hahah, this reminds me about the smurfs. Acctually I don't think smurfs eat mushrooms, I think they are evolved mushrooms. Since they have no genders, and can't reproduce, they gather mushrooms wich grow into baby smurfs.

Whle I said that all the dieties are figments of a whole, I did mean that they are simultanously the same and separate. I understand that the absolute, the infinite must simultaneously be not absolute and not infinite-- in order to truly be infinite and absoulte. So the fact that the figure heads turn into eachother reflects my idea that they are part of the same thing. I dont really understand what you mean by we don't reflect god off our conception of ourself, though.

So if there is one candle that lights other candles-- it is like a branch that is cut from a tree that is grown into another tree... the two trees are the same life in a way.

If lord Brahma is the first created being, then the creator must not be a being. I believe that, I guess, Krishna is not a being in the way we think of a being... it transcends beingness and therefore has no beginning or end... Or like the Egyptian god Re who created himself.

Or did you mean that Lord Brahma is before Krishna? Is there not also Shiva, the destroyer. I heard that Christ, Lord Maitreya, Krishna, Messiah, Imam Mahdi and the Bodhisattva (Guatama Buddah's spirit?), are all the same thing. Although I heard that
Guatama Buddah met another Buddah in one of his past lives (like a thousand years before he became a buddah), and it was then that he vowed to become a Buddah himself. I'm wondering if the Buddah he met then was Krishna in Vrindavan.

I have acctually had the science of self realization book for about a year, but I have not yet read it :(

BTW, I really like that picture. Sometimes I see pictures that bring back past life memories and the plants and the hills in the background kindof do. It makes me imagine that I am walking up to the temple and I can see the glow of Krisna there.
