End of Times - the Hindu Way ... with Harihara, the supreme Endgod
Hindu eschatology is linked in the Vaishnavite tradition to the figure of Kalki, or the tenth and last avatar of Vishnu names of the Supreme Being in Hinduism and before the age draws to a close, and Harihara simultaneously dissolves and regenerates the universe.
Always loved that Romanian philosopher Mircea Eliade made (or tried to make) the only world-known treaty of world religions. Maybe it was his love affair with the lovely indian Maytrei Devi (dreaming of their "Nuntă în Cer" - Sky Wedding) and getting more into Hinduism, but anyway ... wrote about this here : the History of Religions, a graphic diagram.
... more like Harihara i guess, because of our Dacian Sanskrit Indo-European roots ? in Barcelona I found this song I absolutely like even more than the Raggas of Ravi Shankar ... "cause we are indian, and we make it hot", i just love it :
And staying in wonderful cosmompolitan Barcelona together with a lot of Indian, Bangladesh and Pakistani immigrants I understood their culture better. Our friends from London24 SuperMarket (Supermercat) were from Bangladesh and when we went into some "Religion" views and talks about their culture, I was amazed that they did not know about their pre-islamic roots (Islam being the state, most common religion now as they said). Still, being so far away from their home - a far and not so rich country from where some want to escape to Europe I felt that they lost "their roots" a bit. And they have wonderful belief systems such as "Animism" (from latin Animo-Soul) like giving soul or spirit to every each object, even inanimate not only animals. A common ancient-old belief also to be found in the African cultures.

maybe all we really need is Somebody to Lean On, a song I discovered in 2015 with Lavinia while working for the "Atelierul din Hamac" cultural platform (a common melting pot for ideas, debates and cultures) :
