Nemuni

More interesting things from this part of the world, which is feet of Himalaya. I mean, I do feel a bit like Winnie the Pooh in his detective pursuit to find a Hephalump, check it out.

From Wiki:
“According to Skanda Purana, a rishi called “Ne” or “Nemuni” used to live in Himalaya.[15] In the Pashupati Purana, he is mentioned as a saint and a protector.[16] He is said to have practiced penance at the Bagmati and Kesavati rivers[17] and to have taught his doctrines there too.”

What about the ethymology of the main river in Lithuania “Nemunas”?

The root “mun” means in Sanskrit “wisdom”. In Lithuanian I cannot think of any words that have the same root and bet that the name for Nemunas came from this seer from Himalayas.

Makes a good Hephalump story, doesn’t it?
