Mitra Persian Sun Goddess of Iran with her Persian Sword

Mitra in India

Mitra and Mitraism had moved from Iran to India and the Indian Mitra (Surya) had become a major Indian Goddess. The Bi Gender nature of Mitra in Iran had portrayed Mitra as a Female Goddess yet with Masculine nature, more like a Tomboy, but in India, even though Mitra is often displayed as a Male God, yet he has a feminine nature and he looks like a Feminine Man. In original Indian arts, Mitra is displayed as a woman and a Female Featured persona. Through the years and ages, Mitra had transformed to a Bi Gender Male, yet still with Feminine looks and characteristics.

Holy Sun Goddess Chariot

Roman Mitra’s Golden Chariot has 4 horses but Indian Mitra the Sun Goddess has a Chariot with 7 horses (Persian Holy Number 7). The horses have Vedic names:

Mitraic Chariot’s 7 Horses
Gayatri, Brhati, Usnik, Jagati, Tristup, Anustup and Pankti

Arunadeva the chariot rider drives the chariot while Mitra resides at the back and controls the destination of the chariot. The Indian Mitra’s chariot is the Indian version of the original Mitraic Golden Chariot which ascended Mitra to the Heavens.

The Vedic names are due to the historical Vedic Era (Vedai Era: 2000 BC – 850 BC) when the Persians and Indians lived together. This was the era that Indian Aryans (at that time pure), were living with the Iranian Aryans, together and in harmony. The book of Veda is of this era. The Book of Veda was not written at one time, yet it was written in different centuries of this period.

Indian Mitraic Temples

Persian and Roman Mitraic Temples were mostly built underground and some even in the caves. The most famous one of them were built in centuries BC or early AD. Most of them were leveled by invading Arabo-Muslims, other invaders or destroyed by sign of times. Today, you can see the Persian Mitraic ruins underground and in the caves. Some of their ruins are under the Shiite Muslim Shrines. Persians on purpose built these shrines on top of the Mitraic Temples to keep their memory and sanctity alive. Today, you can see the ruins of Roman Mitraic Temples undergrounds of the Churches. Christians built their churches on top of the Mitraic Temples’ ruins.


Mitra Indian Sun Goddess

Unlike Roman and Persian Mitraic Temples, the Indian Mitraic Temples were built mostly between 7th to 13th Century AD. These are modern Sun Temples which were built during the medieval era and colonial era. This is the reason that some of them are still standing and some of them are restored and usable for Mitraists to pilgrimage and worship. This is also the reason that there are great numbers of active Mitraists presently residing in India. In addition, have in mind that Hinduism, same as other civilized religions and cultures, did not destroy, banned or forget about Mitraism, yet on the contrary, Hinduism added Mitraism to its doctrine, dissolved Mitraism into Hinduism and even added Mitra as one of Hindu Gods. Hinduism and Hindus respect Mitra and Mitraism. Hindu Indians unlike Arabo-Muslims, are cultural and civilized people.

Did Jesus Exist?

So, What about Jesus? Did he exist? Overwhelming evidence shows that practically the core, the events and the rituals of the Christianity has been copied from Mitraism; therefore, the question comes to mind that if Jesus ever existed? Many scholars believe that Jesus is a fictional character.

What do I Believe?

I believe that there was a revolutionary who challenged the tyranny of the Roman Empire and his name was Jesus. He was friend of the working class and the poor; he was the enemy of the establishment. He rebelled against the Romans, he got captured and executed. After his death, his so-called Disciples, Christian Saints, Scholars and Authors wrote various versions of the Bible and every few decades and centuries, these Bibles’ Versions have been revised and updated. All the Bible core, events, rituals, stories, legends, miracles, theatrics and fantastic tales have been borrowed (mildly put) or stolen (roughly put) mainly from Mitraism and somewhat from Zoroastrianism.

So, to be frank, I believe that Jesus existed, yet the real Jesus was far from being a God or Son of the God, committing fantastic miracles and acts. The real Jesus was a simple revolutionary and anti-establishment who rebelled a while, captured and executed by the Romans.

To turn Jesus to a divinity, brush him with miracles and make his story colorful, the Biblical Scholars wrote a book full of theatrics, fantastic shows, amazing tales and out of this world events, copy/pasted from the Mitraic Mysteries.

Christmas Season Truth

Christmas Season is amazing but during the Season, remind yourselves to thank Persians for Mitra and Mitraism! In addition, cherish the Persian Culture, the Mother Culture of the globe which played a big role in creating not just the Eastern Culture or the Western Culture but the World Culture.

Persian Culture is the Mother Culture of the Global Civilization

Earlier, I referred to the Roman Empire as “Tyranny”. While Rome was occupied with massacre of Christians, slavery, central dictatorship, global expansion, extinction of animals, and barbaric gladiator fights, Persians were a Federal Empire with no slavery who created the first charter of the Human Rights in the world!

Even though the Western Historians preach to you that the Western Culture was created by Romans and Greeks, have in mind that core of the global culture came from the Persian Empire.

When Persians ruled the world, Greeks were a bunch of city states which spent their time fighting among each other, philosophizing and homosexualizing! Rome did not even exist and Western Europeans lived in the trees or caves! Later on, even when Rome existed, still half the world was under the Persian rule.

Almost everything great in the western or eastern civilization and Indo-European cultures, roots back to the Persians. Everything from language, poetry, literature, music, art, science, philosophy, religion, architecture, civilization, all the way to the modern chemistry, medicine, astronomy and math.

Golden Age of Greece, Rome, Arab Caliphate, Mongol Empire, and Western Empires made possible by the Persian gifts of civilization.

Epilogue

After reading this research, it will be all clear to you of how primarily Christianity and then Islam copy/pasted much of their holy books from the ancient Persian philosophies of Mitraism, Vedaism and Zoroastrianism!

Truth maybe viewed by different perceptions and each may comprehend the Truth according to their information, glance and perception; however, the Truth unlike the Time is not relative (Einstein Theory of Relativity). Each to their own, people have different perspectives of the Truth. This is due to the fact that the Truth is shining on some slightly, on some partly, on some almost clearly and on some in full light. There is different façade of the Truth in parallel realities and in parallel minds; however, there is only one Truth.

Truth is often hidden from the public via Organized Religion, Social Institutions, Educational Systems, Deep State, Media, Social Media, Tech Giants, Search Engines, and Major Publications which are all in cahoots with one another and together in combination, they are the Establishment.

To view the Real Truth, you must step out of your comfort zone, spend some effort and dig deeper to seek, search and self-educate yourselves because your Christian, Islamic or Liberal Educational Systems, Books and Teachers will not!

Parsi People of India are Noble Persians who fled the Persian Empire from the Arabo-Muslims Invasion Occupation, so they could remain to their Holy Zoroastrian Persian Faith.

The Machine well programmed by the Establishment is actively brainwashing you via bombarding you 24/7 with direct or subliminal propaganda.

I am only a vessel, a spokesperson and a preacher of Truth. Despite the Tyranny of the Establishment hiding the Truth under the Dark Shroud of Ignorance, I do my best to mass inform and I am able to tear a small piece of the Dark Shroud to unveil the Sunny Truth to All. I do my part to show you the path to salvation by providing for you, the tools of Self-Education, Mass Information, Recognition and Free Thinking; yet, I cannot save you. The only element which can save you by unveiling the shroud and seeing the Sun, is you. Only you can save yourself and set yourself free.

Save yourself now because tomorrow is too late. Avoid becoming yet another part of the Machine. Avoid becoming yet another statistic, another Sheep in the herd of Sheeple guided by the Establishment. World is full of Sheeple coexisting under the Dark Shroud. Tear down the Shroud, Break Free and See the Sun because life is too short to live it in the ignorance and in the dark.
