Anyhow, while reading the texts, I came across a section discussing the cycles of time; creation and dissolution. It mentions, in very obvious terms that indicate the popular and modern concept of pole shifts.
It says this has happened fives times on Earth already.
It states that at the end of a certain period of time, a physical pole reveral takes place on earth.
The points of the compass are altered
causing the climates to change, continents to shift from place to place, to part glacier regions and part mountainous regions and lands begins to sinq under water affecting all life on the planet. This happens suddenly.

fascinating stuff indigo and it's nice to see back around
*per the texts, it said pole shifts have happened 5 times already right?
Well is there any scientific proof to back this up? Or would you consider certain events, such as the Great Flood of the Bible to perhaps be one of the last times that there was a pole shift??
wish I could read sanskrit
Agastya - Humbling the Vindhya mountains
Legend says that the Vindhya mountains that separate north and south India from each other once showed a tendency to grow so high as to obstruct the usual trajectory of the sun. This was accompanied by increasing vanity on the part of that mountain range, which demanded that Surya, the sun-God, should circum-ambulate the Vindhyas in the same way as he does Mount Meru [identified by some as being the north pole]. The need arose to subdue, by guile, the Vindhyas, and Agastya was chosen to do that.
Agastya journeyed from north to south, and on the way encountered the now impassible Vindhya mountains. He asked the mountain range to facilitate his passage across to the south. In reverence for so eminent a sage as Agastya, the Vindhya mountains bent low enough to enable the sage and his family to cross over and enter south India. The Vindhya range also promised not to increase in height until Agastya and his family returned to the north. Agastya settled permanently in the south, and the Vindhya range, true to its word, never grew further. Thus, Agastya accomplished by guile something that would have been impossible to accomplish by force

Did the authors at the time even have compasses?
As recorded by Bukhari, Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (pbuh) said: "The Hour will not come until the following events have come to pass: people will compete with one another in constructing high buildings; two big groups will fight one another, and there will be many casualties --- they will both be following the same religious teaching; earthquakes will increase; time will pass quickly; afflictions and killing will increase; nearly thirty dajjals (antichrist) will appear, each of them claiming to be a messenger from Allah; a man will pass by a grave and say, 'Would that I were in your place'; the Sun will rise from the West; when it rises and the people see it, they will all believe, but that will be the time when 'No good will it do to a soul to believe in them then, if it believed not before'.
