NILUS / NARAYANA / Jupiter Marinus with His Cornucopia, His TYCHE-FORTUNA / LAKSHMI at His Feet and Triptolemus ‘Plow Wielder’ Form etc. (The Farnese Cup) consider that the Sacred River Baptism, Seas and Oceans (Ashayana / Oceanus) ‘Father God’ Traditions of the NHL / NHR / MAR / NARA-NARAYANA Deity are all obviously related in both doctrines and practices. These Baptism related Religious Traditions have countless connections.
I have just watched this documentary “Constantine, Christianity, Mithraism, & Osiris”, and while it does cite some of the same evidence that I use, it is just like a meal laced with poison. There may be some taste and some nourishment in it, but its real purpose and effect will be to make its consumer sick. There is an ‘editorial perspective’ to it that is very obvious from its beginning to end.
This Simcha fellow is just like all of the rest of his ilk. He has no clue what the relationship was between the so-called gods and religions of the ancient Mediterranean Region. He is just parroting all of the other History (etc.) Channel talking heads who completely misunderstand the connections between these ‘gods’ and the groups that worshiped them. He cannot read the scenes on Constantine’s Arch of Triumph, and does not understand what he is looking at. For example, I have saved two important images from the video. These are of Jupiter Marimus as ‘Father Tiber’ the NARAYANA of Rome. Jupiter MARIMUS and Juno MARINA were NARAYANA and NARAYANI as worshiped at ROME. In Egypt the 4 Headed and Armed Form of Helios Phanes appeared on the Primordial Lotus from the prone Form of NHL NILUS / NILE (NARA), MZRYM / NHRYM/N. Without understanding the identity and importance of NILUS / MARIMUS / NHRYM (Hebrew, Bible = NHRYM = NAHARAIM = NARAYANA) this Simcha ‘researcher’ is just another one of the blind leading the blind.
I am so tired of these History (Discovery or National Geographic etc.) Channel talking heads who are simply pseudo-expert New Age panderers exploiting the popular Anti-Catholic sentiments of the historically and religiously mal-educated masses. They all want name, fame and adoration in the New Age ‘spiritual, not religious’ milleau for some sensational anti-Catholic or anti-Christian expose. Does anyone who watches this kind of garbage ever consider the bias of these ‘scholars’ ? This video asks if the image of the leader Maxentius as an evil pagan tyrant was “fabricated”! It is clearly biased against Constantine and the Holy Tradition regarding him that was shared by both the histories of the Eastern and Western Rites of the Apostolic Church.
While attacking Constantine, it makes some broad speculations about Maxentius as a good Ruler who was more favored by the Christians than Constantine. Such supposedly objective ‘researchers’ who are really trying to destroy Catholicism and faith in the Jesus of the Apostles, often attack Constantine as if his influence was all that mattered in the history of the One Holy cCatholic and Apostolic Church! This tactic only works with people who are so badly educated about the history of Christianity, that they are vulnerable to such rot. Consequently in this Age when people in general ARE uneducated or are very badly mal-educated, they are very vulnerable to being mis-led about the important realities of the past.

D. N. Wrote: Apparently in addition to this lion-headed form HEKA had a child HERU and a serpent handling Asclepius form as well!, see above link, and wiki article on Heka (god) too!
Bhakti Ananda Goswami Comments: When I found this AMUN-RA on the internet is was captioned HEKA. If you read the description of HEKA that you have linked, it is NOT iconographically cognate with this Form of HERU-AUSU as AMUN-RA. HEKA should instead be compared to the early Ayur Vedic Medicine Cultus of Ananta-Sesha-Naga as Dhanvantari.
The above Comment-posted Finger-to-Mouth Picture and the Finger-to-Mouth Picture on the Wiki HEKA page are of the same type of standing Harpocrates that is found on Horus Cippi protection and healing Stela. Please note that these are nothing like the Lion-Headed Subject of this Album. The Form of Harpocrates is rather to be identified with the Lion-Headed Form of HERU / HARI in other ways, for example by having a lion’s head surmount Him as a kind of pictographic determinative.
Like Harpocrates, Heka is a Form of HERU-AUSU-ATUM. HERU as Heka had Rhoda as HEKATE as His SHAKTI. HKT = SHAKTI and HEKATE, Egyptian SEKHET and Hebrew SHEKINAH. The Sri Yantra was the SIX pointed STAR ASTERIA, ISHTAR, ASTRAYA, TARA SATKONA HEXAD pictorial Pun for This Holy Name HK / HX, see SIX, HEX and SEX. The Sri Yantra is the HEXAD of the Masculine Purusha and the Feminine Prakriti or Shakti Triangles combined. Heka HK HX as a Form of HERU should not be confused with a modern occult understanding of ‘magic’. Such confusion will lead to the kind of statement made in the wiki article on the Metternich Stela: “…There is a winged man who represents the demonic solar god Harmeti.” This erroneous wiki statement is referring to the same Form of Amun-Ra as I have posted on this Page. Harmeti or Amun-Ra or Heka is NOT a ‘demon’ or a mere ‘solar god’!
Also to clarify, ‘HEKA’ (HX, SX) is a By-Name of the Seraphic Baladeva as Ananta Sesha Naga, not a linguistic cognate of His Name Sesha. So the Deity Sesha is also Heka, but the Name Sesha and the Name Heka are NOT linguistic ‘cognates’. The Wiki articles can be a good starting place for general inquiries, but they are also often representing some Western Esoteric Tradition occult or relatively modern New Age Organization self-serving perspective, and are therefore unreliable. In fact the WIKI articles are also full of covered-Aryanist doctrine. Look at the Wiki page for the word “cognate”. It gives some completely Racist Aryanist examples of cognate words. I will have to devote a page to this subject sometime.
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.
This is the Wrathful Leonid-Headed Cosmic Form of HELI / ELI / ALI / HERU / HARI / HARA as KALAH / TIME in His great I AM Theophany in the Bhagavad-Gita. In Egypt He was called HERU-AUSU Amun-Ra and identified with ZEUS CHRONUS (Time) and JUPITER SATURNUS (Time). This is the Murti of Him carved in relief on the top center of the Metternich Stela in this Album. Read the rest of this entry
In His Bhagavad-gita Sri Krishna reveals to His Friend, Arjuna, that He is the Original Supreme Personality of Godhead. Arjuna then becomes frightened when he sees the wrathful Universal Form of Krishna as Time / Kalah devouring the Worlds. Kalah, Bairav and Shiva are some of the other Names of this Lion-headed All-Devouring Form of Krishna, Nara-Hari. This Montage shows only a few of the countless ways that this Form of HARI is still worshiped as the Supreme Spirit and Protector of the Buddhists and Buddhist-related Hindus of India and the Orient.
Clockwise from the upper left is 1. HARI as Kalah Bairab, the Tibetan World-Devouring Lord of the Chakra Wheel of Time. 2. An Indian example of the New Year or Time (Kaula Month related) Festival Lion Dance, which is always performed for the Supreme Lord’s Blessing and Protection. Sometimes it is also connected to the individual’s or community’s purgation from sin. 3. The Barong Lion Dance of the entire Bali Region. Again the Lion is the Lord, the King of Spirits, Who forgives bad karma, blesses and protects individuals and communities in the coming year. 4. The Nepali and Tibetan Kalah Bairab worshipers also have their Lion Dances, but they combine these more directly with their animal sacrifices as a propitiation for the sins of the community. Note the late Buddhist version of the Egyptian, Persian, Indian and Cambodian Hem Hem Compound Crown of HERU-HOR, ELI-EL or HARI-HAR (Vishnu-Shiva) on this kid-Sacrificing Lion Dancer. 5. The Chinese celebrate their Lunar New Year in a very extravagant way, with their always-related Lion and Dragon Dances. The Dragon is of course Ananta Sesha Naga, the Ourobolos Serpent of Infinity, Who always accompanies Lord Hari as Time / Kalah. 6. In Japan the New Year is also celebrated with the Lion Dance called the Shi Shi Ma. There too the children along the parade route may be blessed and protected for the coming year by being ‘bitten’ by the Supreme Lord’s Lion Form! Read the rest of this entry
In Hebrew ARYEH is the Lion-Headed God of the JEWS. He is the Lord of the Exodus Story, YAHU-TZABAOTH, the Lord of Hosts (both Heavenly Hosts / Sun, Moon and Asterims, and Earthly Armies), Who the ancients identified with the Protector of Israel and Judah, the Lion-Headed Form of God
In the previous age Krishna-Kalah worshiped by all of humanity in his Lion-Headed Form of God as Time . Once Krishna-Vishnu as Lod Nara-Hari / KALAH / TIME was worshiped as the Supreme Lord World-wide! He was the Deliverer of the Jews and Mixed-Multitude in their Biblical Exodus from slavery in Egypt. KRISHNA- VISHNU NARA-HARI Leontocephalos Lion-Headed TIME / KALAH of the Bhagavad-Gita, as the Biblical YAHU-TZABAOTH and Zeus-Jupiter Chronos-Saturus, Egyptian HERU-AUSU-Ammon-RA, Kushite Apademak, Shaivite and Buddhist Kalah-Bairab, Mithraic Zervan, etc. HE, ARYEH / HARYAH is the “Lion of Judah”, NARA-HARI, the Biblical Exodus Deliverer and Protector of the Jews!
Did you know that Saturn’s-Day Sabbath-Keeping is widely associated with the worship of Krishna-Vishnu as Nara-Hari Kalah, the all-devouring Supreme Lord as Lion-Headed TIME? From Tamil Nadu to Nepal, I, Bhakti Ananda Goswami, have seen Vaishnava Calendars with Saturday Sabbaths marked-off and decorated with Sri Yantras, the ‘Megan David’ ‘Star’ of Israel and Judah / the Jews.

VIRACOCHA is the Supreme God of all of the Andean Tribes and has religious cognates throughout the tribes of the Western Hemisphere. His worship had an ancient center near lake Titicacha and Machu Picchu. The Great Flood Story was prominent among the Andean Tribes and there are many connections between the worship of Vishnu in the Vedic-Vaishnava Flood Story of MANU and the Cultus of Viracocha in the Region of this Lake and Machu Picchu. Macha Puchara ‘Matsya’s Fin’ is the Sacred Peak in the Himalayas that is shaped like Machu Picchu. The totem-pole style of the multi-headed Form of Vishnu / Avalokiteshvara, especially the Bhagavad-gita related Kalah Form is quite obviously the totem-pole style multi-headed Form of Viracocha. Vairocana is a sectarian by-Name of the Adi Purusha in Mahayana Buddhism. There may be a connection between the Names themselves, but the Deity in both cases is obviously the Adi Purusha, the Cosmic and Supra-Cosmic Lord of All. Viracocha in His totem pole style multi-headed Form. Compare this to the Mahayana Buddhist totem pole style multi-headed Forms of Avalokiteshvara/Vishnu. Some of the Forms of Viracocha the Andean Supreme God are recognizably Forms of Vishnu. Read the rest of this entry
