Bhakti Ananda Goswami’s Unique Contribution To The Field of Biblical Studies of the “Song of Songs” of Solomon

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

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.

Dear Family and Friends, Please put aside any preconceived notions that you might have about who the mere astrological planetary regent Greco-Roman ‘sun god’ Helios-Apollo was, and try to understand that all such mundane polytheistic ideas were a very late devolution of unified humanity’s original, primal emanational and incarnational devotional Monotheism. In that Monotheism the Original Supreme Personality of Godhead was the 1. Transcendent, 2. Mediating (Emanating and Incarnating) and 3. Immanent HARI, Who as God-Who-Is-Love was HARI, the LORD OF ALL HEARTS, and the HEART OF THE COSMOS / CREATION. HARI dwelt in the CORE, HRID / HEART HRIDAYA/ HARI-DAYA of All BEINGS and THINGS! Thus HE was not just some mundane solar planetary regent or just the planetary ‘father’ of our local solar system.

He was the Source of ALL ‘Spiritual and Material Worlds’! As the Lord of LOVE / LOBHA, Rasa Raja, the REX, REGENT, Hebrew RAZAN, RAJA KING of all flavors of Holy Love, He was worshiped in His ‘Original Form’ as Meghistos Kouros, with His Supreme Shekinah (Shakti) Rhoda-Kore on Their Sacred Lotus Island of Rhoda-Nymphia-Asteria in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Thus the worship of Srimati Radha Rani, Sri Krishna and Their Supreme Hierophant Baladeva was at the historical and theological HEART of all human progress in the ancient World!

To understand this astounding truth, we must go back past the corrupted and degraded forms of mundane polytheism that devolved from the original Monotheistic Bhakti Yoga devotion to Radha-Krishna and Their Sole Master of Divine Love Mysteries, The World Savior, Lord Bala Deva. This means that we must clear our minds (and hearts) of the prejudicial nonsense that we have been taught, and re-examine the evidence of history and theological Revelation, from a new perspective, which is in fact the oldest ‘angle of vision’…that of our primal Human unity as One People of God, HARI, the Transcendent-Mediating-Immanent Loving Lord of All Hearts!

Jesus Christ: Vishnu Tattva, Yagna Purusha Yupa Dhvaja

Standard

9098_10152166660734828_2079101635_nHERU-AUSU-ATUM the Original Supreme Godhead of the Primal Rhodes-related Heliopolitan Egyptian Bhakti Divine Love Tradition is HARI, God Who IS Love, the Lord of the HRID / HEART.

The Circle Hieroglyph reads ‘R (HR) or ‘L and used to be rendered by modern linguists as HOR, but more recently has been rendered as HERU.

The Second Person of the Primal Deity HERU was AUSU, here depicted as the Uraeus Cobra or Ourobolos Serpent of Infinity that is holding-up Heru. Ananta Sesha Naga as Ausu-Uraeus is draped with His Ankh Cross, which is His Symbol as the Cosmic Purusha PER-AUSU. The cCatholic Apostolic Coptic Egyptian Rite of Saint Mark of Alexandria Egypt retained this same ancient ANKH CROSS OF AUSU / OSIRIS AS ITS SYMBOL OF JESUS CHRIST, the Self-Sacrificed Cosmic Purusha (Egyptian PER-AUSU, Greek POLIEUS).

HERU-AUSU’s Omnipresent Third Person, Their Holy Spirit ATUM (the Indic Tradition PARAM-ATMAN), is depicted as the CORONA / KARANA-MALA Garland of RAY-HANDS (Sanskrit KARA) that extend from HERU-AUSU and Hold His Ankh Crosses. These Ray-Hands also do the creating, maintaining and dismantling work of all Temporary (composite, material) Worlds. Even today countless Vaishnava and Pure Land Buddhist Icons of HARI still depict Him
as surrounded by just such a ‘Garland of Ray-Hands’.

As the KR root Name CREATOR, Hari-Vasu-Atman is called KRITA Creator, KRITA-KRITA Creator of Creators, and KARTRI Creator. He is God / Huta and the Lord of Lords, Guard of Guardians and Ward of Wardens, Varda-vardana. He is the Raja-raja King of kings. Compare ancient Greek REX, Roman REG and Biblical Hebrew ROSH and RAZAN. He is Vasudeva of the vasudevas the Biblical Basileos of the basileos. He is HARI of the Hari-janas / Haryana / Suragana and ELI of the Elohima.

Together the 3 Persons of the Trinity of the Transcendent HERU, the Mediating AUSU and the Immanent ATUM are the Original Supreme Personality of Godhead. They are the HERU-AUSU-ATUM of Heliopolis, the HELI-OSiris-ATOMOS of the Greeks, the HERU-WASU-ATEN of Thebes (in Egypt), the ELI-YAHU-ADON of the Biblical Semites, and the HARI-VASU -ATMAN (Krishna-Baladeva-Paramatma) of the Vaishnavas. To the Pure Land Buddhists These Same Three Persons of the HARI Trinity were the TRI KAYA of Amitabha-Amitayus-Lokeshvara.

+In the Name of the Father, the Son and Their Holy Spirit, and with the help of our Mother Mary-Miriam / Nari-Narayani, Radha / Rhoda Mystica, may our human Family again be united as ONE FAMILY UNDER GOD! + Amun Amen Amin Aum !

PAPA and APA-RADHA, APEP and APO-STACY: Comparing the Concept in the Eastern & Western Bhakti Tradition

[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.

HERU-WASU / ELI-YAHU / HELI-OS / HARI-VASU as KRSNA-VISHNU

Standard

482549_10151579000524828_228778337_n

HARI, Krishna, is the Sourse of all spiritual and material worlds. Our local Sun Planet is just one of HARI’s infinite manifestations. When our Sun is considered a Form of Hari / God, our Sun is called Surya-Narayana. If we study the 1008 Holy Names of Surya Narayana, we can understand that Surya is a Form of HARI or Narayana, Krishna-Vishnu. However this Solar-Globe Planetary Form of His is NOT His ‘Original’ or ‘Supreme’ Form. Scholars have thus been mistaken in their identification of HARI (Krishna) as part of their imagined Global Class of Supreme Solar Gods. Read the rest of this entry

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.

Demeter (Da-Mata) Mother Earth & Her Kidnapped Daughter Sita/Proserpina

Standard
King Janaka Unearths Baby Sita who is Born of the Earth Goddess Sri Sita was born as Janaki or daughter of King Janak but later renamed as Sri Sita Devi by Maharishi Naradh Muni.She was actually given to King Janak by the Earth Goddess or Bhuma Devi whilst he was ploughing a piece of land during a prolonged period of drought in the Treta Yuga He unearthed a golden casket in which he found a beautiful baby girl. Overjoyed he named her Sita because land ploughed by a yoke is called Sita.

King Janaka Unearths Baby Sita who is Born of the Earth Goddess. Sri Sita was born as Janaki or daughter of King Janak but later renamed as Sri Sita Devi by Maharishi Narada Muni.She was actually given to King Janaka by the Earth Goddess or Bhumi Devi whilst he was ploughing a piece of land during a prolonged period of drought in the Treta Yuga He unearthed a golden casket in which he found a beautiful baby girl. Overjoyed he named her Sita because land ploughed by a yoke is called Sita.

Demeter is Mother Earth and Sitadevi is the beloved Daughter of Mother Earth who was BORN from Her! Thus Sita Devi appeared as a baby from Mother Earth as She was being plowed! This is why Sita was called (From A ) FURROW. To understand the deep profound connections between the Lila of Sita-Rama and the Heliopolitan Eleusinian Mysteries and related Orphic Mysteries, or the Mysteries of Demeter (DA-MATA Who ‘DA’ Bears/Carries us ALL) and Persephone, one must first understand Bridal Mysticism. In Bridal Mysticism the primary relationship of focus is the ‘conJUGal’ YOGA YOKING-OF-TWO Lover-and-Beloved Giver-and-Receiver Rasa Relationshipof the feminine soul-self or Shakti and Shakti-man God. God is always the masculine (Giver) Purusha, and Shekinah / Shakti is always the feminine (Receiver) Prakriti in Bridal Mysticism. The Jiva Soul is always the Bride of Christ, NOT Christ the Bridegroom / God. In the Adam and Eve Original ‘fall’ story, JIVA / HEVA / EVE ‘falls’ from Her relationship with ADON-YAHU, Her Lord the Supreme Atman (see the Jewish Mysticism of ADAM / ADON / ATON Kadmon and Shekinah). This is the Egyptian ‘Fall’ of the ‘BA self-soul (bird glyph) From Her Union with the ATON, ATUM/N or ATEN Form of HERU-AUSU. Read the rest of this entry

The Sacred Djed Pillar is Not a Phallic Emblem nor a Spinal Column

Standard

Djed Murals

For the record, this montage was not created or posted by me, but it is interesting and I would like to know the source of the Meso-American images, so that I can research it further. What do the experts say about them? I have studied the Raising of the Djed Pillar Egyptian Iconography in depth and have a lot to say about it, but I would need to know a lot more about the compared Meso-American Icons before making a judgement about them. As for the Raising the Djed ritual in ancient Egyptian Art, the current vogue in interpretation regarding this is that the Djed is a phallic symbol and you can surmise the rest. Frankly I am so sick of the nonsense that passes for scholarship in our time, that it just amazes me how anyone can take the promulgators of such trash seriously. The Egyptians were not shy about depicting the phallus of God, and so if they had wanted the Was or the Djed Scepters or Pillar to be a phallus, they would have rendered it as one.

NaraHari Kalah the Leontocephalos Lion-Headed Form of God as Time

Standard
This is a very brief summary of some of the main connections between the ancient civilizations that worshiped the Supreme Lord as Lion-Headed Kalah / Time. To the Indic Vaishnavas He was Krishna-Vishnu as Nara-Hari Kalah. He, Kalah, is the central Wrathful Cosmic Theophany of All-Devouring Time in His Bhagavad-gita Revelation. Shaivites consider Kalah / Time to be a Form of Shiva. Hari (Krishna-Vishnu) or Hara (Siva) is worshiped throughout the Range of Pure Land Mahayana Buddhism as Kalah Bairab, Kalah-Purusha and Kala-Chakra (with His Time Wheel). The ancient Persians worshiped their Supreme Lord as Lion-Headed Time (Zurvan or Aeon). Later the Zoroastrians and Mithras worshipers retained Him as the Father of the gods. The Greeks called Him Kronus/Time and at first they worshiped Him as the Father of the gods. The Romans called Him Jupiter-Saturnus and worshiped Him as the Father of the gods. The Greeks' Kronos, and Romans' Jupiter-Saturnus was identified with the God of the Jews and the Lion-Headed Time Form of the Egyptians' Supreme Deity.

Lord Jesus Christ Arrives in Jerusalem is welcomed with Sacred Palms and rides upon the back of a donkey.Earlier as Lord Balarama he liberated Denukasura the Donkey Demon by throwing him into the Palm tree.
As Jesus the Donkey was blessed to carry the Lord into Jerusalem upon a carpet of sacred palm fronds.

Jesus Christ as the Lord of ancient Jericho was worshiped as Taladhvaja and Tala-Ketu, Lord Baladeva as the Lord of the Sacred Palm Tree. Jericho was famous in the ancient World as the City of Palms. Jericho is one of the most ancient and continuously inhabited cities in the World, and the most important Semitic City Patron Deity Name associated with Jericho is SM/N! This is the Name that western scholars write as SIN. However the N and M are completely interchangable, as in MARINA and NARAYANI (so many examples could be given of the M-N sound shift). The vowels are speculations in restoring ancient languages that were written only with consonents. Furthermore their placement and sound does change due to time and curcumstance. Thus NARAYANA can become Egyptian MZRYM, Hebrew NAZAREAN, Biblical Mesopotamian NAHARAIM or Indic NARAIN, Narayana etc. Since Lord Baladeva was SOMA or CHONS-SOM the Supreme Lord of most ancient Jericho, Lord Baladeva as Jesus Christ customarily camped-out with His Disciples in Jericho, and was worshiped by His crowds of adoring Devotees, with His Sacred Palm fronds on Palm Sunday as He rode in triumph into JERU-SALEM / HERU-ASYLUAM / HIERO-SOLYM, HARYA-ASHALLAM, the Asylum of HARI-VASU (YAHU) / HELIOS/ ELI-YAHU/ ALLAH/ HRIH, HARYEH etc.

Rama-Hari or Rahu-Ketu?

Standard
In the ancient World the Lion was a pictorial pun, a HIERO (HARI) glyph for the Holy Name HERU / HELI / ELI / ARI / HARI.   Through the centuries the Man-Lion Form of their Lord ELI was called YAHU-TZABAOTH by the Hebrews Israelites, Judahites and Jews.  He was the Lord of TIME and Eternity/Infinity so His Alter-Form was His Uraeus the UN-ENDING / AN-ANTA Serpent of Infinity.  Thus He was often depicted with His Serpent or Naga (Hebrew Nachash).  Thus in Egypt and throughout the ancient World the combination of the Lion and the Serpent was a pictograph or Hiero-glyph for the Deity HERU-AUSU or HERU-WASU to the Egyptians, HELI-OS to the Greeks, SOLE-US to the Romans, ELO-AH, ELI-YAHU or ALLAH to the Biblical Semites and HARI-VASU or HARYAH / SURYA / HARIH / HARAH etc. to the people of India.
 
Lion-Headed Time is the Lord of the Jews as YAHU TZABAOTH.  HE delivered the Israelites and Mixed Multitude of HERU-AUSU / HELIOS / ELI-YAHU worshipers out of chattel slavery in Egypt, when ALL of the ‘HORUS’ (HERU-AUSU) worshipers were being enslaved and oppressed under the rule of the SETU / KETU ‘Satan’ worshipers.  The heretical Egyptian worship of SETU was patronised by the Hyksos Dynasty of Pharaohs from the Levant.  The Semitic Hyksos Setu worshipers enslaved their fellow Semitic Helios worshipers and the Mixed-Multitude of Helios / Heru-Ausu (Horus) worshipers in Egypt, and forced them to build their Setu-worshiping Capital City of AVARIS for them.  Rahu-KETU as the enemy of the Hari and the Devas is the story in Egypt of SETU as the envious Enemy of HERU and the THEOS (Hebrew TOBA) Bright Beneficient Good-Gods.  This Setu / KETU is remembered in the Biblical Tradition as SATAN, the Cosmic Enemy of God / ELI / HARI and His benevolent elohim ‘gods’.  Rahu-Ketu throughout India and the Orient is the cosmic and earthly Enemy of Hari-Vasu and the Devas.

How Old is Hindu Dharma?

Standard

Kumbha Mela-The World’s Largest Spiritual Gathering takes Place at the Confluence of the Sacred Rivers Yamuna, Ganga and Saraswati, Prayag, India. It was here the Creator Lord Brahma offered his first sacrifice to Purusha (God).

Properly, Sanatana Dharma cannot be called ‘Hindu’ or labled with any other such limiting term of reference, because BY DEFINITION it is eternal and universal. As the ordering laws of the universe or ‘nature’ cannot properly be called American, Russian or Indian (Indus = foreign word ‘Hindu’ for the people beyond the Indus River), Eternal Dharma cannot be said to be ‘Hindu’ or Indian, or time and place limited to any other collective of people or geographical region. If ‘Sanatana Dharma’ could be so limited, it would not be Sanatana Dharma. If you mean how old is some religion called ‘Hindu Dharma’, it would depend on exactly what ‘Hindu’ religion you are referring to. India / Bharata is the home of more than 700 languages and these peoples all have various religious views, which generally in modern times have fallen under the label of ‘Hindu’. I have traced-out the oldest of these living Traditions through over 40 years of exhaustive INTERDISCIPLINARY studies. From all of the available evidence of every kind, the Tradition that I have found with the greatest time depth and widest diffusion is the worship of HARI and/or HARA with Their Shaktis. The great sea and river basin civilizations all worshiped Hari by the Name of NR / MR / NHR / NHL or NRYN / NARAYANA. This is why the ancient Biblical Name of the entire Mesopotamian Region was NHRYM NAHARAIM / NARAYANA. In Egypt the Land of the NHL NILE was called MZRYM. NHRYM = MZRYM ‘Mizrayim’. Later MZRYM became NZRYN ‘NAZAREAN’. The NZRYN religion was that of the mikveoth or Sacred River Baptism practitioners. Thus in India, we can still see this practice in the Kumba Mela and in the other ritual ablutions performed in Sacred Rivers like the Ganga and Jamuna. Such purifying rites are also performed in kunds, lakes and ghats. Read the rest of this entry
