The Egyptian Goddess, Found In India
Editorials News | Nov-04-2019
One of the mysterious, great untold adventure stories of late antiques is the journey to the East, from Egypt’s Red Sea ports, across the open ocean for 40 days and 40 nights, to the fabulous entrecote of Musiris, on India’s southwestern or Malabar Coast, in what is now modern state of Kerala. This was a great deed of an exploration, a technological frisk forward commensurate to the discovery of the Americas or Francis Drake’s circumference of the globe.
This maritime trade reached a peak during the time of Jesus, constrain the construction of a small Greco-Roman merchant colony to manage the expanded trade between India and the Roman Empire. This colony was adequately large to condone the building of a Roman temple, which is clearly shown on ancient maps. The precise location of Musiris has formerly been one of the secrets of the classical world.
Religion is the unusual cargo of maritime trade. This area of India is very catholic. It was the port of homecoming for Christians, Jews, Muslims and other Near Eastern peoples, who still have a momentous presence in India. The Egyptian goddess Isis is famously the patroness of the sea, the protector of mariners. The Greek captains of the Roman trade schooner assuredly worshiped her.
Acknowledge of the goddess Isis in Indian culture is the united work of divers’ renowned scholars. At the beginning it was the description of Pattini as a concealed goddess, the only one in Hindu mythology that led scholars such as Dr Richard Fynes to guesstimate a Near Eastern connection. Actually Isis was not veiled in every place most of her history but she was when her cult was conveyed to India.
The late Professor Kamil Zvelebil also exposed that much about the maritime trade between the ancient Near East and South India. My research for Isis, Goddess of Egypt & India, further exposed the relationship between the classical mystery cult and the mythology of the Buddhist/Jaina goddess Pattini.
