The Returning Skanda Subramaniam Murti Of Tiruchendur [Incredible Indo-European Holy Sites Series Part VII]

It is TUESDAY - The Day of Ares, the Day of Mars. And therefore … a most interesting tale in relation to Lord Skanda (Subramanya). Throughout much of the 1600s, the Dutch and Portuguese fought a protracted war over possession of various far-flung colonial possessions across the known world.

‘Nomads’, ‘Murmurers’, & ‘Death-Seekers At the Border’ – Three Further Perspectives On Barbarians Drawn Into The Broader Indo-European Sphere

Following on from our earlier piece looking at 'Barbarian' in Vedic understanding - here are several further examples .. along with broader Indo-European comparanda contextualizing each. Two of these were furnished by the same associate [A.P.] whom I had been discussing with in the excerpt posted earlier. I have not independently tracked them down in … Continue reading ‘Nomads’, ‘Murmurers’, & ‘Death-Seekers At the Border’ – Three Further Perspectives On Barbarians Drawn Into The Broader Indo-European Sphere

A Manifesto For The Resurrective Reincarnation Of The Loka-lized Indo-European Faith

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

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 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]

On Indo-European Divine Inspiration – And The Zoroastrian Persecutory Suppression Of Same

Frequently when the subject of the Zoroastrian inversion of Indo-European religious belief is brought up, people presume that it is 'just' some form of linguistic confusion - a 'reversal of polarity' afflicting only an incredibly limited array of things. 'Deva' ['Deus', '-Tyr', etc. - 'God', 'Shining One'] becoming 'Daeva' ['Demon'], for example; and if they … Continue reading On Indo-European Divine Inspiration – And The Zoroastrian Persecutory Suppression Of Same

On The Restoration Of The Position Of Women To That Of Archaic Indo-European Society

I find this image - and what it represents - rather intriguing. Because what we are presented with here is an instance of a Past challenging a Present. And it is something with quite archaic Indo-European mytho-cultural resonancy. What do I mean by this? Well, first, here's a brief description of what's going on in … Continue reading On The Restoration Of The Position Of Women To That Of Archaic Indo-European Society

Thursday – Jupiter’s Day, Brihaspati’s Day Rather Than Thor’s Day

It is Thursday - Jupiter's Day ; or, in the Hindu reckoning, Brihaspati's Day. Now, there is an obvious disconnect here between Thursday as Thor's Day … and the day being regarded as the Day of the Thundering Sky Father. This is due to the Interpretatio Romana framework as wielded by post-Christianization figures having some … Continue reading Thursday – Jupiter’s Day, Brihaspati’s Day Rather Than Thor’s Day

On The Crown Of Crows And The Regality Of Ravens – A Restoration And Re-Explication Of Their Incredible Indo-European Symbolic Saliency

One of the most misunderstood creatures in the Indo-European mythic conceptual syllabry has to be the Corvid - the Crow , the Raven (and I must admit that I am biased upon this score - for it is an important part of my own name and therefore nature). For if you asked many just what they … Continue reading On The Crown Of Crows And The Regality Of Ravens – A Restoration And Re-Explication Of Their Incredible Indo-European Symbolic Saliency

The Place Of Worship – The Temple – The Home And Healing Whole Of The Community

Something I love about the Indo-European etymology - is that manner in which the roots of terms resonate with their descendants. And, in so doing, significantly broaden our understanding of just what they actually are - how we are to relate to them. A good example of this is the Ancient Greek ναός - 'Naos' … Continue reading The Place Of Worship – The Temple – The Home And Healing Whole Of The Community
