"In an historical examination of the idea that the beliefs and practices of Druids and Brahmins were and are in some way related, this paper examines the literature of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries which sought to establish such connections."
"The starting-point of Maurice´s discussion was the statement ´that the celebrated order of Druids ... were the immediate descendants of a tribe of Brahmins´ (Maurice 1812: 3-4)."
"What followed was a complex and convoluted account of the ancient world and the migration of its peoples predicated upon the biblical events of the Great Flood and the destruction of the Tower of Babel (Maurice 1812: 2ff.)"
Back to the pre-Flood era. Atala - atalan - atalan-ti - atalantis. Sanskrit for Hell (bottomless)
"The Brahmin religion was traced even further back than settlement in India (Maurice 1812: 196-7). However, in India this religion took on a new form when the laws that had been introduced to the sub-continent were ´enlarged, purified and accommodated´ to the changed conditions (Maurice 1812: 197)."
The Aryan Invasions. The Aryans as the Fallen Ones who survived the destruction. Coming from Atala - hell.
"Yet this Brahmin religion was composed of a number of different groups, affiliated with ´Brahma, Veeshnu, Seeva and Buddha´ (Maurice 1812: 197). <12> According to Maurice, it was those Brahmin worshippers ´of the last-mentioned holy personage´ located in Tibet, for him the northernmost area of India, who were responsible for bringing the Brahmin religion, with which he equated Druidry, to Britain (Maurice 1812: 197)."
Himalayas no doubt.
"These Brahmins, also said by him to be ´versed in the sacred and civil institutes of Brahma´ (Maurice 1812: 15-16), were supposed to have migrated throughout Asia, mixed with Celtic peoples and then migrated into Europe until eventually they reached Britain in the far West (Maurice 1812: 197). So it was that ´the Druid, that is, Brahmin system of superstition [was founded] in ancient Britain´ (Maurice 1812: 197)."
Truly incredible. Connect the dots people.
And the current head of the Church of England, the Archbishop of Canterbury, is an ordained Druid, or really a Brahim?
Archbishop of Canterbury becomes a Druid
