THE VEDIC CONNECTION - MAYAN HANUMAN?

Artifacts from ancient Mayan ruins reveal that even far off Latin America was influenced by the Indian Vedic culture.

  1. The first sculpture your site depicts is from the Maya ruins of Copan in Honduras.

    Maya scholars David Freidel and the late Linda Schele (page 410) write that when the image of the Monkey God, known as God C, and meaning "divinity," is merged with another object it marks the image as "holy."
    In Maya religion the monkey represents the first of the Nine Lords of the Night or Underworld. Called the Bolon Ti Ku, these gods were responsible for guiding the Sun (identified as an underworld jaguar), into the underworld to be sacrificed by underworld decapitation and reborn and deified as the new Sun, baby jaguar. The first god associated with re-birth was the Monkey (GI) and Quetzalcoatl (G9) was the last associated with death and completion. The word K'uh in Classic Mayan glyphs was assigned to the monkey god and in glyphs his monkey profile was used to describe "holy" or "sacred," referring to "divinity" or "god" (M.D. Coe 2001, p.109).

    According to the Five Suns cosmogonic accounts as interpreted by Maya scholars Mary Miller and Karl Taube (1993; p.118), Quetzalcoatl in his guise as Ehecatl (the Wind God) presided over the second sun, ehecatonatiuh, the sun of wind, until it was destroyed by great winds (Note ik glyph meaning wind and spirit on scepter). The survivors of that era were turned into monkeys and Quetzalcoatl was their ruler, Finally, Susan Milbrath writes in her book on Mesoamerican archaeoastronomy entitled, Star Gods of the Maya (1999,p. 256 ), that an analysis of the Dresden Codex identifies the monkey, itself, as also related to Venus as the Morning Star.

    Quoting Ethno-archaeologist Dr. Robert Heine Geldern...

    "The influences of the Hindu-Buddhist culture of southeast Asia in Mexico and particularly, among the Maya, are incredibly strong, and they have already disturbed some Americanists who don't like to see them but cannot deny them....Ships that could cross the Indian Ocean were able to cross the Pacific too. Moreover, these ships were really larger and probably more sea-worthy than those of Columbus and Magellan."

    At some time during the Preclassic period around 1000 B.C. (de Borhegyi S.F. 1957, 1961, 1965a) a mushroom inspired religion originated or was introduced into the Olmec influenced Maya Highlands and Pacific coastal area of Guatemala. My belief is that the cult of the divine mushroom was brought to Mesoamerica by way of transpacific contact from India or southeast Asia. The Amanita muscaria mushroom, identified by the late R. Gordon Wasson as the plant and god Soma from the Rig Veda, is I believe the metaphorical key to decoding the esoteric religions of the Americas and of Easter Island.
    My online research study presents visual evidence of a divine Amanita mushroom cult in the New World, before the arrival of Columbus points directly to the Vedic inspired cult of Soma, a divine mushroom worshiped and venerated in the Vedas, which became the basic sacred literature of Hinduism. There composition may have started before 2000 B.C. even before the Aryans entered India (Wing-Tsit Chan,1969, p.13). The Amanita muscaria mushroom, or the Vedic Soma religion likely absorbed or superseded the minor religious beliefs it encountered in the New World including Easter Island, and that the mushroom's esoteric metaphors of death and rebirth may help explain the obsessive need to create megalithic stone sculptures.

    The great religions of Asia in essence, are fundamentally derived from Vedism, the Vedas being the sacred texts, that were introduced into the subcontinent (invasion from Iran?) around 1500 B.C. by the Aryans (Sanskrit for noble) a so-called invasion that postdated the Harappa/Indus civilization.

    Haoma, in Zoroastrian religion is the name of a sacred plant and divinity that plays a major role in Persian culture and mythology.

  2. @ Carl de Borhegyi.... Here I want to correct some points.

    1. Now days Aryan Invasion theory proved to be false. Aryans never invaded India. They are the original son of the soil. This wrong theory was put by Britishers to divide Indians among Aryans and Dravidians. The Arya word was used for noble persons.

    2. As per Aryan Invasion Theory, Vedas belongs to Aryans and it was written around 500-1000 BC. Vedas describes River SARASWATI many times. As per this theory this was mythological river. But satallite images has discovered its river bed. It is a proven scientific fact that this river dried around 2500BC. How Aryans can write about a river which dried more than thousand years back before their arrival.

    3. In 2001 the submerged city DWARKA was found and it is described in Mahabharata (Aryan text). Earlier Britishers called it mythology. Archeological evidences found from this submerged city is dated back up to 32000 years old. It means Aryan city DWARKA found in western coast of India is very old. And Aryans were in India at least long before 32000 years ago.

    You can verify the facts.
