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.

Question: “If Krishna and Amitabha are one and the same then we have two names of God . But who is Dharmakara who, according to mahayana scriptures, once lived as a man(just like Krishna) who became a Buddha . Did God descendent on earth then as Dharmakara who has to reach enlightment, or mayby the story of Dharmakara is not important at all and is mayby not correct.”
Answer from Bhakti Ananda Goswami: I am concerned with World History and Theology, Metaphysics and Philosophy, the Sacred Arts and Sciences and the Revelation, Name and Form of Godhead and Shakti. If one carefully studies what I have written about these Subjects, one should come to understand that the ORIGINAL KRISHNA / KOUROS NEVER CHANGES HIS ORIGINAL FORM and NEVER ‘LEAVES’ GO-LOKA VRINDAVAN. Thus, ALL OF SRI KRISHNA’s VARIEGATED FORMS FOR PASTIMES / LILAS are through, with, in and by Sri Krishna’s Second Person, LORD BALADEVA! In the earliest evidence of HARI-VASUdeva-ATMAN (Krishna-Baladeva-Paramatman) worship, These Three irreducible Forms or KAS / KAYAS / BODIES / PERSONS of the Triune Godhead may be confounded with One-Another. Thus in Pure Land Buddhism the Three Persons of the TRI-KAYA may be telescoped-into Eachother, or their distinct Theological Attributes may be merged. The Persons and Attributes of the Tri-Kaya’s Feminine (Receiving) Shaktis may even be confused and/or merged into the Purusha Persons of the Tri Kaya. So, over thousands of years and miles, and hundreds of cultures and languages, Pure Land Buddhism has flourished leaving a legacy of countless variations in its regional and local Lila Stories, Doctrines and Practices.

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
