RudraGanika – A Study In Eternal Return As Manifested Through The Sky Father’s Female Retinue Across The Indo-European World

[Author's Note: This work brings together several (my)themes close and dear to my heart. It had been intended to be published upon MahaShivRatri - the 1st of March in 2022 - however, Time waits for no man (other than Her Husband); and my continuing to find further elements which cried out to be included resulted … Continue reading RudraGanika – A Study In Eternal Return As Manifested Through The Sky Father’s Female Retinue Across The Indo-European World

Do Hindus Have A Monopoly On Dharma – Or Is It A Broader Indo-European Notion ?

If you asked many Hindus to identify a cornerstone concept to our faith, I have no doubt that they would cite one word: "Dharma".

I excised it from the original piece due to … Continue reading On Scythian Tabiti Invoked As Protector Goddess For The King ?

The aphorism ran thus: "Without a sign, his sword the brave man draws,And asks no omen but his country's cause." I turned it over in … Continue reading Out Of Context Quotes And DevaRajya Uber Alles From The Iliad

RAGNAROK AND THE NIGHT LORD

Consider the Sanskrit terms राजन् and रजनी - Rajan and Rajani. They look similar, no? In fact, you'd be forgiven, even notwithstanding that the former's got a longer 'a' sound ['Raajan' - like Raja, which derives directly therefrom], for thinking that they are perhaps related forms of the same word. Maybe a masculine and feminine … Continue reading RAGNAROK AND THE NIGHT LORD
