Buddhism and Christianity
(footnotes omitted)

During his first journey to India, Jesus had lived with Buddhists for six years. According to the Buddhist scrolls at Hemis, “The Buddha had elected him to spread his holy word. ” As such, he had become a perfect expositor of the sacred scriptures. The following information recorded by Meer Izzut-Oolah, the early nineteenth century Islamic traveller, is full of interest:

Every Tibetan makes one of his sons a Lama – the one who has forsaken the world. Both male and female Lamas remain unmarried like priests and nuns, and are the spiritual guides to the people. They do not worship the idols kept in their monasteries, which they declare are merely representations of departed saints. Some of these figures are said to represent a certain prophet, who is living alive in the heavens, which would appear to point to Jesus Christ.

The Tibetans consider their scriptures to be inspired, and contain many moral precepts and exhortations to worship God, to fulfil promises, speak the truth and abandon what is evil. It is commanded that if any man takes away your sheet, you give him your cloak also. Again, if anyone strikes you on one cheek, you tell him to strike the other cheek also. Many of their observations are similar to those of Christians.

Their great feast is held at the time when the sun enters Capricorn, corresponding with Christmas. Another similar custom is to swear in the name of Trinity, which they term as ‘Wunchok Sum’ or ‘Gods Three’. In the infiiction on themselves of heavy penances also, the Buddhist monks resemble the Christian priests. The Tibetans assert that their original scripture was in a language now become unintelligible to them and has been translated to them. I was informed that some portions of the Bible had been revealed to the Tibetans.

I do not know who borrowed from whom. But I am struck by the extraordinary similarity between doctrine, traditions and rituals of Buddhism and the Catholic Church. Even their ranks in monastic orders resemble each other. Both Buddhists and Roman Catholic monks take vows of celibacy, poverty, chastity and obedience. It is amazing that both Buddhists and Catholics make suffrage (intercessory prayers), alms, prayers and offerings on a similar model. This similarity is so striking that one scholar made the observation that “Buddhism is the Christianity of the East and as such is in better conservation than is Christianity, the Buddhism of the West”.

It would be ungrateful on my part if I did not mention that it was the research treatise written by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad which impelled me to take up researches pertaining to Buddhist sources on the life and works of Jesus Christ. In his treatise, the learned scholar has given thought-provoking ideas about similarity between Christianity and Buddhism. He has pointed out that both Jesus and the Buddha were tempted by the Devil. The mode of teaching in parables is the same with both of them. Their titles are similar, their teachings are similar and even some of their parables are the same. Both make the same claim: “I am the Light and the Way”.

In search of Buddhist scrolls

Hippolytus, who was the Bishop of Rome in about 220 AD, mentions a Judaeo-Christian scripture in the land of the Seres in Parthia. During this period, the name Seres denoted a region which produced silk and existed in the north of India. According to their tradition the holy book of Revelation had fallen from the heavens for Elxai, who was the incarnation of God on this earth. His sect believed in successive incarnations of heavenly power. I would guess that somewhere there is a connection between Elxai and his scripture, and the Buddhist lamas, and their information on Jesus.

It is interesting to note that early Christians in the West knew of the Eastern books on Christianity in the beginning of the third century AD.

The Ebionites cherished similar beliefs to those upheld by Buddhists. The Ebionites are the early Judaeo-Christians, who believed in the celestial mission of Jesus, but regarded him as an ordinary man born ofJoseph and Mary. They followed James the just, who was the head of the church at Jerusalem. As such, they denounced Paul and his teachings. They observed the Law of Moses, for which they were declared heretics. Their Gospel, which was earlier known as the Gospel according to the Hebrews, was modified, altered and revised in the form of the Gospel according to Matthew.

They believe in the reincarnation of the coming Christ, like the Buddhist belief in the coming Buddha, which makes clear that we have traces of parallelism in the doctrines of both the communities. For this reason many scholars feel there is an urgent need to make a search of documents and scrolls about Jesus Christ in north India, Tibet and Central Asia. Unfortunately, most of these relics have been stolen by the Western scholars, archaeologists and orientalists. But there may be still some scrolls lying buried underground or in huge collections of works in the Buddhist monasteries of Ladakh, Tibet and Central Asia.

I went to Ladakh a number of times to make a search. It was Nicolas Notovitch who had found the Buddhist scrolls in Ladakh. These scrolls can be divided into three sections; the first dealing with the reincarnation of Jesus, the second with his travels to India and the third deals with his ministry in Palestine. Publication of these scrolls by Notovitch, first in French and then in English, created a row among Christians of his time. Some denied the existence of such scrolls, stating that these were fictitious. But some believed that the scrolls were real and there was a need to find documents about the missing years in the life of Jesus. As the issue touched the very foundations of Christian dogma, the Church accelerated its efforts to dispatch agents into India, Tibet and other countries “to trace, buy, confiscate and steal ancient documents referring inter alia to Jesus’ life in India and death in Kashmir.”

Notovitch had found these Scrolls in 1887 in Hemis gompa in Ladakh. In 1922, Swami Abhedananda succeeded in finding another version, slightly different from that found by Notovitch. He published an account of his journey, along with a portion of the text of the scroll he found at Hemis in his Bengali book Kashmir-o-Tibbate.

The Chief Lama had made a serious allegation to Nicholas Notovitch around 1810 that many Muslims would like to possess these scrolls – which is very significant. But why Muslims should try to get them is not clear. Maybe the Church employed these Muslims agents. I have read about one such attempt made by the Church to depute a neo-Christian Ahmad Shah to Ladakh in 1894, for this very sinister purpose. He wrote a book, Four Years in Tibet, in which he tried “to refute the finding of Nicolas Notovitch.”

Despite my efforts, I could not find these Scrolls. I think that due to their fear of the British, the masters of India up to 1947, the Lamas may have concealed these Scrolls in the underground cells, which they call the “Black Treasure.”

In 1939, Elizabeth Caspari visited Hemis monastery. To her surprise, the Lama showed her some scrolls saying: “These books say your Jesus was here”. She and her companions looked at these parchments in awe.

Shortly before the pilgrims departed, the librarian, carrying
ancient mss approached Mrs Caspari on the roof of the gompa and said;
    “These books say your Jesus was here.” (Summit Univ. Press)                        

.
My search persuaded me that almost all documents about Jesus have found their way into the hands of neo-Christians in Ladakh, or the Church authorities. With much effort and persuasion, I located a Tibetan translation made in 1802 from an ancient Chinese manuscript, The History of Religion and Doctrines – the Glass Mirror. This was an ancient Chinese manuscript translated into Tibetan by Le-zan Chhes-kyi Nima in 1802, called Grugtha Thamschand kyi Khuna dan Dod – Thsul Ston-pe Legs Shad Shel-gyi Melong.

Yesu, the teacher and founder of the religion, who was born miraculously, proclaimed himself the Saviour of the World. He commanded his disciples to observe the ten vows, among which includes prohibition of manslaughter and attainment of eternal joy through good deeds. He preached that evil actions plunge one into hell, where there is eternal torment and misery. A sin committed in a state of consciousness cannot be condoned or pardoned. This is one of the virtuous results emerging out of the teachings of the Buddha. His doctrines did not spread extensively, but survived only in Asia, for a long period. The above information is derived from the Chinese treatises on religions and doctrines.

I found this manuscript in the care of S. S. Gergan, who has a rich collection of Chinese, Tibetan and Ladakhi documents, scrolls and manuscripts. His father, Rev. Gergan, was the first Ladakhi Christian priest, who translated the New Testament into Ladakhi. It is natural that being a Christian, he worked with zeal in his missionary work, and may have obtained many documents relating to the traces of Christianity in Ladakh and Tibet.

We are told by the same author that it was a certain Babaad who performed the burial rites of Yuzu Asaph in the Jewish tradition. Who was this Babaad? It is interesting to find that Babaad, in Arabic, means ‘twins who suck milk from the same mother’. According to Jewish tradition, a corpse had to remain on a shelf until its decomposition, so that the bones could be stored in a wooden or stone chest. I was not able to find any details about this. The only information available was that the dead body of Yuzu Asaph was laid in sepulchre according to the Jewish tradition. A cave-type sepulchre was made by cutting through a huge mound of earth.,

Early Christian relics

It is interesting to note that early Christian relics and tombs have been located in the north-western regions of India. Relics and tombs have also been found in Ladakh, Gilgit, Afghanistan, Baluchistan, Tibet and Central Asia.

In Ladakh, at Tangste, there are big stone boulders on which are carved crosses. An inscription in Aramaic says that Churn, a native of Samarkand, traversed a few hundred marches to reach this site. Further, the name Yusu is also engraved near the crosses found in northern India in archaeological excavations”. These relics demonstrate the existence of Judaeo-Christian settlements in the region in ancient times. But the Church has refuted this claim by saying that the relics pertain to Nestorian Christians of the early fifth century.

However, it is significant that the Aramaic language was not flourishing in the fifth century. These relics and tombs pertain to a very early period of Christianity. When the Archaeological Survey of India located these Judaeo-Christian relics, its Director, a Christian, gave the following explanation:

At Hindan, on the right bank of the river Hab, near Las Bela in Sind, is an extensive cemetery, containing nearly one hundred sepulchres, ornamented with sandstone slabs. Constructed with layers of carved slabs, these sepulchres give the general appearance ofslender pyramids.

A peculiar feature of the ornamented slabs is that some slabs carry crude representations of the Cross. In some slabs, the design shows a human figure with outstretched arms, mounted on an ass with a representation of a crucifix. Some slabs show a knight-in-arms, riding on a horse. Another slab shows a small cross on the face of the horseman. Another un-Islamic feature of these sepulchres is the peculiar form of their burial, which is Syrian as well as Roman.

It is significant that these tombs with crosses and a crucified human being date back to the first century. All the signs carved on them demonstrate that these graves belong to early Christians who may have migrated to or settled in Hindan, Sindh. The report of the Archaeological Survey of India has made an important observation regarding the two kinds of burials, without any explanation. It is mentioned only that the peculiar form of their burial is Syrian as well as Roman, and it is un-Islamic.

It is also significant that many slabs exhibit lotus flowers and inscriptions in Arabic also. This suggests that in later periods these Christians had to change their religion. They may have become Buddhists, as indicated by the lotus flowers. The Arabic inscriptions prove that ultimately, they embraced Islam. It is also significant that these early Christians came from Rome and Syria.

In the valley of Kashmir, I found graves oriented in the eastwest direction, contrary to the Islamic tradition. Also in Kashmir, beside the usual form of graves we do have another form known as Mosai, or ‘to the style of Moses’. In the early days of Islam, the Muslims used to pray facing the Temple of Jerusalem. Later the Prophet ordered that the Muslims were to face the Holy House of God in Mecca in Arabia. The followers of Judaism built their graves in the east-west direction, but later when they became Muslims they changed to the north-south direction.

Among the Christian relics, I was fascinated by a Kushana seal of the first century, preserved in the British Museum, London. It shows a Scythian dignitary on the horse, holding a cross in his hand. It is interesting to note that the designatory is ‘RA’ on the seal, and RA means Raja, the title adopted by the Indo-Scythians. Holding of the cross in the hand implies that the figure is Christian of the first century. His cap and bridle is Central Asian. This demonstrates that during the first century Christianity did exist in Central Asia.

A review of Christian sources

Among early Christian writings, the New Testament Gospels are the primary source of information about Jesus. We are told about his genealogy, birth and migration to Egypt. These events cover four years of his life. There is then a gap of eight years, when, at the age of twelve, Jesus visits the Temple in Jerusalem. After this, his fife becomes an empty mystery for about seventeen years. We are informed that he began a mission at the age of thirty and gathered many followers. At the insistence of Jewish priests, the Roman governor ordered Jesus to be crucified. He was put on the cross by four Roman soldiers but was taken down at the behest of Joseph of Arimathaea. He rose from the dead and lived with his followers for forty days.

The New Testament is not our only source of information about the life of Jesus; however, filling in the story from a number of texts is not easy. For example, the Gnostics’ version of the crucifixion differs in important ways from that in the New Testament Gospels. In the manuscripts found at Nag Hammadi in Egypt, we are informed that:

I did not succumb to them as they had planned. I did not die in reality but in appearance, and it was another who drank the gall and the vinegar. It was another, Simon, who bore the cross on his shoulder. It was another upon whom they placed the crown of thorns. I was laughing at their ignorance.

It is evident that there are many contradictory reports about the life of Jesus, and we would be foolish to consider only a small range of the available sources. We would be unwise, too, to rely heavily on the discrimination of the Church, which clearly has theological and perhaps other rather more dubious interests which may be quite at odds with open-minded historical investigation.

Within 20-25 years after the departure of Jesus Christ, devotees began to collect fragmentary records of his words and deeds. Paul’s epistle falls within this period. Peter’s version of the events in the life of Jesus was probably written slightly later. Matthew recorded the life and teachings ofJesus Christ, originally in the Hebrew dialect, but this original version is no longer available to us, and we have only a slightly later, Greek version of this first Gospel. We can safely presume that the original Gospel according to Matthew was written earlier then 85 AD and maybe even before 70 AD. The Gospel of Mark is commonly dated before 70 AD. Probable dates for compilation of the authorised Gospels have been given as: Mark, 60-70 AD; Matthew, 85 AD (or earlier); Luke, 90-95 AD; and John, 110 AD.

Luke clearly states that his compilation is based on earlier writings. He states:

For as much as many have taken in hand, to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us, even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning, were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word, it seems good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus, that thou mightest know certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.

From the above, two things are clear: that many authors had undertaken to construct the life of Jesus, and that many of them derived information from the narratives of previous authors. Unfortunately, the writings of most of these earlier authors have been destroyed by the Church. Luke may have consulted the Gospel of Mark as well as the Gospels of other Apostles which are not available to us now.

The authorship of the Gospel according to John is under dispute. This Gospel has similar style and teachings to some of the Essene writings from the Dead Sea Scrolls. According to the Essenes, John the Baptist belonged to their Order, and many who were to become disciples ofJesus were first disciples ofJohn. The Gospel of John provides interesting information about the first disciples, the women of Samaria, the healing of Paul, details of the crucifixion, the second coming ofJesus and meeting his disciples, and the final sermon he gave before parting from them. It tells of Joseph of Arimathaea, Nicodemus and others (whom we know from the Essenes to have been members of the Order) being involved in trying to save Jesus from crucifixion.

Even if one takes only the New Testament as a source for the historical Jesus, the task is far from easy.

Texts rejected by the Church

The search for the historical Jesus has resulted in the discovery of many early Christian writings, despite the attempts of the Church to destroy evidence which contradicts its teachings. There are many other Gospels which have been either repudiated by the Church as ‘unauthentic’ (though it is doubtful that any of these decisions were based on historical criteria of authenticity), or they have been rejected outright as ‘heretical’ – such as the Apocryphal Gospels, which contain a great deal of information about Jesus’ life and teachings.

About fifty Apocryphal Gospels have been discovered so far. Most of these works were destroyed under various decrees of the Church, but some copies have survived and seen the fight of day. Tradition has handed down a list of twenty-six Apocryphal Gospels, seven Acts and ten Epistles, all used during the early days of Christianity. Some of these original writings now exist in name only, and of some we have only a few fragments.

Tation, the famous Syriac scholar of Edessa, compiled a volume containing five Gospels in the second century AD, which became known as The Five Gospels of Tation. After thorough research into Greek and Hebrew sources, he compiled his Bible, which remained in vogue for hundreds of years among followers of the Syrian Church. With the coming to power of the Roman Church, the Bible compiled by Tation was ordered to be destroyed. It seems that all copies were collected and burned.

According to Tation, Mary and Jesus did not belong to the line of David. It also appears that Tation had mentioned that after resurrection, Jesus did meet his disciples, and especially his mother Mary, several times, and that he was a living being.

Fifty Apocryphal works discovered so far have been denied official patronage because they do not conform to the revised doctrines formulated by the Church. The most important Apocryphal Gospels of which we have copies still are the following: the Gospel of the Hebrews, the Gospel of the Egyptians, the Gospel of Nicodemus, the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of James, the Gospel of Barnabas, the Gospel of Peter, the Gospel of the Ebionites and the Gospel of Philip.

The Gospel of the Hebrews was originally written in Aramaic and then translated into Greek and Latin. It gives prominence to James, the brother of Jesus. The Gospel of James provides information about the childhood of Jesus. The Gospel of Barnabas was compiled by Joses, a Levite surnamed Barnabas, meaning the son of consolation. Barnabas describes himself as an apostle of Jesus Christ and says that he was directed by the Lord to record the life and works of Jesus. Barnabas worked together with Paul in preaching about the message of Jesus. He was an uncle to Mark and a companion to Paul, who travelled throughout Palestine preaching from his Gospel. As a missionary to Antioch, he accompanied Paul several times but parted from him due to differences. Barnabas was stoned to death by theJews at Slamis in Cyprus.

The Gospel of Barnabas was accepted as a canonical gospel in the churches of Alexandria until 325 AD, when the Nicene Council ordered that all copies of this Gospel be destroyed and anyone in possession of a copy be put to death. The result was that this Gospel was almost lost to posterity. The Gospel of Barnabas was banned in 382 AD by decree of the western churches. However, a manuscript seems to have existed in the private library of Pope Damascus. In the fifth century, a copy, apparently written in Barnabas’ own hand, was found lying on his breast in a tomb in Cyprus. This manuscript found its way into the Library of Pope Sixtus V (1500-1590). It is believed that the manuscript was obtained from the private library of the Pope by an Italian priest, Fra Marino, and made accessible to the public by him.

The Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel of Philip are known as the Coptic Gospels because they are in Coptic and were discovered at Al-Hammadi in Egypt. They throw a great deal of light on the hidden life ofJesus. It is evident from these Gospels that the early Christians did not believe that Jesus died on the cross. They believed that he arose and remained in hiding with his disciples, eventually dying in a natural way.

The Acts of Thomas, or Acta Thomae, written by Leucius in the beginning of the second century AD, is based on letters written by Thomas from India, and was translated into German by Max Donet and published in Leipzig in 1883. The Gospel according to Thomas, dated about the third century, was discovered in 1947 from Luxor in Egypt. It was translated from Greek into Russian in the 13th century.

It was Thomas who introduced Christianity to the south of India around 52 AD. He built many churches but suffered martyrdom in 72 AD and was buried at Mylapore, where the San Thorne Cathedral Basilica stands at present. The Syrian Christians of Malabar, India, claim that Thomas was their founder. There is some evidence that Thomas may too have been an Essene.

This Gospel was proscribed by the Roman Catholic Church, probably because it denies the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. It was denounced as heretical by a Decree of Gelasius in 495 AD. The Gospel, among other things, provides information about a meeting between Jesus and Thomas at Taxila, long after the crucifixion.

It seems that most of these ‘heretical’ gospels were unacceptable to the church because in one way or another they portrayed Jesus as a human being. For instance, the Gospel ofJames informs us about the marriage of Mary with Joseph. In the Gospel of the Ebionites, Jesus is believed to have been born in a normal way, as a son ofJoseph and Mary. Similarly, another Gospel says:

My brother, I wish to tell you about a most wonderful thing; sometimes when I wanted to touch him, I could feel a solid material body, but at other occasions, his being was immaterial as if it had not existed at all.

The reasons for the banning of the Gospel of Philip are obvious, for it informs us that Jesus migrated towards the East with his mother and with Mary Magdalene, who appears in this Gospel as Jesus’ consort.

The Church, in various councils and decrees, accepted and rejected the different Gospels, the net result of such suppression being that we are now deprived of much useful and authentic source material on the earthly life ofJesus. What is needed is that the New Testament be rearranged, with all available Gospels, Acts and Epistles included in it. Otherwise, this censorship will lead to disillusion amongst followers of the Church..

The Dead Sea Scrolls

In 1947, a number of manuscripts were discovered in a cave at Wadi Qumran, near the Dead Sea. In 1949, fragments of the Old Testament were recovered from the same cave. In 1952, a considerable number of fragments and coins were discovered in the caves of Wadi Murabbaat. These manuscripts, popularly known as the Dead Sea Scrolls, are the compilations of Essenes, whose community, Khirbet Qumran, was destroyed by the Romans in around 70 AD.

The Scrolls were written before the birth of Jesus. The First Enoch was written around 170-164 BC, and the Testament of the Twelve Patriarchs was compiled around 109-107 BC. During Jesus’ lifetime all these scrolls, including the Psalms of Solomon, the Testament of God and the Book of Jubilees were available for study. In fact, the Sermon on the Mount, now included in the New Testament, was known to Jesus, for he had already read it!

Kali Yuga — The Age of Conflict

As we scan the landscape across the entire planet, we see the scars and ravages of CONFLICT. Kali Yuga (aka the Iron Age) is the current age of humankind. Kali Yuga is known as the Age of Conflict. An age when strife and discord and dissension predominate across the land. Kali Yuga is also known as the Age of Quarrel.

Therefore, it should come as no surprise to anyone that the past five to six millennia of world history are defined by war. Naked wars of aggression, unending battles for scarce natural resources, civil wars, skirmishes around land disputes, inner city drug battlegrounds, etc. etc, etc.

Who among us has not been touched by war?

Who among us has not known someone who has been deeply scarred (physically, mentally or emotionally) by the ravages of war?

Is there even a single square inch on this planet that has not been raped, plundered and pillaged?

A Special Report On the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe

The Fukushima Five

Just prior to the Supermoon of March 18th, 2011, the world witnessed both a natural and a manmade disaster of epic proportions. What transpired off the coast of Honshu Island, Japan on March 11 has forever altered the planet and irremediably affected the global environment. Whereas the earthquake and tsunami proved to be truly apocalyptic events for the people of Japan, the ongoing nuclear disaster at Fukushima is proving to be cataclysmic for the entire world.

Most of the world community is still unaware of the extremely profound and far-reaching effects that the Fukushima nuclear disaster has had. If the nations of the world really understood the implications of the actual ‘fallout’ – past, current and future – the current nuclear energy paradigm would be systematically shut down. For those of us who are in the know, it is incumbent upon each of us to disseminate the relevant information/data necessary to forever close down the nuclear power industry around the globe.

There is now general agreement that the state of the art of nuclear power generation is such that it was deeply flawed and fundamentally dangerous from the very beginning. This fact was completely understood to be the case by the industry insiders and original financiers of every nuclear power plant ever built. Nuclear engineers had a very good understanding of just how vulnerable the design, engineering and architecture was at the startup of this industry. Nevertheless, they proceeded with this ill-fated enterprise at the behest of who?

An Open Letter to the People of Japan

The Fukushima Five

Dear People of Japan,

As is often the case, we (the People of Japan as well as those who shaped your destiny) must look back into history to fully understand the developments surrounding the current nuclear crisis which has so paralyzed your country in the wake of the March 11thearthquake and tsunami.  We are compelled to first look directly into the events leading up to the dropping of the atomic bombs by the US Military on both Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of WWII.  When these two unprecedented and horrific events are put into proper perspective, the truth about your unfolding state of Nuclear Armageddon will become transparent.

From Hiroshima to Fukushima

First, here are some facts which are conveniently omitted when our side retells the history of one of the most heinous crimes perpetrated in world history.  These two aforementioned war crimes were committed against strictly civilian populations during the final phase of the Asian theatre of WWII, when it had already been determined that the conflict was decisively won by the Allies.  Quite a shocking statement, isn’t it?!  However, an objective and honest assessment of all the information available conclusively shows that this crime of genocide was totally unnecessary on any grounds whatsoever.  Truly, these atomic bombings constituted deliberate acts of state-sponsored terrorism wrought on a nation-state to traumatize it and subdue it into complete submission.

So, why did the USA et al. do it?  Is there any doubt that the twin engines of economic growth after WWII could be found in the nations dealt the heaviest blow by that war?  Clearly, Germany and Japan were transformed into the economic powerhouses of both the European and Asian realms respectively.  This occurred only after each nation was ruthlessly savaged by acts of war which were as apocalyptic as they were unparalleled.  Whether we consider the fire-bombing of Tokyo, the carpet-bombing of Dresden and obliteration of Berlin, or the atomic bombing of two civilian centers in Japan, we are left only with the stark and brutal reality that these events were pre-planned with precision and designed to produce a specific outcome.  

Global Control Matrix Revealed

Who really runs the world? Part II

Isn’t it amazing that in 2012 the Illuminati, the New World Order, the Rothschilds have literally become household words?! Virtually any website that is not considered mainstream media (MSM) may have at least one reference to one of these mysterious entities which comprise the Global Control Matrix.

Truly, the internet has encouraged the widespread and rapid dissemination of what was once considered either secret or highly privileged information. Even the US Federal Government is now known to be completely subservient to and under the command of an international crime syndicate and ultra-secret cabal which functions as a Shadow Government.

Let’s revisit Law #7 from Part I of this series:

Law #7
At its very core, life on planet Earth is nothing more than a test. The Global Control Matrix, which is directed by those at the peak of worldly power, assists in maintaining a system of planetary control whereby no one can ever get away with anything. This highly controlled system has its own rules and regulations, some of which seem to be totally unreasonable, irrational, and downright crazy. Others seem purposefully destructive, divisive and self-defeating. Still others appear to be completely unjust, discriminatory and unfair.   

Who really runs the world?

14

at the end of Kali Yuga?

Before we can answer that question, it’s important to first establish the “ground rules of the age” that have existed since time immemorial on Planet Earth.

For those uninitiated into this realm of inquiry, consider this a baptism by fire. For those who have seriously considered this weighty matter, we ask that you suspend all that you think you know … just for this short read. If you do, you might be very surprised, yet satisfied, with the conclusion of this essay.

The Laws of the Land

These laws are applicable during the current era of humanity known as the Kali Yuga (Age of Conflict) or Iron Age. They are not only the product of observations by many astute observers over millennia, but also the distillation of many a profound contemplation. Deep reflection on this question, which has bedeviled so many inhabitants of this earth plane, has produced the following laws of the land.  

Global Population Explosion Marks the End of the Kali Yuga

Global Population Explosion Signifies the End of the Modern Era

The Iron Age, also known as the Kali Yuga, is acknowledged by the ancients to be darkest and most dense of the four major ages. In descending and chronological order these include the Golden Age which is followed by the Silver Age, which in turn is followed by the Bronze Age. Because the Iron Age is the last and final age of the four great epochs of time within each major cycle, it is only natural that it would eventually degenerate into a state of affairs not too unlike what we see in 2012, and shaping up for 2013 and beyond.

The very nature of the Iron Age is such that it will always contain the seeds of its own destruction. A proper understanding of the Mayan Long Count calendar reveals when and how and where these seeds will sprout and grow into a vine of planetary disintegration. In fact, an accurate interpretation of the Mayan Long Count calendar has produced an astonishingly accurate representation of the final decades of the Iron Age.

Picture a thousand dots on a radar screen which have been placed by the Universe itself. Imagine the challenge that is presented to connect those dots into a cohesive whole. And then to create such a revealing mosaic complete with color and shape, texture and relief, which accurately portrays the actual unfolding 3D story of Planet Earth as it is ushered with great speed through the eye of the needle known as December 21, 2012.

If one were to fast forward to 2012 from 1900, one would quickly see that the number of dots on the radar screen has increased exponentially over that century. We will only address one of the three largest dots (•) listed below, which speaks directly to how we got to where we are today as a planetary civilization.
• Global Population Explosion
• Technospheric Breakdown
• Earth Changes

The Radar Screen for 2012 and beyond is jam-packed with all kinds of colorful surprises.

Without question, the global population explosion is the reddest flag in the whole firmament, waving vigorously in the face of all of humankind. Clearly, a global population in excess of 7 billion ought to indicate that the time is nigh for the long-prophesied transition from the current Kali Yuga to the New Age. This has become particularly evident as the population explosion has revealed so many inherent defects and pervasive deficiencies that are found within so many planetary paradigms. The fatally flawed energy paradigms, which are necessary to support such a large number of human beings, are especially laid bare by recent failures with worldwide impact.

Earthquake, Tsunami and Nuclear Meltdown Converge to Create Global Perfect Storm

“Does anyone in their right mind believe that nuclear power plants can ever be designed, engineered or constructed to withstand 9.0 earthquakes followed by 15 meter high tsunamis? Sorry if we offend, but such a display of so deadly a combination of ignorance and arrogance must represent the very height of hubris. Particularly in view of the inevitable consequences which have manifested at Fukushima, how is it that so few saw this pre-ordained and disastrous outcome, except by willful blindness?”
Japan: A Nation Consigned To Nuclear Armageddon

How did it ever come to this?! In a nation that suffered the greatest Nuclear Holocaust in modern history. How did the world community ever allow 55 nuclear reactors to be built in the most seismically active region of the planet?! Why?

TEPCO photo showing tangled wreckage inside the fuel pool at Fukushima after earthquake

No other industry more poignantly represents what can go horribly wrong — for the entire planet — like the Nuclear Power Industry. The industry paradigm is so fatally flawed, and has such profound and fundamental safety vulnerabilities, that it should never have proceeded in the first place.

2012 has already seen swarms of major earthquakes rarely seen in a single year. The Indian Ocean, Mexico and Japan have all experienced a dramatic uptick in major seismic events. Two of the recent Sumatra earthquakes topped 8.0 on the Richter Scale at 8.6 and 8.2 respectively. Mexico has likewise had it’s share of recent earthquakes, all clustered in the same general region and followed by aftershocks of unusual strength. As for Japan, the earthquake capital of the world, it never really let’s up but the frequency is consistently as high as ever.

As for tornado swarms, the USA ducks and takes SERIOUS cover every time a new front moves across the plains and other midwestern states. Everyone is beginning to wonder which town, village or hamlet will be obliterated by the next huge swarm of tornadic super cells plowing through the grasslands. We have come to learn these past few years that tornados love to travel in packs just like jackals. They come and go with lightning speed devouring everything in their path.

The Large Hadron Collider and the Statue at CERN

“When scientific knowledge and applied technology reach a critical level of advancement, without being informed by spiritual truths and guided by moral authority, the planetary civilization will relinquish its destiny to continue as it is.”

Can there be a coincidence that the statue at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) is none other than Shiva Nataraja – the dancing Shiva, also known as the primordial destructive force of the universe? CERN is the international organization whose primary function is the oversight of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) which is located on the French/Swiss border. In this regard it has assumed oversight responsibility for the most advanced and sophisticated experimental laboratory in particle, theoretical and nuclear physics currently being conducted (not in total secrecy) throughout the world.

Is there reason to be conCERNed about the technology that is being employed at the LHC? Is there good reason to believe that the technology, and the underlying science, as well as the particle accelerator itself, are not up to the task at hand? What we are suggesting is that these physicists are playing with fire that they do not have the capacity to understand given the inherent limitations of their mindsets. More specifically, the very scientific paradigms upon which they have based their technology, especially the collider/accelerator, are totally inadequate to carry out such experimentation in a responsible manner. In other words these guys are trying to play in the major leagues with sticks and stones.

For those not steeped in Eastern spirituality, Lord Shiva is one of the three primary deities of the Hindu trinity and is known wherever his image is worshiped as the destroyer and transformer. What does the dancing Shiva (Nataraj) have to do with the Large Hadron Collider? Let’s have a closer look.

“Nataraja or Nataraj: … The Lord (or King) of Dance is a depiction of the Hindu god Shiva as the cosmic dancer who performs his divine dance to destroy a weary universe and make preparations for god Brahma to start the process of creation. Nataraja is most often depicted through a statue. The dance of Shiva in Tillai, the traditional name for Chidambaram, forms the motif for all the depictions of Shiva as Nataraja. He is also known as “Sabesan” which splits as “Sabayil aadum eesan” in Tamil which means “The Lord who dances on the dais”. The form is present in most Shiva temples in South India, and is the main deity in the famous temple at Chidambaram.[1]
The sculpture is usually made in bronze, with Shiva dancing in an aureole of flames, lifting his left leg (and in rare cases, the right leg) and balancing over a demon or dwarf (Apasmara) who symbolizes ignorance. It is a well known sculptural symbol in India and popularly used as a symbol of Indian culture.”[1]
