Lord Ram in Mesopotamia

Proving the antiquity of Hindu Civilisation

The Ramayana is one of India's epic books and lord Rama, a man known for his honour, faith and tenacity has been suggestively and now proven falsely dated  by scholars' to anywhere between the 7th to 4th centuries BCE. Some even attempt a date even as late as the 3rd century CE based loosely on interpretations of texts and archaeology, but there is steadily growing evidence calling these suppositions into question.

Modern researchers are learning a controversial and more accurate history, that Hindu history is far older with the Mahabharata now dated to around 6000 BC which provides context for regional travel, trade and further dating of the Hindu narrative as the worlds oldest civilisation.

I have written in previous posts that the underlying knowledge, the technology of being human and scientific knowledge of our place in the universe created the ancient Hindu civilisation, and that knowledge shaped the  ancient world. As such while kings and tribal leaders ruled, the reason for being was to be happy, and to survive as a species.

Our generally accepted history states that Mesopotamia is the place where agriculture, human communities and cities were first developed. Mesopotamia is a region corresponding to modern day Iraq, Iran, Syria and Turkey. But now evidence is emerging showing that our accepted view of history is wrong. Civilisation began in India and spread over the world to be re-interpreted.

The above image is characteristic of Lord Rama, the hero of the Hindu Epic, The Ramayana. If this image had been created in the time-line of the modern historical perspective, it would not make sense because Sanatana Dharma had been replaced by Zoroastrianism and the emerging Judaism.  This image has been dated and most agree to around 6000 BC putting it in context to the Hindu narrative the world is awakening to.

The significance of Rama

In support of this new thesis, there remains a written list of Sumerian rulers which includes the names such as Ram-Sin who ruled for 60 years and Bharat-Sin who ruled for 12 years. In questioning this information we must consider that Rama was a popular name, or for sons who's parents aspired for their greatness - but the name was there implying traditional use of the name. Combine the use of the name, plus the reverence associated with the name and the archaeology,  there is a very strong case.

Now lets add references to Lakshmana, through names such as Lakhamar (ie Hindu goddess Lakshmi) that also occur showing more cultural links adding weight to this argument.
