Cemil Meriç: Rumi Indologist-The Expansion of Turkish Thought World to the East

The first Sinologist, Tonyukuk 716, was born in China, he internalized China.

The first Indologist, Biruni 1017, traveled in India for 30 years. Published Historical Hind. Rumi Indologist Cemil Meriç was born in Rumeli in 1916. He worked on Hind for 4 years and wrote books.

From 646 to 2016, 1370 years of Sinology is a synthesis of East (Chinese Indian) West (Rumi) that met with our line of thought in Indology, Cemil Meriç, and the Occidental school in Rumeli Dimetoka. Our high flow cascade from the Orhun, Indus, Ganges and Meriç rivers carried us from the steppes to the waterside.The Westerners, on the other hand, named their plundering journeys to exploit Indian resources as much as possible, and named the robbers as Explorers, and named the Asian Indian people they encountered as Indians.

Cemil Meriç is our greatest Westerner. While researching the foundation of Western Civilization, he came across Hind and devoted his first book to Hind; Indian Literature (1964).

So the starting point of Occidentalism is in India and China; It is necessary to be a connoisseur in Indology and Sinology.

It never occurred to the Young Turks and their successors to look at Europe from India.

While Europe went to Indian sources, we turned to European sources.

Civilization structures that the Turks encountered as a result of their journeys that lasted for millennia; Together with China, India, Iran, Islam and Rum, they gifted a Civilization Alliance to humanity, and Westernization means adding the missing piece of Western (Europe) to this alliance.

The most refined meanings and interpretations of Çini, Hindi and Rumi found their meaning in the Alliance of Civilizations formed by the Turks.

Westernization, in this sense, is actually a geographical orientation that the Turks stubbornly and resolutely followed, that the ancient Greeks (Ionia), Old India (Gazneli, Timur, Mughal) and Islam (Khorasan, Transoxiana, Mesopotamia, Andalusia) that the West was fed spiritually have always been. Its synthesis was transferred to the West and created by the Turks.

Then the question is; Is it the European Union or the Turks representing the West? from Orhon river to Meriç river; from Greater Asia to Rumelia; From Tonyukuk to Cemil Meriç, let’s continue our Loyalty to Our Great Thinkers.
Cemil Meriç, as his surname implies, is the call of the Turks’ Indo-European Civilization Alliance adventure on behalf of the Turks from the European lands to the Indian dimension.
Europe, civilizational inspiration has its roots in the accumulations of ancient Greece and ancient India.
The sages of Turkistan, Harezmi (780-850) and Biruni (973-1048) are the first Indologists of the world.

Kitab al-Muhtasar fil Hisab al-Hind , the first work written on the Indian account of Muhammad b. It is the Kitâbü’l-Ĥisâbi’l-Hindî by Mûsâ al-Harizmî (d. 232/847). The most important feature of the work is that for the first time in the Islamic world, Indian numerals and the decimal numeral system were used together with zero. Western mathematicians learned to use the positional and ten-based Indian calculus instead of the calculus system they have been using since the Roman period, and they named this system “algorism”, which they derived from the name of Hârizmî.

Biruni also   collected his 30-year travels to India, probably stretching to Thanesar between 1017-1050 via Gazne, Kabul, Kashmir and Punjab,  in his book Kitâb’üt-Tahkîk Mâ li’l-Hind .
We have not been able to read the messages of our first Indologists Harezmi and Biruni for 1000 years. We hope that we do not miss the message of our last thinker and Indologist, Cemil Meriç, 1000 years after Biruni’s first Hind voyage in 1017, one of our first Indologists; The 100th anniversary of Cemil Meriç’s birth should be an occasion for these readings to be made.
The State of India, in the words of its founders, Nehru, states that Hindus and Muslims were the two main founding pillars in the founding of India. In this sense, Turkey’s leadership for India’s participation in the Islamic World; It is a strategic mission.
After the Indian Expedition of Macedonian Alexander Rumi 2350 years ago, our Indian Rumi thinker from Dimetoka, Western Thrace, from Hatay, the Cradle of Civilizations, from the World Capital of Istanbul, the Corpus of India of the late Cemil Meriç; It is the Enlightenment Manifesto of the 3rd Millennium of Turkish Civilization. The settlements of Dimetoka, Filibe and Pazarcık, located on the Meriç River, are the Rumelia lines flowing to the West via Murat Hüdavendigar, this time of the Rumi Turks.

Hellenism, which was imposed as a state policy through İnönü, broke the Turks from their historical roots. Cemil Meriç’s Corpus of India

It includes a Mission and Vision that will rise from its roots in order to revitalize our Alliance of Civilizations through Hind/Khorasan/Hittite/Hatay.
It is the end of IZMs that started with 19th century positivism, Cemil Meriç. The publication of the book “Indian Literature” during the heaviest period of IZMs (Socialism, Marxism, Liberalism) in Turkey in the 1960s is the first call to the Eastern address that should be addressed; It is the Indo-European Line.
The Indian found zero, and the Khwarezmi from Turkestan applied it to mathematical operations; And it was Europe that made Zero to One by taking all these and applying them. The difficult thing is to make zero to one, neither Turks nor Indians did it.
What H was actually at the foundations of Europe? Helen, Indian?
Along with the “Nile-Amu Darya region”, South Asia, where the Turks spread, is the region with the largest cultural spread before the European New Age. (Atlas of Philosophy, p.102).
The  Anatolian phenomenon on the basis of Europe is clearly followed in the book Anatolia , the Mother of  Europe.
Turks carried India to Europe. Europe is based on India (Alexander, mathematics, logarithm)
The first Indolog-Orientalists (Khorezmi, Biruni) were Turks. Orientalism in us (850) is older than Europe (1100).
The India-Horasan-Iran-Anatolia-Rumelia line is our own Indo-European development line, despite the Indo-Helen-European roots of Europe.
The meanings of Veda (Indian), Hagia Sophia (Rumi) and Kutadgu Bilig (Turkestan) are one and common: SACRED KNOWLEDGE.
For our Orientalism, topics and fields are vast in the East: Pacific-Indian Ocean, Persian Gulf connection via Altaic languages; our eyes are always out…
It has never occurred to us to look at Europe from India. While Europe was going to Indian sources, we were stuck with European sources through the New Ottomans and Young Turks. We are not in India, the European complex has eaten up our brains; blinded.
It is not possible to understand why we are strangers to our own sources such as Harezmi, Biruni, Cemil Meriç. A German wrote the book “Anatolia, the Mother of Europe”. In fact, it is “Turkey and India, the Mother of Europe”. Instead of worshiping Europe, the brightly disguised Hamaliye team would have seen these if they had studied the roots of Europe.
The first orientalists to transfer Hindi and Indian Mathematics to Europe were Turks; Harezmi and Biruni.
Hind in the theory of Indo-European languages ​​is originally the basis of Europe; it is not fundamentally Greek.
The main point of our Orientalism is Indian Studies, and the basis of our Occidentalism is European Ottoman Studies.
Lahore, Agra, New Delhi; It is our bright development and architecture in India.

Our Great Thinkers wrote Hind; Harezmi, Biruni, Halide Edip, Cemil Meriç, Bülend Ecevit.
Our History of Thought, which started with Sinologist BilgeTonyukuk (d.646), discovered the East and India in the West with Indologist Cemil Meriç (b.1916); 1300 years of thought accumulation is the myth of the 3rd millennium.

Let’s ensure our loyalty and permanence to our monumental, transcendent thinkers, which started with Tonyukuk and crowned with Cemil Meriç, with doctorates. Our Thought Journey, which was started by the wise Tonyukuk with the Stone Inscription on the edge of the Orkhon river in the far East, with the Last Thinker Cemil Meriç’s Collection of volumes in the westernmost part of the Meriç; By discovering the East within the West, he united both worlds through our Civilization.While the dark gladiators with the title AYDIN ​​darken the agenda, AMA (blind) Cemil Meriç, on the 100th anniversary of his birth, illuminates our millennials.

Our last thinker’s books have created a corpus approaching 5000 pages.
Both libraries have been created on the blog.
http://leventagaoglu.blogspot.com.tr/2016/11/bilge-tonyukuk-yazlar.htmlSo these are the main poles.East West North South.

Four-Pole Civilization..

Starting with the first thinker Tonyukuk, the Mission in the axis of the Last Thinker Cemil Meriç is an important service that should be done to the country in terms of directing to the right resources.

Tonyukuk grew up with the Chinese culture and Cemil Meriç grew up with the French culture, but they are locals.

They are neither Chinese nor French.

We need to show this to our people.

“Understanding the thinkers is possible by first identifying where and how they are positioned. Cemil Meriç, deep Muslim era (1917-1925), chauvinistic nationalism era (1925-1936), socialist era (1936-1938), purgatory era (1938-1960), Hindu era (1960-1964), only Ottoman era (1964) During the years of intellectual transformation he lived with the stages of -) he made an effort to position himself in this world as an intellectual with an inquiring, questioning and criticizing understanding. In this study, considering Meriç’s thought stages, the concepts of “place” and “nativeness” will be discussed first, and then the reflections of the idea of ​​”nativeness” in the mental world of the writer, who is an intellectual worker, will be emphasized. http://edebiyat.gumushane.edu.tr/user_files/files/Sempozyum.pdf

We are in the center of these two countries. The Mediterranean is the juncture of East and West. Humanity is in the grip of a terrible depression. Thousands of years of harmony between Kosmos and anthropos has come to an end. Europe forgot itself while conquering matter. It is only thanks to Indian that we can reach the great composition that will make one find himself.” Journal I, p.147
  • “India has become my second homeland because it is a country that gives a voice to all faiths” Journal I, p.370

  • “The land of the Pharaohs is a magnificent pile of stones, the mammoths rising along the Euphrates are underground, Athens is a dream, Rome is a legend… The Indian has been around for five thousand years. If the Indian had tied his hands and lived in the world of dreams, how would that great civilization be born, how could it develop, how could it survive? On the Verge of a World, p.90

  • While I was looking for Olemp, I came across Hint. This Country, p. 45
His first copyright book “ Indian Literature ” was published in 1964. Meriç, who set out with the idea of ​​writing a world literature, started with Iranian literature, but then turned to Indian literature. The work, which is the result of a four-year study aiming to destroy the prejudices against eastern civilizations, has been republished twice under the title ” On the Verge of a World “.
It aimed to illuminate an important aspect of Western thought after Indian Literature. With this thought, he wrote  a book about Saint Simon , who laid the foundation of socialism and the founder of sociology,  but had difficulty finding a publishing house to print it. The work was published by Can Publishing in 1967.
