Hindu gods in ancient Europe

Parjanya (Parjnya), a Vedic deity of rain, is often associated with Indra – the “thundergod” who punishes sinners. There are two hymns dedicated to him in the Rigveda (5.63 and 7.101). For example: “When thou, with thunder and with roar, Parjanya, smitest sinners down, This universe exults thereat, yea, all that is upon the earth.”

The word Parjanya means “rain” or “rain cloud” in Sanskrit. In Slavic mythology, Perun – the Slavic thunder god – is equivalent to him, but also Finish Perkele and many other European ancient gods of thunder. Prayers dedicated to this god help the rain to bestow blessings on us. Parjanya was also one of the Saptarishis (Seven great sages).

Sanskrit, the language used long ago by religious scribes and wise men, nowadays conveying ancient messages to us from holy texts, is presently only a liturgical language like Latin. The Indian Vedas were written in Sanskrit. In addition to liturgical purposes, this language is spoken at some places even today, particularly in some institutions where people feel the need to reinvigorate it. In the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, there are villages where ordinary people speak Sanskrit. Sanskrit is used also in Mattur, a village in the Indian state of Karnataka.

The origin of the word “red” (English), or “rot” (German) probably comes from the primordial adoration of the god of fire, most likely a deity like Slavic Rod, Hindu Agni or Rudra. You will find many words with similar sounding both in European languages and Sanskrit – for example, the Sanskrit word “rakta” – English “red” (“rudy” in Czech, “rouge” in French, “rojo” in Spanish, etc.). The origin of the word “red” most probably dwells in fire, which had been adored and personified by all ancient and tribal cultures.

The Slavic creation legends slightly vary in dependence on the region (Serbia, Slovenia, Russia, Poland, etc.). Swarog or Svarog is the Slavic sun and fire god. In the Slavic religion, Svarga is heaven. In Sanskrit, Svarga is heaven too.

Some Hindu gods have remarkable similarity with Slavic deities – both in pronunciation and in significance. Sanskrit and Slavic words may not be always entirely similar (in pronunciation and connotation), but may carry remarkable elements of similarities like in the case of the Slavic god Veles (god of shepherds and a great serpent), who bears a resemblance to Vedic Vala, a Hindu Naga (serpent) and Asura (mostly sinful and power-seeking deities) mentioned in Rig Veda over twenty times.

Lord Shiva’s attributes are materialized in a Slavic female deity called Siwa, Ziva, or Zivena – goddess of fertility and love. A similarity with Sanskrit appears in the fact that the word “ZIVA” means (in Sanskrit) “the one who is kind”. Unlike war or scorpion goddesses, goddesses of love are kind for most of the time.

There is yet another similarity between Shiva and Ziva – goddess Kali and Morena, the sister of Ziva. Both Kali (Hindu goddess) and Morena (Slavic goddess) are goddesses of death. In Hinduism, Kali is tightly associated with Shiva, as she is a form of Durga, the Shiva’s consort. There is not a big difference between these two, as Shiva’s association to Kali is as strong as Ziva’s connection to Morena. If we look at similarity in pronunciation, Slavic Morena has its equivalent in the Sanskrit word maraNaanta (coming to death).

As concerns symbolism, lingam is a Hindu (Shiva’s) symbol for fertility – the same dimension that ancient Slavs attributed to Ziva.

Vedic god Surya has his Slavic equivalent in goddess of beauty – Zora, Zarya, or Zori. There is also the word Zorya, which identifies less important goddesses – Slavic guardians of the dawn, but connection to the sun is indisputable.

Slavic svastika

Hindus use svastika as a symbol of good luck. Boreyko coat of arms is the symbol of svastika pointing to the left; it had been used in Poland. Svastika can also be found in symbolism of Svarog.

Comparison of Sanskrit and Russian

Slavic languages are similar, so the comparison shown below is made of words that sound equally and mean the same thing in Russian, Czech and Slovak. If you want to find out more about Sanskrit words, visit this website –

The first words on the left are in Russian, then follow words in Sanskrit and finally you may learn what they mean in English:

mama maatR mom brat bhraatR brother vsegda sadaA always putnik pathika pilgrim (or traveler) zit jiivati live kogda kada when nebo naaka heaven sneznij sahima snowy

Slavic languages have many similarities with Sanskrit, for example – catr (number four), which is spelled as “chetyre” in Russian and “shtyri” in Slovak, means the same thing. 9 He found the light of heaven, and fire, and Morning: with lucid rays he forced apart the darkness. As from a joint, Brhaspati took the marrow of Vala as he gloried in his cattle. Rig Veda, HYMN LXVIII. Brhaspati.

Pope to bewitch Europe and mislead the masses!

Watch for the pagan sorcerer-pope to start performing many supernatural deeds, counterfeit miracles, to mislead the masses and get them eating out of his hand to support the Vatican’s elect to “defend” Europe and “Western Christian Civilization” and murder any who oppose them.

Daniel 11:36

The King Who Exalts Himself 36 “The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place. (Antiochus Epiphanes – “god in the flesh” – was only a type of the unholy Terror about to be unleashed).

Acts 8:9-11

Simon the Sorcerer 9Now for some time a man named Simon had practiced sorcery in the city and amazed all the people of Samaria. He boasted that he was someone great, 10and all the people, both high and low, gave him their attention and exclaimed, “This man is the divine power known as the Great Power.” 11They followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his magic.

2 Thessalonians 2:7-12

7For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, 10and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

Revelation 13:13-17

13And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. 14Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword (final revival of the unholy Roman Empire of the German Nation) and yet lived. 15He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast (imperial restoration), so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, 17so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.

Biblical prophecy announces that the European Union will morph into a bloodthirsty BEAST, a politico-ECONOMIC superpower under the evil influences of the Vatican who will seduce it with satanic offers of all the kingdoms of this world and great riches in exchange for enforcing their idolatrous traditions, especially SUNDAY WORSHIP.

Watch for the pope and his “man of the hour” to storm the world stage, to put on a command performance, Satan at his best; the darkest before Dawn prophecies being fulfilled before our very eyes culminating with the real Jesus Christ’s return from Heaven to make the diabolical duo history!

More European Cost Savings

Ofcom have already forced mobile networks to reduce the cost to make and receive a call while in the EU making going abroad much cheaper. The calling costs are now capped at 28 pence for a call made in the EU back to the United Kingdom, and 19 pence to receive a call while in an EU country.

Last year the European Telecom Commissioner stated that she would impose a similar cap on data roaming costs if operators did not start lowering their costs. Cutting the cost of wholesale data is the first step, once enough operators are on board then consumer costs will drop – hopefully to a flat rate cost throughout the EU.

So five operators over Europe have joined together to agree a new wholesale rate. The operators, including 3, KPN and Base cover 10 European markets, over 60% of the European Union. As of March 1st the new agreed rate between the five operators will be 0.25 Euros, or 19 pence per MB.

So fingers crossed this will be the start of lower data roaming rates across Europe.

Retreat from stock market, impending european implosion worrying

The WSJ is wrong or perhaps premature. Investors have not done an aboutface. Not yet. They ve wheeled around a few degrees from theircomfortable bullish trajectory of a few months ago.

But they willhave to keep turning in order to change course by a full 180degrees. Then, watch out below! What could make investors spin further against stocks? Two things: First, Europe could blow up much worse than people expect. The eurozone has been on the brink of disaster for so long, most people thinkit will stay on the brink forever as if there were an invisiblebarrier that keeps them from going over the edge. We are connoisseurs of disaster here at The Daily Reckoning . Not that we like them; we just appreciate them.

They clear away alot of dead wood. And, yes, dead presidents. People invest badly.They spend unwisely. All is well til the disaster hits. Then, thedead presidents disappear.

One thing we ve noticed is that disasters seem to take longer thanyou expect to start and then they move faster than youanticipated. Remember the dot.com blow-up? You could see it comingfor years. Then, when it happened it blew up fast. Poof hundredsof billions in dead presidents gone! So too the collapse of the housing industry particularly those low-docs, cash back, subprime mortgages was visible longbefore it happened. We waited.

We waited. And we waited some more.And then, when the catastrophe began, things happened so fast wecouldn t keep up with them. The breakdown in Europe could happen fast too. I don t know about you, said a hedge fund manager we talked tolast weekend, but if I were in Greece , I d be looking for a way to get my money out of the country.There s a very good chance the Greeks will convert euro depositsto drachma.

They will probably close the banks. The Greeks willprobably riot and burn banks if not bankers. So, what would you do if you were in Spain or Italy ? Wouldn t you be trying to read the handwriting on the wall too?And wouldn t you want to get your money out too? Of course you would. That s why the Swiss are talking aboutimposing negative interest rates, to try to discourage otherEuropeans from exchanging their euros from Swiss francs. You don t have to look very far ahead to see what would happen.Just wait til people start lining up in front of the banks to gettheir money out.

If you were in Athens and you saw people lining up to get their money out of thebanks wouldn t you get in line too? Most people would. And thebanks don t have enough money to honor all those depositors claims. So the banks have to go broke and the whole thing fallsdown hard. According to the news media, everyone is making plans for whenGreece says auf wiedersehen to the euro. But even an orderly exit of Greece from the euro is estimated to cost $1 trillion.

Andthere isn t enough money in all the banks in Euroland to pay for adisorderly exit. Which is one reason we re keeping our Crash Alert flag flying. The other major reason for guarding against a crash is this: allthe world s major economies are approaching recession. Old friend Marc Faber says he expects a global recession either in the last quarter ofthis year or early in 2013.

Asked about the odds, Faber put them at 100%. One hundred percent does not sound like odds to us. It sounds likecertainty. We doubt anything in economics is that sure. But let ssay the odds of a synchronized worldwide recession are only50%.

That still puts a lot of empty space between today s stockprices and a recession-inspired bottom. We wouldn t want to bestanding in that space, lest the market crash down upon our heads. You know, dear reader, that it is futile to make predications,especially about the future, as Yogi Berra would say. But heck, we ll take a guess. The euro zone won tfall apart at least, not completely.

The Germans will give way. Itwon t be pretty. No elegant solution will be found. Instead,an awkward, ugly even grotesque combination of concessions,compromise, and craven corruption will keep the European projecttogether. In fact, it will be more together than ever.

Francois Hollande and Angela Merkel will find a way to preserve the union. Most likely, the Europeanswill learn from the US. They will write a huge check to memberstates to cover or partially cover the debts of the past. Theunion will be responsible for the debts of, say, Greece or Ireland . It will be a scheme vaguely reminiscent of the Brady Bonds, or Alexander Hamilton s takeover of state debt after the American Revolution, with newdebt backed by the EU of extremely long duration (long enough to allow inflation to cutdown the real value of the bonds.) The debts of the future, on theother hand, will be the responsibility of member states (lendersbeware!).

Everyone can save face. Lenders (banks) will get theirmoney (more or less). Borrowers can avoid disorderly defaults andbankruptcy (more or less). And Germany and France can hold onto their beloved European Union (more or less) andstill not be on the hook for Greek behavior going forward.

But as to the second danger that of a global recession and bearmarket investors won t be so lucky. The odds may not be 100%,but they are high enough so that a wise investor will take cover. Beware the disappearance of dead presidents in a crash. Then,beware again: the dead presidents could stay dead for a long, longtime.
