Aryan Root Race. Their rituals—as well as their wisdom—were portentous. Barbarism did not exist in their epoch; this Root Race was devoured by the Tigers of Wisdom.

The regent of the first Root Race was the God Tezcatlipoca. Each individual was a Master of Wisdom. Their reproduction system was effectuated by means of the fissiparous act; this is a system similar to that which organic cells use for reproduction, which is the process of cellular division. This is how the organism of the father-mother was divided into two, and the androgynous child was fastened to the father-mother for awhile.

The first Root Race lived on the Sacred Island situated in the north polar cap. That island still exists, yet it is in a Jinn state within the fourth vertical.

The second Root Race was governed by Quetzalcoatl; this was the Hyperborean humanity. The degenerated people of the second Root Race converted themselves into monkeys; these are the ancestors of present monkeys. They reproduced themselves by budding, such as the plants do: from their trunk sprout many branches. They were wiped out by strong hurricanes.

The third Root Race was the Lemurian race, which inhabited Mu, which today is the Pacific Ocean. They perished by fire raining from the sun (volcanoes and earthquakes). This Root Race was governed by the Aztec God Tlaloc. Their reproduction was by means of gemmation. Lemuria was a very extensive continent.

The Lemurians who degenerated had, afterwards, faces similar to birds; this is why some savages, when remembering tradition, adorned their heads with feathers.

The fourth Root Race was the Atlanteans and was governed by the Aztec God Atonatiuh. It finished with a great inundation. The pre-Columbian tribes of America are descendents of this Root Race, as well as the primeval Chinese and Egyptians, etc.

The fifth is the Aryan Root Race: we are this Root Race. The present Aryan race will end with a great cataclysm.

This cataclysm is perfectly described in the Ahau Katún, which is the 13 Ahau Katun, the thirteenth to be counted. Cabal lxbach Chachalaca town. Kinchil Coba, Chachalaca of solar face is the base of the thirteenth Katun.

The branch of the lords of earth will be black by the universal justice of God, our Lord. The Sun will turn away. The face of the Moon will turn away.

Blood will run on trees and stones. The heavens and earth will burn by the word of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost. Holy Justice, Holy Judgement of God, our Lord.

The force of heaven and earth will be worthless when the big cities and the hidden towns, and the great city Maax-Monkey and all the small towns everywhere in the flat country of Maya-Cusamil-Mayapán, Mayan-swallow-deer-banner, become Christians.

It will be the time when two-days-humanoids (homosexuals and lesbians) will raise, in the heat of lechery, as the children of the wicked and the perverse — height of our perdition and shame.

Our children will be offered to the May flower and there will be no good for us.

The rising Moon will be the beginning of death by bad blood, and on the coming of the full Moon, the whole of the blood will come.

The good stars will also show kindness to the dead and the living.

Until here we read what the book of the books of Chilam Balam, sacred jewel of the Mayan people, textually states.

Sixth Root Race: Koradi. It will exist after the cataclysm of the fifth Root Race; it will live on a transformed Earth.

The seventh Root Race will be the last one.

Now, it is necessary to talk about the seven planetary rounds.’


Root races are stages in human evolution in the esoteric cosmology of theosophist Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, as described in her book The Secret Doctrine (1888). These races existed mainly on now-lost continents. Blavatsky’s model was developed by later theosophists, most notably William Scott-Elliot in The Story of Atlantis (1896) and The Lost Lemuria (1904). Annie Besant further developed the model in Man: Whence, How and Whither (1913). Both Besant and Scott-Elliot relied on information from Charles Webster Leadbeater obtained by “astral clairvoyance”. Further elaboration was provided by Rudolf Steiner in Atlantis and Lemuria (1904). Rudolf Steiner, and subsequent theosophist authors, have called the time periods associated with these races, Epochs (Steiner felt that the term “race” was not adequate anymore for modern humanity)….’



Shivas Tripura Capital of Atlantis?

It is time for me to start searching for Atlantis,Lemuria and MU in detail as new evidence of emerging city in Antarctica and the finding of an Alloy belonging to Atlantis.

I have written on the Antarctica as the emerging city of Shiva.

Now the news about Atlantis Alloy.

Alloy, which according to Greek legend was mined on the ancient mythical island of Atlantis, has been discovered on a shipwreck which sank off the coast of Sicily 2,600 years ago. Some 47 ingots of ‘orichalcum’ have so far been recovered from the ancient underwater find.

Described as brass-like and made through the reaction of zinc ore, charcoal and copper, the alloy has never before been discovered in such quantity. Uncovered back in 2015, the ingots’ composition was revealed only after analysis using X-ray fluorescence, reported Seeker.

Two Corinthian helmets, believed to have been part of the ship’s defense against pirates, were also discovered at the shipwreck. “Another hypothesis is that they were meant to be an offer to the gods,” according to Sebastiano Tusa, an archaeologist involved in the find and superintendent of the Sea at Palermo.

Orichalcum became legendary through the writings of Greek philosopher Plato, who wrote that the material was mined in Atlantis, where it covered Poseidon’s temple.’


Now to Atlantis.

I have written a few articles on Atlantis,

Tripura Rotating Cities destroyed by Shiva

Atlantis White Island of White skinned

Now references to Atlantis by Plato.

In Plato’s book, Timaeus, a character named Kritias tells an account of Atlantis that has been in his family for generations. According to the character, the story was originally told to his ancestor, Solon, by a priest during Solon’s visit to Egypt.

There had been a powerful empire located to the west of the “Pillars of Hercules” (what we now call the Straight of Gibraltar) on an island in the Atlantic Ocean. The nation there had been established by Poseidon, the God of the Sea. Poseidon fathered five sets of twins on the island. The firstborn, Atlas, had the continent and the surrounding ocean named for him. Poseidon divided the land into ten sections, each to be ruled by a son, or his heirs.

The capital city of Atlantis was a marvel of architecture and engineering. The city was composed of a series of concentric walls and canals. At the very center was a hill, and on top of the hill a temple to Poseidon. Inside was a gold statue of the God of the Sea showing him driving six winged horses.

About 9000 years before the time of Plato, after the people of Atlantis became corrupt and greedy, the gods decided to destroy them. A violent earthquake shook the land, giant waves rolled over the shores, and the island sank into the sea, never to be seen again.  ( )

Now to what Indian scriptures say on this.

The Vishnu Purana, one of the oldest of the Hindu Puranas, speaks of “Atala, the White Island,” one of the seven dwipas (islands) belonging to Patala (Book II, chaps. i, ii, and iii). This ancient text locates Atala geographically on the seventh (heat, or climate) zone, which according to Francis Wilford (the translator) is 24 to 28 degrees north latitude, putting it in the same latitude as the Canary Islands just off the North African coast. Col. Wilford rightly calls Atala, “Atlantis, the White Island”. (Wilford, 1808)

At least one “authority” has attempted to identify Atala with Italy, but Italy is not an island. Also, Italy is 38 to 45 degrees north latitude. Finally, I fail to see any possibility that the “Western Ocean,” mentioned in the texts as its location, could be the Mediterranean Sea when the Karna Parva of the Mahabharata clearly describes Africa as comprising that ocean’s eastern shoreline—placing that body of water clearly to the west of Africa

Another non-Sanskrit scholar implies that Atala might be one of the well-known northern lands, such as Iceland or Greenland, and that the epithet “White Island” refers to its being covered with snow the majority of the time—even the mythological Hyperborea has been suggested. This does not appear to be the case.

Atala and Sveta Dwipa (“White Island”) are not the only names for Atlantis in Sankrit lore. Another name, Saka Dwipa, is used just as often in the Puranas; and according to the Sanskrit Dictionary (1974), Saka Dwipa means “island of fair skinned people.” It is therefore quite possible that “white” refers to the skin color of its inhabitants, rather than to the dominant color of the island—although it should not be assumed that all Atlanteans were white-skinned.

The terms “Atala” and “White Island” are used also by the Bhavishya Purana (4th cent. B.C.). Here it is stated that Samba, having built a temple dedicated to Surya (the Sun), made a journey to Saka Dwipa, located “beyond the salt water” looking for the Magas (magicians), worshippers of the Sun. He is directed in his journey by Suryahimself (i.e., journeys west following the Sun), riding upon Garuda (the flying vehicle of Krishna and Vishnu) he lands at last among the Magas.

The Mahabharata (circa. 600 B.C.) also refers to “Atala, the White Island”, which is described as an “island of great splendour.” It continues: “The men that inhabit that island have complexions as white as the rays of the Moon and they are devoted to Narayana . . . Indeed, the denizens of White Island believe and worship only one God.” (Santi Parva, Section CCCXXXVII)‘…

The Santi Parva also describes Atala as being inhabited by white men who never have to sleep or eat. (Ibid.) Interestingly enough, the Greek historian Herodotus (450 B.C.) describes a tribe of Atlanteans who “never dream and eat no living thing”. (History, Book IV) Can this be coincidence? And just as the god Poseidon is very much involved in the Atlantis story, likewise in the Sanskrit accounts we find Varuna (the Hindu Poseidon) very much involved in Atala.

In other words, Atala, the White Island is remarkably similar to Plato’s Atlantis, even down to its circular capital city, Tripura! Tripura is made in three concentric parts, just as Plato’s Metropolis is divided into three parts by concentric canals. During the war of the gods and Asuras, the wicked cities of the Asuras began to fall, one by one, amidst loud cries of woe: “Burning those Asuras, he [the hero] threw them down into the Western ocean” (Karna Parva, Section XXXIV).

Concerning the “concentric arrangment” of Tripura, a recent archeological discovery of a fortified palace in Bactria, India, known as Dashly-3, turned out to be a concentric 3-ringed structure of the “tripura type”. [Their words, not mine.] The archaeologists, excavating under the auspices of the Archaeological Departments of Pakistan and India (Mahadevan, 15), also state that the Dasyas, the builders of Dashly-3, were “Asura-worshippers”.

In the Surya Siddhanta, an ancient Sanskrit text on astronomy, the translator (W. D. Whitney, 1860) mentions an “island” (dwipa) called Jambu Dwipa, surrounded by rings of alternating land and water. I am tempted to equate Jambu Dwipa with the Atlantean capital, which Plato describes as surrounded by circular canals, “making alternate zones of sea and land” (Critias)…’

To Varuna of Hinduism ,who has an an uncanny resemblance to Atlantis Deities,especially Poseidon.

Varuna’s son, Daksasavarni, is the ninth Manu.

By the semen of Varuna, the great mystic Valmiki took birth from an anthill.

Bhrgu and Valmiki were specific sons of Varuna, whereas Agastya and Vasistha Rsis were the common sons of Varuna and Mitra, the tenth son of Aditi.

Vedic Varuna is sometimes thought to be a reflex of the same Proto-Indo-European theonym as Greek Ouranos, based on similarities between both names and the respective gods’ attributes, but no successful derivation has yet been produced that is consistent with known laws of sound change.

Sage Agastya’s wanderings in Lemuria is well known.

Sage Vasishta,had in all probability accompanied Shiva and Ganesha when they left Indian shores because of a Tsunami,the same time when Satyavrata Manu left for Ayodhya.

The above mentioned facts and Shiva presence from Saudi Arabia,Syria,Lebanon and the matching description of Tripura in Atlantis and in Indian texts compel me to postulate that  Tripura was the capital of Atlantis.

One may recall that the Sumerians called Ayodhya ,their Capital!

As to the location of Atlantis and Tripura as found in Indian texts, I shall write.




Madurai India Atlantis Construction Similar

There were four ancient civilizations in the world.

They were,

The Uighur,


Lemuria, and


Lord Rama,whose ancestor Satyavrata Manu was from Lemuria and he moved to north ,Ayodha, where his son Ikshvaku founded the Ikshvaku dynasty to which Rama belongs.

And the Tamil Chola kings belong to Ikshvaku dynasty.

Lord Rama aligned with the a section of Atlantis clan,Horus to defeat Seth.

This is chronicled in Sumerian history.

Names of Dasaratha,Rama and Bharatha are found in the Sumerian Kings List.

Atlantis was described in detail by Plato.

Shall be writing a series on this shortly.

Madurai city layout.image
Madurai city street. Consruction

Based on his writings and other literary references ,design of Atlantis city has been arrived at.

The general lay out is similar ,if not identical with that of Madurai, Tamil Nadu.

Generally ancient south Indian cities,especially in Tamil Nadu were built in concentric lay outs with the temple at the center.

One can witness this in all major temple towns,Madurai,Srivilliputtur,Srirangam…..

At Madurai the streets surrounding the temple are named after the Tamil months.

Not surprising, considering the fact that Maya,the architect of Delhi was from Atlantis.

This coupled with the emerging Lemuria,the part played by Malayathdwaja Pandya,father of Madurai Meenakshi took part in the Mahabharata battle on the side of Pandavas,Krishna and Arjuna married Pandyan princesses and had children through them,Balarama visited Murugan in the south,Krishna participated in Tamil Poets’ Conclave,Krishna defeated a Pandya King….

Subterranean Library Chamber Ekambareswara Kanchipuram Key To Lemuria MU Atlantis?

The issue daunting the Historians of the West who painstakingly unearth evidence on Lemuria and Atlantis is that, as I observe,  they are unable to corroborate the evidence of these places with records’ ,save Plato’s Atlantis.

Though scholars accept Plato’s works like The Republic,they are reluctant to admit his observations on Atlantis,saying that they need corroborative evidence.

Surprising !

They did not need such evidence for Plato’s other works.

Their effort is restricted by their search of corroboration from the texts in the west,especially the Bible which they consider to be the oldest text.

They also take reference to texts,hieroglyphics from Egypt.

They are probable unaware of the oldest records of India,the Vedas,Puranas,Ramayana and Mahabharata.

Nor are they aware of another ancient language of India which is a mine of historical information.

It is the Tamil language,which is is atleast 20,000 years old.

Ekambareswarar Temple, Kanchipuram,Tamil Nadu India.jpg
Ekambareswarar Temple, Kanchipuram,Tamil Nadu India.

Nor are these researchers aware of the ancient temples of India,some of them 5000 years old.

They have vast information in the form of Epigraphs and writing in ancient Tamil and Grantha script.

What  I am attempting to do,through my blog , is to link and fill in the gaps of these researches,with explanatins from Sanskrit,Tamil Texts and Epigraphy found in the temples.

Also I verify the local legends associated with the Ramayana,Mahabharata,Puranas with the help of scientific tools like Carbon dating,Infra red,Geology,Astronomy and references in foreign classics.

To my surprise most of these so called legends stand the test of science in terms of antiquity and events.

I have been researching into Atlantis,MU,Lemuria,Tamils and the history of India and have published articles.

I was intrigued by the hypothesis of Lemuria,MU and Atlantis had existed together.

Records from Indian texts,Tamil and Sumeria speak of these places having existed.

They speak of four earliest civilizations.



Lemuria and

Lord Rama.

For more details plese read my article Rama dropped Atom Bomb in Harappa.

James Churchward has proposed that the MU civilisation had existed and might have links to Tamils.

I have written on the possibility of a secret chamber in Kanchipuram Ekambareswara temple in Tamil Nadu.

This temple has ten subterranean chambers.

While nine chambers are dedicated to the Rishis,with details about them,the tenth one has writings on them referring to MU.

It may be noted that MU is a prefix in Tamil which denotes antiquity.

The City of Madurai was called Mudur and it referred to old Madurai,Then Madurai which was located somewhere near Madagascar, then a part of Lemuria.

Also the capital of Chera Kings,Vanchi was called Vanchi Mudur which was located in Lemuria and it is not the present Karur ,Tamil Nadu.

Now to Churchward on Mu,Tamils and Kanchipuram Ekambareswara Temple.

Time that the Archaeological department of India and scholars take a seriuos note and investigate.

in the subterranean system there are 10 chambers. In 9 chambers they stored the tablets. In the first 3 chambers the tablets are made fom solid black stone. In the next 3 chambers the tablets are made from gold. In tha last 3 chambers the tablets made from solid silver and brass and an mix of metals wat they callad pachalogha – the so called five holy metals. The 10th chamber is like an small temple with an black Shiva lingam and the statues of the seven holy rishis. In the 9 chambers you find some inscriptions at the walls – they describe the rishis puranas, what means, the live and the deeds of the rishis. I made some pictures from these inscriptions…

Reference and citation.


chamber no. 1 and chamber no. 4 the priest, who guided me down there to to library, allowed me to take some pictures of the tablets. As attachment of this mail you see one tablet from chamber no. 1
At chamber no. 4 the priest only allowed me to take pictures from 2 tablets, not from all this books there. The 2 tablets he showed me, are a ittle bit damaged. But you can see clearly the inscriptions.
The second tablet from chamber no. 4
Athe end of my visit at this subterranean library the priest, who guided me (his name is Pachayappa), presented a small gift to me. This very small tablet is made from brass, in my opinion. I am not very sure, if it was part of the tablets down there at the library of MU or it was made later. But Pachayappa told me, that the inscriptions at these small tablet are some kind of key to the understanding of the inscriptions of the other tablets. This small item is still with me and I am trying to breach its code. But surely I will need a little help.




Lemuria Population 64 Millions?

Lemuria , the sunken continent in the Indian Ocean, which has been considered as a Myth/ legend has made people look up at new evidence.

The Aborigines of of Australia see to have an unknown Genes,


The findings at Poomouhar, Tamil Nadu, the thriving Port city mentioned in Tamil Sangam Classics,Greek Historians, Hindu puranas date it back to 20, 000 years.

Please read my article on this.

Australian aborigines oerform, even today, the Tri Netra (third eye) Dance of Shiva, one of the Trinity of Hinduism.

Theese Aborigines wear Shiva and Vishnu Religious marks .

Sage Agastya is found in New Zealand and he was worshiped there.

The Mu people livedcaround the periphry of this area.

The Mu people were a part of the Tamils.

The Tamil literature speaks of the land south where the first Tamil kings ruled.

It had forty nine lands.

IT had over 40 mountain peaks.

It had therre major rivers.

They were an advanced civilisation and they had conclave of Poets, called Sangam.

These Tamil texts and Puranas  state that Lord Krishna attended this Conclave.

A million year old site belonging to Advanced Tamil civilization has been found near Chennai, Tamil Nadu , in the south of India.

Thiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu is dated at 3.94Billion Years, Tirupati Andhra Pradesh,2100 million years and Jwalapuram Cuddappah in Andhra Pradesh at 75000 years ago.

Tamil ancestry has been found in central and siuth Americas and they celebrate Tamil festivals.

I have provided evidence on these points in my articles on each of these points.

Then there  are the statues in the Easter Island which are yet to be explained.

The directions they face the Navagrahas mentioned in Hinduism.

There are various  theories on Lemuria.

That it represents a higher level of Beings on a different plane of Existence,

Aliens landed and lived there,

Aliens antered the DNA.

The Lemuria was a Tamil land indeed and it sunk, as described in Tamil and foreign records as great flood.

I shall be examining each theory on the basis of available evidence.

That Lemuria existed and had a population of 64 Millions is proposed



Anglo-American explorer, James Churchward was a close friend of Auguste and Alice Le Plongeon. James Churchward, in books such as The Lost Continent of Mu (1931), wrote that the Motherland stretched from the Hawaiian Islands to Fiji and from Easter Island to the Marianas.

Churchward wanted an ancient civilization of his own, and using Le Plongeon’s doubtful methodology set about ‘discovering’ one. His findings were set down in the five main volumes of the Mu series published in from 1926 – 1931. The basic premise was by studying various ancient texts Churchward had discovered the existence of a long lost continent with an advanced civilization that approximately 60,000 years earlier had sunk below the Pacific Ocean after a cataclysmic earthquake. Sixty-four million people allegedly died. The Hawaiian Islands and the Pacific Islands are the remaining mountain peaks of the lost continent.
