Mythology, Astrology & Polytheism Have Obscured the Truth

Standard

Please note that in late Astrology-related Greco-Roman Mythology, Jupiter Saturnus and Zeus Chronos have been reduced from the Supreme Benevolent Lord of the Golden Age, and the Lord of the Exodus /Patron Protector of the Israelites and Judahites, and Time. the supra-Cosmic devourer of the worlds, to a mere ‘Saturn’ Planetary Regent /demigod who devoured his previous 7 sons who were prophecised to destroy him! The 8th son, Zeus/Jupiter was hidden away and raised by the Korybantes the (KOUROI of Rhodes), until he later destroyed Saturnus/Chronos, becoming the new king of the gods. This is all mythology and astrology…which is why NONE of my work is based on either mythology or astrology. 

Without understanding the theology and philosophy, the metaphysics and history of the real-word worship of HARI /HERU/HELI/ELI/HRIH/HARA and AUSU/WASU/YAHU/VASU-deva (Vishnu) one cannot understand anything about the ancient world properly. Astrology and mythology simply mislead people, creating endless permutations of ‘Hindu’-like monisms, henotheisms, panthenism and polytheisms etc. …everything BUT devotion to the Supreme Personality of Godhead!

‘Hinduism’ is not the answer. There are millions of ‘Hindu’ polytheists who worship ‘gods’ and/or ‘goddesses’ independent-of Krishna or Vishnu, or who worship other ‘Gods’ as equal-to, or greater-than Krishna or Vishnu! There are millions of ‘Hindus’ who are Mayavadi Atheists or Left Hand Tantrism-related hedonists wallowing in the dark mode of Tamo-guna. There are miilions of ‘Hindus’ whose lives are consumed with Astrology, Palmistry, Racist Caste Aryanism and endless other things that consume their lives without ever bringing them one inch closer to Love of Godhead, or Godhead’s Love for them!

Vaishnavism, however, is all about HARI-VASU-ATMAN Godhead’s love for us, and real-izing our love for Godhead! Vaishnavism is therefore NOT the same as this so-called religion of ‘Hinduism’, and we Vaishnavas should do all that we can to help non-‘Vaishnava’ devotees to understand this!

In the same way, we must help other peoples to sort-out the ‘Vaishnavism’ of their own cultures, from the same kind of nonsense that has obscurred it in their histories.

  1. Dear Vrin, (Our wonderful Editor who is doing the kind seva of posting this Site for the Lord and Our Lady and all of us) Thank you so muc for your service in posting these letters and finding some nice pictures to illustrate them. I have not yet accomplished the tasks to understand how to edit this site. So I will have to make some comments here.

    The above image of Zeus is probably an illustration of the Greek Myth of Zeus, in the Form of an Eagle, kidnapping the beautiful Youth (Kouros) Ganymede, out of homosexual lust for him! This myth says more about its inventors than it does about the religion of the Helios worshiping Greeks. My assertion has been that there that there were mis-interpretations of the classical depictions of the beautiful Zeus-Kouros (Helios, Krishna) riding on the back of His Eagle Vahana Garuda! We know from the discovered “Hymn to Kouros” that the Origin of Zeus was Kouros. If we saw an image of a ‘solar’ Vahana Eagle (or Hawk) with a beautiful Boy (Kouros) riding it, and the image was simply titled “Zeus”, we would not make the mistake of thinking that the Vahana Eagle or Hawk was Zeus, and that some beautiful boy was riding on His back! We would not think ‘oh here is Zeus as an Eagle kidapping a beautful youth for sex’ ! How many images are there throughout the range of Vaishnavism, of Krishns or Vishnu riding on Garuda? I will try to find an ancient depiction of Ganymede RIDING on the Eagle of ‘Zeus’ for you to post here, along side this one for clarification. All glories to Lord Hari, Who is always arriving on His Fierce Winged Vahana Garuda, for the pleasure and protection of His devotess!
