The Sands of Sarasvati and Civilization

Graham Hancock; It is a well established fact that during the Last Glacial Maxima (ice-age) the seas all over the world have shrunk and the sea level around 18000 years BP was about 130 m below the present day sea level. So, it is logical to look for such submerged civilization near areas surrounding the present day Indian coastal areas. ‘Harappan’ civilization lasted between 5300 and 2800 years BP. The cities had well lined streets, proper drainage, sanitary arrangements and excellent water conveying systems including check dams for storing water. Obviously there was a major missing link between the ancient hunter gatherer group of people and ‘Harappan’ civilization.

Biblical flood to date would have been 15,000 BC. Enoch mentions the earth tilting on its axis (I Enoch LXIV. 1-3) Two of the most surprising (mistranslated) verses in the Old Testament probably concerns Atlantis. Egyptian mythology; Age of the Gods ended around 10,000 BC because of flood. The large statues of ‘deities’ similar themes to India, Egypt and Greece.

Indicators of a catastrophy at Pleistocene 12,000 years ago; ten million frozen mammoths etc animals lay buried along the rivers of northern Siberia, North America, China. 35000 BC; first Cro-Magnon man in W-Africa and W-Europe, called “Paleo-Atlantic”. The last stage 10,000 BC, people migrating from Atlantis? 10,000 BC is also the end of the last Ice Age, with earthquakes, flooding and the poles moving according to geologists.
Sarkar writes between 1964-85: The Bay of Bengal, the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Cambay are all in the Indian Ocean. (Arabian Sea was a land link between the mass that was to become India and the mass that was to become Africa - the translator.)

Rarh and Gondwanaland:
Gondwanaland is the name given by geologists to a super-continent, which existed hundreds of millions, even billions, of years ago. And the very oldest part of that continent that has remained above water came to be called, Ráŕh. When Gondwanaland broke up and gradually metamorphosed into a number of our modern land masses, that ancient land of Ráŕh was to be found within the Indian sub-continent, occupying an area that is now mostly coextensive with the western part of West Bengal. Then came the geological birth of eastern Ráŕh, the appearance of human beings in Ráŕh. (Book: Rahr, The Cradle of Civilization, Sarkar).

The word ráŕh originated in the ancient Austric language and means a land of red (laterite) soil. The northern part of the Arabian Sea did not exist either; what existed was its southern part, which linked the Deccan peninsula with Africa, the Andamans, Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia. They were linked by [land] that lay sometimes a little above the water level, sometimes a little below.(4) In that world uninhabited by human beings, the Ráŕh of those days was older than any other land. The snow-covered mountains of Ráŕh gave birth to numerous rivers.

The Himalayas were born many crores of years after the birth of Ráŕh. The bed of the sea that was to the east of Ráŕh rose higher and higher thanks to that sand and silt, and many lakhs of years after – formed a vast plain (samatal). The people of western Ráŕh migrated to eastern Ráŕh and set up habitation. They removed the forest cover and dwelt in Samatat-Vaunga-D́abák. Forests appeared on earth…over the hard [e.g., granitic] rock of Ráŕh. This very forest of that time provided vital nectar to Ráŕh as a human habitation...invited rain clouds to Ráŕh.

Human beings appeared on the soil of Ráŕh after the ice age had retreated from its heart. The mammoths had been frozen in ice and fossilized, leaving behind elephants as their descendants. The forest-dwellers of Ráŕh, clad in leaves, bark and animal skins, lived by hunting. Thus Ráŕh became the cradle of civilization. (Sarkar's book Rahr, the cradle of civilization.)

Ráŕh was not only the starting-point of civilization, Ráŕh represented the first-ever steps towards cultural progress. People of many lands started converging on Ráŕh to hear the páincajanya, the clarion call, of humanity, and to join in singing the paean of humanity. This civilization and culture of Ráŕh were not confined to Ráŕh alone – they sailed by sea from its port of Támralipta [modern Tamluk], responding to the call of its far-off nameless and unknown friends. The superiority of Ráŕh did not lie, as a hidden agenda, in the conquest of those lands; it lay in devoting themselves to the service of those new places.

Elsewhere it was extremely cold and full of snowstorms. Rarh had the living touch of warmth so humans came there first. They founded the world’s most ancient civilization and culture, which we can call the original Rarh culture. Burdwan is the most ancient of all towns not only in Ráŕh, but it will not be unjust to assume that Burdwan is the oldest town in the world. Himalayan mountain range was formed as a result of a tremendous earthquake resulting from a volcanic eruption. Many rivers started to flow down the Himalayas.

On that long-ago morning in the remote past the golden light of civilization fell on the bosom of Ráŕh and diffused in all directions, the simple, open faces of the young men of Ráŕh in that bright dawn broke out in smiles; the flower-bedecked hair buns of the young women of Ráŕh tossed to the rhythm of a dance; and the rhythm of that dance spread amid the intoxicating fragrance of the mahul-tree groves…

The civilization of Samatat started about 8,000 years ago. About 700 years ago, during the early part of the Pathan rule, there was a devastating cyclone which submerged Samatat. After some time new grass, shrubs, plants and trees began to grow. The people of Ráŕh went to Samatat with their implements, established settlements, and began farming the vast tracts of uninhabited land. At one time there was one vast expanse of land which stretched from old Gondwanaland to Australia. The original inhabitants of this vast region were the ancient Austrics.

In India and Central Asia people learned the use of the wheel in very ancient times, but no matter how long ago they learned it, they learned it after they learned the use of iron. That is, first they invented the chariot wheel, and then afterwards turned the wheel into a weapon. The boomerang is also a type of discus used by the Maoris of Australia. (Aborigines came from South India to Australia due to Aryan exploitation).

Hence agriculture started, people learnt how to grow straw, and they began to build straw houses on the ground. They were able to travel and settle wherever they chose, and they achieved a measure of stability and security in social life. This development led human beings to contemplate something higher than the physical or psychic spheres, and they began to think about spirituality.

So, we can say that human civilization started about 15,000 years ago, and that the Vedic civilization is the oldest civilization in the world. However, a full-fledged civilization, with the four symbols of advancement – agriculture, the wheel, dress and script – start ed only about 7,000 years ago. Pictorial letters were invented less than 7,000 years ago. People knew how to make steel in the time of the Mahábharata 3,500 years ago.

Hence we find that in the Mahábhárata age,(Ab 4000 years bc…) there was surgery, ayurveda, vaedyaka shástra, viśa cikitsá, and homoeopathy; and people were not unacquainted with mesmeric treatment either. (But after Buddha touching the dead body was considered to be most undesirable. There was simultaneously an invasion from outside India.

Austrics: Austric population were almost equal to the Aryans intellectually, but in the practical and spiritual spheres they gradually lagged behind due to the comparative lack of dynamism of their society. They introduced Chat Puja, the worship of the sun goddess. Gańesha Pújá was also prevalent in the non-Aryan Mayan civilization of America. There was contact between America and India before Columbus’s discovery of America. And the aborigines and Maoris of Australia and New Zealand all belong to the Austric branch.

Beginning of Civilization: From ancient times many groups of people came into existence. Some of them somehow managed to drag on, some became extinct and some continued to exist in a metamorphosed form. A civilization starts in the hill stage, develops in the plain stage, and matures in the delta stage. Rárh was rich in forest resources, and most of its rivers, in those days were full of water all throughout the year

The radiant literature of Ráŕh was born. Kapil wrote in the classical language of that time, Sanskrit. The literature of Ráŕh was handed down verbally, and did not attain the status of book form. The composition of the Rgveda [began] about fifteen thousand years ago: Scripts were totally unknown in those days. It would not be incorrect to say that although the human race came onto the earth about a million years ago, its civilization started only about fifteen thousand years ago.

The Vedic civilization began around fifteen thousand years ago but its written records date back only five thousand years. The Aryans invaded India before Shiva´s time. Prior to the Aryan migration to India, the ideas of the common people were based on the science of Tantra.

The original home of the Aryans was in the northern part of Central Asia. By descent they were a fair, tall and healthy race…But the merciless nature of Central Asia made their lives unbearable: snowstorms diminished the numbers both of their people and of their animals, and there was a chronic shortage of animal fodder. Just to survive, they had to spend almost all their time collecting food. It also led to perpetual inter-group skirmishes and even slaughter. Aryans They believed that the innovative rśis and intellectual munis were not men of ordinary stuff, but superior beings who heard the words of wisdom directly from the mouths of the gods.

The non-Aryans were, on the whole, divided into three populations. Of these, the Negro-Austric Dravidians were the most developed intellectually and spiritually. The proof that the non-Aryans, particularly the Dravidians, were a highly developed community in regard to knowledge, learning, intellect, city and town building, cultivation of science, and social order and discipline, is traceable in every line of the Rámáyańa.

From the non-Aryans the Aryans acquired a well-knit social system, a subtle insight, spiritual philosophy and Tantra sádhaná…individual sádhaná ranked very high. The Austric society was content to practise the extroversial aspects of Tantra (witchcraft, invultuation, magic, magical incantation for evil purposes, hypnotism, etc.) It was the Tantrics, and not the Vedics, who invented script and acoustic science.

Shiva developes and brings a new life for tantra ab 7000 bc: After the Aryan settlement in India a great man was born into the non-Aryan society. He was a great Tantric - a great yogi Shiva. As the result of His Tantra sádhaná He attained extraordinary powers, which He employed for the good of humanity. We can still observe today that Shiva is the god of all, regardless of caste or colour, high or low, learned or ignorant, Brahman or pariah.

Not only in India, but in quite a large part of the world, in every sphere of life, the laws and injunctions of Shiva alone prevailed for a long time. (Sarkar told also that Shiva used to travel with yak. He went also to Alps. The Alps was the place where the seed of life actually came from Mars, said Sarkar).

A major change took place during the days of Lord Shiva (7000 bc) towards the end of the Rk Vedian period (which lasted 10,000 years). Sadashiva wanted to systematise all those expressions of human life – dance, music, medicine, civilization (social life, family), in fact, every aspect of life. Is it not a fact that present intellectual currents originated from the fountain of their wisdom?

Today’s civilization is not a civilization in the true sense of the term. It is this very split personality: the inner personality and the outer personality differ, and that difference is gradually increasing. Such a split personality is rarely found among the rural masses…

The Aryans tried to establish the Vedic religion by destroying the Austric religion. In the Buddhist period, particularly during the reign of King Binbisai of Magadh, Buddhism was imposed upon non-Buddhists. Later, the Hindus forcibly converted Buddhists and Jains to Hinduism.

In Saḿskrta, Sara means “large pond or lake of white effulgence.” The reference to Sarasvatii in the Vedas is the river Sarasvati (Gaunga, Jamuna and Sarasvati): “Oh, mother Sarasvatii, the greatest of all rivers.”

Phallic worship was common in India, Southeast Asia, and Central Asia, and also widely prevalent in Central America. Some think that this phallic worship was brought to America... The worship of Shiva-liunga was introduced about 2500 years ago.The phallus worshippers of Central America belonged to the Mayan civilization; thus America is called Máyádviipa in Sanskrit (Mayan Island).
Here ab possible Lemuria between Australia and India; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kumari_Kandam, also called as Kumari Nadu is the name of a legendary sunken continent mentioned in early Tamil literature and some Sanskrit literature. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Tamil nationalists identify Kumari Kandam with Lemuria, a hypothetical "lost continent". The Tamil literary work Manimekhalai, mentions about multiple Tsunamis in the ancient city of Poompuhar and was swallowed up by the sea. This event is supported by archeological finds of submerged ruins off the coast of modern Poompuhar.[13][14

Atlantis. According the book; Who is afraid of Tantric Guru: Sarkar told 1979, that Old Atlantis is underwater, except some parts of it can be seen in Spain, Portugal, Ireland and Iceland. Sarkar advised that there should be cultural, geological, zoological etc surveys around the coast of Iberia - some new clues to be found…but Iberia needs to get economic support for survey. Spain is poor country. For Iberia the past was bright, the present is cloudy and the future will be sunshine. If the EU common market will take place then the Spain and Portugal would benefit.

Anyhow there are many speculations that Atlantis would be somewhere in Indian Ocean. It might be rather Lemuria, but anyhow lets see.

Atlantis in Indian scriptures situated around India, The ancient Sanskrit writings contain several descriptions of Atlantis, and assert that Atlantis was destroyed as the result of a war between the gods and Asuras (Titans). The Vishnu Purana, speaks of "Atala, the White Island". (Wilford, 1808). 
The terms "Atala" and "White Island" are mentioned also by the Bhavishya Purana; Samba made a journey to Saka Dwipa, located "beyond the salt water" looking for the Magas (magicians), worshippers of the Sun. The Mahabharata also refers to "Atala, the White Island", an "island of great splendour." (Santi Parva, Section CCCXXXVII). 
The Santi Parva describes Atala as being inhabited by white men who never have to sleep or eat (Ibid.) Herodotus (450 B.C.) also describes Atlanteans who "never dream and eat no living thing". (History, Book IV). Indian city Tripura, called "the Triple City" was like Atlantis triple city. Hastinapura was called the "City of the Pillars". In the Surya Siddhanta, an ancient Sanskrit text on astronomy, (W. D. Whitney, 1860) mentions an "island" (dwipa), Jambu Dwipa, surrounded by rings of alternating land and water.

Atlantis was destroyed around 9650 BC, according to Plato. Plato described Atlantis as being ruled by ten kings before its demise. The Phoenician Sanchuniathon (1193 BC) calls the same kings "Aleteans", 600 years before Plato.

The Gulf of Cambay in Indian sea - the mysterious Atlantis? At the present in Finnish cinema´s there is science fiction movie: Sands of Sarasvati, http://forbiddenplanet.co.uk/blog/2008/the-sands-of-sarasvati/. (Sarasvatin hiekkaa), which author Risto Isomäki believes ancient Atlantis to be found in Gulf of Gambay.

Laura Mäkelä explains http://omasana.fi/u/lauramakela on 2007: On 2001 the Indian National Institute of Ocean Technology, Niot, informed ab their findings by sonars; two big under water cities on the bottom of Gulf of Cambay. When the Niot-team uplifted different artifacts - some of them were 9500 years old, and even 16 800 years old broken clay pots was found. All this was perhaps too much for the global main stream media as they refuse to report.

The sea level rose hundred meters due to melting of the ice cap. The area of Sarasvati river civilization was saved only due to the sake that the Sarasvati river had already dried long ago. This area could be the one Platon wrote down ab 2 500 years ago. According Platon the Atlantis was huge delta-area, where several rivers flowed through – just like in the Gulf of Cambay. Besides Platon described coconuts, canals and elephants. Although Platon heard Atlantis to be on west - west from where? 

Video remote viewing Atlantis; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tp-jqtdfR4I. This could also possibly explain why there are two kind of stories ab where Atlantis was. Courtney Brown explains that in time of Atlantis, they made a hole on the other side of planet, near Australia, but it caused effect to other side of world where Atlantis was???
