The Trident Of Shiva





In the Egyptian temples, then, the flagstaffs symbolized the impaling poles that were associat-
ed with the Pillars of Hercules, whereas the loose pennants that hung down from them stood
for the flayed skins of the unfortunate victims caught trespassing the forbidden gateway to
Paradise. The same ritual function was also served by the twin obelisks which, apparently,
originally served as impaling poles, to judge from their name (obeliskos, in Greek, means
"skewer").5

The pylons of the Egyptian temples suggest yet another Atlantean feature of great importance.
It concerns Trikuta, the Triple Mountain upon which Lanka, the true archetype of Atlantis, was originally built. The central peak of Trikuta was Mt. Atlas or, indeed, the Central Pillar of Heaven
that was identified to Shiva's linga.

When Atlas, the Pillar of Heaven collapsed, it became the huge submarine caldera of the Krakatoa volcano which nowadays forms the Strait of Sunda, separating Java from Sumatra. The two
remaining peaks are, in Hindu myths, the Sumeru and the Kumeru, that is, the two Merus, one
in the north, the other in the south. In Egyptian myths, these two peaks are known as the
Mountain of Manu or, yet, the Mountain of the Orient and the one of the Occident. These
names are clearly taken from Hindu traditions, for even their names are the same as in India.

These twin mountains are variously allegorized. But in geographical reality, they correspond to
the two peaks that flank the Strait of Sunda, named respectively the Kalianda and the Gunnung Karang. This Triple Mountain was precisely the one the ancients equated with the Trident of Shiva (Trikuta) and, later, with the one of Poseidon, his Greek counterpart. Indeed, this triple mountain
is the one that the Argonautica and the Odyssey called by the name of Thrinacia (thrinax = "trident"), and which was later exoterically identified with Sicily, allegedly because of its triangular shape.

The shape of the pylons of the Egyptian temples roughly recall the one of certain churches and cathedrals such as Notre Dame and Reims, which have two blunted towers flanking the central gateway, which is far lower than the other two side towers. Clearly, the same conception guided
the hands that built those cathedrals and the temples of Egypt.

In other words, the idea of Atlantis and its triple mountain (Trikuta) and collapsed central peak apparently lay at the root of the ancient Mystery Religions that eventually became the religions
of Egypt and of Christianity, not to mention others that are not being discussed here.

The pylons of the Egyptian temples are nearly verbatim replicas of the so-called "Mountain of
Sunrise" or its dual, the "Mountain of Sunset" (or of the West), which are endlessly portrayed in Egyptian iconographies and in myths as well. This symbolism is indeed metaphoric, and is taken
from India, where Mt. Meru (really the Sumeru and the Kumeru) are called by precisely these two epithets.

What is in reality allegorized by the rising sun shining between the two peaks of the Holy Mountain
is the explosion of its central peak (Mt. Atlas), bursting "with the light of a thousand suns" and disappearing under the seas, where it becomes the Primordial Abyss (Nun), whence the Sun originally rose, during Creation.

By the way, in Egypt the sun rises and sets in the Sahara desert, rather than from the sea or even from among the mountains. So, the image of the sun rising and setting in the waters of the sea (the Nun) or from the hills of a foreign country can only have originated elsewhere. And where is that?
The only place in the ancient world that fits the description are India and Indonesia, as can be seen
in a map of the region. So, once more we see that both in the geographical reality as well as in the mythical image which equates the sun rising with a giant volcanism of an island over the seas can
only have come from there, for all other places are irremediably wrong.
