Dionysus Greek God Is Shiva Migrated From South India

In Hinduism on February 5, 2015 at 00:09

My studies of the Puranas,Ithihasas,Ramayana, Mahabharata,Astronomical Events mentioned in them, Archeology,Sanskrit and Tamil literature had pointed out to , not ony the Myth of Aryan Invasion Theory,The Dravida-Aryan Divide, but also led me to the fact that Lord Shiva , with His son Ganesha left South India through the Middle east ,Europe, Africa, Americas,before settling down in the Arctic where the Rig Veda was composed.

All because of a Tsunami.

At that time Satyavrata Manu also left for Ayodhya to found the Ikshvaku Dynasty, to which Lord Rama belongs.

The archeological finds throughout the world, od Shiva and His Symbols, confirm my theory.

The Shiva family returned to India through Russia, Kazakhstan, and Persia.

The Greek connection of Shiva.

Hercules is believed to be either Balram or Lord Krishna.-quoted by Megasthenes

Please read my post on this.


And the Pillars of  Hercules are a tribute to Lord Krishna.


Akkian,Flavius Arrianus, the Grecio-Roman Biographer with Alexander, the Great , in His Book, it is also called as Indica like Megasthenes’s, describes the voyage of Alexander to India.

He chronicles  the customs and manners of the people of India.

“he Nysaeans are not an Indian race, but descended from the men who came into India with Dionysus–perhaps from those Greeks who were rendered unfit for service in the wars which Dionysus waged with the Indians. Perhaps also he settled with the Greeks those of the natives who were willing to join his colony. Dionysus named the city itself Nysa, and the land Nysaea, in honour of his nurse Nysa. The mountain near the city, at whose base Nysa was built, is called Meros (thigh) after the misfortune he experienced as soon as he was born. This is the story framed by the poets in regard to Dionysus, and let the writers of legends Grecian and foreign expound it. Among the Assacenians is Massaca, a large city, where also is the stronghold of the land of Assacia; and there is also another large city, Peucelaitis, not far from the Indus. These tribes have been settled west of the Indus as far as the Cophen….


Of the expedition of Dionysus, indeed, the city of Nysa is no mean monument, as also are the mountain Meros, the ivy which grows on this mountain, the Indians themselves also marching into battle to the sound of drums and cymbals, wearing speckled garments like the bacchanals of Dionysus. But of Heracles there are not many memorials. For the statement that Alexander forcibly subdued the rock of Aornus, because Heracles was not able to capture it, seems to me a piece of Macedonian boasting; just as they called the Parapamisus Caucasus, though it has no connection with it. And having observed a certain cave in the land of the Parapamisadians, they said that it was the famous cave of Prometheus, the son of the Titan, in which he was hung for the theft of the fire. And besides, in the land of the Sibians, an Indian race, because they saw the inhabitants clothed in skins, they said that the Sibians were those who had been left behind from the expedition of Heracles. The Sibians also carry cudgels, and the figure of a club was branded upon their oxen; this too they explained to be a commemoration of the club of Heracles. If anyone gives credit to these tales, this must have been another Heracles, neither the Theban, nor the Tyrian, nor the Egyptian; but some great king of a land situated in the interior not far from India.


He says that in ancient times the Indians were nomads, like that section of the Scythians who are not agriculturists, but wandering about on waggons, live at one time in one part of Scythia and at another time in another part, neither inhabiting cities nor consecrating temples to the gods. So the Indians had no cities or temples built for the gods. They clothed themselves in the skins of the wild beasts which they killed, and ate the inner bark of certain trees, which are called tala in the Indian language, and, as upon the tops of palm-trees, there grow upon them things like clews of wool. They also fed upon the flesh of the wild beasts which they caught, eating it raw, until Dionysus came into their country. But when Dionysus came and conquered them, he founded cities and made laws for them, and gave the Indians wine as he had given it to the Greeks. He also gave them seeds and taught them how to sow them in the earth; so that either Triptolemus did not come to this part when he was sent by Demeter to sow corn through the whole earth, or this Dionysus came to India before Triptolemus and gave to the inhabitants the seeds of cultivated crops. Dionysus first taught them to yoke oxen to the plough, and made most of them become husbandmen instead of being nomads, and armed them with martial weapons. He also taught them to worship the gods, and especially himself with the beating of drums and the clashing of cymbals. He taught the Indians the Satyr-dance which among the Greeks is called the cordax, and to let their hair grow long in honour of the god. He also showed them how to wear the turban, and taught them how to anoint themselves with unguents. Wherefore even to the time of Alexander the Indians still advanced into battle with the sound of cymbals and drums.

8. When Dionysus had arranged these affairs and was about to leave India, he appointed as king of the land Spatembas, one of his companions, the man most versed in the mysteries of Bacchus. When this man died his son Boudyas succeeded to his kingdom. The father reigned fifty-two years, and the son twenty years. Cradeuas, the son of Boudyas, succeeded to the throne. From this time for the most part the kingdom passed in regular succession from father to son. If at any time direct heirs were wanting, then the Indians appointed kings according to merit. The Heracles, who according to the current report came to India is said, among the Indians themselves, to have sprung from the earth. This Heracles is especially worshipped by the Sourasenians, an Indian nation, in whose land are two great cities, Methora and Cleisobora, and through it flows the navigable river Jobares. Megasthenes says, as the Indians themselves assert, that this Heracles wore a similar dress to that of the Theban Heracles. Very many male children, but only one daughter were born to him in India, for he married many women. The daughter’s name was Pandaea, and the land where she was born, and over which Heracles placed her as ruler, was named Pandaea after her. From her father she received 500 elephants, 4,000 cavalry, and 130,000 infantry. Certain of the Indians tell the following story about Heracles, that when he had passed over every land and sea and had rid them of every evil beast, he found in the sea a woman’s ornament, such as up to the present day those who bring wares from India to us still buy with zeal and carry away. In former times the Greeks and now the Romans who are fortunate and wealthy with still greater zeal buy what is called in the Indian tongue the marine pearl. The ornament seemed so fine to Heracles that he collected pearls like this from all the sea and brought them to India to be an adornment for his daughter. Megasthenes says that the mussel of it is caught in nets, and that many of them live in the sea at the same place, like bees, and that the pearl-mussels have a king or queen as bees have. Whoever has the good fortune to capture the king, easily throws the net around the rest of the swarm of pearlmussels, but if the king escapes the fishermen, the others are no longer to be caught by them. The men allow the flesh of those which are caught to rot, but they use the shell for ornament; for among the Indians the pearl is worth thrice its weight in refined gold. This metal is also dug up in India.

Pandea referred to here is the daughter of Lord Krishna/Balrama.

Please check my post on this.

It is probable that Shiva had traveled through Greece before reaching the Arctic and returned to India.

This is what Arrian is referring to repeatedly as Dionysus having invaded India.

And note the symbols, clothes.

” was under the impression that Dionysus was the Greek precursor of Krishna. But, deeper analysis of character and life events of Dionysus shows that he was the Greek format of Hindu God Shiva. Now, let us consider some of the characters of Dionysus. Generally he is known as the wine God, similarly Shiva is a kind of vagabond with drinking habits. Consider the strange animals that pulls the cart of Dionysus and strange creatures that follow him. They look similar to “shiva Ganas”, who come all kind of shapes and animal shapes. (These animal figures –themselves may be indicating various constellations —with animal motifs)’

Curd Pot Uri With Tamil Inscription Red Sea Port I BC

In Hinduism on February 1, 2015 at 10:27

I have posted articles on the facts that,

The Tamils had a long and continuous interaction with Sanatana Dharma from the Vedic Times,

Tamil Kings were present during the Swayamvara of Damayanti,Sita and Draupadi,

Pot with Tamil Inscription I BC in Red Sea,jpg

Pot with Tamil Inscription I BC in Red Sea

Arjuna married a Pandyan Princess,

Arjuna and Balarama were ona Pilgrimage to South India, with the latter worshiping Parashurama,

Krishna married a Pandyan princess and had a daughter by her.

Krishna attended the Tamil Sangam at Thenmadurai, whichwas later consumed bya Tsunami,

The Chera King Chearalaathan fed both the Kaurava and Pandava Army during the Mahabharata War.

And much more.

So it is no surprise that Tamil wherever Sanatana Dharma went!


It is recorded that the Jews were the descendants of the Yadavas, Lord krishna’s Clan.

Interesting that The Jews were the descendants of the Yadavas, Lord Krishna’s Clan.

Twenty two tribes left India after the Mahabharata War.”

Now to Tamil artifact being found in Egypt.

A broken storage jar with inscriptions in Tamil Brahmi script has been excavated at Quseir-al-Qadim, an ancient port with a Roman settlement on the Red Sea coast of Egypt. This Tamil Brahmi script has been dated to first century B.C. One expert described this as an “exciting discovery.”
The same inscription is incised twice on the opposite sides of the jar. The inscription reads paanai oRi, that is, pot (suspended) in a rope net.
An archaeological team belonging to the University of Southampton in the U.K., comprising Prof. D. Peacock and Dr. L. Blue, who recently re-opened excavations at Quseir-al-Qadim in Egypt, discovered a fragmentary pottery vessel with inscriptions.
Dr. Roberta Tomber, a pottery specialist at the British Museum, London, identified the fragmentary vessel as a storage jar made in India.
Iravatham Mahadevan, a specialist in Tamil epigraphy, has confirmed that the inscription on the jar is in Tamil written in the Tamil Brahmi script of about first century B.C.
In deciphering the inscription, he has had the benefit of expert advice from Professor Y. Subbarayalu of the French Institute of Pondicherry, Professor K. Rajan of Central University, Puducherry and Professor  V. Selvakumar, Tamil University, Thanjavur.
According to Mr. Mahadevan, the inscription is quite legible and reads: paanai oRi, that is, ‘pot (suspended in) a rope net.’ The Tamil word uRi, which means rope network to suspend pots has the cognate oRi in Parji, a central Dravidian language, Mr. Mahadevan said. Still nearer, Kannada has oTTi, probably from an earlier oRRi with the same meaning.
The word occurring in the pottery inscription found at Quseir-al-Qadim can also be read as o(R)Ri as Tamil Brahmi inscriptions generally avoid doubling of consonants.
Earlier excavations at this site about 30 years ago yielded two pottery inscriptions in Tamil Brahmi belonging to the first century A.D.
Another Tamil Brahmi pottery inscription of the same period was found in 1995 at Berenike, also a Roman settlement, on the Red Sea coast of Egypt, Mr. Mahadevan said.”
Uri is a Pot which is hung by ropes to the ceiling for keeping Curds at Homes even today, especially in Brahmins Home.”
Uri Adithal.jpg

English: this game used to play in any temple functions in Tamilnadu areas, which is called in tamil “URI ADITHAL”

Uri Adithal is a sport in Tamil Nadu  Temple Festivals when one is asked to hit a Pot filled with Money , either with eyes open or blid folded
Legend has it that Lord Krishna used to follow this method to get Curds Milk, Butter from the Home of the Yadavas.

Rathyatra In Babylon For Marduk With Garuda’s Wing

In Hinduism on January 26, 2015 at 09:30

Proof is piling up on the spread of Sanatana Dharma spread throughout the world.

I am of the view that a group of people from the South of India left because of a Tsunami.

One,led by Satyavrat Manu , ancestor of Manu, left for Ayodhya to founded the Ikshvaku Dynasty.

The other led by Shiva and Ganesha left through the middle east before settling down in the Arctic, where the Rig Veda was composed.

Then a part of the group left and came back to settle down in the Sarasvati valley through the Khyber Pass.

Ancient Inscriptions reveal that the Babylonians celebrated an annual Rathayatra Cart Festival over 2,500 years ago. In fact this festival is regarded as one of the earliest recorded such celebrations known to history. 
During this 11 day festival “the statues were cleaned and received new dresses. On the next day, the festival reached its climax when all statues were brought out from their rooms and shown to the Babylonian populace. The gods started a tour through the city to the river. Here, they boarded a small fleet, that brought them to the house of the New year. The king himself guided the Supreme God Marduk, (who rests upon a winged serpent Garuda-Ananta). On the last part of the route, the ships were placed on chariots, so that the gods were driven to the house of the New year. This festival was called Akitu by the ancient Babylonians and continued for centuries not only in Babylon but in Palmyra and the temple of Baal was inaugurated on the same date as Akitu. At the beginning of the third century AD , it was still celebRated in Emessa in Syria, to honor the god Elagabal; the Roman emperor Heliogabalus (218-222) even introduced the festival in Italy.”

Marduk .”Elam r (30)” by user:Rmashhadi – user:Rmashhadi. Licensed under Public Domain via Wikimedia Commons – http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Elam_r_(30).JPG#mediaviewer/File:Elam_r_(30).JPG

Research shows that today a very similar festival is celebrated annually in Jagannath Puri, Odisha in Eastern India. It is the annual Jagannath Rathayatra Festival in which hundreds of thousands of people gather to celebrate and honor Lord Jagannath, Subhadra and Baladeva.
This evidence is yet another reminder that it is Hindu India’s living ancient culture and traditions that allow us an accurate window into the past. To Know Vedic India is to Know the Ancient World in all its mystery and wonder.
It is also interesting to note that Krishna’s city of Dwaraka and Babylon both have the same meaning. Dwarka means “gateway to the Supreme” or “city of gates,” and Babylon was called Babilli in early 2nd millennium BC, meaning “Gate of God” or “Gateway of the God.”

Marduk (Sumerian spelling in Akkadian: AMAR.UTU 𒀫𒌓 “solar calf”; perhaps from MERI.DUG; Biblical Hebrew מְרֹדַךְ Merodach; GreekΜαρδοχαῖος,[1] Mardochaios) was the Babylonian name of a late-generation god from ancient Mesopotamia and patron deity of the city of Babylon, who, when Babylon became the political center of the Euphrates valley in the time of Hammurabi (18th century BCE), started to slowly rise to the position of the head of the Babylonian pantheon, a position he fully acquired by the second half of the second millennium BCE. In the city of Babylon, he resided in the temple Esagila.

According to The Encyclopedia of Religion, the name Marduk was probably pronounced Marutuk. The etymology of the nameMarduk is conjectured as derived from amar-Utu (“bull calf of the sun god Utu”). The origin of Marduk’s name may reflect an earlier genealogy, or have had cultural ties to the ancient city of Sippar (whose god was Utu, the sun god), dating back to the third millennium BCE.

Manu Is Noah Yayati Yadava Yehuda, Judaism Fom Hinduism?

In Hinduism on January 21, 2015 at 18:27

Interesting that The Jews were the descendants of the Yadavas, Lord Krishna’s Clan.

Twenty two tribes left India after the Mahabharata War.

and anarchy.’

Star of David in Israel Homes.jpg

Plant formation of Star of David in a Israili city (Compare & notice the similarity with alpana done in front of the Indian houses)

Of the 22 tribes that left the region in quick succession, the tem that preceded North met with disaster and perished.

Out of the remaining 12 a few families dropped off and settled down in regions currently known as Iraq, Syria, Palestine, Egypt Greece and Russia.
That great exodus took place 5,743 years ago. The Passover year which the Jews commemorate provides a tally of the period elapsed from the time they left India. … One of their monarchs was Solomon.

Pococke observes: ” That India was the point whence came the gold and the luxurious appliances of Solomon’s court is clear; both the length of the voyage, the nature of the commercial imports and the original land of the
Phoenician’s establish this fact. It ws a coasting voyage of three years.” India in Greece, by E. Pococke )

Pococke adds: ” When Judah did evil in the sight of the Lord, and built them high places, and images, and goves, on every high hill, and under every tree, the object was Bal; and the pillar was his symbol. It was on this altar that they burned incense, and sacrificed the calf on the 15th day of the month, the sacred amavas of the Hindus. The calf of Israel is the bull of Balesar or Ishwar.” The Bal alias Balesar is Balkrishna alias Baleshwar, i.e., the Divine Child Krishna.

The name Solomon is a Sanskrit term. The great poet Kalidas describes King Dushyant as ‘ Shalmanav,’ i.e., a tall, hefty person with an impressive personality. The term Solomon is that Sanskrit word with the vowel ” a
rounded in pronunciation as ” O “.The Golden Calf

The image of the golden calf which one often hears of in the history of the Jews was the calf which Lord Krishna leaned against when he used to play the flute while grazing cows. …

At that age, Lord Krishna was tall enough to lean only against a calf and not a cow.’..


Star of David.


‘The so-called Jewish Star which is the emblem of the Jews is a Tantric, Vedic symbol. It consists of two, interlocked triangles with the apex of one facing North and the other South. This symbol is drawn in front of every
orthodox Hindu home in stone-powder design every morning after the house is washed. The desing/drawing is known as Rangawali alias Rongoli. Even its name David is the Sanskrit word Devi, i.e., ” bestowed by the Mother
Goddess.” The so-called Humayun tomb building in Delhi, which was a Goddess temple, is inlaid with those emblems on the exterior, upper portions of its walls.

The Five Races (Phylum) of Noah (Nu). Of the five races, Yadu, Turvasa, Druhyus, Anu, and Puru, the only one I’ll deal with are the Yadu and their companions, the Yadavas. Yadava is a contraction of Yadu plus Deva, meaning ‘The Yadu Demi–Gods or People of Yah.’ It was through them that Lord Krishna, God Shiva, and Buddha came to earth to save mankind from time to time, as follows:

Nephilim/Navalin > Noah (Manu) >Jyapeti (Japhet or Yayati) > Yadu > Yadava > Jews/Yahuda.

Yayati/Jyapeti/Japhet was at one and the same time Dyauspitar (Jupiter), Dyus (Zeus), Vishnu or Lord Krishna, Shiva, and Buddha.

Notice that the Nephilim/Navalin did not detach themselves from their bodies and move into those of the Yadus and Yadavas. They could enter this world only via the bloodstreams of the Yadu and Yadava (Yahudas or Jews). For that, they had to breed with the daughters of men, leaving their seed in the wombs of these daughters. The closer people were tied genetically to the Yadu and Yadava, the easier it was to get a correct genetic match for producing a fetus capable of hosting a true Son of the Unbegotten. Any of the other races could produce saints but not saviors like Jesus and Krishna. For this reason, Lord Krishna and Jesus were related by blood ties. Krishna was a Yadu Kuru. Jesus was a Yehudi Koresh”


‘The Biblical name ‘Kinneret’, which is the more ancient name and precedes the name ‘Gannesaret’. It  comes from the Hebrew word ‘kinnor’ meaning ‘harp’ – which is regarded as the ‘instrument of music in heaven’. The lake is supposed to be shaped like a ‘harp’. In Sanskrit too ‘kinnar’ (किन्नर) means ‘heavenly music’. Also, the ‘kinnars’ are a ‘heavenly race’ of men mentioned throughout the Ramayana. The female counterpart of the ‘kinnars’ were the ‘apsaras’. In the Ramayana the ‘kinnars’ are always mentioned along with the ‘apsaras’. So if there was a ‘Kinneret’, was there a lake dedicated to the ‘apsaras’ too? The Bible does mention a lake by the name ‘Asphar’ in Israel, also the Dead Sea was known as ‘Ashphalites’, though now the name is connected to ‘asphalt’ – though there is no known etymological source of ‘asphalt’ and is credited to non-Greek, non-Latin unknown source.

Then there is the Susita River, also now called the Hippos. ‘Susit’ (सुसिता) means ‘white’ in Sanskrit. There is also a town by the name ‘Susit’ in Israel. The list is endless.’

Just to give you an idea of how low mankind had fallen after the Great Flood in Altai, Siberia, read the Hindu account of Noah, taken from the Matsya Purana:

‘To Satyavarman, that sovereign of the whole earth, were born three sons: the eldest Shem; then Sham; and thirdly, Jyapeti by name.‘They were all men of good morals, excellent in virtue and virtuous deeds, skilled in the use of weapons to strike with, or to be thrown; brave men, eager for victory in battle.

‘But Satyavarman, being continually delighted with devout meditation, and seeing his sons fit for dominion, laid upon them the burdens of government.

‘Whilst he remained honouring and satisfying the gods, and priests, and kine, one day, by the act of destiny, having drunk mead,

‘Became senseless and lay asleep naked. Then, he was seen by Sham, and by him were his two brothers called:

‘To whom he said, ‘What now has befallen? In what state is this our sire?’ By these two he was hidden with clothes, and called to his senses again and again.

‘Having recovered his intellect, and perfectly knowing what had passed, he cursed Sham, saying, ‘Thou shalt be the servant of servants.’

‘And since thou wast a laugher in their presence, from laughter thou shalt acquire a name. Then he gave Sham the wide domain on the south of the snowy mountains.

‘And to Jyapeti he gave all the north of the snowy mountains; but he, by the power of religious contemplation, attained supreme bliss.’


Jehovah is an anglicized representation of Hebrew the name that, according to the Bible, God revealed to his people,also dubbed “the proper name of God”. The earliest available Latin text to use a vocalization similar to Jehovah dates from the 13th century. It was certainly not the historical vocalization of the Tetragrammaton at the time of the redaction of the Pentateuch (6th century BCE), at which time the most likely vocalization was YAHWEH. The historical vocalization was lost because in Second temple Judaism, during the 3rd to 2nd centuries BCE, the pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton came to be avoided, being substituted with Adonai “my Lords”. Others say that it is the pronunciation Yahweh that is testified in both Christian and pagan texts of the early Christian era.Some argue that Jehovah is preferable to Yahweh, based on their conclusion that the Tetragrammaton was likely tri-syllabic originally, and that modern forms should therefore also have three syllables.’
