1. The White "end times" Horse in Hinduism
In the end of days, when this time-cycle ends, Hindus say that....
At this time of chaos, the final avatar, Kalki, will appear on a white horse. The eight Adityas, or solar deities, will shine together in the sky.

I submit that if more people were willing to conduct inter-religious and comparitive-religion studies, we might find out more about what the ancients
were trying to tell us.
