Vritra and his 99 Castles in the Ice Age – Part 1
(posted on 16/3/2013)
NB: there is a brief explanation on the cycle, at the end of this article, for those who are not familiar with the Cycle of Time.
(includes a discussion on the Snake around Shanker’s neck)
At the end of the Silver Age, the Lemurian city-state began to sink. Thus, it was decided that freezers should be placed in certain areas, so as to lower the water level. Enki’s father was handling this. Air-crafts which had ‘freezer-functions’ were created for this purpose. Then, Enki’s father asked Enki to take care of it. So Enki placed those freezer-aircrafts in and around the kingdoms of Lemuria and Bharath (for the purpose of lowering the water levels). Thus, in the Hindu myths, Enki and his father were portrayed as ‘Vritra’ the owner of the 99 castles which held the waters captive.
Vritra’s 99 castles were the huge freezer-aircrafts. These freezer-aircrafts were aircrafts which had freezers built within them. The freezers were functioning via the aircrafts that could be flown and placed in any area where the ‘freezer function’ was meant to be used. These freezer-aircrafts were huge and they had the shape of a mountain or pyramid. This was why the freezers-aircrafts were portrayed as castles, in the Hindu myths. The freezer-aircrafts were so big that many people could live in them (in a comfortable area within the aircraft). The number 99 represented that numerous freezer-aircrafts were used by those who played the role of Vritra.
At the end of the Silver Age, the city-state of Bharath was not ‘sinking’. It was only being destroyed, through earthquakes, as the Himalayan Mountains were getting higher and higher. So the rulers of Bharath wanted to build an alternative city-state (which was Dwarka). They wanted to build it on the lands that were emerging from the sea (after the rulers of Lemuria had placed freezers around Bharath and Lemuria, so as to make sure that the city-state of Lemuria does not sink).
Since the rulers of Bharath wanted to build Dwarka on the lands that were emerging, Enki was requested to place more freezers around Bharath (especially on the Himalayan Mountains). Since the Himalayan Mountains were getting higher and higher, it was getting colder there. So it was decided that if many freezers were placed on the Himalayan Mountains, the area would become very cold quickly. This would help to quickly capture the waters, in the form of ice, around there. Thus, the water-levels will get lowered more quickly. As a result, the lands (which Dwarka would be build on) would emerge more quickly, from beneath the waters. It was also decided that all the freezer-aircrafts will be controlled from the Himalayan Mountains (since so many freezer-aircrafts were placed there). Thus, Enki (as Kubera) was portrayed as going to the Himalayan Mountains to settle down.
Later, as the city-state of the Mu was also beginning to sink, Enki was requested to place more freezer-aircrafts in more places world-wide so that the city-state of Mu, lands of Mu and the other areas in Lemuria do not sink. The rulers of Atlantis had also wanted to make sure that the city-state of Atlantis does not sink (since it was near the sea). So, they wanted to place freezer-aircrafts around Atlantis. Ningishzidda was instructed to take care of this. So Ningishzidda joined Enki, in the Himalayan Mountains, and sent freezer-aircrafts to be placed in the north of North America, in Northern Europe and in many other places world-wide. The freezers, which were world-wide, were all controlled from the Himalayan Mountains (with the Anunnaki living in Mount Kailash). It was these numerous freezers world-side, which had brought about the ancient Ice Age (before the Copper Aged Great Flood).
Vritra was a role that was initially actively used by Enki, during the Confluence between the Silver and Copper Ages. Later, Ningishzidda also began to play that role when he got involved with the freezer-aircrafts (so as to improve their functioning ability and to use them in the north of North America, in Northern Europe, etc). This was why, in the Rig Veda, Vritra was known as Ahi (snake) who guarded the waters that were held captive. Originally, it was Enki, Ningishzidda and their representatives who were portrayed as the snake or serpent or dragon because of their role in the line of Enki. Since Ningishzidda was playing a role which involved the line of Enki, Ningishzidda was also portrayed as Kubera and as a snake/serpent/dragon. All those in the line of Enki were portrayed as a snake/serpent/dragon:
1. because of their immortal roles.
2. because the advanced sciences (knowledge) were placed in Enki’s hands for what has to happen in the Underworld. The sciences were used as an indirect way to establish faith in God (at the beginning of the Copper Age); and the sciences will be used as an indirect way for world transformation, at the end.
3. because the Anunnaki souls were deity souls who will finally transform, at the end of the cycle, to become the divine immortal souls (who change their physical bodies so as to take births in the first half cycle).
The snake keeps shedding its skin without dying. This is similar to how we (the souls who use the immortal roles) keep changing our physical bodies, from the end of the Silver Age until the end of the cycle. We (the souls) began using these immortal roles from the end of the Silver Age. We are influenced by these immortal roles during each subsequent birth. Then, at the end, we continue playing the immortal role again, in an active manner. So we (the souls) are like the snake, which keeps changing its skin while it is still alive. The physical bodies are like our skins. Since those who play the immortal role are continuing to play their role in the afterlife, it is as if they are not dead (while they keep changing the physical bodies through taking births).
The advanced sciences (knowledge) were placed in Enki’s hands, so that it can be used for what has to happen in the Underworld. It was through using these advanced sciences that the Lemurians had created the freezers. There was no need to use freezers, during the first half cycle. Freezers were only used from the end of the Silver Age. During the Confluence between the Silver and Copper Ages, the sciences were used in such a way, that it was only helping to bring about destructive events on earth. Thus, with time, the sciences were associated to evil or it was seen as ‘evil knowledge’ or the ones (in whose hands the sciences were in) were portrayed as being ‘evil’ or they were associated to ‘evil’.
At the beginning of the Copper Age, Enlil and the others had also begun using the sciences to make themselves look like God on earth. They had also used the sciences so as to make people believe in God. They did this because people had to turn to God, during the second half cycle. However, ‘faith’ that was developed through seeing miracles (that were created through using the sciences) was not developed in the proper way. It was as if Mankind was being deceived by the ‘ones’ who were seen as the ‘snake’ that was deceiving them through using the sciences. Sometimes, even Enlil was portrayed as the evil snake because of his actions which brought about destructive events, etc. However, it was Enki who was normally associated to the evil snake because:
1. Enki was flowing along with Enlil,
2. the sciences were under Enki’s control,
3. the freezers were under Enki’s control, and
4. it was Enki who was supposed to play the main role in the Underworld.
Enlil was not portrayed as Vritra, in the myths. Enlil was portrayed as Indra, in the myths. It was Enki, Ningishzidda and others who were portrayed as Vritra, in the myths. Vritra was just a role. Enki and the others were actually representatives of God on earth. This was why those who played a role in respect of these freezers, in the Himalayan Mountains/Mount Kailash, were also seen as Shanker; and Shanker was associated to God Shiva. As God’s instruments, on Mount Kailash, these people were seen as playing the role of Shanker. The Hindu god Shanker was portrayed with a snake around his neck because of:
1. Enki’s role in the Underworld,
2. the role of Vritra which was being used by those in the line of Enki, during the Confluence between the Silver and Copper Ages, and
3. the divine Naga soul -conscious stage, during the Confluence Age (at the end).
At the end of the cycle, all the deity souls will be involved with transforming into the immortal souls. This does not involve immortal roles like the ones that are used from the end of the Silver Age until the end of the cycle. The immortal souls will live in the first half cycle (in the Golden and Silver Ages). The soul attains the immortal state through the Confluence Age. During the Confluence Age, we (the souls) are like the divine snakes who know that we are changing the physical body from the imperfect one to the perfect one. Thus, all those who are involved with walking into the Golden Age, and who are going to take their next birth in the first half cycle, are the divine snakes who are in the process of changing the physical body from the imperfect one to the perfect one.
The Anunnaki, who walked out of the Silver Age, were the deity souls who had transformed back into the mortal souls. Then, at the end of the cycle, they will transform back into the immortal souls. Enki and Ningishzidda were portrayed as snakes because their immortal roles (from the end of the Silver Age to the end of the cycle) was meant to help them to transform back into the divine snakes, at the end of the cycle. The service done, through their immortal roles, will also help all the deity souls to transform back into the immortal souls (at the end of the cycle). The service, which is done through the Copper Aged immortal roles, is not the ‘direct way’ for world transformation. It is an indirect way. World transformation takes place through the spiritual effort-making that is done in the Confluence Age for ‘world transformation’. Those who use the immortal role will only help to explain the evidences that had been left behind while guiding everyone into the False Golden Aged world. Thus, what is done by those using the immortal roles provides an indirect way of taking the souls into the Golden Age. Thus, those involved with the immortal roles were associated to the snake, which does not walk straight.
There is a difference between the divine Confluence Aged snakes and the Copper Aged immortal snake-god roles. This was one reason why it was portrayed, in the Hindu myths, that God/Indra was on one side and that the snake-god (Vritra) was on the other side.

NB: All my articles are based on time moving in a cyclic manner, in the order as follows:
1. the divine world in the first half cycle: involving the Golden Age (Satyug) and Silver Age (Tetrayug),
2. the Confluence between the Silver and Copper Ages: where the world transforms back into the ordinary state (after a vice was entertained),
3. the ordinary world of the second half cycle: involving the Copper Age (Dwapuryug) and Iron Age (Kaliyug),
4. the Confluence Age : through which the world is transformed back into the divine Golden Aged world.
