In the words of author Michel Danino: " With the distorting glass which the Aryan invasion theory imposed on India's past now shattered, it is only a matter of time before all the pieces are removed. One point now established is the antiquity of the Veda. Though Indian tradition and seers always held the Veda to be "many thousands of years old," Max Muller and his school brought this down to 1200-1000 B.C. But the Vedic nature of the Indus-Sarasvati civilization and the presence of the Vedic people along the Sarasvati in full flow now pushes this date back to at least 2500-3000 BC. That would have come as no surprise to Voltaire, who remarked with much commonsense: 

"It does not behove us, who were only savages and barbarians when these Indian and Chinese peoples were civilized and learned, to dispute their antiquity."

The discovery of Dr. Subhash Kak, (professor of electrical and computer engineering at the Louisiana State University), of an astronomical code embedded in the Rig-Veda has led to new insights in this field; it showed that the ancient Rishis knew the distance between the Sun and the Earth to be about 108 times the Sun's diameter (the same with the Moon's distance from the Earth); they had also observed the periods of five planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn), and determined the solar year to last between 365 and 366 days - all this several thousand years before similar knowledge showed up in Egypt, Babylonia or Greece.

Mathematics, astronomy, language, script, and a perennial culture. That is exactly what the famous U.S. historian Will Durant meant when he wrote in the 1950s:

"India was the motherland of our race, and Sanskrit the mother of Europe's languages: she was the mother of our philosophy; mother, through the Arabs, of much of our mathematics; mother, through the Buddha, of the ideals embodied in Christianity; mother, through the village community, of self-government and democracy. Mother India is in many ways the mother of us all."

Did You Know?

Gundestrup Cauldron

In 1891, a huge silver bowl containing seven decorated plates was unearthed in a peat bog in Denmark dates to 150 BC. Apparently it shows strong evidence -- including goddess-images similar to Lakshmi and Hariti and a god-image similar to Vishnu -- of cross-cultural connections between Indic civilizations and those of far northern Europe. Dr. Subhash Kak (professor of electrical and computer engineering at the Louisiana State University) has noted the apparent connections between Celtic/Druidic pre-Christian cultures of Europe and Hindu practices in his book, In Search Of The Cradle of Civilization: New Light on Ancient India - By Georg Feurerstein, Subhash Kak & David Frawley

According to him, Indic people were apparently present in Palestine, Turkey, Babylon in the 2nd millennium BCE. The names of the ruling dynasties of these places and some Sanskritic inscriptions tell us this. The father of the beautiful Nefertiti, Queen of Egypt, was a king of the Near East named Tusharatha or Dasharatha.

The Puranas also say an Indian tribe called the Druhyus emigrated West. Whether they emigrated all the way to Europe, we cannot say. What is likely to have happened is that an Indic element became the political and religious aristocracy in many countries, all the way up to Europe. This may also explain the parallels between Indian and European mythology.

Cernunnos on the Gundestrup image       Pashupati - Yoga-like posture 

Watch Scientific verification of Vedic


Pashupati, Lord Shiva is the friend of animals. This indicates that he must have been a common deity of pre-Christian Europe. (For more refer to Indian Paganism).

The image of the Pashupati seal  and of the same Yogi on the Gundestrup Cauldron from Western  Europe shown on the left tells the story of the Aryan Invasion and the nineteenth century discipline called Indology that created the theory. The Pashupati seal from India is nearly five thousand years old, while the Gundestrup Cauldron was made a little over two thousand years ago. 

This means: while scholars have been telling us about an 'invasion' of Indo-Europeans from Eurasia to India, what evidence there is tells us exactly the opposite— a recorded movement in ancient times from India to West Asia and Europe.
