The Golden Radiancy Of Somnath Jyotirlinga [Incredible Indo-European Holy Sites Series Part V]

Apt for a Monday - the ShivLing at Somnath , one of the Twelve (although by some counts thirteen) Jyotirlingam ['Starlight Lingam'] sites; 'Somnath' meaning 'Lord of the Soma' - a prominent Shaivite epithet, theonym, and role. Which it would be interesting to connect to Odin's role in the bringing of the Mead of Poetry. … Continue reading The Golden Radiancy Of Somnath Jyotirlinga [Incredible Indo-European Holy Sites Series Part V]

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

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.

This ongoing pandemic is leading to some interesting - and creative - developments in the religious sphere. I got a message from one of the … Continue reading On Using The IndraNet To Facilitate Indo-European Religious Revival

COME HOME, INDO-EUROPEAN MAN – A Response To A Critic

As I predicted, my recent post showing British soldiers engaged in Hindu devotional practices alongside their Gurkha comrades, provoked some strong reactions. Most of which were positive, although one chap replied with a pretty negative comment that I think deserves the proper response. That being a comprehensive reply setting the issues he's raised to rest … Continue reading COME HOME, INDO-EUROPEAN MAN – A Response To A Critic

“Beware The Man Of One Book” – A Case-Study In Slavic Secondary Source Over-Reliance

[Disclaimer: We're fully aware that there are a range of sources utilized in the reconstruction of Slavic Indo-European religion; and that there is, indeed, occasionally quite capacious use to be made in such endeavours from the writings of 'outsiders' to the traditions in question, and preservations embedded in later texts.   The following is presented … Continue reading “Beware The Man Of One Book” – A Case-Study In Slavic Secondary Source Over-Reliance
