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 Greek Word ‘Krima’ is Cognate with the Sanskrit Word ‘Karma’

Temple of Aesculapius (Balarama), Villa Borghese, Rome

The actual Sanskrit-Greek cognates in the Judeo-cCatholic Scriptures, the Septuagint, Apocrypha and New Testament, are quite revealing . There really is no need for speculation. However confusion arises when people ignore the authentic Judeo-cCatholic Greek Scriptures. By consulting these Greek Jewish and New Testament scriptures, many countless other profoundly important Jewish and Catholic connections to Vaishnavism are revealed.

In the Judeo-cCatholic Greek Scriptures you will find the Greek word ‘Krima’ and related words for God’s judgment, either favorable or unfavorable, used over 200 times. (See krima [karma], krino [karma], katakrima, katakrisis, krisis [crisis, trial test], kriterion [criteria also], krites and kritikos [critic, critical, judging, judgmental]). The English words ‘crime’ and ‘criminal’ are related to the Sanskrit word karma and the Greek word krima. A criminal is a person who has been judged (and sentenced).

In many of these extremely important Judeo-cCatholic Greek Old Testament, Apocrypha and New Testament verses, the word ‘karma’ could be exchanged for ‘krima’ / ‘krino’ etc. with no change in the verse’s traditional Jewish or Catholic meaning at all. However, it seems that the Calvinist and related Protestant misreadings of the neutral judgment word ‘krima’, always in the extreme negative as ‘damnation’, became the basis of the Protestant Bible’s heavy focus on ‘damnation’ and ‘hellfire’.
