61. Devi And Venus [Journals] [Kronos]
... ; also like Athene, she is redoubtable as a fighter whose weapons include a shield and a sword. The very word "Devi" has been translated by some Indologists as "that which is by its nature Light and Manifestation" (thus, e.g ., 8, p. vi). True, in the classical Indian sources available to me, I do not find any explicit statement linking the Devi to Jupiter (Zeus) (called in classical Hindu sources, inter alia, Brihaspati), as Pallas Athene is linked to that (planetary) deity from whose head she sprang (see, however, the sections "Sixteen" and "Jupiter and ...

62. The Garden of Venus [Journals] [Aeon]
... health-giving spring, together with an equally fabulous garden and the plant of life (Haoma), is said to have been located atop Hara Berezaiti, the World Mountain of Persian lore. [4 ] Lenormant long ago called attention to the striking parallels between Iranian sacred cosmology and that from ancient India:: "Like the Meru of the Indians, Hara Berezaiti is the Pole, the centre of the world, the fixed point around which the sun and the planets perform their revolutions. Analogously to the Ganga of the Brahmans, it possesses the celestial fountain Ardvi-Sura, the mother of all terrestrial waters and the source of all good things. In the midst of the lake formed ...

... of another author. In a popular series of papers in SIS publications, Moe Mandelkehr has argued that a catastrophic event occurred in approximately 2300 BC, caused by the encounter of the Earth with a dense meteoroid stream. He was naturally justifiably excited when he found an article by R. N. Iyengar, Professor of Civil Engineering at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, which draws the same conclusion from different material. The paper was published in the Indian Journal of the History of Science, 39(1 ), 2004, pp. 11-49. To give a flavour of Iyengar's article, it seems fair to publish his abstract, then his summary and conclusions, and ...

... above all, their use as supports. The idea of propping the firmament is common to the deluge myths of many entirely unrelated peoples. In a Chinese tale the monster Kung-Kung, of dragon shape, knocks with its misshapen head against one of the pillars of heaven and breaks it, whereupon a deluge comes over the land. South American Indians say that the Great Flood was caused by the World Tree- a kind of tent-pole- being chopped down. Atlas bears the broad vault on his shoulders (Hesiod) or guards the pillars which support the firmament (Homer). Quetzalcoatl, the great Toltec-Aztec god, is often described as supporting the skies with his shoulders and hands. Sometimes ...

... with the fact that he had another, and correct, Apis, would indicate a typographical and engraver's error in the original; but I have not seen this alluded to till now. The drawing always has been of the typical bird of our title, which Caesius adopted in his Paradisaeue Ales; but it sometimes is Avis Indica, the Indian Bird. The planisphere in Gore's English edition of Flammarion's Astronomie Populaire has the constellation as the House Swallow, probably taken from early ornithological lists or the lexicons; for our Andrews-Freund translates Apus as the Black Martin, the English synonym of the Hirundo apus of Linnaeus, the Cypselus apus of William Yarrell, not a swallow, however, ...

67. Book Shelf [Journals] [Aeon]
... by Vine Deloria Jr.( Scribner, New York, 1995) Reviewed by Ev Cochrane Upon meeting them, authors seldom live up to expectations Not so with Vine Deloria. I first met Vine over a dozen years ago on the campus of Iowa State University, where he had returned to deliver the keynote address at a symposium on American Indian affairs (a Sioux himself, Deloria is arguably the most important chronicler of Native American affairs). A large man with a thick black mane, Deloria made a powerful impression on all those in the audience, including yours truly. Iconoclast extraordinaire, Deloria's address was peppered with side-splitting humor, irreverence, and more than a little angst ...

... an approach to a subject from more than one discipline, will help to demonstrate how a phenomenon directly related to planetary disaster can come to be paraded as miraculous, rather than involving a derangement of the imperturbable order in the solar system. Thus in Worlds in Collision, in a later chapter, I narrated a tale told by the Menomini Indians, an Algonquin tribe: "The little boy made a noose and stretched it across the path, and when the Sun came to that point the noose caught him around the neck and began to choke him, until he almost lost his breath. It became dark." The Sun cried for help, but no one who tried ...

... interspersed with uprooted trees. They seem to have been torn apart and dismembered and then consolidated under catastrophic conditions. Skin, ligament, hair, flesh, can still be seen."1 Then human artifacts were found under the mass of torn animals and splintered trees. These artifacts do not differ much from those used only recently by the Indians of the Tanana Valley in Alaska. Mammoths, mastodons, superbison, lions, horses were found among other animals. Since then similar finds of bones and artifacts have been unearthed all over Asia. They bring to mind the finds made long ago in the "Ivory Islands" of the Arctic Ocean above Siberia. "These islands were ...

... that did not move. To indicate that this was no idle speculation by the ancient Egyptians, we also find Ra himself lauded as he who dost lie without movement' [64]. If Ra was the Sun, as mythologists would have us believe, why was it said to have been without movement'? Therefore when the Makiritare Indians of Venezuela speak of Wanadi, a celestial being in the highest sky' who lit everything down to the very bottom' without ever setting, we can be sure that they are referring to the same planet Saturn. Wanadi is like a sun that never sets', they say [65]. Unless I am mistaken, there ...
