... in the east. A canopy revolving as a world satellite and shining as a sun is the only explanation available here. The old thought of almost every people and race presents the fact that in the earliest times the sun was a subordinated or subaltern power, under the control of the water- spirit, called the "serpent", "dragon" or "demon", which is everywhere found first worshiped as a good and beneficent power, and afterward overcome by the advancing power of the sun. I think I have proved beyond controversy that the mythic serpent, under whatever name and wherever found, was the deified spirit of the watery skies. The wavey form of that ...

33. The Cosmic String of Pearls [Journals] [Aeon]
... polar axis at one point in its development looked like a string of pearls, and if the serpent was a common symbol of the axis, it follows that memories must exist of a serpent transformed into a string of beads. With the following selection of these memories, I barely scratch the surface of a wholly unexplored field of enquiry. Dragons and serpents commonly meet with their deaths by being dismembered and their parts in creation myths frequently form the cosmos. Occasionally we come across indications that the fragments of the dismembered serpent correspond to the vertical sections of the polar axis. Witness the following medieval cure for snakebite: "A worm came creeping he tore asunder a man. Then ...

... , is it possible to arrive at a true understanding of the origins of Indra's cult, much of which has been lost or otherwise obscured with the passage of untold millennia. A summary of Indra's career would include the following mythological motives: (1 ) his unusual birth and rapid rise to power; (2 ) the defeat of the dragon Vritra; (3 ) the winning of the sun and initiation of the dawn; (4 ) the deliverance of the waters/cows from the mountain-like prison of the dragon; (5 ) the ordering of the cosmos and the support of heaven; (6 ) the discovery of Soma, the beverage of the gods. We ...

... was adored as "Heart of the People". According to Burgoa the earth was supposed to be "supported" by this "Heart". Apparently it was also the source of Natural Energy, or the magical symbol of that source and of the energy itself.21 The serpent may have been of similar significance to the Chinese red dragon which was seen "coiling and revolving" before the birth of the Emperor Wu. It coiled and revolved because it was inaugurating a new era. As the revolving dragon it inaugurated each spring a new year. The naga (serpent god) was, as De Visser shows, the dragon of India. Northern Buddhists absorbed much of ...

... : Moons, Myths and Man by H. S. Bellamy CD Rom Home Last | Contents | Next 8 Gods and Giants The battle of a god-hero against a dragon-monster sometimes takes the form of fight of the gods against an aggressive race of Titans or giants. The view taken in this book is that there is no difference between the dragon with its crew of grisly monsters and the serried ranks of the giants, both being phases or aspects of the breakdown of the Tertiary satellite. In ancient mythology we find various indications of their close relationship or identity. The dragons drop abominable excrements; the Titans hurl huge rocks; fire is in one way or another connected with both ...

... and fully possible truth has to be searched for and, then, whatever is left over as "false" has to be explained in the vision of the subjects and of their immediate descendant, and finally in objective psychological and anthropological terms. A much broader range of cases may advance the argument. There is, for example, the dragon. Everyone knows what a dragon is. All do not know that it is a theophany, a divine manifestation. And that the creature is closely tied to visions of events in the sky, many times repeated. Chamber's Encyclopedia, defunct now for many years, carried a charming passage on the dragon: The dragon appears in the ...

... . For every instance previously cited, many others have been left out simply to avoid excessive monotony.) As a final example of overlapping imagery, I shall cite the case of the circular serpent. All of the Saturnian gods- Atum-Re, An, Yama, Huang-ti, Quetzalcoatl, Kronos- reside within the fold of a serpent (dragon, fish, crocodile, etc.). But this symbol cannot be evaluated in isolation from the celestial earths, eggs, wheels, temples, crowns, and eyes which fill the ancient lexicon. In the general mystic tradition, reports Cirlot, "the dragon, the serpent or the fish biting its tail, is a representative ...
