The list is virtually endless, as any one can verify who takes the trouble to consult the treatises on ancient history.
The Horse Sacrifice (Atlantis in the Indies) 4
It is in India that, as usual, the motif of Reds (or Blacks) and Whites takes the clearest form. A possible exception is North America, where the genocidal war of the Palefaces and the Redskins took place in recent, historical times, In India, the Reds are the Kshatryias (“warriors”), the Dravidian races of dark (or ruddy) complexion. They adopt red for their heraldic color, a tint they associate with blood, as well as gold and copper, the ruddy metals.
In contrast, the Aryans or Brahmans have a whitish complexion and adopt white or silver as their heraldic color. Hindu gods are also divided into red (or black) deities and white ones. Shiva is red, Vishnu-Krishna is blue-black and Brahma is white. Kali is black, and so is Kala, her consort. Both names mean “black”. The list can be increased. But, in general, the devils (asuras) are black and the gods are white.
Sometimes, the races are divided into three shades: blacks, reds and whites. These correspond to the Trimurti, with Brahma white; Shiva red, and Vishnu (Krishna) black (or blue). In other terms, the three gods are Shiva, Shava and Kali. Shiva is red or pale, and almost cadaveric, as the trio escapes their destroyed Paradise in a sort of Ark. Shava (“corpse”) is dead and fully bloodless and white. Kali is black as she usually is.
The Hindu trio, Shiva, Shava and Shakti, is often depicted riding their floating island, the Island of the Jewels (Manidvipa). They are shown fleeing their destroyed world as sole survivors, adrift on their Floating Island, lost in an immense, utterly void ocean. As is clear, the myth of Manidvipa is an allegory of the destruction of Atlantis by the Flood, and of the salvation of its three races in a sort of Ark. The three Hindu personages correspond to the three “sons” of Noah, who similarly allegorize the three races of Mankind.
The battle of Reds and Whites (or Kshatryas and Brahmans) for supremacy in India is a disgrace that still goes on, though in attenuated form. But it is a well-attested, recurrent calamity. In 1,500 BC the white Aryans invaded dark (or red) India, wiping out the magnificent Indus Valley Civilization of the ruddy Dravidians, one of the earliest in the whole world. Accounts of the wars between Brahmans (Whites) and Kshatryas (Reds) literally fills hundreds of sacred Hindu treatises. They are written in mythical parlance, but are indeed actual history, detailed accounts of historical facts told in initiatic language.
The Ramayana and the Mahabharata are merely two of an endless series of Hindu sagas and holy books on this issue, which is far more than fable or even spiritual metaphor. Very often, the contendants are deified into devas and asuras or similar allegories of the Sons of Darkness and the Sons of Light. These are the clear archetypes of our angels and devils, who also fight likewise as instanced by the recurrent battle of Michael and Lucifer, as well as by that of the Sons of Light against the Sons of Darkness.
In Iranian mythology the same combat takes place between the hosts of Ahura Mazda (the Solar) and those of his twin, Ahriman (the Lunar). The Iranians, like the other nations, copied their myths from those of the Hindus. Even the names match (daevas and ahuras = devas and asuras, etc.), except that they are often inverted.
In fact, our Christian myths too were copied not indeed from the Iranian ones, as many authorities believe, but directly from the Hindu archetypes. One such is Kalidasa s Kumarasambhava (“The Birth of the War-God”), a rather literal precursor of the Book of Revelation, Another instance consisits of the many evangels on the life of Krishna, a remarkable prototype of Jesus Christ. Elsewhere, we make a detailed comparison of theseand other Hindu texts with their Judeo-Cristian counterparts, which are far from original in their doctrines.
The conclusion is simple, but inescapable. The legend of the War of Atlantis derives, as do those of Troy and Thebes, from actual fact. In reality, these wars are the same as the great ones of the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. The Greek epics too were cribbed from the Hindu ones, which are still extremely popular in the Far Orient, where they are revered as actual Holy History and are commemorated in all sorts of dances, plays and rituals.
Moreover, these wars are the same as those allegorized as the battle of Osiris and Seth and that of Horus and Seth. They are also the Battle of Michael and his angels against Lucifer and his own; the battle of Ahura-Mazda against Ahriman; that of the Tuatha de Danann against the Fomoré, etc., etc.. The list is endless and includes the New World, where the omnipresent Twins pursue their endless battle in both fiction and in fact, as we commented further above.
