The Golden Avatar – The Golden Hari Predicted in the Vedic Scriptures

Sri Panchatattva Dancing in the Forest

Sri Panchatattva Dancing in the Forest

Dear Friends and Family, Today as we celebrate the appearance of the GOLDEN AVATARA, let us renew our vows and dedication to the non-sectarian Mission of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s HARI NAMA SANKIRTAN Movement! Accross the ancient Earth / Eartha / Bertha / Ephrata / Fertile Bharata, ‘Golden’ was one of the primary meanings of the primal H R Name of God. Rather, the color Gold / Yellow was a primary visual or pictorial PUN for the Holy Name HARI / HERU / ARI etc. In some form this H R / H L etc. Holy Name of God was the near ‘universal’ Holy Name recognized by every tribal and linguistic group. Thus in Africa we find HERU in Egypt and OLU in Nigeria. The Supreme Lord was HELI, (Kouru etc.) to the Greeks and SOLE to the Romans. He was ELI, ARI, ALI etc. to the Semites, HVARE to the Persians, and Hari, Hara and Sura etc. in the East. Thus everyone worshped the Supreme Lord HARI at the dawn of Human Civilization in this Age / Yuga. How is it possible that to revive the lost devotion and unity of the One Human Family, Srila Prabhupada performed the unthinkable austerity to come here and recruit us into Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s Non-Sectarian World-unifying Mission of the Hari Nama Sankirtan Movement! When we call on GAURA HARI let us be reminded that GAURA is the SAME NAME as HARI, meaning GOLDEN! Thus there is no difference between the Holy Names of GAURA and HARI! In His infinite variegatedness, the Lord’s Names and Forms are simultaneously and inconceivabably One and Different! Let us glorify Him by His Holy Names in every town and village! Gaura Hari! Hari Hari Bol! Happy Gaura Purnima everyone! Read the rest of this entry

The Apostolic Traditions Identify Jesus Christ as God


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!
