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

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 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
With his Father’s computer help, Bhakti Ananda Goswami is beginning to put together a series of thematic Albums to present his research and realizations, and to document his lifetime of devotional service activities and achievements Since some people are still trying to discredit his scholarship and thus suppress the diffusion of this important information, it is necessary for him to provide such documentation and references regarding his decades of arduous and extraordinary interdisciplinary research work. After assisting Bhakti Ananda Goswami with his 2000 West Coast USA “Pharaohs of the Sun” Museum Exhibit related Lecture Tour, Vrindavan Brannon Parker again met-up with Bhakti Ananda Goswami at the 2000 World Association of Vedic Studies WAVES Conference, which was held at the Steven’s Institute of Technology in Hoboken New Jersey, USA. Vrin was there to deliver his own WAVES-accepted research Paper, on two subjects related-to Bhakti Ananda Goswami’s 1983 Master’s Thesis. Bhakti Ananda Goswami’s two 1983 Master’s Thesis related research Papers were personally accepted for Goswami’s WAVES Conference Presentation by the WAVES Founder and President, Prof. Bhudev Sharma.
The Three Lotus Blossoms represent HERU / HARI as TRI-LOKESHVARA the Lord of the Three Worlds of Yesterday Today and Tomorrow. The Nile Lotus that blooms for only one day is used to depict the idea of the three realms of the Past, Present and Future. A careful study of these 3 blossom Egyptian Lotus Iconographic ideograms shows that one of the Blossoms is spent and the other has not yet opened. The Lotus itself, or ‘water lilly’ is a pictorial pun or HIERO glyph for the Name of God-Ess, Nyphos-Nymphia. Nymph in Greek means both young or virginal as in Helios KOUROS and Rhoda KORE (Krishna and Radha) or the Roman Jupiter JUVENalis and Juno JUVENta, Krishna YUAVANA and Radha YAUVANI. NYMPH also means LOTUS or WATER LILLY. On Their Sacred Isle of Rhodes in the Ancient Mediterranean Sea, Radha and Krishna had many Names and Nymphia and Nymphos were two of them. By this N ‘seed’ Bija Mantram Name, They were the eternal virginal YOUNG / YAUVAN YOUTH and MAIDEN. They were also PADMA (Lotus) and PADMA-PATI. They were HARI and HARINI and Lotus (PADMA, NARAYANI, SRI, LAXMI) and Lotus-Husband, or Lotus-Father (NARAYANA, HARI, Vishnu, Vasudeva). Please also notice the emblems or symbols of HARPOCRATES in this Icon. These depict His Names and reveal His Theology. They also show what the Religio-Political Alliances were of those who worshiped Him in this Form. Beginning from the base, which is usually a wavey-water line HIEROglyph for the Name-Form of NHL-HAP NARA-NARAYANA as the Vedic APA Deva, the Three Lotuses of the Past, Present and Future sprout. HERU is eternally PRESENT. So, He is especially depicted on the open blossom of TODAY.

The Divine Brothers Krishna and Balaram
The Hymn that is analyzed in this important Textbook is all-important for understanding the worship of Helios Megistos Kouros on the Sacred Lotus Isle of Rhodes, and how this Heliopolis-related Trinitarianism is related to the Eastern worship of Radha-Krishna and Baladeva. As with the primary Texts for the study of Asclepius and the Jewish Miniatures, to sort-out what is essential for our understanding requires some in-depth knowledge of the still-surviving cultus of Sri Sri Radha-Krishna and Baladeva. By comparing the living Vrindavan-Mathura Tradition of the Megistos Kouros Krishna to the ancient worship of the Megistos Kouros in the Mediterranean, we can actually understand what Prof. J.E. Harrison was unable to. She had no deep insight into the Great Living Tradition of the Megistos Kouros to illuminate her studies, but we do! Using the Living Radha-Krishna and Baladeva centric Tradition of Vaishnavism as a template, we can identify the essential elements of the Primal Megistos Kouros and Kore Divine Love Tradition, and avoid the confusion created by the later development of Astrology-related Greco-Roman Polytheism, Gnosticism and the many other adversarial thought-systems patronised by the slave-keeping ‘false gods of the world’. In the beginning of the Rhodian-based Heliopolitan Asyla Federations, Kouros and Kore as God Ess dwelt on Earth as Polieus and Tyche in each of Their Sanctuaries. Their entire Nome or Temple City-State Society was the Incarnate Mystical Social Body of Their Vastu (Egyptian WASET) of Purusha/Polieus and Hladini Shakti Tyche. Today Their ancient Polis has now become a Parish and the Sacramental Social Body of the Polieus/Purusha is now the Sacramental Mystical Social Body of Jesus Christ Polieus/Purusha. In Vaishnavism and Pure Land Buddhism the ancient Theo-Centric Temple Societies of Purusha and Prakriti (Shakti) still exist, but they are no longer allied in great Asyla Temple City-State Federations as they once were in the past.
