Balarama, Khonsu and the Moon

Standard

10644806_10152403302972858_1937590574603549027_nTo begin to understand this complicated subject, we can start with what is mentioned in this wiki article.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khonsu

“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.[1]”

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).

Djed Pillar Trio of Amun-Ra, Khon-Shu and Mut & Jagannath, Baladeva and Subhadra

Standard
Theban Amun-Ra, Khon-Shu and Mut (Mata)

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!
