THE HEART OF THE
Draupadi, or Isis, the wife of the five Pandava sons, certainly had
her share of grief with her family's struggles to retain their
As the women were often the focal points
of these dire circumstances, one must credit her and her mother.
Sadly, she would eventually die at the hands of the oppressors, but
there was a blending of the incident of her death and a separate
abduction from On from both the Veda and Sumerian scriptures. Both
list the maid who gives the sad news to her brothers that she has
been abducted but this story is separate from the Sumerian account
which has her supposedly die in the end.
The "hermitage Trnabindu"1 was to all
appearances, Deir el Bahari, as it stands today in Egypt, built long
before Hatsheput's or Tiy's time.
The latter two's lineages, if we are to
use any sound psychobiology at all. were not capable of constructing
so fine an architectural achievement if they were so busy trying to
steal the "Tablets" all the time.
According to the Veda, it was lightly
wooded, unlike its desert desolation of today. However, after On's
fall, the foliage had died and Hatsheput's first act was to bring
trees from Jerusalem to restore it as it once was according to an
According to the Veda chapter, THE ABDUCTION OF DRAUPADI, the "first
of the Bharatos," enjoyed hunting in the forests.
At one time they left Draupadi in the
hermitage with "consent of the great seer of blazing austerities"
and a priest, Dhaumya. Somehow it seems odd they would all leave her
for hunting. The reason I state so, is that later in the story, she
is told by her adductors that her husband's "fortunes are down, and
they have lost their kingdom and their wits."
If this was just a 'hunting' trip it can
be assured it was two-legged animals they sought! Other stories of
this crucial time state they may have been purposely distracted.
Just the same, King of the Sindhus, son of Viddhakasatra, "being in
a martyring mood" ventured from the land of the Salvas with a large
Seeing Draupadi and her "radiating
superb beauty," he queried,
"Is she on Apsara, or the daughter
of a God, or an illusion created by the Gods?"
And saying to one of his men,
"Whose is this woman of flawless
limbs, if she is human at all? There is no point for me to many
now that I have seen this superbly beautiful today! It is she I
shall take and return to my kingdom! Go and find out, my friend,
whose she is, who she is, and from where.
Why has this woman of the lovely
brow come to the thorny forest? Will this gem of the world with
the comely curves, the perfect teeth, the long-eyes, the slender
waist, shore my love today? Shall my desires be fulfilled by my
obtaining this choicest of women? Go and find out who her
protector is Kotika!"
If you noted, there is a reference to
his knowing those being Gods, and those not, and those who were
This story bears a very close connection
to the rape of Dinah in the Bible, who is the only daughter of Jacob
who has twelve sons,: Joseph the last:
Now Dinah, the daughter Leoh had borne to Jacob, went out to visit
the women of the land. When Shechem son of Hamor the Hivite, the
ruler of that area, saw her, he took her and violated her. His heart
was drawn to Dinoh daughter of Jacob and he loved the girl and spoke
tenderly to her.
And Shechem said to his father Hamor,
"Get me this girl as my wife."
Once again we see the suspicious
blending of the same facts with the wrong names.
Jacob is Siva who, unlike his father, gave birth to many more sons
much to the worlds chagrin. By doing this, whoever wrote the Bible
tried to mix the good people with the miscreants, giving the latters
deeds a rosier color.
I doubt the immediate family of Indra
would have raped Draupadi for they knew the consequences but others
might have met their fates nonetheless as the Bible relates. Was it
very sporting for people of the 'lord' of the Bible, to have the
evildoers circumcised (they were anyway if they were sons of Siva)
and while they are in pain and incapacitated, three days later, they
kill every male in the city and looted it?
According to Sumer, the Gods, as we saw,
killed Set, being mercifully and speedily done by severing the
carotid artery and jugular veins. The story in the Bible seems cruel
and quite fictionalized. If one only realizes how many people
through history have received ill treatment because of careless
influences as this because it is "holy", makes one rather ill. What
further gives the story away is that when the envoy of this King
questions Draupadi, the "twelve Sauviraka princes" wait for the
The Bible has literally taken the twelve
sons of Siva, borrowed the daughter of the Ennead and her five
brothers and made it appear someone else did the rape!
Draupadi received the guests according to the "Laws of Etiquette".
It was then that the King remonstrated her husbands.
"Don't speak like that" she cried,
"Shame on you" and tells of the virtues of her husbands.
"We too have all been born, my Krsna,
in the seventeen high dynasties: we are surely not lacking in
those six virtues we think the Pandus lack, Draupadi. " said the
She then snapped back,
"For both the Krsnas will follow my
trail, the war companions, riding one chariot: Not Indra would
manage to carry me off, then how would a mere and miserable
mortal? When the diademed slayer of enemy heroes, who shatters
the hearts of his foes on his chariot, on my account invades
your army, he'll rage like a summer fire in dead-wood!"
But despite her faith in her husbands
she was no match for their bestiality:
With wide open eyes she watched
Attempting lo seize her, upbraiding them;
And in fear, she cried out, "Don '1 touch, don V touch me!"
And she screamed for the help of Dhaumya the priest.
Jayadratha held her by her skirt,
Bui with all her strength she pushed him away;
And, his body repulsed by her, that miscreant
Fell down like a tree whose roots have been cut.
But, once more seized with great vehemence,
The princess began to pant heavily.
She was dragged along up on to the chariot
And Krsna saluted Dhaumya's feet.
Giving credence to my statement that is
was doubtful they would have raped her is the following statement by
one of the cohorts of the king who said,
"you cannot abduct her without
having vanquished the warriors! Look to the ancient Law of the
baronage, Jaydratha! By committing this meanness you shall reap
evil undoubtly, when you encounter the Pandava heroes led by the
Meanwhile, Yudhisthira has a premonition
from Draupadi and says,
"Let's return at once and be done
with the deer, for my mind is consumed by a blazing fire; in my
body the lord of my life is afire and covers my spirit with its
Riding on "chariots high" they returned
to the hermitage.
They took a sign from nature:
As they were returning a jackal
On their left, and it sounded a piercing howl,
perceiving it uttered a cry
And spoke to Bhima and Dhanamjaya.
"The way this low-born animal speaks,
This jackal appearing here
on our left,
It is fully clear that the wicked Kurus
contemptuously mounted a brutal attack"
This is not as ridiculous as it sounds.
People of nature, (you know, the
'primitives' you read about in your school texts?) often can read
the languages of the animals who are just as aware of events as we.
At the hermitage they found the "foster-sister", and maid of Draupadi, weeping:
"Why are you crying prostrate on
Why is your face so pale and dry?
Have not perchance
Molested the Princess Draupadi
Of the flawless
limbs and the wide-open eyes.
Whose body matches the bulls of
"Even if the queen has entered the earth

"For who in

He knows not she has protectors now?
She's the walking heart of the Pandavas!
Did you notice the reference to the Tuat,
the cites under the sea and the heavens where she could have been
That they were worried that she would be molested was not
doubted, as the maid stammers,

They came upon the abductors and sallied
forth with Nibiruian strength as the evildoers took her away in the
The King panicked and said to Draupadi,
"They're coming now, five huge
warriors. I am sure they must be your husbands, Krsno. You know
them, my fair one, enlighten us, who is which of the Pandavas
This is an excellent play on words here
for he asked what they knew so well, that Osiris was the only son
borne in the heavens, "chariot-born".
"Would if help you to know those
archers, fiend after doing your ugly and deadly deed? For here
have my champion husbands come and none of you will be spared in
The following is very revealing, from a
forensic viewpoint, as Draupadi describes all her brother's starting
That one who is pure and fair like gold,
With aquiline nose, lean,
wide of eyes,
They call him the foremost chief of Kurus,
Dharma's son, and my husband!
To even a foe who had come for shelter

Fool, run to him fast, run for
your own good,
For your awn, down your weapons and fold your hands!
As at the Fall, their skin would now start to change for in other
parts of the Veda her husbands are olive skinned and later black and
complain of the change.
This is interesting for obviously the
reasons the husbands were away was the fact something had happened
to the disc and the environment quickly changed. Their skins would
have quickly altered.
The 'aquiline nose' was not a Nibiruian
trait, but there is no reason the hyaline cartilage could not be
changed by the environment. Draupadi then continues her praise:
Do you see now that other one on his
Strong-armed, like a full-grown sola tree?

The battle then commenced as they set "a
darkness of reeds on the chariot army."
They attacked their elephants and,
"the elephant warriors on his
chariot and toppled them with iron spikes like peacocks from
Yudhisthira, killed "in o twinkling of
the eye" a hundred Sauvira chieftains.
Yudhisthira, shot an
infantryman in the chest with an arrow and saved Naskula who was
being assailed with arrows on two sides by killing all the archers
with one large arrow each. Nakula was attacked by an elephant urged
on by the mahouts and he "hacked off its trunk and tusks at the
Thereupon the elephant, fell on the
mahouts. Bhima decapitated a driver of a chariot who was attempting
to run him over and then impaled him in his chariot with his
javelin. According to the text, the twelve princes all were
If this is true, it might have prompted
Siva to his later bloodlusts and why his brother's and Lilith's
offspring took over Egypt.
"And headless trunks and trunkless
heads lay covering the ground all over the battlefield. Dogs,
vultures, heron, crows, ravens, kites, jackals, and birds
feasted on the flesh and blood of the fallen heroes."
The King then let Draupadi go and she
was taken up in Kharma's chariot.
The King and his troops then turned and
ran with Bhima pursuing, but Dharma (Yudhisthira) stopped any
further killing. Here there was a small confrontation between them
as the King did not want any more killing either and had allowed
themselves to be captured but then fled.
Yudhisthira then said to Bhima,
"Tlte Sandhava does not deserve to
die, strong-armed Bhima, evil though he is, as long as we care
for Dubsaia and the glorious Gandhari."
But Draupadi urged her brother, most
upset that the foes had fled,
"If you want lo do me a kindness,
kill off that wretched abortion of the Sandhavas (she hit that
one on the head! - A.N.) the evil, ill-minded defiler of his voce!
A wife-snotcher without a cause and a foe who steals a kingdom
do not deserve to live, even if they beg you in battle!"
Yudhisthira then changed his mind and
the other brothers took off in pursuit. He then returned to find the
hermitage in complete disorder as the staff had left and others had
ransacked the area, while their people welcomed them heartily.
Bhima and Arjuna were not going to waste anymore time chasing the
King and employed their "celestial weapons" and shot down the horses
"from the distance of a cry."
The "enchanted arrows" hit their mark
and they attacked and the King fled from his dead 'horse'. Bhima
rushed at him but one of the brothers reminded him not to kill him
but Bhima would not listen and he grabbed him by the hair, lifted
him up in the air and dashed him to the ground, then grabbed him by
the throat and "thrashed him".
When the King came to, he whined and
Bhima kicked him in the head, kneed him and let his fist find his
face, knocking him unconscious.
Again, one of the brothers reminded him
not to kill him and Bhima retorted,
"This evil man, this despicable
molester of the innocent Draupadi, does not deceive his life
from me! How can I do what our always compassionate king says?
You too always bother me with your child's brain!"
He then shaved part of the King's head
with a "crescent arrow" till there were five tufts of hair left.
He then said to the King,
"Listen to what 1 am going to say if
you want to survive, fool! You shall say at assemblies and
courts that you are our slave, then I will spare your life. This
is your victor's command!."
The King agreed and Bhima tied him up
and threw him in the chariot to take him to Yudhisthira. He said
"Tell Draupadi that the evil-minded
wretch has become the slave of the Pandus."
Draupadi had regained her composure from
a while back and told him to let the King go, which was done. He
then went up to Yudhisthira and saluted him and bowed to all his
It was a great mistake to let him go but
there may have been other circumstances here as Yudhisthira said,
"Go a free man! You ore free, but do
not ever do it again. A curse on you, lecher, you are vile, and
your companions ore vile. What lowest of men but you would act
like that? Your spirit shall increase in Law, do not set your
mind on lawlessness! Go in peace, Jayadrotha, with your horses,
chariots, and footmen."
Perhaps Yudhisthira thought it the
better part of valor to keep the peace that was quickly eroding.
But, as would be expected, the fox returned to his lair, proud in
the fact he had lied to his brethren, for the Law was beyond his
scope, and the stage was being further set.
Before Siva, the,
"Three-Eyed God, Consort of Uma...
the Bull-bannered God", the king said. "May I vanquish all of
the Pandavas on their chariots to which the "God' said, "Nay!
But, invincible and unslayable though they be, you will be able
to stay them in battle, except the strong-armed Arjuna whom even
the Gods find it hard to assail. For he, the first of the
blowers of arms, is protected by the Krsna of the conch, discus,
and mace, whom they call the Unvanquished God."
Even back then the white gods spoke with
