General definition (in Hinduism)

While the Greeks have long cloaked their origins in myth the Sanskrit language and the Sanskrit speaking cultures reveal a tangible foundation rooted in actual history. In conclusion, Pocoke’s thesis states that the earliest phases of Greek civilization were rooted in the Vedic Traditions. Eventually, as in India, the entire axis of Greek civilization was later centered upon the Teachings of Lord Buddha. The great Sage Pythagoras was at the heart of this transformation.
