"Maa" is {m tau} and is not necessarily dvi-goddesses. I view them as local Mother-goddesses of the Bronze-Age indigenous Tib-Bur speaking peoples of the Indian subcontinent extending into Myanmarpr, an example being Nan'ka'reign MDaw of southern Myanmarpr.

para 58. A: Kutsa . This warlike hero belonging to the Indra myth is mentioned nearly forty times in the RV. The name occurs only once in the plural as designation of a family of singers who address a hymn to Indra. Kutsa is four times called by patronymic Ārjuneya, son of Arjuna. Mention is made of a son of his, whom Indra aided in fight against a Dasyu. Kutsa is young and brilliant. He is a seer, who called upon Indra for aid when plunged in a pit. Kutsa rides on the same car with Indra, who wafts him or takes him as his charioteer.

UKT notes

Chanakya

-- UKT 140411, 151128, 180112:

There are two Poannars {poaN~Na:}, solely hated by the audience of classical Bur-Myan plays of before and soon-after WWII. The first being Chanakya {za.Na.ka poaN~Na:} - the kingmaker of Chandragupta, and the second Vassakara {wu~a.ra. poaN~Na.} - the Trojan Horse of King Ajatasattu.

In traditional Burmese drama, such as the Vesali - a play, the villain is always a scheming Poannars {poaN~Na:} based on the character of Vassakara - the chief minister of King Ajatasattu - the expansionist ruler of Magadha.

King Ajatasattu could not defeat the Vesali kingdom, and Vassakara went to the Buddha to get an explanation. Instead of giving an answer to the Poona, Buddha preached a sermon on unity being the root of invincibility. Vassakara got the message, and asked Ajatasattu to banish him after inflicting bodily punishment. The crafty Brahmin went over to Vesali, and asked for refuge from the rulers of Vesali who were easily duped. They employed the clever Vassakara as a trusted advisor not knowing his true intension. Using diplomacy (upalapana), Vassakara brought disunion (mithubheda). And when Ajatasattu attacked them again, they were easily defeated, because the princes of Vesali no longer trusted each other, and one would not come to the aid of other.
See http://www.wisdomlib.org/definition/vassakara/index.html 140411.

And then earlier there was Chanakya {za.Na.ka. poaN~Na:} - the king-maker of Magadha, who was instrumental in making Chandragupta king, the grandfather of King Asoka. The two Poonas were well hated by the Bur-Myan audience for their duplicity.

UKT 151128: The Poannar {poaN~Na:} Kautilya aka Chanakya cāṇakya (350 275 BCE) was the author of Arthashastra  arthaśāstra is known as the Machiavelli of the East. Both the Indian Kautilya and the Italian Niccol Machiavelli (1469-1527 CE) author of The Prince are masters of diplomacy & statecraft with hidden secrets, and economics, indifferent to moral considerations. Such people should never be trusted.
See An Introduction to the Machiavelli of the East ,
- http://www.returnofkings.com/67718/an-introduction-to-the-machiavelli-of-the-east 151128

From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chanakya 120127

Chānakya (Skt: चाणक्य Cāṇakya = च ा ण क ् य ) (c. 370283 BCE) was a teacher to the first Maurya Emperor Chandragupta (c. 340293 BCE) - the first emperor in the archaeologically recorded history to rule the complete Indian Subcontinent. [UKT ]

UKT: Akshara-to-akshara change from Dev to Myan:
   चाणक्य Cāṇakya = च ा ण क ् य --> {sa-Nak~ya.} --> {sa-Na.kya.}

Chanakya is generally considered to be the architect of Chandragupta's rise to power at a young age. Traditionally, he is also identified by the names Kautilya and Vishnu Gupta, who authored the ancient Indian political treatise called Arthaśāstra. [1][UKT ] .

See downloaded paper in TIL HD-PDF and SD-PDF libraries:
- RShamasastry-Arthashastra<> / Bkp<> (link chk 180112)

Chanakya is considered as the pioneer of the field of economics and political science and his work is thought of as an important precursor to Classical Economics. [2] [3] [4] [5] In the Western world, he has been referred to as The Hindu Machiavelli, although Chanakya's works predate Machiavelli's by about 1,800 years. [UKT ]

Chanakya was a teacher in Takṣaśila, an ancient centre of learning, and was responsible for the creation of Mauryan empire, the first of its kind on the Indian subcontinent. His works were lost near the end of the Gupta dynasty and not rediscovered until 1915. [6]

Doggie's Problem

in going from {kau:} to {kan} using {kn:si:} : {kan~}

UKT 151129, 170404:

{kau:} is derived from Pal-Myan vowel {AU.} . Remember it is NOT {a.ra.ric}. There is no {a.}. A similar case is the well known {I.} which has no {ka.}.

Pal-Myan has only {kau:} को, but no {kau} कौ, whereas Skt-Dev has both. Also note that from the vow-signs, को seems to last only 1 blnk - it is definitely not emphatic, and I should have given the transcription as {kau.}, i.e. {kau.} को - 1 blnk: {kau} कौ - 2 blnk . However in view of Bur-Myan phonology, I've given it as emphatic {kau:} को .

The nuclear vowel in {kau:} को, can be killed by killed consonants. We have an added problem when the killed consonants are nasals: /ŋ/, /ɲ/, /ɳ/ - TIL mascot Doggie's problem, because of paucity of nasals in English. The problem is accentuated with /ŋ/ because the only ASCII representation is the diagraph {ng.}. My solution is to change the representation of the nuclear vowel as shown in the inset.

Konkana

-- UKT 140410, 170404, 180110

My interest in this kingdom and its people is in the spelling of the word which in Bur-Myan would be written as a {nga.t}. For Skt-Myan I have to use a {kn:si:} . Reading through the following I have come upon another interesting word Kasyapa which is a name of: 

a Theravada Buddha, an eon before Gautama Buddha
  - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kassapa_Buddha 140410
  Kasapa Buddha {ka~a.hpa. boad~Da.} (Ajanta Caves) 
  - http://ignca.nic.in/jatak102.htm 170404
a Hindu-rishi Kaśyapa {ka~a.hpa. ra..} - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kashyapa 140410 
a Buddhist Arahat Mahākāśyapa {rhn ma.ha ka~a.hpa.}.
  - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mah%C4%81k%C4%81%C5%9Byapa 140410
a hidden cave west of Monywa across the Chindwin river which is revered by many in Myanmarpr as the grave site of {rhn ma.ha ka~a.hpa.} - the Arahat praised by the Buddha 

The names are very confusing especially when not correctly spelled and correctly affixed.

From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konkana_Kingdom 140410

Konkana was a southern kingdom populated by Brahmins during and after the period of Puranas. This kingdom is identified to be the Konkan region (coastal region) of Maharashtra. Other such Brahmin populated kingdoms includes Dravida, Andhra and Karnata. They have migrated in the later periods to the south as far as Kerala.

The name Konkana probably have originated from the older name Kanwa-gana (meaning the clan of Kanwa) a clan of Bhrahmins. Kanwas were a sub-clan of the Kasyapa-clan of Brahmins. They arrived at the western shores of Indian peninsula, which were the stronghold of the Bhargava clan of Bhrahmins. This history is hidden in the myth of Vamana who arrived at the sacrifice of king Mahabali, conducted in the land of the Bhrigus (Bhrigu-kaksha (Brauch in Gujarat), on the banks of river Narmada. This sacrifice was officiated by king Mahabali's priest named Sukra, who belonged to the Bhagava clan. In spite of the protest of priest Sukra, king Mahabali gave some land for Vamana. Starting with Vamana, many Kasyapas, in large numbers, settled in the kingdom of Mahabali. Their settlements outumbered those of Bhargavas and of the ruling clan of Asuras. Thus Mahabali lost his kingdom and was forgotten into the underworld of memories. (See also Keralas).

Konkana is not mentioned in Mahabharata. Thus it is obviously a later-period province. However, the epic mentions Kanwa, the founder (or a member ?) of the Kanwa clan. Sage Kanwa of the race of Kasyapa is mentioned at (1,70). He was the foster-father of Sakuntala the wife of the famous Puru king Dushyanta (Dushmanta). Kanwa raised Sakuntala as his own daughter in his asylum.

Nasal endings - Extension

UKT 180110:

We have already come up with simple nasal endings sometime ago. It has to be modified as we meet new words. This is an example how we have come up with:

{an.} (1 blnk); {an} (2 blnk); {an:} (2 blnk + emphasis)

from:

{kan.} (1 blnk); {kan} (2 blnk); {kan:} (2 blnk + emphasis)

Follow the following notes carefully, how I have to proceed;

Note #1 * UKT 151112: Though we, Bur-Myan, usually pronounce the vowels and nasals in three registers:

{k.} (1 blnk); {k} (2 blnk); {k:} (2 blnk + emphasis)
{k.} (1 blnk); {k} (2 blnk); {k:} (2 blnk + emphasis)
{ko.} (1 blnk); {ko} (2 blnk): {ko:} (2 blnk + emphasis)
{kau.} (1 blnk); {kau} (2 blnk}; {kau:} (2 blnk + emphasis)

{kan.} (1 blnk); {kan} (2 blnk); {kan:} (2 blnk + emphasis)
{an.} (1 blnk); {an} (2 blnk); {an:} (2 blnk + emphasis)

From the word {kauk} 'paddy' - MLC MED014, we can say that {kau:} can be followed by a coda. It means that the syllable-vowel of {kau:} can be killed. From it we can say that {kau:} should not be treated as an emphatic and that its duration is 1 blk.

Note #2 UKT 151129: After looking into the dictionary meanings of कैशव keśava and {k-a.wa.}, I consider the possibility of Krishna {ka.Nha.} with dark-skin & profuse head-hair being an ancient human king of the mythical Dvārakā city-state who had been revered by a group of Tib-Bur speaking peoples to the point of deification. After the defeat of the the bronze-age Tib-Bur by the iron-age IE speakers, the conquerors identify {ka.Nha.} with their Axiomatic dva-god Vishnu to make their dominance physically and spiritually complete. The same trick has been attempted in our time by the European colonialists on the militarily conquered peoples of the Indian subcontinent, Myanmarpr, SEAsia.

Note #3 UKT 151129: Compare words with prefixes {kau:} & {k}, and place the words in the vowel diagram. In meanings {kau:} implies lower portions like the genitals whilst {k} the higher portions like head and head hair. In the vowel diagram {kau:} is in mid-back position whilst {k} is mid-front. It is an example of contrasting vowel sounds giving opposing meanings.

Saffron-crocus

UKT 140411, 170405: "Saffron is a key seasoning, fragrance, dye, and medicine in use for over three millennia. [1] One of the world's most expensive spices by weight, [2] saffron consists of stigmas [of flowers - commonly called " threads"] plucked from the vegetatively propagated and sterile Crocus sativus, known popularly as the saffron crocus." - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trade_and_use_of_saffron 170405

The colour of saffron is yellow. In powder form it is adulterated with inexpensive turmeric, Curcuma longa powder. My last research in chemistry, as the associate professor and head of the department of chemistry, at Taunggyi Degree College (now University) is on the oil of Curcuma longa steam distilled from fresh rhizomes.

Maa Sakti of the Left-hand Path

UKT 180112: I remember reading somewhere Suja - the wife of Buddhist king of Heaven Sakka identified with Sakti of the beautiful eyes.

 

"Maa" {m tau} is not necessarily a dvi-goddess. I view them as local Mother-goddesses of the Bronze-Age indigenous Tib-Bur speaking peoples of the Indian subcontinent extending into Myanmarpr, an example being Nan'ka'reign MDaw of southern Myanmarpr.

It is probable that Mother-goddess {m tau} worship in Myanmarpr had nothing to do with its later-day association with Tantric Buddhism practiced by some Arigyi monks of northern Myanmarpr which King Anawrahta ruthlessly suppressed.

"Writing in 2002, Gregory L. Possehl concluded that while it would be appropriate to recognize the figure as a deity, its association with the water buffalo, and its posture as one of ritual discipline, regarding it as a proto-Shiva would "go too far." [18]

From Wikipedia: - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vamachara 151129

Vāmācāra वामाचार vāmācāra {wa-ma sa-ra.} is a Sanskrit term meaning "left-handed attainment" and is synonymous with "Left-Hand Path" or "Left-path" Vāmamārga  {wa-ma. mar~ga.} [1] [2] [3]. It is used to describe a particular mode of worship or sadhana (spiritual practice) that is not only "heterodox" nāstika to standard Vedic injunction, but extreme in comparison to the status quo.

These practices are often generally considered to be Tantric in orientation. The converse term is dakṣiṇācāra "Right-Hand Path", which is used to refer not only to "orthodox" (Āstika) sects but to modes of spirituality that engage in spiritual practices that not only accord with Vedic injunction but are generally agreeable to the status quo.

Left-handed and right-handed modes of practice may be evident in both orthodox and heterodox schools of Indian religions such as Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism and Buddhism [does not include Theravada] and is a matter of taste, culture, proclivity, initiation, sadhana and dharmic "lineage" (parampara).

... ... ...

Vamachara {wa-ma sa-ra.} 'Left Hand Practice', is particularly associated with the pancha-makara or the "Five Ms" {ma. nga:lon}, also known as the pancha-tattva. In literal terms they are: Madya (wine), Mamsa (meat), Matsya (fish), Mudra (cereal), and Maithuna (sexual intercourse) [7]. Mudra usually means ritual gestures, but as part of the Five Ms it is parched cereal [8].

- UKT 140310:

The Swastika is depicted in two versions: as the Left-Hand (left-turning) or the Right-Hand (right-turning). The Nazi-swastika is supposed to be Left-hand. However, it is not exactly so, because it is standing on a "corner", whereas the religious swastikas stands on a "side".

The Left-Hand in Bur-Myan esoteric Buddhism is known as the Lower-Path {auk-lm:}, and the Right-Hand is the Higher-Path {a.htak-lm:}.

BPal: {wa-ma.}
- UHS-PMD0864
  UKT from UHS: . mfn. beautiful. {wa-ma} - f. woman . left-hand, opposition

UKT 170405, 180111: I venture to identify the Left-Hand Bur-Myan esoteric Buddhism with the Mother-goddess religion - looked down upon by Male-god worshippers, who prided their religion as the Right-Hand Aryan religion. Both being based on childish fairy tales not based on reason and logic, and not supported by scientific facts are set aside - neither accepting or rejecting - by Gautama Buddha.

Bur-Myan, including those of faiths other than Theravada Buddhist, believe in esoteric practices in one form or the other. Contrary to what they may say openly, they have faith and fear in such practices and practitioners. According to the common belief, the Right-Hand acts slowly but eventually it wins over the Left-Hand practices.

Personally, on my own and through my maternal family, I came to know practitioners of both paths. I remember one Saya Ni of Thoangwa village a few miles from Kungyangon where I was born. Saya Ni was a well respected Left-Hand {auk-lm:}-master. He made sure that those who had come to him, must not be bent to harm his or her adversary. He would just try to set the situation right and would do no more. I remember, one of my aunts coming to my mother in the second half of 1930s with her very young son. Her complaint: her husband had been forced into a second marriage by his father to punish her - my aunt. My mother took my aunt to Saya Ni, and after taking certain "esoteric" actions, the second wife's mother came to realize that her daughter had become the instrument of punishment. She took her daughter back and the second marriage was annulled. My aunt then became very fast friends with the ex-second wife and her mother to their dying days.
