Were Israelites in INDIA?
did the lost Israelites go? Did they migrate to INDIA? Did they invent
was taken captive "unto Halah, and Habor, and Harah (Aria, Ariana,
Arachosia, Harat) and to the river Gozan (Gauzanitis or Cyrus River)"
(1 Chr. 5:26) "and in the cities of the Medes" (2 Ki. 17:6).
These people were known as "the house of ISAACA" (Amos 7:16)
since Genesis 21:12 says, "in ISAAC shall thy seed be called."
There is an ISSYK Kul (Isaac's Lake) in eastern central Asia. But since
the Hebrew alphabet was originally written without vowel points, there
was no "I" originally. Strabo places these SACAE east of the
Caspian. BENI-ISRAEL can be found in Hindustan also and on the borders
of Burmah and Siam. SACAE seized Bactriana and about a century after Alexander
they established their rule from the Aral Lake to the mouth of the Indus.
They then invaded central India and fell under the dominion of the Parthians
-- probably of the same race -- and finally were absorbed into the kingdom
of the Sassanidae, also SACAE. The religion of these SAKAI, the SAKHS
of Indian history, was BUDDHISM. The rock inscriptions, left in India
and Turkestan by the early founders of BUDDHISM, were HEBREW. The Hebrew
root BUDDH means "ALONE" (used of Israel in Hosea 8:9). "BUDII"
means "the SEPARATED people" and occurs as a tribal name both
in ancient MEDIA, and in connection with the SCUTHS in Europe.
Two Ephraimite Branches Called Budii?
Herodotus says that the BUDII were a tribe of MEDIA (Herod. 1:101). Herodotus
also mentions another branch of the BUDII as a great and populous nation
amongst the SCYTHIANS who had adopted SCYTHIAN customs (4:108). These
BUDII were probably two branches of Ephraimites because Hosea 11:5-6 says
Ephraim "shall not return into the land of Egypt, but the Assyrian
shall be his king, because they refused to return. And the sword shall
abide on his cities, and shall consume his branches (Heb."BADDHAI"),
and devour them (the BADDHAI), because of their own counsels." The
SACAE and BUDII moved east into northern India about 60 years after the
Scythians had overrun Media and Mesopotamia -- about 625 B.C. They may
have become RAJPUTS and BRAHMANS. The worship of cows was the sin of Israel
(1 Ki. 12:28) and they brought it with them to India. The BRAHMANS have
among themselves TEN distinct classes, or rather nations.... One hundred
miles northeast of Benares, at Kapilivastu, on the banks of the river
Rohini, the modern KOHANS, there lived about 500 B.C. a tribe called SAKYAS
(Saxons).... Gautama (lord Buddha) had many titles, one of which was SAKYASHINA.
He was also called 'the LION of the tribe of SAKYA, SAKYAMUNI, the SAKYA
Sage, Sugata the Happy One, Sattha the Teacher.'" This Buddha is
called MAGA (a Magian) by the Burmese and in Burmah, Arracan, Ceylon and
Siam the sacred language of Buddhism is called the language of the MAGI.
The priests of the Bactrians, Chorasmians, Arians and Sacae were called
MAGI (Asiatic Researches 11:76-80). When SAKYA died, those who especially
honored him were the SAKYAS of Kapilivastu, and they did so saying, "The
Blessed One was the pride of our race" (of Saxons). The religion
of these SAKAI, the SAKHS of Indian history, proves to be BUDDHISM. The
rock inscriptions, left in India and Turkestan by the early founders of
BUDDHISM, prove to be HEBREW.
the Bible Predict BUDDHISM?
760 B.C., Amos 8:10-14 says, "I will turn your FEASTS into MOURNING,
and all your SONGS into LAMENTATION; and I will bring up SACKCLOTH upon
all loins, and BALDNESS upon every head; and I will make it like the MOURNING
for an only SON, (Gautama Buddha) and the end of it like a BITTER day.
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in
the land ... of hearing the words of the Lord. And they shall wander from
sea to sea, and from the north even to the EAST( in India), they shall
run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord and shall not find it. In
that day shall the fair VIRGINS and YOUNG MEN faint for THIRST. They that
swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, By the life of thy God Dan! And
By the life of the way of Beersheba! They shall fall and rise no more."
Israelites became BUDDHISTS, all these predictions were literally fulfilled.
Buddhist festivals are full of MOURNING. Their songs are LAMENTATIONS.
All devotees to Buddha adopt SACKCLOTH as their clothing and they all
make themselves BALD. BALD-headed devotees of Buddha are Sons of SACKCLOTH
and the ordination of the priests is to this day a refinement of AUSTERITY
since, according to the Karma Wakya, or Book of Ritual, they are required
to wear a robe of FILTHY RAGS, and subject themselves to every form of
DEGRADATION. Vows of CELIBACY by Buddha-worshippers in many parts of the
East are well known. Indeed, in all countries professing Buddhism, priests
are sworn to a life of CELIBACY and the number of NUNS is enormous. This
is why the young men and women "faint for thirst." Dan is one
of the three names of Buddha given in the inscriptions both at Girnar
and Delhi (cp. Amos 8:13-14).
3:24 says, "it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there
shall be STINK; and instead of a girdle, a ROPE; and instead of well-set
hair, BALDNESS; and instead of a robe. a girding of SACKCLOTH; and BRANDING
instead of beauty." Ezekiel 7:16-18 says, "They that escape
... shall be ... MOURNING, every one for his iniquity.... They shall also
gird themselves with SACKCLOTH, and HORROR shall cover them; and SHAME
shall be upon all faces, and BALDNESS upon all their heads."
word for "mourning" in verse 16 is "homoth," the plural
form of the initial word of perpetual BUDDHIST prayers. Without this word
all their MANTRAS and incantations would be deemed unavailing.
For an Only Son" -- Buddha?
The rock inscriptions of early BUDDHISM are one great cry of desolation,
of ruin ever present and all hope gone. The founder of BUDDHISM was a
prince of the SAKAN race, himself bearing the name of SAKYA, or more fully
SAKYA Muni. Born in India about the year 618 B.C., at an early age he
had risen to be prince of the surrounding peoples, preached for 40 years
about charity and chastity, overturned many tyrannies, declared equality
between high and low caste and founded hospitals and raised women to equality.
Furthermore, he taught the coming of a seed of a woman of the SAKYAN race,
who would crush the serpent's head and bring peace to the world. He remodeled
the languages by compiling new Sanskrit and Pali grammars incorporating
HEBREW in Pali form. After his death idolatry and innovations crept into
BUDDHISM making it a poor reflection of what the SAKYA had taught.
Union Jack & Star-Spangled Banner?
of these SAKAI and BUDII came south. These left a curious rock carving
(see picture above) on the gates of the large tope at Sanchi, or SACHI,
called the Star Banner. This banner, composed of two UNION JACKS, one
above the other on the right and a banner of STARS on the left, surmounts
the LION and UNICORN with a shield or UNION JACK between them. This Sachi
is 20 miles north-east of Bhopal, and the device goes back to 300 B.C.
This is an ancient forerunner of the Star-Spangled banner and Union Jack.
Balaam compared Israel to a "UNICORN" and a "LION"
(Num.23:22; 24:8) which foreshadows the heraldic coat of arms of the British
Empire. The STARS represent the TRIBES of ISRAEL (Gen. 37:5-11) and the
UNION JACK symbolizes Jacob's CROSSED hands (Gen. 48:14).
George Moore's The Lost Tribes explains that a joint army of SAKHS
and YAVANAS (Greeks) under Alexander the Great (possibly an Argive DANITE)
entered India and mentions the subsequent SAKAN conquest of the Panjab,
the connection between the SAKAI and the two great PARTHIAN dynasties,
that of the Arsakids and Sassanids, each of which defeated the armies
of Imperial Rome periodically. Then the survival of the SAKAI themselves
through the KHOZARS or Kosi of the dark ages, to the ruling AFGHANS of
the present day. The so-called Tatar dynasty of the KHOZARS, who, leaving
their homes on the edge of the Caspian Sea, became the lords of central
India from the sixth century to the tenth, are the link between the SAKHS
or SAKAI of the older area and the modern descendants in Bokhara and Afghanistan.
Dr. Moore says, "Their sovereigns had, as early as the tenth century,
been from time immemorial HEBREWS." But apart from this historical
link, there is abundant evidence as to the ISRAELITE origin of the AFGHAN
PATHANS. They resemble the HEBREW family. The AFGHAN PATHANS have always
called themselves BENI ISRAEL, still all the while expressing contempt
for the JEWS. Among their tribal names are those of YUSSUF-szye (tribe
of JOSEPH) and IZAK-szye (tribe of ISAAC). Moreover, HEBREW names of places
and persons are very numerous. These names existed before the Afghans
were Mohammedans. They call themselves Pathan not Afghan. Their language
known as Pushtu, is said to contain more HEBREW roots than any other.
The name CABUL (applied to the capital, the river, and the nation of the
Afghans) was anciently spelled CABURA, the phonetic equivalent of HABOR.
Near CABURA, Ptolemy places a nation called Aristophyli or "the Noble"dated
100 B.C. Inscriptions at Girnar and Delhi have the names DAN, SAK and
GOTH upon them. On the wall of a rock temple in Kanari, about 20 miles
from Bombay, a Hebrew inscription with Pali characters, occur the names
SAKA, DAN and GOTHA in connection with the devastation wrought upon them
Confucius, Zoroaster & Cyrus Israelites?
Further east in China, CONFUCIUS was born in 584 B.C. He denounced vice
and immorality and preached pure religion. "To treat others according
to the treatment which they themselves would desire at their hands,"
"To guard their secret thoughts," that "true renown consists
in straightforward and honest sincerity, in the love of justice, in the
knowledge of mankind, and in humility" -- such were some of his instructions
to the Chinese. He advocated the "LAW of RETALIATION" so prominent
in the Mosaic code and he is called to the present day "The most
holy teacher of ancient times." The "Narrative of Eldad the
Danite" (ninth century A.D.) says some of the ten tribes reached
CHINA. Did they teach CONFUCIUS? ZOROASTER was the lawgiver of the Medes
in 600 B.C. CYRUS who founded the Persian Empire and was called the "SERVANT
of the LORD" to restore the Jews and whose work was foretold in prophecy,
was also probably SAXON. God chose only one people to be his servants
and witnesses to "shew forth his praise among the nations" (Isa.
43:21). "You only have I known of all the families of the earth"
(Amos 3:2). Therefore, "in thy seed shall all families of the earth
be blessed" (Gen. 18:18).
