In other words, Pushan and Indra correspond
to the two Ashvins, who are the personifications of the two races, Dravidas
and Aryans. The myth of Pushan and Suryâ also evokes that of Yama
and Yami. These two are another pair of Solar Twins closely connected and
often identified to the two aspects of the Sun: rising and falling. Sury , the coveted bride, in turn, represents the Earth, whose possession the twin races of Atlantis endlessly dispute.
The Twin Lovers of the
Those who know the rich imagery of the
Vedic hymns will have no trouble in realizing that the Twins are the source
of the exquisite allegories that pervade the ancient myths. The omnipresent
Twins take all sorts of shapes and avatars. They are also the changelings,
in the ancient acception of shape-changing.
In more ways than one, the Twins also correspond to the two
lovers of the
Song of Songs who assume all shapes both animal and
human. As Harold Bayley demonstrated, this beautiful biblical composition
has been cribbed, almost verbatim, from an Egyptian poem entitled
The Burden of Isis.
This piece, in turn was copied from a Hindu hymn entitled
The Heifer of Dawn.
The Heifer is the Cow-Mother, in her renewed avatar, she of a myriad names
Indeed, it is far more than a coincidence
that the two lovers of the
Song of Songs have been identified to
Solomon and to the Shulamite (or "Veiled One") and to Osiris and Isis. Solomon
and Osiris are representations of the Fallen Sun.
Amon = "Sun Lord". And Osiris has a name related to that of Surya (the
Sun), as well as to the Greek word
seirius = "shiny one" = the Sun.
As A. Bayley and others have shown, the Shulamite
is Dawn, and Solomon is the Rising (or Setting) Sun. In another connection,
she is also Cinderella, and he is the Prince. Cinderella changes shape
just as do the lovers of the
Song of Songs and the Vedic Twins Pushan
and Suryâ or Yama and Yami. The omnipresence of the shape-changing
Twins attests both their archaic character; as well as the importance of
The Fundament of the Mystery Religions
The myth of the twin lovers forms the fundament
of the Mystery Religions of all times, as well as of Christianism, Hinduism
and Buddhism, not to mention other religions. The fact that they figure
in the mythologies of both the Jews and the Aryans, as well as of the Egyptians,
the Hindus, the Sumerians, the Greeks and even the Amerinds, testifies
that the myth was composed before the diaspora of humanity
from its primordial birthplace , in Atlantis-Eden. To believe the Bible,
this crucial event took place shortly after the Flood and the destruction
of the Tower of Babel, itself an allegory of Atlantis' fortified capital city
The conclusion is that the myth indeed
relates the eschatological events connected with the Flood, allegorized
by the sacrifices of the horse and the goat in the
by the Cosmogonic Hierogamy of the King and the Whore. This marriage is
also featured in most ancient Cosmogonies. In India it is the one even today commemorated
in the Tantric rituals. The fact that the rite still survives in India that
Museum of Humanity attests its Hindu origin, for the Hindus are not only
most conservative in religious matters, but are also known exporters of
religions such as Buddhism and Mystery Cults from which most others derive.
Alexandra David-Néel the famous
French researcher who lived for several years in India and Tibet in the last century describes
a Tantric ritual she witnessed in India, in her book The India Where
I Lived. The ritual was secret, and she watched it hidden and disguised.
The worshippers belonged to the local nobility and performed what the
chakra-puja ("ring ritual"), that is, a communal sharing of
food and love wherethe worshippers form a circle (chakra).
In the ritual she watched, as a prolegomenon, a goat was sacrificed and
eaten communially in a way reminiscent of the ancient Vedic ritual of the
ashvamedha. During the Tantric rituals the Five
the Five Elements are consumed. The
Makaras ("M sounds") are
Wine represents fire; fish, water; grain,
earth; flesh, air; and love, ether. The flesh is that of the mountain goat
or a bird, aerial animals by nature. Love is the ethereal principle, a
sort of metaphysical fire (aither) that incends all nature. Indeed,
it represents the incending of the world that takes place at the world s
end. An important feature of the horse and the goat sacrifice we already
mentioned is the fact that the animals are tied to the
stauros that represents the Cross. Miss David-Néel saw the
sacrificial pole of the goat and affirms that it was forked like an Y.
The Y is actually the earliest form of
the Cross. Indeed, this shape corresponds to that of the Semitic
which the Essenes of Qumnran equated with the mystic Christ. Dupont-Sommer,
the famous expert on such matters published a fundamental book (La Doctrine
Secrète de la Lettre Vaw), in which he studies the problem in
depth. His conclusion is that the
vaw represents an archetypical
Christ, and is connected with the Flood and the destruction of the world
by Fire and Water.
