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

Standard

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.

[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’! 

The Shakti (Shekinah) of the Supreme Lord Hari (Heru) & the Peacock

The Shakti (Shekinah) of the Supreme Lord Heru-Ausu-Atum / ELI-YAHU-ADON / Hari-Vasu-Atman is also associated with His Sacred Peacock. This montage illustrates how the Roman Juno and Greek Hera ‘Queen Mother of the gods’ was typically depicted with Her Sacred Peacock. Note that She is depicted either seated with Her Peacock by Her Queen’s Throne, or in a peacock VEHicle WAGON VAHANA. This is important because in Indian and Oriental Vaishnava and Pure Land (Mahayana) Buddhist Iconography, Hari or Krishna-Vishnu’s Shakti as Sarasvati (Biblical SARAH-CHOKMAH / SOPHIA HOLY WISDOM) is seated-on a Peacock Asana (Throne) or rides a Peacock Vahana (Vehicle / Wagon). I hope to make a montage to illustrate this next.

 

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.

MERENTA EXCAVATION-FRASIKLEIA-KOUROS (Greek Radha Krishna)

Standard

IMG_0398

Rhoda-Kore and Helios Kouros are the Origin of ALL of the Heliopolitan-Monotheism related Afro-Helleno-Semitic ‘Greek Gods and Goddesses’.  Note in the this image (left) that RHODA-Kore (RADHA-Hare) has Her pictorial pun RED Dress on!

Why have these Kore and Kouros Murti Pairs been found at the bottom of the Mediterranean, buried like the Merenta Excavation Pair (images below), or preserved in the Vatican and other Catholic collections?  It is because of the Iconoclastic (Sacred Image-smashing) Controversy and the near total destruction of early Christian and other sacred Art by the followers of M*hammed.  The Catholic Leaders who fought against the Iconoclasts, tried to rescue the Sacred Art of their religious domain, especially the so -called ‘cult images’ of the Proto-Catholic Heliopolitan Tradition. The Great Rhodian School of Monumental Stone Murti Sculpture in-the-round was unparalled in the ancient World. Techniques from the Masters of Rhodes were transmitted to the Murti Makers of Pure Land Buddhism and Vaishnavism at centers like Gandhara and Mathura.

In these related Pure Land Buddhist and Vaishnava Traditions, to avoid desecration of a Sacred Murti of the Lord or Shakti, if there is no other way to protect Sri Murti, the Form of the Lord or Shakti must be buried or cast into a deep body of water!  Where this was not accomplished, the Iconoclasts (Murti smashers) delighted in disfiguring, beheading and dismembering the so-called ‘Cult Images’ of the ancient Mediterranean Region. They also defaced and destroyed countless other works of Sacred Art.  This is why the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea is littered with countless ‘Cult Images’ from the tiny home-shrine type to great Temple Murtis weighing tons.  Such Murtis were deposited there before or after desecration, to protect Them from further insult and injury.  Burying Murtis on land was an alternative to burial at sea.  Thus many more such ‘Cult Images’ will no doubt be found as research progresses in areas that were once invaded and ruled by Muslims or other Iconoclasts.

Discover One Godhead – East & West – The Holy Trinity & Atenism Explained

Standard

Bhakti Ananda Goswami aka David M. Sherman Speaks on the Holy Trinity as the Vaishnava Krishna – Baladeva – Paramatma, Akhnaten’s Origin – Manifested – Omnipresent and Pure Land Buddhism’s Tri-Kaya. These are the Three aspects of the One Supreme Godhead at the foundation of all God Centered forms of Religion. Thus this Holy Trinity is found in ancient Judaism, Mediterranean Heliopolitanism and Zorarastrianism among many others.

He also identifies the Holy Cross and the Ankh with the Vedic Yupa Dhwaj or Sacrificial Stake and the Self Sacrifice of Purusha or God

The True Identity of the original Sattvic Dionysus as both Lord Shiva and Lord Balarama, the Common Theme of the Great Flood and God’s Greek Dolphinus or Vedic Matsya Avatar, Amunism, Atenism, Ancient Judaic Religion, Heliopolis as the City of On or Aun – OM, Ancient Mediterranean Vaishnavism centered upon Rhoda-Kouros or Radha Krishna and the ongoing struggle between the doctrines of Voidist – Godless Impersonalism and Fully Personalized Devotional Traditions combined with Paramatma Worship are also discussed.

Who is Rhoda? Who is Zeus? Who is Kouros? Indra, Vishnu, a Demigod or God Himself?

Standard
Kouros

Kouros

Let us compare the degradation of the Primal Revelation in the Medi-Terranean (Middle Earth) Region to that of its degradation in Indian ‘Hinduism’. 

In india today, if I say ‘Indra’ to a ‘Hindu’ how many people will instantly think of Krishna-Vishnu as the Vedic Purusha manifest as Indra? How many will immediately remember Sri Krishna-Vishnu asserting that HE IS Indra in His Bhagavad-Gita? How many will think of the Pure Land Buddhist Doctrine that Avalokiteshvara (Vishnu) may appear as Indra, the King of ‘heaven’. How many will think of Indra as the King (Royal-Post-occupier) of our Material ‘heaven’ or cosmic manifestation? How many will first or only think of Indra as a bolt-throwing deva demigod or storm god? These different ideas of Indra represent stages of the devolution of Vedic-Vaishnava thought/realization, with a lusty fornicating bolt-throwing material storm-god as the last stage, the last remnant of identification with the entire previous tradition.

Notice the winged lighting-bolt (see etching of engraving below) Vajra of Zeus and Indra (and Tantric Buddhism) in this relief of Kouros and His Kouretes. There was an ancient confounding of the Chakra of Helios Kouros (Krishna-Vishnu) and the Vajra Lighting-bolt of Indra, Who is Zeus as FULGAR, the Wielder of the Lighting-bolt. Zeus and Jove (Jupiter, YA-Pitr, Father YAHU) are the Same Supreme Father God as Heru-Wasu-AHMUN in Egypt. The Greek Zeus, and Greco-Roman Theos, Dios and Deus are cognate with both the Sanskrit DEVA and Dyaus. As POLIEUS /PURUSHA Egyptian PER-AUSU, Zeus or Jupiter had hundreds and thousands of Holy Names, which were the Names that He was known by in every little home shrine and great Temple-City-State dedicated to Him in the ancient World. The important thing to understand is that now, the only ‘Zeus’ that commonly comes to mind is that of the late polytheist’s lusty ‘storm god’ lighting-bolt thrower of the late Greco-Roman mythologists and their modern commentators.

Dionysos is Christ and He is Baladeva Deva

Standard
Dionysus on the Cross Tablet.

Dionysus on the Cross Tablet. The tablet at the top of this article depicts the crucifixion of Dionysus, but bares a remarkable resemblance to the crucifixion of Christ. However, this carving is dated long before Christ was born. There are many parallels that have been drawn between the life of Christ and Dionysus, especially of their conception and death. Source: http://christine-b.hubpages.com/hub/Who-Was-Dionysus

Dionysos is Baladeva Deva-Nyasa of the Sam-Nyasins, the Nyasa Anointed (Marked) Initiates of the Rasa Lila Dance Divine Love Tradition of Radha-Krishna, Rhoda-Kouros Helios of Rhodes. His mature bearded Form was the Great Physician known in the Mediterranean Region as the Greek Asclepios (IASAS YAHU-SHUA) Roman Aesculapius, Semitic Eshmun and Egyptian Serapis.

In the East, Among the Vaishnavas, He was known as Baladeva in His Form as Ananta Sesha Naga, the Serpentine Seraphic Form of Asclepios (see Biblical Nahustan), Who revealed the Ayur (Medical) Veda. As Dhanvantari the Anointed One, He arose from the primal Milk Ocean to deliver the Nectar of Immortality to the Godly in His KALASH / CHALICE! Then He performed many miracles in His various Theophanies that have astounding parallels in the Life of Jesus Christ, His Incarnation as a wandering mendicant Healer called Charaka.

An in-depth study of Dionysos shows that He is an alter-Form of Apollo or Helios Kouros. Asclepios as the ‘Son’ of Helios (and Rhoda-Kore) is an INCARNATION of Dionysos (AUSAR / OSIRIS-SERAPIS). BALADEVA the Alter-Form of Krishna-GOPALA Incarnates as CHARAKA the Great Physician and Savior of the World. BAL-THEOS (Osiris) Dionysos the Alter-Form of Helios Kouros APOLLO Incarnates as Asclepios the Great Physician and Savior of the World. 

The Supreme Semitic Deity Eli or El is  Hari (Krishna)  &  Hara (Dionysos-Bal as Shiva).  Yahu is Vasu-deva or Vishnu  (YISHMA-YAHU in Hebrew means Vishnu –Yasu or Vishnu is Yahu,  YESHI-YAHU means Vasu is Yahu, and is related to the Heliopolitan and Theban  Egyptian Deity Names ASU and WASU.)  Again, if we study the ancient Names, doctrines and practices associated with ELI-YAHU, we cannot honestly avoid the conclusion that the Biblical Deity is Krishna-Vishnu / Shiva, the God of Vedic and Puranic Bhakti  Traditions. In the ancient Mediterranean region, there was not the separation between Vaishnavism and Shaivism that we see today, as all Vishnu and Shiva Manifestations were considered forms of BALU-YAHU-DIONYSOS (MESSIAS), BALADEVA, the Salvific Descending Savior of all universes. Yahu, also called BALU is the Emanating and Incarnating Savior of all worlds, the Servitor Lord, the NAMA-RUPA of Godhead for salvific pastimes. He is the Second Person of the Judeo-Catholic Trinity. In the Mediterranean, He is the Source of all  ‘SHIVA’ Forms as well as Vishnu Forms of GOD.  All sacrificial systems and sacramental social orders derive from His primal once-and-all-sufficient Self-sacrifice at the beginning of every cosmic manifestation as YUPA DHVAJA, the virata-rupa Purusha of the Rig Vedic Hymn, the Purusha Sukta.

Caroling, Sacred Hymn Circle-Dancing, Hora Dance, Lakota Sun-Dance & the Lord of the Dance

Standard

Caroling, Sacred Hymn circle-dancing, led by a Choreogos with a Flute, was a practice of the early Catholic Christians. The practice goes back to the Greek worship of Helios Kouros and Rhoda, Krishna and Radha and Their Master of Divine Love Mysteries, Lord Bala-Deva (the Original Dionysos) on Their Sacred Isle of Rhodes. The Jewish Sacred Hora Circle Dance is also related to the Vaishnava Rasa Lila Dance of Radha-Krishna, and Baladeva and His Gopis (Cowherd Girls). The first Catholic Christians accepted Jesus as the Greek IASAS Asclepios, the Egyptian Great Physician Serapis INCARNATE. Thus they understood Him to be Lord Bala-Deva, the true Dionysos, the sole Master and Initiator into the Divine Love Mysteries of Rhoda-Kouros of Rhodes. With the early travels of humanity, one can trace the diffusion of this primal and universal Tradition of Divine Love Mysteries from pre-historic evidence around the World. Please see my facebook Album on the Rasa Lila Dance Tradition World-wide. See the youtube videos that I posted on the related sacred Circle Dance Traditions. All Glories to the Lord of the Dance!  Read the rest of this entry

The Three Lotus Blossoms of Ancient Egypt – Symbolize God as the Past, Present and Future

Standard

The Three Lotus Blossoms represent HERU / HARI as TRI-LOKESHVARA the Lord of the Three Worlds of Yesterday Today and Tomorrow. The Nile Lotus that blooms for only one day is used to depict the idea of the three realms of the Past, Present and Future. A careful study of these 3 blossom Egyptian Lotus Iconographic ideograms shows that one of the Blossoms is spent and the other has not yet opened. The Lotus itself, or ‘water lilly’ is a pictorial pun or HIERO glyph for the Name of God-Ess, Nyphos-Nymphia. Nymph in Greek means both young or virginal as in Helios KOUROS and Rhoda KORE (Krishna and Radha) or the Roman Jupiter JUVENalis and Juno JUVENta, Krishna YUAVANA and Radha YAUVANI. NYMPH also means LOTUS or WATER LILLY. On Their Sacred Isle of Rhodes in the Ancient Mediterranean Sea, Radha and Krishna had many Names and Nymphia and Nymphos were two of them. By this N ‘seed’ Bija Mantram Name, They were the eternal virginal YOUNG / YAUVAN YOUTH and MAIDEN. They were also PADMA (Lotus) and PADMA-PATI. They were HARI and HARINI and Lotus (PADMA, NARAYANI, SRI, LAXMI) and Lotus-Husband, or Lotus-Father (NARAYANA, HARI, Vishnu, Vasudeva).  Please also notice the emblems or symbols of HARPOCRATES in this Icon. These depict His Names and reveal His Theology. They also show what the Religio-Political Alliances were of those who worshiped Him in this Form. Beginning from the base, which is usually a wavey-water line HIEROglyph for the Name-Form of NHL-HAP NARA-NARAYANA as the Vedic APA Deva, the Three Lotuses of the Past, Present and Future sprout. HERU is eternally PRESENT. So, He is especially depicted on the open blossom of TODAY.
