None Come to the Father Hari Except thru the Grace of Balarama – Bal-Yahu

Standard

ScreenHunter_16-Aug.-02-19.36Prabhupad says that Maha-Visnu comes from Baladev/Balarama in TLC Introduction:

“[…]The manifestations of the Supreme are also explained in Caitanya-caritāmṛta. After offering respects to Lord Caitanya, Kṛṣṇadāsa Kavirāja next offers them to Nityānanda. He explains that Nityānanda is a manifestation of Saṅkarṣaṇa, who is the origin of the Mahā-Viṣṇu. Kṛṣṇa’s first manifestation is as Balarāma and then Saṅkarṣaṇa, and after Saṅkarṣaṇa He is manifest as Pradyumna. In this way so many expansions take place. Although there are many expansions, Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa is the origin, as confirmed in Brahma-saṁhitā. […]”http://causelessmercy.com/?P=TLCIntoduction

Thankyou Bhakta Peter for this Quote. Although Lord Balarama was originally worshiped by all of Humanity, with the onset of Kali Yuga (Age = Yuga) proper information and realization of His Self Revelation became distorted and then forgotten by much of the Human family. However, the ancient Sanskrit Vedic-Vaishnava Shastras (Scriptures) and Their AUTHORIZED COMMENTARIES are like a ‘time machine’ that can take us all of the way back to the Original Revelation, to MEET the Divine Revelator and Master of Mysteries, Lord Balarama HIMSELF!

Although the revelatory theology of Lord Balarama, Sri Krishna’s Second Self, is spread throughout ALL of the Vedic-Vaishnava Scriptures, in the Gaudiya Vaishnava Tradition of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the traditional ancient Brahma Lineage Theology of Lord Balarama is especially preserved and elaborated-on in the context of describing the attributes, activities and theology of Sri Nityanananda-Balarama, Who is considered to be Lord Balarama’s Avatara in the Divine Lila of Sri Sri Gaura-Nitai.

Thus to understand Lord Balarama from the Gaudiya-related perspective of the Brahma Sampradaya (Lineage) of Vaishnavism, which is historically and theologically related to the Afro-Helleno-Semitic Judeo-cCatholic Tradition of the ancient Mediterranean, one should carefully study the Vaishnava Scriptural Translations and Traditional Gaudiya Vaishnava Commentaries of the Modern Era Gaudiya Vaishnava Master, Srila Prabhupada.

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.

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 !

Corinthia ,south of Athens, Greece painted in the wall of a ruin this picture strongly resembles the Cow tending flute playing Lord Krishna.

HARI-VASU-ATMAN / KRISHNA-BALADEVA-PARAMATMAN is the Original Supreme Personality of Godhead.  Did you know that Lord Ananta-Baladeva, the Rig Vedic Cosmic Purusha Himself, once secretly Incarnated as the Great Physician CHARAKA to deliver ALL HUMANITY from birth, death disease and old age? 

In the Mediterranean Region Charaka  was prophetically worshiped as IASAS / YASHAS (YAHU-SHUA / JESUS) Asclepios of the Greeks, Aesculapius of the Romans, Osiris-Serapis of the Egyptians and Eshmun in Phonecia. He was the most well-known, loved and worshiped God of the entire Region for thousands of years.  Within 100 years of the Appearance of Jesus Christ, the worship of Charaka (Serapis, Iasas etc.) became the worship of the Cosmic Purusha and Great Physician Jesus Christ, whose Rig Vedic Self-Sacrifice “…takes away the sins of the World (Cosmos)”.

In the Mediterranean Region the Original Supreme Personality of Godhead, worshiped by the greatest ascetic saints, mystics, prophets, philosophers, scientists, artists, heroes and kings, was HERU-WASU-ATEN / ELI-YAHU-ADON / HELI-OS-ATOMOS (HARI-VASU-ATMAN) and on His Sacred BUCOLIC (GOKULA) LOTUS (NYMPHIA) ISLAND of RHODA, HE was worshiped exclusively as the Meghistos Kouros or Greatest Youth, KRISHNA! He was considered the ORIGIN of ALL of the (Purusha male, giver) Greek ‘Gods’ and His feminine receiver Prakriti Shekinah / Shakti RHODA (RADHA) was considered the ORIGIN of all of the Greek ‘Goddesses’!

The Peacock, Phoenix and Golden Pheasant, Cock and related birds were interchangeble as belonging to one of the important categories of the Sacred Birds of HERU, HELI, ELI, ALI or HARI (etc.). Specifically the Peacock common to India was also the Emblem of the Jewish Deity ELI and His Royal House of King David and Solomon of Jerusalem. Thus the Peacock also represented Jerusalem, Judah, Israel, Judaism and Jesus Christ as the Jewish Messiah.

The Peacock, which was often interchangeble with the Phoenix, was also an important symbol of Helios and His Sacred Cities of Heliopolis, the original City of Heliopolis (AUM/N AMUN, AMEN, ON) in Egypt, and the later City of Heliopolis Baalbek in Lebanon.  Read the rest of this entry

The Sacred Peacock was the Symbol of the One True God

Standard
Krishna Peacock Montage 5
Please study the Sacred Peacock and its closest relatives, the Phoenix, Quetzal, Golden Pheasant, Mediterranean or Persian Cockerel etc., which were sacred and propagated around the World by the Devotees of the Supreme Lord.  Some of them Heralded the Dawn, and were thus widely revered for their sensitivity to the first light of the day. The Peacock and Persian or Domestic Cock (Rooster, see Wiki) were both important in Judaism, and in the Schools devoted to Asclepios Iasas (Jesus, Ananta-Charaka) the Great Physician.     
The most familiar Peacock itself was imported from India by the Bible’s King Solomon (Jewish Scriptures [Christian Old Testament], Kings 10:22, 2 Chron. 9:21), and was the Symbol of the Royal Messianic Lineage of David.  Scholars have long recognized that the ancient Biblical word for Peacock comes from Tamil Nadu South India.

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

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.

The Three Lotus Blossoms of Ancient Egypt – Symbolize God as the Past, Present and Future

Standard

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.

A New Book On the History of Religion & Civilization: The Serpent, The Eagle, The Lion and the Disk

Standard

The Serpent The Eagle The Lion & The Disk

By Brannon Parker

Paperback, 469 Pages

The Serpent The Eagle The Lion & The Disk‘The Serpent, the Eagle, the Lion and the Disk’ The preeminent symbols of the sacred in the ancient world. The Ancients associated these symbols with the Divine. Many theories have been developed regarding these symbols yet the mystery still remains. This is particularly true of the aniconic winged disk symbol. How and why does the same symbol have the same meaning to so many people of diverse cultures and civilizations? Was it the symbol of an all-conquering triumphalist Egyptian or Sumerian Empire or perhaps of a vanished race from beyond the stars? Or is it a representation of a universal transcendent experience? The pieces of this puzzle have long been scattered throughout history, hidden amongst the mystical traditions of the world. Unravel the truly astounding and majestic history of religion, civilization and God. This book represents a Startling Revelation and a Revolutionary New Look at the Origins of Humanity’s Common Mystical Experience, its Religion, Culture and the Rise of Civilization. Researching and writing on this subject represents a tremendous journey into the ancient world, with all its mystery and splendor. Rather than soulless brutal stories of ‘burial cults’, ‘survival of the fittest’ and ‘scheming priests and kings’ scenarios, it was refreshing to recognize that the roots of civilization are genuinely positive. Civilization originally developed as a reflection of humanity’s spiritual inclinations. As an example when cities were built, they were built and architecturally planned as forms of Purusha (God), thus they are called ‘pur, puri, burry, borough, burg’, etc. The research shows that, rather than similar Gods and Goddesses being worshiped in these ‘boroughs’ throughout the world, it was the same God and Goddess being worshiped. Our common and long forgotten history reveals the diverse and unique methods that multitudes of cultures interacted with these same divinities. Civilization and culture are but reflections of the depth of Humanity’s conscious connection with the ‘Sacred’. Read the rest of this entry
