Kumari Kandam mentioned in Kandha Puranam, Dhwaraka mentioned in Mahabharata, Naval Island mentioned in Silapadhigaram, lemuria continent searched by number of researchers all denote the country of Israel and we will see about it in a detailed manner. The literary name of Lord Murugan mentioned in Kandhapuranam is Kumaravel Pandiyan, and the country is called after his name. Kandha Puranam talks about a king named Barathan and the division of the lands to the twelve tribes after they had entered the Promised Land. The book also tells that the sages or saints lived in that country and they had the practice of reciting scriptures. In the similar manner, prophets or saints lived in the country of Israel. Kabilar in his book has mentioned about Vet Dhwaraka, and noted that these two countries were destroyed by a saint’s curse named Kazhathalai. The book also mentions about the king Irungovel who belonged to the Velir tribe. All these references denote the country of Israel. Three literary academies mentioned in the Iraiyanar Agaporul are also given in the Holy Bible. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy denotes the first literary academic age, Joshua to Esther denotes the second literary academic age. The third literary academy is given in the books after the division of Israel into two, and so we now have only the books written during the third literary academic age. Next, we will go back to Kumaravel pandiyan. This Pandiyan is mentioned as Pandu in Mahabharata, and his sons as Pandavargal. So, from this we can conclude that both these incidents are one and the same.
The life incidents of Lord Murugan are given clearly in the book Thirumurugattrupadai, written by Nakeerar. The six abodes of Lord Muruga are similar to the life of Israel (Jacob), his six main life incidents. Let us now see about it. The birthday of Lord Muruga is celebrated as Karthigai Deepam in Tamilnadu, it is celebrated as Deepa Oli Naal( Festival of Lights) one month before in North India, and celebrated as Hanukkah ( Festival of Lights) in Israel. All these three festivals denote one and the same. The books Kandha Puranam , Thirumurugaattrupadai and so on were written with auditory messages known to them, these were written so that the future generations would know where they had come from, and this is the reason why these stories have slight difference when compared to Bible. The first abode is Pazhani Mount where Lord Muruga stood as a Religious Mendicant. This incident is similar to Jacob getting the blessings of Esau. Jacob and Esau were the sons of Isaac and Rebecca. Isaac on his death bed asked Esau to prepare a meal so that Isaac would eat and bless him. Rebecca, who heard this, told Jacob (the younger son) that she would prepare the meal and insisted Jacob to get the blessings of Esau. Jacob then went to the house of his uncle Laban and worked for twenty years. This incident is compared to Lord Murugan who stood as a religious mendicant in Pazhani mount. Jacob, while on his way to Laban’s country, it becomes dark and so keeps a stone under his head and sleeps. He then had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the Earth, with its top reaching to Heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it, and so the place was named as Bethel (Gate of heaven). This incident is similar to the story said in Swami Mount. Next Jacob was in love with Rachel, the younger daughter of Laban, and so he worked as a slave for seven years to get married to Rachel. But at the end of seven years. Laban tricks Jacob and gets him married to Leah, his elder daughter. This incident is compared to the story of Murugan – Deivanai marriage said in Thiruparangundram. Next, we see that Jacob worked another seven years to marry Rachel whom he actually loved. This is similar to Murugan – Valli marriage, story said in Thiruthani mount. Jacob after twenty years with Laban, moves back to his country along with his family and all his wealth. There on his way, the angels of God met him and so the place was called Mahanaim. Jacob, on his way, crossed a river leaving behind his family and servants and stays there alone. There an Angel of God wrestles with Jacob. When the man saw that He could not overpower him, He touched the socket of Jacob’s hip, so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. Then the man blessed Jacob and named him as Israel. This incident is similar to the story said in Tiruchendur. Here it is said as Soorasamharam , denoting Lord Murugan fought with a demon. Thus the place was named as Peniel meaning “I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared”. This same incident is said in Mahabharata as fight between Bheeshma and Parasurama but actually it was not Bheeshma who fought, it was Pandu, because Israel (Jacob), Pandu in Mahabharata and Kumaravel Pandiyan , Tamil literary figure all denotes one person in common. This Kumaravel Pandiyan is named after Qumran caves in Israel, where the Dead Sea scrolls have been found. From this we can clearly understand that the word Kumari Kandam denotes none other than the country of Israel. The book Iraiyanar Agaporul mentions about three literary academies (SANGAM). The place where these literary academies or societies are located is mentioned in a book written by Sitrambala Kavirayar.
“ Vengadam kumari theembunal powathu”
Vengadam and kumari on either sides, theembunal refers to River Jordan, powam refers to the sea.
Vaisambayanar, a tamil poet has written ,
Perumalai orupurathey Thirumalai marupurathey,
Perungadal oru purathey Irungadal Marupurathey…
All these denote the country of Israel. Perumalai refers to Mount Lebanon; Thirumalai refers to Mount Sinai which is opposite to it. Perungadal refers to the Mediterranean sea, Irungadal refers to the sea of Galilee. Silapadhikaaram mentions the types of land where Kumari Kandam was situated .
- El thenga naadu
- El Madurai naadu
- El kunakaarai naadu
- El pinpaalai naadu
- El munpaalai naadu
- El kundra naadu
- El thurumbanai naadu
Here in Tamil literature, El denotes Elu( number seven). But it is actually El meaning the supreme deity. El(Hebrew), Al( Arabic) and Vel (Tamil) all denote One supreme deity.
Thuvarai and Vet Dhwaraka; Vengadam and Then Kumari – these places mentioned in Tamil Literature have been destroyed. In the similar manner, North and South Israel had been a deserted place and it was formed back as a country only in the year 1948.
Navalar inTamil means poets or saints and the word Navalam Island means a small country surrounded by ocean of salt water. We know the sea water is generally salty in nature but this navalam island mentions about salt sea (Dead Sea) in particular Dead Sea in Israel. Next we shall move on to Lemuria. In Tamil it can be divided as Ilai and Moriah . Ilai in Arabic means Jewish Kings and Moriah refers to a country. This has references in the Holy Bible. This Lemuria refers to nothing but the southern Judea (or Israel). This country had been a desert for nearly two thousand years. The references in Tamil Literature mention that Lemuria or Kumari Kandam or Navalam Island had been destroyed by Tsunami.
The book of Amos , in the Holy Bible chapter one and verse one talks about the massive earthquake during the time of King Uzziah of Judea and King Jeroboam in North Israel and this happened only a few years before the exile of Northern Israelites. Zechariah chapter fourteen verses five also add more proof to this incident. A survey had been taken in recent times about the Earthquake in Israel. The result was that a massive earthquake had taken place. We know that Tsunami occurs following an earthquake, and it is the main reason why people mistook the Jewish Diaspora as Tsunami destruction.
The Puranas Ramayana, Mahabharata has proofs in the Holy Bible. The Mahabharata is nothing but the exodus of people from Egypt to Canaan. Moses has been portrayed as Lord Krishna. Next in Ramayana, King David from the Holy Bible is said as Ravanaa. The other name of Ravanaa is Dhasamugan. Dhasamugan in Ramayana and Dhasarathan in Mahabharata denote the person Ravanaa. We can see all these in the upcoming blogs. Thank you.
