Beings from the stars have visited us numerous times in our ancient history. The tale of the Anunnaki is just one among many. These beings traversed various regions of Earth, sowing the seeds of humanity in those particular locations. Many of the gods we reference with different names in various religious and ancient texts are, in fact, the same deities as those found in Sumerian Epics. However, they are perceived through a distinct cultural lens, transmitted across time and adapted to the interpreting culture’s context.
The concept of the Anunnaki gods in Sumerian mythology does not have direct counterparts in the mythologies of India, Greece, or Egypt, as each of these civilizations had their own distinct pantheons of gods and goddesses. However, there are similarities in terms of the roles and attributes of certain deities in these cultures, which can be compared to aspects of the Anunnaki. Here are some parallels:
- India (Hinduism):
- In Hinduism, there are numerous gods and goddesses, and it is a highly complex and diverse religion, some Hindu deities can be loosely compared:
- Brahma: In some aspects, Brahma, the creator god in Hinduism’s trimurti (trinity), might be likened to Anu, the chief god of the Anunnaki, who was associated with creation.
- Vishnu and Shiva: Vishnu, the preserver, and Shiva, the destroyer, can be seen as having roles somewhat analogous to Anunnaki deities who had dominion over various aspects of life and death.
- Greece (Greek Mythology):
- Zeus: Zeus, the king of the Olympian gods, could be seen as having some similarities to Anu, the chief god of the Anunnaki.
- Hades: Hades, the god of the underworld, shares some characteristics with Anunnaki deities associated with the afterlife and the realm of the dead.
- Egypt (Egyptian Mythology):
- Ra: Ra, the sun god and creator in Egyptian mythology, has some qualities reminiscent of Anunnaki deities involved in creation and celestial matters.
- Osiris: Osiris, the god of the afterlife and resurrection, might be likened to certain Anunnaki deities associated with the underworld and the dead.
It’s essential to recognize that these are loose comparisons, and the mythologies and pantheons of these cultures are highly distinct and developed in their own right over 1000s of years. Additionally, each culture’s mythology served specific cultural, religious, and social functions within their societies, making direct comparisons challenging.
When I initiated Portal to Ascension, my objective was to uncover the core essence of all religions. However, as I embarked on this journey, the ultimate truth became increasingly elusive. Countless experiences, cultural disparities, and migrations have occurred, leading to an incredibly diverse narrative in our human experience. I have since set aside that initial purpose, and at Portal to Ascension, we now delve into the exquisite tapestry of the human experience with open hearts and boundless curiosity.
