Ancient history of Russia is intriguing.
Recorded history of Russia before Christianity is obscure.
Available information states that Russia was founded(?) In 882 AD.
‘The traditional beginning of Russian history is 862 A.D. Kievan Rus‘, the first united East Slavic state, was founded in 882. The state adopted Christianity from the Byzantine Empire in 988, beginning with the synthesis of Byzantine and Slavic cultures that defined Russian culture for the next millennium. Kievan Rus’ ultimately disintegrated as a state because of the Mongol invasion of Rus’ in 1237–1240 and the death of about half the population of Rus’. (History of Russia )
‘The early history of Russia, like those of many countries, is one of migrating peoples and ancient kingdoms. In fact, early Russia was not exactly “Russia,” but a collection of cities that gradually coalesced into an empire. I n the early part of the ninth century, as part of the same great movement that brough the Danes to England and the Norsemen to Western Europe, a Scandanavian people known as the Varangians crossed the Baltic Sea and landed in Eastern Europe. The leader of the Varangians was the semilegendary warrior Rurik, who led his people in 862 to the city of Novgorod on the Volkhov River. Whether Rurik took the city by force or was invited to rule there, he certainly invested the city. From Novgorod, Rurik’s successor Oleg extended the power of the city southward. In 882, he gained control of Kiev, a Slavic city that had arisen along the Dnepr Riveraround the 5th century. Oleg’s attainment of rule over Kiev marked the first establishment of a unified, dynastic state in the region. Kiev became the center of a trade route between Scandinavia and Constantinople, and Kievan Rus’, as the empire came to be known, flourished for the next three hundredyears.’
It is also stated that Russia was founded when the Eastern Slavs and Finnish-Ugraic People.
To me this seems to be a contradiction.
The Uyghurs were present much, much earlier than the time assigned here.
The same time frame may be assigned Eastern Slavics.
Available archeological evidence indicates the presence of an advanced civilization in Russia.
1. Narada Mountain in Russia.
Georgiev illustrates that in 1927 a detachment of geologists “discovered” the highest mountain in the Urals. The mountain was called Narada by the local population, and interestingly the ancient Indian epics describe the great sage Narada as living in the north. But since it was the 10thanniversary of the October Revolution, the geologists decided to mark the event and rename the mountain as Narodnoy – or People. And that’s what it is now called in all geographic references and on all maps.”
2.Arkaim Rig vedic Mandala city in Russia.
They realized that its lay-out, the ground-plan of Arkaim, is related to the Mandala principle, a square inside a circle – one of the basic sacred symbols of Buddhist philosophy.
The word Mandala is translated as a circle or disk. In the ancient Rig-Veda writings, where it has been first described, the word has a set of values: a wheel, a ring, the country, space, society, gathering.
The symbolic meaning of a Mandala is understood all over the world as a model of the Universe, even of the entire cosmos, where the two most important principles present in our Universe are represented in the form of a circle and a square. Arkaim, with its dwellings, having adjoining rooms, might possibly represent the “wheel of time”, where every aspect is defined by the previous one and in turn, defines the next one.
3.Narahari Vishnu in Russia.
Russia is sthree varsha,
Amrvathi, the capital of Indra, the chief of Devas was in Russia,
Yagnyavalkya lived in Russia,
Lord Krishna’s son, Pradhyumna founded a city Port Baijin, Russis,
The Vedas were called Santi Veda,…..
River Moksha is found in Russia…..
Narada Mountain called as Narodnya Mountain is found in the Urals,
There is evidence galore.
I had also written on a Vishnu idol being found in Russia.
Now there is more evidence on this idol of Lord Vishnu.
4.Russia is Sthree Varsha .
Lahore was the kingdom of Lava, son of Rama. Read my post on this.
Peshawar was the kingdom of Pushkalavathy ruled by Pushkala, son of Bharatha.
These two cities were established during the reign of Rama, the son of Dasaratha. These cities are in the route toKekaya, today’s Kazaksthan which was the maternal land of Kaikeyi, mother of Bhratha. One has to cross riverChakshus to reach Kekaya. This river is now known as Oxus . It is shown in blue colour in this picture”’
At the time of Ramayana,Russia was a part of Bharata Varsha and Kaikeyi of Ramayana who is the Mother of Bharatha and step mother of Lord Rama was boron in Russia.
It may be noted that the Rig Veda was composed in Arctic Russia,Sanskrit is the source of Russia,Lake Baikal was Indra’s Vaikanasa Theertha.
So much so that Russian researchers have claimed Vedas to be from Russia,they have Perun Veda in Russia,and that the Sanatana Dharma was from Russia and it was Aryan!
Shall be writing on Russia,the Home of Sanatana Dharma.
