The Vedas and other ancient scriptures… describe the sky as the “Kala Purusha” the “Divine cosmic being”, personification of time, being the zodiac a representation of his different body parts. The whole original Bhakti Buddhist Other-power Tradition has diffused out of Vaishnava centers and is full of Vaishnava doctrines and practices.
“In a 17th century printing by Christian QBLHist Athanisius Kircher, (Figure 4 -Below)) we see the triune halo representing God in the form of the Christian Trinity concept atop the wheels of concepts emanating outward from a core symbolising the cosmos of the QBLHistic world of Assiyah. Here we see Adam Kadmon, the cosmic template of man’s physical body and the mind of God that can possess any living person, depicted as a child-like Christ, whose limbs reach across the cosmos of Assiyah, but who is yet bounded within the outer 3 realms of the other QBLHistic worlds.
Here we see the outer edge of the comsos of Assiyah, to which the reach of the child-like Adam Kadmon extends, is marked by the wheel of the zodiac, and that the “Microcosmos” within the young Christ’s reach is comprised of the 7 planetary orbits, symbolising the 6 cardinal directions plus the forward motion of time. Below these are 3 worlds surrounding Malkuth, the Kingdom, which signify the 3 essential elements of Alchemy, salt, sulphur and mercury, signifying, alike frozen, fluid or vapid, the conditional states of matter as symbolic of the 3 spatial dimensions. Malkuth, at the centre of which are Adam Kadmon’s genitals, is shown in black.
Beneath the feet of Adam Kadmon, in the 3 “upper” worlds of ha QBLHistic 4 worlds, are three groups of three aspects. These signify the 7 heavens and 7 arch-angels of Beriah, the 12 permutations of the 3 Tetragrammtons, names of God, of Yetzirah, and the 3 layers of the greater light, Ayin, Ayin Soph, and Ayin Soph Aur of Atziluth, the upper-most world. In this depiction we see the zodiac circle as surrounding Adam Kadmon as alike an oroborus or aura, signiying the realm beyond God, when God is lowered into a form of body in the cosmos of Assiyah.”
Figure 3 -The Jewish Kabbalistic Adam Kadmon: Note that His Body is the extant of the Cosmic Egg and the Symbol of the Supreme Lord and Abode is above this Divine Cosmic Man’s Head and that His CROWN is depicted as the Highest node of the Sephiroth or Mystical Tree of Life and Divine Emanation.
“The symbol of Primordial Man, the first being to emerge with the creation of the cosmos is common to a number of religious and philosophical traditions. The Upanishads describe a primal man composed of the very elements which were to become the world. According to the Upanishads this “gigantic divine being” is both infinitely far and deposited near the innermost recesses of the human heart. Indeed, in the Hindu tradition, the Primordial Man is identified both with the entire Universe and the soul or essence of all things.” Source
