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?

If This Pillar Collapses, World Will End Tomorrow? Ancient Kedareshwar Cave Temple | Praveen Mohan

Hey guys, today we are going to look at a strange temple which can foretell the end of the world. Recently some people have claimed that the Mayan Calendar actually indicates that the world will end tomorrow, on June 21st. Will the world end tomorrow? What does Hinduism say about this?

There is an ancient place called HarishChandraGad, which has many ancient temples and some of the structures are permanently submerged in water. You can see steps going in but you cannot see what is underneath. But the highlight is ,there is a very old cave temple here called Kedareshwar temple. Inside this temple there is a huge lingam which is almost always surrounded by water. This lingam looks small, but it is about 5 feet tall, and the water is waist deep.

But there is something truly miraculous. There are 4 pillars originally built around the lingam, and you can see 3 pillars are broken and are hanging in mid air, these are clearly hanging without any support.  How can a pillar hang in mid-air without any support? How is this possible? If you look closely, it appears that the structure is made out of one solid rock, and all the pillars have been carved out of a single rock, perhaps this is why they are still able to hang even though the bottoms have been destroyed.

But how were the 3 pillars destroyed? According to Locals these were not destroyed by human beings, or even nature.  Only one pillar will collapse every many thousands of years, due to divine intervention. They claim that every time a pillar collapses a Yuga will end. Now what is a Yuga? A Yuga is an Era in Hinduism and there are 4 Yugas mentioned in ancient texts. And we are in the last Yuga now, very near to the end of the world. In the past, every time one of the pillars collapsed, it marked the end of a Yuga. So if this last pillar also collapses, this last Yuga will also end, and the entire world will be destroyed. Now, how will the world end? A God known as Kalki will arrive from the sky and will destroy our already corrupted world.

Of course, modern historians do not agree with this theory at all, and say this structure itself was built only in the 7th century, and claim this is just 1300 years old.  But archeologists have found something shocking, they have found Microlithic artifacts in this area. Now, what is a Microlith? A Microlith is a very small stone tool made by prehistoric people and archeologists now say this place was inhabited by human beings even as far as 35,000 years ago. Their findings prove that Harishchanragad is definitely a very ancient and even prehistoric site, but locals say that this temple is even older than all these dates. And more evidence of even older structures can be found in the nearby hilltop called Kaal Bhairav Pinnacle. Kaal Bhairav itself means The Eternal Time Keeper, I have shown you Kaala or Time, playing a very important part in Hinduism. Perhaps he can tell us when the our time will end.

Will the world really end tomorrow, so we can stop social distancing today? Even if you do believe in the end of the world concept, this pillar is still standing as of today, it has not fallen down. So, the world will go on, but there is a similar belief about a structure in Sri Lanka also, which I will show you tomorrow. That might give us a clue if the world will end soon.

Ancient Carving Shows EARTH is NOT ROUND| Why Hinduism Supports FLAT EARTH Model? | Praveen Mohan

Hey guys, today we are going to find out what ancient Indians thought about the shape of the earth. Did they think the earth was flat? Or did they think the earth was round? First, Let us look at this visual, created according to an ancient Indian text.

This is the flat earth model, it is made of up of 7 concentric oceans and land masses distributed on a flat plane. At the very center, you can see a beautiful  island called Jambudweep, and you can see a golden mountain rising up like a cylinder, resembling the axis pole. So the flat disk is made of land and water, and at the end of this disk, there are large mountains surrounding this flat earth. This is a very interesting model, to see this giant wall surrounding the edge of the flat earth, because this is how the new flat earth model looks. According to Flat earth supporters, the earth looks like a flat disc, and its edges are protected by a giant arctic wall made of ice. There are photos of these ice walls on the internet. The resemblance between the new model and the ancient Indian model is uncanny, even though the ancient text which talks about this is at least 1000 years old. I could not find the original source for this animation, because this was sent via email, and I would gladly give credit for the original creator, so email me if this is your video.

There is another fascinating detail in this model, it shows the Sun and Moon moving around in the sky, in chariots, this is also very interesting, because this is the same detail in the modern flat earth model as well. Of course, without the chariots and horses. According to modern flat earth theory, the earth is stationary and the Sun and Moon are moving around it. In ancient India, several texts and stories talk about the flat earth model.

Now, why does Hinduism have to talk about the shape of the earth? Because there is a particular story where Lord Vishnu takes the form of a giant wild boar and he lifts up the earth. This is a very popular story, and it is carved in many ancient temples. We are actually quite lucky to have this Hindu Story, because it helps us understand what the ancient builders thought about the shape of the earth. Because of this story, the sculptors carved the earth, in many many ancient temples, and I always try to see how the earth looks, in the point of view of ancient sculptors. And I have also been disappointed many times because, the earth is mostly shown as a woman. So you cannot tell if the sculptor thought of the earth as flat or round. The Boar here is Lord Vishnu and he is lifting up the earth, the earth is called Bhu in Sanskrit. In Mahabalipuram, which is a very ancient site, Vishnu is shown holding the earth in his arms, the earth is shown as a young girl. This type of holding the earth in his hands is also a very popular depiction. Again, this does not tell us if the ancient sculptor thought of the earth as flat or round

So does Hinduism subscribe to the Flat Earth Theory? Before going into this, we have to look at another fancy theory that existed in Ancient India: Concave Earth theory. In this theory, some ancient Hindus thought that the earth looked like a hollow bowl. It is a very interesting view, that the earth is visualized as a concave structure. This is an ancient statue and you can see this figure holding a concave bowl like thing in his hands. Experts are not sure if this represents Vishnu, some say this is the Ape God Hanuman, but there are also other depictions which show the concave earth model.

I have shown you 2 theories from Ancient India, one is the flat earth and the other is the concave earth model. Why do we see these 2 models in ancient India? Because it is very hard to come to terms with  the globe earth model. Let’s face it, the first time someone told you the earth was like a ball, your first question was, Why are we not falling down? How do you walk on the curved surface of a ball, why don’t we see the curve at all?

Let me ask you this: When you were a kid did you intuitively understand and accept when someone told you the earth was round?  For me, personally, I remember it was impossible to understand the round earth theory for many years. When you hear that the earth is not only round, but is also spinning at an insane speed, we don’t feel like we are moving at all.

So what did the ancient Hindus really believe? The most important point to remember is that, there was more freedom of speech in ancient India than what we have now. There were several schools of thought and you could believe in whatever you wanted. Today if somebody says the earth is flat then everybody wants to ridicule him or try to convince him with various evidences. But ancient India had much more freedom of speech, you could come up with any theory, and even if your theory flies in the face of the established theory, you were free to hold your ideas. The second most important thing was that Hinduism did not have one central authority at any given time. So, there was no real head of the religion, in fact Hinduism was just a way of life, it was just a civilization, which had multiple heads and tails, and of course this is one of the reasons why no one could completely destroy the religion.. Because it was like a thousand headed Naga.

Now, let us look at the round earth model in Ancient Hinduism.  Here you can see Vishnu as a boar, and you can see the earth right here, depicted as a sphere, standing on an axis, pretty much like a modern day globe. Here is another one, this is also an ancient carving, and you can see the spherical earth floating right next to the boar. In fact, there are many carvings which do show the earth as round. So it is clear that Hindus did have a round earth model as well. This is why the earth was commonly called ‘Bhugola’ which means Round Earth in Sanskrit.

But is the earth really round? Like a ball? No it is not, the earth is not round, it is not like a ball at all. About 300 years ago, Isaac Newton first proposed that the Earth was not perfectly round. Instead, he suggested it was an oblate spheroid. What is an oblate spheroid? It is like a ball that is squashed at its poles and swollen at the equator. So the earth is actually like an oval shaped structure, like an egg, but here is the twist, Newton was not the first person to understand this.

Look at this carving in India, this is a 750 year old carving found in Somnathpur temple and it shows the accurate oblate spheroid shape. The statue is unmistakable, this is Lord Vishnu in the form of a boar, and he is holding the earth, and the earth is not even shown as a sphere, it is shown as an oval. Now, remember, in modern science, North is shown pointing up, but in Hinduism, North is usually shown in the right side, which means the North-South axis is shown horizontally. So this carving, accurately shows how the earth is a little bit flattened at the poles and swollen at the Equator. And yes, archeologists do confirm that this statue was carved 750 years ago. How is this possible? Think about this, how did a sculptor, understand the level of astronomy and physics of a genius like Isaac Newton, 400 years before Newton?

The sculptor probably read an ancient text called Markandeya Purana. And this text, which is about 1500 years old, tells us that the earth is not a perfect sphere and it is flattened at the poles and bulging at the equator. Which means someone figured this out 1200 years before Isaac Newton discovered this. This is mind boggling!

Now why did ancient Indians have so many theories side by side, even though these theories completely contradict one another? Because in order for a society to advance rapidly, all theories must be examined and re-examined. I mean this video by itself, shows you some alternate view, it shows alternate history, that the oval shape of the earth was not first discovered by Isaac Newton, it was known before him, and we even have archeological evidence to prove this as a fact. But because this carving is found in India, nobody is talking about this, and I think I am the first person to show you that this carving shows the oblate spheroid theory before Newton proposed it. But this is alternate history, okay? And of course some people will call it fake, even though I am showing you this evidence right in front of you.

And 100 miles from this temple, there is another temple called Hoysaleswara temple, it shows a figure holding a telescope, looking into the sky, with one eye closed and the other eye looking through the device. I mean it is obviously a telescope. Archeologists confirm that this was carved about 900 years ago, but in history books, and even science books, we read that Galileo and Lippershey invented the telescope just 400 years ago. So right now, this carving is a part of alternate history, because it goes against the mainstream history which claims that the telescope was invented 400 years ago. But someday, this evidence will be taken into account, and then it will become mainstream theory. So a free society, must allow all alternate theories freely, in order to reach the ultimate truth.

Now, is Praveen Mohan the greatest alternate theorist? Absolutely not. I know YouTube deletes my videos, it demonetizes my videos. It will probably not show you this video on your feed, because it thinks this video is also a conspiracy theory. But my work is nothing when compared to the work of a great alternate theorist. You know who I am talking about? It was Galileo.  Let us go back 400 years and look at the life of Galileo in Europe. Galileo publishes a crazy alternate theory at that time. He claims that the earth is round, it moves around the sun, and the sun is the center of the Solar system. I mean this is mainstream science now, but at that time it was a huge alternate theory. You know what happened to him when he published this theory? The authorities, put him in house arrest for the rest of his life, he basically could not go out of his house for 10 years and he died in his house. And then, the authorities did something even more vicious, they tried their best to suppress all his findings, and his books were banned, and no one was allowed to talk about his alternate theory. This is really scary, but history is repeating itself.

400 years later, the tables have turned, literally the exact opposite is happening. Galileo’s alternate theory has become mainstream now, and the flat earth has become the alternate theory, but Round Earth Theorists, are not only ridiculing the Flat Earth Theorists, but they are actually trying to suppress information about Flat Earth Theory.

For example, YouTube has put in an algorithm to suppress Flat Earth videos. This is a screenshot from the official YouTube blog. Try searching for Flat Earth videos, YouTube will not show you, the people who actually talk about Flat Earth, it will show you videos which oppose the flat earth theory. And this is very interesting to watch, how Social Media like YouTube and even the scientific community suppresses Flat Earth Theorists with an iron fist.

And we can understand something from this, we have not changed much in the last 400 years. In a truly free society, people must be allowed to examine and re-examine anything they want. You can disagree with them, but if you are going to suppress the alternate point of view, that is not only wrong, that is barbaric. And I think this is the big difference between us and Ancient Indians, they were just more civilized than us, and anybody was free to believe anything.

Why is Flat Earth theory so popular, right? Because you cannot demonstrate this easily to make me understand that the earth is round. The shape of the earth is a unique issue, let’s take some other problem that we don’t understand intuitively. Let’s say someone claims that white light is not made of different colors, you can literally do a  demonstration and prove it to them, right in front of their eyes.

But you cannot easily demonstrate and prove the shape of the earth, you can infer this indirectly from some experiments, or you have to choose to believe the scientists. So, that is exactly what we do today, most of us, just choose to believe scientists. I have not physically traveled to space and seen the earth’s surface from the space, I have only seen videos given by the scientists. So I believe that the earth is round, even though I have never seen it with my own eyes. So you too have a choice of believing the scientists or not believing them, but a free society must allow free thinking. It can teach us how to think,  but it cannot limit information and it cannot tell us what to think.

Ravana’s Giant Feet Found in Sri Lanka? Sigiriya’s Reptilian Secret | Praveen Mohan

Hey guys, today we are going to look at a very strange structure known as Lion’s Paws in Sigiriya. Sigiriya is a giant rock with a flat top which is also known as Ravana’s Palace, located in Sri Lanka.
When you start climbing Sigiriya, it is usually a series of stairs with almost no place to rest. But there is one flat area in between where people rest half way before going to the top. This is a very interesting place because it shows something bizarre. Two giant paws of a strange animal. These are giant feet, I have not seen anything like this before, I mean this is huge, you can see how small I look when compared to it. Each paw is at least 10 feet tall and 10 feet wide. I mean it is impossible not to think of the giant legs of the Sphinx at the great pyramid of Giza. What’s even more strange, Sri Lankan’s do refer to this as Lion’s Paws or Lion Gate which is similar to the modern Egyptians’ claim that Sphinx is also part lion.
But are these really lion’s paws? Look at the large nails, it is quite clear that this is not human, it looks like the claws of a fierce animal, the details are fantastic. There are 2 curves made where the nails meet the flesh at the end. If you look carefully, there is a little toe as well. So there are three bigger toes and one small toe in each leg.
In Sri Lanka, they are popularly known as lion’s paws or lion entrance because many experts claim that these toes belong to a lion. But this is absolutely wrong, these are not lions paws. Lions do not have 4 toes, they have 5 toes, other similar mammals like tigers also have 5 toes, not 4 toes. The ancient builders clearly showed 3 large toes, and a small, rudimentary toe or a pinky toe. So what animal do these toes belong to?
Ancient reptiles had 4 toes, they mostly had 3 large toes and one small toe. Let’s take dinosaurs for example, you are looking at the toes of T Rex. He has 4 toes, 3 large ones and one tiny one, look at the similarity. Pay attention to the rough scales on his ankle. The ancient builders have even tried to show the scales in Sigiriya, look at the wavy lines made on the structures as well, these represent scales. This definitely represents an ancient reptile. What is that powerful reptile? None other than Ravana himself.
Now Ravana is said to be the greatest King of Sri Lanka, so great that Sri Lanka’s first satellite was named Ravana. Sigiriya is also known as Ravana’s palace. But, how can Ravana be a reptilian? How can he have legs like this? But when we look at ancient texts, strange details start to appear.
First, Ravana was not fully human, only his father was human. His mother was a completely different species, perhaps a reptilian. When Ravana was born he had the qualities of a hybrid species, in the western world, these hybrids are called Nephilim, in some ways he was human, in other ways he was not. For example, it is well known that he was a giant, he was about 10 feet tall. But Ravana showed other reptilian characteristics, he was capable of Shape shifting, he could modify his appearance and deceive others, he could also become invisible by blending with the environment, like a modern day chameleon. The Thai text Ramakien mentions that Ravana’s skin was Green, like a chameleon. Human skin cannot be green, he definitely had reptilian blood in him. In Sri Lanka, several reptiles are named after Ravana. For example, this snake is called Ravanage Medilla and even has the scientific name Aspidura Ravanai, after King Ravana because of his reptilian descent.
During my travels in Sri Lanka, I saw many snake charmers who consider themselves as descendants of Ravana, and they say Ravana was born with Naga ancestry. Today, we think the word Naga only means snake, but these charmers say that their original ancestors were humanoid with 2 feet and 2 arms, but also had strange powers like shape shifting and can even become invisible. The Nagas simply used Cobra as their symbol, because the Cobra was an easily recognizable reptile due to its inflating or flaring hood. They believe that their reptilian ancestors disappeared underground and promised to return some day. Initially I thought this was just folklore, but it is recorded both in Tamil texts and Sinhala texts that Nagas were the original inhabitants of Sri Lanka. This is why, during ancient times, Sri Lanka was sometimes referred to as Nagadeepa and ancient Greeks also called it Nagadibois.
In Sigiriya, there is more evidence related to reptilians, there is an unbelievable structure known as Cobra Hood Cave. This is fantastic, because it is a giant rock which is shaped like a cobra with its inflated hood. It is impossible to have this kind of a curve naturally. But this is not the only curve, it also has yet another curve at the bottom. In fact, no one knows how it is still standing, if you look at the center of gravity this rock, it should have fallen down but amazingly it is still standing, as though by using some anti-gravity technique. Of course, you may think this is all completely natural, and locals just gave a name for this. But that’s not true, because if you look carefully you can see the remains of some ancient paintings on this cobra cave. This is very tall guys, so I have tried my best with my zoom camera, I can tell these are amazing paintings but I cannot understand what they are showing, because most of them are destroyed. While locals maintain that this was a giant Naga idol worshiped by Ravana, archeologists completely deny that Ravana ever existed, and they maintain that this place was used by a king called Kashyapa around 500 A.D. But they also found an inscription dated much before his time, around 2nd century B.C, which says that the cobra hood rock originally belonged to a king called ‘Naguliya’. So we do have strong evidence of Naga or reptilian connection in the Sigiriya Complex itself.
Now, even if you doubt that Ravana ever existed, if he had reptilian features and you classify all ancient texts as mere mythology, you still have to agree that may be human sculptors imagined Ravana’s feet and depicted them here, because these are definitely not Lion’s paws or Tiger’s paws or something like that. See the thing is, Sigiriya is the most underrated ancient site in the world, when you explore this place, you realize that reality can surpass your imagination. And as extraordinary as this place is, it has never been studied properly by experts.
For example, some claim these paws are made of granite. But it cannot be, it is made of simpler materials like brick and clay and then coated with lime mortar, this is why it looks white. If you observe carefully, you can see the bricks at the base, revealing themselves. Similarly archeologists are of the opinion that this was built in 5th century A.D, roughly about 1600 years ago. That is quite ancient, but in reality, these structures could be much much older, taking us back to the time of Ravana’s rule in Sri Lanka. Like this, there are many many mysteries hidden in Sigiriya.
So what do you think? Are these Ravana’s feet? Or are these Lion’s Paws? Was Sigiriya really Ravana’s Palace?

AUM = INFINITY? Built a MANTRASCOPE to SEE Ancient Sounds! Praveen Mohan

Hey guys, is it possible to see Mantras? What is a Mantra? Mantras are sacred sounds mentioned in Ancient Hindu Texts and even today, thousands and thousands of people chant these mantras during meditation, rituals etc. But is it possible to visually see how these Mantras look?

So my friend and I have been trying to visualize the Mantras and we have built this device and let me show you what this is. It is basically a nice vibrating piece of latex or rubber stretched over the mouth of a long cylinder, and we have put a simple mirror in the center of the latex in front of it. This cylinder is hollow , there is nothing inside, when you look at it from the other side. Now here is a laser pointer and I am going to adjust the laser so that the laser light falls exactly on the center of the mirror. The light from the laser pointer starts here, hits the mirror and is now reflected on to the wall on the opposite side, ok? The light just looks like a dot on the wall, because the latex and the mirror are stationary, they are not  moving right?

Now, If make a sound through this cylinder, for example I chant a Mantra, watch what happens to the light pattern on the wall. So, let’s try some Ancient Mantra through this device and see how this Mantra looks visually, ok? The mantra I am going to try now is called Shreem, this is the Mantra  of Goddess Lakshmi, ok? So let me try chanting the Mantra: Shreem. Shreem. Shreem. Shreem. Shreem.

Ok, you are  looking at the visual representation of the Mantra, I believe this is the first time we are visually seeing how ancient Mantras really look. And this is very very interesting, I am turning off all the lights and showing it to you, because you can see how the Shreem Mantra looks in Close Up.

And this is very very interesting to watch, but Because it is not a static frequency, I am  basically chanting a mantra which has a beginning and ending, you can see that the pattern appear for a second and then disappear when the Mantra ends, right? So it is very hard to catch it because it disappears before you can fully grasp it. Now, we are actually looking at the visual representation of the Mantra, ok? How is this happening?

When I chant a mantra through this cylinder, the Sound waves move through the air onto this flexible solid which also picks up the waves. Now I have transferred the sound from air to solid medium, because I can see the solid, unlike the air, but I still can’t see it clearly. So I have attached this mirror to the flexible latex, so the mirror will also vibrate at the same frequency. Now, the light that’s reflected from the mirror will also change because of the sound waves.  So the sound waves or frequency sent through the cylinder can be seen visually on the wall.

Now, I am going to test the sound of Aum Mantra on this device, but before that, Why did I even think of building this Mantrascope? Why am I testing these Mantras? What is a Mantra? A Mantra means uncorrupted or unpolluted sound in its purest form. Mantras are usually chanted 108 times to gain several advantages, there is a specific type of Mantra called Beej Mantras or Seed Mantras, they are considered the seeds of everything. You chant them 108 times, to gain physical strength, to attain a meditative state of mind, and gain a lot of other physical or spiritual advantages.

What is the difference between these Seed Mantras and other sounds? These Mantras are special, vibrating sounds beyond human interpretation, they are purely sounds without any meanings. Now, what do I mean by this?

I am talking to you, right now, these are all sounds I am making with my vocal cords and you are able to understanding the meaning of it. Right now, you are only focusing on understanding the meaning of what I am saying. Your mind is not paying attention to the sound itself, because it is busy translating the sounds into meanings.  Now suddenly if I say ‘KLEEM SHREEM HROUNG’ there is a complete blank in your mind.  Your mind is just puzzled. Because there is no meaning for these sounds at all. You no longer look at the meaning itself, and you have to absorb the Sound as it is. And this is the main effect of Seed Mantra, using the sound as it is, not the meaning, but the sound itself is used for the benefit of your mind, your body and for many other benefits. The field of Mantra is a very important scientific study done by ancient Indians, they were able to document the effect of pure sounds on the body, the mind and nature itself.

And of course you can ask, is this really science, isn’t this some fuzzy religious theory? Do we have actual scientific evidence that sounds alter your mind and body? I think it is fairly easy to understand that sounds alter your state of mind, this is why we love music, and you also listen to music in a totally different language which you don’t understand the meaning of the words . Someone plays the violin a certain way and you will automatically go back to your past and start thinking of all the mistakes you made. If a bird gives out a fabulous mating call, you become romantic, even though you are not a bird. So it is not hard to understand that sounds alter your state of mind.  But do sounds really have an effect on your body?

In 1957, a Russian Born Scientist by the name of Vladimir Gavreau was working in France. As he and his team mates were working in a lab in the city of Marseille, all of them, started to get fever, headaches and nausea and they vomited multiple times a day, sparking the fear that they had all caught an infectious disease. But when everybody went home and stayed home, the mysterious illness went away and everyone became healthy. But then they all returned back to this lab and they all got sick again. This was a physics labs, there were no chemicals or live animals or something like that. So they realized something was going on in that building that was making them sick, and they eventually found out that large cooling fans were newly installed and they were generating low-frequency sound waves, which was making everyone sick. When they got rid of the fans, everyone became normal.

Now, Vladimir became so intrigued by this event that sounds can affect your body, he invented the very first sonic weapon. A weapon that creates sound to kill people. It was called ‘Canon Sonique’ and the French Military at that time tried to use it, unsuccessfully, because they could not find out a way to focus these sound waves only on their enemies. So the people operating this device could also die, just like their enemies, because the sound waves travel everywhere. Wikipedia says Vladimir patented his prototype, and we can still find it in the French Patent Office. Ok so, it is a scientific fact that sounds can alter your body… and mind, it is not a myth. Ancient Hindus used the same concept and created Mantras. By chanting certain sounds in certain frequencies  you can alter the mind, and body.

Now let us try Aum and see how it visually looks ok? Because Aum is considered the Mantra of all Mantras. It is considered the frequency of all beginnings and ends. So let me just chant the Aum Mantra through this cylinder and see what happens, let’s find out.

Aum. Aum. I can see something like an infinity guys..I don’t know. I could see..a sign like an infinity…which is weird.Aum…You see this, this looks like Infinity or like ..sometimes even DNA strand…that’s odd.

Let me turn off the lights and I am gonna see if we can get a better look at this, because this is really interesting. Aum..Aum..So it is pretty interesting guys, when I chant the Aum Mantra, I saw something like an infinity, especially when I turned off all the lights, I could see it better. It looked like Infinity sometimes even may be three loops .. looks like a DNA strand or something like that. But then when I chanted more and more, there was also a weird vibration. It is just a sort of.. a reverberation. So let me go to the computer and let’s see how everything looks when we slow it down, ok?

Aum..Aum.

So, I slowed this footage down and you can tell that an interesting infinity symbol shows up when I chant  Aum.  Is this just a coincidence? I don’t know. It is really weird because according to Ancient Hinduism, Aum is the Sound of Infinity and Beyond. This is why Aum is called Pranava Mantra or the Primordial Mantra or the Sound of the Universe. Please let me know what you think about why Aum looks like Infinity, is there a connection or is it just a bizarre coincidence?

I have not finished designing this Mantrascope, I don’t like the fact that these patterns disappear immediately and we have to go to the computer every time and slow it down to see how it looks. So we are gonna make some more changes to it, and hopefully I can show an improved version soon. Now, this device was made with the help of people like you who support me. After my YouTube Channel almost got banned, a lot of people went to my Patreon page and started donating money, and we were able to build this Mantrascope so fast, even during this lockdown, because of these donations that you guys gave me.  So, I really appreciate your help and support, and I do hope to build a lot more new things related to Ancient Technology.
