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.
