The connection between the ancient cultures is truly remarkable.
In my search for the presence/influence of Sanatana Dharma/Hinduism among the ancient world cultures, I have found that Sanatana Dharma pervaded all the ancient cultures and preceded them.
As a matter of fact, I have been able to verify some of Sanatana Dharma characters,events and Timeline through these cultures.
Like the presence of Ayur Devatas in Siberia,
Hanuman in Honduras,
Shiva and Vishnu Natural Temples in Grand Canyon,
Rama’s Chapel in Ur,Iraq,
Shiva temple in Petra Jordan,
Firsr Pharoah of Egypt being the son of Sagara of Solar Dynasty,to which Lord Rama belongs,
Krishna’s son built a city in Russia,Port Baizhyn,……
That Sanatana Dharma was the precursor to Sumerian and Mesoamerican cultures,including Mayans.
I have just come across information that would contribute additional evidence to my assertion that Mesopotamian and Mesoamerican civilization had Sanatana Dharma roots.
The presence of Manasa Devi!
‘Manasā, also Mansa Devi, is a folk goddess of snakes, worshipped mainly in and other parts of and northeastern , chiefly for the prevention and cure of snakebite and also for fertility and prosperity. Manasa is the sister of , king of (snakes) and wife of sage .She is also known as Vishahara (the destroyer of poison), Nityā (eternal) and Padmavati.’…….
Manasa is depicted as a woman covered with snakes, sitting on a or standing upon a snake. She is sheltered by the canopy of the hoods of seven . Sometimes, she is depicted with a child on her lap
The seven headed serpent sculpture is found in Vera Cruz,Mexico.
Kucumatz is equivalent to the Mayan resurrection god Kuculcan and the Aztec culture-hero, moon-god and creator of humanity, Queztalcoatl (both these names mean ‘feathered serpent’). Hunbatz Men, a modern Mayan daykeeper and ceremonial leader, has attempted to reconstruct the initiatory sciences of the ancient Maya in his book Secrets of Mayan Science/Religion.
In analysing etymology and surviving Mayan temples, he concludes that the Mayan religion was based around a system of seven energy centres, very similar to the Hindu chakras. In both systems, the realization of a divine serpent-power is the goal. In Tantra, it is Kundalini. In Mayan tradition, the serpent is Kuculcan, but there is also the Mayan word k?ultanlilni—built up from k’u (‘sacred’), k’ul (‘coccyx’, the base of the spine), tan (‘place’), lil (‘vibration’), and ni (‘nose’). This amalgamated word embodies the Mayan equivalent of a yogic tradition. Men also discusses a seven-headed serpent form carved on a monolith in Aparicio, Veracruz, Mexico, and notes that the Buddha was bitten by a seven-headed serpent while in the river of initiation. “This serpent is called chapat in India. Curiously, the people of the Yucatan, Mexico have the same word and it, too, refers to the seven-headed serpent, just as in India.”
