Trump to celebrate Diwali for the 3rd time in White House on October 24 -  BusinessToday

 

 

 

Both major festivals are based upon the LUNAR CALENDAR or more correctly stated, all three (3) of these festivals are based on the MOON. Also, all of these festivals do correlate one to another in several ways. For instance, [1] The Samhain Festival/HALLOWEEN, [2] the CRUCIFIXION/Passover Festival and [3] the DIWALI Festival all revolve around the month of OCTOBER. But due to the variation of the moon cycle, Passover and the Diwali festivals are also rolling holidays. But at one point in time, for many western countries, certain aspects of the Saturnalia Festival were divided up and therefore observed at different times during the months of October, November, December, and/or January. The ‘Death theme’ aspect of the Saturnalia festival remained to be observed during the month of October under the name of HALLOWEEN. However, as the Saturnalia in the month of December, it became aligned with the winter solstice and climaxed on December 17 and the human sacrifice aspect became hidden in some cultures nevertheless, it continued to be historically linked. Today too, we call the December festival of the Saturnalia CHRISTMAS of which would be like the Diwali festival in its’ description as a ‘Festival of Lights’. There are also other striking correlations of all three of these festivals nonetheless that all revolve around the First Coming and Resurrection of Jesus Christ and of which all stems from the very First Passover (and other feasts) instituted at the time of the Exodus. Like the Saturnalia festival, the onset of the Christmas holiday would be a ‘Thanksgiving parade’ in the month of November and held on the same fashion as the ancient Roman Saturnalia Triumphal March. And at the end of the parade would be Saint Nicholas [i.e., Santa Clause] who carries a bag of booty, and he would be adorned in the ancient traditional RED attire. Amazingly too, in the Netherlands, in Europe, along with Santa Claus in their parade would be ‘SWARTE PIET’ [i.e., St. Peter, Black Peter] a rendition of the ritualistic parade and sacrifice of Apostle Peter of which would be another direct rendition of the ancient Saturnalia festival. 

 

September 14 became the New Year instituted at the time of the First Passover in ancient Egypt for Israel, however due to the moon cycle and the leap days, again this Israelite New Year was a rolling holiday and was always moved to be observed during October 14 every 3rd year. So, for the Israelites, their ancient new year festivals occurred in either September or October. On the other hand, the Diwali festival’s rolling holiday occurs in either October or November and based upon a solar/lunar Calendar [lunisolar]. Likewise, the Habesha people in the Horn of Africa today also base their new year on a lunisolar Calendar developed in modern times and September became the fixed month for their new year. Nevertheless, all of these holidays are again defined by the month of OCTOBER included in their origins and carry a theme about death that revolves around the victimization of Blue/Black individuals. The Blue/Black or Black/Bronze antagonist in Diwali, NARAKASURA [ie. NARAK-ASURA, also becomes a direct connection to the Biblical ethnic and antagonistic man, Ashur Shem upon which, in turn, became associated with the ethnic Syrians and later in ancient times also became associated with the Original Hebrew Israelites, such as the Habesha people in the Horn of Africa, as the ancient Israelites were regarded in ancient times as being a distinct type of Syrian people as well due to their maternal origins. And just like the more ancient Saturnalia ritual observance, all of these festivals revolve around DUAL THEMES and of two opposing Blue/Black and Brown African-typed males. It becomes a conflict of good versus evil, however, throughout times, the roles have been interchangeable within certain civilizations of just who was the antagonist or the protagonist. Moreover, in our new age, the god Jupiter replaced one of these lesser gods of this Black-vs-Black dual and soon the royal purple kingly robe was replaced by the more supreme red or crimson robe (crimson; reddish-purple), and the god becomes exclusively white and therefore the representation of ‘the god Jupiter’.

[5] And thou shalt speak and say before the LORD thy God, 
A Syrian ready to perish was my father, and he went down into Egypt, 
and sojourned there with a few, and became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous: 
[6] And the Egyptians evil entreated us, and afflicted us, and laid upon us hard bondage: 
[7] And when we cried unto the LORD God of our fathers, the LORD heard our voice, 
and looked on our affliction, and our labour, and our oppression: [8] And the LORD 
brought us forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm, and 
with great terribleness, and with signs, and with wonders: … DEUTERONOMY 26:5-8.


Because Saturnalia/Halloween would be the earliest observance and can be traced back to the earliest of times under different and descriptive names, long before the time of the Exodus, then it would be important to understand the origins of the major dual themes of this festival. Although, in the earliest of times, it can be traced back to ancient Anatolia [Turkey; Asia Minor] and as it spread to other more ancient civilizations, such as in ancient Egypt and even to the farthest reaches of the world, however, it was in the country of Italy at the time of the Roman Empire that this festival became defined completely. Prior to the rise of the Roman Empire and before their temples were constructed, the earlier Etruscans also observed this major dual themed affair, and it was said that a shrine of Hercules was constructed to mark the actual area before the Roman temple was built. And at some point, at the setup of the Roman Empire, an idol was also constructed to represent the main sacrificial victim, the god SAETURN. As in ancient Egypt, this idol too identified the god as being of low estate, and means that, like the statue of Joseph the son of Israel in ancient Egypt of whom was constructed an idol, the god Saturn was made of wood or at times perhaps some type of bronze. So, therefore the god Set [Saeturn] was erected and put in the Roman temple basement until the annual festival:


Based on other cult images of Saturn, the statue of the god in the interior 
was veiled and equipped with a scythe. The image was made of wood 
and filled with oil. The legs were covered with bands of wool which were 
removed only on December 17, the day of the Saturnalia. On this feast 
day, slaves were allowed temporary and family members exchanged gifts. [4]

The Temple in Italy – the Temple of Mercury
So therefore, the temple of the god Mercury was where the idol of Saturn was kept and on the day of the Triumphal parade, the idol was taken out of the temple in a ceremonial method. The statue was adorned with the purple or red royal attire and then paraded through the streets. At the end of the parade, the god Saturn, was stripped of the royal robe, cords wrapped back around his feet to symbolize that he was captured by the god Mercury, and this would become a reflection of the dual aspect of this ritual. The god Mercury was always represented by a high official and would ride at the back of the parade ahead of the god Saturn and all the captives and booty, and he would ride in a four-horse drawn chariot. The official would be dressed in a red toga robe of which, ‘the color red’, was the symbolism for ‘the god Jupiter’. At the end of the parade, which ended at the temple of Jupiter located at the top of the Capitoline hill, there would be other forms of fanfare. However, at the end there would also be various forms of sacrifices as well as more celebrations, entertainment, games, and food in banquet halls. But again, at the end of the march, the idol of the god Saturn was then ceremonially stripped of the royal attire and taken back into the basement of the treasury temple to symbolize his capture and defeat and thereby remain there until the next years’ parade. 

 

The temple Mercury was also known as ‘the Treasury Temple’ and connects to the elements of the god Mercury as the god of trade [commerce, mercantile], speed and travel. The god Mercury would also be in direct correlation to the Biblical man named Magog, a Black/Brown man, who headed up the ancient trade movements of his time and known by many, many other descriptive names in the secular scripts and in the Bible as well. He becomes the ‘father of the Cholcians’ [i.e., Nicolaitans, St. Nicholas…]. Today though, this history has been suppressed and the temple of Mercury became known as the temple of Saturn, which again was located at the bottom of the Capitoline hill. Modern historians write about another temple Mercury supposedly built around the same time span of the temple Mercury/Saturn in the late 400s BC; however, it was not located at the bottom of the Capitoline hill rather, it was constructed about two miles eastwards in the area of the Circus Maximus. The area of the Circus Maximus [i.e., a horse track area] and other nearby sites was where the ancient triumphal processions would begin. So, the god Saturn would be taken out of the temple Saturn [the temple Mercury] and taken to the Circus Maximus area to begin the march. The processions would march towards the west and finally end at the top of the hill of Capitoline. Modern historians also report about another temple Mercury built in the late 400s B.C. southwards on the Aventine hill that may have been built over an earlier Etruscan temple. An Etruscan shrine in that area also marks that the famous idol ‘the god Mercury’ stems from the early Etruscans whose name for this god Mercury was ‘the god Hercules’ [i.e., Heracles]. However, the only temple that became part of the Saturnalia Festival and the triumphal parade of the god Saturn was the temple Mercury at the foot of the Capitoline hill. 


The Temple of Saturn … was an ancient Roman temple to 
the god Saturn, in what is now Rome, Italy. Its ruins stand 
at the foot of the Capitoline Hill at the western end of the 
Roman Forum. The original dedication of the temple is 
traditionally dated to 497 BC, [1] but ancient writers 
disagreed greatly about the history of this site [2]
Temple of Saturn - Wikipedia


Although this history has been extremely suppressed, earlier sources [hidden sources] perhaps still in old encyclopedias report that the temple Mercury did not become known as ‘the temple Saturn’ until around the A.D. 130s and became associated with the planet Saturn [i.e., the new moving star; the Star of Bethlehem] at this time. The planet Saturn was the last of the ‘ancient planets’ of which came into orbit in our solar system at the birth of Christ marked by NASA as ‘the Great Conjunction’ of the time of Herod the Great. However, it was also the fourth new year of the planet Saturn that culminated at the very time of the Second Jewish Revolt; the Bar Kokhba Revolt of which over 600,000 Jews were killed, and the residue were banned from Jerusalem, driven out, and forced into slavery. The Roman idol, ‘the god Saturn’ was NOT defined as ‘a god of trade and treasure, however, he was known as ‘the god of agriculture’. That temple Mercury [Saturn] at the bottom of the Capitoline hill was definitely the treasury house which aligns with description of the god Mercury. Under the name of ‘Mercury’, ‘Hercules’, ‘Heracles’, ‘Hermes’ ‘Nicholas’ and so many more names, this god was also well known as a ‘messenger god’ of speed and travel. Howbeit, one of the most revealing names for this idol in association with ‘death’ directly connects him to the day of the week ‘WEDNESDAY’ and ultimately link him to the Saturnalia festival and Halloween’s origins in the month of OCTOBER and that would be various forms of his name as ‘Wednesday’, ‘Woden’s Day’, ‘Oden’s Day’, etc. The name ‘HALLOWEEN’ carries two significant meanings in one; ‘Hallow-Owen’ [Hallowed Owen] and ‘Hallow’s Eve’ [Sacred Evening], therefore it further confirms that Halloween has been based on the moon, hence a dark nighttime ritual death theme headed up by the god Mercury [Owen].  Likewise, the French name for ‘Wednesday’ [‘WODEN’S DAG] which would be ‘MERCREDI’ and would be another confirmation about the purpose of this god Mercury, the god of Commerce:


Why is Odin called Wednesday?
While the Romans identified him with the god of Mercury, many 
have pointed out that his role would be more similar to the one 
of Jupiter. The word Wednesday derives from Odin’s Germanic 
name Woden (Wodnesdaeg, the day of Woden – for originally, 
Wednesday was dies Mercurii, the day of Mercury).

The Dual Themes of the Saturnalia Festival~HALLOWEEN
So, prior to the rise of the Roman Empire and long before the Etruscan period in Italy, the dual themes of Mercury versus Saturn etc. was observed much earlier in time in other name variations. However, the crucial aspect of these earlier dual themes, even up to and way beyond the Roman times, was that it was exclusively a conflict between two opposing Black males of which ‘the god Saturn’ was always cast as the doomed. It was not until after the rise of the Roman Empire that the hidden theme of the supreme ‘god Jupiter’ became manifested and became part of this public ritual of whom was linked to the symbolism of ‘the color red’.  But one of the earliest origins of the Saturnalia festival (Halloween) was in ancient Turkey (Anatolia). And like the Roman Empire includes in their festival, however, there was another dual theme that also occurred alongside of the male black-vs-black conflict and may have actually been the earlier theme, the Matriarchal aspect of the Saturnalia festival.  

 

So, in essence, the proper expression for the Saturnalia festival would actually be ‘the Saturnalia-Ops festival’ [i.e., Saturnalia-Ophalia] and this would be the complete description of two distinct dual rituals that occurred simultaneously and within the same month. And both dual themes carry an immense amount of history of dark hidden ritualistic practices of human sacrifice in various formats that has occurred in the earliest of times all over the world up to this day, as people migrated away from the central parts of the earth to the ends of this earth. And in ancient Egypt was one area where these dual themes became practiced and one particular observance was known as THE OPET FESTIVAL [i.e., Opet, Ops].

 

In Egypt, the Opet festival [i.e., Ophet, Tophet] was said to have been introduced into Egypt byway of the 18th Dynasty in the 1500s BC at which time it eventually became an enormous annual festival. It was initially headed up by the female pharaoh Hatshepsut of whom her descendants the Thutmosis’, had roots in the northeast world of Proto-Greeks and in the ancient Anatolian civilization of the Hurrians. The Opet festival began in June/July in the south of Upper Egypt. At the beginning of the festival the Theban triad of Amun, Mut and Khons were ceremoniously taken out of one temple and paraded through the avenue in a chariot headed up by the pharaoh. As the crowd looked on, the triad was put onto a royal barge and floated up the river and then paraded up to another temple. At the end of the parade, the pharaoh, who represented the god Amun, would go into the temple and certain people would be granted the opportunity to go into the temple to pay respect to the pharaoh. This Opet festival served its deceptive purpose for the 18th Dynasty because eventually, they outlawed the Theban religion, closed down their temples, drained the treasury, completely abandoned the south of Egypt, relocated to another area northwards in Central Egypt, had a new Capitol city built up and started a new religion to indoctrinate White Supremacy. From other newer areas, they also constructed roads to connect to the northern ports of the Mediterranean Sea to conduct trade with the White Greeks, Assyria, Troy and elsewhere to the north of Egypt and to the northeast world. However, this Tophet festival only revived a more age old dual black-on-black conflict that occurred in the earliest of times as well, in the Old Pyramid Age. The conflict of Osiris versus the Black Pig Seth. Amazingly, at this same time too, the Hyksos, who were in league with the Thutmosis’ rulers, began to revive the old god ‘Set’ to exploit for their own self gain. However, the Theban triad of Amun-re in Upper Egypt in the south came to later represent this early conflict and they, in essence became the conquered. On the other hand, the pharaohs of the 18th Dynasty walked into the temple of Thebes as the supreme Osiris of the Osiris-Isis-Horus triad of the north in Lower Egypt. They dominated the Nubian and Theban Egyptians for a time, until they rebelled. Cont. Part III, Conclusion

You put so much time and effort in your presentations!


I'm trying to figure out the meaning of this post, piece by piece.

 

yes I do, but I usually do it over a long period of time. Some of my notes that I finally use to write are collected years back.

First of all, what is the significance of the Obama family dressed in Hindu garb?

And what is the significance of the Trump photo?

 

 

Those pics are showing the past president in celebration of this DIWALI Festival.

This festival was instituted here in America back in 2005, I think [?].

It was instituted by former president Bush Jr.

So, again the significance is to show that it is celebrated in the White House.

That's just it. This is a federal holiday in certain states where schools are out, etc.

Speaking of which....man I LOVE Indian food.

There was this nice Indian buffet I was going to  B.C. (Before Covid) with a huge assortment of colorful and delicious food and beautiful brown and black skinned Indian women bouncing all around the place dressed in traditional clothes as well as business attire.
They stayed open as long as they could but eventually had to close their doors.

Man I miss that place.

I think this is definitely a holiday in your area! So you don't neef to feel cheated. In fact I believe the upcoming festival has already been advertised in your area.

 

As far as it being legal in certain states and not others-- I don't know how this can be as well. I have been trying to understand myself.

 

I do not understand politics very well. The way I understand it is federal holidays are defined a little different from national holidays. But again I am not sure.

It is a Hindu holiday.  Not federal.  😎

 @ProfD That is why I saved references years back. I thought it would be changed! No it was actually made a holiday here in Anerica! I am just not sure of the distinction between federal meaning not all states honor it.

 

Are you saying it's a Hindu holiday that our government allows schools to be out? 

 

I recently read it's also regarded as an international holiday. But in 2005 it was passed as law here in America. I will try to find those references.

The federal government does not observe it as a holiday.

 

At their discretion, a state, local jurisdiction, public or private business, etc., could  recognize it as a Hindu holiday and close schools or give employees time off. 😎
