I'm a sri lankan tamil, my father has chola origins and my mother is one of the original inhabitants of northern sri lanka, they were called the Naga
people because they worshiped cobras. Either way the naga were assimilated into tamil but spoke a more primitif dravidian language before that.
Any ways I had the good fortune of going to sri lanka when I was 10, and I flew to India from colombo and fortunately I got a window seat
there once we came to the north I had fun looking at all the small islands and truth be told, you could literally walk really close to india, you
could make it if you manage to swim. My parents told me how in their parent's time during july , the hottest month, the water recedes and apparently
once you were able to walk really far that you saw the coast of india!
Now to India, Have any of you heard of chidambaram temple?
Here we woship shiva and we have three differente forms of our god
One has a physical manifestation like a human-Natarajah
second as a lingam, symbolising god is in everything
and an empty shrine to represent god as aether
Interestingly this temple is loacted at the magnetic center of the world!!!!!
Out of curiosity I tried to find the opposite side of this magnetic center and guess what?
It falls just a little short from machu pichu!
This can't be a coincidence, we clearly lost a connection with civilizations but thee was something....
I know this isn't exactly the same topic but just wanted to share it
Also look at the similarities between hinduism"s lingam and the inthihuatana
