The best Egyptology Experts, who put together the Pharaohs of the Sun Museum Exhibit that we did my Lecture Tour of, confirmed in the official Literature that accompanied their Exhibit that Akhenaten was a REVIVALIST of the much more ancient Heliopolitan Tradition of HERU the ‘Elder’. This is what I have said since the late 1960s! HERU IS THE AFRICAN SUPREME FATHER GOD OLU AND THE INDIC HARI. It is this Supreme God HERU Who was also the Supreme GOD ELI (ALI, ARI, ORI, URI) OF THE BIBLICAL SEMITES and the HELIOS OF THE GREEKS OF THE MONOTHEISTIC CULTUS OF RHODES. He was SOLE to the Romans and HVARE to the Persians. To the Sumerians He was ILU. Thus He was the original, primal and Supreme Lord of the Africans, the Indo-Europeans and the Semites!!!
Factually He can be identified in Indigenous Religions the Far East, Oceana and the Western Hemisphere too! How is it possible? This astounding truth is only possible because Sri HARI / KRISHNA is the ORIGINAL, SUPREME PERSONALITY OF GODHEAD OF ALL HUMANITY! In His Bhagavad-gita As It IS, Sri Krishna says that He IS Dharma/Yama, Kubera, Indra, Surya, Brahma, Senapati/Skanda, etc. and in the Mediterranean Heliopolitan Tradition HERU IS respectively Anubis(Dharmaraja), Kephra (Kubera), Zeus Fulgar (Indra), the ‘Solar Helios’ (Surya Narayana), Helios Phanes (Brahma) and Ares-Mars (Skanda) etc.
The ‘Lila Avataras’ and Incarnations of Krishna-Vishnu are also found in the Rhodian Heliopolitan Tradition. Helios Delphinos is Matsya Avatara. Helios Kelemos is Kurma Avatara. Helios / ELI-YAHU as the Leontocephalos (Lion-Headed) Lord of Time and Eternity is the Vaishnava Nara-Hari (Haryeh) as KALAH, the Shaivite Kalah-Bairava, the Buddhist Kalah-Bairab, the Jewish ARE-YAHU and ARI-EL, the Persian Zervan, Eli-Yahu Tzabaoth as the slave-delivering Lord of the Exodus, Zeus Chronos, Jupiter Saturnus and the Afro-Egyptian Lion-Headed Form of HERU-AMUN-RA. He was worshiped in KUSH and at NAGA MEROE Africa as the Lion-Headed Supreme Lord APADEMAK.
The Tradition of Parasurama pervaded the ancient Mediterranean and Europe as the legendary Cadmus-Danae-Europa Cycle of City-Foundation Stories. The Story of Sita-Rama was at the core of the Mysteries of KORE and DEMETER. The Divine Love of Sri Sri Radha-Krishna was at the historical and theological revelatory HEART of the Bridal Mysticism Rhodian Tradition of RHODA and MEGHISTOS KOUROS HELIOS. The Tradition of BALADEVA as VASUDEVA or VISHNU, and as the Second Self of Sri HARI / KRISHNA was contained in the Afro-Helleno-Semitic Rhodian Tradition of AUSU / YAHU / WASU-THEOS / VASUDEVA as OSIRIS-Dionysos.
The Tradition of the Self-Sacrificed Rig Vedic Cosmic Purusha was at the core of all of the ancient sacrificial systems as that of the PER (Egyptian), YIR (Biblical Hebrew), or POL (Greek) of the POLIEUS / PURUSHA, Whose Sacramental Social Body was the original basis of all Theo-centric High Civilization. The NAZAREAN BAPTISM CULTUS of the Egyptian NHL (NILE) MZRYM and Semitic NZRYN / NAHARAIM was the Holy River of Baptism (Ganga) Cultus of NARAYANA (Jupiter MARIMUS). The Cultus of the All-Healing and Cosmos-Saving Great Physician Asclepios IASAS / JESUS was the Tradition of Lord Baladeva as the Ayur Vedic related Great Physician Ananta-Charaka. The PTAH Cultus of Helios / HERU-AUSU of Memphis was the Tradition of HERU that became Pure Land BUDDHISM (BUDH = PTAH).
Even the Adversaries of the Supreme Lord HARI were the same! In Egypt PP / Apep was SIN the enemy of the soul and the Supreme Lord HERU. PP ‘Apep’ is clearly the Sanskrit PAPA / SIN. SETU the Cosmic Enemy of HERU was KETU as EVIL, the Cosmic Enemy of HARI and the Devas. Compare Hebrew CHAT(U) and RA-AH RAHU as evil. Compare KETU and SETU as Cosmic CATABOLISM and CATASTROPHE etc. Compare the Indic Tradition RAHUS who cause demonic possession, disease and death with the ‘demons’ crushed under foot by HERU-AUSU and cast-out by Jesus!
The deeply meaningful historical and profound theological / revelatory connections between these most ancient and GLOBAL Great Bhakti Traditions are endless, and they are ALL going to be revived and re-connected in the future through the non-sectarian HARI NAMA SANKIRTAN MOVEMENT OF SRI SRI GAURA-NITAI!
