Fibonacci Number – Is it a Hindu number used in Ancient India? Secret of Life | Praveen Mohan |

Hey guys, today we’re going to look at a number called the Fibonacci number and how this is a Hindu number which originally came from ancient India and this Fibonacci number is the basis of life itself. Now according to historians, the Fibonacci number was discovered around 1200 A.D – that’s about 800 years ago by an Italian called Fibonacci.

Fibonacci was not an Indian and he was also not a Hindu, he was an Italian and he was a Catholic so why is Fibonacci a Hindu number? First, we need to understand what is a Fibonacci number. Fibonacci number is a series of numbers like this. You may or may not include zero and you can start: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13… What is so special about this series? And this series goes forever. Why not just make up another series like this?

For example, why don’t we say 2, 4, 6, 10, 16? What is different between this series and this Fibonacci series? Fibonacci number was not a random number made up by human beings. It is the number of the Gods and this is the difference between life and death. What do i mean by that? Why do I say that the Fibonacci number is the number of the Gods? To understand the Fibonacci number and its connection to life, let’s take a look at one cell. Let’s just take one cell and let’s assume that this cell has just been born.

Before this there is nothing and then this cell has just been born. After two minutes, the cell becomes fully mature and after the cell becomes fully mature it gives birth to a new cell every minute. So in the first minute the cell is brand new. In the second minute the cell is one minute old,i’m putting one line for one minute old. In the third minute the cell would have been fully mature, so i’m putting two lines like this.

Now it would have given birth to another cell. Now in the fourth minute, this cell is fully mature, so it will give birth to another cell, but this cell would be one minute old. In the fifth minute the cell is already mature, so it gives birth to another one. Now this cell would be one minute old, this cell would be two minutes old. Because this is also mature this gives rise to another cell. Now, what happens at the sixth minute?

You can solve this problem in two methods, you can go on drawing circles and try to figure out how many cells will be there at the end of six minutes. Or you may have recognized a pattern already. Here this is 1 and here this is 1. The next level is 2. This is actually 1 + 1. This is 2. And in this level you see 3 cells which is actually 1 + 2. This is why this is 3 and at this level you can see this there are a total of 5 cells and you you can see that it is 2 plus 3 that’s 5.

So at the sixth minute your answer would be 8 because 3+5 is 8. This is the Fibonacci series and you may ask: do cells really replicate this way? Do cells multiply or divide like this? This is called the asymmetric cell division under optimal conditions. You can see the Fibonacci number not only atcell level, you can even see it in DNA SUPRA CODE.

Now what is the dna supracode? It is the organization of nucleic acid bases in a dna sequence. Nowyou can see the Fibonacci number in micro level in various places in a living organism. For example, you can also see it in the order of replication of dna in living cells. So you do see that there is a connection between the Fibonacci numbers and life itself. So Fibonacci number holds the key to life but do we need a microscope to see the Fibonacci number?

Let’s take a look at something we can see. Assume that i’m going to plant the seed in the soil, okay? so this is a seed that i’m planting in the soil. The first day, the root will grow a little bit and the second day the root grows a little bit longer. After that on the third day, it will still grow longer, but will split into two. And on the fourth day, one will just grow longer while the other will split

like this. This is kind of a weird drawing and who is going to actually look at how seeds grow in real time. Believe it or not, this is what ancient hindus were studying what is the point of this diagram? The point is, if you take it at any timeline, it will match the Fibonacci number. So here you can see 1, here you can see 1, here you can see 2, here you can see 3 and the root will grow further based on the Fibonacci number.

And not just the root, As above, so below.. so if you look at the stem or the trunk or shoot, again you will see the same pattern of Fibonacci numbers growing. So you can see the Fibonacci number in roots above the ground in stems or shoot. You can also see it in leaves you can see it in flowers, you can also see it in seeds. If you look at a sunflower, there are seeds arranged in the middle of the flower and they will always be in Fibonacci numbers. If you take a pineapple, and if you look at thescales, you’ll be surprised because the scales will always be in 5, 8, 13 or 21. All of these are Fibonacci numbers so you can understand that the fibonacci number not only occurs at micro level, it also occurs at macro level and this is not just limited to a plant or a tree. When the seeds disperse,even the seeds fall in fibonacci pattern.

So we’re looking at an entire orchard that is formed on the basis of Fibonacci numbers, an entire forest will be designed based on the Fibonacci number. This is why i call Fibonacci as the number of the gods but why do I call this amazing number, the Fibonacci number as a Hindu number? Fibonacci number was discovered 800 years ago by an Italian who was a Catholic but why do i call it a Hindu number?

Let me clear the board and let me explain it to you. So Fibonacci discovered this number around 1200 A.D, but 50 years before Fibonacci there was a great Sanskrit poet in India called Hemachandra around 1150 A.D. He was teaching some students about how to compose poetry. In Sanskrit syllables there are short syllables and there are long syllables. The short syllable is called Laghu and it takes one beat of time and the long syllable is called Guru and it takes two beats of time. Now, one of his students asks a question to Hemachandra. He says ‘there are 8 beats to fill up in a poem.

How many combinations are there to fill using Laghu and Guru? So think about this, so you have eight spaces you can fill. So you can take all short, for example. And you can also do all long for example. And you can also do short, long, short, long, and you can do a long, long, short. What do you think is the answer to this question? How many combinations do you think there are to be filling up these 8 spaces? Believe it or not, Himachandra gives an instantaneous reply. He starts by saying, add 1 + 1 and keep going and keep adding the consecutive numbers and the 8th number you get is the number of combinations you can use to fill up these 8 spaces. So he actually gives the correct answer that the 8th Fibonacci number is the number of combinations you can use to fill up these spaces.

At this point, two things could shock you: 1) if you know enough Indian history, you know Hemachandra was not a Hindu poet. He was a Jain poet he belonged to Jainism. The second thing that could shock you is that Hemachandra was only 50 years before Fibonacci. Fibonacci was publishing his book around 1200 A.D and Hemachandra was giving out this answer to his students about 1150 A.D, just about 50 years before Fibonacci. and that’s not a big deal, maybe these two people were contemporaries and they both had the same thoughts.

But I’m shocked by the 3rd aspect: why did Hemachandra give an instantaneous reply? And why was the answer so brief without explaining how he came to that conclusion? Why did Hemachandra did not take his time to explain how he arrived at the right answer to such a complicated question? Think about this when somebody asks you here’s a right angle triangle and one side is 1 foot

the other side is also 1 foot what is the length of the hypotenuse? To most people, they would really answer this as √2 and that would be the end of the conversation. Because we have 2500 years of Pythagoras theorem before us so we don’t find the necessity to explain the same thing over. We don’t really say this is one squared and this is one squared and if you add both the squares then it would be the result of it.

We don’t really explain it, we just give out the answer because we are sitting with 2500 years of Pythagoras before us. This is exactly what is happening with Hemachandra. Hemachandra is not explaining how he came to this conclusion, he is merely giving out the solution because Hemachandra did not discover the Fibonacci number. Hemachandra was sitting on thousands of years of knowledge of fibonacci numbers before him. The ancient Hindus knew about the Fibonacci numbers thousands of years before Hemachandra. At this point, some of you will say: Now Praveen, this is why YouTube bans you, this is why Facebook bans you, this is why Twitter bans you, because you exaggerate things. It’s one thing if you say Hemachandra gave the right to answer about Fibonacci number before Fibonacci in 1150 A.D, but why are you exaggerating this and saying that there was thousands of years of knowledge about Fibonacci numbers before Hemachandra? This is why you get banned because you exaggerate Indian history.

I have actual proof of this, there was a great mathematician called Pingala, he was a Hindu mathematician, he was living around 200 B.C. Some scholars even believe that he was living much older in time around 500 B.C, but most historians accept that he was living around 200 B.C and Pingala actually put the Fibonacci numbers in a text and he called the Fibonacci number as ‘Maatra Meru’. This is the original name of the Fibonacci numbers. If you look up the text of Pingala, you will be astonished because Pingala clearly lays out how the Fibonacci numbers work 2200 years ago, and not only that Pingala also discovered the Pascal’s Triangle.

Now, pingala really lays out how short syllables and long syllables fill up these spaces and he clearly explains the Fibonacci series as we know it today. Maybe this is too dull for you – short syllable, long syllable, Sanskrit, the old language. Maybe this is just too dull for you. If you’re young, you may think this is just too boring, so let’s switch gears. So let’s say you want to do some competitive exam, you want to take SAT, GRE, IIT exam, you want to do IPS or IAS and you will encounter a question like this.

So these are the steps in a staircase and you can take 1 step or you can take 2 steps. How many combinations can you use, if there are a total of 10 steps? The answer is the 10th Fibonacci number. This is a very complicated question you will encounter today, if you’re taking a very advanced exam. Believe it or not this is actually used in computer programming this is called Dynamic Programming, programmers use this. And the answer to all these complicated questions that you will face today were given by a Hindu mathematician 2200 years ago. This is why I call the Fibonacci number as a Hindu number which originated in ancient India.

Now you know that Fibonacci number was originally a Hindu number, but did Fibonacci steal this number, hide the sources, to promote himself? No, he did not. Why? Because his name is not Fibonacci at all. It’s very interesting because Fibonacci has written an amazing book called the Liber Abacci. It transformed the way Europe was doing business and mathematics, but Fibonacci never spoke about himself. In fact, most scholars are still debating about what his original name was, most people think his original name was Leonardo Bonacci but they’re still not sure. And Fibonacci was a very modest person and he did not promote himself.

Even better, Fibonacci gave full credit to the Hindu mathematical system. In fact in his book he called this new system as ‘Modus Indorum’ which means the ‘Method of the Indians’. In fact, Fibonacci goes one step further, he not only praises Hindu mathematical system, he even says when you compare the hindu mathematical system with Arabs and Pythagoras, Pythagoras seems almost like a mistake. This is incredible because Fibonacci is saying when you compare Pythagoras, who’s considered the father of mathematics by many people, when you compare Pythagoras with theHindu system Pythagoras seems almost like a mistake.

If somebody walks up to you and he says Pythagoras is a mistake you would think this person is nuts, but it is Fibonacci who is saying this. He was a great mathematician, so maybe he knew something that we don’t. And Fibonacci was a transformative genius, he did many transformations. He created a new world and we actually live in the new world that he created. Let me show you what he did, but first let me clear this board.

Around 1200 A.D, Fibonacci publishes a great book called Liber Abacci. This word means the abacus, the abacus is the instrument with strings and beads which is used in calculation. Maybe you can identify this from the word Library which means book. So many people think this means the book of abacus or book of calculation, and if you go to Wikipedia, even Wikipedia says ‘Liber Abacci’ means the ‘Book of Calculation’.

But the word Liber also appears in this word Liberate or Free. Fibonacci was using this word to say ‘Free the Abacus’. What does it mean? At that time in Europe, all the people were still using roman numerals and the abacus and they were doing all the calculations with abacus. Fibonacci, after studying the Hindu calculation system, wanted to change Europe, he wanted people to get rid of the abacus and start following the Hindu calculation system of using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. This is called arithmetic.

So think about this, how do we do calculations today? So if i have to say, what is 15 + 16 how do i instantly know it’s 31? How do i know the answer is 31? 800 years ago before the time of Fibonacci, if you went to Europe and if you said what is 15 + 16, they would need an abacus and they would start working with the beads to come up with this number. Without using an abacus why am i able to do this using a marker and a board or even better, I knew the answer in my mind. So who invented this modern arithmetic? it was Brahmagupta, it was a great another great Hindu mathematician who lived around 600 A.D, so this is about 1400 years ago. And the modern arithmetic, the addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and all these numbers with the place value and doing all these complicated maths, was invented by Brahmagupta.

Today we follow the system around the world, but it was originally invented by another Hindu mathematician. And this method fascinated Fibonacci so much, he wanted the entire Europe to learn this type of calculation. He wanted people to free the abacus and stop using roman numerals and start using the Hindu arithmetic all over Europe. This was the purpose of Liber Abacci. Now, the Liber Abacci has many chapters which talks about various methods of Hindu calculation, this is why he called this Modus Indorum and the actual Fibonacci numbers is only a small part of this book. So what happens after Fibonacci publishes this book in 1200 A.D?

I told you Fibonacci was a transformative genius, he revolutionizes trade, commerce, business, banking, weights and measures, and he completely alters the system in Europe. Everybody in Europe was picking up this new method of calculation. Now think about this, before this book got published if you go to a bank and if you give them 50 bucks and if you ask for some change, everybody would literally pull out an abacus and they had to do the calculation to see how much

they have to give you. And Fibonacci changes this dramatically, the entire Europe gets revolutionized by this Hindu system. Now, how successful was Fibonacci in liberating the abacus? If you read history, it’s very interesting, because in the city of Florence in Italy, the bookkeepers actually passed a law saying that they should only use roman numerals and abacus and not use the new Hindu system.

And of course it did not work, because everybody switched to the Hindu mathematical system and the bookkeepers went out of business. So Fibonacci was amazingly successful in introducing the method of the Indians to Europe. In fact, some even believe it’s because of this new method, business became so big in Europe and they were able to accumulate so much wealth, they were able to conquer the entire world in a few centuries.

So at this point, there should be no doubt in your mind that the Fibonacci number originally came from ancient India and it was discovered by Hindu mathematicians, but there is another question: Did Pingala discover the Fibonacci number by himself? Or did he get it from an even more ancient Hindu source? Maybe we can take a look at this in the next video.

WHAT IS THAT? Weird Ancient Carving Baffles Experts! Vittala Temple, Hampi | Praveen Mohan |

Hey guys, I want to show you a unique carving in the Vittala temple at Hampi. It is very small, but it is a mind-boggling carving, do you know what this carving shows? I have shown you several unique features about this temple. I have shown you the Musical pillars in this temple, which give a variety of sounds when tapped on, this temple also has the stone chariot and how its wheels rotate like real wheels, but this tiny little carving is not even looked at by most visitors.

What is this? Why does it look so strange? Indian temples are known for their spectacular carvings with crystal clear details, but this one is totally different. It does not have any clear features although we can see some of the details. And it is a very mysterious carving.

If you look from the top angle, you might be able to see a frog. This looks very much like a frog and you can see its head, body and limbs. Interestingly, mostly kids, who have not reached their teenage yet, will see the frog. Adolescents and adults rarely see the frog.

If you are a teenager, whether you are a boy or a girl, you will tend to see a snake. Here you can see the snake’s head, its curved body and its tail. So, in the same carving, you can see the frog, which is the prey and also the snake which is the predator. So why do kids see the frog, while teens observe the snake?

If you are an adult male, a man who is between the age of 20 and 50,  you would probably see that there is a monkey grabbing a baby monkey from the floor, as though the bigger monkey is protecting its baby. If you are a man watching this video, and you belong to this age group, this is probably the first thing you noticed. Oh a monkey lifting its baby. Am I Right?

And an adult woman will look at it completely differently. She will notice a mother monkey breastfeeding a baby monkey, of course this is a fantastic sight to see, how a little monkey is drinking milk from its mother.

But what about people who are above 50, what do they tend to see? They would notice this: This is a flying monkey God, You can see his 2 legs in the air and you can even observe his tail if you look carefully. He is none other than Lord Hanuman who is trying to serve others faithfully. And then, if you renounce all your worldly desires, if you are ready to face death without any fear, if you become a monk or a sanyasi who seeks enlightenment, you will see something very different. You will see this: A cylindrical lingam, protected by a giant snake on top. This is only observed by the very wise or the very old. It is very interesting how such a carving was done many centuries ago in India.

But why do people with different age groups, different sexes, see different images in the same carving? Is this Spirituality or Science? For Ancient Hindus Spirituality was Science. Ancient builders always blended Spirituality and Science in a beautiful way.

Today, there is a specific type of art called Ambiguous Images – these are used by psychologists to learn about your mind and body. Let’s take a look at this picture. What do you see? Believe it or not, the only thing a young kid will see, is a bunch of dolphins playing inside a giant bottle. The kid will not be able to see anything else and he will even point out that his observation is accurate, because even the tag on the bottle says Dolphins explicitly. On the other hand, adults will see something completely different and have to make a conscious effort to identify the dolphins. This image is used by psychiatrists to see if a child has hit puberty. Let me show you another classic one here: What about this one? What do you see? If you noticed the Skull first, you are reasonably aware of your surroundings and can spot dangers from a distance, but if you only saw the woman in the mirror, and did not see the skull at all, you are a hopeless romantic. But WHY is this happening? It is the same picture, but why do people see completely 2 different images? Because you are not really seeing with your eyes, you are seeing everything with your mind. And how your mind is conditioned, changes the information you see with your eyes. So you may think you are an objective person, but you are always processing all information with some filters, and these filters are based on your conditioning.

And if you noticed both images in these ambiguous pictures, you are a very intelligent person who has solid analytical skills. Optical illusions like these are shown to patients and psychiatrists can even identify mental illnesses like schizophrenia using these pictures.

But it is interesting to note that this ambiguity or optical illusion was used in many carvings of ancient India. I have shown you many optical illusions. This one is 1300 years old in Mahabalipuram. Do you see a cow? Or did you see some other animal? While most optical illusion carvings only show 2 different images, the one at Hampi is very advanced. It shows multiple images and you will typically see what you like to see, depending on your age or sex. If you are a father, you are more likely to see the image of a monkey lifting the baby monkey, a typical dad’s gesture of protecting a baby. If you are a mother, you are more likely to see the baby monkey getting breastfed, because this is the key for the baby’s life. So, you can see how ancient builders skillfully created this ambiguous carving many centuries ago in India, which  shows at least 7 different images. But wait, I only talked about 6 images. Yes, there is another image I did not tell you about. Did you see it? If you noticed it, you are a rare individual, so please do tell me what you saw in the comments section. If you did not see it, watch the video again, and see if you can find it. And then leave a comment.

‘Barbarik’ – Did Ancient India have AI Robot Technology? Khatushyam Temple Mystery| Praveen Mohan |

Hey guys, in the year 1027 A.D, about a thousand years ago, a group of workers were digging the ground for water in a village called Khatu in the state of Rajasthan in India. After digging for more than 30 feet, they found a strange metal box which was sealed airtight. On the box, there was one word engraved: Barbarik. When they broke the box open, inside there was a skull, it was not a regular skull made of bones, but it was made of a shining metal. What’s even more strange, the skull had 2 eyeballs in the eye sockets. The workers immediately ran to the king who was ruling this place at that time. His name was Roopsingh Chauhan and he called all learned men to convene at his court to understand about this Barbarik’s Skull.

Who was Barbarik? How can his skull be made of metal? How did his eyes not decompose and disintegrate? The learned men searched many ancient texts and found nothing about Barbarik. Finally, a priest who came from the far south explained his story. Barbarik was a great warrior who lived 5000 years ago during the time of Lord Krishna. But there was something fundamentally different about Barbarik. He was not human, he possessed God-like strength. He was capable of handling multiple weapons at the same time, and could solve mathematical problems in lightning speed, but his speech was slow and he could not recognize faces. He was not intelligent like humans, he had artificial intelligence. What do I mean by this?

Let’s wind the clock back about 5000 years ago. Lord Krishna decides to meet Barbarik after hearing about his strength and intelligence. The great war of Mahabharata is about to begin soon, and Krishna wants to see which side Barbarik is going to support. Barbarik did not recognize Krishna, but demonstrates his extraordinary speed and precision in operating advanced weapons. Krishna is shocked and realizes that Barbarik would be the game changer in the upcoming war. However, Krishna observes that Barbarik’s intelligence is not human-like, he followed a robot like thinking and action. Krishna asks him about his position in the war. Barbarik replies that he would support the side which is weaker than the other side. He says it is his duty to save as many humans as he could.

At this point, Krishna poses a very simple question which completely bewilders Barbarik. Krishna says if Barbarik supports the weaker army and begins to destroy the stronger army, after a certain point, the stronger army would become the weaker army and the once weaker side would now become the stronger side. What would Barbarik do then? To a human being, this would not be a valid question, because human beings understand larger ideas, while robots and artificially intelligent machines look at events and are not able to grasp the bigger picture. But Barbarik then says he would switch sides and support the other army now because they have become weaker. Barbarik’s reply stuns Krishna because this means that Barbarik will keep switching sides between the 2 armies and destroy both sides completely.

Krishna concludes that even though Barbarik is capable of handling advanced weapons with extraordinary precision, with his unnatural intelligence he will cause harm to human beings, rather than help them. So Krishna decides to disable Barbarik’s physical activity so that he cannot use his arms or legs to attack or use weapons. Krishna asks Barbarik to cut his head from his body.

Here is the most interesting part: Barbarik removes his head and offers it to Krishna, but continues to talk. This clearly shows that he was not human, he was an artificially intelligent machine.

Some people claim that Barbarik was the grandson of Bhima, but this is highly unlikely because in that case ,he would have definitely been mentioned in the ancient text of Mahabharata. But Barbarik is not mentioned in the original text anywhere. Why did the author not even mention such a great warrior in the epic? Because Barbarik was not a living being, he was a Robot with artificial intelligence, this is why the author omitted this detail.

The name Barbarik itself points out that he is not human. It comes from the Sanskrit work Barbara which means inhuman, which is also related to the English  word Barbaric in as well. The English word Barbaric originally means inhuman, one who does not understand human emotions and thoughts.

Ok, now Barbarik’s head is in Krishna’s hands, but what does Krishna do with it? Krishna attaches 3 arrows to Barbarik’s head and now uses this set up, to fly over the Warfield of Mahabharata.  I mean, this is clearly a drone they are talking about. Today we use a drone with a central processor with cameras and it is attached to Three legs, this is called a Tri-copter. This is exactly what Krishna does. He takes the advanced processor with memory, the cameras were obviously the eyes of Barbarik and Krishna attached three rotors to this machine and converts it into a drone to watch and record the battlefield.

And even more interesting, today we can fly a drone and the drone can send us the images and media files live. So we can stand on the ground from a distance, and see the drone’s view live, using wireless technology. In fact, today in many games, Televisions are using drones to show the game live and commentators are commenting in real time about what’s going on. Believe it or not, this is accurately described in the ancient text of Mahabharata. The entire battle is watched live by a person named Sanjaya who is miles away from the battlefield and he describes everything in great detail. It is obvious that Barbarik was now flying over the battlefield and transmitting all the data over wireless technology to Sanjaya. Otherwise, how was Sanjaya able to see what was going on in the battlefield which was far away? Also, why else would Krishna attach 3 arrows to Barbarik’s head and make it fly all over the battlefield? All these details clearly point out that Barbarik was an AI robot which was then converted into a drone.

And this is why Barbarik’s skull and eyes did not decompose even after 5000 years. Because it is not made of bones and flesh, it is made of some other material. Even today, you can go to the site where they found Barbarik’s skull, a beautiful temple has been built on this site, it is called the Khatushyam temple. The place where they excavated his head is now a tank known as Shyam Kund inside the temple. Yes, you can go and see Barbarik’s skull, They have plastered and painted a face over the robotic head of Barbarik, but authorities confirm that this is his original skull. It is worshipped as a rare deity because it does not have body, only the head is displayed.

So what do you think? Was Barbarik an advanced Robot in ancient times? Or is everything just a fictional story?

World’s Tallest Buddhist Stupa – 1700 Year Old Jetavanaramaya, Sri Lanka

Hey guys, today we are going to see a very mysterious and ancient Buddhist Temple in Sri Lanka, this was built around 300 A.D, so it was built 1700 years ago. This temple is known as Jetavanaramaya jetavanaramaya, and you can see how it is built in the shape of a bell. I have shown you many Hindu temples which are usually in the shape of pyramids, but Buddhist Temples like these are called Stupas.

This stupa was the world’s tallest stupa at the time of its construction and it was also the third largest structure in the whole world. Today, the height of this stupa is around 200 feet, but originally it was twice as tall, it was 400 feet tall, when it was constructed.  As I enter the site, I notice  something strange. The floor is made of bricks. Normally ancient sites I show you, the floor is made of rocks like granite, but this floor is laid with bricks. Imagine the number of bricks needed to fill the floor. Now, forget the floor, look at this stupa. The entire stupa is almost completely made of bricks. Guess how many bricks were needed to build this stupa? Archeologists estimate that 93 million baked bricks were used, imagine the sheer volume of that and experts are baffled at this fact. How could ancient builders mass manufacture so many bricks 1700 years ago? Even after all these years, this is still the largest stupa with a base-area of 2.5 million square feet. It is also the largest brick building ever built. It is hard to show sizes on camera, so compare my size, and the size of the stupa. Yeah I am that small. I mean, yeah the stupa is that big.  But it was originally twice as tall as this size, think about that. Sri Lanka is known for its brilliant Buddhist structures.

While walking around the Stupa, I see a strange opening, a doorway kind of opening. I cannot access it because it is forbidden to climb to that level. What is inside this? Can I go in? Why is it locked? I need to go in and see what is inside.

Then I also see a shrine attached to the stupa. What is inside this shrine? Inside, there is a gigantic Buddha in reclining position, he looks mesmerizing. On top of his head, we can see that strange device, what is that. Everywhere in Sri Lanka, we see Buddha with that weird gadget fixed on his head.

He is the same Buddha we saw in another Buddhist site, he has a weird device on his head. But I look around, and I find some fascinating statues, there is something strange about them. They are all shown in a Namaste pose, paying their respect to Buddha. The entire shrine is very colorful, it is full of various colors.

I am very surprised at this hand. Is he wearing a wrist watch? Sure this statue is relatively new, but it must be a replica of an ancient statue which once stood here. I walk over to another statue and again, I see the same depiction. This bearded deity is also wearing a wrist watch.  Did Ancient Gods use wrist watches? Believe it or not many ancient carvings show wrist watches around the world. For example Sumerians Gods are shown wearing wrist watches. Especially Anunnaki Alien Gods. Or maybe it is just a bracelet, but it looks very advanced, there are a series of multicolored circles inside, suggesting it could be an advanced device. Will this wristwatch somehow communicate with the device on top of Buddha’s head? Is there some advanced technology involved? I don’t know.

On the ceilings you can see these strange circular paintings. These remind me of cymatic patterns, this is how sounds will be seen visually. But on the walls there are even stranger paintings. Look at this lovely painting. Here you can see an elephant, but there is something special about this. The elephant is made of several women. Exactly 9, this is called NavanaariKunjara in Sanskrit. Carvings like this exist in ancient Indian temples.

But here, this is even more strange, 5 women come together and form a strange shape. Can you see what they are representing? This is called Pancha Naari Ghataya, meaning 5 women forming a pot or a vessel.  What is the hidden meaning behind this? If you know the answer, you can leave it as a comment in the comments section.

On top of Buddha, you see what this is? Yes, this is the famous Hindu God, the elephant God Ganesha. And this is the not the only Hindu God, you can see several of them adorning the Buddhist Shrine. Hinduism and Buddhism are very close to one another. This purple colored statue is Lord Shiva, he has a snake around his neck and you can see the third eye on his forehead, and on the head, you can see river Ganga. A trident in one hand and a deer in the other hand. A very interesting set of Hindu gods shown here, they are portrayed as guardians of Buddha. Just outside the shrine, you can again see Shiva with plenty of snakes and a bull. What is that black thing coming out of his mouth on both sides? You can also see his son Murugan or Kartikeya with Om written in Tamil language, in his palm.

Now, let’s go out of the shrine and take another look at the stupa. Now, what is inside a stupa? I mean, you can walk inside Hindu temples, but most stupas look like solid structures with no way to access the inside. Experts say that Stupas are reliquary monuments. What does that mean? Reliquary Monument is a fancy term to indicate that a relic, an ancient object, is placed inside the monument. This stupa, has a part of Lord Buddha’s belt preserved inside.

Okay, let us look at these ancient entrances. They are at a higher level, so visitors cannot access them, but they are all gated and locked, so may be something important is inside. Look at the side of the doorway. It appears as though these are handrails on the side, for stairs. Do stairs exist inside? What do you think?

When you look around on the the doorway, you can see a strange carving. What is this? This is a 7 headed snake, a giant Naga. Look at the cracks in the stone, it is ready to crumble anytime. Here is the same Naga who has now shape-shifted into a human. Look at the feet of this reptilian, he is definitely going somewhere, perhaps he is going into the secret doorway of the stupa which can lead to something very precious. Remember the Nagas are always shown guarding secret doorways. This is shown in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Remember I told you this entire stupa is completely made of bricks, that is not true, there are some different stone blocks, specifically added to show various carvings of deities.

Here is another doorway, through which we can see something. It does seem to go somewhere. What is the purpose of them? What were they doing in ancient times? Are there stairs inside? Is it possible to reach the top? What is the purpose of the rectangular structure on top? Why is there a cylinder on the very top and why is it partly destroyed? Was this large structure built entirely for religious reasons or was there some kind of scientific purpose behind it?

INDIA’S HIDDEN SECRETS REVEALED? Evidence of Ancient Engineering Technology | Praveen Mohan |

Hey guys, today we are going to look at an ancient Hindu architect called Vishwakarman, and how everything we know about him is wrong.  This 900 year old carving shows Vishwakarman with multiple heads and holding various weapons – this is the standard explanation we get. But that is pure nonsense. If he has multiple heads, then how come the center head looks older while the other 2 heads show younger faces. And look at the weapon on the left, it is not a weapon at all, this head is actually looking into this device. Now who is Vishwakarman? According to Ancient Indian texts, Vishwakarman was the architect who engineered great cities like Dwaraka and Ancient Temples with insane perfection. An architect does not need weapons, so what is this device he is looking through? He is using a theodolite.

Now what is a theodolite? Have you ever wondered why you always see civil engineers standing and looking through something? That is a theodolite, it is similar to a small telescope. And look at the similarity of the modern theodolite and how the engineer is looking through it and how the ancient theodolite is shown and how this face is clearly looking through it. It is a perfect match. But what is the purpose of a theodolite? It is used to make sure that an area is perfectly flat or horizontally leveled before construction starts. In real life, most areas have horizontal differences and how do you make it flat? On one end of the site, you have the theodolite and on the other end, you must place a leveling rod or a leveling staff, which has markings. This is exactly what we see in the other hand in this statue. This is the leveling rod, of course the marking are gone now because of erosion, but it is quite visible in other carvings of Vishwakarman. For example it is clearly visible in this statue – This is from the Sun Temple at Modhera, built around 1000 years ago. Other statues as well show clear markings, I had initially thought it was just a simple ruler or a line gauge, but now it is clear that Vishwakarman was using a leveling rod and a theodolite to survey construction sites. Here you see another carving where he is clearly holding a leveling rod in one hand and a theodolite in the other hand.

If you look at ancient temples, one of the things we marvel about is, how they were able to achieve such flatness of the ground before they started construction. Even on mountain tops, they were able to create perfectly flat plane and then build temples. Now, we can fully understand how they achieved this. The ancient builders carved the details quite clearly, this is not a multi-headed god. They are showing multiple people working the same site, one guy is looking through the theodolite, the other guy is in charge of the leveling rod, and the older guy with the beard is the supervisor. Another 1000 year old statue shows the same iconography with 2 younger guys on the side holding the same devices with the older guy in the middle, this is quite clear how they have carved Vishwakarman. Remember how civil engineers make 3d drawings, these three faces could be indicative of that as well.

This is very interesting because we have always thought that Vishwakarman was one person, but perhaps it denotes a team of ancient engineers, just like how a team of engineers works on a site today. And I have been researching Vishwakarman for many months now, and I have seen various combination of faces in ancient temples. Sometimes All young faces, sometimes all older faces and sometimes a combination of both young and old.

Ok, so I have shown you how Vishwakarman achieved perfect horizontal level, in the X axis, but how did they achieve vertical perfection, in the Y axis. Because when you examine ancient Indian structures it is amazing how you never see tilted monuments, temple walls do not have any tilt, unless the builders wanted a tilt or a slope. Every angle was built perfectly. Now, what do we use to measure vertical perfection today? This is called a plumb bob, It has the shape of an onion or a top, like a spinning top with one half looking like a bulb and the other half with a pointed end.  And that’s exactly what we find in Vishwakarman’s hand. I have seen many many carvings and it is unbelievable, but what he is holding looks exactly like a plumb bob. What is even more surprising, today we have mechanized plumb bobs, we can push a button with one finger, and the string comes out. But they must have used the same button system in ancient times as well. Look at his finger. Why is he shown with one finger on a specific spot? I am sure some will argue that it is device is just a pot of water or something basic. If so, why does he have to use one finger like this? This detail is not shown in this carving alone, I have seen carving after carving, it clearly appears that he is using one finger, like how we push a button today.

And if you look at this device he is holding in the same hand, this is just a long cylinder and see how this is going into the ground. This is a soil probe, which detects the strength and nature of soil before we start construction. Today, we use a soil probe which is exactly like this, a long cylinder which goes into the ground, and then we can examine the soil sample. We have archeological evidence that soil tests were constructed 1000 years ago, we have inscriptions proving this. The Brihadeeswara temple in Tanjavur was constructed at its site after doing extensive soil tests in various areas. And this location was chosen because the soil was very good.

In his other hand, we can see a beaded mala or rosary which was used to calculate the sacred geometry using number 108. I have explained the importance of 108 and how it was used in Indian architecture in a different video.

Ok now, we saw everything about pre-construction tools, but what about the construction itself? How did they construct these impossible structures? The answer lies in what Vishwakarman is holding in his other hands. He is shown holding a strange tool which looks very advanced. It appears to have several twists and turns, it must be some sophisticated technology we still do not have. Think about our human mind, we are only able to recognize that this is an ancient theodolite because we have re-invented the theodolite in modern times. Otherwise, we will think this is just a knife or something like this. We can only understand what we have already seen. So if we have not invented an advanced instrument like this yet, we won’t be able to understand it, but may be in the future, someone will create such a device and then we will recognize what this really is.

While some carvings show this device with twists and turns, In other statues he is shown holding a dome like device. But strangely, almost all these devices have a split bottom, they don’t have one rod, but two split rods, resembling a tuning fork. Today we have just begun to understand the power of vibrations and sound, but is it possible that the ancient builders were far more advanced than us and were using resonance devices? Were they able to manipulate sound and construct these extraordinary temples?

I have just started to uncover the secrets of the ancient architects called Vishwakarman. It is very hard to differentiate Vishwakarman and the creation God Brahma because they are both depicted with similar features in many temples, and in ancient Hindu texts as well. The name Vishwakarman itself means ‘The One who created The World”. Is it possible that they were the original group of architects who engineered the entire human civilization? Is this why we were able build incredible structures like Kailasa Temple?

Our current understanding of ancient Indian history is very limited because we are looking down on the ancient builders, we are assuming they were less sophisticated than we are. So people automatically dismiss ancient devices as simpler meaningless objects, if they see a depression, they will say it is a spoon, and if it is blunt, they will say it is a weapon. So what do you think? Did ancient builders use advanced technology in India? Or was everything constructed with primitive tools?

They are UNEARTHING SOMETHING STRANGE all over ASIA! What is Going On? | Praveen Mohan |

Hey guys, in my previous video I showed you how plenty of lingams and other ancient statues were unearthed in India. But in this video, let’s go outside India and see if archeologists found anything related to Hinduism? This brilliant Pink colored giant lingam was found, not in India, but in the country of Vietnam. Vietnam is thousands of miles away from India, but there is no doubt that this is a Lingam, with a cylinder in the center and the base called Yoni. This was found just 2 months ago. Archeologists confirm that this is at least 1100 years old, it is made of one solid rock, it is a monolithic lingam. This looks so fantastic, it is so smooth and so beautiful that you want to go and touch it.  You can see that it was clearly buried under the ground, and you can also see how archeologists do the excavation, everything is done very methodically. And you may wonder, why does Vietnam, which is so far away from India, have this Hindu artifact buried underground? I will tell you why, but before that,

I wanna show you another strange lingam unearthed in Vietnam. This was excavated a few years ago, in a different site.  Look at this, look at the colors of this lingam, this is so strange. This lingam is even older than the pink lingam you saw before, and archeologists say it can even be from 4th century A.D. That means, it could be 1700 years old, and look at the lingam, the cylinder, I mean what kind of stone is this, and how did they achieve this level of polishing in ancient times? The cylinder is made of a different type of stone, the base is made of a reddish stone, and there are probably blocks of white sandstone beneath that, and then that is surrounded by bricks. So very very complicated and perfect engineering was used 1700 years ago.  But this is not the only statue found here, there are many statues, this is the elephant God Ganesha, you can see from the outline of its head and ears. There are many other lingams found in the same site. Archeologists say that they found a lingam made of crystal quartz weighing about 3.5 tons. 3.5 tons – that is more than 3000 kilograms or 7000 pounds. Vietnam has declared that it is the largest precious gemstone found in the entire country. And remember I told you that a giant crystal lingam also existed in the country of Cambodia, in a place called Koh Ker. The original name of Koh Ker was Lingapura, which actually means the city of lingams.

In this area, in Cambodia, there are ruined lingams found everywhere. We can find destroyed lingams on the ground. But there are hundreds of ruined lingams in very bad state. You see this lingam, it is inside a ruined temple. It’s bottom half has been cut off manually, somebody used a strong metal tool like a pick axe or a crow bar and just repeatedly kept hitting this, until it became like this. It is a miracle that this lingam is still standing today. This is a thousand year old lingam, such precious ancient artifacts are lying in complete ruins in Cambodia. No one can even approach this lingam because the entrance to the temple itself is ruined. Now, there are not only lingams on the ground in this area, but also many lingams lay buried underground.

I have shown you giant lingams in Cambodia, these lingams are massive, but the lingams they are recently discovering is just mindboggling. Look at this one, this was found recently in the woods, and it is  roughly one thousand years old. What is this structure? It is very likely that this is a yoni or the pedestal for a lingam. See how many people are standing on it, understand the size of this lingam. A giant cylinder would have been placed inside the square hole in the center originally. That lingam would easily stand about 20 feet tall from the ground level.  I have shown you repeatedly that the cylinders were always destroyed by later civilizations. This lingam was also specifically destroyed. Cambodia is unearthing at least one new lingam every month, this lingam was unearthed recently. Cambodians are also unearthing many many Hindu artifacts, this is a turtle, known as Kurma in Sanskrit, this was found just a few weeks ago, buried in dirt.

Going back to the question: why are these lingams and other Hindu artifacts found far away from India? I mean Cambodia and Vietnam, are thousands of miles away from India, these countries are not even sharing their borders with India. So why are these Hindu structures found here? The short answer is, Vietnam and Cambodia were part of the same Hindu civilization during ancient times. This entire area which is now split into many countries like Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand,  Indonesia and Malaysia, they all used to be a Hindu civilization. I found a map which is 150 years old, which shows the extent of Ancient Hindu culture. This was created by an American geographer called Samuel Mitchell. He called this entire area as the Farther India or Hindoostan.  If you look at this, he shows how the Hindu culture extended to almost all of South East Asia. So, this is the reason why  archeologists are unearthing so many Hindu artifacts in this region.

Now, the artifacts I showed you are only samples from this region, I have not even touched some countries, like Malaysia for example. Malaysia has unearthed hundreds of lingams, this was found in Bujang valley, and they also found lots of pedestals or Yoni, most of them are all kept in Museums now, but the cylinder parts are all gone. This is another Hindu pedestal found in Malaysia. There are statues and even portions of temples, like pillars, found underground. Believe it or not, Malaysian archeologists now say they have found the oldest manmade structures in South East Asia dating back to 110 A.D, that is more than 1900 years old. And there lots of  temples lying underground waiting to be uncovered in Malaysia. Malaysian archeologists now want the entire Bujang Valley which stretches for 86 square miles to be designated as a UNESCO world heritage site. Because this entire valley, is probably full of buried lingams and other artifacts.

If you really think about it, this is very confusing, why are we finding so many lingams underground? Even in an ancient Hindu civilizations, it is reasonable only to find a few religious artifacts, but it appears as though everywhere you dig, you find a lingam. Experts also confirm that many times, when locals dig their land and find a lingam, they will quietly destroy it because they don’t want their land taken over by archeology department.

In the country of Indonesia, they were digging for foundation in the middle of a big city, and they found this lingam, it is estimated to be 1000 years old.   Archeologists think that there are possibly more lingams buried underneath this entire region, but they cannot excavate this area, this place has a University and other new structures built here.

The sheer number of lingams excavated from the ground is very odd and I have only shown you only a small fraction of these excavated lingams. If lingams were just religious structures, you should not find it everywhere you dig, you should not find it in these numbers. So why are lingams found everywhere underground? Is it possible that there is some scientific reason why ancient people were using these lingams everywhere?

They found WHAT underground? Strange Ancient Artifacts Unearthed in India| Praveen Mohan |

Hey guys, today we are going to talk about some shocking ancient artifacts  found in India. Let’s watch this clip.  The person who sent me this clip claims that this was found in an archeological site called Keeladi, however I do not think that this was found in that site. Keeladi is a protected archeological site and only archeologists can dig in that site. Just by looking at how hundreds of people are pulling up this ancient statue, we can understand it was found somewhere else, accidentally while digging the ground for house construction or a water well. Most archeological finds are done accidentally by locals, you can see how excited people are. This is definitely an antique statue, probably around a thousand years old.   This statue shows Shiva, in a specific form called Nataraja, and bronze statues of this style mostly belong to the period of Imperial Chola dynasty who ruled about a 1000 years ago.

Ok so you just saw a mesmerizing statue of Shiva buried underground and is being revealed after centuries of burial. But in a city called Nellore, an entire  temple was buried and it has come out last week. You can see all of them wearing masks because of Covid19.  This was an accidental discovery, they were sandmining, they were trying to take the sand for commercial purposes from this area, and they accidentally found a huge temple completely buried. You can see these 2 guys, removing the sand, and you may think this was the ground level. No, these guys are standing almost on top of the temple tower. You can see how they are casually revealing a deity set up on the tower. Where is the temple entrance? It is buried in the sand.  Now they used the giant excavators and they uncovered this entrance. The machine is going in and removing the sand from the original entrance of the temple.

Finally, you can see the ground level of the temple. That’s the entrance to the temple. When we look at the close up of the ground level, you can see the temple is made of bricks and you can see the plastered walls. The walls are relatively untouched and have not undergone much damage. And you can see there are more chambers inside as well, there are more walls inside. Let us go near the entrance and take a peek at what’s inside. Brick walls and brick doorway.   Locals say this is a Shiva temple and they have found a lingam inside. When we look at the close-up of the tower, you can see that it is also built with bricks and has been plastered with lime mortar.

Important archeological finds have been made in Ayodhya, which is the Birthplace of Lord Rama, and also the location of King’s Baburs Mosque known as Babri Masjid. But before we look into this, we are going to look at some fascinating ancient artifacts revealed in a small village called Arasinakere. What they found here is very strange. Two giant monolithic bull statues, the bull, known as Nandhi is the mount of Lord Shiva. And usually, you should just find one Bull, but surprisingly you see a pair of bulls. The bigger one is about 15 ft in length and 12 ft in height, so this is gigantic and the other one is just a little bit smaller. This excavation was also not started by archeology department, the villagers found it, and then they informed the authorities. These bulls are unfinished.  How do I know this, right? Because, look at the eyes, you don’t see the eyeballs, the eyes are not finished. It is a custom in India, to open the eyes at the very last, you finish sculpting everything, and then you carve the eyeballs. This practice is still followed by Hindu sculptors. And look at the texture of the stone surface, plenty of tool marks and polishing has not begun.   It would be a good guess to think that there are giant lingams buried nearby. At least 2 of them. Perhaps this was a manufacturing site for the sculptors, and they could have abandoned it for some reason.

In India, everywhere you dig, you find ancient statues. Now that all of us have cell phones with cameras, more things are coming to light. You see what this is? This is a 5 headed snake, a monolithic stone statue of Naga being excavated from dirt. This was found recently , it happened just a few weeks ago. I have shown you large Naga statues, commonly guarding a lingam.

The next one is Ayodhya, Most Indians know about this, but if you are watching this from outside India, it is a very important site, because this is considered the birthplace of Lord Rama, and it once had a huge temple complex.  The Muslim king Babur captured this site, demolished it and built a mosque on top, roughly 500 years ago. This mosque was demolished by Hindu groups in 1992 because they wanted to rebuild Rama’s Temple. And this was a huge lawsuit which got recently resolved, and the court has given the site to build the Ram Temple.

Now,  recent excavations show a lot of buried ancient artifacts in this site. Many many pillars have been excavated, a 5 foot Lingam has been unearthed, many female dancing figures have been foundd. The main factor here is that many people do not believe that this site originally had an ancient Hindu temple. They believe that King Babur did not demolish any temple and built the mosque on a completely fresh ground,  and it is merely a folklore that it was the birthplace of Lord Rama. Many people still believe that Hindus destroyed the mosque by falsely claiming that there was once a temple here.  However, recent excavations clearly prove that a Hindu temple existed originally. But archeologists had already found hundreds of stone artifacts which clearly establish that there was a huge temple here. For example, they found a giant Amalka. What is an Amalka? If you look at Hindu temples, there is a huge disc right below the kalash, this is called the amalka. They found a giant amalka on site, which clearly proves a temple existed. They have found hundreds of artifacts ,all of them parts of temples, they found crocodile faced water spout, this is called Makara Pranaalay, and actual portions of the temple tower itself were excavated.  My problem is, the Government should release good quality videos and pictures of these excavated artifacts, this is just really bad quality.

Now, I have shown how many ancient Hindu artifacts coming out of the land, but this is not limited to land, they are also mysteriously coming out of water. This lingam started showing itself just a few days ago. It is an amazing sight to see. See how it is covered in moss, but it has been beautifully carved. Locals started to come in large numbers and started worshiping it, because they know that this lingam is only visible very rarely. The water level usually does not get this low to reveal the lingam, and the water immediately started rising again and the lingam was submerged again in just a few hours. Now this is in the very south of India, far away from Ayodhya, but this is also connected to Lord Rama. This city is called Rameswaram, meaning the ‘Lord of Rama’, and locals say all these ancient lingams were actually built by Rama and his wife. It is said that they worshiped these lingams.

And Rameswaram is not the only place where ancient lingams are submerged. There are many places in India, where lingams lie submerged. They only reveal themselves very rarely, when the water level goes to the extreme low level. Only some people get lucky enough to see these lingams, and only very few videos exist, because they go underwater within a few hours.

I hope this was of some value to you, but there is a mystery involved. All these sites are linked somehow to Lord Shiva.  I have shown several artifacts underground and even underwater, but they are lingams, or statues or temples related to Shiva. Even the birthplace of Lord Rama has a 5 foot tall lingam. Why? Think about why Shiva lies buried everywhere?

GIANT SKULLS FOUND in Sri Lanka? Evidence of Ravana | Praveen Mohan

Hey guys, I am driving through remote areas of Sri Lanka to find evidence of Ravana. According to ancient texts, he was a giant who stood more than 10 feet tall and he lived many thousand years ago. I was told that a private collector actually has the Giant Skull of Ravana. Unfortunately, nobody seems to know the exact location of this collector, so I am searching  for this place while driving through so many roads.

As I was about to give up my search, suddenly, by some weird coincidence, I find that house.  Yes, that mysterious looking house which has these giant skulls. No sign boards, nobody in sight, and giant skulls are just put on the front, without any protection. I am immediately thrilled because I see these skulls and I pull up to this house, obviously shocked and eager to see what I am going to find.

Did I just find the ultimate evidence of Giants? In many videos on my channel, I have posted evidence of Giants, especially about Ravana, who was the greatest king of Sri Lanka. Did I just find the real skulls of the ancient Giant race? Or, are these mere models made of clay or some other material?

Let’s go take a closer look. These skulls are not models, they are in fact real skulls. Each of these giant skull belongs to the same species. The skull is very large, you can see a gigantic lower jaw and you can see that the nose is longer than usual. I went around the house, trying to see if anyone was there. I could see more bones on the ground, but no people. This is very very strange. On the other side of the house, there are bones from the body. These are also quite gigantic, much larger than modern day humans. I could see bones of the ribs, twice the size of humans and stacks of bones strewn around on the ground. I could even smell the bones, so these are not fake, they are actual bones. Look at how big each skull is, the giant’s head must have been larger than my entire arm. It means that these giants would have stood at least 10 feet tall.

And then I noticed something really strange, there are 2 eyes on either side, I mean I could see the holes, the eye sockets. But look, there is a third eye. A giant third Eye, in the center of the forehead, not on just one skull, but on every giant skull here. Look at this baby giant skull, even this has a third eye on its forehead.  Today,  some people think that the third eye denotes the pineal gland and all human beings have the power to awaken the third eye by meditation and by other means. However, here, we can see the Giant species had a third eye in the center of the forehead, it was physically there.  What do ancient Hinduism and Buddhism say about the third eye?

It is really interesting because both religions say that their Gods had a third eye. Shiva, is obviously known for his third eye on his forehead,  sometimes even Goddess Kaali is shown with a third eye. But did you know that Buddha is also depicted with a third eye in many statues? In fact many cultures around the world, talk about how all their Gods had third eyes, MesoAmerican Gods had third eyes, even Egyptian gods,  the eye of the Horus, the eye of Ra.. there is even this eye symbol on dollar bills. All this goes back to an ancient civilization which once had giants, in the west they are known as Nephilim. But what about Sri Lanka?

Does it have evidence of Giants in ancient times? Yes, there is a strange mountain top which has solid evidence of Giants. The location is extraordinary, no this is not Sigiriya, this is not the Ravana’s palace, this is a different place is known as Sri Pada, which means ‘Sacred Footprint’. On top of this mountain, there is a temple which does not allow cameras. Inside the temple, there is a large footprint which is protected by monks and heavy security. All Sri Lankans agree that this is an authentic pre-historic giant footprint. Buddhists claim that this is the footprint of Buddha,  Europeans call it the Adam’s peak. They believe that this was the footprint of Adam. But what do Hindus say about this? Hindus say that this was the footprint of Lord Shiva himself.

Local Hindus say that the original name of this site was called ‘Sivanadi Padham’, which means Shiva’s footprint in ancient Tamil language, and they claim that this piece of history is slowly being erased from Sri Lanka. I know some of you will think, well the locals may have made up this name, and some will even think that I am making up this name, to support Hinduism. But I searched for old photos, and I realized that yes, just 10 years ago, they had sign boards on the site, which says Sivanadi Padham or Shiva’s footprint in Tamil, it also says Adam’s Peak in English. But recently, new signboards have  been placed, which completely eliminate all the other names, and now they just claim that this is Buddha’s footprint. I mean this is devastating, because they are removing historical names which have existed for thousands of years. The original name of this mountain was Sivanoli Padha Malai, which roughly means a Mountain that glows because of Shiva’s footprint. Because locals say that a strange glow appears every night in the mountain, because of the sacred herbs dedicated to Shiva. Now whether this Giant footprint belongs to Shiva or Buddha or anybody, I hope they can restore the ancient Tamil names also and keep them side by side. I mean Sri Lanka has a great Buddhist history, but it also has a long Hindu history as well.

Ok, we have seen the Giant footprint, now let’s get back to the giant skulls.  Since the house iss locked and no one is there to explain what these skulls really are, I have to decipher it myself. When I see the back of the skull, I find something strange.  It has a very unique depression at the top center. This is unlike any human or humanoid we have seen. See this, this is the hole for the ear. Also, do you see the teeth on the lower jaw?

There is another isolated  lower jaw, and I could see the teeth on either side, much like the lower jaw of normal humans.  These are the largest teeth in the world, they seem to be bigger than even shark’s teeth. If you see the back of the head,  there is a giant hole.  This is quite intriguing to see. It is very strange because, the position of this hole is very odd. In human skull, this hole is called, the foramen magnum.  This hole is the hole which facilitates the connection between the brain and the spinal cord.  But if this species walked on 2 legs like humans, the spinal cord would be vertical, right, so the hole should have been at the bottom.  But the hole is at the back of the skull, which means the spinal cord was horizontal, so this was an animal, which walked on 4 legs. And what would that giant animal be? Yes, these are elephant skulls. This cavity in the center which looks like the third eye socket is actually the nasal cavity of the elephant.

So some people must have seen these giant skulls while driving around, and then they must have thought that these were Giant humanoid skulls. And this information spreads through word of mouth. So today I failed my quest miserably, but just because I could not find evidence of Giants in Sri Lanka today, it does not mean that Giants did not exist. There is an important principle in archeology : absence of evidence, does not mean evidence of absence.

I have shown you plenty of evidences of ancient giants, some were even confirmed by government archeologists. Nearly 50 giant skeletons were unearthed in one city in the United States, but nothing like that has ever been found in Sri Lanka. But I am hopeful, I am going to continue my search for more evidence of ancient giants. what do you think? Did Ravana exist? Did Giants exist in ancient times? Or were ancient texts merely imaginary stories?

END OF THE WORLD – Part II | Buddhist Prediction about Maitreya | Praveen Mohan

Hey guys, today, let’s go and try to find a specific strange rock in the ancient city of Anuradhapura in Sri Lanka.  I call this the ‘End Of The World Rock’ and some people believe that if this Rock Falls Down, the World will End. Anuradhapura is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, archeologists say the city’s history goes back to 10th Century B.C, and Sri Lanka is well known for its ancient mysteries. In my previous video, I showed you the Hindu belief about the end of the world, but what do Buddhists believe about the end of the world?

Let us go into this fascinating Buddhist temple and see if we can find more.  Look at this huge reclining Buddha, he looks so divine. Look Behind him, there are many monks worshiping him as a God. His pillow is really fancy, it is a cylinder with a Chakra or lotus patterns, it looks like a technical design. Was it a pillow or some kind of a machine, like an arc reactor? What’s even more strange, look at that  strange thing coming out of his head. It is an elongated thing with 5 curved ends. What is that? Is this some advanced device or is there a simpler explanation for this? And then, look at the person standing right next to him. You don’t see it on his head, but look at the 2 Buddha statues on the left side, both these statues have that strange pointy device on their heads. And the normal guy at the end also does not have it. Look at the guys painted on the wall, none of them have that pointed device on their heads. Do you know that many ancient Buddha statues in Asia show him with this elongated thing on his head? What is the secret behind this?

I got blessed by this Buddhist Monk in the temple, he tied a sacred thread on my wrist. It is a common ritual in Buddhist sites. Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism are three great ancient religions which share the same cultural aspects. They have some minor differences, but they come from the same root. Like Hindus, Buddhists also believe that the world will End and a God called Maitreya will arrive on the earth to destroy all evil. Who is this Maitreya? He will be an avatar of Buddha himself.  This is a very similar story to Hinduism which says that Kalki, who is an avatar of Vishnu will arrive during the end of the world.

But Sri Lankan Buddhists give some interesting details about how Maitreya will arrive on earth. They say that, right now, Maitreya lives in a planet called Tushita and he will travel from that planet and reach the earth when the human beings become evil.  But how will he do this interstellar travel? Some believe that this carving in Anuradhapura is a stargate, and it is the portal through which Maitreya could arrive. Not only that, they also believe that many Buddhist monks from earth also traveled to Tushita, to his planet by doing Sadhana or meditation in front of this stargate.

But how can we find out when the end of the world is near?  There is a Rock in Anuradhapura which can foretell the end of the world. You can see stairs set up going between 2 giant rocks on either side, and on top, there is a Gigantic granite rock, it has a unique shape, which is standing with very little support on both sides. How is it even standing for so many centuries without falling down?  I feel strange walking under this rock, it feels like it could drop on me and crush me as I walk under it. From this side, you can see a Buddhist Stupa and some ancient structures, and this is actually one of the entrances to this Ancient Buddhist Site. It looks like the top of a mushroom head from this side. Some people will say this is a natural formation, but it appears to have some tool marks, you can see some it has been shaved off. And then you can see this line, carved on both the rock on the right side as well as the supporting structure on the left side as well. This means that this is not natural, the giant rock was lifted up and placed here.  Is it possible that someone lifted it and placed it on top? When you look on this side, you can also see lime mortar patched on the wall. This means that there was once an ancient gate protecting this entrance. All this indicates that this entrance was made by artificial means, not natural.  Think about how heavy this is, how can we lift it without using machines? Locals not only say that this was set up artificially, but they also say that this is an indicator, and if this rock falls down, the world will end.

So is the world going to end soon? I do have the sacred thread, so I hope it protects me. Recently someone analyzed the Mayan Calendar and claimed that the world will end soon. Will there be no more sunsets to see? Why are so many people making videos about the end of the world, like there is no tomorrow?
