In the Valmiki Ramayan of India, Virochana (Sanskrit: विरोचन), was the first great Asura king with supernatural powers. (Asuras were power seeking deities). The Upanashids say that Virochana and Lord Indra together were taught at the feet of Prajapati. However, contrary to what he was taught, Virochana preached the Asuras to worship the ‘sharira’ (body) instead of the ‘atman’ (absolute consciousness).
In the ancient texts of South America, Vedic ‘Viro-Chana’ (विरोचन) emerges as ‘Vira-Cocha’ (वीरकोच). Scholars regard God Vira-Cocha ( वीरकोच) the equivalent of Lord Indra. The myths and stories about the two are close.Viracocha is the ‘King of Gods’ just as Lord Indra. Viracocha also wields the ‘Thunderbolt’, like Indra.
What would the name Viracocha of South America tradition mean in Sanskrit? The word ‘Vira’ (वीर) means ‘brave, heroic, powerful, strong’. ‘Kocha’ (कोच) means a ‘man of Mixed Ancestry.
Scholars say today, the megaliths of South America, such as the Temple of ‘Kalasasaya’ (which houses an idol of Viracocha) in Bolivia, could not have been made without alien help.
Investigations in Assyrian mythology prove the existence of a tradition in Assyrian history of such a king called Berosus – a distortion of Virochana and Viracocha – as it has often been reiterated ‘b’ and ‘v’ are commutable. According to Swami Vivekananda “the western nations are the children of the great hero Virochana.” (Source: Talks with Vivekananda: Publisher- Advaita Ashram, Mayavati, Himalayas, January 1939.)
Can we then say the same about Lord Indra. After all, as per the Puranas, Lord Indra did travel to Earth from his ‘Alien’ abode, namely ‘Indra Lok’.
