Amazing new information has come out of Rig Veda linking Sun- Indra- Taranis- Jupiter-Zeus- Celtic Wheel God

One more proof that shows Sarasvati/Indus valley civilization is closer to Celtic and Vedic civilization than any other civilization.

Magazines from Scientific American to unknown local news papers have already published the similarities between the most famous Pasupati/Shiva seal image of Sarasvati-Indus Valley civilization and the Horned God on Celtic objects. (See my links for pictures)

I wrote two articles connecting the Indus Figure on elephant with a wheel on top to Taranis-Thor in Celtic and other cultures. tamilandvedas.com, swamiindology.blogspot.com

Now there is an unknown story in the Rig Veda about Indra stealing the wheel from Suurya, the Sun God which can be linked to Roman, Greek and Celtic Gods.

These two pictures of Celtic Pasupati and Celtic Wheel God are pushing Indus civilization towards the Vedic Hindu Civilization.

HERE IS THE NEW, UNKNOWN STORY FROM RV

Rig Veda gives a story about INDRA STEALING THE WHEEL OF SUN GOD ‘SUURYA’.

No one has explained it satisfactorily except giving its verbatim translation and some hypothesis. tamilandvedas.com, swamiindology.blogspot.com

1.Rishi Vamadeva Gautama praises Indra in RV 4-30-4

“When for the sake of those oppressed , and Kutsa as he battled , you stole away the Sun’s car wheel”

(It is about the war between the angels and demons- Deva Asura Yuddha)

In another hymn Rig Veda  1-175-4, Rishi Agastya says

“Empowered by your own might , O Sage, you stole Suurya’s Chariot Wheel”

(Suurya – Sun God in Vedas).

In 10-43-5 , Rishi Krishna Angirasa praises Indra

“As in the game a gambler piles his winnings, so Maghavan sweeping all together, gained the Sun

This mighty deed of yours, none other could achieve, none Maghavan, before you none in recent time”

(Maghavan means very generous; another name of Indra)

Western Explanations

Above three hymns refer to an anecdote which is not explained by anyone properly. Western commentators make a passing reference saying it may be a solar eclipse or a weather phenomenon. Hindu Puranas did not say anything about it. tamilandvedas.com, swamiindology.blogspot.com

Griffith says on RV 4-30-4

‘Stolest away the Sun’s car-wheel’

An eclipse of the Sun, perhaps, is intended; or the meaning may be merely that the Sun’s course was stayed, as in stanza 3.

Griffith says on RV 1-175-4

‘Thou stolest Surya’s chariot wheel’-

Indra is said to have taken the wheel of the chariot of the Sun and to have cast it like a quoit against the demon of drought.

‘Kutsa’

The seer mentioned in the preceding hymn; Indra defended him against Susna, or protected mankind from drought; see 1-151-6

On 10-43-5, Griffith comments

‘Gained the sun’-

Conquers him by taking away the moisture, that is water that he has absorbed- Sayanatamilandvedas.com, swamiindology.blogspot.com

Strabo (Greek Geographer  63 BCE – 27 CE)

It looks like Griffith was also not sure about this ‘Surya Wheel Theft’ episode. It may be a Solar Eclipse or a weather phenomenon.

Strabo says that Indians are worshipping Jupiter Pluvinus, no doubt meaning Indra, and he has also been compared to  Jupiter Tonana. So the scholarly world knows that Jupiter of Rome is Indra of Rig Veda. He is portrayed as God of Sky, God of Thunder. He is again compared with Zeus of Greece.

Indra, Jupiter and Zeus are considered supreme Gods in their own countries.

Alfred Hillebrandt (German Indologist 1853-1927) says

Indra must have been a Sun God who melts the frost on approach of spring; seers praise him as the slayer of Vritra (demon of drought). In the Brahmanas , the mountains that are split open by Indra are explained as clouds . The description fits much better the letting loose of the streams after being imprisoned by frost. tamilandvedas.com, swamiindology.blogspot.com

A lot of seals with Swastika emblem are discovered in Indus- Sarasvati basin. We find Swastika images Europe as well. Western scholars interpreted Swastikaa is Sun. Until this day Hindus worship Swastika as an auspicious symbol, We find it on wedding invitations, Walls in the shops, temples and Jain statues.

Celtic Connection

Miranda Green says in her book ‘THE SUN GODS OF ANCIENT EUROPE’ (Year 1991)

“When the Romans colonised the Celtic territories of Gaul, Britain and the Rhineland , there grew a hybrid , Romano- Celtic culture which had a profound effect upon religious expression in western Europe.

“Observation of the entire spectrum of Celtic Sun images and symbols raises several points of interest. He may appear on public monuments which signify corporate worship. On such occasions, the deity may be accompanied by his Greco – Roman panoply of sceptre, eagle and thunderbolt . In some places Jupiter appear with horns. Bronze statue of Wheel God with the inscription of Jupiter is found  (Landouzy -la- ville, Aisne). Bronze statue of wheel god with thunderbolt and lightning flashes is found in Le Chatelet, Haute Marne.

“The role of the solar symbol itself is interesting; the wheel may simply accompany the celestial god, as one of his attributes or it may possess a more active role as a protective shield, on the images of the warrior sun god .

“In some places swastika or wheel is shown. Wheel and swastika may be mutually replaceable . tamilandvedas.com, swamiindology.blogspot.com

“ In the Celtic world the Greek Zeus or Roman Jupiter became identified with or linked to celestial powers which were already venerated in pre- Roman Celtic lands”.

The above selections are enough from the 168 page book of Miranda Green to show that Zeus- Jupiter, Celtic Wheel God are one and the same or closely linked.

Europeans were already worshipping Sun and one replaced the other or merged in course of time.

Wheel god is also identified as Celtic Taranis

Indra’s Vajra Ayudha from Mongolia

MY DISCOVERY

Scholars around the world have already discovered and debated over these connections. My discovery is that INDRA IS THE WHEEL GOD and INDRA IS ONE WHO STOLE THE WHEEL OF SUN CHARIOT as we find in the Rig Veda.

Earlier I interpreted the Indus figure of ‘one who stands on elephant with a wheel on his head’ as Indra on his elephant Vahana Iravata with Cakra (wheel) to show that he is a Chakravarthi (Emperor). Indra’s other name is Cakra (wheel). Throughout Buddhist literature he is called Cakka (corruption of Chakra). tamilandvedas.com, swamiindology.blogspot.com

Now my interpretation is HE IS INDRA WHO STOLE THE WHEEL OF CHARIOT OF THE SUN as we see in three Rig Vedic hymns.

I can conclude Indra = Sun God = Zeus= Jupiter = Celtic Wheel God.

Another interesting titbit is Jupiter (European Indra) is shown with Eagle. Vedic scriptures also identify Indra with Eagle (Suparna, Syena). The famous Sibi story found in Mahabharata, Buddhist Jataka tales and Sangam Tamil ‘Pura Nanuru’ verses also show Indra came in the form of an Eagle and Agni came in the form of a Pigeon.

Drought in Tamil and Sanskrit Literature (Post No.3953)

Research Article Written by London Swaminathan

 

Date: 29 May 2017

 

Time uploaded in London- 14-36

 

Post No. 3953

Our forefathers and writers gave a true account of the weather conditions prevailing in those days. These true accounts prove that they wrote genuine things and not concocted anything. We have reports of Tsunamis, earth quakes, accidents, shipwrecks, massive engineering works such as diverting River Ganga (by Bhageeratha) and River Kaveri (by Agastya), laying roads through the Vindhya Hills (Agastya ), population explosion in North India and migrating to South east Asia (Agastya drank sea) etc. Only thing is people could not understand their symbolic language. They though these are all mythological ‘stories’.

 

If we read through our literature, we can see many droughts which caused massive migrations. We even come to know the drying of Saraswati river ended the Indus Valley civilization and they migrated to different parts of India. These are very important events to know the history of the land.

Massive drought resulted in the migration of people from the Saraswati River Valley during Vedic days. Brahmins in India are generally divided into 10 groups: Pancha Goawda and Pancha Dravida. Gowda Brahmins lived in North India and Dravida Brahmins lived in South India. It is all in our literature. Many droughts caused the migration of Brahmins from one part of the country to the other.

 

Hindus believed that the 12 year orbit of Jupiter around the sun caused a drought every twelve years. Position of Venus was also considered to measure the amount of rain.

Tevaram sung by three Saivite saints mentioned the drought in different parts of Tamil Nadu. Lord Siva helped the saints by providing huge quantity of paddy and gold coins, which are considered great miracles by the Tamils. Those  1400 year old Tevaram verses are sung by all the Saivaite Tamils even today.

 

The word for drought in Sanskrit is Varkadam. In Tamil we have Varatchi and it is related to Varkata.

 

Tamil Tiruvilaiyaadal Purana talks about the drought in and around Madurai.

 

Kalidasa and Tamil Sangam Literature

Kalidasa and other poets used drought followed by rains as similes in their poems.

रावणावग्रहक्लान्तमिति वागमृतेन सः।
अभिवृष्य मरुत्सस्यम् कृष्णमेघस्तिरोदधे॥ १०-४८

rāvaṇāvagrahaklāntamiti vāgamṛtena saḥ।
abhivṛṣya marutsasyam kṛṣṇameghastirodadhe || 10-48

rAvaNAvagrahaklAntamiti vAgamR^itena saH|
abhivR^iShya marutsasyam kR^iShNameghastirodadhe || 10-48

 

On showering ambrosian water called his speech on the desiccating crop called gods owing to the drought called Ravana, he that black cloud called Vishnu disappeared.

Rain=speech, dry crops=gods, drought caused by=Ravana, Black Cloud=Vishnu

 

Tamil poet Alankudi Vanganar used the same simile in Natrinai verse 230. A man came back to his wife after visiting a courtesan. She told that the very sight of him is like rain flooding the land affected by drought.

 

Raghuvamsa 10-48= Natrinai 230

 

Sangam Tamil poets (Pura nanauru 35, 383 and 397) say that even if the planet Venus is seen in the wrong direction there wont be any drought because of the just rule of the kings. This shows their belief n the position of Venus in the sky.

 

12 long Drought and Indus Valley Civilization

 

There is an interesting reference to the drying of River Saraswati, the mighty river which ran through Punjab, Uttapradesh and other states.

 

Sarasvata, son of Dadhichi and Sarasvata survived a twelve year long drought. But all other rishis had gone away  in search of food. They had forgotten the Vedas completely. Then Sarasvata rishi taught them the Vedas (Mahabharata 9-51). This gives credit to the story of Vedic Hindus migration from the Indus valley to other parts of India after a 12 year long drought. Story of Saraswata Brahmins’ origin also corroborates this.

 

During the reign of Ukra Kumara Pandya, a legendary king, there was a 12 year long drought. Then he went and prayed to Agastya. He showed them the way.

 

The reference to 12 year long drought and once in 12 year drought are plenty in our literature.

Two droughts during Tevaram days

 

Tevaram is a collection f hymns sung by three saints Sambadar, Appar and Sundarar.

 

Sambandar and Appar were contemporaries who lived during seventh century CE. Because of drought and famine they went to Siva temple and prayed for the sake of the people. They were given one coin each till they tided over the famine. They used the coins to buy food articles.

 

Sundarar, who lived later than Appar and Sambadar , was getting regular  supply of paddy  from a generous Shiva devotee.  Suddenly he stopped it due to a severe drought. When Sundara came to know about it, he was very much worried. Lord Shiva appeared in the dream of that philanthropist and promised him a good supply of paddy. The very next day he went to nearby Tiruvarur and informed Sundara about the miracle. When Sundara saw the huge hills of paddy I a village he was wondering ow to carry them. Shiva told him that the paddy would be in Tiruarur. His words came true and every house in Tiruarur had a heap of paddy in front of his/her house. Sundara was very happy to see the delivery at the doorstep.

Aryan Chapatti and Dravidian Dosa!

B_Id_406817_kawadiyan,delhi haridwar

March with Kavadi towards Ganges in Haridwar.

Aryan Chapatti, Dravidian Dosa; Aryan Rangoli, Dravidian Kolam; Aryan Halwa, Dravidian Sakkarai Pongal; Aryan Hindustani Music, Dravidian Carnatic Music; Aryan Laddu, Dravidian Puttu; Aryan Sanskrit, Dravidian Tamil ;Aryan Kajal and Dravidian Theru Kuthu—I can go on and on like this for ever. This is how foreigners divided India. If we apply the same theory to Papua New Guinea, then we have to invent more than 700 races, because the islanders speak over 700 different languages!

 

I have already written how Hitler used Aryan Race Theory and caused the deaths of 60 million people in Second World War. Nazi even printed leaflets saying that pure Aryans will have blue eyes, sharp nose and slim body!!

(For more details, please read Aryan Hitler and Hindu Swastika)

 

If anyone likes history jokes, one can open any book written by a foreigner and start highlighting wherever he or she uses the words Aryan or Dravidian.  The best example is ‘’A comparative study of Dravidian languages’’ written by Robert Caldwell. After some time you will get confused because no two scholars agree on those points! The knowledge of the so called scholars was so shallow that they did not even know that the customs they mention as exclusively Dravidian or Aryan existed throughout India from ancient times.

 

In a vast country like India, because of the climatic conditions there will naturally be different clothes, shelter and food. Even in a small place like Tamil Nadu, Kovilpatti is famous for its Kadalai Mitai (peanut cakes), Madurai is famous for its cotton saris, Manpparai is famous for its Murukku ( a snack) and Tirunelveli is famous for its Petti Vellam (squared jiggery pieces); It does not mean they belonged to different races. Tamil kings Chera, Choza and Pandya fought for 1500 years without stopping, killing each other, fighting wars which involved arson, destruction of palaces and massacres. Nobody said that they belonged to different races!

Kavadi Worship from Indus valley to Tamil Nadu

Following few examples will show how shallow was the knowledge of people who study Indus Scripts and Indian History:

Kavadi was dubbed as a Dravidian custom by some scholars. People carry a wooden pole on a shoulder with decorations on top towards a shrine. In some places they carry the wooden pole but water pots or offerings tied on both sides of the pole. This is a balancing technique to carry heavy items for a long distance. Tamil devotees of Lord Skanda (Murugan) do it on festival days. Millions of North Indians also do it in the month of August. They march towards Haridwar or wherever they see holy River Ganges and carry water from it in pots tied to both sides of the pole. It is done by Saivite devotees like Tamil Nadu.

 

Kavadi has been used in China, West Indies, Italy  and other places to carry water or food. Nomadic acrobats even carried their children this way. Indus scholars suddenly jumped to conclusion that they used this ‘’Dravidian ‘’ symbol in the script! One of the Indus symbols is interpreted as Kavadi symbol.

indus_symbols

Picture shows Indus Kavadi Symbols

First of all those ‘’scholars’’ did not even mention about millions of Shiva devotees march towards Haridwar every year. Millions of Ayyappa devotees in Kerala also use the same technique but with a small pack called ‘’Iru Mudi’’ ( two Pockets or bags). They are supposed to live an austere life during those forty days. They have to climb high hills through thick forest. That is why they carry small bundles. So there is nothing Dravidian or Aryan here. Indus symbol of Kavadi or water carrier was used for convenience and comfort in the days when there was no road transport.

 

Cousin marriage

Marrying first cousin or second cousin is practised in Tamil Nadu. Some of the Gruhya Sutras written in Sanskrit did not approve it. Immediately it was dubbed as Dravidian! Actually it is practised even in Pakistan and the Middle East by the Muslims! One tenth of the world population follow this custom. Though Queen Victoria and other royals followed it, now the western world do not like it. But it is legal in several counties including India. Arjuna married his cousin Subhadra with Krishna’s blessing. Bodhayana of fifth century BC said it was followed in South. Actually it is followed in Maharashtra, Gujarat and Orissa. American and Australian aborigines also followed this practice. Hindu law books said a lot of things in theory which were not followed by the public. But those who wanted to impose their racist theory never missed an opportunity to interpret X ,Y,Z as Aryan or Dravidian.

 

Differences exist in nook corner of the world, even among small communities .Foreign scholars do not impose their concocted race theories such as Aryan –Dravidian race theory into it. They knew very well another Hitler will emerge!

kavadiya march

White Mustard Smoke

White mustards are called AIYAVI in Tamil. 2000 year old Sangam Tamil literature says that it was used to drive away the evil spirits and ghosts. When they bring the wounded soldiers home, they produced smoke from white mustards seeds. This custom is also mentioned in Sanskrit texts.

A text ascribed to Amoghavajra mentions this custom. It said that the ritual at the altar with the use of white mustard seeds cause great difficulties for all malevolent Devas and Yakshas. This drives the enemies far away.

I will deal with other customs such as ancient Tamils marrying on Rohini star day, Hare in the Moon belief and Peepal Tree worship in a separate article.

Serpent Queen:Indus Valley to Sabarimalai


Picture shows Indus Snake seal

The most famous snake queen figure came from the Minoan Civilization in the island of Crete. British archaeologist Arthur Evans excavated at the palace of Knossos in Crete and revealed to the world the fascinating details of a new civilization that existed between 2700 BC and 1500 BC coinciding with the Indus Valley Civilization. The famous serpent queen figure is of a priestess holding two snakes in her two hands. The same motif is found throughout in India from Vedic times to modern day. We have a faience figure in Indus Valley with two snakes.


Minoan Goddess 1600 BC

Rig Veda, the oldest religious book in the world, refers to a Sarpa Ranji (serpent queen). Atharva Veda also mentioned two snakes called Aligi and Viligi. Modern research by scholars showed that these were actually the names of two Assyrian Kings who lived in 3000 BC. If it is correct the Atharva Veda predates Indus Valley civilization. The fact that the Vedic civilization is older than the Indus valley is confirmed by the BARC (Bhaba Atomic Research Centre) research on Saraswati River that had frequent references in the Vedas. Saraswati River dried even before Indus culture reached its peak. May be the Indus culture was the continuation of Vedic culture. Now we have two proofs, one from the Assyrian sources and the other from the Vedas to prove its antiquity.

Manasa Devi

The serpent worship is universal. There is no ancient culture without a serpent God. Whether it is Egyptian or Mayan, Indus or Vedic, Minoan or Babylonian we see serpents with Gods and Goddesses. But Hindus are the only race in the world who maintains this culture until today. We have Nagapanchami celebrations celebrated throughout India where live snakes are worshipped. Hindus respect Nature and Environment and use the natural resorces to the minimum.

Snake Goddesses such as Manasa Devi and Naga Yakshi are worshipped in India. The Vedas has an authoress named as Serpent Queen. She was one of the 27 women poets of Rig Veda and her poem is in the Tenth Mandala (10-189). We have two more references to this lady in Taitriya and Aitareya Brahmanas. Sarpa Vidya (science of snakes) is mentioned in Satapatha and Gopatha Brahmanas. (see Vedic Index of name and subjects by authors AB Keith and AA Macdonell,page 438 for more details).

Aligi is the name of a kind of snake in the Atharva Veda (V-13-7) and Viligi, another snake, is also mentioned in the same hymn. Earlier scholars like AA Macdonell and AB Keith mentioned them as snakes in their Vedic Index Volumes. Bala Gangadhara Tilak did lot of research and told us that these were from the Akkadian languages. He dated the Vedas to 6000 BC. Modern research by scholars Dr Bhagawatsharan Upadhyaya and Dr Naval Viyogi showed that they were not snakes, but kings of Assyria- Aligi (Alalu) and Viligi (balalu) of 3000 BC.

Sumeria 3000 BC (see the top left)

Taimata is twice mentioned in Atharva Veda (V-13-66; V-18-4) as a species of snake according to Whitney and Bloomsfield. Once again the old Vedic translations are wrong. Actually Taimata is nothing but Tiamat found in Babylonian literature as a Goddess. May be it is the corrupted form of Sanskrit DEVA MATA (Goddess). More and more research shows many Sanskrit words in Sumerian and Babylonian literature such as Berorus (Vara Ruci), Ottaretas (Urdhwaretas), Mesopotamian god Dumuzi/Tammuz/Sammata (fish God). They are pure Sanskrit words. One and the same god was called in different names by different cultures at different times and that too in corrupted forms. When we read Sumerian names we have to remove prefixes Nan, Nin,Sin. They are equal to Sri, Sow etc. Future research will prove that they have migrated from India in the remotest time.

Naga Yakshi worshipped in all the Ayyappan temples including Sabarimalai and other goddess temples found in the Middle Eastern countries around 3000BC. We see them in Indus valley and the Vedas as well. (Please see the attached pictures and compare them). A goddess or a god will be holding two snakes in their hans on either side or will be flanked by two snakes. This is nothing new for a Hindu. All the Hindu gods are associated with snakes in one or other form.

My conclusion can be summarized as follows:

1. Vedic translations of Aligi, Viligi and Taimata are wrong and they were all really people, may be people with snake totem (Nagas).
2. Since Atharva Veda mentions Kings who lived around 3000 BC, it must be dated around that period. Rig Veda is (linguistically) older than Atharva Veda.
3. We see snake gods or goddesses in all ancient cultures. In India, we see it from Vedic days. They are worshiped until today proving that Indian culture is the oldest living culture.
4. Last but not the least; such continuity is possible only when this worship originated in India. So we can safely conclude that Hindus went to different parts of the world taking their culture. Like we lost the whole of South East Asia after 1300 year Hindu rule, we lost the Middle East long before that.

தமிழன் காதுல பூ!!!

மேல் நாட்டு “அறிஞர்கள் ” பலர் இந்தியர்கள் காதில் பூவைச் சுற்றினர். ஆனால் தமிழர்களின் இரண்டு காதுகளிலும் கொஞ்சம் கூடுதலாகவே பூவைச் சுற்றிவிட்டனர். நாகரீகம் இல்லாத காட்டுமிராண்டி ஆரியர்கள் கைபர் கணவாய் வழியாக வந்து நாகரீகம் மிக்க திராவிடர்களை தெற்கே ஓட ஓட விரட்டினார்களாம். அதில் பல திராவிடர்கள் இன்றும் மலை ஜாதி மக்களாக ஆங்காங்கே வசிக்கிறார்களாம். கொஞ்சம் பேர் நாகரீகத்தை மறக்காமல் தெற்கே தமிழர்களாக வாழ்கிறார்களாம். தமிழர்களை கோழைகள் என்றும் குதிங்கால் பிடரியில் அடிக்க ஓட்டம் பிடித்தவர்கள் என்றும் சித்தரித்து நன்றாகவே காதுல பூ சுற்றி விட்டார்கள்.

 

எங்கேயாவது தொல்காப்பியத்தில் வேத கால இந்திரனையும் வருணணையும் தமிழர்களின் கடவுளாகச் சொல்லியிருப்பதைக் கண்டு பிடித்து விடப் போகிறார்களே என்று பயந்த “ அறிஞர்கள் “ அந்தக் கடவுள் வேறு, இந்தக் கடவுள் வேறு, இரண்டும் கொஞ்சம் கொஞ்சமாக கலந்து விட்டது என்று கதை கட்டி பயங்கர குழப்பத்தையும் உண்டாக்கி விட்டார்கள். ஆரிய சிவன் வேறு, திராவிட சிவன் வேறு, ஆரிய முருகன் வேறு, திராவிட முருகன் வேறு, ஆரிய துர்க்கை வேறு, திராவிட கொற்றவை வேறு, ஆரிய விஷ்ணு வேறு, திராவிட கிருஷ்ணன் வேறு—இப்படி எக்கச் செக்க பூக்கள்!!! பூக்களோ பூக்கள் !!!

 

சரியப்பா, சிந்து சமவெளியில் எத்தனை திராவிட மண்டை ஓடுகள் கிடைத்தன, எத்தனை ஆரிய மண்டை ஓடுகள் கிடைத்தன? என்றால் பதில் கிடைக்காது. ஐயா, குதிரைகளில் வந்ததால்தானே வீர சூர திராவிடர்கள் கூடத் தோற்றுப் போனார்கள். அந்த குதிரை எலும்புகள் சிந்து வெளியில் கிடைத்ததா? என்றால் பதில் வராது. சாதுவான, சத்திய சந்தர்களான திராவிடர்களை இரும்பு ஆயுதங்களால் தாக்கியதால் தானே திராவிடர்கள் தோற்று தெற்கே ஓடினார்கள்.அந்த இரும்பு ஆயுதங்கள் எங்கே ஐயா? என்றால் பதில் வராது. அட. எத்தனை டி.என்.ஏ. ஆய்வுகளை செய்கிறீர்கள். கொஞ்சம், கிடைத்த ஆயுதங்கள், எலும்புகள் மீதான டி.என்.ஏ.யை எடுத்து ஆரிய, திராவிட டி என் ஏ.க்களைப் பிரித்து வெட்ட வெளிச்சத்துக்கு கொண்டுவரலாமே?

 

ஐயா, இதெல்லாம், போகட்டும். அருமையான செங்கற்களைக் கொண்டு சிந்து வெளியில் கட்டிடம், வீடு, குளம் கட்டினார்களே.அது கூட மறந்துபோய் தமிழர்கள் (திராவிடர்கள்) குடிசை வீடு கட்டத் துவங்கி விட்டார்களா? மலைக் குகைகளுக்குப் போய்விட்டார்களா?

 

போகட்டும். சிந்து வெளியில் கிடைத்த பாதி புலி,பாதி பெண் தெய்வம், ஆட்டு முகத்தோடு தெய்வங்கள், ஆண்குறியோடு தெய்வங்கள் இவை எல்லாம் தமிழ் இலக்கியத்தில் எங்கே உள்ளன? கங்கை நதி பற்றி சங்க நூல்களில் பாடிய தமிழன், இமய மலை பற்றிப் பாடிய திராவிடன் ஏன் சிந்து வெளியையும் நதியையும் அடியோடு மறந்தான்? சிந்து என்ற சொல்லே தெரியாதே. உலகில் பூர்வீகத்தை மறந்த நாகரீகம் எங்கேயும் இல்லையே!

 

காதுல பூ! ஆரியர்கள் கைபர் கணவாய் வழியாக வந்தார்களாம். அவர்களுடைய “ட, டி” ஒலி எல்லாம் திராவிட ஒலியால் மென்மைப் பட்டு ல, லா, லி, லீ ஆகிவிட்டதாம். இந்தப் பூவை மட்டும் இன்று பறித்துக் கீழே போடத்தான் இந்தக் கட்டுரை.

 

அக்னி மீடே புரோஹிதம் என்று மந்திரம் சொல்லிக் கொண்டே வந்தார்களாம். திராவிடர்கள் பேசுவதைக் கேட்டவுடன் அக்னி மீளே புரோஹிதம் என்று மற்றிக் கொண்டார்களாம். எத்தனை இடத்தில் இப்படி மாறியது? காதுல பூ. உலகில் எல்லா மொழி பேசுவோரும் சிற்சில சொற்களை இப்படி மாற்றித்தான் உச்சரிகிறார்கள். அதற்கு ஆரியமும் தேவை இல்லை! திராவிடமும் தேவை இல்லை !!

சிவனையும், முருகனையும் செம்மேனி அம்மான், செய்யோன் என்றெல்லாம் வருணித்து ஆயிரக் கணக்கான பாடல்கள் இருப்பதால் சிவன் திராவிடக் கறுப்பனா, ஆரியச் சிவப்பனா என்பதை எல்லாம் நான் எழுதத் தேவையே இல்லை. தேவாரம், திருமுருகாற்றுப் படயைப் படிப்பவர்கள் தாங்களாகவே காதுல சுற்றிய பூவை கழற்றிக் கீழே போட்டு மிதித்து விடுவார்கள்.

ஆனால் மொழியியல் சொற்களான நாமடி ஒலி, “ரெட்ரோப்ளக்ஸ்” போன்ற சொற்களைப் பயன்படுத்தினால் பயந்து ஒதுங்கி நிற்பார்கள். ஆகையால் தான் அந்தப் பூவை மட்டும் நான் கீழே எடுத்துப் போட வந்தேன்.

 

உண்மையில் உலகில் எல்லா மொழிகளிலும் இந்த ட, ல, ர மாற்றங்கள் உள்ளன. ஆரிய, திராவிடக் கலப்புக்கும் இதற்கும் சம்பந்தமே இல்லை!! கிரேக்க இதிஹாச கதாநாயகனை யுலிஸ்ஸஸ் என்றும் ஆடிஸ்ஸியஸ் என்றும் சொல்லுவார்கள். ல, ட மாற்றங்களைக் கவனித்திருப்பீர்கள்.

 

மாயா, இன்கா நாகாரீகத்துக்கும் ஆரிய, திராவிட மொழிகளுக்கும் சம்பந்தம் இல்லை. அங்கும் கூட பழைய பெயர், புதிய பெயர் பட்டியலில் இந்த மாற்றங்களைக் காண முடியும். கீழே சில எடுத்துக்காட்டுகள் உள்ளன.

 

தமிழ் மொழியிலேயே சந்தி சேர்க்கும்போது இந்த மற்றங்களைக் காணலாம். உலகில் தமிழ் மொழியில் எழுத்துக்கள் ஒலி மாற்றம் அடையும் அளவுக்கு வேறு எந்த மொழியிலும் எனக்குத் தெரிந்த வரை இல்லை. சம்ஸ்கிருதத்திலும் அதன் வழியாகப் பிறந்த மொழிகளுக்கும் இந்த குணம் கொஞ்சம் இருக்கிறது. இதை ஏற்றால் தமிழும் சம்ஸ்கிருதமும் ஒரு தாய்ப் பிள்ளைகள் என்று ஆகிவிடும். கீழேயுள்ள எடுத்துக் காட்டுகளைப் பாருங்கள்:

 

வடக்கில் கூட தார்வார்=தார்வட், ஜூனாகர்= ஜூனகட், சிம்மகட்= சிம்மகர், ராஜகட்= ராஜகர் என்ற பிரயோகங்கள் உண்டு. முன்பு கூறியது போல ர, ல, ட மூன்றும் இடம் மாறும், இதனால் ஒலி மாறும். நான் பிரெஞ்சுக்காரர்களுக்குத் தமிழ் சொல்லிக் கொடுத்தால் பழம் என்பதை “பர்ரம்” என்று சொல்லிவிட்டு சரியாகச் சொல்வதாக சாதிப்பார்கள். நீண்ட பயிற்சிக்குப் பின்னர்தான் தமிழன் போல பழம் என்று சொல்ல முடியும். இரண்டும் எவ்வளவு நெருக்கமான ஒலி என்பதற்காக இந்த உதாரணத்தைச் சொன்னேன்.

 

குலம்=குடி= குழு= Clan

குலம் என்ற சொல்லைத் தமிழர்கள் குடி என்று மாற்றிக் கொண்டார்கள்.

ல வை ட ஆக மாற்றியது தமிழர்கள் ! ஆரியர்கள் அல்ல.

 

சைவ சித்தாந்த உதாரணம்:

தாள்+தகை= தாடகை

ள வை ட ஆக மாற்றியது தமிழர்கள் !!! ஆரியர்கள் அல்ல.

 

Colon=Gut=குடல்=குழல் வடிவான உடல் உறுப்பு (ல=ட=ழ)

Ulyssys = Odysseus (Greek Hero)

சூடாமணி= சூளாமணி (ட=ள), வாள்+ போர்= வாட் போர் (ள-ட)

ஆள்= ஆட்கள், தாள்= தாட்கள்,முள்=முட் புதர்,கேள்=கேட்க (ள=ட)

சிஷ்யன்=சீடன்=சேளா (இந்தி)

பதர்= பதடி ,சக்ரம்=சகடம் (ர=ட)

ஜல்தி=சடுதி (ல=ட), கருட=கழுகு (ர=ல)

ம்ருத்யு=மரணம்= mortal (ர=ட)

கனரா வங்கி=canarese language=கன்னட (ர=ட)

Tranqubar =தரங்கம் பாடி (ர=ட)

 

அம்ருத=அமிழ்த=அமுத=Ambrosia (மேலும் சில :அமுது, அமிர்தம்)

அமிர்தம்: சங்கத் தமிழ் நூல்களிலேயே மூன்று ஒலிகள் உள்ளன

(Even in Sangam Tamil literature three different spellings are used (R=L=D)

 

உலகின் முதல் இலக்கண நிபுணரான பாணிணியும் கூட சம்ஸ்கிருதத்திலேயே ர=ல இடம் மாற்றம் பற்றி சூத்திரம் செய்திருக்கிறார்.

 

பாலிநேசியர்கள் பசிபிக் கடல் தீவுகளிலிருந்து போய் தென் அமெரிக்காவில் இன்கா நாகரீகத்தை ஏற்படுத்தியபோது தாங்கள் அங்கே இட்ட பெயர்கள் எப்படி எல்லாம் உரு மாறின என்று சொல்வதைப் பாருங்கள்:

 

Polynesians migrated to South America and established Inca civilization, argue some scholars. They give a list of Polynesian names which the Inca used in Peru. Look at the spelling changes:

INCA                       POLYNESIAN

Lampa                      Rama

Laro                       Raro

Apurima                     Apolima

Mauri                       Mauli

Atico                       Atitu

Coracora                    Porapora

Locumba                    Rotuma

This list illustrates sound changes can happen between any two languages. But we can see a pattern of R=L=D and M=V=P/B all over the world.
