Balarama, Khonsu and the Moon

Standard

10644806_10152403302972858_1937590574603549027_nTo begin to understand this complicated subject, we can start with what is mentioned in this wiki article.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khonsu

“Khonsu (alternately Chonsu, Khensu, Khons, Chons or Khonshu) is an Ancient Egyptian god whose main role was associated with the moon. His name means “traveller” and this may relate to the nightly travel of the moon across the sky. Along with Thoth he marked the passage of time. Khonsu was instrumental in the creation of new life in all living creatures. At Thebes he formed part of a family triad with Mut as his mother and Amun his father. At Kom Ombo he was worshipped as son of Sobek and Hathor.[1]”

The Lunar-related regional CHN or KHN Name of the Supreme Lord YAHU-SM/N YAHU-SOMA (Egyptian IAH, Sumerian EA, Vedic-Vaishnava YA, AH, AS, VAS, VISH, USH etc.) was cognate with the CHANdra of the East. The words CANDLE and CHANDRA are linguistically related or ‘cognates’. As the Golden SUN HARI lights up the external world of the DAY, the White or Silver MOON lights up the otherwise dark Night and the INTERNAL WORLD of the MIND. Thus BL-YAHU-SM/N (Baladeva Vasudeva as SOMA) is both the Lord Who Lights up the Dark Night of the external World, and He is also the Lord Who ENLIGHTENS THE INTERNAL MIND AND SOUL-SELF OF HUMANITY. In this capacity HE is the Original and only Internal Enlightener and Spiritual Master of Humanity. It is HE Who gives us INTERNAL VISION and WISDOM, behind our eyelids, inside of our minds where the light of the SUN cannot shine! He is thus the Lord of memory and imagination, of reason and of all mental processes.

For some of His other attributes, let us consider His Icon above…

He is FIRST the Eternally KOUROS ‘HUMAN’ YOUTH. Thus He has His Youthful Form with His long KOUROS sidelock of hair. See my Tonsure Album here on facebook for more on this ‘Side lock of Youth’. The tied-on symbolic Beard that He is wearing identifies Him with the ‘Ancient of Days’ and Prajapati FATHER of Creation. The Lunar Determinative ‘crown’ on His Head is the Bouvine ‘Horns of the Moon’ that identifies Him with YAHU-BL as the BL-SOMA Lunar Lord of Jericho, and the Egyptian HAP-AUSAR-PTAH APIS BULL of Heliopolis and Memphis. This Lunar Crown also identifies Him with His Lunar-related Shakti (HEXAD / Hekate / Sekhet / SHEKINAH) as HET-HERU (HAT-HOR / Hathor) as BETH-EL (Mary as the ‘House of God’). His Green, Blue or Blackish etc. Bodily Colors variously identify Him with His Water, Day and Night Sky, Vegetal and Earth Manifestations. His decorated HERU Eyes often invoke His EKA / ECHAD ‘Uchat’ Eye Symbols of Oneness and Emanation. To understand these Symbols, see how the Symbol for EKA is incorporated into the IMMANENT OMNIPRESENT ALL-SEEING EYES of HARI as AVALOKITESHVARA in Pure Land and related Tantric Buddhism in Nepal and Tibet (See my photos of the famous Swyambhunatha and Bodhinatha Stupas in Nepal).

The Original and Final Word on YOGA

Standard
paramatmaDoes YOGA Mean to MERGE Two Entities into ONE Entity, or One Non-Entity?  Or is YOGA About the RELATIONSHIP that JOINS Two Together?

The Sanskrit root of the word YOGA can most significantly be found in the cognate (linguistically related) Greek root    of the Biblical word  zeugnymi, the root of the Latin Biblical word iugum, the root of the English Biblical word YOKE and the theological word conJUGal as in Sacramental Marriage and the theology of Bridal Mysticism.  What does this word mean in terms of JOINING TWO-AS-ONE?

In all of the known words with this root, the meaning is to unite TWO as One, as in a YOKE of oxen, or in the LOVE of conJUGal or Bridal Mysticism.  This word NEVER MEANS to in any way dissolve or anihilate TWO entities and merge them into One!  Even in the word Conjugal Love, the concept of TWO BODIES JOINED AS ONE IN SEXUAL UNION, does NOT mean that the two Spirit-Souls have ceased to exist!  Thus the ONE FLESH of the Biblical New Testament, Book of Mark, Chapter 10, Verse 9 specifically mentions the FLESH of the conJUGal union of natural marriage.

10.9  “And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.”

As Spirit-Souls the Lover and Beloved do not cease to be two conscious entities. They do not merge to become a single conscious entity, or die (cease to exist) to become a new single entity with the memories and attributes of the former two.

NARA-HARI, Exodus & the Jewish PERAZON, HAREDIM & DOSSIM People of God, Part 3 (Love Requires Freedom)

Standard

A SHIRE is an ASYLA and a Dharma- ASHALA.  Here is a short, and very deficient introduction to the subject of Redemption, MOKSHA / MISSA MANU-MISSION and Religious Salvation as ASYLA.  I have studied MOKSHA / MANUMISSION, ASYLA and the ancient religio-political Alliances, Leagues and Federations of Asyla for over 40 years.  The history of the ancient World could be summed-up as a perpetual struggle between the lovers of freedom and the One True benevolent Sattva Guna God, HERU-VASU-ATUM / ELI-YAHU-ADON / HARI-VASU-ATMAN that they worshiped, and the cruel enslaving forces of the self-appointed False Gods of The World.  The below references completely miss the connections of the anti-slavery forces to Helios Worship, and do not understand the relationship between the Eastern and Western Bhakti Yoga ‘Free Will’ and Divine Love Traditions. LOVE requires self-possession and the physical freedom to serve the person or persons of one’s own desiring.  Thus FREEDOM of relationship is necessary in the religious, the divine, and in the merely human realm. LOVE necessitates FREEDOM.  Spiritual, intellectual and physical Freedom is fundamentally necessary to active LOVING.  LOVE as DEVOTIONAL SERVICE cannot be incarnated without the physical opportunity and ability or facility to do so.  Thus both freedom as opportunity and freedom as disciplined “skillful means” is necessary for the fullest and most perfect expression of Love.   Read the rest of this entry

Buddha Did Teach About God

Standard

1. According to the evidence of Original Pure Land form of Buddhism, Siddhartha Gautama Buddha (Shakyamuni) did reveal the existence of God, as the triune Tri-Kaya or Three Bodies / Forms or Purushas / Persons of the Godhead.

1. Adi Purusha Dharma Kaya = Hrih (Sri Krishna),

2. His emanation savior form = Sambhogya Kaya Hrih (Balarama-Vishnu)

3. His all-pervasive form in the heart of all beings = Rupa Kaya Hrih (Paramatma / Hrih in the heart.) According to the pure land-related Mahayana Buddhist tradition, these teachings could not be heard, received or understood by those of the Theravadin mentality. Only those with the Bodhi heart of compassion could receive the pure land teachings.   Read the rest of this entry
