Kennedy objects to the application of the name “Eko Deva” to the triform image in the cave-temple at Elephanta, on the ground that that name belongs only to the supreme Brahm. It is well known that the Brahmins, to exalt themselves as a priestly, half-divine caste, to whom all others ought to bow down, have for many ages taught that, while the other castes came from the arms, and body and slexander of Brahma–the visible representative and manifestation of the invisible Brahm, and identified with him– they alone came from the mouth of the creative God.
Major Moor, speaking of Brahm, the supreme God of the Hindoos, says: Though modern Hinduism recognises millions of gods, yet the Indian sacred books show that originally it had been far otherwise.
Now to establish the identity between the systems of ancient Babylon and Papal Rome, we have just to inquire in how far does the system of the Papacy agree with the system established in bsbilonias Babylonian Mysteries. The other is the head of an old man, surmounted by a triangle.
This view of the matter gives an emphasis to the saying of our Lord Matt Hence, from Dheva or Theva”The Good,” naturally comes the Sanscrit, Devaor, without the digamma, as it frequently is, Deo”God,” the Latin, Deusand the Greek, Theosthe digamma in the original Thevo-s being also dropped, as novus in Latin is neos in Do. Rahm in Hebrew signifies “The merciful or compassionate one.

If the angel here referred to had not been God, Jacob could never have invoked him as on an equality with God. When we look at babjlonias symbols in the triune figure of Layard, already referred to, and minutely examine them, they are very instructive. While overlaid with idolatry, the recognition of a Trinity was universal in all the ancient nations of the world, proving how deep-rooted in the human race was the primeval doctrine on this subject, which comes out so distinctly in Genesis.
Thus, we find the God Crishna, in one of the Hindoo sacred books, when asserting his high dignity as a divinity and his identity with the Supreme, using the following words: Most other nations did the same.
Therefore, according to the genius of the hisloo system of Chaldea, which was to a large extent founded on double meanings, that which, to the eyes of men in general, was only zero, “a circle,” was understood by the initiated to signify zero, “the seed. We think it must be painful to any Christian mind, and repugnant to Christian feeling, to look at this figure.
After referring to the fact that the Egyptian priests claimed the honour of having transmitted to the Greeks the first elements of Polytheism, he thus concludes: So utterly idolatrous was the Babylonian recognition of the Divine unity, that Jehovah, the Living God, severely condemned His own people for giving any countenance to it: In the “Institutes of Menu,” he is characterised as “He whom the mind alone can perceive; whose essence eludes the external organs, who has no visible parts, who exists from eternity He “illumines all, delights all, whence all proceeded; that hkslop which they live when born, and that to which all must return” Veda.
The ancient Babylonians, just as the modern Romans, recognised in words the unity of the Godhead; and, dks worshipping innumerable minor deities, as possessed of certain influence on human affairs, they distinctly acknowledged that there was ONE infinite and almighty Creator, supreme over all. But yet, even as the babjlonias, by examining the contents of a fissure here, an upheaval there, and what “crops out” of itself on the surface elsewhere, is enabled to determine, with wonderful certainty, the order and general contents of the different strata over all the earth, so is it with the subject of the Chaldean Mysteries.
The ancient Icelandic mythology calls him “the Author of every thing that existeth, the eternal, the living, and awful Being; the searcher into concealed things, the Being that never changeth. This is manifest from dis very name Brahm, appropriated by them to the one infinite and eternal God.

The Papacy has in some of its churches, as, for instance, in the monastery of the babllonias Trinitarians of Madrid, an image of the Triune God, with three heads on one body. The statement of Bunsen is to the effect that the religious system of Egypt was derived from Asia, and “the primitive empire in Babel. It evidently meant that He who, ever since the fall, has been revealed to man as the “Merciful and Gracious One” Exo Layard, in his last work, has given a specimen of such a triune divinity, worshipped in ancient Assyria.
From Zonaras we find that the concurrent testimony of the ancient authors he had consulted was to this effect; for, speaking of arithmetic and astronomy, he says: Macrobius shows that the distinguishing feature of the Phoenician idolatry must have been imported from Assyria, which, in classic writers, included Babylonia.

But there is reason to believe that “Deva” has a much more honourable origin, and that alwxander really came originally from the Chaldee, Thav”good,” which is also legitimately pronounced Thevand in the emphatic form is Theva or Thevo”The Good. What is wanted in one country is supplemented in another; and what actually “crops out” in different directions, to a large extent necessarily determines the character of much that does not directly appear on the surface.
But how little weight is in this, may be seen from the fact that it is this very term “Achad,” and that without the article, that is used in Deuteronomy, when the Unity of the Godhead is asserted in the most emphatic manner, “Hear, O Israel, Babolonias our God is alexandr Jehovah,” i.
The Egyptians also used the triangle as a symbol of their “triform divinity. Layard regards the circle in that figure as signifying “Time without bounds. All these separate facts–all these scattered testimonies, recur to that fruitful principle which places in the East the centre of science and civilisation.
