  1. The Vajra of Indra

    Archaeology Institute of America April 2002 reports a bronze club in diamond shape with leather strap dated 4300BP, found near Samara on the Volga Russia. It is discussed in the article as being an origin for Indra's vajra. This suggests Iranian horse tribes or peoples associated with them.

    OK so I need to ask , how Yarrowitch came up in your mind? Gamilaroi country is 20km west of Armidale so ask them who came down to take women. (They will probably deny it all, it was another mob from Dhungutti). Bundjalung say a boat arrived from Ngareenbil "overseas islands" and meaning "your beloved countryman" in Old Balinese language. The 3 brothers and grandmother with Old Bali names gave laws and language to countries. There would be pairs of words anywhere but are they meaning the same thing and used by people who can be shown to be linked? Macassan words in north Australia have the same meaning in the 2 populations, linked by fishing contacts.

    ( hairs rise on back of neck).. Yes Yarrowitch. 1 valley 50km east of Walcha, grew up there..... (blinks..back to topic..) That's Dhungutti , Nganyawana is Armidale. I'm neither Buddhist nor Murri so I post stuff to find any comments which may lead to further inquiry. The Waganna is in Wiradjuri which has the Ngurampaa elders' camp-site as the reference point for places in country. Murawari on the north also has Ngurampaa , and Euahlayi on the west at Bourke has Bida-Ngulu and "fire in forehead" like Chakra. ( All these are from Tibet but it was closely linked with Sumatra 1000 years ago.) "Budar budarum , bugal paigal " : Bundjalung. "Taurai tai kanga" : Gamilaroi.
  4. Buddhism on wheels

    Dharma travelled across mountains and deserts. It sailed to Indonesia . Did it reach east Australia and the rivers of the inland? Here is an outline: At the beginning, Sinhalese and Tamil culture evidently reached Bali Indonesia 2100 years ago, as seen in archaeology of ceramics there identified with south Indian examples. There were gold rings with Kharosthi script from Taxila Punjab. Sinhalese traditions of Indra and rain-maker kings who built water-reservoirs are seen in Angkor Wat and Bali. Hindu-Buddhist kings such as Kertajaya had ships which sailed to west Papua. Kertajaya "disappeared without trace". "Sri Maharaja Kertajaya was the last king of Kadiri Java who reigned circa 1194-1222. . At the end of his reign, he was defeated by Ken Arok of Tumapel or Singhasari , which marked the end of the kingdom of Kadiri . " (this next section is written by an Indonesian with limited English): ". Kertajaya names contained in Nagarakretagama (1365) authored hundreds of years after the time of Kadiri . The historical evidence is the existence of character with the discovery of inscriptions Kertajaya Galunggung (1194), the inscription Kamulan (1194), the inscription Palah (1197), and the inscription Wates Kulon (1205). . From inscriptions it is known the name of empowerment Kertajaya title is Sri Maharaja Sri Sarweswara Triwikramawatara Anindita Srenggalancana mighty Uttunggadewa. . In Pararaton Kertajaya called by the name of King Dandhang Gendis. . Narrated by the end of his reign he says it wants to be worshiped by priests of Hindu and Buddhist . Of course, the desire was rejected, although Dandhang Gendis show off magic by sitting on top of a spear standing. . . The pastors chose refuge in Ken Arok , subordinate Dandhang Gendis the akuwu in Tumapel . Gendis Dandhang absolutely no fear.. He claimed could only be defeated by Shiva . . Hearing this, Ken Arok was put on the title of Lord Master (another name for Shiva ) and move led troops attacked Kadiri . .. The war between Tumapel and Kadiri occurred near the village of Ganter in 1222. The commander Kadiri is Mahisa Walungan (sister Dandhang Gendis) and Gubar Baleman die at the hands of Ken Arok . . Dandhang Gendis himself escaped and hid rise to heaven. . Nagarakretagama also briefly tells the story of the Kertajaya defeat. . Mentioned that Kertajaya escape and hide in dewalaya (god's land ). . Both texts proclaim Kertajaya is a natural refuge of the gods. Presumably in question is Kertajaya hiding inside a temple cult, or maybe Kertajaya killed and becomes smooth natural inhabitants ( hereafter ) In later periods, Kediri economy grew to rely more heavily on trade, especially the spice trade. This resulted from Kediri development of a navy, giving them the opportunity to control the spice trade routes to eastern islands.

    Thanks Nungali There certainly was the Dreaming , the ancient animism. As in Bali there seems to be a combination with dharma but the Buddhist element may be identified.

    Hullo I'm a new guy who is old and retired , taking information and asking questions, looking forward by seeing the ancient Dreaming of Australian Aboriginal people. Their time-frame is continual : the past and future exist now . This is not so strange when some faiths have prophecies which influence life now and their deities are ever-existent. So I googled phurba and mudra and like a flash of light in dark screens , the wise ones are speaking. There was a small-pox epidemic ( again ) when Europeans forced their terror gunpowder into tribal life and in 1835 there was a "wacanna" with "gudtha" and "mudthirra" in Australia to protect against the disease. (Speakers of Javanese language will know what I'm on about). It included using 9 inch twigs in the song-dance which were struck against the arms of others in the dance. More details will follow after this hurried introduction . After all , they died 2 centuries ago ......
  7. Good day

    Paper and ink are wonderful inventions and much of our past is lost because ancestors chose to memorise instead of write. Or wrote on tree-leaves or bark or painted on rock without leaving sub-titles. ("This is Ung hunting a hgexvtwk in summer 5468 BC"). I'm curious about ancient Australia and naturally came here. Speak to you all later.
