progenitors, the 'Pitaram' orbit the Moon
The Sanskrit word Pitaram means our ancient progenitors -
that I understand as the 'forefather' colonizing beings, who came to
this planet and took part in the creation and hybridization of the
human races - are described by the Seer Rishi Dîrgatamas, who
composed the following verse in the Rig Veda I.164.18.
The Pitaram are said to inhabit the
Bhuvas region of the air and orbit the Moon.
The progenitors were far more advanced
than we are today both in technology and metaphysical

frequencies, plasma physics, cosmic rays, magnetic fields, etc.

The colonizers of our planet Earth did
not use combustion engines to traverse space or even atomic energy.
Their technologies were far more
advanced that anything we have yet to imagine and include the
warping of time. For example plasma is the most abundant form of
matter in the Universe, thus there can be no plasma cartel.
Using sound frequencies, our progenitors
directed the Solar wind's plasma and other sources of plasma
that continually flow through space, including gamma ray bursts and
the explosion of stars. Plasma has infinite conductivity and was
concentrated to their use.
The Polar Regions, such as the Arctic Circle, receive the greatest
intensity of solar plasma energy.
Planet Earth's dipole magnetic field
acts as a natural concentrating conductor. In confluence with planet
Earth's dipole magnetic field, the concentrated plasma was funneled
through the Polar Regions, through the earth's core, and into the
pyramids located around the planet.
In that era,
pyramids served as collectors and
transducers, to create the torus and concentrate the resulting
energies from plasma into an intense coherent path. [reference

Sound has a wide spectrum of effects
on all forms, subtle and solid, everything including water, our
emotions and feelings. The Rishis who composed the Rig Veda hymns
knew this and sought to duplicate the technology of their

Moon referred to in this verse came as a complete shock to me.
Let me assure the reader that I do not approach these sacred mantras
with the intent that I am going to find evidence for the
colonization of planet Earth.
In fact, my discovery of rocket fuel [in
verse III.44.5] led me to put away my research and renderings for a
Some will say that an off-planet bias is
my ingrained filter because of my having seen over 30 UFOs and the
visions that formed the book, Inanna Returns. Yes I agree that my
experiences have shaped my perspective.
This is the same for everyone. I make no
apology, but I want to emphasize as I have in the past, that in
connecting the Rig Veda with the off-world colonization of our
blue-green planet, I intend no lack of respect.
Surely my continued reverent study shows
that I sincerely honor the Rishis and their sacred praise-hymn
B.G. Tilak: 'The
Arctic Home in the Vedas'
When I first approached 'The
Arctic Home in the Vedas' by the great Indian scholar and
freedom fighter Lokmanya Bâl Gangâdhar Tilak, I simply did
not have enough background understanding to properly absorb his
comprehensive controversial research.
A wider reading on the Rig Veda from
multiple sources has made Tilak's subtle detailed intricacies of
citing numerous individual verses more accessible to me. And I must
say a veritable gold mine of illumination.
For example contrary to some later views, Tilak says that the Rig
Veda is not arranged in chronological order, therefore the hymns
that are in the tenth Mantra may in fact predate the first.
Time appears to be almost irrelevant to
the ancients and to the frustration of western scholars the Sanskrit
texts usually disregard exact dates.
"…the Rig Veda, or we might even say
the whole Vedic literature, is not arranged into different
strata [he uses a geological term] according to their
chronological order, so that we can go from one stratum to
another and examine each separately.
The Rig Veda is a book in which old
things of different periods are so mixed up that we have to work
long and patiently before we are able to separate and classify
its contents in chronological order."
Before the Ice
Another revelation from Tilak is a very subtle understanding that
could only emerge from a scholar who had read the verses many times
with an open mind.
Tilak says that the Rishi's are
describing events that occurred in their remote past, as he says:
"…exploits are described in the Rig
Veda as pűrvyâni or prathamâni, that is old or ancient.
In short the ancient hymns, poets,
or deities, mentioned in the Rig Veda must have referred to a
by-gone age and not to post-Glacial times… the subject matter
was old [when the Rishis composed their hymns], that is,
traditionally handed down to the poet from remote ages."
Thus according to Tilak there is,
"a distinct contrast between the
births of gods on the one hand and the poet [seer Rishi] who may
see the hymn in the later age… meaning that the subject matter
of the hymn is an occurrence of the former age (yuga)."
Again to clarify, Tilak has said,
"…the deities whose exploits were
sung in the hymns were considered to be ancient deities.
Nay, we have express passages where
not only the deities but their exploits are said to be ancient,
evidently meaning that the achievements spoken of in the hymns
were traditional and not witnessed by the poet himself…"
The implication of this is that the
Rishis carried in memory their already ancient primordial traditions
and invoked them by composing the Rig Veda hymns.
The hymns were spoken, not written down,
and held in memory for thousands of years.
The Rishis placed themselves in higher
states of consciousness, perhaps accessing the siddhi [sravana
darshanam in Sanskrit] known in English as 'remote
viewing' - and because their consciousness was so highly
elevated, their superb hymns formed in rhyme, thus the various
meters such as the Gâyatrî, Trishtup, and Jagatî the Rig Veda is
The Rishis were enlightened and through self-mastery entered into
the ultimate Source, becoming 'That' as the God-within their
Heart [anahata] pervaded their consciousness.
Yaska, the 6th
century BCE grammarian, classifies the Rig Veda mantras in three
The deity is addressed
indirectly in the third person
The deity is directly addressed
as if the seer is speaking to the deity right in front of
The third reflects the highest
state of God-consciousness, in which the Rishi seer,
"may identify himself with
the god who comes for praise, and speak about the god in
the first person as if he is the god himself. The god is
projected on oneself, or the seer lords over himself and
becomes the god for the time being"
[S.K. Ramachandra Rao]
This is exactly what
Bhagavad Gita XII.7
expresses in the Sanskrit mayyâveshitacetasâm - which is the
understanding that those whose consciousness has entered into the
One, our eternal Being and Source, will be delivered from the
confines of Time and Space as samsara, the
Tilak's Arctic Home
Even though B.G. Tilak was a freedom fighter and instrumental
in liberating India from British rule, sadly his extensive and
detailed scholarly research on the Arctic in the Veda was cast aside
by Indian politics.
After the British left, India naturally
became more nationalistic; and from what I have understood reading
diverse articles, Tilak's idea that the poet-seer composers of the
Rig Veda came from the Arctic Circle - and therefore not from India
- understandably did not fit into the requirements of India's new
Therefore I was pleased to find that R.L. Kashyap, who
translated the entire Rig Veda and
Yajur Veda, had some supporting
kind words to say about Tilak's labours.
Kashyap's translations reflect the
esoteric theories of the mystic genius Sri Aurobindo and his
brilliant disciple T.V. Kapâli Sâstry.
In 'Unveiling the Light in the Veda'
Kashyap states that their interpretation of the Rig Veda is
"based on the inner meaning of the
Kashyap says that there are multiple
meanings. He does not believe that the outer meanings are the only
However an outer interpretation,
"could be helpful for drawing
conclusions on the environment, age and other conditions of the
ancient society of the Rishis or to unearth history and record.
Similarly it may be possible to fix
upon, following Mr. Tilak, the Arctic Home of Vedic Rishis…"
R.L. Kashyap is Professor Emeritus of
Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University in Indiana.
His impressive work on the Vedas is
extensive, helpful and very informative. The fact that Kashyap was
unwilling to brush aside Tilak's monumental research impressed me,
because if you read Tilak with the necessary due diligence, you will
be convinced as many in India were before politics submerged his
In fact, Tilak's research was initially
In the Publisher's Note in the introduction to Tilak's 'The Arctic
Home in the Vedas', John B. Morgan says that archaeology is subject
"to the whims of fashion" like other fields of human knowledge.
Tilak's theory had an enormous impact
for a time, but,
"it has become associated with the
Aryan Invasion Theory, which now carries political baggage as a
result of the National Socialists and others in ways unintended
by its formulators.
In India itself, the idea also no
longer holds currency with many Indian authorities, who view the
Arctic theory as a conception cooked up by the colonial British
to try to show that Indian civilization was merely the product
of an earlier colonization carried out by similar conquerors
from the North."
I am aware that my ideas of off-planet
colonization may not be well received as politically correct by
nationalistic Indian politics.
The publisher goes on to suggest that,
"once all of the political
accretions which currently obscure its surface have faded",
...Tilak's research may once again
receive serious attention, which I believe it deserves.
produced the 'Born'
Related to the emphasis on meter and sound in the Rig Veda hymns is
the portion of my intuitive-translation of the above verse I.164.18:
[those] who gifted with the Insight
of regulated tones of utterance,
[transformed] Mind thought-idea [as √vac] Sound-Light,
whence, out of which produced the born, here in this world.
Theories of sound are one of the most
aspects of the Sanskrit texts.
There are numerous volumes of study
dedicated to understanding sound and it's pervasive influence on
consciousness. The Taittirîya Upanishad contains the Vedic rules on
sound modulation, the proper pronunciation of word and laws of
The Mimamsaka ritualists such as Sayana
revered traditions of pronunciation to the point of exclusion of
meaning. They understood that the sound vibrations produced during a
Unfortunately, the layered meanings were
lost by then, and ritual repetition of sound was all they valued.
Because of this, some scholars are
bewildered that Sayana would have chosen to write about the Rig Veda
The French Sanskrit scholar, André Padoux wrote on the theory
of sound in 'Vâc
- The Concept of the Word
in Selected Hindu Tantras'.
In Chapter 3, Padoux explains the
manifestation of sound:
"The activity of divine
consciousness which brings the universe into existence, and
which…is pure light, Prakâsha, is often described… as a flashing
forth, a radiance, a luminous vibration…
Manifestation, as it is born out of
the Word and along with it, may be understood as a flashing
forth (sphurattâ), which gradually becomes obfuscated… through a
series of transformations and condensations of sound or phonic
primal energy, which gradually brings forth (but in a never
ending process, for it takes place beyond time) the manifested
The Kashmir Shaivite genius saint
Abhinavagupta explains sound as 'Parâ Vâk' in his text
"The Highest Lord ever brings about
[manifestation, maintenance, absorption, veiling, and revealing
He is in fact the very Grace itself,
being always equipped with His Supreme Divine Energy (Shakti)…
[which] expresses in Parâ Vâk…
She (the Supreme Vâk) is, in the
most initial stage, stationed in the Divine I-consciousness
which is the highest mantra and which is not limited by space or
time… by means of coagulation the subtle energies of
consciousness assume the solid form of matter, but even in that
thickened mass of matter, consciousness does not lose its
nature, even as water in becoming ice does not lose its nature."
Alain Danielou in his 'Music & the Power of Sound'
quotes the Kashmir Shaivite Ksemarâja to elucidate metaphysical
correspondences with sound:
"The bindu [the undifferentiated
point of spiritual power containing the universe], wanting to
manifest the thought It has of all things, vibrates, and is
transformed into primordial sound with the nature of a cry (nâda).
It shouts out the universe, which is
not distinct from Itself; that is to say, It thinks it - hence
the word shabda…the supreme 'word' which sounds, vibrates,
submitting all things to the fragmentation of life…"
"The universe is called in Sanskrit
'jagat' (that which moves) because nothing exists but by the
combination of forces and movements. But every movement
generates a vibration and therefore a sound that is peculiar to
Since each element of matter
produces a sound, the relation of elements can be expressed by a
relation of sounds."
embedded within the Sanskrit letters
In the myriad realms of manifestation, beyond the stillness of
origin, everything is motion.
Therefore the Sanskrit letters
themselves may be perceived as various types of motion. In his
Comparative Etymological Dictionary, Franco Rendich has
interpreted the root meanings of Sanskrit letters as various forms
the consonant 'k' is said
to be "cosmic, curvilinear and enveloping motion."
The letter 'g'
represents "winding motion, in various directions" and 'c' is said
to be "circular motion" - thus we understand that the root meanings
of Sanskrit words are made up of coagulated sounds holding power as
motion, Shakti, creative action.
I have quoted directly from the M. Monier-Williams
Sanskrit to English Dictionary
[Vol. 1, page 911-12] this definition of the 'Pitaram'
the progenitors of mankind that are
said to inhabit the Bhuvas region of the air and orbit the Moon
as regents of the Naksatras Maghâ (29˚Sagittarius to
9˚Capricorn) and Műla (29˚Leo - 9˚Virgo) in the heavens above
I do want to emphasize that I have not
made this up, imagined or presupposed it. The verse is speaking of
the Pitaram, our progenitors.
Progenitor is defined in the
Oxford Dictionary as,
'a person from whom another person,
family, or race is descended; an ancestor.'
So these 'Pitaram' are our progenitors,
our ancestors, from whom we are descended. They are said to inhabit
a specific region of the air and orbit the Moon as regents of
The 28 Naksatras are the astronomical
and astrological demarcations of the constellations as sectors,
which the Moon passes through. Maghâ and Műla are two, therefore we
are told the precise location of origin in the heavens from whence
these regents, our progenitors, came.
What's up on
This reference in the Rig Veda to off-planet beings orbiting
Moon reminds me of
Ingo Swann, the original remote
viewer who worked with the Stanford Research Institute, SRI, and
many government agencies for years.
In his book 'Penetration
The Question of Extraterrestrial and Human Telepathy'
Swann tells of his involvement with a very secret government agency
that asked him to remote view the dark side of the Earth's Moon.
He saw extensive buildings, roads, and
human forms digging. Swann makes it very clear that our government
is very much intimidated by these ETs.
He says to the government agent:
"They've somehow got you by the
balls, haven't they? That's why you are resorting to psychic
perceptions…They are NOT friendly are they?"
Why our progenitor ancestors are
no longer friendly?
Have centuries of devastating
human conflicts and the more recent poisoning of our own
planet engendered a loss of faith in the worth of their
Or are they just 'not friendly'
to our military?
The Puranas were written in the middle ages, therefore much later
than the Rig Veda or the Upanishads, or the Mahabharata; and many
scholars like R.L. Kashyap doubt their credibility.
However, they do contain descriptions of
myriad other worlds,
Lokas as worlds
we might call
or other-dimensional in the
sense that they are not within the same vibrational frequencies as
we earthlings experience. Perhaps the entities in these realms do
not share a similar physical density.
All these worlds appear to be lit from
within, meaning they do not have reflected light as we do here.
Vayu Purana, Part I, Chapter 53 -
Arrangement of Luminaries:
73. There are crores [one crore =
10,000,000] of constellations and as many stars too.
75. The stars occupy their own
abodes. These luminaries are the abodes of pious persons.
76. The abodes are created by the
Self-born Deity at the beginning of the Kalpa. They stay up to
the dissolution of all living beings.
77. These are the abodes of the
deities in all Manvantaras. These deities identify themselves
with these abodes and stay till the final dissolution.
78. The abodes of those who have
gone have vanished.
79. In this
Manvantara, the planets
reside in aerial cars.
(This is a particularly intriguing
verse because it suggests the idea of planets as space ships or
a giant space station-mother ship that might not require an
83. Svarbhanu… being a demon,
harasses all living creatures. [There are myriad demon worlds as
well, perhaps Reptilian or Borg-like.]
Part I, Ch. 1, Verse
The stars in the form of constellations
are mentioned along with the planets wherein are situated the
residences of the gods who have performed meritorious acts.
These Loka worlds are all realms contained within this universe -
the Cosmic Golden Egg known as Hiranya-garbha.
The Puranas say that there are seven
higher worlds and seven lower, but within these divisions are
contained thousands of cities of the,
...and a multitude of other beings in a
variety of possible existences.
These worlds all seem to have their own code of life that they
adhere to, their own dharma, and the gods in the Puranas are often
fond of the demons and have respect for them - when they are not at
war with them, which happens repeatedly.
Thus the primeval idea of 'War
in the Heavens' is a frequent subject in the Sanskrit
texts. These wars are often reflected here on planet Earth. Even in
the Mahabharata, the gods are said
to be looking on during battles and showering brave warriors with
The Puranas also say that there are thousands of crores (literally
millions) of these Cosmic Eggs universes!
Our own astronomers have recently said
that there are at least 100 million planets capable of evolving
"…calculations are consistent with
the widely-held assumption that the majority of exoplanets have
a lower probability of hosting complex life than Europa, even a
very low percentage of an extremely large number is high, and it
is now recognized that the number of exoplanets is vast.
If we assume the existence of 10–100
billion exoplanets in the Milky Way Galaxy, with 1% of them
capable of evolving ecosystems as complex as those that might
have existed at some point on Europa, that computes to the
possibility of at least 100 million planets that may have seen
the evolution of some biological complexity in our galaxy.
Thus, this report constitutes the
first quantitative argument that complex forms of life, while
rare in frequency, are likely to be large in absolute number in
our galaxy alone, and therefore throughout the universe."
Assessing the Possibility of Biological Complexity on Other
Worlds, with an Estimate of the Occurrence of Complex Life in
the Milky Way Galaxy
There are 500 billion galaxies. Our
Milky Way galaxy alone is home to at least 100 billion alien
planets, and possibly many more.
It is unbelievably absurd to continue
this delusion that we are alone in the universe!
Universes Float Like Bubbles in an Ocean…
Maya, the divine power of the Lord,
reflected by him externally appears… The Lord, covering Himself
with it, conceals his nature of absolute purity and divinity.
…He sees everything through a viewpoint of diversity and forgets
the divinity of His I-consciousness. Besides, Maya-tattva serves
as the inanimate objective substance out of which all other
insentient elements evolve.
It is thus the substantive cause of
numerous universes floating in it like bubbles in an ocean.
