Indra’s Amravathi Baikal Ilavarsha In Russia

In Hinduism on February 13, 2015 at 09:11

I have written on Baikal being of Indian origin and Arkaim being the land of Sanatana Dhrma, not to speak of the fact that the Rig Veda was composed in the Arctic.

Sudharshana Dweepa of Bharatavarsha.png

Sudharshana Dweepa of Bharatavarsha.

The Puranas describe, while talking about the Earth, say that there was Ilavarsha and they talk, along with the Ithihasas Ramayana and Mahabharata bout Amaravathi, the capital of Deva Loka of Indra.

The huge circle in the above diagram shows the extent of“Sudharshana Dweepa” where the rule of Sanatan Dharma was in place.

It had Bharath in the South (rectangle area in the bottom of this picture) with

Hemakuta or Himalayas in its northern limits,

an intermediary Ilavarsha to the north of Himalayas (noted in dark red square in the middle) and

a vast Airavatha varsha in extreme north of the Sudharshana dweepa..

Most of  Russia come Airavatha Varsha  and Airavatha is the name of Indra’s Elephant.

The Deva territory is close to the North pole where there was sunlight continuously for 6 months and darkness continuously for 6 months. The elephant, Airavatha  in all probability was the Woolly mammoth ,which became extinct about 10,000 years ago. ..

Part of Uttarakuru Region.

Uttar kuru means the land of Kuru (a clan) settled in the North. They were the early settlers much before Mahabharatha times (which was about 5000 years ago.) The men and women of that territory were said to have led a free life and mingled with each other as they wished. The probable reason could have been procreation which was minimal owing to climatic conditions that existed there.

There is an opinion that the name Russia was derived from Rishi varsha.  There is a mention of Rishi varsha in scriptures which goes well with this region. The presence of Devas  in this part of the globe in a distant past had attracted  sages to this place. We have a number of references in Puranas of sages going to the Deva territory. Perhaps their overwhelming presence gave the name Rishi varsha which later became Russia.

There is yet another root to the name Russia as being derived from the olden name of Volga river. Volga was called as  ‘rasa’ or ‘rosa’. People think that it is derived from the Persian word ‘rana’ or ‘ra’. But this word ‘rasa’ is a straight Sanskrit word meaning essence, juice, nectar, elixir, soup, love, the finest part of anything and so on. This name perfectly fits with the river of fine water quality From the river’s name Rasa, the name Russia was derived.  


Russia a part of Sanatana Dharma

Sthree Varsha Women Kingdom Rishi Varsha Russia Hindu Texts

In Hinduism on August 19, 2014 at 16:10

Russia was known as Rishi Varsha an it surrounded the Bharata Varsha as described in the Puranas.


There have migrations from India, from the Sarasvati Valley Civilization,from the Dravida Kingdoms, and from the North again.


There is enough evidence in the present Russia right from the names of Rivers,Olga,Moksha from which Moscow is derived,Karaggana, Utkaraganga,


People living in the valley of the River Moksha spoke a language Moksha!


Place Arkaim, the name of Surya, Sun is Arka.


Arkaim is an important archeological site .


Many Hindu Ritual signs are found here.


One finds the designs of swastika here and this site is dated 4500BC!

But reasonable reactions notwithstanding, why have people who are looking for their roots in the direction of Vedic ancestry been more suspect than any other indigenous people curious about their heritage? After all, it would appear to be an uncommonly large area upon which such ancestors would have enjoyed their apparently advanced culture. Such a culture would seem to have “fed” much of what we now call Western civilization and parts of Asia, including migrated tribes, such as American Indians and even Europeans settling America.

Moreover, as we also explore elsewhere regarding linguistic research efforts around the so-called Nostratic or Proto-Language question, some linguists are struggling with the possibility of linguistic ancestral roots for possibly ALL humankind, of all colors, so that the suspect idea of any “superiority” should be supported as an excitement for all of humanity maybe re-discovering its true origin and common spiritual heritage.

Mahabharata describes the route to Russia while talking about Kekaya Kingdom.


Kaikeyi of Ramayana was born here.


“Lahore was the kingdom of Lava, son of Rama. ead my post on this.

Peshawar was the kingdom of Pushkalavathy ruled by Pushkala, son of Bharatha.

These two cities were established during the reign of Rama, the son of Dasaratha. These cities are in the route toKekaya, today’s Kazaksthan which was the maternal land of Kaikeyi, mother of Bhratha. One has to cross riverChakshus to reach Kekaya.  This river is now known as Oxus . It is shown in blue colour in this picture”

The Route to Russia,, Mahabharata.


People who lived in the valley near Moscow worshiped Indra and Vayu.


Moscow Empire was ruled by women called Sthree Rajya.


It was dominated by women – due to which it got the name Sthree Rajya – the land of women or dominated by women.  They were supposed to seduce men and lead a free life.

Varaha mihira has mentioned this place as one of the countries surrounding Bharatha varsha.

Vatsyanana also has mentioned about Sthree Rajya in the context of “Grama naari vishayam” where he has said that the women of Sthree Rajya  were free to have sex with a any man they liked.

Bhattasmin , the commentator for Artha sastra also has talked about SthreRajya as a country abounding in luxurious artilces and happiness.


Please read my post on where an ancient Vishnu Idol was found in Russia.


Also there are suggestions that the Rig Veda might have been composed in the Arctic.


Please refer my post.


So what now is called Russia was following Santana Dharma and many Rishis, Yagnyavalkya and Vasishta traveled and stayed there.,near Vaikhanasa now called Baikal.





Indra In Russia Lake Baikal Vaikhanasa Teertha

In Hinduism on August 19, 2014 at 09:15

My research into Sanatana Dharma having spread through out the world has come to a sort of shape.


Studies on Vedas, Puranas ,Ithihasas and Tamil literature has given me a fair idea.


Cross checking this information with the  geographical information with the Legends and the Physical locations of the world provide some interesting information.


I have written auite a few articles on the evidence of Sanatana Dharma being present throughout the world, with the help of archeological findings, culture and linguistics.


Sanatana Dharma was in practice in Sri Lanka,Malaysia, Cambodia,Vietnam, Laos, Philippines,Japan,Fiji,China, New Zealand, Australia on the eastern side of the present India,


Middle East, Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy,Spain,France, Britain,


African Continent,


South America, Central America,Mexico and North America(US).


This Sanatana Dharma had Dravida or South India conncetion.


This becomes evident when one reads Sanskrit Literature and Hindu religious texts in conjunction with Tamil literature and cross referencing the events found in these texts with the Great floods referred to in them.


Lord Rama’s ancestor Satyavrata Manu migrated from the South , land between Goa and the Indian Ocean, to Ayodhya with his two sons.


His other son with the help of Ganesha and Shiva moved towards the West through the Arabian Sea  and settled down in Europe and Africa.


This happened during the third Great Flood.


But the is another reference to the migration of the people from the Sarasvati Valley/Indus Valley towards North through Afghanistan and Russia .


A group among these moved into Europe as well.


This accounts for the migration of people from Asia into Europe in intermittent waves.


Sagara, he ancestor of Rama, more ancient than Satyavrata Manu who moved from the South to North.


This was the period when Ganga, the Ganges did not flow.


This was subsequently brought (Ganges) by Bhagiratha, Sagara’s descendant.


Sagara fought a great Battle with the Kings of the South,they were also a part of Sanatana Dharma and won.


He banished them to the west through Afghanistan and asked them not to practice Sanatana Dharama, have the heads shaved and cursed them to be called Milechas.

Milecha is the term used in a derogatory sense to indicate the people of the west.

This is also the reason for prohibiting Sanatana Dharma followers from traveling through the Ocean.

Some of these people settled down Russia and moved into Arctic as well.

Among these people who were prohibited from learning the Vedas, some of them did.

They established Sanatana Dharma and Hindu practices in the Arctic and Russia.

The descendents of this group probably came down to India at a later date through SouthEast of Russia, Afghanistan into Indus Valley.


This probably is called the present Indus Valley Civilization.


Now to the evidence of Sanatana Dharam having been present in Russia.


Airavatha Varsha.jpg

Airavatha Varsha as described in Puranas.Airavatha Varsha.


Lake Baikal in Russia.jpg

Lake Baikal in Russia.

In Sudharshana Dweepa” , the rule of Sanatana Dharma was in place.

It had Bharath in the South (rectangle area in the bottom of this picture) with

Hemakuta or Himalayas in its northern limits,

an intermediary Ilavarsha to the north of Himalayas (noted in dark red square in the middle) and

a vast Airavatha varsha in extreme north of the Sudharshana dweepa.

Most of Russia is covered by Airavatha varsha.

Airavatha is the name of the elephant of Indra, the titular king of the Devas.

The Deva territory is close to the North pole where there was sunlight continuously for 6 months and darkness continuously for 6 months.

The elephant, Airavatha  in all probability was the Woolly mammoth which became extinct about 10,000 years ago.


Skanda secured the release of Indra’s son, Jayanthaand killed Sura padma.  (Skanda Puaana)

Skanda described in this purana coincides with Ugra kumara born to Meenakshi and Sundareswara who started the first Sangam assemblage in the South-Madurai (Then-Madurai) in Deep South about 11,000 years ago.(post on this follows)


Before the last glaciation, the territory near north pole was very much habitable. The locations called Amaravathy, capital city of Devas and Uttar Kuru existed in Siberia.


The route to Uttarkuru and Deva territories is explained in Valmiki Ramayana through the narration of Shugreevawho detailed the places to be seen and searched to find out Seetha  in the north of Bharath. (Valmiki Ramayana -4-43)


Read my post On Sugreeva’s direction to vanaras to search for Sita in Peru.

Once having crossed the vast Himalayas, he describes a pure-water  lake called Vaikhanas where sages used to do penance.

This coincides with Lake Baikal.. There is an opinion that the name Russia was derived from Rishi varsha.

There is a mention of Rishi varsha in scriptures which goes well with this region. The presence of Devas  in this part of the globe in a distant past had attracted  sages to this place.


It is derived from the Persian word ‘rana’ or ‘ra’. But this word ‘rasa’ is a straight Sanskrit word meaning essence, juice, nectar, elixir, soup, love, the finest part of anything and so on.

This name perfectly fits with the river of fine water quality From the river’s name Rasa, the name Russia was derived.

Volga’s tributary is called  as ‘Oka’. People connect it with the Latin Aqua which means water, whereas the root word Apa ins again a straight Sanskrit word meaning the same.

From Apa comes ‘aapa-saras’ the  waterway and from that ‘apsaras’ the beautiful girls who enjoy playing in the aapa-saras.

This region of Russia was identified with Apsaras women. Menaka, Urvasi, Thiloththama etc were all apsara women who were known to have seduced men.

Another tributary of Volga is known by a name which is very familiar to any Hindu.

It is river ‘Moksha’ which means salvation in Sanskrit.

There is another tributary nearer to this Moksha called as “Mokswa”.

Moscow got its name from Mokswa because of its location on the banks of this river!

Rig Veda Composed In Russia?

In Hinduism on August 6, 2014 at 23:21

I have come across information that the Rig Veda was composed in Russia!


Dr. Weer Rajendra Rishi (1917 – 2002) was a well-known Indian linguist.


Vishnu Idol in Russia.jpg

Vishnu Idol. The idol found in Staraya (old) Maina village dates back to VII-X century AD. Staraya Maina village in Ulyanovsk region was a highly populated city 1700 years ago, much older than Kiev, so far believed to be the mother of all Russian cities. Image credit.http://bharatuntoldstory.tumblr.com/post/76958321892/evidence-of-ancient-worldwide-vedic-civilization.


He was fluent in Russian and worked in the Indian Embassy in Moscow between 1950—1952.


Dr. Rishi was the author of (1) Russian-Hindi Dictionary (foreword by the late Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru), (2) Russian Grammar in Hindi, (3) Russian Folklore in Hindi (4) Hindi translation of Pushkin’s poem ‘Gypsy‘, (5) Marriages of the Orient, (6) Roma—The Punjabi Emigrants in Europe, the USSR, the Americas etc. (7) Romani-Punjabi-English Conversation Book, (8)Romani-Punjabi-English Dictionary and (9) Multi-Lingual Romani Dictionary (Romani Hindi English French Russian.


One of his last works was a book India & Russia – Linguistic & Cultural Affinity.


He took voluntary retirement from the Indian Foreign Service in 1973.


He was awarded the  Padmasri , High Honour by the President of India in 1973.


He states that the Folklore of Russia resembles Sanskrit when sung.


He observes..




Professor Smirnov (1892—
1967), the reputed Sanskritologist of the Soviet Union has trans­
lated Mahäbhärata into Russian in this type of verse. Professor
Smirnow had with him a recording of an extract from the
Mahäbhärata read in Sanskrit original by Professor Nirmal
Chandra Maitra of India to the accompaniment of Indian
instruments. When after playing the recording of the Sanskrit
version, Professor Smirnov read his Russian translation, the
enchanting melody of the rhythm was found to be very much
like that of the Sanskrit original as read by Professor Nirmal
Chandra Maitra and sounded in unison”


He further analyses the Grammar, Phonetics and style of Sanskrit and Russian and points very close affinity.


I have provided a Link towards end of this post.


I am also providing a list of Russian words that bear a striking resemblance to Sanskrit.


In the meanwhile I read a Book where the author, a Scholar in Sanskrit, Tatyana Elizarenkova in her Book ‘Language and Style of the Vedic Rsis’ states that the Rig Veda was written in Russia!

This is based on the language construction, Grammar and the affinity between Sanskrit and Russian.

Based on a Study of Indo-European Languages and cross checking with other scholars of the West who knew Sanskrit she seemed to have arrived at the conclusion.


My knowledge of Sanskrit , Vedas and Puranas is limited to the extent that the area which is called Russia was a part of Vedic India and the names of Rivers


Mountains ,places have a striking resemblance to Sanskrit, from Kabul onwards.


However I have been able to unearth information on a single locale in Russia where there is evidence of Vedic influence.


Beyond it I have not been able to get any further information.


Readers may contribute.


Now to the affinity between Sanskrit and Russian.

Vedic Hinduism In Germany Greece, Russian Veda

I have posted articles that Hnduism, Sanatana Dharma was all over the World and the entire Jambu Dweepa was practicing Hinduism.
I had provided Maps of Ancient India,Kingdoms as well
I am furnishing details from research articles on this subject.
In his book ‘Proof of Vedic Culture’s Global Existence’ Stephen Knapp confirms that the Vedic culture was once global.
Professor Alexander Vasilyavich Medvedev, chairman of the religious affairs committee of the Urals region.
Professor Medvedev:
“The problem amongst our leaders may not be so much in having to accept your movement, but to accept that the Vedic culture could have very well been the original culture here in Russia.You know in Russia practically all the scientists accept that the Vedic culture once flourished here, the center being in the Volga river region.

The debate among our scientists is only if the Aryans came from India or they originated here.

There is much evidence to the fact that Vedic culture existed here, most notably the Russian Veda”

“The Russian Veda” Interrupted Indradyumna Marharaj.

“Yes, it is famous amongst our people, it is as old as Russia, and the stories are exactly like those in the Vedic scriptures.

The central figure of the Russian Veda is a personality called Krishen.

He is the upholder of spiritual truths and the killer of many demons. His killing of a witch and snake are exactly like the history of child Krsna killing the putana and aghasura demons in the bhagavat puranas.

But the Russian Veda is not intended for children.

It is full of spiritual truths.”
