Indic Past Series 7: Mārtānda: The Sun of Younger Dryas and decipherment of the story of Saṃjñā and Chāyā

 The 7th part of the Indic Series aims at establishing Mārtānda, described in the Indic texts, as the Sun of Younger Dryas. In the process of doing this the story of the wives of the Sun, Saṃjñā who deserted her husband and deputed Chāyā in her place is also being deciphered. This story, treated with derision by many starting from Max Muller to Wendy Doniger needs to be revealed in the right purport meant by the rishis.

After revealing the climatic feasibility of sustaining human population during the Ice Age, only within a short band around the equator, in South East Asian region, the video goes on to decipher the story of the two wives. The deglaciation date by Clark et al gives the upper limit of the birth of Vivsavan, the sun growing in brightness around 13,400 BP. Since then the growing heat and brightness had continued only for 500 years by which time the Younger Dryas (Mini Ice Age) had set in.

Within this 500 year period Manu and the fraternal twins namely Yama and Yami were born to Saṃjñā  Birth of Manu signals the birth of a new haplogroup that however suffered reduction in numbers due to the natural calamities explained in the video. Death of many signaled the birth of Yama and Yami! Death was also due to the comet hit that heralded Younger Dryas. This is symbolized by the entry of Chāyā, who by her name indicates shadow and less light.

The birth of Saturn to Chāyā refers to the discovery of the planet Saturn for the first time in human history. Her second child was Manu, who represents a new haplogroup capable of surviving the Ice age. The import of future manvantras is discussed in this context.

Tapati, the third child of Chāyā could refer to the birth of the river Tapati. The root word being ‘tapa’ it is deduced that the Multapi region (source of Tapati) was snow covered during the Ice age and started melting at the beginning of Younger Dryas.

The decipherment of Yama and Yami is done by means of the Rig Vedic hymn and in the two, on the desire of Yami to marry her fraternal twin Yama. Interestingly Natural Selection favours twinning in times of reduction in human population. The marriage between fraternal twins being accepted practice in ancient Bali we get yet another concurrence to the location of Vishakha (Pura Besakih) in Bali.

The Sun of the Younger Dryas was a modified Vivasvan who was known for spreading light. The ancestral society of the Indic people has realized that the loss of the luster was only for a brief period. They named the sun of that period as Mārtānda, one that is not dead within the Anda.
By 11,500 BP, the sun started shining again. That was the birth (or rebirth) of Vivasvan and Vaivasvata Manvantra. So any date of the descendant of Vaivasvata Manu, say of Rama is possible only after this date.

Mārtānda coming to be hailed as the Sun of Adhika Maasa signals another revelation, that the 5 year Yuga concept based on Adhika Maasa could have been conceived only after Younger Dryas when Mārtānda was the sun, that is, after 11500 BP. This brings us to discuss the Yuga concepts in the next episode before we move back to Skanda episodes from Tamil sources.
