Do you know where was Asur-Lok of Pauranic World? Who were they and where did they live? Let’s find…
According to the ancient history available in India, Maharishi Kashyap had three main wives Diti, Aditi and Danu who were the daughters of Daksha Prajapati. From Maharishi Kashyap’s wife Diti, there were Daitya (sons of Diti) or Asur castes, Dev (or Sur) castes from Aditi and Danav (sons of Danu) castes from Danu. Hence, Daitya, Danava and Deva were brothers among themselves.
There was a struggle for power and fighting for throne between Danav-Daitya and Devas. Devas, fed up with constant discord with Asur and Danav, had established their own people in a region where it was impossible for Manav (human) to reach, but Asur and Danav reached Devlok (or Surlok i.e. land of devas) due to being powerful and elusive (to have magical power). Despite the ideological differences and contrary nature, there was not much difference between the culture of the Suras (Devas) and the Asuras. There were also marriage relations among danavas, asuras and devas. Later, when manvas (humans) started on the path of development and became excellent in science and knowledge, then Asur and Danav who despised humans, started making marital relations with humans too.
The spread of early Asur and Danav is mainly visible in Arbasthan (Arab), European and African countries. There is a lot of evidence available that the area of Asur and Danav was down to the Arabian peninsula of the Kashyapiya (Caspian) Sea. Some historians believe that the early capital of Diti’s son Daityaking Hiranyakashyap was in the Brahmanabad of Sindh, he went to Kashyapiya region after victory and being the joint emperor of the Asur and Danav. The Kashyapiya region seem to be native land for Danu’s son Danavas.
After the rise of humans and the combination of cultures, the Asur and Danav castes also settled in the interior of Indian subcontinent. However, some leftist historians have been desperately trying to prove the Hadappa Sandhav civilization as more ancient than Vedic era and of asura civilization, which ends on the invasion theory of the Aryans which has now proved to be a lie, concoction and imperialist conspiracy. At the same time, there are some storytellers, Dharmacharyas who find the whole universe in India itself.
1. Asura and Danava in Europe
There is a “Tara Hill” in County Meath of Ireland. It is in this area that the most mysterious Shiva Linga in the world was built by making a circle of stone-wide bricks. When it was built, people are not aware of it. The people there know it as a mysterious stone. It is called Leah Fell (stone of fortune). People worship it.
According to the book “The Minors of the Four Masters”, an ancient document of French monks from 1632 to 1636 AD, “Tuatha de Denan” was the leader of a group possessing certain magical powers. “Tuatha de denan” means the children of Goddess Danu. He ruled Ireland from 1897 B.C. to 1700 B.C. This was such an important stone that until the year 500 CE, the coronation of all Irish kings was done here. (This practice ceased after Christian invaders conquered Ireland in 500 CE)
Goddess Danu was a river goddess in European tradition. The rivers Danube, Don, Dnieper and Dniester are named after Danu or Danav. In the Vedic tradition, there is a mention of Danu Devi, who was the daughter of Daksha and the wife of Kashyap Muni who was the goddess of rivers. For those who follow the Vedic tradition, the name Leah Fail is very similar to Shivalinga. (Leah Fail may be European apostrophe of Shiva linga)
In recent years, many attempts were made to damage this Shivling of Ireland. In June 2012, a person attacked the stone 11 times. Then, in May 2014, someone tried to spoil it by putting red and green color on the surface.
The Germans call their country Deutschland (Diets Land), which is a transformation of the sanskrit word Daitya Place. The German term Deutschland, originally diutisciu land (“the German lands”) is derived from deutsch, descended from Old High German diutisc “of the people” (from diot or diota “people”). Source- Wikipedia- “Germany”.
Duetch, Diot, Diota, etc. are the aberrations of the word Daitya i.e. son of Diti. (Vedic World History and http://oldisrj.lbp.world/UploadedData/4692.pdf )
Ancient humans were present in Germany at least 600,000 years ago. Similarly dated evidence of modern humans has been found in the Swabian Jura, including 42,000-year-old flutes which are the oldest musical instruments ever found and the 40,000-year-old Lion Man. (Wikipedia “Germany”)
The presence of humans in Germany 600000 years ago directs the descendants of the earliest humans. Both the 42,000 year old flute, which had indisputably the origin in the region of India and the 600,000 year old Narasimha lord idol both represent the Vedic Aryan culture in Germany. An ancient Greek historian named Tacitus writes that the Germans do the first defecation and oral cleansing as soon as they wake up, which is certainly the practice of the oriental people. They wear long, loose robes and tie long hairs over their head, which is the practice of Brahmins (of India). (Page 43 Vol. 1, Annals and antiquities of Rajsthan, by James Tod).
Tacitus also writes that “In the 8th century, before the attack of Christians led by Augustus, the Germans settled mainly on the banks of the Rhine and Danube rivers.” The descendants of Danu were inhabited on the banks of the Danube River.
The swastika that is in vogue in Germany turns to the left. Although thousands of years later, due to the mixing of humans and Asuras in the Indian subcontinent, Swastik on the left side is also found in India, but the swastika on the left side used mainly Asuras and Demons because they were leftist i.e. anti-Devas and their followers. In Mecca of Arbasthan also (Muslims) people have been doing circumambulation for thousands of years from right to left as Arbasthan was a region under influence of asuras.
Edward Pokok writes on page 53 of his book India in Greece that European Kshatriyas, Kshatriyas of Scandinavia and Indian Kshatriyas are all of the same class. P.N. Oak writes that Scandinavia is actually Sanskrit word “Skand naviya” which was the base area or cantonment of the son of Shiva “Skanda’s naval army” when it fought against the demon (Daitya and Danavas). Scandinavia was set up by a danav named Shanda. Residents of the Netherlands are also called Deutch (i.e. daitya). Another word for the people of Holland is Demonym which seems to be made up of Demon (Danav).
If you put A before Netherland, then the Sanskrit word “Antarsthan” forms which means “interior land”. Netherland is below sea level, so special measures have been taken to prevent the sea from coming to the terrestrial part there. It is said in the Puranas that Narada Muni went to the Daityalok (Asur-lok) which was the Netherworld. Narada Muni has described this Asur Land as more beautiful than heaven i.e. Surlok.
Danu and Mark are mentioned in the Puranas. Danu was the mother of the Danavas and Mark was the priest of Hiranyakashyap and the teacher of Prahlada, who used to fight with Skanda, the son of Shiva. The memory of the same Danu and Mark is in the name of the country of Denmark. Some scholars believe that the Danav Mark had settled Denmark. Shukracharya’s son Shanda and Mark were killed in the Kolahal war. (Vedic World History, Part-2 and page 5 http://oldisrj.lbp.world/UploadedData/4692.pdf )
The etymology of the name “Denmark”, the relationship between “Danes” and “Denmark”, and the emergence of Denmark as a unified kingdom are topics of continuous scholarly debate. This is centered primarily on the prefix “Dan” and whether it refers to the Dani or a historical person Dan and the exact meaning of the -“mark” ending. (Wikipedia-“ Denmark”)
It is clear from the above that no European people and people of Denmark themselves are aware of the origin of the word Denmark. They find their origin with the word Danes and then get caught in Mark. According to Wikipedia “The Danes were a North Germanic tribe inhabiting southern Scandinavia, including the area now comprising Denmark.” A Greek writer has written that Dane was demon, that is, descendant of Danavas.
In The Theogony of the Hindus, Count Bionstiarna writes that “Hindus had settled in Scandinavia before the Mahabharata war. The mythology of the people of Scandinavia is the same as that of the Hindus.”
Hindu means people of Aryan culture who can also be Asur and Danav because there was ideological differences between them and human culture. Like the Veda Jenda (Avesta) of Iran, Scandinavia also has the sacred text “Edda” which is a transformation of the word Veda and only the deformed remains of the Veda are left in it. The reason for this is that the Christian attack on Scandinavia took place much later, which lasted for about 300 years. Denmark fought hard for 150 years, Norway and Iceland for nearly 200 years and Sweden 300 years against the Christian invaders.
In the Sanskrit and its kindred Literatures-Studies in Comparative Mythology book, Laura writes that “the Norse people of Scandinavia were Christianized hundreds of years later. Therefore, their cosmopolitan beliefs and mythological stories are basically safe. Two Eddas are his sacred texts. One is in verse and the other in prose. They are written in the same ancient norse (Indo-European) language that was spoken in the four branches of Scandinavia. The verse Edda is more ancient, it has 37 mandals. Some of them are spiritual which describes the formation of the world, in other chapters, there is a history of the mutual behavior of the gods (devas) and humans and the people of the state. “
Historian P.N. Oak writes, “The name Assur is often written on burial rocks in Scandinavia. The Europe was ruled by the clans of demon and daitya. In Sweden there was a huge golden temple named Upasala. By 1040 AD, Trimurti Thor, Odin and Frey (Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh) were worshiped in it, Ygya was done, offerings were made. The festival was celebrated here every nine years. After that, Christian invaders destroyed the temple and hoisted the Christian flag there. “
It is clear from the above example that over time the battle of Asuras, Danvas and Devas was over. And all of them were following the Vedic Aryan culture which was the best. However, the local history of his past was also preserved. This combination of cultures also appears in the later India. However, here, it may also be that some people from India have settled in Scandinavia who have mingled with the descendants of Danav (i.e. Dan/Dane) and Daitya (i.e. Duetch, Diot, Diota).
2. Asur and Danav in Arab and Africa
To the southeast of the Caspian Sea, near the modern city of Estradabad was the ancient city of Hirkenia. Its ancient name was Hiranyapur. The name is believed to be derived from the name of Kashyapa Rishi and Hiranyakashyap, son of Diti. Raja Bali’s palace ‘Sutal’ was probably in Trans Caspian district. (page-5, http://oldisrj.lbp.world/UploadedData/4692.pdf)
Kashyap Rishi’s ashram was somewhere near Kashyapiya Sagar (Caspian Sea). There is Assyria (Asura Pradesh) around the Kashyapiya Sea. There is also a description of a Mitanni dynasty in the Mahabharata period, which later migrated to Arabia. The Mitanni kings ruled almost 500 years in Arabia. The kings of the Mittni dynasty were the Ahur (Asura) dynasty. Their names are:
Asura Nirahi II
Asura Nasirpal I
Asura Banipal etc. (Source: Wikipedia)
Asura Benipal, a king of Assyria, had captured the territory up to Iraq. The statue of Asura Benipal is still kept in a museum in Iraq. Asuras ruled around Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt. Danu’s son Danav also lived nearby. Hayagreeva was the most powerful of them. Hayagreeva means a horse-like face or neck. The names of the other four sons of Danu also begin with the word horse – Ashwagiri, Ashwapati, Ashwasanku and Ashwasiras. Sanskrit word “arb” also means horse. Therefore, it is possible that the name Arbasthan of Arab region was named after these demons. However, some scholars also connect the history of naming of Arbasthan with the stories of Shukracharya, the guru of Asur and Danav.
In the year 200 BC, historian Berosus wrote that a group of demons (Asuras) reached the Persian Gulf by sea from the east. Its leader was Ones (Ushanas i.e. Shukracharya). The Sumerians’ gratitude to these people, who brought with them advanced technology, can be seen in the acknowledgment that these upcoming people spread metallurgy, agriculture and writing etc. and started everything that is necessary for advanced life. (The Sumerians, Oxford, Writer-Wooley, C Leonard, Page-189)
Narsinh (Lion-Man) was incarnated in Babylonia and it is mentioned in the part of the name of Genesis i.e. birth or beginning XI-7 of the Bible. This is what Thomas Morris believes. He has written in his book that there is no doubt that when mankind dispersed, then those who went to Egypt took with them the memories of that terrible (Narasimha incarnation) history. He had the same name (Narasimha) which is in Indian tradition. (The History of Hindustan, its arts and its sciences as connected with the history of the other great empires. Writer-Thomas Maurice, Republished by Navrang, New delhi, 1974)
Narsinh incarnation took place in the Royal Palace asur king for the slaughter of Asura Hiranyakashyap. Babylonia was the city of Mesopotamia in Arab itself, which is now called Iraq. Therefore, if the above things are true, then the state of the Asuras is proved even more emphatically in the Arab region.
It is described in the Puranas that God Vamana had asked for three feet of land from King Bali and only in two steps He measured all the three worlds (loks) – Dev-Lok, Manav (human)-Lok and Asura-Lok. Therefore, he placed the third step on the head of King Bali and sent him from the Asura Lok to Patal Lok. Many scholars believe that Patal Lok was the modern Abyssinia (Ethiopia) of Shankha dweep (Africa).
Residents of Abyssinia also consider themselves to have settled by coming from the banks of the Indus River. Abssin is the transformation of “AAP-Sindhu”. This is why, this country of Africa is named Abyssinia. A Greek historian named Eusebius has written in the book “India as seen and known by Foreigners” that the people living on the banks of the Indus River settled in Ethiopia (Abyssinia) near Egypt.
It seems that the people of Sindh region who came with Hiranyakashyap or Shukracharya settled in Kashyapiya area and those settlers of this region at the time of King Bali, grandson of Hiranyakashyap, must have settled in Abyssinia according to the terms of God Vamana.
Another aspects of this story, in my opinion, is that the Danvas and Asuras migrated to Scandinavia as per condition laid by God Vamana which had been settled by Danav Shund and Mark as stated above. The Daitya Lok (or Asur-Lok) visited by Narad Muni was netherworlds which means Patal Lok and is still a country exist there with the name and nature of netherworlds, that is, Netherland. Only after this incident the clans of Danavas and Daityas started spreading in Europe towards Netherworlds of Scandinavia. This gives more apparent reason to believe that the king Bali with their kith and kins migrated to Scandinavia which was Patal Lok as per Puran, however, some of them must have migrated to Abyssinia, as well.
The descendants of these Asur and Danav who migrated to Abyssinia were Ravana’s maternal grandfather and maternal uncle Mali and Sumali, after whom Mali and Somalia are countries in Africa. Initially they lived in Sri Lanka, but due to Kuber taking control of Sri Lanka, they fled to Africa. This was the time when humans started competing with demons and asuras on the strength of their hard work and scientific research. By the way, the demons and the asuras were also Arya (superior) blood, but had fallen into their misdeeds. So, to get a son born from Arya blood again, Mali and Sumali sent their daughter and sister Kaikasi to Vrishrava, the son of Maharishi Pulastya, to have a son from him.
The area of work of Maharishi Pulastya was in present-day Palestine. His ashram (residence) was there and Vrishrava lived there. Kaikasi had her three sons Ravana, Kumbhakaran and Vibhishan and daughter Surpanakha. After the death of Ravana, all the upper part of Shankhadweep (Africa) came under Shri Ram’s son Kush. In Ethiopia’s textbooks, until a few hundred years ago, the people of Ethiopia was taught as Kushites, that is, the people of Kush, and Kush’s father was called Ham (Rama’s apostrophe).
Historian P.N. Oak writes, “When the Christian Habshi emperor, the late Hale Salasi, was gifted a unique sacred object by a lord of India Krishnananda, Hale Salasi amazed Krishnananda by saying “the information about Ram to we Africans is not a new thing. We are all Kushites i.e. people of Kush” After that meeting, Swami Krishnananda bought some books of Shaleya history from the market and read them with great enthusiasm. It clearly stated that the Africans are Kushaiites.”
Rev. Faber in his book Origin of the Pagan idols in chapter 5, at page 370 writes that the religion of the Celts people of the Gaul region (France, Spain, Portugal and Switzerland) and Britain was also the religion of the Hindus or of the Egyptians. Canaanites, Phrygians, Greeks and Romans also had the same religion. The Phoenicians, the kings of Anakim, Philistine, Palli and the Egyptians were called Kushites, being descendants of the Kush. They are also called Ethiopians by the Septuagent translators. In the Greek language, Ethiopians mean black but not black.
I think people of Vedic Aryan culture like Etruscan of Italy, Druids or Celts of Europe, Assyrian, Mesopotamian, Pagan of Saudi Arabia, Kushaites of Africa, etc., the descendants of Danavas or Asuras, may be indigenous there; however, some people of India might have gone there and settled in different periods. So, I do not fully refute the opinion that they were descendants of Indian people settled in those areas.
Mahadev the God of Asuras and Danvas
Mahadev was the most loved deity of Asur and Danav and Shivalinga was established in many places in Europe and Arab countries. Thousands of evidences have been scattered about the worship of Shiva around the world. Remains of the practice of worshiping Shiva are also found in the ancient cities of Palmyra, Neemrud, etc. which were recently destroyed by the Islamic State. Apart from this, there are Shivling in these places too:
– The city of Turkistan has a twelve hundred feet high Shivling.
– There is a 300 feet high Shivling in the city of Hadropolis.
– There is a temple of Parvati in Corinth, Greece.
Shiv Linga is the famous monument of Egypt and the memorial of Shankar. The shrine of Ireland as mentioned above is also a Shivling.
– International Shiva shrine in Alexandria. According to European historians, Alexander had visited this Shiva shrine before moving towards India. -The worship of Makkeshwar Mahadev in Makkah is famous.
