[Bhakti Ananda Goswami’s Response to this article by Radhakrishnadas Brahmachari]

 Thank You for this nice explanation of the difference between papa ‘sin’ and aparadha ‘offenses’.  When I first saw this article by Radhakrishnadas Brahmachari, I thought of writing something about the issue of papa and aparadha in the World’s other anciently related Bhakti Yoga Traditions.  However, since my Father and I have been struggling with a severe illness lately, I have not been able to do it.  So here I will only note a few things that perhaps I will be able to write more about in the future.

First, the concept of sin as papa and papa-purusha sin-personified or the person/man of sin, can be historically traced back to the enemy of  the Supreme Triune Godhead HERU-AUSU-ATUM of the Rhodian Cultus of Helios Meghistos Kouros / Krishna.  The first High Civilization of Egypt was based on the worship of the Theophanies and Incarnations of this Trinity of Hari (Krishna), Vasudeva (Balarama-Vishnu) and Their All-Pervasive Atman / Paramatma.  In North Egypt at Heliopolis the Hidden Lord of the Heart was called ATUM / ATON / ADON.  Later in the South at Thebes the same Hidden Lord of the Heart was called ATEN before and during the famous Amarna Period. 
The Indo-Europeans and Semites also worshiped this same Godhead as HELI-OS-ATOMOS (Atman = Being, WHO IS and the SELF Ousios, Atomos, Ontos, Autos etc.). The Semites called this Godhead ELI-YAHU-ADONyahu. 
For thousands of years the enemy of this Godhead was known as SETU /KETU (Satan the sinful cause of CATA-bolism decay disease and death) ) and PAPA / sin. The hieroglyph for PAPA / sin in Egypt was a small deadly poisonous centipede type of insect.  The meaning of the symbol is that the poison of sin can sicken and kill your whole body.  Thus a very small and insignificant looking creature or bite/sting may look harmless, but the wise person knows to avoid the risk of the deadly sting of such envious life-destroying sinful creatures.  Modern Egyptologists and Linguists have rendered this centipede-like ideogram for sin as PP and have transliterated it as APEP.  Obviously this name of the envious destroyer of life and enemy of God and Humanity is PAPA.

Discover One Godhead – East & West – The Holy Trinity & Atenism Explained

Standard

Bhakti Ananda Goswami aka David M. Sherman Speaks on the Holy Trinity as the Vaishnava Krishna – Baladeva – Paramatma, Akhnaten’s Origin – Manifested – Omnipresent and Pure Land Buddhism’s Tri-Kaya. These are the Three aspects of the One Supreme Godhead at the foundation of all God Centered forms of Religion. Thus this Holy Trinity is found in ancient Judaism, Mediterranean Heliopolitanism and Zorarastrianism among many others.

He also identifies the Holy Cross and the Ankh with the Vedic Yupa Dhwaj or Sacrificial Stake and the Self Sacrifice of Purusha or God

The True Identity of the original Sattvic Dionysus as both Lord Shiva and Lord Balarama, the Common Theme of the Great Flood and God’s Greek Dolphinus or Vedic Matsya Avatar, Amunism, Atenism, Ancient Judaic Religion, Heliopolis as the City of On or Aun – OM, Ancient Mediterranean Vaishnavism centered upon Rhoda-Kouros or Radha Krishna and the ongoing struggle between the doctrines of Voidist – Godless Impersonalism and Fully Personalized Devotional Traditions combined with Paramatma Worship are also discussed.

The Catholic Church Preserved Ancient ‘Pagan’ Relics

Standard

The 12 Apostles of Jesus Christ All Recognized Jesus as God

A traditional ICON such as this is considered a window into the spiritual reality. What does it say about the little bush below Jesus? What other messages, signs and symbols are revealed through it? Even the materials of the ICON make it a sacrifice of all of the Domains of Nature to reveal the very Form of God, Our Lady and Their Saints! The Earliest ICONS of Jesus and Mary were made in the same encaustic manner as the Egyptian depictions of Serapis and Isis. There was a clear continuity in the Traditions. Of the early cCatholic Sacred Art depictions of Jesus and Mary, only a few have survived, because the Muslims conquered almost the entire region of the earliest Church and destroyed the ‘idols’ of Jesus, Mary, God the Father and the Saints and angels. Thus there is a vast amount of the sacred art from the earliest Era of the Church that is almost entirely missing. The small number of surviving early Icons of Jesus actually appear to have Vishnu Urdhva Tilaka on them. This mark was copied on Traditional Icons even up to 500 years ago.

The Catholic Church has been accused of destroying ‘pagan’ temples and destroying or collecting their ‘idols’, but what really happened was that the Iconoclastic (image-smashing) followers of M*hammed, destroyed both the Pagan and cCatholic sacred art, libraries, shrines and temples. This is why the great centers of early cCatholic Christianity, which were NOT conquered by the M*hammedans, ‘collected’ and protected the sacred art and literature of the ancient World. Rome was out of reach of the Muslims so that is where the Murtis of Apollo and Dionysos, Asclepios etc. eventually ended up, in the possession of the Catholics at the Vatican.

NARA-HARI, Exodus & the Jewish PERAZON, HAREDIM & DOSSIM People of God, Part 1

Standard

The PERAZON People of God

Vishnu Visravupa, Purusha, Preserver of the Universe, Represented as the Whole World. Current location : Victoria & Albert Museum, London

In ancient Sanskrit a PUR was the body, temple, town, city or realm of PUR-USHA the (masculine) Lord Who IS / WAS embodied there!  The VASU or AHU root, in its various forms, meant to BE, Exist, Persist / Dwell, IS, WAS etc. and ASU was the root of the Vedic Name of VISHNU, ASURA / AHURA, the SOUL of the UNIVERSE!  Compared accross the related Indo-European, Semitic and African Heliopolitan Religious Traditions, the PUR-USA related Names and words are profoundly Revelatory.  The USA or VASU element of the word PUR-USA, is a supremely important and primal Name of God.  In Egypt this Holy Name, AUSU or WASU, is the Primal Name of the Greco-Egyptian ‘Osiris’, Who is the Supreme SOUL inhabiting all bodies, the temples of the various Nomes of Egypt and the Heliopolitan Asyla Federations, the Pharaoh (and all anointed, sacred kings), and pervading the Universe itself.  This AUSU / WASU is the SAME DEITY as the Semites YAHU and the Persian’s AHURA MAZDA.  In India He was/is the Vedic Name of VISHNU as ASURA the SOUL of the Universe.  This ASURA, VISHNU / VASU-DEVA, the Persian Good God AHURA MAZDA, should not be confused with an A-SURA, and enemy of SURA/HARI, ie a demonic being. All Greco-Roman masculine Deity Names ending in -OS, -US, -IAS, and Jewish Deity Names ending in -YAHU, -AH, ‘-JAH’ indicate that the Deity thus Named is a FORM of OSiris, YAHU / AUSU / VASU-deva!  Thus hundreds of such compound Deity Names exist in the Afro-Heleno-Semitic Greco-Roman, Egyptian and Jewish Traditions.  Beyond the Afro-Heleno-Semitic Heliopolitan Jewish and Proto-Catholic Tradition the Names of the ancient World’s other Supreme Father ‘Gods’ reveal These also to be Forms of the One God and Soul of the Universe, ASU / YAHU or VASU-deva.
