HARI 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!
