In some cases, this means making available elements for persons out there to reconnect with the heritage (their own, directly) - or to immerse … Continue reading The Modern Propitiation Of Apollo Smintheus – Bring The Dawn

Devi Worship In Puerto Rico For NavRatri [Operation VaishvaDevi]

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

On The Army of Kali

Finger-Snapping Intensifies Kali - and Dakinis , striding forth from the Smashana (Cremation Ground). We would, perhaps, suggest that this is a 'Smashana *krewh₂-' As in a 'Crew' … but using that particular Proto-Indo-European term which stands for 'Cold Blood' (in contrast to *h₁ésh₂r̥ - 'hot-blood', 'alive-blood'). This informs Sanskrit 'Kravya' (क्रव्य - 'raw flesh', … Continue reading On The Army of Kali

‘Hinduism in the Hinterlands’ – On Putting The ‘Vishvam’ Back Into ‘Krinvanto Vishvam Aryam’

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’

The Propitiation of Poseidon – A ‘Weapons Test’ / ‘Field Test’ Of Applied Indo-European Piety In The Modern Age

At Arya Akasha, we do not simply talk about resurrecting Indo-European piety. We also resurrect Indo-European Piety. This from a ritual offering to Poseidon about to commence, carried out by one of our Brahmins, and designed by he, myself, and one of our Hellenic experts.
