The many Sacred Traditions of Holy Basil / Ocimum Sanctum or TULASI in cCatholic Apostolic Christianity confirm that Jesus Christ is Vishnu Tattva…directly GOD HIMSELF. Just web search for examples of the sacred stories, doctrines and practices associated in ancient cCatholicism with the ‘Elevation’, ‘Feast’, ‘Exaltation’, ‘Triumph’, or other veneration or rituals of the Holy Cross. Read the many stories about Saint Helena’s pilgrimage to the Holy Land and how she discovered the Hill of Golgotha and the True Cross because of the Sacred Basil growing there! Why was this Plant, ‘Rhoda’s Mint’ or Holy Basil associated with the Story of Jesus Christ’s Crucifixion?
The Greek’s Hyssopus (Hebrew EZOB) or All-Heal-Heracleum (the Ancient’s Herb of Immortality) at the foot of the Cross was Sacred to The Great Physician Form of ELI-YAHU-ADON the Supreme Godhead of the proto-Catholic Afro-Helleno-Semitic Bhakti Divine Love Tradition. In Indian Vaishnavism and in the East in Pure Land Buddhism, Holy Basil (TULASI, TULSI) and related Members of Her family of Sacred Labitae (MINT) are identified with the Supreme Lord, HARI and especially His Manifestations and Incarnation as the All-Healing GREAT PHYSICIAN. Thus one Ayur Vedic Medical Tradition associates TULASI with the TEARS of the Great Physician DHANVANTARI, Who delivers the SOMA ‘Nectar of Imortality’ to the Godly Devas in His KALASH / CHALICE! Another Bhakti Tradition associates Tulasi with the Herb of Immortality delivered by HANUMAN to save LAKSMAN HIMSELF! In fact, Sita, Rama, Lakshman, Hanuman and other Forms of the Lord and Devotees of the Lord were almost universally associated with some Tulasi related Herb of the Sacred Labiatae (Aromatic Mint) Family throughout the Ancient World.
Variously Tulasi related ‘sub-species’ are identified AS TULASI and called by one of Her more than 108 Holy Names throughout the Indian Sub-Continent and the East. Everywhere She is identified with the Sattvic Tradition worship of the One True God. She is also consistently associated with the resurrection of the dead, the salvation of the finite jiva-soul-self, and the beatification of the Saints in the Highest Heaven! Thus Tulasi is considered the Queen of the Highest Paradise of Go-Loka VRINDA-VANA, which VANA / FOREST of TULASI / VRINDA is Named for Her! In This She may also be identified with MARY Rhoda Mystica of Her Rosary, and as the QUEEN OF THE MAY and Humanity’s MOTHER MOST TOLErant, the only Refuge of the killers of Christ or His Priests (Brahmins)!
Who was and IS Jesus Christ? Was He just a wise man, a guru, healer, a sage or prophet? Was He only a Holy Spirit-filled inspired or revolutionary thinker that challenged the religious hypocrites of His time? Why was He WORSHIPED by Africans, Greeks, Romans, Jews of various ethnicities and other Semites, and others from far away Persia etc.? Why did the Mediterranean Regional Traditions of the World-saving Great Physician Asclepios-IASAS (Afro-Egyptian and Jewish SERAPIS) become Apostolic cCatholic Christianity within a century of Jesus Christ’s Appearance? In India and the East Asclepios (Serapis) was identified with Baladeva as the Ayur Vedic Revelator and Great Physician ANANTA-CHARAKA. Now it is time for the whole of Humanity to recognize that JESUS CHRIST IS THAT SAME LORD. HE IS VISHNU TATTVA, the RIG VEDIC SELF-SACRIFICED PURUSHA, the VIRATA RUPA APPEARING AS ANANTA-BALADEVA-CHARAKA, THE COSMO-SAVING GREAT PHYSICIAN, WHO ‘Takes away the sins of the World’!
Happy are we, who are called to His Prasadam Supper! We are not worthy to receive Him, but through HIS GRACE ALONE we may all join together as one humble Family of God, in the Love Feast of His Cosmic Self-Sacrifice!
