Europe is indeed connected to Vedic Sanatan religion from a very early period.
Are we all the victims of a carefully carved conspiracy which we have been living for more than 1000s of years? Why did they lie to us that the world has a different set of civilisations instead of telling us that we all were one. We share common ancestry, we were all devoted to one cosmic energy, one cause, humanity?
Ever Since monothiest religion came into existence there have been continued dedicated efforts and propaganda to malign the native religions be it Celtic, Nordic, Baltic, Mayan, Arabic or Vedic.
To an extent they have managed to wipe out the native religions from many regions by burning libraries after libraries, school of thoughts, and people who were found to be endorsing the same and thus they managed to rule on people based on false narratives. But time is changing and it’s changing fast. In this new age no propaganda will survive anymore, no falsehood will be passed without countering it and neither will people believe it. World is
waking up to the reality that we are one and only truth prevails.
People of Europe specially Celtic and Germans call themselves as children of Danu which stands for “Mother Goddess similar to what we have as Mother Saraswathi “A river goddess” in the rig Veda. If you look at the Celtic people, they call themselves “Tuatha De Danaan”and German had a similar name. All the ancient rivers in Europe like The Danube and many other rivers are called “Don” in Russia, Scotland, England, France reflect this.
Danube which flows to the black sea is their most important river and could reflect their eastern Origin.
In fact the term Danu appears to form the foundation of Indo-EU identity at the base of Illyro- Venetic, Italo-Celtic, Germanic, Hellenic and Balto-Slavic elements. Even the northern Greeks were called Danuni. If you read the Annals and history written by Tacitus The German claimed to be descendants of the Manus , The son of Tuisto. Very striking similarity
found in between Tuiso and a Vedic father-creator Sky God “Tvashtar”, who is also a name for the father of Manu.
In Rig-Veda Tvashtar has been mentioned as the father of lord Indra, who possesses his thunderbolt called “Vajra” in sanskrit . And as you all know Lord Indra has often been seen having disagreements with his father Tvasthar and he always wanted to surpass him.
Elsewhere Tvashars son is Vritra, whom Lord Indra kills by cutting off his head. Indra slays the dragon, Vritra, who lays at the foot of the mountain withholding the waters and releases the seven rivers to flow into the sea. In several instances, Vritra is called Danava, the son of the Goddess Danu who is connected to the sea.
This is just one of the cases where we have just tried researching a little and could establish a deep ancient connection between the people of the 2 great civilizations and there can be many many other examples which can be researched and debated.
Let’s look at some more examples:
If you look through the names carefully, They will tell you a secret. a story.
Let’s take a example of Name of these animals
For Elephant- in Sanskrit we call it “íbha”, Mycenean they call it “erepa”, Greek call ot el-éphas, Latin call it ebur, Hittite call it laḫpa and Slavic velibodŭ,
Another example For “Ape” – In Sanskrit we call it “Kapi”, Greek they call it kēpos, In Germanic its api, in Irish its apa, in Welsh it’s Epa and in Slavic they call it opica.
These names means just not the name but it gives you the strong hint that wherever that common ancestors of the Indians, Greeks, Romans, Nordic, Teutons, Celts, Hittites & Slavs came from, there were also elephants & apes.
And that opens up a new interesting situation to look into and that is, If you look into the place of origin of these 2 animals “even to this date” you will only find 2 places on earth where you find both animals, that’s Africa and India. All animal names preserved in the Indo-European branches are species native to India, and some like the ape are to be found meaningfully ONLY in India.
It becomes more interesting when you see Irish people from a small isolated island, which physically has had no contact with Apes ever since they left their original home, remember the name of an animal.
The ancestors of the Vedics, Greeks, Iranians, Romans, Germanic tribes, Celts, Slavic, Baltics etc once worshipped the same set of Gods and share common ancestry. When they broke away from each other around 6000 years ago, the names of their gods mutated-becoming almost unrecognizable except oldest and the only one “Vedic Branch” which
preserved the original vocabulary, name of gods etc. All other branches show heavy inflow of loan words from languages like Uralic, Semitic, Old European etc. The more you migrate, the more influences you absorb from outside.
Only with the help of Vedic could colonial linguists still compare and identify the highly mutated gods of other branches. For example, the Norse gods Vanir are related to Greek Hermes & Pan. But you can’t connect them, unless you individually compare them to Vedic Saramā & Paṇi, explained in Rigveda & Jaiminīya Brāhmaṇa .
Norse & Greek, by themselves, are impossible to connect.
This crucial fact was well known to AIT (Aryan Invasion theory) propagandists, they couldn’t explain it, so they simply swept it under the carpet. One of them (McDonell) admitted this- “Vedic gods are closer to the physical phenomena they represent, than the gods of any other Indo European mythology”
Let’s look at the generic word they use for “God” in most ancient times, that is ‘Asura, Deva & Bhaga’ .
And we know this Because all the branches preserve at least one of these forms.
- Deva – This most common though not the oldest Vedic term is found preserved
in the following branches-.
- In Latin they call it Deus,
- in Avestan its daeva (=demon),
- In Germanic its tiw,
- Old Norse – tivar,
- Slavic – divu,
- Baltic – diev-,
- Irish – dia and
- Welsh duw
And the modern English ‘deity’, ‘divine’ etc by derivation
2. Asura- Most Indians would give it a -ve connotation. But in Early & pre-Rig Vedic
times, it was another word for ‘God’. Statistically- Asura is used in a positive
sense 59 times in the Rig Veda & only 12 times in a negative sense – that too
only in late verses (Shendge 1947:49).
Asura, as a term for God, is preserved in the following branches-
- In Avestan they call it Ahura.
- In Norse its Aesir , As-gard (city of gods).
- Runic ansuR
- Hittite hassu
- Old Irish eissi
3. Bhaga- A Vedic deity of good fortune & fertility.
It is seen preserved in-
- Avestan Baga
- Slavic Bogu
- Lithuanian bog-
- Greek Phoibos
- Kassite Bugas
- Phrygian Bagaios
- What about the word ‘God’ itself?
The word God itself derived from Vedic scripture, It comes from Gothic gup & old high Gothic
‘got’. They derive from proto-Germanic ‘*ghu-to-m’ which is cognate with Vedic ‘húta-m’ –
‘That which is invoked’ or ‘huta-m’- ‘That which is sacrificed’.
- When Vedic gods went west
- In Veda we call it Lord Varuna- King of Asuras, in the highest heaven. Laws of
creation. Lord of the oceans
- In Greek they called it Ouranos – Father of the old gods
- In Latin its Uranus.
- In Iranian-Varuna is one of 101 names of Ahura
- In Hittite its Wurun
- In Mittani its Uruwna
- In Baltic its Velinas
- In Norse its Ver=sea
Like we have already told you about ‘Tvashtar” -‘Sky God.
- Greek Zeus patér
- Latin Ju-piter, Deus
- Hittite Siu-s
- Germanic Tiwaz
Agni- god of fire, conveyor of sacrificial homa to the gods
- In Slavic its pronounced as Ogon
- In Latin – ignis
- In Lithuanian its ugnis
- In Latvian its uguns
Despite the importance of fire in Zoroastrianism, this Indo-European deity is not preserved in
the Iranian Avesta.
Aryaman – Member of the oft invoked triad ‘Mitra-Varuna-Aryaman’. Guardian of
- In Iranian its Airyaman
- In Mycenaean its Are-mene
- In Greek its Ar-eu-s
- In Norse its Irmin
- In Gaulish Celtic they call it Ariomanus
- In Irish Celtic its called Eremon
Can we just ignore this by saying that it’s just a coincidence? Or could we just say that it’s just a name that matches or they were following different religions and so on. The time has arrived when we humans regardless of the geographical location should connect to each other and dig deeper into these ancient facts.
