Proof of Vedic Culture's Global Existence (英语) 平装 – 2009年7月7日
This book provides evidence which makes it clear that most religious history is not what we think it is. It lets you see the true heritage that has been suppressed for centuries. It shows that there was once a greatly advanced and ancient culture that was a global society. This was the Vedic civilization. Even today we can see its influence in any part of the world, which makes it obvious that before the world became full of distinct and separate cultures, religions, and countries, it was once united in a common brotherhood of Vedic culture, with common standards, ideals, language, and representations of God. No matter what we may be in regard to our present religion, society, or country, we are all descendants of that ancient, global civilization. The Vedic tradition of India is the parent of humanity and the original ancestor of all religions.
More careful editing could have eliminated redundant information and some misleading assumptions. Thus, it is incorrect to equate the antiquity of the Indus-Sarasvati civilization with that in Mesopotamia, although white race supremacists have done so arbitrarily to embellish their own ancestry. Whereas archeological evidence at Mehragarh has firmly established the former to go back to at least 8000 BC, there is no evidence that the latter took shape before 6000 BC. Also, the author opines that the message of Jesus was directed to poor Hindus whereas in reality the period between Ashoka and Gupta Empires was the golden age of Bharata with free food, lodging and health care for all. Indeed, there is no evidence for colonies of poor Hindus in the area where Jesus practiced his ministry although colonies of affluent Hindu traders were to be found from Philippines to Arabia.
It would seem that this THEORY - which is all it is - is a MYTH propagated by Western Scholars who wished, for politically motivated reasons, to devalue the achievements of Ancient India. As such it becomes not unlike certain other current myths which have been planted in the common mind and that work to prevent a true understanding of the past.
Those who may be interested in pursuing this matter should try to find a copy of David Frawley's 'Gods, Sages and Kings : Vedic Secrets of Ancient Civilization.' His article, 'The Myth of the Aryan Invasion of India' which appeared in "The India Times", can be found through Google and is available at: [...]
On another note, although I'm not a linguist it's my understanding that language tends to evolve from an older and earlier complexity of grammar towards a later simplicity, and if we look at Sanskrit, Ancient Greek, Latin and English what we find is that Sanskrit is more complex than Ancient Greek, Ancient Greek is more complex than Latin, and Latin is more complex than English. The movement from complexity to relative simplicity has been from East to West, and not West to East.
