Saturninus, Essenian Philosopher, Pupil of Ignatius of Antioch, the Master of Basilides, the Founder of Gnosticism: I lived and taught at Antioch from about A. D. 50 to A. D. 125. I am set down as a Gnostic; and this mistake has been made purposely, in order to conceal my real teachings. In reality I was an Essene, indoctrinated and taught by Ignatius of Antioch. At the time I lived and taught, the Essenes were the Christians, and were the only Christians that existed at Antioch. I met and conversed and exchanged philosophies with Apollonius of Tyana and Damis his disciple. We were Communists, and all that you find set down as the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, which should have been Apollonius were taught by me. They were obtained from Apollonius, who gave them to me in exchange for what I knew of the Gymnosophists, about A. D. 65. It was the revised statutes or mixture of Brahmanism and Buddhism, as established at the great council of Asoka in India [the Brahmanistic and Buddhistic council of Nice]; and it took place before my time about two hundred and fifty years.
All of my writings were not original, but simply a review of the doctrines of what might be termed, Platonism mixed with Brahmanism and Buddhism, which were in reality the foundations of Gnosticism. And the man who built up Gnosticism the year after my death, in A. D. 125 or 126, was Basilides the Egyptian. He was of my school, and he fell heir to all my writings; and he completed or laid the foundation of Gnosticism out of these writings. But Gnosticism was unknown to me. I was an Essene and once I visited Gallata and also Corinth; and at both places I found Apollonius teaching under the name of Paulus or Paul. Apollonius was teaching there and his discourses were always accompanied with spiritual phenomena that you often see amongst your modern mediums, such as magnetizing a handkerchief for the cure of the sick; and curing cases of paralysis by laying on of the hands. And at the time when he was in the glorified state, forms would appear like misty faces looking over his shoulders at the audience, similar to what the spirits are now trying to perform under the name of etherialization.
One time Apollonius met at the Temple of Diana in Ephesus by the priests of that temple, who asked him to hold forth his discourse, and he did. He taught there with such power that the priests grew angry for fear of losing their power. Because of that he had to flee from Ephesus in the night-time for fear of being murdered, or losing his life in some way.
Becoming dissatisfied with the slow progress of my teachings, and all Syria being in an uproar over the approaching War of the Jews, and many of my people being Jews, some of them left my society. Some returned to be honored. I found through them that the Jewish Rabbi Gamaliel had introduced my philosophies and of Apollonius, at Jerusalem; and that he had attributed them to the Jewish prophet Haggai, and he called it by a name similar to his, Hagiographa, which meant the sayings and doings of this Jewish prophet; which he should have said, they were given through him as a medium by the spirit of Apollonius. He did this in order to give the credit of this philosophy to the Jews. But the real truth in relation to all these writings and the myth story of Jesus of Nazareth, as now handed down to moderns, is the mixed systems of the Brahmanic, Buddhistic, Jewish, Essenian, and Gnostic teachings.
All these various systems taught that every four hundred years a philosopher arises who combines the highest agglomeration of intelligence of his day and generation, that is, his brain becomes more susceptible to spiritual things, and therefore he becomes a keener analyzer of them. Such as Buddha following Hermes, Zoroaster following Buddha, Plato following Zoroaster, and Apollonius following Plato, were such instances, which were recognized as starting new eras of religious thought and speculation.
It is strange to say, that of all the people living at that time, and down to the time of Eusebius and the final overthrow of these ancient religions by Christianity, that all the most valuable manuscripts bearing upon the ancient gods, heroes and philosophers, have to be searched for amongst those of the Greek Church and not the Roman. That is, that in Armenia and Russia you will be more likely find the remains of those manuscripts than you will among the Catholics. The Catholics have a few, but very few of them. The reason is, Pope after Pope destroyed them in their religious fanaticism; and what the Catholics do hold of them, are held by obscure individuals, and are very hard to find, although many of them are in the Vatican archives and their libraries.
I left a document translated from the Syriac-Cappadocian tongue that I translated verbally as it was given to me by Apollonius, at the time of my meeting with him at Antioch. It was translated in a mixture of Hebrew and Armenian language used at Antioch in those days. I wrote it as it fell from his lips, in the Syriac-Cappadocian language. Apollonius, through his superior spiritual insight, held direct communication in my presence with the spirit of Gautama Buddha. I was present when Apollonius was controlled by the spirit of Gautama Buddha. The spirit of Gautama went on to say, through his instrument [Apollonius], that all that he [Gautama] received was given through the spirit or the overshadowing of the spirit of Krishna. Which Krishna received it from Zoroaster the elder, and Zoroaster the elder said that he received it from Ormuzd, the light and Ahriman, a spirit who had lived, and was a king in Mesopotamia, two thousand years before his time, but that all their followers had corrupted their sayings, and claimed that they received them from God himself.
And, so there was a connection in the control of this Gautama Buddha with ancient spirits occupying 16,500 years. Buddha said this through Apollonius, and these systems of spirit teachings were all cases of originating religions in isolated civilizations. That is at the time those religions were taught, they had reached their height of grandeur, and then came on their decay, because the writings were plagiarized or made imperfect by barbarians, the priests of religions. And thus the same history of affairs, the destroying and mutilating the knowledge ran through all the ancient religions.
And now I must bear witness to the principal point of my coming here. I knew of no Jesus of Nazareth who lived at that time and was crucified on the cross, with the exception of one who was run through with Roman javelins for being a bandit, and I am certain that he knew nothing of philosophy. There were other men named Jesus, but they were not killed.
I commenced teaching at the age of twenty-one. I lived until A. D. 125. I met but once only the great Jewish historian Josephus and that was at Alexandria. He mentioned to me in the course of our conversation, which was altogether about spiritual things, he having been initiated with the Essenes, but said nothing about Jesus of Nazareth. He said he had learned that Gamaliel appropriated my philosophy and teachings, but that he was too proud a Jew to attribute them to a philosopher then living. So he plagiarized my philosophy in the name of Haggai. He said he did not think that it was doing me justice. I said I cared little how the truth survived, as long as it did survive, the then turbulent times.
The apostles of this Jesus I never met. If they had existed at all, I certainly should have met them. But Damis, the disciple of Apollonius, had seventy disciples, scattered through Greece, Syria, Armenia and the Roman provinces, teaching the life, sayings and doings of Gautama Buddha, as explained by Apollonius of Tyana. And the analogy between the teachings of Jesus, which should have been Apollonius and Buddha can be found to be very plain by reading the Buddhist book called the "Path of Virtue," but which has been so tampered with by Christians, that they have destroyed a great deal of its real purport, as it comes to you today. But if you were in India, and would obtain from a Buddhist, the real "Path of Virtue," and have it translated by men who are not afraid to translate it, you would find that the morality of Jesus is the morality of Buddha.
Robert Bellarmine, Catholic Cardinal: Death is the great avenue to truth. During my mortal life no one did more to maintain the power of the popes in temporal affairs than myself; and I was a most ardent Catholic. I lived in the Sixteenth century. This picture that you have on the wall is a perfect representation of Apollonius of Tyana. That is the Christian savior not Jesus.
I wrote against the encroachments of the temporal power upon the rights of the popes, by reason of which I lost my power and became what you may term an exile. After two hundred years in spirit life, I can use a part of the Mohammedan creed, and say: There is no God and no one is his prophet. By that I mean, that all mortal flesh may at times be imbued by the spirits; but that no particular spirit, when weighed in what may be termed the philosopher's scales, the scales of reason, has any advantage at the final reckoning, over other spirits.
Whatever your condition in mortal life may be, it is only a question of changing conditions and environments and you become a different person. While on the mortal plane you may be able to command success, but when changed to the spirit state, you will have to lean upon some other spirit for guidance to truth. I must say this, I knew that Christianity, in the first, second and third centuries, rested solely upon the doctrines of Apollonius of Tyana and Basilides the Gnostic, intermingled with Platonism.
Hormisdas, Roman Catholic Pontiff: Well, as Lord Bacon says I must come here, I suppose I must; but may the devil take you all. If you held the power for thirteen hundred years in the spirit world like I did, you would not feel like laying it down here tonight. If what I labored for and consummated, had been followed up by my successors, you would not have dared to send your bold, daring and vindictive spirits over here to fight us. I united the Greek and Roman Churches after they had once separated. And I lay all the folly of these infidels to the fools who afterwards broke that union.
Curse the truth! Damn the truth! I would lie to you, but I cannot. I am forced to tell the truth by two spirits who stand watch here, Apollonius of Tyana and Lord Bacon. I knew that Eusebius was a forger upon the writings of Apollonius of Tyana. I know that Eusebius was a scoundrel. I know I was a scoundrel myself. Oh, spirit of psychology! how great is thy power! I was one who helped to destroy Marcion's Epistles, known in my day as the Pauline Epistles, which were nothing more than copies of the writings of Apollonius of Tyana, under that name.
They were entitled, to the Galations, Thessalonians, Corinthians, and also Revelations. In my day Jesus Christ was worshipped in the form of a Lamb; and shortly after my time this symbol was altered by Constantius Pogonatus to the Cross, to conceal his astro-theological origin. Romanism is Paganism changed into Christianity. I knew this, and I helped to destroy many copies of the writings of Apollonius, and his disciple Damis, and also of the writings of Basilides, the Gnostic. I destroyed them for the worst of all reasons, namely to secure power. I knew at Rome, in my day, one Quintus Curtius, whose ancestors had known and conversed with Apollonius of Tyana when the latter was living, and therefore had positive evidence that Apollonius not only lived, but that he wrote the Christian Gospels; just as you have positive evidence that your George Washington lived.
Was either of you ever compelled to tell the truth while assembled thousands looked upon your disgrace? I came here cursing you, and cursing truth. I leave, blessing you for your patience and fraternal assurances.
John Fedenza, Saint Bonaventura: No Franciscan monk in the 12th century was more anxious than myself, to arrive at truth, but truth in some ages and some generations is a most dangerous thing to handle; and, therefore, I was authorized by certain ecclesiastical powers, at that time, to search into the contents of ancient manuscripts. The first manuscript that I examined, went to prove that Jesus was simply a character based upon the Paganistic and Gnostic ideas, each struggling for superiority and each trying to show something original, that the others had not. The doctrines of Apollonius, proper, were in the Syro-Cappadocian or Armenian tongue, and they are now in that shape for modern scholars to interpret. One of the principal depositories of those writings is to be found to the right of the entrance door of the Maronite Convent on Mount Lebanon, in Syria, and in front of the 6th apartment, and four feet from the bottom of the left of the niche in the shape of the cross. Those Maronite priests, will never allow those manuscripts to become known, unless they are compelled to.
Annius of Viterbo, Dominican Friar: I was selected by vote to an office which I fulfilled honestly and conscientiously, which was my death warrant. For that reason, I died a violent death in 1502 AD. All the manuscripts contained in the Colbertine Library were submitted to me, to see what I could obtain from them for the support of the Catholic Church. What were those manuscripts in the Colbertine Library that were submitted to me for translation? They were the remains of the Alexandrian Library, as first appropriated by Constantine the Great, and afterward in the sixth century by Caliph Omar.
Those manuscripts were all found on the doctrines of another spirit, who lived before Mizraim, and he commenced with this pungent assertion: No life can exist without heat. Heat is the governing principle of existence, and it comes from that glorious light, the sun, that lighteth every man that cometh into the world. And again these manuscripts say: As I find a decline of virtue in this world, I shall raise up one individual to reinstate it. What was the name of that ancient writer? As set down by Zoroaster it was Ormuzd, who was the deity of Zoroastrianism, the creator of the world, the source of light, and the embodiment of all good. Mizraim, is set down in history as the founder of the Egyptian government, who shall tell you how false are the religions.
After careful analysis of all these gods and god-systems, I found that at the Asoka, India, a Buddhistic council, the principal point upon which they were all formulated was about 280 BC. Out of these proceedings of the council, Ptolemy Philadelphus, some thirty-three years later had the council translate them by his distinguished librarian, Demetrius of Phalerus, who was the real collector of the Alexandrian Library.
At the court of an Indo-Assyrian king, Apollonius of Tyana blended the full and clear doctrines of the Brahmans and Buddhists with the books of the Platonic doctrines, both of the East and the West. Apollonius's teachings were a combination of the systems of all religions known to him, from the days of Mizraim, down to the time of Ptolemy Philadelphus, when it first took shape.
Plato received the impressions, and taught those doctrines through his medium-ship. I will explain. You must know that there are thousands of millions of spirits on the other side who have been taught the doctrines of Brahma and Buddha, and who existed in the past. These spirits in mass, overshadowed Plato, and produced in Greece a kind of reform on the Indian philosophies.
Now all these things that I here mention I published in seventeen books of antiquities; and the consequence was, I was poisoned by Caesar Borgia for doing so. He destroyed my life and confiscated my works because I proved too much truth for the place in which I was selected. I first took an oath that I would fulfill all the requirements asked of me, as I was considered one of the best linguists of my time. I performed the work faithfully. The result was that my life paid the forfeit.
My manuscripts of which I speak of are in the Colbertine Library, and they demonstrate and prove the facts to which I have referred. They were written in the Egyptian, Syrian, Samaritan and other ancient tongues; and there were some also in the Armenian and Cappadocian languages, copies of the older original writings of Mizraim. That is they purported to be so, how truly I do not know, but they were dated in the first Egyptian dynasty. These Egyptian manuscripts I translated by the aid of the key that I saw at the entrance of the ancient temple of Apollo at Rome. That inscription key was covered at one time with a thin coating of plaster, but had become bare in my time. The inscriptions were relating to Osiris and Isis of the Egyptians. When I interpreted the inscriptions, I used them in those manuscripts. And it appeared that it was the Egyptians who really built that temple for the Romans, instead of the Romans building it for themselves.
Mizraim, Chaldaic King of Egypt: I was born two thousand and two hundred years before your myth Jesus, in a town called Chion, in Chaldea, or 2200 BC. I was brought up to understand the Chaldean astrolabe [an ancient sextant]. I, with the same earnestness that you ask the people of today to believe in Jesus, asked the people then to believe in Baal. At the time I lived, the chief seat of the civilization of the world was at the junction of two rivers. These two rivers ran together and the intermediate country was known as Edna, Eden, or Edina. I knew nothing of Abraham; but I did know of Ibraham. "Ib" meaning the whole and "Brahm" the world in which we live.
At that time the following circumstance gave rise to what is called the confusion of tongues and the tower of Babel. There was a numerous colony that had gone out from Chaldea toward the opposite shore, toward Europe, where they acquired a different language from what we had and we could not understand each other correctly. With this they came back with the horrible story about how they had been confounded by a god, Typhon, which they described as the ruler of winds, waves, storms, the elements, etc. He was represented on the altars erected to him, as a huge snake, and was worshiped under that image.
I becoming dissatisfied with the state of things in Chaldea, moved southward and reached what was called Egypt. At that time I found that there had been four dynasties in Egypt, covering a period of nearly sixty-five hundred years. Upon reaching the Egyptian civilization, I found that there was a great invasion of that country by a king from the East; and to show you the confusion of modern chronology, I will say his name was Mahalaleel. In modern chronology, you will find him set down as the oldest man next to Methuselah, but he was simply a king in his day and an invader of Egypt. Although I was a stranger in the country and I had so large a concourse of people with me, somewhere about thirty thousand warriors, and a proportionate number of them unable to bear arms, and my warriors being very important to the Egyptians at that time, they offered me a position as a leader. As I conquered Mahalaleel, I was set down as the first ruler of Egypt, historians losing sight of the four preceding dynasties through the dissensions of men after my death.
You will find that all Egyptian history, following my time shows that what I have told you is the truth, and upon this ground, the god Baal of the Chaldeans was represented by a human head with the horns of a bull. The Egyptians afterwards substituted the god Apis. You can see the reason for confounding the two religions at a subsequent time. Originally Baal was represented as a snake with the head of a man; but I left the snake part off, and replaced the human head by that of the Egyptian ox; and after that time Baal was worshipped in that image. You will find this Baal-Apis in the article relating to the priests of Cybele, in the ceremony where they stand under a grating in white robes, while Apis or the sacred ox, has his throat cut and the blood descends upon the priests, baptizing them in the blood of the redeeming god. You will find this ceremony described in some of Havercamp's works; it is certainly in the works of some of those writers who comment upon the Scriptures.
After the performance of that ceremony, the blood-baptized priest was held to be sacred, and any persons who touched the hem of his garment would be cured of any disease they had. That is how they became healers of the sick. The priest after he came out from those conditions, was kept apart from the people, and no one was allowed to enter his apartment, except for some very important reason. He spoke for the oracles of Anubis and Iddo. Iddo was an Egyptian priest of one of the dynasties before my time, and set forth the idea of a great central power in the sun, out of which all life originated. This Iddo taught the same doctrines as those attributed to Confucius, Jesus, and all the rest of the gods, so far as morality was concerned. I found his teachings so deeply engrafted in the minds of the Egyptians and their religious system at the time, that I became identified with it, and I allowed this to stand, as one of the things it would not benefit me to trifle with.
Those blood-baptized priests were acting as Iddo, who was supposed to have been overshadowed by the divine spirit, and that whatever he said was the truth; and he was said to vanish, as you see in the Psalms, when he said Selah. I used the word Pollo, which afterwards became Apollo. It was the same as saying Amen or Ammon. This Apollo grew out of that system, and he became a god afterwards in the reign of Psammetticus. But the Chaldean, Egyptian, and all other priests in my day had, particularly the astrological signs of the Zodiac as part of their worship; and those signs were nine in number, not twelve as you have now. Each of these signs covered a period of what you call a month, which divided the year into nine parts instead of twelve. All these signs were indicated by the conjunction of certain stars, which enabled the priests to understand God's commands as given to us on the earth. By this I mean that one group of stars was made to designate each sign of the Zodiac, and these were used to explain certain things.
These changes in the position of the stars relative to the Sun were afterwards interpreted by persons called Augurs among the Romans, but in our day were called Celestiaie. These priests wanted to publish a great many facts and circumstances in my day, which I as a rational man thought was deceiving the people. So I forbade. All the religions taught before my time had for their beginning, the idea of man being placed in a garden of beauty, and surrounded with all the necessaries of life, and that there was one thing in that garden that he should not touch. But in the religious systems taught in my day, there was this one remarkable distinction. They did not say the woman was the betrayer, but man was represented to be so; and that he tempted the woman, and the woman yielding to his entreaties, brought forth all the trouble that flesh has been heir to since that time. That was taught as a fundamental principle, but there were very few who held to that doctrine. A majority were those who worshipped Apis, and followed his disciples, or prophets who were baptized in his blood. Anyone who underwent that ceremony was afterwards considered sacred. And even in my day that I lived 2200 years before the Christian time, this was so.
At the time I went to spirit life there was four or six dynasties preceding me, all of which were understood to have ruled Egypt. Every person was well acquainted with Christos of India, in those days, before my time. [before 2200 BC] Instead of taking the Lamb or first sign of the zodiac for their sacrificial Savior as the Christians did, they cut the throat of a bull and baptized the holy prophets in his blood.
I listened to those astronomical priests with the greatest devotion, and found them teaching the same thing that is cited in the Hebrew Scriptures about Elijah. These visions used to come through my organism, and I seemed to hear still small voices describing certain things to me, and I followed their directions. I was what you would call an Assyrian, but was really from Chaldea. I was both a priest and a lawgiver, that is I either preached or fought, according to the circumstances in which I was placed. The Zoroaster known in my day was the original or elder Zoroaster, who lived sixty-five hundred years before my time. This Zoroaster, through the letter O, the initial letter of Ormuzd, represented the great God I Am. The Egyptians afterwards adopted it as the emblem of eternity. As you can observe all religions are a copy of the previous religion, with things changed and added to each one.
Euxenus, a Pythagorean Philisopher: In the first century before the Christian era, Platonism and what was afterwards termed Gnosticism, were almost identically the same. Platonism or Gnosticism and Christianity were both scientific religions, founded on doctrines that were not historical. The doctrines taught by Apollonius of Tyana were of such a character that the Christians could not afford to let them be known, and they perished in the first crusade against the contents of the Alexandrian Library.
After the time that I became the teacher of Apollonius, I was authorized by license to teach by the emperor Augustus Caesar; but because I demonstrated that my philosophy was true, I was opposed by the priesthood. I challenged those priests to answer me, but this they did not attempt. My arguments were so profound that no priest dared to question their correctness. I commenced to teach twenty-five years before what is termed the Christian Era, and lived until A. D. 56. I never regretted that I had taught the seven Pythagorean principles, which meant the seven years of purification adopted in my day by all Pythagoreans. This I will explain to you.
The first year was analogous to the period of innocence and childhood, during which the philosophical aspirant tried to forget all previous ideas, impressions and conditions, by which his previous life had been attended; and to lose his individuality so as to commence a new life, like that of a newly born infant. [Comment from the New Testament: Unless you be like an innocent child, you shall never attain the kingdom of the Spirit of God who is within you.]
The second year was devoted to total silence, or voluntary abstinence from all acquisition of knowledge, except what the candidate could think out for himself. In other words, it was devoted to silent meditation.
In the third year he was enabled to begin the contemplation of the facts of his pre-existence and the after existence in their relations to his then existence, and to understand the true object of existence as a whole.
In the fourth year the aspirant to philosophical wisdom purified himself from every contamination of the use of food that the Sage Pythagoras had set down as unfit to be eaten.
In the fifth year having purged the mortal body, he began to sit, lie down, or stand as directed by his spirit attendants; in order to develop his medium-ship for the occurrence of spiritual phenomena through it.
In the sixth year the phenomena that occurred were divided, as you divide them into two classes, to wit: mental and physical. The purpose of this was to determine whether the most striking phenomena that occurred through each candidate were mental or physical.
In the seventh year test experiments were made to ascertain whether the aspirant was best qualified for the occurrence of the mental or physical class of phenomena; or whether competent for the occurrence of both classes combined.
Apollonius of Tyana was found to be remarkably qualified for the occurrence of both mental and physical phenomena through his medium-ship, and thus being fully developed for both classes of phenomena to an equal degree, he was authorized to act in both capacities, those of physical and mental medium-ship.
Thus duly initiated into the Pythagorean Order of Philosophy, Apollonius began to teach; but like most sensitives, he desired to teach his doctrines in seclusion. The teachings which first made Apollonius of Tyana known will be recounted by the spirit of King Phraotes of Taxila. He will tell you when and where it occurred, for these communications are given under the control of spirits who can and will explain everything so exactly that no learning can overthrow what is herein given.
Apollonius of Tyana was as I know from personal observation and knowledge, the Jesus of Nazareth of the Christians, and this was fully established by the subsequent writings of Saturninus of Antioch, Basilides of Alexandria, and Valentinus of the same city, all Gnostics, and those who followed them in the second and third centuries. Those writings, if in existence, will prove that Apollonius was the Jesus of the Christians in after times. I have no intention to prove to you that truth is greater than falsehood, for the time has come when truth must and will assert itself. What I have told you is true, and this will be established beyond all doubt by the evidence yet to be given, if not already so established. Oh! how I have longed for and desired the time to come when I could obtain the chance to testify that Apollonius of Tyana, whose memory and renown were killed through Eusebius at the Council of Nice, was the real Jesus of modern Christianity. I was Euxenus of Heracleia in Pontus.
August Wilhelm Von Schlegel, German Philologist and Orientalist: He who exposes errors must expect to be opposed by an army of fools. I know this was true in my day, and I know it must be true in yours. Born into the mortal life with a certain sense of the mystical, knowing nothing of the far past, I was fortunate to strike that line of intelligence, which was a great advantage to me, namely antiquity. I wrote my description of Ion on the same principle that Aeschylus wrote his Prometheus Bound. My principal business here tonight is to prove to you that the Tamil language of India is more ancient than the Sanskrit; and that while you now find it in Madras, Ceylon and Southern India, its outlines and structure prove it to be more ancient in India than the Sanskrit.
The principal belief of the Tamils was the divine nature of the male and female human organs of generation, the symbol of which was the phallus. They had their Trinity in the father, mother and child, which constituted their trinity in unity. These religious ideas can be traced in the Tamil language, traces of which are still found at the foot of the Himalayas in northern India, where the Tamil people dwelt before the Brahmans crossed into India from Thibet with their god I-brahm. Indeed this I-brahm was merely an eastern off-shoot of the Baal or Bel of the Chaldeans.
Bodhishormah, Buddhist Priest: As the Buddhistic religion, its writings, precepts and morals, have been given to modern readers, they have not been allowed to show the influence they exerted in forming what is called the Christian religion. Everything that would show this has been suppressed, first by the Christian fathers, Jerome, Chrysostom and Eusebius of Caesarea, and afterwards by the Christian writers who followed them. All these learned Christian commentators have done all they could do to veil the connection between Buddhism and Christianity. I am here today to say that the Penteteuch, Psalms and Proverbs of the Old Testament, and in the New Testament, from the Gospel of John to Revelations, were originally in the hands of the Buddhists, and were taught to the followers of that religion, in my day, about A. D. 340. But Christian authorities have set me down as about A. D. 495, in order to cover what I had of Buddhistic writings then extant, and to make them appear to be copies instead of authentic originals. [Siddhartha Gautama Buddha. 563?-483? BC, Indian mystic and founder of Buddhism, began preaching after achieving supreme enlightenment at the age of 35.]
I want to show that the religion of Buddha was not an offshoot of Brahmanism. It was derived from the teachings of Zoroaster in the first place, and the teachings of Osiris of the Egyptians in the second place. Buddhism was not of Indian origin. And now for the proofs of this. At the little village of Bang in Bombay, on the road from Guzerat to Malioa, are the five subterranean chambers which represent the five mountains of Buddha, and they are called the Panch Pandou. It was there that I taught in my time, although these chambers gave the date of Buddhism as nine hundred years before that time. The great trouble with Christian commentators is, that they want to bring all religions within the Mosaic period; and that biases their judgment and leads them astray.
The Panch Pandou and the temple of Boro Bado, as it was called by us, were the sources from which the civilizations of Mexico, Central America and Peru originated. For the same kind of crosses that are found in the Panch Pandou, and in the temple of Boro Bado, are identical with those to be found in the Aztec temples of Mexico, the temples of Central America, and the temples of Peru.
The three gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke were derived from and were part and parcel of the Ancient Gymnosophic religion which Apollonius received from Phraotes, king of Taxila. Apollonius was a medium for spirit control. I was also a medium among the Chinese. I taught amongst them at the foot of the celebrated Mount Sung. It was a region celebrated as a place of learning, also for learned hermits to congregate and die. I am satisfied that if you will follow the clues that I have given you, you will find that Sun-worship was identical with Buddhism; the latter only being a reformation of the former. These things have been ignored by modern archaeological scholars, because they would conflict with the teachings of Christianity.
The gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John have been modified from the original writings, that is, in the change of names and the scenes of the events related. The idea of Jesus is rather Egyptian than Indian.
Here is what happens. The most virtuous, holiest and purest man of that generation, became the object of veneration by the people and was held as an example for generations to follow. Therefore they deified that person and certain stars were dedicated to them. These celestial personifications were taught mystically by the priests to heighten the effect upon the minds of their ignorant followers.
The books from the Gospel of John, all the way to Revelations in the New Testament, were borrowed from the Buddhistic visions of Deva Bodhisatoua. In this respect, the Buddhists and Gymnosophists differ. The Buddhists, in my time were what you term Spiritualists. The Nirvana or heaven of rest as it was originally taught, meant simply a place where the spirit regained its power after leaving the mortal form, and after a longer or short time, having recuperated in strength, it passed on through those spheres of spirit existence that you Spiritualists talk of. On the other hand, the Gymnosophists were more of the perfectionist belief, and taught that the released spirit of the righteous went straight to God. That was the essential difference between the two teachings.
Plotina Pompela, Wife of Roman Emporor Trajan: I lived in a prominent way, a very short time after the death of Apollonius of Tyana. I saw him when I was a young girl, but never had any acquaintance with him; he dying before I reached womanhood. Of the Jews of my time, that is, in the reign of the emperor Trajan, the Pharisees and Essenes were the two principal sects. The Saducees did not believe in the resurrection. They were very few in number and exerted but little influence. It was believed throughout the Roman Empire that Apollonius of Tyana was the human representative of the god of Apollo on the earth; in fact was regarded as his son. There was no Jesus Christ known of in my day. There was a Christos Hesus, which was a combination of Indian and Scandinavian gods. This combination of gods was brought about by the slaves that had been brought from Asia and Northern Europe into Italy. There was a worship of this combined god under the designation of the Christos Hesunian religion.
I myself received divine honors after my death, and I was considered as being taken from the husband of my mortal life to be the companion of the god Apollo in the spirit life. I took a great interest in all classes and grades of Roman citizens; and did my best in all kindness for them. I had no prejudice against any religion. The religion of India was made to assume a different shape from that which ancient manuscripts set it forth to be. Among all the letters addressed to my husband, the emperor Trajan, up to the time of my death A. D. 128, relating to religious matters, I never saw any that did not relate to the religions of Christos Hesus or Apollonius.
In the letter of Pliny the Younger to the emperor Trajan, the letter was relating to the Essenes of Antioch, sent at the instance of Apollonius of Tyana and Ignatius of Antioch to the emperor. It was forwarded to Trajan from Pliny by the hands of one Paulus of Thessalonica. Paulus traveled into Bithynia and had an interview with him there. Pliny was the prefect of Bithynia at that time. Paulus was merely the messenger or bearer of the letter to Rome. But Pliny saw nothing wrong with the Essenes, and reported that they were quiet and inoffensive citizens.
There was no antagonism at that time between the Platonic and Eclectic philosophies. The Eclectic philosophy was an offshoot from the doctrines of the Gymnosophists, but they had gained but little headway in my day. The principal religion of that time was the worship of the ancient Grecian and Roman myths. Essenism was in almost all its practical features, communism; everything was held and enjoyed in common.
I want to dwell particularly on the Christos of India, as he was understood in my day. He was regarded as an incarnation of deity, and was worshipped as such. His religion had been brought through the intermediate countries to the Mediterranean Sea, and had become modified from the form it had, at Singapore, where Apollonius terminated his eastward journeying. As Apollonius moved westward from India, he came to be regarded as the ancient Christos. There were no miracles performed by him. What he did in the way of healing was through his medium-ship. But the greatest part of the change in the religion of Christos was made by Apollonius himself. The Revelation written by the hand of Apollonius on the isle of Patmos, was considered in my time as one of the greatest and most mystical manifestations of medium-ship, and was read as such by the learned. There was no reference to Jesus in that mystical communication. There was no reference to Jesus whatever, what you have in your book of Revelation.
I was a member of the mystics or secret inquirers into what you would call spiritual phenomena. We had our meetings or circles for that purpose. The emperor Trajan was not a member of the mystics, but he understood that such phenomena occurred. He was more of a materialist in his views. I leaned more to the spiritual and he more to the materialistic view of things; but as long as he lived I was never interfered with in my researches by him.
In the year A. D. 85, Apollonius taught at Rome under the name of Paulus or Paul. It was a well known fact in my days who he was. He received divine honors after his death, as the son of Apollo. In his biography he is represented to have been the incarnation of the god Proteus. That was simply the work of Philostratus who wanted to claim Apollonius as a Greek. In my time, when any man made his mark in the world, all Greek writers wanted to claim him as a Greek.
Although I had no personal acquaintance with Apollonius, I conversed with those who were acquainted with him, and who received all knowledge of him from Damis, his disciple. I also knew many Jews who were followers of Apollonius. They became his followers from what occurred through Apollonius when he was at Jerusalem. The account that they gave of his journey to that city, was precisely the same as the modern account of the same events, attributed to Jesus of Nazareth.
The Nazarites of my day were the same as your modern monks. They shaved their heads as the crowning act of their initiation. I never visited their settlements, but those of them who were sent to us, always had their heads shaven. They came from Gaza. The Nazarites of my time were the same in belief as the Unitarians of your day, that is they were the worshippers of one God, and did not acknowledge an intercessor. But they changed their views, subsequently, and united with the Gnostics, with whom they became identified. I think this will be made plain by sculptured inscriptions on the ruins of ancient Hierapolis. I think if the ruins of that ancient city could be properly explored, the truth of my communication can be established. If you will carefully examine the most ancient copies of the letter of Pliny to Trajan, you will find in what respects it has been changed or interpolated. The two most ancient copies of the letter of Pliny to Trajan are in the Vatican Library at Rome, and the Royal Library of Berlin.
If you know me, please don't be a Judas and betray me. Also if you value the planet earth, all mankind and you in it, surely you will not betray me.

Now you have the missing Key to the Sacred Knowledge! Although >>
In the beginning truth becomes annihilated, but the wounds which it receives from error are only on the surface. Whereas in the end, truth shall always triumph!
Becoming one of the Christs is not a spectator sport.
You need to be a doer.
