Question: Do you think there can be some reference to Meru/axis mundi in the image above?
Answer from Bhakti Ananda Goswami: Yes, in the sense that the Devas and A-Suras are arrayed on either side of the Lord, facing Him. However the Lord in the center is Zervan Time-Eternity with reference to Sol/ Helios as Phanes / Brahma on His Chest or Abdomen (From His Navel). In Egypt the multi-faced and armed Helios Phanes/Brahma appears at the beginning of the Cosmos seated on a Lotus that has grown from the hieroglyph for NHR / NHL (NILUS NILE) or NHRYN/MZRYM (NAHARAIM / NARAYANA). The Iconographic short-hand for this is a Solar face on the belly of God as Time-Eternity. In some late Roman Zervan / Saturn TIME Icons, the Solar Lion Face of God may be on Saturn’s / Time’s Chest. Note that Zervan has a bearded or leonid face and Wings / Extra Limbs.
The Sun-Lotus or Jewel-Lotus Icons world-wide all connect-back to the primal Divine Love Tradition worship of Rhoda-Nymphia and Helios Kouros on Their Sacred Isle of Rhodes, which was also called Nymphia, which means LOTUS / PADME! The Supreme Shakti of the Lord as Meghistos Kouros (Supreme Eternal Youth Krishna) on Rhodes was also called Kore (Supreme Eternal Maiden) Asteria / Star and Nymphia Lotus-Virgin/Maiden. Thus Kore-Rhoda/Rose-Asteria/Star-Nymphia/Lotus/Maiden was the Supreme Beloved of Kouros-Rhodos-Asteros-Nymphos. The Great Heliopolitan Temple City-State Asyla Federations of the ancient world all had this worship of Rhoda-Kouros at their Divine Love Mystical Heart, because the Heliopolitan Traditions all ultimately historically derived from the Rhodian Divine LoveTradition. Thus today’s Great Bhakti Traditions, like Vaishnavism, Catholicism and Pure Land Buddhism, share a common historical origin in this one Divine Love Tradition.
Question: Couldn’t this image reflect an ancient alien descending to earth?
Answer from Bhakti Ananda Goswami: The whole Ancient Aliens Sitchin Nibiru thing is complete nonsense. Unfortunately an entire generation has now become completely confused by the many TV shows and books pushing this ancient UFO aliens idea. This is a depiction of Zervan. Like His much later Roman equivalent of Saturnus, He has the Head of Brahma or Helios/Surya on His Belly, because He is the God from whose naval the Lotus Whorl of the Universe grows, with Brahma or Helios Phanes in it. Zervan has extra limbs which may be any combination of arms or wings and hands. To His Sacred Right the Good Ahura Mazda and the good gods receive their universal empowerment. To His left the evil Ahriman receives his jurisdiction over all things adversarial to good. The Zoroastrians were dualists who made Ahriman the equal and opposite of Ahura Mazda.
In the Judeo-cCatholic Tradition, there is No such Being who is equal and opposite to God. Satan is just a created being like his related ‘Hindu’ counterpart rahu-KETU. He has no power over God or the Son of God or the Holy Spirit of God. However, he can have power over other created beings.
The Ancient Aliens UFO New Age Movement reduces Krishna or God to a mundane exterrestrial demi-god like UFO alien. It is the anti-thesis of the transcendent-mediating-immanent spiritual cosmology of the real Krishna of the Vaishnava Scriptures. This is why I am so opposed to it. The whole Chariots of the Gods New Age UFO enterprise is profoundly atheistic at its historical core and in its development.
The Ancient Aliens / UFO Movement is a sub-set of the historical Western Esoteric Tradition related New Age Movement Ascended Masters Tradition. As such it is based on both Neo-Gnosticism and complete distortions fabrications and lies about ancient history and religious traditions. The global promotion of this muddle has had enormous amounts of money and power behind it, and since the end of World War II it has used popular media very effectively to spread it various messages. Thus people who have been exposed to these messages will often accept them as true or at least somehow plausible.
