It is Wednesday - Woden's Day. And so therefore, as has become our tradition, we present an illumination of Eight Forms or Facings of the God, as attested in archaic Vedic scripture.  Now I have chosen this particular set of eight, because they represent a most useful conceptual framework with which to link various Aspects and … Continue reading Eight Forms And Energies Of Shiva As Sky Father

On the Indo-European Etymology of Indra

Often it seems that the interpretation and the 'accepted wisdom' on various more archaic Indo-European mythic figures is effectively an exercise in agenda-pushing and confirmation bias. One deific seemingly singled out for far more than His fair share of such torturous misperception is, of course, Lord Indra. Otherwise known as the Vedic facing of the Indo-European … Continue reading On the Indo-European Etymology of Indra

On The Birth Of Indra And Its Direct Parallel In The Circumstance Of Danae And Perseus, Devaki And Krishna, Pritha And Karna, Etc.

The exercise of the sincere reconstruction of the archaic Indo-European mythology is an art. Its major formulations, have become fragmentary - and it is only via the re-alignment of several spheres that we are able to more truly glimpse what our more distant ancestors believed. However, this is not an entirely abstract pursuit - it … Continue reading On The Birth Of Indra And Its Direct Parallel In The Circumstance Of Danae And Perseus, Devaki And Krishna, Pritha And Karna, Etc.

Perseus , Krishna , Karna – Three Perspectives Upon The Origin Myth Of The Indo-European Striker/Thunderer

I have been meaning for some time to take a look at the Indo-European underpinnings of Krishna - in part because it helps to dispel this lingering and insistent misapprehension about post-Vedic / 'Puranic' era Hinduism being somehow 'non-Indo-European' mythology or religion.  Now, a full-scale writeup of all the observed concordancies for this figure is … Continue reading Perseus , Krishna , Karna – Three Perspectives Upon The Origin Myth Of The Indo-European Striker/Thunderer

On Danu , Danann , Danube , And Other Watery Sources Of Life For The Ancient Indo-European Peoples

[Author's Note: This is an excerpt from my recent 'The Queen of Serpents - The Serpentine Figure Of The Indo-European Earth Mother'. Given some recent inaccuracies around Tuatha De Danann that have appeared in circulation, it seemed an ideal time to present this as something of a correction. The segment of the original article immediately … Continue reading On Danu , Danann , Danube , And Other Watery Sources Of Life For The Ancient Indo-European Peoples

The Sea Horse Of Sovereignty – On Hellenic Poseidon , Vedic Varuna, Scythian Thagimasidas , And The Essential Equine Elevator-Empowerer Of The Ancient Indo-European King

Something that has long puzzled commentators is the strong association of the Greek figure of Poseidon with the Horse. This is incredibly prominent within the Poseidonic mythology - the form taken by Poseidon in His pursuit of Demeter Erinyes, for instance, or that of the Son born to that union, Arion (The Pegasus, likewise, is … Continue reading The Sea Horse Of Sovereignty – On Hellenic Poseidon , Vedic Varuna, Scythian Thagimasidas , And The Essential Equine Elevator-Empowerer Of The Ancient Indo-European King
