Indian temple rituals similar to Ark of the Covenant

The 5,000-year old history of the tribes of Israel, recorded in the Old Testament of the Bible, describe the era of Cheops, King of Egypt. The ten enslaved tribes of Israel - weary of pyramid-buildling - led Egypt, lead by a person named in the Old Testament King James version, as Moses. Moses appeared to bring some extraordinary technologies with him; the ability to "fold-back" water, make sticks sprout green leaves, and - to create light - light of a force, so great, it was called "God". Moses went up a mountain and came down with set of instructions. One set of instructions was to build a portable thing - "Ark of the Covenant", with carrying handles, and a tent to put it in. The dimensions were exact. Today's electrical engineers can tell you it was a capacitor. In short is created electricity; sparks, surges of light and electricity. Rituals were also ordered for the device; sacrifice of animal - with the fatty-parts of the animals burnt on the altar - Ark of the Covenant - the the wearing of certain ( all linen) clothing with bells and fringes, curtains with bells and fringes. Those rituals - modified over time and distance - appear in Indian and Masonic - and other religious rituals. For example Shukavak N. Dasa ( in "Hindu Funeral Rites and Ancestor Worship] "Rg-Veda"
Antyesti, Sraddha and Tarpana", records that the Indian Sanskrit instructions of the Rg-Veda; "it was prescribed that during a sraddha ceremony it was also required that brahmanas be fed. The brahmanas were not to be considered as mere human beings, but as representative of the pitrs. The position of the brahmana in a sraddha rite was therefore very high and they were regularly worshiped by the performer of the sraddha. When the brahmanas ate they ate on behalf of the pitrs. Their satisfaction was the satisfaction of the fathers. Although the germ of paying homage to the brahmanas is found in the Rg-Veda, the practice of feeding brahmanas was not in practice. In the Vedic period offerings for the dead were poured directly into the fire, which then carried the food to the fathers. The feeding of brahmanas was a practice that developed from the Grhya period. In the later periods, the brahmanas even came to occupy the position of the sacrificial fire. And so food and other such articles formally offered to the pitrs began to be offered to the brahmanas as their representatives on earth. In a further extension to this idea the brahmana began to represent, not only the pitrs, but even Brahman Itself. Consequently, when a brahmana ate Brahman ate, which meant that the whole world also ate".
