The Visit of the Queen of Sheba to King Solomon, Edward John Poynter 1884-1890

Pope and Rabin are considered two of the most important scholars to specialize in studying the “Song of Songs”.  I DO NOT AGREE with either of their interpretations, but both of them provide a strong rational for my Thesis, because they discuss some of the SAME issues that are important in my work.  Thus their research legitimatizes my own by raising the same or closely related questions.   In this article I first introduced the subject of the Divine and Earthly Gokula / Goloka.  Then I pointed-out that the scholar of Protestant Christianity, Pope and the Jewish Scholar Rabin raised some extremely important questions.  Then I gave some links.  Finally I showed how my work ‘Contribution’ identified the specific Bridal Mysticism SOURCE in the ancient Mediterranean, namely the Bucolic Paradise Island of Rhodes. The BOUKOLION was the Place where the Bridal Mysticism Rites of the HieroGamos or Monogamos Sacred Wedding took place.  The Divine Lovers of the Song of Songs are called the (plural) DODANIM and elsewhere in the Bible we  see RODANIM the plural for of RHODES.  The Hebrew Letters Daleth and Rosh are almost identical, thus it is clear that the DODANIM of the “Song” were the RODANIM Divine Lovers of Rhodes!

What I contributed was the HISTORICAL and THEOLOGICAL IDENTITY of the SPECIFIC and ORIGINAL Mediterranean REGIONAL ‘HIEROGAMOS” Rhoda-Kouros / Radha-Krishna Bridal Mysticism Tradition that all of the other Mediterranean REGIONAL TRADITIONS including the BIBLICAL TRADITION were derived from. As a Vaishnava disciple of Srila Prabhupada’s, I naturally offered the fruits of my labors TO THE VAISHNAVA COMMUNITY. Perhapes if I had NOT made this sacrifice of my life’s work, my life would have been entirely different, and I would not ‘be here’ today, still struggling to get even a few of my Godbrothers and Godsisters to accept my devotional service offerings and ‘take my work seriously’.

This major discovery of the Rhoda-Kouros and BALAdeva Bridal Mysticism Core of the Judeo-Catholic Tradition could have been used by the leaders of the Hare Krishna Movement to unify all of Humanity in the NON-SECTARIAN HARI NAMA SANKIRTAN Mission of Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai! Instead those leaders chose to ally ISKCON and the Movement to the anti-Judeo-Catholic and anti-Semitic Aryanist and Occult Neo-Gnostic ‘New Age Movement’, and their hyper-sectarian version of exclusivistic Gaudiya Vaishnavism. Thus they could only reject and suppress any and all of my research ‘discoveries’, because they were entirely invested in their own profoundly prejudicial and exclusivistically sectarian World-view. The anti-Jewish and Anti-Christian Vaishnava Leaders did not want anyone to know that the ORIGINAL REGIONAL MEDITERRANEAN Bhakti Tradition was the Cultus of Radha-Krishna / Rhoda-Kouros and Their Supreme Hierophant, Yahu-BAL (Dionysos) on Their BUCOLIC / GOKULA Cow-Paradise Nymphia Lotus-ISLE of Rhodes.

There are countless historical and theological connections between the Bucolic Boukolion (GO-KULA) Hiero-Gamos Bhakti Tradition of Rhoda and Kouros of Rhodes and the Bucolic GOKULA / GO-LOKA Tradition of Radha-Krishna worship in the Vrndavan-Mathura Region of India. These connections evidence that the CORE of both of the Judeo-Catholic and the Eastern Bhakti Divine Love Traditions has ALWAYS BEEN the worship of Radha-Krishna and Balarama as Their Supreme Master of Mysteries and the Spiritual Master and Savior of ALL WORLDS.

The Hidden Glory of Srimati Radharani is Eternally Visible

Srimati Radharani, the Queen of Devotion and the Queen of Vrindavan

Srimati Radharani, the Queen of Devotion and the Queen of Vrindavan

It is a fact that many Vaishnava scholars say that Srimati Radharani is ‘Hidden’ even in the Srimad Bhagavatam, and that Her Holy Name is only revealed in the word Aradhanam for Her superlative embodiment of Service to Hari as Love-Of-God in Person. However if we know where and how to ‘see’ Her throughout the historical record, She is ALWAYS there with Krishna and Balarama! She is the Adi Shakti / Shekinah of the Supreme Lord. Just as He has hundreds and millions of Holy Names, She does too. Just as He as the Adi Purusha manifests in countless Forms, She as the Adi Prakriti does too! Wherever He is, She is too. However, Her Highest Original Name-Form ‘never leaves’ Her BUCOLIC BOUKOLION BOUSAALA Supreme Abode PARADISE of BRENDA’s VANA on Rhodes. 

Everywhere else, She is worshiped in Awe and Reverence in One of Her Sacred Queen Forms. Thus every OTHER sacred place has its Presiding Queen TYCHE or FORTUNA, LUCRETIA-MONETA, ‘LADY LUCK’, MINTHE or LAKSHMI. Coins were first ‘minted’ at Her Laxmi Shrines. Money is Named for Her MONETA. LUCRE (MONEY) and LUCK (FORTUNE) are named for Her. As FORTUNA She is the ‘Consort’ of God as Providence. Throughout the entire ancient World She is the merciful Sacred Queen, Who is the Mother of all of Her Peoples. So, internally and on Rhodes, She is RHODA-KORE etc. but everywhere else She is worshiped in one of Her other Forms. Thus She is identified by Her Rhodes-related an-iconic Forms, pictorial puns, hieroglyphs or symbols. For example the HEXAD says Her Name, HXD=SKT SHAKTI. The ROSE or a RED FLOWER says Her Name RHODA. The NYMPHIA / LOTUS says Her Name Sri or Padma. The STAR says Her Name ASTERIA, STELLA or ASTRAYA, TARA. Sacred BASIL says Her Name BASILEA, the Queen of Heaven!  Read the rest of this entry
