THE EVOLUTION OF SHAIVISM
have written extensively on Hinduism and its development earlier.
This book is the normal development on the same theme,
concentrating on the Dravidian Shaivism. Shaivism or Saivism is one of
the major religions of India, which is popular in South India and in
all other areas where Dravidians are found.
my earlier studies, I have indicated that Dravidians are actually of
the Hebrew-Semitic origin, being of the family of Eber, the
great-grandson of Eber from whom the name Hebrew came. This will
explain why Abraham took a wife from there and why he sent his children
to the East when he divided his property. Based on this fact it
is understandable that the religion of Indus Valley Civilization may
have been the religion of Abraham. Was it? Since we have no
documentations with us from this period we cannot make a definite
statement on it. But it is certainly the best guess.
Japhetic Aryan whites entered in the area they brought with them their
Vedic religion, and we have their oral traditions in the Vedas.
It is only logical to think that there must be some reference to
the God of Abraham in them. The Dravidian God is found in the
Vedas as Rudra - the angry warrior, a God who is feared by his enemies.
In fact, the very name Yhvh is found also in several parts of the
Vedas as an epithet.
by 750 BC the gods of Vedas literally disappeared from the religious
scenario of Indus Valley. A new oral tradition of Dravidian
ascetics known as Upanishads and Aranyaka identical to the Jewish
Kabballah came into existence. This presented the God of Abraham
as the only God and named Him as Brahman. The priests of Brahman
were now called Brahmins in contrast to Vedic Priests who were known by
soon after the beginning of the Christian Era, the Rudra who was the
angry warrior God turned out to be called Siva - and was defined as
love. Siva - “God is love.” This total 180-degree
turnaround happens to coincide with the long toil of the Apostle of
Thomas starting from AD 40 till AD 72. The reaction to this
Christian God of love who incarnated in human form to die for the
sins of the world came in the form of Gnosticism which followed Thomas
also into India. In India, it was brought by Mani , the prophet
who eventually became another son of Siva over and above Ganapathy (The
Lord of Hosts). This was to be considered as a return of the original
Thomas Way of Saivism to the Jewish Abrahamic concept of God.
comparison of the Saivism theology with that of Christianity will show
the influence of Christianity from which it came into existence and
with Judaism. It did undergo changes in structure and rituals
which are sometimes difficult to compromise. However, we could
still see the monotheistic emphasis and the emphasis on Bhakthi -and
the clear Trinity concept of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
