"Suns of God" Kudos, Q & A

I received the following email about my book Suns of God: Krishna, Buddha and Christ Unveiled, and I thought I'd pass it along, as well as answer the questions this kind fellow has asked.

Suns of God was composed over the period between the release of The Christ Conspiracy and fall 2004, when it was published. Its composition was interrupted by a string of personal tragedies and traumas, including the death of my mother, but I managed to complete it regardless of tremendous adversity.

As I had done with The Christ Conspiracy, I researched, wrote, edited, proofed, typeset, indexed and did the illustrations for Suns of God entirely by myself. The cover was created professionally based on a mockup I originally designed.

Hi Acharya:

I hope things are getting better for you.

I wanted to let you know that I have been reading Suns of Gods. It is absolutely amazing the amount of information you have compiled into this book.

I just finished the section of "The Historical Jesus." I was blown away by the segment. I wish I would have known these facts many years ago. I have to wonder what makes man cling to the belief that there ever was a Jesus with all the information that exists that proves the bible was the work of idiots trying to create a new religion.

I was taken back by the vast amount of knowledge you must possess to be able to have put a book like Suns of Gods together. How long did it take you to write this book? Did you have help from anyone or was this material from your reading and your schooling?

"I think your book should be provided to schools and colleges for students to be able to read and understand that much of greatest selling book ever sold is nothing but stories from men who started a killing machine. Perhaps they were the work of the devil!!"

I wanted to drop a line and let you know how much I have been enjoying your book. I am looking forward to reading your next book Christ in Egypt.

FA
Thank you, FA, for the kind words and kudos. FYI, we - yes, this time I've had help with the book - are putting the finishing touches on Christ in Egypt, and with any luck it will be available by the end of February. And once again, the completion of this book has been marked by adversity that has delayed its publication for months. At times it seems somebody doesn't want this astounding information to be put out there!

if you honestly think that krishna is a son of god, i have to question your actual research into this. have you even read the gita!? if krishna is a son of god, we're in REALLY big trouble!! don't you know he funded both sides of the war! and poor arjuna was thrust into this role of force fighting, mislead by his "god" when he knew better all along.

perhaps chirst, i could see (and no i'm not a christian), perhaps buddha, altho that's questionable, as i believe he was just a man who sought divine wisdom and was well accomplished at that. maybe there are others, but krishna? NEVER in a MILLION YEARS!!

You don't think Jesus is putting up a fight?

I think you have misunderstood my work, which you may wish to read.

My book demonstrates that these characters are solar myths. Hence, the phrase "suns of God," not "sons of God."

I will assume that this remark is tongue in cheek.

If Jesus is real, he can't be very powerful, if this is the best he can do, beating on a single female author of little means.

Meanwhile, 1.5 billion Muslims spread across the globe denying Christ to be the son of God. I don't see Jesus putting up any fight on that front. I guess they're right. (Sarcasm, irony.)

Thank you for your book! It was very enlightening. I have just finished reading Douglas Reed's "The Controversy of Zion" and wondered if you have read it,an if so,what your take is on the historical accuracy of same? His conclusions about Judaic history are a bit shocking and intriguing. It's difficult to believe that the book was written so long ago...and like your works, often times maligned. Thank you.

Whew Great to hear from you Acharya! I hope you are doing well! Well 2008 - 2009 seem to be apocalyptic years in true sense ... you are one ray of hope and sanity for us ... Looking forward for Christ in Egypt ...

As Lord Krishna says in the Gita

- "Paritraanaya Saadhunaam Vinasshayach Dushkritam, Dharma Sansthaapanaarthay Sambhaavaami yuge yuge" -

Whenever darkness and ignorance, destruction and ruin descends upon defenseless mortal humans, I will come to the rescue ye all (the upholders of faith) and establish the Dharma (Kingdom of Heaven) eon after eon after eon :)

I hope the author of the email will eventually write an Amazon review.

I agree! The study is a classic. I was hooked when you first posted excerpts in your Yahoo group backin 2004.

For every 1 FA out there there are a 1000 more readers who will not go to the effort to express their appreciation. Well done and blessing to you Acharya.

Hello, Acharya. I love your work. What I think most people fail to see is how the ancients viewed their surroundings. To those cultures, everything belonged to God(s). This is how the concept of "God's sun" came into being. Then, through the generations, legends were born out of stories that talked about heroes of God. One of these legends was "God's son" and his interactions with man. The makers of the legends left clues to the hidden meanings of their works. You have brought to light a lot of those hidden meanings.

I think that by your challenging the historical context of religions a lot of people misunderstand you. They think you have an "atheist agenda" or "evil intentions." It's as though by challenging their religion's teachings you are somehow trying to destroy their hope. I don't see you like this, though, and I think someone thinking like this is completely off base. You've taken a subject- religion- and you've done a lot of studying. I appreciate your efforts and find your work fascinating.

Thanks, Dave!

Your concern is not misplaced, as I have been VERY ill with what seems to be a lifelong issue that flared up with a vengeance. No amount of "supernutrition" was able to prevent it, apparently.

The fact that a friend of mine who led an oddly parallel life passed away on December 27th didn't help my frame of mind!

Some day I may speak of this time during a radio show. Perhaps my experience will help others.

In the meantime, through this tremendous adversity, I've been able to complete Christ in Egypt - it is now at the printer, and we are awaiting the proof! Hallelujah!

Dave said...

Maybe a Zapper is what you need. Did me a lot of good! It destroyed a ganglion cyst in about 10 days and I've felt more energy and mental acuity! In just a couple weeks.

BTW. are you going to start doing the thing w/ Robert W. Morgan again? I loved hearing your chirpy, happy voice!

Acharya, it's great to see you posting again -- welcome back. I'm sorry to hear about your illness and the loss of your friend, but am thrilled to hear you are moving forward on your new book.

A religious guy tried to save my soul in the parking lot the other day. I just wonder if he really cares about me or if he's trying to get another notch in his heavenly bedpost. This entire religious-driven world is crazy.

I'm about halfway through your book, Suns of God, and being visual, decided to seek out an online tool illustrating the migration of man through gene mapping. Perhaps in your future publications you will offer visual aides as they are very helpful. I look forward to your newest book and am grateful to share in your knowledge.

Acharya S said...

Thanks! I'd be interested in what you've come up with in your quest to find a migration map based on gene mapping.

I do include "visual aides" in the form of illustrations at least.

Unfortunately, I am still ill, and it's not easy to put together anything at this point. Getting Christ in Egypt to print was a real challenge.

My apologies, I should have provided a link in my first post. This one may be a bit outdated but I find it complimentary to your book. I'm sure there are others.
