From False Gods To The True God- Elohim
Part 1: ORGIN Of Hinduism
2 Corinthians 4:3-4
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they will not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
Blinded= tuphloó= clouded vision, physically or mentally, darken the mind

Story of 2 Ladies
2 Peter 1:16-21
16 For we did not follow cleverly devised tales when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we wereeyewitnesses of His majesty. 17 For when He received honor and glory from God the Father, such a declaration as this was made to Him by theMajestic Glory: “This is My beloved Son with whom I am well pleased”— 18 and we ourselves heard this declaration made from heavenwhen we were with Him on the holy mountain.
19 And so we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. 20 But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture becomes a matter of someone’s own interpretation, 21 for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
Tales/Fable= muthos= myths, tales, fanciful story. a false account, yet posing to be the truth; a fabrication which subverts (replaces) what is actually true

The Incarnate Word
1 What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life— 2 and the life was revealed, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was revealed to us— 3 what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ. 4 These things we write, so that our joy may be made complete.
God Is Light
5 This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; 7 but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.
Darkness= skotia= moral, spiritual darkness
Light= phós= the manifestation of God’s self-existent life; divine illumination to reveal and impart life, through Christ.
Ying & Yang Dualism Good & Evil Agesold Lie
Now the serpent was more cunning than any animal of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God really said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?”
The woman said to the serpent, “From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat;
but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’”
The serpent said to the woman, “You certainly will not die!
For God knows that on the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will become like God, knowing good and evil.”
God hates a mixture
2 Corinthians 11:14
No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
Disguises= metaschématizó= : I change the outward appearance (the dress, the form of presentment) of something, transfigure; I adapt
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, this person is a new creation; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
There’s no such thing as a Dalit Christian only Christian or Christians from a certain nation ie Christians in Israel, England, India, America, Pakistan or cities & regions.
Dalit= Dalita= oppressed people or broken people= known in the caste system as the untouchables= excluded from the Varna =colour/status in the system of Hinduism= Varna= Caste system= Brahmin, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas & Shudras.
The Dalit was the outsider, low caste, untouchable, dark-skinned Drividuan. The Panchama= fifth= dark-skinned people of the Indus Valley= also known as Harijans, scavengers as M Gandhi called them, Balmikis, Bangi or the modern term “Scheduled Caste. Broken, split, scattered people= deemed untouchable by The 4 Vedas, Bhagvat Gita, Ramayan Etc…. Hindu literature. Hinduism was first mentioned by Cyrus the Great in 600BC. It comes from the area known as the Sindhu river. Persians didn’t use the letter “S” Originates from the Persian Avesta, with their pantheon false gods, Avestas & the demons devas. In Hinduism this was reversed, the deva’s became gods & the Avestas became demons. Dalit is Hinduism and nonbiblical Christianity. Christ Jesus Set The Dalit Free from the evil religion of Hinduism as he has done for all other sinners from every ism! So they are Christian not Dalit Christians
1: Taj Mahal?= View= House of Love or Blood?
Sword Of The Prophet: Serge Trifkovic
2: Mahatma Gandhi? Father of the Nation? Mahatma= great soul?
Nelson Mandela= nonviolent resistance inspired anticolonial and antiracist movements; ?
Favourite book= Bagavat Gita
1893-1914 South Africa: Racist Gandhi
South Africa= Gandhi was Racist= Supported The British Empire
Called Black South Africans “Kafiri or cafri”= ethnic slur, it’s a derogatory slur as “negro” Unbelievers of the Colonial Reign
High caste Indians were superior to the native Black Africans. He repeatedly expressed this to the British rulers. South African’s he said are “savages”
Gandhi on upper Separate entrances:
One of the first battles Gandhi fought after coming to South Africa was over the separate entrances for whites and blacks at the Durban post office.Gandhi objected that Indians were “classed with the natives of South Africa,” who he called the kaffirs, and demanded a separate entrance for Indians
Gandhi on Indo Ayrans
In an open letter to the Natal Parliament in 1893, Gandhi wrote:
“I venture to point out that both the English and the Indians spring from a common stock, called the Indo-Aryan. … A general belief seems to prevailin the Colony that the Indians are little better, if at all, than savages or the Natives of Africa. Even the children are taught to believe in that manner,with the result that the Indian is being dragged down to the position of a raw Kaffir= Negro
Gandhi wrote in 1903: “We believe also that the white race in South Africa should be the predominating race.”
Gandhi on Caste System
Regarding the “Law of Varna”, The Law Of Caste/Colour)
Gandhi saw it as an essential part of Hindu religion based on pre-determination of profession and respect for ancestors. For Gandhi, the caste systemwas not a human invention but a “natural law” and that those who did not respect nor followed the caste system, as by choosing professions that were “outside” of their casts, were doing damage and violence to themselves. Karma will destroy them!
Gandhi stated “varnadharma” teaching of caste, colour, status,order is the supreme eternal law; to break it one is risking their lives
A scavenger (low caste, Dalit, balmiki, untouchables) may remain scavengers without being or feeling degraded and they will be no more considered untouchables than Brahmins. The fault does not, therefore, lie in recognizing the law of heredity and transmission of qualities from generation togeneration, but it lies with the faulty conception of inequality. (13 August 1925; Gandhi.
In the Gautama Dharma (Vedic) it writes if a low caste listens intentionally to the Vedas, their ears must be filled with molten tin or wax
Gandhi loved to call the Bhangis, Chuhras, Dalits, scavengers. They were renamed Balmikis in 1910 by Lala Bhalla. 1946 Gandhi refused to eat with the Balmikis, Dalits gave him nuts and he fed them to the goats.
A Conversation with an American Evangelist John Mott:1936
Speaking about converting the Harijans( The Untouchables to Christianity)
Your appalling the Christian message to those who have no intelligence to understand what you talk about Gandhi said.
John Mott replied “should they not preach the gospel with reference to acceptance?” Gandhi replied “Would you Mr Mott, preach the gospel to a cow?
Well some of the untouchables are worse than cows in understanding.
Gandhi on RSS=
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh= National Volunteer Organisation Founder: Dr K.B. Hedgewar: 1925
Gandhi said that he had visited the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh camp in Wardha, when the founder Shri Hedgewar was alive. The late ShriJamnalal Bajaj had taken him to the camp and he (Gandhi) had been very well impressed by their discipline, complete absence of untouchability and rigorous simplicity
B S Moonje one of the early ideologies of RSS traveled to Italy in 1931 and Mussolini He was inspired by European Fascism
Fascism arose in Europe after World War I when many people yearned for national unity and strong leadership.
By the time the Second World War broke out, Hitler & Mussolini were the RSS’s spiritual & political leaders. They remain!
1939 M.S.Golwalker who succeeded Hedgewar as head of the RSS wrote:
“To keep up the purity of its race & culture, Germany shocked the world by purging the country of the Semitic races— theJews. Race pride at its highest has been manifested here… a good lesson for us in Hinduism to learn & profit by”
Modern day RSS Member:
Former Prime Minister Atul Bihari Vajpayee, Former Home Minister L.K.Advani and four time Chief Minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi the current PM.
At the age of 70, he would sleep with two young girls, Manu, his 17 grand niece and Abha. He did to overcome his sexual desires
He would sometimes sleep with 3-4 women Naked!
At his Tolstoy farm in South Africa he slept with young boys and girls around him. One of the boys made fun of 2 vulnerable girls.
Instead of dealing with the issues morally, he pondered how the girls like Sita could be less attractive. He made them cut their hair!
In his Ashrams experiments were aimed at testing his vows of celibacy by putting himself in predatory closeness with women of all ages. Thisincluded sleeping, bathing, and receiving massages from them while they were naked.
Mahatma? Or Monster that protected Hinduism= Modern Priests of fire= Yogis/Teachers of today

Cyrus The Great in Persia= Koroush= Like The Sun=
Chronicles 2: 36
Ezra Chapters: 1, 3, 4, 5 & 6
Daniel Chapters: 1, 6 & 10
Cyrus The Great coined the word Hindu (Persian)from the river called Sindhu (Sanskrit) in 600 BC.
He did this to describe the people living beyond the Indus River (Sindhu in Sanskrit) the eastern boundary of the Persian Empire.
The Persians had a problem with the letter “S” so they used the letter “H”
Caste System= Head, Torso, Legs & Feet= Body of Brahma
1: Romans called fire “Athar”
Ancient Persians called priests “Arthvanl” Old Sanskrit called lightning “Atharvan”
Arthvan evolved into Brahmin = First fire priest
2: Persian Warriors were called “*Rateshwars*”
This word evolved into “*kshatriyas*”
3: Persian herders of cattle, traders, workers, were called “*Vastrayosh*” This evolved to “*Vaishya*”
4: Persians followers/strangers/travellers were called “*Hatoksha*” This evolved to “*Shudra*”
5: Untouchable = First coined by Maharaja Sayaji Rao III in 1909. In Sanskrit “Panchama” = 5th Varna
Also known as “*Adi-Dravidas*”= Original Dravidian’s. The original people of the Indus Valley= South Indian people.
*Caste*= Varna= Colour
Caste in Persian means colour, status, order*; so because the Dravidians were darker skinned than the rest of the 4 casts, they were untouchable; Dark skinned humans.
the Brahmins, the Kshatriyas, the Vaishyas and the Shudras Untouchables= Scavengers=Dalits= Balmki= SC
Various stories of caste:
Prajapati= Lord of creatures created the caste
Manu= created the caste MIXED CASTES
A reader of the Manu Smriti (Hearings) will find that Manu for the purposes of his discussion groups the various castes under certain specific headsnamely (1) Aryan Castes, (2) Non-Aryan Castes, (3) Wandering Castes: Apostate,
(4) Fallen Castes and (5) mixed Castes.
Brahman= created the caste

Apostle Thomas Proclaimed This In India Kerala 52AD
Died 72AD Mylapore near Madras
Therefore, since we are the descendants of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by human skill and thought.
So having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now proclaiming to mankind that *all people* everywhere are to *repent*,
because He has set a day on which He will *judge* the world in righteousness through a *Man* whom He has
*appointed*, having furnished proof to all people by *raising Him from the dead*.” Ignorance=agnoia=blindness, wilful blindness,moral blindness, spiritual blindness
Tower Of Babel/All Gods/ Tower of the Gods Genesis 11:4-9
4 And they said, “Come, let’s build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let’s make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of all the earth.” 5 Now the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the men had built. 6 And theLord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they have started to do, and now nothing which they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, so that they will not understand one another’sspeech.” 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth; and they stopped building the city. 9 Therefore it was namedBabel because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.
1: Trying to outwit God
2: Mans way to reach heaven
3: Doorway to Heaven
4: Nimrod, Mighty Warrior/ founder of Babylon
Nimrod was a mighty hunter — In the Septuagint it is, He was a giant hunter: — the Arabic has it, He was a terrible giant before the Lord: and the Syriac, He was a great warrior
5:Different languages, same gods 6: Gods=
Gods of Egypt
The Egyptians drew on a source of power that was not of God, but false gods
For I will go through the land of Egypt on that night, and fatally strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the human firstborn to animals; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments—I am the LORD.
gods= elohim=divine being, goddess, great, judges, rulers, shrines Lord= Yhvh= God of Israel
God declares that he will execute judgments “on all the gods of Egypt”. This is reinforced when the author of Numbers declares that “The Lord hadbrought judgments on their gods” in Numbers 33:4, heavily implying that Egypt had its own gods, and that God defeated them.
Gods of Egypt= Gods of the world=Repackaged Unpacking Hinduism & Sikhism
monotheists= Greek= Mono= One God= singular
polytheists= belief in many gods
pantheists= belief that god is identical with nature as a whole. The universe is one with god
Trinity= Oneness= Unity
Dharma= teaching, laws, rituals
Brahman= Universal soul, Good & Bad, all creation, not separate from creation.
One of the goals of meditation is to achieve identification with Brahman, and abandon the ignorance that arises from the identification with the illusional nature of the common world.
Reincarnation/Cycle of Births/circle of Samsara/karmic cycle/moving in a circuit Wandering= animal, human, depends on your Karma,
Atman= soul or spirit= self/breath. Part of Brahman
Maya= Sanskrit for “illusion
Moksha= liberation/release from suffering and rebirths. Moksha is the liberation from this never-ending cycle of reincarnation, a way to escape thisrepetition. Moksha in a sense, means to be reabsorbed into Brahman, into the great World Soul. Drop in the ocean.
Karma= Karman Act= Acts= fulling once caste, not to go out of your caste,
Practice yoga, mantras, charms,duties of Hinduism, venerate the gods that protect Hinduism. Universal law of reincarnation, Brahmin worship. You pastwill determine your future. Your actions determine your next life.
Example in the Bagavat Gita:
Karna in the Mahabharata story was the half brother of The 5 main characters “Pandavas” His father was the Sun god
Yet his earthly father was a chariot maker= low caste So to Krishna tells Arjun to kill his brother when?
When Karna is fixing his broken chariot on the battle field. Why? Because Arjun was a Kasuhtirya (Warrior)caste
Karna was a low caste. So he had no right to fight as a high caste.
So Demon Krishna waited until he came of his Chariot and thus fulfilled his caste by fixing the chariot. That’s when Arjun killed him; sojustifying the killing by honouring the Dharma of Hinduism & Karma “Read The Story of the Farm Girl”
Man is One with God= Brahman & Atma are one/Same Substance/
Namaste= It recognizes the belief that the life force, the divinity, the Self, or the God in me is the same in all
33/330 Million Gods= all Brahman Veda= Knowledge, insight,scared writing Origin of the written word:
The Vedic religion was the religion of some of the Vedic Indo-Aryan tribes, the aryas, ( Ayran) who migrated into the Indus River valley region of the Indian subcontinent. The Indo-Aryans were speakers of a branch of the Indo- European language family. Drividans the indigenous people of the IndusValley. Dark skinned.
Prime god= Indra= Thunder & RainArea= Indus Valley= north India Vedas= Sanskrit= Knowledge
They were carefully preserved orally as masters would have students memorize them Also known as Shruti= what was heard
The Vedas are a Collection of Hymns, Rituals, Chants, Prayers
The hymns formed a liturgical body that in part grew up around the soma ritual and sacrifice and were recited or chanted during rituals.
Soma= drink= Soma, in ancient India, an unidentified plant, who’s juice was presented to the gods.
After it was offered as a libation to the gods, the remainder of the soma was consumed by the priests and the sacrificer.
It was highly valued for its exhilarating, probably hallucinogenic, effect. The personified deity Soma was the “master of plants,” the healer of disease, and the bestower of riches
The Vedas praise a wide pantheon of gods, some of whom personified natural and cosmic phenomena, such as fire (Agni), the Sun (Surya and Savitri), dawn (Ushas, a goddess), storms (the Rudras), and rain (Indra), while others represented abstract qualities such as friendship (Mitra), moral authority(Varuna), kingship (Indra), and speech (Vach, a goddess).
Aranyakas = belonging to the Forest= rituals, observances
Brahmanas = Sayings= commentaries on said rituals, Hymns, mantras, repetitive prays
Samhitas= put together, joined= benedictions, prayers, mantras
Upanishads= eternal path/ order of Brahmins/ secret teaching/ sitting down with the teacher and learning= philosophical narratives and dialogues
Promotes the caste system
SIMILARITIES BETWEEN EARLY Iranian/PERSIAN RELIGION & EARLY HINDUISM SUGGEST A COMMON BELIEF SYSTEM, WHICH THEN DEVELOPED SEPARATELY
Other scared Books:
These came way after the Vedas:
Different Gods from the original in the Vedas
Mahabharata= The Mahabharata is an ancient Indian epic where the main story revolves around two branches of a family – the Pandavas andKauravas – who, in the Kurukshetra War, battle for the throne of Hastinapura. Interwoven into this narrative are several smaller stories about people dead or living, and philosophical discourses. Krishna= himself a character in the epic, composed it; as, according to tradition, he dictated the versesand Ganesha wrote them down. At 100,000 verses, it is the longest epic poem ever written, generally thought to have been composed in the 4th century BC.
Promotes the caste system
The Bhagavad Gita (“Song of God” or “Song of the Lord”) is among the most important religious texts of Hinduism and easily the best known. It hasbeen quoted by writers, poets, scientists, theologians, and philosophers – among others – for centuries and is often the introductory text to Hinduism for a Western audience.
It is commonly referred to as the Gita and was originally part of the great Indian epic Mahabharata. Its date of composition, therefore, is closelyassociated with that of the epic – c. 5th-3rd century BCE – but not all scholars agree that the work was originally included in the Mahabharata text andso date it later to c. 2nd century BCE. Mahatma Gandhi favourite book. His statues are seen holding the book.
Promotes the caste system
Ramayana = The Ramayana is an ancient Indian epic, composed some time in the 5th century BCE, about the exile and then return of Rama, prince of Ayodhya.
It was composed in Sanskrit by the sage Valmiki, who taught it to Rama’s sons, the twins Lava and Kush. At about 24000 verses, it is a rather long poem. Rama, Sita, Laxman, Ravana, Hunuman etc…..
Promotes the caste system
There are four Vedas: dates unknown but common view:
Dated Between= 1500-600BC
Word= Sanskrit= Indo-European Language
The earliest is:
1028 hymns= about gods
the Rigveda,= From Agni= Fire god, second to Indra= Thunder god, third god is surya= all male= where rain, fire or thunder occurs, they occur.
Agni, the god of fire is married both to the goddess Svaha and the male Moon god Soma Bisexual relationships. Soma is also known as Chandra= shining or the moon
Agni supposedly also has an affair with shiva, giving birth to Skanda= god of war
the Yajurveda,= From Vayu= associated with the Iranian/Persian wind god= war god= deity of breath= spiritual father of Hunuman= monkeygod= Rama= had sexual intercourse with women, kunti and producing strong man Beema
the Samaveda= From Surya= The Sun god=
Father to many Demi gods= Manu (began the human race), Yama (god of the dead), the Ashvins (twin physicians to the gods), Karna (a great warrior in the Mahabharata), and Sugriva (king of the monkeys in the Ramayana
Late addition to the first 3:
6000 plus mantras & Hymns
the Atharvaveda= knowledge of every day life.
The text is the fourth Veda, but has been a late addition to the Vedic scriptures of Hinduism. The Brahmin priest state the Vedas are Sanatan= eternally pre-existing
Brahmin priest are the priest of the fire= priest of Agni
Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might reach out with his hand, and takefruit also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever” therefore the LORD God sent him out of the Garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken
Soma the drink of gods
Soma the fermented juice drink which was consumed by the Hindu gods and their ancient priests, the brahmans during rituals. Thought to prolong life, change metal to golf, its consumption not only healed illness but also brought great riches. Made the gods immortal
The Ayrans gods drank Hoama= soma
Drink of Immortality Plant god
Lotus leaf? Brahma?
Magic drink of gods
Elixir= Amrit= Soma= nectar= Ambrosiaa magical or medicinal potion
The elixir of life, according to mythology, if consumed will bring its bearer the promise of immortal life. The substance or potion and its origins can betraced back to many different ancient cultures. Some of the first stories of the elixir of life’s powers are found in Egyptian and Greek mythology. TheEgyptian god Thoth and the Greek god Thermes were said to have both consumed a magical elixir made from liquid gold and thus achieved immortality
The Veda= Practices of the Aryans/Persians
Reg Veda on Soma
- Oh ! God Vayu, how very beautiful you We have prepared the Somarasa (an intoxicating drink) with spices. Pray come and drink it and grant us our prayers—Rig. Ved
- Oh! God Bring ye wealth for our protection. Let the wealth that you bring make us happy be increasing and everlasting and help us to kill our enemies—
Gods have wife’s
3: Oh ! ye Agni, please bring the wives of the Gods and Twashta who are eager to come and drink Soma 4: We pray that the Gods’ wives come to us with all available wings and with all happiness
5: I am praying the wives of Indra, Varuna and Agni to come to my place to drink Soma.
6: Oh! Varuna, Sky god, we are supplicating before you to remove your anger. Oh ! ye Asura, you are all wise, relieve us from our sins
Wife’s prepare for Indra
7: Our Somarasa has been prepared by women who have churned it backward and forward. Oh ! ye Indra we pray you to come and drink this Soma
- Your enemies who do not make any offering to you may disappear and let your followers who do Oh ! Indra give us best cows and best horses and make us famous in the world.
Gods love Soma
- Oh! Agni save us from Rakshasas, from cunning enemies, from those who hate us and want to kill us
- Oh ! Indra, you are a Come and drink the Soma we have prepared and be ready to give us wealth. Loot the wealth of those who do not make you any offering and give the same to us
- Oh! Indra, drink this Soma which is the best, giving immortality and most intoxicating
The confusion of the Vedas:
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, and forever.
Forever/ages= aión= eternity, forever & ever, from the beginning, continues to be the same Changing always/ with time/ to please the then rulers/ copied other nations
With the Vedas we have eleven different explanations regarding the origin of the Vedas—(1) as originating from the mystical sacrifice of Purusha, (2) asresting on Skambha, (3) as cut or scraped off from him, as being his hair and his mouth, (4) as springing from Indra, (5) as produced from Time, (6) asproduced from Agni, Vayu and Surya, (7) as springing from Prajapati, and the Waters, (8) as being the breath of Brahma, (9) as being dug by the Gods out of mind-ocean, (10) as being the hair of Prajapati’s beard and (11) as being the offspring of Vach.
The writers who have come forward to furnish these views are all Brahmins.
Another creation story:
The rise and fall of Bramha, Vishnu and Shiva has already been told in a previous chapter called Gods at War. Whatever happened, the struggle for place and power was confined to these three Gods. They were not dragged below any other. But a time came when they were placed below the Deviby name Shri. How this happened is told in the Devi Bhagwat1. The Devi Bhagwat says that a Devi by name Shri created the whole world and that it is this Goddess who created Bramha, Vishnu and Shiva ! The Devi Bhagwat goes on to state that the Devi desired to rub her palms. The rubbing ofpalms produced a blister. Out of this blister was born Bramha. When Bramha was born the Devi asked him to marry her. Bramha refused saying she washis mother. The Devi got angry and burned Bramha alive by her wrath and Bramha was reduced to ashes then and there. Devi rubbed her palms asecond time and had a second blister. Out of this second blister a second son was born. This was Vishnu. The Devi asked Vishnu to marry her. Vishnudeclined saying that she was his mother. Devi got angry and burned down Vishnu to ashes. Devi rubbed her palms a third time and had a third blister.Out of this third blister was born a third son. He was Shiva. The Devi asked Shiva to marry her. Shiva replied : ‘I will, provided you assume anotherbody’. Devi agreed. Just then Shiva’s eyes fell on the two piles of ashes. Devi replied ‘they are the ashes of his two brothers and that she burnt them because they refused to marry her.’ On this Shiva said, ‘How can I alone marry ? You create two other women so that we all three can marry’. The devi did as she was told and the three Gods were married to the Devi and her female creations. There are two points in the story. One is that even in doingevil Shiva did not wish to appear more sinning than Bramha and Vishnu for fear that he may appear more degraded than his other two competitors. The more important point however is that Bramha, Vishnu and Shiva had fallen in rank and had become the creatures of the Devi= Goddess
When the Vedic Brahmins say that the Vedas are Apaurusheya= not of human= what they mean is that they were not made by man. Not being made by man, they are free from the failings, faults and frailties to which every man is subject and are therefore infallible
They then say:
God has no body and no palate and therefore he could not utter the Vedas.
Who are the Vedas really promoting:
The Brahmins as lords and access to the gods!
Brihaspati, (Sanskrit: “Lord of Sacred Speech”) in Vedic mythology, the preceptor of the gods, the master of sacred wisdom, charms, hymns, and rites, and the sage counselor of Indra in his war against the titans, or asuras.
Counsellor of the devas= gods
This gods view:
“There is no heaven, no final liberation, nor any soul in another world; Nor do the actions of the four castes, orders etc., produce any real effect. Thethree main Vedas, teaching one to cover themselves with ashes of the dead.
If the Sraddha (praying for the dead) produces gratification to beings who are dead= why are they still lost?
If beings in heaven are gratified by our offering the Sraddha here, then why not give the food down below to those who are standing on the housetop ? Why do these beings need us to exist?
When once the body becomes ashes, how can it ever return again?
Hence it is only a means of livelihood that Brahmans have established here/ to control. Charms, mantras, hymns, foods offered to overcome death. Paths to gods.
All these ceremonies are for the dead, there is no other fruit anywhere. The three authors of the Vedas were buffoons,demons and dishonest or unscrupulous men
These were invented by buffoons, and so all the various kinds of presents to the priests. The Brahmin is the main character
Gotama=Siddhartha Gautama= India = Nepal= 500-400 BC= Before Christ
BCE= Before Common Area Prince of Nepal
Saw suffering and death Founder of Buddhism
Samsara= cycle of rebirths= Rebirths occur in six realms of existence, namely three good realms (heavenly, demi- god, human) and three evil realms (animal, ghosts, hellish). Samsara ends if a person attains nirvana
Gotama on the Vedas:
The Veda has no authority, since it has the defects of falsehood, self- contradiction, and different conclusions. The Veda, has no authority. Why? Because it has the defects of falsehood etc.”

The Vedas toppled:
The Brahmins fought to maintain the thesis that the Vedas were not only sacred but that they were infallible.

Old Gods Toppled:
Asuras and Devas
In Ancient Persia; Ahura meant good diety and Daeva meant false gods. In India (amongst Hindus) asura means evil, while deva means god.
The Devas wanted the Amrita (drink of immortality) from the Ahuras.
Indra, Agni, Surya, Rudra, Varuna,
The Brahmanic literature gives us no clue whatsoever as to why the Brahmins abandoned the worship of Agni, Indra, Surya, Varuna & brahma. There issome explanation as to why the cult of Brahma disappeared. It rests in a charge which is found to be levelled in the Brahmanic literature against Brahma. The charge is that he committed rape on his own daughter and hereby made himself unworthy of worship and devotion. Whatever be thetruth in the charge it could not be regarded as sufficient to account for the abandonment of Brahma and for two reasons. In the first place, in that agesuch conduct was not unusual. In the second place, Krishna was guilty of greater immoralities than were charged to Brahma and yet they continued to worship.
3 stages of Hinduism
Creation, Preserved & DestructionTrimurti
New Gods cult. Opposed to The Vedas3 Gods= Brahma, Vishnu & Shiva
When, one studies the literature which depicts the deeds of these three gods one finds a complete difference between the theory and the practice ofunity. The Gods far from being friends appear to be worse enemies of one another, competing for supremacy and sovereignty among themselves
Brahma= Creator= Lotus Leaf= From the navel of Vishnu. 4 heads. Wife is Saraswati= Shakti Wanted sex with his daughter Vach.
The significance of the lotus in Egyptian mythology is huge. For it was from the lotus flower that their sun-god, the centre of their entire mythos. The story goes: … When the self-created sun god had emerged from the lotus, he created the gods Shu and Tefnut, who swam away into the waters of Nun
The Blue Lotus of the Nile was the most sacred of plants, prized above all others. The plant was associated with the
sun god Ra as the bringer of light.

Srimad Bhagavatam 4.2.12-15 that, “He has eyes like a monkey’s, yet he has married my daughter, whose eyes are just like those of a deer cub.Nevertheless he did not stand up to receive me, nor did he think it fit to welcome me with sweet words. Shiva lives in filthy places like crematoriums, and his companions are the ghosts and demons.
Naked like a madman, sometimes laughing and sometimes crying, he (shiva) smears crematorium ashes all over his body. He (shiva) does notbath regularly, and he ornaments his body with a garland of skulls and bones” Tr.
Matsya Purana 154.329-341 , ”Hearing those words the sages controlling their mind and realizing her object said:- ” Daughter! There are two kinds ofcomforts in the world and the first one is the gratification of the body; the second is the peace of mind. Lord Siva is, by nature naked, ferocious, Dweller of the cremation ground, the carrier of skulls, a hermit, statue like in action, a begger, mad, fond of collecting ugly and terrible things, and inauspiciousness incarnate. What advantage will you get in having him as your husband…” Tr. Taluqdar of Oudh,
Edited by B.D. Basu
‘When Siva failed to be satisfied by making love to Gauri, his wife, he then went naked into the Pine forest in the guise ofmadman, his linga erect, his mind full of desire, wishing to obtain sexual pleasures with the wives of the sages.’-
Destroyer= shachath= angel of death
From the Nile-Death/Destroyer. Only The Blood Of The Lamb Saves
For the LORD will pass through to strike the Egyptians; but when He sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the LORD will passover the door and will not allow the destroyer to come in to your houses to strike you.
1 Corinthians 10:10
Nor grumble, as some of them did, and were killed by the destroyer.
He leveled a path for His anger; He did not spare their souls from death, But turned their lives over to the plague, And struck all the firstborn in Egypt, The first and best of their vigor in the tents of Ham.
Different Destroyer Revelation 9:10-11
They have tails like scorpions, and stings; and in their tails is their power to hurt people for five months.
They have as king over them, the angel of the abyss; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in the Greek he has the name Apollyon.
Abbadon= Abaddon, Destroyer (i.e. Destroying Angel) or place of destruction (personified)
Apollyon= “a destroyer”, Apollyon, the angel of the abyss

Wars to be top
All 3 fight for supremacy. Who’s the first born. The chief god. Brahma was battered by Shiva. Vishnu & Shiva fight all the time
Another Change= goddess the in-thing
The Brahmins then in latter writings venerated the goddess above the gods of war.
Kali saved them against the king of the giants, the gods of war had no power to tackle the king of the giants.
Hinduism is Vedic Iranian/Aryan religion
It’s an amalgamation of myths from all their conquers. Babylon, Persia, Greece etc……
Human sacrifice Animal sacrifice Penis worship
Priest wife’s would request horses penis Sepas (penis) & Yoni(woman’s privates) Horse sacrifice
Gamble their wife’s away
The morals of the Ancient Aryans were no better than their religion. The Aryans were a race of gamblers. Gambling was developed by them into a science in very early days of the Aryan civilization so much so that they had even devised the dice and given them certain technical terms. The luckiest dice was called Krit and the unluckiest was called Kali. Treta and Dwapara were intermediate between them. Not only was gambling welldeveloped among the ancient Aryans but they did not play without stakes. They gambled with such abandon that there is really no comparison with their spirit of gambling. Kingdoms and even wives were offered as stakes at gambling. King Nala staked his kingdom and lost it. The Pandvas went much beyond. They not only staked their kingdom but they also staked their wife, Draupadi, and lost both. Among the Aryans gambling was not thegame of the rich. It was a vice of the many.
Devas/Demons in Persian/Iranian Avesta tails
Gods in Hindu tails. Avesta/ Zoroastrian rejected Devas as gods.
Ahura were good/lords in Persian pantheon and the deva were demons
The Vedas/ Hinduism reversed this and made the Devas the gods & Ahura the demons.
Genesis 6: Sons of God/Daughters Of Men Giving their women to Demons
The Devas were a powerful and most licentious community. They even molested the wives of the rishis. The story of how Indra raped Ahalya the wife ofRishi Gautama is well known. But the immoralities they committed on the Aryan women were unspeakable. The Devas as a community appears to haveestablished an overlordship over the Aryan community in very early times. This overlordship had become degenerated that the Aryan women had toprostitute themselves to RITINGS AND SPEECHES satisfy the lust of the Devas.
The Aryans took pride if his wife was in the keeping of a Deva and was impregnated by him. The mention is in the Mahabharata and in the Harivamshaof sons born to Arya women from Indra, Yama, Nasatya, Agni, Vayu and other Devas is so frequent that one is astounded to note the scale on which suchillicit intercourse between the Devas and the Aryan women was going on.
There is a mention of it in the Rig-Veda According to it the first right over an Aryan female was that of Soma, second of Gandharva, third of Agni and lastly of the Aryan. Every Aryan woman was pledged or loaned to some Deva who had a right to enjoy her first on becoming puber. Beforeshe could be married to an Aryan she had to be redeemed by getting the right of the Deva extinguished by making him a proper payment.
The Brahmin=God, Caste System= The Power
1: The Gods are tools to protect the caste system/demons likewise 2: Drivadians were forest people and worshipped nature gods.
3: Vedic Ayrans exonerated the caste system 4: Karma is the tool to justifythe Caste System 5: Devas are demons behind every idol
6: Brahman=Brahmin are bought good & evil
7: You can worship any god as long as you adhere to the caste system 8: Duty of every Hindu is to protect and abide in the caste system
9: Death inline with the caste system is justified by Karma
Offshoots of HinduismHISTORY OF BUDDHISM
Buddhism= Siddhartha Gautama= the enlightened one. 2500 years ago
Indian Prince who saw suffering, old age, death & a monk Why must people suffer?
Siddartha spent many years doing many religious practices such as praying, meditating, and fasting until he finally understood the basic truths of life.
This realization occurred after sitting under a Poplar-figtree in Bodh Gaya, India for many days, in deep meditation. He gained enlightenment, or nirvana, and was given the title of Buddha, which means Enlightened One
Buddhism doesn’t acknowledge a supreme god or deity. The teaching instead focus’s on achieving enlightenment
—a state of inner peace and wisdom. When followers reach this spiritual echelon, they’re said to have experienced nirvana/ overcoming self
Teaching of the Buddha
Buddha discovered Three Universal Truths and Four Noble Truths, which he then taught to the people for the next 45 years.
Three Universal Truths
Everything in life is impermanent and always changing
Because nothing is permanent, a life based on possessing things or persons doesn’t make you happy. Self There is no eternal, unchangingsoul and “self” is just a collection of changing characteristics or attributes: no eternal soul.
Four Noble Truths
- Human life has a lot of suffering.
- The cause of suffering is greed.
- There is an end to suffering.
- The way to end suffering is to follow the Middle Path.
Buddha taught people not to worship him as a god. He said they should take responsibility for their own lives and actions.
He taught that the Middle Way was the way to nirvana. The Middle Way meant not leading a life of luxury and indulgence but also not one oftoo much fasting and hardship. There are eight guides for following the Middle path
The Eightfold Path
Right understanding and viewpoint (based on the Four Noble Truths).
Right values and attitude (compassion rather than selfishness).
Right speech (don’t tell lies, avoid harsh, abusive speech, avoid gossip).
Right action (help others, live honestly, don’t harm living things, take care of the environment).
Right work (do something useful, avoid jobs which harm others).
Right effort (encourage good, helpful thoughts, discourage unwholesome destructive thoughts).
Right mindfulness (be aware of what you feel, think and do).
Right meditation (calm mind, practice meditation which leads to nirvana)
Meditation means focusing the mind to achieve an inner stillness that leads to a state of enlightenment Finding the inner peace. Chanting, breathing, martial arts,
Tipitaka: These texts, known as the “three baskets,” are thought to be the earliest collection of Buddhist writings.
Sutras: There are more than 2,000 sutras, which are sacred teachings embraced mainly by Mahayana Buddhists.
The Book of the Dead: This Tibetan text describes the stages of death in detail
The escape from samsara (Rebirths) is called Nirvana or enlightenment. Once Nirvana is achieved, and the enlightened individual physically dies,Buddhists believe that they will no longer be reborn. The Buddha taught that when Nirvana is achieved, Buddhists are able to see the world as it really is.
Reason for rebirth
Buddhist are reborn, according to Buddhist scripture, because of the same kind of clinging and desire that causes us to suffer. The desire of the self isso powerful that even when the body dies, the mind continues its clinging and searching. In this way, according to Buddhism, it builds a bridge to another body and takes birth again.
Buddha Believed in The Caste System; but with a twist
The Buddha condemned the caste system, which he considered unjust. He pointed out that there existed wicked and cruel people as well as virtuous and kind people in every caste. Any person who had committed a crime would be punished accordingly by his karma no matter what caste he belonged to. He said a person may be considered to have come from a high or low caste according to his good and bad deeds. Therefore, according to the Buddha it is the good and bad actions of a person and not his birth that should determine his caste.
The Buddha introduced the idea of placing a higher value on morality and the equality of people instead of on which family or caste a person is born into. This was also the first attempt to abolish discrimination and slavery in the history of mankind.
The Buddha said:
By birth one is not an outcaste,
By birth one is not a Brahmin;
By deeds alone one is an outcaste,
By deeds alone one is a Brahmin
