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.

Worship of Krishna-Balarama & Paramatma as Tri-Kaya of Mahayana Pure Land Buddhism

Standard

Uddhava hears from Krsna “Krsna in Mathura – “Sri Uddhava said: Thereafter Lord Krsna went to Mathura City with Sri Baladeva, and to please Their parents They dragged Kamsa, the leader of public enemies, down from his throne and killed him, pulling him along the ground with great strength.” (SB 3.3.1)

“Since that time, the city of Mathura had been the capital of all the kings of the Yadu dynasty. The city and district of Mathura are very intimately connected with Krsna, for Lord Krsna lives there eternally.” (SB 10.1.28)”

All expert Mahayana Pure Land Buddhist Art Historians know that the canon of Mahayana Pure Land Buddhist sacred Art derives from and diffused from its two earliest main regional centers in Gandhara and Mathura. The Gandharan Forms were more Greek in style and the Mathuran Forms were more classically Indian and Oriental. In fact the Mathuran Forms are recognizable for a GAUDIYA VAISHNAVA as belonging to the Vrndavan-Mathuran cultus of Krishna-Balarama and Their Shaktis. Since it is known that the ‘Buddhist’ Emperor Asoka’s own ‘Buddhist’ Guru had a monastery IN MATHURA with about 10,000 monks in it, it should be OBVIOUS what kind of ‘Buddhism’ the Emperor was schooled-in and why ALL of Mahayana Pure Land Buddhism throughout its entire geographic range was spreading devotion to the Trinity / Trikaya of Krishna-Balarama and Their Omnipresent Holy Spirit, Paramatma.

Is it concievable that the central Northern Indian Royal Capital of Krishna-Balarama Worship would have an atheistic Theravadin ‘Buddhist’ Monastery with 10,000 monks in it? What does the historical evidence tell us about the presence of this Form of ‘Buddhism’ in Mathura, and why all of Asoka-related Mahayana Pure Land Buddhism is PERMEATED with the Holy Names, Forms, Doctrines and Practices of Krishna-centric Vaishnavism?

Take this one Wiki article for example, regarding the significance of Mathura in early Mahayana Buddhist Art… “…possibly dating back to the occupation of Mathura by the Indo-Greeks during the 2nd century BC.” My own studies have proven that the Rhodian Greek Tradition of Rhoda-Kouros and Dionysos (Radha-Krishna and Baladeva) was the specific connection between the Greco-Indian Gandharan and Mathuran Schools of Vaishnavism and the original Pure Land Tradition of the Vaishnava Brahma Sect / Sampradaya known as ‘Buddhism’. In the Mediterranean Region the Sect of Kouros Helios (Krishna) Worship known in the East as ‘Buddhism’ was the Afro-Helleno-Semitic Tradition of SOKAR-AUSAR-PTAH of Memphis. This was the Cultus of SUKRA-ASHURA-BUDH, Namely the Trinity of BALADEVA (SUKLA) – VISHNU (by His Vedic Name ASHURA) – BUDDHA (His Theophanies and Incarnations as the countless Buddhas and BODHI-sattvas of the Pure Land Tradition).  Read the rest of this entry

Jesus Christ: Vishnu Tattva, Yagna Purusha Yupa Dhvaja

9098_10152166660734828_2079101635_nHERU-AUSU-ATUM the Original Supreme Godhead of the Primal Rhodes-related Heliopolitan Egyptian Bhakti Divine Love Tradition is HARI, God Who IS Love, the Lord of the HRID / HEART.

The Circle Hieroglyph reads ‘R (HR) or ‘L and used to be rendered by modern linguists as HOR, but more recently has been rendered as HERU.

The Second Person of the Primal Deity HERU was AUSU, here depicted as the Uraeus Cobra or Ourobolos Serpent of Infinity that is holding-up Heru. Ananta Sesha Naga as Ausu-Uraeus is draped with His Ankh Cross, which is His Symbol as the Cosmic Purusha PER-AUSU. The cCatholic Apostolic Coptic Egyptian Rite of Saint Mark of Alexandria Egypt retained this same ancient ANKH CROSS OF AUSU / OSIRIS AS ITS SYMBOL OF JESUS CHRIST, the Self-Sacrificed Cosmic Purusha (Egyptian PER-AUSU, Greek POLIEUS).

HERU-AUSU’s Omnipresent Third Person, Their Holy Spirit ATUM (the Indic Tradition PARAM-ATMAN), is depicted as the CORONA / KARANA-MALA Garland of RAY-HANDS (Sanskrit KARA) that extend from HERU-AUSU and Hold His Ankh Crosses. These Ray-Hands also do the creating, maintaining and dismantling work of all Temporary (composite, material) Worlds. Even today countless Vaishnava and Pure Land Buddhist Icons of HARI still depict Him
as surrounded by just such a ‘Garland of Ray-Hands’.

As the KR root Name CREATOR, Hari-Vasu-Atman is called KRITA Creator, KRITA-KRITA Creator of Creators, and KARTRI Creator. He is God / Huta and the Lord of Lords, Guard of Guardians and Ward of Wardens, Varda-vardana. He is the Raja-raja King of kings. Compare ancient Greek REX, Roman REG and Biblical Hebrew ROSH and RAZAN. He is Vasudeva of the vasudevas the Biblical Basileos of the basileos. He is HARI of the Hari-janas / Haryana / Suragana and ELI of the Elohima.

Together the 3 Persons of the Trinity of the Transcendent HERU, the Mediating AUSU and the Immanent ATUM are the Original Supreme Personality of Godhead. They are the HERU-AUSU-ATUM of Heliopolis, the HELI-OSiris-ATOMOS of the Greeks, the HERU-WASU-ATEN of Thebes (in Egypt), the ELI-YAHU-ADON of the Biblical Semites, and the HARI-VASU -ATMAN (Krishna-Baladeva-Paramatma) of the Vaishnavas. To the Pure Land Buddhists These Same Three Persons of the HARI Trinity were the TRI KAYA of Amitabha-Amitayus-Lokeshvara.

+In the Name of the Father, the Son and Their Holy Spirit, and with the help of our Mother Mary-Miriam / Nari-Narayani, Radha / Rhoda Mystica, may our human Family again be united as ONE FAMILY UNDER GOD! + Amun Amen Amin Aum !

[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.

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’! 

Remembering HH Bhakti Tirtha Swami

David/ Bhakti Ananda Goswami visiting with the sweet disciples of HH Bhakti Tirtha Swami, near Washington D.C., USA

Once when I was visiting HH Bhakti Tirtha Swami Maharaj, due to polio-related muscle weakness and heart trouble I was mostly bedridden and could not climb stairs to go to the bathroom. So Swamiji said for me to stay on the couch in the basement, where there was a toilet by the laundry. After midnight the first night, someone came quietly down the stairs and tip-toed to the laundry room with an armload of clothes. I was amazed to see that it was Bhakti Tirtha Swami!

I said, Maharaja, what are you doing? Why are you doing laundry at this hour? He replied “The laundry needs to be done, but the Devotees are tired. I wanted to let them sleep. I have rounds to chant anyway”. He stayed and talked with me a while and then went to chant some rounds. During the time that I was living in the basement, Swami would send Maha Prasadam down to me, and come to visit me late at night, while doing laundry and/or chanting his rounds. Eventually he had the Devotees make popcorn and he and about 20 Devotees would come to the basement in the evening to visit with me and listen to Swami and I discuss Vaishnavism in the Bible and ancient Africa.

As a Child Evangelist, Swami was VERY knowledgeable about the Bible, and he actually still loved Jesus very much, and meditated on Jesus taking the sins of His Devotees, and the whole World. We used to discuss Vasudeva Datta, the Catholic Saints who were Intercessors or ‘Victim Souls’ (Stigmatists) and the Pure Land Buddhist Bodhisattvas. He was very much in that mood of taking the vi-karma or sins of others to guarantee their salvation.  Read the rest of this entry
