VOLUME II - BOOK X - CHAPTER VIII Page 770: "I think I may venture to assume, that I have connected the Masons, the Templars, and the Ishmaelians, and I beg leave to observe that, by means of the red eight-point cross, I connect the Templars also with the Manichæans and the Buddhists of India. …"
"The truth is, that the religion of the Ras, of Buddha, of Metis, of Sophia, of the Crhjoj, of Bafomet, of Acamoth or the Intelligence Universelle, extended over the whole world, and was the universal esoteric, ancient and modern religion; —the religion of Tibet, of Sion or Siam, of the Monks of the lake of Paremboli, (Embolima of India,) of Dodona or Bodona, of Eleusis, of Ephesus, of Delphi, of Virgil, of the Gnostics, of the Manichæans, and of the Pope—for which reason he very properly calls himself a CATHOLIC, and his religion Catholic or Pantheistic, and his followers Catholics or Pandees, or Saints of Pan-ism or Catholicism."
"I beg to repeat to such of my readers as are Royal-Arch Masons, that Solomon was a Ras or wise man, and that a Mason in Rajapoutana is called a Raz, which also means mystery; and now I take the liberty of observing to my brethren, that they are called ROYAL-ARCH MASONS, not because they have anything to do with kings, but because they are Raja-pout-an Masons, as the persons who conquered Egypt were Royal Shepherds or Shepherd Kings, or Raja-pout-an Shepherds, from Pallitana. Pout is Buddha, who is Arch, who is Ras."
"If my reader recollect that the Queen of Sheba came from Ethiopia, and that the African Ethiopians, the Royal family at least, pretend to be the descendants of Solomon and this Queen, whose name was Helena, he will not be surprised to find the King of the Ethiopians taking the name of that virtue for which this prince was in a particular manner celebrated—Wisdom. Thus he is called, not the king but the Ras of Abyssinia. Why was Solomon so celebrated for this virtue ? It was no doubt from being the protector, or perhaps the renovator, of the doctrine of the emanation of the Rasit."
"… Page 771 In the valley of Cashmere, on a hill close to the lake, are the ruins of a temple of Solomon. The history states that Solomon finding the valley all covered with water except this hill, which was an island, opened the passage in the mountains and let most of it out, thus giving to Cashmere its beautiful plains.* The temple which is built on the hill is called Tucht Suliman. Afterward Forster** says, "Previously to the Mahometan conquest of India, Kashmere was celebrated for the learning of its Brahmins and the magnificent construction of its temple." Now what am I to make of this ? Were these Brahmins Jews, or the Jews Brahmins ? The inadvertent way in which Forster states the fact precludes all idea of deceit. * Forster's Travels, Vol. II. p.11. ** P. 17."
"Page 772 … I apprehend that the temple was a type of the universe, and that all the temples were the same; all parts of the one universal mythos which extended, as is evident, from the same sacred names of places being found every where, to the farthest points of the globe. … I entertain a persuasion that the Solomonian mythos, which we have found in China, in Cashmere, in Oude, in Persia, in Asia Minor, and in Matura of the Carnatic, as described by Bouchet, in the temple of the Brahmins, with its passage of the sea, &c., &c., were all the same with that of Western Syria; that they all had at the bottom the same recorded transactions; and that this was a part of the secret Jewish religion.…"
"Page 774 … That the tribe of Juda did exist almost all over the world cannot possibly be denied : the city of Judia in Siam, the mythos at Cape Comorin, the temple of Solomon in Cashmere, the Montes Solumi in Mewar, the great city of Oude or Juda, are facts which prove it, and admit of no dispute."
(Here He questions if the Brahmins are the Jews)
