  1. Hello Sir, i have been trying to study the polar opposite energies that exist in Kaliyuga -

    Like - Vidya - Avidya, Lakshmi - ALakshmi, I was not able to find all the polar opposite energies that prevail in Kali yuga but i did realize this one -

    >Brahma's opposite is Abraham <

    So if Brahma is the creator, then Abraham is the dark destroyer.

    Hence Jews - Christians and Islam are the three dark cities, and they all have warped Shiva lingum at their center.

    So the legend of Tripura will come true in 2012?

    The three dark cities will become one and Shiva will destroy them with one strike?

    Will such warped religions disappear?

  2. hi druv,

    i will be posting on the LOST CIVILIZATION OF ATLANTIS soon.

    there is a Shiva temple at tiruvatikai, tamil nadu which hold the Shiva avatar of TRIPURANTAKA.

    Lord Shiva rode a golden chariot made for the occasion by sage vishwakarma, with Lord Brahma himself driving the chariot. the bow string was serpent vasuki and the bow as MERU

    Shiva destroyed atala or the triple city within a mandala with one single arrow , the pashupatastra ( nuclear missile ).

    the great civilization paid the price for greed and debauchery.

    ramayana talks about the tip of MERU getting shot off and falling down to form modern sri lanka .

    after destroying the triple cities shiva takes holy ash and draws three lines on his forehead as mark of a deed done.

    every country has a finger in the atlantis pie. Vatican has hidden edgar cayce readings about atala or ATLANTIS.
