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.

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.
