Scripture Reading: Jeremiah 2:25: “There is no hope: no; for I have loved strangers (Hebrew zuhr, racial alien), and after them (racial strangers) I will go.”
This coronavirus pandemic may well have been that Big Pharma and Microsoft have come together to work on something called the ID 2020 Alliance. This alliance will combine vaccinations with implantable microchips to create digital IDs of all individuals that take the vaccine. This was published on October 24, 2019, in “Now The End Begins” written by Geoffrey Grider.
What a strange union. It gets worse. In 2018, the Pirbright Institute was granted a patent, for what, the coronavirus. The US patent application number is 20170216427. Pirbright is funded by Bill and Melinda Gates. On October 18, 2019, Bill and Melinda Gates hosted a pandemic exercise called Event 201 along with The World Economic Forum and John Hopkins Center for Health Security. This event was based on a mock pandemic exercise and the need for a vaccine.
One-month later China has a coronavirus outbreak. If these vaccines they create have RFID microchips in them and everyone is moved to take the vaccine either by fear or force, then they would have successfully chipped everyone. With that, they will be able to control and monitor the lives of everyone. If their intention is to get everyone chipped, an easy way to do that would be to put the chip in a vaccine that fights the virus causing the pandemic that they created.
In Richard Hoskin’s book, “In the Beginning… The story of The International Trade Cartel”, Chapter 4, it takes the first four pages talking about a town in Virginia. It was a town that was in Buckingham County on the banks of the James River. The James River was named after King James I of England as was Jamestown, Virginia, the first settlement of the English in 1607.
“The Route led through Buckingham’s back roads. Buckingham is a poor county. There aren’t many people living there. The winding road through the pine forest seemed interminable. At last I encountered a sign pointing to a left turn which said ‘Welcome—Satchidananda, Ashram, Yogaville. Lotus Shrine 5/8 mi., Visitors ¾ mi.’” Ibid., page 30.
What kind of town was this, that Richard Hoskins went to see? On page 31 of his book, “In the Beginning”, he stated that:
“…there were 750 acres in Yogaville, and perhaps 60 Swamis (teachers), both male and female. Private interest have [has] bought 250 acres across the road which are in the process of being subdivided into building lots. It was a town built for the Hindus.”
The town was founded by one of the Hindu “gurus”, Sri Swami Satchidananda, whose real name was C. K. Ramaswamy Gounder. He was born in India, where he lived a normal life with his wife. But his wife died when he was young, so he set out to find a more religious life.
We will skip most of his life story and get to the next question. How did he get to America? How did he purchase the land and build the Hindu temple in Virginia? How did a Hindu guru, get to America when he was 60 years old, and then get the money to build a whole Hindu town, with hundreds of acres in a beautiful setting in Virginia? Hindu priests take a vow of poverty, just like one of the so-called Christian denominations.
Most of us lived through the period when he was invited and came to the United States. I don’t remember when he came; in fact, I didn’t even know that he did come. I don’t even know who he was. I don’t have any idea who invited him.
It was psychedelic artist Peter Max Finkelstein, son of German Jews, who:
Was born in Berlin, Germany,
Lived for ten years in Shanghai, China,
Lived for several years in Haifa, Israeli,
Lived for several months in India and Africa and Paris, France,
Lived, finally, in Brooklyn, New York.
This was the individual who invited the Sri Swami Satchidananda to come to America. He came in the year 1966.
Sri stayed in the home of Peter and his friend, Victor Zurbel for a couple of days. He held yoga classes in several different locations and soon gained more and more notoriety. Within three years, his popularity had grown so much that he gave the introductory prayer at Woodstock in 1969. There were almost half-a-million people (mostly youngsters) who attended that music festival in New York. Here is what he said, word for word [with my comments in brackets], at Woodstock:
SATCHIDANANDA’S WOODSTOCK SPEECH
“My Beloved Brothers and Sisters:
[The Hindu priest had universal brothers and sisters. Everyone was classified as being of the same seed line as he was.]
I am overwhelmed with joy to see the entire youth of America gathered here in the name of ………………………
…………………the fine art of music.
[Sri said that the youth of America that was at Woodstock were gathered together in the name…not of the LORD God of Israel, but in the name of the fine art of music. Many musicians would question the fine art of music that was played at Woodstock; as they would say that it was the corrupted art of music.]
In fact, through the music, we can work wonders. Music is a celestial sound and it is the sound that controls the whole universe, not atomic vibrations. Sound energy, sound power is much, much greater than any other power in this world.
[Music is a celestial sound…does that mean that all kinds of music are a celestial sound? Country, rock & roll, hip-hop, classical, hymns, etc. are all a celestial sound? Sound energy and power are much greater than any other power in this world? Is it more powerful than the Word of God?]
And, one thing I would very much wish you all to remember is that with sound, we can make—and at the same time, break. Even in the war-field, to make the tender heart an animal, sound is used. Without that war band, that terrific sound, man will not become animal to kill his own brethren. So, that proves that you can break with sound, and if we care, we can make also.
[Does music control the whole universe? There is music that makes you sad, happy, want to dance, want to worship, go to war and stay at peace. Isn’t there a huge difference between hymns and hip-hop!]
So, I am very happy to see that we are all here gathered to create some sounds—to find that peace and joy through the celestial music. And I am really very much honored for having been given this opportunity of opening this great, great music Festival. I should have come a little earlier to do that job, but as you all know, thousands of brothers and sisters are on the way and it’s not that easy to reach here.
[Woodstock produced celestial music? Music that brought peace and joy? That is debatable. Many will say that the music came from the pit. All music is not celestial music.]
America leads the whole world in several ways. Very recently, when I was in the East, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi met me and asked me what’s happening in America, and I said, ‘America is becoming a whole. America is helping everybody in the material field, but the time has come for America to help the whole world with spirituality also.’ And, that’s why from the length and breadth, we see people—thousands of people, yoga-minded, spiritual-minded. The whole of last month I was in Hawaii and I was on the West Coast and witnessed it again.
[America is to help the world in spirituality? Does the Bible say this? Where did the Hindu priest get this idea? Is America to be yoga-minded? What does yoga have to do with Christianity?]
So, let all our actions, and all our arts express yoga. Through that sacred art of music, let us find peace that will pervade all over the globe. Often, we hear groups of people shouting, “Fight for Peace.” I still don’t understand how they are going to fight and then find peace. Therefore, let us not fight for peace, but let us find peace within ourselves first.
[Let all our actions and arts express yoga? What religion is Sri teaching? Hinduism and Buddhism. Through music we will find peace within ourselves that would provide peace in the world. This is not what Christianity teaches, this is what Hinduism teaches--Dharma, tolerance.]
And the future of the whole world is in your hands. You can make or break. But you are really here to make the world and not to break it. I am seeing it. There is a dynamic manpower here. The hearts are meeting. Just yesterday I was in Princeton, at Stony Brook in a monastery, where about two hundred or three hundred Catholic monks and nuns met and they asked me to talk to them under the heading of ‘East and West—One Heart.’
Here, I really wonder whether I am in the East or West. If these pictures or the films are going to be shown in India, they would certainly never believe that this is taken in America. For here, the East has come into the West. And with all my heart, I wish a great, great success in this music Festival to pave the way for many more festivals in many other parts of this country.
[“The future of the whole world is in your hands” and “there is a dynamic manpower here”? I don’t think that there was a dynamic manpower that was there, but a dynamic demonic power that was there.
The East has come to the West, not the other way around. The Israel nations of the West have accepted the religions of the East, despite their God’s strict warnings. And the Hindu leader wishes for more immoral, drug invested, loud and sensual music festivals in other parts of our country!!]
But the entire success is in your hands, not in the hands of a few organizers. Naturally, they have come forward to do some job. I have met them. I admire them. But still, in your hands, the success lies. The entire world is going to watch this. The entire world is going to know that what the American youth can do to the humanity. So, every one of you should be responsible for the success of this Festival.
[Everyone who was at the festival; all 450,000 of them are responsible for the success of this Festival? Are you kidding me? Then, comes the real bad part of his speech.]
And, before I conclude my talk, I would like you all to join me and our group here in repeating a very simple chant. As I was reminding you of the sound power, there are certain mystical sounds which the Sanskrit terminology says are the bijakshara, or the ‘seed words.’
We are going to use three seed words, or the mystic words, to formulate the chants. And if you all join wholeheartedly, after the chant we are going to have at least one whole minute of absolute silence. Not even the cameras will click at that time. And in that silent period, that one minute of silence, you are going to feel the great, great power of that sound and the wonderful peace that it can bring in you and into the whole world. Let us have a sample of that now.
The words will be: ‘Hari’ is one word. ‘Om’ is another word.
The first chant will have these two words: ‘Hari Om Hari Om, Hari Hari Hari Om.’ The second line will be:
‘Hari Om, Hari Om, Hari Hari Om.’
[“Om” is the name of the consort of Siva, the mother goddess, whose other name is “Kali,” the goddess of death. This is a universal mantra that removes suffering. They are used in practicing yoga. Chanting mantras unites mind, body, and sound, but it omits the spirit, adding a deeper level of consciousness.
Chant softly, loudly, or even internally, depending on your mood and surroundings. Chanting influences your mental and emotional energy. Is this Christianity? No, chanting is forbidden in our Bibles. But the “guru” continues:]
There will be another chant afterwards: just one word, “Rama.” We’ll be repeating: “Rama, Rama, Rama, Rama, Rama, Rama, Rama, Ram.” It’s a sample. It’s very easy to follow with everybody and we’ll have a gentle clapping also. So, now we’ll begin in a slow rhythm and gradually build it up. Now I will request all of my friends to join me. We will repeat the line once, then allow you to follow. (The entire festival then chanted the “Hari Om” chant together.)
[The chants are for signifying the gods of the Hindus. It provides a means for the demons to enter the bodies of the chanter. It is like the “rosary” that the Roman Catholics say.]
Thank you all very much. And once again let me express my sincere wish and prayers for the success and peace of this celebration. Thank you.”
[Would the guru also bless the same way the other musical festivals that are in other countries of the world? For example, this year is the 15th year of Tomorrowland, which is held in Belgium. It was postponed due to the coronavirus. Refer to my sermon, if you are interested. It is anti-Christian.]
As time went on, the Hindu priest’s fame also grew. He soon gained more and more notable disciples, mostly entertainers. One was music-composer and singer, Carole King. As Sri Swami Satachidananda was not his birth name, nor was Carole King her real name. Her birth name was Carol Joan Klein, who was born of Jewish parents.
King made 25 solo albums, the most successful being Tapestry, which held the record for most weeks at No. 1 by a female artist for more than 20 years. Her record sales were estimated at more than 75 million copies worldwide. She has won four Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for her songwriting. She is the recipient of the 2013 Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, the first woman to be so honored. She is also a 2015 Kennedy Center Honoree.
As an interesting side story, Carole King or Carol Joan Klein dated Neil Sedaka, while they both were in high school. He made a hit song in 1959 that was called, “Oh! Carol”. I remember that song and didn’t have any idea that it was written about her! I didn’t even know that they knew each other, let alone that they dated each other.
As it turned out, Carole didn’t marry Neil; but she had four marriages. After her first divorce, King moved to Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles with her two daughters. Surprised! Refer to my other sermon about this town in California.
But she would eventually purchase hundreds of acres of land in Connecticut, as well as elsewhere, and had a home in the town of Canaan. Canaan! Carole King had a home in Canaan, Connecticut? You can’t make this stuff up!
It was her many acres in Connecticut that Carole gave to her “guru”, Satchidananda, that he sold in 1979 to buy 600 acres of land in Buckingham county, Virginia. The Hindu guru bought the land in Virginia from the money that he got from selling the land that Carole King had given him in Connecticut! Like I said before, you can’t make this stuff up!
Sri Swami Satchidananda created his own ashram called “Yogaville.” Yogaville became a compound for the swami’s most devoted followers and eventually the site of the so-called
LOTUS (Light of Truth Universal Shrine) was dedicated. More than half of the Hindu “guru” serious students were Jewish.
However, contrary to the swami’s supposed status as a celibate “Hindu monk” and despite the requirement that many of his devotees not marry and refrain from sex, Satchidananda was plagued by allegations of sexual misconduct. In 1991 numerous female followers stated that he had used his role as their spiritual mentor to exploit them sexually. One of Satchidananda’s former personal secretaries and an alleged victim said, “I feel betrayed.” Sounds like the Bidens.
Back to Carole King. She was a masterful songwriter and singer.

Light of Truth Universal Shrine (LOTUS)
The first interfaith shrine to house altars for all the world’s faiths.
“In order to have a better world, a more peaceful world, we must learn to love, respect, and honor every human being. Celebrate and enjoy the diversity because you recognize the underlying unity. It’s time to know each other and to live as one global family.”
~ Sri Swami Satchidananda
Hinduism is an interfaith religion. The distinctive teachings blend the physical discipline of yoga, the spiritual philosophy of India, and the interfaith ideals. These techniques and concepts influenced a generation and spawned a yoga culture that is flourishing today.
Hindus accept all gods. They are tolerant toward the claim of rival deities. They can do this because they identify divine beings who are newly sprung into popular favor as the incarnation of either Vishnu or Siva. In other words, Jesus is accepted as the rebirth of a Hindu god with a new name. Hinduism is the original “ecumenism.” The “one world” belief that “all gods are basically the same” is the basic Hindu belief.
Currently, over 35 million Americans (and 300 million worldwide) practice yoga as a means for managing stress, promoting health, slowing down the aging process, and creating a more meaningful life. The teachings of Swami Satchidananda have spread into the mainstream, with over 30 Integral yoga Institutes and Centers on six continents.
Today, Integral yoga Institutes, teaching centers, and certified teachers throughout the United States and abroad offer classes, workshops, retreats, and teacher training programs featuring all aspects of Integral yoga. The Integral yoga global community includes over 5,000 Integral yoga teachers—many of whom have become leaders in the changing paradigm of modern yoga and healthcare, as well as founding successful programs for specific populations.
In Elmore county, Alabama, their magazine for November 2019, featured on the cover the picture of a yoga instructor who owns Harmony Yoga. The magazine also contained an article entitled, “Yoga Empowers in Electric.” Electric is a city in Elmore county.
The magazine says:
“Harmony Yoga offers classes in chair yoga, power yoga, restorative yoga, vin yasa flow yoga and vin yin yoga. The classes vary in intensity and purpose. For example, restorative yoga is for relaxing and de-stressing, while vin yin is a blend of yoga flow and holding poses.”
The article continues that the instructor “teaches her clients to tune in and listen to their own bodies, as they learn proper alignment and form. While some attend classes at the recommendation of their physicians, most are there because they’re eager to begin a practice after learning about the many benefits of yoga.”

Then there are many universities, high schools, including church schools, YMCAs, recreational clubs, that have introduced many of their students to yoga. Even our local school system taught yoga to its students. It was many years ago, but I went to the principal and explained to her that yoga was against Christian teaching. She explained that she was in a yoga class that her church sponsored. I explained to her that I would go to the next Board of Education meeting and complain, unless the gym class would stop teaching yoga. They dropped yoga, but I think that they soon were teaching it again.
When did yoga come to the West? When I was in High School, there were no yoga classes offered. It was practically unknown.
Yoga became popular in the West around the same time of the explosion of the drug culture in the 60’s and the growth of certain types of music. Many people involved with psychedelic drugs and rock and roll music were (and are still today) attracted to any experience that offered an expansion of conscience, or a change of perceived reality. It was due to this changing Western drug culture that many Hindu missionaries slowly began to realize that through the new psychedelic experiences, the West was now entertaining a transcendental experience.
Mind expansion or altered states of conscience and a search for spirituality, without the constraints of religion, were suddenly what many of the youth were searching for. Anything, and that included yoga, that offered a new experience was sought after with great interest. Very few questions were asked as to the source of these new highs and experiences. Thus, the West was gradually introduced to an ancient Eastern religion through the medium of yoga.
In Hindu and Buddhist writings yoga is described as the only sure way of escaping the endless cycle of reincarnation and the laws of karma, thereby enabling someone to reach the Hindu and Buddhist ideas of heaven. Hindu’s great goal is to become a god.
Genesis 3:5: “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”
The physical exercises and positions along with the breathing techniques and mediation were originally developed for very spiritual and religious reasons. Some of the positions in yoga are not quite as harmless as they may appear, but are obviously of occult origin, like many other things that have occult origins.
Ouija boards, Tarot cards, Astrology signs and symbols may all seem harmless to some, but like yoga, they have an idea attached.
10) “There shall not be found among you…that useth divination (Ouija boards, tarot cards, fortune telling), or an observer of times (horoscopes), or an enchanter (Hex, voodoo) or a witch (witches, witchcraft),
11) Or a charmer (potions), or a consulter (fortune teller), or a wizard, or a necromancer (contact with the dead).”
It was Lord Krishna who introduced the ritual of yoga as a way of achieving union with the universe. Yoga means “union”. Yoga aims at bringing about the union of the person with demonic power. Ironically, while yoga in the West is, often promoted to achieve health and a better way of living; in the East, where it originated, it is more openly understood to be a way of dying. A Christian should not be taking yoga classes.
Well, Yogaville is in Virginia. As I was researching on the internet, I found this Buddhist Temple. It was in America. If you visit on a sunny day it glistens and sparkles. The colorfulness and shine are out of place in the neighborhood. The yard is surrounded by a low brick wall and every brick column is a shrine to someone who has died.
This temple was built by the local Laotian community and is an important gathering place for them. The temple is very ornate, with two sets of dragons on both sides of the steps leading to the front entrance. There are spires and golden flames on the roof, and lots of decorative columns all around the building. It was dedicated on June 13, 2009 and is known as the Lao Buddhist Temple.
Where is it located? It is in Columbus, Ohio; about 1 ½ hours by car from our church.
Forty-one years ago, Sri Swami Satchidananda bought the land in Virginia and began to build his Hindu Temple. It became the source of yoga instructors, meditation classes, and the subtle Hindu and Buddhist teachings.
The transformation of the Buddha into a Christian figure demonstrates how much the two spiritual traditions share—and reveals medieval Christian piety. The Buddha, or Siddhartha Gautama, was born to a noble family in India in the fourth or fifth century B.C. Renouncing his wealth to pursue wisdom, he founded what became one of the world’s most important spiritual traditions.
Fantastical versions of his biography with his sermons and parables exploded after his death. The stories traveled throughout Asia, reaching the frontiers of Europe by the 10th century A.D. Monks in the Byzantine Empire took the story for their own. The Roman Catholic Church made Buddha a saint! The Roman Catholic Church made Buddha, who is not a Christian, who does not claim to be a Christian, who is a leader of a rival religion, a saint! That makes the Roman Catholic Church…what?
Then there is a Laotian Buddhist Temple in Columbus, Ohio. The building was dedicated 11 years ago. Remember, Buddha is a Roman Catholic saint.
Hindu worship is represented by the “serpent.” The snake sheds his skin and is “reborn.” The Hindu sees it as reincarnation, an example of immortality. Eve was deceived by a serpent. Vishnu, brother to Siva, rests on a great snake. The “serpent” is always present as the enemy of the LORD God of Israel. And the consort of Siva is Oma.
Does anyone know where this Buddhist Temple is located?
Where is this Temple located?
It is located less than a half-hour by car from our church. It is located at 1831 Miles Road, Cincinnati, Ohio.
May our God forgive us for allowing these false religions a place in our nation.
Colossians 2:8: “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”
Mark 7:13: “Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.”
Hinduism does not condemn homosexuality, pedophilia, or infidelity, cremation, but they do attack “one god” religions. This is the reason the Christian nations of separatist Western peoples are marked for destruction. Christian people have always rejected other gods. They are Christian or nothing. This racial trait is the reason they have been condemned to death.
To be continued.
Blessed be the LORD God of Israel.
