The Sanskrit Language Vedas and related Scriptures of so-called ‘Hinduism’ / Sanatana Dharma, ARE religious texts. They, the Scriptures and the Devas that they describe, are all strung-together ‘…like pearls on a Thread…’ as Sri Krishna says in His Bhagavad Gita AS IT IS, and Sri Krishna, the Adi Purusha Himself, is That Thread! Thus the oldest Hymn of the oldest part of the Rig Veda is the Purusha Sukta Hymn, which clearly describes that ALL of the Vedic Devas have been ‘born’ from the Cosmic Body of the Self-Sacrificed Purusha! These Devas are NOT some mundane material late-Greek Astrological, science-fiction or comic-book hero-type planetary regents or UFO aliens or demi-gods! The Purusha Sukta Hymn and earliest related Sanskrit oral traditions and texts are devotional, theological, metaphysical, religious, and philosophical, containing the most profound and devotional Transcendentalism and Moral Theology, Aesthetics, Philosophy, Logic, and even Language, Sociology, Math and Science! The modern-era popular ‘science fiction’ movement to reduce this Primal Revelatory Tradition of Sanatana Dharma to some UFO alien nonsense is just tragic. The Adi Purusha of the Vedas, Sri Krishna-Vishnu, is not just some mundane UFO ‘god’! The Vedic Devas are all variously described as Expansions or Incarnations of His, Who preside over various macro-cosmic and micro-cosmic forces and realms!
Question: “If Krishna and Amitabha are one and the same then we have two names of God . But who is Dharmakara who, according to mahayana scriptures, once lived as a man(just like Krishna) who became a Buddha . Did God descendent on earth then as Dharmakara who has to reach enlightment, or mayby the story of Dharmakara is not important at all and is mayby not correct.”
Answer from Bhakti Ananda Goswami: I am concerned with World History and Theology, Metaphysics and Philosophy, the Sacred Arts and Sciences and the Revelation, Name and Form of Godhead and Shakti. If one carefully studies what I have written about these Subjects, one should come to understand that the ORIGINAL KRISHNA / KOUROS NEVER CHANGES HIS ORIGINAL FORM and NEVER ‘LEAVES’ GO-LOKA VRINDAVAN. Thus, ALL OF SRI KRISHNA’s VARIEGATED FORMS FOR PASTIMES / LILAS are through, with, in and by Sri Krishna’s Second Person, LORD BALADEVA! In the earliest evidence of HARI-VASUdeva-ATMAN (Krishna-Baladeva-Paramatman) worship, These Three irreducible Forms or KAS / KAYAS / BODIES / PERSONS of the Triune Godhead may be confounded with One-Another. Thus in Pure Land Buddhism the Three Persons of the TRI-KAYA may be telescoped-into Eachother, or their distinct Theological Attributes may be merged. The Persons and Attributes of the Tri-Kaya’s Feminine (Receiving) Shaktis may even be confused and/or merged into the Purusha Persons of the Tri Kaya. So, over thousands of years and miles, and hundreds of cultures and languages, Pure Land Buddhism has flourished leaving a legacy of countless variations in its regional and local Lila Stories, Doctrines and Practices.
