NASA Images Discover Ancient Bridge between India and Sri Lanka

Space images taken by NASA reveal a mysterious ancient bridge in the Palk Strait between India and Sri Lanka. The recently discovered bridge currently named as Adam’s Bridge is made of chain of shoals, c.18 mi (30 km) long.

The bridge’s unique curvature and composition by age reveals that it is man made. The legends as well as Archeological studies reveal that the first signs of human inhabitants in Sri Lanka date back to the a primitive age, about 1,750,000 years ago and the bridge’s age is also almost equivalent.

This information is a crucial aspect for an insight into the mysterious legend called Ramayana, which was supposed to have taken place in treta yuga (more than 1,700,000 years ago).

In this epic, there is a mentioning about a bridge, which was built between Rameshwaram (India) and Srilankan coast under the supervision of a dynamic and invincible figure called Rama who is supposed to be the incarnation of the supreme.

This information may not be of much importance to the archeologists who are interested in exploring the origins of man, but it is sure to open the spiritual gates of the people of the world to have come to know an ancient history linked to the Indian mythology.

Sri Lanka History

The first signs of human inhabitants in Sri Lanka date back to the Stone Age, about 1.750.000 million years ago. These people are said to have come from the South of India and reached the Island through a land bridge connecting the Indian subcontinent to Sri Lanka named Adam’s Bridge. This is related so in the epic Hindu book of Ramayana.

Adam’s Bridge

Rama’s Bridge, chain of shoals, c.18 mi (30 km) long, in the Palk Strait between India and Sri Lanka. At high tide it is covered by c. 4 ft (1.2 m) of water. A steamer ferry links Rameswaram, India, with Mannar, Sri Lanka. According to Hindu legend, the bridge was built to transport Rama, hero of the Ramayana, to the island to rescue his wife Sita from the demon king Ravana.

    These photos are really so great ,I don’t have exact words to describe these extrordinary photos,its really a proudness for us to have seen these marvellous views created in those days when Sri Ramchandraji has stepped on this earth.

    • Person From Sri Lanka says:

      Hi Dear,
      I went through all the comments… But I see that Western people try to say Asians (specially Indians) are foolish. And answering Indians to that highly offensive statements. Weather this is Sri Ram’s bridge or natural bridge but no way to be Adam’s bridge, we should not fight. Because if Sri Ramchandra exist or not Sri Ramayan is exist. I meant weather it is true story or epic, Sri Ramchandra is the incarnate of rightness (Dharma). He is the best brother, An ideal son, perfect man who teach us how to live. And sri RamChandra also dwells in our hearts as the incarnate of Lord Vishnu. Don’t fight for the existance of Sri Ramchandra, Lakhan Kumar , Sitha devi or others. But try to follow it’s learning. Then all beings will find the real answer.
      JAY RAM SRI RAM JAY JAY RAM !!!

      • Sakthi Ram says:

        How can they call it as Adam’s bridge……Are we calling Statue of Liberty with any other name….Rama’s bridge should be called as Rama’s bridge NOT ANY OTHER…

        • Abhishek says:

          yes you are right mr. sakti ram.. how they called adams bridge… if this is a adams bridge then the name of srilanka is ravan ki lanka… now accept the name… i dont know why we indians alwayz back…

          • Vijay Kumar Parmar says:

            My Brothers.
            you are right, but one thing , The only mention of fact in our holy book Ramayan. Shri Ramchanderji had made a bridge from India to sri lanka​​.that is a fact, and all Hindu’s believe.

        • Ram says:

          Rightly said, it is RAMA’s bridge but not adams bridge. The teachings of RAMA should be followed at the same time identify should not be compromised. NO WAY adams BRIDGE ONLY RAMA’S BRIDGE.

          • r n padhi says:

            Why call it by names which have one or other religious connotation. Why not name it ‘SETUBANDHAM’ MEANING A LAND BRIDGE ACROSS SEA WHICH IT REALLY IS.Homo erectus who lived 1,75 million years ago was not an engineer.Homo sapiens sapien came much later.Rama ,as per literature lived 5000-7000 years ago.Historically we have yet to get evidence of human habitation of periods supposedly of Mahabharata or Ramayana times

        • Kartik says:

          Totally agree

          • yogen rajyaguru says:

            yes u r right but kind for information only brige contraction by rama nor import stonr anywhere ston avilable their & u say its natural but alrady avilble in ramayna this brige thats not incident its true this a rama brige for transportaion for lanka

          • yogen rajyaguru says:

            nothing only this brige many avidance in lanka & his stone period similer this period but stone alrady avilable but now dna report of finger print pruv this this rama brige & hanuman gada also avilabe in lanka

        • Maarten says:

          As Shakespear once so rightly asked.

          Whats in a name ?

          Who cares what other people call it? I for one could care less and am interested in the knowledge of history, and the knowledge both ancient literature and modern science has to offer us.

          I find it strange that followers of any religion are mostly bussy proving their religion is better then others and debating many differences. I simply search truth, and find such in many religions and also in science and see mostly you have to search for deeper meaning in texts rather then take them literaly.

          I have read some vedic texts, but not all of them yet. But from what I have read I find it to be much about spiritual matters and nowhere do I find the importance of names other people give to something who do not agree with you. Find truth within, and worry about what you have in your controll, your thoughts and your actions, the rest is better to accept, coz worrying about things out of your control is just a self destructive activity ;-)

          Am I worried about you worrying one might ask…. no … just trying to vibrate some positive vibes :D its the message that counts not the words ;-)

          • vinit says:

            hi maarten,

            calling it adams bridge is 10000% wrong,

            however, you are 10000% correct in saying that getting the information is what matters the most.

            thanks

          • rekha singh says:

            Hi the same Ramayan mentions about “viman” now called AEROPLANE and the same hindu myth/mythology MAHABHARTA mentions about Doordarsn THE TELEVISION. The same vedas mention about earth revolving around sun, about GALAXY…. GITA mentioning anu the atoms from which even great scientisit like EINSTEIN draw inspiration….dont believe it please read his autobiography…..so WHAT is a myth and WHAT is a realty only time tells. As Aeroplane, and Television …utter and would have been considered mad 200 years before. science for us is what we know till today BUT WHAT WE KNOW TODAY MAY NOT BE THE ONLY OR ‘THE’ TRUTH. shiv upnisad mentions about delivery of baby without wombs WHO KNOWS IT MAY BE A REALTY TOMMOROW atleast we have test tube babies currently

        • Sunil says:

          They can call it anything they like, because we gave away our rights and let them dominate us and accepted their version of history and also are happy to call ourselves “Hindus” when no such name existed. We have no pride at all.

      • Sri Nithya Saguna says:

        Dear Brother,

        I agree with your great explaination.

        Any scientifical advancement is ment for better living standard for living comforts of present and future generation. Hence by learning ancient ethics for better living the Rama story is ever welcoming lession to the present and future generation.

        But stoping construction of bridge at that place is makeing no meaning. It only explains that we have not understood or sometime we do not want understand “the Krishna Upanishad”. i.e. Things which is now called yours will go to others hand and then next like on. Hence change will happen and we have to learn to live with good moral path.

        Human community can take decision and live to suit with nature, but without any basic reason one need not hinder the passage of growth.
        We can say it is an evolutionary process. We may stop today keeping the reason to witness ancient idendity, but there are strong possibilities for existing seabed geological change by a turbulant sea flow. Already it has lost its identity by merging into sea.

        Meanwhile we can think of and build a parralel bridge with sea route using latest technology. The ancient monument can also be maintained as it there.

        “Ohm Ram Nam Sathye hey”

        I would like to pray RaMaji to come again to build the bridge, because we are not confident about ourselves and only likes the myths….,

      • nilesh says:

        yes the western people will say like that. thanks god we have a holy book names gita mentioning the bridge created by that time. almost 1,750,000 years ago. don’t come to those western people because they are themselves foolish. it doesn’t matter for me if they believe or not. our proof is bhagwat gita. i wonder if the western people will say that they have built that. 1 more proof is that the rocks is floating in the name of SRI RAM. not the western name. western people eats shit i must say.

      • Kartik says:

        Well said

      • Sri lankan says:

        they used the name adams to the Shripadaya… where the load Buddha food print was placed for all gods. no one cant change our history. we have written history. this brig cant be adams brig…

      • a person says:

        it is not good to say bad about indians

  2. udaya says:

    for all we know it could be science fiction too. like the mention of the atom, or the anu in tamil by thiruvalluvar. the author of the ramayana must have heard the legends of the place which must have included mention of a bridge linking lanka and india, perhaps there was a real bridge earlier which sunk when the sea rose, but the legend stayed on. the author could have used this story to provide a setting for his story. it happens all the time, authors being far ahead of their times, where logically it is possible.

    I would have been convinced had valmiki wrote that there would be a material that is semiconducting and used in electronics, but such things cannot be guessed, while a laser or an aeroplane can be guessed by even a child.

    The primary theme of the day was that of spirit, and it is perhaps proper that a legend arose around the spiritual realm.

    one should understand that by then india was a agrarian economy, settled into ints ways with liesure for its people, a lot of people did have the food and facility to go into spirituality research and by all accounts they did

    just because the bridge is mentioned does not improve the ramayana which is itself a good epic….

    and probably nothing more

    • Govindarajan says:

      This is of course, based on your own assumption that the Ramayana is a myth. However, I seriously do not consider that viewpoint. Valmiki clearly states that whatever he has recorded is history, and not an allegory.

      Why should we believe that? Because, by analysing the text, one can glean many philosophical truths of an extremely high order. For instance,

      - Sita in Lanka represents the Jivatma in Samsara.

      - The Rakshasis who tortured Her represent the dangers of Samsara.

      - Ravana represents the material body that the samsaric Jiva is associated with (the 10 heads refer to te indriyas). One should yearn for release from this body.

      - Hanuman represents the acharya sent by the Lord to free us from samsara.

      - The ring that Sita gave to Hanuman represents the guru parampara that a jivatma should follow. For instance, in Ramanuja parampara, we follow Sri Manavala Mahamuni, whose acharya is Pillai Lokacharya, who in turn is a sishya of Vadakku Thiruveedhi Pillai, and so on….this parampara ultimately leads to the ‘mula’ acharya Sri Ramanuja. Similarly, Hanuman is the first acharya whom the guru parampara leads us to.

      - Sri Rama is the Lord who then liberates us by destroying our body, just as He destroyed Ravana to save Sita.

      Many more truths exist in this text. Now, people may be inclined to take all this as allegory and not history. But by reading all this, one comes to the conclusion that Valmiki was a jnani. And he claims that this is history. By logic, one accepts that a jnani does not lie.

      So, in my humble opinion, the Ramayana is a historical account of Lord Rama’s descent, where He demonstrated the philosophical truths of the Veda, using the killing of Ravana as an excuse. One cannot ‘appreciate’ the epic and call it ‘good’ without accepting the words of a jnani, that it is a historical work.

      Dasan,

      Govindarajan.

      • i am agree with you , thank you very much .

      • Pravin says:

        I am also agree with you, thanks from heart to u and Somiya for leaving comment.

      • Jayesh Sarswat says:

        Dude you might have a read a lot about mythology, but just think logically for a moment, these things happened about how many years back ? mahabharat is dated back to 5000 years back, that is during the kuru or kaurava dynasty period, which is also called vedic period, accordingly, a yuga earlier that is about 4.7 million years earlier, there wasn’t any human life form on this planet, in sri lanka itself, first human race started about 1.75 million years ago. I mean all this is just to popularise the religion, just like the church did once, and it still does, like the bible was crafted out by vote and not just fallen from heaven, just read about the time each yuga goes on for, read about what a kalp and a maha-kalp is, i’am sure you will laugh at all these myths after that, atleast i do…

        • Mahendra says:

          If Shiva came on this earth about 7000 years ago(according to some calculations) and Krishna about 3500/5000 years ago, how is it possible that the Ramayan is about 1700.000 years old. In the Ramayan Shiva is mentioned…and in the Mahabharat story Ram is mentioned….That means the epic Ramayan is written between the era of Shiva and the era of Krishna. Don’t believe anything blindly…Our mind and brains are more capable then that…

      • Jayesh Sarswat says:

        And for the record, there are rocks which float on water, pumice, or volcanic rocks, i’am sure you are aware that the earth was a giant mass of land and water, when all the continents were joined, later due to continental drift the land masses drifted away. This bridge could be a result of such a drift, if it wasn’t for continental drift we couldv’e walked to australia. When the first humans in sri lanka ever, used this bridge to reach there, it cannot be created by some one else.

        • Gaurav_Khattri Punjabi says:

          Mr. Jayesh Sarswat,

          I think your argument and of all the nay-sayers flies in your face. Do you realize that it is a shoal’s bridge which is a man made construction as exemplified and verified by NASA and also by ASI. So it is NOT a result of any tectonic drift.

          Request you to hold your perception when you are not completely aware of all the facts. I am not saying that Ramsetu once existed or not. That is not the point here. But some silly INDIANS just make up their mind even before all facts are out. Thats the reason for the failure of the nation becomes of you Indians.

          Even one of the starting verses in Rg veda says: He who in the highest heaven is the ruler of this universe, He knows, or He does not

          • nilesh says:

            yes i totally agree with you Mr. Gaurav_Khattri. some people don’t believe it because they are atheist. 2 proof says that it is in the era of treta yuga.

        And this is not soch dear this is truth which was mention in Ramayan years ago and now NASA find it.

    • neetu pokra says:

      this is a ridicule comment by udaya. if he is not beleiving ramayana then he should also not beleive the existence of his parents. pathetic.

    • sourabh nigam says:

      iam totally unagree with you udaya…..infact it’s not for all those people who don’t just thurst god.

  3. J. ANIL KUMAR GUPTA says:

    Its great to see the pictures released by NASA. I am thankful to them its a best example who did not beleive god. In world so many scientists are there prove them what is it really ? We are discovered many things what about this ?
    I really saw this place when i am in ayaapa swamy diksha at that time i saw that RAMA STONES that GREAT to watch there weight is like ordinary stone but when it is leaving in to water it is floating. It is really mindblowing to see that types of incidents in my life.

    • J. ANIL KUMAR GUPTA says:

      BE PROUD TO BE INDIAN that it has been proved God stays a long peroid in this place……………………………..

    • Beth T. says:

      Hi Anil!!!!!!!!!!!!
      There are stones that float, they are volcanic, called ‘pumice’…I don’t know if they will float until they absorb water, or not. Yes, they are heavy like a boat is heavy, and some are light in weight, because of differences in density. We know that a boat floats because it displaces water, unless it takes on water and then it usually stops floating. Hopefully near shore if people are on…

      • Deepak Rana says:

        Yes Beth I agreed with you but you did not checked. that time it was many yers ago. no one can understood what is density nor which material will float in water.so we have to accpet this truth.

        • Dakshata says:

          No deepika…

          I am sorry but I am having a laugh here..Density???
          A lot more than density and physics is already written in Vedas!

        • Satya says:

          Mr. Beth that floating stones was created by the power of lord Rama then only unless no one stone can float in water.

      • chandra prakash says:

        Mr.Beth, any material in the world will have some period of time to float on water and after that particular period of time material will not be floating, but this RAM-SETU stone is still floating from past 17 lakh years ago and surely it will continue bcoz of the power by LORD RAMA

      • RABINDRANATH PADHI says:

        try walking on a floating pumice you will fall and sink and nowhere in India we have pumice in such large quantity to build anything

    • Jason says:

      This is yet another example of Hindus trying to prove scientifically that their foolish religion is legitimate. But what is really happening is that the primitive, uneducated Indian people cannot understand how science works so they assume everything is the result of their gods and magic and demons.

      Please, use your head. Think. A BOAT is far heavier than many rocks, yet it FLOATS! WOW! MAGIC! WEIGHT is not what causes a rock to sink. Volcanic rocks have AIR POCKETS. Holding air makes them buoyant. That makes them float. I can do the same thing with the rocks in my garden because they are volcanic.

      Have you ever put a coconut in the water? They must be magical and created by hindu gods because they float as well. So does wood. A giant tree that weighs more than a house will also float, being much heavier than most rocks.

      I beg you to please get an education and learn how to think logically.

      • Jaman says:

        Science, religion and miracles were intertwined in ancient india. Teachers and scholars called it science while others called it miracles. Its the same all over the world. Just because something or someone was called divine did not mean there was no science behind it\them. But it did mean that they were familiar with the scientific properties (maybe not principles behind them) and were able to leverage them. Ancient Indians (and folks generally all over the world) were able to do things which currently could not explained by many folks. The non-rusting iron is a good example which was a mystery for a long time (and has existed for ever) and was explained by scientists this decade. I am not a big believer in miracles but do believe that people had different technology 100s of years back and in some cases it could have been more advanced than the crap we get out today.

        • Dr. R. L. Banerjee, D, Sc, (Sorbonne) says:

          That idiot Jason is a stupid white-head, he does not know the fact that the number of hindus who can teach science to fools like him for decades, is much larger than the whole population of his country whatever it is.

          • vijender says:

            very well said sir ,, now he got a good reply.

            as we know they feel jealous form our ancient culture and wisdom .
            thanks sir..

          • Saratoga says:

            That you Dr. R.L. for your response to Jason, who makes me (a westerner) red in the face with shame for lack of respect and understanding of anything outside his realm of condescension to other nations, beliefs and possibilities. I only learned of this recently and know my consciousness is ready to take major leaps in historical knowledge. I embrace it and will find my copy of the Gita and read it with new eyes. I have an interest is staying current with plans to dredge the sea in this area and hope something can be done to stop what is often called progress covering a face of greed. I look forward to reading all comments but could go no further without thanking you for speaking up to Jason’s big headedness (American slang for a know-it-all ego based person.)

        • sarada says:

          Yes, Jason, Bingo!! knowingly or unknowingly you have proved the whole point, being disscussed here and every where for decades now.
          Yes, the RamaSethu or Adam’s bridge if made by human is an Excelent Engineering marvel especially at that time (as we tend to under estimate most of the ancient theories).Can anyone tell me where did the word Science or SCIENTIST, originated? And then the word GOD originated? Has anybody come from the past or some fictitious place as u call it have come to us defined that this is MIRACLE and this SCIENTIFIC? Untill a thing is proven it always remains Miracle to the mere Human Being. (it very much might be the case that the then human being used to call a scientist -the meaning of the word god or science as miracle; viz. the most basic questions took centuries and 100s of lives –To Prove That The Earth Revolves Around The SUN.)You or me cannot take the credit of being a logical thinking man just because we have read books written by other scientists. Being logical is good and offcourse a necessity too, but being an ignorant and just like that cursing others for something which is yet to be proven will never be accepted by any human being on Earth. The Hair Line difference is between to be PROUD (Garva) and EGOISTIC (Ahankara).
          On top of that this has nothing to do with a RELIGION being Legitimate or Intelligent. The very concept of a religion is beyond this. Eg. To rule a country there is Democracy and also Monarchy both having logical and illogical sides, because the Ministers are never chosen the way the officers at high Administrative posts.

          • Uma from Sri Lanka says:

            The reality is modern science cannot explain everything because the lack of it’s knowledge. In here Sri Lanka has an expression “Sinhalaya Ahasa usata dagab haduve sudda kola athu andina kale” meaning, Sinhala people was made huge tallest pagodas when western foolish white people use plant leaves to hide there naked body, it means they were just trappers. It’s right because we had many kind of scientific knowledge even at that ancient times… and should say India also had those… So be proud of your birth and try to find that hidden knowledge of yours. I’m not telling that surely this is Sri Ram’s bridge but it may possible… And Jason you should understand that asian people not foolish but white mans are foolish. The most intelligent scientists in world first universities are many times asian also indian. And if not white foolish man did not destroy eastern countries by colonialism this bright people will not undemanding their ancient knowledge. And it couldn’t be bible also true it’s also a more and more great myth than others . But it is made of your brilliant white mans. Isn’t it Jason…?

      • Saurabh says:

        Who the Hell do you think you are Jason to call Hindu religion as “Foolish Religion”. Your words and language suggest that you are highly influenced by the recently developed western civilization, which 1000 years ago use to be a backward culture. No individual in this world is great enough and big enough to address any religion with these derogative words. Just to let you know dude when people in England use to live in Jungles and hunt for food people in India were using Lavatory and canal system for irrigation. Cities, townships, roads, and brick built houses were common, to say that ancient Indian were having a very developed culture would not be wrong (Please read history to Validate). Now Lets talk about Logic and Science, in India we have 6 dept. of philosophy which are based on Logical Conclusions. We have the most ancient reading on Astrology, Chemistry and Biology. Vedantic Mathematics is as old as Veda itself, which is very advanced and highly respected worldwide. I have gone through other comments and do feel that people don’t have good knowledge about Hinduism. Firstly please do your homework before you start and make comments about any subject or religion. I am a scientific person myself and I do believe in what I see, but that should not mean I become arrogant, judgmental and partial in my view. When Christens came to India and talked about Science they said everything is wrong about Hinduism. While today it’s well know fact how scientific our discipline of medicine and Yoga was and the world is practicing it. We had colleges and Universities in India talking about science and religion even before Christ took birth. The depth and extent of intellectual advancement can be easily understood by the fact that it talks about tolerance, peace and harmony. In India Buddhism & Jainism was tolerated and practiced by people and they had option to choose (6 centuries before the Christ was born). Even recently Zoroastrianism is a religion only practiced in India and Hindus did help them or it would have been vanquished by Islam. Even Islam and Christianity came to India and were accepted. Unlike religions countries practicing Islam and Christianity were you cannot even think about other religion getting practiced just a couple of centuries back!!
        What we have come across is surely a bridge no doubt on that and it’s true that it is mentioned in Ramayana about creation of this bridge. Worldwide Scientists do study these religious books to understand the ancient culture as they are considered records of event during that time. Hinduism is most ancient religion to be practiced currently in the world. Let the research go on and time shall speak for itself as what is right and what is wrong about the bridge. Everything written in scriptures may not necessarily be true and they might not necessarily be false. Religious books have said about this bridge ages back and scientist have found it today, same has been the case with the ancient city of Dwarika, whose ruins are getting excavated on the shores of Gujarat. Again the same was mentioned in another epic called Mahabharata.

          well said mate the hindu culture is well and the food is very good for body and spirit.

          • in my opinion we should respect every culture….. it doesn’t matter they do or not but we should… and we r not Indians and all. we r good human beings first….i think it is enough that we belive in god who ever they are but we belive in them strongly… that is it

          I dont want to say much however for me believing in my religion ( Hinduism)is like believing in my existance in this world. You are so right Saurabh, i dont know you but your reply to Jason is perfect.

          Jason, I think u should work on your facts before commenting on any religion because what i feel is that you are too comsumed with your own thoughts that you have started neglecting everyhting else in this world, i would request you to ask this question from people in US and other countries who are already following my religion.
          All religions are important. God bless everyone. OM NAMAH SHIVAY.

          Way to go Saurabh, Jason is just another one of those who dosen’t look before he leaps, not educated enough to know that what was found was not by the indian people but by NASA so if he want’s to call some one a liar there he goes, who needs the education now Jason your statement in just showing your prejudice

          totally agree with you Saurabh … Well I am not that good at history but am pround of being an Indian … and this bridge provides proof and emphasizes that myths can transform to history and confirms our beliefs in our origins … btw great reply to Jason … Can’t even figure out if Jason is an indian (by his name) to comment on our culture and religion but would like to say that my parents have embedded me with culture and values, these western cultured people would not even understand nor ever can (some do make an effort though)….and just to let you know, I have stayed abroad for for than 10 years so can definitely judge and make this comment …. Proud to be an Indian and always will :D

      • Baldev says:

        I am shocked with the wordings Jason has used here against the Hindu religion. You need to use your head (and brain if you have it !!!) to think what will you get out of that dirty comments !

        Learn to respect all religions if you can or better keep your stupid sense for your family and friends. You don’t need to bring it over internet.

        Our hindu religion is an ancient culture which also believed by great scientists.And our religion is not foolish.Who are you,giving such answers on net .Who know’s you ,what your culture proves ,thinking of ideas also gives invention and in hindus mostly ideas have came true.For your information rockets,aircrafts, plastic surgery,breating of plants, invention of digit [0] zero like.Only some few examples are given which proves us literated through ancient period the ancient period means about when your where roaming nude [clothless] not knowing to speak that time our religion had improved than you much better and forward than you.for your first question I would like to answer you that is you area explaning about floating of wood, ,trees,volcanic rocks-all these things float on water I know very well.but if it was so much easy and we are illatrate than you then why we created such a huge breeze before you peoples and your stupied religion stealing our IDEAS and giving your MOSTLY SYUPIED<FOOLISH names.Your religion is started just two thousand years ago and very stupied thinks are thought in it .Some times I think how so many pepole followed The stupied Christain religion O’I forgot I am sorry it is true clever are very less And stupied all found around the world i.e you will found clever hindus in india And stupied Christains all around the world.But a good fool like you can follow the christianity because it is huge manufacturer of foolish peoples.

        now hi Jason, i have red ur comment u had said our religion oh i’m sorry all religions[bcoz GOD is one] a “foolish religion” by reading it i got very much sure that u had not ever red RAMAYAN yet &if u had red u had never red it from the bottom of ur heart, the way u read BIBLE but i think i’m wrong ur such type of comment shows that u had not even red BIBLE.Now lets come to the point that, if u ever want to comment our religion please read RAMAYAN first & i’m very much sure that by reading it u will become very much against to the person who ever will show disrespect to our religion.

        • annesa says:

          chuck i agree with you on that opening of your mind to other peoples beliefs and disagreeing with the way jason commented however from readin many comments alot of them are geared towards jason and that he shouln’t express his thoughts in that manner i agree, HE SHOULDN’T, however you all are doing the same thing by speaking of another religion in this case christianity in the way that you did.

        “primitive, uneducated Indian people cannot understand how science works”

        Your comment is highly offensive, and I, as an Indian and proud intellectual, am highly disturbed by this.

        Your point about weight not affecting whether and object floats or not is spot on- congratulations, you have at least mastered middle school chemistry. In fact, your comment about “air pockets” suggests just that- a middle school level of understanding. The word is density, my friend. Rocks, especially those near a shore, are MORE dense than water, hence they sink.

        However, you clearly did not do your research. You continue to go on and on about volcanic rocks- but I have scientific research (which you seem very keen on) on my side, telling me that there were no volcanoes, nor was there any possible source for volcanic rock to have arrived at the particular spot at which the bridge was built.

        Also, Hindu mythology says that through the grace of god, the rocks were able to float only once the name “Shree Ram” was inscribed upon it. Please explain to me how a ‘volcanic’ rock can sink one second, then float the next.

        You seem to forget that as a RELIGION, certain things must be taken on faith. I’ll go on a limb here and assume that you are Christian (if I’m wrong, then please forgive this assumption- I don’t mean to offend). Christians believe that Jesus could walk on water, or that he turned water into wine, or that he was resurrected, for crying out loud. Please try to give me a scientific explanation for each of these things. Even if you give me some story about the shoes he was wearing being extra buoyant or something, it doesn’t change the fact that the word RELIGION implies that you must take a certain amount on faith.

        That being said, please try to be more tolerant of other people’s religions. Just because you are not Hindu does not mean that all Hindus are automatically uneducated or whatever derogatory terms you called us. I would not go so far as to make demands, as I’m sure it will go unfulfilled, but I think you owe us all an apology.

        And for your reference, in case you try to label me as uneducated, I am a doctor of medicine, and I live in the USA. I have received 20 years schooling, and I minored in Hindu religion. I know what I’m talking about, and I have my facts straight.

        Your sarcastic tone does not endear you, nor does it help to enforce your point. I suggest that in future, stick to actual facts to prove your point, rather than making opinion-based insults.

        Your reply is awaited with all due eagerness.

        • why demon king ,muslim , british and now more theft our welth and more gold and why muslim destroy our all old hindu temple thats all knows …. , all other country knows we cant fight with hindu bcs they are more powerfull , but they want to defit us emotionally . but that they dont all hindu are kind heart , clean heart , our god also told us in gita we all are son of god , so they are thinking indian are weak , but they dont know our one person equall to there 10 person . hindustam jindabad . lekin nehi kahunga dusra country murdabad bcs hum hamara desh ko maa mante hain sab hindu mante hain maa sabka hi maa hota hain lekin tumhare country main maa ko biwi bhai mante hain this is your culture , hamare maa ko puja karte hain maa keliye jaan bhi de sakte hain aur le bhi sakte hain , aur tum nastik ke ware main kiya main bolu tumhare father 1 hota to tum samjhte but tumhare father 10 hotehain but hamare sirf ek hi father hain he hum unhe ( god ) mante hain lekin tumhare 10000 bap hote hain ish liye tum sab sale saitam ke bete ho . jai hind tumhare samjah main nehi ata to ( pls ush nastik ko samjh main ana chahiye aur ish ko english main translation kar dijiye ) ur name is like indian but ur artitude is like demon .

          Chetana Ji,
          your comment is perfect and balanced. i am completely agree with you.
          In my opinion Mr Jason has recieved sufficient treatment, and we must forgive him.
          As far as i understood sanatana dharma, it is very generous and accepts all the views and thoughts even if those are against there basic roots. For example take Chruvak darshan and Brihaspati darshan. These two philosophical streams were purely materialistic and atheist even then we were tolerant to them.
          Jason behaved like a child and already recieved more than required for his act, now we should forgive him. as Sri Krishna says for a true yogi ‘Maan’ and ‘apmaan’ is same.

        Wow, really?

        I think you’re forgetting that 90% of the smart, achieving people in the US are Indian and Asian. Yeah, those primitive, uneducated Indian people are topping the country.

      • Panchajanya says:

        Dear Jason,

        Go get a life!

        I think Hindus and Hinduism has been far more receptive to science than any other religion. Galileo and other stalwarts were threatened to life by the Church for saying obvious things like the earth is not flat:)

        Einstein and Oppenheimer spoke Sanskrit. Oppenheimer knew Bhagvad Gita so well that he chanted verse 10.20 when the power of destruction was unleashed. He even has told that the explosion witnessed was the first nuclear explosion known to ‘this’ mankind, clearly indicating that he believed Arjuna indeed unleashed the Brahmastra during the Mahabharata war.

        In his lectures, Carl Sagan, the legendary cosmologist, speaks that only Hinduism of all cultures, offers the timescales (measured in Yugas) suitable for calculating the time since big-bang. He used the analogy of ‘Cosmic dance of Shiva’, to explain the continuous cycle of Big Bang and big crunch.

        The Hindu calendar (Panchangam) is more accurate than the gregorian calendar and offers finer units of measurement than the gregorian calendar. Any household lady in India will tell you how minute the timescales can be.

        Mahabharata is the only real ‘epic’. Its more than 10 times bigger than Illyad and Odyssey put together. Homer is indeed modest when pitted against Vyasa.

        Everybody knows Aryabhatta is the father of the modern day algebra by inventing a new number system and the zero. Infact, he went on to explain that there are 2 kinds of zeros. One is ‘Poojyam’ and other is ‘Shoonyam’. Poojyam is a nothing created by algebraic subtraction like 2-2 = 0. Shoonyam is the ‘absolute nothing’.

        So I dont know what you are trying to talk. You can embrace Hinduism not just for religious purpose but for knowledge also.

        Stupid Jason your dads dads dad is a Hindu who believed in this truth. So don’t blabber about Hinduism because you yourself is one Hindu. Calling yourself mad and illogical is very stupid yar. NASA is anyway not stupid like you…thats for sure !!! Jesus gave sight to blind 2000years ago, any ordinary hospital can provide the same today in 15 minutes. does that mean jesus is nothing but an ordinary guy. Science cannot prove many things. If there is a structure photographed by NASA and the same is mentioned in a story written 10000 years before, there is truth in that. Give me one scientific evidence of at least one instance that jesus had done in bible??

        Jason, No Hindu is attributing the floating rock as God’s miracle… All these people are happy to have found the traits of an ancient man-made bridge..And hello!! we know porous rock floats..This ancient bridge was built with porous rock for the king and his followers to walk to Srilanka.

        When other continents languished with no civilisation, we had toilets and drinage systems in Mohenjadaro… Well now unfortunately, the white world is the first-world country, and we have become third-world.

        Comment
        From Hugh Joseph
        10-12-2

        Hi Jeff…

        I read the story headlined above with great interest. This is a story of major significance, as understanding its implications will turn the entire world of Science and History on its head. This bridge, according to accounts in the Ramayana and the Srimad-Bhagavatam, was constructed in the age know as Treta, over 2 million years ago.

        How did the writers without super space-ranging satellites know about the existence of this bridge? In these ancient accounts, written over 5,000 years ago, we find discussions of, among other things, space travel, inter planetary travel, what we call UFOs and what we mistakenly call ETs. This is not only the History of the planet Earth, but also of this Universe, (a mediocre universe among many millions of universes.)

        Here one can also learn the real undisguised and uncontaminated truth about God. Our man-made religions are of little or no value when compared to the stunning and breathtaking revelations found in the pages of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, Ramayan, Bhagavad-gita, etc.

        I hope you will publish this comment for the benefit of your readers.
        Thank you for the great work you are doing.

        Hugh Joseph

        For your readers, here is the way the “Srimad Bhagavatam” describes the event:

        Text 22
        nara-devatvam apannah
        sura-karya-cikirsaya
        samudra-nigrahadini
        cakre viryany atah param

        Translation:

        “In the eighteenth incarnation (of Lord Krishna), the Lord appeared as King Rama. In order to perform some pleasing work for the demigods, He exhibited superhuman powers by controlling the Indian Ocean and then killing the atheist King Ravana, who was on the other side of the sea”.

        Purport
        (by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada)

        The Personality of Godhead Sri Rama assumed the form of a human being and appeared on the earth for the purpose of doing some pleasing work for the demigods, or the administrative personalities, to maintain the order of the universe. Sometimes great demons and atheists like Ravana and Hiranyakasipu and many others become very famous due to advancing material civilization by the help of material science and other activities, with a spirit of challenging the established order of the Lord. For example, the attempt to fly to other planets by material means is a challenge to the established order. The conditions of each and every planet are different, and different classes of human beings are accommodated there for particular purposes mentioned in the codes of the Lord. But, puffed up by tiny success in material advancement, sometimes the godless materialists challenge the existence of God. Ravana was one of them, and he wanted to deport ordinary men to the planet of Indra (heaven) by material means without consideration of the necessary qualifications. He wanted a staircase to be built up directly reaching the heavenly planet so that people might not be required to undergo the routine of pious work necessary to enter that planet. He also wanted to perform other acts against the established rule of the Lord. He even challenged the authority of Sri Rama, the Personality of Godhead, and kidnapped His wife, Sita. Of course Lord Rama came to chastise this atheist, answering the prayer and desire of the demigods. He therefore took up the challenge of Ravana, and the complete activity is the subject matter of the “Ramayana”. Because Lord Ramachandra was the Personality of Godhead, He exhibited superhuman activities which no human being, including the materially advanced Ravana, could perform. Lord Ramacandra prepared a royal road on the Indian Ocean with stones that floated on the water. The modern scientists have done research in the area of weightlessness, but it is not possible to bring in weightlessness anywhere and everywhere. But because weightlessness is the creation of the Lord by which He can make the gigantic planets fly and float in the air, He made the stones even within this earth to be weightless and prepared a stone bridge on the sea without any supporting pillar. That is the display of the power of God.

        (Srimad-Bhagavatam First Canto, Chapter 3, text 24, 1972)

        Here’s the account from the “Ramayana” of Sage Valmiki:

        “At Rama’s command, those lions among the monkeys entered the mighty forest with alacrity in hundreds and thousands on every side and those leaders on the simian tribes, tearing up the rocks, which in size they resembled, and the trees also dragged them to the sea and they covered the ocean with Sala, Ashvararna, (list of tree names).Those foremost monkeys transported those trees, with or without roots, bearing them like so many standards of Indra (the king of heaven) and they heaped (list of tree names) here and there. With the aid of mechanical devices, those powerful colossi dug up stones as big as elephants and rocks, and the water suddenly spouted into the air only to fall instantly. Thereafter those monkeys churned up the sea by rushing into it on all sides pulling on the chains.

        “That immense causeway constructed by Nala in the bosom of the sea was built by the arms of those monkeys of formidable exploits and it extended over a hundred leagues.

        “Some brought trunks of trees and others set them up; it was by hundreds and thousands that those monkeys, like unto giants, made use of reeds, logs and blossoming trees to construct that bridge, rushing hither and thither with blocks of stone resembling mountains or the peaks of crags, which, flung into the sea, fell with a resounding crash.

        “The first day those monkeys resembling elephants, or immense energy, full of high spirits and exceedingly merry, erected fourteen leagues of masonry. The second day, those highly active monkeys of formidable stature set up twenty leagues. Bestirring themselves, those giants threw twenty-one leagues of structure over the ocean on the third day and on the fourth, working feverishly, they built up twenty-two leagues in extent. The fifth day, those monkeys, industrious workers, reached to twenty-three leagues distance from the further shore.

        “That fortunate and valiant son of Vishvakarma (architect of the demigods), leader of the monkeys, constructed a causeway worthy of his sire over the ocean and that bridge erected by Nala over the sea, the haunt of whales, dazzling in its perfection and splendor, was like the constellation of Svati in space.

        “Then the gods, Gandharvas, Siddhas (living beings superior to humans) and supreme Rishis (great sages) assembled in the sky, eager to see that masterpiece, and the gods and Gandharvas gazed on that causeway, so difficult of construction, that was ten leagues in width and a hundred in length built by Nala.

        “Those monkeys thereafter dived, swam and shouted at the sight of that unimaginable marvel that was almost inconceivable and caused one to tremble! And all beings beheld that causeway thrown over the ocean and by hundreds and thousands of kotis (millions), those monkeys, full of valor, having built that bridge over the immense repository of waters, reached the opposite shore.

        “Vast, well-constructed, magnificent with its wonderful paved floor, solidly cemented, that great causeway like unto a line traced on the waves, resembled the parting of a woman’s hair.

        “Meanwhile Bibishana (brother of Ravana who joined Rama), mace (club) in hand, held himself ready at his post with his companions in case of an enemy attack. Thereafter Sugriva addressed Rama, who was valiant by nature, saying “Mount on the shoulders of Hanuman and Laxmana (brother of Rama) on those of Angada. O Hero, vast is this ocean, the abode of whales; those two monkeys who freely range the sky will transport you both.”

        “Then the fortunate Rama and Laxmana advanced thus and that magnanimous archer was accompanied by Surgriva. Some monkeys strode forward in the center, some threw themselves into the waves, some sprang into the sky, others marched on the bridge, some ranged through space like birds, and the terrific tumult of the trampling of that formidable army of monkeys drowned the roar of the ocean.

        “When those simian troops had passed over the sea by the grace of Nala’s causeway, the king ordered them to camp on the shore which abounded in roots, fruits and water.

        At the sight of that masterpiece that had materialized under the command of Raghava (another name of Lord Rama), despite the difficulties, the gods, who had drawn near with the Siddhas and Charanas as also the great Rishis, anointed Rama in secret there, with water form the sea, and said: “Mayest thou be victorious over thy foes, O Thou, who are a God among men! Do Thou rule over the earth and the sea eternally!”

        Thus in various auspicious words, did they acclaim Rama in the midst of the homage offered to him by the Brahmins.”

        (The Ramayana of Valmiki, Yuddha Kanda)

        Note: Lord Krsna’s incarnation Rama, appeared as a human being because only a human being could kill Ravana, due to certain benedictions that he had been given.

        Note: The monkeys mentioned here as comprising Rama’s army, were not ordinary monkeys. They were in fact greatly powerful demigods who appeared on this earth to assist the Lord in his pastime of subduing this atheistic demon, Ravana.

        Note: There are 4 ages, or yugas, rotating through time like the 4 seasons: Satya, 1,800,000 yeas long; Dvarapa, 1,200,000 years long, Treta, 800,000 years long and Kali, 432,000 years long. In this most recent yuga cycle, the Dvarapara and Treta yugas were reversed. This event took place about 2 million years ago.

        dear Jason,
        I think u hv forgotten dat we Indians taught d world how to count bcoz v invent ’0′, after dat ur science started calculations and our Indian Vedic culture is so rich dat u nd evn ur science cant think of it.
        Last bt not d least, ur science is originated 4m our Vedas nd it’s(science) is very tiny part of it.
        Hope this is enough 4 u nd may God bless u with d power so dat u cn feel n understand His mercy.

      • Jake says:

        Hey Jason, I tink its not ryt of You to condemn the religion. Coz the science you have learnt is was mentioned way much earlier in the vedas. In which the vedas were scriptured way before Human became educated.

      • Raj says:

        Idiot!! It was mentioned in the Ramayana way before your ass was born. Nasa discovered it recently. Our belief was not based on NASA’s discovery or our holy book did not appear after the discovery. Get your facts straight and concentrate schooling your foolish ass.

      • Dianna says:

        On the contrary Jason, it is YOU who needs an education and perhaps a lesson on ignorance. It is because of people like yourself that diminishes the human spirit.

        The Hindu culture and religion is one of the oldest there are in the world. If you even had half a brain, you would realize that Indians are one of the very many races who have advanced science and technology. That is more than I can say about a pea brain like yourself.

        • Jack says:

          Very correct Dianna, India is one of the most rapidly advancing countires in the world, with population and especially with science and technology

      • Nilanchal says:

        Some idiots think that they can understand science better. But idiots do not know that before 17000 years a belive on god was there & fore fathers of idiots also belving in god. today we may call it science but can anybody say why so many volcanic rocks (as described by idiots) are assembled to use a bridge. the population of that time was not too much that they were looking for a new place or food. Some thing was there that they made that bridge & the the story not written in aday or two after nasa flashes the news. The same belive is existing since thousand of years & if the ame is going to prove today, some foolish & idiots renaming the same as science. If so then we can say the people of that time were a gretest scientists who discovered the way forming of a bridge & made an example for modern science. We proud of our fore fathers great scientists of there times who discovered “Puspak” the ancient version of Modern airtranport system,etc………… But some idiots think……………….

      • Gautam says:

        hello Mr.jason
        we are not foolish. Just we are trying to say how much intelligent peoples are there at the time 17lakh yrs old… just imagine in that time how many countries find such type of stones… we are written ramayana mahabharatham… at lakhs yrs old we are already proved my brains… just now you people traying to say we are genious but real genious are indians.. we learnt so many countries how to leave like humans… we people find science already without books, and now a day equipments,… if you want to think about indians..just read ramayana, mahabarata.. you will know indian brain… Till now nasa also didn,t find some miracles but so many yrs old indians found… we given so many good peoples like budha to other countries. you in nasa scientist 13% people are indians… Before comment on indians just study indians….

      • suleman says:

        Jason! Where does LOGIC comes from? Read the RAMAYANA and you will come across JABALI a savant in the court of the King Dasratha.
        You do not understand what is science yet you in the West you talk about science.

        The Abrahamic religions are based on superstition, crimes,tortures,etc..
        You know full well that when the HINDU NUMERALS reached Europe through the Arabs, the catholic church said that these numerals were the inventions of SATAN and whoever used them to count or keep records were punished. The eclipse was thought to be a sign of the end of the world by the Mohameddans and so on.

        When you were in utter darkness India and its neighbour Persia had universities. How can you misjudge the Indians? It it were not India, the West would still be in absolute backwardness.

        At least ponder on the way that you pray god( which is imaginary):OUR FATHER THOU ART IN HEAVEN, PARDON OUR SINS, GIVE US OUR DAILY BREAD,etc.. There is nothing as laughable as that prayer.

        Go and enlighten yourself, imbecile!

        TRY TO KNOW WHAT MAX MULLER AND OTHER CHRISTIAN SCHOLARS AND OTHER CHIRISTIAN SCIENTISTS LIKE EINSTIEN SAID ABOUT HINDUISM AND THEN YOU WILL SAY YOUR CHRISTIANITY IS MYTH.

        DO YOU KNOW JESUS WAS ROMAN CREATION AND CHRISTIANITY IS EGYPTIAN MYTH.

        ‘You see the world not as it is, but as you are’

        Maybe it is time for Jason to honestly look at how he views himself. There have existed many wonderful men in this world, and all of them has had to deal with the skeptical mind Jason embodies now. The eyes cannot see reality, as we as human beings cannot perceive 90% of all matter. So what if there is a reality, or an infinitude of realities that go beyond what our mind can comprehend? Also, Jason, Indian scholar, be they Hindu or Vedic have been renown for their knowledge and intellectual ability. You may want to check your facts before speaking my friend, even if it is on a site many ‘brown’ people frequent.

      • TheMonkeyStan says:

        Perhaps, before calling Indians uneducated, you should look into their history and not post comments blindly, stupid. They were the ones that created the numbers from 0-9. They created plastic surgery. They created the toilet system. They knew about gravity before Newton. They knew about electricity and what it can do. They predicted that in the future there would be flying-machines (airplanes) and they even drew the structure of a modern-day airplane. They created a 30km bridge using SHOAL. Are barking mad!! How can you call them uneducated!? They created meditation – that’s how they became smart. If you are Athiest, why target us? If you’re Christian (no offense to Christians) then how can a man walk on water and turn a bread and fish into multiple bread and fish.

        Look sir,

        The Hindu religion is not foolish. You simply just do not understand its complexity. The story says that Rama’s name was inscribed onto the rocks making them float. Now as you point out they were probably volcanic. The Hindu religion mixes legend and magic with science… I’m quite sure the people in the ancient times were aware of the scientific properties of the rocks allowing hem to float. They were very advanced in sciences and maths, coming up with concepts like zero and I believe there is a description of the world being round in the Vedas….

        People all over the world mix folklore and legend with fact. This is true in almost every civilization.

        I’n not Hindu myself (I’m Christian), but I do believe their religion is legitimate and certainly has some facts about human origin and sciences since it is one of the oldest religions around today. We just have to separate fiction and facts and I’m certain most of it is fact.

          Great!..I am also christian and believing Hindu history as 100%.

  4. Govind says:

    if the stones were floating at that time, they should float even today, (that is law of physics ) why are they not floating today, why is that they are sunk inside, there is somethng more to be investigated.

    • J. ANIL KUMAR GUPTA says:

      Govind sir stones were floating at that time this time also . I went overthere
      last year this time in ayyappa swamy diksha you to go and see sir…………. You can see it Dwaraka temple is also under the water sir .

    • Jason says:

      Govind, please educate yourself before you speak. There is no law of physics that says “If a stone was floating in the past it must be floating today.” If the hindus interpreted the floating stones as floating magically, then it would be a miracle and thus outside of the laws of science altogether. But if they were floating, as volcanic rocks do because they contain pockets of air, then they may be floating today unless they have filled with water and sunk.

      Why do indians keep trying to sound scientific and logical, as if to legitimize hinduism, when hinduism itself is unscientific and illogical? If you are going to use science then quote an actual scientific law, not one that you invented.

      • Jaman says:

        Hinduism is one of the most scientific and logical religions. Infact i feel it is more logical and scientific than most other religions. Just because you do not have the inclination to study thouroughly what hinduism is all about does not make you an expert on the matter. I try to keep myself informed of all and believe what I feel is right for me. There are things in cristianity, hinduism, islam, buddhism, jainism, shintoism which makes sense. there are somethings which dont. believe what you want to believe. beleieve what you need to believe. But rather than claiming xyz is crap, try to get a firm understanding of what makes sense and what doesnt.

      • SIVAKUMAR says:

        This is not volcanic stone and all. This is floating in the water is just because of lord rama’s power. This is not science and all. One day u will come to know there are more power apart from science. Look up the sky atleast for 5 minutes. There are several things in this world ur science can’t answer.

      • sachin says:

        Is this wat u hav been taught in your religion? be a gud christian first..then,u wont b such a barbarian critic towards time tested philosophies..god is not something to b provd..but to b experiencd..christ walkd on water..there is nothing more unscientific than tat in d whole world of religions..but,a deep study of hinduism can teach u tat, by yogic powers, wat christ did was possible! Dont think tat logic & reasoning is the ultimate measure of truth..reality is beyond all tat..may god bless u with knowledge..

        • Panchajanya says:

          Sachin,

          There is a basic difference between Hinduism and other religions. From the time we are born, we are taught to share and coexist. We are never taught ill of other religions but its clearly written in Chritianity that “if you are not a Christian, then you are a sinner (the adam/eve stuff) and the devil(Satan) as consumed you”.

          From the time of their birth, Christians are taught to feel pity on other religions as their souls carry the original sin and this is the basis of conversion and destruction of culture.

          All Hindu rites and rituals are for Loka Kshemam (prosperity to the world) whereas all Christian prayers are for cleansing one’s soul of the sin. The philosophical differnce is that of a mountain and a mole-hill

          It is impossible for other cultures to understand ours even after 100 yrs of life and that according to me is the world’s greatest fallacy.

      • Panchajanya says:

        Just for the heck of it, I can argue like you saying that Western science is never absolute. First someone says Pluto is a planet and all of us read there are 9 planets. Then someone else proves Pluto is not a planet. So why was this not evident earlier, did Pluto shrink?

        Someone in some university called MIT proved that Soya reduces fertility using some stupid lab experiments. How comes the world’s most populous China thrives on Soya? I will tell you the answer. Its because of the Behemoth Monsanto created a stupid variety of genetically modified Soya, which most westerners eat but the weeds and pests dont eat Monsanto Soya because they know that its not ‘food’.

        So your stupid western scientists are feeding you with GM beans and meat washed in Ammonia (yes the dreaded NH4) instead of real food. Why do they have to wash meat with Ammonia? Hell, I will tell you the answer. Its because your screwed up western food system feeds cows with corn and dead chicken instead of grass and hay. This diet led to cows producing a new variety of dirty E-Coli that entered your stupid western food chain. For god’s sake we all know that Cows are herbivores. So why the hell feed them with dead chicken to grow them so fat that they cant even walk. Even the dead chickens in question are genetically modified. Go watch the movie ‘Food Inc’ and take some time off to find out whether you are are also a normal human or genetically engineered?

        So this way I can score more brownies on the west than you can ever imagine scoring against our culture and religion. Now piss off!

        • Katelyn says:

          To all of you, I don’t know much about the Hindu religion but here in the Caribbean, we have a mixture of cultures, races and ethnic groups. I must agree that there is rivalry between the religions which are Christians, Hindus and Muslims but when all the festivals come around that is Christmas, Divali and Eid ul Fitr, we all participate in them. What matters the most is that we must learn to accept everyone, i come from a family where there are all Hindus, Muslims and Christians. Don’t criticise any religion, one day the truth shall be revealed to all believers and non believers so don’t take on this foolish Jason because i happen to be a Christian and am still learning lots about it.

      • Uma from Sri Lanka says:

        Dear Jason,
        Hindusm and Buddhism are the scientific religions on this world… It is accepted by modern science. Great scientist Einstein accepted lord buddha as the most noblest scientist. So what about others like you. That’s why cristians need to destroy both 2 religions. But they can’t. But dear Indians, please forgive this stupid poor Jason, Chystians don’t know and even can’t understand our asian mind and highness of it. Please forgive him it’is the most noble thing we had studied. Modern science is lack of spiritual knowlege… It only knows what can see what can here what can touch what can they understand from its exist laws, theories. This Science based on mathematics. It always use the language of mathematics… but spiritual knowledge’s place is higher than maths because it cannot count how much love, how much frendship. There are no units of love sadness wrath… So how this science understand this spiritual knowledge. So please forgive him and his disability.
        JAY JAY RAM SITHA RAM, JAY SRI RAM…!!!

      • Pradeep says:

        Dr. Banerjee has certainly replied to the stupid comment of Jason. I just want to tell him one thing that e may have studied much of boas and floats. But I suggest him to find some good books on Indian history. He may come to know that most of the new inventions of this modern world are already available in the Ramayana, Mahabharata and Bhagwat Geeta. He may come to know that the people of that time used better technology of communication and weapons than today’s modern self guided missiles and dronas (name after Guru Dronacharya). When India got freedom in 1947 the Rulers took with themselves all the gold and information books on which there are researches going on war scale to touch the results of the technology mentioned in those books.
        All must know that the technology researches in Top countries are more on the Indian vedas rather than any other. Never can anybody find a 100% self guided and auto programmed portable missle that destroys the target and come back to its base. No one should take it in as an exaggeration but it is one of the millions of things that we knew and that unfortunately we could not continue due to Kalyug, otherwise that world must have ended a long time before we are born.
        The Sanskrit, the traditional Indian language is the oldest language ever spoken and written. And it is the most correct and absolutely flawless language, scientists are working on it to be the base of the computers.
        Can anybody tell the exact time of the Hinduism culture and and science. … I think no one. But every modern invention is already mentioned in its books. No one knows how old our tradition and religion is but one definitely knows when Jesus Christ is born…. Even Jesus Christ was put on the cross due to some stubborn. A christian is not a born christian, but a Hindu is.

        Last but not the least for those who are very logical and scientific think tanks.. I want to ask them how can they prove the existence of their great grand fathers. I suppose many of them don’t even know their names and tell me if they really know, how would they prove it? Its only the belief and not the seeing is believing kind. And if it actually is then they must believe the 170000 years old bridge and not just the NASA;s new discovery !!!

  5. Taramattie Rampersaud says:

    A devotee of Shree Satya Saiee Baba from Guyana, who is now residing in India, told us a scientist who is also a devotee of Shree Satya Sai were inspired about the bridge, after which the discovery was made.

    It is truly a magnificent site, and it will definitely renewed and rebuilt the confident of Hindus around the world. For too long, our people have been lead astray, not believing in our Spiritual text. Through the bless of our Lord Shree Satya Saiee Baba, this is made possible, of the ancient history of this great Dharma/Religion.

    • Tara says:

      Tara ji, no one leads us astray unless we permit them to always believe in your dharma even though it can’t all be proven in our lifetime just like this is being proven now but our great great grandchildren will read about other findings.

  6. Beth T. says:

    Question about the shoal/bridge between India and Sri-Lanka: I wonder why a bridge needed to be built when there was probably a natural land-bridge, and at that time standing above the water. The water in that area may have been one of the shallow seas that Geologists have stated existed so long ago. Also, at 1,700,000 years ago, is there evidence of any peoples having invented rafts or boats? The stated archaeological evidence of human habitation has not been revealed in the news article.

    • sunil says:

      What you are saying is absolutely true…… When there was a land, why one has to build a bridge. If the sea level is going up and in next few years some of the the islands like Maldives wont be seen on the map which are existing today, what has happened in past 1700000 years is that a land has submerged in the water and Idiots think its a bridge.If millions of years old dinosaurs skeleton are found why cant we find the skeletons of those monkeys who build it.After all NASA has not said that the bridge was build with human hands.It was an exaggeration done by Indian Media whose remote is in the hands of BJP, VHP AND BAJRANGDAL.

      • kiran says:

        your name sounds like u r an Indian, im sorry to say this but dont you have shame to speak like that……. there are many evidences to prove the great epic ramayana if you dont know them please go and visit srilanka where you’ll find hundered and ten evidences which you cant even understand and please dont talk like a stupid without knowing anything……..

        Helllo dev anand….u got a nice name….where did it come from…..do u really know the meaning of ur name

  8. Kriban says:

    Just my 2c here, firstly, if you go back in time, you would realize that the entire planet was submerged by water…and around 100 billion years ago earth was massed as one big continent, close to 100 million years ago it split into two which then split again. so by 1.7 million years back, all our continents seen today are very similar at that time. This image seems to be a “man made”, structure. Which stands to reason that although the awesomeness of nature creates amazing objects, the linkage of two land masses with this precision and magnitude is no coincidence. But for those that question the authenticity of this bridge and its origins should make educated guess’s rather than speaking one’s empty and unlearned minds. Who are you to say that this is just a “freak of nature” event? and things like this happen all the time, a i bet you also believe in Nessie and the big foot??? what a joke!!! Scriptures, writings and teachings passed on for thousands of years indicate that this structure has true and valid origins, who are we to question that???
    Secondly who on earth named the bridge???? Adams’s Bridge???
    I think that’s an insult to all Indians, Our culture gets westernized with a name subjected to another religion….I say give credit and appreciation where its deserved!!! DON’T make our religion and triumphs westernized with a name like Adam’s bridge!!!

    Jai Shri Ram!!!

    • kavir says:

      you are absolutely right Adam’s bridge it is Shree Ram’s bridge or Shree Hanuman’s bridge but no way it is Adam’s bridge

      • Heather says:

        I agree with it never having been a man made bridge. Just a natural connection of land. hence the after the fact a Western name of “Adam” as in “Adam’s Rib” from Adam and Eve.

        • shivanand says:

          I am hindu I know what this represents to all hindus.I smiled when I first saw these images.To all who believe keep the faith.Call it what they want it cannot change what it is,evidence RAMA did exist.

      • Krishna Sankar says:

        Exactly True Its unfair to all Hindus and now im even hearing that they want to break the bridge Very Unfair

    • kiran says:

      i agree with all what u hav said kriban…

  9. nick says:

    sunil u are foolish …dinosaurs aren;t for real …americans can do anything for money and fame so just image how low they would go to create surreal ideads…besides that bridge that was created in the ramayan….it was build for Lord Rama to rescue Sita and destroy Ravana…and that same bridge was destroyed by God himself… just keep in mind the thesis of this discussion my foolish friend….nasa Discover Ancient Bridge between India and Sri Lanka..end of story…

    • ravi kiran says:

      u fool who said u that nasa discovered the bridge?? it was known to Indians all along. u foolish westerns didnt accept the fact. thats it. there are a few more things i would like to mention which shows the sinful nature of the europeans.
      1)recentmost is that INDIA’S CHANDRAYAN found evidence of water on moon n now us says it dscovered water on moon. when the proof of water was submitted to european scientific society it was rejected. n when nasa did the same it was accepted.
      2)nasa never sent any man to moon. (want proof?? just search the net n u will get ample of it.)
      3)we are the ones who taught u what 1+1 is. and u say u taught us. the truth is when british invaded India it twisted and rewrote history the way they wanted.
      4)who the hell gave u permission to name our bridge as ‘adams bridge’??
      5)the INDIAN vedas taught the system of binary without which computers ‘invented by u’ would be non-existent.
      6)Aryabhatta the greatest mathematician ever said earth revolves around the sun, and sun is also not at the center of universe in the 6th century 10 centuries before your galleleo said. he also mentioned about RELATIVE MOTION by givin the example of a man sitting in the boat 16 centuries before Einstein. the truth is that u dont know all this.
      7)Baudhayan stated the theorem in 3rd cent ‘The sq. of the diagonal of a rectangle is equal to the sum of the sqs. of the other two sides’ which u call as’pythagoras thm’.
      8)the value of pi was calculated correctly to 11 digits by 10th cent by an INDIAN when europeans knew it only till 5.
      9)once roman king came to India and he was astonished to see everyone clean and neatly shaven. he wanted ur foolish ancestors to be so clean as well and to do so he had to bribe them by reducing tax.
      10)recently i came across an article which said a british company was trying to get a “patent” for ‘discovering medicinal properties of an ancient herb which was known to INDIANS more than 2500 yrs ago. this shows how hopeless and shameless u europeans are. more than all who the hell gave u dogs the rights to “patent”??
      11)This is just the tip of the gigantic iceberg. u fools do research only for credits but its not the same with us. we study to learn and gain more knowledge.
      This proves that u europeans are inferior to us n not the other way around.
      so next time when u fools comment, please think (of if u have brains!!) before u do so.

      • sarva says:

        Hare Krishna Ravi,
        As a, “foolish westerns” (westerner), that has wholly embraced eastern culture I have a couple of comments. First, thank you for sharing a few of the mostly unknown and unrecognized achievements of Indian culture. As a devotee of Lord Krishna and a disciple of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada since 1973 I can attest to the extraordinary benefit that has accrued to my life from 37 years of sadhana, studying the Vedas, and practicing a life style centered on Vedic wisdom. I would be lost without it, and owe my happiness, knowledge and salvation to what I have learned from eastern thought and practice.
        I also have two small requests for you. First, as you are clearly a learned person, my hope is that you will continue to share your knowledge with others who are less fortunate. Second, we find the sanskrit proverb, ” satyam bruyat, priyam bruyat”, truth should be spoken, but should be done in a palatable, non-offensive way. I think we foolish westerners would be more inclined to hear your message of eastern knowledge if it were presented without the name calling rhetoric. Thanks.

      • rajeev says:

        dear ravi kiran, u r very right, these Europeans are very much afraid of Indians. they think they are master of world bt they forget to thank their teacher for all the matters which they think they had discovered. infact they can use the word discovered, but its us who invented science & all calculative formulas.

        regards

        Rajeev

        • ravi kiran says:

          Oh I just found a few more things I wold like to add to that list
          12) Trigonometry was created by Aryabhatta. It went to Greece via the arabs and then to europe..
          13) The method of differential elements (Calculus) was invented in INDIA. Richard Feynman has himself accepted this.
          14) Aryabhattiyam the book written by Aryabhatta was translated to Latin in 13th cent. this is said to have Western Astronomers.
          15) The word “Geography” means BHUGOLA SASTRA. The very word “BHUGOLA” is made of two words -BHU meaning earth, -GOLA meaning round. Do u want more proof??
          16) ALBERT EINSTEIN said “We owes a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count through decimal system, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made.”

    THIS BRDIGE EITHER BUILT BY KING RAVAN OF LANKA OR RAMA OF INDIA. IF RAMA BUILT THIS BRIDGE THEN HOW KING RAVAN WENT TO INDIA TO GRAB RAMA’S WIFE SITA ? OR IF RAMA BUILT THIS BRIDGE KING RAVAN HAS FLEW TO INDIA BY HIS OWN AIR PLANE TO INDIA & BROUGHT SITHA TO LANKA. ACCORDING TO THE OLD STORIES AMONG THE LANKANS AS KING RAVAN WAS USING AN AIR PLANE TO GO TO INDIA. IN SINHALA LANGUAGE IT CALL “DANDU MONARAYA” THERE ARE PICTURES OF IT. IT LOOK LIKE A HUGE PEACOCK.

    ANY HOW THIS BRIDGE PROVE THE WHOLE WORLD HOW EFFICIENT, TALENTED & BRAVE PEOPLE LIVED IN THIS REGION MANY MANY YEARS AGO. THERE WERE NO MACHINES TO BUILT IT & NO MAPS TO SEE WHERE THE OTHER COUNTRIES ARE.

      hi….. Aruna

      IF ONLY RAMA WANT TO GO HE WILL HAVE THAT MUCH POWER TO GO OR OTHERWISE HANUMAN WILL HELP HIM TO GO TO THAT PLACE THAT HE WANT TO TAKE ALL VANARAS TO THAT PLACE THAT’S WHY HE BUILT THAT BRIDGE …..

        look here people jai sri rama and krishana is the same person but juat diffrent from and names so ravan did not bulid the bridge he had powers he could have fly with animal he take site wit something similar like a charriot that fly in the air u guys really need some one to tell u the real story of sri rama and wen ram wanted to find sita he also bulid that bridge because of hunuman if u know bout hunuman story u will understand he was gieven a curse by a sage plz loook and humana as a child and u will surely understand

    Guys,
    The person who created these images is probably smirking away to glory. Tell me something. India has sattelites. Do you think if this existed BJP would not have found it yet.
    Besides Adams Bridge is too much. If Nasa actually called it that then the christians are giving substance to Hinduisim. Hell no… I dont see that happening.

  14. E.W. Golding says:

    The almost universal estimate among scientists is that homo sapiens appeared (in Africa) about 120,000 to 170,000 years ago. ‘Out of Africa -II’ the migration of humans out of Africa commenced about 80,000 to 100,000 years ago. They reached Australia about 50,000 years ago and passed through South India on the way.
    It is utterly impossible for a MAN MADE BRIDGE to have been created 1.75 million years ago because our species, man, did not exist even 1.5 million years ago. Or is someone suggesting that this was built by Homo Erectus or Homo Habilis a far distant intermediate specis between us and the apes?

    • id says:

      The archeological record does not agree with you. There is a wealth of artefacts that shows ‘modern man’ (Homo Sapiens) has been active on the planet for many, many millions of years and new evidence comes to light often. The arguement usually runs something like – Those finely built polished walls and those exquisite mortars found in 65 million year old strata (under basalt lava flows under Table Mountain) couldn’t possibly have been made by homo sapiens because they didn’t exist then. And those modern human remains in strata older than their supposed ancestors couldn’t possibly be modern human remains because they weren’t around then. Its a case of knowledge filtration (not always intentional) and the blinders of human arrogance.

      • tom says:

        Id many thanks on your comment (jan 7). I have suspected filtration of acheological evidence many times but where can we find the original evidence that has been changed in order to prove to missinformed people the world over the truth’s as they stand? Modern social engineering scheme’s by goverments are no doubt involved, as are scientists who are not open-minded and try to make evidence fit in with their Darwinian belief’s intstead of being open to possibility and then to further research.

        • Dharmendra Sharma says:

          Dear Tom a book written by Michael A Cremo “Forbidden Archeology” is a huge compilation of such archeological findings which were filtered out from the current scintific knowledge.

    • Serge says:

      You are basing your estimate on the narrowness and ignorance of biblical studies. According to the ancient testament the world was created 4004 years ago.HOW WOULD YOUR MIND IMAGINE 1.7 MILLION YEARS AGO?

      • That is rubbish. The universe was created so many billions of years ago. We can calculate the exact number. But this earth is fantastically old. It goes through cycles and there are periodic devastation’s, the flood in the Bible is one of these. But that is not the only flood. There are unlimited floods… It goes on. Actually the cycle of the material world is eternal. It is created and destroyed at intervals, but the cycle goes on eternally. And one cycle is simply one breath of Maha-Visnu and in that one breath there is 100 years of Lord Brahma, and Lord Brahma’s years have 360 days each and in each day of Lord Brahma there are 1000 catur-yuga cycles, each cycle consists of four ages and the total duration of one cycle is 437,000,000 years about. So if you take this number and multiply it by 1000 then you get the length of Lord Brahma’s days. There are devistations between each cycle and a very big devastation and flood at the end of Lord Brahma’s day. And then Lord Brahma’s night is also 1000 catur-yuga cycles. So the whole universe is silent and flooded by water for this whole 1000 years. And then when Lord Brahma wakes again the next day he gets the sun going again and dries up the water and all the same planets and things come out again and he organizes a new creation. But it is still the same old planets coming up from under the water.

        At the end of Lord Brahma’s life there is a much more complete devastation of the universe. At that time the whole universe srinks down to a seed size and it is again drawn back into the body of Maha Visnu. But then when Maha Visnu breathes out the universes come out again and the Brahma’s take birth again and the create again… And the same living entities who were there at the time of the deastation again populate the universe and continue their activities…

        So this universe and this earth are created at the beginning of Lord Brahma’s day and continue to exist for his whole day… That is a lot more than 4004 years….

        Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

  15. Viswanadhan says:

    The bridge still shows up clearly during the low tides. However, wherther it was built by Lord Rama or they are there from the time of continental drifts is not a serious issue. In India people have a tendency to believe only what they see and rubbishes away all other. The basic theory of life of many Indians relate to the ‘Dasavatara’, the ten incarnations of God on Earth being Matsya (Fish), Kurma (Turtle), Varaha (Boar), Narasimha (the half man half beast), Vamana (the little man/boy), Parasurama (Man (Ram with Parasu) with the the Axe, Sree Ram (the man with a Bow), Sree Krishna (the man with a Flute), Balarama (the man with a Yoke) or Buddha (the enlightened man)and Kalki (you name it). Is there any other theory of evolution of life on earth other than the Dasavatara ? The life which first appears in the Sea (not necessarily in the form of fish – but in the form of any aquatic living thing) evolves in to a turtle which for prolonged periods can live both in water as well as on land. From the turtle, the life evolves in to an animal in the form of a wild boar from which it transforms in to a half man half beast. The half man half beast then becomes a little man (the first man on earth must have been short and not as tall as we are now – thanks for the modern science for our growth). The little man then evolves in to a wild man with an axe and he kills other men (as Parasuram killed the Khshatriyas). It is now the time for Parasuram to go for Bow and Arrow and becomes Sree Ram. After Sree Ram Sree Krishna with a Flute comes. It merely means by this time the man was interested in music, dances and other activities and at the same time Krishna’s brother Balaram has a Yoke and it is defenitely not for fight but to cultivate the land. Buddha is an enlightened man whose name must have been removed from the history and then the Kalki and it is where the life which first appeared in water has now reached. The Dasavatara is the best scientifically justifiable theroy of life. The question is how did the ancient Indians know of this theory ? or was it God’s spontaneous creation of man as believed by some others ? Which theory suits well for science ? I believe what is said in the Epics is true manifestations of gone by historical facts. The Nagastras, Paasupathastras and all those other astras and weapons of mass destruction are now becoming true and a reality. Pasupathastra once set in motion multiplies from one to ten and ten to hundred and home in on the target with cent percent accuracy. The modern missiles with multiple war heads are the modern pasupathastras. Be proud you carry the blood of those great indians who did not really imagines of the eventualities but actually possessed the knowledge and weaponry. That is why and how we the Indians harnessed the most advanced atom technology in 1974 within 27 years from becoming independent. We had and still has the IQ inherent within us to be a great nation.

    • Hare Krishna Anuj

      The secret to controlling the mind is giving the mind something better to be occupied with. If you can become attracted to Krishna who is so beautiful then gradually all the so-called beautiful things of the material world and the so-called pleasures of the material world will seem unimportant to you in comparison to the beauty of Krishna and your relationship with Krishna. So briefly you can achieve what you want to do by becoming Krishna conscious. But to become Krishna consciousness is a process that you need to learn and that is the subject of the books of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the Founder-Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. So please read Srila Prabhupada’s books. You can read online at:

      http://www.PrabhuapdaBooks.com

      and you can get the actual hardcopy books at:

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

    I went to the official website of NASA and found this article.

    This is faith and we have to understand that we are not capable enough to analyse what happened even 100 years back, this is a couple of million years ago.

    If you are getting the results of spirituality, meditation or chanting the names of the lord then go ahead and make life better.There is no harm trying something whose power is talked about so much.

    Valmiki wrote the Ramayana and mentioned a bridge between India and Sri Lanka. He did not have satellite or any high technology to foresee this bridge.

    NASA now showed images of a “MYSTERIOUS” bridge “RIGHT THERE”! Why are some of us still arguing about a bridge showing up there? Common sense! I whole heartedly believed that is Lord Rama’s Bridge. The Ramayana was not just written by Valmaki only but the same exact story was retold by many other Great Philosophers; and the bridge was mentioned in all!!

    Oh sure, now you love NASA when they use their orbiting satellites and scientific instruments to confirm the existence of an ancient bridge. Not so much when they go to the Moon and peer into deep space looking for the earliest light in the Universe. Heh.

  32. The NASA images discover ancient Bridge between India and SriLanka. the NASA was declared the bridge was 17,50,000 years ago, but not built here in between India and Srilanka. the bridge is Rama built. evidence is correct but not proof the bridge in that place.

    Hi, When “Europeans” were still living in caves “INDIA” was way ahead of them.When they were stuggling to find that the world was round, Vedic science was already way ahead of them and knew as a fact that the world was round. When the Barbarians from arabia and Europe invaded India they stole everything from us and tried to destroy our culture, that is why so many of our educational, religious institutions were wiped out by these narrow-minded beasts in the name on conquest, gold, slavery, debauchery, prophets of the middle east, their so called God and their so called true religion.
    It is of no surprise today that the children of blood thirsty Arabia and Europe would deny their past sinful act and refuse to admit that Indians were far more advanced civilization than their barbaric ones. The stole even the name of the bridge that Lord Ram constructed into Adam bridge. Their blood, mind, action is filled with sin and corruption down to the last atom and their downfall is near. Remember karma will come and bite you in the bum!

  41. Naresh says:

    Hi everybody,
    I’m not here to hurt anybody’s feelings regarding hinduism since i myself being a devoted hindu, i would like to make some valid points. Hinduism has got great spiritual messages which by all means has the power to vanish all the problems we have in life. This may even provoke us to believe that everything happens is because of god. This region ( Tamil Nadu & srilanka ), where just one land during Lemuria phase (atleast 20,000 – 25,000 years before) and has human inhabitants with it. Dravidans were living throughout the country. Even recent archeological findings in harappa reveals that it is pro-tamil scriptures which is found in it. The Invasion and settlement of Aryans from persia, mesopotamia etc pushed dravidians in harappa to far south to join with their existing dravidans in southIndia & srilanka. A great plateau collide happened in central asia and due to that land mass was shrinked and separated due to which western ghates ( especially in kerala) and separation of land mass between Tamil Nadu and srilanka happened. Still the dravidans never really were willing to be separated and constructed a bridge to renunify themselves. The group of peoples are predominantly tamils. This bridge was actually in use for several decades but due to the continious increase of waterflow and sea level led to the sinking of the bridge. May be either Rama would have used the bridge for sea was not known. But one thing was certain. No one would have the time to actually built a bridge, when his wife is being kidnapped by another person on the other side. I’m sure the strengths of hanuman is more than good enough to carry Rama and laxmana and others to srilanka. Which hanuman has actually done it several times. So no reasons infact is good enough to understand that it was done by lord rama. Instead we need to appreciate the dravidan and Tamil culture who had the civilization to construct the bridge to bridge the human relations between their people. This is a proper evidence for all the people to understand that srilanka was actual inhabitant of dravidans and it was part of tamil country for several millenniums and please don’t confuse it with the Indian tea planters who have settled over there few centuries before. Just like wage workers transported between regions, they were also transported which by no means will blow the fact that tamils were the natives of srilanka and it was part of tamil country and so of course it is part of India. Buddhism came in to picture through back door as christianity came to India. All low caste Tamil Hindus were convinced to convert to Buddhism just like christians who did the same to hinduism. all buddhists in srilanka hate hindus (tamils ) at all costs just like christians to hinduism. In srilanka, Hindus and Hindu temples were destroyed. More than 1800 great architectural temples which were old as 2000 to 6000 years were totally destroyed during the recent genocide against hindu tamils. Kindly being a devoted hindu, give your voice against genocide by racial singhala buddhists. Never believe the fact ( even in wikipedia) that buddhism was the actual religion in srilanka. It is sainavism ( Hinduism) which was a predominant religion in srilanka and this land has been referred as favourite land of lord shiva in ancient tamil texts. We have extraordinary temples of Lord shiva which was buit by the Great Cholas in srilanka. Of course most of them were destroyed but still the point is srilanka natural inhabitants were hindu tamils only and not that tamils migrated as Tea planters, which is a disastrous and meaningless thought. It is true that Tamils from India went over there as tea planters but even much more before that, several millieniums before tamils were living there and tamils were the actual and ancient inhabitants in the place. I see lot of hindus making their posts in the forum. I request everybody to voice their concern about the hindu tamils life in srilanka. Morethan 1,00,000 hindu tamils were killed in recent war and srilanka is trying every possible ways to make it as a buddhist country which obviously it is not. It has exercised his influence also in wikipedia to make it’s viewers believe that srilanka is a buddhist country. When Tamil hindus have ruled allover Tamil Nadu, they by no means would have allowed or would have got defeated to leave their land to go under buddhist people. Buddhism came in the land only through conversions through buddhish monks and montesaries. The cholas and pandiyas were hindu rulers of the place and buddhist never had any great ruler for the land. This is a proven evidence that these places were all tamil hindus. Apart from sanskrit, prakrit and pali, Tamil is also a sacred language for Hindus in this part of the country. Again don’t confuse it with Hindi which originated during mughal rules, few centuries back and also remember these regions were not under any msulim influence. Kindly voice the concern for the fellow tamil hindus who were not allowed to celebarate any hindu festivals in srilanka, either diwali or ganesh or Krishan jayanthi. These natives were oppressed by singhala racist biddhist by depriving of jobs, education etc by way of constitutional amendments. Indian way of democracy was nowhere existing here and fighting against constitution racism was the only option for the people. If we don’t raise our voices now, sooner we Indian Hindus will face the same scenario. While most of Indians will be converted to christianity, buddhism ( already 1 lakh converted at a single stage in maharastra by Ambedkar) and day will come where all we Indian hindus will be minorities and by constitutiona amendments will loose all our fundamental rights and will loose rights in Jobs and education. Already we are seeing the symptoms of this in our country. So kindly unify and try to gather further informations via internet r magazines about our Hindu tamils in srilanka . Their history to presenet living pathetic conditions in srilanka. If we don’t raise our voice, remember then no one will do it for them and also no one will raise any voice if the scenarios happened as similar in srilanka in India. Jai Hind

    Hi,

    • Jason says:

      Thanks for the peace-making comment, but it is pointless. If prophets from God all disagreed with one another–some preaching Islam, some Christianity, some Hinduism, etc., then they were not all telling the truth. If they came from the same God they would teach the same things about God. Claiming that all religions are true is popular these days, but it is senseless, because all religions disagree with one another. There aren’t many contradictory truths. There is truth, and there are lies. Many lies; one truth. If that was not true, science would be impossible, so the test you mentioned would not work.

      Forensic tests would not prove anything concerning the stones. If they were local or from another part of the planet, it would not prove they formed a bridge or that they were part of some mythical miracle. Rocks that float can travel by water on their own through ocean currents and rivers and floods, etc. Also, even if they formed a bridge, this would prove nothing other than the fact that a bridge existed. This does not prove that some mythical hindu demon-god built it. The Egyptians could say that Horus build the great Pyramid. I could claim that King Kong built the Empire State Building. That doesn’t make it true.

      The argument isn’t over whether a bridge existed or not. But the satellite photo that is shown is a natural occurrence, not a man-made bridge. This article is complete bullshit, including the claimed “1,750,000″ year old inhabitants of Sri Lanka, which no scientist would vouch for. But uneducated, brainwashed people who read this garbage do not do their own research. They believe it because they want to believe it, and no common sense can convince them otherwise. That is why they believe that floating rocks are magical and that talking pictures of Sai Baba are miraculous: their primitive, uneducated minds do not understand the concept of buoyancy or computer effects.

      Willful ignorance is their own problem. If they choose to use the brain God gave them, they would figure this stuff out.

      • nicholas says:

        Hi Jason,
        Thoroughly enjoyed your desperate attempts to prove that you are a scientific atheist. N i really believe, u feel all religions are crap.
        I totally don’t believe in mythology, be it indian or christian or islamic.
        Just wanted to make a point which has be stated umpteenth number of times, Hinduism is not a religion, Its WAY OF LIFE. The modern perception of Hinduism has gone astray, but the fact remains, Hinduism is more about ideas, opinion and growth on the inside rather than the world around it.
        I would not comment on authenticity of Ramayan n stuff ( cos it never happened), But ramayan is not about a god who was helped by monkeys to save his wife. Its far more philosophical n teaches lot of virtues in life, Most important of which is tolerance. Something which you totally don’t have towards others opinion. I feel sorry for you, you have been forced to see ramayan and mahabharat as God Stories by your parents or whoever N someone never tried to explain it to you the real meaning of these stories.
        Heres a small difference between religion and belief, I would like to tell you. I bet you will never come across any Hindu (God) mythical deity which says, I am god, follow me or he is god, follow him. Compare that to Christianity ( as it seems to be a popular religion of this post!)
        John 8:58 : Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”
        With Hinduism, if you understand it in its true sense, you are left with a tolerant, clean, non violent and beautiful way of living your life with total control. With others, well you end up believing Jesus is god and he will save you. No one will save you, you have to do that yourself and Hinduism tells you this very thing – Your are responsible and accountable for all your deeds.
        Stop Being a fake atheist dude. Atheist who poke into religions are the biggest loosers on the face of the earth. Atheism is the art of finding true virtues of life without help of religion. Its definitely NOT the annoying habit of telling people their religion/beliefs are wrong.
        You (like me ) take support of science to form your beliefs, while others take support of religion. Both ways you have to find the right way to spend your life. It doesn’t matter which way is correct(scientific) and which way is wrong, cos end of the day if your beliefs helped you live a happy n useful life then, whats the point of this fight anyways? :)
        Cheers!

    • R M Murari says:

      A very good point to come out with the truth. I believe in all religions. I have read Bible, Quaran and I do read my religious books.If you see teh mythologies of hindu, christen or muslim. Every one has more or less similar sort of stories of formation of earth or the saving of humans by god. I feel during the years the the situation made them separate, and no religion teaches blood shed or hatred.

  44. suparna says:

    dear all…
    I feel sorry for those of you who do not believe in Hinduism and Lord Ram. Obviously you are not destined to receive Krishna Consciousness. And for those of you who do believe, please do not waste your time trying to convince non believers. Let them rot in ignorance. I know it in my hearts that what i believe is true. That is enough for me, irresepective of other’s opinions. There is no need to give justifications. Ram built that bridge AND THAT’S IT.No second opinions invited, especially from ignorant westerners who dont even understand their own religion in depth. If they did, well….the world’s troubles would have been far less…..God is Great. Love you all.

  45. Nalisha says:

    if you can recall the story of the Ramayan, we can all clearly remember it saying that in order for the stones and rocks to float in the water lord Rama had to write his name on every single one… why don’t we then embark on some diving missions to recover random rocks from this bridge to see if lord Rama is written on it ??

  46. Sanjeev says:

    Let’s look at so called modern science. the body of a monkey changes into a human just like a cottage changes into a skyscraper or perhaps your Ford Fiesta changes into a BMW over night, sorry over millions of years? Is that really believable? A big bang which created the universe? By those measures the bomb over Hiroshima should have created houses, parks,and streets, all in perfect harmony. How laughable! And where did the ingredients from that big bang or cosmic soup come from? Modern so called science has no answers!

    And what about the results of this so called wonderful techno and economic development? Sadly it has devastated this planet and is still doing till the bitter end. What are the benefits? Nil!

    Better place your faith in the revealed scriptures than this so called scientific and economic development which is nothing more than madness. And India is sleep walking into this global Coca Cola culture. It will be a great disaster but they unfortunately do not see it. In any case the global economic system will collapse sooner or later. And so will any so called civilization which is based on money instead on culture.

    Let’s not forget the real purpose of the human form of life. It is not only eating, sleeping, sex and fighting otherwise we are not different to dogs and cats. They also do that and we do it a bit more sophisticated, that’s all. It is animal consciousness, not human intelligence.

    Human intelligence means to find out where we come from, where we go after death, what is the purpose and meaning of life. Sadly, if we so caught up in our scientific and economic development that we have no time asking those questions we are no better than dogs, cats and asses indeed, ready to take our next birth in the animal kingdom again instead of climbing up the evolutionary ladder and develop our spiritual self.

        Hello Guys,

        Here I want to tell you guys that we all are from same GOD, and there is only one religion exist and that is Humaninsm…Think if gods are different then they could have chosen the different space(planets) of living for all the religions in this huge and never ending universe, but he didn’t did that…and the reason for this is that he wants all of us together for ever and ever and ever……Why we people are not seeing his sign’s which I am mentioning below that tells that we all are same:

        * We all will Die one day…Nothing can be changed even if you follow any religion
        * All mothers have to face great pain giving Birth to new baby…Is there any religion who can says that wrong for them?
        *Blood groups,Bones your structure everything is same
        *All religion guys will share the same feelings,senses,emotions…we all feel bad when we loose someone close to us.
        *And now the most important example which tells that we are one ….Think if all the religion’s god are different and they have different characristics….then Why a baby can be borned if the pair is from different religions…will you then say that the new one belongs to different religion….I think no..then why we are thinking of different GOD’S lets leave that side…I think from all the holy books from the different religion the super power only wants us to preach about the unity and love….and sad thing is that we have given him only a failure for all his effort….So guys please please…don’t let him down, love all, even if you think that your god is the only truth then in that case also don’t hate other’s because if you think you are right then your GOD has only created him too.:)……But I personly believe that he is unborn and he send his good peoples to teach us the way of leaving.. and we treated them as a god and make it as a religion and hence only ended up to the failures…SO GUYS OPEN YUOR EYE’S ‘HE is PLAYING A TRICK TO TEST YOU AND THE PEOPLE WHICH HE SEND TO TEACH US A WAY OF LEAVING!!!!!! HA HA HA GOOD LUCK …keep DECODING his PRESENCE HA ! HA ! IT’s Still a Mystery and possible will be, till we open our eye’s…AND DON”T FORGET TO DECODE …

      Mr sheik and others who are trying to tell that the bridge s built by Adam and other stuff just explain if that fellow had built d bridge in search of ewe or who ever who was in India dn wtf he didn’t reach India and meet her even after d bridge is compete and connecting the two countries…..if he had built d bridge from sl to India, dn his grave yard must b in India and not in sl…..derefore All ur stuff s not true Der are more than 1000 evidences dat lord Rama only built d bridge and it is been proved scientifically!

  48. Aaron Andrews says:

    To all the people on this site, I think you have failed to realize the importance of this finding. Instead, of debating useless point of views about regilion and science. Maybe, you should consider that a bridge that is almost 2 million years old is linked to human history. A human myth states it in their text, and where all other history states that we only have been in this world for a 100,000 years this would make that false. There is really no doubt that this is a man-made bridge, a natural bridge this long would be like the one connecting North and South America together. There is a plain design to the bridge that suggest, a creator other than nature. What, you really should be talking about is that if they do find the hard evidence that this is a creation of humanity. How will that effect our society? Personally, all religions are crunches to the weak, their meaning lost in the vanity that I am better than you are. No religion is immuned to this vanity, so all religion are failures. Yet, all religion basically says the same thing, be a good person and do good. In that all religions are wonderful. I just wanted to point that out to Jason and Saurabh. This should be a debate about the bridge and weather it is natural or man-made. And, if the latter, what will that mean to the human race.

    Om Namo Narayanaya!
    I say “Hello” to all of you. I am part of Him and I realize very well my downfalls. Nevertheless, I’ll never give up. The Truth cleanses me. Let’s not judge the religion systems in the world. Let’s not judge ourselves. I write down these sentences now, because of the cooperation with God (whatever name you wish to lable Him with) I exist here and now. We have such abundance in human knowledge. If we don’t use it we will perish. It’s time to heal everything, everywhere – us (as thinking, acting, living) and the place where we all live, this beautiful planet Earth (all of its flora and fauna). To comprehend the meaning and truth about Rama’s bridge I imply we start erecting our own. Let its foundations are God on one side and we on the other!
    God bless all !!!

    Dear brothers and sisters,
    Hinduism existed only for the past 5000 years but Sanatana dharma has been there since the origin of earth.Hinduism as it is being called now is a very scientific religion.Unfortunately the people couldn’t understand them or the message it tries to convey.Why?Jason, pay attention.If the ages of the bridge is correct scientfclly(1,750,000 years old)that means it had existed long before people learn to write or read using hardware.Can you tell us when paper was found?So,about 2 million years ago,it was impossible to teach people about science.Even now,how many can understand the theory behind the big bang or the black hole?The rishis or the educated people educated the people in the form of stories.The problem with Hindus and others is, they remember the story but they never try to get the message.
    Einsten had mentioned hindu scriptures are the gold mines or the treasures of the scientific world.Why Einsten should say so?He found many things by researching the hindu scriptures.Hindus are lacking here.They don;t care about the message.They only care about the story.Jason, if you read this pls,check the scientific journal of Einsten and many other famous scientists.It will enlighten you.
    I read the story and I try to find the messge behind it.Many Indian scientist must come forward to expose the treasure we have.

    Hi everyone,
    I just realized that we are trying to comprehend something which is beyond our scope. We cannot see the full spectrum of light nor are we capable of hearing the full gamut of sound. Rather we don’t even know what the full spectrum of light or sound is. Based on the stuff we know , we are trying to extrapolate and understand the universe. And extrapolation might not work always. Scientists have been clever in their choice of words. They speak about observable universe :) .
    Based on many stuff (eg:the big bang perfectly explains the abundance of helium and other nuclei like deuterium (an isotope of hydrogen) in the universe.), it has been overwhelmingly proved that the big bang is the beginning. However, it just explains the formation of observable universe. How do we know that it accounts for the unknown universe too? Some years later we might discover a compound/phenomena which can’t be explained by the big bang. We would never know till we get a complete picture.

    The endeavors might be an exercise in futility, but it speaks volumes about the human mind.

    I know some people a jelous of this religion. I am also jot hindu. But cannot hide the fact.
    There is reason why british was sitting in india for soo long and we are only wealth only because we rule india.

    • saijen says:

      No other literature describes the existence of Only One God as beautifully as Veda does. Just see here.

      Na dvitityo Na triyaschthurtho naapyuchyate|
      N a panchamo Na shshtah sapthmo naapyuchyate|
      Nashtamo Na navamo dashamo naapyuchyate|
      Yagna yetham devamekavritham veda||
      Sa sarvassai vi pashyathi yachha praanathi yachhana|
      Tamidam nigatam sah sa yesha yeka yekavrideka yeva|
      Ya yetham devamekavritham veda||
      Atharva 13.4[2]19-20

      There is no second God, nor a third, nor is even a fourth spoken of

      There is no fifth God or a sixth nor is even a seventh mentioned.

      There is no eighth God, nor a ninth. Nothing is spoken about a tenth even.

      This unique power is in itself. That Lord is only one, the only omnipresent. It is one and the only one.

      A more categorical, effective, emphatic and impressive refutation of polytheism cannot be imagined. The Vedas reject the multiplicity of Gods in the clearest possible terms and speak about One God, who is Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient and absolutely and absolutely formless, who is ever unmanifest and who never assumes human forms or never descends on earth in any form- human or otherwise. Rig-Veda says “Vishwarkya vimana advihaya” meaning who he is not entangled by mind, omnipresent Lord is the Creator. He is both sustainer and protector too.

      The God oversees the insensate and conscious world in a unique way. The entire world rests with him. He is “Yeshah yekah” i.e. only one. He is conscious, indivisible. He is Yekah yevah” Only one.

      Where can be more clear assertion of existence of Only One God than this? After reading the description of God in this manner, Sri W.D.Brown writes,

      It [Vedic Religion] recognizes but one God.

      Vedas call upon to offer worship due only to God and no one else; to nothing else. It is clearly stated in Rig-Veda as under.

      Ma chidanyad vishamsata Sakhyo ma rishanyatha|
      Indramit srotha vrishanam sacha suthe
      muhurukhya cha samshata||
      Atharva 20.85.1

      Friends! Do not praise and worship anything else, do not be doomed, praise and worship only the benevolent God Almighty, unitedly in this world, sing his glory, again and again.

      Yeka yeva namasyo vikvidah| Atharva 2.2.1

      Among all the men and women, there is only one. Who is worthy of adoration, and worthy of worship too.

      Na tvaam anyo divyo na parthivo na jato na janishyathe|
      Yajurveda 27.36

      Oh God! There is nobody like you either in this world or the world beyond. No body equal to you is born as yet nor will be born ever in future also.

      There are people who are under illusion that there are many Gods after coming across words like Indra, Agni, and Varuna etc. But these words that signify both God and things other than Gods should not mislead the seeker after truth’ with this purpose in view, the Vedas declare clearly:-

      Indram Mitram varunamagnimaahuratho divyah sa suparno garuthmaan|
      Yekham sadvipra bahudha vadantyagnim yamam maatarishwanamaahuh||
      Rigveda 1.64.46

      The real God is one, the enlightened ones, speak of Him in several ways, God is divine, the supreme protector and graceful sentient, the Universal soul. They call Him Indra, the Almighty, the universal friend [mitra]. Varuna the most acceptable and obliterator of sins, they describe Him as [agnim] the supreme guide of the Universe, {Yaman} the controller of the Universe, and {matarishvanam] the life of all lives.

      So in other words, Indra, Agni, Yama, Suparna, Garuthman and others are different epithets for one and the same God[ though not exclusively, as the same words signify other entities too in different contests]. All doubts about the correctness of the unequivocal statement that the Vedas uphold only monotheism and not Polytheism are set at rest when we consider

      Yo na pitah janitha vidhata dhamani veda bhuvanani vishwa|
      Yo devaanam namadha yeka yeva tam samprashnam bhuvanam yantyanya||
      Rigveda 10.82.3

      All these several worlds, find ultimate refuge, in that curiosity-provoking, thought –arousing Lord who is our father and creator, who is , the maker of sacred injunctions and Knows all the abodes and worlds and finally who is only one assuming the names of different divinities.
      Vedas describe only One God at all places. The advice is He alone should be praised and worshipped. He alone is the emperor of the Universe.
      Yekho Vishwasya bhuvanasya rajah Rig-Veda 6.36.4
      The Lord of the entire universe is one and one only.

    The first signs of human inhabitants in Sri Lanka date back to the Stone Age, about 1.750.000 million years ago. These people are said to have come from the South of India and reached the Island through a land bridge connecting the Indian subcontinent to Sri Lanka named Adam’s Bridge. This is related so in the epic Hindu book of Ramayana.

    You are conflicting in your words that the first signs of human …. they were came from south of india….

    it mean that there were no Ravana and their ancestors befor this period.

    AND

    I hope the Adam’s bridge was built by floating rocks – am i correct??
    hope so (as per hindu history)

    but the bridge you see in the satellite image is under the water and it is developed (attached firly) naturally from the earth.

    hope you know about Danuskodi which was destroyed (submerged) by natural calamity just few decades.
    after 100+ years, people like you will say danuskodi was built by xxxx god for xxx purpose before 1 million years ago and you will show the satellite image like this.

    WHAT IS TRUTH
    Million years ago the Sri Lanka island was united with india geographically and seperated due to geo movement by nature.

HIS WRITING IS SIGNIFICANT PROOF BECAUSE HE WAS PRESENT IN THAT AGE OF TREATER YUG. ALL RELIGIONS HAS A HISTORY ON SOME SORT. WE MUST RESPECT THAT.

    THAT BRIDE WAS BUILT FOR A SPECIAL PURPOSE, TO BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN GOOD (INTELLECT) AND EVIL(MIND) INDIA REP. GOOD BECAUSE THE LORD HAS MANIFEST ON THAT PRECIOUS LAND AND TRAVEL TO LANKA USING THE BRIDGE AND DESTROYED RAVANA THE EVIL MIND. THE EVIL IS NO MORE IN LANKA.

    LETS USED OUR INTELLECT TO CONTROL OUR EVIL MIND OR WE WILL BECOME LIKE JASON. WHO IS LESS OF A HUMAN TO USE VENOMOUS WORDS TO ADDRESS A RELIGION. NO ONE SHOULD SPEAK ILL OF ANOTHER RELIGION. ALL RELIGION LEADS MAN TO THE SAME DESTINATION. GOD. IF YOU DO, THEN YOU ARE DOOMED.

    We are different and we have not got a faith but far more, it’s a relationship with Krishna.

    • Pravin says:

      You are right dear. This is only because of Interference of other religious in Hindu you can find this from history. But Hindus are different from all those this also you can find out from histroy and that also with many proofs. Other are in rase that how they will make hole world same as them (Making conversion this also you can find in History and now also) But Hindu is great he will not try to do this because we have Sant parampar (GURU) such as Shri Ram, Shri Krishna, Tukaram Maharaj, Dnyneshwar Mharaj, Gajanan Maharaj and now Asramji Bappu, Narendra Maharaj. We all Hindu should form unity rather that fighting between Caste. One shoul only say that he or she is Hindu and only Hindu.

  71. srikiran says:

    India is the Karma bhumi (“the land of Karma”). Indians are more familiar with God and they know the energy and magical powers of God.Why because some Hundreds of evidences are found in India that Only Indians have the power to talk directly with God and also received Gods speech & people also following rules of God according to Vedas and ancient priests in India.
    iam proud to be Indian why because God has been took birth in India more than 10times (Janmas and avathar)describing the avathar dharmas and full filling his tasks.
    my Humble request is that God is a Surpreme Power he doesnt want to Prove how the magics or Natural power is using in order to run the Universe…
    lastly, science is also an integral part of God we cant differ God and science
    we have an evidence that every ascpect of science and its principles are present in Rig veda which is written in Sanskrit.That principles are unable to analyze by the man kind completely so we have a partial knowledge about Universe and science so we should not be over confident about the Science…..

  72. srikiran says:

    my dear brothers & sisters of this world i mean to say that in vedas God has been kept his ideas ,tricks logics about creation, expansion of this Universe. one of the fourth part is Rig veda in that total science and its key points are mentioned if you able to understand try that .why iam telling means it is proven that almost every principles of science and technology has been came from rig veda,Ramayana, Maha Bharatha, bhagwath geetha and 108 upanishats which is the evergreen treasure of India.
    my dear foreigners we saw the total space without using any telescope, we calculated the astrology without using any instruments but accurately, we created flying soccers, missiles rockets,almost present Advance technology is used in ancient times in Ramayan and Mahabharatha time only you people are directly or indirectly catching that points from various books and inventing modernly which is enough to the present caliber…
    conclusion: so ever underestimate the Indian religions and Indian People. They are very familiar with the technology and mythological aspects.

    • Shreyas says:

      Hi Rustaib
      As far as the myth goes, someone has answered it already before. Rama needed to transport an entire army across the sea, not just himself. So assuming he could walk on water, it still wouldn’t have served his purpose.
      That said, I have to agree with one of the first comments in this thread. If the bridge is indeed an ancient man made construct, it still does not provide conclusive evidence in favour of Prince Rama having built it. But nevertheless, it must have been an extraordinary feat for people of that era to build something like that.

    • Pravin says:

      Why you want to compair dear GOD is GOD he will not show his power unnecessarily if he has source to do same. At that time there was source to make bridge which is a challange for todays technology. Am I correct.

    This bridge is prepared by our god SHRI RAM and the bridge name should be SHRI RAMS BRIDGE. Indians would not accept the name adams bridge at all. English people always do nothing but they are smart in researching what others have done. They claim they are samrt and they say they have discovered this and give their name to that project. But it reflects their irresponsibity and rudeness against the greatest and powerful culture which belongs to INDIA.

      Read all the conversion in this side you will come to know.

    • anil says:

      oh…. my friend ArvindThe Hindu scriptures, like the Buddhist, dwell … on withdrawal from the realm of pleasure. The spiritually mature man is one who “abandons desires,” who “has lost desires for joys,” who “withdraws, as a tortoise his limbs from all sides, his senses from the objects of sense.” Hence the ideal man as depicted in the Bhagavad Gita: a man of discipline, who acts without worrying about the fruits of his action, a man who is unmoved by acclaim and by criticism…. That Hinduism and Buddhism sound so much alike is not shocking. The Buddha was born a Hindu. But he carried the theme of sensory indifference further, boiling it down to a severe maxim—life is suffering—and placing it in the center of his philosophy.

  82. GOD says:

    Every one of you are god…………………….everything exist and dont exist is god……..you just have to go find it out withing you…yu will get your answer.

    • If we are god then why have we forgotten that we are god? Is god forgetful. And why do we need you to remind us that we are god?

      There are some truths in what you say. Everything that exists is certainly coming from God and there is nothing that is not part of God. And God is within us as the supersoul. So we can certainly find everything within us. But that everything is God, not us.

      God is within us. But we are not God. We are of course part of God. An expansion of the internal energy of God. We have the same qualities as God. But we are small and God is great. What you are saying is something like saying a drop of water from the ocean is the ocean. That is wrong, that is a mistake. Because the ocean is great and the drop is very small. But if you analyze the drop it contains salt and if you analyze the ocean it also contains salt. But the quantity of salt in the ocean is so great and the quantity of salt in the drop is so small.

      So we are not God. God is within us. And we have the same qualities as God. But He is great and we are small.

      He does not forget. We forget. So if we were God we would not have forgotten that we were God and we would not need you to remind us…

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy.

  84. 1,750,000 is a figure I am also not able to clearly understand too as most reader here. As I understood Lord Rama was born somewhere around BC 5010 , please correct me if I am wrong(It is just from my limited knowledge that I gained from other websites). I recently posted an article related to Rama Setu in my website as well but i preferred to keep it as “ancient than 3500″ since I am not clear on this exact number of years.

  86. Dharmendra Sharma says:

    Although we can prove the existence of God indirectly by means of scientific observations, but it is very difficult to directly prove his existence by currently available scientific means.

    Because there is a basic fault in the currently available scientific means and instruments, and that is all the scientific knowledge is based on the material aspect of the creation and God is not a material thing. To prove the God with such scientific measures will be like doing an experiment of electricity with purely non conductive materials, and the result will be an inevitable failure.

    There is only one way to prove God scientifically, by using the means alike to God, and that is our soul, our conscious existence. Thousands of rishis and sages have found God through this way. If one can demonstrate something which is supernatural and beyond current material scientific knowledge after practicing a conscious experiment with his own life that must be acceptable as a sufficient scientific proof of God’s existence. and if somebody do not believe on others findings they have to conduct the experiment themselves to believe.

    Hare krishna…..
    this is very glad and great to see these pictures released by NASA. thank you Krishna u r so so so great and thanks for showing these by Nasa. we dnt have any doubt on these and his incarnation as RAMAYYA…. but some people who are in illusory and in the hands of Maya they need these proofs..
    And this is not the factor of India or other country, for him(God,Krsna) all countries and people are equal,, By fortunately he elected our india for his almost all carnations …. by godgrace we are all indians so thank u krsna for giving this life to me in india.. And i think lankans also very fortunate coz Ramayya entered in their land..
    And NASA recently released DWARAKA photos in sea this is aproof for MAHABHARATAM and Krsna incarnation. People who doesnt believe god especially in Krishna open ur eyes and pray our krsna ,he is so kind amd mercy to excuse us…..
    chant Hare krishna and be happy….your future also glorious.

    We should not forget that India is a secular state and we are all ment to forget our culture, faith and history. Even if we can see proof we should call it a myth and we should be greatful to the muslims and the west for civilising us.

    Is this not what is taught in India these days? Progress = Economics, + adopting western and islamic values + castism + anti-”Hindu” tradition + corruption + Nerhu/Gandhi family rule + denial of history … this is the true India and we are very proud of it !!!

      Yes we should.

  89. Clifford says:

    It is hard to say a “man made bridge” was built 1.5 million years before the existence of man.

    If man = humans = homo sapiens

    Then the species is about 200,000 years old with virtually all of our known “modern technology” originating in the Holocene epoch, in the last 12,000 years.

    Neanderthal Man would have been somewhere between 30,000 and 600,000 years ago.

    So, 1.7 million years ago would put it contemporary with Homo Erectus and Homo Ergaster.

    Evidence indicates very primitive tools. Probably no wheels or carts. And possibly no significant domestication of animals.

    They had, however, spread throughout Africa, and into South East Asia.

    Forms of writing was likely very primitive if any, and largely symbolic.

    Approximately every 100,000 years, the planet cycles through glacial and interglacial periods which likely involve extreme climactic shifts and the ocean levels naturally rising or falling several feet. So in the last 1.7 million years we would have had about 17 glacial/interglacial cycles.

    Anyway, is is possible that an ancient hominid species attempted to maintain a pathway between India and Sri Lanka during times of flooding because of rising sea levels during interglacial periods. It would be pretty extraordinary if some evidence was to indicate pre-homo sapien construction. However, I doubt any prehistoric accounts dating back over a million years would have any accuracy. And most studies of the bridge seem to indicate most of the human activity on it dates to the most recent 10,000 years, in the middle of the current Holocene Epoch.

    • Hare Krishna Pramod

      This is a very good idea Pramod. There is so much scientific knowledge in the Vedas. But mostly Indians are not taking this knowledge very seriously since the time the English were the rulers of India. In that time there was strong propaganda that everything from the Indian culture was primitive and bad and everything British was advanced and scientific and good. And it continues today with Indians trying to become very advanced in the Western so-called scientific knowledge and mostly they do not consider the Vedas as a source of scientific knowledge.

      In Mahabharata you see Arjuna and the other fighters using truly wonderful weapons that are so much more advanced than anything western science has produced. Arjuna could fire a brahmastra which was more powerful than an atomic bomb but it could be very precisely controlled. It could be targeted to a particular person and it would seek out that person and kill him without harming others. That was the situation with the Brahmastra which was fired to kill the embryo of Praiksit Maharaja in the womb.

      So there is a lot in the Mahabharata but there is much more science in Srimad-Bhagavatam. It is full of science.

      The real science that the western world is missing is the science of the soul. They try to explain that everything occurs as a result of chance. They try to say that there is no intelligent control behind anything. That is all happened by chance. This is a very childish explanation, not an explanation at all. It means they are completely ignorant.

      If you see a motor car driving by and you ask someone where it came from and they tell you it was produced by chance from a big bang what will you think? Is that a very reasonable explanation? An even if you manage to establish it was produced by the Ford Motor Company in one of their plants by many engineers and workers [ie: it was produced by intelligent living beings]. Then if you ask your friend, “How is the car moving around. How does it know to turn left of to turn right.” And he starts explaining about the engine and the fuel the steering system and the brakes and all the systems that make up the car. But how is it working? How is it being controlled? And he tries to tell you it is something in the engine, something in the petrol…. He does not realize the car is being controlled by the driver.

      Modern science claim that the human body is simply a combination of chemicals and it is working because of that combination of chemicals. Actually the human body is a machine, just like the car, and like the car it is being controlled, directed by the driver, the spirit soul, the living entity.

      If the western scientists could understand this simple point that would be a great advance in science. A great step forward…

      I suggest you study Srila Prabhupada’s Srimad-Bhagavatam and you will discover so much science. This is more than a paper, it could be a lifetime’s work.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

  92. Viraj says:

    Its quite clear the bridge would have been made by King Rawana! How else did he go back to Sri Lanka with his new misus Sitha? If there was no bridge before that, and if Rawana can travel between Sri Lanka and India without a bridge, Why couldnt Rama do the same? Obviously he was not in a hurry to get Sitha back if he did.. I would like to say that it would be impossible to kidnap a princess from India and take her to Sri Lanka without anyone noticing.. Maybe Sitha left Rama, and went with Rawana because she liked him more?

    • Pravin says:

      Rawan was having his own airoplane, you can find it in Srilanka, now also.
      God has given you Brain for learning and to think on what you have learned and Mouth to speak after thinking………………..so gain knowledge first (not by listening to other, listen to them but think and find what is the fact in that).
      And fact is fact no one can change it.
      Let anyone to jump any how any time.
      From next time think whle speaking because we care for our mother, if this is same for you, you would have not wrote this.

  93. Raj says:

    If Ramayana is true, Hanumanji is true. If the story of Rama or the Ramayana is a true story, then the bridge constructed by Hanumanji is also true.

    Lord Hanumanji is real. He is said to be living amongst us. His grace and Divinity could be realised thru Sankat Mochan or Hanuman chalisa. Chant the Hanuman Chalisa daily and see for yourselves the power behind it. Your personal experience is the best proof.

  94. Vince says:

    I am a Agnostic and I came to this belief after studying every religion. But I believe the Hindu epics of the Ramayan and Marabaratha are classics in which all societies could learn from. Hinduism is the oldest of all the major religions. All cultures built on the knowledge of other cultures. We all came from Africa and established religion and order in India which spread to Ancient Greece and onward to Europe and Asia. Jesus learned about religion in India this is a proven fact and Jesus is buried in Kashmir, Pakistan. The oldest bible does not mention a word of a resurrection. If there is a God He has not said a word all religion is man made and we need to start a new religion for the 21st century to stop the Fascist take over of Christianity and Islam.

  95. Vince says:

    I work in a hospital and my medical education proves that all humans start life by genetics that are programed to start the heart and life. So what evidence is there that humans even have a soul? I believe in a God but no religion. The earth is overpopulated by 3.5 billion humans. Yet every religion encourages people to reproduce to get more people to represent their religion.
    Why do these religious leaders not encourage people to adopt especially from Haiti or other impoverished nations?
    Why are there not more women in the role of spreading religion? Or women religious leaders?

    Today’s religion is about keeping old men in power for their own self interest.

  96. vishnu says:

    People have their own views, i’ve been reading the comments above and alot of you guys are real nagative when it comes to the bridge. Why do human beings like to down other people believes.I’ve been hearing about this bridge since i was a little boy i’m a roman chatolic and i do support the ramayan becouse of the teaching and its way of life. Today if humanity could do the same the world as we no it will be a better place. So my friend who said it was a joke or something to laugh about or just another epic think about those who belive in it an keep your negative opinion to your self you were not there in the past to be talking about it so shame on those who speak about it in a bad way.

  97. vishnu says:

    i do believe that christ in the missing years he wasnt mension was with the monks and preists learnig about the teaching of the ramayan and the indert jall book. Why dont i condemed thatthank you and i apologise if i’ve offened anyone by saying what i said and i will happy to give anyone a little histry about what i said

  100. Linea Singh says:

    Why are they calling it Adam’s Bridge?!… it states in the Ramayan-the holy book, that this bridge was built for Lord Rama to go to Lanka to save his wife.So my question is “Why,how and where did the name’Adam’s bridge’ come from?”

  101. S.Saravanakumar says:

    So far i had a small eye the comments given be many of asthikars and nasthikars.

    Really I Interested to say something for all.

    Ramayana is not a story, it is really happened before some years. Somebody telling this was happened before 17,00,000 years. Ramayana took place in Thretha Yuga. It is important to know the details of yuga years. As per my knowledge i give some information about all yuga years.

    1728000 Years for Sathya or Kritha Yuga
    1296000 Years for Thretha Yuga
    864000 Years for Dwapra Yuga
    432000 years for Kali Yuga

    Totally it comes 3888000 years. It is simply called as 1 CHATUR Yuga.

    also aware some information about lord BRHAMA
    24hrs = 1 day
    30 days = 1 month
    12 months = 1 year
    1 year to the man = 1 day to the DEVA
    365 days to the DEVA = 1 DEVA year
    12000 DEVA year = 1 CHATUR (Square) Yuga (Details given above)
    1000 CHATUR Yuga = 1 day to Lord BRHAMA

    So i request don’t ignore our hindu ithihasa. We are all living on the basis of information, advice, guidance, etc provided by the Veda, Upanishads, Ramayana, Mahabharata, Bhagavad Gita.

    it is very sin to hurt the interest of hindu culture and idealogies and mythologies. Be aware about the divinity of HINDUISM before to criticise hindu religion.

    Believe Rama is Always GOD and think he is the best brother
    Beleive Krishna is always GOD and he is the best friend.

    There are seven immortal are living invisibly in out country.

    Photos of the bridge are very very fantastic and proves Ramayana. Dwarka has also been discovered under sea
    water which was said to be intentionally made to sink by Shri Krishna. All these facts prove that the Indian Hindu mythology is not just a book of stories. Have you ever heard of ‘Trishanku’ who was sent in to the space by Vishwamitra, It clearly means India rather I should say Bharatvarsh had space programme at that time a long before ramayana. Have you ever analysed the meaning of Trishanku, actually it means Three(Tri) cones (Shanku)
    now a days we call it three stage rockets which are conical in shape just for the streamlining the atmosphere of earth perhaps Americans have got this idea from our books ramayan, mahabharat & purans etc. It is unfortunate that our own hindus do not want to believe on these books and existance of Shri Rama and Krishna just to show them as if they are modern. These people are not more than a fool. At last “Mera Bharat Mahan” I am proud to be an Indian – Jai hind , Vande Mataram !!!!!!!!!!!!

    It troubles me that people feel so strongly about forcing others to accept their religious beliefs or non-beliefs.

    It’s a fascinating finding by NASA and even if you don’t believe the Hindu scriptures, it should probably still be fascinating.
    Seriously, if it didn’t catch your interest, then why spend your time making comments and enforcing your opinion on rightoues Hindus? (that’s specifically for the likes of udaya and those that agree with him/her)

    Oh and also, if NASA says it’s man-made…dude u better believe it’s man made!

  107. Srinivas Voleti says:

    The pictures are really amazing and it took me to ecstasy level when I have gone through this.

    But our misery, as Indians, we feel a shame on our path that we will not realize ourselves about our great and ancient culture in the world until unless somebody says.

    My hearty pranaams to super mighty power to gave me the birth as an Indian, who is a real heir of SriRama.

    Jason, do you know that you, people of Europe, did not know how to count until recently? The church forbid all Christians to learn mathematics saying that it is the teachings of SATAN.

    People like you and your ancestors were dying at the age of 20 for lack of food , shelter and clothing when in the EAST from PERSIA to China people were eating in plates made of gold. Mathematicians and astronomers were measuring the distance from the aerth to the moon. In India we had plastic surgery and so on.

    I live in the UK and I challenge the maths professors to calculate any number of at least five figures with any number of at least two figures and give me the answer on one line. They say that they do not know and whoever knows this is the KING of MATHEMATICIANS on earth and in heaven. I di dit and he blushed crimson. This mathematical technique existed since the time of LORD RAMA ( if not since creation). How can you say that Indians didno/do not know sciences?

    You lack LOGIC in your conscience. You say that nobody can go to God without Jesus!My question is that before Jesus was borne where have all the dead people gone and where was God( the illusory god- father of Jesus)? Was he in hibernation? At least go and learn some meditation you will get your blocked mind opened.

    Story of Ram

    This is not the RAMAYAN STORY, but the facts about Ram and India as the most ancient civilization in the world.

    Good to read and to share with others

    The story of Shri Rams’ life was first narrated by Maharishi Valmiki in the Ramayana, which was written after Shri Ram was crowned as the king of Ayodhya. Maharishi Valmiki was a great astronomer as he has made sequential astronomical references on important dates related to the life of Shri Ram indicating the location of planets vis-a-vis zodiac constellations and the other stars (nakshatras).

    Needless to add that similar position of planets and nakshatras is not repeated in thousands of years. By entering the precise details of the planetary configuration of the important events in the life of Shri Ram as given in the Valmiki Ramayan in the software named “Planetarium,” corresponding exact dates of these events according to the English calendar can be known.

    Mr Pushkar Bhatnagar, of the Indian Revenue Service, had acquired this software from the US. It is used to predict the solar/lunar eclipses and distance and location of other planets from earth. He entered the relevant details about the planetary positions narrated by Maharishi Valmiki and obtained very interesting and convincing results, which almost determine the important dates starting from the birth of Shri Ram to the date of his coming back to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile.

    Maharishi Valmiki has recorded in Bal Kaand sarga 19 and shloka eight and nine (1/18/8,9) that Shri Ram was born on ninth tithi of Chaitra month when the position of different planets vis-a-vis zodiac constellations and nakshatras (visible stars) were:

    i) Sun in Aries; ii) Saturn in Libra; iii) Jupiter in Cancer; iv) Venus in Pisces; v) Mars in Capricorn; vi) Lunar month of Chaitra; vii) Ninth day after no moon; viii) Lagna as Cancer (cancer was rising in the east); ix) Moon on the Punarvasu (Gemini constellation & Pllux star); x) Day time (around noon).

    This data was fed into the software. The results indicated that this was exactly the location of planets/stars in the noon of January 10, 5114 BC. Thus, Shri Ram was born on January 10, 5114 BC, 7121 years ago. As per the Indian calendar, it was the ninth day of Shukla Paksha in Chaitra month and the time was around 12 to 1 noon time. This is exactly the time and date when Ram Navmi is celebrated all over India.

    Shri Ram was born in Ayodhya. This fact can be ascertained from several books written by Indian and foreign authors before and after the birth of Christ – Valmiki Ramayan, Tulsi Ramayan, Kalidasas’ Raghuvansam, Baudh and Jain literature, etc. These books have narrated in great detail the location, rich architecture and beauty of Ayodhya which had many palaces and temples built all over the kingdom.

    Ayodhya was located on the banks of the Saryu river with Ganga and Panchal Pradesh on one side and Mithila on the other side. Normally, 7,000 years is a very long period during which earthquakes, storms, floods and foreign invasions change the course of rivers, destroy the towns/buildings and alter the territories. Therefore, the task of unearthing the facts is monumental. The present Ayodhya has shrunk in size and the rivers have changed their course about 40 km north/south.

    Shri Ram went out of Ayodhya in his childhood, 13th year as per Valmiki Ramayan, with Rishi Vishwamitra who lived in Tapovan (Sidhhashram). From there, he went to Mithila, King Janakas’ kingdom. There, he married Sita after breaking Shiv Dhanusha. Researchers have gone along the route adopted by Shri Ram as narrated in the Valmiki Ramayan and found 23 places which have memorials that commemorate the events related to the life of Shri Ram. These include Shringi Ashram, Ramghat, Tadka Van, Sidhhashram, Gautamashram, Janakpur (now in Nepal), Sita Kund, etc. Memorials are built for great men and not for fictitious characters.

    Date of exile of Shri Ram: It is mentioned in Valmiki Ramayans’ Ayodhya Kand (2/4/18) that Dashratha wanted to make Shri Ram the king because Sun, Mars and Rahu had surrounded his nakshatra and, normally, under such planetary configuration, the king dies or becomes a victim of conspiracies.

    Dashratha’s zodiac sign was Pisces and his nakshatra was Rewati. This planetary configuration was prevailing on the January 5, 5089 BC, and it was on this day that Shri Ram left Ayodhya for 14 years of exile. Thus, he was 25 years old at that time (5114-5089). There are several shlokas in Valmiki Ramayan which indicate that Shri Ram was 25-years-old when he left Ayodhya for exile.

    Valmiki Ramayan refers to the solar eclipse at the time of war with Khardushan in later half of 13th year of Shri Rams’ exile. It is also mentioned it was amavasya day and Mars was in the middle. When this data was entered, the software indicated that there was a solar eclipse on October 7, 5077 BC, amavasya day, which could be seen from Panchvati. The planetary configuration was also the same: Mars was in the middle, on one side were Venus and Mercury and on the other side were Sun and Saturn.

    On the basis of planetary configurations described in various other chapters, the date on which Ravana was killed works out to be December 4, 5076 BC, and Shri Ram completed 14 years of exile on January 2, 5075 BC, and that day was also Navami of Shukla Paksha in Chaitra month. Thus, Shri Ram had come back to Ayodhya at the age of 39 (5114-5075).

    A colleague, Dr Ram Avtar, researched on places visited by Shri Ram during his exile, and, sequentially, moved to the places stated as visited by Shri Ram in the Valmiki Ramayan, starting from Ayodhya he went right upto Rameshwaram. He found 195 places which still have the memorials connected to the events narrated in the Ramayana relating to the life of Shri Ram and Sita. These include Tamsa Tal (Mandah), Shringverpur (Singraur), Bhardwaj Ashram situated near Allahabad, Atri Ashram, Markandaya Ashram (Markundi), Chitrakoot, Pamakuti on banks of Godavari, Panchvati, Sita Sarovar, Ram Kund in Triambakeshwar near Nasik, Shabari Ashram, Kishkindha (village Annagorai), Dhanushkoti and Rameshwar temple.

    In Valmiki Ramayan, it is mentioned that Shri Rams’ army constructed a bridge over the sea between Rameshwaram and Lanka. After crossing this bridge, Shri Rams’ army had defeated Ravana.

    Recently, NASA put pictures on the Internet of a man-made bridge, the ruins of which are lying submerged in Palk Strait between Rameshwaram and Sri Lanka. Recently the Sri Lankan Government had expressed the desire to develop Sita Vatika as a tourist spot. Sri Lankans believe this was Ashok Vatika where Ravana had kept Sita as a prisoner in 5076 BC.

    Indian history has recorded that Shri Ram belonged to the Suryavansh and he was the 64th ruler of this dynasty. The names and other relevant particulars of previous 63 kings are listed in ‘Ayodhya Ka Itihas’ written about 80 years ago by Rai Bahadur Sita Ram.

    Professor Subhash Kak of Lousiana University, in his book, ‘The Astronomical Code of the Rig Veda,’ has also listed 63 ancestors of Shri Ram who ruled over Ayodhya. Sri Rams’ ancestors have been traced out as: Shri Ram, King Dashratha, King Aja, King Raghu, King Dilip and so on. From Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from Bengal to Gujarat, everywhere people believe in the reality of Shri Rams’ existence, particularly in the tribal areas of Himachal, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and the North-East.

    Most of the festivals celebrated in these areas revolve around the events in the life of Shri Ram and Shri Krishna.

    The events and places related to the life of Shri Ram and Sita are true cultural and social heritage of every Indian irrespective of caste and creed. Therefore, it is a common heritage. After all, Shri Ram belonged to the period when Prophet Mohammed or Jesus Christ were not born and Muslim or Christian faiths were unknown to the world. The words Hindu – residents of Hindustan – and Indian – resident of India – were synonymous. India was also known as Bharat – land of knowledge – and Aryavarta – where Aryans live – and Hindustan – land of “Hindus” derived from the word Sindhu.

    During Ram Rajya, the evils of caste system based on birth were non-existent. In fact, Maharishi Valmiki is stated to be of shudra class – scheduled caste – still Sita lived with him as his adopted daughter after she was banished from Ayodhya. Luv and Kush grew up in his ashram as his disciples.

    We need to be proud of the fact that Valmiki was perhaps the first great astronomer and that his study of planetary configurations has stood the test of times. Even the latest computer softwares have corroborated his astronomical calculations, which proves that he did not commit any error.

    Shabri is stated to be belonging to the Bheel tribe. Shri Rams’ army, which succeeded in defeating Ravana, was formed by various tribes from Central and South India. The facts, events and all other details relating to the life of Shri Ram, are the common heritage of all the Indians including scheduled castes, scheduled tribes, Muslims, Christians, etc.

    Prophet Mohammad was born 1,400 years ago. Jesus Christ was born 2,000 years ago. Gautam Buddha was born 2,600 years ago, whereas Ram was born 7,000 years ago. Hence, discovering the details relating to Shri Rams’ life would be lot more difficult as destruction caused by floods, earthquakes and invasions etc., would be far greater. But, should that stop our quest for learning more about our cultural heritage?

    As Indians, let us all take pride in the fact that the Indian civilisation is the most ancient civilisation today. It is certainly more than 10,000 years old. Therefore, let us reject the story of Aryan invasion in India in 1,500 BC as motivated implantation.

    In fact Max Mueller, who was the creator of this theory, had himself rejected it. Let us admit that during the British Rule, we were educated in the schools based on Macaulay school of thinking which believed that everything Indian was inferior and that entire “Indian literature was not worth even one book rack in England.” If there were similarities in certain features of Indian people and people from Central Europe, then automatic inference drawn was that the Aryans coming from Europe invaded India and settled here.

    No one dared of thinking in any other way. Therefore, there is urgency for the historians and all other intellectuals to stop reducing Indian history to myth. There is need to gather, dig out, search, unearth and analyse all the evidences, which would throw more light on ancient Indian civilisation and culture.

    There is need for the print and the electronic media to take note of these facts and create atmosphere which would motivate our young and educated youth to carry out research and unearth true facts about the ancient Indian civilisation and wisdom and would also encourage them to put across the results of their research before the people fearlessly and with a sense of pride!

    As earlier I posted on 4th March 2012 editing to say Ancient Adam bridge Constructed 1,75000 years before over sea linked between Sri Lanka and India found by NASA space images.As per Muslim myth, Adam and EVE(Hawwa)[Origin of Human race-father and mother of human]were leaving in heaven very happily and Jealous Satan made them misguided and they disobeyed Allah’s order and Allah angered and throw out both of them from heaven to earth.Adam fall in Sri Lanka and EVE in India’s land.Adam repented over his act and pray to lord for forgiveness for his mistake.At that time the body structure was so made that he had long and strong body with long hand and long legs and was said that their length of tooth brush may be equal to height of coconut tree and there for they could do the things like digging of mountain,making of path and for making farm land by cleaning the jungle by hands.And he tried and constructed the bridge reached India to meet Hawwa(EVE) and after then he finished his life at Sri Lanka and died in Sri Lanka.Ancient grave of Adam is still existed in Sri Lanka and one can enquire.Then after long time Human race of Adam means His generation came existed and spread all over the world with time capsule making history with different cast,race, culture and nation and due to many beliefs and myth many religion came out in the flow of time with conflicting each other, existed with deferential phenomena of God existance.But there is only one God who created the Whole universe in the service of mankind which is best creation among universal .That is why he wants to pray to him by all Adam generation to accept his supremo to get favour of Him.

    I may or may not believe dis, but one is true, Indian civilization is the most ancient one, since, this is the place where the population density is the most heavy. That is from years and years generations and generations of people are evolved. This increases the probability of my statement that an ancient civilization more nearer to this place is of the most ancient people of the world. Also, India even now bears most dozens of people, than any other country do. You might think China has more population than ours, but China is 2 times more in area and remember that countries are seperated by humans and not gods or nature at the most circumstances, unlike continents. Also, I believe that genetical codes of Indian youngs are of more selfishness than any other country; and hence by the statement of stephen Hawking “Human generations are increasing there genetical codes of selfishness, generations by generations”, it logically gives the answer of the people of our Indus valley civilization are of more years of history than any others do have.

    Known is a drop, Unknown is the ocean..So, instead of arguing among ourselves, it is better if we could share knowledge and wisdom about our universe and mother earth in order to understand her better..Is it so important now to now about the existence of a bridge instead finding solution for millions of people who actually dying everyday of hunger and war?

    I am Indian origin and I have so many friends across India but there is only one question I always ask them and often they could not answer me. As an Indian Origin, I am always proud of my heritage and history. My Indian friends always proud of their 2020 vision, military technology, scientific and IT advancement…But how many of you actually visited India? Can we count the poor people there? We do have a statistic on Indian migrants in overseas but do we have statistic on the kids begging on street/temple/etc..? Do we have statistic on dying kids due to lack of proper food? Have you guys actually know that India has one of the lowest grade of infrastructure in the world compared to the brains they have?

    Those who actually commenting in the page I guess mostly living a luxury life in overseas (correct me if I am wrong) so you guys have the lavish time to update on this page while sipping your Starbucks coffee but think of those in our motherland.

    Even though I am in overseas too as my grand dad came here for trade long time ago, my dad was born here and me too. But I am in the process of applying a PIO so that one day, I would return back to my motherland because there is where I belong.

    So instead of proving ancient facts, lets try to do something for our brothers and sisters in our mother land. We have lot more serious issue to deal with rather than discussing an entity under water.

    Sorry if I offended anybody but just my view on our mentality….Sai Ram..

But this Lanka actually is 800 miles to the west of India, as stated in the Ramayana. So Sri Lanka is not the Lanka of Ravana. When Srila Prabhupada heard this, He laughed and said that this is another one of the misconceptions of the scientists smashed.”

    I think whether the bridge is man made or not is irrelevant. Hinduism is a symbolic religion and everyone seems to be taking everything they have read and everything that was discovered too literally. But it is as cool as ever that this bridge does exist because it leads to endless debates on religion and philosophy. What are those? Well philosophy is questions that can never be answered and religion is answers that must never be questioned. So go on be religious be philosophical answer questions and question answers.

    • RABINDRA NATH PADHI says:

      10,000 years ago with the end of the last ice age ,this shoal was under fairly deep water. It was above water more than 20,000 years ago. 175,000 years ago humans did not know the use of metals. Ramayan period can not be older than 5,000 years.The shoal is limestone (formed from skeletons of corals) overlying sand beds. The rectangular blocks are due to weathering.Such a man made feature would mean a large quarrying , which is not seen any where with in transportable distance. No hard rock like charnockite or granite is found in the shoal. The composition and the curvature do not indicate that it is man made , rather it shows to be an acretional feature formed by ocean waves and currents. The imageries only show a part of ithe morphology and not structure, chemistry, petrology, mineralogy and sedimentation.This is a geologist’s work and what has been done by GSI favours natural fomation of the shoal.This feature klooks more like a tombolo. It is like an isthumus.It certainly is not made by any humans.Valmiki must have known the geology andgeography of th area well to incorpate this land bridge into his great epic..I am a retired Deputy Director General of GSI and I am stating all this on the basis of scientific data available till date and in spite of my Hindu emotions I can not support your theory of the Setubandh being man made.
      1.7 million years ago India was not part of Australia . It was already with Asia.

  149. Common Sense says:

    I was impressed after going through Mr. Ashok Kumar’s narrative – it is written in vivid detail. Also, these facts are recorded in various historical texts, now considered sacred that corroborate the astronomical positions which form an integral part of Indian life even today (think: your ‘janma kundli’)
    As to the ‘Name’ of the bridge, obviously, you cannot expect the NASA to name it Rama Sethu, given the implications it will carry – (A scientific Institution actually supporting a religion – and Hinduism, at that!)
    A rose by any other name is still a rose, guys! So I am happy that these facts have come to light, the name notwithstanding. There are a few more scientific discoveries that support what is written in our sacred texts. Do check out the discovery series on how Mohenjo-daro and Harrappa cities were wiped out at a stroke.

    Adam, for the record, is not western. It has Aryan origins.
    In modern farci, “Ah-Dam,” means mankind or humanity.

    So to call this adam’s bridge,
    It literally means, humanities bridge
    It is symbolic as a symbol of the first signs of humans developing technologies in pre history.

    On a different note, the age cannot be possible. 1.7 million years is pre-human sapien. The ape army notwithstanding, most sources put this at 125 thousand years old, which makes it the oldest known human creation.

    Hello I have been raised belonging to no particular religion, and have been able to choose my own, but I do not see the point in believing blindly in one thing, I personally believe that a god exists somewhere but I do not think that people should fight over these things, which is what this has been turned into. Just believe what you believe and allow others to do the same. Thank you for your time

    • Hare Krishna Tleragon

      You are correct. There is no point in blindly believing in anything. That is not the point at all. Blind faith. That is useless. However, within humanity there is a deep desire to know the truth. So if you can find the truth then that is a very satisfying thing. So Krishna consciousness is not blind faith. It is the absolute truth. And you can directly and very tangibly experience Krishna and Krishna consciousness. So it is not blind faith.

      As far as the bridge between India and Sri Lanka, Lord Rama built such a bridge thousands of years ago, exactly where this bridge is today. So it is a historical thing. Everything in the Vedas is histroy. And gradually in India the Indian Archeology Survey people are rediscovering all the historical places and cities described in the Vedas. They have discovered ancient battlefields where there is evidence of nuclear weapons being detonated, they have discovered elaborate cities underneath the sea. So many wonderful things.

      So I would suggest that you investigate Krishna consciousness more deeply by reading the books of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada which you can purchase at http://www.KrishnaStore.com or read online at http://www.PrabhupadaBooks.com

      If you spend a little time to read the books you will find the answers to all your questions and a lot more.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

About the Author

My first contact with a Hare Krishna was a most merciful Mataji in Oxford Street, London who sold me a "Higher Taste" cook book in 1984 while I was on holidays there. I started seriously reading Srila Prabhupada's books in Australia 1985 and by 1986 Srila Prabhupada had convinced me "Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead" and "we should surrender to Krishna." I joined the Hare Krishnas in Perth, Western Australia in 1986. Since then I have been chanting Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, reading and distributing Srila Prabhupada's books and preaching as much as I can. That's my life and full-time occupation now really. I like it more than anything I've ever experienced before. Srila Prabhupada's books are so amazing... Even after reading them all many times they're still fresh and new. They are truly transcendental! That's it really. Now I'm just hankering to once again see the world chant Hare Krishna, dance and feast and float away in the ecstasy of Lord Caitanya's Sankirtana movement as it did in Srila Prabhupada's physical presence. Let the whole world drown in the ecstatic flood of love of Krishna!
