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

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.

Russian word for God is BOG – Rooted in the Sanskrit Bhagavan

Standard

MI0001020312 (1)Linguists have long known that the Russian word for God, is BOG. I have just written the following for you and for all of our Friends here. Please Share it with others.

Slavic cCatholics and Other Devotees Call Their God BOG, as in BHAGAVAN!

An important Sanskrit Name for HARI, or Krishna-Vishnu, from the Vaishnava Scriptures is Bhagavan, from the root Bhag. The words Bhoga and Bhakti are from the same root. Among Slavic-Language Peoples, the Apostolic cCatholic Tradition of Jesus Christ has always used the BHAG-related Name of Hari (Biblical ELI) for “GOD”. Thus Slavic cCatholics call their GOD some variation of the Holy Name BOG (Sanskrit BHAG, Bhagavan).

ALL of the Russian-Language related “BOG” Names for God are known by Slavic linguistic experts to be related to the Sanskrit word BHAG. Unfortunately there is no pervasive realization among the Christian lay masses or even the religious devotees or scholars that they are refering to their GOD by an important Holy Name of HARI / ELI or Krishna-Vishnu.

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

Standard

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

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.

The Golden Avatar – The Golden Hari Predicted in the Vedic Scriptures

Sri Panchatattva Dancing in the Forest

Sri Panchatattva Dancing in the Forest

Dear Friends and Family, Today as we celebrate the appearance of the GOLDEN AVATARA, let us renew our vows and dedication to the non-sectarian Mission of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s HARI NAMA SANKIRTAN Movement! Accross the ancient Earth / Eartha / Bertha / Ephrata / Fertile Bharata, ‘Golden’ was one of the primary meanings of the primal H R Name of God. Rather, the color Gold / Yellow was a primary visual or pictorial PUN for the Holy Name HARI / HERU / ARI etc. In some form this H R / H L etc. Holy Name of God was the near ‘universal’ Holy Name recognized by every tribal and linguistic group. Thus in Africa we find HERU in Egypt and OLU in Nigeria. The Supreme Lord was HELI, (Kouru etc.) to the Greeks and SOLE to the Romans. He was ELI, ARI, ALI etc. to the Semites, HVARE to the Persians, and Hari, Hara and Sura etc. in the East. Thus everyone worshped the Supreme Lord HARI at the dawn of Human Civilization in this Age / Yuga. How is it possible that to revive the lost devotion and unity of the One Human Family, Srila Prabhupada performed the unthinkable austerity to come here and recruit us into Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s Non-Sectarian World-unifying Mission of the Hari Nama Sankirtan Movement! When we call on GAURA HARI let us be reminded that GAURA is the SAME NAME as HARI, meaning GOLDEN! Thus there is no difference between the Holy Names of GAURA and HARI! In His infinite variegatedness, the Lord’s Names and Forms are simultaneously and inconceivabably One and Different! Let us glorify Him by His Holy Names in every town and village! Gaura Hari! Hari Hari Bol! Happy Gaura Purnima everyone! Read the rest of this entry

Apostolic Christian Theology and Vaishnava Theology are One & the Same

Standard
This rare representation of Shiva, formerly in the Shri K.C. Aryan collection and published in a book on that collection, is known as the Sadashiva in the iconographic texts. It shows Shiva with five heads (panchanana - 'pancha' means five) each surmounted by tall crowns. The legs and forearms are massive and present a sharp contrast with the slimmer faces and four sets of tubular side arms (one side arm is missing.)The semi-circular arch of the prabhavali encloses the five heads. The heads correspond to the four diamond and one circular motifs on the front of the high pedestal.The arms hold various attributes. There is ample jewellery cast onto the prominent chest.  Moon and star symbols are on the five foreheads and on the crest of the prabhavali. A shield is held in the left front forearm; it is in the 'cross and dot' style of southern India.The image has been cast in white brass. It is solid cast except for the pedestal. As such, it is heavy for its size.The late K.C. Aryan, from whose collection this image has come, founded the Museum of Folk, Tribal & Neglected Art near New Delhi. Sadashiva images with five heads are few. There is a sixth century seven-metre high Sadashiva carved from the rock face in the cave temple of Shiva on Elephanta Island, near Mumbai (Bombay). However, the Elephanta example has three obvious heads only. Highly Unusual Sadashiva, Karnataka, India 17th-18th century

The Apostolic cCatholic Jesus Christ has history and theology that is connected to every major Branch of the ancient World’s Radha-Krishna-centric Vaishnavism. This is because the Divine Revelatory Tradition of Jesus is connected to the Brahma Lineage of Global Vaishnavism, just like the Gaudiya Vaishnava Tradition is! Thus if we go back far enough in both the Gaudiya Vaishnava Tradition and the JUDEO-cCatholic Apostolic (Heliopolitan or Afro-Heleno-Semitic Mediterranean) Tradition, we find the very SAME revelatory Tradition!

Actually PURE LAND BUDDHISM and Sattvic Theistic Shaivism and many other ancient global Eastern AND Western Hemisphere Sacred Traditions are also historically and theologically related to our same Revelatory Lineage ‘coming from’ Brahma, Surya and Manu, the Father of Humanity. In these related lineages there are always the parallel Traditions of transmitting the understanding of Divine Revelation, one being Theological or logical and analytical, dealing with everything from philosophy and physics to metaphysics, and the other mode of transmission being the narration of Lila or ‘Pastime’ Stories, in which the Transcendental, Mediating and Immanent Godhead and His Shakti is revealed.

So, there are two ways to understand the Holy Scriptures and Oral traditions of the Vaishnavas. One is as deeply meditated-upon and analysed THEOLOGICAL REVELATION. The other is as emotionally and psychologically experienced LILA. The LILA is the Story, the PLAY. In the Theological Approach we focus on Who the Actor IS. The ACTOR has been revealed as GOD HIMSELF. We understand the profound SELF-REVELATION of GOD, through HIS STORY-TELLING LILAS. HE REVEALS something of HIMSELF in His PASTIMES. What is that SOMETHING? To understand His Self-Revelation we must read, listen-to and reflect-on, meditate-on His Theology as explained to us through the PARAMPARA of His Self-Realized Devotees. We cannot understand the Theology of the Persons of the Godhead without the REALIZED spiritual direction and intellectual formation of the Mahatmas who have actually EXPERIENCED Knowing Him. The Great Souls KNOW THE ACTOR! He has an OMNI-PRESENT OMNISCIENT and OMNIPOTENT existence outside-of the PLAY. Read the rest of this entry
