  • The Lost Continent of Lemuria

    The Lost Continent of Lemuria

    Myths and Realities

     
    The lost continent of Lemuria (Mu) was originally referenced in the works of several 19th century scientists.  Observing similarities between the geology and fauna of India and Madagascar, some scientists theorized that there once existed a huge land mass (Lemuria) in the Indian Ocean that spanned the two locales.  As with Atlantis, the days of Lemuria came to an end with a cataclysmic natural disaster that sank the continent into the sea.
     

    Lemuria was originally an hypothesised continent in the southern Indian Ocean, proposed in 1860 by the geologist William T Blandford (1832-1905) as a means of explaining the presence of identical Permian rocks in South Africa and Gondwana (in southern India). Geologists noted that strata of Permian age in India, South Africa, Australia, and South America (245 to 286 million years ago) were almost identical in the types of sedimentary rocks that comprised them. In addition, these strata on these continents contained identical fossils of land plants, e.g. cordaites and "Glossopteris" and land animals, e.g. Therapsids. 

    Because these land plants and animals could not have crossed the open sea and continents were thought to be immobile, geologists explained the presence of identical fossil plants and animals on India, Africa, South America, and Australia by postulating the existence of land bridges and even whole continents that had long since sunk beneath the oceans. In 1864, the English zoologist Philip Lutley Sclater (1829-1913) suggested the name Lemuria for this land bridge, and the name stuck.

    Around the same time, Ernst Häckel (1834-1919), a German biologist, saw this as an explanation for the presence of lemurs in Madagascar and south-east Asia; he also proposed that lemurs were our ancestors and that this land bridge was the original home of humanity.

    Haekel used it to explain the distribution of lemurs in Africa, India, Madagascar, and Malaya Peninsula. He proposed that this hypothetical land-bridge had stayed above water long enough for it have served as the means by which lemurs spread into these areas. The English biologist, Philip L. Scalter named this land bridge "Lemuria" because of its hypothesized association with lemurs. Thus, Lemuria was neither named nor conceived of by prehistoric people, but by geologists and biologists in the 1800s.

    When plate tectonics and other more prosaic theories better explained the distribution of strata, fossils, and lemurs, it was widely accepted that Lemuria and other such continents and land bridges never really existed, e.g. Wicander and Monroe (1989).

    Lemuria might have vanished into the realm of discarded evolutionary theories, had it not been for the Theosophists and, especially, Helena Petrovska Blavatsky (1831-1891). She had a varied background (from sweatshop worker to circus bareback rider, from mistress of a Slovenian singer to professional pianist) and in the 1870s was living in New York, where she discovered that she could find easy work as a medium. In 1875 she and her partner, Henry Steel Olcott (1832-1907), a New York lawyer who had left his family for her, founded the Theosophical Society and moved to India.

    In 1882, Madame Blavatsky sent letters written by her alleged Master, Koot Hoomi Lal Sing (alleged to have ‘ascended’ in 1889), to an Anglo-Indian newspaper editor, although handwriting analysis later showed she had written them herself. The letters contained an eclectic mix of Western occultism and Indian mysticism, revealing a seven-based cosmology in which there are seven planes of existence, seven Root Races of humanity, seven bodies possessed by each human being and seven cycles of evolution. This later formed the basis of a massive work, The Secret Doctrine (1888), written in Europe after she had been forced to leave India when accomplices threatened to expose her magic feats as fraudulent.

    Mme Blavatsky claimed that The Secret Doctrine was based on a lost Atlantean religious work, which she called The Stanzas of Dzyan, supposed to be the first book ever written. According to the Stanzas as revealed by Mme Blavatsky, the first humans had existed only on an astral plane, living in the ‘Imperishable Land’ at the North Pole. The Second Root Race also lived in the arctic, on the lost continent of Hyperborea. Like most other ‘lost continents’, Hyperborea broke up and sank beneath the icy waters of the Arctic Ocean. The third Root Race comprised the Lemurians. They were bandy-legged, egg-laying hermaphrodite apes (some with four arms, some with eyes in the back of their head), 3.7 m (twelve feet) tall. They were contemporary with dinosaurs, which they kept as domestic animals. When the Lemurians discovered sex, their fate was sealed and the continent followed Hyperborea in sinking beneath the waves. The offspring of the Lemurians’ sexual adventures was the fourth Root Race: fully human Atlanteans, guided into human form by adepts from Venus. After the drowning of Atlantis, the fifth Root Race evolved (in other words, ourselves); the sixth Root Race is about to evolve in North America, while the seventh will one day develop in South America.

    The ordinary members of the Theosophical Society (who included perfectly rational and intelligent people) never seemed to see through Mme Blavatsky’s bizarre charade. She had made little effort to cover her tracks and her true history is easily read by those who wish to do so, but the Theosophical Society’s official biography resolutely ignores the facts to glorify its founder. It continues to regard Blavatsky as a saint and Lemuria and the rest as continents that once existed. The growing scientific understanding of geology has resulted in a chasm between the beliefs of Theosophy and scientific knowledge. The Society still exists, but no longer has a large or influential membership. Nevertheless, it is an important source for much of the New Age belief system.

    The English Theosophist W. Scott-Elliot, who said he received his knowledge from the Theosophical Masters by "astral clairvoyance", writes in The Story of Atlantis & The Lost Lemuria (1896), that the sexual exploits of the Lemurians so revolted the spiritual beings, the Lhas, that they refused to follow the cosmic plan of becoming the first to incarnate into the bodies of the Lemurians. Scott-Elliot located his Lemuria not only in the Indian Ocean: He described it as stretching from the east coast of Africa across the Indian AND the Pacific Oceans.

    A historically and biblically known event the Great Flood finally destroyed the great continent of Lemuria. There are  different stories that explain the origin of the great flood and the reasons. What was left behind after the great flood was a whole new world. The old histories of humanity had been virtually flooded away and all that was left were the oral stories and legends.

  • Is Sri Lanka part of Lemuria?

     Is Sri Lanka part of Lemuria?

    There are many maps and other records pointing to us indicating Sri Lanka was once a part of a great land mass in the past. In the ancient folklore and stories about King Ravana says that his ancestors were the kings and queens of that great land next to India.( So was it a seperate land governed by a diffent race?)

    In some of the writings talks Indian Suras were not very happy about the power these people of that land held and plotted to kill those kings often. At that time these races (of Sri Lanka) were worhsiping the sun while the Indians worshiped Devas/ Gods. Then again in Indian famous Ramayanaya talks about Ravana being a demon king, but that does not seems to be the case according to Sri Lankans ancient writings. Writings says he was part of a Yakka Gothraya (race)  also some records mentioned him being part of  a race called Asura who were blue colored humans. 

    Even in Ptolemy's map, Sri Lanka has been declared a big state. Today, Sri Lanka is a small country in the world. But when we look at these maps we can see Sri Lanka being part of larger country that expanded up to Madagascar and on the other side reaching up to Australia. The question is what happened to this land?

    NASA satalite image of a supposed Adams bridge that Rama took to come to  Sri Lanka.

    Is this the mythical  ‘lost continent’ of Lemuria, or is this another land mass and its story that has been lost to us.?

    The term Lemuria has its origins in the latter part of the 19 th century. The English geologist Philip Sclater was puzzled by the presence of lemur fossils in Madagascar and India but not in mainland Africa and the Middle East. Thus, in his 1864 article entitled ‘The Mammals of Madagascar’, Sclater proposed that Madagascar and India were once part of a larger continent, and named this missing landmass ‘Lemuria’. Sclater’s theory was accepted by the scientific community of that period as the explanation of the way lemurs could have migrated from Madagascar to India or vice versa in ancient times. With the emergence of the modern concepts of continental drift and plate tectonics, however, Sclater’s proposition of a submerged continent was no longer tenable. Yet, the idea of a lost continent refused to die, and some still believe that Lemuria was an actual continent that existed in the past. 

    Russian occulist Blavatsky envisioned her Lemuria as covering a vast area. In her own words it stretched from

        ...the foot of the Himalayas, which separated it from the inland sea rolling its waves over what is now Tibet, Mongolia, and the great desert of Schamo (Gobi); from Chittagong, westward to Hardwar, and eastward to Assam.

    From thence, it stretched South across what is known to us as Southern India, Ceylon, and Sumatra; then embracing on its way, as we go South, Madagascar on its right hand and Australia and Tasmania on its left, it ran down to within a few degrees of the Antarctic Circle; when, from Australia, an inland region on the Mother Continent in those ages, it extended far into the Pacific Ocean...

    I will be posting some articles related to this for us to explore others ideas.

  • Sakwala Chakraya -Stargate of Sri Lanka
    Sakwala Chakraya -Stargate of Sri Lanka

    There seems to be a hypothasis that there might be a star gate in Sri Lanka.. This image is from a carving on one of the rock temples. 


    Following  info was copied from http://lakdiva.org/sakwala/sakwala.html

    Sakwala Chakraya

    Sakwala Chakraya
    (iii) Tisavewa Ruins.
    Upon the completion of the three groups of ruined buildings situated immediately east of Ruwanveli Dagaba excavations were transferred to a fresh locality, about a mile to the south-west of the Udamaluwa (Sacred Bo Tree enclosure), containing ruins of an entirely different character from any yet exploited.
    A ridge of granitic formation can easily be traced running on from the Vessagiri Rocks northwards, past Isuruminiya, below the bund of Tisavewa. Thence it crosses the Anuradhapura-Puttalam Road, and bisects the Mirisavetiya area and Basawakkulam tank; and trends ever north through the western portion ("Galge" and other rocks)+ of the Lankarama and Jetawanarama areas.
    The portion of the ridge just beyond the northern confines of Isurumuniya Rock Temple lies at the very foot of the embankment of the tank (Tisavewa), and is marked by a line of rocks of less magnitude than the Isurumuniya boulders.
    The rocks are mostly crowded together into two clusters (Y, Z), both resting upon the narrow ...leba.... ridge.
    The ..... ...... separate entity consist of caves, structural buildings, and three exceptionally fine pokunu formed of dressed stone, the whole belonging either to the Isurumuniya sangharamaya or to a sister monastery adjoining it. The ruins at this ancient site, though comparatively isolated did not escape considerable modification by later time additions, into which brick and mortar freely entered.
    Rocks Z.

    Behind the pansala, south-west, is the second line of boulders (Z), separated from the bathing-house and northern cluster of rocks (Y) by 10 yards of open space. These southerly boulders, four or five in all, are both more massive and taller than those of the other group. The most southerly exhibits rectangular grooves of some building which once crowned its summit; both faces of two boulders, overhanging west and east, were adapted as cave shelters.

    Site of Sakwala Chakraya The Site of the Sakwala Chakraya on the bund of Tisavewa in Anuradhapura, Lanka.

    Text on this page extracted from an original copy of Annual Report.

    The photographs were taken when I visited the site in 1991, and again in November 1995.

    The site is unmarked and unknown to most tourist guides. Maybe it should remain that way until properly protected.

    Page 9

    Cave No 2 lies beneath the west face of the penultimate rock forming its back and roof and floor. It was entered by a few steps leading down from the rock ridge.
    A worn, and hardly recognizable asanaya of bricks rests against the rock at back. To the left (north) of this seat, or alter, is cut shallowly on the steeply projecting rock face a great chakra, or circle 6 ft in diameter, scored by rectangular divisions containing figures (mostly small circles), the whole girt, as a tyred wheel, by a band on which is displayed variant piscine and crustacean life swimming round from right to left.
    The centre of the chakra is filled by a large circle comprising seven concentric rings, within a square 1 ft 2 in., to which cross lines are drawn vertically and horizontally from the encircling hand, cutting the chakra into quadrants. Further, parallel lines divide the circles vertically into ten strips, or slices, varying in width from 3 in. to 9 in., but matching to left and right of the central vertical line.
    All strips but the outer two are bisected by the horizontal base line and subdivided into dual or quadripartite partitions The outermost strips, unbisected, contain a single small circle, quadrisected by cross lines, and a figure of phallic suggestion. In each of the penultimate divisions right and left is a tiny circle in line with the horizontal bisection of the chakra, but nothing else. In the third pair are shown four more quadrisected circles, two and two, one in each of the upper and lower partitions left and right. The fourth strip to right contains four more such circles, bigger, and each in a separate partition. But that to left has compressed its circles into a quadripartite panel below the horizontal base line; leaving the upper panel free for four distinct diagrams - second seven.ringed circle (differing only in size from its larger counterpart in the centre of the chakra), beneath which are two umbrella~like emblems, and a pinnated three.forked figure -the whole interwined by a fret. Each of the eight divisions of the fifth strips, which meet as one broad band, above and below the concentric ringed circle on either side of the central vertical line of the chakra holds one of the small circles with cross lines ; the two left upper partitions containing also a square and a wavy diagonal line. Outside all these divisions is the 4 in tyre or band bounding the chakra.

    This weird circular diagram, incised on the bare rock -even more unique in a way than the elephant bas-reliefs of Pokuna A-may with every show of reason claim to be an old-time cosmographical chart illustrating in naivest simplicity the Buddhistic notions of the universe.
    The concentric circles with their interspaces at the centre of the chakra can assuredly mean only the Sakvala, in the centre of which rises Maha Meru, surrounded by the seven seas (Sidanta) and walls of rock (Yugandhara, &c.) which shut in that fabulous mountain, l,680,000 miles in height, half below, half above, the ocean's surface. Sun and moon (in the second strips) lie on either side of the Sakvala : round about in space are scattered innumerable other worlds represented by quadrisected circles.* Below and around is the "world of waters" (i.e., the circular band) in which swarm gigantic uncouth denizens-fish, turtle, crab, chank, and other marine fauna. !
    This ancient "map of the world"-perhaps the oldest in existence is of quite extraordinary interest. Its presence here, within an eremite's cave at an out-of-the way nook of ancient Anuradhapura, testifies to the antiquity of that astronomical lore still pursued in some of the Buddhist monasteries of Ceylon.

    No inscriptions occur at any of the caves; nor have any been discovered anywhere among these ruins.


    *Still used as an astrological emblem for the earth.
