Theban Amun-Ra, Khon-Shu and Mut (Mata)
Amun’s Blue color reveals that He is a Form of the Supreme Transcendental ‘Sky God’. The non-human colors distinguish mere humans from the Supreme Lord and His Expansions or Theophanies. Thus the Lord may be depicted as Blue, Black Green, Red, Gold/Yellow or Snow-white. The Supreme ‘Sky Father’ God is Blue in the daytime and Black, covered with stars as Kalah Purusha Time-Man at Night.
Amun, Mut and KhonShu at Thebes were equated with the Deities of Heliopolis and Greater Africa in various ways. Thus to the North AMUN would be equated with the Heliopolitan Cultus of Kouros Helios / Krishna. MUT would be equated with Rhoda/Radha and KhonShu equated with BAL-Yahu, Baladeva-Vasudeva. At Heliopolis and throughout the Levant the HERU-AUSU-ATUM HARI-VASU-ATMAN Tradition was associated with the DJED PILLAR TRIO of HERU-AUSAR (Osiris) and Their Feminine Asherah. These ‘Pillar’ Forms of Krishna HERU/HARI/ELI, His Brother and Alter-Form BAL-Yahu and Their Shekinah Shakti ASHERA / SUBHADRA (HALIA as Sister of Helios) are definitely Jagannatha, Subhadra and Baladeva! These Forms of the Lord and His Shakti were surely equated with Amun, Mut and KhonShu at Thebes, and the MANY Heliopolitan BARQUE/Float/Boat-PULLING FESTIVALS of Their devotees, conducted along the canals of the Nile thousands of years ago! To the South and East in Greater Africa Amun Mut and KhonShu were equated with the Ethiopian and South Indian / South Asian Tradition of Rama, Sita and Lakshman. Thus we can observe a Southern diffusion of the Sita-Rama-Lakshman Tradition and a Northern diffusion of the Radha-Krishna-Balarama Tradition, with a Global equation of Radha with Sita, Krishna with Rama and Baladeva with Lakshman. The public Murti Darshan RathaYatra Barque Boat or Murti-Carrying or Cart/Float-pulling Festival of Jagannatha Subhadra and Baladeva is a world-wide feature of Their worship, still going on today in a very grand way in ‘Hindu’, Buddhist and Catholic Lands. All Glories to Jagannatha Subhadra and Baladeva!
All Glories to Lord Bala-Yahu Who descends as the Cosmic Purusha and takes away the sins of the World! Happy are we who are called to His Supper! Lord we are not worthy to receive You, but only say the Word and we shall be healed! Jesus Maha Purusha Yupa Dhvaja ki jaya!
Question: “I can read on your photo that Lord Jesus Christ would have appeared in Bethlehem fulfilling a Vedic prophecy. In what way does this fulfillment of a Vedic prophecy in the case of Jesus has any importance to you? I appreciate Jesus as a charismatic holy personality and for the way he acted and revealed spiritual knowledge to his compatriots as described by some of his disciples and other evangelists in the Bible.”Answer by Bhakti Ananda Goswami: From your comment it appears that you have the same appreciation of Jesus Christ as that of many other ISKCON-related Vaishnavas and Hindus, who in our time have been heavily influenced by the neo-Gnosticism of the Western Esoteric (Occult) Tradition. Possibly convinced by anti-cCatholic sources that the cCatholic Apostolic Tradition from Jesus Christ is invalid, as a result you can only appreciate Him as “…a charismatic holy personality and for the way he acted and revealed spiritual knowledge to his compatriots as described by some of his disciples and other evangelists in the Bible.” People, including Neo-Gnostics, Protestants, Jews, Muslims, Hindus and others, who have been taught to reject the historical reality and theological validity of all of the ancient and Apostolic cCatholic Rites of the 5 Main Sampradayas from Jesus Christ, are only left with the kind of ‘Jesus’ that you appreciate. Such a merely human ‘finite jiva tattva’ ‘Lord Jesus Christ’ can easily be re-presented as just a Vaishnava Missionary to the meat eaters, a Muslim Prophet, a mere Jewish Reformer, a Theravadin Buddhist, a Mayavadi Hindu, a Theosophical Society Ascended Master of the Great White Aryan Brotherhood, a Rudolf Steiner-like or New Age Maitreya, or even a UFO contactee.
But, what has ‘importance’ to me is the actual revelatory history and theology of the GOD Jesus Christ of those 5 ancient and Apostolic cCatholic Mass Rite (Moksha Rtya) Lineages. I want to know why the Apostles of the cCatholic Church thought and taught that THEIR Jesus Christ was the Second Person of the ancient Heliopolitan Trinitarian Godhead of ELI-YAHU-ADON / HERU-AUSU-ATUM / HARI-VASU-ATMAN. Why, if the Jesus Christ of the Apostles was just an ’empowered’ finite soul, did His Disciples leave behind 5 great cCatholic Apostolic Lineages, which ALL taught that He was GOD? The 5 main cCatholic Apostolic Rites of Alexandria, Jerusalem, Antioch, Byzantium and Rome ALL taught the same things, even though they taught these same Apostolic Doctrines and Practices, including their core Sacraments and Mass Rites in different languages and cultural forms! How astonishing is that! Thus from the beginning the cCatholic Apostolic Communion of the GOD JESUS CHRIST mystically embodied His UNIQUELY catholic / universal ‘Unity in Diversity’ as a continuation of all of the previous Heliopolitan Asyla Federations of the ancient World!
