None Come to the Father Hari Except thru the Grace of Balarama – Bal-Yahu

Standard

ScreenHunter_16-Aug.-02-19.36Prabhupad says that Maha-Visnu comes from Baladev/Balarama in TLC Introduction:

“[…]The manifestations of the Supreme are also explained in Caitanya-caritāmṛta. After offering respects to Lord Caitanya, Kṛṣṇadāsa Kavirāja next offers them to Nityānanda. He explains that Nityānanda is a manifestation of Saṅkarṣaṇa, who is the origin of the Mahā-Viṣṇu. Kṛṣṇa’s first manifestation is as Balarāma and then Saṅkarṣaṇa, and after Saṅkarṣaṇa He is manifest as Pradyumna. In this way so many expansions take place. Although there are many expansions, Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa is the origin, as confirmed in Brahma-saṁhitā. […]”http://causelessmercy.com/?P=TLCIntoduction

Thankyou Bhakta Peter for this Quote. Although Lord Balarama was originally worshiped by all of Humanity, with the onset of Kali Yuga (Age = Yuga) proper information and realization of His Self Revelation became distorted and then forgotten by much of the Human family. However, the ancient Sanskrit Vedic-Vaishnava Shastras (Scriptures) and Their AUTHORIZED COMMENTARIES are like a ‘time machine’ that can take us all of the way back to the Original Revelation, to MEET the Divine Revelator and Master of Mysteries, Lord Balarama HIMSELF!

Although the revelatory theology of Lord Balarama, Sri Krishna’s Second Self, is spread throughout ALL of the Vedic-Vaishnava Scriptures, in the Gaudiya Vaishnava Tradition of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the traditional ancient Brahma Lineage Theology of Lord Balarama is especially preserved and elaborated-on in the context of describing the attributes, activities and theology of Sri Nityanananda-Balarama, Who is considered to be Lord Balarama’s Avatara in the Divine Lila of Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai.

Thus to understand Lord Balarama from the Gaudiya-related perspective of the Brahma Sampradaya (Lineage) of Vaishnavism, which is historically and theologically related to the Afro-Helleno-Semitic Judeo-cCatholic Tradition of the ancient Mediterranean, one should carefully study the Vaishnava Scriptural Translations and Traditional Gaudiya Vaishnava Commentaries of the Modern Era Gaudiya Vaishnava Master, Srila Prabhupada.

VIRACOCHA: The Supreme God Vishnu in the Western Hemisphere

Standard

VIRACOCHA is the Supreme God of all of the Andean Tribes and has religious cognates throughout the tribes of the Western Hemisphere. His worship had an ancient center near lake Titicacha and Machu Picchu. The Great Flood Story was prominent among the Andean Tribes and there are many connections between the worship of Vishnu in the Vedic-Vaishnava Flood Story of MANU and the Cultus of Viracocha in the Region of this Lake and Machu Picchu. Macha Puchara ‘Matsya’s Fin’ is the Sacred Peak in the Himalayas that is shaped like Machu Picchu. The totem-pole style of the multi-headed Form of Vishnu / Avalokiteshvara, especially the Bhagavad-gita related Kalah Form is quite obviously the totem-pole style multi-headed Form of Viracocha. Vairocana is a sectarian by-Name of the Adi Purusha in Mahayana Buddhism. There may be a connection between the Names themselves, but the Deity in both cases is obviously the Adi Purusha, the Cosmic and Supra-Cosmic Lord of All.  Viracocha in His totem pole style multi-headed Form. Compare this to the Mahayana Buddhist totem pole style multi-headed Forms of Avalokiteshvara/Vishnu. Some of the Forms of Viracocha the Andean Supreme God are recognizably Forms of Vishnu.
