To begin to understand this complicated subject, we can start with what is mentioned in this wiki article.
“Khonsu (alternately Chonsu, Khensu, Khons, Chons or Khonshu) is an Ancient Egyptian god whose main role was associated with the moon. His name means “traveller” and this may relate to the nightly travel of the moon across the sky. Along with Thoth he marked the passage of time. Khonsu was instrumental in the creation of new life in all living creatures. At Thebes he formed part of a family triad with Mut as his mother and Amun his father. At Kom Ombo he was worshipped as son of Sobek and Hathor.”
The Lunar-related regional CHN or KHN Name of the Supreme Lord YAHU-SM/N YAHU-SOMA (Egyptian IAH, Sumerian EA, Vedic-Vaishnava YA, AH, AS, VAS, VISH, USH etc.) was cognate with the CHANdra of the East. The words CANDLE and CHANDRA are linguistically related or ‘cognates’. As the Golden SUN HARI lights up the external world of the DAY, the White or Silver MOON lights up the otherwise dark Night and the INTERNAL WORLD of the MIND. Thus BL-YAHU-SM/N (Baladeva Vasudeva as SOMA) is both the Lord Who Lights up the Dark Night of the external World, and He is also the Lord Who ENLIGHTENS THE INTERNAL MIND AND SOUL-SELF OF HUMANITY. In this capacity HE is the Original and only Internal Enlightener and Spiritual Master of Humanity. It is HE Who gives us INTERNAL VISION and WISDOM, behind our eyelids, inside of our minds where the light of the SUN cannot shine! He is thus the Lord of memory and imagination, of reason and of all mental processes.
For some of His other attributes, let us consider His Icon above…
He is FIRST the Eternally KOUROS ‘HUMAN’ YOUTH. Thus He has His Youthful Form with His long KOUROS sidelock of hair. See my Tonsure Album here on facebook for more on this ‘Side lock of Youth’. The tied-on symbolic Beard that He is wearing identifies Him with the ‘Ancient of Days’ and Prajapati FATHER of Creation. The Lunar Determinative ‘crown’ on His Head is the Bouvine ‘Horns of the Moon’ that identifies Him with YAHU-BL as the BL-SOMA Lunar Lord of Jericho, and the Egyptian HAP-AUSAR-PTAH APIS BULL of Heliopolis and Memphis. This Lunar Crown also identifies Him with His Lunar-related Shakti (HEXAD / Hekate / Sekhet / SHEKINAH) as HET-HERU (HAT-HOR / Hathor) as BETH-EL (Mary as the ‘House of God’). His Green, Blue or Blackish etc. Bodily Colors variously identify Him with His Water, Day and Night Sky, Vegetal and Earth Manifestations. His decorated HERU Eyes often invoke His EKA / ECHAD ‘Uchat’ Eye Symbols of Oneness and Emanation. To understand these Symbols, see how the Symbol for EKA is incorporated into the IMMANENT OMNIPRESENT ALL-SEEING EYES of HARI as AVALOKITESHVARA in Pure Land and related Tantric Buddhism in Nepal and Tibet (See my photos of the famous Swyambhunatha and Bodhinatha Stupas in Nepal).

Corinthia ,south of Athens, Greece painted in the wall of a ruin this picture strongly resembles the Cow tending flute playing Lord Krishna.
HARI-VASU-ATMAN / KRISHNA-BALADEVA-PARAMATMAN is the Original Supreme Personality of Godhead. Did you know that Lord Ananta-Baladeva, the Rig Vedic Cosmic Purusha Himself, once secretly Incarnated as the Great Physician CHARAKA to deliver ALL HUMANITY from birth, death disease and old age?
In the Mediterranean Region Charaka was prophetically worshiped as IASAS / YASHAS (YAHU-SHUA / JESUS) Asclepios of the Greeks, Aesculapius of the Romans, Osiris-Serapis of the Egyptians and Eshmun in Phonecia. He was the most well-known, loved and worshiped God of the entire Region for thousands of years. Within 100 years of the Appearance of Jesus Christ, the worship of Charaka (Serapis, Iasas etc.) became the worship of the Cosmic Purusha and Great Physician Jesus Christ, whose Rig Vedic Self-Sacrifice “…takes away the sins of the World (Cosmos)”.
In the Mediterranean Region the Original Supreme Personality of Godhead, worshiped by the greatest ascetic saints, mystics, prophets, philosophers, scientists, artists, heroes and kings, was HERU-WASU-ATEN / ELI-YAHU-ADON / HELI-OS-ATOMOS (HARI-VASU-ATMAN) and on His Sacred BUCOLIC (GOKULA) LOTUS (NYMPHIA) ISLAND of RHODA, HE was worshiped exclusively as the Meghistos Kouros or Greatest Youth, KRISHNA! He was considered the ORIGIN of ALL of the (Purusha male, giver) Greek ‘Gods’ and His feminine receiver Prakriti Shekinah / Shakti RHODA (RADHA) was considered the ORIGIN of all of the Greek ‘Goddesses’!
Bhakti Ananda Goswami aka David M. Sherman Speaks on the Holy Trinity as the Vaishnava Krishna – Baladeva – Paramatma, Akhnaten’s Origin – Manifested – Omnipresent and Pure Land Buddhism’s Tri-Kaya. These are the Three aspects of the One Supreme Godhead at the foundation of all God Centered forms of Religion. Thus this Holy Trinity is found in ancient Judaism, Mediterranean Heliopolitanism and Zorarastrianism among many others.
He also identifies the Holy Cross and the Ankh with the Vedic Yupa Dhwaj or Sacrificial Stake and the Self Sacrifice of Purusha or God
The True Identity of the original Sattvic Dionysus as both Lord Shiva and Lord Balarama, the Common Theme of the Great Flood and God’s Greek Dolphinus or Vedic Matsya Avatar, Amunism, Atenism, Ancient Judaic Religion, Heliopolis as the City of On or Aun – OM, Ancient Mediterranean Vaishnavism centered upon Rhoda-Kouros or Radha Krishna and the ongoing struggle between the doctrines of Voidist – Godless Impersonalism and Fully Personalized Devotional Traditions combined with Paramatma Worship are also discussed.

Apademak -Lion Headed God with a Serpentine Body Rising out of a Lotus
Numerous versions of the Corona Crown-of-many-crowns of the All-God HARI-AUSU-ATUM can be seen on Vishnu Murtis from Africa, to Persia, India, China, Japan and Angkor Wat, to the Isles of Oceana and the New World. Even today in India, countless versions of this compound crown of Ausu / Wasu or VASU-DEVA adorn Vishnu Murtis throughout India. Compare Afro-Egyptian Apademak to the universal TIME Form of HERU-AUSU as Zeus-Jupiter-Amun Ra on the Top of the Metternich Stela. Compare His ‘Crown of many crowns’ to the Hem Hem Crown of Ausu / Ausar (Osiris) and Cyrus the Great’s Favarshi at Parsegard, Persia. Lion-Headed Vaishnava HARYEH, Jewish AREYAHU TZABAOTH, Persian Zurvan, Greek Zeus Chronos, Roman Jupiter Saturnus is here the Afro-Egyptian Heru-Ausu as AMUN-RA APADEMAK wearing His HemHemet Crown.

A SHIRE is an ASYLA and a Dharma- ASHALA. Here is a short, and very deficient introduction to the subject of Redemption, MOKSHA / MISSA MANU-MISSION and Religious Salvation as ASYLA. I have studied MOKSHA / MANUMISSION, ASYLA and the ancient religio-political Alliances, Leagues and Federations of Asyla for over 40 years. The history of the ancient World could be summed-up as a perpetual struggle between the lovers of freedom and the One True benevolent Sattva Guna God, HERU-VASU-ATUM / ELI-YAHU-ADON / HARI-VASU-ATMAN that they worshiped, and the cruel enslaving forces of the self-appointed False Gods of The World. The below references completely miss the connections of the anti-slavery forces to Helios Worship, and do not understand the relationship between the Eastern and Western Bhakti Yoga ‘Free Will’ and Divine Love Traditions. LOVE requires self-possession and the physical freedom to serve the person or persons of one’s own desiring. Thus FREEDOM of relationship is necessary in the religious, the divine, and in the merely human realm. LOVE necessitates FREEDOM. Spiritual, intellectual and physical Freedom is fundamentally necessary to active LOVING. LOVE as DEVOTIONAL SERVICE cannot be incarnated without the physical opportunity and ability or facility to do so. Thus both freedom as opportunity and freedom as disciplined “skillful means” is necessary for the fullest and most perfect expression of Love. Read the rest of this entry
