The Black Avenging Form Of The Earth Mother And The Pursuits Of The Sky Father As Solar Horseman – A Comparative Indo-European Typological Evocation [Part One – Demeter Erinyes, Poseidon]

Something that I have often found intriguing about the Indo-European mythology - is the manner in which various peoples have preserved differing perspectives upon what are quite clearly the same events, same beings, same myths ... yet which are recorded from different vantage points, and with corresponding questions about how they should 'fit back together'. … Continue reading The Black Avenging Form Of The Earth Mother And The Pursuits Of The Sky Father As Solar Horseman – A Comparative Indo-European Typological Evocation [Part One – Demeter Erinyes, Poseidon]

THE WAGES OF SIN – NEMESIS Coin from the reign of Marcus Aurelius – Arte-Facts #8

This particular drachma … Continue reading THE WAGES OF SIN – NEMESIS Coin from the reign of Marcus Aurelius – Arte-Facts #8

OF BHAIRAVA AND BALANCE, Vedic, Eddic, and Homeric perspectives upon Lore and Order [Part 4D] KankalaMurti (Habeas Corpus) – The Inception Of Divine Reconciliation As The Beginnings Of Atonement

The 'short-form' rendition of the Tale of Bhairava, Brahma-Slayer, generally has Him pursued by the Brahmahatya personification until He reaches the Holy City of Varanasi/Kashi, whereupon Bhairava's symbolic act of penance is completed, the Skull of Brahma falls from His Mighty Blood-Stained Hand ['KapalaMochana'] and the Brahmahatya sinks into the ground mere meters from the … Continue reading OF BHAIRAVA AND BALANCE, Vedic, Eddic, and Homeric perspectives upon Lore and Order [Part 4D] KankalaMurti (Habeas Corpus) – The Inception Of Divine Reconciliation As The Beginnings Of Atonement

OF BHAIRAVA AND BALANCE, Vedic, Eddic, and Homeric perspectives upon Lore and Order [Part 4B] The Emanation Of Rta As Balance – Justice As The Maintenance Of Divine Order

But before we continue with our travel through the Myth of Bhairava towards this proffered Syzygy, it is necessary to dwell upon a vitally important concept which underpins the vast majority of what comes next. We've also met it before, as an effective core theme of much that has been said thus far; albeit, even when … Continue reading OF BHAIRAVA AND BALANCE, Vedic, Eddic, and Homeric perspectives upon Lore and Order [Part 4B] The Emanation Of Rta As Balance – Justice As The Maintenance Of Divine Order

OF BHAIRAVA AND BALANCE – Vedic, Eddic, and Homeric perspectives on Lore and Order [Part 3B]: The Vengeance of Athena, The Wrath of Poseidon, The Hubris Of Ajax the Lesser And Also Of The Undutiful Greeks

Two further points shall be made here before we move on to our third comparative example, and thence ultimately to our conclusions and instruction resulting therefrom for the Modern Indo-European Man [technically speaking, this is "man" in a less-gendered than usual sense - 'thinking being', or 'Child of Man(n)u(s)', I mean] .

OF BHAIRAVA AND BALANCE – Vedic, Eddic, and Homeric perspectives on Lore and Order [Part 3A]: Ajax the Lesser and Athena’s Right Arm Of Vengeance

Consider the figure of Ajax the Lesser. Specifically in the context of his actions during and after the Sack of Troy. Here, we see a number of accounts attesting that Ajax (the Lesser) had sought booty of war by pillaging even into the Temple of Athena - grabbing hold of Cassandra, who had been taking … Continue reading OF BHAIRAVA AND BALANCE – Vedic, Eddic, and Homeric perspectives on Lore and Order [Part 3A]: Ajax the Lesser and Athena’s Right Arm Of Vengeance

OF BHAIRAVA AND BALANCE – Vedic, Eddic, and Homeric Perspectives Upon Lore And Order In The Indo-European World View [Part 1]

One of my favourite myths from the Hindu - and more especially, Shaivite - legendarium, is that which surrounds Kaal Bhairava. Not merely because it is there are some cool happenings within it, or because we see one of the two best-presented incidences of an Axe as a Roudran Theological Argument [the other, of course, … Continue reading OF BHAIRAVA AND BALANCE – Vedic, Eddic, and Homeric Perspectives Upon Lore And Order In The Indo-European World View [Part 1]
