Svetlana Zharnikova - the culture of the Rus is many thousands of years old

You can often hear that the Russians are not a people, but a kind of hodgepodge. That this is a young ethnos, who came from nowhere. This is a lie, but the truth is that the culture of the Rus, Slavic-Aryans served as the cradle for most other civilizations.

My today's report is prompted by the dire necessity that our time dictates to us. The fact is that more and more maxims appear in the media, from which it can be concluded that Russians are not an ethnic group at all, that they are not a people, but a kind of hodgepodge. That this is a young ethnos, who came from nowhere.

We are even talking about the fact that we are not an indigenous people in this territory. And when you hear such things, you understand that this is very serious. Seriously, if only because we today, the so-called "Russians", are only 4% of the world population. This is very small. We occupy 1/7 of the land, which contains 30% of the world's coal reserves, 40% of oil, 45% of gas, 90% of platinum, 20% of the world's agricultural land, 20% of the world's fresh water, etc. All this belongs to 4% of the world's population, which the remaining 96% will not allow to simply sit on this wealth. But if the bulk of 96% is only indignant, then there are those who say:

What are you doing here and what do you have to do with this land? It is not clear where you came from. You destroyed the indigenous population of these territories … and in general, isn't it time for you to go somewhere else from here?

It is not clear, really, what time? At the same time, a number of very interesting circumstances are forgotten.

Rasha, Rus, Scythians, Vesi, Chudya …

1. In English until now, our ethnonym sounds like "Russia", and "Rush"Or" Risha "in Sanskrit means Sages. In French, "rishis" are rich. But in ancient times, wealth presupposed - the wealth of knowledge, and not just material wealth.

2… We forget that the very term “rus»In all Indo-European languages ​​means LIGHT, CLEAR.

3… Ptolemy as early as the 2nd century A.D. talked about the fact that in the north of Europe between the Baltic and the Urals live Scythoalans… In the Scandinavian Sagas of the beginning of our era. it is said that from the Baltic to the Urals throughout northern Europe live Alans, who are called Rus-Alansor Scythian Alans. The Greeks called us back in the early Middle Ages Scythians-Rus… Finally, Adam of Bremen in the XI century said that from the Baltic to the Urals lived the so-called. Alans, who call themselves "weigh"Or" hang ".

Today's speculations about the fact that the ancient great people of the Vepsians were destroyed by the Slavs throughout the Russian North is a myth. Because "the whole"Means POSITION, NEIGHBOR, RELATIVE, this is an ancient Indo-European word. Our cities and towns sound like that - cities and settlements.

4… As for the "white-eyed chudi", which was also destroyed by the "malevolent Rus", it turns out that weirdin Sanskrit it means - CHUB, KHOHOL, OGELETS, that which is still worn in India by brahmanas. Or our Cossacks - Prince Svyatoslav, Prince Igor and others like him, all the so-called Varangians wore this oseledets (chudyu). In Indian domestic rituals there is even such a term - "chudya karna", i.e. haircut chudi, leaving this very crest.

And lastly, they were white-eyed, i.e. so light-eyed that they aroused the interest of others, because the bulk of the population of our planet is still dark-eyed and dark-haired people.

5. Rites… Let us compare our domestic rituals (which do not disappear even with a change in the religious system), with those that the Aryans carried to the territory of Hindustan, about the 3rd millennium BC.For example, we wish health to the sneezing; much in common in wedding and funeral rituals; childbirth rituals; Hindus send sacrifices and prayers to their ancestors on the new moon, and in the Russian North, even at the beginning of the twentieth century, they turned to the new month with a prayer for health, etc.

If the Russian people are not the indigenous population of the north of Eastern Europe, then where did they get home rituals of many thousands of years ago, completely identical to the ancient Aryan rites? Considering that these peoples parted at least 4 thousand years ago.

6… Today, analyzing the dialectal forms of the Russian North, there are already hundreds of words, Sanskrit terms, which are broader in their meanings than classical Sanskrit. We must agree with G.S. Grinevich - Sanskrit is a secondary language in relation to the Proto-Russian language… Moreover, the largest Indian Sanskritologist Durga Prasad Shastri, having visited Russia, said: “If I were asked which two languages ​​in the world are closest to each other, I would not hesitate to answer - Russian and Sanskrit”.

We must not forget the fact that today the names of almost all rivers and lakes of the Russian North can be translated, if not from the Slavic languages, then in the bulk from Sanskrit, otherwise the etymology becomes incomprehensible. Vocabulary, ornamentation, names of rivers, lakes, villages, cities - all this says a lot.

* Did you know that the ancient name of Arkhangelsk is Pur-Navolok… Not Hastinapur, not Singapore, where "Pur" is already in the second part of the name, just like Leningrad, Petrograd. But we have Grad-Moscow, this is a more archaic form of the phrase, when “Grad” is in front, and so is Pur-Navolok, which later turned into Arkhangelsk.

* Did you know that the birthplace of Lomonosov is a city Kholmogorystands on three islands: Kur, Nal, Ukht… Where Kur and Nal in Mahabharata are the ancestors of the Aryans (two brothers). Ukhta - in Sanskrit means "song". And the river Kholmogorka back in the 19th century was called "padra", which in Sanskrit means “village”.

Russian mentality

Thus, the Russian people have a many-thousand-year history of living in a territory where there is a huge amount of minerals, rivers, lakes, huge forests (which we are now crushing at a wild speed). And with such delight we litter our language, which the world's largest linguists call proto-language. We litter it with all sorts of Anglicisms, and often call our Motherland “this country”.

Yes, our ancestors lived in this country many thousands of years ago. They left us their memory, their rituals, their songs, their fairy tales and their mentality, the very mentality that was preserved in the words of Dmitry Donskoy: “There is no more happiness than standing up for your friends". This mentality, when the person who thinks about his people, and then about himself, remains, is the root, basic one. And when we are shown films called Basic Instinct, we are simply not told that there are three basic instincts:

- the instinct of self-preservation, - the instinct of procreation, - the instinct to preserve the species.

So, the instinct to preserve a species (or one's own people) is higher than the other two. And all this is in the mentality, in the ritual practice of our people, and the fact that it is ancient confirms all of the above.

Interview with Svetlana Vasilievna Zharnikova at the Second Congress of Vedic Culture

QUESTION:What do you personally mean by Vedic culture. How relevant do you think the topic of the development of Vedic culture in modern society?

Quite a difficult question.Personally, I do not think that what we are developing today is Vedic culture, it is, perhaps, a continuation of the general cultural tradition that has existed for many thousands of years. We call it Vedic culture conventionally. Actually we develop our ethnic culture on the territory of our Motherland… Because it is called Vedic in relation to India, but we do not live in India, but in Russia, where the main forms of this culture took shape. Therefore, rather all the same, we are developing not the Vedic, but the ancient Rus culture; we continue it further, in its natural development.

QUESTION:Do you consider the Vedas, the epics "Mahabharata", "Ramayana" Indian heritage or the heritage of the Russian people too?

Of course, this is the heritage of the Russian people. Because Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin, for example, I do not know what source he used, but his "Ruslan and Lyudmila" is more archaic than "Ramayana" in many of their parameters and some situations, although in principle these two monuments, separated by many thousands of years, are identical. The only question is, what is "mom" here, and what is "daughter"? In essence, what A.S. Pushkin, or rather the source from which he drew, is more archaic than the Ramayana.

Or hymns "Rigveda" describe the state of the circumpolar sky, the state of nature and what is generally impossible to see in India (the rotation of the constellations around the polar star) - then how can we say that this is a purely Indian phenomenon? A lot was carried away from here to there, and was created in a single block, otherwise there would be no uniform rituals, uniform vocabulary, uniform names of rivers, lakes, etc. The entire system was transferred to a new territory and was preserved there, since it ended up in a different ethnic environment (Dravidian), and here they did not particularly stand on ceremony with all this …

QUESTION: Do you see any contradictions in the existing religious, social culture of the country that may arise during the development of Vedic culture? Or will it fit organically into modern society?

Vedic culture will more than organically fit into modern society, if only because all religious systems, the so-called "world religions" take their source from the same source. In the first book of "Mahabharata" by Adiparva, the structuring of the Universe is described in a fairly clear way. At first, according to the Creator's thought, which he voiced with the Word (i.e., the voiced thought is already a word), a certain egg appeared, in which the absolute Light, unimaginable, omnipresent from which everything comes out and into which everything returns, was eternal BRAHMO, and it only had one property - Sound… Now any physicist will subscribe to this and say that the wave is what is the beginning. BRAHMO is ether, in the concept that Newton once spoke about, i.e. a stream of quanta, or torsion fields, in general, is what transmits information from one object to another, and it really has only one property - a sound wave. Then there are seven sounds and a chord, and the next stage - Wind (motion). The wave generates movement (without movement, without hesitation, no transformation is possible). It has one property - touch. And finally, the third component appears - Light, which already has three properties - sound, touch, image… The image is that which is connected with the physical embodied world.

What is denied here in Christianity? In Christianity, in its closed doctrine it is the same, God is Light and there is no Darkness in him. And the same trinity of structuring. First there was a thought; thought was turned into a word; the word starts to work and creates the universe.

What will you find new in Judaism? The same thing, God is Light and there is no Darkness in him.

What will you find new in Islam? Allah is the radiance of the radiated Word.

And in Islam, and in Christianity, and in Judaism, there is a process, if not vulgarization, then simplification of complex philosophical categories, in order to understand the bulk.

QUESTION: How important do you think historical research in the field of Aryan culture is, how can they influence the course of history?

A man, like a tree, cannot live without roots. That the value system that exists in the modern world leads to nowhere… It is necessary to return to self-identity, to common Indo-European values. And as already mentioned, you need to remember your history, otherwise others will come and say - we have lived here all the time, you have nothing to do here.

QUESTION: How can the holding of the congress of the Vedic culture of the Aryans-Indoslavs influence the culture of Russia and the consciousness of people?

If it will be popularized and shown powerfully enough on the Internet, then it will give a certain resonance. Generally speaking, there is a great deal of interest in this issue. Many are now trying to find a Spiritual core, and find it, for example, in yoga. But in the name of what and for what? If you are engaged in these practices, then all the same, keep in mind that in the spiritual sense, this source is originally here. You go across three seas to drink some water, when the key from which this water flows is at your feet. It is necessary for the youth to understand this, and in general to realize the depth of their historical space. And when people give the opportunity to spit on themselves, they begin to spit. I was really amazed when I heard on television that we have a holiday of indigenous peoples, and the Russian is not an indigenous people. Why should small peoples be considered indigenous, and what big ones … were formed out of thin air?

We are not the children of idiots and not the grandchildren of idiots, but the children of a great nation

Russian people worship not the sun, which is only a material embodiment of Light, but the absolute, universal Superlight, which is in everything and which cannot be seen and realized, from which everything comes out and everything comes back. When you understand this, then you can understand why did the Egyptians drive out Akhenaten, who carried out his own reform - instead of worshiping Amon-Ra, i.e. Light, began to worship Aton (solar disk). Translated one into another, there is such a decline.
