This post started of researching the parallels between Krishna stories and Hercules labours. The origins in my opinion, lay in astronomy. To the end of this post a story starts to emerge if all things and history is taken into consideration, that might rewrite current known history.
We know Hercules is orion, who is is helper, its Boötes
Quote Wikipedia: The name Boötes was first used by Homer in his Odyssey as a celestial reference point for navigation, described as “late-setting” or “slow to set”, translated as the “Plowman”
Quote Wikipedia: Balarama, is also known as Baladeva, Balabhadra, Haladhara and Halayudha. The first two epithets refer to his strength, the last two associate him with Hala (Langala, “plough”) from his strong associations with farming and farmers, as the deity who used farm equipment as weapons when needed.
I hereby Identify and link Krishna and BalaRama to Orion and Bootes, the gemini half brothers, like hercules + iolaus, hercules + Apollo and Cain + Abel.
We can see there are Parallels between India and Greece stories under disguise of different names. Others have identified Shiva nataraja allready with Orion.
The question that arises is was it just astronomy that was told or was there also a ‘real story’ of history behind these myths.
Krishna fighting Sesha is hercules fighting the Hydra.
The story of Enkidu and Gilgamesh slaying the bull of heaven is similar to Krishna and Balarama slaying the buffalo demon Aristasura.
It is also related to the Mithras myth of the bullslaying, which is astronomical in nature as well as this great book explains highlighting the meaning of the bull slaying statue and identifying scorpio, hydra, canis minor and the bull Taurus, the sun through the year.
The “twin brothers” is a reference to Gemini. (Note the red and blue colour, as explained in my article The universal religion.
A great article is also here on Gemini. http://www.souledout.org/hercules/herculesgemini/herculesgemini.html
Cain and Abel
This story also relates to Cain (Orion) and Abel (Bootes) story.
I noticed that Bootes was agricultural and orion with his cow and aries nearby husbandry (PASTORalism).
If the skies turn, bootes comes first and then gets “killed” by Orion. One brother that has animals (cain) kills the one who offers fallen crops (abel).
English: Cain and Abel, ivory panel from the cathedral of Salerno, ca. 1084.
Français : Caïn et Abel, panneau en ivoire provenant de la cathédrale de Salerne, v. 1084.
|Dimensions||H. 10.9 cm (4 ¼ in.), W. 22.1 cm (8 ½ in.)|

Of very specific noteworthy mention here in above picture of that ivory tablet, showing the cain and abel scene, is the inclusion of that PILLAR. That is a direct reference to the sky (pillar of heaven) and thus to constellations again. The pillar of heaven is a synonym for the skies, like we see in Mycenae and the Asherah pillar great godess cult.
Now lets move on to interpret the Cain and Able story.
- Cain the farmer, is Bootes
- Abel, the Pastoralist,or shepherd, is orion
The stars/skies rotate. Constellations rise in the east and set in the west.
First Abel (Orion) sacrifices his best ram. That is Aries. Aries is the first constellation to go down the horizon. After that it is Orions turn to fall below the horizon. Bootes rises after Orion and effectively “kills” Orion from the skies .
We can conclude like the romans woshipped Hercules, Hercules, the TRUE SHEPHARD OF ANU, is also the PASTORalist, the good shepherd (and thus by default the later Jezus)
Quote wikipedia: It was Cain, the agricultarilist, who Cain continued his wickedness in Nod: resorting to violence and robbery; establishing weights and measures; transforming human culture from innocence into craftiness and deceit; establishing property lines (which we see today); and building a fortified city. Nod is said to be outside of the presence or face of God. Origen defined Nod as the land of trembling (volcanic) and wrote that it symbolized the condition of all who forsake God.
Nod was EAST of the garden of Eden. This is of suspected importance later.
The synonyms of the shepherd are clearly there. Both the first and new testament are astronomical stories. Although Orion as the shepherd (and not as hunter, we have to dig deeper in time into astronomy)
Quote: Babylonians knew Orion as MUL.SIPA.ZI.AN.NA or The Heavenly Shepherd (The True Shepherd of Anu) in the Late Bronze Age and associated the constellation with Anu, the god of the heavenly realms. Egyptians associated it with Osiris, the god of death, afterlife and rebirth. http://www.constellation-guide.com/constellation-list/orion-constellation/
Strengthening the Hercules/Orion connection.
Hercules/ Orionwas the spring constellation, resurection at easter, sounds familiar? When the land became green, the green man as seen in northern cyltures, hence its green colour, or the cerne giant, all worship of the orion constellation in other forms, with his big phallus, symbolizing fertility of the land and the male symbol. (arche
Hercules/Orion the cerne giant. It was found there was a lions skin as well during archeological excavations. The Hercules connection is strengthened by the 1996 discovery of the cloak, as Hercules was often depicted with a cloak made from the Nemean Lion‘s skin.
Noteworthy is Adams third son, Set.
In Egyptian mythology, Set is portrayed as the usurper who killed and mutilated his own brother Osiris. Osiris’ wife Isis reassembled (remembered) Osiris’ corpse and resurrected him long enough to conceive his son and heir Horus.
Again, a battle of 2 brothers. Even though it can be related to the stars, like many other similar myths, where did the original story come from that was the basis of naming the constellations as such?
Hence we can confidently say that that Orion was Able in the old testament and the true shepherd Jezus in the new testament (together with the 3 kings stars of Orion and Sirius for the star of Bethlehem), and the basis of the churchs pontifs regalia, together with the Mitre (fish hat) for the age of PISCES. (tThat came after the ram and after the bull taurus) Hence Jezus’ particular “fish”symbolism and Oannes / Johannes the fisher of men.
There is a lot of hidden symbolism if you can read it / knows it relates to astronomy.
It is important to see that there is no difference between Hercules, Abel, Osiris or even Shiva in all these seperate “religions” but they are ALL linked by astronomy and different names/stories telling the same rotation of the skies.
The tree in the garden of eden relates to the skies and world tree of pillar of heaven (Mycenae) and the snake in the tree is the constellation is hydra. However that is to much to explain here as that is the tree of life symbolism. I have covered that elsewhere.
Indra vs Vritra and the Ashvini twins
We see later “gods” wrestle the serpent as seen in my article the universal religion.
Shiva, also “wears the serpent”
(one example: Indra and Vritra, using Dadichis bones to slay Vritra. he made a Vayra or lightning bolt weapon of of the bones.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dadhichi) This is not taken literally, he used a constellations “bones” I suspect sagitaurus (half horse, horse headed), to kill the later hydra..
Indras battles are astronomical in nature like Hercules labours. Another example is the battle of Indra with the ashwini twins, another reference to Gemini..
We see now that multiple Indian “main” books, the RIGVEDA (Indra) and the MAHABRATTA (Krishna) all are astronomical in nature and that these stories are identical to Greek mythology stories, just different names where used but the underlying rotation of the skies and the relation to constellations is clearly present.
The castor-pollux Gemini relation is shown here:
Quote wikipedia: The Ashvins are derived from the Proto-Indo-European horse twins. Their cognates in other Indo-European mythologies include the Baltic Ašvieniai, the Greek Castor and Polydeuces, the Roman Castor and Pollux, the English Hengist and Horsa, and the Welsh Bran and Manawydan.
Ashwashira – The One With The Horse’s Head
Dadhichi is said to have been a master of a Vedic art known as Brahmavidya (Madhu Vidya) that would enable one to attain immortality. Indra, the King of the Devas, felt his position was insecure with such power in the hands of a mortal man, especially one with as much power as Dadhichi possessed by virtue of being a rishi. Indra was also against the Ashwini twins (Gods of Medicines) learning Brahmavidya and swore that he would behead the one who taught them the art.
However the Ashwini twins wished to learn this art and devised a plan to protect Dadhichi from Indra‘s power. They learned the art from Dadhichi after cutting off his head, preserving it and replacing it with one from a horse. Indra, blinded by his wrath, beheaded the horse-headed sage and left.
The Ashwini twins then put Dadhichi head back’s and revived him with the Madhuvidya that he had taught them. This was how the sage came to be called Ashvashira – The One with the Horse’s head.
The sage of medicines is the later Aesculapius or the constellation Ophiucius.. This requires further research.
Shiva and Durga
Lets go back to India and see if we see any further parallels. We have identified the main god as Hercules/Orion. (with the bull Taurus)
Adam (Orion) and Eve (Virgo) being the prototypes noted in the bible. We also see a male female link in India, namely Shiva and Durga.
If we establish Shiva is also Orion, linked to Taurus, then we have to find Durga in the skies.
Lets look at the below. The first image finds her. It is VIRGO.
Durga is often seen with a tiger, also with a lion, she is the prototype of Isis, Brittania, Helvetica and many others. Notice the exact same symbolism?
Why, because she is the constellation of VIRGO, her lion is LEO. Related to the Sea with her trident (like poseidon in above pictures) as the bottom half of the skies was a sea and the top a sky.)
The cross on the shield (and of the catholic church), in the flag of Switzerland and the union jack is a direct reference to the zodiacal cross (or symbolic tree of life) as explained in my article the universal religion.
The lady to Virgo. The lion to Leo, the Cup to Crater and the lion to Leo.
It is worth mentioning that the sun was female in ancient days and the moon male, the god sin. Or what we see here is a combination of opposites, I am not sure of that but this article explains it. http://www.lionpath.net/zwoelf.html
Back to Krishna
In terms of the indian stories, a story emerges in the stars of a dark brother (krishna blue is also dark) and a light brother, that needs further investigation and is omitted/excluded from Greek mythology.
Balarama, the white one was a brother from another mother, but a brother none the less.
Quote wikipedia: Balarama’s legend appears in many Parva (books) of the Mahabharata. The Book Three (Vana Parva) states Krishna and him to be brothers born to separate mothers, but one father. Book One (Adi Parva) states the circumstances that lead to light skinned Balarama, and dark skinned Krishna. Book Thirteen (Anushasana Parva) presents the mythology of Sesha’s incarnation into Balarama, as Vishnu incarnated as Krishna, likely reflecting the basis why most of ancient and early medieval artworks of Balarama show a snake hood on top of his head.
Why are Indian and Greek and Sumerian myths based on similar astronomy and altered accordingly slightly but still identifiable as the same. Its the tale of the two brothers the farmer and the animal keeper and the offering to god, where abel (Hercules or the true shephard) was “slain” as the farmer by his brother Bootes (Cain) because the offering to god was seen as “better”.
The above image is slightly confusing as in 1 image it incorporates both of orions symbolism, the bow and the club. Now who is who exactly?
As you see in the gemini image colour, Bootes, the farmers, (balarama) colour red, (the white farming race) or Cain that went east of eden (europe) and build fortified cities (myceanan pre greece), so red was directly linked to the white race in a way. Blue, the dark race. The cow herders and shepherds are possibly the Indian civilization, the more peaceful race. (never waged wars)
Apollo, was blue and with an instrument(harp), just like Krishna and Shiva had an instrument.(Peace)
Rama and Lakshmana
Note the skin colour difference again, as pointed out earlier between the “brothers” Is this all the same story with different names?
Was there a brother war? Yes there was..
I suspect a racial war in the past where the white race split from the darker race, even though they where “brothers” The white race moves east (to greece/europe) but had the same origins/roots possibly near India.
Is that why Adolf Hitler choose a red flag for his Nazi empire and was he searching so much in that land.
Adam, also means red in Hebrew. Hebrew אדם (‘adam) meaning “to be red“, referring to the ruddy colour of human skin. It would indeed make sense from an occult perspective but thats for another time to dicuss.
The colours symbolism is more explained in the universal religion post of which this post is an adendum.
Why is there a “dark brother and a light brother” legend not found / mentioned or omitted in Sumerian and Greek mythology. Vague remnants are there in the stars (Gemini) and the bootes/orion story.
However it is sort of mentioned in the sons of Noah which is based on the indian story of Manu. There where 3 sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth . The arabic race/shemites, the white race and the black race. I need to check further references to the Manu story.
What is also of considerable interest is the duality between hercules and his club and apollo with his musical instrument, a war vs peace scenario, that is also seen in the US eagles talons, and later depictions of brittania, wheat and spear/trident. So the godess Durga, is also the main godess of Brittain, Brittania. The Danu(va) race.
The indians are a peacefull, mostly vegetarian race that have been invaded but never fought wars themselves. It is also interesting to look into that specific dualism.
Is this a remniscent of the faith of the world that alternates between period of war vs periods of world peace, like it becomes summer and winter, the Yuga cycles?
Are these stories showing a split/war in ancient times, between Pastoralist and Agriculturalist? Meat eaters vs non meat eaters? White race vs Black race?
It points into that direction. The agriculturalist cain was expelled from the garden of eden, but perhaps this story was misconstrued and it was actually good to eat no meat as killing is not good. Perhaps this history was rewritten by the victors, the PASTORalists… descendants of Cain, who build fortified cities in the mediteranean, listed land ownership and did all that Cain did..
Abel, might actually the Indian race. The agricultural non meat eaters.
If we look at the Egyptian Pharos tools, he is carrying both the shepherds crook (pastoralist) and the flail (agriculturalist)
Later minoan civilization and the mycenae Civilizations where showed a BULL cult, related to Taurus, indicating mainly Pastoralist.
The father of Pandu and Dhritarashtra is also the father of Vidura, namely, Veda Vyasa – Krishna Dvaipayana.
Veda Vyasa is the title and the name is Krishna Dvaipaayana just as in Dr X (name) Dr is the title and X is the name. He was named Krishna because he was born black, and since he was born in an island (WHAT ISLAND??), he was named Dvaipaayana.
All the three (Dhritarashtra, Pandu and Vidura) were the illegitimate sons of Veda Vyasa.
- Dhritarashtra was conceived by Ambika
- Pandu was conceived by her younger sister Ambalika. (umbilical cord??)
- Vidura who grew up to be a replica of Dharma (righteousness) as predicted by Veda Vyasa
Both Ambikaa and Ambaalikaa are daughters of Kaashya, the king of Kaashi (Varanasi or Benares).
Dhritarashtra (DARK RACE / HAM) – was born blind because Ambika, having been frightened of Veda Vyasa’s appearance, shut her eyes completely during copulation with Veda Vyasa. So Veda Vyasa had to repeat the performance with Ambalika. Everything went well here, but, again on seeing the fearsome appearance of Vyasa.
Ambaalikaa (WHITE RACE / JAPETH) – turned pale during the niyoga act . So the conceived child was born pale and he was named Pandu.
Indian albino. Perhaps the ‘deformity’ that was spoken of and the progenitors of the white race. Facial features like nose, eyes, facial hair, between Indians and europeans are similar minus haircolour blond and red. I propose that an Indian mutation is described in the mahabaratta and could possibly be origin of the white race.
Now the person behind all these arrangements was none other than Satyavati (royal mother, mother of the deceased Vichitraveerya and mother-in-law of Ambika and Ambalika) whose first son was Veda Vyasa who too was illegitimate. Now Satyavati had summoned Veda Vyasa to impregnate the issueless two widowed queens (of Vichitraveerya) Ambika and Ambalika in order to obtain a legal heir to the Hastinapura throne. Since the previous two processes did not produce the desired result, that is one normal healthy heir to the throne, Veda Vyasa was summoned for the third time by Satyavati.
Vidura (Shemetic race / SHEM) – Ambika agreed to go through the ordeal again. But, at the last moment, she could not muster sufficient courage to face Veda Vyasa. So, she sent her maidservant in her place (similar to abraham and Hagar). The maid had intercourse with Veda Vyasa in full attention and with full devotion. The result was the birth of a normal child with no disability (white colour or blindness). That child was named Vidura. (Indicating this was also a dark child)
Now both Dhritarashtra and Vidura did not qualify for the throne of Hastinapura because the former suffered from the physical disability of blindness, and the latter, being the son of a maidservant.
*Note: Could this indicate the 3 sons of Noah, noahs sons, a dark race (Ham), a white race (Japed) and the Shemites (The chosen ones / Dharma) It also faintly reminds of the story of Abraham who also has intercourse with a maid servant Hagar (ishmael)
Was the ancient great war as listed in the Mahabaratta a war between the pastoralist and agriculturalist, the war between the two “brothers”? (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurukshetra_War)
Descendant from Pandu, meaning Whitish/pale. (The younger line of King Kuru)
Descendants from Dhritarashtra (elder line of King Kuru) Pandu was a half brother.
Eventually the Kauravas loose the war and only 1 son, Yuyutsu stays alive as he fought on the side of the Pandavas:
During Kurukshetra War: Before the onset of the battle of Kurukshetra War between Kauravas and Pandavas, Yuyutsu shifts from Kauravas to the Pandava camp. Yuyutsu fought the battle on the side of the Pandavas. He was one among the 11 Maharathis (capable of fighting 720,000 warriors simultaneously) among the Kauravas. Yuyutsu was one among the eleven warriors to have survived the war.
This indicates that India was rules by the last remaining Kaurava while the Pandevas moves to Sumer and Europe.
This also aligns with was was said about Cain, he moved to the trembling lands and build fortification cities in the mediteranean (mycenae citadels) As per timeframe, PRE Kali Yuga, which is iron age, this would place these events in the BRONZE AGE, exactly the time of the Mycenae Mediterranean Pelasgian civilization..
Two brothers fighting……
Both show descent from Kuru yet they fought together. (Different lines indicating different mothers, which could make a black and white race)
Did the pastoralist , Cains descendants, move east to the land of Nod, that trembled (Volcanic greece)
Was there a split between the white race and the dark Indian race at that time after the Mahabaratta war.
Did the Pandevas move east and started the greek and western civilizations?
Due to disability (blindness) of the other brother and child of maid servant) and the basis of the biblical Cain and Able story, that was specifically captured in astronomy (gemini) and in the blue and red occult symbolism in the later western world and also this would make sense why Hitler had such an interest in India.
All of Kaureva where killed, except 1 child of the slain brother , Yuyutsu, it seems the pandevas became king , heir to the throne of Hastinapura
Yudhishthira (Pandeva) gave the charge of supervising the kingdom to Yuyutsu (the last remaining Kaureva descend)
The stories of the Ramayana and Mabharata, are also displayed in the wayang art are at the core of Hinduism, the oldest and most important books. Could these books be hidden in the stars in the form of western constellations and point to a common story?
We could speculate, that all this information combined, would elude to an extremely interesting VEDIC ORIGINS of the Caucasian race as a half brother of the kingdom of Kuru and basis of the Cain and Abel (and third child Seth) story . Abel left no heirs (or did he) and Cain’s heirs, according to tradition, were destroyed by the Great Flood. (The volcanic etna explosion?)
In any case, The story that is depicted in the stars of the two brothers if you combine the constellations. That the Cain and Abel story is a form of the story of the Mahabaratta war.
It seems the naming of the constellations was initially to tell the story of the two brothers and the war at that time and the red and blue colour to elude to a dark race and a white version of race with the same dark father, giving information that the white race might have migrated from India to the Mediterranean, where they consequently build the bronze age fortresses and gave rise to the Greek civilization as the Pelasgians.The time period, before the Kali Yuga (iron age) fits in perfectly and would explain the rise of the European civilization.
*update 1 June 2018
A study on mice migration (linked to agriculture) shows exactly what I tried to argue here above.
The highest concentrations are in the northern India area where the mahabaratta royalty lived and Greece.
