अयस् ayas, अंशुः aṃśuḥ as iron pyrites of Sarasvati civilization & Veda ādhyātmikā tradition — tantra yukti principles in metalwork thesis explained: pratinidhi ‘substitution’ and apamiśraṇa ‘adulterant’


Mirror: http://tinyurl.com/j9ldrnn

The monograph is presented in the following sections to track the validating parallels in Veda texts for metalwork evidenced in Sarasvati civilization as Veda tradition continuum (cf. Binjor a अष्टाश्रि yupa having eight corners). Examples of metalwork catalogues in two inscriptions of Harppa Script (out of over 8000 inscriptions) authenticate the metalwork thesis explaining the tantra yukti principles of pratinidhi ‘substitution’ and apamiśraṇa ‘adulterant’.

Section A. Ruśama evidence in Rigveda and in Sarasvati River Basin

Section C. अयस् ayas, अंशुः aṃśuḥ  in Proto-Indo-European,Rigveda, and Meluhha Harappa Script hieroglyphs/hypertexts

I gratefully acknowledge Manasataramgini for the elucidation of RV 10.177 which I cite in full for ready reference.


“The mineral pyrite, or iron pyrite, also known as fool’s gold, is an iron sulfide with the chemical formula FeS2. This mineral’s metallic luster and pale brass-yellow hue give it a superficial resemblance to gold, hence the well-known nickname of fool’s gold. The color has also led to the nicknames brassbrazzle, and Brazil, primarily used to refer to pyrite found in coal” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyrite
