            The reference to Himalayan mountains in the Vedic literature gives a severe blow to Max Muller gangs and Marxist gangs ; Rig Veda talks about Ganga- Yamuna and 30 other rivers towards West (up to Afghanistan). And the mention about camels as gifts to Vedic seers in Dhana Stuti hymns thrash and smash Max Muller gangs who said Aryans were nomads, they did not know agriculture, they came and settled in Punjab. All these bluffs are thrown to winds by geographical references upto Vidharba , the birth place of the beautiful princess Lopamudra who was married to Agastya. When one points out all these things to so called 30+ Indologists, they bluff more and more saying ‘it may be an interpolation’, ‘it was from the latter part of the Vedas’, ‘it may mean a different river or hill’ etc. It will remind everyone of us of the Aesop fable ‘The Wolf and the Lamb’. I want to eat you under some excuse.

Like Max Muller gang misled the entire world with Aryan Migration Theory, like Max Muller gang created Hitler (who said in his auto biography that he was an Aryan and they only can rule the word) by putting capital A for the common word ‘arya’ three other western idiots John Marshall , Mortimer Wheeler and Mackay misled the entire world saying Indus Valley Civilization is  non Aryan may be Dravidian. Now all their bluffs are dust binned due to excavations in a vast area and BARC’s Sarasvati River Research and NASA’s aerial pictures.

These two gangs rejected all the 154 generations of kings in our epics and Puranas as myths, rejected 100+ kings in Vedas and started our history from Buddha period.

Zend Avesta, the Veda of Zoroastrians/Parsis , also give a severe blow to these gangs of charlatans by referring to 16 regions including Sapta Sindhu (now Panch a Sindhu= Pancha Aapa= Punjab) covering areas of severe cold and severe heat. There also western idiots poked their noses and gave 100 explanations for each of the 16 geographical locations. The 16 place names cover Himalayas, Hindukush and Mujavant (land of Soma plant). In short they got confused by giving false statements and confused others as well.

‘Hima’ denoting cold, cold weather occurs several times in the Rigveda .  Himavant for the snowy mountains occurs both in the Rigveda and Atharvana Veda. It may cover a long range of the Himalayas .

AV- 12-1-11; RV 10-121-4

There are lot of other indirect references to mountains in River Hymns (Nadhi Stuti)

Then we see it several Brahmanas (later Vedic books) . Later we see it in Kalidasa of first century BCE followed by Sangam Tamil literature of first three centuries of modern era (CE).

The Vedas mentioned elephants which are not found in Europe. The Vedas insisted water for all the ceremonies from birth to death. All these showed that the Vedic Hindus were the sons of the soil and they migrated to Mesopotamia, Misra desa(Egypt) and Turaga desa/horse land (Turkey) and Aryan desa  (Iran), Surya desa (Syria) etc.

We see Tamils naming their native places of South India in Sri Lanka when they migrated there. We see river Ganga/s name in Sri Lanka, South East Asia and central Africa (Congo=Ganga) when they migrated to those places. English also named places in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, America and South Africa after their native places in England or other parts of Europe. In the same way when Zoroaster or his followers migrated to Iran, he/they named it Aryan/Iran.

Now let us look at Himalayas in detail

The word Hima/Snow in Sanskrit changes to

Imaya – in Tamil Sangam literature

Zyma – Avestan  (h= z or s)

Kheima – Greek (H=K)

Hiems- Latin (closer to Tamil word Imaya)

Zima – Slavic languages (Hindus went to Iran and from there to Europe or via Slavic areas they went to Iran)

Gem – Celtic languages (H=G)

Himalayas in the Vedas

His, through his might, are these snow covered mountains, and men call sea and Rasa his possession

His arms are these , his are these heavenly regions. What God shall we adore with our oblation” -RV.

10-121-4

(Griffith translation itself is wrong; ‘Ka’ means Prajapati; ‘K’a also means ‘What’; Probably the poet used it as a Sleshma= Doble entendre; The Rishi/poet’s name is Hiranyagraban, son of Prajapati)

The River Rasa in the same stanza is also an unsolved mystery in the Rig Veda. Some think it is a river in Punjab; Griffith and others think it is a mystical river in heaven or in atmosphere)

Rig Veda Mandala 10 Hymn 121-4


यस्येमे हिमवन्तो महित्वा यस्य समुद्रं रसया सहाहुः |
यस्येमाः परदिशो यस्य बाहू कस्मै देवाय हविषाविधेम ||

xxx

From the Atharvana Veda (AV)

12-1-11 of Bhumi Sukta the poet used the word Himavanto again:-

“Pleasant be thy hills, O Earth,

Thy snow-clad mountains and thy woods

Earth – – brown, black, ruddy and multi coloured

the firm earth protected by Indra,

on this earth I stand , unvanquished, unslain, unhurt  (AV 12-1-11)

We have more references to Himalayan rivers including Ganga, Sindhu and Sarasvati.

Kalidasa, the greatest of the Indian poets was the Royal poet in the court of the greatest Hindu King Vikramaditya who drove out Yavanas and Sakas and other foreign invaders from India, ruled in the first century BCE. Government of India follows his year as official year until this day. Kalidasa knew the whole geography of greater India; he is the one who called 1500 mile long Himalayan range as the Measuring rod of earth’; he must have looked at it from space! Or Hindus have drawn a clear map of northern mountains 2100 years ago. His description of the Himalayas is translated verbatim in the oldest part of Sangam Tamil literature. Probably Tamil Brahmin poets Kapilar and Paranar were thorough with Kalidasa’s works; particularly the first 10 slokas of Kumarasambhavam where Kalidasa describes the Himaalayaas in beautiful verses.

“There is in the northern quarter, the deity souled lord of mountains , by name Himalaya who stands like the measuring rod of the earth spanning the eastern and western oceans (Devataatma, earth’s Maanadandah)”

The Tamils never mentioned anything about River Sindhu (Indus) until seventh or eighth centuries. They can never be linked with Indus Valley Civilization!

Devatatma Himalaya, Kanchana Srnga (kanchunjanga) Himaalaya, Northern border – all such Sanskrit expressions are found in oldest part of Tamil literature. They were greatly influenced by Kalidasan Terminolgy.
