What do Krishna, Buddha and Christ have in common?

Picking up where the bestselling and controversial The Christ Conspiracy leaves off, Suns of God leads the reader through an electrifying exploration of the origin and meaning of the world's religions and popular gods. Over the past several centuries, the Big Three spiritual leaders have been the Lords Christ, Krishna and Buddha, whose stories and teachings are curiously and confoundingly similar to each other. The tale of a miraculously born redeemer who overcomes heroic challenges, teaches ethics and morality, performs marvels and wonders, acquires disciples and is famed far and wide, to be persecuted, killed and reborn, is not unique but a global phenomenon recurring in a wide variety of cultures long before the Christian era.

Are Krishna, Buddha and Christ "real people" or myths?

These godmen were not "historical" people who all "walked the earth" but mythical characters of the famous "mysteries." A major element of the secret, international brotherhood, these mysteries extend back thousands of years and are found worldwide, reflecting an ancient tradition steeped in awe and intrigue. The reasons for this religious development are unveiled in this in-depth analysis containing fascinating and original research based on evidence both modern and ancient, captivating information kept secret and hidden for ages!

"Suns of God may be the most complete review of the history of religion ever composed in a single volume." 

Suns of God contains 595 pages, including an extensive index and bibliography citing over 250 books and articles. It also has 46 pages of illustrations, which comprise over 100 separate images.

Why were so many ancient gods born on December 25th, the winter solstice?

God SunThe December 25th birthday of the sun god is a common story worldwide, dating back at least 12,000 years, as reflected in winter solstice scenes recorded in caves. Around the world beginning thousands of years ago, people have celebrated the birth of the god "Sol" (Sun) to the "Queen of Heaven," the "Celestial Virgin." The winter solstice has been celebrated in many places, from China to the Americas.

Ancient Greeks celebrated the birthday of Hercules and Dionysus on this date of December 25th. The "Christmas" festival was celebrated at Athens and was called "the Lenaea," during which time, apparently, "the death and rebirth of the harvest infant Dionysus were similarly dramatized." This Lenaea festival is depicted in an Aurignacian cave painting in Spain (34,000-23,000 Before Present), with a "young Dionysus with huge genitals," standing naked in the middle of "nine dancing women." The Romans celebrated the famed festival of "Saturnalia" at this time.

The Greco-Syrian sun god Adonis was also born on December 25th, a festival "spoken of by Tertullian, Jerome, and other Fathers of the Church, who inform us that the ceremonies took place in a cave, and that the cave in which they celebrated his mysteries in Bethlehem, was that in which Christ Jesus was born."

What's with all the "Virgin" Mothers of Gods and Heroes?

Mother Isis and Child

The list of pre-Christian gods, heroes, kings and queens who were said to have been "born of a virgin" or miraculously born includes the following:

  • Krishna
  • Buddha
  • Egyptian gods Ra and Apis
  • Egyptian queen Hetshepsut
  • Pharoah Amenophis III
  • Persian "prophet" Zoroaster
  • Melchizedek, biblical High Priest and King of Salem
  • Persian king Cyrus
  • Plato, "the divine" and "son of Apollo"
  • Julius Caesar
  • Apollonius of Tyana, Greek sage
  • Taliesin, Merlin and Llew Llaw of the British Isles
  • Chinese philosophers Fohi and Lao-Kium

Buddha and Jesus--Are They the Same?

  • Buddha's virgin mother, Maya, was impregnated by the "Holy Spirit," while a "heavenly messenger" informed her that she would bear "a son of the highest kings."
  • Buddha was said to have had five favorite disciples who left their former teacher to follow him, just as was Jesus, whose initial five disciples left John the Baptist to follow him.
  • Buddha and the 12 disciplesBuddha is further portrayed as having 12 disciples, the same as Jesus.
  • Buddha is also depicted as speaking with "two buddhas who had preceded him," a motif reminiscent of Jesus conversing with Moses and Elijah.
  • While Buddha fasts and prays in solitude in the desert, he is tempted by the Prince of Darkness, Mara, whose overtures of wealth and glory the sage resists.
  • Like Jesus, Buddha is portrayed as walking on water, while one of Buddha's disciples also is able to walk on water at his instruction.
  • Like Jesus, Buddha exhorts his disciples to "hide their good deeds, and confess their sins before the world." Furthermore, Buddha is portrayed as administering baptism for the remission of "sin."
  • Buddha's teachings embraced the brotherhood of men, the giving of charity to all, including adversaries, and "pity or love for one's neighbor."
  • Buddha was called "the Lion of the Tribe of Sakya, the King of Righteousness, the Great Physician, the God among Gods, the Only Begotten, the Word, the All-wise, the Way, the Truth, the Life, the Intercessor, the Prince of Peace, the Good Shepherd, the Light of the World, the Anointed, the Christ, the Messiah, the Saviour of the World, the Way of Life and Immortality."

Why are so many stories, including the Transfiguration, the Descent into Hell and the Ascension, found in the myths of other gods besides Jesus?

Did you know that the Catholic Church has admitted for centuries that there are important similarities between Buddhism and Christianity?

In its article on "Buddhism," the Catholic Church's Encyclopedia outlines some of the similarities between the Buddhist and Catholic religions, but it claims that Catholicism was first and that the Buddhist correlations are "accretions" copied from the Christian faith!

  • The Tibetan Buddhist religion has a "Pope" or "infallible head" called the Dalai Lama
  • There are "grades of clergy corresponding to bishop and priest"
  • The Buddhist religion includes "the cross, mitre, dalmatic, cope, censer, holy water, etc."

One of the world's leading mythologists, bestselling author Barbara Walker, had the following to say about Suns of God:

"I received your Suns of God. What a magnificent work! I do wish you had a major publisher who would promote it as The Da Vinci Code was promoted, to convince the world about the true fishiness of Christian mythology. But of course Dan Brown threw in some action-suspense-murder stuff, which is apparently what sells books these days, and his scholarship was nowhere near the quality of yours.

"You deserve to be recognized as a leading researcher and an expert in the field of comparative mythology, on a par with James Frazer or Robert Graves--indeed, superior to those forerunners in the frankness of your conclusions and the volume of your evidence.

"Seldom have I read a book that so delighted me, and had me nodding in agreement on every page. It is truly wonderful. It gives me hope that some day, maybe, the civilized world may grow out of its superstitious adolescence."

Barbara Walker
Women's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets, Women's Dictionary of Symbols and Sacred Objects

"What a magnificent work! Seldom have I read a book that so delighted me, and had me nodding in agreement on every page. It is truly wonderful." Barbara Walker, The Women's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets

"Acharya has, in Suns of God, compiled an astonishing amount of data about both saviors, most of which one will never run across in the typical surveys of Hinduism and Buddhism that we pat ourselves on the back for reading." Dr. Robert M. Price, The Pre-Nicene New Testament

"In addition to presenting the troubling history of religious wars in an easily followed narrative, Acharya goes a step further, explaining as only she can how a once-simplistic idea has been carried into our modern world with terrible and nearly unimaginable results." Dr. W. Sumner Davis, Fellow, Royal Astronomical Society; Member, American Geophysical Union; Affiliate, New York Academy of Science

"I place Acharya's work in the league of the non-fiction works of Ayn Rand, Edward Gibbon, Alexander Solzhenitzen. They are books that I deem critical to understanding one's position in history. If everyone would simply put forth the effort to read all these huge works ... the world would be a much nicer place to live in." EBTX

"A superb scholarly work. Every detail thoroughly researched. Highly recommended." David Deley

"Amidst the global chaos of George Bush's War on Terror, largely founded on religious intolerance and simplistic notions of good and evil, Acharya S is the voice of reason." Joan D'Arc

"Congratulations on your latest book, Suns of God. It's as impressive as The Christ Conspiracy. Remarkably well-done for an independent scholar. And your absence of 'political correctness' adds spice to the narrative. Clearly you have a talent for seeing through the semantic fog." Steve L.

"I highly recommend the book Suns of God." P333

"Well researched and well documented, saliently savvy and playfully punchy, Suns of God offers a continuance of the wildly successful Christ Conspiracy. Nearly 600 pages of accessible archaeology and hands-on history are linked for the layperson in this newest volume, replete with brilliant insight and impeccably documented facts and evidences for an adventurous romp through the ancient past. ...truly a magnificent volume." Danny McNeal

"Suns of God is truly powerful stuff, not only in the arguments it makes, but in the breadth and depth of resources you bring to the argument. I truly appreciate the use of the Catholic Encyclopedia (among other Christian sources) to prove that Christianity, like its supposed founder, is just so much rehashed pagan mythology." Storm Fox

"In Suns of God, Acharya S has given us a deeply researched background of and explanation for the religions that dominate the world and that have dominated human thinking for thousands of years. I found it, not only illuminating, but uplifting. It gave me cause for hope that widespread knowledge of what religions have in common will cause humankind to pause and think twice when the next set of extremists calls for a holy war." David Bergland, Libertarianism in One Lesson, 1984 Libertarian Presidential Candidate
