A report from the district quoting a local historian and researcher, Dr
Harishchandra Prusty said the 29 by 29 metre monastery was unearthed on
Thursday last about eight feet underwater on the bed of the Govari rover
in Kantikiari village under Mahanga block of the district.

According to Dr Prusty, he and his team discovered the site after a local
villager, Damodar Rout informed him about its presence. The 18-room
monastery has side and partition walls made of bricks. The bricks used in
the monastery are rare and had not been found in other Buddhist sites in
the state like Lalitagiri, Udaigir and Khandagari, the historian has been
quoted as saying.

A number of other ancient articles have also been found from the site.
They included rock lamps and cooking pots. The discovery has once again
confirmed the spread of Buddhism in Orissa, Dr Prusty has said.

The fresh discovery may give a boost to the scholars and historian who
have been claiming that Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, was born
at Kapileswar near Bhubaneswar, the Orissa capital and not at Kapilavastu
in Nepal as claimed by history books.

During a national symposium on Buddhism in Orissa held here in November
last, a historian from neighbouring West Bengal, Dr Satyakam Sengupta and
his team had claimed it.

pyramids of japan

These are underwater photos of what are called the "pyramids of japan". I think they were just discovered in 1985. Some scientists think they are a natural formation, others think that the sharp angles to the structures would indicate that they are man made. They are just off one of the japanese islands called Yonaguni. I believe i got these basic facts correct. What is interesting about them is that if they are man made, it would completely throw off the timeline most scientists accept today for the dateing of civilization. I think some of the earliest structures, say in egypt, are said to be a few thousand years old. But if these stuctures underwater off japan are man made, they would have had to been made over 11,000 years ago. Their reasoning for that is that the only time this area was not underwater, and therefore could have been made by man, would have been during the last ice age which was 11,000 or more years ago. This would fit in with the vedic understanding that civilization is much older than modern science thinks. That is why i found the article interesting. But at the same time, i wonder if it does fit in with the vedic view for it depends on the existence of an ice age on the earth. Does anyone know if there is any concept of an "ice age" in the earth's history according to vedic scipture?

Prof. Masaaki Kimura, a marine geologist with the University of the Ryukyus in Okinawa has spent several years studying all eight sties, especially Yonaguni, which was found 13 years ago, in 1985. Kimura believes these are monuments made by man, left by an unknown civilization, perhaps from the Asian mainland, home of our oldest civilizations. He reasons that if the five layers on the Yonaguni site had been carved by nature, you would find debris from the erosion to have collected around the site, but no rock fragments have yet been found. He adds that there is what look like a road encircling the site as further indication it was used by man. He believes building this monument necessitated a high degree of technology, and some sort of machinery.

How to date these sites? A few possible scenarios have been suggested. The sites may have been submerged when sea levels rose at the end of the last Ice Age as the continental ice sheets melted. Or, as Japan sits on the Ring of Fire, tectonic activity might have caused subsidence of the land. Or perhaps a combination of subsidence and inundation from rising sea levels, or some catastrophic event, dropped it, intact and upright, into the ocean. Teruaki Ishii, a professor of geology at Tokyo University, believes the site is partly man-made, partly natural, and suggests a date of 8,000 B.C., contemporary to the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley. Others have suggested a date of 12,00 years.

Naga sadhus and the tunnel underwater

They are feared due to their matted hair and their unusual appearance. And their role in the spiritual world is always shrouded in mystery. The Naga baba (naked warrior mendicant) belongs to a sect that has no material bonding, lives a rigorous life and performs rituals to appease Lord Shiva -- the divine destroyer. They are mostly smeared with ash, carry traditional weapons like the trident, smoke cannabis or hashish and can perform incredible feats and yoga asanas. These sadhus every year flock from various parts of the country to the foot of the Girnar mountain at Junagadh district in Gujarat to celebrate Mahashivratri and take the much awaited dip at the famous Mrigi Kund (pond) at the Lord Shiva temple. Many perform yagnas (offerings) like the Mrityunjay Yagna, which is believed to have powers to bring back the dead. Legend has it that three sadhus out of many who take a dip at the Mrigi Kund vanish into the waters. Unfazed by the changing times, however, the Naga sadhus believe in the spiritual powers of the kund. According to a legend Lord Shiva himself had taken bath here and the water, which has sulphur, is a sign of his divine presence. Gopalgiri, a Naga sadhu from Himachal who has been visiting Junagadh for past 20 years, says the mystery surrounding the kund is one of the most known ones. "Legend also has it that there is a secret tunnel under water from where they go to another place," Gopalgiri said. "No ordinary man can try to unearth this secret route by trying to take a dip. Only a true sadhu can detect it and go past it if his calling has arrived," he added with caution. Unperturbed by changing times the Naga sadhus maintain that it is due to their extreme penance under harsh conditions that they are able to ward off many evils in the world. Nagas like Acharya Lalchadi Giri from Uttaranchal say they are drawn to the Mahashivratri celebrations by the mystical power of Lord
Shiva. I personally had the good fortune of meeting genuine naga sadhus when I was i Kashi.Many naga sadhus are fraudsters.

Blue Lotus

Nymphaea Caerulea (Blue Lotus) was held in very high esteem by the ancient Egyptians. Nymphaea Caerulea (Blue Lotus) was worshipped as a visionary plant and was a symbol for the origins of life. The Egyptians believed that the world was originally covered by water and darkness. A Blue Lotus sprang up from the water and opened its petals to reveal a young god, a Divine Child. Light streamed from the Divine Child to banish universal darkness. This child god was the Creator, the Sun God, the source of all life. When the Pharao known as King Tut was entombed, his body was covered in Nymphaea Caerulea (Blue Lotus) flowers. Nymphaea Caerulea (Blue Lotus) is also highly respected and by Indians and in Buddhism. When Nymphaea Caerulea (Blue Lotus) was smoked or drank after being soaked in water or wine, it acted as an intoxicant.

In India goddess Tara hold a beautiful blue lotus which symbolize extreme spiritual knowledge. Blue wheel, Blue lotus, all symbolize great knowledge. American super computer is also called Deep Blue.
