    Pashupati -The Horned God. This most ancient representation of the "Lord of Animals" archetype comes from the Mohenjo Daro culture of c.3000 BCE. The horned deity assumes a yogic pose still practiced today to bring in energy to the body core. He is surrounded by his totem beasts, recreating the sense of harmony with nature in which pre-Dravidian agrarian cultures lived. The similarity with Cernunnos is really amazing! But also quite logical ... the Celts came FROM Asia!

    The earliest archaeological evidence of Yoga's existence could be found in stone seals which depict figures of Yoga Poses. The stone seals place Yoga's existence around 3000 B.C.
