ODIN

Image
In Norse mythology, Odin is the king of the Æsir. He is a god of war and death, as well as a sky god and the god of wisdom and poetry. Along with being a god, he is the All-Father of all the Nordic gods. He is also heavily associated with magic. In Germanic religion and mythology, the supreme god. His cult, although widespread among the Germanic tribes, was sometimes subordinated to that of his son Thor.



What we understand from recent research is that, in the ancient past...The Devas had great influence in the eastern parts of earth while the west were under the influence of Asuras. We can see Mayan civilization, Danava worship in Ireland and Germanic tribes worshiped  Æsir ( Asuras). 





 Being blinded in one eye and being the "guru" of the asuras (i.e. gods who seek power), and seeing the etymological connection of asura and æsir, shukra seems to have some basis in being identified with Odin. Odin then can be associated in the east astrologically with Venus. Shukra was the teac…

Odiyan : The untold legend

Image
Odiyan was the word used to describe people who practiced odi vidya (a form of black magic) that allowed them to change form. The odiyans, known for their physical prowess, were the product of a vicious caste system, black magic and thirst for power.  The powers As the folklore goes , the odiyans used to apply an oil obtained from killed human fetus  on their ear . This was supposed to give them powers to assume forms that they desired. They never changed into the forms or object they intended to be,  but created a sensory illusion on his prey. Odiyan would assume the shape of a bull or a cat or  even rocks and lay on the route that the victim routinely uses at night .when the victim approaches he would transform instantly and kills the prey within seconds . The question that popped in my mind was , why go to such lengths to kill someone if he could be stabbed or shot like the assassins do these days. The reasons told by my grandmother were : 1.Most of the able bodied men at the time …

Halloween : The inner meanings

Image
Samhain (sow-in) marked the end of summer and the harvest and heralded in the colder months. Celts believed that on the night before the new year the boundaries between world of the living and the dead become blurred.

Since there is a great flow of energy this day, the witches and other praticers used this day for many tantric activities.


Traditionally people wore costumes, animal skins and heads and attempted to tell each other's fortunes.

Most stories about the origin of Halloween correctly state that Halloween had its origins among the ancient Celts.

Halloween is a rite with pagan roots.To celebrate, the people built bonfires, wore masks and costumes in order to prepare for the arrival of spirits. Fire rituals and divination were part of their celebration. Pagan priests even offered animal sacrifices.

Based on historical facts, Samhain came from the Gaelic word “Samhuinn” which literally means “summer’s end.” For pagans, Samhain is not the God of the death but instead, the yea…

Tajmahal : The True Story

Image
The story of the Taj Mahal that most of us have known about may not be the real truth. Herein Mr. P. N. Oak presents an interesting set of proofs that show a completely different story. Contrary to what visitors are made to believe the Tajmahal is not a Islamic mausoleum but an ancient Shiva Temple known as Tejo Mahalaya which the 5th generation Moghul emperor Shahjahan commandeered from the then Maharaja of Jaipur. The Taj Mahal, should therefore, be viewed as a temple palace and not as a tomb. That makes a vast difference. You miss the details of its size, grandeur, majesty and beauty when you take it to be a mere tomb. When told that you are visiting a temple palace you wont fail to notice its annexes, ruined defensive walls, hillocks, moats, cascades, fountains, majestic garden, hundreds of rooms archaded verendahs, terraces, multi stored towers, secret sealed chambers, guest rooms, stables, the trident (Trishul) pinnacle on the dome and the sacred, esoteric Hindu letter "OM" carv…
