Slavic symbols

Many differents symbols in all times in Pagan Times was very used!

One of most important was the Solar Symbol for the God of Sun: Dadzbog, with so many symbols like SWASTIKA (who it’s not nazi symbols but used in all Europe since beginning of history and it is strongly emphasized that this symbol is for Religion!)

SWASTIKA or SUNWHEEL was and is again so important in Slavic Faith but in all Pagan Religion in Europe and exist since 10 000 years! In Slavic countries first Swastika found is more of 6000 years old!!! it means good favor of gods, the quest for success, victory in battle, good yields. Like some pagan celebrations that will last until today, despite Christianity, Pagan symbols are still used in many countries.

In Russia two symbols was so important for Sun (the HORSE, was a sacred animals and the ROOSTER too). These 2 symbols from the Scythian art, which shows again a close link between them and Slavs! The symbol of the Rooster is fundamental and it will last longer than others. They are found in Embroidery and lace of Russia and the Balkans.

RECE BOGA is a proto Slavic symbol of the Slavic Faith (the Hands of God), it’s 4 hands (with 3, 5 or 6 fingers) stylised in a cross and often represented with 4 Solar symbols (Swastika) between the hands… The 4 Hands represent the 4 directions of a suprem God but no gods are represented with 4 hands … so maybe it can only be a sacred symbol Slave with a wrong name …. Great symbol used in all Slavic Territory!

The world for Slavic believers was represented like a TREE or like 3 LEVELS with in the top Gods, in the center, Humans people and the last level for the world of Dead. 3 words to explain the differents levels are Praw, Yaw and Naw.

Perun was the God of Warriors and lightning and in the last years of Paganism the most important God! three symbols are identified for him and they protect people against ligthning and bad things in life. One of these is the AXE TALISMAN who represent the weapon of Perun.(like the Hammer of Thor)

SWARZYCA it’s a great Slavic Pagan Symbol or maybe Proto Slavic! like Hand of God it’s a pure Slavic Symbol. The carved Swarzyca appear in a wall stone of a collegiate church at Kruszwica in Poland and it certainly a part from an ancient Slavic Temple in Poland destroyed.

It’s not really a symbol but I need to show MASKS of an important celebration as DZIADY. these MASKS are used during the Ritual when Spirits of the underworld come back on Earth. It’s the good day for them to visit us and their Families but at the place of celebration, humans can’t look them except Slavic “Priests” with these Masks to look like spirits too. It’s a really important thing!

TRISKEL means many things so it’s why it’s an important Symbol like the others (Past, Present, Future), (Standbuy, Sleep, Dream), (Childhood, Adulthood, Old Age), (Sky, Air, Land) it’s also the symbol for communication with the divine 3 levels.

Many more Symbols are used in Slavic Countries for differents Gods or other but here are the most important and today in the come back of our Faith we need to wear them with Honor like our Ancestors!!!

Medovukha (Медовуха)

2 Comments

Medovukha – bautura cu specific rusesc, apare pe mesele slavilor pagani, inca din cele mai vechi timpuri.

Datorita mierii, cu proprietatille sale naturiste, aceasta bautura a fost considerata unica ce putea fi folositoare in tratarea bolilor. Medovuha e o bautura nationala pentru rusi, precum whisky pentru Scotia, sake pentru Japonia sau tequila pentru Mexic.

Medovukha, avand la baza mierea fermentata, e cunoscuta sub numele de mied la popoarele germanice sau hidromel la cele latine.

Cei mai vechi indoeuropeni considerau mierea drept un produs sacru. Obiectele gasite in sanctuare, incepand cu mil. 7-6 i.e.n, aveau reprezentate imagini in care se putea observa procesul de fermentare a mierii.

Indoeuropenii credeau ca in Lumea de Sus, in Ceruri, exista rauri de miere, iar bautura din miere era legata de imaginea “ploii de miere”, care curge pe pamant din raul celest. De aceea, bautura poarta ideea de “nemurire”. E bautura zeilor, nemuririi, cea care da intelepciune.

Aceasta bautura era raspandita si la germani, romani, greci, triburile baltice, vechii prusaci, celti, slavi si finlandezi, dar mai ales la stramosii nostrii traci.

La germanici, miedul era considerat drept un dar al zeilor pentru oameni din partea lui Odin (Wotan), Parintele Ceresc al oamenilor.

Tot la germanicii scandinavi, aceasta bautura era vazuta drept “apa vie”, care poate aduce la viata mortii.

La slavi, bautura din miere avea un caracter ritualic desavarsit, fiind dedicata zeilor.

Mierea nefermentata, la greci, purta numele de ambrozie si constituia hrana zeilor, mostenita de la titani si giganti.

In Rusia, bautura din miere avea numele de “miod” sau “medok”. Aceasta bautura se pregatea punand mierea la fermentat de la 5 la 20 ani in butoaie nesterilizate de stejar (arborele sfant al indoeuropenilor).

La triburile slave pagane, stejarul este arborele cel sfant al zeului Perun.

Incepand cu sec XI, se practica metoda fierberii, datorita careia bautura putea fi gata peste o luna; totusi mierea trebuia sa fie sterilizata prin fierbere.

In perioada medievala, in Rusia, bautura era folosita in ritualuri care serbau zilele de nasteri sau in sarbatorile de familie, ca semn de ospitalitate, fiind consumata inainte de masa.

In sec XV, aproape ca se sfarseste pregatirea bauturii, ce presupunea lasarea la fermentat timp de 5-20 ani si dispare ritualul folosirii bauturii inainte de masa.

In sec XVII, medovukha pregatita prin fierbere devine rara, deoarece ea a fost inlocuita cu vinul (venit pe filiera crestina, mai ales dupa tirania iudeo-crestina a lui Petru cel Mare).

Catre sec XIX, pregatirea prin fierbere a mierii renaste, iar odata cu ea, si miodul sub numele de “medovukha”.

Reteta:

3 l apa (1.5 l)

450-500 g miere naturala (200-250 g)

50 g drojdie ( 30 gr)

1. Puneti apa la incalzit pana la o temperatura de ce mult 80 de grade, adaugati miere si amestecati mereu pentru ca mierea sa nu se lipeasca de vas.

2. Nu lasati ca intreaga compozitie sa fiarba.

3. Luati spuma.

4. Raciti bautura pana la 30 grade,apoi adaugati drojdia.

5. Daca doriti, puteti adauga sucul unei jum de lamaii.

6. Lasati sticla la rece timp de o saptamana.
