The true Troy sunk away under
the seas, and should not be expected to be found that easily, on dry ground.
The same is true of the "Sicily" from where
Aeneas departed a second time. This is indeed the Thrinacia of the Outer
Ocean visited by Odysseus, by the Argonauts and other heroes of the ancients.
Its name means "Trident", an allusion of the Triple Mountain of Lanka (Mt.
Trikuta), and not indeed to the roughly triangular shape of Sicily. It would have
been stupid of Virgil to claim that Aeneas departed from Sicily and crossed
the entire ocean in order to get to Rome, only a few kilometers away.
The legend of this primordial Thrinacia was
transferred by the Greeks and the Romans to Sicily, with disastrous results
such as the one just mentioned. It was there that the famous duel
of Zeus and Typhon was held to have taken place. This same duel is told,
Vedas, as the formidable combat of Indra and Vritra, which
the Greeks adapted into that of Zeus and Typhon. Again, the Hindu myth
was turned into the combat of Hercules and the giant Caccus, and into the
war of the Gods agaisnt the Giants. As in India, these formidable combats
are an allegory of the war of Atlantis.
More exactly yet, the combats mentioned above,
and others such, allegorize the foundering of Atlantis, and the war of
the elements in fury. Atlantis was destroyed by Fire (Volcanic) and Water
(Oceanic), and the event is universally commemorated as the Cosmogonic
Hierogamy of Fire and Water. In India, Vritra represents the Fiery element,
whereas Indra represents the Watery one. In Greece, Poseidon (or Typhon,
his alias) represented the Watery element, whereas Zeus and his thunder
represented Celestial Fire. This combat led to the destruction of the world
and the start of a new era. Hence, the event is universally commemorated
at the start of the New Year, a ritual equivalent of the New Era.
The Greeks too, like so many ancients nations,
claimed to have originally come from an overseas Paradise that can be no
other than Atlantis itself. Plato tells of a primeval, ante-Diluvian "Athens"
that also sunk in the Atlantean cataclysm. This cataclysm forced the Atlanteans
to emigrate, probably into India and Egypt at first and, later, into the
Mediterranean region. These traditions of
the Greeks are supported by the Hindu ones on the
"Aryans") who once lived in the island of Yava (Java) and with whom the
Dravidian races were in constant war.
Yavanas were also called
Yonas, a name that closely evokes the one of the Ionians or Greeks. It may
well be the case that these
Yonas were the same as the
who civilized the Babylonians, or as the peoples of Aeneas (*Oaeneas?) and other Civilizing Heroes of the ancient nations. Ultimately, this word derives from the Sanskrit
Yoni and the Dravida
Ya-vanna, a term designating the Great Mother and, more exactly, the Cosmic Womb. The Great Mother (Dana, Danu) is the eponymous goddess of the Danaans (= Danavas = Greeks ) and of the Tuatha D Danaan. The Great Virgin Mother is an allegory of Lemurian Atlantis, and Earth's Vagina allegorizes the giant chasm (the Vadava-mukha or "Submarine Mare") that engulfed Lemurian Atlantis, just as the Great Father (Shiva) and his giant phallus are allegorized by Mt. Atlas.
Plato speaks of Gadeiros, the twin brother
of Atlas. Gadeiros ruled over one of the ten Atlantean realms and apparently
revolted against his elder brother in the famous war of Atlantis. Gadeiros
is no other than Hercules, and both these names mean "cow-herder". The
allusion is to the tenth labor of Hercules, where the Hero leads the cattle
of Geryon from the sunken island of Erytheia. Erytheia means "the Land
of Sunrise". From there the Greeks originally came, led by Hercules, into
their new Promised Land, that of Greece. The "cattle" driven by Hercules
is indeed the Greek people. And the Greek hero is no other than one of
the Hindu twins, Nakula and Sahadeva. These twin gods were also the true archetypes
of "twins" such as Hercules and Atlas, Castor and Pollux, the Ashvins,
and many others, everywhere.
