Konark Sun Temple - Not Hindu Temple?

 Konark Sun Temple - Not Hindu Temple?

Konark Sun Temple - Not Hindu Temple?


 Imagine that you are child who is only 5 yearsold and your parents have taken you to the Konark Sun Temple. This is the thing that you would find in this sanctuary. At the lowest level of the temple, you willsee what children are naturally interested in: Animals. There are exquisite carvings of various animalsand their behaviors. For example, you see how baby elephants hangaround their mothers. How monkeys behave. Some are even funny, like today's cartoonnetwork. Here you can see how human beings use tamedelephants to capture a wild elephant. This is a cage, and you can see how the sculptorhad brilliantly carved the elephant inside the cage.


Ancient Temple

 This was ancient India's animal planet. But this temple doesn't stop there, I am gonnashow you how Konark temple was built as an encyclopedia, as a University which teachesvarious subjects for all age groups. I have realized that you can divide this templeinto many different subjects according to its height. The first 2 feet are carved for small childrenbelow 5 years, and when you reach the ages between 6 to 10, you are going to see thingslike dancing, singing and playing musical instruments. The temple holds an enormous amount of carvingsabout music and dancing. This is odyssey, the traditional dance ofthe region. There are 128 postures of traditional Indiandance, carved in this temple. If you are tough kid, you can also see martialarts like boxing and wrestling. Obviously, life would be unpleasant without games.. So you can learn games like the tug of waras well. The third level, fit for a very long time between 11 and15 has tremendous logical data, explicitly space science.

 This wheel is a sundial that can tell theaccurate time, precisely down to a minute! The temple, dedicated to the Sun God Suryais a giant symbolic representation of how the Sun works. The temple is shaped as a chariot with 24wheels representing 24 hours of the day, featuring 3 sun gods : the morning sun with a happyface, the somber noon sun andsun and the night sun with a pitiful face. But all experts and commoners have missedsomething very important.

 What are these weird animals carved on eitherside of the chariot?

 They are horses in an extremely disintegratedstate, they were disfigured by foreign invaders. There are a total of 7 horses which pull thechariot of the sun. Presently, Why is the chariot being pulled by 7horses? 

Some state, much the same as the 24 wheels represent24 hours of the day, the 7 ponies speak to 7 days of the week. But this is not true. Astronomers agree that the 7 days of the weekare not connected to the Sun at all, and some civilizations even had 8 day weeks, becauseit is not relevant to the movement of the sun and the earth. So, why is the chariot of the Sun god beingpulled by 7 horses? If you talk to the elderly people in thisarea, they reveal some intriguing information. They say that each of the 7 horses was paintedwith a different color of the rainbow. Thus, this pony was most likely painted with violet,this one with indigo, etc. Now, we know that Issac Newton discoveredthat sun light is not white, but made of 7 different colors. This was an alarming revelation back then,and even now it is difficult to acknowledge that daylight is really made of 7 unique hues. Newton discovered this in 1600s, but thistemple was built nearly 400 years before Newton, so how did the ancient builders know thatthe Sun light was actually made of different colors? More importantly,

 why aren't historians recordingthis in their books?

 Anyway, now you know why the Sun God's chariotis being pulled by 7 different horses. In the next level, which belongs to age groupsfrom 16 - 20, You can also learn a lot about politics, war and administration. Here we see the military of ancient kingdomand you can even see the flag. We can see how kings were dealing with commonersin a court. You can also see how executions were done,here a man is being crushed by an elephant. Here you can see people carrying a Palanquin,safely transporting the queen. You can learn about international connections. In this sculpture, you can see a group ofAfricans with a Giraffe, meeting the Indian King. This carving is still baffling historians,because they claim that Africa never had a flourishing civilization.

 You can see Greeks and Chinese as well inthis temple. Of course you can learn other softer occupationslike Fashion technology - I have shown already shown you high heels, skirts, hairdos, ina different video. Here, I must point out that Hinduism is avery superstitious religion. All over India, couples who are not able tohave children visit their local priests, and the priests advise them to visit Konark Templeand spend 21 days here. The ritual requires that the couples walkaround the temple in the morning and the evening, every day. Of course, the real reason becomes obviousonce you look at the carvings at the next level. Konark temple probably has more erotic sculpturesthan any other temple in India. There is no way, you are not going to be influencedby these sculptures which number in the thousands. We think the system of sex education was createdin western countries, but historians and archeologists are not telling us that India had a very systematicapproach in educating people about sex. And this is not just limited to postures bythe way.

what does this carving show?

 A woman is standing on a flame, right afterchildbirth to prevent infections. Believe it or not, the tribe called Bondawho live in the region, still follow this routine. The women burn neem wood and stand on it,right after childbirth. These moms actually start working right afterthe delivery, like it is nothing. The last layer which has a place with the age group25 or more has figures of different Gods, which was not kidding business It is for very mature people who are readyto delve into the subject of the gods. You would only look up, if you were not distractedby the erotic sculptures. There are also sublevels of how to look atthese gods, but that's another video. Now, what we see today is just the outsideof the temple. The main structure has been completely destroyedand what we see here is not the main structure, but a smaller structure built in front ofthe main structure. Even this one has been completely sealed off,so we can't see what's inside. If this the amount of knowledge we can gainfrom outside the temple, Imagine 

what could have been inside the temple?

 It is a shame that we have let this destructionhappen because we would have had access to some of the biggest secrets of ancient India. On the off chance that you visit a cutting edge Hindu sanctuary constructed today,these places are about confidence and business. Every God is placed strategically for thevisitor's convenience and nearby every idol is a donation box hoping that these visitorswill put in some money. If you look at temples older than 500 years,there is a huge difference. Temples like Konark were not just built forfaith, but were built as an encyclopedia, a museum, or a University to educate people. This is why Konark should not be labeled merelyas a Hindu temple, because people of any faith can gain enormous amount of knowledge by visitinghere.

 Even if you are an atheist, the amount ofinformation you can see in this temple, surpasses any other museum in the world. So,

 what do you think?

 Was Konark Temple constructed simply to spread faith,or was it worked as a reference book in 3D, to teach us?Please let me know your thoughts in the commentssection.

What Actually Happens in Bermuda Triangle

What Actually Happens in Bermuda Triangle
The Bermuda Triangle is an area in the AtlanticOcean. How much area it covers is not very specific,but it’s thought somewhere between 1,300,000 to 3,900,000 km2 (500,000 to 1,510,000 sq.miles). If you look at it on a map you can imaginea triangle whose tips reach Miami, Puerto Rico and Bermuda. That doesn’t mean there is an exact linedown each side of the triangle and after that nothing spooky can happen, but it’s moreor less an estimate of the area. while others have said this is nothing but superstitious balderdash. First of all, no one is making up a storythat ships and planes go missing or are destroyed in this area. That’s not fake news or old wives’ tales,it’s just some people believe there is something other-worldly at work, and others just saythe rotten luck of those that died was down to the whims of the weather or human error. You can go back to the time of ChristopherColumbus as to when the mystery caught fire. In his case, he actua…

Butthe ocean is full of surprises!! Researchers discovered in the 1980s that things weren’tquite as simple as that, when technology allowed them to map the ocean’s floor for the firsttime. Stretching away from the coast of Californiais a geological formation that has all the features of a river system. Two miles beneaththe Pacific Ocean, is a deep canyon, which leads into a valley that stretched for 200miles before spilling out onto the abyssal plain of the ocean. Channels like this have been discovered allover the world, with some running for thousands of miles and comparable in size to the longestrivers on land. They have banks along their sides, tributaries that feed into them, theytak…
