Akhenaton’s Vedic Roots

Standard

Los Angeles, CA – April 10, 2000

Recently, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art held an exhibit called “Pharaohs of the Sun”. It turned out to be the most popular exhibit ever. The exhibit featured artifacts from the reigns of Akhenaton, Nefertiti, and the famous King Tut.

Modern scholars claim that Akhenaton was the worlds first known monotheist. However, the fact is, he was actually reviving an ancient monotheistic religious tradition. Unknown to most is the true nature of this religion. This religion was not only vedic, but was actually an indiginous Egyptian form of Vaisnavaism.

Research has proven Akhenaton’s vedic roots through his familial connections to the Hurrian/Mitanni peoples. Everyone agrees that the Mitanni were a Sanskrit speaking and writing people and they worshipped the vedic gods. What is forgotten is the fact that Akhenaton’s father, his mother, and wife were all related to the vedic Mitanni. Thus, it is no surprise that Akhenaton’s religion has so many vedic similarities. The research of BhaktiAnanda Goswami has proven the Vaishnava nature of his religion. Read the rest of this entry

Bhagavat Purana’s Imprint Upon Ancient Mediterranean Religion

Standard

Ancient Roman Mosaic of Apollo

Esteemed Scholars,
Regardless of the age of the assembled Bhagavatam, a significant number of its pieces can be found in the Mediterranean region at the dawn of the historic period there. By 3000 bc Heliopolitan Monotheism was emerging into history as the dominant religion of the region. While the City of Heliopolis in Egypt was associated with the royal worship of Helios and Sekhet and their empowered Heliopolitan Pharohs and Queens, the cult center of the original form of Helios as the pastoral Kouros was on the Isle of Rhodes.

 

According to legend, after the Great Flood, the Island of Rhodes appeared from her father, Oceanos. She was the origin and most beautiful of all the Nymphs. Nymph means both ‘lotus’ and ‘maiden’ or ‘bride’. Helios chose Rhoda’s island form for his home (Hladini Shakti), and took her as his beloved. Helios, who was always worshiped as the Meghistos Kouros (the greatest ideal of youthful beauty), was not a mundane solar demigod, but was worshiped as the supreme transcendant Deity by ascetic monotheists throughout the region for thousands of years. Rhodes was already sacred to Helios in the Minoan Era. It is mentioned as part of the Minoan leagues. Read the rest of this entry

ONE ADI PURUSHA AND TWO SCRIPTURES…AN INTRODUCTION TO THE WORSHIP OF HRIH IN PURE LAND BUDDHISM

Pure Land Buddhism is historically the original Buddhism. Closely related to Krishna-centric Vaishnavism, evidence for the early existence of the Pure Land Buddhist Bhakti Tradition can be found from North Africa / Egypt to India and Asia. Although Pure Land Buddhism eventually became corrupted with atheistic Theravadin teachings, its Vaishnava-related origins should still be readilyapparent to any Vaishnava scholar studying the evidence.

Two important areas of evidence are the Sanskrit Scriptures and Sacred Murtis /Icons of the various regional Pure Land Traditions.

AN EXAMPLE OF THE PURE LAND BUDDHIST ICONOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE Like Sho (‘Flute’) Kannon (Amida HRIH), this flute-playing Nepalese-style Pure Land Murti of Infinite Light graces the Great Lantern at the Todaiji Temple in Nara Japan. ONE MAY STILL SEE NUMEROUS SIMILAR ICONS IN TIBETAN AND NEPALESE SACRED BUDDHIST ART, WHERE THEY ARE CLEARLY RELATED TO THE VAISHNAVA ICONOGRAPHY OF THE REGION.

Pure Land Buddhist Worship of HARI the LORD of All HEARTS

Standard

Prajna-paramita HRDAYA Sutram

All Glories to Lord HARI the LORD of all HEARTS!

HEART = Sanskrit HRID a contraction of HRI-DAYA or HRDAYA a contraction of HARI-DAYA.

DAYA as related to DIAS and Persian DIVAN is a throne, as raised seat or an apolstered couch that the King or Queen sits on in Their audience chamber or royal hall, throne room, for the purpose of serving their people by administrating their kingdom/domain, teaching, judging and sentencing their people, or aquiting or manumitting/releasing them from sentence!  Such a Vedic Vaishnava king or queen was not an absolute ruler, but was rather an absolute servant of his or her people, and considered the benevolent loving and responsible mother or father of every being in his or her domain!

What is the Domain of DHAMANE Krishna WHO is HARI, the Lord of ALL HEARTS, and the HEART of every Cosmic and Transcendental Manifestation?   It is as Infinite and Eternal as HE IS! Read the rest of this entry
