    Pashupati seal of Mohenjo Daro ca. 2700 B.C.E.

    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!

Indus culture seems to have gradually spread from west to east, with sites towards central and southern India flourishing after Harappa and Mohenjo Daro had declined. The drying up of the ancient Saraswati or Ghaggar-Hakra River, east of and parallel to the Indus, may also have affected the civilization. There are numerous Indus sites along that river bed.
