NILUS / NARAYANA / Jupiter Marinus with His Cornucopia, His TYCHE-FORTUNA / LAKSHMI at His Feet and Triptolemus ‘Plow Wielder’ Form etc. (The Farnese Cup) consider that the Sacred River Baptism, Seas and Oceans (Ashayana / Oceanus) ‘Father God’ Traditions of the NHL / NHR / MAR / NARA-NARAYANA Deity are all obviously related in both doctrines and practices. These Baptism related Religious Traditions have countless connections.
I have just watched this documentary “Constantine, Christianity, Mithraism, & Osiris”, and while it does cite some of the same evidence that I use, it is just like a meal laced with poison. There may be some taste and some nourishment in it, but its real purpose and effect will be to make its consumer sick. There is an ‘editorial perspective’ to it that is very obvious from its beginning to end.
This Simcha fellow is just like all of the rest of his ilk. He has no clue what the relationship was between the so-called gods and religions of the ancient Mediterranean Region. He is just parroting all of the other History (etc.) Channel talking heads who completely misunderstand the connections between these ‘gods’ and the groups that worshiped them. He cannot read the scenes on Constantine’s Arch of Triumph, and does not understand what he is looking at. For example, I have saved two important images from the video. These are of Jupiter Marimus as ‘Father Tiber’ the NARAYANA of Rome. Jupiter MARIMUS and Juno MARINA were NARAYANA and NARAYANI as worshiped at ROME. In Egypt the 4 Headed and Armed Form of Helios Phanes appeared on the Primordial Lotus from the prone Form of NHL NILUS / NILE (NARA), MZRYM / NHRYM/N. Without understanding the identity and importance of NILUS / MARIMUS / NHRYM (Hebrew, Bible = NHRYM = NAHARAIM = NARAYANA) this Simcha ‘researcher’ is just another one of the blind leading the blind.
I am so tired of these History (Discovery or National Geographic etc.) Channel talking heads who are simply pseudo-expert New Age panderers exploiting the popular Anti-Catholic sentiments of the historically and religiously mal-educated masses. They all want name, fame and adoration in the New Age ‘spiritual, not religious’ milleau for some sensational anti-Catholic or anti-Christian expose. Does anyone who watches this kind of garbage ever consider the bias of these ‘scholars’ ? This video asks if the image of the leader Maxentius as an evil pagan tyrant was “fabricated”! It is clearly biased against Constantine and the Holy Tradition regarding him that was shared by both the histories of the Eastern and Western Rites of the Apostolic Church.
While attacking Constantine, it makes some broad speculations about Maxentius as a good Ruler who was more favored by the Christians than Constantine. Such supposedly objective ‘researchers’ who are really trying to destroy Catholicism and faith in the Jesus of the Apostles, often attack Constantine as if his influence was all that mattered in the history of the One Holy cCatholic and Apostolic Church! This tactic only works with people who are so badly educated about the history of Christianity, that they are vulnerable to such rot. Consequently in this Age when people in general ARE uneducated or are very badly mal-educated, they are very vulnerable to being mis-led about the important realities of the past.

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
This is a very brief summary of some of the main connections between the ancient civilizations that worshiped the Supreme Lord as Lion-Headed Kalah / Time. To the Indic Vaishnavas He was Krishna-Vishnu as Nara-Hari Kalah. He, Kalah, is the central Wrathful Cosmic Theophany of All-Devouring Time in His Bhagavad-gita Revelation. Shaivites consider Kalah / Time to be a Form of Shiva. Hari (Krishna-Vishnu) or Hara (Siva) is worshiped throughout the Range of Pure Land Mahayana Buddhism as Kalah Bairab, Kalah-Purusha and Kala-Chakra (with His Time Wheel). The ancient Persians worshiped their Supreme Lord as Lion-Headed Time (Zurvan or Aeon). Later the Zoroastrians and Mithras worshipers retained Him as the Father of the gods.
The Greeks called Him Kronus/Time and at first they worshiped Him as the Father of the gods.
The Romans called Him Jupiter-Saturnus and worshiped Him as the Father of the gods. The Greeks’ Kronos, and Romans’ Jupiter-Saturnus was identified with the God of the Jews and
the Lion-Headed Time Form of the Egyptians’ Supreme Deity.
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
This rare representation of Shiva, formerly in the Shri K.C. Aryan collection is known as the Sadashiva in the iconographic texts. Sadashiva images with five heads are few. Sadashiva, Karnataka, India 17th-18th century
The Apostolic cCatholic Jesus Christ has history and theology that is connected to every major Branch of the ancient World’s Radha-Krishna-centric Vaishnavism. This is because the Divine Revelatory Tradition of Jesus is connected to the Brahma Lineage of Global Vaishnavism, just like the Gaudiya Vaishnava Tradition is! Thus if we go back far enough in both the Gaudiya Vaishnava Tradition and the JUDEO-cCatholic Apostolic (Heliopolitan or Afro-Heleno-Semitic Mediterranean) Tradition, we find the very SAME revelatory Tradition!
Actually PURE LAND BUDDHISM and Sattvic Theistic Shaivism and many other ancient global Eastern AND Western Hemisphere Sacred Traditions are also historically and theologically related to our same Revelatory Lineage ‘coming from’ Brahma, Surya and Manu, the Father of Humanity. In these related lineages there are always the parallel Traditions of transmitting the understanding of Divine Revelation, one being Theological or logical and analytical, dealing with everything from philosophy and physics to metaphysics, and the other mode of transmission being the narration of Lila or ‘Pastime’ Stories, in which the Transcendental, Mediating and Immanent Godhead and His Shakti is revealed.
So, there are two ways to understand the Holy Scriptures and Oral traditions of the Vaishnavas. One is as deeply meditated-upon and analysed THEOLOGICAL REVELATION. The other is as emotionally and psychologically experienced LILA. The LILA is the Story, the PLAY. In the Theological Approach we focus on Who the Actor IS. The ACTOR has been revealed as GOD HIMSELF. We understand the profound SELF-REVELATION of GOD, through HIS STORY-TELLING LILAS. HE REVEALS something of HIMSELF in His PASTIMES. What is that SOMETHING? To understand His Self-Revelation we must read, listen-to and reflect-on, meditate-on His Theology as explained to us through the PARAMPARA of His Self-Realized Devotees. We cannot understand the Theology of the Persons of the Godhead without the REALIZED spiritual direction and intellectual formation of the Mahatmas who have actually EXPERIENCED Knowing Him. The Great Souls KNOW THE ACTOR! He has an OMNI-PRESENT OMNISCIENT and OMNIPOTENT existence outside-of the PLAY. Read the rest of this entry

Question: “I can read on your photo that Lord Jesus Christ would have appeared in Bethlehem fulfilling a Vedic prophecy. In what way does this fulfillment of a Vedic prophecy in the case of Jesus has any importance to you? I appreciate Jesus as a charismatic holy personality and for the way he acted and revealed spiritual knowledge to his compatriots as described by some of his disciples and other evangelists in the Bible.”Answer by Bhakti Ananda Goswami: From your comment it appears that you have the same appreciation of Jesus Christ as that of many other ISKCON-related Vaishnavas and Hindus, who in our time have been heavily influenced by the neo-Gnosticism of the Western Esoteric (Occult) Tradition. Possibly convinced by anti-cCatholic sources that the cCatholic Apostolic Tradition from Jesus Christ is invalid, as a result you can only appreciate Him as “…a charismatic holy personality and for the way he acted and revealed spiritual knowledge to his compatriots as described by some of his disciples and other evangelists in the Bible.” People, including Neo-Gnostics, Protestants, Jews, Muslims, Hindus and others, who have been taught to reject the historical reality and theological validity of all of the ancient and Apostolic cCatholic Rites of the 5 Main Sampradayas from Jesus Christ, are only left with the kind of ‘Jesus’ that you appreciate. Such a merely human ‘finite jiva tattva’ ‘Lord Jesus Christ’ can easily be re-presented as just a Vaishnava Missionary to the meat eaters, a Muslim Prophet, a mere Jewish Reformer, a Theravadin Buddhist, a Mayavadi Hindu, a Theosophical Society Ascended Master of the Great White Aryan Brotherhood, a Rudolf Steiner-like or New Age Maitreya, or even a UFO contactee.
But, what has ‘importance’ to me is the actual revelatory history and theology of the GOD Jesus Christ of those 5 ancient and Apostolic cCatholic Mass Rite (Moksha Rtya) Lineages. I want to know why the Apostles of the cCatholic Church thought and taught that THEIR Jesus Christ was the Second Person of the ancient Heliopolitan Trinitarian Godhead of ELI-YAHU-ADON / HERU-AUSU-ATUM / HARI-VASU-ATMAN. Why, if the Jesus Christ of the Apostles was just an ’empowered’ finite soul, did His Disciples leave behind 5 great cCatholic Apostolic Lineages, which ALL taught that He was GOD? The 5 main cCatholic Apostolic Rites of Alexandria, Jerusalem, Antioch, Byzantium and Rome ALL taught the same things, even though they taught these same Apostolic Doctrines and Practices, including their core Sacraments and Mass Rites in different languages and cultural forms! How astonishing is that! Thus from the beginning the cCatholic Apostolic Communion of the GOD JESUS CHRIST mystically embodied His UNIQUELY catholic / universal ‘Unity in Diversity’ as a continuation of all of the previous Heliopolitan Asyla Federations of the ancient World!
