Worship of Krishna-Balarama & Paramatma as Tri-Kaya of Mahayana Pure Land Buddhism

Standard

Uddhava hears from Krsna “Krsna in Mathura – “Sri Uddhava said: Thereafter Lord Krsna went to Mathura City with Sri Baladeva, and to please Their parents They dragged Kamsa, the leader of public enemies, down from his throne and killed him, pulling him along the ground with great strength.” (SB 3.3.1)

“Since that time, the city of Mathura had been the capital of all the kings of the Yadu dynasty. The city and district of Mathura are very intimately connected with Krsna, for Lord Krsna lives there eternally.” (SB 10.1.28)”

All expert Mahayana Pure Land Buddhist Art Historians know that the canon of Mahayana Pure Land Buddhist sacred Art derives from and diffused from its two earliest main regional centers in Gandhara and Mathura. The Gandharan Forms were more Greek in style and the Mathuran Forms were more classically Indian and Oriental. In fact the Mathuran Forms are recognizable for a GAUDIYA VAISHNAVA as belonging to the Vrndavan-Mathuran cultus of Krishna-Balarama and Their Shaktis. Since it is known that the ‘Buddhist’ Emperor Asoka’s own ‘Buddhist’ Guru had a monastery IN MATHURA with about 10,000 monks in it, it should be OBVIOUS what kind of ‘Buddhism’ the Emperor was schooled-in and why ALL of Mahayana Pure Land Buddhism throughout its entire geographic range was spreading devotion to the Trinity / Trikaya of Krishna-Balarama and Their Omnipresent Holy Spirit, Paramatma.

Is it concievable that the central Northern Indian Royal Capital of Krishna-Balarama Worship would have an atheistic Theravadin ‘Buddhist’ Monastery with 10,000 monks in it? What does the historical evidence tell us about the presence of this Form of ‘Buddhism’ in Mathura, and why all of Asoka-related Mahayana Pure Land Buddhism is PERMEATED with the Holy Names, Forms, Doctrines and Practices of Krishna-centric Vaishnavism?

Take this one Wiki article for example, regarding the significance of Mathura in early Mahayana Buddhist Art… “…possibly dating back to the occupation of Mathura by the Indo-Greeks during the 2nd century BC.” My own studies have proven that the Rhodian Greek Tradition of Rhoda-Kouros and Dionysos (Radha-Krishna and Baladeva) was the specific connection between the Greco-Indian Gandharan and Mathuran Schools of Vaishnavism and the original Pure Land Tradition of the Vaishnava Brahma Sect / Sampradaya known as ‘Buddhism’. In the Mediterranean Region the Sect of Kouros Helios (Krishna) Worship known in the East as ‘Buddhism’ was the Afro-Helleno-Semitic Tradition of SOKAR-AUSAR-PTAH of Memphis. This was the Cultus of SUKRA-ASHURA-BUDH, Namely the Trinity of BALADEVA (SUKLA) – VISHNU (by His Vedic Name ASHURA) – BUDDHA (His Theophanies and Incarnations as the countless Buddhas and BODHI-sattvas of the Pure Land Tradition).  Read the rest of this entry

A New Book On the History of Religion & Civilization: The Serpent, The Eagle, The Lion and the Disk

Standard

The Serpent The Eagle The Lion & The Disk

By Brannon Parker

Paperback, 469 Pages

The Serpent The Eagle The Lion & The Disk‘The Serpent, the Eagle, the Lion and the Disk’ The preeminent symbols of the sacred in the ancient world. The Ancients associated these symbols with the Divine. Many theories have been developed regarding these symbols yet the mystery still remains. This is particularly true of the aniconic winged disk symbol. How and why does the same symbol have the same meaning to so many people of diverse cultures and civilizations? Was it the symbol of an all-conquering triumphalist Egyptian or Sumerian Empire or perhaps of a vanished race from beyond the stars? Or is it a representation of a universal transcendent experience? The pieces of this puzzle have long been scattered throughout history, hidden amongst the mystical traditions of the world. Unravel the truly astounding and majestic history of religion, civilization and God. This book represents a Startling Revelation and a Revolutionary New Look at the Origins of Humanity’s Common Mystical Experience, its Religion, Culture and the Rise of Civilization. Researching and writing on this subject represents a tremendous journey into the ancient world, with all its mystery and splendor. Rather than soulless brutal stories of ‘burial cults’, ‘survival of the fittest’ and ‘scheming priests and kings’ scenarios, it was refreshing to recognize that the roots of civilization are genuinely positive. Civilization originally developed as a reflection of humanity’s spiritual inclinations. As an example when cities were built, they were built and architecturally planned as forms of Purusha (God), thus they are called ‘pur, puri, burry, borough, burg’, etc. The research shows that, rather than similar Gods and Goddesses being worshiped in these ‘boroughs’ throughout the world, it was the same God and Goddess being worshiped. Our common and long forgotten history reveals the diverse and unique methods that multitudes of cultures interacted with these same divinities. Civilization and culture are but reflections of the depth of Humanity’s conscious connection with the ‘Sacred’. Read the rest of this entry
