4. Justifying their name NAGAS (Sanskrit name for snake) Snake Symbol is found every wherein Naga buildings.

7.Patchouli is a game played by both Mayas and Indians
8.Tamil word catamaran is used in Mexico, where Mayas flourished for centuries.
9. Migration Route: Sri Lanka-South East Asia—Central America—South America was the Nga migratory route. All these places are called Naka Loka (Nagaland) in Tamil and Sanskrit literature.
Indus river port Patala was used for travel to the countries down below Indian peninsula and so they were called Patala Loka.
10. Nagas are mentioned in Vedas ( Pancavimsa Brahmana–iv.9,4 ) and they are an ancient race
11. Nagas in Nala Damayanthi story in Mahabharata and Sangam Tamil literature mention special type of clothes made by the Nagas.
12. Over twenty Naga poets composed Tamil poems which were in the Tamil Sangam anthology.
13. Sri Lanka Nagas and SE Asia Nagas freely mingled with Non Naga races. Agastya Rishi married a Naga princes by name Yasomati in South East Asia. Rig Vedic Agastya was different who married Lopamudra, a princess of Vidharba.( Vedic civilization spread far south beyond Vidharba during Rig Vedic days. This explodes the Westerner’s myth of Aryan-Dravidian divisions).
14.Mahabharata period Nagas married their women to Arjuna (Ulupi and Chitrangatha) One of them is a Tamil also known as Miss Alli Rani.
15. Lord Krishna was Anti Naga and Indra was Pro Naga, according to Hindu scriptures.

21. Paramapatha Sopana Patam/picture is a Snake and Ladder game played by Tamils and Telugus, where in all the Naga leader pictures are drawn.
22.Ophir—Oviyar— Chitra—Painter– is another name of Nagas. Probably they wore Tattoos of snakes on their bodies. Ophites (snake worshippers) is mentioned in Greek literature. Hippolytus and Clement of Alexandria mention this sect.
Sarpa Rakja (Rani) is mentioned in Pancha Vimsa Brahmana. Aligi and Viligi are mentioned in Atharva Veda. Aligi and Viligi are found in Sumerian clay tablets. They may be Nagas/Mayas. Probably Krishna devotees wanted to ridicule them by depicting them as snakes with their names written. When one reaches a snake square by rolling the dices, the player gets negative points and go to the bottom of the board.
23. American born Swami B. V. Tripurari asks, “What mysterious psychological law would have caused Asians, and Americans to both use the umbrella as a sign of royalty, to invent the same games, imagine similar cosmologies, and attribute the same colours to the different directions?”
Hindus and Mayas use umbrella as a royal symbol which is mentioned in Sangam Tamil literature and Sanskrit literature in thousands of places.
Hindus, Jains, Buddhists attribute four different colours to East, South, West and North. Mayas follow it.Maya colours :East-red, South- yellow, West- black, North- white. It is slightly different from Buddhists and Hindus. Shiva’s five faces are attributed with colours. Buddhists colours for directions was even mentioned by a Muslim traveller like Albiruni. Mahabharata attributes four colours for four Yugas (white,yellow,red and black).

There is one more place with the same name in the Himalayas/Nepal, Jaina Island, Mani, Copan= Sopana,Cholula=Chola,Aryballus= Arya Bala, Chetumal=Ketumala Dwipa=Guatemala,Aztec=Astika (Rishi who saved Nagas). Loads of Sanskrit and Tamil names can be derived by a patient researcher. We can justify it by observing waves of migrations. Tula, Yacatehctli (Yaga Deva Thali) Yaxchilan (Yaksha Seelan) also sound like Sanskrit names.
24. Over seventeen Egyptian kings who lived 3500 years ago had the same title Ramses.It may be Rama Seshan (Vishnu) or Ramesan (Shiva). Egyptian pharaohs Ramses heads are decorated with snake like Lord Shiva’s head. Vishnu had it (snake Adi Seshan) as his bed.
25. Swastika, elephant, lotus: Hindu motifs lotus, Swastika and elephant are found in Maya sculptures. Americas have not got elephants. Millions of years ago mammoths only roamed American north.

Mayan City Yaxchilan (Yaksha-Sila), in Mexico – Indian Connection

Yaxchilan LintelMayan City Yaxchilan is an ancient city located on the bank of the Usumacinta River in Chipas, Mexico.
Epigraphers think that the ancient name for the city was probably the same as that of its’ realm, Pa’ Chan, meaning “Cleft (or broken) Sky“.
The lintels of Yaxchilan Temples are decorated with carvings that can be connected to carvings ofYakshas in India.
In Sanskrit PaShan (पाषण) also means stone and this could be distorted as Pa’Chan.
In Ancient India, Yakshas(यक्ष) are a class of benevolent spirits or super-natural guards who are the custodians of treasures that are hidden in the earth and in the roots of trees.
Kubera (lord of wealth) was leader of Yakshas, who left Lanka to his cousin brother Raavan and migrated to other place.
Maya, who built mystical and phenomenal structures for Yakshas and Asuras was also a Yaksha and we can related him as origin of Mayan civilization, that thrived in mexico and south america.

Sila (शिला) means stone or stone-sculpture or stone plate in sanskrit.
Yaksha-Sila (यक्षशिला) are the Yaksha’s stone-lintels in Mexico and thus the name Yaxchilan (distorted version of Yaksha-Sila).
Yakshas are mentioned in Hindu, Buddhist and Jain traditions.
In Indian art, male yakṣhas are portrayed either as fearsome warriors or as portly, stout and dwarf-like. Female yakṣhas, known as yakṣhiṇīs, are portrayed as beautiful young women with happy round faces and full breasts and hips.

Yakshas in Buddhism

Yakshas (Thai: ยักษ์, Yak) are an important element in Thai temple art and architecture, as they are the guardians of all Buddhist temple gates.
Yakshas and their female counterparts are common in the Buddhist literature of Thailand. As ogres, giants and ogresses yakshas are popular as well in Thai folklore.

Yakshas in Jainism

Jains mainly worship idols of Arihants and Tirthankaras, who have conquered the inner passions and attained God-consciousness status. Some Jains also believe that Yaksha and Yakshini look after the well-being of Tirthankaras. Usually, they are found in pair around the idols of Jinas as male (yaksha) and female (yakshini) guardian deities. Yaksha is generally on the right-hand side of the Jina idol and Yakshini on the left-hand side. In earlier periods, they were regarded mainly as devotees of Jina, and have supernatural powers. They are also wandering through the cycles of births and deaths just like the worldly souls, but have supernatural powers. Over time, people started worshiping these deities as well.
Some Yaksa were and are known for bestowing fertility and wealth upon their devotes. Therefore, they had become very popular and their idols had been placed in Jain temples and Jains worship them. Jains offer them different things in favor of boons for children, wealth or freedom from fears, illness or disease.
Since ancient times, Yaksha-Gaana (Song of the Yakshas), the musical presentation of the Yaksha folklore, which is equivalent to the popularity of the Opera in the West, famous in India.
Mahabharata mentions an episode where one Yaksha captures 4 brothers of Yudhishtira and asks Yaksha-Prasnas (Yaksha’s questions). Yudhishtira answers all of them to prove his worth as future king and gets is brothers released.
