Ancient Underground Medicine – The Secret Key of Siddhars ?

Hey guys, today we are going to see a very strange ancient temple in South India. The temple houses something very unique. Some people think this is an underground well. Some people think there is something hidden underground inside the structure. From the air, on the eastern side of the temple complex, we can see a mysterious Keyhole shaped structure. There is a long rectangular structure and there is a circle on one end. This looks very similar to a modern day key hole. What is this structure? and why is the circle, covered with a metal fence?

When I walked towards the temple entrance, my initial thought is that, this structure does not look like a Hindu temple at all. It is a square structure made of granite without the typical pyramid shaped towers. There is something strange about this place which needs to be investigated. When I entered the temple complex, I saw several sick people praying inside, as they believe they could be healed by the energy from this temple.

When I walked towards the underground structure, I was surprised to see that not only was the circular part of the structure fenced, even the rectangular structure has a metal gate, and it is also locked! When I peeked through, I could see there are steps going inside, probably about 100 feet below ground level. Where do the steps lead? What will I find? More importantly, I was told the keeper who has the key for this gate, has left for the day, so it is impossible to access this.

Inside the structure, there are solid granite steps which are many centuries old. The walls have been renovated with bricks and mortar recently.  There are dried leaves and trash on these steps, no one has used them in many months. What is on the other end? Will it lead me to an underground tunnel which has ancient secrets? There is also an arch on top, which probably housed some kind of an idol or even a device. As I went deeper, I could finally see something on the surface. It is water. My camera is messing up because of low light. When I finally reached the end, I could see a diamond shape cut inside a square. It is filled with water. There is a large cylindrical structure built around it which goes all the way to the top, to the ground level. Is this merely a water well? If so, why the complicated Key hole structure? Even more importantly, what is the need to put gates and locks on all sides, so no one can access it? There is some strange energy in the waters, it feels amazing to be here. There is definitely something which we do not understand.

To understand this better, I decided to learn more about the temple.  When I spoke to the locals, I realized that this complex was originally, not built as a temple at all. It was a secret place where the general public was not allowed to enter. This was a place where only Siddhars could enter and work in complete secrecy.  Siddhars are saints, who invented various medicines and practiced alchemy. This was the place where medicines and strange chemicals were prepared and people with serious diseases were cured. This is why it does not have the regular look of a Hindu temple. Only in the last few hundred years, the site has been opened to the general population, and has been turned into a regular temple.

It is known as Marundheeswarar temple which literally means ‘Temple of Divine Medicine’. But there is something much more interesting than this. The temple has a flag post which is said to emit some kind of mysterious radiation. At the base of the post, there is a small rectangular pit, which is filled with a type of dust. This soil or dust is considered medicine, a curative powder which can heal many diseases. People who visit the temple, take the dust home. Farmers take some of this before they start farming and put it in their farmland for bigger and better yields.

All this sounds amazing, but how can soil or dust in this site, magically acquire medicinal properties? I mean what did the Siddhars do here? Nearby, there is a small cemetery where various Siddhars are buried. This place is considered a spiritual site and many people come here and perform meditation. There are many Siddhars who lived here as we are able to see many of their tombs. The Siddhars have a tradition of apprenticeship and they were taught how to mix various herbs and chemicals to create different compounds.

Originally, the Siddhars placed a large cylinder called ‘Oushadha Lingam’ inside the underground structure, right in the middle of the water. This cylindrical lingam was not made of stone, but was made of 9 types of chemicals which are poisonous if consumed individually, but when fused together, have great healing properties. The chemicals which made up the lingam would very slowly dissolve in the water, making the water have healing properties. This is why this entire structure is known as ‘Oushadha Theertham’ which means ‘Healing Waters’. Siddhars would take this water every day, and pour it into the rectangular pit, and the wet soil would retain the medicinal properties. So, this is the actual science behind how the Siddhars magically turned soil into medicine. The Siddhars even took patients who were in serious condition, into the underground keyhole and even bathed them in this water. Of course the Lingam itself has vanished, either it collapsed due to centuries of dissolving in water, or people stole it for personal greed, no one knows.

And remember, I initially questioned about the strange shape of the underground structure. Why is it designed like a Keyhole? Now, we can understand why it was designed like this. If there was a large cylinder which acted as a lingam, this entire Key hole shape was designed as a Yoni. In Hinduism, the lingam, the cylinder, is always complemented with a groove around it. If you look at any lingam and Yoni from top, you will see the same shape, it will look like a Key hole.

Finally, why is this underground structure kept under lock and key? I mean, since the lingam is gone, why is everyone prohibited from accessing it? Locals claim that while this water acts as medicine to sick people, it is also dangerous for healthy people. It is reported that the water here is unusually heavy and normal people get really sick if they drink it. Locals say that goats or cows may enter this well and drink this water and end up with serious ailments because the water is too heavy. This is why it is locked on all sides. Water becoming heavy? This looks like mumbo jumbo, but when I researched this I found something unbelievable.

Normal water is H2O, but there is something called heavy water which is D2O also known as Deuterium oxide. Normal hydrogen atom is just made of one proton and one electron, but in heavy water, there is a neutron that gets added to it, making it twice as heavy. Today, we are able to produce heavy water in labs. But if you look at the effects of heavy water, you will be shocked because they are telling us the same effects as what the locals here are talking about.  If a person is healthy and consumes heavy water, he will become sick. However, the reverse is also true. Scientists have now discovered that, for people with serious illnesses such as cancers, consuming deuterium actually heals them. Perhaps we could find more if we dive into the water, perhaps the lingam is still in there?

5000 Year Old MAGIC Jar Unearthed in India? Defies Law of Gravity?

Hey guys, today we are going to look at an extraordinary artifact known as “Magic Krishna” , this is currently displayed at the Chennai Museum in India. This weird looking item is about 300 years old, and it looks like it is made of plastic, but is made completely out of clay. The specialty of this container is that, it defies the law of gravity and the laws of physics. Now, I am going to demonstrate how this jar defies the laws of nature. On the bottom, we can clearly see that there is a hole right at the center and if you pour water on the top, the water should normally drain through the bottom hole. However, when we pour water at the top, you can see that the water does not leak through the bottom hole. Instead, the water level slowly rises as you pour more water, and once the water touches the feet of this idol, the water somehow magically starts draining through the bottom hole.

But it does not stop, the entire water completely drains out of the container. This does not make any sense at all, this defies the laws of nature. Normally, when there is a hole at the bottom, the water should begin draining immediately as we pour water on the top. This will happen due to gravity, but this is an anti-gravity jar, so the water doesn’t come out through the hole. And here is the second problem: the water doesn’t drain even when we fill it halfway, and it appears as though it begins draining as we add more and more weight of water. If this is the case, the hole must stop draining as the water comes down to half level. We expect that only a certain amount of water would drain.
But somehow, when the water touches the idol’s feet, the water begins draining and it drains out everything completely. How does this happen? Is this some kind of a magic jar? Is this why it is safely kept behind glass doors in a Museum? Yes, it is in fact a Magic Jar, and this is the idol of Lord Krishna, a Magical Indian God. Archeologists confirm that this is a rare artifact, and only one such container exists in all of India.

In ancient times, magic jars like these were used in many temples and an interesting story was told while giving a demonstration and I am going to tell you that story now. About 5000 years ago, Lord Krishna was born, and his uncle wanted to kill him immediately. So in an attempt to save his life, baby Krishna was secretly taken away by his father, who decided to carry him across the river Yamuna. As his father was crossing the river, the water level began rising. His Father begged the river to subside, but the water level kept on rising. But when the river Yamuna finally touched Lord Krishna’s feet, it completely drained out and became dry, so the Father and Son could cross the river safely. The river Yamuna later revealed that it wanted to desperately touch Lord Krishna’s feet and get his blessings. So, this is why the water level keeps rising until it touches Krishna’s feet and once it touches his feet, everything will drain out.

So, how does it really work? I decided to recreate this magic jar and here you can see that I have built a rectangular tank and at the bottom, there is a hole. On the top, I have built a similar cylindrical structure and I have glued an idol of Lord Krishna, hoping that the water will behave similarly. And as I keep pouring water, the water does not drain through the bottom hole, because water naturally wants to touch Krishna’s feet but watch carefully when the water touches Lord Krishna’s feet, all the water begins magically draining out, leaving the container empty. Now, the key to this is hidden underneath this cylinder, it does not have a complex valve system or anything like that, all we need is a U-tube or a U-bend set up inside the container. One of the bends fits into the hole , and the other leg is set up very close to the floor of the tank. Now, if I pour water, nothing happens until the water touches the bend, water will not drain through the bottom hole. But once that level is reached, which is where the Krishna’s feet would be strategically placed, the water will begin draining, but it won’t stop until everything gets completely drained out. Scientists call this a Siphon.

What you saw in the museum was only about 300 years old, but it is believed that the very first magic jar with the same principle was created at the time of Krishna, who lived about 5000 years ago. Ancient India is known for making these anti-gravity or magic containers – in a previous video I showed you another jar which defies the law of gravity, it is known as Karigiri Jar. It does not have a mouth but it has holes on both top and bottom, but the water does not come out through the top or bottom holes, you can only get the water out through the designated spout.

In the western world, a container similar to the ‘Magic Krishna’ was designed about 2500 years ago, by Pythagoras. Yes, this is the same Pythagoras, the guy who proved that the sum of the squares of 2 sides is equal to the square of the hypotenuse. This is called a Pythagoras Cup. I have made a simple model of this using a plastic cup and a straw. He used these cups to tell a completely different story. Pythagoras would give these empty cups to his friends and they could all pour wine and drink from these cups. However, if someone got too greedy and decided to completely fill the cup, the entire cup would become empty. So, the moral of the Pythagoras’s cup was not to be greedy, and always try to keep a fair share and not get too much. If you try to get everything, you will end up getting nothing. And you can also simply rename this as Magic Krishna as well, if we conceal the straw and place an idol of Krishna here, it will not drain the liquid until it reaches a certain height… And once it reaches a certain height, which would be the same spot where Krishna’s feet would be set up, all the liquid will drain out completely.
I have heard a slightly different Hindu Story, which will give you a different result in the Magic Krishna jar. While river Yamuna is considered a devotee of Lord Krishna, the river Ganga is said to be a devotee of Lord Shiva. And Yamuna is represented by water, but Ganga is actually represented by Mercury, liquid mercury. In Indian alchemy, mercury is considered as Lord Shiva’s body fluid. And if we mix Ganga and Yamuna in this container, will it still give us the same output? If I pour mercury and water side by side, can Krishna do his magic? Ganga is considered as the holiest river, and also has magical properties and Ganga only worships Shiva, and not Krishna. So, when we add Ganga or mercury along with Water, we can see that the ‘Magic Krishna’ does not work. Even though we have filled this container up, the mercury and water are not draining. Why?

Because Yamuna or Water does not have enough power to move Ganga or mercury, up the siphon. Of course Ganga is the heaviest of all rivers, I mean mercury is the heaviest of all liquids. And the only way to make this work with mercury is by adding pure mercury, all the way to the top. And of course, you can see how ancient Hindus were talking about science purely using symbolic names. It is very fascinating to see that ancient Indians understood the laws of physics, gravity and siphon and they always had a strange way of mixing religion and science. Remember I showed you the inverted shadow of a tower in a temple at Hampi, which is also based on laws of physics. India is full of these weird artifacts and carvings which use a combination of religion and science to create quote on quote “Magic”.
