Did Marvel get the inspiration for the multiverse of madness from the Hindu scriptures ??

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was released in theatres on 6 May 2022.  We realized that the whole movie was based on Indian mysticism more than anything else, the books to everything were in Vedic Sanskrit along with the mudras that Stephen uses are not just mere hand gestures.

The movie was completely based on Hinduism. Stephen meditates and talks about dimensions, and spirituality, and his Guru “Ancient one” is a Hindu monk, he also becomes like her. It looked like a Srichakram found in Hindu Goddess Temples. Even in the first movie, Dr Strange says all the ancient magic books are in Sanskrit.

Let’s discuss some Hindu Mythology references in DoctorStrange:

1) The third eye – We saw that Dr Strange has the third eye, TheEyeofAgamotto?

If Lord Shiva opens his third eye, fire comes out, which destroys everything and opens a new dimension, these parallels! The third eye concept from Hindu yogic culture where you can feel and see the entire cosmos just meditating they can merge with the universe.

2) Multiple Arms – On top of his multiple arms we saw how Dr Strange is twisting his leg like the Hindu god Shiva. A call back to InfinityWar and a reference to Hindu Goddess Durga

3) Wifi-password, Shambhalla –  Mordo hands Strange the small piece of paper which has the word “Shamballa” written on it “What is this, my mantra?”

Mordo responds, “It’s the wifi password.  Hindu texts refer to Shamballa as the birthplace of Kalki, the last incarnation of Lord Vishnu. It is said that the birth of Kalki will usher in a new era which is called Satya Yuga, the “Golden Age”, where the purest souls stay away from all dangers.

4) The poster – It looks like Marvel got the idea for the posters of a multiverse of madness from paintings of the multiverse in the Bhagavad Gita.

Multiverse was Explained 5000 years Ago in Hindu Scriptures. Multiverse, parallel universes, higher dimensions, and more have been already explained in Hindu dharma.

It’s great to see that such movies are taking inspiration from Hindu Temples and traditions. Stories from Hindu dharma told with the quality of VFX in Marvel movies would be a spectacle to behold on the big screen.
