The Battle between Horus and Set / Diwali

NB: This article can be found after the following introductory passages.


Before you read this article, please note that, from 1996, I (Pari, the author of this article) had begun to see numerous visions. I was trying to understand what was happening to me. As I was trying to understand this, I began writing all the articles which can be found in this website. Each article is a continuation of the earlier one. So what I had explained in earlier articles were not explained in subsequent articles. This had also allowed me to keep developing what I have to explain. After I had written numerous articles, people were asking me as to which articles they had to read in order to understand something or the other. Thus, in 2015, I began to write books. All the knowledge which a person needs, so as to understand the contents of a book, are given in the book. Thus, a person could understand the contents of a book without having to revert to other articles or books. However, a better understanding could be had through reading the other books. I had also begun writing my first book “Holographic Universe : An Introduction” because I began to have a good understanding on the structure of the Holographic Universe through experiences, guidance from God, research, etc. 

It should be remembered that my articles were written while I was trying to understand what was happening to me. So, the emphasis in the articles may have been on my own roles (due to the afterlife of my past births). In my books, I concentrate on just explaining knowledge and not really on giving an explanation on my own role. 

It should be noted that since there are so many articles, I find it very difficult to update the articles. So there may be information in them which has not been updated. I try my best to keep my eBooks updated. 

Anyway, to have a better understand of what has been said in this article, read all my earlier articles. Begin by reading the first article which is numbered as No.1 at my List of Articles. Then, re-read this article to have a better understanding. It should be noted that all my articles were written based on time being cyclic.

The Battle between Horus and Set / Diwali

There is one story which can be found in many legendary stories. The setting may be changed depending on who's telling the story. The characters are given different names. The story itself might get slighly changed. However, fundamentally, it's basically the same story of the 'good' and the 'bad' with the 'good' finally becoming victorious. Thus, one can find a version of the Osiris myth in every culture. It relates to how a just king is killed by his cruel brother, only to be avenged by the prince who follows in his father's footsteps. This relates to what happens in the cycle and the Confluence Age. At the beginning of the Copper Age, divinity is lost and vices come into existence. It is this which is represented by the 'bad' killing off the 'good'. Then, in the Confluence Age, the children of God kill the vices off and become victorious. This is represented by the battles between the good and the bad where the good will become victorious. The final battle between the good and the bad in the story relates to how God gets the Heavenly world created and the battle between the good and the bad comes to an end with the good becoming victorious (at the end of the story). In some stories, the dead king is rewarded for his upright ways and gains great reward in the next life. This is the rewards which is received in heaven. This is basically the Law of Karma which also applies in the final battle between the good and the bad. The Egyptian mummies' life after death for immortality basically is a 'call-out to God' for the return of Heaven where immortality can be enjoyed.

The Story of Orisis, Horus and Set.

(NB: all those in brackets are explanations given for the legendary story based on BK knowledge, etc).

This is a tale of the Before-Time (at the end of the previous cycle) and of the next Golden Age, when the gods walked upon the earth. Long before the grandfather of the Egyptian Pharaoh's grandfather was born, Osiris the great-grandson of Ra sat upon the throne of the gods, ruling over the living world as Ra did over the gods. (Ra ruling over the gods is the time in the Confluence Age when God rules over the deity souls. The children of God attain immortality in the Confluence Age and then get reborn in Heaven, the new world on earth. Osiris represents the soul who has attained immortality in the Confluence Age. Heaven is the Kingdom of God. In the Confluence Age, God was our King, giving us instructions on what to do. Then, in Heaven, which is the Kingdom of God, the divine human kings give the instructions and God takes his rest for half a cycle, during the Golden and Silver Ages. The Pharaohs of the Copper Age tried to continue this system but body-consciousness and confusion, because Man had lost the immortal state/ the soul-conscious state, had made Man act based on confusion and the vices).

At the beginning of the Golden Age, Osiris was the first Pharaoh of the Golden Age, and his Queen, Isis, was the first Queen. (They are the Hindu Lakshmi and Narayan of the Golden Age. Isis also represents the soul that attains immortality in the Confluence Age). Osiris and Isis ruled for many years together in the Golden Age, and the world was still young at that time and so Grandmother Death was not as harsh as she is now (The souls of the Golden Age enjoyed immortality and so they knew of which body they were in and of which body they will be going into during the next birth. The soul willing leaves the old body and takes a new one when it is time to do so. Thus, the people of the Golden Age do not die, they just leave the body. Thus, Grandmother Death was seen as not being harsh on them).

Osiris' ways were just and upright. He made sure that Maat remained in balance and that the law was kept. And so Maat smiled upon the world. (Maat represents nature, the World Drama, righteousness etc. In the Golden Age, everything was running in its perfect state. Since the people were divine, there was no need for police etc. The Pharaohs of the Golden Age would be able to rule without any problems. The powerful soul-conscious state of the divine kings of the Golden Age also helped keep the people and nature pure).

Everyone praised Osiris and Isis, and peace reigned all over the world, for this was the Golden Age. Later, proud and noble Set, the brother of Osiris, became uneasy and unsettled. (Then, at the end of the Silver Age, trouble began.) Set wanted the throne of Osiris and he desired to have Isis (This is similar to the story of Ravana having desires for Sita and then capturing her. But then, Set also involves the role of the Copper Aged Reptilians/Mapmakers who are involved with attaining immortality for the birth-roles. One must be able to distinguish when Set refers to the vices/Ravana and when Set refers to the Copper Aged Reptilians/Mapmakers). Set wanted power over the living world and he wanted to take it from his brother. His dark mind plotted to kill Osiris and take everything from him. So he built a box and he inscribed the box with wicked magic that would prevent anyone who entered it from escaping. Set, then, took the box to the great feast of the gods. When Osiris was drunk through drinking beer, Set challenged Osiris to a contest of strength. Each of them would enter the box, and attempt to use their strength to break the box open. Osiris agreed and entered the box first. As soon as he entered it, Set poured molten lead into the box. Osiris tried to escape, but the wicked magic did not allow him to escape and so he died. Set then picked up the box and hurled it into the Nile where it floated away. (This represents the end of the divine world and the beginning of the Copper Age when the vices/Ravan and the Copper Aged Reptilians/Mapmakers rule). Set claimed the throne of Osiris for himself and demanded that Isis should be his Queen. All the other gods did not dare to stand against him because he had killed Osiris and they feared that he could easily kill them too. The Great God Ra did not do anything to help them because Ra mourned the death of Osiris. (This basically meant that God could not do anything about what was happening at the beginning of the Copper Age because it had to happen as per the World Drama). Darkness had set into the world. Set was bad while his brother, Osiris, was good. Set was cruel and unkind. He did not care for the balance of Maat, nor did he care for the children of the gods. While Set ruled, Egypt (the world) got divided through wars and there was lawlessness there. The people cried out to Ra, but Ra did not help them. Ra's heart was hardened by grief, and so he would not listen. Only Isis remembered the people and she tried to do something (This relates to how the people of the Copper Age create spiritual systems etc, for the calling-out process, in order to get back the heavenly world which they had just lost. Then, in the Confluence Age, all those who play the role of Isis/Parvati help mankind through using God's knowledge and their power of yoga with God). Only Isis was not afraid of Set. She searched for the box containing her beloved husband, in the Nile river (This represents how the deity souls, from the Copper Age onwards, start seeking the truth that will finally lead us into the Confluence Age again. Then, the deity souls will help sprinkle the waters of knowledge on others to help the other deity souls who are spiritually dead). Finally Isis finds the box. The box was stuck in a bush that had turned into a mighty tree because the power of Osiris was still there in him, though he was dead (This represents how we will keep coming back into the Confluence Age where the mighty task of God gets done as per the drama. This task will get done again and again during each cycle of time. It has to happen, as per the Drama, and so it keeps happening. Until it happens, it is as if the potential to be helped by mighty God is always there because we are the deity souls). Isis opened the box and cried on seeing the body of Osiris. She took the box back to Egypt and placed it in the house of the gods. She transformed into a bird and flew around the body of Osiris while singing a song of mourning (Isis turning into a bird, basically represents how she attained the flying stage that is enjoyed in the next Confluence Age). Then, Isis came down and cast a spell on Osiris. The spirit of the dead Osiris entered into her and she conceive. Isis gave birth to a son who was to avenge his father's death (This story is similar to the Hindu scripture stories where deities give birth to other deities who kill off the 'bad' and become victorious. This is basically a portrayal of how new souls are brought into gyan by the existing Confluence Aged souls until God's work of creating heaven on earth gets done. The new Confluence Aged souls would also be victorious in the battle against the vices. Osiris also represents God using instruments on earth. So, all the new Confluence Aged souls are all the children of God). Isis named her son as Horus, and she hid him on a far away island so that Set would not know of his existence. (This is similar to how Krishna was hid away until the time came when he fought the Demons and became victorious. All this represents what happens in the Confluence Age too. The Confluence Aged souls are kept in hiding until they are ready to do world service on the world stage. There is also a similar story relating to Hercules/Heracles in the Greek/Roman legendary stories). Isis then asked Thoth to help her. Thoth was wise and he knows all secrets. (NB: In Egyptian mythology, Thoth is the god of wisdom, knowledge, writing, magic, time and the moon. He was a representation of all those which were related to the knowledge given by God in the Confluence Age. Thoth represents God's role in the Confluence Age, relating to wisdom, knowledge etc). Isis asked Thoth to help bring Osiris back to life through magic. Thoth, who is the lord of knowledge, searched through his magic. He had to do something that would remake Osiris so that his spirit would recognize him and rejoin. Thoth and Isis together created the Ritual of Life for this. The Ritual of Life allows people to live forever when they die (This basically represents how God's Confluence Aged knowledge can be used to give the deity souls immortality). But before Thoth could make the magic work, Set discovered what was happening. So, to keep himself in power, he stole the body of Osiris and tore it into many pieces, scattering them throughout Egypt. He did this to make sure that Osiris would never be reborn. (This represents the battle that goes on, in the Confluence Age, to make sure that the vices remain in control. Each effort-maker is silently battling within himself to remain in the virtuous soul-concious state. However, sometimes, they lose the battle and the vices gain control again.) Isis did not lose hope, she requested help and guidance from her sister Nephthys, to find the pieces of Osiris' body. They searched for a long time bringing each piece that they found to Thoth so that he might work magic upon it. When all the pieces were together, Thoth went to Anubis, lord of the dead and asked Anubis to sew the pieces back together. The pieces of Osiris's body were treated with preservatives to prevent decay and it was wrapped in linen. After that the Ritual of Life was cast on it. (All this is a representation of how the children of God, in the Confluence Age, together, help God to give His children immortality through the knowledge given by God in the Confluence Age. However, the last part of the story representing how Osiris' body was mummified represents a few more things. The first is of how the Copper Aged Reptilians/Mapmakers began giving importance to mummification. The second is of how the BKs began giving so much importance to the corporeal body of Brahma Baba so as to remember the important role which he plays in the Confluence Age. It also represents how the deity souls were giving importance to the ancient King of Bharath in the Copper Age because he has to be helped so that he, as Brahma Baba, can be used by God to give the Confluence Aged spiritual knwoledge at the end. It also represents how the deity souls, who had come into the Confluence Age, were trying to help Brahma Baba until God began giving the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge through him). Osiris' spirit entered into him again when his mouth was opened and he lived again. However, someone who has died, even if he was a god, cannot live in the land of the living. So Osiris had to go to the spiritual abode called Duat. The Duat is the region through which the dead Pharaohs' souls travel through, after death. It was the starting point of the Pharaoh's journey back to the stars from where he came. The Duat separates the land of the living from the land of the dead. Anubis gave his throne, to this region, to Osiris and so Osiris became the lord of this region called Duat. (The life of Osiris entering him represents God entering Brahma Baba and enabling him to live his new spiritual life. Then, God and Brahma Baba play their role together in the Confluence Aged subtle region. God and Brahma Baba are still guiding the deity souls from this Confluence Aged spiritual dimension. One has to die a living death to come into this Confluence Aged subtle region. The Confluence Aged souls are self-sovreigns and Raja Yogis. So they were represented as Pharoahs/kings. But they were also portrayed as pharoahs because the souls were pharoahs/kings in the Copper Age when this myth was created. It has also got to be remembered that those Copper Aged kings were involved with the after-life or immortality for their birth-roles. So, those past births and their memories will still be emerging when we come into the Confluence Age. God also uses these memories to explain what had happened). There Osiris passes judgment over the souls of the dead. Through the judgements passed, the good people go to the Blessed Land, while the wicked people were sent to be consumed by Ammit. In Egyptian mythology, Ammit was a female demon who was known as the"devourer of the dead". (Since the deity souls were always portrayed as instruments of God, Osiris also represents God. Osiris passing judgement represents the purification process in the Confluence Age. A good Confluence Aged spiritual effort-maker will get purified to enjoy a more heavenly life, in the Golden Age. Those who have passed their last test-paper will also not experience any punishment on Judgement Day. Those who have not made enough effort-making will suffer on Judgement Day. Those who have not done any effort-making at all will not take a birth in the heavenly world in the first half cycle. They will be born in Hell, in the second half cycle). When Set heard that Osiris lived again, he became angry. However, since Osiris could not return to the land of the living, his anger subsided and he continued to rule in the world of the living. (This represents how the vices continue to exist in the old world when the purification is taking place in Confluence Aged subtle regions). Set thought that he would sit on the throne of the gods for all time, in the world of the living. When Set got to know that Horus, the son of Osiris and Isis, had grown into a man on the island, Set sent many serpents and demons to kill Horus. Horus defeated them (This represents how as the Confluence Aged deity souls become more and more powerful, the vices attack them more and more fiercely. This part of the myth is similar to how Krishna, in the Hindu scripture stories, had to fight the demons that were sent to kill him. Even Hercules, of the Greek legendary stories, had to fight demons in a similar situation). When Horus was ready, his mother Isis gave him great magic to use against Set, and Thoth gave him a magic knife (The magic is the power of yoga and the magic knife is God's Confluence Aged knowledge. Both of these can be used to kill off the vices. Such stories of the gods being endowed with instruments are also there in the Hindu scripture stories. Even Hercules was given instruments to fight the demons and he was taught how to use those instruments). Horus sought Set and challenged him for the throne. Set and Horus fought for many days. In the end, Horus defeated Set and castrated him (This refers to the final battle which takes place as we become victorious in transforming the world into the divine world. This fierce battle will be last battle to be fought. This part of the myth is similar to the final fight which took place between Rama and Ravana in which Rama finally becomes victorious. Other Hindu gods are also shown fighting and becoming victorious in the last battle. Even Hercules' final fight refers to this). Horus could not kill Set because spilling the blood of his uncle would make him no better than his uncle. Thus, Set maintained his claim to the throne, while Horus was claiming the throne as the son of Osiris. (Though we are victorious in the final battle, the vices will emerge again at the end of the Silver Age. The the vices cannot to completely destroyed for good; though they can be removed from the face of the earth for half the cycle.). The gods began to fight amongst themselves. Some supported Horus while others supported Set. When the battle got nasty, Banebdjetet interfered and demanded that the gods end this struggle peacefully or Maat would be imbalanced further. (This represent how nature etc will get more imbalanced or chaotic at the end just as the vices of Man was at its worst state. It also represents how chaos would be at it's most extreme state at the end of the cycle. It represents how nature, the World Drama etc has to be changed by bringing in the new Golden Age where peace, righteousness etc prevail). Banebdjetet was the Ram-headed God of Arbitration. He was like a God-father figure to the young Horus. Banebdjetet told the gods to consult Neith on the subject of who should have custody of the Egyptian throne. (NB: Egypt basically refers to the world, just as Lanka refers to the world.) Neith was the goddess of war and weaving. She was also a creation deity, who had both male and female attributes. She was a wise goddess, to whom the other gods came to if they could not resolve their own disputes. Neith told them that Horus was the rightful heir to the throne. Then, Horus cast Set into the darkness where he lives until today. And Horus began ruling and watching over the people who lived. He also gives guidance to the Pharaoh while he lives, and his father Osiris watches over the people in the next life. (This relates to the end when the Golden Age begins).

The battle between Horus and Set will continue again and again. (This represents how the cycle of time and the World Drama keeps repeating. So the battle between Horus and Set will keep repeating. This part of the story also represents how we keep fighting battles in the Confluence.). When Horus wins, Maat is upheld and the world is at peace. When Set wins, the world is in turmoil. However, the dark times of Set will not last forever, and the bright rays of Horus will shine over the world again. But during the last days, Horus and Set will fight the last battle for the world (This is at the end of the cycle). Horus will defeat Set forever, and Osiris will be able to return to this world. On that day, the Day of Awakening, all the tombs shall open and the just dead shall live again as we do, and all sorrow shall pass away forever (This represents what happens in the Confluence Age at the very end. After this the souls who had helped God, at the end, to get the heavenly world created will get born in Heaven where there will be no sorrow. The Day of Awakening is in the Confluence Age at the end of the cycle, i.e. the time when the heavenly world gets created. This time, at the end, will end with all souls returning back to the Soul World. Then, some will come back down into the new Golden Age so as to take their birth in Heaven on earth. A distinction has to be made between the Heaven on earth and the heavenly subtle region, which may also have been referred to in the legendary stories.)
