Why Vedic Gods are absent in 4500 years old Indus Valley Civilisation?

Recommended Posts

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indus_Valley_Civilisation#Religion

 

Today, we have several Vedic Gods present in all Hindu houses. 

People of Indus civilization were also very good in making statues. Look at their craftsmanship.

This is So-called "Priest King" statue, Mohenjo-daro, late Mature Harappan period, National Museum, Karachi, Pakistan.

And this is the The Dancing Girl of Mohenjo-daro; 2400–1900 BCE;

 

 

Why their script was totally different to the Vedic script?

Not only  there language was different, but also there is no hint of Sanskrit in whole of Indus Valley civilisation. 

Contrary to Sanskrit, their language resembles South Indian languages and belong to the the  proto-Dravidians group of languages.

Stamp seals, some of them with Indus script

 

These stamps are again showing they were totally able to draw the Vedic Gods. 

 

But despite all this craftsmanship, there is no Vedic God has been found in the Indus Valley Civilisation.

 

Why?

 

Western researchers tell it is due to the reason that Aryans invaded after the fall of the Indus Valley civilisation i.e. about 4500 years ago. And they were the first one who initiated the Vedic religion. That is why Vedic gods are absent in the Indus Valley civilisation. 

 

But a part of Hindu researchers claim that this is a Western conspiracy against the Vedic religion. I don't think this is good enough proof/excuse by these Hindu researchers.

There were thousands of statues found in the Indus valley. Out of these thousands of statues, finally one Hindu researcher Swami Nathan was able to find ONE statue of Vedic God Indra.

A website by Swami Nathan claims about this image:

Indra is called Chakra [sic.: He is called "Shakra"] in Vedas. His mount is elephant Airavata.
Chakra is seen above his head in the tablet.
Indra is king as well as Chakravarthi(emperor).
Indus artistes followed west asian model in portraying him.
http://swamiindology.blogspot.com/2011/05/indra-in-indus-valley-with-airavata-and.html

However, the figure in the seal looks a bit like a woman with a breast and a big puff of hair, so I am skeptical that it is Indra. And I'm skeptical that it's a "chakra", because it looks like a Dharma wheel instead.

The same author says:

TIGER GODDESS

Photoconvex moulded tablet in Harappa museum shows a female figure fighting two tigers standing above an elephant ( I have interpreted this as Indra on Irawatha or Bharata who played with lions even when he was young. A chakra sign on top of the head may denote Indra’s name=chakra or Bharata= Eka Chakratipati).
https://tamilandvedas.com/2012/08/22/tiger-goddess-of-indus-valley/

So this author basically undermines his claim that it's Indra by saying that it's a "female figure" that he calls a "tiger goddess".

link.

 

And if this was really Indra and Indus valley population worshipped him, then don't you think that this Indra Chakra should be present more than "one" in the whole Indus Valley Region?

 

And with this craftsmanship, were Indus valley people not able to make better statues of Indra than the one which Swamy is using for his claim?

Not just Indra, varuna, mitra were also worshipped in some form. Prominent is mother goddess and Pashupati ( Shiva) has roots from Sindhu Saraswathi civilization. They also worshipped Trees.

 

They were either preVedic or parallel to them and definitely there are some continuation signs in god worship, Yoga, meditation. 

 

Sanskrit was orally shared for 1000s of years and have been written in many scripts like Brahmi, Tamil, Kannada apart from becoming popular in Devanagiri fairly recently in the previous millenium. Sindhu Saraswathi script is not deciphered, but we dont know what language they spoke. 

 

Plus the signs of swastika, and some symbols used in yoga could be seen in their excavations.

Whole bunch of nonsense by Pakistani propaganda peddler. We don’t know what language IVC spoke. But Sanskrit is a language, not a script. Devanagari, the script used to write Sanskrit currently, is 1500 years old. Before that we had Gupta script, Tamil and Andhra Brahmi and before that, brahmi. 

 

The priest king is just someone’s modern guess. However we do have pashupati seal from IVC which closely resembles Shiva.

ok, let us assume your claim to be true that Sanskrit was the original spoken language in all regions in that time, including the Indus valley civilisation. Then it is very safe to assume that IVC people knew very very well the SIGNS of their gods. For example, signs of:

 

Brahma: He is said to have gown in a lotus out of the navel of the sleeping Vishnu.  He has four heads, but once had one, grew four more, and then lost one. 

Vishnu: He carries his symbols in his hands and often has a U shaped symbol on his forehead. 

Shiva: Hindus portray Shiva as sitting upon a tiger or panther skin, having three white horizontal stripes upon his forehead, and a third vertical eye. 

Ganesha: Who is also almost as old as first three (at least older than IVC people of 2000 BC) He is easily identified by his elephant head.  

 

Brahma1.jpg Vishnu.jpg Shiva1.jpg hindui2.jpg

 

So, the question is:

 

(1) How many of these main Hindu gods (with all these signs) have been found in IVC? 

ZERO?

Please correct me if I am wrong. 

Why?

If these Vedic gods were worshipped in IVC too, then there should have been hundreds or thousands of their statues present there. 

 

(2) Let us return to claim about Indra. 

How much resemblance does this statue has with the description of Indra in Vedic texts? 

Where are his weapons like Vajra and Indra's Net?

300px-Vajra.jpg

And was Indra a woman in the Vedic Texts? What about the author's own contradiction when he declared this statue of a woman at other place? 

How many statues of Indra have been found? 
ONE?

Why only one? 

 

These were my basic questions, which have not been answered. 

 

Quote

there are some continuation signs in god worship

It is a wild wild guess. 

Using this much wild imagination, you could also make statues of Greek Gods to be the continuation of Vedic gods in one way or another. 

Here is Greek Indra (Zeus) with Vajra in his hand:

240px-Jupiter_Smyrna_Louvre_Ma13.jpg

 

This Greek Indra has more resemblance to Vedic Indra as compared to the IVC Indra. 

 

Quote

They were either preVedic or parallel to them and definitely there are some continuation signs in god worship, Yoga, meditation. 

Pre-Vedic means that Vedic religion is less than 4500 years old, and Vedic gods are indeed not the the creators of this universe/world.

Parallel means also the same. 

Vedic Religion could only becomes truthful in it's claims, when it is proved that these Vedic gods were eternal (at least before the creation of this world and IVC people)

Therefore pre-Vedic or parallel is not going to work in light of the claims of the Vedic Religion. 

 

Continuation signs means "Evolution of Religion".

It is certainly possible that Later Coming Vedic religion adopted some practices of Older IVC practices. 

But again the problem arises if IVC becomes OLDER than Vedic religion, then Vedic religion is going to loose it's claims.

To support your claim, show us carvings of figurines of Vishnu Indra Brahma etc from 400 bc then....if Vedic religion is later than IVC because there are no depictions of Brahma or Vishnu, then by same standards Vedic gods are post Vedic age, since no depictions exist going back more than 200 bc.

Here is this seal:

Have you seen the craftsmanship of the IVC people?

If Sanskrit was the spoken language of IVC, why then they missed this Vedic Vishnu?

And lastly, how many Vishnu's Statues (How many Seals of Lord Shiva) were discovered from the entire IVC? Only one? Please correct me if I am wrong. Why only one?

Vishnu is later Vedic period God, fyi. How many religious seals or statues have been found in the IVC in the first place ? Answer is less than ten.....most of which show Pashupati.

History of old cave Paintings in India:

 

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cave_paintings_in_India

Almost all early painting in India survives in caves, as very few buildings from Ancient India survive, and though these were probably often painted, the work has been lost. The history of cave paintings in India or rock art range from drawings and paintings from prehistoric times, beginning around 30,000 BCE in the caves of Central India, typified by those at the Bhimbetka rock shelters

Paintings in Bhimbetka caves / Wikimedia Commons, user LRBurdak, CC BY-SA 3.0

 

465px-Bhimbetka_Cave_Paintings.jpg

Cave painting at Bhimbetka.

 

 

While the oldest Statues in the world are about 30,000 years old. 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statue

The Löwenmensch figurine from the Swabian Alps in Germany is the oldest known statuette in the world (it is just over a foot tall), and dates to 30,000-40,000 years ago.[6][7][8] The Venus of Hohle Fels, from the same area, is somewhat later.[9] From the ancient Near East, the over-life sized stone Urfa Man from modern Turkey comes from about 9,000 BC, and the 'Ain Ghazal Statues from around 7200 BC and 6500 BC. These are from modern Jordan, made of lime plaster and reeds, and about half life-size; there are 15 statues, some with two heads side by side, and 15 busts.

 

Now it has been claimed that the Vedic gods are the most ancient ones who actually created the world, the Vedic Civilizaiton is the most ancient one, and they possessed the best craftsmanship. 

But then how could we answer this question that the paintings of Vedic gods are not even 4500 years old, despite thousands of other paintings and statues surviving which are much older than 4500 years old?

First, school yourself first about Dharma, God, abstractness,  Puranas, and depiction of gods and their evolution of depiction. Modern depiction of vedic gods are not to be confused with what was found and aged 5000 years ago. Don't equate the two..can't believe, this had to be said.

You will not get any solid proof of a religion claims.   How do we know Jesus was born in Nazareth? I believe ithihaas is not exact fact like how science defines history, but you shouldn't rule out the whole thing as mythology. They have happened but not exactly how depicted.

Ok, np, you don't believe in Vedas,it is fine, we accepted and respected non-believers who didn't believe in vedas (charvakas, Buddhists, Jains), proves this civilization was far more liberal than modern religions like Islam and Christianity.

Basically hindus(Indians) were all worshippers of nature. Even today here in Tamilnadu, we celebrate Pongal, which is a harvest festival praying to Sun and the gods that the year should be prosperous. There is aadi perukku where we worship the river cauvery (water). There are also instances where we Indians worship trees, in this instance pasupathi (pasu - cow). There are temples for snakes as well. The other gods came into picture when we needed a more human like form to pray, which is also essentially a part of nature. Since we can relate to this better, it has stayed with us for long.

Scientific hat on. No religious stuff. Please dont get offended.

Calculate the age of link between India and Srilanka i.e Ram Setu when it was not submerged based on sea level rise and Indian plate (techtonic plate theory) tilt.  It comes about 1.7 million old when channel between India and Srilanka would have been connected by land. Thats age of Ramayana.

 

You will also notice that main characters were a cross. Ram was darker then rest of population, so definitely , he was result of cross breeding.

 

Lord Shiva aka "Adi Shakti (ancient Energy)" was all black. So he is definitely pure Black person. He was referred a lot of times in Ramayana. Nowhere near that In "Mahabharata" Story is white Sages cut down his Linga for all their women were attracted to it. Now you can put critical hat on and figure out what really happened. Its his Linga aka brute term Penis which represent fertility which is worshipped all across.


 

So it was a period of cross breeding. IMO, There was indigenous population In India which wasnt all black.  SriLankans had Ravana which was black and had a army of blacks. Few women (very few women) were black. Infact Vibhishana a brother of Ravana is not all black. So Srilanka too was in a era of cross breeding. Remember, The fight against Ram vs Ravana is for Woman. Not black woman. Ravana has been linked with disrespting woman or taking  women captive from mainland India

 

 

In Mahabharata, apart from Lord Krishna, there were not many Blacks. Also Lord Krishna was definitely a cross between a black and someone else. Infact all other gods arent black.

 

In Ramayana, they were adept in arrows and mace. Although Shiva had trident.

In Mahabharata main characters are adept in arrow, mace but spear too.

In modern India, all Indians are black or a shade of black
