Of Goddesses, Gods, and Ghosts at the Crossroads – A Comparative Indo-European Exploration

It fascinates me how our various Indo-European religions 'interlock'. Both in terms of the way that the same (or highly similar) elements co-occur in recognizable format across various of these, even separated by millennia or many thousands of kilometers; yet also in the way that a fulsome understanding of one can help to 'unlock' the … Continue reading Of Goddesses, Gods, and Ghosts at the Crossroads – A Comparative Indo-European Exploration

द्यौस; देवा, देउस , टिर : बहुल देवता, एक द्यौस पिता

द्यौस; देवा, देउस , टिर : बहुल देवता, एक द्यौस पिता हमारे पौराणिक साहित्य में इन्डो-यूरोपियन परम्पराओंके पूजनीय द्यौस पिता की मुख्यता के बावजूद उनके देवत्व को ठीक से समझा नहीं जाता। आप अन्य लोगों को उनके बारे में कई बेतुकि बातें एवं झूठी निन्दा करते हुए पाएंगे। उन झूठो में सबसे सामान्य यह कि … Continue reading द्यौस; देवा, देउस , टिर : बहुल देवता, एक द्यौस पिता

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. The post itself had been taking aim at "Christian Baggage" in Germanic revivalist adherents - and had singled out … well, we'll quote for you: … Continue reading On Prayer – An Indo-European Commentary Upon Purported Germanic ‘God-Bothering’ With Same

Dyaus Inter Alia – On The Sky Father’s Major Theonym And The Relative (In-)Frequency Of Its Occurrence Across Various Indo-European Spheres

Something a perspicacious associate [O.R.] observed is that even though each Indo-European mythic sphere may have its Sky Father deific in prominent pride of place … it is only amidst the Hellenic and Roman perspectives that we actually find 'Dyaus Pitar' (or, if we are being properly PIE : *Dyḗus ph₂tḗr) theonymics in prominent usage and … Continue reading Dyaus Inter Alia – On The Sky Father’s Major Theonym And The Relative (In-)Frequency Of Its Occurrence Across Various Indo-European Spheres

Empowerment Unity – On The Essential Potency Of An Approach Both ‘Indo-‘ As Well As ‘-European’

There has recently been some argument on twitter about the necessity (or otherwise) of drawing from the still-living Indo-European religious spheres of the East, to aid and avail the ongoing resurrection efforts for the Indo-European religious spheres of the (European) West. As applies our thinking and envisioning upon this front, perhaps one such element may … Continue reading Empowerment Unity – On The Essential Potency Of An Approach Both ‘Indo-‘ As Well As ‘-European’
