Miteiya compares “Sense of Smelling” or Olfaction with Nakul in the epic of Mahabharata. Similarly various similar virtues are seen in Calchas of Greek mythology. Nakul was foster son of Aswini Kumars.
Olfactory neurons are established in the upper part of the nose. Upon receiving the smell, an impulse is sent to the brain. Smell has profound impact on memories. The dependence of memories upon smell is much more than any of the four other senses.
Miteiya talks about Yadu in the book. He also compared Jacob with Yadu in Part 4 of the book. Latent memories are very important component in the pursuit of truth.
Sense of Smelling is very important in order to have holistic view of the surrounding. This sense plays very important role in “Mate Selection”. Smell is the biggest attraction amongst people of opposite sex. Nakul has been depicted as the most handsome prince and has been compared to Kaamdev.
Miteiya’s discourse about sense of smelling and its connection with Latent memories can be seen in discrete parts. Explanation of Yadu, Jacob and Nakul covers similar areas. On various occasions, Miteiya compares “Deer” with sense of smelling and sexual attraction. The same area of teaching are covered during decoding of Greek goddess “Artemis” and while decoding “Marichi” in the epic of Ramayana.
The discourse on Nakul is interesting as it speaks about percolation of religious scriptures from European territories towards east.
