HINDUISM AND SANATAN DHARMA

Mithira is said to have been adapted into the Zoroastrian pantheon from the Rig Vedic deity ‘Mitra’ who is ‘an important divinity of Indic culture, and the patron divinity of honesty, friendship, contracts and meetings’. Also the word ‘mitra’ (मित्र) often translated as ‘friend’ from Sanskrit, also means ‘sun’.

A Uratian ‘Vishapa’ is connected with water
much like the Vedic Shivalinga. The Uratian pagan
tradition was gradually rejected by the Zoroastrians.


‘Mitra’ evolved into its Zoroastrian form of ‘Mithira’ during the Bronze and Iron Ages, and was later carried to Greece by remnants of Alexander the Great’s armies in the 3rd-2nd century BC, where it was incorporated into the Greek concept of the ‘Helios’- the Sun god. Again ‘heli’ (हेलि) means ‘sun’ in Sanskrit.


The Temple of Garni was built in the 2nd…

33 crore deva in Hinduism? Correct concept is 33 Koti Deva-explained???

HINDUISM AND SANATAN DHARMA

Concept of 33 crore devta???? EXPLAINED- 

The Vedas refer to not 33 KOTI(TYPE NOT CRORE) Devatas but 33 types (Koti in Sanskrit) of Devatas. They are explained in Shatpath Brahman and many other scriptures very clearly.

“Yasya Trayastrinshad Devaa Ange Sarve Samaahitaa, Skamma Tam Bruhi Katamah Swideva Sah”. ~(Atharva Veda 10-7-13)
