So when the Maori harken to the mythical Wharekura school, situated far to the east, they're actually referring to India and Australia? Yes, that's pretty far east!

The Sakti Cult, which in my view preserves many of the early elements of the cosmological tradition, is traditionally understood to have passed south and east from India as far as Australia. But virtually every mode of the tradition is arguably far earlier than what we see in New Zealand. See Franchesco Brighenti's Sakti Cult in Orissa as a definitive source.

The Tamil bell is understood to be a 500-600 year old artifact. Other elements of the Maori tradition play out in relation to what, cosmologically speaking, is also a much earlier era.
