It was an all day celebration of Fathers (6/15/14) at KRST Unity Center of Afrakan Spiritual Science (7825 S. Western Avenue, Los Angeles). KRST (Karast, Ausur)--an Egypto-African word meaning an 'enlightened' or “shining” one--an idea dating to early African mythology. One such mythology in Egyptian Spiritual Literature, thousands of years before Jesus or the formulation of the European Bible, was Chaos personified by the Goddess Neith, (Nut, Nepte, Nuk, the Egyptian Minerva), anterior to all gods--the Great Mother and the Immaculate Virgin, or female God from whom all things proceeded. She was characterized as the only God, without form and sex—the “Father-Mother”--who gave birth to itself and without fecundation (fertilization). Neith was adored world-wide under the form of a Virgin Mother who gave birth to God. To indicate a post-virgin birth moment of bliss, Ancient Egyptians depicted the original Madonna and child—Auset (Isis) with the sun-child Horus at her breast. Another myth is the Egyptian creator deity, Cneph, represented as a serpent with an egg thrusting from his mouth--just like the Ohio Serpent Mound and other places. From this egg proceeded the deity Phtha or Ptah--the creative power and 'father god,' borrowed into Hinduism as the Indian Brahma. Ptah, the universal creator god, was the male and the female primeval ocean, the father and the mother of Atum. From Ptah came the major gods, like Tehuti, of the primeval beginning. A third mythological African Truth, says Diop (African Origins): “Osiris is the god who, three thousand years before Christ, dies and rises from the dead to save men. He is humanity’s god of redemption; he ascends to heaven to sit at the right hand of his father, the great god, Ra. He is the son of God.” From Ra, there were successive incarnations until the Trinity of the Father, the Son and the Black Virgin Mother (later replaced by the Holy Spirit) appeared as Osiris, Horus, and Isis (Diop, African Origins, p. 109, 194).

But to understand how this came about, we must step back to the birth of the Divine Child Horus. He was the reincarnation of Asar (Osiris), his father. In turn, Osiris was an incarnation of the High God Ra. From this mythical dogma, the idea of divine kingship became established. This meant each king was a symbol literally of the mythical and mystically Hermetic (i.e. Tehuti) order and a reflection of the original all-pervasive light--known as the Horian Logos. This light contained universal energy coming from God’s mind and divine intelligence. In other words, it was about divine consciousness embodied in a perfected (Enlightened) human being (Ashby, African Origins, p. 408) who was thereafter immortal (Bynam, African Unconscious, p. 140, 290). A described practice of Ancient Egyptians was to impart like-kind titles of something great to individuals who were models of it. For example, Ausares is the name given to indicate the unmanifested aspect of God and those who achieved a spirituality-realized state were given the title "Ausar" (the God-Self dwelling in Man). The same practice applied to the title of Christ.

The word “Christ,” says Diop (Civilization or Barbarism, p. 312), came from the Pharaonic Egyptian expression “kher sesheta”: “he who watches over the mysteries.” Some say the "anointed Messias" is a term meaning (K) Christos, or "Christ." The Greek, “Christos,” or “Kristos” is the borrowed Kemetic, “KRST (Karast)” or H RST. Since the Greeks could not pronounce the letter H, they substituted the sound with the letters Ch which means, among the Greeks, Horus; among others, one mummified; and among the Egyptians, a being that has been Osirified. Egyptians applied “Christ” to the divinities, Osiris, Anubis, and others long before Jesus was born. Coffin Texts contained such inscriptions on wooden coffins as: Heru "comes walking on the water of his father"--a reference to discovering ones divine nature. "Christ" meant the unmanifested aspect--equated with the Father, so that the Father and Son are one. The “Karast” is a person who is anointed an 'enlightened' or “shining” individual--also known as a Heru (Hero-Christ) during his or her own lifetime. It is only when deceased that one receives the epithet 'KRST' or Ausur. From these models came, in daily living, the practice of assigning to worthy human males the honorific attachments of fatherhood, husband-hood, and manhood.
