The ancestors of the Europeans may be traced back to Sanatana Dharma.
Celts,Gauls,Huns all go back to Sanatana Dharma people.
When one reads the origins of the people of Europe,one would find that there were some local tribes in an area and more people migrated to the area from Asia or from the east.
The area in question may be Bulgaria,Romania or areas bordering Turkey or the Middle east.
The people of these areas can be traced to Mesopotamian,Sumerian and Minoan civilizations.
And the migration from the east or Asia generally coincides(?)with the Great Flood recorded in Hindu texts,Tamil classics as in all religious texts of the world.
Please read my article on Humam migration.
The Sanatana Dharma origin of the Nordic,Vikings,Celts have ben explained in my earlier articles.
One may find the evidence from archeology and through philoarcheology.
For more please google the country name/race +Hinduism+ramanan50.
The evidence of Sanatana Dharma presence in France is difficult to come by as I am handicapped by my ignorance of French language.
However I understand from my French friends,who are regular readers of my blog that they are also of the opinion that most of of their pre Christian History is vague and it is bing dismissed as Paganism.
I shall be writing on the origin of the word Pagan and the Paganism and how it is related to if not Sanatana Dharma Polytheism.
I have foud two pieces of Evidence lnking Hinduism and pre Christian France.
One is a Megalith site .
‘Research has been going on whether the standing stones of Carnac in France were burial plots or whether their use was astronomical in nature. No matter what the future (unbiased) science will reveal, one thing is established, the stones of Carnac are aligned to the sun and moon in a special way.
Sun Temples around the world have similar names – for example: the ‘Konark’ temple of India and the ‘Karnak’ Temple of Egypt. In Sanskrit ‘Konark’ is a combination word, ‘kona’ (कोण) meaning ‘angle’ and ‘ark’ (अर्क) meaning the ‘sun’. ..
The Carnac complex in France is located at the unique latitude at which the solstice sun, both summer and winter, form a perfect Pythagorean triangle relative to the parallel of latitude…
The etymology of the name ‘Carnac’ is unknown, but if we were to apply Sanskrit to decode the meaning, of the word ‘Carnac’ – this is what we arrive at:
1. ‘Kar-Ark’ : ‘kar’ (कर) means ‘sunbeam’. ‘Ark’ (अर्क) means ‘sun’. Karark (कर-अर्क) means ‘sunbeam from the sun’ or ‘ray of light from the sun’.
2. ‘Kar-nak’ : kar (कर) means ‘sunbeam’, ‘nak’ (नक्) means ‘night. Karnak means ‘Ray of Light at Night’. This could have been in reference to the Moon.
3. ‘Kaar-ark’: ‘Kaar’ (कार) means ‘act of worship’ or hymn of praise’. ‘Ark’ (अर्क) is ‘sun’. ‘Kaar-ark’ could thereforebhave been a place of worship for the sun, that is, a Sun Temple.
4. Kar-naksh: Kar (कर) means ‘Sunbeam’. Naksh (नक्ष्) means ‘approach or come near’. In that sense Carnac would mean ‘From where the sunbeam approaches’.
France’s biggest cathedral the Noire Dame in Paris meaning Our Goddess, used to be in pre-Christian times the temple of the Vedic Mother Goddess Bhagawati alias Parameshwari.
Though rebuilt as a Christian shrine it scrupulously retains its Vedic associations.
For instance the figures of men, women and animals that decorate its exterior from top to bottom, are a feature of holy Vedic architecture.
On the edifice are also sketched in bold relief the 12 zodiacal signs and two books, one open and the other shut.
One book represents the Vedas and the other the sacred chant of the Vedic goddess.
Important people visiting the shrine are made to pull off their socks and shoes and have their feet reverently washed near the altar as a mark of benediction, which is a Vedic ritual.
More research is required.
