Christianity – Jewish Bhakti Yoga (56)

Christianity is nothing but the Jewish version of traditional Vedic yoga of love and worship, better known as Bhakti Yoga. To find out, we will collect here some of the ideas, teachings and practices expressed by the greatest thinkers and admirers of Jesus Christ from the last almost 2,000 years of Christianity.

One of the signs of this truth is referring to the purest possible transmission of one’s own Holy Books, in this case to the original Gospel. The original teaching of the Gospel talks, just like yoga, about DISCIPLESHIP, and the followers of Christ are called nothing else than DISCIPLES. Such tendencies are observed in every sublime attempt to renew the tradition of the Christian school of the mystery of salvation. Bhakti Yoga without reference to the most sacred books would immediately cease to exist.

Baptism, i.e. washing the entire body in water, is a symbol of man’s spiritual rebirth, and the spiritual teachings of the Gospel preached by Jesus are more important than the Jewish books of the Old Testament. All Indian devotees, to this day, use a bath cleansing the entire body from sins by immersing in water (their favourite river is the Ganges), just as John the Baptist, Jesus Christ and the first Apostles (Aćaryas) taught it.

All devotees eat Prasadam – consecrated food containing the blessings of their Guru (Master) – the Apostles did likewise, eating the food indicated by Jesus as His memorial supper. Prasadam is eaten as an evening, consecrated meal, Prasadam is just such a Bhakti Yoga supper. Prasadam is the original of the Christian Eucharist.

A characteristic sign of the Vedic or Indian origin of Christianity is also the system of meeting once a week, called Dharmaćakra. In many Christian churches it is even a strict obligation. This is what ancient Vedic (Aryan) priests who propagated Bhakti Yoga recommended.

A strong belief in the unity of the entire community coming from the founder, even in face of divisions or schisms, is a great keynote of spiritual Christianity, undoubtedly coming from Bhakti Yoga, which, experiencing unity in Guru (Christ), is a panacea for all the suffering of the world. A strong belief in unity, ecumenism, is supported by the obligation to mission and preach the teachings about the holiness and uniqueness of one’s own Guru or founder of the tradition (Avatar). Missionary is an obvious feature of Bhakti Yoga, and such a community is always a fighting and preaching Assembly (Church, Congregation).

The Assemblies of God, as Christians can be called, have preached and are preaching the idea of ​​spiritual healing of body and mind. Basically, there is no evangelical, spiritual Christianity without the gift of spiritual healing. Devotees of traditional yoga, however you introduce them, will undoubtedly relate to real and strongly charismatic spiritual healing. It is one and the same: to develop spiritually means to remove the nuisances (diseases) that disturb our lives.

Dharmaćakras (community meetings) of Bhakti Yoga are filled with the Holy Spirit sent by God or through the Saviour (Kalkin, Vishnu), always accompanied by real experiences and phenomena, such as charismatic healings or the phenomenon of speaking in tongues (glossalia) and prophesying.

Each Dharmaćakra is a specific spiritual and artistic program filled with prayer and singing. Singing songs of praise and worship to God, sometimes accompanied by musical instruments, sometimes without them, is the practice of Bhajans. Here is perhaps the most powerful evidence pointing to the origin of Christianity straight from India. Some movements and branches of Christianity use musical instruments, and some use only their own voice as an instrument. This phenomenon existed thousands of years ago in the land of Sindh, among various branches of Bhakti Yoga.

Devotees would always like to convey their simple spiritual truth to others as they understood it, regardless of their attempts to understand what others may already understand. They often find themselves embarrassed when it comes to light that someone has already received and accepted the same words of God’s Teaching. Then they don’t know what to talk about and wonder how it could happen. It is a common phenomenon among all God’s Bhaktas.

A characteristic feature of Christianity is the exercise of divine service and preaching by both men and women, provided that personal life is led in poverty, renunciation and sanctification. Such a preacher is nothing else than a Samnyasin wandering as a Sadhu, a man of God (Son of Man). Many movements that claim to be Christian die spiritually if they limit the rights of one gender to missionary service to God. And Bhakti Yoga always reminds us that every person can be called to perform God’s service according to their abilities or, more precisely, spiritual gifts, charismatically received.

Devotees call God the Heavenly Father, and sometimes they also express the idea of ​​God as the unity of Father and Mother. Fundamentally, God is always One and the same. Devotees of one of the extreme options consider the Founder (Avatar) to be the incarnation of God and a being of a special, unique nature. Such an Avatar is the Son of God, always existing and born of God the Creator Himself. The concept of the Heavenly Father and the Son of God is present in every bhaktist tradition. This is a common trait among the devotees of God. Some believe that the incarnation of God (the Son) is actually the Father himself in human disguise (form). Divine energy or aura is called the Holy Spirit and is sometimes treated as intelligent energy or spiritual light, and sometimes as a special Divine Person in the form of energy. The Holy Spirit (Śaktiśiva) is a kind of figure taking beautiful and charming female shapes. She is then the Mother of God or the Virgin Female Angel. This is also the case in the Old Testament, where Ruach Kaddosh is feminine, the wife of Yahveh. However, devotees always strive over time for one truth, and therefore for one image or concept of God. Truly, Bhakti Marga is always a monotheistic religion, the path of mono-deity (even if it had three or more persons, figures or faces). We have described the entire spectrum of branches of Christianity in their understanding of the Divine Person.

By calling God (Yehovah, Yahveh) his Father, Jesus completely revealed that his ideas about God have Vedic roots, because only Aryans call God so warmly, directly and personally. Aryan Bhakti Yoga always refers to God warmly and cordially, as one’s own Father. Therefore, Baba = Abba is an Indian and Semitic invocation of the one and only supreme God, the Creator of the Universe.

The imparting of the power or energy of the Holy Spirit (Śaktipat) through the laying on of hands is one of the proofs that Christianity is Bhakti Yoga, as it is the traditional way of imparting spiritual contact among all Bhaktas. Such a message is a blessing, healing, and sometimes even ordination.

Revelations by holy prophets or angels of God also constitute an inherent landscape of bhaktist groups. Appearing miraculous signs (stigmata) revealing a connection with the founder or first master of the spiritual movement bring many experiences to the participants and, increasing the strength of faith, become spiritual evidence of the group’s membership in the broad Bhakti Yoga movement.

Every Bhakti Yoga movement teaches that the Holy Books are the authentic and eternal Word of God. In this way we have the Eternal Gospel or Sanathana Dharma of the entire Aryan spiritual tradition derived from the Vedas. Some aura of special uniqueness, selection or elitism usually accompanies practicing Bhaktas. This is a sign that the Congregation (Sangha) is traveling along the Path of Love, as the term Bhakti Marga can be literally translated (Bhakti = Love, Marga = Path). In fact, each group that cultivates more strongly some part of God’s Science (Veda, Gospel) constitutes a unique community. It is not a distortion of the eternal Bhakti Marga, but rather its spiritual class advanced in specialized studies and teachings. The murderers of heretics and sectarians were in fact the destroyers of Christianity, devils in human bodies. The devotees cultivated Love, Bhakti and became loving people themselves. The torturers of heretics and apostates showed that, not understanding the essence of the Eternal Religion (Sanathana Dharma), they committed themselves and sold themselves to the Devil, the Father of Liars, also known as the Forger of Destiny.

A common phenomenon associated with the outpouring of Bhakti (Divine Love) is ecstatic dancing in conscious rapture until a vision of heaven is achieved. This is how the prophet David and Elijah danced. This is how Jesus’ first disciples danced, and this phenomenon is still being revived among groups of devotees. The appearance of dancing groups means that God is actually being worshiped. Gathering into a group or community, traveling together from city to city, living on alms or your own handicrafts, and above all, worshiping God with dancing and singing is a practice called Kirtana and well known among Aryan spiritual communities from India. Even pre-Aryan Śaivite spirituality knows this element of Bhakti Marga perfectly well.

A phenomenon known from the practice of Bhakti Yoga is tithing given as a donation to the needs of one’s own community or congregation. The oldest tradition of Bhakti Yoga gives tithes as an offering to one’s Guru or Spiritual Master. This practice is recommended as one of the ways to purify the bonds of your material existence. In another, completely communal version, no tithe is devoutly offered and instead a complete community of all material goods is established. Of course, renouncers participate in this only to a small extent.

A very characteristic sign of the Bhakti Yoga movement is the practical purity of life consistent with the content of the holy scriptures. This means giving up narcotic substances such as opium, hashish, alcohol or cigarettes, not touching excrement (urine and faeces), stopping eating blood and blood products, or completely stopping eating animal bodies. The compulsion to serve in military structures serving war is usually generally rejected. Sometimes it is allowed, but only for strictly defensive or religious purposes (protection of movement or life). How many Christian communities embrace pure and sublime Bhakti Yoga.

Another feature of Bhakti is the fact that no spiritual gift, neither healing, nor prophecy, nor blessing, can be bought or acquired in any way. Mysterious initiations, i.e. Sacraments, are available only thanks to personal attitude, commitment and sacrifice. The principle of authentic Bhakti is that the gift of blessing cannot be sold, otherwise it would be sacrilege. There is no price for spiritual initiation, no fees for administering any sacrament. Admission to the community is not achieved thanks to a high entry fee or an entrance fee. The only price is commitment to the cause and your own sacrifice. The requirement for active involvement in missionary or preaching activities is nothing more than the requirement for being a regular member of any other organization. However, the activity is specific, from the requirement to participate in the religious life of the congregation, to converting non-believers or those who believe differently, or working for the community.

A feature of Bhakti Marga is also the simplification of many more complicated mystical or spiritual issues or the rejection of what is not easy for the mind to accept or rather comprehend. Bhakti thus becomes a mass movement, emotional and unsophisticated when it comes to the complex mystical truths of faith. Such simplicity, or even simplification and rejection of what is too complicated or incomprehensible, is the key to identifying a multitude of genuinely Christian, bhaktist groups of Aryan origin.

Devotees are great Pneumaticians – worshipers of the Holy Spirit. The earliest Aryan spiritual culture based on Bhakti is the Śaivite tradition. Lord Śiva is the Person of the Holy Spirit, and Śakti is the power and spiritual energy of God Himself. Souls Perfected in the Holy Spirit are called ‘chosen’ or ‘sojourners’. They are said to come from the heavens. They are called the Saints of God. We have a whole gallery of Christians ‘chosen’ by God living even in our times. It’s impossible to mention all of them!

The idea of ​​Divine Love and mutual love of human brotherhood is the main spiritual principle, the law of the religion based on Bhakti Yoga. The ancient doctrine of Bhakti teaches: “Love one another with a pure and sincere love; God is Love and Love is God; Love your neighbour as yourself.”

The God in whom one believes and in whom one personally trusts is the Supreme, Only, Powerful and Good God. It is God who is Love itself. This is Bhakti indicated by Jesus even in the Old Testament. The Semitic race in its essence is a race originating from Kashmir. Probably as a result of the intensifying Aryan invasion of India, some of the Kashmiris fled to Egypt and later settled in today’s Israel. Characteristic of old Kashmir Shaivism is the cult of Saturday as a holy day, which has been preserved in the entire Judean and Christian rite. In Tibet, it was the Chinese who abolished the observance of Saturday and introduced Sunday as a day off from work. Śiva and Yahveh are absolutely identical figures. Today, various reborn fire rituals bear every resemblance to the original Semitic religion. Yahveh is always accompanied by Fire. Similarly, its progenitor described in the Rigveda, the oldest revealed Holy Scripture in the world. Even the purely Aryan Veda, when describing God, uses the name Jahvah, as it appears in the original transliteration, and associates Him with Agni – the radiant Fire of God. The original meaning of the term Agni is Glory, Glorious. Therefore, in the Veda, as in the Old Testament, Jahvah (Jhvh) is surrounded by Glory in form of Fire. This is the description according to the Aryan Śaivite spiritual tradition, which is closest to the Polish nation. We say that the Śaivite, Aryan spiritual culture is closest to Poles, because we are part of the entire Indo-European race, including the Celts, Germans, Greeks, Romans and Hindus.

The characteristic teaching of the Lord’s Devotees is that God is eternal, and the Son of God, His earthly embodiment or manifestation, was created from Nothingness (Void, Tohu va Bohu). Fulfilling his mission, the Son of God returns to his Heavenly Father and merges with Him into One. Such teachings are very Aryan and biblical, and typical for Aryan communities. It is worth adding that this nothingness or emptiness, as the matter from which the Son of God is created, is a spiritual matter or substance, often referred to as the Light of Heaven or the Energy of Love.

One of the teachings of Bhakti Yoga is the proclaimed right to govern society in the theocratic system of the God’s Country, where each community of believers is independent and governed by independently adopted or customary laws. The theocratic God’s Country that Bhakti Yoga teaches about looks the same as the teachings about the Kingdom of Peace and Justice in the teachings of devotees of Jesus Christ. It is the Kingdom of Freedom in the Holy Spirit. Secular and religious-political authorities see this greatest libertarian idea as the greatest threat to their existence. And rightly so, regimes must in their essence fear freedom, a libertarian state and the religion of freedom, and that is Bhakti Yoga.

A typical issue of the Way of Love system is the jump from a finite dimension to infinity. In Yoga we call these Saguna (Form) and Nirguna (Infinity) respectively. This is the issue of a personal and imaginable God and, on the other hand, the issue of His infinity and unknowability. Duality usually arises in the form of the issue of human and divine nature in the person of the Prophet or the Son of God, and the issue of whether God is a Person with a face or is an Infinite Being, and therefore formless and impossible to imagine. It is believed in Bhakti Yoga that the most perfect solution to these issues is to combine them in the form of the middle way. Extremes appear and are considered only partial truth. Holding on to Saguna (The Form) is called the lower vehicle, and holding on to Nirguna (the Infinite) is called the higher vehicle. Lower and higher refer here only to the degree of difficulty of understanding and imagining for our otherwise finite minds. The Old Testament consistently sticks to the vehicle of Nirguna Dhyana, i.e. it prohibits making images and pictures and worshiping them, and the only image and sign of God’s presence is the Fire (Agni) kindled on the sacrificial altar. The lower vehicle, however, consistently considers all statues and images of saints only as symbols of the divinity they express and warns against mistaking the symbol for the actual God or His saint. It may seem obvious, but the lack of mutual understanding in this matter sometimes obscures both Love and common sense, which can be seen and stated as the hallmark of all Bhaktas.

The most pure and sober branches of the Tree of Life called Bhakti Yoga recommend the cultivation of fasting and prayer as the basis of one’s earthly existence. True abstinence of those living in God’s Love for creatures also involves not consuming meat or alcohol. Wine or any other drugs are never used in rituals. Only pure water is used, both for baptism, sprinkling and the Eucharist. True Devotees are always Aquarians, because clean and healthy water is the basic medicine and the basis of the liturgy. One may mention the washing of lingams with pure water by worshipers of Lord Shiva (Jehovah). Often celibate monks and nuns are models of a life of renunciation and Christlike. However, all people, regardless of their status or origin, are treated as equal and everyone can expect God’s grace and charisma.

The examples of the truest Christians, Bhaktas of the Lord, are the Ebionites or Nazirites. The vows of Nazirite (Renunciation, Abstinence) are the most characteristic feature of the Bhaktas mentioned in the Old Testament. Jesus Christ invented such flowers in the writings of the Old Testament to demonstrate the compliance of the proclaimed Revealed Mystery with traditional religion, because according to Vedic science, Bhakti Yoga is the Essence of every true religion and each one is based on Bhakti. Therefore, the Yoga of Love must have been included at least in trace amounts on pages of the Old Testament.

Beginning Bhaktas usually shave completely and cut their hair short. When they complete their basic education with Guru and wander around preaching the spiritual Good News on their own, then, as in the Nazirite vows, they refrain from shaving and cutting their hair (sometimes they shave, but only once every three years).

A common sign of the Bhakti Yoga community is the aversion to legalism that does not arise from the Holy Scriptures. Therefore, free partnerships are practiced or only vows made by one’s own priest are accepted as valid. Detachment to matter and corporeality sometimes manifests itself in a somewhat loose approach to relationships and partnerships, but the sanctity of the family is generally accepted and promoted in some way. Love is the basis of an intimate relationship between a woman and a man. If love is born, then marriage is actually born. If love expires, the marriage relationship de facto ceases to exist. Other issues are only legalistic in nature and Bhaktas do not always accept them (and sometimes even hate them, which is born from the very essence of Love – Bhakti). Similar is attitude towards taxes which are supporting the anti-religious structure of a non-theocratic state, compulsory work, military service and many other issues of legalism. Love is the force of God that destroys conditions and structures that oppose it. Many Bhaktas sacrificed their lives for freedom, sometimes becoming revolutionaries or martyrs in the process. They are always defenders of freedom and human dignity. The most radical Bhaktas believe that everything that serves God is permitted and they act based only on the Eternal Gospel (Sanathana Dharma) and the truth reflected by God in one’s own soul according to inspiration and recognition!

When the Apostle Saint Thomas, supposedly weak in faith, followed his Master Jesus to India and settled near Madras, he was teaching only Bhakti Yoga, well known in India. Only the name of a specific Guru, the Spiritual Master, who was Jesus, brought something new. Semite in India is not a new phenomenon, nor has it ever been, in view of Kashmir, which is full of people of the originally Semitic race.

The Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles are excellent books showing basically the entirety of Bhakti Yoga. Typical Indian treatises are the Guru Gita and the Bhagavad Gita. You can study the principles and details of the Eternal Path of Love. Of course, there are many more revealed Bhakti Marga Sacred Scriptures. However, their complete discussion would require a much greater spiritual study, which is what Christian Yoga does to some extent when discussing the issues of Bhakti towards the Gospel. Christianity is Bhakti Yoga and Bhakti Marga is the Christ Way. This is Christian Yoga, spiritual, Pentecostal and Gnostic, fully Rosicrucian. Bhaktiyoga is the eternal Path of the Prophetic Disciple, the Sufa of the Book of Solomon.
