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.

The Golden Avatar – The Golden Hari Predicted in the Vedic Scriptures

Sri Panchatattva Dancing in the Forest

Dear Friends and Family, Today as we celebrate the appearance of the GOLDEN AVATARA, let us renew our vows and dedication to the non-sectarian Mission of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s HARI NAMA SANKIRTAN Movement! Accross the ancient Earth / Eartha / Bertha / Ephrata / Fertile Bharata, ‘Golden’ was one of the primary meanings of the primal H R Name of God. Rather, the color Gold / Yellow was a primary visual or pictorial PUN for the Holy Name HARI / HERU / ARI etc. In some form this H R / H L etc. Holy Name of God was the near ‘universal’ Holy Name recognized by every tribal and linguistic group. Thus in Africa we find HERU in Egypt and OLU in Nigeria. The Supreme Lord was HELI, (Kouru etc.) to the Greeks and SOLE to the Romans. He was ELI, ARI, ALI etc. to the Semites, HVARE to the Persians, and Hari, Hara and Sura etc. in the East. Thus everyone worshped the Supreme Lord HARI at the dawn of Human Civilization in this Age / Yuga. How is it possible that to revive the lost devotion and unity of the One Human Family, Srila Prabhupada performed the unthinkable austerity to come here and recruit us into Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s Non-Sectarian World-unifying Mission of the Hari Nama Sankirtan Movement! When we call on GAURA HARI let us be reminded that GAURA is the SAME NAME as HARI, meaning GOLDEN! Thus there is no difference between the Holy Names of GAURA and HARI! In His infinite variegatedness, the Lord’s Names and Forms are simultaneously and inconceivabably One and Different! Let us glorify Him by His Holy Names in every town and village! Gaura Hari! Hari Hari Bol! Happy Gaura Purnima everyone! Read the rest of this entry
