The Tepe Telegrams

A few kilometres northeast of modern Şanlıurfa in south-eastern Turkey, the tell of Göbekli Tepe is situated on the highest point of the otherwise barren Germuş mountain range. Rising 15 metres and with an area of about 9 hectares, the completely man-made mound covers the earliest known monumental cult architecture in the ancient Near East. Constructed by hunter-gatherers right after the end of the last Ice Age, they also intentionally buried it about 10,000 years ago.

Göbekli Tepe has been known to archaeologists since the 1960s, when a joint survey team from the Universities of Istanbul and Chicago under the direction of Halet Çambel and Robert Braidwood observed numerous flint artefacts littering the surface of the mound. However, the monumental architecture remained undetected, and was eventually discovered by Klaus Schmidt on a grand tour of important south-eastern Turkish Neolithic sites in 1994. In addition to the high density of flint…

The Tepe Telegrams

Göbekli Tepe is situated on the highest point of the Germuş mountain range in southeastern Turkey. The spot is hostile to settlement; the next accessible springs are located in a distance of about 5 km northeast (Edene) and to the southeast (Germuş). A number of pits at Göbekli Tepe’s western slope could represent cisterns to collect rain water; although their exact date could not have been determined yet. With a total capacity of 153,12 cubic metres (cf. Herrmann-Schmidt 2012) they may have accumulated enough water for people to stay there for a longer periods of time, but probably not during the whole rainless summer. The next Neolithic settlements so far known were found in the plain in immediate vicinity of neayrby springs, like for example Urfa-Yeni Yol.

From its discovery onwards, the interpretation of Göbekli Tepe’s suprising architecture has centered around the terms ‘special purpose buildings’ (Sondergebäude), ‘sanctuaries’, or even…

HINDUISM AND SANATAN DHARMA

This part 2 of BhagvatGita about Vedic astronomy and Lokas , multiple Universe. Part one is Here

Calculation of Time, from the Atom

Srimad-Bhagavatam Canto 3 Chapter 11

By His Divine Grace A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

TEXT 1

TRANSLATION

The material manifestation’s ultimate particle, which is indivisible and not formed into a body, is called the atom. It exists always as an invisible identity, even after the dissolution of all forms.

The material body is but a combination of such atoms, but it is misunderstood by the common man.

PURPORT

The atomic description of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam is almost the same as the modern science of atomism, and this is further described in the Paramāṇu-vāda of Kaṇāda.

In modern science also, the atom is accepted as the ultimate indivisible particle of which the universe is composed.

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam is the full text of all descriptions of knowledge, including the theory of atomism…

HINDUISM AND SANATAN DHARMA

The Hindu influence clearly seen in Central America.
Latest and strongest evidence of the Vedic connection and influence in the Maya culture of Mexico and Central America.

Like the Hindus, the Mayas had knowledge of zero, they were the only ones besides the Indians, using this mathematical concept.

About astronomy, the old Maya Observatory is better aligned, and oriented than the present day Paris Observatory.

The use of the wheel, although the Mayas used the wheels mainly in children toys,

Among other similarities, a technique for manufacturing bark paper, also used in other places in the South Asian continent, particularly in Indonesia.

The Hindus could have traveled to the Americans from Indonesia too, since they were very good navigators.

The temples are remarkably similar, with the slopes of the roofs, their dimensions, and positions of doors and windows, practically like the Hindus and their Vastu Shastra. Other dimensions, like the…

Vedic Time System

HINDUISM AND SANATAN DHARMA

It’s time to explain the gifts from Vedic Science to the world. Vedic Time System, was based on science. Part Two

Smallest Unit of Time
Vedic astronomy give a very detailed division of the Time upto the lowest sub division level of prāņa (respiration), a time lapse of four seconds. The lowest sub divisions prāņa is the same part of the day as the minute is of the circle, so that a respiration of time is equivalent to a minute of apparent revolution of the heavenly bodies above the earth. The astronomical division of sidereal time are:

1 paramanu 60,750th of a second
1 truţi = 29.6296 microseconds
1 tatpara = 2.96296 milliseconds
1 nimesha = 88.889 milliseconds
45 nimesha = 1 prāņa 4 seconds
6 prāņa = 1 vinādī 24 seconds
60 vinādīs = 1 nadī 24 minutes
60 nādīs = 1 ahorātra
As, according to modern standards, 24…

Chand Baori Stepwell in India

The Chand Baori Stepwell in Abhaneri, Rajasthan — India is the oldest and deepest ancient stepwell in the world. Built Between 800 and 900 AD, the well is made up of over 3500 steps in a pyramid pattern that act as stairwells to allow residents of Abhaneri to walk down to the waterline for drinking water, or even a bath. This area of Rajasthan if not only very hot, but notoriously dry, so in centuries-past, this well was a source of health and life.

Abhaneri Step Well

While three sides of the square well are the steps, the forth side is made up of 13 stories worth of pavilions and rooms. During the hot summer months, feasts and relaxation took place in these pavilions, and this would be the center of town where entertainment would be held. This was not just a well, it was a cultural center.
