Hare Krishna,


It is said that in former times the whole earth was Bharata Varsa. Is there any mention of lands/places outside India mentioned in our sastras?


It is also said that Lord Krishna prefers to advent himself in India due to the devotees, however, in previous times the whole earth was Bharata Varsa. Did the Lord or his devotees manifest in other lands?


Why is it that if the whole earth was Bharata Varsa, there is no mention of other places outside India (pakistan/afghanistan excepted) in the various puranic accoounts.


I may have heard one of Srila Prabhupada's lectures where he seems to suggest that in the Ramayana there is mention of South America and possibly Brazil. Is this true and if so, can you identify the specific section/verses in the Ramayana where this is stated?


Thanks in advance
