The spiritual Truth of Eastern figures in human history
(including the Middle Eastern region)
Known as a Biblical prophet, in fact was a great leader sent down to earth from heaven with a mission to build a Kingdom of God on Earth in a concrete form. Moses was born as the son of a Hebrew slave, but soon after his birth he was set adrift on the river Nile in a reed basket. This basket was discovered by the pharaoh’s daughter and thus Moses was raised in the palace, where he was engaged in both warfare and academic studies. After discovering his true origins and receiving a message from Yahweh asking to free Hebrew people from the slavery of Egypt, Moses took an action known as the Exodus. Yahweh, who guided Moses, in fact was one of the 9th dimension spirits called Enlil, but Moses was unable to differentiate between the supreme God, El, who was worshiped widely in the Middle East and the numerous spirits that surrounded Him. This confusion led to a history of persecution, the isolation of Israel, and fierce wars for the following three thousand years. In fact, Moses is the high spirit from the 9th dimension in the Spirit World, where he stands for leadership and has a strong influence over politics and military affairs.
A Biblical prophet who appeared in Israel in the 9th century BC, in fact was sent down from heaven to establish faith in Yahweh. Elijah appeared in a role of a religious reformer, whose mission was to bring down cultish worship of Baal or Beelzebub (the god of wealth) and to restore the traditional monotheism of Yahweh. Elijah was a man with an indomitable personality and with a support of heaven he was successful in defeating evil Baalism and revitalizing the original faith in Yahweh. Elijah left this world at the age of twenty-eight and is now living in the Tathagata Realm, the 8th dimension in the Spirit World where he is in charge of planning for the entire Earth.
(4 B.C. - 30 AD), also known as Jesus of Nazareth or simply Jesus is the central figure of Christianity, a Savior and the Messiah foretold in the Old Testament. From the point of view of the Spirit World, Jesus Christ is one of the highest spirits in the 9th dimension who shares the ultimate responsibilities for the planet Earth. Previously he was born on earth as Krishna (4700 B.C.) and later on as Clario in Egypt. Whilst preaching on earth, Jesus Christ was directly guided by El Cantare to whom he often referred to as “Father”. The teaching of love, which gave Jesus’ message its universality and held the key to his teachings becoming a world religion, in fact, was guided by one of El Cantare’s brouther souls, Hermes.
Mohammed or Muhammad
(570 – 632) is the founder of the religion of Islam and by Muslims is regarded as a messenger and prophet of God. In fact Mohammed was a spirit from the Tathagata Realm of the 8th dimension in the Spirit world. “The messages he received in the cave originated from the same group of high spirits who had guided Jesus and the Old Testament prophets. However they differed in detail due to the fact that Mohammed was preaching in an area that was based on a powerful military force. This illustrates the powerful influence that period and location can have on the same basic message p171”. Later one part of the life form known as Mohammed was reincarnated as Swiss priest Ulrich (or Huldrych) Zwingli (1484 – 1531) known as the leader of reformation in Switzerland.
(624 – 544 B.C.) also known as Gautama Siddhartha was a great spiritual leader from ancient India and he is the historical founder of what came to be known as Buddhism. From viewpoint of the Real World, Shakyamuni Buddha is one of the brother souls and the past lives of El Cantare – the most powerful spirit of the whole terrestrial spirit group who resides in the highest reaches of the the 9th dimension of the Spirit World. He is responsible for the overall guiding of the terrestrial spirit group, creating a new age and building new civilizations. The true earthly lives of the spirit of Shakyamuni Buddha are: La Mu (the Mu continent - 17,000 years ago), Thoth (Atlantis - 12,000 years ago), Rient Arl Croud (the Incan Empire - 7,000 years ago), Ophealis (Greece - 6,500 years ago), Hermes (Greece - 4,300 years ago), Ryuho Okawa (Japan - present reincarnation).

Hindu Trimurti consists of three gods who are Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Vishnu is regarded as the preserver and protector of the universe. In fact Vishnu was the first spiritual leader born in the land of India approximately 6500 B.C. and later worshiped as god. From the view point of the Spirit World, Vishnu is the god of love and wisdom and comes originally from the Tathagata Realm of the 8th dimension.
(c. 4700 BC) is known as the major Hindu deity. Shiva is the third god in the Trimurti – the Hindu Trinity of the primary aspects of the divine. Hindu Trimurti consists of three gods who are Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Shiva is known as the god of destruction. In fact, the legend of the god Shiva comes from the life of man called Silvananda, who was born in Western India approximately 4700 B.C. Silvananda was a Great Guiding Spirit of Light from the Tathagata Realm of the 8th dimension. He was a great military hero, who was later to be reincarnated as Alexander the Great (356 BC– 323 BC) and after that as Napoleon Bonaparte (1769 – 1821), who in the Real World is known as the god of freedom.

Some groups recognize Krishna as an incarnation of Vishnu, whilst other traditions consider him to be the Supreme Being. In fact, Krishna was a grand Tathagata from of the 9th dimension of the Spirit World, who was born in India around 4700 B.C. Krishna was later reincarnated in Egypt as Clario, who taught laws and bolstered the national feeling of the people, and finally he was born as Jesus of Nazareth in 4 B.C.
Yao (also known as Taotang Shi)
Was the first great leader born in Shansi (China) in around 3200 B.C. After becoming emperor, Yao founded an ideal theocracy and as a result his fame spread throughout the land. His spirit originally came from the Tathagata Realm of the 8th dimension and he was later reincarnated as Akbar the Great (1542 – 1605), the man who founded the Mogul empire in India and created the golden era for this empire, organizing the army and bureaucracy, abolishing the head tax, and trying to reconcile Islam and Hinduism.
Was a 23rd-22nd century BC leader of ancient China, whose half-century of rule was one of the longest in Chinese history. Shun was renowned for his filial devotion and wisdom and he received the mantle of leadership from Emperor Yao. Shun was later reincarnated as Emperor Wu-ti (159 - 87 BC) of the Han dynasty, who enlarged the empire and established a centralized government. Shun was from the Tathagata Realm of the 8th dimension and in more recent history was reincarnated in America as President Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882 – 1945), who during his lifetime worked to bring about a recovery from the Great Depression of the 1930’s.
Yu the Great
Is one of the legendary Three Sage Kings and Five Virtuous Emperors at the dawn of Chinese civilization, enjoying an equal reputation with Yao and Shun, the sage kings. Yu is considered to be the founder and the first Chinese monarch of Xia Dynasty. Yu was a man of great virtue. He is best remembered for teaching the people flood control techniques to tame China's rivers and lakes. Yu received the crown from Shun and went on to create the country of Xia. Yu the Great was a high spirit from the Bodhisattva Realm of the 7th dimension. He later was reincarnated as Emperor Justinian I (483 – 565) of the Byzantine Empire and initiated a revision and editing of Roman law, which later on had a profound influence on early European law. Yu the Great was reincarnated yet again as Jawaharlal Nehru (1889 – 1964), who was to become the first prime minister of India after it received independence following the Second World War.
(ca. 150–250 CE) was an Indian philosopher who founded the Madhyamika sect of Mahayana Buddhism. Although there is little known about the actual life of the historical Nagarjuna, from the perspective of the Real World, Nagarjuna was a high spirit of the Tathagata Realm of the 8th dimension. He was sent down to India in order to revive true teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha, which after several hundred years became diluted. In this sense, Nagarjuna’s mission on Earth was very similar to the one entrusted to Martin Luther in the Christian Church.
(1133-1212) was the religious reformer and founder of the first independent branch of Japanese Pure Land Buddhism called Jodo shu ("The Pure Land School"). Honen founded the Nembutsu form of worship – the repeated chanting of the name of Amida Buddha or Amitabha. Honen’s spirit came from the upper reaches of the Bodhisattva Realm, the 7th dimension in the Spirit world. In his past life Honen was St. Thomas, one of Jesus’ twelve disciples and later on his brother soul was reincarnated in India as Nagarjuna’s successor named Deba.
(538-597) was the famous Chinese Buddhist monk who brought Buddhism to prominence in China. His teachings were based on the Lotus Sutra and their analytical and systematic content made them very original. T’ien-t’ai Chih-i on numerous occasions received direct guidance from Sakyamuni Buddha until he himself attained true enlightenment and was able to communicate freely with the Spirit world. By 594, when he preached his Discourse on Mahayana Meditation and Contemplation, he had already arrived at the full enlightenment of the Tathagata – the state of mind, which corresponds to the 8th dimension in the Spirit world.
(446 -528) was a Buddhist monk who introduced Zen Buddhism to China. Bodhidharma had been born as a prince of a royal family in southern India, but so eager was he to spread the word that at the age of fifty-six he travelled by ship to China and began to preach in the area around Lo-yang. Bodhidharma was reincarnated in Japan in recent years as Daisetsu Suzuki (1870 – 1966), whose work in spreading Zen in the West bears a lot in common with Bodhidharma’s earlier work in China. Bodhidharma was originally from the Bodhisattva Realm of the 7th dimension, but fell after his life as Daisetsu Suzuki, when he became too involved in academic intellectualism, and for that reason he is now undergoing training in the upper area of the Light Realm, the 6th dimension of the Spirit world.
(c.372 – 289 B.C.) was an itinerant Chinese philosopher and sage, and one of the principal interpreters of Confucianism. He followed the teachings of Confucius' grandson, Tsu-ssu (c.483 – c.402 B.C.), but was destined to enlarge upon his master’s work. Tsu-ssu came from the upper part of Bodhisattva Realm in the 7th dimension and he had an important role of inheriting the teachings of Confucius and transmitting them to Mencius. Mencius lived during the Warring States period and is famous for his belief in the original inborn goodness of human nature that is bestowed from heaven. From the view point of the Real World, Mencius was a Brahma, which means that he came from the highest regions of the Bodhisattva Realm, the 7th dimension in the Spirit World.
(298 – 235 B.C.) was a Chinese Confucian philosopher who lived during the Warring States Period and contributed to one of the Hundred Schools of Thought. Although Hsun-tzu was a successor of Mencius, he took the opposite view of that of his predecessor, saying that humans were innately evil, selfish and prone to do wrong, and that propriety was necessary to improve on this state. Hsun-tzu was from the Light Realm, the 6th dimension in the Spirit world and later on was reincarnated in Europe as Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679), who is famous for his work “Leviathan”.
(587 – 502 B.C.) was a Chinese philosopher known as the founder of Taoism. Lao-tzu was active in the same period as Confucius was and had some contact with the young Confucius. Lao Tzu believed that human life, like everything else in the universe, is constantly influenced by outside forces. He believed “simplicity” to be the key to truth and freedom. Lao Tzu encouraged his followers to observe, and seek to understand the laws of nature; to develop intuition and build up personal power; and to use that power to lead life with love, and without force. Lao-tzu held the view that everyone should return to a life of ease and living at one with nature. His image of ideal society was based on a village that exists in the Real World. It is a fact that in the Tathagata Realm, the 8th dimension in the Spirit World, the place where Lao-tzu came from, society comprises gentle people who live in small groups surrounded by variety of flowering plants that represent the full wonder of nature. The ultimate difference between Confucius and Lao-tzu can be summed up by saying that “one was an educator of the heavenly realm and the other an inhabitant of the heavenly realm”.
(367 – 279 B.C.) was an influential Chinese philosopher, who lived in a period corresponding to the philosophical summit of Chinese thought — the Hundred Schools of Thought. Chuang-tzu was a psychic who often visited the heavenly realm through astral travel and, having this experience to enjoy, he thought nothing of worldly values, comparison or discrimination. This can be felt in his philosophy, which he adapted from his predecessor Lao-tzu. In a past life, Chuang-tzu, was born in Greece as Eros, the son of Hermes and Aphrodite. Later, he was born as the great thinker Rene Descartes (1596 – 1650), who is sometimes referred as the father of modern philosophy and who is famous for his book “Discourse on Method”. Then, his brother soul was reincarnated in Austria as Franz Kafka (1883 – 1924), who was famous for such unique books as “Metamorphosis and the Trial”. Kafka was apparently also a psychic. Chuang-tzu came from the upper reaches of the Tathagata Realm, the 8th dimension in the Spirit World and a branch of his spirit was later incarnated as the Japanese Buddhist priest, Saigyo Hoshi (1118–1190).
(1472 – 1529) was one of the most influential Chinese philosophers in the Confucian tradition during the Ming dynasty. He is best known for his theory of the unity of knowledge and action, and in fact, his true intention was to teach the relationship between the thought and action. Wang Yang-ming was originally from the Tathagata Realm, the 8th dimension in the Spirit World and his work was comparable to that of Martin Luther and Calvin in Christianity.
(meaning “God Ruling the Centre of Heaven”)
Often called Ame-no-Minakanushi-no-Kami (“Kami” means god) and known as one of the supreme Shinto gods, in fact was a Tathagata from the highest area of the 8th dimension in the Spirit World. He was incarnated in human form approximately 830 years B.C. This was two hundred years before Shakyamuni, three hundred years before Confucius, and more than three hundred years before Socrates. Ame-no-Minakanushi-no-Mikoto came down to Earth with the express purpose of creating the Japanese nation. He was a powerful politician and a man of religion, and was the first to suggest that the person who can transmit the words of god should be the one to rule the country. Ame-no-Minakanushi-no-Mikoto was a powerful psychic, who could read people’s minds and foresee the future. Through his strong belief in the monism of light and the creative power of words, he was successful in creating the land of light and therefore his people worshiped him as a kind of primordial god.
Known as one of the main Shinto gods in fact was a man who succeeded throne of Takachiho (ancient Japanese nation in southern Kyushu) from Ame-no-Minakanushi-no-Mikoto. Taka-Mi-Musuhi-no-Mikoto was a noble who was also both a powerful mystic and a virtuous man. He was a particularly gifted clairvoyant and knew the plans of all the countries hostile on his own, making him invincible in battle. Taka-Mi-Musuhi-no-Mikoto was from the Tathagata Realm, the 8th dimension in the Spirit World.
Known as one of the main Shinto gods in fact was the 3rd king of Takachiho (ancient Japanese nation in southern Kyushu). He was particularly gifted in talking to the spirits and Ame-no-Minakanushi-no-Mikoto, who had already returned to the heavenly realm by this time, provided him guidance on running the country. From the spiritual point of view, Kamu-Musuhi-no-Kami, the same as other two main Shinto gods, was from the Tathagata Realm, the 8th dimension in the Spirit Wolrd.
Known as a Japanese Shinto goddess and often referred to as the supreme or principal deity in the Shinto religion of Japan, in fact was the first empress and the fifth monarch of Takachiho in the line that began with Ame-no-Minakanushi-no-Mikoto. Although Amaterasu-O-Mikami was not a member of the royal family, she was accepted as a ruler because it had been so commanded from heaven. From the perspective if the Real World, she was the inhabitant of the Goddess Realm, the 8th dimension in the Spirit World. Amaterasu-O-Mikami was active in Japan approximately one hundred years before Shakyamuni appeared in India. She reigned for about twenty years, and during that period, the national prestige of the country was notably enhanced. Since then, Amaterasu-O-Mikami has been regarded as the guardian of Japan’s people and the symbol of Japanese cultural unity.
Was a Japanese folk hero who lived around the end of the 3rd and the beginning of the 4th century AD. He was the son of the 12th Emperor, Keikou. Yamato-Takeru-no-Mikoto was responsible for expanding the territory of the Yamato court and it was at this time that the court expanded eastwards from Kyushu up to Nara where a new capital was built. Yamato-Takeru-no-Mikoto was from the Tathgata Realm, the 8th dimension in the Spirit World and is one of the prime nation-builders among the high spirits. In previous reincarnations he had been Han Hsin (3rd -2nd century B.C.), and was responsible for the creation of the Han dynasty in China. He was born again in Japan in the 19th century as Aritomo Yamagata (1838 – 1922), General of the Army, and was responsible for making Japan into a major military power.
Shotoku Taishi or Prince Shotoku
(574–622) was a very influential regent and a politician of the early history of Japan. He was the second son of the Emperor Yomei and acted as regent for his aunt, Empress Suiko. Prince Shotoku laid the framework for the country of Japan through creating strong unified government, drawing up a seventeen article constitution, and cutting across the traditional system of hereditary rank and offering opportunities for a wider range of people to rise in public office. Prince Shotoku was a great Tathagata from the 8th dimension of the Spirit World. By introducing ranking system based more on the character rather than ability, he wanted to recreate the hierarchy of the Real World upon Earth. Prince Shotoku initiated diplomatic relations with at that time more advanced China and played a great role in spreading Buddhism in Japan. Prince Shotoku was in fact a reincarnation of the Greek statesman Solon (638 BC–558 BC) and in the 19th century was his brother soul was reincarnated in America as Abraham Lincoln (1809 -1865).
(767–822) was a Japanese Buddhist monk who founded the Tendai sect in Japan and is often referred to by the honorific name Dengyo Daishi, which means “the master who transmitted the teachings”. From the point of view of the Real World, Saichi was a high spirit from the Bodhisattva Realm of the 7th dimension. His mission on Earth was to travel to China and bring the Tendai faith back to Japan. Saicho was an exponent of the “one vehicle” philosophy that claimed that anybody could become a Buddha, but he failed to realize that there are different levels of enlightenment that can be achieved by those searching for the Truth. In attempt to establish his particular variety of Buddhism, Saicho was overcome by the feelings of impatience, aggression, jealousy, the lust for fame and pride. For nearly 1200 years since his death in 822, Saicho has been repenting his mistakes in hell. He has not been able to forgive himself for the involvement of his sect in the political struggles and for the mistakes contained in his teachings that have spread so widely and influenced the number of priests who have lost their way as the result.
Kukai, also known as Kobo Daishi
(774–835), was a Japanese monk, scholar, poet, and artist, who founded the Shingon (True Word) sect of esoteric Buddhism. During twenty days meditation at Murotozaki (Muroto cape) Kukai underwent a miraculous spiritual experience after which gained the powers of both clairvoyance and clairaudience and began to communicate with the spirits of the Real World. His guiding spirits at this time were Shakyamuni Buddha and Amoghavajra. Acting on the directions of Amoghavajra, Kukai traveled to China in 804 and studied under the priest Hui-kuo (746 – 805). After returning back to Japan in 806, he founded the Shingon (True Word) sect of esoteric Buddhism. Kukai’s greatness lied in his desire to help the masses based on which he created Mannoike reservoir in Sanuki and Shugei-Shuchi-in School in Kyoto to teach Buddhism and Confucianism to the students from common families. Kukai is presently studying the Law in the Tathagata Realm, the 8th dimension in the Spirit World and the main theme of his studies is the “characteristics of will power”.
(942– 1017) was the famous Buddhist priest, who had a great influence on the founding of the Pure Land sects in Japan. Genshin was a high spirit from the Tathagata Realm, the 8th dimension in the Spirit World. In an earlier incarnation Genshin was John the Baptist, who baptized Jesus Christ at the age of thirty. Later, Genshin was born again in Sweden as Emanuel Swedenborg (1688 – 1772), a famous scientist theosophist and mystic who wrote prolifically on his travels to the Spirit World. In his life as Genshin, too, he was very adept at astral travel in the Spirit World and repeatedly left his body to visit the realms of heaven and hell. It was these experiences that permitted him to write his vivid descriptions of heaven, hell and the six paths, the famous part in his “Essentials of Pure Land Rebirth”, a collection of excerpts of various sutras.
(1173 – 1262) – a Japanese Buddhist monk was one of the greatest religious leaders of Kamakura period (1192 – 1333). Shinran was a pupil of Honen (1133-1212) and the founder of what ultimately became known as Jodo-Shinshu (The Pure Land sect). From the spiritual point of view Shinran was a Bodhisattva from the 7th dimension in the Spirit world and in his past reincarnation he was St. Paul – one of the twelve disciples of Jesus Christ. This fact in a sense explains why the philosophy of salvation in The Pure Land sect bears a resemblance to Christianity, which emphasizes the salvation through outside power and is accessible to wide masses.
(1141 – 1215) was a Japanese Buddhist priest, who brought Zen Buddhism from China to Japan. He opened Ken’nin-ji Temple in Kyoto and Jufuku-ji Temple in Kamakura. Eisai was a great entrepreneur as well as a spiritual teacher, whose activities had a great influence on Japanese history and culture. Eisai is a high spirit who is presently living in the Brahma Realm, between the 7th and the 8th dimensions in the Spirit World and is very sad to see that only the form, not the substance, of Koan Zen remains today.
(1200 – 1253) was a Japanese Zen Buddhist teacher born in Kyoto, who after travelling to China founded the Soto school of Zen in Japan. Being a contemporary of Shinran, Dogen was scathing in his criticism of the Jodo sects that believed in salvation through an outside power. While it is true that Dogen was a poet, philosopher and seeker of the Truth at its highest level, he failed to realize that there are two sides to human discipline – although humans must strive to raise themselves to the highest level and seek perfection, they must also live for the love of others. Dogen is presently living in the middle area of the Bodhisattva Realm, the 7th dimension in the Spirit World, where he is disciplining himself in love.
(1222 –1282) was a one of the most prominent Japanese Buddhist priests of the 13th century whose teachings gave a beginning for a new branch of Buddhism called “Nichirem Buddhism”. Nichiren taught devotion to the Lotus Sutra, entitled Myoho-Renge-Kyo in Japanese, as the exclusive means to attain enlightenment, and the chanting of Nam-Myoho Renge-Kyo as the essential practice of the teaching. Nichiren completely abandoned the quest for personal perfection and concentrated only on the salvation of the masses, although both are essential aspects of Buddhism. Nichiren’s soul was from the Upper Realm of the 7th dimension, and although his teachings were of a closed character, filled with fanaticism and exclusiveness, Nichitren had an aspiration to create a gateway to the Truth for masses and did it with a great passion.
(1861 – 1930) was a modern Christian prophet who appeared in recent history in Japan. He was the leading figure in the Christian church from the end of the 19th century and it was mainly due to his effort that the Christian faith took roots in Japan. Kanzo Uchimura was actually a reincarnation of the Old Testament prophet Jeremiah, while his disciple Tadao Yanaibara (1893 – 1961) was a reincarnation of St. Peter – one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ. Kanzo Uchimura and Tadao Yanaibara both were high spirits charged with spreading Christianity in Japan.
(1893 - 1985) was a Japanese New Thought leader, who founded the religious movement known as “Seicho-no-Ie” (meaming “House of Growth”). Seeking for the Truth to answer fundamental life questions, with great care and effort, he studied many of the philosophies and thoughts of east and west. After many trials and errors, Masaharu Taniguchi finally attained enlightenment by receiving a revelation from a high spirit. The monism of light was the central core of his enlightenment and philosophy. It is no wonder, when we know that Masaharu Taniguchi was guided by Ame-no-Minakanushi-no-Kami (Mikoto) – the principal god of Japanese Shinto religion. Masaharu Taniguchi’s main written work, “The Truth of Life”, consists of forty volumes, all of which were created through automatic writing when his body was under the control of Ame-no-Minakanushi-no-Kami of his attendant spirits.
(1927 – 1976) was the founder of the new Japanese religious organization entitled “God Light Association” (GLA). “Shinji Takahashi’s aim was to create a Buddhist revival, but he did not attained the understanding of the core concepts of Buddhism and never got beyond the yogi asceticism that Shakyamuni had undergone before attaining enlightenment. Shinji Takahashi dwells at present in the Japanese Sennin-Tengu Realm in the 7th dimension of the Minor Heaven. However, his soul was originally a part of the life form known as Enlil, a being from the 9th dimension in the Minor Heaven, who had a strong influence on ancient Judaism. Shinji Takahashi previously was incarnated as En-no-Ozunu or En-no-Gyoja (c.634) - a Japanese ascetic and mystic, who founded Shugendo (mountain asceticism) in Japan.
