A maxim from the Mahabharat that somebody had posted, in response to the rather obvious question of why devotees attending the Kumbh Mela had not emerged unscathed from the Covid-19 community superspreading there: न देवा दण्डमादाय रक्षन्ति पशुपालवत् ।यं हि रक्षितुमिच्छन्ति बुद्ध्या संयोजयन्ति तम्॥ "Gods do not brandish a cane,Minding men like sheepThey bless with … Continue reading Wisdom Is A Gods-Given Gift : Use It -Mahabharat Wisdom For The Modern Age
Not quite Techno-Heraldry , but a pretty cool unit-patch all the same. Not just for the rather cool iconography, but also due to the significance of the Latin maxim. US Air Force 416th Flight Test Squadron, Edwards Air Force Base, 'Special Projects' flight. Now, the squadron in question was basically brought back into being in … Continue reading Procul Este Profani – An Aeneid Reference From The US Air Force 416th Flight Test Squadron Unit Blazon
Appropriate for a Wednesday - another not-quite Techno-Heraldry US military patch. This time, for the NRO (National Reconnaissance Office) L-34 "Odin" satellite launch. Now, there's a few (space) oddities to the patch that may seem a bit peculiar upon first inspection - yet which have perhaps surprising resonances with the underlying characteristics of the project … Continue reading NRO L-34 ‘Odin’ Satellite Launch Mission Patch – An Indo-European Iconographic Analysis
What follows is not my own writing - although I have had a hand in editing it, and it has resulted from months of concordant conversations between myself and its major author, Aldo Rapace. We feel that it has come to a necessary stage in our Mission, to begin more openly discussing and working upon … Continue reading A Manifesto For The Resurrective Reincarnation Of The Loka-lized Indo-European Faith
The 6th of April marks the Anniversary of Arya Akasha - both of the Research Institute's founding proper, in 2016, as well as our successfully taking things 'public' upon this date three years afore. With that in mind - here's some excellent art of Lord Agni, the Vedic Priest of the Gods, and God of … Continue reading Arya Akasha 5th Anniversary – And Glorious Agni Art !
I spent .. an extended period this morning responding to a misunderstanding about a certain Scythian archaeogenetic study. A chap who's quite a fan of OIT ['Out Of India Theory'] had read it completely the wrong way. You know how it goes. Anyway, after putting a few hours into showing how the study said the … Continue reading Why OIT vs AMT In Some Ways Misses The Point At The Heart Of The Modern Indo-European World
It is Wednesday - Woden's Day … and therefore, a suitably impressive Shaivite Temple ! Now, this is from Prambanan in Indonesia - a place we today think of as the world's largest Muslim-majority country. And yet, 1200 years ago when this impressive site was being constructed, it was quite different; the polity in question … Continue reading Reincarnation Amidst The Ruins – The Still-Living Shaivite Saliency At Prambanan, An Eastern Bastion Of The Hindu Faith [Incredible Indo-European Holy Sites Series Part IV]
It has come to my attention that the chap who does "DharmaNation", is once again pushing his "Thor Mantras" effort. Now with all the appropriate respect that is due to the gentleman in question … there are some issues with what he has presented. I won't get into his attempted co-identification of Odin with Indra (if … Continue reading On “Thor Mantras” Proposed By DharmaNation
An associate asked this question - and I think it is an interesting one for us to address. My reply : "I mean … not necessarily - like, it depends upon what you mean by "superhero", of course - but there's pretty strong evidence that PIE deifics aren't … super-powered humans ; like, it's one … Continue reading Against The ‘Superhero’ Reductionism Of Indo-European Mythology
If you asked many Hindus to identify a cornerstone concept to our faith, I have no doubt that they would cite one word: "Dharma". Fantastically complex in its applications both theoretical and tangible/practical, there is no getting around its saliency - not just for the Hindusphere, but also for those other religions which have their … Continue reading Do Hindus Have A Monopoly On Dharma – Or Is It A Broader Indo-European Notion ?
