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.

Christianity Indo-European Vedic

Jesus & Krishna

I have two questions for everyone.

1. What are your honest thoughts about Christ (the idea) and Jesus (the potential person) if he existed. This question is two fold as Christ the idea or title could represent the archetype of the Indo-European savior / Sun God ( Mithras, Saoshyant, Maitreya, Kalki, Sol Invictus, Krishna, Shakyamuni Buddha etc) or the divine Child of the Sky father (Heracles, Dionysus, Thor, Indra, Tammuz, Marduk, Gilgamesh). Both lists overlap strongly. The second fold being the man of the historical record that is Jesus as known by contemporary Christianity.

2. The second question is what are your honest thoughts Krishna? (No matter your Indo-European group of faith path) Also on being respectful to Krishna and Krishna worship as an avatar or extension of Indo-European archetype like the above regardless of the Hare Krishna / ISKON movement’s tendency toward monotheistic interpretations of God.

In your responses please be as polite as possible regardless if you disagree or agree with ideas regarding the figures above. However, do speak your mind so that we can all learn.

The reason why I bring this up is that these two spiritual figures are probably the most prominent ones you will encounter today. Christianity is responsible for the creation of the Judeo-Christian faith that is ingrained in the Americas today, but is also responsible in turn for the preservations of various European and Indo-European morals, virtues, and concepts that it absorbed in the west. In the Eastern Orthodoxy it may reflect the last branches of Roman style imperial understanding and even mystical interpretations that were considered heretical in the west.

Regarding Krishna worship, the various Vaishnavism branches are probably the most internationally reaching of any Indian based religions. Most so-called Vedic content in the west is linked to a form of Vaishnavism or Krishna worship. More people know of the Bhagavad Gita and the Mahābhārat than the actual Rig Vedas or Upanishads it seems. Therefore, the popularity of this religion is quickly becoming the face of “Hinduism” as one knows it in the west (and even in the East to some degree).

The last question would be are these two faiths and representation coming to close together? Where they are at risk of one being absorbed by another and running the understanding between them? In particular regards to missionary work being done in India where “tricking”, for lack of a better term, people into conversation by correlating the Gods into being the same as Christian God/s or lesser is a common practice.

While I have my personal opinions and biases, which I have voiced here a few times, I think it would be best to gather a few opinions of that which is out there.

Zeus / Jupiter.

Another Divine interpretation of the Indo European Sky Father Dyēus Phter. The example of the father, husband, ruler, and masculinity be itself. Often also seen as synonymous with the sun and solar tradition. Whether the examples are of certain morality or of interpretations of the divinity within life the sky father is the predominantly the keeper of the balance between chaos and order. A balance that the world could use right now.

Oh Zeus, father Zeus, Yours is the Kingdom of Heaven, and you watch men’s deeds, the crafty and the right, and You are who cares for beasts’ transgression and justice.
–Archilochus, Fragment 177

Does this sound familiar?
Just because Christianity adopted and changed Dyēus Phter to meet their own intentions, doesn’t mean we should stray away from the King of the Gods. The sky father. Whether seen as an archetype or a reflection of the actual King of the Heavens through Zeus, Odin / Tyr, Indra, The Hindu Trimūrti , or various others in the Indo-European and European pagan traditions, Dyēus Phter is an important governing figure to European Paganism.
