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.

Corinthia ,south of Athens, Greece painted in the wall of a ruin this picture strongly resembles the Cow tending flute playing Lord Krishna.
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’!
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.
