Ritual Demonstration Of The Living Indo-European Faith

Rendered offerings of Dakshina to the Priests this afternoon, for six years looking after me. There is another Bandh upon my forearm, tied with a warding; and Tilaka upon my brow. Now, to elucidate what is going on here - this is a resonancy to quite ancient, fundamental Indo-European ritual. The cornerstones of which are … Continue reading Ritual Demonstration Of The Living Indo-European Faith

Arktos, Ursa, Rksa SaptaRsi – The Seven Bear-Seers Amidst The Stars And The Foundational Act Of Piety Of The Maidens Of Milk And Fate

Encoded within the Stars - and more specifically, the Constellations, the manner in which we project out up, upon them - is a wealth of archaic mythic meaning. We have earlier looked at some of these manifestations as applies Orion and the Pleiades (Krittikas) - now we shall turn our attentions briefly to an intricately … Continue reading Arktos, Ursa, Rksa SaptaRsi – The Seven Bear-Seers Amidst The Stars And The Foundational Act Of Piety Of The Maidens Of Milk And Fate

Goddess Worship At Devi Kothi – An Expansion From William Simpson’s Painting And Journalistic Portrayal

Something I often find remarkable when looking at images and textual accounts of religious elements across the Indo-European sphere is just how … familiar they are when we actually gaze into them closely. This does not mean that they are all identically the same, of course - far from it! But it does tend to … Continue reading Goddess Worship At Devi Kothi – An Expansion From William Simpson’s Painting And Journalistic Portrayal

A Brief Comparanda On Ymir And Purusha – A Demon Dismembered versus the Sky Father As Cosmos Himself

As we have frequently noted, there are some stubborn-to-shift shibboleths within our field that, despite all available evidence to the contrary, persist well beyond reason. One of these concerns the ongoing conflationism between Purusha of the Vedic cosmology & cosmogony - and the Ymir of the Germanic accounting. Now on the surface of things, there … Continue reading A Brief Comparanda On Ymir And Purusha – A Demon Dismembered versus the Sky Father As Cosmos Himself

An Odinic Post On An Odinic Post – A ShivLing

It is Wednesday - Therefore Odinic Art Posting And I mean that quite literally! For you see, in addition to the obvious co-identification of Odin with Shiva that we have capaciously illustrated elsewhere … the ShivLing is strongly coterminous with the Irminsul. This is, therefore, an Odinic Post about an Odinic Post. Now, in terms … Continue reading An Odinic Post On An Odinic Post – A ShivLing

THE QUEEN OF SERPENTS – THE SERPENTINE FIGURE OF THE INDO-EUROPEAN EARTH MOTHER

As we have often noted, the prevalent mythic perception of the Serpent amidst the minds of many is that of a demonic antagonist - and a male one, at that. There are solid reasons for this, of course: foremost among these is the Judeo-Christian baseline many of tend to operate under, where a certain serpent … Continue reading THE QUEEN OF SERPENTS – THE SERPENTINE FIGURE OF THE INDO-EUROPEAN EARTH MOTHER

Red Bull – The Indo-European Sky Father And A Certain Empowering Brew

Something I have often taken a bit of pleasure in, is finding the 'echoes' of underlying archaic Indo-European symbolism amidst the wreckage of the modern world. In various cases, these are 'traces' that were probably not consciously intended as such by their contemporary authors - and yet which nevertheless have some fundamental, recurring resonancy back … Continue reading Red Bull – The Indo-European Sky Father And A Certain Empowering Brew

Sons of the Sun – A Brief Comparative Of The Indo-European Progenitor Twins

The Indo-European Myth of the Progenitor Twins is quite literally foundational for who we are and how we relate to the people, the world around us. It is therefore unsurprising that even despite occasional alterations, it has remained so recognizably pervasive amidst the descendant Indo-European peoples. In our recent "Sons of the Sun" series, we … Continue reading Sons of the Sun – A Brief Comparative Of The Indo-European Progenitor Twins
