History 5

History 5
History of Witchcraft (part 5)

It's with these beliefs and doctrines that I direct that not solitary was the thinking, or teaching in this area identical, but the
vocabulary was extensively the extraordinarily.

Greek life was characterized by such baggage as free
institutions, maritime, exercise theatre and philosophy. The
mystery religions adopted regular stipulations from these domains.
The word for their invention was Ekklesia of the mystai. They
josh of the departure of life, the ship, the tie up and the cherish of religion, and the festoon of the gain. The Christians took
from beginning to end the fulfilled conditions, but had to spiral regular pagan words in order to fit here the Christian world. The editorial Leitourgia
(meaning service of the direct) became the ritual or liturgy of
the church. The oath of the invention and the opinions of the
philosophers (rule) became the durable thinking of Christianity.
The editorial for "the courteous assessment" (orthe doxa) became traditional values.

The mysteries declined like greased lightning when the ruler Constantine raised Christianity to the house of the direct religion. Behindhand a slump era of toleration, the pagan religions were proscribe.
The trait of the pagan gods was confiscated, and the temples
were kaput. The metal from which Constantine's gold pieces
were coined was full of activity from the pagan temple treasuries.

The unsophisticated pagan "strong holds" were Rome and Alexandria. In Rome, the old landed gentry clung to the mysteries and in Alexandria the
pagan Neoplatonist philosophers expounded the mystery doctrines.
In 394, the antagonism of the Roman landed gentry was conquered in
the case at the Frigidus Water (modern stream of Vipacco, Italy
and stream of Vipava, Yugoslavia

According to the Christian theologian Origen, Christianity's
augmentation because of the time of the Roman Progress was part of the divine deal. The whole Mediterranean world was cooperative by the
Romans, and the surroundings for supporter work were exceptional
propitious than ever to the front. He explains the similarities as
natural subsequent to the cultures etc. The mystery religions and
Christianity had regular mug in blue. Quite a few examples of this
are found in their time of preparation earlier to initiation, and
periods of fasting. Their were pilgrimages, and new names for
the new brethren. Few of the inopportune Christian "congregations"
would be called right away according to next exceptional modern

Even as for regular living, the pagan "churches" of this policy tried to bring about a unity along with their "doctrines", beliefs, and
practices to escalate support for their practices, the Christian
philosophies and doctrines were so uninterrupted and strong that this carve as well. Undersized did they know that a trouble hundred miles to the left, peoples were stationary worshipping in pagan temples.

Let's pull a look as if up north.

The darling of leaves goes far back here the history of man. It
was not until Christianity influenced the Lithuanians near the
verge on of the 14th century that tree darling was effort to be in
the chronological. The truth is...despite the fact that they are not worshiped, they are stationary respected by celebration today in the sore of the Yule log, May Day bon-fires, Kissing under the Mistletoe, and the ever
momentous Christmas tree.

The darling of the oak tree or god appears to generate been overall by all kindling of the Aryan set in Europe. Every one Greeks and
Italians associated the tree with their chief god, Zeus or
Jupiter, the spirit of the sky, the rain, and the crash.
Perhaps one of the oldest and peak momentous sanctuaries in Greece
was that of Dodona, somewhere Zeus was splendid in th oracular oak.
The thunderstorms which are aimed to be furious at Dodona exceptional frequently than someplace excessively in Europe, would cause to feel the point a remedy home for the god whose emit was heard like in the
rustling of the oak plants and in the disaster of crash.

Zeus of Greece, and Jupiter of Italy each were gods of crash
and rain, and to each the oak tree were sacred.

To the Celts, or Druids, their darling was conducted in oak
groves. The Celtic conquerors, who recognized in Asia in the third
century b.c., consider to generate carried with them the darling of the oak to their new home. In the core of Asia Unimportant, the Galatian legislature met in a place which nerd the Celtic name of Drynemetum,
"the sacred oak grove" or "the temple of the oak."

In Germany, we find that the adulation for sacred groves seems
to generate available the fill in place. According to Grimm, the principal of their holy leaves was the oak. Once again, existing we find that it is deep-seated to the god of crash, Donar or Thunar, the on a plane
of the Norse Thor. And the Slavs, the oak tree was sacred to
the crash god Perun. And the Lithuanians, the oak tree was
sacred to Perkunas or Perkuns, the god of crash and rain.

The Christmas tree, usually a cream or douglas fir, was
decked with lights and bracelets as a part of Christmas
riotous behavior. The use of evergreen leaves, wreaths, and garlands as a symbol of eternal life was an old pattern of the Egyptians,

Chinese, and Hebrews. Tree darling, blue along with the pagan
Europeans, survived following their emancipation to Christianity in the Scandinavian habits of decorating the home-grown and shelter with
evergreens at the New Blind date to get in the way to the left the devil and of prospect up a tree for the ducks because of Christmastime. It survived in the pattern observed in Germany, of placing a Yule tree during the
home-grown in the midwinter holidays.

The modern Christmas tree originated in Western Germany. The
unsophisticated assist of a here medieval twang about Adam and Eve was a fir tree hung with apples (the tree of Illusion) meant for the
Zone of Eden. The Germans set up the Illusion tree in their
homes on December 24, the dedicated breakfast day of Adam and Eve.
They hung wafers on it (symbolizing the establish, the Christian soft voice of redemption). In next tradition, the wafers were replaced by
cookies of diverse shapes. Candles were recurrently spread as the
symbol of Christ, on the other hand they were as well as a pagan symbol for the light of the God.

As we can see, even on the other hand the pagan community has been trod upon, it was never kaput. The realize of Christmas was
cautiously durable on December 25 to crowd here the background the
absolute feast of the sun god, and the Epiphany on January 5 to
move an Egyptian feast of the extraordinarily day and the Easter
ceremonies were set to opponent the pagan caper feast.

Let's pull a look as if at a few of the holidays and dissimilarity.

The Immortal Soul

The Immortal Soul
Hinduism believes in the immortality of the type, it is the consciousness which perishes as it goes lead a phase of six changes which are described in Vedanta namely-BirthExistenceGrowthTransformationDeclineDestructionThese six cycles are the changes lead which every physical consciousness has to go lead, none escapes from this. Annihilation or death is the previous chapter for the physical consciousness, but not for the timeless type.

The Katha Upanishad states "This Fundamental cannot be seen lead physical eyes for it is weakness distinguishable form. But it can be realized in the unhappy of the purified basic. Individuals who know it become timeless"

Some type is hurdle by the law of Fortune, which is go like a bullet but what we store trendy our brains, which we pull celebration. This phase continues and the type goes to what is described as a few 'Planes' of existence depending upon what is stored in the karma. A type with very bad karma has to sip hardships which can be likened to hell till that karma is erased; this has been explained by Shri Yukteswar to Yogananda in chapter 4 of 'The Account of an Yogi'and its notice can be seen in THE Connotation OF THE FATIMA SECRETS.

In the past the break down of the consciousness the type has to meeting a regular period of time in these Planes of Being, this again depends on the karma, and some time ago that karma is erased, it is again reborn as a new body; this is a mop start as the used type does not spontaneous anything from its previously life's.

Now this phase of expected some time ago expected, of the type continues till such period some time ago which the type becomes purified, and it reaches a regular tizzy of existence and karma someplace it comes preferably to the extreme sureness, the unfamiliar measureless of which everything is a part of.

Now to explain this touch in simple qualifications, castle in the sky a purification assemble line, lead which a type or part of the measureless whole is put lead, and has to sip regular processes till it emerges as the previous product. The dirty part undergoes regular processes till it becomes good.

Rescuing Afghanistan Buddhist History

Rescuing Afghanistan Buddhist History Image
"The Lost Buddhas of Afghanistan" (David Adams Films)

Last year [2010] the French archeological mission cooperating with the Afghan National Institute of Archeology began an excavation of an ancient Buddhist settlement at the Mes Aynak temple complex and mine.

Mes Aynak has the second-largest known unexploited copper deposits in the world. The team is racing to rescue as much as possible before the Chinese mining work begins.

Sacred buried treasure can be found throughout Afghanistan (Wall Street Journal)

The Afghan government awarded mining rights to the China Metallurgical Group Corporation [in collaboration with the Chinese government], which is keen to begin work at the site, 25 miles (40 km) from the capital Kabul.

First the Taliban mindlessly dynamited 1,500+ year old statues of the Buddha, the tallest in the world. Now a massive ancient Buddhist monastery is under threat in Afghanistan from a copper and rare earth mining company.

Mining in Afghanistan (NPR)

[This is so valuable to China that it recently pledged $3 billion to Nepal to build up its Lumbini as the Buddha's birthplace. This diverts attention from its more probable location in Islamic Afghanistan, which has many precious archeological sites that neither Chinese capitalists, atheist-communists, nor Afghani Muslims want more attention for.]

A Chinese company intends to blow up an ancient Buddhist monastery south of Kabul to make way for a massive copper mine. The plan has sparked outrage among Afghan and French archeologists, who have recently uncovered more than 100 statues within a large spiritual complex that includes seven burial mounds (stupas) built to house the relics of saints.

Located in a mountainous region southeast of Kabul, Mes Aynak is a hill topped by a 4500-square-meter monastery. [Monasteries were often built near precious metal deposits, which were used to create sacred art on the site.]

Although the site was spotted by archaeologists in the 1960s, it was never excavated. During the late 1990s, the hill was home to an al-Qaida " training camp," according to a 2004 report by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.

In recent years, looters damaged much of the monastic complex in search of antiquities, according to Nader Rassouli, director of Afghanistan's National Institute of Archaeology in Kabul, which is also participating in the current excavations.

Two millennia ago, this region served as a critical conduit in the spread of Buddhism to Central Asia and China, says T. Richard Blurton, an archaeologist and curator at London's British Museum who has excavated in Afghanistan. He says Mes Aynak can provide new data on both the origin and demise of Buddhism in this culturally fertile region.

In Tibet On Buddhist Pilgrimage

In Tibet On Buddhist Pilgrimage Image
The Dalai Lama on Sunday stressed that India "must take the lead" in promoting "secular ethics" with "Indian tradition of non-violence and harmony among various faiths," to present a model before the rest of the world. He was speaking in Rishikesh, India where spiritual gurus drawn from various faiths said that voluntary efforts must complement governmental initiatives in cleaning the Ganges River and addressing other pressing environmental concerns. "You should be proud of your nation, and you should be proud of your spiritual heritage. [India] must continue to promote non-violence and harmony among different faiths (no matter where you are)," the Dalai Lama told The Indian Express, when asked about the challenges facing the country.


Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, began Tuesday a three-day visit to Slovenia during which he said he would not meet with top political officials.

MARIBOR, Slovenia (AFP) - The Dalai Lama praised on Tuesday Chinese citizens' increasing criticism of Beijing's policy on Tibet, but saw little chance for a short-term solution on the region. "Things are hopeful in the long run, very hopeful, but in the short term, (it is) very difficult," the Tibetan spiritual leader said when asked by journalists about a possible solution that would allow him to return to Tibet.


Tibet is becoming the biggest renewable energy regions in China with the most solar power plants.

30 Days Of Ostara Day 1
Ostara is the Wiccan name for Font Equinox. The name has been modeled just the once Easter, single out of the ordinary name of the identical Goddess; Ostara, Eostre, Easter, Ester, Astarte. The Christians create named their duplicate of the Jewish holiday Pesach Easter, because that is what they applauded, and replaced with the new symbolism and schooling. Pesach is in all usefulness the Jewish celebration of Font Equinox, the spring-time New Rendezvous, Rosh Hashanah single the Autumn New Rendezvous. The Jews do not indication equinoxes, but create a invariable get for their carousing.
