Jews are derived from the Indian philosophers; they are named by the Indians Calani.History of the Jews, by Jewish scholar and theologian Flavius Josephus (37 – 100 A.D.), quoting Greek philosopher Aristotle
The Jews descend from the philosophers of India. In India the philosophers are called Calanians. In Syria they are called, Jews.Clearchus of Soli
There are striking similarities between the Hindu god Brahma and his consort Saraisvati and the Jewish patriarch and matriarch, Abram and Sarai. GD changed their names to Abraham and Sarah when they were much older, after making the covenant of the brit (circumcision) with them.
Voltaire was of the opinion that Abraham descended from some of the numerous Brahman priests who left India to spread their teachings throughout the world.Moisés y los Extraterrestres, by Tomás Doreste
In support of his thesis Doreste presented the following elements: the similarity of names and the fact that the city of Ur, land of the patriarchs, was near the border of Persia, the road to India, where Brahma had been born.
Brahma was highly respected in India and his influence spread throughout Persia as far as the lands bathed by the rivers Euphrates and Tigris. The Persians adopted Brahma and made him their own. The Torah states that Abram (Abraham) came from “Ur of the Chaldeans.” “Chaldean,” more correctly Kaul-Deva (Holy Kauls), was not the name of a specific ethnicity but the title of an ancient Hindu Brahmanical priestly caste who lived in what are now Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the Indian state of Kashmir.
The Persians also claim Ibrahim, (Abraham), as their forefather. The Persians, the Jews and the Arabians are descendants of Abraham. Terach, the father of Abraham, originally came from an Eastern country called Ur, of the Chaldees or Culdees, to dwell in a district called Mesopotamia. Some time after he had dwelt there, Abram (Abraham) or Brahma and his wife Sarai (Sarah) or Saraisvati left their father’s family and migrated to Canaan.
In Hinduism, Saraisvati is Brahma’s sister. The Torah says the same of Abram and Sarai. When they were strangers in Egypt, Abram told the Pharaoh that Sarai was his sister. Later, he admitted she was his wife. He also told king Avimelach of Gerar that Sarai was his sister. When the king scolded him for lying, Abram (Abraham) admitted “Sarai is the daughter of my father, but not my mother; and she became my wife.” (Genesis 20:12.)
In India, a tributary of the river Saraisvati is Ghaggar. In Jewish tradition, Hagar was Sarai’s maidservant. It’s hard to miss the similarities between Ghaggar and Hagar.
The Torah also states that Ishmael, son of Hagar and Abram (Abraham), 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.)
The names of Isaac and Ishmael are Sanskrit names: (Hebrew) Yitzhaak / (Sanskrit) Ishakhu. (Hebrew) Ishmael / (Sanskrit) Ish-Mahal.
Indian historian Kuttikhat Purushothama Chon believes that Abram was driven out of India by a flood. The Indo-Aryans, unable to defeat the Asuras (the mercantile caste that once ruled in the Indus Valley or Harappans) spent many years fighting covertly against the Asuras by destroying their huge system of irrigation lakes and causing destructive flooding. Eventually, Abram (Abraham) and his kindred just gave up and marched to West Asia.
Hinduism, which is based on the Vedas (ancient scriptures Rig, Yajur and Sam) are some of the most ancient scriptures in the world. The oldest among them, Rig Veda, is approximately 7,000 years old.
No belief system or religion is truly unique. All religions flow into each other and borrow from each other. Religious stories flow from one religion to the next. Certain aspects change, but core elements remain the same. Could Brahma and Saraisvati and Abram and Sarai (later changed to Abraham and Sarah) be one of those evolving stories? There’s no doubt there are very distinct similarities.
