Hinduism and the Cronides

A mosaic of Dionysus fighting the Indians in the Palazzo Massimo at Rome.
I intend to show through ancient Hindu mythology and writings, that the Hindu gods/goddesses are the same as the Greek-Egyptian Gods and are the same as the Cronides.  To start off, I will give a brief  chart of which god/goddess corresponds to which god/goddess in Greek mythology.  There are various forms of Hinduism as well and I will try my best to explain the differences.  The writings from ancient Greek Scholars such as Nonnos and his Dionysiaca tell the story of the interaction of the ancient Cronides with the Indian people who were considered autochthones to the area.  The main Indian character named King Deriades will be explored further in this blog as the Indians considered themselves to be children of the River and King Deriades would not submit to Dionysus but was instead killed after years of war with Dionysus and his army.  The number of Hindu gods/goddesses are said to be in the millions, but it is their main gods/goddesses that I will concentrate on.  Here are a few of the equivalents:

Zeus- Indra, Shiva, Vishnu, Brahma, Pashupati

Hera - Lakshmi

Dionysus - Krishna

Kali  - Athena

Agni - Prometheus

Ganesh - Hermes

Pavarti - Demeter

In addition to these main gods/goddesses, they often have various other incarnations which almost appear to be different aspects of the same being or perhaps hints at reincarnation in some cases.

Per Wikipedia:

Hinduism is the dominant religion[note 1] of the Indian subcontinent, and consists of many diverse traditions. It includes Shaivism, Vaishnavism and Shaktism[2] among numerous other traditions, and a wide spectrum of laws and prescriptions of "daily morality" based on karma, dharma, and societal norms. Hinduism is a categorisation of distinct intellectual or philosophical points of view, rather than a rigid, common set of beliefs.[3]
