On April 26, 2015 nearby to Kathmandu, Nepal, along the continental plate separating Nepal from Kashmir, the land began to rumble 17 km south of Kodari, Nepal and a 6.7 magnitude earthquake struck, according to the U.S. Geological Survey at 7:09:08.90 UTC and devastation reigned in one of the most iconic and glorious worlds of the ancient Buddhist Chaityas. The above Temple of Swayambhunath nearby to the epicenter at Kathmandu. Here this 2000 year old stupa is one of Buddhism’s more famous religious centers in Nepal.
Sitting on the top of a small knoll just south of the Capital city is the Monkey Temple known for its large menagerie of monkey living to the northwest of Swayambhunath whose name means self-manifested Lord Swayambhu. According to the traditions of the Buddhists, in the ancient days, the Kathmandu Valley was inundated under a vast lake revered as the home of Vipashwi Buddha, believed to have sown lotus which grew up to become giant Jeweled Lotus.
According to another Buddhist Lost Israelite tradition, the Manjushree took his sword and ripped a chasm through the lake that once filled the Kathmandu Valley. At that time Swayambhu was a modest stupa with a gorgeous view of the foothills leading up to the Himalayan Mountains to the north.
Yet after numerous earthquakes caused significant destruction in the land, the stupa was plastered and whitewashed. At the main entrance was a rising elevation of 365 stone steps which all pilgrims had to climb to reach the temple beyond. At the far end of the stupa a road for cars was built to reach the southwest entrance to the temple.
As you will notice in the daytime and nighttime pictures, the “eyes of Buddha” are painted with eyebrows, distinctly portraying Lord Buddha watching over the entire valley as a symbol of unity.
The Bhimsen Tower is reputed to have been built by a great warrior called Bhimsen. This nine story stands at the center of the capital city of Kathmundu a haven for the massive populous of Nepal and renown as one of the architectural Great Wonders of the World.
With the collapse of this revered tower, for the second time, will it be rebuilt? Symbolism is strong in Buddhism, and each tower or stupa has its own symbolism. Thousands of stupas are scattered over the countryside, but each one has its own religious purpose in a land where idealism is more important than realism.
Saturday's catastrophic earthquake in Nepal occurred because of two converging tectonic plates: the India plate subducting under the overriding Eurasia plate to the north according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
What is little comprehended, the prophetic future that lays before our lives today portend that the Continent of India will continue to slide under the Himalayas and the Eurasian Plate to the north. The affect upon the densest populated continent on Planet Earth is staggering to consider.
Then we have to consider whether this Nepalese Earthquake was an “Act of G-d” or a part of the military “acts of man” seeking hegemony over Planet Earth using advance weaponry called HAARP or Scalar as documented in the Destination Yisrael article, titled, “The Devastation of Planet Earth by ‘HAARP and Scalar Earthquake War’ Weapons”
As Benjamin Fulford wrote in his article titled, “Pentagon plays military card against China as Washington D.C. struggles for cash” when he wrote the following:
Benjamin Fulford – “The bankruptcy of the West was postponed again last week with fudged accounting keeping both Washington D.C. and Greece (therefore the EU) from defaulting as high stakes negotiations over a new financial system continue.
To bolster is bargaining position, the Pentagon is undertaking some large scale moves against China. Pentagon sources say last week’s earthquake in Nepal was generated using high energy electronic waves. The aim was to send a message to both China and India prior to US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter’s planned trip to India next month, the sources say. The basic message was “only the Pentagon can defend India against China.
This demonstration was part of a concerted push by the Pentagon to get India, Russia, China and Japan to see recent Chinese moves in the South China Sea as evidence China is an aggressor that needs to be contained. As a part of this push, the Pentagon is about to announce an end to its arms embargo against Vietnam and the construction of 8 US military bases in the Philippines, the sources continued. The Pentagon sources say that deep seated Russian fears of the “yellow peril” are coming to the surface again and that Russia will cooperate with them against China militarily.
The background to all this bluster is the fact that Washington D.C., the Pentagon’s current paymaster, failed to make a payment due to the rest of the world at the end of March (as mentioned in this newsletter last week). Now the corporate media and the US Treasury Department have confirmed the US has been pretending its debts have stopped increasing since March 15th.”
Tectonic plates are the large, thin, and somewhat rigid plates that move relative to one another in relationship with the outer surface of the Earth. Plates are always slowly moving, but occasionally they get stuck as their edges bind up due to the friction between each other. When the stress on the edge overcomes the friction, there is an earthquake that releases energy in waves that travel through the Earth's crust and cause the shaking of the crust of the earth that we feel.
Scientists for decades have been watching closely the movement of the Indian-Eurasian Plates for the Indian Plate is converging and subducting or pushing under the Eurasian Plate upon what sit the largest and highest chain of mountains in the world; the Himalayan Mountain Range.
Actually the India Plate is converging under the Eurasia Plate at a rate of about 2 inches per year; moving to the North-northeast. In doing so, it is uplifting the Himalayan Mountain range higher and higher while at the same time the Indian Plate is disappearing. The earthquake that occurred on Saturday, April 25, 2015, was only 50 miles away to the northeast of the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu.

The majority of the earth-changing events it appears are not caused by the G-d of Israel, but by G-d withdrawing His Divine Presence and allowing the forces of HaSatan, the forces of darkness to take some control over Planet Earth. As we even look closer we perceive that HaShem, the G-d of Israel is allowing modern man see the ultimate devastation of his own search for power, greed, and control.
Deaths quickly mounted as deaths in India and Bangladesh were first to report. The government quickly met under the rule of the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The first reports were 35 deaths in India. By 24 hours, the number had quickly escalated to over 2,000 death on the international press. The tremors were felt as far as Pakistan in the northwest and the Bangladesh to the northeast.
Nepal and India were not the only areas that felt the impact of the earthquake for it caused an avalanche on Mount Everest 100 miles to the northeast leaving 8 reported deaths plus another five mountain climbers in Tibet. As tweeted mountaineer Alex Gavan: “Running for my life from my tent. Unhurt. Many many people up on the mountain.”
Back in the city of Latipur, the Patan Durbar Square, with its unique floors tiled with red brick is recognized as one of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. As the adjacent picture reveals, this landmark in Latipur has been severely damaged.
What was most unique, as reported by the Associated Press’s Seth Borenstein, a week earlier over 50 earthquake and social scientists were in the city of Kathmandu, Nepal seeking to outline plans to transform this region to a more quake resistant zone. Then came the repeat of the “Big One” which struck in 1934 when the entire city was leveled. They knew that they were racing against the clock but they didn’t know when, or if what they feared would truly strike.
They had already calculated that with the intense poverty, congestion and overdevelopment in the city that according to the research with the US Geological Survey, as US Geological Survey seismologist David Walk estimated, that the severe shaking of an earthquake that would lead to 10-30 deaths per million in California would instead in Nepal lead to 1,000 or more deaths in Nepal. If such and earthquake were to occur in Pakistan, India, Iran, and China then upwards to 10,000 deaths would occur per million population.

Seismologist James Jackson, head of the earth sciences department at the University of Cambridge in England, told the AP that he didn't expect such a huge earthquake to hit so soon, but experts were warning that something like it was possible.
Not only is Nepal on top of a natural seismic fault, but local infrastructure of the cities is so poorly built to resist such earthquakes. that the tremors would can lead to far more casualties than they would in other places across the world. US Geological Survey seismologist David Wald estimated to the AP that the same level of severe shaking would lead to 10 to 30 deaths per million residents in California, but kill 1,000 or more in Nepal and up to 10,000 in parts of Pakistan, India, Iran, and China.
Yet there is more to the anticipation of an apocalyptic future than the evidence of Divine Intent. Yet, why would the G-d of Israel have any interest in Nepal? Are not his people that He intends to save and move to the restored land of Promise include the Jews of the House of Judah and the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel?
Well, let us consider the facts of history now unfolding that the era of the Buddha Mundi, Prince Saddithartha was also the same era that the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel were traversing across Eurasia through the region to the east of the Black and the Caspian Seas. Would it not be amazing to discover that in these same regions that Buddhism began to flourish?
Nepal's religious history has over the millenniums been shaped by its geographic isolation, its cultural diversity and its many ethnic groups. Then we discover that more than 80% of the population of Nepal is Hindu, a religion that was given birth to by Judaism and the apostasy of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel along with smaller numbers of Lost Israelite Buddhists (9%), Muslim descendants of Ismael son of Abraham and half-brother of Isaac (4.4%), and Nazorean Christians (about 1%) once a branch of Orthodox Judaism.
Let us read a little of the multi-documented research of Destination Yisrael that truly the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel that even in their apostasy and their abomination of the Holy Name of G-d that they did give to the indigenous people a higher level of spirituality. As documented in the first article of the series, “The Lost Ten Tribed Israelites were the First Primitive Buddhists” titled, “The Oldest Buddhist shrine holds clues to the Buddha Sakya Mundi; a Lost Israelite Prince's Birth Place” we read:
Destination Yisrael – “Up along the border of Nepal and Northeastern India is an ancient town called Lumbini. Here is believed to be the birthplace of Buddha, the ancient spiritual leader of Buddhism. The archeological historical history of this region goes back to the days of 1300 BCE. This was the era of the Hebrew Judges, between the days of the Great Exodus by the Children of Israel from Egypt about 1585 BCE, the era of the Israelite army of Joshua the Mighty conquering of the Canaanite fortified towns by the 12 tribes of Israel in 1545 BCE, until the United Kingdom of Kings David and Solomon about 1000 BCE.
There in this region, UNESCO has been conducting archeological excavations at the Maya Devi Temple, sponsored by the Japanese-Funds-in-Trust. Towards the end of the excavation period, the archeologists have uncovered a continuous layer of religious cultic sites all the way down to its earliest era; a simple timber railed enclosure that was stated to be a religious shrine as early as the 6th century BCE. Afterwards there was constructed an early brick platform and later brick temple during the reign of the famous 4th century BCE Indian Buddhist Emperor, Ashoka the Great of the Maurya Dynasty, who ruled over the Indian subcontinent from 269-232 BCE.
Ashoka is recognized as one of the greatest of India’s emperors of all times. It was he, who after an imperial conquest to conquer his most powerful political rivals, the State of Kalinga, Ashoka reflected upon this bitter and destructive war that left 100,000 deaths and 150,000 deportees. In an enlightened state of consciousness, he began a slow conversion to the principles and lifestyle of the Buddha Mundi.
Yet, this was not just a personal mission, but it became a spiritual quest for all of his peoples that lived in his empire that spread from ancient Khorasan, where the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel were sent into exile in the provinces of Sistan and Balochistan in modern day Afghanistan and eastern Iran, throughout the Hindu Kush Mountains of Northern Afghanistan, to modern day, Bangladesh, the Indian State of Assam eastwards and southwards towards Northern Kerata and Andhra Pradesh. This vast imperial region was ruled with his imperial capitals located at Taxila, Ujjain and Pataliputra.
Even today, the historical birth of Buddha is unclear but as we shall see, it’s unclear because it is not historically acceptable that the roots of the Buddha Mundi who grew up in Nepal and became an “Enlightened One” was actually born from the genetic loins of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel. Even today, the archeologists still dispute the date of Buddha’s birth where the UNESCO website recognizes his birth to be 623 BCE other scholars are pushing that date later to the dates between 448 to 368 BCE.
According to the archeologists excavating this ancient site beneath a 3rd century Ashokan Buddhist temple, to their surprise the most ancient and primitive of all the deposition layers was the discovery of a timbered shrine that appeared to be open to the heavens. This was like the famous ancient rock monument in Britain called Stonehenge that is now recognized as an ancient observatory of the starry heavens. This is much like the Temple of King Solomon that was constructed to be an observatory to calculate for the 12-Tribed Empire of Kings David and Solomon the exact seasons for the festival of the L-rd in Jerusalem.
Even the classic historians, as we shall soon see recognized the birth of the Supreme Buddha to be from the 7th to the 6th century BCE. This is not more than a hundred years after the Northern Ten Tribes of the House of Israel were exiled to the land of Media, or ancient Khorasan. This region included eastern Iran, western, southern and eastern Afghanistan and also western Pakistan that in the ancient days was part of the Continent of India. Today, nearby to the Ashokan period Buddhist Temple, these same archeologists are now excavating the village of Lumbinigame, the oldest named village in South Asia that was occupied from the 1300 BCE era to the 9th century CE.
Lumbini, the famous site in Nepal of the birth of the Buddha Mundi, is located along the subtropical chain of forests, marshlands and grasslands that traverse the border of Nepal and India. This is along the Siwalik Range of the Himalaya Mountains. It is one of four historical sites identified with Buddha’s life; Lumbini, where he was born, Gaya, where the Divine enlightened his mind, Sarnath, where Buddha began first to preach and at Kusinagara, where he died.
So classic to our understanding of the G-d of Israel, even though it was His Divine Will that exiled the Lost Ten Tribes for abominating His Holy Name and scattered them from the Koreas in the East to Ireland in the West, the G-d of Israel never left them; He remained hidden from them until His destined time for them to be reclaimed would come when the restoration process for the redemption of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel will begin.
Their final destiny will be in the restoration of Klal Yisrael (All Israel) in what the Jewish sages call the “World to Come.” To consider anything else, would cast blame upon the Holy One of Israel for abandoning part of His chosen people rather than completing the prophetic Divine Plan of Redemption.
Our lack of comprehension comes in part because we fail to understand the difference between the mind of the Oriental in the East and the mind of the Occidental in the West. One is pragmatic and rational, the other is ideological and mystical.
As we look back over the archons of time, we can still see the footprint of the Divine One, called the Ikvot Meshicha (footsteps of the Messiah) walking alongside His chosen though rebellious children; watching and caring for His own. He guided and directed them all the while calling and whistling to them to come home, with the words, “I’m here – though I am hidden, come search for Me!”
We have now learned that Prince Siddhartha (Buddha Mundi) Gautama’s father was the ruler of the Sakya people in Nepal and “Sakya” was the Persian name for the “sons of Isaac”. His mother, was Queen Maya, who was the daughter to the King’s brother.
There the young Lost Israelite Prince Siddhartha grew up from royal Israelites roots, like Moses, the crown prince of Egypt who lived in an era of royal extravagance, and became a famous general for the Egyptian king and conquered the Nubians to the south in Ethiopia.
Siddhartha Gautama was given in marriage, as was the custom of the people, to a sixteen year old girl, his cousin, by the name of Yasodhara, and then by the orders of the king, his father, King Suddhodana of Kapilavastu, Prince Siddhartha was sent to live a life of total seclusion and isolation in one of three royal palaces.
About the age of twenty-nine, he left his secluded ascetic life, when he ventured into the real world. There he first confronted the sufferings of his peoples. It so overwhelmed him that he left the royal palace, gave up his claim as royal heir to the kingdom, his royal life, and then returned to an ascetic life of which he sought to help his people by teaching them how to relieve universal human suffering by seeking and living a life of peace.
In essence, did the G-d of Israel give the Lost Israelites a gift; a gift of a Buddha messiah that would also be the link to Lost Israelite Buddhists; a pathway of enlightenment so that their future pathway of redemption will be assured at the end of days?” Is the G-d of Israel involved in the destruction and devastation of the land of Buddhism today?”
Within hours of the 2015 Nepal Earthquake, pledges of aid began pouring in from lands around the world; $10 million from the US, $7.6 million from the UK, and $3.9 million from Australia. Let us notice that those providing the most aid were from lands inhabited by the descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel.
Yet, money to Nepal is not what Nepal needed. With the economic cost of the Nepal earthquake is estimated to be between $1 Billion to $10 Billion. To recover would take a decade and would sap 50% of the annual GDP of Nepal alone.
In the short term it will devastate the heart of the tourism industry which is the life-source of the country where visitors and climbers come to attempt to scale Mount Everest which at least is a very dangerous enterprise that took the lives of 17 climbers and left 200 climbers still stranded on the mountain a week later. On a normal basis the tourists that come to climb the Himalayans in the land of Nepal stay in the Nepal as tourists?
These times of devastation are also times in which the economic powerhouse nations of the world will compete in the future to gain a power edge from this nation. Nepal is currently a buffer state between India and China, where New Delhi is the largest weapons supplier to Nepal but China is the largest foreign investor in the year for 2014. So, New Delhi and Beijing will use the earthquake to build new economic alliances to build hydroelectric plants to harness Nepal’s 6,000 rivers that flow down from the slopes of the Himalayan Mountains. Needless to say, this earthquake will forever alter the relationship between America and China in the future.
Yet, what the Nepalese people are needing most in this time of national distress is the donation of technical expertise by sending disaster response teams. Who do you think brought the largest team of rescue workers, and medical teams from around the world? One of the smallest countries of the world: the State of Israel.
China, the largest nation of the world sent a 62 member search and rescue mission, Japan sent a 70 member disaster relief team, yet the State of Israel sent 260 rescue experts in addition to a 200-person strong medical team. The United Nations was struggling to release $15 million from its central emergency–response fund, while the United States after one week was struggling to deploy even through USAID a disaster response team a disaster assistance response team and seeking to activate an urban search and rescue team. The insensitivity of the White House response is only balanced against some countries like China who seek to capitalize on tragedies; to keep Nepal as an important link to its “New Silk Road” economic improvement plan to prevent uprisings in Tibet seeking their own independence from Beijing controlled Tibet to the north.
As the Nepalese were struggling to overcome the disaster, the cities and families were struggling on what to do with dead bodies with which there were no families to identity or to claim them as their own. The city of Kathmandu is overwhelmed with dead bodies as truck drivers take their vehicles down the mud worn slopes on the embankments of the Bhagwati River.
Then they drive through the muddy shallows of the river into the grassy knoll at the center of the river. There volunteers unload the bodies stiff with rigor mortis into stretchers to be taken to crudely created funeral pyres set alight by local volunteers without any formal cremation ceremony. The undead bodies continue to mount at the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital in Kathmandu yet in the midst of the first week the death toll of unclaimed bodies passed the number of 5.500, assuring that the official body count of people who died during the 2015 Nepal Earthquake is grossly understated.
If there was any time to ponder the purpose of the future of the revealing of Ha Maschiach (King Messiah) we only have to look into the world around us to realize that this is but a mini-drama of what may occur on Planet Earth before the World of Come is actually realized in Bi’etah, in its own time as determined by the G-d of the Universes. The Guela by Bi’etah will come as determined at Creation with great devastation and destruction on Planet Earth.
So who then is the King Messiah (Ha Maschiach) who is the Messiah son of David (Maschiach ben Dovid) who will come after the Messiah son of Joseph (Messiah ben Yosef)? This enigmatic figure that has eluded the best of scholars over the years has been searched in the great mysteries of the Sages of Judah.
As revealed in the recent article titled, “Shiloh, the Neshama of the Neshama Soul of Moshe the Redeemer”, we learned that the early preparatory period of redemption (It’chalta d’Guelah) was the era in which the Maschiach ben Yosef would be the guiding force of bring the final redemption to it fruition even though it came as a winding path that include the round-about pathways of Divine Providence that are called the Ikvot Meshicha (Messiah’s heels).
Today we are nearing the end of the era called the Ikvot Meshicha (Messiah’s heels). Yet, we still must understand that this wandering path has carried us through the American Revolution, the French Revolution, plus later World War I and World War II, the Cold War between Russian and America, plus the Korean War, Viet Nam War, and the War against Terror in the Middle East. They were only a prelude to the final redemption of all Israel.
There are many that are looking for an earthly messiah, but the messiah that is to come will come only by the appointment of HaShem Himself. According to the Gaon of Vilna, all the divine interventions involved in the ingathering of the exiles of the Lost 10 Tribes that include the building of Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) and the expansion and resettlement of Eretz Yisrael (Land of Israel) in order to transform the Land of Israel into “Holy Land” and the return and restoration of the Shekinah (Divine Presence).
The Lost Ten Tribed Israelites were the First Primitive Buddhists
The G-d of Israel proclaimed that there are only two groups of people who will be restored back into covenant with Him, the Jews of the House of Israel and the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel. Both families, the Jews and the Israelites were scattered across the face of the earth and would become HaShem emissaries incognito sent to elevate the 70 nations of the world, so that even Righteous Gentiles could become part of the covenant.
Even the children of Ishmael still rooted in Islam, the children of the Lost Ten Tribes who today are now Buddhist, or the Lost Ten Tribes who today call themselves Christians will be assimilated into the Jewish culture. This will be because deep in their hearts they are known by the Divine to be “safe to save” and willing to live in peace with their brothers; all descendants of the Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Only the G-d of Israel knows who they are.
We are quickly being polarizing a world in which there will be only two choices; we are either for the Hebrew Israelites; both now part of the Jews of the house of Judah and the Lost Israelites of the House of Israel or we will be against them. This comes to one sobering conclusion, if you are a descendant of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel, whether Muslim, Buddhist or Christian, and you still despise your brothers, the Jews, you may be left outside, not redeemed to participate in the coming “Era of the Messiah” even though you think you want to be a part of them.
If you have wondered how biblical prophecy fits into your life, and how it will affect the Return of the House of Israel, then the G-d of Israel is beginning his “call” to bring you home, too. You might desire to reconnect with the Biblical portrayals on what is and may be happening in your near future. This Biblical portrayal includes Prophecies that the Lost Tribes of the House of Israel are about to return to the Land of their Biblical Inheritance. This is Divine Destiny in living reality as the 10 Lost Tribes of Israel return to their Homelands first in Shomron (Samaria), Israel.
