5. Brahmins are Jews
When Kumarikandam submerged under sea, a specific family (referred as Noah’s family by researchers) who lived in a tiny island is managed to escape from the deluge. The ship with Noah’s family carried to Ararat mountains of east Turkey. As they survived the flood without getting drowned, they call themselves as inflated who can’t be drowned.Kumarikandam was Tamil speaking continent, obviously Noah carried Tamil with him. The Tamil word for inflated is oodhu.
Oodhu ->Yoodhu ->Judhu ->Jude (Jew)In Judaism, Jews represent themselves as ‘chosen people’. In their Biblical Hebrew, the Genesis flood narrative (chapters 6-9) tells the story of God’s decision to return the earth to its pre-creation state of watery chaos and then remake it in a reversal of creation.
The Jewish legend says that “Noah was a righteous man and walked with God. Seeing that the earth was corrupt and filled with violence, God instructed Noah to build an ark in which he, his sons, and their wives, together with male and female of all living creatures, would be saved from the waters. Noah entered the ark in his six hundredth year, and on the 17th day of the second month of that year. The fountains of the Great Deep burst apart and the floodgates of heaven broke open and rain fell for forty days and forty nights until the highest mountains were covered 15 cubits, and all earth-based life perished except Noah and those with him in the ark who survive to be fruitful and multiply.“Noah carried the spiritual heritage of Tamil along with him. Lord Shiva was the only god worshiped in Kumarikandam during Noah’s period. They also worshiped conceptual godess Kali (godess of bravery and darkness) during the special occasions. Shiva was also called as yakovan (king of south).
Ya (south) + kovan (king) = Yakovan
Yakovan -> Yahova -> Yehweh (Jewish god)
As Shiva is having a stack of hair (jaddai/ saddai), he was also called as sadayon in Tamil. It became Elshaddai (god) in Judaism.The ancient Jews remembered Kali as Asherah and emotionally worshiped her by wearing black dress. Even today, black was the favorite colour of Jews. But they’re not aware of the full conceptual understanding of Kali. What they have perhaps known is that Kali was a god of war and destruction. So they might mistook that the way to please Kali is to create war and destruction.Noah somehow thought that his family alone survived the flood. Noah did not know that all parts of Kumarikandam did not submerged and the surviving people lived in India (Nagar), Africa (Negro), Australia (Ngaro) and China (Han) etc Hence Noah’s descendants lived for millennia by thinking, they’re the only chosen people of god. This faulty idea was also rooted in their mind and blood. The tropical human of Kumarikandam inhabited to similar tropical condition started new life similar to that of Kumarikandam. But the life of people who survived to ice region and desert were so hard. Jews were one among them. They struggled for food. They struggled to keep their food. But some how these people survived their for centuries.
Darwin’s theory of natural selection states that “Individuals with characteristics best suited to their environment are more likely to survive, finding food, avoiding predators and resisting disease. These individuals are more likely to reproduce and pass their genes on to their children”In order to survive in the land of limited food resources, the people in the cold and desert region practice a cunningness within them. According to theory of natural selection, this cunningness is naturally inherited to their descents and culturally encouraged as it is part of their survival. On the other hand, this emotional cleverness was low and not encouraged among tropical peoples as they lived in surplus. Once the ice age was at its peak, there is nothing left for the Jews in Khazar region to survive. They fight among themselves for food and started migrating to the western and eastern part of the world. Then only they come across the fact that they’re only one among many people who living in this world and god had given a wealthy life to everyone except them.
Darwin’s theory of invasive species states that ” An invasive species is a species that is not native to a specific location and that has a tendency to spread to a degree believed to cause damage to the habitats and bioregion they invade economically, environmentally, or ecologically“Jews feel so much of anger when their belief system was broken. As mentioned in the theory of invasive species, Jews can easily exploit the wealth of tropical humans with their high degree of cunningness. Thus Jews started life in every important regions as a new minority. They identified themselves as traders. Then they develop a strong bond with the ruling class of every society and most often ended in terrorising the monarchies with their cunning deeds.
Did Jews came to India?
Who are they now?
1. Physical AnthropologyAccording to anthropological view, the Brahmins of India are more taller and having fair complexion with sharp facial features when compared to that of indigenous Indian tribal groups. But these physical features of are closely matched with that of Jews.
2. GeneticsThe latest genetic research “The Indian origin of paternal haplogroup R1a1* substantiates the autochthonous origin of Brahmins and the caste system” in Journal of human genetics confirm that the Indian brahmins are of Jewish origin. The R1a haplogroup has often been observed with high frequency in European and east Asian demographic groups. The Indian origin of paternal haplogroup R1a1* substantiates a peculiar observation of the highest frequency (up to 72.22%) of Y-haplogroup R1a1* in Indian Brahmins than other castes. In order to explain this pattern, these scholars propose that R1a in India is due to earlier movements of people from central Asia or immigration from the northwest associated with Indo-European languages and culture. Another research of “Genetic affinities of the Jewish populations of India” by Dr. Mini Kariappa reconstructed the genetic history of genetic pattern of Indian Jews by investigating the patterns of genetic diversity. Consistent with previous observations, the results shows that namboothiri brahmins, tulu brahmins, chitpavan brahmins show high frequency to Jews.
3. Biblical and Purana figuresConstantine Samuel Rafinesque (American biologist) in his book ‘The American Nations’ discusses linguistic and traditional similarities between the two religions. He confirm that the traits of Noah (pronounced Nuh) is exactly matched to that of Manu (Mnuh) of Matsya puranam. That is, the flood was a judgement upon evil, it was sent by god to drown all men. A man and his family in a boat along with his animals and plants are saved. All the land was drowned when the boat is landed on the mountain and all living men and animals were the descendants of those who survived the flood.David Flusser (Israeli prof of Judaism) says that the tale of Abraham has many similarities with a certain story from the Upanishads, stating that “One can easily discover parallels in the Upanishads to the Abraham legend”.
Brum (Abhraham) was both the creation god of Jews and the father of Judaism, the first Jew. In Judaism he is the founding father of the Covenant, the special relationship between the Jewish people and God – leading to the belief that the Jews are the Chosen People of God. Brum at his old age greeted by god, had a child from his half-sister Sarah. His name is Issac and through him, the Jews flourished through out the present Israel region.
The same concept is manifested in the creation story of Hinduism through Purusha Shukta. The Brahma, creator god of Hindu mythology has similar attributes of Abram of Jewish mythology. Sarah was the consort of Brum, whereas Saraswati of similar traits was the consort of Brahma. Purusha shukta glorifies Brahmins as Brahmaputra (born from the head) leading to the belief that they are chosen people of god.
4. VocabularyIn reference to the research of Oriental Institute at Baroda, considerable amount of vocabulary shared by Sanskrit and Hebrew serve to illustrate the relation between Jews and Brahmins. Some of them areMeaning : Sanskrit : Hebrew
- Heaven : svah : svam
- Purpose : Surios : Kurios
- Embryo : bhru : Abru
- Priestly : Purohita : Uparohita
- First : Adam : Adiyam
- Earth : Adityam : Adamah
- Mother : Matri : Matha
- Salvation : Asvah : Yasuvah
- Upon you : Aham : Aleichem
- Fame : Yahasua : Yasasvi
5. PriesthoodJudaism has been compared with Brahminism by Osho Rajneesh (Indian godman) and Steven J Rosen (American author of vaishnavism) in their books. They cite the similarities between Brahmins and Jews who viewed themselves as “God’s chosen people.” Rosen adds that Brahmins had a “community of priests” while Jews had a “Kingdom of Priests” in his book ‘The Jedi in the Lotus: Star Wars and the Hindu Tradition’.The Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) has 39 books, written over a long period of time, and is the literary archive of the ancient nation of Israel. It was traditionally arranged in three sections. The first five books, Genesis to Deuteronomy. These books are the law book for Jews known as Torah, and tradition attributed them to Moses who is a leader of Jews and a lawgiver.
The Dharmashastras are based on ancient Dharmasutra texts, which themselves emerged from the literary tradition of the Vedas (Rig, Yajur, Sāma, and Atharva). Manusmriti is unique amongst dharma-shastras as it presents itself like a holy text beginning with the origin of the world. Manusmriti is the law book of Brahmins and its origin is attributed to Brahma, the creator, who passes it on to the first human, Manu, who passes it on to the first teacher, Bhrigu, who passes it on to other sages. Barbara A. Holdrege (Prof Religious Studies, UCSB) do a comparative study of Veda and Torah texts of Brahmins and Jews. She analysed that the sacred status, authority, and function of scripture in these traditions are shaped similarly with Veda and Torah as the paradigmatic signs of their respective traditions.
6. CustomsBernard Jackson (prof of modern Jewish studies) studied the similarities legal regulations, customs, and royal ordinances in Halakha in the Jewish tradition and Dharmasastra among Brahmins.
- The Jewish first commandment says, “I am the Lord.” One of the basic tenets of Brahmanism is “Aham Brahma Asmi,” or “I am the Creator.”
- The absolute, indivisible, incomparable god concept is similar in both groups.
- Like a devout Jew, a devout Brahmin is also required to pray three times a day, morning, afternoon and evening (traikalika-sandhya)
- Both perform ritual bath before special occasions.
- Both Jews and Hindus perform marriage rites under a canopy.
- Like Jews, the Brahmin womenfolk also sit in seclusion to eat their share in their public feasts.
- Both religions require the isolation of women during the days of the menstrual period and after childbirth.
- Brahmin and Jewish ritual objects are very similar. The pancha diyas or five lamps used by Brahmins are similar to the menorah lit during Hanukkah.
- Yom Kippur in the Jewish calendar coincides with Durga puja in the Hindu calendar. Purim and Holi occur on the same day.
7. Coming to age ritualAccording to Jewish law, when a Jewish boy attains teenage, he becomes accountable for his actions and becomes a bar mitzvah. There after, the boys bear their own responsibility for Jewish ritual law, tradition, and ethics, and are able to participate in all areas of Jewish community life.Similar ritual is followed by Brahmins called upanayam. A sacred thread is presented to the boy attains teenage to indicate that he has started learning the sacrifices. There after he learn or train to do ‘sacrifices’ involving Niyamas (procedures) and Karmas (duties) of personal, family and society.
8. Idol worshipMoses, the lawgiver of Jews, asked his people to follow idol worship according to Torah Deuteronomy.
“Then the Lord will scatter you among all nations, from one end of the earth to the other. There you will worship other gods; gods of wood and stone, which neither you nor your ancestors have known” : Deuteronomy 28:64Rig Veda mentions expert murti-sculptors such as Tvashta (1.20.6), and vividly describes the forms of sacred images of various deities (8.29). Other Vedas and later texts similarly attest to a longstanding tradition of murti puja (Idol worship) in Brahmanism.
9. Moon worshipSun-worship is a natural outgrowth of all the cultures where the nourishing warmth of the sun is considered the bringer of life. In contrast, moon-worship is a phenomenon of warm and desert regions. It is followed by Sumerians and Jews. They followed lunar calendar. Moon worship is very important among Brahmins compared to other communities in tropical India and they strictly follow lunar calendar. Crescent moon is an important symbol among Jews and Brahmins.
10. Cow worshipTorah mentioned that when Moses descended from Mt. Sinai, he found the Jews worshipping the golden calf. In Judaism bull was always associated with deity in a sacred character. The form in which this thought found expression in Israel was in their representation of Yhwh by an image of an ox or bull made of gold. This sacredness of the cow is likewise a fundamental part of Brahmanism. In Vedas, the cow is associated with Aditi, the mother of all the gods. “He shall not touch with his foot a Brahmana, a cow, nor any other (venerable beings).”
[Āpastamba Dharmasūtra]You may feel that I’m obsessed in proving Brahmins as Jews, but all I wanted is to speak about a possible politics behind this selective forgetting of history. The migration of Jews is misidentified in history as Aryan invasion. There is no such thing like Aryans; they are Jews who fleeing to a better land for better life with no intention of Invasion. They were not kings or military commanders. They had neither an army nor weapons. Evidently, Jews were in contact with a few prominent traders from Indus region who welcomed their coming. It was only in this scenario that they could have settled down in the very well administrated towns and cities of the Indus. The Jews migrated to north-western part of India through Khyber Pass of Spin Ghar ranges about 3500 years ago. They were the present day north Indian Brahmins.The second wave of Jews migrated from Israel region in Indian trade ships and were brought to Uduppi of Karnataka during 2nd century BCE by Indian traders and sailors. They were the Hebrew Jews who become south Indian brahmins.You may have that obvious doubt whether Jews invaded us or not. As far as Jews remain as Jews, they can’t terrorise the natives. But once Jews reorganised as Brahmins, the ‘real Aryan invasion’ had arisen. In the end, a group with neither wielded arms nor wealth simply manipulated us with their cunning strategies to become the holy lawgivers!However we understand why and when Jews become Brahmins. But HOW??
