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


 


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)

The Gospel of Divine Love, Narada Bhakti Sutras -- Spiritual Awakening Radio Podcast

 

 


The Gospel of Divine Love, Narada Bhakti Sutras





I am happy today to share one of my favorite scriptures, the Narada Bhakti Sutras, as well as verses on this theme of love for the God of Love from Yogani Mataji, Swami Vyasanand, Baba Ram Singh, and from the mystic poetry of Sant Dariya Kabir. Blessed is the Eye Which is Permeated With Love! "God is Love; each soul is a drop from the Ocean of Love, and the Way back to God is also through Love." (Sant Kirpal Singh) -- James Bean, Spiritual Awakening Radio, The Sant Mat Satsang Podcast @ YouTube: https://youtu.be/KvGDdxee6DY


1. Now, therefore, we shall expound the religion of Divine Love.

2. That, truly, is of the nature of the supreme Love of God.

3. And in its own intrinsic nature, Divine Love is nothing less than the immortal bliss of freedom (Mukti) itself, which comes unsolicited by the grace of God and by self-sacrifice.

4. Gaining that, man realizes his perfection and divinity and becomes thoroughly contented.

6. Realizing that, man becomes intoxicated and fascinated, as it were, because he is completely immersed in the enjoyment of the Bliss of the Atman, the truest and highest self.

84. Whosoever amongst us believes in this auspicious Gospel of Narada and has faith in it, becomes a lover of God, and attains the highest Beatitude and Goal of life. (Narada Bhakti Sutras)

The word "Nara " means knowledge useful to humanity and "Da" means a giver, so Narada means the one who gives useful knowledge to mankind and guides humanity to the right path. Narada Muni is a divine sage from the Hindu tradition, who plays a prominent role in a number of the Puranic texts, especially in the Bhagavata Purana and in the Ramayana. Narada is portrayed as a traveling monk with the ability to visit distant worlds, planets, and lokas. He uses the Veena to accompany the singing of hymns, prayers and mantras as an act of devotion to God.
