About Me

My photo

I am a mystic madman, a wandering wildman, scholar of esoterica, dilettante sadhu, dready-headed hippie (only have a few jata on the back of my head right now, though more be forming of this third set of knotted hair), gentle yogi, fierce foe of falsity. I was a preacher, but I renounced that. I was married, but she renounced me. I was a grad student at one of the top universities in the world on my way to becoming a professor, but I realized they taught lies there too. I am protector of souls, lover of mountains, smoker of herb, fond of hot springs, oceans and lakes and rivers and rain and sunshine, devotee of Devi.

Hindu Gods and Goddesses

Glimpse of the Great Drama of these past few thousand years with a view to unraveling the relationships of the three most prominent "Western" religions and their relationship to what has become known as "hinduism" though is more properly known as sanAtana dharma . . .

So as I have amply noted elsewhere (see "Hidden Origins of the West" and "Maybe Columbus Found India After All: Traces of India Amongst American 'Indians'"), the Hindu Trimurti is from whence cometh the three most prominent so called “Western” religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam (as well as most world religions in fact).  Abraham is clearly somehow a derivative of Brahma or Brahmin or some such closely related Sanskrit appellation or group designation.  It has recently occurred to me that the “A” at the beginning of the name of the patriarch of the three aforementioned might have significance ("A" as prefix in Sanskrit as often in English means "not-"), specifically that somehow the fellow was portraying an experiment in being “not-“ Brahma/Brahman/Brahmin . . .
As it is the contention of sanAtana dharma generally that with a view enlightened all is truly Atman/Brahman—i.e., that all that is not illusory is in truth Deva-Devi (God/Goddess), perhaps the three “Abrahamic” religions are an expression of pretending “as if . . .” said contention of Yoga is not valid, as Buddhism contends unabashedly by professing Abrahman (not unrelated to the Buddhist contentions regarding anatta or anatman).  Thus Judaism, Christianity and Islam are attempts to construct “what would God be if God is not what we (practitioners of sanAtana dharma which is root religion to nigh all major religions in the world from ancient European/Asian/American Indian/African, in other words at some point what nigh all our ancestors believed ) thought . . . “  And as it turns out those three religions all end up mirroring/expressing as eminational  expression the religion said movement/migration to the west thought was left behind.  The contention of each of the three are thus rather like children endeavoring to define themselves as separate from parents, and discovering their likenesses or at the least using the terms and concepts of the parent religion and culture.
