Jesus was of Tamil descent: Scholar

October 14th, 2007

Leading social scientist Dr Padmakar Vishnu Vartak, founder of Veda Vignyan Mandal of Pune, is confident that Sanskrit is the most ideal and scientific language for computers.

Speaking to this paper here on Friday, Vartak, author of many books on Vedic heritage said Sanskrit letters are written exactly how it is pronounced. However, in Roman script, spelling and pronunciation change many times.

Dr Vartak said scientists are busy developing computers which can run on pronunciation. But, it is difficult for the computers to absorb English pronunciation and the spellings as more often pronunciation change with spellings in English, he added.

The Rishis of the Veda times had enormous knowledge of every thing under the sun, said the scholar. Rishis knew about cloning thousands of years ago. A medical practitioner by profession, Vartak said the Indian mind was so much corrupted by the British that we today think that developments in science should come from the West. The western science has hypnotised our mind, he regretted.

He said Valmiki has given exact date and time of birth of Rama. The Vedas also have discussed about the ‘big bang’ theory of world’s origin. He said Shankaracharya had revealed about the gravity of the earth (Gurutwakarshan) in his ‘Prashnopasana’.

The modern science came to know of gravity only when Newton said about it in recent times, he added.

Dr Vartak said Jesus Christ’s forefathers had migrated to Jerusalem from India and they were Tamils. To support his statement he said the last words uttered by Christ at the time of certification were Tamil words.

Dr Vartak said in one of the portraits kept in Vatican City, Christ was depicted wearing dhoti. The picture of Christ also shows that he had a ‘Janiwaram,’ he said adding that Christ had a sister whose name was ‘Thamar’ which in Tamil means Lotus.

Dr Vartak said the people should take interests in preserving knowledge and heritage of India. The country has given perfect science as well as mathematics to the whole of the world, he said.

Dr Vartak is addressing in Belgaum on October 13 (Saturday) and 14 (Sunday) at Sharadotsava Mandal at 3 pm on Saturday and at 10 am at Gurudev Ranade Mandir and at 5 pm at Maratha Mandir on Sunday. [Express NewsService]

    The East conciousness was finding an answer to all the problem as a whole, inthe perspective of life and death, inbetween the sufferings and pleasures we go through in the human body. Krisna, Buddha, Mahavir, Guru Nanak,
    Osho, Krisnamoorthy and many more. In our ancient Hindu religion, it was vast, there were no clear cut answeres for mere mortals to understand. The Thavam ( Meditation) was always there. We have seen images of Lord Shiva in Meditating poses. Also dancing , another kind of meditation. But Buddha gasp the answer to suffering, which is to reach meditative state. Where there is no thinking, no time, just being alert to the moment. Mind is the culprit to all the sufferings, it is always worried, no reason needed. To get out of sufferings only way is going beyond mind. Buddha insearch of answer, he travelled to many mountains and met Hindu yogis who were meditating there, getting away from dirty Bhiramins iron grip as form of discrimination ( cast system) in the name of religion. Then Buddha started Meditating like those Yogis and one day He discovered the Meditative state by totally stop thinking under a Bodhi tree. This is how eastern consciousness has been. When we look at Jesus, he is in tune with the Eastern Philosophy. There are stories about him meditating in the bible. But Christians changed that all and miss interpreting all that what Jesus stood for.

    Western consciousness was out worldly, They were only interested being a Zorba, Never a Buddha.
    That is why western world more materialized.

    What the author of the Article claim may have been true.
    Before Hindians come from persia and changed all the Dravidans ways of life by claiming they are the main agent to the god and we have to go through them inorder to get blessing from god by serving them.
    this where they introduced the cast system in veda.
    These are the Hindians only now kiils us in Srilanka.
    Another racist motivated state.

    First we claimed the North and East as the traditional homeland of the tamils

    Now we are claiming that Jesus is a tamil

    What next?

  • 3. Prbha  |  October 15th, 2007 at 8:15 am

    Then you have the right to ask half of Vatican city to create a separate land for tamils

  • 4. ilaya seran senguttuven  |  October 15th, 2007 at 8:17 am

    If Dr Vartak subjects the various claims he makes in different fields to scientific scrutiny, he will engage greater acceptance by the global scientific and academic community. No doubt, India has made great contributions to the world of philosophy, science and different branches of the academicia. How does one get in touch with Dr Vartak?

  • 5. Thamilan  |  October 15th, 2007 at 8:38 am

    I am Tamil my self and I will tell you that Jesus was not from India or Tamil (he never was and never will be). Dr Padmakar Vishnu Vartak does not even come to close to sounding like Tamil person. He is probably one of that hardcore North Indian Hindu Extremist and any Hindu Extremist view does not reflect the view of the Tamils. He can mention what ever he wants, as long as he doesn’t have any creditable proof, he is no threat to history. I am very pleased to say that as far as my understanding of the Tamil culture and history, the Tamils have not committed to a sin of creating a religion that forces their view on others. No, Hinduism is not a Tamil religion; it was just simply forced on us by the invading north which was later embraced by the Tamil. Here are the major religions that Tamils have embraced through out the history (far as my knowledge): Hindusim, Janisim, Buddhism, Christianity and many other Tribal religions (almost similar to the Native Indians).

    Dr.Padmakar must be crazy! soes he not realize that everything icluding the genetic blueprint of human being emanated from the Sinhala Buddhist? Tamil is only a language that was copied or plagiarized from Sinhala when humans started expressing themselves via verbal communication. the purest language in the world is Sinhala and the purest racce in the world is Sinhala Buddhist and there is no argument about it! Ask JHU or JVP if you have any doubt about it. There are quite a few more source from which you can verify this is Professor Sooriyaperuma, Dr.Mervyn Silva and the likes.

    Perhaps they should get him to succeed Anton as LTTE’s new ideologue.

  • 8. EEroppe Sinhaya  |  October 15th, 2007 at 5:20 pm

    How about Hitler! was he Tamil too..?.!!! I know on of his Tamil relative in the “Vanni” jungle.

  • 9. Suresh M  |  October 15th, 2007 at 7:13 pm

    North & East is always our homeland.

    We nver claimed Jesus, Budha, or Mohamed had Tamil origin, but Fernadopulle.

  • 10. themissingsandwich  |  October 16th, 2007 at 2:28 am

    And Jesus’ heritage is important because? You know the reason most wars start is because of the debate of who owns what and who comes from where. Please don’t add to it.

    Frankly, I don’t care if Jesus, the Buddha or anyone came from India, Brazil or Timbuktoo! Their messages were of unity. That’s all that matters. And it should be enough for anyone.

  • 11. r.veera  |  October 16th, 2007 at 4:01 am

    velu p you are sinhala , dont write in tamil name. Cowards like you create fools in sinhala society.
    i dont beleive in religons, religons are the main reason for so many conflicts in the world. jesos come from middle east.
    reply for velu p(sinhala dosser) north east is a belongs to tamils no body else. Look all the history. tamil ealam is inevitable.

  • 12. anton  |  October 16th, 2007 at 5:50 am

    Funny!! Imagination at its extreme. We are very gullible to such sensational unsubstantiated revelations.
    If I were to accept this as true, then I have to accept the
    “Jack and the Bean Stalk” also as true.
    After all, we have to have something to be proud of when really we have nothing to be proud of. Of course we have a wealth of ancient litteraryy works but nothing had an impact on our way of life. We simply praise them as a lip service.
    Has Thirukural impacted us, Tamils? We admire its wisdom superficially.
    Why are we fragmented and stratified into different social groups. Did we feel for those taken for indentured labour to the British Colonies? Did we ever care for the plight of poor Indians from Ramanathapuram who were brought to Sri Lanka as scavenging labourers. And also the workers in the Tea Estates They were also TAMILS.

    We do not respect our own but instead we fall prostrate at the feet of deities and individuals PERCEIVED by us as powerful.
    Social Equality and mutual care is virtually non existent in the Tamil Speaking community.
    To claim Jesus was a Tamil is a daydream, a daring fantasy.

  • 13. Naga UK  |  October 16th, 2007 at 11:21 am

    Forget the north-east being the homeland man! We are brothers and sisters below a political level be it Sinhalese, Muslims or any other. We understand the fact that vote-hunting brings you down to “loin cloth strategy” or the popular “Amude Culture” with the current mentality of the super-race propagated by the “Dushta Gamini” attitude! We have a duty by our homneland, which is Sri Lanka!! Trust me the best humans you can encounter is the Sinhala Budhist sans UNP, JVP,SLFP not to mention JUHU. If you are true Sri Lankan be such and no more.

  • 14. Zona  |  October 16th, 2007 at 1:45 pm

    If you want to know what was possible once in India, by the Rishis and people of similar significance, some of you might like to read 3 books by this author

  • 15. meditation video  |  October 16th, 2007 at 2:20 pm

    In thamizh there is an old saying
    ” Mottai thalaikkum mulankalukkum mudichu poduravan ”
    trying to tie the clean shave head and knee together with string

    Dr Padmakar Vishnu Vartak is one of them.

  • 16. Raj  |  October 16th, 2007 at 10:55 pm

    I guess this mean that Tamils will now have the evidence they need to lay claim Israel and the arabian peninsular as apart of the “traditional” Tamil homeland and start asking for equal representation at the Israel parliament and full recognition for Tamil as one of the official laguages.

  • 17. Seelan  |  October 17th, 2007 at 4:30 am

    Perhaps God is a Tamil too. Who knows one day Dr.Vartak jnr would claim.

  • 18. Thunnalai/Uduppiddy christian wellalan  |  October 17th, 2007 at 10:10 am

    Even a Professional Biographer cannot write a credible biography on Jesus due to lack of credible evidence. However DBSJ believes Jesus is a wellala Tamilan from Thunnalai, Sri Lanka.

  • 19. tushi  |  October 17th, 2007 at 12:46 pm

    North and East of SL is Tamil homeland; then Jesus was a Tamil, what’s next…..Nothern Ontario (Canada) and Nothern Norway are Tamil homelands?

  • 20. Rajan  |  October 18th, 2007 at 1:09 am

    Yes, god is Tamil. Every fool knows that. The chosen land is Eelam and the Devil is Prabhakaran!

  • 21. Jesus  |  October 18th, 2007 at 11:47 am

    I dont have any Tamil blood in me. Please stop tracking me into your stupid war. You Sinhalese can you let Tamil live in peace in their homeland. You Fernandao-pulle stop pretending being anti-Tamil.


  • 22. Thamilan  |  October 18th, 2007 at 1:18 pm

    Comment # 19,

    I find it funny that Tamils don’t make such claims like that but the Sinhalese think that we might or we should.

  • 23. kumar  |  October 22nd, 2007 at 7:02 am

    Without obtaing the fullest finding of Dr.Vartak, for his claims, these arguments and comments will not find a soultion. Who knows, he may have the credible evidence to support his claims. There may be truth lying on his claims. We must stop arguing!
    There were evidences where Tamils moved all around the world in ancient times, from North America to Cambodia. Why not to Isreal?The arecheaologist found ‘Lingams’ and the idols similar to sind-valley civilization, which was accepted as the Tamil/ Dravidian civilization.

  • 24. Karansing Rajput  |  October 28th, 2007 at 10:30 am

    i want to meet u, mr.vartak…….i want to have all those experiences u earlier had.

  • 25. Ayaduray  |  November 3rd, 2007 at 6:49 am

    We have enough problems and conflicts in hand that we cannot solve. Now Dr Vartak has to come up with this weird theory. This is indeed an amazing world. His middle name is Vishnu – hopefully he does not claim he is a descendent of the Lord.

  • 26. Saman.J  |  November 4th, 2007 at 3:36 am


    North & East tamils land.
    Jesus is Tamil,
    Fernandopulle is Indian,

    Dulip Chickera tastes the Wanni made wine as jesus blood at Mass…….


  • 27. ardneham  |  November 4th, 2007 at 11:19 am

    Thanks for the input to “Religious jokes” from
    your URL – a great relief having read this, away
    from the Air Raids of the recent times !

  • 28. Tamil  |  January 11th, 2008 at 5:31 pm

    I am 100 % Tamil and am very proud of it. Any way, Jesus was not Tamil. North and east is definately a place that belongs to the Tamils. Sinhalese people need to move back to their homeland, Antarctica! Long live Eelam:)

  • 29. sam  |  June 8th, 2008 at 1:07 pm

    yes jesus was of indian origin or he belonged to land we call today orissa or tamilnadu. So, he was a tamil for that matter, but thats not the point Dr.Vartak wants to make, we would understand it if we come out of our wars between north & south, LTTE etc. etc……………….
    I think the point he wants to make is he belonged to India and most of the religions did originated from this land.
    He has written a book on it, if u r anxious enough..
    I met him personally and I believe he is fearless to tell the truth…. even it hurts hindus sentiments.
