BALARAMA as Jesus Christ, Asklepios-Serapis & Ananta Charaka

Standard

Behold Jesus Christ as the Mature Asklepios-IASAS (Serapis and Charaka), the Great Physician and All-Healing Savior of All Worlds! Lord Ananta Baladeva as the Ayur Vedic Great Physician Charaka was traditionally a mature unshorn (bearded and long haired) wandering mendicant healer. As the Deity Charaka (not the later court physician Charaka), His identity as GOD (Sam-Karshana, Baladeva) was ‘hidden’ to the World, but when He appeared as Jesus Christ, it was revealed to His Disciples. 

Background of this Study…Dear Friends, In my first meeting with Dr. J. Stillson Judah, Emeritus Professor and Head of the Library at the Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley California USA, Dr. Judah told me that he had long been sure that the original Apollo (Helios Kouros) and Dionysos were Krishna and Balarama, and that Asclepius was Jesus Christ, but that I had finally found the proof of it. Furthermore I had found the ORIGIN of the Judeo-cCatholic Bridal Mysticism Tradition in the primal worship of Helios Kouros and Rhoda, Krishna and Radha on Their pre-historic Sacred Lotus Isle of Rhodes. The Alter-Form of Kouros, as Their Hierophant, Dionysos, was Incarnate as Their ‘Son’ Asklepios. Dr. Judah was thrilled that I had also found the formative connections between Asclepius, Jesus and Ananta-Balarama as the Ayur Vedic Great Physician, Caraka. My discoveries proved the common-origin connections between the Judeo-Christian Tradition, Vaishnavism, Shaivism and Pure Land Buddhism. So, at that first meeting with Dr, Judah, even though his beloved wife was ill, he enthusiastically offered to come out of retirement to mentor me, as my Field Faculty Advisor, in setting-up my external Master’s Degree Program through Goddard Graduate School of Norwich University. Subsequently, due to Dr. Judah’s help, I was able to set-up my Goddard Master’s Degree Program with Dr. Judah as my Field Faculty Mentor, and thus to get access to Dr. Judah’s extensive knowledge of Vaishnavism, and the Vaishnava etc. related texts in the Rare Books Collection at the GTU Library. Dr. Judah did all that he could to help me, until his wife’s medical condition required his full time attention.During my various extended visits to Berkeley, I also had the opportunity to consult with Bhakti Swarup Damodara Goswami, Hanumat Presak Swami, Rohini Kumar Swami, other Vaishnava scholars and Prof. Huston Smith about my research. Many years later Prof. Smith wrote a nice note to me, validating my research findings.

When Dr. Judah needed to take full-time care of his gravely ill wife, Dr. Michael Rolfson of Marylhurst College in Lake Oswego Oregon took-over as my Goddard Graduate Degree Program Field Faculty Mentor. Even though I was also suffering from life-threatening health problems, I struggled-through to the successful Oral Presentation and Defense of my Master’s Thesis at the West Coast Regional Goddard Graduate School Colloquium held in Asilomar, California. To attend the Colloquium I had to be transported in an ambulance and make my Thesis Presentation and Defense from a reclining wheelchair while on oxygen. Unfortunately I did not then, in the 1980s, have the financial means or support services necessary to publish my accepted Thesis and receive my Degree, so I never did receive my Master’s Degree. Instead I was bed-ridden and on a life-support respirator for years, due to deterioration from decades of undiagnosed and untreated post-polio syndrome.

More on the Ayur-Vedic Great Physician Tradition…

As the ‘Anointed’ Great Physician Dhanvantari, Lord Ananta Baladeva first delivers the Amrita or Ambrosia Soma Rasa Nectar of Immortality for the beatified eternal life of the Godly (the Devas) in His KALASH. This KALASH is obviously the Sacred CHALICE of Lord Jesus Yagna Purusha Yupa Dhvaja! Thus the Lord’s Kalash Nectar of Immortality Vessel is very sacred throughout the ancient related Bhakti Traditions.

For example in some African tribes it is taught that there is a descending Amida-Raigo like experience at a person’s death, when the Lord comes with His Heavenly Host to save the soul devoted to Him. So that the soul will recognise the Lord among the Heavenly Host, He will be the Being carrying the Sacred Vessel to deliver to them the Nectar of Immortality. As a symbol of their spiritual leadership a Sacred Vessel is given to the spiritual masters of these tribes.

Kumba or ‘ritual pots’ are used throughout the range of Vaishnava, Shiva-Shakti, Pure Land and Tantric Buddhist practice. In Vedic and Tantric (both Dakshina Marga and Vama Marga) Rituals, a kumba or vessel may be decorated with su-vastikas, coconuts and sacred leaves. generally such vessels are associated in the ritual with the Shakti of the Lord. So, for example, the holy vessel and the Ganga water in it, both represent the Shakti of the Lord. As Shakti or Shekinah emanates from ELI / HARI (Vishnu) or EL / HAR (Shiva), the Holy Water or Nectar of Life that Flows from His Body may also be considered a Form of His Shakti.

During Arotika when the Lord’s Murti is being worshiped in the Temple, the Amrita from the Nectar Offerings used to bathe the Lord, is distributed as Maha Prasadam or the Great Mercy of the Purusha -idam Remnants of the Sacrific of Purusha, to the faithful from the Lord’s Sacred Vessel. This ritya or rite of Communion with the Lord by consuming His Maha Prasad in the Form of Amrita is clearly related to the ancient Vedic Soma Sacrifice Moksha Ritya / Mass Rite Rituals.

The Lord’s Nectar Kalash / Chalice vessel or pot and His Sacred Water vessel or pot may be confounded due to their similar associations, meanings and ritual uses. The blessing of forgiveness from sin and granting of eternal life is thus confered upon the faithful or initiates who partake of the Nectar, which has flowed from the Body of the Lord. Similar Vedic-related MOKSHA RITYA / MASS RITE Communion RITuals are associated with the Sacred Rivers of Life Kumba Pot Traditions.

Please, everyone, I beg you to consider that the sacred KALASH or CHALICE kumba or vessel contained the Vaishnava and Shaivite, Persian and Buddhist etc. Nectar of Immortality, the Vedic Soma Rasa, which was the ritually the BLOOD OF THE SELF-SACRIFICED COSMIC YAGNA PURUSHA YUPA DHVAJA! How can any informed intelligent person fail to recognise that this is the CHALICE of Lord Jesus Christ’s Moksha Ritya Mass Rite?Wine is Soma Rasa in some of the Mediterranean regional Vaishnava-related Traditions. In other related Traditions, like in Egypt, a kind of beer was used ritually. MEAD or MADHU honey wine was associated with Baladeva and His Bible-related BUCOLIC / GOKULA PARADISE / PARA-DESHA, “flowing with milk and honey” ! In His Paradise, the Surabhi Cows pour-out their milk as offerings and the honey-wine flows from the trees! There Bala-Deva is depicted as ‘intoxicated’ on Varuni or Madhu / Mead the natural honey-wine of Vrindavan Gokula (compare Japanese Gokuraka) that flows from the Sacred Desire Trees.Of course Dionysos -Baccus and Jesus are all associated with wine, as the symbol of the incorruptible. This wine is the all-healing ‘blood’ of the Cosmic Purusha, and the nectar (ambrosia or amrita) or elixer of LIFE / SOMA! Compare Latin SOMA and Sanskrit SOMA as the elixer of LIFE.

Expert Art Historians know that He is the Origin of all of the noble mature ‘Father God’ Images in Classical Greco-Roman Art, and that the earliest known and Traditional Form of Jesus Christ is the same as that of ASKLEPIOS and SERAPIS.

Theologically, accross the Vaishnava Tradition in its many forms, it is said that there is no question of getting the Mercy of Krishna without first getting the Mercy of Lord Baladeva, Sri Krishna’s Second Person. And in the Gaudiya Lineage of Vaishnavism the theological equivalent is asserted, that there is no question of getting the Mercy of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu without first getting the Mercy of Lord Nityananda Balarama!

Can a soul get the Mercy of Krishna without the Mercy of Lord Shiva Who has consumed the Sins of the World? Can a soul be purified by the SACRed SUKLA / SHUKRA Waters of the Holy Descending (JORDAN=DESCENDING) Rivers or Waters of MZRYM / NHRYN / NAHARAIM / NARAYANA the NAZAREAN, without them being received in the matted locks of SHIVA-JESUS first?

Can there be any enlightenment without Jesus as PHO / BHA the AMITA-BHA LIGHT of GOD, and the Light of the World? Is there any LIFE, Sanskrit or Bengali CHAI-TANYA without the Chinese CHI / QI, the JEWS’ CHAYAH CHAI of ‘la CHAYIM’ to LIFE?

Lord AMITA-YUS is JESUS IASAS the Lord of ETERNAL LIFE AYUS of the AYUR VEDA. Is there any LIFE AYUS in any universe without HIM, the LORD OF ETERNAL LIFE? Truly He is both Amita-Bha Pho and Amita-Yus Ayus Life!

Or can we know anything about the Nama Rupa Name-Form of the First Person of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, without the all-merciful intercession of Lord BALADEVA the Second Self of God? HE IS THE NAMA RUPA OF GOD / KRISHNA! “None come to the Father, but by Him” !

 I began my Master’s Thesis related research in the 1960s, and by the late 1980s I had an outline of more than 300 volumes that should have been published on the unified religious pre-history and history of humanity. Still ill, impoverished, and lacking the needed support services, all that I could do was to try to find financial help, text support services and an appropriate academic publisher. The ensuing years were filled with great hardships and struggles. I once had an appropriate Publisher (Amity House of New York), but the Company was bought-out by Element of the UK, which had a Mayavadi New Age Agenda, and I lost the editorial control and publishing rights to my multi-volume Series on the History of Salvific Monotheism (The Name of the Living God) as a result. Now I am only able to post my research-related Notes, Albums and Comments here on facebook. Please take advantage of this astounding information being offered here, to you all FOR FREE!

  1. I suspect there is a lot of observers bias in this…from the start believing there was a common thread thru all religions and then researching it and walla….it is manufactured. Ther is only one name above all others…it is the name of the LORD…Jesus Christ.

  2. Reply from Website Editor VBP:
    Thank you for your comment SS Wright. However by your use of the term ‘suspect’ it seems that you did not read the article. You appear to describe exactly what you have done here with your comment ie. observed without bothering to actually read the evidence and then you added your bias statement that everything here is inaccurate and manufactured.

    In fact you are saying that God has less than your average human being. You and I we both have 3 or more names each and the fact is God has millions of names all Holy and sacred including the Name of Jesus Christ, Balarama, Krishna, Allah, Buddha, Wakan Tanka.

    You question the effort to research a perspective and then you reject and project your own ‘belief system’ using an interpretation based upon a questionable doctrine.

    If you are genuinely interested in these topics I request you to go through the writings and research of Bhakti Ananda Goswami. A genuine discussion on this research is possible only once one has actually investigated its worth. Thank you

  3. Prabhupada taught that Jesus Christ was a jiva tattva not a vishnu tattva in a letter (Letter to: Aniruddha — Los Angeles 14 November, 1968)

  4. There are many ‘Jesus Christs’, which are all very different from eachother. For comparison, ask a variety of Hindus about their version / understanding of Krishna. You can get all kinds of answers. One Hindu’s Krishna is an impersonalist teacher of Mayavadi philosophy, and another is a lusty god of the tantrikas who has thousands of wives and/or girlfriends. Still another Hindu may consider Krishna as an ‘ancient astronaut’ UFO Alien or extra-dimensional ‘god’ or spirit. Someone else might worship Krishna as the Source of All Spiritual and Material Worlds. In this way we cannot speak with people of just one Krishna, when so many other VERSIONS of ‘Krishna’ exist, including the actual IMPOSTERS who are such atheists and/or envious rascals that they dare to impersonate Krishna Himself! Thus we must determine what absolute Krishna, or relative ‘Krishna’ is being discussed, before we can form an informed conclusion about the absolute accuracy of anyone’s statement.

    Srila Prabhupada pointed-out that the reason that a counterfeit of anything appears to have any value, is because the real exists! Thus the power of the False-God or Anti-Christ exists, because there IS a Real God and a Real Cosmic Savior, Jesus Christ. As for the teachings about ‘Jesus Christ’, of the Hindus and Vaishnavas, including Srila Prabhupada, such teachings, which were responding to various merely human versions of Jesus, which were NOT GOD, naturally would not equate such a ‘Jesus Christ’ with Vishnu Tattva.

    One should remember that for centuries Muslims had been in India teaching Hindus (including Vaishnavas) that Jesus was a mere human Prophet of Islam, even less than M*hammed in importance. Then the British Puritanical Protestants came with their own iconoclastic version of Jesus Christ. The Theosophists also came and under Annie Besant taught India another Mayavadi version of Jesus Christ! Finally the New Age Jesus (who is buried in Kashmir) has risen to ascendency in the popular Hindu imagination about ‘Jesus Christ’. So, when the ISKCON Devotees came to Srila Prabhupada with questions about Jesus Christ, which Jesus did they present to him, and which version of Jesus Christ were they asking about? They presented the Theosophical-Society related Jesus of the New Age “Aquarian Gospel” and the ‘Tomb of Jesus’ in Kashmir.

    Srila Prabhupada’s ISKCON leading disciples engaged Srila Prabhupada in a dialogue about THEIR Ahmadiyya MUSLIM and Occult NEW AGE VERSION OF JESUS CHRIST, which could not possibly be considered anything other than an empowered finite jiva soul. So, of course Srila Prabhupada confirmed this. He was talking and writing about the version of ‘Jesus Christ’ known-to his disciples and familiar to his ‘Hindu’ and Vaishnava readers and listeners. Thus he taught correctly that this ‘Jesus Christ’ was conceived as only an empowered jiva soul. After all, how could Baladeva as the Cosmic Yagna Purusha Yupa Dhvaja be buried in a fraudulent tomb in Kashmir that did not even exist at the time of Jesus Christ?

    There was nothing known to Srila Prabhupada’s disciples and exchanged with him in their Socratic Dialogue that was about the authentic theology of the Divine Jesus Christ of cCatholic Apostolic Guru, Shastra and Sadhu. This Deity Jesus was simply not part of their discussion, in their Socratic Dialogue method of learning and teaching. Thus Srila Prabhupada cannot be faulted for anything, because he was teaching according to time and circumstance, to his disciples, and a Hindu (and Vaishnava) audience that was not informed-about or interested-in the Jesus Christ of any of the cCatholic Apostolic Lineage Traditions. When is discussions with Christians, he concentrated on issues of moral theology, primarily flesh abstinence and the four regulative principles.

    Since I am a Catholic, who is in a theological dialogue with other Catholics about the Jesus Christ of the cCatholic Apostolic Guru, Shastra and Sadhu Tradition, I speak and write about the Jesus Christ of the Apostles, Who Was and IS the Second Person of the Godhead. The Historical and theological Jesus Christ of the cCatholic Tradition is definitely Baladeva. He is without doubt the Bala-Deva or YAHU-THEOS VASU-DEVA of the ancient Jews, and the WASU THEOS VASUDEVA of the ancient Egyptians. He is YAHU / VASU Theos / Dios / Deva, the ancient Lord of Jericho in All of His Forms! His worship as GOD can be traced-back at Jericho to about 13,000 BC! He is the Lord Whose symbol has been the Palm since time immemorial.

    The Plow, Club, Helmut-Crown, Moon, White Skin, sacred Blue or Purple Cloth, His White Plume Feather, Turbin, ‘Stick’ and Horn (to blow) and countless other Symbols and Attributes, Pastimes, Paraphenalia, stories, theology, devotees, enemies, Holy Places, Forms and Holy Names identify Him as the Savior God of the entire ancient World. Jesus Christ is His Incarnation as the World-Saving Great Physician and Vedic Cosmic Sacrifice for the sins of the World. It is the job of the Devotees in Jesus Christ’s cCatholic Apostolic Lineages to teach this to the rest of receptive humanity. There are many existing Sampradaya Lineages, called RITES, from Jesus Christ. It is the job of the Gaudiya Vaishnavas to teach receptive humanity about Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Nityananda-Balarama.
