Who is the first born of all creation? Christ? or the Sun God?

Saint Paul always upsets me when he said this in his letters,
Colossians 1:15 He(Christ) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-- all things have been created through Him and for Him.…
I was upset because in the Rig Veda it says it is the Sun God, Hiranyagarbha which is the first-born of all creation. 
Rig Veda (10.121) 1 In the beginning rose Hiranyagarbha, born Only Lord of all created beings.He fixed and holdeth up this earth and heaven. What God shall we adore with our oblation? (Translated by Griffith)
So how can there be two deities at the beginning of creation and each one claiming to be the first-born over all creation? Now any non-believer will say that this is not surprising at all as Saint Paul took a lot of his themes from the pagan mystery religions. To me, that's like undermining Christianity even before addressing the real problem and such a view should not be tolerated and encouraged at all because these morons are ignorant of one aspect of Saint Paul that he had a genuine apostolic Christian tradition behind him named Valentinianism who claimed to have had authentic esoteric interpretation of Pauline Letters and a continuity of genuine apostolic tradition. As Einar Thomassen says Valentinians were the great Paulinists and we will not let anyone criticize our most revered Saint so easily and get away just like that.

Isn't it a irony that the person whom the orthodox Church quotes to fight against the Gnostics and the Gnostic ideas is in fact the person whom the Gnostics claim to be their sole initiator into the mysteries of gnosis. Both atheists and orthodox Christians have underestimated Saint Paul and the gnosis of the Valentinian Christians and they are going to pay for it big time.

So who is the first born of all creation? Christ? or the Sun God? The reasonable explanation will be that unity appeared as Christ to Christians and at the same time the same unity appeared as Sun God to Vedic Aryans. Well this is a typical pagan attitude isn't it showing tolerance and pluralism towards religions of other nations and their deities. Yes for I am a pagan first and then a Christian. Also I know what its like to have gnostic visionary experiences and it is absolutely arrogant and foolish to assume that only we had genuine experiences and think that the divine revealed itself only to us and not to the people of other nations especially when both of our visions are explaining the same reality word to word having differences only in our linguistic description of the divine. 

2nd century Gnostic Christians shouldn't be indebted to Greeks, Neoplatonists, the Persians or the Aryans because the knowledge of the divine is no one's intellectual property and I hope Plotinus and anyone who thinks like that understands it clearly. Any philosopher who expects credit in the matters of the divine and shouts at others for proselytizing his teaching is not a true philosopher and he doesn't really know anything about the divine. If the Vedic rishis had copyrighted all their teachings then every Greek, Egyptian and Persian philosopher and theologian would have nothing to boast about.

Nicholas Kazanas, the Vedic scholar's research on Advaita and Gnosticism



Nicholas Kazanas runs an institute named Omilos Meleton and here he has published his paper on Advaita and Gnosticism.

A study on the possible connection between the ancient Indian philosophical system Advaita (an aspect of Vedanta) and certain ideas that circulated in the first two centuries of the Christian Era in the Easter Mediterranean and particularly in Egypt. Also, an attempt to trace great philosophical ideas e.g. The Unity of Being, The identity of Man's self with the Godhead, etc in Hermetic texts, Vedanta, Christianity, Gnostic writings, Judaism, Greek Thought and Egyptian culture.  
Published in VVRI Research Bulletin (Hoshiarpur) vol 2 (43-112), 2003.

Well disappointingly, even he could not find any reasonable explanation for the startling similarities found between Advaita and Gnosticism. It is this kind of unsolved mystery which compels me to dig deep through the rabbit hole and I am not approaching the problem from a historical perspective but from an esoteric perspective.

Sir Roger Penrose influenced me to investigate the pagan mystery religions.


                                      


This is no mystery, our Vedic rishis who worshipped the pagan Sun God, Savitr very well knew how all the three worlds, the physical, the mental and the objective mathematical world interacted with one another to produce the empirical reality that we see around us. Brain doesn't create the mind actually it is the mind (Manas) which creates the brain. The empirical world of science is not the real physical world instead it is just a state of mind. Intelligence which we call as Buddhi exist in the platonic realm and we access those eternal mathematical truths when the Sun God stimulates the intellect and the mind with his divine rays. The empirical world is just a copy of the real Pleroma of God that exists out there independent of us.

The credit of this discovery should go to the Vedic Aryans and it is they who discovered this esoteric secret. This is how we view our universe, this is our model of the universe and we have the power to destroy the secular world and the arrogance of atheistic scientists.

Nārada Muni continued: What I referred to as the chariot was in actuality the body. The senses are the horses that pull that chariot. As time passes, year after year, these horses run without obstruction, but in fact they make no progress. Pious and impious activities are the two wheels of the chariot. The three modes of material nature are the chariot’s flags. The five types of life air constitute the living entity’s bondage, and the mind is considered to be the rope. Intelligence is the chariot driver. The heart is the sitting place in the chariot, and the dualities of life, such as pleasure and pain, are the knotting place. The seven elements are the coverings of the chariot, and the working senses are the five external processes. The eleven senses are the soldiers. Being engrossed in sense enjoyment, the living entity, seated on the chariot, hankers after fulfillment of his false desires and runs after sense enjoyment life after life.




This is the truth what you scientists must learn from eastern oriental mysticism. This view challenges the biblical religion, the scientific community and the atheistic community and your so called secular world will be destroyed very soon. All evidence is pointing to a hypercosmic Sun God. 

What I don't like about orthodox Christians is that how they completely ignore the history of the world and the religions of other pagan nations and assume that anything which is outside from the Bible is from the devil and it is New Age, to me this is the height of foolishness and millions of innocent people are brainwashed to believe just that and orthodox Christians tell me how do you think you are going to evangelize the whole world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ if this is the attitude you show towards pagan nations and religions.

I am sorry to say this the world would be a much better place if Mithraism or Valentinian Christianity had won out over orthodox Christianity but the orthodox Church with its psychic mindset and its arrogant bishops persistently persecuted both of them and burnt their teachings. How would Christians feel if we had turned back and did the same thing to them that is bring down every church on the street and raise the statue of Mithras in place of it? However that would be very silly and we are not interested in such things because one doesn't receive redemption by just visiting a church or visiting the cave of Mithras.

Its quite obvious that why so many of the scientists are atheists because they would have read the silly beliefs of orthodox religions and would have read their foolish interpretation which is enough to make a man's heart to turn away from God and call him an imaginary being.  Its no wonder why orthodox Christianity produces so many of those extreme atheists.  What does orthodox Christianity which persecuted every innocent Valentinian Christian on earth gave to the world? Yes it produced atheists like these which it should be very proud of.
a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.
        - Richard Dawkins on the Hebrew God 

This is the reason why I as a Valentinian Christian reject both orthodox Christianity and atheism which is a deep mess which the western world has created upon themselves where the neither party is right about the truth. Its a irony that Valentinus, a 2nd century gnostic Christian is showing the light to scientists, philosophers, orthodox Christians, atheists, pagans and Hindus of the 21st century world. No wonder why he is called truly the gnostic for all seasons whose teachings doesn't make your heart torpid but fills your heart with joy and rest.

Valentinian Christianity backed up by Shukla Yajurveda tradition of the Vedic Aryans having scientific support from contemporary physics can bring the secular world down. If this is very disturbing to you then you better know as to where do we stand on the world scene.

History of Life, an educational software by Jaguar Educational

I was one of those nerds who saved my pocket money to buy books, encyclopedias and educational CD's instead of wasting it on other things. Every time I had enough money in my money saver I used to go to Sapna Book stores to buy a book or an educational CD or an encyclopedia.

I was in my high school when I bought the History of Life educational software from the makers of the History of the Universe and it completely changed my thinking style.


History of Life is a wonderful interactive software for high school students consisting of a recorded background voice who takes you through different sections of the software and makes learning evolution fun and enjoyable with humor at the right time.

It really made me enjoy the life sciences and sparked an interest in it very early in my career. I think this is how we have to teach science to students rather than enforcing them with loads of theories where in which students just try to read and memorize them for the sake of passing the exams instead of developing individual critical thinking.


The History of Life, educational software from Jaguar Educational


Some of the interesting biologists and thinkers and their ideas explained in the software are.


1. Steven Pinker




2. Noam Chomsky


3. Richard Dawkins (The Selfish Gene theory)




4. John Maynard Smith (The guy who applied game theory to evolutionary biology)




5. Stephan J Gould


6. James Lovelock (The Gaia hypothesis)





The sooner students learn evolution the sooner they begin to acknowledge that evolution by natural selection is a fact rather than being a die hard creationist. I though have come a long way in my research and it is this individual thinking which has helped me to reach where I am now.

What half-witted American practitioners and marketers need to know about Yoga.

What is Yoga?
       
                            संयोगो योग इत्युक्तो जीवात्मपरमात्मनोः॥
                           saṁyogo yoga ityukto jīvātma-paramātmanoḥ॥
             Union of the self (jivātma) with the Divine (paramātma) is said to be yoga.
                                  —Yoga Yajnavalkya

This is the most ancient definition of Yoga according to the Vedas. Jivatma means the individual soul and Paramatma means the Sun God Surya (Sun Salutations remember!). So the practice of trying to union the individual soul with God is Yoga. See how I use the same Sun Salutations (How to worship the Sun God) which you guys call as stretching to obtain my redemption which is very much different from the redemption of orthodox Christianity.

Yoga in later Hinduism
I instructed this imperishable science of yoga to the sun-god, Vivasvan, and Vivasvan instructed it to Manu, the father of mankind, and Manu in turn instructed it to Iksvaku. The supreme science was thus received through the chain of disciplic succession, and the saintly kings understood it in that way. But in course of time the succession was broken, and therefore the science as it is appears to be lost.” 
- Bhagavad Gita 4.1 & 4.2
 Who has the Authority to practise Yoga? 
“Arjuna, one who practises yogabhyasa following yama and niyama is a superior atma to those who are tapasvi, gnani and those who practise nitya naimitya kaamya karma etc. Hence you should follow the yama and niyama and conquer your mind and become a yogi.” 
Thus advised Sri Krishna paramatma, extolling the virtues of yogabhyasa, and from this it is clear that yoga gives very superior benefits. Everyone has a right to do yoga. Everyone — brahmin, kshatriya, vaishya, sudra, gnani, strong, women, men, young, the old and very old, the sick, the weak, boys, girls, etcetera, all are entitled to yogabhyasa with no restrictions on age or caste. This is because yogabhyasa rapidly gives maximum visible benefits to all. It does not stop anybody from acquiring the visible results of practice, whatever their capabilities. Everyone is entitled, irrespective of caste, to follow the path of yogabhyasa even in order to obtain divine virtues and the resulting eight animadi siddhis, and, if one ignores these siddhis, to proceed further on the ultimate path. But many do not agree with this opinion. This only reveals their confusion and the absence of a sattvic state of mind. (The sastras do not forbid yoga for anyone.) Whoever wishes to do yoga has the right to do it. Yet whoever it is, it is very important that they should only learn all the aspects and practise it under the guidance of a proper guru. One encounters obstacles and problems if yoga is practised without a guru. 
But “Ruffians, those who eat wrong food, talk filth or use abusive language, those who speak ill of others, lie about others, are obsessed with food, those who are addicted to sensual pleasures, those who pretend to be good, those who destroy and cheat, carry aversion in the mind, those who are disrespectful of the vedas, are alcoholics, or have any such bad habits, these people, no matter what caste or religion, are not fit to practise yoga.” This is firmly stated by Gherandacarya. 
The reason for this is that although these people are capable of practising yoga, these practitioners with their cunning could cause problems and injuries to others in spite of the yogabhyasa being “pure”. There have been many examples to substantiate this in the puranas and in our experience. For example, everybody knows that pure cow’s milk gives good health and happiness. Yet if it is poured in a cup made of pig’s skin or dog’s skin, it turns into poison and becomes harmful. Similarly if you teach the pure divine nectar of yoga to ruffians and cheats, it will only cause disaster. Like a king who entrusts his kingdom to a no-good useless son who destroys it instead of protecting it, a guru with good intentions may teach yoga to cheats and the latter will not know how to use it properly and will cause only destruction to the world. 
Those who are eager to learn good skills, those who can learn to control their senses and are peaceful by nature, those who speak the truth, who wish to serve their guru, who are devoted to their mother and father, who do karma according to the sastra, who are clean, who love bathing in the Ganga, who follow their caste dharma, who are modest and patriotic, who have pride in their family, all these people are good vessels for yoga. If the guru, following the correct path and method, advises such people and makes them practise in front of him, they will quickly become adept. The readers should remember this very well. You will not become a skilled yogi just by putting on the costume and faking it. Whatever occupation you are engaged in, you have to be very serious and strict and dedicated and at least follow the proper standards and restraints. Those who do not fall under the previous categories do not have the right to practise yoga.

Its quiet clear that American Yoga practitioners don't respect the Vedas at all and hence they do not have the authority to practice Yoga. Neither they lead an ascetic life as it is required in the Yoga guidelines nor do they lead a spiritual life. If you want to practice Yoga you have to respect the Vedas and the Vedic deities in them otherwise you have got no authority to practice it. Yoga belongs to no one it belongs to the Sun God and if you don't even give a prayer of thanks to him that just speaks your hearts. I know as Christians you cannot pray the pagan Sun God then please acknowledge that it is pagan ritual and go to a gym instead, but please don't make me do this, don't make me mock at you guys for all the stupid things you do in the name of yoga which is a very sensitive religious practice for us.

As a follower of King Helios I have to do sun salutations in the morning as well as in the evening but I have left doing it for quite a few years because I know the kind of purity of mind and heart it takes to do such a ritual and its not something which should be taken lightly. Its a irony that what one country calls it stretching and falls into New Age nonsense, devil worship, witchcraft and other stuff instead of gaining good wisdom an another country reveres the same stretching exercise as the most auspicious and sacred redemption ritual ever.

I warn both Indian and Western marketers to not sell yoga like a brand product, I know you all practice yoga to make up for your crappy lives rather than to gain wisdom and gnosis so go to a gym instead, yoga is not the answer for your crappy lives, it is meant for something more than this world.

Don't test our patience we will no longer tolerate it anymore.
