SANTA MARÍA MAGDALENA DE PAZZIS CEMETERY – OLD SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO

 

 

A LANDMARK ATTRACTION IN OLD SAN JUAN…BE SURE TO AT LEAST TAKE A LOOK FROM THE FORT EL MORRO WALLS

In San Juan, even a cemetery is extraordinary.  Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis is one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world.  Visiting a cemetery is typically not at the top of the list of must-visit attractions, but while in Old San Juan, it is a sight you have to see.

Nestled on a hill in front of the blue Atlantic waters, and framed by the city walls right next to Castillo San Felipe del Morro (El Morro), you’ll find the resting place for some of the most prominent Puerto Ricans and individuals lucky enough to get a spot in this elegant and unique cemetery.

The cemetery was named in honor of Saint Maria Magdalena de Pazzi.  The cemetery dates back to early 1863, when construction was begun.  It was then administered by Carmelite nuns.  The oceanfront location of the cemetery is symbolic of the journey over to the afterlife and originates from Spanish superstition and fear of death.

The cemetery is divided into two parts, the old and new cemetery.  Walk through the beautiful gate painted in yellow and white, and there you’ll find the oldest burial sites including the ones of notable and important personalities in Puerto Rican history.  Among them are Jose Ferrer, Jose de Diego, Rafael Hernandez, Jose Celso Barbosa, Salvador Brau, and Pedro Albizu Campos.

Different shades of blue from the Atlantic, deep brown city walls, colorful flowers, bright white burial sites, and elegant, ornate, marble life-size sculptures are a photographers dream.  It’s truly a beautiful place with so many beautiful colors contrasting perfectly against the blue skies.  If the dead could hear, then we can’t imagine a better place to be with the constant sounds of ocean waves, whistling of the trade winds, and the laughter of children running around the grounds of El Morro flying kites.  It’s perfectly understandable why these burial sites are one of the most sought after by Puerto Ricans, many paying top dollar for them.

 

VISITING SANTA MARÍA MAGDALENA DE PAZZIS CEMETERY

Looking west is the fort of Castillo San Felipe del Morro (El Morro), and looking east is the infamous La Perla (one of the oldest slums in Puerto Rico and perhaps the last one in existence).  If you’re going to visit the cemetery, you’ll have to walk or drive through a short tunnel on Calle Tiburcio Reyes, and once at the cemetery, you’ll be right next to La Perla.  Old San Juan is perhaps one of the safest areas in San Juan due to the strong police presence and respect of locals towards tourists.  The area bordering La Perla is always patrolled, so feel free to visit, but use safety common sense as you would in any other place.  Avoid visiting the cemetery at night or alone.  Visit during day light hours and don’t go into La Perla.  There is a cemetery worker at the office during the day.

To see most of the cemetery, you’ll need about 40 minutes.  If you don’t have time, you can get a glimpse from the city walls right next to El Morro, and binoculars would come in handy.  You can get great photographs from the walls.

 

Tomas de Torquemada (El inquisidor)

download

Torquemada. Para los oídos ingleses, el mismo nombre suena torturado y cruel. Y Tomás de Torquemada era eso. Era un hombre intolerante en una época de hombres intolerantes. Un judío, nacido en una familia de conversos, se volvió la mayor parte de su furia contra su propio pueblo. Con energía y conexiones, era inevitable que Torquemada subiera al poder. Después de estudiar teología en el convento dominicano de San Pablo en Valladolid, se convirtió en prior del convento de Santa Cruz en Segovia. También se convirtió en confesor de la corte real. Allí susurró a los oídos del rey Fernando y de la reina Isabel que muchos conversos judíos practicaban secretamente ritos judaicos mientras aparentemente fingían ser cristianos.

Ayudó a la pareja real a solicitar una inquisición sobre este asunto. La solicitud fue concedida. En 1483, Torquemada se hizo gran inquisidor.

Torquemada desarrolló una red opresiva de espías y policía secreta. Sus tribunales convocaron a miles de personas. La mayoría de ellos estaban completamente en una pérdida en cuanto a lo que se suponía que habían hecho. Un tercio fueron torturados.

Las tres torturas más comunes debían ser colgadas por los brazos hasta que fueran sacadas de sus órbitas; Ser forzado a tragar galones de agua; Y ser atormentado. La inquisición mantuvo registros de interrogatorios, y estos muestran a la gente pidiendo que se les diga qué admitir para que puedan escapar de su agonía. -He dicho que hice todo lo que dicen los testigos, señores, que me suelten, porque no lo recuerdo … por el amor de Dios, ten misericordia de mí -exclamó una mujer.

Un hombre sometido a la tortura insistió en que era un buen católico. Si querían que él dijera que era un hereje, lo haría por la tortura. Señor Inquisidor, ¿qué quiere que diga su señoría? Otra: “No sé qué decir … Oh Dios, Oh Dios no hay misericordia, ¡Oh Dios me ayude, ayúdame!”

Peor que las torturas era el miedo a la inmolación. Torquemada quemó a más de 2.000 víctimas “culpables”. Naturalmente, con tal expediente lo odiaron. Le pareció necesario ir con los guardaespaldas. Ni siquiera el Papa pudo detener su cruel trabajo. Cuando Sixto IV en un toro absolvió a todos los Conversos de cualquier error que pudieran haber cometido, Fernando se negó a quedar atado por el toro.

Torquemada continuó la persecución y Sixtus retrocedió. Torquemada alargó su alcance. Tenía todos los judíos inconversos expulsados ​​de España. Paradójicamente y trágicamente, este brutal negocio se hizo en nombre de Cristo, que nunca levantó un dedo para lastimar a nadie, sino que voluntariamente dio su propia vida por los demás. Sin embargo, la muerte nos alcanza a todos.

En esta fecha, 16 de septiembre de 1498, a la edad de 78 años, Torquemada murió. Si España esperaba con su muerte un cese de la brutalidad, esperaban en vano. Su aparato seguía viviendo tras él, aplastando nuevas víctimas mucho tiempo después de su desaparición.

Tomas de Torquemada (The Enquisitor)

download

Torquemada. To English ears, the very name sounds tortured and cruel. And Tomás de Torquemada was that. He was a most intolerant man in an age of intolerant men. A Jew, born into a family of converts, he turned most of his fury against his own people.

With energy and connections, it was inevitable that Torquemada should rise to power. After studying theology at the Dominican convent of San Pablo in Valladolid, he became prior of Santa Cruz convent in Segovia. He also became confessor to the royal court. There he whispered in the ears of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella that many Jewish converts were secretly practicing Judaic rites while outwardly pretending to be Christians.

He helped the royal couple draft a request for an inquisition into this matter. The request was granted. In 1483, Torquemada was made grand inquisitor.

Torquemada developed an oppressive network of spies and secret police. His courts summoned thousands of individuals. Most of them were completely at a loss as to what they were supposed to have done. One third were tortured. The three most common tortures were to be hung by the arms until they were pulled from their sockets; to be forced to swallow gallons of water; and to be racked.

The inquisition kept records of interrogations, and these show people begging to be told what to admit so they could escape their agony. “I have said that I did all that the witnesses say. Señores, release me, for I do not remember it. . . . for God’s sake have mercy on me,” pleaded one woman. A man undergoing the torture insisted he was a good Catholic. If they wanted him to say he was a heretic, he would because of the torture. “Señor Inquisidor, what does your lordship want me to say?” Another: “I don’t know what to say. . . . Oh God, Oh God there’s no mercy, Oh God help me, help me!”

Worse than the tortures was the fear of immolation. Torquemada burned over 2,000 “guilty” victims. Naturally, with such a record he was loathed. He found it necessary to go about with bodyguards. Even the Pope could not stop his cruel work. When Sixtus IV in a bull absolved all the Conversos of any wrong they might have done, Ferdinand refused to be bound by the bull. Torquemada continued the persecution and Sixtus backed down. Torquemada extended his reach. He had all unconverted Jews expelled from Spain.

Paradoxically and tragically, this brutal business was done in the name of Christ, who never raised a finger to hurt anybody but willingly gave his own life for others. However, death reaches us all. On this date, September 16, 1498, at the stout age of 78, Torquemada died. If Spain hoped with his death for a cessation of brutality, they hoped in vain. His apparatus lived on after him, crushing new victims long after he was gone.

Welcome to the era of transhumanism

In a compelling webseries from 2012 entitled H+, we were introduced to a future world where much of the population has a hi-tech implant, allowing individuals a direct neural interface with the internet. As often is the case in science fiction, things don’t turn out well for those technological pioneers. A virus infects the implant and chaos quickly descends on a human race that has become biologically fused with technology.

The series was an overt examination of a transhumanist future, with the title H+ being an appropriation of the common transhuman abbreviation. Five years after the series’ birth, we live in a present even more entrenched on a path towards the realization of transhumanist ideals.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZedLgAF9aEg

Early in February 2017, innovative billionaire Elon Musk reiterated an idea he had floated several times over the past year: Humans need to merge with machines. Musk sees a direct brain/computer interface as an absolute necessity, not only in order for us to evolve as a species, but as a way of keeping up with the machines we are creating. According to Musk, if we don’t merge with the machines, we will become useless and irrelevant.

While Elon Musk does not self-identify as a “transhumanist,” the idea of fusing man with machine is fundamental to this movement that arose over the course of the 20th century. And as we move into a tumultuous 21st century, transhumanism is quickly shifting from its sci-fi influenced philosophical and cultural niche into a more mainstream, and increasingly popular, movement.

Zoltan Istvan, a prominent futurist and transhumanist, is currently making a bold political run for the position of Governor of California. “We need leadership that is willing to use radical science, technology, and innovation – what California is famous for –to benefit us all,” Istvan declared in a recent editorial published by Newsweek. “We need someone with the nerve to risk the tremendous possibilities to save the environment through bioengineering, to end cancer by seeking a vaccine or a gene-editing solution for it.”

What is transhumanism?

Simply put, transhumanism is a broad intellectual movement that advocates for the transformation of humanity through embracing technology. Thinkers in the field opine that our intellectual, physical and psychological capabilities can, and should, be enhanced by any and all available emerging technologies. From genetic modification to make us smarter and live longer, to enhancing our physical capabilities through bioengineering and mechanical implants, transhumanists see our future as one where we transcend our physical bodies with the aid of technology.

The term “transhuman” can be traced back several hundred years, but in terms of our current use we can look to 20th century biologist and eugenicist, Julian Huxley. Across a series of lectures and articles in the 1950s, Huxley advocated for a type of utopian futurism where humanity would evolve and transcend its present limitations.

“We need a name for this new belief,” Huxley wrote in 1957. “Perhaps transhumanism will serve; man remaining man, but transcending himself, by realizing the new possibilities of and for his human nature.”

Huxley’s ideas were arguably inspired by influential speculative fiction of the mid-20th century from the likes of Arthur C. Clarke and Robert Heinlein, and consequently his more specific transhumanist philosophies went on to influence a generation of cyberpunk authors in the 1980s. It was in this era that the first self-described transhumanists began appearing, having formal meetings around the University of California.

With the pace of technological advancement dramatically accelerating into the 21st century, transhumanist thinking began to manifest in more specific futurist visions. Cryonics and life extension technology was one focus of transhumanists, while others looked to body modification, gender transitioning and general biohacking as a way of transcending the limits of our physical bodies.

What could go wrong?

Plenty of criticisms have been lobbed at transhumanists over the years, with their extreme views of the technological future of humanity causing many to question whether this is a direct pathway to losing touch with what makes us essentially human. The fear that we will merge into some kind of inhuman, god-like, robot civilization quite fairly frightens and disturbs those with more traditional perspectives on humanity.

Science fiction classically reflects many fears of transhumanist futures, from Skynet taking over the world to a Gattaca-like future where genetic modification creates dystopian class separation. But prominent transhumanist critic Francis Fukuyama has soberly outlined the dangers of this modern movement in his book, Our Posthuman Future: Consequences of the Biotechnology Revolution.

Fukuyama comprehensively argues that the complexity of human beings cannot be so easily reduced into good and bad traits. If we were to try to eliminate traits we considered to be negative, be it through genetic modification or otherwise, we would be dangerously misunderstanding how we fundamentally function. “If we weren’t violent and aggressive we wouldn’t be able to defend ourselves; if we didn’t have feelings of exclusivity, we wouldn’t be loyal to those close to us; if we never felt jealousy, we would also never feel love,” he writes.

Some of the more valid concerns about the dawning transhumanist future are the socioeconomic repercussions of such a speedy technological evolution. As the chasm between rich and poor grows in our current culture, one can’t help but be concerned that future advancements could become disproportionately limited to those with the financial resources to afford them. If life extension technologies start to become feasible, and they are only available to the billionaire class, then we enter a scenario where the rich get richer and live longer, while the poor get poorer and die sooner.

Without exceptionally strong political reform maintaining democratic access to human enhancement technologies, it’s easy to foresee the rise of a disturbing genetic class divide. As environmentalist and activist Bill McKibben writes: “If we can’t afford the fifty cents a person it would take to buy bed nets to protect most of Africa from malaria, it is unlikely we will extend to anyone but the top tax bracket these latest forms of genetic technology.”

Remember eugenics …

The looming specter of eugenics hovers over a great deal of transhumanist thought. In the first half of the 20th century the term became disturbingly, but not unreasonably, associated with Nazi Germany. Sterilizing or euthanizing those who displayed characteristics that were deemed to be imperfect was ultimately outlawed as a form of genocide. But as the genome revolution struck later in the century a resurgence in the philosophical ideals of eugenics began to arise.

Transhumanist thought often parallels the ideals of eugenics, although most self-identifying transhumanists separate themselves from that stigmatized field, preferring terms like reprogenetics and germinal choice. The difference between the negative outcomes of eugenics and the more positive, transhumanist notion of reprogenetics seems to be one of consent. In a 21st century world of selective genetic modification, all is good as long as all parents equally have the choice to genetically modify their child, and are not forced by governments who are trying to forcefully manage the genetic pool.

Prominent transhumanist advocate Nick Bostrom, labeled by The New Yorker as the leading transhumanist philosopher of today, argues that critics of the movement always focus on the potential risks or negative outcomes without balancing the possible positive futures. He advocates that the mere potential of a negative future outcome is not enough to stifle technological momentum.

Bostrom lucidly makes his point in an essayexamining the transhumanist perspectives on human genetic modifications. “Good consequences no less than bad ones are possible,” he writes. “In the absence of sound arguments for the view that the negative consequences would predominate, such speculations provide no reason against moving forward with the technology.”

But what about God?

At first glance it would seem like the transhumanism movement would be synonymous with atheism. In 2002 the Vatican released an expansive statement exploring the intersection of technology and religion. The statement warned that changing a human’s genetic identity was a “radically immoral” action. The old adage of the scientist playing God certainly raises its head frequently in criticisms of transhumanism. Zoltan Istvan even penned an op-ed entitled “I’m an Atheist, Therefore I’m a Transhumanist” in which he, rather weakly, attempted to blend the two movements.

But there are some compelling intersections between religion and transhumanism that point to the possibility that the two sides are not as mutually exclusive as one would think. A poll by the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies, founded by Nick Bostrom, discovered that only half of the transhumanists it surveyed identified as either atheist or agnostic.

Lincoln Cannon, founder of both the Mormon Transhumanist Association and the Christian Transhumanist Association (the very existence of these entities says something), has been advocating for a modern form of post secular religion based on both scientific belief and religious faith. Cannon sees transhumanism as a movement that allows for humanity to evolve into what he labels “superhumans.”

In his treatise titled, “The New God Argument,” Cannon envisions a creator God akin to our superhuman future potential. He posits an evolutionary cycle where we were created by a superhuman God, before then evolving into becoming our own superhuman Gods, from which we will create new life that will worship us as Gods and continue the cycle anew.

The New God Argument presents a fascinating case for aan evolution of religious thought, but it also pushes transhumanism into the realms of spirituality in ways that are bound to make many of the movement’s advocates uncomfortable. Another more extreme religious offshoot of transhumanism is Terasem, a self-described “transreligion.”

Terasem recalls a 1990s-styled new-age sentiment with its four core beliefs: life is purposeful, death is optional, God is technological, and love is essential. Founded by millionaire entrepreneur Martine Rothblatt, Terasem functions as both a spiritual transhumanist movement and a charitable organization that invests into technological research. The movement is especially focused on cryonic technology and researching ways to preserve human consciousness through downloading one’s thoughts and memories into either a mainframe or an independent social robot.

The rise of the biohackers

At the turn of the century, a transhumanist community began to form that fused the ethos of computer hacking with a body modification movement determined to create do-it-yourself cybernetic devices. These “Grinders” embraced cyborg technologies that could be directly integrated into their organic bodies.

Biohacking can take the form of pharmaceutical enhancements that hack one’s body chemistry, to implanting electronics into the body such as magnets or RFID and NFC tags. These transhumanist grinders sit at the furthermost borders of the movement, experimenting on their own bodies with occasionally quite extreme DIY surgical procedures.

Lepht Anonym is a Berlin-based biohacker who advocates cybernetics for the masses. Lepht (who identifies as genderless) has performed numerous body modifications over the past decade, including implanting neodymium metal discs under fingertips to enable the physical sensing of electromagnetic fields, and several internal compass implants designed to give a physical awareness of north and south magnetic poles.

But the biohacking movement is moving in from the fringe, with several tech start-ups arising over the past few years with an interest in developing a commercial body modification economy. Grindhouse Wetware, based on Pittsburgh, has been prominent in creating technology that augments the human body.

The company’s most prominent device is called the Northstar, which is an implant that it is hoped will have Bluetooth capabilities allowing the user to control their devices with simple hand movements. The first iteration of the device simply had an aesthetic function with LED lights under the user’s skin that mimic a form of bioluminescence. Future uses for the Northstar could see it interfacing with your smartphone, tracking biometric data, such as blood sugar, or acting as a controller for a variety of devices connected to the internet of things.

Hitting the big time

Transhumanism is moving inexorably into the mainstream as technological advances accelerate. Proponents advocate we dive head first into this brave new cybernetic world, while traditionalists grow increasingly nervous.

Regardless of one’s personal view there is undoubtedly an enormous number of people lining up to have that first brain/computer interface implanted into their head, or to genetically cue a set of specific characteristics for their baby. We live in exciting times that’s for sure … now excuse me while I re-watch Gattaca and hope it doesn’t turn into a documentary-like premonition of our future.

History Has Been Hacked

We know now that the elite are into big lies for mind control, and for sure history has been hacked too.


I am personally not sure if all of this information below is all totally accurate, but it’s 100% for sure worth knowing about, and delving into if you resonate with it. We need more people looking into this field of research.

Here are a few short trailers to watch that summarise how our history has been hacked.

They present that:

  • Homer’s Iliad – The Trojan War and 1st Crusade were the same event
  • Goths – were the biblical Gog/ Magog people and were actually Slavs
  • Tartars – the name of these people has been erased from history, although many ancient maps exist. After defeating them, the Romanov’s re-wrote Russian history
  • John’s Book of Revelation/ Apocalypse – according to the astronomical description in the biblical texts, this book had to be written in Sept/Oct 1486 AD
  • Dark Ages – this vacuum of time never existed. It was added to push back some historical events to make them more credible
  • Jesus was born in 1053 and died in 1086. It’s the same 33 years, just 1000+ years later in time
  • Egyptian/ Greek/ Roman ages – existed simultaneously
  • Mongolian Empire never existed. It was a Russian army called the Horde (Tartarians) These are the descendants of the Hyperboreans.

 

 

La Version De Cristo En La India…

Krishna de la India
Esto es basado en la historia, sea incorrecto o no …
El 28 de agosto, millones de indios celebraron el cumpleaños del Señor Krishna, que nació hace unos 3.000 años. La celebración principal comenzó a medianoche, y las actividades incluyen cantar, orar y ayunar. (La siguiente imagen muestra a los hindúes reuniéndose para el cumpleaños de Krishna en un templo en Katmandú, Nepal).

Las semejanzas entre el carácter cristiano y el Mesías Krishna de la India son centenares, particularmente cuando se consideran apócrifos los primeros textos cristianos que ahora se consideran apócrifos. Hay que señalar que una ortografía inglesa común anterior de Krishna era “Christna”, que revela su relación Con “Cristo”. También en bengalí, Krishna es reputado “Christos”, que es lo mismo que los griegos para “Cristo” y que los soldados de Alejandro Magno lo llaman Krishna. Cabe señalar además que, al igual que con Jesús, Buda y Osiris, muchas personas han creído y siguen creyendo en un Krishna histórico. Lo que sigue es una lista parcial de las correspondencias entre Jesús y Krishna:

* Krishna nació de la virgen Devaki (“Divina”) el 25 de diciembre.
* Su padre terrenal era un carpintero que estaba en la ciudad pagando impuestos mientras que Krishna nació.
* Su nacimiento fue señalado por una estrella en el este y asistido por ángeles y pastores, en cuyo momento se le presentaron con especias.
* Los anfitriones celestiales bailaron y cantaron en su nacimiento.
* Fue perseguido por un tirano que ordenó la matanza de miles de niños.
* Krishna fue ungido en la cabeza con aceite por una mujer que sanó.
* Se le representa como teniendo su pie en la cabeza de una serpiente.
* Él hizo milagros y maravillas, resucitando a los muertos y curando a los leprosos, a los sordos ya los ciegos.
* Krishna usó parábolas para enseñar a la gente acerca de la caridad y el amor, y “vivió pobre y amó a los pobres”
* Castigó al clero, acusándolos de “ambición e hipocresía … la tradición dice que cayó víctima de su venganza”.
* El “discípulo amado” de Krishna era Arjuna o Ar-jouan (Juan)
* Se transfiguró delante de sus discípulos.
* Él dio a sus discípulos la capacidad de hacer milagros.
Su camino estaba “sembrado de ramas”.
* En algunas tradiciones murió en un árbol o fue crucificado entre dos ladrones.
* Krishna fue asesinado alrededor de la edad de 30, y el sol oscureció a su muerte.
* Se levantó de la muerte y ascendió al cielo “a la vista de todos los hombres”.
* Fue representado en una cruz con agujeros de uñas en sus pies, así como tener un emblema de corazón en su ropa.
Krishna no es el “león de la tribu de Saki”.
* Fue llamado el “Dios Pastor” y considerado el “Redentor”, “Primogénito”, “Portador del Pecado”, “Libertador”, “Palabra Universal”.
“Fue considerado el” Hijo de Dios “y” Nuestro Señor y Salvador “, que vino a la Tierra para morir por la salvación del hombre.
* Era la segunda persona de la Trinidad.
* Sus discípulos supuestamente le otorgaron el título de “Jezeo”, o “Jezeo”, que significa “Esencia pura”.
* Krishna debe volver a juzgar a los muertos, cabalgando sobre un caballo blanco, y luchar con “El Príncipe del Mal”, que desolará la Tierra.
* La historia de Krishna como se registró en las antiguas leyendas y textos indúes

India’s Christ Version..

Krishna of India

This is base on history, wether its wrong or not…

On August 28, millions of Indians celebrated the birthday of Lord Krishna, who was born about 3,000 years ago.  The main celebration began at midnight, and activities include singing, praying, and fasting. (The next image  shows Hindus gathering for Krishna’s birthday at a temple in Kathmandu, Nepal.)

The similarities between the Christian character and the Indian Messiah Krishna number in the hundreds, particulary when the early Christian texts now considered apocryphal are factored in. It should be noted that a common earlier English spelling of Krishna was ” Christna,” which reveals its relation with “Christ.” Also in Bengali, Krishna is reputedy “Christos,” whish is the same as the Greeks for “Christ” and which the soldiers of Alexander The Great call it Krishna. It should be further noted that, as with Jesus, Buddha and Osiris, many people have believed and continue to believe in a historical Krishna. The following is a partial list of the correspondences between Jesus and Krishna:

*Krishna was born of the virgen Devaki (“Divine One”) on December 25th.

*His earthly father was a carpenter who was off in the city paying tax while Krishna was born.

*His birth was signaled by a star in the east and attended by angels and shepherds, at which time he was presented with spices.

*The heavenly hosts danced and sang at his birth.

*He was persecuted by a tyrant who ordered the slaughter of thousands of infants.

*Krishna was anointed on the head with oil by a woman whom he healed.

*He is depicted as having his foot on the head of a serpent.

*He worked miracles and wonders, rising the dead and healing the lepers, the deaf and the blind.

*Krishna used parables to teach the people about charity and love, and he “lived poor and he loved the poor,”

*He castigated the clergy, charging them with “ambition and hypocrisy… tradition says he fell victim to their vengeance.”

*Krishna’s​ “beloved disciple” was Arjuna or Ar-jouan (John)

*He was transfigured in front of his disciples.

*He gave his disciples the ability to work miracles.

His path was “strewn with branches.”

*In some traditions he died on a tree or was crucified between 2 thieves.

*Krishna was killed around the age of 30, and the sun darkened at his death.

*He rose from the death and ascended to heaven “in the sight of all men.”

*He was depicted on a cross with nail holes in his feet, as well as having a heart emblem on his clothing.

*Krishna isnthe “lion of the tribe of Saki.”

*He was called the “Shepherd God” and considered the “Redeemer,” “Firstborn,” “Sin-Bearer,” “Liberator,” “Universal Word.”

“He was deemed the “Son of God” and “Our Lord and Savior,” who came to Earth to die for man’s salvation.

*He was the second person of the Trinity.

*His disciples purportedly bestowed upon him the title “Jezeus,” or “Jezeus,” meaning “Pure Essence.”

*Krishna is to return to.judge the dead, riding on a white horse, and to do battle with “The Prince of Evil,” who will desolate the Earth.

*The story of Krishna as recorded in the ancient Indian legends and text.
