“Journeys in the Kali Yuga: A Pilgrimage from Esoteric India to Pagan Europe.”

Here is an interesting interview from a Youtuber called The Modern Platonist. In this video he speaks with Aki Cederberg who is a European Pagan author, and creative artist, who wrote a book called “Journeys in the Kali Yuga: A Pilgrimage from Esoteric India to Pagan Europe.” I have order the book myself but have yet to fully take a deep dive so I am not able to make a full review.

There are a few points in this interview that really resonated with me regarding my purpose, what I feel is a calling, and my goal with the Hammer and Vajra project.

In this interview he speaks of European Paganism being a broken line. This is something that I feel like isn’t 100% true but objectively can be summarized as true. While we have had folklorist, theologians, mystics, and certain “orders” what have appeared over the years our direct connections for the most part are broken. Cederberg speaks of his journey to India to become an initiate in the Nagababa Sādhanā. He talked regarding taking the Vedic path and bringing the linage of unbroken Indo-European faith back to the European Paganism but keeping it the flavor of European Paganism. In sort of a syncretic method. Also like reenacting the Indo-European migratory path again. This would be for the goal of creating an unbroken line and almost stitching European Paganism back together with its past. I myself have have performed many travels and working through imitation in a similar path, though nothing as extreme as Sadhu from India (Though the term Shugen for Vajrayana buddhism is derived from Sadhu there fore Shugendo is like the Buddhist Sādhanā). He also mentioned how European paganism needs figured like the Sadhu who are adherence to Odin, Veles, Dionysus, etc, in order to bring back the divine connection to the everyday people. This is something that the Hammer and Vajra project supports for all traditions. Part of our goal is not only to achieve something syncretic like this but to highlight others who are making such strives in the west. This too is what I think Odinism needs as well.

In this new year, with danger and political unrest coming to a boil across the world, it is time for a revival of true spirituality of the people. I hope this marks the year where many of you start this journey as well.
May the Gods bless you all and lead you to wisdom and strength.

The Shiva Pill

This new year consider taking the Shiva pill.
As you may know I practice a syncretic faith of Vedic Heathenism. So I see the aspect of the Sky Father and Godhead primarily found in Odin and Shiva-Ruda.

I feel Shiva-Rudra / Odin adoration represents the best for those who are seeking wisdom, strength, and self improvement. Especially for males and their Devi / Goddess counterparts show a deep understanding for females to which both sexes can learn and grow in their individual strength and in proper Dharma and morale compass.

Here is a list of posts I have made regarding my own journey and understanding of my path focusing on Shiva.
