1. Mahabharata Adam, Eve, and Noah Similarities
1.) The following account, taken from the Hindu Matsya Purana (Fish Chronicle),
describes some of the people who, after a severe flood, left India for
other parts of the world:
To Satyavarman, that sovereign of the whole earth, were born three sons:
the eldest Shem; then Sham; and thirdly, Jyapeti by name.
Compare with the Biblical: Noah (Manu-Satyavaman) Shem, Ham, and Japhet.
The Mahabharata states:
"The progeny of Adamis and Hevas (Adam and Eve ?) soon became so
wicked that they were no longer able to coexist peacefully.
Not only are the names of the main players in the Noah story the same
as the family of Satyavarman, but, like the Vaivasvata part that the Old
Testament authors plagiarized from the Mahabharata, the rains fell for
forty days and forty nights.
According to the Vaivasvata story, Shem's name is Manu; Ham or Sham is
Nabhanedistha; Japhet is Yayati or Dyaus-Pitar (Jupiter or the Hebrew
The third "Noah" was a deity named Dyaus-Nahusha. We Westerners
call him Dionysius or Bacchus. Bacchus derives from the Sanskrit Bagha,
meaning "God the Androgynous." When a great flood destroyed
the world, Nahusha left India in order to restore civilization to mankind.
2. Abraham as Brahma
In Hindu mythology, Sarai-Svati is Brahma's sister. The bible gives two
stories of Abraham. In this first version, Abraham told Pharaoh that he
was lying when he introduced Sarai as his sister. In the second version,
he also told the king of Gerar that Sarai was really his sister. However,
when the king scolded him for lying, Abraham said that Sarai was in reality
both his wife and his sister! "...and yet indeed she is my sister;
she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and
she became my wife." (Genesis 20:12.)
A tributary of the river Saraisvati is Ghaggar. Another tributary of
the same river is Hakra. According to Jewish traditions, Hagar was Sarai's
maidservant; Notice the similarities of Ghaggar, Hakra and Hagar.
The bible also states that Ishmael, son of Hagar, and his descendants
lived in India. "...Ishmael breathed his last and died, and was gathered
to his kin... They dwelt from Havilah (India), by Shur, which is close
to Egypt, all the way to Asshur." (Genesis 25:17-18.) It is an interesting
fact that the names of Isaac and Ishmael are derive from Sanskrit: (Hebrew)
Ishaak = (Sanskrit) Ishakhu = "Friend of Shiva." (Hebrew) Ishmael
= (Sanskrit) Ish-Mahal = "Great Shiva."
"The Arabian historians contend that Brahma and Abraham, their ancestor,
are the same person. The Persians generally called Abraham Ibrahim Zeradust.
Cyrus considered the religion of the Jews the same as his own. The Hindoos
must have come from Abraham, or the Israelites from Brahma..." (Anacalypsis;
Vol. I, p. 396.)
Vedic Past of Pre-Islamic Arabia; Part VI; p.2.:
"One of the shrines in the Kaaba was also dedicated to the Hindu
Creator God, Brahma, which is why the illiterate prophet of Islam claimed
it was dedicated to Abraham. The word "Abraham" is none other
than a malpronunciation of the word Brahma. This can be clearly proven
if one investigates the root meanings of both words. Abraham is said to
be one of the oldest Semitic prophets. His name is supposed to be derived
from the two Semitic words 'Ab' meaning 'Father' and 'Raam/Raham' meaning
'of the exalted.' In the book of Genesis, Abraham simply means 'Multitude.'
The word Abraham is derived from the Sanskrit word Brahma. The root of
Brahma is 'Brah' which means - 'to grow or multiply in number.' In addition
Lord Brahma, the Creator God of Hinduism is said to be the Father of all
Men and Exalted of all the Gods, for it is from him that all beings were
generated. Thus again we come to the meaning 'Exalted Father.' This is
a clear pointer that Abraham is none other than the heavenly father Brahma."
The Hindu History; p. 48, in passim.
"Northern Afghanistan was called Uttara Kuru and was a great center
of learning. An Indian woman went there to study and received the title
of Vak, i.e. Saraisvati (Lady Sarah). It is believed that Brahm, her teacher
(and half brother), was so impressed by her beauty, education, and powerful
intellect, that he married her."
Anacalypsis, Vol. I, p. 421.
"...the Temple of Mecca was founded by a colony of Brahmins from
India.it was a sacred place before the time of Mohamed, and.they were
permitted to make pilgrimages to it for several centuries after his time.
(The article goes further to explain how this led Muslims to associate
Abraham and Mecca through Brahma and Hindus. They considered one and the
`The Languages of Harappans' by Maliti J. Shendge (Indian
Linguist and Orientalisy):
"...it may be said that the region from Tigris-Euphrates to the
Indus and its east was inhabited by the Akkadian speaking Semites who
later called themselves as Asshuraiu. Their Indian name as known from
Rgveda is 'Asura' which is not far removed. That this region should be
inhabited by different clans of the same ethos is not very surprising
close look at Brahman revealed its ancestry to be made of two words Abu
+ Rahmu which is the primaeval pair in the Semitic mythology. The Akkadian
counterpart of Rahmu is Lahmu which later became goddess Laksmi, born
in the sea and courted by both gods and demons. Lahmu is a dragon in Akkadian
but in Ugaratic Rahmu is the lass of Abu. Brahma (abu + rahmu = abrahma
= brahma) all the changes postulated here being covered in the above correspondences,
or lass of Abu, the supreme Semitic godhood, has undergone many transformations
and has many counterparts in the Indian pantheon, amongst whom is Laksmi
one of the important ones being worshipped as the goddess of all material
creation. Thus the Asura clan of the Indus valley worshipped Abu-Rahmu
as the primeval couple." (pp.269 - 270.)
The remains of Abraham and Sarai in Hebron may really be those of the
real Brahm and Saraisvati. Abraham was evidently a priest, perhaps even
the founder, of the Abu-Rahmu (Adam and Eve) cultus, who brought his monotheistic
religion to West Asia. Though he and Sarai were deified in various forms
back in their native India, they remained as humans in Judaism.

Phillip Gardiner, research author
Abraham the Israelite father of mankind, and Hiram of the Freemasons,
are one and the same, and both are based upon serpent worshippers with
Indian Naga or serpent deity backgrounds. A grand statement, but one that
I am not alone in making.
Flavious Josephus said in his History of the Jews:
"These Jews are derived from the Indian philosophers; they are named
by the Indians Calani."
Megasthenes, sent to India by Seleucus Nicator, also said that the Jews
were called "Kalani" and that they were an Indian tribe.
Clearchus of Soli said: "The Jews descend from the philosophers
of India. The philosophers are called in India Calanians and in Syria
Jews. The name of their capital is very difficult to pronounce. It is
If Abraham as the father of the Jewish race is therefore a legendary
figure of India, then who is he? And did he exist at all? It's time to
The obvious person for an Indian Abraham is Brahma (A-Brahma) who just
happens to have a consort and sister named Saraisvati  which is amazingly
similar to the name of the Biblical Abraham's wife - Sarai. Indeed Abraham
is said to have learned his trade in Ur (the `Ur of the Chaldees' in the
Bible said to be in ancient Sumer), which is very close to the Persian
border being en-route to India.
It is also a fact that the name of Brahma spread throughout this entire
area so much so, that the Persians even adopted him as one of their deities.
So, the very area where Abraham is said to have learned his priestly trade
is the very area that the Indian Brahma was being spread and worshipped.
What more can we find within this area of the Chaldees?
The Chaldeans were called Kaul-Deva, and they were a priestly caste living
in among other places, Afghanistan, Kashmir and Pakistan. (Kaul-Deva meaning
the Shining Calani, hence these were enlightened Shining Ones, a group
going back to ancient Sumeria and outlined in my book The Shining Ones).
So Abraham/Brahma learned his trade among the Chaldees, who were a priestly
caste related to the Indian sub-continent and were the Shining priesthood
or enlightened souls. In this respect then Abraham was simply a title
given to the high priest or Lord of the sect of Brahma. But if, like in
ancient Egypt, he needed to duplicate the life of the gods, then he too
would have needed a wife/sister. The fact that Saraisvati was both Brahma's
consort and sister, also relates to the Biblical account of Abraham.
