Introduction And It Came to Pass And it came to pass, When men began to multiply on the face of the Earth and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair, and they took them wives of all which they chose. There were giants upon the Earth in those days and also thereafter too, When the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men and they bare children to them- the same Mighty Men of old, Men of Renown. The reader, if familiar with the King James English version of the Bible, will recognize these verses in chapter 6 of Genesis as the preamble to the story of the Deluge, the Great Flood in which Noah, huddled in an ark, was saved to repopulate the Earth.

MUITO ALÉM DAS PALAVRAS E SENTIDOS: SUMÉRIOS - OS INVENTORES PRIMORDIAIS A Suméria é a civilização mais antiga que se tem registro, estima-se que eles viveram a mais de 3.500 anos antes de Cristo. Muitos chegam a estimar que eles datam muito mais de 6 mil anos. No quarto milênio antes de Cristo, as primeiras populações sumerianas teriam se deslocado do planalto do Irã até se fixarem na região da Caldeia, que compreende a Baixa e a Média Mesopotâmia. Provavelmente, Quish foi a primeira cidade fundada e logo foi seguida pelo surgimento de cidades como Eridu, Nipur, Ur, Uruk e Lagash.

A Book of Creatures | A Complete Guide to Entities of Myth, Legend, and Folklore Ishtar Como ya saben, en esta serie de posts sobre dioses, escogemos una deidad al azar de entre las muchas que existen entre las diversas culturas y mitologías del mundo, y hablamos sobre ellas analizando las similitudes e influencias con otras culturas, tratando de divulgar la mitología más allá de la tradición judeocristiana a la que estamos acostumbrados en occidente. Hoy le toca el turno a Ishtar, diosa mesopotámica. Se asocia a otras diosas como Asherá, de quien ya hablamos aquí. Ishtar es la diosa mesopotámica de la fertilidad, el amor, la guerra y el sexo, y personificación divina del planeta Venus. Aunque su representación suele ser femenina, veremos que tiene rasgos masculinos y que en algunas representaciones los comparte. Dependiendo de la leyenda en la que nos la encontremos, Ishtar puede ser una chica mimada y caprichosa que siempre se sale con la suya, una muchacha inocente y a merced de los deseos de otros o una poderosa guerrera.

Horus and Jesus | Egyptian Deities and Myths Compared to the Bible There are few books that have caused as much controversy as the Holy Bible. For centuries now, it has been regarded by many to be the "one true word of God". The writers of the Bible may have been human beings... but it is said that those writers had "divine inspiration" for their words. The birth of the Christ child, or Jesus, that comes to save mankind from damnation is told in both Matthew and Luke in the New Testament. It describes a child, born in the stables of an inn to a virgin... a child that would shed his blood for all of those who would otherwise be forever separated from God. However, religions and worship of deities existed before the writings of the Bible. Horus One important note about the gods and goddesses of ancient Egypt... they were not one-dimensional beings. Hathor There are differing accounts of this... some of which have Isis as the wife of Horus, rather than his mother, which is a bit confusing.

Hear The Epic of Gilgamesh Read in the Original Akkadian and Enjoy the Sounds of Mesopotamia Long ago, in the ancient civilization of Mesopotamia, Akkadian was the dominant language. And, for centuries, it remained the lingua franca in the Ancient Near East. But then it was gradually squeezed out by Aramaic, and it faded into oblivion once Alexander the Great Hellenized (Greekified) the region. Now, 2,000+ years later, Akkadian is making a small comeback. At Cambridge University, Dr. Follow Open Culture on Facebook and Twitter and share intelligent media with your friends.

summary of mahabharata Summary of the MahabharataThe Mahabharata tells the story of two sets of paternal first cousins--the five sons of the deceased king Pandu (the five Pandavas and the one hundred sons of blind King Dhritarashtra--who became bitter rivals, and opposed each other in war for possession of the ancestral Bharata kingdom with its capital in the "City of the Elephants," Hastinapura , on the Ganga river in north central India.

Mahabharatha and Trojan war - Greek influence on India Pandavas were sent to forest for 14 years, similarly the Greek-Trojan conflict went on for nearly 14 years. The actual conflict described by Homer in Iliad is only 14 days. Same is the case with Mahabharata war, the war at Kurukshetra went on only for 14 days. The Trojan war scene of Iliad starts with reluctance of Achilles to fight the war. Arjuna does the same in the beginning of Mahabharata war in the beginning of the war. During the Mahabharata war, the war was stopped in the evenings and was resumed in the next day. Then, why such a story had been written? Note another character in the war scene, Sanjayan describes the war, scene by scene to the blind king Dhridarashra, using his extraordinary vision. Bhishma had taken the role of Hector, the righteous son of Priam, Duryodhana has taken the role of Paris.

The Bhagavad Gita as an Integral Part of the Epic Mahabharata The Bhagavad Gita as an Integral Part of the Epic Mahabharata The Bhagavad Gita is an integral part of a vast epic, the great Sanskrit poem, The Mahabharata. According to the scholar J.A.B. van Buitenen the Mahabharata has had an immense influence, more than any other text, on Indian civilization. The Mahabharata is not just another tale of the ceaseless human drama, but it is ‘the storehouse of political wisdom, philosophical doctrine, religious doctrines, and a splendid work of literary art’ (M.N. Indian tradition has accepted Krishna Dvaipayana Vyasa as poet author of the Mahabharata. Before paper was introduced in 1000 AD, the Sanskrit texts were written on birch bark in the upper north India and palm leaf in the south (J.A.B. van Buitenen). With 100,000 couplets, the Mahabharata is the world’s longest poem and the longest literary work. The dates for the writing of the Mahabharata vary.

Creation Myths Shillluk (Africa) [Excerpted and edited from Folklore in the Old Testament, J.G. Frazer.] The creator Juok moulded all people of earth. In the land of the whites he found a pure white earth or sand, and out of it he shaped white people. The way in which he modeled human beings was this. Sikh For millions upon millions, countless years was spread darkness, When existed neither earth nor heaven, but only the limitless Divine Ordinance. Then were not Brahma, Vishnu or Shiva: None other than the Sole Lord was visible. Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva He created and to maya-attachment gave increase. The Creator fashioned the Nine Abodes [of sensation]; In the Tenth [the superconscious mind] is lodged the Lord, unknowable, limitless. Tahitian He was. Vodun Damballah (Sky-serpent loa and wise and loving Father archetype) created all the waters of the earth. When he shed his skin in the sun, releasing all the waters over the land, the sun shone in the water and created the rainbow. Yokut
