PART ONE: Christ Mass Advent Offering with Vaishnava References to the Theology of Baladeva the Second Person of the Godhead

Standard

imagesIn the Vaishnava Tradition of India, the wide-spread lore of the Messianic Second Coming of Jesus Christ is found in the Prophetic Revelation of the Vishnu Yashas -Kalki Tradition.  As in Vaishnavism the Name of the Father is revealed in the Son, and vice versa, it is astonishing that Christians, Vaishnavas and other ‘Hindus’ have not generally recognised that Kalki Avatara is also the ‘Second Coming’ of Vishnu Yashas or Yasho-Narayana, and thus He is directly ‘cognate’ with the Judeo-cCatholic Tradition of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ as the Divine Savior-King and ‘Son of David’.  The Judeo-cCatholic (Apostolic Parampara) Divine Savior Jesus Christ first appears as the Suffering Sacrifice Deliverer Messiah Son of Joseph (Yagna Purusha Yupa Dhvaja, Who takes away the sins of the World), and then He appears as the Triumphant King Deliverer Messiah Son of David (Kalki Avatara). In ancient Egypt KRISHNA-VISHNU-PARAMATMA was worshiped as HERU-AUSU-ATUM, the Trinity of Greek Heliopolitan Monotheism. The Jews worshiped This Same Trinity as ELI-YAHU-ADON. Ausu or Osiris was the Yahu of the Jews and the VASU-DEVA (Jewish TOBA-YAHU) of the Vaishnavas. He was called WASU THEOS in Thebes Egypt, which City was also called Dios-Polis-Magnus or Maha Deva Purusha. In each of these ancient related Bhakti Traditions, the Second Person of the Godhead is the Savior God Who descends into the dark entropic material worlds to save all of the beings that have ‘fallen’ there, who cannot get back-out by their own endeavour!

THE GLORIES OF LORD NITYANANDA BALARAMA

PURPORTS BY HIS DIVINE GRACE A.C.BHAKTIVEDANTA

SWAMI SRILA PRABHUPADA

TEXT 41 PURPORT

(Page 165)

“Sankarsana, the second expansion, is

Vasudeva’s personal expansion for pastimes,

and since He is the reservoir of all living

entities, He is sometimes called jiva.”

TEXT 41 PURPORT

(Pages 174-5)

” In the spiritual sky there is a spiritual

creative energy technically called

suddha-sattva, which is a pure spiritual

energy that sustains all the Vaikuntha planets

with the full opulences of knowledge, wealth,

prowess etc. All these actions of

suddha-sattva display the potencies of

Maha-Sankarshana, who is the ultimate

reservoir of all individual living entities

who are suffering in the material world. When

the cosmic creation is annihilated, the living

entities, who are indestructible by nature,

rest in the body of Maha Sankarsana.

Sankarsana is sometimes therefore called the

total jiva.”

TEXT 42

(below on Page 175)

” There the personal feature of Balarama

called Maha-Sankarshana is the shelter of the

spiritual energy. He is the primary cause, the

cause of all causes.”

TEXT 45

” There is one marginal potency, known as the

jiva. Maha-Sankarsana is the shelter of all

jivas.”

TEXT 46

” Sankarsana is the original shelter of the

purusha, from whom this world is created and

in whom it is dissolved.”

TEXT 73

(Below Page 183)

” A part of a part of a whole is called a

‘kala’. Sri Balarama is the counter-form of

Lord Govinda.”

TEXT 74

” Balarama’s own expansion is called

Maha-Sankarsana, and His fragment, the purusa,

is counted as a kala, or a part of a plenary

portion.”

(Below Page 184)

TEXT 75

” I say that this kala is Maha-Vishnu. He is

the Maha-purusa, who is the source of the

other purusas and who is all pervading.”

TEXT 81

(Below Page 185)

” That fragment of the Maha-purusha who

appears for the purpose of creation,

maintenance and annihilation is called an

incarnation.”

TEXT 82

” That Maha-purusa is identical with the

Personality of Godhead. He is the original

incarnation, the seed of all others, and the

shelter of everything.”

TEXT 83

” The purusa is the primary incarnation of the

Supreme Personality of Godhead.”…

PURPORT

” The two categories of avataras are empowered

devotees and tad-ekatma-rupa (the Lord

Himself). An example of tad-ekatma-rupa is

Sesa, …”
