Who were the Mayans…? The mysterious civilization widely studied and talked about world over, with its remains found in Central American Mexico.
Recent studies suggest a link between Indus Valley and the Mayans, focusing on the calendars of the two advanced civilizations. The Indus inhabitants followed a calendar based on the movements of Jupiter, while Mayans followed Venus. In the Puranas, Jupiter, Brihaspati, was acknowledged to be the leader of the gods, while Venus, Shukra, was of the asuras. The texts further state that the devtas and asuras lived on opposite sides of the Earth. Mexico and India are indeed on opposite sides in longitude. Here the words devta and asur do not mean good and bad, they simply refer to two different communities with different lifestyles, as energy patterns in different parts of the world are different.
It has been confirmed that the principles and guidelines on which the Mayan structures are made is the same as prescribed in the Vastu Shastras of India. Remains of the residential layouts of the Mayan structures are identical to those found in the Indus Valley civilization. As in Mayan buildings, the Hindus have been using lime mortar for all of their stone and brick buildings. This can be seen in the monumental creations in Mahabalipuram and the famed stone temples of Thanjavur in Tamil Nadu. The outer surfaces of temples in both civilizations were plastered, embellished in lime mortar and then painted.
The step pyramid design of the Mayan Temple is strikingly similar to the Hindu-Javanese Sukuh-Temple or the Prasat Thom Pyramid in Angkor Cambodia, home to world’s largest Hindu temple complex.
The vedic origin is further enhanced by the frequency at which elephant motif is found in Mayan art, especially the earlier works of the Mayans, such as at Copan in Honduras, even though the elephant never existed in that region.
The board game known as Patolli was widely played by Mayans is Mesoamerica, including the Toltecs and Aztecs. It resembles the game of Pachisi, which has been popular in India from vedic times until today. Similarities include the board’s cruciform shape, the sequence of moves, and the cosmic associations of the pieces and moves.
Indian history talks of a mighty asur named Maya Danav who finds extensive mention in Ramayan, Mahabharata and the Puranas. Maya, son of Diti, the mother of all Daityas, is described as a great architect and father of Mandodari who became the queen of Ravana. He is also said to have built the Mayasabha for the Pandavas. Maya is often credited for giving the world Surya Siddhanta, which is the knowledge that Sun god gave to this asur.Mayasura is also the author of Mayamata Vastu Shastra.
So was it Mayasura who migrated from the Indian subcontinent towards Americas, whose generations we know as the Mayans?
