Editorial Reviews

Review

"Suns of God" supplies vital knowledge for anyone claiming to be an authority on world religions.

Kenn Thomas -- Steamshovel Press

A must-read for any human with the courage to search for literal truth as opposed to salves... -- American Anthropological Research Foundation

Achieves a rare level of scholarship essentially proving the non-historicity of religious figures such as Krishna, Buddha and Christ. -- Tim Leedom

Amidst the chaos of Bush's War on Terror, largely founded on religious intolerance, Acharya is the voice of reason. -- Paranoia Magazine/Joan D'Arc

From the Publisher

Acharya S's books continue to move into the category of "Classics" that stand the test of time and endure through the ages. No book shelf on the history of religion would be complete without "The Christ Conspiracy" and "Suns of God."

Customer Reviews

I have seldom read a better or more interesting book.
Ted Weinstein
If one keeps an open mind and is willing to independently see truth, Acharya's books are important towards deprogramming people.
Seidr Thought Memory
Suns of God: Krishna, Buddha and Christ Unveiled, by Acharya S., is a book that can lead us in that direction.

Format: Paperback
This a big book. Make no mistake. The materials covered are also big. Big in ideologies. Acharya S. takes apart the age old dogma's piece by piece and not only states what's erroneous, but how it came to be so mistaken. These issues, from creation to judgments did not all occur in the flash of an eye, but across countless several generations of writers seeking to establish a basis for social control. You may not like what she says in Suns, but that does not make it any less factual. Those seeking not only answers, but a basis for those answers would do well to get a copy of this book. Those, however, who have made up their minds, on either side of the fence, will find very little to dispute. Acharya S. has done her work well, and has, I believe, covered the topics exceptionally well. After reaching the last page, the reader will have covered not only the history of the son of god ideology, but the reason so many religions, that may on the surface seem dissimilar, start from the very same mythology. This is a book the serious mythologist or spiritual seeker should have at their disposal.

As a former Christian minister, and perhaps more importantly as a former apologist for the faith I would like to comment on this latest book from Acharya S.

First, and what is often hardest for the faithful to accept, is that she is correct in nearly all of her statements concerning the history of organized religions, especially in the west.

Second, and perhaps equally difficult for those who prefer fantasy to reality, is that she is so direct about it. She makes no bones about her belief, or perhaps lack of belief, and although she and I do not agree on every detail- still, Acharya has pretty much outlined, at least for anyone seriously considering a leap off that fence between belief and disbelief, a required text- a primer of common sense if you wish. I have read the reviews and it would seem that you either loved the book- or hated it. There is no way anyone, regardless of how faithful to their religion they might be, can rate this book any less than 4 stars, if for nothing more than the viable research it involved. One major problem that many find with adherents to religion is their black and white- all or nothing approaches to pretty much everything. They are not open to new ideas or new beliefs- they have a vested interest in staying the course. Recently I was asked to be part of a panel formed to investigate the accuracy of some of the Gnostic texts that were voted out of the official Bible. For purposes of historical and social accuracy, many panel members were using the accepted Bible. This I felt was completely wrong headed- as anyone who sees the Bible as the final edict of historical fact is already refusing to accept or acknowledge any other authority, for example the writers Tacitus and Philo of Alexandria.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Acharya S is a wonderful scholar who thoroughly ferrets out a picture of the truth behind the world's religions. To a large extent, this truth is the symbolic mythology of astro-theology, which predates all major existing religious belief systems. Acharya S provides extensive references and documentation of her contentions, exposing the lack of historicity for the personalities associated with major religions. One one level, Jesus, Buddha, & Krishna, as well as other deities less significant to our modern era, are personified symbols of the Sun. Reading this book along with her prior Christ Conspiracy is a double whammy that no religion defender will ever attempt to directly challenge. Free your mind from literal acceptance of religious myths and plow through the deep scholarly soil of Acharya's Suns of God! Then learn to connect with your real spiritual essence independent of mythology characters or astral spirits and thought forms who take on the mythic character roles. After all, the Sun itself has been the symbol for the masculine aspect of the Supreme Source/Creator, so we can all learn to see the spiritual "Sun" of God as part of our own essence rather than misinterpreting the astro-theological drama of the Sun, Moon, Planets, & Zodiac that is encoded in religions. I highly recommend Suns of God for its breadth of information and integration of important ideas and evidence. There is an increasing flow of revelations arising about the topic of astrotheology and the secret wisdom, symbolism, and secret society/mystery school tradition - this book is one of the best of the genre.

Recently, I have been involved in research into a number of aspects of religion, in particular how it has been beneficial and how it has been harmful. As to the harm religion has caused, one need only reflect on the Crusades, the Inquisition and Islamic jihads, to realize that hundreds of millions of people have died because religion gives people a basis (an irrational basis) for killing people they don't like. Wouldn't it be great if humankind had a way of understanding religion and religious belief that would increase our tolerance for differing religious views and encourage us to stop the killing? Suns of God: Krishna, Buddha and Christ Unveiled, by Acharya S., is a book that can lead us in that direction. Regardless of whether one is quite religious or completely without religion, there is much in this book that will cause any reasonable person to conclude that we share common ground, and very interesting ground at that.

In America today, where Christianity is dominant, almost everyone believes that Jesus Christ was present in the flesh 2,000 years ago in an around Jerusalem, that he was the son of God, born of a virgin, who performed miracles, was crucified, died on the cross, was entombed, then came alive and ascended to Heaven. Further, Jesus died to expiate the sins of mankind so that men could be absolved of their sins and make it to Heaven themselves. Quite a familiar story. Remarkably, most Americans (and probably most Europeans) believe that the Jesus story is the only one of its kind. Not so. The same essential story was told many times in many different locations over hundreds, even thousands, of years before the Jesus story developed. Why and how that happened is the subject of Suns of God.
