Indian P R Sarkar has said; The Mayan civilization is a transplanted Indian civilization. It migrated to Central America during the rule of the Pallavas of South India. The difference between them was that the Indian civilization invented the wheel (used in bullock chart and weapons). Without the wheel, the Mayan civilization lagged behind. They were forced in subsequent times to acknowledge their defeat at the hands of other civilizations.
The oldest existing artifacts of the Mayan civilization give evidence to advanced ways of life but no wheel. Their sledges were drawn by deer. (And they had boats). The Sanskrit name for America, Mayadviipa, came from the name of the Mayan civilization. During the Chola, Pandya, and Pallava dynasties there was contact between America and India (300 -1200 AD) – before Columbus discovered America (ab 1480 AD).
According common history, the Pallava dynasty was a South Indian dynasty that existed from 275 AD to 897 AD. They are mentioned in ancient Indian texts, the Puranas, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. There was war between Pandyas and Pallavas and the Cholas took over South India (903 AD). Through their naval strength they traded with the Arabs and Chinese, and captured Sri Lanka. During this medieval period India had probably the largest economy of the world.
The Trading Ships of India
Sir John Malcolm (1769 – 1833), Scottish statesman, historian and soldier in the East India Company, wrote about Indian vessels that “they are so admirably adapted to the purpose for which they are required... that Europeans were unable, during two centuries, to bring into successful practice one improvement.” Seafaring in Ancient India.

Baron von Humbolt, the Asiatic Origin of the Indian Civilizations of the Americas. "One thousand years before the birth of Columbus Indian ships were far superior to any made in Europe up to the 18th century. The influences of the Hindu-Buddhist culture of southeast Asia in Mexico and particularly, among the Maya, are incredibly strong." http://www.antropologia.uw.edu.pl/SHA/sha-02-01.pdf
In pre-Mahabharata era, the kings of southern India possessed large fleets - used for trade with the Arabian and European countries. India's links with far-off islands of the Pacific Ocean are an established fact of history. Greater India: Suvarnabhumi. ‘Indian Navy has been far superior since ages’, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmoTS4FmAf0.
Chinese Fa Hein have written that he himself traveled from South India to South America with 500 others (399-414 A.D).
Gene Matlock, author of India Once Ruled the Americas! states: "The people of India have long known that their ancestors once sailed to and settled in the Americas. They called America 'Patala,' The Underworld,' because the other side of the globe appeared to be straight down." Many more interesting things from him, http://www.viewzone.com/gene.india.html
Indian author of Surya Siddhanta, mentions the four great cities situated on four opposite ends of the world. The astronomer Bhaskaracarya: "When the sun rises at Lanka, the time at Yakakotipura, will be midday. Below the earth at Siddhapura, it will be twilight, and at Romakadesa in Europe, the time will be midnight." (Bhaskaracarya according Sarkar invented same things as Newton, Galileo and Copernicus, but before them, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bh%C4%81skara_II.
Architecture of Natives of America
Builder Deva Rajan measured with tape, compass and a lay-out story pole, two ancient Incan structures at Machu Picchu. He confirmed that locations for doors, windows, width to length, roof styles, column sizes, wall thicknesses, etc., all conform completely to the guidelines, given for buildings, in the Vastu Shastras of India. Residential and temple layouts are identical to those found in Mohenjodaro and at present all over India."First Hindu-Maya cultural dialogue in Guatemala.
In 1866, the French architect, Viollet-le-Duc, noted striking resemblances between ancient Mexican temples and those of South India. http://www.vastu-design.com/ht-article.php
The European Conquerors
Christopher Columbus wrote to the Queen of Spain: “Our European civilization will bring light to the natives in the darkness but for ourselves we will obtain gold and with gold we will be able to do what we want.” Has Religion Made Useful Contributions to Civilization? - Bertrand Russell 1930). Interestingly Columbus mistakenly called the New World inhabitants as Indians, thus the natives of Americas continue to be called 'Indians'. During his third journey Columbus came into contact with the 'Maya' people.
Indian tribe Tainos received Columbus with open arms, but the Spaniards brutalized the Indians in return. Franciscan friar urged The Taino Chief Hatuey to take Jesus to his heart so that his soul might go to heaven. Hatuey replied that "if heaven was where the Christians went, he would rather go to hell." He was was burned alive, source American Holocaust.
Bishop Diego da Landa; ‘We found a large number of their books, falsehoods of the devil, we burned them all’. Proof Vedic Culture's Global Existence - By Stephen Knapp. Pablo Jose de Arriaga in Peru burnt the ancient Vedic history, medicine, astronomy, statues, science, religion, and philosophy. Spanish told exaggerated stories of Mayan sacrifice ceremonies.
I have a personal story related. One psychic in Finland told me that I had lived one of my past lives in an Indian tribe in Amazons. When the European Christians came and tried to turn everyone into Christian, me as a 12 year old boy that time, had escaped to the jungle alone. I had lived their for years just by myself, because I had gotten lost from my tribe. I had survived by eating leaves and small animals. One day I had met another Indian tribe, and joined them, although I had much difficulty to adjust, as I couldn’t speak their language and as their habits were so different. DA
The Cultural Similarities Between India and Mayan Civilization
Will Durant, American historian, Story of Civilization: Our Oriental Heritage, described India as the most ancient civilization on earth. He offered many examples of Indian culture spreading throughout the world. “Mother India is in many ways the mother of us all”, http://veda.wikidot.com/quote:motherland
Mons Leon Delbos: ‘The influence of the civilization worked out thousands of years ago in India is around and about us in every corner of the civilized world. Go to America and you find there, as in Europe the influence of that civilization..." Hindu Raj in the World - By Krishan Lal Jain. India was the first engaged in astronomy and astrology as were the Mayans. Mayans describe how eclipses were caused by two planets (Rahu and Ketu), as in Indian myth. The Mayan calendar is similar to Vedic calendar.
Spanish Señor Lopez, in 1872, in The Aryan Races in Peru; ‘Every page of Peruvian poetry bears the imprint of (Indian epics) Ramayana and Mahabharata.’ A wall panel No. 3 at Piedras Negras, Guatemala depicts the Ramayana similar in caves in India. Ramon Mena, in the Mexican Archeology; ‘Nahuatl, Zapoteca, and Mayan languages are Hindu origin. Their writing and their personal adornments.. their system and style of construction clearly….they all speak of India and the Orient’. Michael Coe; ‘Particular technique for the manufacture of bark paper is the best evidence’, http://traffickingculture.org/encyclopedia/case-studies/grolier-codex/
German Schildmann says ancient inscriptions discovered in the caves of Peru and the United States are similar to ancient Sanskrit. Drawing of an elephant with word "PIL", is an ancient Sanskrit word (6000 years old) for an elephant. Elephants are not found in Peru and USA. The Nagas of Tibet had a similar bar and dot counting system, along with the same words, to the Naga Mayas of Mexico.
Gods of Mayans and Asiatic Indians are the same
In Honduras Charles Lindberg, found a ‘Lost City of the Monkey God‘ where legend says local people worshipped huge ‘Monkey Sculptures‘. Indian Hanuman is called 'Wilka Huemana'. (Images in Guatemala Museum and in Copan). Indian Ramayana describes Hanuman travelling to Paatala Loka (Central America). http://www.ancient-origins.net/news-history-archaeology/explorers-found-ancient-lost-city-monkey-god-almost-lose-their-faces-flesh-021179.
Mayas worshiped also Indian Shiva liunga, Sun god Surya, Lord Ganesh, Buddha. Lord Ganesha is mentioned in Inca mythology in Peru and in Mexico City. The Mayan two dark gods hold snake rope, similar to Indian Asuras and Ganesha.
Sarkar about Ganesha Puja [the worship by the Austric people]; the head of an elephant, placed on the shoulders of the deity’s body, was symbol of the superiority of the group leader. It is noteworthy that such worship was also prevalent in the non-Aryan Mayan civilization of America.
Aztec is derived from “worshiper of 8 armed Ashtak”. Gods with many hands is typical only in India. Vegetarianism, and spicy foods are common in these areas as well as in India.

Sita-Ram festival (Situa - Raimi) was celebrated in Mexico, 'Hamsworth History of the World'. US Ambassador to Mexico Poindexter, in 1930s, ‘The Ayar-Incas called the Mayan civilization "unquestionably Hindu". Mayans call Kundalini, as kultunlilni. The largest temple in Mexico City was the temple of Lord Shiva.
Similarities with the Hindu system of ceremonies, birth, marriage, cremation, gurukul and yajina are found in Central and S-America. American born Swami Tripurari asks, "What mysterious psychological law would have caused Asians, and Americans both to invent the same games, imagine similar cosmologies, and attribute the same colors to the different directions?" https://tamilandvedas.com/tag/mayas-and-hindus/.
Crystal skulls found in Central America are weighing even 5.13 kg. People claim these skulls have strange properties. Anna, the founder of one of the 13 sculls, dreamt of the native Indians’ life centuries ago. She could even hear the Indians speaking. Hewlett-Packard in 1964 found that those skulls had been made long before the first civilizations in America. http://www.ibuzzle.com/articles/mysteries-of-the-crystal-skulls.html
Sarkar; Many ancient civilizations have disappeared from the annals of history simply because they could not invent the wheel. They were able to invent the boat, but as they had not invented the wheel, they could not make carts and chariots. For this reason, the Mayan civilization had its downfall.
For the use of iron and the wheel, fire is necessary. Thus, in ancient times, after discovering fire, people began to worship it as a god, and to preserve it in certain houses through the means of a special sacrificial pyre. Soon after the invention of the wheel bullock carts were invented.
Sarkar researching; “Each day I would go to one or two different spots in the Suvarnarekha River valley in search of archaeological artifacts of ancient Rarh. One day, while searching in a spot near Muri in the Silli area, I came across a fossilized fragment of a mammoth jaw with part of the tusk still attached. There was no doubt that it would add lustre to the cultural heritage of Rarh.” In Lake Gardens, Sarkar had His own museum to store artifacts and fossils found in Ananda Nagar and other local areas. Those items include dinosaur eggs, bones, stones, rocks etc. Source, Sarkar’s books

Update; I just saw a video about Mayan traditional dance, and I'm so surprised how similar the dance is what I have seen in India, and especially the feather head man. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqWJmj43Cwg. Here is one Indian version of the similar dance number 7 called Chhau, https://youtu.be/fA1VMdHf5W0. Or here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9YnKHzKv38
