These Stories And Characters Are Very Similar to Indian Hindu Epics


We have heard stories from the Puranas. The magical god doing different miracles to protect his disciples but few of these stories are not only similar but its weird. Are all these stories same but told in different ways? You be the judge!

1. Krishna's Lifestyle - According to the holy scriptures, Krishna was a cowherd boy and always used to be around cows and goats. On the other side, Jesus was a shepherd too! The stories of Krishna and Jesus has a lot of similarities.

2. Krishna's Death - The story of the Greek hero Achilles is a very interesting one. It is said that at birth, Achilles was dipped in the river Styx. This made him invulnerable to almost everything, even death however because he was dipped holding the ankle, his foot was totally vulnerable. Achilles was killed by a poisoned arrow. So how did Krishna die?

3. Indra - Zeus the Greek god is the ruler of Olympian gods. He is also responsible for weather phenomenon related to skies like storms, thunder, lightning and rains. Indra on the other hand of the ruler of the heavens and the god of thunder and rain.  Look at there weapon, is it similar?

4. Kamadeva - The story of Roman's Cupid or Greek's Eros is so similar to Kamadeva. Both Cupid & Eros are love gods, who travel with bow and arrow. 

5. Govardhana Giri & Mount Sinai - I would like to bring in a small passage from the Hebrew Bible. Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet God; and they stood beneath the mountain (be-tahtit ha-har) (Exodus 19:17) and in Deuteronomy 4:11 it states "And you came near and stood under the mountain [tahat ha-har]." It is described that were thunder and lightning flashes and a thick cloud upon the mountain so Moses led them towards the god who was basically under the mountain.
