Amazing Geographical Knowledge of the Vedic Hindus!
There was no satellite circling the earth to monitor the places but it is beautifully described with correct routes in the Vedas. There are Vedic verses describing the benefits of moon for the earth in terms of weather and formation of conducive atmosphere. So moon which is supposed to be ruled by Moon God, Chandra, was giving such information to the earth people. As it is perfectly placed to monitor any movement on earth from any place. It was this Vedic truth and one of the reasons that forced Americans to make moon as a base to watch every country in the guise of exploring new avenues for human population. But they were not able to trace the exact place from where they can place equipment to keep eyes on rival countries without any interference. And further exploration was shelved. Yes, you can actually monitor every corner of earth from moon. No we are not supporting the concept of aliens, we do not believe that farce theory, we are envisaging the Vedic concept of subtle beings coming to the earth through subtle planes and connecting with subtle bodies of enlightened Rishis to bestow them with divine knowledge.

Hint of Vedic Geography and Spread of Hindu Kingdoms
Santanam did some research and shared with others publicly, underlying the fact that Vedic Hindus knowledge of geography is amazing. Most people know that the Vedas are books of hymns and not a book on history and geography of India. And yet they get surprised to find names of scores of rivers, mountains and countries. It covers a vast area from Iran to the Vindhyas. They knew the seas on both sides of the Indian subcontinent. They ventured into seas and rescued shipwrecked Bhujyu (mentioned in at least ten places in the Rig Ved) and others. They relate the names of 30 plus rivers from EAST of India showing that they were born and brought up on the banks of Ganges. Indra is allocated direction EAST and Varuna the WEST indicating they marched from the Gangetic plains to the seas in the west spreading the Vedic civilization. We have already archaeological proof of Vedic gods from Turkey –Syria area dated circa 1400 BCE.
Hindu Kings of Iran are clearly mentioned in the eighth Mandala of the Rig Veda. Dasaratha (Amarna) letters of Egypt is another archaeological proof to show that the Vedic kings sent their daughters up to Egypt. So the Vedic Hindus knew the areas covering Iran, Turkey, Syria, Iraq in the Middle East and Egypt in Africa, long before forefathers of likes of columbus were not even in the wombs of their mothers. Indisputable archaeological proof is there to support this. The Vedas mention lot of names of kingdoms in India, but the early translators of the Vedas, who purposely believed that the Hindus came from outside, to claim European and WEST authority on Vedas, described the kingdoms names as “tribes”.
The fact was Hindu kings spread to the Europe and west to bestow primitive people there with knowledge of civilization and ethics to end their ignorance.
Why Hindu Kingdoms were Described as Tribes ?
Later Mahabharat mentioned 30 kingdoms! Just to suit their imaginative theory of migration into India non-Hindu scholars translated those Vedic Kingdoms’ names as “tribes”! The Samhitas, Brahmanas, Aranyakas and the Upanishads were all composed even before the Greeks knew how to write properly! No primitive civilization can have vast literature like this. They have very clear cut ideas of geography which we knew from their coinage of the word Sapta Sindhava (Rig Ved.8-24-27). Names of hundreds of Hindu kings are available in the Vedic literature pertaining to the kingdoms they ruled. And we know that they are not tribal leaders because there is a long list of kings who did Aswamedha Yagna. The horse covered several kingdoms and all were taken by the emperor who did the Yagna. Aswamedha Yagna is performed by brave and able kings not tribal leaders !
The great war – War of the Ten Kings— Dasarajna Yuddha in the Rig Veda—clearly show that there were at least ten kingdoms by the time. But foreign “Scholars” described them as tribes! The Great War was described in detail in several hymns in the Rig Veda, but not mentioned in the epics which show the lapse of time between the epics and the Vedas. We know that the Vedas were vast which made Vyasa of Mahabharat to compile them and divide them into four Vedas for common people to easily comprehend it.
Later epics like Ramayan and Mahabharat spoke about Swayamvars attended by lot of kings from different countries. Remember they say KINGS and not tribes. Krishna’s travel from Mathura in Uttar Pradesh to Dwaraka in Gujarat show how advanced was the road transport in those days. Before Krishna, Bharat travelled all the way from Iran-Afghanistan ( Kekaya) border to Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh quickly. The route is explained clearly in the Ramayan.
Sughriv clearly directs the vanars which places to look during their search for Mata Sita. The way Ramayan describes it, shows that Sughriv not only gave direction but also informed them about the routes and events that they could face during their journey to those places. And these monuments, natural occurrences are still found across India, Himalayas and Sri lanka.
Ramayan, Mahabharat and Vedic texts have long living proofs in the form of places across world with detailed events so as to how the places were ruled with the history associated with them.
By around 3rd century BCE, Hindus were using the monsoon wind to travel to Patna from Sri Lanka. It took only seven days. Ravan and his cousins used the Godavari river region as their playground. He travelled all the way to Kailash from Sri Lanka by using the monsoon wind (sea route up to Bengal).
Verses of Vedas on Geographical Places of India, West and Asia
Agastya took 18 groups with him and came to Tamil Nadu by 1000 BCE according to Sangam Tamil Literature. The Purananuru (201) verse very clearly refers to 49 generations before first century CE.
If we look at the Vedic terms with this information in the background, then we can understand where foreign “Scholars” went wrong!
The Satapatha Brahmana (SB 17-3-8) mentions the Eastern people (Pracyas) and the Bahlikas (people of the Western regions). One must remember these are not geography books and yet hundreds of geographical terms occur! The same book refers to Udichya Brahmanas (SB 11-4-1-1; GB 1-36). Aitareya Brahmana (AB 8-14) refers to Madyamadis (Middle Zone) and Pracya (East), South (Dakshna), the West (Pradichya) and the North (Udichya). Hindus always mention the directions in the same clock wise direction. Until this day Hindu people go round the temples in the same way!
They even mention the King Bhoja of the South and the northern most mystical Uttarakuru region. Though South India was full of forests and unoccupied areas they still knew about the South.
Vedic References on Places of Historical Importance
Now let us look at the Vedic references:
Nadi Stuti: ( Rig Ved.10-75) gives the names of the rivers from East to West. (Westerners translated the names according to their pre-conceived notions. If the river names don’t suit their theories they translated differently! In several places they don’t even know whether it is a river or something else! Griffith who said the meaning is ‘obscure’, ‘not clear’ in every page, translated according to his whims and fancies. The main reason for this is all the foreign “scholars” were entertained and taught by third rate Sanskrit Pundits in North India. No sane and respected Sage ever gave space to self-obsessed foreigners. True Vedic scholars refused to teach them the Vedas or Sanskrit. So thousands of mistakes are easily discovered.
Andhra: People mentioned with the Pundras, Sabaras, Pulindas and Mutibas (AB 7-18)
Alina: They ruled Kafiristan (The current name indicates that it was once ruled by Non-Muslims, the name was given after advent of uncivil cult islam – spread in the propaganda of free berth in heaven with 72 virgins without any good deeds or Karma)
Anga: Atharva Ved 5-22-14, GB 2-9 as Anga-Magadhas (This is one of the 16 Big Empires in Buddhist literature)
Bahlika: It is a Western Kingdom mentioned in SB 1-7-3-8 and earlier AV (5-22-5), 5-7-9). The name got corrupted to Bactria in later literature.
Bhalanas: (RV 7-18-7) along with Pakthas (Pakhtoonistan), Alinas, Visanins, and Sivas are other kingdoms that took part in the Ten King War (Dasarajna Yuddha) They all had their own kingdoms in and around present Afghanistan. A person would not be called KING without a kingdom! They are mentioned as TEN KINGS throughout the Rig Ved.
Bharat: The king who gave the name Bharata for India. They ruled the Sarasvati River Region. Like the later Magadha Samrajya, they were the most powerful empire during the Rig Vedic Time.
Cedi: Their king Kasu (RV 8-5-37) ruled either Iran or Bugelgund region in India. Later Cedi kingdom was near the Matsya kingdom.
Matsya: They ruled Rajasthan region. RV mentioned them (RV 7-18-6). Their king name Dhvasan Dvaitavana is mentioned as a performer of Aswamedha in SB 13-4-5-9. Only powerful kings who wanted to conquer the neighbouring kingdoms did Aswamedha Yagna. This shows that a lot of kingdoms existed at the time of Brahmanas which are dated around 1000 BCE even by a conservative estimate.
Pulindas: They are mentioned along with Andhras in South India in Brahmana literature (Aitareya Brahmana. 7-18)
Pundra:They ruled Northern Bengal (AB 7-18)
Purus, Anus, Druhyus, Turvasas and Yadus are the five groups mentioned in several hymns.
The holiest of the holy rivers Sarasvati is mentioned in 80 places in the Vedas. And still flows in India under-currently, triveni sangam of Prayag, validating the actuality of Vedas.
Though the foreign “scholars” translated Raja/Ranja as Kings, they made their kingdoms ‘tribes’ this was cunning ploy to hide the civilization of Vedic empire across India, Asia and some parts of Europe/West.
Since we have got archaeological proof from 1400 BCE with kings names in Sanskrit in inscriptions (Bogazkoy and Amarna letters of Dasaratha in Egypt), we are sure that the tribes are not tribes, but kingdoms or empires. Those who do Aswamedha later proudly proclaimed themselves as Maharaja (Emperor).
A proper study of all the mountains, rivers, towns (including Hariyupa=Harappa), kings, kingdoms, trees, animals and birds will throw more light on the Vedas and Vedic Hindus. Even during the Vedic days it was the largest country in the world from some parts of Trukey through Bay of Bengal in India to some parts of Mongolia!
The presence of such places still seen across the world are monumental proofs that ancient Hindus were very intelligent and they have geographical wisdom to map the routes for future generations.
A deep research is required to chronologically discover all the rivers, mountains and places mentioned in Ramayan, Mahabarat, Purans and Vedas – connecting the dots would reveal that the entire world has ancestors from India – Bharat was mother of all civilizations. And yes many scientists across the world have already acknowledged that Hindu texts are not mythologies but historical events so next time stop calling our epics and Vedic texts as mythologies.
