The Arctic Origins of the Aryan Race
The Aryan race ultimately can trace its origins to the Arctic regions where there once existed a Golden Age civilisation called Thule or Hyperborea. The reasons for my conclusions are based on an understanding of the various Aryan mythologies, evidence from astronomy, botany, biology and climatology.
The divine race of Ireland, the Tuatha de Danann are said in the Battle of Mag Tured to have lived in the islands at the "North of the world". Of course this does not in itself establish their exact geographical origin but it is certainly Hyperborean.
The Aesir, the divine race of the Germanic peoples are also indirectly credited with a Hyperborean origin because of their association with the lands of the far north of Europe-Scandinavia. The Romans referred to Scandinavia as Thule after Pytheas, the Greek explorer from the 4th century BCE who explored the northern regions of Europe. Of the nine worlds of Germanic mythology, Asgard is the highest and in a sense may be thought of as being the most northerly.
The Greek God Apollo is said to have been venerated by the Hyperboreans who spent every winter amongst them.
In the national epic of the Finns[a Non-Indo-European speaking but racially Nordic people] the Kalevala it is said that the ancestor of the Finns, Kaleva has his abode in "the North`s furthest fields".
Bal Gangadhar Tilak in his Arctic Home in the Vedas provides substantial evidence from the ancient Rig Vedas and Avestas that the ancient Aryans lived in the arctic region but during a time when it was temporate and could support a variety of fauna and flora which scientists have been discovering for years. He compares these ancient Aryan scriptures with evidence from astronomy and comes to this conclusion: "It followed, therefore that if the Vedic evidence pointed to an arctic home, the forefathers of the Aryan race must have lived therein not after but before the last Glacial epoch. But the traditions preserved in the Avesta dispense with the necessity of relying on geology for this purpose. We have now direct traditional evidence to show  that the Airyana Vaejo had originally a good climate, but Angra Mainyu converted it into a winter of ten and a summer of two months,  that the Airyana Vaejo was so situated that the inhabitants of Yima`s Vara therein regarded the year only as a day, and saw the sun rise only once a year, and  that the happy land was rendered uninhabitable by the advent of a Glacial epoch which destroyed all life therein."
This catastrophe which would have buried the Hyperborean civilisation necessitated a migration southwards of the Aryan peoples to less inhospitable climes. The Aryans however took with them their most ancient and sacred symbol, the swastika known also as the fylfot, the fyrfos, Hakenkreuz, Thor`s Hammer and the gammadion. This symbol can be found wherever Aryan man in the ancient past has wandered, even amongst civilisations which have been regarded by establishment historians as non-Aryan such as China and amongst the American Indians. This is no doubt due to Aryan man`s early contacts with these peoples where he was revered as a god and a bringer of higher civilisation.
The Popul Vuh gives an account of how the the ancient forefathers of Meso-America had been exiled from the far away city of Tulan.
The prevalence of the swastika amongst the various Aryan peoples in itself points to their Hyperborean origins for as George A. Keyx states in his Holy Grail Ancient Pagan Apocrypha "Another important aspect of the Polar Myth is its relation to the most ancient and sacred of Indo-European symbols-the swastika. The swastika has often been used throughout history as a symbol of the pole and of motion around it."
Keryx states in his book that by calculating back in time when Ursa Minor last rotated around the pole star Thuban , forming the swastika in the north sky was about 3,000 BCE. The cosmic sign of the swastika over thousands of years appearing above their heads would have made a deep impression upon our ancestors and its sacredness is linked to our very origins as a race.
Helena Blavatsky in her Secret Doctrine stated that the continent of Manvantara, the `Imperishible Sacred Land` "capped the over the whole North Pole like one unbroken crust".
