Krishna and His many incarnations of the Original Person
of which Jesus Christ is also one.

The personal of the vedic scriptures is laid down in the so-called purânas. These are the stories that always have been told to make the philosophy of yoga and self-realization accessible and palatable. Lord Krishna is the one who said "I am the time" three times in the Bhagavad Gîtâ. Thus relating to time is relating to Him. The books available from this site are all authentic translations by Anand Aadhar, a psychologist who studied under different guru's and was initiated in India. He now has an independent yoga practice named Aadhar Yoga. From him we offer first of all the famous Bhagavad Gîtâ and secondly the Bhâgavata Purâna, the Krishna-bible, also called the S'rîmad Bhâgavatam. In the first book Krishna explains the basic philosophy of yoga in about 700 verses. As such it is not really a story of happenings but a lecture in 18 chapters on the essence of the yoga-system. In the second book also called 'The Story of the Fortunate One', one is step by step through different books led to the story of the life of Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead who settled the basic order of love for our modern age called the Age of Quarrel or also the Iron Age. On top of these these two books there is of Anand Aadhar a readable translation of 'The thread of Yoga': the essence of uniting one's consciousness in the notion yoga as summarized by Patañjali in his Yoga-sûtra's.

Time and the Vedic Scriptures

What does the word religion mean? The Oxford dictionary tells us that it is the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, esp. a personal God or gods. It concerns a set of beliefs, values, and practices based on the teachings of a certain spiritual leader or Lordship. In the broadest sense it pertains to a cause, principle, or activity pursued with zeal or conscientious devotion. Lastly it is a life or condition of a person in a religious order.

We know from the vedic scriptures the superhuman controlling power as mentioned in the dictionary to be the Time (see time-quotes). The Lord or Godhead is, operating from the beyond or right in front of us, just the messenger of or chastiser for the sake of the morality of keeping the soul properly associated with Time. In respect with the Time of the Lord is one of God and thus is respect for His time not just an impersonal but also a personal matter. In other words: if we are proper with the impersonal of Time, we will automatically be personally correct by the grace of His identification with that time (thus capitalized as Time). We in our religions worship the Lord who gave His life to be the order of time of regular worship that carries His grace. Other types of time respect do not carry His grace according the purâna. The book states that deceitful religiosity, viz. religiousness with an ulterior motive, or an order of time that is motivated and manipulated for the money, is rejected as being offensive to the divine interest (S.B. 1.1.2). The vedic scripture the Bhagavad Gîtâ - veda means knowledge, thus the scripture of Knowledge -, explicitly states that such worship of 'other gods' - read: forms of time-respect - is, even though confirmed as a form of devotion, simply wrong (B.G. 9.23). The respect of Time must be according His nature, in fact your own nature shared with Him or your and His dharma, or else one runs into danger being alienated from His will or creation (B.G. 3.35). From this we may conclude that the effort to control the time, outside of His will, outside of the nature of our own planet and position in the sky, is a fundamental source of discord between not only the religions but all associations of man, political, sportive or otherwise, that thus conceived, are to be considered deceitful and of a false ego. From this notion does half the world - scripturally correct though - reject all religion while the other half of mankind by the latter again is rejected for its other types of association being profane and possibly heretical or materialistic. Thus seen would all human association be wrong in a democratic hell of indecision. The Gîtâ (18.66) on top of that confirms this negative attitude in saying: 'abandon all forms of religion (and other association) and surrender to Me only'. Any human accord of time not in tune with His nature is thus, fundamentally seen, nothing but an obstruction as a selfish arbitrary paradigm relative of value that, confounding, can be exchanged for another, and any religion about that power of conditioning is thus factually wrong vedically speaking. Only He and what is His, the divine ordinance and the person thereof, is, vedically to be considered correct. Since He identifies with the natural manifestation of time (see again time-quotes) is thus the true of religion in the end a scientific affair, since with Him one is scientifically bona fide or of a valid respect for the impersonal order of His Time. He is also thus the Godhead or original scientist of the scientists. Or put in simple civil language: don't mess with the time of nature or you're in illusion. Thus is the thesis held by some that science and religion are incommensurable refuted. Science tells the numbers free from illusion and religion, faithful to the vedic command, tells what to do with it once you get them right, viz. once you are valid or free from illusion in the more personal reckoning.

'Draupadî humiliated' -Modern time humuliates mother nature. - by R.R. Varma

When Pope Leo XIII, in Immortale Dei, 1885, said that "The equal toleration of all religions ... is the same thing as atheism", he in fact said that religion or theism is the intolerance of other respects of time, and that is confirmed by the vedic view. The problem though is that most religions nowadays have fallen in their factually abiding by human and not by divine or scripturally defined concepts of time in knowing the politically set standard time and the commercially set linear weeks. So, not to throw away the child with the bathing water, must the religions of the world all learn to follow to the original, scripturally defined, order of Time and, thus purifying, restore their stature as personalistic sciences in stead of being political philosophies of deceit and fraud that, messing with numbers, end up in materialistic impersonalism and voidism. We can't have religions that in a political, unholy defense of their own order of time, go against civil rights that defend the freedom of association and religion. That fundamentalist option is unwanted democratically. The exclusivist egotistical options of the politicized religions must be treated to their own practice: with denial as for their offenses with the Time. All religions will have to purify their time-respect to be able to coexist peacefully and to continue existing on themselves: Islam mustn't follow standard time and timezones, Christianity must not act contrary in doing it on earth different as it is in the sky or 'heaven' and Hindus can't afford to manage the state with clocks and calendars that deviate from the light of the sun and the moon that would be their Lord in the Bhagavad Gîtâ. That conceit with ulterior motives must be over. Standardtime is something for railroads, the telephone company and broadcasting companies. It is pragmatical and economical. Religiously though it must be condemned. Let the religion be the example that is to the principle and scientific at the original time and let politics and trade be the watering down of that wine with standard-time manipulations that are known to be dangerous and alienating from the personal relevance vedically speaking.

From etymology is, according to Cicero, the word religion derived from relegare, re- "again" and legere "to read" and thus the word would mean "go through again, read again,". Therefore is it essential to any religion to re-read its scriptures and so do we, following this introduction, introduce the scriptures humanity started with: the most basic vedic ones. One evidently forgets the time of nature and God (in repression of the 'Father') as one working for ulterior purposes corrupts in degraded forms of culture and thus must that truth be remembered. Also does the word in popular etymology mean 'to reconnect' or 'to restore the bond'. It is necessary in association with other devotees to return to the Book of Books in order to celebrate its truth and thus restore and reconnect to its divinity. Considering the above mentioned that can never happen with standard time without becoming an hypocrite and cheater doing damage to the credibility and livability of the religious claim in fostering sectarianism and fundamentalist exclusivism. In fact is all religion abiding by standard time, as said, wrong according the Gîtâ and must it, that time-practice, be abandoned. This is the vedic purport: strictly speaking is Judaism, unless the Messiah is respected, no religion at all, but only a historical form of attachment to a speculative and inconsistent notion of God, since it is not clear who the ultimate religious leader is or what the spiritual kernel of purity is, and thus what the integrity and authority of the approach would be (should we kill for a 'promised land' or shouldn't we kill at all?) . With Jesus then as the Messiah, the King of Heaven, we have reached integrity with the jewish claim of God but have we not found the exact meaning of what Christ called doing it on earth as it is in heaven, all too materialistic being indifferent about God's order of time. Islam corrected that passionately condemning the Jews while propounding the times for prayer and fasting, but couldn't determine the right time themselves for the religious gatherings in the mosque in positioning the culture in linear weeks from the beginning and, even lower, managing their affairs by standard time nowadays, so that their linear Fridays and times of work are not of Allah in fact, nor being pure to the moon nor to the sun as Mohammed demanded. Thus fallen with passionate Islam disobedient to itself and their sometimes outright and warmongering, projective hatred against the jewish error and the christian shortcoming of not finding the father of Time by them called Allah, had we, after the fall of catholic Rome that abolished its own monasterial order of time in 1582 (the julian order that was only wrong in leaping), the philosophy of a rationalist and empiricist enlightenment. That philosophy, though scientifically successful, itself came to a bloody fall in the ulterior motives of a political opposition going for worldly gain with debilitating wars of horrid regimes worldwide in the centuries following. With the enlightenment of western science the religion was in correct reform indeed abandoned, but the Lord of the natural sciences wasn't found, and thus turned democracy out to be a failure of quantitative fixations running into the dictatures that fought for supremacy in a hell of modern time disarray with the natural sun and moon. Modern time proved a difficult time indeed and so it, beginning the 21th century, still is. The modern sense of the word religion as "recognition of, obedience to, and worship of a higher, unseen power" that was from 1535, turned after the gregorian time-reform into a mechanized religion in the sense of "scrupulous and exact" as recorded from 1599 (see etymological dictionary).

Thus is religion in popular etymology among the later classical and many other modern writers connected with religare in the sense of "to bind fast" as a notion of "placing an obligation on," or "bond between humans and gods". And that bond was originally described by Einstein (1879-1955) in Science, Philosophy and Religion (1941) as necessary in his saying: 'Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind'. But having turned into politics as in the to Bertrand Russell 1872-1970 attributed saying that: 'Religion may in most of its forms be defined as the belief that the gods are on the side of the government', must the concept of religion be drawn out of the political sphere and be restored to its authentic purity and stature of being religious in respecting the natural local environment, people included. And that must be done by means of the exclusive but broadminded vedic wisdom that critically defends the personal selfrealization of enlightenment and liberation in service of and association with God and the Time, as it should have been, and as it by all of us, world citizens, always has been envisioned. After all does the dutch word for religion 'godsdienst' simply mean being of service to God and not, also commemorating this writer, to a guy or system in between, and that is that. Only then do we have an order that can be called truly religious.


The vedic classics:

For the sake of clarity and loyalty the present popular versions of the Bhagavad Gîtâ (counting five on the Internet when the translator began) have been studied. There has been concluded to a concatenated, readable version of filognosy: The Bhagavad Gîtâ of Order (also read out in Audio): a translation as close to the original Sanskrit as possible with no literary pretenses. The book, constituting a serious work of personalist philosophy, is the sermon of Lord Krishna on the battlefield of Kuruksetra just before the great war of the Mahabharat. Its title means the song of the Lord. It describes the ins and outs of three basic kinds of yoga: the yoga of work, the yoga of devotion and the yoga of spiritual knowledge. It offers word-for-word-translations, the preceding translation and links to the other versions on the internet and the Sanskrit dictionary, so that each can retrace this translation back to its original source.


A Song of Fortune - A modern Gîtâ: Gnosis is the spiritual knowledge of Christianity which not only connects all Christians, but also all others who believe in an ideal spirit. Therefore is, concerning this true mystery, in this modern version of the Bhagavad Gîtâ the knowledge of finding liberation in the spirit called filognosy, the love for the gnosis, the love to be knowledgeable in spiritual matters. It is simply so that we without filognosy are not human, because we essentially are homo sapiens, or man by the love of our spiritual wisdom. Even though this book for the rest contains not a single word not found in the dictionary of English, except for the mantra AUM and the footnotes explaining to the source, is it a translation faithful to the original text and purport. Sanskrit names were converted to western equivalents and the scene of the original battlefield was transposed to a modern one of a political campaign. The result is a Song of Fortune accessible to any modern man contending with the burden of modern politics and postmodern cynicism.

Uddhava Gîtâ (e-book pdf): Next to the Bhagavad Gîtâ there is a second talk of Krishna in which He extensively reports about His science and nature. The second time He spoke His mind to His nephew, great friend and devotee Uddhava, just before Krishna left the earth. This Gîtâ, part of the masterly frame story the Bhâgavata Purâna - the so-called  S'rîmad Bhâgavatam - is of a different tone. While He in the Bhagavad Gîtâ admonishes Arjuna to fight and perform his duty as a warrior, Krishna in this talk advises Uddhava on how to serve Him with devotion and find liberation when He Himself is no longer physically present on earth. The story has a more personal ring, is more narrative with examples and dilates a bit more, even though sometimes the same or likewise verses are encountered. The story is therefore easier to read and less abstract.

In the year 2000 was started with the concatenation of the, already translated, story of Krishna, the S'rîmad Bhâgavatam (the Bhâgavata Purâna) on the Internet (18000 verses in twelve sections called Canto's). This book contains the essence of the vedic knowledge and tells the complete story of the life and times, the appearance and disappearance of Lord Krishna, the Lord of Yoga and his other appearances and expansions. For that reason it received the subtitle ''The Story of the Fortunate One'. The book could be called the authentic 'Krishna-bible'. In this version of the story the effort has been made at the one hand to make it a readable but verse to verse and word to word faithful story in the form of a running narrative, while at the other hand the original translations of the preceding version and the Sanskrit have been added, so that anyone can see what has been done with the text. There is a separate pdf for the tenth Canto, the life of Sri Krishna tited The Summum Bonum.


As yet only in Dutch there is a study to the culture of devotion, the philosopy and the music of Vaishnavism, the tradition of the Vishnu-monks who took the Bhiagavatam to the West. It is a book of about 400 pages presenting a comment on the first four chapters of the Bhagavad Gita. Not speaking Dutch it can be appreciated for its pictures and music-files of the songs of the âcâryas. The English versions of these songs can be found at the music page of For the Gîtâ in question, see above. The book is called: Krishna en de Zingende Filosoof (Krishna and the Singing Philosopher).


The Yogasûtras of Patañjali are a classical concept. They constitute the backbone of the discipline of yoga: the science of uniting one's consciousness. There are many interpretations though of this analytical masterpiece of the incarnation of Âdi-S'esha who is Patañjali. Patanjali is the first expansion of the ego of Vishnu in hindu mythology. This condensed work, this summary so to say, about the discipline of connecting oneself with the soul, thus forms the ego of yoga, The different existing interpretations all together plead for this text the same way as the music of J. S. Bach is so excellent because it cannot be spoilt by interpretation. This literary-philosophical monument from the indian realm is here represented from the perspective of this site: the time, the ether, and gross matter are all equally fundamental expressions of the divine of nature and thus is the yoga actually the most concrete of all sciences around. For it relates directly to these fundamental absolute truths when it offers us the discipline to live with them. The yoga turning away from time, space and matter does, meditating on it, land right in the middle of it as the one and only correct vision upon it, as the only right consciousness of unifying therewith, ... of the natural order of the consciousness of time therewith.

* About the pictures: The first picture above concerns Draupadî, standing for the purity of the vedic religion, who as the wife of the Pândavas is undressed in public by their malignant nephews as a prelude to the war of Kurukshetra where the ancient glory of the vedic culture came to a stop and the 'Kali ' or iron' age of chronic political discord began. Krishna from the beyond provides new cloth to preclude her embarrasment. The second picture is called 'Religion helped by Spain' (by Tiziano), where also a naked religion is pictured embarrassed about the new times of heretical modernity, this time helped by the state of Spain also offering a fabric for understanding.
