The direct yet contradictory relationship between the Holy Bible of Christianity and the Vedas of Hinduism,’ part fifty-nine.
“It is a shame that the software used to publish these articles written by Evangelical Examiner Knoxville to the knotmove.com website do not allow for the inclusion of the color-codes that have been applied to the Vedas and Upanishads,” commented Dr. D. James, President and teacher of The Lay School in Clinton, Tennessee, as he continued his presentation before The Lay School faculty on the direct yet contradictory relationship between the Holy Bible of Christianity and the Vedas of Hinduism, “for those color-codes provide an impressive visual of these truths that we are presenting to our faculty in these chapel sessions. In particular, we are referring to the ‘other gods’ color-code which permeates these passages, identifying the various words and names used to refer to the gods. In the sections we are to look at today, the same terminology of ‘that person’ and ‘the principle of every self’ is finally boiled down to ‘Pragâpati’ who, among other identities, is MAN. (As a side note to this study let us state that in the process of reading, studying, and color-coding the Rig-Veda, Sama-Veda, Yajur-Veda, and Upanishads, a separate Microsoft Word file was created that listed the various names of the gods and other words referring to the various gods through the practice of the Hindu priests and poets we have called ‘substitution’, and that that file numbers 80 pages!) Those passages in the Taittirîyaka-Upanishad, Third Adhyâya, Ninth Brâhmana, (p791), and reads as follows:
17 Sâkalya said: ‘Whosoever knows that person whose dwelling is seed, whose sight is the heart, whose mind is light, — the principle of every self, he indeed is a teacher, O Yâgñavalkya.’
Yâgñavalkya replied: ‘I know that person, the principle of every self, of whom thou speakest. The filial person, “he is he.” But tell me, Sâkalya, who is his devatâ?’
Sâkalya replied: ‘Pragâpati.’
18 Yâgñavalkya said: ‘Sâkalya, did those Brâhmanas (who themselves shrank from the contest) make thee the victim 1?’
Sâkalya said: ‘Yâgñavalkya, because thou hast decried the Brâhmanas of the Kuru-Pañkâlas, what 2 Brahman dost thou know?’
19 Yâgñavalkya said: ‘I know the quarters with their deities and their abodes.’
Sâkalya said: ‘If thou knowest the quarters with their deities and their abodes,
So, what we have learned through the passages we have looked at this week is that the one god known variably as ‘that person’, ‘that person in the sun’, and ‘the principle of every self’ is now identified in section 17 of this Ninth Brâhmana as ‘Pragâpati’ or MAN. BUT, man does not exist as ‘the person in the sun’; rather, man is a reflection of or is somehow related to some other entity referred to as ‘the person in the sun’. But as of yet, that person in the sun has yet to be positively identified!”
