US Legal Documentation Confirming Bhakti Ananda Goswami’s Vaishnava Sacerdotal Authority to be used as Proof by US Local, State and Federal Entities in the United States and Elsewhere
HARI, Krishna, is the Sourse of all spiritual and material worlds. Our local Sun Planet is just one of HARI’s infinite manifestations. When our Sun is considered a Form of Hari / God, our Sun is called Surya-Narayana. If we study the 1008 Holy Names of Surya Narayana, we can understand that Surya is a Form of HARI or Narayana, Krishna-Vishnu. However this Solar-Globe Planetary Form of His is NOT His ‘Original’ or ‘Supreme’ Form. Scholars have thus been mistaken in their identification of HARI (Krishna) as part of their imagined Global Class of Supreme Solar Gods. Read the rest of this entry
P.K. “Seems that this “Narayana” is of a rather different character than the Narayana we find in the Indian Vedic tradition. Just a similarity in name does not mean the same person.”
From Bhakti Ananda Goswami: Dear P.K., Thank you for your comment. I have had extensive experience in the field of Pure Land Buddhist studies and practice, comparing the various forms of Pure Land Buddhism, which diffused from India, throughout its entire range. I have been Nama Mantra initiated in three schools of Pure Land Buddhism (Japanese, Chinese and Nepali-Tibetan) and since the late 1960s I have studied the Holy Names, art and artifacts, scriptures, practices, place names, treaties and trade alliances, the general history (of course), and the non-Pure Land Buddhist Traditions that competed with the Pure Land Traditions. This research has included many hours of interviews with experts, both scholars and practitioners, which I interviewed as part of my 1982 Marylhurst College Field Studies Course Contract. For example I interviewed scholars and practitioners at Joshi (Sacred Heart) University in Tokyo Japan, and from universities, temples and monasteries in Taiwan, Vietnam, China, Korea, and in Sri Lanka, India and Nepal.
ALL of these experts were in agreement that the MANY SANSKRIT NAMES and Traditional Forms of the Pure Land Buddhist Trikaya’s Manifestations in the so-called Mahayana Buddhist Pantheon were derived from earlier ‘Hindu’ Traditions in India, and that the essential Pure Land Scriptures and litanies, mantras etc. in Buddhist Sanskrit were primary evidence of this connection. What these Buddhist Experts did not know was anything about Brahma Sampradaya (Lineage) Vaishnavism, and so they were appreciative of the information that I could give them about the specifice kind of ‘Hinduism’ that Pure Land Buddhism is quite obviously historically and theologically so closely related to. Because I am familar with the specific Brahma-Surya centric Vaishnavism of the great Schools of Vrindavan-Mathura and Gandhara, I am able to understand the specific connections of these Vaishnava Traditions to the Pure Land Tradition of Mahayana Buddhism, which originally diffused from these EXACT locations.
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.

This is the Wrathful Leonid-Headed Cosmic Form of HELI / ELI / ALI / HERU / HARI / HARA as KALAH / TIME in His great I AM Theophany in the Bhagavad-Gita. In Egypt He was called HERU-AUSU Amun-Ra and identified with ZEUS CHRONUS (Time) and JUPITER SATURNUS (Time). This is the Murti of Him carved in relief on the top center of the Metternich Stela in this Album. Read the rest of this entry
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.
The Religious Jews or HAREDIM
Confronted with the wrathful Universal Form of Krishna as Nara-Hari Kalah-Purusha (Yahu Tzabaoth Ari-YAHU or Ari-EL, the Lion of Judah), Arjuna’s hair stood on end. Did Arjuna tremble in awe and ecstacy before the LORD HARI / ARI-EL / ARI-YAHU, like the Quakers or HAREDIM (Religious Jews)? HERU / HELI / ELI (HARI, HARA) was the Afro-Heleno-Semitic Supreme ‘Father’ God of the Mixed Multitude and Israelites (Jews), who fled from their chattel slavery in Egypt, during the Exodus described in the Jewish Scripture and the Christian Bible. Did the ancient Jews ever depict their Savior-God of the Exodus as a Lion or a Lion-Headed Man or Sphinx ? YES! Numerous ancient Israelite and Jewish artifacts have been found depicting the Jewish God as a Lion or a Man-Lion! The compound Deity Name ARE-YAHU means LION-YAHU and the compound Deity Name ARI-EL means LION-EL or LION-ELI. So LEONTOCEPHALOS TIME as NARA-HARI KALAH-PURUSHA is the NAMA and RUPA, the NAME-FORM of the Jewish Deity as YAHU-TZABAOTH the Great “I AM” and “Lord of Hosts” of the Exodus Revelation and the Bhagavad-Gita! The RELIGOUS Jewish People today, the ones that still shave their heads, wear the sidelock SIKHAS and keep the Commandments of the Mosaic Law, are called the HEREDIM. The HAREDIM are also called DOSSIM
Why are the Religious Jews, the HAREDIM called (plural) Dossim? Does this practise really come from a derogatory play on the “…Ashkenazi Hebrew pronunciation of the word “datim” – meaning religious.”? Read the rest of this entry
