The word ‘Pancha Janah’ in the Vedas is translated as five ‘RACES’ that came from ‘outside India’ according to foreign gangs that translated our Hindu Vedas. They criminalized Vedic Hindus, because the western criminals themselves massacred native populations in America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South America and Jallinanwala Bagh  in Amritsar, India.  The book ‘Roll of Honour’ gives the list of people they hanged in Bengal.

Let us analyse more mantras in the Bhumi Sukta of Atharvana Veda (AV).

Let me continue from Mantra/Stanza 13

(please see the attachments in English and Sanskrit for full text)

The Hymn to Earth- Bhumi Sukta- gives us more details about the Vedic society in addition to description of Nature.

Vedic society had five important groups and they went out of India to spread Vedic culture through out the world. Their presence is very evident in Asia and Europe and less seen in other parts of the world.

My comments

Mantra 13

Here the poet describes the Yaga Kunda- Vedic Fire Altar and the tall bright poles erected at that time before the invocation. And he seeks the blessings from the mother earth with these structures on her.

Sangam Tamil literature describes the innumerable Yaga Poles in Pandya Kingdom with the Sanskrit word Yupam (See Purananuru 15 and 224). We also hear the Rajasuya Yagam done by the Choza king in the presence of Pandya and Chera kings and poetess Avaaiyar as a chief guest (see Purananuru  367). And Kalidasa, the greatest poet of India of first century BCE says that the Pandya king is always with wet clothes after the Avabrutha Snana (Ritual bath during Fire Ceremonies).

(See Kalidasa’s Raghuvamsa 6-61 for Asvamedha Avabrutha Snana of Pandya King and Agastya Maharishi; and my article in 2013)

Archaeologists were surprised to see Yupa Pillars of King Mulavarman of Fourth Century CE in the so-called virgin forests of Borneo in Indonesia.

And we have very clear archaeological evidence in Turkey (See Bogazkoy inscription in Wikipedia) dated 1380 BCE. We also have evidence of Hindu presence in Egypt with Dasaratha letters (also known as Amarna letters; see Wikipedia) Central Asia is dotted with Sanskrit inscriptions. So, we have very clear proof of Hindu migration from India. Mayan civilization proved our presence in South America (all the details are in my old articles in this blog).

So, the poet’s description of earth with bright tall Yupa poles is justified.

And as usual poet prays to Mother Earth to bless ‘US’ not ‘me’.

He prays that earth should prosper and should bless us to prosper.

Sanskrit word Vardha= develop, grow is important in this 13th Mantra.


Mantra 14

He prays to mother earth to help them defeat the enemies like before. Two important messages are there. It is a continuous fight against enemies; they fought and won earlier also. The enemies mentioned here may be criminals who fight with good people or the people who damage earth. The enemies are said to attack the Vedic Hindus with weapons and ‘thoughts’. So we understand that there was psychological black mailing. We see in all translations of Westerners this psychological blackmailing. They divided Hindu society as Aryans and others with capital ‘A’ for Aryans. They gave the seal of a’ Race’ that came from outside India. Max Muller gang and Marxist gang did this to Hindus. In all other religious books, we find enemies and there they are baddies, but here in India they are aborigines. So, this type of THOUGHT enemies also spread hatred according to the poet.


Mantra 15

The poet mentioned the FIVE RACES here according to English translation. Races is a wrong word here. The Mantra says Pancha Janah. Janah= people(s).  We see Chera, Choza and Pandya in Tamil Nadu fighting continuously among themselves for at least 1500 years. They worshipped same Hindu Gods, followed same Hindu culture and spoke same Tamil language. No one showed them as three RACES. Thank God, western scoundrels did not poison Tamil poems! Foreign translators of Vedas were criminals and scoundrels who came to plunder India. So they used all mischievous, poisonous words wherever possible. Arya should be translated as ‘cultured, civilized, educated’ and not with capital ‘A’ to show them as a separate RACE. One must be careful when one reads English translations of Hindu scriptures. Sayana, whom they quote very often, never mentioned Aryans coming into India from outside. And 2000 year old Sangam Tamil literature also considered the society from Kashmir to Kanyakumari as one indigenous group.

And in this 15th Mantra we see a society where even birds (bipeds) and animals( quadrupeds )  are included as part of one group that enjoys walking on earth. This broad view is reflected in many Tamil poems until recently by Bharati and Vallalar Ramalinga Swamikal. They sang that the plants and animals were their kith and kin.

The key words are Pancha Janah, Dvi pada/bipeds and Chatush pada /quadrupeds.

Pedestal, foot, feet, pedestrian, pedal and innumerable words in Tamil and English are derived from this Vedic Sanskrit word ‘Pada’.

Tamils also use it in the same way following Vedas. (Pada= p/adi for steps, foot, feet, in prosody ADI etc)


Mantra 16

It is very interesting to see the poet praying for blessings from all creatures on earth. Another proof for considering animals and birds as their own kith and kin. They respected Nature so much that they sought blessings from them. If this thought had continued until today, there would be no need for Department of Environmental studies in universities or ministry for environment or Green Party anywhere in the world.

And the poet refers Honey words. Honey word is associated with the Vedic Twins Asvins throughout the Rig Veda ( RV).

Tamil poet Tiruvalluvar also wonder (Kural 100) how come people use unripe words when fruity words are available

Using unripe/harsh words when fruity/pleasing words are available is like eating green/unripe fruits while there are ripe ones.

Honey word in RV and AV is a beautiful one.

We have seen 16 mantras out of 63 in this hymn.

New Delhi, Jan. 14: Indians migrated to Australia over 4,000 years ago and intermingled with the natives there, a genetic study has suggested, challenging the existing view that Australian Aboriginal populations remained largely isolated until the Europeans arrived in the late 18th century.

The international team of researchers that conducted the study said the migration seemed to coincide with changes in stone tool-making fashions and the introduction of wild dogs called “dingos” to Australia.

Scientists have known through earlier studies that modern humans dispersed out of Africa about 65,000 years ago and moved into India, the Andamans and Southeast Asian islands.

One such migratory wave some 40,000 years ago brought the ancestors of the Aborigines into Australia where, under prevailing ideas, they remained largely isolated till the British established settlements there in the 1780s.

The new study, published today in the US journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, has detected genetic evidence for a “substantial gene flow between Indian populations and Australia” long before the Europeans arrived.

“We’ve estimated the amount of Indian contribution to Australian genomes at about 10 per cent,” said Irina Pugach, a scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany and the first author of the study.

(What is not written below is that Australians went from South India)

First humans who crossed the Bering Strait some 15,000 years ago had indigenous Australian DNA that is now found in the bloodline of South America tribes, study finds

  • Previous work found ancient Australian DNA in modern-day Amazonians 
  • However, a new study finds the ancestral DN runs deeper in South America
  • A genetical analysis found tribes along the Pacific coast have the DNA
  • Ancient Australians migrated to Asia where they integrated with people
  • Those people traveled across the Bering Strait Land Bridge to North America
  • Experts think they stuck along the Pacific coast as they moved to South America
  • This explains why ancient Australian DNA is not found in North American natives




One more Mystery in the Rig Veda: Who are the Pancha Janah?

5 hands

Research paper No 1956

There are lots of unsolved mysteries in the Rig Veda, the oldest book in the world. One of the unsolved mystery is the word “PANCHA JANAAHA”. It means FIVE PEOPLES. As usual the foreign “scholars” stood like Nava Grahas looking at different directions with different views. Even among the Hindu scholars Yaska and Sayana, there is a difference of opinion. It is very interesting to study various explanations.

The Vedic Index by Keith and Macdonell says:

Panca-janaah, the five peoples, are mentioned under various names in Vedic literature. Who were meant by the five is very uncertain.

The Aitareya Brahmana explains the five to be gods, men, Gandharvas and Apsarasses, snakes/Nagas and the Fathers/departed souls.

Aupamanyava (in the Yaska’s Nirukta 3-8) held that the four castes and the Nisadas made up the five, and Sayana (on RV 17,9)is of the same opinion. Yaska thinks that the five are the Gandharvas, Fathers/departed people, Gods, Asuras and Rakshasas (Nirukta).

No one of these explanations can be regarded as probable.


Foreigners’ interpretations

Roth and Geldner think that all the peoples of the earth are meant; just as there are four quarters, there are peoples to the four quarters with the Aryan folk in the middle.

Zimmer opposes this view on the ground that the inclusion of all peoples in one expression is not in harmony with the distinction so often made between Aryan and Dasa. After long explanation he concludes that they are five tribes of the Anus, Druhyus, Yadus, Turvasas, and Purus who are all mentioned in one or two hymns of the Rig Veda (1-108-8; 7-18).

Hopkins has combated Zimmer’s view, but his own opinion rests mainly on his theory that there was no people named Turvasa, but only the King of the Yadus called Turvasa and that theory is not very probable.

My comments: No two clocks agree; no two foreigners agree on Vedic matters. So we must rely on Yaska the earliest person to explain the word. He lived around 850 BCE. Moreover he was the one who knew the culture and lived nearer to the Vedic times. Another point is that the meaning may change in course of time. For instance we in our Panchayajna, give offerings to Brahma/ Vedic recitation, Deva/god, Manusya/guests, Pitru/ departed souls,  and Bhuta/Living beings (animals).

More over the very grouping of five tribes or five sets of people show that they have been living together for long in the same place. Otherwise the phrase “five peoples” is not possible to use in so many places.

In the Satapata Brahmana and the Aitareya Brahmana, the five people are opposed to the Bharatas, and in the former work seven people are alluded to.


Shrikant G.Talageri in his book The Rig Veda – A Historical Analysis makes a passing reference:

“Traditional history knows of many different streams of peoples, but the two main streams are of those belonging to the Solar race of the Ikshvakus, and those belonging to the Lunar race of the Ailas. The Ailas are further divided into five main branches: the Yadus, Turvasas, Druhyus, Anus and Purus (but Talageri did not mention anything about Pancajanah here).

A.Kalyanaraman in his scholarly work “Aryatarangini”, says

“Apart from the Bharatas, four other principal Aryan clans inhabited the Sapta Sindhu and were collectively known as Panchajanah. These were Trustus, the Anus, the Druhyus and the Turvasas or Yadus.

Kalhana’s Rajatarangini says

Commentary on verse 3-353 (ruler of Pacajanah)

This is an intriguing word with many possible meanings. It may mean

1).The four castes with the barbarians as the fifth, see the exposition in Saarirabhaasya on Brahmasutras 1-4, 2-13

2).The Five classes of beings viz. the gods, men, Gandharvas, Nagas and the Pitr (departed souls)

3).Or does it possibly mean the Panchayats as we know them.

(it shows that even in the 12th century CE, people were not sure about the meaning)


P T Srinivasa Iyengar in his book, “The History of the Tamils” has a long shot at this word:

“One Vedic phrase seems reminiscent of the division of the people into five regional tribes and that is Pancajanah. This mysterious phrase has been attempted to be explained by various writers, ancient and modern, but by none satisfactorily. I have made the conjecture that it must refer to the five tribes of pre-Aryan times, but scholars who know nothing of Tamil literature and who refuse to consider the necessity of historical continuity between pre Aryan India and Arya India have been unable to appreciates the value of this conjecture.


Panchajana and Paanchajanya

Krishna’s victorious conch has a special name PANCHAJANYA. It is in the Bhagavad Gita. The story is that there was a demon called Panchajana in the sea. He lived in the form of a conch shell. He seized the son of Sandipani under whom Krishna had his School education. He learnt the use of arms in Sandipani School. When he learnt that his teacher’s son was abducted, he swung into action, killed the demon and rescued Sandipani’s son. Then he used the conch shell of the demon. That is called Paanchajanya. Krishna had fought several naval battles from his naval base at Dwaraka in Gujarat. I have explained his naval battles with sea pirates, Nivata kavachas in another article (See Hindu Gods’ Naval attacks against Pirates, posted by me on 26 April 2012).

Panchajanah still remains a Mystery!
