Every so often we run into people insisting that Hinduism can only ever be for current Indians. This is Khmer king Jayavarman II, accompanied by his Purohit, Sivakaivalya, performing oblation to Rudra upon a Shivling. Jayavarman II forged an empire; was a patron of Brahmanas; and had temples built to the Gods.

On Prayer – An Indo-European Commentary Upon Purported Germanic ‘God-Bothering’ With Same

Recently, our attention was drawn to a post from a "Reconstructionist Germanic Heathenry" page which made some claims about prayer that we feel deserve a bit of a closer look.

On Hearing The Call And Becoming An Active Protagonist – A Conversational Excerpt

Recently, we had been talking with a new associate about, I suppose we may say, the 'journey of faith' - and this notion of 'hearing the call' to do as we are doing. We are Hindus - however, I think that it applies quite pervasively to adherents from all the various Indo-European spheres who have … Continue reading On Hearing The Call And Becoming An Active Protagonist – A Conversational Excerpt

A God-Fearing People – Against The Pretension That One Ought Not Perhaps Fear An Indo-European God

We had recently seen a claim from a prominent American witch that seemed to suggest it was improper to have "fear" of Gods.  As they put it:  "Not really something considered to be a healthy trait in a relationship - divine or otherwise." We could say quite a bit about this, but let's just stick … Continue reading A God-Fearing People – Against The Pretension That One Ought Not Perhaps Fear An Indo-European God
