Cosmos ,Sanatan Dharma.Ancient Hinduism science.
These are some open evidence which west cant refuse !!! Time and again they tried their level best to keep aside hindu history of human civilisation .Already in my many post, I have provided ground breaking evidences yet for many Indians, Americans. Native americans to Myans , Sumer , Incas , Meso all are Indian migrants .
The ancient Mexican game of Patolli is similar in details to the game of Panchisi played in India. The mathematical probability of two games invented separately agreeing by chance in so many specific intricate features, is zilch. Mexican call a potter “Kumbhar”, as Sanskrit word. There are several other similarities.After Vedic people the Mayas of Yucatan were the first people to use a zero sign in Mathematics. This knowledge came from India, as we had this knowledge thousand of years before them. All over Mayan civilization you find stone sculptures of Indian Vimanas and people in space suits. They just sculpted what they saw. The Kundalini snake of Lord Shiva is also depicted.
The elephant on a sculptured pillar at Copan, which he referred to as an “idol”. Is an animal unknown in that country. It is an Indian elephant and NOT an African elephant. Indian elephants are found in Indian elephants as they are conscious creatures. They can see their image in the mirror, which only humans can do. Animals and birds cant see themselves in the mirror. Few like Bonobos and Chimps can see partially.
Archaeologists found many Hindu deities like Shiva, black meteorite Shiva linga, Lord Ganesha, Goddess Kali, Sun god Surya , Buddha etc. (in similar or slightly different forms) which were worshiped in ancient America. Images of Ganesha have been excavated in plenty in Mexico. This god with the elephant’s trunk is frequently depicted in Mexican manuscripts . Lord Ganesha ‘Ekadant Ganesh’ was found in the temple at Kopan .The image of Hanuman called by the name ‘Wilka Huemana’ and measuring 50 feet in height and 12 feet in breadth was found in Guatemala. Similar one was found during an excavation of an Aztec temple in Mexico City and was known as ‘Euhectal’, a wind God, a monkey God.In the jungles of Honduras idols sit in Hindu mudra meditation pose also found. The Hindu doctrine of the ages is found on a massive stone monolith popularly known as the Aztec calendar. This amazing piece of stone disc is 12 feet in diameter and weights more than 20 tons.A festival called Sita-Ram (Situa – Raimi) was celebrated in Mexico during Nav-Ratri or Dussehra period which has been described on page 5867 in the book ‘Hamsworth History of the World’.
Both in Central and South America, there are found Sati cremation, priesthood, gurukul system, yajna, birth, marriage and death ceremonies to some extent similar to the Hindus. When Pizarro killed Peruvian King Atahualpa his 4 wives committed Sati—or self sacrifice.
Same with Hindu concepts of cataclysm, rebirth, four yugas and the concept of two planets like Rahu and Ketu causing solar eclipseThe ancient American’s dresses (male and female) were simple and similar to those of Hindu dresses. You can mistake a Mexican woman with a Indian woman, with narrow waist , wide feminine hip bones long black hair and same facial features.
Ayar Inoa King used to wear a turban, earring and a trishul type trident in his hand.Vegetarianism exists in these areas as well as Hindu India. They wore cotton which is India’s gift to this planet. Indian maize is used in Mexican Tortillas –a form of Chapati.They love their food spicy, like Indians.Baron Alexander Von Humboldt, did extensive studies and found similarities between Asian and Mexican astrology.
In 1866, the French architect, Eugene Viollet-le-Duc, noted striking resemblances between ancient Mexican temples and and those of South India. There is amazing similarity between the Hindu Trinity – Brahma- Vishnu- Shiva and the Mexican Trinity Ho- Huitzilopochtli- Tlaloc .The idols were represented with serpents round their heads, as for Lord Shiva.-basically raised Kundalini.
The Swastika sign of this area , seen on a “huaco” pot had with four dots inside. This is a Vedic sign that you can see on the top of the gates of ancient temples, and even in my home.
Bichitra Natak (or Bachittar/Vichitra) (Resplendent Drama) is the autobiography of Guru Gobind Singh, the 10th Sikh Guru. It is a part of the Dasam Granth and is the name given to the third Bani in the second holy scriptures of the Sikhs. This text spans from page 94 to page 175 of the 2326 pages of this holy book of the Sikhs.
Bachittar Natak is an autobiographical narrated by the tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh for the first 32 years of his life. Although the word “Natak” means “drama” in Punjabi, this is no drama. The Guru has outlined the circumstance and history of the time and how great courage and strength was required to overcome the many hurdles that were upon the community.
It starts with a praise of the Akal Purukh. It then gives a genealogy of Bedis and Sodhis starting from Lord Rama and his two sons Lav and Kush. It gives the author’s own biography and includes the battle of Nadaun, Husaini battle and the arrival of prince Muazzam in the Punjab. It continues up to AD 1696.
Be it as a manifestation of God or simply as a legendary hero of myths and folktales, Rama is an immensely revered and inspirational figure to people across the Indian subcontinent and South East Asia, as well as increasingly across Western civilization, where the Hindu epics and values are gaining recognition and popularity. In Jainism, Rama is enumerated among the nine white Balas. He is revered in Sikhism,(in the Guru Granth Sahib)
Rama is a great hero to the adherents of Agama Hindu Dharma and to the Muslims who practice Abangan, a syncretic form of Islam and Hinduism, in Indonesia. He is revered by the people of Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar, Cambodia and Vietnam, who otherwise adhere to different forms of Buddhism, Islam and Hinduism. The Rama Leela is performed across South East Asia in numerous local languages and the story has been the subject of art, architecture, music, folk dance and sculpture. The ancient city of Ayutthaya stands in Thailand, as the tribute of an ancient Thai kingdom to the great legend. Many ancient and medieval era kings of South East Asia have adopted Rama as their name.
A Buddhist version of the tale is found in the Jataka stories, in the Dasharatha Jataka (Jataka Atthakatha 461) in the Pali vernacular. Here Rama is represented as a former life of the Buddha as a Bodhisat and supreme Dharma King of great wisdom. In the Buddhist tale, he is the king of Varanasi and not Ayodhya, which is traditionally the capital of Kosala.
Romuva is a modern confessional community of the indigenous Baltic religion practiced by the Lithuanian people prior to Christianization. Romuva is an ethnic religion community continuing living Baltic pagan traditions which survived in folklore and customs. This feature differs Romuva from other Neopaganistic confessions which are based mostly on mythology and written sources.
The terms Romuva, Romovė and Ruomuva came from medieval written sources in East Prussia mentioning the pagan Baltic temple Romowe. Linguists say that the word is derived from Baltic root ram-/rām-, meaning ‘calm, serene’.
Rituals:A ritual performedThe Baltic aukuras or “fire altar” is a stone altar in which a fire is ritually lit. Participants wash their hands and face prior to approaching the aukuras, and then they sing dainas or ritual hymns as the fire is lit. Food, drink, grasses and flowers are offered to the flame as the group sings the dainas. After the primary offering, participants offer their own verbal or silent contributions which are carried to the Gods and ancestors with the smoke and sparks of the flame
Ayutthaya (full name Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, also spelled “Ayudhya”) city is the capital of Ayutthaya province in Thailand.
The city was founded in 1350 by King U-Thong and became capital of his kingdom. The king came to escape smallpox outbreak in Lop Buri.
Often referred to as the Ayutthaya kingdom or Siam. Ayutthaya was named after the city of Ayodhya in India, the birthplace of Rama in the Ramayana (Thai, Ramakien).
In 1767 the city was destroyed by the Burmese army, and the ruins of the old city now form the Ayutthaya historical park, which is recognized internationally as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city was refounded a few kilometers to the east
Ramah in Benjamin is a city of ancient Israel. It was located near Gibeon and Mizpah to the West, Gibeah to the South, and Geba to the East.
It is identified with modern Er-Ram, about 8 km north of Jerusalem. The city is first mentioned in Joshua 18:25, near Gibeah of Benjamin.
A Levite came traveling to Gibeah, with Ramah just ahead. (Jg 19:11-15) It was fortified by Baasha, king of the northern kingdom (1 Kings 15:17-22; 2 Chr. 16:1-6). Asa, king of the southern kingdom, employed Ben Hadad the Syrian king to attack Baasha at home and draw his forces away from this city (1 Kings 15:18, 20). When Jerusalem was destroyed by the Babylonians, those taken captive were assembled in Ramah before being moved to Babylon.
Jeremiah said: A voice was heard at Ramah, Rachel was weeping over her sons, because they were no more. (Jer. 31:15). Rachel had so desired children that she considered herself dead without them. (Gen. 30:1) Jeremiah said that she was figuratively weeping because of the loss of the people killed or taken in captivity. And since she was the mother of Benjamin, it would fit because those in Ramah were Benjaminites. The words got another meaning in applying to the gruesome slaughter of boy children when the tyrant Herod the Great was king.
Ramot or Ramot Alon is one of the largest neighborhoods in Jerusalem
In the Bible, during the story of the death of the prophet Samuel, it is written that as he died, all of Israel came to bury him in his home, in the Rama. Oral tradition indicates that place is the one of the highest peaks surrounding Jerusalem, some 855 meters above sea level. Ramot is located on the hills south of that peak.
There are Crusader era remains in Ramot 02 and Ramot 06.
The word Ramot in Hebrew means “heights” or “rises” (a plural of the word Rama). When used in reference to geography, the word is usually translated as “plateaus”. The name Alon refers to Yigal Alon, a former prime minister of Israel. While the full name is Ramot Alon, the inhabitants refer to the neighborhood simply as Ramot.
Ramathaim-Zophim, a town that has been identified with the modern Neby Samwil (“the prophet Samuel”), about 4 or 5 miles north-west of Jerusalem. But there is no certainty as to its precise locality.
The home of Elkanah, Samuel’s father (1 Samuel 1:19 ; 2:11 ), the birth-place of Samuel and the seat of his authority (1 Sam. 2:11; 7:17). It is frequently mentioned in the history of that prophet and of David (15:34; 16:13; 19:18-23). Here Samuel died and was buried (25:1).
Some have supposed that it may be identical with Arimathea of the New Testament.
Ramat HaNegev Regional Council (Hebrew: מועצה אזורית רמת נגב, Mo’etza Azurit Ramat Negev, lit. Negev Heights Regional Council) is a regional council in the Negev desert in Israel. The largest regional council in the country, its headquarters are located on Road 40 between Mashabey Sadeh and Tlalim.
Ramana (also spelled Ramany, Romana, Azeri: Ramana, Ramanı; in full: Ramana— the Ramana settlement) is an urban-type settlement in Azerbaijan, within the Sabunchu district of Baku. Population (2005): 8,800.
The settlement was possibly founded by the Roman troops lead by Maximus Livius of Legio XII Fulminata in circa 84-96 AD and derives its name from the Latin Romana. Among the facts that strengthen this hypothesis are the military-topoghraphical map of Caucasus published in 1903 by Russian Administration which spells name of town as “Romana”; various Roman artefacts found in Absheron region and also old inhabitants’ referring to the town as Romani.
Mitzpe Ramon ( lit. Ramon Lookout) is a local council in the Negev desert of southern Israel. The town is situated on the northern ridge at an elevation of 2,400 feet (800m.) overlooking an enormous karst erosion cirque known as the Ramon Crater. This crater, or machtesh, as it is called in Hebrew (a term also used by geologists around the world) is 28 miles long and five miles wide. It is a formation unique to Israel and the Sinai. Machtesh Ramon is the largest such crater in the world
In a path-breaking revelation, a young research scholar of Potti Sriramulu Telugu University has come out with recorded evidence linking Telugus and Israelis on the basis of Telugu words found in Hebrew literature.
The disclosure was made by Samyuktha Koonaiah in her presentation at a seminar on `Telugu History and Culture’ on the concluding day of the three-day All India Telugu Conference here on Sunday. She quoted epigraphic evidence traced from Bahrain in support of her argument.
Ms. Samyuktha, who is doing her research on `Andhra Pradesh – The missing link – Tilmun language and Telugu’, said a 1794 BC stone tablet established that the Sumerian-Assyrian culture had its roots in Andhra Pradesh.

All the things are not accurate but can open new horizon into ancient history
Ramoth was a Levite city in the Tribe of Issachar. It is probably the same as Remeth and Jarmuth. (Joshua 19:17,21 1 Chronicles 6:71-73) Some have tentatively identified it with Kokab el-Hawa north of Beth-Shean.
An extract from “Proof of Vedic Culture’s Global Existence– by Stephen Knapp

Swami Krishnanand once visited the Abyssinian monarch Haile Selassie and presented a copy of the Ramayana. He thought the Christain rulers were not likely to have heard of the book, but was pleasantly surprised to hear the monarch’s remark, “This is nothing new to us. We Africans are Cushites.”
This what motivated Krishnanand to search the African school text books and find references of Africans designated as Cushites. The text books provided more evidence of Africa’s ancient administration of Cusha. However, the text bookswringly mention Cusha’s father as Ham instead of Rama. As previosuly explained that is because Rama was spelled in western regions as Rham. In course of time the “R” was dropped and what was left was ” Ham”
Other strong Ramayanic links withs with Africa can be recognized in the island of Mauritius oof the eastern coast of Southern African. The island gets its name from “Marichas”. meaning island of Marichi, who was one of the generals in the army of demon Ravana, and also a name for the sun. Rama, however, routed all the demons out of the area during the war with Ravana, and made Marichi flee to the stronghold of the Demons.

In a book Drusilla Dunjee Houston, titled The Wonderful Ethopians of the Ancient Kushite Empire(in three volumes), she indicates that the ancient name for the landmass of Africa was Kushadvipa. This is also a name mentioned in the Bhagavat Purana. Furthermore, in Ramayana, which records the activities and pasttimes of Lord ramachandra.
Some people feel he apperead at least one million to two and a half millions years ago. Lord Rama had two sons, Lava and Kush (or Cush). Each son was given half of the Earth planet to rule after the great war between Rama and the demon Ravana. Africa was an area that was under the rule of Lord Rama’s son, Kush, for which it became known as Kushadvipa. For this reason the African people were known as Kushites, also spelled as Cushities.
Another reference in this regard is found in the Bible in the book of Numbers, Chapter 12 verse one , in which it is said, “And Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses on account of the Cushite wife he had taken, for he had taken a Cushite wife”. This meansthat Cush and Cushites were a distinct and recognized culture and people that existed before the time of Moses. It also shows that Moses had taken woman from this country as a wife. Most Bibical scholars associate Cush with the area of Ethopia. In the above verse, Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses for having taken the woman as wife because she was ethnically different from them
At the temple of Wad, near North of HIjaz, there was a deity that closely resembled, if not in fact was, Lord Ramachandra.
The deity was made of stone in shape of a man covered with two mantles, carrying a sword, a bow on his shoulders, a quiver of arrows on hi back, and a spear in his hand with a small flag near the top. This is typical of the way Lord Ramachandra appears in the deity form or paintings even today.

An additional proof is that the date of the founding of Rome remains firmly rooted in the memory of Italians as 21st of April 753 BC, which is very unique since perphaps no other city of the ancient World is so very exact about its founding date.
Why and how then Rome alone remembers the exact date of its dounding. That is because the date of Ramanavami (Rama’s Birthday celebration) in 753 BC was April 21st.
Have we not evidence that the ancient Cholas discovered South America long before Columbus did and that the Inca Sun Worshippers of Peru are none but the descendants of “our Chola ancestors” (vide Neelakanta Sastri-History of S. India and M. Monohan’s “Chola’s in America 1976” – pp11-20).
The Incas had their Temple of the Sun God (Peru) much like the one in Konarak in Orissa built by the Cholas.
The Chola chieftains (Incas) of America styled themselves as “Raghuvamsa Manickam”. This shows that they belonged to the Raghuvamsa of Sri Rama whose ancestor Sibi Chakravarthi is well described in ancient Tamil literature as the Chola king Sembian.
This takes us to a very relevant inference that the ancestors of Dasaratha are as much the ancestors of the Tamils. One other ancestor of Sri Rama, MusuKunthan, is none other than the Musu Kuntha Chola in ancient Tamil history. This Musu Kunthan’s reighn was during the second ! Tamil Sangam age 4800-2800 BC.
A festival called Sita-Ram (Situa-Raimi) was celebrated in Mexico during Nav-Ratri or Dussehra period which has been described on page 5867 in the book ‘Harmsworth History of the World’
The Ramu is a river in northern Papua New Guinea. The headwaters of the river are formed in the Kratke Range from where it then travels approximately 640 km (398 mi) north-west to the Bismarck Sea.
Along the Ramu’s course it receives numerous tributaries from the Bismarck Range to the south and the Finisterre and Adelbert Ranges from the north. During the wet season the Ramu and Sepik Rivers join across the flood plain.
Heo Hwang-ok was a princess who travelled from the ancient kingdom of Ayodhya (in modern day India) to Korea. Information about her comes almost entirely from a few short passages in the Samguk Yusa, an 11th-century Korean chronicle. According to that chronicle, she arrived on a boat and married King Suro of Gaya in the year 48 CE. She was the first queen of Geumgwan Gaya, and is considered an ancestor by several Korean lineages.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heo_Hwang-okSuro of Geumgwan Gaya:
Also according to legend, King Suro’s queen Heo Hwang-ok was a princess from the Indian country of Ayuta. She is said to have arrived in Gaya by boat in the year 48. They had ten sons in all, two of whom took the mother’s family name. Ayuta is today often identified with Ayodhya in India, and the tale has gained modern significance in the light of the modern-day relations between Korea and India. This legend was recorded in the chronicle Garakguk-gi, and reproduced in the 13th century chronicle Samguk Yusa.
In the northern Indian city of Ayodhya, a recently visiting Korean delegation has inaugurated a memorial to their royal ancestor, Queen Huh. More than a hundred historians and government representatives, including the North Korean ambassador to India, unveiled the memorial on the west bank of the River Saryu. Today, the historians say, Queen Huh’s descendants number more than six-million, including the former president of the Republic of Korea, Kim Dae Jung.
VEDIC AND EGYPTIAN DEITIES:
Amun-Ra was the Egyptian Sun-God. His name appears strikingly like the ancient Vedic Term for Indra, as ‘Idamdra’, from which Indra is said to have been derived, so the Upanishads state. Indra is also a form of the Sun-God, and has Shyena (falcon) forms, like Horus.
Osiris as Son of Ra, was also Yama the Son of the Sun or the Sun-God Surya or Savitar, etc. in India. Both are also lauded in the Rig Veda, as being lauded as Lords of the Two Regions of Heaven and Hell.
Osiris was called as Asar in Egypt, which meant Throne or Royal-Seat. This appears related to Vedic ‘Asur’, which is a common term for Vedic Gods, meaning Mighty and Ruling breath.
Osiris’s body being scattered by Seth, also resembles the sacrificial-nature of Vritra as described in Yajurveda, or the Purushmedha or Cosmic-Man Sacrifice of the Rig Veda, or the later ones of Prajapati etc. It also appears to represent the same in Egypt.
The Animal-headed deities of Egypt, also resemble the Puranic descriptions of the Ganas or Hosts that dwell in the realm of Yama, the God of Dead.
Moreover, we note the Horses-headed Hayagriva of the Hinduism, who appears as Vedic Dadhyak Rishi, who wears a Horses head. The Egyptian deities appear much like this, with their own cultural or national symbols likewise.
National Geographic team ventured into Honduras rainforest to look for the fabled ‘White City’ filled with gold.Traveling into uncharted territory last month, a National Geographic team found the mounds of white rubble in the shape of a monkey’s skull that experts believe to be thousands of years old.
American explorer Theodore Morde wrote in 1939 that he had discovered the fabled city described by conquistador Hernando Cortes centuries before. Speaking to locals, he learned the city had been a shrine to the monkey God akin to Hindu’s Hanuman who is pictured hiding Rama and Sita, two more Hindu deities, in his heart to protect them. The Honduran monkey God is more menacing, he said
Honduras, is a republic in Central America. It was at times referred to as Spanish Honduras to differentiate it from British Honduras, which became the modern-day state of Belize.Honduras was home to several important Mesoamerican cultures, most notably the Maya, prior to being conquered by Spain in the sixteenth century
A team hunting for the legendary ‘lost city’ of Ciudad Blanca in Honduras has made a dramatic discovery of untouched ruins deep in the jungle that are thought to be thousands of years old, according to National Geographic.
Researchers believe the complex of plazas, mounds, a pyramid and dozens of artefacts belong to a civilization which was blooming thousands of years ago and then vanished without a trace.
It prompts the tantalizing possibility that they have found the lost civilization known as the White City, which as been the subject of local rumors among tribes people and Spanish explorers around the la Mosquita area of jungle in Honduras for hundreds of years.
Some people call it the White City Of Gold, after ancient texts described ivory temples filled with treasure – and western explorers first made reference to it from conquistador Hernando Cortes to King Charles V of Spain in 1526.
Since then countless adventurers have scoured the jungle for the ancient civilization, rumored to have enjoyed treasures beyond the wildest dreams of many budding Indiana Jones’.
One such adventurer even suggested that the city was in fact known as the White City of the Monkey God, and saw an ancient civilization worship a giant simian deity, symbolized by a large statue.
Theodore Morde, writing of his adventures in US magazine The American Weekly, said that local tribes people told him of the monkey worshiping civilization and went on with even more outlandish suggestions that a monkey from the city. Locals even told him that one ‘monkey god’ from the city kidnapped a local woman and bred half-human, half-chimp children. The children were then hunted for revenge.
Local tribes people also reportedly related the same story to an anthropologist, according to a Honduran media report.
Morde said that local people told him of a huge monkey temple inhabited by a civilization known as the Chorotegas, and claimed to have fond evidence of such a place on his expedition in 1939-40. But Morde never revealed the location of his alleged find and killed himself in 1954.
‘They include stone ceremonial seats (called metates) and finely carved vessels decorated with snakes, zoomorphic figures, and vultures.
‘The most striking object emerging from the ground is the head of what Fisher speculated might be ‘a were-jaguar,’ possibly depicting a shaman in a transformed, spirit state.
‘Alternatively, the artifact might be related to ritualized ball games that were a feature of pre-Columbian life in Mesoamerica.’
According to Theodore Morde, stone effigies of monkeys lined the approach to the city’s central temple, which was built in the shape of the monkey God.
He described the myth: ‘One day three of the hairy men who looked like great apes walked into an Indian village and carried off three of its most beautiful and pleasing maidens.
‘They took the girls back into the caves high in the mountains to live with them and bear their children.
‘From this union came, however, not human nor partly human children but the small Urus or monkeys.’
The Mayans, Incas and Aztecs have their roots in Vedic Dharma and Tamil

AZTEC OF MEXICO is derived from “worshipper of Ashtabhuja or Ashtak ( 8 armed ) ” , the eight armed God- found in Mexican temples.
Eusebius of Caesarea in his Praeparatio Evangelica (Preparation for the Gospel, tr. E.H. Gifford 1903), Book 11, ch. 3 says:Now Aristoxenus the Musician says that this argument comes from the Indians: for a certain man of that nation fell in with Socrates at Athens, and presently asked him, what he was doing in philosophy: and when he said, that he was studying human life, the Indian laughed at him, and said that no one could comprehend things human, if he were ignorant of things divine.
Another quote is from Severus Sebokht about science in ancient India from “The Wonder That Was India, A Survey of the Culture of the Indian Sub-Continent Before the Coming of the Muslims”, by A.L. Basham, Reader in the History of India in the University of London, Sidgwick and Jackson, London, 1954, repr. 1961:
In 662 AD he wrote concerning the new numerals, which were moving West and were to become what we know as ‘Arabic’ numerals:
I will omit all discussion of the science of the Indians, … , of their subtle discoveries in astronomy, discoveries that are more ingenious than those of the Greeks and the Babylonians, and of their valuable methods of calculation which surpass description. I wish only to say that this computation is done by means of nine signs. If those who believe, because they speak Greek, that they have arrived at the limits of science, would read the Indian texts, they would be convinced, even if a little late in the day, that there are others who know something of value.
Vedic culture originates in the spiritual world and in prehistory it was spread practically all over this planet (and others). Later these locations were gradually cut off and developed, or rather degraded. Thus came divisions, conversions, fanaticism, suppression and even terrorism. Replacing religion with secularism as was done in the West is not a solution in a long run because such society without higher rules (dharma) quickly degrades and is opposed by hardline religions like Islam. It can be done by knowledge of origin of all spirituality – the One and Only God who revealed His laws to various people in various places, times and circumstances. This accounts for some differences but the ultimate goal of life in all religious traditions is the same – to reconnect to God by following His laws.
When we look for various archeological, literary, astronomical and other ancient records with knowledge of Vedic culture, we find that ancient world looked a lot different than present history books potray. Great civilizations around the world shared common knowledge of Vedic influence. The earliest outsider account of India comes from Megasthenes in his Indika. and here.
“Vaisnavism, Catholic Christianity, Pure Land Buddhism and sattvic theistic Saivism are not four different salvific devotional traditions with four different competing savior-gods invented by different races or cultures. They are four different regional developments of the same tradition with one Godhead, and one savior, Lord Baladeva, worshiped in a variety of Visnu (Baal-Yahu, Lokesvara) and Siva forms. They are four forms of worship of the first person of the Godhead, through, with, in, and by the same second person. They are four traditions which are all inspired by the same Holy Spirit.” (Bhakti Ananda Goswami, February 26, 2002)Collected Works of Sri Bhakti Ananda Goswami.
Evidence of colonization of Egypt-
people from India using Indus Valley area started migrating and taking culture of Sanskrit to Mekran, Oman, Yemen and Ethiopia ,Nubia and Egypt.
Per Max Muller,the mythology of Egyptians is wholly founded on Vedic traditions.
Eusebius, a Greek writer, has also recorded that the early Ethiopians emigrated from the Indus river and first settled in the vicinity of Egypt.
Louis Jacolliot (1837-1890), who worked in French India as a government official and was at one time President of the Court in Chandranagar, translated numerous Vedic hymns, the Manusmriti, and the Tamil work, Kural says: “With such congruence before us, no one, I imagine, will appear to contest the purely Hindu origin of Egypt.
Friedrich Wilhelm, Freiherr von Bissing (1873-1956), wrote in Prehistorische Topfen aus Indien and Aegypten: “The land of Punt in the Egyptian ethnological traditions has been identified by the scholars with the Malabar coast of Deccan. From this land ebony, and other rich woods, incense, balsam, precious metals, etc. used to be imported into Egypt.”
As mentioned in Periplus of The Erythreans by W.H. Schoff, Colonel Speake says: “All our previous information, concerning the hydrography of these regions, originated with the ancient Hindus, who told it to the priests of the Nile; and all these busy Egyptian geographers, who disseminated their knowledge .The Hindu traders had a firm basis to stand upon through their intercourse with the Abyssinians. Colonel Rigby now gave me a most interesting paper, with a map attached to it, about the Nile and the Mountains of the Moon. Lieutenant Wilford wrote it, from the “Purans” of the Ancient Hindus. As it exemplifies, to a certain extent, the supposition I formerly arrived at concerning the Mountains of the Moon being associated with the country of the Moon, I would fain draw the attention of the reader of my travels to the volume of the Asiatic Researches in which it was published. It is remarkable that the Hindus have christened the source of the Nile Amara, which is the name of a country at the north-east corner of the Victoria N’yanza. This, I think, shows clearly, that the ancient Hindus must have had some kind of communication with both the northern and southern ends of the Victoria N’yanza.”
Let pioneer Indologist and Sanskritist Sir William Jones conclude in Asiatic Researches, Volume I: “Of the cursory observations on the Hindus, which it would require volumes to expand and illustrate, this is the result, that they had an immemorial affinity with the old Persians, Ethiopians and Egyptians, the Phoenicians, Greeks, and Tuscans, the Scythians, or Goths, and Celts, the Chinese, Japanese, and Peruvians.” – Grandpa’s blessings

India’s Cultural Link with Ancient America-
An article published in the ‘Hindu’ of 27th Sept. 1985 about the discovery made by Dr. Harry Fell, renowned epigraphist of USA goes to suggest that the early merchant settlers of South-East Asia had sailed to far off lands in pursuit of their profession, whose presence in Mexico is available in the form of inscriptions. Dr. Fell has deciphered the Indic inscription from Tihosuco which reads that merchant Vusaluna, the captain of the ship, sailing along the coast line, had got the inscription engraved on the stone slab in the month of July of the year 845. It is assumed that year mentioned is of Saka era.Right from the period of first Spanish historian Mr. Fray Shahaun (1515 AD) till today a number of scholars have worked over the life of native Americans and some of them came to the conclusion that in ancient times people from India and the Indian archipelago migrated to America and developed a great civilization there. In his book ‘A Compact History of Mexico’ Mr. Ignacio Bernall states that people from Asia entered America some thirty-five thousand years before, whereas Mr. Arcio Nuns, a Brazilian nuclear scientist, mentions about the Dravidians of Asia with America as old as eleven thousand years.
An image of Hanuman called by the name ‘Wilka Huemana’ and measuring 50 feet in height and 12 feet in breadth was found in Guatemala. Similar one was found during an excavation of an Aztec temple in Mexico City and was known as ‘Euhectal’, a wind God, a monkey God.Worship – The archaeologists found many Hindu deities like Shiva, Shiva linga, Ganesh, Kali, Sun, Buddha etc. (in similar or slightly different forms) which were worshiped in ancient America. The Hindu God of luck, Ganesh, was worshiped in Central-South America. Images of Ganesh have been excavated in plenty in Mexico. This god with the elephant’s trunk is frequently depicted in Mexican manuscripts and in the temple ruins in Central America as the god with a proboscis-like horn, whence water is squirting and his head is most frequently portrayed on the corners of temple walls, which are always built with reference to the original points. And image of ‘Ekadant Ganesh’ was noticed in the temple at Kopan by great Indologist late Dr. W.S. Wakankar.
Buddhism also had a vast influence on pre-Colombian America. Professor F.W. Putnam found in the jungles of Honduras a sculpture which greatly resembles Buddha. According to the July, 1901 issue of American Harper’s Magazine, it has been proved with evidence that five Buddhist monks had reached Mexico in ancient times, via Alaska.
Ceremonies, Beliefs and Customs:
Hindu culture, civilization, custom and belief also dominated ancient America to some extent. Ancient Americans believed in legendary cataclysm, rebirth, four yugas and the concept of two planets like Rahu and Ketu causing solar eclipse. The Hindu doctrine of the ages is preserved in a stone monolith popularly known as the Aztec calendar. This remarkable piece of stone carving is in the form of an immense disc 12 feet in diameter and weights over 20 tons. A festival called Sita-Ram (Situa-Raimi) was celebrated in Mexico during Nav-Ratri or Dussehra period which has been described on page 5867 in the book ‘Hamsworth History of the World’. Both in Central and South America, there are found Sati cremation, priesthood, gurukul system, yajna, birth, marriage and death ceremonies to some extent similar to the Hindus.
The ancient American’s dresses (male and female) were simple and similar to those of Hindu dresses. Mexican face types were found to be similar to those of Assam, Naga, Nepal and Haryana people. Even their reddish brown skin complexion bears distinct similarity with those of Nepalis and Nagas. If an Indian is shown a Maya lady of Yucatan province from Mexico, he will recognize her as a Jat Lady of Haryana. Ayar Inoa King used to wear a turban, earring and a trishul type trident in his hand.
Today native Indians of America live in the states of California, Arizona, New Mexico who number only few lacs (lac = 100,000). These tribes are still vegetarians. Similarly, only two lacs natives are survived in Canada who are still called as ‘Indians’. Their lifestyle, customs, and beliefs are similar to Bharatiya people.
Goldsmiths from Peru and Mexico prevailed working style similar to Indian traditional goldsmiths. Mr. Michael Long of the National Geographic Society was surprised to see the back strap weaving method in handloom at Santa Rosa of Peru. This is used to separate thread. It is very well known that cotton is a gift given by Indians to the whole world.
Professor Raman Mena, curator of the National Museum of Mexico, said that the general appearance of Maya’s writing is considered of oriental origin. According to scholar Orozco V. Berra, Maya and other languages are of Sanskrit origin. A few Sanskrit and Quichua words are given here to show their similarity and origin.
A hina (also) ena (also)
Killa (moon) Kil (shining)
Illapi (chant) lap (to speak)
Paksa (fortnight) Paksha (fortnight)
The word ‘Wara’, a unit of measurement, was also used by Maya people. They used to call Antyas as Antis. Professor Hug Fox of Michigan State University found a strange mix of Tamil and local American languages in use some millennia ago. For example, shasta, Indiana, Arevada, Utah, Guyana etc. Mr. Arcio Nuns from the Federal University of Brazil found evidence of our Gorani language in the form of Bruhi language during his long research work conducted in South America. ‘Gorani’ language was practiced thousands of years before in Tamilnadu as per Arcio Nuns. This language is still used in the Adi-Chandlur tribal area of Tamilnadu and shows similarity to the Bruhi language being practiced in South America.
It is also believed that Quichua’s (language of Peruvians) characteristic of mouth transmission is derived from Indians. Writing mathematical figures by using vertical and horizontal straight lines was a system commonly practiced by Indians and Mayas.
