THE HOLIEST THE HOLIEST BOOK, HOLIEST ONE
"These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread." (Genesis 9:19)
<1>The three sons of Noah are symbols of the new generation. The different types of humans as we know them have been created after the flood of Noah. They will be described later (also read the books The Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth and Commentaries on Prophecies in Daniel, Period of Intellectual Domination).
"And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:" (Genesis 9:20)
<2>Agriculture, with new improved seed, still was possible. That is why the civilization based on agriculture for this new generation started around 12,000 years ago.
"And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent." (Genesis 9:21)
<3>Ham was attached to the small things related to the body.
"And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness." (Genesis 9:23)
"And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him." (Genesis 9:24)
<5>Noah noticed this difference between his sons, "And Noah awoke from his wine."
"And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren." (Genesis 9:25)
<6>Noah realized a person with the qualities of Ham is one who is earth-bound. So he will be cursed and "a servant of servants."
<7>In truth, the three symbolic sons of Noah represent three different kinds of humans on earth. <8>Those who are in the physical level of consciousness (when the satisfaction of physiological and safety needs are the prime object of life, and those who try to dominate matter by physical vigor) are symbolized by Ham -- Shudras (laborers) and Ksattriyas (warriors). <9>Those who are in the mental level of consciousness (those who are interested in dominating matter through the mind or commercial domination) are symbolized by Japheth -- Vipras (intellectuals) and Vaeshyas (businessmen). <10>Those who are in the spiritual (Soul) level of consciousness (true spiritual aspirants and those who become seers and great spiritual beings) are symbolized by Shem. They are different than intellectual spiritualists who bring superstitions and suffering to humanity by taking the Scriptures at their apparent meanings without understanding their symbolic meanings.
<11>He who creates characteristics of all these three types through many incarnations is a Paravipra.
<12>Those who become real spiritualists and earn spiritual truth and powers (sons of Shem) are exalted over the other types, and those who try to understand or exploit the manifested universe through their intellects are exalted over those who neither try to understand the truth of the spiritual world nor the physical world. <13>That is why Noah made Canaan (the child of Ham, symbolizing one who is earth-bound) "a servant of servants."
<15>The people who are earth-bound should be his (symbolic Japheth) servants. So the person who is bound to his physiological and safety needs will be the servant of Shem and the servant of Japheth. He will be the servant of the servants.
<16>However, this explanation should not become a reason to create a caste system, because there can be different types of people within any one family. The purpose of this categorizing is not for humans to look down on each other; the experience in each type is necessary for a Soul to progress toward perfection. <17>In fact, a Paravipra (true leader of humanity) is one who creates abilities of all these five types and is able to manifest them and understand people in each level. Otherwise he will be bound to one type and will create suffering for others.
"And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years." (Genesis 9:28)
"And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years:and he died." (Genesis 9:29)
<18>Physically Noah died, but not spiritually.Next
