leads to the global search of persons, origin, migration points and of course, the present day similarities. Oh, this considers the Gotra or the origin of a person, route, race and even Lord Krishna’s Gotram! Interestingly, many of the new-found names of present days are, actually listed in the Vedic Scripts. A few names are just gotten changed or spelt in different, but accent and phonetic sound of persons name and city/country names are similar to that one of Vedic days.
Hare Krishna dear Iyengar
I was thinking this essay will be nice for your website. The migrations of nations and ultimately the origins of human race are described. It was written by Pandit Sastri Gauranga Premananda das.
I hope you are well

Sri Sri Radha-Krishna’s gotraGauranga Premananda Das
Everyone wonders or will wonder at some time “What is the origin of different peoples and how did I get here?”
According to Darwinists, the ancestors of modern humans migrated out of Africa and colonized Asia and Europe. When North of Europe and Asia became ice free the Caucasus region was the route used. Immediately to the south of the Caucasus, the Euphrates and the Tigris have their sources. According to Jews, Moslems and Christians this is where the garden of Eden was located and is the homeland of Abraham. Mount Ararat in the South Caucasus was the mountain where Noah’s ark landed. This is the supposed homeland fatherland of the Indo-European Caucasians.
The Vedic scriptures give a similar account as far as the Caucasian ranges being a stage for the development of the human being. The Aitareya Upanisad says: “He (the atma) was thinking: “Shall I create the worlds?” and He created the worlds.” After being empowered by the mantra from the flute of Paramatma (the higher Self, Krishna) Brahma created the world. After each night of Brahma (that is 1000 maha-yuga’s or 1000 x 4,320,000 = 4.32 billion years) there is another cycle of creation. Brahma was empowered by the mantra OM at the beginning of creation, later it was the mantra – klim krishnaya govindaya gopijanavallabaya svaha.
Sri Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the cause of all causes, has His eternal part Sri Balarama (and also Srimati Radharani). Sri Balarama’s part is Sri Narayana (Srimati Radharani’s parts are the Laksmi’s, the goddesses of fortune). A part of Sri Narayana is Sri Maha-Sankarsana. All these personalities of God have their pastimes in the spiritual world. From Sri Maha-Sankarasana comes Maha-Visnu. This universe is the durga, the prison.
155 521 971 221 102 (about 155 million millions) years ago Maha-Visnu created the walls and the elements, the building blocks of the universe. 1,971,221,102 (about 2 billion) years ago Brahma and the other demigods created the planets and so on. Theu do this every 4.32 million years. One of Brahma’s sons was Marici. His son was Kasyapa Muni. 120 million years ago Kasyapa Muni became the father of the Indo-europeans. Some of these Indo-europeans migrated to the west and some east. Kasyapa Muni himself meditated near the Caspian Sea, which is named after him.
Vivasvan, the sungod was the son of Kasyapa Muni and his wife Aditi, Sri Ramacandra was born in Vivasvans surya-vamsa (= the generation of the progenitor Surya, the sun god). There are still small groups of worshippers of the sun god scattered around the world. Daitya’s ( = from Diti), or demons were the progeny of Kasyapa Muni and Diti. They spread themselves over Europe. The names ‘Titans’ and ‘Teutons’, ‘Dutch’ and ‘Deutschland’ were later given and derived from the word daitya. According to the Indian historian Purushottam Nagesh Oak.
Atri is another of Brahma’s sons. Atri’s son was Soma or Candra (the demigod who governs the moon). Candra’s son was Budha (not the one from the Buddhists), the king of the planet Mercury. one of Buddha’s sons was Pururava. Then the descent goes through Ayu, then Nahusa and then Yayati. Yayati had five sons: Yadu gave rise to the Yadu-dynasty, in which Krishna and Balarama appeared; Puru gave rise to the Puru-dynasty in which Bhisma, Dhrtarastra, Arjuna, Yudhisthira, Bhima, Duryodhana and Maharaja Pariksit were born. Puru received the land of Egypt. Puru’s son was Pravira. His son was Manasyu (yu = the uniter) also called Menes, who according to Western historians founded Egypt’s first dynasty. The name Paurava’s, Puru’s descendants later degenerated to Pharaoh’s. Yadu and the other sons of Yayati were subordinate to Puru. Eventually, the Yadu clans who had settled in Egypt left Egypt where they were persecuted. Out of this clan came the Jews.
Egypt is named after Ajapati, the son of the Aja clan. Aja was the grandfather of Lord Sri Ramacandra. Ramacandra is an expansion of Lord Sri Krishna. Sri Ramacandra appeared in the Surya-vamsa (family) of Vivasvan and Vivasvata Manu. Another name for Suryadeva is Ravi. Ra became the highest God, the father of this branch of the Surya-vamsa in Egypt. Their kings were Ramses, for them Rama-isa (Rama, the Lord) was God. Siva or (Maha)-isvara, the controller of the material world became Osiris.
For materialists Isa or isvara means Mahesa or Mahesvara, Siva. Lord Siva is Mahadeva, the highest amongst the controllers (deva’s) of the material world. He brings the souls to the material energy at the creation and on the command of Maha-Visnu. Siva is worshipped for material gain. Krishna the highest amongst the Lord’s of the spiritual world is sarvesa, the Lord of all; Paramesvara, the Supreme isvara; and Adi-isvara, the original isvara.
Some members of the Pandava-family also came to Egypt and Europe, after Dvaraka, Krishna’s residence, disappeared. The pyramids design was based on the smashana-cit-altars for the Vedic cremation rituals. The positions of the different parts of the building reflect the positions of the stars and the apex points to the devaloka’s, the heavenly planets. They also moved to iswara (=God) laya (=land) or Israel. From the Essenes (worshippers of isa, Siva) came Jesus (= of Isa) Christus (= of Krishna). Yajati’s three other rebellious sons received kingdoms outside of India. Yavana or Turvasu got Turkey, Persia etc. According to the Mahabharata (Adi Parva 85.34) Turvasu fought for Duryodhana on the battlefield of Kuruksetra. Anu got Greek and Italy.
Another migration of groups of people was started by Parasurama (also a descendant of Pururava) who displaced a branch of the Yadu’s, the demonic Haihaya kings and their followers, who settled mainly in Egypt. They became kings there. Some came to Europe and Asia.
About 4000BC Druhyu, the fifth son of Yayati, was banished to Europe. From Druhyu came the Druids, also connected with the Dravids, followers of the wise (=vid) man Drastha. Some barbarian tribes descended from him (more or less ksatriya’s). They settled themselves in France and England. Around the same time the Saxenas, a demonic ksatriya clan, were banished from India. These were the Saxons who settled in Western-Europe. After the battle of Kuruksetra in 3138 B.C., the worldwide system of varnasramadharma, or the Vedic social-political system slowly degraded.
The Vedic culture was more or less present everywhere, but mainly in India. Civilized nations search for nice places like the tropics to settle. Patalabhumi (the hellish or low land), the western hemisphere, mainly the north, were avoided.
Around 2000 B.C. different groups of Indian Indo-europeans went to the west. Also in the past groups went to the west to teach (like a group sharmans, brahmanical scholars, later called the Germans) and to reign (to establish the varnasramadharma-system). Or to emigrate because the river Sarasvati was dried up. Also some were banned because they had left the Vedic lifestyle. In 1103 B.C. the Trojans became the Sumeric Indo-europeans (because of the increasing desert because the river Saraswati dried up). In 800 B.C. the Kalatoya’s came from the area to the south of Kashmir. These were the Kelts. In 2000 B.C. they left India when the river Saraswati dried up. In 1000 B.C. they arrived at the Danube (the river which flows through the land of the Danavas or demons). The people of Alinas (Hellenes) was one of the first grpoups to emigrate from India (to Greece). According to the Mahabharata (Adiparva 174.38) Bhima and Sahadeva conquered the Pulinda’s (Greeks) because they had given up dharma.
In the book, Proof of Vedic Culture’s global existence, it is noted that Sanskrit is the mother of all languages and that the name Norway is derived from the Sanskrit naraka or hel. Soviet from sveta (white), Russia from rushis or rsi’s, wise men who meditated there. Siberia from the Sanskrit word for inhospitable, camping site. Scandinavia from skandha, the commander in chief of the demigods. They navigated in the name of Skandha and worshipped Skandha. The words viking and king are from the sanskrit singh (lion). The Vikings were great white-haired daityas. The name ‘Alps’ is derived from alpa (small in comparison with the Himalaya’s). At many places in Europe murti’s (statues) of Krishna, Shiva (linga), Mitra (sungod) and so on have been found.
According to the purana’s, the history-books of the Veda and the upapurana’s (smaller purana’s) around 11,000 B.C., there were floods, at the end of the glacial age. Thanks to their boat, Vaivasvata Manu (Noah) and his family, were virtually the only survivors. Following twelve great wars between the deva’s (godly people) and the asura’s (godless people), the land to the east of the Caucasus was given to the deva’s and that to the west of the Caucasus was given to the asura’s.
Some asura’s were (under Mayadanava, also a son of Kasyapa Muni – from Kasyapa’s wife Danu) banished to South America, Patalabhumi/loka, or the land under (and to the opposite of) Punya-bhumi. There, Mayadanava is the engineer and the king of the Danava’s. His fixed homelad is talatala-loka (1.088.000 km to the south of the Bhumandala) where the flying saucers are made.
The maya’s, the followers of Mayadanava, called their land Amaraka (amara = immortal, amrita=nectar). Asura’s often think that death is something that will not happen to them and they think their mother land paradise. Later Amerigo Vespucci could recover the name via his name America. The above shows that all present inhabitants of the world belong to Sri Sri Radha-Krishna’s gotra or family.
