HARI: A Most Essential Revealed Name of the One True God

Standard
vishnuHARI is one of the most essential Revealed Names of the One True God, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. This Holy Name can be found throughout the World in cognate forms such as in the African Niger related Languages OLU, the Egyptian HERU, Roman SOLE, Greek HELI, KYRIE  and KOUROS etc., Biblical Hebrew ELI, ALI, ARI, ORI, URI etc., Persian HVARE, Sumerian ILU and Indic HARI, HARA, SURA etc. HARI is the Lord’s Name as Rasa Raja the Lord of the HEART, GOD-WHO-IS-LOVE! Even the words HEART, CORE and CARDIO (KARDIA) are derived from the Lord’s HR / KR / CR Holy Name as the LOVER and CHARISMAtic / KRISHNA ATTRACTOR of all souls!
The HEART is the Throne-room or Seat of HARI, the King of all Rasa flavors of Divine Love (Lobha).  Thus the Heart is the HARI-DAYA or DIAS / DIVAN (Throne) of HARI, the Raja / Regent/ Rex (Hebrew RAZAN) KING of LOVE.  HRI-DAYA / KARDIA / CARDIO is a contraction of HARI-DAYA, and HRID / HEART is another contraction of HRIDAYA. So these HEART words are all related to the primal Revelation that HARI the LORD of LOVE is the Lord Who is seated in every affective loving HEART and in the creative and moral Heart of all of the Cosmos!  CHARISMA (KRISHNA ‘Attractive’), KOUROS (Greek ‘Youth’) and CORE (the heart or center of anything) are also related words/names.  There are also many ‘Love’ related derivative and associative meanings to the primal HR Holy Name of GOD!  I once wrote a detailed explanation of this for one of my Columns in the online Hare Krishna World ‘newspaper’.

The Holy Name of Jesus is usually explained as derived from the Hebrew compound Theophoric Name of the promised Messiah, Yahu-Shua. This Name is a compound of the TWO DEITY NAMES YAHU and SHU (SHUA).  SHU is a Name of the Lord as the SAVior of the whole World / Cosmos. This Holy Name appears in the Afro-Egyptian Tradition, the Greek and Biblical Hebrew Traditions of the Rhodian School Worshipers of Helios (HERU, ELI, HARI) and Dionysos (AUSU-BL, YAHU-BAL, BALADEVA).  Jesus is the Universal SAVior / SOter, SHU, SHUA (SV=SU Save, Shua) see the SHU, SHUD purifying manumission words and names in Sanskrit related to sacrificial sanctification and REDEMPTION!  Lord Baladeva is SHU the Redeemer! He is SUKLA or SHUKRA BALA, the Purifier and Sanctifier of ALL.  In Egypt He is both SHU and SKR ‘SOKAR’ the Lord of SACRI-fice, all that is SACRED, all SACRAments!  Thus as SUKRA-BALA, Lord Baladeva is all-powerful to REDEEM and SAVE the entire cosmos!  He alone makes all things and persons pure or SACRED via His Once and All-sufficient Self-Sacrifice as the Original Rig Vedic Cosmic Purusha! 
Lord Baladeva is also called VISHNU or VASU-DEVA. VISH and VAS are the same root Name of God and are definitely the HEBREW HOLY NAME YISH or YAHU, meaning TO BE, TO EXIST, WHO IS WAS and WILL BE!  See the Hebrew Theophoric Names YESHI-YAHU, YISHMA / VISHNU and TOBA-YAHU / DEVA-VASU VASU-DEVA!  YAHU is the Afro-Egyptian AUSU of Heliopolis, and AUSU was called WASU in Theban Tradition. WASU-THEOS is again VASU-DEVA.  The Greeks called HIM (AUSU) OUSIOS or OSIRIS and identified Him with DIONYSOS, ASCLEPIOS-IASAS and the YAHU-BL of the Biblical Semites!  In the centuries just before the Appearance of Jesus Christ, the Greeks’ World-Saving Great Physician ASCLEPIOS IASAS (YAHU-SHUA,YASHAS, JESUS) was worshiped as SERAPIS by the Egyptians and ESHMUN by some Semites, Aesculapius by the Romans and under many other Names throughout the World.  In the East He was worshiped at the great Ayur Vedic Indo-Buddhist Vedic-Vaishnava related Universities as ANANTA-CHARAKA, LORD BALADEVA in His ‘Hidden Incarnation’ as the World-Saving ‘Wandering Mendicant Healer’ the Great Physician Charaka! 
So if A=B and B=C, then A=C!  Thus Baladeva as VASU-DEVA and SUKRA-Bala (the Sacred World-Saving Great Physician, Whose primal Rig Vedic Self-SACRifice ‘takes away the sins of the World’) IS WASU THEOS / AUSU DIOS / TOBA-YAHU, SERAPIS, ASCLEPIOS-IASAS etc., YAHU-SHUA (JESUS) and ANANTA-BALARAMA (BALADEVA) as the All-Saving Redeeming (Purifying SHU, SOter, SHUD etc.) Great Physician CHARAKA.
Egyptian SERAPIS = Greek ASCLEPIOS-IASAS (JESUS) = Biblical YAHU-SHUA (JESUS) = BALADEVA (Vasu-Deva, Vishnu YASHAS) as ANANTA-CHARAKA the Cosmos-Saving Rig Vedic Purusha and Great Physician. One of the Names of the last Incarnation of Vishnu in the Kali Yuga is Vishnu YASHAS.  YA is a mystical NAME OF PURUSHA and SHA, SHAS is from the root SHU as in SUKLA meaning to purify by SACRIfice, to REDEEM or MOKSHA / RELEASE from condemnation!  Thus one rendering of the Sanskrit Holy Name YA-SHAS is identical to that of the Biblical Hebrew Holy Name YAHU-SHUA…YA / YAHU REDEEMS, YA / YAHU is Salvation, YA / YAHU / VASU-Deva / VISHNU PURUSHA Saves!
So YES!  HARI / HERU / OLU / ELI etc.and YAHU-SHUA / IASAS / JESUS / YASHAS etc. ARE HOLY NAMES OF GOD, IN WHICH ALL OF THE ANCIENT AFRICAN, INDO-EUROPEAN AND SEMITIC  TRIBES OF HUMANITY WERE UNITED, AND THESE PRIMAL HOLY NAMES WERE ALSO IN THE ANCIENT OCEANIC AND WESTERN HEMISPHERE LANGUAGES AND RELIGIONS TOO! 
HARI bol!  JESUS ki jaya! …and a blessed Holy Week to All!

  1. bless the Lord! greetings to you. i’ve been a Christian all my life and have been tossed to and fro with every wind of doctrine. it wasn’t until 5 years ago that i began practicing hatha yoga and discovered the term bhakti yoga. this led me to search out the local Hare Krsna temple in Rogers Park, Chicago. to my amazement they taught many truths that i had come to embrace through my years of sifting.

    a few examples: reincarnation, the masculine and feminine forms of God, vegetarianism, etc. i was also greatly impressed with the disciplic succession and bhagavad gita “as it is” as i have always been fond of the office of the pope dating back to St. Peter and have been concerned with correct translations of scripture. i started attending the sunday love feasts and learning more about the philosophy and believed that they were really on to something. for a long time i have considered myself a proponent of Gaudiya Vaishnavism while still holding on for dear life to my long time convictions that Jesus Christ is the second person of the Godhead. many devotees have encouraged me in this over the years and many have not. Srila Prabhupada’s teachings on the matter have always seemed very unclear to me. this has been devastating. to the point that i would not visit the temple for months at a time and instead celebrate daily mass and pray the rosary and read about the lives of the saints, etc.

    i’ve felt called to franciscan spirituality for as long as i can remember. some of the main hindrances for me concerning Catholic theology is the doctrines of eternal damnation, the resurrection of the body, and a future return of Christ. if i whole-heartedly believed these things i can guess i’d be a priest by now. so i’ve been torn. it wasn’t until i discovered the teachings of Bhakti Ananda Goswami that i finally got a breath of fresh air. still though, i have many questions. one being- when can i visit the franciscan ecumenical retreat? :)))))

    at this point in my walk i know that a correspondence with Bhakti Ananda Goswami and/or Brannon Parker would be priceless and could even be the only way i can move forward at this juncture. i’e been wanting to reach out for a couple years now and have always been afraid of not making things clear enough or even coming off confusing. i pray this message scratches the surface of my longing for some direction in spiritual matters. peace and love in Him, tj

    • Jesus ki jaya! Hare Krishna! Dear tj, Thank you for your kind and encouraging letter. It is so helpful to me to get a positive response from a devoted soul, such as yourself, because I am continually struggling to be of some service to others in their own struggles. Since you may be a Catholic (?) of particularly Franciscan Spirituality, I would very much appreciate getting your good association and being able to serve cooperatively with you in this Gospel Great Commission! Are you on facebook and can you private message me there? I have hundreds of Posts / Comments, Notes and many Albums with Montages of Evidence on my facebook Pages and Groups. Many of your questions and concerns have already been addressed by me there.

      I am looking forward to communicating with you. Writing and speaking very much both present physical difficulties for me, so I cannot carry-on hardly any private correspondence any more, and I am not supposed to talk more than 1/2 hour a day, due to high spinal polio and old neck injury related swallowing problems. So we could speak on the phone (I have a flat rate unlimited calling in the USA), but we would need to keep it short. Except for private issues, I prefer to answer all questions etc. publicly so that others can benefit too. Because there is so much demand on my time, I ask that everyone choose the most important question that troubles them, for me to address. I endeavor to remove obstacles to people’s faith and devotional service. 🙂 ❤

      Jesus Christ's Divine Peace and Love to You!

      Your aspiring servant, Bhakti Ananda Goswami (aka Brother David Sherman)
