Even More to the Story?
In his History of the Jews, the Jewish scholar and theologian Flavius Josephus (37 – 100 A.D.), wrote that the Greek philosopher Aristotle had said:
“…These Jews are derived from the Indian philosophers; they are named by the Indians Calani.” (Book I:22.)
Clearchus of Soli wrote:
“The Jews descend from the philosophers of India. The philosophers are called in India Calanians and in Syria Jews. The name of their capital is very difficult to pronounce. It is called ‘Jerusalem.’”
“Megasthenes, who was sent to India by Seleucus Nicator, about three hundred years before Messiah, and whose accounts from new inquiries are every day acquiring additional credit, says that the Jews ‘were an Indian tribe or sect called Kalani…’” (Anacalypsis, by Godfrey Higgins, Vol. I; p. 400.”
There are certain striking similarities between the Hindu god Brahm/Brahma and his consort Sarai-svati, and the Jewish Abram/Abraham and Sarai, that are more than mere coincidences. What is additionally interesting is that in all of India there is only one temple dedicated to Brahma, this cult originally dedicated to the one true God, is the third largest Hindu sect.
In his book Moisés y los Extraterrestres, Mexican author Tomás Doreste states,
Voltaire was of the opinion that Abraham descended from some of the numerous Brahman priests who left India to spread their teachings throughout the world; and in support of his thesis he presented the following elements: the similarity of names and the fact that the city of Ur, land of the patriarchs, was near the border of Persia, the road to India, where that Brahman had been born.
The name of Brahma was highly respected in India, and his influence spread throughout Persia as far as the lands bathed by the rivers Euphrates and Tigris. The Persians adopted Brahma and made him their own. Later they would say that the ‘god’ arrived from Bactria, a mountainous region situated midway on the road to India. (pp. 46-47.)
Bactria (a region of ancient Afghanistan) was the locality of a prototypical Jewish nation called Juhuda or Jaguda, also called Ur-Jaguda. Ur meant “place or town.” Therefore, the Bible was correct in stating that Abraham came from “Ur of the Chaldeans.” “Chaldean,” more correctly Kaul-Deva (Holy Kauls), was not the name of a specific ethnicity but the title of an ancient Hindu Brahma priestly caste who lived in what are now Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the Indian state of Kashmir.
It is possible that the name of the Bible character Abraham might not have actually been a personal name, but rather the hereditary title of a priest who was a member of this caste! This would make sence as linguistically the name’s meaning is disputed.
“The tribe of I[y]oud or the Brahmin Abraham, was expelled from or left the Maturea of the kingdom of [Iy]Oude in India and, settling in Goshen, or the house of the Sun or Heliopolis in Egypt, gave it the name of the place which they had left in India, Maturea.” (Anacalypsis; Vol. I, p. 405.)
“He was of the religion or sect of Persia, and of Melchizedek.”(Vol. I, p. 364.)
“The Persians also claim Ibrahim, i.e., Abraham, for their founder, as well as the Jews. Thus we see that according to all ancient history the Persians, the Jews, and the Arabians are descendants of Abraham. (p.85) …We are told that Terah, the father of Abraham, originally came from an Eastern country called Ur, of the Chaldees or Culdees, to dwell in a district called Mesopotamia. Some time after he had dwelt there, Abraham, or Abram, or Brahma, and his wife Sara or Sarai, or Sara-iswati, left their father’s family and came into Canaan. The identity of Abraham and Sara with Brahma and Saraiswati was first pointed out by the Jesuit missionaries.” (Vol. I; p. 387.)
In the magazing, Indic Ideas in the Graeco-Roman World, by Subhash Kak, taken from IndiaStar online literary magazine; p.14, “The drying up of the Sarasvati around 1900 BCE, which led to a major relocation of the population centered around in the Sindhu and the Sarasvati valleys, could have been the event that caused a migration westward from India. It is soon after this time that the Indic element begins to appear all over West Asia, Egypt, and Greece.”
Round about 1900 BC, the Indian cult of Brahm was carried to the Middle and Near East by several different Indian groups after a severe rainfall and earthquake tore Northern India apart, even changing the courses of the Indus and Saraisvati rivers. The classical geographer Strabo tells us just how nearly complete the abandonment of Northwestern India was.
“Aristobolus says that when he was sent upon a certain mission in India, he saw a country of more than a thousand cities, together with villages, that had been deserted because the Indus had abandoned its proper bed.” (Strabo’s Geography, XV.I.19.)
The exodus of refugees out of ancient India did not occur all at once but over a period of at least 1500 years. If all these refugees of India’s ruling casts were exclusively of Indian heritage, why doesn’t history mention them?
They are known to history as as Kassites, Hittites, Syrians, Assyrians, Hurrians, Arameans, Hyksos (another name for Hebrews), Mittanians, Amalekites, Aethiops, Phoenicians, Chaldeans, and many more.
The problem is that Biblical scholars have wrongly taught that these are ethnicities indigenous to Western Asia, rather than Cast Names of ancient India, or as this author might propose, was the fleeing population of the fallen and fragmented great Empire of Nimrod, which spread from Spain and the Atlantic Ocean across central Asia to Japan and the Pacific Ocean, after the incident with the Tower of Babel.
History books have chosen to call these fleeing peoples the “Indo-Europeans,” thus leaving it unclear to us where these people were really from.
“The people of India came to realize their social identity in terms of Varna and Jati (societal functions or caste); not in terms of races and tribes.” (Foundations of Indian Culture; p. 8.)
There are some amazing parallels betweent the Biblical story of Abraham, Hindu mythology and geographical locations inside modern India and Kashmir. Here are some few examples:
In Hindu mythology, Sarai-Svati is Brahma’s sister. The bible gives two stories of Abraham. In this first version, Abraham told Pharaoh that he was lying when he introduced Sarai as his sister. In the second version, he also told the king of Gerar that Sarai was really his sister. However, when the king scolded him for lying, Abraham said that Sarai was in reality both his wife and his sister! “…and yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.” (Genesis 20:12.)
In India, a tributary of the river Saraisvati is Ghaggar. According to the Bible, Hagar was Sarai’s maidservant. Notice the similarities of Ghaggar, and Hagar?
A third mini-version of the Abraham story turns him into another “Noah.” We know that a something significant happened to cause God to order Abraham out of the Brahaman region. We also know that historically there was in that region a significant flooding problem and this is confirmed in Scripture:
“…Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, Even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor; and they served other gods. And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan.” (Joshua 24:2-3.)
Genesis 25 mentions some descendants of Abraham’ concubine Ketura:
Some descendants of Noah were:
Such repetition in the Bible is often a way to mark significant events when they repeat themselves.
Hindu Castes and the Bible?
There were litereally dozens of Hindu hereditary casts and this author would like to propose that the history of Middle Eastern culture and tribal sects might be more easily understood when viewed from the perspective of the cultural sects of this fallen Empire of Nimrod.
Jerusalem was a Hittite (Indian/Nimrodian hereditary leadership caste) city at the time of Abraham’s death. In Genesis 23:4, Abraham asked the Jerusalem Hittites to sell him a burial plot. The Hittites answered,”…thou art a prince among us: in the choice of our sepulchres bury thy dead; none of us shall withhold from thee.” (Genesis ref.).
If Abraham was revered as a prince by the Hittites, he, too, was a highly regarded member of the hereditary ruling and warrior caste. The Bible never did say that Abraham wasn’t a Hittite. It just said, “I am a stranger and a sojourner with you.” (Genesis 23:4.) The Jerusalem Hittites recognized Abraham as being even above them in the caste system.
Hittites were not a unique ethnicity. The same could be said of the Amorites or Amarru, or Marruta. These were an Indian caste name for common people. The word “Amorite” (Marut) was the first caste name of the Indian Vaishyas: craftsmen, farmers, cattlemen, traders, etc.
- D. Pande writes in Ancient Geography of Ayodhya:
“Maruts represented the Visah. The Maruts are described as forming troops or masses. Rudra, the father of the Maruts, is the lord of cattle.”(p. 177.)
Malita J. Shendge states:
“…the Maruts are the people.” (The Civilized Demons; p. 314.)
The Khatti (Hittites) and Maruts (Amorites) functioning as the fathers (protectors) and mothers (helpmates or assistants) of Jerusalem. These served the same role in their ancestral lands in the Indus Valley, before the Nimrod catastrophe.
In India, the Hittites were also known as Cedis or Chedis (pronounced Hatti or Khatti). Indian historians classify them as one of the oldest castes.
“The Cedis formed one of the most ancient tribes among the Ksatriyas (the aristocratic class made up of Hittites and Kassites) in early Vedic times. As early as the period of the Rgveda the Cedi kings had acquired great reknown… they are one of the leading powers in northern India in the great epic.” (Yadavas Through the Ages, p. 90.)
If our Abraham, and the ancient Hindu person ‘Brahm, and Ram are the same person, then when Abraham went to Jerusalem he was actually moving into an area already colonized and controlled by members of his own caste!
Melchizedek was a king of Jerusalem of whom very little is mentioned in the Bible. Here is an interesting parallel from ancient Indian history.
Melik-zadak-sina was a great Indian prince, magician, and spiritual giant – the son of a Kassite king. In Kashmiri and Sanskrit, Sadak = “a person with magical, supernatural powers.” Why does the Kassite (of royal caste) Melik-Sadak-sina, a mythical Indian personage, suddenly appear in Jerusalem as someone to whom Abraham pays homage?
If Abram was a priest in the priestly caste, then he would only pay homage to someone of the same caste who was princely and priestly. The Hebrew language gives us a clue as to who this particular Melchizedek was that Abraham encountered.
The word Melech in Hebrew is a title, not a name and it means, King. The word Zedek means, Righteousness. So, whomever this Jerusalem Melchezadek was, he was certainly more important than the great Hindu prince!
Why am I brining this up? Is it to confuse? Not at all!
It is to clarify this point:
One of the missing pieces in Biblical scholarship is the Easern worldview! The story of Abraham/Abram cannot be fully understood without understanding elements from his own culture and that culture was Indian/Nimrodian. In the caste system/culture of Nimrod this Melik-zadak-sina was a significan individual. An ancient near-East individual would have understood the story of his own day in a very different manner than we would today. He probablywould have known the story and significance of meeting such a princely Magi. Abraham certainly did. He bowed down to this Magi, and even offered 10% of his recently won spoils from a battle to this King-Priest—as was fitting for someone of this King-Priest stature in his Eastern culture!
Abram the Idol Maker
According to Akshoy Kumar Mazumdar in The Hindu History, Brahm was the spiritual leader of the Aryan Caste. As an Aryan Abraham naturally believed in idols as his father would have (Genesis ref.). The bible says that he even manufactured them. Upon seeing how increasing idol worship and religious guesswork were contributing to the further downfall of his people, ‘Braham backed away from Aryanism and reembraced the teachings of his recently deceased ancestor, Noah.
According to Dr. Mazumdar, shocked at the barbarism and blind selfishness of the people, the wise men and educated people among the proto-Hebrews led by ‘Braham isolated themselves from the masses.
“The moral fall was rapid. The seers and sages lived apart from the masses. They seldom married and were mostly given to religious contemplation. The masses, without proper light and leader, soon became vicious in the extreme. Rape, adultery, theft, etc., became quite common. Human nature ran wild. Brahma decided to reform and regenerate the people. He made the chief sages and seers to marry and mix with the people. Most refused to marry, but 30 agreed.”
Brahm married his half sister Sarai-svati. These sages became known as prajapatis (progenitors) in the ancient Sanscrit stories.
“Northern Afghanistan was called Uttara Kuru and was a great center of learning. An Indian woman went there to study and received the title of Vak, i.e. Sarai-svati (Lady Sarah). It is believed that Brahm, her teacher (and half brother), was so impressed by her beauty, education, and powerful intellect, that he married her.” (The Hindu History; p. 48, in passim.)
This story of ‘Brahma and Sarai have similar references all over the world. From the holy community in Southern Afghanistan, similar communities worshipping a single God spread all over the world: the whole of India, Nepal, Thailand, China, Egypt, Syria, Italy, the Philippines, Turkey, Persia, Greece, Laos, Iraq, and even the Americas. The linguistic evidence of Brahma’s presence in various parts of the world is more than evident, simply looking at the word meaning Holy in various ancient languages:
- Persian:Braghman (Holy);
- Latin: Bragmani (Holy);
- Russian: Rachmany (Holy);
- Ukranian: Rachmanya (Priest; Holy);
- Hebrew: Ram (Supreme Leader);
- Norwegian: From (Godly).
Names that undeniably derive from ‘Bhrama literally pepper Native-American languages, especially the languages of those tribes extending from our American Southwest, to Mexico, and all the way to South America.
There was no part of the ancient world, including China, that wasn’t influenced by ‘Bhrama’s religious views. By Mohammed’s time, Abraham’s theology had become the foundation stone of nearly all religious sects. Like his ancestor Noah, the name Abraham appears in on nearly every continent and culture in some form.
Mohammed and Islam
All Mohammed did was to purge his people of idol worship. Before Mohammed’s time, the Hinduism of Arabs known as Tsaba. Tsaba is a Sanskrit word that means Assembly of the Gods.
Tsaba was also known by the name Isha-ayalam (Shiva’s Temple). The term Moslem or Moshe-ayalam also means Shiva’s Temple. In other words Moslem is really just another name for the religious sect of Tsaba. The word has now shrunk from Moslem to Islam. Mohammed himself, was a member of the Quaryaish family. Historically this family was Tsaba. The Tsaba did not regard Abraham as an actual god. The considered him a divinely ordained teacher called and him Avat’her Brahmo (Judge of the Underworld).
“…the Temple of Mecca was founded by a colony of Brahmins from India. It was a sacred place before the time of Mohamed, and they were permitted to make pilgrimages to it for several centuries after his time. Its great celebrity as a sacred place long before the time of the prophet cannot be doubted.” (Anacalypsis, Vol. I, p. 421.)
“…the city of Mecca is said by the Brahmins, on the authority of their old books, to have been built by a colony from India; and its inhabitants from the earliest era have had a tradition that it was built by Ishmael, the son of Agar. This town, in the Indus language, would be called Ishmaelistan.” (Ibid, p. 424.)
“The Arabian historians contend that Brahma and Abraham, their ancestor, are the same person. The Persians generally called Abraham Ibrahim Zeradust. Cyrus considered the religion of the Jews the same as his own. The Hindoos must have come from Abraham, or the Israelites from Brahma…” (Anacalypsis; Vol. I, p. 396.)
The Kashmiri-Sanskrit equivalent of Hebron (Khev’ron in Hebrew) screams out the Indian origins of Jerusalem’s earliest inhabitants: Khab’ru (grave; tomb). (See Grierson’s Dictionary.; p. 382.)
Even in Hebrew, the root word, Kever, means “Tomb.”
Indian linguist and orientalist Maliti J. Shendge makes some startling points concerning the ancient Indu Valley cultures and the Middle East in her book, The Languages of Harappans.
“…it may be said that the region from Tigris-Euphrates to the Indus and its east was inhabited by the Akkadian speaking Semites who later called themselves as Asshuraiu. Their Indian name as known from Rgveda is ‘Asura’ which is not far removed. That this region should be inhabited by different clans of the same ethos is not very surprising. It would however be wrong to think that it was a racially homogenous group. As our linguistic evidence shows it was a mixed population of the Akkadians and Sumerians. The other ethnic groups also may have been present, whose traces may be looked for in future work. This mixed composition of the population is not inconsistent with the present state of knowledge, as the presence of these ethnic elements in the Indus valley only confirms and extends an identical demographic pattern, which was in existence probably from the earliest times of prehistory and civilization.
If these Akkadians were the same as the West Asian clan, there should have been an equal preponderance of this primaeval couple in the Vedic mythology. However, beyond one cryptic reference, there is no reference to them.
This was baffling. It seemed unlikely that this clan was without the primaeval parents, though their god was Asura. The predominance of Brahman in RV as the primaeval father is there which is also inadequate as he is male principle alone. A close look at Brahman revealed its ancestry to be made of two words Abu + Rahmu which is the primaeval pair in the Semitic mythology. The Akkadian counterpart of Rahmu is Lahmu which later became goddess Laksmi, born in the sea and courted by both gods and demons. Lahmu is a dragon in Akkadian but in Ugaratic Rahmu is the lass of Abu. Brahma (abu + rahmu = abrahma = brahma) all the changes postulated here being covered in the above correspondences, or lass of Abu, the supreme Semitic godhood, has undergone many transformations and has many counterparts in the Indian pantheon, amongst whom is Laksmi one of the important ones being worshipped as the goddess of all material creation. Thus the Asura clan of the Indus valley worshipped Abu-Rahmu as the primaeval couple.” (pp.269 – 270.)
At some point after the death of the real Abraham the people of the region we know as India began worshipping him as a god, rather than following his teachings to worship the one true God. Ms. Shendge’s research really strengthens my conviction that the remains of Abraham and Sarai in Hebron may actually be those of the real Brahm and Sarai-svati of Indian mythology. Our Abraham was evidently prominent Hindu priest, perhaps even the founder of the Abu-Rahmu (Adam and Eve) cults, who brought his monotheistic religion to West Asia and in fact to the entire world.
Though he and Sarai were deified in various forms back in their native India and other parts of the world, they remained as humans in Judaism.
This is a sampling of how the ancient Indians designated themselves along with place names and references to help a Western reader make sense of what I’m proposing:
The leaders were called Khassis (Kassites), Kushi (Kushites)
Cossacks (Military caste in the Southen Russian region), Caesars (Ruling caste in the Southern Region), Hattiya (Hittites), Cuthites (a dialectical form of Hittite), Hurrite (another dialectical form of Hittite), Cathay (also the name of ancient Chinese leaders), Kasheetl (Kashikeh as the name is pronounced among the Aztecs), Kashikhel (Kisheh by the Mayans), and Keshuah (Kush by the Incas).
The Assyrians (in English), Asirios (in Spanish), Asuras or Ashuras (India), Ashuriya, Asuriya (Sumer and Babylonia), Asir (Arabia), Ahura (Persia), SurÃ in Central Mexico, etc., were people who worshipped Surya (the Sun). Naturally, in areas where this religion prevailed, they were known as “Assyrians,” no matter what the real names of their respective kingdoms were.
The Indo-European problem
Another problem that western scholars have in identifying the Indo-Europeans as Indians is that India was not then and never was a nation.
Furthermore, the name for the area has never been India, but rather, Bharata. However, Bharata is not a nation either. Bharata is a collection of nations, just as Europe today is a collection of nations. What holds India together today is the threat of Moslem expansion. When the Moslem expansionism disappears, the union holding together Bharata will once more splinter as it has many times in the past.
 Today the word Kalami denotes a language of tribes in Northern Pakistan.
