11000 Years Old Tamil Port Poompuhar Confirms Manu Migration

In Hinduism, Tamils on March 1, 2015 at 06:21

The more one digs deeper into  Indian /Tamil History, I no longer consider them as Legends or Mythologies as there is enought evidence on the ground in India and abroad to warrant this conclusion, one is amazed as to how Sanatana Dharma and Tamil were intertwined and how accurate are the Hindu Puranas.

Wharf At Poompuhar, Tamil Nadu

An old port  Poompuhar, mentioned in early Tamil Classics, especially in detail in the Silappadikaram, has been found and it reveals a Man made Port of 11000 Years!

Poompuhar was a bustling port of the Chera Kings of then Tamil Nadu and was a centre of Tamil Culture where A festival of Indra was celebrated annually,

It was called Indra Vizha, The Festival of Indra. more as Thanks giving to the God of Thunder Indra for granting Rains.

This Poompuhar was als a Ship Building Yard where the Sultans of Constantinople had their Ships built, observes Ptolemy

Please read my Post Naval Department of Tamils Ancient India.

Now the Ikshvaku Dysaty, of which Lord Rama is a descendant, lists the Kings of the Dynasty.

I am providing a Link to my article at the end of this Post.

Sixty kings preceded Lord Rama.

In Hindu Puranas the Full Life of an individual is 120 years(I am not, now taking into account the legend of Treta Yuga where Human beings lived longer).

The father of Ikshvaku, Satyavrata Manu, also called Vaivasthava Manu, migrated from the South to Aydhya and his son Ikshvaku founded the Ikshvaku Dynasty.

Manu left because of a Tsunami.

The city of Poompuhar which is dated now as being 11000 years old was deluged by a Tsunami.

This is echoed in the great flood that devoured the Atlantis/

Please read my post on Gondwana.

This proves that the expression of Great Ocean Surge, Kadal Kol, was not a figment of Tamil Poets and Sanskrit’s imagination as the Poompuhar evidence and the mention of Satyavrata Manu having migrated to Ayodhya.

A difference of about 2200 years for such a huge time scale may be attributed to my wrong calculation or the dating of Poompuhar may have tolerance in dates..

Lord Rama’s Lineage.Ikshvaku Dynasty.

  • Ikshwaku – Manu’s successor was the founder of the Ikshvaku dynasty. Ikshwakufathered 101 children of whom most illustrious were Vikukshi, Nimi and Danda. Ikshvaku’s 50 children were protector of northern countries while 48 were prince of southern countries. Nimi was ruler of Mithila region and started the kingdom of Janaka. After death of Ikshwaku, his son Sasada succeeded him. According to Jain sources, Ikshvaku was Rishab Deva.
  • Sasada – Named Vikuksi at birth, he was called Sasada after eating Hare-meat meant for a rite himself (Sasada means Hare-eater). Though abandoned by Ikshvaku, he became the successor due to Vasistha. Vikuksi had 500 sons who guarded northern regions led by Sakuni and 58 sons who guarded southern regions led by Visati. The Brahma Purana says Sasada’s son was Kakutstha and Kakutstha’s son was Anenas. However, the Vishnu Purana says Sasada’s son was Puranjaya (Paranjaya in Shrimad Bhagavatham) and Puranjaya’s son was Anenas. From Puranjaya / Kakutstha and Anenas the lineage is as follows:
  • Puranjaya (Vishnu Purana and Shrimad Bhagavatham / Kakutstha (Brahma Purana)
  • Anenas
  • Prithu
  • Viswagaswa, rendered Virasva and Vistarasva by Brahmapurana.
  • Ardra
  • Yuvanaswa
  • Srasvata – He founded the city of Srasvati.
  • Vrihadaswa (also spelled Brihad-Ashwa).
  • Kuvalayswa – He defeated demon Asura Dhundu. His sons (21000 in number) perished except three – Dridhaswa, Chadraswa and Kapliswa. Haryyaswa, the eldest son of these three succeeded to the throne.
  • Haryyaswa
  • Nikumbha
  • Sanhatswa – rendered Samhatasva in Brahma Purana. He had 2 sons, Akrasava and Krisasva, and a daughter Haimavati whose son was Prasenajit. The Brahma Purana proceeds with the genealogy tables from Prasenajit with the same names as in Vishnu Purana and Shrimad Bhagavatam below. However, since Prasenajit is the son of Haimavati in Brahma Purana, this would make the line to have descended from Haimavati (a female) as per Brahma Purana.
  • Krisaswa – The Vishnu Purana and Shrimad Bhagavatam says Prasenajit was Krisasva’s son.
  • Prasenajit married Gauri. As per Brahmapurana, he had 2 sons Yuvanaswa and Mandhatri. However, as per SB and Vishnu Purana, Mandhatri was Yuvanaswa’s son.
  • Yuvanaswa (he was second Yuvanaswa)- According to Vishnu Puarana, Yuvanaswa had no children, so the sages, took pity on Yuvanaswa and instituted a Yagya to help him procure progeny. One night, Yuvanaswa feeling thirsty and not wanting to disturb anybody, went in search of water. In darkness, he accidentally drank the consecrated water. In the morning the sages found the vessel containing the consecrated water to be empty and pronounced that a mighty son will be born to the queen who has drunk this water. Then Yuvanaswa told the sages about he having drunk the water. Accordingly, Yuvanaswa conceived a child in his belly. Upon birth of a male child, he was worried as to who would nurse the child. Lord Indra appeared and said – Mam Dhyasti i.e. I would be his nurse, and hence the boy was named Mandhatri.
  • Mandhatri – He married Chaitarathi / Bindumati, daughter of Sasabindu. He is supposed to be a mighty monarch who conquered seven continent and bought them under his dominion. A verse in Vishnu Purna is translated as “From the rising to the going down of the sun, all that is irradiated by his light, is the laand of Mandhatri* As per Brahmapurana he had 2 sons, Purukutsa and Mucukunda; and Trasdasya was the son of Purukutsa. From Purukuta the line follows in the same manner as SB and Vishnu Purana. However, SB and Vishnu Purana provide additional names between Mandhatri and Purukutsa as below:
  • Ambrisha (son of Yuvanaswa)
  • Yuvanaswa (third)
  • Purukutsa and Harita
  • Trasadasya (Son of Purukutsa and Narmada). According to Brahmapurana Narmada was Trasadasyu’s wife. One Kurusravana is described as the son of Trasadasyu in Rigveda 10.33 and hence Keith supposes that the Kurus existed in the Rg-Veda.[6] It remains a controversy as to whether Vedic literature knows of an enmity between the Kurus and the Pancalas, which we know of in the Mahabharata. Trasadasyu’s son was Sambuta.
  • Sambhuta
  • Anaranya – He was supposedly slain by Ravana.
  • Prishadaswa
  • Haryyaswa
  • Sumanas
  • Tridhanwan. In Brahmapurana, Tridhanwan is posited as the son of Sambuta, and the names in between Sambhuta and Tridhanwan as provided by SB and Vishnupurana are absent.
  • Trayyaruna
  • Satyavarta (also known as Trishanku). He was banished by his father Trayaruna and went to live with Svapakas. He killed Vasistha‘s cow. Brahmpurana says Vishwamitra made him ascend to heaven with his physical body.
  • Harishchandra. Also called Traishankava as the son of Trisanku.
  • Rohitaswa, also called Rohita.
  • Harita (Second Harita)
  • Chunchu, also spelled Chanchu, Cancu, Chamchu, Campa. Manusmrithi mentions Chenchu who have been explored for their links with the tribe Andhras
  • Vijaya
  • Ruruka
  • Vrika
  • Bahu (also known as Bathuka) – His kingdom was overrun by neighbouring tribe of Haihayas and Talajangha. He was expelled to the jungle with his queens where Sage Aurva gave them shelter. As per Brahmapurana, Bahu was not very righteous. One of his queens, Yadavi, gave birth to Sagara together with poison (gara).
  • Sagara – he had 6001 sons. Sagara recaptured his father’s kingdom and defeated the tribes of Haiheyas, Talajhanghas, Sakas, Pahlavas and Paradas. He shaved off the hair of Sakas halfway, that of Yavanas and Kambhojas totally, the Paradas had to wear their hair loose, and the Pahlavas had to wear moustaches. All of the following had to give up recitation; and were deprieved of their Kshatriya-hood and their dharma: Sakas, Kambhojas, Yavanas, Paradas, Konisarpas (Kalasarpas), Mahishakas, Cholas and Keralas. Sagara performed Ashvamedha and the horse disappeared near the coast of the South-eastern ocean. There they found Sage Kapila resting. According to the Vishnu Purana, Sagara’s sons killed Kapila. According to the Brahma Purana, Kapila is an avatara of Vishnu and burnt up Sagara’s sons and spared 4 of them—Barhiketu, Suketu, Dharmaratha, Panchananda. Then Kapila blessed Sagara, who went on to perform 100 Asvamedhas and begot 60,000 sons. One of the sons, named Panchajana entered the brilliance of Narayana and became King. His son Amsumat succeeded him.
  • Ansumat – the grandson of Sagara and son of Asmanjas / Panchajana.
  • Dilīpa.
  • Bhagiratha – Bhagiratha bought the river Ganges to earth from Heaven.
  • Sruta
  • Nabhaga
  • Ambarisha
  • Sindhudwipa
  • Ayutaswa
  • Rituparna, a friend of Nala.
  • Sarvakama
  • Sudasa, supposedly a friend of Indra.
  • Saudasa (also known as Mitrasaha, Kalmshapada and Kamlasapada Saudasa).

After Saudasa, the Brahmapurana gives the descent until Raghu as follows:

  • Saudasa
  • Sarvakarman
  • Anaranya
  • Nighna
  • Anamitra and Raghu
  • Dulidaha, the son of Anamitra
  • Dilipa
  • Raghu

After Saudasa, the Vishnupurana gives the descent until Raghu as follows:

  • Saudasa
  • Asmaka
  • Mulaka –  (also derogatorily called Narikavacha (one who uses ladies for armour) since he was surrounded and concealed by women when his enemies came searching for him). [In present times Mulaka is (1) name of a jangam tribe in Andhra Pradesh that claims to be Kapus / Balijas; and (2) alternate name used by Mulakanadu Brahmins ]
  • Dasratha (he was not the father of Rama)
  • Viswasaha
  • Khatwanga or Dileepa
  • Dirghabahu
  • Raghu

After Raghu, all the puranas give the descent as follows:

  • Aja, son of Raghu.
  • Dasaratha – He was father of Rama.
  • Rama

Ramayana Describes Cook Lake Pukaki Pacific Ring Of Fire New Zealand

In Hinduism on February 28, 2015 at 08:24

I have mentioned in an earlire post , while wrting on the references found in the Ramayana, that if one wahents to find where the Geographical locations of the world were, one has to refer Sugreeva’s direction to this Vanara Sena, charged with the mission of looking out fot Sita, who was abducted.

His directions are so clear that we can even today identify the Nazca Lines, Peru, Siberian cities, Java,Australia to refer to a few.

Now to the reference of New Zealand in the Ramayana by Valmiki.

I have earlier written on the Maori Indins of New Zealand being influenced by Sanatan Dharma and how ancient tribes of Australia engage themselves in the Third Eye dance of Shiva.

While directing the Vanara Senas, Sugreeva advises them, after crossing Java, to look for a sea with red and yellow water.

Island in Coral Sea,Image. Lady Musgrave Island.jpg

Lady Musgrave island, Coral Sea.

This is the Coral Sea of Australia.

 

Valmiki describes that after crossing this huge island (Shalmali Dwipa/Austalia), Mount Rishabha (ऋषभ)  looks like a ‘White cloud with a pearly necklace of waves rippling on the shores below‘.
Near to that is the Sudharshana Lake with ‘silvery lotuses which have fibrils of gold‘ and where ‘kingly swans scamper around‘.
Valmiki might be referring to Mount Cook & Lake Pukaki of New Zealand,

Ring of Fire.

Ring of Fire.Image.jpg

The Ring of Fire is a string of volcanoes and sites of seismic activity, or earthquakes, around the edges of the Pacific Ocean. Deep ocean trenches and high mountain ranges are also part of the Ring of Fire.
Map courtesy USGS

* valmiki correctly describes as resembling a ‘Horse Face’

The Ring of Fire is an area where a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean. In a 40,000 km (25,000 mi) horseshoe shape, it is associated with a nearly continuous series of oceanic trenches, volcanic arcs, and volcanic belts and/or plate movements. It has 452 volcanoes and is home to over 75% of the world’s active and dormant volcanoes.[1] It is sometimes called the circum-Pacific belt.(wiki)

 

Valmiki describes the Ring of Fire thus,

Valmiki says that the ‘vanaras’ would pass the ‘fantastically refulgent fire resembling the face of a horse’ (Verse 4-48).

“There exists a fantastically refulgent Fire in the form of Horse’s Face that originated from the anger of Sage Aurasa. The victuals to that Fire is said to be that highly speedy waves of the ocean, together with all of the mobile and sessile beings of the world at the close of each Era. [4-40-48b, 49a]

Aurasa derives from the word uuru, meaning ‘the thigh.’ The mother this sage hid him under her thigh when some kings came to kill, as such he got this name. Then with vengeance this sage started to burn the world with his yogic fire, but his manes came to him to pacify and asked him to release his yogic fire in oceanic water. When he did so, that fire remained underwater, ready to emerge from a cavity like that of a she-horse’s mouth, from beneath the ocean from the South Pole. This fire is called vaDaba agni, orbaDaba anala , referred here as Horse’s Face. At the time of yuga anta, End of Era, that fire emerges out, and the whole creation, with all its sessile and mobile beings, becomes its fuel, as said in next verse. This episode is detailed in aadi parva , First Canto, Maha Bharata.

Nineteen Feet Sleeping Rama

In Hindusim on February 25, 2015 at 19:19

It is very rare to see Lord Rama in a sleeping posture.

I am aware that there is Rama in Dharpa Sayanam near Ramanathapuram, Tamil Nadu.

It is said that Lord Rama was awaiting the arrival of the Lord of Oceans, Varuna, to seek his permission to build the bridge to cross over to Lanka.

Thee is another temple, Vengampatti, near Panruti,Tamil Nadu in Venugopalaswamy Temple.

In th temple dedicated to Venugopalaswamy (Krishna), a separate Sanctum is provided for Lord Rama.

Lord Rama is in a sleeping posture.

The Idol is about 19 feet in length.

Seven Hooded Snake, is found  as an Umbrella to Him.

Legend has it that, while Rama was returning to Ayodhya,on the request of the Vaikanasa Rishis to give darshan to them Lord Rama graced the place with His presence with Sita, Lakshmana and Hanuman.

Lakshmana , in his original form as Adisesha, appears as the Seven hooded Snake.

 

Venugopalaswamy with his consorts Rukmini and Sathyabhama is present in a separate Sanctum.

There is also this legend that Lord Shiva rested here after becoming tired of running away from Bhasmasura, during Mohini Avatar.

The Mohini Idol is placed in a nearby temple as this temple was in disrepair.

Tamil Kings In Mahabharata

In Hinduism on February 25, 2015 at 10:43

Tamil and Sanatana Dharma are so intermingled that one finds numerous references to The Tamils and  Tamil Kings in the Rig Veda, Ramayana, Mahabharata and other Puranas.

Ramayana mahabharata Dynasty Chart. image.png

Ramayana Mahabhrata Dynastie. Click to Enlarge.

I have written quite a few articles on this.

The Chola Kings trace their ancestry to the Solar Dynasty.

Chera King Udiyan Cheralaathan fed both the Kaurava and Pandya armies.

Krishna killed a Pandyan King(5:48)

Chera and Chola Kings were defeated by Krishna (7:11)

King Sarangathdwaja wanted to attack Dwaraka to avenge his father’s Death, the Pandya King,  after obtaining weapons from Bhisma, Drona, Balarama and Kripa.

However wiser counsel prevailed and he dropped the idea.

Later he fought alongside the side of the Pandavas against Drona(7:23).

He was rate as an Athiratha by Bhishma( (5,172)

When the mighty Pandya, that foremost of all wielder of weapons, has been slain in battle by the Pandavas, what can it be but destiny?(9:2)

Pandya, who dwelt on the coast-land near the sea, came accompanied by troops of various kinds to Yudhishthira, the king of kings (5:19). There hath come Pandya. Remarkably heroic and endued with prowess and energy that have no parallel, he is devoted to the Pandava cause. (5:22).

Pandya was  in the Rajasuya ceremony of Pandava King Yudhisthira.

 

The Kings of Chera and Pandya, brought numberless jars of gold filled with fragrant sandal juice from the hills of Malaya, and loads of sandal and aloe wood from the Dardduras hills, and many gems of great brilliancy and fine cloths inlaid with gold.

Singhalas gave those best of sea-born gems called the lapis lazuli, and heaps of pearls also, and hundreds of coverlets for elephants (2:51).(2:36,43).

Draupadi Swayamvara.

Pandya King took part in the  event Panchala princess Draupadi’s Swayamvara (MBh 1:189)

 

 

 

Indus Valley Harappan Writing Found Hampi Karnataka

In Hinduism on February 25, 2015 at 08:42

I have often wondered about the antiquity of the South of India,. called Dravida Desa, the Ancient Langauge Tamil which is often quoted by the Vedas and Puranas and tamil Kings being mentioned in the Ithihasaas ,Ramayana and Mahabharata.

Rig Veda refers to Pearls, Sandalwood,Akhil( a type of Incense wood),Elephants and intricate silk from the Dravida desa,pointing out the Chera Kingdom, now called Kerala, which was once a part of the Tamil Chera Kingdom.

There is also this reference of Viswamitra banishing his sons to Dravida Desa.

Their descendant, Apasthamba compiled the Apasthamba Sutra, incorporating Tamil practices into Vedic Culture.

Indus Valley Harappan Inscrption found in HampiImage.jpg

Indus Valley Harappan Inscrption found in Hampi,Karnataka.

Tamil Records show that Lord Krishna attendd the Tamil Poets’ Conclave, He married a Pandyan Princess and had a Daughter through her.

Arjuna performed Tirta Yatra, Pilgrimage to South and married a Pandyan Princess.

He had a son through her , Babruvahana, who was the only one to defeat Arjuna and killed him(Arjuna was revived by Krishna)

Parashurama created what is Now Kerala .

Balarama visited the Dravida Desa and worshiped Lord Subrahmanya, worshiped there as Murugan.

Chera King Udiyan Cheralaathan  and another Pandyan King participated in the Kurukshetra War of Mahabharata.

While Udiyan Ceralaathan fed both the Kaurava and Pandava armies during the war and performed Sraddha for the slain in the Mahabharata war,a Pandyan King Darshak fought on the side of the Pandavas.

Lord Krishna  fought with a Pandya King and killed him.

There are references in the Bhavatham and Tamil Classics that during one of the Tsunamis,Satyavrata Manu, the ancestor of Lord Rama migrated to South and his son Ikshvaku founded the Ikshvaku dynasty.

The Chola Kings trace their Lineage to the Solar Dynasty of Rama and one of their early Kings called Sibi belonged to Ikshvaku Dynasty.

Mahabharata and Raghuvamsa of Kalidasa record this.

The archeological finding in Arikkamedu in Pondicherry and a Vedic Homa Kunda is found with references to Vedic Rites in Kanya Kumari dating back to 280BC.

More archeological finds are reported from Tamil Nadu linking Sanatana Dharma and  the Tamils.

Tamil Brahmi script was found in Harappa.

Now comes the startling find.

Drawings of the Indus Valley Scripts are found in Hampi, Karnataka!

 

The writing system of the Indus Valley Civilization is not deciphered and it still remains a mystery. All attempts to decipher it have failed. This is one of the reasons why the Indus Valley Civilization is one of the least known of the important early civilizations of antiquity.

On the goddess Kotamma temple woollen market way there is a rocky roof shelter for shepherds and sheep to stay at night up to morning.

The sentence emerged after a set of 19 drawing and pictographs discovered on a hilltop in Hampi (Karnataka, India) were deciphered using root morphemes of Gondi Tribe language.

Eleven of the Hampi pictographs resemble those of the Indus valley civilisation. This innocuous sounding statement could actually be a revolutionary find linking the Gond or Gondi tribe to the Indus Valley civilisation.

The Gondi people are a Dravidian people of central India, spread over the states of Madhya Pradesh, eastern Maharashtra (Vidarbha), Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Telangana and Western Odisha. With over four million people, they are the largest tribe in Central India.

“Eleven of the Hampi pictographs resemble the Late Harappan writing of the Indus Valley Civilisation”, says Dr KM Metry, professor of tribal studies at the Kannada University. The professor claims that this shows that after the collapse of the civilisation situated in North-West India, the Harappans moved to other parts of the country, with some of them settling in Central India and a majority of them in the South.”

My surmise that the Dravida connection with Sanatana Dharma is more deep than considered and may be the Vedic Culture prevailed here along with the Indus Valley civilization, if not earlier.

* I have noticed a curious fact about Harappa.

The name Harappa is very differnt from the other Northern town names.

In fact, as far as my search goes, it is Unique

Among all the Indian languages,only Tamil has the word ‘Appa’ for Fathere.

And Shiva was called father in Tamil anitquity and He is addressed as Appan in medieval Tamil literature of the Shaivas and Vaishanava Saint , Azhwar calls Him , Mukkannapa, father with three Eyes!

Following is the definition of the word Haran, a name for Shiva.

Intriguing to find Tamil name for God in Harappa!

 

‘ hara—just dissipate    *SB 6.14.57
hara—please diminish    SB 10.2.40
hara—the attractor.    Madhya 8.143
