The following is almost verbatim speech Don skiff, sent to negotiate with Alexander the Great after he seized Marakanda and India.
That is, in the midst of preparing a new campaign, which was interrupted by death of the great conqueror — the official version it was in Babylon after the Indian campaign!
In his "Report", found Quintus Curtius 'in the old writers' GREAT outlined geography, Goals and hiking the Macedonian conqueror, crossed yet his army across the river, but then departed in Sakiyu:
"As we all made the crossing, then came after a number of Scythian twenty Scythians … these should not rough and arguments were converted as other barbarians. Some of them, as they say, and the sciences, how long can the people, always armed, trained … We found in the older writers, that the eldest of them said this:
If the gods were pleased to age your majesty still was the greed of your soul, Tobe you could not fit the universe. With one hand you would dosyazal to east to west … Other … So do you want more than a hug can. From Europe to Asia are following you, from Asia transition in Europe.
Finally you subdue the whole human race, from the forest to the snow, rivers and wild beasts fight will … Do you not know that the great trees grow long, and in one hour uprooted? Mad, who is looking at the fruits of their height does not reason. See that you covet to ascend to the top … do not fall. Sometimes, small birds and a lion goes into the food, and iron rust eats. There is nothing good, nothing happened woes and a small. What are we to you need? We are your ground never touched, Shall we live in dense forests are not allowed not to know who you are and where you came from?
We both can not serve anyone, and do not want to own. Know that our Scythian people over gifts given, yokes, plows, arrows, and a bowl that we eat priyatelmi against enemies. Green fruit, labor volovpoluchennymi share with … friends, poured a cup of wine with a sacrifice to the gods, the enemies from a distance with arrows and spears hit up close. Thus we won sirskogo king, and after the Persian and Midskago and cleared his way to Egypt itself, and you, who are going to destroy the robbers robber himself all the countries in which you are.
You Lydia, Syria, Persia and Bactria took in your possession. From there followed in India, and now on our cattle, tasty and predatory stretching your arms. What do you want the wealth that is in you excited greed? You're the first person that comes from a smooth fullness, so the more you have, the stronger dostupaesh what we do not have. Or do you not come to mind, how much did you lose time in conquering Baktrianskogo ownership?
In the meantime, while you drive them into citizenship, Sogdiana revolt began: the war of pobedrozhdaetsya you. Will you let more and more of all, however outlandish ruler anyone unbearable. Please go only for Don know how large enough Scythian steppes: yet we did not ever comprehend, our misery will be easier than your army prey Shreds burdened nations. Moreover when you think that we are drawn away from you, you will see us in the middle of your camp … Scythians say Happiness without legs, only the hands and wings is: although when someone arms and hands down, but the wings to seize is not given.

Finally if you are a god, then you should repair the mortal deeds, not steal their own property; bude same person, we will never forget his humanity. Crazy thing to think about, leads to oblivion itself. That you do not irritate the war, those of true friendship can … enjoy reading it a vanquished friends feared. Between master and slave is no friendship …
Know that the Scythians did not curse unions approved but is keeping the oath of allegiance. Greek caution that there are those who write and contracts gods vow, and we accept the oath of allegiance to the most storage. People who do not honor those gods and cheat. No need of you friend, in which benevolence sumnevatsya can. In other matters we will be you and Preserver of Asia and Europe. Bactri shares from us only the Don River, the Don we roaming until Thrace, which, as they say, with the border of Macedonia, now he argue, friends whether we Barrier both your possessions, or want to have enemies? "
That's it — and we were told that on the proposal of the Scythians, Europe — are those lands that lay to the west of the modern Uzbekistan! And on this basis hiking Cyrus the Great moved to Massagetae led by legendary Tamaris. Maybe she really was called Siromahoy?
Now is a good time to recall the ancient Indian legends that tell of the seven great sages — the rishis (rsi, Skt. Rshi — seer, sage) or Sapta-Rishis (Sanskrit — saptaRShi «seven sages", by the way, Huttese numeral "seven" is very similar shape — "Sipta") — the sons of the god Brahma, born out of his mind, and that opened the Vedic hymns.
Many thousands of years ago, they lived in the Kullu valley, and has since worn epithet 'divine', 'fathers' and mentioned along with the gods. Seven is the divine creator of the universe and the father of all the living. The earliest list of the seven rishis given in Jaimini Brahman (2.218-221): Vasishtha (Vyas, Vasya) Bharadwaja, Jamadagni, Atri, Vishwamitra, Agastya and poet Gotama (Gautama). In Brihadaranyaka Upanishad (2.2.6) is replaced by Agastya Atri. In later Gopatha Brahman (1.2.8) says nothing of eight rishis: Vasishta, Bharadwaja, Jamadagni, Gautama, Atri, Vishwamitra, Gunga, Agastya and Kasyapa. According to Vishnu Purana, their names sound a bit different: Crato, pools Pulastya, Atri, Angiras, Vasishtha and Bhrigu.
Encyclopedia Britannica (in articles 'Prajapati' and 'rsi') says ten seers, adding to the list of the divine lawgiver Manu and Narada (Narada), whose life story is very similar to the legendary Orpheus. The last name of the Rishi is also found in ancient drama Kalidasa 'Vikramorvashi'.
By the very incarnations of the seven ancient rishis belongs to their identification with the seven stars of the Big Dipper, although according to Hindu tradition, the spiritual center of the ancient name of the Primordial Tradition was "Varaha", ie "Earth Pig".
Image became a symbol of the boar Brahmins, but there is a legend that the rishis (Sanskrit rsi = «wise man", although most likely not properly "rsi" and "dew" or "Roshi" — Zen Buddhist teacher to this day is called "Ros ") before they were exactly the same time the bears and the warrior caste — Kshatriya also symbolized Bear.
Their number (seven) usually placed in connection with a number of different categories of priests mentioned in the Vedic texts. Legends tell of Arjuna and Rishi Vias, who collected the famous Indian epic 'Mahabharata' and wrote the last of the Vedas.
In later times in a rebellion against the Kshatriyas Brahmins change the name of a continent — from the "land Cabana", he became the "Earth Bear", literally "Arctic." In particular, the geographer of Yakutia, Arctic mountain Kaf once called Albora or Elbrus.
So Vedic and Slavic traditions very, very close! In addition, according to Tibetan belief in Tibet is the land of Hindustan, whose inhabitants worshiped for ancient peoples who reported most of Asia customs, science and art … half a century after Christ. It is clearly seen that even the names of some of the seven sages (Saptarishi) consonant with Russian names and words — John, Three!
Another one of them — or Agastya Agastya mentioned in the Volga Berendeyevskoye (bayandurskih) legends which tell of the famous 'Battle of Flowers'. According to them, this is where the descendant of Veles magician Asgast-Agastya, Belovodye ruler and prince of the sacred city of the land acb-town, known in Scandinavian tradition as a city of the gods — Asgard met his sweetheart Duliyu. Legends tell of his son Yar and famous descendant — Buse Beloyarov of which were mentioned in the epic, as a man who gave the name 'Beloyarovu millet' — corn. Interesting information about the legends tell Yarily, returning then the reader into the invisible city of Kitezh. Legends 'Svyatoyarova circle'.
About Aryan invasion of India, by the name of Saks survived several references to 'Brahmanical literature. " After all, the Indians even created two eras — Vikramaditya (from 57 BC) and Salivahany (from 78 years after Christ). Establishing first attributed king 'udzheynskomu' Vikramaditya Sakari ('enemy of Saks'). Salivahana also known as the 'Saka era' (sakabda).
In Garivanse and Vishnu Purana about these events is reported that in conjunction with the Saka Yavana, Cambodia, Parada, Paglavy, Gayagaya-ephtalites Taladzhanga and robbed Indian rajah Bagu all his possessions. However, his son Sagar, receiving from Orva-rishis 'ogneyastram' — firearms attacked Saka with their allies and should be destroyed, but they had recourse to the intercession of Vasishta, who persuaded Sagar (probably a relation?) To pardon them.
Terms of the king's son to them, become since "Mlechas" — strangers were: divestment Kshatriyas weaning fire sacrifices and study the Vedas.
Yavana and Cambodia had to shave his head in humiliation, Saka — its half Paglava — grow a beard, and the parade — not cut their hair.
Grigoriev after other researchers suggested that the people of India Rajput (rajpoot) and Jats were these "repressed" Kshatriyas, the Punjabis, Jats, yueti (Yuezhi?) And gudzhary (Gujjars) are descendants of Saka-geth, not for nothing after all gantvarov preserved Legends of the arrival of their ancestors from the north.
As for the Kshatriyas, Rajputs, whose name is a Sanskrit phrase 'Raja putra', which means 'son of the king' or 'son of Raja', the collection of photographic portraits, published in the years 1868-1869 by the British Government stated in Volume III under number 169 sample 'Russian Rajput tribe (belong by caste to Rajpoot race known as the Russia clan) living on the river source Dzhemny'.

Dzhemna or Yamuna — a river in India, the source of which is located west of the source of the River. Ganges River at the foot of Dzhamantri and flows into the Ganges under the walls of the citadel of Allah-Abad, and then can not think of the current in the river edge of the Force (Silla), said Diodorus of Sicily, and the provinces of Punjab and Rathia in Rajasthan.
Population Census 1871 — 1872 years. revealed a very interesting fact, because 17 million people belonged to the ruling castes, described as "relatively pure-blood descendants of the Aryans or race, speaking in Sanskrit." That is, the Brahmins and Rajputs, standing just below the first in the hierarchy of Indian castes.
Listed in footnote sources report that the Rajputs still consider themselves the legitimate successors of the Aryan Kshatriyas and are divided into many genera or tribes, each clan or tribe is often traces its ancestry to some illustrious ancestor (for example comes from their environment was Raja Akbar ) marry only within their environment, no Rajput can not marry a woman who does not belong to the Rajputs.
From which it is clear that 'Russian Rajputs' could not appear in the North, ie areas of the White Huns or Hephthalites-kamichikov! It is known that the three main lines or Dynasty (vanshas or vamshas) Rajputs were called Suryavamsi (Raghuvamsha) — Solar Line; Chandravamsha (or Somavamsha, Induvamsha) — Moonlight Line; Agnivamsha — Fire Line. In addition, there are about 40 Rajput clans ('Khampa'), all of whose members believe that they are the descendants of a common ancestor in the male line, are the same for all the family name, but because they are prohibited within the clan mutual marriages.
It is significant that part of the Rajputs are marovaram (Marwaree) — Marwar region, which is also called the domain of Jodhpur, which is the city Jodhpur — the state capital-Rathor Rathore in Rajasthan — a rather small nationalities inhabiting more than India in Pakistan. And also, perhaps Marovarskom Kunar Valley of Afghanistan.
It is significant that on the field Marovarskoy Indian River Moon (Luni), which originates in Lake Pushkar (Pushkar) and the north-west of Narva is Dzhohpura! Ruined city of Osian or Ossian (!), 65 km from Jodhpur, has been an important religious center of the clan of Rajputs. About 'kashemirtsev' reported at the beginning of XIX century, that "dress both sexes have a craft: it is white cloth, like a Russian peasant shirt with an oblique collar, long cover-to-toe."
It is known that the residents of the states of Punjab and Kashmir, a very high percentage marker R1a1, the same with the Slavs! In view of the above at once recollected that the Slavs called Sakaliba Arab authors, and the elderly in the East — elder, which means today 'white beard', from which it can be concluded that the Sakala mean — 'bearded' or 'light' and it name associated with the Slavs they have!
