The Hierogamos Mystery Traditions are Ancient Mediterranean Vaishnavism

Standard
Tanabata means “evening of the seventh” and originates from the Chinese Qixi Festival, celebrating the yearly reunion of the cowherd and the weaving maiden, or in this case, Hikoboshi and Orihime. According to the legend, weaving maiden Orihime, the daughter of the Heavenly King, married Hikoboshi the cowherd and both subsequently neglected their duties.  This festival is directly related to the ancient Radha Krsna Vaishnava Tradition.

Goloka and/or Gokula?

I am compelled by the truth to point out that the GOKULA / BUCOLIC BOUKOLION of the COW (GAU, GO) BOU (BHUMI) Lotus PARADISE ISLE of Rhoda-Kouros RADHA-KRISHNA was the Supreme Heavenly and Earthly Abode of Kouros Helios KRISHNA and Kore Rhoda RADHA of the primal and Supreme Bridal Mysticism Tradition of prehistoric Rhodes in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Modern scholars of Judaism and the “Song of Songs” related Biblical Judeo-Catholic Bridal Mysticism Tradition have long recognized that this Biblical Divine Love Tradition had to be somehow related to the HIEROGAMOS MYSTERY TRADITIONS of the ancient Medterranean Region. Such Sacred Marriage Mystery Schools were NOT originally identified-with the abominable corrupted ‘Hinduism’-related ‘5Ms’ Mediterranean Pseudo-Dionysian Maenad or Bacchant Traditions.

 

However the desire of the Sattvic Devotees to prevent their Sacred Marriage Traditions from being desecrated by the orgiastic and cannibalistic revels of the Bacchants / 5Ms practitioners drove them to increasingly isolate themselves and their Sacred Traditions, both for the preservation of their Holy Traditions and for the preservation of their own lives. Thus such Bridal Mysticism Traditions became increasingly esoteric over time, with both the Original Sattvic and Metaphysical Traditions and the later corrupted 5Ms related Traditions perservering as initiates-only ‘Mystery Schools’ throughout the Mediterranean Region.

In the East, the Rasa Lila was also treated by the sattvic-tending initiated Devotees with extreme reverence, while the commoners and ‘sahajiyas’ had their own popular celebrations of the Rasa Lila. The Divine STAR LOVERS Tanabata Festival of Japan is one example of how the Rasa Lila Love Affair of Rhoda-Kouros / Radha-Krishna as ASTERIA and ASTEROS has been preserved via a popular yearly Religious Festival. Rhoda-Kore and Rhodos-Kouros of Rhodes were also called the STAR Lovers, Asteria and Asteros.

 

In fact, I once attended an American Academy of Religion and Society of Biblical Literature academic Conference in California where there was a special Session being held on the study of the Song of Songs. Christian and Jewish Scholars like Marvin Pope and Chaim Rabin had studied and written extensively on the Judeo-Christian history and theology of the “Song of Songs” of Solomon. Pope suggested connections between Solomon and India, which I had independently asserted. He also dared to suggest Biblical associations with some Mediterranean Hierogamos Mystery School.

 

Additionally Pope recognized that YAHU was in fact BAAL (BEL or BL) variously as the Alter-Form, Brother or Savior-Son of the Semitic Supreme Father God EL. My research confirmed that this was BALA-DEVA as VASU-DEVA the Alter-Form or ‘Brother’ of HARI / KOUROS KRISHNA. ELI (Greek HELI) was HERU to the Afro-Egyptians and by various COGNATE HOLY NAMES, ELI / HARI was the Supreme Father God of all of Humanity. As the Source of BAL-YAHU, ELI / HARI was thus the ORIGINAL SUPREME PERSONALITY OF GODHEAD of ALL of Humanity, the Africans, Greco-Romans (Indo-Europeans), Biblical Semites, Asians and all others!

“Mr. Pope’s work on the tablets resulted in his retranslations from the ancient Hebrew of the entire books of Job and the Song of Songs, and a lengthy commentary about them both, published in 1973 and 1977 by the Anchor Bible Series. Robert R. Wilson, a professor of religious studies at Yale, said those two translations were ”the brilliant works of a master scholar” and added to the general understanding of an age and its poetry.”

…..
“A man whose wit made him popular among generations of Yale students, he said that one of his findings was that Baal, chief god of the Ugarits, was not always chief, as scholars had thought, but had maneuvered to take over from the god El, whom he kicked further upstairs.”
