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

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 !

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.

Sacred Basil/Tulasi was given to Jesus Christ on His Cross!

Standard
Dear Friends, Please suspend your disbelief and any party-spirit sectarian prejudices to consider the evidence in this Album. The great living ancient-most Bhakti Traditions of the World are ALL historically and therefore theologically related as expressions-of the SAME PRIMAL DEVOTIONAL TRADITION to HARI, the Lord of the HRID / Heart, the Lord of Divine Grace / Mercy and Love!
From Bhakti Ananda Goswami: Sacred Basil / Tulasi was given to Jesus Christ on His Cross. It was dipped in HalaHala, the Sins of the Universe! When He had taken it, He said “It is Finished” and He ‘became sin for us’. Then a Martial Roman Soldier pierced His Side with the Vel of Skanda (Mars) that destroys sin ! Jesus accepted the Vel just as Krishna had in a previous Lila. Siva (or Vishnu) Nila-Kantha did NOT swallow the Hala Hala, but Jesus DID, and thus He descended to the Dead.

Some Traditions say Sacred Basil / Tulasi sprang-up where Jesus Christ’s Blood dropped on the ground. Other Traditions say that Sacred Basil sprang-up from Mary’s Tears. Still others relate that Holy Basil grew directly out of Jesus Christ’s Cross. Read the rest of this entry

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’! 

Remembering HH Bhakti Tirtha Swami

David/ Bhakti Ananda Goswami visiting with the sweet disciples of HH Bhakti Tirtha Swami, near Washington D.C., USA

Once when I was visiting HH Bhakti Tirtha Swami Maharaj, due to polio-related muscle weakness and heart trouble I was mostly bedridden and could not climb stairs to go to the bathroom. So Swamiji said for me to stay on the couch in the basement, where there was a toilet by the laundry. After midnight the first night, someone came quietly down the stairs and tip-toed to the laundry room with an armload of clothes. I was amazed to see that it was Bhakti Tirtha Swami!

I said, Maharaja, what are you doing? Why are you doing laundry at this hour? He replied “The laundry needs to be done, but the Devotees are tired. I wanted to let them sleep. I have rounds to chant anyway”. He stayed and talked with me a while and then went to chant some rounds. During the time that I was living in the basement, Swami would send Maha Prasadam down to me, and come to visit me late at night, while doing laundry and/or chanting his rounds. Eventually he had the Devotees make popcorn and he and about 20 Devotees would come to the basement in the evening to visit with me and listen to Swami and I discuss Vaishnavism in the Bible and ancient Africa.

As a Child Evangelist, Swami was VERY knowledgeable about the Bible, and he actually still loved Jesus very much, and meditated on Jesus taking the sins of His Devotees, and the whole World. We used to discuss Vasudeva Datta, the Catholic Saints who were Intercessors or ‘Victim Souls’ (Stigmatists) and the Pure Land Buddhist Bodhisattvas. He was very much in that mood of taking the vi-karma or sins of others to guarantee their salvation.  Read the rest of this entry

Jesus Christ’s Sacred Peacock Symbol

In the other pictures, Jesus as the Rig Vedic Cosmic Purusha and Sacred King is Sacrificed for the Sins of the World, on the Yupa Cross / Stanu Stambha of All Creation, and He is enthroned as the Triumphant Cosmic Lord. In these and the other pictures Jesus is symbolized by His Sacred Peacock or Fire-Bird / Phoenix

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.

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

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
