HARI, Krishna, is the Sourse of all spiritual and material worlds. Our local Sun Planet is just one of HARI’s infinite manifestations. When our Sun is considered a Form of Hari / God, our Sun is called Surya-Narayana. If we study the 1008 Holy Names of Surya Narayana, we can understand that Surya is a Form of HARI or Narayana, Krishna-Vishnu. However this Solar-Globe Planetary Form of His is NOT His ‘Original’ or ‘Supreme’ Form. Scholars have thus been mistaken in their identification of HARI (Krishna) as part of their imagined Global Class of Supreme Solar Gods.

HARI’s Discus (Chakra / Cycle Circle) says His H R (or HL) Holy Name throughout the ancient World, but it is NOT merely a mundane ‘sun symbol’! His HR / HALO-AURA or Corona / Crown identifies Him as the Source of the Brahma-Jyoti Light of the entire Cosmos. It is also His KALA TIME-WHEEL of the time-cycle HORO-SCOPE of all of the Cosmos, and the HOURS, and HORAE seasons of every CALendar.

His Discus also represents the eastern ORigin and HORizon, and the WHOLE of everything. But most importantly, as the Original Supreme Personality of Godhead, HARI is God-Who-Is-Love, the Lord of all HEARTS! Even the word ‘HEART’ is ultimately related-to Sanskrit HRID, a contraction of HRI-DAYA or HARI-DAYA, meaning the DIAS or Throne of HARI, Who as RASA-RAJA is the LORD of the HEART! (see Greek KARdia, English CARdio.) All Glories to Sri Hari, our God-Who-Is-Love, Who is the Lord of ALL Hearts, and Who is eager to drive our life’s chariot for us, if we will only ask Him to! His Love is the real Jyoti Joy-giving Sunshine of our lives! May the Supreme Truth of His Love conquer every human heart, bringing the Peace and Joy of His Heavenly Home, to our Earthly Homes at last! Amun Amen Amin Aum Shanti Shanti Shanti…

Surya Sahasranaam: 1008 Holy Names of Surya-Narayana, by Rishi Veda Vyas

  1. Bhakti Ananda Goswami Here are a few links regarding the Jewish Mysticism of the 72 Angels with the Names of God…

    An in-depth analysis of these ancient Hebrew Biblical ‘Theophoric Names’ reveals many of them to be related-to the Sanskrit Language Holy Names of HARI and HARA (Krishna-Vishnu and Baladeva-Shiva), the Afro-Egyptian HERU-HOR and the Semitic ELI-EL.

    Lists and invocation Litanies of the Holy Names of God and Shakti (Shekinah) from around the World should be respectfully compared despite all sectarian objections to the contrary, because such careful and reverential comparison reveals that all of humanity does indeed WORSHIP THE SAME SUPREME FATHER GOD, the SAME HOLY MOTHER, the SAME UNIVERSAL SAVIOR and the SAME OMNIPRESENT HOLY SPIRIT!



    YAHU Compound Theophoric Names (By-Names of YAHU / ‘JAH’) Just as in hundreds of the Holy Names of Krishna or Vishnu, most of the Compound Names of YAHU end in the YAHU NAME indicated by a final YA / AH / A or H-u vowel, semi-vowel or ‘Soft Breathing’ character. This YA, AH , AHU , A is a mystical Name of Purusha. It is NOT just a ‘masculine suffix’ or ‘determinative’. In African, Greek and Roman Deity Names this SAME NAME is the –AUSU, WASU, -OS or –US Holy Name of the Supreme Giver (Masculine, Purusha) Being WHO IS. AUSU / WASU / YAHU is VASU DEVA or PUR-USHA. Note that there are other such Hebrew YAHU Compound Theophoric Names in which the YAHU element begins the Compound, as in YEHO (JEHO- or JO- etc.) Holy Names.

    The following Names of YAHU (and other Holy Names of YAHU) identify Him with His MANY local Names in His many shrines. Study the Greek Septuagint and Apocrypha to compare how the ancient Greek speaking and reading Jews translated these same Biblical Hebrew (and other) Theophoric YAHU Names into the Greek of their time!!! This same Holy Name may be seen as the MASCULINE ‘ONE WHO IS’ element in all of these other Deity Names! These are the many Holy Names of HERU-AUSU (‘HOR-US’), Helios, Zeus-Jupiter-Amun, Krishna-Vishnu and Shiva, and Avalokiteshvara in Pure Land Buddhism. Thus VASU-deva / AUSU (WASU at Thebes) is in fact ALL OF THESE AFRICAN, INDO-EUROPEAN and SEMITIC ‘DEITIES’!!! YAHU or VASUDEVA is also the Second Self of ELI / HELI / HERU / OLU / SOLE / HARI etc. Thus He is included in the Compound Names as Hebrew ELI-EL, Afro-Egyptian HERU-HOR and the Eastern ‘Hindu’ Vaishnava-Shaivite HARI-HAR. As the Second Person of HERU / HELI / ELI, HARI, YAHU is also included in such Holy Names as HERU-AUSU (HORUS), SOLE-US, HELI-OS, KOUR-OS, ELI-YAHU, ARE-YAHU, ELO-AH, ALL-AH, HVAREH, HARAH, HARIH, SUREH, SURYA, HARYAH, HRIH etc. He is HARI-VASU / KRISHNA-VISHNU or KRISHNA-BALADEVA. YAHU (the YA, A, AH Name) and YESHI or YISH in Hebrew has the same meaning as the A, AH, USH, VAS and VISH Holy Name in Sanskrit. To BE, EXIST, to DWELL, WHO IS (in the Masculine Form, meaning PURUSHA).

    In Egypt these would be the By-Names of HERU-HOR in Their countless shrines. In Greece these would be the By-Names of KOUR-OS HELI-OS of Rhodes, and later those of KOUROS ZEUS or JUVENALI JUPITER in Their countless shrines. In India these would be the local By-Names of HARI or HARA, Krishna-Vishnu (Hari)or Baladeva-Shiva (Hara).

    Chanted note the YA or A, or AH on the ends of Sri Krishna’s Names. This is NOT just a generc ‘masculine’ suffix or a poetic convention for chanting! It is the Mystical Name of the ADI PURUSHA, the Original and Supreme GIVER, the PLENUM / PURNAM ‘FULL’ SOURCE OF ALL!

    Please note that the Sanskrit sound of the ‘e’ in these Names is the sound of English ‘A’ as in the Sanskrit Maha Mantra HARE. The short ‘A’ in Sanskrit is like the A in the English word ‘Another’. The Sanskrit long ‘A’ has the SAME sound as the short A, but it is ‘held’ longer. When a Holy Name of Krishna-Vishnu ends in the ‘E’ letter as in Krishna DAMANE (Jupiter DOMINUS, Lord of the Holy Dham), the E is also a variant of the final YA or A, AH etc. indicating the Supreme Masculine (Giver) Being-WHO-IS.

    Please note that in the 1000 Names of Vishnu and the 108 Names of Nrsimhadeva and all other Sanskrit Holy Name Litanies of Krishna-Vishnu this same rule applies, and the A (E), AH, YA, YAHU ending is ALWAYS the Mystical Name of the MASCULINE ADI PURUSHA. Of course in Pure Land Buddhism the Supreme Transcendental Person of the TRIKAYA is called the ADI PURUSHA (and OTHER NAMES OF KRISHNA-VISHNU) in the original Sanskrit Pure Land Buddhist Sources, like the Saddharmapundarika!
