Tushars - Tocharians - Xinjiang -

Compare this with Devanagri Sanskrit Script. The differences and similarity are like comparing Bengali, Punjabi, Marathi and Gujrati Scripts.

Then check Devnagari-like Script under Hammurabi posting.

See other articles at Wikipedia (and then search for Amu Dariya and Suryia Daryia Posting - Hammurabi - The Sun-Moon King of Babylonia).

It is mentioned that it was part of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladak kingdom at one time.

Common Brahmi, Devanagri and Tocharian Alphabets

Tusharas or Tocharians are Indo European people found settled in ancient times in current Xinjiang NW Autonomous part of China, located in Tarim_basin, SW of Mongolia and North of Tibet.

Historians have found mummies of IE origin in this place but now the population looks Mongoloids, as Mongols, Huns, and Kushans ruled over this place. Kushans who ruled India, were supposedly related to Tocharians.

Interestingly, in my reading on Sur(y)a and A-Sur(y)a Split, the book referenced mentions that the Asur(y)as instead of chanting AUM of Hindus, would chant HUN! We have talked about the sound "A" becoming "H", which is nothing but aspirated "A", or "H" is soft un-aspirated "A". And Nasal M sometimes get replaced with Nasal N. So we can see how AUM can become HUN. Also Shaivism and Tantra came from A-sur(y)as as per the book referenced in the posting, and we all know that Tantra and Shaivism had a strong presence in Kashmir, Tibet and Mongolia, where Hindu Idols have been found. So is it possible that the Huns got their name from this background? It was a very common practice for Christian Roman Empire to call the Proto Indo Europeans as Pagans and Barbarians, before they were conquered and converted. That is why you see this epithet given to Atilla, Huns and Germans!

Anyway, coming to the main topic, the Devanagari Alphabet sounds are same as Tachurian, and the script is based on Brahmi and looks somewhat closer to Tibetan, Nepalase and Bengali scripts in some letters! We can now see why the relic remains of animal sacrifice in worships, which is from the "Tamas" or "Black" version of Tantra, is to be seen in Tibet, Nepal, Assam and Bengal.

The above picture shows Tachurian Vowels, just Devanagri Vowels.

The above picture shows Constants, just like Devanagri Constants Sounds.

The above picture shows, combination of constants and vowels to make differnt syllables.

Pictures picked up from Omniglot Tocharian Site. Please visit the site for more information on different scripts.

Common Brahmi And Phoenician Script

Decide for yourself how the two scripts are very close. Now what were Vedic Gods doing in the treaty between the Hittites and the Mitanni ? Please read on the article below. Phoenicia was part of northen Canaan, and todays coast of modern of Syria and Lebanon. Hittites were in todays western Antolia, which is part of modern Turkey. And Mittinnis were part of the south eastern part of Antolia.

Adapted from:

Some theonyms, proper names and other terminology of the Mitanni exhibit an Indo-Aryan superstrate, suggesting that an Indo-Aryan elite imposed itself over the Hurrian population in the course of the Indo-Aryan expansion.

In a treaty between the Hittites and the Mitanni (between Suppiluliuma and Matiwaza, ca. 1380 BC), the deities Mitra, Varuna, Indra, and Nasatya (Ashvins) are invoked. Kikkuli's horse training text includes technical terms such as aika (eka, one), tera (tri, three), panza (pancha, five), satta (sapta, seven), na (nava, nine), vartana (vartana, round). The numeral aika "one" is of particular importance because it places the superstrate in the vicinity of Indo-Aryan proper as opposed to Indo-Iranian in general.

Another text has babru (babhru, brown), parita (palita, grey), and pinkara (pingala, red). Their chief festival was the celebration of the solstice (vishuva) which was common in most cultures in the ancient world. The Mitanni warriors were called marya, the term for warrior in Sanskrit as well.

Sanskritic interpretations of Mitanni royal names render Shuttarna as Sutarna ("good sun"), Baratarna as Paratarna ("great sun"), Parsatatar as Parashukshatra ("ruler with axe"), Saustatar as Saukshatra ("son of Sukshatra, the good ruler"), Artatama as "most righteous", Tushratta as Dasharatha ("having ten chariots"?), and, finally, Mattivaza as Mativaja ("whose wealth is prayer"). Some scholars believe that not only the kings had Indo-Aryan names; a large number of other names resembling Sanskrit have been unearthed in records from the area.

Archaeologists have attested a striking parallel in the spread to Syria of a distinct pottery type associated with what they call the Kura-Araxes culture, however the dates they usually assign for this are somewhat earlier than the Mitanni are thought to have first arrived.
