The Atlanteans in India (7b)

A Source of Atlantean Knowledge

by Karl Juergen Hepke

 
When the Atlanteans, which were later on called "Aryans", reached India, was there already a high culture. Mohenjo Daro and the with it joined so called "Indus Culture" was already long ago, but the high level of this culture, which remains a mystery for science until now, was partly still alive in the now here living people, the "nagas". The invading Atlanteans killed or drove out this people, from whom some rests are found until now in remote hills. More southern lived dark skinned people with flattened nose, the "Dravideans". They made commerce as far as Sumer and Babylon and lived in towns, which knew splendour and finer lifestyle. The Atlanteans subjugated these peaceful , not warring people and incorporated them into their new state.

After the conquest of the country the newcomers returned to their original life. The farmers cultivated the conquered land and began with cattle breeding. The classes of priests and warriors reorganized and the military leaders became the first kings. A council of warriors assisted them. Each tribe was lead by a "Raja", who was advised by the council of the tribe. The tribe consisted of relative independent communities of villages, which were managed by a council of the heads of the families. Marriages with the indigenes, who belonged to an other class, were forbidden, to keep the own race, which was only a minority, clean. The word "caste" which arose later for the classes, in which were divided the people, comes from the Portuguese word "casta" = pure. The Indeans used for that the word"
varna", which means "colour". They distinguished the immigrants by the colour of their skin.

The reorganization of the state after so many years of ramble, in which were the people only a mass of warriors, lead to the recovery of the old order of classes and of family and tribe organization. The highest class was, according to the past of war, that of warriors or fighters "Kschatryas". For them it was a sin , to die in bed. The priests had the second role with large distance. Religious ceremonies were made by the king or head of the tribe and priests were only assisting. A marriage of the daughter of a warrior with a member of the caste of priests was taken as personal misfortune for the father from the warrior caste.


This changed, when lasting peace reduces the importance of the warriors and the "Brahmin" , how they were called now, reconquered step by step their important first position after the king, just like the Atlantean priests in the
Persian Empire, the "magiceans". They were, like the "druids" later on at the celts, teacher of the youth and keeper of oral tradition of history and laws and had with that all keys in their hands, to build up their position in times of peace.

At least they called the warriors inferior and appreciated them less, which had its revenge later, when India was threatened by new conquerors . The third class were the " Vaischya" , businessmen , self-employed tradesmen and free farmers. Than came the "Schudras " , physically working people, consisting mainly of indigene people, and finally the "Parias" , "the expelled ones" , for punishment to slavery condamned own people, prisoners of war and people of indigene tribes with low cultural level.

The base of the state is as in Atlantean times the farmer. Some historical researchers are diverting the name "Arya" from the Sanskrit root "riar"="to plough" and with that is "Arya" nothing but " farmer", and this agrees completely with Atlantean tradition.

The fields were shared out by the community of the village between the families of farmers and commonly irrigated. The soil could not be sold to outsiders and passed only to the heir of the family in direct male succession. The farmer was owner of the soil. There existed no extensive landed property.

But there were not only farmers , but appropriate to the high cultural level, which had reached the Atlanteans in that time, all kind of traders, able to make all kind of work in high quality. In the towns were created mighty guilds of metal-, wood-, stone- and ivory traders. Besides that there were basket-maker, interior designer, house painter, dyer, potter, fisherman, skipper of river and sea, hunter, butcher, confectioner, barber, launder of hair, dealer of flowers, cook a.s.o.. The guilds took care of order and were arbitrator in quarrels. Prices were negotiated in oriental manner and the gullible buyer unhesitatingly took for a ride.

For commerce and traffic were used beside shipping two-wheeled horse-drawn cars. Nevertheless was the exchange of merchandise difficult, for each tribe-district and each principality gathered duty for passing. Better was shipping at sea which delivered round 860 B.C. aromatic substances, spices, silk and cotton, pearls, rubins, ebony, precious stones, silver- and gold brocade to Mesopotamia, Arabia and Egypt.

About culture, religion and forms of life in this early time we know from the "Veds". This are initially- according to Atlantean tradition, which forbids all written recording, by word of mouth passed extensive works in verses, for which the Brahmin created an own language, the "Sanskrit". These "Veds" were later on partly written in "Sanskrit script" , basing on" Phoenician" letters. The Sanskrit was at that time not spoken from any tribe of the Atlanteans, but was understood by all without big problems and is with that comparable to the "German" of the bible from Luther, which also had to be found as common language.

The similarity of Sanskrit to other European languages of today is still astonishing. Here some example:

German:........eins......zwei......drei......vier............fuenf...../........bin......bist.........ist
Sanskrit:.......eka.......dva........tri..........tschatna...pantscha../....ami......asi.......asti
English:.......one.......two.......three.....four...........five....../..........am.......are.......is
French:........un........deux......troi......quatre.......cinque..../.......suis......es.......est
Spanish:.....uno.......dos.......tres......cuatro........cinco...../........soi.......eres.....es
Latin:..........unus......duo.......tres......quattuor...quinqua.../......sum.......es........est
Greek:.........heis.......dyo.......treis.....tettares......pente..../.......eimi.......ei........esti

The word "Sanskrit" means " prepared, pure, holy, perfect " it is unambigiously a language for the tradition of higher cultural values and religious matters. A script, cognate to the Phoenician and coming with that also from Atlantean sources was used since the 9th century B.C. predominantly for commerce and administration. It was later on called "Script of Brahma" and is the base of all Indian alphabets.

According to the old Atlantean tradition was the passing of knowledge by spoken word still the method of tradition of knowledge of literatur, religion and natural sciences. So it came to the today astonishing fact, that also mathematic methods were learned in form of verses for better memory. The oldest known inscriptions are that of king Aschoka, which he installed everywhere in the country, hewn into stone.

What now about these "Veds". The word "Veda" means "knowledge" and a Veda is with that a "book" of knowledge. The Indians are calling so the whole holy tradition of their early time. The veds are with that comparable to the bible of the Christians , which was at first also handed down by spoken word. Caused by this stipulated tradition by spoken word a big part of these veds got lost. Until now there are known essentially only these four.

1. The Rigveda :The knowledge of the hymns of life
2. The Samaveda : The knowledge of the songs
3. The Yahurveda : The knowledge of the formulas of sacrifice
4. The Atharvaveda : The knowledge of the magical formulas

The veds were originally old intellectual wealth of the immigrants , but were probably dyed by Indian thinking in the time of oral tradition for many centuries. Their age is guessed by Indian nationalists to 6000 years, this would be the time of Mohenjo Daro and reaches the Atlantean time long before the migration to India. So good as certain is, that a large part of the veds, as the Avesta in Persia, was imported by the immigrants.

In the time of beginning, which is also called Vedian time and reached until 500 B.C. the life had still much original Atlantean which disappeared gradually with increasing prosperity and wealth. Marriages were made by kidnapping, purchase or arrangement. Polygamy was allowed and practised mainly by the prosperous one. Than it was sufficient ,when the first wife came from the right caste. The man reigned his household as patriarch, but the wife had still much liberty, what got lost with the time more and more. A woman had decisively influence at the choice of her husband. She appeared free on festivals and offered with her husband sacrifices to God. She could study and participate at philosophical discussions. If she got widdow, she could marry again as she liked it.

Later on, under the influence of indigene way of life and the climate, changed much. Because the young, caused by the climate, got sexually mature with twelve years, existed the danger of marriages without respect to the barriere of caste, for nature is not bound to human restrictions and offers the difference as more attractive. Mainly the girls had the bad reputation to seduce the boys very early.


Because of that ,it was preferred to decide marriages already in the age of child by the parents. Until puberty the child staid at its parents, who supported the young household until it had grown incapablelegs. The wife was more and more declared incompetent and disappeared from public. She was seen in first line as mother of the children and under sexual aspects, although also the man had to perform good in the art of love, otherwise he was despised from his wife. The woman was now seen as sweet, but inferior creature, which had to be under tutelage for her whole life. In the Bhagavad Gita , the "bible" of the Hindu, is said:" Women are generally not very intelligent, and because of that, not trustworthy. Because of that, they should occupy themselves in the bounds of family tradition and their religious tasks, and than will produce their chastity and devotion a good population." At first they were under tutelage of their father, than under that of their husband and at last under that of their son.

The last liberty for the woman, primarly of the classes more below, was the participation at the festivals of spring and harvest from Atlantean times, as the feast of " Holi", which had a very boisterous character. In that feast of fertility were carried phallical symbols and imitated sexual intercourse. Men left all convention, women all shyness and also for the girls all became possible. Here was still in life something of the old rites of fertility and vegetation from Atlantean times and allowed women to break away from their strongly guarded lack of freedom, at least in the field of sexuality.

Under the ideas of Buddha was the cattle, that had provided the population until than with meat, declared as holy and untouchable , which lead to its undreamed reproduction, so that it became sooner a damage as a benefit for the country. Later on it became the holiest animal for the Hindus. Its dung serves for heating or holy salve and its urine as remedy for outer and inner lack of purity. So found the former cult of bulls of the Atlantians its Indian variation.

The high knowledge of sciences, that came to high development primarly in Babylon, left its marks also in this time of beginning in India. The priests were astronomer, astrologer, mathematician or philologist. Their greatest representative, Aryabhata, treated equations of second degree in verses, calculations of sine and of the number of "pi", which he reckoned to 3,1416. He declared the eclipse and darknes of the moon, solstice and equity of day and night, spoke from the form of earth as a ball and its daily rotation. His successors took over the Babylonian zodiac and created a calendar of twelve months, each of 30 days with 30 hours and inserted a leap month every five years. They knew in 256 B.C. our "Arabian" called numbers and used the decimal system. Beside the already named Aryabhata , were leading representatives of mathematics Brahmagupta and Bhaskara ( 1114 A.C.). The latter is seen as inventor of the radical sign and other algebraic signs.

Just as excellent was the performance of the Indians of early times in the area of chemistry and metallurgy. There is an until now shown pillar of casted iron in Delhi from 380 A.C. without any rust. Gold, silver, copper, lead, zinc and iron were extracted and worked out in high quality. There existed a theory of the structure of elements and its consisting of "atoms".

Cotton was obtained and processed already in the time of Mohenjo Daro. The name "cotton", "musselin" , kaliko" mark products of originally Indian source. Commerce with Babylon with Indian products of high quality flourished from 700 until 480 B.C., in a time, when the following generations of the immigrated Atlanteans lived in both regions. In the time of Romans India was known as most competent nation in the art of dying, tanning, making soap, blowing glass and in the production of cement. But still earlier, in the six'th century B.C. in Atlantean vedian time, India had a chemical industry and performed the art of calcinating, destillating, sublimating, the production of light without heat, of drugs for anestization and sleeping, of metal -salts, -compounds and -alloys. Indians were master in processing and hardening of steel and the production of the famous "Damascene" blades learned the Arabians from India.

Anatomy , physiology and some areas of chemistry were branches of medicine. Indians knew the whole structure of the human body, but assumed , that the heart was the place of consciousness and the nervs lead to it. The head was the place of the soul. Atreya detected round 500 B.C. that the sperm of the man contained the whole parental organism. The proof of ability for fathering was precondition for marriage and it was warned for marriage with men, who had a desease, today known as hereditary, or physical afflictions. The days of fertility of the woman were known as twelve days before menstruation and this was advised as a method of birth control. One had the opinion, that the sex of the child was influenced by style of life, food and drugs.

Surgery knew 121 instruments and made all sort of operations, even transplantations of skin to damaged visible parts of the body, and was so the beginning of beauty surgery. For 927 A.C. is known the trepanation of the skull of an Indian king under utilization of a drug called "Samohini" , that made the king unsusceptible for the pain. Hospitals existed in Ceylon already in 427 B.C. and in northern India since 226 B.C.

The relations to Babylon and Persia, the other areas of Atlantean settlement, were between 800 B.C. and 1000 A.C. so intensive, that it is often a heavy task , to find out the origin of some progress of medicine. But this is not very important, for the progress was made in all these coutries by the here settled Atlantean class of intelligence of priests, Brahmin, magicians or druids, however you will call them..

So delivers this settlement in the orient, and the here made written recording , a trustable key to the knowledge of the old Atlanteans and prooves unquestionable, that their knowledge and intelligence surpassed all otherwise known on earth at that time .

By Greek, Romans and Arabians got this knowledge, only broken into pieces, in a lot of centuries back to Europe, which was once left in mental poverty by the emigration of the leading Atlantians.

Until now it is often called, in remaining unconsciousness of the vrai source, Greek, Roman or Arabian knowledge ,or taken, even worse, for an own product.
