Pre Historic

Saiva Siddhanta is not just a philosophy, it is most perfect life style of people lived in Ancient Kumari Kandam[].

Origin of Saiva siddhanta is unknown and mordern researches conclude that it is pre historic which dates back to atleast 2 lakh years.

since time immemorable there is shiva workship all around the world and at that time peoples spoke one and only languagewhich is Tamil []

There are many strong evidences to support this like colorodo siva temple site, harappa(hara+appa) civilization, mohanjadoro, athachanallore, poompuhar, etc

Evidence of Pre Historic Saivism

அமெரிக்காவில் இரண்டு இலட்சம் ஆண்டுகளுக்கு முற்பட்ட கோயில் கண்டுபிடிக்கப் பெற்றுள்ளது. யு.எஸ்.மியூசியம் ஆஃப் நேச்சுரல் ஹிஸ்டரி ( U .S. Museum of Natural History ) என்ற அமைப்பைச் சேர்ந்த அறிவியல் அறிஞர்கள் கண்டுபிடித்த மிகத் தொன்மையான சிவன் கோவிலைப் பற்றிய செய்தியொன்று வெளிவந்துள்ளது.

23-11-1937 – இல் நியூஸ் ரிவ்யூ ஆஃப் லண்டன் (News Review of London) என்ற நாளேட்டில் அச் சிவன் கோயிலைப் பற்றிய செய்தி வந்துள்ளது. அமெரிக்காவில் மக்கள் செல்ல முடியாத கொலாராடோ என்ற மலைப்பகுதியில் “மறைந்து போன உலகம்” என்ற ஒன்றைக் கண்டுபிடித்துள்ளார்கள். அம் மலைப் பாறையின் மேல் ஏறக்குறைய அரை மைல் சதுரப் பரப்பில் பழைய சிவன் கோயில் கண்டுபிடிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. நில மட்டத்திலிருந்து ஏறக்குறைய 9 ஆயிரம் அடிக்கு மேல் மலைப் பாறையில் அச்சிவன் கோயில் அமைந்துள்ளது என்பது அந்நாளேட்டில் வந்த செய்தியாகும். சிவவழிபாடு பரவியிருந்த நிலையையும் அதன் பழமையையும் இதனால் அறியலாம்.

The Harappan Civilization
by Tarini J. Carr

For example, seals have been recovered with the repeated motif of a man sitting in a yogic position surrounded by animals. This is very similar to the Hindu god of Shiva, who is known to have been the friend of the animals and sat in a yogic position. These seals are known as the Shiva seals. Other images of a male god have been found, thus indicating the beginnings of Shiva worship, which continues to be practiced today in India.

Siva Linga - MS Wats 1940This is an interesting point because of the accepted notion of an Aryan invasion. If Aryan's had invaded the Indus Valley, conquered the people, and imposed their own culture and religion on them, as the theory goes, it would seem unlikely that there would a continuation of similar religious practices up to the present. There is evidence throughout Indian history to indicate that Shiva worship has continued for thousands of years without disruption. [cf. harappan cultural continuity]

The Aryan's were supposed to have destroyed many of the ancient cities right around 1500 B.C., and this would account for the decline of the Indus civilization.


The 'Squirrel' Sign: Title of Murukan

Bangles and Squirrel Sign

Parpola has proposed reading a pair of signs as 'bangles + squirrel' (Fig.III b), interpreting it as a divine title. The second sign appears to depict a small animal perched on a tree branch. Parpola has, in my opinion, convincingly shown that this animal is the striped palm squirrel shown in its characteristic posture of hanging upside down. Two faience figurines of the palm squirrel have been found at Mohenjodaro. The Tamil word for squirrel is anil (*canil). This loveable creature is often endearingly referred to as anil pillai (pillai being the general term for 'young one'). Parpola suggests that pillai by itself can mean 'squirrel' and the usage may go back to Proto-Dravidian as indicated by the words warce, verce (Gondi) and pirca (Parji) which mean 'squirrel' and are, according to him, cognates of pillay, Thus he reads the pair of signs as muruku pillay taken as referring to the god Murukan with the title pillay. Pillai is attested in Tamil as an appellation of Murukan, as the son of Siva.

Parpola departs in this case from his own rules of rebus, which require the finding of anothermeaning for the same word ( * canil), and not for an associated term ( * pillay). Further as far as I know, there seems to be no attested usage in Dravidian for pillay by itself to mean 'squirrel'. The suffix pillai is added in Tamil to a wide variety of words to indicate the 'young of the species" and not specifically or even mainly to the squirrel. As regards the Gondi and Parji words for 'squirrel' cited by Parpola, the suggested derivation from * pillay is not supported by regular phonetic correspondences.
