  • Le mahā-múni Mayan (மாமுனி Māmuṉi, du sanskrit signifiant « grand ascète ») ou encore Brahma-rishi Mayan est un héros prométhéen de la culture tamoule. Personnage central de diverses épopées de la tradition littéraire Sangam (le Silappatikaram, Manimekalai, et le Civaka Cintamani), il est fréquemment assimilé au roi des asura, le démon Maya (asura) (Mayasura) du Mahābhārata, inventeur légendaire des règles de l'architecture traditionnelle indienne (le Vastu Shastra). Selon le professeur V. Ganapati Sthapati, directeur du College of Architecture & Sculpture, Mayan aurait été vénéré par Vyasa comme le Vishvakarma, le forgeron primordial adoré par la secte des Vishwabrahmin. On lui attribue divers exploits, allant de la composition d'un « mantra primordial » à la construction de machines volantes. Selon la doctrine reçue du mysticisme nationaliste tamoul, le « Pranava Veda » de Mayan serait une transcription fidèle du Tamil Veda originel, composé il y a 10 000 ans au Kumari Kandam, et les Vedas hindous n’en seraient que des extrapolations. On attribue encore à Mayan la paternité du Surya Siddhanta, et d'un traité (perdu) de grammaire sanskrite, l’Aintiram. « L'inventeur de tous ces anciens savoirs est un certain Mayasura, de la tribu de ceux qui édifièrent la mayasabha du Mahabharata. Mais il vécut à l'époque du Ramayana, il y a 16 000 ans. Il fut le père de Mandodari et le beau-père de Ravana. Une de ses nièces était Sita, qui avait épousé Rama et par erreur il déclencha la guerre. Il était passé maître en plusieurs disciplines, dont la vastu shastra, la Jyotirganita-Surya Siddhanta, l’Aintiram... la géographie, la physique, le principe Brahma, le yoga shastra etc. Ses contributions à l'esthétique étaient fort prisées du défunt Pr. [Surendra] Barlinge. » — R. R. Karnik, Deccan Herald (29 septembre 2003) Les mystiques nationalistes tamouls, tenants du mythe du continent perdu de Kumari Kandam, voient dans la « tradition Mayan » l'origine de toutes les grandes civilisations humaines, y compris la civilisation Maya.
  • Mamuni Mayan (மாமுனி Māmuṉi meaning Brahmarishi Mayan, Sangakala Sirpachithan Mamuni Mayan, Mayamuni, Mayendran) is a culture hero character from Tamil Sangam literature (the Silappathikaram, Manimekalai, and Civaka Cintamani epics), identified with the asura Maya Dānava (Mayasura) of the Mahabharata, the mythical founder of Vastu Shastra. Romakapura (Sanskrit) [from romaka hairy + pura city, fortified town] City of hairy ones; in the Surya-Siddhanta (1:6; 12:39), is given as the birthplace of Asura maya. In 2004 V. G. Sthapati started construction of a "monument to Mayan" near Mamallapuram. Mamuni Mayan is credited with feats ranging from the composition of a primeval "Pranava Veda" to the construction of UFOs. In Tamil national mysticism, Mayans "Pranava Veda" is considered the original Tamil Veda, written some 10,000 years ago in Kumari Kandam, from which the Hindu Vedas are imperfect derivations. Mayan is credited with the authorship of the Mayamata Vastu Shastra as well as the Aintiram (Aindra, a school of grammar connected with the Tolkāppiyam). If there had been a grammatical treatise called Aintiram, it has been lost, but a text called Mayan's Aintiram dealing with Vastu Shastra was published by Sthapati in 1986, with the support of C. Aranganayakam, Tamil Nadu minister of education, and again in 1997 by the "Vaastu Vedic Research Foundation" with English commentary by S. P. Sabarathnam. MayaAsura is credited with the Surya Siddhanta, The 29 September 2003 edition of the Deccan Herald had an article on Mayan by R.R.Karnik, The originator of all these ancient sciences is one known as Mayasura of the same tribe that constructed the mayasabha of Mahabharata. But the period is that of Ramayana some 16,000 years ago. He is the father of Mandodari and father-in-law of Ravana. One of his niece was Sita, who had married Rama and [by] an error of judgement started the epic war. He was master in many subjects. Some of these are: Vastu Shastra, Jyotirganita-Surya Siddhanta, Aintiram, ... cartography, fundamental physics, the Brahma principle, the yogashastra etc. His contribution to Aesthetics ... was highly appreciated by late Prof. [Surendra] Barlinge. Some Tamil mysticists think that all of human culture is derived from the "Mayonic tradition", including that of mesoamerican Maya civilization. Intrigued by the homonymy, G. V. Sthapati visited Central America and "traveled throughout that region visiting ancient monuments and meeting with modern Mayan representatives."
