When we lived Fomhoires, Rakshasas, vievichi, nagas and other such things? How many are there types? Whether the many-headed and many-armed Rakshasas, nayrrity, Hecatonchires and giant werewolves Fomhoires, Yakshas, pishachi, bhutams and other creatures to the snake-people, and if so, why it has changed their appearance? Or whether they belonged to the giant intelligent insects and mammals?
Vievichi and Nagas live before the Rakshasa and Fomorian
Try to answer on this page to the last question first. In Irish, Slavic and Indian legends contain hidden information that is naked and vievichi lived before Fomorian and Rakshasas. During the most recent power vievichey and Nagas have been destroyed, and their surviving representatives of the "gone underground."
In the Slavic tradition Svarogova cycle says that the tribe of the Black Snake (or serpent vievichey) was defeated in the battle for Earth with light gods led by Svarog or Semargl, son of Svarog. As a result of this battle (which killed countless snakes, and "the whole earth [was] mixed with blood, a drop of blood on each stone") was destroyed by the first world, where there were no people. This is — an extremely important point, because the Rakshasas and Fomhoires already fought with people. And they, according to the Slavic tradition, before the first crash was not.
In "Adiparve" is episode Nagas and other snakes destroys Dzhanamedzhayya king. According to this ancient document, "the fire caught many thousands, millions, tens of millions of snakes." Although legend has it that the Pandavas were killed snakes, which are considered the ancestors of the people, it confirms rather than refutes the power of the Nagas in the earlier period than the Rakshasas. First, the king was Dzhanamedzhayya distant ancestor of the Pandavas, who met and fought with the Rakshasa. Secondly, refer to the Pandava people can be quite relative. Third, in an episode of the destruction of snakes Rakshasas are not mentioned at all. While this does not mean that their was not there.
Burning of snakes ("Mahabharata") similar to the revised (people?) Mapping a terrible accident, resulting in the death of the old world. The proximity of this episode to the Slavic tradition of the death of the first world is more than obvious.
Confirmation of the simultaneous existence of the Nagas and also can serve vievichey similarity Thousand Slavic Black Snake or Chernobog with the leader of the Nagas, the serpent Sesa Thousand and his army with the many-headed serpent Naga army.
Story about the death of a powerful civilization snake-people from a catastrophe common and in the traditions of many other nations. For example, it tells the story of an Egyptian papyrus time XII-XIII dynasty of pharaohs (XX-XVII centuries. BC. E.) "Tales of the shipwrecked": cast ashore on some island Egyptians met him at a giant serpent in the golden scales with human head . Snakes called himself lord of the dead and the country of Punt sailor told the sad story of how the "star fell from the sky" and destroyed his country, destroyed the entire population consisting of kites.
It is curious that in the stories of three different people living in different parts of the world, given the same scenario has killed former world catastrophe. It was destroyed by fire. Here we should mention the ancient Aztec written sources "Code Vatikanus", "Rios Code", "Code-Telleriano Remensis", "Code Chimalpopoca" and others, and the Mayan epic "Popol Vuh," according to which the fire destroyed the second, third or fourth generations.
So, Slavic, Indian, Egyptian, American, and other traditions state that the flowering of civilization vievichey, Nagas and other demons, serpents in the world fell to very distant from us the time — so far, that the narrator could not store the actual form of these creatures. According to some traditions, while the world was not yet the gods. They appeared then — you guessed it, in order to reclaim the planet from the snake-men. And, most of all, they managed to do this at the cost of the death of most of the former inhabitants of the Earth, which was very, very much: tens — hundreds of millions, and perhaps even more.
Serpent people — the progenitors of "humanity." Global civilization serpent people — Dragons
Snake people were spread across the world. A. Komogortsev in "Malachite Box of Pandora" introduces us to the Egyptian "The Legend of the annihilation of mankind." By order of the sun god Ra god Geb the earth, the father of all snakes, declares war on the snakes inhabiting in his possession, and the god Nun strictly observes all the snakes that live on land and in water, and writes a decree strictly forbidding anyone to bite them . Snake bite in Egypt was considered fatal not only for people but also for the gods. True, the gods could protect against poison word power "Heck."
In Chinese legends, the first human ancestors — serpentine (with human heads) brother and sister Fuxi and Nuwa, has a truly fantastic abilities. Nuwa, for example, could one day transform more than 70 things. And Fuxi taught people hunting, fishing, and with farming. According to legend, and save the images in his head grew Fusi small horns.
One of the "Five Sacred Emperors" Yu could transform into a dragon, and was considered half-dragon. According to Chinese legend, he helped people to subdue the water raged within twenty days of the flood — to build dams and diversion canals, drain the river and save the people themselves. And helps him in the other dragons. After the flood, the celestial ruler Shun Yuyu lost the right to be emperor of China, and this marked the analogy between imperial (royal) dynasties in China, India and Russia.
In ancient China, dragons are generally perceived by the patron deity of the world and perceived, both in India and Indochina, the adepts (initiation), yogis and nardzholami (saints), that is, beings endowed with infinite wisdom and abilities. Worshiped at all times, but especially after the Buddhist reformer dobyvshy the nagas Sutra "Prajnaparamita", the fourteenth Buddhist patriarch Nagarjuna visited China (about II.).
In the South, Central and North America, as the snake has long enjoyed special honor. In some myths from the collection of ancient religious texts Mayan "Chilam Balam" reported that the first inhabitants of Yucatan were the "Serpent People." They came by boat from the east, led by Itsamanoy, "Serpent of the East" — a great physician who can heal the imposition of hands and raise the dead. Perhaps that is why the Maya called their country the "Kingdom of the Great Serpent."
Quechua Indians in Peru claimed that their ancestors came from the lost land snakes were covered with hair. Ancestors of the Indians muiskov living in Colombia were also considered snakes, and they called themselves snakes.
Nagalizm and vuduizm — the memory of civilization Nagas
Some tribes of Mexican Indians chief sorcerer or witch doctor held the title of "revolver". Indians of South, Central and North America from Tierra del Fuego to Alaska use the word "hurricane", meaning head, teacher, and snakes.
To this day in Cuba and Haiti, and there nagalizm vuduizm whose essence — in the "connection" with the animals, and the resurrection of the dead — in the memory of how it was done once naked. In Mexico, the main sorcerers and healers to this day is called "nargalami" — as well as thousands of years ago called the Chaldean and Assyrian Heads High Priests and Mages.
In different parts of the Earth (India, Indochina, China, Sumeria, Egypt, Africa, America, Russia, etc.) found images snake-people with a human head and the body of a snake — and vice versa. Legends about pervozmeyah, snake-men, demons, snakes are found in almost all living people on earth. Almost universally, they indicate that it was a strong, powerful, poisonous, but at the same time, extremely intelligent and wise creation, endowed with diverse and truly fantastic abilities.
Without exception, all the legends, the snake-men to the most ancient representatives of the genus "human." In legend states that their mother was the earth itself, and they, too, were the gods of the earth. Almost universally, states that all life snake-people was somehow connected with the land. Nagy and vievichi as, perhaps, their distant descendants — Fomhoires, were skilled farmers. They plowed the land and sowed grain (or what at the time was a replacement) and bred animals (most likely the same from the world of reptiles).
