Dear Family and Friends, Please put aside any preconceived notions that you might have about who the mere astrological planetary regent Greco-Roman ‘sun god’ Helios-Apollo was, and try to understand that all such mundane polytheistic ideas were a very late devolution of unified humanity’s original, primal emanational and incarnational devotional Monotheism. In that Monotheism the Original Supreme Personality of Godhead was the 1. Transcendent, 2. Mediating (Emanating and Incarnating) and 3. Immanent HARI, Who as God-Who-Is-Love was HARI, the LORD OF ALL HEARTS, and the HEART OF THE COSMOS / CREATION. HARI dwelt in the CORE, HRID / HEART HRIDAYA/ HARI-DAYA of All BEINGS and THINGS! Thus HE was not just some mundane solar planetary regent or just the planetary ‘father’ of our local solar system.

He was the Source of ALL ‘Spiritual and Material Worlds’! As the Lord of LOVE / LOBHA, Rasa Raja, the REX, REGENT, Hebrew RAZAN, RAJA KING of all flavors of Holy Love, He was worshiped in His ‘Original Form’ as Meghistos Kouros, with His Supreme Shekinah (Shakti) Rhoda-Kore on Their Sacred Lotus Island of Rhoda-Nymphia-Asteria in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Thus the worship of Srimati Radha Rani, Sri Krishna and Their Supreme Hierophant Baladeva was at the historical and theological HEART of all human progress in the ancient World!

To understand this astounding truth, we must go back past the corrupted and degraded forms of mundane polytheism that devolved from the original Monotheistic Bhakti Yoga devotion to Radha-Krishna and Their Sole Master of Divine Love Mysteries, The World Savior, Lord Bala Deva. This means that we must clear our minds (and hearts) of the prejudicial nonsense that we have been taught, and re-examine the evidence of history and theological Revelation, from a new perspective, which is in fact the oldest ‘angle of vision’…that of our primal Human unity as One People of God, HARI, the Transcendent-Mediating-Immanent Loving Lord of All Hearts!

Tara: The Worship of MA Kuan Yin Has NOT Developed From the Separate Worship of Lokeshvara

Standard

Everywhere and at all times in the ancient world, when tending-towards sattvic people worshiped the Supreme Lord and His Shakti/Shekinah, They were ALWAYS worshiped TOGETHER. Thus all forms of Pure Land Buddhism have their origins in the worship of both AMITA-BHA and His SHAKTI. Tara (STAR, ASTRAYA/ASTAREA/STELLA) is one of the Shaktis of Vishnu, and when Pure Land Devotional Buddhism spread into China, TARA was initially worshiped along with Avalokiteshvara (Vishnu) as MA Guan Yin. The earliest Icons/Murtis of Guan Yin that are masculine are simply the Father Avalokiteshvara Kuan Yin Form. As the devotion to Ma Guan Yin (TARA) became ever more popular, the devotion to Father Guan Yin (Lokeshvara) both receded in importance and became absorbed-into a kind of we-don’t-know-and-we-don’t-care devotion to the rather a-sexual form of Guan Yin.  Read the rest of this entry
