Irish , ‘People(s) / Tribe(s) Of the Goddess Danu’

I have written articles on the migration of the Peoples of the world.

I have mentioned that whenever there was a surge of migration into Europe , there was a cataclysm. mostly , a Tsunami in India, then called Bharata Varsha

During one such Tsunami , Satyavrata Manu,also called as Vaivasvatha Manu, the ancestor of Lord Rama migrated to Ayodhya to found the Ikshvaku Dynasty.

Ikshvaku was Manus son.

When we look into the history of the ancient Magyars, Bulgars, we shall find a migration coinciding with a natural calamity in India.

Please read my post on Human  Migration.

Shiva and his son Ganesha left through the Middle East, traversing through Europe the area now called as Britain, Ireland, Scotland, Africa,Americas before reaching the Arctic.

The Rig Veda was composed in the Arctic.

Then a group returned to India through Russia and Iran into India, in their wake leaving trail of their culture in Russia, where we find Arkaim , Hanuman Temple , the Legend of Kubera ,Sthree Kingdom and many more.

The group which went through the middle east and the places mentioned in the article too left their marks in their Journey.

One would find more of Shiva Ganesha artifacts in the regions they traveled.

One finds the Nazca Lines in Peru, Shiva temple in Petra Jordan,Shiva Linga in Mecca,Mount Meru in Tanzania, Tamil influence among the Incas, Sanatana Dharma ancestry of the Mayas.

One group , that of the Germanic tribe,played an important role in the formation of Europe.

The Origin of germanic tribe has been explained in my article on Danube, the River of Danu.

Danu is the primeval waters which this deity perhaps embodied.

उत्तरा सूरधरः पुत्र आसीद दानुः शये सहवत्सा न धेनुः ||
uttarā sūradharaḥ putra āsīd dānuḥ śaye sahavatsā na dhenuḥ ||
The mother was above, the son was under and like a cow beside her calf lay Danu. 1.32.18 Rig Veda.
Danu was the Mother of Vrtra. who was killed by Indra, the Chief of the Devatas.
Danu was later described as the daughter of Daksha and wife Sage Kashyapa.
She is described as the Mother of the Danavas.

As a word for “rain” or “liquid”, dānu is compared to Avestan dānu “river”, and further to river names like Don, Danube, Dneiper, Dniestr, etc. There is also a Danu river in Nepal. The “liquid” word is mostly neuter, but appears as feminine in RV 1.54.

Now to the Celts and the Irish.

Irish Mythology states that they are ,

Tuath(a) Dé Danan,

The Tuath(a) Dé Danann (usually translated as “people(s)/tribe(s) of the goddess Danu”), also known by the earlier name Tuath Dé (“tribe of the gods”),[1] are a race of supernaturally-gifted people in Irish mythology. They are thought to represent the main deities of pre-ChristianGaelic Ireland.

Tuath(a) Dé Danan descended from Nemed .

According to the tradition, he is the leader of the third group of people to settle inIreland, who are referred to as the Muintir Nemid (Muintir Neimhidh, “people of Nemed”), Clann Nemid (Clann Neimhidh, “offspring of Nemed”) or Nemedians. The name ‘Nemed’ itself means “privileged” or “holy”.[1]

Daksha Prajapathi, Kashyapa and Danu were described as Holy as the progenitors of the Human Race.

Dakasha is the Chief of Mankind.

Kashyapa was the father of devas, Asuras and Danavas.

Giving birth to Celtic culture, the sacred mother Danube river was named for the Celtic mother Goddess Danu. Danu is also the name of an early Hindu mother Goddess of primeval waters. The descendants of the Goddess Danu, in both Celtic and Hindu culture, are called Children of Danu.

Danu (2016) by Radmer Lenasch, This is a tribute to the Celtic Goddess Danu combining her with the sentiment of the water bearer. Water is to purify and that is the theme of this time.
