News items regarding the remains of Mother Teresa are given at:,

There seems to be some difficult negotiations between the governments of Albania and India. Each one is claiming that Mother Teresa belongs to them. Albania thinks Mother Teresa's remains should be returned to Albania because she was born Albanian and so that she may rest with her mother and sister.  India insists that Mother Teresa was very much a part of Indian life, and therefore her remains should stay in India.  Hopefully a satisfactory solution will be found for this "beloved" lady  who once said: "By blood, I am Albanian. By citizenship, an Indian. By faith, I am a Catholic nun. As to my calling, I belong to the world."   Her "Sainthood" is said to be approved soon.

Mother Teresa, the Nobel Peace Prize winner and internationally renowned humanitarian, is also described in Wikipedia at url

While reading the CNN news item, I noticed an unknown aspect of Mother Teresa that I want to share with you.

Mother Teresa was born in the Ottoman city of ÜSKÜP, Kosova, that is, a name that has been alienated from Turkish by altering its Turkish form  into "SKOPJE".  She was born by the name "Gonxha Bojaxhiu".  This is interesting because her first name "Gonxha" is the altered form of the Turkish name"Gonca" where Turkish Gonca means "flower bud" and is a widely used girl's name.  Her last name "Bojaxhiu" is the altered form of the Turkish nameBoyacu (Boyaci) meaning "painter". They are pure Turkish.  It should be noticed that when Turkish names or words are written in an altered manner (i.e., using an alien alphabet or by way of anagrammatization), they become extremely difficult to spot.  Her secondary name of Agnes must have been given to her later in life.




Supposedly, the "Christian" name AGNES is said to be from Greek "AGNOS" meaning "chaste", or from Latin "agnus" meaning "lamb".  In fact the name AGNES is an old so-called "gognamen", that is, "an extra personal name given to an ancient Roman citizen, functioning rather like a nickname and typically passed down from father to son".   But the word "gognamen" is actually the Turkish word "gök nami" meaning  "sky-name", that is, a  name given to a person in ancient times after a sky-deity.  Notice how difficult it is to spot Turkish "gök nami" in the supposedly Latin or English word "gognamen".

When the so-called Greek name AGNOS is rearranged as "GONAS", we find that it is the anagrammatized form of the Turkish name "GÜNEŞ" meaning"sun, sunlight".  The Sun and sunlight are unquestionably chaste and were and still are sky-deities for thousands of years by the Turanians.  Hence, the source of this name is neither Greek nor Roman but plainly Turkish and it is the name of the sun and sunlight. 

Additionally, when the name AGNOS is rearranged as "GOS-AN" we find that it is the anagrammatized form of the Turkish expression "GÖZ AN" meaning the "eye of the sky" which again is the "sun". GÖZ was another Turanian name for the sun in ancient times.  Alternatively, it is "KÖZ AN" meaning the "fire of the sky" which again is the "sun". These names "GÖZ AN" and "KÖZ AN" are also  "GÖZ HAN" and "KÖZ HAN" repectively, leading to the name ofOGUZ HAN.

In this context, Turkish word AN means "sky" and HAN means "lord, god"., GÖZ means "eye", KÖZ means "fire". The name OGUZ HAN was given to the Sky-God, Sun-God and Moon-god in ancient Turanian civilization. Thus, we see the reason why this Turkish expression was used as a 
"gognamen" These Turkish names, "GÜNEŞ", "GÖZ AN" "GÖZ HAN" and "OGUZ HAN" were anagrammatized into the Greek word AGNOS.  Notice how difficult it is to see them in AGNOS.

Furthermore, even if her name AGNES was from Latin AGNUS, meaning "lamb", we again see that this name is also from Turkish  because, AGNUS, rearranged as "GUS-AN", is an anagram of the Turkish word "GUZU-AN" meaning "lamb of sky" or "lambs".  In this context, Turkish GUZU means"lamb" and AN is the ancient Turkish "plurality" suffix.




Mother Teresa's mother - from url :
Dranafile Bojaxhiu


"Agnes' mother, Dranafile Bernaj, ("Drana" means "rose" in Albanian) may have been of Italian descent although some reports indicate her family may have owned land in Serbia. She was more religious than her husband. When her husband died the family discussed religion more often then politics and their ties with the local church, Sacred Heart, got stronger. Drana set up a business of handcrafted embroidery and textiles, but life was certainly more difficult. Even so, Drana was apparently a charitable woman who helped widows and alcoholics

The name of Mother Teresa's mother is said to be Dranafila Bojaxhiu which is again interesting.  She is also given by the name "Dranafile Bernaj"  where "Drana" is labelled as  meaning "rose",  Actually, her first name Dranafila is also an altered Turkish name.   

The name Dranafila is an anagrammatized form of the Turkish name "KARANFIL" meaning "carnation".  The name  Karanfil being a flower name in Turkish, like "gül" meaning "rose", is also a first name given to girls in Turkish culture.  In this anagram, Turkish "K" was first changed to Latin "C" (= K) and then alphabetically up-shifted to the letter "D".  Thus her first name was altered into Dranafila - a non-Turkish format.  Similarly her other last name given asBERNAJ (probably her maiden name) is actually Turkish BERNA or BERNAY which are Turkish names for girls.  

Of course, her mother's last name Bojaxhiu is, as pointed out above, the Turkish name 
Boyacu (Boyaci) meaning "painter", such as the one who renovates houses.

Thus, in every sense her mother was a Turkish lady irrespective of her religion which artificially changes people's ethnic identity.




Mother Teresa's father - from url :
Nikolla Bojaxhiu


"The name "Bojaxhiu" means "decorator" or "painter" in the Albanian language. There are conflicting reports about her father's occupation. Some biographers say he was a grocer and that his family lived in poor circumstances (Ramnaraine)."

Now let us examine her father's name NIKOLLA.

The name NIKOLLA is the Albanian variation of the Greek name "NIKOLAOS", etymologically, supposedly a combination of
 the words for "victory" (níkē)and "people" (laós).  This etymology is incorrect, misleading and is disinformation.  Actually, the source of the name  NIKOLAOS  is from ancient Turkish.  

The name NIKOLAOS, when rearranged as "AL-KONIS-O", is the anagrammatized form of  the Turkish expression "AL GÜNEŞ O" meaning "it is Red Sun"
, or in the form of "AL-KON-ISO", is the anagrammatized form of  the Turkish expression "AL GÜN IŞU"  meaning "it is red/golden sunlight". Turkish word AL (KIZIL) means "red, golden"; GÜN means "sun"; and IŞI (IŞU) means "light". 

Thus, the first name NIKOLLA of Mother Teresa's father is also an anagrammatized Turkish name.  The Albanian form "Nikolla" is a variation of the name"Nikolaos" just like many other Christians names which are 
variations of Nikolaos, that is, the Turkish "Al Güneş" and "Al Gün işi". Thus, we are dealing with a name that is related, by way of personification, to the sun and sunlight - as named in Turkish.  The name "St.  Nicolaus", is an example of this. 

It is no wonder that every Christmas, this personification of the ancient Turanian "Sun-God" and "Sunlight",  appearing under the guise of "St.  Nicolaus", supposedly comes into Christian homes in his "red" and "white" attire through "chimneys".  The very fact that "St.  Nicolaus" is dressed in "red" is due to the Turkish "AL" (meaning "red") present in his name.  Sun rays always come into homes through openings on the side or the top.  A very impressive example of this ancient Turanian culture is the so-called "Pagan" temple of "PANTHEON" in ancient Rome. 

The following picture of the Pantheon shows how sun rays are coming in at the top of the dome
 through a great overhead circular opening, so called"OCULUS" in Latin.  Of course, the Latin name OCULUS is nothing but the anagrammatized form of the Turkish expression "ULU GÖZ"  (meaning the"Great Eye")  and "ULU KÖZ" (meaning "great fire") which are alternative descriptions of the sun in Turkish.  Please see my paper on the Pantheon at url:


"Sunlight" entering the so-called "Pagan" temple of "Pantheon" through an "oculus". Through my research, 
I find that this ancient Turanian concept has been personified and evolved into what is now known as "St. Nicolaos".

According to Christian understanding, St. Nicolaos enters Christian homes through chimneys, that is, "sooty openings", 
during nighttime after all are asleep. This implies that the concept of Christian St. Nicolaos is either a personification of 
 or "darkness".It must be understood, though, that "Moonlight" is really sunlight reflected by the moon 
and "darkness" is a lack of light.  


(Picture is from




Mother Teresa had a sister named "Aga" and a brother named "Lazar" (Laz-Er) which are also Turkish names.

Thus, we see that Mother Teresa was clearly born into a Turkish family but somehow her Turkish identity is fully hidden and most likely, intentionally ignored.  It is difficult to think that the Church authorities did not know her Turkish background.  It probably was much more convenient for the purposes of the Church to hide her Turkish background rather than to declare it.



The name TERESA is also a Christianized Turkish expression .  When the name TERESA is rearranged as "ESADER", it is seen to be the Turkish expression"ISA'DIR" meaning "it is ISA" (i.e., "it is Jesus").  Thus, this "Christian" name has also been derived from the Turkish name ISA meaning "Jesus" by way of adding the Turkish suffix "DIR" to it.



After identifying her own names and also her parents' names above as Turkish, here, I would like to explain my insights into the term "canonization".

Oxford American Dictionaries defines the term "canonize" as :  "(in the Roman Catholic Church) officially declare (a dead person) to be a saint;  figurative regard as being above reproach or of great significance; sanction by Church authority."  ORIGIN late Middle English : from late Latin canonizare ‘admit as authoritative’ (in medieval Latin ‘admit to the list of recognized saints’ ).

Basically what this definition is saying is that if the Church canonizes something, that something becomes official LAW.

Now let us analyze the word "canonization".

CANONIZATION, rearranged as "ON-CANON-IAZTI" is the anagrammatized and romanized form of the Turkish expression "ONa KANUN YAZTI" (ONU KANUNLAŞTIRDI) meaning "wrote a law for it", that is, "made it into law,  made it lawful".

Turkish word KANUN means "law" ONA means "to him/her/it", YAZDI means "wrote", KANUN
LAŞTIRDI means "made it into law,  made it lawful", 

Similarly, the Latin word CANONIZARE means "
canonize, elevate to sainthood".

The Latin word CANONIZARE,
 rearranged as  "CANON-IAZER" is the anagrammatized and romanized form of the Turkish expression "KANUN YAZAR"  meaning "writes law", or, "makes into law" 

There is a second Turkish expression related to sainthood that is embedded in CANONIZARE.

The Latin word CANONIZARE,
 rearranged as  "CON-AN-IAZER" is the anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish expression "KUN-hAN YAZAR" literally meaning "writes Sun-Lord", that is, "makes him/her a Sun-God". Turkish "KUN-hAN" ("GUN-HAN") means "Sun Lord, Sun-God".

Thus, canonizing a person, is not only officially approving and declaring (i.e., making church law) his/her services to humanity, but also allogorically declaring the person as"Sun-God" or "Sun Goddess". This makes the person a deity, that is, a "saint" which is "aziz" and "azize" in Turkish meaning "beloved, blessed; dear, holy, sacred, saint" 

One equivalent in Latin of the term "saint" is the word "sanctus".  When the Latin word SANCTUS is rearranged as "CUNASST", we find that it is the anagrammatized and Romanized form of the Turkish expression "GÜNEŞTI" meaning "it is Sun", (where the SS combination is a replacement of Turkish letter Ş, Turkish letters Z and Ç in other cases).  This again proves that "sainthood" is allegorically declaring someone as  "sun-god" (god of light) or "sun-goddess" (goddess of light), and thus elevating the person to a level of godliness. 

In fact, the term "SAINT" is also from the Turkish word "ISTAN" 

The term SAINT is the anagrammatized form of the Turkish word "ISTAN", which means "god", as it appears at the end of the Central Asian country names - so-called Turkish  "ISTAN" countries.  The term ISTAN is from the Turkish names: IŞITAN meaning "that which lights up"; ISITAN meaning "that which heats"; and ÜSTHAN meaning the "the top-most Lord" - which are the definitions and descriptions of the ancient Turanian Sun-God and Sky-God.  



Thus, from whichever way we analyze Mother Teresa's background, we find that she has Turkish connection and, by way of canonization, she will be blessed with the hidden title of the ancient Turanian Sun-God (Sun-Goddess) as applied to other canonized people of the world. Gün-Han, meaning "Sun Lord, Sun God" was the name of the first son of the Sky-God OGUZ-KAGAN as noted in the Turkish epic story of the same name. Oguz is also the name of the Tur/Türk/Oguz peoples.

From all of the above discussion, it seems that the Church has a tradition of hiding away anything it takes from Turkish civilization - by way of altering source names into a format that looks and sounds anything but Turkish - as they have done all throughout their existance.  When her Turkish background, as I have explained above, is not known, and she is always presented as Mother Teresa, or by other Christian names, then she is being portrayed ethnically as an Indo-European - which is misleading.  With the new information I provided in this paper, most likely, Mother Teresa will also be known as "Anne Güneş Gonca Boyaci" in Turkish, that is, "Mother Sun (Sunlight) Gonca Boyaci" 

Evidently, Mother Teresa, who was one very specially gifted human being, whether she was converted to Christianity or not, has already earned the right to be aSun-Goddess by her tireless service to humanity.  May the divine Sun-God, (i.e., "Al Gün-Han"),  bless her soul forever! 

Best wishes to all,
