Legendary and Mythical Cities
And the Kalachakra Mandala
Temple of Candi Sukuh Indonesia
We have many legends and stories about mythical cities of the past. At one time before diminished to mythical status, they were legends, and prior to that, a known fact. Sometime in the distant future, the existence of New York, will be a myth.
The Aztec Legend of Aztlan, Plato’s Mythical Atlan-tis, The Roman Jewish Calalus, the Spanish Kingdom of Cibola and the 7 cities around Lake Copalla, the Tibetan, Hindu Mystical 7 kindoms of Shambhala, (Shem Bahla) or (Shebah), the Welsh Annwn and King Arthur’s Camelot in the land of Avalon and many others such as King Solomon’s mines in the land of Ophir and Moses’s Promised Land where in he sent scouts who brought back Pomegranate as evidence of having found it, Why Pomegranate? We’ll come back to that. Most of the places mentioned are located on some island surrounded by an ocean or vast lake and in some accounts believed to have disappeared by sinking, and or associated with 7 peaks or 7 caves etc…
Is it possible that this place described above could all be one and the same place? Shambhala has been reduced to Mythical status simply because it cannot be found by the westerner’s views of where it should be according to them, perhaps they should have looked in their own back yard.
Let’s not overlook the implications of pronunciation differences, Aztlan, How the Aztec pronounced it, Avalon, how King Arthur pronounced it and Atlan-tis, is how Plato pronounced this now regarded “fictional” place adding the suffix tis meaning from or of.
Knowing without a doubt due to the many evidences I have discovered that the first Americans were without a doubt Oriental or Asian, notice I did NOT say Chinese as they did not yet exist, I find myself studying the Caves of Ajanta and the Buddhist related religions even more so.
While comparing the many photographic evidences of the Caves of Ajanta, for the purpose of comparing to descriptions of the underground city supposedly found in the Grand Canyon, I happened upon one particular painting found in the caves in which I found startling. Startling simply because it jumped out at me, perhaps you to will see it and maybe you won’t.
From the caves of Ajanta
One of the earliest renditions of what is thought to be Gautama Buddha
Startling? Why you ask… We’ll get to that shortly. In searching the images of the Ajanta cave in which I find the image above and from the many sites which display this photo, I can’t seem to find one that knows for sure who this is a representation of. However, researching the Mythical place of Shambhala (A Pure Land) I find the following image as well and I must say there is certainly a resemblance but it is likely a later rendition of another.
Rigdan Tagpa or Rigden Takpa and otherwise know as Manjushrikirti was supposedly the 8th King of Shambhala, it is said that he would have become King in about 159 BC and that he was born there. As his name indicates, is considered to have been an incarnation of Manjushri, the Bodhisattva of Wisdom. His rule is said to have extended over “hundreds of petty kings and a hundred thousand cities.” He is said to have expelled 300,510 followers of heretical doctrine of the Mlechhas (meaning Barbarian) or “materialistic barbarians”, some of whom worshipped the sun, I am reminded of the legends of Fusang… but after reconsidering, he brought them back and they asked for his teachings. Could this Mlechhas people be one and the same as the Mecca tribe of Arizona’s past, the Makah of the Northwest or the Chichimeca? It is said that Chichimeca was the name that the Nahua peoples of Mexico generically applied to many bands and tribes of nomadic and semi-nomadic peoples who inhabited northern modern-day Mexico and southwestern United States. Chichimeca carried the same sense as the Roman term “barbarian” to describe people living outside settled, agricultural areas.( borrowed from Wiki)
Manjushrikirti was the first king of Shambhala to be given the title Kalki (Tib. Rigden), meaning “Holder of the Castes” or “Wisdom Holder. Kalapa, according to Buddhist legend, is the capital city of the Kingdom of Shambhala, where the Kulika King is said to reign on a lion throne. It is said to be an exceeding beautiful city, with a sandalwood pleasure grove containing a huge three-dimensional Kalachakra mandala made by King Suchandra. The name given the same suspect area used by the Roman Jewish Colonies was Calalus and the same suspect place was called by the Spaniards, Cibola with seven cities surrounding lake Cappala I wonder?
In Hinduism, Kalki (Devanagari: meaning Eternity, White Horse, or Destroyer of Filth) is the final incarnation of Vishnu in the current Mahayuga, foretold to appear at the end of Kali Yuga, the current epoch. Religious texts called the Puranas foretell that Kalki will be atop a white horse with a drawn blazing sword. He is the harbinger of end time in Hindu eschatology, after which he will usher in Satya Yuga. (Wiki)
Why does this sound familiar?
The Satya Yuga (Devanagari, also called Sat Yuga, Krta Yuga and Krita Yuga in Hinduism, is the "Yuga (Age or Era) of Truth", when humanity is governed by gods, and every manifestation or work is close to the purest ideal and humanity will allow intrinsic goodness to rule supreme. It is sometimes referred to as the "Golden Age." The goddess Dharma, which symbolizes morality, stood on all four legs during this period.(wiki)
Now the Kalachakra mandala of Buddhism is often a sand painting used for the purposes of cleansing or healing be it physical or spiritual. The only other people who make these sand painting for the exact reasons but with small differences is the Native American Indian more specifically the Apache, Zuni, Tohono O’odhams and Navajo.
The Buddhist Mandala will in most cases have the Lotus at its center with renditions of Lotus peddles throughout, The Navajo use the feather for the exact purpose and having the meaning of power, spirit or holy. Both the Native and the Buddhist mandala displays the four cardinal directions and in many cases you will see the Wheel of Dharma. The Native credit the Ancient ones, Pueblo People, or enlightened or Holy ones for teaching them the practice of, use and meaning of the Mandala. Compare the two together in appearance and you will see comparable characteristics.
NOTICE the Lotus in the center of the wheel and in many cases the Native
Mandala on the left, having the Feathers in the center both of which
having the near identical meaning.
Now why did I include the Aztec Calendar? Well… for the visual obvious reasons but let me give you a closer view of a portion of the Calendar, and one other reason you will see later.
The Lotus Peddle is present indicated by the red arrows, strangely enough the archeologist recognize these as renditions of “Feathers” no matter, they carry the exact meaning.
Also take a good look at the following Aztec Codex manuscript painting, one can’t help but see the obvious connection to the Native American Sand Painting and the Buddhist Mandala.
Now one more little feature that you might be interested in, from the Kalachakra Mandala we find what appears to be typical Native American or Aztec design.
Is it just me or does the center design of the Kalachakra resemble an aerial view of an Aztec Temple? Kalachakra is a Sanskrit term used in Tantric Buddhism that literally means “time-wheel” or “time-cycles”. Perhaps now you get an additional idea of why I included the above Aztec Calendar/time wheel used for time cycles? Things that make you go Hmmm.
Some would say at this point that I am a visionary man, to that I would say, I hope so, some would say my work is speculative and again I would say, I hope so, without speculation, there is no theory which may later become a fact. Every theory begins with speculation. “There is none so blind, as those who will not see”
Now let me show you what really jumped out at me and found to be startling when I found the image of the unknown character while viewing the Ajanta Cave paintings.
Other than a slight difference in the area of the lips we have a near identical rendition of the face of the Lady of Elche, notice the long nose same basic eyes and brows. Compare the Ajanta Cave image with the image of an unknown man which could be Rigden Takpa, the 8th King of Shambhala. Although similar, I would think the two images below are not the same individual.
Is it possible the Lady of Elche is in fact a King of the Mythical land of Shambhala? Or is it someone else? Remember that Kincaid, the finder of the Grand Canyon City said, “Over a hundred feet from the entrance is the cross-hall, several hundred feet long, in which are found the idol, or image, of the people’s god, sitting cross-legged, with a lotus flower or lily in each hand. The cast of the face is oriental, and the carving[s] [of] this cavern. The idol almost resembles Buddha,
Unknown entity of the Ajanta Caves
Presumed to be Prince Mahajanaka
The Mahajanaka Jataka describes the future Buddha’s birth as a prince named Mahajanaka. Mahajanaka’s kingdom was usurped by his wicked uncle, and Mahajanaka became a merchant to gain the fortune that would allow him to regain his kingdom, in the process having many adventures. After many years his uncle died without sons, and his daughter Sivali was only allowed to marry a man who fulfilled certain conditions. Mahajanaka was able to do these, and so he married her and regained his kingdom.
For awhile all was well, but as time went by Mahajanaka became increasingly disenchanted with the attractions of worldly life, seeing them all as a mirage. Sivali was heartbroken, and made many attempts to change his mind, but was unable to do so. Mahajanaka eventually renounced his kingship to become a wandering ascetic, a life story that carries strong parallels with that of Siddhartha, the historical Buddha). [Gautama Buddha] (Wiki)
There is another in our history that carries strong parallels with that of Gautama Buddha, and that of a coming prince that would be born of the first Buddha’s bloodline and it is one whom you might not think.
For a very long time since I first heard the story of Buddha, I have wondered and thought about who this individual could have been. The Buddha story is an incredible one and although I am certain many mythical fallacies have crept into it over the centuries and taking into consideration the teachings of Buddha were not written down for near 300 years before someone said, Hey, shouldn’t we be writing this down? The first rendition of the well known Buddha of today was not created until 300 AD. It is the overall story which I find as a possible comparable candidate to the one individual in who is unparalleled in history and was known worldwide for his great Wisdom, and who is a likely candidate of the identity of what has become known as, The Lady of Elche, but who was Buddha?
In the Aztec belief it was believed that each succeeding Emperor of the Aztec was and incarnation of their God Huitzilopochtli. In Buddhism it was believed that each Buddha was considered as an Avatar of each successor, a literal decent, appearance and manifestation or incarnation. The comparisons of the Aztec belief, and traditions to Hebrew ways and Hindu Buddhist are many.
What’s in the Maize?
To further give credibility to the people of India migrating here long before Columbus, it is widely known and believed that Maize or corn originated in the Americas and was not known to those in the east until the European migrations beginning with the Spanish. This simply is not true, there are obvious renditions of what can only be maize in Egypt, Iraq, ancient Babylon, even as far back as 900 BC. Maize or Corn as we call it here in the west may be thought to have originated here in the west but how did it get here? Science can try as they may to discredit the evidences but wouldn’t it be more productive to adopt the attitude that it is what it is and then try to understand why? There has been one misunderstood report of Maize or corn mentioned in a documentary about Romans, and although the report was in my opinion misunderstood, it would not surprise me one bit to find evidence of it in Rome as they have been coming to the Americas since BC times.
However the fact that ears of corn are found in India on 12th century sculptures is not surprising at all, in fact it might have been these very people responsible for taking it to the Americas if not Moron himself of the first Americans in 2400 BC. Perhaps maize just sprang from the earth after the great flood in the Americas and this is possible, I don’t see how but it sounded good… but I would tend to lean towards the first Americans as bringing the earliest variety of it with them. Regardless, it makes no sense to me to establish an agenda to discredit what is obvious.
If science would just acknowledged God, they would discontinue stumbling over themselves wasting their education by trying to discredit him, I’m sorry, I just don’t get it. It is what it is…
Believed to be 13th century renditions of corn found in India
In a report by M. M. Payak, and J. K. S. Sachan Titled Maize ears not sculpted in 13th century Somnathpur temple in India, these two write a lengthy document explaining why it isn’t maize that is shown and blame the renditions on some made up mythical fruit, yet they do not say a word about the following carving.
Now I don’t think anyone who has been around Corn their entire life could possibly give an alternative explanation as to what this may be. Perhaps some mythical plant of the Greek Gods?
I would have no doubt that the Queen of Sheba and her people in India were traveling back and forth between the old world and the new, just as the Romans would centuries later, not to mention Solomon’s men in the Swan boats and those considered as the first American inhabitants from the great tower. However whether the egg came first or the chicken is neither here nor there, if maize is considered by science to have originated in the Americas which “May” be true, how did it get here? The key to finding the truth and avoiding wasting your education by writing lengthy documents discrediting rather than proving a concept is to first consider the possibility that there is a God, and he didn’t just drop us off here from a UFO just to see what happens.
Mayan Indonesia connection?
It would seem the possible connections between Hinduism and the Aztec Mayan culture runs both ways… To this day the scientists are baffled as to why there are two temples among the many temples of Indonesia, that are so different from all others, in fact, if the person viewing them did not know they were in Indonesia, they would swear they were in the Yucatan…
It is claimed that it is a local tradition that the builders came from Mexico and worshipped the sun as the Mayan did. Regardless, I just find it fascinating that the two temples bear so many similarities to the pyramids of those people bearing the very name of the mother of Buddha, Maya.
Temple of Cetho, date of construction is unknown Indonesia
Temple of Candi Sukuh Indonesia
BELIEVED to have been built in the 1300’s based on a date found nearby, but it is doubted that the date has anything to do with its construction.
Early Americas Hindu Occupancy
In addition to the previous chapter and in order to establish a more probable hypothesis, I add the following concerning early migrations and archaeological discoveries in the west.
But before this, let me say, I am of the belief that after the first Americans (Children of Japheth) came to inhabit this land about 2100 to 2400 BC. After the great flood, and departing from the great tower where the speech was confounded and within just a few hundred years, the people of India for whatever reasons also embarked on a journey to find another land.
It is suspect that these people would have left after the children of Japheth (the First Asians) but prior to the 12 tribes of Israel. This comes from the idea that the Queen of Sheba believed to be one and the same as the people of Shem-bahla, (Children of Shem) referred to themselves in the New World as such because there was a need to distinguish themselves from the children of Japheth already living there. Had they left the old world after the knowledge of the 12 Tribes, they would have no doubt referred to themselves as such rather than one of the 3 distinctions of the 3 sons of Noah. In terms of the 3 DNA Super Groups which all DNA can be traced back to, we have Japheth (SG Asian), Shem (SG European) Ham (SG African), The Hindu people suspect of having been those whom the Queen of Sheba came from, would have been from Noah’s son Shem, or Shemites, (Book of Jasher).
Some have speculated that the queen of Sheba is of Ethiopian origins, however there are several problems with this theory, Sheba was not dark skined as in the African Race although dark as the people of India are prone to be, she just wasn’t a Canaanite, decent of Ham. The Spices Sheba brought which are said to have been unknown at the time, yet the spices of Africa or Ethiopia were well known even then. Others have theorized that the Queen of Sheba was the queen of Egypt and this hypothesis is based on very speculative notions.
I could beat this dead horse some more, but it would serve no purpose as those of the theory of Evil-lution, would only condemn these statements as rubbish.
One only need open the eyes to the paintings of Ajanta to see the very story that makes plain the truth, but blindness has prevented it so far among those of the academic world who WILL not see.
The day will come when the accumulative evidences from what ever source derived, that does not get shoved aside and hidden from the world will show, that Hinduism, which has been called the Oldest Religion in the world, was in fact founded by those first inhabitants of Asia and the First Americans. Each over the next few hundred years evolved into different forms which is only a small foundation of what they have become today. The events of the meeting of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, gave birth to Hinduisms derivative known as Buddhism, which in the end, will also show to have been created largely in the New world as a result of this event of Solomon and Sheba. This enlightenment was then carried to the neighboring relatives of the people of India and Mongolia. As a result you will now find the foundation of this ancient belief, in today’s Buddhism, Hinduism, and the Aztec religion as well as different forms among many Native American Tribes.
In the Americas where the Queen was the Queen of the South, South America that is, Shambhala of Tibetan tales, there has been many a artifact discovered, sometimes documented and other times swept under the rug of Smithsonian. Because it would seem that the academic world is more interested in saving the pride of their piers rather than finding the truth. Many of these discoveries came to light without what is considered as “official” discovery which to me, simply means controlled.
Although many of these things were discovered as far back as 1960’s, the owners of these items wish to remain anonymous for obvious reasons. The following items were found among a hoard of Thogchags.
This is not to say that the possibility exists that the hoard find was not as a result of a confiscation of weapons and religious items of the many Japanese people during the World War II era, a common practice where in the highly regarded items were stolen, as there is no way to sugar coat it, from the Japanese people who were in fact at the time of WW II, American Citizens. Evidence found among the items suggest this could have been the case, however certain items if from the Japanese, who lived near the area in which the items were found, would have to be explained as they are not of any Japanese religion such as the ancient Buddhism or Shinto of the 6th century, but from Hinduism. In addition to this, one would have to explain how the hoard contained several coins from the Indo-Greek era after the Greek conquest of India, why would the Japanese immigrants have these?
Thokchas are metal objects which can have a length of about 2–15 centimetres (0.79–5.91 in). Originally they can have had a practical use such as having been part of horse harnesses, or having served as buckles, fibulae or arrow heads. They can have served as adornment for clothes or objects of daily use like lighters and purses. Thokchas can represent mythological and real animals or deities. One can roughly divide the thokchas into two groups, the first comprising objects of pre-Buddhist period (from about 1000 BC until 900 AD), the second belonging to the Buddhist period (after 7th century AD),
Hindu Tibetan Vajra
Vajra is a Sanskrit word meaning both thunderbolt and diamond. Additionally, it is a weapon which is used as a ritual object to symbolize both the properties of a diamond (indestructibility) and a thunderbolt (irresistible force). Wiki

Small but compelling…
Another recent find giving evidence of the ancient Hindu, people of India or even those of the Roman colonies, being in the Americas in ancient times, is a small coin found in the North Eastern Mountains of Utah at a depth of 10 inches. This is not much that can be said about the find or even the place found. The image below is not the actual coin but is identical in its design.
Coin of India Karshapana of Chutus of the Chutu Dynasty
100 BC to 300 AD
The coin is just larger than a US Quarter.
ALL of the coins found give much credence to expeditions to the Americas by Indo Greek around 100 BC which I might point out, is mentioned in the inscriptions of the Tucson Lead Artifacts.
