PODCAST: Christian Vegetarian Series: Saint Jerome, And... The Ebionite Book of Acts (Clementine Homilies and Recognitions) -- Happy Veganuary from Spiritual Awakening Radio!






Today, another installment in the ongoing Christian Vegetarian Series. Did you know that Saint Jerome, Latin name: Eusebius Hieronymus, translator of the Vulgate Bible, was a vegetarian? Also we explore vegan & vegetarian views found in the Ebionite Book of Acts, also known as the Clementine Homilies and Recognitions, the largest surviving pro-vegetarian Christian scripture of antiquity. It's preserved in a treasure-trove of literature known as the Ante-Nicene Fathers,  composed before 325 AD.


"The consumption of animal flesh was unknown up until the great flood. But since the great flood, we have had animal flesh stuffed into our mouths. Jesus, the Christ, who appeared when the time was fulfilled, again joined the end to the beginning, so that we are now no longer allowed to eat animal flesh." (early church father Eusebius Hieronymus, also known as Saint Jerome)


With this emphatic declaration, Jerome makes Christianity, from his point of view, seem like a vegetarian religion, and that with the advent of Christ commenced a new spiritual epoch of compassion that includes vegetarianism. Amazing!

Valis, Philip K. Dick: "The third eye had to be re-opened if we were to get out of the maze."

 


Valis, Philip K. Dick: "The third eye had to be re-opened if we were to get out of the maze."






“The third eye had to be re-opened if we were to get out of the maze,” Mini said, “but since we no longer remembered that we had that ajna faculty, the eye of discernment, we could not go about seeking techniques for re-opening it. Something outside had to enter, something which we ourselves would be unable to build.” (Philip K. Dick, Valis)


In Sant Mat that outside force is the living master. "Sant Mat (the path and teachings as taught and practiced by Saints [Sant Satgurus]) delineates the path of union of soul with God... The tenth gate is also known as the sixth chakra, the third eye, bindu, the center located between the two eyebrows. This is the gateway through which we leave the gates of the sense organs and enter in the divine realms and finally become established in the soul." (Swami Santsevi Ji Maharaj)
