Revealing the Theft of Paradise/ Janbuddeepa


The Ariyakammattana’s comprehensive study has revealed astonishing insights into the ancient waterways of Janbuddeepa, unearthing connections between the geographical descriptions in major religious texts and the notion of Paradise. This discovery not only challenges historical narratives but also reconnects us with our shared spiritual heritage.


Unveiling the Historical and Spiritual Connections

Our investigation mapped the ancient waterways of Janbuddeepa and uncovered a profound link with the spiritual landscapes described in Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism, alongside those in the Christian Bible and the Quran. The primary river of Janbuddeepa, historically revered as “Ganga/Ganges,” was misrepresented as the Ganges of Mahabharata under British colonial rule, reflecting a deliberate attempt to obscure and mislead about the spiritual and cultural heritage that has nourished civilizations for centuries.


Janbuddeepa: The Geographical Identity of Paradise

The study reveals that the Paradise described in the Christian Bible and the Quran shares the same geographical identity as Janbuddeepa, as depicted in Eastern religious texts. This transcends mere historical correction, bridging disparate religious narratives around a shared sacred geography, asserting that Janbuddeepa and Paradise are, indeed, one and the same.


Defining the Boundaries and Correcting Colonial Narratives

This research has precisely defined the boundaries of Dam̆badiva, the northern state of Janbuddeepa, encompassing various districts of Sri Lanka. It also successfully challenges the British colonial narrative that misplaced Dam̆badiva and Janbuddeepa in northeastern India and Nepal, reaffirming the true locations of the Ganga and Himawatha within Sri Lanka, distinct from the Ganges and the Himalayas of India.


Implications for Unity and Understanding

The convergence of these sacred geographies offers a unified ground for understanding our shared human heritage. It challenges the divisions sown by colonial manipulations and encourages a collaborative re-examination and appreciation of our collective spiritual roots. By restoring the true identity of this sacred geography, we reinforce the interconnectedness of human spirituality and the universality of our origins quest.
