The reason, as I have mentioned in the article is that providing too many Hyperlinks in an article affects the site technically.
Many have corresponded on the authenticity of the statements I have made in these articles and requested details.
My intention is to provide information on Indian History and the Purana, Ithihahasa and The Vedas that they are not stories or fantasies but facts and history ,aprt from conveying deep philosophical thoughts.
Now, who are the Rishis of the Gayatri Mantra and the Chief Rishi who released the Gayatri Mantra?
The Rishi who revealed the Gayatri Mantra is Sage Visvamitra.
The Rishis, according the Nyasa we recite for the Gaytri are seven in number..
Tamil Classics also speak of Kanchi,and the Sangam Literature calls it as Kanchi Mudur,Ancient Kanchi.( The Term Mudur is used only for two cities (Mudur),Madurai and Kanchi).
These two cities are quite ancient if one goes through these references.
A Brahmin from Kanchi founded Cambodia Vietnam Thailand
Kanchi tribe is mentioned in the Mahabharata Thus,
There was a Dravida Civilization in the South before or started with Manu in the south of Vindhyas,
The tribes of Dravidas were left behind by Manu when he left for Ayodhya,
Sage Vasista stayed in the South,
Later when Viswamitra banished his sons to the south, Dravida civilization was in existence during the Ramayana period,
Dravidians were called as Dasyus because of their way of Life was different from Sanatana Dharam though they followed the Sanatana Dharma.
These Dravidian tribes included the ancestors of Greeks, other European tribes, Chinese and Huns.
Some Rishis have been advisers to Kings, like Vasishta, no Siddha is associated as an adviser to King.
All Siddhas have been Rishis while not all Rishis were Siddhas.
The Yoga system by the Siddhas is slightly different from the one By Patanjali in Sanskrit, though Patanjali is from South and a Siddha.
Siddhas have developed alternate system of medicine based on hers found in the South, the Rishis , based on the herbs found in the North.
