Myths and legends confused as history

Myth and legend’s are inspiring stories and some of them may well be factual or based on facts that as yet we cannot prove. Yet they are so often used to shape morality and justify some human behaviours.

These stories are perhaps best seen as a decoration of history and not to be relied on until proven factual, but even here we must remember that the exploration of the history involves a lot of educated guesswork.

The mythical Ankor Wat we now know was built by Hindus, Jason and the Golden fleece story was true, the method of collecting gold is still used today. Some of the old myths are being proved true

India Begat Egypt

Tracing our ancient origins

In the first of the BBC programs on the history of Egypt narrated by Bettany Hughes, the film opens with her describing a large block of what looked like just a big block of sandstone. Bethany describes as rock as an original depiction of a bull created around 5000 BC. This is at the time when the Sahara was beginning to dry out a second time, previously it had dried around 8000 BC so that time (by thousand BC) the Kiffian people may have migrated to the Nile Valley and mixed (or been absorbed into) with the more dominant African culture prevalent through Sudan and Ethiopia.

Meet the Romans

Playboys get themselves an empire

With her ability to read between the lines and sense of realism, Mary Beard makes history interesting. She describes the legend of Romulus and Remus and its relevance to the development Rome, a city and state founded on bloodshed. Perhaps in no other time has human brutality ever been eclipsed yet the model of governance espoused by Augustus rules the world today.

Mary describes Rome as a city that takes what it wants and gives very little in return although in the modern era we tend to think that we got our language from Latin, good roads and an education system. But the Romans had no altruistic ideas, medicine was developed to serve the army

Michael Cremo and Today

History is to learn from

Michael Cremo, also known by his devotional name Drutakarmā Dāsa, is an American freelance researcher who identifies himself as a Vedic creationist and an alternative archaeologist. He has made some very interesting discoveries from which we can arrive at the possibility that humanity has been around for millions of years and over different periods developed basic metallurgy and similar technologies.

There is a possibility that the Egyptian pyramids were constructed 35,000 or so years ago to produce electricity for global distribution. On the other hand these evidences could represent that alien cultures have resided here and either died out or departed. Certainly some of the unidentifiable metallic objects, giants and other phenomena provide interesting food

Vanity – Understanding and Knowledge

How to check our vanity and understand the score of our knowledge?

Sanskrit hides the most incredible wisdom that is not a mere treasure but an endless mine of absolutely bottomless ocean of Knowledge. In year 570 saw the end of the secular life provided by Roman culture. The invading “barbarians” contributed to the downfall of Rome. A period of end of original Christian movement and starting of the medieval church.

Byzantium had done its terrible work, everything began going wrong in 570. Before that time, under Justinian, the Avars (northern barbarians) and Persians (the Eastern empire) had been kept at bay. But in 570 it all started going wrong. In 570, the Persians began a series of conquests. They

Dharma or Adharma

What happens when Dharma is not protected?

What happens when the radiation of Sun is stopped; the physical land will become barren, icy sheet covered and life as we know it will end.

Durga has been a warrior goddess, and she is depicted to express her martial skills. Her iconography typically resonates with these attributes, where she rides a lion or a tiger, has between eight and eighteen hands, each holding a weapon to destroy and create. She is often shown in the midst of her war with Mahishasura, the buffalo demon at the time she victoriously kills the demonic force which is NOT a being but darkness and Adharma symbolized by a buffalo without brains. Her icon shows

Unravelling the truth of our origins

In seeking knowledge of our origins and purpose, we firstly have to admit, we don’t know. There isn’t anyone who knows our universal origins, where we reside in relation to the whole or any clear purpose or reason for being other than to be happy!

Many of us were taught to believe that civilisation is less than seven thousand years old and the fossil record a trick of the creator. This underlying thinking continues to colour our history, dressing facts as fictions and fictions as facts. Creationism still has its following however the evolutionists now dominate the opinion polls regarding our origins, but are they right?

Korea and India Linked

By the sciences of Hinduism and Buddhism

The idea that Hinduism and Buddhism represent a scientific approach to living may be foreign to some but it’s helpful to remember that once when Europeans were still cave dwellers and hunter gatherers, India represented the world’s leading civilisation with a wide global influence.

It is conclusively known that Hindus were sailing the world in 5000 BC and perhaps for many millennia before that. These connections to our ancient past being validated by archaeological and genetic evidence. It’s well known that Hinduism flourished across Southeast Asia and eventually gave rise to the city of Angkor Wat in Cambodia yet even today Hindu iconography and traditions are vibrantly alive across the parts of Southeast

Pan, The God of Joy

A God of gaiety and joy

Published on: 5 Sep 2013 updated 01-2019 The most famous image is of Pan is of him running through the hills and fields playing his ‘pan pipes’ and seducing every female which serves to warm hearts and loins.

Pan is known for his wit, charm and sexual prowess and he is often depicted with an erect phallus. Diogenes of Sinope, speaking in jest, related a myth of Pan learning masturbation from his father, Hermes, and teaching the habit to shepherds.

Pan’s greatest conquest was that of the moon goddess Selene. He accomplished this by wrapping himself in a sheepskin to hide his hairy black goat form, and drew her down from the sky into

The 42 Ideals of Maat

Goddess of truth and Earth Mother

The ancient Egyptian Goddess Maat or Ma’at is depicted as a tall woman wearing a crown surmounted by a huge ostrich feather. Her totem symbol is a stone platform or foundation, representing the stable base (ensuring human continuity) on which order is built.

Maat personifies the concepts of truth, balance, order, harmony, law, morality, and justice. She is also the goddess attributed with regulating the stars, seasons, actions of mortals and the deities, and who brought order from chaos at the moment of creation.

Later, as a goddess in other traditions of the Egyptian pantheon, where most goddesses were paired with a male aspect, her masculine counterpart was Thoth and their attributes are the

Chamundi Viche

Celebrating the Mother of Mothers and obtaining her blessing

Within Hinduism, Chamunda/ Durga is the fierce aspect of Devi, the Supreme Mother and Goddess. Characteristically she is portrayed as a doll-like figure riding a lion or tiger, or at times other animals depending on her purpose. But there is no doubt that when she is astride a lion or tiger, her intent is more serious.

For a moment, put aside the iconography and the plethora of and the basis of Devi being the earth mother, representing the earth and everything she gives us. Remember too that we come into this life through our mothers and we owe her a debt of gratitude. That debt also extends into the earth from
